According to reports from the prop erty, says the Globe Silver Belt, they have uncovered a vein running from seven to nine feet between walls, the entire vein showing van(lanlte asso ciated with molybdtte and all panning fine gold. This ore is identical with that taken from the Mammoth mine in Pinal county. The vein outcrops the entire length of three claims and a smaller vein runs parallel to it about 100 feet dis tant. THE JUANITA STRIKE. B. F. Peters, who arrived here yes terday from the properties of the Ju anita Mining and Milling company. Is authority for the statement that the new strike recently made in the Tom and "Dick mine, is holding out well and promises to be larger than even anticipated by the management. Mr. Peters was accompanied here by Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Tilman of Grand Rapids, Michigan, who with Miss Hawley, stenographer of the live stock sanitary board at Phoenix, arrived in the camp a few days ago to see the new strike. Mrs. Tilman is very favorably Impressed with the mineral possibilities of the Tom and Dick and the other holdings of the company and believes the Juanita Is destined to grow into one of the most important mining camps in northern Arizona. Prescott Miner-Journal. PROSPEROUS LEASERS. Operation on the Lookout Mine Give Good Returns. Among the number of McCabe min ers, who have been successful In oper ating on their own account, since the closing down of the McCabe Glad stone mines, due to the cessation of operations, last fall, may be, mention ed Patrick Gallagher. Peter Laux and Laurence Keller. They are operating In partnership the Lookout mine un der bond and lease, says the Prescott Journal-Miner. The property is an extension of the Silver Belt, which has a record of production during the prosperous days of silver mining here in the hundreds of thousands of dol lars. The Silver King ores were im mensely rich in the white metal, be sides carrying values In gold and cop per. Gallagher and his partners, Laux and Keller, have a shaft down one hundred feet, from the bottom level of which three hundred feet of levels have been run. Ore !s exposed In all the openings of a good grade, which can be disposed of at a profit when the Humboldt smelter starts or the new Treight transportation rate to the Ef Paso smelters goes Into effect. Several flattering offers have been refused for the Lookout mine since the partners took It over under bond from Its former owners. Charles Ralble of this city and Philip Michler of Mc Cabe. The ore is a heavy lead ore carrying high grade values in silver. KhYSTONE PROPERTY -BOUGHT BY AMSTER Turned Over on a Basis That Meant Large Operations if AH Plans Carry. Stockholders of the Keystone Cop per company have voted to accept the offer of X. L. Amster of Boston, who agrees to pay off the mortgage and Judgment amounting to $65,000, held against the Keystone by the Old Do minion Copper Mining and Smelting company; to spend $50,000 In delevop ment work on the property In the next twelve months, at the expiration of which time he agrees to oragnlze a stock company capitalized at $3,000, 000 to take over the old company. The Keystone adjoins the Miami Copper company's holdings. Mr. Amster Is president of the Ari zona Commercial Copper company of Globe, the president of the Shannon Copper company of Clifton. He Is identified with the Interests of Payne, Webber & Co., of Boston. If the floatation of stock In Amster's new company Is successful, says the Globe Silver-Belt, $500,000 will be ap propriated for development work, $300,000 in stock in the new company will be aaid the stockholders In the Keystone and $1,000,000 worth will be retained as treasury stock. In case Amster fails to succeed In organizing the company at the expiration of the year the Keystone stockholders will return his $65,000, spent in taking up the Old Dominion mortgage and Judg ment, with 8 per cent interest: At the meeting of the stockholders Sunday, one block of one-fourth of the stock, held by J. R. Finletter, was DIARRHOEA There is no need of anyone ufler ing long with this disease, for to effect a quick cure it is only necea aary to take a few doses of Chamberlain's fiolic.

