The Charity committee of the Roan
of Trade has pleasure in submittini
a report of its work for the fourth
year In 'BIsbee and vicinity.
We bel'eve that organized charity
is a good thing lit any community, at
It directs the good will of the people
and brings them In helpful touch with
each other In assuming some shart
"of the responsibilities and privilege
of making the burdens of like easiei
for the less fortunate among them.
From the beginning of time there
have existed the indigent, dependent
unfortunate and weaker ones. No
community, no matter how prosperout
Is ever entirely without this class 01
people. In many such cases chanty
is only right and Just particularly
where misfortune exists through un
'forseen and unavoidable ctrcumstan
es. or through mistakes made whlet
they are struggling to amend.
Advantages Available
There are many advantages to
gained by organized charity, as It no
only determines the merits of depend
ent cases, but such cases can be giv

In other instances a mother is left

dissipation. Or it may be that illnest
or acldent has been the cause of the
family's distress, when their case it
reported to us, and every effort n
made to bring about a better condition
of things.
One Hundred and Sixty Cases
During the past year one hundred
and sixty-sir cases have been placed
on record. Out of this number then
were forty-one families, some of whom
were given considerable help especial
ly if Illness had been the cause of
their Indigence. These forty-one fam
Hies included one hundred and fifteen
children, most of wbom were supplied
with shoes or better clothing at var
lous times throughout the year. Many
of these children were able to attend
school through the help given them
br the Charity committee. In all one
hundred and fifty-five pairs of sboet-
were given out, and eleven hundred
and fifty articles of clothing dlstribu!
ed among the different families and
Individuals. Some warm bedding was1
also supplied to families where there
wass Illness. Forty-eight cases ot in
ness were given help, and whenever
necessary the physicians' attendance
was given free of charge, the expense
to the Charity committee being on ac
count of hospital fees or the care of
such patients at borne. Out of these
forty-eight cases of illness there were
six tubercular cases.
Turned to County
Five cases where permanent relief
was necessary were turned over to
the county and given help by them,

been receiving help at various times

committee where more tnan tempor

Down near Don l.uis the Copper
Queen company started last weed the
sinking of a new exploration shaft
which Ik to be known as the Wade
Hampton. This marks a new demarka
Uon In the line of exploration work
and in a dliectlou where there has
been comparatively little In this line,
either by big companies or individuals.
It Is one of several plans that tee com
pany has had under contemplation
for some time past and Is the lore
runner of several other announce
ments In regard to new work that
may t oonr be expected.
Other Development Work.
At the Silver Bear, which Ie being
sunk' deeper, a drift Is being put In
it the 00 level while work on the
new timber shaft at the Sacramento
is being continued, drills are still be
ing put down at the Copper King and
porphyry developments are being
pushed. This last work continues to
prove especially satisfactory. Mean
time reduction Is being kept up close
to record figures although somewhat
handicapped for a few days by lach
of water following the eevere freeze
which the district experienced. In this
respect, however, conditions are once1

Production Kept Up.
A short time since ibis company
complained that it could not get
enough cars for the transportation ot

three days with the ore freezing In

but this did not seriously hamper the
output and was speedily ended.
So far as development work goes

Potter Says Southern Na-
natinnal Highway Route
Already Agreed Fixed
Through Arizona
(From El Paso Times)
There appears to be someUUng in
the nature of apprehension that the
movement of the Southern National
H'ghway association for the construc
tion of an automobile highway through
Arizona and New Mexico involves un
effort to deflect the present Border
land route from Its present moorings
via Rodeo and Douglas to Clifton
With that understanding of the s'tua
tlon. a public meeting was held In
Lord8burg, N. M-. a few nights ago In
which they gave expression to their
opposlt'on to the scheme as they saw
It. and hurled something ot a defl at
the Arizona contingent believed to
be backing the movement to Inaugur
ate, the threatened change.
In a communication to the Times ot
last Saturday, Dell M Potter, who ap
pears to be at the bead of the South
ern National Highway movement, and
who has consequently called down up
on himself tbe aispleasure of th03e
who believe he is working against un
established route, explains the new
proposition as follows:
Nearly five years ago- we took up
the fight for a National Highway
through Arizona, and about two years
ago ft route was agreed on, when ev
ery county In Arizona was present
Some time later other routes were
agreed on and work started on same.
The Southern National Highway As
sociation has been organized for tbe
purpose of designating a Southern Na
tlonal Highway, and binding all states
together that we may secure Federal
aid In constructing same.
The part of said National Highway
through Southern California and Ari
zona has been designated and indors
ed by tbe association. And we re
quested New Mexico to join us and
designate the part of Southern X.v
tional Highway through that state. A
convention for,that purpose was called
for January .sixth, to meet In Dem
ng. N. M.
I called the attention of El Paso to
this important meeting, by wire to the
Automobile association, also to tbe
chamber of commerce and suggested
that these bodies send & representa
tive to the meeting, but tbe common
courtesy of a reply wus not eifen giv
en. And later on tbe evening or the
sixth I wired stating the condltiont
and this wire also was Ignored. Dur
lng the convention when tbe route
was being discussed It was agreet
that a line -vhlch would have as an ob
jective point El Paso, would be adopt
ed, providing El Paso sonified a will
ingness to support same, otherwise
another route northeasterly from l.afi
Cruces would fce adopted.
If there is any clash between the
two enterprises it should be adjusted
so that no hvra may result to any
Interest. Vnat the Southwest Is di
rectly Interested In above all else It
the good public highways that are
springing into existence through the
establishment of these automobile
routes and food public thoroughfares
are eomethiug the southwest needs
and must have In Its business. The
Borderland route extending from this
city to San Diev'o, Is the final link in
the Old Trails route from coast to
coast, and practically covers the rout
taken by Gen. Kea.mey from the time
be captured Santa Te in 1SP.S until he
captured San Diegu one year later.
Every historic spot along this gre;at
highway is to, b marked with suit
able monument', and tablets, and it it
a matter of great Interest to the pen
pie of the entire United States, at
tached as it is to a great highway
which Is historical from start to fin
in a well written article regard
ing the Borderland Route by E. P.
Grlndell, of Douglas, which was print
ed a few days aEo, all these facts
were brought out, and Mr. Grlndell
dwelled especially on the riches ol
history pertaining to the route. In
closing his article be said:
The Borderland Route from El Paso
to Douglas and Yuma will furnish its
share of Interesting points of history
to be monumented and marked wi;n
tablets for the Information of the trav

