The Anaconda Copper mine which had decided to close down on account of labor troubles has resumed work again as the follow ing press despatch explains: Butte, Mont,, Nov. 22. Special. This afternoon the 500 smelter men of the Anaconda Copper Co. accepted the reduction of 15 per cent and went to work. Their new concentrator will be started up soon, which will add forty tons of copper per day to their production. The men had been receiving 3.00 per day and the reduction is the result of a compromise be tween the manager of the" Ana conda and the Knights of Labor. The Fate of The Apaehee, A correspondent of the Chicago Tribnne writing from Washington has the following to S3y in regard to the Apaches sent to Florida: "The fate of the Indians captur ed in the Miles campaign is practi cally settled. It was not decided when they were first sent East whether any of them would be tried for crimes or not. The Presi dent has examined the case very carefuhy and has come to the con elusion that life confinement for all of these Indians in Florida, where tney can do no harm, will be the most thorough punishment which can be visited on them. It would be a travesty on justice to have these Indians tried in Ari J X- mi jt.uu Biiu iew aiexico. mere is not a whiio man in either one of those Territories who could sit in a cr.se involving the rights of an Indian with any kind of fairness. The conviction of the criminals would leave their families un touched. These families would train np children to revenge the deaths of those who were punish ed, and the result would be a con tinuation of the lawlesness which for years has made life and prop erty so insecure in the two Terri tories. As a matter of fact the 500 In dians transferred to Florida have leen sentenced to a lingering death. They have been brought tip in the mountain countries, ac customed to freedom in the pure, cold air of high altitudes. Their transfer to and confinement in the warm climate of Florida will sim ply result in their dying off like so many shSp. Experienced army offtV-ers do not think that there will bo one of them a'irr at the c-eJ of the rest five years." Pomeroy; Recorder P. Michelo- na; Assessor . D. Johnson; Coroner J. H.
