12 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 30, 1Q12.
I OHIO COPPED IS
I FORCEDJ ASSESS
Unwelcome News Received on
Wednesday That Company
Needs Assistance.
ONE DOLLAR PER SHARE
Plan of Reorganization Re
ported Involving- Reduction
of the Par Value.
Local stoeklsoWers of the Ohio Cop
per company, who, despite their better
Judgment, have held onto iheir stock In
thm hope that the Interests In control
would bring: about order and operating
success, wore rudely disillusionized Wed
nesday afternoon when the news cams
across the Pollock wires to the effect
that a reorganisation scheme had been
decided upon end that an assessment of
fl per share had born called for.
It has been taken for granted popu
larly that the Ohio Copper stock was not
assessable and thai the stockholders
themselves were the authorised ones to
put any reorganisation plans on tine
tapis, but tn the nhsence of definite
information in ths premises it is now
conceded that if the directors want the
shareholders to put up the $1 share
thsy might as well conclude to put it
up or sell out.
Want Change in Control.
It is not an easy matter to discover
who are present stockholders of the com
pany locally, as a great many recently
nave disposed of their holdings, but a
number seen vesterday after the news
of the reorganisation came asserted that
they would be unwilling to nay any as
sessment until there was a change in the
management. They believe that the ru
mor afloat on Wednesday in regard to a
stockholders' protective committee as
well founded and that soma such step
win be taken by the eastern stockhold
ers, In which case a number have ex
pressed their determination to Join with
any such movement.
Up to the publication a few days ago
of the report for th six months ending
March 81, IMS, stockholders have been
unable to obtain any information of an
suthorltative character about the Ohio
Copper and they have proceeded entire
ly in the dark. They bellev that there
will be an abundance of news now avail
able and they welcome this feature with
open arms
The wire over the Pollock system was
tn effect that the reorganisation would
consist of altering the capitalization
from flS.000,000 to $7,500,000 by reducing
the par value from $10 to $5 a share,
leaving the number of shares of stock
where it now stands, 1,600,000 shams.
New certificates will be Issued and ex
change for the old on n share-for-share
basis and upon the payment of the $1 a
hare.
Will Hurt the State.
A tew weeks ago ihe mine was exam
ined hv Knglneer Henry Krumb. presumably-
for the creditors. The result
of this examination has not been dis
posed, but that it was unfavorable is
believed by som in icw of the dis
closures of Wednesday The Ohio situa
tion Is an extremely 'unfortunate one on
account of the amount of T'tah money
tied up In the proposition and because
the property Is located in Utah.
MARBLE FROM UTAH
WILL BE MARKETED
At a meeting of the directors of the
Murray Black Marble company in the
office of Judg" J v. Burton, the presi
dent, measures t ere discussed and adopt
ed looking to the peneral prosecution of
work on the company's properties and
particularly providing for filling a con
tract recently miide for a carload ship
ment of marble to Chicago. Work is
now progressing vigorously a I the quar
ries and It is expected the shipment
can be made In les than twenty days.
This will be the first big consignment of
the kind ever sent out of the state, and
It will he followed by others In different
directions
The demand for the product is on the
Increase, the quality and quantity hav
ing been thoroughly demonstrated.
The ledger are of great extent, being
BOO to 600 feet In width and showing up
for a mil In lonRth. all of which are lo
cated by this company They ere situ
ated within lean than s mile of the Tin
tic branch of the Palt T.ake Route, west
of the north end of Utah lake, and thus
have the advantage of easy shipment of
products. Arrangements are being made
for the installation of machinery at the
works, end when this is accomplished
production and shipment will he consld
rab augmented.
LEAD-ZINC TARIFF
MATTER IS DODGED
The. June bulletin of the American
Mtnine congress contains the following
Interesting paragraph on th proposed
tinkering with the tariff on lead and
sine during the present session of eon
jtreys: "The Underwork bUt providing for a
reduction in the tariff duties upon lead
and zinc ore. was under consideration by
the senate at our last report The Cum
mins amendment, which carried with
it fair protection to these items, was
voted down. Because of the deliberate
absence of some of the friend? of pro
tection, th hill pas -ed with amend
ments. ont of which provided for the re
peal of the Canadian reclpro Itv act. The
bin was sent to a conference commutes
and i is not possible at thl time to preJ

that President Taft will veto this bill
e'nou'd the conference committee come to
an agreement concerning the nex fea

