PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY 1Y E . A. 8KILLMAN. SATURDAY. APRIL 5. 1903. Industrial prosperity has started the tide of immigration from Europe to this oountry again. In the first two months of the present year 48,000 immigrants landed at New York, againt 35,000 dur ing the corresponding months of last year. _ In an interview at Los Angeles this week Mr. Harriman is reported to have su!J "that the Southern Pacifio is oat of politios." Also that: "We started this year to spend 820,000,000 on the S. P. alone, and we will spend that amount before the year is ont,” Simplioissimus, an illustrated Berlin journal noted for the brutality of its oartoons, and which has often been con* flscated by the police because of its ir reverence toward high personages, ap pears with a drawing representing Miss Alice Roosevelt at sea in an open boat, an immense fat hog in one end of the boat and Miss Roosevelt standing in the other holding a pig wrapped in the Stars and Stripes. This drawing is in scribed : "We reoeived yonr Princes, you must admit our bogs.” The Student Record of April 1 is oat with Bernard O’Hara as editor, who takes the place of George Springmeyer, honorably expelled from the Nevada University for a facetious article regard ing President Stubbs. The objection able portion of the editorial written by Springmeyer on President Stubbs, and which aroused the ire of the college authorities sufficiently to cause his ex pulsion, was as follows: ««* * * ga0b a warm article that his feet left burnt tracks on the matting of the floor, except when be was asked to run for the United States Senate on the Republican ticket, at which time they got so cold that it was a case of chilblains.” The last words of John P. Altgeld should provide great encouragement in those who battle for the right princi ples. Governor Altgeld’s last words were: ‘‘I am not discouraged. Things will right themselves. A pendulum swings one way and then another, but the steady pull of gravitation is toward the oenter of the earth. Any structure must be plumb if it is to endure. 80 it is with nations. Wrong may seem to triumph; right may seem to be defeat ed; but the gravitation of eternal jus tice is upward toward the throne of God. Any political institution, if it is to endure, must be plumb with that line of justioe.” The Paoific Ooast Miner of Apr il 1 contains an exhaustive report of White Pine Mining District and especially the mines of Ely and Hamilton. It is undoubtedly the most thorough mining write-up of old White Pioe that it has received in many years, and indicates that Mr. Galkins was not idle while so journing there. Accompanying the re port are a number of half-tone portraits of some of White Pine’s prominent mining and business men; also a half tone pioture of the business house of W. B. Graham at Ely and one of the new Ohainman mill at the same place. The Miner also oontains the oonalud ing portions of its report on Eureka Dis trict that was begun in the issue of March 15. ____________ Mining and Soientifio Press : Little relianoe is to be plaoed in any adver tisement of mines or mining stocks in Eastern papers. This is a sweeping statement, but the facts justify it. What are considered “ reliable" news papers offer their editorial oolumns to indiscriminate “ puffs" of any scheme, however swindling or worthless. Even the Boston Traveller—once considered a staid, steady, conservative journal— prostitutes itself that way. It offers to publish an editorial artiole endorsing any wildcat mining swindle that will give it an advertisement of 150 lines. To the credit of Western journalism, it it to be said that the papers in this west half of Amerioa are very few that would listen to anoh a proposition, much lees make it and boldly proclaim the disgraceful fact. A leading New York City advertising agency an nounces its ability to get any kind of a “business” statement in the daily press under the bead of telegrapbio news, with a regular date bead, just like bona fide news, for so much a line. Sucb procedure is a crime, bnt is daily prac ticed by those who know better. Theatrical Company Sink lag Bales.

Salt Lake Herald: George Wilson, the mining expert, has returned to Salt Lake from a three weeks’ trip to Tonopah, Ray, Klondike and other sections of Nevada that are attracting so much attention just now. He went out in the interest of W. H. Child and others, and returns with a report which, while it may not set well with the boom element, will be accepted as true by all conservative men, whether they have become interested over there or not. Tonopah, Mr. Wilson says, has prob ably the making of one of the biggest mines in the country, with a good chance for the Salt Lake & Tonopah Company to make a strong second to the Tonopah Company itself, but where the rest will get off at is a grave question. The Salt Lake crowd was lucky in getting close to the parent company’s workings on one end, but the other, he says, has been se cured by the old corporation for such a long distance on the supposed course of the veins, that outsiders stand little show of getting anything good. The country has been staked off for miles in all directions, but when he was at camp there were just sixty miners em ployed, and with both the companies named doing nothing bnt sinking, he could not see that the force would be ma terially increased for several months to come. From fifteen to twenty men are daily going into the Tonopah district, but it takes most of them only a short time to see that there is nothing for them to stay for and then they pull out again. Mr. Wilson did not return with an idea of giving Tonopah a black eye, and tie said that many mines might yet be dis covered there. The conditions at pres ent, or the development work done, how ever, cannot be counted as holding out any extravagant promise for the future, and the people of that section will be forced, he thinks, to acknowledge it in the near future. UINCOCKAWINU NEWS Fit OH TONOPAH. From the Silt Lake Herald of April 3. Willard D. Thompson returned from a two months' trip to Tonopah and vicinity yesterday morning. He emphasizes every thing said concerning the camp by George Wilson ten days ago, adding that the camp is being boomed far beyond its merits, par ticularly on the coast. Flaming posters are scattered all the way from San Franoisco to Reno advising miners that they can get work in the camp at $4 per day, when, as a matter of fact, there are only about 45 min ers employed by the Tonopah Company, and very little doing on any other property, A few days ago Mr. Thompson met a party of fifteen miners who landed there with only $5 50 between them, and they started out the same night to “hoof” it back across the sixty miles of desert to Soda ville. He said a great many things about the camp that would not set well with those who are promoting companies and floating stock, but as he had no desire to be classed as a "knocker,” be refused to have his opin ions quoted. It was enough at this time, be said, to warn men looking for work to stay away from that camp.
