The l!l Cloud Smelter in Silver ,IHs
tnet Cleans Up $34,000 in Ten Days
Trom the Lowest Gradu Ore on tint
Dump A Itonniiza of I iiiuuii-e
Yuma Sentinel.
After a ten days' run the Ued Cloud
Gold and Bilver iliuing Company at
Silver District put out their lire.-, to
cleau the furnace and take a general
ohservation of its workings. Every
thing was found to be in excellent or
der and the furnace will be started
again in a few days. There is no
doubt but what it has proved to be a
perfect success in all respects, and al
though running on the lowest grade
ore that the mine produces, its pro
ductions during the time it was run
niug will causo many a bitter wailing
from several parties who have had
that mine bonded at different times at
from ten to fifty thousand dollars.
The result of the trial run is nearly
twenty tons of bullion, worth 1700
per ton; a total of $34,000. When we
take into consideration that no ore has
3'et been smelted that has been taken
only from above the surface ol the
mine, and of that only what was cast
as being too poor to ship, as well as
the fact that enough of this class of
ore is in sight to run this furnacu for
nine years, at the lowest estimates,
and also the fact that the mine has
been prospected to the depth of 200
feet, and a solid ore vein 30 feet in
width which assays from seven to fit
teen times the amount which the ore
that has been worked has shown. We
say that when the vast magnitude of
this amount of melal, taken into con
nection with the formation and its be
ing a true fissure vein, is realized, the
largest mining property in the known
world is here in its infancy, and yet
this is conceded not to be by far the
best mine in the district. Our belief
has never wavered in the slightest de
gree, and after a two 3-cars' acquain
tance with this district that here is
the golden garden of the world."

could not be found. And so two years

for the ledge by the best prospectors
in the district, one of whom had act
ually cut through it and thrown out
ore in which gold waa visible. A few
days ago John Kciss, the owner of the
property, was sinking a shaft on a
vein of galena that crops upon it,
when his attention was called to some
ore which was being taken from a cut
ten feet distant. A close examination
disclosed a perfect net-work of wire
gold covering the entire mass. A ton
of ore was worked out in an arrnstra,
and yielded 58 oz. and lodwt. An ex
amination of the tailings by Fred.
Medler showed $500, and at least 400
worth of specimens were given away.
Longitudinally through the location
runs a strong vein of carbonate ore.
At the northeast end, numerous small
Veins are found, one ot which is
galena, and this runs exactly for the
place from which the ore is taken.
Altogether, it is a strange property
and a valuable one.

