The aatton of the admlnfstrathm In orderlns war vessels svmd marines to rendezvous at GtuuVtanarao -with a view to a movement against Haytl and San Domingo Indicates that a de termined effort, backed by the pow ers, will be made to restore peace In these turbulent republics. The eastern portion of the Islands of Hay tl. lai-gest of West Indian Islands after Cuba, Is occupied by the Dominican Republic, which has an area of ap proximately 18,000 square miles and a population of 150.000, of which 25,000 are of African descent, a large portion of the remainder being of mixed Spanish, French and negro de scent. The western portion of the is land Is the territory of the Haytten Republic, which occupies an area of about 10,000 square miles and has a population of about 550,000 of which fully 500,000 are of African descent. The island of Haytl seat of the first 'white settlements in America, has ' been torn by periodical revolutions during; the past three hundred years. The governments of France, Spain and the United States have been in volved directly or Indirectly on sever al occasions "during the last one hun dred years and as early as 1845 negro tiatlons were undertaken with a view to annexing- the Island to the United States, as a means cf brlngrtngr about peace and the 'development of the country. As late as 1874 the govern ment of San Domingo made overtures with annexation in view, but no action was taken when the matter was laid before congress. During recent years several imbrog lios have occurred with foreign pow ers and the United States has, upon several occasions, acted as lntermed lary in the settlement of disputes which followed the repudiation of 'claims by the Dominican government. based upon damage to the property of foreigners or failure to pay interest or principal of loans secured in for eign countries. Botn countries are graft ridden and such government as there is amounts to a species of mon ercny, the high offices being held by virtue of force of arms. cUne in many of the largest producing states. Structural materials on the other hand exhibit marked gains al most without exception. Thus 1913 was the banner year for cement, which gains more than 11 per cent over 1912, and record outputs are also shown for Jlme, building1 sand and gravel, sand lime brick, and glass sand. Other mineral products for which 1913 was a record breaking year, are bauxite and aluminum, sulphuric acid, feldspar, mica, pottery, and talc and soapstone, while substantial increases are reported for gypsum, phosphate rock, abrasives, barytes, slate and salt. These production figures all express well maintained activity in mines, smelter, furnace, and mill and prove that the American people are utilizing more of the nation's great natural re sources than ever before. A few weeks later when figures are at hand for all of the mineral pro ducts, it is expected that 1913 will be found to have overtopped both 1912 and 1907 which have hitherto held the record. Huerta Is said to have slid off the waterwagon and hit the ground with a dull, sickening thud, just previous to his determination to quit the presi dency. Old R. E. may have had some thing to do with his retirement after all. VOX POPULI. J. B. WIGGINS SAYS HE IS NOT GUILTY Pine Barren. Fla., July 18, 1914. Editor Pensacola JournaL Please allow me space in your paper to say a few words in my own behalf. I Intended not to make any statement through the papers at all. but as others are taking it upon themselves and trying to get their names before the public as well as myself. I wish to state to my many friends that I am not guilty of the charge now held against me, and ask . them all to believe nothing else. This thing has been worked up through one or two men here, and men who are trying to make others swear their way. There has been money offered, and every other thing one could do to try to down me. But I trust my friends will stand by me and when the time comes I shall be proven much cleaner than the ones who got this up. Very truly yours, . J. B. WIGGINS. As soon as the people of Xew York become nrmly convinced that the sky scraper is a menace, Pensacola real estate men might suggest that there Is no sentiment against them in this city, with a view to attracting investors. Mineral Output Is Index of Prosperity. Secretary Lane of the department of the interior holds that the nation's output of mineral products of various kinds is a fair measure of industrial activity. For several months now the depart ment of the interior, through the Geo logical Survey, has been Issuing its final statistics of the 1913 mineral pro duction which confirms in detail the preliminary estimates issued early in January for the principal minerals. In the large majority of cases these au thoritative figures tell in one way or another the same story of industrial prosperity. In coal production the Increase has been general, and it is this very fact that serves a an unmistakable index of general health in the Industrial world. But as state after state is shown to have had its banner coal year West Virginia. Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama. Virginia, Okla homa, New Mexico, Montana. Texas. Utah, and Pennsylvania In both bit uminous and anthracite, the record becomes spectacular. Ohio for in stance had its floods, yet there was a substantial 6 per cent increase In coal output, and the miners averaged more working days in 1913 than in 1912. Twelve other states showed increases varying from 3 per cent in Iowa to 12 per cent in Indiana and over 15 per cent in Washington, and only Colo rado, Maryland. North Dokota, Nevada, Idaho, and Missouri show decreased output, the Colorado labor troubles ex plaining the only significant decrease. In a similar way, the figures of coke production give large Increases, and coke, it may be noted, is a step nearer the metal industry. Petroleum pro duction in 1913 exceeded all records, an increase of 25 million barrels and 72 million dollars over the 1912 returns. In metal mining, the iron and zinc mines had a banner year, while gold, silver, lead and copper showed a de- SHE IS A WISE WOMAN.

Members of th CongTesional Union for Woman Suffffrafre are still continuing their efforts to persuade the house rules committee to meet and report out the Mristow-Mondel! bill providing for the equal suffrage amendment. Several score of suffrage advocates under, the auspices of the union, and led by Miss Alice Paul and Miss Lucy Burns, visited the capitaj a few days ago and urged on the committee their desire that a special meeting be called at once to consider the suffrage reso lution.

Sheriff Kenyon stated that amounts alleged to have been secured by Bush were not large, in no single case. It was stated by the visiting official that Kush engaged himself in the service of a fruit company, and that he wa.i an expert bookkeeper. Serving in that cTpacity for a few weeks, the sheriff explained, he. soon had the people of the town acquainted with him, and it was then, it was asserted, that sev eral checks were forged.
