of man within even less than that
margin. The entire business plan of
tne wona today is ngured out so
minutely upon the suggestion that
"Time waits for no man." that its

New Year'.- day passed off in a very
unostentatious manner in Preseott.
and save for the annual turkey, goose
and duck feasts that necessitated a
practical suspension of business for
the greater part of the day. all was
serene and quiet. There were a few
homes open to informal receptions,
where friends were made welcome and
where eggnog was used to christen
the launching of life's vessel upon
the sea of a pew calendar year. In
ditfei . I.'.. ir1ial and total abstinence
reolves were made with reference to
many of the luxuries of life, each of
which was received with the usual

thought best to ignore it as being of
no practical value and commenced
the work of sinking a new shaft.
This shaft is now down 300 feet
and a drift has been run in both
directions from it at the 100 foot Jin

The south drift at each level is in
from 50 to 60 feet. At the 100 foot

It is his purpose to push work on

There is also a small force of men
at work on the Hackberrv mine
which is located some distance south
of the Iron Queen. The old workings
of this mine are being cleaned out
and retimbered and when this is com
pleted a further exploration of the
property will be made. The Com
mercial Mining company built a
narrow guage railroad between these
mines and their smelter and equipped
it with a small locomotive and can
for transporting ore to the smelter.
When they closed the mines and

