I Lowndes Oddie, the new Republican

Oddie was shunted westward after
being born at Brooklyn. N. Y., Octo-

boyhood, at East O ranee. N. J. He
roughed It on a ranch in' Nebraska
from IB to -19 and then sought a bus
iness career in New "Fork City. In
1888 he went to Nevada to identify
Jiimself with the extensive Stokes
(mining1 interests there, hut he worked
f himself out of a iob by exposing- lr-f-reg-ularities
Ui connection with them,
taod he them hit the trail into an al
Jmost inaccessible, sparsely inhabited,
(mountainous region of the southern
ipart of rb State.

vNye Couatty, in the region, of old Be!
iinoiyt, tihe former grandeur of iwhlch
-bad departed, and took up mining
ron his own account. At that tirne.
Hn 1899, the-entire population of the
I county did not ewed 200 souls, most
tot whom were engaged in raising
livestock. He took up some claims
nd sank a shaft, working alone, with
I such tools as he could gather. The
Vshaft was an incline, 70 feat deep,

Oddie succeeded him -a. rancher in
'a small way, and a prospector of the
i'old school with that gift that made
ithe old-timers famous in itheir day.
One day Butler handed Oddie sev
feral samples from a prospect he had

Stian looked good ,and that if the
fsaxnples ran anything- at all it would
'be, worth explaining. Butler had

Butiler. in the meantime, had gone
to his ranch. Oddio sent him the as
say certificate and urged him to
make haste to Belmont and go with
Oddie to the scene and make his lo
cations. Butler's rancn was on a
Star Route post offioe. hnt he made
infrequent trips to ' the mail box
down on the road. The days rolled
.by and merged into weeks, with no
reply. Oddie greatly reared that
some wanderlnar prospector would
find the led and locate It, while
waiting to hear from Butler. . Fi
nally Hutler. unexcited by the as
says, arrived with his wife in Bel
mont and ithe two slipped away with
camp equipment loaded upon a rick
ety wagon In which they made their
(0-mile journey. On Butler's return
he took Wilse Brougher into the
partnership also. The three men
then Started for the scene of the dis-i
covery where they put xrp their claim
monuments and started to work. It
was In November, the weather cold
and blustery, their shelter the sky.
They had no tent at the start, no
stove and nothing but scrubby sage
brush for fuel . There was no food
for the horses, which were turned
out to rustle the dry bunch grass
and frequently strayed away. Water
had to be hauled a distance of five
miles. Oddie being the youngest of
the trio fell heir to the extra jobs of
ranging- the horses, hauling water
and gathering fuel, besides doing- the
heavy work of mining-; The outcrop
yielded two tons of ore and then
"pinched" out. The men then start
ed to level off a place for a dindlass
and in this work uncovered Ithe top
of the Mizpah led pre.
Initial Capital was $25.
They hauled the ore first extract
ed, one ton at a time, to Belmont, a
long two-days 'trip .from where it
was sent 90 miles by wagon to Aus
tin, thence iby rail to a smelter on
the Paciflce Coast. It took six weeks
to get returns, but the check that
came for $600 Cheered them in their
task and suprlied the funds- for
"grub." Their tater successes never
produced a sum that looked aulte as
big as that $600, which came on a.
stormy day to their dingy camp, on
a bleak hillside in a lonelv corner of
the world. Xt was almost dusk of a
winter day when Oddie reached camp
with the money, blue wSth cold but
warmed within by visions of the fu
ture. DroDPinsr the reins to the
erround, he let the tired horses
standing and imparted the good news
to his partners.
The combined money investment
of these three men In this enterprise
was $25. This is proba.bly the world's
record of bie returns from small in
vestments. What followed is history. In the
mysterious way that news spreads of
a new strike in the desert reaohes,
it quickly became known tthat a
great discoverv had been made in
Nevada. From everywhere came
hardy spirits, eoverinsr the hillside
with flapping tents and filling the
air with the roar of dvnamite from
early morn until darkness. Leases
were let over a hundred of llhem
ore teams came from mysterious
sources, and the wealth of the Miz
pah was sacked and sent to the
smelters. Oddie was made business
manager and kept the books for a

