(By Tom Shultr.) Parker. Ariz., Feb. IS. (Special Cor respondence of The Republican.); An other mining sale was consummated last week and again the credit of the district in which the property Is lo cated goes to Bendigo, Riverside mountains, about twenty miles south west of Parker. The property Is known as the Alice group and was owned by Messrs. Sanborn, Butler and Vaughn. John Sanborn was the first owner by discovery. Messrs. Butler and Vaughn becoming interested later. The prop erty has developed an excellent body of high grade copper-gold ore and is claimed by those who have recently visited It as being one of the finest rrospects In the country- B. L. Vaughn of Needles negotiated the deal, whereby himself and partners re ceived a substantial payment down, a large payment to follow within thir ty days and the balance, making in all $73,00, within a reasonable time. This property is located about three miles northwest of the Newman mine, which recently sold for $100,000. The new owner of the Alice, better known as the Sanborn property, is Colonel Hop kins of Boston, Mass. The gentleman Is largely Identified with Searchlight, Nev.. and It Is stated that extensive development ia to be inaugurated at once. GREEN GOBBLER GROUP. This property ' Is more generally known as the Newman group and was discovered In February, 1904, by P. H. Newman and his half-brother, G. A. Cook, and A. Strauss. In the records, C. A. Moody of Los Angeles became an equal owner. The property Is located high on the east side of the Riverside range in Bendigo mining district and its surface is distinctly .noticeable from the Colorado river, less than one and one-half miles distant. The formation is principally lime and schist, both of which have undergone various changes In the cycles past. It anumes a northwest by southwest trend, the lime lying above the schist. A large porphyry dike runs true with the contact, out of which for a dis tance of over 1,500 feet numerous blow-outs of Iron have been found. In every Instance where prospected, rich copper ore carrying good gold values has been found In these blow-outs. Where the main workings are located, the Iron blow-out Is nearly 100 feet in diameter. From the shaft, which is now down 180 feet, forty tons of ore have been extracted. Ten tons of this ore were shipped to S-lby Smelting company of San Francisco, which gave a return of $100 a ton, and there Is now sacked and lying at the landing on the -river another shipment of ten tons equally as good. There are also on the dump twenty tons, which, while not as rich , Is still very good ore. This speaks well for the deepest working on the property. espec;ally so when it is understood that, with the exception of carbonates, which are more or less Irregular, the ore is principally oxides, and that gold is steadily increasing and has been from the 100-foot level. At the bot tom of the shaft a sample was taken from a two-foot Klreak, and the writer saw the assay return, which ran over $!M0 In' gold and copper. A selected sample assayed over $1,600. Above the porphyry dike a large up heaval of quartzlte. heavily impreg nated with iron, shows very conspicu ously and attracts the attention of the passerby on account of its distinct color from that of the surrounding vi cinity. It was this red and white for- PARKER Mystery of - - - - matlon that first attracted the atten-i tion of Mr. Newman from his camp on the river, and from the first stroke of the pick he believed he had found a mine. The iron-porphyry dike pitches toward the said quartzlte at a dip of about thirty degrees, and when they come in contact, the distance of which will best be determined by sinking, large bodies of ore and the making of the mine may be expected. As pre viously reported, Mr. Newman and partners have received already $20,000, and the balance, or $30,000, is expected to be paid within the coming week. Considerable development has been performed this winter, every foot of which has proven better with depth as the report of a recent expert ex amination will show and leads to the conclusion that the final payment will be made as tated. When this final payment is made the property goes to New York parties, and It is believed that It will be extensively de veloped through a close corporation. DOWN THE COLORADO. To stand on its banks and look down on the sleepy old Colorado river, one would actually not take it for much of a creek, and perhaps It Is or little moment to old-timers who have navi gated it for years, but to a land lubber, and an Arizona land lubber at that, it Is a horse of another color, as the writer will readily testify. Last Sat urday Peter Walters secured a three sided box, sixteen feet long by four feet wide, square at both ends and called a scow, which he loaded with about 1.S00 pounds of supplies. Then with James Walters, William E. Teague and the writer, Mr. Walters, Sr.. cut afloat, and down the river we went, destined for the Walters mine home, below the river point of the Riverside range, some thirty or more miles by water line from Parker. The forenoon was cloudy and there was not a bit of wind. Now and then when the box drifted out of the cur rent a few strokes of the oars by Wal ters and Teague would place It right again. Jocularly, James Walters and William Teague .were dubbed slde wheelers, Peter Walters as- pilot, the writer as Teddy Roosevelt, who. with McKelvy's ten-bore, double-barreled Parger and thirty pounds of. shells, certainly looked the assignment, and was prepared for anything that might show up, whether it was a Bouse "boomer" on land or one