When It came to the selection of a name for the newly-found district quite u frlcndlv rivalry arose. A goodly number of those present wanted It called Galenn, others thought Agentn n more appro priate name, while Ophtr wits suggested ns being a better one. The house seemed to be pretty well divided on the subject, so little slips of paper were pained around and the matter settled by ballot. Ophlr won und the ramp has borne that title ever since. Many. In fact nearly all, of the men who took part In that memorable meeting have laid down their toola nnd passed over the Great Divide. Iluckskln Clark and A. W. Moore were ntr.ong the latest to close life's chapter FIRST WHITE MAN. Mr Herman says ho Is positive that the latter waa the first white man who settled In Ophlr canyon, If not tho flrrt one who entered It. Moore hnd a ranch there und the present townsltn covered a part of It. When the tnwnslte was laid out Mr. Herman, who wns then Hure)or of Tooele county, was em ployed to da the surveying. Moore coined money out of the sale of lots, but nearlv nil the wealth acquired In this manner was lost In mining ven tures made afterward, ORIGINAL MINERS. While the soldiers under the com mand of Gen, Connor may have done the tlret prospecting In the CO's, Mr Herman snya the first really active mi ning commenced there In 1S70, und that the two men who discovered the pres ent Ophlr-HIII mine John W. Cooley and James Mcllrlde undertook to mar ket the first ore. They mnde no money of consequence, for the reason that they experienced dlttlculty In finding n market. Home of the oro wits shipped to the old Wnttermun smelter, seven teen miles south of the Great Salt lake, but owing to their composition the fur nace would freese quickly: hence, tho product of the mine was not wanted. Cooley and Mnllrlde sold out their In terests for a few hundred dollars. WALKER llltOH. The Walker Rrothors entered Ophlr canyon, Mr. Herman sals, about 1871. and soon afterward built a mill and op erated It for same time on ores ob tained from Lion hill, on the east slds of the canyon, Marcus Daly managed the Walker properties. When the mill was abundoned the machinery waa shipped to Ilutte nnd used at the Alice mine. The first experienced miners who en tered the Dry canon section of the dis trict, according to Mr. Herman, went there In the year Ut). The mountains In that portion of the ramp were heav ily covered with timber, nnd John Moore, the leader of the pioneer party, applied to Mr. Herman to survey some timber claims for them. Mr. Herman oannot recall the names of nil the men who comprised the little delegation, but a man by the name of John Dyer was the cook, Atonic about 1871 or 1173 the town of Ophlr contained several thousand o pie, and Mr Herman Is ready to con firm all that has been said elsewhere relative to tho morul condition of the camp In the early days, 1'IONEER HOTEL. John Duke was the pioneer hotel keeper and kept a place In a log cabin bulldlmr. on the stle of th nreaent O'Urlen house. The hotel waa known as the Duke house, and the owner did K very t riving business. Mr. Herman stopped ( the place a number of times and, on one occasion while he was en gaged In surveying the townslte, put up there. Every bed In the house waa taken, nnd In order to accommodate as many guests aa possible, three h.t sons were obliged to deep In the same hunk. On one particular night Mr Herman turned lu with two bedinates whom he did not know and had never seen before. Thero were a numb-r of bede tn the same room, und all of them of nurse, were filled. While Mr. Her man ami hit slrmigar companions wore ti) lng to slumber. mrnl mem were busily engaged In n lively gnniq of mkur. Upon the table whero they were playing was piled n considerable amount of money, and nt times during the progress of the game n great deal of loud talking wns Indulged In. A number of times hostilities were threatened In the way of gun-plays; all the players were armed with six shooters, as waa nearly everyone else In the camp at that time. Neither Mr. Herman nor his companions slept very soundly; In fact, after many attempts to do so the former got up, dressed himself nnd went down to the house occupied by A W. Moore, who, upon being nwnkened, let him In, where he put In the balance of the night undis turbed DECLINE AND REVIVAL. The cnmp began to decline nlong about 1876, two enrs later It was practically dead, and It remained In that condition until a few )ears ago, when the ramp took on new life, occa sioned by the operations of Senator Vf. A. Clark. The decline of the cnmp came with the exhausting of the rich surface de poslti and the Inability to treat the baser ores to a profit with tho crude methodn In tKiie at that time Col. I J, A. Wall and thd late Allan O. Campbell became the owners of the Ophlr-HIll property, nnd It wns by them that tho deal for the sale of the mine to Senator Chirk was effected. The Montana Senator paid $75,000 for the mine. Mr. Herman settled In Tooele county In the fall of 1816. He filled the posi tion of I'robate Judge there for n period of six years, und for fifteen ears wns County Surveyor The Mono mine, In Dry ran) on, wns located and operated for yeara by Matt Glsborn, who lately disposed of It to nn Eastern (ondlcnte.

