TO GET IX
CHICAGO LAND EXHIBIT.
Realizing the great need and the opportune time for
a large Central Wholesale and Retail Grocery Store for El
Paso and surrounding country, the well known and pro
gressive firms of Franklin Bros, and the Standard Grocery
Co. determined to supply this need. They have been able
to secure a long lease on the large building located at 208,
210 and 212 St. Louis street, which is being remodeled and
turned into a model wholesale and retail grocery house.
This large new store is located on the south side of St.
Louis St., between Mesa Ave. and Stanton St. It is only
one'and one-half blocks east from the transfer station and
the postoffice, one-half block east of the big Banner-Roberts
building, which is in the course, of construction, at the cor
ner of St. Louis St. and Mesa Ave. The opening of this
Jarge grocery house at this location, with other intended
improvements, is destined to make St. Louis street, be
tween Mesa Ave. and Stanton St, one of the best business
blocks in El Paso. The fact that the Franklin Brothers, J.
G. Franklin, Sol Franklin and Geo. G. Franklin, who have
been successful grocerynien from mere boys, are the prop
rietors and have active management of this large grocery
house, is sufficient to prophecy for it a large and growing
business. The Franklin boys come from a family of groc
erynien in Virginia. Their father was a grocer. There
were six boys in the family who were all grocers. Hence,
the slogan, "Franklin Bros. All Grocers.'" The firm will
do business under the style and name of Standard Grocery
Representatives of TIilx State Decided

ixnibition in omcago.
Chicago, 111., Feb. 25. At a meeting
of the representatives of the several
land companies Interested in the de
velopment of Texas, held yesterday at
the Midday club, Chicago, It was de
cided to begin active preparations to
have Texas property represented at the
big land show to be held in Chicago
in November of this year.
Texas was not represented in the last
land show. The men who attended this
meeting believe that much home seek
ers business has been diverted to
other sections through Texas, now
lias on display the,, agricultural
wealth of that state. It was
decided to try to interest the traf
fic commercial clubs of the southern
parts of Texas to have displays of what
can be grown on Texas soil.
In addition to the representatives of
the residents interested in the develop
ment of Texas, the following Texans
attended the meeting: George W. Smith,
L. H. Payne. W. T. McMurray, E. L.
Stratton, C. O. Brown, J. B. Dandridge,
J. E. Hartenbower, Charles Swenson,

JUSTICE HAS A PISTOL
MADE TO HIS ORDER.
Justice Watson is not a collector of
curios, but he has a .44 (caliber double
action revolver, of which there is only
ono duplicate in existence.
In 1873, while he was connected with
the Colorado artillery and stationed in
the northwestern part of the state, he
ordered two pistols made according to
his own ideas by the Winchester peo
ple. The gun is a .44 caliber, double ac
tion, and carries a' "Winchester bullet.
Its mate he traded for a pack horse in
New Mexico, several years after he
secured the two, and does not know
what became of it. He believes that
the Winchester people never made more
than the two revolvers of this kind.

"Steamship Tickets Sold To All Parts of the World"
Douglas, Ariz., Feb. 25. From Chi
huahua, from the City of Mexico, Moc
tesuma and Nacozarl reports have been
pouring- in concerning what is said to
be one of -the most remarkable strikes
in gold and silver made in the long
history of Sonora and her rich geld
mines. The representatives of big In
terests have already been over the
field, although the ground was de
nounced only a little over two months
ago, and though the property is iso
lated. Twenty Miles from Nncorl.
The "Con Virginia," as the new strike
has been called, is situated about 20
miles northeast of the town of Nacorl
and about 47 miles east of the town of
Granados. The latter is the nearest
point to the proposed extension of the
Southern Pacific railroad up the Yaqui
river, now finished as far as Tonichl.
As the situation now stands the near
est railroad station Is Nacozari in Son
ora, or Casas Grandes in the state of
Chihuahua. The property was de
nounced by Carlos C. Soto and his asso
ciates, and various extensions and
parallel claims have been denounced by
many different mining men.
The "Con Virginia" group Is now
owned by a Mexican corporation. Suf
ficient time has not elapsed for the
patenting of the ground, but titles will
be issued In due course.
Vein Snrpr!ej Miner.
The vein which has surprised all the
mining men of Sonora occurs on a dis
linct contact between the volcanic rock
basalt and a quartz porphyry dyke It
strikes about north 25 degrees west
and is apparently vertical. The out
crop is quite prominent, and only the
gigantic width of the vein caused Dros
pector after prospector to pass it by. as
none believed that a vein of 100 feet
in width, as it Is. could carry rich
values, although the vein can be traced
for several miles. In some places the
vein Is exposed on the side of the
basalt, and In one instance it stands as
a cliff 50 feet high.
. The gangue Is quartz, carrying high
values In gold and silver. The silver is
a sulphide, probably argentite, and It Is
thought the sulphruetts, which are
numerous, carry tho gold.
Engineer Clinton C. De Lancey of
Moctezuma drilled holes and blasted
out samples of the vein at various
stages, and the assays proved the rich
ness of the vein. Ten assays were
made In all. A sample taken from the
exposed surface where the exposure
was nearly five feet wide ran 44.4 sil
ver; roughly hand sorted the sample
from the same spot ran 84 ounces of
silver and a little gold. From a point
160 feet south the assay showed 40S
ounces of silver and 2.S gold: a sample
from a shot 20 feet south ran 107 ounces
silver and .02 In gold. Ten feet south
a sample ran 74 ounces of silver and a
trace of gold; roughly sorted showed
110 ounces silver and 1.2" ounces gold.
A ribbon of ore 18 inches wide, seven
feet south ran 301 ounces of silver and
an ounce In gold; roughly sorted this
ran 455.5 ounces silver and an ounce
and a half gold. Samples from a point
still 10 feet further south ran 99 ounces
silver and tailings ran 19 ounces silver.
Ore "Worked by Leaching.
The values are disseminated through
the whole body of the ore, and do not
seem to follow any definite plan. In
dicating one of the largest bodies of
high grade gold and silver yet dis
covered in Sonora. The ore can easily
be worked by a leaching process. The
mountains immediately surrounding the
strike abound in wood and water and
the greatest values are indicated in a
canyon in which there Is a running
stream all the yeararound, being sup
plied by a never failing spring, while
the Guererachi river Is just three miles
to the west. Pine and oak timber for
mining purposes are at hand.
of railroad will be required to place
the mine in a productive shape, on an
economical basis, and abundant capital
for these purposes is said to be on
The tonnage in sight in the Mascott
mine is figured at 500,000, tons of ore,
which averages close to 5 percent cop
per, carrying besides from $1.50 to $7
a ton in gold and from 7 to 20 ounces
silver to the ton, with a heavy iron ex
cess, making the ore especially valuable
and attractive for smelting.
MORE ORE EXCOO'TERED
IN PARADISE DISTRICT
A full face of lead-silver ore has
been encountered In the Rice and Fish
group of mines in -the Paradise district,
Ariz., the strike being made in a tunnel
30 feet long, the ore being of good
quality. The property adjoins the Cum
mins and Shaw and Fink groups.
In the same camp, the Leadville shaft
of the C. & P. company has been tim
