NEWS OF THE MINES AND OIL FIELDS
TWO NEW CONCERNS TO
OPERATE IN SANTA CRUZ
Americans Prepare for Develop
ment of Promising Claims;
Other West Coast News
NOGALKS, Doc, 26.—Last week two
new companies organised In this city
in operate mining proparty in Santa j
'in/, county a short distance from,
Nogales. The names of the Incorpor- ■
.iimns are "Gold Hill Mining and De
velopment company" and "Crescent
Copper company." The Incorporators
air J. A. Chapman of Elk City, Kas.,
ami A. 11. Parker of Nogales. Ariz, i
Exploration and development work
will at nee be commenced on the prop
erties of both companies, the- work be
ing In charge of Mr. Parkor, who will
ho assisted by Mr. iiobi.it nankin.
Messrs, A. ]/. I'e«:k and Dr. A. A.
Doherty of this city are largely Inter
ested with Messrs. Chapman and Par
ker, who an- well pleased with tlie
prospects of making paying mines out
oi their newly acquired prospects.
In future all crude oil to bo used by
tho Cananea Consolidated Copper com
pany us fuel will enter Mexico at thin
port of entry instead of at Naco, where
it has been crossed in the pa.st. From
Nogales It will be sent to the great |
copper camp over the Nogalos Cananea
branch of tho Soutkcni Pacific. The .
many consignments ™£ oil, between 10U
and I^s carloads a month, will be re- 1
ceived at this port and crossed by C. ,
l<\ Holler &. Co., Nogales customs
brokers, who have already received
many bills of lading lor oil which la
shipped from California, points to No- j
Kales, Ariz., from Where it is sent for
ward to tho big copper camp at Can
anoa.
Two carloads of supplies have arrived
from California for the West. Coast
Mexican oil company, and Superin
tendent H. B. Stevens will soon have
it out in the company's field, where
tho first derrick will be erected prepar
atory to commencing to bore for oil. *
The caslns and other supplies ordered
from the east will arrive iii a couple
of weeks. Experienced oil men will be
in charge .of tho operations and those
interested will Impatiently await re
sults, which if successful mean much ,
for Nogales.
Robert Rankin, manager of tho st.
Louis copper company's properties a
short distance from Nogalea, in this
county, lma made an Important strike
of hlfc'.i-grade copper-silver ore, hand
■OEM specimens of which can be Been
at the Border Vldetto office. Mr. Kan- j
kin says the property is showing up
One and believes will become a paying
producer. Bob is an experienced miner.
GINNITY BLACK BUTTE
CROSSCUTS NEW LEDGE
QOLDFIBLD, Ncv., Dec. 26.— The
crosscut on the Ginnlty lease on the
:inu level of the main shaft of the Black
Butte lias encountered the ledKR for
which it was driven and encouraging
values have been opened. It Is not pay
ore yet, but systematic development
will probably bring much better re
sults.
Negotiations have Hbnut been con
cluded between the Relmont and the
Black Butte companies for permission
for the Belmont to use one of the Black
Butts shufts. located near tho dividing
line of. the two properties. It is under
stood ' that the Belmont company is
preparing for extensive work on that
portion of tho property where it is re
ported that good ore Is known to exist.
The Ooldfleld Belmont is controlled
by the Tonopah Belmont people, which
assures that liberal funds can be pro
vided for development whenever de
sired. Should the Uelmont company
Ijeßin active work, it will doubtless re
sult In opening- a new producing prop
osition in the Diamondfleld section.

CHARIOT MINE NEAR
JULIAN WILL RESUME
SAN DIEGO, Doc. 26.—George and
Clarence King have made arrange
ments whereby they will be able about
the first of the year to reopen the
Chariot mine south of Julian. It is
their intention to place about a dozen
men at work before tho first month of
tho now year is many days old. Their
initial efforts will bo directed to sink
ing: a new shaft upon the old workings
have been reached. Then the levels
will bo cleaned and the taking out of
ore begun. It is said the King boys
have the backing of sufficient San
Francisco capital to permit of their
reopening this old mine.
It has been thirty-three years since
the Chariot has been worked. In its
time it was considered the greatest
mlno in the state, and its stock was
daily listed upon the Pan Francisco
mining exchange. Hundreds of thou
sands of dollars have been taken out
of tho workings, Which in these thirty
three years have either been badly
caved or lilted with water.
APPROVES LEASING SYSTEM
That the same leasing; system recom
mended )>y President Taft In connec
tion ■with suggestions for coal and
phosphate land legislation should bo
made to apply to oil and gas acreage
is tho belief o£ some of the men con
nected with tho petroleum industry of
California.
In ..is recent message to congress
tho president suggested that coal and
phosphate lands should be leased under
a competitive system of bids and tho
life of the lease should be for a period
not to exceed fifty years
"The government should -collect .a
minimum rental and royalties," lie rec
ommended, "and the payment of these
should be readjusted every ten or
twelve years.
"The maximum amount of land to be
leased to any one. person should bo lini.
Her to 2500 acres of surface."
The president's recommendation for
oil and gas lands was that such prop
erty should be licensed for two years
lor prospecting.
S. C. Graham, president of the Oil
Conservation association, has expressed
himself us favoring the same system
for oil and gas land that has been rec
ommended for coal and phosphate
property.

