SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1903 HOME HAKE METALS. Marked Increase In' Production of Uranium 1n 1002. The Mining and Scientific Press of Sao Francisco says that there was a marked increase in the production of uranium and vanadium minerals in 1902, which, as reported to the sur vey, amounted tc 3,810 tons, valued at 148,125, or $12 63 per ton. This, of course, represents the crude ore. In 1901 the production was 375 tons of crude ore. A portion of the urani um ore was treated, giving a concen trated product of twenty-five tons, which was valued at 18,000, or $320 per ton. Although it has been determined that these metals have beneficial ef fects when used in the manufacture of steel, considerable study of them is necessary before their commercial position with respect to one another or to nickel or chromium can be def initely determined. Questions came up as to which of the various irons hardened by them are the best adapted for steel drills, for dies and shoes in stamp mills, for car axles, carpenters' tools, etc., as to which will retain the best cutting edge, which will heat the least when in use, and which will make the toughest iron. The CloHlnsr Act. The Virginia Enterprise says that "owing to the shortness of funds in the Storey county treasury, the com missioners have found it necessary to cut off all expenses possible. After the first of next month there will be no more street lights on the old Corn stock. The fire department is to be reduced to two men and the one policeman doing duty at night will be dispensed with." Poor old Virginia! It seems a pity that a place once the liveliest in the world should go so com pletely to the dogs that there is nothing left worth stealing and the few people left there must either stay at home nights or carry lanterns. yThe pirates of the Corns tock have cast a gloom over Virginia City and buried its bright prospects. It will never be resurrected until the pirates are driven from the lode and honest men get the mines into their hands. Mining and Engineering Review. Mine Is Hoodooed. A dispatch from Seattle says be cause of continued disasters resulting in loss of life, 100 men have quit work in the Treadwell mine on Douglass island, Alaska. All gave up their positions last week. Forty returned on the steamer Doplhin, which brings the news of the wholesale desertion of the mine employes'. The men do not make any charge of mismanage ment or an unsafe condition of the mine. They rather intimate that the most famous quartz property in Alaska is "hoodooed." In support of this contention they cite that seven miners have met violent deaths with ' in a week at the Treadwell. Three of these were killed in one day by the falling of a derrick. Explosions and other accidents caused the death of the others. I Helping Carson. Carson City would undoubtedly be from fifty to one hundred families to the good, In the way of population, had she more $20, $30 and $40 per month residences for rent. Sir.ce To nopah was first discovered hardly a week has passed that people have not stopped off and looked for suit able homes for their families. The kind they want is difficult to secure, and finally after fruitless efforts many of them reluctantly go on to some other town most of them to California. However, us it is, Tono pah has added materially to Carson City's population, and once her mines bftgin paying dividends her influence on this city's prosperity will be felt immediately.

Indian Kills SaAVrlnc Hon and Commit Suicide. A strange story comes from Shun, on the C. A C. railroad. The News rade a mention a few days ago of the death of an Indian there, but was unable to give porticulars. His name was George Sam. It is George's wife who is wearing pitch and ashes. Sam bad a son and daughter. The daughter is afflicted with St. Vitis dance and good physi cians have been unable to cure her. A short time ago the son was taken down with a serious malady and after the Indian medicine man had failed to effect a cure, a regular white phy sician was called in. He told the Indian father that nothing could be done, but that the boy would probably linger some time. The boy suffered frightfully and after the father could endure it no longer, he seized his shotgun and placing it to his son's head, killed him instantly to relieve his suffeing. Then almost immediately the father discharged the remaining barrel into his own head, likewise suffering in stant death. It may not be the Christian method of ending trials, but the Indian father who could kill his own son, when he thought so much of that son as not to care to survive him, has a heart that is full of human emotion and human love. Carson News. YELLOW ASTER TO RESUME Carload of Miners Arrives From Missouri. An Associated Press dispatch says that the Yellow Aster mine will start up this week, and that people are now coming in instead of leaving the camp. Saturday morning an 7 o'clock a special train on the Santa Fe brought a carload of miners for the Yellow Aster. , It is thought that all the properties here will begin operation within a few days. Miners will be hired re gardless of the unions. This is glad news to the business interests oT the camp after three months of idleness. The rebuilding of the burned portion of the town has begun and Indications are that the camp will be rehabili ted within a few weeks. ' A later dispatch from Bakersfield says that all is quiet at Randsburg. Instead of 200 non-union men, which were talked of, only nineteen came. These were brought from Joplin, Mo., and came by a special from Barstow an account of the regular train arriv ing at night. Sheriff Kelly and Dep uty Quinn, who left Bakersfield this morning, have arrived at the camp, No trouble has occurred and none is anticipated, though the union men still refuse to go to work unless the $3 50 wage scale is recognized..
