EDITORIAL COMMENT Congress has passed the Edge export finance bill that amends the federal reserve act which provides for the in corporation of concerns to fin ance the export business of the United States, so that for eign customers who cannot pay cash may buv goods here and the American exporter can get actual cash for his commodities. Tonopah Divide is reported to have ore on every level and is increasing its ore reserves that already have been con servatively estimated at over ten million dollars. So much for the new premium ou sil ver, but there is too much in ducement to melt up silver dollars yet to waste it in de velopment of mines. Our story about deepest wells and mines two weeks ago is now supplemented by a story from England where at Birmingham last month Eric Davis gave particulars of the Moro Velho mine in Brazil which is 6,400 feet ver tically below the surface and 3,650 feet below sea level. The mine is absolutely dry. Re frigeration is necessary by 500 horse power operating com pressor, condensor and evap orator —a plant costing over $200,000. Gold from South Africa sells in London at a premium of 20 per cent. This is a hand some profit to the gold mines of the Rand. Were such an inducement offered to the gold miners of this country it would increase gold production fully one third in a year The pre mium to the Crown Mines company of South Africa now means a gain of nearly $250,- 000 a month on its output and the outlook is that this pre mium will continue for sev eral years. Dr. Campbell was in Congress on Xmas day and reports excel lent cowboy sports and good mav erick horses, broncho busters. Many local cattlemen took part. A swell turkey dinner and dance were largely enjoyed. Secretary Lane “peddles” the following in his annual report which ought to tickle the oil operator: “The oil industry is more distinctly American than any of the great basic industries. It has been the creation o no one class or group, but of many kinds—the hardy, keen eyed prospector with a nose for oil, who spent his months upon the deserts and up in the mountains searching for seepages and tracing them to their source; the rough and two-fisted driller, a man generally of unusual physical strength, who han dled the great tools of his trade; the venturesome wildcatter, part prospec tor, part promoter, part operater, the marine of the industry, soldier and sai lor, too; the geologist, who thru his study of the anatomy of the earthcrust, could map the pools and sands almost as if he saw them; the inventor; the chemist with still and furnace; the gen ius who found that oil would run in a pipe; these and many more, in most of the sciences and nearly all of the crafts, j have created this great American in dustry. If they are permitted they will reveal the world supply of oil; and j upon that supply the industries of our | country will come to be increasingly dependent year by year. The new law imposing a head tax on all live stock im ported into the state for graz ing will be vigorously fought to a finish. A suit to prevent collection of $1 a head for cattle and 50 cents for sheep and goats has already been tiled in the Superior Court of Mohave county. A letter published elsewhere today from the Director of the IT. S. Survey to the edito. of the State Miner says but little if any research re garding Arizona oil possibili are obtainable from that de partment. There are known however, reports of private i experts who have been over the Wickenburg held, which are considered very favorable and it is li that additional information will be obtain able very soon by the de partment which seems vitally interested. The railroads were NOT ! returned to the owners on the Ist of January and with transportation in the hands of President Wilson the} 7 are not likely to be, until condi tions affecting the high cost |of living and supplies are I materially reduced. Mean time politicians will be “nig gering” with a scarecrow for an appropriation to help the j poor, maligned, downtrodden, ; rebating transportation-corn . mercial robbers. ■ *• Silver at $137 an oz. means a profit of 12 cents on every dollar melted into bullion. Anyone who wants to melt his wages down can do so. There are surely many going into the melting business; the more there is melted up the more this country will have to pioduce. A ban will likely occur on Mexican shipments is thev are already stirred up over there by heavy melting of the poor people’s money. All of this ought to inspire a new impetus to opening up of the Monte Cristo and other known silver mines of Wick enburg district. There will soon be another big scramble for the Rich Hill gold diggings. ARIZONA STATE MINER.
