Northwest Minin« Convention Attend
ed By K. M. Griffith.
GraugevlUe's delegate to the North
west Mining convention held last week
at SjKikane, returned home Saturday
night. The convention was largely at
tended by mining men from all parts
of the country. Mr. Griffith was suc
cessful in having a resolution adopted
by the convention which will stimulate
the production of gold. At the present
price of gold that metal Ls being mined
at a loss it is contended, and the reso
lution deals with a proposition to in
crease the price per ounce.
An effort was being made before
the convention to secure an endorse
ment of the convention of the move be
ing pushed by W. C- McNutt of Elk
City, to have the matter of the con
struction of roads in the forest re
serves taken out of the hands of the
department of agriculture and placed
under the guidance of the bureau of
mines. Mr, Griffith naturally oppos
ed this proposition and was ably assist
ed by Senator N. B. Pettlbone and Rep
resentative Seth Jones, who stopped
off at Spokane on their way home from
Boise where they attended the special
session of the legislature Inasmuch
as the department has already com
menced on road building and has made
availble the money for the tlrst link
in the South Fork rod, It was the sense
of the convention that the building of
the road would only be retarded by the
adoption of the resolutin, is w;as given
a negative vote.
