The Hon. Juan Manuel Floret, governor
of the state of Durango, announces teut
he has discovered what he believes to be
the famous mountain of gold, the legend
of which is a household story in every
part of Mexico. He says that, whether
or not the discovery it that of the lost
mountain, it it ono of the largest and
richest in the ttate of Durango, as has
been demonstrated by explorations of
numerous veins of gold, allot which con
verge into the supposed gold mountain. 1
The governor has not divnlged the lo

Chicaoo, Feb. 8. Mifs C. 8. Sickles,
who baa been among the Indians in the
interest of the worlds fair, says of the
Pine Ridge trouble:
"Despite what the telegraphic reports
say to the contrary, the event of a few
dayt ago it only the prelude to an out
break w hich will have far-reaching re
sults. The warriors of Pine"1iidgR are
stealthily and systematically organizing
under tuch men at Red Clond, who,
while keeping their persons far from the
scene of action, are stirring np the feel
ings of their followers with a view to
bringing about bloodshed. At a matter
of fact, the disaffection which resulted
in the rebellion of tan years ago has
never been checked. It was simply
suppressed for the time and it sure to
break out again with added force. The
ghost songs are again being sung as
meant of organixation, and in every
camp is the apparent hostile spirit
which showed itself two years ago
againct every white person."
Mitt Pickles tayt the disaffection it
due in a measure to the dishonesty of
certain officials, against whom tome sen
sational charges will be brought In the

Ottawa, Ont., Feb., 7. The announce
ment from Washington that Canadian
cattle are to be scheduled by the United
States caused no little excitement among
government foltoweis, who begin to
realize that President Harrison meant
husince in Lis retaliation against Can
ada. It is geuerolly agreed among poli
ticians that it will be only second to the
McKinley bill in the effect on Canada,
for the Washington government has by
this step absolutely placed the Canadian
farmer in a position of most serious ila
advantage. Hemmed In by the tariff
and now deprived of any possibility of
sending bis cattle to hit neureHt market,
for no farmer could afford to bear the
expense if a 90-day quarantine, the
Cadadian agriculturist it indeed in a
miserable plight. The dispatch said it
was decided to quarantine the Canadian
cattle at Buffalo 00 dayt because of

Nxw Yoac, Feb. 8. A local paper in
the morning will tay that the United
Statet treasury it practically empty of
gold and the New York banks areobliged
to come to the relief of the government.
It is a serious situation that confronts
the secretary of the treasury and tbe
financiers of the country. The drain of
American gold coin to Europe hat at
laNt exhausted the resources of the gov
ernment, and private stores in the vaults
of the banks are drawn upon to tide over
the emergency. The secret has been
well kept, but of the 13,500,000 in Amer
ran gold that wat shipped to Europe iust
Saturday $2,000,000 was loaned to the
tubtreasurr by the banks of this city.
The entire supply of gold in tbe vaults
of the United States treasury today is
reduced to f 108,176,938. Of this only
(9,170.933 it free gold; the remainder,
1100,000,000, must be by law held in the
treasury for the redemption of a like
amount of legal tender notes which have
been issued against it. Nor hat the
drain of gold stopped. There were sgree
mentt by foreign bunkers today for the
shipment of 13.000,000 in gold next Sat
urday. Other shipments will probably
be heard from tomorrow and it is the
impression in Wall street today that
thit weekt exports whl reach about f5,
000.000. This would leave ouly a little
over $3,000,000 of free gold in the treas
ury, probably hardly sufficient for a sin
gle week's supply. Since Monday the
actual short stetliog rates of exchange
have been up from 4.87.t to f 4.83, lest
commission. George G. Williams, pres
ident of the New York Clearing-house
sssociation, and also president of the
Chemical National bank, spent a great
deal of time yesterday arranging for a
further loan of gold to the treasury de
partment. He went to several banks
and appealed that for the public good
they should join in contributing of their
gold reserves enough to keep up the sup
ply of free gold in the treasury to meet
all demands until steps can be taken to
otherwise meet tbe emergency. It is
understood that the appeals were sue
cessful in all instances. Four banks
had already advanced $2,000,000 of gold
last Friday to help meet the demands
for Saturday's exports.

