Standard Oil nnd Bclgo-Anierican
Syndicates Lined Hp in
Something Is doing in tho Wyoming oil
fields, Ju.st what it is no ono la In .1
H position to any; or. at leant, any ono who
naturally would bo expected to havo
knowledgo simply "winks the other oyo"
nnd remains silent.
To a man up a treo the Indications point
Hj to a strugglo between groat nyndlcatos
for control of the immense Holds in which
arc contained lncxhaustiblo deposits of
oil, according to tho report of every gc-
j ologlet who haB over examined tne
H country. ... .
Thceo two great (syndicates constitute
on tho ono sldo tho Standard Oil com-
1 pany and on the other tho Bclgo-Amcrl-
can Drilling trust.
Tho Standard Oil company Is too well
known to tho American public to need ln
trcxluctlon. Tho Belgo-Amcrlcan syndi
cntc is rapidly introducing Itself by its
1 aggressive policy and Its apparent length
Hl of pockctbeok.
AVyomlng expected during the past sea
son to witness such development of It3
oil llelds as has never before been exem
plincd In any State, says an exchnngo;
but tho development has not como. Hun
dreds of thousands of dollars of Wcsl-
l cm capital have been poured .Into tho
Uinta county Holds ojuI elsewhere in tho
State, but when dovolopmcnt has reached
f a certain stage work suddenly stops. Two
reasons nro assigned for this. One is thai
In many cafes, Just as soon as tho do
velopmont shows a strong flow of oil Is
to bo obtained, a good offer Is made tor
the property by somebody and a sale Is
mndc. That somebody stops work, who
ho Is 1b never accurately known- Pur-
r chases aro made through agencies, which
j are, very apparently, not tho powers tWit
arc buying up tho properties. Tho on.y
inference is that the Standard Oil cum
pnny la making tho purchases, although
f In some cases tho Belgo-Amerlcan peo-
pie havo been known to bo tho buyers.
The other reason why work Is stopped
when tho point of production is reached
1 Is because the workers bump Into Impos
.slblo freight rates. Hero again tho Stand
ard Oil company's hand Is seen, because
HL that company controls the directors of
tho railroads which havo exclusive cntrco
1 lo Wyoming's oil regions.
The Belgo-Amorican Drilling trust Is
composed of Belgian capitalists. That
H ihoy have money has been apparent from
the enormous aifiount of development
work they have been doing. That they
i Intend to "buck" tho Standard company
Is apparent from the character of their
operations. The Belgians aro now en-
Hl gaged In surveying, and, at somo points.
In tho actual construction of a railroad
to cross the State to their oil fields In
the Lander district. Until thoy announced
their determination to build the North
i western, which reaches to Casper, showed
no Inclination of Invading tho country, nl
though the d" nand for Its doing so was
1 vociferous.- Now It is hurriedly prosecut-
lng surveys lo Lander and thence to Thcr
mopolla. The line will parallel that of
the Belgians and enter Into competition
with It. with the usual object In view
j that of putting Its enemy out of exlst-
1 For tho Belgian company Gov. Chat-
terton of Wyoming Is quoted as saying
that funds aro plenty tor rushing tho
f road to completion. As to the Northwest-
orn's plans. It would seem activity Is ln
tended, becauso General Manuger Bld-
1 well and other officials aro now at Lan-
dei-. or at some point In Wyoming, to sec
1 that hard work la done. Sun-eying has
Hl Just been commenced.
Railroad transportation, especially
j through an Independent line. Is all that
1 "Wyoming needs for tho development of
Its great oil fields. That defect. It now
appears, will be rapidly remedied, so It
Is safe to say that Wyoming oil propor
' ties arc good to hold or to buy.

Nevada Supremo Court at Work on
-Goldfleld Mino Dispute.
The Jumbo Mining company litigation
assumed nnother phase this week nnd tho
matter is now in the Supreme court at
Carson. In the case of John McKane,
Kernlck and othrs against the Jumbo
Mining company, C. D, Taylor and others,
the defendants, by their attorneys, made
application to tho Supremo court for u
writ of certiorari and a writ of prohibition
on the ground that Judge Murphy had no
Jurisdiction to place the company's affairs
In the hands of a receiver. Upon hearing
the application the Supreme court Issued
tho writ calling up the records of tho Es
meralda County District court. Judge
Murphy was ordered to appear with his
record on December 31, and show cause
why the order appointing the receiver
should not be vacated. The writ of pro
hibition was refused. Pending a decision
from the higher court, the receiver still
retains possession of tho company's prop
erty, with full power to act.
In tho case of Jl D Ford vs. C. D. Tay
lor, tho defendant's counsel have trans
ferred the suit from Judge Murphy's court
to the United States District court at Car
son, but no date' has yet been set for hear
ing the arguments.

