I False Reports From
Ball Frog District
Rich Strike in the Ealston Desert
Proves to Bo Without Eoun
datlou. Special to Tho Tribune.
RENO, New, Oct. 9. Reports which
have been coming In of rich strikes Mn-tho
Bull Frog district, which Ilea 112 miles
by trail south of Goldflold. In tho south
western neck of tho Ralston desert nnd
at tho head of Amargosa desert, nave
been greatly overestimated, and havo
beon tho means of causing a stampede of
miners which may end seriously.
Tho country surrounding' tho territory
of the roported strike 13 ono of tho moat
dcaolato to bo found In tho cnllro West,
and In somo respects Is moro dreaded
than tho famous Death valley of Cali
fornia. Water Is extremely Bcarcc, the
nearest spring being three miles distant,
and this la so Impregnated with alkali,
borax and mineral aa to bo unpaJalablo
for man. and animate, even when suffer
ing from extromo thirst, refii60 It.
Tho mineral deposits of which so much
has been said are entirely on the surfaco
and aro tho result of blowouts, which
have left the mineral scattered In small
pockets of no great vaTUO- There aro no
deHned lodgos, and what little mineral
ha3 been found Is In such small quanti
ties as to prohibit profitable work. De
velopment demonstrates that at no point
does the or go downward, and experi
enced miners who have visited the region
pronounce' It &f unworkable.
These facts wero gleaned from mining
men who have Just returned from an ox
tended trip through this region, and who
have examined all of the alleged strikes
that havo been made within the past
seven weeks. They, advise miners nnd
prospectors to stay away, as food sup
plies ennnot bo secured excepting at
Goldflold and LIda. the former more Jhan
100 ami the latter forty mllc3 distant.
Everything has to be packed In at largo
expense. In the reports sent out, the
statement has been made that twenty
men were engaged In mining nnd that
moro were coming In dally. Tho truth Is
that but two prospectors were at work,
and these were dissatisfied nnd would
soon leave. Another report Is that a
townslto had been located and the snlo of
building lots begun. This Is a fabrica
tion, as no town could exist In that
region, and not a stick of timber Is with
in nearly 100 miles of tho spot.
With the foolhanllness which follows
all reported rich strikes, scores of miners
havo started for the new fields from To
nopah, Goldflold and other camps on tho
north, and from Arizona and California
on the south and west, coming by way of
Death valley and crossing tho Orapcvlnc
mountalna, which He somo twelve miles
to the westward. These latter will faro
badly, and It Is for them that grave fchra -aro
Benator Frank J. Cannon will speak
at the county mass convention of tho
American party Monday afternoon.

TWO IMPORTANT EVENTS.
Strike on Tonopoh Club and Opening
of Shipping on the Val Verde.
Special to The Tribune.
SODAVILLE. Nov.. Oct. 9. Tho striko
Hj on the Tonopah Club and the opening up
of three feet of shipping oro on the Val
Verde of the Jumbo Extension constitute
Er) tho two most Important events in the dc
vclopment of the mining properties of the
Goldflold district during tho past week.
H Tho former astonishes mining men of
Hj vast cxpcrlenco because of the unusual
character of the formation, which Is en
tlrely different from anything hcrctoforo
opened up In the district. Tho presence
B of high sllvor values is another cxccptlon-
1 nl occurrence, So far fourteen feet of oro
1 ban been cut through, and neither wall
Is In sight. Assays continue to run high.
1 The ore has been described as nu Igneous
conglomerate, having something of the
appearance of shnlc. With depth It le
j conjectured that a more dctlned rock will
bo found, most likely solid quartz, A
H shaft Is to be put down on the lead to
thoroughly exploit the oro body.
Tho east drift on the Quartzlto con-
1 tlnucs to show remarkably rich ore. An
H assay taken yesterday from across tho
1 rich streak gave returns of fI0,7C1.S0. An-
1 other shipment of several carloads will be
1 Rent out next from oro that Is extracted
1 In doing development work.
H Tho Black Butte la showing up cxcccd-
lngly well under tho extensive plan of dc
1 velopment prosecuted by the company,
1 and the property Is now classed as a big
1 mine. Ore has been opened up on flvo
H different place In tho upper tunnel, where
j a big body of milling ore Is showing In
1 three ledges that have been cut by tho
j working tunnel, and In a new shaft that
1 has been started on the extension of tho
H Quartzlto leud. Good values arc found In
1 the shaft.

