IS DEAD MONARCH OF SWEDEN HAD LONG ILLNESS. HAD YIELDED THRONE TO HIB SON, CROWN PRINCE GUBTAVE. Stockholmn, Dec. 8. —King Oscar died at #:15 Sunday. Members of the royal family and the chief representatives of the Swedish church In Stockholmn were at the bed side. The king has been ill for sev eral years. He suffered first from facial paralysis. Then he became a victim ot Insomnia. Symptoms of acute kidney trouble recently ap peared. When Oscar yielded the reins of power to his son, Crown Prince Gus tavo, as regent, a week ago, It was announced he sought only a short rest and would soon resume the crown. Now it is believed he fully realized his condition and had no idea he would ever take up the scepter again. For a monarch King Oscar has played his part on a comparatively small stage. Many Europenan states men place him, however, high among the sovereigns of his time. In per sonal accomplishments he was easily foremost. He wrete well in prose and verse, knew many languages and was envied as a painter by professional artists. The king was born January 21, 1829, the son of Oscar L. and grandson of Charles XIV., the famous Marshal Bernadotte. He married Princess Sophia of Nassau in 1857, and succeeded to the throne of Nor way and Sweden in 1872. His reign was one of unbroken peace as to for eign relations, but saw the dissllutton of Sweden and Norway, which his ef forts retarded but could not prevent. His majesty's Swedish subjects idol ized him. Norway thought so well of him that It offered Its crown, after breaking the union, to one of his sons. Through all Europe he was admired and loved. Physically he was powerfully built, handsome, and until a few years ago in robust health. Within the palace, members of the royal family, high eccleslastioal dig nitaries, the premier and the minister of foreign adairs had been assembled for some hours in the king's Btudy, to which room his majesty had been re moved In bed at noon when still un conscious. This measure was taken to enable all the family and the offi cials to be present at the last moments without undue crowding. The physicians In attendance admin istered stimulants, consisting of sa line solutions, camphor and digitalis, which were Injected at Intervals, and they relieved also as far as possible the vascular trouble from which the king has suffered severely all through the Illness. They, however, could ac complish very little more than the bringing back of their patient to mo mentary consciousness. Every effort was made to reduce the pain to a minimum, and this apparently was successful. Diner—Walter, bring me a cutlet, and also a big boue for my dog. I will pay extra for that. Waiter—Yes, air.

A smelter, especially adapted to the treatment of its copper sulphide ore, will be installed In the near future by the Scotch Bonnet Mining com pany, whose property 1b located In Park county, Montana. While making his daily inspection of the Occidental coal mine, near Palmer, 30 miles from Tacoma, recent ly, Joseph Kraczek, the fire bosa, aged 23 years, encountered what Is known as white damp and fell backward, dead. The body was discovered by the men going to work on the day shift. About 40 men have applied for work at the Grauby smelter in Grand Forks, 21 of whom were put to work, the re mainder to go to work as soon as the smelter gets running properly. It is stated by officials of the Granby com pany that the Western Federation of Miners has pickets posted on the road to the Bmelter with the Intention of persuading any men who might start up .the hill to turn back. The Spokane Lead Mines company Is constructing rafts at Newport to convey the machinery for the new concentrator at Metaline. Another shipper has rejoined the list of Rossland, B. C„ In the Evening Star, which sent 30 tons to the Trail smelter. The Evening Star is being operated under a lease for a year by Andrew K. Idler. The lessee expects to ship at least 1000 tons during the next six months. The mine was oper ated in the early days of the camp. Recent reportß from the Lake Che lan country are that the Helena Gold and Copper mine upon wblch J. P. Graves holds an option for two years, had closed operations for the winter. "There is absolutely no truth in Red den's Btory," said W. D. Greenough recently when asked concerning an alleged statement of N. H. Redden at Lander, Wyo., that the Greenough Brothers had offered him $10,000 if he would sign a statement that the Red Canyon placer properties were salted. The dead body of Edward Wheeldeii, an old prospector, was found recently in his cabin on the outskirts of Nelson B. C. As a producer of the precious metals Nevada occupies a high place among the states and territories of the Union. In value of gold product the state Is outranked only by Colorado, Alaska and California, while its silver output gives It fifth place, Colorado, Montana and Idaho taking precedence. In 1906, according to statistics col lected by the United States geological survey from the producing mining com panies, Navada mines yielded $10,470,- 704 in gold, an increase of $5,200,885 over 1905. The unexpectedly heavy output of the Goldfleld mines was $7,- 026,154, an increase of over $5,010,00# over the preceding year. The Tonopah district, in Nye county, produced $1,304,677 In gold, an amount not ma terially different from I>os. Lincoln county furnished in the Searchlight and De Lamar-Ferguson district an al most equal quantity of gold. Elko and Storey are the only remaining countleM the output of which exceeded $1,000,- 000. OREGON SQUIBS. Supervisor Schmitz of the Wenaha national forest, eastern Oregon, is authorized to spend $1000 for a new trail from the Umatilla river up Thomas Fork to the Summit house, six miles down Dry creejj, thence five miles to the forest boundary. The trail will be completed before the next fire season begins. The Umatilla Wool Growers' asso ciation will meet In Pendleton on Sat urday afternoon, December 21, to con sider fixing the dates of wool sales for next spring, and the importance of poisoning coyotes during the entire month of January. The association has decided to adhere strictly to the. sales days and pool system of dispos ing of the wool clip, and a discussion of the various phases of the subject will be one of the important subjects for discussion at the eomlng meeting. C. A. Shephard will close a deal soon for the leasing of the Pendleton wool en mill and will put the mills In oper ation within two weeks' time. He will employ 30 bands. ARREST BANKER J. O. BROWN.

