• A correspondent of The Herald writes
as follows regarding Beatty, Nev.:
Well, of all the camps around I think
Beatty Is the best, cleanest and has
better mines. The Llge Harris mine
has Just made a big strike. The men
have opened a ledgo that assays $1800
to the ton. It Is about two miles east
of Beatty. In the Shoshone mine, the
richest mine the world has ever known,
ig;,/a. tunnel In eighty feet and
the ore assays $500 to the ton. Mr.
Montgomery, the owner, r man worth
between $5,000,000 and $10,000,000, Is
building a hotel; also an office building.
"I have bought some property here.
All the. freight has to be hauled from
Las Vegas, a distance of 120 miles. The
railroad people will start to build here
in about thirty days."

Higgins Examines Mines
Thomas Higgins of Los Angeles Is in
Blsbee, Ariz., to confer with stock
holders of the Higgins Development
company. 1 Higgins has passed several
days looking over the ground of the
company. It is known that recently
prominent Michigan mining men have
signified a willingness to get behind the
Higgins Development and put up suffi
cient money to continue the exploration
work. Should their advances be ac
cepted.plans include the placing of Mr.
Higgins at the head of the company.
Mr. Higgins will be in Bisbee for sev
eral days. Before he leaves there will
be a final conference, at which a definite
conclusion will be reached. A gentle
man familiar with the present situa
tion, but ,npt speaking authoritatively,
has said. that In his opinion the nego
tiations pending would not be attended
with 'success. ■

'judge W. H. Fuller and Secretary
Dexter of the Empire Mining company,
which is owned by Los Angeles stock
holders, has been informed that in an
old abandoned shaft half way up the
mountain side on the group at Search
light, from which, years ago Johnny
Flynn, the .original locater of the prop
erty, extracted much of the rich ore
which he run through his crude arastra
there is a monster cropping, and In the
'center of this E. B. Scott had a single
shot fired recently. This' shot broke
arid loosened many tons of ore. That
is, free gold showing in almost every
piece, and all of it horning long yellow
strings. It is estimated that the shot
broke sufficient ore for a creditable mill
run. ., Further, up the.mountan side ths
winze shaft in the main tunnel is down
seventy feet. The ore at this depth
is^ mostly of a sulphide nature. Nu-'
merous samples have been taken dur
ing the progress of the work which
have assayed from $10 .to $1000 a ton.
The general average of the ore is high

Son,ra Mines Bought
In t Los Angeles the details have been
completed for the development of the
Mexican state of Sonora inaugurated
by B. H. Harriman and his associates
In, the Southern Pacific and Col. W. C.
Greert, the copper magnate.' Epes Ran
dolph, representing the Southern Pa
cific magnate, has taken over the lartra
holdings of F. A. Hartmann and La
Dura Mining company of this city In
Sonora. The deal is the largest of its
kind carried to completion here in
some time. The price paid is said upon
good authority to have been in the
neighborhood of $1,000,000. i The prop
erties-purchased are La Dura groups
of, mines at La Dura, near the head
of the Yaqul river, one of the richest
properties in one of the richest min
ing sections in the world, arid undevel
oped coal fields at Pllares.
The deal was negotiated by Rich
ardson brothers of this city,, who own
big Interests in the country to be trans-
v versed by the railroad, which will be
built from the Arizona line southward
thrpugh the great mining region of
Sierra Madre In Sonora 'and down £he

