Mining as aa Investment.
There is as much
vested in mining as in banking,
and the former pays a much hand
against mining, like a hereditary
taint, still clings to the ultra-con
servative, the timid, and less ambi
tious. Such notions and ideas on
mining, though well intended, are
based upon the theory that some
one lost money either in mining
proper, or in mining stock specula
tion, Millions are sunk yearly in
corn, wheat, pork or railroad spéc
iation, b.ut no one condemns such
anomalism, except, perhaps, the
agriculturalist, or the suffering
"That the number of dividend
paying mining companies is larger
than that of all other combined in
dustries is fully sustained by sta
tistics. That mining produces
quicker and greater profits than
any other industrial pursuits is
evidenced by the existence of
scores of multi millionaires who
owe their wealth to it."
The above, from E. T. Rich, a
prominent eastern banker, in an
article contributed to The National
Banker, a publication representa
tive of conservatism, careful in
vestments and banking and finan
cial interests states as clearly as
words will tell, why such a large
percentage of the mine dividends
from the west are being distributed
among the once "ultra-conserva
tive" in the east.
It is the change which has over
come the temper of the world that
possesses the minds of men from
the presidency of the government
down through all the stations of
public and private trust. It is not
strange, then, that those living in
the west, in the very sight and
sound of the blasts that mine the
ore, or the mills that treat it,
should seek fortune from the treas
ure vaults hidden beneath
of this intermountain
Haviland China at Getchell,s.
"At the present writing we have
no desire to leave this vale of tears
and hurl ourselves into Abraham's
bosom," says the shaggy editor of
the backwoods journal, "but if we
should decide to do so we wouldn't
lean up against a loaded shot gun
and pull the trigger as many do.
Neither would we eat
meal of rough on rats, blow out the
gas, drink concentrated lye, sit
down in the lap of a buzz saw,
smoke a cigarette or call a Ken
tuckian a liar and a poor judge
of whisky. We would simply get
out an edition of our paper in
which we would strive to the very
best of our ability to print the
plain square-toed truth about as
we understand it and then calmly
await the end."—Stolen.
