At its regular meeting this week the board of trustees received a check for $200 from A. H. Smiley, to be devoted to th* library fund. The chock was accompanied by a request that the former rate of 8 mills on the $100 of assessed valuation, which has been reduced to T mills, be restored as the city tax for the library fund. Mr. Smiley suggested that it would be better still to mako the rate 10 mills, in order to meet the growing needs of the commun ity as regards the public library. The check was accepted with thank's and or dered turned into the library fund, and a suitable acknowledgement made to the donor. The Facts has made a canvass of the Redlands packing houses and reports that 319 cars have been shipped from Redlands this season. It is estimated that in the Redlands district alone the crop will reach from 1050 to 1100 car loads. Therefore only about one-fourth of the total crop has been shipped. The average daily shipment for January has been five carloads. Orders are coming slowly and most of the growers are un willing to sell at prevailing prices. All iof the packers agree, from the facts as i brought out by the fruit taken to tho | packing houses for shipment, that there j is very little frozen fruit, in Redlands.

SAN BERNARDINO SAN BERNARDINO, Jan. 2?,.—(Reg ular Correspondence.) The examina tion of A. M. Williams for obtaining money by a system of blackmail, by means of bogus tetters, came up before United Slates Commissioner <J. B. Cole Saturday, and resulted in binding tha prisoner over for trial and remanding him to jail until he can give a bail bond for 11(00. This is the case where he operated in Riverside, writing letter:! that on perusal would appear to be for ! some person other than the recipient, j but which, if kept, would call forth a I letter from' a bogus detective agency, Showing the receiver of the letter tho '. enormity of his crime and stating that I f he would send on $50 the matter would be hushed up without publicity. From the amount of mail found in his room, it was evident he did a large business in Ibe two weeks he worked the scheme before being arrested. V.'hen the case of May Newell was called Saturday in the superior court, her attorneys entered a demurrer to the answer of defendants, which was over ruled, and moved to strike out the whole answer, which was denied. Then came I the motion to strike out portions of the i answer, which was granted, and the (court suggested that still further motions lie made in that direction, which will be done, and the case, when shorn of all outside matters, will be tried on its merits as to the validity of the four year contract, and nothing else. | The commlslson of Capt. T. 11. Goff, ;>.'s the commanding officer of Company I X of the N. U. C, expires January 27, I and, as he refuses to continue at the LOS ANGELES HERALDr MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 34, f>9B head of the organisation, owing to the press of other matters, it is probable that First Lieut. O. P. Sloat will succeed him. It Is expected that the election of a captain will be ordered In a few days. There Is some talk of bringing In an outside man, as was done at the time of the election of Capt. Goff, but, as this tends to demoralize the military discip line of a company, it is doubtful if it will be tried again. Capt. Goff was a member of the last legislature, hut has declined to run again for that position, as his friends wish him to do. A petition in insolvency was filed Sat urday In the case of I. E. Casner, grocer. His debts amount to $884.22, mostly to Los Angeles wholesale dealers; while he has as assets no real estate, no per sonal property, except the wearing ap parel, no merchandise, and no bills due him or accounts of any kind. He claims his stock would be worth about $000, but it is in the hands of Constable West, by virtue of live attachments, amounting to $256.50. Herman Klueter has filed complaint against Emery n. Tyler for the recovery of $1000, loaned five years ago, With in terest at 1 per cent per month. The in terest has been paid for the first four years, and the demand is for principal and balance ol Interest. The land asked to be sold is the east half of lot 6. block 38, of San Bernardino, ten acres. A good, powerful spanking machine is needed at the high school, that will start in each morning and polish off the whole school—39. well laid on, to each one. The hoodlum proclivities of the last term have broken out again, and only the poor aim of a boy. Ernest Hammer, with a revolver prevented a funeral or two among the student?. Hammer was going with a young lady of his class to a party Friday evening, when a number of boys of tho next lower class, masked and carrying ropes, waylaid them, with the intention of binding each one and leaving them to get assistance and es cape as best they might. Hammer, like many school boys, carries a revolver, and when the attack was made he drew his gun and fired two shots at his as sailants, but whether or not he hit one of them is not known, as they fled pre cipitately, and Hammer and the young lady attended the party. An attempt was made to hush the matter up, but. as the boys are more generally arming to protect themselves, it is possible that there will be a few cases for the coroner yet. At the death of Judge Anson Brunson he left a number of very valuable paint ings and works of art, all of which have been shipped to his daughter. They in cluded "The Wood Nymphs," "Asleep at the Waterfall." "Sutter's Mill," "lo and Jupiter," and others. Dr. Mrs. G. B. Row?ll has returned from a ten days' visit with friends at Los Angeles.