Desert Mines ' Popular
In an interesting article about the
mines on the desert the icivorslcie
Enterprise says that since the comple
tion of. the San Pedro, Lou Angelc>B
and Salt Lake railroad there .has been
a great revival of mining operation*
in the New York mountains, ■ situated
1 \n,., the ' northeastern portion [of San
Bernardino county close to the- Nevada
line. Were this district located on the
other side, thousands would doubtless
lie rushing to It as they are flocking
to'tßullfrog and Ooldfleld, for here have
been | made strikes fully as good at
many of those over which people have
been running; wild In the Sftgebrush
The rllatrtet has long been known
us one pos»e«slng large bodies of flnt
gold nnd copper ore, theie not, however,
having been of sufficiently high gra,l«»
to pay for the long haul necessary
before the building of the Salt Lako
railroad. A number of companies took
up claims and developed, them In a
small way so as to show their worth,
and, while keeping quiet about a num
ber of rlrh strikes, secured additional
properties until now, that the railroad
Is finished and the Iron horse skirts,
the base of the mountain range giving
a ready and easy outlet for ore, they
have thn Keater part of the best mineral
lnnd taken up. Although the extension
of the Santa Fe from Manvel to Ivan
pah gave an Impetus to development,
and attracted attention to the district,
It Is only now that Its worth Is begln
nlng*to be fully realized. ■ ■-. ;:'■;;
Among the several lioa Angeles com
panies in the district Is the Desert
Mining and Reduction company which
recently struck a ledge of seventy feet,
select Famples from which assay thou
sands of dollars to the ton. .Average
assays go $20 gold and 720 pounds of
copper to the ton. ThG width of the
ledge Is phenomenal and assays high.
Magnesite Is Found
Another valuable find on . this com
panyls property Is that of large bodies
of mica and magnesite, the latter be
ing found at a depth of forty feet on
property which was being developed
for the former. Magnesite Is a rich
find for a mining and smelting com
As a result of recent strikes there Is
considerable talk of the erection of
mills, smelters and other Improvements
In the near future. The district la so
situated that its trade of all kinds is
practically certain to come to Los An
geles, and its development Is another
evidence of the fact that in Southern
California there is one of the world's
mineral belts that is bound to contri
bute millions to the city's wealth. Ore
can be readily shipped to the smelter,
which is soon to reopen at Needles, at
$1 a ton. There is also an abundance
of water and timber in the mountains.
Development In Orange
A ten-mule team has left Bakersfleld
for the Silverado mining district, twen
ty miles east of Orange. The mules will
be used for hauling ore from the old
Dunlap mine to El Modena or Orange
for shipment. The mine is owned by
the Bourland Mine and Milling com
pany. The ore is crushed and sam
pled at the mine, where it is sacked
for haulmg 1 to the depot. From eight
to ten men are employed In the develop
ment of the properties. The one aver
ages about $200 per ton in gold and sil
ver, and according to reports the mine
is improving with 'development.
The Parallel Gold Mining company
has placed an order In Los Angeles for
a fifteen horse power gasoline hoisting
engine and several cars of lumber and
other supplies, to be shipped at once
to Searchlight for installing it in its
mines. A contract for the work has
been let to T. D. Fourney of Los An
The company has now fifteen claims
in the heart of Searchlight. A survey
is. now being made preparatory to ob
taining patent. The main shaft is down
165 feet a,nd sinking is to be resumed.
This property, together with the Cyrus
Noble and Santa Fe groups, which ad
join it, has produced over $100,000, all

Development Is going on in the Saz
erac group, owned by Carl Anderson
and A. M. Jones of Los Angeles, and F.
D. Howells, jr., of Monrovia. The prop
erty .is located at Dupont. Thirty-two
feet of work has been done on a drift
at the. 100-foot level, during which the
vein has widened from one to three feet.
The ore greatly resembles that of the
famous Quartette, and is improving
all the time.
The famous Duplex property contin
ues to hold up Its great record. On
the 300-foot level the high average of
$17 a ton, struck some months ago, Is
being steadily sustained, and now in
another part, an enormous body of al
tered porphyry twenty feet In width
has been uncovered assaying $47.54 and
$52.60 at four feet from the surface.
Will Start Mill
'A new mill will be started within
about two weeks at Juniper camp,
twenty miles from Searchlight. At the
Chlquita mine at this point there are
now 600 tons of ore on the dump await
ing the completion of the mill. This
mine has a main shaft down 230 feet,
and the main ore shoot has been proved
for 300 feet. The'veln Is two and one
half feet wide, with free milling oro
averaging $35 a ton. A thirty-foot shttft
has also been sunk on what la believed
to be another and distinct ore shoot.
Here eight Inches of ore has been found
assaying $150 a ton, and five feet that
The Juniper has a shaft down 100

that the first shipment of forty tons cf
ore from the Montgomery Shoshone
mine at Ilullfrog netted $2300 per ton,

The presence of gold in the Sutter
basin was discovered In n peculiar
manner. A company of Sacramento
and San Francisco parties purchased
the so-called Bannon estate lands for
the purpose of raising beans. In order
to supply the traction engines that
were used to plow the lands It was
necessary to get below the surface
alkali to obtain pure water for the
boilers, and with this purpose in view
several wells were bored to a depth of
from thirty to forty feet. Gravel and
sands were encountered, and, at the
suggestion of Judge Shields and En
gineer Nurse of the public works com
mission, both of whom are largely in
terested in the lands, samples of the
gravel and sands were sent to, reliable
assayers, who gave returns of $18 per
cubic yard. It then dawned on the
owners that they possessed what will
possibly prove to be the richest dredge
land ever discovered. — Grass Valley
New Gem Mines
According to mining men who have
returned from the peninsula Dr. Wilson
and C. Johnson of the San Diego Gem
company have returned from a two
weeks' trip to Lower California where
they examined some gem properties.
They report the purchase of two good
claims about twenty miles south of
Campo, both yielding tourmaline' and
hyacinth. Before leaving the property
they put three men to work. They
expect to return to the mines next week
to look after the work being done. They
report the existence of considerable
gold in the neighborhood of the gem
mines, the same being worked by
Mexicans, who were taking out about
two dollars per day per man.
Articles of incorporation of the' Ped
rara Onyx company have been filed in

