IS VERY ACTIVE
All Quarries in Buckingham Scc-|

Arvonia, Va.. May 26.?Notwith?
standing the three freshets, which
more, or less demoralised business lor.
a season, the slate industry of tins!
Arvonia, or Northeast Buckingham. I
section, has been particularly active1
since the severe weather of tho past
winter, tho six largo quarries being!
constantly employed In producing this
looting material and shipping it to
all sections of the South and West.
The demand for slato has recently
become very active, the most Insistent
calls lor tho product coming from
North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and
other rapidly developing States of the,
South. Kur some of the popular sizes
tho local dealers have been ablo with
difficulty to supply the demand.
At present live of the quarries aro .

the largest ami oldest in tip* Held
being temporarily out of commission
On account of the great floods of
March. The only product of tho slate
quarries here now la roofing material, '
the large structural slate mill having
been blown down in a terrific wind
storm somo years ago and never re-!
A largo mill is now In the process
of erection at Penlan. tho southern
end of tho Buckingham slate field, the.
machinery being installed lor the
manufacture of all kinds of structural ?
material from the slate stock.
Tho slate workers he-e, formerly
Welshmen^ almost entirely, now In?
clude many native Virginia boys who j
have taken up the splitting of tho ,
slate stones. They soon bi come adept
at the work, and in a few years of
apprenticeship rival those who come
directly from the I'enrhyn quarries of
North Wales. Within recent years a
number of the Welsh people have left
here, some of them going to the j
Northwest. Many of the older ones i
have, died, leaving the younger gen?
eration, who cannot he told from na?
tive Virginians either by Speech or
There Is also considerable activity
In other minerals In Buckingham
county at this lime. It Is understood
that a Northern company Is about to
take over large mineral properties
near Dlllwyn, the properties having
formerly and for many years been |
worked for gold. Goid Is found In.
fairly good percentages to the depth
of fifty feet, then the deposit of
pyrites, Similar to the Boutsa county ,
deposit. Is found. In the debris which
has for years been thrown aside, gold
experts say there Is r- fortune, pro- j
Vlded It can be extracted cheaply and
according to the latest methods. This
mine was worked In ante-hellum days
by slaves, and tho traditions say that
In tnose days vast quantities of gold
were taken out of the shafts. In
more recent > ears the property passed
Into the hands of Hoger A. Fryor, Jr.,
of New York, who in turn sold It to ?
the present owners.
This mine Is located not far from i
the old "Rough and Ready," or Ore. ley
mine, which has not been worked for
many yenrs. Soon after the Civil War
Horace fireeley purchased the property,
It passing shortly into the hands of
his heirs. Within recent years the
property was bought in by prominent
capitalists, and It Is thought that It
will later be worked a^aln.
I AH told, there nre no less than fif?
teen gold Klines in Buckingham coun?
ty that have In times past produced
gold in more or less paying quantities.
Those who are In a position to
know claim that as soon as the many
Buckinghnm mines are worked accord?
ing to modern methods, with new ma?
chinery for collecting nil the gold
from low-grade ores, the properties
will at once assume large values, and
will produce gold In quantities com?
parable to the average mine of Col?
orado or C?l'fornla.
It Is also stated by mining experts
that as soon as machinery for taking
care of the sulphur byproducts Is In?
stalled that alone will prove profit?
able and pay all oNpenses of mining.
There are now four copper mines
near New Canton, and three miles cast
of Arvonia, that have not only pro?
duced copper, but copper and Iron
pyrites In paying quantities. So in?
tense were tile acids produced by the
disintegration of the dumps under the
action of the atmosphere that all the
fish were killed in the creeks and
ponds adjacent to the mines. There
Is a movement on foot now to get
control o:' all these mines and work
them again upon a large scale.

was not sufficient proof of any tail

decision was atlirmed. Convinced with?
