a per capita consumption of less than one

last century, when our population was a
little over 7tj.300.0u0, we mined nearly T0,
000,000 tona of coal, or more than three and

while our population In 1900 waa not quite
double that of 1870, the coal production was

Wealth Is power. Gold Is the standard

Wherever there la found a wealthy nation,
there la progress and advancement. Such
Is the United States with her ninety-four
billions of wealth, and countless gold In
her treasury. One of her chief sources of
security Is the money metals burled In her
mountains, which the energy and toll of
her Industrious and venturesome men are
dally bringing forth, to enrich the people
and to make possible further resulting
achievements for the betterment of man
kind. Oold discoveries are the advance guards
of civilisation. They are attended by phe
nomenal tides of emigration. Multitudes
or people or ail clashes and all languages.
In all countries and In all ages, have left
their old homes and wandered, amid hard
ships and dangers, over lends and over seas
to the uttermoxt parts of the earth where
the money metals have been found. In
their seal, when necessary, the sword has

- To us, as cltsens of the United States,
the discovery of gold in California presents
a more Interesting series tit social and
political events and more wonderful ma
terial and Industrial changea. In the co
lonial period of our history the money,
metals were scarce. The cheap and bulky
and inconvenient devlcea at times resorted
to to represent money made trade difficult
and commerce almost 4m possible. It seems
surprising to us now, but was strange
then, that such statesmen as Edmund Ran
dolph, James Madison and John Dickin
son suggested to the federal convention
In 1787 to Insert a clause In the constitu
tion to measure the salarlea of the presi
dent and senator by the value of so
many bushela of wheat. From that period
to the discovery of gold in Ce'lfamle In
1847, a period of sixty years, the aggre
gate output of gold In the United Hiatus
waa limited to J4,0n0.000, and the growth
of the population . from about 1,000,000 to

when gold began to be turned up like clods
of earth or washed from sands deposited
by mountain torrents civilisation began to
sweep over the plains, the Rockies, the
Sierras and down the valley of the Sacra
mento to tha sea. Soon the Callfornlana
boasted while they were taking out iw,
000,000 of gold In 1849 and 166,000,000 In IHdS
that her valleys laughed with fertility, that
culture climbed her mountains and that the
commerce of the world waa represented In
her harbors. On and on went the changes,
until each rising sun now greets the faces
of 20,000,000 of people west of the Missouri
liver, e prosperous and happy and Indus
trial people, with farms and villages and
towns and cities, with school and col
leges and universities, with museums of art
and evidences of refinement everywhere,
an empire that has moved the center of
the country's social, commercial and polit
ical gravity many decrees weatward and
presents untold possibilities for the future.
The gold hunters and that vast throng
of aturdy pioneers who peopled the western
coast were men who hsd endured Inde
scribable hardships as they slowly tour
neyed through the almost Impassable fast
nesses and frowning canyons of the
Rockies. They breathed the air of free
dom from the mountains and were In
spired by the ever restless waters of the
I'aclflc as an emblem of liberty. These
men believed that s'avery and nature were
at war. and in 10 brought California Into
the union as a free state. The equilibrium
between the north and aouth, between the
free states and ths slave states, which the
southern statesmen had so long endeav
ored to preserve, was thus forever broken.
Chaagres After California Discovery.
Then followed a chain of resulting cir
cumstances. In every link of which may
be seen evidences of forces which the
searchers for the money metals had di
rectly or Indirectly put In motion, and
which, coupled with American high Ideals
of clttsenshlp, worked out wonderful re
sults for the betterment of humanity and
the strengthening of the union.
With slavery forbidden within the con
fines of California, Its lodgment anywhere
a'onc the Pacific coast line became an im
possibility. There eooa fallowed the south
ern agitation for an extension or enlarge
ment of alave territory and the repeal of
the Missouri Compromise. The north and
south threw down the gauntlet and fought
a political oiler
for the poasesslon of Kan
sas. ,. The lovers of manhood rights, from
New England to the mining eampa of the
west. Joined hands In tha struggle. Higher
Ideals of citlsenshlp again prevailed and
another free state was added to the union.
The political strife now assumed national
proportions. The democratlo convention
at Charleston witnessed the wrecking of
that party over the slavery question and
which split It asunder on sectional lines.
Thousands of people with fevered brains
and throbbing hearts warmly greeted ' a
republican president as he stood on the
portico of the capitol announcing an ad.

the south was alarmed and doubted and

Another Christian was killed yesterday,
the Turkish soldiers making common cause
with the Mussulmans during the attack on

been pillaged, one French shop was com
pletely destroyed and the French residents
are becoming terrified at these depreda

and sought refuge at the French college,
where beween 400 and 600 refugees are now
The American naval commander, it is
asserted tn the dispatches received here,
prepared to land marines at Beyroot, but
the foreign consuls believed the step In
advisable at this time, as It might lead to
an Increase of the .excitement prevailing
and precipitate a crisis.
The vail ot Beyroot has proven himself
to be weak and Incompetent to deal with
tha situation and therefore Naxlm Pasha,
the valt of Damascus, was ordered to as
sume the direction of affairs In Beyroot.
Naxlm Pasha, who has arrived at his post,
la displaying great energy. The consuls
express the hope that he wilt be able to
stem the disorder. The nearest French
war ship to Beyroot Is In the Gulf of Volo,
Greece, but unless Naxlm Pasha speedily
restores order and completely safeguards
French citizens, France will act decisively
by dlspachtng war ships from Toulon.

that through it American Interests, or

.This fact, coupled with the assurance of
