Sylvester's KeiuarUs. Captains Heffner and Cross were present at the opening. In a brief address to the men he said the ceremonies incident to the optning of the station had been delayed in order to give the contractor time to finish the outside work. "I desire to congratulate the men who have been assigned to this precinct," said the major, "on your excellent quarters, and regret very much that your colleagues in other sections of the city are not so well provided for, but I hope in the near future there will be something accomplished for the others which will make them more comfortable." Lieutenant Kenny called the roll and as signed the men to their respective beats, and Informed them when they will go on duty. Sergeant Bremerman took out the first section of footmen, while mounted Sergeant Slattery had charge of the mount ed men, who went on duty at the conclu sion of roll call.

New Station Conveniences. The new station Is a decided Improve ment on the older buildings of the depart ment. It contains many additional con veniences. It embodies the Ideas furnished the architect by Major Sylvester, and the officers who will do duty there will enjoy comforts not provided in the other sta tions.

The roadway about the structure has not been com pleted, but the patrol wagon was put into service today when the men went on duty. Lieutenant Jordan's Address. Lieut. W. W. Jordan, who took charge of the eighth precinct, is by no means a stranger to the members of his command, he having served in the capacity of pri vate, sergeant and night inspector with them. Although he received his promotion some weeks ago, he has not been perma Lteut. W. W. Jordan. nently In command of a precinct until today. He has an excellent army record and his efficiency rating in the department la second to none. By his fair manner in dealing with the men he has won their esteem and confidence, and the depart ment officials are satisfied he will have the unqualified support of his command. In taking charge of the precinct he addressed those who were in the station, including many members who had not been required to report. He said: "The Commissioners and superintendent of this department have assigned the com mand of this precinct to me, and In as suming the same I desire to say that I propose to discharge the duties of the po sition in the same manner I have those of the other places I have held in this de partment?that is, on business lines. I-do not expect impossibilities; I simply ask that you give me your earnest co-opera tion in conducting the affairs of the Pfe* cinct in such a manner as to meet with the approval of our superior officers and the citizens we are employed to protect in their property and personal rights. "To succeed, we must be harmonious in our relations, as that is one of the most essential things in an organization of this kind. Bickering, backbiting and tale-bear ing will not be permitted. All I ask is that you meet me half way, and, I assure you, I will do the rest. "The Commissioners of the District ot Columbia and the superintendent of this department have secured from Congress a substantial increase of the force, and-the residents of this District naturally expect more efficient police service, and we must do our best to protcct the department from the crticisms which will undoubtedly fol low a failure on our part to afford the protection they have a right to expect."

District'* Right to Maintain Sewer. Andrew B. Duvall, the attorney for the District, today forwarded to the Commis sioners his opinion upon the communication of the Merchants' Transfer and Storage Company stating that in excavating for the foundation of its buildings on E street be tween 9th and 10th streets a sewer has been uncovered running through the prop erty. The matter was referred to the at torney for his opinion as to the right of the District to maintain this sewer. With reference to that question the attorney says: "It appears from the report of the super intendent of sewers that this sewer was constructed in 1872 and was built along the line of a natural water course, and drains a considerable area north of square 378, as well as a larger portion of said square. "I am of the opinion that the District has the right to maintain this sewer, and the grant of an easement therefor would be presumed after the lapse of such a pe riod of time accompanied with uninterrupt ed use as in this case."

Bell Telephone No. 100, ALEXANDRIA, Va.. August 20, 1901. Mayor Simpson heard a complaint today against Benedict Walsh, who has been con [ ducting a saloon at No. 1321 King street for Borne time past. Officers Arthur Davis and Travers arrested Walsh last night on com | plaint of his wife, who charged him with having sold out the stock and fixtures of : ths saloon and refusing to divide the pro ceeds of the sale with her. She further told the officers that she had taken her husband's watch and ring and he had threatened to shoot her when she refused to give them up. Walsh deposited $114 at police headquarters for his appearance in oourt, but when his name was called he was not present. He was represented by Attorney S. Q. Brent. His wife claimed that he had failed to provide for her for the past week, and had sold out his busi ness, agreeing to give her one-half of what he received. He had failed to do so and she had requested his arrest. Mayor Simp son decided that his court had no aujiority in the premises, and the charge of threat ening with a revolver not having been sus tained he dismissed the case and ordered that Walsh's money be returned to him after deducting $55 due the corporation for liquor license.

