Declrinoa* and Cltran Fruits
The activity and hustle usually noticeable in
thf wholesale fruit district on Saturday morning,
when retail tradesmen are laying In extra sup
plies for Sunday wants, was lacking yesterday.
The wet weather checked trading in all lines and
the whole market was quiet, with prices for most
descriptiona inclined to sag. Cranberries fur
nished the exepption to ux rule, the light sup
plies t.»ing flrmiy held at a further advance. Tbe
receivers who controlled the hulk of the supply
were selling at $13^14 a barrel yesterday and at
the close of haziness it was announced that the
price would be $15 flat Monday morning. Hand
lers decided on this advance when they learned
that there was a scarcity of cranberries through
out The entire west and that buyers from lyos
Angeles, Portland. Seattle and even Salt Lake
City were in this market for supplies. As stated
some days aro. importers are unable to obtain
supplies in tbe east. . >

Poultry and Game
The poultry market had a quiet and easy
closing, quite a surplus of western and domestic
ft-.ickens having to be held over. Offerings of
western poultry for the week just ended, in
cludiny what was held over from Saturday to
Monday, were a little less than 10 cars. This
lurgp supply, of course, weakened the market.
Csme w»s in better demand yesterday than on
an? of tbe preceding «iavg of the week, but sales
were rone too brisk and prices for nearly every
thing on the list were weak.

C. E. Blckford"s circular gives the receipts of
coffee at this port thus far this year at 237.102
bags, against 23*5.041 hags during the same time
last year. The sales from first hands were 249,
200 bags, against 239,563. The stock on hand
Decemh>r 1 was 1.353 bags, against 7.R29. The
world's visible supply December 1 was 14.706,000
bags, against 17,555,000 bags last year. The cir
cular says:
"Reduced estimates of the present Brazilian
crop, unfavorable reports of the coming crop, an
extremely heavy buying movement throughout the
entire coffee world for immediate requirements,
and the apparent realization by dealers of the
strong position of the article, have caused the
sensational advance in New York of about l»ic
on options and 2c on spot coffees.
"Messrs. 5?. Caldelra & Co. of Santos cable un
der date of November 23 that the present Santos
crop in their opinion will be less than 8.000,000
bags, and that the next crop Is seriously damaged
through unfavorable climatic conditions, and that
a reasonable estimate of same can b* placed at
10,000.000 hags. Many similar reports of the
same tenor have been received, which, if substan
tiated by subsequent developments, would indi
cate that a further advance In values In coffee
the world over is Inevitable.
"The local market has never been so bare of
snpplies and for the first time in more than 20
years there is not a single bag of Central Amer
ican coffee in importers' hands here. The small
arrivals of new crop coffees received by the last
steamer were readily absorbed on a bapfg of 14% c
for prime washed. 34V*c for jrood washed and
13*4fel3a;c for fair or thirds of washed Guate
malas. An unprecedentedly large business has
also been done in Central American coffees to
arrive, unwashed Salvador selllnc at 13%« for
current quality and 14<« tor superior. Washed
Salvador, 'crop percentages. 14Vi(9il45ic an 4
washed Guatemala?, crop percentages, at from
14^c to 15e.
"The first heavy shipments of new crop coffees
are expected ucre about the 10th inst.. and 6ince
supplies in jobbers' and manufacturers' hands,
with but few exceptions, are reduced to uncom
fortably small holdings, if not almost exhausted.
n continuance of the present range of values can
l>e looked for, with possibilities of further ad

Cotton Market
NEW YORK Dec. 3.— E. F. Hutton & Co.'s
wire says: "Liverpool is down a little more
than due. For the last week spot sales in Liver
pool have been relatively small. According to
the New York cotton exchange figures, the visi
ble supply of American increased 262.480 bales
last week, against 'a decrease of 20,257 one year
ago. The movement into sight is now -313,000
bales ahead of last year, and If this crop is no
larger than last year, as some of the small
crop estimators would have us believe, there is
no excuse for such a tremendously heavy move
ment from this time on, as the price is no more
attractive than was the case at this time last
year, and on the basis of small crop estimates
there should really remain much less" cotton in
the. country than was the case last year.
r 'Fall River sales of print cloths for the week
are estimated at 150.000 to ICO.OOd pieces. Fall
River cloth mills have all been running full time
during the week, though there were still many
looms stopped.. Manufacturers regard the outlook
as still very unsatisfactory."

