A BURNING MINE.
Fifty Men Imprisoned by
Fire.
SHALL HOPE OF RESCUE.
Negligent Inspection Leads to a
Frightful Disaster in One of
the Wigan Coal Pits.
Special to Ti:f Hokimra Call.
LotfDOX, Dec. 14.— There was a frightful
explosion this morning in the Bunfurlong
colliery at Wigan, supposed to have been
caused by firedamp, and it is believed that
not less than fifty men have lost the r lives.
The miue.was inspected early this morning
as usual, and then the men went down to
work in it. Shortly after the last of them
bad gone down into the pit there came an
explosion that shook the earth and a cloud
of t moke shot up from the shaft. Of course
it is impossible to say at this time tow the
disaster occurred, but it is though: that the
Inspection must have been carelessly made
and that the inspector overlooked a great
accumulation of gas somewhere. Certainly
the miners could not have uncovered a de
posit of ga», as they could hardly have mrre
than started to work before the disaster
came.
As soon as the explosion was heard,
coiu^D and children, the relatives of the
men in the burning depths, came rushing to
the mouth of tha pit, and there was a (rail*
ing of agony and weeping and wringing of
bauds such as no: even the hardest could
look v; mi unmoved.
There was another rush, also— a ru«h of
volunteers to explore the miue, Ifcouch fire
had broken out in the mine immediately
after the explosion and it seemed tapoasibta
to pet down to where the imprisonei men
were. la spite of this, however, steps
were taken at once to ascertain the extent
of the disaster.
It was learned that I<X) men were in the
mine when the explosion occurred, ;.ud at
noon the rescuers, fighting tho smoke and
flames at eveiy s'.ep of the way, had taken
cut twenty, badly burned. At that time
it looked *.i$ thouch most of the men below
would be taken out safely, bu; the situa
tion grew worse rapidly.
The rescuer* reported that the mine was
on fire in the upper level and that the men
who were still alive were in a lower i-eam.
imprisoned by the fire that cut them off
from the surface. Under these dream
stances it was, of course, Impossible to
flood the mine, but the air-pumping ap
paratus was found to be still in working
order, and so long as that was all right
fliers was hope of rescue.
This nope was doomed to short life.
Despite all effrrts to extinguish the fire the
fian:es spread to tbe engine-house at the
head of the air tunnel. This stopped tbe
punuiiDg of air into the mine and added
greatly to the peril of those who wer« la
the pit. The fire was not subdued until 5
oVliM'k this afternoon and some little time
after the bodies of twenty miners were
brought to the surface by rescuing parties.
i :t>!-e rescue parties report horrible
scenes In tl.e mine. In the main roads
b d.c« lie in twos and threes, as the men
fell. Larce sections of the ro:>f of the mine
and cilleries ccllapn^d and amid the ruins
»e r e found mangled bodies and half burned
limDJ. These ruins blocked many parts oi
the mine, anJ, therefore, the mea searching
for bodies were unable to give any definite
idea of tbe number of those last. Several
miners who were just alive when found died
on the way to the surface or shortly alter
being taken from the car. The work of
re»cne will be continued through the night,
althouKh there is littlo hope that any m« re
men will be taken out alive.
FIGHTING FOR TIME.
Caprivi Works Hard, but He Is
Probably Beaten.
The New Army Bill Cannot Pass, and
the Reichstag Will Probably
Be Dissolved.
Sp«rlal to The Mornixb Call.
Berm.v, Dec. 14.— The debate on the
first reading of the army bill was continuel
in tl.e Reichstag to-day. Herr yon Mas
teuffel, a Drominent leader of the Con
gervative party, made a speech on the
measure, in the course of which he resent
ed the aversions cast upon the Conserva
tive party by Chancellor yon Caprivi, who
a f»-w days ngo declared that the Conserva
tives were supporters of Rector Ahiwardt.
On beUalf of the Conservative party Wan
teuffel disclaimed any intention of carrying
on a demagceie propaganda. They never
made their attitude toward the army bill
dependent upou concessions in other mat
ter*.
Caprivi replied and referred totlie report
published in the Kreus Zeitung of a recent
meeting of the Conservatives, and said he
drew from this report the conclusion that
tne part}- had sympathy for the man who
bad been condemned by the judges of the
land as an aspersor cf the army.
This stateiueut was greeted witb cries of
"On, on," by the Conservatives.
Continuing, the Chancellor said he was
satisfied now to find the party declined to
identify itseif witn Ahiwardt.
Dr. Lieber of the Center party declared
the Centrists would only support the two
years.' service clause of the bill under the
existing organization, and would oppose an
increase in the number of soldiers provided
for in the bill. They would, he added, op
pose other points of the measure. In the
eonrse of his remarks Lieber made ex
tended reference to the relations existing
between Germany and the Vatican. He
laid particular emphasis upon the state
ment that the entire party would not dream
of demanding the restoration of temporal
power to the Pope as the price of the Vati
can's sanction of the Triple Alliance.
Upon the motion of Dr. Osann, National
Liberal, the bili was referred to a committee
of twenty-live.
Caprivi is doing everything in his powor
to gain time, in the hope of winning over
the Cen'er party, but everything points to
tto© abandon uncut of the army bill. The
socialists are actively organizing, in view of
the dissolution of the Reichstag, and declare
they are certain of an enormous increase in
votes. It is reported the magistrates are
instructed to have voting lists ready for
January 20. If tni*\ this points to the con
viction in Goverument rjre>s that dissolu
tion is imminent and will be necessary.
BALfIACEDANS YET PLOTTING.
Fifty Conspirators Arrested at Val
paraiso.
Yalpakai^o, Dec. 14.— Another plot of
tl:e followers of the late President lialma
cedn has been discovered by the Govern
ment at Santiago and frustrated.
An attempt was made to corrupt the
Kevrtitii litvimeut, and the fact became
known to the Government Shortly before
the evening call yesterday the police
closed in, barring the exi'.s from the bar
racks. They then arrested several groups
of conspirator*.
The plans of the plotters were seized.
Various points in the city were to have
been sacked and lists of prominent Govern
ment officials who were to have been killed
were fouDd. A number of masks, daggers
and revolvers were also iound.

