The mericau Mining Congress,
wtiich lias been in session at Dead
wood, S. D., elected Port laud, Ore
gon, as tlio place of moetiug next year.
We have all tilings needed or required
for mining except capilnl, and (lie
capitalists aro beginning to discover
the hidden riches oi the country
"where rolls the Oregon."
Reed Smoot, one of the head men of
the Monnou church and who was
elected to the United States seuste
from Utah last winter, is in for
trouble this fall Tho W. 0. T. U.
lias begun a campaign for his expul

' fore tho election.
The American people, smile at the
"Heathen Chlnoo" for having li in
. . bones sent back to his uiitivo land for
burial after his death, but since we
have become . a "world power"
Americas are doing the same thifig.
Saturday the U. 8. transport Klrk-
Patrick arrived iu New York with
, the bodies of illlO soldiers who Josl
their lives in the Philippics. The
difference betwoen tho Chinese nud
the Americans is the fact that the
Chiaman pays freight on bones only,
which makes it much cheaper.
Tho discovery in Germany of a new
metal, called solium, by Edward Mol
lard, a Frenchman, is reported to the
State Department at Washington.
Tho discoverer asserts that sil um
costs only ouo-twelfth as much as al
lutiilnnm and is lighter and stronger.
It does not rust, and is therefore
suitable for shipbuilding, for the
manufacture of plies and for rail-
Vftnfl nfiiiiitrnptinn. It. is asserted, also.
that as it is capablo of taking a fine
polish, resembling nlcklo, It would
be desirable for cooking utensils. Its
Iiardnoss Is not quite equal to that of
iron, but is greater than that of lead
or rlno. IU power of resistance is
said to be greater than that of iron,
but less thau tliut of steel.
Eight years sgo.Oreu Root, ag d 22,
was driving spikes on a New York
street railway at 11.7.1 per day. To
day, tho same Oreu Root, aged HI), is
general manager of tho system with
direct supervision of 14,000 men.
That is a good cxpamlo of tho possi
bilities in every branch of mechunleal
industry and a good answer to tliejx's
slmist who says: "A poor man has
UO chance any more." Never in the
world's history were there letter
chances than right now for a man
who lias It iu him to go ahead.
However "poor" ho may be, if he
bo rich iu mutihood, ho is bound to
get ahead ; and however rich he may
be, if ho is poor in the qualities that
make for material success ho is cer
tain to fall back. "Pull" or In
fluence may get a man a Hue posi
tion, but he must have merit to hold
It, When Root was diivtng spikes
for f 1.76 a day, he drove them wi ll,
and whenever he hud a elniuco he

dertook to choose a iiuine for the

that it be all. d l'.ostoti in honor of
his native state. Mr. Pettygrove con
tended that Portland wus more sp

navigation, and the )xirt where would
land all the freight intended for the

southern produce ot the territory. In

MINES ARE CONSOLIDATED:
One of tho most linoprtaut mining
deals ever consummated in Southern
Oregon, was closed in Portland, last
week, tho Galico Hyrdaulio and St.
Helens Companies, being consolidat
ed. For several years the St Helens
a nd Gulice Hydraulic Mining Com
panies havo been operating in Jose-
pine County. The St. Helens prop-
rty was operated under a corporation
of which A. B. Cousiu was manager,
and has produced some very rich
placer gold. The Gulice has also
been developing for some time, and
joius the St. Helens, both properties
being situated on Gulice creek. Ihe

has been curried through under a
