President Head Submits
Report to Company.
Satisfactory Progress Made and
Some Pleasant Surprises For
Month of June.
The rejiort of President A. J.
Head, of the Corona Consolidated
Gold and Copper eompauv which is
printed below will batoai with inter
est toy every stockholder of the com
jiany as well as by every one interest
ed in the progress of the mining in

Office of Corona Consolidated Gold
and Copper Co., Prescott, Ariz., July
To the Board of Directors, gentle
Work for the mouth of June has
progressed very favorably and without
interruption on the properties of the
Corona Consolidated Gold and Cop
per company. All assessemut work
for the year 1903 was finished up in
good shape. Considerable work was
done in the way of putting roads in
first class condition, and many little
improvements were added in the way
of camp conveniences, etc.. a stone
brick cellar for groceries and supplies
was erected near the boarding house,
and besides a large amount of work
. was accomplished in the Coroua tun
nel. We purchased a new ore car and
also put down about 500 feet of new
Trails, adding very much to the con
venience of handling ores and waste.
Our main work and efforts have been
concentrated on driving the Coroua
tunnel and notwithstaning we haj
some very hard rock to go through. I
feel that we have made satisfactorv
headway. We have had some pleasant Charles T. Goddard, who is in
surprises iu the way of finding ore charge of the Goddard Mining corn
much earlier than was expected. Last pany's properties, located within two

tauce of 170 feet, we found a vein of been done. The croppings show a
ore which did not crop on the sur- ledge, by actual measurement eighty
face and which appears to be an off seven feet in width. Mr. Goddard de-
shoot from the big ore body. When
we ran into this ore body, it had the
appearance of being a large ore de
posit, as it came iu at an angle, and
the entire lace of the ttiuuel was in
ore for a distance of more than four
feet. After cult ing through the ledge,
this vein was found to lie thirty
iuches wide, aud is of very rich oxide
ruuning 12 er cent copper, and $9.00
in gold, from samples taken across
the tuuuel for a distance of about six
feet. Some pieces of this ore are most
beautiful and show a liberal amount
of Tree gold, a few pieces beiug liter
ally sprinkled with the yellow metal.
An. it her ore vein about ten inches
thick was also cut. Both of these
veins show conclusively that they lead
to the main ore deposit and as dem
onstrated by our shafts ana the mam
moth open cut above. The body of
ore uncovered by our six foot cut con
tinues to enlist the wi uder and admi
ration of all who vic.v it, anJ every
one who has inspected the work aud
the plans we are following, heartily
concur in the belief that we will tap
the mammoth ore shoot with the Co
roua tunnel at a depth of 030 feet,
when he have" gotten under the ajiex
of the mountain. According to sur
face measurements, we would reach
our big ledge ou straight tuuuel with
in 2i' feet more, or a cross cut withiu
about 10 feet. We have been so anx
ious to tap the big ore body at its
widest point, that he have concluded
to postpone making any cross cuts at
this time, and push the tunnel for
ward as vigurcusly as possible until
we have leached the main ledge, then
cross cut. upraise, aud drift. If indi
cations, which have beeu well pros
jiected, do not badly miscarry, we
have an ore .-hoot here between 1400
and tSQO liet iu length, ana there is
every reason to suppose that its pres
ent width from four to six feet will
greatly Lam ase with depth, as the
five lave and well defined veins, as
explored ou the surface aud lying
withiu a radius of 2K feet, unques
tionably make into the one immense
ore deposit. A number of the direct
ors ami stockholders, as well as other
visitor.-, have bt-eu ou the property
during the past mouth, aud all ex
press themselves as greatly pleased
aud deeply interested iu the pro-rty
aud the result of development work
now beiug pushed. I am pleased to
reHrt liberal siihscriptous to our
stock, aud local parties are making
voluntary purchase, which liest illus
trates the faith they have iu the ulti
mate outcome for their investment.
Many inquiries are already lieiug
made from outside investors, aud as
practically no advertising has as yet I
leeu done, and nothiug in the way of I
literature gotteu out. with the excep
tion o"t a small udder, we can reason
ably expect by a little advertising ju
diciously placed, to sell all the stock
we may le ire to place within a short
time. I advise holding the present
selling priee of stock at 2" cents for a
short time yet, and Iielieve that it is
better to maintain a price in keeping
with the deserts of actual showing
rather than adopting liet it ions values.
When our tunnel has reached the
main ore body, and is found to be,
as we now believe il will, our stock
w ill easily be worth 5u cents per share,
aud will undoubtedly command that
price, if not letter. I have thought
beet not to try to handle any of our
ore during the hot season, but stack
it on the dumps and wait until Sep
tember or October, w hen by shipping
to the !ii -Iters and by making tests
on our m kjrabariag mills, we can dem
onstrate what we will require for its
future handling. 1 grow more thor
oughly couviuced, as work progresses,
that we p se.-- a most excellent and
exceptional property and believe that
the ultimate outcome will prove very
profitable to all stockholders.
A. J. Head, President.
At Park, City, Utah, it is stated
that a movement has lieeu started to
form a co-oiierative minium comjiauy,
the stockholders and operators all be
ing miners and ineiuliers of the West
ern Federation of Miners. A company
already organized and known as the
Aristocrat Mining Co., has offered a
large block of stock for sale to the
members of the union, offering as a
premium 20,000 shares after 50,000
shares have beeu subset ibed. Should
the union accept the proposition they
would have a majority of the stock
and consequently control the mine.
This is somewhat of an innovation
wun laoor unions, as in this case
they would become operators as well
as workmen. It will afford them a
good opportunity of showing how
financiering a miue and practical
mining should be done. If the prop
osition of the Aristocrat Mining Co.
is accepted, the career of the company
under the new management would be
watched with interest. Mining and
D. C. Monroe visited the Monroe
Consolidated property on Lynx creek
yesterday.' Twenty eight men are at
present employed in the mine. He
says that the skip has been attached
to the new hoist and they have done
away with the buckets formerly used
iu hoisting and can uow hoist a ton
from the bottom of the shaft. The
shaft will ie completed down to the
fifth Ivel by the middle of the pres
ent month. He says that the proper! y
is looking perfectly satisfactory and
all appearances indicate the making
of a good big mine.
Work ou the Iron King smelter near
Jerome will be pushed to completion
as rapidly as possible, and the smelter
put in commission. This smelter, in
connection with the miue, will give
employment to between 200 and 250
cided to prospect the surface croppings
with the view of selecting a location
for sinking a shaft on it. He took
samples for a distatice of sixty feet
across the ledge from the outcroppiugs
taking iu all about 100 pounds. These
samples be mixed and quartered, re
ducing them to an ordinary sized
sample for the assayer, but doing his
work very carefully, so as to get as
nearly as possible a fair sample of the
croppings for that distance. He sent
the samples by express to Prescott and
received the returns this morning
showing a total value in gold, silver
and copper of $18.20 per ton, the ore r
showing a value of 5.8 per cent iu
copper. As stated he was completely
surprised at these values, being so
much greater than he had anticipated.
He has the machinery all ordered to
put up ou the mine aud will com
mence sinking a shaft ou this mine

