Mexico, had devel oped a fine body of ore. Captain Smith's son has just returned from the mine and reports that there is a great amount of ore on the dump waiting shipment to the smelter. Monroe Harper and J. K. Friend, of this city, have been busy installing a hoisting and pumping plant on their mining property at Leon during the past weeek. They went down about 75 feet with the shaft and struck consid erable water; hence the necessity for pumping machinery. The mine is said to be a good one and gives promise of plenty of good ore. A prospector went out the other day to look at a mine belonging to Senor Don Arguelles of Juarez. The mine is located in the Sapello mountains about twenty miles from Juarez, but no work has been done on it for a long time. When the prospector returned he brought with him some samples of copper ores that on assay ran 30 per cent copper and 10 per cent silver. These samples were taken from the bottom of the shaft. An effort will be made to work the property and develop it at once. Dr. H. F. Gray passed through El Paso yesterday on his way home to Los Angeles. He had been down In Mex ico for the purpose of perfecting ar rangements to start a colony of Amer ican farmers in the republic. It is re ported that he was successful in se curing a large body of land near Vera Cruz which is susceptible to profitable cultivation. . He has gone to work up the other end of it, that of inducing a colony to go and take possession. FOOD CHANGED TO POISON.

A prominent Mexican of Chihuahua the other day was asked what in his opinion was the nature of the disease that was threatening the life of Presi dent Diaz. He pointed meaningly to his fore head and shrugged his shoulders. Is Diaz Insane? A letter from Mexico City published in the Kansas City Journal says: "President Diaz will never rule Mex ico again," said a prominent army offi cer and a close friend of the president, today, "for lie is insane and the doc tors have no hope of- his recovery." Rumors of a like nature have been rife in the. city ever since the president hurriedly left the capital two months ago without giving any official notice of his departure. It is now pretty gen erally believed he was hurried out of the city by those close to him to keep from the public the fact that his mind was badly affected. To lull suspicion it was given out that he had gone to the wilds of the state of- Guerrero on a hunting trip. There were fhose who remarked that it was strange that the president should go on a second hunt ing trip when Be had but recently re turned from one. Shortly after the de parture of the presidential party for Guerrero it was whispered that . the president was not well. Then came the report that he was dangerously ill, and a few days later it began to be whispered around the city that he was insane. ' The gloom was lifted from the city. however, some three weeks ago. when it was reported that the president had completely recovered and that he was on his way back to the city. But he never reached here. .Instead he went to the fashionable winter resort, Cuer navaca. a few hours' ride from the cap ital, wnere ne was received by the gov ernor of the state, in whose house he has been ever since. There only physi clans and his family and very intimate friends have been permitted to see him. It appears from reports that it was decided to bring the president back to the capital, but that he showed such a decided dislike to returning there that it was decided . to take him to Cuer navaca. The president's malady takes the form or a great dread that some one is going to kill him. and he believes that assassins are hidden in his winter res idence here, the castle of Chapultepec. One of the doctors attendant upon General Diaz said a couple of days ago that the old man appears quite child ish, and that the strong will that made a nation out or a disorganized con glomeration of states peopled by rob bers, cut throats and political intrig uers, has completely broken down and left the' old man as helpless as a child. All there is left of his former strong self is his obstinate refusal to come back to Chapultepec. The Origin of the President's Men tal Trouble. A member of the legislature, and a man who has been In close touch with the president for years, said this week: "The present malady of General Diaz commenced to show Itself in slight ec centricities some three or four years ago, when an attempt was made upon his life by a drunken sailor named Ar royo. At the time the general public attached no great importance to this incident, nor did they think the presi dent did. But the event had a signi ficance which the public did not see. for Arroyo was but the tool in the hand of others who wished to get Diaz out of the way so that another prominent offi cial might become president." The incident referred to took place four years ago. The president and his party were walking at the head of the annual procession in honor of the Sep tember victories of the Mexican army, when Arroyo rusned through the crowd knife in hand, and attempted to stab the president; but before he could ac complish his object he was knocked down by one of the guard. He was at once secured and taken to the city ball, where he was to remain in cus tody over night. Why he was taken there instead of to police headquarters has remained a mystery. As he was verv violent he was put in a straight- jacket. That night a hand of masked men en tered the room where the prisoner laj aDd stabbed him to death shortly be fore midnight, with p score of wounds, two of which went through the bodv. The doors wore broken and the hall generally badly treated. Shortly afterward the alarm was civen.that a mob had entered the city hnll and killed Arroyo in revenge for his attack upon the president. This story was accented by the press the next day. But there were many suspicions circumstances connected with the affair which raised questions on the part of the press. . An Investi- amtlon which followed showed that the unfortunate prisoner had been stabbed as he lay in his M ra i eh t jacket by a band of police disguised as mrales. At once the city chief of police wss arrested and put. in nriwn. A few davs later h was found 'dead in his cell.

