Washington, Jan. 11. In the clos

before the federal supreme court over
tho proposed dissolution of the so
called "tobacco trust," the Issue be
tween the "trust" and the government
became more focalized than ever. This
was particularly true regarding the
Interpretation of the "monopolizing"
section of the Sherman unti-trust law,
which never has been passed upon
by the court.
In Its Interpretation. Junius Par

who was unablu to be In court, said
on behalf of the tobacco organization
that bigness of nn organization was
not a criterion of a monopoly. It was
argued there must be nn exclusion

Statistics and estimates received by
the United States Geological Survey,
trom ell plants known to produce
blister popper from domestic ores and
from all Ij'.ke mines Indicate that the
copper output from mines in the Uni

output. The November figures for a
few companies were not available nnd
these companies furnish estimates for
the last two months of the year. Ac
cording to the statistics and estimates
received, the output of blister and
Luke copper was 1.079.000,000 pounds
as against 1,092951624 'pounds In
Statistics showing the output of re
fined copper hy plants in the United
States are not collected by the (leh

published by the Copper Producers'
association for the first eleven months
of 1910 Indicate that the production
of marketable copper by the regular
refining plants from ul! sources, do
mestic and foreign, will amount to
about 1,448,000,000 pounds, as against
l,40!i,BH),519 pounds In 1909.
For 1910 Arizona again takes the
lead among the copper producing
Mates with an output slightly above
thu production of 1909, which was
291.1 10,298 pounds. The Bisbee dis
trict was the largest producer, with
e.n output of approximately 145.

The output of the Morencl-Mctculf

In the Miami section of this dis

out the year In the development and
construction. The Miami Copper
company practically completed Its
mill and will begin production early
In 1911. The concentrates will he

Considerable ore was added fo the
reserves in blocking out the ore for
extraction, though little effort was
mail.; during the year to Increase the
developed ore.
The Inspiration Copper company
was actively; engaged In development
during the year and It Is reported as
having on October 20. developed ore
amounting to 12,396,000 tons, and
5,604,000 tons of partially developed
ore averaging 2 per cent copper. An
experimental mill was operated by
the company during the latter part of
the year to determine the best method
of treating the ores.
The Live Oak. Waek Warrior, and
other mines of the district have been

Ow'ing to a stronger demand, the
price for tungsten ores was higher In
1910 than in 1903. und the produc
tion therefore rose. The output as (
calculated from returns reccio
rectly from producers r' -t ' '
was the largest so far i- , : n .-.!.
country 1,824 short tons, valued at
J?32,992. Prospecting nnd develop
ment, which have been proceeding
more or less steadily In nn Increasing
ratio for the past seven or eight
years, have found new deposits and
opened known ones, so that there is
now a fairly ready response to mar
ket demands. The Boulder county,
Colorado, field Is still the largest pro
ducing section, end the Atolla, Cali
fornia, field is second. The ore min
ed !n Boulder county Is fcrherite (Iron
tungstate.) The Atolla tungsten ore
is scheelite. The Atolia field is much
smuller than tho Boulder field, and
gives a higher yield proportionate to
area. Returns of 1.221 short tons of
ore carrying 60 per cent tungsten
trioxide have been made by Boulder
county buyers and producers.
The production of 1910 Is believed
to he the largest annual output made
by this or any other country to date,
but the value Is less than that of the
output for 1907, which was 1,640
short tons, valued at $890,048. Very
high prices prevailed during 1907 and
tungsten at one time during that year
reached a price of $11 per unit (1
per cent of a ton In tungsten trioxide).
During 1910 prices ranged from $6.50
to $3.50 per unit for ore carrying 60
per eent or more of tungsten trloxida.
Leaner ores brought a lower price
per un'.t. A little ore was sold as
high i"? $9 or more per unit to buyers
having special needs.
No tungsten ore was produced from
other parts of Colorado than the
Boulder field, although some efforts
have been made to exploit the depos
its near Silverton. In California, be
sides the lar."e production made at
Atolia, e. new scheelite was mined
near Nipton. In Arizona a small
quantity of ore was produced from
oil fields and efforts nt production are
being made anew nenr Oracle. In
Washington some output of wolfra
mite and hubnerlte was made from
three mines In Stevens county near
Deer Trail, Deer Bark, and Loon Lake
and seyera! companies started work
on other deposits In Stevens county.
Considerable, development work was
done on the hubnerlte deposits near
Osceola, and a mill was put up for
concentrating the ore, but no ship
ments were made durlne; the year.
Discoveries of hubnerlte bearing veins
northeast of Osceola, near the Utah
line (some of them are said to be In
Utah), and at Kedllch, Nevada, were
reported during the year.
