Because the Illinois and Ohio miners are better organized than are the miners elsewhere, those states aro hardest hit by the strike. Many thousands of nonunion miners are still at work, particularly in the fields of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Utah. The anthracite miners are not affected by the strike. New Montana State Bureau of Mines and Metallurgy Has Already Proven of Value to the Mining Interests Helena, Oct. 8.—The first semi-annual report of the Montana State Bureau of Mines and Metallurgy made recently by President Charles II. Clapp, of the School of Mines, director of the bureau, to < 'hancellor Edward C. Elliott of £he Uni versity shows that this bureau has al ready given considerable service to the mining interests of the state, says A. M. Alderson, secretary to the Montana Min ing association. The bureau has been in existence only since March 1, 3011». The report also shows that the foundation has been laid for much valuable work in the future. Professor H_ B. Pulsifer, last year in charge of thé teaching of metallurgy at the School of Mines, directs the research work and acts as the active field agent, while President Clapp has general admin istrative control. The bureau has been organized into an administrative department and three research departments, geology, mining and metallurgy and safety. Since the organization of the bureau last March, the administrative department has cor responded with the United States geolog ical survey with regard to co-operative work. Although no definite financial co operative plan has been entered into, an informal agreement has been made to prevent duplication of work and to give mutual aid in investigation concerning Montana. Tbe report submitted by the metallurgical department on "Mechanical Sampling in Montana" has been duly re vised and is nearly ready for printing and distribution. Is Preparing Bibliography. The department is also preparing a bibliography of the geological, mining and metallurgical literature pertaining to Montana,- and a directory of the mining companies of the state. Letters have been sent out to over 000 mining operat ors and companies in the Treasure state, and to date two hundred and fifty replies have been received. It is hoped to have this directory ready for publication be fore January 1, 1920. The geoplogical department of the bureau has undertaken the compilation of a report on the various mining dis tricts of Montana. The conpilation of the directory of mining companies and the bibliography of mining literature are supplementary to this investigation. _ The immediate purpose of this report, is to assemble and make readily available tbe large amount of information already col lected by private engineers and geolo gists, the United States geological sur vey. and geological and engineering staffs <>f the larger mining companies of the Htate, concerning Montana geology and mining. Once this information is as sembled it will be possible to indicate those problems which await solution or further investigation. Gives Location of Districts. TIfe bulletin when issued will give the location of the various miniug districts, the means of access, a brief description of the geology and ore deposits, and a summary of past and present mining op erations. Although considerable data concerning most of the districts is avail able, it has already been found necessary to visit some of the districts—Bannack, Highland, Whitehall, Alder Gulch and Summit. The greater part of next sum mer will be spent visiting other districts nbout which sufficient information is lacking. An introductory chapter to the report on the geology of Montana will be made, and it is hoped sufficient infor mation will be obtained to compile a geological map of the state. The geological department, from March 3 to October 1, 1919, has answered over 800 letters of inquiry concerning the val ue of various mineral products. In or der to answer the inquiries accurately it has been necessary in most cases to make neveral qualitative determinations, these totaling about a thousand. This service, of course, has been without charge. A collection of 64 common rocks and minerals has been sent to tbe Raynes ford high school at Itaynesford. Mon tana, for use in class work. A special microscopic study of the minerals in their slag was made for the East Helena plant of the American Smelting and lie fining company. Other investigation "of h confidential nature have been made for both large and small operators. Bulletin on Small Mines. The mining department, under the direction of Professor A. E. Adams, its mining engineer, is undertaking the preparation of a bulletin on timbering and mining methods for small mines and prospects. Sketches and notes have j j tin has been determined and work on it will be pushed in the near future. Notice of its publication will be «iven later. Professor II. B. Pulsifer, metallurgist of the bureau, has devoted nearly all of his time to preparing a bulletin on "Mechanical Ore Sampling in Montana." A 50-ton car of lead-silver ore was sam pled at the three plants in tho state where custom sampling is done, the East Helena plant of the American Smelting and Refining company, the Pittsmont plant of the East Butte Copper company, and the Washoe sampler of the Anaconda Copper Mining company. Altogether six different samplings and over .'iOO chemi cal determinations from the sample pulps were made. The chemical determinations from the various pulps were all found to agree within close limits, and hence the accuracy of the commercial mechanical sampling of low and medium grade ores as carried on in Montana was clearly established. This test should serve to strengthen the confidence that should be had in the mechanical sampling of cus tom ore. During these investigations data was obtained on the construction and opera tion of the three sampling mills mention ed above, and also of the sampling mills of the Washoe Plant of the Anaconda Big German Harvest Insures Food Supply Cable to Great FaJl« Daily Tribune and Chicago Tribune.

Cable to Great Falls Daily Tribune and Chicago Tribune. Copyright, 1919. London, Jsov. 8.—Irishmen of all par ties, except the Ulster Orange fanatics, view with anger the action of Dublin Castle in prohibiting at the demand of the Orangemen a meeting arranged to be held in Caledon, County Tyrone, by the constitutional nationalists, of whom Joe Devlin is the leader. This is part of the new policy of "Ulster" to prevent any nationalist activity in what they claim is their territory. Tyrone, though heavily nationalist, is claimed by them and when the Devlin meeting was announced, Sir James Stronge, grand master of the Orange men, announced it wouldn't be allowed and that Ulster volunteers would be mob ilized to prevent it. On the strength of this. General Haek ett Pain, who was Carson's chief of staff in the Ulster army, and who now is a competent military authority in Ulster, prohibited the meeting on the ground it would lead to disorder. At the same time, of course, he forbade the mobiliza tion of volunteers, but that was exactly what Orangemen wanted. In a speech at the National Liberal club in London, Sir Horace Plunkett de clared the present government of Ireland committed to "Ulster" without responsi bility. This incident is a quick confir mation of Plunkett's statement. This action of Dublin Castle at the de mand of the Orangemen seems designed to drive the last remnants of the consti tutional party in Ireland into the hands of the Sinn Fein extremists.