TO START THE MINES 1 GOLDFIELD IS SAID TO READY FOR WORK. U. S. TROOPS ARE THERE AND MINE OWNERS CLAIM THEY CAN GET MINER 3. Goldfleld, Nev., Dec. 9. —Wednesday the day for reopening the mines In Cioldfleld. An authoritative statement Is made that sufficient men are on the grounds to work the mines. Tne' total number of those that have •ieei< quietly brought in and those who have secretly made application to re turn to their former positions Is placed i t 1000. There are about 1500 Western Federation men out. The men who are to take the places of tbe strikers are not to be housed at tne mines, but will be scattered through the camp and protection for each individual will be guaranteed by the mine owners' associ atlon. Two propositions have been positive ly decided upon, the making an open camp for all time and the early lower ing of the wage scale. At the same time the mine owners' association is going to begin a vigorous crusade to lower the cost of living In Goldfleld. The mine owners' association Is to be greatly enlarged by the organization of the Nevada Mine Owners' associa tion, of which the Goldfleld Mine Own ers' association will be a part. Tne new organization is already well um'er way. The announcement of the determina tion to open the mines on Wednesday is to be made by the Goldfleld Mite Owners' association, and It Is expecte.l that some trouble may ensue. There are now nine companies of troops here, the second detachment from Monterey having gone Into per manent camp on Combination hill, within 300 yards of the mill of *.he Goldfleld Consolidated company. The first detachment which came from San Francisco remains in the camp estab lished In the northwestern part of the city, a mile and a half from the nearest mine. Colonel Reynolds, commanding all of the troops here, is quartered in a tent of the first camp and will remain there. He refuses to say whether he will detail Boldiers to patrol the miles when the attempt is made to reopm, but merely states that the troops are here to preserve order and that they are prepared to handle the situation. Sheriff Ingall* I* Far Away. Sheriff Ingalls of Esmeralda county In which Goldfleld is located, has gone away to some dlßtant mines and the sheriff's office Is In tbe bands of Un der Sheriff Bert Knight, who asserts that he is amply able to handle any crisis that may arise frc:n the attempt to reopen the mines. He has sworn in a dozen deputies. He characterizes the statements made by the mine owners that the union met; are arming themselves and preparing to make trouble as false, and s«ys that, in his belief, there will be no effort made to prevent the mine own era from working the mines with what ever men they may employ. A telegram which the Bheriff sent to Governor Sparks protesting against the presence of federal troops in Gold field remains unanswered. There will be no cooperation between the local peace officers and the troops In the event of any trouble. Statements are being Issued to the public by both the mine owners' a-iso ciation and the officials of the local miners' union setting forth the views of both sides on the situation. From what can be gathered it see-ns probable that the mine owners' associ ation was primarily responsible for the presence of the federal troops here, but that It was not Intended In the first place that troops should be sent at 'his time. li. was intended to have them In readiness to respond to an urgent call, b\it when the fact became public "Jiat the sending of troop* was contem plated the governor was told It would be better to have the troops on the ground, as the miners were Incensed over the fact of troops being held In readiness to come, and might commit violence at any minute. The mine owners then saw the chance to take advantage of the pres ence of the troops here to begin prep arations to reopen. Denial 1* made that miner* from other camp* are to be brongbt In, and the itatement of the owner* I* that they believe enough men can be had In Goldfleld to reopen during the present week, but at the same time the statement 1* made open ly and positively that men from the outside will be brought In If the local men will not accept scrip In part pay ment Tbe statement la freely made here that the mine owners have refused to guarantee the scrip in the manner de manded by the union with the Inten tion of precipitating a struggle and settling, once for all, the question of union domination of Goldfleld. The mine owners' statement Is that they are worn out with the constant struggle between themselves and the union, fnc* that tbey mean to maintain an open camp in the future and be free to employ whomsoever they will with out question by the union. All of tbe mines are picketed at prev ent by union men. aad according to h» statement of the owners It is lmporsi ble for the owner or manager ol a property to visit his property to know what condition It Is in, much less to put men in the mine to work. "BLUE" SUNDAY JARS NEW YORK Tight Lid on Theaters, but Brisk Drink Trade in Cafes. New York, Dec. 9. —New York Sun day treafed Its millions of residents and tens of thousands of week-en' I visitors to tbe novelty of a thoroughly! "Blue" Sunday, the first and