Hj The financial statement with which
Hj 1 the Columbus Con. Mining company
Hj closed a most prosperous anniversary
yesterday afternoon told of receipts ag
j gregating $98,000, of which sum S2S.S29
j was derived from the sale of ore from
Hi its mines at Alta. The disbursements,
including payments on the acquisition
HL j of property, the erection of buildings
and equipment generally, In addition to
mining, reached as much, although in

A NEW RECORD.
Tonnages Out of Camp of Bonanzas
Again Establish a Record.
The year at Park City has opened
upon an output of ore and concentrates
exceeding 15,000 tons per month, an
achievement that exceeds all previous
records, and that this will be broken
as the new year ages there Is no
shadow or doubt. To sustain It the
product of the new mill erected by the
Kearns-Kelth company has made Its
appearance at the valley furnaces,
while from the Daly-Judge is now com
ing to the smelter an average of seventy-five
tons of concentrates daily,
wltii intermittent lots from other
sources. The Silver King and Daly
West are each maintaining the usual
output, with the latter preparing to in
crease its output of concentrates, while
the old Daly, with Its record of nearly
$3,000,000 In dividends and a gross out
put of over $12,000,000, Is coming tq mar
ket with wealth from its new Mazeppa
shaft In virgin ground. These, without
reference to the Comstock and Califor
nia, the Naildrlver and others which
appeared at Intervals at the smelter,
are .sufficient to sus-taln the prophet
who Is almost ready to wager his last
loaf that the production of 1904 will
show an increase of quite GO per cent.
There Is no doubt that a cluster of the
younger generation will be added to the
roster of producers during the year,
and with the activity now at 'camp
there Is no telling at what hour the
older bonanzas may find a rival alongside.

Mineral, on the Oregon Short Line, yes
terday drew down a check for a dozen
carloads of matte that Is being for
warded to the furnace? of the United
States smelter In this valley, and will
follow It with another consignment In
a short time. Under the manageirjrint
of Mr. Zera Snow of Portland, Or., the
undertaking has burst upon the horizon
with a promise that compares favor
ably with any of the youngsters, and
while the quality of the product Is not
revealed It Is said that it averages
about $100 per ton. The new plant Is re
ported doing excellent work at this
time, with much to foretell enlarge
ments before the cose of the year.
Assessments at Pioche.
One of the greatest evidences of confi
dence among the citizens of Pioche in this
district Is the regularity with which an
nual assessments havo been performed,
says the Record Tho requirement by law
of $100 expenditure on mining locations
has been observed almost to a claim. This
means much and la a concluso Indication
to the public at large that the mineral re
sources of this section are worth holding
on to. In tho performance of this annual
work some Important strikes havo been
made, all of which demonstrates that de
velopment alone Is necessary to place
many properties on a paying basis. It Is
a fact indeed that few camps, If any, In
the West possess the actual mineral re-
sources that Pioche and surrounding coun
try does. ,

