Saturday, January IS, 1913
Opportunity comes to everybody, not only once, but many times in a life time. But when opportunity comes it
is like a fast express, stopping only long enough to give the person who moves quick and does things, time to
jump on board, and then opportunity carries him safely to his destination. If you sit idly by and let opportunity
slip away from you, one year ten years from now you'll have no more than you have today.
Look how East El Paso real estate valueshave gone up and are still jumping up by leaps and bounds to higher
prices. The shiftless mart has not profited by this increase in value.
The industrious man who spends all he makes has not profited.
But the ambitious, thrifty man has seen his capital double and treble because he took advantage of his opportunity.
Greater fortunes will be made in the future than in the past. - .

Miami's December Otityut.
The Miami -Copper company's output
for December was 2,913,840 pounds at
a cost of S cents per pound. The most
interesting features of recent surface
work at the Miami are the continued
instalation of Hardinge mills to re
place the Chilean mills formerly used,
the completion of the mine machine
shops, the occupation of the new en
gineering offices that were built to
replace those that were unbalanced by
the settling surface above the caving
stopes, and the instalation of a switch
on the tramway that hoists supplies
from near the town of Miami in the
valley below. The spur conveys sup
plies directly to the machine shops.

southwest of Miami the shipments dur
ing December fell off about a carload
because of the difficulties Interposed
to transportation by the cold weather
that has prevailed in this district for
the past three weeks. However, 262
tons of 18 percent ore were shipped to
the Old Dominion smelter at Globe in
December and the January shipment
will reach 300 tens. The raise lifted
from the 600 to the 400 foot level has
been finished and stoping along the
entire length of the raise will be be

long raise another raise (also on the
Pasquale vein) will be lifted to the

Iron Cap to Increase Force.
The output of the Iron Cap Copper
company for December last was about
450 tons of ore averaging 6 percent
copper and 4 percent iron. The ore
from this mine is shipped to the Old
Dominion smelter at Globe. The slope
sheets shew a steady increase of de
velopment and output since work was
begun September, 1912. On the 650 and
800 foot levels more or less develop
ment is being prosecuted continuously.
The work Is being done at the "Wil

35 men is employed at the mine and
manager Woodward says the force will
be increased during the present year.

district are Snell and Fisk at the War

Geneva. The former are shipping about
70 tons of 7 percent ore daily to the
Old Dominion at Globe, and the Geneva

shipping to the same reduction plant.

At the new Dominion property, one
half mile north of the Gibson mine,
after two years of unsuccessful work
in the barren schist, the owners of the
property have the satisfaction of being
on a well defined and richly mineral

Dominion management decided to
crosscut to the north. Coming back to
a distance 200 feet distant from the
face of the tunnel the north drift was
started, and within a distance of 100
feet the vein was cut. It contains a

