Mollie went around saying, "How do you

because Mr. Deerlng, whom she doesn't

terribly confused, and faltered that he had

The thirteenth annual session ot the
American Mining congress opens today In
Los Angeles, Cal. Many prominent public
men will be there. In addition to the usual
contingent of mining authorities who at
tend these annual congresses. Numerous
Important questions will com up for con
sideration, one of the most interest ing
of which relates to the safety of miners.
Other matters to be discussed are the new
Kurrau of Mines, conservation as applied
to mining, workman a compensation, min
ing ln etiment. the oil Industiy, uniform
mlniiiK legislation, and the tncieased use
of silver. The mining congress lias ac
cumulated such a large amount of mining
literature that It has been thought wise
to establish permanent headquarters. Such
headquarter have been opened at Den
ver. Ureat progress has been made In mining
conditions since the last meeting of the
congress. TUe national government uii
authorised the establishment of a buieau
of mines and many of the states have em
barked upon a program of legislation look
tit the proper safeguarding of miners. Illi
nois, the first to take up mine rescue
work, has appropriated JO.OOu for the pur
posce of carrying forward this great hu
manitarian activity. Thirty thousand dol
lars of this aum is to be used for the
construction of station buildings, H2.&00
for their equipment and $7,200 le to be re
served for contingencies. In the appropri
ation for the work allotted to the federal
bureau of mines. $.14,000 is to be used in
equipping new rescue stations and $10,000
for additional equipment in stations al
ready established. Another $40,000 Is made
available for the study of explosives used
In mines. $14,000 for the study of electricity
aa applied to mining and $8,000 for experi
ments with device for preventing mine
Several rescue stations for miner already
have been established by the federal gov
ernment. One "of these Is at Huntington,
w. Va.. In the center of the West Virginia
mining district; another at Birmingham,
Ala., in the heart of the Alabama coal re
gion; another at Wilkes Bat-re. Pa., con
tiguous to the many big mines in that sec
tion. Other at Billing. Mont., and In
Utah have been planned and oon will be
In operation. What a fire department is

training school at the rescue station. Here
the miners who are detailed to attend the
school will be taught the lessons of pro
tection from mining dangers and lay the
foundation for Imparting this knowledge to
all miner engaged within the district.
The recent great catastrophe at Cherry,
III., where many miners lost their lives,
may prove to have been a blessing In dis
guise. A number of millers were cut off in
a Bmall chamber. They closed the opening
leading to the main part of the mine and
were thus able to keep alive for many days.
and were finally rescued. This has led
mining engineer to make a careful study
of the possibility of constructing refuge
chambers In all actively worked mines. It
Is estimatd that by an outlay of $10,000 a
sufficient number of such chambers could
be constructed to make the average mine
safe for the miner. If this Idea shall prove,
under actual test, to be satisfactory, it Is
certain that the government will eventually
enact a law requiting the establishment of
such havens of refuge. Just as It haa re
quired air-brakes and automatic couplers
on the railroad.
At Birmingham, Ala., the Crittenden,
Home association, organized for the care
of disabled miners, and of the widow and
orphans of those who have lost their
Uvea In mining accidents, Is preparing to
erect a home at a coet of from $H0.000 to
$100,000. Each miner In the district is to
contribute $1 to the project at the outset,
and to pay $1 a year thereafter for the

The Importance of the mining Indus try-

being almost nothing, and many an editorial
writer was constrained to comment upon
the low price put upon Alaskan coal in
place by the Geological Survey. A a mat
ter of fact, however, this Is u price rela
tively higher than Is paid for bituminous
coal In the Pennsylvania and West Virginia
fields. The calculations of the survey show
that one-half cent a ton means front $.V
to $o00 per acre for the land underlaid with
coal In Alaska. Land In the eastern part
of the United States recently waa sold for
as little as one-thirteenth of on cent per
ton for the coal underlying It.
During the last year there has been much
discussion among mining eugineeia as to
the ultimate source of the mineral deposits
Of the earth. Suhie have believed that
minerals are of deep-seated origin, grad
ually working themselves toward the sur
face, in the evolution wrought by time.
Uihers have contended that they have com
from the locks by a sort of leeching pro
ofs. Still others have claimed that they
come directly from the sea. The most re
cent view seem to be that the majority
of minerals are of celestial origin rather
than terrestrial. It la pointed out that
the earth is constantly traveling through
great masse of star dust, which, though
invisible to the human eye, Is perprtuaUy-
falllng to the earth. We see the big meteo
Ites, but the amount of mineral brought
down by the them Is small In comparison
to the constant showers of microscopic
dust that falls. Sometimes we are aware
of the presence of this dust when It form
the nucleus of hail stores. It Is claimed
by some authorities that In every ruin
drop there Is a tiny bit of dust around
which the water has been able to gather.
The celestial original of minerals I fur

arctic snows there, are found deposit of
nickel, Iron, cobalt, copper and other min

origin. In desert region and on high
mountain iveaks, where a rarlfied atmo
sphere I found, meteorite showers are wit
nessed almost any nlpht It is assumed
that these showers occur a freouently In
other regions, but that they merely escape
attention. Likewise the great frequency
of meteorite In desert region I explained
by the fact that the condition are not
favorable to their disintegration. It Is con
cluded that equally as many meteorite
fall In other region, but they do not re
tain their Identity for such great period
of time. It wa estimated not long ago by
one of the leading astronomer that from
15,000.000 to 20000.000 meteorites enter our
atmosphere every day, and that thl rate
kept up through loni? centuries of time
would account for the known areas of
mineral in the earth.
One acarcely can find the earliest date
at which metals of one kind or another
were first used by man. Our flrat glimpse
of the race gives us a picture of the stone
age. when a man was Indeed little mora
than "brother to the ox." Then we come
to the copper age. and thl in turn by the
Iron age. The bronze age was made possi

him who carried weapon of atone. I-ater