Chance as Now.
The state of Nevada If basking in the
brightest smelting competition sunshine
In Its history, and the producer of ore
has the opportunity of a lifetime for se
curing Rood terms for the reduction of
his product. There Is a new Richmond
in the field in the shape of the Mason
Valley company, which is after copper
ores, and getting them. too. reliovlng the
producer of the expensive railroad haul
to Salt Lake plants. This same company
Is quietly gathering In other classes of
ore as well, which will he needed In time
to come a6 operations increase.
At Ely there Is the Nevada Consoli
dated smelter and concentrator, which has
never emphasized the custom smelting
business until lately. punctuating its
change of policy by acquiring the Glroux
mine product where. theretofore, the
Glroux had anticipated the necessity of
carrying Its product clear to Utah
The Salt Lake smelling companies, the
American 8mlting. United States and
International, likewise are giving Nevada
a great deal of attention. The Interna
tiona and United States companies have
established state agents, whose duties are
to corral the ores of that common we a 1 1 h,

necessity of a discovery. (Reims v.
Murray ' 12 L. D.. 109.)
"in Henderson et al. v. Pulton L.
D.i 662) the department considered a
definition of the word vein or lode. At
j)Hge 606 it quoted Justice Pield'a lan
guage in Qureka Consolidated Mining
company v-. PJ.-hmond Mining cOmpany
r I Sa wyer 302 1 .
"The min era made tl n definition first.
As used by miners, before hetng defined
by any authoritv. the lerm lode simply
meant that formation by which the miner
could lie led or guided -, il IS in alters -
Hon of the verb led: and whatever the
miner could follow, expecting to lind ore,
whs his lode
"The difficulty In the East Tlntlc cr4je
was. as found by the department, thai
the formation disclosed w.is not such as
to load the miner to find, or expect lo
find, any d"posH of ore therein, but that
the only real Indication Of a valuable
mineral deposit being found In that l?nd
vat his belief founded upon the geologic
conditions and mining development "( the
district.
"Paragraph n of th mining regula
tion" adopted larch IOoO:
"The vein or lode must he fully de
scribed. th description to include a state
ment as to the ind and character of
mineral the extent thereof, whether or
has been ex t meted and of what amount
and value, and such other facts as will
support the applicant's allegation that
the laini contains valuable mineral de
posit. Prior to the sdbptlon and enforcement
of this regulation, ihe evidence of the
existence of a vein or lode was in the
greatest percentage of case? ihe ax parte
showing of ft-e appltcanl for patent, whlcM
frequently was perfunctory In character.
The ?'-'-eptaiice of such showings by the
land office nnddubtedly ted to the issu
ance of patenis for mining claims upon
w.hleh 110 discovery o a vein or lode had
In fSct been made It t rather the en-
forcemenl or the e-i.itng law requiring
the discover-.- of vem or lode, than ny
Change In the department's regulation.?
thereof which has caused the difficulties
which gave rise to the adoption of Jhe
resolutions by the mlnio? echatige.
New Legislation N'icied.
The department it; of the opinion that
legislation, supplemental to 'he present
mining statute, u advisable. There are
areas of puhi- lauds in which mineral
deposits are believed to be contained, bul
which, if there, lie at gteat depth and
upon which dlSCOVerlei cannot he ui.de
without large expenditures, while under
the nvlstlntr 'aw .i valid o.-.-. t i.n cannot
he made until a discovery has been a"-
oniplished and the prospector 1 there
fore not hilly protected The depart -,ment
believes that legislation should be
enstcted authorising It to nrant permit
giving an Individual, or Individuals, the
exclusive right to prospect a certain
tract of public land for the mineral it Is
thought to contain for a limited oerod
Of time. Such legislation should contain
provisions requiring a certain amount of
annual development work as an earns si
of good faith, restricting the area and the
number of claims that could he held
under such A permit, and requiring wif'-i-tii
a limited period of time th purchase
or ieae from the United states of the
mineral d.-poslts retaining the fee ,,f the
bind m the United states, which c.-uid
then dispone of the surface as conditions
might warrant This legislation
nn tv..ii supplement senate hill N.. HIM,
now pending before the Hcnnte. which In
brief, .in to future locations, abolishes
evtralateral rights PMUlreS notices of lo
cation to he alSO fllcrl for recr.r.l with
