3 y r BIG GOLDJDEPOSiTS. Immense, Eich Tracts Located . in South Africa. Not Mere Travelers Tales but Government Iteports. $2,000,000 IN SIGHT. But That is Small When Spread Over the World. Washikgtok, June 30. Special. During these few hours of transitional in activity in conpresa I may bo permitted to turn to a subject which may be tho means of solving or simplifying tho financial problem. From an examinnitcn of recent consular reports I learn that South Africa really bids fair to be the real land of Ophir, and there Is excellent reason to expect that In the near future the world's balance of tho precious nieti.ls will be compelled to another readjustment by the magnitude of the gold added from tiiese South African fields. A Reliable II r port. A ltftlo over a year ao en American nininsr engineer, Mr. Hamilton Smith, was employed as an expert by tiie house of N. M. von Rcnhschild & Sons to report upon the real value of the tract near Jo h"iinesburfr, in which mining operations were already considerable, and ho estimat ed a total of about 51,044,900,000 in gold attainable in those workings, prosecuting them to no greater depth than S.000 feet. More thorough exploration by deep bor ings and the tc stins of new ledges have elnco then enabled a more exact and reli able report to be made by another eminent ruining espert, Ilcrr Schmeisser, who was employed by the German government to make it and tho results of whose re searches have just been printed in The Keichsanzei-jer (Imperial Advertiser). From this it appears that the total yield cf this tract, in which there are 69 mines, from the conimencoineiit of operations in lCt'3 tir.ril tho close of February, 1834, was 4. ''2 1.C.C7 ounces cf gold, of a valuo of $S2,C94,Ti;.'3.38. The rellnin;? Ix-in. im perfect, it comfiisnCs a price of but $17.14 per ounce. Until 1002 the cutput was Bffl'l comparatively, as the enterprises were then only fretting under way, but in that year 1,210,511 ounces of gold were obtained, ted in the yield was 1,478,- 473 ounces. Tho tsro months of 1804 re ported show el ill more rapid increase. January gave 1 10, S14 ounces and February 151,027 ounce:;, au avcragoof 5,100ouncc3 per diem as against the average of 4,050 ounces in 139o. It was expected that at this rate the output would by the month of August reach CD0, 000 ounces per month. The average cost of production has been at the rate of ?l. S3 per ton of conglomer ate treated, which would be covered by a gold content of 7.5 pennyweights per ton, while the actual content is from 11.23 to 2.65 pennyweights. Some mines under exceptionally favorable circumstances are reported as having afforded email profit upon ore yielding as low as five penny weights per ton, while others under po-. culiarly disadvantageous conditions have cost as much as 11.07 pennyweights per ton for extraction. Aariferotia Regions. The XVitwatcrsrand district, near Jo hannesburg, which in 1SC3 yielded 7S2,8S! ounces of the total output of 1,210,574 ounces, has a demonstratedly profitable working length of 10 miles, which it is estimated can be taken to a depth of 2,6:25 feet, 92,664,000 tons of ore, yielding an average of 13.50 penny weights of gold to the ton, amounting to 69,572,140.6 ounces, worth 11,020,828,355. If the workings can be profitably carried to a depth of 3,937 feet, the yield will be C9,S21,S9J ounces, of the value of $1,710, 606,000. The former amount would lo worked out, allowing for present rate of Increase continuing 10 years and the out put then becoming stationary, in 25 years from the commencement of 1S94, whilo the latter would all bo obtained, it is esti mated, in 40 years. But it must bo remembered that the Witwat. rsrand, which is all supposed to bo PuriferouM, is El) miles long, while the tract thus reported upon covers but 10 miles and does not includo even portions of that territory which might afford a prof itable, yield by more economical processes than now in vogue. And in addition to this there are authentic and reliable re portsof paying gold deposits at Kleeksdorp, 125 miles .southwest of Johannesburg; at Voyheid, 180 miles southeast cf Johan nesburg; at Ilavertsberg, in the Zout pansberg district; on the Duivel's Kan toor, on the top- of the mountains which Include the Do Kaap district to tho 6outh and cast, and in a number of other widely scattered places, the respective values of which are as yet only imperfectly deter mined. ... Cost of Mining-. Richer than any of these are 6aid to be the