AVILL. DEVELOP QUIJOTA
PLACERS WEST OF TUCSON.
The Quijota placers, 60 miles west of '
Tucson, have been known for years to !
be rich, but like those of Altar, In i
Sonora, the gold was included In a for- i
matlon which turned into cement In
water. There is said to be six to eight
thousand acres of placer ground run
ning in values from $3 to $10 gold per
cubic yard. Judge Day of Tucson has
been operating there and during the
p?st five years has been panning around
the grass tracts taking out $2000 and
upward a year. One year he made $20,
000, and last year he panned out $5000.
The claim owners are going to put in
the Queuner machines and claim that
the Quijota placers will beat the record
of the Altar placers.

MIXING AND OIL ZVEWS.
Greatest Exhibits Are in
Russia Mexico (rusher
In parts of California considerable de
posits of oil residue, "brea" or asphalt,
says Mining: Science, testify to the es
ecape of great volumes of oil from the
earth, but It is in Russia, Burma and
the east and West Indies that the great
est exhibits of natural phenomena may
be seen. Around the Baku fields of
Russia, fields of asphalt are to be
Tvere preforated in a few hours. The
casing- v,as often torn to shreds and
collapsed, and, owing to the immense
amount of sand discharged, large bodies
of workmen were employed to direct the
rivers of oil to surface depressions for
temporary storage. For miles around,
the roar of escaping gas could be heard,
and the earth quivered as masses of
sand forced into the casing momentar
ily checked the flow and were expelled.
3,000,000 Han-els of Oil.
At Tampico, Mexico, in 190S, a well
yielded 3,000,000 barrels of oil in two
months. The eruption was so violent
that the earth was shattered for a wide
radius around, and eventually a great
seething crater with an area of 25 acres
was formed, into which the derrick and
machinery disappeared. The well event
ually turned to sulphur water, which
has since flowed from this crater. Two

heavy fluid may be watched in many 1 minion tons of solid matter were ejeect
localities. "Where no moist clay covers ed from the -well
the bed, great outbursts of gas, some
times accompanied by oil, occur, and
numerous holes sufficiently large to
admit the body of a man are opened.
In the "West Indies for miles in the
tropical jungles along the crests of
anti-clines may be observed both heavy
oil and gas steadily issuing from the
earth, forming cones of asphalt mixed
"with earthly matter.
Inflnmable Gases Issue.
Exceptional activity is displayed dur
ing earthquakes in such localities. In
an earthquake In the Caucausus in 1902
inflamable gases emerged from fissures
in the earth, and becoming ignited,
greatly added to the terror of the sit
uation. In the Arakan Island on the
coast of Burma, the mud volcanoes de
velop great activity at periods of
earthquakes. Similar eruptions occur
beneath the sea, where inclined oil
strata are submerged. In the Caspian
sea great volumes of escaping gas
agitate the -water sufficiently to cap
size small boats. Off the coasts of
Borneo, Burma and in the Caspian, suf
ficient argillaceous matter has been
ejected from the bottom of the sea to
form temporary islands.
The Baku Field Discovery.
Occasionally gas alone Is expelled at
a pressure which defies all measures to
control It, as in Borneo, where mil
lions of cubic feet were discharged
daily for a-long period. The-most won
derful discharges of oil and gas were
In the early days of the Baku oil field;
one well in 1898 produced 117,000 bar

ejected with' such impetuosity and ac
companied by so much sand that steel

RICH GOLD MINE FOUND IN
DAVIS MOUNTAINS, TEXAS.
Silas King, a ranch and cattleman of
Kent, Texas, who went to Casas Gran
des, Mex., Wednesday to purchase a
bunch of cattle, states-that a party of
Toyah people have discovered a very
rich gold mine. They have for some
time been developing It and have al
ready sunk a shaft down on the vein
75 feet, which shows rich gold all the
way down. The mine is located under
the Texas mining law, and I-s situated in
Gomez peak, in the Davis mountains,
just over the line of El Paso county in
Jeff Davis county, eight miles south
east of Kent.
The Davis mountains have always
been regarded as favorable in geologi
cal formation for carrying mineral, and
tradition among the Apaches of the
MescaWo band was to the effect that
there are very rich gold placers In that

mines, having made a shipment of high
grade gold ore to the American Smelt

and also ome bullion, which, was sent
to the mint at San Francisco by ex

and southwest, consisting of quartz and
mica schist, and Is from one to four
meters in width. The values are from
five grains up to as high as seven
kilos gold per ton. Avith very little

the water level.
Deepest Shaft Only 100 Feet.
There are about 800 feet of develop

deepest shaft being 100 feet. There Is
a 10-stamp mill on the property, first

present it is idle on account of lack
of water. The company is composed
of El Paso, New York and Michigan
people. X. C. Thompson, of El Paso,

Mr. Kahn has organized a company

POSSESSION AND WORK ML ST
HE DONE TO HOLD OIL LAND.
Where an oil claim was located and
the boundaries marked but no discov
ery was made, and a cabin constructed
but was unoccupied, but no drilling or
actual development work prosecuted the
land was held subject to re-location.
Mere posting of a notice and mark
ing boundaries on an oil claim will not
exclude others from a peaceable entry
where the first locator had made no
discovery and had not retained pos
session and prosecuted the work.
Failure of the locator to discover oil
and a failure to prosecute the work,
was held fatal to the validity of the
location made under the oil placer act.
