NEWS IN A NUTSHELL. Happenings of Streets and Town. The Doings of a Day In Phoenix and Its Tributary Region. The fact that Soulth African, Eng lish, French and Belgian syndicates have all inade large purchases of mines In California in the last few months has greatly stimulated the interest in prospecting and development on what Is known as the "Mother Lode" of the Sierra Nevada mountains. This lode has already yielded millions and is the source of the largest "bullion pro ducers today. The South African syn dicate, represented by Thomas Mein, and the French syndicate, headed by Count Ponlatowski, are preparing to do extensive development work, and utilize new elecforic plants in reducing ore. The mew placer diggings on the Mojave desert are also attracting much attention. , The entire crop of English walnuts held toy the Wa.rn.ut Growers' associa tion at Santa Barbara has been sold to a Chicago firm alt a trifle less than last year's prices. The association held a'bout half the county crop. The mar ket for walnuts has been injured by the financial stringency. Twelve acres of tobacco planted in El Cajon valley, San iDiego county, have not only yielded one fine crop, but a second volunteer crop is rapidly maturing. If the curamg proves suc cessful another profitable industry will be added to southern California's list Miners returned from the Yukon who reached Seattle this week give bet ter reports of their work above Circle City than the prospectors ' who have drifted back from Forty-Mile creek. Among the 155 miners from Circle City a number cleaned up good sums, in several cases reaching $10,000. One man bought a claim for $900, and by working eight men in might and day Shifts, took out $24,000. It is estimated that S00 miners wilL winter at Circle City. NOTES OF EIVERTOAY LIFE.

The couple will live on their ranch east of the city. ' The number of registered voters of the county according to the returns received at the recorder's office is 4,385. There are yet a few registering officers to bear from. The total num ber of voters will probably reach about -4,500, a slight gain over 1894. A letter was received at the sheriff's -office yesterday morning from Mr. Perry Williams of Maricopa, stating that am Indian bad brought him a small satchel containing a pair of bi cycle shoes and a complete outfit of bicycle tools. Any person who has lost uch a thing will be able to regain it Toy writing Mr. Williams. Governor Franklin yesterday com missioned L. Salter of Mesa and C.

' The title of the suit is Jesus Diaz and Selzo Gradlllos vs. Redmond Toohey. Edwin Forrest et ai. iA lady -who was looking about in a bric-a-brac shop with a view to pur chasing something odd noticed a quaint figure, the head and shoulders of which appeared above the counter. "What 'that Japanese idol over there worth'-" she inquired. The salesman replied, in a subdued tone: "Worth about 10,000 ma'am; it is the pro prietor." Tid-Bits. v '. .A san Francisco theater manager who had advertised tor the homeliest man in the city received 100 answers. An Englishman, now in Washing ton, tells "The (Washington Post" that bicycling is evens more prevalent in that country Ithan in this. "To get possession of the coveted wheel," he says, "our young women have been known .to make uncommon sacrifices. The daughter of a clergyman, a very intelligent and popular young girl quite a belle in a highly respectable set, hired out as a waiting maid in a part of the city remote from her home, and by saving her small earnings managed to buy a machine. By the merest accident her identity was dis covered, and the story was made pub lic, but the young lady did not lose caste by the expose, and her friends complimented her on her pluck." PERSONAL MENTION. T.-.D. Murphy of Harq.ua Hala is in .the city. 'V'i"?; Sol Levi returned yesterday from a trip in the northern part of the terri tory. .. ; .. . Mrs. Habtde Goodwin -and Miss Min aiie Goodwin.of Tempe were in the city .yesterday. . Dr. J. M. Ford returned yesterday afternoon from a visit of several weeks in the least. E. F. Kellner and wife left Thursday night for Globe, -where they -will re main for some time. Robert Goodwin and George Marts have returned from a visit of several monlths in Old Mexico. A. A.

