to $80 in gold, in the Morton mine.
The output of the Hillsboro gold mines
for the week ended April 18 was 560

The Happy Jaok dump will contribute

Sierra county. It is the oenter of the
placer district and also commands the
business of Dutch Oulch and the Animas
Peak mines.
The Charter Oak mill began Work yes
terday on a choioe lot of screened
placer gravel. An improved No. 5 Hunt
ington mill is used whioh has a capaoity
in that Bort of material of from thirty
and forty tons a day.
Feast's ore hauling teams are making
regular trips from the El Paso Oro mine
to the Bonanza mill. The placers are
alive with gold diggers and a great in

ed by the merchants.
The Hillsboro Advocate reports: The
partial sale and bonding of the Happy
Jack to Iowa capitalists for $20,000, is re
ported this week and as the first im
portant deal of the year is a notable

The G. Q. Vest, the Water Valley, the
Colleen Bawn, the two Oomstocks, the

depth gained. There arastra is not a
modern mill, but the ore is rich.
The Casler mill is pounding away suc
cessfully on Columbus ore and recently
shipped twenty-seven saoks of high grade
concentrates to Denver. It is potting
about ten tons into one.
The Industrial Advertiser: The own
ers of Sunrise No. 1 have about closed a
deal with western parties wherby 500 feet
of development work will be put on the
property at once, and a mill will bo
ereoted as soon as possible. This is a
high grade property and is oertain to be
a heavy producer, whioh will give the
oamp a great send off.
The Oro Fino is situated at the junc
tion Water canon and Copper canon, and
the prinoipal development work has been
done in an inoline and a shaft. The in
cline is 100 feet deep, with a 100-foot
drift to the west, all in ore, while the
east shaft is Beventy feet deep and shows
a splendid free milling ore. The are
body is nowhere less than four feet, and
from that it ranges up to a number of
feet thnt is startling to a man with an un
derstanding of the value of large veins of
free milling ore that will run from $12 a
ton up.

paired, the miners of Gold Hill are get
ting ready to polish the drill again for
the summer.
The Cooney mine and mill, of Mogol
lon, are turning out rich ores and concen
trates and the lessees, Cooney, Coates and
Shible, are in a fair way to become bo
nanza kings.
The Silver City Eagle: Shipments of
gold and silver bullion from this point
have been heavy for the past few weeks.
The shipments from Mogollon eome in
regularly and they are steadily increasing.
Chas. Davenport is reported to have

home market where the miner can get bis
cash when the ore is sampled without

The Silver City Enterprise: The Sheri
dan mill and Little Fanny mine are mak
ing a magnificent record under the able
management of L. W. Tatum, the present

and the five new stations for snpport of
tl.e cable were built, the tramway acd has

of the mountains and a new town has
been started there named Anchor. It is
three miles from La Belle nnd extremely
mihcuit ot access."
Work has already commenced on the
placer mines at E'town, twelve miles
south of La Belle. The season promises
to be the liveliest, and the output of gold
greater than that of any summer for the
past thirty years.
E. I. Jones, of Cripple Creek, has
tramped over the Costilla mining district
and dors not hesitate to prononnce the
La Belle campone of the wonders of New
Mexico. He owns stamp mills and valu

boom.
Gold was first discovered on the present
site of La Belle during the summer of
1868. As it was found to be on the Cos
tilla grant no development work was
then done. In June, 1894, Hon. H. J.
Yonng, of Taos county, had a quantity of
the ore assayed and found that it was
rich in gold. In the following August a
number of miners met at the old Hamil
ton mine and decided to lay out a town
site and begin work. Since then many
claims have been located and worked.
Eighty odd houses have been built at La

OKNEUAL MINING NOTES.
The Mining Review mentions LaBelle as
the coming great camp.
Every mine in the Coohiti district im
proves with depth and development.
The saw mill at Bland, in the Coohiti
mining district, has started up again.
The Raton Range predicts that Colfax
county will head the procession as a gold
producer inis year.
Nelson J. Hyde, the successful gold
hunter, is establishing the basis of a lit
tle fortune in Hell Cannon.
The Oro Fino easily stands at the head
of the list of mines in Water Canon,
New Mexico, owing to its greater devel
opment and splendid showing.
Gold, bright, shining gold: that is what
even the naked eye will disclose, ana
through the glass a rich composite with
gold predominant and free. This oomes
from old Mount Marcy, an easy ride of
three hours southwest of Folsom.
Aotivity and firmness charaterize the
copper market. There are no sellers at
9.50, which tins been offered, and for
small quantities 9 has been paid. Eleo
trolytio has advanced to . Casting is
strong at 9. Expo rts are heavy and will
continue so for some time.
Copper is the principal metal used
these days in manufacturing, mining and
sc'entifio interests, and consequently the
produot of this metal has increased to
wonderful proportions. There was mined
and sent to market during 1884 over
860,000,000 pounds. Of this there was ex
ported about 180,000,000 ponnds, leaving
for home use about the same amount. As
the production of foreign copper did not
exceed 197,000,000 pounds, it will be seen
that the United States aotually mined and
marketed two-thirds of the world's pro
duction. Speaking of the gold mines of New
Mexico a writer in the Denver Mining
Record says: "They have all been found
in the arohean or porphyritio formations;
and they show to-day as much perma
nency, taking them all in all, as is found
in mines of the better class throughout
the world. There is nothing wrong with
them; better management and more ear
nestness in the methods of the miners are
the two things needed to greatly increase
the output of the gold mines of New
Mexico."
