TURKISH TROOPS ASKED TO ABANDON CHASE OF BRI(iANDS Constantinople, Oct. 12.--In compli- ance with a request from ~Vashington the search by Ottoman troops for the abductom of Miss Stone, the American missionaxy, has been abandoned, it be- ing feared that the brigands would kill /her should they be closely pursued. Ar. rangements are now being made to pay .the ransom demanded. Three battalions of the Sixth Bulgar- ian infantry regiment marched through the country between Dubnitza and Samakoy and searched the villages of the Riloklosters district, in one of which it was reported the brigands had concealed Miss Stone, says a Sofia cor- respondent. Colonel Gaschof, at the head of a searching party composed of 300 Bulgarian infantry and 500 dra- goons, has been scouring the ranges of Dospat and Rhodopegelbirgen. The American consul general at Con- stantinople has arrlved at Sofia with an Evangelical pastor from Phillipolis as dragoman, and both are taking ener- getic steps with the Bulgarian govern- ment to eff.ect Miss Stone's release. The reputed leader of the gang who killed Stambouloff has met his fate. Suspected of being associated in the capture of Miss Stone, he was shot dead on the frontier near Kostendit. The second appeal is as follows: "To the People of America--The prompting of our hea~s compels us to issue a second urgent appeal to the peo- ple of America to come to the rescue of Miss Ellen M. Stone, the American mis- sio~.ary now held captive by brigands in the Balkan mountains for a ransom of $110,000. Nearly one-half of that sum is yet to be raised. "Private adviees receiw-'d yesterday were to the effect that it was absolute- ly necessary to raise the full ainount at once. The story of a thirty days' res- pite is absolutely discredited in the best-informed circles. "To-day's ~nformation from Washing- ton is that the outlook is far from be- ing so reassuring as was hoped yes- terday. "The public should not be deceived by the idea tt;at the American board, as such, will pay any of the ransom. It has officially decl'lred that it could not, although its members have unanimous- ly expressed sympathy with the move- meat. "Will not pastors, tender-hearted wo- men, patriotic men and representatives of commercial and financial activity ev- erywhere; will not every one aid by giving and soliciting until the entire J , ,, ,J I [ COLORADO NOTES. The Colorado Kennel Club will hold its fall exhibition in Coliseum, hall Denver, November 21st, 22nd and 23rd. The President has appointed Chaxles Hartzell of Denver secretary of state for Porto Rico and he will leave for that Island immediately. Th6 City Council of Pueblo has de- cided to offer a reward of $500 for the capture of the perpetrator or perpetra- tors of the recent outrages. The total number of children of school age in the Cripple Creek dis- trict, according to the report sent out by the county superintendent of schools, is 4,001. Lansing Warren, editor and pub- lisher of the Milwaukee Sentinel, for- merly of the Denver Evening Times, died at Milwaukee October 13th of typhoid fever after a three weeks' ill- ness. H. H. Moore, one of the men charged with counterfeiting C. F. & I. Company pay checks, on being arraigned in the district court at Pueblo entered a plea o2 not guilty, and was bound over to the District Court in the sum ~)f $2,- (hJ0. A.resolution is before the City Coun- cil of Denver and has already been passed by the Board of Supervisors, to change the name of City park, the principal park of Denver, to "McKin- ley park." WASHINGTON ( OSSlP Lord Pauncefote, the British ambas- sador at Vtashington, celebrated his seventy-third bil~hday on September 13th. According to a r~port of the Navy Department, fair progress was made on the armored cruiser Colorado and the protected cruiser Denver during the past month. The former vessel wan advanced from five to seven per cent. toward completion and the latter from fifty-five to fifty-seven per cent. The monitor Wyoming still remains seven- ty-five per cent. It is recommended by Rear Admiral Crowninshield, chief of the naviga- tion bureau, that our vice admirals be created, reducing the number of rear admirals to fourteen, if necessary. It is said that the United States often has been in a humiliating position on impm-tant occasions abroad by reason of the low rank of its naval represent- atives. The report closes with an earnest recommendation for the crea- tion of a national naval reserve. It has been determined at the War Department to send .troops to the Phil- ippines to take the places of those whose term of enlistment expires. Where the re-enlistments are not large in any one regiment, their places will be filled by separate detachments of recruits. If any considerable number of enlistments expire in a single or- ganization, it is probable trat the or- The Georgetown correspondent of a Denver paper says the tonnage that will be shipped from Georgetown this year will far exceed that of any other recent year, and the increase in pro- duction that has marked the renewed activity this season is leading up to still greater things for 1902. The pa~t summer has been notable for the num- ber of new enterprises instituted, and also for the number of old propesltions that have again attracted the attention of mining men who are backed with sufficient capital, sooner or later adding them to the long list of steady produc- e~. Many of them have already en- countered pay ore in a comparatively short time. ]Decadence of Leasingo & Cripple Creek correspondent says that by actual observance It can be Istated that there are fewer lessees at work in the district than at any pre- vious time in the history of the camp, and while this fact has been uni- Iversally attributed to the high royal- ties demanded, such is not altogether correct. Royalties are no higher to- Iday than they were four or five years ago, when the lessees on Beacon, Ra. "will all be developed and worth a hun- dred time~ $150,000. It needs capital to introduce mills and then it will pay. My husband and I have had a ~re~*. deal of money. I put through a $10,- 000 mining deal once myself. We have put a great deal of our earnings back into the ground--on these pros- pects. We have tin claims covering in all 410 acl~es. They are right at the town of Or~qlle, on the Burlington railroad. The average value of the ore from the best developed one of these claims is five to seven oer cent. of tin. Think of that when it is Con- sidered that the average value of Gem. wall, England, tin ore from the great- est mines in the world of that metal is only 1~) per cent. The caaiderito or most valuable p~rt of the ore in my mines carries seventy,six to seventy- eight per cent. tin. "I went to the Black Hills in 1885 and have stayed there because I be- ~lieved I could get rlch. My husband is in Alaska and I am attending to our joint business matters in the Black Hills.
