' f f foe Sriffcitfttnt pwj VOLUME 23. MARION, CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KENTUCKY, MARCH 27, 1902. mrmtMrnrnmimmmmmmm, The Kentuoky Fluor Spar Co. shipped a car of thoir socond grado flnor spar up to Minoral Point, "Wis., last week, for tho purpoeo of testing the jigging procoss to remove the calcito and galona. The cleaned produot showod that this mothod will nrovo oxtromolv sat- . isfnatorv in ntilizinrr n Inrrrn nnr ... . coniage or tne intonor prouuot, as a number ono grado, bringing it to what is oallod "grinding quality." The Sraithland Courier says that tho PitUburg FluorSpar and Mining Company aro pushing work on thoir proporty noar tho Cumberland river, a short distance from Smithlnnd, It icstatod that a tramway will bo built from tho mino to tho rivor, for tho purposo of more ohoaply moving tho largo ontput of No. 1 fluor spar which the voin contains. F. M. Bernard, the managor of this company, is having moro or loss work on tho company's proporty at Qoloonda, Illinois, on tho north bank of the Ohio. Tho report of a largo vein of solid load on this property should bo takon with a grain of salt, as nature novor doos business in that way. Solid load must oorao from tho smolters, not from tho ground. Our pooplo throughout tho oountioa of Crittonden and Livingston should romoinber that a Woll filled voin of galona, carbonate or fluor spar is worth a groat deal of money, They should not bo in too groat hasto to part with thoir homos and farms oithor on royalty loasos or by diroot 0. S. Knight, of Ft Wayno and D. 0. Griffith, of Indianapolis havo within tho past fow wooks olosod oontraots for tho purohaso of several hundred aores of land, the oroam of tho minoral voius in thoso two oountios. Tho proporty obtainod by thoso gentlemon for a few thousand dollars is worth moro than fifty timos tho amount paid, and while we are pleased that foreign oapital attraotod to thia district, we prefer that our own should obtain at leaBt a fair remuneration for the proporty they part with. The shipments of zinc carbonate from the proportioa fyfabto 'V Knjght 'm Griffitli, if and tho BIuo & Nunn proporty, avoragos somo 80,000 pounds daily and constantly incroasos as greater dovolopmont is mado. A vory pleasant interview was had with Mr. F. Bt Trout, manag ing director of Tho National Load, Zino and Fluor Spar Co. of Ohio, regarding tho works to bo oreotod at tho Marblo mino, Frodonia. Wo statod in a general way in our last wook's issuo that a plant was contraotod for and today wo aro onablod to give many of tho dotails, Tho mill building will bo 28x80, a vory heavy frame being usod. Besides this thoro will bo tho and ongino rooms, of sizo sufficient for In horso power. Cooloy's latest patented jigs will bo installed, of sufficient capacity for 300 tons daily. Tho breaking and crushing maohinery, as woll as tho jigs, will bo furnished by Mr. of Joplin, who was horo a fow days ago. It is thought that tho throo shafts now in operation will supply oro suffioiont for tho maximum oapaoity of tho plant. Mr. Trout states that tho average of tho ontiro voin will run as follows: Load 12 por cont., zino 3 per cont., the balanoo boing largely fluor spar, with moro or Iobs It is tho intontion of tho compa ny, Mr Trout states, to grind their clean, high grado lluor spar, tor tho aoid and glass works, and a snoltor furnaoo mav bo orootod in tho noar f uturo if tho zino should nrovo to increase in tho voin as rapidly as it has dono tho last 20 foot of sinking. Zino and load furnacos in this district will bo a nocossity should dovolopmonts bo mado as ovorything now indicates. Deeds Recorded. J B MoKinloy to M J Davis, CO aoros on Blood's orook, $300.- .

KtOK f(l:&KHblHOKHO4HOf0CHO mmm I MNDELUDGENHEIM -CO: Mmmmmwm&mmmMmMmmmm Of Work Accomplished by the Legislature. Tho legislative mill has coasod to grind and its work, which is said to havo boon tho most prolific for twolve yours, is now boforo tho people for thoir verdiot. Ono hundred and thirty-one measures woro turnod out, ono fourth of which rolato to tho oitios of Lonisvillo, Lexington and Covington. While thoro wero not many bills passed that aro so vory important, thoro woro many killed that moant much mischief to tho people Tho duty of a legislator is just as imperative to clotoot thoso ovils, and destroy thorn, as to invont and so euro the passage of meritorious ones. A legislative session, ovory two years, is a constitutional ovil that tho pooplo must onduro for sixty days, and thoy take desperate ohancos in tho ordoal, and should fool proud if thoy come out no worse than thoy started. If tho Bossions wero four or six years opart thoro would bo somo delay, no doubt, in scouring tho littlo noedod legislation fathered by ne cessity, but thoro would be fowor opportunities for tho legislative pirates and jugglers to got in thoir work; thoroforo I am convinced that a longer poriod should legislative years. Tho Revenue bill booarao a law just boforo tho gavol foil, after ono of tho most stormy oontosts of tho sossion. It was a compromise by tho Senate striking out tho capital appropriation olauso "and tho Houso yielding tho privilego to assosB national banks tho samo as state banks, Tho national banks had their "friends" in tho Sonato, who woro dotorrainod to carry thoir point, or havo no rovbnno bill at nil. So in tho last hour thov threw thoir "capital friends" dosiro to tho Houso, which thoy could but aocept. We shall havo no now capital for two years at loast. Tho dofoat of tho measure may bo attributed to several- onuses; a blunder in driftiujf origin! bill; tht raiitsks , n t to build anothor, and stay r or go 10 tuo oiKieiair, it we:i go to a fair at all.
