It tJ stated that the Milwaukee
parties who were to build a smelter
at Cerrillos, have succcdcd in
raising the necessary capital for the
purpose and that the plant is as
sured. Copper matte, carbonate ores,
silver-lead and zinc concentrates,
anthracite and bituminous coal and
coke are among the principal pro
ducts shipped from Cerrillos. The
small and more precious shipments
according to bulk, are gold bricks,
nuggets and dust, and turquoise.
It is said that Cerrillos had the
biggest pay day for this month,
Saturday and Monday, which that
mining section has enjoyed within
the past two years. The coal
mines and the Cash Entry all paid
off, and the town was filled with
happy miners. The coal business
continues good, and a few more
months of the same kind of busi
ness will go far to make up for
Manager R. Y. Andcrson.of the
Lincoln-Lucky, is feeling elated
over the nearly completed condi
tion of the Middlcton shaft, which
will make the mine a great pro
ducer again as soon as it reaches
the ore body. When the mine gets
fairly to work, it should ship from
50 to 80 of tons ore a day, and this,
with the increased matte and coke
hauling for the Copper Company
will make teaming lively again
between San Pedro and Cerrillos.
Col M.C. Logan, of Sil ver Creek,
has contracts for furnishing wood
to the Last Chance and Maud
S. mills. The contracts aggregate
over 4000 cords. The colonel has
a sufficient number of men under
his control tobe entitled to promo
tion, and hereafter will be desig
nated as Brigadier General.
The Confidence company have
just completed their main adit
level to a distance of 1300 feet
from its month. Of the entire
length only 200 feet is in barren or
non-paying ore, the other 1 ico feet
is all in good pay ore. At last a
company in Southern New Mexico
has had the nerve to properly
develop one of our mines.and their
success is beyond their most san
General Miles, of New Orleans,
made a trip to Silver creek last
week to inspect and report upon
a large mining property. He has
had a great deal of experience in
western mines, having superin
tended good dividend payers.
He expressed himself as well
pleased with the property exam
ined, and the Enterprise from a
personal knowledge of the mine
believes it to be first class. We
are not at liberty to give the name
of the mine.
The Last Chance mill and mine
are working smoothly and steadily
and the output of gold and silver
bullion continues to be shipped
regularly through Wcll-Fargo's
office in this city. By some over
sight the management neglected
to have a supply of wood deliver
ed before the completion of the
mill and the mill is now handicap
ed trying to make steam with
green pine wood. The engineers
do their own firing and work eight
hours shifts, yet it is such hard
work that changes are frequent.
Outside of this obstacle every
thing is in good shapc,the mine
showing immense ore reserves in
sight and already developed
forstoping. A good sized gold
and silver brick was shipped last
The Silver Bell mine at Pyra
mid has been bonded by the Pyr
amid Silver mining company.
Superintendent Hamilton will put
a force of men to work imme
diately, opening up the property
and taking out ore. The mine
has a shaft 90 feet deep, which
shows up considerable high grade
ore, as well as large quantities of
medium grade. The claim was
located by Enoch Warrington
some twelve years ago, but has
never been worked systematically.
Ore was shipped from this proper
ty many years ago, which netted
$80 per ton in silver, over and
above excessive freight and reduc
tion charges. The price to be
paid for the property is $ 15,000.
The Bremen mill has turned out
14 bricks from custom ore in 19
days this month up to last night,
and yet the croakers say there are
not sufficient resources in the vi
cinity of Silver City to maintain
a city of large size. Thirty-five
tons of ore a day at the Elagler
works, a $1000 brick every day
from the Bremen, and still not
sufficient capacity for the reduc
tion of our ores, thousands of tons
being shipped to Denver, Pueblo.
Socorroand ElPaso. Every dollar
being spent in the county is com
ing out of our mines and the
amount of money in circulation in
Silver City is greater per capita
than in any town in the west. The
ore reduction business will grow,
a new smelting plant will soon be
started, and the Colchis company
will complete their mill ere long,
which will probably handle 60 or
70 tons of ore par day, putting in
circulation an average of S2500 or
Í3000 per day more than at pres
ent. While business at present
is as good at any point in the west
the outlook for the immediate
future is exceedingly bright.
Dolan & Co., leasers on the St
Louis mine at Pinos Altos.made a
strike last week fraught with im
portance, and of great significance
when considered in connection
with the manydiffcrcnt limcstome
areas within a radius of ten miles
from Silver City. These men who
are practical miners with much ex
perience in limestone districts,
leased the property with nothing
in sight. For six months they
have worked faithfully risking
their time money and labor on
their belief in the existence o
good ore at the contact, Staking
all they had on their opinion form
ed upon the result of former ex
perience in similar formations,
they followed a small scam of iron
carbonate, which at a depth of 75
feet opened a chamber of ore the
extent of which is not yet made
public. The ore is a heavy galena
assaying 97 ounces silver and 47
per cent. lead. The boys have a
bonanza and they deserve it
