Tho last holiday was Labor day, nnd
occurred last Monday. Wo aro plenti

OLD TOOELE CAMPS.
Tho following Is a Herald Interview
with nn old time mining man:
"Whllo It Is now thirty to forty
yenrs slnco I was operating there,"
said he, "this trip ot mlno brought
vividly to mind what Dry Canyon nnd
Ophlr were doing in thoso diys, nnd it
suggested to mo the possibilities that
still exist thero. I am too old now to
think of following mining ns a pro.
rcssion again, but If I could I should
nsk for nothing better than tho oppor
tunnies that nro now simply await
'n tho ninn or combination of men
who might bo willing to Invest money
nnd Intioduco modem methods of
mining, milling and smelting nB thoy
exist today, In old Treasure hill for
Instnnce.
"In my day tho, cost of mining and
smeltlnu ores was so great that wo
nover thought of touching ores thnt
we today would bring ns good returns
ns tho high grade material wo wero
then compelled tp contlno our opera
tions to. Thero nro miles of old
workings In Treasure hill and tho
country surrounding which I know
confiln 11 world of ore that could to
day bo handled at u hnndsotno prollt,
wnllo development nt greater doptli
thnn wo felt snro In going would un
doubtedly rovcal riches of which wo
nover dreamed,
"As I wandered over tho hills nnd
rollowed the good roads which wo con
structed nnd which nro good today;
when I saw tho wires of tho W. A.
Clnrk electric light nnd power plant nt
Tooolo running ncross tho hills Into
Ophlr, nnd again saw tho water run
nlng through tho plpo-llno thnt wus
laid many years ngo by Undo Matt
Olsbom to carry water to tho Mono, i
could not help but wonder why thoso
valuable accessories ta cheap mining
and milling wero not being utilized by
younger men men In search of a
profitable held in which to exert their
energies nnd apply their talents,
"Stockton Is bolng rejuvenated, nnd
to every InBtupco whero tho old mlnoB
huvo been taUn hold of In tho man

slbtlltlou nro almost beyond computa
tion; but Dry Canyon. Its neighbor,
and famous In tho early days for the
richness of Its Burfnco ores, Is still ns
dead ns a mackerel.
I uitf no longer personally Inter
ested In theso camps nnd I am not
talking for tho purposo or in tho hopo
of gaining anything for myself, but
It docs nppenr strange that wuch n
wonderfully rich mineral-bearing re
gion should hnvo been overlooked by
tho army of bright mining engineers
who aro constantly on tho m looking
for good things to present to thoso for
whom thoy Inbor. Someone" ought to
