Lectureof Hon. E. W. King, Deliv^^ered Before Students of Agricul^^tural College.
Immense Energies Now Going to^Waste But Wait the Trained Head^and Hand of Young Men.
(BowmanChronicle, Dec. 14).
Thefollowing lecture was given to^the students of the agricultural col^^lege In assembly hall recently by Hou.^E. W. King, on the subject of engi^^neering. In view of Mr. King's well^known reputation as an engineer of^ability, the lecture is full of interest^^ing facts, not only to college students,^but to everyone who realize that all^the great institutions of the modern^world, were first worked out, and then^established by the engineer. In view^of this the Chronicle takes pleasuic^in printing Mr. King's lecture:
Iwas asked about a week ago by^Prof. Cowper to give you a lecture on^some engineering subject, but never^having met any of you students, I vis^^ited the college a few days ago, and^after seeing what you were doing, and^learning that this was the first lec^^ture of a series that was to be given^to you this winter, I decided to give^you a general talk on the engineer^^ing profession In a broad sense. I^believe that the engineering profession^is one of the noblest as well aa one^of the oldest professions In existence,^and that it tends to the elevation and^comfort of mankind more than any^other profession.
Thereare few people who realize^the important position the engineer^holds in the economical development^of the world's resources. The laborer^of today, and for that matter, for ages^past, represents probably ninety per^cent of the producing population of^the globe, but nearly ait of the la^^borers are dependent on the capital^^ist for remuneration for his labor,^and what could the capitalist do with^^out the engineers^ None of the great^transcontinental railways could have^been built and put In successful oper^^ation without having had a trained^engineering mind to direct the locat^^ing and construction of the roadbed,^and of the locomotive*, and of the^telegraph lines, and of the thousand^and one appliances that go to make^up the properly equipped railway sys^^tem. The same is true in nearly ev^^er) kind of manufactory. The building^of the great ocean liners, the great^men of war and other fighting boats of^the modern navies, the erection of ttie^pieat steel and iron plants, sugar retin-^eiies, mills for the manufacture of^tin textile fabrics, the great electric^lighting and electric railway systems^of the world, the successful operation^of the great mining and metaltirgical^industries of the country, the suc^^cessful laying out and beautifying of^the modern city with all of Its con^^veniences in the way of light, heat,^power, water sanitary conditions and^La (.Teat sky-scraping uuildtngs and^numerous other things in the indus^^trial world are but the creations of^the well trained mind of the engi^^neer, and without him It would be im^^possible for the capitalist to carry^out these vast undertakings and fur^^nish work for the tolling millions, who^earn their bread by the sweat of their^brow.
Theengineer Is probably one of the^gieatest clvlllzers of the world. You^Uke the tribes of the earth, such as^the American Indian, the negro in^his native state, the South Sea island^^ers, and all other tribal countries of^the world, where there are no engi^^neering projects on foot, and you will^find 'lie lowest plane of civilization.^You ran step up a notch higher and^ta! '^ the Chinese empire, the Philip^^pine islands, the Indlas, and a num^^ber of African and South American^countries, and you will find that their^decree of civilization is about on a^par with their engineering develop^^ments, and that in all of these semi-^civilized countries that the engineer^^ing developments that are being car-^ri. ^l on. such as the construction of^railways, navies, harbor Improve^^teats, sanitary improvements in cit-^i, s, eic, are all being designed by^and constructed under the direction^of American or European engineers,^and it is a noticeable fact that as the^sanitary conditions are Improved in^the cities of these countries, and bet^^ter transportation facilities are ac^^quired, aud manufacturing establsh-^ments are built up to manufacture the^i aw materials produced by these^countries, that the degree of Intelli^gence of Its people Increases accord^InKly.
Now,to you boys who are here to^^day, who have made up your minds to^follow the engineering profession in^any of its various branches, I want to^say to you: Make up your minds to^be at the head in your particular line^Dou't be content to play second fid^die; the world Is full of second fid^dlers, but the real violin virtuosos can^almost be counted on the fingers of a^mau's hands. The same is true in^all branches of engineering. In the^mechanical engineering line you can^find thousands of men who can run^a lathe, planer, or any of the tools^used in a machine shop, and the large^machine shops of the country have no^trouble whatever in finding plenty of^machinists, blacksmiths, moulders,^boilermakers, etc., but if they are^called on to build a new ocean liner,^a special locomotive, whether to be^operated by steam, air, electricity,^gasoline or any other motive agent;^or any other large piece of machinery^where a large amount of money is^at stake, the first question that tin^manager of the shop will ask is,^where can I get the best man to do^the designing of and take the lead^in the construction of this piece ot^machinery.
