Nov. 26.—Rapid pro gress is being made In financing the Baraka Smelting A Mining Company and construction of the tret (00-ton! unit of a 1600-ton smelter wilt bo un dertaken at an early date, according1 to President F. U Torres. Purchasej of the Bureka-Nevada railroad, a' narrow gangs rail line connecting the camp with the Southern Pacific and Western Pacific trunk lines at Palisade, will be consummated about January 1. The imuuii company will acquire by purchase and exchange of stocks several important properties In Eu reka, of iv,'v Bureka-Croesus is the most pnn it. ▲ meeting of Eu reka-Croesu stockholders will he held soon (or the purpose of trans ferring this mine to the new com pany. Eureka Smelting * Mining already has purchased practically all of the outstanding stock of the Eu reka King and Eureka Peerless com panies. The Eureka King and Peer less adjoin the holdings of the Eu reka-Croesus on Prospect mountain. Reports that Eureka-Croesus stock will be exchanged for stock of the Eureka Smelting * Mining Co. at a ratio of three shares of Croesus for one share of Eureka Smelting are er roneous, states Torres, who is presi dent ot both companies. There will he no exchange at a lower rate than share for share. Shareholders who exchange their stock will be given the privilege ot purchasing an equal number of shares of treasury stock of the smelting company at fl a share. This right President Torres regards as valuable, as stockholders who take advantage of it will share in the prof its that accrue from mining, smelting and operation of the railroad. AFTER A LONG TIME The foregoing dispatch to the Ne vada Mining Press from New York indicates that plana for the rejuven ation of the great silver-lead camp of Eureka Anally are well on the way toward consummation, and that the first 600-ton unit of a large smelter will be built as quickly as possible. Many obstacles have delayed the work in Eureka, the worst of which was an adverse report on the district, made in 1021 by a mining engineer of some note, who gave It as his opinion that the orebodies were deposited by descending waters, and would not be found to extend to great depth. This report was at variance with the opinion expressed by many ge ologists and engineers, including Clarence King, who spent much time In Eureka during the big days of the camp, when twenty furnaces were in operation and Eureka ruled the lead markets of the world. King was the most eminent geologist of his time and was the first director of the Uni ted States Geological Survey. He stated without reservation that the ore was of deep seated origin, and said further to Major Catlln, engin eer for the London corporation which owned the Prospect Mountain mines, that when water level was reached rich deposits of copper would be found. King's theory about copper was partially proved by the occur rence of this metal in a deep wlnse sunk from the 400-tt. level of the Eu reka-Croesus Catlln shaft. Circulation of the Winchell report upset well laid plans tor financing the Croesus and other properties and construction of a smelter. The pro moters of the enterprise, with abid ing faith in the district, proposed that the geology and practicability of their plans be reported upon by men eminent in their profession. This was agreed to and Dr. Waldemar Lindgren was selected as geologist and F. Lynn Oarrlsson as the mining engineer. Lindgren after exhaustive examination endorsed King’s theory, stating that the ores are of deep seated origin, having been deposited by ascending waters. Garrison passed favorably upon the practicability of the enterprise, saying: “You gentle men have now a truly wonderful op portunity, the like of which will nev er happen again.” Armed with these reports, Presi dent Torres and his associates were able to finance the enterprise upon a large scale. An option was secured on the Bureka-Nevada railroad last Spring and two payments have alnce been made on the road. In July, 1111, the Eureka Smelting A Mining Co. filed articles of Incorporation un der the Nevada laws, with capital stock of 910,000,000. The new cor poration, It was stated, was to ac quire mines, purchase and operate the railroad aad build and run a ■matter. P. L. Torres, president of the Eureka-Croesus Mining Co. and chief promoter of the enlarged plan of operations, waa elected president, and George P. Hyde, secretary-treas urer of Eureka-Croesus, Is aa official of Eureka Smelting A Mining and metallurgist for the company. Tor res and Hyde both formerly held po sitions of trust with the American Smelting A Reflnlning Co., the first named In Mexico and Hyde at El Paso. A. P. Mayberry, former su perintendent of the Ruby Hill mines at Eureka for the United States Smelting Go., was appointed general superintendent of mines, and the well known firm of metallurgists, Brad ley, Bruit aad La Barthe, waa em ployed to design the smelter. The Eureka-Nevada railroad, It was realised, would be an important link In the enterprise and steps were taken to secure this property, which has been badly managed for many years. The option was secured aad payments have been made, and It Is a foregone conclusion that final pur chase will be consummated and pos session taken or or before January 6, 1*21. The road Is narrow gauge, 84 miles long exclusive of branches and side-tracks, from Eureka to Palisade. Prom the Eureka terminus a branch three miles long extends to the Ruby Hill mines. The roadbed la in poor condition and It Is considered prob able that extensive repairs wiy ^be made before heavy hauling ^Com mences. Exhaustive tests on ore treatment were made by the Eureka Smelting A Mining Co. before deciding upon smelting aa the process best adapted. Concerning this phase of the enter prise President Torres in his report says: “Some of these ores ore amenable to cyanidation and others by a com bination of flotation and cyanidation, but the fact remains that they are as a whole pre-eminently adapted to smelting. No district to my knowl edge contains to so great an extent all the requisites necessary for suc cessful and economical smelting. Iron, silica and lime are present in abundance in the ores, all of which carry gold, silver and lead.” Actual transfer of the Eureka-Ne vada railroad and assurances of fair treatment and rates alone will give a great impetus to mining throughout the Eureka district. With a smelter to treat custom ores many mines not embraced in the consolidation will be operated. The smelter will also ben efit the old camp of Hamilton, 40 miles southeast of Eureka, once one of the great silver producers of the west. Present prices of silver and lead make these mines very attractive and insure good profits from their operation. A fire started In the domestic sci ence department of the Elko County high school Saturday and threatened for a short time to destroy the build ing, hut was stopped by the Elko fire department after nominal damage had been done.

EUREKA THEATRE MAKING) IMPROVEMENTS The Eureka Theatre, under the management of Mra. D. Staten, has recently been improved under the workmanship of Mr. States, which adds materially to its attractiveness upon entering the theatre. The en tire stage has undergone a complete renovation. The open lattice work surrounding the screen has been cov ered with heavy building paper, which will shut out the cold air from the rear and make the theatre very much warmer. The screen has been repainted and made to look like new. The entire stage front is newly dec orated. Two panels in red are on either side of the drop curtain, on a background of tan colored damask paper surrounded with a finishing border. At the top above the cur tain a picture—a mountain scene— is held in place by an artistically de signed support, coming together in points of black and green colors. On either side under the panels are groups of pictures of film stars, the whole making a stage decoration pleasing to look upon and worthy of favorable comment by visiting pleas ure seekers.
