In'a'report to the. meuilwrsof the".Michigan
Beiu Jobl)«r»' aSßOciatiun. Sti-tctary V. IV Cash,
referring to a recent meeting of the board of di
rectors, says that after careful Investigation with
a view to obtaining fresh and reliable informa
tion It was the general impression that a great
many more l>eans had been moved out of the
state than is usually the ruse lit tills time of
the rear, and , that < the quantity ■of beans I re
maining 1* probably lest than that on hand last
year almost at th* first of June. The Michigan
crop report, dated October 1. 1010, indicated a
total yield of 6.113,330 bushels, thresher's meas
ure. Deducting from this, say, ]<> per cent, or
nil..til bushels, as ■„. pick and 400.000 bushels
for need requirements, the supply available'for
market purposes was ,".101.923 bushels, of which
Cash estimates that 3.000.000. bushels have been
marketed, learlnc on hand at farms and in. ele
vators 1.301.623 bushels.i But to be on the con
servative side he makes the present available
stock 2.000.000 bushels.

Hay and Feedstuff*
Scott, Aligner * Miller far of hay: "An-lrals
of hay for the last week were 3.970 tons, quite
»n Increase over those of lust week, which were
2,52.-> ■"«. A good part of these receipts rauM
In by water, and were of Hie poorer varieties
and moved off slowly. The maJoFitv- of thst i
which arrived by rail was of a very good qual
ity, and there has been very little difficulty In
placing the rail shipments—in fart, we even note
a firmness In the market on mil shipments of
good quality. This, no doubt. Is caused by the
phenomenal advance in barley and oats 'luring
the last week, mi.! we should not be surprised
to see the market do better shortly. Wo not*
that several lots of bay bavo changed hands in
the country during the week at advanced prices.
At the came time we also note a great tendency
among the farmers to dispose of their holdings,
some of which have been carried for two years,
before the new crop is available. There has
been a light, demand In the country in some sec- ]
tions and hay Is being shipped to these points i
In a small way. The export demand has been a
trifle bettor, and we note the shipment of one
cargo of .-,(>(> tons to Mexico. Alfalfa and straw
remain as heretofore."

