Tho advent of tho "Bait Lako
crowd" Into copper mining In Arir.ona
looks certain to prove nn epochal
event, snys a writer In the Los Angeles
Times. Arizona now leads tho world
into the production of copper leads
Montana and Michigan by a very long
lead, the former by 20,000,000 ppunds,
and the latter by 38,000,000 a year.
That was for 1007. My judgment is
thnt her lend will bo as good as thnt
this year and probably a llttlo bettor.
Arizona's copper output Is produced
nt a lower cost than any other region
in the world is ablo to produce nn
equal quantity observe, 1 say, an
equal qanntlty. Arizona does not pro
dure her copper at as low n cost as
I'tah, but Utah does not, and probably
never can, produce an much copper as
Arizona hasn't the deposits.
Charles M. McNeill has a irroat Ari
zona proposition in many points strik
ingly like his rtan proposition, but it
appears to be a good deal bigger in
volume tnroe or lour times ns lug
and a llttlo richer in the avcracc ten
or of the output. It in distinctly a
very low grade sulphide ore, but it av
erages six pounds more of copper to
the ton, but probability from 10 to l.r.
cents less in gold and silver to tho ton
than tho Utah property, I would esti
mate that it is worth about 75 cents n
ton more than his Utah ore.
It chances that I had examined and
reported on this crst Hay property
for a client myself before the McNeill
crowd took it over, and so I am ablo
to speak closely as to its cmnts. I
ndvised my client to take it at tho
price asked, but 1 ndvised bim also
that it would be a hopeless enterprise
without a working capital (including
cost of operating plant) of three mil
lions, lie wns n wenlthy man, or good
mining experience nml plenty of cour
age, and he wanted it, but it got past
him somehow and fell to McNeill and
his followers.
I am confident that it is destined to
rank ultimately nsuc of tho greatest
prodncern in Arizona anil Arizona
leads the world. It has now proved
iiji by shnfts, thrifts, tunnels and drill
holes over four times tho acreage of
too IHnh Copper Company 825 acres
as against "00 acres. And it has a
great acreage undeveloped, but bo
lieved to bo valuable.
The ore represents a milling problem
closely identical with that of the Utah
property -a disseminated sulphide iu
a matrix that make n troublesome
amount of "tale" really a scriclte,
a hydrnteil, white magnosimu mica
under tho stamps. This will inevitably
entail a largo loss of tho copper. It
does everywhere. Hut they claim to
be now saving 75 per cent of the met
allic values in the groat now concen
trators at Kly, Nov., on a similar ore,
and they should do as well at Hay.
Tnal' means a saving on a 2i. per cent
ore of about 117 pounds of copper to
tho ton. I think it perfectly safe to
calculate on a saving of 30 pounds of
copper to the ton and 25 cents in gold
and silver. Thnt strikes western min
ers as hopelessly Uw. Hut It isn't
hopeless at Jill, frilly "no mine in
tho Michigan field averages as high as
As for the smelting, that may cost
a trlllo more than the Utah-coko will
be higher. The Hay people will pro
bably smelt tneir vast tonnago of con-

plant of tho great London
Arizona mine, fifteen miles up the Gila
from their mill. This latter property
is the greatest undeveloped piece of
copper ground in Arizona, and, being
in tho limestone, its copper Is largely
in the carbonate condition, so that the
sulphides of tho Hay will bo a boon to
it. There are some surface indications
that, tho two great companies will bo
operated ns hand and glove to ench
other, and Los Angeles capital Is in
vested in both. In fnet, n largo part
of too London Arizona .stock is owned
by l.os Angeles people.
Although both of these vast depos
its, which nro within fifteen miles of
each other, result from tho same oro
graphic disturbance of the earth's
crust-the upheaval of tho London
mountain range-the mineral c'laracter
of tho Hay is like tnat of tho Utah
Copper, whllo that of the I.ondon
Arrona closely resembles tho charac
ter of tho great Hisbeo district 11
southeastern Arizonn, both lying
the carboniferous limestone.
Iloth the Hay and tho London are
el.yond a rational doubt very great
properties, but the Loudon-Arlzona
carries a direct smelting and perfectly
MdMiuxliig ore, and will, therefore,
produce its fliit''"l foim;r nt a lower
cost than any concentrating mine can
ponslbly do.

spoken five minutes the crowd began
to leave in largo numbers, resulting in
such confusion that Hearst was com
pelled to cease speaking for some min
utes. About half the audience remained
until the close of tho address.
Hearst devoted his time to an at

Reports Attorney General
Clark Back From
Cameron Tour
fl'rom Tuesdajr'H Dally)
lust returned from the triumphant
tour of Halph Cameron, Attorney Gen
eral K. H. Clark gives a glowing ac
count of approaching Hcpublican suc
cess. He says: "I met Cameron and his
party at Solomonville, Ornham county,
on Monday last, .loseph K. Morrison,
an old Prescott Itepublicnn, was with
nlm, accompanied by a large number
of enthusiastic Kepublicans who wore
escorting Halph through that portion
of the territory.
"Meetings "were held nt Solomon
vllle, Saironl and Thatcher, iu the
Oila valley, nnd during the day times
impromptu reception were being held
almost constantly. At the meetings,
all of which were limited only by the
capacity of the halls, staiidi'iig room
being at a premium, too utmost en
thusiasm prevailed. The large audi
ences invariably lingered long after
tho meeting!! had adj'jurnd. to greet
and tall! with the popular KcpubTicnii
"In fact, Cameron's progress
through the vallyy was a triumphal
march; one ovation following another
iu quick succession. The substantial
people of that magnificent fanning re
gion have literally been captivated by
the irresistible personality and win
ning ways of Halph, and with their
unerring estimate of cnarnctor they
have recognized in him tho mnn of the
hour the one who can and will accom
plish great things for Arizona. The
slump in Mark Smith's former strength
there it so apparent that predictions
are being freely made by-xonscrvotive
residents that Itnlph will carry the
county. At any rate, the voto there
for 11 iin will bo so heavy as to aston
ish those who are figuring on a large
Smith majority.
"Hut the Cameron meeting at Olnbo
on Thursday evening simply broke all
reconls. .Nothing like It has ever lieen
M'oii in Arizona. An immense crowd
met him nt the train, with a splendid
band, and as he stepped from the train
a thousand people broke into tremen
dous cheers and a thousand of the fa
mous "Cameron pennants" Hashed
into a field of fluttering color.
"Vyithout time for rest or dinner e
wns taken to the new and spacious
theater, tilled to its limits, oven tho
aisles being packed. As Cameron en
tered, tho demonstration wns deafen
ing, and the great auditorium literally
rocked with npplauso. His speech oc
casioned a similar ovation, and after
tho meeting, an informal reception wns
held which lasted until long nfter
midnight. I have seen many politcal
meetings iu Arizona, but nothing
which even approached this one. (Hobo
is ablaze witn Cameron sentiment, and
(liln county may be counted on as
safely in the Cameron column.
"In every camp south the miners
are rallying strongly to Cameron, nnd
his vigorous anil strenuous campaign
appeals to their western spirit. His
boundless energy elicits admiration
everywhere and new friends and sup
portors are dally jolhing forces with
his niunberlesM obi ones.
"It is Cameron's yenr. Iu my
judgment he will go to congress with
tho largest majority ever given In
Arizona, and he will set a staudnrd pf
achievement there which futuro Art
