fllK Silverton Miner places it
JL self emphaticnlly on record in
i a recent extended editorial as being
! in favor of the "Boosters Club
After reviewing the opportunities
in the mine of San Juan county,
the Miner calls upon the towns'
DeoDle to lend tbetuselcs to a con
certed movement to make the out
side world know as much about
these oppottunitics as theSilvcrton
ltes do themselves. The name of
Silverton is one of special historic
significance in Colorado, for it was
to this region that one of the ear
liest mining stampedes occurred to
jtart and keep alive the prospecting
ipirit in the days when Colorado
was only a part of Uncle Sam's vast
territorial domain. Years of devel
opment, with modern enterprise
i piled on top of them, have not cut
Idown the chances of success among
these hills. Capital can still go in
1401 find a profitable welcome. The
jnaln mniHmlinn t!irfnriv is fnr
Bapital to appreciate the fact.
"Experienced capitalists, who
Iare ever alert Tor sale investments
which will afford belter, than ordi-
inary returns," says the Miner, "are
quick to recognize the promise of
wealth and gain in the mining in
dustry, and that they are rapidly
becoming convinced of the golden
opportunity existing here today is
I most convincingly evidenced by the
I continued and constantly increasing
inflow of money for the opening up
and development of the many ex
Icellent prospects for the erection
and equipment of extensive milling
plants for the treatment of the out'
put of the mines already producing

in me great boumwert uasgone
(forward with the almost phenom
lenal strides that have characterized
the doings in San Juan county dur
ing the past season. Down every
Mountain stream, from every gulch
fend alontr every trail comes the
lews of activity, of new strikes and
f recently inaugurated enterprises,
ill of which tend to an increased
neatness of the district and the ex
panded property of all who have
past their lots in this, one of the
Inost favored spots of Nature's do
uain. As the season ol warmth and
Iuushitie passes and winter with its
ales and snows comes on apace,
ctive mining operations in various
barts ot the district will neces-
Iarily have to be abandoned,
irhile many of the more favorably
ituated properties will continue
gheir activity all the year. How

frill witness a general renewal of

iirged scale is assured throughout

Mthough dynamite is not ex
ploded by an electric spark, but
simply bums away when a current
of electricity passes through it, it
ought to be adopted ns a general
rule to keep explosives at a dist

capable of generating strong cur
rents. When tamping charges hav

The action and effect of the present

precedents and decisions for almost
every case to cover existing mining