NO ASSURANCE OF PEACE.
~lr. Balfour Indulges in Some Rather
Plain Talk.
London. Dec. 14 —The Conservative Con
ference Ht Sheffield has adjourned. A reso
lution was adopted in favor of measures to
remedy the depression in tlte agricultural
industries of (ireat Britain, provided such
measures should involve no increase in gen
eral taxation. The conference extiibited
great enthusiasm, especially in denouncing
Irish home rule.
Before the adjournment Balfour said that
the Conservatives would support any firm
and energetic Foreign Minister, no matter
what his politics. Tlie condition of the
international strain in Europe at present is
so great that it would be folly to anticipate
confidently an indefinite future of European
peace. Unless the imperial forces should
be kept at the highest possible efficiency,
the lime might come when the British
Foreign Minister would be powerless to
forcibly support the national honor.

WANTS BRITISH HELP.
Clearly France Has Kinjc Behauzin
Pretty Well Whipped.
Paris, Dec. 14— X ng Behanzin writes
that the negotiations which took place at
Cana had resulted in the conclusion of an
agreement providing for the cessation of
war in return for the cession of the town of
Kotonou to the French. Genera! Dodd, tlie
commander of the French forces, broke the
agreement, however, and oommptieed to
march to Abnmey, the capital of Dahomey.
Ueiiauziu adds that he thereupon set fire to
Aboniey and retired to Acradulen with
20,000 soldiers and is prepared to carry on a
sanguinary guerrilla warfare. He concludes
his letter by proposing to cede Wnydah to
the British.
OUR IMHIGRATION LAWS.
European Nations Look Upon Them

