IS A CERTAINTY. The Denver Republican says: The copper combine which has been In course of organization for several months is now practically an accom plished fact, and before many months every distinctive copper mine and smel ter In the United States will be includ ed in the combine. This information came in a telegram received yesterday announcing that a bill had passed the Montana Legislature modifying the terms upon which the j property of a stock company could be transferred. Heretofore the low of Montana has been that a transfer of the property of a stock company required the written consent of till tlie stockholders. The combine which has been endeavoring to secure the control of the copper out put of the country had been successful in obtaining the consent of all the cop per mining companies in Montana, but found that the deal could not be carried through on account of the terms of the law. The result was the introduction of a bill in tlie Montana Legislature providing that tin* consent of two-thirds of the stock should be sufficient to ef fect a legal transfer. This Abill was passed just before the adjournment of the Legislature and is now the law of Montana. The combine is now one of the most important in the United States. It in cludes all of the great copper producers of the United States, except the Michi gan mines. The center of copper smelt ing ores is Butte, Montana, and the Butte companies have all agreed to go into the combine. The United Verde mines of Senator Chirk of Montana, lo cated at Jerome, Arizona, will also be included and several other copper prop erties in Arizona are now being nego tiated for with every prospect of suc cess. This will take in all of tin* great copper mines of the country and it is believed that the result will be the maintenance of the price of bar copper at a high figure. • The recent sale of the Colorado com pany of Butte was not included in the combine at the time of the sale, but it is said that the purchasers have agreed to enter tlie combination. The only producing’ mines that have been left out are the great mines of Michigan, and the combination is nego tiating with these companies. An agent of the combine recently vis ited the Grand Encampment district of Wyoming, not for the purchase of prop erty, but to see whether development had progressed far enough to Justify the purchase of the prospects now in operation in that district. The combination will not affect the situation in Colorado, at least at pres ent. Most of the copper produced in this state is in connection with gold and silver, and there is no indication that the combine contemplates engaging in that branch of the business. The re cent discoveries in the Paradox valley of this state have attracted the atten tion of the combine, but nothing has been done toward securing the co-op eration of the owners of property in that section. In the event that great mines should be developed in that sec tion, however, an effort will be made to bring them into the arrangement. Recent arrivals from Butte say that it is an open secret in that section that all of the large mines have entered the combine, and that the companies inter ested are all to increase their capacity, ns the production of copper is still far short of supply. The final arrange ments are to be made within the next three months. THE YAK TUNNEL. Description of Ills Ills: Lridvllle Eater prlae. Two of the most important enter prises for Leadville are two immense drainage and dray tunnels, one of which is slowly but surely piercing the rieli areas of the camp at the present time, while the other is still a matter of conjecture, but Is looked upon in a most favorable light at the present time. The first tunnel Is that being carried ahead by the Yak Mining. Milling and Tunneling Company and is already in a distance of 7.000 feet and at the present time is piercing the rich areas of llrecce hill. The second tunnel is the proposed Malata tunnel, to be run to drain the great Leadville and other basins and for which tunnel Senator Joel \V. Smith of Lake county lias Introduced a Dill that the work be done by the present peuued-up labor of the state penitentiary. The work being conducted by the Yak combination, it cun be safely vouchsafed, the big enterprise which is now pushing Its workings Into the Ituvena ground on Brecce hill, will be more vigorously prosecuted than ever this year. In fact, a special meeting of the stockholders of the company has been called to be held at the offices of the company here on Febru ary -Mb for the purpose of increasing the capital stock of the company to $1,000,000, to be divided into the same number of shares at the value of $1 each uud assessable. Further, for the purpose of carrying on a part of the business of the company in Denver and the establishment in that city of the principal branch office of the com pany. The most Important work of the meeting, however, will Is* the Increase of the stock so that work can be pushed on a more extensive scale as now planned. The Yak tunnel Is the most important project under way in the Leadville district to-day and Its completion means a great deal for the camp and the state at large. At a