The n»ua! extra buying for weekend- wants
enlivened the market for vegetables: yesterday,
but otherwise the general sltnatlon showed no
change from the few preceding days. The in
creased trading had no appreciable effect on

boost price*. Green corn was weak on the day
and quite a surplus had to. b«: held over.
Prices were firm for a short time ,ii the morn
ln« owing to the late arrival* of fre*h supplies,
hut the market weakened early in the forenoon.
Tomatoes, too. were weak, with receiver* will
ing to make conceslon* rather than carry stock*
over. Potatoes were firm, while onion* dragged

Hay and Feedstuff*
Considerable hay was bought In the conatry
last week at higher prices than are quoted in
this market. Yesterday's receipts were large.
being 1.003 tons. Scott. 'lagner & Miller say
of the market:
"Becetpt* of hay on the San Francisco mar
ket have sharply Increased during the la»t
week, the amount totaling 3.700 ton*. Arrival*
by railroad were larger than heretofore, and
during the last six days quite a fleet of boats
carrying hay have arrived. Quite a little of the
hay coming by boat has been alfalfa. •
' ""While the general trend of our market lias
been stronger there has been no definite ad
vance* In prices, although" there Is a firmer
fueling generally covering the entire situation
both In the city and in the country. -
"The - demand here lln the city for hay has
not Improved to any noticeable extent as the
summer activity does usually at this time of
the yea but the season I* holding off very late
this year, and active buytm on the part of the
consumers ha* not yet begun. ■■ ■
"In several of the large hay districts there
ha* been baying this week and quite a few lots
have changed hands both for storage purposes
and for current trade.
• •There ha« beer, very little hay sent out of
th» harbor recently on export or on coastwise
shipments and it is not expected that there will
be any particular activity in this line In tbe
early future.
"Tiiere has been some alfalfa hay moving
Into market, although the demand for tills arti
cle at present is rather moderate. No larce
buying has been done, , the operations being
mainly confined to small purchases for- Immedi
ate requirement*, and the market can not be
said to be as yet well established for the usual
summer trade. ■ -BBSpsteßSf: - ■

.MISCELLANEOUS MARKETS
Cotton Market
F. F. Hutton A Co.'a wire say*:
NEW YORK. July 22. Tbe favorable weather
of the past week has brought about drastic and
continued declines in the cotton market, the
■ leaders on the long side having entirely aban
. doned their position. The technical situation
has been strengthened by the elimination of
stop order* and the selling of weak holders.
The short Interest has also Increased materially.
j The weak point ln the technical situation is
there are still a number of scattered long ac
counts which . show severe losses and which
might come on the market at any tin: The
technical altnatlra alone la not powerful enough
to bring about any very. extensive rallies un
der present , condition*.: and unless crop proft
pects change, recoveries will be limited a couple
of dollars a bale almost. There are still a
few penile , who ■ believe la - materially lower
price*. However, the fact remain* that . tbe
bumper crop of 1904 gave ns a low price of
6.39 c; the big crop lof ; 1906. a,' low price of
8.58 c, snd the big crop of 1908. I low price of
8.35 c. There Is no doS%s. that commodity price*
! are , advancing and that the - normal ' level I*
higher from ear to year but this change in
bas-c value is a matter of alow evolution, not of
Immediate. revolution. It would be very nice
-to make a 14.000,000 or 515.000,000 crop ':- and
market It at 14" or 15c. but that would be an
entirely unnatural hypothesis; it would conflict
with all the laws of supply, and demand.
Spot cotton closed quiet. 10 points higher.*

BIG DEALS IN MINING PROPERTIES
IN DISTRICTS OF PACIFIC COAST
Sales of Extensive Holdings in Northern California and Reports of
Bonding of Several Groups of Promising Claims in Alaska
. Several deals in mining properties were reported last week. One. was the acquisition by the Placerville Gold
Mining^company of the extensive holdings of the El Dorado Water and Deep Gravel Mining company at a price
between $500,000 and $1,000,000.1 The holdings embrace 41 distinct mining groups, in addition to considerable real
estate, water rights, etc. : -
Another deal was the purchase of the Aha mine, in the Grass Valley district, the consideration not being given.
The mine has been a steady producer of gold since it was first opened about' 30 years ago.
Some large bondings in Alaska are reported. One is that of more than 50 claims in the McKinley Lake district
by the Morgan-Guggenheim syndicate for a figure in excess .0%5200,000. Another is the bonding of property
adjoining the above by the London Exploration company for $500,000. '
There is no slackening in the mining industry anywhere on the Pacific coast. From Alaska to Mexico the
mines" are being briskly operated and outside capital seeking investment in mines is flowing in from the east and
Europe in a steady stream.
CALIFORNIA \
Amador Mines
South Jackson-Actual development
work was started at the South' Jack
son Gold Mining company's grounds
ln South Jackson on Monday morning
last and will be prosecuted as fast
as possible under the limited, facilities
at hand for opening the shaft. A wind
lass has been erected and will be used
until the machinery, consisting of gaso
line engine, drills, etc, which have been
contracted for. is installed. Several
men have been engaged, all said to be
thorough quartz miners. The company
has more than 70 acres ln which to
work, comprising over three full min
ing claims.
The shaft will be perpendicular and
three compartments 4 by 5 in the clear
ance. Sufficient.timbers have been or
dered to complete the construction of
the shaft to the depth of 1.000 feet
The gasoline engine, which is ordered.
will be able to handle all the work
required to this depth.
Central Eureka—lt te reported that
the outlook for this mine Is improv
ing. The last monthly cleanup, accord
ing to : current report realized'about
$7,000 over and above operating ex
penses. The company Is nearly out of
debt and the prospects are encourag
ing for the inauguration of dividends.
The company has bought a piece of
ground lying to the west, the title to
which is being quieted by a suit in
the superior court. ,'-*mPpm*
South Amador consolidated min
ing properties, known as the South
Amador, formerly the Amador Queen,
Doyle and others, comprising more than
100 acres of mineral land, are under
going repairs and will be put in work
ing order in the near future. Near
the present site of the old Amador
Queen.'grading is underway for a site
upon which will be built a compressor
room and a transformer house. The
transformers and other electrical ap
pliances to be used in operating the
claims have been ordered. —

