BIG INCREASE IN
PRODUCTION OF IDAHO MINERALS Geological Survey Estimates the Metal Output of the State for the Year 1912 at $ 21 , 000 , 000 . Washington, Jan. 8.—In 3912 the metal output of Idaho, according to preliminary estimates by C. N. Gerry, of the United States geological survey, j was valued at nearly $21,000,000, an in- ; crease of about 10 per cent over the value for 1911. Increases were made j in the production of copper, lead and sine, while the output of gold and sil ver slightly decreased. The added value was due partly to the better prices of silver, copper and zinc pre vailing in 1912. There was a slight decrease of about 4 per cent in gold production, lowering the output for 1912 to about $ I,.'100,000. This decrease is traceable to lessened production from siliceous ore and partly from copper ore, as gold from placers and lead ore | Increased. The Lost Packer copper j mine, the ore of which contains con-1 siderable gold, was unproductive, and j less gold came from the siliceous ores: of Owyhee and Klmore counties. I Placers, particularly those worked by dredges, bad a greatly increased gold output. Two boats in Poise county,I two in l.emlii and two In Clearwater were active. The Silver Output. The silver output was nearly the same as that of 1911, or approximately 8.196.000 ounces. Silver production is principally from lead ore, but the amount of silver per ton Is gradually decreasing in the older mines. Al though shipments of lead ore increased, the total silver output slightly do creased. Many of the Coeur d'Alene mines marketed more than the usual amount of silver, but others decreased their output. An increase of over 46 per cent was noted in the copper production, In spite of the fact that the Lost Packer smelter, at Ivers, was idle in 1912. The estimated production of about 7.500.000 pounds came principally from the Umpire Copper company, in Crater county, and the Snowstorm mine, in Shoshone county, each property shar ing the increase. The 100-ton mill at the Snowstorm concentrated part of the ore the last half of the year. Lead Production. Lead production increased about 2 per cent, the total for 1912 being about. 279,000,000 pounds. Prom the activity toward the end of the year, the price of the metal and the improved pro duction of some of the large Coeur d'Alene mines, a greater Increase was expected, but shipments from several mines at Mace and Wardner were much less than in former years. The Hercules, Heela, Morning, Stewart, and Ontario mines had better results, ami the Bunker Hill upheld its great record. Lemhi county was the source of about 18,000,000 pounds .of lead, largely from the Latest Out and Pitts burg Idaho mines at Gilmore The Blaine county production was small near Halley, but at Arco the 'Wilbert Mining company operated a new con centration plant and produced nearly 1 . 500.000 pounds. The lead smelter at Hahn was burned In September and a lead furnace at Clayton, in Custer county, was the only smelter operated in the state. The lead production of Idaho represented 65 per cent of the value of the total metal output in 1912, or about $12,500,000 Figures in Zinc. There was an increase of 62 per cent In the shipment of zinc concentrates in 1912, the total spelter output being about 13,500,000 pounds. The Success mine had a most productive year, hav ing shipped over 1,000 tons of concen trates a month. A second set of Muc quisten tubes were in operation at the Morning mine, thus doubling the zinc output. The Surprise, at Pine creek, the Black Horse. r>ar Murray, and mines near Ketchum contributed, and the Amazon Manhattan made ship ments of zinc ore for the first time. L Amusements "Pal«" Witnessed at Turner Theater. "Pals," the beautiful three act com edy drama, was witnessed by a large and very appreciative audience at the Turner theater last night. Never has Boise had a stock company that psu duced such a thoroughly complete evening's entertainment as does the New LcMoyn ï Stock company. "Pals" is full of college atmosphere, bright comedy and pretty little touches of pathos, each and every one of the cast filling their role to perfection. Mr. Condit as Cairo Higgins, the chore boy, was Immense, and Mr. Gur vey certainly uid Justice to his comedy scene in the first act and shows his finished work when he appears in the last act when he declares his love for Kate. Mr. Erickson is seen in an en tirely different role than heretofore, in that of Martin Underwood, tlie crip pled chemist, and does well. Mr. Jonnason as Ned, one of the pals, does not only look the part but plays it. ! This is one of the best things we have seen him do. Mr. LeMoyne as Jim No answers in the Booklovers' Con tent are to be sent in before Jan. 27th, and none after Feb. 1st. j ; j | j Graham. Ned's pal, certainly gets his share of the honors. The part affords him great comedy opportunities and situation and he