John McNaugihton, the cartoonist, has returned from a summer passed in Ithe skylight city of Arizona, Flags He made the trip by saddlehorse. He expects to resume his position as art ist for The Raata. George M. Sargent, general passen .eer and ifrefehlS agent of the S. F., P. & P. railroad, has returned from the east .where he has been visiting with his family for a few weeks. One of Ithe richest men dn Mexico is Maximilian Demm, a German by birth. He lives in an old monastery in Du rango, and enjoys an Income of nearly $700,000 a year from his silver mine, El Promontario. He began life in Mexico as a clerk. Finally he went into business for himself, and while he was visiting in Germany his manager took what was supposed to be a worth less mine for a bad debt. It is this mine from which he is now deriving his great income. Last week Fresno, in the heart of ithe great raisin district of the San Joaquin vaiiey, icaiiiornaa, celebrated the ar rival of the first train over the new Valley road from Stockton. This road was built .largely through conltribu tions (by Olaus Spredkels, who believed that a competing line through this rich valley would pay, and would also serve as the terminus of a through overland line. The San Joaquin valley is only sparsely settled, and if the new railroad1 encourages more farmers and fruit growers to develop .land, it will ac complish greait good. CAUGHT ON THE FLY. tandpoint of commercial value. Ex- ceDting the hippopotami and double- horned rhinoceros, Mr. Conklin offers to reproduce Central Park's property for $10,000. The four hippopotami, however, are worth $20,000 and the rhinoceros is cheap at $5,000. . Police Commissioner "Teddv" RooBe- velt of New York, he of civil Bervice commission fame, was late in reaching ib office the other morning. He said that he had stopped to register before coming down town. VVhst district are yon id, Mr. Roose velt?" asked a Mail and Expreta reporter. Why, 11 I'll oe switched if 1 can remember," stammered the commit sioner. You Jon't know in what district yon live?" - , '. Well, I kBowl of course," laughed the commissioner, " but I can't for the ife of me remember it." You Uced to represent the Twsntv- ninth when yon were in the assemblv," suggested Col, Grant, who wad present and vastly amused. Of course, oi coarse. That's it, you know." Then there was a long pause. Finally Mr. Roosevelt said: "Well th'ere is one thing! do know I know the nQtnber of my bouse." If people who follow 'brands' and makers' names knew of half the swin dles perpetrated with labels they'd be astonished," said a celebrated .hnglieb wine merchant to the writer a few days ago. "Why, I know a man, a former engraver, who can forge the brand of anv wine in existence. This is his sole occupation and workiDg in league with bim are a clique of rogues who buy up quantities of empty wine and cham pagne bottles fi om hotels and restaur ants Some of this gang have been wine merchants' assistants and understand bottling, and they fill ihe bottles with I a low-priced fcnt drinkable port, claret, champagne, etc., and affix cleverly forged labels nf the most expensive brands, bearing the names of foreign growers. - iNot only are the bottles peculiar to each grower used, bat they even procure the proper gold and silver foil from France, and as to corks, they know where to find a cork cutter to the trade, who will supply aSr shape and kind re quired. Seals are easily imitated by taking an impression, and cutting cob webs on port wine bottles is an old dodge. They plant these spurious wines at certain restaurants and clubs, the wine-buyer 'standing in.' I know more than one high-class restaurant where these imitations are constantly sold to people diniag there as genuine brands. So perfect are the forged labels that a military officer actually paid these sharpers over $500 tor the Madeira worth about $50, which they advertised aB dating from the battle of Waterloo. "A very well-known nobleman, too, was victimized over some pretended wine to the tune of $1,000, and I could give you the name of a big firm of wine merchants swindled for nearly $15,000 (a few bottle of genuine wine being pro cured and opened for the men to taste) and dared tot prosecute, for it would simply have ruined their business were it to become known that they had had hundreds of falsely labeled wines in their cellars, some of whjh they had even resold to tbeir customers."

If you are thinking of going into th menagerie business you must take into consideration the fact that the yearly cost of maintaining a menagerie is near ly equal to the value of the show. A good menagerie does not cost a great sum, but it is an expeisiva luxury. The menagerie in C antral Park. New York, co6ts the city 830.000 per year for maintenance. In order to arrive at the market value of the animals owned bv the city. I called recently on Willism A. Conk ing, the old showman and ani mal dealer, who was at one time the head of the Park menagerie. Mr. Conk lin whs brought no on a sea cow's milk. and he deals in and knows the market value of everything in the business. from a New Jersey 'coon to the masto don of prehistoric time. Incidentally, Mr. Conklin is superintending Ihe can ary bird and png dog department of a big store, but be has a menagerie of hie own in Fourteenth street, to which the countryman and Bmall boy are enticed by a picture of the "African lion slay er," representing a monkey seven feet high, wearing nothing but, an anery ex pression and carrvine in his haDd a mohoganv tree, which he has just pulled up by the roots.
