Within Twenty Miles of Phoenix The Krich Gold company, devel oping property near the old Union mine, hove uncovered some very rich ore. The vein is 28 inches wide, the gangue of the vein is cherty ouartz and sulphide of calcium (gyp sum) and iron oxides is rough and angular and free gold can be dis cerned in the samples with the naked I eye. Some of the ore goes Into hundreds of dollars per ton, but a general sample has not given lew.-: than $54 per ton. The property has. been operated the last year by Jack White the ex- sheiiff, and to all acounts he has now got something which is exceed ingly promising. The district has always been known for the produc tion of rich ores. and this is the only way yet dis covered that it can be drawn!.. In the use of tungsten as an"alloy it is used principally as an alloy of high-speed steel, that is, steel in making tools used in metal turn ing lathes running at high speed to which it imparts the property of holding temper at higher ternpera- j iuie man caroon sieeis. ine now well kajown ductile tungsten is used for incandescent lamps, which are fas displacing carbon lamps. Recently greatly improved lamps in which the wire is wound in helices and in which the globes are filled with notrogen, have produced a cloe I approach of white light. These lamps are mmisned in candle powers up to 2,000. Ductile tungsten is prac-' tic-ally invaluable in all the common acids; its meeting point is higher than that of any other metal, Its tensile strength exceeds that of iron and nickel, it is para-magnetic, it can be drawn to smaller sizes than any other metal (0.0002 in. in diam eter) and its specific gravity is 70 per cent higher than that of lead. Probably tungsten is destined for inany more uses than has yet been found for it and in this would only follow the increased purposes for which other metals are used. Tungsten At Neal's .Assay Office can be seen seme of the most handsome speci mens of tungsten ores ever discov ered in Arizona. Dr. Burt Ogburn of this city, who takes deep interest in the rare metals has added to the collection a pice of tungsten w ire, similar to what is used in electric lamps, both are a dull lead color and are excellent examples of tungsten in its metallic form. The tungsten thread is rolled to a certain size and then drawn through a hole in a diamond to the fineness desired New Redjced Prices On TIRES Wo Guarantee Goods shipped to all points C. O. D.

PREDICTS HIGHER SILVER PRICES American Smelting Official Expects More Demand From India . Higher prices for silver are looked for by Vice-president Brush of the American Smelting and Refining Co., who presided at the annual meeting of the stockholders of this company and of the American Smelters Se curities Co. The price is chiefly dependent upon the demand from India, which nor mally takes 70 per cent of the metal. The industrial and business outlook in India for the year is good, said Mr. Brush. Though conditions in S'exico are unchanged, said Mr. Brush, the company's properties have sustained only slight damages. A Unique Exhibition At the fourteen and a half mile post east of Mesa on the Roosevelt road, is a uniquely constructed, what is called a cactus garden and mineral park. The j work has been done evidently as a la j bor of love. The paths circutiously j course up the hill side, there are fringed i hy rod; and along them and in all fan j cied positions is a large and varied col . lection of cacti specie, which have all been collected on the desert and trans planted in thia position. The park is j really exceedingly attractive and great j ly admired by passers by. In addition the party responsible for the work, has added small collections of various ore.? of gold and copper, which also greatly add to the appearance of the park. The party responsible for til this worl. and original ideas is C. A. Warrington, who was in Phoenix recently i t Meeting ores to add to his park and has been more efficient and better metallurgical results than ever before obtaincl. s was to be expected, the cunaiiii.en. of production early in August, or.-jj:& to the depressed condition of the capper market, made necessary the mining of only, the higher grade'ores, both smelt fng ;ata . concentrating. 1 The greatly decreased tonnage hoisted from the mine for the last five months was con sequently, -largely - responsible, for the increase in the mining costs for the year, and not only in the mining de partment, but in every other department,- where the fixed overhead ex pense --could not be reduced below a certain point, decreased tonnages wertf of. necessity productive of increased tonnage costs. The pumping, develop ment and repair costs in the mine were all particularly heavy during the year, and eonstituted an exceptionally high charge, against the mining cost of tjie ore extracted. However, the increased copper contents in ore mined during this period, and the strict attention paid throughout the year to sorting all waste "out of ' the ores in the stopes, largely, offset the increased tonnage costs and was responsible for the very satisfactory cost of copper obtained, the lowest in the history of the com pany. In December a churn drill was pur chased and erected on the company's extreme west ground. Drilling was commenced in the middle of the month and will be continued during the year 1915, with a view to determining the underlying formation.' The informa tion obtained will be conducive to more intelligent planning of extraction drifts and work in general toward the west. Considerable attention has been paid to safety, first aid and rescue -work, wjth -very gratifying results. . The developments in the mine con tinue to give very encouraging resulte and a satisfactory year's operation in 1915 can be confidently anticipated. All departments have labored faith fully and efficiently during the year with the general manager and superin tendents, and H is due to their loyalty and co-operation as well as to em ployes in general that such excellent results ere made possible. , RAY CONSOLIDATED COPPER CO. Report for Year 1914 Shows Produc tion of 57,004,281 Pounds of Cop per Compared With 53,674,275 in the Preious Year; Price Received 13.267 Cents Against 14.994 in Preceding Year The report of the Ray Consoli dated Copper company for the year ended Dec. 31, 1914, shows that the company produced 53,674,275 pounds of copper, as compared with 63,074, 275 pounds for the fiscal year of 1913. The price received was 13.267 cents, as against 14.994 cents for the previous year. Managing Director D. C. Jackling in his remarks says: The total development for the year In the areas tributary to all of the three shafts was 75,261 feet a re duction of 9,468 feet as compared to that for the previous year.

