PAGE THREE LIEUT. COL 40LMBERG OF REAPER COMMANDANT OF FORT WHIPPLE FIGHTS LOSING xjrt. i iiij r kj n c vv n.n.rk. WITH INFLUENZA AND PNEUMONIA; VAS ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN AR MY MEN IN THE SOUTH WEST AND LOSS AT LO CAL POST WILL BE KEENLY FELT. (From Thursday's Daily.) Lieutenant Colonel Carl Edward Holmberg, U. S. A., commandant at; Fort Whipple, passed away yester- j day morning at 11 o'clock at the post j following an illness of eight days from the effects of the deadly com- ! bination of influenza and pneumonia, j The word of the passing of this popu- j lar and beloved officer conveyed a ! distinct shock to both the local civ ilian population and to the enlisted men, C' l. Holmberg having been (hiring his lifetime one of the most agreeable and likeable men who ever resided in Prescott. He had been a resident of this city since early in May, at which time he came here from Ft. Bayard, Xew Mex;co, to assume charge of the big army hos pital which had been reccntl- estab lished at the historic eld post north of the city. Colonel Holrnbcrg's illness dated from Tuesday, December 24thT On Monday he had been at his office at the post and had attended to his rou tine duties, making several trips to Prescott. Tuesday morning he was compelled to take to his bed. the early stages of the malady having been of such a nature as to render an accurate diagnosis impossible for several days. Tie was placed under the care of the most skilled physic ians and nurses which the hospital afforded, and during the remainder of the week he appeared to grow slightly better. On Monday last, however, he had a sinking spell and it was for a time believed that he would not live through the night. He did manage to fight off the grim spectre of death at that time and on Tuesday seemed to posses added strength which gave those about him hope that he might after all cheat the reaper. Tuesday night found the patient in a more weakened condi- tion, and it was noted that his disso lution appeared near. He passed the ni'-:ht in a state of semi-consciousness. He failed to rally and the breaking dawn found him in a dying condition. Shortly after 11 o'clock, the starry banner which floated at the top of the slim white pole on the parade grounds at the fort was low ered to half mast. The soldier hail lost his fight with man's mortal enemy. Carl Edward Holmberg was born in Sweden on August 17, 1S79. He came to the United States with the family while still a hoy, the parents and children taking up their resi dence at Saginaw, Michigan. Dis playing early a marked inclination toward the medical profession, he later attended the medical college of Jefferson University at Philadelphia, graduating from that institution in 1908. He then became connected with the Michigan State hospital at Kalamazoo in the capacity of assist ant surgeon, remaining there for about one year. It was in 1909 that his military career began. He joined the Unted States army in September of that year, and shortly afterwards entered the army medical college at Washington for a course in post graduate work. Following his grad uation from that institution he was assigned to one of the military posts near the Presidio in the San Francis co district. He remained there until 1914. having in the meantime been made a captain in the medical corps. In 1914 he was transferred to Ma nila, P. I , and remained at Fort Mc Kinley for a period of two years. Upon his return to the United States from the islands in 1916, he was detailed to the army hospital at Fort Bayard, Silver City. New Mex ico. In May, 1917, he was promoted to a majority as a. recognition of his skill as a physician and surgeon and because of his great interest in army work. When the war department derided to establish the bi.j hospital at Whip ple Barracks at Prescott. Major Holmberg was selected as command ant n.'ih because of his army train ing as a phician and also because he had come to bo recognized as a man possessed of great executive ability and one particularly well stat ed to handle so Urge a project as the o.ie which the g vcrn-.ucnt had in contemplation for Whipple. Ac companied by his wife. Major Holm bertr arrived in Prescott last May and the i-fficrr at once took over his strenuous duties jn connection with the detail work incident to the form ative stages of the big movement. Shortly after his arrival iierc he was made a lieutenant colonel, and It was this rank he possessed at the time of his demise. From the time of his first official a.