-A cablegram from London tonight Bays:
''Word waa received in London today that
tlia Amalgamated Copper company has
bought control of Utah copper. Copper ex
pert aay If thla la true it means the be
ginning of a copper merger."
Effort to obtain expresslona from the big
Operators In copper were futile owing to
the fact that nearly everybody supposed to
be well informed on the aubject was out
of town. Charles U. Dlgnowlty of Salt
Lake City, one of the biggest Individual
producers of the country, was seen at the
Waldorf-Astoria. Ha declared that he be
lieved that the cablegram, "hit very near
to the truth.' "Only yesterday," he said,
'I received a letter from my son In Lon
don, telling me that arrangements virtually
'have been perfected for a merger of the
great copper Interests of the world on a
basis quite similar to that which has made
ao signal A success of the steel trust. He
told me John Ryan, president of the
Amalagamated; Prof. Penrose, organizer of
the Utah Copper company and Its directing
genius and other big men In the business
were In Loitdou and they had entered Into
an agreement with the Rothaohllds, the
Baron Illrsch crowd and other groups of
English capitalists specially Interested In
copper, whereby production Is to be con
trolled and the Industry put on a footing
similar to the steel and Iron industry.
Morgan Harking, It.
"I have known for a year of efforta In
this direction, but 1 did not place much con
fidence In them until I learned that J. P.

with the Rothschilds and Baron H'rsch
crowd before he left London about two
"I now . feel satisfied that the merger

copper on the stock exchange and la
Europe for the last week or so confirms
my opinion. TJtalis gave gone up rapidly
as had also Amalgamated. " '
"Contrary to general belief the Ouggen
thelms don't own or control the Utah prop
erties. They merely have a long term con
tract for amelUr.g the products of those
properties. Thla, In a sense gives them con
trol, but not the scrt of control that would
enable them to prevent the sale of the
properties to the Amalgamated or any other
Concern strong enough to puy mem.
"Then, too, I "knew that Prof. Penrose,
who developed the properties and who still
in the dominant factor In their management,
liaa been working harmoniously with the
Morgan-Guggenheim crowd to bring about
a, 'gentlemen' agreement.'
"If the arrangement ha at last been ef
fected It means much to the Industry. We
Independent producers will be benefitted
quite at much as the big fellows. We will
make a bigger porfit than we have been
permitted for the last year by the amelter

know, Is controlled by the Guggenheim,

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 24.-(Speolal.)
This is the time when all the government
departments are engaged in making con
tracts for fixtures, supplies and material,
also, for the construction of public build
Ings. The result of the recent opening of
bids demonstrates very clearly the condi
tion of business throughout the country.
There are a number of big concern, es
pecially among manufacturer of steel, that
never bid upon government work when they
have plenty of commercial business to at
tend to. They seem to go upon the theory
that government contracts are the least
desirable for a manufacturer and tbe reason
la tl.at the technicalities which surround
most of the contract are so great and
that the action of some of the minor offi
cials and employee of the government In
enforcing these technicalities are ao annoy
ing a to frequently deprive the contractor
of every particle of profit. The most no
ticeable difference between bid this year
and those of previous openings is found in
the time of delivery for contracts running
Into thousands of dollars. Last year it waa
possible to secure bids ranging from $0,000
to $10,000 for fixtures and supplies, with de
liveries of sixty or ninety days, or at the
farthest, four months. In nearly every In
stance noted this year the concerns which
are recognized a the beat and moat re
liable will not agree to do such amount
of government work under -six to eight
Tbe Inference drawn by the department
officials from this state of affairs la that
manufacturing plants are running to their
full capacity and that manufacturer do
not care to Involve themselves In a ' lia
bility for liquidated damagea by promising
deliveries within a shorter period. In other
words they have plenty of bualneas aalde
from that secured from the government
and Uncle Sam must wait hi turn Instead
of being granted favors not extended to th
commercial world. .

Uncle Bam Is ,now annually pouring
money Into the lap of the rest of the world
In other words, the flow Is no longer In
the direction of the United States, from
abroad. It la In the direction of the rest
of the world, from the United States.
The balance of trade on the face of
things la still In favor of the United States;
that is, the statistics of the Department
of Commerce and Labor ahow this country
Is exporting more than It la importing. Fig
ures recently given out by the Department
of Commerce and Labor showed the excess
of exports over tmporta waa $187,111,349.
Thla, however, 1 an extremely small ex
cess, the lowest In recent years. '
But the small balance of trade In our
favor, as shown by the figures. Is much
more than counterbalanced by the fact that
large sums of money go out annually from
America which are not Included In the
term of exports. These sums go mainly
to Europe. They consist of the following

money sent abroad by persons of foreign

vary widely. But It Is said from good
authority that from $100,000,000 to $160,000,000

