t Story of a Deal Involving
:! EUREKA HILL THE BUYER
; Col. Trumfae Representing the
Interesting Story of iN'ogotin.tions
j . Now in Progress Relations Be-
, tween tho Companies,
jj "While Ub verification last night vras
i; impossible, It 1b being exploited 00 a
fact none the less positive, that tho
j k properties of tho Bulllon-Bcck Mining;
it company at Eureka are now undergo-
j , ing examination preliminary to tho
L: consummation of a deal by which tho
p! conveyance to a neighboring company
Rl is to follow. It was said yesterday
k' morning that the purchasing company
was nono other than United States,
but this war denied. It was then said
V, that the Eureka-Hill was winding its
i embrace about it and that in the truns-
r. action the Beck was being represented
'. bv Col. Isaac Trumbo. This was more
L;i logical and is hitting, perhaps, nearer
(I1 the facto. However, it was impossible
i to verify It. For some time it has been
jif known that various interests In the
;! Bullion-Beck were willing, if not eager,
k'J to dispose of their holdings, nnd Anally
Col. Trumbo, who Is himself a share-
r!i holder, was asked to step into the sad-
p die. Unless indications are worthless,
;' the Colonel Is there now. Meanwhile
I't the Bulllon-Bcck holdB a judgment.
I against Its vis-a-vis-, the Eureka-Hill,
'; which, with interest, aggregates some-
L thing like 5109,000 this sum thrice the
value of ores that were removed from
I'J Beck ground by the Eureka-Hill, ac-
J j cording1 to the findings of the referee
I before whom Its claim was contested.
H '; "What figure Is Involved in the negolia-
I 1 lions has not been exploited, but it Is
H I said that should they be successful the
B , judgment against the Eureka-Hill will
1 ! be taken into consideration.
I,' The territory of the Bullion-Beck has
I been productive of dividends amount-
I- ing to $2,479,000, is equipped with a
I , mill, and while for several years it has
I ; been operated with indifferent results,
I I certainly the talent has not lost confl-
1 1 dence In its ultimate recuperation.
p Dlrego and International Ready to
: Amalgamate Their Interests.
H: The negotiations between the Intcr-
Hi national Copper Mining company and
H; the Dlrego-La Sal Mining company,
H; looking to an amalgamation of their
H- interests in the La Sals region, have
Hj been ratified by tho shareholders of
each, with naught remaining to be done
H1 that Is not In the hands of a committee
that Is in accord with the shareholders?
of the respective companies. Consoll
datlon of Interests, which has been un
der discussion for Eome time, was ap
H; proved by the Dlrego-La Sal's share-
holders some time ago, and at a spe
rial meeting in this city yesterday was
Hl approved by those of the International.
Hj whereupon a committee was appointed
H! by them, consisting of Senator Harden
Bennion of Vernal, Judge A. C. Hatch
of Heber. Samuel A. King of Provo and
Daniel H. Ferguson of this city, to ar
range further details and to report to
Hj the respective Interests before April 1st
next. The International company la
fl the possessor of thirteen mining claims
In the region, the Dlrego of twenty
three, with a total of thlrty-slx under
the consolidation, which John H. Mc
Ohrystal. after a recent examination,
characterizes as among the greatest
Bj possibilities into which he has had the
privilege of Inquiring. George E. Mc
Cann of Auburn, Me., who has been
managing the alTairs of the Dlrego com
H pany, Is also quite enthusiastic over the
consolidation, and with it perfected his
interests promise the means with
which to prosecute developments on a
most extensive scale.

