Joseph Jacobs, in his work, "The Year Book for Jews," has compiled statistics showing that there are about eleven million of Jews in the world to day, and more than half of these Jews are the subject of the Autocrat of all the Itussias.

MR. Welch from this assembly dis trict has introduced one good bill in the assembly. It is intended to punish the dastardly crime of blacklisting ex-em jjioyes, wmcn nas Decome sucn a com mon practice among railroad and other corporations.

A bill is now before congress fixing the death penalty for train robbery, ana not less man ten years imprison ment for any hold up or attempt at train wrecking. When the bill was referred Congressman Hubbard, of Missouri, presented to the judiciary committee some interesting statistics concerning train wrecking. He showed that during the pastsix years 183 trains had been held up for purposes of rob bery, in which 35 persons had been killed and 53 wounded by shots. The record for 1896 was 23 hold ups, in which 32 passengers and trainmen were killed, seven injured, four robbers being killed and two wounded in the conflicts. Editor Rosewatek, of the Omaha Bee, who arrived in Washington a few days ago direct from Canton, freely gave a semi-official statement of Major McKinley's position on several leading questions. He says the incoming pres ident will not favor any annexation scheme whatever, whether it relates to Hawaii or Cuba, and is opposed to a jingo policy, but will see that Ameri can interests and the persons of Ameri can citizens are protected in every part of the world, at whatever hazard. He says the president elect is opposed to the retirement of greenbacks, and be lieves they should be set apart as security for national bank security, thus obviating the necessity for issuing bond, and giving the country the bene fit of additional circulation without in-est. THE NICARAGUA CANALU A Crisis In Relation to the Ea terprise. 1VIIY GREAT liKlTAIX OITOSES IT. Hie Drink Question In Congress Effortf of Temperance People Illustrated Jour nalism In New York and Its Cost Well- man' Oosslp. WASHINGTON, Jan. !!. Special-! Among the important foreign matteri which President MeKinley will probably have to attend to is the negotiation of new treaty between this country and Nica raguu and Costa Rica, with a view to the construction of the Nicaragua canal. There arrived in Washington a few weeks ago Minister Kodriguez, representing the new y formed Greater Kcpublic of Central America, composed of Nicaragua, Hon duras and Salvador. Vewas recognized by the i resident and has already distinguished himself in the field of diplomacy. Ho sent a letter to the state department, and through Secretary Olney to the senate and the country, in which ho hit the Nicaragua canal scheme as it is now pending in con gress a very hard blow. Ho pointod out that the concession of the present canal company had virtually lapsed through fail ure to comply with the requirements of the contract made with the government of Nio aragua. A Crisis at Hand. The country is therefor; brought to a crisis in its relations to the Nicaragua canal enterprise. The people of Nicaragua are apparently dissatisfied with the present companv. Thev have waited a long time for fulfillment of the promises and obliga tions of that company and for the canal which was to le built so quickly, and their patience is exhausted. They now propose to stand upon their rights. They are tired of dealing with the ineffective company, and they want to treat directly with the United States government. They want the canal constructed, above all tilings, and they t hink it can be done only by the Unit ed Suites directly, without the intervention of a company. In this their opinion coin cides witli that of many prominent public men in this country. There can lxj no doubt that popular sentiment in the United States is in favor of the construction of the Nicaragua canal. Hut there is a widespread feeling that the government should build the canal directly through its own officers and not through a companv. The people do not want an other Pacific railway job on their hands. They want no more Credit Mobilier scan dais. While the present company appears to lie composed of honorable men, there are many senators and representatives who think the principle a bad one. They object to lending the credit of the U nited States to what is primarily a private enterprise, If the thing is worth doing at all, they say, it is worth doing directly by the nation. For these reasons the probabilities are that an effort will be made under the MeKinley administration to secure treaties with Nic arauga and Costa Kiea, through which the United States can go ahead and build the canal. Senator Morgan and others think the general arbitration treaty with Great Britain may prejudice our interests in the canal, but state department officials tell me there is no danger of this. Great ISrituiu's Position Great Britain is not much in favor of the canal. The reason is obvious. It would add more to the commercial activity of the United States in the western hemisphere and increase the naval advantages of this country. While the canal would have to be perfectly neutral, though we were to build it with our own money, we could never hope to gain the consent of the na tions to placing fortifications upon it While we should not have the right to do as we liked with our own and charge high