MINING AND OIL
UNION FAVORED
J. F. Lucey. Head of Supply Firm,
Gives Interview on Join
ing Congress
BE WING OF NATIONAL BODY
Representatives in Washington to
Look After Interests of
Both Operators
.1. F. Lucey, head of the oil supply '
house of this city of the .same name,
has among others been intervi
on the part of the American Mining
congress representatives with a view
curing opinions of oil men con
cerning the proposed organization of
the oil men as a win.!.' of the mining
find coal operators' national body. So
far all interviews secured are entire
ly in favor of the proposed union.
Mr. Lucey's interview as given out
by the American Mining congress of
ffcers is as follows:
WHAT L.TJCEY SATS
"T notice that many papers have
printed considerable matter on the
proposed merging of the oil men of j
California with the American Mining I
congress by the creation of an oil
branch or wing of that congress and
I want to say that I approve it fully.
To my mind this is the only logical
thing the oil men of California can
da, if they really want a militant or
ganizatiop to represent them in Wash
ington during the sessions of congress.
"As n separate organization they
would not be strong numerically and
the burden of keeping a lobbying com
mittee in Washington to watch Uieir
interests would be too heavy a burden
on the oil men of the state. By coming
into the American Mining congress In
their full numbers, all they would
have to do thereafter would be to pay
their annual dues in that organization
and through that body initiate and
work for the protective legislation that
the oil interests require find must
have.
TIFE PICKETT BILL
"The Pickett bill was almost
through congress before the oil men
became sufficiently aroused to hurry a
delegation to Washington to gain a
hearing. This is the very best proof,
in my opinion, why they should be j
constantly represented in Washington
by a lobby that is regularly maintained
there to,watch legislation.
"The American Mining congress has
proven that it can secure beneficial
legislation by securing the pa.ssage of
a bureau of mines bill at the current
session and the law creating this bu
reau would only have to be amended
slightly at the next session of con
gress to be made to extend to and In
clude tlie oil industries, thus giving
them actual federal representation
through a. United States official,
"I understand that the effort will be
made to make the head of this bureau
a cabinet officer, in which case the oil
men would benefit just that much
more.
"I believe, therefore, it fs bettor to
ask for this help and co-operation
through the same organization, of
which both the mining- and oil men
are members, and do it at the same
sitting of the American Mining- con
press, -when oil men can be present
and take a pnrt in the debates and
discussions, than to attempt to do it
by ft detached organization, trying- to
-work throiißh a small and far less In
fluential committee.
"It is my understanding that a sc
ries of meeting's will be held at differ
ent points in the San Joaquin valley
during next month, which will be at
tended by the oil men of these dis
trict?, and if I can postsbly be a mem-
Tier of the party that goes from I^os
Angeles to attend these meetings i
shall certtalnly be there to ppeak in fa
vor of the idea, as I think this is really
more or an opportunity for the oil men
than for the mining- men. They have
their organizations: we have none, and
if wo can «o in with them and share
in their destinies and benefits, then
we should be eager to do so."

LOS ANGELES ftERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 16, I.HO.
CONSOLIDATION MINES
PICK RICH PROPERTIES
Los Angeles Men Perfect Final
Plans for Developing 2800
Acres Near Bouse
Following the success of the Clara
Consolidated Mines company of Swan
sea, Yuma county, Ariz., ■which has re
cently blown in its smelter, conies an
other winner in the form of the Con
solidation Copper Mines, backed by
Thomas ,T. Carrigan and associates of
Los Angeles, which have taken over
about a dozen individual properties
and assembled them under one owner
ship and management. Held in weak
hands before acquired by the Consoli
dation, these properties could not be
profitably developed, although known
for years to bo of great value.
In an announcement folder issued
yesterday by E. F. Hutton & Co., Los
Angeles, New York and elsewhere, the
qualities and possibilities of the proper
ties acquired by the Consolidation are |
described. A tact that was not over
looked Is that Arizona has always pro
duced copper at lower cost than any
other locality, because of the peculiar
character or the ores and the ease with
which they are mined and treated.
