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.

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.

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.

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-
