From ttm to time of late there have
been Items of nfw In the Rngllah papers
describing conflicts ltwren the Brttleh de
tachments holding the posts along the new
frontier taken tip by the British govern
ment In 'he Adn hinterland and the Yemen
Arabs. In on of the latent encounter re
ported the British suffered not a 111 tie In
the way of oas.-altles and a, village vn d
troed. The disturbance created by this
extension of BrltUh territory over the south
western corner of Arabia, seems to be
spreading. It has apparently reached the
country to the south of Mecca, where there
tine been some sanguinary fighting between
the rebelling tribes of the Aelr. region and
the Turks. In which the latter were badly
beaten. From Central Arabia and the
country toward the Pertlan gulf there are
also reports of renewed unrest which may
probably lead to Intervention. It la not
likely that anything will b dona until after
)rd Curson'a tour to the Persian gulf,
which he will make about the end of the
year In. his official capacity of governor
general of India. During the tour he will
visit all the points of Interest, Including
Kowelt, which has been spoken of as the
terminus of the German Bagdad railway.
With the Kowelt chiefs Great Britain has
political relations. It will not be surpris
ing If Lord Curson's projected journey Is
made the occasion of a deliberate and em
phatic aisertlon of British sovereignty over
lares part of that region.
A correspondent of one of the London
newspapers, writing from Odessa, saya that
the latest Information from Teheran rep
resents the state of affairs in the Persian
capital as becoming daily mora precarious,
ralace Intrigues are so rampant that no
minister or prominent courtier caif depend
from day to day upon the shah's good will
and favor, and the fall of a minister or
court favorite In Persia usually means his
official and social degradation, . the loss of
bis private property and banishment to
Kcrbela or some other remote and undesir
able spot. For the time being the new aad
raaaam (grand vizier), Aln-ed DouleH, Is
all-powerful. Ha Is a cousin of the shah
and was formerly governor of Masenderan,
a post from which he was suddenly de
graded and exiled to Kernels. He Is re
puted to be a fanatically orthodox Shllte
and this la a causa of no little anxiety to
the Babists, a sect wblch has latterly been
very cruelly presecuted In various parts of
the shah's dominions. Ha is regarded as by
no means so enlightened a statesman as
his predecesror, the Atabeg-Asam, but, un
like the latter, who Is now an txHe in west
orn Europe, he is said to regard Russia
with dislike and suspicion. All this Infor
mation, It ahould be remembered, Is sifted
through Russian sources.
The conference of representatives of the
different Oerman states which Is sitting
In Berlin to consider the financial condi
tion of the empire, has some knotty prob
lems to solve. One object, if not the main
object of It, Is to devise measures to pre
vent any further Increase in the contribu
tions of the Individual states to the Im
perial treasury. In the financial program
vi-icneu uy rnncs xsipmarca in un u wb
calculated that the revenue which the im
perial treasury would derive from customs
and excise duties would enable It to bal
ance the amount of the "matrlcular" con
tributions and create a surplus fund to be
divided annually between the contributory
states. In recent years there has not only
been no. surplus, but tha separate states
have had to pay In considerably mora
than they received back. In the ' current
financial year April 1, 1903, to March 81.
1904 not only ha a supplementary loan
been needed to balance tha estimates, but
It has also been found necessary to assess
the separate states for sums which amount
in all to 24,000,000 marks (JC.ooo.oco), over
and- beyond the contributions for which
they are indemnified. The finances of
' Prussia fortunately are in such a prosper
ous condition that the share of this bur
den which falls upon tha greatest Oerman
state has not been seriously felt. But the
modest budgets of some oft the smaller
members of tha Imperial federation are
less able to bear the atraln of extra de
mands which cannot be calculated In ad
vance. It la declared that the present sys
tem must soon result In tha rutn of several
of them.
. te
A Russian decree has Just been Issued
dealing with the cases of foreigners ex
pelled from Russian territory. The most
important of the new regulations provides
that "foreigners condemned to penal servi
tude or exile are not liable to expulsion,
but foreigners condemned to other forms
of deprivation of freedom are liable to ex
pulsion upon tha expiration of their sen
tence." ' Foreigners liable to expulsion are
to be presented with an Intimation to that
effect specifying a term of grace to be ac
corded to them. If any foreigner doea not
leave tha country voluntarily after re
ceiving this Intimation, he is to be sent to
the border under escort, as will be any
foreigner who, after having been expelled,
shall return to Russia. Further provisions
deal with the cases of foreigners compelled
to return to Russia by the refusal of their
governments to receive them, and the ad
ditional raxes of foreigners who twice re
turn to Russia after expulsion. The latter
class have been tteated hitherto as vaga
bonds. For both clauses a special system
of settlement has now been Instituted, by
which they will be permitted to live In cer
tain districts to be defined at Intervals of
three years. They must register them
selves In the peasant or artisan class, will
not be allowed to leave the district to
which they have been allotted, or to en
gage In trade or Industry without the con
sent of the governor. In five years from
the time of their settlement they may be
come naturalised.
A correHpondent of the London Times has
been traveling among the repatriated
Boers In the Transvaal, and trying to dis
cover the true atate of their feelings to
wards Great Britain. He says that he be
lieves that most of them are friendly and
grateful for what has been done for them,
but that they feel considerable anxiety
about the future. . The great majority Of
them are In the government's debt; and it
Is the doubt as to how far their share
of the free gift of 3.000,000 will get them
out of debt which weighs upon their minds.
The correspondent thinks that the hardest
task Is Still In front, namely, the collection
of debts, ths just assessment of claims,
and, above all, the fulfillment of promises
made. It Is the manner In which this work
Is carried out, he ssys, whio i will determine
the attitude to be adopted by the greater
proportion of the Boer population. There
must be tha most scrupulous fairness and
the utmost tact, he declares, and no prom
ise must remain unfulfilled. The Boers do
not accept the new orrVr of things without
considerable misgiving, und the hurt -to
their natlonat pride cannot be quickly
healed; but he believes that for the most
part they have confidence In their new gov
ernment, and will be content so long as
they are fairly treated. But, he adds, there
are a considerable number of temporary ir
reconcllables who may be expected to muke
trouble as soon as government benefactions
have been exhausted. Moreover, there are
a body of permanent Irreconcllables, who
still dream of a Bouth African republic and
are already busily sowing the seeds of dis
content, among the more peaceable Inhabitants,

