BISBEE DAILY REVIEW,
SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 2 2, 190i.
IN THE HINING FIELD
Operations of Interest Throughout the County of
Cochise, Arizona and Sonora
GIVE US A HAND,
WATCH THE RESULT.
The mining department of the Re
view desires the co-operation of mining
men and mining managements all over
Arizona. We are pleased to acknowl
edge courtesies from innumerab'e
sources. We always go straight to
headquarters for information, and
never violate confidence.
Ocasionally we run into a two-bit
straw boss -who gets lofty, but the man
away up in authority is always cour
teous and obliging.
We -want to know everything about
your property that you are willing to
se in print, nothing more. We have
a hundred inside pointers every day
which we do not publish, for the reas
on that we have no risht to expose your
business. We have always dealt square
ly with miners and companies, which
doubtless accounts for the good treat
ment we almost invariably receive at
their hands. We are as proud of our
department as an oldmaid with her
first set of false teeth and have met
with a flattering measure of encoraee
ment The Bisbee Dally Review is the
only daily in Arizona that makes its
mining pace a permanent feature ev
ery day the paper appears, and doesn't
wear out very many scissors.
We are endeavoring to do justice to
the magnificent mining field in which
we happen to be established and desire
the cordial co-operation of every citi
zen in the wonderful belt whose future
we are endeavorinc to promote.
THE SOLOMON SPRINGS
1 COPPER COMPANY
We visited the Solomon Springs Cop
per company's property last Thursday.
There is no guessing about what we
saw." The majestic lime and iron dyke
rises and plunges, cutting through the
mountains, stretching across canyons
and diving under mesas as far as the
eve can measure, and finally vanishes
in the far distant hills of Sonora. The
Solomon Springs Copper company's
property covers this wonderful forma
tion from Gold Gulch to the railroad.

resembles the formation on the Calu
met and Arizona and the Lowell prop
erties, in the language of our es
teemed friend. Jack Connelly, it Is
what they call "old hat." such as is
found in th rear of the change room
on the Holbrook. one of the old, relia
ble Copper Queen producers.
The main property embraces four
teen claims, besides several recent lo
cations. Applications for patent are in
on nine of these claims. FTom surface
indications and the results of devel
opment work, which included several
shipments, those best acquainted with
the property have named it "The Irish
Meg, No. 2." From a shaft over 100
feet' deep some elegant carbonates
have been taken, and the Indications
were Improving when operations were
suspended and preparations put in mo
tion towards installing a hoist A whim
has been employed on the shaft up to

per in which silver is well represented.
At the headquarters is a 135-foot tun
nel, which has furnished some great
surprises in the form of modest look
ing ore which assayed as high as a
thousand ounces silver. $60.00 gold and
14 per cent copper. The ledge in this
tunnel is from ten inches to ten feet
-wide, and has been a shipper for a
long time. "
Tt has ben demonstrated that the prop
erty can be easily handled so as to pay
the expense of development as it tuca
along, a very remarkable recommen
dation for a property in a deep min
ing district. Notwithstanding that de
velopment work of considerable conse
quence has been done, tneir cniei
source of encouragement arises from
the wonderful formation just described
he great dyke of lime with ledges of
hematite standing out in places like
big iron fins. The situation of the
camp in other respects Is an ideal one.
Precipitous mountains slope away In
to undulating mesas offering every
facility for pleasant camp as well as
for developmenL An abundance of
water can be supplied at a minimum
outlay. The property is about' eight
miles southeast of Bisbee in the cele
brated Warren district, and joins the
Copper Glance on the north. It comes
up to the El Paso and Southwestern
rallorad, a spur having been provided
for the accommodation of the camp.
K The company has a commodious head
quarters a little over a quarter of a
mile from the shaft. The country at
, this point begins to slope away to-;

Incidentally. Uncle Dave's good old
beef and home-made bread came in
rather handy to the hungry newspaper
man. who had been whetting sole leath
er off on the interesting formation in
that locality for several miles.
THE MARQUETTE AND ARIZONA
This camp is about a mile south, and
a little east of the Copper Glance.
Their surface lay out is very similar to
that of the Brophy property, and a
strike in one practically insures the
success of the other.
These people have most of their
bi'tisting machinery on the ground and
are fitting themselves together to do
tusinrss. The country in their local
ity is not very rough, and the camp
is beautifully situated as regards liing
oor.d.'iions. They will probably have
nothing definite to give out until their
hoist is in place and they have ac
quired some depth.
THE BISBEE WEST AND
WHAT THEY ARE DOING
We are pleased to observe that the
EislH-e West is doing business in dead
earnest. Their new shaft Is down
265 feet and is progressing through
shaly lime, and the line of fracture
fol'ow consecutively as the shaft goes
down. They have encountered bunch
es of iron in ever increasing abund
ance during the progress of the shaft,
which carries a small percentage of
copper. The management are highly
encouraged at the indications in the
shaft, and would not be surprised at
a handsome field any day. The Bis
bee West people have shown remarka
ble pluck and perseverance under
many difficulties, and we hope they
will be rewarded with a big ore body
at an early day.
ALONG THE OLD LINE
As fast as a property approaches the
critical stage where discoveries are to
be expected, the mining public holds
its breath. The Lowell is evidently
preparing to "work." The array of ad
ditional power recently put in would
indicate that it had passed the strict
exploration stage and was ready to
"produce." There has never much
been said about the Lowell, they just
kept on "sawing wood." and going
down. There are undoubtedly great
ore bodies in the Lowell, with a ten
dency to tip towards the Calumet and
Pittsburg. There is no plausible reas
on why the Lowell should not have as
big and as rich an ore body as the
Calumet and Arizona.

THE SOUTH BISBEES
NUMBER TWO AND THREE
These people are so situated that
they are not disposed to herald their
discoveries to the world. The object
in suspending development operations
, on the No. 3, is hardly clear to the
public, but the fact remains teat they
both have ore in a form, quality and
quantity that puts them on the basis of
a mine. The No. S has the water un

LUCKY TIGER COMBINATION
A message from B. F. Graham, who
together with Te Benton, has been
in Kansas Citv for the pan few days,
states that the organization of the
I.uckv Tiger Combination Gold Mining
Co., is now completed. The company
was organized tinder the laws of the
territory of Arizona, and as stated
before in thes columns, the capital
ization Is $650 000. 65 000 shares at
$10.00 each. "30.000 shares of this
amount is treasury stock and 25.000
shares promoters stock, which is to
be held in escrow and sold In case the
product of the mine will not meet de

known that nn of the stronger banks
of Kansas Citv will furnish all funds