Aita Mine Brought
A mining deal was consummated yes
terday evening which will mean a great
deal to Grass Valley and which In
volves a claim which has produced
$150,000 since it was first opened up
30 years ago. The purchaser is O. Scrib
ner of San * Francisco, a wealthy oil
operator, who has faith In the- Grass
Valley district The claim Is the Alta
gravel mine, owned by former Mayor
L Haas and I. Stein of San Francisco.
i The property was not disposed of un
der bond, but was purchased outright
by Scribner. which means that he will
develop the mine on a scale commen
surate with its Importance and value.
It means a great deal for the Rough
and Ready mining district. In which
the Alta is located. * It adjoins the
Holbrooke on one side and la adja
cent also to , the Picayune claim. In
spite of the crude methods that have
been adopted in working it the huge
sum of $150,000 In gold has been taken
out. • Short i tunnels : and shafts have
been the method of working it up 'to
this time, but now a systematic plan
will be adopted In developing It.,' •
The channel In the Alta mine is sup
posed to be a . continuation of the old
Alta channel, •. from. which thousands
upon thousands of dollars have been
taken. The people who have owned
It heretofore have never had the means
to go deep enough to work it in the
proper,war. If the contention of Haas.
Grant and other -men who - have had
long experlene»~in mining Is correct,
the. Alta should produce for Scribner
many thousands in gold. The chan
nel Is known to run through that dis
trict, and if the Alta should be so
fortunate as to include it within Its
confines the fortune of th* owner la
assured.—Nevada City Transcript.
Sovereign Mine
Development work at the Sovereign
quartz property in Ladles' canyon,
near Downleviile, has demonstrated
that the mine is ready for reduction
machinery. This has been ordered
from Sacramento and will be shipped
not later than July 20.
The development of the mine has so
far proved that the pay chute is at
least 100 feet in length with neither
the north or south .end being reached
as yet. A drift run north more than
50 feet shows good ore all the way as
well as In the face, while a drift run
south about, the . same distance shows
extra good values,
A raise has been started and at 22
feet the face is In the finest kind of
ore. The ledge ranges from seven to
nine feet wide with- all the quartz as
saying well. There is a streak on the
hanging wall that goes better than $70
to the ton. The ore Is not what is
known as picture or specimen rock,
there being litis free gold in sight The
values lie mostly. In the galena sulphu
rets that are sprinkled liberally from
wall to wall. The Sovereign la owned
by a close corporation of Monterey
men.—Nevada City Tranaeript. >
Big Deal in El Dorado
The extensive holdings of the El De
rado Water and Deep Gravel Mining
company have passed into the hands of
the Placerville Gold Mining company.
While- considerable secrecy has been
maintained by the Interested parties, It
is understood that the price Involved
approaches $1,000,000 and that the
members of . the: new, corporation in
clude several prominent San Francisco
and Southern California capitalists.
. The ; holdings - embrace : 41 distinct
mining groups, in addition to consider
able real estate,' water rights, etc.
Among the mines is the noted Excel
sior gravel i property and the important
Pacific quarts mine. All of the mines
are located at or near Placerville." The
Pacific Is one of the leading gold mines
of: the county, and has recently come
to the front as a result of important
development* in : the lower levels. The
property is equipped with a milling
plant and employs about 60 men.: The
Excelsior has been a consistent pro
ducer for years.
It Is said .that the new, owners plan
the development of the leading proper
ties along . broader lines, while much
attention will he given to the explora
tion of the smaller claims. Several: of
the : quarts mines are - located -on the
mother lode gold quarts zone, and with
depth are expected to prove heavy pro
ducers. A. Baring-Gould will continue
to - manage the properties' for the new
syndicate.— Angeles Times. ;: :>■ ;-,:

