From Mines and Oil Fields JACKLING PUTS FAITH IN RAY CONSOLIDATED Utah Copper Man Says Arizona Property Will Have Enor mous Production PHOENIX, Aug. 15.—That the mines of the Ray Consolidated Copper com pany will, in less than eighteen months, be producing copper at the rate ot 75,000,000 pounds a year, thereby nearly equaling the production of the famous Calumet and Hecla mine, which for years stood as the largest single pro ducing mine in the world, was the announcement of Daniel C. Jackling, vice president and general manager of the Ray Consolidated Copper company, upon the occasion of his visit to Phoe nix and the Ray properties. All this contingent upon the completion of the gigantic smelter and concentrator now under course of construction at Hay den, upon tho Arizona and Eastern railroad, sixteen miles from Ray, the scene of the present mining operations. And that there Is no doubt that the plant at Hayden will be In full opera tion long before the eighteen months limit set by Mr. Jnekling is'shown by the report of progress upon the con struction of the buildings, the great reservoir and the pumping plant. Al ready the power plant is complete or nearly so, the structural iron work of the smelter Is up, trestles have been completed and to an outsider it would appear that there really was not much more to do except to install the ma chinery and put ' the finishing touches to the buildings. Over 450 men are engaged at present in the work at Hayden and more will be added as they can be worked ad vantageously. ■ The reservoir under construction is designed to have a ca pacity of 4,000,000 gallons, derived from the hills and from the Gila river, which will be tapped by pumps having a capacity of 7000 gallons a minute. The concentrator, the largest build ing in the group being erected, covers a ground area of four and one-half acres and is built of solid steel and concrete. A spur has .been constructed from the main line of the Arizona and Eastern railroad, running three miles or more up the side of a mountain to the scene of the present activity and encountering a three and one-halp ao encountering a 3% per cent grade over practically the entire route. At the mine located at Ray the thou sand or more men now engaged in tunneling are pushing Into the hills at the rate of about three-fourths of a mile each month and are taking out ore that gives promise of being of more than ordinary high grade. In some instances great nuggets of prac tically solid copper have been taken out, according to Mr. Jackling. Superintendent C. M. Scott of the Arizona and Eastern railroad says in this connection that his road is pre paring in every way possible to be ready to give the best of service in the hauling of this ore the sixteen miles between Ray and Hayden. No finer example of railroad construction is to be found in the southwest than that found upon the new spur to Hayden. Over at Bingham canyon, where is located the mine of the Utah Copper company, over which Mr. Jacking ex ercises the same general managership ' as he does over the Ray mine, there are now employed 4000 men. Mr. Jack ling says that this mine today ranks as the greatest single producing mine In the world, having passed the Cal umet and Hecla sometime ago. This mine, he says, is producing 15,000,000 pounds of copper each month, or a total of 180,000,000 pounds a year. Some idea of the enormous extent of these operations may be gained from the statement that the 1909 edition of the Stevens Copper Hand Book gives the production of the Calumet and Hecla at 83,000,000 pounds annually. In comparing the operations at the Utah mine with the work upon the Panama canal, Mr. Jackling said 2,600, --000 yards of earth are being moved each month, one-half of which is solid ore, which is hauled twenty-seven miles to a smelter. In leaving Phoenix in his special pri vate car, The Cyprus, Mr. Jackling proceeded to another holding of his companies, the Chino copper mine, lo cated at Santa Rita, N. M. There has been erected at this place a 3000-ton plant, which ranks among the largest in the United States. It is claimed the Spanish worked this mine as far back as In 1804, taking out great nuggets of copper and packing the ore on mules down to the City of Mexico, where it •was made into coins. It is what is known as straight metallic copper.' There are families at work in the mine today who trace their ancestry straight back to those who worked there in the early years of the eighteenth century. The company is now entered upon an era of development which gives prom ise of the mine soon being operated upon a large scale. It is said that the ore is of as high grade as has been encountered in the United States. Asked why he had selected "Cyprus" as the name for his private car, Mr. Jackling said the name was taken from the island of Cyprus in the Mediterran ean, on which copper was first discov ered by the Phoenicians, over 8000 years ago. * » » METAL MARKETS NEW YORK, Aug. 15—Standard cop per, quiet; spot, August, September, October and November, $12.20012.60. j London weak; spot, £55 15s; futures, £56 10s.

The decrease in the flow of the well has been steady, and there la now no difficulty in caring for tin- output. Officials of the fluid department of the [Talon «ay then is no basis for a report that the Sag-o well, which wai brought in near the gusher, gives promi.se of becoming as groat a pm ducer as was the latter when at the height of i's production. The Shl?<' well shot oil 200 feet above the derrick for two hours, and then sanded up. Pockets of gas have been found in other wells in the locality.

