his friends in Rock Island and has
visited with all of them and talked
over old times. It was In the year
1866 that Mr. Schlegel left here for
the west. Since then he has resided

Many are the changes which he sees

all different from those which were In
use in his day. The residence district
has received his aitenion too. When

Paris, Aug. 9. John W. Gates
died in this city at 5:10 o'clock thla
morning. He had been desperately
ill for the past few weeks here. Des
perate efforts to save his life by the
use of oxygen and digitalis failed and
the end came peacefully. He was
brave and smiling when death came.
Death was caused by a complica
tion of diseases, congestion of the
kidneys being the speciflc reason as
signed by the physicians. His son,
Charles G. Gates, was at the bedside
when his father passed away.
The death of Gates called forth many
expressions of regret, not only from
direct acquaintances, but from num
bPrless Parisians who knew him as a
bold, successful business man. VMrs.
Gates and son Charles were much
worn by the long period of anxiety ami
nursing. As soon as word of Gates'
death was cabled to America, mes
sages of condolence commenced to ar
rive from friends and business asso
ciates. President Black of the United
States Realty & improvement com
pany of New York made arrange
ments for the disposition of the body,
which will be taken to the United
States. Funeral services will be held

sippi and up the Hennepin canal to tho
Fiebig camp on Big Island, the paxty

splendid time was enjoyed, the trip
back to this city being made by moon
light. Those in the party in addition
to the host and hostess were tbe .Mes
dames Arnold, Hoppe, Rhude, Dri.?gs,
Yerbury and Skinner and Miss StocUer.

of Gates ought not affect the stock
market, because the financier had not
operated extensively of late, but was
conservatively placing his fortune
largely In substantial securities. Those
here who were near Gates estimate
his estate will be found nearer 40 mil

The death of John Wayne Gates
removes one of the boldest and most
successful American financiers and
a picturesque figure on the field of
sports. Since IS 80, when he organ
ized the Southern Wire company,
Mr. Gates had been a man with
whom it was necessary to reckon In
the particular industrial affairs to
which he had given his attention. In
recent years he found relaxation
from business cares in becoming a
prominent patron of the American
turf. Mr. Gates began his business
career as proprietor of a hardware

Chicago, Aug. 9. Reports of a
threatened strike of shopmen on all
western railroads have been circu
lated for several days but investiga
tion shows that there Is no immed
iate cause for apprehension. Vice
President JuHub Kxuttschnltt of the
Union Pacific believes the railroads
are facing a serious situation. The
labor officials, however, those who
are behind the movement for new
working conditions for the shopmen,
say that the wage question is not as
Important as uniform working rules
governing conditions of employment.
These rules, they state, are to gov
ern five classes of shopmen machin
ists, sheet metal workers, boiler-
makers, blacksmiths and car work
ers. W. F. Kramer, secretary of the
International Brotherhood of Black
smiths, said that reports of a big
strike were unfounded. CO. Gib
son, International secretary of the
car workers, said that he had not
heard of any threats of strikes. A
committee representing the mechan
ical employes of the Rock Island has
been conferring with the manage
ment for several weeks, although the
situation has not yet come to a head,
and a similar committee on tho Illi
nois Central has asked for a contract
in piare of the contracts with the
seperate oganizat'ons. The demands
are for Increase In pay ranging from
25 to 35 per cent, according to local
conditions, as In some places the

PRODUCES "HUMAN" HAIR.

F. O. Landrnm of the Nences can

Just produced In one clip mohair
twenty-eight inches long, which sold
for a little over $0 per pound and
bronght a total of $115. This mohair,
it is said, will be used by the makers
of hair goods to produce beautiful
switches of real "human" hair.
This highest grade of mohair Is very
fine and silky and has a beautiful nat
ural wave. While theoretically the
idea of tbe hair of a goat being used
to adorn women is repulsive, practi
cally when the mohair is treated and
dyed an expert couid not distinguish
it from the real article.
