W. S. Greenleaf Finds Rich Deposit of
. Placer Gold of Unusual Forma
tion Near Cody.
CODY. Wyo.. July 10,-(Speclal.)-W. 8.
Oreenleaf, a mining engineer of Omaha,
haa discovered a placer In the Sunlight
camp, forty miles from Cody, which Is said
to be unique In the history of mining. The
gold Is not found in the customary black
or garnet sand, but coats the gravel and
porous, nonmlnerallxed rock of a blanket
some four feet In depth, DUO feet wide and
2.6DO feet long. This gravel and rock runa
W00 to the ton and a treatment similar to
quarta Is required. Jt is the mining engi
neer's theory that the deposit has been
made by the action of sulphuric gas. But
whatever Ha origin, It la unlike any known
placer deposit and is In violation of all
geological facts and mining traditions.
The ground had been located and aban
doned by nearly every prospector In the
country for the reason that they Invariably
worked below the four-foot blanket with its
rich Intervening values. Machinery has
been ordered and will be . Installed - aa
quickly as possible. It Is owned by Mr.
Oreenleaf and Floyd Co man of Cody. Aside
final derision on the part of the com-
from the Importance of the discovery to Ita
owners, it may mean tha opening up of
what Is considered by mining men to b
one of the most promising campa In the
state could railroad facilities be had.

NEW YORK. July 10. (Special Tele

are actually In tha race for the democratic

Littleton, Congressman James H. Havens,
Rochester; former Comptroller Herman A.

In addition to these the name of William
R. Hearst is mentioned In connection with
the honor. As to Mayor Gaynor, who, al
though named aa last In the list la doubt
less first aa regards tho Interest taken to
possibility of hla candidacy, tha opinion
of the political sharps, seems to be that
he haa no eye for the governorship and no
desire now but to be mayor and carry out
his ideaa about the proper administration
of government In thla city.
Gives Silent Consent.
The' mayor has expressed an entire lack
of interest in reports of movements to
make him governor, and has several times
denied that his authorization has been
given to such activities. It Is not likely
that he will take the trouble to make
many auch denials, but rather that ha will
go on in silence as to things political a
silence that should not be taken as mean
ing consent to the use of his name.
There la much talk of Thoroaa W. Os
borne aa an available candidate, typifying
the old-style democrat, and standing for
higher Ideals and harmony. Mr. Oaborne
Is head of the Democratic State league,
which organization expecta to have a
strong Influence In democratic councils
this year. It la aald, however, that oppo
sition to his candidacy la being atlrred in
hla own aectlon of the state, It being argued
against him that he haa not been a regular
supporter of democratic candidates in the

Hotel Knickerbocker, some time next week.
He haa enthusiastic supporters who hope to

Ely Would Get There.
It la aald that a considerable movement
for W. Carle Ely Is under way In the west
ern part of the state. Ely is a prominent
business man of Buffalo, who has. been
mentioned In provious gubernatorial years.
Mr. Bidder ts regarded in many quar
ters aa having elements of strength that
would make him a good vote getter this
Judge Koogh has been said for months
past to be the candidate who would have
the support of Tammany.
By not a few it Is believed there will
be a lively boom for Martin W. Little
ton a few weeks before convention time.
It is also rumored that Mr. Metx' return
from Europe will be the signal for several
functlona that will be the meana of launch

Burlington Railroad Resists Damage
Suit Brought by Government on
Ground that Act is Invalid.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., July 10. '(Special.)
Judge Carland of the United States court
In this city, has taken under advisement a
case which is expected to determine the
constfutlonality of what Is known aa the
double Indemnity law, enacted by the state
legislature at Its 1!H7 session.
The suit was instituted by the Unltod
States government, the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy Railroad company being the de
fendant. The government seeks to recover
from the railway company damages In the
sum of $42,793 for the destruction of timber
by fire alleged to have been started by
sparks from a locomotive belonging to
the railway company on Its lines In the
Black Hills. The timber destroyed by the
fire was In the Black Hills forest re
The actual value of the timber destroyed
by the fire waa $20,617.42, one-half of the
amount sued for, less the Interest. N. K.
Griggs, an attorney of Lincoln, Neh.,
argued the case before Judge Carland for
the railway company, while the argument
in behalf of the government was made by
United Statea Attorney E. E. Wagner.
The railway company based Its defense on
the contention that the double Indemnity
law is unconstitutional, for the alleged
reason that it is In conflict with both the
state and federal constitutions. Owlnc to

What Shall Be
WASHINGTON, July 10. At meeting of
the Interstate Commerce commission the
coming week that body will decide to sua
nend. pending examination, tha general In
creases of freight rates which have been
filed with the commission recently. These
increases of rates cover the most Important
territory of the United Statea from a rail
road and commercial standpoint. ' They
cover tha east, the region north of the Ohio
and east of the Mississippi and tha middle
west. Most of them go into enect August
i or thereabouts.
i A question haa been raised whether the
qotomlsBlon .would exerclee ita authority
under 'the law ln,Viii?fj VwS? 'as tt rhak
aweeping suspension of the general freight
rate increases.- Thla question has been
accentuated especially by the ' statement
given out from Beverly, following tho re
cent conference between I'reeident Taft and
Chairman Knapp. Following that confer
tnce It was given out that the commission
was going to administer the law In con
scrvative fashion and was going to auspend
increased ratea only In exceptional cases,
Thla was seized on in many quarters as
meaning that many of the general increases
which the roads had decided- on would not
be suspended and that part of them would
be allowed to go Into effect.
It is stated now on the best of authority
that the commission expects to suspend the
general rate Increases and that whatever
was given out at Beverly was not to be
construed aa meaning otherwise, so far as
the proposed general Increases are con
The commission .will meet July 12. All

the principles of the old party. He, with
his neighbors, were driven out. . And so on
