PRODUCTION. Owing to thr Interruption of all normal hualnaaa la various part of California, and particularly In Han Francisco, caused by the earthquake that devastated that city last spring, the report of the I'alted Bute geological survey on tha prnductlua of gold and silver during 105, has been unavoidably delayed. It is bow, however, available and will be of Inledeat s to tbs whole mining world, as it not merely the statistics of production hut mlnuta and Interesting data concerning the feforlvatloa of the gold and silver product from placers, from dry or ellcoona ores, nipper ores, lead ores, Mac area, copper lead or copper lead sine ores, and lead sine vies. The authority of the report Is Linder ea. Tbs figures showing the production of gold aad silver, la apifroaimata distribution by itatea and terrltoriea, an tha result of conference sad adjustment between tha geological survey and tha bureau of tba mint, aad ar accepted aa final by taro bureaus. Tbs total production of gold was 4,265,724 flue ounces, valued at 111.110,700; the total produrtlnn of allver was 56,101,000 fine ounces, valued at 134,221, 76. making aa entire total value of $122,402,676. The production of gold In the United States for 106 represents an Increase of $7,716,000 la value ever the production of 104. The rapid advance la gold production, which began In 182, but temporarily halted from 1901 to 190$, waa resumed in 1904. This lucres se in 104 over the output of 103 was approximately $7,000,000, and In nil probability the Increase In 106 over 105 will be st liwat the same amount. Tha chief sources of the great Increase ar as followa: Alaska added about 6,000.000 to it output of $9,160,456 In 104, and Colorado, Nevada, and Utah added about each to their prodnrt of tba previous year. On the other hand, decreases are noted In Arisons, Idaho and other states. The states producing ever $l,nno.ono in gold rsuk st present In the following order: Colo- redo, Csllfornis. Alsskn. South Dsknts. Nevada. Utah, Montana, Arizona, Oregon. and Idaho. The production of silver In 19ns represents a decrease of 1,5S1.2 ounces In actual output, but In spite of this the Increase la the average price 4 cents an ounce (from 57 t n In 104 to Cl cents in 1903) flfoctei! an addition to the value in IS4 of $765,952. Two years of belter prices far silver have thus far foiled to stimulate the production. The record figures were attained In 1S92, when the output was 63.500.00u tine ounces, Tslued at 955.662.5un. A .rill further advance to a maximum of souk what over 70 cents has taken place In 1906, but It is not likely that the year will show startling additions to the output for 1906. The Increase should eon-tain- Wol-dem- -' be more marked in 1907, and wlli probably be rather derived from cop per ores and dry silver ores than from lead ores. The decrease In the quantrv of sliver is specially noticeable in Colorado aad Utah; to a slight ilrgr'-t-alsin Montana. On the .iher estid, Nevada and Idaho materislly forreasel their output. The states producing over 1.000,000 ounces rank a present as followa: Montana. Colorado. Utah, Idaho, Nevada. Arisons, and California.

It Is not necessary for the new committee to ever meet, la fact, H Is not expected to meet; It will have Bo bnaloeas to transact If It should meet, but the room assigned to It makes a good loafing place for senators when they grow tired of their duties and want to rest and swap ,ukes. It ia always supposed that s new member brings with him a supply of fresh stories, and the older senators must catch on to them, au, as s rule, tba room of tha new committee Is very popular for awhlls. Tha last to be placed st the bead of one of these extemporised committees Is Senator DuPont, of Delaware. Of course his committee had to have a name, and It was baptised, Committee os Ventilation and Accoustlrs."

Ahead of her, against the sky line, was the lightship that ifiarked the turning nut quite point la the course. ee far sway, was the other lightship that she bad Jtixt passed. More schooner were following her, strung out In a long Hue, and others, bound la the opposite direction, were standing Inshore or heeding out to sea they best up In the face ef the brisk wind. Al occasional steamer or an ocean tug with a tow flaunted a dingy streamer of smoke here and there amid the graceful echuouers. Along the edge of the channel and sprinkled amid the blue were patches of light green water where the waves ran higher and broke occasionally. There were the ahoala the Hasor-backtthe BuneysrvT and the rest. If It were possible and fashionable to erect tomlwtonee for UVee last at sea these bidden sand ban would bristle with them.

Just over in deep water, a little achoooer lay at anchor, rocking and plunging Incessantly. Her tails were flown, and only on min waa aboard.

They were 'anchor dragging." The two dories moved slowly down tlte edge of the shoal, separated by a distance of perhaps a hundred yards. The line hetwrecn them, weighted with a lead sinker at each end, was drag' glng along the bottom. They were dragging for an anchor loot by the roasting schooner Mary D. a month before. 9he had been csngtit by the tide, and the chain had been let go with a run. One of the hands aboard-Kldred- ge aa by name-w- as Orham man, and be had had the presence of mind to take the ranges, which Information ha hsd sold to Cap tain Tttcomh for a five dollar bill. Bradley end the captain began rowing once more. They bad guns but s little way when, slowly but surely, tbs dories began to draw nearer to each other. Bradley, looking over the side, saw that tbe drag line" no longer bung straight down, bnt tightly tret rived by whatever holding It on five bottom, led off diagonally astern. They kept on rowing easily, and la a few minutes tbe presatire on the line had broneht the dories side by side. Then Bradley passed his end of the rope to his partner, wbn began hauling In with rare By this operation the sklpjvcrs dory was soon brought directly over tbe spot where lay the hklden object.

In 1896 McKinley so towered above all other possible candidates for the presidency as to make his nomination an assured fact long before the assembling of the convention. Up to the present time it Is anybody's race for the Republican nomination. For her. Shaw, Root. Taft and Falrtutnka are all on the waiting list. They stand for radically different policies. Vice President la the eonservailve one of the lot, but Mr. Forakrr Is also classed as an opponent of many of the most extreme measures of President Roosevelt. Sbsw, Taft and Root have each been the upholders or ail the policies I adoveated by the President. ia true that Taft disclosed a desire to kick a little over the traces at the order making the wholesale discharge of tho colored troops, bill ther was only tentative aud he has become one of the warmest defenders or ihe President on that Issue.

So far as ths world knows Mr Shaw has also stood very firinlv behind ihe President in all thinuv To him there has been manifested some opposition aiming the nienied classes, and some of his financial proposals have been severely frowned upon.