of its "boom lets" trying to cross the river. Many flocks of ducks and geese were seen in the course of the Journey, but being wise to things afloat on the river they would size up our floating battery and take wing long before even a chance shot was reached, being very careful in their going not to de crease the distance. While the river is very low at this time, those old navigators, Teague and Walters, 'stated they never saw the channel better. This must be so, as the trip was made in six hours, with out touching a sand bar, though this may have been prevnted by the splen did idiots aboard, who are well ac quainted with the eccentricities of this murky old stream. A great many people from Needles and other points visit Palo Verde and the Blythe estate by boat and on as far as Laguna dam, forty miles this side of Yuma. It is very fine going down stream, providing there is no heavy head winds; then it is different, and generally means a tie-up along shore until thev Bubside. It Is Inter esting enough, though, any time to the average tenderfoot. AUTO VS. BURRO. The sad-eyed burro. And the pesky mule. Will find no friend This day In school; As the sharp, merry bray Arid the bassos that bind Are silenced by the honks That come down the line. The passing of this patient little an imal, the advance guard, in truth, of civilization, is now merely a question of a Htle time. For years it has been his privilege to lead the prospector through the desert waste and into the arid mountain fastnesses far from the habitation of man. It looks simple enough now to the newcomer who rides Into the center of America's Sahara on the cushions of a Pullman or flits across the cacti-sanded plains in an automobile. Where would he have been thirty or forty yeasr ago? Then it was that the burro filled the place of the locomotive and the automobile, followed by his half-brother, the mule, who strung out before the prairie schooner, freighted ore from mines tributary to Parker, viz.; Mineral Rill, Carnation and others, to landings on the river, from whence the same was shipped to Swansea, Wales,' for re duction. A few weeks since the Needles-Parker Transportation Company put on a seven-passenger auto to "ply for traffic between the two towns. Last Sunday no less than five of these big wind splitters were at one time gathered at Parker landing, one of which has be come a fixture on this side of the river. This machine was recently pur- chased by E. S. Osborne, the Bill Wi liams mining man, in Los Ang and arrived on the above date. It cost $3,050. It ia a seven-passenger; forty horse power, four-cylinder, "two-cycle, ESmore model. No. 44. Mr. Osborne, accompanied by H. Klnslow, chauffeur and machinist, and D. J. Bastanchury, the representative of the Elmore Motor Car Company of Los Angeles, ran the machine from Needles. On arrival at Parker, in lieu of a ferry, the auto took the bridge and was the first not only to have that honor, but also the first to dust California avenue In the metropolis on the banks of the Colo rado. It Is the pride of Parker, though it is for the mines tributary, and only requires twenty or thirty minutes to cover a distance that by buggy takes several hours. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY. W. C. Gcrrin and assintants- have about completed the survey of Parker Quadrangle. lt Is for tha making of a topographical map, embracing about 1.000 square miles in area, with Parker located in the south central part, and is drawn on 1-90,000 scale, with 50-foot contour Interval. This map will give all permanent watering places, drains, roads, trails, houses, developed mines, and an outline of the mountains in general, with their names. After the completion of this part of the map, the government will send an expert geologist over the field, who will place In correct position on the map the geological and mineralogical conditions as they exist The forma tion will also be an Important feature. The survey of the quadrangle will be completed by the first of April, but it will be fully eighteen" months there after before a copy can be secured.

LIQUOR TRAFFIC. The Express Companies Need Not En gage in It. Washington, D. C. Feb. 12 That express companies can not be com pelled1 to perform "C. O. ." service for the liquor traffic was held by the In terstate commerce commission yester day In the case of the Royal Brewing company against the Adams Express company. The express company had establish ed a rule against collecting for ship pers the purchase price of intoxicating liquors. This is upheld. o RUSSIAN GRAFT. St. Petersburg, Feb. 12. Irregulari ties to the amount of more than $1,- 000,000 have been discovered as a re sult of an investigation which Senator Garin ia making of the army quarter master. Several high officials are reported as implicated in the irregularities. FERRY BUSY AT Six Hundred Teams and 1400 People Crossed in January REPAIRS OH CEMENT MILL Plant is Again in First Class Condition-Elks Ball - Planned, the President and the Legislature Invited. New Gold Strikes. Roosevelt, Feb. 11. (Special corre spondence of The Republican.) The heights of the face of the dam still remains the same as given lust week to-wit; highest, 108; middle, 90; and lowest, 70 feet. Notwithstanding this work has been progressing as fast as ever. The back section of the dam has been receiving the attention of the force at work on the dam. This Is rapidly being filled up to the face level and we expect to be able to change our table of heights as above shown by our next letter. The lake still shows up a large area of water, but