| SURPLUS OF COPPER
JMff Disturbing Factor In the Trade
\ J u s t IVb-w.
HOUGHTON, MICH.The general copper
ftttuation Is again giving uueasiness t o pro
ducers and speculators in copper shares.
T h e r e are two factors making for unsettled
ooditions in the copper trade. Tho iirst i s
t h e "Wall street game now being played, and.
the second i s the boating surplus of metal
bought for speculative purposes a t the time
the bottom wont out of the market late last
year. This surplus of copper in the hands
- f persons who bought it purely as a specu
lation baa much the same effect on the metal
market as rolling ballast has i n the hold of
a heavy-laden vessel. It s sudden shiftingis
causes the craft to pitch and roll in a most
T h e lake district will soon add four new
mills t o Its present list of producers, these
being the mills of tho Wolverine, Trimoun
tain. Adventure and Quincy. The first three
should go into commission next month, .or,
at t he latest, in September.. The Mohawk
mill is not so far advanced, but should begin
tamping in October, or even earlier. T h e
result of starting the Wolverine's mill will
be t o Increase the mine's production about
0 per cent.
The Baltic i s installing two new heads in
Its mill. Th e first of these, which will b e
the third stamp in the mill, will b e run
ning about Aug. 1, and will treat Baltic
rock, thus adding 50 per cent t o the mine's
production, while the fourth head will b e
turned over to the Champion mine about the
middle of August: This will enable th e
Champion to secure a large production, even
before its own mill is working, for the reason
that a ton of Champion rock holds more cop
per than a ton of a n y other rock in the Lake
district, with the sole exception of the Calu
met & Hecla, which leads by a few pounds.
Judging from the active operations a t the
Tamarack-Osceola Copper Manufacturing
company's plant a t Dollar Bay, the demand
tor copper wire and copper sheets continues
good. The plant is advantageously situated,
having western markets nearer at hand than
any other American plant, while the raw
material, Lake Superior copper, preferred for
Its toughness in wire r drawlng, is secured a t
The Isle Royale mine continues to make a
fine showing, and is earning a profit, despite
the very low percentage of copper averaged
in its lodes. The good results are secured
because of t i e exceptionally complete and
economical plant, supplemented by good man
W a g e s N o t t o B e C u t .
CALUMET, MICH.Sensational rumors
\ that the mine managements of the Lake Su
perior copper mines have agreed to cut wages
from 5 to 12 per cent are officially denied. No
cut in wages will be made, though the price
of copper is now the lowest in years. Th e
companies realize that the cost of living has
Increased, and no action on the wage question
will be taken.
The Quincy Mining company this week de
clared a regular semi-annual dividend of $3
a share, a reduction over last disbursement
of a dollar. Few of the lake mines are earn
ing as much money now as last year, when
copper was selling at a higher figure. A con
tinuance of the present conditions will result
In further reductions in dividends.
Calumet capitalists have purchased a
beavy interest in the Copper Queen mine i n
Canada. The showing is considered excel
lent. ' The Clergue interests are constructing
ja, railroad t o a point near the m i n e and a
branch will be extended.
A force of men is engaged a t the .Isle
Royale in exploration work on the surface.
A trench i s being cut to open the lodes oiit
cropping on the Frue property. A diamond
drill will b e set up in a few days t o ex
plore some parts of the mine.
The Mass mine i n Ontonagon county i s
making a large amount of mass and barrel
copper. This form of the metal" Is over 80
per cent pure, and goes direct to the smelters
without being stamped. The stamp rock con
tains good values of silver and the company
expects t o erect a smelter on the plans of
the plants in Montana to refine the mineral.
Copper country capitalists are developing
the Kittle Burton gold mine in Idaho. Th e
stock of the company is held only in this dis
trict. Recently about $50,000 additional funds
At No. 5 shaft of the Tamarack mine, the
deepest in the world, twenty power drills are

W E S T SUPERIOR, WIS.The federal
courts will n o w be entered by the brewers
to effect a practical nullification o f the de
cision of the Wisconsin courts t o the effect
that all cities i n the state outside the one
in which the beer i s manufactured have the
authority to force the local agencies of such
brewers to pay local license*. Mayor O'Hare
has issued orders t o the police that agents
not having licenses m u s t close their places
this week, tout the brewers are preparing a
coup. - ' - 1
T h e Duluth Brewing and Malting company
at work upon a suit to be started i n the
federal courts and a n injunction restraining
the city from closing up its agency will b e
demanded. T h e Duluth' company and other
brewers from out of the state, however, may
be placed on a different footing from that of
the Wisconsin brewers. Interstate laws m a y
prevent the city from closing .agenci'oB from
other etates whioh have complied with all
license requirements. It i s likely, however,
the proceedings to* be started by the Duluth
company will have the effect of preventing
any other steps b y either side until th*
federal court hands down its decision.

The announcement by F. A. Bartlett, state
missionary o f the American Sunday School
Union, of the appointment of Rev. C. Sulli

The hearing before the executive council
on railway taxation was marked yesterday
by th e appearance of Henry Wallace,:}
who spoke fo r t h e public and urged
that the market- values o f stocks and bonds
be used in Teckonlng the values of railroads.
Mr. Wallace, who i s the publisher o f Wal
lace's Farmer of this city., and an authority
on farm values, contended that the present
values of farms i n Iowa were too high t o
continue and could not justly be taken as the
basis for assessment of farm-property.
W. W. Baldwin of the Burlington presented
figures to s h o w that hundreds o f corpora
tions in Iowa are evading section 1323 of the
code, which requires an annual return to the
assessors, showing the amount and value of
their capital stock and facte related thereto.
Of fifteen large-concerns he had Investigated
in Burlington, Mr. Baldwin said not one w a s
making such a report. N o such reports were
m a d e in Des Moines and the assessments on
corporations were extremely, often ridicul
ously, low. Mr! Baldwin cited a s examples
the low assessments on the Des Moine6 Street
Railway company, the Des MolneB Water
works company,' the Savery Hotel company,
the Edison Light company and various others.
Governor Cummins, who has taken th e
closest",lnte,rest in the hearings, h a s declared
his belief that the state Is given .too large a,.
share of-- operating.: expenses by the railroads,
thus cutting down the net earnings according
to reports: H e believes the fair rule would
be to give Iowa the s a m e share of oporating
expenses, compared t o the expenses o f t h e
systems as t h e Iowa gross earnings are to the
entire gross earnings.
