TIIE REAL REASON
The Bulletin last week expressed a
wish that Bowio would draw n prizo
in tho shape of division headquartors
on tho main lino. It appears now that
thoro is a possibility of something liko
that materializing soon. All western
roads are adopting tho policy of short
ening their freight divisions and in
following out that plan it is stated that
tho Southorn Pacific will establish threo
.divisions between El Paso and Tucson
instead of two. Tho division towns
would naturally bo Doming and Bowio,
as both have tho advantago of good
vatnr. Tho current rumor is that this
chango is to bo made, but whothor thoro
is a foundation for tho rumor tho Bul
letin cannot undertako to say. Solo
Tho Bulletin's wish is, to say tho
least, unselfish, and its bcliof that
Bowio is to bo mado a. division point is
perhaps well founded, but it modestly
refrains from taking legitimato credit
for tho proposed change. As a mattor
become a division
purely on account of
tho wondorful dovelopmont and growth
of tho valley and tho towns therein and
the monstrous forward strides Globo has
Thcro is no line in tho Randolph sys
tem of Arizona railroads doing one-half
the business that has been dono by tho
Gila Valley, Globo & Northern rail
road during tho past eighteen months or
two years. This business is tho result
of valley development and prosperity,
more particularly as it pertains to tho
farms rather than tho towns, but tho
latter have not been going backward,
by any means; and tho Silver Belt looks
for a genuino boom in such towns as
Pima, Thatcher, Safford and Solomon
ville, during tho next year, as a result
(jofnet, if Howio isto
1 diirt, it will bo pure
of this wondorful prosperity of tho
ranchers of that section.
And Globo has attained during tho
past twq years tho proud distinction of
mining metropolis of tho entire south
west. Tho city's growth 1ms been mar
velous magical, and with tho wonder
ful development of its .mines, mills and
smelter has practically kopt the rails
hot between this city and Bowio pulling
in building materials, machinery, fuel
and general supplies. In fact, it has
at times overtaxed tho carrying capac
ity of tho road and has sufYorcd exten
sively for tho want of mntorial and sup
plies. All of this business must bo handled
at Bowie, both incoming and outgoing,
and for that reason thoro is nioro than
a guessing chanco that tho quiet littlo
town will soonor or later become an
important division point. Such an ar
rangement would not only provo profit
able to tho railroad, but would greatly
facilitate freight mnttors all along tho
lino of tho Valloy road and provont
congestion in tho El Paso and Tucson
yards, such as lmvo occurred during
tho past year.
COPPERS PAY HANDSOMELY
A writer on copper and coppor stocks
says tho prcsont depression is hard for
investors in stocks nnd tho coppor busi
ncss gouorally, but this is tho ponnlty
wo always lmvo to pay for overdoing
things. Tho renction wo nro now fool
ing tho effects of is no more abnormal
than tho recont high price lovol was.
Meanwhile, it is well to look on tho
bright sido of tjio situation and to bear
in mind that tho leading companies will
eontinuo to pay dividonds although on
a reduced scalo until tho market rights
During tho nino months ending with
September, according to n careful com
pilation by tho Mining "World, ono hun
dred and twolvo motnl mines and works
in tho United States declared dividends
aggregating tho largo total of $71,914,
200. Since incorporation these proper
ties have paid in all $54G,SS5,G72 in
dividends on an issued capitalization of
$001,318,405. In other words, they have
roturned to date nearly 90 per cent of
their outstanding capitalization.
And remember theso hugo profits do
not include tho dividends announced by
the Amalgamated Copper, Coppor Rango
Consolidated, American Smelters Securi
ties and other largo corporations, which
derivo their earnings from shares held
in mines and metallurgical plants. Six
of theso securities holding organiza
tions, having an issued capitalization of,
$242,726,000, declared dividends so far
this year of $14,23S,812, making tho
total since organization, $GS,951,381. .
Another source of profit is tho com
mission on tho sales of motals. Tho
United Motals Selling company, which
markets tho product of tho Amalgam
ated' Coppor company nnd several othor
concoms, deelnrcd dividonds during tho
yenr amounting to $2,750,000, making a
total of $0,250,000 on $5,000,000 capital
slnco organization in January, 1900.
Largo dividonds havo nlso been paid
by numerous private and close corpora
tions, which do not mnko any public
Tho dividend record is hold by tho
Calumet & Ilccln mines, which has dis
tributed so far this year $5,500,000,
mrtking tho total Binco organization
$104,850,000 on a capitalization of only
$2,500,000. Tho $25 pnr valuo shares
lmvo sold as high ns $1,000; tho high
record prico inndo this year, but at tho
present tinio thoy stand nt $010, owing
to the recent change in coppor condi
tions and tho deduction in tho qunrtorly
dividond rato from $20 por sharo to
$15 which resulted. But it is well to
know that ovon at $010 por sharo tho
stock now yields 9V6 por cent.
It will bo seen from tho abovo fig
ures what enormous profits thoro uro in
tho mining industry, and when wo stop
to consider that these tremendous earn
ings aro tho results of operations
through good nnd bad periods, through
the period, for instance, when coppor
was soiling nt 11 cents, wo must como
to tho conclusion that in tho long run
investments in copper stocks pay hnnd-somoly.
