Of len limes the question hits been

from the reports that ate beard nf rich

reasiio why lhe ledges which are found
ut Cninp Hewitt should not. extend

prospecting would show that such is
lhe ease. No doubt lhe future will
solve this problem.

Spokane Mining Exchange Closed.
The Spokane Chrniiicle discussing the
cause which led up In lhe closing ofllie
Spokane Mining Exchange says;—At
first thuuirliL it, would seem thul. the
proposition to close tbe Spokane Mining
Exchange mennl that, the mining Interests in this Immediate vicinity were
on the wane, hut upon a closer inspection it will he fnund that exactly the
opposite is true. Tbe cause uf lhe general disapproval of the exchange seems
to he that the organization appears to
have been manipulated lutho disadvantage of lbe small stockholders and
mine owners.
Whether these rumors are based upun
facts or nut isa mullet-of conjecture.
It is I rue thai suine stocks which seemed
to be steadily increasing in value have
apparently heen un the decline since
first the exchange was Inaugurated,
and the owners nf these respective pi-o-
perties have been leaving no stone
unturned tu arouse public sentiment
against the continuation of the exchange and their efforts have Anally
been crnivned with success, as is evident frum the fact that, the doorsof
the mining exchange ure closed for an
"indefinite period."
While this action may haven tendency tu cause suine tn think that the
mining industry is not su promising
and flourishing us of yore, thusii who
are throughly conversant, with the inside facts predict, that, such action
means much fm- the future of the mining interests in Ibis part nf the Northwest uud they seem tobeverysaiiguiiie
iu there expectation that tins is hut
the beginning of a revival iu the development of the niines tributary to
Spokane. Whether or not, lliese predictions are based upun fads or fancy
remains to he seen. It is to be hoped
thai the expectations will be realized
to the fullest extent and that no obstacle whatever will be permitted lo
retard tin wonderful development of
our  mines which   thus far has heen
phenomenal.
