A Vast Increase Anticipated In Production of Gold and Copper. the The past year for the mineral in dustry of Arizona has been of pros perity far ahead of anything known in the ten years preceding. Silver, it is true, is ibeing produced in diminishing quantities, but gold and copper are coming forward in even greater ratio to "take the place of the white metal in the annual reports. As near as can be estimated at this date the mineral product of Arizona for the year 1895 was as follows: Gold, $6,200,000. Silver, 375,000 ounces. 'Lead, 400,000 pounds. Copper, 60,000,000 pounds. The gold product is several millions in excess of last year. It has come from a very multitude of sources. The stamp mills have ground it out of the oxide ores, and have concentrated it from the sulphurets; it . has been gleaned by the p-lacer miner from the creek beds and precipitated from old tailings in cyanide vats; it has been found in copper ores of Jerome and ihas been extracted from rebellious ores shipped to Colorado and eastern smelt ers. The gain in gold ihas principally been from the pyritie ledges of Yava pai county, now being explored in all energy and with aill success. The silver, and tine quantity is about the lowest ever noted for ai year's run, has mainly been obtained by the re duction of gold ores in combination. Several silver mines, however, have been lately awakening and '96 will doubtless see a production of over a million in silver. In copper there has been a rise from the product of '94. In '94 as well as in the greater portion of "95, the Old Do minion -works at Globe had been closed down. To '95 they have contributed not over a million pounds in '96 they may be expected to produce ait least 15,000,000 pounds, .what between the three large furnaces of the Old Do minion company and the plants of the Phelps-Dodge mines that will soon be at work.

The De troit Copper company's works at Mo renci are now being practically doubled in capacity and have very mountains of rich ore upon which 'to work.

Two pas senger trains collided at 7:30 tonight no the Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern railroad, fourteen miles from this city. They were the Louisville express, which left this city at 7:05 p. m. and ithe St. Louis accommodation, due here at 7:05. The latter was an hour late. There were two killed and six in jured. Both engines were totally wrecked. The combination car of the Louisville express and the express car on the train from St. Louis were tele scoped. The dead are Fireman Wil60n of the Louisville express, and an un known man, burned under the wreck. The cause of the accident was the failure of the operator at Storrs sta tion, within the city limits to report to the Louisville train an order to wait at Delhi and let the St. Louis train pass it. . MYSTERIOUS INSURGENTS. Spanish Authorities Don't Seem to (Wnow Where They're At. (HAVANA, Dec 31. There is still much uncertainty regarding the move ments of the insurgents. According to official reports they are in full re treat, but it has been intimated Gomez .was making for 'Cienfuegos, with ithe intention of capturing that seaport. An announcement made today would however seem to show that Gomez is in the vicinity of. Jaggney Grande, south of Colon in the same province. A most uneasy feeling prevails, and it is believed that serious fighting has taken place near Caliente and that the meager facts .made public do not begin to tell the tale. HOTEL ARRIVALS.

