Ac cordingly twenty or more met in the Reed building on Main street, Tuesday evening, and an organization was effected by the selection of John K. Cook, chairman, and Lewis H. Bea son, secretary. Mr. Kapp explained that the State of Nevada, through the late session of the legislature, had appropriated $5,000 for the purpose of having the mineral "esources displayed at Goldfield and that every effort was be ing put forth to have every mining camp between Oregon, Idaho, Arizona and California and I'tah, represented in some way. He also went on to say that the citizens of Goldfield had raised a sum a;grosnting $.r,,00(, or more, to defray ex lenses of the -convention and that thrre is every indication that It will bo the largest con- clave of mining men ever held, in this country.

Mr. Kapp de-tared further that the Mining Congress Commission acting for the state, will psy the cost of 1 ransporaiion of the exhibits to Gol'lfied and will take tha responsibility of the safe return of specimens loan ed for ths occasion. On the other hand, if the return Is not desired, the exhibits will be forwarded for tafo keeping and preservation to the Mackey School of Mines at Reno, there to become the property of the S a'e of Nev a la. - H.che Mnsis Da 11 t inn. hlv Valley Sunt.