wondierflly sagacious -prospector with
an almost uncanny instmct for fnd
insr ore. He had noticed from afar
indications of mineral on this range
of hills years before and went there
with the purpose of prospecting- the
quality win a very aetimte and fixed
objnct In view.
Greatest Boom Since Oomstocfe.
Oddie was opposed to selling the
mine, which had attained bonanza
proportions, but acquiesced in the
wishes of his partners. He then
turned his attention to the develop
ment of the Belmont, an adjoining
property, but remained as manager
for the Tonopah Mining Company,
the corporation to which the Mizpah
was sold. H. C (Cal) Brougher and
Oddie owned most of the locations
that finally were taken over by the
Tonopah Belmont Derolopment &
alining Company, which Oddie financ
ed in Philadelphia, the home of the
new owners of the Mizpah mine. A
great fault crosses the mountain be
tween the two mines and some engi
neers expressed the, belief that it
"cut off" the ore. The Belmont sub
sequently became the largest mine of
the district.
Tonopah gave birth to the greatest
mining 'boom Nevada has had since
the glorious days of the Comstock
and has already .produced more than
a hundred million dollars. From the'
new Eldorado prospectors worked out
in . every direction. Rich gold ore
was found 25 miles to the south and
GoMfleJd was given to the mining
world with its rich treasure trove.
Then came Hanna-pah, Silver Bow,
"Reveille, Manhattan and a score of
new camps. Oddie remained for.nve
years as manager of the Tonopah
Mining and the Belmont Develop
ment and operated in Goldfieki and
other camps where he had secured
interests. He bought the Pine Creek
ranch and introduced into Southern
Nevada the first herd of white faced
Hereford cattle. He ihas made a
close study of agricultural and live
stock matters.
In 1910 he was nominated for gov
ernor on the Republican ticket and
elected, serving four years. This was
about the stiffest fight he ever had
and .was waged under difficulties that
would have discouraged most men
from making- the race. To begin
with, he was pitted against an ex
perienced and popular politician, in
a state - :.at was normally Demo
cratic Financial reverses had prac
tically swept away his fortune. Un
skilled in politics and with a poor
organization, he went out and ap
pealed to the voters and won.
A Battler from Youth.
There followed some lean years in
Nevada. The stock boom which
swept the country from the Atlantic
to the Pacific and from Canada to
Mexico had gone its way. The rich
treasures of Goldfield were pretty
well worked out after producing
over a hundred million dollars. The
price of silver was low and Tonopah
and other silver camps suffered in
consequence. But Oddie kept peg
ging away prospecting and -developing
prospects, his heart true to min
ing, and he now feels, that his op
timism is soon to toe rewarded.
Probably the "most striking feature
of Oddie's life has been the struggle
against odds in he big undertakings.
He studied law in New Tork at night
for three years, while working as a
clerk for $1 a week, battling sleep in
the pursuit of knowledge.- He re
ceived his degree and was admitted
to the New York Bar. His first ex
perience in big business there brough
him into conflict wnth powerim real

