Uort Ford came in yesterday from the White Tank mountains where he has some copper and pold properties of which considerable has been said from time to time. He says his claims are looking? better every day and brought in a number of samples of very rich ore, in fact better than anything yet brought from that region. There are several groups of promising claims in the White Tanks that probably only need development to make them pro ducing mines. BETTER EVERY DAY Later Development of Ore Deposit on the Suhuaro Tfline- Workmen are busily engaged at tin Sahuuro miiiV umler the supervision t" K. O. DeWitt in stripping the ledg looking for the most favorable place to sink the exploration shaft. The limits of the ore body have not yet bt-t-ii leached, and some very high grade ore, richer than the first bis strike, has be'n uncovered. Conservative men estimate the values as running- well up into the hundreds, while large specimens can be selected which will assay several thou sand ounces of silver to the ton. It is safe o say that the average value of all the ore yet uncovered will t:aei-l ?I00 a ton, which is a remarkable show ing when one considers the enormous s-:ze of the ore body. In one or two ex ceptionally rich t-pots, we are infoimed, single shots loosened ore to the value of $500 in several Instances. Tiiousmdu are now in sight, and while the owners do not have much to say, the News Herald predicts that it w ill be hun dreds of thousands before the shaft is sunk many feet. Mr. DeWUt is going ahead with the work in a businesslike manner, which shows he understands the business. o THE UNITED GLOBE CO- Frogress of Work on the Grey Mine, It's Principal Property. 'hauncey K. Gunn. foreman, and the shaft has now reaehed the ninth level, a depth of i"it feet, and will be con tinued to the tenth level, or 1H5 feet deeper. It is hoped to complete the shaft to that depth within the year, or by February 20. 1902. Then the work of opening the lower levels will begin in earnest, and it is thought, will re quire six months' time. With the ex ception of the Old Dominion, the Grey shaft is the only three-compartment shaft in Globe district. It is a fine piece of work, beinjs well tim bered with Oregon pine and the walls are as true as a die. Considerable work has also been done in the old levels, which have heen put in good shape, and shipments or ore have been made every month to the Copper Queen company, at Hip bee, except for a short period when the Queen smelter was partially closed undergoing repairs. A new and large gallows frame, 4t feet in height, has been erected o wi the Grey shaft, to operate two cages, and as soon as the new hoisting en gine lias been installed the old gallows frame will be torn down. H. F San ders was putting the finishing touches on the foundation for the new hoist ing enijlflLC, when we were there: it is concrete, which is said to be more dura ble than stone. Thvn new hoist, man ufactured by Webster. Camp & Lane, is a double-reel, geared hoist, eapabl? of sinking 1.000 feet. Around the mouth of the shaft are asembK-d the various shops and other building required, all substantially built. These comprise the engine and boiler rooms, the dimensions of the hitler bfing 3txiH feet, and containing three .vi-hor.e power boilers; th. ma chine shop. 3ixf0 feet, well equipped with machinery and tools; blacksmith shop, litix-iO feet, a commodious change house. sawmill and other smaller buildings. The entire plant has a businesslike and durable appearance.' There are at present about 10 men on the company's payroll, which num ber will be inceraed as operations ex pand and necessity requires. The Grey mine has produced a great real of ore in the past, and is general- ly considered to be one of the -etit mines in Globe distrii t. ante.

John Laughlin, the old-time shoe maker and prospector and original dis coverer of the Canadian (now Home Uun mine, on Groom creek. In ins; t discovered a ledge on Banning creek, within two miles of Prescolt. and found it very rich in the outcropping. He gave it the name of Orbin's lielt. He employed two men to sink a shaft on it to the depth of HMf feet.

The Grey is now the principal prop erty of the United Giobe mines, owned by Phelps, Dodge & Co., who have some thirty odd claims on the Gloije copper belt, in the section immediately north of town, says the Silver Belt. Late last winter N. S. Berray took charge of the United Globe's proper ties, as superintendent, and on the L'Oth of February the work was om menced of sinking a three-compartment shaft on the Grey mine, whit h had previous been opened by a smaller shaft and also through the Hoosier ground to the sixth level. The work has progressed steadily under the direction of Superintendent Ber ray and the personal supervision of THE V.'ICKENBURG SMELTER. j George B. Upton and George E.

It is reported that a new company is to be organized to operate the Mammoth-Collins mines and mills and that Hon. George P. Blair will be the general manager. If this is true the future of this splendid property is as sured, for Mr. Blair has already dem onstrated his ability to make the prop el ty pay a handsome profit- But this profit went to maintain a useless staff and fancy offices in London, in stead of going to nay Interest, and cre ate a surplus fund to meet emergencies.

I About fifteen years ago a small ves sel, while railing in the southern part of the Ret! sea, was Injured by coming into contact with some hidden obstruc tion. As the sailors could not exactly locate the position of this danger to navigation, a vessel in the service of the British admiralty spent a fortnight in cruising up and down in the neigh borhood before the cause of the dam age was found. It was a foek pinnacle, rising in comparatively shallow water to within a few feet of the surface. Its top was only a few square feet in area. The hidden rock was, of course, marked for destruction, which was ap plied by the dynamite process. The southern part of the Red sea, from the Strait of Bab el Mandeb, which Joins it with the Indian ocean, to about Hi degrees north latitude, a distance of over iJiMj miles, has always been regarded with some anxiety by navigators. There are many islets nnd rocks of volcanic origin. Turkey hail neglected to supply lighthouses. There are three light houses near the south ern entrance to the Suez canal, and the Daedalus light crowns an islet about 100 miles south of the Gulf of Suez, but the southern waters have no adequate provision for warning sail ors against sandbanks and rocks. The dreaded Abu-Ail archipelago, a collec tion of little islands near the southern end of the Red sea. has been called the "cemetery of navigators." A little farther south are the shallow waters around the port of Mocha, which gives its name to a famous variety of coffee. In order to render navigation more secure the? Turkish government, two months ago. instructed the French ofll cials who have charge of the Ottoman lighthouses to c onstruct . four light ships. The lights on these ships, it is specified, shall be so strong as to pro ject their Illumination for a distance of thirty miles. One of them will be stationed at Mocha, and its light will be about 1T. feet above the sea level. The other lights will be placed among the islands of the southern part of the sea, where nearly all the accidents to shipping In the Red sea occur. The de tails have been entrusted to Mr. Be nard. a French engineer. New York Sun. .