Tne filters consist of a series of parallel plates 4 Inches apart. I'-nch plate Is 10 feet long nnd feet high nnd Is slmplv a light framework with canvas on both sides. A suction pipe passes through the top at the center down tn within a half Inch of the bottom, while two blow ing pipes also enter at the top, each one half way between the center ends und extend bnrely through the top. Eighteen of thene parallel platra at tlrmiy at tached to channel Iron crossing their tops, thus forming one 'basket' of niters, that Is, one unit We thus have In one machine a total niterlng surface of :SS0 square fret. On top of these plates nnd connected to their suction pipes by a 3 Inch cross header pipe, rests a Eli-Inch and 8-Inch by 7-Inch vacuum pump. The whole basket hanga by eight wire cables from an electric crane with ralsea and lowers the basket and carries It from one compartment of the tank to an other. This tank has three compart ments, containing slimes, weak cyanide solution, and wash water. Just bevond the wash-water compartment Is the dis charge point, simply an open square un der which the tailings cars stand to re ceive their load. "In operation the filter basket Is low ered In the slimes compartment and the vacuum pump Is started. The slimes are agitated to prevent settling. After the suction has proceeded from one to tvvo hours. nrlng with the character of the slimes and with the thickness of the emulsion, there Is n coating of slimes on all parta of the illterlng surface of from three-fourths to one Inch In thickness, representing from 8 to 12 tons of slimes, dry weight. The motor on the crane Is then started and the basket with Ita load la lifted out of the slimes compart ment, this operation requiring four sec onds The crime Is then moved alone Its track until over the weak r)anlde compartment nnd the basket Is lowered. Twenty minutes In this tank nnd ten minutes In the wnsh-water tank Is sutll clcnt for a complete displacement of the valuable solutions. During ull this time the pump Is In operation nnd the vacuum produced prevents the enkes from dropping off during the trans ferring Having arrived at the dis charge point the vacuum pump Is stopped nnd a blast of air turned Into a pipe connecting with the blowing pipes of each plate The air passing through the cloth from within the plates dis lodges the slime cakes nnd they drop nt once In the enrs below, so that from 9 to 1? tons are discharged and loaded In n lute. Each filter handles about 75 ' s per day, and one man operates the ruur niters, so the cost of labor Is atiout cents u ton. The wear on the cloth Is almost nothing, cloths In use six months In the experimental plant showing nn deterioration. The power required Is very small, n "H-horse imvver motor does the raising of the basket and la In operation only 4 minutes during the ejele of tvvo hours. The vacuum pumps are run by air and hold n vacuum of from 18 to 20 degrees of mercury The discharge solution la as clear as spring water. "The advantage of this sytrm arc obvious; nrst, n saving of from 40 to SO rents per tcth In labor; second, a saving of ft like amount In extraction, third, a saving of over CO per rent In the cost of Installation. The saving In extraction It due to the fuel that, while the niter la In the tllinea tank and the suction In operation nn equalising net Ion la taking place, rendering ull parts of the rake of equal resistance to the flow of solution and wash-water, su that when placed In the washing tanks n )erfect displace ment of solution Is accomplished. For example, we might consider that It would be possible for one spot on the 2S00 square feet of slime cake to have more of the courser slimes, or One sands, than the other parts; then there would be lest resistance to the flow at this point: therefore, the How would be ac celerated here, the slimes would be brought up and would cover this point more rapidly than the other purls until, by this Increased coating, the resistance to the flow of solution and wash-water, so other points. This equalising Inrtu ence Is. tn fact, hi continuously In oper ation that at no tntant Is there any less resistance to the How at One joint than at all other o!nta. Thus, when lifted out from the slimes compartment, the entire basket of niters Is In perfect condition for washing and, In practice, all tho soluble gold Is extracted (Continued Ntit Week.)