Capitol Hill District in El Dorado
Canyon, Nevada, Experiences
Of late thero havo been rumors of a
valuable discovery of ore near what is
known as Capitol Hill, In El Dorado can
yon mining district. Tho following ac
count of the camp comes from an ex
change: From El Dorado canyon In southeast
ern Nevada, seventy-flvo miles northwest
of Kingman, como stories of thofamulous
richness of a llnd of gold ore. 'Tho lead
it situated In the mountains ton miles from
tho Colorado river and a short dlstanco
from tho Tochltlcup, ono of tho oldest
mines In the camp. A largo quantity of
oro has bcon token out and samples from
this show its value to be about 530,000 In
gold to tho ton. Tho discoverers havo lo
cated two claims on tho lodo and aro
working vigorously on the original discov
ery. The wholo surrounding country Is
aroused and men aro rushing to tho camp
with every possible convoyanco and In a
fow wcekB 4 ho hills will bo allvo with
prospectors. Tho ore fiom the new llnd
is similar to that of tho Gold Road, but
tho gold Is massive and laces tho rock to
gether. Lator reports como from El Dorado can
yon that tho new tind, rccontly mado In
that camp, has been leased to a party of
mlnero from Searchlight, and theso leas
ors are taking out very rich oro. About
six ton3 of splendid ore Is now on tho
dump of the original discovery and sink
ing on tho vein Is In progress The strike
was made In a big porphyry dyko, running
with tho T.echlticup mine, and which was
heretofore supposed to bo barren. Tho
Tochltlcup Is now producing oro running
from MOO 10 $1000 to the ton. Many pros
pectors aro In tho hills and many more
are going thero dally. The camp promises
to be one of tho liveliest In tho Stato this
El Dorado canyon, tho scene of this late
excitement. Is ono of the oldest mining
camps In tho Stato of Nevada, the dis
covery of Its mines dating back to 1SG1,
when that section of tho country was part
of Dona Ana county. New Mexico, and
afterward a part of Mohave county, with
the seat of county government at Callvlllc,
at tho mouth of the Vegas wash At ono
tlmo the camp was one of tho busiest
and most prosperous of Nevada's mining
camps, two big mills being kept In oper
ation nnd several hundred men being em
ployed In the mines. At that time tho
principal ores of ihc camp carried high
values In silver, and when that metal be
came a commodity and depreciated In
value, the mines were closed nnd tho mills
wero silent, Chlorlders nnd miners mined
In a desultory way the past fifteen years
and kept a 9park of life In the old camp.
Now comes the news of the new rich
strlko and under Its revlyjfylng Influence
El Dorado canyon will become ono of tho
greatest mining camps on the coast.

Work on tho Corona Mine Shows
Th.it tho Lead Is
Great activity is now prevailing at tho
Corona mine at Park City. Under the
foremanshlp of John Hasson two shifts
aro making great progroso.
When work was first commenced on tho
Corona ground It was the Intention lo
sink a shaft to tap tho ore bodies thought
to exist at some depth. Accordingly tho
work started, but after an Incline shaft
had been sent down 200 feet or more, the
management realized that they could
reach their prospective point much easier
nnd cheaper by tunneling from tho base
of tho mountain, and two months later
tho plant was moved to the base of the
mountain and tho tunnel was begun. It
Is now In about 319 feet, so It can bo"
readily seen that excellent progress Is be
ing made, says tho Park Record. On ac
count of tho bad air but two shifts aro
being worked, and though the ground now
being worked through Is very hard, an
average of five feet a day 3 being made.
The management Is working toward the
cross-ilssuro vein which they expect to
cut In at a dlstanco of about SCO feet, and
a well-defined contact Is being followed.
When their objective point Is reached
they will have a vertical depth of 100 foot,
and a depth of 1200 feet on tho dip of the
vein. The tltlo to the ground, which has
been In dlsputo for somo time, was
cleared up last week, and now the man
agement Is free to go ahead nnd develop
without fear of being molested. The com
pany operating this property has been re
Incorporated, the articles having been
filed with the County Clerk of Salt Lako
county Inst Tuesday, and will hereafter
be known ns the Mount Masonic Mining

claims havo been carefully figured out by
mining exports, who aro of the opinion
that a big mine Is to be found somewhero
In this locality,, and Mr. Hasson Is of tho
opinion that ho Is at present on the right
"lead" to get It. As soon ns tho cross
fl6suro Is reached Interesting develop

with tho result, asll goes to show more
clearly than anything else could that
the mine Is In a position to pay Its own

The drift on the 600-level has been worked
for about fifty-feet now nnd tho high

and the percentage of lead has Increased
as work has progressed. Sinking Is also
being prosecuted in tho winze, It being
now forty feet below tho COO-lcvel and
when the llfly-foot mark Is reached tho
