warehouse companies brought suit to se
cure an Interpretation of a clause In the McKinley -
Kinloy bill under which rolmported whisky Is

SALT lane CITV , Utah , April 5. [ Special
to TIM : BF.11 Tbo vlsltorj to the Columbian
exposition In ISM will have nn opportunity
of seeing what has never before been at
tempted In the way of a mining exhibit.
There is a movement on foot and It promises
to bo u successful ono , that if carried to Its
culmination will surpass anything that has
over been attempted In this lino. It is pro
posed to have nn exhibit by the states ot
Colorado , California , Nevada , Montana ,
Wyoming , Idaho and the territories of Utah ,
Now Mexico and Arizona that will show the
process of obtaining gold and sliver from the
time that It is taken from the bowels of the
earth until It is refined Into the oars of com
merce. A company has been formed with u ,
capital stock of $1500,000 to carry out this
scheme and the stock Is being rapidly taken
in all the states mentioned.
Tha plan Is to eccura about twenty ncrcs of
ground In the vicinity of the exposition
grounds that will bo occupied by the exhibit.
On the surface of the real oatato will bo
erected stncltera and refining works , where
ores will bo treated and worked from the
bullion into a rollncd condition. Then there
will be a shaft sunk to the depth of about
0110 hundred nnd llfty foot , which will bo
provided with four elevators with a carrying
capacity of fifty persons each that will run
up and down In u circular guide that will bo
surrounded by marble and provided with
convenient places to stop off. In fact this
shall will bo divided Into "stories" where
will bo exhibited the products of the loading
mines , nil so arranged as to admit of the
closest Inspection. At the bottom will bo
drifts , slopes nnd levels , representing
the different lodes and veins in the
various mines , aud they will all bo
supplied with real ere from the different re
gions of the states represented. There will
bo the free gold and stiver department and
the quartzlto , the galena and the carbonates.
In short , the precious metals will bo placed
thcro as nearly hi the manner ot nature as
To accomplish all this it Is claimed that
nearly ten thousand tons of ere will bo rc-
qulrcn , nnd that the supply will have to bo
replenished quite often , is evident to all who
know anything of the process of smelting.
The smelters will not bo of the capacity that
nro required In this section , of course , but
they will bo ofsulllclcnt magnitude to carry
on quito a business. The ere that Is placed
in the mines will not bo disturbed , as to do
this would of necessity require a constant
system of repairs to bo kept up.
A meeting was held In this city on- Friday
evening last at which the preliminary steps
wens taken oil the part of the mining men of
this section , and there wilt ba another on
Tuesday night. Governor Thomas presided
nnd will at the next ono. Meetings are being
held In the other states , and there is every
reason to bellovo that the scheme will bo per
fected in a short time and that the work will
begin very soon. It must be rouiomborod
that this is no part of the regular exhibits of
the states and territories mentioned , but that
it Is a private matter aud will in no wise
conflict with the regular work of the local
governments , which will not bo called upon
to contribute a cent to the enterprise.
The mala exhibit will not bo taken away
from the city when tbo exposition Is ended ,
but will ho allowsd to remain and will bo
maintained as a permanent display.

with n well proportioned tlguro and a hand

tendency to dress in something dark rather
than showy , she looks nn Ideal grande dame.

Wuile I do not know him as well as many of
the Drofcsslou , stlll.1 had a profound regard
for bis studlousum nnd In certain respects
his ability. Whllo greatly misunderstood ,
I believe the stage has suild"rod a great loss
throuah his death.
"It is a inlsfortunb to the English-speaking
stage that Mr. Booth has decided to retire ,
for America has ; not many eminent actors
and undoubtedly ho was and still is the rep
resentative Shnkesr > c'arean. Yet I saw Mr.
Booth nlno or ton' years ago and I bollevo
there were not moro ttian 200 people in the
audience. Hut then lie was only making his
reputation , his assaslntjlqn wlttuJtfr. BaiTott
having ooeri.'tbo cu'linlnatlou of his well de

"With the death of Barrett and the retire

"That is x-ory true , " replied the actress ,
"but what else could you expect in a'country
which refuses to < support high art ? Hero
farce , melodrama , Mr.Hoyt , Mr. McNally ,
nro uppermost to tha detriment of higher
typos of art , and until the theatergoing pub
lic demand a llttlo moro mental pabulum the
same condition will continue.
"This state ot affairs docs not exist lu
Franco nor In England. In those countries
tradition Is religiously respected , not nlono
by the actoror actress , but oy the public as

BjThea the talk dri ted to the Cdmcdlo Fran-
caiso , and thin gave Hhea an opportunity to
explain what she meant by "tradition. "
"It is remarkable , " said she , "how the
sociotaircs of the pomedie Francalso cling to
old customs. Take a young girl , say seven
teen or clchtcon , who"comes up for oxaml-
nutlea and Is required to give an Illustration
of her ability as a reader. If she were to use
oven so much as an Inflection different from
that used a generation , nny half a conlury
ago , she would bo infonned'that there was
no place for her. Individuality counts as
nothing ; It must bo tradition. So
they roll their r's and prolong
their inflections until ono goes mad almost
that such a thing as tradition exists. Yet it
has lt influence. It gives the beginner an
atmosphere which cannot bo obtained In any
other country in the world. That Is why the
Comodio Francaiso is the standard of auso-
lute excellence throughout the domain of the

"No , because I will not play a part that I
am not in sympathy with. In Josephine ,

Well , I know mow about It now than I did
boforo. Yes , I presume the farmers will

Tbo toplu turned on whisky. "Whisky

it , " said thu great distiller , whose

provements In the work. No business has
taken greater strides than the distillery.Vu \
have learned to ago whisky in the treatment
of the grain. Como with 'me. Hero wo re
ceive the corn. First It Is run through a
process which takes out every foreign par
ticle , dust , dirt , tnssol and nil. Hero thu
grains are , so clean they sparkle with bright
ness. We must have tlio very soundest ,
llnost grain. The poison In whisky Is In
fusil oil. That Is what gives men the do-
llrlums. How to got fusil oil out
of whisky or keep It out with
out Injuring the whisky Itself
has been the problem for n century. In my
father's tlmo It cumo out by time , and by
evaporation , through natural processor
while the whisky was in the barrel , I never
let It got Into the whisky. Ittiko It out of
the corn before It U boiled Into meal. Fusil
oil , or nearly nil of it , Is in the husk nnd ker
nel , or heart of the grain. I bavo machinery
which removes all that. When I lirst dis
covered that fusil oil was in the outer per
tions of tbo grain aud declared my Intention
to remove It , so that the liquor would ngo
fast and bo purer , other distillers attempted
to ridicule the idea. Ono man went so tar at
to come hero und buy this husk and heart anil
attempted to distill whisky from It , Ho
failed. Ho made almost clear fusil oil. ThU
whisky js essentially pnro , and is the clean
est made. "
This I found to bo a fact. The Jlnost corn

or operations. At no oilier pmco 111 "
Is the grata cleaned , then vlr-
tunllv cleared of nil Its cuticle. The on
line whisky , essentially pure , which could bo

took the whisky out of bond under three
