GOVERNMENT NEEDS METAL—
APPLY TO LOCAL EXPLO
In order to buy, sell or use platinum,
iridium or palladium it is now neees
nary to make application to the local
explosive agent for a license, accord
itig to notice recently issued by Edgar
S. Elder, explosive agent for the state
of Idaho, whose headquarters are at
St. Maries.
no authority to issue the license, but
will simply take the application and
forward it to the war industries board
with his recommendation. Tills order
is based on the fact that these are
war minerals and the necessity of
regulating the use and sale of them
in order that the government may se
cure a sufficient quantity for war use.
Production and Value.
In his report to the bureau of mines,
Hennen Jennings, chairman of the
platinum regulation committee, has
this to say of the metals:
"For the year 1913 the world's pro
duction of crude platinum has been
given at about 313,000 ounces troy,
while for 1917 only 83,000 ounces; thus
at present there is obtained from all
the mines only 26V4 per cent of the
pre-war output. In 1913 Russia was
credited with 95 per cent of the total
and In 1917 only 60 per cent.
"Iridium Is associated with platinum
and the supply of this metal is for the
most part obtained from the platinum
deposits of Russia. Platinum was dis
covered In Columbia, South America,
in 1735. In 1810 It commanded only
from 30 to 40 cents an ounce. It was
found in Russia in 1819. In 1828 it
had a value of about $7 an ounce. The
fluctuation in values of platinum and
iridium from 1901 to 1914 Is most no
ticeable, the price per troy ounce of
platinum varying from $14 to $36.
Since 1914 platinum and its allied met
als have varied In price as follows:
F'or 1914, platinum $45, Iridium $65,
and palladium $44; 1915, platinum $55,
Iridium $83, and palladium $67; 1917,
platinum $103, Iridium $150, and pal
ladium $110; 1918, platinum $105, Iri
dium $175, and palladium $135, the
government fixed prices.
"Next to Russia, Columbia pro
duces the largest amount of platinum
and presents the most promise of
larger future outputs under stimulus
of higher prices. Platinum in this
country is found in many places but
in small quantity, being less than 1
per cent of the whole world's pro
duction, but with the present high
rate and price its discovery and pro
duction In this country may be some
what increased.

Compared With Gold.
"As an ornament, the lustre and col
or of platinum is inferior to gold, but
more than its equal in indestructibil
ity. It is superior to gold in its infusi
bility and more useful for industrial
purposes. Its electrical usefulness is
also far greater than gold. It Is a mis
fortune, therefore, that with only a
limited and waning supply of platin
um found In the placer deposits, it
has ever become fashionable as an or
nament, and Its use as such Should be
discouraged in all reasonable ways.
These regulations and requisition or
ders submitted, prevent further man
ufacture of platinum for all ornament
al and non-essential purposes during
the duration of the war.

MINING AND THE TARIFF.
Piotection Needed to Encourage Min
eral Production.
(Denver Mining Record)
Colorado and the west have learned
several Important facts as a result of
the world war. Lessened shipping fa
cilities and the resultant decrease in
imports of necessary war minerals
| lttve called the attention of the nation
to the undeveloped condition of tho
great deposits of these minerals in the
Rocky mountain country. It has also
called the attention of the mining fra
ternity to the fact that the so-called
protective
tariff has protected the
easern manufacturer but has not pro
tected the producer of tungsten, man
ganese, molybdenum and metals of
this class used particularly in the
steel plants of the east. What con
gress has failed to do for the western
mining man is now being accomplish
ed by the war. The import of these
necessary metals has been cut off
more completely by the war than
could he accomplished by a tariff on
these imports, and as a result the
mine operators of the west supply
the shortage.
The president has signed the $50,
000,000 appropriation known as the
war minerals bill to stimulate the pro
duction of these and a score of other
minerals. Now if congress will place
an import tariff duty on the minerals
named, so that the western miner will
be protected against the cheap labor
of the Latin-American countries that
have been exporting these minerals
into the United States, the west will
be able to place the production of
these minerals on a permanent basis
and the nation will be able to get its
supplies at home.
The United States needs the equiv
alent of 800,000 tons of manganese ore
containing 50 per cent manganese, for
use during the present year. Much
of this great volume of ore has been
Imported in the past years from Bra
zil. Notwithstanding the fact that
there are immense deposits of man
ganese ore in the Rocky mountain
country, there was mined in the en
tire United States In 1917 only 114,
216 tons of this valuable mineral of
40 per cent content. If the steel In
terests will stand back and allow the
United States to put a fair tariff on
importations of manganese and other
ores necessary to perfect their output,
the west will continue the greatly in
creased output of these
which will result from the war miner
als bill.

NO TIME FOR SHOT GUN.
An Incident of Early Day Poker Game
on the Comstock.
On one occasion a "sport" of hercu
lean frame, and wearing a huge black
beard that gave him a most ferocious
appearance, cheated a miner out of
$400 or $500 in a game of draw poker,
reminisced Dan de Quille in "The Big
Bonanza." The miner saw the cheat
and left the place wearing an ugly
look. Some of those present who
knew him told the big sport that he
had better leave, as his man had gone
off to "heel himself," and there would
soon be trouble. "Why, gentlemen,"
said he, "you don't know me—you
don't know who I am! I am the Wild
Boar of Tehama! The click of a six
shooter is music to my ear, and a
bowie knife is my looking glass—."
Here he happened to look toward the
door, and saw the miner entering with
a shot gun, and concluded "—but a
shot gun lets me out," and he went
through the window behind him head
first.—Engineering and Mining Jour
