WASHINGTON, Nov. *.-**« Akron
Times on October 15 printed the fol-
rnrrmanv A V. Marsh, secretary,
p?e™se communicate with stockholders'
committee, Washington, D. C.
Behind this llttlo advertisement Hes
a lons story of deep interest to a num
ber of persons in Ohio-how many is
not known, but in Washington the
number is believed to be great. It is
the story of a mining venture which
came to nought and left in its track
many luckless "Investors." ..„,..,
In the spring of 1906 W. 13. Marsh,
who is clerk to the senate committee on
mines and mining und the secretary of
Senator Dick, called on a long list or
his acquaintances in Washington and
explained to them that his brother,
A U. Marsh, had a "goon thing in
Mexico. This brother was a practical
mining man who had made a good deal
of money in the Orovllle gold mining
district of California. He had asso
ciated with him a prominent .mining
engineer, one Alexander Graydon of
Los Angeles. Together they had
formed a company which controlled a
property of wonderful richness in gold
and copper in the Guaynopa district
of Mexico. The riches were in sight
and what was needed was a little
money to buy and install a 100-ton
smelter which had already been con
tracted for. ■
W. B. Marsh's letters, written on the
stationery of the capitol at Washing
ton, were Impressive to many persons.
They were headed: "United States Sen
ate, Committee on Mines and Mining."
and then followed the names of the
committee: "Mr. Dick, chairman; Mr.
Scott, Mr. Heyburn, Mr. Nixon, Mr.
Sutherland, Mr. Guggenheim, Mr. Till
niiin, Mr. Johnston, Mr. Gore, Mr.
Hughes, W. E. Marsh, clerk."
moves TO OHIO
From the headquarters of the Ohio
Republican state executive committee,
Clinton building, High and Chestnut
streets, Columbus, Mr. Marsh wrote on
October 30, 1906, as follows:
"Now that the company's offices and
business have been re-established, with
headquarters at Los Angeles, every
thing in connection with the proposi
tion is moving ahead in good shape,
and despite the delay caused by the
earthquake the development of the
mine itself has been proceeding unin
terruptedly and the erection of the
smelter and equipment of the mine for
active operations will be brought
through In good time, around, or not
long after the first of the year. It is
not overstating the matter to say that
there is every reason to expect that all
will have cause before very long to be
glad that they secured some of this
Stock at the price they have paid
An extract from a letter to stock
holders written on senate paper Pop
tember 26, 1907, follows:
"Barring some unexpected delay,
which though disappointing, is only
temporary, and as all will agree when
certain results are accomplished has
been beneficial rather than detrimental,
developments continue satisfactory,
and It Is expected tc have the mine in
operation and upon a returning basis
around the first of the year."
In a report sent to stockholders by
Marsh under date of May 28, 1907, it
was said that "Approximately 7"0 feet
of tunnel work Is in solid ore": that
"there is now opened up and ready for
the smelter more than 1,000.000 tons of
ore and not one-tenth of the led) is
yet developed"; that "A largo part of
this ore assays more than $100 per ton
In copper alone, exclusive of gold and
silver"; that, "On an adjoining prop
erty quartz has been found assaying
as high as $4000 in gold aloni (200
ounces per ton)" that "A little more
money is needed to complete the equip
ment;" and that "The power plant,
ample for a 1000-ton smelter, and a
100-ton smelter to begin with have
been contracted for and part of this
equipment is now in process of con
Then a great dullne;.-. came over the
bonanza venture. There were no more
letters and no more reports so the
stockholders affirm. Finally the years
went by. Impatient stockholders would
ask questions, but they declare they
could not find out where the mi no was
Bluated, where the offices of the com
pany were, where President Graydon
was or where Secretary A. V Marsh
was, tlthoUfrh it was said W. E. Marsh
told a few chosen stockholders that his
brother had gone into the organization
of a bigger company c .lied thn Plio
shone Gold Dredging com] any, with
rich placer claims on the Wind river
in the Shoahone Indian reservation,
which is in Fremont county, Wyo.
Stockholders grew more Impatient.
They wrote to various Mexican gov
eminent officials, but they answered
that they had no record of such a com
pany as the Mexican Gold-Copper com
pany. Enrique Creel, governor of Hie
; tate of Chihuahua (the state In which
the mine was believed to be located)
wrote that there was no record of
such a company. The secretary of
ptato for Arizona, whore the company
■was incorporated, wrote that nothing
liad been heard of it since the incor
poration fee had been paid. A large
number of mining engineer* li Los
Angeles were written to, but they
had never heard of • Iraydon or his

STANDARD BRINGS IN
GUSHER IN MIDWAY
Drillers Enter a Gas Pocket at
1500 Feet-Oil Shoots
High Over Derrick
BAKERSFIELD, Nov. 2.—The entire
Midway Bold was thrown Into great
i excitement Monday by the strike of the
! Standard Oil company on section 26, |
31-23, bringing 1 in a great gusher in one
of the wells now drilling, which sent
oil, water and mud 300 feet into the air
for two hours. The great sight was
visible from Taft, and people through
i out the district were out with Held
glasses and telescopes to get a clearer
view of the spectacle,
i From accounts from the field late
j this afternoon it appears that a gas-
I pocket was entered at 1500 feet with
I the above result. It has not been de- i
| t. rmined yet In what quantity the oil I
I is present, but a great quantity of the i
black fluid was thrown out this morn
ing. The recent strikes of the com
panies on sections 14 and 28, 31-24, in
1 the Elk Hills, together with the strike
, of the Standard, only adds to the pro
ducing belt or the wonderful Midway
and proves beyond a doubt that the
whole territory from the ridge of the
: Elk hills to the Midway valley is oil
The California Midway Oil company,
section 32, 31-23, has gone into the sand
with another well, and from all reports
it looks like another gusher. There is
a heavy gas pressure and oil is coming
up through the drilling water.
The Honolulu Consolidated on section
4, 81-23, in the Elk hills, has another
big gas well on the north half of the
section. Recently a similar well was
brought in on the south half. The roar
of the new well can be hoard for miles.
It has not been capped.

