Strange thoughts arose as I revisited
the old scenes. The old granite peak
of San Augustine towered up 6850 feet
and old Organ peak reared its dome
like head 910S feet above the valley,
and nestled below San Augustine pass
was the old mining camp of Organ.
Just as in 181-2. when a wild ex
citement over the discovery of silver
caused a rush which nearly depopu-,
lated the then sleepy adobe town of
.Las Cruces and the new railroad town
of El Paso.
The old familiar names still cling to
many of the claims and mines, such
as the Memphis, the Merrimac, the Lit
tle Buck, Jim Flsk, the Bennett, the
Stevenson and the Modock, and the old
open cuts, tnnnels, shafts and dumps
mark the mountain sides as of yore;
But nearly all the old timers are dead.
KxpeettaR Revival of Boom.
Where once was a wild, frenzied
crowd of red-shirted miners, a half
dosen saloons and gambling hcuses, is
now a quiet village, peaceful, but ex
pectant of a revival of the gay and
flush times when silver was worth over
Jl an ounce.
As we climbed up the mountain side
from Merrimac canyon, we found one
old pioneer miner working all alone
in a tunnel on a four foot vein of
copper on his new Copper Bullion and
Iron Mask claims. He discovered the
ramous Torpedo mine many years ao
and sold it for a pittance a mine that
a dozen years afterward yielded half a
million dollars. He invested his money,
$10,000. from that sale in city lots, but
lost it through defective title; and
now in his old age, is confident he will
make another stake. On the road we
met Pat Breen, another famous pio
neer, discoverer of the Mountain Chief.

tnose mils, who made a fortune in a
week lost it in sheep, and now is
delving again to extract another stake.

The Organ mountains, so called from
the granite spires which In the dis

organ, form a link in the long chain
of mountains extending from the
Fraklin mountains of Texas north to
the end of the Sandia range near Al

We visited a number of the old
mines and several prospects on the
western side of the range. W de
scended the Excelsior mine, which is
now idle. This property is situated
a mile and a quarter north of the town
of Organ. It is owned by the estate
cf Gedrge K. Wood, of Chicago The
main shaft is about ISO feet deep, and
inclines to the west about 60 degrees
According to L. N. Bentley, the as
sayer and mining geologist of Organ,
the Excelsior has produced and shipped
over 100 carloads of ore running from
12 to 25 percent copper. It belongs to
the contact-metamorphic class of de
posits. The ore eTMCsdtt occurs in a
garnetizeA stratum. Jtjnating with
coarsely crystalline magfaesian lime
stone. The mineraUMd- body is over
20 feet wide. Tns-'strike of the vein
at the shaft is north and south and
the granite contact lies a little east.
The minerals are malachite, chalcoclte
ana cnaicopynie, me jasi mieruuirai
with garnet. There has been consider
able atoping in the lower levels There
is a large dump of low grade ore that
would run from three to five percent
copper. On the property is a gasoline
hoist and several frame houses.
This mine was discovered in the early
days and then called the Jay Gould, and
-was owned by Lige Davis and associ
ates. In 1899 R. T. Anderson, of EI
Paso, and William Hayden, of Organ,
operated it and skipped a large amount
of -good copper ore, and transferred the
mine to an eastern company.
At the Excelsior the contact swings
eastward and the next property of note
is the Ruby, one-fourth mile from the
Excelsior. The development is slight
and the ore is similar in character to
that of the Excelsior.
A little east of the Excelsior, in the
granite, is the Big Three mine. owned
and now in active operation by Lerch
en and Johnson, who have Just shipped
a carload of high grade ore to the smel
ter running 100 ounces silver and 30 to
50 percent lead. It is developed by a
100 foot shaft. The vein is a fissure,
two "to four feet wide, constantly wid
ening with depth
Northeast of the Excelsior about a
mile is the old Merrimac mine, in a
ridge from the main range along the
Merrimac canyon. It is said to be
owned by Mrs. Felter, of Las Cruces.
There is a vertical shaft over 140 feet
deep which penetrated zinc blende and
chalcopyrite. From this shaft was
taken out very high grade siher ore.
In a shallow tunnel is a stratum of zinc
carbonates. The croppings are copper
stained. Two hundred feet south of
the shaft is the granite contact.' The
zinc occurs tot a gametic rock.
Henry Fay's Claims.
Ascending the canyon, we came to a
spring, and followed up the contact
southeastward 500 feet higher up the
mountal nto the Copper Bullion and
the Iron Mask claims, owned by Henry
Foy. On this are two parallel veins,
when he is developng by three tunnels.
These veins run east and west. In
the tunnel where Foy is working the
vein is three and a hair to four feet
wide and the ore runs nine percent
copper. It looks like a mighty fine
prospect. The ores are oxidised.
Across the canyon and immediately
north of the Copper Bullion is the Apex
mine, owned by L. B. Bentley, of Or
gan, and H. X. Bowman. This is a
onact vein of lead-silver ore between
granite and lime. It is developed by
tnnnejs and shafts and is a very prom
Down the ridge, west of the Apex, is
the famous Little Buck mine, which
also adjoins the .Merrimac on the north

