LOST PLACER. Attempts to Find It Abandoned Until Spring. The lost placer of Cayuse creek will remain lost until next spring at least. Paul Johnson, a sturdy prospector and miner of this city, who undertook to rediscover the mysterious diggings, has returned and owing to the ap proach of bad weather will not renew the attempt until next spring. Cayuse "reek is a tributary of Kelly creek, which was formerly known as the Middle Fork of the Clearwater. Upon securing all available data regarding the location of the lost mine, Mr. Johnson secured an outfit at Missoula, consisting of pack horses, tools and provisions, and started on his quest for the lost diggings, going in by way of Lolo pass. This was in August. Upon his arrival at Moose City, on Kelly creek, he heard of the passage of the new draft law and the require ment for all men within the prescrib ed age to register on September 12, and also the news of the death of his father. Under these circumstances he was compelled to abandon the search and return home, but fully resolved to return in the spring as early as wea ther conditions will permit. The story of this lost mine of Cay use creek was first published in the Miner of September 12, and like all tales of lost treasure, it attracted much Interest among adventurous spirits, and when spring comes Mr. Johnson will no doubt have numer ous competitors in the race to find the lost 'mine. Have Been Shipping and Smelting Charges. In an action for the conversion of ore, in the absence of pleading and proof as to the cost of shipping the ore or the charge for smelting the ore, an Innocent purchaser for value from persons who had taken the ore from plaintiff's claim by an unlawful tres pass thereon is not entitled to a re covery of the shipping and smelting [ charges. A location made by persons ground already covered by a valid existing location upon which annual labor has been performed is void and the attempted relocators are in the category of trespassers.—Kelvin Lum ber & Supply Co. v.

With the | | supply of non-ferrous metals to meet I requirements, especially tin plate and aluminum, zinc is now as suming greater importance In the in an enormous strain on i present , " " orW th,ln eVer before - ' peHments recen, »' have brou * ht llght that rol,ed zinc Particularly ein ! b ° dies ' iualities that fo, ' ete " 'I s Ex to stantly increasing use both at pres ent and after the war. ! ! " zinc is just coming into its own," ■ sabl & V. Peters, assistant general manager of the New Jersey hisj^lhc company, to the New York Her "Researoh laboratories have sale ald - ound 1Lat this metal embodies the essential qualities of good material 11,1 'Petal products of the non-ferrous I l ' ias ' s - The response to the govern - ment's wish for such a replacement metal has brought to light convinc ing evidence of the wide scope of zinc's usefulness. Present Uses. "Zinc oxide forms a considerable per cent of the composition in an au tomobile or truck tire, this product giving to truck tires and other high grade rubber goods resiliency and Zinc oxide also gives durability, wearing quality to paint. This ma terial, when used in paints with a corresponding mixture of white lead sulphate, which the zinc company en courages, provides toughness, lustre and color constancy to paint, quali ties that are essential in this age of conservation. "Spelter or metallic zinc, is with copper, a component in the manu facture of high grade brass. It gal vanizes telephone and telegraph wires to keep them from rusting and becoming brittle and has a large field of usefulness in other ways. Rolled zinc has demonstrated that it can be easily drawn and spun, that the high grade quality spelter is not brittle, and that it takes as high a polish as may be desired. "Among other points favoring zinc may be mentioned the fact that, after the war, America will be looked to to Supply several countries of the old world now in the throes of the great struggle. They must be rebuilt and it will require a long time before their own resources, such as reestab lishment of manufacturing plants and the procurement of materials, can be made ready to turn the wheels again. Much zinc, therefore, will be required from this side to aid in the rebuild ing program. Zinc Roofing. "In the reconstruction period zinc roofing, being non-corrosive, will be needed in large quantities. These conditions will apply to America as well as to Europe, where zinc as a roofing material, has been much used. In fact, the non-rusting prop erty of zinc is a quality already at tracting to this metal much favor able attention on the part of manu facturers. Weather strips made out of zinc have been used in all climates for years and this metal has proved very suitable for such products. "For use in building hardware zinc likewise has demonstrated its prac ticability. This applies to door knobs, door casings, .window sash and fix tures, opening an entirely new field for the consumption of the metal. Such uses promise to increase when building activities are again renewed on an extensive scale. * "Zinc is the logical material for making leaders and gutters, due to its ability to withstand outdoor wear, while in such commodities as electric fuses, this material is standard. Sul phuric acid, an important ingredient in fertilizers, is produced* from sul phur found in western zinc ores. This material will grow in importance af ter the war, due to increased crop production in various parts of tha world, A SHORT CAMPAIGN AFTER BOND DRIVE.

