NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT. | Anaconda-Story of Growth of Greatest Mining Company in the World lesting chapters in the story of the cop In an exhaustive review of the his tory and romance of the upbuilding of the Anaconda Copper Mining com pany, Horace C. Baker, editor of the Copper Curb and Mining Outlook, brings out most strongly the reasons for the leadership of Anaconda in the copper world. He says in part: The early history of the Anaconda | company forms one of the most inter per mining industry. Associated with : Marcus Daly in the organization of a -| company, known then simply as a partnership, were J. B. Haggin, George Hearst and Lloyd Tevis. These men had their places, and a conspicuous j place, in the industry, but it was the [genius of Mr. Daly who made the name ! of the mine lie developed a houseword The aeonda Mining company, which in 1895 In E aro Pe as well as America, I partnership was succeeded by the An 1 : Copper company was organized in 1899 [ to control the Anaconda and subsidiary j j ! company. Mr. Daly was the first ! president of the Amalgamated. Up '\'° the time of his death he was the | heroic figure In bronze, the last work ! of St. Gaudens , memory 1,1 a commanding place Main street, Butte, but his greatest j [ monument is the city itself.

A was erected to his lui , Anaconda ' wlth the disappearance of i the Amalgamated, due to the dissolu i tion of the holding company, enjoys increased market favor and takes a . , saou| d not be lost sight of that in this change-over Anaconda shares repre : sent direct ownership in the greatest group of copper mines in the world j practically all of which are located in position as a market leader. The fact the richest copper district yet discov ered. Anaconda shares have been rr ,n p,r,h « '■ °" shares outstanding have been cut in halves. This is a favorable factor ... 250 snares. The company's activities j are now more broad and varied than I ments. It is constantly adding to its r tz r i sewhere - 1 lccee ds to all the functions of Amal samated in its holdings of shares out ; side of Butte and in its adding to the banking strength of the company. Anaconda is earning now about $25, 000,000 a year or more than $10 f share on its proposed capital of 2,331, ever in its history. It is a leader of metallurgical and electrical improve It copper metal selling agency. If present conditions [continue Anaconda will become in p j position to pay dividends of $8 a share ! Deep Mining in Butte. Deep mining is the order of the day The High Ore mine, which has the deepest shaft In the district and is one of the richest properties of Anaconda, has now reached a depth of 3400 feet. at Butte. \ It is stated that the bodies on the 3400 are more valuable than those uncovered levels. ore on the upper It is beginning to toe assured that the mines of Butte will in time operate shafts as deep as those of the Lake copper region. Anaconda has its electrical underground haulage equip ment in good working order on all the lower levels of the High down to the 3000. The electrical rail way is operating on the lower level. Electrical equipment in all the Ana conda mines has supplanted horses and mules which Ore shaft with the exception of some of the upper levels, are a thing of the past. under the old mule horse car system but a few cars a day could be hauled to the shaft for hoist ing, as compared with the dozens that are now handled by the electrical tern. But few people realize the tent of underground development ter ritory in a big system Anaconda. On the 2800 level of the High Ore the ore is hauled by electric cars a distance in some cases of 4200 feet, approximating four-fifths of mile. or sys ex of mines like brought about at the expense of labor [ or the communities that, to a greater ; a In Advance of the Times. One reason for the Anaconda com pany's leadership in the copper mining industry Is due to the fact that it is in advance of the times. It effects econ omies of operation through methods not generally employed, and which, in not a few cases, were originated by it. These savings, It may be said, are not or less degree, are dependent upon It. Its general policy is to maintain its ment of two (2) mills per share was levied upon the capital stock of the corporation, payable to W. E.

Notice of Postponement Notice is hereby given that by order and resolution of the board of direct ors, the time for payment of the above assessment has been postponed to the 18th day of March, 1916, and the sale of delinquent stock has been postponed to the 15th day of April, 1916, at the same hour and place above described. W. E.

