were 110 tons of Ingots and 8,663 tons

It Is very tvldent that to Judge from
a statistical standpoint copper con
tinues' to occupy* a strong position, and
notwithstanding the light buying of
domestic i and foreign Interests the
probability seems to be that prices will
be well sustained, especially for electro
lytic copper, which is held firmly at
about 15% c cash New York, and for Im

demanded even on this price. Lake
copper, however, Is more freely offered,

Rates on Ore
Some time ago the officials of the
Salt Lake route assured mining men
Interested In the camp's of southern
Nevada the road would establish a
schedule of freight charges on ores
destined for the Salt Lake smelters
that would be satisfactory; it being
the policy of the company to foster the
mining industry and otherwise do all
it can toward the development of the
region through which the road passes.
i It was learned yesterday that the new
schedule would probably be announced
within the next two weeks. Several
Ploche producers have been withhold
ing shipments until the new rate goes
Into effect. At the present time $5.50
per ton is the cheapest ore will be
handled from Caliente to Salt Lake;
that the new rate will be considerably
under this . figure there is no doubt.
Advices from southern Nevada along
the line of the San Pedro confirm the
report that the old Keystdne group of
mines and mill at Good Springs has
passed into the hands of a British syn
dicate tot $337,500. The Keystone group
of mines is one of the best known in
the region and for many years has been
productive of gold, although In recent
years it has been operated only at In
For almost a quarter of a century the
mines of Ploche have been Idle. Not be
cause they lacked ore, for they con
tain lots of it, but because the camp
has been isolated, without transporta
tion facilities or other means of provid
ing methods by which the vast quanti
ties of low grade ore could be handled
economically. In the old days, when
the camp was several hundred miles
away from the nearest railroad station,
only the richer ores could be handled,
the balance was left unmlned. The
time has come when It is possible to
handle the lower grade product profit
ably, and this has been made so by the
building of the San Pedro, Los Angeles
and Stilt Lake railroad.
Tombstone Mines Prosperous
From all of the properties of the
Tombstone Consolidated company come
most favorable reports of rich ore
bodies being encountered, which demon
strates that the ground has not been
worked out above the water level as
waß thought by many, while below the
water level everything Indicates that the
ore bodies are increasing in richneßx,
says the Prospector. The big pumps
are throwing out about 3,000,000 gallons
every twenty-four hours, and the meas
urements show that the water Is being
lowered In the district from fifteen to
twenty feet per month. Work is being
rushed in cutting out a station on the
800-foot level and one of the pumps
from the 700 will then be moved to that
station and the work of handling th"
water facilitated. The management ex
pects to resume sinking In the shaft an
soon as this pump Is Installed and they
hope to sink to a depth of ]000 fe*t
without putting In additional pumping
apparatus. When the 1000-foot level
shall have been reached a large pump
that la now on hand will be placed on
this level and in addition a new onto that
has been ordered. • *

Rich Bullfrog Ore
A small sized sensation was created
A-mong mining men of Columbia and
Uoidfleld on Monday, when the first
shipment of ore from the original
Oullfron mine arrived and passed
through camp, says ft. H. ftlchards,
who has c6me to Los Antfeles from thAt
great gold camp. In order that every
body might be made aware of that
most Important fact when the wagons
containing the ore passed through the
towns a string band was placed on the
forward wagon to dispense music and
attract the attention of the populace.
The ore was considered so valuable
that It was deemed best to send two
fthotftun messengers with It, and their
presence on the WAgons added much to
the Interest manifested by the crowd.
The shipment was the first from the
district, and it required three teams to
haul It. The assay value of the ore
was $36,408, and there was something
like ten tons in the shipment, which
was sent to the Reno reduction works.
The ore was taken from a shaft which
is now only 62 feet deep, and which has
carried shipping values almost from
the grass roots.
Alumina la Found
While doing excavation work In its
tunnel near town a few weeks ago the
Klamath Canal company discovered a
White substance of such a nature and
In so large a quantity that it sent sam*
pies away and had them assayed. The
results, says the Klamath Republican,
show that it Is a formation known
technically as silicate of aluminum. The
assay shows that it is of the purest
quality yet discovered. It is as white
as snow and perfectly solid, though
very light In its natural state. Its
principal value in its natural state
would be for polishing' metals, as It Is
absolutely free from grit, though from
experiments' made It is believed the
substance Can be adapted to other pur
poses. When exposed to heat it be
comes hard and solid as stone.

