Col onel Roosevelt, who had been in vited to be present, found it im possible to come. The Negroes regard this event of training camp as the greatest in the life of the race since the Eman cipation Proclamation, and as such the people of Des Moines were glad to give recognition. I suggested the community sing and secured the consent of the military authorities while a local organization known as The White Sparrows led by Dean Cowper, carried out the program.

WHAT SOME FOLKS BELIEVE Report on Condition of the Field At tacks Valid ty of the Rev. Dr. Boyd’: Claim to C wnership of Publishing Board—There Is Only One Nationa Baptist Convention. Chicago.—Tbe enlistment coinmittei or tbe National Baptist Convention oi America, the I »r. L. K. William? of this city, cnairmau, issues the foi lowing statement as to its findings ol the condition <>/ the field: “The committee can in nil truth state that its observations confirm the cur rent belief that a majority of the peo pie in the United States are with th< National Baptist convention. Let none hesitate to believe this, for it is abso lutely true.” The committee lias found that the people who are with the Boyd conven tion. many of them, are good meaning Baptists, though misled and mlsin formed. Many believe that Dr. Boyd Is the father and sole patron of the publishing idea, that he began and crystallized with his own brain und money the enterprise and that the Na tional Baptist convention for these rea sons Is cruel and heartless in its ef forts to control ttffe National Baptist publishing board. They believe that since he began the project with hb own menus he is the most sorely per scented man In nil tbe world. “Tlic committee has shown such per sons flint the convention began and partly crystallized the publishing idea und enterprise before it knew Dr Boyd. And ns tills has been shown good i»oople who huTe been misled and misguided on this point have shown a disposition to stand for denomination al or conventional management or own ership against board or individual management and ownership.

This dump having assay tests made on all sides gives we honestly believe that if you buy shares of stock in this Company now, a flattering future. You Will Never Regret it.” _ Assays from this old dump have varied from 20 to 173 ounces of silver per ton with sufficient lead to pay the -'ost of transportation and smelting; and this is not surprising, as the cost of smelting and shipping ore in the early days of The Snowdrift Mining Co. operations cost $90.00 per ton, making ore worth less than $lOO per ton valueless, while this same ore can now be loaded, shipped to Denver and smelted for less than $6.00 per ton. While this condition was unfortunate for the early operators, the rich ore dumps left by reason of the crude methods employed by the pioneer miners, means sure profit without risk for the investors and mining operators of today. Statement of Daniel Peters, superintendent of Snowdnrt mine, March 15th, 18S0, to Gen. E. M. McCook of New York: “At the time 1 worked the mine. I never saved ore that paid anything less than $lOO.OO per ton. my orders being to throw anything on the dump pile which ran under that amount. I have been in Colorado ten years and consider this one of the best in the state. The title of this mine is the oldest in the district.” General McCook was President of Snowdrift Company and ex-Governor of Colorado. DON’T DELAY—DELAY MEANS JAMES M.