Red Star Ledge
L. P. Woodbury, manager of the Reel
Star mine at Alleghany, says that the
outlook at the Red Star, where a rich
strike was made two weeks ago today,
is highly encouraging. Some rich ore
has been taken from the vein during
the last two' weeks and Manager Wood
bury naturally feels elated at the pros
pect of getting back , some of the in
vestment he and his friends have made.
The vein was intersected at a sharp
angle and the miners have just got
clear through it. It Is freely inter
spersed with gold and there is every
evidence of permanency. Ascociated
with the vein is gouge that seems to
be composed of sedimentary matter,
but which carries considerable quanti
ties of free gold. The gouge has to go
through the mill -tf-ith the rest of the
rich ore. — Nevada City Transcript.
The ore that is being taken out of the
Red Star mine at Alleghany is very
rich. It seems to be in a class by itself
and is altogether different from any
rock found thereabouts heretofore. We
are Informed by one who' saw some of
this ore that the gold is about the size
of No. 6 shot and that the quartz is
literally filled with it. H. L.Jahnson
of Alleghany told our informant that a
piece of rock which was on exhibition
and weierhed 45 pounds would easlly^be
worth $60 per pound." Of course this
is not the average value of the whole
ledge, but several tons of. this rock
have been taken out. — Downieville
Low Grade Ore Reduction
An ore reduction process that will
enable the ores of Austin and tributary
mining fields to be treated at home at
a profit has been sought for many
years. The high grade of this camp
has made it famous; has made its
record of $50,000,000 of production; but
it is In the saving of the values con
tained In the ores that will not pay .to
ship that lies the future importance of
the camp in the mining world.
This problem has been solved for
Austin by the Austin -Manhattan con
solidated mining company. The Elec
trostatic dry concentrating plant, which
has been in. operation by this company,
for a month, is a proven success. Con
centrates worth $120 to $130 -per ton
are being turned out wiin a 7 to 1
concentration. This is ore that in all
past mining in Austin would have been
considered waste. There is enough of
this class of ore here to keep busy a
plant of many times the capacity of
the initial unit of this company, which
has vouchsafed to Austin a new lease
of life of many years, s ,
The success of this process is not
important alone to Austin. It is of ex
treme importance, to the state of Ne
vada. The process -eliminates abso
lutely the water problem. What water
is in the rock when it comes from the
mine is extracted ~in a dryer before the
.ore starts on. its course of treatment.
Thf#e are many camps and mines -in
the 'interior of Nevada that have been
idle because there was no water supply
to warrant the erection of: milling-fa
cilities. These camps are, productive of
milling and not shipping ore; Success
at Austin means success In a 'score of
other camps in the state by the adop
tion of the, same process. TherAustln
Manhattan company, in- the, meantime,
has proceeded with, development * work
in tbe Jack: Pot mine: in' the Austin
gold belt until -there Ib a new,ore.suo
ply more than sufficient , to keep. bAiay
this winter' a^ mill-with a capacity -of
150 ' tons dally. vThis . is , to . stay, nothing

