(STRICT MAKES GREAT ADVANCEMENT DURING 1012
F FT! PER CE
m pnpocD n
The Past One has Been a Good Year for Bisbee and Sur
rounding District and Future Was Never Brighter;
Shattuck Resumed Production on a Five Year Ore
Contract at C & A. Smelter - Both Copper Queen
and C. & A. Expected to Make Greater Increase in
Production During 1913. Last Two Months Were
MANY NEW FEATURES
Increase In the output of the mines by nearly fifty per cent, higher
xvages. shorter hours and more men employed were Borne of the good
things that 1912 brought to Hlsbee am! the Warren District
One year ago the mines ot the district were shipping to the smelters
at Douglas r.bout 4,000 tons per day. I-ast month the ore shipments
v:ere closer to 6,000 tons per day oa the average. Then wages had been
raised from $3.25 and $3.50 to $3.75. Now the mucker is getting his
$3.73 and the miner $4. Then the day's -work was eight hours under
ground exclusive o fthe time going and coming from and to the mouth
o fthe shaft an dtaken for lunch, while now the day 1 eight hours from
collar to collar and the men lunch o n the company's time, making the
actual work day something less than seven and a half hours instead of
something more than eluhL It has Deeu a good year for Bisbee.
During the year 191? Shattuck besan shipping in important quantities
and largely increased its force. This year shipments Irom that prorerty
will be further increased to double the present dailj ot-lput of 250 tons.
The rear will see an Increase In the output of the C. and A. mines a3
well and the Copier Queen may be expected to still further enlarge it
output. It cannot be expected that j year hence will show fifty per cent
more ore going to the smelters as has been done in the past twelve,
months but a further substantia! growth can he expected. When Calumet
and Arizona has its new smelter complete it will be able to handle consid
erable more than at the present timo and there Is always the probability
ot other properties starting up. Thereto reason to expect much in the yea
r which has juet opened, reason !oexect more than a continuance of th
e present prosperity which is nowboing enjoyed. There are no indlcat
ions of falling metal prices and maintenance of present figures is h
guaranty of continued heavy prpduc-tlon. lji55SSiH

Rumors Are Heard
Recently there have been heard
several rumors that appear to have
n"1' their "rfpn in the east, but
?.". yet cannot oc vennea or
denied. One of these is to the effect
that there is to be an amalgamation
between C; and A. and Saginaw and
that the stock of the latter is tr be
taken over in exchange for the former
on a basis of seven shares of Saginaw

Will Be Erected at
T.EWISSOHNS AT WORK
TUCSON. Jan. 1. It is reported
.hat zngiueer Downing, in charge of
operations in Olive Camp, has made
such headway in demonstrating the
ore bodies as to warrant the recom
mendation ot a 100,ton plant being
erected at once. A lead-silver fur
nace will probably be installed to
handle the ores of this coming camp,
as well as ores from the surrounding
districts and Mexico.
Adjacent to Olive aCmp, the Em--pire
Zinc company will probably
erect works for the treatment of zinc
ores. This will be a modern process
which successfully separates the lead-silver-rinc
and copper ores.
The Lewisohns are carrying on the
work In the Rosemont district, Santa
Rita mountains, in a very quiet way,
but witb most encouraging results.
They hare owned a large number if
patented claims in this district tor
years, upon 'which no work has been
done for a long time. Recently they
acquired additional claims In the por
phyry, which will goon be drilled and
should this new ground prove to be
of -commercial value another low grade
camp will be trough t into existence

The device is a leather sole, which
fits so snugly over the sole of an
ordinary shoe. On the bottom of the

the letters and when the foot is taken
off the sidewalk the letters leave

the city anyone can advertise hit
The possibilities In this line of
advertising are simply unlimited."
