In conducting Its campaign for greater

the national government and other large
agencies: (1) That the national govern

effective the Information obtained and the
conclusions reached; (2) that each state
enact needed legislation and make ample

mining operations within Its borders; (3)
that the mine owner Introduce Improve

and reducing waste of resource as rap
idly a the practicability of such Improve
ments Is demonstrated, and (4) that the
miner and mine manager eo-operate
both In making and In enforcing safety
rule and regulations as rapidly aa theae
ar shown to be practicable. The state,
the miner and mine owners, and other
agencies, such aa the mining and engin
eering societies, are now showing a will
ingness to co-operate with th national
government In this work.

The bureau' Investigation relating to

fined to certain general inquiries and to
specific investigation dealing with such
topics as th wast from smelter and
other metallurgical planta, the waste In
the treatment of rare minerals and
metal and the waste In th mining and
utilisation of eoal.
A preliminary Inquiry a to the coking
of eoal In beehive evens ha shown that
the total value of the by-product an
nually lost In this country through the
us of such oven amount to 175.000.000.
Th annual wast of metals la brass

th prevention of wast of natural gas,

A novel feature of th exhibit Is th
system of lighting in use. It I said to
b an entirely new scheme, never before
used for art display tn th United States,
so far as known. . Th entire gallery la
lighted by two photographer's electrto
bulbs, each of 1,000 cgndlepower, made of
deep blu glass and with opalescent
shades a additional screens.
The combination of powerful light and
peculiar shades gives an effect mpre
nearly Ilk real daylight than Is usually
obtained for displays of paintings. It
enhancea the fine color effects la. the
pictures to a marked degree, and makes
them especially worth going to see., An
admission fee of 10 cents Is charged in
order to help defray the expense.
