Butter, Cheese and Eggs
The egg market closed the week strong on light
receipts and brisk buying for weekend wants, the
denraad for fresh stock being more urgent than
ever. A small but urgent buying movement
under the call on tbe exchange sent prices up,
extras advancing 2c and selected pullets lc Tne
receipts reported were very licb*. owing -» T,ie
fsct that the boat with consignments from the
principal producing district had not arrived at
tho time the figures were compiled. Storage
goods were neglected and weak.
The weakness noted in the butter market fre- 1
q-ently of late finally resulted In a decline in ;
pr;e**"fo r fresh st.>ck. both extras and firsts los
ing lc Tbe market remained weak at the decline,
with sellers unable to dls-pose of any quantity to
jspr-ak of at the new quotations on the exchange.
Cheese remained steady to firm at unchanged

TLe following are official quotations, established
by sales, bids and offers on the floor of the Dairy

Potatoes'. Onions and Vegetables I
What few changes occurred in the quotations
for miscellaneous vegetables yesterday were In
the direction of higher prices, the market being
slenderly supplied with choice stock and firm.
Cucumbers, summer squash and string beans sold
[ within a narrower range of values. A good _»■
j tlou of the day's arrivals from around the bay

firmness during the early trading period. 9Bw

Deciduous and Citrus Fruits
The weekend trade in tbe wholesale fruit mar
ket was of unusually small proportions, the extra
buying for Sunday wants being niucb smaller
than receivers expected. Some of the boats and
train?, with fresh supplies, were late, and _■ a
majority of tradesmen did not remain In the _*ar
ket very long, these belated consignments bad
to be sold at low rates or held over. Black tigs
from tho river, which would probably have found
prompt sale at about $1.50 a hex If received on
time, tverp offering st $1 and less around noon.
Small boxes from Sonoma and Stockton were sud
denly plentiful and weak, with receivers willing
to accept 50c a box In tbe afternoon. White
figs were 1n much better demand than blacks,
and brought higher prices. The apple market
did not show the least improvement, and It was
the consensus of opinion in the street that price
cutting would soon he In order. The already
heavy accumulation was Increased by liberal ar
rivals from sll sections, and nearly all of the
stores were filled up with the fruit. The other
orchard fruits were weak, with the demand lim
ited St best. There was some shipping Inquiry
for table grapes in crates, but offerings were
more than sufficient for market needs, and easy
prices ruled for most varieties. Receipts of
berries were increased to more than 200 chests,
and raspberries, which were more plentiful than
the others, were weak, with the eanners bidding
$4.50 for' surplus lots. Cape Cod cranberries
were quoted higher.

Poultry and Game
There were fully three cars of western chickens 1
staudiug on the railroad tracks yesterday, and
the consignees announced that they would so on
sale tomorrow, when at least two more fall due.
There was also quite a carryover of domestic
6tock. Under these conditions the prospects are
not very bright for a firm market. The demand
for turkeys is improving right along and buyers
are looking for dressed birds, which have not
commenced to arrive In quantity as yet. Owing
to the restrictions on the sale of wild ducks, it
ls impossible to quote them accurately. Consign- j
ments that are not seized by the game wardens
have to be turned over to retailers to be sold, or
delivered to restaurants with the prices open.

