This ore body was Just recently struck and no ore outside of the de velopment work has been extracted. On the easterly end of this" fissure is located the Susan Duster mine, which has opened up a large body of zinc lead, iron and silver ore. This ore oody has been developed to a depth rr 4uu teet, averaging 40 feet In width, and the length, of the ore shoot has never been determined. The aveage of the ore and charac ter, Is similar to that of the Green wood. It Is estimated that there are over 200,000 tons of ore blocked out from the 400-foot level to the sur face. ! The Susan Duller ore body in it self is aT; immense mine and the de velopments there are enough to keep a moderate ize3 milling plant in ouef atio'n. fv-1 man; years.

V'.-:- SILVER PT11 !S UP M il m . Among the interesting papers read before the session of the American Mining congress 'at Goldfield was one by Judge C. C. Good win.tr eat Ing on the silver question as it appli es to American trade with the ori ent. The Judge said: "There is a special reason for re turning to this question now. The myriads of men in the orient.Spanlsh Asia and northern Africa will not, cannot and have not changed ' their money. Some states . have accepted the gold standard,, but this has been wiiDk loreigners. Tne money or the workers, who create the country's wea:tn nas remained the same; And that money is silver money. "Thoueh silver, measured hr rnM. has fallen nearly or quite sixty per cent, employers in silver money coun tries pay employes the same weight in silver that they paid thirty years ago. The result Is that they can sell umr wares to us at about one-half what they could thirty years ago, bvt when they come tl buy of us, ine cost, in tneir money, has been doubled, and exchanges have fallen until our exDort ; trade with .. half the world's people has been practi cally niiea.

Utah mine owners are giving much attention to the zinc industry, says a correspondent of the Mining Scien tific Press, since the tariff placed upon the product went Into effect. At Park City the Grasseli Chemical Co. is treating the zinc product from the Daly-Judge mine in the new plant recently constructed. Fifty tons per day is bving concentrated from which the mining company is making a net profit of , $10,000 per month. Some alterations have been made in the methods of treatment which effects a saving of 8 per cent and the mill ia to be Increased . to a capacity of 150 tons per day. The United States S. R. & M. Co. has Just installed a Huff electrostatic seperator in its cc i centrating plant at West Jordan, and a trial run on the ores from the com pany's Bingham mines has resulted in securing a 55 per cent zinc con centrate. ,By this process the com pany expects to make a saving of zinc which has hitherto been a total loss of $500 to $600 per month. George W. Helntz, manager for, the company explains that by this . pro cess the lead-silver Is segregated from the zinc. The zinc carries of' t ho gold in the slag and both were a total lossss fas It was: found, unprof itable to ship this slag to the east ern refinery and have it treated. , "The appeals of the eastern Dress for extended . trade relations with China,' If illustrated, would make a hilarious showing In a comic almanac in me meantime, tne awful Chinese live has begun. to swarm, her manu factures are beinsr raDidlv extended. and it will not be long before Bhe viu be laying down in our ports iron and steel and wooden goods and . a thousand other staple articles , at prices that will defy the competition oi aii generous nations.
