building a foundation for the new

A Minneapolis company is figuring
on takintr over several mining claims
in the Gold Basin country with the
intention of putting in a cyanide
plant to handle the ores. In and
around the Cold Basin country there
are many mining claims showing
good values on the outcrop, but the
scarcity of water makes them hard to
handle. there is no doubt that
water can be obtained in the mines if
depth is had. but to take water into
the camp will tie an expensive under
taking. The Colorado river is only
about twenty miles away and there
are places on the river iu the canvons
that can be utilized to generate power
for all purposes, and at the same time
the ores can be trammed to the river
for reduction. Mohave Miner.
Tombstone, the historic mining
camp of Arizona, the place that 20
years ago excited the admiration of
the world, is to be rehabilitated. Al
ready the big four compartment shaft
has been sunk to water level, and the
most powerful pumps in the world
will soon be running a river of water
from the mines. Two 350 horse
power engines will furnish a portion
of the motive power. The camp is
rich in both gold aud silver as the ore
runs about two ounces in gold and a
heavy percentage of the white, metal.
The leads are heavy and clearly de
fined in fissure veius so the work be
ing done is not that which chases an
illusive phantom of hope. It is
purely a business proposition to again
put in operation twenty or thirty of
the best producing mines on the con
tinent. The year 1902 will see the
town of Tombstone regain its old
time prestige as a mineral producer.
News comes from Victoria, B. C, of
departure of the Blakeley. carrying a
party of treasure seekers, whose des
tination is the famed Cocos Island,
where they hope to unearth a fabu
lous amount of gold buried there iu
1821 by Capt. Pedro Bouita, anil to
which was added an immense amount
of valuables in 1888 by Capt. John
Keaton of the Boston liark Mary
Dier. As the story goes, Capt.
Keaton led a party to the islam! a
few years after burying the treasure,
and each member of his crew brought
enough gold home to make himself
wealthy for life, but left behind much
more. The Victoria expedition is
said to lie composed of prominent
people claiming to have accurate in
formation as to the exact spot where
rthe gold is buried, and they are de
termined to unearth it if possible.
A gentleman who has just returned
from Jerome reports that during the
past week over 200 men have beeu
discharged from the employ of the
United Verde mines and no one
knows how manv more will be. This
j is in accordance with the recent order
to reduce the output of copper.
While the mine will be worked with a
reduced force it should not be taken
as an indication that Senator Clark
has under contemplation the closing
down permanently and abandonment
of the property by any means.
Through the present fog of low
price for copper caused by a battle
between certain copper giants. Sen
ator Clark apparently can see "lighter
days" for the future of the metal.
While he is restricting his copper
output for the present, he is adding
another big furnace to those already
in and is preparing when the time
comes to materially add to the former
product. He is also engaged in
sinking a new shaft and making other
improvements which go to show that
he has not lost any of his faith in
copper. Not only are the above im
provements going on at the richest
copper mine in the world, but active
work is iu progress at the Iron King
mine, a neighboring mine owned by
Senator Clark, putting in a big
smelter, which he expects to have in
operation by the first of May.
A meeting of the directors of the
Baumanu Copper company was held
last evening at which officers for the
ensuing year were elected. The old
officers were all re-elected as follows
president, H. P. Auewalt;vice presi
dent, R. E. Morrison; secretary and
general manager, Jules Bauniann;
treasurer, W. S. Qoldsworthy. The
affairs of the company are in good
condition, the annual assessment on
the claims being about completed.
In doing this work good lxxlies of ore
were encountered on several of the
claims, and the showing has been
such that the directors felt justified
in advancing the price to thirty five
! cents per share. Several of the di
rectors favored advancing the price
at once, but owing to the fact that
negotiations are pending for the sale
of several large blocks of
date for the advance was set for Feb
ruary 1, in order to give an opportn
nity for the completion of these ne
gotiations. The work of systematic
development of the projierties will
commence just as soon as the present
work iu hand is completed. There is
a large amount of ore already on the
dumps which will lie marketed at the
Val Verde smelter, which is only two
miles from the property, and the ore
is of such a quality that the cost of
freight and treatment there would be
but little more than it would cost to
work on the ground. This is to the
greatest advantage to the company as
it is expected to enable it to pay divi-
e sttwk issued during the
present vear. there are now alnmt
' 2,000 feet of development Work done
on the property and the capitalization
of the company is very low. being for

