of destroying the belief In the "break."
It Is at present entirely untouched by
the drill. The nearest well le the Em

corner of the section.
Section 31 on tho west contains a
number of wells belonging to the Con

greatest purt of the property.
Tho Claremont's deep hole on 4, 20-15,
on which work has been going on for
several years, not fully determined, is
just across the line from the American
Petroleum's. This work proves clearly
that the eastern part of the property
Is very deep territory. AH the wells
referred to here aro on what Is called
the west side; the nearest on the east
side are tho Standard's on 28, about
half a mile from the American Petro

the southernmost of these may said
to have been closed tlie "break."

developed, though moro extensively on
their western line than on their east

are a few quotations.
"I refuse either to confirm or deny
the report. I have nothing to say on

"So far as I am concerned, there
is no cheap oil on Sun Fibncasco bay.

I would advise evory producer in the
state of California to storo before sell

them to get the oil in steel storage,
when possibly a system of storage
certificates could be arranged."—Stan

reported cut, and can't say anything
about its truth or falsity."—ll. H.

IN IRON SULPHIDES
GOL.DFIELD, July 3. —A prospecting
shaft is being sunk on a strong east
and west vein on the Manning lease
on the Oro, about 300 tout west of tho
main shaft. It is down eighteen feet
and shows a large body of quartz in
which considerable Iron sulphides is
appearing. This will be sunk some
distance further for prospecting pur
poses, and may develop commercial
values. Good pannlngs have recently
been secured from nearby on the same
vein, and there gjre strong indications
of an ore shoot In this vicinity. The
main shaft has been unwatered and
retimbered to a depth of 275 feet, and
a contract will soon be let for sinking
it about 200 feet further. Lateral
work will then be undertaken to de
velop a system of oroM veins that ap
parently intersects this neighborhood.

JUMPS RAILROAD LAND
Acts Upon Advice of Lawyers
That Southern Pacific Can
not Hold Territory
COALINGA, July 3.—The United
Development company made another
move in Its fight against the Southern
Pacific, when it hauled lumber to tho
Hftuthwest corner of the southwest
quarter of section 19, 20-15 last week.
George I). Roberts of tho Stockhold
ers Oil company Is the president of the
United, and he attended to the jumping
personally. It is understood that the
company will erect a rig and drilling on
section 19, hut on this location. At
least this is the present plan.
A few weeks ago the United hauled
lumber to two locations on 7, 21-15, but
did not proceed With the work of erect
ing a derrick, as the hauling of lumber
sufficed for assessment work. The
Southern Pacific brought no action
against the United, but Superintendent
Hively of the K. T. nnd O. notified the
company that it was trespassing.
It cannot be foretold what action the
railroad company will take in the event
that the United gnr>s ahead with the
present plans of rtfcing up a rig and
drilling on section 12, but a number of
those connected with tho latter com
pany stated that they intend sinking a
hole there without delay.
Tne United Development company is
composed of local men who located on
Southern Pacific land shortly aftpr Ed
mund Burke brought suit In Fresno
against the railroad. They have se
cured tho services of Hoke Smith and
T. S. Minot, and have won every point
in the litigation up to the present stage.
They are sanguine of success, u.s Hoke
Smith was the man who signed the
patents under President Garfleld, and
on the face of these patents, it is said,
they are void if the land was discov
ered to be mineral benring.
THREE THINGS SHOW
GROWTH OF KINUMAN
KINGMAN, Ariz., July 3.—Perhaps
the best indication of the district's
steady growth is shown by three fea
tures of the week's mining events in
First, the local power plant Is to be
practically doubled; becond. a new 100
--ton mill and cyanide plant are assured
In the Union Pass district; third, the
big mills of the Gold Road and Tom
Reed mines are to be further enlarged.
The increase in the power plant
aside from demonstrating the feasi
bility of electric power in the county
shows the highest faith in the future
development of Mohave county mines.
Word has been received from General
Manager H. N. Tracy of the Desert
Power and Water company of Los An
geles to the effect that he has Just
signed an order for a 1200 horsepower
Nordberg engine as an addition to the
Kingman plant. The present equip
ment with two 650 horsepower engines
furnishes power for the Gold Road and
Tom Reed mines and mills and the
town of Goldroad, Catman and King
man. Tracy states that the addition
was made necessary by the growing
needs of the district and that the work
would be rushed to completion with
all possible spaed.
WILL BREAK GROUND FOR
SMELTER AT TUCSON
TUCSON, July 3.—Attorney A. A.
Worsley, local representative of the
eastern men who will build a smelter
In Tucson, has received a telegram
stating that they will be here August
1 ready for business. This means that
they intend to secure their location and
begin work soon ofter their arrival.
Several weeks ago Mr. Worsley had
word that the smelter men were on
their way west and would probably get
to Tucson right away, but It was
necessary for them to change their
plans. The wire Just received stated
positively that they will be hero August
1 and will come prepared to begin
actual construction work.
A year or two ago a bank located in
a town supported by the farming and
oil districts surrounding it refused ab
solutely to loan i a small amount of
money on oil in a sump. The same
day it loaned $600, taking a band of
hogs as security. Within two weeks,
cholera having broken out among the
bank's securities, every last one of
them was dead of an unpreventable
flux from the bowels. But oil lived,
though the acceptable securities pre
maturely passed away; and this Is a
true story of an intelligent banker's
ability to discriminate between values.

