CONFIDENCE OF CAPITAL SHOWN BY LARGE INVESTMENTS agilaBBaaaaaBBBBaannBnnannaBBjaj Copper Flat Attaining Prominence -Tyrone Development Company-Meerschaum Company of America-Forest Queen Copper Company-Cooney. Burro Mountains. Gold Hills and Other Camps Are Among Prop erties Which Promise to be Money Makers (From Silver City Independent.) A mining deal which means much for the future prosperity of Grant county was consummated last week when T. Walter Beam, a prominent mining man of Denver, Colo., closed on options for thirty-one claims In copper Flat, Central Mining district, this county. The claims Include practically all of the properties In Copper Flat and across the railroad in Hanover gulch, as also a. number of valuable water lights. The principal group was ob tained from Gilchrist & Dawson, In corporated, and Is known as the Cop per Flat, consisting of the Cumber land, Congo. Sumpter, Laura H.. Cop per Carbonate, Lime Mine, Copper Glance, Lexington. Free Silver, Super ior. Little Key and Reservation Frac tion lode mining claims, all of which are patented. Another group was conveyed by Azariah Martin, an old time mining man and prospector, and comprising eleven claims located us the Orphan Boy, Lieutenant Colonel, Roosevelt Colonel, Rough Rider, Rough Rider No. 2. Teddy, Bourbon, Perfection, Blooming and Dick Mane fee. Still another was conveyed by B. F. Baker. The Baker group con sists of six claims called the Stone wall, Oregon, Prize Winner, Flan quette. Jessamine and Key Stone Fraction. It Is understood that Mr. Beam rep resents a number of prominent and wealthy eastern capitalists, among them .several who are financing the Tyrone. Development company an1 who are connected with the Calumet and Arizona company. Later on a corporation will be organized to con duct the development work under tho name of the Exploration Company of New York. The plan of operation will be similar to that adopted by the Tyrone company. No money or ex pense will be spared to thoroughly exploit and develop the Copper Flat country and the result Is almost cer tain to be another big copper produc ing district for Grant county. The Copper Flat section Is by no neans an unknown quantity. Active operations were conducted there in the middle nineties. In June, 1895, Frank K. Simpson, a Boston capital ist, purchased the twelve claims com prising the Copper Flat group. Prior to that time the property had been sufficiently developed to prove its value. The claims were originally owned by Troutinan, Allen, Clark, Rogers, Johnson and other. Each one realized that he had a valuable claim, but neither was In a position to properly work the same. Mr. Simpson took a hold and did a great deal of work, absolutely demonstrat ing that extensive ore bodies existed. It was also proved that the ore im proved in qjality as depth was attain ed. Two main shafts were sunk to a depth of feet and other extensive development done. The Rough Rider group has also been a producer for some years past and is well develop ed, one shaft being 130 feet. There are on the properties immense Iron cropping showing conclusively the presence of mineral. The new com pany will continue the sinking of the old shafts on the Copper Flat group as also the main shaft on the Rough Rider group and will thoroughly pros pect the entire ground. The work will be conducted In the same syste matic and extensive manner as that done by the Tyrone company at Ty rone. T. C. Gorree, who was In charge of the work at Tyrone at the begin ning and who is a mining man of ex perience and ability. Is already on the ground and will have charge of the operations. The company Is not los ing a single day. A force of men were put to work last week clearing up and getting In readiness, and over fifty men will be at Copper Flat with in the next thirty days. Machinery and material have been ordered and shipped and the Copper Flat camp will be a scene of great activity In a very short while. The new company Is not looking for nmall bodies of high grade ore, but for the large deposits of low grade mineral which can be worked at a handsome profit with the pres ent high price of copper. That such bodies exist was demonstrated years ago under the Simpson management. The only reason that Mr. Simpson ceased work when he did was on ac count of the low price of copper. The opening up of this property will form another important factor in the "for ward march'" of Grant county's In dustries. It will not only give em 'oylMi) Vj ' f cV!$ . ;v. T v' Stl ' tit kit r-" OF GREAT MINING ACTIVITY ployment to hundreds of men, but! put thousands of dollars In clrcula-l tion among the merchants of the county, and furthermore It will prove beyond a doubt the additional value of Grant county's mineral resources and operating them. Tyrone. Every person visiting the Tyrone camp these days is amazed at the re sults which are being accomplished by the Tyrone Development company. It Is, to express It mildly, to say that this property promises to be one of the biggest copper producers In the southwest. The developing work un der the masterful and experienced hands of the Merrill brothers. Link and Jack, has been remarkable and they have immense bodies of ore to show for their labors. They have gone about It In a deliberate manner with unlimited backing and have four shafts down from two hundred to six hundred feet with cross-cuts at different levels. The management Is not seeking publicity and Is In fact reticent about its operations, but from a reliable source it is learned that at one shaft a body of copper running very high in average was struck at 190 feet and has not been cut