Wednesday, December 25tb, 1907. CHAKLES A. HOPP Editor and Proprietor. PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY The announcement that a committee representing the American Mining Congress will invito all mining men in Alaska ?*? . the Northwest generally, to moot in Seattle, is attracting much attention. The purpose is to collect accurate informal ir that will enable the committer to report at the next session of the American Miniug Con gress all facts relating to mining in the sections indicated which tend to show that amendments to the present national mining code should bo enact ed. The %,;iiing Congress has been re quested to recommend changes that would meet special conditions in AIhs ka. Secretary of the luterior Garfield, when the subject was brought to his attention, suggested ihat proposed changes should be recommended by some miniug organization. This in volved an inquiry iuto the conditions complained of, and this committee was appointed to get the facts. The Record aouoauces that the annual repiw t of Governor Hoggatt has been turned loose at Washington, D. C. The population of Alaska is estimated at 31,000, besides about 7,000 itinerants, who don't count. Our gov ernors are never optimistic when it comes to population. We suggest that the salary of the governor hereafter be based on the population, to see what that will do. The contract for carryiug the mail between Juneau and Douglas Island has been awarded to representatives of the Juuean Ferry & Navigation Com pany. u01e", who has held the job for years, ha* beeu efficient and faithful, but there is no doubt that the new arrangement wi'! oe better, aud the service may be still further improved. The Juneau Record asserts that the '?United Press" is responsible for the; malicious lies about fhe Tread well that are published iu Seattle and hiuts that the Dispatch man represents the Alas ka end of the concern. The Dispatch man comes forward with a general 1 denial. A Freak Shot Once in a great while, a combination of favorable circumstances results in a phenomenal freak shot, such as we have to describe. Shalt No. 27 of the American Zinc, Lead and Smelting Co's. property at Wei' ^ .kr, Mo., was being sunk by Geo. Burress. At a depth of 100 feet below the surface, eight holes, G feet deep were drill a from the outer edge of the shaft toward the sump cut holes. They were loaded with eighty-seven l}yx8 sticks (about 30 pounds) of Forcite gelatine powder. This explosion resulted in hurling a boulder about 10 feet out of the shaft's mouth, s total lift of 110 feet, and land ed it oa the surface about 25 feet to one side. The size of this boulder is about 4x4x5 I.-et and weighs 1*2,352 pounds or about G tons. The size of the shaft up which it was blown is 5ft. x 7 ft. in tho clear, cribbed with 2xG's laid flat. Near the top of the shaft is a scratch on the cribbing a fraction of au inch deep and about 4 feet long, The grazing of the boulder at tms point in its upward flight was doubtless responsible for the curv ing of its trajectory from the per pendicular to one side, so that it lit on the surface dump instead of falling perpendicularly to the bottom again. The boulder may be seen by the curious at the mouth of the shaft above designated, Webb City, Mo. ? Mines nnd Minerals for December. Can You Afford One? if so, give a diamond; they never grow old and increase in value as the years pass. And because of their beauty their possession is a joy forever.

"1 was born in Texas," said one, "and 1 know where the house is, too." The next little fel low said: "1 know where 1 was born too. It was right here in Mexico and I can take you to the place." The third little boy said: "I don't know where T was born but I kuow that there wasn't anybody at home but grandma and me, cause my maw was at tho club." ? Ex.
