(Br Tom Shultz.) Parker, Ariz, June 1. (Special cor respondence of The Republican.) The past sixty days have developed be yond question the fact that the tide of mining investments has at last turned this way, and the very 'air is laden with oytimism. To know that this in vasion of capital is henceforth to be permanent cne only has to consult the leading journals of the United States, wherein scarcely a day passes without seeing a highly complimentary article telling of what is being done or Is going to be dona in the rich mineral districts tributary to Inrrcer. Of many such articles that come to my table weekly I take the liberty of quoting th.? following from the Western In vestors' Review for Mar, of Denver, Colo. It says: "Arizona's nw gold field, near Parker, is still attracting j the attention of the moneyed men of ine mining world. Hundreds of pro moters are visiting the different camps every week and all are enthusiastic in their nraise of the nw conntry and are leasing anything and everything in sight. (Joldfield Is well represented, as is also IKnver and Los Angeles, while Cripple Creek enthusiasts are giving it out without reservation that it is destined to be a greater camp J than Cripple Creek ever was, and what Is more they are putting up their money and are doing things no man who has not had the gold fever before would think of doing. Arizona has eyes on the new field and staid busi ness men who have never owned a share of stock In a mine of any kind are cutting their purse strings to get in on any kind of a poposition. The gold Is there and lots of it. Towns are springing up as if bv a magician's wand, and houses are built in a night. . "Money to develop the country is coming in so fast -that the more pessi mistic say the country wikb go to the dogs and be overdone, but who ever heard of a country as rich as that with bodies of ore in sight that will run twenty iears, and the bodies of ore that lie underneath not yet started to be uncovered? The motto of all the camps is 'There is no use exaggerat ing, it's rich enough without it.' " The above, literally speaking, is cor rect. "Representatives of large capital are here today making careful exami nation of the general mineral condi tion of the country. As a result some have acquired properties and it is con fidently believed by those who are watching the trend of affairs that oth ers will take hold of some of the many worthy prospects adjacent to Parker. Among the first that might be term ed pioneer capital to see the merits of the geology and mineralogy of this country was that organized by J. O. Rover of Los Angeles, under the In corporation" known a the Quartz King Mining company. The property ac quired by this company consists of 114 claims situated five miles due east of Parker in Arizona, less than two miles from the Colorado river, on th? bunks of which adequate mill sites are held. The Quartz King property covers an eruptive formation at its first appear ance above tho alluvial deposit of the valiey. This formation presents on Its surface most every known rock of Ig neous character and is continuous in its southeast by northwest trend, upon which to the southeast is located Min eral Hill, Planet and Sianal mines and many others. The first two named are famous for having shipped ore in the early 'g1) to Swansea, Wales, for treat ment, while the latter is now just put ting the finishing touches upon Its 330 ton smelter for the reduction of its ortis. Adjoining the Quartz King, and upon the same vein," is Hi tut-ted the Billy Mack group of twelve claims. This property was discovered in 1SS0 by Mr. Mack and in the decade follow ing that date its owner extracted over ISO.OGO in gold under the most expen sive and trying circumstances. This old time prospector has always recog nized the merits of the property now heid by the Quartz King, believing that it will, with exploration, become a great producer. The Carnation is an other old property, situated two miles north of the Quartz King, that shipped its quota of high-grade ore to Swan sea, Wales, for treatment way back in the '70s. Mention is made of these producers to show that the Quartz King is cor rectly located, Insofar as a heavily min eralized zone is concerned. This belt, or zone, does not end on the north west at the crossing of the Colorado river b"ut, to the contrary, reaches far on into California upon which many valuable properties are located and be ing worked at the present time. It was in 1904 that the Quartz King Mining company begun active develop ment upon Its poixrtics with the sink ing of a vertical shaft. This shaft was located well into the mineral bearing zone upon a large iron copper dike, at which point the mineral bearing for mation is proven to be 1000 feet wide. The power for development comprised two 60-horse power gasoline engines which operated the hoist, and a 45-horse power timpressor, while a third, a 12-horse power engine, op erates a triplex "plunger pump. With this machinery the shaft was sunk to a depth of 263 feet and the ledge was pretty thoroughly explored by drifts and cross-cuts as far