A TiiANsmi JUNE. H, L Webster, Manager of the LaEg-taag- te Mill. Visiting in Salt Lake. EIO IJEFOSITS OF UNIQUE ORE. Gold Tor.nd in Conglomerate Interstrati-fio- d W.'h Far.d5tone-Bong- bt a " 120 Stamp MJl in Chicago. "H. L. Webster. Johannisberg. Trans-vaal," was the name that caught the eye of a Ti.mks reporter on the Conti-nental hotel register this morning. Mr. Webster is manager of the Mining company, at Lang-tangl-iu the South African republic. In conversation with the reporter he said that bis visit to Amer-ica was for the purpose of purchasing machinery, and that he had iust liought a U'O stamp mill and concentrator from Fracr - Chalmers of Chicago. This out tit will cost tl..i company about l."i0,0(Kl delivered at their mine. The I.nngtnagte is an English company, but Mr. Webster said that the American machinery was superior to anything thev could get in England. The company has now a 70 stBiup mill on the ground and with the new machinery now ordered they will have by far the largest mill in South Africa and one of the largest In the whole world. They now employ 100 white men and from IMK) to 7iH) natives. The Langlaagte niiiin Is in what Is known ns the Witwatersratidl gold field and Is about Hill) miles from Kimbcrly. the famous diamond field, and IHM1 miles from Cape Town. The ledgo was discovered about four years Hgo. . Mr. Webster said that their gold ore was rather unique. The g'dd Is found in conglomerate. This conglomerate is in the form of rounded quart pebbles, cemented together with Iron. It is interstratilled with sand- - stone. The ore is low grade unci average from ll'i to.'0 per ton. but accord-ing to Mr. Wcb.ler, they have al-most an unlimited supply of It. They have what ho calls two reels, averaging from four to ten feet in thick lies. These reef have been proven for a distance of tltt miles along the ridge and have been tested to a depth of (100 feet with the diamond drill. 'This immense bed of ore, said Mr. Webster, is supposed to be the basin of an old lake, that in some earlier tig" was wiped out by an upheaval of the tuirface. of the coun-try. They are now working nt the northern end of the lake. The ruining outlook in South Africa, he said, was not at present very bright. The mines have not been paying as big as heretofore, but ho thought that this depression was only tem-porary. Mr. Webster has been visiting tho mines of Colorado, and was very much impressed by the ninny Improved de-vices for saving the precious metal ...tn..o..i.i. ii." ...u. ilitoo He will take in solne of the big mine of this section and then go to Montana and back east by the way of Ihe Hlaek Hills. He will remain in this country about a mouth and then return to Africa via Ktigland. A CLERGYMAN TERRI3UY MISUSED. White Cue. W h.paoUOUierwUa Abuae Hlaa U lle-pa- , tA at. Ransvs t in. Sept. ft.

Two nu n were seen on our streets yesterday conversing together til a fneudly manner. One was a brother-in-la- of old man McCoy, the other a of Anse Hatlield. They spoke freely of iho famous feud, and said thai by common consent it would be allowed to cease. All con-cerned have gone to work, and propose to live quietly. A number of the mem-bers of both factions are still under in-dictment for murder and lesser crimes, but will nrobably now not be troubled by the authorities. The feud has been in progress nearly twenty years, and in that time at least a score of the Hattields and McCoys have been murdered. Onlv one mem-ber of either side has been 'legally pun- ished. That was Cap" Hatlield, who was hanged at I'ikeville, Ky., some months ago for the brutal murder of Alma McCoy, a young girl, whom he shot down as she w;rs trying to esesipo from her father's house.'which the llat-lield- s had lired. Chicago mmi The Worlds Fair Directors Meet Cnce More to Select a Site if They Can. WASHING DILLON AND O P.SIEN. Not to Visit Chicago Unless, They Can Steer Clear of the Leaders of Irish Factions. Chicago. Sept. 9. Special. Much interest is evinced in the meeting of the Worlds fair directors which takes place tonight. They have promised to linally select a situ tonight, and there is fever-ish anxiety to learn if they will keep their pledge. If they should fail to act from one reason or another it will be regarded as a confession of utter im-potence such as would justify tho im-peachment of the board or the total abandonment ot the fair by Chicago. The election of a director-genera- l will not take place until after tho election for the state and county ollicers in November. If tho tax payers should fail to avail themselves of the opportu-nity to place $5,0(10,000 additional taxes upon them for the benefit of the fair then the directors would have but little use a for a director-genera- l and could give but very few reasons for their own ex-istence. The candidacy of Colonel (ieorge K. Davis has been so successful that his election as director-genera- l is conceded. The people may think that he is well equipped tor the position, but they have made it known that he is ob-jectionable to them because he is a pol-itician. If his election is delayed until after November, tho citizens, if they arc dissatislied with tho action of the directors, cau show it in a harmless way. Messrs. Butterworth ami Davis are both politicians, and there is a apprehension here that they will not be above wielding the great in-fluence which they possess as fair direc-tors and ollicials in the interest of their party. A I'rt.lnliitlou ttiiM. Wu niTA. Kan., Sept. 0. Each of the candidates for county ollices and each nominee, for tho legislature of tho late republican county convention received this week from Colonel W. H. Lewis, late police commissioner, who signs himself a committee of one, appointed by the republican club of Sedgwick county to determine the feeling of each candidate, a letter, in which are tho following two queries: t.