Democrats who are now seeking reelection have shown inefficiency in the performance of their official duties, have failed to en force the laws, have neglected or re fused to improve important highways, and have spent an enormous sum for the construction, equipment and maintenance of a county institution without consulting the taxpayers who must pay the bill, when such an In stitution could have been provided with ample accommodations for one fifth of the amount. These are some of the questions that will confront the democratic candidates in this county during the brief period that remains until the election, and with the bond drive out of the way the re publicans propose to force' the issues with an earnestness that will bring these questions to the attention of the voters in all parts of the county. It will no be a brass band campaign, nor a speech making campaign, nor a personal abuse campaign; but it will nevertheless bring the democratic record of extravagance and Ineffi ciency in this county to the attention of the voters, and that Is all that Is necessary to insure a complete change in the county administration. % ONE PARROT THAT HAD REAL CAUSE TO SWEAR. of Men employed by the Rose laike Lumber cnmiwtny in repairing the road in Fourth of July canyon one day last week were attracted by the sound, of profanity the like of which they had never heard before in a lumber camp. As there was no apparent occasion for this outburst, and in fact no one in view from whom it could come, they were in a quandary to locate the source from which it emanated. Going down the road to a muddy section, about mid way of which a pointed rock pro jected to the edge of the road way, they discovered perched up on a small tree above the rock embankment a parrot, and the language that he was turning out was of the variety that would place Private O'Rourke in the class of amateurs. How the bird got there was soon explained by the discovery of a battered cage in the muddy road from which he had escaped. He was perfectly willing to be captured and is now receiving the best of care at the big logging camp of the Rose Lake Lumber company in the ean It appears that the parrot belonged to tourists who were motoring through the canyon, and that the cage was tied on the run ning board of the car. in passing through the muddy road it was evident from the track that the car struck the projecting rock anil broke the parrot cage from its ■moorings. The occupants of the were too much' absorbed In getting out of the muck to miss the parrot, thus for the first time giving him an opportunity that fully justified the fluent use of his acquired vocabulary. | I yon. t y. 7, . * ' ' P • I •j, FRANK R.

(Continued from Page 1) covered by the company from its ores, and would be, in substance, a waste of its assets. At all times our com pany has insisted that the metal com pany fully perform its contract, and take our output as we produce it. The metal company's contentions were that under the contract it was en titled to incresaed charges or a sus pension of deliveries, due to war con ditions not anticipated by the parties when the contract was made. "The differences in views between these two companies have been so wide that only two courses were open to our directors; i.e. either some ad justment of the differences that would be advantageous to our stockholders, or litigation on account of the con tract. Output Sold for Trhee Month*. "After careful consideration, and with a view of conserving the prop erty of the company, our directors de cided, after conferences with many of our stockholders, that the only prac tical remedy was to dissolve all rela tions between the two companies, and we are pleased to report that we have been able to accomplish tills result. We have cancelled the contract with the metal company, in consideration of the delivery and surrender to us of 145,097 shares of the stock of our com pany. The metal company is to pay us at the contract rates for all ores heretofore shipped and unsettled for, including all shipments up to and in cluding September 30, 1918. In addi tion, our company lias acquired the remaining holdings of parties affili ated with the metal company, aggre gating approximately 21,500 shares. Each company has released the other from any further liability, and our company stands today absolutely di vorced from any relationship or con nection with the metal company or its affiliations. "Since said adjustment has been consummated, the output of our mines for the next three months has been sold. "As the result of the foregoing ad justment and transactions, the total amount of our issued anil outstanding stock today (other than that owned by the company itself) is 298.303 shares, instead of 464,990 shares. The officers and directors consider that the best interests of the company have been conserved, and that the stockholders are to be congratulated upon the outcome.