Old Dominion The report of the Old Dominion Cop per Mining & Smelting Co., for the year ended Dec. 31, 1914, has been issued. President Chas. S.

SOUTHERN PACIFIC Phone 474 PHOENIX, ARIZ. up to the end of the year 1914 was 432,233 feet or approximately 85 miles, of which mining operations have destroyed 182,760 feet or about 34 miles. Th year's development was done entirely in the usual routine of mining operations with the excep tion of sinking the No. 1 shaft be- Here Is Foot Comfort low the third level in order to com plete the ore pockets, sump, etc., preparatory to mining on that level. In the future development will pro gress at a more moderate rate than in the past, as the mine is now go thoroughly opened up as to easily fulfill all production requirements. In the prosecution of development as well as in actual stoping practi cally all of the fringe ore forming the margins of the principal ore bodies has either been explored or sloped, and In the light of the ad ditional Information obtained during the past four years it has been deem ed advisable to recalculate the ore reserves of the property. This has been done and the reserves so cal culated as of Dec. 31st, 1914, amount to 74,765,789 " tons, averaging 2.214 per cent copper and underlie an area of 205.2 acres. This recalculated tonnage shows a variation of. only about 1 1-2 per cent as compared to the total ton nage previously reported as calcu lated from churn drill developments, and after deducting the 7, 061,821 tons of ore that have been mined up to the end of 1914. As an offset to this difference in tonnage, cal culated to some extent on the basis of more perfect data, the increase in percentage of copper content amounts to about one per cent of the former grade, so that in net result the two sets of calculations are substantially identical. There is practically no difference at all between the original and new estimates as pertaining to the main portions of the principal ore bodies. Such differences as these are apply entirely to smaller, outlying areas containing thin ore bodies ot irregular shape, concerning which the data serving as a basis of original calculations was not so complete as that subsequently derived from more thorough underground development. It must be remembered in this con nection that certain of the deeper lying ore bodies, occupying areas of considerable extent, have, not been armed to their full depth and it is certain, therefore, as has been stated in connection with previous esti mates, that the tonnage ultimately available will be substantially great er than the fully developed reserves heretofore or now stated. it Has not been necessary during the year to make any additions or unusual betterments to the plants at ine mine or mill and their physical condition is excellent. No new con auuiiiiju ia c-oniempiateci, but some improvements are being inaugurated in mill practice as briefly referred to previously in this report. These, however, will only require incidental changes so far as mechanical ar rangement is concerned. The mine is fully developed and capable of maintaining the output re quired of it in such a manner that the proper proportions of ore can be produced from reserve drawing, thus maintaining uniform costs. With the area tributary to the No. 2 shaft fully developed and ready to produce, as it now is, to the extent of its full proportion of the total tonnage, there should, during the next year. be a further improvement in th grade of ore treated as compared to that of the past. The curtailment of output which became necessary dur ing that period, caused a serious break in earnings, butt from an oper ating standpoint, the experience served as a demonstration and lesson which will be lasting in their benefits through having pointed out the way to economies and measures towards break in earnings, but from an oper ation on a normal scale, will make Worried feet cause half the ills and i f"weanf "T CPT Th j; u i lower than have been predicted or uibcuiiuv; U 111 U l. imiABB BI1U women of our age. 9 The Scholl "Foot-Eazer" is a remedy.