does not let them pass, each one is a laugh. Miss Delle as Mlggles was perfectly at home in, the second act scene and received a round of applause in her specialty between acts. Miss Peabody surprised her many friends in handling the sympa thetic role of Kate Blaketpore, the girl who loved not wisely. This character In contrast with the other woman parts in the bill has much to do to wards making the bill a winner. Mrs. Si Condit as Dora's old maid aunt was very pleasing, and Miss Charlotte Mundorf as Dora was as charming and winsome as ever, always pleasing her audience. "Pals" will be seen u 11 this week at the Turner and it Is indeed well worth the while. When the Turner theater ad was no ticed at the Progressive banquet Mon day night, when each guest was pre sented with a paper, someone shouted, "Hurrah for the Turner theater." All then noticed the ad and arose with one accord and cheered the theater manager for offering 30 per cent of the gross receipts to the fund for the pay ment of the fines in the contempt case. At the New Boz. The feature of the bill at tlie New Boz for the first part of this week is another of those excellent two-reel subjects which are being shown at this popular show house. It Is "The Power of Silence," by the Lubln company, and Is a western of strong merits. The acting is good and many scenes are shown of large bands of sheep feeding upon the hillsides. An awesome, tragic climax ends the picture, which leaves an indelible impression on one's mind. Miss Leah Baird takes' the title role In "A Woman," a Vitagraph, and her acting is capably supported by Harry REAPING BENEFIT From the Experience of Boise People.

Experts declare that the reason stomach disorders are so common In this country Is due to hasty and care less habits of eating. Stomach trou bles and run-down conditions also usu. ally go together. John Lind of Oneonta, N. Y., says: "I had a bad stomach trouble for fif teen years and became so weak that I could hardly walk or do any work. My appetite was very poor, and It seemed Impossible to get any relief. Since taking two bottles of Vinol I find that it has already made a remarkable Im provement in my health, my digestion is much stronger, and I have gained in weight." Vlnoi makes weak stomachs strong because it strengthens and tones up the weakened, tired and overtaxed nerves of the digestive organs. Vinol is easily assimilated by the weakest stomachs, and is delicious to the taste. Try a bottle of Vinol with the under standing that your money will bo re turned If It docs not help you. Me Crum & Deary, druggists, Boise, Idaho. —Adv. Morey, Courtenay Foote and a strong cast. The Biograph company is there with the laugh producers in two strong farce comedies by their best comedy players. The Isis. One of the strongest Biblical pictures and one which pleases all is "The Star of Bethlehem," by the Thanhauser company, being shown at the Isis this week. The picture Is well acted by some of the best motion picture play ers and all three reels are clearly photographed. The fourth reel of tlie Dill Is "A Peach for a Prisoner," by the Gaumont company, and is of the first water. At the Cozy. The headliner at the Cozy Is a strong Kalem, "The Driver of the Dead wood Coach," and, as the name suggests, is a western of unusual merit. It has an exciting story connected with It and holds one's attention to the end. Be side this picture the new management has secured four other good releases Which are of the best licensed kind. At the Empress. Three strong feature acts opened this week's bill at the Empress last night. There Is such a variety of amusement handed out in each act that everyone was sure to go away pleased. The show opens with Harold Yates in an excellent song and dance act, in terspersed with some fine imitations of musical Instruments and animals. Ills Imitations of birds and bis acrobatic dancing aro the real hits of his act. McGrata & T age, in a musical act, are j line. They are artists on the banjos, j and Mr. McGrata's English comedy is good. ! An exceptionally fine ventriloquist act Is introduced by Jack LeVore. He !

It was noticed that, at the opening of the legislative session on Monday, Senator, or Assessor, Deffenbaeh was conspicuous by his absence when the members of the upper house were sworn In. but the real reason for Ills absence did not develop until this morning, when It became known that the senator, or assessor, will not cease to be the latter until next lUonday, whole family ranging from father down to baby. A rial good ventriloquist Is always appreciated, and judging from the applause last night this act was a big hit. The Empresscope completes this week's hill. owing to delayed trains the Hall it O'Brien Eccentric Comedians act did not arrive in time for last night's per formance, but they ares here now and will make ilie headline act for the bal ance of the week.

