Hundreds of prospectors are hunt
ing for silver under the snow In
Northern Ontario according to Chi
cago mining engineers who have Just
brought back the first news of the
new silver region which was discov
ered last fall about eighty miles
northwest of Cobalt The movement
of mining material and prospectors
during the winter Into the country and
the certainty of a great rush In the
spring has already led to the opening
of two unique sleigh roads through the
forest one from tho cast where the
Ontario Government Hallway runs
through Cobalt to the new Transcon
tinental Railway two hundred miles
farther north and another which is
just ready for opening from the pres
ent terminus of tho Canadian North
ern Railway at Sellwood whero are
the great Moose Mountain iron mines
controlled by tho company of which
John W Gates of New York Is presi
dent The new camp Is called Gow
ganda The first find of silver was
made It seems by a prospector nam
ed McLaughlin who casually kicked
some moss from the root of a tree and
discovered a silverbearing vein Many
of the rich veins have since been un
covered r one of thorn for 1200 feet
They are very similar to those which
produced the extraordinary wealth ol
Cobalt As Gowganda was seventy
miles from the nearest railroad it
was impossible to get supplies build
Ing material or machinery in before

been cut have only just rendered it

That George Gould Is no longer a
big factor in the railroad world to be
compared with Harriman or Hill Is
admitted by authorities on railroad
affairs It is said that Goulds fall
uie was brought about by his loose
habits for ho indulged In wine women
and song and no one however talent
ed by nature can so abuse his op
portunities and retain a leadership
among men rho Denver News says
Whether George Gould Is actually
retiring from railroad life or not mat
ters little Tae important tact is that
he has ceased to be a large factor in
that life His railroad interests have
proved too big for him Without doubt
he will retain his Immense personal
fortune He may oven retain a large
share of stock la the roads now known
by his name But his chance to be
come one of the railroad kings ot
the Western hemisphere la gone for
Thus or nearly thus ondeth another
attempt to establish a hereditary rail
road empire In thin country Jay
Gould left railroad properties of im
mense value lie brought to his life
work a brain second to none In the
financial world of America but he had
no single instinct of a builder Ho
was a manipulator a wrecker not a
constructor His son George we fully
believe wished to manage in Just and
profitable fashion tho principality be
queathor by his soldloioffortune sire
But George Gould brought little to
the task save good Intentions He
lacks the bigness the daring the
Insight the quick decision and en
cyclopedic knowledge that makes the
groat modern railroader Ho had In
his service some of tho best railroad
lieutenants m this country but fc
gave them no power Everything
about his systems was tied with miles
of red tape every project had to bo
referred and rerelerred and cross
indexed and bandied back and forth
till the original life and vitality OL it
wore gone
When Gould started his Western
Pacific Harrnnan predicted failure
not for the road but for Gould and
the developments slnco the panic tonrt
to provo Harrlmans judgment to have
boon good
Tho indications are James J Hill
has succeeded to the control of the
Gould road in tho wost and the days
of the rule of the Gould family In 1
that territory covered by tho Rio
Grande system Is at an end Hill is
by far a more masterful man In that

