Macon, - * Georgia, MINERAL AND METAL .PRODUCT OF AMERICA Summary Compiled From Fig ures From Producers. COMPARATIVE STATEMENT United' States Leads the World In the Production of Coal and Gold. Dividends Paid by 210 Companies Allied to Mining. New York, Jan. 6.— The Engineering and Mining Journal today gives a sum mary of the mineral and metal produc tion of the United States for the year 1900. This summary has been compiled from advanced figures furnished by pro ducers and from official sources and gives a complete statement of the gold production of the world for the year just closed. The total value of the metal produced in the United States in 1900 was $509,800,992, as compared with $946,057,320 in 1899. The value of the output of nonmetallic substances was $756,680,991, as against $645,754,306 in 1899. The total value for the two years, after allowing for duplications, was re spectfully $1,157,162,182 and $1,449,- 390,594. Tne more important items of this pro duction in metals were gold valued at $78,658,755; silver, $37,085,248; copper, $100,156,345; lead, $22,005,659; zinc, $10,786,230, and pig iron, valued at $238,076,737. Os the nonmetallic products by far the most important was coal, of which the United States produced no less than 274,847,779 tons—the greatest quantity ever produced in one year by this or any otner country. In 1899 the United States was the largest producer of coal in the world and this pre-eminence was increased iu 4900. Other important products included cement, of which 17,828,698 barrels were made; salt, sulphate, mineral paints, phosphate rock and slate, while the minor mineral products included a variety too numerous to mention. World’s Gold Product. The total gold production of the world in 1900 amounted to $256,462,438, which compares with $313,641,534 in 1899, the decrease being entirely owing to the stoppage of gold production in the Transvaal by the war, nearly all other gold producing countries showing an increase. 4 In 1900 the United States took the lead among the gold producing coun tries with $78,058,765, Australasia rank ing second with $75,283,215. The large production of the Klondike has put Canada in third place with a total out put of $26,000,000, while Russia is the fourth with $23,090,862. These four countries produced SO per cent of the world’s supply. The total amount of the dividends paid 210 companies allied with the min eral industries of J9OO was $130,94) ,000. This large disbursement places mining among the most profitable of the coun try’s industries. The metal mines paid $51,502,000, or 39.3 per cent of the total and industrial companies $79,439,000, or 60.7 per cent. Amoug tfie leading pay ers were the copper mines, with $83,- 433,000 to their credit, the gold and sil ver mines $13,907,000 and the petroleum companies with $48,816,000. ENGINES IN A SNOW DRIFT Six Are Tied Up In a Cut 2 Miles Long In Oregon. Ashland, Or., Jan. s.— With the ex ception of Sisson, Cal., where it is still snowing, all points in the track of the great snowstorm that has been raging northern California and southern Ore gon since New Year’s night, report an abatement of the fury of the storm. The blockade which has existed on the Sacramento division of the South ern Pacific, south of Dunsmuir, was raised last night. Six engines are in a drift over 14 feet deep in a 2-mile cut on the northern side of the Siskiyous mountain, a few miles south of here. The company has been engaging all men along the line that could be had at increased wages to shovel snow and clear the tracks. Boers Release Prisoners. London Jan. o.—The Boei’s have re leased the members of the Liverpool regiment captured at Helvetia Dec. 29. Every woman in the country I ought to know about Mosher’s Friend Those who do know about it I wonder how they ever got along without it. It has robbed child birth of its terrors for many a young wife. It has preserved her girlish figure and saved her much suffering. It is an external lini ment and carries with it therefore, absolutely no danger of upsetting the system as drugs taken intern ally are to do. It is to be rubbed into the abdomen to soften and strengthen the muscles which are to bear the strain. This means much less pain. It also prevents morning sickness and all of the other discomforts of pregnancy. A druggist of Macon, Ga., says: ** I have sold a large quantity of Mother’s Friend and have never known an instance where it has failed to produce the good results claimed for it.” I A prominent lady of Lam- g berton, Ark., writes: “With my 1 first six children 1 was in labor B from 24 to 30 hours.

