MINES AND MINING.
A Prominent Gold Producing
Property in Galena
The Ideal Company and Their
Gladatone Claim. Pronounced
by Disinterested Miners as a
Harvelous Piece of Ground
Development Work is Rapidly
and Practically Being Pushed.
An Enterprise of a flerited
Character, and Operated on an
Energetic Scale by a Limited
Number of Stockholders,
Attending the operations now in
progress so systematically and prac
tically by the Ideal Mining company
near McCabe, but very little of late
has been heard for some reason or
other. Notwithstanding that the
company is what may be termed a
close one, in so far as its corporate
life goes and its interests figure in
mines and mining, the fact is never
theless that in its manner and meth
ods it is what its name would imply.
In addition to this personal feature of
its make up. it has a mine and by
this the assertion can be broadened
out to say that in development to
date and in the size and value of the
fissure of the Gladstone claim at the
bottom of their working shaft, the
making of one of the best gold mines
in the southwest is unquestionably
ahead of tne company. Previous to
the sale of the Gladstone to the Ideal
people last October, but little work
had been done. Since that date,
however, the mine has been regen
erated, and today it is the scene of
not only earnest and careful opera
tion, but likewise it is said to be a
steady and profitable producer. In
less than four months a double com
partment shaft has been sunk to a
depth of 270 feet and in addition to
this nearly 700 feet of levels have
been run. Thirty miners are on the
pay roll. From the surface to the
deepest workings a magnificent body
of ore running from five feet to eight
feet wide has been cut, giving the
property a regard in gold mining
such as few if any others anywhere
can claim. The ore of the Gladstone
is a sulphide, carrying a small per
centage in copper. Its lead lays be
tween walls of a schist like formation,
and from the surface to the bottom it
has been regular and steady in its
geological character. The second
class oie is piled up at the dump on
the mine, the tixst class bauigshipped
to Silver City for reduction. In
equipment the company is favored
with first class and adequate machin
ery for the purpose of development at
the preseut. a steam hoist, an electric
lighting plant, assay office, electric
drills, blacksmith shop and other ap
pliances being on the ground. The
many buildings on the property at
tests to the stability of the enter
prise, in other words, they are so sub
stantially and commodiously con
structed as to create the belief that
they are there to stay. Another fea
ture of this company's methods in
mining is noticeable in the durability
of the material used in the shaft,
Oregon pine ten bv twelve inches be
ing the size of the timbers through
out. Another striking illustration of
the property's merit which is favora
bly considered by the miner is the
healthy size of the ore dump and the
values it contains. Men versed in
mining, from the practical to the
scientiyc side of the calling, who have
closely followed and studied the de
velopment of this mine have nothing
but a favorable word to say of it. In
addition to lx-lieving that the Glad
stone is to rank foremost as a gold
producer, the belief is of more or less
substantial consideration when it is
on a fissure that can be easily follow
ed for miles up ami through Galena
ulch. and for this reason more than
other is the development of this
particular claim to greater depth
watched with a great deal of interest.
The property is under the superin
tendeucy of Col. D. X. Hood, an
agreeable young gentleman, a grad
uate of Columbia aud professionally
a mineralogist. With C. W. French,
a stockholder, they are the only rep
resentatives of the company on the
Looking Better Every Day.
So says Jules Baumann, general
manager of the Baumann Copper Co.
of the prospect, having just returned
from his periodical visit to the exten
sive propel ty of that corporation. He
is most enthusiastic over the result of
present operations at several of the
claims, where assessment work for
the year 1901 has just been com
pleted. In a letter to the editor of
tli is paper Mr. Baumann expresses
: himself as follows:
"Our property is looking better
! every day. While engaged last sum
' mer in rebuilding monuments over
the entire Baumann group of twenty
j five claims. I discovered a new lode
directly on the adjoining side line be
tween the Red Cross and the Loretta,
the two north end claims of the great
Swiss Girl lode system. They are
located on the west slope of Loretta
peak, which, with its twin brother, El
i Capitan, two miles further southward
: and directly back of the Val Verde
1 smelter, holds silent watch over the
' peaceful valley of the Agua Fria. I
; prospected this new vein several hun
' dred feet, and wherever I dug into it,
: found good copper ore. I now have a
j shaft sunk thereon about twenty feet
! deep, and find a well-defined ledge
! of highly mineralized quartz, fully
; five feet wide, containing some very
high grade eoppec aud gold ore, simi
! lar in BOMS) ranee to that of the ad
joining Laura mine, from which I
i had shipped considerable ore in re
1 cent years. The new discovery, how
; ever, is not the LsHBH vein, for that
can le traced on the surface 300 feet
j furthei up the mountain.
