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.

LAKEVIEW OUTPUT DECREASES
The amount of water in the output
of the Lakevlew oil gusher, near Marl
oopa, has Increased to v per cent of
the entire production, which is now
20,000 to 21,000 barrels daily, according
to official reports received tit the of
fices of the Union Oil company.
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.

John McGroarty, the famous poet of

I saw a vale that day as fair a? any In
all the Land of the Heart's Desire. I
was ashamed to think that I had let
the years go by and had wandered far
in quest of beauty, while all the time
Sunlund's Monte Vista had been there
in Its ravishing loveliness Just beyond
the threshold of my door."