Paris, Feb. 9. Panama sentences
have just been delivered, as follows:
Ferdinand de Isfeps, five years' im
prisonment and 5000 francs fine; Char
les de I-eswps, fine years and 3000 francs ;
Fontane and Cottu, two years and 3000
francs each ; Eiffel, two years and 20,000
The sentences have caused a profound
sensation, especially that of Ferdinand
do Lessps. The judgement finds them
guilty of swindling and a breach of trust.
Cincinnati, Feb. 9. The llold.n
hotel, at 2V Went Fifth street, was
completely gutted by fire early this
morning, and four ront were burned
to dent h. A number of persons were
pticked In the building, which was very
lurge, and several families of Polish
Jews had rooms there. The dead are
Fred Detxel. waiter : Alln-rt (iraw, yurd-
mat: ; Joseph Mains, and a waiter
named iiottleii). wraw warned thorn
mates of the hotel, but was unable to
escape himself, and was burned to death.
It Is estimated that visitors from
abroad to the world's fair will bring
$300,000,000 to this country during the
present year, and at leaht $l(i0,000.000
alii be kept at home by Americans riot
going abroad. The profits of theeipo
eition to the people of the United States
will therefore be $400,000,000, or about
$5 per capita directly added to the cir
culating medium. The effect of this
addition to the cash assets of the nation
cannot fail to make itself felt on the
biiiinest of the country, and the effect
will be beneficial. -

Watar sUrack at tha Depth af BOO Feat
aa tha Colorado DaaeM.
We learn from T. B. Wilkinson, agent
ot the Southern Pacific railroad at this
place, tayt the Yuma (A. T.) Sentinel,
that success hat at last crowned the ef
forts of the company to obtain artesian
water on tbe desert. On Tneeday last,
when the great well at Walker's station,
106 milet wett of Yuma, had reached a
depth of 500 feet, a bountiful stream of
excellent water wat ttruck, which in
stantly rose four feet above the surface
and ran off down the desert as freely as
if it had always done so. Such was the
flow of water that the company was
obliged at once to protect lis road bed
from being washed away. Passengers
passing by yesterday and the day before
say that the stream filled a good-sized
irrigation ditch. The water it clear,
cold and excellent for drinking and cook-
Engineer W. B. Story, jr., and other
officials of the company consider this aa
one of the most promising and valuable
discoveries of the company for years, as
it settles the question as to securing
artesian water irrigation and other pur
poses on the great desert adjacent to In-
dio and Salton. It also confirms the
opinion of a gentleman who wat in
Yuma two yeart ago, who had been con
nected with the artesian well system of
the English government in India for
thirteen years, and who said:
"I im confident that an abundant
supply of artesian water can be had at
almost any point In the Salton desert or
In the section lying adjacent to Yuma,
and you will not have to bore 1,000 feet
to get it."
The Walters well la eight feet In dia
meter, and the water rises from three to
four feet above the surface. The com
pany will not prosecute the work on its
proposed wells in other sections. If it
proves that good water can be had in
other sections of the desert, it will put
tlua ditch and canal builders on their
mettle to compete with this supply of
water for irrigation purposes.
Cholera Uerms KerWlrylnf.
IjMDOif, Feb. 12. From St. Peters
burg comes the news that ten persons
have died of cholera. With the ccssa
tion of frost the Marseilles people are
trying hard to cover np their deud and
to quiet the fear of the living. But the
wont of all, as directly affecting Amer
ica, is the news from Hamburg. In the
suburb of Altona a prisoner in jail has
just died, and five other cases are being
clooely watched. The port of Hamburg
Itself Is allowed to escape. On board
the steamers K.cso and Australia four
sailors were stricken with the disease.
The weather is moderating all over the

Homoi.ulo, Feb. 1. The mere pres
ence of sailors from the Boston, now
that peace it restored and business Is
going on smoothly, is a thorn in the
flesh of the native, likewise the mem
bers of the diplomatic corps. There is a
clause in the treaty entered into by the
United States, Ureat Britain and France
relative to the landing of armed forces
by either of these powers. Twice the
British minister resident has called
upon President Dole in relation to the
matter, and both times he was assured
that the force would soon go aboard the
cruiser. This was more than a week
ago. The troops are still here, and the
following letter on the subject has been
received by President Dole :
British Legation, )
Honolulu, Jan. 30, 18)3.(
Sib: On two occasions, when I had
an interview with your excellency, I
called your attention to the continued
presence on shore of a naval force from
tbe United States thip Boston, and I
understood your excellency to tay that
it would thortly return to that vessel.
It hat not, however, yet done to. I see
in the newspapers that the Hawaiian
provisional government has a regular
force of 103 men and officers, beside
three volunteer companies and a large
body of police force. I should think
this force more than sufficient to main
tain law and order and to protect life
and property, and I am, therefore, con
strained to again ask your excellency
why this foreign force is not recalled.
Your obedient servant,
Jamks Hay Woochoisb,
II. B. M. Minister Resident.

Hawaiian Provisional Government.
The relations between President Dole
and the British minister resident are the
