City Ticket Office, 2514 Washington Ave nn "THE BEST PLfCE TO BE POOR." Some weeks ago we asked under this title if a city-bred man with a capital of $1hm or less could suc ceed on a farm. That the question Is oae of much popular interest Is in dicated by the number of letters we have received In reply, some of which we have printed. While the replies arc interesting, they do not make a sufficiently definite answer to the question They tell of the cheap lands and the general advantages of manv tactions of the country, and of the nee for more and better agrieul ture. One writer says that profes sional men. clerk6 and those untrain ed in farming make the best kind of farmers after they get started An other writer says that in his section $1000 "will go along trays." Is "a long ways" far enough so he can no the rest ot the wa alone'' We think It would be a great service if some one of our readers could describe with careful devotion to details just how It can be done Remember, the man with the .vIOOO la a city -bread man, unacquainted by experience with form life. Take him from any city ycu please and locate him on a farm in any section you please with a rea sonable assurance of a continuing sound roof over his head, and food and clothes for himself and his fam ily'. The best farmers In the United States started with less than $1000 In most cases with less than $10 They were the Irish and (krman im migrants who were straight from the -hip to work as hired men on farms Out of the $26 or $10 a month they got in addition to their board they saved enough to buy a few acres of land. Is the city man of the present generation too weak in fiber, too in firm of purpose, too lacking In en durance and initiative for this process?

This was the first definite indication of the attorney general's attitude towards nn investigation now belug conducted to determine whether an "oil trust" still exists. His objections to the decree, like those ho has expressed against the tobacco trust decree, are based on the grounds that a real dissolution of a trust cannot be accomplished by a distribution of the stock pro rata among the same shareholders. From Charles 13. Morrison adn Oli ver E Pagan, his speclnl assistants, the attorney general has heard the re sults of their investigation of the oil situation In taking further action un der the Sherman law. Should he reach the conclusion that a trust still exists it is pointed out that three plans of action arc open , to the at torney general: A civil suit for the dissolution of any new combination; indictment of Individuals or contempt of court pro ceedings. If action Is taken, it is believed, it will be more likely of a criminal nature. IT PUZZLED HIM. N'ewedd Did you spend so much money as this before I married you?

In the field of copper mining, has pre pared some very valuable statistics bearing on the cost of producing cop per In the ri it important districts in the United States. He says- "It is Interesting to compare the results obtained In th copper min ing district of Michigan with those of other parts of the country, and for convenience the various groups of mines may be classified as follows: The Michigan group, consisting of the copper mines h the upper penin sula of Michigan; the Montana group, consisting of the copper mines In and about Butte, the porphyry group, con sisting of the porphyry mines of Utah. Nevada and Arizona, and the south western sulphide group, consisting of the sulphide mines of Arizona and Mexico. 'The most recent statistics avail able are those for the year 1911. and oven thoy are not unite complete, but the fipures I will quote cover a I product of approximately one billion pounds of copper for the four groups mentioned, out of a total of about one billion four million pounds pro duced and imported Into the United States for that year. Comparing the yield per ton of rock oro treated we find that the Michigan group gives an average of twenty and one-quarter pounds per ton; the Montana group sixty-one and tnree-quarter pounds; the porphyry group about twenty-two pounds, and the south western sulphides seventy-four and one-half pounds "It would be extremely difficult to make a comparison of ihe amount of work expended In mining and mill ing the average ton of rock or oro In each of those groups, but It would teem that on account ot" the great depth and the narrowness of the lodes the Michigan district would afford the most difficult mining: Montana would undoubtedly come next, with the southwestern sulphides third, and the poryhyry mines fast or the easiest to mine by reason of their large sur face deposits permitting In most in stances the use of steam shovels, and the shallowness and extent of those deposits that are worked by under ground methods. t "During the year U'll the total av erage cost per ton treated In each of these groups was as follows Mich igan group. $1.S5; Montana group. i'i:i2, southwestern sulphide roup. JS. It should be borne in mind, how ever, that in thn Montana porphyry and southwestern sulphide groups quite large values in precious met-I 1 WIFE OF BRITAIN'S NKW AMBASSADOR I IS ON HER WAY TO THE UNITED STATES - Lady Spr inn-Rlce, Lady Sprlng-Rlce, wife of the new British ambassador to the United States, is on her way to this country and will arrive within a few days. She is a very charming hostess and no doubt will become a leader h" foreign diplomatic let when she goes to Wafhington this fall to live. 5he will spend the summer at Dublin, N. EL ' :iIh are recovered, which values are! accredited to the cost of producing, a pound of copper; whereas the value j of precious metals recovered from mines In the Michigan group Is al most negligible. In the Montana roup, for Instance, the precious met-1 als for tho year 1911 amounted to I :i . 26 cents per pound of copper pro-1 ducod; In the porphyry group the preclbus metal value was 2 18 cental P r pound of copper produced, and in the southwestern sulphide group 1.17 cents. Applying these credits we have the following comparison of tho net cost , of producing a pound of copper by croups, Michigan, 9.19 cents: Mon tana, 9 44 cents; porphyry, 7.98 cents; iuithvestern sulphide. 9 03 conts. "From this It can be seen th.t if ii wi re not for the precious metal J values In the other groups, the Mlch- .m group would be the lowest cost producers; or, In other words. If the Comparison Is made on the basis of copper alone and no credit Is given for the precious metals recovered, the roHnlts jrottld be as follows Mich igan croup. 9.19 Cents; Montana group i 19 7n cents, porphyry group. 10 16 southwestern sulphide group. 10 .25 1 cents. The average net cost of pro ducing this pound of copper is 8 96 enl Mlehlgnn. Montana and tho southwestern sulphide averages are sllght! In excess of this figure, which Indicates that the real competition in copper production is furnished by the porphyry mines. It has been argued that the costs, published by some of the porphyry mines are not wholly correct inas much as certain charges, such as "stripping account,' etc., have been deferred and that the published costs are lower than they should be It is not to be presumed, however, that i the Intelligent men In charge of these properties are either fooling them solves or attcmptlnc to fool the pub lic, and for the purposes of this dis cussion at least their figureB should' be given duo consideration " oo TARIFF BILL I MUST STAND Leaders Declare That Measure Will Pass the Acid Test With Free Sugar, Wool, Lumber and Agricultural Prod ucts as President Ad vocates Washington, June 5 President Wilson's position In support of free wool and free sugar seems to grow stronger as the day of tho senate; caucus draws nearer The tariff bill will be put to the acid test there and party leaders now feel that the pres ident's st:md will be supported almost unanimously by the party.
