ni MINE OF
The Ancients "Worshiped the
Stone Miner Has Large
Charles H. Beer, a mining engineer of
New York, but who is well known in
El Paso, has found a mine which he
states contains one of the most valu
able and curious gems in the world.
Among the ancient Mexicans the stone
was called 'chalchihuitl, pronounced
chal-che-we-tal. He exhibited a collec
tion of marvelously beautiful polished
gems, in which the outlines of the sun
and the beetle are plainly marked In
the azure of the translucent stone. Mr.
Beer is now in Mexico at the mine, the
location of which he will not divulge,
but he left over the Mexico Northwest
"You will find in the history of the
conquest of Mexico," said Mr. Beer be
fore leaving, "that the ambassadors of
Moctezuma brought to Cortez among
other valuable presents, four gems
which they called chalchihuitl, and told
him that each gem was worth more
than a load (240 pounds) of gold. The
historian describes the gem as being
translucent, of a beautiful greenish
blue, streaked with white It was more
highly esteemed and considered of more
value than diamonds, rubles or emer
alds. The ancient Mexicans were sun
worshippers, and some of the gem ma
terial shows a wonderful resemblance
to the rays of the morning sun. Soma
of these gems also show the form
and shape of a beetle, as if photograph
ed in the heart of the stone."
Dr. Alfred Free, America's highest au
thority on precious stones, states: "The
gem called chalchihuital is of the most
beautiful blue color mottled with
white," and adds that Mr. Beer's gems
fit the description.
"The color," he says, "is of a most
beautiful translucent blue, unlike any
other known gem. It is the blue of the
summer's sky after rain, and the flakes
of white are like the fleecy white clouds
that remain in the sky after the rain
has passed. It is wonderfully beauti
ful." Dr. Free has made several analyses
of the gems found by Mr. Beer, and
reports that it is a combination of
j zinc, nicKel, -copper, tin, manganese ana
1 phosphorous, and he gives it theyscien-
Itific name "naturalite." It is found
occurring in kidneys or nuggets in the
vein matrix of a porphyritic country
rock in the Sierra Madres.
Mr. Beer states he is at present sup
plying the museums and cabinets of
colleges in this country and Europe
with specimens. On the present trip
into Mexico, he expects to bring back
a rare collection for Dr. Oliver Cum
mingsFarrlngton, curator of geology
at the Field Columbian museum of Chi
cago. He has testimonials from Dr.
Max Bauer and Dr. Alfred Eppler, emi
nent German experts on precious stones.
Mr. Beer also owns the Ysabelita
and Amelia mines In the San Pedro
district, as well as mines in Granite
gap. New Mexico, which are profit
able, but he states his mine of gems
nets more money, the stones bringing
from 1 to 20 per carat. v
IN THE COUNTEY
United States Government
Makes Report on 1909
"Washington, D. C, June 27. Coal
mine fatalities in the United States in
1909 were fewer than in 1908, notwith
standing an increase of approximately
10 percent in the quantity of coal
mined. The figures compiled by Ed
ward TV. Parker, statistician in charge,
division of mineral resources. United
States geological survey, show the total
number of deaths from coal mine acci
dents In 1909 to have been 2412, against
2450 in the preceding year.
Decrease In FatnlltieA In 1009.
The decrease in the number of fatal
accidents during 1909 is all the more
gratifying from the fact that in the
statistics for last year are represented
four states Georgia, Oregan, Texas and
"Virignla from which no reports of ac
cidents had previously i been received.
The statistics for these states were
compiled from reports received by the
geological survey from the operators.
The number of men killed in 1909 in
these four states was 34, which makes
the showing for 1909 still more favor
able. Increase In Nonfatal Accidents.
In the number of nonfatal accidents
the record for 1909 does not compare
so favorably with those of previous
years as do the statistics of fatalities.
The number of men injured last year
reached the unprecedented total of 7979,
an increase of more than 1200 over 1908,
and 1908 showed an Increase in non
fatal accidents of more than 1400 over
Cannes of Accidents.
For the industry as a whole the num
ber of victims of fire and explosion
Is comparatively few. The greatest
danger to which the miner is exposed
is that from falls of roof and coal.
and this danger Is materially increased
from the weakening of the roof and
the shattering of the coal left as sup
porting pillars when excessive charges
of powder are used. In 1909 out of
the 2412 men killed 1191, or 45 percent,
were victims of falls of roof or coal,
and of the 7979 nonfatal injuries 3280
or 40 percent, were due to this cause.
Only 14 percent of the deaths and less
than 5 percent of the injuries were
due to explosions of dust or gas, or
combinations of the two.
Tn tTrta 1 ?v vpnra frnm ICQ?; tn IQrtQ I
inclusive, there were in New Mexico,
according to Jo E. Sheridan, territorial
mine inspector, a total of 223 fatal acci
dents. The law does not require the
reporting of nonfatal accidents. Dur
ing the 15 years there have been only
four, 1895, 1899 1901 and 1907, in
which there were any deaths charged to
explosions of gas or dust. The total
number of deaths from this cause was
43, and 24 of these occurred in 1S95,
so that in 14 years only 19 deaths have
been caused by explosions. Falls of
roof and coal killed 108. In 1909 there
were 13 fatal accidents, a decrease of
10 as compared with 190S.
RICH PROPERTY IN
The Mexicana Mine Has
Some Yerv Fine High
Charles C. Seawell, a mining engineer
of Chihuahua, Is here returning from
Sonora, where he made an expert ex
amination of the Mexicana mine, in the
Nacozari district, foi the owner, Juan
Maria Salazar, of Chihuahua, who pur
chased the property some four months
ago from David Rosa. The property
is one of the new discoveries made In
that country since the advent of rail
roads, and goes to prove that the an
tiguas are not the only mining proper
ties that exist in that marvelous coun
try. "About four years ago David Rosa
discovered the property, and "without
any means he has developed it exten
sively, milling the ores with nothing
but a little 'burro arrastre not big
ger than a wash tub, not only paying
all expenses of tne development, but
supporting his large family meanwhile
in comfort," said Mr. Seawell. "Mr.
Salazar, who had been looking for a
mine for many years, hearing of it,
visited it and at once bought it, pay
ing $50,000 for it. It is developed
now to a depth of 110 feet by shafts,
drifts and crosscuts, and now Mr. Sala
zar is running a crosscut tunnel, al
ready in 115 feet, uith only 85 feet
more to run, which will cut the lode
at the depth of 250 feet. It is a great
"The distinctive character of the
property is a large dike or lode of
quartz coursing northwest and south
east through a porphyry country
rock. Two rich veins average five
ounces gold and 14 to 20 'ounces silver
per ton, and the values are increasing
with depth. The ore is quartz and for
this reason being in demand at the
Douglas smelters, is treated free, and
Mr. Salazar is shipping right along:
But the most remarkable thing about
the property is the fact that the entire
quartz lode or dike between these
two veins, 60 feet wide, is a gold bear
ing vein that will afford an enormous
tonnage for a mill in the future.
As a proof of this, Mr. Salazar has
found in the gulches below this dike
vein huge boulders of the same quartz
showing free gold. The property is
only 10 miles east of Nacozari, the
present railway terminus.
"By the way, my visit to Nacozari
was a revelation of the wonderful prog
ress making in the west coast. Thirty
years ago, just after I graduated from
a mining school, John H. Bostwick,
one of the bonanza crowd of the Corn
stock mines of Nevada, an old friend
of my father's, employed me to go
there to examine the copper resources
of that district. I then met him In
Tombstone and had to make the jour
ney muleback through a country badly
infested by the Apaches. There were
no Inhabitants there then and my ho
tel was under the shade of a tree. Now
there Is a city and one of the great
est copper mines in Mexico. The trans
formation is truly wonderful."

