The Daily Milling Uecord says
"It is .in iiii(lini;il)le fact tliat most
iullii' mini Imihi rifss men of the
world have turned their attention
to milling, the source of nearly all
wealth; ir permum who have been
enslaved to the i'lea that the only
safe proposition whs a (i v per cent
or six per c nt H'-nnity, now rea

I In 1 1 Vj the piopi-r application of
originally " moderate cupital, and it
is piovi-ii that while millions of
doll ii. ha v" lu cii lost in railroad,
f.u in linn tgagc.s, asicrn industriiil
and budding associations, the
Aiin'i ieim mining industry steadily

'In mining in vestments extreiuo
y 1 r siin iiintH are not necessary
to make oiu micccsKful, for the man
of modi rate means, properly ad
vised, has opportunities of quickly
doubling his cupital. Under incor
poration gieat achievement!! are
made possihlo through combining
limited Minis vi thousands, thus
equaling the capital of the individ

gantic undettakingH that are pro

dollar of the man of moderate
means is equally as powerful as the
dollar ol tho money king. Both
nerve their purpose; both are en
titled to their proportionate profits.
"In legitimate mining a twenty
five per cent dividend is not con
sidered Htartling and tho mining in
terests of the west are willing to
pay that interest for the uso of
money, for by tho aid of capital
they open up tremendous ore
bodies that lead to still greater
fortune. Tho employment of $10,
000 in mining is the equivalent of
40,000 in most any other branch
"For yems the wondrous profits
of the metal industries have bom
whispered among investors, who
uppare ntlv weio afraid to lit their
neighbors" know they were identified
with mining, but the otTorts of the
financial czars of the world in form
ing combinations to control first
tho markets of the miners through
the 'smelting tiusf and then the
mines tnroiigh the 'Amalgamated

of the conservathe and modem iu

"Nature has laid her treasures
in the mountain recesses of the
"West. The American miner searches
them out. Eastern money makes
possible their conversion into bul
lion and tho joint results of the
minf.r find the canitulists make pos

signalize succcssrui mining.