Commissioners Assured It Will Hence forth Be Properly Conducted. M. M. Parker, president of the Washing ton Fertilizer Company, has reported to the Commissioners regarding the recent delay In the garbage collection, which has caused many vigorous protests to be filed at the District building by residents of the city. Mr. Parker states that the delay was caused wholly by the smashing of one of the company's cars while en route from the city to the crematory over the Penn sylvania railroad. As soon as the acci dent occurred the company ordered a new car from the Detroit sanitary works, and pending its arrival efforts were made to provide river transportation. A scow was secured, but Mr. Parker stated In his communication to the Commissioners of yesterday that the work of transporting the garbage was going rapidly forward, and he thought It would be unnecessary to use the scow. Over sixty tons of garbage were collected Sunday, and he predicted that by last night the company would have entirely caught up with its work. The great in crease In the amount of garbage caused by melon rinds and green corn husks and cobs also contributed to the delay. Judge O'Donnell today In the Police Court sent Charles Burke, colored, to jail for thirty days for striking Nellie Tlbbs. also colored, with his fist. Never Imitated nra Quality.

Tbe Copete Mining Company owns all the stock of the Melcser Mining Company. comprising th? fainout) Copete group of mines nt El Copete, Carbo, Sonora. Mexico. Tbe group consists of El Copete, San Miguel, Jalisco, Santiago, Copperoslty and Good Hope, and the recently purchased Copetlto ?ud Last Chance, In all one hundsed eighty pertenenclas, or about four hundred fifty acres. A smelter has been erected and is now running successfully and profitably, smelting one hundred forty tons of ore a day. The mines have an apparently inexhaustible ore supply. If the ore bodies have rny limit it will be for some other generation thaw ours to find It. Tb furnish funds to build a railroad. Increase the smelting capacity and make other Improvements, alxty thousand shares of stock hare been contributed to the Treasury and are offered for sale on Treasury account. The following statements?referring to the Oo|>ete mines?from Professor George A. Treadwell, the celebrated metallurgist; Professor Robert T. 11111 of the United States Geological Survey; Mr. William Melczer and Mr. James J. Hardwick, speak for themselves. . September 20. 1800. The Copete mines are distinguished for two things: 1. The high-grade copper ores, running from 8 per cent up, averaging more than 10 per cent. 2. The lante amount of gold contained In the ores, running from one-half ounce to four ounces t* the ton and averaging something more than an ounce. In these two respects there is do other property in tbe world that compares with this. GEORGE A. TREADWEIA. October 16. 1900. I have seen many mines in my life, bnt never one which showed such rich and satisfactory de posits of ore. ROBERT T. HILL. July 30. 1901. By the addition of another smelter, the Installation of roasting furnaces to roast our gold-copper> bearing sulphides, and the completion of the railroad, our dally capacity should be at least 400 tons, yielding a gross product a day of $11,700 From this will have to he deducted In round figures: Mining $.V?) developing and Timbering 200 Smelting 800 General Expenses 350 Making a total of $1,850 1.850 As net profits this would leave $9,850 From this I would suggest to deduct 10 per cent for reserve and 21* per cent for contingent fund, which will amount to $1,231, leaving net available for dlvl lends, $8.(121. Assuming that w? will average twenty-eight days per month running time, this will average for dividend purines $241,388 i>er month. With the increase of smelting caj?acity the net Increase available for dividends will more than correspondingly increase, from the fact that the total expense account will be materially diminished per ton of ore smelted, and when 1,000-ton daily capacity is attained and converters installed tbe monthly amount for dividend purposes will exceed $750,000. This would mean nine million dollars per annum for dividends. It would be prudent to make the reserve 15 per cent the first year at least. I see my way clear to begin paying dividends within ninety days from the completion of railroad and the nesting furnaces and the additional stack of at least twenty cents per share monthly, which I hope to sec increased five-fold in lest, than thirty-six months from the date dividend No. 1 is paid. WILLIAM MELCZER. I think Mr. Melcxer's estimates are very conservative, dividends than he claims for it. August 5, 1901. believe that Cojtete can )>av liettef GEORGE A TREADWEIX. July 9. 1901. I feel eonfllent that with better redaction works and machinery on the mine, together with better freighting facilities, Copete will not be behind any other camp In the Southwest in the production of copper and gold.
