The Daily Mining Record, published at Denver, recently exposed an Idaho miuiug fake, which, however, still cou tiuues to operate aud deceive the east ern investor. In a later issue, the Record says: The unearthing of the fake mining camp of "Hailis" in Idaho—a service performed for the miuing interests of that state by the Record two weeks ago —has attracted a great deal of atten tion iu the northwest. The Spokane Chronicle, for example, announces that it has searched that town for facts concerning "Hailis," but it has beeu unable to locate it. The editor of the Thunder Mountain News has advised us that there is uo such town iu Idaho, and he ought to know, because the "Hailis Weekly Messenger"—the most interesting fake newspaper we have ever seeu—pretends that the imaginary town of "Hailis" belongs to that region. The Record took a little secret de light two weeks ago in throwing just the shadow of a doubt over the exist ence of such a town as "Hailis, cause it wauted some of its contem poraries to go on a still hunt for the town. The fact that they have done so and learned that the name "Hailis" be was invented by a Boston mining stock swindler makes the facts in this as tounding case all the more impressive for them. The publisher of a legiti mate mining camp newspaper is not apt to regard as a joke the invention of a camp name to be used as the cover for a fake mining stock dodger. The Record asked the Inter Trust Security compauy, of Boston, to tell what it ki.ew about the fake camp of "Hailis," and the so-called "Weekly Messenger," "the only paper on the Salmon river," which has been repre sented as the democratic organ of the fake town. Thus far that onttit has not replied. Inasmuch as the stocks floated by the Inter Trust Security compauy and its officers, appear to have derived the ou y benefit possible from the fake "Weekly Messenger," the Record expresses its sentiments concerning the origin of the swindle by branding a batch of these stocks as fakes. They will henceforth be carried in the list of "iusipids," properly class ilied. 1 he said companies are: The Liberty Bell Gold Mining com pauy. The Fair Gold Mines compauy. The Investors Gold Mines compauy. The Victoria Gold Mines compauy. The American Gold Mines compauy. There is oue phase of this iucident that the Record had not uoticea before —namely, the fact that a weekly news paper known as the Silver Messenger is published at Cballis, Idaho. We have formerly said that the fake town of "Hailis" which we desiied to have located was not to be confused with the name Cballis, because the fake newspaper bearing the name "Weekly Messenger" repeats the name ".lallis" so often in its news and advertising columns that it is impossible to doubt the dishonest inteLtiou of its publish er—whoever and wherever the latter may be But the discovery that the name of But the discovery that the name of Challis has been imitated, also the name of the Challis Silver Messenger, leads to the further discovery that cer tain of the advertisemeuts.iu the col umns of the "Hailis" paper have beeu borrowed from the Challis publication, the letter "C" being scratched off in every case where the name of the town is used. Thus ends the story of the fake min ing camp in Idaho, the town of "Hai lis," the thriving metropolis without a posiofflce. The sequel will appear when the postal inspectors of Boston are heard from.