WORD FROM TEXAS
Last spring one of the stockhold
ers in Washington got in communica
tion with Dr. Phillips, the state geolo
| gist of Texas, who had just made a trip
' 1 through the Guaynopa district. He
i thought that R. A. Walker or Charles
B. Starkey of Colon la Juarez, Chihua
hua, would probably know something
about such a company. They did. And
right here the real trouble of the story
begins. Starkey and a partner, B. L.
I ('rod', wanted to find the officers of the
Mexican Gold-Copper Mining company
j —particularly President Graydon. The
correspondence with these men and
with others in that neighborhood Is
Starkey'B letter was in part:
"About four years ago E. li. Croff
! and Edmund Richardson, who are my
! present associates, and myself entered
I into a deal with Graydon for a mining
claim called the 'Utah,' under an
agreement, lie. Qraydon, to pay us a
certain sum of money and a block of
capital stock outside of a 1.000,000 share
I treasury fund. At that time Graydon
had interested Rome parties in Califor
: nia and later got Marsh Interested, We
let them have full sway, subject only
to business agreements, which were
placed in bank. These men did not
! keep their agreements with us in any
part and after many extensions of six
months or more each, granting to
them every concession asked of us;
then they finally dropped out of Bight,
leaving us and many others. I believe,
to hold the sack. They paid very lit
tle money on the mining end and we
j carried some of their pay foils and
1 furnished supplies from our camp
■ alongside, over $1500 United States cur
rency still unpaid.
"Graydon also left a man In charge
(H. Muller) and this man had some
$2000 Mexican currency still due.him In
wages. He was finally induced to
bring suit, which he did. against Gray
don. and instead of selling Chattels only
_to satisfy his claim, sold the laud and
all. The sale of the land cannot pos
sibly hold good, but still it has cast d
cloud on the title for the present."
The letters that conic up from the
Mexican owners of thai land seem
funny in the light of the stories At
the millions of tons of ore at $100 a ton
that were in Blught. The Mexican
owners do not appear to know anything
about the power plant for running a
1000-ton smelter and they do not seem
to know anything even about the tem
porary 100-ton smelter that was in
course of construtcion in 1907.
The stockholders are holding meet-
Ings and having big laughs at their
childish faith and the ease with which
they gave up their money, but with
many persons in Washington and it is
feared In Ohio It has been a serious ox
perience, Instances having come to light
where husband and wife put their sav
ings of years Into this mining venture,
The Washington stockholders, or at
least a number of them, have been
trying to find the Ohio stockhalders,
because it Is believed that they are
still in the dark as to where those
millions of tons of $100 ore are lo

PYRAMID SANTA PAULA
NO. 2 IS 200 BARREL
Unusual Production Manifests
Itself at 1800 Feet-Steady
Output Is Assured
The Pyramid Oil company's No. 2
well on its Banta Paula property, after
! several days' test, has shown itself to
' be a steady producer of 2 barrels a
day of high gravity oil. The well was
finished a I a depth of 1800 feet after
penetrating almost MOO feet of con
tinuous oil sand, some par;s of which
carrli d a very heavy flow of gas; strong
enough at times, to throw the oil and
water that was in the hole up over the
top of the derrick.
This is a quite unusual production
and showing for the Santa Paula dis-
I trict, and assures the Pyramid cojji-
I pany a substantial production from
this i roperty for the future.
Wells Nos. 1 and 2 on the Pyramid's
Prosperity property in the Kern river
field were cemented off about a week
ago. This is the second cementing job
on No. 1, the first trial not having
provefl successful. These wells will be
drilled in within the next week. The
usual production of this part of the
Kern liver field, of from forty to sixty
I barrels per day, is expected.

WASHINTON, Nov. :.—A notable de

Netherlands is contemplated by the
present sesslou of the states general,

the department of commerce and labor
from Minister Beaupre. The present
tariff act, wtih the exception of a few
amendments, dates back to J862, and
the rates of duty hnve been conspicu
ously low. The budget for 1911, howev
er, as reported to the second chamber
of the states general on September 20
last, emphasized the considerable and
increasing deficit of recent years, and
the financial situation brought forth
an announcement from Queen Wilhel

that a bill relating to the revision of
the tariff would shortly be presented by
For the ensuing year the government
Intend! to derive large revenues from
temporary measures, now in operation,
Imposing a surtax on private incomes
and an excise duty .on spirits. Besides
the departmental appropriations men-1
tinned in the budget, the outlay for the
fiscal year will be augmented by large
expenditures contemplated in bills for
the insurance of workinermen against
pecuniary loss from infirmity of old age
or accidents, and in bills comprehend
ing a plan for the construction and
maintenance of coast defenses. The
latter proposes an expenditure of $16,-