Frits August Heinle, one of the Impellins
causes of the shutdown ot mines In Butts
and vicinity, is a native of Brooklyn, N. Y.,

When Helnze went to Butte thirteen years
ago the city was a mining oamp where
there were some ot the richest veins of
copper In the country. Ho took his $5 a day
Job and went down In the mines every
morning at 7 and stayed until In ths
evenlna. When ' he ram nut he rirnnr,,!
the toggery of the mine, cleaned un and mit
on evening clothes. He wss the only man
in me camp who appeared at dinner In a
claw-hammer coat, and waa soon locally
celebrated for this sort of thing. On Bun
days he wore a frock coat and a top hat
ana was soon pointed out as the "best
dresser" of the camp.
He had a smattering of engineering
knowledge and ho worked faithfully In the
mines for two years. Irt that time ha
learned much about copper. He mastered
the smelting business and his shrewd mind
saw the opportunities that gave him his
start toward fortune. With his knowledge
and his plans he returned to New York,
wnere ne had two brothers. Otto and Ar
thur. Helnze had soma mnnrv nf
his own besides his salary when he was -In
Montana. Boon after he returned his grand.
mother died, leaving 130.000 ai,t,r to each
of the three brothers. This was the money
Helnze needed. He went to Germany and
studied for two years In the best schools
of mlneraloaty. Ha rounded there, tha
knowledge he ad guined In the west and
wnen ne came back to New York he waa
prepared to carry out tha Diana he had
maae in tsutte.
He asked his brothers to ao to Montana
with him.' Arthur, who Is a lawyer, de
cided to go. Otto, who was In busine-s
at that time, refused. The two, brothers
established themselves In Butte. The need
for the lawyer brother Waa xnnn nnnnrpnl
for Helnze was In litigation up to his neck
within a year. He leased the Entrella claim
irom James A. Murray and built a small
smelter with his capital. The contract with
Murray provided that Helnss should pay
a 25 pr cent royalty on all ore running
over 13 per cent copper to tha ton. Mur
ray claimed that much of the ore from the
Estrella ran more than It per cent, but
that Helnze evaded the nftvment nf rnvnl
ties by mixing enough low-grade ore and
roctt with the ore produced from the mine
to keep the oercentaae of ennner nein
12. They went to the courts. Helnse then
proved that the courts were his battle
grounds. He fought Murray for months
and he won.
With the money ha waa maklmr frnr. tha
Estrella Helnza took nver aavaral nthar

It wsa not long until he had bought a con
trolling interest In the P.arus mine, a large
producer he had under lenaa. Tie naM trx -

Heart or the copper district. Heinse wcrs
recognized by this time as one of the
shrewdest rjlnlna- men in Rntta ant ha
proved the correctness of the claim by get
ting me diengarry claim and developing It
In connection with the Rarus mine. Ha ha

ha had the energy to utilize his knowledge

a man who would right for his claims and
would not compromise unless be Jiad by far
the best of It. In 1895 ha turned tn'Rriti.h

a smelter. Then he built a natrow-gauge
railroad to Rossland. eighteen miles Inland
The heaviest producer In tha region was the
L.eroy mine, which waa owned In Spokane,