The company de pends, then, upon system and improv ed methods of operation to effect those economies that are necessary in the successful conduct of great industrial operations. Chief of these economies in the case It oper of the Anaconda Copper Mining com pany may be mentioned its application of electricity to mining and smelting j Although the company began to j electricity In its mines for power use as | far back as 1902, it was not until re j cent years that the greatest advance in this direction was made. At pres ent the company Is purchasing of the Montana Power company, controlling great plants on the Missouri river near Helena and Great Falls and elsewhere j trical power Indirectly drives the air I energy. The ore from the mines to j the Anaconda smelter Is transported in trains pulled by electric locomotives, At the smelters the copper bearing (rock is crushed by electrical power. Not alone in its mining and trans in that state, 33,000 horse power, all used in the operation smelters and lines. of Its mines, local transportation Electricity Replaces Steam. Gradually electricity Is replacing steam In all the mining operations of the company. Electric power com presses the air with which the great hoisting engines of the district are op erated. Not all of the mines have as yet been equipped with these air en gines, but they will be in time. Elec portation departments is the Anacon ' da company leading. Its smelters are ! m °dels of their type. They attract Perts from all over the world, who go t0 Montana to study mining and met allurgical developments. At the Great Falls plant Is located the highest stack in the world. This chimney is 506 feet high and has an inside diameter of 50 feet. Attached to this stack are con densing flues constructed for the pur pose of eliminating objectionable dust ex and gases. In much the same way the solid particles from the gases passing through the furnaces at the Anaconda plant are controlled. Some of the Butte ores contain compounds of senic and a department Is maintained at the smelting plant to dispose of it and other obnoxious elements, question has received much attention and nothing has been left undone to arrive at a solution of the problem. European as well as Ameri can experts have been employed and elaborate tests and experiments ducted with the result that the Ana conda company has the situation well under control. The department refer red to recovers daily from one to two tons of arsenic from the smelter fumes which are cleaned and cleared of ob jectionable gases in large part before escaping through the big stack, arsenic recovered by this method is commercial product and all of It is shipped to eastern markets ar The smoke con The a Saving By-Products. While not small in anything, the Anaconda company turns products that might easily go to waste.

AN INVALID'S REQUEST. (E. A. Guest in Detroit Free Press) When I am ill and sore beset With all the aches that flesh is heir to, When I must lie in bed and fret And swallow dopes I do not care to When on a table standing near Are powders, capsules, pills in dozens I have no great desire to hear Of something that relieved your cousins. When as you sit beside my bed A violent coughing fit attacks me, And my pale cheeks turn fiery red And you behold how sore it racks me In silence let me cough it out, In silence even let me smother, That's preferable, beyond a doubt, To being told what cured your brother. If you can tell with Just a glance (For all my symptoms plainly show I it). That my disease removed your aunts, Just pass it by. Don't let me know lt. Just bear in mind, I couldn't hope By passing up my daily rations To swallow all the kinds of dope That cured your friends and their relations 615 CEDAR STREET PHONE 23 LIEB BROS Brokers... • • • 1 Members Wallace Stock Exchange Coeur d'Alene Mining Stocks a Specialty.

In a deal whereby a pro perty changes hands, both parties ex perience bitter disappointment, then equal elation. Almost Invariably eith er purchaser or seller gets the best of the bargain. But In the history of the sale and development of the Copper Giant mine In Mohave county, Arizona, now own ed by the United Verde Copper com pany, there Is contained a tale of a double disappointment with a happy ending. When Senator Clark, chief own er of the famous United Verde copper mine, at Jerome, Arlz., paid W. K. Rid enour and associates of Kingman, Ariz., $30,000 for the Copper Giant mine, near blackberry, Ridenour thought lle was selling the property at a falr lle:ure > an(1 Clark believed he was purchasing a property that he needed at a reasonable valuation. At tills stage both sides were highly sat isfied with the deal, but both were soon to he bitterly disappointed. Thought He Unloaded a Dead One. Wm. Neagle, an ore buyer for the United Verde, had prevailed upon Clark to purchase the property, after an exa 'n inat i oa had disclosed that the ores in the superficial workings car ried some 75 per cent slllca> wlth ■ uf * ficlent gold and copper to pay mining and shipping charges. BlUca at that time was in great demand at the Unit ed Verde as converter lining, and as the. Copper Giant ores would give Clark the necessary silica, and pay for It as well, the purchase of the prop erty was speedily consummated, the more readily as the United Verde was then mining silica at great expense. Then came the first disappointment. As depth was gained In the mine the silica content became less and less, until the ores returned but about 20 per cent. At the 550-level, when the silica was practically nil, and because of the then prevailing low price of copper, Clark, in keen disappointment, closed the mine and marked its pur chase price oft as "loss." Naturally, at this time, Ridenour was highly elated In the belief that he had "unloaded a dead one.'' Rich in Copper and Gold. When the United Verde's new smel ter at Clarkdale, of twice the capacity of the former one, was in course of construction, Clark, casting about for a way of increasing tonnage, decided to reopen the Copper Giant, which had then been idle for some time, especial ly as the price of copper was steadily mounting. Neagle was placed In charge of development work, and at the next level, opened what promises to become one of the greatest copper ore bodies in the state. This was the moment of Clark's elation and Ride nour's disappointment. The vein, approximately 16 feet wide has been drifted on for several hun dred feet and shows wonderful con tinuity. Its ores are returning 17 per cent copper and about $8 gold. It has been cut at two levels and seems to be increasing in width and richness as depth Is gained. Over 200 tons of ore are now being shipped dally from the to the Clarkdale smelter.
