WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 8, 1913.
Ute Social Mirror
(From Sunday's Daily.)
Human nature loves to hang on to
old traditions and customs, to talk
about them, to dream over them, to
take them once in a -while from the
mothballs and lavender and rever
ently smooth them out rarely in
these progressive days to practice
them. That would be bad business.
Once a year, when by an arbitrary
division of time made for general
convenience we say one year ends
and another begins, sentimentalists
start to indulge again in the dang
erous pastime of making New Year
resolutions. Dangerous, because
every falling from grace means a
weakening of the will power. A
New Year resolution is a chunk of
gold suspended by a thread of goss
amer over a bottomless pit. As soon
as the wind whistles the thread
breaks and the golden weight is
seen no more. The resolute don't
need to make resolutions, the weak
minded are never strengthened by
them. A New Year resolution alt
ers a man no more than a new suit
of clothes. What the world needs
is more new wearers of old clothes,
not more old wearers of new ones.
Success is the one standard by
which everything is judged. Per
haps in the coming year we might,
without the aid of resolves, start
right in to make more of it, for
others and for ourselves. How will
this passage from Thoreau do, not
for a resolution, but what is far
more vital, for a New Year wish?
"If the night and the day are such
that you greet them with joy, and
life emits a fragrance like flowers
and sweet-scented herbs is more
clastic, more starry, more immortal
that is your success." And so "the
wish I would ask for myself is the
one I am sending you, that each
day may be a new day, each week
a new week and each month a new
month' new in hope, new in cour
age, new in strength, new in oppor
tunity." Christmas festivities did not les
sen the enthusiasm for entertaining
and the past week was even busier
with its dinners and card parties
than the one preceding.
Good fellowship and good cheer
were truly in evidence at the Yava
pai club on New Year's day. The
Teception hours were from two until
six and during this time guests as
sembled in great numbers to greet
their friends with a "Happy New
Year." Red tulle subdued the lights
of the ball room while the decora
tions of pine branches, palms, sprays
of smilax and an orchestra conceal
ed behind a bank of smail Christmas
trees, echoed in every detail the
brilliancy and splendor of the
Among those who assembled to
do honor to the occasion were:

handsome cut glass bowl in which
were arranged quantities of red car
nations. Satin ribbons extended
from this to the corners of the table

For the Benefit of Companies

PHOENIX, Jan. 6. In his report
just submitted to Governor Hunt,
G. H. Bolin, state mine inspector,
reviews the work of his branch of
the state government from his ap
pointment to November 30th, 1912.
It will be recalled that the office
of mine inspector was created by
the constitutional convention anl the
duties of the office were outlined by
an act. of the first state legislature
following which the appointment of
Bolin was made. Later William
Farrell, John Harper and J. C. Wil
son were named as deputies and
with their chief have conducted the
work of the office.
In all at least two inspections have
been made of all of the more impor
tant mining properties "of the state.
On the octassion of the first visit an
effort was made to point out to the
mine operators various changes
which would work to the benefit of
the employes and at the time of the
second inspection changes which
had been suggested were where they
had been installed inspected.
The greatest problem which con
fronted the mine inspector and his
deputies was that of mine ventila
tion which according to the report
of the inspector was at the beginn
ing of his work very poor. In
many cases the humidity was so
great that it was almost impossible
for employes to do an average shift
of work without impairing their
health to a marked degree.
In discussing this question Mine
Inspector Bolin says: "I want to

all concerned. The further hearing
of the case will probably go to an

impress upon the minds of the man
agers of the different mining com
panies operating in the state, and I
am speaking from a practical stand
point, that they cannot reduce the
cost of production of ores by any
system they adopt, more than they
can by properly ventilating all of
the workings of the mine. To ob
tain the best results the interest of
the employer and employee must be
interdependent. If the employes in
a mine see that conditions are made
as safe and sanitary as possible for
his health and safety, he naturally
takes more interest in the .work he
is doing and will accomplish more
than he could if the mine was oper
ated in an adverse manner."
According to the report much
good has been accomplished by the
inspections made all of the compan
ies joining with the inspector in
putting into effect remedial correc
tions. Some of the operating mines
have men employed whose sole duty
it is to see that the temperature in
the workings is kept reduced to at
least 70 degrees fahrenheit.
In all the inspector and his as
sistants have attended six inquests
for the purpose of ascertaining the
cause of the fatal accidents but in
some cases it was impossible to ar
rive at places desired in time in
which cases the verdicts of coro
ners have been examined. In this
connection the suggestion is made in
the report that some provision of
law be made for the appointment
and compensation of deputy inspec
tors for each mining camp of im
portance. MAYER CITIZEN