LARGE SIZE 50c. nniiii Mi;,ilm.,m,iHiy voted against the Amster offer. Fully two-thirds of the stock, however, vot ed in favor of the offer. The whole deal is subject to an examination of the title of the Keystone company. John B. Newman has made a prop osition to take up the Old Dominion mortgage and Judgment on the Key stone, but the stockholders voted down his offer. For promoting the Amster deal, W. S. Sultan, the mining "engineer, will receive a commission of $35,000. THE MORNING GLORY. Ore and lots of it Is in sight in the Morning Glory mine. Though down only one hundred feet in an Incline shaft sunk on the vein, they now have the ore six feet in width, as solid as a bullet from wall to wall. The ore is copper and silver, with considerable white iron. The Morning Glory is not a new prospect. It was worked years ago for silver. It was a grass roots" mine and was never worked to a depth of more than seventy feet. . As copper began to come In with depth and crowd the silver out, the mine was practically abandoned, except as re garded the doing of assessment work, which amounted to but little, there be ing but the one claim. The mine was the property of Mrs. Ellen Farrell of Hardhaw, from whom it was bonded a year ago by Chris Wilson of Pata gonia. Since then Mr. Wilson has done considerable work on the prop erty, and has increased his holdings to a croup of ten claims, five of which are on the vein. This month his time was up on the bond and he bought in the property. To help pay for the work being done, he Is taking out ore right along, which he hauls to Pata gonia in wagons and ships to the smelters at El Paso. With a smelter tto treat the ore, the Morning Glory would be a dividend payer from now on, as It t can be cheaply worked, be cause of the flatness of the vein and the solidity of the hanging wall, which stands without timber, other than props or stulls. Through a Tucson mining man Mr. Wilson Is now nego tiating with Boston people for the sale of the mine. . jjf . JEROME 6 PROSPEROUS. There are No Idle Men and Every body Has Money. Jerome and the mining district trib utary to It was never as prosperous as now. In addition to the United Verde mines and smelters, which are run ning In full blast, many of the other companies are prosecuting work in a large way. There are no idle men In town and everybody has money, pret ty accurately portrays the conditions that prevail here. The United Verde's big tunnel Is In 3,800 feet and the crosscut being cut from the 1,000 foot level of the mine to connect with it in 800 feet. It. will require a. little over 2,000 eet more''" driving tv make connections. Excellent progress is being made and the big bore will be of Incalculable value in the matter of rentialtion and draining the mine. The Verde Grande has almost com pleted the work of cutting a pump sta tion and sump, and within a few days will resume the work of sinking down. The pump Is on the way from the factory. The bottom of the shaft is now in an interesting mineralized formation, and further developments in sinking will be watched with keen interest. At the Sycamore the diamond drill has passed the 500-foot mark and is sinking in the formation at a better rate than was expected. The cores coming uri the past week have ail showed good mineral .values, some sections assaying as high as $550 per ton in sold. Two shifts are now at work on the Mescal tunnel, which is in about 600 feet. The Arkansas and Arizona, aft er a few days' shutdown to make needed repairs. Is driving ahead again in its tunnel. At the Cleopatra more miners have been taken on and con siderable ore is being mined every day. Experienced mining men who have ex amined this property think that the ore deposit tapped in the tunnel at a depth of nearly 1.000 feet will extend almost to the surface. o CALIFORNIA ORES fOR OLD DOMINION Worlds of Sulphide on Land But Oth er ores are Needed tor riuxmg. The Old Dominion Copper Mining and Smelting company will ship the teams used at the Continental mine to mines in California about May 15, where the Old Dominion will secure sulphur ores for fluxing the great va riety of ores they are handling at this time. Although the Old Dominion has ex ceeded its expectations in developing sulphide copper ore in its chief mine, says the Globe Silver-Belt, the management has closed contracts with mines above Bakersfield. Cal., for a grade of sulphide that will be better adapted to the needs of the Old Do minion, reducing the cost of smelt ing. For rears the Old Dominion has been receiving sulphide ore from Nac ozari, Mex.. but a better grade of sul phide ore has been secured from the Dalton mines that will afford a more enocnomlcal smelting cost than for merly. Forty head of the Old Dominion teams will be shipped with two cars of wagons about the 15th to trans port the ores from the mines to Dal ton, and 100 tons of ore will be ship ped from that point daily. The Old Dominion will probably sink a new shaft at the Contiental mine The old shaft is down 200 feet and all the ore above the 200 level has been stoped out. The Contiental is gener ally considered a very rich sulphide property and with the opening of new ground and the sinking of the old shaft it is expected that vast bodies of sulphides will be opened up. The mine up to the present time has been shipping copper sulphides running 20 per cent and better. . MORE TIME GRANTED. Easier Payments to Be Made by the C and A. For Casey Group. Martin Costello haR granted an ex tension of time on the option held by the Calumet & Arizona Mining com pany in the name of