Hay and Feedatuffs
Scott, Maguer A Miller, iv their weekly trade
letter, say of bay:
"Our entire receipts of hay, both alfalfa and
grain, during the last six days have only amounted
to 2,052 tons. In the last few weeks arrivals have
dropped off very Bharply. In fact, there has
not been enough coming into the market to sup
ply the current demand, and consequently tbe
stocks in the hands of both consumers and deal
ers are being rapidly reduced, both in San Fran
cisco and Oakland, and more active shipments
will necessarily have to be made shortly to re
plenish these markets.
"Prices sil along the line have been Arm on
ail offerings of good horse hay, and such con
signments during the week have been easily
placed at our full quotations, and there is a
strong demand for the best Varieties. The mar
ket is not only decidely firm at present, but has
a strong upward tendency occasioned by the
genera] situation and the known fact that our
supply in the interior warehouses is much smaller
than for many years past.
"No bay from surrounding st-tes has been
brought Into this market, although much inquiry
has been directed this way. It does not seem
I probable that tuch hay can come into California
j now. In view of the fact that during this week
j acting Governor Wallace declared a strict quar
antine prohibiting shipments of hay of any kind
from surrounding states on account of weevil.
This may cut quite a figure In our markets
I through the winter. The restriction is so exact
ing that it even prohibits tbe shipment of feed
hay in cattle cars from adjoining states Into
I California.
"There Is a better Inquiry in this market from
the Hawaiian islands, and mucb of the hay for
this desirable trade will go from California, as
tbe amount of suitable hay available for ship
ment from Puget sound for this trade Is limited.
"The market for alfalfa hay _hows some
strength, and while prices arc not anj higher
choice stock is in demand.
'•Conditions in the -traw market are absolutely
unchanged."

CALL, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20. 1912.
Mines Continue to
Show Improvement
The mines of northern California continue to- show, steady development,
and, except in a few camps where work has been suspended temporarily
because of a shortage of water for power purposes, activity is general in all
of the metal producing counties. Mining propositions of all kinds arc attract
ing attention, but interest seems to be centered chiefly in the gold producers
at the moment. Most of the big low grade ore mines scattered over the
northern mineral belt are either undergoing extensive development or are
being put into shape for exploitation in the near future. The attention paid
to low grade propositions has led to predictions that all mines of this sort
in the state will be regular producers before many years, for it has been
demonstrated that they oun be operated on a paying basis provided that the
ore reserves are large enough to warrant extensive development.
A number of interesting features figured in the news received from
various districts last week. A mill run on less than 100 tons of ore at one of
the desert mines in the southwest yielded the operators $7,000 in gold, and
the report said that there was much more ore of the same sort in sight. A
new ore find in the old Plymouth Consolidated mine has brightened the
prospects for a prosperous season in the Amador district and brought about
some active work ou other mines in the same region.
Another noteworthy feature was the completion of a big tunnel through
a portion of Globe mountain, in Trinity county. This work was undertaken
.some years ago, but for various reasons progress was slow. A new company,
organized to take over several mines in the district, carried the work to a
successful conclusion.
CALIFORNIA
Big Tunnel Completed
Globe mountain, which towers 7,010
feet above the sea level In Trinity
county, haa been punctured t by a min
ing tunnel 1,7-3 feet In length. The
tunnel Is 600 feet below the summit.
Workmen employed by the Globe Con
solidated mining company broke
through last week.
On the east side of Globe mountain
ls Stuart's Fork river and on the west
Hide of the slope flows Canyon creek.
The Chloride-Bailey mine is on the
Stuart Fork side and the Globe mine
ls on the west side of tho mountain.
For years these two mines were
worked by Independent companies, but
they are now under the same owner
ship. Jt was found that the two mines
could be worked to better advantage
by cutting a tunnel clear through the
mountain to the west side and down
the 6lope, at a distance of 6,200 feet, is
to bo erected the Globe mill.
The work of digging this long tun
nel may be said to have been begn
12 years ago, but the owners mined as
they pushed the tunnel through the
mountain and progress was slow.
Since last April all the energies of
the new owners have been bent to

"The trade in cotton was not active and fluc
tS-t-O-a were somewhat limited: The opening
was lower, Influenced by the cables, and the ac
tion of the market showed a disposition to await
further political developments and also to await
weather developments. The weakness of the Eng
lish cable was by some ascribed to the political
situation, but this was not generally considered
a factor, as consols w> re higher and the European
grain markets generally were weak. The advance
of Friday seemed to have eliminated a surface

"Lower European cables, based on fine weather
In all districts and a more liberal movement, was
followed by a corresponding poor opening on our
part. Considerable evening tip for the weekend
followed port receipts of 88.000 bags, against
07,000, and primary point deliveries of 116.000
bags, against 153,000. A fairly good .lobbing de
mand is shown, and this, it is felt, will continue
to hold the spot division steady. In futures few
care to sell short at present prices, but some are
advocating sales on the scale up. It is thought
the valorizationlsts will give support to the mar
ket If it becomes necessary."

