threat conveyed in the letter and kidnap
young Williams, they believe that the let

Acting Under the advice of the police, Mrs.
. Williams Saturday evening placed a salt
sack, as indicated in the letter, under the
Fifth avenue bridge. It did not, however,
contain the money demanded, but was filled
with gravel. Officers watched the bridge
the entire night, hoping that the person or
persons responsible for the letter would
come for the sack, but their vigil waa In
It Is supposed that the persons after Mrs.
Williams' money either discovered the pre

SARGENT HAS A MYSTERY
President of School Boltrd Goes noma
to Find Lights Barnlngr bat
- x Doors Looked.
Ths family of President Sargent of the
Board of Education is spending the summer
t the lakes and Mr. Sargent li the only
occupant of the home on Second avenue at
night. Saturday night he walked home in
company with H. W. Binder and another
. friend living In the neighborhood. As they
approached the Sargent realdence they were
surprised to notice the entire upper portion
of the house brilliantly lighted up, al
though all the blinds on the windows were
drawn down. '
Mr. Sargent divided his forces, suspect
Ing that burglars were holding high car
nival in his house. Mr. Binder waa assigned
to guard the back door while Mr. Sargent
watched the front entrance. The friend was
detailed to telephone for the pollc and
arouse aom of the menfolk living near by.
Several responded to the alarm and by the
time Captain Maltby and Detective Calla
ghan arrived on the scene the house was
guarded at all points.
Then it was decided to march upon the
houao and Mr. Sargent, with as little noise
as possible, opened the front door. Not a
sound could b heard upstairs as the offi
cers with drawn revolvers proceeded to the
second floor. Everything appeared to be in
perfect order and thorough search failed
to reveal any trace of burglars. Investiga
tion showed all the doors snd windows se
curely fastened,, but no, explanation was
forthcoming as to how the lights In the up
per part of the hous had been turned on.
Mr. Sargent had not been home since the
afternoon and he la still seeking a solution
of the mystery.

PREPARING FOR CONVENTION
Republicans of lorn to Held Bute sleeting
TO NAME CANDIDATES BY ACCLAMATION
With the Exception of Clerk and Re
porter of Snprense Co art and Rail
road Commissioner There
Will Be Xs Contest.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. July 27. (Special.) The
preparations for the republican state con
vention are Bow complete and a number
of the candidates are already on the ground
ready for the contest of this week.- The
convention will have 1,233 delegates, which
will nearly half fifl the large auditorium In
which the meeting will be held.'
There will be an array of distinguished
Iowa republicans present. Including the sen
ators and most of the members of the
house. It Is understood that Secretary
Jamea Wilson of the Department of Agri
culture Is coming as a delegate from Tama
county. It Is alao anticipated that be will
be a member of the committee on resolu
tions, and as a member of the cabinet of
President Roosevelt will have great Influ
ence on that committee. In several dis
tricts there will be spirited contests for
places on the committees, particularly on
the committee on resolutions, and a strong
effort Is to be made to have a committee
that will prepare a platform leaving out
the reference of the last year's platform to
removing protection that ahelters monop
olies. Some pressure la being brought to
bear from the east In this matter.
Last year's Iowa platform was recognized
as a liberal one, and it Indicated a willing
ness to have the tariff schedules revised
whenever the trusts are making profit
therefrom. Upon this platform Governor
Cummins stood squarely and made his fight
and secured the biggest majority ever glvan
any candidate In Iowa. But this Is a con
gressional year and members of the national
congressional committee have pointed out
that Inasmuch as there are two members
of the cabinet In Iowa the Iowa platform
will be regarded as something of a national
platform, and If there Is any liberalism in
It the eastern republican candidates for con
gress will suffer from lack of funds with
which to carry on their campaign. Con
gressman Hull of this city is at the head of
the congressional campaign and expects
soon to go east to help In the fight In east
ern districts. On the other hand, the friends
ol Governor . Cummins Insist upon practi
cally the same platform this year as last
There ts no change In regard to candi
dates. The candidates for secretary, treas
urer, attorney general, auditor and two
Judges will be named by acclamation. There
will be sharp contests for clerk and re
porter of the supreme court and for rail
In the Ninth and Fourth districts there
will be contests tor places on the state com
mittee. Senator Bruce of Cass seeks re
election In the Ninth and is opposed by J.
S. Dewell of Harrison and others. There Is

lfatnral Gaa Near De Moines.
For many years it has been known that
natural gas was to be found near the large
coal bede in this county and a few years
ago the county put down a gas well on its
farm north of Des Moines. The town of
Ankeny, on the Northwestern railroad north
of Des Moines, has recently commenced
using natural gas, and preparations are be
ing mad for piping the gas to the resi
dences of the' town for illuminating pur
poses. The gas Is of good quality and there
Is a steady flow from several wells.
Socialists Meet In av Park.
A meeting of socialists was held In Union
park In this city today, addressed by W. A.
Jacobs of Davenport organiser for the party
In this state. After the socialists had se
cured tacit consent of the park board tor
thla meeting an effort was made to keep
them from having the meeting, but as they
have been given the privilege' of holding
meetings regularly every Sunday In the
parks nothing could he done. It Is probable
that because of the objection of the people
the park board will have to prohibit all
political meeting in th parks. - Jacobs is
engaged in organising a socialist party In

