Believed by Mining Men the
New Discovery Has Great
' Commercial Value.
Lordsburg, K. M, April 24. That the,
state of New Mexico has sodium ni
trate deposits of commercial Import
ance is believed by many, new that the
extent of the nitrate discoveries near
Rodeo is becoming Known, says Asa
O. Garland, United States commissioner
at Rodeo. N. M.
The nitrate deposits were first dis
covered in 1913, but little attention was
paid to them until the all of 1914,
when active prospecting commenced.
.Since then several thousand acres have
een located as mining claims and some
development work has been started.
Where Deposits Are Found.
The nitrates are found on the west
( rn slope of the Peloncilio mountains
on the eastern side of the San Simon
alley, near the town of Rodeo, N.- M.
and not far .from- the Artsoaa line.
Their importance can he JMged from
their extent. The outcropping? can be
traced for a distance of nearly SO miles
north and south with a width of from
one to four miles, and are of unknown
depth. At Rodeo; the eutcropplngs
are so extensive that ,4fcY Storm the
ellow cliffs that fae the eastern

Until recently, Bttle werk? aside from
the necessary location work, has been
done on these claims. On those owned
by Prank Jones and A. James there has
been enough work done to show that
the nitrate contents increase with
depth. On these claims the nitrate
bearing body lies at an angle of about
45 degrees with a foot wall of an unde
fined porphvTT and a hanging wall of
quartrite At' this place the ore body
shows a thickness of over 1M feet and
lias been developed for about one mile
rorth and south. The nitrates are dis
seminated through the rock and where
cavities occur in the rocks, collect into
lumps of nearly pure sodium nitrate,
some of them being as large as a man's
Within Easy Access.
Most of th?se deposits are of verv
easy access, being situated on the El
Paso & Southwestern railroad and
within easy distance of the track. In
the vicinity of Rodeo they are situated
parallel to and above the track for a
distance of about seven miles, with suf
ficient slope to the track to enable all
ore to be run to the rails by gravity.
A good part of the ore can he mined
with a steam shovel and in a number of
cases there is no capping to be stripped
before beginning operations.
Excellent sites for redaction works
can be had adjoining the railroad at
Rodeo Water is found there In unlim
ited quantities and the railroad facili
ties are of the best Rodeo is the lead
ing shipping and supply point for the
Pan Simon vallev. Some of the nitrate
deposits are within two miles of the
station with a downhill haul to the
track. The land is level and there is
plenty of it
Good Mlnlnc Country.
Generally speaking the country is
well adapted to the mining industry.
The climate is mild and health fuL The
iltitude tempers the heat of summer
ind the winters are open and pleasant.
The San Simon valley is one of the rap

Is Different From Any Oth
er in Arizona; Montezu
ma Company Owns It.
Prescott. Arir April 24. With an
electric plant entirely different from
any other in Arizona, the Montezuma
Mining and Milling company will
shortly begin operations on the Bear
mtno Machinery for the plant is now
en route from Colorado, and it will be
set lip as soon as it arrives. Several
Colorado companies have tried out the
type of electric plant which the Mon
tezuma, people have purchased and It
has been pronounced an entire success.
With an electric drill the old tunnel
at the Bear will be driven 400 feet into
the mountain. This will thoroughly
exploit a piece of ground where all
mineralogies! conditions point to the
existence of a large ore body. After
many delays, the mill at the Dolphin
mine, on Turkey oreek. has started. A
large tonnage is on the dump an de
velopment work is being carried 'on In
Bar of Bullion Secured.
For the third time this year the Mi
rabel mill, on Groom creek, has made a
successful run. A bar of bullion worth
$500 was the result The Mirabel is
paying for its development and the
owners are contemplating operations
on a more extensive scale.
Machinery for the plant of theGray
Eagle Reduction company is arriving
at Mayer. A ball mill and other special
equipment not originally contemplated
have been ordered. If alt goes well the
plant will be operating in 6 days. It
is to be exclusively a custom mill and
ore is already accumulating In the
bins. The manager estimate, that any
ore found in that region can be handled
at a cost not exceeding $4 a ton.
WORK TO START SOON
Tyrone. N. M, April 24. Construc
tion work will soon be under way at
the new site of Tyrone and at the site

completed next week. Concrete work
is being done at the No. 2 and a slm

or three politicians to name the ticket
Put the stamp of approval on these
men and keep the schools out of poli
tics. Politics has always had too
much to do with tbo throttling of the
schools. Divorce now and forever
schools from polities."
School Candidates Speak.
Each of the candidates for school,
trustee spoke to the club after being
nominated. S. J. Frendenthal was the
first speaker. "This ticket stands
pledged to take the schools put of poll-ri-
and keen them out" said Mr. Freu-
denthaL "Mr. .riawley was a school
teacher as a young .man., and Mr. Whit-
aker was school director at -aldland
before he came here and he told me
he 'lored the work.' Mr. Stevens and
myself can be of material assistance.
I believe, in conducting the business
part of the board and we all atano,
pledged to give our best efforts to the
schools and to hold up the schools as
high as mayor Tom Lea will hold the
L,ea Got Villa Money.
"The papers recently said the Lea
administration had had iM,M passea
over to it by the old administration.
If this is true they must have passed
5800.0O0 in Villa currency on tnera."
S. M. Whitaker made one of the
best speeches of the meeting. He com
pared the schools of Texas to those
of other states and declared Texas was
just awakening to the needs for pub
lic schools. "It has been charged that
there was politick in the schools and
the schools were in the control of the
politicians. If this is true it is not
the fault of any one man or set of men,
but of the system of government in
practice here. El Paso has come to
the parting of the ways. Never again
I will the people stand for ring rule or
ooss controL THat day nas passed.
The politicians in El Paso who seek to
lay hands on the schools will receive
this ratmdiation aad condemns Hon of
pohHe sentiment. We will work in
harmony of the present members of the
board. If we fail to do this those men
remaining on the board are nor up to
the standard I have given them credit
Stevens and Kelly.
"Before the election a candidate
talked and talked and finally talked
nimseir out of office, said cnaries B
Stevens. "I do not want to do that
IM 1 am not going to make a speech.
Ail ci tne memoers oi tne ticaet with
me are producers (laughter. 1 hare
four and I believe there are 14 chll-
dren in the families of the candidates."
"It made my blood boil 10 or 12
years ago to see a superintendent of
schools go down on the south side
among the dives and plead for votes
to keep him In office. The day has
gone past when that can be done.
"If we are elected, I for one will
know no sectionalism, no creed or poll
tics in employing teachers for I be
lieve that we should get the very best
teachers for our schools regardless of
everything but their own merit. The
schools are our greatest assets and we