Review of Coffee Market
The New York circular of Henry Nordlinger _
Co.. dated October 15, says:
"The receipts at Rio and Santos during the
first three months of the current crop year were
4.213,000 bags, as compared with 5.141,000 last
year and 5.265,000 two years ago.
"The daily receipts are now running In excess
of those of two years ago: In order to reach the
total of that crop—lo,soo.ooo bags for Rios
and Santos —at which we estimate fne present
crop, the dally receipts must continue to exceed
those of that year.
"Taking the average percentage of the crop
movement during the first three months of the
last 10 years as the percentage this year, will
give us about 10.500,000 bags. -
"There pre indications that the height of the
crop movement has been reached and that we will
soon see a falling off in the receipts. This
falling off will no doubt be accompanied by re
duced crop estimates, as the estimates current
about a mouth ago are not borne out by the
receipts.
"Consuming markets, especially those of Eu
rope, have been poorly supplied for some months
past and are now feeling the effect of allowing
their stocks to run down to a dangerously low
level.
"The available port stocks in Europe (where
3.448.000 bags of valorization coffee are held)
are now reduced to 2,250,000 bags, being the
direct result of the small importations by Eu
rope so far this year
"Tbe arailable port stocks In Europe and
the United States suffered a reduction of more
than 500,000 bags last mon b, despite the fact
that the withdrawals were below normal, and In
the face of an increase in the world's visible
supply during tbe same month of about 725,000
bags.
"Exports from Brazil to European ports dur
ing the first three months of this crop year
were only 1.609.000 bags, as compared with
2.257,000 last year and 2,748.000 two years ago,
while the exports to the United States were
1,327,000 bags, as compared with 1,276,000 last
year and 2,025,000 two years ago.
"On tbe other hand. Brazilian port stocks In
creased last month 460,000 bags and there was
likewise an increase in the -floats of 740,000
bags, but these larger shipments will all be badly
needed, being barely equal to one month's con
sumption. *
"The trade in general is well aware of the
fact that the current crop will not be sufficient
for the requirements of consumption, but it has
pursued a waiting policy in the expectation that
next year's crop would be a very iarge one and
that when this was once assured It would cause
prices to be lowered during the marketing of the
current crop.
"Severe frost during the early part of last
month and continued cold weather since then
have brought about an entire change In the pros
pects for next year's crop, and these prospects
appear to bo getting worse daily.
"Nevertheless the belief la still entertained
by some, and the wish ls no doubt father to the
thought, that the October flowering will prove to
be such as to give promise of a good crop."

piercing the mountain and the work
wa_ completed last week.
The Globe is 6,400 feet above the
sea level and snow hangs late in the
spring on the western side of the
mountain.
The Globe Consolidated mining com
pany has Just 1 completed shipping in
300 tons of machinery. All this was
hauled by teams from Redding over
mountain roads for a distance of 78
miles. Freight was two cents a pound,
so the company's freight bill from
Redding alone was $12,000.
Included in this shipment of ma
chinery is the equipment for a 20
stathp mill, a cyanide plant, compres
sors for operating air drills, a regrind
ing mill and a tube mill, giving a
milling capacity of 100 tons of ore a
day.
That, the Globe Consolidated mining
company is doing great things is evi
denced by the fact that It now has
100 men on the payroll and wants
more. The company ls now seeking
20 carpenters fc-r construction work
and 30 common laborers. The construc
tion of the mill and accessories will

