Synopsis :

Excerpt from Comstock Mining and Miners

The monograph which I was instructed to prepare upon Comstock Mining and Miners is not a memoir of merely local importance and inter est, but the record of a struggle which has materially affected the mining interests Of the world. It is the story of the birth Of the silver-mining industry in this country, and it portrays as well the most Vigorous growth Of that industry. The simple narrative is, in truth, not less marvelous than an Arabian tale, recounting, as it does, how a handful of earth tossed away carelessly by a poor immigrant became the loadstone which drew a swarm of men to a desert avoided even by beasts, and how from this clue a thread Of gold was traced to its hidden source, and treasures rivaling the fancied store Of the young Aladdin were unveiled. Its scenes present the toil Of placer miners in an isolated canon, the search of prospectors for gold and silver, the discovery Of aworld-famous lode, the extraordinary migration called tersely the rush to Washoe, the life of a turbulent mining camp, and its ultimate crystallization into a thriving city.