holders are L. A. Blochman, A. Bloch
man, W. R. Ramsdell, James Wells
and Sam F. Smith. The purposes for
which the company, has been formed
are to buy and operate onyx quarries
in Lower California, and to prepare the
stone for market. Legal provisions are
also made for the establishment in the
future of telegraph and telephone lines,

A. Hattenbach of Los Angeles, a well
known mining man, visited the O'Brien
property, north of Phoenix, Ariz., last
week. Hattenbach says the O'Brien
Is a remarkable property and may
become one of the big producers of
Arizona. The development consists of
nearly 6000 feet of underground work,
consisting of tunnels, open cuts, shafts,
drifts, uprises and winzes. The deep
est shaft exposing the vein on its dip,
Is over 600 feet.
It has been estimated by prominent
mining engineers who have thoroughly
examined this remarkable property
that there are in the vicinity of 200,000
tons of pay ore exposed to sight. Be
tween four and five thousand tons of
this ore has been milled showing to a
certainty that when this property Is
fully equipped It will be a large pro
ducer of sulphide ore. Much money
has been expended In getting this pro
perty to Its present state of develop
A company has been organized to
work placer ground near CJlla City.
The company Is composed of Sun
Francisco, Los Angeles and Yuma
capitalists. These gold fields are well
known to mining men in the vicinity
of Yuma, having been worked on a
small scale by panning for the past
thirty years, during which time, as
acserted, several million dollara' worth
of gold oro have been extracted. They
have been worked In recent years by
Mexicans and Indians, who can make
$1 it day panning gold, but sre now
almost exhausted for working In b
small way, find the new company pro
poses to work thorn on such a large
srale as to extract the gold at ft mini
mum expense. They propose to take
water from the Olla river and pipe It
from a reservoir to the fields. The
fall will give the water great pressure.
A Los Angeles company has been or
ganized to work a big tract of placer
ground, about ten miles from the Colo
rado river, In Yuma county. The com
pany Is known as the Hold Placer
Prospecting association and is plan
ning to Install a large quantity of ma
chinery and work the claims on an ex*