London. Dec 14. — The Chronicle's
Vienna correspondent says that, according
to information received from a semi-official
source, the United States Immigration reg
ulations will form the subject of an inter
national exchange of idpa», and the Euro
pean powers will probably make a repre
sentation on the subject to the Government
at Washington.
CARNOT MAY RESIGN.
His Brothers Involved in the Pan
ama Canal Scandal.
The President Reported to Have Said
That His Retention of the Office
Was Almost Impossible.
Special to The Morn i no Call.
London, Dec. 14.— A dispatch from Paris
to the Central News says : "The rcraor3 that
President Carnot will resign shortly are
confirmed this evening. At Tuesday's Cab
inet meeting, during a heated dispute be
tween Bibot arid Rouvier, the Presides! in
terposed the remark: 'The action of certain
ministers renders my retention of officfl
almost impossible.' Carnot's difficulty is
increased by the reports that his family and
brothers are involved in the Panama canal
scandal." '.y L . v '
ROLVIER AS A WITNESS.
Nothing to Add to His Statement Al
ready Hade.
Paris, Dec. 14.— Tiie principal witnesses
examined by the Panama canal committee
to-day were Rouvier, v. ho yesterday re
signed the finance port! . Constans,
formerly Minister of ilia Interior, and
Clemenceau, the well-known radical Deputy.
Rouvier declared that he had nothing to
add to what he had said yesterday. When
he asked Baron Reinach if he had com
mitted any criminal offenses or bad bribed
any Senators or Deputies, the Baron re
plied: "No, I nave realized mine profit*,
which I have shared with certain friends."
Clemenceau testified that Rouvier asked
him to sea ban on account of the desperate
9 ate of mind into which Baron Reiuach
had been driven oy the charges brought
against him by various newspapers. 1 lie
witness did not know why Reinach applied
to Ilerz to have the press attack's
stopped. When witness and Baron Reiunch
left the house of Constant tie last-named
gentleman having denied the instigation of
the newspaper^' agitation, the Barm had
said: "I am lost." _

