Mr. Cleveland submits to congress the usual grist, but much of it is dry-as-dust and the average reader cares nothing about it. As a matter of fact, when one has once read one of bis messages, it is not necessary to wade through another one their lack of dissimilitude being so per fect. However, we herewith present our readers with a few points of the message. President Cleveland notes the opening of the free wool market in the Argentine Republic and also that the boundary 'differences be tween that nation and Brazil have been settled by arbitration in which this country acted as arbitrator. The resumption of specie payment by Chili is regarded as evincing the ascendency of sound financial prin ciples in that republic. " .The close of the Chinese-Japanese war has developed a domestic con dition in the Chinese empire which has called for prompt attention, ow ing to the manifestation of the aver sion of the Chinese to all foreign ways and undertakings, mob attacks on foreign missions causing much loss of life and property have been the result. Although but one American suffered it is plainly the part of this government to take prompt action, and a special Ameri can commission has gone overland from Tien Tsin to demonstrate the readiness of our government to check similar outbursts. The cordial relations with France have been undisturbed, with, the ex ception that the treatment of John L. Waller, formerly United States consul at Tamative, Madagascar, re mains to be fully explained. Mr. Waller remained in Madagascar after his term of office expired, hav ing procured business concessions of value, and upon the declaration of martial law by t he French he was arrested upon various charges, tried and convicted by a military tribunal and sentenced to twenty years in prison. This government requested the records of that tribunal. The records of the court proceedings and charges have been procured, but the evidence is still missing. Meanwhile it appears tha.Mr. Waller's confine ment was not onerous. The presi dent recommends the acceptance ef the French invitation to participate in the Paris exposition of 1900. He especially commends the recent reso lution of the French chambers favor ing a permanent treaty of arbitra tion between the two countries. . Speaking of the proposition to re lieve the financial situation by the free coinage of silver at tho ratio of 16 to 1, the president declares no government, no human contrivance, no act of legislation has ever been able to hold the two metals togesher in free coinage at a ratio of appre ciable difference from that which is established in the markets of the world. A change in the standard to silver monometalism would bring a collapse to our entire j credit system. ' In reference ' to Venezuela tho do' V " tei and suggests that Great Britain sub mit its claims to arbitration. The president touches briefly on the Hawaiian question, ending by saying: "Mr. Thurston, the Hawai ian minister, furnished abundant reason for asking that he be recall ed." A change in the alien laws is sug gested which will chock the vicious system wh'yh at present overcomes the immigration and contract labor laws. The president has no suggestions in the Nicaraguan case, but expects a peaceful settlement with such con sideration and indulgence toward Nicaragua as are consistent. Occurrences in Turkey, while ex citing concern, information is hard to obtain, but our consul at Sivas has been instructed to investigate. It is not the intention of this gov ernment to become entangled in the eastern question, but simply to care for those entitled to its protectinon. Ships have been sent to points of actual disturbance ami on demand of our minister orders have been is sued by the sultan that Turkish soldiers shall guard as an escort a party of American refugees to the coast. It is earnestly hoped that prompt and effective action on the part of the great European powers will not be delayed. Owing to the growth of American interests in for eign countries the improvement of the consular service is urged. In accordance with the recommen dation of the secretary of state, it has been decided to fill consular po sitions paying from $1,000 to 52,500 annually, by a promotion or transfer from some other position in the de partment of state. These promo tions are to be made by examination, and include 196 places. Legislation is needed for consular inspection. Heavenly Phenomenon. In view of the alleged fact that the sick, the lame, the halt, the crooked, the blind, the deaf are daily being cured or relieved of their various ailments; and even the dead almost "commanded to come forth" like Lazarus of old; the pre dicted coming, by astronomers and others, of "the star of Bethlehem," may be of interest to many. "There are many astronomers who confidently predict its reappearance, and the recent disturbances in the heavenly bodies have encouraged some to believe that great astrono mical phenomenon is approaching. According to the calculations of the past, the star should appear some t ime between 1890 and 1895, and the present year being the last of the time set for it, there is considerable anxiety displayed by those interested in the question. In the year 1572 the star appeared the last time, and of its appearance then we have the most trustworthy account. 