It with pleasure that the Western people read the reports of silver agitation in European countries, anil observe the interest taken in this question by Europe's most widely known financiers. There is a general shaken-irigupthe dry bones of the gold bugs in consequence, and they are driven to the most perplexing extremities to counteract the influence of the agitation of this now most important question. It is becoming more and more apparent each day that there is not a sufficient amount of money to tran sact the business of the world on the basis it should be done on, cash, so is the fact that there is not, nor is there any likelihood of gold becoming plentiful enough to supply the in creasing demands. With this fact be coming recognized silver at once be gins to climb upward. With all the talk by the advocates of a gold standard that silver can never be anything but a "commodity" in a financial point of view, when there is a short ness of gold they all turn back and look upon silver as the only metal with which to relieve the depression. The English financiers are becoming alarmed at the scarcity of gold, and silver is being talked of to supply the demands of trade! Germany, too, is not adverse to having silver added to her volume of currency, as also is Austria, Portugal and many ot her European countries. The amount of gold produced today Is nowhere near sullieient to supply the demands of these countries, and they are compelled to seek other metals to take its place in the avenues of trade, and silver is at once recognized as the most available. With this being the fact, is there any question but what in a very short time silver will be on a a parity with gold as a cireidating medium the world over? It is hound to come, and is only a quest ion of a verv short time. is MINING NEWS. Mining is the great industry of this section of Utah ; without the mines we would practically be bankrupt. Therefore, the Mixkb differs with those who think the paper contains too much mining news or is too prolix and persistent on the merits of the silver question. Too much cannot be said about the mines. We are aware that many exaggerated statements are made about mines, which may lead those who investigate to believe that most of the statements are false, but the facts do not support such a conclusion. Newspaper reports are rarely inaccurate where a representative of a journal speaks from personal knowledge. The aim of the press is to give news and not to perveit facts. There would be little capital invested in our mines If newspapers had kept their wonderful wealth away from the knowledge of the world. Few mines can be developed or successfully worked without the aid of capital, and those who have money to invest in such enterprises are generally on the alert for an opening for investmenthence they care"ully scan the columns of the local mining papers for the purpose of learning of new strikes. To those who have mines or good prospects the Miner would say: Give all the information you can in regard to them, but tell the truth, and the Misicit is ready to publish your story, so that in a very short time it will catch the eye and invite the attention of every mining man in the country. INCORPORATION. The questi tn of whether or not it is time for the residents of Eureka to incorporate the town and thereby secure the benefits and privileges of a local government, as provided by law, should at once receive the serious consideration of every property holder who is interested in the welfare of himself, his family, or the district generally. The Minek can see no valid reason why the sentiment of in corporation should not prevail; and, certainly, as every resident can testify, there are numerous reasons to commend the move to popular favor. Without mincing words, it may be said that the streets and alleys in our town are in a disgraceful and most unhealthful condition, and that this very disagreeable state of affairs will necessarily exist until some regulations other than thoie from Xephi can be presented by local authorities who will have full control of the city and the power requisite to enforce sanitary measures. The great need of an organized fire department, and the reductidn of the present high rates of insurance, entitles the matter to the immediate consideration of every business man. In an interview with Mr. George Arthur Rice, the other dav, that gentleman, who is thoroughly posted on the outside feeling toward us, gave as hisopinion that the greatest drawback to the pro: perity of Eureka and its advance ment In connection with the commercial world, that the town was not yet incorporated. It is that life and property will be better protected and under more watchful care by organizing municipal government than under the present county system. There can be no argument on the question of taxes the difference will be that the taxes paid by Eureka will be largely expended for the benefit of Eureka. That is the policy the MiXEit believes in, no matter whether our Xephi friends like it or not. Let us incorporate. extremely anxious to enter the arena with some distinguished advocate of the gold standard. Senator Stewart is probably the lest known and most distinguished advocate in favor of the free coinage of silver in the United States. He desires that the arena for discussion of this great question shall be New York, and that his opponent shall be a leading financier. Almost ever since the adjournment of Congress, Senator Stewart has spent his time In New York. He has bearded the lion in his den, as it were, and has entered the counting rooms of this great financial centre and discussed the silver question with ourmonomet-alists- . He has told them that free coinage is bound to come, and that they may as well make up their minds to it. He claims that if the people were familiar with the subject the great majority of them would hold views similiar to those prevailing in the south and west. He declares that the newspapers of the east have refused to recognize the importance of this great subject, which he claims to be the foremost public question now before the people of this country, and one that will determine the result of the next presidential election. It is generally conceded the silver ques tion will lie the most important ducing many to invest and thus identify themselves with us to their own benefit and the advantage of the disThe mining men of Utah trict. should extend the Stock Exchange a cordial support.
