This district, it would neein, hus the inak iner of a permanent, productive and prosperous mining camp. Tonopali's growth has been rapid; its recognition comparatively slow. In studying its short history, how evei, one important factor must not he overlooked its distance from a railroad. Had Tonopah been on or nearer to a railroad than it is, its growth would have been more rapid, and also its recognition. That it is now receiving more attention at the hands of the investing classes, speaks in loud terms for its splendid possi bilitii's. Tonopah has been put to the test; and has not been found wanting. Capital hesitates before making in vestment in a mining camp sixty miles from a railroad. It costs more money to operate under such condi lions the risk is greater. Supplies having to be hauled in by wagon, means a great increase in the ex pense of operation, to say nothing of the higher price paid for labor and the higher price ef living. A railroad into a new country means a big out lay, which cannot be undertaken un less the actual showing warrants a return on the principal invested. A large amount of money has been in vested in Tonopah, but the larger sums the money required for rail roads, for power plants, etc. have been withheld pending development The heavy capitalists have been wait ing to be shown those interested in promoting the camp have proved equal to trie occasion ; they have made their showing. Every tiling considered the dis tance from the railroad, the geologi cal conditions requiring quite a little speculative "dead" work, and oilier factors it is remarkable that Tono pah operators have been able to ac complish what they have. Mused on a foundation of a sublime faith in tlx outcome, these men have built up an industry the promise of which merits and has merited the attention of the investment world. Under disadvan tageous circumstances, they have ac eornplished an amount of development which is astonishing, and have made a showing which unquestionably as sures a great future for their camp. Shafts have in some instances reached depths of 50 feet and more, and not unusually has it been neces sary to sink several hundred feet to open blind shoots which never came to the surface. The productive area has been gradually extended in nil directions, and not yet has its limit been determined. New ledges are continually being found, and new shippers are constantly being added to the list. Slowly but surely has the district become reeogni.eil by au thorities, and every day, in face or the unmistakable showings, lias it become less possible even for the most exacting and ultra conservative expert to report unfavorably. Tono pah, like Cripple Creek, has forced recognition by its actual merits as a great mineral section. Tonopah is now seeking the assist ance of larger cap! tul. Us promoters have invested every cent they could scrape together to prove the claims they have made for the district. Capital is being directed toward this new Nevada camp, and its growth henceforward will be along different and greater lines. Mills are lieing projected, as also are power plants and other improvements. A railroad is practically assured, bringing with it all the advantages of which Tono pah operators have dreamed during many a long night and day. A new dawn is breaking for Tonopah- the dawn of a greater and more prosper ous era. Merit and intrinsic worth must always in time force reeogni It i tft.utt l-l Im' t-rdi nf tl.i- mi tusl tty Ti"mii in ItM el of !ia tun itng in-umi.lniM-1-v mI I who by their l.illli Mini tiiui wge h.t w ' foli isl the ni'oeniti'Hi ti e i hiiiii ilHt usMireillv merit - Colorado Daily Mining Itccord.

W. II, Tibbals is president of the new com pany; Duncan A. McDonald, vice president; E. J. Waugh, secretary, and E. W. Wilson, treasurer. The property is to be extensively and systematically developed during the present season. Good surface values in gold are found in the ledge, and the promoters of the enterprise expect to make a shipper of it before the end of the year. Salt Lake Herald. During the past autumn and early winter, Mr. J. E. Spurr, of the United States Geological Survey, has been occupied in a study of the geol ogy and ores of Tonopah. Tonopah has produced such an extraordinary quantity of rich ore that naturally a great deal of interest is felt in the results of the Survey's investigation. Since returning to Washington, Mr. Spurr has spent several mouths in the microscropic and comparative study of the rocks and ores of the district, and in the early spring he will return to complete the examina tion of this complicated region. It is hoped that before long some of the problems will have been so fully worked out that a preliminary paper on the district may be given to the public. Company Klcction. On Monday last was held an annual meeting of the stockholders of the Hay A O'Brien Gold Mining Com pany, at which ollieers and directors were elected as follows: J. L. Butler, president; L. (). Kay, vice president and general manager; J. 1. Brissell, secretary; H. H. Davis, treasurer. These gentlemen, with W. J. Sinclair, Fred. J. Siebert and Zeb.