SANTA MARIA, July 3.—The Cob

Pennsylvania in the main field and
directly east of it, is drilling and at
the present time is about 2840 feet deep

MOGOLLON MINES NOW
UNDER ONE CONTROL
Last Chance Acquires by Pur
chase Top Property Rich in
Gold and Silver
SILVER CITY, N. M., July B.— Two of
the richest gold and silver mines in
New Mexico and the southwest were
placed under one management last
week when the Ernestine Mining com
pany, operating the famous Last
Chance mine at Mogollon, took over
from the Top Mining company the Well
known Top mine, which adjoins the
Last Chance. The Ernestine company i
has had an option on the Top for the
last six months, during which time they
have been vigorously prosecuting de
velopment work and have more than
exceeded expectations, until today the
Top has been developed into a mag
nificent mining property. According to
the terms of the sale, the stockholders
of the Top get in exchange for their
stock $350,000 in dividend paying stock
of the Ernestine Mining company. This
stock will be pro-rated among the Top
Stockholders in a few days.
The deal is an advantageous one to
both parties concerned. The Ernestine
company, by adding the Top, will
greatly augment, their ore reserves
while the Top people, besides avoiding
a lot of expensive development work,
are putting their property on a pro
ducing, basis at an economical cost
since It is planned to operate the Top
from the Last Chance workings, thus
saving a big item of expense in sinking
a working shaft.
The consolidation of these two rich
properties will give mining an added
stimulus in the Mogollon district,
which is rapidly coming to the front as
one of the great gold and silver dis
tricts of the country. It means in
creased output and longer life to the
Ernestine operations and increased div
idends to the Ernestine stockholders.. 2
The history of the consolidation is in
teresting. In May, 1909, E. A. Wayne,
tho former manager of the Savanna
Copper company, while on a trip to the
Mogollon district with the Silver City
boosters' excursion, became greatly in
terested in the possibilities of the Top
and its ore formation and acquired an
option on the property.
Seeing the economic advantages re
sulting from a p consolidation of the
Top with the Last Chance mines and
the saving in operating costs, he in
terested E. Craig, president of the
Ernestine Mining company In the
proposition, and the result was an op
tion on the property by the Ernestine
company last December.

