Cotton Mnrkct
NEW YORK. Nov. 2«.— r. P. Hutton & Co.'s
wire, says: • I TTi» cotton world, particularly the
sp»enlatlve. worM. ha s oenln OTerestimated the
crop..' Th<* spinner has faile«l to provide more
than momentary needs and mus.t now bppln to
pay any price the Termer demands. With Texas
already showing a t-layilinjr deficiency in winter
moisture and with boll weevil entr.enched In the
Mississippi valley ami moTine eastward ,V) miles
per year, hopes of larger crops arc more, of hope
man of jud)rm*>nt. <;overnmenf fisnireß ran not
be- so larjte as to force the sonth to sell the rem
nant of their crop, and micht be so small that
it would convince the spinner that he must im
mediately secure his supplies or close his mill.
The situation, statistically and financially, fs
more bullish than a year ajto. and when spin
ners and speculators discover the. situation It will
create a profound sensation In' the speculative
world. Next Monday will h> the first December
notice day. and it Is thought .probable that no-

Cincinnati Hill
The quiet work of exploiting- the Cin
cinnati Hill.mine that has been carried
on under the direction of the manage
ment of the North Star company, has
revealed some interesting Information,
although the company-has not made
any public announcement of the fact. It
has been learned that the ledere has
been encountered and that assays of
the ore show that there is none of it
that will sro less than from $12 to $15
a ton. which is much higher grade than
the ore in the North Star, which aver
ages about $12 a ton; and allows a
handsome profit even at that ,-fbsrure.
The Cincinnati Hill was worked In
early days-and was a. good producer,
but, like all other claims, had a hard
pan that required money to penetrate.
Now that sufficient capital has been ap
propriated for the purpose'of develop
ing the claim, it is destined to be'one

It is interesting: to know that the
North Star company owns about two
square miles of this township, to say
nothing of the mineral rights that are
owned even under the business houses
of the city. Their, properties ' are all
in excellent condition, and the. last re
port of the superintendent was to 'the
effect that sufficient ore had been

Highland Mine Sold
YREKA, Nov. 18— The sale of th«»
Highland mine in this, county was
closed yesterday, and a deed to
Herman Mattern of- Ashland, - Ore.,
has been placed on . record. The
consideration was $200,000, of which
$25,000 was paid 90 flayg ago, and the
balance of $175,000 was paid through
the Siskij'ou County bank on the de
livery, of the deed.* Mr. Mattern repre
sents a syndicate of Hague, Holland,
capitalists. The former owners of the
mine were George A. Tebtre. R. S. Tay
lor, J. M. Tethrow, J.-M. O'Neill and
the late George D. Butler.
The sale of this mine will, without
doubt, mean much for the mining de
velopment of this oounty, as the cap
italists'of Hague have made a reputa
tion for their selection of the most
promising mining fields of the world
for their operations. — Sacramento
Greenhorn Creek Bonded
Claude E. Gillis, representing inter

ing .Greenhorn creek and "tributary
ground from the county road to the

which, is already operating dredging
properties in various sections of the
state. The sale price of the property
is $50,000.
Drills will at once be put to work on
the ground and the property will be
thoroughly prospected before Christ
mas. The property is known to be
rich and should pay. handsomely as a
dredging proposition. With the sale
of this property and the Highland mine
at good figures, and other deals all but
consummated, the mining industry is
looking up. and Siskiyou will come
into her own as a gold producing coun

Grover-Murphy Bought •
The ownership of the Grover-Mur
phy quartz mine in the old Hirschman
diggings, west of this city, has passed
from the original owners to the Hono
lulu company, which has been operat
ing it for the last two years. The
operating company has made the final
payment on the mine, the money being
paid over by Dr. S. D. Gynlais Walters,
who came here from Honolulu for this
purpose. Those .who owned the mine
fre Newton F. Grover. Mrs. K. M. Wil

Van Worter. are residents of Nevada
The- company lias equipped the
Grover-Murphy with an adequate
hoisting.and pumping plant, including
an air compressor, and machine drills,
besides Kinking an Incline shaft 350
feet. A drift has been run north 400
feet on the vein, showing a good chute
of ore. ,
The purchase price was $20,000.
The company is also interested in
other mines in this district, one of
which is the Norton in Willow valley,
which is being worked under the man
agement of J. M. Fly { The Hawaii
people are much impressed with the
possibilities of the district, as is shown
by the investments they have made.