as the 200 level. Large bodies of medium grade ore were encountered with a good number of high-grade streaks, some of which av eraged as much as eight feet in width. This ore is in carbonate and oxides to where the water is encountered, at which point the sulphides are making, which insures a permanent enriched ore zone and which will most probably grow richer with depth. At 230 feet the shaft began to enter the water, which increased so rapidly j thar'at the depth of 265 feet work was suspended on account of the incapacity of the machinery'. A meeting of the board of directors of the company was held to consider the proper course to pursue. There were two ways out of the difficulty, one being the installa tion of an almost entirely new plant, if the shaft was to be continued to the 300 level, the objective depth, and the other was to move the present plant some 2500 feet west toward flie river and at a lower elevation of 250 feet. Superintendent Simon and General Manager Royer had carefully engineer ed the latter propostion which was shown by corrert map as follows: As previously stated, the new shaft was to be located 2500 feet west of the old workings and on the mineralized for mation. The shaft to be sunk 125 feet from the bottom of which a cross-cut tunnel is to be driven 1359 feet nearly east, at which point it intersects the large quartzite copper and iron dike (see illustration Xo. 3) upon which Is j located the old workings. At this point a station will be .made and the ledge will be drifted on in a southeasterly course for 1900 feet, where it will en ter the ore shoots 200 feet or more below tire old workings. In the transit of the first half of the tunnel five large mineralized dikes will be cut anl explored as encountered, and it is reasonable to be-lieve that a number of blind ltads will be struck. Upon completion of the lat half the water will' f low'to the shaft, (where the pres ent machinery is sxiply sufficient to handle it. In the conrjte-non of the above work, if the property develops as is confidently expected, the manage ment proposes to begin on the north west tunnel which will run from the bottom of the shaft to the site of the reeluetion works on the river distance about 5000 feet. Not only will this tunnel, the same as the first, continue the cross-cutting of the formation, but it will also drain the entire holdings of the company as well as an open avenue for the economical transporta tion of ore. My obiect in going into details of the development of the Quartz King is for the one purpose of showing that it is promoting a gigantic ore enter prise one of the foremost mining en terprises of the territory and that without ostentation or any blare of trumpets. The company through its manager attends strictly to the busi ness of mining and though only lo cated five miles from, and in plain view of Parker, the Quartz King is known or heard little of by people trav eling through here. The capital for the promotion of this work largely comes from Kurope, prin cipally France and Sweden. Last De cember D. K. Lindsten, mining engi neer from Stockholm, Sweden, spent several days on the property and be fore his departure said to the writer: "This is my third visit to the mine in the interest of our Swedish stock holders and I say, I believe truthfully, that we are going to make a great mine out of the Quartz King. Every visit I note new and important fea tures, for instance, on this trip I dis covered rock that carried gold that no one evej knew of before. I am very well pleased witH my visit." Paral Duchateau, son of Dr. Du chateau, was here inspecting the property last month. The morning he left Parker for France he said: "The work now under way is cer tainly the proper course to pursre. !t will be faithfully prosecuted and I be lieve it will attract the eyes of the mining world to the Quartz King. I have the strongest confidence in it making a mine and I presume you all must know what that means to Par ker." The elder Duchateau Is a large stock holder and director in the company and personally visited the Quartz King about this time last year. European stockholders keep themselves fully posted as the development progresses. Nothing but the closest economy has been observed by the management in its surface improvements and every thing at the camp is conducted with that thought in view. Xo more worthy mining proposition is being opened up today in the west thari the Iron King. Its officers, directors and many stock holders are gentlemen of high stand ing and the company's affairs are con ducted without the slightest degree of secrecy. Within less than five years I believe the mining world ill be bet ter acquainted with the Quirtz King. THE USE OF SEXINE PILLS.

Regardless of the approaching hot weather there has really been mon activity in this district during the past week than at any time in the history of the district. More peof'le who really mean business and more work is being started and )Janned than at any time, all of which goe-s to show that the outside people am nov beginning to take notice and beginning to do something.
