Nearly every prominent republican and democratic daily one picks up these days contains deop Mack lines and a few figures, which they designate as "Tariff l'ictures," each one endeavoring to illustrate the side of a question, which to them, appears to be the vital question for the people of the United States todeterniine. These 'pictures" llrst appeared in the New York Press, the orjran of the republican national committee, and was immediately afterwards taken up by other journals of both republican and democratic proclivities. Each one is striving hard to impress the voters that the taritf is the tiling that is making them rich or poor, just as the case may be, and endeavors to demonstrate the problem by the use of lines, long and short, and very black. The Mixkii believes that it i.s an agreed combination between the leaders of both parties in making this sort of a campaign, in order to divert the minds of the people from the real issue of the day. It also believes that the tariff question is sectional, and Impossible to settle with any degree of satisfaction to the whole Nation. It also believes that with the tariff entirely eliminated from American politics, and the financial question discussed and made an issue, that the wrongs now being complained of so bitterly and with just cause, too, would right themselves. The money question is one that has long been uppermost in the minds of "Wall Street manipulators, while to all outward appearances hut little attention was given it. For the last four national campaigns the tariff was all that one heard discussed by political speakers, and the minds of the people were diverted from the real cause of the hard times, until all at once almost everybody realized that perhaps, after all, the tariff did not have so much to do with it. liut the awakening came almost too late. The money power had its tenacious grip fastened upon nearly all of us, and our struggles to release the hold evidently aroused us from a stupor to learn the real cause of our burdens, and after carefully analyzing the situation we came to this conclusion: That 65,- 000,000 people can not dolmsincss yvith less money than 40,000,000 could, and experience anywhere near as good times, no matter what the ad valorem duty on imported articles may be; that with only one standard, and gold at that, we would soon be reduced to serfdom from w hich only a revolution would liberate us: that wc needed more money in circulation, and less sophis try about our great and only financial policy. The Mixkh believes there is a way out of this dilliculty, and that it can be traveled with safety to all business enterprises and without the aid of an inflated currency. The question that lias most perplexed the financiers of the age has been howtogetthe money in circulation after once coined. Or, in other words, how to get the surplus money in the Treasury intocircnlation. Our idea is to allow the man with nerve enough to brave the perils of mining to carry his bullion to the mint and receive sii.yeii uollaks in return for every 1)87 grains of silver he may have, and make this same silver dollar legal tender for all debts, pub lic and private. This plan would in crease the amount of the circulating medium many millions each year; give employment to many idle hands; in crease the value of farm products, and enable the people to pay the existing tariff without one murmur or word of complaint. Then, instead of a dreary picture, it would be one pleasant tocontemplatc, and one each one of us would gladly carry home with ns to brighten our liresides and cheer the humble but honest lmincs. " Tariff 1'iet ures" have no place in American polities until the present monetary swem undergoes a radical change. THE PROSPECTOR. The season of extensive prospecting lias come atid in the hills of the Tintie district are beginning to swarm with that class of hardy pioneers and t rail makers known in the mountains and of the west as prospi-ctorsSuae of these will st rike it rich: others will be fairly successful; w bib- the j.rreaf majority will lie disappointed this season only coiiM-qneiie- root-hill- s - to commence he same toilsome voca- tion, with renewed hope and energy when the show disappears from the hills next, season.

John Beck prospected here, where Eureka now stands, as a very poor man. The result of that prospecting is now visiand ble in the great Bullion-Bec- k Champion mine and John Beck is still at Its head. This one circumstance Is a sufficient encouragement for an army of prospectors, especially if their field of operations Is on the great mineral belt of Tintic. The prospector is as necessary to the opening; up and development of our vast mineral regions, as is the It n who clears the forests, or the ploughman who first breaks the prairies of the great agricultural districts. In conclusion we wish the hardy, intelligent prospectors of Tintio all the success during the present season which they anticipate, and which they so richly deserve. TINTIC'S MINERAL ZONE. James McLaughlin lias the whim In operation on the King James, in Ruby Hollow, and is now sinking the shaft. Geo. Naylor has recently uncovered a large body of lead ore on bis claim, just east of Silver City, on which he is now sinking a shaft. -- Frank Azzalia has opened up a cozy barbershop, close to L. E.

John Ilardwicke is driving a tunnel on the Daniiflcare. This property is in a fine location and looks exceedingly well. With very little work it is expected that the mine will become a shipper. L.

T. ami is a of Mr. Gear in Eureka, Is tn the city. sists that Tintic is Utah's Leadville. Miners throughout the territory are becoming convinced of the advantage of leasing their property to some one wno win develop it. Three hundred men are working on The the property of the Bullion-Becmine netted $400,000 last vear, whieh output will be considerably increased in IS'JI. It is a little bit peculiar that all the prospectors who return to Salt Lake from the Deep Creek districts bring flattering reports, and all who return to the cmps throughout the territory bring bad ones. One of the most sensible remarks on mining was that recent.lv made by John Q. Packard, when he said that "a mine was like a farm and had tone worked the same way. You couldn't reap what you had not sown, or take out ore until the drifts were run." The Eureka Hill is worked on this policy, the reserve always being months neaa or the production. About the most contradictory re ports on the condition of any mine in the territory are those which come from tha Mammoth. These are the two extremes: ''The mine is nlaved out and will never be any good again." and ''the mine has more ore in sight than It ever had before and is the big gest property inthecountry. Neither one of the statements are correct. From the rlbuno. Profeusor M. E. Jones is in the Been Creek country in the interest of the Kio (irande western Railway Company. This looks as if that company Intends building a road there. A real estate agent yesterday re ceived a letter from Boston making Inquiries about mining matters in Tintic and the Deep Creek country. This jhow that those districts are getting advertised in the East. The gentleman ought to read the Miner and thereby keep informed. J Geo. Arthur Rice sold eight tons of Sunbeam ore Wednesday for $383 net. The Sunbeam is located in the porphyry belt of Tintic, near Silver City, where good mines were not looked for until lately, and wheregood ore strikes are now being made everv few days. This suggests how the ideas of mining men have undergone changes through actual demonstration and experience the past few years. It was once thought that the ore bodies in Tintic were all in lime, but now the porphyry belt has become quite popular among mining men.