He was tried at Downey about three months ago on the same charge, but on account of the lack of evidence to hold him for trial in the superior court, the case was dismissed at the preliminary examination. The benefit entertainment for the pub lic lib'-ary, given at Chadbounv; hall last night was a decided success so cially and financially.

New York's Guileless Policemen Policeman Clayton EL Palmeiter of the Elizabeth-street station halls from Syracuse, N. Y. p and has been less than a year on the force. Last Sunday morn ing, being the last man of the Fourth platoon to tumble into his cot, it de volved upon him to turn off the gas. It was about 1 o'clock when he retired, and a dozen men were sound asleep In the dormitory. Policeman Palmeiter blew out the gas and was soon sound asleep. The windows of the room were ckjsed: also tho door, that the noise of the men's heavy shoes as they walked through the hallway should not disturb their slumbers. For nearly two hours the flow of gas poured from the burner, when Detective Murphy went upstairs to retire. As he opened the door he was met by a rush of gas that nearly knocked him down, and. hastily opening the win dows, he proceeded to arouse the men. Palmeiter admitted that he had blown out the.gas, and when asked why, after being shown how to turn It off, he is said to by two policemen to have re plied: "Well, that's the way we do up at Syracuse." Several of the policemen felt sick when they turned out Tor the early tour, but there were no other bad results.—New York Herald. The photographer's shop is a place of taking features.—Philadelphia Bulle tin. MINES AND MINERS The production of gold in 1897 waS 2,685,000 fine ounces, valued at $55,49*1, --950, against 2,568,433 fine ounces valued at $52,888,209 in 1896, says the Engineer ing and Mining Journal. The production In the Transvaal was about the same as In the United States, and It will be doubtful which country will hold first place until revised figures are obtained. There was a large Increase in the gold production of Colorado, which has now surpassed California for the first time. The gold production of the Klondike, which was only $2,000,000, notwithstand ing the exaggerated newspaper reports, has been credited to Canada, and the latt er country shows consequently a great increase In output. The most Important gold producing district in the United States was Cripple Creek, which broke Its best previous record. Other Import ant districts of the year were the Black Hills, South Dakota; Mercur, Utah, and the various camps of the Mother lode In. California. The production of silver of domestic origin in the United States in 1897 was 56.117,000 fine ounces, against 58.488.510 fine ounces in 1896. In addition to this, there was a production of 39.325,000 fine ounces from foreign ores and bullion, against 33,133,529 fine ounces In 1896. The decrease in the American production is accounted for by the heavy decline In the value of silver, which compelled a num ber of Important producers to close down. The falling off in production would undoubtedly have been greater had It not been for the high price of lead during a considerable part of the year, A very large proportion—probably 80 per cent—of the stiver produced United States Is now derived from ores in which gold, lead or copper is the more important element of value. « Del Mar Wants Mines Eugene Del Mar, a well known mining operator, was in San Bernardino re cently, says the Times-Index. He repre sents an English syndicate that is buy ing mines. The particular mines in this section on Which Mr. Del Mar has his eye are the Black Hawk group, in the Black Hawk mining district, near Holcomb valley. The former are known to be very valuable, although they have never been developed extensively. While here Mr. Del Mar filed papers deeding the Bear and Argus placer claims to the Mountain Bear Gold Min ing company. The deeds were from J. B. Cook. John Carter and James C. John ston, three-eighths interest; Algernon Del Mar, one-eighth interest, and-J. R. Duryee, one-eighth Interest, in the Bear, and Peter Davidson, J. B. Cook and John Carter, three-fourths interest in, the Ar gus, to John E. McFee and Alexander Del Mar. The latter named gentleman in turn deeded all their interest and the interest thus acquired to the Mountain Bear Gold Mining company. Marcus Daly and the Verde Talk in Jerome is that Marcus Daly of Montana will commence operations in that vicinity next spring; that he will build a railroad, put up a smelter and establish a town in the Verde valley. Of course, whenever people talk of a man of Daly's wealth they magnify the prob able extent of his operations, but there is ground for the belief that Daly will become interested in mines in the vicin ity of Jerome, if he has not already done so. If he does, that section will have an other strong financial arm, just as strong as the one which has already made it what it is now, and the two com bined will bring it forward as a mining region superior to any in America in point of prosperity and population, for there are the mines, rich mines and plenty of them, backed up by the great Verde valley, a wonderfully productive agricultural region—the two great in dustries, mining and agriculture, being sufficient to sustain a small empire in itself.