TWO MILLION FEMALE
RPLUS, SAYS NORTHGLIFFE
New York, ; Aug. 6 Must two mil
lion women remain forever stogie?
In England today there is that
number of "superfluous" women, the
dearth of men occasioned, of course,
by the great war.
What is the best answer to Eng
land's woman problem then?
Lord Northclifte, famous British
publisher, brings up the subject
when a girl -viter visits ' him in
search of an idea for a syndicate
story.
"Tell your chief to find out whafs
to be done with two million superflu
ous women we now have in England,"
he replias without an instant's hesita
tion. "We have that many more women
than men," he continues. "That
should interest everybody. I'd like
to have such a story myself."
Far be it from - us to insist that
young English ladies emigrate here
and marry our extra male population,
although there Is a sufficient number
of men to provide husbands for all
the women in this country and for the
"superfluous" British girls, too.
Census statistics for 1920 show
there are now 107 men for every 100
women in the United States.
Latest available figures on popula
tion announce a surplus of 2,692,
288 males over females and a sur
plus of males, ' over twenty-one, to
exceed by 2,443,3-9'7 the number of
females over the same age.
Some of Solutions Offered.
But there are various solutions of
fered ns for England's problem by
representative American women:
Emigration to countries where men
are still at large. t
Women making of themselves such
excellent matrimonial material as to
lure men from other countries.
Vicariously satisfying the maternal
instinct by caring for the youth of
the country, sons and daughters of
women who have found husbands.
And the belief that there is a mate
for every one and not finding him
woman is better off alone!
Hailing the surplus of feminity in
England as a great stronghold for
the nation, Mrs. Olive Stott Gabriel,
lawyer, does riot think England has a
serious problem in this predomin
ance of women.
'Big Asset, Says Mrs. Gabriel.
Two million women in any coun
try are an asset, not a liability," as
serts Mrs. Gabriel.
'Women, are the equals of men in
any capacity, politically, economical
ly and constructively I refer to the
re-organization of any country after
a war.
The trouble with the majority of
men is that they look upon women
not as human, beings, but as inferior
bits of creation by means of which
they may exploit themseves."
"But what of the human side of
the problem, the almost absolute cer
tainty that these women can never
marry?" Mrs. Gabriel was asked.
"That's what I mean," she replied.
,rffin think of women only as hus
band-hunters. Men trouble much
more about what women want than
women do.
"Under modern conditions I think
women marry to have the right sort
of children, to bring them up with the
best ideals.
Women don't wed for meal tickets
any more. Few women wish to
marry unless they meet the right
man. Yes, I am a great believer in
the theory of getting the Tight
one.'
"I "believe there is a true mate ror
every one of us, and women nowadays
want him cr don't want to get mar
ried at all." . .
Mrs. Raymond Brown's Opinion.
Mrs. Raymond Brown, prominent
suffragette and managing director of
the Woman Citizen, a suffrage organ,
does not think the "eternal ma
ternal" should be wasted
Two million extra women! Mrs.
Brown exclaimed. "England is rich
indeed. . ...
"Women, married or not, have the
mother instinct.
if th mntorfnal duality is not ex
pended on her own children, woman
may help her country an me mi
"Economically, woman can earn her
own living. She always has, in some
way or other.
"I think the two mUlion women
could help the children of England.
We can never have too much of the
mother instinct, whether it is given
to the family or to the country:
Emigration to England's wide do
minions mught solve the problem.
Miss Helen P. McCormick, assistant
district attorney of Kings county,
holds this opinion. . .
Miss McCormick for Emigration.
"The first aspect of the question at
present is the economic phase of it.
After all, if women are provided
means of support, the problem is not
so dangerous.
"The human side is not pre-eminent
at -nroooTit it seems to me .
"If women re well-provided for
economically men could be easily in
duced tn yn tr, Kngland and take
them fnr -m-i-wAr-
'"With all England's dominions, her
outlying provinces, she is not devoid
of destinations to which she may
send, if they wish o go, her single
women.
"Dpt a commission be appointed.
Let England aid her superfluous wom
en to go to Canada, Australia and
New Zealand.
"Where there are enough men for
the women, nature will take care of
the human side of the problem.
"Tti tho fainff iui ounufnna HiMit
'Britain, surely, there are lonely, help
less men who would welcome- wives.
It is also cheaper to support a wife
than to hire a housekeeper.
mere would be Little, 'overhead'
expense connected with the expedition.
Ihe Government should give ade
quate attention to the problem of its
women.
""England must never forzet what
her women did in the great war.
Sufficient thought should be given to
these superfluous women.
"Woman's value is realized now as
never before. If a country denies
ita women today it runs the risk of
being ungrateful."
Miss Scbeidernmnn's Question.
But what Miss Rose Seheidermann
head of the Women's Trade Union
Deague, wanta:to know is:
"Why does England .differentiate
Women from men? Why ask what
to do with two million women any
more than what to do with two mil
lion extra men? Would a country
worry about its extra men? ' No!
Then why worry about the women?
Let the thing adjust itself."
A hard situation, nevertheless, hard
for the women themselves. - Every
woman likeS to believe that home,
husband and children will be her lot
some time in life and likewise that,
should she elect to live a life other
than the domestic one she "could
have married if she wanted to."
Between the woman, who must b
single and the one who chooses to b
single there is a world of difference.
Obviously this great number of
women must be single not from
choice, but from necessity, since poly
gamy is a habit not in good standing
in civilized countries today.
Avoid that danger, Clothe Baby in Vanta garments.
Some mother, who had just found out that what
made Baby cry so was an unruly safety-pin, MUST have ,
devised the first Vanta garment.
Eight then, she determined that never again would
she let a pin cause pain to her baby ! '
So she set at work and the final result was the Vanta
garment of today: something in which and on which there
is neither a pm nor a button I
Every Vanta garment is fastened by tapes; smooth
strong tapes that do not twist and do not ravel. They
hold each little article of dress firmly in place. Of equal
valuethey give Baby freedom and allow little muscles
free play and exercise, help Baby to grow up with strong
square shoulders, don't squeeze Baby around the waist.
Hospitals and nurses approve Vanta garments.
Mother will approve them just as quick, once she sees
them.

