An ollicial statement has been

An exchange very truthfully re
marks that tho United States does
not want war. But it is not afraid
of war. The English editors of to
day certainly have not read tho
history of their own country, as they
are always talking about tho weak

bo so, how weak is Groat Britain!

General Nelson A. Milos, in a ro
cent London iutorviow, whon asked
if tho United Statos army was ablo
to cope with a Europoau power,
replied: "In any population it is
estimated that one man out of Gvo
is cablo of bearing arms. That
would give tho Uuitod States an
army of 12,000,000. Our peoploaro

that, each citizen is a sovereign aud
personally interested iu tho welfare
of his government, and serves volun
tarily without boiug forced iuto ser
vice by military despotism. Wo
have many thousands of men still
living who have seen moro war,
participated in moro battles than
auy man in Europe. But it is quite
another thing to equip an army
with modern appliances for defense
of tho coast, whero wo would havo
to use high power guns and modern
projectiles, which it takes years to
construct. Modern rifles aro differ
ent from tho squirrel guns with
which our revolutionary fathors
wont to war. Tho range of modorn
arms is very groat and the projec
tiles hoavior. Tho Maxim and Gat

Congress is composed of lower

comprising tho business and rosi

Wo landeu m tho city at v a. m.
Sunday, and found tho town alive
with tho hum of business. Tho roar
of machinery in tho mill, tho la
bored breathing of tho hoisting en

coupled with business activity in
lower town, told us plaiuly that
Sunday as tho day of rost is prno

At the company's store wo mot
tho gonial aud courtoous W. F.

mation contained b'olow, rolatiyo to
tho mines. Mr. Staunton is a young
mau, but ho is genuine business a
through, everything working with
clock liko precision uador his super
visiou.
Mr. Stauntou informed us that the
uumber of mon employed is 125,
with a pay roll of $30,000 per month.
Tho output of tho mine is 120 tons
of oro, averaging $20 per ton in
valuo, besides tho additional tdtip
mont of 25 cars por mouth of high
grado ore. Tho mill is a 40-stnmp
and runs day and night with the
exception of tho first day of each
mouth a day for rost and repair.
TJo oro is taken from threo shafts.
No. 1 is 1,750 foot doop, No. 2, 1,400

lighted by oloctricity.
A now hoisting plant has boon
ordered for the nhaft No. 2. capable
of goiug to a depth of 3,000 foot,
and in shaft No. 3 a similar hoist
will bo placed, capable of hoisting
a load of 20,000 pouuds at the rato
of 1,000 foot por minute for 3,000
feet depth.
Tho water supply is taken from
Martinez creek, to tho northwest,
raised 500 foot, and pumped a dis
tance of ouo milo into tanks, from
which thu mine and the tanks are
abundantly supplied. Tho company
charge tho inhabitants of lowor
town Si por mouth for water, which
would be considered a fair price in
any town. Tho supply is taken from
a hvdrant at tho company's store in
barrels trundled on their sides to

chasers, who have their tiekots
punched for each barrel taken.
All tho supplies of tho company
and tho merchandise for tho business

The company has a magnificent
56-ton Brooks' oil burning ongino
that does tho work. Tho train makes

Congress has tolographic aud tolo

At tho cyanide mill 100 tons of