opening up the property. Aft soon as
water for power can be obtained they
will operate more extensively at the

Red Ledge Ore
Word comes from Washington to the
effect that the richest and most ex
tensive strike yet made in the famous
Red Ledge mine, two miles this side of
Washington, occurred there a few days
ago. The Red Ledge is being worked
by the Williamson brothers and Clyde
Cole, who own the property. >
The owners brought to Washington
a large box full of specimens that
have attracted much attention. The
ore is as beautiful as any ever seen in
this part of the state.
It was ip the lower tunnel that the
big find was made and it has been
holding out ever since. Not only in
the lower tunnel has the rich bonanza

made In the upper tunnel, where not
so much work has been done. — Grass

The Balaklala smelter is operating
satisfactorily with the Cottrell fume,
controller,* and the device appears to
be completely successful. One furnace
is in operation, and it is ,-planned to
blow In the second within a short time.
The recent advance of copper is doing
much to encourage the company to
proceed along more comprehensive
lines, but it is hardly likely that the
third furnace will be utilized for some
time to come. The farmers appear to
be satisfied with the control of the
smoke, and the company does not ap
prehend further trouble from this
source. The . smelter; is. at present
handling considerable ore from the
Bully Hill.
The Mammoth copper., company is
operating three, furnaces' steadily and

Strike in Humboldt County
One of the most important mining
discoveries of recent years in this sec
tion of the state has just been reported
by W. E; Olnistead of this city in, the
form of gold deposits located near the
Trinity-Humboldt line, within about 50
miles of this city. The discovery has
just been made and Mr. Olmstead.' who
is the sole owner of the properties, is
now making arrangement to work his
holdings. : .
The new mine is located in the chan
nel of a prehistoric river now over 1,000
feet above the present bed of the Trin
ity river and its isolation, and rather
unexpected location account for the
fact that the deposit 1 has not lieretofore
been found out. Investigations and
prospecting carried on by the owner of
the mine show that the property is ex
ceedingly rich and it .is ; alalmed . that
a man with a pick and shovel can
realize as high as $20 a day from work
ing the property.* Thus It can be seen
that, the new mine compares favorably
with the famous strikes :of the early
Cays in the California mines.
Although it is. now: too late In the
season to open up the mine, next season
all will be in readiness to. commence
operations with a head of 1.500 Inches
of. water, and ;with a large , crew great
results are promised. — Humblodt Times.
Red Star Strike
The strike made'in therßed Star mine
yesterday is < said .to be the. richest
made in the Alleghany district. The
owners of adjoining claims; are; holding
their, properties at fabulous prices and
if they can' prove' their 1 mines are on
an -extension : of ' the Tightnerv. vein,
which it is. supposed was encountered
yesterday in the Red Star, they will get
their prices. ' \u25a0> : f ' '<*;;.
It is reported that the strike is richer
than that made in the Tlghtner mine,
from which several million dollars were
taken. The - ledge ; at th c ; Red Star has
been cut through to a, width of^slx'feet
and" the opposite wall has; not "been
reached,. which shows conclusively that
the ledgers wider.. Messrs. ;Woodbury
and pugan, 1 who:. have a bond; on: the
mine, will; take out millions,. as a ledge
six- feet wide containing -such c rich \u25a0' ore
as was struck \u25a0 yesterday/ soon runs : into
the hundreds of thousands.i tThe r ore'.i«
so rich that it , has been .'deemed j neces
sary, to ; place t watchmen to > guards it.
.The owners .will; not, make -a y definite
statement as to the,value of the^quartz.
but the miners who were working in
the tunnel the: time of the strike
place the value per- ton in the thous
ands and declare that the quartz is
nearly all gold. - . •
This strike in the Red Star will prob
ably cause a rush of; prospectors to the
Alleghany district next spring-, as the
season is now too far advanced to per
mit of any work on the surface. • Jhe