distance of 7,000 feet the end of the tunnel Is now in tlie eastern portion of the Ravelin claim on Ilreooe IdII. The Idg tunnel starts In the Iron hill territory at thillforuia gulch and lias bored Its way through some of the best mineralized sections of the camp. The original proposition for a great tunnel to pierce Iron and Ilreece hills was first broached by A. A. Blow, an old time Leadville mining engineer now operating Iti the South African gold fields, but at that time, 1880, manager of the Silver Cord combination, be lieving that It would aid the Silver Ford people as a much lower grade of ore could be handled and by the introduction of concentration a much larger output could be maintained Hbadlly. The money was soon forth coming and the work of the Silver Lord tunnel commenced at once and in May. 18W2, It was completed—4,ooo f.»et connecting the inner workings of J the Silver Cord with the outer head ing in California gulch. The company found that Mr. Blow’s predictions were correct and they commenced the suc cessful operations through the Silver Cord’s new tunnel. It was the original intention to push the tunnel at once into Breece hill, thus opening up at a great, depth leading gold belt mines and to use the tunnel not only to carry off the water, but to transport tlie ore as well. Just at this time came 1 the big blow to silver and at the same period the Silver Cord’s big concen : Mating mill was destroyed by lire, so the company dropped further pushing of the tunnel as originally intended. ■ The importance of just such a tunnel was, however, quite plain to mining men interested throughout that terri- I tory and the ground which the big bore was to pierce, and as a result the question was pretty thoroughly dis -1 cussed and the Yak Mining. Milling * and Tunnelling Company was lucor i pointed, taking in all the Silver Cord * combination and having in view the ' continuance of the tunnel into Iron ■ and Breece hills, developing and druin ; ing all properties along its line and | making such arrangements with claim owners as to the mineral discovered as would bo mutually beneficial to all 1 concerned. The work has been pushed ahead steadily since 1895 and at its ; present workings in the Ruvena claim the tunnel Is at depth of about 850 ' , feet. The tunnel is 7x7 in the clear, ‘ grade live inches per 100 feet. The ’ flow of water is not very heavy at the * present time and is easily taken care ‘ of. The company has its big hoisting and air compressing plant erected on tlie Mike and Starr ground, where. ’ when in 100 feet, the company made c« nncetion with the south Mike shaft Mat a depth of 500 feet from the surface. *| Depth is being gained with each foot [ i gained and when tlie tunnel reaches the Forest Queen property on the sum mit of Breece bib*, and which is tin* objective point just now, it will be over 1,800 feet from the surface. ' The Yak people, as they anticipated. have struck a number of good ore > 1 bodies up to tlds time in pushing their * tunnel and are now entering the terri tory which should prove of far greater richness. The officers and directors of the company include a number of " Denver people. The officers are: Presi dent, August It. Meyer: secretary and * treasurer. J. C. Mitchell; manager, J. . 11. Weddle. ' If the Malta-Lendville tunnel is ever built it will be the biggest project ever , carried through in the camp. For the j past eight years rumors were oeea ’ ' sionally heard of the big drainage tun | | liel to be built from Malta to Carbon j ate hill to drain the mines of this , j camp. Time and again tills tunnel has been discussed in mining circles and . some years ago a company was formed _ and work actually started. One can . still see the remains of tlie open cut _ where work was started near Malta, , but for various reasons, probably the t most essential of which was the lack of funds, the big bore has never pushed , ahead. Estimates on the amount re quired to carry through this prospect t ranged from $750,000 to $1,250,000. i Denver Post. A Slr'.ke a \V.»I! **tr*c». . Wall Street camp Is much excited r over a rich strike made a few days ago - in the shaft of the Hillard mine, one of : the properties of tin* Gold Extraction, Mining and Supply Company. The con tractors, who are sinking the shaft, ran into some fine looking ore at the bottom of the same, and Mrs. S. G. Knott, who is in charge of the mining work of the company, being at the mine at the time, had a bucket of the ore hoisted, and . then found tin* vein was literally * streaked with free gold. . Estimates of tlie value range from $lO to sls per pound, or from $20,000 to . SBO,OOO per toll. And the ore itself will , certainly run from $250 to SSOO in gold.

The water line in the Penrose shaft, at Leadville, Is now down below the 500-foot level and there is yet thirty to forty feet to be unwatered’. At present the progress is rather slow, the pumps some days just about holding their own. Yet the progress is satlsfacotry. The Mali continues-to run with a full force, the output keeps up to the top notch, and from all appearances the mine will be run at as full capacity for some time to come yet ns it lias for the past two mouths.