MIDWAY NORTHERN MAKES FAVORABLE FIELD REPORT Local Company with Productive Well Expects to Pay Divi dends in Short Time A letter addressed to stockholders by the- Midway Northern Oil company signed hy Secretary Sam Warm bath, shows that company Is making pro gress and will probably soon be on a dividend paying basis. Tho letter in part reads: "While you can appreclaate it will take a little time to get matters on the Midway Northern property in such shape that a continuous daily produc tion will bo maintained, we know you are interested in hearing from time to time of progress accomplished. "Two 1000-barrel steel tanks have been erected near the 30,000-barrel sump (in Which we already have 10,000 barrels of oil awaiting disposition); a line for pumping oil through the pipe lines has been installed and the line arranged for, so it will be a matter of but a few days to lay samo and start regular daily deliveries. It la taking considerable time to get well No. 1 thoroughly cleaned out, due to the fact that every few hours the well breaks loose and flows over the top nf the casing, frequently clear over the top of the derrick, which makes it difficult for our crew to install the 6-inch 'agitating string' inside the S-inch casing. In order to prevent any possible danger of fire it became nec essary to move the boiler several hun dred feet away from the derrick, on account of gas accompanying the oil. "We wish to report that two large oil marketing companies are bidding us nt present for our entire production and we anticipate the closing of this contract as soon as the property is in shape to start steady production, which will likely be within the next week or ten days. Two oil companies which have Just started drilling op erations near us on the east are at present buying a small quantity of oil from us at 60 cents a barrel. "We wish to say that all matters pertaining to the success of this com pany are progressing favorably. "Preparations for drilling well No. 2 are now under way and work there on will be reported soon." GREENE-CANANEA REDUCES PRODUCTION 15 PER CENT TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 15.—The July production of the Greene-Cananea Cop per company is expected to be about the same as for the past few months, or slightly in excess of 4,000,000 pounds. The output will soon show a falling off of about 15 per cent, as the company has decided to curtail to that extent, which policy goes into effect at once. There are now being operated six furnaces at the Greene plant, and I while none of them is likely to be | entirely closed down they will not be run to capacity. There has been a slight improve ment in the copper contents of the ore, which is now running about fifty i pounds to the ton, against forty-eight j pounds last year. This improvement will offset to a considerable extent the increased costs resulting from the lessened production. The Investments which the Greene company recently made In the Indlana- Sonora Copper company is proving a judicious one, as the heavy silver val ues contained In the Indiana-Sonora ores are a material factor in reducing the copper costs of the Greene-Cananea company. MIDWAY OIL OPERATORS TO CONSTRUCT PIPELINE J. M. McLeod and associates of Los Ang-eles have become interested in the Esperanza Consolidated Oil company, which will build a pipeline between the Midway field and the Santa Bar bara channel, employ a fleet of tank steamers and -by furnishing these ex tensive additional transportation fa cilities increase the market for Cali fornia oil. The McLeod interests and those of Capt. John Barneson and associates, San Francisco, in the interior oil fields have been combined, the merger Including 1300 acres in the Midway field and 2800 acres in the Coalinga ' country. The properties have been acquired by the Esperanza company, which is cap italized at $7,000,000. of which $2,000,000 has been subscribed. Bonds will be issued, a refinery built and a fleet of oil steamers secured. The pipeline will be a common car rier, and will be of great benefit to Midway field producers, it is declared. A preliminary survey for as direct a route for the pipeline as It will be possible to select will be begun In a short time. It is declared'the company has ex tensive financial resources, and will be made an important factor in the oil business of the state. STRONG GAS PRESSURE COALINGA, Aug. 15.—The Coalinga Royal is down 2050 feet in eight-inch casing, with a strong gas pressure still showing. This morning the derrick buckled, necessitating a small job for the rig builder. Drilling will be re sumed as soon as the derrick is re paired, The water was shut off at 1300 feet, and since then no water has been encountered. Well No. 4 of the California Oil and Gas company, which has been produc ing from a 2450-foot hole, is being re drilled. Operations wen- commenci d yesterday, and the 6',-i-ineh casing will be carried down to the second sand. The-10-inch casing of the Six Acres Oil company, which has been stuck in the- hole since last Sunday evening, was loosened today and the water will be . emented off at 2055 feet. BABOQUIVARIS ACTIVE TUCSON, Aug. 15.—Mining is espe cially active in the Baboquivaris at present, according to F. A. Kiutt. :. B fine placer bed has been found only twelve feet below the surface. This bed Is believed to extend to the Qui tojoa region and then on to the Altar district in Mexico. The Papago Indi ans, according to Mr. Kiutt, discov ered the- bed without really knowing what they were scraping for. The dis covery is causing great interest in the district and claims are being taken. In addition to tlit' placer work there is considerable shaft work going mi. 'I'll.