NEWS OF THE MINES AND OIL FIELDS
NEW PORPHYRY STRIKE
Dike in Nevada District Outcrops
Ten Feet and Shows the
Length of Claim
I.AS VEGAS, Nev.. Deo. 20.—A recent
discovery of a vein of porphyry heav
ily mineralised and carrying pay values
from tin! surface is attracting general
attention in the Eldorado district. The
vein or outcrop la the typical Kldorado
porphyry, oxidized slightly, and out
crops ten to fifteen feet high for 1200
reel The ledge hns now been crosscut |
ami shows a remarkably even distri
bution of mineral throughout. The ore
.shows native silver, chloride of silver
and pome bromide, with hornsilwr and j
■ pecks of galena, which In Eldorado
commonly denotes good gold values.
To experienced mining men here tii"
new discovery, except for the alienee
of a white spar, brings to mind the
bonanza strikes of early days, particu
larly that of the Wall street, which ore
it resemble*, and in a measure realizes
what mining men have sometimes con
tended, that the mother lode of tho dis
trict has yet to be found.
Ore is now being broken on the striKo
for ■ considerable distance along the
surface, and from fifteen to eighteen
tons taken out dally by the lucky
owners. Jack Martin, Matt McCarthy
and John Truax, who have refused a
good cash price for the property.
The discovery is about two miles
southeast of Nelson, between the Kagle
wash and January wash and on a lino
between tho Rich Hill and Morning Star
mines, the latter being, according to
the United States geological survey, on
the main lode of the district.
The, Capital mine is drifting on the
400-levcl and opening ii big ore body.
Tho Bergman mill and cyanide plant
in producing a good yield of bullion
and Is In continuous operation.
It in reported the Duncan property
in this district has been sold for a
cash figure of J400,000 to New York
capitalists, who will commence opera
tions the first of the year.
The Black Hawk Mining company
has resumed mining operations at the
Hand shaft. Two machine drills and
two shifts are employed. Drifting on
the 300 iii a rich body of ore will bo
pushed ahead vigorously.
The Ptedbar-Ax company has opened
a fine body of ore In doing assessment
work in a ten-foot hole. A small •
stringer wan being followed down
ward, which has now opened out to the I
full size of the shaft. The company
has struck a flow of water at the I
mouth of Copper canyon which it is
thought will bo sufficient to supply
their new 20-stamp mill to be erected
in Eagle wash, and also supply mines
along the. route of the pipe line, which
will be equipped with necessary hy
drants for tho purpose.

OIL WAR RAGES
While the ordinary person hear* lit
tle of the strilo, the world is just now
In tho throes of a great war. Jt is v
war of ehe oil interests of Europe,
America and Asia. TUe Financial News
of I,onUon thus describes it:
"Without exaggeration it may no
stated that the silent war now being
waged In tho oil industry is tho biggest
oil war that has ever broken out. It is
the biggest not only In respect to tho
amount of capital engaged in it, but
on account of the enormous area pov
ered by the operators. The Standard
oil company of America is engaged In
declaring commercial warfare in Great
Britain, France, Germany, lioumania,
Austria, Italy and Mexico, and in most
of the countries mentioned it comes
Into direct opposition with the Royal
Dutch-Shell combine. It may Pc added,
also that In most countries the oppon
ents of the Standard Oil company and
the ifoyal Dutch-Shell people are sup-
Dorted by the government. Broadly, it
may be stated that there is room foi
fie Standard Oil company and the
Royal Dutch-Shell combine in all the
Kuropean countries mentioned. But
tho Hoyal Dutch-Shell people are de
termined to strengthen thoir hold on
Kuropean trade, and, naurally, tho
Standard Oil company Is determined to
llcht every inch of the ground for the
Present. Presumably the only two
bases of agreement between the two
powers will be the parceling up of
Burope Into sections, in which one 01
the other organization will trade prac
tically exclusively, or a general agree
ment as to prices. On these premises
it may reasonably be questioned wheth
er ihe end of the fight is soon or near,