loo warm to uuiu lo advantage any
sooner. He has been sinking a shaft

shows up remarkably rich ore, so rich
in fact that be does not care to stte
its value, as he says he would be ac
cused of exaggerating it. At a depth
of ten feet the ore body was two aud
a half feet wide and at thirty feet it
has widened out to five feet. Mr.
Goddard is working a torce of five
men at preseut but as soon as cooler
weather sets iu he vill largely in

G. W. French, who is doing some
work ou the Monitor group of mines,
just south east of Prescott, had some

President Kd Block, ol the Mer- I

ed from a visit to the pro'rty an. I is
delighted with the way things are I
looking at the mine. Four cars of ore !
have been shipped to Val Verde thi
week and these shipments are goiiiL'
out every week. There are three shifts
of miners at work underground and
the, working shaft is being put down
as fast as it is possible to do the
work, the shaft now lieing down

if possible the extent of the very rich
ore vein which was drilled through
at the 25i foot level. Work is al-o
being done in one of the drifts of the

out every day. Work has just been
commenced on a new buildiug which

effected by the labor troubles and has
gone right along without a moment's

one of the solid, dividend paying
miues-ef this section. Mr. Block also
reports work progressing nicely on
the Old Mesa Gold Company's tunnel,
the tunnel now beiug in 240 feet and
going right ahead. Two blind ledges
have been encountered by the work
men so far in the tunnel. One of
these is about 12 inches wide and the
other about 18 inches. The ore taken
from them will pan free gold. At
present, all energies are being conceu-
trated to strike the old well known
ledge which crops out on top of the
mountain aud which had produced
such rich ore, aud the new ledges will
not be prospected at present.

STEEL CARS COMING IN VOGUE
Wootlen railway cars will soon be a
tht.ng of memory only.as they are des
tined shortly to be transplanted by
steel cars both for freight and pas-
seuger traffic. In a recent issue of
Popular Mechanics the advantage.- of
steel cars over wooden ones are point
ed out as follow
"Passengers will U more secure 111
tlw r of el. for, s has hei
! proven with the steel freight trains,
it is almost impossibt to demolish
them. In wrecks where the trains
were composed of both steel and
j wooden cars the latter have been torn
j to spliuters, while the metal cars re
mained uninjured. A given weight of
steel will carry much more than the
same weight of wooden car, hence the
lighter weight necesasry to carry a
given load makes the steel car much
more economical. Other advantages
are: Reduced number of cars re
quired, reduced frictiou and atmos
pheric resistance; reduced empty car
movement: reduced switching service;
length: reduced pay -
ment for car mileage and cost of in
spection : reduced number of parts:
longer life: no insurance: greater sal
vage, increase in traffic, capacity of
sidings, terminals, aud. in fact, the
entire road: decrease in cost of repairs
from an average between 35 and 940
per annum for wooden cars to au aver
age, established bv complete records,
of $10 to 15."
The same paper contains an illus
tration showing the effects of a head
end collision on the Uuion Pacific.
One of the colliding trains consisted
of a number of steel freight cars and
several wooden oues. The latter, which
were at the rear of the train, were
Passenger cars that will not tele
scope in a collision, nor br&k up into
kindling wood, nor take fire, nor
otherwise seriously endanger pas

, these conditions, it cannot come into
general use any too soon.
