Mark on the Gem Shaft.
With the fuel situation somewhat bet

beginning to assume their former nro-
portions, although" at no time since the
tuei lamme became prevalent in tho
southwest has the general progress of
tho camp suffered a setback. On the
contrary, cessation of active operations
for a short time among some of the
producing mines has presented an op
portunity for those engaged in Arizona's
principal industry in this vicinitv to
look about them and see what others
Smelter Output for January
Tie shortage of coke, which caused
temporary embarrassment at the Old
Dominion smelter, has been remedied
and Superintendent Howard and his
able corps of assistants arc' putting
forth every effort to finish the month
with a good run. Coke has been arriv
ing daily since the 17th and no further
shortage is expected. The output this
month, however, will bo considerably
lower than the December output, owing
to the fact that for the first two weeks
of the present month the furnaces at
the smelter were run spasmodically,
only as coke arrived, and it was not
until the 17th that all four furnaces
were again placed in commission.
It is estimated that the output for
this month will be about 1,700,000
The "oil famine, which has been felt
severely at the Arizona Commercial, has
been relieved, the first tank car arriv
ing yesterday, and more is expected
dailj-. Operations at tho Copper Hill
for the last month have been of a re
pair nature owing to the fuel shortage
and the same may bo said of tho Black
hawk mine 6f tho company. Active
mining operations will begin this weok
at both mines with a full force of men.
An important event in the district
was the completion last week of the
Arizona Commercial railroad as far as
the Copper Hill mine and the shipment
of the first car 6f ore to the Old Do
minion smelter by this means of trans
portation. Manager Snell states that
the road will bo entirely completed
within a week or ten days and then
shipments on a large scale will begin
from the Blackhawk mine, the Copper
Hill and from the open cuts, from which
is being taken the finest converter lin
ing in the southwest.
Q. V. a. & N. Extension
The extension of. the Gila Valley,
Globe & Northern railroad to the lower
Pinto creek section, which was an
nounced during the last week, is of
utmost importance to the mining indus
try of that section. In the beginning
the greatest benefits of this extension
will accrue to the Mitchell Mining com-,
pany, as the smelter of the company,
now in course of construction three aid
one-half miles from the city, will bo
the first point reached by the road.
The grading has been going on under
the direction of Superintendent Britt of
the Mitchell company and the railroad
company will havo to do little except
lay ties and steel. Tho foundations for
the smelter have been completed and
much of the necessary machinery is on
the ground. It is believed that tho
smelter will be in operation before
spring opens. The Mitchell company
and the Cananea &. Globe company, un
der the same management, havo pur
chased considerable machinery for their
various mines in the district and they
are certain to be an important factor
in tho growth of the district.
Considerable attention has been di
rected to the Globe Consolidated during
