Copper Manual Data, 1904, Arizona Copper Go. ending Sept. 30, 1002. $1,232,24 Detroit Copper Co. 12,243, Shannon Copper Standard Copper All these companies are well known to the copper world, and have made Clifton famous :a one of the liest and richest districts ever discovered in this country. Its output is now Kieater than any other single camp of the t'uited States, while the cost of pro duction is less than in any other camp in the world, hcins liarely 6c. per Hi. The Arizona. Detroit anil Shannon mines are making a profit on ores averaging only 4 , copper. The two former companies have Iicei: opcratln;: over 20 years, the Shannon alHiut four years, the Standard only lliree. All the his strikes of copper in lhi district have licen made in or next to the sreat porphyry dykes niu niiiK from the Arizona Co.'s Jletcalf mine south we into the Longfellow district, and northeast into the New 1'nsland districr. The latter company shows at Soo feet dejith a vein 40 feet wide, assaying S to -lr; copper. The Clifton Copper Mines adjoin 1 he Standard, and their property has ad vanced in value 1,000 in live years. The Veiled Prophet Mines lie in the heart of this district, having the Arizona and the Shannon on the north, the Copper King and Standard on the west, and on the south and east the New England and the Clifton (now merged as the New England & Clifton Consolidated Copper Co.). The por phyry dykes above referred to as car rying the big copper values in this dis trict trend directly through the Veiled Prophet properties, five in all, each l,500xCOO feet, covering over 100 acres of surface, and known as Veiled Prophet No. 1, No. 2.

The concentrating ores run from 4 to 8, with an average of $4 gold and 3 oz. silver per ton. It is a matter of record that no fail ure has leen known on any property in tills district where systematic min ing and developing lias been done, and that in every instance a small initial expenditure has put the property on a paying basis, and the future develop ments made out of the profits from the We own and offer subject to previous sale $150,000 FIRST MORTGAGE 6 GOLD BONDS ?6E ST.

Otherwise Business Is Close to Stagnation Oriental Out look Less Hopeful. Now York. Feb. 2. The stock market lapsed a further stage toward entire stag nation to-day. Except for the factitious activity In a feu stocks, the dealing.! were a negative quantity so fr as they re fieclcd any vims on conditions of prop erties or pros-pects in the business, in dustrial or political world. There was a flurry in Amalgamate,! Copper in the opening dealings on the decision by the Montana Supreme Court, giving legal sanction to the holding by Amalgamated of stocks In other corporations, lint the price of that stock only got a shade high er than the first price, and then sagged heavily to ll below last night. The ac tion of the stock was attributed to profit taking on the favorable news. RISE IN STEW.. The rise in t'nltcd States Steel pre ferred, on the other hand, was called due to covering of speculative accounts on the short side. Operators who followed the decline last week were inclined to believe that tiie fall had been due to the knowledge of the coming resignation of John D. Rockefeller, from the Hoard of IJiieclors. Tlio shorts were therefore dis posed to cover with the news of the resig nation published. Some of the other iron and steel stocks hardc led in sympathy with United States Steel, but the move ment was short lived. News from the trade was meager, but the decline in gross earnings of the Pennsylvania lines for Dec. was counted as an unfavorable in dication, owing to the large share of that system In the iron and steel tratlic. Pennsylvania's reduction in operating ex penses for the same month w.is regarded hopefully as a possible promise for con servation of net earnings by retrenchment. Uepiiits of curtailment of anthracite pro duction, owing to poor market conditions, were apparently ignored, as were the rather ominous expressions brought out in the negotiations for a wage settle ment. In the bituminous field. The Russo-Japanese situation was deemed rather less hopeful for peace and this influence was shonn In a firmer tone for grain and a relapso in cotton. OPERATIONS RESTRICTED. The effect on the securities market was largely confined to restriction operations, pending the reception of the Russian reply to Japan. The professional operators of a smaller class were made abundantly aware that thev had the market almost exclusively to themselves, and as this condition offers little opportunity for profitable trading, they were very cautious In making ventures. A Jump in the price of United State Realty prel'-rred, was en tirely without explanation in any news that became known to the public. The attack on lirooklyn Transit was renewed and Metropolitan Street Railway reflected anxiety over the condition of W. C. Whit ney. Amalgamated Copper carried the whole market with it In the lead dealings to a level below last night, and the mar ket closed heavy and lifeless. Honds were dull and irregular. Total sales, par value, J2,335,t00. United States Bonds were unchanged on call. Xctr York Stock Quotation. Ft IiOuK Feb. 2. The following show? the oiieninK, hishest.

SUMMARYOFST.lOUiSMARKETS There was a sreat deal at bullish sentiment in yesterday's local grain market. Ca bles were generally higher r.nl shorts were still anxious to cover. Though receipts were fairly large, the speculative offerings were small and most of the scalpers and professional: were ranged on the buying side. The report of the Missouri State Board of Agriculture was one of the bullish factors. It said that there had been considerable damage both by dry freezing and by frot following thaws. The Illinois report was of much the samo tenor. There was no 'nar news, but the strength of foreign mar kets was looked upon as significant. Reports from Chicago did as much as anything: else to strengthen values here. It was said that the Jlay deal there was pretty 'well mixed and .that Armour was quietly absorbing nearly all of the offerings in the pit. There was a good bullish tone throughout the session. The weather was generally cold over the belt. Even a rise In temperature at this time' might be an equally bull ish factor, as it might make the roads impassable and check the movement to market., Corn was a decidedly strong spot. There were many complaints about soft grain. coming in and the Illinois weather report said that high-grade corn was scarce in that State. There was some profit-taking toward the end of the session, but the close was strong and higher. May wheat opened steady anel closed ?s?n5c up. May corn opened l-16c up and closed U"3?sc up. May oats closed He off. Receipts of produce were fairly large and prices of fruits and vegetables were gen erally steady to easy. Local securities again were active. Transit was sharply lower and United Rail ways preferred had good support. Yesterday's hank clearings were $10,433,712, balances 51,437,730. Discount rates wer steady between 5 and 6 per tent. Hpot cotton was IVic lower in the local market. GENERAL BULLISH FEELING ADVANCES GRAIN VALUES. CROP REPORTS FAVOR THE ltUYIXG SIDE. Corn Also Is Strong With Good Support in the Face of Mild ly Bearish Statistics. Grain markets were well suported In yes terday's market. While tho volume of trading was not extremely larae there was a great deal of bullish sentiment, based partly on foreign and partly on do mestic conditions. Cables were higher at the opening, despite the fact that there was no war news. Tho export inquiry showed a slight improvement. Reports of both tho Missouri and Illlunols State boards were decidedly favorablo to tho buying side. In addition to these Indica tions there were reports that Armour again was busy boosting the market in Chicaso. ; Rradstrcet's report the available sup ply of wheat east of the Rockies for tho past week at 1,070.000 bu. decrease and stocks in and alioat for Europe decreased 1,400.000 bu., making the world's visible supply decrease 2.470,000 bu.. against a de crease of 331.000 bu. a week ago and an Increase of lUltyAO bu.