er rates of tolls to the ships of foreign countries than were paid by our own ves sels, Great Britain fears the commercial effects of the opening up of this great high way. The truth about it appears to be, the British are indifferent. The officials of our state department deny that Great Britain is scheming to gain any advantage in Nic aragua through the arbitration treaty or otherwise. Cablegrams from London tell us that the house of commons is having a great deal of excitement over the discovery that liquor is sold in Westminster. It is contrary to law, and there is a great ado about it among the temperance pople. But as the members of the house of commons do not propose to give up their toddy, there is no way out of it save to lictnse the-burs at which they pet their drinks. It is awk ward to call public attention to t lie pres ence of drinking saloons in the lobbies of the houses of parliament, but any one wiio knows the bibu'ous habits of Knglish pub lic men may easily imagine they are not going to reform themselves with any fur prising suddenness. From the Sublime to the Ridiculous. Rev. Wilbur F. Crafts, who has promoted the efforts recently made to suppress drink ing in the house of representatives here and in the senate, tells me the temperance people are making a concern d effort to stop the rum traffic in every national and state legislature in the world. They have so far succeeded in New Zealand and in Canada. They are making a desperate effort in Lon don and in Washington, as well as in many state capitals in the United States. As I wrote you some timeago. the house of rep resentatives lu re passed a bill forbidding the sale of liquor in the restaurant under neath the house, but the senate has to agree Ivefore the bill can become a law. It was rather cowardly in tin members of the house to do this unless tlx y wi re in ear nest, for they must have known the senate would not agree. '. he senate already lias a rule forbidding the sale of liquor in its restaurant, but then- is no penalty for vio lation of the rule, and no one seems willing to enforce if. Illustrated journalism is the fad of the time. Most of the readi rs of this dispatch are probably aware of the extent to which metropolitan daily apers now use pictures toembi llisli their pages, but I doubt if any one will l e prepared to believe that there is a single m 'wspapcr establishment in New York city which has in its employ 50 firtists. Yet such is the fact. There arc half a dozen men on the evening edition, 20 on the morning paper and alut two dozen as a rule on llie Sunday edition. An other New York paper em plows 40 artists. The cost of the art department of one of these newspapers amounts to about $5,000 a week, including salaries and expenses of travel, engraving, etc. These are amazing figures, but I am assured by a New York newspaper manager that they are correct. ALTKli Wl-I.LMAN. Dr. Pierce's FavoritePrescription is of inestimable value at three stages in the lives of every woman when the girl becomes a woman, when the wo man becomes a mother, and when the mother becomes incapable of materni ty. At these times it gives safety and strength. It is the only medicine now before the public for woman's peculiar ailments, adapted to her delicate or- amzation by a regularly eradua'ed physician an experienced and skilled specialist in these maladies. It cannot do harm in any condition of the system. Its sales exceed the combined sales of all other medicines for women. The Graphic mine at Kelly, N. M., has opened eome very fine ore, in fact, the Graphic is the bieerest and best carbonate mine in New Mexico. The Graphic smelter near Socorro is again in full blast after a few days idleness on account of cracked water jackets. Its output is from twelve to fourteen carloads of bullion per month, of twenty tons each. Messrs. C. M. and Baylor Shannon of Silver City, N. M., came down from Morenci Wednesday where they had been working on the celebrated Hughes & Shannon mine, which they say is now looking better than ever. The jefe politico of Sierra Mojada, Mexico, has just rendered a report to Gov. Cardenas, showing that the total production of silver ore in that mining camp during the past two years was $12,1)00,000. This was the -output of twenty-four mines. The new rail roads will soon be built in Sierra Moja- ua, ana a number of new mines opened up. Southern Arizona mining develop ment is coming to the front rapidly and the vicinity of Harshaw is the center of activity. Twenty teams are busy hauling ore from the old Holland mine near Washington camp in the Patagonian mountains. Mr. Crow, of California, has a lease on the mine and u-:es a horse-power whim to elevate me ore irom tne depths. Xhe mine is showing well and will continue to be a heavy producer. The adit level upon the Copper 1,-ueen mine at Uooney, IM. M. has at- tainea a lengtn ot i,o feet with a vertical depth of about 500 feet from th3 surface. For 450 feet the ore body nas oeen continuous without a break, ine ore body is from three to five feet in width and will average over thirtv dollars per ton, three-hfthsof the value being gold. Superintendent Geo. R. Brown is very much elated over the results of his development work. The Treasure Mining company, of Pinos Altos, a Denver organization, is proving what may be done with New Mexico mines under skillful and econo mical control, ine Atlantic mine which