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.
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.
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
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

is transformed tor use in tbe shape ot
leads, orayons, lubricants, etc., will be
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
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
