.1 MINING EXPERT.
' Mr. Rogers, an alleged mining ex
pert, went up on the steamer Al-Ki
which sailed from Seattle for Dyea
Tuesday. This "niiniDff expert of
world-wid fame," who floats tip
from the bathos vast abyss, goes to
Alaska to search in midwinter for the
ledge or ledges from which the
placers of the Clondyke were sup
Its a dead sure shot that Rogers
doesn't know -quartz from homeopa
thy, or a porphyry dj-ke from a Mis
souri mill dam, or be would not
jump at the conclusion that the gold
came from ledges, or if be did that
those ledges were still in existence.
He might go down to California and
hunt for the ledges that supplied the
old river bed with gold, or seek the
vast storehouse that filled the bars of
the Snake with their fine gold. If
the gold of the Clondyke were in the
" ledges, it wouldn't be in the placer,
and the converse of that proposition
What Mr. Rogers does not know
about mines as he goes into the Clon
dyke, -supplemented by what he does
not know when he comes out, would
make an encyclopaedia of ignorance.
Besides we state this proposition as
being absolutely true, that while
mining experts have developed
mines already found, no so-called
mining expert ever discovered a
Secretary Wilson is quoted in to
day's dispatches as opining that the
promotion of the beet sugar industry
will deal a severe blow to the sugar
trust, and the opinion is com me tula
ble, evenif it is not original with
Mr. Wilson. The surest way to
break down the big trust is to estab
lish a beet sugar factory in every
congressional district in the countiy
and make competition. It would be
far better to pay a little more for our
sugar and to keep the money for
sugar and employ this labor at home
than to flend abroad a hundred mill
ions in gold annually to purchase the
foreign article. If we would thus
distribute our great sugar industry
and raise the raw material in our own
fields and allow our own farmers to
profit thereby, there would be no
sugar trust, no more than there is a
wheat trust or a cabbage trust. It
would be the surest possible legisla
tion to abolish the sugar trust and
give the people native sugar instead
of foreign. Telegram.

Oregonian that price of stock will be
advanced after August 10th from
five cents to ten. The notice is
headed "We Are In It To Stay."
Looking backward over thirty years
of mining experience, that notiee
puts the flavor of the good old stock
gambling, days in San Francisco in
one's mouth, and makes an old-timer
smile at the suggestiveness of the
head-line. Most of the officers of
the companies were "in it to stay."
It was only the outside sucker who
got in it to be "froze out." History
( And now come roports of fabulous
strikes on Stewart's river, where the
mines are said to be as rich as those
of the Clondyke. It is undoubtedly
true that the gold fields of the Yukon
are wonderfully rich and that they
will also prove to be extensive. Yet
what matters it how rich they may
be to people not already there. The
strike might as well have been made
in the moon as far as reaching it this
year is concerned, and yet there will
be thousands rush up to Dyea and
St. Michaels this fall to feed on snow
balls and hope until next spring.
Then they will be in no condition to
make the trip into the mines, and
will be left in the race by those who
start next spring.
J. N. Smith, writing from on board
the steamer Mexico, on the way
from Juneau to Dyea, says the re
ports at Juneau were to the effect
that there were 500 miners at Dyea
unable to get across the Chilcat pass.
At Skaguay is another pass over
which horses can be taken, and this
route will probably be chosen by
those with horses. Mr. Smith,
among other things, says that on the
stearrer Mexico there are sixty-one
horses and one jackass. As there are
350 passengers, Mr. Smith has evi
dently made a serious blunder in
enumerating the jackasses.
The life insurance companies re
fuse to insure persons going to
Alaska. Life insurance companies
are true sports, never wanting a dead
thing when they gamble. .

The Seeing; of Ghosts Doe to Defective
A recnt number of the Australian
Medical Gazette contains a brief but
instructive report of the cure of a case
of hallucinatory disorder. The patient,
a man aged GO years, had suffered for
two. years from subjective visual sensa
tions not a day passed that he did not
6ee a large number of spectral human
figures, and "believing himself to be
haunted by ghosts he had become very
despondent and melancholy. On seek
ing medical advice it was found that
he had senile cataract. When this was
removed by operation the ghosts fled
and the man recovered his usual health.
In this connection we may cite the case
of a tradesman in Berlin whose shop
was haunted by apparitions resembling
in appearance some of his deceased cus
tomers. He was an intelligent man,
aware that he suffered from sensory
hallucination, and made notes of his
subjective impressions. In due time he
submitted his eyes to examination and
operation, with' the result of a restora
tion of normal vision and the immedi
ate and final disappearance of his in
tangible visitors. The obvious teach
ing of the foregoing and similar cases is
that in these modern days the person to
be resorted to for the exorcism of spir
its and demons is the opthalmic sur
geon. Green Snow.
Three places at least are known.
where green snow is found. One of
these places is near Mount Hecla, Ice
land; another 14 miles east of the
mouth of the Obi, and the third near
Quito, South America.
