TALKS OF OLD
SAYS MANY SAVINGS IN OPERA
TION COSTS HAVE BEEN
ORE RESERVES SHOW GROWTH
WITH BETTER COPPER PRICES
OLD DOMINION WILL IN
President Charles Sumner Smith of
the Old Dominion Copper Mining &
bmelting company arrived in this city
Sunday niglit trom Boston, where he
makes Ins headquarters, and will spend
a few days in Globe looking over con
I'ditioi.s at the Old Dominion plant and
'la the district as well.
In an interview with the Silver Belt
last jiight, President Smith said that he
.'cuitsideis that conditions in the district
are as promising as can be tound in any
other section of tho country ahd bet
ter than they are iu tlie majority of
places. While it is true, us in all mini
ing regions, that not all the mines where
development work is now being doiie
will turn out to be producers, Mr. Smith
considers it a i.ue statement to say
that at least halt of'them will eventual
ly become producers on a paying scale.
In speaking of piesent conditions at
the Old Dominion plant and mines, Mr.
Smith said tiiat the cost of running
has been considerably reduced there iu
tho past lew years by tlie introduc
tion of a more 'economical system of
mining. Whereas before crosscuts wcro
run lor long distances to cut the ore
f bodies, and had to be kept permanently
timbered, the system of working has
now been changed so that the drifts
follow the footwall, ami lrom these
drifts the crosscuts are ruu to the ore
eias. In most cases the distauco to
the vein is short and when ore extrac
tion is completed in a ciosscut, it is
filled up with waste material and left
alone. In this way the great amount
of timbering formerly necessary is elim
inated. Another decrease in running expense
will soon be effect.-1 by the opening for
use of the drainage itinuel which has
been driven trom me C shaft to the A
sLuft and will noW be Used for drain
'age purposes beginning Friday. Form
erly, the water from the lower levels
has been pumped into a tank at the
surface, but from now on, it will be
raised to the mouth of the inclined tun
nel and allowed to tlow out. In this
way a laise qf 200 feet for the water
will be avoided, iu the near future.
Powertul Nordberg pumps will be in
stalled by the first of the next year.
Largo Ore Reserves
President Smith says that the ore re
serves in the Old Dominion mines are
good and that now the opening up of
these is so far advanced that a .large
part of the expense of running formerly
incurred by the continuance of this
woik will bo done away with in the
future.' Moreover, the building in con
nection with the plant, which was form
oil v a great diain on the company's
f treasury is now completed, so that here,
too. another item of expense is cut off.
The cutting down of expenses in tho
management of the mines does not
mean, however that any smaller force
is needed and to tho contrary, the num
ber of men has been increased Homo
what during the latter part of the sum
mer. The mines have vast reserves
and an inciease of production will re
sult as soon as the prico of copper jus
tifies it. The present average price of
13 ct'nts can hardly be considered as
anything approaching the phenomenal
anil greater production on tho pait of
different companies simply results in
a greater supply for the market with
the ever present possibility of a drop
in priee. Tho indications are good,
however, for better mniket values dur
ing the coming fall and Mr. Smith says
that if such is the caso an increase of
force and consequently of production
at the Old Dominion mines will prob
President Smith is accompanied here
by his brother, .1. W. Smith, chief engi
leer of the New York water supply,

reservoir to collect additional data in
connection with his work. - ,