You havo used the word demon
strate but did It ever occur to you
how much tho word means When
Abraham Lincoln was gaining his
education by tho BOW > process of read
ing and thinking for nlmsolf ho came
to tho word demonstrate to com
prehend which we havo his own state
ment he worked until ho had master
ed six books in Euclid
We are told by his biographer that
It was no brilliant student who devot
ed himself to acquiring tho rudiments
of education but a patient painstak
ing and somewhat plodding boy for
Lincolns mind matured very slowly
Indeed he did not show any signs ol
promise until he was about 18 and
even In the prime of his life his In
tellectual processes were far rom
quick His mind he remarked wag
like a piece of steel very hard to
scratch but almost Impossible to free
of tiny mark once made upon It Those
who have had the benefit of good In
struction and understand proper meth
ods of study can scarcely conceive the
difficulties under which such a boy
would labor In acquiring knowledge
without assistance A severer discip
line can hardly be Imagined
Ills slowness and lack of guidance
had however tho advantage of mak
ing Lincoln thorough Ho never was
sure that he know anything unless ho
understood It perfectly
There never was a man more famil
iar with the pains and woes of men
tal drudgery than Lincoln and It re
quired real courage to keep him at his
task for he was not fond of study for
Its own sake Neither was he natural
ly thorough or methodical On the
contrary he was Inclined to disorderly
habits and slipshod methods some of
which ho foyer outgrow and at first
he attempted to clip corners and find
short cuts to learning quite as often
and as hopefully as other boys havo
done Indeed It was only through
repeated failure that he learned that
It was Impossible for him to acquire
anything except at the price of good
hard work Even when he began to
study law he had a fleeting hope that
his knack of speechmaking would re
hero him from the drudgery of the
profession only to confess before
many years had passed that any one
who rolled on such an exemption was
a failure In advance
Americans are said to admire smart
ness sharpness and showy traits of
mind but these qualities wore all con
spicuously lacking in Lincoln Ho
could upon occasion make a bright re
ply or a neat retort but us a rule ho
required time and careful preparation
to appear at advantage and ho was
often painfully slow in making up his
mind Perfectly aware of these limi
tations he concentrated all his efforts
upon discovering the real issue or
point In any subject and mastering
that to the exclusion of details and of
this training came one of the most
pitiless analyzers of facts ono of the
soundest logicians and one of the
keenest trailers of truth that tho world
has ever known This was not how
ever solely or even largely the result
of his application to books Ho had
neither the tastes nor the opportuni
ties of a book worm He preferred the
company of his fellowmen and from
them he learned far more than he did
from any printed page He was not
however what Is generally known as
a student of human nature Probably
it never occurred to him to dissect and
examine critically tho minds and char
acters of his acquaintances and
friends Nevertheless ho was a close
and accurate observer and by mixing
freely with all sorts and conditions of
men he acquired a remarkable knowl
edge of humanity In the discussions
at tho country store at Salem and at
other local forums he discovered that
the man of moderate attainments
who was truthful and sincere often
had his mental superiors at a decided
disadvantage and early in his career
he schooled himself against exaggera
tion and overstatement of every kind
To present facts clearly concisely
and effectively without taking undue
advantage of them Is no mean accom
plishment It requires not only abil
ity and courage but tact and character
and In Lincolns hand It became both
a shield of defense and a weapon of
attack He neither deceived himself
nor allowed others to deceive him and
he honestly and fairly looked on all
sides of every question before making
up his mind Ths not only rendered
him sure of his own ground and toler
ant of the opinions of others but gave
him a knowledge of his adversarys
resources which was Invaluable In time
of need As a result we have his own
statement that In all his experience
as a lawyer he was never once sur
prised by tho strength of an oppo
nents case and frequently found it
much weaker than he feared In like
mariner during the contest over slav
ery he so thoroughly mastered the ar
guments of those who differed from
him that he was often able to turn
them to his own advantage forcing
hIs great rival Douglas to confess that
ho had given him more trouble than all
tho Abolitionists together

did remind me of the former Inter
view and repeated the pledge made at
that time that he was In favor of lo
cal option that he believed It to be
based on the principle of sound gov
ernment and popular rights He said
prohibition was an Is gue that had
arisen since election and that as yet
he did not see his way clear to ac
cept ft favorably that he was In no
way pledged to it as he was to local
I feel that It is due Senator Kuch
leis that his attitude should not be
misconstrued I know that the com
mittee will agree with me as to this
In our talk In Salt Lake I then ex
plained that I had changed my posi
tion In favor of prohibition because
there had arisen a strong demand In
Its favor that local option was simply
a longer way round though faster at
times that the passage of the prohi
bition law at this time would forestall
the bitterness that Is bound to como
in a prolonged fight on the temper

force to this movement to Insure the
enforcement of the law If passed and
