THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 26, 1914
THE MINES This department it under the di rection of Mr. W. E. Defty, the well known mining engineer, who will carefully scrutinize all mat ter! relating to mining in order that only reliable information re garding legitimate enterprises shall find a place here. The Republican would be pleas ed to receive information from any part of the state regarding the development of the mining in dustry. All communications should be addressed: Mining De partment, Arizona Republican. Congress Tailings Laboratory tests on these tailings have proven that a high extraction is possible, and following this up on a larger scale, the parties interested are now moving several of the old tanks above the tailings to a point on the northwest and below the tail ings pile. When the tanks are re- erected, a thorough test of the treat- i ment will be pursued, and if the process continues to be satisfactory, the tailings will be treated on a very much larger scale- It will be neces sary to handle largely, for there is an immense pile of tailings, the re sult of an accumulation from the 40 stamp mill operating over twenty years. It will certainly give satis faction to see activity at the old mine again. Shattuck & Arizona The Shattuck & Arizona company reports that in No. 2 stope on the 300-foot level a raise has been pushed through ore assaying $13 per ton in gold and silver, with small lead values. Courtland Development on the Great Western copper claims, situated in this camp, has ceased, and the pumps are being drawn from the workings. Young brothers, the owners, are directing all their attentions and energies upon the old Mammoth' gold mine on the San Pedro in Pinal county. This old property was a large producer in its day, but was shut down when the 700-foot level was reached, and then laid idle for some years, and until Young brothers took hold of it.

HARRY 35 East Washington St. OP ARIZONA tailings from the old mill on tlie property have' been concentrate;! for their vanadium contents and cyanided twice. The vein is a large and per sistent one, and there is no reason to doubt that there is a Ions and suc cessful future career for the old prop erty. The' vein produced the most beautiful specimens of crystalline vanadium m and probably more beau tifully than any known mine. The mine supported a thriving town at Mammoth, and we are glad to again see new life put into the old mine and district by the Young brothers. They are substantial and energetic mining men, and no doubt a. prema nent camp will be built up. Acquisition It is rumored that this property in the Humbug district will again be started up in the near future- Nego tiations have been closed for a large ly increased power plant. The dis trict is a good one and has produced considerable values in the past. Irene This old property, near Globe, is about to be started up with an en ergetic campaign of development. The property was recently examined by a well known mining engineer, and since then all the necessary funds to carry on active work have been raised. It is expected that the future work will be planned and commenced by May 1. The party responsible for raising the capital and who will di rect the development arrived in Globe last week. The property is an old one, and at one time shipped some very high-grade silver ore. Like many old properties around Globe, they are receiving attention, one by one. Old La Paz Wash The department of the interior has sustained a decision of the Phoenix land ofifce, including within the Par ker Mohave Indian reservation a large tract of land in western Yuma coun ty, near the Colorado river, on which a California company had started ex tensive placer-mining operations. The whole matter depended upon the lo cation of Old La Paz Wash, and this was determined by the testimony of a number of pioneers who lived at La Paz or Ehrenberg prior to 1875. We have referred to those old placer grounds in these columns sev eral times, and the decision is what we have expected. The area was a very rich one and produced large quantities of gold in early days. In fact, at one time La Paz was a thriv ing mining town of 2000 to 3000 in habitants, with good, substantial buildings. Twenty-five years ago I can remember seeing- iron shutters and window gratings standing up among the mesquite which had grown up since the desertion of the town. Unquestionably, substantial values could be recovered from the ground todav, providing water could be got ten upon it for sluicing. The ground had been worked previously by dry washers, and only a fraction of its contents were saved by this process. It's a pity the ground cannot again be worked it is worthless to the res ervation. It would be good policy if 'the department of the interior woum ' grant permission for it to be worked, ! or lease it in some manner. The j company who has already spent con i siderabfe money on the enterprise i would be glad and willing, probably, to pay a royalty for such permit. i , : How We Are Salted I The volume of the saline matter in the ocean is a little more than 4,800,000 cubic miles, or enough to 1 cover the entire surface of the United I States, exclusive of Alaska, 1.6 miles i deep.

"I was quite optimistic," admitted the gentlemanly prisoner. "Well, the governor wants a report on conditions in my jail. I want you to write it." Washington Herald. His Last Shift An old-time miner and prospector passed away at Wiekenburg last week, in the person of Lewis W. Crane. He was aged about 83 years, and had held claims and lived in the vicinity of Wiekenburg for a number of years, and owned mining claims upon which he did work from year to year. He was a kindly old man, and, like other od hermits of the hills, held implicit faith that some day lie would strike it rich. He worked at his calling until very recently. We knew hiin for many years. He was absolutely honorable and dependable. Gibson Mine The new owners of this property, J. K- Davis of San Francisco and P. F. Carney of Coldlield, Nevada, con template, among other improvements, the erection of an 80-ton concentrat ing plant, for the purpose of treating the lower-grade of sulphide ores, which lie adjacent to the richer ore veins. This will help the development of the property considerably by ob taining revenue from lower-grade ma terial, for up to the present only the higher grade of shipping ores have been extracted and shipped, to the smelter. At present the con struction of new and large capacity ore bins are under way. Inspiration The Inspiration Consolidated Cop per company has issued its report lor the year ended December 31, 1913. The most significant features of the report are a large increase in ton nage, the decision of the management to increase the capacity of the pres ent plant to 10,000 tons per day, and the authorization for an issue of $4,500,000 convertible bonds. The total ore reserves as of De cember 31, 1913, are placed at S9, 643,000 tons averaging 1.64 per rent, copper. Of this tonnage, 72,322,000 tons are sulphide ores averaging 1.71 per cent. These figures compare with the tonnage reported at the close of the preceding year of 45,000,000 tons averaging 2 per cent. The only ex ploratory work done during the year was the drilling done in the .Live Oak group. In thlp section, 6,858,000 tons, averaging 1.39 per cent, copper, were developed. Woodbury The Woodbury Copper company property, which comprises over 100 claims, northwest of Superior, is un der consideration by parties, and some conclusive action may be arrived at very shortly. Iast year the property was on the point of receiving exten sive developmtnt by a wealthy syndi cate, but at the last( moment the deal fell through. Copper Metal Market There has been but a small de mand for copper this week, and, while producers have held to their asking price of 14 3-4 cents per pound, sec ond hands have sold from one-quarter to three-eighths lower.