while the equipment is also stored
at the smelter. It is Mr. Treadwell's
intention to rebuild this railroad to
connect with the Preseott k Eastern
railroad for the more convenient
transportation of the ore to the new
smelter, which is located about a
mile below Mayer.
At the time of the Journal-Miner
man's visit the smelter was in opera
tion under the sujiervision of M. P.
Boss the inventor of the oil burning
smelter and it was giving excellent
satisfaction. This is the first smelter
of the kind ever built and is today
the only one of its kind in operation.
To a certain extent it is yet in its
experimental stage, but has been
operated sufflcently to demonstrate
its merit in the treatment of copper
ore at a very small expense. It is
called the Hydro Carbon furnace and
the patent is owned and the smelter
built by the Hydro Carbon Smelting
company of New York, of which M.
P. Boss, its inventor, is the president
as well as the engineer. The furnace
has a capacity of from 75 to 100 tons
of ore per day. depending on the
nature of the ore. and while this one
is built specially for the treatment
of copper, it can be made to treat
lead and iron ores equally well by
The main idea of the smelter proper
is a continuous reverberatory. a flame
impacting upon the longer side of a
pile of ore upon the inclined bottom
of the furnace.
The ore is roasted in a hearth which
receives the heat from the smeltiug
hearth. Also below the smelting
hearth is an open converter on a prin
ciple which is also new. the main
dea being a flowing of the molten
matter across an aerated zone over
which passes a continuous stream of
flux to relieve in a measure the con
sumption of the lining of the con
verter. The smelter proper is work
ing in a very satisfactory manner,
but a trial has not yet lieeu made of
the converter. If the converter
proves a success the smelting process
will be continuous, and the ore will
le fed into the roaster at a consider
able elevation above the converters,
and will be roasted, smelted and re
fined, until it comes out pure cop
per from the converters without any
additional handling, thus effect ing a
very large saving in exieuse.
The smelter is equipped with rive
oil burners which are capable of pro
ducing a most intense beat. At the
time of the writer's visit only one of
these was in operation, and twas pro
ducing sufficient heat to smelt the
The success of the smelter, which
now seems practically assured means
another great advance in the method
of economically treating ores.
A spur has been built from the
Crowned King extension of the P. 4
E. railroad to the smelter, which is
only a short distance, providing facili
ties for the economical handling of
the ore from the car to the roaster.
NEW YEAR RETROSPECT.
In this early stage of the New Year.
it is fitting that the American people
should give time for resume or a brief
recapitulation of the wonderful com
mereial achievements of the country
during the year just closed. The
business tact and activity in all sec
tions of the United States as well as
in our new possessions, have been tin
exampled in our history. The growth
of all branches of industry has never
been so widespread, and is, of course,
the chief stimulus of our fiscal sta
bility, w net her trusts are wise com
binations or not. the fact remains
that the formation of these corpora
tions has materially strengthened the
fortifications of commerce and their
Iwttlemeuts so far as controlling sup
ply and demand enter into the situa
tion, are well nigh impregnable, and
no infusion could add to a possible
increase in the power they are wield
ing unless it comes in the nature of
greater activity and expansion. Un
til congress, assisted by the attorney
general of the United States, has final
ly passed upon the right of these in
stitutions to exist, it is not likely
that the octupus will go in search of
new blood until the exhilaration from
the supply 011 hand is on the wane.
It cannot well le disputed that ex-
cesses have been too freely indulged
and. as a result, something of a pan
icky condition in financial circles
loomed ominously over the laud for
several months. A resourceful treas
ury and a helpful disposition on the
part of Uncle Sam were salient means
n relieving the stringency. The
treasury never in its history contained
so much good to the credit of the
government as it holds today, and it
still on the increase. This condi
tion is attributed to the adoption of
the gtdd standard in 1S9C. Wages all
over the country were never higher
and in no previous vear has there
leen such phenomenal increase from
the employer to the employee as was
the case during UBS, The agricul
tural world has been so prosperous
that they have Iteen obliged to slight
the harvest liecause of lack of help.
The building trades have had their
ranks depleted and exhausted owing
to the enormous amount of work in
their line, and the cry of "help want
ed" went begging all over the laud.
Real estate grad.lly enhanced ira
value in all the cities and is still
moving onward and upward. Owing
to our prosierity there was a decided
increase in imports of merchandise.
It is never to be expected that all
industries fare alike. Some features
declined and revenues from exports
were somewhat diminished. Then we
have enjoyed a healthful peace among
ourselves and with the world at large.
It has been given to us to eniov the
fruits and blessings of a "land flow
ing with milk and honey." The
fut in e looks even brighter. The halo
of the past should not lead us into
over confidence in our prestige. The
burden of the present is light and
easily Itorne, and to maintain the
present standard the country requires
the wisest and most conservative
planning by those holding its destiny
in their hands.
Old Viznagu Mine Operated by
Douglas. Lacey and Co. in Low
er California a Wonder.
Ten Thousand Dollar Ore in Large
Ouanties Found in the An
JJQUIO AIR ENTERTAINMENT.
The Los Angeles Times of recent
date, speaking of the Viznaga mine in
Lower California, aud which is being
operated by Douglas, Lacey & Co.,
says: Sensational as a miser's dream
"come true" are the reports and evi
dence of a gold strike which arrived
in Los Angeles yesterday from arid
and remote Lower California. In the
lower Viznaga mine. Alamo district,
seventy miles from Euseuada. in
Lower California, there has just been
opened a seven foot ledge of ore,
each ton of which, it is reported,
yields over 810,000. It is believed
there are "millions in it."
Maj. H. M. Russell is the principal
owner of the Viznaga, and about a
score of other mines in the immediate
vicinity. News of the big strike was
brought by the major's brother, F. E.
Russell, who arrived from the mine
As evidence of the fabulous rich
ness of the mine, Russell brought up
a nnck ot gold weighing zlo ounces,
and valued at 83.655. He states that

and that the gold was removed from
the ore by the little five stamp mill

brought quite a large amount of the
ore, which was milled here and tested
yesterday afternoon, and it is re

all sides, making its richness apppa-

superintendent of the company's
group of claims in the Alamo district.
About a week ago Major Russell
received a telegram from his brother,
stating that a ledge had just been
opened in the Vizuaga yielding 81.000
ore. A few days later a letter arrived
stating that the lead had been follow
ed farther in, aud the ore laid bare
went 85.000 to the ton. Then the
milling was made which showed the
ore to be worth over 810.0H0 a ton.
Superintendent Russell was too much
exercised over the great Hud to stay
longer at the scene. He immediately
closed the mine, put several trusty
men on guard and started for Los
Angeles to report and recxive ociem.

