Present conditions have created an awe.
but not apathy, and the mines and mills
of the district are being urged to a greater
output to place aj much ore upon the mar
ket as possible while the price Is so high.
The advance of ST per ton In the last two
weeks has caused wonderment at the prob
able cause and general querj- of how Ions
will it last.
In April the producers' pool formed a
corner on the visible supplj- of zinc ore
and sent the price up to S2S, but this lasted
only two weeks, when It receded to 134.
at which price It held throughout May. and
went to $33 in June.
Only since the first of Julj- has the present
big boom in prices occurred, and It came
spontaneously- from the smelters without an
effort on the part of the producers. While
a rising market was hoped for. the great
bound taken In the market was really a
hurprise. Hoping it will continue, jet tno
producers are wondering what It portends
and where It will end. A few operatars
exhibited confidence in a further advance
by holding their ore and declining to ac
cept the bid of the past week.
Investment talk of all kinds is heard on
every hand, and the adventurous spirit of
the prospector has been aroused to unusual
activity, with aTesult that new and greater
effort will be made toward opening near
mines and extending the runs of ore already
developed, and the operator is planning to
enlarge h!s output in cveiy way. Not since
October, ISO, has zinc ore been so high.
Then It was $43 per ton, having declined
from $35 In April of that year.
The slilpment of last week was large, but
icarcely up to the preceding -week, not be

Yates had to make some changes. He be
gan by transferring McLallan to the De

change by making him secretary. South

Chandler had to decline the place but to
test the s'ncetlty of the Governor he recom
mended the appointment to John M. Keefer.
who was the resident trustee under Tanner
and who had already been promised re
appointment. Keefer Is still waiting for
the place, although numerous changes have
been made In the oersonnel of the botrd
since It was promised him.
Sherman's friends all over the State are
having the same sort of experience Every
where one of them puts bis head up some
thing Is thrown at It. Thomoson Is about
the onlv one left. He was Captain of the
military company at Macomb and h- re
signed to prevent the companv- from being
mustered out. This was not the reason Ii"
gave for his resignation when he handed
It In. but that was why he gave u thi
commission. He did not wan' to see tiif

thc case is different. There Is nothing at
stake In the registrar's office, for it Is
without duties and without salary, but he
will never relinquish It voluntarily.
