"Follow the trail of the trolley"
is n popular slogan adopted by
realty dealers all over the country.
The Willamette heights were con
sidered too far away for residence
sites a few years at;6 simply be
cause there was no car service
there. The best country develop
ers arc the railroads and electric
Hues. When the United Railways
company eot a franchise for an elec
tric line to Cavalry cemetery and to
the north, speculators began to sit
up and think. Many doubted the
Co.'s intention to extend their line
down the west side of the Willam
ettc to Uiinton, and it was not till
they read the announcement in the
Oregon Journal that the United
Railways had broken ground for
their Uiinton line that they were
convinced that at last the hills to
the north would be skirted by the
trolley. It has just dawned on the
skeptical that at last there is a so
Union to the problem of populating
possibly one of the most beautiful
and picturesque stretches of river
frontage to be found between the
two greatest oceans.
Heretofore people could go to su
mirbau additions to the cast, north
cast and southeast for upwards of
seven miles mid have nice homes
away from the busy center. Hut
the north part of West Portland
never offered inducements to the
home site seeker, coiiscmieutly not
to the speculator or investor and up
till now people could not be induced
to invest on the west side of the
city outside the northern boundary
of the city. The solution of the
problem being now solved by the
new electric line down the I.iiintoti
roitd skirting the verdant, rolling

Goldficld Man Shows Up An
Following is a letter sent to Ev
erybody's Magazine by W. H. Paul
of Gold field, showing the unfair
ness with which mining is treated
by this one eastern magazine in par
ticular, although its methods arc
characteristic of the entire class of
publications to which it belongs.
It should be stated, too, that Ev
erybody's has neither printed Mr.
Paul's letter nor acknowledged its
Goldficld, Nov., Mar. 2, 1908.
New York, N. Y.s
Gentlemen: At the risk of being
an unwelcome inquirer, I want to
ask that you advise your readers
through your "Straight Talk" col
umns the cause of the prejudice
you in common with other maga
zines manifest toward the mining
industry. One would think you
class all mining with Louisiana lot
tery schemes, and fail to realize
that the security back of the paper
currency of our government is the
gold and silver in the vaults at
Washington, and that this gold and
silver was mined, and did not grow
on bushes, nor was it made in one
of the "System's dollar mills," as
Lawson calls it. In the January
number of Munscy's, on page 473,
in n hysterical article evidently in
tended to bolster up the Wall street
chromo market, the editor says
"Hundreds of millions of dollars of
the coplc's money is wasted an
nually in mining and other worth
less stocks, etc." That sounds
much like the clntisc in our Const!
ttitiou which classes women with
patiiKTS and insane persons as hnv
iiig no vote in these United States.
Is it fair to condemn an industry
that annually adds untold millions
of new wealth to the nation because
owing to human cupidity and de
sire to "get rich quick many peo
ple listen to the siren song of some
glib promoter without exercising
the precaution that they would if
they were buying a peck of apples?
I have made several efforts to net
your advertising department to in
sert an advertisement of treasury
stock in an undeveloped mine re
quiring funds for the construction
of n mill in order to treat its ores
more economically on the ground,
and while you refuse to accept the
advertisement, I can point out many
schemes to defraud the unwary, ad
vertised in your classified columns,
nnd which on their face look suspi
cious. The mill hns been com
pleted; is now turning out gold, and
the stockholders will soon receive

the mining industry. The National
Danker is authority for the state
incut that the dividends paid by
gold and silver mines arc greater
than the dividends paid by all the
banks in the United States, and that
the dividends paid by our copper
mines alone are greater than the
dividends paid by all the railroads
of the country. Statistics show
that 53 per cent of all the tonnage
handled by the railroads of the
country is the product of the mines.
1 rue, mucli money is lost by tin
wise investors who blindly put
their money into any inhibit: prono
sitiou because of the desire to spec
ulate, but how will these losses
compare with those in industrial
and railroad stocks, insurance com
panics and banks in late years?
Dun's and Bradstreet's commer
cial agencies arc authority for the
statement that 35 per cent of all le
gitimate miniutr investments fail.
while a much greater percentage of
all commercial investments fail.
Fortunes arc made and lost in
speculation on Wall street without
the addition to or loss of a dollar of
this world's wealth, nnd then I
wonder how the losses sustained by
unwise investors in "fake" mining
stocks compare with the ruin an mi
ally' brought to thousands of homes

The Weber Case.
The courts have found Henry
Weber guilty of embezzlement in
converting to his own use money
paid him supposedly for company
use, and the sentence imposed by
the court was seven years.
The news has gone forth to the
world that Nevada justice is not nu

lic has in this incident assurance
that its money will be safe in the
care of the companies that are de

In the earlier days of Goldficld,
during the period of mad specula
tion and jieruicious wild catting,
there were many Henry Webers
and worse. Money invested in "se
curities" was frequently diverted
to other uses than sinking shafts and
installing machinery. Too fre
quently "office" nnd "mine" ex-
louses were thc reverse of their
