PRODUCTION Report of the Geological Sur vey for the Calendar Year. INCREASE OVER THE PAST YEAR Tbe Quantities and Values of the Varl ous Products In tb Min eral Kingdom, Washington, June 80. Tbe mineral products of tbe United States for the calendar year of 1805 are reviewed at length in the mineral resouroei report of tbe United States geological survey. The report, which was compiled by Dr. David T. Day, obief of division, shows tbe total value of the product! to be 1611,795,200. This itandi againBt a production valued at f 537, 808,694 for 1984. This is an inorease of 180,000,000. The report in summarizing condi tions, says: "Tbe general inorease ii a long step toward recovery from the depression to which tbe mineral industry, like all others, has been subjected. The total value is slightly less than tbe greatest we have known, which was over $048, 000,000 in 1893. In terms of quanti ties produced, instead of value re oeived, 1805 is greater. In other words, prioei are lower. Considering the record of the total value in these reports linoe 1880, the inorease, whioh is from 1360,819,000 to 1611,796,390 ii lignifloant, and the average for these sixteen years gives a fair approxi mation of what our normal mineral porduot should have been half-way be tween these dates, or in 1888. "Tbe United States shared in the general inorease in gold production, the inorease being shown in nearly all the gold-producing states, but ooming principally from Cripple Creek and other new camps in Colorado. Tbe gain in the quantity of petroleum and especially tbe phenomenal increase in its price, wai one of the great features of the year. The steady inorease in gold products sinoe 1892 was kept up duinrg 1896, increasing from 1,018,816 ounces in 1894, to 3,378,629 ounces in 1896, the valuation of the latter being 149,600,000. "Sliver production fell to 47,0001000 ounoei from 49,601,122 ounoes in 1894, with coining values respectively of $60,766,800 and $640,000,000. "Copper, domestio ore production, followed the upward tendency of the other metals and increased over 30, 000,000 pounds, or 5,600,000. The rapidly increasing produot of line, which was oheoked in 1893 and 1894, was resumed. The deolining tendenoy in iron and steel production in 1894 wai ohanged in 1896 to one of the most remarkable increases in the production of pig-iron in the history of the Indus try of tbe United States. It rose from 6,667,888 long tons in 1894 to 9,446, 808 long toni in 1895, or nearly 43 per cent This is tbe largest produot ever attained in this country, the nearest ap proach to it being in 1890.

Fire Destroys tbe Great Lumber Kstab llsbuient In Portland. Portland, Or., June 29. The entire plant of tbe Willamette Steam Mill. Lumbering & Manufacturing Company, better known as Weidler'i mill, waa destroyed by fire yesterday afternoon. I Tbe loss ii approximately $160,000,' and is covered by insurance to tbe smount of $40,000, distributed in small policies among several local agents. Tbe origin of the fire was accidental,, and, owing to the extremely dry con-, dltion of tbe mill and yard, iti spread wai so rapid that nothing oould be saved. Robert Mays, an employe of the mill, haa not been seen since the fire started, and it is believed by bi fellow-workmen that he was overcome while endeavoring to make his escape, and has been burned to death. A scene of indesoribable panio and oonf uslon followed tbe breaking out of tbe fire. Almost instantly the flames enveloped the buildings, leaping from roof to roof and from one lumber pile to another so rapidly that it was im possible to follow them. Tbe men employed in and about the 'mills nar rowly esoapetr suffocation before tbey oould reach the 'Tree air. G. M. Keene, a sawfiler, who was engaged in a shop near the rear of the mill, was imprisoned there by tbe flames, and, wben finally resoued by companions, bis mustache was completely burned off. Another employe named Murphy endeavored to escape through the burn ing mill, and, bis clothes taking Are, be was obliged to jump in the river to save himself. .In the sash and door faotory the workmen first endeavored to save their tools, but soon were glad to leave everything and get out witb whole skins. About 200 men were empoyed by the oompany, and the monthly payroll was over $7,000. These employes probably represent that number of families, and the destruction of the mill by yester day's fire will work no inoonsiderable hardship among these people who are nearly all dependent on the daily earn ings of their bread winners.
