I While it was predicted by many that
e rush i<> the Portland Canal distil would begin early, nobody looked
[i it commencing so soon.   The last
v*   boats which have come In  have
lined  more  passengers than  it   was
{pec ted  they   would  at  this  time of

rlenced  the   boom  of   1910  looked
the rush to begin the latter part

(However, those concerned  with the
ilein of tailing care of the visitors
[,. not  worrying, tor the sooner the

HAND SAMPLES
Lead mined Id the United States
dining 1919 totalled 12."..!)!)!) ions, a
shrinkage of 153,165 ions as compared
with i.e. I'M-, output, in' the national
lead output, the Coeur d'Alenes is
credited with 80,000 ions, or about one
fifth, inclusive of desilverized lead
Missouri contributed aboul one-fourth
of tlie national production.
A tendency to debase silver coinage
by introduction ot more alloy Is talked
of and in some cases noted, Canada
has just taken steps in that direction
by making the national silver coinage
standard al 800 parts line silver lo
200 parts alloy. Instead of 925 parts
fine silver lo T"  parts alloy.
New York advices states that November copper sales are estimated at
625,000,000 pounds, the biggest on record for any similar two months' period
since summer of J918. December sales
are estimated at .",00,000,000 pounds.
1 oo.000.000 pounds being exported.
Copper authorities are much encouraged over the transactions of the last
two months of the year, and state that
if sales continue at same ratio through
first quarter ��f 1020. the present ac
cumulation will have, been disposed of.
Brass makers are again in the market and there lias been an increase of
buying on foreign account.
Morton Frewen, one of Britain's
greatest economists and an expert on
silver, ami whn ten years ago was forecasting the silver situation as il exists
today, is authority for the statement
that the world's yearly demand for
silver in the next eight years will he
620,060,000 ounces, with a mlxlmnm
yearly   estimated   production of   not
over      175,000,000      ounces If      Mr.
I'rewen  is  right,  .tint  there appears
good   reason to  believe that   lie  is. one
wonders iusi where the silver required is in coin,, from, sin, e ihe greatest I
years  production ever recorded, that
ol   IW0, was 260,000,000 oun. .

Agitation for good roads is generally due to the plea that the agriculturist will be benefited. Sometimes that excuse is made by automobile
"fans" as a reason for a good roads campaign in certain sections where
said "fans" have designs on the speed limit.
This is all very well.    It is a most excellent thing to have the best of
i
roads In an agricultural area..    The horny-handed tiller of the soil gets
his produce to market easier, and as a result may help consumers in the
non-productive area, take a reef in the perennial H. C. L. The automobile
owner gets an extended area in which to demonstrate his ability to consume gas and show tire mileage records. The automobile agent sells
more cars, while the manufacturer has a greater output. The thintj is
eminently satisfactory to all, except an occasional taxpayer who gets no
direct benefit and who gazes suspiciously on a soaring assessment.
So much for a region strictly agricultural In a mining area there
appears to be no excuse for good highways except tonnage, and it has to
be a good big tonnage in any remote-from-railway-transportation section
before consideration or new or improved road construction is given by
state or county officials. Of course, if the mining area lies in the direct
path of transcontinental auto travel, the case is different. An example
of this is found in the case of Yellowstone National Park highway through
Shoshone county, Coeur d'Alene district. Being on a convenient transcontinental route, by reason of the pass across the Bitter Roots just east
of Mullan, work now in hand and to be completed will in a very short
time make it one of the model highways of the Pacific Northwest. As
far, however, as opening up new mining territory is concerned, the value
is nil. The valley through which the Yellowstone National Park highway winds is already adequately served by railways. While this is good
and in accordance with all modern ideas of progress, one cannot help
but feel .that additional good roads work in the more remote and less-
known gulches of the Coeur d'Alenes would result in great benefit to the
district and the state of Idaho by encouragement to new or long-retarded
mining enterprises.
The general tendency appears to be to allow prospectors and struggling mining development enterprices to shift largely for themselves in
the serious problem of getting in supplies and material and getting ore
out of a remote area. Poetically, we have been often reminded: "Many
a gem of purest ray serene, the darkest caves of ocean bear," and descending from a high plane of expression to prosaic and commercial min-
Tti2? jjar!a*-ce, we might add, within the limits of str+cl 'pi\--mety, that-
many a side-tracked gulch embraces a Bunker Hill, an Interstate Callahan.
or some other potential dividend producer, yet unknown, through lack
of anything in the shape of even primary transportation requirements.
