NO CHANCE NOW. The fact that curren! appropriations are definitely fixed and huvo a rela tlon to the established tax levies tor educational purposes makes it impos sible to effect immediate increases without the creation of deficiencies.

"We found the ore where »e expect ed to," said James P. McCarthy, pres ident. "It lies in a body of about the same width as on the 1000-foot level and contains about the same values. It was struck two days ngo." In a general way this ore body Is five to six feet wide on levels above, although much wider in places. It contains ore of both milling and ship Ping grades.

The property was worked under a lease and bond for a white by Salt Lake people who mined and shipped several thousand dollars worth of the ore. After the war, the market price drop ped and the mining slopped, but Mr. Roberts says all indications go to show (here Is an unlimited amount of ore, whlrh is very high grade.

S. The campaign for a 2-eent and 15 cent coin Inaugurated by the National association of the motion picture In dustry has resulted in the Introduction of twa bins In congress tills week by Congressman Daniel F. Minaha of New Jersey, a member of the house com mittee on coins, weights and measures. Since the enactment of the revenue bill on admissions to theaters the ne cessity for making change at the box office has occasioned on appreciable delay In disposing of the line of ticket purchasers, and some of the smaller motion picture theaters were compelled to raise their price of admission so as to take in the tax and thus do away with the muklng of change as nearly as possible. Other trade Industries which will be greatly benefited by the enactment of these bills will be newspapers, maga zines and periodicals, telephone and telegraph companies, soda fountains and candy stores, railroads and other transportation lines. Newspaper publishers want a $-cent coin because 2 cents Is now the stand ard price for daily papers. Motion pic ture theater men want a 15-cent coin because 15 cents is rapidly becoming the standard price for picture show ad missions. With these two great me diums of publicity In favor of these, measures it Is only natural to expect that their Joint agitation for the bills before congress will bring forth results. The 2-cent bronze coin which was authorized by an net of congress April 22, 1864, was discontinued February 12. 1872.

If thero was ever need for a 2-centi piece it Is now. There 1 b a noticeable shortage of small silver coins every-: where today and It Is believed that In I view of the public, demands for this nfew coinage, coupled with the fact that i the film Industry and the newspapers are working Jointly for the same that the director of the mint, Roy Balter, will give his approval to the measure. The number of coins minted for do mestic circulation last year was 600, 725,028, valued at $35,638,903.30. Tile highest previous record was In 1907, when 218,505,563 pieces were struck. The public will be greatly benefited by having a 15-cent coin between the dime und the quarter. The 15,000,000 people who dally patronize the 10.000 motion picture theaters In the United Stales will be greatly convenlenced by the Issuing of stich a coin. It would facilitate the handling of these millions of motion picture pat rons who are put to a great annoyance and Inconvenience in crowding theater lobbies while waiting for change. Mo tion picture theater patrons are often forced to watt In line on the sidewalk during Inclement weather, owing to de lays In making change at the box office, a condition which has grown much worse since the termination of the war, due to the return of tho soldiers and civilians and the constantly Increasing popularity of the motion picture thea ter. _;_ Twin Falls: J.
