Reports From Many Dlstriots In the
Territory, Telling of Important
Active Operations and Organization
of New Companies
Tho situation in Mexico resulting from
the dynamite famine is rapidly becoming
acute. A few days apo a petition
was sent by telegraph to President Uiaz
asking for some relief. There is a
prohibitive duty of $210 per ton on dy
namite. The Mexican national monopoly
which has the solo right to bring
dynamite into the republic free has en
tered into an agreement as agent to
the American trust. It is pointed out
that after allowing wide margins for
all possible expenses there is a net pro
fit of $6.65 per case, or $226 per ton, or
$5320 Der car for the company. The
miners feel that this bonus is exhorbi
tant and unjust and ask for immediate
For thirty years Prof. Douglas has
studied the west and now stands at the
head of the greatest mining
to be found in this section of the
country. The companies, of which he
is now the head, including the railroads,
are today probably giving employ
ment to 10,000 men in Arizona, Mexico
and Sonora, Mexico. He could give
mining congress some very interesting
information about tho development of
the mining industry in the southwest
had he the time and inclination. Since
Professor Douglas entered tho mining
industry inArizona there have been rapid
strides in the discovery and application
of new methods and machinery in
extracting values from ores. It was
he who first installed the converter process
in Arizona after he had traveled to
the great copper mines in Spain and
studied it.The first converter ever operated
in the territory was in Bisbee
about 15 years ago. Now there is not
a copper plant in Arizona without a
converter. The converter method has
saved many of the low grade camps and
without it many of the present producing
copper camps would be deserted.
Growing Importance of the Mining Industry.

Yavapai county is about to be started
on the Octave group.
A miner in conversation with the
Courier man last evening said that in
the union mine, thsre is eight feet of
ore between walls which will average
$-10 per ton gold.
C. Douglas Brown, of Brown Bros.,
has returned from Kansas where lie
made arrangements with the Hichinbar
Co. to install for them at their mines ten
additional stamps to the mill and a CO
h. p. boiler. Mr. Brown returned bj
way of Denver where he made
with the P.M. Davis Iron Works
company for the machinery.
Supt. Goodloe, of the congress mine,
states that everything is working
smoothly at tho Congress property.
Some time ago an important ore strike
was made in this mine which insures
its permanency. A largo number of
men are now at work at Congress opening
up new ore bodies.
John S. Jones brought in from the
Jesse camp a bar of extra pure gold
weighing about 12-1 ounces, the product

The Jessie Mines company is preparing
to install a CO-stamp mill, crushers,
amalgamation and cyanide processes.
The company also proposes to erect at
its power plant two 350 kilowatt electric
generators, which equals in capacity
900 horse power, and four 250 horse
power boilers of the type generally
Known as me acoicn marine Doner.
The object in having doublo the power
necessary to run tho plant in generators
js to give positive assurance at all time
that no shut down will bo necessary on
account of any breakage or accident
that wijl't occur to the generator in
use. it will require nuout oj miies oi
pipe lino to connect the large underground
storage reservoir situated above
tho Jesse mine, which will supply the
mill and reduction plant with water.
This reservoir will have a capacity of
over 1,000,000 gallons. Tho Jessie
mine was located in the year 1889, and
since that time has produced aooui
$800,000 in gold besides there is about
$700,000 worth of a lower grade ore on
tho dump already mined and ready to
mill, with immense ore bodies in the
mine opened up.
From tho .leromo .Mining News.
The work of removing the ore from
the fire district in the United Verde
mine is progressing very satisfactorily,
and there is no doubt but that all may
be removed from the fire district.
A Prescott paper insists that men employed
in the lire district are compelled
to wear a covering over the face while
at work. At times, while handling the
finer ore, they wear something over the
nose for protection against the dust,
the same as they havo to do in any
part of the mine. Last month Superintendent
Tom Taylor made a record-breaking
run with the United Verde
smelter, and it is thought that the output
this month will bo greater than
that of last.
Week's Mining News as Reported
by tho Miner
Over fifty men are now employed on
the Minnesota-Connor mines and ore
shipments will soon be made to the
smelters. The ore bodies recently opened
up arc much richer and extensive
than those on the upper levels and the
section this week. He reports mining
matters in that section looking prosperous
and that it is the general belief
that this winter will see more activity
along the river range than ever before
Many new mines arc being developed
and a number of rich strikes arc re
ported. The Gold Road mill continues
to turn out its usual big bars of bullion
and the mine is getting better every
James Uncapher, of Mineral Park,
was in Kingman a few days this week.
He reports that the drift into the foot-
wall of the Keystone mine has opened
up an immense body of rich ore. So
far the drift is all in ore and its value
is away above anything ever taken
from the mine in its palmy days. It is
presumed that when this body has been
exploited a cross-cut will be run from
cha bottom drift to cut the chute. The
Keystone is one of the best mines in
Wallapai district and only needs development
to put it among the big producers
of the territory.

