considered just as rich. All these
creeks take their rise from a high rauge
of mountains, about (1,000 feet high,

Al! true. Socialists at-rree with you in
the matter of discussing llie question
from a rational standpoint, and approve
of tlie suppression of the counterfeit
article, which is too frequently accepted
as 1 (*■<■■;*, 1 tender. But when yon discuss
tlie broad question of Socialism, from
the narrow lodge of controversy instead
of tlie higher plateau of reason and
common sense, you will admit, along
with the t,|-ite Socialist, that the principles advocated by them are mostly the
spurious ones which you occupy so
much of your valuable time in condemning. Why, you are a Socialist

You either assume ton much, or are
ignorant of the fundamental principles
of true Socialism, when you assert that
"many Socialists believe that they can
bring about the reformation of the. nation without, pr before the reformation
of the people." Before attempting to
reply to this assertion, I would like to
ask: Do the conditions produce the
reformation of the individual, or does
the reform of the individual change the
conditions? In reply to my own query,
I would niOBt emphatically assert that
the former is beginning to be recognized
as the true solution of the question For
the last '2,000 years the world has been
experimenting with the latter scheme,
and is attempting to develop the individual. What has been the resulty It
has been (as has often been pointed out
by the teachings of the New Denver
Ledck and Lowery's Claini) making
man one-sided and produced the in
equalities, from which we are. at tlie
present time suffering, when the whole
of the world's wealth is controlled by
about 18 per cent, of the people and the
remaining 82 per cent are in virtual
slavery to the minority. Individualism
is responsible for this condition, which
is essentially bad, and equally cruel.

demand for sacrifice, for your fellows,
but which you erroneously describe as
"unpopular with the. average Socialist "
Your denunciation is unjust, because
it does not apply to the question at

of the matter recognize fully that to

"Wholesale   Morohanta,
silver-lead ores in this country, The
Missouri producers of soft lead—carrying no silver—have, probahiy been consulted, though no mention of the fact is
made They ought to be contented,
since even the reduced price should
leave them a very satisfactory margin
over the cost of producing their lead.
"It appears probable that the reduction in quotations is a wise, one The
price has been too high, reaching very
nearty the point which the tariff per
usitB without making iuipmis or foreign
lead profitable. The prices paid for
lead in ores stimulated production beyond the probable limits of consumption, and threatened a congestion of the
market with its possible consequences.
To check production by lower prices is
an easier and better plan than a simple
refusal to take over,which would naturally cause much discontent among the
miners and cause, opposition to the
present management of the business.
As it has lieen made with the approval
of representatives of the larger mines,
there will probably be no friction over

Several Eastern smelters are making
arrangements to substitute, oil for coal

"The substitution of oil as fuel in the
smelters is the next step in cluapening

the smelters instead of being located in