—Prescott Courier. A Rich Mine One of the richest mines In Mexico is the Esperanza, situated in the El Oro district, state of Mexico. This mine is owned by a Mexican company. Not long ago Charles Lane, the owner of La Fortuna mines, made an effort to buy the Esperanza property. He was to pay $6,000,000 Mexican money for the mine, and put up $80,000 option money on the deal. For some reason he failed to make the purchase, and he forfeited his $80, --000. The mine is said to be worth con siderably more than $6,000,000. The gold vein in the Esperanza is 100 feet wide and the larger part of it runs $30 to the ton. The company is operating a 40-stamp mill.—Two Republics. Southern California Mines The mining district of Southern Cali fornia will probably show an increase of gold production of not far from $1,000, --000, as compared with 1896. During the year a great amount of development has gone on, and many new mines will be producing this year. There Is now more prospecting going on all over the deserts and in San Diego county than has ever been known. More capital Is seeking in vestment than ever before. Sales of de veloped mines and of promising claims are reported almost dally. Many of the investors are Eastern men, but there, as elsewhere throughout the state, Califor nians are eagerly looking about them for gold properties. A number of mills and cyanide plants have been erected or ar ranged for during the past few months. It is esttmated that there is $14,000,000 invested in the gold mines south of Te hachapl with about 1500 stamps dropping and about 6000 men employed. The num ber of mines located is about 3SOO, and perhaps 2500 are being actively worked or developed. Yet as truly as of any other part of the state can It be said that the development of the gold re sources has hardly begun. During the year hundreds of valuable finds have been made and in scores of claims on which development has proceeded "strikes" have been made. The great est activity has been seen in the Rands burg district, which will now enjoy a second growth with the completion of its railroad; but the Virginia Dale, Per rls, Panamlnt and other districts scat tered over the great arid gold-produc ing territory are likewise seeing the be ginnings of greatness.—San Francisco Call. Alaska's Gold Product The Alaska Mining Record gives the following estimate of the Alaskan gold product of 1897, including the American portion of the Yukon Valley: "The output of the mines of Alaska is extremely difficult of estimation. The vastuess of the mining territory, the ml gratory characteristic of Its population and the entire absence of reports ana statistics from a great part of tbe small er camps render it a difficult matter to arrive at a statement approximately cor rect except by careful study and watch ful attention tfi every detail. The fol lowing estimate Is believed to be as near ly correct as possible, and still repre sents fully, yet conservatively, the pro duction of gold In Alaska during the past season: Nowell Gold Mining company. 60 stamps. $275,000; Berners Bay Mining and Milling oompany, 40 stamps, $200,000; Alaska Treadwell Gold Mining company, 240 Btamps, and Alaskan Mexican Gold Mining company, 120 stamps, $1,400,000; Alaska Juneau Gold Mining company, S5 stamps, $120,000; the Jualln Mining company, 10 stamps, $75,000; Ebner Gold Mining company, 10 stamps, $85,000; Alaska Wllloughby Gold Mining com pany, 10 stamps, not In operation; Green mine, Norton sound, 10 stamps, $30;000; Bald Eagle Mining company, 4 stamps, $250,000; Alaska Commercial company, 46 stamps, $600,000; Portland Alaska Gold Mining company, 10 Btamps, $30,000; Au rora Borealls Gold Mining company, 5 stamps, Just started; the Sum Dum Chief Gold Mining company, five stamps, Just started; total output of quartz mines, $3,035,000; Lituya Bay pla cer mines, $20,000; Cook InleJ placer mines, $250,000; Birch Creek district, Yu kon mines, $800,000; othe"r Yukon dis tricts, $700,000; from various dis tricts throughout the territory, not named in the above, $50,000; total output $4,855,000. This Is but a slight Increase over the output of last year. While the quarts production is considerably greater than that of 1896, it will be noticed that the placer output, which was greatest In Birch creek district last year, is con siderably smaller owing to the aban donment of that district by many who Joined the Klondike rush. New Road to the Mother Load It looks as though the mother lode Is to be reached before a great while by another railroad line, which will give a large mining region that new Impetus which transportation facilities, bringing cheapness and convenience to every phase of mining life and operation, can give In a greater degree than anything else, says the San Francisco Call. The Stockton and Tuolumne Railroad com pany, though composed mainly of wo men and so far managed by an able and active woman, seems to have good pros pects of getting a real railroad running from tidewater to Summervllle, on the East belt In Tuolumne county. The Stockton and Tuolumne road, If built, will go through Copperopolls, and will likely bring about a resumption of copper mining In'that rich copper re gion. When the leading copper mine there closed down It cost $3 to haul the matte to the railroad at Milton arid 82 to get It to Stockton. Coke cost as much to got In. A rate on matter of 81 from Cop peropolls to tidewater might be expected to result from the building of this road. The line would cross the mother lode near the Rawhide, Tarantula and other large mines, and reach a group of rich mines on the East belt. Sonora would be reached, and the cost of transporta tion and production would be decreased over a large mineral area In the county. With this