Discovery of Method of Dry Concentrating Treatment of Rock Now
Discarded as Waste Which Will Mean a Large Saving to Mines
Points of interest in the mining news last*week were the announcement of a new process for reducing low
grade ores by a dry concentrating treatment, which, it is said, completely eliminates the water problem and renders
ore. valuable which heretofore has been discarded as waste. The success of this process is said to mean a large
saving' to the mines. • . y
Flattering reports were received from many mines, both in California and ' Nevada. Ap" recent
strike in the Highland mine of Siskiyou county, an account of which was given last Sunday. :d on
good authority that-tliree mules packed away from the Highland for the smelter ore worth $£„ :\ /JO for
\u0084,,: Fine lots of ore were taken from the Tightner, Red Ledge and other mines. ' '}ffp
' A rich strike is reported in a new district near Rawhide, Nev., and a fine run is .being made on Big Four ore
at the War Eaglemill in the Manhattan district, Nevada.
Additional details of the sale of the
Highland mine^of Siskiyou : county,
which was announced in the Call last
Sunday, have been received. , The con
sideration, as already stated, was $200,
000. Ore packed out on three mules
to Yreka and sent by express to the'
.Sel.by smelting- and refining company
netted the owners $30,000. .
' In addition to the Highland, the
same purchasing syndicate bought the
Diamond gold mine, paying $25,000 for
it, and a dozen or more claimholders
sold their holdings to the new company
at good prices.
The Highland is In the Salmon river
mining district and In a good neigh
borhood, another mine in the same sec
tion having paid. §3, ooo,ooo in dividends
to an English company.
Tightner Mine
At the Tightner the usual comple
ment of men is being employed and
the drift is steadily being driven
ahead northwards on the vein. Every
now and then rich ore is encountered,
and the owner. <H. L. Johnson, is mak
ing a choice collection of nest eggs.
The eggs, range In value from $50 to
$2,000, and are-all 'of the pure yellow
yolk. Meanwhile a pile of quartz con
taining high grade sulphurets is being
accumulated and in due time a crush
ing will be made and the rich concen
trates sent to the smelter. — Nevada

Dividends Show Reduction
KENNETT (Shasta Co.)— Authentic

Middle Yuba Quartz Bonded
The Middle Yuba gold quartz mine
has been leased and bonded by E. A.
Bauder to Walter Bernard, this trans
action constituting a \u25a0 deal, that shows
that capital is being directed toward
a section of the Alleghany gold- bo
nanza zone that has been- rather neg
lected though possessed of all the sur
face earmarks of unusual richness.
The Middle -Yuba mine is situated
on the Middle Yuba river slope of La
fayette ridge between Moores flat and
Minnesota. The claim was located by
E. A. Bauder about- seven years ago,
and the ledge is from one to four feet
wide and well defined.
Some very rich ore has been found
in the ledge.- The Middle Yuba ledge
is a north extension of the Sleeping
Beauty mine, which is situate on the
Nevada county side of the river, and
is owned by Muller,- wholesale -milliner

Inyo Mines \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0
Since the recent big silver-lead
strike near Darwin it looks like the
old mining district of southern Inyo
was about to see a revival of . the
oJxien days when , millions were taken
out of the mines of that part of the
country. Those were the days long
before the advent of the railroad, when
all the supplies were hauled by team
from Los Angeles and the bullion was
shipped the same way. Then the old
Cerro Gordo was busy paying dividends
and many other of the old mines were
doing tlie same. The bullion shipped
from the southern part of Inyo county
practically built the old town of San
Pedro, and many men are still living
in this part of the country who used
to team across the Mojave desert into
Los Angeles and keep their teams in
corrals which were built where now
is the heart of Los Angeles on Broad
wai r . ; c;>
Money from these mines built the
Nadeau" hotel in. Los Angeles in early
days, and many other of the early im
provements of the southern city owe
their beginning to the mines of Inyo
This part of the mining country of
the west has lain practically dormant
for many years. Some .work has been
done right along and every one who
knew realized that this section was
one of the most highly mineralized in
the west, but for some reason little
work has been done within late years.
The -strike mado by Bert Shively re
cently near Darwin bids fair to change
this condition of things, for the new
strike is proving to be a wonder. .The
ore being mined, or it might better be
said quarried, as itis right on top.of
the ground. Four 8-horse teams are
now engaged in. hauling this high
grade silver-lead ore to .Keeler, and
other teams from Skidoo and the
Owens valley will be put to work this
week. The character, extent. and size,
of this discovery are such that it will
place that section in the front ranks
of the silver-lead sections of the coun
try. While eight' feet is the . lowest '
they are down,, they have thousands
of tons of ore in sight. This is cer
tainly the greatest strike of the kind
ever made in this country. . ••
It Is one of the chearjest countries
in the worlds to mine in provided it
had the proper transportation ' and
smelting facilities. The ground is dry
and the formation is; such that very
little timbering is needed. . In addition !
to this there would be no, trouble from
a smelter as there is in Some sections.
A combination of the interests in
the Darwin district is 1 now under way
looking towards the building of a
smelter either at. Keeler or Olancha,
and also toward the building- of a
narrow gauge road into that country.
If the present broad gauge road is con
tinued up -Owens valley it is very pojs
sible that the -old narrow gauge road
will be -torn up and used in building
a road into that section. The matter
has " already been jolaced before some
of the - Southern Pacific officials and
they have agreed to look into the mat
ter. If the tonnage can be -guaranteed
them they will undoubtedly build the
Among the -mines now working in
this county is the Cerro Gordo, which
will soon begin - shipping, ore again.
Millions have been produced from this
old mine and. millions more will.be
produced. v
Mr. Morrow of the Argus property
has» secured 'estimates from- some of
the biggest -concerns in the' country
regarding the building of a smelter in
that .; section. -They : have-give n him'an
estimate of $15,000 for a 50-ton smel
ter and 830.000 for a 100-ton smelter.