deposits in Mashonaland and Wata beleland as far north as the Zambezi river, a territory until recently closed to pros pectors, but sending out abundant evi dences of its wealth of gold. Indeed it Is known that the Portuguese, when they formerly en joyed great advantages a3 trad ers in this country, obtained large quan tities of gold from the natives north of the Zambezi river, whicli is 2,000 miles north of Cape Town. Scientific persons with an antiquarian cast of mind profess to iden tify lieira, on the east coast, as the land of Ophir, whence KiEg Solomon got his gold. In fact, all South Africa, with the possi ble exception of a patch here and there. Is believed to be auriferous, and now that American miners are going there in con siderable numbers and both English and German capijal is available in adequate quantity to "rush development the gold product here within tho next few years Will no doubt be enormous. In a limited portion of the territory good coal may be had in abundance lor use in mining and reduction works. Else where plants are already in process of con struction for the transformation of the wa ter power of streams into electric power to take the placo of ccal. Living, owing to difficulties of transportation and nonpro ductiveness of the country, is very expen sive as yet all through the South African goldfields. Wages are proportionately high, white miners receiving from $3.25 to 13.75 perdiera and blacks 50 to 75 cents. Tho acting American consular agent at Johannesburg, Mr. Charles V,"iiliams, re ported recently the total gold output of the Transvaal in 1893 as amounting to 1,610, 835 ounces 18 pennyweights and tho gold exports from Cape Colony and Natal in that 1 1 me as 1 , 551,544 ounces, valued at 5, -472,997. This year they will undoubtedly be ver much larg-or. He confirms the re ported richness of the gold deposits In the Mashonaand Matobele territories and also calls attention to the Alan ica country as ot great promise. He says that American miners are going to the Owailo river dig gings and to a reported rich alluvial gold field at the headwaters of the JLunde river. AS TO THAT GEE MAX TOTE Th GoTtrnor Is Mot A Tana to Going . . After It. There was a party a sort of semi political party last night at the home of Chief of Police Lindsey, which was attended by Gov. Lewelling, Auditor Prather and Attorney General Little of the state officers, several representatives of the German league, including 1L Von Lang-en and James Batsgen, a prominent member of the league from Atchison. The gentlemen drank beer together freely and the league representatives now have no doubt about the attitude of the administration on the liquor ques tion. One of the funny incidents connected with the evening, which indicates a change of sentiment amongst the Germans, occurred during the even ing. Some of the party were drinking soda pop with their beer by mixing the two liquids in their glasses when one of the prominent German leaguers said: "What! do you think a German would mix pop with his beer? No sir, we take it straight" "Oh yes," quickly responded IL Von Langeu wittily, the Germans will be very willing to take 'Pop' next November." Short talks were made on political sub jects and .Mr. Batsgen, the Atchison man, said that he had understood and always believed the state officers were a lot of cranks, but when he had the pleasure of meeting them and drinking beer with them he was satisfied that, tney were all right. It was late when the party broke up and every one left feeling that there were warm ties between the German league and the state administration. SAXTO WILlTwiTlI JOY. Grsmtlv nM"d VV i .-11 H Wt 8-l.tcted to AvQ(n Vaitlnt and lleurl. Paris. June Si '. Throughout the city and all over France, preparations are about completed to demonstrate tomor row the affection and the respect wh.ch the people of all classes had lor the late president. It is believed that the out pouring of the people, the decorations and the floral decorations which will be j seen tomorrow, when the remains of the late president are carried to the cathe dral of No. re D.une, and from there to the Pantheon, will be greater and more elaborate than have ever before been wit ness here. M. Dupuy, after consulting with his colleague, informed Casimir-Perier today that he had consented to remain pre mier. It is believed, however, that the cabinet will be reorganized M. Gorion, the chief of detectives, has resigned and his resignation is said to be