Pioneer Arizona Copper Op
erator Is on His
Way to Europe.
Charlie Shannon everyone in Ari
zona. New Mexico and El Paso calls
him "Charlie" who was here Friday, to
on his way to New York, where he will
sail for Europe. The name Shannon
has a good, old Irish turn to it that
stamps its owner as a descenaent pi
the Celts, although it means more in
Arizona than it does In Ireland. The
Shannon Copper company, at Clifton,
has long been one of the big producers
of the southwest. Mr. Shannon was the
man who made the Shannon what It is
and with which he was associated dur
ing the early days of copper develop
ment in the red metal' state.
It is a coincidence that two of Ari
zona's pioneer copper miners should
happen to be in El Paso within the
same week. H. Lesinsky, the man who
shipped the first copper ore out of the
state of Arizona, was here recently to
visit his old time friends. He told of
the strenuous times he and his asso
ciates had in the early days of Ari
zona. One of these associates was Rob
ert Metcalf, who discovered .the first
copper deposit in Arizona. Another was
Charles Shannon, a nephew of Metcalf.
and one of the little group of men who
wrote the early history of Arizona cop
"When Ciirton "Was "Frisco."
Going to Clifton when that city was
known as "Frisco." because It was on
the San Francisco, and because it was
no- like San Francisco, Cal., Mr. Shan
non helped In the development of the
Iongfellow. the Metcalf group and the
Coronado mines which are now produc
ing copper at the rate of hundreds of
thousands of tons annually. He went to
"Frisco" from Silver City on January
1 1872, making the trip by stage, as
railroads were then unheard of in the
land. His uncle. Robert Metcalf. had
preceded him to that country by a few
years, having arrived in Silver City in
1869, following the civil war which lost
MEW ON THE
E. P. & S.
him everything he owned. Originally
a forty-niner. Metcalf. who was a na
tive Kentuckian, had returned from
California to Texas with a good grub
stake from the gold fields. He invested
this in negroes and lands and -was In
a fair way to make his big fortune,
when the civil war broke out.
In this he lost all of his negroes, and
his lands became worthless because of
the lack of labor. He had fought
through the four years of the strife
and. discouraged, he left for the west,
intending to go to California and re
gain his lost fortunes. Had" he car
ried out his original intention, the his
tory of Arizona copper might not have
heen written when it was.
Hearing of Silver City, they called
it "Silver" In those days. Mr. Shannon
says, Metcalf stopped off there and
went to the Clifton country in '?, where
he became associated with Mr. Lesinsky,
who had come there from Las Cruces
the same year. The discovery of the
native copper deposit has been made
by Metcalf and Lesinsky.
"Was. Pioneer Newspaper Man.
Active as he was as a mining man,
Charles Shannon was equally well
known as a pioneer newspaper man of
the southwest. It was he who assisted
in establishing and issuing: the Globe
Silver Belt at Globe. Ariz. This was in
1878 when the Irst edition of the week
ly mining and local paper appeared
from the hand press of the Silver Belt
office. This paper was sold only re
cently and will be moved to Miami af
ter 34 years of continuous publication
Mr. Shannon was also associated with
S H. Newman, of El Paso in publish
ing the""-34" & newspaper which was
published at La. Mesllla. N. M., in 1881.
This paper derived Its name from the
fact that an organisation of 34 men
had won a political victory with the
assistance of the paper. Afterwards
Mr. Shannon came to El Paso with Mr.
Newman and assisted in establishing
the "Lone Star" which was published in
This was - in 18S2 and Mr. Shan
non tells a number of interest
ing stories of the events that occurred
within a short distance of the Lone
Star office which as he remembers it,
was located on the corner of Overland
and Santa Fe streets. One night as he
was about to enter the uoor of a va
riety theater on El Paso street, he says
he heard shots, and behind the doors
he saw the body of "Doc" Cummings,
a bartender, 'who had been killed by
one of the 'well known characters of
the early days. Those were pretty live
ly days In El Paso, as Mr. Shannon de
He left here for Arizona in 1SS2 and
again engaged In the mining business.
His uncle. Robert Metcalf afterwards
sold his claims and returned to Lex
ington, Ky., where be died. The Shan
non mine 'was not originally called by
that name, but was a part of the Met
calf group. Gradually the miners gave
it the name of Shannon because of us
manager and owner's activities there.
Later he sold a. half interest in the
mine to Gob. Bela X. Hughes, of Den
ver. Shannon Coiapasr Formed.
"VVhen the mine was finally sold to TT.
B. Thompson, then of Butte Mont, now
of New. York, the Shannon Copper com
pany was organised and named in
honor of Mr. Shannon, "who was forced
to retire from the mining field because
of his health.
Since going to the Pacific coast. Mr.
Shannon has become a very wealthv
man, his modesty preventing any of his
old friends la El Paso learning Just
how much he really is worth. He was
engaged in the lumber business on the
north Pacific coast and maintained an
office in Seattle. He disposed of this,
however, and is now en route to Europe
n? search of health. His home is in Los
Angeles, although he still claims Ari
zona as his adopted state and Lexing
ton, Mo, his home town.