Detail of tho Triple Tragedy Killed
Yt Iille Kncelinjr in Prayer.
Chicago, December 10. Full de
tails nave been received of the triple
tragedy m Chester, lllinma Tb..
Times has the following account from
mat place: .Last Friday Louis Tock
stein, a man 20 years old, a farmer liv.
iug about a inilo east of this city,
auunvu mljus oi insanity nud was
urougnt to town and placed in iail
for safe keeping. Sunday his brother
luuh. mm uome. in the atternoon.
wncn leu unguarded, he torced his
sisters out into the yard, making them
Kueei uown anu pray, but was sur
prised by the return of his brother.
After getting Into the house he be
came violent and had to be tied down.
Monday he was delivered to the Sher
iff, tried by the court, and ordered
committed to the insane asylum at
Anna. He had to be held until Tues
day uoon for transportation. The
Shoriff placed him in charge of James
Waters and his brother in the St.
Charles Hotel, on the ground floor.
The prisoner was very quiet through
out the night and was awakened to
wash for breakfast. He got up pleas
antly and started to wash, when sud
denly he threw the water into Ger
lach's face and jumped for the win
dow. Waters caught hold of his coat,
but did not succeed in holding him.
lie and Gerlach pursued him, but tho
maniac bounded over fences and
ditches like a deer and was soon out
of sight lie ian west, down a long,
sloping hill. At the foot of the hill,
on a little plat of ground, stood the
house of Thomas Ryan, a small, one
story, whitewashed house, about one
hundred 3'ards from any neighbors.
The occupants on Tuesday morning
weie Thomas Ryau, an old man, wenk
and feeble, between 70 and SO years
of age; his daughter, Mis. Smith,
about 35 years ol age; Mrs. Smith's
daughter Sarah, aged 12, and Arthur
Uardoff, 10 years old. The maniac
stopped on the hillside and took off
his boots. Then he jumped a rail
fence and plunged bodily through the
window, smashing the glass and sash.
Overturning, the table, he rushed into
the bed room of old man Ryan and
commenced to pull him out of bed.
The b03, who slept with his grand
father, woke up and crawled over the
foot of the bed, and ran out-doors and
passed his aunt and cousin at the cor
ner of the house, his aunt holding an
axe in her hand. He kept running and
gave the alarm to the neighbors, who
hnstened to the scene, but too late.
Ryan, the woman and the little girl
were weltering in their blood, great
streams flowing from their heads and
throats. The head of the little :irl
was cut entirely off, leaving the chin
attached to the body, the head being
carried away by the murderer. The
neighbors were horrified and stood
stunned upon viewing the remains
while the maniac bounded over the
hills, swinging the bleeding head in
defiance. Gaining the woods, he dis
appeared from view, tearing the cloth
ing from his body and scattering the
pieces aa he ran. He cleared the
woods and came out at the back part
ol Dr. Gordon's premises. Leaping
the fence he rushed into the kitchen
stark naked, the child's head still in
his hands. The hired girl, Mary
Hichtcome, had just built the fire,
when Tockstein struck her with the
head, knocking her down. He then
rushed into the bed room of Mrs. Ed
ward Gordon, pulled her out of bod,
and would have murdered her, but
the screams ol both women brought
the hired man, Louis Hornbeck, to
their assistance, who, after a desper
ate struggle, succeeded in downing
Tockstein. Dr. Gordon and Horn-
beck tied him securely with ropes.
The madman struggled desperately to
get the head of little Sarah, saying it
was liis sister's head and he wanted it.
He was again remanded to the care of
the Sheriff. The facts of the case
have shown great neglect on the part
of all the officials connected with it in
not confining this madman in the jail.
The Times reporter visited the scene
soon after the murder and viewed the
bodies and the premises. Ryan's
body lay about ten feet from the cor
ner of the house. To the right lay the
hodv of Mrs Smith. About five feet
on the other side of her lay little Sar
ah Smith, the head having been re
turned to the bodj The sight was
horrible. Great poo's of blood satur
ated the ground in heaps of human
gore. The gory axe, on which the
hairs of the old, gray-hcaded man
were still sticking, was there between
the bodies, and the gold dental plate
knocked from tho mouth of -Mrs.
Smith, with her two teeth still at
tached. The axe showed of the yel
low clavon the outsido of the house.
There were no signs or any struggle.
They were killed on the spot where
they undoubtedly knelt to pray, l nc
maniac, standing there with drawn
axe, told them to make their peace
with Almighty God and waited wnn
imtnii Mirnftth for them to say amen,
striking the man, woman and child
almost simultaneously. The blows of
the axe were heard by the neighbors,
like the dull thud of one hammering

The old mill-stones are all being
taken out and new steel rollers are
substituted in their places. Wheat,
bv the new process of flour-making,
is not ground ; it is cracked. It passes
through fiye sets of rollers, each roller
set closer than the former. 'Ihese
rollers are thirty inches long and ten
lncnos m diameter. Alter passing be
tween each set of rollers it i3 " bolted,'
or sifted, through cloth. The last
rollers have hardly anything but
wheat hulls and tho waxy germs which
do not crack up, but smasu together.
So flour is now cracked and disin
tegrated without grinding. The first
rollers crack the kernels ot wneat into
say six pieces. The starchy substance
which rattles out drops through the
cloth sieves or bolting-cloths. Thcso
six pieces arc broken between the next
rollers into thirty-six pieces. Then
the white starch-crumbs arc sifted out
again, and the thirty-six pieces are
passed between still tighter rollers,
which crack them into -10 pieces;
another set of rollers multiply each of
these particles into six more, making
them aggregate 1,290. Another set of
rollers screwed together with immense
pressure makes 7,770 pieces. The
scientific miller says a grain of wheat
is finally cracked into 7,770 pieces
without being round at all. This is
the Hungarian process. The germ of a
kernel ot wheat is a waxy substance
not fit to eat. Between stones this
germ rinds into the flour and dam
ages it. By the new process of tho
Hungarian rollers this germ is flat
tened out and it is bolted out. How
ever, it is linnlly ground up with the