-t. it wls seen that the department had chosen the right man for the right place, and the activities at W hipple proceeded with a clock-like regularity under his supervision. All of the problems which had ar:sen from the lack of adequate housing space during the early days of the opening of the post were met by Col. H"lmberg, and so well was his management thought of at W'ashing t":i that he was several times in re ceipt of congratulatory messages from the officials high up in the war department. Col. Holmberg also found time to freely mingle with the local populace, attended the meet ings of the Chamber of Commerce and was willing and happy at all times to extendi any courtesy or fur nish any aid to the Prescott people when it was in his power to do so. He was a member in good stand ing of the American Medical Asso ciation and also belonged to the Na tional Association of Military Sur geons, lie leaves to mourn his pass ing, in addition to his wife, his pa rents, Mr. and Mrs. J. X. Holmberg of Saginaw, and several sisters. The mother upon receipt of telegraphic advise of her son's death left Saginaw yesterday evening for Trescott and expects to reach this city on Friday afternoon. Except for the fact that the remains will be taken to the Michigan home for interment, no details regarding the funeral have been arranged, the plans being large ly contingent upon the wishes of the wid"W and the mother. PATIENT PEOPLE FINALLY REAP REWARD. fFrom Thursday's Daily .1 Xearly fifteen years have elapsed since the Brigar.za Mining Company first operated the Henrietta gold mine in the Big Bug ditrirt, and only a few years ago did the many resident and non-resident stockhold ers reap the benefit of that old-time investment by tiie sale of that prop erty to the Big Ledge Development Company. Col. J. C. Rankin, who has been a principal of the retiring company from its inception, stated yesttrday that all who have retain ed their interest, of whom are some in Prescott, will receive the benefit of the sale, which netted $100,000, this sum having been paid by the purchaser. During all these years Col. Rankin has retained his corpor ate relation with the-Bracanza as president and has assumed a pro tectorate supervision of its share holders, confident that his optimism would sooner or later be exempli fied. During the earlier life of this mine iis stock was desirably rated, and its dividends were paid regularly. It lapsed into a state of intermittent operations because of the increased outlay of capital necessary to ex plore along larger lines of develop ment, while labor troubles also in terfered with its affairs. For many months its product sustained a heavy expense of niaintaininc: nearly 70 miners, and it was handicapped by a prartically useless stamp mill, its ores being of a free milling charac ter. Deep development was initiat ed, and it is due to this considera tion, which has been in recent months carried out by the Big I.edge under an agreement, that de terminations have proven the wis dom of early day plans so as to jus tify the outright sale of this attract ively rated group, which at last pass es out of the hands of the original owners. From such reliable sources as the practice! miners employed at present at the Henrietta, it is stated that the mine has now passed out of the sphere of a possibility into the real ity of being incontrovertibly proven, thereby fulfilling early anticipations in development reaching certain zones. Colonel Rankin, in leaving the P.ra garza yesterday stated that he will continue to operate in this and Mo have counties, and by way of a pretty coincidence he closed the deal with the Big I.edge on the identical day he arrived in Prescott, 35 years ago, which was last Saturday, De cember 23. Journal-Miner for fine job work. MANY MILLIONS SPENT IN JUL MING FUNIS DESPITE WAR CONDITIONS HUGE SUM WAS EXPEND ED IN DEVELOPMENT AND JN SMELTING AND REFINING INDUSTRY. (From Thursday's Daily.) In spite of hhMi cost of materials and labor and of various other re tarding influences, new equipment with value of more than $ 1 0,000,000 has been brought into mining serv ice in, Arizona during this year. The largot single item in the total represents the new United Verde Extension smelter in the Verde dis trict. A large amount of money was spent in the same district in bringing in higher capacity and greater efficiency at the United Verde smelter, work that continues in progress with splendid results at tending. . Douglas smelters of the Phelps Dodge and C. & A. also received large expenditures for betterments that have much increased efficiency of plant operation. At Miami, com pletion was made of important addi tion to Miami Copper company pow er plant, and at the Inspiration there was considerable expenditure for mine equipment betterments, as there was also at the Old Dominion and ether properties in the Globe district. These expenditures made larger production of copper immedi ately available, at the same time providing permanent gains in plant efficiency. The year added two new concen trators of large tonnage to the num ber operating in the state, while sev eral smaller plants were erected and pft in operation, inclusive of those m the World's Fair and Flux mines in the Patagonia district. One great new plant was brought under con struction, that of Phelps-Dodge in tine Warren district, designed to treat Sacramento II ill steam shovel ores. The two large plants put in operation were those of Ray Her cules and Sha'ttuck Copper com panies. Both have come into the il' livery of excellent results, follow ing the perior of minor alterations and readjustment common to break :ig in of new equipment. Steel and machinery for the Phelps-Dodge mill are arriving on the site, where grading is far along and some construction under way. but speed originally planned for thh work and preparation of Sacrament' lull for production has been slowed down by reason of federal requests and requisitions of materials from t'iw to time. Progress made in improvements by both smelting and milling enter prises in the state in 1918 