THE GREAT ZINC MINES.
Supbcrb Report From America's Wonder
ful Mining Region.
Scotts City, Mo., Aug. 20, 1800.
This is ono of the greatest mining
regions of the world. It Is a com
paratively new discovery and all the
plants are In operation In this camp.
The product is zinc or "rosin Jack" us
the ore Is called, and looks very much
liken poor grade of rosin as it comes
from the mine. It Is mixed with
tlint rock and Is all put through a
crusher and separated In a shaker.
The separated ore Is smelted with
ritone coal, but in It takes three tons
of coal to smelt one ton of zinc ore It
is cheaper to ship tho oro to tho coal
ticlds than to ship the coal to the ore.
Tho smelting Is dono at Pittsburgh,
Kansas. The oro Is found at a depth
of from 00 to 200 feet below the surface
and Is found over an area of 4,000
squaro miles, including tho cities of
Joplln, Webb City, Aurora, and tho
original raining town of Granby where
the llrst lead oro was discovered over
fifty years ago. A great many of tho
plants are idlo because of tho great
financial depression. Of tho 300 to
400 plants at Joplln not more than 30
to 40 are in operation. The same Is
true of nearly all of this vast mining
region, nt least 00 per cent are only
occupied by the bats and the owls,and
still they tell us there Is too much
money in tho country. This view is
correct from u gold standard view
until our miners and laborers nre wll
llngto work for tho lowest wages, of
the gold standard countries, gold will
continue to go away, from this coun
try, and bo Invested where labor and
products are cheaper than our laborers
and producers are willing to work for.
Clubs are organized all over tho coun
try to fight against the adoption of
tho gold standard. These clubs are
composed of men of all parties. Car
thage has a club, of several hundred
members, composed entirely of Repub
licans. They uro well organized and
aro sending out able speakers, from
among their number, to tho various
cities and towns, of tho district. In
almost every locality a union, of the
silver forces, has been formed for tho
election of free silver men to ofllce.
It Is estimated that Bryan will
carry Missouri by 05,000 majority.
POUTLAND, Aug. 20.-Now that
Democrats and Populists have ngreed
upon fusion and Indorsed Bryan and
Watson, some dllllculty is being ex
perienced In making up the personnel
or tho electoral ticket, which is to bo
two Populists, one Democrat and one
free sliver Republican. E. Hofcr, of
Salem, will probably go on as repre
sentative of tho free silver Remibil-
All of the Democratic nominees
want to bo their party's represent a
tlvc, their failure to agree may result
In the withdrawing of ull of them and
naming a new man. Tho gold Demo
crats are pleased over the. turn of af
fairs and say tho surrender or tho
Democrats to tho Populists gives n
greater reason for third ticket.
It Is stated this afternoon that all
of the Democratic nominees will be
withdrawn nnd N. L. Butler of Polk
county Will bo Democratic nominee.
Fusion ticket will probably bo as fol
lews: Harry Watkins (Pop.); M. L.
01mstcad,(Pop.);N. L.Butler, (Dem.);
and E. Hofer, (silver Rep.)
Bay City, Mich., Aug. 20. Tho
conferees appointed by the thrco con
ventions yestcrdny, reached an agree
ment today. Thoy decided tho name
at tho head of tho ticket should bo
"Democratic-People's Union Sliver
Party." The Populists aro accorded
thrco electors and tho nomination for
auditor-general. Tho thrco conven
tions will meet Iti Joint convention to
nominate a state ticket, tho Populists
and silver men together, to have a
representation equal to that of the

San Francisco, Aug. 20. Feeling
against tho Southern Paclllc Company
is intensifying among tho 15,000
wheelmen of San Francisco and 40,000
wheelman in the state, over there
cent decision of that company to
charge 25 cents for currying u bicycle
between any two points, and fort ux
ing bicyclists who cross the bay 10
cents for each wheel. A .boycott has
been declared on the Southern Pacific
by a large number of wheelmen and
tho others, it is said, will doubtless
take tho same course.
A mass meeting of wheelmen of
this city will be called soon for tho
purpose of taking action politically.
Tills is but tho beginning of tho
wheelmen's campaign against the

Tacoma, Aug. 20. There are 430
delegates to the Republican state con

today.ltwlllbe the largest convention
In the history or the state, but Is tn
many respects lacking In tho elements
or Interest that have been present at
previous conventions. There- will
be no fight on the platform, nnd thero
Is no clean-cut alignment of forces on
the question of candidates. Tho sit
uation Is altogether chaotic, and
there Is no prospect It will be made
very orderly .before tho balloting Tor
candidates begins. There will bo no
test vote on chairman or any other
question, so rur as at present appears,
before tho actual battle begins. Tho
truth Is that Interest In the fortunes
or the various candidates is apa
thetic. A singular tiling about the canvass
for the governorship Is that the de
legates as a body admltSullI van's per
sonal merits and his great clllclency
in campaign work for the party In tho
pastjbut thoy apparently do not think
ho Is a votc-gcttcr,and It Is.on tho con

the best vote-getter named. Precisely
the same objections aro urged against
and tho sumo claims advanced In be
half of Wilson.
