THE WILLIAMS NEWS
7 Territorial Mining News Of General Interest Cleaned From Our Exchanges The new smelting plant of the Arizona Copper company is near ing completion, and will he in operation in a few days. Clifton Copper Era. The Levy brother, of Signal, will soon have their mill on the Green wood mine in running order. The ore from the mine is rich in gold and if the mill is successful in working it another mill of larger capacity will lie installed. Mohave Miner. A railroad to the mines of the Bill Williams fork would open up a wonderfully rich mineral country, I he ores carry values in cop per, but owing to their isolation it is impossible to handle them profit ably. With better facilities the mines will become as big producers as any mines in Arizona. Mohave Miner. The whole Wallapai mining dis tnct is showing a revival in min ing. From Chloride to Kingman the mines are being worked by companies and chloriders as they were never worked before, and this fall and winter promises to see more men at work than ever in the history of the country. Mohave Miner. We are informed, and verily be lieve, that the great Stratton.of the Independence, of Cripple Creek, has placed $7,000,000 in the hands of Banker Moffit, of Denver, to be invested in Arizona copper properties. Arizona is surely the the greatest mining center in the United States today, especially when it is copper. And copper is certainly king in the mining norld today. Globe Times. Tonopah camp, Nye county, Ne vada, has 185 tents and buildings, lively progress, increasing display of rich ore, high prices, hot weather and a preacher. It wants, but can't get, ice, more teams, lumber, and a few other things. Fifteen carloads of ore started for Selby's smelter in one day recently, but rich ore is piled all over the hills waiting for teams to haul it to the railroad at Sodaville. Pacific Coast Miner. There is now no doubt that a rail road will soon be built to Search light by either the Santa Fe or the Quartette company. The lack of fuel in the camps along the river makes it imperative that a railroad should be built in. - Electric power would obviate a road into that country but it is rather hard to in terest capital in any electric under takings in a new country. The river will eventually furnish power for all purposes, but mining com parties can not await the installa tion. Mohave Miner. It is reported that thirty-five men went on at the Black Copper yesterday morning. Everything tends to indicate that the mining center of Globe district is veering northwest a little. The Black Copper, Black Warrior, Eureka, the Howell group, the Selby, the Continental, and all Pinto and up per Mineral creek, form a district that will some day surprise the natives. Capital is becoming more interested in that section every day Globe Times. On the Nickless property, which is being worked by We Nickless, Dave Branneman and J. A. Miller, two main shafts are down about 100 feet and several prospect shafts have been sunk, all of which show very good ore carrj-ing gold, silver and copper, the silver values being quite high and the gold and copper both of good value. This property is going to make a fine smelting proposition and it is about the closest mining property to Wick enburg, being only about two miles and a half from town. Wicken burg News-Herald. The Wickenburg News-Herald says that great excitement prevails at Yuma over the discovery of one of the richest deposits of gold and copper ore in the history of Yuma mining circles. The well known mining men, frank (juerra, Jim Carl, J. S. White, Sam Temple and R. P. II. Laney have discovered in Riverside county, above Pichacho, a ledge of gold and copper which runs 3,000 in gold and 10 per cent in copper per ton and the ledge is from two to twenty-five feet wide. Mr. Laney brought in a sack of the ore and it is now on ex hibition in Mayor Shunnessy's office. The owners are satisfied they have one of the largest and richest properties in the southwest. They are all practical mining men not easily excited, and are very enthusiastic over the discovery and say they would not exchange for the famous King- of Arizona mine, with the machinery thrown in. Death of W. J. Dugrzan. On last Saturday W. J. Duggan, an old and well-known resident of this section, met a horrible death at one of the camps of the Saginaw &. Manistee Lumber company south of town. He was employed on one of the skid-ways in piling up the logs ready for shipment to the mill here, when the timber sup porting the enormous load gave way. Immediately the logs began to roll toward him and in trying to escape he lost his footing and fell. Several large logs passed over him, crushing out his Me. The remains were brought to this city and under the direction of Un dertaker J. S. Button were interred in the cemetery last Sunday. The deceased has a brother liv ing in Denver, Colo., and two mar ried sisters in Saginaw, Mich. The sad news was telegraphed them, but as no answer was received the remains were buried here. W. J. Duggan was a man well along in years, and though his ap pearance did not show it, was near ly sixty years of age. He had been, for the past six months, in the employ of the company, but prior to that time was engaged in the saloon business here. Thus again is it demonstrated how uncertain are the ways of life. Later. On Wednesday Mr. Michael Duggan, of Denver, a brother of the deceased, arrived in the city to look after and straighten up the deceased'saffaire. To Intro dace our Goods...
