North Town Destroyed By United Press SPOKANE, July 15-The town of Milan, Wash., was wiped out by fire today. One hundred are homeless. Investigating Power Quin River farmers are investigating the feasibility of installing hydro elec tric plants on several of the small creeks in that section of Nevada. The power generated is to be applied to pumping for irrigation purposes. A recent bulletin issued by the Unit ed States geological survey states that owing to unfavorable market conditions that the metal production from this state for the year of 1921 will be ma terially reduced. The total output for the year 1920 was $23,878,512, of which $12,008,879 was in gold and silver. The bullet hi states that owing to the strike conditions in Tonopah and Di vide that the precious metal production will be considerably decreased from that of last year. There was a decrease of approxi mately $1,000,000 in gold production from 1919 to 1920 and this will show even a greater decrease this year. Copper production" for this year' will be at the lowest point in a number of years owing to the closing of practic ally all of the mines and smelters. The low price of lead has closed practically all of the large producers of the state, while zinc is in the same condition. Some lead is being produc ed in the Pioihe district and a number of ttie silver-lead 'districts are operat ing. By United Press SEATTLE, July 15. The bandits who robbed the bank messenger of $25, 000 and escaped are believed to have been from Chicago. The police have a code message which they think was sent by one of the party, suinmonirg his pals. In relation to silver productions the bulletin states : "The production of silver in 1920 was 7,745,093 ounces, valued at $8,442,151, an increase from 6,863,580 ounces in 1919. The strike at Tonopah and Divide will certainly reduce the output of silver in the state for 1921, as the production was small in May and June. In 1920 Nye county produced 4,903.987 ounces of silver, most of it from mines at Tonopah. The Tonopah Divide mine, in Esmeralda county, was idle early in the year, as the custom mill at Millers ! was closed on account of the labor strike. The capacity of the Mexican mill, -at Virginia City, has been increas ed so as to' treat more custom ore, as development continues to open the ore bodies of the Comstock lode. At Rochester the Nevada Packard mill was idle until May, but the Rochester Nevada silver mill was being operated with only slight interruptions. In Lin coln county, which produced 567,678 Lpunces of silver in 1920, ore. shipments were curtailed during the first half of 1921." evaoa Its High in Foreign Born White Fanners The buerau of census at Washington j Others arc credited on the list, but has compiled a list of the foreign-born white farmers in the different states of, the Union. Nevada, considering her population, bears a high percentage of foreign-born white farmers, as the nuibcr is given at 884. Many of the southern states have but a scattering of foreign-born farmers as such states as South Carolina show but 141, while Georgia has but 328. Italians lead in this class, as 198 are credited, while but 45 Irishmen till the soil. Of Germans, 124 are farmers, while but one Hollander is credited with tilling the -soil. France has 49, Norway is lucky with 13, Sweden 37, . and' Switzerland 58. . many feel that there has lieen some mistake, as. for instance, the crediting of but one Hollander in the farming business does not bear out the state ments made during the war times when many supposed to be Germans proved to be Dutch.
