PRESIDENT BACKS SHONTS.
Oyster Bay. Sept. 16. A contract
for the hotel and subsistence conces
sion on the Panama canal aone, award
ed to Jacob E. MarkeL of Omaha, Neb.,
by President Theodore P. Shonts, of
the Panama Railroad company, will
This, in effect, is the decision of
President Roosevelt, who has approv
ed a report on the subject made to
him by Mr. Shonts. The contract
amounts in the aggregate to many mil
lions of dollars, but Mr. Shonts' report
indicates that it may be abrogated at
the will of the government, which ac
tually will own the permanent plant
used by Mr. Markel in filling the terms
of his contract.
Mr. Shonts' statement clears up al
legations to the satisfaction of the
President. He, therefore, has approv
ed the report and no further action
concerning the protest probably will be
Mr. Shonts says in his report that
the bid of Markel in every item but
one was either as low or lower than
the other bids, and that all bidders
were fairly treated on precisely the

Stranded Circus Back.
New York, Sept. 16. A number of
the members of the McCadon circus,
which was recently stranded at Gren
oble, in Southern France, have ar
rived here on the steamer Roma. Four
of the party were cabin passengers,
among whom was C. W. McLeod, ad
vance agent for the circus. The rest
came over in the steerage. McLeod
sajd the troupe had numbered about
300 persons, and that when it was
stranded because of a collection for
rent levied by a French financial insti
tution on the receipts of the show
120 of the members were left destitute.
The American consul at Grenoble,
Charles P. H. Nanon, cared for them.
Many members of tne circus are still
at Grenoble or Paris, so destitute that
they depend for support upon private
subscriptions of money.
SAYS BRYAN TO ROOSEVELT.
Will Not Make a". End of War by a
Scheme of Investigation.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 16. A letter ad
dresed to President Roosevelt from
W. J. Bryan, in which a plan for the
prevention of war is suggested, has
ben made public. Mr. Bryan congrat
ulates the President, in bringing Rus
sia and Japan together, and says:
"Why not ask Congress for authori
ty to submit all international ques
tions (when agreement cannot be
reached by parties interested), to an
impartial board for investigation and
report? Investigation will in nearly
every case remove the cause of com
plaint and reconcile the parties.
Questions which a nation might be un
willing to submit to arbitration in ad
vance could be settled by investigation
by an impartial international board."
London, Sept. 15. Reports received
from Copenhagen says that some of the
powers are intervening to secure a
peaceful settlement of the difficulties
1 etween Sweden and Norway.
No authoritative account has yet
besn issued regarding the progress at
Ksrlstaa of the negotiations between
the Swedish and Norwegian commis
sione.s. Both the Swedish and Norwegian pa
pers regard the crisis as acute. The
Swedish papers even talk of an ulti
matum and preparation of mobiliza
tion, but though the situation between
the two countries is strained, it is not
believed it will end- in war.

Flying Motor Stages Operated Be
tween Gold Camps. Telephones For
Goldfield, Nev., Sept. 16 The auto
mobile is gradually conquqering the
desert. The distance from Tonopah to
Goldfield is about 27 miles, and from
Goldfield to Bullfrog, the latest of the
great Nevada mining districts, is 65
miles. There is nothing but a desolate
desert between these points. There are
old-fashioned stages of the Deadwood
style that traverse these desert dis
tances, but the 20th century way of
traveling is by auto, over roads that
have been especially constructed for
From Tonopah to Goldfield the fare
is $6.00, and it takes you only a little
more than an hour to traverse the dis
tance. Each auto carries from four to
seven passengers, and the man who
drives the machine over the desert gets
$6.00. or the amount of a single fare,
for each trip that he makes. From
Goldfield to Bullfrog the fare is $25.00.
Most of the Goldfield-Bullfrog trips
are made by night, and they take any
where from six to a dozen hours, ac
cording to the ability of the chauffeur
and the stability of his machine.
The nights in the desert are usually
cold, just as the days are generally hot,
and a breakdown for any length of time
means discomfort. But these auto men
make use of interesting expedients for
obtaining relief. Bullfrog and Gold
field have been connected by a tele
phone line ever since the Bullfrog dis
trict was discovered, about a year ago.
Sometimes the auto comes to a sudden
stop, and you are told that it may be
several hours before it is in working
order again. The chauffeur reaches
under his seat and pulls out a little
box, with which he disappears across
the desert waste. He is headed for the
telephone line, which is near the auto
road, and with his tiny field instrument
he climbs a pole and in the shortest
possible time he has made his wire con
nections and is in communication with
the home office.
If the damage is serious, the company
will send out another auto to take you
on your way, and these rescuing ex
peditions are always outfitted with food
and water. Each machine is not only
provided with a telephone, but with a
fire extinguisher for use in an emer
gency. It was with the greatest wisdom that
H. H. Clark chose Bullfrog for his
tewnsite. soon after the discovery of
gold by "Shorty" Harris on what is
now the Original Bullfrog mine and the
Bullfrog Extension mine, three or four
miles away to the westward. The fi-st
Bullfroggers would have had their city
close to that original mine, and there
was a -:od when even Mr. Clark him
self, r, " r he had come into mammoth
minin: possessions on Ladd Mountain,
would ave had the homes of himself
and his followers in that section, three
miles from what are now the principal
gold-producing eminences. But he was
quick to realize the importance of the
later discoveries, and under his loader-
ship those who had first camped on the
western border of the Amerigosa de
sert quickly removed their habitations
to where the present town of Bullfrog