vestors a fine opjiort unity of realizing
a handsome profit on their investment.
The proceeds of the sale of the treas
ury stock will be applied to the de-
velopment and. equipment of the
mines strictly, and in the payment of
incidental expenses connected with
the operation of the company, 'i'he
lllines cau be ojieratetl verv cheaply
and as the ore carries pnod values in

It is rumored that the United
Verde mine is reduceing the output
of its mines, and the maximum thai
will hereafter lie produced it is stated
will be forty tons per day.
The whim for the Copper Basin
Gold and Copper Mining companv
has arrived and has been sent out to
the property and will be placed in po
sition tomorrow ready to start upon
Thursday morning. The shaft is
down now to a depth of seventy feet,
and the ore continues good and in
fact improves with depth. Progress
will be more rapid hereafter, as they
expect to be able to make from twelve
to twenty feet per weak with the use
of the whim. The company is in
creasing its force iust as rapidly as
places can be made for them to work
to advantage, three more men being
sent out today.
T. L. Ayres visited the C. O. D.
mine this week and reports its it to
contain one of the largest bodies of
ore iu the county. Mr. Ayres is not a
mining enthusiast and what he does
not know about mining is not worth
knowing, and when he states that the
C. O. D. is one of the big things of
the Pacific coast, you can bank on it
that it is just what he says. The
mine is truly a wonderful property
and the company made no mistake
when they took it oyer from the old
owners. The mill recently erected
on the property is doing good work
and a world of ore to work on. Mr.
Ayres says that there is enough mill
ing ore of good grade to keep the big
plant pounding away for more than a
year without touching the reserves of
high grade ores, of which there im
mense bodies in sight. On the 800
level the old works were within two
feet of one of the finest ore bodies
the mine had ever yielded up.
MORE COPPER TALK.
The Battle of the Coppar Giants Dis

A recent issue of the Mining Review
contains the following concerning the
If. as we are told, misery loves
company, the Amalgamated people
must be getting lots of consolation
and comfort out of the misery they
are causing the other fellows, more
particularly the Calumet & Hecla
crowd. The cut in price of copper
made by the United Metal Selling
company is having a very calamitous
effect on Calumet and it will not be
long before the latter will be making
more noise than three pigs under a
gate. It is not so very long ago that
Oalnmel It Hecla stock was worth
$850 n share. About six weeks ago it
began to drop and it has continued
the weeping-willow act ever since.
On December U it got down to $620,
three days later It was selling for 1
$590 and on Decemlier 28 the highest I
price bid for it was $575. How much
lower it may go depends upon the :
Calumet & Hecla directors. 1
The news of a meeting in New
101k of representatives of the big
produciug-copper companies has
leaked out. The Amalgamated Co.
was uot represented, the meeting be
ing confined to representatives from
the "independent" companies. Among
those at the meeting were representa
tives from the Calumet & Hecla, the
Copper Queen ( Phelps, Dodge & Co.)
the United Verde and Mr. John
Stantou. The object of the meeting
was to consider future action in the
event of a further cut in the price of
copper. It is stated that the con
census of opinion was that if the war
is to be fought each concern will have
to look after its customers as best it
Mr. John Stantou is quoted as say

The visible supply iu Europe is 10,

Phelps. Dodge St Co. are quoted as
saying: "We have not heard of the
new prices quoted bv the United
Metals Selling Co., but we will meet
any reduction that the United Metals

The latest is that the big independ
ent producers are not smiling over
the prospect of a war over prices, and
the good Lord knows they have no
reason to. A war over prices would
be ruinous to their profit, while it
would not work any hardship on
prospect stocks. It is little wonder
therefore that Calumet & Hecla

The report from New York about
the United Verde Co. having reduced
its monthly dividend from $1.50 a
share to seventy-five cents a share is
erroneous. The United Verde has
not been paying $1.50 a share since
June of last year, so that it is incor
rect to say that it has made any re
duction. Since June, 1900, it has
paid seventy-five cents a share, and
that is what it is paying now.

