BIY A.S.O(IATED PRI'1,'R. New York, April ,o.-IThomas A. Edi son has a scheme for extracting the un told millions of dollars worth of gold that lie in the immense "low grade" gravel quartz beds in California, Now Mexico, Arizona and Northern Mexico. They cannot be workotl now because the old-fashioned placer hydraulic system is lacking and the gold runs in too small quantities to make mining profitable under other systems. An air 'blast is employed by Mr. Edison in his solution to separate the gold from the mass. The system, it is claimed, has now reached a working basis. Experiments near Santa Fe, N. M., by Fletcher Chapman, one of Mr. Edison's as sistants, has caused Mr. Edison a(n Mr. (haplman to prodluce a machine which they NEW ZINC SMELTER TALK OF PROPOSED INDUSTRY FOR THIS CITY REVIVED BY AN IM PORTANT TELEGRAM. Talk is Ibeing revived of the construc tion in Butte of a zinc smelter to treat the ores of this and adjoining camps that run largely to that metal. A few years ago there was general ex pectation that a company would erect such a smelter near Boulder, but the undertak in" fell through. Now the subject is re vived and many persons believe that be fore many months BIutte will boast of the only smelter of the kind in the West. The possibility of such a smelter has bleen heightened by the information that Scnator W. A. Clark a few days ago wired to Martin Buckley, foreman of the Tra vonia mine, ownled by the senator, asking how much zinc ore the mine would yield per day. The reply was 500 tons. While Mr. Clark said nothing in his message about the erection of a smelter, the fact that he wired from New York, where there is great interest In zinc min ing and dealin't in the product, leads to the belief that he had such an idea in contemplation ant sought additional in formation. It is conceded by all mining men that a custom zinc smelter would prove a boon to Blutte. Many mines that run heavily in zinc could be profitably worked, as they also carry by-products of gold, silver and lead, FISHING RATES. OREGON SHORT LINE.

MONEY FOR STRIKERS According to a telegram received by Clarence Smith of the American l.abor Union the situation in the luniberw grk ers' strike in llumboldt county, Calilot nia, has taken on a serious aspect, and several hundred strikers are in dire need of financial assistance. The telegram was as follows: "Have l'resident Dan McDonald come immediately. The conp any says it will starve us out. It is trying to disorganise our union. In order to keep the men here and win otft it will cost us not less than S,ouoo per week. We are fighting hard. J. R. GORDON, "President. "JOSEPH' WIEBSTER. Secretary." There are about 6no men involved, com prising three unions in the redwood lum ber district, the Crescent City. Newblrg andt Smitlh River. The lumber com panies have organized to defeat the unions, and as they own all the storel in the district they practically control the situation. When the situation became known to the American I.alaor Union here Clarence Smith telegraphed $50o and expects to take steps to raise $j,ooo to assist the strikers later on. Dan McDonald left yesterday for Kal ispell and the coast and is due in a few days at the Denver convention, so the situation in California will be put in the hands of one of the San Francisco organ izers. If the situation continues serious there probably will be an assessment on the various unions afniliated with the A. L. U. declare will reclaim go per cent of the gold from the gravel. In hydraulic mining it was thought re markable if 75 per cent was washed out. One man, it is claimed, can run scores of separators. The gravel is first dug out of the ground with a steel shovel, conveyors then carry it to selves that separate it into particles of uniform size. Each separator is designed to handle gravel of a certain size and the gravel is automatically distributed to' the hopper of its proper machine. Ihe gravel falls through a narrow slit before a rotary blower, which drives a full blast of air against the gravel. The gold, being heavier, falls to the bottom of the machine, but all of the lighter gravel and sand is blown into sep arate co(miipartiments. MEXICAN MINES FOR AMERICA P'EC'IAL. TO TIHE INTERI MOUNTAIN. Salt l.ake. April a2.-"lt is only a ques tion of a few years when the mines of Mexico will be controlled by American capital and that country will then enjoy an era of wonderful prosperity." So said Dennis Ryan of St. Paul, Minn.. who ao years ago was prominent in Utah mining and business circles. Mr. Ryan is a brother of P. J. Ryan of this city, whose influence in local mining circles has never been underestimated by those who know his share in contributing to the development of Utah's resources. Dennis Ryan has just returned front a four months' stay in Old Mexico, where numerous mining properties in which he is interested have responded to devjeop nment work with assurances of remunera tion. Speaking of the outlook for an In creased mineral output from Mexico, and with particular reference to the state of Jalisco, where his own properties are lo cated, Mr. Ryan said: "The Mexicans have not yet learned to mine by modern methods. They are un al,:e to cope with water and insist upon carrying out the ore on their backs, in stead of installing machinery for handling the product. Systematic, up-to-date scientific develop ment of a property is unknown to them, but that will come, and is coming quickly as a result of the influence of American capital and American methods of work."

JURY BELIEVES 'HUGHES AND FIDS 'HIM INNOCENT aMn Accused of Beating Another in a Controversy Following a Dog Fight is Found Not Guilty. One day last week Evan N. Hughes was going home from work when he dis covered that his dog was being entirely put out of business by a larger canine. The strange dog got the best of Hughes' pup in the first round, and after that there was nothing to it. About the time Hughes interfered to save his dog Rogers, owner of the other dog, happened along, and from that time on they disagreed as to what happened. Rogers says Hughes attacked him with a pick handle, beating hiim about the head, while Hughes says Rogers began the trouble by throwing rocks. Rogers had Hughes arrested, charged with assault in the third degree. In Justice Colligan's court yesterday Hughes testified that his wife and baby, standing in the front yard, narrowly es caped being struck by one of the missiles thrown by Rogers. so he being deeply In censed, started after Rogers, and proved that if his dog could not whip Rogers' dog lie could lick Rogers. The jury was inclined to believe Hughes was telling the truth about the affair and acquitted him of the charge of assault.

"I was sent by the Hemp Planters' as sociation to China to arrange for the em ployment of laborers who would settle tn the country. The Chinese do not im migrate in large numbers to this country, but I found them best suited to work in the hemp fields. I contracted for as many as I could."