'One evening, as I was watchingHhe heav ans in my accustomed 'manner,' Tycho Brahe writes, 'I saw to my astonishment, in the constellation of Cassiopeia, a brilliant star of un usual clearness.' A few nights be fore this the author-astronomer, Cor nelius Gemma,' saw the star, and called it the "new Venus." Both men thought that this wonderfully brilliant phenomenon of the heav ans was the old star of Bethlehem, and its appearance at that time tal lied with its appearance in 1264, 945, 630 and 315. In 1254 the Bohemian astronomer and astrologer, Cyprian Lowitz, gives an account of the ap pearance in the heavens of a won derfully attractive star that had not been there before. In his accounts we have similar descriptions of the strange visitor, appearing suddenly and moving gradually away, until finally swallowed up in space. To him, also, we are indebted for an account of the same star which ap peared in 945, when the heavens seemed to be lighted up by this strange heavenly phenomenon. The Chinese chroniclers, who watch the heavens with great care, also men tion the appearance of a comet or a new heavenly body, which they isaster to their -ojr any ill luck anee to theirj rejoiced that the '0. ing down upon them. - . . ' "There have been altogether twenty-six historical accounts of the appearance of strange new stars in the heavens. Many astronomers rea son from this that should an unusu ally brilliant star appear this year, it would not indicate that it was the old star of Bethlehem. They say that the wise men simply saw Venus at the time of its great splendor, others assume that the star was oc casioned by the conjunction of plan ets, or that it was a comet. In 1826 the German astronomer Ideler, sug gested that the star was a conjunc tion of planets, and Encke repeated it in 1831. To support their theory, they show that there was a conjunc tion of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn in September of the year 3 B. C. "During the last year unusual dis turbances and appearances in the heavenly bodies have been noted by scientists, as if they were somewhat affected by the attract Tve force of another body not regularly acting upon them. More meteoric showers have been reported in the southora part of the world than usual, and storms of great dostruct iveness hare swept over the whole globe. The coldness of the last winter is attrib uted by astronomers to the influence of the planets, and whenever a comet has approached the earth in the past, unusual weather has pre vailed beforehand, as if to announce its coming. Moreover, the powerful telescopes now used for scanning the heavens reveal an unusual num ber of eetysos, as if the disturbance had caused some of t he lesser bodies to travel u little out of their courses. The wonderful variable star Algol, in Feresus, for instance, has con stantly of late undergone great changes. .A dark body, almost as large as Algol; has several times blotted out its existence from our view. The appearance of this nuge .black object is a mystery to astronomers today. Then the snows of Mars, which have so long been visible to powerful telescopes, have gradually disappeared. Early last October it was reported that the polar snow cap of Mars had entirely disappeared. No such rapid and un explained disappearance of the snow on the earth or on Mars has ever before been reported. Jupiter, in its recent appearances, has been more brilliantly belted than ever before, and as it rises, it dis plays an unwonted profusion of color. Venus has been shrouded in more or less showers of meteors, so that its face could not be seen dis tinctly, but when the atmosphere did for a short time clear up, it shone with unusual brilliancy. Its bright ness in the last few months has at tracted much attention, even among those who are not expert "star gaz ers." All these facts taken in con junction with the changing condi tion of the weather upon the earth, have lead many to predict the ap proach ofsomet ning. unusual in the solar system. -Thi object will very likely, be a new' star, comet or won derful conjunction of two or moré planets, or the long-looked-for star of Bethlehem." That Xante, "llassayanipa. What a familiar ring there is to the above, and where it the human to set foot on Arizona soil who has never heard of is. Its tone carries one away back to the deeds and dar ing of men that will live on and on, and to this day the "Hassayamper" is held in reverent regard by all who face him. Its past is the life of the country. Following the men who camped on its rugged banks and be came innoculated with that inspira tion known in poetry and song to only its waters, the founders of that to greet the tender foot is presented again in all of its magnificence like it was tho first caravan of old. As to the origin of its name there are two sides to the question. One is that the . Yavapai-Yuma Indian dialect says it signifies running wat er, while from another source the story goes that the Spanish crusad ers while passing through this sec- "wvears ago cap-Lured a ing to escape, oui jv. mortally wounded, and while in lue' throes of death pointed to his sweet heart and passionately exclaimed, "Hassayampa." From this act of af fection, the present name is said to have been chronicled in the charts designating the location of that stream, and as interpreted is believ ed to mean "Beautiful Maiden." Orrick Jackson in Journal-Miner. Ourself was one of those "pros