Brighterskies never smiled on Ilutte^thun those which attended yesterday's
(^reniony of laying the corner stone of^th^ School of Mines. The sightly hill^southeast of the city h is . as ly m the^afternoon blackened with interested^spectators, muny of whom walked^while some drove over In carriages. It^was warm and sunny and Um trust,km^could lot have selected a more perfect^lay for the lercinony had they llxed^the ceremony for June.
Kromthe hill whege the foundations^of the School of Mines have liven laid^every pan of Uutte can he se.-n. The^site Is a slight eminence rising to the^south of the I,Ik Lull.-, and when the^foundation was developed Into the^stately building designed by the archi^^tect, the School of Mines will lie the^most conspicuous object In the vicinity^^f Ilutte, and will be prominent for^miles around.
IImi.bedsof Butte's best citizens^gathered yesterday to witness the sim^^ple ceremony of thiinr stone lay.
mg.The trustees bail announced that^the ceiemony would be under the^auspices of the public,^ nnd it being a^MaM institution it was litljfig that the^o.i'.tiinny should be superintend.. 1 by^the state's governor. Mr. Kicknrds.^who ib In n I a very tloaMMt address^in his last public appcai ance us gov^^ernor of the stab .
Thehundreds of people who dotted^'he hill were greatly p|. isod with the^progress already tnao ^ and many^winds of con:;i-;itulati^ii were heard^that the building, which has been^wished for so many years, is at lust^well under way. Then is a substan^^tial appearame al^^Ut Ike foundation^promising that the building will be lm-^posing ami substantial, and that the

aregiving the people of the slate a^building which will be u credit to the^builders and a source of pride to the^state. Kor the winter the foundations^have been carefully boarded over so^thai they may be well protected from^any stress of weather. Dozens of Hags^graced the walls as the people gather^^ed yesterday afternoon.
K.K. Sargeant, president of the board^of trusties. thanked the audience for^the Interest displayed by their pres^^ence, and congratulated them on the^fact that at last tli'dr wishes had de.^veloped Into something of a. substan^^tial nature. Mr. Sargeant recited the^history of the efforts to obtain a school^.if mines for Ilutte. There had been as^^signed Icn.iKliI acres of public land to be^^elected by the land ooromlMioMl. the
procIs of the sale of which w.re to

thought,was execediaaiy fort aaats in
Ussslscttoa of n site. That seemed for^a time as far as they roaid go. The^trust. ^-s were let linking in ^.^^!. but^they were confronted witli an empty^treasury. it was provided that the^public lands sit apart for the school^could not be sold for b-ss than M'l per^acre and not any of it bus yet be. n sold^and no demand exist* for it at that^price. Furthermore, no provision had^boon made lo equip the school. In MM,^however, a school of mines commission^was appointed consisting of the trus^^tees, who were empowered In spend^IliMi.OOO for a building and tll.Ht for the^equipment of the school. This ratio^was out of proportion, for those versed^in schools of the sort consider that a^much larger sum should have been set^apart for the school's equipment. I'n-^less the si hool Is endowed by some of^Montana's wealthy citizens the school^must be maintained by a general tax.^Mr. Snrgeant told of the advertising^for bids for the school, the work to lie^paid In warrants for the payment of^which there are no funds now avail^^able, but the warrants ate absolutely^good. Mr. Sargeant paid a compli^^ment to the contractors for their pa^^triotism In undertaking the work with^^out their pay being actually in sight^and for the excellent work done al^^ready toward the BCQOtloa ..f tic build^^ing.
Mr.largsaal then railed do Mm

The^basinCSS side of mining has . eased to^rest Its conclaaMB upon the air castles^if sanguine tempered prospei tors, and^the expert Is as essential as the ore in^Jelei'ininlng the values of n mine.
Ifthe School of Mines converts the^future prospector anil the fulure miner^into experts,^a revolution w ill beeffect-^^il In the Industrial life of Molilalia.^Wasted opportunities will be the ex^^ception rather than the rule, and the^mining Industry will take on more of^certainty and less of loss.

It Is Impossible to foretell^what this will mean to the slate. With^the revival of the mining Industry^must come the opportunity for every^form of commercial activity contin^^gent upon the direct prodin lion of^wealth.
