ALBUQUERQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
Finest Quality In the World Is
Mined In the Alunogen
BLOCKS OF PUREST
Principal Discoveries Have Been
Made In Diablo Mountains 40
Miles Northeast of Sliver City.
200 Acres Show Signs of
Silver City, N. M.. June 3. In the
last three years the prices of raw
meerschaum have about doubled, and
at the same time American and Eng
land have secured control of prac
tically all the meerschaum to be had.
Heretofore the supply of this pe
culiar mineral has come from Tur
key, in Asia Minor, although it Is
found In some of the other Oriental
countries; but It Is not produced in
paying quantities outside of Turkey,
except In Lividia, Oreece, where It Is
of an Inferior and uncertain quality.
Recently meerschaum has been
found in the Alunogen mining dis
trict. New Mexico, and a chemical
analysis has shown that much of It
Is of a better quality than the Turk
ish mineral, but thus far only a few
tons have been shipped .owing to the
Inaccessibility of the mines, there be
ing only a trail leading from the
mines to Plnos Altos, twenty miles.
A wagon road Is now being built, and
when completed work at the mines
will be begun on a commercial scale.
The mines are owned and will be
worked by the Meerschaum company
of America, with headquarters In
New York City.
Has I tec 1 1 Turkish Monopoly.
The monopoly which has been the
perquisite of the Turkish government
will probably disappear. As In the
case of the meerschaum deposits In
Turkey those In New Mexico are lo
calized. In New Mexico there are
certain veins which are confined to
the upper Gila river district In Grant
county; more specifically the mines
are situated In the Diablo range of
mountains, about forty miles north
east of Silver City, and about twenty
miles northwest of Plnos Altos to
which a branch of the Santa Fe rail
road runs from Demlng to the South
ern Pacific line.
l) M)slts Cover 200 Acres.
To ascertain the extent of these
deposits the entire surrounding coun
try has been explored, and It has
been learned that outside of an area
of a little over 2"0 acres there are
no veins of meerschaum. Within this
district there are numerous volcanic
blowouts, veins, outcrops, float and
other deposits of the mineral, from
which there have been stripped two
true fissure veins for upwards of 1,
f.OO feet each, and which carry be
tween strongly defined walls meer
schaum varying in width up to 200
Ilciilt of Volcanic Action.
Geologically, meerchaum Is the re
sult of volcanic action, as It Is evi
dent by the lava of considerable depth
which covers a large part of the areas
in which it Is found In Asia Minor
and New Mexico. The rock forma
tion which Includes the meerschaum
bearing veins (consists of massive
sections of sedimentary conglomerate
and sandstone strata, probably of the
Tiiassic age. That all the veins are
vertical and give Indisputable evi
dence througn their geological forma
tion and the splitting apart of the
volcanic conglomerate, is further con.
firmed by the blowouts and deposits
of flout which have been discovered.
This Is also evident from the nodules
of pure meerschaum of various sizes
that are obtainable for the surface
material, which after It had been
subjected to the decomposing action
or the elements was Impregnated by
vegetable matter and the seepage of
oilier minerals In solution for cen
turies. Physically, meerschaum when thor
oughly seasoned is a hard and Com
pact mass. In this condition It Is
most difficult to cut, and almost Im
possible to break. After being dried
Dr. Ernest Van So me re n,
the celebrated Italian authority, says
food should be chewed until it is prac
tically in liquid form before it is
swallowed. Dr. Liebig, the great Ger
man chemist, says that beer is "liquid
bread" a genuine food in liquid form.

It Is so light that It will float on wa
ter, yet after It has been Immersed
for some time it will absorb the liq
uid like a sponge, but quickly yields
It up again after being removed.
Cannot lie Humeri.
Meerschaum cannot be burned, and
It Is one of the best Insulators of
heat, cold nnd electricity. It Is very
white or yellowish-white In color, and
of so great variety that no two pieces
In 100.000 examined have been found
to be exactly of the same composi
tion. One piece may be light, an
other a little heavier, snd yet an
other almost as heavy as stone, while
some may be soft but become harder
and heavier after being smoked as
a pipe, although occasionally the re
verse Is true and some pieces when
made Into pipes soften and become
Chemically, meerschaum Is a sili
cate of magnesium, and in this re
spect Is like soapstone and serpentine,
all these minerals belonging to the
same species of magnesite, the car
bonate of magnesium.
According to tests of the newly
discovered meerschaum made by
analytical chemists, this substance
should have In the purest state the
following structural formula: Silica.
60.87 per cent; magnesia. 20. SO per
cent; alumina; ferric oxide. 0.09 per
cent; water, 11.24 per cent.
The Impurities In meerschaum
consist mainly of organic matter and
calcium oxide, the quantity varying
according to conditions, as for In
stance the location and the depth at
which the specimen Is procured. An
alysis made, as stated below, give
these Impurities in varying quantities,
due to the fact that the samples test
ed were (rom surface formations and
from different localities. All of the
specimens, however, possessed silica
and magnesia the Important ele
ments in meerschaum In the follow
ing quantities: Silica, 43.40 to 60.41
per cent; magnesia, 8.64 to 21 per
cent; calcium oxide. 3.50 to 14.40 per
cent; alumina; ferric oxide. 1.14 to
13.06 per cent.
It Is believed from borings made
that at depth these Impurities will be
eliminated and that practically pure
meerschaum will be found. In size
and quantity surprisingly large.