The outlook for copper is better than for most industries, owing to the existence of a foreign market for it and because of the gradual consump tion of surplus stocks during the past three years, but it is not very bright at the moment as Europe has laid in a considerable stock for future consumption and our own manufac turers are not getting the expected increase in the demand for their prod ucts. The copper industry is so closely related to the expansion of railway and other facilities that in a broad way the future is decidedly bright. In Mexico The mine managers in Sonora have decided to stay with their properties, irrespective of the warning. Again Americans have been warned to leave Mexico. The message from the state department came to Consul Simpich at Xogales, in the form of a tele gram from Secretary Bryan. In a conference held in Douglas the heads of the various American min ing companies operating in Mexico decided not to suspend operations, houine and believing that this sec tion of Mexico will not become in volved with the United States. Following is the text of Bryan's telegram to Consul Simpich: "Huerta has refused to salute the American flag as demanded by Ad miral Mayo as an apology for the in sult offered in arrest of American sailors- President Wilson will lay the matter before congress, with a view of taking such action as may be necessary to enforce respect for this nation's rights. Please notify all Americans and other foreigners. Af ford every possible protection, re minding Americans of the president's advice to withdraw from Mexico until order is restored. Advise depart ment immediately of number desir ing to leave and give such other in formation as will enable us to under stand and provide for the situation." o ICICLES CAUSE TROUBLE By Falling from the High, Buildings On n.'S ' 'U .ivaw- w. Two men were walking past a downtown skyscraper the other day when a sharp report startled them and one of the men had his hatbrim and his face scratched by jn object that had fallen from the bui'ding. When they recovered their composure they looked about to see what had caused the trouble and they discov ered on the sidewalk an icicle that had broken into a hundred fr. ments The man whose hat had been dam aged was trembling from the scare, but he was averse to making a com plaint. As he figured, he was lucky in escaping serious injury, and he advised getting out of the danger zone as soon as he and his com panion could do so. His friend was more indignant about the matter and advised enter ing the building and placing the matter before the superintendent. He thought it at least incumbent on the agent to supply a new hat ami he thought that that would be letting him off easy. So hey entered the building and were directed to the superintend ent's office. That official glanced lip trom his desk and noticing the man with the smashed hat in hia hand was quick to divine the reason for the stranger s call. "What's this, an icicle case?" in quired the superintendent. "Hat smashed? Well, I am glad it was nothing more serious. Just wait a minute and I will make out an order for a new hat, for I know it is the least that I can do for you." The superintendent promptly filled out the order for a new head-piece. Then he passed to the man whose hat had been ruined, remarking "That is only one of the troubles we have to contend with in operat ing this building. Superintendents of all tall buildings experience the same trouble in the winter. We take great pains to keep tho icicles off the structure so they cannot topple down on pedestrians and we have a force of men continually working on the troublesome ice, but with all our caution and labor we cannot work fast enough to keep up with them. They form so quickly that we can not prevent some of them from fall ing to the street. "We do everything in our power to lessen the danger by paying par ticular attention to the large icicles, because we realize that some of them are so big and heavy that if they fell on a person's head they might fracture his skull. It is bad enough to have one of them smash a man's hat; but we do not wish anything more serious to happen if we can prevent it. "Naturally, if we did not have snow or rain accompanying the frost we would not be bothered with Ici cles, for then there would be no water to freeze. It is much easier to handle the situation when it snows, for we can send men up to the roof and have the snow shoveled off. By removing the root of the trouble we forestall serious results, although it is utterly impossible to remove all the snow before some of It melts and the water dripping over the edge of the roof forms icicles. "When it rains it increases our troubles, for all the water does not find its way down the drain pipes. Some of it overflows and icicles cling to the edges until we can re move them or they fall before we can prevent them." New York Sun. HAND GEOGRAPHY The geography class was in session and the teacher pointed a finger to the map on the classroom wall. "Here on one hand we have the far-stretching country of P.ussia. Willie," she asked, looking over her pupils and settling on the small boy at the end of the class, "what do we see on the other hand?" Willie, hopeless with fright, hesi tated a moment and then answered: "Warts." Philadelphia Record.
