EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL.
SUNDAY. DECEMBER 16, 1877. •ob bvium rmmmvcT. The statement of the amount of bul lion produced la Eoreka District, for the last year, published la yesterday morning's SxjmxxL, la a most grati fying exhibit of our resources, and one that places us on the record as the sec ond In rank on this coast. The figures really represent about a sla-mouthe’ yield. Fall half of tba year, two of our bullion-producing mines war# tied up In a vexatious lawsuit, and during ha pendancy all operations ceased. The monthly yield of the mines of Eu reka District, at tba present time, will aggregate over $700 OCO, end they have by no means rcaebed their limit. Soma of tba bast properties are idle or elah work la being dona to open tba tftloaa for spring work. The Atlas mine, one of tba bast on the lode, is tied np by a lawauit, and nothing will ha dona with it until the case, now be fore the Supreme Court for a hearing, Is decided. Tbe Hamburg will wheel into line next spring, as will also tba Jackson, Bald Eagle, and other prop erties on tbe lode. The ore bodies in tbe Eureka Consolidated, Richmond and K K Consolidated show uo signs of diminution, and there is plenty of ore In slgbt to produce tbe same quan tity as at present for the next twelve months. In our table, tbe antouot set down aa line bullion was $014,670 Cl, nearly ell produced from the Richmond refin ery, aed was shipped through Wells. FWrgo A Co’s agency. Tbe balance went forward aa ordinary freight in tbe shape of baae bullion. Tbe bulk of it was sent to New York, where it Was refined, and returns made to tbe company's office in S»n Francisco. In the light of tbs present outlook, Eu reka district will add at least $10,000, 000 to the wealth of the world in the year 1878. FARLEY T* BE SENATOR. At a lata hour laat night, we received the following dispatch from San Fran cisco, which, in all probability, settles tbs question of tbs California Senator •blp: SAN Francisco, Dec. 15. *fo the Skntinrl: Mr. Farley will be nominated on the second ballot on Monday night. It Is conceded that Mr. Ryland la to be the next Govern or, and Mr. Mcbonald is content to wait for Mr. Booth’s placa. Thr pressure upon Turkey's re eon roes, for men to meet the Russian boots, must be very great. Some time ago Egypt was oalled upon to furnl»li bar contingent for the service of her suzerain, tbs Sultan, and answered it by forwarding men and ships. Now, Another call is reported, and this time Egypt furnishes 12,000 infantry, 1,000 cavalry and four battalions of artillery. Tbeao troops may answer very well to garrison forts and towns; perhaps, to defend them; but if one may judge of their reliability, as warriors, by the evidences given in tbelr contests against tbs Abysainiane, they would make bnt poor ZMterial for operations in the Held against the Russian troops. Portland Oregonian: Joseph tells General Milas that lbs trouble began with tbs death of a dear friend of his by the band of a whits man, which no donbt is true. This is a reference to tbs Indian who was killed in Wallowa Valley soma time since, which was a grant wrong, and never was punished.