"SAUL OF TARSUS'
Bishop Conaty Points to St. Paul
as Greatest Example of
REFORMATION IS WONDERFUL
One of the Mightiest Preachers
the World Ever Knew, De
"Saul of Tarsus" was the .subject of
;iii eloquent sermon yesterday morn
ing at the Cathedral of St. Vlbiana
by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Conaty.
"Saul of Tarsus, otherwise known as
St. Paul, offers one of the greatest
examples of the fur-reaching effects of
divine grace upon the individual life,
As Saul of Tarsus he was the most vin
dictive of all the persecutors of the
Christian! in the apostolic days, but
answering the call of God he became,
as St. Paul, one of the greatest of the
apostles. He was remarkable for his
natural gifts and acquired a reputation
for vast learning. His apostolate was
noted for his absolute devotedness to
the gospel which he had accepted as
his youth had been marked with fidel
ity to all the principles of the Jewish
Hect In which he had been trained. His
life gives us a model of fidelity to the
grace of God, for the keynote of his
success was expressed in his own
words, 'By the grace of God I am what
I am. 1 *
"St. Paul was born in Tarsus in
ClUcia about the beginning of the
Christian era. He received the Hebrew
name of Saul, which after his conver
sion was changed to the Roman name
of Paul. Tarsus, according- to the
apostle, was no mean city, but had a
reputation not only for its mercantile
success, but also because of its great
wealth and the learning of its people.
As St. Paul tells us, he was a Hebrew
of the Hebrews of the tribe of Benja
min and a follower of the Pharisees.
Ho was educated in what was known
us the Sacred Vineyard, as the rabbis
loved to call the sacred schools which
the Jews maintained for the education
of their children. Sent to Jerusalem
to a higher school, ho became the pupil
of the famous Gamaliel, one of the
noted masters of his time, and he there
acquired that wonderful knowledge of
the Old Testament which made him an
enthusiastic defender of the sacred law
and one of the brilliant scholar? of his
day. He gloried in the martyrdom of
St. StephPn, at which he assisted, and
he considered that the death of Ste
phen was an evidence of the triumph
of the true religion. Determined to
devote his life to the persecutlion of
Christianity, and 'breathing naught
but death and slaughter,' he demanded
of the high priest power to seize all
Christians and bring them in chains to
"One of the most Important epochs
in St. Paul's life wns his visit to Greece,
because he brought the doctrine of
Christ face to face -with Grecian cul
ture and scholarship. In the day of
St. Paul Greece was the very center
of civilization and consequently in his
mission to the Gentiles he must have
realized the Importance of presenting
the new doctrine to the intellectual
leaders of Athens, as well as Corinth
and Ephesus. As a youth he had a
marked knowledge of Greek language
and literature and in his school train
ing be had acquired ability for discus
sion. It was particularly in Athens
that he gloried in presenting the new
gospel, for Athens Was the home of
philosophy and the fine arts, and In her
schools were students from many na
IO.I'RTRATION OF MTSRCY
"St. Paul was an illustration of the
mercy of God to man and man's cor
respondence to God's grace. He is one
of the mightiest teachers the world has
ever heard and his lessons are needed
today as much as in the day when he
gave them on Mars' hill, at the Areo
pagus and in the presence of King
Agrippa. He warns the world today,
as he warned the world of his day, that
there is no salvation except in the
name of the Lord Jesus Christ. He
tells the philosophy of today that the
perfection of reason is faith in God
and that divine revelation give 3to rea
son its highest illumination. Human
life has its highest liberty in Christ
and the most complete satisfaction for
the human heart is In the goodness
which the grace of God produces in us.
The cross of Calvary lias redeemed
mankind, and all true liberty is In
Christ, who is the Way and the Truth,
and the Life. St. Paul, the philosopher
apostle, gives us the principles of true
reason and leads us to tne happiness
which is found In union with Christ."

Mrs. H. B. Montgomery Makes
Statement at Interdenomina
tional Missionary School
WOMEN FILL THE AUDITORIUM
"Chivalry of Missions" Is Subject
of the Opening Address in
"The churches do not get sufficient
heroism out of religion to meet the re
quirements of the times," said Mrs. H.
11. Montgomery, well known in mis
sion study work throughout the United
States, yesterday afternoon at the
opening sessions of the Interdenomina
tional Mission Study school for South
ern California in the First Methodist
The church auditorium was well filled
with women an«l a small sprinkling of
men interested in the mission work.
The opening song service was led by
Dr. Eugene Davis. Mrs. R. A. Hadden
conducted the devotional exercises,
which were followed by a solo, "Lead,
Kindly Light," by Mrs. Eugene Davis.
Rev. J. Whitcomb Brougher intro
duced Mrs. Montgomery with remarks
of former friendship.
"The Chivalry of Missions" was the
subject of Mrs. Montgomery. She said
"When we look back into the old age
of the knights of chivalry with the
great acts of bravery described to us,
we sometimes think that the chivalry
of today is very tame, but when we
look at it In the broad sense that it
is conducted in Jhe present time with
all the varied colors thrown out on
the scenes of action, we feel that there
is a large increase of bravery and of
chivalry. When women go 7000 miles
away from home, among strangers and
the heathen, which is being done today,
it calls forth great bravery and chiv
"The hardships of the missionary in
Africa were almost unsurmountable be
fore the railway accommodations. But
the work is being pushed far beyond
in the heathen counttry.
"In our home life there is not enough
present day heroism taught to our
children. We tell them the old worn
out stories about Washington, Lincoln,
William Tell, etc., but we should come
out strong on such heroes as Roosevelt
and others of the present day and im
press the children with important acts