Carty, a famous hunter and scientist,
went with a party of friends for a
long hunt in Mogollon mountains. A
few weeks later he left camp to hunt
alone, and never returned.
On August 19 searchers found a
body supposed to lie McCarty 's in
Miller's canyon, south of Flagstaff.
The body had been horribly mutilat
ed, presumably by a liear; both legs
were broken, the hips dislocated and
the head almost severed from the
body. The ' remains wen taken o

Before leaving Pheuix McCarty
had taken out a $10,000 life policy in
the Manhattan company of New

fort company of Germany, $2,000 in
the Woodmen, $5,000 in the Foresters
and various amounts in the Fraternal
Brotherhood of Los Angeles, Wood
men and similar organizations. After
a long investigation payment was re
fused on all policies and as a conse
quence a suit has beeu begun on the
part of the widow.
Under writers at Pheuix who in
sured McCarty declare that an at
tempt has been made to victimize the
insurance companies, and even assert
that the body found, which was sup
posed to lie McCarty's was one of
two stolen from a Phenix graveyard
about the time McCarty's party left.
McCarty was territorial game and

An Evening of Mirth.
"Too Rich to Marry" at the opera
house last night produced more gen-
uine enjoyment totln-minute as giveuj
expression to by uproarious laughter
than the production of any play pro
duced there for a long time. From
the time the curtain raised in the
first act to the time it dropped at the
close of the play it was one continu
ous round of applause and laughter,
except the brief spell between acts.
Even this waiting time, which as a
rule is so prolonged as to become
wearisome, was cut short, and the
audience had barely time-to compose
itself from the eruption of laughter in
one act until the curtain was up aud
new provocation for merriment was
provided iu another act. Some funny
plays are without a plot, consisting
of simply funny situations aud say
ings, but "Too Rich to Marry has a
plot coupled with its ridiculous situa
tions. As Jonathan Bradbury, the
Dunkard, awav from home and "out
for a time," Ed. Redmond was the
principal provoker of all the fun. al
though as "Sambo, a colored gent of
many accomplishments," Arthur
Smith did his full share iu keeping
the audience awake with hands press
ed to iheir sides to prevent their
splitting with laughter. While a
wide discrepancy lietween the
plot as published in the advertise
ments of the company, and as pro
duced on the stage, was very marked,
th'i improvement in the play over
the plot as advertised was equally
marked and appreciated by the audi
ence. The company throughout is a
good one, as there was not a single
member who did uot perform the
part assigneil to him, with credit and
satisfaction. The couixiny was greet
ed with a good audience and it was
as appreciative as it was large.

A RANCHER MURDERED.
His Dead Body Found in his Cabin
Near White Plcacho, on Sunday
When Beu Swinninger made a
Sunday morning call on his neighbor
George Bryan, near White Picaoho
yesterday, a ghastly sight met his
view. Lying near his cabin sur
rounded by a pool of blood, was the
body of George Bryan, cold in death.
A bullet hole, made by a pistol or
rifle told of the manner of his death,
while a double barrel led shot gun
which he clutched in his hand indi
cated that he was shot down while in
the act of attempting to defend him
self either from some enemy or from
No particulars have beeu received
of the crime, the above being convey
ed in a brief telegram received at the
sheriff's office. Immediately upon
its receipt Under Sheriff Johns and
Deputy Lon Young boarded a freight
train and left for the seene of the
crime. After their arrival there they
wired to Deputy District Attorney
Sam Pattee to go down and he left on
the evening train.
The scene of the killing was iu Ya
vapai county about fourteen miles
north east of Morristown where Geo.
Bryan who is engaged in the stock
business, has lived in a lonely cabin
for the past twelve years.
Deceased was about eighty years
old and was an uncle of Mrs. Cha
Akers, her father Creede Bryan
being a brother of the dead man.
Two other brothers are said to be
residents of the territory.
Conners Charged With Murder.
Wm. Connors was brought up from
Morristown this morning and lodged
in jail charged with the murder of
Geo. Bryan, on Saturday night last.
His preliminary examination was held
at Morristown, and the testimony in
troduced was of such a nature as to
induce the committing magistrate to
order him held without bail to appear
before the grand jury. Connors is a
hard working miner, and when sober
is a peaceable and industrious man
but when drinking is inclined to be
quarrelsome and dangerous. He was
mixod up some time since in a shoot
ing scrape at Morristown in which he
had a narrow escape from being killed
and later had a quarrel in Prescott
which resulted in his being sent to
the hospital for some time. The offi
cers state that the evidence intro
duced at the preliminary examina
tion was very damaging against him.
A friend of Connors told the Journal
Miner reporter today that he had
seen Connors on Saturday morning:
that he had been drinking and this
friend advised him to discard the
firearms he had on him at the time.