smoothest beggars who ever visited
Phoenix. She is Mrs. Lydia Smith
and she has some new wrinkles In
her system of appealing to people's
About a month ago Mrs. Smith
came to Phoenix In a wagon, drawn
by two poor old horses. She had two
little children with her, whom she
said were starving. She told a tale
of woe. She had started from some
where In Texas to Join her parents
In Yuma, but In Itoswell, N. M..
she was quarantined because of an
epidemic of scarlet fever. Her little
store of money had been eaten up,
and when she got to Phoenix she
and her children were actually in
Over $30, besides a large store of
food, was given her by charitably
disposed people here. Mrs. Smith
thanked them for their gifts, and
with a seemingly grateful heart con
tinued on her Journey to Yuma.
When she struck Yuma she had
the same tale to tell, but this time
her parents vere in Los Angeles.
Again were site and her babies in
want. Again was her story believed
and she was pitied by all who heard
It. Fourteen dollars were raised for
her in the prison city, and her wagon
was again amply stocked with provis
ions. A man, woman and children Join
ed her at Yuma und the outfit start
ed north together.

HAS BEGUN AT
Case Was Opened Saturday
and Is Being Fought With
NEW PLAN FOK
TAKING THE PROOF
Phoenix. Ariz.. June 3. The trial
of the great priority suit of Hurley
against Abbott and others has at last
begun. The case was opened Satur
day morning. Some little time was
spent In the disposition of prelimi
nary motions, after which proof con
cerning the priority of the lands of
the plaintiff was put In. The rest of
the day was given to making arrange
ments for the offering of proof con
cerning the status of the lands of tne
four thousand and odd defendants.
A plan was readily agreed upon
and It was announced by the court
Just before adjournment, that on the
resumption of the case at half past
nine o'clock this morning the court
would take up the sections of land In
township 1. north of range 3 east,
lying south of the Salt River- Valley
canal and north of the river, begin
ning with the eastern section.
Wnntoil Change of Venue.
At the beginning of the trial mo
tion for a change of venue on the
ground of bias, was offered by u. i'.
Klelman representing the sharehold
ers of the Mesa Canal. Tne motion
was presented by Judge Street. It
was denied on the ground that It was
defective In form and that the prop
er notice had not been given. Speak
ing further of the motion, Judge Kent
said that it would be granted only by
asking one of the other Judges of
the territory In to try the case. He
had consulted with the other mem
bers of the bench regarding the case
Judges Nave and Sloan were found
to be disqualified by reason of being
land owners In the valley, and
Judges Campbell and Doan are so
busily engaged In their own districts
that they would be unable to sit in
the case before next September.
Judge Kent further said that he could
find no legal reason for granting the
Speaking of the affidavits of those
who had alleged bias, the court said
it was useless to say anything to
them, but he would assert that he
had not made up his mind concern
ing any of the propositions which
had been presented and that he could
impartially try this case.
Several Defendant Head.
The deaths of several of the de
fendants were suggested and orders
were made substituting administra
tors or others for them and the case
was begun. The witnesses for the
plaintiff were Lon Teal, L. W. Col
lins and J. P. Ivy. There were many
formal objections to the proof and
when the plaintiff rested, Walter Ben
nett representing several of the de
fendants, moved to dismiss. Judge
Street for the Mesa canal stockhold
ers, offered a similar motion. Roth
were denied and arrangements begun
to be made for the taking of testi
mony for the defense.

TWO JURORS CLAIM
Surprise Will be Sprung When
Motion Is Made For New
Trial For Roach.
Douglas, Ariz., June 3. One of lh
surprises to be sprung by Attorney
Leroy Anderson In arguing the mo
tion for a new trial for T. ;. Uaeh.
convicted of murder In the second
degree at this term of the district
court, for the killing of Jack Fletch
er, will be the affidavits of four of
the trial Jurors, who declare that two
of the Jurors stated in the jury room
that they were perfectly familiar
with the Crown King country and
knew that Koach was lying when he
testiiled that he spent the night on
which Fletcher met his death at the
hands of an assassin, In a deserted
mining camp near Crown King, for
the reason that there was no deserted
mining camp in that vicinity.
This statement was not made until
after the first ballot was taken, which
resulted in seven voting for acquittal
and four for conviction, one Juror
not voting. After the statement was
made by these two Jurors the Jury
arrived at a verdict of guilty in the
on these affidavits of the state
ments of the two Jurors, which At
torney Anderson will argue preju

it is believed counsel f ir Iioach will
endeavor to show that he Is insane at
present, at least, hoping thus to have
him declared insane and twnt to the
asylum at Phoenix Instead of the
penitentiary at Yuma, where, it it
agreed by all who are acquaint e.i
with Koach, he would soon die, an he