THE CHINESE QUESTION. Our Mexican delations. BLAND’S SILVER BILL. A M»w of VaiM ■ la tea Benda from Bnrepe. Washington, Dec. 14. The Way* and Means Committee, thin morning, decided to recommend the adoption by the House of Glover’s resolution giving Standing Committees authority to make such investigations as they may deem proper, in regard to the administration <>f public affairs by all branches and officers of the Execu - tlve Department. For this purpose it is proposed that the following named committees shall have full power to take testimony and send for persons and papers intbelr own discretion: In dian Affairs, Military Affairs, Public Lauds. Public Buildings and Grounds, and lbs various Committees on Expen ditures in the Department of Justice and State, War, Navy and Interior Departments, and a similar Committee on Expenditures for Public Buildings. The favorable report on the resolution was ordered by a strict party vote. Tbe Chinese question was the lead ing topic of attention to day at the meeting of the Cabinet. Tiie recent reports to the President from San Fran cisco, in addition to several papers on this subject brought to bis attention at various times, was laid before the couucil and made the matter of very earnest consideration. It was ex plained at the meeting that the report from tiie six companies was an exag gerated statement of the disorder that occurred, but the President has been advised from several sources of a con dition of affairs which may evenluale in serious troubles. The feeling is, therefore, entertained bj tbe President and members of the Cabinet that the necessity exists for taking a careful view of tbe situation; hence tbe rather prolonged discussion to day. No con clusion was reached, and the consid eration of the subject will be contin ued at a future meeting. Tbe Cabinet members of the Government are not nninindful of tbe ability of tbe proper civil authority in San Francisco to prevent outrages of the kind alleged to have been perpetrated, hut it may be requisite to give assistance if re quested, in which case tbe Naval force on tbe Pacific would in all probability be directed to so strengthen tbe local authorities as to prevent the occur rence of any serious trouble. The auestion of treaty relations between te two countries was considered. Tbe views of some memtiers of tbe Cab inet seem to be that some modification might be made In order to limit the importation of Chinese. It is not un likely that the President will at tbe same time make tbe Chinese question the subject of a special message to one or both Houses. The Cabinet also gave attention to our Mexican relation*. The question of recognizing the Diaz Government will very soon be formally auted upon, as the Administration inclines lo the opinion that it is necessary and proper to approach this question with but little further delay, and reach some decision concerning it. Mr. Dodge’s nomination as Mint Su perintendent at San Francisco was unanimously confirmed, without op position or discussion. There seems loss serious danger now that Bland's silver remonetization bill can become a law without the pending Senate amendment, which keeps con trol of the coinage in tbe bands of tbe Government, instead of permitting free unlimited coinage at publio ex pense. Strong efforts are contem plated also for excepting customs du ties and Interest upon Government bonds from its legal Under power. Tbe discussion in tbe Senate ou the silver question is felt very sensibly in financial quarters in London, as is shown by the receipt to-day of a cable dispatch, by a prominent official from a large banker in London, making in quiries regarding tbe probable action of tbe Senate on the pending bill, and accompanied by a statement that Its passags will stop all funding opera tlons in England, and cause a heavy flow of United States bonds home winj. A Warm IxMatlv* Seealaw—A r**> sue* la*Ha tbaklim aau Berdan Talk af ** nettling Out iM#"-A Tilt ■*!«•» Biala* and Baa Hill. Chicago. Dec. 14. A Washington special to the Tribune says: The Senate executive session to day waa the scene of a passage be tween Conkling and Gordon, about which Senators are extremely reticent, hut whioh reused a sensation. Gor don was bitterly opposing the confirm ation of Wade, a Republican, as Col lector of the Third District of Georgia, when Thurman interrupted him by saying tbat if the relations of the North to the Sonth were to pass in review on every confirmation, business could not be expedited. Conkling and others thereupon said: "Goon with the cal endar buainees;” when Gordon ex claimed. In a very offensive manner: "The Senator from New York is laau Ingorders to the Chair!” Conkling replied: "It the Senator means to in i lunate that I iaane orders to the Cbair, he says what is not true.” Conkling spoke emphatically, and Gordon re torted: "That le ■ matter that can be settled outside of this chamber.” Conkling replied: “ Yse, or we can settle it now.” He again repeated his first remark. Gordon only said: “It is a matter to settle outside.” Thur man attempted to effect a reconcilia tion, by saying tbat Conkling’s call for the calendar was the usual one, and that there was no cause for Gordon's feeling; but both gentlemen sat still and said nothing, and there are wild rumors of a hostile meeting, but the friends of both ildw Mem to have no ides of tbe sequel. Blaine and Hen. Hill also had a live ly passage. Hill bad protested against Senators interfering when those from tbe State Interested were agreed. Blaine desired to know If Hill helped Conklins when be needed help. This eolliaion Is noteworthy, from tbs fart that it is the third opportunity Blaine has taken to help Conkling In executive session. NIGHT DISPATCHES. LATBIV r&OBC WAIB sir avoir. A Speedy Settlement of the Conk lin g-Gordon Difficulty. A RUMORED DUEL. Washington, Deo. 15. A speedy and pacific settlement of the Conkling.Gordon difficulty is promised to day. Richard C. McCormick, of Arizona, has been nominated Commissioner General, to represent the United States at the International Industrial Expo sition. The Intimate friends of Senator Gor don decline to affirm or deny the truth of the rumor that a message has been conveyed to SenatorConkllng.and that General Gordon has left the city and will hold himself in readiness, outside of the District of Columbia, to receive any cninmnnica ion that Mr. Conkling may desire to make to him. The mes sage, of course, is understood as an in vitation for a challenge. It was ru mored about the Senate that the matter to be brought up in secret session was the difficulty between Conkliug and Gordon. A t'Diversity Bnrned—Two M*s Km tally Hnrt-A tonrt Broken Up by n Mob. Chicago, Dec. 15.

Judge Dean commanded him to sit down, and threatened to place him in arrest, laying his hands on his shoulder. Jlist then Judge Dean was struck hack of the ear, and tbe pretended officer drew a revolver and shot at Dean, th* bell passing close to his bead. There whs a general rush, and although sev eral revolvers were held at bis head. Judge Dean succeeded in locking up the records and seal. He is on bis way to Denver, to ask the Government to assist in restoring order.

Turkish troops are concentrating on the Servian froniier. London, Dec. 15. A Constantinople dispatch says a circular note was dispatched by the Porte to Ibe signatories of the treaty of 1871. It commences by tbe state ment that tbe origin of ihe present irn roriant events is perfectly known. The inperial Government is conscious of having done nothing to provoke war; it has done everything to avoid it, and has vainly sought to discover Russia’s motive in her aggressive campaign. The Porte has shown a desire lor im provement by recognizing the judicial system and devising reforms, without distinction of rsce or religion, accord ing to tbe constitution, lie has every where been well received. A partial reform is of no avail. The adoption of improvements in one part of the Em pire only, would lie a premium to, other comtnuniiies to revolt. Any doubis as in the execution ot ibsse re forms should disappear before the sol emn declarations which the Porte now makes. Bucharest, Deo. 15.