represent long strides in conservation. All the expenditures have meant greater recovery of values, coupled In the main with Vsser requirements for man powor and the making available of lower grade ores, points tinor which the mines, mills and smelter? were compelled to concentrate dur ing the war period. Experimental work in a!i divisions is unceasing and there is much that will be brought into practice within the next few years that will have advantage for the mining industry generally. With these advances there is pro pvrtionate pain to ere reserves, be cause of the making available of lower grades than previously were amenable to profitable treatment. i OUTPUT OF ARIZ. MINES DURING YEAR JUST PAST j EXCEEDED $200,000,000.1 The output of gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc from Arizona mines in 1918, according to the estimate of Victor C. Hoikes. of the United States geologictd survey, department of the interior, lias a total value of about $205,500,000, an increase of S3, WiO.IV'O. There were decided in creases in both the copper and the gold of Arizona during the year. The silver output was very close to the production of 1917, but the lead was only half as much, and the zinc fell to a very small production. Arizona was fortunate in being prac tically free from strikes, and all the smelting plants were active through out the year. The production of gold from Ari zona mines increased from $5,088,193 in 1917 to about $5,551,000 in 191S. This was an increase of nearly $300, 001 in spite of the increase in the cost of supplies and the difficulties in procuring men for labor. A large part of the gold was obtained from the smelting of copper ores, the ton nage of which was increased mark edly during the year, but nearly half . of Arizona's total gold output was ; jd:ic to the cyanidation of gold ores I in the San Francisco district, of Mo j have county, known as the Oatman j region. The United Eastern remain j ed by fir the largest gold producer; lot the state, and the Tom Reed con-i tinned to supply notable gold output. I The (ld Road mine was not pro-; ductive, and the output of the Cop-, per Chief in W-rdc district was much j less. The mine output of silver decreas- j ed slightly, from 6.9S."!,91.'i ounces in 1917 to about 6 787.000 ounces in 1918. On account of the increase in the price of silver, the value of the j output increased from 55,754.744 to j about $6,569,000. It is probable that j the slight decrease in quantity re I suited from a decrease in shipments of lead ore, which contains consider able silver. The increase in the cop I per output came partly from ores which contained little or no silver, j such as the Xew Cornelia at Ajo. I The mine output of copper increas cd from 712,166,891 pounds in 1917 to nearly 777,000,000 in 1918. In j spite of this increase of nearly 65, 1 000,1X10 pounds in quantity, the value I of the output decreased .from $194,- 421,561 in 1917 to a little over $192, 000,000 in 1918, as the average price of copper decreased from 27.3 cents to about 24.75 cents a pound. Aside from the steady operation of the cop per plants of Arizona, two of the main features which contributed to the larger copper production were the blowing in of the nev copper smelter of the United Verde Exten j sion company at Verde, near Jerome, ! and the continuous operation of the i leaching plant of the Xew Cornelia j at Ajo. Another decided increase re I suited from the International plant .at Miami, which treats concentrate from the Inspiration property. In j Greenlee county the plants of the Shannon, Arizona Copper, and De troit returned to normal outputs j after the strikes of 1917. I The mine production of lead in ! Arizona decreased from 23,463,445 nminds in 1917 to less than 13,000,000 I pounds in 1918. The value of the 'output decreased from $2,018,028 to 1 about $985,000. One of the main reasons for the decrease in lead as i well as in zinc, was the idleness of j the Tennessee mine, in Mohave 1 county. As there were very few ; shipments of zinc ore or lead zinc ore, tiie lead irom residues was con ; sidcrably less. Most of the lead came ! from the Copper Queen and Shat tuck Arizona properties in Cochise . county. ! The output of recoverable zinc de- : creased from 20.S94.860 pounds in : 1917 to about 1.800,0001 pounds in ; 191S. The value decreased from over ,?2.f.00,000 to about $131,000. The j Golconda mine, in the Wallapat dis- i trict, Mohave county, formerly a large producer, was closed, and the I Tennessee mine, which produced ! lead-zinc milling ore, was practical- i ly worked out and sold to the j Schuylkill Mining company, which j owns adjoining ground. Consider- : able zinc shipments came from the ! Duquesne property in Santa Cruz j county, and from the Hillside prop- erty, in Yavapai county. j Dividends from Arizona mining j companies during the first eleven j months of 1918 amounted to $35,003,- ;683. exclusive of those of the Fhelps- i Dodge Corporation, which also op- I crates mines in Mexico r.nd Xew ' Mexico. The total including those of the Phelps Dodge Corp&.