-Echo from the Mine
Nampa, Idaho, February 8, 1903.
Hon. J. P. HOLM,
Perth Amboy, N. J.
Dear Sir:
Yours of the fourth iast. together with oheob or draft on
Perth Amboy Trust Company, No. 62, came to hand yesterday. Glad to hoar from
and to thank your for the remittance. This $200 which you send will lielp us swell
the amouut in the treasury.
Am pleased to be able to report that I received a letter a few days siuoe from
Mr. Smith, our general manag- r, dated at the mine on the 8th day of January la.st
passed in whioh he sends us v^ry encouraging uewc. The lode is holdiug its own in
its development, and at the face it is looking as well as we could hope; that is to
say as he states it, "fine." It still retains its width, and the ore U good. He is
timbering the mine with square sets, and is running through ore seveu feet wide.
He has not cross cut the lode yet to ascertain its width, or the richness of the ore
between the drift and the bangiug wall. He has all supplies needed, and will ex
tend the drift on the lode probably 200 feet this winter, besides making raises to'the
surface, and will have the property in good condition by spring to oommenoe stop
ping ore for the reduction works, whioh we hope to have erected by the latter part
of August. From the way the mine is opening up, I have no doubt but tha* we
have a bonanza, and if the ore continues as rich as it is now, we will have at least
$400,000 in sight by the first day of July.
Keep the stock moving as summer will soon be here, and we want to erect
reduotion works, and perform labor for the development of the mine.
Yours truly,
By C. M. Hays, Secretary and Treasurer.
Boise, Idaho, February 21, 1908.
Mr. J. P. HOLM.
Amboy, N. J.
My Dear Holm: ?
I have been at Boise looking over some matters before the Legislature, and
have not been giving much attention to our miue. In fact there is nothing much to
do during the winter months, except to wait for good weather io the spring. We
have a force of men working, and have plenty of money in the treasury to pay them
when their work is done. We are selling a little stock to put up a small plant in
the spring, and have now advanced the price to twenty-five oents per share. We
will carry out our contract with you, however, as agreed (lOo),
I told Mr. Hays to correspond with you. and if the oertifioates already sent
you were too large, to call them in and send smaller ones in their plaoe. Tour
friends who get this stock will be fortunate, and should feel grateful to you for the
opportunity you have given them. For, of course, they would have not bad the
chance had it not been for vou. So soon as we get a ten ton mill in operation, we
will be able to declare a 13 per oent. per annum dividends on the par value of the
stock, but it is probable^ that we will hold out approximately one-half of that
amount to enlarge the capacity of the mill, but even then the returns ou the invest
ment will be more thau satisfactory.
Hoping that you will be able to place the entire block at your disposal iu the
near future, I am
Sinoerely yours,
Having lived in Moscow, Ida., 5 to 6 years, I know ike State, and have been
in tbe employ of tbe president, Hon. W. J. MoConnell, for 9 months at t.he time
he was governor of the 8tate. I have full confidence in the company and stock
he represents. There are a few thousand shares left which can as yet be had at
ten (10) cents per share in blocks of 100 for $10.00, 500 for $50 00, 1.000 for $100 00;
but, as my friend states in his (personal) letter it has advanced to 25 cer'? and will
surely go to par or more this summer. Don't lose this opportunity to gut .u ou the
ground floor, buy when money is needed for developing purposes. Why not put a
few dollars, into this now, when your spare money goes a good ways, aud iu a few
years be independent ? Don't lose the opportunity.
To those who have asked me to hold some stock for them, let me say here :
If you want any you MUST get ready NOW, oryou will have to pay more ere long.
If I didn't know the country out there and the people in oharge, or if I did not
think tbe stock had merit, I would not or could not afford to invest my own money,
nor ask my friends or others to go into it.
As will be noticed from these (personal) let'ers stock has now ad vane ei to
25 cents, but all I have left will be sold for 10 cents until April 15 inst. (If not sold
ou ) I may not get any more for less than 50ceuts. As the Govornor wrote we may
get 12 per cent, when par. It means $120 dividend for $100 invested to start with
and you have $1,000 worth of stock. Here is a sure thing; we are workiug the mine
and sell this small amount of stock for development purpose only and only NOW.
For farther information call or send check or money order to

"Calumet and Hecla" has paid to first investors $1,500 for each $1 Invested, and
the stook has advanced from $1 to $840 a share. United Verde once sold for 50 cents
a share, and is now payiug nearly 8,700 p^r cent: dividends on that price. This great
mine went begging fifteen years ago for $30,000. It is now earning $1,000,000
monthly, and Senator Clark, the present owner, recently refused $100 000.000 for it,
offered by a Belgian syndicate. The "Le Roi" mine was sold entires iu 1890 for
$12.50. It now has a market valu6 of $10 000,000, and its stook has been advanced
from 2 cents ashare to $50 a share and pays 6,000 per cent, on the first cost. $100
invested in "Le Rio" a few years ago is now worth $250,000 and has paid $35,000 in
dividends, &c, &c.

One Comfort for a Bell Boy Who Had
Seen the Play of
It is declared by the manager In
charge that through the south Lewis
Morrison and his performances of
Mephisto in "Faust," with the fiery
brocken scene and its other features,
is something of a terror to the colored
population. His principal billboard ad
vertisement reads: "The Devil Is Com
ing," and this announcement, spelled
out and repeated among the cabins,
is enough to bring out all the voodoo
charms in the neighborhood, relates
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat!
At a southern hostelry recently,
where all the attaches are colored, the
actor rang for ice water, but no one
responded. He rang again and again,
with the same result. Finally, start
ing wrathfully for the office, he found
a very black and small boy huddled' in
one corner of the hall.
"Come here, I want you, I've been
looking for you for half an hour,"
roared the actor.
"Foh me, suh; oh-h Lawd, I ain't
done nothing, I seen you at de show,
suh. Please suh, don't you touch
The boy was so evidently terrified
that Morrison took pains to set him at
ease, and succeeded in drawing hiro
into a conversation, which revealed the
fact that not a colored boy in the ho?
tel would voluntarily answer the bell;
"de debble" was ringing.
"I was plumb scared myself, suh;
but dere was just one thing about dat
place you was in dat tickled me to
def, suh."
"What was that?" inquired the
"Dere wasn't a. pickininny ob any
kind down dere where you "was, suh."

were nearly all bad."

brought them in said there weren't

frbe Seats of Too Many Senators Arc
Obtained by Corrupt
It is the popiUar habit to attach
the senate of the United States with
general condemnation. This is mis
hading, says a writer in Century
An honest man, who knows the sen
ate intimately in all its workings,
the other day said of it that anj
such sweeping attack had the inex
actness of caricature, the fact being
that the senate contains a group oi
well-equipped and disinterested pub
lic men who have become "experts''
in governmental questions, and who
get through in the course of the yeai
"an immense amount of useful pub
lic business."
There is much truth in this. But
the other thing is true also, that
state after state, and some of oui
oldest states, are represented by men
?whom it ^is a loss of reputation to
associate with intimately; who got
their seats by "corrupt practices" oi
one kind or another; and whose
presence in the senate is an adver
tisement, of the low tone of the state!
"machines" and legislatures, through
whose corrupt management, or vir
tual purchase, they obtained theii ]
"honorable" seats. And a low-toned
Benator or representative means, as
a rule, a low class of federal appoint
ments in the states or districts thus
represented ; for it is a part oi the
miserable situation that every means
is taken to deceive the appointing
powers as to the real character oi
those recommended by corruptionists
to office.
