There have been many inquiries
at Bureau headquarters concerning
the silver lead strike in California,
about seventy miles out in the Mo
have desert, from Los Angeles. Much
interest has been shown too in the
latest gold strike in British Colum
bia. “ The grass grows green a long
way o ff,” is truer o f mining than
anything else we can think of. As
we have frequently called to atten
tion in these columns, even if the
newspaper reports are to be accepted
at their face value, nothing much
better has ever been reported than
is in plain sight from our doors.
There is less claimed for Leadville,
California, than is acknowledged to
be in Galice alone. For some reason,

a glacier or a desert, looms larger
than a double eagle in the front
There is an old adage that “ Good
wine needs no bush,” and we have
always taken the attitude here that
a real mining district would event
ually come into its own, without the
need o f. so-called high pressure ad
vertising. We may be wrong, but
we are going to stick a while longer
to just that stand. Of course the
new “ strike” is near Los Angeles,
a very substantial town built on
nothing but persistent boosting, just
now in need of something to offset
the Florida boom and the smallpox
scare, but that might not argue con
clusively against the finding o f metal

however the present boom looks very
much like a preparation for a run Hayden, Robert Goff, J. R. Bates
