A force of eighteen men has been

open-cutting and in general preliminary
work which has given gratifying results. Recent surface work disclosed
stringers of very high grade silver ore,

self-sustaining.    For which  latter everybody may be thankful.
Few hospitals pay their owni
way.    When they do, it usually ;
means there is sickness and ac- j
cident that is not normal. There-!
fore, it is pleasing to find that
the local institution does not pay
But, it must be  maintained for IflajflapreniCni
protection.
Nobody should realize this
more than mine operators, for
they know that when (men understand hospital protection is
within easy reaeh they are more
likely to remain contented on the
job. Consequently, operators
ought to pay a proportion of the
maintenance cost.
Under the present system the
men pay $1 a month for the local hospital in addition to the 30
cents a month which is deducted
for payment into the Workmen's
Compensation fund.
The operators pay nothing.
During the past year the people of the district, principally
those in town, raised seventeen
hundred dollars for the hospital.
In spite of every economy there
is a deficit of eleven hundred.
That money will have to be
raised, and more, to keep the
institution through the winter.
It is up to everybody to dig, and
especially the operators who've
only been long on promises thus
far.