afternoon during the week, omitting

ROOSEVELT IS MODERN
First Unitarian Church Minister
Draws Comparison Between
In speaking of the mixed motives that
enter into our religious and patriotic
sentiments, the Key. B. Stanton Hod
gin of the First Unitarian church in
his sermon yesterday morning on "Pa
triotism and Religion," said:
"It sometimes seems as if we scarce
ly eliminate anything from our nature.
We simply add to it and carry it all
with us. We seem to retain all our
primitive and primeval characteristics
in addition to the refinements we at
tain. They are kept in order usually
by our ideals—our higher natures, but
they are ever waiting to assert them
selves and it is astonishing how read
ily we at times revert back to type.
The lynchings and burnings and mur
ders and innumerable cases of mob
violence that are forever surprising us
show how close to the surface our
primitive traits remain. War ia simply
a reversion back to the savage, and we
cultivate the warlike, savage spirit in
every rising generation and we are
careful to keep it insecurely confined
beneath the surface ready to be
touched off at any moment. The fact
that the eyes of so large a number of
the American people are directed too
wiud Reno, Xev., today, the intense in
terest that can be created in a mere
contest of brute strength between two
half human animals, shows how primi
tive and how much alive the old sav
age is in all of us.
"Ex-President Roosevelt probably has
a greater hold upon a larger number of
people than any man has ever had.
The admiration for Roosevelt is more
genuine and spontaneous, based more
entirely upon a just appreciation of
the real man than any popular hero
has ever before received. We are glad
to recognize him as an idealist, a re
former, one eager to establish justice
between man and man and to promote
the blessings of civilization upon earth.
He is doubtless exeroislng greater pow
er in the right direction than any man
of our time. But that is not the soul
or the chief source of his wonderful
hold upon his fellows. If he were just
Idealist, reformer and lover of his fel
low men only, he would be beloved
only by the hundreds where he is now
adored by the thousands. He gets hold
of people because the aboriginal man,
the sanguinary and the primordial man
is so tremendously alive In him. He
appeals to us because he is the embodi
ment of all that is seeking expression
within us from wild man of the forest
up to the saint and philosopher. He ap
peals to the savage and the untamed
pirate within us as well as to the ideal
ist and the prophet. His inferiority no
less than his superiority is a source of
strength to him. He is to his age what
Charlemagne was to his—the inspired
barbarian. He fastens one hand upon
the earth with the clutch of a savage
and with the other ho reaches for the
stars with his Idealism. As no other
man he reveals us to ourselves. He
frightens us by showing us how prim
itive we are and inspires us by show
ing us how godlike wo may be. His
power will probably be greater while
he is alive and In action than at any

DUTY OF THE NATION
TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY
Dr. Charles E. Locke Delivers Pa
triotic Address Before Big
Dr. Charlei Edward Locke at the
First Methodist Episcopal church
preached an interesting patriotic ser
mon lnst night. His suject was "The
American Nation a Child of Provi
dence: our Old ar.d New Mission.
Text: "Proclaim liberty throughout all
the land unto all the inhabitants there
of." Leviticus 36:10. The sermon had
a unique musical accompaniment. The
national airs of many of the nations
were lung in the native language.
Four Japanese sang the national air of
Japan. The large church was crowded
in every part to overflowing. Dr. Locke
said in part:
"Expansion is not necessarily im
perialism. Our duty to the world is to
proclaim liberty, to give to all the in
habitants thereof our gospel of free
dom; to teach men how to govern
themselves. And, so soon under our
tutelage as the Cuban and Tagal shall
be fitted for self-government, our
America shall surprise the grasping na
tions of the world by her magnanlmoua
treatment of her temporary colonists.
The. God of nations has called us to
this mighty task, and the progeny 01
the pilgrim fathers wili not bo recreant
to the great trusts which they have in
herited and which <:<>d ha» Imposed.
"We must not overlook, in our in
terest In worldwide proclamations of
liberty, our supreme duty to ourselves.
We must maintain and steadily In
crease our integrity and itrength and
personality as a nation. Great nations
die from internal enemies—from strife,
selfishness and corruption. If we shall
fulfill the prophecy of the translated
Brand old man of England we must
be faithful to ourselves: 'America will
one day become what England is today,
the bead steward ill the great house
hold of the world, because her service
will be tho best and the ablest.' We
must remomber that permanent power
is based on service, and is a survival
of the fittest.
"We must proclaim liberty and bring
freedom to men who are slaves of self,
avarice, poverty, appetite and vice. It
is time for this nation to free itself
from the greatest curse which has ever
blighted this republic, compared with
which tho villainies of slavery are not
commensurable. Of course I mean the
drink traffic with all its multitudinous
diabolisms. If the twentieth century,
in its early decades, does not crush this
gigantic octopus our loved land will in
less than another hundred years be
seized with an incurable internecine
"On this Fourth of July I indulge the
hope that the near future shall see
brave men pressing nobly forward for
the solution of every problem which
may threaten our national growth.
"The Ood of nations is calling for
men. Man, this 'precious porcelain of
clay,' who Is 'the glory, jest and riddle
of tho world'; this man who is a 'babe
crying in the night, with no languag«
but a cry'; this weak creature almost
omnipotent when he lays his hand on
God's arm and goes forward to con