aud then continued ;
' There was the fortune. I figured
that 9,000,000 greased rags in use in
this country five months in the year.
Fifty thousand barrels of grease were
used up greasing spiders. Over a
hundred thousand dollars wasted and
gone. One turnip would make six
greasers; one thousand bushels would
make enough to supply the country.
All that was needed was to cut them
out in fancy style, affix a handle, and
co to supplviiis the demand at ten
cents each ."
" There was money in it."
'No, there wasn't. I bought a
hundred bushels of turnip, $5(5 worth
of wire, and hired two men to go to
work, and then I took a greaser and
went over into Vermont to see how It
would take. They wouldn't have it.

much cheaper.

Our readers will remember that
uimi months ntro Bob Cameron and
John J. Curry came into camp from a
prospecting trip, looking very ownsn
and exhibiting samples of rock from a
tremendous vein they had discovered.
Assays subsequently showed a value
of several cents a ton. From the ap
pearance of the samples it was sus
pected at the time that the boys had
located the levee at the north end ot
Oneida Lake; but wc Know now that
they aelualiy found something, and
are not surprised that they should
wear a puzzled a mystinu iook. urn

in Bodie, and tlie result is me snme
brass. It is proposed to form a com

of the jwrtics concerned remarked to
the Index man: " We've stuff enough

Washington", December 21. The
disgraceful sccno in the House this
afternoon is the absorbing topic of the
town talk lanljflit, and conjecture is
rife as to what will be its consequence
to-morrow. It Is agreed on all bands
that the principals m this most un
seemly atlair must be subjected to the
severe disipline of public reprimand
by the speaker of the iloiuc, and
compelled to apologize for their gross
ly unparliamentary language and con
duct, on penalty of expulsion in case
ot refusal. The excitement in the
Hall during the progress of tlie. alter
cation, aud for some minutes after its
termination, was intense almost be
yond description. When Sparks
roared out " loti are a scoundrel and
a villain!" in response to Weaver's
epithet ol ".Liar! ' Weaver rapidly
walked towards him, stripping oil' his
coat as he proceeded ; and Sparks, af
ter clutching a chair for a moment as
if to raise it for a weapon, commenced
to tako off his coat and moved to
wards his approaching adversary.
Numbers of their respective friends
hastened to seize and hold them back,
but Jones, of Texas, a Greenback sym
pathizer with Weaver, had meanwhile
jumped over his desk, exclaiming, "If
there s going to boa right, 1 m in it! "
Mills, of Texas, was observed to
plunge his hand into a hip pocket, as
if to draw a pistol. The members
gathered hastily to the point from all
points of the House, and ami 1 cries
of" order! " order! " " Scrgeaut-at-
Arms! nud all sortsof undisnnguish-
able utterances, the confusion mo
mentarily increased until it actually
looked as if a free-tight were immi
nent. Speaker Randall, very proper
ly disregarding the fact that the
House was in Committee ot the whole,
and that no motion to rise had been
made, hastily took the Chair, displac
ing the mild-mannered Chairman,
who was ineffectually trying to quell
the tumult, nud strongly pounding
with the gravel, commanded order,
and directed the Sergeant-at-Arms to
enforce it. This command proved
effective and the parliamentary forms
of coming out of Committee" of the
Whole were then promptly gone
through with and the House imme
diately adjourned until noon to-morrow.
It is proper to add that the sym
pathy of the House and the current of
popular feeling arc mainly with Wea
ver, as against Sparks, lor me latter
manifestly provoked the violent issue,
and egged Weaver into an outburst
very unnecessarily.

which would only be commensurate

resolution was read, declaring that for
