monthly figures from now cn will not
be significant. It is the general un
derstanding that mining companies
will restrict production until such time
when the prevailing surplus is almost
disposed of and domestic require
ments show indications of increasing.
It cannot be expected that exports will
run very large, as both England and
Prance are reported to have a large
surplus on hand, the former having in
excess of 60,0'i0,000 pounds, which is
more than sufficient for some time to
For the 191S year Inspiration pro
duced a total of 98,525,000 pounds.
The total for December was 5.026.91,
a. substantial advance over November
but not as much as for several months
of last spring and summer.
Liberty Loans '
Garden's figures for Liberty loan
subscriptions are not so complete as
hii stamp records, but they are accur
ate enough for all practical purposes.
In the first end second Liberty loan
campaigns the company made no ef
fort to induce its employes to sub
scribe. Many bought through the
banks but some asked the company
to handle their subscriptions, which
wr.s cheerfully done. Total subscrip
tions handled through the timekeep
ing ofi'ices in those first two cam
paigns were about $10,000.
When the third loan campaign came
along an aggressive campaign was
carried on to acquaint U. V. mine
employes with the merits of Uncle
Sam's securities as an investment. A
100 per cent record was made, every
single one of the 1.278 men on the
payroll subscribing to at least a $30
bond. The company made arrange
ments for subscribers to pay for their
bonds on exceptionally easy terms so
that no ore could possibly be pinched.
The total amount subscribed to this
loan was $S2.000.
Another 100 per cent record was
made in the fourth loan drive. There
were 13.o0 men on the payroll at that
time and they subscribed for $97,000
worth of bonds. In addition to this,
subscriptions were made by electri
cians and other workers through their
unions to the amount of more than
$5,000, bringing the fourth- loan total
to over $102,000.
At present practically all the fourth
loan subscriptions are paid. Many

vious year. This comparison, however,
is in no way a fair one as in the last
four months of 1917 Inspiration show
ed only 13.0o0.00O pounds, while the
first sjx months' output amounted to
77.000,000 pounds, the company not re
porting any production for July and
August. But for the labor shortage so
prevalent last year Inspiration would
have been able to make a much better
The recent declaration of the. reg
ular quarterly dividend of $2 per
share, a rather unexpected event in
view of the reduction of the Anacon
da dividend, is a strong proof that
directors see no reason yet why the
present rate cannot be maintained.
Whether this can be paid three
months hence depends largely on the
price and the domestic demand for
the red metal.

WORK OH 11 DRIFT TO m
GRODNO PROGRESSES RAPIDLY AND
FAVORABLE ORES ARE ENCOUNTERED
Ventilation Offers Serious and Expensive Problems aj Lower
Levels Are Driven; Employes of Calumet & Arizona Are
Returning Slowly to Their Former Positions With Com
pany; All Receive Redely Welcome to Mine Personnel
While the d'ifts which hive been underway for the last year Irom t'.i
Junction shaft to the Demi-Arizona line, have not yet reached the or lndi'-
opened by .h Uenn. the drift on t-'te 100 foot level is in v.-ry favcrabie look
ing ground. The Junction drkts are on the 1400 and 10HO leveN.
Driving toward the Denn, particularly on the lower ve, has b-ea both
teiiiom and comuv. The venti'.latlon problem has been a hard one t-j o-.t-cme
and has delayed operations somewhat.
However, with the rich ore body opened in the Denn from the 10'") foc.t
lev-l to tie 1600 as a goal, the C. A. doubtless will be well repaid for ti.e
time, effort and money expended.
Leads Toward Junction
The Denn ore body carrit-s directly into tlie Junction ground, according to
mining men. the one factor remaining to be determined being its extent.
This is t!ie largest piece of strictly development work in new territory
the ('. & A. pet pie are doing at present. No developments of particular in
terest in the mining operations were reported during the week.
Employe Return Slowly
The slowne-s of the return of former employes of the Calumet Ari
zona mining company from the army, navy or war work in which they hae
been engaged. U a matter of wonderment for the official of th company.
Altogether, the Calumet Arizona sent -447 men into the country's service
as shown by company records. Of this number less than twenty f:ve have re
turned here after being discharged. All of those who have returned have ben
put back, to work as soon as they applied.
Company Service Flag
The company service flag can show stars for its general mauasr, four
iren from the accounting department, six frcm the purchasing department,
two from the Essaying department, eight from the engineering department,
one watchman. IS from the mechanical department. 14 electricians four carpv n
te,rs. 17S from the Junction. 120 from the Briggs tr.J Hnalson. 1" from the
Cole ?nd 37 from the Oliver shaft.
As far as is known here, there have been no casualties araoig C. t A.
emnloyes, either in the army, navy or marine corps. The casualty !i hu
teen watched rather olcse'.y, but without. r.?.ult. so far as discovering tt't
names of c"n:panv employes in them was coneerr.ed.
Anxiouc for Return
Just when the C. - A. hord wiM begin c return In any number to re
sume, its positions is not known and nowhere in the nation is the sound
of feet o' Johnnie as he cr.nies maThirg home listened for with more anxiety.
Among the men are many old andvalued employes who will lie needed in the
new era of company development.