next May, when it is hoped that the
mill will be completed and in opera
tion.
The Globe Consolidated mining com
pany has had possession of the Chlor
ide-Bailey and Globe mines for less
than a year and in that time it has
mads a big showing, as evidenced by
the large number of men employed and
the Immense amount of machinery de
livered at the great altitude of the
mines, considerably over a mile above
sea level.—Sacramento Bee.
Work in Siskiyou County
The Annie Laurie copper prosn>ect,
one mile north of"Seiad on Seiad creek,
and owned by Shepard & Phillips, is
claimed to be an extension of the Blue
Lead copper mine, located six or seven
miles distant. The owners say they
have taken out ore that assayed $35
and $60 per ton of gold and 2 per cent
copper. The copper ledge crops out
40 feet wide on the surface. They
have Just begun development work by
running a tunnel 24 feet into the moun
tain side, and will strike the ledge by
extending the tunnel 20 feet further
and at a vertical depth of 40 feet. The
| ledge runs southwest and northeast,
i and crops out 1,000 feet below the top
of the mountain.
K. D. Carey of Happy Camp has fin
ished his contract of putting in 650,000
feet of iir logs, averaging 40 inches in
diameter, at the mill of the Siskiyou
Mines company, located four miles up
Thompson creek from Nolton. The logs
were sawed as fast as delivered, and
the lumber was at once used in build
ing the flume to the company's new
hydraulic mine, 12 miles distant from
the intake on Thompson creek, four
! miles above Nolton. The mine is an
j extensive hydraulic proposition. The
1 company has operated a mine located
|on the wagon road to Happy Camp,
i just below Nolton. They recently re
moved the entire outfit to Williams
point, several miles from the old loca
i tlon, where they believe they have
rich placer grounds. The company is
about ready to begin operations.
The Dakin copper mine, located six
miles north of Happy Camp on Indian
creek, of which John Farish of New
York is the leading owner, with Fred
H. Dakin of Berkeley superintendent,
has been sufficiently developed to prove
it to be a rich mine. It has been
worked during the last five years. The
| ledge is 30 to 80 feet wide and goes to
i great depth. The ledge has been
! tapped 1,000 feet below the surface
I outcroppings, at which point satisfac
tory conditions were found to exist.
lAs little ore has been taken out as
' possible. The object has been to ascer
tain the grade and extent of the ore.
The ledge dips 30 degrees northeast.
There are eight tunnels, aggregat
ing 5.000 feet. They are located on
each side of the top of the mountain
at an altitude of several thousand feet,
reached by a two mile trail of easy
grade. The company has 200 acres.
About 10 days ago Superintendent
Dakin went to San Francisco with a
bunch of samples taken out at various
! depths. He has just returned and is
i arranging to put in a crew and operate
I the mine during the winter.—Sacra-
I mento Union.
| Midas Has Big Reserve
That the Harrison gulch territory
near Redding is coming into its own is
evidenced by the reports of men who
know the district and who are in close
touch with the situation as it applies
to the actual operations of the big
producing company, tho Midas, and the
j very promising property of the Victor
! Mining company.
It is said that the ore reserves of
the Midas were never larger or of bet
i ter grade In the famous mine's history,
and that the mill is working to capac
ity.
At a recent meeting of the Victor
! Mining company, held in Red Bluff, it
] was learned that there was a sum of
! $15,000 and over in the treasury. Pres
-1 ident J. H. Sharp has sold in the last
i year most of $4D,935 worth of stock
1 that has been purchased by Interested
investors, and $11,300 of this came in
{ during the last month.
A great deal of development work
! has been done on the Victor, which
was formerly the old Bonanza, and
whtch adjoins the Midas and the Grand
Central, the latter allied with the Vic
tor interests now.
Driving is being pushed from the
500 foot level southwesterly to inter
sect the contact ledge at about 700
feet, 400 feet having already been
driven.
During the operations of the Midas
in the vicinity of the Victor, there has
been some controversy as to whether
the Midas was working in the Victor
ledge, and surveys are being made to
determine this matter. If suit is here
after brought it will be governed
wholly by the Apex law, and while
there may be some difficulties to be
overcome, the general expectation pre
vails that they will be satisfactorily
and amicably settled.—Sacramento
Union.
•Big Desert Cleanup
A cleanup, of which the operators of
the Good Mope have all reason to be
proud, was made last Thursday at the
Red Dog mill at Johannesburg. Eighty
tons of ore from this property yielded
tbe quite respectable gold brick of
$7,000, the ore plating $88 per ton on
the average. This- is a much better
production than last month's and all
prospects point to an even better yield
next month, as the ore increases in
value with depth.
The shaft is down 300 feet at pres
ent and will be sunk CO feet further
before drifting will be undertaken.
About 10 tons have been extracted from
this mine and hoisted to the surface
in the last two days.
Work on the Twin Brothers and Gal
veston claims is being pushed ahead
systematically and it is expected that
these two mines will rival the pro
duction of the Good Hope.
It is' claimed that the erection of the
mill for the Good Hope will soon be
under way and that an air compressor
with the necessary machine drills will
be installed. The water from the
Wedge .shaft will be used In the oper
ation of the mill, which will help to
lower the running expenses of the Good
Hope. Machine drills will admit of
more rapid work in both sinking and
drifting, which will Increase the month
ly output to a marked degree. A bright
future i_ in stow) for the Good Hope.