The survey of the new lnterurban rail
road from Dea Moines to the western part
of the state is progressing well. The party
of surveyors running a preliminary line
has reached the western part of Guthrie
county, having passed through the towns
of Adel, Panora and Guthrie Center. The
surveyors give little Indication of the pur
pose of the survey beyond stating the fact
that It will be continued on through Har
lan and Audubon. Dea Moines capitalists
are supposed to be back of the movement
and an electric line will be constructed as
soon as the franchises can be secured

The grand lodge of United Workmen for
Iowa held a special session at Waterloo
the past week and grand officers from here
took a prominent part. This in the old
lodge which seceded from the national
organisation of the Ancient Order of
United Workmen many years ago. At the
present time the membership Is about 1,000,
The grand lodge has about $14,000 on hand
with which to pay death losses and has
debts amounting to about $50,000, most of
which would bs due In October next The
special session waa called to arrange for
funding this debt so that ths lodge could
continue business, and the constitution was
amended to permit of this.

The recent floods have swept away seven

which were built and maintained by tb
Board of Supervisors. Other Ilk struc
tures and stons culverts hava been seri

One hundred and twenty-five men are em
ployed on the mill of the Penobscot com
pany at Garden City and expect to have it
in running order by the 1st of September.
The company, which is a close corporation,
ts aiming to have one of the best cyanldlng
mills In the country, and ao far has been
sparing no expense to make It so. Devel
opment work on the Penobscot and Reali
sation groups of the company has reached
such a stage that It has opened up the
ore shoots In both In such a manner that
not the leaat trouble will be experienced
In getting out ore enough to keep the mill
going, and should the company conclude
to add an additional 200 tons to its ca
pacity ft can easily be supplied. The new
hoist and air compressor plant has been
installed and both are working smoothly,
so the mines are prepared for the actual
work of getting out ore, which will be
started In a very few weeks.
The Dakota Mining company Thursday
deposited the results of the semi-monthly
clean-up of Its mill In the First ward of
this city with the United States assay of
fice.' Ae the mill had not been running
to its full capacity all of the time, the
clean-up was not so large as usual, amount
ing to a little over $8,000. The company
will soon begin the work of enlarging its
plant In this city, doubling Its present ca
pacity of ISO tons a day.
Work on the Hidden Fortune's big mill.
Just below the city. Is being pushed and
will be completed in contract time. The
contract"; calls for' Its completion within
four months. The stone work tor the
foundations has been completed, and as
soon as the spur to. the mill site, which is
now under construction by the Elkhorn
railroad, la completed, the delivery of ma
chinery will begin. The company has

The Pluma Mining company on Friday
etarted ten stamps of its mill at Pluma
station, two miles above Deadwood, on ore
from Its property near Lead. The ground
of the company adjoins the townslte of
Lead on the east and has been worked
extensively In former years, the company
having allowed It to remain Idle until
recently, when a reorganization was
effected. The ore carries values ranging
from 7.50 to $10 a ton, free milling, but
Its concentrates alao carry very good
values, so It Is more than likely that a
cyanide annex to the present plant will
be built should the test run of ore which
Is now being made prove satisfactory.

Another shipment of ore from It was made
this . week of four cars, and five more cars
of ore are on the sidetrack waiting to be
loaded. The last shipment went as good
as $30 a ton, and as the ore Is very easily
worked the values were mostly all profit.
Shipments are being made to the Imperial
cyanide mill at Deadwood over the B. ft M.
narrow gauge. Last Thursday the miners
ran Into a very rich streak of ore, which
will go up Into the hundreds of dollars.
The ore was encountered on the top of the
hill in an open cut,- from which moat of
the shipments .have been made. The ground
Is under lease to Bart Harris of this placs
and he has increased his working force
snd will try snd make larger shipments.
Three shipments, aggregating about 130
tons, have been, made from the mine. The
ore body is not a very large one where the
present work Is being done, there being
but about five feet of It, but as It all av
erages up well everything that It met with
In the shape of ore Is being shipped.
The Michigan Mining company, which
owns four patented claims adjoining the
Two Bears group of mines, will begin ex
tensive development work on ' its ground
next week. The management of the com
pany believes that the Oro Flno vein runs
through the property, and the work will
be done In an effort to find this vein, which,
when it was being worked, was one of the
richest In the Bare Butte mining district.
The directors of the company held a meet
ing last week, and besides voting to begin
work on the property elected the following
officers: President, J. B. Mars; vice pres
ident, Erward Hanschka; secretary-treas
urer, J. R. Russell.
A new proposition In placer mining, or
It may be quarts mining, has come up in
the Ruby gulch district. The management
of the Portland mine has concluded to run
the surface dirt which Dverlles the vein
on the property through a stamp mill. This
dirt Is from six to ten feet in depth over
the vein, and It all prospects, running all
the wsy from $3 to about $18 a ton, and
for a distance of about 800 feet below the
vein on the .hillside. Jt has been pros
pected for a distance of 600 feet one way
and 200 another, and ' every panful of dirt
shows colors. It would maka Ideal material
to send through a stamp mill, for one
stamp would crush as much of It as could
be shoveled Into It without any troub'e,
and there Is nothing In It that would pre
vent easy amalgamation, all of the values
would be saved. The company Is still driv
ing Us main tunnel on the vein and Is get
ting out some, very good ore. Work on
the mill will begin shortly, and It ts hoped
that it will be In operation before winter

The fair in reality will continue only dur
ing the first three days. The fourth day

the ball grounds, which are situated within
the city limits. The board of directors Is
