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 lize th"t many millions f intoiest have bcni lout to tln'in through heeding the adviiv of tli"He interes ted in cheap money, and that aui"iig hanking insl itutions of the west, iglitccu nnd twenty por rent pi r annum in no otHidored a haaii!otiH western profit or execu tive dividend on the great majority of our gilt edged mining necuritie", and further, tin.- licheM men in the W'nild are mining king, many of whom have ;;rovn powciful enough 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 advances, making enormous profits for i t m hiijipoi teiM. building great states an I citiis and points with pride to the American possession of mines tint liuvo puil in div idend's over f-125.tMIO.OOO. '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 ual millionr. iiH, making possible iri gantic undettakingH that are pro duetivof enormous revenuo. The 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 of industry. "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 Copper trust' have opened the eyes of the conservathe and modem iu vestois and they ure makiDg efforts to obtain their shaio of the metallic wealth which nature has spread bo lavishly. "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 sible the tremendous profits that . 11 signalize succcssrui mining.