bility of other strikes being made in
mines on the same vein.— -Sacramento
Bunker Hill
The monthly cleanup fell somewhat
short of the usual yield owing to the
fact that the large bodies of ore taken
out in development work had to be
disposed of. It was slightly below the
average grade of rock crushed former
ly, but still good milling rock, and the
only wayto dispose of it was to keep
the mill going on it, and this course
still left a large accumulation of ore
that the 20 stamp mill was unable to
handle. There is ample ore being taken
out at present. in the prosecution of.
development work only to keep 40
stamps going. The yield last month
was under $20,000. The regular divi
dend of 5 cents per share was paid on
the 15th. ?\u25a0 \u25a0 . ,
The 1950 level continues to open up
in fine shape. The drift has penetrated
the v ledge a distance of 500 feet, and
the ore at the breast is almost identical
in grade with that encountered.in-the
1750 level. It gives every promise of
beingv equal both in size and richness
to that in the level above. \u25a0»\u25a0-
The addition of 20 stamps to the mill
is making satisfactory progress. The
building was being inclosed with gal
vanized iron the first of the week. The
batteries are ready to be put in pjace.
and all other machinery will be ready
as soon as needed. It is expected to
have the 40 stamps dropping some time
in January; — Amador Ledger.

New Pioche Company
With the final payment being made
this week of the original purchase
price of $470,000, the Pioche Consoli
dated mining and reduction company
winds up its business and passes ;into
history/and in its place looms . up big
nnd promising the Consolidated Pioche
Mines company, taking in not only the
old Pioche company, but much of- the
Ohio-Kentucky and the Nevada-Utah's
most productive territory. - \u25a0
The Pioche Consolidated was organ
ized nearly 30 years ago. and was the
first great merger proposition in the
famous old camp. It took in such
properties as the Day mine. Raymond-
Ely, Meadow Valley, Washington, Cre
ole,- Half Moon and other well known
properties located over in the Day dis
trict and in the town proper. It em
braced some 50 claims, covering the
richest territory In the district, and
was capitalized for the enormous sum
of $20. 000,000. :
Things went on swimmingly with
the old- Pioche Consolidated while sil
ver was at its zenith, above the $1
mark, but when It dropped to S4 cents
or less the company began to lose
ground. Finally it resulted in the in
corporation of the Nevada-Utah, which
took an option on the property. In
1907 the new company secured deed
for the-sum of $470,000. the last pay
ment of which President Thomas J.
Osborne of the Consolidated Ik now
making to the original stock, holders.
As Osborne puts it: •
"This .winds up the old Pioche Con
solidated, and in its shoes now stands
the rejuvenated Nevada-Utah and the'
Consolidated Pioche mines company."
; Woolley, the new president of the
Nevada-Utah, was astonished at, the
amount of milling and high class ore
he found in sight on his recent visit

start an active development campaign

$100 per.- ton. Crosscuts indicate that
the ore body is 10 feet wide. The next

the last week for general officers and
the result will not be known for sev

as the "regulars." while William G.
Schardt, his opponent, is termed the
"insurgent." ' Schardt is chairman of
the generaPexecutive board and has a
large following in certain sections of
the -country. On the Pacific coast he
will receive a comparatively small vote,
but he is making a determined fight In
the -east and there are some members
who think he may beat Huber for the
presidency. His long connection with
the brotherhood in the capacity of
chairman of the general executive
board and as an international organ
izer has made him a strong candidate
for the head of x the brotherhood. In
addition- Schardt has served several
years as president of the Chicago fed
eration of labor and in many other ca
pacities has been prominent in labor
circles. He is credited with having
had much to do in erecting the hand
some headquarters building in Indiana
polls. '
On the Schardt ticket is John Wal
quist for member of the executive
board, and it is said he will add
strength to the ticket. Another candi
date who will help the so called "in

on the executive board. Peter Mc-

It will doubtless surprise many peo
ple who think of labor unions as or
ganizations solely for the purpose of
forcing higher wages from employers
to learn that a large part of the energy
and funds of almost every trade organ
ization is devoted, to various forms of
friendly aid and mutual protection. In
the aggregate these unions have paid
out many millions of. dollars as death,
sick and out of work benefits. They
take, care of their "fellow craftsmen in
jured at work and they maintain em
ployment bureaus which serve a most
useful purpose. Some unions have
established .sanatorium^ where mem
bers who. are ill may be treated at: the
general expense. They provide pensions,
for those who have been permanently
disabled by accident, and in a few in
stances palatial homes for the old and
decrepit members are financed.