OTHER EUROPEAN NEWS Whitaker Wright’s Palatial Home. Loudon Theatergoers Have a Surfeit of Plays—London Underground Kail* ways—Warships Arrive at Caracas. London, Jan. s. —lmmense borrowing by the market at the close of December was one of the chief causes of the ad vance in the Bank of England rate of discount. The rise stopped the outflow of gold toward Paris. . The Statist, discussing the money question, considers the possibility of ob taining*gold in New York increased by the very large sales of American securi ties made by London in New York. The Statist thinks that New York can easily spare $3,000,000 or $1,000,000 of gold. A long article in The Statist on “America’s Changed International Po sition” concludes as follows: “ft is difficult to believe that the United States will be able to employ advantageously the whole of its new savings in foreign investments. The reasonable probability is that we are about to witness a great outburst of new enterprises in the United States. In dustrial companies will be created, new industries will be founded and new rail ways or continuations and branches of existing railways will be constructed. Thus there will be a vast outflow of cap ital at home while it is not improbable the new colonies may be developed on a larger scale than hitherto. If the United States spends immense sums at home and does not buy commodities on a great scale and does not invest ou a great scale it is obvious that ' the more the trade turns in favor of the United States the greater will be its ability to take gold from Europe. Therefore, the like lihood is that money rates will rule high in Europe because there will always be the danger of American capital being withdrawn not only from London but from Germany.” HE LIVES IN GREAT STYLE Description of the Home of Whitaker ▼ W right. London, Jan. s. —Few millionaires in England or other countries live in such princely style as Whitaker Wright, the moving spirit in the collapsed London and Globe group. In Park Lane, in his drawingroom, is a copy of The Cabinet Du Roi ot Louis XIV. It took three years to complete and cost many thou sand. At Godalmiug he owns a country seat worthy of Monte Cristo on which GOO workmen are now engaged in beautify ing it. Ic contains costly fountains and statuary brought from Italy. Wright’s stables cost a small fortune. They have upholstered oaks and leather settees and polished gun metal fittings, white valu able paintings and bas relief adorn the stalls.

NO LACK OF AMUSEMENT London Theater Doers ifavc a Feast of Plays. London, Jan. 5. —With a dozen thea ters within a short radius of Trafalgar square giving two performances daily and half as many more giving eight per formances a week London theater goers have no reason to complain of lack of amusement. " New theaters are rapily springing up in all directions, but the managers complain <\f vexatious delays ip their completion. Lowenfeldt’s new house, the Apollo, contiguous to Daly’s, where it is ex pected “The Belle of Bohemia” will be produced in a few weeks, will be the fu ture home of many American produc tions. George O McClellan has just returned to London for the purpose of hurrying up the work of the new Adelphi, which will be opened early in the spring with one of Morten and Kerkers’s new plays. Underground RaSiway. London, Jan. o.— Both Heard Abell of Chicago and Henry C. Davis of New York, the agents of Charles I. Yerkes, are now busily engaged in pushing the underground raiiroad work, whiclrthey hope to have in good shape by the time Mr. Yerkes arrives here in March. The delays in the plans of the electrical in stallation on the District Underground railroad are said to be due to insufficient capital and have caused a reiteration of the rumors that Mr. Yerkes will take a Land in the scheme.

