SATUBDAY, AUGUST 22. . . .1903 KEVIVAL OF PIOCII13. Activity Inspired by the Build ing of Salt Lake Itoad. From 1871 to 1876 the Pioche dis trict, io Lincoln county, Nevada, was a rich producer of silver and lead under disadvantageous conditions, the nearest railroad point at that time being Salt Lake City, over 200 miles from the camp, says the Mining Reporter of Denver. The first diffi culties encountered were in 1876, when the water level was struck and the ores turned to sulphides, and ex pensive pumping was required. The milling methods which followed were not successful, and by 1880 the work in the district had virtually ceased. This condition of inactivity continued practically until the present time. Many, of the old mines have recently been brought under the ownership of the Pioche Consolidated Mining and Milling company, controlled by H. B. Clafiin & Co., of New York. They comprise the Raymond and Ely, Meadow Valley and Yuba at Pioche, and the Day mine aud Onandago at Royal City, sixteen miles west of Pi oche. All these were producers of silver, lead and gold, and are now reputed to be capable of large pro duction. The company above named gave an option on the property within the last few months to a syn dicate represented by C. O. Whitte more of Salt Lake City, and, in the meantime, the groups named have been under thorough examination by C. E. Palmer, of Denver. Should the option be taken up by this syndi cate, it is probable that a branch railroad will be built from Caiieutes to Pioche. Operations in Pioche dis trict will involve concentration and smelting. The old smelter, which is included in the deal, is suid to be of considerable value. This is one of the signs of activity in that section as a result of the aggressive work of the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad company. DISCUSSES TONOPAH. A Philadelphia Alining Man Un bosoms Himself. "The new camp of Tonopah pro duced over $7,000,000 in the first eight months of her existence. It took Cripple Creek five years to pro duce $8,000,000. , We have the rich est'mine in the world. The Mizpah was only discovered two years ago, and they already have over $85,000, 000 in sight. The Belmont, adjoin ing this, is only a year old, but they are not far behind, and it looks now as though it would even surpass the Mizpah, Compare this with the showing q the Independence at Crip ple Creek. This was thought to be the richest mine in the world, but it never had over $15,000,000 in sight at one time, and has never taken out anywhere near $35,000,000, the amount now in sight in the Mizpah." This is the remarkable statement made by Mr. H. Weber, a prominent mining man of Pennsylvania, who is stopping a few days on his return from the Tonopah gold fields. Mr. Weber has examined pvery mining section of North America, from Alas ka to Mexico, in his capacity as min ing engineer aud as the representa tive of several eastern corporations. And Tonopah, he says, is the richest gold field he ever met with. Rocky Mountain News. Will Wear a Shoestring. Lieutenant-Governor Allen was yesterday approached by Promoter Schuman of Bowers mansion and asked to make an address of welcome at the Eagles' picnic next Sunday. He complied with the request, but when asked to wear a necktie at the function he said that is something that he really couldn't do. Lem stated that it was twelve years since he had been guilty of such an unpro fessional act, but in deference to the order that recently received him into membership he promised to wear a shnpstrinir around his neck.

Some Comments Expressed by Outside Newspapers. A murder was committed in Tono pah recently, and the deed was de scribed as a cold blooded affair. The Belmont justice of the peace held the murderer in $2000 bail. A man in Ormsby county got drunk and stole two dollars' worth of second-hand towels and an alarm clock. His bail was fixed at $1500. If the Ormsby transaction may be taken as a fair basis, the Belmont justice rates mur der as a $2.66 crime. Carson News. Frank Smith, the slayer of Walter Dunn, at Tonopah, was given his pre liminary examination at Belmont last week. The learned justice who sat in the case concluded that it was a case of manslaughter, and held Smith to answer to that charge, with bail fixed at $2000. If the facts of the killing were accurately reported in the Tonopah papers, this is another of those shameful incidents which bring courts into contempt. It is now safe to say that the next mur derer in peaceful Tonopah will get hanged. Inyo Register. Jones Hits It Again. A dispatch from Washington says that former Senator John P.Jones of Nevada, who has been spending much time in Washington and New York since his retirement, is greatly elated over information just received from Mexico that he, together with John K. Cowan, former president of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, and Eugene Davis of this city, has secur ed the property known as the Capu saya group of mines immediately ad joining the famous mine of Pedro Alvardo, near the city of Paral, Chi huahua, Mexico, which is said to be the richest silver mine in the world. Alvardo caused considerable interest in the financial world recently by an offer to pay $50,000,000 of the Mexi can . national debt. Senator Jones has declared to intimate friends that he is assured of enjoying another bo nanza equal to the Comstock lode, It is understood that Senator Jones and his associates paid something less than $2,500,000 for the property. A Unique Advertisement. An Atchison, Kan., merchant re cently worked off the following unique "white goods' V advertisement on the ladies of his town: "One of these nights a mouse will knaw a match on your pantry shelf, dear sister, and the fire will spread till it reaches your room, and you will escape with your life, clad only in your night gar ments. Such a spectacular oppor tuity to create a sensation doesn'' occur of toner than once in a lifetime and, how will you meet it? Dear sister, will your night clothes be such that the firemen will want to plunge into the flames and die, or will you look like the picture on the bill board?" The Dip of the Vein. The right to follow the ore or vein is limited by the end line, but under ordinary conditions the vein may be followed downward, on its dip, to in definite depth. This is the universal riirht in all of the mining regions of the United States, where the mineral lands were Originally on the public domain, except at Leadville, Colo., where, owing to the form of the min eral deposits, the extralateral right is not recognized, as no jury has yet been impanelled in that district which would admit that the ore de posits were lodes, and the right to follow them on their dip was conse quently denied. Taking Too Much Water. Miller S .Lux served papers on four of the largest ditch companies in this valley this week, notifying them to appear in court at Carson next Monday and show cause why they should not be enjoined from tak ing a certain amount of water out of Walker river. Yerington Times. The Mining and Scientific Press of San Francisco' remarks that if mm ing prospectuses were to state all the truth about even good mines there would be far less mining done than there is at present. No mine is perfect, but the promoter would not mention this fact, much less accen tuate it. The Bonanza Candy Kitchen re ceives fresh candies twice a week. The vontrol of the Portland Gold Mining company of Cripple Creek baa passed into the hands of New York people, who have secured pos session of sixty-three and one-third percent, of the stock issued. Of the balance of the stock the Stratton estate owns over eighteen per cent.