L. W. Powell on the Casey group of mining claims in ,the Turquoise mining district and which group adjoins the Leadville group which was recently under bond to the company and was allowed to expire. According to the agreement the or iginal bond called lor the payment of $150,000 on which the sum of $16,000 has already been paid. The time has been extended from September until March 30th of next year, but provides that the sum of $35,000 shall be paid on or before the 30th of September of this year and the. balance $100,000 to be paid on or before the 30th of March, 1909. The group consists of the fol lowing claims: ' Black Hawk, Smile of Fortune, Hard Up, Tin Horn and Head Center. This group is the one that has been operated by the company since October of last year and on which the company has opened up several good bodies of sulphide and carbonate ores and at the present time have a force of men at work opening up other bodies under the direction of Superintendent J. H. Talbot. Besides working this group the company Is at work on two claims that were recently bonded from Wil liam Go wan and William Stevenson, known as the Germania group, and on which the company has also discovered good bodies of carbonate ore. The bond on the latter claims call for $65. 060 on 'which sum a payment of ten per cent was made at the time of he signing of the option which was about thirty days slnce.Bisbee Review. RICH GOLD STRIKE. With a ledge ol $250 ore five feet wide and with every Indication that it is a true vein, Fred Genung and Al Welsling, owners of the Crackerjack mine located sixteen miles south of Curtin's station on the S. F. P. & P. railroad, are high in hopes of de veloping into future millionaires. The tunnel is straight into the big ore body, a bluish tellurium, with every indication of an immense ore body of great richness ahead. The rich strike was made last Monday, but it was not until Frldar, when an assay of the bluish rock was made In Prescott, that the owners knew of the bonanza they had found. They own three claims with many croppings similar to the one which 170 feet In which was struck the five-foot lead of $250 rock. The tunnel, which is now. in 176 feet, has been in average pay dirt for 106 feet. The main- ledge runs east and west with a dip of forty-five feet to the north. The owners have another shaft fifty feet deep showing ore of fair average milling all the way. Journal Miner. TOMBSTONE DISTRICT. There Is a Lot Doing Beside the Work Of the Consolidated. Outside of the work being done by the Tombstone Consolidated company In that district, there is considerable mining activity, says the Tombstone Prospector. The Townslte company, which Is composed of local people, is at work on its group that adjoins the Hershal, and at present has sunk a shaft on the Townsite claim over 100 feet, since operations began a few months ago It is the intention of the company to sink the shaft to a depth of about 400 feet with the hope of striking the ledge that has been uncovered in the Hershal and which is known to dip in the direction of the Townsite shaft. The present shaft is now down be tween 200 and 300 feet, and several small stringers of ore similar to the Hershal ledge have been encountered In the shaft. The management is very much encouraged over the showing that has been made, and that in a few weeks they will have opened up ore bodies that will reward them for the work that they have so far executed. Work at the Hershal continues un interrupted and regular shipments are being made to the El Paso smelter. The ore in this property carries high values In both lead and sliver and the property has been making excellent returns to the company, which is composed of local and El Paso people. The property has onlybeen opened up to a depth of 600 feet, but in that depth has proven that the property Is one of the richest to be found In the Tombstone district. During the past few weeks a number of new ore bodies have been opened up that promise to materially increase the shipments to the smelters. Jo Bishop, who last week secured a two years' lease on the Bonanza prop erty from Col. William Herring, has started, work and in a few days will give employment to a number of miners. It is his intention to sink a new shaft on the property, as the old shaft has caved in to such an extent that it could not be repaired without great expense. The former workings opened up some exceedingly rich ore bodies of lead and silver, and those who are acquainted with the property are of the opinion that Mr. Bishop will be able to open up other ore bodies that will net him good returns. This property is located In the State of Maine district and will be the means of renewing activity in that section of the district. The Tombstone Gold, Sliver & Cop per company has a force of men at work on its property in the canyon, south and east of the Emerald, and is doing some extensive development work. Since active work has been started on the sinking of a new shaft on the Silver Plume property of the T. C. M. Co., to tap the copper ore bodies open ed up on the 800-foot level of the Emerald, the surrounding country has been located and a number of locaters are busy doing the required location work. Work is progressing most steadily on the tunnel that is being driven on the claims of the cochise Gold and Silver company and excellent head way has been made by the contractors during the past thirty days. .Frank Winters Is doing well on his property near the old Last Chance, and has made shipments to the El Paso smelter that have netted him good returns.

