CALUMET AND ARIZONA The marked interest In Calumet and Arizona I at tributed lo the very flattciiu developments which have occurred during tin- past week or ten days. Reports from RI-lco in. lb.

Thl.s Is In Moved to ! the .-am" ore b.nly whiii was flr.-t opened at tt" I.JuD-t'oot bvd and was i.aln located at the 1 ::() - loot level. Tills development is reiiai'dcd as the m .-t important reported from the Calumet and Arizona for 1.1011th. At tho Iri-h Mag shaft operations were resumed at the 1,-TiO-I'oot level -e. entiy afbr hiving been disina tinued for about two yc irs. An ore body was do- io d at this lel recently, asaying 3 jut cant. The ere wan ncouiit. red in the lateral work toward the- north western j.ortlon 'of the Ciihini. t and Arizona j.r-.j., i t y and toward the Copper tue.n 1 1 act. It is believed that this ore body will develop not only richer but will prove of considerable size. HANCOCK CONSOLIDATED Sinking at No. 1' thaft of the Hancock Is pushed as rapidly as possible. This shaft has attained a depth of over 2.2..0 feet and Is making for the tjulney or le wablc INle. The ground through which the slurt is sinking duiing the past mouth or two was quite hard so that progress was not as rapid as was hoped. ' Underground de clopnie nts to ite have been v-y promising. Within the next month the crosseul beinr extended from No. l shaft to No. 2 at the eighteenth level will be completed. With this lateral 'lanfoek will have connections between its two shafts established at Jtwo i.olnts, the thirteenth level -being the lir.t con nect Ir n. The plans for handling rock are Meal, (ire chutes will bo provided and huge bins located at the 13 and IS levels. From theo points the rock will be trammed from No. 1 shaft to No. 2 nnd then hoisted to surface. The sted work for the circular rock house Is already on the ground. - The arrangement for handling the rock under ground Is not only economical but a like condition will be found on surface when tho rock Is (brought up. Tho site Tor the Hancock stainpmlll will provide a down grade for almost the entire distance between the mine and mill, decreasing rock haulage charges. It has riot been decided whether work on the Han cock stampmill will be undertaken this year. The !tc has boon purchased. It Is possible that tho company may ship to one of tho mills In this district which has a head available. This would provide some In formation which mU'ht serve well in the building of Um own plant.

KEWEENAW COPPER ' An amygdaloid I Mo, be lieved to bo -the) Koarsargo, wan encountered this week in illume. nd drilling from surface at the Kewe e naw. The vein proved to be about twemty-six feet in width and was 1 ncountcroel in a hole which had been bored over 900 feet. The lo.lo carried copper throughout Its. width in varying quan tities, but was very favorably regarded by the manage ment. In udditeni to this diamond drilling Keweenaw Is sinking a shall on the Kearsarge vein, which has at tained a depth e.f over '0 fott. When In this shaft tho vein gave great promise. Several other icofe.s hnvo been taken elsewhere en the Keweenaw proper ty in diamond drilling on the Kearsarge vein, and to-' gc the r .w ith the me.re recent results indicates the pos-d-t.ilitic which will attend future operations on this lod The management Is well satisfied with results to date. Idaniond drilling from the bottom e.f the Medora shaft toward the Calumet conglomerate Is now under way. Results from this weuic are rod expected to materialize for something over a month, as the holo will have to go about one-half mile before reaching any of. the well known veins. At the Kearsarge shaft a Miniclcnt cepilpment ;is installed to meet the de mands of cxpbiratory weak. If conditions warrant tho plant from tho Modora shaft can bo moved. l're'sldent Ch.uiex'A. Wright, etf the Ke w eeniw Cop per Co.. is quoted as stating that Keweiiiaw has fundi sufficient on hand to meet the demands of the present year, nt loat. Re states that there will 1 e no call made on shareholders this year. The Keweenaw Cent nil railroad, owned by the Ke- ' wconaw Copper Cel., should operate this year at a profit. Its summer business, promises te bivak all re. or-els. and as Its ce)ulinent is now sufficient net profits will bo rhown. SUPERIOR AND GLOBE The only lovolepiwnt work- now under way at Su perior and Olobc Is tho sinking of tho winze on the vein at the fi.'.O-foot level. This winze is ?.". feft deep. . and tho ground contains much iron but ns yet no copper has been disclosed. The management has been negotiating for consider able diamond drill work, and It Is cxpec-ted that nn , enitflt will be 011 the ground nnd ready for work early next month. m ' . Developments both on the -winze and In diamond ('rilling will be watched with much Interest for. there Is much Importance attached to this line of work. . NATIONAL MINING The crosscut southeast from the Williams shaft of tho National Mining and I'xpletrntton Co. has been ex tended C I fee.t. Since encountering the stringer of high grade carbonate ore. and for the pat lfeet, the cross cut has advaneol thre.ugh faulted ground witlnhigh Iron contents and some copper stains. The face of the crosscut yesterday trussed, into shale. SUPERIOR AND BOSTON The c.vt and west winzes being sunk from the 4lh level of the C.ardnor workings of Superior and Reiston are 125 fee t apart and are 40 nnd f.. feet deep respec tively. Roth wlnies are bottomed In ore averaging R per cent, copper. It Is estimated that the ore body already developed ut this point is sutfit lent to no et all expense- in eurre d t elate in eipenlng, up the Cardner diaft.

SUPERIOR AND PITTSBURG la vi be. me nis at the Superior and IMttburg during the: jia.-t rew weeks have- l.een extretnely imixirtant and iodb-ato lb - fact that the e-empany Jias .ased the turi'ing 1 oil 1 am th.it i'' fiMine is bright Indicl. Tho Litest important development announced indicates that the faith pinned to the Rr!::,'s .-halt was imt misplaced. Rcoiiiily in this shift an ore body assaying G per cent, copier was cm otinlered.

About Hie- first of this year uo:k was icsunicel, sinking starting from the 1,200 fo t loved. The shaft Is mm- about 1.275 feet deep. A Nation will be- cut at the l.SOO-foot level when drift ing will bo begun in the em- body which was encoun tered in the shaft sinking. Not only have- ib-ve loj tne nta at the Rrlggs shaft been of more than parsing Interest, but recent disi.uri!.s at the .Junction have like wise been of gre-at impor tune. At the Junction shaft a b'dy of ore 72 feet wide a I'd assaying 9 per cent. fOfiper has been cut. This is believed to be the same ore body flr:-t eiprnod at tho 1.20n-r..ot p ve 1 and successively at the 1,400-foot b ve 1. The c rosscut nt tho l..V0-foot level has parsed throagh the ore body and drifting la now under way. The above developments undoubtedly account for tho strenuth in Superior nnd Tittsburg in the face of the weakness of the general market.

There is an effort elise erniblo to Interest Ncrf l-.'ri-lanj peop. in tho I-st', and U nppenrs as though a deteniiined effort would bo made to put the stock higher.
