Statistics and estimates received
by tho United States Geological Sur
vey, from all plants known to pro
duce blister copper from domestic
ores and from all Lake mines indi
cate that the copper output of the
United States In 1912 exceods that
of any provlous year In tho history
of the Industry. Not only Is tho
total output thp largest ever record
ed, but six of tho largo copper pro
ducing Btates Arizona, Michigan,
Utah, Nevada, New MIxlco, and Alas
ka have each exceeded all former
records of production, whllo Montana
and Tennessee havo nearly equalled
their provlous record productions.
Tho production of copper In Utah
In 1912 will show a conBlderablo in
crease over tho 142,340,215 pounds
produced in 1911, tho incrcaso being
duo to the Increased output of the
Bingham district. As In previous
years, tho Bingham camp was tho
main producer, though tho Tlntlc
district had a considerable produc
tion and tho San Francisco and oth
er districts also contributed. Tho out
put of tho mines at Bingham was
stopped for a tlmo In tho latter part
of tho year by labor troubles, thus
materially reducing tho oro produc
tion of tho stnte. -

To tho far famed golden shoro.
And pcrhaaps when I'm a singing
Boforo tho Throno of Grace,
And frizzling llko a doughnut

I'll hunt up a railway station,
And hand It to them flat,
I want to go right back agalu

Peter 8. Morrison Tells of Joseph
8mlth as Friend and
"I was a school mate of Joseph
Smith, the founder of tho Mormon
church as well as of his brother Hy
rum," was tho Introductory statement
that was made to a representative
of the Herald-nepubllcau last night
by Peter S. Morrison, who Is hero
on his way from Now York state to
his homo near Marysvale, Cal.
"I was born nearly a hundred years
ago," continued Mr. Morrison.
"Whllo I do not remember tho event
very naturally my parents told me,
nnd It Is so written In our family
records that I was born on a sailing
vcbsoI twenty days out from Glas
gow, Scotland and bound for Ameri
ca, March 11, 1813. I was two months
old when my parents landed with mo
at what was thon Manhattan and now
Now York port, tho voyage requiring
two months and twenty days.
Mr. Morrison yesterday called up
on Joseph P. Smith, president of tho
Mormon church nnd had a long talk
with him. Mr. Smith Invited tho
aged man Into the Beohlve house,
whoro ho was served with an after
noon meal,
"My parents lived at Harrington,
Yates County, N. Y.," said Mr. Mor
rison In telling his story, "and my
father was killed by a horso thero
whon I was very young. TIiIb loft
my mother with thirteen children to
caro for. In ordor to help her bear
hor heavy burdon, families In that
vicinity took a child each from
among tho older onos, and I foil to
tho family of Josoph Smitn Sr., at
Palmyra, N. Y. I wont to school In
school season with Joseph and Iiy
rum Smith. I well remember that
Joseph was considered somewhat of
a dull pupil that Is whonovcr he took
up a book to study ho would soon
forget all about It and go off Into
absent mjndednesB.
His First Vision
" I shall never forget what his
father said to him when Joseph an
nounced his first vision. Ills father
said that he had only been dreaming
and I thought so, too, knowing his
peculiarity of apparently day dream
ing. But he persisted In his assertion
nnd after a bit wo all began to think
seriously of the matter.
"From Now York I moved to Elyrla
Ixra!n county, 0 whoro I was found
until I was 33 years old, or up to
tho year 1840, when I enlisted for the
war with Moxlco and fought undor
Gen. Zachary Taylor. But whllo liv
ing in Ohio I heard of Joseph and
Hj'ruiu and their followers being at
Nauvoo, 111., and having been told
bo much, nbout their wonderful reli
gion, my wife and myself determined
to visit them. This wo did In Juno
1814. Wo had beon thero only a' day
or two when Josoph wao arrested and
taken to Carthago. One night in that
Juno I becamo so uneaBy on account
of tho trouble that I left tho houso
nnd wont to Carthago. Tho next day
I wns leaning against a fenco nenr
tho Jail when tho mob enmo up, It
was In tho afternoon and with mo
was tho man who afterwards drovo
tho team which carried Joseph
Smith's body to Nauvoo. Whon tho
mob npproached tho Jail tho guards
opened a space for them to pass
through, and tho nssault began.
Scene at Jail
" I saw Josoph' Smith ns ho rushed
to the window apparently to leap out
ond saw him fall U tho ground whon
ahot whllo In tho act of looping.
"No I did not becomo a member of
tho Mormon church, although I had
that Idea In my mind whon I wont to
visit tho boys at Nauvoo. Since that
tlmo I havo been thrown apart from
the Mormon pcoplo and probably that
In part accents for my still remain.
Ing a nonmember.
Experience In Mexico
"I was In all of Gen. Zachary. Tay
lor's battles fought with him In two
engagements In Texas, crossing tho
Itlo Qrande with him and afterward
going to Monteroy, Mexico whoro we
captured tho fort by storm. Insldo
that fort woro bo many prisoners
that we could not caro for them. The
only thing to bo dono was to parole
them and turn them loose.
Whllo wo wero nt Montoroy town
Gen. Wlnfleld Scott enmo along on
his march to tho City of Mexico.
Thinking that General Taylor had
dono all tho fighting he bad to do,
General Scott took alt of Taylor's
regulars, leaving him with only 4000
groon volunteers. When General
Santa Ana discovered how Taylor
had been loft, ho swung away from
his lnteudod courso and fell upon tho
green volunteers. This was at Buen
na Vista, and Taylor with his 4000
raw men, whipped Santa Ana In opon
battlo out on tho open ground, tho
Mexican general having 21,000 of tho
flower of tho Moxlcan army. Santa
Ana afterwards said that ho had Tay
lor licked twice, but tho stubborn
American didn't know It.
"Aftor I had served my tlmo I took
13G comrades of Hint war and went
with them to California. It was in
Soptember, 1849, thirt wo camped out
near tho lako uhcro tnore was a
spring of water." (From Mr. Morri
son's description It must havo been
somowhat near whoro tho Garfield
smelter now is.) "Wo restod hers for
a day or two and Brlgham Young
paid us a visit or two. He and tho
remainder of tho Mormons who
enmo to us at tho camp treated uti
very kindly.
"Toward tho end of that year wo
reached California, It was whon tho
gold excitement was at Its height.
I have lived there slnco that time my
homo now being near Marysvale. I
r, just been tq New York state to
visit some of my children and I am
now on my way back home. I will
be 100 years old March 11, 1913.
