It will be remembered that every man

President Roosevelt's views of railway

Haw Tfcelr Their Was Made.
How these delegates wr foisted on the
club is Just now belnr made universally
E. P. Bacon or Milwaukee, who waa re
sponsible for the calling of the Interstate
Commerce Law convention to uphold the
president's policy, invited the Commercial
ciuo to send delegates. Tbe executive
committee had always been la the habit of
refusing Mr. Bacon's Invitations and It did
not make thla time the exception. It de
cided not to send delegates.
But soon came another invitation, which.
however, waa not written, but spoken. The
railroads, fearing that the Chicago meet
ing would result in danger to them, as
signed their literary bureau to the task of
organising hostile delegations, the purpose
being evidently to break up the meeting or
in some way turn the tide of public sent!
tnent against the president's policy.
Nelson McLaod of St. Louis, who was
made chairman of the rump convention, is
president of the National Lumber Dealers
association. He succeeded In interesting
some Omaha members of this organization,
of which Prank Colpetaer i a member, in
the opposition idea. Tiiese men took up
the matter with the transportation com
mittee of the Commercial dub.
About this time it la said a minion of
the railroads came to Omaha with his
pockets bulging with money, literally
speaking. Ha offered to pay the expenses
of aa big a delegation aa the Commercial
club would send, provided It was hostile to
the purposes of the Bacon convention.
Passes Tinea la Vesrae.
It is not on record that the delegates
allowed him to pay their expenses, but at
that time passes had not gone out of exist
ence. - The transportation committee of the club
appointed a delegation of five, consisting
principally of Its own members.
.After the delegation had gone to Chicago
tha appointments were presented to the ex
ecutive committee for ratification. They
It la not now believed the executive com
mittee will resign on account of the re
pudiation Saturday of Its action, though It
Is said one or two members may do so.
Chairman Will U Tetter said be did not
anticipate tbe resignation of his Committee.
"The result of the controversy Saturday
will be that the club membership will be
called on oftener for Its expression of
opinion." said Mr. Tetter. " hope the af
fair will prove to be lor the best interests
of the club, by arousing some of the mem
bers from their apathy on Important sub
jects. It has always been very difficult to
get an attendance of members at any meet
ing, and the executive committee fro
qu.T.tly has to take action If anything Is
done at all."

The point to be decided is vital to the
case. If Judge Red irk decides be has no
Jurisdiction Mrs. Bassett's suit here will

by her husband will stand unchallenged.
If the court decides It has Jurisdiction the
taking of evidence for the defense will

is expected to be of a sensational naturu.
The arguments Monday morning were of
a technical nature and were mainly a dis

Only one brush between the attorneys en
livened the proceedings. In hta argument
Mr. Van Dusen alleged that Mr. Baseett

Monday morning in county court, but as It I
did not contain valuations, it gave little I
Indication of what the final appraisement i

Included. The inventory designated only
seven pieces of real property. Three cf
these are In Douglas county, one of which
Is -a section In Forest Lawn cemetery and
the other two In Highland Place and Mil

are in Cook county, Illinois, one consisting
of two lots and the other of four and one

an Item. "Due from A. F. Kountse and

"I'aisr. Ialwr, laisy!" yelled the tall,
narrow man. Jumping up and down as
though the floor of the room burned the
soles of his fert. and raising up bis arm
as though to bestow a blessing or invoke
s curse, he brought it down again with
all the vigor that his wiry frame poFsessed,

bellowing defiantly "Florence, Florence,"
at the top of a pair of lusty lungs.
The little man showed no resentment
Cm the contrary, he grinned gnod-naturedly

have come only from long practice. A
paterfamilias with shiny bald spot and
much embonpoint executed a dance that
was a cross between the Highland filng

cried "Cracker Jack, Cracker Jack," with

young business mu howled "I lack Ants''

The San Francisco Mining Stock ex

Crowding c'ose to the rail that
hemmed In this excitement a multitude of
people watched the antics of these seeming
madmen A motley congregation. There
were the frequenters of the exchange
the staid fcus!s? man who Just dropped
in and thnupht he'd take a little flier;
clerks from the offices in the( vicinity who
wanted to experience the 'sensation of
"easy money;" the capitalist whose profits
would only go to swell a surplus bank ac
count, and tbe unfortunate speculator wnos?
losses meant the want of necessities to his
family. Kven the "mudhen," reminiscent
of the good old bonanxa days, when he
exchange was on California street, was in
evidence to see if she couldn't get a "tip"
on a "good thing," and apparently l.ttle
realising the danger of being a "good
thing" herself. They all. in that spirit
of democracy that sprinting after the al
mighty dollar engenders, leaned over the
rail or stood near it, and viewed w'ltn
varied feelings the performances of the
mining stock brokers.
ew Era of Activity. "
For history la repeating itself in the San
Francisco mining exchange. A new era
of mining activities has begun that
threaten to equal the dramatic Comstock
days, when men whose names mean the
history of San Francisco weie seen upon
the floor of the exchange. Tbe halycon
days of the mining stock speculator have
returned and the broker rejoiceth thereat.
And sa far he has had good caue, for his
commissions are much larger than those
made tn the oldComstock days. A wtll-kno-Fn
broker for weeks hus been clearing
a day In his San Francisco office and
the seme comfortable amount in his out
side office. In brief. It's nothing Just now
lor a good broker with good credit at his
back to make j00 a day commissions.
And. of course, these commissions mean
that some of the brokers' clients are get

would hsve been accepted; last- March

The gold-bearing ledges of southern Ne
vada are responsible for all this. They
have shattered the book-learned theories
of the mining expert and Illustrated the
truth of the prospector's time-worn ap
horism that "gold Is where you find It."
The ledges of the sagebrush stste are
, honeycombed with the proppector's pick.
The desert has lost its errors for the
miner, tbe result of whose find is far
reaching. The golden streams flow down
the hills and swell the channels of com
merce, where men, like craft, are either
borne In safety to a harbor or are wrecked;
but all ride on 1t at their peril, for no
pilot can be absolutely sure of his bear

fashion, but is apt to caracole on Its down- I

Immense fortunes. They organised a firm
called the Union Mill and Mining company,
and It wasn't long before they owned the
great bulk of mills that crushed the ore
that came from these mines, gradually
gaining control of the mines themselves.

When I lived In Virginia City. In I'M,
it was considered suicidal for any of us
to seek outside mines in the state of Ne
vada, because of the deserts, the want of
water for diink'ng purposes, and many
other things. Today, however, it wo'jld
seem thnt the entire portion of southern
Nevadn. with Its sagebrush and Its deserts,
is rich In mineral lodes, snd with the new
districts continually presented to our stock
board it looks as though there were no
end to future discoveries. The principal
mine in Goldfleld, Tonopah, Bullfrog and
Manhattan, Improving as they do fn min
ing et lower levels, makes one wonder If
these can be a limit to these develop
ments. The largest number of stocks on the list
in the great Comstock deals thirty years
ago was 2:6. Today there are 450, and of
these 400 are in southern Nevada, outside
of the Camstock lode. The number is in
creasing every day. Two hours was all
the time riven then to the sessions of
the board; that is all the time that was
supposed to be given, but I remember how.
on many occasions, we tran.ct1 business
until gaslight. Of all the eighty members
of the board at that time, there are but
two remaining who were members before
me. The others are either dead or too
old to attend to business. Of all the
