PAGE TWO THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH. r - "" v and OUR MINERAL WEALTH Official Taper of Mohave County Issued Weekly by the MOHAVE, PRINTING AND PUBLISHING COMPANY. Entered as second-class matter at the postofflce at Kingman, Mohave County, Arizona, under Act of Congress of Mar. 1, 1879. W. 0. DAMON Editor and Manager AMBON H. SMITH Mining Editor Subscription rates $3 per year, payable In advance. RESTRICTIONS OF IMMIGRATION T HE immigration question should be taken up and considered by Congress at once. v We have had but little immigration during the four years of ' war. Now with conditions altered and peace at hand it is not un reasonable to suppose that after a few months immigration might begin to flow into its old channels. Nearly four millions of our own men are in process of receiving honorable discharge from the army and navy, and will have to be re-absorbed into the civilian life of the country. Just how the re adjustment of business may progress or how much unemployment there may necessarily be no one yet can tell. t We may not at once have jobs for all our own men fhey have been our defense and in turn are entitled to our protection. ' A restriction of general immigration for some time to come can harm no one, and ihay be of the greatest value to our young men. As soon as reconstruction has progressed far enough so that con ditions can be foreseen, it will be an easy matter to let down the bars. The time to attend to this limiting of immigration is the present. Just now no shipping can be spared for the use of immigrants, and befor this condition ends proper legislation should be provided. Our country has always been the refuge of al nations. It will be so more truly again after a temporary restriction to meet conditions.

OUR WELCOME TRANSPORTS for overseas are entering our seaports and lying at their docks, and every day disembarking a crowd of our boys in khaki. These young men will soon be at their homes, and the question is, how shall we welcome them? With bands and parades and meeting at the town hall, if you will. These demonstrations of welcome are proper and fitting. But what our young, men will presently need is employment. Every man's' old job should be open to him wherever possible. But as the regiments pour back, there may be more work still needed to fill the needs of the men. Each village and town and city should take stock of its re quirements, both immediate and potential, and use every means of instituting them at once. If a school house or an engine house or any public building is needed, now is the time to inaugurate it. The good roads question is always with us. Manufacturing of some local raw material into a (finished product may possibly be undertaken. Initiative in these directions will be he truest welcome to our men. When He Comes Home We know not-when he's comin', But when his steps draw nigh He'll know the love that let him go Grew greater since "boodbye !" For we kept a place of light for him Beneath a darkened sky. We know not how we'll greet him (The heart we can't command!) How speak the mighty love of home! But he will understand!) When home goes out to meet him And takes him by the hand. ODDITIES IN SCIENCE Misery is upon the war-torn world as it never was ,'liefore. The dates for relief are February 10-17. THE NEW BIG IDEA I is within the memory of middle-aged men that our great financial and industrial developments depended upon fpreign capital, and "English syndicates," and "German syndicates" ' were common enough throughout the United States. But all that is changed, and this country has loaned the governments with which it has been associated in the war, somewhere around eight billion dollars. Mr. Frank A. Vanderlip,, the New York financier, esti mates that these loans, with the increase of foreign bank credits, makes a total change in the international credit situation measured by about $12,500,000,000. .Mr. Vanderlip declares that the ques tions confronting the country at the present time, calls for well considered opinions, "for we cannot expect to have the government have sounder judgment than the sum total of public opinion." He offers this healthy advice: "Let us continue to be altruistic. If we render to the world a great service we can rest easy about our reward. We have a great opportunity. Let us see what we can make of this opportunity, not what we can make out of it." FOR the convenience of children in motion picture theaters a chair has been patented with a seat that can be raised several inches. , IN Argentina a rabbit cannery has been established in the hope of rid ding some sections of the country of a pest in a profitable way. ACCORDING to a British scientist, men go to sleep more quickly than women, but sleep less soundly and, if in normal health, not so long. UNDER the seat of a new study cnair is a drawer for books and papers, while a shelf for writing can be swung across the arms from one side. i MAIL between cities 800 miles apart . on a river in Colombia is being car ried by a light-draft high-speed boat driven by aerial propellers.

ACCORDING to an English scien tist's theory, if the radium in the interior of the earth equals in quality that in the surface rocks, the world will grow hotter in time instead of colder. ANNOUNCEMENT An evangelistic campaign, in which prophecies relating to present day events will be explained and the fundamental principles of Christianity made prominent, will be held by Evangelist I. Parry Dillon of California in Chamber of C ommerce hall at Chloride, beginning February 16th and continuing every night except Saturday night for the following five or six weeks. Evangelist Dillon has devoted many years to a close study of the Prophecies, and in connection with the campaign he will show the meaning of the social, political, religious, and financial unrest in the world from a Biblical standpoint. In every discourse the Bible will, be held up as the revelation of the will of God to mankind, the way of eternal life, the foundation of saving faith, and the only basis of Christian truth. No sensational appeals will be made to the emotions, and no death-bed stories told, but only facts bearing on the truths given in the sacred Scriptures will be presented. Mr. Dillon will include in his program of lectures, on the Sanctuary question; the important study of man's sin and Saviour; the coming of Christ and what it means to a sin-sad world; also on health and temperance. . The lectures on the Prophecies will be of particular interest, and the important truths found in the books of Daniel and the Revelation will be explained. Mr. Dillon hopes to make these studies of special educational value to the Bible students, and at the same time convince those who may be in doubt of the troth of the Bible. NearTy all the1 lectures will be illustrated, and the public is cordially invited to attend. His subject for next Thursday night will be "The Crash of Empires." The Evangelist will lay special stress on what the prophet of old saw while wrapped in Holy vision concern ing the rise, and fall of nations from the days when Babylon ruled the world down to the sitting-up of Christ's eternal Kingdom as outlined in the prophecy. ft ,Langs Theatre Program for Week Ending Feb, 2ist. i!- SS-S; SATUBDAT, PEB.

SPEAKER CHAMP CLARK says "It goes without saying that there must and will be another big bond issue. Having put our hands to the plow wc must not look back. We cannot afford to. Because while the world-war is really over, it is not technically ended until President issues a proclamation to that effect. We still have a huge army overseas and while it should be brought home as soon as ships can bring our soldiers back, until they get back, they must be fed and clothed and otherwise cared for. It would be an everlasting shame not to do that. So people should subscribe for the impending loan and purchase War Savings Stamps as readily and liberally as they subscribed for the past loans. It's for the support of our soldiers, and nothing is too good for them." OPTOMISTIC AS TO FUTURE IN retiring as president of American Smelting & Refining' Co., Daniel Guggenheim said: "As to the immediate future, because of problems of reconstruction confronting the whole world, some difficult months may be expected, but I am a great optimist as to the future,- based upon the enormous demand that must be made for raw materials. These demands will be felt as soon as the various business interests realize that pfices and supplies are at a low ebb." The Very Best in MEATS WEDNESDAY, PEB. 19 JACK PICKFORD "SANDY Alio U. S.
