8 .- r THE MINING INDUSTRY IN AND AROUND CLIFTON Latest Comment cn Graham County's Biggest Mines. The latst issue of the Clifion Cop per Era contains the following: A Mk strike of rich ore was recently made by the A. C. company on the south bank of Chase creek at Longfel low, where they had been quarrying out silica for converter linings for some time pst. The property is only a few hundred feet from the property of the Chase Creek company, and con firms the opinion of many that the load extends through the claims of that company. Climo that 1,000,000 tons of ore are in sight in the mine which Is a most re markable showing especially considcr ering the fact that the mine has been drawn on even since the strike for 500 tons daily. Several new ore bodies are being developed some of viiich arc; hish grade. C. A. Ross, president of the Standard Consolidated Copper company has ar rived from the east and will be busy for a few days explaining the merger to the many Standard stockholders. There is a rumor in circulation to the effect t:iat the merger of the Stan dard, San Jost and Coronado compan ies by which AV. H. Thompson was re lieved of the responsibility of manag ing the affairs of the San Jose and the Coronado. will cause Mr. Thomp son to seek a new field for his energy. Mr. Thompson has heen a potent fac tor in the upbuilding of this district as he has been instrumental in bringing in much capital and while he has been personally benefited thereby he has at the same time been a benefit to the entire community. The Era regrets his departure from this district and wishes him well in his future enterprises. Ernest Krye. one of the best prospec ors of this district was in this week from the headwaters of Sardine creek about eight miles north of Metcalf where he has been doing some assess ment work for some Texas people. He brought in a specimen that was as the miners say "lousy with gold." The specimen came from a talc gouge on cither side of a 15 inch lead of go'd liiartz. The specimen would be hard to beat in any country. The owners of the property have been deling the assessment work for twelve years and this is the first free go'.d found on the claims. The work heretofore had been done on the streaks of rich ore. It takes an old time prospector to find gold anyway. A suflicient amount of work has not been done to determine the value of the strike, but it will not require very much of the same class of ore Mr. Krye brought in to make the property very valuable S. S. Campbell who promoted the Chase Creek Copper company about eighteen months ago, arrived in Clif ton last week to inspect work on the company's property which consists of more than .forty claims lying in a solid body between Longfellow and the claims of the New England company. A tunnel has been driven in over 400 feet from Chase creek on one of the claims upon which work has been done r.nd which will be continued until the tunnel lias been driven several thous and feet which will cut several, large leads which run through the various claims. This tunnel is the lowest in the camp, being 1200 feet lower than the tunnel driven by the Clifton Con solidated. It is pointing directly to ward the New England Claims and if continued beneath them it will give them an outlet on the Chase creek und tap their ore bodies at a depth of 2000 feet. Mr Campbell is quite en thusiastic over the outlook of the Chase Creek company. He realizes, as do the eastern stockholders, that they have a splendid property most advan tageously situated for economical working through their tunnel which will cut the first mineral vein in about 400 feet. The tunnel is an ideal piec of work and it is gaining depth at the rate of one foot for every foot driven. Four car loads of machinery are on the grcund ar.d more Is expected in the near future. A hoist for sinking the shaft deeper is on the ground and sinking will be rushed after the ore bins are completed to hold the ore taken out In sinking. This will be be gun In a few days. The shaft Is down 200 feet and it will be sunk, to the 500 foct level as soon as possible In order to give more room for the employ ment of a large force of miners. So much has been said from time to time of the richness of the Black Kock ore that it is scarcely necessary to repeat that at the 200-foot level there is a well defined vein full thirty in ches in width. The quartz is literally specked with sulphides and runs very rich in gold, as well as carrying con siderable values in galena and silver. Considering the high values and go.:d indications for a continuation of the vein, as well as the careful manage ment of Mr. Bellinger, the Black Kock mine ought to be among diviueiiu payers by the end of the year just be ginning. r GOLD TREASURE MINE. Grading Fcr a Twenty Stamp Mill Six Miles From Naco. IMPORTANT MINING DEAL. Twenty Claims Near Center of Globe Copper Belt Bonded. Wm. Climo. superintendent of the Shannon mine, managed to find time to visit Clifton this week. Mr. Climo is a thoroughly