FOR STAR'S RELIEF
Chlorination to Be Intro
duced at Tintic.
RECOVERS 98 PER CENT
Low-Grade Ores to Afford
Ground for Plant of 200 Tons Daily
Capacity to Be Broken in the
Next Thirty Days.
During tho past few honrs an ar
rangement has been perfected that
promises- a solution for all the misfor
tunes with which the Star Con. of Tin
tic has been encumbered and by which
It Is promised a position among the
moat productive of the camp's bonan
zas. Briefly, the arrangement contem
plates the equipment of the properties
of the company with a plant that, with
the use of chlorination, will enable It
to make a commercial proposition of
ores that now offer but Indifferent mar
gins, if any margins whatever, under
prevailing conditions, the gentlemen
who have exploited the plan, in which
the Packard Interest have concurred,
being W. V. Landers of Boston, Mass.,
W. A. Clarke and associates of the lat
ter In this city.
Mr. Landers, by way of Introduction,
If not of commendation, Is of the par
ent company pioneering the chlorina
tion process, and while his work since
entering the field at Tintic has been
noiseless, It has been nono the less ex
haustive. In his experiments, prose
cuted on a commercial scale, he has
demonstrated that by means his pro
cess affords, as much as OS per cent of
the values contained In Star Con. ores
may be recovered at an expense so
trifling as to make them afford a well
defined profit, and with local alliances
the plan is to be Installed at once. In
the agreement with the Messrs. Pack
ard the gentlemen have obligated them
selves to Install a plant of 100 tons
dally capacity, but Mr. Landers volun
teers the assurance that will be made
to start with a capacity for reducing
200 tons dally, this to be Increased to
500 within the year.
A careful examination of the ore
bodies contained in tire Star Con. has
disclosed a volume of ore sufficient to
meet the requirements of the plant for
an indefinite period, the tonnages now
upon the dump and In which is in
cluded not a little $17 ore. affording a
big suppl. The site of the plant will
be at the mines and ground for It, un
der the agreement. Is to be broken
within thirty days.
That other and all Interests in Star
Con. may satisfy themselves upon the
merits of the undertaking Its promoters
are urging It upon them to come and
scrutinize the plan and process which
has done so much for the relief of sim
ilar conditions In Cqlorado and else
where. Of his success In ita applica
tion to the Star Con. ores, Mr. Lan
ders says there Is not a shadow of
doubt, and with Its successful applica
tion there a field Is opened up that can
not be circumscribed. A similar class
of ore, Indeed, Is found at many mines
in the district, and chlorination there
should bo made to serve them as effi
ciently as In other fields. Certainly Tin
tic Is to be congratulated, while the
promoters are entitled to most liberal
THE BLAOKBIBD ANNUAL.
Strong Board of Directors Chosen, j
and Harmony Prevails.
The shareholders of the Blackbird Ml- 1
nlng company, with Its empire oC copper-bearing
territory out of Frisco,
tills State, met In adjourned session
during the afternoon, elected a board of
directors and rose with the Du Bois
faction again in the ascendant. With
all that the meeting was characterized
by the utmost harmony and with the
minority feeling at the closo that It had
been most magnanimously dealt with.
In the creation of a board of directors
the following were chosen: John E.
Du Bois, J. W. Russell, Dr. P. A. II.
Franklin, Charles J. North. J. M. Gam
blll, Li. A. Amsden, Carl H. Fowler.
In the organization of the board, Mr.
Du Bois was made president; Mr.
North vice-president and Mr. Amsden
With a vast area of. territory adjoin
ing the Newhousc mines, the Comet,
owned by the $30,000,000 Monarch com
pany, which has just been launched In
Maine, the Imperial and others, the
Blackbird company will no dpubt figure
as an energetic factor In the region the
present year. Certainly It has possibil
ities that no one can underrate, while
Its official household should command
the confidonce at home that It has In
spired elsewhere. Development Is what
is needed that's all. In a statement
in behalf of the minority, Dr. Franklin
said last night, after the meeting,
which was so harmonious as to be ac
tually discordant te those who expected
It to be otherwise, th.at he and his as
sociates were ready to take off their
coats and to work with every, endeavor
to place Blackbird on the loftiest perch.

William Mortensen, secretary of the
Midnight Sun Mining company, is the
recipient of encouraging news from the
seat of operations over beyond
Thayne's canyon. After passing through
more than 700 feet of barren blue lime
In the tunnel, a change of formation is
occurring which is regarded as very sig
nificant. A notable mineralization is
softening the rock. Mr. Mortenson has
samples of the latest rock broken from
the Midnight Sun drift and they con
trast strikingly with nil that has hither
to been taken from the ground. Two
yeara ago assays were taken 42 feet be
low the surface from a shaft sunk In
the Midnight Sun vein and showed an
average for the vein of $7.41 in gold. A
point directly beneath the bottom of this
ehaft has been the objective point of the
company's operations for two years, and
now. with a tunnel 725 feet long, meas
urements would indicate that they arc
in the neighborhood of 100 feet from the
goal. The mineralization coming so op
portunely Is a source of groat encouragement.

Will GAMBLE ON OIL
Pittsburg Crowd Ready to
Take a Chance.
LEAVE FOR NEW FIELBS
Accompanied by a Prominent
Afraid of the Parlor Match, Deadllno
Ie Drawn Around tho GufCey
& Galey Oil Bore.
Just as scheduled, there arrived from
Pennsylvania yesterday morning, with
the gas and oil fields of Salt Lake val
ley as its destination, a party of
wealthy and experienced oil and gas
men, the gucets and clients of Joseph
H. Bigger, by whom their attention
was called to local conditions during a
recent visit to Pittsburg. Prominent
among the visitors are Messrs. John
W. Bolleau and W. S. Ravonscroft, the
remainder preferring to withhold their
Identity until such time as the prelim
inaries have been disposed of. The or
ganization of a company for which Mr.
Bigger has blazed the way has been
perfected, and the hour has arrived for
systematic exploration of the basin into
which It will bore. Mr. Bolleau has for
somo time been a most prominent fig
ure In the realm of Eastern finance,
while Mr. Ravenscroft's name Is Iden
tified with many of the more prominent
enterprises in his State. The gentlemen
are here to enter the local field of gas
and oil with the zeal that has charac
terized their exploits at home, and to
study conditions will leave for the val
ley at once, accompanied by one of the
foremost of the Nation's experts. A fa
vorable report by him. said Mr. Bol
leau during the day, will be followed
by the opening of offices In this city,
application for a charter under local
laws, and active boring as soon as
equipment can bo Installed.
"We don't know what the merits of
your field are as yet," said Mr. Bolleau.
"but the presence of Messrs. Guffey
and Foley within it is sufficient to Jus
tify us In the expenditure of any sum
that shall be required to determine
them, nnd If the possibilities appeal to
them we. are willing to take a hand In
The presence of the distinguished
gentlemen comprising the party cannot