The inquisitorial body which has instituted these proceedings is composed wholly of pronibilionisls, who seem to have for their sole aim the retention of the present liquor laws, and who will undoubtedly be found op-posing the republican party at the polls next November. Murderously Assaulted, Ghkem astle, Ind., Sept. !) John A. Crose, book keeper of the first national bank of this city, was the victim of a strange occurrence last night that canto near costing him (lis life. Il was about 9 o'clock when he stepped out of his house into the yard, and somo fifteen minutes having passed w ithout his re-turn his wife became uneasy and went out in search of him. She' found him lying upon the ground and moaning from a terrible wound on tho back part of his neck. He was insensible from the effects of the blow and could give no account of the occurrence. Medical aid was immediately summoned, and though the injured man rallied he knows nothiug of the assault or how it was perpetrated. A railway coupling pin was found near the spot, which gave rise to the belief that the assassin in-tended robbery or murder or perhaps both. The affair is shrouded in mys-tery. Mr. Crose is resting easy today, though the extent of his injury can not be determined at present. IN rUU POSSESSION- - A Vaunt Umilhi-r- l'wipU Hot In th r. Hnom. Washington. D.

Basselt, a stock dealer and butcher residing in Albion, engaged in a dispute on the streets Sunday morning regard-ing the purchase and weight of some stock, l'nwkcs stabbed Bassett in the left side with a penknife. The wound was not at first regarded as serious, but tho condition of the wounded man be-coming alarming, Dr. Munford, of Princeton, was summoned and a surgi-cal operation was performed which dis-closed the fact that the wound was dangerous, and that internal hemor-rhage bad resulted. The patient is not expected to live until morniug. lew-ke- s at first waived examination, pleaded guilty to the charge of an attempt to do a bodily injury, and was admitted to ball in sum of 000. This afternoon another warrant was sworn out for his arrest and his bond has been increased to the sum of $3000. lriali Factions Cfiicaco, Sept. . Special. It is understood that when Dillon and O'Brien come to America, they vv ill not, forprudential reasons, visit this city. Here the are made to appear as if divided into factions and ready to kill each other, when really the only quarrel is between the leaders, There is a move-ment among the Irish Americans who have not heretofore posed conspicuously as "patriots," being too busy in attend-ing to their own affairs, to give give Dillon and O'Mrien a reception. If this is successful, the "leaders" will be kept in subjection, mid perhaps Home good liiavr result to the cause of Ireland. Should O'Brien and Dillon, however, fall under the influence of either fac-tion, it would be better for their cause if they had remained on the other side of the Atlantic.

Those who visit the agencies frequently bring information that consumption and throat ami lungt roubles nre thinning the Indians out. and that iinionir them are few who have not contracted disease of some kind. There can be no doubt about the demoralized condition of these peoole in every way, and it will but a few years before the Indians as a race will have disappeared from South Dakota. The severe winters and the efforts to have the liuliens change their mode of liv ing arc responsible for this. Coiisi.tvring Ballroad Kates. Sr. Lol ls, Sept !). Special.
