Divine will that I should go, I have
no right to attempt to stay. "
A stenographer was in constant at

the church. His family ami the officers
of the church also wanted his last re

There at Independence, the prophet,
as he was known, established the
"New Jerusalem" of the church,
obeying, he said, a revelation. Enmity
of other settlers, however, resulted in

SURVEY FOR PUBLIC BENEFIT
Makes No Difference Whether Laud
Is Public Property or Not
Washington, D. C., Dec. 11.—In the
Thirty-fifth Annual Report of the Unit
ed States Geological Survey, made pub
lic to-dav, George Otis Smith, the Di
rector, discusses particularly the pro
vince of the Federal Survey. An
amendment which was offered in Con
gress to last year's appropriate bill
would, if passed, have restricted the
geologic work of the Survey to the pub
lie lands. As the amendment failed
the only result was to attract more at
tention to the basic investigative work
of the Survey, which embraces all the
lands of the United States, the pri
vately owned as well as the public
lands. The examination of private
property for private purposes is for
bidden by the organic act of* the Sur
vey, but the examination of private
lands must be included in any general
investigation. The determinative fac
tor in the whole matter is whether the
investigation work on privately, owned
lands yields results that are merely of
local and personal interest or results
that are of general and national value.
Land ownership is only an incident
when large questions of natural re
sources are considered. The special
interest of the Government in its own
lands—the public lands—being grant
ed, it must be added, as was suggested
last year by Representative Sherley
at a hearing before the House Appro
priations Committee, that "So far as
the development of the mineral re
sources of the country is concerned, it
is just as important to know the re
sources of privately owned land as of
Government-owned land." it is
j remembered that in the First Annual
Report of the Geological Survey Di
rector King prophesied for the United
States a future annual output of min
eral products having a value of a bil
lion dollars, and that the present pro
duction is Hyo and one-half times that
amount, it must be conceded that the
: desirability of the Federal scientific in
; vestigationg of these national resources
is even greater than in 1880.
1 "It is a most conservative state
!ment," Director Smith says, "that at
no date has the general public been in

VERY CHEAP ROAD MATERIAL'
Obtained From Tailings of Concentrat
ing Mill at Zinc Mines
Washington, I). C., Dec. 11.—In
Missouri a considerable amount of rood
material is obtained from the tailings
of the concentrating mills at the zinc
mines. This material, which is put ou
the market cs "chats," consists of
small angular fragments of chert anil
limestone. The zinc companies are vorv
glad to get rid of tliis waste material,
which is loaded on the cars by the rail
roads of the district at a cost of about
6 or 8 cents a ton. It makes more
than ordinarily good roads and is wide
ly distributed all through the Middle
West. It sells in most places at prices
ranging from 50 ceuts to $1 a ton, Ibut
in the neighborhood of the mines it can
be had for about 15 cents a ton. It is
used for railroad ballast as well as
road-making. The annual output, af
fording to the United States "Geological
Survey, amounts to about 1,300,000
In Tennessee and Alabama a quanti
ty of chert is used for road metal, and
in many States crushed slag from blast
furnaces also furnishes a valuable road
material. In Alabama, one of the large
iron-producing States, over 2,000,000
short tons of furnace slag, the average
value of which was about 25 cents a
ton, was crushed and put on the roads
last year. Crushed slag is also used as
railroad ballast and for concrete and