The reason for this condition of affairs Is said to be because of the failure, for some cause or other, of the county com missioners of Bonner county io accept Defenbach's resignation as a county official. Under the law Defenbach is not per mitted to hold two such positions at one and the same time, and since lie cannot quit his Bonner county Job un til bis term expires on Monday, he cannot take his seat as a full-fledged state senator until them. When seen this morning the senator, or assessor, declared, since no matters requiring his vote arc likely to conic before the senate until such time as lie can get rid ot the asscssorshlp, he will not he sworn In until next Monday, lie declares that in the event of some im portant question arising in which his vole might be the deciding factor, he will cast his vote as senator anil take chances on the legality of the act. in the meanwhile both Defenbach and his friends are wondering as to the correct title by which ho should be ud ilressed.

Contest Editor, Capital News: Dear sir: Received your sample copy and a in very much interested in the j'Booklovers* Contest. 1 am sending you chuck for $3.35, and please send me the j complete outfit. As I have not read | anything on the contest except what is! in the one paper you sent me, I would I appreciate any pointers you can give 1 me to make the getting of right an swers easier. 'Yours truly, J. L. B. Our story on the subject published Dec. 23, covers what you want, so well that we reproduce it for your benefit, as well as any others who desire *o enter this delightful contest, while they still have plenty of time to get the correct answers. The interest in the Booklovers' Con test is so great since our Answer Book was placed on sah' that the Contest Editor and the cashier of the Capital N. ws have barely time to eat. But we must « at, and. even while doing it, wc hear tlie Booklovers* Contest and the j various pictures discussed. On Sat- ! unlay evening two young men sat at the table next to the Contest Editor in the dining-room, and had an Answer Book and a Catalog and the 36 pietuhes that go with tlie Answer Book, and dis cussed the contest in an interesting manner, so interesting to us that we give you the words used by the owner of the Answer Book and the Catalog. "Here Tom is the most interesting game I ever saw conducted by a news paper, and was surprised to notice, in looking over the Capital News last evening, that they are conducting one in the true metropolitan style. You know my home is in Ban Francisco, and the "Call" there conducted one that I became very much interest de in. Of course I only won one the smaller prize*, but that was be cause I was not at home enough to give the proper time to solving the answers, and made a mistake in holding down to one or two answers on most of the pictures. Now, you kpow my sister is ; j | I 1 j ! living here here, and her husband !s in business here, so I thought I would buy her the Answer Book and the Catalog« ami explain to her how to study out the pictures. She is bright and I fesl sure she will go in to it to win one of the prizes. Now let me illustrate to you how a wise young man like you know 1 am would look at picture No. i>l for possible titles. You see they are sure enough Girls or Young Women. Well, let us turn to the G's in the Cata log, and we find first thing the title "Girls," by Clyde Fitch, and here is "Glinjpses of Girlhood," "Girls of a Feather." Now, there are four of them. Let us see what the F's say. Here is "Four Bisters," "Four Peas In a Pod.". But wait, this Contest Editor might have been thinking of women, and we'U see what the W page tells us. "Oh yes, here is "Womankind" and "Women as They Are." But wait a minute, he might have been thinking of just young folks, and we will see what the Y's tell us. Well, the only thing here is "The Young in Heart" and "The Younger Set." Just then the bellboy paged us to answer some questions propounded by an enthusiastic Booklover on the phone,' As we were through eating, we did not get back to the dining-room to hear any of the other pictures discussed by this up-to-date young traveler. But Ills talk brought out strongly tho points we have been trying to explain to you all through this Contest, and that is the value of the Catalog and your* rights to extra answers. And now that we have the Answer Book for your convenience, it is easy to exer cise your right to as many extra an swer?? ns you think you will need. Where you are sure of the right answer use only that one, but, when in doubt« give yourself the benefit of the doubt by submitting more than one answer to that picture. And that Answer Book is going so fast that wu are sorry we placed the order for them so low. But we cannot get any more now in time to do any good in inis contest, so, if you did not get yours, fill in the coupon today, or cull at the office for one. Remember there are $1500 worth of Prizes. $500 of that in Gold. ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS. A. c„ Andoon: The title "Caste" is correct according to our Catalog. J.
