display of mineral evar seen
anywhere in the world. 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,

take tha responsibility of the
safe return of specimens loan
ed for ths occasion. On the
other hand, if the return Is not

A commuulcntlou has been kent out'

which is of importance to the own

be:rs the signature of Fred lennett,

Ri.harJ A. . Balllnger., secrdiiry of

, Inst , as follows :
"The attention of the department,
has been calied to the last cKiiibb of
paragraph 41 of the mtuUiK regula
tions, approved March 2D, TjO'i, which!
provides as follows:
"The vein or lode musi be fully

acter ot mineral, the extent t'.iereof
whe:her oro has been extracted and
of what amount and value' and such
other ln-to as will support the ap
plicant's Mitigation that the claim,
contains a valuable mineral d? posit.
"It seems that the expression, the
extent thereof is being construed
as meaning that the applicant must
affirmatively show by prooi of explor
ation that the vein exists iu fact
throughout the whole length of the
claim. i

The defendant was cool and col

had come a'l the way from Pocatel-
