What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

THE LUMP CITY MINER: LUMP CITY, MONTANA. e Mining Company Stores and Boarding Houses, There ia trouble brewing between the Miners' Union and the firoadvvater rompany at Neihart, and there is some talk of shutting down the mine. The story of the trouble as near as can be learned is about as follows: Several months ago the management of the company started up a company store and boarding house. The foreman of the mine notified the 150 employees that the family men were to trade at the store and that the single men wore expected to board at the company's house. This was not only unpleasant information for the miners, but raised consternation among the merchants of the town as the Broadwater is the only mine now employing any men, and the employees constituted a large portion of their customers. The Miners' Union finally took the matter up. About this time John E. Searles, of New York City. the principal owner of the Firoadwater, appeared on the scene, and a committee from the miners called upon him and stated their greivances. Mr. Searles in- formed the committee that the trouble would be remedied, as he was in the mining and not inercantle or hotel busi- ness, and notified the men that they could board and trade where they pleased without prejudive to the com- pany. This was satisfactory to the min- ers. But the representativel at the mine did not carry it out, but gave the men to understand that it would be to their advantage to continue patronizing the company's establishments. The result was that the Miners' Union called a meeting and declared a boycott on the company. There were some 70 boarders and all but a few left the boarding house, and the business at the com- pany's store ceased. The management under these circumstances declared that they would close down the mine, and nearly all the men Were laid off, and it is stated that as fast as possible the mine will be closed down. Meanwhile the Union remains firm and the incr chante have declared their intention of standing by the men in their protest against corporation stores or hoarding houses. The closing of the Broadwater mine will be quite a blow to Neihart, as the montly payroll was over $12,000. However, be this an it may, the of com- pany stores and boarding houses 'ere things of the past, and the closing of them in all instances, only where abso- lutely necessar, t , be commended by all. Mexico Will Tax American Capital. Mexico is about to adopt a new plan for raising revenue), by taxing all silver and geld mines in that country being worked by Americans. Finance Minis- ter bimantour first suggested the plan to the budget committee awl the latter accepted it and presented it to the chamber of deputies as a part of the federal revenues for the current year. The proposed tax is estimated in the budget to yield $2,275,000, which makes it the third item of importance in Mex- ican revenues. The new tax is to be called \Extraction Tax.\ It is 2 1 4 per cent on silver and 3',Ï per cent on gold. It is to be paid on every share of the two precious metals, rough or refined. Col- lection is to be made at the metallurgi- cal offices on such metals as are of local use and at the point of export on metals sent abroad. These extraction charges are in addi- tion to the charge for coining and mint- ing. There are no exemptions, even in case of special concessions or zones, granted by the government. Another prospective change affecting American interests is likely to result from the sil- ver lead ore item of the last United States tariff act. It is not improbable that the American rate of half a cent a pound on lead contained in silver ore will be re -imposed by Mexico. The rate was reduced to three-quarters of a cent a pound by the United States act. Pro- vision was added that in case a foreign country should impose import duty up- on silver orei containing lead exported to the United States from such country, then the duty upon such ores when im- ported from such country, ¡khan remain as fixed by law In force prior to the pas- sage of this act. It is under this pro- vision that the Mexican law is likely to be °bunged Where Our Wealth Goes. There is much surprise maifested by Eastern people that the taxable wealth or igetana is se insignificant when com- pare .i , kith the value of the gold, silver and ..opper produeed aneually. This is email pinined. Nearly all the great prod are owned by foreign corpo- rations or non-resident Americans and consequently all or nearly all the divi- denda pass out of the state. If it were not for this, wonderful drainage Mon- tana would soon be as remarkable for its taxable wealth we it now is for no mineral product. The forego:sing, how- ever, aro not by any means the only drain upon M , mtnt11.1 . 1;i w»41th Or the eel* ranee if ttp. .11- PilarlOy. It 111 within safe houn.ltt to say that Vic) milltion and p half cire sent to Europe every year by the miners, profits of their labor. This, if Invested here for ten years would make a vast difference in our taxable wealth. Then there is ten mil lion moro that is sent out for merchan- dise, including animal pr, )(biota -animals intended for home consumption. These figures explains what becomes of the vast wealth that is extracted front the mines of this State. When the field is looked over dispassionately one cannot but be amazed that there is so inuah wealth within the reach of the tax gath- erer. This drain has been going ou for 33 years. If all the wealth that has been taken from our mines had remained here we could show up a tax list that would astonish the world with its mag- nitude. Denver Mining Exposition There are thousands of persons in the East who have money invested in West ern mining property, and to this class of persons the coming Mining and Indus- trial Exposition will appeal very strong ly, says the Denver Mining Review. These people read of new mechanival, chemical and electrical processes for the treatment of ores, but can come to no clear understanding of them. At the Exposition all these various methods will be shown in practical operation, and a few (lays spent in examining them will give the visitor more available in- formation than he could obtain in months of reading. And there will be the further advantage that these pro- cesses will not be in the hands of glib showmen, but ot practical operators. It is one thing to be shown a machine in a warehouse a thousand miles from a mine and told what it will do, and quite another thing to see the same machine doing its work in the presence of rivals and subject to the criticism of experts. The best manufacturers will gladly come to Denver to exhibit, for it will enable them to extend information in regard to their practical operators who can thus be personally reached in ono of the principal mining sections of the country and near the mines. Denver is con- stantly increasing in importance as a depot for paining supplies, and its deal- ers can largely extend the sale of what- ever articles they undertake to handle. It is already apparent that the Expo- sition will prove to be the greatest min- ing event that has taken place in this country. It appeals irresistibly to all the great mining states, and every min- ing camp. The business of mining will be upon dress parade in one of the finest cities of the country, which bee been built almost entirely from the products of the mines. Denver itself is an ob- ject lesson in the profits of mining. • Around the mining display as a cen- ter will be grouped a comprehensive showing of the other great industries and resoireee of the mountain states, a eection including more than one-third of the entire Union, and teeming with limitless possibilities. The procese of ir- rigation by which hundreds of millions of acres of the arid regions are to be converted into the most productive of farms and gardens, affording homes and comfort to millions of people, will be shown in such a manner as to demon- strate their practicability. To these great industrial features will be added a thousand and one incidental alloyed, forming a metal which from its color and luster, is called \gold alumi- 111-11n.\ The metal is really aluminum bronze, which contains from 5 to 10 per cent of aluminum alloyed with copper. The list of eluininum manufacture» in eludes, among other articles, oil cups for engines, faucets, cocks and valves, bed steads, incandescent, lamp shades, bicycles, dog collars, lanterns and skates. School books, slates, slate pencils, ink, pens, penholders, blanks, arithmetics, readers base ball goods and all descrip- Lou of stationery, envelopes, etc., for sale at the MIN KR book store. Novels, histories, magazines, papers and period- icals. Until the disastrous tide of gold mon- ometallism has been stayed, the only possible salvation for this country lies in the development of its gold mines.