city, leaving several years ago for, Chi

Success of Q,nenner Machines Makes
Operations Profitable; 3Inny Min

Nogales, Son., Mex., June 27. It Is
believed that the coming fall will see
great activity in the Altar district of
Sonora. The majori-ty of those who de
nounced dry placers following the news
of the success of the Quenner crushing
machines in the handling of the cement
ed gravel of that region are just now
awaiting the issuance of titles by the
Mexican government. Under the new
mining law of Mexico it Is not possible
to work claims until titles are obtained.
Ten of the Quenner machines are be
ing built in the shops of Roy & Titcomb
here, for the American Ore Milling com
pany, the American concern that owns
a 70 percent interest In the Quenner
patent. This company is now operating
a Quenner plant at placer holdings near
Boludo. The placer leae in the Boludo
section formerly worked by Mitts Quen
ner, the inventor, and the machine in
stalled there, were purchased some time
ago by Jose Monteverde, who is oper
ating it. In the same territory Charles
H. Peck and J. E. Suits & Co. have
Quenner plants, and there is a plant at
placers nine miles east of Llano, held
by Uawton B. Garside. At placers five
miles west of Llano, Capt. George D.

American interests to work placers in
the Barranca district of Sonora. The
town is San Antonio, founded early in
the eighteenth century and now hav

The San Antonio placers were suc
cessfully worked during colonial days,

into the millions. The gold is found
along a former channel of the Yaqui
river and in gulches extending into it
from the mountains. The Spaniards
worked down the gulches from the hills
until stopped by the underground flow
of the Yaqui, there existing at that time
no facilities for the handling of the
water. The placers are now being pros

prospecting is to be continued until
