It was tukou up hy GaHsondi (about IOTiO), aud after him by Uoylo and Newton. It received a greatly incruiiHed import ance hy tho diHCovery hy Daltou of tho law of multiple proportions TIiIh law of Daltou Ih tho one funda moiiiil conception upon which modern theory Ih built up. Another Ih the law of Avugndro, according to which eiiial voIiiiiioh of different gasoH under like couditioiiH of temperalure and proHHiire contain tho hiiiiio iiuiiiber of iiioIoouIoh. Soiiio dilllcultioH to tho law of Avogadro wore eliminated by Cauui'iirnii through tho application, of tho theory of dlHHociutiou, founded in 1HH7 by St. Claire Duvillu. At tho hiiiiio lime wo Hud in the writinga of Cluti'duH tho flint tracon of an idea that hiiIIh and other electrolytoH tiro partially dissociated in aqueous HolutioiiH. A rcHcarch of the con ductivity for electricity of Halt HolutioiiH led ArrhouiiiH to HiippoHO that not all, but only part the ho called active part -of the Halt moleculoH conduct electricity. Tho other part Ih wholly inactive in t IiIh reward. At increiiHiiiK dilution tho inactive iiioIocuIoh are converted into active ouch, till at extremely high dilutioiiH all molo- ou Ioh liecomo active. lOxporionco now Hhowcd that electrical activity of uioieculeH cnincidoH with chemical actlvltv. From thin point, of view (lie phenomena of neutralization, of reaction velocity, and of chemical diHplacemeut regarding acids and biiHCH, were eanily explained. The iuiiortiMit diHcovery of van't. Ilolf that tho Iiiwh for the gassos are iiIho valid for dissolved Doilies, gave the key for determining the real nature of the active iuoIoouIoh. Hy the detormiiiatinn of the molecular weight of partially active substance, according to van't Holt's law they Hhowed them to he dissociated, and jiiHt to the hiiiiio fraction iih the active part of the whole. From (IiIh it follows that in very moat dilu tioiiH the iiinlcouloH of salts and other electrolytes (acids and bases) are ompletely dissociated into electri cally charged parts, which after Fara day were called ions. Therefore all prnpcrticH of their solutions may bo reminded iih the sum of the properties of the porsotit ions; these properties are therefore called "additive." The law that the properties of elec trolytes iu aqueous solutions are additive is very far-reaching. All hitherto examined physical prop erties of these substances, salts, acids, and banes, which play the most important role iu comniou life, can hy help of that law be treated iu a very simple way. Hut Huttlolontly greater Ih its value for tho analytical ohotnlitry, which Iihh found its rational fundament iu this law, as the researches of Otwftlo) hIiow. Hy help of thin law completed by tau't. Hoff'a Uw, it hat) been possible to apply mathematical analysis to chemical phenomena. This circum stance Kites the new part of the chemistry the physical chemistry the character of an exact science. The development has shown that the eleotrioity pliya also in the domain of chemistry a highly importaut role; Its im portance uoomu to bo Hufllcleutly Increased by the most rocout reseurchuB that guvo birth to tho theory of electrons to which Hritisb authors have contri buted in a most effective manner. Mining Reporter. TWO MINING CLAIMS HAVE SAME NAME HOIST AT 1 HE BLACK BUTTE The fact that there are two Gold Coin mining properties iu the dis trict has led to more or less confu sion. One is located In the Ureeu hors aud T. S. Kennerly is superin tendent of it, aud the otbor 1b iu the Cracker Creek country. J. M. Doyle has charge of the latter. Mr. Kennerly nays that ho has boon put to a great deal of inconvenience on account of tho fact. HIh mail ia frequently opened by tho Cracker Creek Gold Coin people and his sup plies missont. He says ho thiuks bis property win named first, aud ho Ih going to institute an investigation to this end, with a view to having tho other people change tho name of their mine. Manager O. C. Wright, of tho Wheeler properties, had information from the Hlaolc Hutto yesterday that the raise from tho tunnel level would break through to tho surface today. Tho iiiHtallatiou of the hoist will be started at once. The machinery in all on tho ground, and Fnginoor Kyau left, today to undertake the construction of the plant. It Ih to be a 1, '200-foot, depth capacity plant, aud will bo HniHhed at the earliest possible date. A load of Hiipplles was mint out to the property today. Mr. Wright, who came in from the lilue Hird a day or ho ago, says that work on this mill la proceeding very satisfactorily, lie says also that, development results are better than ever.

The force at the Gold Hug Iiiih boon doubled, aud work is going rapidly ahead. j $ 1 00 In Seven Ounces of Rock. i J. K. Komig, tho mining man, informs us that the machinery is on j the ground and work will begin at once on the property recently acquired by his company. Tho property consists of several claims, but do vonlpmout work will bo concentrated, for the present on tho Chicago, aud iih the new plant has a capacity of two thousand feet, it may bo expected that thero will ho something doing iu tho vicinity of tho Chicago, which now Iiiih a shaft MOO foot in dopth, from which wonderful ore has boon obtained.

We own seven claims, have plenty of timber and water. Our tunnel is now in over Four Hundred and Fifty feet, have cut three ledges which assiy from flli.OO to f IIM.OO per ton. We are now driving into tho O. K. ledge, whose surface showings show that it is the richest ledge of tho property Our property is fully equipped with bunk and boarding house, blacksmith shop, stable, store house and tunnel house, Wo have worked two shifts sternly for the past eight months and our ore dump has several tliousiindHof dollars of ore ready for treatment. Tho property ih well equipped and the Lucv Mine Iihh the ore. The property will soon bo on a paving basis and will stand the closest investigation. Stock can bo bought in monthly installments if desired. fltf.OO will buy UK) shares; fLWMM) will buv 1000, etc. Anyone who will invest f 1000 or more we will furnish free transportation ami all expenses to visit the property and in spect it. -: '-" '' ''-' '' G.