Looking to the Mother Lode
Men who are well posted in mining
affairs are promising great activity
along the mother lode in the- counties
tributary to Stockton, and the future
looks encouraging for greater develop
ment throughout the mining' region
which has made California famous for
more than half a century. "When spec
ulators were rushing Into the oil fields
capital was taken from the fields of
quartz mining and the leading counties
east of Stockton suffered for want of
means to develop ttye known good prop T
ertles awaiting men of means to handle
them. : Now that the oil business has
been so generally absorbed by great
combinations of capital, men of smaller
fortunes are again looking to the
mother, lode, and things are brighter
for the counties- of the southern mines
belt. \\
Deep mining along the lode is profit
able, and men who know the fields look
for a boom in the sections where deep
shafts have uncovered paying veins.
In Amador the deep works in the Key
stone and Eureka properties, among
others, have shown that the great
quartz fissures are dividend producers
when their ores have been reached on
levels 2,000 and more feet from the sur
face, and such mining is no longer ex
perimental. The South' Eureka, in Am
ador county, located between the fa
mous Eureka, and Keystone properties,
is today one of the best paying, prop
erties in the state, and the development
was made within the past year by-sink-,
ing deeper on, the vein. Following the
mother lode southward it has been
found that deep mining pays in Cala
veras, Tuolumne and Mariposa counties,
and ' everybody knows the wonderful
success of the deep mines of Nevada
county, where the vein matter had been
dug into at a depth of close to a mile
from the surface.
All along the great quartz zone
which \u25a0 made California famous as a
gold producer are many promising

Red Ledge Nuggets
Hector "Williamson of "Washington
came to town yesterday morning,
bringing with him a collection of" gold
nuggets .and specimens" from the
famous Red Ledge near "Washington.
Williamson is one of the owners of the
mine and .the display that he brought
here equals 'any ever seen in this city.
The pieces range in size from that of a
pea to as large as a man's hand. Many
of the pieces are pure gold, as pretty
as the eye would care. to gaze upon.
While here .Williamson sold a large,
number of the nuggets to a jewelry
firm who will convert them into stick
pins, brooches and other forms of jew
elry, as they hav^ an extensive demand
for quartz jewelry. Some, of the speci
mens show the imprint of leaves and
are most handspme, while others are
pure leaf gold. One piece is pure gold
on one end, w,hile the other end shows
sprinkling of white quartz.
. The Red Ledge continues to yield the
precious stuff In quantities tkat pleases
the owners. — Grass Valley Union.
Graniteville Lively
George Mainhart. owner of the An
cho mine in the Graniteville district,
left this morning for the purpose of,
making arrangements to work the
property during the winter months.
Mainhart stated prior to leaving, that
he had sufficient supplies at the prop
erty to last until spring and that the
mine was in excellent shape for con
tinuous work. The autumn has been
exceedingly favorable to mining com
panies operating in the mountains in
that it has permitted them ample op
portunity to get in all the supplies nec
essary for the winter. ,"'
The Ancho has been running- steadily
for. more than a year under the man
agement of Mainhart, who has had
the property for many years, and it is
developing into a substantial property.
Ten stamps are kept steadily at work
reducing the ore, that is taken from the
vein and there is a good crew of men
at work, Operations during the winter
will be in charge of Frank Mainhart,
son of the owner of the Ancho.
Graniteville will be a lively camp
this winter. It will have more men at
work than in years at this season of
the year. Besides the Ancho the Erie
•is employing 50 men and the company
is contemplating further improvements.
The company has -plenty of su^nlies
and the men will be kept at work all
winter. — Nevada City Transcript.