I I United Globe Mines The report of the United Globe Mines has just been issued for the year ending Dec. 31, 1914. And, after reciting the financial conditions Pres. James Douglas in his remarks says: The principal tonnage of ores has consisted of concentrating ore from the 12th to the 16th levels, though stopes have ben worked above "the 12th in Blocks 35, 36 and 37. The 15th and ?6th levels on the Gladiator Vein have been opened between Blocks 29 and 34, and have con tributed ore of a somewhat' higher grade. Through the Grey shaft con centrating ores with high sulphur contents have been extracted. This vein will be developed between the th and 12th levels during the com ing year and should be productive of good tonnages of concentrating ore. The Taylor group will also be de veloped from tiie Grey shaft. The principal product of the Unfted Uiobe Mines being concentrating ore and the Old Dominion concentrator and its auxiliary flotation plant hav ing been under construction during ine greater part of te year, the out put -of the mines has been partially restricted.

Prior to the war Shattuck. was producing at the rate '"of about 16,000,000 pounds of copper per year. The ores are treated at the Calumet At Arizona smelter at Douglas. Shattuck mine also has ex tensive deposils of lead, and now that the price of this metal is beginning to look attractive, it is expected that production in that part of the mine will be inaugurated. Copper, gold, and lead are the main products of the Shattuck, and the stock is considered one of the gilt-edged issues of the Boston list. The Shattuck has some surprises in' store, in the matter of gold .production.. It is juite common for copper mines to produce more or less ' gold and silver, fcut the Shat tuck has a large tonnage of ore which runs especially high in gold values The Shattuck company his just declared a dividend of 50 cents pay able May 20 to those on stock record of April 30. field camp, who has recently bought a controlling interest in Fortuna, says: "I believe the property contains the greatest possibilities of any mine in Arizona or Nevada.

The stopes were found in good condition and the mine is entirely free from water. Unlike some of the newer companies this one has gone through the storm, has money in the treasury and has no current indebtedness, and with these prices for copper should show good profits. Tlie annual report of the company showed about 21,000 square feet of proven eommercial ore between the sixth and eighth levels. This is with out doubt" a continuation of the veins found in adioining properties and coupled with the improvements made in the latter, officials consider the fu ture of Iron Cap as very bright.

Shattuck-Arizona DULUTH Shattuck mine of bisbee, Ariz., resumed production last Mon day, and soon will be running on full time. Men are being put on as fast as 'they are available., and it is expected that the property will be operating, on a baais of .about 400 tons per day very soon. If the com pany considers that conditions war rant the production will be advanced to around 500 tons per day. The Shattuck normally employs about 300 to 350 men. At no time in its his tory has the Shattuck been in such superb shape for heavy and sus tained production as now. . The com pany ceased production October I last on account of the low price of the metal, which at the time was an in cident growing out of the war in Eu rope. But the mine was not shut down, and when production ceased, a large force was put at work on de velopment, and has been " continued right up to this week, when' produc tion was resumed.