hold various other exhibits, contains
more than 660,000 square feet of
space.
Machinery ranging from delicate"
instruments, which record the thou
sandth of a degree change in heat
and which measure the varying
weights of small sheets of paper to
heavy shears that cut steel bars 5 x
6 inches in thickness, and ten-ton
caterpillar tractors will be on display
under one roof.
Great cranes, strong enough to
move a fair sized mountain, will be
a feature of this all American exhi
bition which will rival in size the
famous exhibits of the Crystal Palace
in London and the historic Centennial
in Paris of three decades ago.
Some idea of the size of the Central
Mercantile Building at Sixth avenue,
running from 18 th to 19 th streets.
can be gathered from the fact that it
would easily park rourteen Flatiron
buildings. The building Is large
enough to accomodate many exhib
its. Already within its walls are
exhibits of milk pastuerizing and ice
cream machinery and a large display
of oil and gas engines. The floor
area is 160,000 square feet longer
than the Woolworth building.
The tallest building in the world,
Eiffel Tower in Paris, has a floor
space of 38,000 square feet, less thin
one-half the area of a single floor in
this structure.
Xi. R. Duffleld, president of the
Exhibition Company which is behind

tion to the fact that New York sells
more machinery than the combined
markets of Europe.
AMERICA IN POSITION
TO SOLVE WORLD'S ILLS
Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 6 Because
it is only from profit on production
that the' immense war debt can be
paid production costs will remain
high.
This Is the belief expressed -by Col
vin B- Brown, Washington, head of
the .Department of Organization,
United States Chamber of Commerce,
in an address to a local audience.
"If the selling price' sinks below the
cost of production ho power on earth
can hold it there, and after this period
of reconstructon is passed we will go
back on a sound basis, for the world
needs our goods," said Mr. Brown.
"Not a section of the country is
selling up to its ability to produce,"
he declared, statlnn that there is no
overproduction now beeause there is
Insufficient food to feed the world un
til the next harvest, nor enough cloth
ing to garb the world properly.
Asserting that this nation is in a po
sition such as no other country ever
has enjoyed for re-establishing the
world's credit, he advocated extension
of credit to European countries. .
