AVERAGE OF CARGO
Port of Two Harbors Believed to
Hold the World's Record.
4.626 GROSS TONS FOR SEASON
Maximum Cargo Of 7.47:: Tuna Car
tied by the IT. i. Steel Com
Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Mtun., Dec. 20.—The maximum
cargo of iron ore shipped this year from
Two Harbors was 7,473 gross. 8,36 a net,
lens, which was carried by the Manila,
of the United States Steel company's
fleet. There were 1.083 cargoes taken dur
ing the season and the average cargo was
48M Brow, :>.m net. tons. This is the
largest average of cargo ever made in a
shipping season in any port of the world,
it is probable, and is 500 tons more than
the record breaking average of the pre
ceding year at the. same port. The sea
son of navigation at the port was 222
•lays long. In one month more than 1,000,
--€»>o tons of ore was received at the dock 3
by rail au.l shipped into ships.
Pennsylvania Iron & Steel company has
given an option for a 50-year lease on its
property on the range to D. E. Wood
bridge, of Duluih, who has commenced
explorations with diamond drill on its
property at the rownaite of Buhl, close to
the Sharou. Grant and Iron Chief mines.
Ore of a thickness of more than 300
feet uud oi unknown area has been found
on school lauds in the east part of sec
tion 12, township 57. range 21. where a
<lrill haa been working for some months.
I 1 is not of high grade and will probably
drain the water of the Penobscot mine
It la reported that G. W. Wallace and
n-^ociatea are selling the Arcturua pros
near the western limit of the range,
for a large sum. It is not likely that any
deal has been closed, however. Mr. Wal
lace is last ou this and another ad-
Stevens mine is about ready for a large
stripping contract. A large amount of
ditching and digging preliminary to ex
tensive operation at the overburden has
been done and all figures preparatory to a
contract have been made. The mine is
to ship heavily another season. This
Is one of the great ore bodies of the
range, of excellent physical structure and
of a chemical character that is better
now, comparatively speaking, than it was
a short time ago when it was spoken of
as a low grade mine. There are said to
be anywhere from 30.000.000 to 50,000,000
tons of ore in the deposit. The lease is
15 cents a ton and is owned by the United
?*ates Steel corporation. The property
is east of any opened on the range, in
et-iMion 26, township ,">y, range 15.
Sparta Iron company has sold a lot
of ore to be shipped all rail to Chicago
this winter at prices not announced. The
mine is now shipping some to Ashland
also, where the freight rate ia $1.16 a
ton. This will give an idea of what
freight must be paid to Chicago. The
mine is in excellent shape, and a large
amount of ore has been encountered un
der an immense horse of rock that was
exposed in the early operations. It is
expected the Sparta and Malta will make
a combined shipment the coming year of
600,000 tons, if aueh a quantity of ore is
IX THE COPPER WORLD
Dividend Disbursements of Lake Su-
perlor and Moiuniia Mines.
Special to The Journal.
Calumet, Mich., Dec. 20.—The dividend
disbursements of the Lake Superior cop
per mining companies this year are sat
isfactory, and outside of the Calumet &
Hecla much the largest ever secured. Of
the thirty companies operating in the lake
district this year only six paid dividends.
The total of these dividends is $7,496,900,
which compares with «. total of .$9,798,000
paid in the calendar year 1900 and $12,
--318.000 in 1899. The small total this year
Is attributed in part to the fact that the
Calum#t & Hecla changed its quarterly
periods for the payment of dividends. In
so doing the first dividend this year was
paid in April, making only three dividends
of $13 each for the calendar year.
The following table shows respectively
the mine, amount per share and total

mining fields in the world. Of the total
profits returned to shareholders the Calu
met & Hecla has furnished almost 70 per
The dividend record of the Montana cop
fer mines this year is not up to that of
last year owing to the fact that the litiga
tion between Heinze and the constituent
companies of the Amalgamated Copper
company has reduced the productive cap- ;
a iiy of some of the smaller mines. This
year the Boston & Montana's dividends
were $35 a share aginst $43 a share last
year, and the Butte & Boston $3 per share
against *.". in 1900. The Anaconda's dis
bursement was $900,000 smaller this year
owing to the passing of the extra dividend
of three-fourths of I per cent at the time |
of the last declaration. The $8-- reduc
tion in the Boston & Montana's dividends i
this year made a difference of $1,200,000
in the totals.

