10 BAD ROAD HALT MINE OPERATIONS Dominican Republic's Valuable Deposits Await Improvement of Country's Highways — Women \Vork Placer Claims and Secure Several Ouncesoi Gold Per Week Having received numerous inquiries regarding mining and^minerals in the Dominican republic. Consul . lialph J. Toften of Puerto Plata has prepared a general outline of the information ob- The most important of the useful minerals that have been found in modern modern times are gold, silver, iron ore, copper ore. lignite, salt and petroleum. Gold is the only mineral that has been work.-d to any extent. In the time of Columbus the Indians paid tribute tribute in Frold, and in the year 1496 the records show the following mines or placer workings: *La Vega, the C-ibao, thb 53an Cristobal and the Buenaventura. Buenaventura. A considerable quantity of gold is at the' present time washed from the sands of the Yaque. Verde. Bao. Jama and Map rivers and their tributaries by the country people with the most primitive apparatus. It is claimed that women often obtain two or three ounces of gold per week in this manner. L.odes and gold bearing quartz are mentioned in some of the old reports, but no record record can be found of any attempt to work these mines systematically. In fact, none of the mining men now in this country claims to have located quartz veins that would pay for the worthing. There are no doubt some gold deposits, deposits, not only in the river beds but also in the hills, that have never been worked, and there is probably considerable considerable gold remaining in the old workings workings that could be saved by modern machinery and dredges. The conditions conditions for working are good, there being abundant water and sufficient fall for drainage in most parts of the gold country. A great drawback is the extreme extreme difficulty encountered in getting machinery to the interior, on account of the entire lack of wagon roads. ALPINE MISADVENTURES COST 84 LIVES IN YEAR /''*-:-% -'->- Foolhardiness of Tourists Is Blamed for Many Casualties From October" 15, 190S, to' the same <lat<> of the present year, the deaths due to misadventure on tlie Alps (Swiss, French and Italian) were no fewrr than S4 — a Jijrure which, to the Lancet, seems to justify the Roman journalist in remarking remarking that what Sir Leslie Stephen called the "playground of Europe" might n»bre fitly_ be .styled its graveyard." graveyard." U"'ae greatest number of casualties casualties befell the Swiss and the Germans; next in order were, the English "speaking "speaking "Alpinisti," Ihert' the French, 'and linally the Italian. . Next to Monte Rosa, the Rangnokulm, Rangnokulm, in the.Valie Vigezzo, seems to have been the deadliest 'lure. On the Swiss side the Jungfrau still maintains her sinister priority in tempting climbers climbers to their doom— six casualties being registered this year to her account. In nearly every ; case, the false" economy which dispenses with an experienced R'Uide is primarily to blame, arid next to that the foolhardihood which attracts attracts the nature student to a rare Mower or mir.eralcgical specimens on the brink of an abyss. . Refuges such as those- in course, of erection by the Padunn Alpine club, on the Venetian ranges, are well inspired, I>ai ticularly when available on the sudden sudden descent of a mist; but nothing can '•xcuse the lack of precaution which l^sv.-s the skilled guide out of account <>i' which neglects the personal equation In the matter of bodily fitness for the rfimb. This latter condition is, as the Lancet and its contemporaries,' Swiss end Italian, have often pointed out. one "of viial importance to the mountain rtfrnber.', particularly when approaching approaching tlie meridian of a life passed In '"Tin years ago it was estimated that while, during the preceding half century, century, tlie British merchant tonnage had almost trebled,' the number of British seamen engaged in the mercantile mercantile marine had decreased by 23 p, r cent and the boys and young men by i,5 per cent. . Jt is understood that a . majority both of the Canadian and American commissioners of the international waterways commission will recommend recommend that a dam be built on tlie Niagara Niagara river, opposite Buffalo and- Fort Erie, for the purpose of raising the level of Lake Erie.