"Although I have always held a
high opinion of this pint ion of our
1 ground, I am more convinced thau
ever of the existence henof large aud
rich ore bodies, at no very great
' depth either. The north end of the
Laura and Manzanita, together with
! the Lon-tla and Red Cmss claims,
contain a veritable network of tnin
1 eralized quart, veins east of thlfiwis
Ivirl mother l"u, nil m n lively look-
ing porphyry country rock, traversed
diagonally by dykes of trachyte and
and diorite. The veins are large and
well defined, and have apparently the
same dip as the mother lode, to the
east or into the mountain, at about 25
degrees from the vertical) On the
summit ef Loret'.a peak and again on
the main ridge running southward,
the porphyry formation ends in gran
ite, ana the contact is marked by
strong iron croppings. Several of the
veins can be traced southward for
over a mile, ending in either the main
Swiss Girl lode or else in the moun
tain of iron porphyry quartz on the
Iron Mask and Iron Cliff claims, but
nowhere do they ahow so much nor so
rich copper ore as within the four
claims mentioned to the north.
Work is progressing satisfactorily
on the two main shafts intended to be
sunk to a depth of 500 feet, namely
on the Laura and the Swiss Girl
claims, and I am in hopes to be able
to chronicle some very good news for
our stock holders within a few weeks
time. Let our friends know that
they will find accommodations at
Camp Baumann at all times and I
will be pleased to show them our
property, to satisfy them of the ulti
mate great value of the Baumann
Copper company's mines."
Mineral Wealth of Arizona.
The outside world is coming to un
derstand the immense resources of
Arizona mining men and mining cap
ital are turning very generally to
ward this territory. The output of
its mines are increasing rapidly. The
development of new mines is fa r in
excess today of any time in the his
tory of mining in Arizona. The gen
eral outlook was never half so good
as today. In every naming district of
any reputation, rich mineral is being
developed inmost hopeful quantities.
One of the most encouraging signs
is the fact that local capital in every
section of the territory is investing in
mining development, and is becom
ing owners of some of the most prom
ising mines of that mineral region.
But in these days of mining prosper
ity, investors guard against the wild
cat schemes of Eastern adventures,
who foist worthless mining stocks on
the Eastern markets at the expense
of the good name of Arizona's legiti
mate mines and mining men.
The seal of condemnation must be
placed on every stock-jobbing scheme
known to be without merit, Tor such
are a great injury to meritorious min
ing interests. Tucson tstar.
Russian Mining Law.
The mining law in force in the
Russian empire has as its funda
mental principle the tenet that min
eral wealth s movable property aud
bears no relation to the estate on
which it is found. The right of the
operator to hold the ground ceases
when he shall nave exhausted the
mineral resources therein contained.
In other words, the tenure is practi
cally perpetual lease from the gov
ernment that is, absolute title guar
anteed so long as the small annual
i taxes are paid. IT be provision that
the tenure is good until the mineral is
exhausted is explained by the fact
that until recently almost all the
gold mining of Russia and Siberia
was placer mining and that when the
gravel had once been worked over it
was intended that the operator shonld
not stand in the way ol further de
velopment. Reports from the Bonanza gold
mine, in the Casa Grande district
are very flattering. Some very
rich free gold was taken out this
week. This property is owned by
John C. Loss and others, who in
tend to sink the present shaft to a
depth of 500 feet. Arizona Blade.
President Con O'Keefe of the So
nora Milling & Mining Co., accompa
nied by Mrs. O'Keefe and the child
ren, have gone to the Tubutama
mines on the Mtar river. Dan Shea
of Jerome, a brother of Mrs. O'Keefe,
who is a heavy stockholder, was a
member of the party. President
O'Keefe will make his headquarters
at the mines during the erection of
the big smelter, which will be blown
in on Washington's birthday. Tuc
Lately we have received literature
describing a drill that is to make min
ing easy, so easy that a person can
take hold of a crank and by turning
slowly, strike five hundred pound
blows at a very rapid rate. Such
statements for the machine should be
looked upon with suspicion, to ex
press it mildly. And we would ad
vise miners to put to a practical test
the drill before investing a penny. It
is certain that the power to strike a
five hundred pound blow must come
from the machine, and it is no less
true that the machine can give noth
ing that it does not receive from the
operator. If it did, it would oyerturn
some of the best established pnnci
pies of phylosophy. uch
blows could onlv come from a man at
the expense of distance and this is
precluded by the statement that the
machine is turned slowly. This
hand operated drill may be of advan
tage in directing the blow but that
it is anything more is out of the
There are occasions when a cluli a
large club heavily loaded is the best
means of driving common sense into
the heads of investors in mining
properties, observes the Lead and
Zinc News. It is a good method and
usually productive of results. Some
very excellent mining propositions
have been turned into complete fail
ures by the investors themselves de
ciding to send a "favored son" or
some broken down business man out
to manage a mining venture. Such
decisions have, in isolated cases,
proved reasonably successful. But
there is not a mining camp west of
the Mississippi river which cannot
point to more instances of this char-
acter in which the investors have lost
the greater portion of all their invest- i
ments. Mining, when conducted with
the same business caution that the
average commercial venture requires, j
is equally safe and more profitable.
