of the Saengerfest Athletic association
of Cincinnati express the fullest de
termination tonight that the Jcffrles
Ruhlln light will be pulled off here on
February 15, but the preponderance of
public sentiment is to the contrary.
The ministers held an enthusiastic

and other organlatlons opposing the
light were unusually active. Tlonight
the directors gave out the following:
"The members of the Saengerfest Ath
letic association company today re

METEOR FALLS INTO A LAKE.
Nearly Blinded a Farmer and Knocked
Another Off His Feet.
Geneva, N. Y Jan. 1" One of the
largest meteors seen in this part of
New York in recent years fell Into Sen
eca lake, between Earls and Angus, 'a
few minutes before 5 o'clock this morn
ing, according to several farmers who
live In that vicinity. The meteor bur3t
not more than a second after It struck
the wuter. The concussion was dis
tinctly felt In this city by persons who
were on the street at that time. The
llrst news of the fall of the meteor and
Its subsequent explosion was brought
to this city by William Clifford, a
farmer who lives about half way be
tween Earla and Angus. He said:
"I heaid a loud whirring thnt became
a roar. I looked up Just In time to see
directly In front of me nnd high In the
air, but fully a quarter of a mile away,
a huge ball of fire, appaiently live or
six fee't In diameter, dropping from the
sky. When 1 saw the meteor was a
little noith of my farm and nlmost In a
direct line between me and Dey's
Landing on the cast side of the lake.
As It 'Struck the water, less than a
mile from shore, there was a terrific
explosion that knocked me off my feet.
The concussion broke several panes of
glass In the house and my wife said
that It shook tho building."
David Wa'.kor, a farmer who lives
about half n mile north of Mr. Glfford.
said that the meteor passed almost di
rectly over his head, and nearly blinded
him. "Its light." he tajd he, "was

AS TO STATEHOOD
There Is Absolutely No Hope
For It This Termx
And Mighty Little in the Next TJn
less the People of the Territory
Join in a Grand Pullinrj Con
Washington, Jan. 11. (Special.) The
annual estimate of the director of the
mint of the production oft gold nnd
sliver In the United States during 1900
shows -that Arizona stands seventh In
the ''.1st of gold producing states and
teirltories, Its output for the year
amounting to S3.500.000. It stands fifth
as regards sliver output, being credited
with 1,250,000 fine ounces. Colorado,
California, Montana, Alaska, South
Dakota and Utah lead the territory In
gold production, while Colorado, Mon
tana, Utah and Idaho were the larg
est producers of sJlver, In the order
named, Idaho leading Arizona by 250,
000 ounces. In view of the great short
age of water In the territory for sev
eral yeai3 Its showing Is not a bad
Colorado continues to head the list of
gold and silver producing stntes. Its
gold output last year Is estimated at
120,500,000. which Is about Sl&.COO.OU)
more than Cillfornla produced. At the
beginning of 1000 the total monetary
stock of the woild was nbout $11,630,
000,000, of which a little more than one
fourth was In uncovered paper. The
director of the mint finds thnt while
tho total money supply of the world
has Increased about seven billions, the
Increase In gold money since 1S73 has
been nbout. $3,000,000,000, in silver about
$2,750,000,000, and In covered paper only
nbout $050,000,000. A large proportion
of the Increase In gold has taken p'nee
within the last seven years. The di
rector states that the great outburst of
activity In the mining of gold which
followed the suspension of the coinage
of silver In India and the United States,
Involving the rapid development of the
mines of South Africa and the Klon
dyke. with tho Increased output of Cali
fornia and Australia, has resulted in
suoplylng the entire monetary needs
of the world without resort to any ma
terial Increase In the net supply of pa
per money In circulation.
The aggregate of gold produced in
the UnlUd States las. year Is given as
3.S37',213 fine ounces, valued at $79,322.
281. and of silver 59,010,543 fine ounces,
which at the approximate average
price of 01 cents for the year makes the
value 535.362.431. During 1E89 the geld'
production was $71,053;400 and the sil
ver production in excess of fifty-four
thousand ounces. The report of ihe di
rector of the mint Is being printed and
will be ready for distribution In a few
days. In view of the wide-spread In
terest In the money iiestlon Induced
by the last two national campaigns
this reporti ought to bo much sought
after. Arlzonlans dc.irlng It should
apply directly to Cforge E. Roberts,
the director of the mint.
NOT THIS TIME.
There 13 to be a meeting of the sen
ate committee on territories In a diy
or two nt wrilch the question of re
porting the 1)111 for the admission of
Arizona wl 1 be taken up. While It Is
possible that the committee will take
affirmative actloii as a consequence of
Chairman Shoup's friendliness to the
territory, there Is not a ghost of a
chance of admission In this fcssIoh. If
admission comes In the next session It
will bo due to the willingness of the
congress to take chances of adding two
democratic senators nnd a democratic
representative to the respective legisla
tive bodies. The argument that state
hood would bring population to Ari
zona, and that the new-comers would
In all probability make the state re
publican In n few years. Is by no
means a weak one, and It Is likely to
be employed from this time on by re
publicans who desire to seo the terri
tory relieved of Its present undesirable
conditions. Before this matter Is dis
posed of some of the territorial repub
licans who say they favor statehood
but are careful to do nothing to aid
the movement may be colled upon to
show their hands.

