OUR MINERAL RESOURCES.
REPORT OF MAJOR POWELL, OF THE
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.
Ijst Year's Production tlio Greatest Ever
Recorded, Kspeclally In Iron and Steel.
Tlio Frothcut and Cabinet to Attend
Sir. Manning's Funeral.
Washington, Dec. 27. The United States
geographical survey, Maj. J. W. Powell,
director, has just issued its fourth annual
volume, entitled "Mineral Resources of the
United States, I860."
Tho report gives primarily tho production
nnd value of every prominent mineral sub
stanco mined in tho United States during
tho calendar year 1880; and in addition a
compact statement of prices, sources of sup
ply and tho technical matters which proved
Important during the year. It appears that
tho total value of tho mineral products, taken
as nearly as possible at the points of produc
tion, was inoro than $105,000,000, tho largest
mineral production yet recorded in any
sountry.
. IulSSStho value was about $429,000,000.
Many substances shared in this Increase, but
particularly iron nnd steel, which alono
showed an increase of $.'50,000,000.
In this connection, the report states: "The
production of iron nnd stool in the United
States in 1880 was much the largest that has
taken placo in any year in tho his
tory of tho country. Not only was this
result attained, but considering tho various
products as a w hole, tho increased production
In that year over tho preceding year was ' ex
ceptionally and phenominally large. So great
was our progress in 1880 that at the close of
the year the United States was tho first coun
tn the world in the production of steel and of
manufactured iron, and wo had niado n great
strido in lessening tho'distanec which separates
us only from Great Britain in the production
of pig iron. There was a moderate advance
in prices of all kinds of iron and steel in 1880,
The year was one of great prosperity for tho
American iron trade. It was not a year of
Bxcitemeut and inflation, but of steady and
solid progress."
Tlio distribution of the iron industry ovor
tho country is carefully treated, including a
careful sketch of tho southern developments.
The historical story of this industry from
1011) to the close of 1880 is compactly told,
and there is a table of the world's production
of pig1 iron from 1800 to 188(1, showing an in
crease from 825,000 tons in the former year,
to the enormous total of 20,000,000 tons in
1880.
In 1885 bituminous coal was the most valu
able mineral product, but in 1830 it was
passed by pig iron, which had a higher total
value than silver nnd gold combined. Won
derful prop-ess is shown in the use of natural
gas, tho consumption being more than double
that of 1885 and twenty times that of 1883.
It is estimated that the value of the coal dis
placed by natural gas in 1880 was more than
9,600,000. This is slightly less tliau half the
value of tho ietroleuni,
The report has been under tho charge of
David T. Day. It is made especially valuable
by the work of many prominent authorities
on mineral statistics.
The special chapter on iron was prepared
by Mr. James M. Swank, general manager of
the Amorican Iron and Steel association.
Mr. Geo. F. Kunz, of Tiffany & Company,
gives an interesting statement of the produc
tion of American gems, including a diamond
from North Carolina.
More than fifty industries are considered in
tho eport,"nnd they show that the year was
generally prosperous in spite of unusual labor
disturbances.
This report, for which there is usually a
large annual demand, can le obtained by
any one, by sending fifty cents, tho cost of
printing and binding, to tho director of tho
poological survoy in Washington.

The Storey Property.
CmcA-ao, Doc, 27. The Times says: Tho
flr&t stejB have been taken in tho transfer of i
the estate of the Into Wilbur P. Storey, in-1
eluding tho Times, to tho people who havo '
purchased it. Mi-. James J. West, ono of the
purchasers, was appointed receiver, as a part
of tho plan for the ultimate transfer to tho
Chicago Times compauy. Mrs, Eureka C.
Storey on the one hand, and tho heirs-at-law-on
the other, havo conveyed all their inter
ests to Mr. West. The object of making him