and the Sierra railroad reach ing It, Tuolumne would make large strides. Tbe Buckeye The Buckeye mine is having the loose rock in the lower level cleaned out, when it will begin the work ot stoping and shipping ore, says the Kingman (Aris.) Mineral Wealth. The Buckeye has pro duced in the past the finest native silver ore found In the west. The ore chute was lost, and during the time it re mained idle a cave-in occurred in the lower level, exposing the rich ore 200 feet from the main shaft, and a cross cut near the shaft developed the fact that the ore continued to the shaft. This Is another lesson In favor of the cross cut. The ore Is better with depth. The Copper Output While the demand for copper during 1897 all aver the world has continued at the highest point known In history, the production of the United States dur ing the year just closed showed only a comparatively small Increase over that of 1896, says the Phoenix Republican. Arizona produced in 1896 73,745,321 pounds, while the output for 1897 was 80,401,409 pounds, an Increase of 6.656,088 pounds, or 8 per cent. Of the total pro duction In 1897, the Montana mines pro duced 47 per cent; the Michigan mines 31 per cent; the Arizona mines 16.5 per i cent; and all others 5.5 per cent. The I largest proportionate Increase was 21 per cent In the output from other sources, Arizona coming next with a gain of S per cent. The Michigan mines Increased their output less than 1 per cent, while In Montana there was a de crease of a little less than 3 per cent In production. The total production of copper in the United States was 475,338, --240 pounds, ■an Increase of 7,715,367 pounds. As indicating the wonderful growth of the copper industry in this (country, it is shown that the production from 1894 to 1897 increased 33 percent. Two Ways of Mining "There is all the difference," said an old minor lo a Tucson Star reporter, "the way some people carry on mining business. One kind of men develop their mines to see how much ore they have, then get their machinery on the mines. The other kind put their machinery on their mines first, and then go a-huntlng after the ore. Now," continued he, "there Is a case In point: An old mining man, worth his millions, spent $76,009 in developing a group of mines before he purchased them, and for which he then paid $60,000; now he is going to expend $25,000 more before he puts up his plant. He has about $150,000 of ore In sight that is uncovered. Now, there Is a min ing company operating not more than forty miles from this property. It has spent many thousands of dollars on building a road. It has got from $40,000 to $50,000 worth of machinery on its mines and in transit, and probably not to exceed $5000 worth of development work, and at the very best estimate not 810,000 worth of ore in sight. Do you see the difference in the way people mine?" On Humbug Creek Robert M. Shearer, an energetic min ing man, has bought the Cartwrlght & Phillips ledge at Humbug, and found a rich vein within six feet from where the former owners quit' working some time ago on losing run of the ledge, says the Yreka Journal/He showed us some very rich quartz taken out last week, and in tends putting on a force of men to get out quartz for milling. Humbug City is likely to be resurrected to its glory of the '50 period, a boarding house and the usual pioneer saloon'having been built as a commencement. Humbug creek in the '50 and '60 periods contained a large population, requiring three elec tion precincts—at head, center and mouth of the creek. Mining Notes The Lone Star Mining company, with» a capital of $1,000,000, was organised at . Ontario last week to work the Lone Star and Yankee Doodle mines. Two Napa girls, Misses Josephine and loni Rider, have bought the Yellow Rose of Texas mine for $2500, and will develop the property. Tho total mineral product of the Slo can district for the year 1897 will exaeed $8,000,000. The gold output of Montana In 1897 Is estimated at $4,500,000; silver output, coinage value, $21,000,000. Bannock, the first capital of Mon tana territory, after being dead for 25 years, le rapidly reviving through the enterprise of Chicago men, who have been working its old placers by means of dredges. The operations thus far have been successful. One run alone netted the company $7000 in 24 hours. The ground and dredge cost $100,000, and have already been paid for with the gold obtained. , An exceedingly rich ledge has been struck In the Rising Sun mine, near Dow nlevllle, Sierra county, Cal. The rock is ribbon quarts, and the gold lies in layers, some a quarter of an inch thick. One piece of rock was taken out which contained 49 ounces of gold. The tunnel Is in nearly 60 feet, and the ledge still continues rich. W. C. Thompson has arrived from Gold' Creek, Nov., says the Anaheim Gasette. HS has come to superintend the bund ing of a plant of the Beam process at the mines of Jacob Yaeger In Trabuca can yon. This plant will be the first of the kind in the state, and will demonstrate the ability of this process to work the rebellious ores at a profit The Sell mine, Tuolumne county, has 22,000 tons of ore on the dumps, which. It Is claimed, will work 88 to the ton, A 10-stamp mill Is to be erected at once. Ten tons of ore from the Free Coinage produced 21 ounces In gold. The con centrates went $160 per ton. The ledge Is three feet wide, and Is seven miles east , of Ashland, Ore. Annual Sale* overo,ooo,ooo Boxes FOR BIIIOUB AND NERVOUS DISORDERS such as Wind and Pain In the Stomach, Giddiness.
