He was first elected to the legislature in 1857. He was re-elected the follow ing year. The following year brought out the true brilliancy of his political acumen.

TWO MINERS ARE KILLED AT CORNUCOPIA Philadelphia. Colonel Alexander K. McClure, widely known In Journal Ism and politics and prominent In Pennsylvania supreme and superior courts, died Sunday at Walllngford, Del., aged 81 years. Mr. McClure was born in Sherman's Valley, Perry county, January 9, 1828. The early years of his life, were spent on his father's farm. At the age of 14, after being fairly well grounded In the rudiments of a commoi school education, his school days ended and he wag apprenticed to James Mar shall, a tanner. But the tannery business was not to his taste. , Before he was 19 years old Mr. Mc Clure had quit the tannery business, acquired a smattering of the art of printing and started a newspaper of h i own at Mifflin. It wag in 1850 that Mr. McClure first entered the "big editorial field," as It was then considered, and became a power In state politics. Through the Interests of Curtin he was given charge of the Chambersburg Reposi tory. At the age of 25 years he ran for auditor general on the whig ticket. The young editor was hope- Baker City, Ore. Robert N. Betts, manager of the Union Companion In the Cornucopia district, 75. miles. from Baker City, left this city this morning at 4 o'clock In company with Coroner Ison In answer to a' message from the mine stating that two min ers Llshmap and Anderson by name were killed yesterday afternoon by an explosion which ( occurred under ground. The miners were working In a drift and had several holes drilled preparatory to setting off a shot. Some of the holes were loaded and It Is presumed that In tampering the powder one of the men struck too had a blow, causing the explosion. Neither Llshman nor Anderson was married and each of the men had re cently begun work In the Union Companion mine. They were rated as reliable men and were good miners. The men had formerly been employed at the Oxbow power project on Snake river. The Union-Companion mine Is owned by the John E. Searles estate. SoUdtoot.

HUBS nap TO F FOREST SERVICE WILL RE AIDED RY CORPORATIONS Nortlirm Pacific Taks Lead In This Matter Teleplxine Lines Will Bo Strung Right of. Way Will Do Cleared of Inflnninillile Material ScIwoIh for Forest Ranges to He Held Tills Fall. Portland. Efforts are being made by the Forest Service to secure the co operation of the different railway systems in fighting fires which occur In the National reserves through whle In the National reserves through which their ralroads pass. E, T. Allen, dis trict forester, reports that negotia tions along this line have nearly been concluded with the officers of the Northern Pacific. When the Forest Service reaches an understanding with this company by which protection can be furnished the forests, an attempt will be made to arrange the same as sistance from the other railroad com panies. Many of the fires In the forests re serves originate from sparks from the passing locomotives. The plan of the Forest Service Is to have the railroads keep each side of their roadbed clear of Inflammable material and, as a further precaution against accidental fires, provide all engines with suitable spark arresters. The prompt report to officials in the Forest Service, In the district In which the fires are dis covered, and to station agents, Is desired of members of the train crews. It Is proposed also to Intro'duce a Tstem of warning whistles, where feasible, otherwise to convey the ln- tormatlon to the proper officials either by telephone or telegraph. The officials of the Forest Service will ob tain permission from the railroad companies to install a telephone ser vice through- that part of every re serve traversed by the different rail roads., the necessary wires to be sus nemled from the railroad telegraph poles along the right of way. The ex-- pense of Installing such a telephone service 1 to be paid by the railroad company; That employes of the Forest Ser vice mar be enabled better to putnul the forests .bordering on the railroads perlmssfon will be asked of the roll routl companies to Allow all such m ploycs to use speeders over the tracks. In addition to these concessions on Iho part of the railroad company, the. Forest Service officials agree to. patrol the railroad right of way during tho fire season and, with such assMnm: In the way of labor which Is to be r.rnvlded bv the railroad companies. expect to extinguish all fires In their Incipiency at a minium of loss. District Forester Allen also, reports that by arrangement between .tho proper departments at Washington, fh Forests Service assumes charite of all protection from forest fires oc curring on Indian reservations, form erly these fires have been guarded ncnlnst under direction -of various agents of the different reservations. The new system will be placed In op eration this Summer. rne Indian agent of each reservation will super Intend the new plan of fire protection and at all times co-operate with the officials of the Forest Service In the particular district In which the reser vation Is located. To the Forest Service also has been transferred entire charge of the sale of all timber on Indian reservations. The sale of ths material hertofore has been conducted under the direc tion of the reservation agent. The effect of these changes Is to concen trate under direction of the Forest Service all details connected with ad ministration of the forests of the country and their protection.
