[ Corros- pondcnco of TUD llKB.J A number of the prominent cltlzona of Dead wood hnvo or- gnnlzcd n company for tlio purpose of erect- ng n chlorlnnllon plant In Ida Oray district , fit Gordon City. An old twenty-stamp mill , which proved unsuccessful In treating the ere has boon purchased to contain the plant , nnd the nceossary machinery to make the plant complete Is ordered and will bo added as possible. The character of the ere In fts soon this district Is entirely differ ent from that of the Uiilcl Moun tain and Uuby district ? , and it Is believed that thli process will prove suc cessful. Thousands of tons of the ere are un covered luitlio neighborhood , but have never been considered valuable heretofore , except by n few thoroughly acquainted with its nature , owlnjr to the failure of several stamp mills to successfully reduce It. Claims in the vicinity nro now bolnt ? rapidly located , however , and slnco attention has boon drawn to the chlonnntlon process , the inves tigation of tlia ere and securing of claims has been rapid , lllds for the carpenter nnd mason work upon the now plant hnvo been called for nnd considernhlu activity will bo witnessed in the district bcforo IOIIR. Mining matters in the northern 11111s nro almost at a standstill , and operations on nearly all the Uald Mountain and Huby dis trict pronorties have been suspended pend ing seine action toward the erection of now reduction works , to rupluco those recently burned. Humors regarding the construction of now works are varied. It was reported shortly after the burning of the works lust March that the Homcstuko company would erect similar works in lieu of those de stroyed. This report was followed by one to the effect that two syndicates , one composed of Superintendent ! ' . J.Grlor. D. A. McPhor- BOII , Dr. D. K. Dickinson ana several of the main owners of the Homcstuko group of miners , and the' other of the syndicate of Philadelphia capitalists represented by J. K. P. Miller , would combine nnd proceed to rebuild - build tlio works. As yet no sign Is shown of any buch combination having been formed , but the old organization Is now generally expected to bo the promoter of whatever U done toward the rebuilding of the works. Treasurer HIekok , of the old company , re turned to DendwooU on the 6th instant , but oo meeting of the board of directors has been held slnco his arrival , owing to the absence of another director of the company. Mr. Illcltok has announced that ho has secured the promise of $30,000 of eastern capital , pro viding the reuialnderof the necessary amount to build the works can uo obtained in the Hills. It is thought that with the amount of insurance money remaining in the treasury , after the cancelling of all debts of the com pany , and this promised amount of capital , $15,000 will bo suftlclcnt to thorouchly re place the plant. _ .ArUtoerntto IJurslnrs.

It wns n special meeting of the board , nnd was called expressly to indorse Judge Groff for the plnco on the commission made vncnnt by the resignation of Anderson Walker. The attendance nt the meeting was not ns largo ns might hnvo been expected , but there was no explosion of n bomb to arouse the mem bers to their duty. In fact the members who attended were enthusiasts and hard work ers. President Euclid Mnrtln stated the object of the gntherinjT , and Colonel C. S. Chnso Immediately moved that tlio Indorsement of Jndgo Groff , by the board of directors , for thu nppomunont , bo npprovod by the board ns n body , The colonel considered Judge Grolt nn honest nnd upright man. and ho had the couraga to carry oat his convictions. Ho believed that a would bo n fortunate ap pointment for the west. There was not n bettor man for the position In the slate , was thu opinion of the colonel. President Martin , In expressing his opin ion , said that if the board of trade had Judge Croft on the commission ho could bo rolled upon. No ono could control him. Ho wus a man of determination. H , G , Clark did not think there was any question about Judge Graff's Indorsement. Ho believed thu proper influence should be brought about to secure the appointment , by getting nil boards of trade nnd all organiza tions in the state to endorse him. To carry out this ho suggested that the chair appoint n commlttc ? of llvo , including the president and secretary , to get such indorsements. Mr. Chirk also made n motion to hnvo a com mittee of three attorneys appointed for the purpose of securing the indorsement of all judges , including those on the bench of the United States circuit urn' district , sunreme , state nnd district courts. This motion was , of course , unanimously carried.

With the communication was a report of the committee on transportation , to which the mutton haa been referred. Tlio committee reported that there was no likeli hood that the branch roads would bo con structed this season , us represented in the communication , consequently the sec retary was'instructeo : to notify the projectors that the matter would not bo considered. The proposition of the Carthage , ( Dak. . ) roller mill company to put in a plant In this city wus referred to the committee on manu facturers , Apropos of tbo proposed excursion to the Hluck Hills , secretary Nuson stated that thirty-three members bad signillcd tholr in tention of going by putting up the necessary S30 foe. He thought there should bo at least forty members of the board accompany the party , aside from the four news paper reporters.