Goldfield Prospects
. C. M. .Thorndyke, whose, mining ex
perience extends from Mexico and Cen
tral America to Alaska and from Ne
vada to China and the Philippines, was
a visitor at Goldfieia within the week,
and returning from that famous camp
may be informally quoted as being
highly optimistic as to the ultimate
production of that. camp.
"I look for Goldfleld to enjoy a re
vival which will only be second to that
enjoyed by Virginia. City," said Thorn
dyke. "There is practically only one
mine working there now, the Consoli
dated, and that company Is taking out
vast values each month from the one
shaft in the camp, and has undoubtedly
reached the vast deposits that underlie
the fault, which has thrown' so many
miners off their calculations. Gold
field, in fact, is just being learned by
the miners. Conditions there have never
heretofore been - clearly understood.
Mining- was carried on' In the dark, so
to speak. The surface values were
found, but where the great geological
slip occurred mining stopped. The ore
was lost. In the Clermont it was found
again, and Is being explored exten
sively. It- seems to me to be only a
matter of time before the true con
ditions of the camp will be understood
ma-way that will give assurance to
miners, and activity will begin all
along the old workings. When this has
occurred and the ore at depth is lo
cated, then will begin the real ecrta t of
production \u25a0 for Goldfield. • This revival
no doubt will eclipse all ; former bo
nanza 1 days In the camp, and the boomi
will- be entirely, oo r Its merits, the
camp < will be a producer ?of gold more
wonderful than any camp that has yet
been found."— Owens Valley .Herald.
Manhattan Big Four
Five bars of gold bullion, valued ap
proximately at. 520,000, were placed on
display in the windowsfof the-Tonopah
banking corporation \u25a0 and -drew a large
crowd of interested people. • The.bul-'
lion was brought in from Manhattan by
A. J. Poak and was extracted from the
\u25a0Poak>and Chapman, lease on the Big:
Four ground In that camp. It was the
result of a 400 ton cleanup -and it ,is
estimated' that "the value of the ore
milled averaged above \u25a0; 160 ,- to the ton.
Shortly, after Poak*s arrival, Fred Chap
man, brother of j Cecil Chapman. - one of
the< owners of the lease,, who is: super
intendent of the' workings, arrived with
a small bulllon,bar.; The -last bar rwas
practically the ' remnant : of ; : the , clean -
up was .valued :at about $2,000.
Further- values will be irecoveredj from'
the cyanides,- and this will* bring the
total value of ; the ore 'somewhere- in
the neighborhood of $25,000.
"This, is the .second bullion- shipment
by Poak and Chapman, the first having
been made several months ago and was
of a value of about $20,000. The lease
is now in excellent condition, and
as considerable machinery haa Just.been
installed the next cleanup shoNild great
ly surpass the two former ones. A
good tonnage of high grade ore has
.been blocked out and oan now be ex
tracted with but little trouble. The
milling facilities in the northern camp
are excellent and several good sized
\u25a0 fortunes are assured from the lease
hold on the Big Four. — Tonopah Bo
nanza. -;"l.';:
On November 11 the Big Four leas
ing company began a run of ore at the
War Eagle mill that is making a phe
nomenal showing in the values that are
being turned from the plates. The run
began in the night of the 11th, and
every 24 hours following that date
there has been taken from the plates
an amount of amalgam that up to the
present writing has averaged 700
ounces per day. This is a showing that
can hardly be equaled by any in the
There were 400 tons of ore on the
dump when the mill run started, and
at the time the Post goes to pres3 eight
days have elapsed and there are still
SO tons on the dump. The average re
turns from the milling have been 700
ounces of amalgam per day. This amal
gam is running 40 per cent In gold.
This means that when the run is fin
ished here there will have been taken
from the plates 700 ounces of amalgam,
and the amalgam running 40 per cent
gold will yield 2,800 ounces, or. in round
figures, the magnificent sum of $42,000.

