The permanent water region in llie
Grand Ctntrnl mine has been found, and
at 18 feel below where first struck, the flow
became so strong thitt work hud to be
suspended last Wednesday, and now it lms
raised up to the point where the first seep
age was discovered, muking 18 feet in
the shaft. -No further sinking can be done
until a pump is put in to bundle the con.
stantly increasing flow as they go down.
Mr. E. B. Uugc, superintendent of the
mine, is now East, having been called
away by the death of his mother, which
occurred in Lowell, Mass. Ho will be ab
sent a month or six weeks, and until his
retum no decisive action will be taken as

Jmmedlaicly put in, or the work of (level
opmcut be continued from the COO foot

machinery whin ho leturns, it will take
at least ninety days to get it In working
order, tliertJire, under the most favorable
clicumsiancts, at leitt four months must
elapse before any sinking can he done.
There is a very great interest foil in this
matter by every miner in the district,
for the reason that so much de

is quite as strong on the 000 foot level as
at any point above, and quite as well de

served, which was noted in our report last
week, that the ore has become nearly all

..However this may bo to-day, no deductions

The combination itlr shaft (incline),
since its connection with the slopes, creates
the most perfect ventilation, the druft ol

now 85 feet deep, and being still pushed

interest felt in the production of the
metal in other localities liable to
affect the stability of the market.
There aro some exceedingly inter
esting statistics in paper number
tliroe, on "The History of tityper
Mining of Lake Superior," published
in the Engineering and Mining Jour
nal, of Now York, Marcii 25th. In
speaking of the Calumet & Hecla,
tho author, Charles E. Wright, com
missioner of mineral statistics for
the Slate of Michigan, says.
At the close of .18(35 its stock was

called for lo it share, am' 'iat' re
turned that amount to its sha,-eJoid-ers
in the sliapo of dividends. .Since
then tlieso have been continued quur
terly, with occasional extra divi
dends, making, in tho aggregate,
0,350,000, the mine paying besides
for tho grandest equipment in the
possession of any one mining com
pany on tho continent. By tho ex
tensive, use of power drills 02 Rand
drills being at woik and an elabo
rate plant for pumping, hoisting,
overground transport-ition, stamping
and dressing, this mine handles over
1,000 tons of rock per day, almost all
of it being rich enough to be pro
fitably treated. It is thus in a po
sition to produce annually from
15.000 to 10,000 tons of refined cop
per, from oro that yielded in 1875
4A per cent of that metal
The Calumet & Hecla does not,
like many other Lake Superior min
ing companies, print full statements
las to tho cost of mining and dress
ing; and as none of tho others ap
proach it in magnitude or aro similar
enough in character of tho. rook
worked, it vWould not be possible to
make approximately fair deductions
from their results. To give a"n idea,
however, wo may assume that as the
dividends amounted to $2,000,000 in
1881, on a product of 32,000,000
pounds, the balance of receipts from
sales ofcopber (say 5;ti00,000) was
the cosfofproduotion, or $.T,(iOO,000,

In addition to a. brief history of
this celebrated mine we have arrived
at the most important factor in this
whole question, and that 'is, tho cost
or." production to this one company,
which alono stands in a position to
fix the price of copper in the markets
of the United States. It will be seen'
that should the supply increase to
such an extent that the price would
fall below 11 cents per pound, Calu
met & Hecla will either bo. com
pelled to close down or run at a
loss. None of the other Lake Su
perior companies are in a condition
to produce copper at -so low a figure
as this mammoth corporation. The
question with Arizona companies is,
can they produce copper at n lower
rate than 11 cents per pound? We
do not know how it is with the-CiiftS'rir
mine, but can answer for the Copper
Queen. The conditions surrounding
this company are such that the abso
lute cost of production and market
ing does not, probably, reach 10 cents,
and possi' ly not over 8 cents per
pound, aud . with more extensive
works and a railroad to Bisbee, by
which freights wold bo lessened,
the actual cost might be reduced to
as low a figure as G cents. Of the
Santa Catalina companios no esti
mate can bo mado until their fur
naces aro running and the tractabll
ity of the oro for reduction is estab
lished. So it is of the Peabody and
Black Bear companies, and in fact all
others than the Clifton, whose repu
tation has long been established.
Should the many mines in this terri
tory that are now being put upon a
working, and wo trust, paying basis,
turn out anywhero near so well as
Copper Queen and Clifton then Lake
Superior will have to do better in the
future thai) she has in the past or
submit to a gradual extinguishment.
The following is the latest New
York quotations and remarks on tho
subject of. copper, taken from tho
Engineering and Mining Journal:
Tha deadlock between producers
and consumers still continues, and
tho situation remains practically as
it has been for weeks. Nothing has
been done, and the mining companies
insist firmly on l!)c., while actually
small lots of Lake came into the
market at 1919.jo. Arizona cop
per is commencing to assume a. posi
tion in the markets, and while it is
not sold at figmes quite as high as
those of Lake, those who have tried
it confirm the inferences whiih may
bo drawn from the reports and chem
ical analyses as to its quality. The
concessions' now mado are those inci
dent to the introduction of a new
brand. The Ansonia Brass and Coo
per company, who get tho Copper
Queen black copper, refine it and
market the excess over their own re
quirements. To their plant of three
six-ton ordinary refilling furnaces,
they have recently added, at great
expense, a Siemens legenerative teu
ton refining furnace, the first one put
up in the country for the purpose.
The object has been to avoid by this
means the changes in tho pitch of
the metal, which so easily occur in
ordinary refining, and to secure uni
formity of product, an important de
parture. Their copper is quoted at
Now that the bosses have returned
from their bootless raid and the boys
have been compelled to take a back
seat, business around the sheriffs of
fice languishes. How would it look
if the next expedition were sent out
after iho "gentlemon" participating
in tho last Bisbee stage robbery,
who aro known to be in tho neigh
borhood, and for whom warrants
have beon issued ? And would the
gentlemen composing tho last pose
go ? And if they went would they
bring them in ? We await a reply
to these qouries.
Tiik maudlin sentimentality dis
played by tho Nugget over a dead
murderer and thief is only equaled
by tho sickening sympathy always
shown by that journal for a liyo one.
When tho sentiment of this com
munity is such that it will not toler

sympathizers, wo may expect pros
