CONGIESS MINE IS INTO
A NEW ORE BODY
FAMOUS OLD PRODUCER IS AGAIN
New Ore Body at but Short Distance
From the Old Believed That It
Will Prove to Be Richer Than the
A writer la the Los Angeles Min
ing Review has the following to say
01 the Congress mine:
The report that a large body ofWhn hronu i hinwino- it i imnct
nign-graae ore naa Deen encoumerea
In one "of the lower workings at the
Congress gold mine, Arizona, is con
firmed. For many years the Con
gress was Arizona's greatest gold
mine, but when something over 3,500
leet of depth had been reached the ore
began to show signs of leanness, and
after a long hunt for richer ores the
owning company concluded to stop
further work below, and attention was
devoted to the tailings, which were
being cy&nided. But it was not easy
to settle down to a belief that the rich
ores of the Congress had "petered"
out, so, while no attempt was made
to hoist ore, it was decided to go on
a "still-hunt" for new ore bodies. The
hunt ha3 resulted In finding what the
more optimistic of the larger stock
holders of the owning company (The
Development Company of America!
had persistently affirmed, the exist
ence of another ore body at no great
distance from the one which had
been furnishing the richer ore.
The Congress mine Is located thirty
miles west of Prescott. in Yavapai
county, hut the distance by rail is
about seventy miles. It is connected
to the main line of the Santa Fe, Pres
cott & Phoenix railway by a branch
line two and one-half miles, in length i
from Congress Junction. The ele
vation is about 3000 feet. Congress !
has a population, when the mine Is
being worked, of about 1400. one-third
of whom are usually employed in or
about the mine.
The property Is cne of the best
equipped In Arizona. There are two
stamp mills and one of the complet

IN SPITE OF REPORTS THAT THE
TROUBLE IE NEAR AN END
WATER IS STILL RISING
Monday's Arizona Republics con
tains the following con;eniinj the Sal
ton sea, which has attracted the attcn
tlon of the entire county during ths
last two weeks:
"Reports from some quarters to the
contrary notwithstanding, it seems to
have been pretty well established dar
ing the past week, that the Salton Sea
Is at least holding its own if not con
tinually rising and the longer It stays
at high tide the more it soaks things
up and gives the breakers a chance to
undermine and wash awny the rail
road grade. The latest news is in an
article quoting a Southern Pacific of
ficial, that was printed in the Los
Angeles Times of Saturday, arriving
here yesterday and which is reproduc
ed as follows:
"'That the rising Salton sea will
suck down the main line of the South
ern Pacific at Salton is now believed
to be inevitable by officials of that
company. But the rising waters of tne
sink will be checkmated in good time,
for the track which the company is
now rushing through on higher ground
from Salton ten miles to Mortmere
will be connected and ready for serv
ice next Tuesday. Barring a sudden
high wind between now and that time,
which would toss the waters of the
lake up over the tracks which they
are now lapping in the calm, there
will be no interruption of traffic.
" 'In spite of all the efforts made to
check it, the water is still pouring
from the Colorado river through the
intake of the California Development
company's canal in a huge volume and
the level of the Inland sea continues
steadily to rise.
" 'General Superintendent Ingram,
who returned from Salton yesterday,
says: 'We shall doubtless get the
shoo-fly track completed in good time.
It will reach ground six or eight feet
higher than the present track and
therefore well out of reach of the ris
ing wafer. It will make our line about
3,000 feet longer, and from present ap-j
pearances is likely to serve more than
a temporary end.
We held off building this track,
just as long as there was any hopej
of saving the main line.

but an ultimate abandonment of the

"There are from 250 to 350 men
at work on the Southern Pacific tracks
in the threatened district, that being
all that can be worked advantageously
on the job. Small waves were report
ed running on the inland sea yester
day, but they were not breaking over
"Travelers who came from California
on yesterday morning's train verify all
that is mentioned above and go into
more detail concerning the situation,
though they say there is nothing
alarming about the situation to the
traveling public. It Is the railroad
company that has the worrying to do.
The trains are more or less delayed
owing " to the necessity of traveling
very slowly through the sea or more
accurately the swamp, - At one time
Saturday there were four passenger
trains, eastbound, blockaded near Sal

on without Injury. The blockade was
caused by a couple of ttnk cars that
had been overturned and It took some
time to clear the track.

party met with hard luck on the start
this morning, a3 one of the Mexican
laborers in the party was thrown from

'during the past two or three years.
In fact, the mines in that setcion are
reaching a stage of development where
the railroad don't cut much figure in
their future success, although they
would be of ereat benefit in brincinc

the nearest railroad towns.
For the above information the Je
rome Mining News is indebted to
James Noel who has been in Jerome
during the past week on business con
nected with mines in that district in
which he is interested. He has been
there during the past eighteen months
developing what is known as the Sin
gle Standard Gold mines. Of this
property Mr. Nole says:
"These mines are located in Gila
county, about four miles south from
the town of Payson. and -with me are
interested Messrs. T. E. Campbell,
E. L. Jordon and Lyons & Knoblock.
We have sunk a good working shaft,
4xC feet, to a depth of 100 feet, and
have run drifts on the ledge 200 feet
The ledge or vein is five feet wide in
the drift, the ore assaying from flO
to $50 per ton. There is now on the
dump about 100 tons of tha class of
ore. There is considerable water in
the mine which makes the work of
development very slow. We are now
however, awaiting the arrival of a
hoist and pump, which will enable us
to continue the shaft down to a depth
of 500 feet. In the drift we have a
very strong vein of ore, which grows
richer with depth."

The party will work between that

A WARNING TO MOTHERS.
Too much care can not be used with
small children during the hot weath
er of tho summer months to guard
against bowel troubles. As a rule it
is only necessary to give the child a
'dose of castor oil to correct any dis
order of the bowels. Do not use any
s-ubstltute, but give the old-fashioned
castor oil. and see that it is fresh, as
rancid oil nauseates and has a tenden
cy to gr'pe. If this does not check
the bowels give Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and
then a dose of castor oil, and the dis
ease may be checked in its incipency
and all danger avoided. The caster
oil and this remedy should be procur
ed ct once and kepi ready for instant
use as soon as the first indication of
any bowel trouble appears. This is
the most successful treatemtn known
and may be, relied upon with implicit
confidence even in cases of cholrea
infantum. Fur sale by all dealers In
