UP EARLY IN SPRING ; The construction of the new Grand View Mining company mill in the . Silver City district, a mile north of Rapid Creek, is progressing satisfactorily. A large amount of construction material has been unloaded at Silver City and is being hauled to the mill site. The plant, which will have a capacity of about fifty tons, will be ready for operation early next spring. It is designed to use a pro- , cess perfected at the Rapid City state school of mines, whereby the employment of a floatation system successfully extracts the gold, silver, lead and antimony from an antimony ore, which heretofore has been found difficult of treatment, by any eco nomical means. Throughout ' the district there is much more activity than there has been' in years and a number of new prospects have been opened up and old ones further developed. There is talk of remodeling the old High-, land mill, a ten stamp plant, which will be run on free milling gold ore taken from ground owned by Tom Gorman and others. ' GREATER NEED FOR GOLD The need for a greater gold supply has been accentuated by the Euro- ' pean war. Not long ago the British government was found attempting to secuure gold bullion from mines and mills In the United States, offering to pay a. premium thereon. The advisability of additional government ac-, tivity in stimulating the exploration for and production of gold In the United States has been suggested, and we understand the question of the diminishing gold supply is to be considered at the Phoenix session of the mining congress (to be held during the week of Dec. 7. It would seem that the epoch of increasing gold production in the world and the coincident period of rising prices for commodities has about run its course. Already the world's annual yield has passed its maximum record. We do not believe it is too much to declare that the outbreak of the great world war is not only a signal for greater effort in the discovery and recovery of gold, but one of the results of the diminishing supply. The European war is the climax of a tremendous speculative and constructive movement throughout the world, of which the development in the sphere of gold production and its bearing upon commerce end finance ' Is a very important Incident. ' And, while touching upon this subject, we may as well reiterate that the world will not be able to bear up under the strain of so much havoc without a greater supply of basic money, if the conflict is of long duration. For this reason the demand for more gold is likely to express Itself in a demand for silver in the monetary capacity. Senator Thomas J. Walsh of Mon-. tana has recently addressed the United States senate upon the-subject of diminishing gold supply, and the Inference from his remarks is the need 'Of greater government attention to the matter of encouraging production We feel bound to express our surprise ihat Senator Walsh has any comprehension of the question at Issue. Any western man who can advocate the leasing of the public lands by the federal government, knowing full well that the tendency of his argument Is to bring gold-bearing areas within the restrictive influence of such legislation, is hardly suited to speak upon the subject of encouragement to mining. No greater disaster can befall the West and the United States as a whole than- the enact ment of laws for the leasing of the public domain. If this system Bhall fall upon the metal mining regions, the search for gold in the West will cease altogether. Mining Record. EFFECT ON MINERALS While the immediate effect of the war in Europe has been disastrous generally to the mining industries of the United States, the view is largely entertained that the depression will be but temporary and that it will not be necessary to wait for the war to be over in order to place the mining industry on its feet again, says the Leadville Herald Democrat. The mining industries at present are suffering more than their share of the depression occasioned by the war, and it will be some time yet before conditions can be so re-adjusted as to es tablish a stable and steady market for copper and other mining products in this country. ' In a recent bulletin the United States Geological survey says that probably on nation in the world so closely approximates absolute independence in mineral resource as does the United States. In a recent speech. Secretary of the Interior Lane said that when American business men have found the domestic supply and begun its use they will not return to the foreign supply, and thereafter good or bad times, in the United States will no longer be dependent upon the foreign markets. This is encouraging, of course; nevertheless those engaged in the metal Industry are fully realizing that the building up of a sufficient domestic market is by no means an easy task. SOME EARLY BLACK HILLS INVADERS Sioux City Journal, Oct. 13, 1874: H. C. Draper yesterday received a letter from his old partner, N. Johnson, mailed at Laramie, stating that the party with which Johnson left Sioux Cfity, arrived in the Black Hills safe and sound and had taken about five miles of claims. They encountered no Indians On the march, nor had they seen any to speak of since leaving here. 'The letter stated that parties were constantly arriving in the Black Hills, but does not say whether gold was found by the party in paying quantities. AMONG THOSE FROM BLACK HILLS TOWNS Among those who came to Dead-wood to attend the Jane Addams lecture last night and participate in the State Federation meeting, are: Rapid City Mrs. James Halley, Mrs. Thomas Sweeney, Mrs. Buell, Mrs. McGee, Miss Rose Bower, Mrs. R.

NEWS AND VD3WS OF EUROPEAN WAR (Continued from Page One.) stantly increasing editorial notes the news of the day of " both sides. Such glaring contradictions have never been run off the press anywhere. Alt the head of the column the English and French official communiques appear; and further down those of Von Stein, quartermaster general of the German army. The English and French dispatches insist that the al lied troops have taken such and such a place, while the German dispatches, always brief, Imply by their contents that such is not the case. The Dutch editor takes the official news as he gets it and permits the public to judge just who is the greatest "press agent." With press bureau dispatches' and other communications he deals differently. In most cases he appends a note to the effect that the item is evidently a gross exaggeration, or that it is colored to suit the intereats of the country or origin. The editor, in other words warns the public agaiust the acceptance of what he presents not as fact, but as news paper matter that has reached him. .
