THE MESSAGE.
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

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

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. The stones at. the edge of the
water are literally covered with turtles,
some of which grow over a foot and a
half long. Ducks are plentiful in some
