THE treasury's cash balance is
growing. This is a highly encourag
ing condil ion of things, but we no
tice that the democratic papers have
forgotten to mention it.
THERE is not one democrat in five
that believes Cle eland can carry
New York this year, but they are
bound to nominate him and are
willing to take all risks, as the con
dition of things forces them to.
New York has often knocked out
the west in democratic national con
ventions, and it will do the same
this year. It is only in the republi
can national convention that the
'good western man" has a chance.
The inventer of the age, Mr. Edi
son, has invented a machine that
will project a torpedo two miles un
der waler and keep it there ready to
be exploded at the pleasure of the
man in the ship from where it was
Chicago wants more war vessels

war should ever be declared between
the United States and Kngland that
the great city of Ihe west would be

America's greatest inventor, or some
other inventive geuious will have

that will lay the modern implements

AMERICAN TIN INDUSTRY.
Twenty-two thousand pounds of
tin is not a great deal, but it was
enough to make the London dealers
in the metal telegraph to New York
to lower the price of foreign tin lest
the American product should in
jure the business. This 22,000
pounds of tin was the first ship
ment from the Tetuescal mines, in
this state, received in New York on
Wednesday, and ordered by the
consigness to be sold to dealers in
small lots as samples of an article
which in a short time will supply
the. American market.
There is only one smelter at work
at the Temescal mines at the pres
ent time, and the output is necessa
rily limited, but as soon a9 addi
tional machinery can be put up the
product of tin will be greatly in
creased. The quality of this first
shipment of California tin is said to
be fully equal to that of the best
tin from the Straits Settlements,
and the price will reach that ob
tained for this grade of imported
It is asserted on good authority
that the deposits of tin ore in the
Temescal mines are very extensive,
and that there is a prospect of a
great output of the metal. If this
be true it will not take long for the
California tin to make a decided
impress on the imports of the
foreign metal. Our annual import
of tin is valued at about $ 7,000,000,
so 22,000 pounds of the metal at 20 or
52 cents a pound does not cut much
of a figure, or rather would not if
this were the beginning and ending
of it; but because it is believed
there is plenty more where this
came from it exercises an immedi
ate effect upon the market.
This shipment of tin will discour
age the tin plate liars more than
ever, if such a thing be possible.
It has not escaped attention that
the democratic house has been per
fectly mum on the tin and tin ptate
schedules of the McKinley bill, and
now there will be less likelihood
ilian ever of tlieir being touched
this ht'Huon. San Francisco Chronicle.
A FL'.jRID-a PHENOMENON.
We clip the following from the
Mr. J-.diior: 1 arrived here about
.-.; weeks ago and have since vis
iwd on sevn.il occasions the most
rare and peculiar phenomenon.
t here is a pvaine within three
link's of this place thai is fiiieeti
miles in lei.glii, with an average
widih of live miles. Twelve yenis
ao it filled with water to a depth of
eight to iwemy ieet, varying ac
cording to high and low ground.
This waier siood undisturbed for
this twelve gears' space of lime un
til last August, when it suddenly
disappeared entirely in two days,
leaving two small holes of waler,
not exceeding ten acres area, and a
few ponds here and thereof sues
too insignificant o mention.
The soil here is principally sand
uuderlaid at varying depths by
very soft sand and limestone.
There is some Hint at great depths.
Near ihe location where Ihe water
is thought to have made iis exit the
country is liierally clotted with
holes, varying from ten to foriy feet
in depth; the sides are steep and
precipitous. These holes are com
monly known here as sinks, aud
a-e sometimes formed in a single
For days afer the escape of the
water from this prairie the stench
of piiii id fish was intolerable.
The farmers hauled them off in
wagons for fertilizers.
On the prairie anywhere turtle
shells can be seen, with here and
there the skeleton of some unfortu
nate alligator that has been killed
by some marksman or by some
Gainesville, Fla., March 8, 1892.
WHAT are the tin plate howlers
going tD do now? Twenty-two
thousand pounds of block tin was
shipped to New York from the Te
mescal mines in California the other
day and put up on the market, and
the result was that immediately the
tin combine of England telegraphed
orders to put down prices. The time
is not far distant when the only re
maining article of general con
sumption whose price has advanced
since the passage of the McKinley
bill will be withdrawn from the list
This shipment is only a beginning.
The work still on a small scale, only
one smelter having been as yet put
in operation, but in a short time the
output will have a very decided in
fluence on the market. In a few
months the Dakota tin mines will
begin to make a showing at Nigger
Hill and Harney's Peak.
The wisdom of him who journey
eth is known by the line he selects;
the judgment of the man who takes
the "Burlington Route" to the
cities of the east, the south, and the
west, is never impeached. The in
