action the power and habit of reflec
tion the power of growth and cllic
ience or the power to make good
The purpose of the school is to edu
cate the child to cultivate his physi
cal mental and moral power To en
large his ideas broaden his horzon
give him habits of industry and self
control or to give him such skill
knowledge and principles as will make
for good citizenship and social ellic
This work is best done in the public
schools Hero wo have all the factors
necessary for an embrjo democracy
and if the public school is to fulfill its
highest purpose it must minister to the
weal of the nation
In the primary school the child
learns to use the tools of education
reading writing spelling arithmatic
and the use of good English While
in the Grammar school he acquires
knowledge of practical and cultural
value in such subjects as history lit

A principal Broad minded wide

From the common school our boys

ter the high school the peoples col
lege This school should be intensely
practical Il should give a major
course in harmony with the industries
of the community If the community
is agricultural the school should be an
Agricultural High School If mining
a Mining High School We believe
Kingman should have a Mining High
School of such interest that it would
draw every boy and girl in Mohave
county within its walls and carry for
ward the work begun in the common
schools ottering necessary preparation
for those who wish to enter college
and to those who wish to get useful
information and skill that may be of
real service in making a living pre
pare courses that will attract and hold
them until completed
Mohave county should have a Coun
ty High School giving courses in min
ing business normal training domes
tic science and academic This is
easily obtainable Tho state oilers a
large sum the county is large and
wealthy tho boys and girls are the
most valuable asset we possess and
should bo given the best preparation

With tho spirit of confidence and
good will between pupils and teachers
between home and school with a com
munity spirit of progress and educa
tional encouragement which makes
i and all boost for better schools better
advantages and a peoples college for
Kingman If we are true to ourselves
and our children performing our dut
ies with good courageous hopeful
hearts ours shall be the joy of achieve
ment the reward of things well done

Two Utah Camps
At a meeting a few evenings ago of
the Utah Society of Engineers there
were some facts presented regarding
two of the mining camps of Utah that
are of general interest The two
camps under discussion hy these en
gineers eminently fitted by training
and by personal work in the mines to
speak of conditions were Bingham
and Park City
The history of Bingham was sKetch
ed from the time when the first claims
were located in the fall of 18l on to
the day of the steam shovel operations
and the big copper production of the
present time The wagon roads into
the camp in the early days of xis
tence were later followed by a rail
road with transportation facilities
steadily improving as time passed on
The early day mining facilities were
later improved when electricity be
came the motive power materially re
ducing the cost of operation within
recent years too has come the steam
shovel handling immense quantities
of ore at a very small cost and the in
vention of new milling and smelting
devices followed by the erection of
great reduction works
During the thirty years between
1870 and 1900 the camp produced ore
having a value of more than 75000
000 Since the latter date has come
the development of the g eat p irphyry
deposits that have- made this one of
the big copper camps of the West
Today statistics presented show the
camp is producing from 28000 to 14
000 tons of ore dnil has over 200
000000 tons of commercial ore avail
able and is paying annual dividends of
The camp of Pirk City affords as in
teresting a history as does Bingham
The paper presented upon this camp
stated that to date there has been
taken from its mines 100000000
ounces of silver 175000 ounces of gold
300000 tons of lead 9 10000 tons of cop
per and 30000 tons zinc The total
output of these live metals had a
money value of 8500 000 of which
35000000 has readied the stockhold
ers of the various companies in the
form of dividends The silver lead
ores here are described as occuring in
fissure veins or in bedded deposits
connected with tissures
Park City with its various classes
of ores has done much toward evolv
ing new ideas in ore treatment The
silicious ores prominent in the earlier
das of the camp called for special
treatment which was devised and
proven successful The sulphide ores
presented another problem that was
solved and later came the heavier
lead ores bringing new concentration
devices of value to the mining world
Interesting to note also are the
drainage facilities provided at this
camp Adit tunnels drain the On
tario Daly system to a depth of 2500
feet under the collar of the Daly
Judge shaft as well relieving to some
extent the water situation in the whole
camp The Anchor tunnel of the
Daly Judge and the Alliance tunnel of
the Silver King each carry away near
ly 1000 gallons of water per minute
in addition to the 0000 to 10000 gal
lons from the Ontario Adits also
reach the 500 and 900 foot levels of the
Silver King shaft the bottom of which
is 500 feet above the Ontario tunnel
These are a few of tho salient points
in the history and present conditions
in two of the principal camps of Utah
t lie one a copper camp the other
principally silver lead Denver Min