is lower. It being at pres ent about 46 feet at the dam. In depth. It has been falling fast lately until the last 24 hours, since which time it has held its own, owing to rains in the upper country. Several showers visited us during this after noon, but show prospects of clearing up. The weather has been quite cold here lately with pretty hard frosts every morning; while the breezes from the surrounding mountains con tinue to chill the air during the day. The cement mill, which was dafm- aged in part, by fire awhile back, has been gone over thoroughly and is now In better shape than before the fire. The roof that suffered most has all been retlmbered, new bins have taken the place of those destroyed. Damaged machinery has been replac ed by new, wherever it was neces sary. The 20 barrel oil tank has been moved back to a safer position from the fire and heat of the burners and the mill had a thorough cleaning up. In the meantime"""the grinding of ce ment has gone steadily on since the starting up again of the plant. At the machine shop they are busy with the reconstruction of the hoist that was damaged by the fire and also changing a steam air compressor into one to be operated by electricity. I At the carpenter shop which has had quite a large force of men em ploved for several months, they have during the last ten days been rapidly thinning down to a normal working force, as all the rush work has been completed and only that which springs up from day to day is left to keep the men busy. At the mess house they have been quite busy lately changing help, sev eral hands,, who are composed of Japanes(varriving and departing dur ing ti6 week. Those arriving came mqxtly front Phoenix and those de parting went to Globe. The ferry is doing quite a business since the water got high enough to start it. Mr. DePew, who runs it and who had to wait two or three months to get started, thought he had a snap for a while, but since actual business began in his line has had" more than his share of work to attend to. Some 600 teams and 1400 people being ferried .across during the month of January. Just now, with the lake at about half its former height the landing on either side" is rather bad on account of the mud left by the receding waters. Invitations are out for the' First an nual ball, given by the resident Elks of Roosevelt, to occur on the 22nd of February; taking place at Recrea tion hall, O'Rourke's camp. Invita tions were extended to Brother lodges throughout the east, while a special one was sent to Theodore Roosevelt, Washington, D. C. The legislature was invited to attend in a body. It is expected and Sincerely hoped that a large eastern delegation win De present, headed by our chief magis trate, President Roosevelt, who has the honor of having the project here bear his name. T Craigsmere . The various committees are head ed by the following chairmen: Reception Committee J. M. O'Rourke and Ed Caffrey. Committee of Arrangements Otis L. Mclntyre. Floor Committee S. B. Henderson. Committee on Decoration Mrs. Geo. Steinmetz. Samuel V.'. Bagley, president; C. F. Gray, secretary and treasurer. We have been promised 8, list of the bill of fare, which will be ready for our next letter. The boys mean to make a record and have a Jolly good time and let their friends have one, too, and we know they will, for they are a Jolly good lot of fellows, any way. Success to the Elks' ball. Professor Knox, professor of men tal science, and president and founder of Brentnar colloge, Seattle, Wash., Is billed for Roosevelt Thursday next, coming from Globe and from Roose velt on to Phoenix. It Is expected that he will deliver a lecture on men tal science here. At Phoenix classes will be formed, the course running some ten days, with five free lec tures. Mr. Knox claims to have classes during the year In every place of size west of the Missouri, which takes some ten months of his time in travel during the year. The other two months are spent at his home in Seattle, Wash., with short trips into British Columbia during that time. He has just completed his class at Globe. Mr. De Saffrey and wife are now on their way to Phoe- nix as advance agents for Mr. Knox. Mr. L. L. Steadman, who recently found indications of gold-bearing ore, still continues to hold down his Job at the cement mill, wisely concluding that cement pays better in the hand than an unprospected prospect whose surroundings look good to the metal lurgical eye, but whose vein of gold bearing quartz has not yet developed any gold. ' S. S. Thompson and wife have been doing a Mttle quiet prospecting on the side and found an immensely rich mine of galena ore, only it turned out to be electrolized iron or some such blame thing, according to Judge Evans and several other ex perts. Needless to say, Mr. Thomp son went back to work for wages again. The Tonto country was well rep resented here today, Francis Packard, who has a store at his home ranch, coming in for a supply of goods. J. Boyne Henderson, a chicken fancier from the Tonto, also got hungry and came in for a grub supply. D. Solomon of Cline wandered in yesterday with a beard ten inches long. He was caught by the local barber and narrowly escaped with about two inches of it left on his face. He seemed happy and smiling as ever, despite his loss. Joe Phelps took a trip to Payson today to regulate his stage line be tween here and that point. Lou Asbury of the Mest stage line, had quite a time getting out of Roosevelt on his run this morning, having to make two starts before he finally succeeded. His first one was on time, all right, but when