Ifone of the large railroad com^paniea are going to construct several^hundred miles of new track they are^flooded with applications of men who^want a Job of running a level or^transit, but the railroad company gen^erally does considerable hunting be^fore It decides who will be the locut^lng engineer. _
Itmatters not want branch of en^fineering you adopt, whether it b^^mining, railway, municipal, sanitary,
hydraulic,bridge, electrical, chemical,^naval or any other branch, there la al^^ways the greatest demand, and by far^the greatest salary, for the ones who^are at the head.
Thereare very few people who re^^alise the Importance that la given to^the selection of an engineer by an in^dividual or corporation who content^plates the building up of any Industry^requiring such services, and there are^very few who realize the diversified^ability that Is expected of such an en^^gineer.
Forinstance, if a man is employed^as a locating engineer by a railway^company; first, he will have to be a^master of mathematics, and a thor^^oughly competent level and transit^man, not because he will have auy^use for these accomplishments, be^^cause it is more than probable that^he will not look through either a tran^^sit or level during the season's work,^he has to know how to do it all him^^self. He is not only the locating en^^gineer of the company, but he is the^finance' r of the company. First, he^has to size up the general conditions^of the country, what the probable^traffic both In freight and passengeis^is going to be .not only as soon as the^road Is completed, but for a number^of years In the future, so that the^general construction and equipment^ot the road will be such that it can^handle all the traffic that may go^over it and still not spend any un^^necessary money in the construction^work.
Thesame is true of a large propo^^sition; If I was to learn of a new^strike of ore 75 or 100 miles from^the railroad, and wanted to look Into^it with a view of purchasing it and^mding a mill on it, 1 would have no^trouble in getting plenty of assayers,^mill foremen, mine foremen, and all^of the different classes of labor nec^^essary to open up the mine, construct^the mill and put both in successful op-^eiation, but If I were so situated thai^I could not visit the property myself,^I do not know where I could find a^man that I could say to him: Her^^ts my pocketbook, go and look this^property over and, if it is a worthy^one, buy it for me and build a mill^on It that will be suitable for treat^^ing the ore. There are a number of^such men. but none of them are idle;^they all have good positions paying^from $5,000 to $20,000 a year, and^they are never bunting a job, but the^job Is always hunting them.
Aman who Is competent to go out^and purchase a mine, as I have just^outlined, and build a mill on it, and^put the property In operation must^have a cool calculating business head^on him, as the problem he has to deal^with Is as much a financial problem^as It Is a mining engineer's job, and^a mistake In his business calculations^may blaat his future reputation more^than any error he may make in his^engineering calculations. We will^say, for illustration, that I should bear^of a property out here In the moun^^tains, 50 miles from Bozeman, and^had decided on a man to examine it^for me, and had instructed him to^purchase it and build a mill and start^In to operate the property, If, in his^Judgment, it was a wormy one. The^first thing he would do would be to^go out and thoroughly sample the^supposed ore bodies, and in doing this^he would not only be careful not to^salt himself, but not to let the own^^ers salt him, so that he might buy^something that was worthless. While^he is still on the ground he would^have to make a rough sketch of the^claims, showing their relatve positions^nnd of the supposed ore bodies on^the same, he would have to make a^copy of each location notice as the^same was recorded and see that it^complied with the letter of the law.^He would also have to note whether^or not there are any conflicting claims^or claims in the group that were^larger than the law allows, so that^any fractions might be taken care of^at the start, he would also have to^make careful notes as to the amount^of timber for mining purposes, and^also for fuel that was available, and^the amount and permanency of the^water supply and whether any water^rights had already been filed on the^same, he would also have to make^several sketches of available mill-^sites, so that the transportation^charges would be as light as possible^on the ore; he would have to look^the ground over carefully below the^mill and see where the tailings from^the mill would flow,; he would Iook^the ground over carefully and approx^^imate the cost of building roads and^bridges over which to haul machinery^and supplies up to the mill and also^make general notes on the geological^conditions of the country, and be^come acquainted with the prospectors^and settlers who lived near the prop^^erty. With this data he could come^out and have his samples carefully^assayed and some of the unchecked^by other assayers, and if the returns^were favorable he would want to go^back and get an option on the property^for sixty or ninety days, and deeds of^all of the property put in escrow, and^then put on a crew of men and start^cross-cutting the ore bodies, and at^the same time do a more thorough^and systematic sampling so that by^the time the option had expired he^would not only have a very fair idea^of the value of the ground, but he^could have all of the claims properly^surveyed out, and all of the fractions^or additional ground located that^would be of use, and also all of the^water, timber and tailings rights se^cured and his right of way over oth^^er property for roads that might be^needed. During this time be would^also make all klnda of tests of the^ore to determine as to the best meth^^od of treating the same, in the mean^^time he would apply for patent to all^of the ground, and do the necessaiy^work on each claim, and secure ab^^solute title to all of the ground con^^taining the ore bodies, and also all^ground that might conflict or carry^any possible apex right or rights for^the flow of tailings; by doing this^he may avoid expensive law suits In^the future and the possible loss of^the whole mining property. In the^purchase of this property and putting^it In operation there will probably be^a great many thousand dollars ex^uended In the country in which It Is^located, and the greater part of It^will be paid out for labor that direct^ly benefits the country, and the prop^^erty will also pay a great many dol^lars In the years to come into the^county treasury in the form of tax^^s, and it is no more than right that^the county commissioners should aid^to some extent in building the perm^^anent roads to the mining camp, and^if the matter is property laid before^them by the engineer the ywlll prob^^ably do it.