There is no douft tie was the instigator of the plot against the life of the president. The trial of the police concerned in the murder followed, and the evidence brought out showed that the murder had been deliberately planned by tbe chief of police and his first assistant, no doubt to prevent Arroyo, making any confession. AH concerned In tbe murder except two were condemned to death. The case was appealed and so far there has not . been a second hearing, and none of the men has suf fered the penalty of this crime. This incident with the dramatie se quence of events' that followed it, ha preyed upon the president's mind ever since, and lately he has desired to. get away from the country. It took all the influence of his friends to get him to stand for reelection last year. To one of his friends he said, lust before elec tion: "You must not make me presi dent again, for it I do not get away from here soon I will either die mr gm insane." RAEILROAD BUILDING ON WEST COAST O FMEXIOO. The Phelps-Dodge People are Pushing their Road Southward, and' theie are a Number of other Projects Umtfar Way that Will Materialize Sooner or Later. It seems that railroad building snuted its Dase irom jsi Paso to the Sierra Madre mountains and tbe west coast of Mexico. , Persons who are interested in that section of Mexico and who have recent ly made trips through the country state that several lines are to reach tie Pa cific coast this year and a number of mineral lines to the great mining dis tricts are to be built as soon as ma terial can be had. It is now learned that the Phelps Dodge company proposes building1 t the coast as fast as the material can be had and several surveying patties are now in the field working witM alt possible haste to reach tide water. Tbe company's concession In tbe republic calls for the construction of only 59 miles each year - until the ' coast is reached but since the company has ac quired many valuable pieces of mining property In the Sierra Madre it has de termined to push the road through kthe mountains to the coast. It ia under stood that the road will reach tide wa ter at or near Mazatlan. The road is now carrying trains into Mexico about twenty miles below Douglass towards Nacosari. and the grade has almost reached the. big smelter at that place. The surveying corps are now in tBe mountains about the new smelter at Placerita and the road is expected to reach that place before the end. of the present year. - The Phelps-Dodge company is not alone in reaching for the coast busi ness, for it is now confidently believed that the . Orient company will extend the Chihuahua and Pacific to the coast at an early date. The line Is now be ing located and building is expected to begin within a few months at least. ' The Sonora road is said to be mak ing arrangements to extend the "Burre road" from Guaymas to Mazatlan by following the coast. Another story comes from Chihua hua that will be interesting in El Paso when proved to be true, which is not likely in the near future. It is said there that the Hearst es tate has induced the Chihuahua and Pacific company to build its line from Minaca north to th eHearst ranch, and possibly to connect with the Sierra Madre road at or near Casas Grandes. It is said that the object of this- deal is to give the Stlllwell road a line to El Paso and the Sierra Madre road a connection with, the coast road to Mazatlan. Along the line of this pro posed road is some of Che best country in Mexico. The richest mines in the mountains lie along the route besides the best farm and ranch lands. The line has been surveyed in a manner several times and it is said that the to pography of the country will admit of a good grade. The road will also reacli a fine timber countrv. General Manager Sheldon of the Chi huahua and Pacific has been over the line through the Hearst estate a num ber of times this winter and left Chi huahua Thursday for another rtp. When asked about it he said he was just going hunting, but the Chihuahua people think that if he makes many more trips he will have slain all 4 he game in the country. How to reach El Paso has been a question with the Stillwell people for some time and It is believed in Chi huahua that a deal will be made by which the company will reach this city over the Sierra Madre road. The officers of "that road at this end say they know nothing of it. All the roads building in the west at present are experiencing no end of trouble in securing supplies and for this reason some of .the new projects have been withheld from the press. Mr. Buchanan, one of the contractors for the Phelps-Dodge company, states that he never saw material and teams so scarce. There seems to be no tronble in getting men. but teams are very scarce and other material comes very slow. The richest part of Mexico, and from a mineral standpoint, the richest in the world, lies in the Sierra Madre mountains and it is believed that all the roads touching this section are- en deavoring to tap that country. The big mining companies in tbe western' country are offering every encourage ment and many miles of road will like ly be built west of EI Paso this" year.