THEY ARE OLD OFFENDERS Have Been Flooding the City With Spurious Silver Coins For Several Years—Their Capture Is Regarded as a Very Important One. Washington, Jan. s. —The officials of the secret service of the treasury de partment, under the direction of Chief Wilkie, made a number of highly im portant arrests iu New York last night and this morning For at least two months the secret service people have been at work to discover the makers of a large number of all silver counterfeit coins, mostly quarters and halves, which were being freely circulated in New York city. The result has been that Pio Paris and several companions, all Italians, were arrested and are now in jail awaiting the application of the United States commissioner, who prob ably will be taken today. The fact that large numbers of these all silver coun terfeits were being freely circulated in New York during the last two years has given Chief Wilkie a great deal of trouble. The coins being of almost pure silver, 900 fine, and fairly well made, they readily passed wherever presented and rendered extremely difficult the task of locating the makers and passers. Some time ago two Italians called on Platt & Co., of Gold street, New York, large dealers in sheet silver and gold, and purchased ) ,000 ounces of sheet sil ver. One of the men was observed at the time of the purchase to compare one of the sheets with a coin which he took from his pocket, probably with a view of determing whether the sheet was of the same thickness as the coin he had in his possession. This circumstance was made known to the secret service offi cials by Platt & Co., and a force was immediately set to work upon this new lead. From the fact that the men took away only a small part of the purchase, it was assumed they would shortly re turn for the rest. After a time the two men again appeared and took away an other small quantity to 111 Mangin street, on the east side of New York. Well Equipped Plant. From there they were shadowed to 95 Watt street. Detectives were put to work to observe every move made by the people who frequented these houses with the result that their lodging places were discovered and the fact established beyond doubt that at both of these num bers work was being actively carried on. Yesterday morning one of the roomers in the Magin street house became supi cious that the men on the floor below were doing some sort of crooked work and he at once notified a policeman on that beat of his suspicions, which fact came near rendering ineffective all the work that bad been done. The policeman’s unsuccessful attempt to gain admittance to the house aroused their suspicions and all precipitately fled to the Watt street place, carrying with them many of their dies, coins and blanks. The secret service officials, realizing the danger of further delay, immedi ately forced an entrance into both the houses, where they found several of the men, eight in all, at work. Both houses were fully equipped with modern ma chinery for rolling silver, punching blanks, etc. In one of the places a screw press weighing 5 tons was in operation. About 100 ounces of silver and quite a large basket full of steel dies were se cured. Many of the dies, however, had been so .mutilated as to be beyond use. It seemed that as soon as the policeman had given the alarm the counterfeiters 1 began to file away the dies to prevent them from being used as evidence. Chief Wilkie said today that this gang probably was responsible for at least 80 per cent of all the silver counter feits which have been put in circulation iu New York during the last two years. robertsTranfor freedom Wealthy New Yorker Pardoned by Governor Russell. Raleigh, Jan. s. —Governor Russell’s pardon granted to Convict Roberts, who is said to be a member of a rich and prominent New York family, was pro ductive of sensational developments. The pardon was granted upon the ex press condition that Roberts would leave North Carolina on the first train and never return. He went from the peni tentiary direct to a saloon. He drank freely and sent a telegram to New York asking for money. The governor was angrv when he dis covered Roberts was still here, and he immediately directed that Roberts be arrested and returned to the peniten tiary. News of this got to the saloon where Roberts had been all day and some people took him away and se creted him until midnight, when they took him to a train. Negroes Will Defend Themselves.

When the sen* ate convened today t v i iv dari.m* offered yesterday by Mr. Pettigrew wers continued until Monday. A bill ex tending the mining laws to Salide lands was passed. It declares all unoccupied public lands containing salt springs or deposits to be subject to location and purchase under the mining laws. The senate then proceeded to the con sideration of the armv reorganization bill. Mr. Proctor, of Vermont, for the mili tary committee, offered as an amend ment to section 22, the provision intro duced by himslf concerning vacancies in the position of chief of staff. The amend ment was adopted. When the section of the bill was reached providing for the appointment of volunteer officers in the regular army an extended discussion ensued. Mr. Money declared there were many officers in the volunteer army who as clearly were entitled as gentlemen and officers to commissions in the regular army as the cadets, who by the hazing and by their testimony before the in vestigating committees “are today dis gracing the whole country at West Point.” The committee amendment providing that volunteer officers might be ap pointed to second lieutenantcies was disagreed to, thus restoring the house provision that volunteer officers might be appointed to the grade of first lieu tenant.

Without intervening business the de bate upon the reapnortionment bill was resumed. Mr. Littlefield of Maine was the first speaker. His argument was in favor of the Burleigh bilL That bill provides a house of 88G members. Mr. Littlefield declared that the Hopkins bill could properly be entitled “an aot to cripple the state of Maine in her repre sentaion in the house and in the elec toral college. ” Mr. Littlefield resented what he termed Mr. Hopkins’ assault on the state of Maine. That statement drew from Mr. Hopkins an indignant denial which led to a sharp exchange between the two members. Mr. Littlefield saroastioally called Mr! Hopkins’ attention to the men who. like Lovejoy and Fuller had gone to Illinois to give distinction to that state. “Yet,” said he, “the gentleman’s speech was saturated with a petifog ging assault upon Maine. ” Will Attend the Inauguration.