fi.l letter, la which lie refuses to appear

IT WILL BE BUILT.
Canal Promoters Greatly
Encouraged.
MORGAN MAKES A SPEECH.
This Congress May Not Act, but There
Is a Belief That the New
One Will.
Special to The Morning Cam.
Washington", Dec. 14.— The Nicaragua
canal project received attention nt both
wings of the Capitol to-day. The Shertna*
bill was considered by the Senate Commit
tee on Foreign Relations, and several slight
changes suggested by Mr. Sherman were
agreed to. Further consideration was then
postponed until the next regular. meeting of
the committee.
The chief interest, however, was on the
House side, where Senator Morgan deliv
ered an argument advocating the early comp
letion of tl.e- canal by Government aid.
Morgan spoke for two hours, and the com
mittee-room was well filled v*iih enthusi
astic Nicaragua canal promoters.- The
speaker was thoroughly conversant with
Mis subject. lie ha; always been a close
student of mutters affecting foreign and
interstate commerce and has taken special
Interest in the Nicaragua canal project.
Morgan's views were Riven at the special
request of the committee, He said that me
g;eat importance of the proposed work was
too well appreciated to call for extended
comment. He dwelt at length upon the
vast benefit that would result to the- coast
wise trad* of the country. The trip around
Capo Ho: 11 is too slow for these day, and
it is dancerous also. Morgan detailed the
events t!:.t have transpires in the history
of the caua! and explained at length the
financial propositions taat form the most
important feature of the- enterprise, includ
ing the proposed guarctitee by the Govern
ment of the United States of 5100,000,000 in
bonds.
lie said that the Sherman bill, which was
now being conslderrd by the Senate Com
mittee on Foreign Reiation?, included this
proposition. He expected that the Senate
committee wonii be ready to report Sher
man's bill ;ior ,ow or very soon there
after. Certain amendments were to be
proposed Unit could not be divulged at th:
time. Mr/Morgan declared that he was ii
no sense a personal champion of the bill.
His , -ate— Alabama — was greatly Inter
ested in the commerce between the Atlantic
and Pacific ocean*. He gaTe a statistical
comparison of th« 9 business transacted by
the Suez and Snolt Me. Marie ennuis and
the immense volume of business that would
be transacted by the proposed Nicaragua
canal.
Considerable interest was evinced in the
financial aspect of the canal scheme by
those who heard Mr. Morgan speak, and It
was evident from the inquiries made that
there would be stronz opposition to the
pending legislation. This bill, it was said,
would give the promoters of the canal, alter
it hud been paid lor, the entire balance of
the $190,000,000 0f capital stock Wt alter
deducting the sums that had been paid for
concessions and for other expense*. '!!•>
remainder of stock «cu!tl amount to S7i\
-000.000 or $50,000,000, or more, at its par
value.
Senator M r^nn said, however, that the
canal proDle were willing, should the
Govornnient guarantee the bonds fur the
construction of tup canal, to turn the S7O,-
OnO.OGO or £50,000.00Q of stock over to the
Governmeut, to Us held as it* own propert y.
lie said that Nicaragua favored the United
States against any other nation an ! wanted
it to build the canal. The Nicaragua Gov
ernment had already granted this couutry
valuable concessions for the pttrpeee. Great
Britain had stood by and seen the treaty
Biadr, after which she tried to get the same
concessions an 1 succeeded in making a
treaty subordinate to that with IheUaited
State;. In making that treaty Great Britain
had acknowledged mat the treaty of l&yj-^
--the Clayton-Bulwcr treaty — had bceu aban
doned.
At the clo«e cf Mr. Morgan's remarks the
committee adj taraed.
The committee of five sent here by the
New Orleans convention met to-ni^iu at the
Arlington Hotel. They talked over the
situation and were apparently very much
encouraged over the bright prospects for tie
bill's p.issage. !".'" I

GEARY WAS NEGLIGENT.
But He Will Make an Effort to Atone
for It. ,
Wasijin-gton, Dec 14 — The Committee
on Interstate and Foicign Commerce was
given an hour this morning for the consid
eration of its bills. The San Fri\nci«c»
members were hoping that Representative
Cutting's bill appropriating $50,000 for a
new C'ubtooj-Uouso boat, to ye used m a
boarding- vessel, would be cons dered. as it
wa« one of the first bills reported from tho
Interstate and Foreign Commerce Commit
tee at the last session. Representative
Geary is a member of that committee, but
he neglected to call the bill up for considera
tion, consequently it will probably fail of
passage, as the committee may not be called
again this session. Mr. Cutliuc wil! try to
secure recognition from the Speaker to
call up his bill by unanimous consent. Its
passage would be of great beneht to the
shipping interests of the bay. Tb« old
II irtlej has seen twenty years of service,
and is about worn out. Mr. Cutting's bill
authorized the construction of a boardinj:

SEEMS A HOPELESS TASK.
Commissioner Morgan on the Educa
tion of Indians.
Washington, Dec. 14.— Indian Commis
sioner Morgan sent to the Secretary of the
Interior to-day a letter atatinu.thata crisis
hsd.bpen reached in the work carried on by
the Indian Cilice iv the education of Indian
children.
He says the cfSeei9 helpless to further
enforce the regulations made in accordance
with the act of lfcl<u, and he says the fact; in
the case ere before the Secretary fur his
information. General Morgan gives the de
tails of several recent cases where the au
thority of the Gnvernmeut, as represented by
the Indian atrtnts. had been openly defied.
Morgan say* he does uut believe in using
violence, but he certainly does think the
Government should show the Indians that it
It in earnest in the matter. He is of opinion
that all that would be necessary would be a
show of force. The Commissioner makes
no specific recommendations.

