LiUD Cirr , Dak. , April 10. [ 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. _
BISMAIICK , Dak. , April 17. [ Special Tele

cgrnm to TUB URI : . ] Sunday's Now York
Times , which reached here to-day , contained
n vicious nttnck on Governor Francis E.
Warren. It appears ns correspondence from
Choycnno , but is unsigned. The article
claims that President Harrison has made n
grave mistake in tha appointment of Warren ,
who Is notoriously unfit for the position ; that
ho Is n cattle baron and monopolist of the
deepest dye , nlhulos to his connection while
governor with the suppression of the Chincao
riots in Uock Springs , incidentally dresses
down the Stock association nnd laudt ox-
Governor Moonlight to the blue vault of
heaven. The fact that Governor Warren Is
ninply fitted to fill the onlco of governor. Is
shown by his Indorsement to President Hnr- ,
risen , which Is the strongest ever given n
territorial candidate. The article has created
n very gront deal of indignation here because
of its vicious misrepresentation of facts and
its anonymous character.

good service docs not demand the retention
of postmasters , save in exceptional cases , be

vice , it is said , will bo the first consideration ,
there is reason to bcliovo that the commis

President Martin , In expressing his opin

Croft on the commission ho could bo rolled

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

out this ho suggested that the chair appoint

and secretary , to get such indorsements. Mr.

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 ,

KILLED FIFTY-SIX SNAKES.
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

to hear , that very serious rumors are

ho is not likely to recover ; others de
clare that his mind is net as clear as it

opinion expressed in different quarters
on the subject , every ono seems to agree
that Prince Bismarck is very ill , and
unable to transact public business.
