New Discoveries of Astonish-
ing Richness Being Made
Frequent in Oregon,
Nevada, and Cali-
Portland Ore., May 7. — One can
scarcely pick up a newspaper
published in the West nowadays
without finding a story of some
rich new mineral strike, in gold,
silver or copper. A day or two
ago, for instance, a man brought
into an eastern Oregon town a
hatful of gold ore which assayed
about $23,000 to the ton. The
hatful, taken from a new strike
in Oregon, represented,, but -one
day’s clean-up and was worth
Thorough exploration of the
mining industries of the West
will be made in the Mines and
Metallurgy building at the Lewis
and Clark Exposition. Displays
will be made by every state pos-
sessing mineral resources. The
California mineral exhibit will
be one of the largest and most
valuable. Nevada will be well
represented as will Oregon, Wash
ington, Idaho, Montana, Utah
and Colorado. Mining displays
are to be sent to Portland from
Midctle West and Eastern states.

TO ENGAGE IN FARMING
AND DEVELOPING OUR
Manufacturers’ Record: The
announcement from New York
of the establishment there, un-
der the supervision of Hon. E. J.
Watson, commissioner of immi-
gration of South Carolina, of a
branch bureau for the attraction
of immigrants to his State is
likely to be of far-reaching im-
portance not only for South
Carolina, but for the whole coun-
try. Mr. Watson is one the most
practical and energetic workers
for immigration that the South
has produced. Hardly a year in
the office of immigration commis-
sioner, he has already done most
effective work, and his latest
move may be expected to be
fruitful of beneficial results. He
is working for the industrial, ag-
ricultural and commercial devel-
opment of South Carolina; he
knows that for that men are
needed; and he has gone straight
to the place where there is a sur-
plus of men and where his efforts
to get a fair proportion of that
surplus for Soath Carolina ought
to be bountifully rewarded. But
not alone for South Carolina will
his work be done. His innova-
tion is bound to direct special at-
tention to the whole subject of
the immigration needs of the
tion of the right sort is called for
to supply the necessary labor for
farms and help for mills.
In agriculture and in manufact-
uring, in mining and in lumber-
ing and in many other lines of
wealth-producing endeavor the
South needs men. It cannot-de-
pend upon natural increase of
population, and must look to im-
migration for the solution of its
difficulties. Now is the accepta-
ble time for a long pull all along
the line to reinforce the work to
that end long carried on by the
railroads, by local organizations,
by State bureaus and by individ-
uals to place the right sort, of
men next to the right sort of
opportunities, many of them the
best in the world, the South
