Prof. James Warren is announ
cea as me inventor of a new pro
cess of reducing ores by tho aid of
electricity. While examining a
piece of gold-bearing quartz, the
Professor accidentally let it fall
into one of the dynamos, which
was in motion at the time. On
looking for the piece of quartz the
next day, he found it in the dyrno,
and to his surprise the gold in the
quartz had been melted and had
run to one side of the rock, forming
a beautiful button. He imme
diately instituted a series of experi
ments, and succeeded in evolving
a process by which gold, silver and
copper can be instantly 6melted
from concentrations by a powerful
electric shock, almost equalling in
intensity a stroke of lightning,
The successful application of this
process to other ores, as lead and
antimony, is also expected.
Jr'onr Times Sentenced to Death,
A special correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune, writing from
Salt Lake City, says: Five years
ago last July John E. Turner,
young man just starting out in
life for himself, was murdered in
camp at Park City, and his two
teams taken by Fred Hopt, alias
Welcome, and one Emerson, driv
en into Wyoming, and sold. They
covered the body of Turner with
T . . . ...
sacEs 01 grain in one 01 tne wag
ons, and hauled it to a spot thirty
miles from the scene of the mur
der, where they hid it, and where
it was found ten days afterwards.
Hopt was arrested in Chyenne, 500
miles from where the murder was
committed. He resisted arrest.
while Emerson sent for the officers
to come and get him at Carbon,
Wyoming. Emerson was tried
first and sentenced to the peniten
tiary for life. Hopt asked for n
continuance of his case, but this
was denied. He was tried and
sentenced to be shot, but secured
a new trial through an appeal to
the Supreme Court of the United
States, on the ground of error in
not being granted a continuance
when entitled to it This appeal
took one year to reach a decision,
after which he was tried, con
demned to be hanged, and again
secured a new trial on technical
grounds. The third trial resulted
in a conviction and sentence to be
shot. His attorneys asked for a
new trial. In June, 1884, within a
half an hour of the time limited
for his execution, the acting Gov
ernor came to his rescue, amidst
an excited populace, and granted a
stay of execution pending an ap
peal. It took one year to reach a
decision by the Supreme Court,
which granted a new trial. This
transpired two weeks ago, ard last
week he was sentenced to death
tne iourjn time, the prisoner
choosing to be shot as the prefer
able mode of execution. Again
have his attorneys applied for a
new trial. Their appeal goes first
to the bupreme Court of the Ter
ritory, which meets in January,
and then it can be carried to the
Supreme Court of the United
States, as has thrice been done
already. A remarkable feature in
this case is the fret that the man
has no money or friends who have
money to spend in his behalf. He
has had attorneys assigned to his
defense by the Court who have had
no pay for their services, and who
have been compelled to advance
fees out of their own pockets; and
yet, through technicalities, and
taking advantage of the laws of
appeal applicable to Utah, they
have already kept their client from
execution for five years, and it will
probably take another year to end
the case, unless the populace ex
ecute vengeance, as they have at-
tempted to do several times during
Justice or the Peace, ties for Executing every variety of

Itattliuc W ith a Bear.
The Monticello (N. Y.) Dispatch
says: Jerry Miller, a well known
guide and hunter of Bethel, Sulli
van county, while acting as guide
for a party of Ulster county sports
men recently, had a life and death
fight with a large bear which he
camo upon while chasing a deer.
He shot at the bear with his rifle,
but failed to hit a vital part. Then
followed a hand-to-hand encoun
ter, the recital of which bv Miller
sounds like a chapter from a dime
novel. The plucky guido, after
his rifle was of no use to him, suc
ceeded in picking up a big club,
which he broke over bruin's head
with no appreciable effect Tho
bear grappled him and began to
squeeze him. In the affray Mil
ler's clothes were nearly torn from
his body, and he was scratched
and bleeding from head to foot.
After a terrible struggle Miller
loosened one of his arms, and,
grasping a large knife he had with
him, he plunged it into the bear's
breast Just at that moment the
hunting party arrivod, and they
finished what little life the bear
had left Miller fainted and had
to be carried home. He has

