In about fifteen minutes the current was shut off at the power house and tie victim was released. No serious injury resulted from the experience, only a rather unpleasant sensation, -while the himdreds of volts of Plectricifj- were runnin? through his body.

COLORADO BA>'K CLOSED. Ijind Frond Indictments Canse Fall- ores Indirectly. Durango, Colo., Dec. 17.—The Smelter City bank of Durango, a state in- stlutlon failed to open this morning. The deposits are believed not to exceed one hundred thousand dollars. Chas. McConnell, the president, said the liabilities would be paid in full. The lack of confidence, due it is said to the indictments of prominent citizens on charges of land' frauds under the federal laws ,led to the suspension of the Smelter City as well as the Colorado bank which failed last week. TliP block at the I^nyon 55inc Co.'s smtlter, number one works, which has been down for several months on account of repairs. Is to be started within the next week or two, or just as soon as enough ore has been shipped in to keep the new block going In addition to the other furnaces now lu operation. This we3k the ore cahs have been repaired and other machinery put in readiness for the starting of the new Mock. The roasting kilns have also been worked to their full capacity In order to get enough roasted ore ahead. The starting up of the new block will mean that twenty-five smelter men will he ^iven work. It also liroves that, notwithstanding the pres- rnt ore and spelter prices, the smelters can be run at a profit. Mr. Rogers, president of the l.anyon Zinc company, stated to the Register today that in all probability the furnace •would be in operation In two weeks. No action has been taken by the company about starting any furnaces at number two works. WAHTSl WILL GET LEHERS For Sale. RO.OOO feet of native lumber and 4,000 seasoned fence posts. W. A.

Washington, Dec. 16.—In past y&irs many communications have been received by the postofSce department requesting delivery of so-called "Santa Claus" letters to philanthropic societies and'others in various parts of the country, but the requests have always been denied, the department taking the stand tbat letters of importance would be classed with "Santa Claus letters"*through error; that it would be exposing the private parties confidential correspondence, that the letters might contain valuable in- closure, and that such a practice would not be in Iceeping with the principles of the sanctity of the mails. Now, however. Postmaster General Myers has adopted a more liberal attitude toward the children, as indicated by bis action today in issuing an order to postmasters all over the country, to whom letters full of trust and pleading are coming in such numbers from the little ones, to let the people of their cities know through the newspapers that mail addressed to Santa Claus will be delivered to any responsible parties who will undertake to act as Santa Clans' agents in the matter. The order follows: "Ordered that hereafter and until the close of the first day of January, I90S, postmasters are directed to deliver all letters ^rriving at their respective postoflices addressed plainly and unmistakably to 'Santa Clans' without any other terms of expressions identifying the person for whom such leters are intended, to any reg- nlarly organized charitable society in the city or town of address, to be used exclusively for charitable purposes. In the event tbat claim should be made by more than one such society for letters so addressed, such letters will be equally divided according to number, between or among the societies making such claim." As it was found ithat be name "Kris Kringle" appears In varlona city, directories, it was decided, fn order to avoid confusion and IOM of letters intended for persons ot tbat name, that the new regnlation should apply only* to Santa Claus.