practical mining man having acquired his knowledge through every day contact with mother nature. He has been in charge of the mine since the Shannon people assumed charge. Under Mr. Climo's man agement something like seven n.iles of development work has ben done and it is now estimated by Mr. BLACK ROCK MINE. Good Work Has Been Done, More Is Now in Progress. The Black Rick Mining company, opeiating near Castellation, Ariz.. Is attracting a great deal of attention in the "U'ickenburg section, says the News-Herald of Martinez. Mr. Ballin ger, the president and general mana ger. Is a man of considerable experi ence and has had the proper training to know how to operate a mine eco nomically and successfully. J. K. Murphy has had charge of the work for a long while, and has suc ceeded in opening up a good locking thing. Mr. Bellinger has been on the ground in person for the last two mcnths and is seeing that everything is properly done. A good force of prac tical mecharics is at work fit the mine. They have erected cottages for the families of the employees and have chnrge of their own bi-arding house and commissary. Excavations for the mill have been completed and the erec tion of stock bins Is being pushed. In fact, appearances around the camp are beginning to look like a big mine wculd soon be in opera ticn there. Ev erything has a businesslike appearance and, unless some accident happens, th min? will soon be In successful opera-tior. Last week Mr. Leach and Mr. Bisbc, representing the Arizona Mining and Development Co., the present owners of the Gold Tieasure mines in the San Jose mountains, arrived in Naco and announced they were there to begin work preparatory to the installation of milling machinery at the mines, about six miles distant, in the San Jose Mountains, across the line in Sonora. This assertion was backed up, says the Bisbee Review, by the simultaneous arrival of two cars of material from Oklahoma, the home office of the com pany, and the employment of men to do the work. During the present week the site for the mill was selected and with horses and mules brought from Oklahoma grading for the foundation of the mill was started. Supplies and camp outfits are being hauled to th mine from Naco, and by the time the camp is established and the founda tions laid the 20-stamp miil will be on the ground. It is a well known fact that the property of the Arizona Mining and Development Co. is sufficiently devel oped to warrant the erection of the mill, and from the roports of experts it has been estimated that there is enough ore in sight to run a twenty stamp mill for a period of live years. There is no longer any doubt but that the Arizona Mining and Devel opment Co. mean business. Before the mill was ordered several tons of the ore were shipped to Denver f:r a test run to enable the managomnt to determine exactly the proper treat ment necessary for extracting the val ues, which are principally gold As says have always ranged between twelve and eight dollars in gold per ton, and before the year has very far advanced the (lold Treasure mine, un der the management of Mr. Jones, will be added to the list of active producers.

The total considers- tion named in the deeds is $200,000, and the remaining payments are to be j made in installments in four, six and twelve months. ; Included In this deal Is tha group of twelve claims owned by Chas. E. Tay- . lor and others, situated on the top and north side of Buffalc hill and run ning northeast, and adjoining some of the best mines cf the United Globe, and not far from the Old Dominion, j The development cf the Taylor group consists of a crosscut tunnel on the Bobby Burns, which has cut two different veins at a shallow depth, I from which several small shipments of ore assaying up to 30 per cent ccp per have been made; a shaft 100 feet deep on the Tip Top claim sunk cn the vein, which shows in the bottom, a strong iron ledge, with an indication f ! nn ore b:dy at greater depth: a 120 foot shaft on the Tip Top No., 2, the last thirty feet being in ore yarying from one to four feet wide, of which about T.'i t:ns have been mined, and which assayed ID ps.r cent coyr in carlaa''' lots. ; The Bird group of eight claims al- I so figure in the transaction. They yre owned by William Stevenson, Henry Shoap, Winthrop House and Mrs. Lizzie H:usd. The group is bounded on J the northeast by the Big Johnny mine of the United Globe, oa the east by the Iron Cap group and the Copper Hill piopErty, and on the south and southeast by the Taylor grtup. The development of the Bird group crnsists of several prospect shafts on the different claims, showing a nura btr of well-ucf.ned veins, and a shaft 185 feet in d pth on the Bird claim' which shows a gc;od pay streak from the 'surface, incrc-arirg In width and inproving in the percentage1 cf cop per in the ore as depth is attained, the ere being a copper and iron oxide, very desirable for smelting, although this ore is expected to change to sul phide within the next 100 feet.