out to the third mile- post the axle broke and Lou had to return for an other rig. Happily, one for two horses, and used as an extra for the Payson line, was on hand, and hitch ing his four to this, he succeeded in making his getaway, but two hours late. His four passengers, when they get to Mesa, will doubtless have no complaint to make for slow traveling. as, when last seen, they were cutting a blue streak tnrougn me atmos phere. Elmer Edwards, Anthony Maurei and Harrison Maurei passed through Roosevelt, Thursday, on their way from Globe to Tempe in a private rig. Mr. Anthony Maurei is on his way back to school at the iempe Normal, after a few weeks' absence on account of sickness. Miss Roxie Solomon and her sister. Mrs. Maetrie Aulbriton, accompanied their father, Mr. Solomon, to Roose velt, Thursday, fronj their ranch up Tonto. Mr. Solomon and Miss Roxie returned the same day, but Mrs. Aul- briton expects to remain for some tlme Mr. E. M. Brown of Payson Is working in Roosevelt. Mrs. Franc Cooper is very ill Wltn la grippe and malaria combined. Earl Bacon went to Globe the first of the week to meet his wife, who has been absent visiting relatives and friends In the east for the past four months. Mrs. Charles Borgues has been un der the weather for the past week. Isaac Henderson has resigned his position with the government, and will go to work for Contractor O'Rourke. He will move his family to the other side of the river next week. Charley Henderson is going to give a dance in the Roosevelt city hall next Saturday night in honor of his nephew, Jed Ellis, who has been In the navy for the past five years, but is now in Globe, expecting to come to Roosevelt on Saturday's, stage. Miss Myrtle Pemperton Is kept busy nursing a sick cat which was found bady beaten In front of her home. Johnnie Saunders went, to Living- ston last Saturday night, returning Sunday afternoon on his bicycle. Hoyt Medler and Carl Wiltze spent Sunday in , Livingston. Mrs. M. Bingham, the Indian teach er here, has moved into the tent house formerly occupied by David Robishaux and family. The weather in Roosevelt has been decidedly cold for the past week, hav ing a little rain all day Thursday. Dr. Smith had to take a trip to Livingston last Monday to visit the little child of Mr. and Mrs. Luther Jackson, who is quite 111. W. A. Thompson, who has been taking care of Fish Creek station as receiver for the business there, which has been under attachment by the sheriff, blew- in on the stage tonight after an absence of some two months. Mr. Kern has been left in his place as receiver, which will last for some ten days, after which he will expect to have full control In his own right. Mr. Thompson will leave on a visit to his brother, Jim, at Cline, next Saturday. Cone Webb took in Globe last Saturday and Sunday on business, returning Monday on the Globe and Roosevelt stage. "Red" Simpson wafted in yester day from Globe by the same con veyance, leaving again for Globe this morning. "Dad" Joslln took out the Globe stage this morning In place of Joe j Phelps, the regular driver. "Dad" is only 78 years old, but knows how to handle four ribbons, if he is young ish like. CRITIC fInE CUNNINGHAM PASS CO. AS FINE ORE AS ONE CAN FIND IN ANY COUNTRY General Description of Development Work and Camp Improvements. Wendendale, Ariz., Feb. 12. (Spe cial correspondence of The Republi can.) Have you seen it? The ore from the Critic mine, owned by the Cunningham Pass Copper Co. Its the finest looking stuff ever shipped from a copper mine In Arizona, outside of the United Verde and some of the Bisbee mines. The ore is so thorough ly impregnated with copper and gold that a piece as big as a two gallon bucket Is almost too heavy to lift. It sounds like a fairy tale, but they are filling a car on the side track with ore that runs 40 per cent copper and $40.44 in gold per ton, and there are several car loads more on the dump, of the same kind, and down in the mine they are stoping on a vein that varies from three to five feet of the same rich stuff. The very high -ade ore was found,. In a cross cut from the shaft on the southwest vein at the 300 foot level. A cross cut at the 200 ft. level shows the same thing, and it also crops out on the surface. They have drifted 120 feet on the vein. In the mine are found two parallel ore bodies outcropping on the surface. The southwest vein has a diabase schist contact. Shows fine ore at the 200 and 300 foot levels, at the lowest level 'it varies from three to five feet in width. The northeast -ein is nar rower and lower in grade, but high enough in value to make a good con centrating ore. At 300 feet the two veins parallel each other 50 feet apart, the intervening space being filled with a low grade copper ore. It is believed at a depth of 500 feet the ore will be high grade enough" and sufficient In quantity to warrant the erection of a smelter. From the N.E. vein J .W. Boone took out many cars of ore running about $75 in gold and copper, which I he shipped to the Humboldt smelter. I Mr. Boone afterwards sola tne mine I to Tne uunningnam rass copper co. but he still retains a large block of the stock. The claims were bought by Mr. Boone of Jno. Bullard. The C. P. C. Co. has recently built new bunk and boarding houses, erected a foreman's tent house, etc., at the foot of the hill; much more convenient to the mine than the lo cation of the old buildings. They have graded a new road directly up to the ore bins for the use of the ore teams. They have a new compressor and air drills and are fitting up in good shape to continue sinking.