When Helnze returned to Rnit.' i .v.
lntter part cf 1897, he was dragged into the
eensational litigation that Is now in process
of adjudication. There are few people who
understand the Intricacies of mining law,
and the suits and counter-suits brought by
Heinse and against Helnse, were bewilder
ing In their complications. The Butte ' A
Boston mine sued Helnzo for 1150,000 for ore
alleged to have been taken from the
Mlohael Davttt mine through the deeper
workings of tha Rarus. a Heinse mine.
Then tbe Boston A Montana company
sued for $500,000 on a similar claim, for ore
taken by the Rarus workings from the
Pennsylvania mine. Helnze Jumped In at
this point and sued for $2,000,000 for ore
taken from tha Rarus claim by ths work
ings of the Mountain View mine. The com
panies which sued Heinzs were the Marcus
Daly Interests, and the fight between Cop.
per King Daly and tha Helnzes began right
Action was plied on action, on every sort
of a pretext, until there were more than
aixty cases In the varloua courts of the
county, atata and country. These suits
ware but ths beginning. Helnze had not
been Idle when he discovered the Daly
people were after him. Ha had Instructed
his brother. Arthur, the lawyer, to Invest!
gate the mining titles on the Butte moun
tain. Arthur had Investigated with good
reaults-for Helnzo. It was found that the
titles, the records of them and of the
claims ware In hopeless confusion. Lawyer
Heinse discovered that tha richest of the
Boston Montana company's properties,
tha Comanche, had an imperfect title. This
mine had been merged from two claims,
the Comanche and the Dayton. It was
supposed tha Dayton claim had been
bought by tha Boston and Montana peo
ple. Patrick Largey had deeded a two
thirds interest In the Dayton to tha Co
manche, but tha astute Helnse discovered
that Largey had owned but one-third by
the record, and that the Utle of tha other
third was vested la anotuer man. Helnze
Immediately took legal proceeding, con

Exchange. 1
The welter of a field day of tha exchange
has been likened to that of Paul's flght with
beasts at Ephesus. But the apostle's best
claim lay In his endurance of a more con
tinuous test. Veterans of the civil war, who
during years of service never knew what a
day might bring forth, have confessed that
In their worst battles and most toilsome
marches they did not undergo ths physical
and mental strain, the "I die dally" of the
ever-renewed campaign upon the floor. Yet

Terrors in his few entrances he has at

triumph, fear, have been quelled by his quos

Impress him nothing more so than a sud

the memory were tha three within a single
decade, upon each of which a well known
member of ths board died In the exchange,
two of them In the very center of Its stage.
An Impression that Instantaneous deaths
are more likely to occur here than else
where Is not confirmed by the record. As a
class the brokers, after long service, carry
no more marks of nervous strain than other
active buxlness or professional men. It
may be that some, whose constitutions are
poorly adapted to the work. And It prudent
to withdraw at the first symptom of or
ganic deterioration. An expert - actuary
might tell us how many among 600 men who
move and deal together, under the special
conditions, for a score of years, ought to
die In their tracks. That three should have !
done so within memory of the street, and '
all in a single decsde, does not imply a '
large percentage, even when allowance Is
made for continual recruiting. Bo when ths

of financial alarms, the room was crowded,
gloom arjd excitement had prevailed. Sud
denly the midmost group divided, and faen
began that strange hush widening like a
mist to every side. Trading ceased, though
few at first knew why or how. And there
a man lay In his last tremor, with one cr
two comrades ministering, and others brac
ing themselves back to give him air. Then
a stretcher, borne by two men, entered from
some here, while the entire assemblage
formed a circle extending to the boundaries
of tha room. Bo dial at once a colleague
before ths eyes of all. Tbe . silence, ths
baring of heads, the lifting of the dead, the
solemn, sturdy march of his carriers to ths
ell. were like nothlug so much as a scene
oil the stuge of some great theater, in some
historic play. It was followed immediately
by that action taken only upon imperative
occasions tha temporary adjournment ot
tha board and ths floor was silent for an
hour. When lis functions were renewed.
the day's financial malaise bad In some way
been allayed, as if, appeased by a human
sacrifloe, the adverse arbiters had for the
moment ceased their spleen. A4d so the
old life went on for days and months and
years, and no trap-door again opened be
neath one of these wayfarers upon the
bridge of sUrxa, until tha seventh year
cam round. Then precisely the sams scene
was again enacted. Another ota-tlme mem
ber, also dealing near the center of the
room, waa mil ten, sank down, and died
Immediately In tha sight of all. Again the
hush, the awed circle, the stretcher, ths
removal, tbe adjournment. Bines then ths
