Charging that tbe syndicate of Eng
lish millionaires who have contral of
the tin mines of the Straights settle
ment, Australia, Banka Island and
'Cornwall, and thus control the price
ol tin throughout the world, are delib
erately keeping down the production
«of a tin mine which they own in the
Black Hills have set out to Interest
.capital in other tin property in that
jart of the state.
The Black Hills mining men who
are. behind the movement to have the
undeveloped tin mines worked, have
for some time been quietly carrying on
an investigation, with the result that
they have established beyond a doubt
that there are extensive areas in the
•Black HIUb which have tin in as great
abundance a* the tin mine in that sec
tion which is jjow cdntrolled by the
.'English monopoly. Thus tney hope to
break the monopoly and add greatly
to the annual mineral production of
'the Black Hills.
•spsj!- J. T. Henry, a prominent mining
i^Cy'unan of the Black Hills, who 1b one of
iJVasfti'those who have been quietly investi

Hilis, furnishes some lnterest

The tin deposits belonging to th$
English syndicate, arc sltaated In what
i^own as the 'Bear G®ch district,
and (the syndicate carries .on Its cuf

that Jthe company's chief desire and
bi&tj&o far as its Black Hills .tin prop

the Black Hills tlfiledgescannot be

ietn quantity.
As to quality this tin ore will yield
$11.88 per ton on a basis of 1% per
cent tin, or $7.92 on a basis of 1 per
cent tin to the ton. The latter is
about twice as much value as the aver
age gold ore of the Homestake—three
times as much as the average of the
Wasp mine gold ores—both of which
have been dividend payers from the
start. This is the value of the tin
alone, saying nothing of the gold val
ues in the ore and its accompanying
schists, which assay from $2.50 to
$5 in gold per ton. Iu addition, there
are other known ledges of gold ore
running parallel with and distinct
from the tin ledges, which assay up
into the hundreds or dollars.
In support of the charge that the
English syndicate is not endeavoring
to work its Black Hills tin mining
property at a profit, it is stated that
three years ago an employe of the
company, seeing that nearly half the
tin the ore crushed was going over
with the tailings, set a sluice box be
low the mill, and, satisfied that there
was money in the scheme, asked per
mission to sluice the tailings for half
the tin he might save. His request
was refused.Again, in the same line
of experimentation, another man set
a section of Hungarian riffle in a
sluice box below the mill, and, on go
ing to it four or five hours later, found
the riffles full and running over. If
the company, was honestly striving to
demogstarte that the tin ledges of the
district st«M be worked proatabiy,
mining pi en gay jt should have placed
a line of pluice b©*e» below :t^V»lil
and thus save the greater percentage
of the tin that the mill failed to bold.
iMs pointed, out fey experts that at
Ifie Swanseft and for that matter in all
tin reduction works legitimately oper
ated, the tailings are run through lpng
lines of sluices to save the Sue par
ticles of tin that escape from the mills
It is stated on good authority that
the ore from the Black Hills tin inlne
owned by the English syndicate car
ried by-products other than gold .that
could easily be saved, andSvhich would
more than pay the cost of/mining and
reducing.
The presence of tin ore in the Black
Hills wfs first discovered by placer
miners forking along the streams of
the Bear Gulch district What they ft
first looked upon as "worthless "black
aand" and which bothered them cos-,
siderably in sluicing for gold, was
proven to be stream tin.
Through the efforts of the South'Da
kota representatives in congress, that
body some years ago placed a nominal
tariff ou tin plate, its continuance be?
lng conditional upon: the production of
block tin in the United States. It was
iaturallxj presumed that this would
Induce capital to .open up the ttu
mines bf'tbe Black? Hills'and ttiutf es
tablish a new and highly profitable in
dustry In thlB Country. A new lndis
try did result In the establishment of
tin. plate mills in various parts of the
United States, but to lair, or until the
last year or two, the plating has been
'done altogether with imported block
tin from Cornwall fend other British
pbgBesgions, while tile Black Hills tin
mines have continued in a dormant
coditlon.
It ^aa atngUld¥* colncldenOe tiiat
on t^e. heels of the passage of the
provision placing the tariff on tin,
representatives of British capital at
Wide flocked to the Black Hills ati4
tried to purchase all the tin ground
In sfebt. iDhey 'succeeded 4n part,