DEATH OF MR. MANNING.
The Inte Secretary of the Treasury Quietly
I Passes Away.
DANIEL MANNING.
Albany, N. Y., Dec. 27. Mr. Daniel J.
Maiming, the late secretary of tho treasury,
quietly and gitly ceased to breathe at'ltfW
Saturday afternoon in tho presence of his
family. Mr. Manning camo to Alliany on
Tuesday evening December 13 to seek rest.
Tho diagnosis of his caso at the time he was
stricken down at Washington showed that
he was suffering from Bright's diseaso. This
tho physicians believed was brought on by
close confinement in his private office in tho
treasury building, which was in a wretched
sanitary condition. A large untrappod pipe
connected directly with tho sower, allowing
tho free escape of sower gas into tho oQlco.
The first symptoms' of the disease showed
themselves soon after Mr. Manning began to
use the quarters in tho form of failure of
strength, shortening of breath and bad head
aches. After tho partial paralysis which oc
curred in March, 1880, a thorough medical
examination resulted in the discovery that he
was suffering from chronic Bright's diseaso,
complicated with hypertrophy and degenera
tion of the heart, and that the paralysis was
probably dtle to a hemorrahago in the brain.
There was no recurrence of the paralysis, and
his mind remained perfectly clear, to tho
last.
What Mr. Manning was and tho high dis
tinction to which he reached he owed to
himself. His boyhood was so hard and
short that at nine years of ago. ho was forced
to earn a living as office boy in the Albany
Argus, where ho learned to set typo, making
his way into William Cassidy, the editor's,
good graces. He was a steady, bright-faced,
active lad, with a direct, simple way of say
ing things, that soon made him available, as a
reporter. In time Cassidy made him city
editor and on Cassidy's death years after
wards ho stepped into his" place. Perhaps
tho rarest luck that over befel Daniel Man
ning was tho liking William Cassidy took to
him. The editor of The Argus was not only
a keen politician, nn accomplished bcholar,
and a brillfaut writer, but ho was ono of the
most highly bred men over known in Albany
swioty.
From his honest Irish parents young Man
ning got tho rugged constitution and power
ful frame that have been to him more than a
fortune and a college diploma. But from
William Cassidy ho learned suave courtesy
and easy dignity. It has often been said that
no man could associate with Cassidy and not
learn to behavo liko a gentleman. .Mr. Man
ning has been president of a bank, a leader
in tho enterprise of Albany and tho greatest
singlo power in his community. Ho has great
common sense and business sagacity, quali
ties that made his paper a power, and turned
the opixirtunities it threw in his way into the
roads to an honest and handsome fortune.
ROBBERS FOILEP
Attempt to Rob n Train Frustrated by tho
Nerve of (lie Express Messenger.
Atoka, I. T Dec. 27. A bold attempt at
train robbery occurred near this place at a
late hour last night. As tho south-bound
Missouri, Kansas & Texas passenger train
was about to leave two men boarded the
engine, and compelled tho engineer to ran to
a bridge a short distance from the statkyi.
Upon arriving tho train was stopped. At
this point five more men Joined tho two rob
bers wholhad first got on the train. ' All were
armed with Winchesters and revolvers.
Tho express messenger, John Grimshaw,
saw them coming and ho locked tho door,
who happened to bo in the car at tho time,
barricaded the doors aud uwaited develop
ments. The robbers, thusTbaflled at tho out
sot, forced tho engineer to get chisels and
other tools and attempted to 'break open the
doors. All assaults on it were vain, how
ever, and tho robbers fired several shots
through tho car, and thou went to tho mail
car, which was also bolted. They contented
themselves with firing through it several
times, and then went back to tho Pullman
and gave it a similar salute without attempt
ing to got in They finally returned to tho
express car, where Grimshaw and the bag
gagemaster still hold tho f Drt, and threat
ened to sot it on flro. This failed to frighten
tho sturdy messenger, and after having de
tained the train thirty minute.?, without get
ting a cent, tho robbers rather sheepishly
rodo away. No ono was hurt. Great credit
is given Grimshaw for his coolness.

IIIoh Alone in His Room.
New York, Dec. 27. Morey Halo Bartow,
a descendant of Nathan Hale, tho Revolu
tionary patriot executed as a spy by tho
I British, was.found deutl this morning in his
1 room, at 47 Lafayette Place, where had
' dwelt as a recluse for many jears. He made
a Jiving by canvassing for religions publica
tions, but spent most of his time in study,
and thoso with whom ho had business rela
tlons, .including Dr. Prime, of tho Observer,
and others, know nothing 'of his private
history.
Ho was a niemler of tho Geographical, Hfs
torical, Genealogical and Huguenot societies,
and was at one time secretary of the Society
for Advancement of Sciences and Arts. , He
had made valuable researches as to the cir
cumstances of tho death of Nathan Hle.
I The janitor and janitross of the houso
where he lived looked out for the old man's
comfort as much as ho would allow. They
wero surprised last night when ho departed
from his usual reticence and for the first
time spoke of his relatives. He said that he
had at last succeeded in making provision for
the comfort of his mother, who was eighty
three years old, and his three sisters, who
lived with her. Ho seamed very happy over
this, and soon afterward he went out to
cupper.
I An hour later he camo in, staggering from
weakness. Tho janltress ran to assist him.
"I'm dying," said tho old man. Ho was
. helped to his bed and given some brandy,
I which seemed to help him. This morning tho
janitress went early to tho room and found
him dead.
Dr. Prime and Rev. C. A. Stoddard wore
summond. They searched the room, which '
was filled with books, but could find no clew
to Bartow's history, except a letter signed

They sent a telegram to that place announc
ing uis uenui.

UNITED LABOR PARTY.
(t 1 Almost Certain to Put a National
Ticket In tlio Field In 188H.
New Yohk, Dec 27. Tho Tribuno says:
It appears now almost certain that tho viows
of Henry Georgo, Dr. McGlynn and a few of
tho other pipniinout leaders of tho United
Labor party will prevail, and that a National
convention will bo called before thoso of tho
two great parties. Many of tho lenders aro
In favor of holding tho convention in Chi
cago, but tho majority seem to think that
Now York would prove a more desirable
place since this city is tho party's great
rtronghold. This question will bo settled in
a few days.
There is little doubt that tho ticket will bo
headed by Henry Georgo, nnd that Judge
James G; Mnguiro, of San Francisco, will bo
tho candidate for vice-president. Judgo Ma
guire, it will lxj remembered, assisted tha
labor partj materially in tho state campaign
lost fall Ho is judgo of tho superior court,
of San Francisco, and is known as a self
mado man. His parents wero poor Irish emi
grants. Ho learned tho blacksmith trade,
Jtudying law at night, and during his leisure
moments. In 1870 he was elected to the
California legislature on tho Democratio
ticket and made a good record as an anti
monopolist'. His subsequent election to tha
judicial bench mot with general' approval
owing to his acknowledged ability and
honesty. About a j-enr ago ho formally
withdrew from the Democratic ranks and
jollied tho party of Mr. Georgo.