IRIDESCENT OPALS GLEAM
ON SLOPE OF RED MOUNTAIN
News of the Discovery of These Gems Comes From the Randsburg
District in the Southern Part of California
News fmm the mines contained no unusual features last week. A point of interest, however, is the discovery
of opals on Red mountain, in the Randsburg district.
Colorado capitalists have taken over the French Hill group of claims near Greenwood. El Dorado county, and
a new company, capitalized at $5,000,000, has been organized to operate them.
The Kate Hardy mine, in Sierra county, has been sold to San Francisco and San Jose parties, the consideration
not being named.
The mining industry continues active throughout the state.
CALIFORNIA
New Natomas Dredge „
The Natomas Consolidated of Califor
nia. the most powerful dredging com
pany in the world, lias commenced the
building of the second of Its monster
IS cubic fool v gold boats. The new
dredge Is being 1 constructed at Therma
lito, near Oroville. and is designed to
handle 350,000 cubic yards of material
per month. Its length Is 150 feet, with
a width of 80 feet. It will ha able to
dig gravel to a depth 0f,55 feet below
the surface, and will be equipped with
the most modern machinery in every ;
department. The cost of the big- boat
will approximate $300,000. The cost of
maintenance will be large, the power
bills alone amounting to $2,000 per |
month. However, the cost of dredging |
will be kept down to | approximately 2
cents per cubic yard, enabling the com
pany to handle immense quantities of
1 gravel at a fraction of the expense at
tending like work on the part of; the
ordinary small dredge.
■ The NatomM Consolidated recently
installed a similar dredge at Folsom.
which is proving: satisfactory In every
way. • This dredge is operating in one
of the most difficult fields of California,
namely, the celebrated Rebel hill'de
posit. The dredging of this channel !
presented such tremendous difficulties .
that the managers of the various com- !
panics were compelled to Invent a new
type -of dredge -to handle the gravel
successfully. The outcome was the
well known California type of dredger,
pronounced by experts the most per
fect gold boat in the world.
During the.last week the Xatomas
Consolidated purchased several* ex
tensive tracts of land in the Folsom
district, paying an average price of $150
per acre. Altogether several hundred
acres were thus acquired. The • com
pany will proceed to install dredges on
the new properties within a. few months j
If explorations prove as satisfactory as
anticipated. The Natomas Consolidated
is a $25,000,000 corporation and con*
trols many of the best dredging sec
tions in the state. Considerable Los
Angeles capital is Interested in the
company.—Los. Angeles Times.
Randsburg Mines
Opals at Bed —Another re
source of the Hand mining district has
come to light in the discovery of opals
on Red mountain, two miles east of
Johannesburg-. Gem mining In this
section Is a new departure and an ex- j
tremely interesting one. The gems!
found, while small, show good lights
in green, red .yellow and blue and their
various shades. The discovery was
made by Dr. c. L. Garvin and s. it.
Dolbear among the volcanic rocks of
Red mountain while visiting that sec
tion early this, week.' Seminpal has
also been found, the.latter material hav
ing. been. known to exist here for some
time. Plans are now being maVle to
thoroughly prospect the deposits and
search for precious stones. Specimens
of the rock are on exhibition at Johan
nesburg.
William R. Mine—Eight tons of ore
were placed on the dump at the Wil
liam ,11. mine this week by the leasers,
Cronan and William?. This ore, which
pans $40 to $50 per ton was taken out
while sinking below the 65 foot level
where the vein was found.
Two of the owners, W. M. and A. TT
Houser, are laying plans for the opera,,
tlon of this property themselves. The
first work which has been laid out Is
to continue the present shaft 100 feet
deeper.—Randsburg Miner.
Coan Mine ; . V
? Five stamps of the new 10- Stamp
mill at the Coan mine at Indian flat
were started up yesterday morning and
worked like a charm." The machinery
and all other equipment for the five
stamps is on the ground and will be
Installed in a short, time.
Dan . MrGonigal. manager of the
Coan property, and who represents the
Pith-burg syndicate that it developing
the mine,' is well pleased with the
headway that has been made In rig
ging up.
McGonigal took hold of the Coan
early in the winter and started Im
mediately to improve the surface plant,
a modern new hoisting rig being- in
stalled, while the new incline shaft Is
being sunk. While the incline Is being
driven, ore is being taken out of the.
old workings to keep the five'stamps
going. .. ■". • - -,- -■ :::-. ■" •'.-•?-- ' ■
It Is stated that the prospects at
the Coan mine are most favorable and
the showing Is really better than was
expected. Many believe that the prop
erty will develop into a pood paying
proposition.—Grass Valley Union.
French Hill Claims .
'Being one of the largest and most
important mining deals closed in cen
tral California in recent years the cele
brated French Hill claims have been'
taken over by Colorado capitalists and
the Hydro-Electric mining company
has been organized under the laws of
Arizona for ,$5,000,000:

the renewed activities displayed, bids
well for the future importance of
Plaeerville as one of the greatest min
in# centers in the state.
The French Hill claims are on the
mother lode about three miles north
of Greenwood. The deposit of ore here
is one of tlie mo?? extensive dikes,
reefs or ledges exposed along tj>e en
tire length of the mother lode, and its
Idleness all these rears has been due
to the fact that its early locators were
too poor to do anything with it them
selves and. they were afraij to let men
of capital in with them. A 10 stamp
mill was erected on the property in
tlie sixties and successfully operated
for a numher of years.
Xl Dorado county became known
throughout the civilized world through
the discovery of placer scold at Co
loma in 184*? by .lames "VV. Marshall,
and up till tlie time hydraulicking was
stopped by legislative enactment a
few years ago a total of $300,000,000
in nugrgets and gold dust had been
taken from the ravines, creeks and
slopes of this county—more free gold
than has ever been taken from a like
area in the history of the world.
The recent aJvent of George TT.
Hayes, known among mining men the
world over in connection with the
?fayes-Monn<Mte Mohawk lease at
Coldfleld, Nev.. into the Plaeerville
district in Xl Dorado county, followed
by a syndicate of San Francisco and
Sacramento capitalists who purchased
the famous Georgia Slide group of
claims, has had the effect of directing
the attention of many other investors
this way. Hayes purchased the Car
pender-Kumfa mine here and is rap
idly installing machinery to develop
and work If. The purchasers of the
Qeorgta Slide group are ,loing like
wise.—Sacramento Union.
Butte Lode Mine
The Red Dog custom mill at Johan
i nesburg has been kept bnsy lately on
ore from the new vein at the Butte lode
mine. The shaft and other workings '
have been put into shape for steady
operation. Mining is now in progress
and ore is being broken down and sent
to the mill. On the surface the 12 >
horsepower Fairbanks Morse hoist is •
now In daily operation. A part of the
present run Is made up of material dis- i
carded by former leasers. This rock is
thought to average $30 to $40 per ton.
It was thrown aside during- the last few ,
weeks of the Rice le**e. all attention
belnar devoted to jrettintr out high :
grade ore worth $100 to $200 per ton
' The average saving in Rice's last mill
j ing was about $150 per ton. In mining '■
this rich rock ■ considerable body of
medium grade ore was left -untouched j
in the shallow workings, and Pat Fahey j !
Informs the miner that February- 1. J
when his lease expired in one place he I
had blocked out not less than- 175 tons I
worth $40 per ton, all of which wan !

