COFFER EM. Issued Thursdays. Clifton, Ariz., April 12, 1900. Vol. 1, No. 52 The Pearce mine in Cochise county has got back on its old pay streak and is turning- out bullion by the car load now. The mine has paid better the past six weeks than ever before in its history. Gazette. The coal famine in Europe and the difficulty of filling Europe's future want for coal, ought to be a matter' of anxiety to the na tions beyond the Atlantic. The cost of coal in Great Britain has so increased that it cannot com pete with American coal any where in the Mediterranean ports. ' What would be the difference to us, asks an exchange, wheth er a foreign foe were to conquer this country and levy a tribute on the people of several hun dred millions a year and the trusts doing the same thing? Are the people not despoiled just the same? If you would have reason to defend your prop erty against the one why vote for a system that makes the other possible? nirinrsTrsiririririnrtrir Electric cartridges are offered by an Italian, Señor Donato Tommassi, as a substitute for dynamite for mine work and warfare. The composition used in the cartridges is carbonate of potash and chloride of amonia, the proportion varying accord ing as it is to be used for dyna mite effects in rock work, or powder effects in ordnance.

The inventor claims that the cartridges, until subjected to the effect of electricity, are entirely inoffensive and perfectly safe, so that there will be no necessi ty of isolating the magazines where they are stored. A writer in Ainslee's Maga zine points out that the world's output of gold in 1898 was $287,-1 428,600 and that in the United States was $64,463,000. The value of the cotton crop in the United States, that is,, the raw cotton in 1897 was $319,491,412. The cotton crop in the United States is, therefore, 11 per cent greater than the gold output of the world, and five times great er than the gold output of the United States. Statistics of the above char acter betray an inevitable defi ciency of money consequent up on the gold standard. There is not enough annual output of gold in the whole world to pay for the annual cotton crop of the United States! The entire gold output of the United States five times less than sufficient to meet the annual American cotton bill! Add all the American products and we are forced into using wild-cat money as a make-shift for good money. Ex.