was worked by different parties with but indifferent success, is now one or the steadiest producers in the west. The company employs 50 men at the mine and mill and is making the pro perty pay handsome profits. Las week the work of cleaning out and draining the old Deep Down property owned by this company and lying witnin iuo leet of the Atlantic, was commenced. It is expected that the Deep Down property will prove fully as good a mine as the Atlantic. If it does it will necessitate the enlarging of the present milling plant, which is now taxed to its full capacity to reduce the product of the Atlantic. THE CERRTL.T.OS SMELTER. oi. Li. Li. w uiison oegan surveying tne proposed smelter site on the north ide of San Marcos Arroya, last Satur day, finishing the work and leaving for aauta r e on Wednesday, says theCer rillos Hustler. The railway siding will be approxi mately 1,000 feet long; the heaviest graae win De z.i per cent, with no greater curvature than four decrees. Col. Willison will make a fifty-years lease of water from a spring 4,000 feet up the Canyada de las Minas canyon. and a pipe line was surveyed down to the smelter site. The fall from the spring to the smelter site is 160 feet. This provides sufficient headway to do away with all necessity of pumping. and will eliminate the matter of ex pense except for the first installment of the pipe line, as with a gravity supply of water the cost of maintenance will be very slight. A telegram was received from Se nator S. B. .Elkins last Friday savinir be was inclined to deed the land nec essary for a smelter site, and asking that a plat showing the location and amount required be sent him immediate ly. Ihis was done Saturday, and a definite reply, which will beyond a doubt be favorable, is expected within a day or two. The area asked for is D.tiO acres exclusive of street ways. Capt. M. Balue, president of the smelter comrmny, returned Tuesday night to Santa Fe from a trip to Kelly. Ho will now go east to make some fiDal arrangements, and will return here probably between February 1 and 5. ARIZONA MIXES. The Los Angeles Times prints the following article relative to Arizona mines: The mining industry can trive a good account of itself for 18(J6 Gold and copper have become the favorite metals, copper probably predominating. at least in numbers of men employed, with silver a disreputable and very much distanced third. One important brand-splinter new copper proposition is the Black Warrior camp, near Globe, of a score of properties, which is now swimmingly under way and will soon employ several hundred miners and smelter men. Bisbee has an output of CU0 tons a day. Jerome is producing at the rate of $8,000,000 a vear. and Clifton has a bigger output than ever before. Olobe bas in the past few months resumed its 'early importance. Both companies there have put in ad ditional stocks, the Buffalo increasing 100 tons a day and the Old Dominion 200 tons daily. As for gold camps, the new ones of permanent importance are Fortuna, Fools' Gulch and Pearee. The For tuna has 100 stamps pounding out the gold at the rate of nearly $100,000 a month. ThePearceis one of the big gest gold ledges in the world. At pres ent the ore is shipped, being rich enough to warrant it, but later the hills thereabout will surely echo to the rum ble of hundreds of stamps. The Planet Saturn, at Fools' Gulch, will soon have the most extensive cyanide plant in the territory at work. The process of mill Constipation Causes fully half the sickness in the world.

The papers have been sisrned at New York for the sale of the Tom Boy gold mine in Colorado to the llothschilds The consideration is $2,500,000. Tbe Tom Boy mine is situated near Tel luride, in San Miguel county, in th district of San Juan, in the western part of Colorado. The cmine has capacity of 145 tons daily, is worked by steam and emplovs 130 men. S. L. Ln derwood is president. With this latest purchase the Roth chiids' interest in mines in this country approaches close to the 000,000 n ure. Nearly two years ago the Explo ration company, of London, which is really the firm of the Rothschilds and their associates, purchased one quarter of the stock of the Anaconda Coppe Mining company for ST.oOO, 000. They at the same time secured an option for another quarter of tne stock at the price of Sii.ouo.uoo. That option wa-s closed a few month ago. when the company sent Hamilton brmtn, its expert, to this country, wno examined the property. Ho obtained a third option for the rest of the 000,- 000 shares. The price. was fixed at ?15, 000,000. That was subsequently closed and the Exploration Company the Rothschilds secured the famous An aconda mine for the sum of $'4. 500,000 Mr. omitn, while in iNew lone, also looked at the Homestake Mining Com pany's properties iu the Black Hill district, South Dakota. The Home- stake is perhaps the richest in the country, if not in the world. It has produced something like S-0.000,00J in the past eighteen years, and is said to ba eood for twenty years more. Expert Smith obtained an option from J. B flaggin ana others of tne owners in thu-mine. The figures quoted are from $, 000,000 to $10,000,000. 1 be Kothpchilds have their eyes on various other wini ng properties, and the fact that they are investing heav lly in American uiitis has been the talk of the financial world. The family now represents wealth amounting to $2,000,000,000.
