has again instructed bis solicitor gen
eral to play the part ef an angel of
mercy and appear before the United
States supreme court and admit error on
the part of the government, in the case
of A. F. Smith and the Columbia River
Shipbuilding corporation, and Joseph R.
Bowles and the Northwest Steel com
pany, all of Oregon. The defendants
were held in contempt of court, fined
$2500 each and ordered committed until
thev delivered all papers and records tn
connection with their shipbuilding war
contracts, to special agents of the de
partment of justice. But the solicitor
reaeral's admission of error was again
recognised by the supreme court, ana
the whole proceed lugs were oismissea
hence, another millionaire forgiven.
If the nresent powers that be at
Washington continue their present
methods it will not be necessary zor
them to appear before the United States
supreme court and admit error me
whole world will know that they are
error." E. Eilingson.

matter of fact it Is. or was, once affixed

;Vereneseneckockockhoff. Will some apt
ticgulst please come forward and pro
nounce It for us? The name figures in
a writ of review by the supreme court
of the state of California some years
ago. wherein the appellant, verenese-
neskockockhoff asks for a retrial after
having been convicted of first degree
murder In the trial court. After not
ing that a new trial had been denied the
appellant I believe I could distinguish
two distinct words in that cognomen
that were fateful to the owner "neck"

' WANTS FORD TO COME WEST
Portland, Jan. 14. To the Editor ot
The Journal While we are discussing
the development of hydro-electric power
on the Columbia river and the irriga
tion of the Columbia basin lands, why
not invite Henry Ford to investigate
the two projects? I know he has con
sidered an industrial project in Oregon
if he did not get the Muscle Shoals
dams, and it is possible he could be in
duced to look Into the Columbia river
power and irrigation projects even if be
does get the other. Of course, some
might object to his coming here on ac
count of party affiliation or lack of
such, but If It would put us all in "tha
way of making money, we would soon
forgive him ot that sin and perhaps
all others he may be accused ot.

As I was waiting for the southbound

kt East Morrison street last Friday
morning I fell Into talk with a fellow
traveler. I told him I was on my way to

to San Francisco to arrange for the

graduated in 1901. He put in tne next
three years at Oregon Agricultural col
lege, graduating In 1904 as a mining
engineer. From Corvallls be went to
Berkeley snd In 1905 he was graduated
from the University of California. He
returned to Corvallls and for the next
two years was an Instructor In mining
engineering at O. A. C lie then came
to Portland, and with A. 8. Wells, now
pure food chemist tor the state of Ore
gon, opened an office at 204 wasn
Ington street, where for several years
they conducted a chemical laboratory
and assay office. Mr. Proebstel left
Portland to accept a position as metal
lurgist at the Highland mine, Treka. CaL
In the early days millions in placer
gold was washed out by rocker, "long

Proebstel. "We had a small two-stamp

there I melted up over a million and a
quarter in gold. The ore in a 4-inch
vein averaged $23.75 per pound no, I
don't mean per ton: I mean per pound.
The mine was eold in the fall of 1910
to a Dutch company ror $ZM.eos spot
cash. They took out over $2,000,000
after I left. From Treka I went to
Kennett, CaL. as analytical chemist for
the Mammoth Copper company.. After
four years there I came home to Port
land and taught chemistry at the
school, 'now called the Oregon Institute

We packed our gripe and. hired a small
boat, the Spray, to take us to Helem

made the strike and dug a narrow trench
across the vein, which we sized up care
fully. Wo panned dirt from many potrrts
on the strike and never panned a shovel

elded tt would make a mine. He was
willing to sell It ss s prospect, snd so
we bought It. We Interested some Port
land people and we have incorporated.
No, there Is no stock for sale. This Is
a mine, not a promotion proposition. We
are going to make our money out of the
ore. not out of the stockholders. Here
are the assayers reports. Too can see
that with ore averaging over $11 to the
ton In gold we hava a good thing. It
would no( be much of a propoailioa un
less we had a large ore body, but that
is whst we have, so we can keep our
stamp mill busy for many years to come.

They ran across a pocket recently. From
leas than two tons of rotten quarts they
took out over $28,000 In gold. Not far
