Ing mines. All speak favorably and pre
ilk I a large Influx of people.
TMObh who rt the time lock of their
buslnesH affaiti to open lor the rrcrption
of thr boom in Sumptrr next spring, were
four or live months off in their calcula
tions. The boom has arrived and taken
possession of the town; and.' It Is a very
warm one, too.
Willi a clear tide to Ihr Granite town
site, that camp ought In receive an lm.
pelus that in a few mouths will give it a
iimiis.mil population. People returning
mini mere, nowem, say thry arc driven
out by exorbitant prices. This defect In
the proposition will be "remedied by time
and a Utile e.xpeilence.
THIS town Is too busy to monkey with
politics. Ilotli parties have held one meet
ing, organlrd clubs, adoptrd a job lot of
whereases and resolves, and its members
then Immediately resumed their legitimate
avocations, apparently forgetting the
club. If this Is not a good omen of much
promise for the community, one was never
submitted for consideration.
Till- statement has been put on the
wires Out William l.ee, of Ontario, this
Mate, Is preparing to make use of the
great ne.u ol strain grnrratrd in the in
terior of the earth, for running pumps,
which shall pump water on a large salr
for Irrigating purposrs. The steam now
reaches the surface through a large artes
ian well between Ontario and Vale.
Tim present so-called business district
of this camp must expand. Tills Is an
era of local as well a national expansion,
and the man owning property accessible
for business purposes, who has the nerve
and Intelligence and enterprise to show
his faith in his own property by erecting
a hotel and a few business houses thereon,
will reap a rich harvest. There Is too
much vacant land around for a few blocks
to continue congested and yield more In
annua) rentals than they are worth.
REPORTS from South Africa almost
raise the hope that England will not suc
ceed in its attempted rape of the Dutch
republic; that the Hoers will yet be able to
protect their own and maintain their
rights. The great surprise of the war is
that these reputed primitive people .axel
supplied with the most modern weapons,
Doth in small arms and artillery, and have
men skilled in their deadly use. It is
known that several American officers',
educated at West Point and trained In the
school of frontier experience, are with
Kruger's men. And they will come
pretty near giving the English comman
ders "a run for their money."
IN this day of advanced scientific re
search the press dispatches gravely an
nounce that some savant has succeeded,
through chemical action, in producing an
egg and hatching from it a living thing,
some lo.v order of animal life. And the
scientist is quoted, without even the wink
of the other eye, as it were; without a
pretense of casting a doubt on his crazy
statement, that he has discovered the im
penetrable secret of life and will yet turn
from his laboratory an artificially man-
made human being. It is a wilder freak
of a mind diseased than was ever in-
dulged in by the alchemists of old, whoj
wasted their lives in the futile attempt to
' ... .. , . . , ,
I lve the problem of the transmutation of
metals. These are the two coveted se
crets which nature will not reveal; but one
power "sways these harmonious myster
ies of the world," and man can never con
trol nor divine that power.
