ANOTHER FAIRBANKS
QUARTZ STRIKE
FAIRBANKS, March 34.?Eighteen
tons of golden ore averaging $70 to
the ton netted a total of $1,200 to the
owners of the Homestake property on
Wolf creek yesterday. The amalgam
was brought in from the creek yester
day afternoon by A. W. Balzimer, the
staker of the claim, and was retorted
last evening by L. M. Drury.
The result is very satisfactory to
the owners of the claim, for it means
a continuation of the same kind of ore
as was mined some months ago. The
first run made this winter averaged
$77 to the ton.
The tunnel on the stringer, which
has a width of from ten to twelve in
ches, is now 260 feet in length. The
main tunnel is in the hill a distance
of 750 feet, but no ledges are being
worked from it. Two men are being
worked at the property now.

DEMOCRATIC PANIC
NOT IN SIGHT
_
No Democratic panic is in sight for
the United States, notwithstanding
the fact that three and a half months
have passed since the election of
Woodrow Wilson and three weeks
since his induction into the office of,
president.
Among hard-headed business men
who could see 110 rhyme, reason nor
sense in the prophecies made when
Wilson was elected, that the country
would proceed at once into bankrupt
cy. is N. P. Sol tier, cashier of the
Union Trust &. Savings Company, of
this city.
lie said last fall when the result!
of the election became known that i
the business of the country, as a;
whole, was satisfactory, and that it
would be insanity to allow a handful
of curb-brokers in New York to scare
the United States into a panic by
bidding call money to the skies.
.Mr. Solner spent weeks conferring
with the most prominent bankers of
the country early this year, and has
returned to Seattle more fully con
vinced than ever that business, left
to itself, not tampered with by manip-;
| ulators is in splendid condition.
A special bulletin from the First
' National Bank, of Boston, under date
of March 15, is therefore especially
pleasing to him. He calls attention
of the Times to the following extract.,
"New Hngland is maintaining a vol-i
nine of business substantially larger
than at this time last year. The im-j
provemem m uusun-ss duuuueui., i
which becomes noticeable in Febru-,
ary. continues. In general, demand is
large, while supply is being held in
control by business men who are en-|
deavoring to give due weight to the)
several adverse factors in the situa-j
tion. In most lines of New England j
industry the new tariff has been
largely discounted, and matters put!
in shape for the 'operation.' It is'
commonly conceded that if tariff re
vision must take place, it could not
come at a more opportune period.
The much-talked of general falling off
in business has thus far failed to ma
terialize. In its place has come a;
slight relaxation of conservatism, the
statistics recording a slightly freer
movement in trade."
The extract quoted is a complete
and convincing answer to alarmists, j
It is also a rebuke to the numerous
gentry who crawl into their holes and i
take the money with them every time |
the country elects a Democratic presi
dent.?Seattle Times.
