I HO is she?" asked Emerson.
"You heard, didn't you?
She's Miss Malotte, and she's
certainly some considerable
lady," answered the crook.
Tes, but who is she? What does
this mean?' Emerson pointed to the
provisions and fittings about them.
"What is she doing here alone?'
"Maybe you'd better ask her your
elt" said Fraser.
For the first time in their brief ac
maintance Emerson detected a strange
ote in the rogue's voice.
The Indian girl summoned them, and
hey followed her through the long
jassageway into the other house.
K'here, to their utter astonishment,

from shaded candles. It held a deli
cately figured service of blue and gold,
while the selection of thin stemmed
glasses all in rows indicated the char
acter of the entertainment that await
ed them. The men's eyes were too
busy with the unaccustomed sight to
note details carefully, but they felt soft
carpet beneath their feet and observed
that the walls were smooth and har

Emerson. "I'm afraid we're not in

I am delighted to have somebody to
talk to. It's very lonesome here." ,
"This is certainly a swell tepee," Fra
ser remarked. "How did you do it?"
"I brought my things with me from j

"Yes " '

the camp was discovered. It's strange

"I didn't stay there very long;

Again he fancied the girl's eyes held
a vague challenge, but he could not
be sure, for she seated him and then
gave some instructions to the Aleut
girL Boyd, becoming absorbed in his
own thoughts, grew more silent as the
signs of refinement and civilization
about him revived memories long
stifled. This was not the effect for
which the girl .had striven. Her
younger guesf s taciturnity, which grew
as the dinner progressed, piqued her,
so at the first opportunity she bent he
efforts toward rallying him. He an
swered politely, but she was powerlesa
to shake off his mood.
At last he spoke:
"You said those watchmen have lu
structions not to harbor travelers.
Why is that?"
"It is the policy of the companies.
They are afraid somebody will discov
er gold around here. You see, this Is
the greatest salmon river in the world.

"I don't quite understand"
"It is simple enough. Kalvik is so
Isolated and the fishing season is so
short that the companies have to send
their crews in from the States and
take them out again every summer.
Now. if gold were discovered here
abouts the fishermen would all quit
and follow the 'strike, which would
mean the ruin of the year's catch and
the loss of many hundreds of thou
sands pf dollars. Why, this village
would become a city in no time if such
a thing were to happen. The whole
region would fill up with miners, and
not only would labor conditions be en
tirely upset for yeara, but the eyes of
the world, being turned this way, oth-
! er people might go into the fishing
! business and create a competition
j which would both Influence prices and
i deplete the supply of fish in the Kal
vik river. So, you see, there are many
reasons why this region is forbidden
to miners. You couldn't buy a pound

"So that is why you have establish
ed a trading post of your own?"
"Oh. dear, no. This isn't a store.
This food Is for my men."
"Yes. I have a crew out In the hills
on a grub stake. This Is our cache.
While they prospect for gold I stand

Fraser chuckled softly. "Then you
are bucking the salmon trust?"
"After a fashion, yes. I knew this

I staked sir men, chartered a schoon

The unsuspected luxury of the din

ner Itself bad in a measure prepared
Emerson for what he found in the liv
ing room. One thing staggered him a
piano. The bearskins on the floor, the
big sleepy chairs, the reading table lit
tered with magazines, the shelves of
books, even the basket of fancy work
all these he could accept without fur
ther parleying, but a piano in Kalvik!
Again Boyd withdrew into that -silent
mood from which no effort on the
part of his hostess could arouse him.

listless hangof his hands and the dis

become unconscious of her presence in

"Do you care for music?" Her re

other answered: "My favorite hymn
is the 'Maple Leaf Eag.' Let her go.
Cherry settled herself obligingly and
played ragtime. She was in the midst
of some syncopated measure when
Boyd spoke abruptly, "Please play
She understood what he meant and
began really to play, realizing very
soon that at least one of her guests
knew and loved music Under her
deft fingers the instrument became a
medium for musical speech. Gay
roundelays, swift, passionate Hunga
rian dances, bold Wagnerian strains
followed in quick succession, and the
more her utter abandon the more cer
tainly she felt the younger man re
spond. Then her dream filled eyes
widened as she -listened to his voice
.breathing life into the words. He sang
with the ease and flexibility of an
artist, his powerful baritone blending
perfectly with her contralto.
For the first time she felt the man's
personality, his magnetism, as if he
baddropped his cloak aud stood at her
side in bis true semblance.
"Oh. thank you." she breathed.
"Thank you." he said. "I I that's
the first time in ages that I've had the