Theengineer has also got to be a^^rood judge of human nature and use^^ great deal of care In the selection^)f bis foremen .and see that they are^.ireful in the selection of their men,^^r the first thing he will know he will^have some disturbing elements in his^~rew and he will have a strike on his
AnotherOld-Timer Passes On
Lewistownand Fergus county lost^a good citizen last Thursday after^^noon when Jacob I. Corbly passed^away at his ranch home near the city.^Mr. Corbly had long been a resident^ol this county and has always been^one of Its best and most highly re^spec-ted citizens. He has held various^positions of trust in the county and^city and filled them all In an exemp^^lary manner. He has not been well^for a year or more, but his health of^late had appeared to be no poorer^than for some time and his death^came as a great shock to his family^and friends. The direct cause of^death was due to some acute disease^of the heart and Mr. Corbly had pass^^ed away before a physician could^reach the ranch.
Thefuneral services were conducted^by the Masons, of which organization^Mr. Corbly was an honored member.^At his own request, made some time^ago, there was no sermon, but merely^the formal service of the order. The^services were held at the Masonic hall
Mrs.Corbly died In the spring of 1875,^leaving a husband and three children.^In the spring of 1881 he, with his^daughters, moved to the valley of Gal^^latin, In the state of Montana, and^after residing there for several years^was married In Julv. 1886. to Miss^Hattie Dwight, who is the present wife^surviving him, snd to them five chil^^dren were given, four of whom are^now living with their widowed mother^and whose names are: Lena, Linn,^Gladys and alary Corbly.
BrotherCorbly came from the Galla^^tin valley in lgy.i, and settled near^Lewistown and has ever since resided^in Fergus countv lie associated him^^self with the Masonic fraternity at^Sedan, in the state of Kansas in the^year 1877, and affiliated with Lewis-^town Lodge Ko. 37 in the year 1890,^and has ever since, and was at the^time of hla death a member of the^last named lodge in good standing.^His honesty and his integrity and his^influence among men and Masons have^ever been noteworthy and a great^force and character for good. His^genial soul and pleasant associations^will be sadly missed by all who had^the pleasure of knowing Brother Cor^^bly and to know him was but to have^a kindly feeling for the man.
at1:30 o'clock Monday afternoon,^James M. Blackford, Worshipful Mas^^ter, conducting them. The obituary^roll was read by George J. Bach and^the resolutions by Frank E. Smith.^George W. Cook was the marshal.^The music at the hall was made by a^male quartet composed of P. M. Slllo-^way, J. M. Smith, J. M. Croft and^Charles Denyes. Oswald Lehman was^at the piano. The interment was at^the Lewistown cemetery, at which^place the usual Masonic service was^read.
Thepaltbearers were W. D. Jack^^son. Dr. H. H. Wilson, Frank Day, Wm.^Medlgar, H. N. Rogers and T. W. War-^len.