WOLCOTT SEEKS DIVORCE Wlf# of the Senator Charges Incompati bility of Trmper, New York. March o.—Mrs. Edward O. Wolcott, wife of the United States sen ator from Colorado, has begun proceed ings for n divorce from her husband on the ground of incompatibility of tem per. This information, which became known to a few of tlie intimate friends of Senator and Mm Wolcott in this city, caused the greatest surprise here where both have a considerable circle of acquaintances. I was told that the plan was for Mrs. Wolcott quietly to obtain a divorce in Colorado, and that the senator would make no objection to the proceedings. Lawyer Beaman of Evarts, Choate & Beaman, refused to discuss the case. Mrs. Wolcott has been twice married. Her first husband was former Representative Lyman K. Bass of Buffalo, New York, who served two terms In Congress and who was the law partner of Former President Grover Cleveland and Wilson S. Bissell, former postmaster general. Denver, March <>.—A special to the Rocky Mountain News from Washing ton says: Senator Wolcott is now staying at the Arlington hotel and has been there for four days, while Ids wife remains at their handsome residence on Connecti cut avenue, in the immediate neighbor hood of the British and in the heart of the fashionable social set. That Senator and Mrs. Wolcott have agreed to separate is not denied by Hie interested persons, but in view of the high position they occupy in oliicial anil social circles the matter is being kept very quiet with the exception that Mrs. Wolcott will proceed to Colorado and procure a legal soparatlon without any undue publicity being given to their do mestic infelicities. Friends of Senator Wolcott Insist that there is nothing savoring of scandal in the proceedings. A close friend of Sen ator Wolcott told mo that a legal sepa ration would be sought by Mrs. Wolcott simply on the grounds of incompatibili ty of temper. I am also advised from the same source that no other persons are directly or indirectly connected with the affair aud the separation is to be ob tained by mutual agreement. Senator Wolcott will interpose no ob jection. Mrs. Wolcott is acting upon the advice of her brother, Dr. Metcalf, who is now in Washington with her. Senator Woleott, while admitting the separation and forthcoming divorce, de clines to discuss the subject. The news that Senator and Mrs. Wolcott have separated will come as a severe shock to the social circle of which they were conspicuous members. It lias been whispered in their sot that their domestic relations was not the most attractive in the handsome furn ished homo of the Wolcotts, but no one dreamed of legal proceeding looking to a separation. Senator and Mrs. Wolcott have been in society together within the last week or ton days, and on Washington’s birth day, Mrs. Wolcott was one of the most Interested listeners to the rending of Washington’s farewell address by her husband in the Senate chamber. Their home has been the center of many bril liant gatherings since they came to Washington, for Mrs. Wolcott has also a large fortune in her own right and the senator has a large income outside of his salary ns senator.

SIXTY WERE KILLED. AN EXPLOSION NEAR TOULON. O .verment Povvd r Maguslnn Illnw* Up Devastating Country Within Two Mile i. Toulon, March s.—The naval pow der magazine of La Goubran, between La Seyue and Toulon, in the depart ment of Yar, Southern France, explod ed at half past 2 o’clock this morning. All of the soldiers on duty at the magazine were killed and a number of inhabitants of the districts, the build ings of which were razed, also fell victims. Forty corpses have already been re covered. The cause of tlje explosion Is not known. Fifty thousand kilogrammes of black powder exploded. It looks as though a volcanic eruption had occurred, the country being swept almost Imre with in a radius of two miles, bouses de stroyed. trees overturned and distort ed, fields devastated and covered with stones and impalpable black dust. Some of the stones are enormous. One weighing fifty kilogrammes fell iu tlio suburb of Pone I)e Las. Later reports show that the seven sentries, four were killed outright, and the others severely injured, tlie cor poral being literally scalped and the scalp overhanging his face like a veil. A large number of soldiers are now employed In clearing away the debris but the work is difficult. It is impossible to ascertain accur ately the number killed, but it is be lieved that uo fewer than 100 were in jured. Although it was a dear light, tli* explosion was so terrific ns to produce a slight rainfall. Fortunately, the neighboring maga zines escaped. It is now believed that the explosion originated in chemical decomposition in smoki less powder. There is no suggestion of f ill i lay. To-day the whole city is in mourn ing, flags are at half mast, the thea tres are draped and tli:* casinos are closed. Botii the government and municipal authorities are forwarding- relief funds. M.