pectors of the early days," and did that sort of thing along the East Fork of the Hassayampa as early as 18&1. But so far as that romantic story of the "Spanish crusaders" aeul the never failing "beautiful Indian maiden," etc., etc., is concerned, am of the opinion it should bo classed along with other mythology, and of equal credence and no more. Of ouo thing we are certain, the old "pros pector of the early days" had never heard the myth of the "Uviutiftil," etc, etc. . . ' THE SEA OF S0D0M. Formation of Another Body Water Like the Dead Sea. of Historic Facts About the Putrefyiajt Waters AJtnough Growing Fouler Every Year. They Are Not Devoid of Ufe. Will there be another Sea of Sodom? Lieut. Lynch, of the United States navy, has established the fact, pre viously not known with consummate accuracy, that the depression of the Dead sea (also known as the Sea of Lot and in the Scriptures as the Salt sea) is over thirteen hundred feet below the level of tha Mediterranean, while that of Lake Oenesaret is eight hundred feet lower than the ocean. The measure ments were made twenty years ago, a long period in a semi-volcanic region. Lake Genesaret is connected with the Dead sea by the Jordan flowing through it from north to south, and engineers and scientists are satisfied that the bed of the Jordan is gradually sinking. My 1 ... 1 . - , - 7 , , T?f ; ra .win UlUiK. Ul ins lUiiauimuwu! the neighboring towns and villages in dicate that the lake is continuously fall ing toward the bottom, while the water is becoming denser from year to year. The salt strata in its neighborhood are growing constantly, it seems, and sul phur springs are becoming frequent on the plains surrounding it. In the north and east of the lake the palm trees, some of them alive, more of them dead and barren, rise above the water at a distance of from twenty to forty feet from shore. That they should have taken root in the water 13 impossible, and the supposition is that originally they stood on islands submerged with the sinking of the lake s bottom. The catastrophe which resulted in the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and in the formation of the Dead sea is computed to have oc- corred about nineteen hundred years before Christ. The Dead sea has puz zled scientists ever since, and many of its remarkable features have now been explained. Its depression below the level of the Mediterranean is the deep est known on earlh. The bottom of Lake Genesaret is on a much higher level at present, but if it continues to sink as it has done in the last twenty years a repetition of the events of fouT thousand years ago is not improbable. As the world has not been treated to a spectacle of terrestrial evolutions on a grand scale within hundreds of years, the creation of a second Dead sea with in the compass of ordinary travel would surely attract the attention of all civi lized nations, and at the same time help to solve many problems of a scien tific nature. Josephus, who was born in S7 B, C, reports that the water of Genesaret was "clear as crystal, sweet and whole some." I tried to drink of it, but found it putrid and nauseating. It left a salty taste in the mouth. I asked the fishermen, pl3'ing their trade on the lake as in Biblical days, whether the water was always unfit for drinking purposes, and received answer that it grew more and more foul every year. This seems to indicate that the sur mises as to the change of conditions in the lake are correct. The water of the TWftf? cpn fi Q icTvi.11 Iriinim ia PTitirpl tt unfit for uso by man. The stench aris ing from it creates a pestilential atmos phere for many miles around. I have never been able to approach the lake in summer, but the natives have in formed me that about this time of the year the water, even a foot below the surface, acquires a temperature of ninety degrees. It Ikis been observed that past midnight the temperature of the water on the surface measured in the. neighborhood of one hundred de grees. There is. however, one false im pression in the pubiij mind to be cor rected. The Dead sea is not dead as to animal life. ITnwks, partridges, frogs and pigeons are numerous upon its shores, and all sorts of crawling in sects abound there; the sluggish wa ters, too, arc covered with ducks in fact, the fauna is the same as that in habiting the shores of Lake Genesaret, with this difference, however: All specimens of the üiiimul world about Sthe Dead sea are slate colored, while those enlivening the uUores and surface of Lake Genesaret wear their ordinary plumage and scaly dress respectively. The Lake Geue aret, also called the Sea of Tiberias or Galilee, is situated sixty-five miles north of the Dead sea. Its extreme length i-j fifteen miles, its greatest width mx and three-fourths miles. The water is very deep at the shores. In some spots its depth meas ures one hundred and sixty feet, in others seven humlrcd and fifty and more. In the northeast and northwest the shores re fi.it and swampy; the mountains of S-jfed aporca the lake in the north; ia li.e went we liave the hills of El-IIatmn:i and Ilattin. The volcanic plateau of Juuiaa commences in the east; it is distinguished for many dead craters; its greatest s height is called Ilermou. and ii. wear:, an eternal snow cap. Palms that bring forth no fruiting, papyrus plants and oleander flourish in the neighborhood of the shore.
