Officers and stockholders of the
United States Molybdenum Metals,
Ltd., invited a number of business
men of the city to attend a meet
ing at the chamber of commerce
this afternoon, to explain to them
what they propose to do, and to get
' their moral support in the under

stronger. The rrfine is within 65
miles of Vancouver on the base of
Mount St. Helens, and the concern's
engineer estimated there are 7,000,

there is a great demand for it. Con
gress recently placed a duty of 50
cents a pound on the metal.

out seven miles on pack .horses or
mules and then brought to Vancou
ver by truck. It is expected that
four tons of concentrates daily will
be brought here and smelted. This

dock which can be utilized. Mr.
Bender has letters telling of the
great demand for the product. One
letter is an. offer to take one carload
of molybdenum per month at the
market price, which shows a ten
dency to increase rather than drop.
With the coming of this plant it
was said that other plants closely
allied would be more likely to locate
here. The company men were well
received an3 assured that all possi
ble will be done to assist them in