Ono of the largest nnd most select nudl- diencos that pvor attended a dramatic per formance in Omaha greeted Fanny Daven port and witnessed "La Tosca" at the Grand last night. The vast throng was badly handled. No adequate arrangements had been mado. for admitting it promptly. There was no extra ticket taker , and in cense quence. lines of people anxious to enter ex tended into the street. Some got tired nnd wont away. Others were Into , and so missed tlio opening aud disturbed these already seated. Hetoro 8 o'clock every seat down stairs and up had boon sold , and standing room was In domand. The scene presented to Miss Davenport's eyes when she nrst came upon the stage , not to mention the hearty welcome she rccnlvcd was such ns would in spire mid gratify any star. That she , in turn , fully satisJlod the expectations of every ono , was amply proved by the demon strations frequently repeated Uunng the progress of hpr performance. In some re spects it was probably tlio finest presenta tion of dramatic creation and stugo business that the amusement-loving people of this city have had the pleasure of seeing for many . a day. And they enjoyed it be yond measure. Both in its beginning - ginning and ending the play is rather disappointing , but the third and fourth acts uro powerful enough to more than make up for all defects. At times the acting was so realistic , so Intense , earnest and strong us to rouse the audience to the very highest pitch of enthusiasm. At the end of the third act Miss Davenport had three calls before the curtain , an honor that has nqvor before been extended to tiny nrtlst on an Omaha stuiro. The story of "La Toseii" has bceu told so often in these columns that 'it need not be * re peated , and slnco Miss Davcriport's managers have seen nt to limit her engage ment to one night it is not necessary cither to review her performance in detail. Hun dreds of these who were proacni hnvo seen her in other roles , but , never to such great advantage as In tins oao. The support given her by Mobourn McDowell and F. McCul- lough Hogs , who sustain thu loading nnd only prominent parts wus all that could have been derived. Mr , Hess , ns Marie , the lover , made an extremely favorable impres sion nnd was greatly admired. H Is to ba hoped that next tlmo Miss Davenport will muko her stay longer , The Sn in on n Con Terence. BBHLIN , April 17.

A Itciunrknblo lintllo With Unttlors , In Pcmtaylvniiln , This locality la ttio headquarters of in ere rattlesnakes than cnn bo found In any other spot in northwestern Ponn- sylvnnla , says n Corydon dispatch In the ( tlobc-lomocrat. The o.xnorionco of Henry Martin and his son caps the cli max. Martin and his family wring a- scant subsistence from a roolty farm on the banks of the Allegheny river. Last Friday , while old inun Martin nnd his son ( Jlmrlqs where removing n huge pile ot stones , the collection of a nutn- of years' plotting in the field , they un earthed what seemed to bo a ball of blnclc rope , knotted and curiously Inter laced. The mass was ns largo as n bushel haskot and covered with a light , powdery substance , more rosombllncr bran than anything olso. The sun was shining with much warmth for an April day , nnd , as the ball felt its genial Influence , it began to qulvor. Old Martin yelled "snakes ! " and jumped away. Charley , who wns of a more inquiring turn of mind , pro cured a long polo an 1 stirred up the rap idly yielding mnss. The touch and warmth revived the dormant reptiles , and the surface of the ball wns BCOII studded with rattles that swayed to and fro with a sound resembling the blowing of wind through the dead leaves on a tree. The tails protruded morn and more as the sinikos unlocked tholi-intri- cato coils. They appeared to bo packed with the heads in the center. One of the men tossed n small stone into the writhing' ' mnss to "stir 'em up. " IIo succeeded most olTcctually : the hall of snakes fell apart , disclosing some fifty or sixty rattlesnakes of all sizes , those within covered with whitish slime that Had exuded from their bodies. Thor oughly aroused , the venomous reptiles lashed tholr tails in fury and glided ever each other with surprising agility , their wicked little oyca shining with rage , their mouths wide open nnd forltcU tongues protruding us they hissed dollnntly nt tholr per secutors. One hugo old reptile , nearly six feet In lonmh , glided from the center of the group , and turn ing its Hat , ugly head toward the in truders , opened wide its mouth and swayed to and fro , hissing angrily. An other stone wns thrown , this time of some weight , crushing and maiming many of the reptiles in its fall. The scene wns then simply frightful as de scribed by the men. In their agony the wounded snakes writhed and hissed with redoubled fury , twisting ever and over in blood and slime , while the un injured ones , escaping from the pile , glided towards the Martins with heads upraised and rattling qminously , The air was filled with the peculiar musky odor exhaled by the rattlesnake when alarmed or angered , so much affecting the two men that they foil a deathly sickness. It is said the venom of the rattlesnake is especially deadly at this season. The situation looked decidedly unpleasant and the two men armed themselves with stout clubs and began killing snakes. The largest sported so von teen rattles , which old man Mur- tin cut oft and took homo with him to convince disbelievers. Fifty-six snakes were laid low. Never in the opidian records of Corydon had there been such a capture. Killoil by Haunt ; CUmly. David Ellis , the four-year-old son of Joseph Ellis , a cigar dealer of Water street.

I regret , though I am not surprised to hear , that very serious rumors are allout at Uorliii about the health of the Gorman chancellor , says a writer in London Life.