probably the last in the history of the melropo- 1 lis. The aldermen will meet Thursday to modify ordinances so far as their authority goes. Broadway was deserted except for; those who found notblng better to do than to walk the streets. Upon the closed doors of the opera houses, the aters, music balls, dancing academics, skating rinks and penny arcades placards bad been posted. Tbcse blun'.ly announced that the places had been closed for the day In accordance with Justice O'Gormen's decision. At the theaters even the box offices were closed, and the advance sales for the week Interrupted. The "Blue" Sunday restraint was ap plied only to places of amusement, and tonight some of the theatrical men de clared that from a saloon standpoint the town was unusually wide open. It was not denied all places having licenses of any description had done a big business, but 'be police insisted that they had not petmitted any viola tion of the liquor law. As the evening grew late and the crojvds left the cafes Broadway began to fill up, and soon a throng such as Is seen on election nights was moving up and down tbe popular thorough fares. MANY SHOWS IN KANSAS CITY. Willis Wood and Majestic Theaters the Only Ones to Close. Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 9. —Klaw & Erlanger Sunday :ilght notified the manager of the Willis Wood theater that they would not permit their com pany of 75 persons, headed by Frank Moulan and Maudo Lillian Berrl, to present Plxley & Lu ler's comic opera, "The Grand Mogul,' at that theater Sunday night, as they did not wish to subject the members of the company to the liability of answering a charge of violating the Sunday laws that for bid labor on Sunday. All other theaters except the Ma jestic, a burlesque house, were open but the performances were not alto gether satisfactory to the patrons at some of the houses, where the man agement used as few actors as possi ble.

With the stock of food fish In tbc United State* growing less each year tbe proposal of tbe American Fisheries Society, made at Its meeting at Erie, that control over the river* and lakes be given to tbe Federal government. Is a matter of timely Interest, says the Philadelphia Record. | "Shad In tbe Delaware are less plen tiful than ever, and tbe record of other rivers where they once abounded la tbe same," said an old fisherman the other day. "Complaint Is rife from the Potomac to the Connecticut. Tbe de pletion of the great lakes 1b deplorable. Tbey are growing less and less capable •f fumlahlng tbelr former supply of fish. "Of course the extension of Federal control la not popular, but there seems to be no other way of meeting the sit uation.

Moreover, artl- Bclal propagation must be carried on tm a great scale and under the direc tion of some authority adequate to He raring Its full results. "The bill now being drafted by Con gressman Shlras of Pittsburg to be Introduced at the next session of Con gress will doubtlessly be opposed by itrlct constructionists of State rights. But Its provisions will be for the gen tral good, and there appears to be no other way of securing tbe supply for future generations." A Joint commission of the States of New York and New Jersey Is now working on laws to be passed by those ;ommonwealths. Pennsylvania has a commission which Is authorized to co operate with It. £ ALL SAT BEFORE HER. jj In no other town than Dublin Is the traveler so Impressed by tbe fact that the public vehicles are really servants of the public. A writer In Mucmlllan's Magazine declares that In Dublin are a people who refuse to be dictated to. No white posts, registered stopping places, are considered. Passengers get In where they will and out where tbey will. Occasionally, of court*, conductors, being, after all, only mortal, deem It necessary to hurry the leisurely pedes trian, who clambers slowly and majes tically Into the car, but bis urging Is always resented. One evening an old dame's feelings proved too much for her. She balled tbe car too lata; we bad passed, and by the time we pulled up aba was sev eral yards down the road. She was becomingly arrayed, I re member, In a spotlessly white mob cap and a blue check apron, that covered ber ample petticoat to tbe very hem. She had a big basket on ber arm, and came trundling after tbe car in a very aggrieved fashion. Perhaps tbe conductor was In a hur ry ; i«rhaps he thought ber pace un necessarily slow ; at any rata, be clang ed the bell vociferously. Jerking her baaket on to tbe foot board and catching the brass rail In one hand, she stood on tbe road and treated him to a flood of eloquence, while he trlod vainly to make her eith er enter the car or release her hold. The driver was growing impatient, and the other occupants were so openly amused that the conductor lost bis tem per. "Will ye get on or will ye not?" he thundered. "Get on? What else would I be do- In', If ye'd only give me time." Then she did condescend to get on, and finally seated herself with a genial smile that embraced tba entire com pany. "My." she remarked, "wbat a hurry we're In! Sure, we have the day be fore us" —It was 0 id the evening— "and that young man rampagln' and Hatterln' as though Ould Nick was af ter him."
