NEEDLES, CAL., AND KINGMAN, AKIZONA, FEBRUARY 6, 1897. NO J 5 Y X- Destitution in New York. The Journal's report oE the destitution in the city, as shown by the statements of offices of charitable organizations, are enough, to arrest the attention of even the thoughtless rich. Without exception the workers in the field of systematic charity declare that never in the city's history has poverty been o widespread and so pinching as now Tigether wiih the increase of destitution there has come a marked falling off in the amount of contributions to the societies which ex ist to combat it. The secretary of one such organization declares that among the applicants for relief this year haye been people who heretofore have been among its contiibutors. Dr. Tolman, of the Association for Improving the Con dition of the Poor, notes that applicants for work this year are, as a rule, a high class of men neither tramps nor the class which is chrouically unemployed. This association is corroborated by the heads of the other helpful institutions. The most pitiful spectacle in this world is the man out of work through no fault of his own and unable to obtain employ ment. That he exists is a negation of the virtue of the civilizition under which he suffers. The savage at heart raav hunt or fish where he will, take up and till the soil at his pleasure. The victim of civilization is shut out by laws of men's making and by privileges of men's conferring from access to the natural tources of wealth. Imposing burdens upon him, hampering him by artificial limitations on every side, civ ilization except in so far as it may be relieved by voluntary charity leaves him to treeze and to starve. Every day we are told that in New York, where work for all is unattainable, money "was never so cheap." The bank yaults are crowded with it. When the bankers by comoination tried to keep the interest rate tor call loans up to t wo per cent, the great insurance and in vestment companies, embarrassed by overflowing treasuries, cut in and lent right and left at one and a half per cent, or less than half the rate the United States government ha3 to pay. But loans of this sort are seldom made to be em ployed in productive industries The speculator, the railroad proraotor. the franchise grabber and a vault full of speculative securities, finds money for his purposes easy to get. But for the merchant, the manufacturer, and, above all, for the farmer, there was never a time when the money market was so tight. It is that fact which strangles en terprise and shuts the doors of employ ment to thousands. The people Bhould approach the prob lem of increasing destitution from its right end. To relieve poverty is indeed noble; to cure it would be better. How much monopoly of land, money and transportation has had to do with tight ening the grip of penury upon the throat of the masses is a question which should engage the gravest attention ot ever' humane and patriotic man New York Journal. Recent dispatches contained an ac count of the real beginning made in New York City toward the providing of healthier and cheaper tenement houses. The movement is in charge of the City and Suburban House Company, which numbers among its meubers some of New York's richest men. Its aim is to slowly but surely supplant a good por tion of the tenements in that city with buildings of modern construction, of per fect sanitary conditions and furnished with every appliance which will add to the comfort of the tenants. Those apartments are to be let to reuters at as low a sura as will insure a reasonable re turn to the investors. The ground of a whole city block has been purchased and such a set of buildings will be erected immediately. Four houses each 100 feet square will be put up. They will sur round a court thirty feet square. The buildings will be fireproof and each one I will be divided into tour compartments 1 by unpierced fire walls running from cellar to roof. Ventilators and other san itary arrangements will be as perfect as is possible. The smallest bedrooms will be almost twice the size of the average tenement sleeping apartment and the smallest living-room will contain at least 144 square feet. Besides beating and lighting arrangements there will he pri vate bathrooms and a general laundry room and steam drying-room in addition to stationery washtubs in each set of apartments. The company having this scheme in charge has a capital of a million dolltrs, and with such stockhold ers as D. 0. Mills, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Iselins and Cuttings there is no fear, if the first experiment proves successful, that unlimited money will not be forth coming to extend the work indefinitely. The president of the company is Profes sor E. K. I. Gould, of John Hopkins Uni versity, and he has demonstrated that benevolence can be made one of the be3t investments m the world, even if it is not listed on the stock exchange Exchange A Good Thing Spoiled. The Arbuckles had a good thing in their enormous coffee business, which was carried on with a wide margin of profit. In the injunction they got on the Woolson Miils to prevent a further cut in coffee they have provoked the bring ing out of facts which will disclose some thing of the profits in the coffee trade. A director of the Woolson Mills, speak ing of the straining order procured by the Arbuckles says: "Only for the injunction suit hanging over our heads we would cut the price of coffee hdtf a cent a pound. We cannot do it, however, in the face of the order of the court. Instead of losing 1,000$ a day, as it is stated by the Arbuckles in their petition against