Every Day REAL MINING HAS BEGUN Things Are Booming at the Clara-Equipment For th Swansea Waterworks Ex pected DailyStrike at the Old Maid. Bouse, Ariz., Feb. 18. (Special Cor respondence of The Republican.) Mining activity In Bouse during the past few days has been greater than for sone time past and everything seems to indicate that the Colorado country is sure to become the leading mineral country in the near future. The late artl ity Is of th kind which means bufir.iss and sure progress. The mere advent of prospectors to a country does not mean substantial Im provements. Of course the prospector is the necessary forerunner of the mining business, and any country cannot be opened up and developed without the prospector. It is he who discovers the indications, opens up the ledges, and Induces the capital to en ter and deevlop that which is already indicated and pointed out. For years and years the Colorado country has been prospected and prospected, but the development has not been com mensurate with the prospecting which has been done. But now this is all changed and the developers are com ing In, and that part of the country' Immediately surrounding Bouse is re ceiving its portion of the deevlopment stage. Little Butt th Winner. The Little Butte mine Is always the favorite in Bouse, principally because it is the closest property to the town and is generally talked of more than the others, with the possible exception of the Clara Consolidated, but the Clara Is a big property and is now run on a big scale, while the Little Butte is yet what might be called In its in fancy. Regardless of the infancy part of It, however, the only thing there is, is that the Little Butto is now a healthy child and growing llko a weed every day. The past few days have seen a remarkable growth because the actual work of mining has begun. While fifteen care of ore have actually been shipped from this property, yet the work was done more in tne line of prospecting than In the line of min ing. Now all of this has been changed and the real work of mining has be gun. Machinery, men and timbers are be ing rushed to the property, and every thing Is moving with alacrity and all work has assumed a business-like air which gives enthusiasm to all con cerned, and partcularly to others In the district who have mining property to be developed. Nothing succeeds like success and the Little Butte Is having the success. Arizona-Souse Copper Co. Since the Little Butte was bonded a month ago by J. E. Meyer & Co. of Los Angeles, who also bought outright seven other claims adjoining, things have looked better for mining in the Plomosa range. These gentlemen, however, did not stop when they bond ed the property, but they took it with the intention of getting busy, and they have done what they started out to do. Within the short space of one month Meyer & Company have organ ized the Arizona-Bouse Copper Com pany, capitalized at 12.000,000, "and have sold 160,000 acres of the stock without solicitation. The capital Is represented by 2.000.000 shares at $1 per valuation. One million of these shares is treasury stock and Is now .being offered for sale. It was the in tention of the company to divide this million shares Into blocks of one hun dred thousand shares each and to sell off the first ten blocks at ten cents per share and the next block at fif teen cents, and then raise the price of the stock as each block was offered for sale, but when the first block was offered thy were surprised to find that within three hours one hundred and forty thousand shares were sub scribed. However, the subscription was protected, but the price was im mediately raised to fifteen cents. Since the raise was made many thou sand shares have been sold. This re markable sale has added much to the enthusiasm of the people of Bouse and much to the advertisement of the min ing district. Meyer Making Things Hum. When J. E. Meyer and George Bish op were in Bouse a month ago, at the time when they took over the prop erty, they promised to begin active work very soon; however, they never stopped work, but have kept a small force of men at work all of the lime. The first part of this week Mr. Meyer came to Bouse and since that time everything has been rushing. On his road to Bouse from Los Angeles he ordered a ten-horse power hoist and other necessary equipment, which he Immediately had shipped to Bouse. This has now arrived and has been placed on the ground. In addition to this he has taken out to the property enough lumber to build a superinten dent's house, a bunk house large enough for twenty-five men, a board ing house and an engine house. Fifty foot head frames have been placed at the -mine and a large force of men put to work, both underground and on top of the ground. The shaft will be sunk to the 300-foot level right away and drifts will be run In both direc tions at the 100-foot, 200-foot and 300 