AMERICAN MINING CONGRESS STILL
POUNDS AWAY AT APPOINT
MENT OF AN OVERSEER.
IRWIN MAHON'S CIRCULAR
Mining Man Gives Reasons Why Some
One Who Knows the Industry Should
Be in President's Cabinet.
The American Mining Congress, which re*
cently met in i)eadwood, M. I)., and which will
rlect next year in Portland, ()re., will not cease
to carry on agitation in favor of a recognition
for the great mtining interests by the federal
government in the shape of the creation of a
cabinet position devoted to the mining in
Irwin Mahon, the secretary of the congress,
iv prosecuting tlh campaign during the inter
tlission before the next congress meets. lie
is sending out a circular letter emphasizing the
need for the establishment of a department of
minitlg on the same basis as the department of
agriculture. lle lays stress upon tle' gorod
work the miners and the mining interests can
do by helping carry on the agitation.
In the course of his letter he says:
Mining Should Be Recognized.
"The mining industry of America needs no
apology from thiose seeking recognition for it
at the hands of the government. To this,
more than to any oither cause, this country
can attribute its wonderful strides and its pres.
tige among thle nations of the earth. It hl.s
been the prime incentive for the building of
our giant transcontinental railways, turning a
great tide of emigration to tile mineral states.
and in less than half a century has added
more titan four billions of new and imperishl
able wealth in gold alone to the world, sus
taining governments on a sound money basis,
and making possible the advancement of civil.
ization, and imanifolding our moral, educa.
tional and scientific advantages.
"lDuring the calendar year 9g03, the United
States produced $.8o,wio,0oo itn gold and $71,.
W57.57S in silver, making a grand total of
$151.757,575, distributed as follows:
Alaska, $8,464.75o: Arizona, g$8,46,513: ('ali

South Dakota, $7,4053,55, anld Utah, $17,599,t.2.
''And when we add to these two great forces
of nature (goll and silver) that are today pay
ing for all the wonderful advancement of
American enterprise. American achievement.
the products of our iron, coal, copper, clay,
and stone mines, that are producing the mate
rialb out of which tvery tool necessary to drive
all human work to a success is manufactured,
including the manufacturing establishmentsc
themselves, is it reas.nable that a deaf ear
should he turned to those who plead with
servants high in authority, to foster and pro
mote this great, grand, American industry, as
agriculture. commerlllltce. manufacture aind trans
portation are now provided for by a depart.
mnent, not a 'bureau.' devoted to scicntitic re.
search and expelriment.
'"The miining indutry of America is not only
a power in this land of ours, but it is thli great
mnotive power in all the industrial affairs of
the world. All tbuiness interests are intlu.
enced Iby it. There is not a single exception
the world over. ('.Conseqrently its encourage.
Inent and protection is a national safeguard.
What Is Wanted.
"To place the executive branch of our gov.
ernmtcnt in close touch with the entire fiell
of mineral production, just as is now through
the department of agricultural production, and
not through a bureau. attached to some other
departments, should be the aim and purpose
of all loyal Amcricans, especially those wllo
reside ill mining states and territories. The
prospector and tile miner has equal rights with
the farmer who has his sample of unknown
ore analyzed by a government expert, and the
proper treatment pointed out, as has the
forumer to have his soil analyzed or samples of
seed supplied to hin free of charge front
W~ashington. The justification of this govern.
nlental co-operation is exactly the satme in both
"It is ntot a plea for assistance, nor a bid
for office that prompts tlhe suggestion that a
cabinet department of mines aid mining is
needed. It romles fromt a clear conception of
national requirements; from a knowledge that
suchl a department is needed as a public meras
ure; tile evidence, that however eflicicint state
supervision may be, it lacks the iron-clad
potency of federal jurisdiction, it comes fron
the consciousness in the minds of many thltt
the great industry that has furnished, and will
continue to furnish so great a part of our
national wealth, shronld have the attentimon
that will enable it to lie of even still greater
good to the nation of the twentieth cFntury.
VWhat mining has done for the nation is but a
reflex of what it can do. As a business prop.
osition it would be the best paying investment
tile nation ever tmalde to create a lnational de
partment of mines and mining, and have a
representative of tile nation's greatest industry
itn the president's cabinet. The matter is not
a narrow one of place or petty politics; it is
one of wide import and should be treated in a
broad gauge way. It should be tile province
and purpose of our public men to conserve
the interests of their country, said where duty
and policy so plainly dictate the way it should
not be dillficult to follow it."