No business man would think of turn- i
ing over the management ot his at-
fairs to a green man, and yet many of
those same business men, ordinarily
levelheaded, will consent to turn a I panied as far as Ash Fork by Secre Raible will be one of the most popu

The new copper discovery, made
by M. R. Chamberlin, of Willow
Springs, on the high mesa, south
of Black mountain and twenty
eight miles southeast of Florence, is
urrasual in extent. The deposit
covers a surface area of 3000 by
5400 feet.' It carries copper, gold
and silver, the copper running from
five to forty-live per cent. We shall
have more details of the discovery
later. Arizona Blade.
The report of the director of the
mint, Washington. D. C, of the
gold and silver production in the
U. S. during the year 1901 shows
that Arizona, according to the pub
lished figures stands sixth in the
list of gold producers and sixth,
also, in the list of silver producers.
The director's figures for Arizona
are: Gold, $4,198,500; silver, 2,-
905,500 ounces. Colorado leads in
both gold and silver, then, among
gold producers come California,
$15,730,700; Alaska, $6,904,400;
South Dakota, $6,601 ,SO0; Mon
tana, $5,023,300; then Arizona.
The others are below the four mil
lion mark. In silver production
they come in the following order:
Colorado, 20,S.'53.:'33 ounces; Mon
tana, 14,500,000; Utah, $10,250,-
000; Idaho, 4.000.000; Nevada, 4,
000,000; Arizona. 2.995.500. The
others are below the two million
Captain L. I). Phillips, agent of
Douglass, Lacey & Co. of New
York, i? at the Ford hotel. He is
on his regular bi-weekly visit to
Phoenix, as he has been going from
his headquarters in Prescott to the
new smelter at the Santa Rita prop
erties twice a month for some time.
Captain Phillips is one of Arizona's
best mentis, for being a mining man
of great experience, he has been in
strumental in interesting large
capital in the territory, and in the
right way. Douglass, Iacey & Co.,
whom he represents, have in the
last two years demonstrated their
faith in several big mining proper
ties by investing their money., And
they ai-tTifM--nrrtpW buying mines,
but are developing them and put
ting up reduction works as rapidly
as justified. The new concentrat
ing plant at Val Verde on the Agua
Fria nd the new smelter in the
Santa Ritas, now almost ready to
blow in, are two big monuments to
their enterprise in this direction.

A CALL TO ACTION.
Chairman Zock of tho Statohood Fi
nance Committee Makes
The following letter has been re
ceived by J. C. Martin, a member
of the statehood finance cemmittee
from this county, urging immed
iate action on the part of all
citizens of Arizona who desire the
blessing of statehood. Much has
already been said on this impor
tant subject, but the time has
come when good sensible action is
the only thing that will be of any
benefit to the cause. Movements
like this necessitate the expendi
tuie of more or less money, and in
this instance where all are alike to
be benefitted, it is only just and
fair that all should bear their just
proportion of the financial burden.
Mr. Zuck's letter will speak for
"Holbrook, Arizona, Jan. 12,
1902. My Dear Sir: It is now
an assured fact, that the commis
sioners selected at the statehood
convention to represent our terri
tory in the interest of statehood at
Washington will not perform the
duties expected of them, and that
it now becomes the necessary duty
Jo arrange for others to fill these
important stations; in order to ac
complish which the committee on
finance must act promptly that the
work in hand may be accomplished.
I have waited until I deemed the
necessity for action to be upon us;
that time having now arrived, the
duty is incumbent on me as your

from Needles says:
are greatly alarmed
over the decision of the United States
Supreme Court in the suit affecting
the title of railroad lands, as it in
volves the title to the town site of
Needles. The town is situated on
one of the sections granted to the
Southern Pacific years ago, but was
ueciareu ioneiieu u iue jfovcruwcuv
because of the failure of the railroad
I to comply with their contracts.
During the past few years the town
j has grown to considerable propor
tions and mauv thoasands of dollars
lars have been expended by individ
uals in improving property, to which
they supposed they would soon ac
quire title, as it was generally thought
the repeated decisions of the United
Strtes Circuit Court declaring the
railroad titles invalid hail made their
claims secure. If the reported de
cision of the Supreme Court is a vic
tory for the Southern Pacific com
pany, it will practically ruin hundreds.