through at the depth of 250 feet. The Tyrone operation Is backed by some of the biggest mining men in the country, including Thomas Cole, G. E. Tenner and the Merrill brothers who developed the Calumet and Ari zona at Bisbee. An idea of what mining men think of the property can be had from the fact that some of them are now bidding seventy-five and eighty dollars a share for the development stock and cannot find uny to be had at that price. It is un derstood that tho development com pany will later on be converted Into a mining company, and this within a comparatively short time, as the work J has now gone beyond the develop i merit stage and the properties can i truthfully be said to be ready for pro- d action. The name of the mining company will be changed from Ty i rone to some other, probably tli3 Chemung. In addition to its original holdings the company has taken over I numerous other adjoining properties j and will undoubtedly add more to I the list. The operations of the com- pany mean a great deal to the peo ple of Grant county and it Is most e;i : couraging to know that the develop ments have far exceeded the expecta- tions of the proniotors. Alunogen District. J. L. Hill, general superintendent of the Meerschaum Company of I America, operating in the Alunogen district on the Sapello, was in Silver City Saturday attending to business : for ills company. Mr. Hill reports that the road which the company has been constructing from its properties to Scott's saw mill is completed. The new road gives an outlet throun I'lnos Altos to Silver City and short ens the haul nearly twenty-live miles. The road Is twenty-two miles m length and is in a good condition. The company Is now building an ad dition to the boarding house. Devel opment work is being pressed for ward as rapidly as possible and the results are entirely satisfactory. Su perintendent Hill is, however, exper iencing the same difficulty that all the mining operators in Grant coun ty are in securing labor, and as a consequence has not been able to car ry the work forward as rapidly as he desires. He Is at an especial disad vantage in this regard owing to the distance of the properties from Sil ver City. New men are being se cured as rapidly as possible, how ever. The Meerschaum Company of America owns twelve mining claims In the Alunogen district and possess es the only known deposit of mer chantable meerschaum in marketable quantities In the world, excepting only the Turkish meerschaum mines of Asiatic Turkey. The enterprise is one which gives every indication of success. The policy of the company is to as soon as possible reach greater depth where without doubt the meer schaum will be found In large quan tities and free from the percolation and seepage from the country rock and consequently In its original pure condition. This is shown by the ex istence at the present time of the pure mineral in kidneys within the veins and near the surface where they have escaped deterioration. I'ino Altos District. W. S. Pitman and Dr. G. T. War, of Independence, Missouri, spent last week at the properties of the Forest MOVING DAY -THE LAST LOAD Queen Copper company In the Plnos Altos mining district, fight mne north of Silver City. Both gentlemen are large stockholders in the com pany and visited the mines with a view of thoroughly familiarizing themselves with the properties and incidentally to enjoy the unexcelled climate and mountain scenery of this section. Both gentlemen were more than Batistled with the result of their Investigations and spoke enthusiasti cally of the numerous exposures of pay ore and the economical handling of the name through the tunnel to the proposed two hundred ton separating plant to be erected this year, the un questioned possibility of a permanent industry and convenience to railroad and market. When questioned with reference to the development work being done they stated that the crosr tunnel is in about three hundred feet, exposing eight feet of ore In No. 2 ore vein, eighteen feet of ore In No. 3 ore vein, sever, and one-half feet of ore in No. 6 ore vein, 4') feet of ore In No. " ore vein, over f.O feet of ore in No. S ore vein and between 45 and SO feet of ore in No. 9 ore vein to the face of the tunnel with no foot wall in sight, all between defined in trusive and in some cases lime con tact walls with an approximation of three hundred feet of drifts In the several ore bodies. Messrs. Pitman and Ware informel the Independent that they had walk ed over the vein out-crop for more than a mile on the property of the company and believed that the suc cessful treatment of the ore and good management will insure to the stock holders a satisfactory and permanent dividend paying Investment. Cooney, The CiMMiey mine, belonging to the Mogollou Gobi and Copper company. Is showing up nicely, and some very fine ore is being sacked, besides a good grade going to the mill. In one slope one man has been breaking from five to seven tons of milling ore daily, besides sacking from six to twenty sacks of shipping ore of a value of $150 a ton. T. J. Curran, president of the company, who Is in active charge of operations, has first class men In charge of mine and mill, and has shown his ability in the man ner in which he has overcome the difficulties of operation In a district so far from the railway and the labor market. The main double compart ment shaft Is being sunk from the sixth level, and each foot In depth gained adds to the value of the Coon ey mine. The Cooney Is the only copper producer in the camp, yet there are a number of other group? of claims owned by this company that may equal the Cooney