Springs and Kneeling Nun Mountain

at BIsbee. and Douglas will make the

Calumet and Arizona Mining com
"The new smelter for this promm
ent Illsbee organization grows n

It will Le one of t!ie must completi
smelteries for the reduction of all
classes or copper ore In this qountry
and that means the world. Tbe com
pany has een besieged by variou
mining organizations to take ores on
the customs plan, the applications nr
lng made by those who apprec'ate
bat the new smelter will be able to
make very close saving and to give
miners about all there Is in tbe ores.
The favorable contract made with th
Shattuckr-Arlzona has attracted tbe at
tentiou of other miners who are with
out smelters of their own.
There has. been some crit'clsm be
cause the company does not use at
of Its new furnaces fqr the trejtraen
of its own oresi but there's onotli?
side to that Cipper smelting, basoc
on prices prevalent throughout (h
touthwesst Is a! profitable business
andj in addition, it often trausp'rei
that foreign ores are needed for th
best furnace practices. It Is very sel
dom that a mine, produces all the ele
ments for th best smelting results
wholly within itself It has to lm
port ores conlaln'ng elements its owi
lack, and that's one reason why Cal
umet and Arizona may be developing
new mines as well as taking the ores
of other concerns" The company, foi
Illustration, is working one property
where there Is an ore that Is Ideal for
converter linings, having enough pre
clous metal In it to pay all the co-it:
pl the lining material. Then there't
another bunch Vt claims being pros
pected for ores that will be valuable
as a mix with the very rich ores froir
the'r BIsbee "properties. Still anothei
of leaner grada may be mined wltf

would be advantageous to workin
with the rich oxides and sulphide"
from the various BIsbee proiertv
There's a certain mixture that wil'
worh. a mue oeicr man any otnpi
and It I this the company desires
In selecting its custom -patrons it wll
undoubtedly favor those- that will coo
tribute the most of tbe particular kirn
of ore the company desires.
Calumet and Arizona has been ver
fortunate In producing within itsel
ores tnat are practically selt-titixing
direct smelting grades that give tin
most for the least cost, Tjut that It
has worked deeper In its shafts, find
ing more sulphides with each sue
ceedlng level, changes have to be
made in the furnace feed, so that In
the new smelter there are wonderfu
reverbaratories,! and there are also
roasters In which certain ores will ue
treated that are the very latest type
giving the greatest efficiency.
Calumet and Arizona, if It receive!
outside ores Is always looking to the
Interest of its shareholders. Thr
ores It receives under the head o
"custom" will be such as it can handle
to the greatest advantage to Itself as
well as to Its customer. Ine direct
ors are certainly competent to best
serve the interests of the stockholdei
and they always do.
In the meantime Calumet and Ar'
zona is steadily adding to its ore re
serves at its mines In BIsbee. It hat
developed a great valley of ore, verv
rirh In copper and in gold and It now
has enough of which It knows to keep
the new smelter going for many years,
more than tbe youngest shareholder
of today will leave to see exhausted
Te directors have their eyes open to
the available good things, and lose no
opportunity to pick up any bargains
that may be offered In that great min
eral district. ,
Calumet and Arizona has been built
up in a big permanent way and Is one
of tbe Ibeat investments In tbe copper
list of which we know. -It Isn't a
stock-jobbing organization, but one of
practical, mining and smelt'ng kind.
It Is after tbe copper
than the one for tbe ocean-to-ocean
highway which was approved by the
Arizona Good Roads association. Sow
this route has been abandoned by Col.
Potter and we find him down on the
Borderland route trying to divert St
throcgu tls favored, but uninteresting
section of the state. This will no; be
possible because the most Interesting
part of the Borderland route Is that
part which passes through Cochise
and Pima counties, taking In as it
does the great smelting works t