ONE-ARMED WOMAN. riaya the l.alc of a I'rctty, Clever Vlvacloan Thief. Somerville (N. J.) Special to the New York Sun: Never since old Farmer Pendergast wus gold-bricked out of $5,000 has the Watchung Ridge section been visited by as clever an impostor as recently let herself loose among the hills. She was young and vivacious, with a pretty oval face and dark eyes, topped with a wealth of bleached hair. Her form was slender and graceful, and she walked with a jaunty air. She woro a tailor-made gown, a stylish hat and a fur cape, all of the best ma terial. The most striking thing about her appearance was the absence of her left arm, which was off at the shoul der. One stormy night she knocked at the door of Garret C. Brokaw, a well to-do farmer living on the ridge near ! White House. She gave her name a3 Miss Leona Deminar of New York | City, and said she had got off the cars | at the wrong station and had lost her way. Her destination was Fleming ton, sixteen mile 3 away, and she wanted shelter for the night. The sight of this pretty miss In the storm appealed to Farmer Brokaw, and he gladly gave her shelter. Her manner was that of a woman of culture and refinement. She said she had lost her arm in a wreck on the Philadelphia & Reading railroad, near Trenton Junc tion, and had got a verdict for $25,000 damages against the company, and that the settlement was about to bo made at Flemington by her lawyer, O. P. Chamberlain, of that place, and the j agents of the company. The Brokaw family were charmed , with the stranger, and invited her to j remain at least a week. She protest ingly accepted the invitation. On the day alleged to have been set for the ; settlement of her claim Brokaw, with j his best span of horses, drove the fair ] stranger sixteen miles to Flemington. | She alighted from his carriage in front of the county clerk’s office, where she said she was to meet by appointment her lawyer and the agents. Brokaw saw her enter the building, and drove to Humphrey’s hotel, where he was to take dinner with her an hour later. He waited in vain. Hours later he searched the town for her and inquired at every railroad station, but could get no trace of her. At the office of O. P. Chamberlain he learned that he had been duped, as the lawyer was without knowledge of the fair damsel. Brokaw then whipped his horses into a run and started for home. After taking an inventory of the family cash and val uables he told his wife never to harbor another strange woman, even if she had both arms off. Mrs. Brokaw retort ed that the stranger would never have been harbored at all if Mr. Brokaw had not been so taken with her. Bro kaw’s loss is believed to be heavy, but he refuses to tell about it, as he has recently been laughing at a neighbor who was gold-bricked. Information has been received here recently of the ar rest of a woman giving her name as Miss Giberson and answering the de scription of the swindler at Westches ter, Pa. Sbe is held by Chief of Police Jeffries of that place, charged with stealing Jewelry from people at Bristol and Wilmington, whose confidence she gained through a story about lier lost arm, a railroad wreck and a verdict of $40,000 against the Pennsylvania rail road yet to be collected. The Ascent of Woman. In an article in The Young Woman for February on “The Ascent of Wom an” we are told that whereas the cen sus taken bix years before Queen Vic toria came to the throqe contained no occupations for women except domestic service,there were at the date of the last census 61,C00 women dressmakers 70,000 employed in the public houses 4,500 in printing establishments and 4,721 in mines. Even the postoffice, edged about with red-tnpism as It 13, has nearly 30,000 women as clerks, tel egraphists, sorters, etc., and there arc included in these figures no fewer than 160 head postmistresses und 5,250 sub postmlstresses. Where there was one lady clerk in 1871 there are now four; and —to take two industries only— there are now 121 women per 100 men iu the tobacco industry, as against 42 per 100 in 1871; while In hemp and Jute the women workers have increased from 67 per 100 men to 195 per 100. There are throughout the kingdom nearly 130,000 women engaged in teaching, almost three times the number of men; and 200 women have worked their way Into government de partments as typists. It is significant of the part thut woman now plays in British commercial life that In a re cent year there were 758 women bank rupts. whose aggregate liabilities amounted to £316,000. Preserved as Moses Was. A policeman on duty In Hong-Kong harbor the other day noticed u parcel wrapped in matting tied to one of the buoys. The officer found that a child’s body was inside tho wrapping, and after deliberating whether he should send for the dead box or take It ashore himself he took the latter course. The purccl was stowed away In u coal bas ket, and tho policeman’s surprise can well be Imagined when on opening the matting a live 6-months’-ol(l girl, who howled most lustily, was found Inside.
