elected a number of years ago, but

comes tbe announcement of the de- j
cision by the I'nited States supreme
court sustaining the findings of tbe
lower courts in holding the bonds of .
the company to be invalid. The 1st- I
ter holding is due to the fact that in :
the bonds there was a stipulation !
that interest should be dependent up-
on the earning of dividends by the i
company. No Uiviil. nds were earned j
in onsciuence of which the bonds '
are held to be null and void. j

The claims of the creditors will bring
nearly the full sum necessary to full

The work on this property is being
kept steadily ahead by sinking of the
main vertical shaft. This is now
down to a depth of :iT0 feet. This
vein is a large and promising one 'on
tlie surface and remains oxidized and
is very soft and friable, therefore
requiring care and caution in mining.
It is anticipated that a zone of en
richment will be found under this
area, and under this a sulphide base.
The main shaft at the Little Daisy
has now reached a depth of 1-00 feet
and a station is being cut on the
lu.nging wall side, preparatory to
i ross-cutting on this side of the
fault, where it is expected ore may
be encountered; at any rate, that is
the hope of those interested.
Work is being carried on in a small
way at the Hull and Cleopatra prop
erties. Th new tortuous seven-mile rail
load from flarkdale to the laOU-foot

pleted and has been turned over to

in rather uad shape, but is said to
contain fair values in gold and sil
ver. There are promising properties
in this district that will make good
when the proper and intelligent min
ing attention is given them. . The
prospect of the Ajo railroad being
constructed is giving some decided
impetus to this district.
Mohave County
During tbe month of March the
clean-up of the Tom Keed mine was
$ 10.1. i0 in gold, showing that the ore
is holding high value. The winze
from the '.100-foot level has boon
sunk -oo feet ami remains in high
grade ore all the wav. The mine
has large bodies of fll ore, but this
is not being mined at the present
time. Ores of higher grade only are
being taken to the mill. It is con
templating enlarging the plant in the
near future.
The Portland Group
The following appeared in
Republican under date:
HA Y, Ariz., April 1". The Portland
mining claims, adjoining the ground
of the recent Ray gold strike, have
been bonded to Dr. W. W. Nutting,
of Jlostoii. Mass. There are five
claims in the group.
More particulars regarding the jleal
is embodied in tlie following: -
The Portland group, jind adjoining
claims have been bonded to Dr. W.
W. Nutting. The Portland group
consists of five claims, held by K. R.
Shafor and others of Jerseyville, 111.
The property lies on the west side
of Mineral creek, three miles above

Ray, adjoining the old Ray Northern
property on the south.
Dr. Nutting was in Ray a month
ago and examined the property and
located for himself at that time six
other claims. He also took option on
a claim held by Dan Kusemon mid
one held by J. W. Read, which in
creases Hie group to thirteen claims.
According to the terms of the bond.
S 1,100 is to be paid within ninety
days ami the remainder in imi and
two years. The total consideration
was $21,000.
Dr. Nutting is formcly from Ros

C"chse Mines
The Southwestern Copper company
of San Simon has been incorporated
to operate the property of the old
Cochise Consolidated Copper com
pany, two miles north of Paradise.
The mine .was closed down in Hun".,
the property being in litigation for
several years. Some ore has been
blocked out. There is a concentrator
on the ground and a number
buildings are in a good state
preservation. This property is an
extension or the old Peabody mine

Comes a story to me from Yuma
county, but as the correspondent,
who now has the property, does not
iiosire his name to be known in con
nection with it, I refrain from pub
lishing it. However, the story is too
interesting not to give our readers
the. benefit of its perusal, for it
smacks so strongly of the tales told
about old Spanish mines, and who
knows the discovery may be the long
lost Dutchman, Frenchman, Nigger
Ken. or the Peg-Leg. However, here '
is the story. I
"Several weeks ago my son and j

I parties for the figures stated at
1 $31,000. Negotiations commenced; in
j inch reply by eorrrspendoneo the
terms became stiffer aim stiffer un
til it simmered down to the following
conditions: f.'M.oeo down immediately
after examination: another payment
soon after to make up $71.ooo, and
the bolder of the option to retain a
half interest in the property. The
other parties finally replied and said
if he would hold the property until
the next presidential election they
might consider the deal to give him
S71,on0 for a one-tenth interest and
waive the examination.

The deficit of $2S4,0!H shown in
the company's annual report for the
year mded December ;U last was due
almost entirely to 'the case-in which
occurred last April at the company's
property. Although the comparative
ly low price of copper received was a
factor in bringing about this result.
The cave-in occurred in the north
west ore body and not only inter
fered with mining operations during
April, .May and June of last year, bill
also increased the cost of production.

After July 1, ml, candidates for
admission to Columbia University
will be rt'iuired to present evidence
of such preliminary general educa

It is felt that because or the in- j

that the fundamental courses
