WEALTH FOR THE POORS

Bootblacks, Servant Girls and
Clerks Reap Rich Harvest
n, in Nevada.
Special to Tk Journal.
Goldfield, Nev., Nov. 10.Never be
fore in the mining history of the
United States has there been such an
amazing tale of suddenly acquired
riches as that which is being tola this
week in Goldfield. Stocks, which a
?her
ea ago were being vainly hawked on
streets at 8 to 10 cents a share,
have sold within the last twenty-four
hours as high aa $15 a share. Mines
which were optimistically capitalized
at $1,000,000 are developing into bo
nanzas with $50,000,000 or more in
sight and further untold millions in
undoubted prospect.
As fast as the stock in any mine is
put upon the market it is oversub
scribed twenty times over and doubles
in value with almost incredible swift
ness. The whole country is buying
Goldfield stocks, to such an extent that
the orders pouring in upon all local
brokers keep thirty operators in this
town working day and night. A tidal
wave, is the only adequate metaphor
descriptive of these conditions as they
actually exist.
Bootblack Sells at Profit.
To dimly realize the effect this boom
is having on the fortunes of every man
and woman who invested even the most
meager Bums in Goldfield stocks,
whether during the last year or as late
as yesterday, one does not have to
travel further than the nearest corner
of a Goldfield street. I every store,
or restaurant, or saloon, visible from
the corner chosen, there is somebody
who is richer by just so many hundreds
or thousands of dollars than he was a
month ago.
The bootblack who owns a little
stand at Crook and Main streets paid
S140 for 500 shares of stock last
August and sold his holdings last Sat
urday at a net profit of $350.
The barber who can be seen work
Sag at the chair nearest the window, a
few doors beyond, made what he
thought was a daring investment last
July, by borrowing $370 with which to
^uy 1,000 shares. Last Wednesday
Afternoon he sold his stock, repaid his
loan and put $1,750 in the bank.
j Boy Makes 329,800.
'f"In the offices of the big concerns it
is the simple fact that every stenog
rapher, every clerk, every bookkeeper
baa made a big or little pot of money
t$y investments in the mining stocks'
OJL either Goldfield, Tonopah, Fairview
investments, especially
of those made by the young
Women, of the most haphazard charac
ter.
A particularly interesting case is
afforded by Tommy Nugent, a 17-year-
old office boy. About a year ago,
Tommy, who has been earning his own
bread since he was 12, spent the $100
which he had painfully saved out of
the earnings of four years, and an
other $100 which he received as his
share of a dead uncle's estate, for
2,000 shares of stock. The price was
JO cents a share for this stock when
Tommy bought it. This office boy
las sold his holdings for $30,000 in
4pld cash.
What is happening at these Goldfield
sines is also happening at Tonopah to
\e Tonopah Mining, the Montana, the
jnopah Extension and the Belmont
happening at Fairview to the Nevada,
Hills, the Eagle, the Eagle's Nest and
the Hailstone happening at Manhattan
to the Consolidated, Stray Dog, the
jumping Jack, Indian Camp, and the
As-You-Like-It. Surely, these are great
flays for Nevada, with the greatest yet
to come.

Washington, Nov. 10.Several wire

they merely indicated that the squadron

that the messages contained private in

Show Oriental Trade Pos

to
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 10.Henry E.
Beed director of exploitation or the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific exposition, de
clares that oriental trade and its pos
sibilities will be one of the object les
sons of the exposition. In an article
dealing with the possibilities for the
growth of this trade, Mr. Beed says:
"In the exposition of 1909 the two
shores of the Pacific ocean will be
brought together, commercially, for the
first time in history, and the placing of
oriental commerce upon a practical
working basis cannot fail to be one of
the substantial results of the meeting.
"Much has been written about ori
ental trade in the last half dozen years,
but few persons have any definite idea
of what it is, actually or prospectively.
To those to whom distance lends en
chantment to the scene, the orient, from
the time of Marco Polo, has been the
realm of splendor, whose people are
rolling in wealth and ready and anxious
to buy and sell all commodities known
to man. At closer range, the view dis
closes more than one-half the popula
tion of the globe, some of whom are the
favored of fortune, while the vast ma
jority are limited in purchasing power,
and therefore subsist on the barest
necessities.
What the United States govern
ment, in its reports on commercial rela
tions, treats as Asia and Oceanica, com
prises nearly 12.000,000 square miles
and has a population of about 860,000,-
000. According to the latest available
statistics, it does a gross foreign trade

"The United States, with less than

QUEST FOR DIAMONDS,
MAY BE SUCCESSFUL
Backers of the Xenia Expedition
)if Declare that "Find" Has
."'TV Been Made.
London, Nov. 10.Even tho the gov
ernment sent a warship to prevent the
unlucky expedition of tho Xema from
landing on the islands off the coast ot
South Africa that are said to contain
diamonds, the Collis syndicate declares
that a "find" of diamonds has been
made as a result of the expedition.
The Xema is now some distance on
its way home, but the prospects of get
ting in on the ground floor in a ven
ture that promises much considerably
cheered up the stockholders at their
recent meeting to discuss future plans.
The Xema was sent to South Africa
some months ago by the Collis diamond
syndicate for the purpose of visiting
some islands off the, coast that were
believed to contain diamonds. Mr.
Griffith was the expert of the syndi
cate in South Africa, and when Dr.
Jameson refused permission for the
Xema to land he began looking around
for other opportunities to procure the
procious stones.
Close on the heels of the announce
ment at the stockholders' meeting that
more than $50,000 had been expended
on the Xema expedition, Sir Alexander
Muir-Mackenzie told of the "find"
made by *their agent.
"Last week, at Capetown, Mr. Grif
fith was offered some diamondif erous I
farms near a proved mine, and he ca-1
bled to Mr. Kenyon-Collis to ask him i
to join the venture. Mr. Kenyon-Collis
immediately replied that he would
finance him, and it is his intention to
register a syndicate to deal with this
enterprise on the same basis as that
upon which the Collis diamond syndi
cate was founded."
Only a small sum would havo to be
subscribed. Mr. Kenyon-Collis had in
timated his readiness to give the ex
isting shareholders the prior right to
come into his venture, and to subscribe
the shares* pro rata on their present
holdings. Further, he had undertaken
to hand over 2,000 of the shares free
of charge for the benefit of the share
holders.
In conclusion, Sir Alexander said that
no doubt the trip of the Xema had
been a bit of a gamble," but they
had acted thruout honestly and squarely.