A dentist in Colombia named Theo phile Borraro came to me one day and asked if I wanted to buy some gold I said yes and he unwrapped a bundle and showed me about a pound of gold teeth fillings, some of which still hail fragments of teeth still .sticking to them. -Where did you get them," I asked in horrified amazement. "I got tome of them in the fiht f" San Jose," he replied, "and the rest were got by a government colonel in the last engagement at Buenaventrra." "But how did you get them out?" "We just knocked them out with bayonets and t.e butt-ends of rfies. The soldiers did that to ail the bodies and I bought the gold for a mere tri l.e." World Work.

I If there are 100,000 millionaires in the r United States, as Senator Depew said ! at the dinner giveh iy John D. Rocke j feller. Jr., to his Bible class, an official of a great commercial agency and the I president of one of New York's richest banks are decidedly in error. Both ' placed the number of millionaires in i the entile world at 10,000. There are ! 7000 in the United States, and 1000 of j these live In Ne' York city, whether they pay taxes here or not. The finan- i cial Red Book, a most carefully com- ' piled publication, gives the names of j practically all per?on3 in tne United j States who are supposed to be worth , more than $300,000. And there are only j 15,000 names cn the list. No claim is I made that the name of every person; wcrth that much cr more is given, ' but the proportion of those lefout is. extremely small, for a most exhaustive investigation has been- made. "There'rrvay be a few more thxn 7000 millionaires in the United States," said : the official of the commercial agency, "I doubt it. however. I also doubt if. there are more than 1000 millionaires- in ! New York. It is absolutely impossible j to tell accurately. It may seem strange . that we should be unable to tell, es- socially when wo are engaged In find- i ing out how much a man is worth and. giving such Information to our sub- scribers. But in the last few years I there has been a marked tendency1 among men of wealth to conceal the amount of their worldly possessions. The first incentive In this respect is the vu'gar prominence given to the man who Ivis lots of money. "There are other reasons men have for suppressing knowledge of the amount of their wealth. Some wish to avoid heavy taxation, and give false re turn?. Another man may have made his money In a business not commonly supposed to be especially lucrative, and he does not care to have his affluence blazoned forth to arouse competition. There are also some rich politicians, but it might arouse suspicioni if they stated the exact amount of their wealth. And there Is another class the men that have made their piles in callings that would be frowned down upon in tin1 circles they wish to enter; proprietors of gambling houses, saloon kce.oers, owners of dives ar.d other re sorts. They don't care to have others know how much they have accumulat ed. "So. while it Is impossible for us to tell exactly how many millionaires there are, we would not take the num ber of those who are known to possess a thousand thousands at least, and then multiply the number by ten. For that is what Mr. Depew seems to hive don in his anxiety to urge Mr. Rockefeller' young men to get rich."--New York Tress. ,v When the Philippine Islands fell in to our bosom there were supposed Vi be about ten millions of natives there in, though the census statistics were meager, and, according to the Spanish methods, based on bai guesses rather than rear enumeration. Every llm! a count, or close estimate has been made the number has decreased, until now. according to our esteemed contempor ary, the Manila Freedom, the t'tal is less than seven millions. This ought to be a 'Joy to- the "anti-lmperSalists" (self-styled), who made fo much out of the. statement that we bought ten million." of natives cf Spain at $2 per head. They can now figure out that the price was almost $3 per head, thus th moral Iniquity was so much the great er. In fact, fifty per cent. Well, we have been in those islands a little over five years, and the ac count of stock shows a good balance to the side of decency and better civ ilization. The situation was bad when we got there, and there Is now no claim that th Philippines spell para dise or that the millennium has been set up there. That la what our friends. Gamaliel Bradford, Edward Atkinson, cx-SecYetary Bout well, Carl Schurz, and Senator Hoar are complaining about. They think that we ought tri have accomplished miracles and set up the new dispensation in its com pleteness on the barren soil of the Pa cific islands. They d not complain that the millennium has not been es tablished in Boston or Worcester. They do net want it to come near them, for then their occupation would b" gone. What they do want is a rhancA to growl and be heard. Therefore they spend their time throwing bricks through the windows and making a great Filr In the wcrld. In the mean time the most modest estimates make the condition of the Filipinos so Ines timably in advanee of anything they have ever known before that there I really no chance for comparison. If there Is any growl at all to be made, it is that administration in the Phil ippines cn lh-3 whole seems to be ra ther better than it is herePhiladel phia Inquirer. Slightly Rattled.