The total holdings of the company
amount to 140 claims, or 2SOO acres.
The best known mine in the Cienega,
says the announcement, is the Clara
Consolidated, which has just completed
a 750-ton smelter, with all attendant
equipment. Associated with^Mr. carrl
gan in effecting the assemblage of the
Consolidation Mines -was E. S. Osborne,
a well known Arizonan, one of the own
ers of several groups which made up
this consolidation. When these two
men threw their means and energy into
this region it was as inaccessible as
the heart of Central Africa. Long and
weary hauls over waterless deserts,
hazardous voyages down torrential and
treacherous streams, were the only
means of communication.
RAILROAD SHORTENS ROUTE
Until May 15, 1910, these properties
could be reached only by the most cir
cuitous routes. From Los Angeles it
was necessary to go either by way of
the Southern Pacific to Phoenix, thence
to Wlckenburg, or to go by the Santa
Fo to Ash Fork, thence south to Wick
enburg, thence over the Arizona & Cali
fornia to Bouse. But with the comple
tion of the Santa Fe's Parker cut off
it is possible to leave Los Angeles at 8
o'clock in the evening and be at head
quarters camp of the Consolidation
Mines for breakfast the next morning.
This has materially reduced the cost of
handling machinery and supplies on the
company's ground.
The interests affiliated with the Clara
Consolidated have built a thoroughly
equipped railroad from Bouse to that
property, bringing rail transportation
within thre miles of the property of the
Consolidation Copper Mines. As the
Parker cut off will soon become the
main trunk .of the Santa Fe for its
southwestern business, it will bring the
great mineral section, the best farming
land and the largest towns within easy
distance of their natural markets.
Approximately $150,000 has been spent
by the present owners of the Consolida
tion Mines and the former owners in
development of the several properties
merged. This development consists
chiefly of prospect shafts, the deepest
of which is 165 feet. The most spec
tacular development is on the Hotten
tot group, where shipping ore of high
grade has been taken out.
The present company is devoting its
greatest energy to work on the Revenue
group, located about the center of the
entire property, where excellent results
are being obtained. The Revenue group
is equipped with power hoist, good
camp, boarding house, tool house, bunk
house and corrals.^
CHANCE IN CONTRACTS
REACTS ON COALINGA
COALINGA, June 15.—Coalinga is
passing through the conditions ex
pi i ted when the change of contract
was made from the Associated to the
Producers. The future, with the old
contracts and its tendency to down the
price of oil, was not encouraging. The
change had to come to the position of
marketing our own oil, but it had with
it the influence of low priced contracts
held by the sales agents, the Union Oil
company, that would affect the net
price to be received by the producer,
with a low price for the early oil de-
Hverles. . s-
The shaping of so large a business,
even in the hands of competent men,
takes time to get all the machinery and
all the avenues of trade in line of per
fect harmony. The situation os fast
improving, 1 lie old contracts are run
ning out, and the new contracts at a
better price are beginning to take oil.
The broadening of the market under
the generalship of L. P. St. Clalr and
his associates has reached the far north,
is seeking the trade of the great mining
districts of Arizona and New Mexico,
has crossed the Isthmus of Panama to
invade the Atlantic with a superior
fuel for his greyhound liners.
The Independent Producers today
controls about 90 per cent of the inde
pendent oil in California, which means
that with the growing market and de
mand will come better prices to the
producers. There are many evidences
of increased demand for fuel oil.
