E. Sicbenthal, of the Uni ted States Geological Survey, Depart ment of the Interior, describes the minor but interesting uses of this metal, in the war.

PAGE EIGHT THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH, SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1919 SILVER EXPORTS ARE TAKEN OFF The price fixing board of the gov ernment, last Monday, removed the restriction imposed on the importation of sijver and the fixing of the price at $1.01, which was made last Au gust and now the white metal can be traded in freely and exported to all parts of the world. It has been the general belief that the ban off silver export would cause the price to break 'all records and we will soon see what will be the outcome of the new con ditions. There is.no doubt that if the smelters and other large producers of silver in the United States do not try to break the market the price will go far above the dollar. Silver is a necessary money metal in all parts of the world and the fact that England and France have been getting large quantities from the United States in dicates the imperative necessity for the metals in those countries.