Americans abroad are accused of
spoiling every place they go to by
their lavish expenditure and reck
less indifference to prices, provided
they secure exactly the house, the
horse, the picture or the bit of
bric-a brae that they have set their
hearts upon. Precisely the same
thing is said now in Washington
of New Yorkers. The national
capital a few years ago was in j
every respect a very reasonable
place. Rents were low, provisions
moderate, wages, in comparison
with those in Northern cities, al
most nothing, and clothes not to
be calculated at all, inasmuch as
they could not be bought there,

The ordinary American, Bays
the London Globe, drinks his
liquor at a gulp, travels quickly,
thinks quickly, and likea to read
his newspaper quickly, and to
grasp in an augenblick (as the
Germans would say) what is going
on all over the world. The jour
nalist supplies him in consequence
with cleverly-constructed head'
lines, so worded that a glance at
them tells the contents of the ar
ticle which follows, and enables
him to decide whether or not it
contains matter which will interest
him. On all the large newspapers
in the United States a man is es
pecially engaged to write these
headlines, and some of them are
marvels of skillful epitomizing.
For a people who demand such t
brief yet complete ; epitome of
events, it were worse than useless
in an editor to publish full details.
It is therefore impressed upon ev
ery newspaper writer that he shall
aim at consciseness on every occa
sion. It is hardly nossibln that'
there can be any speech, address,
lecture, or sermon worthy of re
porting at length; it is impossible
that any trial, examination, nr
meeting can be worthy of a report
in extenso. "You have so . much
space," says the editor to the re
porter; "say all you can in that"
And even after this injunction the
editor will generally find use for
;ui m .
ma uiuo peuuu. .
Every member of the staff of an
American newspaper is expected
to keep his eyes and ears wide,
open. He must be oh the alert to
catch and remember all that is go
ing on around him, a veritable
4icker-up of unconsidered trifles.
On this account there is always a
iendly rivalry in existence be
tween the stafis of all the news-
ptipeia iu a cicy. Jhacn man is
ever trying to obtain a piece of
news for his paper that no other
paper will have on the following
morning, and hence the brightness
and originality of American news
papers, though it is also from this
cause that too often their news'ia
untrustworthy. But there, again,
the American receptive faculties
are constituted diflerently from
the English. What is read in the
newspapers in the United States
ia always taken cum grano salis, -and
the true American will sooner
ny rar read a racily-written article,
be it ever so short, and not alto
gether correct in details, than he -will
sit and peruse a lengthy
though absolutely correct account
of the most important event of the
day. Of this fact the journalist
is fully aware; he therefore pre
pares an olla-podrida of para
graphs, chippings, telegrams, short
editorials, personal chats, special
articles, and satirical (sometimes
scurrilous) critiques on everything
and everybody. .
"The Sneak Pack."
Shoplifters have been active da
ring the present busy season in
the retail stores, though their work
was singularly hard to detect It
was only in the losses of valuable
goods that the merchants became
aware of what was going on.
Thieving by professionals had for
several years been all but abol
ished through the employment of
spies and the merciless prosecution
of culprits; but this fall's trade
had no sooner set in than the rob
beries began. The explanation
has been found in a curions parcel
seized in the possession of a noted
thief called "Molly Bawn." It
looked like an ordinary bundle.
about a foot long by four inches
thick, and was covered by brown
paper, tied with twine, and printed
with the card of a leading store,
so that it had exactly the aspect of
a shopper's casual purchase. But
it was a cleverly-devised imple
ment. One end was a flap, across
which the seeming string was a
stiff wire, on which the movable
section turned as on a pivot, mak
ing an opening into the hollow in
terior. The operator would lay it
on the counter, amidst some small
and costly articles at which she
pretended to be looking with a
view to purchase, and then, at an
opportune moment, she would sly
ly open the end, slide in a piece
of lace, jewelry, or other small ob
ject and smoothly get away. A
quiet hunt is being made for the
manufacturer of the "sneak pack,"
as the ingenious thing is calied-
The belief is that it is the inven
tion of receiver of stolen goods,
who lends duplicates to women
and girls on condition that the
proceeds of its use be shared.
Merchants are thought to have
suffered very heavy losses. New