ON COPPER MOUNTAIN
Sensational Percentages in
the Red Metal.
WORK 9F THE LEWISS0HNS
Copper Quson Group to Be
Eighteen. Inches of Ore Afford S100
in Gold and Silver Rumors of
a Furnace nt Camp.
The year at Copper mountain, Box
Elder county, has opened upon a spec
tacle of activity that if persisted In
cannot but place It among the more
productive of Utah's sources of wealth
the present season, said C. E. Dugger,
president and general manager of the
Giant Copper Queen company, which
was recently launched and which is
now putting a tunnel Into Its group,
the ledge upon which at the surface re
veals a width of about seventy feet.
From this he brought samples of copper-bearing
ore, which are now on ex
hibition at the offices of Col. Kalgn,
that indicate very high percentages,
while he Is relying on something even
better at greater depth. On the group
purchased by the Lewlssohns and which
is characterized as the Rockefeller
property at camp the tunnel has been
driven into It a distance of 1020 feet,
where the ledge Is tapped at a depth of
S00 feet, while the developments in their
entirety disclose a volume of ore which
compares, says Mr. Dugger, with any
in the Stat. Samples from this show
a cyprite along with the "copper ox
ides," as they are commonly designated,
while Superintendent Fred Hoppie
claims that the whole will maintain an
average of 10 per cent copper.
On the "other side" of the mountain
It Is said that the sons of Superintend
ent Hoppie have opened up a fissure
eighteen Inches between walls, carrying
copper glance and containing $100 in
gold and silver per ton. and with these
values it should not be long until the
public is afforded a taste of the pud
ding. The impression prevails at the camp
that the Messrs. Lewlssohn will begin
the active production of ore from the
Copper mountain group the present sea
son, this the only thing required to give
the camp, which is practically on the
line between Utah and Nevada, the
prominence to which it Is entitled.
MIDAS'S NEW MILL.
Lumber for the Plant Now on Its
Way to Deep Creek Property.
For the restoration of the Midas com
pany's mill In the Deep Creek country
lumber Is now being forwarded to
camp, and as soon as skill can make
It possible the plant which was wiped
out by fire will be rebuilt. There will
be some changes In the structure, but
not In the methods, said Manager
Chipman, and It is hoped that the sea
son will see it extracting the gold from
thirty tons of ore dally. Meanwhile th
usual work Is progressing underground
with the ores maintaining a fine aver
age, and It Is not difficult to see good,
big earnings the present year.
AT LOWER MAMMOTH.
One Hundred Tons of Oro Coming
Daily to the Valley Furnaces.
While the quality is not the best of
which the ledges have shown them
selves capable, Superintendent Ball of
the Lower Mammoth is forwarding an
average of 100 tons or ore daily to the
valley furnaces from that Tlntlc prop
erty, while the search for higher grades
Is being steadily prosecuted. Indeed,
everything underground Is In most sat
isfactory condition and Important
changes are possible on any shift.
UNCLE SAM MILL.
Plant Now Being Tried Out and Its
Various Parts Adjusted.
The limbering up of the new concen
trator with which the Uncle Sam of
Tlntlc Is to add to its future earnings
has been in progress since Friday last,
and while its adjustment has not been
completed nor the active feeding of ore
begun, the results thus far, said tho.
management yesterday, have gratified
every expectation. It Is expected that
the production of concentrates on a
commercial scale will have begun by
the middle of the month. Meantime the
plant Is promised a steady volume of
milling ore. while the usual amount of
first-class Is coming to the furnaces of
the American Smelting and Refining
BLUE BELL SHAFT.
Not an'Expensive Task, as Outlined
by tho Management.
With the main tunnel on the Eagle &
Blue Bell of Tlntlc maintaining Its
present progress into the zone, active
work on the proposed shaft which will
render the ore bodies more accessible
will begin early next month. Already
the tunnel has reached a point lasi feet
from its portal and about ninety feet
more will advance It to that through
which the shaft is to drop. From tho
300-foot level upraising will begin, while
sinking Is prosecuted from above, the
same course to be followed from the.
other levels to a depth of 750 feet, from
which latter it will continue to drop.