- most extensive work along this line is being- done b" B. C. Brichta Of this city, and it is the opinion of Mr. Kiutt that Mr. Brichta's prospects are excellent. MISS AND MATRON STRANGELY VANISH Two Pretty Women Leave Their Homes -and Police Are Asked to Find Them GIRL LEAVES A NOTE BEHIND Believed That Man Coaxed 18- Year-Old Girl to Desert Her Relatives Police detectives are searching for two missing women, both pretty blondes, one a wffe and the other a miss of 18. The wife, Mrs. Floyd E. Jones of 4317 South Olive street, has been missing for three months. Her husband, who sought the aid of the detectives yesterday, is unable to ex plain why she left home. Miss Lisle Miller, a pretty blonde of : 18, has been missing from the home of I her sister, Mrs. Silvia Hush, 1516 East ' Fifty-third street, since July 20, and the j police detectives were appealed to yes terday to aid in locating the young woman. It is thought that she is in San Francisco, as before leaving she 1 had often expressed the wish to go to that city, and it was tho only place in i the west with which she was at all \ acquainted. Miss Miller was left at home to take care of her little nephew July 20, while the boy's mother was up town shop pins. When the mother returned she ! found the house deserted and a note awaiting her. This note said: "1 am going away with a man I met last evening. The boy is at a neigh bors." It was signed Lisle. Miss Miller came to Los Angeles in May from Michigan to live with her widowed sister, Mrs. Bush. She was apparently happy here and had neyer complained or seemed to desire any ! thing- except to go to San Francisco. I She is a pretty girl of the blonde type | and wore handsome clothes. When she I went away she was attired in a dark I suit of expensive material and wore a large black picture hat. It is believed that she became ac quainted with some man who, discov ering her longing to go to San Fran cisco, persuaded her against her better judgment to accompany him. The de tective bureau in San Francisco will be notified and a watch kept for the young woman. Mrs. Jones Is described as 20 years of age, of medium height and pretty. She wears glasses. Jones believes out siders persuaded his wife to leave home and that she is in hiding in Los An geles. CENTURION IN DRAGOON ENTERS RICH ORE BODY TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 15. —According to reports received here this week from I Dragoon, the Centurion Mining com : pany has encountered a rich body of ore. J. P. Richardson, writing about the new strike, says: "We have struck it rich on the 440 --foot level of our shaft. This strike is | the best we have ever encountered in I the Centurion. It will make the Cen- I turlon famous. The ore and Iron comes in tHe hanging wall with almost a vertical trend. After fifteen feet more of sinking the fifth station will be cut out and drifting by the ore both ways from the station will be com menced. Shipment of ore will begin during the next sixty days."

MERRY DEL VAL WILL MEET WITH DIPLOMATS Matters Quiet in Spanish Contro versy—Pope Confident of Church's Success ROME, Aug. IB.—There are no de velopments today in the controversy between the Vatican and the Spanish government. On account of religious festivities all work at the Vatican was suspended and the pope gave no au diences. Cardinal Merry del Val, the papal secretary of state, remained through out the day at his summer residence on Monte Mario, but he was In com munication with the pope for a brief period by the telephone this afternoon. He said that he did not expect to come to Rome until Friday morning, when he will receive the diplomatic representatives. The pope again expressed confidence in the ultimate success of the church in the tight. VATICAN DENIES CAUSING DELAY OF DEMONSTRATION Holy See Maintains Wholly Ex- traneous Attitude ROME, Aug. 15.—Owing to a misun derstanding It was stated at the time of the abandonment of the clerical demonstration at San Sebastian, Au gust 7, that thu Vatican had instructed the Roman Catholics of Spain to pre vent the manifestations. The Vatican now wishes it clearly known that this statement* was incorrect. The Holy See maintained a wholly extraneous attitude on the subject, taking no steps regarding the movement and do ing nothing either to promote or pre vent It. The Vatican Issued today an official denial of the report that Mon signor Benlgnl, under secretary of state at the Vatican, had left for Spain to meet a representative of the gov ernment for confidential communica tions about a settlement of the con troversy. The statement was first printed on Saturday by the Giornale d' Italia mentioning without names the departure of the monsignor attached to the department of the papal secretary. The clerical organ Corriere d' Italia promptly published a note denying the story, whereupon the Giornale d 1 Italia reiterated the statement, giving the name of Monsignor Benigni as the of ficial concerned. BLAME MERRY DEL VAL FOR ACTS OF VATICAN MADRID, Aug. 15.—A semi-official note issued today attributes to Cardi nal Merry del Val, the papal secretary of state, sole responsibility for the acts of the Vatican in the controversy with Spain. The note says that the state ments issued by the cardinal for the purpose, according to the note, of in fluencing the press of the world, will make no impression on the Spanish government. "The congregation of extraordinary ecclesiastical affairs," the inspired note auys, "never was consulted during the negotiations between Spain and the Vatican, which have been .going on for months. Premier Canalejas knows that every decision In the present con troversy was taken solely by Cardinal Merry del Val." BEGIN COURT MARTIAL OF RETIRED ARMY OFFICER KKATTLE, Aug. 15.—Captain Leroy S. Upton began the arguments for the defense today In the trial by court martial of Colonel George P. Cooke, U. K. A., retired, on charges of neglect of duty and misconduct in connection with the disappearance of $15,000 from the paymaster's safe at Fort Gibbon, Alaska, while Col. Cooke was com mandant there. Captain Upton urged that even if Colonel Cooke had commit ted the acts of which he was charged In 1 could not be held accountable, as he was mentally and physically unfit ted for the post assigned to him by the government.