Developments under ground will also
be conducted .along broader-lines.
The Plumas Eureka * was one of :the
earliest gold mines to be developed in
this state and for a long term of years
proved a ; remarkable producer. Vari
ous estimates place the total produc
tion at $12,000,000 to $17,000,000, while
the official records show a total of
$2,833,400 disbursed In dividends. Prac
tically all this Immense value came
from workings near the surface. 'The
veins are large, carry free milling
values and yield readily to treatment.
The property Is worked via adits, thus
having an advantage where costly
pumping and hoisting machinery is re

Trinity Activity
- The present year promises to be one i
of the most active in the mining his- I
tory of old Trinity county, and the In
flux of new capital to this region will
be greater. in proportion to our area,
than to any mineral county- on ' the
coast with the possible exception of
Shasta, whose * copper deposits attract
the world's mineralogists. -
Within a few miles of Weaverville,
the county seat of Trinity county, the
famous La Grange mine, noted. because
It is the largest placer mine in the |
world, worked by giant monitors and j
owned principally by French capital, is
cutting down mountains and each year i
a sum estimated as averaging $200,000 !
Is taken from the sluices. The.quartz i
mines of Trinity are also being actively
worked. The most encouraging activity
during the year is the installation .of
mill and cyanide plants at the Head
light mine in the Carryville section,
the monthly output averaging $15,000.
The Headlight was sampled extensively
by four or five prospective bonders: :
one, ' the Mammoth copper company of
Kennett Shasta county, taking, it is,
said, 6,000 samples, from which numer
ous assays were made. But finally the
present company was satisfied with the
great showing from an Immense body
of ore and it Is reaping the reward of
practical testing, foresight and pluck.

Center, laid for years there, the .buck- '
ets having buckled up under operation. :
This result has now been proved to be
not the fault of the ground, but rather
of the dredge. . .^aiKegKPflgHPHgSa'
Recently the Union construction j
company of San Francisco, in conjunc- !
tion with G. W. Payne, has taken over, ;
the | Payne ranch and also taken j op- I
tions on adjoining properties; and has
signed with the Northern California
power. company for I power- connections.
It la proposed to dismantle -. the seven
foot bucket dredge built by the Yuba
construction company, and which oper- |
ated for a season at Callahan*, In Sis- j
kiyou county, for rebuilding on the '
Trinity Center ground. : The cost •of
this work will exceed $20,090, an-' It is
not likely the.boat will be ready for
operation this year.
Discover Picture Rock —ln ."'.' the j
Mlnersvllle country work Is proceeding
on another bucket dredging "proposi

landed at Redding, from New York.
From the general trend of Inquiries the
Yellow Jacket;section .of the South
Fork and vicinity of Trinity river will
be invaded more than any other quarts
or ledge section, and this Is accounted
for -by ' two very * good reasons
finding in recent years of rich : tellur

Good Ore on Town Lot
Specimens that would do credit - to
one of the best mines in the district
have been taken from a proposed shaft
In the Grass Valley lot ownefi by .Wil
liam Thomas Sr. - and worked by his
two sons. The young, men are • em
ployed at Taylor's foundry, and* they
brought some of the ore there to show
to their fellow workmen. It was of
such quality and beauty'that It caused
the men :ther« to open their-eyes In
amazement. There was none of the
appearance of surface rock. It was
good looking quartz ore that Is highly
mineralized, and free gold could be
seen sticking out all over It - If it had
been taken from one of the mines that
had been operated for; a : number . of
years It would have given new life and
hope to the management :^Ooag)gam&
The shaft is down a* depth of more
than 50 or 60 feet, which is the depth
of many of the wells of this district

and then struck what appears to be a ;
well defined ledge that promises to .
pay well. , The Thomas ; lot is quite j
large and adjoins the Peabody on the j
one ; side and the Gold * Hill .on : the
other. From. all over that hill rich ore
has been taken In the early days of
the camp, and some of the ledges have
proved to be unusually rich. .* The

site. It is situated on the south side
of Jefferson canyon, five miles east of
Smoky valley and 20 miles north" of
Manhattan, and at an elevation of 7,500
to 9,ooo,feet. He declares the property
has been worked for 33 years by One
man, taking out and shipping all high
grade ore. placing the remainder» in
dumps convenient for millwork later.
These dumps will aggregate 100,000
tons of $10 ore. The values are 2 4-o
silver and the remainder gold.
There are three north-south parallel
veins within 600 feet, one cutting 2.500
feet through the porphyry, varying In
width from 3 to 12 feet carrying from
$3.t0 116 a ton. i The other two great
veins resemble this.* but are traced
through the property for 7,500 feet, one
being 4 to $0 feet wide, showing values
of $8 to $60 a: ton. The footwall Is
granite, the hanging wall metamorphlc