-ation was j nearly $45,000,000. The companies ; paying dividends were the Miami. Arizona Commercial, Inspiration ilron Cap, Shattuck, United Eastern, i United Verde, United Verdf Exten- j sion, Arizona Copper, Calumet & 1 Arizona, Consc didated Arizona Smel- i ting, Magna, Old Dominion, Ray ' Consolidated, - Xew Cornelia, and j Phelps Dodge. I , - , YAVAPAI MINING MAN FIGURES IN DEAL. fFrom Friday Dailyl Geo. L. Haggon, who is in the city making investigations of title to a copper group in which he is inter ested, accompanied by Elias L. Vec try, of the Southwestern Minis Syn dicate, stated yesterday that he and his associates had closed an option deal with the above people, the first cash payment of 10 per cent now be ing available in an El Paso bank. The group is situated in the Mazatal mountains, while a spur from the range extends into the southeastern section of this county, where a unit of four claims is under ownership of the sellers. In mentioning a rather unusual in cident in connection with this deal, which is substantiated by Mr. Vee try, it is evident that some section of the property acquired lias a rela tion with the prehistoric period. From near the surface of some of the claims has been recovered native copper moulded into various wares of a primitive age, while the native metal in an undisturbed state exists j in small veins in which chalco-py-J rite is the bae. Probably there has been a total of 230 pounds of native copper wares taaken out. said ir. I lag gen, and as a whole the itidiea tions are that with depth a perman ent sulphide conditions will be en countered, this being the belief of copper geologists. To date there has been - accom plished in prospecting the system about 2.8(0 feet: the deepest shaft being only 75 feet, with a chalco pyritc body of six feet in width ex posed. The visitors liring several arrow heads, made of native copper along with with small pieces ap parently coins of some value, en graved thereon being a hieroglyphic emblem. Mr. Haggon entered that field sev eral years ago and formerly worked in the Bradshaws, his last mine op erations being near' Silver Moun tain. The incoming company has in terests near Silver City, X. M., in Mvxico, and in Cochise county, Arizona. AMATEUR BANDIT BUMPS INTO WRONG MAN. fFrom Friday's Daily.") George Camel, range foreman of W. K. Brown, near Ash Fork, was in the rity Wednesday and stated that Earl Bailey, an alleged all-round bad man, who attempted to hold him up on Christmas Eve, has landed in the Flagstaff jail, having bee.n captured by Gamcl and a posse in a three days' chase. The affair S occurred within a few miles of Ash Fork, just over the boundary line of Yavapai and Coconino, which -.accounts for the prisoner being turned over to the custody of the latter county. Gamel reiterated what had occur red as published in the Journal Miser, and he brands Bailey as a poor hand in playing the bandit game, which was all the more ludic rous as he had the drop on him and made a bum shot in firing his gun. He stated further that jailey did not give him a chance to ihrow up his hands, as he blazed awiy with the evident intent of murdering him. Gamel said further: "I was jogging along on horseback, comi.ig to town for a physician, and as Bailey fired my horse wheeled around on its hind feet, when I whipped out my gun and. fired, the bullet cutting through the hat of the fellow who must have been badly jarred. I continued to fire and Bailey instantly took to 'lis heels, leaving the hat hehiml. The bullet must have creased his head as the hoi" in the hat was low down: I continued to town at a swil't pace and reported the affair, when a posse was organized. We finally caught h;m. and turned him over to Sher iff Dickinson. I believe be is one of the bunch which Iras been robbing in that country, and why he should have selected me out on the road without knowing anything of my movements, I cannot understand. I think he was after bigger game, and did not anticipate receiving such a lively reception. Anyway he is out .if the business, and if he had any pals, they will know where to heav.1 in hereafter.'' INFLUENZA CLAIMS FORMER RESIDENT. fFrom Friday's Taily.) Los Angeles papers of recent date contain 'announcement of the death from pneumonia of Lewis E. Over nnn, which is of local interest. He had married on Tuesday, December 24. and the following days was taken ill, the end coming on Friday night. He visited Prescott from about Jnnc to September of lrsst year, being in the incipient stages of tuberculosis. and had been apparently restored to normal health when he left Prescott. He was aged about 42 years, and was a nephew of former Senator Over man of South Carolina. He served in Cuba, during the Spanish-Ameri can war, where his health became af fected. His remains will be shipped to Iturens, S. C, the family home. RECORDER'S OFFICE MADE SHOWING. fFrom Wednesday's Daily.) County Recorder McSwiggin feels proud cf the showing made in his office for the year which closed last night, the revenue derived from all sources reaching the magnificent sum of over $9,500. December was one of the big months of 191S, the business totalling $1,875. This creditable record also re flects on the economical manner in which public economy is being con sidered, the force employed number ing only four. In addition there was a vast amount of official duties per formed for the county, for which there s jno compensation, and 5n contrast with some years in the past- the office during 1918 was more than self sustaining.
