A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Ah, when shall all men's good
Be each man's rule, and universal peace
Lie like a shaft of light across the land,
And like a line of beams athwart the sea,
Through all the circle of the golden gear?
THE PASSING OF THOMAS F. WALSH
Tho death of Thomas F. Walsh, tho well
known mining man, will cast a deep shadow of
sorrow in every locality where the precious
metal minor may have taken up abode. Mr.
Walsh was not only a king among mining men,
hut a king among the better classes of all men.
His worth was not to be measured by the im
mense size of the fortune he had accumulated
during his lifetime, further than the good uses
which he made of his money and the sunshine
it brought where shadows and clouds had cast
their gloom and accompanying misery. His
death has removed from the world an unusual
figure and the sombre of tho bier of this after
noon will bring gloom- to many a home where
the warmth of Mr. Walsh's generosity in the
past has brought comfort.
To the mining world, in the common accept
ance of the term, the loss will be keenly felt, as
Mr. Walsh had great faith in tho mineral wealth
of the country and stood ready at all times, with
money and unquostioned ability, to assist in the
development of the country's mineral wealth.
But in this regrettable death, the working miner,
the man underground with tle uncertain tallow
dip lighting the way of the pick, drill and shovel
to fortune or to disappointment, the loss is still
greater. In comparative poverty Mr. Walsh was
a friend to the miner; in great wealth he was
not only toil's friend, but the champion and
advocate of labor's lull rights. It "was not a
change of heart after wealth was his and he
could affoid to be liberal, but it was wealth that
made possible the bursting of the bud into the
full and fragrant roso of righteousness, justice
When the miners of Colorado lined up to bat
tle for the eight-hour day, Thomas F. Walsh,
then a great mine owner and the employer of
lmndrcds of men, insisted that the eight-hour
day be granted, and by the aid of his great
wealth and iufluenco it was granted and the
eight-hour working day not alone to the miner,
but to workers in all callings, stands as a law in
many of tho states of tho union.
This feeling for the rights and comforts of
labor did not start nor stop in the eight-hour
day innovation. Mr. Walsh always had a care
for the comforts of the employed. After open
ing his great Camp Bird mine in Ouray, Colo
rado, he erected for the use of his men, not a
boarding nor bunk house, but a palatial hotel
steam heated, electric lighted, carpeted rooms;
provided Avitli good beds, a fine billiard and
pool hall, reading and writing rooms, private
baths and what not that you would expect to
find in a first-class hostelry ; and the cost of liv
ing at the Camp Bird was no greater than at the
mines where the accommodations for men were
of a questionable nature. The family of a work
man who met with accident or death in the
Walsh mines was never permitted to suffer
the little fatherless tots received the same bright
toys maybe on a more elaborate scale than
before the father was taken; there was a home
for tho widow and a substantial guarantee
against suffering. The Walsh gifts were heart
gifts there was a total absence of show or os
tentation and the great majority of his philan
thropies will never be known only to. the bene
ficiaries. Prior to fifteen years ago Mr. Walsh was a
humble prospector, searching the romantic
mountains of the silvery San Juan for tho hid
den treasure. In conjunction, and perhaps as
an aid to this quest, he operated a small assay
office in the little town of Silverton. One after
noon an old-prospector entered his office with a
sack of ore upon which he wished a test. Tn run
ning over the pieces of rock Mr. Walsh discov
ered some carrying rich gold values. An assay
showed something like $400 in gold. When the
old prospector returned he was given tho report,
but expressed a lack of confidence in the possi
bilities of the San Juan as a gold-producing
section. No argument could convince him dif
ferently. Learning that his patron had no inten
tion of retracing his steps, Mr. Walsh learned
from him that the specimens had been picked up
in the Imogene basin in Ouray county. A few
days' search and Mr. "Walsh came upon an
abandoned tunnel. lie examined tho formation
and then tho dump. Better specimens than were
brought to him were found in great quantities.
The ledge matter in the tunnel gave still more
promising ore and several assays revealed min
eral of fabulous richness and gave to the coun
try one of its greatest gold producers. It is es
timated that the mine has produced $4,000,000
annually since its equippage. About ten years
ago tho Venture company of London paid Mr.
Walsh $17,000,000 for an interest in the prop
erty. Since transferring an interest in the Camp
Bird, Mi Walsh has made his winter home in
Washington, D. C, and has spent his summers
at Wolhurst, a beautiful piece of property near
Denver, which he purchased from the estate of
the late Senator Edward Wolcott. He has often
been urged to run for governor of Colorado and
to represent that state in tho senate of tho
United States, but ho steadfastly refused, pre
fering to devote his time and money to the do
velopment of the mining resources of his adopt

constantly beating for his fellowmen.
