I For hundreds of years the cold mm silver
mines of old Mexico hnve boon worked nt grcot

and richest of tlieeo nilnos havo boon lost or
were nbnndonod by tho Moxlenns or Indians
on aocount of the frociuont raids of tho
Apaches. Bo many yours often olnpsod beforo
they wero ngnln sought for that nil trace of
them was oblltoratod olthor by earthquakes,
. cloud bursts, or some other cause in nuturo.
"; This opplloB to Arizona also, which was then n
' part of Mexico. Mexican history rolntcs that
oyer 100 yoars ago two deserters from tho
army, upon bolng followed and brought back
to the company, presented tholr Captnln with
very large pleco of solid sliver, found by
them In tho mountains. Ho relleod them
t from all punishment upon their showing him
j the plaoe where it wan found. Tho outlro
company was set to work dlgglngnntivo sllvor.
wbloh was found In pIocob varying In weight
t" t from 2X pounds to 110 pounds. As usual, tho
" f Anaohes pounced down upon them and hlllod
M noarly all In 1810 tho placo was again
(l searched for. and. although tho records of tho
V Government wore as proclso as possible ns to
location. It has novcr yet boon found. Tho
location, as near ns can bo mndo out from tho
records. Is near tho prosont lino of Arizona,
nd near the location of tho now famous St.
Patrick and Ban Francisco mines.
Anothor famous mlno, tho Tumaccacorl.
whloh the records of tho Church show pro
dnoed millions In silver bullion, has nover yet
been found, although tho search has boon
almost steadily kept up for fifty yoars past
The ore was brought from the mine by the
friendly Indians, who were omptoyed by the
Jesuit fathers, to the Tumaccaoorl mission,
in the Santa Cruz valley, whoro it was rudoly
workod. The Apaches wore very troublesome,
and upon several occasions had murdered the
entire forco at tho mine. Orders woro given
by the fathers to All up the shaft ten foot bo
low the surface. This was done by placing
logs at that dlstanco bolow too surfaco and
" filling up with dirt This mlno. which tho
Cburehreoords show was yielding native silver

to $5,000 per ton. has been searched for and

Old Mexico contains an endless number of
these lost mines. They will. In all probability,
be unearthed at somo not far distant day, as
this country is Oiling up rapidly with prospec

The number of rich mines discovered by
pnre accident are as numerous as tbo rloh
V mines that have gone astray. Tho tJllver King
mine In PJnal oounty, Ariz., was discovered by
W a United States soldlor carrying the mall, who
casually romarked whon a very rich niece of
f ore was shown to him by a friend: Why, I
know where there's a whole hill of that stuff."
He bad really , been riding over a trail for
mouths, carrying the mall book and forth
f from the cost, that was underlaid with the
rlohest of silver ore. Ten millions of dollars
have already been taken from tho Silver King.
The Ban Francisco mine In Pima county was
discovered by a Mexican vnquorro. who was

horse stumbling, and In dismounting to pick It
up he notleed that the ploco of rock upon
which his horse had stumblod was highly col
ored, and upon Inspection found It covered
with silver. It Is now one of the richest silver
mines In Pima county. The Bt. Patrick mine,
H j near the Ban Francisco mine, was discovered
SJ by an old Montana prospector, who. seeing a
' ' small piece of rock sticking out of tho ground,
struck It with a piok that ho had with him. Tho
rook gave a ringing sound, and be exclaimed:
"By Bt. Patrick. I've got It at last I" Three
months later he sold It to the present owners
for a fortune.
I have known of a rich mine being discov

f looted all his lite with no good result, who had
aken refuge under a tree during a storm, and
While ploklng around tho ground waiting for

HIDDEN WEAL H IN NEW JERSEY.
Belyidede. N. J., Nov. 30. Tho exlstonce of
ores In noithern Now Jersey has beon known
for years. The famous Frankllnlto zino mines
In Sussex county have been operated lor yoars
and have made big fortunes for several cor
porations. But only now is the fact cropping
.. out that Warron county Is rich In valuable
I ; minerals. There aro not only tracos of cold and
I sliver, but there aro aoros upon acres of splen-
W did zinc. Iron, and bessemor ore. Quito re
cently one of tho btnto's exports has unearthed
some remarkably valuablo minorata.
It was tho late Prof. Georco 11. Cook, tho New
Jersey State Uoologlst, who not eloped tho
mineral resources and possibilities of theso
northern counties. The Professor uneattbed
tue oros and analyzed them In his laboratory.
He was making geological sun era. and not

one who had read his reports came- to him for
iurther Information, ho gavo his visitor all he

It was in thlB way that a fow of the farmers
In warron county loarnod that thore weie v elns

" Could n Catholic Iw oloctcd President ?"
was tho question Dr. McGlynu nsked nnd dis
cussed In Cooper Union last night.
It wns his opinion that tho nomination of a
Cathollo for President meant defeat for tho
candidate. It was because of a certain frenzy
that the people had against electing a Presi
dent who would publicly declaie his bollof In
tbo ltoman Cathollo Church, lhe an
tipathy to tho Catholics, ho said, was un
generous, and entirely at varlame with
the Constitution of tho Unltod Stntos.
But as Daniel Dougherty had said, thoro was
somo law, which, though unwritten, was as
binding as It composing a part of tho Constitu
tion, that mndo the election of a Cathollo an
impossibility under tho prosont statn of things.
If It was possible for a Cathollo to bo elected,
ho would, In tho opinion ot Dr. McUlynn. bo
one whom tho Fopo had was hid his hands
of. Any othor would miserably tail. Tho
prejudice of tho people was not so much
ngnlnst tho Catholic rollglon as against tho eo
cleslastlo m.ithlne. It was tue projudlco
against Popery that tho pooplo folt. and they
held Foperr up to thelrtchildren as a bugbear.