in copper values with development. The Enterprise Mining company, with mines in Cooney canyon, In tends to go forward at once with Its new cyanide plant. Mrs. Freeman, widow of the late manager, reached the district from the east but a few days ago to take active management of the property. Gold Hill. . C. Hinman returned last week from a visit to his mining property at Gold Hill in which he Is associated with Frank G. Cline. The property is known as the Roosevelt. A rich strike has recently been made ut the depth of seventy-six feet, the vein be ing some thirty Inches In width and showing much free gold. Mr. Hin man brought back a number of very pretty specimens which he has at his store here. If the ore holds out it is a certainty that the owners have a big thing. Mr. Cllne remained at the mine to continue development work. Burro Mountain. A party of prominent St. Iouis business men and capitalists have been in Silver City for some days ' looking over the properties of the i National Copper Mining company In ! Whiteriver canyon. Burro Mountain 1 district. The party consists of W. 5. Haynes, P. C. Liluiiey and T. S. Mo , Maims. They were Joined Friday by Colonel Ed Butler, the well known St. Louis politician. All of the gen- ! tlemen named are stockholders of the , company. The party made severai I visits to the properties of the com pany with C. I'. Laughlin, the man- , ager. All were enthusiastic over ths way in which the property is showing ; up and the excellent management of the same by Mr. Laughlin. It Is the ! Intention of the company to shortly ' commence the erection of a large ; plant. Excavations are already being ; made for the same. The company , has large bodies of ore ready for ( treatment and the proposition is tine one from every standpoint. It will be only a comparatively short ;time until the National mines are add. ed to the copper producing proper j ties of the Burro Mountain district. ACKNOWLEDGE IT. j Albuquerque Has to Dow to the.

No. 23 Heart of Aged Hawaiian Queen Is Won by a Handsome Prince 5) qiHEX LIL" AM) OXF. Honolulu. May 3. After years of widowhood the heart of Queen Lill uokalanl has melted before the ar dent glances of Cupid. A handsome young prince of Tahiti Is sailing from his native land to claim the queen as his wire. But the queen doesn't want the world to know of her approaching murtiage. She denies that there will be one. but the general feeling here Is that the queen's denial of her hy inenlal intentions has grown out of her fear that her friends and ac quaintances, especially those of the white race, will Josh her, especially as the husband-to-be Is considerably younger than she Is. She is 68 years old, though she carries them with dig nity and ease, while the prospective prince consort is a man less than 40. Wives much the senior of husbands are not at ail Infrequent among Ha- wallans. 1 he queen has had both her city and her country residences put in order lately, and the arrival of the princely groom was announced for a certain steamer, and when he did not come it was explained that he had been detained by some business May and December Come to Banker MR.

Post, millionaire banker, says no. She has Just had her hus band arrested, charging gross bru tality. A suit for divorce will fol low, she says. Mrs. Post Is almost sixty. Her hair Is silvery gray. She likes a quiet life. Her husband Is thirty-two, an enthusiastic balloonist, automoblllst and is studying for grand opera. Her one regret over the disparity in their ages is that she is not older In that event she would have had more sense than to marry, she declares. Their romance began eight years ago In London. He was a persistent wooer, and they were wed soon after- ('Imniherliiiii'tf Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.

All the bitterness of the days of the overthrow and of the provisional gov ernment which followed, toward the queen, has died out. Time's Influence has been mellowing. What her in nermost feelings are, It would be inv possible to say, though there Is every reason to believe her bitterness, too, has gone. She lives a quiet, dignified life, ap pearing at social and public gath erings but seldom, and entertaining in a normal way but little. She vis its and receives her Intimate friends of both races frequently, and, though In a simple and Intimate way, not without some of the dignified cere monial to which she was so long ac customed. The queen Is In receipt of a pension oft300 a month from the Hawaiian government. She haa considerable property and would be counted wealthy were it not that she has so many old servants and retain ers, dependents, after the old Ha waiian feudal custom, who draw heavily on her resources, compelling her to practice a rigid economy and an unostentatious style of living. Wed; January Blasts Post and Wife ward. The first three years of their married life was spent at the Waldorf Astoria, and Mrs. Post says she was blissfully happy. Then a woman relative of Mr. Post poisoned his mind, charges the wife, and his love cooled. He refused to take her to phces, and was often In the company of other women, she claims. The climax came when the hus band announced he was going to take another woman riding In his touring car. Mrs. Post says she threatened to follow him if he did, and claims he then knocked her down and oth erwlse mistreated her. Her screams brought hotel employes ami arter relating her story she left her husbaml and has since been liv ing at a Fifth avenue hotel. Mrs. Post claims that in addition to her suit for divorce, she will bring suit against a woman for allienatlng her husband s affections.