Take the re] orti I action of the Amer
ican Petroleum and the American Oil
flelds, aftei a contra I for their oil for
three j ears al 30 ■ nts a 1 arrel had
been made, when the present market
admitted of only 42 ents to the Inde
pendent, they were later quoted as hav
ing made an offer of $50,000 to be re
leased from this very favorable con-
I i id
But one solution for their notion, tlie
other marketing- concerns have in
creased their territory and need oil
to complete, contracts n
The Standard, with a superior system,
worldwide, has been a< tlve In the
market, is reaching for future delivery
of the refined oil. The Southern Pacific
has demonstrated the superiority of
liquid fuel over coal in the great freight
engines now being used over t!i" h
grades, which are Impossible with coai
The Associated OH has reached be
yond the confines of this great si ite
for a market, and will need .rude oil t<>
fill orders for fuel. With these four
marketing concerns in the field seeking
new customers, with trained men in
every avenue of their business, menus
a broadening of the industry great'
than the layman can understand. Tli"
year 1910 will be a history making
pi rind in this great industry, with the
elements of chance greatly modified,
drawn down to a. .solid basis, with the
future and its great possibilities
brighter than In any year of the oil
business on this cous'
JUST'WHATS WHAT'
IN VOTING CONTEST
Some of the Leads Have Been
Stationary for Whole
Month
VOTES HAVE BEEN DROPPING
So Real Hustlers Should Take the
Tip and Start Some
thing %
In spite of the contest man's repeated
warnings, to present leaders that their
totals are far from safe, there seems
to bo no signs of the needed awaken
ing. To make, present conditions abso
lutely plain, the contest man shows to
day just how long various leads have
remained stationary. Ho asks all live
candidates to read what follows and
then decide definitely whether or not
this contest offers opportunities to real,
wide-awake, up-and-doing people.
. NO HOLDING BACK
In looking over the list of stationary
leads, remember that many vote reduc
tions have occurred since these leads
have shown any Increase. This does
away once for all with the suggestion
that present leaders may be "holding
back." To say that this has been done
would be to underrate the intelligence
of present leaders, because there would
be nothing to gain in "holding back"
for such a period and with vote re
ductions occurringl every two weeks
the loss in votes would be much greater
than any benefits which could have
been derived, were there any to be
derived.
NO ADVANCE FOR MONTH
The total leading for the $266 double
trip to Alaska is 122,559 and has been
122,559 for over a month; the total lead
ing for the $264 double trip to Alaska
has been 73,600 for a month, and the
same thing applies to the total of 65,
--215, which leads for the $250 CJrapho
nolao. The total leading for the $220
double trip to Mexico City is and has
been 31,679 for nearly a month. The
total 169,893 leading for the $260 double
trip to Honolulu has not shown an in
crease for nearly three weeks.
WHAT LEADS KEI'KESENT
Now, what does each of these totals
represent under the present .vote
schedule? The total of 122,559 repre
sents a little less than three yearly
clubs and this, remember, is leading,
for the $266 double Alaskan trip. The
total of 73,660 leading for the $264
double Alaskan trip represents less
than throe clubs. The total of 62,215
leading for the $250 Qraphonola repre
sents less than three clubs, as does the
total fo 69.159 leading for the $260 double
trip to Honolulu. The total of 31,679
which leads for the $220 double trip to
Mexico City represents slightly more
than one club.
The contest man places these things
before every reader In fairness to all
concerned. Present leaders must real
ize that their totals are far from be
ing safe, and the sooner they realize it
the better it will be for them. On the
other hand, it is only fair that good,
live people who have not become prom
inently identified with this contest to
date are told these things that they
may act upon the Information. Re
member, The Herald has no favorites
and can have no favorites. The prizes
are awaiting to be distributed just as
the conditions of the contest say they
shall be divided, and. In a word, prizes
are goingl to be awarded to candidates
who get votes.
If candidates who now occupy lead-
Ing positions continue to remain dor
mant, the only natural result can be
renewed activity among new entrants.
The inactivity of those who now lead
Is the greatest argument which can be
presented to candidates or non-candi
dates who have not inaugurated cam
paigns, for their doing so immediately,
and the contest man will be frank to
say that he Is going to put the case
fairly and squarely before every live
man, woman and child Interested in
this contest. It is up to the leaders
i now to hold or lose their leads.
BIG SALE OF SEATS FOR
STATE SOCIETIES' BANQUET
Younger Organizations Promise
Full Representation
The headquarters of the Federation of
State Societies was rushed all day yes
terday with applicants for tickets to
the federation banquet at Hamburger's
tomorrow night, and purchasers kepi
one clerk busy at each of the follow
ing places: The All Night and Day
bank. Security Savings bank, Fowler
Bros.' bookstore, 543 South Broadway,
ami Hamburger's. Last night an espe
cially large sale of tickets was made
at the All Night and Day bank.
