MINING AT THE FAIR. The act of congress providirg for the World's Columhian Exposition, raised milling to an industrial rauk that previ ous expositions bad denied it. At Paris, at Loudon and at Vienna, the mineral exhibit was permitted to occupy a single court of meager sections, and was oom prehouded within one group of the gen eral classifications. At the centennial exposition while the exhibit was larger iu Brea than those of Paris and London, yet it was not deemed ot sufticieut im portance to be plaoed in a separate build ing, but was located in an annex added to the industrial building. Dnrler the scope and plan of the Co lumbian Imposition, aud uuderthe class ification provided for guidance iu instal lation, many of tbe branches of tbe min ing industry, heretofore incorporated iu other departments, will be plaoed in their legitimate aud natural positions in the mining building. Inspection of the classification of de partment "E," Miues aud Miuiug, gives some adequate idea of the variety of the exhibits comprehended. The raw ma terial, the natural product, lo be exhibit ed iu the miuiug department, will consti tute the basis of every other exhibit made, except that of agriculture aud horticulture. The ground work of all the arts and acietioes and the mecbauicul industries will be contemplated within the walls of the structure dedicated to mines, mining and metallurgy. All of the precious minerals, all of the econom ic minerals, all of the precious stones, all of the coals, all of tbe building stones and marbles, all of tbe clays and snnds all ot the salts and pigments, as well as tbe machinery, implements and appli ances employed in their conversion to tbe uses of man, will be fully represented. GOAL. The subject of coal will be treated on very broad lines, tt would be impossi ble to accept for exhibition purposes all the really meritorious speoimens of coal that cao be secured, for tbe purpose of demonstrating the resources of tbe coun try in this great fuel. The treatment must be comprehensive and sweeping, and the display bused upon tbe distribu tion of the great coal fields that stand out prominently in the geology of the oountry . Tho eoal industry is of gigan tic proportions, involving the investment of many millions of dollars and the em ployment of hundreds of thousands of people. Tho'display of ooal at the expo sition will be qualitative rather than quantative. Tbe diiT rent varieties of coal produced by the different localities will be shown, together with the chem ical analysis of each and tbe results ot tests determining economic value and adaptability to various uses. The ooal resources of oountries, Btates aud sec tions will be shown by geological maps and drawings, exhibiting the stratifica tion, oross-section, etc, which will ren der apparent the extent aud accessibility of the vast number of coal beds and veins which underlie the earth's surface. iron. As regards iron, efforts will be made to have an adequate exhibit ot that great branch of industry. Without consider ing tbe contributions that will be made to this division by foreign governments this country, which is now the first na tion in the world in iron production, will provide a display of the greatest interest and benefit to the manufacturing world. The development of tbe iron resouroes of the Southern United States within the past few years, no loss than the attention whiou has been devoted to this particu lar industry in the West in the same pe riod, surrounds this product with nation al interest. It is intended to arrange this exhibit with the fullest appreciation of the magnitude and importance of the iron industry, with ample data as to the location aud extent of the greater depos its, the analyses of the ores, with all the machinery and devices employed in mining, hoisting, cuuveving, storing, etc. Statistics not only based upon the oper ations of the past, but iu a degree iudi oating the extent to which they may be carried on in the future, will constitute a valuable feature of this division. Every provision has been made for the installation of the ores of both the pre cious and base metals and cabinets of mineral speoimens contributed by pri vate individuals, associations and tech nical and mining schools. These will be arranged with oonspiouous oare as to de tail. States, nations, individuals, collect ors and colleges will vie with one another in endeavors to establish the superiority of their respective collections, or to dem onstrate the value of oertain mineral countries, sections or lands, Every genious device and design will be utilized by the several states, territories and countries to illustrate tbe magnitude of their deposits. mining: machinery. The division of miuiug machinery will demonstrate the usefulness andeoonomy of every character of mechanical equip ment. Every device, invention, tool and appliance employed in the great indus try will be fully represented, either by an exhibit of tbe full-bize plant or by working models. The entire plant of smelting and refining works and the heavy maohinery used in orushiug and separating ores will be in operation. A complete series of metullu-gic processes from mineral to metal will be installed The extensive apparatus and tools em ployed iu the great petroleum and nat ural gas industries will be amply exhib ited, with oils and bi-produota. Mo group will be of greater interest or more practical value than that which illus trates the extent and method of the gi gantic operations in this division of the miueral kingdom. Plans for and the beat methods of eqnipiug assay offioes will be presented and illustrate ). Milling and scorifioa tiou furnaces, with luuilles, cupels, etc., with melting pots aud 11 uses handy for the production of the assayer's "button," volumetric aud other test methods, rolls and small crushers for prep iring teat lots of ores, the most delioate instruments of precision these and the associated appliauoes