The Cause of failure
In the field of mining there are,
primarily, but two causes for failure-poor
judgement and dishon
esty. The presence of one or both
of these elements has been the
direct cause of closing down of
many a good property, to the loss
and great disappointment of the
owners and stockholders, and the
burden of the sin is laid at the door
of the mine.
The first falhe step is usual'y
made by the board of directors in
appointing as manager a man who
has had but little actual mining
practice, or if he possess) this, then
perhaps his business experience is
very limited. The two combined
are absolutely) necessary to insure
success. Then Again. Should the
directors lc fortunate enough to
secure a first-class man, they tie his
hands by limiting his authority, or
refuse to act on his suggestions be
cause they dont sec the necessity of
, doing so and so; thus, at the very
! outset, subordinating their tnnna-

any is fortunate enough to secure a
competent manager it should give
him a free hand and full power to
act. If there are any doubts about
the advisability of doing this, they
should be dispelled at once by dis
missing the man and employing
another in whom they have the re

Failure is not infrequently caused
by the displacing of the manager
by a son, nephew or son-in-law of
one of the "heaviest stockholders,"
who is a cigarette dude that parts
his mane iu the middle, and knows
all about everything except his
own asinine proclivities. The
placing of such timber in positions
of this kind is little short of crim
inal, as they have little conception
ot the value of money (or anything
else,) and the practice of economy
is substituted by foolish extrava
gence which soon depletes the
treasury and wrecks the enterprise.

failure is brought about through
dishonesty. Instances are not
wanting where conditions tit the
mine are most favorable aud all
things pointed to success, when the
members of the coinptny began
gouging and scheming to get the
better of each other, to secure the
control, and so the mine is shut