ANOTHER PNEUMONIA VICTIM.
The Death of Herb. W. Pentland, Oc
curs at an Early Hour This Morn
ing, After a Brief Illness.
Sadness again pervades the com
munity, while overshadowing grief
and sorrow prevails in one home, oc
casioned by the death this morning
of Herb. W. Pentland. A week ago,
and even less than that, he was in the
hey day of youth, with hopes and
ambitions all centered in the future.
Today his body lies an "inanimate
object, clad in its death robes ready
for the tomb."
He had been suffering for two or
three weeks with a cold which he
seemed unable to break, and on Fri
day afternoon symptoms of pneumo
nia made their appearance, and he
took to his bed and was attended by
two physicians who did everything
that medical skill could suggest. It
was realized from the first that his
condition was serious as the disease
hatl fastened itself with a firm grasp
upon his system. His condition re
mained about the same until yester
day afternoon when a slight change
for the better seemed to take place.
It proved only ephemeral, however, as
towards night his symptoms grew
worse and continued until death oc
curred as stated at the above hour.
H. W. Pentland came to Prescott
several years ago, with his parents,
when but a mere boy and grew to
manhood here and was universally
esteemed and respected bv all who
knew him. He entered the drug
store of W. W. Ross and learned the
business with him, remaining in his
employ until the latter sold out and
then continued with his successor,
Harry Brisley. A short time since
he resigned his position there to enter
the employ of Fen S. Hildreth, with
whom he remained until his death.
He has aerved the city as its treas- -urer
for several terms, holding the
position of city treasurer at the time
of his death. He was an enthusiastic
member of the Benevolent and Pro
tective Order of Elks and exemplified
the teachings and principles of charity
of the order, in his daily life.
The blow is a specially severe one
upon his family, following so closely
the death of his brother wnich occur
red through a railroad accident the
latter part of August. His sister who
has been attending the normal school
at Los Angeles, and brother in Mex
ico have been notified by telegraph of
his death, and the funeral will not
take place until after their arrival.
Mrs. Gage's Death.
A telegram was received last even
ing announcing that Mrs. E. B. Gage,
whose serious illness was announced
in these columns yesterday had died
in San Francisco at 8:30 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. The news of her
illness was a great surprise to her
manv friends here and the announce
ment of her death following so closely
: was a great shock to them.
.Mrs. Uage has been a resident ot
the territory, with her husband, ""tor
about twenty years, having resided at
Tombstone, Tucson and Prescott, and
as a consequence was one of the best
known woman in Arizona. She was
possessed of a sunny and cheerful
disposition, hence popular with all
who knew her. Without the cares of
a family of children and possessed of
ample means, she devoted much of
her time to charity and to the work of
administering to the happiness and
comfort of others. While she left
Prescott about two months ago with
the intention of residing elsewhere
and ner departure was aeepiy de
plored, her friends found comfort in
the thought that she would pay oc
casional visits to the place where she
had so long resided, little thinking
that the summons from the active
scenes of life would so soon be issued.
A good woman has been called to her
