competition with a rail line, then the
rates ot the rail line shall be adopted in
making the through rate ; and, provided
further, that such through rate shall
not exceed the sum of the locals of any
rail line between such points.

Yesterday I was handed a pamphlet
entitled "Statistics of mines and
minerals of North Carolina." This has
been proposed by the committee of the
inning board ot Charlotte and is
really a very valuable paper. It dis
cribes many of the principal gold, iron,
coal and copper mines of the State,
their location, quality of ores and
mineral formations associated with
them. The writer, who is evidently Mr.
G. 13. Ilanna, of the mint, shows much
knowledge of the geological formations
of the State and its mineral matter.
There is a modesty of style and a
scientific precision In discribing min
erals and ores that shows a familiarity
with the subject of Avhich he treats.
that adds value to his historic and
scientific statements. The concise
history of the leading mines of the
State will be interesting to many. The
pamphlet was hastily prepared by one
useful to our State but shows that the
writer is worthy of a higher position
than he now occupies in the Federal