PALAVERING WITH MARS
Marconi Thinks " Communication
' Not Yet Opened
London, Jan. 11. In an interview
with Nicola Tesla in regard to his ex
periments in Colorado and the possi
bility of communicating with Inhabi
tants of the planets has aioused wide
spread Interest In England.
Ttwo expert criticisms have appeared
so far. SIgnor Marconi declares that
he has often received mysterious sig
nals until he had perfected his appara
tus. He attributes these signals to at
mospheric electricity. He considers
Tesla's signals due to local atmospheib
llntiirlwinnes. which nre osneel.illv
prevalent at a high altitude. This crlt-'
Iclsm Is obviously open to criticism it
self, Ignoring as it does the Intelligent'
nnd constant nature of the- signals re
corded by Tesla's Instrument, which '
removes them from the category of
Irregular, "apparently from nowhere,"
signals. Moreover. In regard to Marco
nl,a touch of professional rivalry can- '
not but be suspected In the Implication
that Marconi's apparatus Is perfect
wjille Tesla's Is not.
Prof. Fleming of University college
shows the seeptlsclsm of the old con
servative school. While admitting the
difficulty of saying anything beyond
that communication with the planets 13
within the ultimate reach of science, he
declares that he only works In tho
realm of fact, and fears that Tesla ha-j
been led away by his own Imaginations.
CLAIMS AT MANILA.
Report of Col. Sanno, President of the
Hoard Investigating Them.
Washington, Jan. 11. The war dp
pal tmont Is In receipt of a report from
Col. J, M. J. Sanno, president of the
army board of officers on claims at
Manila. Dining the past year the board
received a large number of claims ag
gregating about $2,000,000. The bulk of
the claims have been rejected. Some
of the cases which are now pending are
claims from Hollo, the cause of action
1n all of which Is Identical.
The different cases present a variety
of grievances. The claimants In many
cases failed to sustain the action they
brought. .Many of the larger claims
arc Included In the losses in Illolo, such
as damage to property. One claim
amounts to $557,000, for the destruction
of private property. The claims and
amounts of some of them are as fol
lows: , .
Loss of service of two employe.?, $740;
damage to drug store, $101,000; house
burned, $13,600; loss of household goods,
$15,000; 'oss of Indigo and piano, $12,520;
damage to sugar crop, $10,000; property
stolen, $1,400; phonal wounds, $10,000;
loss of cane field, $000; rent of steam
crane, $1,275; loss of draft, $2,000.
Probably the largest claim which has
been allowed by tho board Is that of
the Manila Railroad company for the
rental of its line for eight months. Tae

The average tlrno consumed in pass

This Is accounted for by the fact th.it
vessels passing through the canal un
der quarantine are compelled to avoid
any contact with land, and must stop
at night, unless provided with clectn-a
lights. Ninety per cent of the vessels
passing thiough the canal in 1S90 wcie

THE FIGHT IN OREGON
The Result o! It Very Much
Neither Senator KcBriilo Nor Corbett
Have Developed Sufficient Strength
to Call a Caucus The Crisis Next
Portland, Ore., Jan. 11. The regular
biennial session of the Oregon legisla
ture will convene at Salem on Monday
next. Piobably the most important
matter to come before the legislature
will be the election of a United States
senator to succeed George W. McBrlde.
The legislature, which Is overwhelm-
ingly republican In both houses, will
begin balloting for a senator in sepa
rate session one week from fTuesday,
provided an organization Is effected
before next Tuesday.
Senator McBride is on the ground
canvassing for re-election. Ex-Senator
II. W. Coibett has also publicly an
nounced his candldatfy. Neither can
didate claims to have a sufllcii'nt
number of votes to elect, and the Indi
cations at present are for a protracted
struggle. A call for a caucus Is being
cliculatd, but up to this time less
than thirty membeis have signed It.
It requires forty-six to elect, nnd un
less this number of signature!? Is ob
tained It will probably not be called.

.. PLAYED FOR THE DRINKS

case during the winter months, when
the Phoenix-loving visitors land here,
theie are several sorry-looking bank

There has been quite a number of
high-rollers here during the past few

it was $2.50. '
A PhlladPlphla gentleman dropped In
to take a "smile" with some convivial
companions, and, sjelng the wheel,
thought he would win the drinks.
His play from the first was startling
to his friends, who must have imag

white checks all over the lay-out.
He lost, and his next bet was $30.
He see-sewed for quite a while, and
finally bet $100; then $250, winning and
losing, but In the outcome It was hard
to tell how either he or the bank stood.
It Is stated, however, that he quit
$1,500 to the good. His highest bet
was $1,2C0, on the "red," which he lost,

A MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE
May be Valid But Is Not a "Chock
The United State authorities) In
Phoenix have a peculiar Chinese case
on hand. Deputy U. S. Marshal Por
terie found a very comely Celestial
female In town yesterday. 'He was at
tracted by her because none of her sis
ters who are In town or who have ever
been here are comely. The officer
knew that sh'.' waa n recent arrival.
She said her name waa Yoot Fong.
When she was asked for her papers,
without -which no Chinaman or woman
Is supposed to travel, she proudly pro
duced a -marriage license Issued at
S.in Fwiclsco to Yee See, ag2d 42, of
Sullivan Alley, and Yoot Fong, aged
22, of 10 Baker Alley. She also had a
certificate signed by G. C. Groezlngir,
a Jusitlue of tho peace, informing these
"whom It may concern" that he h id
united thi'se parties 1n marriage.
That was not proof of anything ex
cept that they probably had a right to
gt married. Yoot Fong did not seem
to understand what was meant by a
registration certificate, nor could she
give a satisfactory description of the
whereabouts of her husband. She said,
though, that he1 was not' In Phoenix.'
Her case will be Investigated by
United States Court Commissioner
Johnstone. niie authorities believe they
recognize n similarity between her pic
ture and those of Ah Gut, a young
China woman -who created some stir at
Los Angeles by Invoking the aid of
Americans to whom she said she had
been held as a slave.

A Case Furnishing Opponents of the
Law a Club
An incident occuncd lately which
furnished the opponents of the live,
stock fanltary law' an opening. Last
Wednesday a steer belonging to a cat
tleman living west of the city fell by
a paralytic stioke or a broken back.
Any Avay, It lay helpless, but still alive.
The owner d the steer came to town
to see how he could dispose of It to the
best advantage. He stopped at Hur
ley's marktt. He was told that the
steer was worth whatever the hide and
soap grease In It were worth. He went
away and later sold It at another
butcher f hop. The animal was put out
of Us misery some tlnv after noon
of Thursday. The dressed carcass was
received at the butcher shop late- In
the afternoon and the hide minus the
ears was hung up in tho hide house
for Inspection an Impossible perform
ance, since the ears were gone and
they bore the "marks" for which tho
law says Inspection shall be In part
iT-he attention of the health officer
was directed to the carcass and he
examined 4t. He found It In bad con
dition. The meat had turned black, a
circumstance due to the fevered con
'dltlon of -the animal when It was
killed. The health officer condemned
it on Thursday night and It was de
stroyed yesterday morning.
The law requires that Inspection
shall be made for "health, marks and'
brands," but In the cage of cattle
killed by those not regularly engaged
In the butchering business, the hide
may be brought to town stripped from
the carcass and Inspected in the hide
house and tagged there. It is Raid
that this Is frequently done. In this
case It Is charged that the hide had not
been tagged at the time the meat waa
condemned, and as has been said,
could npf have been Inspected iprop'jrly
at allany time after It was brought In
wltfisut the ears.

Dr. Norton has reduced vaccination
to a mechanical science and the meas

ADDITIONS MAKE ANSWER
Deny that the Court's Jurisdiction
Answers were made yesterday to the
city's petitions in district court for the
annexation of Murphy's and D;n
nls' addition. These suits were
brought In the name of Mayor
Ganz. as the law renulrrK nml
j it curiously happens that in the
answer In the matter of the Murphy
addition his name appears In the list
It sbould be said, however, that the
action to compel annexation was un
dertaken against his vote.
The answer alleges In the first place
that the complaint does not state facts
bulllclent to establish the Jurisdiction
of the court; that from the location oE
Murphy's addition and Its sparse set
tlement there could not be an extension
of the water mains or an extension of
the electric light service; neither could
there be a construction of sidewalks or
street grading without assessing the
cost against abutting property, and
that, It is alleged, would amount to
It is moreover alleged that none of
the municipal Improvements paid for
out of the city funds could or would b
extended to Murphy addition, so that
the residents would be subjected to
taxation without reciprocal benefit.
It Is further stated, that the city
once claimed authority over this addi
tion, but the only manifestation of It
was an unsuccessful effort to collect
tax and licenses. Tihere was, It is al
leged, no Improvement of any kind at
te.xpted, and not even was police pro
tection afforded. ,
Further objection is made to the
city's Indebtedness of $100,000, no part
of which was Incurred for the benefit
of this addition, which, however. In the
event of annexation would have to
assume Its share of this burden. It Is
further objected to the complaint that
this action has bee,n begun within less
than a year after the plaintiffs claim
of authority over the addition was dis
sipated. The answer In the Dennis addition
case Is the same, with the exception
that It is alleged In that answer that
Dennis addition is a residence dis
trict, without stores and saloons and
is consequently not In need of police
Both these additions were taken into
the city nbout a year ago on petitions.
Dennis addition came In with appar
ent willingness, but Murphy addition
was brought In squirming and kicking.
It was soon turned loose; It having
been shown that the petition did not
contain sufficient property representa
tion. Dennis addition remained quiet until
a quo warranto proceeding was
brought In the case of Bennett addi
tion, which had been similarly admit
ted. The defects of the proceeding in
that case were so plain that they were
readily admitted by the city and tho
addition went out.
THe same defects were found to ex
ist in the case of Dennis addition and
It too reverted to the outside. It was
then that the city t resolved fo'expanj
