To Commence Sending

According to T.V.Wilson, president and managing engineer of
the Eldorado, 1000 sacks of ore,
approximately 45 tons, will start
coming down from that property
by the 15th of August for shipment. The ore will be hauled
down Salmon glacier on double-

on it in the   very   near   future.

PURCHASE OF MINING PROPERTIES
WHAT should be paid for a new gold-
mining property slightly explored has always been subject to great difference of
opinion. What should be paid for a dormant mine is an equally hard nut to crack.
Past production may or may not be of sig
nificance.
Assuming that the property in ques- of plant and initial exploration costs could
main much the same in the minds of others
than mining men.   Some mining men also
do not appreciate the change-1 conditions.
For example, assume a Mother* Lode mine
in  California  consistently producing $5
per ton recoverable value.   The present
operating cost would be around $5 per ton,
assuming, let us say, an ore body of 10 ft.
average width.. The value of the property
would be practically nothing.   However,
under a labor and commodity index of one,
which represents the pre-war level of prices,  the corresponding  costs would  be
around $3.33 and the operating profit $1.67
per ton.   On the basis of ten years' life,
10 per cent return per annum, and 35,000
tons per year mined, the present value
would be somewhat less than $300,000.   If
the plant cost of $150,000 be subtracted,
the present value of the property upon a
purchase basis would be about $150,000.
Thus though this might have been a fair
price for such a property twelve years ago,
under existing conditions it would be an
absurd price.
Dormant mining property having a
speculative future can be purchased safely
only on a nominal price basis. A better
arrangement would be the payment for-
the property by a fractional part of operating profits each year. An equitable arrangement providing for the amortization

tion could be operated for a period of
years at the rate of 35,000 tons per year,
or 100 tons per day, and an operating
profit of $1 per ton made under skilful
management, it would require 2.85 years
to pay off a $100,000 purchase price, lf
the plant, development and initial expenses totaled a like sum, an additional 2.85
years, or total of 5.7 years, would be required to pay off the obligation of 200,000.
Under a labor and commodity index of one,
more than twice the operating profit could
have been made and the period for earning purchase price, development, and
equipment costs decreased by more than
one-half.
Although labor, supplies, freight, and
power costs have advanced to a marked
extent, compared with conditions in 1913,
ideas of the value of mining property re-
be readily worked out. Under present conditions in gold mining, it is better business for owners to take a chance on profits
if some one is willing to work the property rather than to let it lie idle or to ask
fantastic prices.
A politician's promises to the people are like
a wife promising her husband a Christmas present. The husband has to provide the money. So
do the people. Why make such a fuss about
handing back to the voters a little of what already
belongs to them.
The constant drop of water wears away the
roughest stone.
The constant gnaw of Towser masticates the
toughest bone.
The constant coming lover carries off the blushing maid.
And the constant advertiser is the one who gets
the trade.

BOND GRAZE
INJURES WEST
Maurice D. Leehey, the well
known Seattle attorney, who has
a larfe Alaskan clientelle, was
in Juneau on legal business recently and gave a talk before the
Juneau Chamber of Commerce
in which he made a strong plea
for the encouragement of honest speculative investments and
for confidence in "our own resources." The Empire quotes
Mr Leehey's speech at length,
which, in part, follows:
"The present bond buying
boom, or craze, is hampering
the development of the West and
of Alaska." said Mr Leehey.
For the first time in many
years, Mr Leehey said, money
for investment in developing enterprises, mining and other
kinds, is scarce. On the other
hand there is plenty of ready
money in the country. The savings banks have larger deposits
than ever. But these funds are
being invested not in mortgages
j and similar development paper->
but in bonds. Western money
is flowing to Eastern bond markets and being put into Eastern
seeuritics. Eastern capital formerly available for Western and

like the mining, real estate,
I farm land, irrigation securities
and oil stock booms, would soon
subside. He ascribed the source
of the craze for bonds to the
wartime bond selling campaigns
originated by W. G. McAdoo as
Secretary of Treasury, which he
characterized as a wonderful
work.
The preachments of thrift
have been carried to an extreme,
farther than is justified, he declared. Economy is advisable;
frugality is commendable, but
the deadest town in the world is
the one in which al! of its meney
is tied up in savings accounts.
"You have betn told of elderly
people in the East who have
achieved independence, comfortable incomes, through the fruits
of the savings and thrift. That
is not so. They are parasites.
They have earned nothing, achieved nothing from thrift. It is
their neighbors and friends who,
while the thrifty ones remained
at home, went West and orened
up new lands, built up communities and provided markets for
the Easterners who have really
achieved their independence for
them," he asserted.
He plead for intelligent  sup-j
port    of   "speculative   invest
ments."   Speculators, he  said,;
