CHLORIDE MOTEL DAVIS Looking for a pleasant place to stay while in Chloride ? You will find it at the Hotel Davis, opposite the Post Office. Best accomodations. MADAME DAVIS, Prop DELION TIRES AND The Ways and Means Committee of the house vof representatives has been conducting hearings on war and other minerals, products of the United Stat es, and it is the opinion that a tariff of sufficient importance will be im posed to protect them from the en croachment of foreign metals. The first to receive attention was tungsten and manganese. It was shown by the American Mining Congress that the ' miners of the United States could not compete with the pauper labor of the other countries in production of these metals and that a restrictive tariff would be necessary to protect the American product. The hearing was brought about by the introduction of a bill of Congressman Timberlake, of Colorado, for the imposition of a tar iff of $10 per ton on imported tung sten. The witnesses before the com mittee were J. H. Holmes, of Colo rado, a producer of tungsten; Roy Mc Kenna, of the Venadium Alloys com pany; A. H. Riddle, a Umted States engineer, and also acting for the tar iff Commission; George Otis Smith, head of the U. S. Geological Survey, and George H. Bailey, assistant sec retary of the American Mining Con gress. It was shown that California, Colorado -and Nevada are producing sixty per cent of all the tungsten used in the United States, and that by protectingthe industry the production could be largely increased. A discussion of all the metals with their relation to tariff legislation wili be heard during the session of the commission, zinc being one of the most important of the metals to be heard. Manganese is also to be pro tected, if the will of the commission prevails. The great war has helped to open the eyes of the manufactuiers of America to the importance of metals production, and especially the raw ores.
