Tlio Cnrccr of Johnny Skuo niul 111
Tlirco Mllllona < V Typical Mush
room Millionaire.
John Skftc , a prominent mining opoon-
Inter , who accumulated Immense wealtl
in the Uomttock mlnos and after/ware
lost It , died In Ssn Franclaco on the 17th
Mr. Skao was three times n mlllloualro
and is bollovcd to have died penniless
though upon this latter point dllfaron
views are entertained.
The history of Mr. Skno'a olovatlon to
the dignity of a millionaire , and hi
rapid return to the humility of n poor
mati would cxcito the deepest wonder In
n community where the wheel of fortune
revolves moro alowly than la agreeable to
the adventurous California ! ! . Mr. Skao
was barn In Canada. One of his parents
being Scotch and the other Irish , it 1
rather difficult to classify him nationally
It Is an established fact , however , that
like the mjprity of men who have ac
quired great wealth on the PaolGo coast
ho started In the race for fame from an
humble position. Ho was a telegraph
operator of uncommon ability , which
was utilized In the business of transmit
ting between the Oomstcck and the Sar
Francisco stock market. The grea
lode was almost bursting with
the promise of untold millions
and the whole coast was In the threes o
a malignant mining fever. The wires
wcro burdened with the history of the
lode from day to day , and there was no
ono who rend the story with moro Inter
cat than Johnny Skae , the telegraph op
orator. It lives In the history of the Com
stock and the anecdotes of the tolegrapl
offices that the llttlo Canadian operator
not only road the secret dispatches , but
unllko the majority of his craftpossessoc
the business tact to make capital of his
knowledge. Tbo information thrust be
fore him day by day made him master o
the situation as far as his capital conli
extend , and ho continued to expand the
limits of his operations until the telegraph
graph oflico know him no moro.
The easy pico of a prudent bondholder
was not to the liking of Mr. Skao , however -
ever , and ho embraced all the opportunl
ties that the stock market olTerod for ox
cltomont until the fame of the big bonan
? \ sot half tiso country at its wit's end
Johnny Skao had but a small amount o
stock when It commancad to climb the
scale of pricas , bat ho dashed at the
market , and , with astounding reckless
noas , followed the accurltlon unti
Consolidated Virginia was close
to the ono thousand della
limit and California mining stock was seat
at an equally exorbitant sum , When th
'deal" ended and the tidal wava of ox-
cltemont had receded , loivlng the mark
ct strewn with the wrecks , Johnny Skao
was $3,000,000 ahead. Ono by ono th
crop of millionaires was gathered Into
the Nevada bank and lost to the outsid
and no longer endearing world. Wit !
the others wont Johnny Skao , so repot
said , and the public mind , having satisfied
fiod itself that the ox-telegrapher was n
longer a millionaire , expunged him fron
Its most sensitive spot.
Those who watched the stock marko
aud tbo figures revolving around It know
that Johnny Skae was still Interested It

eye to detect his presence. Ills reckles
system of "doubling up" until hla "mar
gins" were too thin to support his a
castles had made a sad Inroad on h

hang his hopes on a few speculative pro
perttos. In this uninviting category wa

Indeed. Tbo stock was down to bedrock
but even at tint state Mr. Skao did no
want It. The market suomed dead. A
sudden dcalro for travel possessed th
mining men. Mr. Skao , obeying th
popular Impnleo , went east. Ho had no
reached his destination , when the ontlr
aspect of affairs on the Comstock and on
the San Frsnclsco stock market wa
chanced * by a few dlspalchca. One o
theseinformed Mr. Skao that there wor

inatlon of the mine convinced him that
great bonanzt was In protpect , and , wit
all his characteristic rockloasnoes , ho
dashed Into the market. Ho had enl
3,000 shares of Sierra Nevada and not
great deal of his $3,000,000 clcan-up on
Consolidated Virginia.
All that ho lad , however , wont to hi
brokers , and the dubstantlal firm on Pin
street which ho patronized was orderec
to "doublo up.1 The firm donblod fo
the bold npecnUtor , and ho bought on
his broker'd money until tha stock stoo-i
at § 273 a eharo. The same tactics and
tbo same firm hand stood him In gooi
stead In the Consolidated Virginia and
California oxcltouiont , and seemed to bo

rhcro a millionaire who docs not live up

it for no nobler purpose than to label

n the atcck market are too recent to
need B description. When the echoes of

'father ot the now bonanzj , " the ptlnco-

who was brought before the court KB a fit
subject for the reform achool. The o\l-
donco showed a deplorable ctato of
morals for so yonng a girl , she being evi
dently ruined in every respect. Her
father lives In Cass county , and from the
girl's ' statement and that of her elster , It
appeared that her homo was not ono of
the happiest or best. She claims that her
father beat her so cruelly with a hickory
club that she still bore the marks , and
that aho could not stay at home , and
would prefer herself to bo sent to the re
form school than to bo compelled to go
homo. It was decided to soud her to the
reform school.

It was put up during tbo night in all parts

Wo recommend public meetings to beheld

the speediest and most cil'ectivo moans of

God and guarding them against Inroads

ity by an inconsiderable number uf the
female attendants of oar various churches ,
whom , through Ignorance or perhaps
worse , dare to outer the houao of prayer
in eeml-nudo nr transparent garb , which
would ba moro in harmony with the vo
taries of the Comiqno or the shrlno of