Silver Summit Deal
Word comes to us from Chicago to
the effect that parties with extensive
financial backing are negotiating for
the purchase of the controlling Inter
est in the holdings of the Silver Sum
mit mining company. In the event that
the deal is consummated extensive op
erations will be inaugurated in the near
future. The estate of the company is
located about several miles west of
Eina and consists of quite an acreage
of highly mineralized ground with good
comfortable quarters for the employes.
A great deal of work was done on the
property about three years ago and ore
of a sensational value was uncovered,
but owing to the poor management of
the officials who were in charge at that
time the property became so badly en
tangled In debt that It was forced to
close down. Since then Q. E. Osgood
and associates of Chicago took over
control and liquidated nearly, if not
quite all. of the outstanding liabilities.
Should the present plans be carried out
it will mean much to the mining indus
try of Mlna, as the mine' is one of the
nearest tributary to tills place, and
sufficient work In the past has been
done and high grade uncovered to
demonstrate that with good manage
ment and • thorough development the
property can be made a big producer
of ore. — Western Nevada Miner.
Option on Carson Mine
Constantine Bros, and Matt, who
have a bond and lease on the Carson
mine at Mason Pass, from which they
recently made a carload shipment
which gave returns of a little better
than $40 per ton, last week gave a. ten
day option on the property to Chicago
parties. • The lattter are drifting at the
fifty-foot level and If the ore body at
that point shows up "as good as it
did above, there is little doubt but
what the option will be exercised. —
Yerington Times.
Rawhide Rich Ore
Craig Catterson, who is in the livery
business and mining at Rawhide, re
ports a rich strike In a new mining
district twelve miles from Schurz and
between that place and Rawhide.
The strike was made by Judd Terrill
and George Pollinger. who are part
ners of Mr. Catterson. Only a little
\u25a0work on the surface has been done so
far, but an assay which is believed to
represent the average value of the ore.
gave.returns of $96 to the ton in silver.
The mineralized zone Is apparently not
extensive, the ledge from which this
ore .was obtained being the only likely
looking one in the vicinity, but if the
values hold out there will be at least
one good mine.
Mr. Catterson reports that the mines
of Rawhide are looking good, but the
camp is quiet. He reports that the
Kearns No. 1 lease on the Queen is
shipping steadily to the Oueen mill and
keeping it busy. The BTack Eagle Is
a mine also, he says, but the values
in the ore cannot be saved by the
Queen mine. A 100-ton lot was re
cently run through but the results were
very unsatisfactory. — Yerington Times.
Mason Valley Mines
O. J. McConnell. the president of the
Mason Valley mines company, and Jules
Labarthe. the expert who is general
manager.of mine and smelter, were in
camp this'- week and made an Inspec
tion of the mine as" well as looking
over the work being done at the smel
ter site.
This was the first visit of McConnell
for some time, and he was thoroughly
pleased with the progress and develop
ment of the mine since he last saw it.
It is not only his opinion, but that of
practically every man who goes through
it. that the Mason Valley never looked
nearly as good in Its history as it does
at present.
It is seldom indeed that any mine im
pboves so uniformly under development
as does the Mason Valley: There has
been a steady and constant improve
ment. Known ore bodies have Increased
in size and values as they were de
veloped and entirely new shoots have
been opened up.
There is ore enough above the level
of the No. 4 tunnel (from which the
shaft Is being sunk) to keep the smel
ter going five or six years. This ore
will be carried by a tramway to the
spur track, therefore the question as to
the lower tunnel need not be decided
for some time.— r Yerington Times.
Nevada Wonder
The annual statement of the Nevada
Wonder mining company, covering oper
ations up to and including September
30, was made public laat week and dis
closes a highly nattering state of af
fairs. According to this report the
amount of ore actually developed to
date is 32.505 tons, of a value of $$32.
000.* Two projects already well under
way. the first unit of the milt and the
water system, have cost to date $ 49.16$
and $61,691. respectively, and the com
pany's holdings in the Wonder 'district
present a busy scene these days. Some
thing of the. solidity of this mining
company will be noted when it is known
that its assets are $2,111,940.
. Judging from present indications It
will not be long before the Nevada
Wonder Is one of the state's heaviest
bullion tax paying properties, for every
effort is, being directed toward Instal
ling a suitable plant for the working
of the tremendous body of ore that is
known to exist in their mineral ground.