on the Question, "Shall the bill pass?"
w lion Sanders demanded an explanation M
the part of the friends of the bill of their
reasons why it should pas- 1 . He explained
Mi own understanding of the matter. One
of his objections to the bill was that it
rested on the imputation thai the judicial
and executive departments of the Gov
ernment had been for many years past
guilty of wrongdoing in the premises. His
own proposition was that even if the ex
ecutive and judicial departments of the
Government had declared the original
grant valid it still would not hive found
the remotest foundation fur such provis
ions as were contained in the pending bill.
He thought, therefore, the Senators should
be grateful to the President for having re
called their attention to the bill. .'-•*'-
The bill was debated up to - o'clock, at
which time Uia in rning hour expired and

urges the members of the new party to

possible.^ any; Populist member voting for
either^ a Republican or Democrat. Tau
leneckiays: M Th« great question now is,
What" will the People's party legislators do
when it comes to balloting fur Senators?
Will they be big enough for the position
they occupy ?,*,.Will they remain true to the
people who elected them, or 4 will they dis
ari.ee iheir States and send men to the
United States Senate with the tinge or.
bribery attached to their certificates of elec
tion as the S.tat« :of Illinois did two years
ago?i Any one who has not pone through a
contest of that kind does not knew what he
will have to bear. The future of our move
ment rests with them." They can either
make or destroy. the party, but it seems to
mo any one with the fate of Moore and
Cockrell before him will never turn back on
the people who elected him/
A PAPAL LEGATE.
Cardinal Satolli states the Occasion
of His Mission.
Baj/timoue, Dec. 14.— There has just
been issued for private circulation among
the Bishop* of the Catholic Church in the
United States an abstract of the minute* of
the late conference of Archbishop* in New
York. It states that Monslgnoi Satolli in
formed the Metropolitans that he had been
missioned by the Holy Father to speak
to them in his nauio on the question of
Catholic education. He then read and ex
plained fourteen propositions which he laid
before the Archbishops for the purpose of
finally settling the school question and in
dicating the means that should be adopted
foe imparting religious instruction to Catlio
-1 c children.
Alter having declared that this statement
was made in the name of the Pope, SatolW
wont on to say that ha had been charged,
moreover, by the Tope, to Inform the
Metropolitans that as it had been customary
with tli4 Holy See to aj>D~>int an apostolic
delegate to reside permanently in the coun
try where the hierarchy was well estab
lished nail religion flourishing. It was
tli« Pope's heartfelt desire that now a per
intaont apostolic delegation should be estab
lished in ih« United States, with the con
currence of the most reverend Archbishops.
Certain modifications were suggested to
tin, and Satolli explained that the docu
ment represented the mind of the Pipe,
wfrieli aid cot admit of discussion, but that
the style and expressions were his (Salotli'f.),
and that he would be happy [to make in
th "iv any modifications the assembled pre
lates deemed best.

