Mercantile HodgCS-Cook Company SEEK TO IMPROVE MR SIMM The mining Industry should be proud j of Senator Henderson and lilt man of 1 Nevada, say the Mining and Financial Review. Both of these gentlemen are ; constantly oa the alert to do something ; tor the mining Industry. Nevada has the llvest bunch of mining men In the est. and this Is saying a great deal when we consider that the Rocky mountain country la teeming with min ing activity at the present time. But Nevada I a big state and the mining men there are big. broad-minded op erator constantly looking for another Comstock. a Goldfleld or a Tonopah. Senator Plttman la tha author of the Pittman law which pledge the United States to reproduce 150.000.000 ounces of silver for the United State treaaury. Now Senator Henderson ha Intro duced a bill "to authorise loans on 11 ver bullion; to regulate Interstate ship ments of ore containing silver, and for other purposes." This bill If It I en acted Into law will enable silver pro ducers In the country to borrow 87 cents an ounce on all silver produced, rather than to be compelled to sell on market a low a the government protected price of 11 an ounce. Our financier must be asleep at the witch 'down in Washington to allow the British to ao manipulate the silver market as to get the price down so unreasonably below 11 per ounce. Ev- idently Washington does not under-1 stand the situation. It would appear that Bllver producers need a selling or ganization such as the copper pro ducers now maintain. In the present limited silver production there Is no luestlon but that with a buying pool large enough to carry even one or two million ounces of silver the price today would be nearer 12 an ounce than 11 an ounce. Senator Henderson s out would provide a plan somewhat simi lar to a buying pool. The bill will have some mighty rough sledding before It becomes a law, as It seems to be the spirit of eastern financial center and Washington to help the miners as little as possible. The American congres is doing a good work In overcoming .mis rnnditlon and bv keeDing everlastingly after congress the mining industry may again be made prosperous.