us, on account of the cutting of prices, we are making over 1,000$ a day, which our books will show We have ho fear of the outcome of the suit, because we can show the business is prospering. The price ot coffee iB too high now, and we can affjrd to lower it if the courts will only permit us to do so." New York Financial News. A Wonderful Producer. The wonderful DeLanar mine at De Lamar, Nevada, has been a famous pro ducer, and during the past year has made a great re:irl Tfts property is owned by Capt. DeLamar and H. A. Cohen. The output for the year i3 estimated at 3,000,030$ by many, and it is safe to put it at over 2,000,000$ The production since the new mill was completed has averaged 7,000 tons per month, and the average value is fixed by those best ac quainted with the ores of that district at oyer 30$ It iB understood that the ca pacity of the plant is to be increased early the coming peason to double the present tonnage, and should that be done the earnings will be increased to a great figure. It is claimed by many that the output of the DaLamar is to day greater than any single piece of property in the west, and that were the record pxposed it would compare with that which has been set by the Utica. More than one effort has been made during the year to purchase the property, and it is known that 3,100,000$ has been refused for it. Exchange. There is excuse for those who exhibit pride of birth and ancestry, pride of ti tles, self-won or inherited, for these are or may be marks of distinction, carrying with them the more important qualities of culture, refinement and good manners. Mere wealth carries with it no such pre sumption of good personal qualities, nor does poverty deprive one of them if they were once possessed The pride, there fore, which is founded upon wealth alone is both vulgar and offensive, and should be avoided. That self respect which lead3 one to avoid bad or yulgar company and to select one's friends and companions from the pure of heart and cultivated of manners is, if it may be designated as pride at all, wholly commendable pride. When exhibited, as it must be by people of sensibility and culture, it will never be made offensive, but will simply im part dignity to character and prevent ex hibitions of that familiarity which breeds contempt. Baltimore Sun. Edward Rosewater, chief of the bu reau of publicity and promotion of the Transmissippi exposition to be held in Omaha from June to November, 1898, acting for the exposition directors, hae approved and accepted plans for a silver palace. The palace is to be one of the imposing features of the exposition, and the central figure is a portion of the grounds to be called Eldorado. The building is to be 400 feet square, sur rounded with mammoth ornamental towers. The entire structure will be cov ered with rolled silver. The silver to be used in its external covering will be con tributed by the miners of the great weat. Over 300,000 square feet of external sur tace will be covered by the precious met al. The silver palace will be ued en tirely for the display of the mineral products and progress of the west. The amount of pure silver to be used in cov ering the walls and dome of the mam moth building has not been definitely estimated. It will largely depend upon the thinness of the sheets of pure metal that can be used for this purpose. Min ing Record. A. M. Herring, the Chicago flying ma chine inventor, ha3 just finished build ing an eight horse power gasoline engine to be used in propelling an aeroplane machine, which he says is the lightest engine proportional with strength ever constructed. It is said to be so light and smooth running that it stands upon a pasteboard box when in operation. The engine weighs only 9 34 pounds. It is 23 by hy inches, and was built at a cost of 500$ The engine has a twin cylinder. There are to be two engines on the aeroplane for moving propellers front and rear. The engine has two cylinders made from solid steel, bored out, then hardened and tempered and ground to size and a fit. These cylinders weigh only eight-tenths of a pound each Tempering the cylin ders was the most difficult thing in building the engine, as they are only one twenty fifth of an inch in thickness, and Mr. Herring says a special process had to be devised to accomplish it. Chicago Tribune. The refusal to appoint a woman to a vacant 1,500 clerkship in the War De p.artment, for which she had passed a very difficult examination and was the only one eligible under Civil Service rules, is likely to bb made the subject of a congressional investigation. The examination required that the applicant should be able to translate into English military works in French, German, Ital ian and Spanish , to do typewriting in all of these languages ; to do proofread ing and prepare manuscript lor the press, to be familiar with library methods, cataloguing, indexing, etc ; also to be tested in the use of the English laiiguage and literary compositton. Miss Maud Stalnaker, of Washington, D. C, was the only one who was able to pass the ex uruination, but the War Department re fused to appoint her to the posttion be cause she is a woman. Phenix Herald. It has been suggested that the insane asylum building be turned into a reform school and the reform school building in to an insane asylum. Coconino county, in which the reform building is located, is, on account of superior climate, a far better place for the insane than the pres ent location of the asylum while the present locaMon of the insane asylum, with its fertile agricultural lands on every side is the proper place for an industrial reform school.
