The Company is formed to produce a
inetai not heretofore made in America
"Metallic Tin,", of which 71,248,407 pQunds
were last year imported, the gross value
of which was $16,746,117. The company
will mine the valuable tin deposits owned
by it in South Dakota, seven miles from
Iron Station, ou the Burlington & Mis
souri River R. R., which railroad will
Boon be extended through the company's
property, the company will erect custom
concentrating plants in South Dakota and
smelting reduction works at Niagara Kails
for the treatment of tin ores generally,
•lther those owjied by the company or by
ethers, and for the manufacture "of bab
bitts, solder and alloys; and for these
purposes the company will erect custom
concentrating plants wherever a sufficient
quantity of ore can be obtained.
The property owned by the company
comprises over 80 acres of the richest de
posits known to exist in South Dakota,
where there are reefs of great dimensions
containing large quantities of black oxide
of tin, than which there is none better
or purer In the world. At the lowest
price of tin for past ten years, this ore
will pay well. But at its price during
pant two years the profits will be much
greater than those of the best average
of copper or gold mines.
This company is the pioneer in estab
lishing in America the business of mining j
and smelting tin. Such rapid strides have
been made by the I'nited States in the
development of its iron, steel, copper,
lead and zinc industries that it now con- ■
trols the market for these metals, as it
Boon will for tin also.
The company using improved machin
ery, new methods and processes con
trolled by it, will produce refined tin of
or the very best quality without loss in
bmeltlng, and, with the abundant supply
of ore now available, will produce pun>
tin at less cost than ever. The company
will purchase tin ores under long term
contracts with mine owners generally.

New York, Jan. 30.—James J. Hill left

"The completion of the railroad deal

says: "To the ever-recurring question, "Is
there TIN in paying quantities in the

emphatic YES." Referring to Bear Gulch

he in part says: "I have broken speci

thoroughly disseminated n is in some de
posits, and one which i lecall is compar
able for size to the great Homestake mine,
and in my opinion is alone capable of
employing as many men. It is my opin
ion, further, that this tin district, prop
erly worked, is capable of supplying all
the tin used in the United States, but it
must be worked in some such system and
scale as the Homestake or Calumet and
Hecla. Great as is the development of
the gold mining there it will yet be ex
ceeded by tin and iron, metals just as use
ful if not quite so 'noble.' "
The company's initial concentrating
plant at its mines will have a daily ca- j
pacity of 130 tons of ore, from which I
eight to ten tons of high grade concen
trates (55 to 60 per cent metallic tin) will
be produced and shipped to its electric
smelting works to be erected at Niagara
Falls, where the electric power will be
supplied by the Nigara Fails Power Co.,
and where the company has secured a I
most desirable site for its plant. The

Individual Work. . j
The editor of Outing, Casper Whitney,
is handicapped in point of timeliness on
football information because of the fact
that his publication is a monthly, but his
standing is so strong as a fair and just
writer, that admirers of football will feel
disposed to overlook the fact that hie
February comment comes late. Mr. Whit
•ney, in the current issue of Outing, dis
cusses southern football to a considerable
length, and comes back again to a final
word on the western work of 1900.
He first makes up an all-western team,
on which he puts four Minnesota men,
and then discusses individual play as fol
At center, Page of Minnesota, who has
played the position for three years, is easily
In the lead. Of the other western centers,
Scow of Wisconsin and Ely of lowa come
next —with very little choice between them.
For guards, Riorden of Wisconsin and Dfetz
of Northwestern are to be preferred, although
Mueller of Minnesota and Flynn of Minne
sota are nearly their equals. In the tackle
position, Curtis of Wisconsin may be selected
for one, while Warner of lowa and Fee and
Tweet of Minnesota are so evenly matched
for the other position that a selection among
them is difficult. As Warner is brilliant as
well as steady and experienced, the choice,
should be rather given to him. Fell of Chi
cago should come next.
At end, Aune of Minnesota and Snow of
Michigan stand out conspicuously as superior
to all others. Next in the list should be
placed, without hesitation, Hoyt of Minne
sota and Juneau of Wisconsin.
Praise for Dobie.
Behind the line, in half-back position,
he considers a number of men, giving
first choice to Larson of Wisconsin and
Henry of Chicago, with Sheldon of Chi
cago and Van Valkenburg of Minnesota
second. For quarter-back he says:
There are only two candidates in the west
for the position of quarterback. These are
Dobie of[ Minnesota and Williams of lowa.
Both men are quick and accurate in passing
and runners of great swiftness. In all-round
play and in genera! knowledge of the game.
the two are about equal. As a field general,
Williams is the superior of Dobie, but in
catching and running back punts, Dobie has
no equal in the we3t, if, indeed, he has in the
entire country. Dobie, too, is a punter sec
ond to none, and in aiding the runner in in
terference is slightly better than Williams.
The position of quarter, therefore, goes to
Dobie; allowing Henry of Chicago to captain
and direct the running of the team.
Coming to full-back, h« gives Knowlton
of Minnesota first place, with Sweeny of
Michigan second. •'Knowlton," he says,
"is a long and accurate punter, a reliable
catcher, and a brilliant runner with the
ball. He has kicked a number of 'drop'
goals, and goals from placement, from
the field, but his strongest point, the one
in which he has no equal, is on defensive
play in backing up the line."
Here is Mr. Whitney's all-western
eleven for 1900:
Page (Minnesota), center.
Riordeu (Wisconsin) and E. Dtetz (North
Curtis (Wisconsin) and Warner (Iowa),
Aune (Minnesota) and Snow (Michigan),
Dobie (Minnesota), quarter.
Henry (Chicago) and Lairaoa (Wisconsin),
Knowlton (Minnesota), full.
It will be seen that this foremost foot
ball writer of the country maintains the
same interest In Minnesota when treat
ing of the team individually thai he has
in referring to the team in general terms.
His comment illustrates anew the stand
ing of the university eleven.
National Cycling; Association Will
Probably Make Some Changes.
New York, Jan. 30.—At the annual meet
ing of the National Cycling association, to
be held in this city next Tuesday, some
important changes in the racing rules will
be submitted for adoption. The introduc
tion of motor pacing has made a change in
the riding of paced, middle distance racers
and the old rules drawn up for use when
| the pacing machines were driven by mus
cle alone will not fit the new conditions.
Elkes, McDuffie and Michael have made j
suggestions to the association. It is the
effort of the association and the better
class of riders to do away with team work
in sprint races as far as possible. If the
new rule is adopted there will be only two
men left in the final for all championship
sprints. This plan will be followed up
using semi-finals until only two men are
left. This will do away with team work
certainly in the final and the best men
ought to win every time.
