faUecnKo be immensely rich when
Th>e difference in cost between
driving a tunnel and sinking a shaft
are as three to one in favor of the
tunnel, as in driving a tunnel all the
water runs out by its own gravity,
and the rock or vein matter can be
ran out in cars hy hand, while in
sinking a. shaft extensive machinery
is necessary for hoisting both rock
and water to the surface, which in all
districts forms' the chief item of ex?
pense in mining.
Persons owning stock in the com?
pany to which this tunnel belongs,
may anticipate immense results, such
os have never yet been realized in the
.history of mining.