NORTHERN ARIZONA '
MINES ARE ACTIVE
Turkey Creek a Favored Section.
Large Mines are Sold for
One of the richest mining sections in
Ynvapal county is found about twenty
miles southeast of Prescott in what is
known aa the .Turkey creek district.
Recent reports from that section indi
cate a season of activity. Preparations
are being made on some of the larger
properties for more extensive and sys
tematic development, while numerous
prospects are being opened which show
good Indications of developing Into pay
ing mines. . ' . .
Among the leading' properties of the
district is the French Lily group of
four claims on which about 800 feet of
development has been done by shafts
and drifts. At present development Is
being pushed on a new tunnel that was
started recently. The tunnel Is In about
thirty-flve feet and the ledge which it
is following nhows some very rich ore
carrying gold, silver and copper in pay-
Ing quantities. Davis & Mayer are thi
owners of the property and are carry-
Ing on the development.
Bodle to Resume
Preparations are being made at the
Bodie mine to begin active develop
ment In a short time. The Bodle is one
of the pioneer properties of Yavapal
county, Its ore having been hauled In
early days many miles to smelters to
be used aa flux. The property is owned
by Stuckey & Lane of San FranclßCO,
who purchased from Spence & Thomp
son about a' year ago. Mr. Stuckey
had tt bonded at one time and opened
a large body of galena, which turned
him a handsome profit. The principal
development Is a shaft 400 feet, but the
owners propose to open further by
means of drifts and cross cuts on the
Big Copper Proposition
Much has been said about the Rain
bow group of claims near Turkey sta
tion, in the Turkey creek district. Judg
ing from the reports of experienced
miners who have examined the proper
ty, it Is undoubtedly a copper proposl
tlon of vast rtlmen«k>ns. For a dis
tance of nearly 600 feet In width the
ore yields reiiirns of 2 per cent copper
near the. surface. It U thought, and
the limited amount of development done
proves, that the value Increases with
depth. The owners, Campbell, Nellls A
Smith of Ohio, are trying to place th?
property with a compans* that has
means to develop In the % extenslve man
ner It demands.
Borne of the richest gold producers In
Arizona are located In the nradnhaw
mountains, near Prencott. Among th?
foremost producer*) of that section Is
the Lincoln group, owned by Charles
J. Oeorge of Los Angeles and asso
ciates. Mr. .Oedrge left for Los An
geles recently, having been at the Lln
'coln property for a month superintend
ing the billldlng of a wagon road from
Crown King to the' Lincoln mine, a dis
tance of two and one-half miles. The
road wns difficult to build, owing to thf;
rough formation, and cost In the neigh
borhood of $3500. However, It will bn
the means of saving a great deal of ex
pense to the company In the way of
affording better facilities for supplied
and machinery for the mine and mill.
The five stamp mill at the Lincoln
mine will be started about May 25, and
there Is sufficient high grade ore block
ed out to keep It running steadily for
several years to come. A larger en
gine was Installed at the mill recently,
which .will furnish more power and en
able the mill to handle its full capacity
of ore dnllyv Some additional machin
ery has also been put In, consisting of
the new improved Frue vanner and a
full equipment of Wifley tables. Plans
are now being outlined by the owners
for the inßtallation of ten additional
stamps, making it a fifteen stamp mill.
The showing of ore In the mine fully
Justifies such enlargement, i A force
of about thirty-flve men Id employed
at the mine blocking and taking out ore
which averages something ,over $30 per
ton. The ore bodies are from four to
five feet In width and all tests show
them to be continuous.
The new mill recently completed by
the Poland-American company, will be
stayted m a short time and kept busy
during the coming season handling the
ore. from the numerous claims owned
by the company. The new plant, which
covers a space 70x84, has a capacity of
100 tons • dally, and the company has
sufficient ore on the dumps to keep the
mill running steadily at Us full capac-
The mill Is modern In every respect
and built of first class material, every
thing that went into its construction
being the best. Its battery consists of
four improved Nisson stamps and two
Improved rolls for the soft ore. The
handling of the ore Is all done by grav
ity Incurring very little expense. Chas.
J. George Is one of the leading owners
In this property also.
Bonnie Changes Hands
The McCoy brothers, have disposed of
their Interests 'in the Bonnie mine, on
Lynx creek, twelve miles east of Pres
cott, Arizona, to F. E. Evans of New
York, and John Teaze of Brooklyn,
who arrived recently to take possession
of the property. New officers and di
rectors have been elected and plans
formulated for more extensive develop
ment. An up-to-date reduction plant
will, be erected soon and the Bonnie
ores treated on the ground. A large
amount of the ore has been treated
during the past year at the Val Verdo
smelter with satisfactory results. The
development of this property consists
of a double compartment shaft over 200
feet deep, a drift from the 100-foot level
running south on the main ledge for a
distance of 500 feet, a 70-foot winze
and several hundred feet In cross cuts.
The ore is gold bearing quartz carry
ing considerable hematite, and also
copper, lead and silver. The ore body
is between four and five feet in width
and is continuous.

A writer relates a story of a far
mer's servant who did not believe that
the cattle could speak, and to make
sure, he hid In his master's stable on
Christmas eve and listened. When
the clock struck twelve he was sur
prised at what he heard. "We shall
have hard work to do this day week,"
said one horse. "Yes; the farmer's
servant Is heavy," answered the other
horse. "And the way to the church
yard Is long and steep," said the
first. The servant was burled that
day week. From Howlson's "Sketches
of Upper Canada," we learn "that on
one moonlit Christmas eve he saw an
Indian creeping cautiously through
the woods. In response to an Inquiry,
he said, 'Me watch to see deer kneel.
Christmas night all deer kneel and
look up to Great Spirit.' "
In Belgium, young girls taking a
candle to the wells at midnight see
the faces of their future husbands. A
light extinguished on the table at the
Christmas feast foreshadowed the
death of one guest.
Christmas in France, Belgium. Italy
and Spain Is celebrated chiefly by the
church. Although marked in the cal
endar as a Jour de fete, the festivi
ties are deferred to New Year's day.
However, all Roman Catholics regard
It as a solemn feast of the church,
and after Easter as the most impor
tant in the calendar. The Interiors
of the churches are beautifully dec
orated; and on Christmas eve. the mid
night mass is one of the most attrac
tive spectacles in these countries.
In the United States the anniversary
of the birth of Jesus Is honored with
solemn worship as well as social Joy.
In the large cities, the poor are pro

Typhoid fever is known to lurk in
water and milk more than in any other

has received a great benefaction. The

has not less than forty deaths per
month from typhoid fever. A disease
