PIONEER SILVER'SILVER BELT ISl BONANZAS TO BE REVIVED (From T.iesday's Daily. DEAL CLOSED YESTERDAY FOR THE FAMOUS DOS A R I S, BUZZARD AND RAVEN; WORK TO BE GIN AT ONCE. (From Tuesday's Daily.) One of the most important mining deals ever closed in this field for the interest linked to early day doings when silver reigned as a standard metal, was that announced yesterday wherein the old Dos Oris went to J. B. Tomlinson, who represented an eastern syndicate. The Buzzard and the Raven, which are associated with the Dos Oris, all three being patent ed, and owned by R. H. Burmister, were included in this transaction. The examinations of tjie three had been recently, made by competent mining engineers, and with data preserved from all in returns received from the mint and smelting works, with the at tractive mineral possibilities in evi dence for supporting their revival, there was little hesitancy in arriving at a favorable conclusion of the ne gotiations. Another factor in evi dence on all three mines is the limit ed development given, which, when contrasted with an established pro duction of over $166,000 in two years of the Dos Oris, and $30,000 during the time the Buzzard and Raven were operated, the inducement was flattering for capital to again step in and resume business, which is to be- cin at once. All three of the mines suspended as long ago as 1885, due mainly to company troubles in which litigation followed for years aftcr- wanL. It is an old, but common saying that the richer the mine, the more the trouble, and the old Dos Oris is but an exemplification of this adage. It was rated in the long ago as the prince of silver mines, and justly sustained this reputation while it was active. The last sale to face it was for a one-quarter interest which sold for the sum of $25,000. All three have remained dormant since 1885, except at occasional times when a chloridcr made a small clean up and could not face expenses in currcd in actual or practical develop ment to any depth whatever. Under the new order modern ma chinery is to be placed in action at encc. and a camb constructed. The reviving of this trinity of silver mines of old marks another advance in mines and mining and brings back memory that the old ones arc the best after all, as is so emphatically being demonstrated in the present era, as the pioneer properties are making bonanzas of the day. All the mines arc only 14 miles from this city. NEED FOODSTUFFS. ZURICH. Feb. 7 The Berlin cor respondent of the Frankfurter Z'citung reports the organization ot a syndi cate for the purpose of bringing brcadstuffs from Russia to Germany. It says the government will havc a half-interest in the undertaking and the other half will be in the hands of large wholesale dealers. The grain will be delivered to the War Grain Department, which assumes all risks of transport and delivery. Similar syndicates arc to be organized in Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey. MONUMENT FOR FRANCE PARIS, Feb. 9. foreign Minister Pichon today notified the American Ambassador, William G. Sharp, that the French cabinet, on behalf of the government, would accept a monu ment commemorating the battle of the Marnc, which has been offered by the American committee. A NERVOUS WRECK ,c . . e From Three Years Suffering. Say Cardui Made Her Well. Texas City, Tex. In an interesting statement, Mrs. G. H. Schill, of thistown, says: "For three years I suffered untold agony with my head. I was unable to do any of my work. I just wanted to sleep all the time, for that was the only ease I could get, when I was asleep. I became a nervous wreck Just from the awful suffering with my head. I was so nervous that the least noise would make me jump out of my bed. I had no energy, and was unable to do anything. My son, a young boy, had to do all my household duties. I was not able to do anything until 1 took Cardui. I took three bottles in all. and it surely cured me of those awful headaches. That has been three years ago, and I know the cure is permanent, I for I have never had any headache since taking Cardui. . . Nothing relieved me until I took Cardui. It did wonders for me." Try Cardui for your troubles made torn medicinal ingredients recommended la medical books as being of benefit in ! female troubles, and 40 years of use has ' proven that the books are right. Begin! taking Cardui today. NC-13J 1 HITTING THE HIGH A ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS YESTER DAY, MANY ATTENDING;! RESUME OF DEVELOP MENT SATISFACTORY. (From Tuesday's Daily.) At the annual meeting held yester ciay by the Silver Belt Consolidated at the mine camp near Humboldt, the attendance was larger than at any time since the company was formed The board of directors elected was as follows: J. J. Mahony, Jr., Col. J. B. Dudley, H. J. Mahony, Joseph G Harney, Benjamin Rybon, G. L. Prentiss, R. H. Burmister. Later of ficers were elected as follows for the ensuing year: J. J. Mahony, president, and Col J B. Dudley, secretary-treasurer. .C S. Arthur was retained as superin tendent, while H. J.i-Mahony is to remain on the ground in the capacity of representative. The mine situation was found grati-f3-ing, development going ahead at two points on the 114-foot leve', where drifting north and an upraise arc producting a high-grade silver lead content, assays giving 120 ounces in silver to the ton, and 17 per cent in lead. These values are from a 12-j ir.cn vein, while three tcct gives good nulling grade. The striking the north drift of the above high grade shoot is the most important determination yet made and is con sidered as gratifying by those inter ested. It is now planned to begin cross cutting from that zone to the cast in virgin ground when additional surprises are anticipated. Development is to continue, and at no time in the history of the reviving of this famed silver property of early days is the situation so gratifying as at present for this old white metal producer to come back and again assume its former high-class rating.