elected to (hat position.
Rome. Dec. 14.— Much irritation exists nt
the Vatican on account of the attacks made
by certain American Catholic journals on
the person and mission of Monsignor
Satolii. It is learned, as regards the oppo
sition made to the policy of the Pope, that
the Vatican may cause an inquiry to be
made into its origin. .The Holy Father, is
desirous that his agents shall be respected,
and that His views of the pacification of
church troubles in the United States shall
be followed. If there be any need of if,
the Pore will, in this instancr, also take
severe measures with those who oppose his
intervention. It Is believed here that the
Vatican knows whence the| hostile criticism
proceeds. •
} EDERATION OF LABOR.
The Body Is Not Inclined to Favor
Free Trade.
rmT.AiM.i.pniA, Dec. 14.— At the meeting
of the American Federation of Labor tins
morning the Committee on resolutions re
ported a plan to create national or inter
untional unions wherever seven unions of
any, particular craft have been formed.
President Oosspats thought it would not
always be practicable, owing to the weak
ness of new union.-*. The debato on the
question was suspended to listen to the a I
dress of ex-Senator Blair of New Hamp
shire on hi* proposed improvement of the
common-school system.
A special commit toe was appointed for
the consideration r.f methods for limiting to
their proper functions the military ant
judicial powers, which, it was resolved, had
been used in contravention uf law and good
government dining th« recent labor encoun
ters. Another resolution on the same sub
ject was reported favorably, providing that,
as the strike, and boycott had failed as
weapons of organized labor, a campaign of
education should bo inaugurated by tho
federation and the irresistible power of tho
ballot be arrayed in the struggle for union
supremacy. This was referred to the same
special committee, together with others,
aimed against the military.
A large number of other resolutions were
introduced, among them the following: For
the prohibition of Japanese immigration;
asking for a Congressional investigation of
the late Coenr d'Alcne mining troubles;
favoring the opening of sehoolhouses for
public meetings, and for the exposition of
the lAbor problem in the public schools.
A brrez* over the tariff was provoked by
a negative report on the resolution astinc
for an extra session of Congress for the
enactment of free-trade legislation. A num
ber of communications if nfliltated bodies
were read, ami the convention adjourned
until to-morrow. \-

LIGHT SKIRMISHING
Nothing Will Come of the
Conference.
SILVER MEN READY TO ACT.
It WHI Not Be Easy to Get a Free-
Coinage Proposition Before
the House.
Fpeclal to The Mountnt. Cai.i.
Washington-. Dec. 14.— The silver and
anti-silver men in t*ie H<<use are engaged in
a little light skirmishing in anticipation of
the falliirn of the Brussels International
monetary conference, from which the mem
bers say they expect nothing. Each side
is now endeavoring to learn somedtin,: of
the purposes and views of tlie other side.
Talks with the free-silver men and avowed
opponents of the present Sherman law
show, it is believed, to be unlikely that
anything will be done at this session, either
in tlie way of the repeal of t!ie Sherman
law or the enactment of more radical silver
legislation.
.This morning the House Coinage Com
mittee held its regular meeting. •The day
was set for the consideration of the Wil
liams bill to repeal the Sherman law. Wil
liams, it* author, was not present and the
bill went over. Then there were some very
Informal and general discussions of the sil
ver question. The proposition was put
forward in a rather indefinite" shape-thai
an opportunity be given In the House for a
vote on the repeal of the Sherman law.
The free-coinage men were not unwilling
that this should be done, but in order to
preserve their present parliamentary ad
vantage they suggested that the method by
which to accomplish this was to take up
the Bland bill, which at the last session was
finally displaced by a few dilatory motions
after the Speaker found it necessary to cast
the deciding vote on the hill.
Bland and Pierce, leaders of -the free
silver section »1 the Democratic party in
the iloiise, expressed their willingness- to
give the other side an opportunity to offer
the Williams and other bills as amendments
to the Bland bill, provided on their part the
anti-silver men would agree to let the
House come to a vole on the question of the
free coinage of silver and other proposi
tions more favorable to the extended use of
silver currency than the present law. Tracy
and Taylor of Illinois, without committing
themselves, were inclined to this view. The
committee adjourned without action.
However, it is thought that if the commit
tee was to agree unanimously upon some
recommendation to the House the sup
port of the Rules Committee would be ob
tained to a resolution making the silver bill
a special order, but nothing in the past his
tory of the committee warrants the conclu
sion that It will be able to act harmoniously
and as a unit on the question of the consid
eration of silver legislation in the House.
OPPOSED TO CHANGE.
The Bimetallic League Wants Noth
ing but Free Coinage.
Chicago, Dec. 14.— The executive com
mittee of the American Bimetallic League
to-day adopted resolutions protesting against
the repeal of the act of July, 1800. stating
that it would leave our monetary system
just as it was under the demonetizing act of
1873, and deprive bimetallism of nil the
advantages gained in twenty years of earn
est effort. Any change in. the existing law,
unless in furtherance of tree coinage. Is un
equivocally opposed.
AS GREAT PHILANTHROPISTS.
Leading Railway Presidents Appear
in a New Role.
Washington, Dec. 14. — A number of
prominent railroad men, inciudin,,- Mr.
Depew of the New York Central, President
Roberts of the Pennsylvania, President
lugaiis of the Uig Four and Chairman
Walker of the trunk lines, were before the
Senate Committee ori Interstate Commerce
to-day to advocate the passage of the
amendment to the interstate commerce law,
introduced by Cullom, to modify the exist
ing law so as to authorize railroad com
panies to form pools under the supervision
of the Interstate^ Commerce Commission
and wipe out the penal clause of punish
ment prescribed.
All the gentlemen named above urged
that the great Majority of the railroads of
the country were in favor of the proposed
amendment. Depew, in the course of his
remarks, snid there were eight roads be
tween New York and Chicago, but for all
the purposes of the public there was but one.
If an ironclad rule of equal rates un.ier
equal conditions of time was established,
the New York Central mid Pennsylvania
would do eight-tenths of the business and
the other roads would go into bankruptcy.
Trie law preventing rooling was creating
trusts. If the law continued in force five
years longer Dcpew thought that there
would not be an independent business man
in any of the large cities of the Uuited
StaUs. This miserable condition of affairs
was being brought about by a law intended
to prevent trusts. Under the proposed
amendment the roads woutd be authorized
to make contracts upon a busiuess basis and
could agree upon rates which would always
be the same to the public.
In discussing existing condit T ons Mr. Dp
pew said that it would soon be impossible
for manufacturers to exist except at ter
minal points.
Ingalls spoke to the same effect. If tlie
amendment passed, said lie, it would not
result in an increase of rates, but in equal
rates, ami in many cases it would operate
to reduce rates.
fIURDERED HIS RIVAL.
An Idaho nining Camp the Scene of

