The Panic of 1907
Reckless extravagance in every shape, form, and manner was at
the bottom of the panic of 1907.
And the reason the panic was neither so widespread nor so long
as that of 1903, was because America had more put away for the rainy
day than ever before in the history of the country.
As a rule, we had more money saved up, more of us owned our
homes, more of us owned a little land.
, We were all in better shape to live for months 'without working.

Washington, I. C., April 20. The in
creasing interest in the mineral prod
ucts of the western states, especially
those lying- in or west of what may be
broadly termed the Rocky llountain re
gion, is reflected in the large measure
of attention given to that region by the
geological survey, which for several
years has issued, under the title, "Con
tributions to Economic Geology," an
nual volumes devoted largely to the
mineral resources of that part of the
The latest volume of this series
(bulletin 380) contains a number of val

and iron in New Mexico; wolframite and
marble in Arizona; and other lesser de

The lead deposits at Tres Kermanas,
in southern New Mexico, have been
known for many ears and have yielded
about $200,000 worth of metal. In 1901

and shipments were made to smelters.
There are also indications of copper In
The mines of the Hanover district, n
Grant county, X. M., have yielded over
a million tons of iron in the 10 years
since they were opened. Both hard and
soft ores have been extensively worked,
but the principal ore is magnetite. The
output of the district is steadily in
creasing year by year.
Wolframite is an ore of tungsten and
is valuable in. proportion to its rarity.
The deposits in Arizona are in Cochise
county. Those that have been found
have been pretty well worked out, but
others probably exist. The ores lie in

Cole and Jos. B. Cotton, is to examine
the Santa Brigida gold mine, not far
from Ocampo, -with a view to its pur
chase. The mine is owned principally
by Norval B. Welsh, of San Antonio,
Tex., and Luke Lanahan, who Is in
charge and operating in a small way.
The Santa Brigida is a well developed
propertj-, most of the work having been
done by Col. "W. C. Greene, of Cananea,
when he was operating his now defunct
Greene Gold-Silver company. This is
one of 114 mines which he claimed for
that $25,000,000 concern, but it was
found that with very rare exceptions,
few were paid for. He spent consider
able money developing the Sta. Brigida
mine under the superintendence of Nor
val Welsh. When Greene lost it on ac
count of failure to make the payments
on the purchase price, Mr. Welsh and
associates, as owners, got the benefit
of the work.
The Sierra Consolidated Mines com
pany is developing a large group of
mines at Ocampo, formerly held by the
Greene Gold-Silver company.

it. in a northerly and southerly direction,
the main vein of the Lucky TIgre mine
runs a lineal distance of 32S0 feet.
"We have been doing nothing since
acquiring the properties except devel
opment and have done up to date
about 3000 feet of work, in tunnels and
connecting upraise. We have run in
t this manner four different tunnels.
"The tunnels are connected every 200

which gives us perfect ventilation. De
