NECESSITY FOR STUDY
ON EXPERIENCE gained by close
observation during the past four years we
dealt, last fall, in these columns, with the
advisability of engineers visiting the district for specific purposes, first of all acquainting themselves with its various systems of ore occurrences.
This should in no way be interpreted
as a reflection upon engineers, indiivdually or collectively but only as an attempt to
stress a point that appears to be too often
overlooked, with the result that many good
opportunities are passed up, only to be
taken advantage of some years later
by other people. There have been several
cases of this in the past, and unless a
closer study of the district is made by examining engineers, no matter how competent, there will be many more. This is by
no means an easy district to examine, or
to understand. There are complicated
conditions hard to find elsewhere, all of
which have to be taken into consideration
if an intelligent decision is to be reached.
Engineers visiting the district this
summer will have many opportunities for
study that were not available in the past.
Premier, Indian, Dunwell and Outsider,
each with its extensive underground workings, offer splendid opportunities for observation, for each presents a different
and yet, in seme respects, a similar problem, problems the examination and understanding of which would be most helpful.
On this point, in passing, the Big Missouri must not be overlooked. Consider the
years that have been spent on this property, more or less feeling around in the
dark, by many of the best, before a key to
the system was discovered. Why not benefit by tbe experiences of others? This
year there will be many other openings
that can be observed with profit; Glacier
Creek, Independence, Rufus, George Copper, Porter-Idaho, Fish Creek, Riverside, j
Daly Alaska, Eldorado and Cronholm-Bar- j
tholf. !
No  engineer  visiting  the  Portland!
Canal district this summer, could spend a!
more  profitable month than by,visiting,
with a view to understanding, the prob- j
lems presented on the above mentioned
properties.
In conclusion and substantiation���how many
engineers looked at, and walked away from, the
Premier, Indian, Dunwell, Outsider and Biy Missouri? Why? Because they did not understand
the mineralogical conditions of the district, therefore, how could they grasp tho situation on these
properties?
Experience has proven that it is a waste of!
time and money for an engineer to come to this]
district, relying on what he has read,  and exper-;
ience in other fields-, to go straightway and exam-1
ine a property.    In justice to himseif,   his principals and the property,   he should  first spend  at
least a month  making a study of  the openings
available.    The  knowledge thus gained  he will
find invaluable in making an examination.

Guy Lawrence, who sends and

down, came near being horribly
mutilated by an enraged printer
day before yesterday when he
visited the den that savors of
printink ink, ancient pipes and
gisoline. "What is the difference between a bootlegger and
a lawyer? asked Guy of the type-
sticking slave. "Why?" countered that smear-faced misanthropist. "One handles whiskey
by the bottle, and the other by
the case." This from Guy, as
he ducked a 72-point extended
Gothic cap M and-fled.
Yes, gentle reader, he made
up this conundrum all by his
own self. y