Black Hills, as now planned .the lBrit
entire
the British capitalists' tin cake. They
do not want any American tin minjs
opened up if they can help" it until
thoee in their own territory are prac
tically exhausted. The Black Hnls
men interested in the matter are hope
ful of soon securing ample capital to
open up the tin mines in "that region
and operate them on a large scale:
THE IDEAL VACATION
Out at Pierre, many of the residents
are camping in the groves along the
river. They are not spending several
days getting ready to go to. Borne
popular summer resort, where they
will have to maintain dress and dig
nity, but are. taking the required step
to get the ideal vacation. The vaca
tion of a few years ago, where people
sought a quiet place, where they
could be away from everything, has
reaily degenerated into a social affair
more than anything else. What a per
son needs when they take a vacation,
is a vacation. Some prefer visiting
among friends and relatives in dis
tant cities, while others camp out. if
you would really enjoy camping out,
camp out in regulation style. Pro
cure a tent large enough to protect
those who are to occupy it. Have
this for the sleeping tent. Dace
straw on the floor and cover this over
With a piece of canvas.- Have a blan
ket or two with you to use as a cov
ering as needed. Have another tent
if necessary to eat in. Build your Are
as nearly primitive aB possible. Just
fish if you are near a body of water,
and lay around and enjoy yourself.
A hammock and a few other articles
are all that are necessary to complete
the camping outfit. Go and rest and
enjoy yourself, not to worry and fret.
If you go to housekeeping In a cottage
you simply have, changed locations,
and perhaps have got into it worse
than if you had stayed at home. Tlie
people at Pierre have hit the right
trail when it comes to camping out.
They will get more for their money
and spend a whole lot less money.
Legislate Instead of Voting Them Out
The anti-saloon interests won a
victory in/Washington the other day
when Senator Cummins was author
ized to report favorably a* bill giving
to dry states the power to intercept
shipments of liquor that were being
shipped Into it from wet states. The
interstate liquor laws are to be made
the law of the single state. If the
drastic legislation that has been gor
lng on for some time is kept up, :the
fialoon will be legislated out of busi
ness before it can be, voted out. ^ut
both are helping get tlie business
down where It belongs.

Thank the Lord, Hi's Out
Well, Lorimer is out of the senate,
although he has served notice on the
voters of Illinois that his hat Is still
in the ring. There, are two nico
things about this Lorimer deal, the
senators who favored Lorimer retain
ing his seat, and voted for him, gave
their enemies something to use as
campaign thunder, and""'some of them
Were defeated at the recent, primary
elections for the stand they took. The
other is that, well, some people will
have to harp about something else.
,. No Third Party For Him
Governor Deneen of Illinois, has re
fused to join the third party, and has
come out openly for Taft. We ad
mire the man who is open, and above

Did
you see the circus Monday,
drink
pink lemonade, eat peanuts, take
in the side-shows, water the elephants,
shake
hands with the squaws, lead
your
girl around through the crowds
by
the hand—this last addressed to
the
unmarried men, the married men
wouldn't do anything like that— and
while we are speaking on the subject
isn't
it funny how you can tell a man
who
is married—as he walks along
the
streets on a lovely night—you can
always
tell them, because they walk
along
by the side of their wives in
differently—the single fellow would
have
his girl by the arm, and well
each
coud hear the other whisper
but
we were referring to the thing3
done
on circus day—if you did all the
above
mentioned things, then you en
joyed
yourself.
String Beans vs. Politics
A
Watertown man last spring plant
ed two
rows of beans, from his house
to the
barn—the beatis were to
for
Be
family use. He has had all the
family''can
eat from the two" rows
and
has sold nearly three dollars
of the
string beans to the merchants.
There
is some politics to that kind of
business, .v
It Was Roosevelt.
We didn't bolt Roosevelt—he bolt
ed us. We' are still for Roosevelt so
far as that is concerned, but not for
a third party—the time isn't ripe yet.