A Large Audience Well Enteratained
at the Opera House Last Evening.
A large audience assembled last
night at the opera house to witness
the experiments with liquid air and
to listen to Prof. Patty's lecture on
the subject. The latter is an elo
quent speaker and seems thoroughly
familiar with the subject of liquid
air. He gave a great deal of interest
ing information concerning this ap
parently contradictory substance and
if he had stopped the entertainment
at the conclusion of his address,
many people would have left the hall
skeptical in regard to his assertions.
By a number of experiments how
ever, he convinced all present of the
truth of everything he said in his
lecture, and of the wonderful proper
ties of this substance.
His first experiment consisted of
his taking a bunch of carnations,
nice, fresh and fragrant ones and sub
mitting them to a bath of liquid air,
freezing them until they were so
brittle that they crumbled in his
hands like crisp potato chips. To
demonstrate that freezing a substance
with liquid air does not injure it, he
reserved one of the flowers which
after it had thawed out was as fresh
and fragrant as it was before under
going the freezing process.
This he accounted for by the an
omalous condition of liquid air. as
he explained it, that while it is a
liquid, it does not contain a single
particle of moisture. Of course this
is contrary to all preconceived ideas
of liquids as the liquids which people
are familiar with all contain a super
abundance of moisture.
The air is a little thicker than
water, yet not so thick as quicksilver,
and he threw small portions of it
over the audience. While it could
be heard to strike jit was immediately
transformed into gaseous instead of
liquid air aud left no mark or sign
where it had struck.
Next he took a small rubber ball,
aud immersed it in the fluid, the
temperature of which is 312 degrees
below zero. It was immediately
frozen until it crumbled in his hands.
An ordinary tin dipper was treated
with it aud then he struck the table
with the dipper when it smashed
into a thousand pieces, being as brit
tle as 'glass, and the particles flying
for several feet. At this point he

FOB THE YOUNG MAN WITH
Time and again we see young men
just arriving at their legal majority,
or having barely pawed it, suddenly
stopped in a career foil of promise.
Disease has laid its hand on the lungs !
He who never took a thought for him
self must be careful now. He must be
careful about food and drink, careful
about his clothing and his exercise. No
more late hours or night air. No more
athletics. His lungs are "weak." He
has an ominous cough. He ha fallen
away in flesh.
When that cloud of consumption fall
on a young man' life it darkens every-
thing. The words of love die unspoken
on his lips. He cannot speak now to
the girl he hoped would share his future.
Middle aged men that have been under
that cloud remember it still with a
shiver. But the important fact is that
there are men who were once in danger
from weak lungs who have grown
strong again, married and brought up
HOW IT atAPPKVED.
There is no chance about such cures.
If only a few persons had been benefited,
it might be said that they had exagger
ated their danger or had only been suf
fering from some common ailment. But
when the cured are numbered by thou
sands ; when the doctor's diagnosis was
consumption ; when every symptom bore
out that diagnosis weakness, emacia
tion, bleeding of the longs and these
sufferers were perfectly and permanently
cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, it must be concluded
that these cures are not of chance, bat
due to the healing power of a great
remedy, for coughs, weak lungs, bron
chitis, and like diseases, which if neg
lected or uuski'iil-Viy treated, find a fatal
termvr.ation in consumption.
" I beg to state that I have used three
bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery since my correspondence with
vou," writes Mr. A. F. Novotny, of New
York. N. Y. (Box 1437). "I feel that I
am in need of no more medical assist
ance When I started to take yonr medi
cine I had a regular consumptive cough,
of which I was afraid, and everybody
cautioned and warned me concerning it.
I was losing weight rapidly, was very
pale and had no appetite whatever. Now
my condition is changed entirely. I
do not cough at all, have gained eight
pounds in weight, have recovered my
healthy color, and my appetite is enor
mous. In conclusion I beg to state that
I can and will recommend your medi

GRATITUDE WIU. OUT.
Gratitude, like murder, will out. Yon
can't stifle it Tc that is due the fact
that there is so great a mass of testi
mony to the remarkable cures effected
by "'Golden Medical Discovery." It is
testimony which no one can gainsay ;
testimony indisputable and unassailable.
It comes from people of all classes and
conditions, but in many cases from those
who have found a cure in the use of
Discovery " when other medicines have
failed to help, and often when physicians)
had pronounced the sufferer incurable
" I took a severe cold which settled in
the bronchial tubes," writes Rev. Frank
Hay, of Nortonville, Jefferson Co., Kans.
"After trying medicines labeled 'Sure
Cure,' almost without number, I was led
to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery. I took two bottles
and was cured, and have
