KtmhiK TeUirnni, A rumor was current today that a matter of 550,000 price Increase lias prevented, temporarily nt leant, the sale of the Lucky Hoy mine, owned by L. Zimmerman and J. J. Sharkey, of tills city. George W. Lloyd, of the Crystal Consolidated, had negotiated, it was said, for the mine nt $100,010, but when he came to close- the deal, Mr. .Ini mnrman hail added another 550,000 to the price Professor Webber mid Mr. Lloyd went to tilt Lucky Hoy in January mid innile complete inspection of the property. A letter front I'ro fessor Webber whs said to give de tails of the filling through of the deal, although negotiations are not believed t be olf. Mr. Shatkcy said today: "I do not know anything about It, and it is all Greek to me. There Is 110 until in the repot t, as the property is not on the m.iikct." There aie a umber of mining men in the city who know tlut Mr. Lloyd and 1'iofessor Webber both visited the mine and .secured con sent to handle the same, and for that purpose went Hist. I'rofessor Wcblier's letter conies from Washington. I). C , where he now is. Mi. Zimmerman said: "Tbe 1 e is not a particle of truth III the rumor regat'diug the sale. I have tepcatedly said the Lucky Hoy was not for sale, and have never olfcrcd it to any one. Mr Lloyd held 011 option on 100,000 shares of the treasury stock, which he bud the right to dispose of. Some days ago Mr. Lloyd wired me that Alusworth, of New York, would pay $400,000 net for the property, and 1 answered I would not consider that at any time. He again wited, asking what price I would put 011 it, and I answered tlut the property was not for sale, but for him to confine himself to the contract. Since that time I have not heard from him. ''It would be very singular pro cedure lor me to sell a properly lor the amount stated when the water power alone Is worth more than that, to say nothing of the mine. We have spent over $200,000 in im provements, and have $160,000 in the treasury. Our mill will pro duce at least $30,000 monthly m soon as started, which will be very shortly. "I have never put n price on the mine, and I would be foolish to sell with such 1111 income in sight, as we have the ore blocked out, mid the past production is sufficient guarantee of the future. I know Mr. Lloyd is very anxious to handle the property, but we will not sell it.

WIIERP. FORTUNES ARE MADE. The unparalleled prosperity of the mining industry at the present time has cntiHed widespread public attention. Fortunes are to be ob tained by following mining and by investing in mining stocks, and the business men of today arc realizing this tact and profiting by it as in no other period ol our history. There is an clement of hazard in every business, but not as great a risk in mining as has been im agined in the past. Mining has been reduced to a business. Im proved machinery, scientific knowl edge and business management places mining 011 as safe a plane of operation as that of any business requiring nil of these elements. Millionaires and multi-millionaires are made in the marvelous business of mining. Where a company ex ercises great care in the selection of its pioperties, expends sufficient money intelligently and well, every stockeolder of that company will be benefitted by rapid advancement of his stock and by rich returns from the mines. --National Hanker.