UTAH CON. SMELTER.
Some Impx-ovements Will Interest tho
To Mines & Metals of Scrantori, Pa.f
S. S. Sorenson, mechanical engineer
for the Utah Con., has contributed
a most Instructive description of the en
largements row being made at the
Highland Boy smelter:
"Jt would not always be wise, even
in genial Utah, to commence building
operations in the late fall; but the
Highland Boy's good luck has evidently
been passed on to its successor, the
Utah Consolidated, for the extension to
Its already large plant at Murray,
which was only finally decided on In
the middle of October, has made con
siderable headway In unusually fu
orable weather," says Mr. Sorenson.
The foundations for the converter
dust chamber and stack, the new Mc
Dougal furnaces and the roaster build
ing, as well as for the extension of the
smelter building and the new furnace
stacks, are finished, and those of the
new reverberatorles are well forward.
The extensions under way are as
follows: (1) An addition of S7 feet to
the smelter building, thereby making
It 464 feet long; this addition will con
tain two new reverbcratory smelting
furnaces -13 feet 6 Inches by 17 feet;
(2) a dust chamber 56x27x18 feet, and a
stack 5 feet 6 inches by 190 feet for
the converters alone; (3) an addition to
the roaster building 126x65 feet, to con
tain 12 more McDougal calcining fur
naces; and (4) to take care of the
extra horsepower required, as wen as
to have a stand-by engine to secure
Immunity from stoppages for engine
overhauls and repairs, there will be a
new Nordberg-Westlnghousc engine
generator. In addition to these main
items, there will be sundry small ones,
such as extra slag cars and hopper cars
for ore, coal and calcines, and In addi
tion to the machine shop and boiler
The new reverberatorles do not differ
In any radical respect from the last
ones built, the greatest difference be
ing 2 feet extra In their width and the
Increased width and area of the firebox,
viz., 10x6 ,fect. They will, however,
still be provided with forced draft, and
the normal height of stack, viz., SO feet,
but with the area of the latter in
creased. The binding, which Is viJry
solid, Is of I beams Instead of rails.
Perhaps the most decided Innovation
is the substituting of a steel box beam
in place of tho usual massive cast-iron
horn and conker plates. No provision
has been made In these furnaces, as
in the last ones built, to preheat the
air supply, as the experience with the
former ones, in that respect, was not
satisfactory. Besides, It is the inten
tion, at a later date, to apply the heat
of the Hue gases to steam generating,
as is successfully being done at the
Anaconda smelter. This is considered
a more practical method of utilizing
some of the waste heat than preheat
ing the air as hitherto attempted.
There Is no special feature of the
Converter dust chamber: It has brick
walls and steel floor and roof, with
numerous cleaning doors In the floor,
and Is set upon cast-Iron pillars 6& feet
above the ground level for the passage
of cars underneath when cleaning out.
The high Independent steel stack will
both' Improve working conditions and
abate the smoke damages to adjoining
Besides many minor improvements
which the company's experience has
evolved in working Its first Installment
of eight McDougal roasters, the chief
feature of Interest In the new plant Is
the self-cleaning main flue; this is of
beehive section, with steel hopper bot
tom, having chutes connecting to the
calcine hoppers. It is placed above the
top of the furnaces, and runs centrally
between the rows of them for the en
tire length of the building, and Is con
nected at one end to the main beehive
flue (recently attached to the present
McDougals), which leads Into the large
central dust chamber and thence to the
stack. This will give a long passage
for the settlement of the dust and en
able the latter to be drawn off and
smelted practically continuously as de
posited, with a minimum of labor and
In the engineering department, the
present Nordberg-Westinghouee unit
(which has been in continuous service
for nearly 4 years, stopping but for
a few minutes once a week) will be
relieved by the Installation at Its side
of a younger and slightly larger sister.
For though the generator will have the
same nominal capacity of output of 250
kilowatts, the engine will be 16x32x36
feet to give that output at 100 revolu
tions per minute with the maximum
economy of steam.
With these Improvements and ad
ditions completed! (which, It is expected,
will be In May) the capacity of the
plant will be increased from about 500
tons dally to about 700 tons. This ore
Is entirely derived from the company's
mine at Bingham, a fact which con
tributes, perhaps, not a little to the
steadiness and efficiency with which
this plant Is operated.
The number of new McDougals is
not proportional to the increase of out
put desired, but Is in excess of that so
as to admit of cutting out some old
four-decker straight-line roasters,
which are the principal Instruments of
involving the company In litigation over
smoke damage. The smoke from the
McDougal type of furnace is readily
controlled and confined to the Hues and
stack, and, as the latter is having 50
feet added to Its height (already 105
feet), trouble from that source should
be minimized, as It will, when com
pleted, be the highest stack in the val
ley. This additional height to the stack
is being put on without Interfering with
the steady operation of the works.
The latter half of the coming year
should therefore enable the company to
materially add to the substantial divi
dends it has been earning for the shai-e-holders

The Copper Situation.
Estimates of copper production for 1903
credit Arizona, Michigan and Utah with
an Increase over 1S02 and give Montana nnd
California a moderate decrease, says the
Mining Reporter of Denver. The samo es
timates place the stocks of copper on hand
In this country at tho close of tho vear as
ncrmal. such as will not tend to affect the
market price materially at the beginning
of the year. Stocks of this metal In Eu
rope, however, are reported below the nor
mal point and tho market may be
strengthened by exportatlons from the
United. States. The copper production of
this country for the year 1902 approxi
mated 203.000 tons, the exports for" same
year amounting to about 104.150 tons, the
imports not reaching over 25.CO0 tons for
that year. Undisturbed Industrial condi
tjons during 1901 will surely stimulate the
consumption of this metal and result In a
steady market and possibly higher prices
