' Monopoly of Timber.
The accumulation in the hands of
a few individuals of the enormous
timber resources in the United States
was responsible for the comparatively
small amonnt of timber land bonds

GEMINI PAYS $10 DIVIDEND
Dividends on Utah mines are com
ing in thick and fast these days. The
last to announce one is tho "id Gem
ini Mining company. This is $10 a
share, calling for $50,nori to be dis
tributed on November 15. This makes
1100,000 for the company this year,
and equal amount having been paid
out on May 20 With the sending
out of checks to the stockholders of
the Gemini in two weeks, it will give
this great old Tlntic mine a total div
idend record to date of $2,230,000
This brings Utah's 1913 dividend total
up to $5,992,600.
The Gemini Is a company of only
5000 shares, but of $100 par value
each. The dividends to date have
amounted to $440 a share, or over
four times the par value. The com
pany Is managed by John C. McChrys
tal and associates of this city. At
present the mine is being run on the
leasing principle almost wholly.
Theer are about 90 men employed In
the mine. The September production
was 2500 tons of ore and the average
Is from 1 r0 to 2000 tons every 30
days. The ore average 40 to 50
ounces silver and 12 to 16 per cent
In January the Gemini shipped out
37 cars. In February, 29: March, 40;
April. 30; May, 43: June, 42; Jul...
21; August, 3G; September, 41; and
The mine has been producing for
many years, yet it is maintaining this
heavy output in a remarkable way.
It has been leased from the 200 down
to the 1670 level, nearly all of the
levels still giving up their toll of ex
cellent shipping ore which runs well
enough to make good money for the
leasers as well as the owners of tho
property. This production Is all from
above the water level, or permanent
sulphide zone. Iast summer the 1400
level was connected with the ChW
Con. 's 1600 level, affording excellent
air throughout the mine.
The Gemini has been opened below
the water level, where three or four
years ago pumps were put In and the
ground made to produce for a time
from the 1750 to the 1900 level. The
results were more than reassuring
There was one shipment of 2021 tons
6ent out from this sulphide ore zone
In the limestone which ran exceeding
lv high. The following is an average
of this 40 big car consignment; 134 5
ounces silver; 18 14 per cent lead;
3 48 per cent iron; 48.8 inosluble.
6.94 per cent sulphur and 6.37 per
cer cent zinc.
Twenty-Million Dollar Project
Proposed to Parallel North
ern Pacific and St. Paul.
Seattle. Wash. Oct. 30. Plans for
a $20,000,000 railway project, the
West Coast railroad, were filed In
the name of J. P Parrel!, president
of the Oregon-Washington Railroad
& Navigation company, a Harrlman
line, in the United States land office
at Olympia today. The line proposed
will parallel the Northern Pacific and
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St Paul
road6 across the Cascade mountains
and will have ocean terminals In Ta
coma and Seattle James L. Brass,
general manager of the company said
tonight that the filing should be con
sldered as merely a preliminary step
and had no Immediate significance, the
filing of plans being made to hold the
territory. It is generally believed
that the proposed line is an extension
of the North Coast railroad, a Harrl
man property from North Yakima to
Seattle, and Tacoma. The routo filed
today calls for a crossing of the Cas
cades through Natchez. pa68. jusc
south of the Northern Pacific's Stam

New York. Oct. 30 The undertone

Railroad Operations on Frazei
River Has Disastrous Effect
on Fish Industry.
Washington. Oct 30. Railroad
biasing operations on a tributary or
the Fraser river. In Washington,
having killed more than one million
salmon and prevented the spawning
of between two and three billion
sockeye salmon eggs, the department
of commerce announced today that
the fishing loving American public
might expected a decided shortage in
Its tavonte article of food three to
five years hence. The department
pronounces the slaughter of the fish
to be a "catastrophe "
"The effects of this catastrophe,'
It was declared, "will be seen three
to five years hence, when the 1913
progeny come back to the river to
spawn. How serious the outcome
will be can only be surmised."
The Livelihood of thousands of
persons In the state of Washington
and in British Columbia, adds the
department, depends upon the an
nual "run ' of these fish, which re
turn year by yeir to the same
spawning grounds. This it Is sug
gested, makes the matter one of even
greater economic Interest. Rocks
dislodged by the blasting blocked
the stream and caused the death of
the ascending fish.