A well founded rumor comes from
Boston that in the very near future the
capital stock of the Calumet & Arizona
company, operating in the Warren district
will be doubled. The capitalization
which is now $?,500,000, will be increased
to $5,000,000. The entire five
millions of stock, it is said, will bo divided
into 500.000 shares at the par
value of $10, and two shares of the new
stock will be given to holders for every
share of the old. Four hundred thous
and shares will be issued and 100,000
shares will be kept in the treasury. It
is also reported from the same source
that a dividend of either $2.50 or $3
will be paid on the old stock on December
Supt. W. F. Stanton said to a Republican
reporter: "At Tombstone the
main shaft of the big Consolidated
Mines company is down 840 feet and
sinking continues at the rate of nine
feet per week, which is rapid work,
considering the depth, tho size of the
shaft, the water and all other conditions
that necessarily obtain. The
water, however, is less troublesome
than some time ago, and there is daily
pumped out of the mine 3,700,000 gal-Ions.
The company is shipping from
80 to 90 tons of ore to El Paso daily.
Work on the mill is progressing rapidly
and the company expects to have its
forty stamps in operation next month.

O. P. Lovejoy, of Boston, who is interested
in tho Chase Creek Copper
company, arrived last week and is giving
the camp a careful examination.
He is agreeably surprised at the magnitude
and development of the district
finding it far beyond his expectations.
He is also pleased with the location and
property of the Chase Creek company,
which, beyond doubt, has a future
equal to the best of them.
Work is progressing rapidly on tho
construction of the Shannon converter
plant. The steel frame for the building
is in place and the foundation walls
for the plant are about completed. A
new engine will also in placed so that
there will be ample power at all times.
It is expected that the plant will be
running by January, after which the
Shannon can claim one of the most com
plete and modern plants in the territory.
The plant is not as large as
some in the territory, but it can be
added to under the original plans as occasion
may require. The Shannon company
will soon be ready to do a regular
custom business in treating ores and
will save the value of precious metals
as well as the copper in the ore. This
will be of great advantage to the dis
trict and will doubtless be the means of
opening many mines that are now idle,
the ores of which carry other values besides
copper, but which are too low

Mining New Reported by our Arizona
W. F.Stanton, general manager says:
"At Imperial the ore shipments are 100
tons daily. They are 80 feet below the
500-foot level, in high grade ore and
are still sinking. The mine is developing
beyond expectation in point of ore
bodies, both in size and values. The
management is now at work on plans
for a smelter and concentrating mill.
The capacity of the smelter will be 300
tons per day to begin with, .but the
plant will be so constructed that 300
ton units may be added from time to
time as the development of the proper
ty may necessitate. During the first
year, since the shipment or ore began,
the out put of the mine has been 7,000,-000
pounds of copper. The prceont
rate of production is 600,000 pounds of
copper per month."
The Kelvin Reduction company held
a public meeting at Kelvin at which it
announced h's plans and intentions to
the people. This company'has recently
taken over mines at Ray and proposes
to do a large amount of development
work. Attorney Langston says that
never before has there been such ac

time arouud Kelvin.
Messrs. Brown, Smith and Cato are
at work on a group of mining claims
they recently located near the head of
box canyon. The group consists of
eight claims and, according o rumor,
the group has been bonded to Mr. Gibson,
of Globe, for $30,000, the bond
calling for $5000 down and the balance
in 6 and 12 months.
Gene Woodbury has taken a contract
to run 100 feet of tunnel on the old
Eureka mine situated near Superior.
This is the property recently taken over
by Mr. Gibson, of Globe, under a working
bond. It has been developed to a
considerable extent and some good ore
bodies have been uncovered in the workings
The contained values are copper,
gold and silver.
There is steadily increasing activity
in the Superior district and everything
indicates that several more great mines
will be developed there soon. We have
always believed and contended that the
famous old Silver King mine was not
alone in that region and that intelligent
prospecting and development would
eventually demonstrate the truth of
our contention. The developments at
Superior havo already proven it and it
looks at present as if there would be
still further confirmation of

Freight Rates to the Fair
The railroad companies have agreed
to make special freight rates on exhibits
to the Fair as follows: On shipments
to the Fair full rates will be
charged and exhibits will bo returned
free, provided they have not changed
ownership. On fruit shipmenta full
rates will be charged and if, after the
close of the Fair the fruit is worthless
some of the roads will refund all and
others one-half of the freight paid. On
minerals full rates will be charged gong
and returned .free; if allowed to remain
as a permanent exhibit some con
cession will be made, to be announced
later. Passenger rates on all the main
line roads will be two (2) cents per
mile each way and on some of the
branch roads one fare for the round
trip has been named.
THE COPPER QUEEN'S
$2,500,000 ORE PILE
Did you ever see a body of ore in one
huge pile that is worth over $2,500,000?
If not, go out to the Copper Queen
smelter and take a look at its reserves,
strung along the railroad track.
inis immense ore dump, kept on
nand lor emergency, in ca3e an accident
to the railroad should prevent
shipments from the mines, is 2,500 feet
long, 40 feet wide, and 16 feet thick,
which equals 1,600,000 cubic feet
proximately 123,000 tons of ore
This body of ore is all fluxed and prepared
for the furnaces and will average
7 per cent.
Taking this percentage as a basis for
figuring the value for the entire body
it would give 17,220,000 pounds of cop
per, allowing 140 pounds of copper to
the ton. This would make each ton of
ore worth $21.00 in copper bullion, or a
total valuation of $2,582,000. Douglas
