Dr. A. It. Taylor, a foremost western
educator and for many years president
of tho Kansas State Normal school In
Emporln, tells this story: "As I was
walking downtown one day, Just a fow
steps ahead of me wns a flno old gen
tlenian In silk hat and broadcloth, who
had a most absurd poster pinned on
his back, contrasting oddly with his
dignified bearing. Just then around
tho corner enmo n youtjg fellow with
an even more ridiculous poster pinned
to bis back. Being Ignorant of his own
decoration tho youngster immediately
began laughing at the older man.
"So I fell to moralizing," says Dr.
Taylor, "deducing something llko this:
'Could wo but bcc ourselves ns others
seo us, wo would often change the
theme of our discourse.' Then as I
stepped into a butcher shop tho pro
prietor called out to me: 'Good morn,

boys have been pinning on your
back?' " Kansns City Star.

(Synopsis of Discussion by George
Otis Smith, Director, United States
Geological Survey, before New
York Section of American Institute
of Mining Engineers, New York,
March 5, 1915.)
"For more than half n year we have
watched the ndjustment3 nnd read
justments of American industries to
meet new conditions. Six months
ngo the United Slates Geological Sur
vey suggested by the publication of
Bulletin 500, the extent to which Am
erica's mineral reserves could be
drawn upon to meet the emergency
and indeed to strengthen the position
of the United States as n world power
in industtry and commerce. Today,
as a nation, we face an even greater
crisis in our commercial relations, so
that a discussion of national independ
ence is especially opportune.
"As n nation we began with n dec
laration of independence loading to
an experiment in statecraft, popular
government on a large scale in a
string of colonial settlements connect
ed only in a crude way by post roads
and coastwise sailing vessels, nnd per
haps even more feebly united by
bonds of a common race and creed.
Yet that political independence was
the breath of life in the now nation,
and the ideal then set up attracted
the best human material from all
lands. Thus, wo may say, was devel
oped America's greatest resource, u
positive citizenry.
"The other element necessary to
make America great in material re
sources the earth and the fullness
thereof. I do not discount the wealth
of our forests, which have contribu
ted so largely to our foreign and do
mestic trade since colonial days, nor
do I disregard the bounty of our soil,
which enables us in these days of
waste and war to feed tho peoples of
Europe as well as ourselves, yet I
believe the mineral wealth of the Un
ited States is largest measure the
foundation of the marvelous growth
of the past few decades. Industrial
America! think of what degree the
industries of America are based on
our nnd mineral fuels, or figure, if
you will, the percentage of railroad
tonnage that originates in tho mines.
"Not only is our country a world
leader in the output of such essential
minerals as coal, petroleum, copper,
zinc, iron, lead, phosphntc and in
three of these it exceeds all other
countries put together but ns fur as
such things can be measured or esti
mated we are blessed in the possess
sion of the largest reserves of many
of the more important of these miner
als. No other country can, in any
sense, compare with the United States
in the degree of industrial independ
ence afforded by the possession of
these mineral resources. The raw
material is at hand to enable us to win
and maintain supremacy ps a manu
facturing nation.
"Yet under this 'most favored na
tion clause,' the catalogue of our min
eral resources is not the complete list
of minerals essential to modern civi
lization; a few items are missing,
others are present apparently in in
sufficient quantities, and the quantity
or locality of the deposits of still oth
or minerals may be unfavorable to
present-day utilization. Thus it haj-
pens that the nation is not wholely in
dependent in its mineral industry, and
no problem better deserves the atten
tion of the American mining engin
eers than this. How can we fill these
crans and thus make America more
truly independent?
"Tho catalogue of the products of
our mines, quarries and wells is long.
Tho list of what we lack is short. We
are wholely dependent on other coun
tries for only four principal items
tin and nickel, potash and nitrate
Among the minerals of which the U.
nited States has a deficient supply
are manganese, platinum, gems und
asbestos. Still other minerals it has
heretofore found more profitable to
buy abroad than to produce at home,
such as chrome ore, barytes, flint pel)
bles, magncsitc, mica and graphite.
"These deficiencies create problems
relating to the three types or classes
of minerals. In the first class tin nnd
nickel only seem hopeless and as
matter of fact the wholo world is jioor
in tin. Especially is this scarcity
felt in certain of the countries now nt
war, where tho shortage duo to the
cessation of imports is intensified by
thu increased use of tin in canning ni
my supplies. But wo can look to
South America for tin oro nnd make

nia where potash occurs in even
greater qunnity than that nt first es
timated by the Geological survey, but
the problem of its commercial ex
traction lias not yet been fully solv
ed by the chemical engineers.
The deficiencies of the second
class like manganese and platinum,
are stimulating to the engineer nnd
the geologist, one to. develop and the
other to discover. The recent find in
Southern Nevada of rich platinum
bearing gold oro constitutes a nota
ble addition to the world's supply of
this too rare metal.
"The third class of minerals, those
which it has paid belter to buy from
foreign producers, probably furnish
es the largest incentive for theefTort
to secure mineralogical independence.
Here, especially can the geologist and
engineer co-operate. Magnesite,
graphite, for example, nrc common
minerals, of which large deposits
have been found in this country, yet
up to the present time, they have
been large items of import from Aus
tria, Canada and India.
"As an encouraging instance of
mineralogical independence, you may
ccall that only ten years ago this
country imported its sulphur from
Sicily, whereas now, by reason of the
work of one engineer, the United
States loads the world in the mining
of .sulphur. Can not further success
be expected in the utilization of min
eral resources hitherto practically un
"The substitution of certain min
erals of domestic origin for those
bought in foreign markets will bring
us face to face with the problem of
standardization. Prico is not the last
word with the manufacturor-consum-
This is n good time to drop any
ideas we may have of industrial su
periority and to copy for a while the
ndustrial spirit of Germany which
systematized processes nnd stand
ardized products until they won mar
kets in every continent out of sheer
"The outlook for successful endeav
or by the American engineer seems
very bright.
