Mineral Lead States
Continually are Changing
WASHIXGTOX, Xov 1C The great
volume of the mineral production or
the United States, its tremendous In
crease during the last few ytnrs. and
the wide distribution of the Important
minerals were indicated in a recent
address by vTeorge OUs Smith, Di
rector of the United States Geological
Survey. The 12 most important min
eral products in the United States, ln
the order of value of annual output,
were stated by Mr. Smith to be coal.
Iron, clay product, copper, petroleum,
gold, stone, natural gas, cement, lead
silver and zinc "For certain of these
minerals," ho said, "the Geological
Survey prenenra estimates of the sup

production are ever shifting.
California In Lead
"F6r Instance, up to 1891 Pennsyl
vania was the leading state In the
(Production of petroleum. In 1893 it
.was succe-eded by Ohio. Ohio gave
j way to California In 1903. California
1 gave way to Oklahoma in 1907 and
iTesumed premiership In 1909, re'tam-J
bing it' sinctf that time. Both Illinois
(and Oklahoma exceeded the prodnc
! lion of any of the Kjstern states 'In
lyOi and nave continued to do so. For
many years lip to 190C "Montana was
the principal producer of copper, ln
1S07 it gave way to Arizona, and in
1909 Arizona gave place to Montana.

Distribution Potent Factor
"Of nearly equal Importance with

In the first place, the widespread dis
tribution of the raw material raakis

every etate has some share In the min

appears to have a, monopoly of the
mineral Industry. While Pennsylvan
ia, with. Its total mineral product more
than one-fourth that of the whole coun
try, leads In coal, cement and stone
by larger margins, another state, Min-
ducer of lead. It gave way to Mis
souri In 1907. and the latter state now
contributes 45 per cent of the coun
try's total. Nevada In the glory days
ot the Comstock lode, from 1873 to
1878, was the greatest silver producer
In tho world. When the Comstock
declined. In the latter part of the last
century, Nevada gave way as a silver
produqer, first to Colorado, then to
Montana, but became again the prin
cipal producer of silver In 1910. Ten
years ago Colorado, the leading gold
producing state, produced over CO
rer cent more than California, then
second In rank. California's propor
Hon has been steadily Increasing for
ten years and in 1911 the largest pro
duction of gold was from that state."
Much of the expense Incident to Inter
state and transcontinental business,
they declare, is charged by the rail
roads to intra-state business.
On the main Ilr.ei the cost or cai
fylng intra-state passengers is practi
cally nothing. Trains are run Tor 'fie
accommodation of travelers who pajs
through the state without, stopping. If
a passenger travels from Ash Fork to
Flagstaff, for examplu. the cost of
transporting him Is only the cost of
selling him a ticket. The cost of op
erating the train on which hr eides Is
paid by interstate passengers, ani
they pay less than two cents a mile.
The railroads area ghtlng for the priv
ilege of charging Intra-state passen
gers In Arizona four cents a mile.
Intra-State SUndt Loss
It is stated that the cost of operat
ing the yards, round houses and shops
at division points in Ariona Is charged
entirely to intra-state traffic, while
they are used entirely to take care of
transcontinental trains. This Is only
one Instance of interstate traffic costs
being charged to intra-state traffic.
Only the Southern Pacific and Santa
Fe do a trans-state -business in Ari
zona, but the El Paso and Southwest
ern carries many Interstate passen
gers. The order is therefore directed
at them. Some time will be required
for them to furnish the figures requir
ed by the corporation commission. The
commission will insist that the order
be complied with tfefore the second
hearing, which Is to be held In San
Francisco. The first hearing, to be
held here, will be merely a formal pre
ceedlng and preparatory to the second.

comes from his pen:
The New Dispensation
Now that the election is over and

has had time to subside Into a sigh of
satisfaction and relief, let the mind s
eye or thoughtful democrats, glancing
from heaven to earth, from earth to
heaven, body forth to the less thought
ful tome of the giants and dragons
which will presently rise across the
party's line of march to divide its
counsels and obstruct its progress.
They may seem just now to unre
flecting and optimistic enthusiasm but
airy nothings, mere figments of over
wrought, or of prejudiced imagination.
Yet are they real, and It will not le
quire the poet's pen to give to each
his form and presence, even to distin
guish each by a tag bearing a leval
habitation and a name. History tells
that after Bull run the vlcturv .lu.ir.