percent iron, nine to 20 percent copper
and six to 15 ounces silver per ton.
Fanem .Torpedo Mine.
Just south and across tie main street
of Organ town lies the famous Tor
pedo toppo mine. This mine was dis
covered over 20 years ago by the Foy
brothers, who, year by year, did only
assessment work They appar
ently cared only for silver,
ignoring the copper. Thousands
of people, like .myself, drove by
their old tunnel within 100 feet or the
road, never deigning to look at the
blue stained rock on the dump At
last along came a keen-eyed mining
man. Maj. R. T. Anderson, and instant ly
reccgnlzed its possibilities as a. copper
mine of magnitude. So in 1899 he and
William Hayden, who then were oper
ating the Excelsior, bonded and leased
the Torpedo from Henry Fyrfor $10,
000 It is said to have produced since
then over 1000 carloads of ore averag
ing 10 to 16 percent copper from above
the 200 foot level.
The ore body is a large mass of
chryscolla or copper silicate ore, with
only two ounces silver. It lies be
tween the limestone and the granite.
The ore looks like a soft kaollnised
and brecciated material stained with
blue and black copper. In 1905-1947
the mine was worked by lessees, and
man shipments were made. The mine
is developed by a tunnel and three
shafts, one 150 feet, another 240 feet
and the third 300 feet deep. A heavy

one in Organ is anxious to see this
great mine in operation again.
Most prominent and famous of all
the mines of Organ district is the
Stephenson-Bennett mine, one and a
half miles south of Organ City. It was
discovered in 1849 by Mexicans. The
Stephenson mine was owned by J. F.
Stephenson, of Las Cruces. A smelter
was erected in Las Cruces in 1854 to
treat the lead and silver ores of this
property. Up to the beginning or the
Civil war it had produced about $106,
000. It was owned at one time by mil
itary officers. Ex-Gov. Thornton oper
ated it several years ago. It is reputed
to have produced nearly $1,000,000. It
is owned now by the Organ Mountain
Mining company, which is represented
by J. L. McCullough, secretary, of El
Paso. A. L. Hurley is local manager at
The present ore bodies are in the

There are three ore shoots, each in
a separate fissure. One of these, the

of 400 feet A tunnel has 'been run
3000 feet long, which taps the mine at
300 feet depth, and not only unwaters
it, but all the mines along the same
Still a Prospect.
Although with a record of $1,000,000
production, the Stephenson-Bennett is
still in the prospect stage. Its pros
pective ore bodies have scarcely been
scratched. These have steadily
widened with depth At the water level
the ore body widened to 20 feet, and
at 400 feet depth they are said to be
40 feet wide. Several thousand feet of
development work has been dane in
drifts, crosscuts, shafts, stopes and tun
nels. Concentrates from the mill,
amounting to 20 carloads, ran from
$1195 to $2745 per car, carrying from
14 to 3$ ounces silver and from 44 to
57 percent lead.
There are two compressors and ma
chine drills, three 85 horsepower boil
ers, a 100 horsepower engine and a
250 ton concentrating mill. On the
property are numerous houses, giving it

and abundant wulfentte, all carrying
good silver values. An elaborate and
interesting description of this proper

Another property is the Modoc, four
miles south of the Stephenson-Bennett
The first mention of this mine is
by Antisell. the geologist, in 1854. It
is sa,d to be owned by the estate of
George E. Wood, of Chicago, owner of
the Excelsior. There is a concentrat
