Hilling Congress.
self explanatory:
national Mining CongresB to be held
in Boise, July 23rd, 24th and 25th,
support of every mining man, min
ing company and business
Idaho. The Mining Congress is
interstate and international in its
character, while with us here in
man m
Idaho it is a state enterprise.
Our state legislature made an ap
propriation last winter of five thou
sand dollars to aid in the work of
this congress, and this amount has
about all been expended.
The burden now falls
on Boise,
and upon the mining and business
interests in our state. We need
money badly, and must have it to
carry this congress to a point of j
success. The citizens of Boise,
through the chamber of commerce, i
are straining every effort in their
power to make tins congress a great
success, and through its chamber of
commerce, they ask all mining com
panies, miners, business men and all
towns and cities throughout Idaho
to render what financial assistance
they can to carry on this mining
congress If you can aid us, please
do so by sending at once to the
Boise chamlier of commerce what
money you feel like contrbuting to
this great, and worthy enterprise,
which will lie so far reaching in its
beneficial results.
This is Idaho's great opportunity
for the mining and business inter
ests to come squarely to tiie front.
Kindly advise me at the earliest
possible moment.