foot level. Begin Shipping at Once. There are about one thousand tons of shipping ore now on the dump, and this will be shipped to FJ Paso at once, and it is expected that enough ore ' will be taken out right along to continue shipping, and it is thought that by the time the 300-foot level is reached that the shipments will amount to a car per day. In fact, it is the intention of the company not to sell any more stock whenever the production will pay for the deevlop ment. The Little Butte property is practically a grass-roots proposition, and in this respect it iB vastly differ ent from most copper properties, al though as a matter of fact this mine is not strictly a copper proposition because it runs verg high in gold. Of the ore shipped from this property It has averaged over $10 per ton gold. Of the fifteen cars of ore already shipped th average valuation of the metal In ne ore has been $45 per ton. Thus ltls easily understood why the property can be made to practically pav or its own development. Clara Consolidated Rushing. One of the busiest places In Arizona today is the Clara Consolidated at Swansea, above Bouse, At the rail road station at Bouse there are now several hundred tons of lumber, smel ter supplies, water pipes, engines, hoists, etc., ready to be hauled, and as soon as teams can be brought In this hauling will be rushed. There are now six eight and ten-horse teams In this freighting business, and it is in tended to put on some fifty to sixty of these teams. Several large outfits are now moving towards Bouse to en ter the service. Bouse is gradually becoming one of those famous mining camps r mining towns where the long freighting teams come rolling in every night and get out early the next morning. But this all means business for Bouse, and today all the business houses and saloons are doing a thriv ing business and preparing to do many time the present business within the next few months. Swansea Water Works. The first car of three-Inch water pipe has been received at Bouse for the Swansea water works. There are three cars of pipe en route for this work, besides a ten-horse powr en gine and pump. All of these are ex pected to arrive in Bouse every day, and os soon as received they will be taken out and laid. The big well is completed and ready for the installa tion of the pump. The well is located four miles from Swansea, and the wa ter will be pumped to a tank at Swan sea and distributed from the tank to the smelter and works, as well as to the residences and business houses. Old Maid Make Rich Strike. The Old Maid group, which Is locat ed about six miles south of Bouse, has now developed rich gold ore at the 60-foot level. The old shaft on this property, which Is located at the south end of the property, is on a well de fined fissure vein of gold-bearing quartz and copper silicate, but the values are not so strong. At the 100 foot level the vein faulted and a new shaft was started at the north end of the property. This new shaft Is on the same fissure velng, but the gold values are much better. This shaft has developed richer ore with depth, and is now in very rich ore. The vein is well defined and over two feet wide. Assays on the lower workings show as high as $800 per ton, while the lowest asays have been better than $20 per ton. This property now has about thirty tons on the dump, which will be shipped to the El Paso smel ter right away. All of this ore will run better than $150 per ton. How ever, this vein Is not all gold, but con tain, in addition to the gold, high grade copper silicate and iron. It Is not generally supposed that the district surrounding Bouse Is a gold country, but the recnt develop ments on the Old Maid group would indicate that it is likely to develop into a rich gold country', with rich copper values. It does not matter much whether it is called a gold coun try or a copper country, the ores all carry rich values in both gold and copper. The quartz vein running through the Old Maid, and on which these shafts have been sunk, is traceable for miles along the mountains, and it Is thought that some very rich gold and copper properties will yet be developed on this dyke. The hanging wall of this ledge is porphyry and the foot wall is diorlte. This dlorlte does not appear on the surface as a foot wall to this fissure, but at a depth of about forty feet it shows up so that the rich val ues appear on the contact between th porphyry and dlorlte. This is consid ered one of the best of indications for a rich property. All of the big mines In this country, that is, including much of Arizona and Sonora, are to be found In the dlorite dykes. Two New Building for Bouse. Stillman and Hennlnger, merchants of Bouse, are making arrangements to erect two fine buildings. One will be used as a meat market and grocery and the other will be a public town hall. These buildings will be built opposite the depot.