Gold Crater Mining District Attracts
Considerable Attention From
This new district, about twenty-six
mlleQ'ii little south of cuat of Goldlleld,
attracted a great deal of attention In
the mining world tho last week, nnd
several grouns of claims havo been sold.
Ridge & Curtlu purchnscd a group of
claims and In a twelve-foot hole, taking
an average sample from top to bottom
and across, obtained an assay of $17-1,
according to the Reno Gazette.
The Inman and Sanders strike runs from
J2i to 760.
The Elliott, WllJIama & Colburn prop
erty chows a fine lead that runs from
570 to $1-10.
There Is mother striko about seven
miles east of Gold Crater that runs as
high as any found In Gold Crater.
It. W. Grlswold and associates have pur
chased a group of claims.
The formation la the same as tho Gold
field district and Is bounded on the west
by a lava cropping. Porphyry mountains
dot tho plains, and In these are found
(ho quartz ledges. Some of the oro re
sembles the Goldfleld ore. and somo looks
llko the typical California quartz. Tho

Goldlleld continues to be productive of
reports . of rich strikes and rapid devel
opment. Ono of the strongest mining
companies whloh has recently been
formed Is the C. O. D. Mining company,

notion that this company owns only the
January claim, but It owns tho above
named chilms also. They are among tho
most valuable, prospectively, In tho camp,
and the development work now going on
will possibly show up another big bon
anza. Capt. John A. Hassell, Marshall Bond
and Louis Bond havo bought tho St. Ives
claim from Lockhart & Williams and in
corporated tho St. Ives Gold Mining and
Milling company to operate the same.
Capt. HassPll Is president of the com

Special to The Tribuno.
ISPIPEMING, Mich., Oct. 9. Walter
Fitch, one of the best-known mining
men In the Lake Superior region, has
accepted the general management of
the mines and smelters of the United
States Mining company, one of the
largcot corporations of ItB kind in
America, and is about to remove to
Salt Lake City to assume his new du
ties. For more- than thirty year9 Mr. Fitch
has been a resident of Marquette county
and for twenty years he hae been lo
cated at Champion, where for an ex
tended interval he haa been superin
tendent of the big Champion iron mine,
acquired by the steel corporations sev
eral months; ngo, and long pointed to
as a model property of the kind.
He is president of the board of con
trol of the Michigan college of mines
Mr. Fitch is a self-made man. He
was employed as a common miner on
first coming to the Lake Superior re
gion from England, and from that sta
tion ho long ngo attained high ranks
In the mining profession. The United
States company, whose practical af
fairs he will now direct, Is capitalized
at S21.000.000 and has only recently ac
quired additional claims valued at sev

"While getting tho mill In readiness
for operations, the development of tho
mine has not beon neglected, and last
week one of tho most important disclo
sures In the history of the property was
Some time ago Capt. Lawrence, the
manager, reached the conclusion, from
a careful study and Investigation of
the mine, that there wero big ore
bodies to the east of tho present open
ing?, nnd he ordered cross-cutting in
that direction Last week the judg
ment of tho captain was most emphati
cally verified, for a nev vein course has
been struck. Tills carries ore matter
at least twelve feet In width and par
allels the other veins. The values aro
of the same high-grade class found In
other veins on the property.
Another piece of development work
is the beginning of a new tunnel, No. 4,
about 1500 feet below the mill. This
tunnel is now in a distance of about
200 feet and already mineralized ground
has been encountered. There 13 every
indication that the big veins exposed
above will be found In this tunnel. This
will give a vein depth of over 1200 feet
and running back Into the mountain
nt least a mile. This, together with
the demonstrated ore zone in tunnels
Nos. 1, 2 and 3. and the recent discov
eries in crosscutling. give the Sevier
an area of ore ground that Is little
short of marvelous. Much of the ore
goes 575 to SS0 per ton, some of it goes
over a hundred., and there are fissures
which yield values In tho thousands.
While Capt. Lawrence and other
backers of this property had sufficient
faith in it to put up $100 000 to secure
It from Charles Lnmmersdorf, they
did not begin to anticipate the great
extent of its possible wealth until re
vealed by the development work of this
season. "It Is, without any flattery or
exaggeration, as great a property as I
have ever seen In my thirty years of
mining experience," says Capt. Law
rence, "and far exceeds my most san
guine expectations. We have enough
ore now in sight to task the mill for
years We have Just made the Junc
tion between No. 3 and No. 3 tunnels
by means of an upraise, and can now
handle the output of all the tunnels
through No 3 right to the mill. If
we get nothing more ihan -what is in
sight right now we have a big mine,
but with the latest developments we
have a property that it 1b impossible to
form any idea of its immensity."

QUINCT MINE CLOSED DOWN.
Will Bo Worked Through tho Daly
The Qulncy mine was closed down
Thursday evening and hereafter will bo
worked through the Daly West, all neces

move has been under consideration for
some time, as tho Qulncy hoist has really
been an unnecessary cxpenco on tho com

hereafter bo sent down through tho