Theobituary roll, as read by George^J. Bach, is given here:
BrotherJacob I. Corbly was boru^February 2, 1841, at Parkersburg, in^the state of Virginia, now West Vir^^ginia. At an early age his parents^moved from his native state and in^1849 located near Marion, in the state^of Iowa, where young Corbly grew to^manhood. In 1864 Brother Corbly was^married to Miss Jane Bolton at his^home in Iowa, and to them three chil^^dren were given, viz: Mrs. O. W.^Smith, now living at Belgrade, Galla^^tin county, Montana; Mrs. Rogers, re^^siding at Rogers, in this state, and^Mrs. Charles L. Went worth, residing^in this city. From the state of Iowa^Brother Corbly moved to Missouri and^thence to the state of Kansas, where
InFergus county Jacob I. Corbly^has held the offices of school clerk^and school trustee of the Lewistown^public schools and was elected and^held the office of county commissioner^of Fergus county for four years.
Whilebut a young man and at the^age of only 23 years Brother Corbly^enlisted on the 17th day of July, 1861,^in company A, Sixth Iowa Infantry^Volunteers as a private soldier and^thereafter advanced to corporal and^on the 26th day of January, 1864, was^honorably discharged by reason of his^re-enlistment as a veteran volunteer^at Scottsboro, Alabama. lie was ap^^pointed sergeant of company A, Sixth^regiment of owa Infantry Volunteeis,^on the 27th day of February, 1864,^and was honorably discharged from^service at Louisville, Kentucky, on the^21st day of July, 1865. He was a good^and faithful soldier and officer, true^to his government and Just to his^country. He was with Sherman in^his march to the sea, engaged in the^battle at Shiloh and Chattanooga, was^in the siege of Vicksburg and Atlan^^ta, where he was injured by having his^hearing partially destroyed and was^also engaged in the battle on Lookout^Mountain and a number of minor skir^^mishes.
BrotherCorbly answered to the call^of that messenger Death, and quietly^and peaceably passed away on the^22nd day of December, 1904, at 4^o'clock in the afternoon at his home^near Lewistown, Montana.

A.R. Frame was a visitor here last^Friday.
JohnM. White has returned from^a trip to Tonopah, Nev. Mr. While^eays that wages are $4 per day and^miners usually get $5. Meals are 75c^each and a bed one dollar. He says^il is a rich mining country but a dif^^ficult one to prospect, as a team is^necessary, for one must go at least^100 miles along the mineral range in^^to the interior, as the country nearer^is all staked. Hay sells for $150 per^ton In Goldfield, and prospectors must^use mules as dust and climate are^hard on horses. There Is no feed for^a team, so one must carry It with^him. Railroad freight is from $2 to^$3 per cwt. Some of the ore runs^very high and ore running from $30^to $40 cannot be worked on account^of high freight. He also says there^are plenty of men there looking for^work.
Theentertainment given here by^John Maguire was appreciated by^those fortunate enough to attend.
Thewriter made a trip to Kendall^last week and finds It to be one of^the most prosperous mining camps in^the state and the business men report^business good and seem to be pros^^pering.

Stantonand Armstrong Well Pleased^With Devlopment Work.
(GreatFalls Tribune.)^A 100-ton plant for treatment of^ores from the mines at Kendall that^are owned by Geo. H. Stanton and^Homer Armstrong, of this city, will bo^erected in the spring, as early as the^work may be done. Mr. Armstrong,^who has been In charge of the de^velopmenl of the properties for sev^^eral months, Is in the -city for the^holidays, and as a result of bis repo-.t^upon the showing made, it has been^determined to erect the plant.
Thegroup of claims adjoins the fa^^mous Dames-King mines, for the sale^of which for f1,200,000 a deal Is about^closed. The ore Is of the same char^^acter as that in the Barnes-King and^Kendall mines and the claim thai ad^Joins the Barnes-King group abuts up^on the most valuable of the Barnes-^King claims, which has been develop^cd to the depth of 660 feet.
Thegroup has long been known to^be of considerable value, but the;^former owners, though encouraged Ly^the wonderful showing in the adja^^cent properties, did not have tho^means to develop the claims. Since^Messrs. Armstrong and Stanton pur^^chased the properly, development has^been steadily pushed under the direc^^tion of Mr. Armstrong. The owncM^have heretofore refrained from mak^^ing any public statements as to the^results of their operations, though^greatly encouraged from the first, de^siring to know definitely the value of^the properties before they should give^out any Information.
Thedevelopment and exploiting of^the properties have now progressed to^such extent that they are satisfied^that It will pay to operate the prop^^erties on a large scale, and because^of the results secured, have decided^to erect the mill and proceed to ex^^tract and treat the ore on a large^scale.
Mr.Armstrong will return to the^mines In a few days, to continue the^work of development and prepare for^the erection of the mill at the earliest^practicable date.
