METALS,   MONEY AND PROSPERITY
IT IS SIGNIFICANT that the con
traction in amount of national currency���
of gold or of paper backed by gold or something of tangible worth; something that
will buy anything and everything in the
marts of the world���is always coincident
with an economic decline and often a forecast of disaster. It is immaterial whether
or not the gold is in circulation. It matters nothing whether advantage is taken
of the government's promise to exchange
paper money for gold; inaction in this respect merely indicates that the people have
confidence in the national stability.
There is ample historical evidence to
show that the failure of mining or the
diminution in metallic reserves has been
the signal for economic decay. Ancient
Rome furnishes an excellent example. The
silver discoveries in Mexico  and  South
America had a very potent effect on the
countries themselves and also on the nations that absorbed the output. The rise
of Great Britain has been due largely to
the accumulation of metallic currency and
the success of mining operations all over
the globe; her decline in recent years has
been coincident with a diminution in metallic reserves. The economic chaos in
Germany may be traced directly to the absence of currency of international trading
value.
With the obvious facts in history available, it is difficult to appreciate the posi-
tiveness with which the abolition of gold
as a standard is recommended by some as
a cure for economic instability. Early in
1922 Mr. Ford suggested the issuanee of
national paper money, backed by nothing
more tangible than the undeveloped water-
power resources of the South.- More recently Mr. J. M. Keynes, well known as
the author of "Economic Consequences of
the War," has published another book,
"Monetary Reform," in which he affirms
that the gold standard is a "barbarous relic" that is now "remote from the spirit
and requirements of the age."
No logical alternative to the gold standard has been suggested, and those who
advocate its abolition would do well to
study history and note the close harmony
that has always existed between prosperity
and the accumulation of metallic reserves;
and, conversely, the chaos that has resulted from depletion. Of course, one may
say that the possession of gold naturally
indicates prosperity; but several economists ahd near-economists appear to argue
that national success may coincide with
an absence of tangible reserves.
Statistics on the mining," use and resources of gold, silver, copper, lead and
zinc will always offer a good index of national prosperity.���Engineering and Mining Journal-Press.

PLATINUM IN
ALICE ARM
Platinum has beet added to
the long list of minerals found in
the Alice Arm district, accorning
to the Herald. The discovery
was made by Archie McPhail,
who sent samples of ore south
for assaying. The samples were
taken from the Rex property
and the values obtained were
platinum $4.80 and gold $10.80
per ton. Previous assays had
gone as high as $17 in gold. The
ore carries 97 per cent silica.
This is, as far as is known, the
only ore sample in thi district toi
above the Baldy tunnel. A tunnel is now being driven from the
Baldy workings to strike the ore
vein now being mined, at a lower
depth, and when this has been
done increased shipments from
the mine will be made.
ALICE ARM MINING
HAS BRIGHT FUTURE
(Alice Arm Herald)
Although the prospects for the
operation of the Dolly Varden
mine are not particularly bright
for this year, due to entanglements of the owners, it is evident that several properties will
be operated this year.
The Homestake Mining Co. will
be assayed for platinum, and the
results obtained will undoubtedly |comraence development work on
their property as soon as the
snow is off and transportation
available.
The Keystone Mining Co.  will
also commence operations on the
Sunset property on Rour.dy creek j
as soon as supplies can be
in.
Several mining engineers,

Hyder residents celebrated
Deeoration Day, May 30, byj
clearing up the new cemetery
and grading a road in to it f rem
the main Salmon river road, thus
fittingly observing the day that
was originally set aside as a memorial to those Union soldiers
���who lost their lives in the civil
war1 during the early Ws, and
is observed in all the settled
communities by decorating the
graves of former soldiers and
sailors.
The town of Hyder was deserted, the women and children
making a picnic of the event,
while the men did the heavy
work of falling superfluous timber, taking out stumps and doing the necessary grading. At
noon everybody had a big outdoor lunch, in the preparation
of which Lon Doggett acted as
principal chef. A mammoth mulligan and a corresponding pot of
baked beans, vamp style, formed
the central attraction, but there
were the finer accessories, usually associated with social functions of the effete Outside, such
as ice-cream, angel-food cake,
nuts etc.
The new cemetery site is located on the gentle slope above
the "first rock cut" on the Salmon river road, about a mile
north of Hyder, and is a vast
improvement over the original ^DUWet
site set aside by the Forest Service, which is in the midst of
heavy timber on the river bottom, a mile further from town.
In anticipation of a new site being selected, Frank Johnson, who
died   last  winter,    was  buried