due to the fact that he has been severely criticised for not keeping a better guard over the late president and for not hav ing obtained some trace of the auarchist conspiracy which resulted in the mur der of Carnot. A dispatch from Marseilles announces that a soldier detained in the military prison at that place, upon hearing of the assassination of the president gave the authorities full details concerning the plot which was hatched at l ette and also furnished the names of seven anarchists, who, after the executions of Vaillant aud Henri drew lots in order to decide which one of them was to kill Carnot. The lot fell to Santo. Santo is described as hav ing been "wild with joy," when he found that he had been selected to commit the murder. TILLMAN SURE TO WIN. Tho Ons-Eyed Man of Son: ti Carolina Will Baat Matter. Raleigh, S. C, June 30. It is admit ted by everybody that Governor 'iillman will be the next senator from South Car olina. An impartial observer, who has attended the joint debates between But ler and Tillman, has specially endeav ored to learn the views of the people where the speaking has occurred, and their opinion of the prospects of the two candidates. By catering to Populist principles and demands, Seuator Butler has failed to enlist the support of any considerable number of Tillman's followers, while he has alienated a largcf number of the conservative Democrats, the element he was supposed to be identified with and upon whose support it was understood at the outset he principally relied. The Democratic newspapers are very severe on Butler, many of them declar ing that, on account of his recent decla rations, they see no difference between him and Tillman. QUIT PAYING BLACKMAIL. ataamshlp C'ompitni-s Orrlvreit Not to Pa More 31ony To I'ol.ce m . u. New York, June 30. The police com missioners today instructed Superin tendent Byrnes to investigate the evidence produced by the Lexow committee against the members of the force. This action was taken after the announcement had been made that the Lexow committee would adjourn to Sept, 10L The steamship companies were today notified by the police department not to pay any more blackmail to policemen.

Jack son Long and his daughter, Miss Daisy Long, will be in charge. Mr. Long is the father of Frank Long, proprietor of the Commercial hotel. A man passing himself off as an agent for the American Bible society promised to get a cancer remedy that would be sure to cure for an iavalid widow in Martin & Dennis' addition. She gave him the $3, half of all the money she had and never heard again from him. He gave his name as Baker. A poor white woman from Parkdale with seven small cnildreu came to the police matron weeping recently because she had brought her cow up town and could not sell her for 18 enough to fin ish paying her husband's funeral ex penses. The matron told her she was glad she could not sell the cow, as her little folks needed her more than the- un dertaker needed his money. HEWS flAflSE The Coal Operators in Southeast Kansas Organize.

Men. at Wi.Int Tell Why Tbeir Lnadvr Linger About Topaka. Wichita June SO. The Coxey army boys who are in jail here tell a story about their lender, General Sanders, that is somewhat romantic, says the Kagle. When Sanders made a speech at Topeka after his arrest, among the spectators was a young and haudsotne widow whose name they thought was Mrs. Shaw. She became infatuated with the leader of the commonwe ;iers, and her first mission was to ascertain whether he was married. Finding that he was not she sought an introduction successfully. With ttie ice broken she plunged into his affections head over heeis aud ever since then Gen eral Saunders is mighty fond of remain ing around the state capital. It is understood, that the lady received a big insurance ' after ber husband's death besides inheriting from him some handsome property, and that it is her in tention of making a statesman and a man of power out of him. She is to furnish him the wherewithal to go about the state this fall making Pvpulist speeches, and so that nothing might go amiss, she will accompany him. Indeed, it is said that the reward for his campaign speeches will be the posi tion of adjutant general, in the eveut of the re-election of Governor Lewellinir." It is said that .sirs. Shaw's ambition is to be the wife of a military hero and that she is willing to spend the value of the insurance policy of her late husband to attain it. TO ENFORCE LIQUOR tATFS.
