A Message From Mr. Taft
Commending Aim of the
Congress-In Absence of
Any Action Headquarters
Will Remain at Denver.
Pittsburg, Doc. 5. VYJien the fourth
and last day's session of the eleventh
annual convention of the American
Mining Congress opened here today.
It was apparent that the unfinished
business would be cleaned up by this
afternoon, and the meeting, which is
pronounced the most successful in the
life of the organization, would ad

Taft was read before the convention
this morning. The following Is the
message: "1 am glad of the opor
tunity to express my Interest In the
Important work which the American
Mining Congress is doing in behalf of
the mining industry ami I desire to
encourage and co-owrate in this work
In every possible way.
"The mining industry of this coun
try, which is second only to agri
culture in its contribution to national
wealth, which furnishes more than
66 per cent of the total freight traf

.than a million men in its difficult
and dangerous tasks, deserves all the
assistance which this government can
"No country Is so rich in those re
sources which make foi great and
permanent wealth as is the I'nited
States, but this condition of affairs
has helped to develop the national
habit of waste in the use of our for
ests, our oils, minerals and other re
sources. Fortunately, however, the
public conscience of the country is
awakening to both the loss of life
and the waste of materials in all of
our industries, and we must see to
it that the movement is guided wisely
and carried forward to success."
The report of the committees on
mineral conditions in Utah, Virginia,
Arkansas, Missouri and Colorado and
on resolutions were among the Im

ONLY NAVAL MANEUVERS
The Dutch Government's Definition of
Movements of Warships Along the
The Hague, Dec. 5. The government
of the Netherlands has declined to dig
nify the movements of the Dutch war
ships, the battleship Jacob Van Heem
skerk and the cruisers Kriesland and
Gelderland, along the coast of Vene
zuela from Puerto Cabello to La Guai
ra, as a naval demonstration. It as
serts that this maneuver was only the
ordinary exercise of the cruisers.
The government received no inform
ation concerning the statement that
four American warships are expected
at Curacao at the beginning of January
but it is thought here that, now that
that the presidential election is over,
the United States may possibly lend
Holland more effective assistance than
tho moral support already promised.

What Does A Business
Education Mean to You?
IT MAY MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
RICHES AND POVERTY
a'co.MFORTABLE HOME AND A SHANTY; A GOOD LIVING AND
A BARE EXISTENCE; A SALARY OF $100 PER MONTH AND M0
PERMONTII, OR A SALARY OF $200 PER MONTH AND $60 PER
MONTH. HOW MAY A BUSINESS EDUCATION BE ACQUIRED?
In two ways. By going into a store or an office and "working" your
way up, learning your business by experience. But this takes years of
hard work at low wages. The sensible way is to take a thorough
course In an "up-to-date" school that makes a specialty of training
young people for business. The young man or the young woman
who is prepared to do the work required "right and quickly" is al
ways in demand. During the past two years, we could have placed
in good positions double the number we did, if we could have per
suaded double the number of students to take a thorough business
course. So far as we know, every student who completed the course
we recommended is now employed at a satisfactory salary or is In
business for himself. What others have done you can do if you will.

Worst Thing at Last Happened
to the Cruiser
THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA
Where the Ill-Fated Vessel
Rests Again After Having
Just Been Removed From
the Rock-There is Hope
of Raising it
New I'.edford, Mass., Dec. 5. The
cruiser Yankee, which had been raised
after going on Spindle Rock, sunk at
the entrance of the harbor while being
towed to this port. The cause of the
accident, a culmination of a series of
misfortunes, which had befallen the
Yankee, was an unusually heavy sea
kicked up by a high northwest gale.
The Yankee, in -the tow of the tugs
John Harlan and Powhattan and con
voyed by the naval colder, Lebanon,
was proceeding slowly from Spindle
Rock to this port.
In the gale and heavy seas the haw
sers parted for the tenth time and the
tug John Harlan was trying to con
nect another tow line when she was
lifted on a wave and slammed against
the side of the cruiser. The impact
smashed in a port compartment where
three air compressors were at work.
The water which poured through the
open port disabled the air pump, after
which the compartment filled rapidly.
The cruiser did not sink at once.
Captain J. T. McAllister who was in
charge of the marine engines of the
wrecking work, in view of the danger
warned the members of the wricking
crew to leave the ship. All but six of
the ninety-two men left the Yankee
itnd. Khe was then, straightened as well
as the wreckers could do it and an at
tempt was made to drag her to Penlk's
Island and beach her. This plan seem
ed likely to succeed, when not far from
the island, the cruiser reeled suddenly
and sank in forty-two feet of water.
Commander Marsh, of the Yankee,
Captain McAllister. Engineer Wether
spoon and six men of the wrecking
crew who were on board ran up the
rigging and later jumped safely on
I board the Powhattan. The Yankee
went down in a sheltered position and
'took bottom on an even keel, resting on
the sand. Her forward deck, spars and
the top of her funnels are above the
surface of the water.