ROTH CONVENTIONS ON RECORD
Aajamet county Option, but
Both Sidestep Anr Aetlon on
the Initiative' and Refer
endum. GRAND ISLAND, July !4.-(SDeclal.)
The county optionlsts of this county who
attempted to prevent resolutions from being
adopted in either one or the other of the
two oounty conventions are decidedly dis
pleaaed today, and perhapa especially1 so
on the democratic side becauae of the de
feat, likewise of the Initiative and refer
endum endorsement offered by W H
Thompson, . F. W. Ashton and William
Gideon. The latter it a democratic candl-
Vta for nomination; tor the legislature.
He la an avowed county optionlst. The
other two candidates are openly opposed
to it. On the republican side there like
wise came out an avowed county optionist,
followed by two candidates openly opposed
to county option. Both conventions de
clared against cunty option and both con
vention, sidestepped any recommendation,
however mild or nonessential, of the Initia
tive and referendum. "If you' had found
th platform and proceedings of both con
ventlona on the street this morning," said
an "optionlst," you couldn't have told the
difference between them and wouldn't have
known which wi.i the democratic and which
was the republican record. Aside from the
fact that, in thla county, It Is generally re
garded as absolutely .hopeless for either
party to win on a county option platform
there Is no apparent reason for the similar
ity in action. In the democratic convention
each of the three members of the resolu
tion committee brought In a different re
port. Mr. Thompson's opposed oounty op
tion and favored no change In the Slocum
law. . It recommended the Initiative and
referendum In a general sense. 'Mr. Ash
ton' opposed county option and recom
mended no change In the Slocum law, stop
ping there. Both Instructed the county
delegation to the state convention to vote
the sense of the resolution as a unit. Mr.
Gideon's report dissented from this unit
feature. There was the most Intense de
bate, not free from personalities, Mr. Ash
ton declaring that he would favor it In
the state convention, but being unwilling
for Mr. Eryan to dictate In tl.o cuuuiy
convention. The Gideon report at no time
had a look-in. After a struggle . lasting
two hours a vote was taken and resulted
2ti for the initiative and referendum declar
ation and 27 against.
In the republican convention the resolu
tions committee consisted of A. F. Buech-
ler. Seth Wilson, H. E. Clifford, T. V. Blrri'
and Dr. H. C. Miller. The committee
brought In a unanimous report, concluding
with a declaration against county option,
an instruction to the delegates to vote
against It as a unit and a pledge that the
republican candidates for representatives,
if elected, would vote against any county
option bill aa at present proposed, with a
declaration for a preference, as compared
with county option, for the settlement of
such questions by means of a limited In
itiative and referendum law. So opposed
were a. majority of the convention even to
this, however, that this declaration was
voted out of the resolution by a substantial

Small accident to hia machine and to
Mars' craft also had delayed proceedings
between S and 6. But during this time th
wind died down and, although the humid
ity was not great, conditions for flight
had become excellent. Moreover, a patient
crowd of S.OOO or 9,000 persons deserved to
be rewarded with a good showing.
It waa Just 5:55 when Curtiss got away
his aeroplane, rising a few seconds after
the preliminary skim along the ground.
The small plane of the front control and
the aallerons were promptly set at a sharp
angle and the aeroplane mounted rapidly
Into the air. As he flew west It could be
seen by every one that he wa. ..ir,i

clared, "Hell ahow you inmothln.

a pretty dip and sailed over th grandstand.
When he had turned here again he et th
crowds wild by shutting off hi engine and
letting the aeroplane shoot swiftly toward
the earth. When he had descended thl
way fifty feet or so, the propeller would
again start up, the nose of the craft point

quickness of the turns in midair. Curtls
managed to change the direction of his
course almost at right angle.
Mar Makes Good Flight.
A little later Mara mad hli rirst good

won warm applause, the crowd recognis

Eugene Ely met with hard luok durlraf
the afternoon. He had a minor accident
early In the afternoon and his car waa
laid up for torn., time. Whin he cam
out again, he made a persistent effort.
Up the, field he flew and, although forced
to land before flying high, did not stop,
but ran along the ground for some dis
tance and then rose again. But stilt he
did not get high Into the air. He now
made another short flight down the field
and this time In alighting broke aother
two ribs of his machine.
Ely will try again this evening and will
make a desperate effort, for hia father
will be on hand from Davenport, I., to
watch him. Ely wishes to qualify here for