Oregon railroad from Amadee.
They report that the strike was made
at Fort Sage mountain, 20 miles south
east of Amadee. Cal., which would b<»
about 3'"> miles north of Reno near the
Nevada-California line.
So intense Is,the excitement as a re
sult of the report that -homesteaders
in the valley and prospectors for miles
around are rushing 1 to-the spot in or
der to secure desirable locations on the
vein, whose outcrop is seen for a long
distance. •• '

mountain,. above the timber line. The
outcropping shows down en the flat and
float has been traced from the valley to
the ledge. ' . ' i

PLEA FOR MEXICO

Labor Council Buries Request
for Aid After Debating
Liberty and Freedom
.. —. _ During the session
crfoßW^m& ct the San .Fran"
~^GS£^j£g£Sr ;:' cisco labor council
last Friday night Joseph Moore, rep
resenting the "Übpral league,' which
he ■ declared is working in the interest
of the insurrectos In Mexico. In an im
passioned speech;, about "men fighting
for liberty," appealed for moral, finan
cial ami other support In aid of a meet
ing, at which one Turner will speak
in behalf of the revolutionists^ When
he concluded a •delegate asked if th«
leaffue was the same one that had been
Indorsed by the council three weeks
before. Ha: "as informed by Moore
that It was. ■" ': '. ■.-■- ''.■'',' \\-. '*■ 'i
"Then." said the delegate, "I am op
posed to this council giving a second
indorsement to an organization that
used the language it did on Its hand
bills with the announcement that it
was indorsed by this council."
Moore was also asked who compose
the league, ana without giving any
names, stated that it Is composed of
working men and women who want
to help liberty in Mexico or anywhere
else. ' .::.,; •■'.';
"LIBERTY" DISCUSSED
This was followed by a long discus
■fon by a number of delegates, in which
"liberty," "the sacred rights of the peo
ple." -the example set by our revolu
tionary forefathers" and other spread
eagle expressions were freely used.
John Kean, deputy labor commissioner,
said:
• "I have listened. to a great deal of
talk here tonight about 'liberty' and
the 'fight for liberty' that.the revolu
tionists in Mexico are making,. but I
have read -all the dispatches ;in^ the
newspapers on this subject and all that
I have been able "" to » discover Is that
the tight In Mexico is only one between
two factions, for political supremacy.
And I want-to say. that, I agree with
President Taft in all that. he has done
in this matter, with one exception, and
that is, that he did not continue right
on and protect. the country along the
line of our canal.
. "I think ' that this ■ council has of
late taken'up, hurriedly passed on' sub
jects of all kind* and indorsed them
without a full knowledge of what they
were.. "We do not Know what this "lib
eral league' Is, • and therefor I move
that- the whole matter be /referred to
the 7 executive committee for investiga
tion."
BURIED IX COMMITTEE
r' "lf you do that," said a delegate
who favored Moore's request, "the com
mittee will not report till next Friday,
and the meeting is to be held the night
before that." "-"^HBl
Despite this protest the suggestion
that it . go to the executive body pre
vailed.: : :;
;: Frederick W. Zimmerman of the
butchers',union declared that as "every
old , resolution ■is ■; dumped .into ;;the
council, with '■s. request to Indorse It. I
move that hereafter no resolution '.not
bearing on trades unionism be) Indorsed
by this council." •
■s. One delegate said ■ that while, the
spirit of •; the motion was all right. It
,was .too sweeping, as the council often
has Ito act upon civic matters. ■
" The motion not being seconded, died
a parliamentary death.