The sale of tickets will close to
night. By special arrangement with
Hamburger's cafe this late hour of
closing the placing of the tickets has
been j>nn Ided for. The banquet man
agers were anxious that everyone who
Wished t" attend the mammoth spread
sis.mli 1 have the opportunity, and an ex
tension of time was secured.
There is much rivalry between the
state organizations with regard to the
number of representatives that will at
tend the banquet. Each society will
have a special table and each Is
anxious that Its table be large and that
at it there be no empty seats. Strange
i , ,>. some of the younger organiza
tions are forging ahead of the old ones
in the race. The Alaska society,
formed only recently, is unusually en
thusiastic.

work in pottery and applied design,
A remarkable exhibit is thai Of each
of these three departments. Pottery
has been made in the school for somo
time, and applied design has been
practiced for several years; conse
,,,.. nttj something is to be expected
from the students in these craft*. The
expectations are well met, an.l |he ex
hibit compares favorably with the ex
hibits of lnrgvr and older institutions.
On the other hand, the trades school,
with branches of dressmaking for the
girls and carpentry for the boys, is
only five months old, but the Bhowing
made is surprising in its extensivoness
and quality.
LANE'S IDBAS
The idea of a trades school was con
ceived by Robert H. Lane, principal of
the Macy street school. That It was a
good thought is amply proved by the
enthusiasm -with which the children
took to tho work.
Students of the trades school, who
number now about twenty, devote their
mornings to regular grammar school
study. The afternoons are spent In
the manual pursuits, the boys study
ing carpentry undor Arthur I- Flick
and the sirls studying dressmaking un
der Geraldine Pary.
The carpenter shop, which is in full
operation everj afternoon, is a busy
place. There are no slupprards among
the boys enrolled. .11 are thorough
ly in earnest in their ambition to per
fect themselves in the trade. The
course consists of joint making, table
making truss and bridge work, con
struction of ventilators, brackets, min
iature roof framing and window
frames. Cabinet work is done by the
more advanced students. All of the
boys draw their nun details and work
direct from them. Each boy in the
class has made a set of five architec
tural drawings since the school opened.
DRESSMAKING SCHOOL
The work in the dressmaking school
is practical. At the beginning of the
course wash dresses were made for
small girls. Since that time larger
wash dresses, party dresses and un
derclothes have been made by the
students. The girls fit the dresses on
each other. About ten sewing ma
chines are in use in the department.
As much interest is manifested here
as is seen in the boys' shop.
Principal Lane expects to extend the
: ope of the work next year. For the
joys courses in plumbing and elec
trical wiring will be inaugurated. A
number, of other innovations will be
made.
The work In applied design and pot
tery is under the direction of, Miss
West, who has been at the Macy street
school for three years. The exhibit
embraces the successful efforts of
students from the fifth grade up. Sofa
cover designs, table mats, bags, cross
stitch work, toy landscapes and many
clever pieces of pottery are included in
the exhibit.
The exhibits will be open again to
day and tomorrow.
JURY DETERMINING HARDY
MURDER CASE LOCKED UP
Following two days' argument in the
Hal. E. Hardy murder trial in Judge
Willis' court, the case was given to the
Jury yesterday afternoon shortly after
5 o'clock. At 10 o'clock there was every
Indication that the jury would be out
for a long period in deciding the case,
and the members were locked up for
the night.
The trial of Hardy, who is charged
with murdering William Moore, a lunch
stand proprietor, last fall, by shooting
him following his refusal to serve Har
dy with a tamale, has engaged the at
tention of the criminal court for more
than a week. The prosecution intro
duced testimony In an effort to prove
murder with malice aforethought, whiis
the defense claimed Hardy was tem
porarily insane from the continued use
of liquor when he dirt the sh«oting.
The argument* in the case lasted two
full days, and great interest was mani
fested in the trial.
