miner pays $1.00, each month to the
doctor. For'litis cansideration he is
compelled to furnish and equip a hospital, ■ two. nurses.and all medic ne
needed in the camp. Though' the
camp is now well "filled, the .balance
left over, after - all the > necessary expenses are met,' is a there bagatelle, to