MANAGEMENT GIVES NO
CAUSE FOR SHUTTING
DOWN ON DENN SHAFT
BIBBBE, Ariz., Dec. 26.— The pumps,
arc all out of the Derm shaft and
steam is kept in but one boiler which
is used to run the hoist In bringing
material out ot tho shaft. General
Manager Byron Pattison says ho re
ceived no furl her word from the cast
as to the reason of the Shutdown.
The local stockholders and directors
want to keep the pumps working and
are all In favor of unwateting the
mine as soon as possible. The opposi
tion to this plan comes from th» oast-
I crn Interests beaded by the Chlsholm I
interest. Tin: local directors are ISyroti
I PuttlHon, Morris Derm, J. M. O'Con
ni II and L, <'. Shattuck.. Martin Pat
tisou of Duluth, father of (general Man
agei Byron Pattison, Is with the local ,
directors in the desire to continue tho
work at the mine. It i.s very likely
that after J.. C. Shattuck arrives I'mm
the east the local directors will hold a
meeting, as they have control of the
i board and some action may bo taken.
Shattuck left Duluth Thursday and;
was In Chicago Friday and from there
will come to Blsbec.
MEXICAN DISTURBANCES
RETARD DEVELOPMENT
TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 26.—The officers
of the Rio Plata Mining company have
received Information to the effect that
tho insurrection in Mexlxco has Inter
fered with the operation of the mine,
and v. itii the shipping of its product.
The state of Chihuahua, in the western
part of which til.? mine Is situated, was
for a while the center of disturbances,
and the difficulties of mining wi re fur
ther complicated by the fact that one
of the subordinate officials of the com
pany quit work to join the revolution
aries.
Though it. is eighty-five miles from
the terminus of the Kansas city, Mex
ico and Orient Railway (the "Stllwell
Line"), the milling company has to de-.
pend upon that road to ship its silver
most of the way to the market. While!
the insurrection was In progress here
the railway was unable to move the!
freight offered. The si <no of war has
:iiiiii.| now, and it is understood that,
trains are again moving regularly.
The production of tho Rio Plata in
November amounted to 69,372 ounces of
Silver, from L 2 to IE per cent less than
that for the previous month.
CRUDE CONSUMPTION ON
STEAM ROADS INCREASES
WASHINGTON, Dec. 26.—The use of |
oil as fuel on railroads of the United I
States greatly Increased last year and
the results of its introduction Into tho
' 111 1 <■. 1 States navy have fully met ex- .
pectations. Steamship companies also 1
are equipping their vessels with oil i
burners. I
J ii the navy two battleships—the
North Dakota and the Delaware — were |
thus equipped and four • battleships I
now in course of construction will burn !
oil as auxiliary to coal. Fifteen de
stroyers also will be thus equipped.
The total production In 1909 was IS2,- I
1 134,274 barrels, as compared with 178,- I
528,366 barrels In 1908. I
The value of the 1909 production was ;
■ $128,243,788, while that of 1908 was val- ;
ued at $129,079,184. i
California, Oklahoma and West Vir- I
gtnla added greatly to the increase in |
production. California, gained 21.85 per I
cent, Oklahoma 4.5 per cent, whil'i !
j West Virginia Increased 12.83 per cent. |
I Utah and Wyoming 1 produced only i
22,137 barrels. !

SANDSTORM LEVIES ASSESSMENT
Assessment No, 1 of one cent ,a Bhara
has been levied by the board of direc
tors of the Sandstorm-Kendall Consol
idated Kilning company and is payable
Immediately at the office of the soe
retary of the company, a. ii. Howe, in

the purpose of providing a fund for
resuming operations on the property,
which will probably be done within the
near future,
The Sandstorm and Kendall were the,
scone of the first sold discoveries In
the camp, and the Sandstorm soon be
came noted for its ptoiitie production.
Resumption of work will doubtless re
sult In again placing the property In

CHANGES SURVEY
YUM A, Ariz., Dec. 26.—Surveyors of i
the Ban Diego and Arizona railroad
have been at work recently on the west
side of the valley changing the loca
tion line from the, mountains to tho I
west side canal to avoid some broken
ground. The new lino runs south f om
Coyote Wells and strikes the canal
about a mile south of the bridge in
stead of a mile north and thence runs
northeasterly to the crossing of New
river. This Is probably the final i<>
cation. The surveyor.-; began work on
a tentative line from the mountains to
t'alexico, but abandoned the survey
after a day and a half of work because
Of the Impracticable nature of tho !
country.

RAILROADS EXPEND
MILLIONS ON WORK
Improvements of Harriman Sys
tem and the S. P. in North
west Cost $50,000-000
PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 26.— Expendi
tures of the Harriman system In the
northwest, Including the Southern Pa
cific lines In Oregon and all the roads
now a part of the Oregon, Washington
Railroad & Navigation company,
amount to $50,000,000 in betterments,
improvements and additions, besides
its fixed charges, operating expenses
and payrolls, which aggregate a like
amount, since July 1. 1906.
Of this sum $16,000,000 was spent on
new construction in Oregon, $10,000,000
for construction in Washington and
Idaho, and $8,000,000 in betterments dis
tributed oVer the entire system. These
three items do not Include any work
on the Oregon &- Washington line be
tween Portland and Puget sound, which
was given a valuation of [15,1 I 0,1
when the merger was completed last
week. Additional expenditures not cov
ered in either of these classes place
the total figure in excess of the $50,000,
--0000 mark.
When it is considered that this re
flects an outlay of virtually $1,000,000
a month, it is easier to realize the
amount of money tnat has been dis
tributed through the states of Oregon,
Washington and Idaho by this railroad
system in the last fifty-four months.
