When tho Moyor case was called this afternoon, James H. Hawley, representing Van Duyin, signified hh desiro to have tho order of dis missal entered. At the request of tho state, tho case against Dr. Mageo and C. W. AUer, charged with perjury, by reason of testimony given by them in tho Haywood case, was also dismissed.

It is believed in Goldfleld that tho striko has been practically won by tho mine op erators, and that within ten days or two weeks every mino in tho district will be in full blast.

Among the mines were tho Mohawk property, Com bination, Fraction and several leases on the Atlanta and Florence. The men went to work under tho now scale, which reduced wageS 20 per cent.

""It affirms what has always been contended by tho federation, that there was a conspiracy afoot engaged in by the mine owners to convict us, and thereby weaken organized labor. "I am equally jubilant at Petti bone's acquittal as at my own; not withstanding the reiterated statement of Gooding, it is now safe to presume that we will all leave Idaho alive."

In addition to the blood-stained note, saying that Stewart had killed him, and which is believed to havo been written between tho shot thai first felled and the re turn of the murdorers from their pur suit of Hunter, tho enso against them is strengthened by the story of Byron Hocstadt, who was employed at the Daggs camp and who claims to have seen tho two men dragging Daggs' body away.

FOR DECEMBER Almost Half Million Pounds Over November Production; Good Developments in the Mines of the District, The beginning of the new year findr the Globe district in better condition than it has been for several months. The period of curtailment, which really affected only the .Old Dominion, was not in any way so pronounced as it has been in other camps, ample evidence of which is given by business conditions in the city, which arc now what they wero before the full force of the fdump in copper was first felt here. The Old Dominion is earning about $30,000 a month, according to the statement of an ofiicial of the company, even at the pres ent price of copper, and the other large employers of labor in the district arc companies which are not affected by the metal quotations, being largely develop mont companies. These latter com panies have been benefited by the de cline in the price of motnl, as the lower wage scale which accompanies it, makes their development expenses less, nnd which enables them to accomplish more work with the same funds. Durinjf the month of December the Old Dominion company produced a lit tle over 3,100,000 pounds of blister copper as against something over 2,700, 000 for the preceding month. Four fur naces Mere in operation during almost the entire month. 0,f tho entire output for the innhth, o per cent was the pro duction from tho company's own mine, not including the slag that was re smelted. One furnace, and on some days two, was" used for slag from the old dump and during the month 14,000 tons of slag, which yielded an average of three per cent copper, was resmelted. Four furnaces arc still in operation at tho smeltci. Koro Miners at Work. Mining and development operations at the Old Dominion are" being almost daily enlarged and already since the first of the new year, fifty additional miners have been put to work, a total of about 130 added to tho force since the first of December. Many of these have been put to work in C shaft, where sinking has been resumed, the flow of water now being handled through flic crosscut draining. The shaft is now 840 feet deep. Owing to cramped quarters, poor ven tilation and the installation of new hoisting equipment, development work has been necessarily slow on the 10th level, and but little exploratory work has been done on the sulphide vein. The drift which is being run westward along the footwall has not been pushed further than twenty feet. At that point tho ore is growing noticeably heavier in sulphur contents, which are about 25 per cent. The. ore along tho foot wall doc3 not carry much copper, how ever. Some of the mino oflicials be liove that the drift will have to be pushed at least 100 feet before the big ore body is discovered. The crosscut from the winze on the 15th level is progressing very slowly, owing to the narrowness of tho winze and it will be several months before the 15th and 10th arc connected for better ventila tion. Globo Consolidated. Croscutting on the 12th level of tho Gem shaft bf the Globe Consolidated has been begun and the start of lateral work on the Gem' property marks an im portant event in tho history of the company. It should not require much time to cut one of the numerous veins in that vicinity and operations from now on at the Gem will bo watched with great interest, not only in Globe but in Duluth, the northern copper country and in Boston. Crosscutting is still in progress at the Mallory shaft. After going through eight feet of rich chal copyritc ore, the crosscut re-entered the diorite and has been in it over since. The company will soon begin td explore the vein by drifting on it in both di rections. Arizona Commercial. Good progress has been made both at the new Eureka shaft to furthei dovelop tho Black Hawk mine and in tho Black Hawk shaft itself during the last two weeks. Tho new shaft is now approximately 125 feet deep. Tho winze which is being sunk in tho ore on the 500 level' is now about 40 feet deep and somo time '.his week, after ten feet further sinking, tho vein will bo further explored by crosscutting, and tinwidth of the vein determined.

Vis count Aoki, the Japanese ambassador wiio arrived in San Francis'co last night enrouto to Tokio in an interview with tho As ociatcd Press tonight denied the itatement attributed to him in an al leged interview lust night in which he was quoted as saying "Japan is re stricting the emigration of laborers to this country and will continue 'to do so and it would be regarded as of fensive to the dignity of Japan for this ;onntry to pass an exclusion Jaw or endeavor to embody the subject in a treaty." "Such a statement did not emanate from me," emphatically declared the ambassador. "I did not talk with any newspaper man last night nor did I authorize any one to speako for me, 'lmch less make such a statement. Furthermore, I have not discussed tho emigration question with any one since I left Washington, nor have I anything to add to my farewell statement. "I am returning to Japan after a long absence to confer with the govern ment upon various matters, and to con vey to the emperor the best wishes and expressions of friendship from Roose velt and, I believe, the American peo ple. Japan Friendly. "The attitude of Japan toward this country is of the friendliest character, but the immigration question and other matters of policy between the two coun tries are for statesmen. Diplomacy can. not be so freely discussed in public." He talked at length upon various top ics, but declined to discuss the Van couver race trouble, tho immigration question in general or to comment upou the transfer of the battleship fleet to the Pacific oceau. He laughed heartily when shown a dispatch from Paris which stated that the Japanese fleet had disappeared from its customary cruis ing giound and was reported to bo in the vicinity of Hawaii. A luncheon was given this afternoon by the trustees of the chamber of com merce at which Aoki, Consul General Chozo Kioke nnd Vice Consul K. Mat subara were gue3ts of honor. C. II. Bently, president of thq chamber, who acted as toastmastcr, in introducing Aoki, touched upon the labor riots and anti Japanese feeling aud expressed gratitude that the governments of the two countries were composed of men who were not to be deceived by an ex hibition of rioting or disorder by tho lawless element. He declared that this .vas not typical of the feeling of the people of San Francisco toward tho lapanese, much less that of the Amer ican people as a whole. Debt of Gratitude. Aoki, in response, said that tho debt of gratitude of Japanese towards Amer ica is so great that no isolated cases of.complaint could ever dissipate it and cited the friendly assurance that' the emperor of the Japanese is reported to have sent to Roosevelt, through Taft. "Japan wants peace with America," and ho added, "Now and always she will omit no effort to make that desire a reality. I am .convinced that Amer ica reciprocates this good will and I shall bear that report across the ocean. "Japan and America need each other and that need will grow stronger with years. They have a thousand interests in common and not one rational matter for serious difference. Let me leave you with the assurance that the spirit which has prompted you to extend this delicate courtesy to mo as an individual is not misunderstood. The honor you do me is intended primarily for my country and I would not have it other wise. I shall interpret your action as a message of good will from San Fran cisco to Japan, as an expression of your desire to be good friends. I will car ry tho message, assured of its kindly reception at tno other end." LANDLORDS ARE GIVING' IN TO STRIKING TENANTS NEW YORK, January 4.
