. Mining for steel rails is a new Industry
but it is being, carried on profitably at Lib
erty, Tex.
Forty-six ysars ego, JO.000 tons of steel
rails .were purchased In England by a. syn
dicate of wealthy planters of this section
and a number of New Yflrkers associated
with them In a railroad proposltlqn up the
valley of the .Trinity river., y ,
The rails were, paid for . am) brought' .to
Galveston by water and. shipped up .the
Trinity river by barges, ' They were un
loaded Just below the town and piled on
the low bank of the river. The civil war
came on and the project waa abandoned.
The members Of ths company were either
killed In the war or lost their property, cr
were scattered until not one of them-has
been heard of for more than a quarter of
a century. . . , , . , .,
A big flood In the river occurred a .few
months after the rails bad been piled upon
Its banks and Were covered with a -heavy
deposit .of sand. .Th fact that the rails
existed Anally became a dim memory in
the minds of ths oldsr residents of Liberty,
and of lata years ths story of the ' dis
astrous project ' has been a mere legend.
The. river . shifted several hundred yards
during the years and more than thirty feet
of sand and . soli had been deposited -upon
the rails, leaving no trace whatever of
It was left. to T. K. Nichols, of Houston
to bring these rails to the light of 'day.
Several months ago he waa In Liberty on
a business visit, .when he chanced to meet
an' aged pegro, who was a. slave when
the valuable cargo waa brought over and
who was employed in unloading ths' barg.'S.
He told Mr. Nichols the story of the aban
doned railroad and said that the rails were
burled under msny feet of aand, .but he be
lieved he knew the spot where they ccld
be found. 1 '
Nichols made a quiet Investigation and
found that the story pf ths lost rsils Was
true. He eould find no claimants to the
property and he made a proposition to the
town of Liberty that if It would grant him
the franchise to recover the rails hs would
give the town tl for every $10 he mined
and sold. His proposition wss eagerly ac
cepted. No one thought he would be able
to locate the rails.
Under the guidance of the old negro-Mr.
Nichols began thla prospecting for the
hidden wealth. He used ground augers in
boring test holes.' Hs bored eight. seven of
these holes before rf found the rail .They
ley . thtrty-flve feet beneath the -surface
and the tame distance from the preeent
channel of the river. '
The discovery of the rail was but the
beginning of the labor of recovering them.
The sand was difficult to handle and when
the excavation had reached a point nSar
the rails the water from tha river broke
through and the pumps had to be em
ployed to dear the bole. - v

OYSTER BAY, Sept. s.-PresHlent Roose
velt participated today iu Mne Moth, anni
versary celebration of .Christ Episcupsl
church, which he attends during his sum
:..e.s here.
The keynote of Uie president' epee-n,
which occupied half an hour, and ' con-
eluded a series of four addresses, wss that i
the wealtn of the nation -must not be dls- i
regarded, but looked upon as the basis for
spiritual, development, clean living and civic
Virtues. , . . , '
The celebration was held In the church's
edifice, which beers the Hate -of 1705 on Its
corner stone. Admlnelon was by card-jid
limited to the church members and the
clergy. It was followed by a collation In
the parish hall, 'of which theh president
partook, and where he chatted freely with
the visiting clergy and church member. '
The speakers preceding the president
were. Rev. F. II. Wsahhurn. pnHtor of the
church, who grfye a historll sketch of
the organisation; Right Rev. Frederick
Burgees, D.D., bishop of 'Long Island, who
predicted one church for future genera
tions in America and that the episcopal;
Rev. W. Montague Geor of New York and
Rerv. George R. VandeWater of New Tork.
Address of the President..
.The president began, his speech with a
corroboration of Dr. Geer on the essential
need of religion In its broadest and deepest
sense, to tue welfare of the country. He
This' country would not be an' abode fit
for covlllsed men If It were not true that
we put our material civilisation, our ma
terial prosperity, as the only base upon
which to build the superstructure of the
higher spiritual life. Speaking here today
as a layman, 1 wish to emphasise the vital
importance or our people being taugnt to
realise that the highest value of Chris
tianity manifests Itself In the conduct of
those who profess It. I shall read several
versea from the end of the flrst chapter of
James: '
"But be ye doers of the word, -and not
hearer only, deceiving your own selves.
"For If sny be a hearer of the word snd
not a doer, he Is like unto a man behold
ing hla natural face In a glasn.
"For he behnldeth himself, and .goeth
his way and straightway forgetteh what
manner of man he was.
"Pure religion and undeflled. before God
and the Father Is this, to the father
less r.nd widows In their affliction and to
keep himself unspotted from the wot-ld."
It Is true that In many -things the ten
dencies at work among us today are evil,
but It Is true also that there are plenty
of other tendencies for good. ' I am not
prepared to assent to the statement that
we are much worse than we used to be,
but It Is not of Importance whether, as a
matter of academic belief we hold that
thlnga have grown better or wore. '
GrcAt Doty of Christ la as.
What is of vttsl importance is tat we
should be resolved to do all In our power
no waa well as In the future to make them
fetter, and It we are a unit in that belief
t Is open to us to differ In regard to the
other matter. -' 1 feel that there has been
a real growth in broad Christian charity.
I believe that the different creeds are in
the essentials In reality vital things, com
ing cloeer all. the time, because I think
theat they 'are grasping the' fact that the
way In which- they can best serve the Lord
la not by-warring against one another, but
by Jolnjng hands, in the .great struggle
againet ' unrighteousness in the. great war
for decency, for honesty, for clean living
in the home no. leas 4han In the nation...
The worth of any creed mum in the Ions
run' be- Judged largely' by the condnci of
those who profess ir.-.TThe-A most effHlv
service tor Christianity- that ,ciui jwaaibly
b given Is to show In actual lfftthHt those
who dw give-in. 'tjieincomlao ah
approximate expression te tbe, faith othfvt
Is In. them. I doubt if spy of us will be
able ' to give more"than-eilci approximate
expression', of .that' f alth :? netiert he lews, - we
can each, of ua strive,, in our copUuat' tol
show that the--Word la alive In us that
we sre striving to live tip to the essentials
of Christianity; a the brotherhood -of tkxl
snd the brotherhood, of, man -as-they-are
taught In the Bible, as they are preached
to as Sunday after Sunday. If Is-the con
duct of tha. average. Christian, not on Sun
day, but on week days: net In the church
alone, but In hla' family and In his rela
tions to his neighbor and to the stste. that
will jnare than anything else determine In
the eyes of the general public the worth
of the creed that man professes.
Gospel af Right Living.
This applies m little things as much as
In big things.. It applies in-the little things
which In their. sum are so big. Tbe man
is not a good Christian If his domestic con
duct Is such that whtm he 'returns to his
home and hie -wife -end children feel un
easiness at his having, coma.. Tha man is
net a good Christian who In his buHlneea
dealings falls to remember' that It Is in
cumbent upon him to-hold -a hhxher stand
ard than bla. fellows,, that it la incumbent
upon him.' If he Is a very rich man. to
make It evident alike In the Way he earns
and the way he spends his fortune that the
word of the Lord la to Jlm a living truth
and pot a dead doctrine,, And, of couise,
what 1 say applies even more strongly to
the man in public life.' '-'
The nominal chnraoter. the man who has
sttended to all. the outward observances
of Christianity ' with, no matter what
scrupulous care, who nevertheless em net
tles trust funds is more, not less, to blame
or worthy than if he had never made pro