MARGIN NOT A ISM. ONE
Vast of Cupper Making iv Lending
Special to The Journal.
Hancock, Mich., Dec. 20.—The reductions
in copper prices are starting, comment
on the question of the cost of making
lake copper. It is contended by many that
lake copper can be made at less than 8
to 8% cents a pound, showing an
enormous profit in the former selling quo
tations of 17 cents. In point of fact, there
is scarcely a large mine that markets cop
per at much less than 12 cents a pound,
and the present price of 14 cents does not
give them an exceptional profit by any
means. The total cost of making a pound
of copper at Calumet & Hecla the present
year is said to be about 11% cents, in
cluding a low charge for depreciation and
renewals. At Quincy the cost of last
year was 10% cents; Atlantic, 13%, for
Atlantic has a low grade rock and must
treat an enormous quantity to secure the
5.000,000 pounds of copper it makes yearly.
Osceola cost 13% cents a pound, price in
each case allowing a reasonable charge for
renewals and wear and tear. In fact, the
charged last year at Quincy and Atlantic
was 14.63 and 14.45 cents, respectively, but
there was charged in an unusual construc
tion account that should have been met by
renewal charges in preceding years.
Stories are being printed that the Calu
met & Hecla wil exhaust its con
glomerate shafts In 'four years. They are
absurd and untrue.
At the Mass they have this week raised
to surface a six-ton mass of copper, and
the bottom of the shaft from which It
came is so choked by heavy copper that
miners find It difficult to work there. The
second head of stamps will start in Janu
ary, working days only. The mine can
now supply two heads with selected rock.
Caledonia will., probably not commence
mining this winter. Most of the stock has
been taken by those concerned in the
floatation, these being interests associated
with the Quincy management.
Underground development at Michigan
is such that rock could be supplied to one
stamp immediately, but the Stanton man
agement is so conservative that nothing
of the sort will be done, and the mine will
have a mill before it begins to stamp
The big new 40-drill compressor at the
Atlantic is now in commission. This com
pletes the mine's thorough renewal of
machinery, and everything from one end
to the other has been renewed within
two cars. It is fortified against lower
priced copper and all the improvement
has been without calling on stockholders
for a cent. The Improvement has cost
At the Quincy the new underground
electric hauling system is at work. This
will assist in meeting the shrinkage in
prices. The mine is increasing its per
centage of mass copper and output re
markably, the new ground showing more
of this class of rock than any in the
At Rhode Island they nave struck the
Albany and Boston conglomerate, and it j
is said to be as good as the same rock
at the Franklin junior, which is making
money out of it. The future of the Rhode
Island rests in this lode. .
Exploration work at the Perm and Belt,
the newest propositions of the district'
has not ceased on account of recent ,
changes, but will continue all winter. In
both the openings look well, the Belt is \
getting much mass and the Perm shafts
are down 30 feet.
At the Victoria mine, Ontonagon, they
have reached the 14th level with the main
shaft and have cut a station there. No.
3 shaft will be started in the spring. j
The ground is looking rich enough to pay. j

Custer, S. D., Dec. 20.—The Wabash
Mining company in Custer county is mak- |
ing a good showing. A force of forty-two
men is employed. A boarding-house two !
stories high, a bunk nouse and a black- |
smith shop have been erected and are in i
use. The new steel hoist is in operation,

Special to The Journal.
Hill City, S. I)., Dec. 20.—The shaft on
the Lulu property, located east of this
city, is down about 100 feet, following a j
very rich streak of free-milling ore. Near j
this property is the Golden Slipper mine, '
which is being worked by the Empire \
State Mining company, J. B. Safford, gen- '
eral manager. The company Is installing !
