G. COLLINS, Clerk W. D. PIERCE, C. G. ATKIN, Auctioneers SLAUGHTER OO MTlNUMp , ; News has ben received by the Armenian national delegation in London that two thousand Armen ian lcvilians were murdered In cold blood during the recent attacks on Marash and Aintab, in Asia Minor. The Turks and Kurds have been sys tematically slaughtering the Armen ians ever since the armistice was signed. The massacres will un doubtedly continue until adequate protection is furnished the remen-; ant of this primitive Christian race.! This protection can only be furnished by the league of nations, and the high council is waiting for the United States senate to take final action on the peace treaty and league coven ant. Many American citizens have set their faces against the idea of this country's accepting a mandate for America. We cannot, however, desert them In their hour of peril, and we should assist in working out plans for the preservation of th lives of the Armenian and the plac ing of their government upon a sub stantial foundation . They fought well during the great war and de serve freedom from the yoke of Turkey. Long delay in going to the rescue means the annihilation of these Asiatic Christians.—Salt Lake Tribune. * ' CARD OF THANKS We wish to express our sincere thanks to all the friends and neigh bors who were so kind to us and as sisted so much during the illness and at the death of our beloved husband and father. • The beautiful flowers and expres sions of sympathy have helped to sooth our sorrow.

The Butte & Superior Mining com pany entered the current year with net earnings running at the rate of $12 per share annually on the 297,000 shares of stock outstanding. The Cornell mines of Hamilton, Nev., which have been steady produc ers for the past twenty-five years, have been taken over by the Cornell Silver Mines company of Ely. Having shown consistent improve ment in the last ninety days, the zinc market seems to have shaken off the discouraging burdens under which it has labored since the fall of 1918. While complete figures' on the total metal production of the Anaconda Cop per Mining company for 1919 are not yet available, place copper output at 150,000,000 pounds. Petroleum products from American oil wells for the past year are esti mated to have brought in the markets upward of $2,000,000,000, which is an increase of $500,000,000 over the fig ures for 1918.

The 1918 figures had been the highest ever. Averaging 100 tons daily, the Tlntic Standard closed the first two weeks of the month of January with a total of sixty carloads of ore to the. mine's credit, and from nil Indications the output will be even heavier for the remainder of the present month. Over the mountain from Pioche at the Prince Consolidated mine great ac tivity prevails, although it will be probably ninety days before the No. 2 vertical shaft now being sunk reaches its first objective, the eleven-foot oxi dized iron bed discovered by the dia mond drills in 1918. The discovery of the new oil pools in northern Louisiana, the broadening of proved fields in northern Texas, Ok lahoma and Kansas, and in big pioneer ing work that has been going on in Wyoming are the outstanding features in the story of 1919's great efforts to open up new sources of supply.