Decision of Minnesota -Court Clean Up
Title to Valuable Iron Mines.
Deal -Which Has Bee a Pendlaar 'for
Three Years Ejected to Be
t'oasammated Within
Few Weeks.
NEW YORK, Sept. a. The receipt of the
decision handed down ' yesterday fy' the
supreme court of Minnesota In the Vir
ginia silver mine case, which la regarded
ss definitely establishing the rights of the
Ureat Northern railway In the leaite of cer
tain' ore lands from the .state, caused a
report In Wall street today that the long
delayed ' agreement between the Great
Northern and the I'nlted States Steel cor
poration for the (esse and operstion of the
so-called Hill mines In the Luke Superior
district,' waa soon to be announced. In
quiry, showed, however, that most of the
important- officials of both corporations
were absfnt from the city today and will
not return until next Week." Rven'then it
was estlmsted, there sre many detslls yet
to be arranged some-of vital Importsnoe.
The court decision, however, removes one
of the obstacles to the proposed agreement,
for the constitutionality of the -law under
which trie-Great Northern had secured
leaseholds of many of Its ore lends hsd
been celled ' Into question.

'The negotiations of the Hill ore holdings
have been pending for nearly. three years
snd several times have been reported nesr
a conclusion. The steel . corporation, al

In the Iike Superior district, through Its
Oliver Iron Mining company,, has been
anxious. It Is reported, to secure the Hill
properties sa a sort of reserve, thus ss-surlna-
Itself of s longer life snd siding In
cutting out possible serious competition.
To guerd sgslnst . the properties belng

be ineressed yesr by ' year until they
amounted te ft a ton. The minimum nut
pot also wss to be Ineressed yesrly and l
wss further stipulated In the early negntls

should haul sll ths Ore to Duluth dorks at

Propositions by the sleet corporation and
counter proposltlona ' by the Hill Interests
have been made from time to time, with
variations of the lrmi, ss above outlined.
Ore Properties Valaable.
The Hill lands are claimed to be second
In value only to thoae of the Oliver Iron
Mining company. The few Great Northern
properties which are not being worked have
been leased to various mining companies
on terms similar to those offered the steel
corporations. Moat of the Hill holdings
are, however, aa yet unexplored, and It la
said that any estimates as to their value

Tbe annual royalties and profits to the
Great Northern from the haul of the oVe tu
the Lake Superior docks cannot be esti
mated, although Mr. Hill Is endeavoring to
approximate the result by fixing a mini.'
mum quantity of ore to be turned out each
year. In case the steel corporation ahoulg
not see fit to work the mines to theextenl-'
agreed upon It would be compelled undei
the terms offered to pay to the railroad
company an amount equal to the royaltlea
on the minimum yearly output. This mini
mum output Is variously estimated at from
6.000,000 to 10.000,000 gross tops per year,
the latter figures being Insisted upon by
the Great Northern after a certain number
of years has elapsed. v