Discovery in Amador
The prospects of Plymouth Consoli
dated, a once famous producer, have de
cidedly brightened within the last few
days. The shaft cleaning process, which
has been prosecuted with the utmost
vigor for many months, has reached
the bottom of the old works, which are
being cleaned up at this point. No ex
ploration at this depth has been done
at present. But at the south drift on
the 950 level important developments
have been made. An ore body has been
uncovered 18 feet wide. Sixteen sam
ples were taken from this ledge and
the average was said to be at the rate
of $9 per ton. This discovery is on
what is known as the Indiana claim,
which is part of the Plymouth Con
solidated holdings. A peculiar feature
of the case is that on the level below
this or.c body there Is unmistakable
evidence of an upraise having been
made some time ago. How far this de
velopment was prosecuted is not known
at present, as the drift has not been
sufficiently explored. At any rate it
shows that this big pay ledge was
known to the former management, and
why the property was shut down under
the circumstances is a mystery, There
is a rich streak in this ledge that as
says away up In the hundreds of dol
lars. Naturally the people of Ply
mouth are jubilant over the outlook.
It is only necessary to determine the
size of this ledge In length to warrant
the building of a mill, and the extrac
tion of ore to Gupply the mill's de
mands.—Amador Ledger.
Amador Notes
The Keystone shaft has been sunk to
a d«pth of 2,000 feet. This is about 600
feet below the old workings, and shows
the energy with which the work has
been prosecuted by the' present com
pany. A favorable Indication has been
noticed of late in the sinking. The
shaft has entered a soft, slaty forma
tion, which in the opinion of expert
mining men ls deemed an excellent in
dication of the' presence of ore not far
distant. The managers are increasingly
confident of the Keystone again becom
ing one of the great producers of Ama
dor county.
There Is no change of Importance to
note in the developments at the Lincoln
mine. The ore body encountered re
mains of low grade, but the manage
ment is hopeful of a change for the
better before long.
The developments at the Hardenburg
are of such an encouraging character
that the managers have decided upon
the erection of a 20 stamp mill without
delay.—Amador Ledger.
NEVADA
Consolidated Dividends
Preparations are now being made at
the offices of the Goldfleld Consolidated
Mines company to mail dividend checks
to about 10,000 stock holders of the
company, to reach all holders of the
stock on October 31.
Stock holders of the Consolidated are
scattered all over the civilized world,
with a large number in various Euro
pean countries. It has been the policy
of the Consolidated company to give
the stock holders their money as rapid
ly M St could be made from mining
operatione. This fact was - exemplified
at about the time when the company
paid its first extra dividend of 20 cents,
in addition to the regular payment of
30 cents. In reply to inquiries made by
certain eastern stock holders to officials
of the company, as to how many extra
dividends it was believed could be
paid, the eastern men were piven to
understand that there was ground for
the belief that four" extra payments
could be made without encroaching
on the treasury reserve.
Since that time 10 extra dividends
have been paid. The forthcoming pay
ment will be dividend No. 17 and will
bring the total of the company's dis
bursements to stock holders to the sum
of !_3,545,5.-.-.. a record surpassing
that made by any mining enterprise in
history. since all of this amount has
been paid within a period of five years.
The pross production of the company's
mines has been considerably in excess
of $".1,000,000. but a large part of the
Output, .luring the early period of the
camp's- life, was taken by lessees, many
of whom became rich In the short