The artistic firmament of Salt Lake City has been, of late, much disturbed by pyrotechnic eruptions of the artistic temperament on account of the failure to award n prize at a former exhibition, the Judges claiming that of the pictures entered none waa possessed of sufficient merit to win the awatd. And this brings to mind the fact that there has always been dissatisfaction among those who have failed to win In Mmllar exhibitions, nnd nlways will be. In greater de gree than elsewhere, until some accept able standard of criticism Is attained and established It Is undeniable that not only In this State, especially, but throughout the country, the dearth of rational criticism Is a serious drawback to the progress of art among us. While our students are nndmllatlng nil thnt It to be learned In the foremost European schools, nnd discovering, io me of them, very remarkable talents, our art criticism Is not progressing at a corresponding rate.

In which they perceive something that reminds them of Titian or fllorglone, while a strong; and life-like work, ani mated by modern Ideas and feelings, runt great risk of being passed by or perhaps condemned as n merely techni cal affair, devoid of spiritual signifi cance. This attitude Is sometimes supported by arguments ns absurd as one would expect them to be. but none the less mischievous, They amount to saying that In art technique Is of no account It Is the feeling that escapes analysis, the grace that cannot be measured, the genius that transcends the rulerv that distinguish the work or art from the production of mechanic skill, (liven these great qualities, we can forego technical excellencies. And when the critic Instinctively recognizes their pres ence, all he has to do Is to sound the loud timbrel nnd mnke as much noise of prnlse nnd exultntlon ns poralbl When, on the contrnry, he Is unable to perceive anything of the kind In the Picture under consideration, he Is never to admit that the fault may be In him, In his Imperfect understanding of the language that the painter must use He Is nt liberty to damn the work offhand as a product of soulless mechanism. It may be safely arcertcd that the more Inseparably the meaning of a pic ture Is bound up In the technique, the more successful the picture, nnd, In so far. the greater. The criticism that lg norea this principle Is not sound criti cism, but writers or Judges who are not specialists, when they turn to crltlclrlnr: works of nrt, nre very apt to Ignore It. Art In Utnh Is developing In most encouraging degree. It should not be ntunted or discouraged by Incompetent criticism. Our Dalllns, Lambournes. Culmers.

Their work und tmigrers cannot be nrfected Injuriously by the carping of any critics the Stnte nt present af fords, but to younger nrtlsts nnd nsplrlng students the matter of rational and capable criticism Is ever) thing. This Is a subject of more Importance than many suppose. Art Is a luxury In one sense, but In Its broader sense It Is not a luxury nt all; It Is a necessity Shoes for Men HV Shoe Binvr by W Bradley & mctcalf Company HILWAUKK, - WIS. rORBAIJIBV William Btllfngs, Qoldsn Oate Cash Btort. rFRED.

Ages before . history began, men who could scarcely JJ express the simplest Ideas In words carved rude pictures of their mvnge life upon their primitive weapons and orna- ments. Our nrt It only ths development rf that which began In the nge of stone what education hna made out of . the Instinct of our brutal progenitors. m Art which comes from the people, be- r longs to the people, and Is a luxury only as ifl In the tense that It can be done without, "" j and man continue to exist. Hut It Is il an Influence which Illuminates nnd beautifies our lives and renders them I better worth living, and, ns Mich, Is ns essential to us ns the books which feed our minds and which no one dreams of K regarding as luxuries. Hence, we believe the Stnte should do everything It can for the encouragement and development H of nrt In our midst, and a school for the study of art. Its history and politico- social relations, ns well ns Its practice, JH would be productive In time, not only of .! nrtlsts, but of a higher standard of ra- al tlonnl art criticism which Is so necca- SW sary to the perfection of nrt and tho 'J ev olutlon of genius.
