WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER WEDNESDAY, MAECH 30, 1910.
(IE DAISY STR K
(From Saturday's Daily)
Remarkable conditions are still
prevailing at the Little Daisy mine,
at Jerome, and the big strike of last
week continues in development going
on from the crosscut on the SOO foot
level, with the immense ore body
not as yet explored. Twenty-two
feet of a solid ore body had been
penetrated up to Thursday night,
and according to a statement yes
terday of General Manager Fisher, it
is problematical when the exact ore
zone will be determined.
He states that the timbering of
the ground was effected a few days
ago, when development was resumed
and thirteen feet ' was accomplished
in the last work. The character or
the ore for that distance is the red
oxide and the carrying of native cop
per was identical to that which was
cut into when the big discovery was
mentioned a few days ago.
The copper glance body was pass
ed over in the new work, and it is
the belief from what is seen on the
floor of the crosscut that the sul
phides are coming in. The crosscut
will be continued until the walls
are reached and the determinations
made of the extent of the ore

Counsel For Cabinet Ob

Denies His Syndicate
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, D. C, March 25."
When the Ballinger-Pinchot inquiry
was resumed today, Brandeis, coun
sel for Glivas, sprung a surprise in
calling for Secretary Ballinger to
take .the stand. He admitted he
wanted to conduct a general exam
ination. Counsel for the cabinet official ob
jected. Attorney Brandeis replied he sup
posed Ballinger all along had been
willing to take the stand at any time
he was wanted.
Several committee members
thought Ballinger ought to be given
an opportunity to make a statement
in his own way before being sub
jected to cross-examination. Final
decision was deferred.
Stephen Birch, managing director
of the Guggenheim-Morgan syndicate
of Alaska, was on the stand all
day. He stoutly denied his syn
dicate practically controlled Alaska.
Birch said his syndicate had al
ready invested $15,000,000 in Alaska,
and planned to invest more. As to
the Cunningham claims, Birch pro
duced an option showing that the
claimants had given his syndicate a
relinquishment in 1907.
He declared the option was ac
cepted but that the claimants had
never lived up to it.
Brandeis sought to show that the
syndicate, "with great wealth and
power in this country," had brought
pressure to bear during the last
two years to have the Cunningham
Birch declared he knew of no .such
efforts being made.
