This summary of "Wyoming in 1890" was reprinted in "Bill Barlow's Budget" of January 15, 1890. It presents what Wyoming offers to the Union in 1890 as well as what Wyoming "expects" in 1890. This article states that one of Wyoming's "mineral resources" was "Cinnamon." The original article from the Cheyenne Daily Sun of January 14, 1890 correctly states it was "Cinnabar," a mercury sulphide which is native to sands of the Big Horn River.