os metallurgy will be exposed for the edification and instruction of the visitor. MARBLES, ETC. Marbles, agates, jaspers, onyx, nil iei fled wood, etc., will be offered for the inspec tion of the architect end decorator. Nu merous maohines and tools for channell ing, sawing, lifting, turning and polish ing granites, sandstone, marble, etc., will be oollected for the purpose ot dem onstrating the facility with wbioh great masses of stoue are transformed into use ful and ornamental objects and made suitable for the most skilled handicraft. Sands for the manufacture of glass, many colored days, aud kaolin ot all grades for the potter, briokmaker, porce lain worker, etc.) polishing substances, whetstones, bones and emeries, will con stitute a group ot unusual interest to both the student and manufacturer. Aspbaltio and oement fixtures and arti ficial stones, which have made the pave ments of Pans and the capital of our own country superb iu their cleanliness and tbe admiration ot the world, will be illustrated in all their multifarious uses. The salt mines ot the Old World, and the brines and other salt workings of our own country will contribute their quota of this snowy, orystaline product. Add ing to the color effect and interest of tbe exhibit will be variegated beaps of ni trates, sulphates, borates, pigments of all kinds, ochres and vermilions, phosphates, coprolites aud every variety of mineral fertilizers. In another group tbe useful graphite, with the methods by which it is transformed tor use in tbe shape ot leads, orayons, lubricants, etc., will be exposed. aluminum. Ingots, bars and castings of white al uminum, with aluminum alloys, will be found in juxtaposition with pigs and bars of reddish copper. Tin ores and block tin, sheet and bar zinc, inrots of nickel, speoimens of bismuth, antimony, arsenic and other metals with their ores and alloys will be arranged in a manner confusing in diversity, yet artistically and scientifically disposed. Iu the miuiug machinery seotion will be shown every speoies of apparatus, simple and complex, employed in work- ine a mine from the lowest drift to the dump. Methods of timbering, venti lating and lighting tbe various slopes, levels and galleries will be shown by ex amples. Trams, hoists and automatic dumps, engines for pumping, rock break ers, screens, grizzlies and other sizing appliances will attract the inspection of the visitor and instruct in tbe greatest of all industries. Improved diamond drills and contrivances for loading and un loading ores.and for their storage, auto matic stevedores for transference on the surface, patent self-emptying cars, wire ropeways with their outfits or buckets, etc., coal tipples, steam shevelB, belt con veyors, etc, etc., will complete the meth ods by which the stupendous mining op erations of tbe present age are con ducted. MININO LITERATURE!. For the purpose of prsotical study, tbe division of history and literature of min ing and metallurgy will be unsurpassed. To this end, college faoultieo and pro fessional men are already pledged. Every facility will be afforded for exam ination in detail the geology and distri bution of minerals and ore-bearing rock. The rich, literary s'nres, maps, models etc, of tbe leading educational institu tions of the land, will present to tbe stu dent who visits this great repository at tbe Columbian exposition, and unex ampled opportunity for considering the entire subject of historical and statistical mining. Mine engineering will be ade quately represented by surveys and plottings, by projections of underground work and models, and by literature de scriptive of the methods of running shafts, tunnels, construction of mine workings and the handliug of ores. An elaborate and acourate reproduc tion of ancient and unique mining and metallurgical methods, appliances, tools, and processes as illustrating the evolu tions iu the industry, will attract tbe at tention of all olasses, aud teach fruitful lessons iu the advance of science, inven tion and general civilization. When the exhibits in tbe department of mines, mining and metallurgy shall have been properly collected, classified and arranged, the department will be a comprehensive and oomplete exposition of all the great mineral treasures of the earth and the methods employed in their search, their treatment and their usage. The Portland Telegram is the most oelbbrated manufacturer of mare's nests known in tbe Northwest. Its latest is an enormous howl over the appointment of J as. Lotan as oolleotor ot customs at Portland. Mr. Lotan has been some what of a leader in republican politios, tbut is true, but if one will take tbe trouble to study his rise from a common moulder in 1807 to foreman, then to su perintendent aud finally as principal owner of the works in which he was once a day laborer, it is nothing strange tnat ne snould Deoome a leader, in any I event, it is no part of tbe Telegram's business whom Harrison appoints to public office, so long as they Bre compe tent, and it is nssured that Mr. Lotan is such a man. When Grover Cleveland becomes president then we can expect tnat tue telegram can consistently pre sume to diotate his appointments in Ore gon. Till then its hermaphroditio howls will have no weight. General John BiDWELt,,of California, was nominated on the first ballot for president of the United States by the National Prohibition convention at Cin cinnati. Mr. Bidwell is an old pioneer of California, and at onetime wag a mem ber of congress. He is very wealthy and owus many broad acres of land. T. B. Oraufield, of Texas, was nominated for vice-president and running mate for Bidwell. The Pacific coast demands the early opening of the Nicaragua canal. It would cheapen nearly all articles tbat the consumer must buy. The Gazette believes that tbe people at large are in favor of the work beiug prosecuted under the auspioes of tbe government, and that it should own it exclusively on comple tion.