Lkwistox, Idaho, D c. 14.— News has
been received from Warrens, a mining
camp 165 miles distant, that John Wilkius

house on the following moruiug he would
kill liim.
Wilkins was not to be bluffed, however,

snowshoes next day. Wilkins not appear
ing in the evening a party went in search of
him and found Ma dead body in front of
Schiller's house. .Schiller was arrested.

THE SAN JUAN PLACERS.
Reliable Information From the New

Flagstaff, Ariz., Dec. 14. — The ex
citement ever tlie gold fields on the San
Juan River in Utah, 173 miles northeast of
this place, is as groat as at any time since
the discovery became known. Four outfits
left here to-day. There has been as yet no
reliable information as to the extent and
richness of the discovery. The fact that no
one who goes returns leads many to be
lieve that jrold exists in unlimited quantities.
No one as yet has seen any nuggest from
the new placers.
There are about 1000 people on the ground,
for whose maintenance there are no pro
visions, except such as are taken in by in
dividuals. It takes from twelve to fifteen
days to make the round trip from either
Flagstaff or Winslow, the nearest points to
the new' Eldorado. Reliable news is ex

THE DONAHUE ROAD.
Possibility of Its Passing Into the
Hands of New Owners.
There is a stroug probability of an early
sale of the San FraueiSL-o and North Pacific
Railroad.
A week ago upon motion in the Superior
Court of Sau Rafael the order of sale of the
personal property of the late James XL Don
ahue, consisting of railway stock of the
railroad, was vuca^cd and a new petition
filed which will come up for hearing to
rn orrow.
The legatees under this will are, is said,
very anxious and determined to sell tins
railway stock and procure their legacies.and
it may be safely concluded that the San.
Francisco and North Pacitie Railroad will
be in the hands of new owners before the
end of January, 1593.
There are several syndicates looking
sharply at thu road, which pay.* 6 per cent
on $6,000,000, and it is now thought b«yooJ
all doubt that the stock will brine $20 per
share. ' "