TF5 SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, CA, which has 100 members, hns let the contract for the erection of a miners' union hall at Gibson's copper camp, twenty miles north of Globe. J. C. McBlroy, the contractor, will leave this morning with lumber for the new building. The hall will be 20x40 feet, a frame building costing about $2,000. Work will begin on th ebulldlng about the first of next week. Belt. The Arizona Copper company has Just received several carloads of eight-inch pipe which will be used for piping the tailings from the concen trator to the lower part of Hill's flat. This new system will be Introduced in order to prevent the dumping of tail ings Into the river as has been the custom in past : years. The pipe is now being unloaded and no doubt will be laid within a comparatively short time. It is reported the work will al so be commenced on the slagwall around Hill's addition in the near fu ture. Copper Era, Clilton. S. S. Campbell, of Boston, has been a visitor here for the past week, dur ing which time he has made several trips to the Lone Star mines of which he is general manager. He expresses himself as being well pleased with the present showings, and will continue pushing the work of developing the property, and opening up the ore bodies already uncovered. He is also well under way with his smelter and ore reduction enterprise. This new company, the name of which is the Arizona & Bostin Emelting & Reduc tion Co., Is now preparatory for the erection of a large smelting and con centrating plant. This plant will be fully equipped, and up to date in every respect, and will do a general cus tom business. The installation of a smelter and reduction plant will re quire the . building of about sixteen miles of railroad. The survey for this is now under way, and it is said will be completed soon,, when the Gila river will be bridged and a spur run from Safford to the Lone Star mines. Journal, Safford. "Rich ore and a plenty of it is be ing taken out of the Savoy Mining company's holdings." said Lester Jack son to the Journal Miner. "The mine, which appears to be on the Grey Eagle vein .considered -one. -at . -the mother lodes of the Bradshaw moun tains, is developed to a depth of 600 feet below the apex of the ledge. One important feature of the property is that the ore increases in value as depth Is gained, as some of the rich est ore, carrying over 1.000 ounces to the ton, ever taken out of the property is now being mined in the bottom of the present workings. THE PATAGONIA DISTRICT Fifteen men are now employed at the camp of the Four Metals mining company. In the Patagonia mountains. and preparations are being made to in crease this force in the near future. On Guapalote flat, near a surface out cropping of gold bearing quartz, a shaft is being sunk 200 feet. The shaft Is now down almost one hundred feet. A whim is used for hoisting and two shifts are at work. Another shift will soon be put on. Test pits sunk at different points along the outcrop ping, which is traceable along the sur face for 7000 feet, show good gold val ues. On another claim the company Is running a tunnel to cut another vein, which, on the surface, runs high in gold. The vein is a quartz porphyry and a great outcropping of It runs across the butte In which the tunnel Is being driven. The butte Is so steep that running the tunnel 650 feet will give them a depth of 600 feet. The tunnel is now in four hundred feet. The two shifts are working in it, and a third shift will soon be put to work. A new blacksmith and carpenter shop, a stable and a warehouse are being built and a number of new tent houses will be erected for the employes. The Silver Glance shaft at the Na tional Consolidated Mining company's camp, in the Patagonia mountains, is now down seventy-five feet. A hoist is now on the way to the mine and sinking has been discontinued till the installation of the hoist. In the mean time ore is being taken out at the 100 foot level and sacked for shipment The hoist is within two miles of the mine, but the haul up the gulch was found to be so heavy that a road is being graded around the hillside, a distance of two miles, and the grading will require another week's time. When the hoist Is installed the whim now in use will be moved to the First national claim, another or the same group, where a shaft Is now down for ty feet on a lead of gold bearing quartz. The vein at this claim shows a width on the surface of five and a half feet. The shaft, and incline, will be sunk two hundred feet.

Worden recently purchased an interest in the San Carlos Copper and Lead company, whose property la lorated on the San Carlos strip. "We have plenty of copper ore now that will pay to ship at good prices and the property Is scarcely develop ed at all," said Worden. "At the out set of the organization of the company it was intended to work the property for Barium for there are large depoa its of it on the property and it is a very valuable mineral. It is now the inten tion of the company to put In machin ery and manufacture white lead from the Barium. There is only one other white lead company in the west and that Is in St. Louis. Judging from the satistics that we have gathered, the project should be a good one." W. H. Worden and D. L Melov are interested in eleven copper claims in the Pinal district. "The deepest work that we have on the property is thirty-three fuet of shaft in a twenty foot ledKe," said Worden yesterday. "At thirty-three feet we have sulphide coppt-r ore that will average 6 1-2 per cent. The entire ledge of twenty feet is spotted with the copper sulpide and with depth it is probable that the en tire ledee will be in sulphide. The claims are bounded by the old Bow man silver mine, which has a 125 foot shaft and from which a fortune in sil ver was taken. The formation of the wall rock Is lime and prophyry and there is an iron capping on the claims that covers ap proximately 400 feet of almost mallea ble iron. We have a good wagon road to the work and we intend to develop the property as rapidly as possible." Globe Silver Belt.
