THE MINING QUILQOK
? Edward Ryan, state inspector of
mines of Nevada, has been in
Uoldfield this week and while here
stated to a representative of the
Goldfield News and Tribune that
conditions throuRhout the state
with relation to the mining industry
in particular, are at present inost
gratifying ind the outlook for the
present year is far better than it
has been for years past says the
Tribune. A large number of min
ing districts are undergoing thor
ough development, with results
that bid fair to place the state in
the forefront of mining states in
point of the value of its production.
Every county in Nevada, according
to Mr. Ryan, is experiencing a
marked revival in mining activity
and a number ot the old camps that
have been quiet or nearly deserted
for many years are giving indica
tions of "coming back" with a
vengeance. Mr. Ryan is almos*
constantly traveling over the state,
visiting mines and prospects and no
man in Nevada is better qualified
to judge of general mining condi
tions than he.
Coal Consumers Organize.
Recent developments in the coal sit
uatlon In tlio Philippines, including .1
shortage in the supply of fuel for the
archipelago during tho last few
monfhs and the Increasing use of fuel
in the Islands for Industrial purposes
In which fuel costs are of prime im
portance, havo led to the organiza
tion of an association of large coal
consumers in Manila which is likely !
to be of great Importance in Indus |
trial matters in the far east.
Origin of "Hoosler."
It is generally believed that the
word "HooBlor" Is of southorn origin,
at first nppllod to any uncouth porson
from the w*^t, but it was Anally lo
calized for Indiana, where It waa
adopted as a badge of distinction.
Explanation Wanted.

THAT OLD STANOPAT WHOOP
To men somewhat along in years
the old stunlpat whoop so familiar
in the '70s sound really re-freshing
and brings many reminders of days
long past. The New York Tribune
printed one of them the other day.
It was as follows:
"Rebel yells of victory in Con
gress, business shutting down,
bread lines, soup houses, starving
children in the North? Who's to
blame?"
That veil came from -Massachu
setts where the state Bureau of
Statistics has just been published
the fact that the manufactured
products of that commonwealth for
1913 exceed tin products of 1912
by $129,000,000. The mills are
eo far from shutting down that the
Amoskeag mills with 1 0,000 em
ployees, will not even reduce wag. 5
In consequence of the lesal reduc
tion in the nours of labor. The
holiday trade was larger than last
year.
One can have no hard f ? lings
against such men. They honestly
believe^that the tariff saved the
county instead of the m n in the
ranks ami genius of Lincoln and
the generals who 1 d the rmies
and ihnt the orly thing that has
prevented the country from uoing
back to poverty and barbarism is a
protective tariff. Now tha the
tariff has been tinkered with, the
destru lion o? the nation is certain.
These persons deserve the sym
pathy of all mankind. I( would be
as wicked to tp^ak of them unkind
ly ss to a-snil a patient alllicted
with incurable melancholia. They
are doomed to a life of gloom and
it is -cry doubtful if there is any
thing that can be done to bring
them back to a normal view of
existence. ?St Joseph Observer.
SHEEP ORDERS AGAIN ISSUEO
New general erders re-p?eting
the dipping of sheep to prevent di
sease and the fixing of the sheep
tax rate for 1914 at 1 mills were
nu.t'ers considered Saturday after
noon by the state shetp commis
sion. The annual report of (5. Del I
Wolfenspargtr, secretary of the
commission, was approved and or
dered published. The r<port la*
? e?n suit to the state printer at
Carson Citv.
rhe tax of <1 mills on ths dollar
is based on the asfu s.'d valuation
"f sheep throughout the state.
The general order in regi rd to
th? dipping of'bueks brought in
from other states was rc-enacted.
Bucks brought into Nevada must
be dippprl twice within 20 days
after entering the state. The order
as to the inspection of nil sheep
annually was again issued. The an
nual inspection is to begin about
March 1.
Tbos ? present at Saturday's meet
ing in addition to Secretary VVoif
enbargrr were O. W. Ward, presi
dent of the commission, presidng;
C. W. Griswold of Klko County,
John G. Taylor of Lovelock, Dr. J.
J. Gallagher, in charge of field
work, and Dr. W. J. Hammond of

1HE HOPEFUL STANDPATTERS
Ileing a kind man, the presiden
does not wish to grieve the Hcpub-.
lican stnndpat politicians; but it is
his duty to inform tl'em that "busi
ness is picking tip." The sad thing
about this report to them is that
it is true. Still, it is n it to lie ex
pected that the fctandpat leaders
will give up all hope of bad luck to
the country. "There's many a slip
twixt the cup and (he lip," I hey
keep saying to themselves, cheerful
like. Maybe some big banks will
"bust," may be the chinch bug?
will cat up the wheat or the bell
we'evil get hark in the cotton. May
be there'll be a war. Then wo can
say, "the InrifT done it" or "the
Democrats done it," and the boys
can get the political jobs bitok.