Frisco Gold Mines Company
The past jear has been one of suc
cess for the Frisco Com Mines com-;
tiany, operating the Gold Crown Groun
of mines In the Union Pass section.
While the mill operated has no the
capacity that the mining possibiliti"
of the property warrants It has durln?
the year 1912 crushed and put througl
(he filters approximately 1 1,000 tons ot
ore. From this tonnage there was exr
traded in bullion $113,000 In gold
The work of taking out this great
nass of ore was accomplished wltl,
about twelve men. the breaking of the
rock being all done by hand, no power
drills being used In the mine.
The Gold Crown group has beeri
under the management of E. H. Bar
ton, a well known Pacific coast min
ing man. Recent illness. ha$ compelled
him to relinquish tbe personal mana
gement and R. U. Dlmmlck has had
charge of the property, getting splcn
did results in both mine and mill.
The property is situated about twenty
miles west of Kingman In the Blue
Ridge range of mountains. The vein
lies In tbe broken hills west of the
main range and has a dip to the east
of about twenty degrees. The vein Is
enormous in size, ranging in thlcK
ness from thirty-five feet to seventy
feet, al carry'ng values In gold. As
Is Indicated by the recovery, the ore
milled carried values averaging twelve
dollars to the ton. which from tb.it
immense vein would give some Idea
of the possibilities. It is estimated
that. more than $12,000,000 are now in
sight In the property and only needs
a 'great milling plant to make It one
of the greatest mines In the west.

We regret our Inability to give the
production of the Gold Roat mines

has been greatly augumented during

At the mines development has been
carried Into the new groi'nd to the

of the mine with tram to tbe mill It
is expected that the richest ore will

Lead Ores to El Pao
A new feature at the Shattuck this
month is the shipments of lead ore
which is being taken from the three.
four, and five and six hundred lev
els. So far this month 350 tons or
this ore has beeen snt to the El Paso
imelter. This ore Is running in valuer
10 per cent lead. 3 per cent copper
and $7 in gold and silver values. It
.s expected that shipments of this ore
will amount to. five hundred tons
monthly in the future.
The ore now going to Douglas !s
averaging 8 per cent copper and is
om'ng mostly from the six hundred
nd below. The deepest workings 'n
he property is 900 feet.
Superintendent Arthur Houle stated
yesterday that the present force at
the Shattuck amounted to 225 men, ot
w-hom 190 are under ground. Develop
ment work Is going forward on the
three, four, five and six hundred lev
els at the rate of nine hundred feet
per month.
On the three hundred level during
he past month an ore body was cut
for a distance of forty feet which is
enormously rich, amounting to :;) per
cent copper and $23 in gold and biI
ver values. About the three hundred
which is yet virgin ground some fine
developments are expected. A sur
face tunnel has been started to, ciii
ihejShattuck fault.
Good results have recently come from
levelopment work on the Ieo-claim,
eleven hundred feet ot the working
shaft! This Is absolutely new terri
tory and work Is proceeding on the
four and five hundred levels.
Is Fine Propeity
As work continues on the Shattuck
Its great value continues to be dem
on3trated and already It has yielded
fine profits to its owners. Resump
tion of dividend paying came last
month and It Is expected at the pres
ent rate of shipments the property
will easily pay two dollars per share
besides increasing its surplus. The
Shattuck consists of six claims which

This is Third New One Dur
ing Past Few Months and
More Are Coming Jan
uary Output 9,000,000.
CAS'ANEA, Son., Mex., January 18,
The third new converter during the
past few months has been received
by the Cananea Consolidated Copper
company and Is at present being in
stalled In the smelter. Other con
verters of the same pattern are to be
Installed soon, having already been
ordered. When all the new converters
ordered are installed there will be no
old-style converters in the plant and
the capacity of the smelter will be
considerably Increased- The new con
verter will be placed In operation dur
ing the coming .week. From present
Indications the output of the smelter
for the month of January will be cloe
to 9,000,000 pounds.
The Democrata company is at pres
ent operating its smelter at a rate
which gives an output of a little over
20,000 pounds of copper dally I.ater
this will be Increased gradually until
the plant is operating at the rate ot
about 1,230.000 pounds monthly. There
are now- 350 men being, employed at
the property. Most! ot the operations
are being confined to the lower levels
of the mine, where all the bad spots
are being caught up, drifts straight
ened out, retimbered, etc., and the
mine is in better shape now than it
was when work was abandoned a mini
ber of years ago. All the new equ p
ment has been Installed and every
thing Is running smoothly.
The Transvaal Mining companv,
whose protierty is located below Cum-
pas In the Moctezuma district, has re
sumed operations alter an lateness
extending from last spring. Shipments
to the ouglas smelter of the Copper
Queen Company have resumed. The
property was forced to close down
last spring owing to the activities of
the rebels. By means of extensive
diamond drilling operations in the
past considerable ore has' been en
countered but development of tli oie
bodies, except on a comparatively
small scale, has not been -done.
