The upper one has been drive'n into the

ophiion hllandedar dalown by Judge (;ilbert
in tlhe Purelid States cilrcuit court of
appealals yesterday in responslllea to tirhe
apilhal of the St. Louis Mlning & Mill
iing I'coIpany of Montana and William
:layger' fro( the decree of the alrcuit
ca(.irt in favor of the Montana Mining
ui tru pany, linitad.
'1'Th St. Louis conampany owns a (alaliii
hearing that name and adjoining it is
the Nine-Hour clailn of the Montana
compiany. The St. Louls compnlaany pro
ciitded to drive a tunnel 260 feet under
gr'ouindl horizontally fromn ts own claimr
toward the Nine-hlour clamn to tap a
lode which had Its apex on its own
ground, and In doing so worlktd through
ithe ground of Its neighbor. It was, in
facrt, exploratlion work, ais the tunnel wtas
not driven on oret, lnor wails it claimed
that either foot or hanging wall was
folloaw-dl. The mnlle owners whose
ground was' thus being opened up
brought suit for irhjunctlain in the clr
cult co'aurt, the restranllllng order was
granted and from that deii.rae the ap
peal wasi takein. The court conlclu led.
"The qluestion involved was whether
the owner of a chlinl has a right to
lpursue beyond his side lints a vein or
lode having Its apex in his ground, and
it was dleclaided that he had authority
to enter another's ground only on the
vein Itself. He has no right to explore
within the adjoniing claim, under the
mining law, except upon such conditions.
There is no general right to explore
within the land of any adjoining
patented claimn, whether upon or below
the surface. The right of exploration
Is for the purpose of making mineral dis
coveries, and of what avail would be
this right if no benefit could be obtained
from the discovery made thereby. The
statute gives the appellants the right
to follow the vein which they were
seeking to reach by tunnel, but it con
fers upon them no right to approach it
from any point other than from the
vein or lode itself. In a rectent case
Judge Hawley says: 'Hands off of any
and everything than my surface lines
extending vertically downward until you
prove that you are working up or fol
lowing a vein which has its apex within
your surface lines.' We find no error
in the decree of the circuit court, and
the decree is affirmed."
"Every sleepingroom," says a lecturer

nmatter, and will not be without an in
Jurious effect upon the health of the
community." It is on these practical
points that the woman electing to build

WHERE ARGENTINA STANDS.
United States Not Popular Because It
Has No Capital Invested There.
(l3uenos Ayres H-Ieraid.)
Argentines are completely in the dark
as to any special grounds for gratitude
to the L'nited States. If there is such
reason it does not appear in the history
of the tlnited Stateli or the Argentine re
public. It is from Europe that we get
all the cnlpital for the development of
the rIsources of the republic. The
United States has never invested any
cons.herable capital hero, nor has It
takn an active part in the development
of the country.
Thi great system of the city of
lBueneos Ayres tramway was started by
an Amlerlican, but could get no Amerl
canl capital and fell into the hands of an
English company. The Central Argen
tine railway had a like experience, as did
several other lines. The capital tram
wRay wats started by an American, who
had to let it go to an English company.
The Ensenada railway was so started
and met such an experience. The best
concersiou ever given in this city for
an underground tramway, which will
make fortunes for its owners, was
hawked ablout the United States by its
contcessiontire, who is an American, un
il he lost hope, and It will be carried
Ithlough by Eurolpean capital and enter
rise., An American obtained a conces
sion for a railway on terms such as
never were equaled. He could get no
help to build It. The time expired for
the construction and was twice extended,
to fall at length for the reason that he
could get no capital for it in the United
States. Three times commissioners have
come here to urge the Argentine gov
ernment to vote a subsidy for direct
steamships from the United States, and
$100,000 gold dollars, a year was voted
for the purpose, but every time the
sbheme failed in the United States.
Thlere is not a rod of American rail
way in the republic, not a dollar in
vestedt in banks, tramways or shipping
lines. Seldom do we see in this great
port the American flag flying from the
masthead of a ship. while miles of dock
room in taken with great steamships
flyiug the ittgs of all civilized nations.
There are few commercial houses in the
hands of Americans. Of the imports
frotn the United States by far the great
er lart are in the hands of English and
Germlan houses. We have a German
bank a ith a capital of $5,000,000 English
banks respectively capital of £1,500,000,
£87.o000, £2,000,000 and £1,500,000. The
Spanish bank has a capital of $12,000,000;
the French bank has $2,000,000. The Ital
lans have two banks with a capital of
$3,000,000 and $2,000,000. English rail
ways have invested here amounts which
would stagger even American railway
men. ''he business of the country with
the otltside world is almost exclusively
done with, or by way of, Europe. Even
bills for Amnerican transactions are made
on IEu rope,
Clan any one affect surprise, under such
circnmstances, that the popular interest,
feeling and attention Is directed toward

RAINS IN THE WHEAT BELT
Probable Early Spring Has Been an
Important Stimulant to Trade
Wheat Is Kept Up by the
Scarcity of Supply.
(By Associated Press.)
New York, March 15.-Bradstreet says
that the week ended more favorably
than it began. This Is particularly true
of weather conditions and of affairs in
dustrially, which have improved great
ly In various sections of the country.
Plenty of rains in the entire winter
wheat belt and more especially In the
drouth afflicted south gave an added
impetus to crop conditions.
The apparent advent of the spring
season and its promise of earliness has
been an Important stimulant to most
lines of trade and industry, which were
thus enabled to throw off the fetters
lplaced upon them by storms aad the
entailing Interruptions to transportation.
There Is less excitement, but more
strength, in iron and steel. Wheat was
buoyed up by the report of the smallest
reserves in farmers' hands by the gov
The most active export demand for
some weeks past developed at the de
cline and excited some influence for
Wheat, including flour, exports for the
week aggregate 2,096,280 bushels against
4,085,944 bushels last week, and 4.690,939
bushels in this week last year. Wheat
exports, July 1, 1901, to date, thirty-seven
weeks, aggregate 187,168,627 bushels,
against 142,172,145 bushels last season.

BUSINZUs IN BOSTON PARLALYZED

FALL RIVER STRIKE MONDAY
Outside of Massachusette the Labor
Conditions Are Ezoeptionally
Free From Troubleo-ome
(By Associated Press.)
New York, March 15.- R. G. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade will say
the business In Boston was completely
paralyzed by the strike of freight han
diers and teamsters, which directly af
fected 40,000 men and indirectly rendered
other thousands idle by holding back
supplies of raw material.
Fortunately this struggle was brief,
but another will begin on Monday at
Fall River mills and other textile plants
in that vicinity.
Outside of Massachusetts, however,
the labor situation is exceptionally free
from controversy and even in the coal
mines there is less than the usual agi
tation as April approaches.
Distribution of spring merchandise is
making rapid progress, the most san
gtlne expectations being fully realized
in all sections outside the strike area.
Consumers of Iron and steel products
are still anxious regarding conditions
during the 'next three months.
Official indication of farm reserves on
March 1 were not surprising as to corn,
dealers anticipating that supplies would
be only about one-half of last year, but
the statement that 23 per cent of the
enormous wheat yield remained in farm
ers' hands was not calculated to sustain
values. Needed rains in the southwest
made the market look more favorable
for the next crop. A sustaining feature
was the interior movement of only 2,881,
891 bushels, against 3,902,650 last year,
while on the other hand, the exports
from the United States were but 299,472
bushels, compared wlth 4,962,674 a year
Failures for the week were 232 in the
United States, against 209 last year, and
24 in Canada, against 33 In 1901.
