THE ARIZONA; - REPUBLICAN,
SEVENTH Ylivg llix; AKIZONA, THURSDAY MQKNING, SEPTEMBER 24, .1896. VOL. VII. NO. !09. r ! : ?w Low Grade But Extracted Easily. It Is a Surprise But No Doubt True. The Farmers of Nebraska Are Ex cited Over the Discovery and Are Preparing to Pref It. The Denver Republican, says: The earth Is full of surprises, especially of a geographical character, and nothing will surprise the minims men. of Colo rado more tharo to learn, tlhat a Ne braska man is to the city tor the pur pose of making arrangements for the erection; of a cyanide plant in Nebraska to treat gold ore taken out in that . state. - But incredulous as it seems it Js none the 'less true. Henry Har rison, manager of the Union Creek Mining company of Nebraska, is the man. Mr. Harrison,, in talking of the matter yesterday, said: "I am aware that this is an extraor dinary proposition to a Colorado man, but we have made eifVe of our ground, and we know that we 'have the stuff. "What we propose to do now is to find the place in. this new gold belt of ours an which, we can get the best returns. (When we find that we will erect our cyanide works and take ore from all parts of 'the belt. iWe (hare had it tested by the state university, by the Omaha and Grant works, by the cya nide process and by Henry B. Wood of your city, and in every instance it has 'given returns from $ 2 to $4 in gold. We are not selling amy stock, have not listed it on any stock hoard, and are simply testing what we know we have. "We are only capitalized for $60,000 and the whole of that amount is la the hank at Stanton. "Both the banks of Stanton and a large number of our leading men are stockholders, and if the teats ali-eady made hold cut in the treatment by the cyanide process we have siiuff as good, if not tetter, than the Mercury ih Homestake mines, as we have only to shovel dlt out, and have no expense such as is involved in -mining and stamp mill treatment. IWe can treat it by the cyanide process for not more than 70 cents per ton. .; "The deposit was first discovered in the neighborhood of Lincoln, but: that was a failure, as we have found that as we go farther south the material is more or less mixed with clay, which makes it (hard to treat The material carrying the gold is clearly a sedi mentary deposit, lying in a stream from two to seven feet thick. We find dt sometimes twenty feet thick. Gen erally it is found a few feet below the surface, but it 'frequently rises to the surface. The locality is on the Elk horn, fifty miles 'north of Lincoln, and about fifty miles east of the eastern 'line of' Colorado. It has been traced for a distance of 100 miles and one of the objects of our company is to dis cover the extant of the deposit. "When it was first discovered land in the vicinity was sold for as much as $3,000 an acre, and there are now more than fifty farmers on the Elk horn who are digging it. There are various theories of its origin, but the most generally accepted is that it was brought down by glaciers." iMr. Harrison had some of the stuff with him, which) he says ran $2 to the ton on n assay Iby Henry E. Wood of this city. In appearance it resembles the cemented silt in some Colorado creeks to which gold is found. GOOD ARGUMENT. ryan Tells the Pennsylvanians About Money (Affairs. CHESTER, Pa., Sept. 23. A large crowd stood in he .rain here yesterday morning and listened to Bryan. He said in part: "We have .reached a crisis in our naionetbary affairs. Our financial policy Is run iby a few syndi cates in the interest of the money changers and the question presented to our 'people is whether the people shall take charge of our government and run it in their own interests, or farm it out to these syndicates to let them run it in their own interests. If our present financial policy is to he maintained, if gold is to be the only money good enough for government use when it pays bondholders, then the government, if run by those who be lieve that policy must continue to is sue bonds in order that a few may make money out of the laboring man."

Ex-Presi dent Harrison was a speaker at to day's noonday meeting at the Com mercial Travelers Sound Money league. Colonel Fred Grant presided.