Preparing Abroad to Gather In the Promised Issue of Bonds. 1 WASHINGTON, Dec. 3L In the senate today Senator Perkins of Cali fornia asked unanimous consent for the consideration of a resolution di recting the committee on finance to report an amendment to the house tariff bill laying an additional duty on raw sugar equal to other increases of the bill. Senator Chandler's resolution di recting the committee on naval affairs to investigate the prices paid iby the government for armor plate and whether any officer of the government was interested in the patent process, was adopted. ; In a speech Senator Mitchell of Ore gon declared that no industry had re ceived such a staggering and deadly legislative blow as that inflicted upon the wool industry by the Wilson tar iff act. It drained from the United States within the last year $85,000,000 in gold to pay for foreign wool and oc casioned a loss to the wool growers of this country of more than $100,000,000. Unless this legislation was changed, the sheep industry of the Pacific coast would be annihilated. Mitchell re ferred to the condition of the treasury and the president's appeal, and added: "While providing at the earliest pos sible moment for legislation which will produce a sufficient revenue to relieve :he administration of its pres ent embarrassment, other important questions should not be lost sight of in the performance of our patriotic re sponse to the president and we should legislate so as to reprieve from the danger of desfrrciion one of the greatest ir.dust -iricken doJVii by the Wilson, tariff act." Mitchell said the tariff bill passed by the house would probably increase the revenue $40,000,000 a year. Amended as it should be by affording wool, lumber, barley, hops and other agricultural products adequate protection it will give an additional revenue of $50,000, 000 and place a padlock upon the so called endless chain by which gold is drained from the treasury, stop a" necessity for a further issue of bonds and rescue from impending ruin the wool and other agricultural interests of the country. Senator Sherman introduced the fol lowing resolution; "That by injurious legislation by the Fifty-third congress the revenues of the government were reduced below its necessary expenditures and funds created by law for the redemption of United States nates have been invaded to supply such deficiency of said re serve; that such misapplication of the resumption fund is of doubtful legality and greatly injurious to the public credit and should be prevented by re storing said fund to not less than $100,000,000 In gold coin or bullion, to be paid out only in the redemption of United States notes and treasury notes, and such notes when redeemed, to be reissued only in exchange for gold coin or bullion." ' IN THE HOUSE. A Formal Meeting and Then Adjourn ment. WASHINGTON, Dec. 31. The last session of the house for the year 1895 was purely a formal meeting lasting but a few minutes. Chaplain Couden in the prayer asked that party conten tions might be buried that the Nation might advance with the motto, "One Flag, One Country, One God Forever," and concluded: "With malice toward none, with charity for all, let our Na tion stand as an example to the world with justice written on her brow." At 12:15 the house adjourned until Friday. THE BOND ISSUE. Syndicate Bankers Preparing er It In. to Gath- NEW YORK, Dec. 31 The Evening Post in the last edition says a contract was signed 'this morning by all mem bers of the new bond syndicate, sub ject to formal acceptance by the gov ernment. The syndicate agrees to fur nish eleven and one-half million ounces of gold, amounting to about $200,000,000 in gold, the government to take half this sum first and to have the option of taking the other part and deliver four per cent, thirty year coin bonds at about the same price as paid for the last issue of bonds, the managers of the syndicate to receive a commission of one per cent. The price at which the last bonds were taken was 104.49, at which they yielded 3 per cent interest. Congress and the Tariff. , BLIZZARDS IN THE EAST. Arizona Is Not Alone in Her Cold Weather.

Albuquerque Citizen: "I know now why the Father has kept me here so long," said Francis Schlatter to three wise men from the east, who had sought and found him Christmas day in the house of a Mexican two mile:; west of Cabezon. "Now I may pro ceed on my way as He wills," added the mysterious -personage. Francis Schlatter was seated before an open fire reading a well worn copy of the -Bible,- as the three gentlemen invaded the lowly premises. He had on a sweater and a pair if overalls and a canvas coat, rne scene was some what emblematical of the Biblical story of the wise men. These, too, had brought gold, if frankincense and myrrh, but goodly sized purse was refused by ' Healer, who said: "I have enough, (Father provides for me." The three wise men in this instance are E. P. Houston, of Evansville, Ind., receiver and general auditor of the Peoria, Decatur & Evansville railroad: J. Wm. Snyder, a banker wlH resides at Paris, 111., and L. H.

"We left Albuquerque with a four horse outfit the day before Christmas, provisioned for a Ions' search. The rig was from Johnston's livery stable, and Morton was the driyer. We styled him 'Governor - Morton.' That night we stopped at the' Zia' Indian pueblo and were well treated by those good Indians. They did not know where the Healer was, and sent a courier out in search of him. They -had a picture of Schlatter .which they got in Albu querque and no money could buy it. In the morning the Indian messenger returned with the information that 'the Healer had been seen going in the di rection of Cabezon. We made an early start and reached Cabezon at 3 o'clock in ithe afternoon where we learned that Schalatter was stopping at a Mexican settlement itwo mile3 west of there. We went on without stopping and finally found him sitting by a fire in a Mexican house reading a Bible. Schlatter received us and said he knew now why the Father had kept him so long before proceeding on his journey. He gave us an hour and a. half of his time, and we are very well satisfied for having made the trip. If there is a saint on earth, he is one."