CANANEA ORE ZONE
TWENTY MILES LONG
Principally Black Sulpiride.
Many Valuable Proper
"The maun ore zone of the Cananea
district is about 20 miles long," says
Byron K. Manse, "the properties of
the Arizona Cananea Mines corporation
being located in the southern, half.
The northwest Jialf is owned by
Greene-Cananea; Phelps, Dodge & Co.
and others own the southwestern half.
The copper porphyry ore is practically
the same as that which occurs in the
mines of the Moctezuma Copper com
pany, owned by Phelps, Dodge & Co.,
and the Metcalf Hill, of the Arizona
Copper company. '
Ore is Black: Sulphide.
"The principal ore is a black sul
phide of copper or chalcocite, of which
about 9 percent of all the ore produced
by Greene-Cananea is composed.
"The properties of the Arizona Can
anea Mines corporation have the three
prerequisites necessary to copper de
posits in which porphyry is contained,
namely: Copper solutions in the coun
try rock, a formation sufficiently por
ous for the solution to penetrate; and
third a broken up condition, contacts,
fractures, fissures and faults through
the formation along the lines of which
the solutions can pass and penetrate
to both sides.
"On the Huerfana min-e of this com
pany a shaft 410 feet deep has been
sunk where copper values have in
creased with depth. Over 1500 feet of
drifts and crosscuts have been driven.
Two prospect shafts 40 and 90 feet
have also been sunk, both showing
"On ihe Corrigidor property a shaft
94 feet deep has been sunk near the
bottom of -which ore assaying two per
cent copper was encountered.
Other Holdings Good.
"The Monita, Creston, Native, Blight
and Elena properties of the company
are In one group, through which runs
a gulch, the water running through
which carries considerable copper sul
phate. Native copper has been found
and some oxides, but not in consider
able quantity. There are four shafts
on these properties, varying from 20
to 110 feet. In one of the shafts ore
rsaying 11 percent copper and 30
ounces silver per ton was discovered.
In shaft No. 4 a sir inch seam of 20
percent copper ore was struck, the
next eight feet being in concentrating
"There are alsj two tunnels on these
properties, one being 1050 feet long,
which was driven to prospect the
ground and to get a depth of about 350
feet under a series of two fractures.
About 700 feet from the mouth of the ',
tunnel the first fracture was encoun
tered, where a drift was run for 30
feet in ore averaging -one and a half
percent copper. A winze -has also been
sunk and dVrifting been done at the
bottom for 130 feet with 60 feet of
crosscuts, all of which is in concen
"Other properties owned by the Ari-
zona Cananea: Mines corporation are
the Martini, Escoses, Pelon and Resi
dual, containing over 900 acres, and
with good surface indications. The
Greene-Cananea has entirely surround

with satisfactory results."

with no apparent cause, the drill stuck

There arose much friction amcfrig the
members, resulting in the suspension of
all operations up to the present time.
At a recent meeting the parties com
promised by Mr. Scribner accepting the
abandoned well and five acres of land
and a share in the sale of 'holdings
owned by the company as his share and
withdrawing from the company.
There being two companies anxious

Santos Corlllo, Mexican, was fined
$10 in police court "Wednesday after
noon on a charge of disturbing te
peace and discharging fire-arms within
the city limits. Corrillo's principal of
fense seemed to be singing unwelcome
songs at the window of his former

the mind of the court as to whether
Santos or tho father of the girl fired
the shots, but no doubt as to the dis
turbance of the peace.

At the. recent meeting of the New
Jersey State Brewers association in the
city of Newark, while a floze'n or more
of the party were seated at lunch it was
noticed that none were served vith al
coholic beverages but drank vichy or
apollnarls instead. The somewhat
bumptious young president of a Jersey
City brewery came Into the lunch room,
and -looking over the table remarked,
"Is this a Prohibition convention? I

are going to reform and be good. In
the next they swear they will pay no
attention to law, and they don't. A law
abiding saloon is a contradiction of
BryaR's Great Temperance Speech.
"Your fallacy is this, that you talk
about fairness in regard to saloons,
whereas if you will read the lexicon of
the saloonkeeper, there are two words
that do not appear, 'fairness and 'jus
tice. There is no fairness or justice
about the saloon, and you might as
well understand that these words can't
be used of the liquor business.
"A saloon at the best is a nuisance
and never tolerated except as a neces
sary nuisance. Nobody defends the
saloon, they apologize for it, but they
never defend it. You can't find a state
In the union or a part of a state where
the people asking for a saloon ever
urge it as a moral center, an educa
tional institution or an economic asset.
"It is understood that the saloon is
not a blessing. Go and examine the
homes of your great liquor dealers, the
rich ones, and see how near they are to
a saloon. Go with a petition and ask
them to join with you in putting a saloon
near their residence, and they are the
last ones to do it. They will put a
saloon by the house of a poor man and
not only deprive his property of value,
but run the risk of ruining those about
thp snlrtnn hmr thv rln Tint nut it nonr
' their own homes.
The saloon is not a good thing. It
is a center of vice and crime. It is
the fiijst place a police officer goes
when he is looking for a criminal and
it is the first place closed when there
is a riot in town. It Is a bureau of in
formation on every vice, and only tol
erated for fear If you close it you will
have something worse than the saloon.
"Remember that the satoon is on the
defensive, that it is on the retreat, that
nothing can be said in Its favor and
that it must be content to be allowed
to live under such restrictions as the.
people think are necesary for the pro
tection of society."