another half car has been mined.
Good Items Bunched
Joe Gronson, one of the owners of the
Yellow King group of gold mines on the
upper Virgin river In Nevada, reports
having struck a vein four feet wide of
high grade free gold ore. He has taken
out several tons of this ore and
crushed some of it In an arrastra, aver'
aging $20 daily as a reult of his work.
An Important strike Is reported at a
point twelve miles north of Kawlch. a
strong ledge having been uncovered
which shows values as high as $90 and
At the Longfellow the miners are
sinking and drifting and good ore is
being taken to the mill, which gladdens
the hearts of the workers, as most of
the men employed are stockholders In
the mine. Two years ago when the men
were working- for $2 a day In money
and $1 in stock many called them fools,
says the Groveland (Cal.) Prospector,
but now that the mine is paying divi
dends opinion has changed and they
are called lucky.
Le Peron copper mine at Red Cap,
Humboldt county, has been opened by
extending the tunnel this winter, and
now shows more promisingly than ever.
The ledge runs, It is said, generally 25
to 33 per cent. '^
Recently Morris Collins of Indian
Creek, Trinity county, commenced work
on a prospect that showed a small
stringer of rjuartz. Collins opened It
for 150 feet on the surface and found a
ledge running from eight inches to two
feet in width and averaging $16 to $20
a ton. There . are 100 tons of ore fn
The Oregon group In Arizona has been
leased and bonded to Tombstone par
ties,, who have started a drift to cut
the ledge under the old shaft. The last
assays from an average of the vein g-ave
14 per cent copper, ten ounces in sliver,
$3 In gold and 8 per cent in lead.
A second body of ore has been struck
on the Derm-Arizona and there Is little
question now but that this property
will prove to be one of the best mines
ever opened in the Blsbee quadrangle.
The strike was made at the depth of
about 1000 feet, and the drill Is boring
through a body of sulphide ore.
The official flgures of copper produc
tion of the United Verde Copper com
pany for the year ending December 1,
1904, are 30,750,000 pounds of refined cop
per. Included In this output Is 1,150,000
pounds from the Equator mines.
The Elko Free Press represents that a
new vein has been encountered In the
Greenback mine, near Mountain" City,
Nev., which assays from $400 to $2100 in
The Lost Gem mine at Osceola, Nev.,
in which recently a rich strike was
made, bids fair to become one of the
best gold producers tn that state. Work
on the mine has been pushed and the
splendid showing when the ledge was
first encountered has Improved. A
thlrty-flve-foot drift has been run at
the fifty-foot level, and the ore aver
ages more than $150 a ton.
The total output of the North Star
mine near Grass Valley, Cal. (not in
cluding: Gold Hill), during 1904 was
47,447 tons of ore, yielding $773,215.81
($16,296 per ton), coating for rill operat
ing expenses $313,151.26 ($6.60 per ton),
and leaving' an average profit of $9,696
At the Lappln mine, Deadwood, Trin
ity county, the lower tunnel is being
rushed. The tunnel Is on the mill level
and Is being advanced about three feet
a day, and will give 150 feet of stoping
ground. At (he bottom of the shaft the
vein is three feet wide and will average
from $40 a ton upward. As soon as the
tunnel is In the mill will be started.

HOW TO FIND GROUSE
Birds to Which Rules Do Not Alwaya
The ruffed grouse Is one of the uncertain
birds to which ho hard and fast - ruled
will apply, yet he has a few small pecu
liarities of which advantage may be .taken.
In wild, heavy woodland, his original hauntr
he haa a weakness for two things^— an old
tote road,' or any seldom used road, and the
bank of a. stream. A man trying a bit of
woods with which he Is unacquainted will
probably see more grouse near an old road
than anywhere else. In hilly . country the
lower slopes of the ravines are apt to bo
the best of ground. In level country the
of standing timber are Ideal places, and If
the thicket happens to mark the edge of a
clover field do much the better. Never pass
even a small thicket which stands out in a
clover Held with a wood upon any ulile.
Grouse are fond of clover, and until winter
sets In are apt to be in any fair shelter
near the field. Later, In snowtlme, th«
borders and Interior of large* woodlana
swamps are the chosen places. If there be
a region ot thick, low-lying forest, having!
olose-grown beech ridges here and there.
thes6 surely will repay "the labor of beating
strongholds of all the railed grouse of the
neighborhood. Old windfalls and slashings
are Rood, because they afford acres of the
sort of shelter the birds prefer In .. cold
weather. Should a slngJe bird flush, proceed
warily and ready fbr Instant action, ' for ' a
Second, and perhaps three or tour ' Btrsg*
glers, may be within gunshot, of the spot.
Ground good for, one bird may be as at
tractive to three or four, although each.in
dividual remains some slight distance from
the others. When beating b'drder thicket*
with a comrade I prefer to work In the
cover about along the line where thicket
and forest Join. Most men will choose the
outside, but ruffed grouse almost Invariably
dash for the wood, hence across the line of
tlrn of the Inside nun. Such Miots are none
too easy, and trees have a knack of get
ting in the way, yet as a general thing
the Inside position means the most fun. ■
An Indication of the degree of humidity of
the atmosphere Is found by a Paris meteorolo
glst In the state of the pavements. When
these remain muddy there will W no Imme
diate change In the weather, but a Changs is
Indicated when they begin to dry. . .■..»■;