Production Still Heavy
An Interesting feature of Superin
tendent Thorn's report of production
and earnings of the Consolidated Mines
company for the month of August,
which has just been issued, is the fact
that, in spite of the work of -inking
the Grizzly Bear shaft and cutting thn
new station, the company shipped t<»
the smelter in Utah 2,208 tons of ore
from the deep workings of the Grlzzly
Bear and Clermont.
In point of tonnage the production
In August was near the top record of
the company's history, the total out
put being 32,538 tons, and the aver
age treated by the company's mill
was but little less than 1,000 A>n
daily, the highest record yet attained.
Net profits for the month were low, ow
ing to the low average grade of the
product mined. The report of the su
perintendent says in part:
During the month of August, lit 2,
the total production was 32,533 tons,
containing $465,289.07, or an average of
$14.30 per ton, of which 30,330 tons
were milled with an average extrac
tion of 89.31 per cent and 2,208 tons
were shipped of an average value of
$15.26 per ton, the net recovery from
all ore being $12.88 per ton. The total
net realization was $223,580.71, or $6.87
per ton. —Goldfleld Tribune.
Inspect Hamilton Mine
Clarence Bamberger of Salt Lake
and E. C. Talbot of Park City, both
mining engineers, were arrivals last
evening on their way to Hamilton to
make an inspection of the Ne Plus
Ultra mines, for which place they left
today. They plan to spend at least.
one "day at the mines.
Talbot made an examination of the.
property about a year ago and recom
mended certain work to be done. HU
advice was followed, with the result
that the largest body of ore ever found
in Ne Plus Ultra ground was Opened
up and a great deal of ore was ex
tracted. The ore was packed and piled
in the drifts in the mine in expecta
tion of making shipments when th".
Eureka and Palisade road was recon
structed. The -ates offered by tha*
road, however, were much higher than
those in effect before the washout.
Now, it is said, the company owning
tbe Ne Plus Ultra, the Y\ hite Pine
Lead company, is now considering the
feasibility of shipping by way of Ely
over the Nevada Northern to Salt
Lake. —Ely Expositor.
Progress at National
The mine development and increased
ore showings continue in very potent
sense on the two main properties at
National. The National mines em
ploys in this general work 60 men and
the Charleston Hill Syndicate 25 men.
The National mines is extracting high
grade ore from the undisputed section,
and the Charleston Hill Syndicate la
following its contentions and working
along Cue fault line. In other word*,
the syndicate people are drifting on th-%
fault. The work shows that the string
ers of quartz are all cut off by the
fault or penetrate no farther than the
hanging, showing that the hanging
slid downward and caused the dis
placement, as one of the litigants as
serts. In fact, the contention is that
all development by the syndicate veri
fies the contention of Professor Law
son as to his view of the Charleston
Hill faulting and the general move
ment which disrupted the normal
structure of that rich gold mountain.
The Workman interests hay* let a.
number of leases on Auto hill. Th"
substance is that neither litigation
pessimists can keep National back. It
has a future, one rich and prosperous.
