Alarm Placed by Chief Voetch
"Dead Man't Curve."
An alarm bell was placed Saturday
by I.oi.-s Voctsch at the intersection
of sh en and IVanklin streets and
College avenue, to be rung when tiro
alarms are turned In from Kast
Houghton. There Is always consider
able congestion of t rattle at this point
of automobile's and ve hicles and as It
is Impossible to si'O approaching ve
hicles until the y have le-a -bed the
curve, it Is a point of considerable
danger. The gong is to bo set ringing
by the touching of a button in the
fire station, whenever a fire alarm Is
.sent in fn in liest Houghton, warning
drivers of teams and autos that the
firemen are coining, and to give them
a (bar road. Chief Voctsch desires
to impress upon drivers the need of
obeying the alarm Immediately and
thereby averting possible accidents.

The market this week has been drifting along In
somewhat Btupld manner, and until latterly with cvl
tUnce of a desire to rally, ami while some Improvement
was made in prices, towards the closo of the week furthc
t.ejlling developed in Union Pacific, which, of course wi
tho signal for weakness elsewhere, und as we write t
;Ht lookj very Male and flat.
Of new a to account for the late pressia-p, there is nno
and In this respect tho market Is without nn explanation
much as it has been on tho previous heavy decllno.
Probably, the larger feature of interest liaa been to
dny's government crop report, which docs not show
very pleasing collection ef figures, for while there la some
Improvement In the corn nnd oats crop, there Is none
n Fprln;r wheat, which together with winter wheat In
tlicates .1 total yield ef only about 658.000,000, while that
extremely useful crop, hiy, is reduced to less than 47
C'00,000 a against over 60,000,000 last year.
la trade, there seems to be a note of improvement in
one or two directions evidenced further by a substantial
Increase !n the August bank clearing. The labor dls
rules out West however have had a halting Influence, al
though we doubt for obvious reasonB, the likelihood of
strikes in that direction.
Wo are not, however, pessimistic on security values
We believe the late selling to be! largely for the? already
over-extended short account, nnd wo would prefer to meet
this devllne with purchases rather than following the
present very fashionable side of the market. 'N. J. Mllle

The announcement of tho Copper Producer's figures
yesterday furnished a pleasant surprise In the curtail
nunt of approximately four nnd a quarter million pounds,
whereas a negative rsult would have been considered
very satisfactory.
Production of most of the mines owing to n very full
month from the working day standpoint and to better re
covcry from ore treated as well as from the Increasing
volume from the new perphyr!es contributed to make
higher output all along the lino.
That , this was so easily taken care of was due to the
tcsumptlon of foreign demand in tho latter pnrt of the
month, whereas It had been slack in the first half nnd
from the fact that the small American consumers were In
tho market for nn unusually large supply of red metal
throughout tho month. The big consumers laid hack on
their oars during tho entire period, w'hlch led to a rather
icsslmlstld outlook In the tlrst half of the month.
Tlie present state of affairs however, leads to the con
elusion so often stated nnd much persevered in that the
copper situation has turned the corner nnd It now seems
that production Is at length being slowly nnd rdcndlly
verconio bv consumption to nn extent that will take
enro of all present and premised production for tho cur
rent year. If t'.io enlargement of consumption to pro
ductlon continues during next year we should see a still
more promising stato of affairs. That tho copper sltua
tion has gone on steadily bettering with general trnd In
iti present condition, and with tho foreign situation caus
Ing u 11ms t throughout Europe la certainly ns good a tes
timonlal as could be desired. The steady drain upon
mine s of the eountrv nnd tho steady nslnir of copper ns it
produced can in the end produce only one effect no mat
lev nt what level copper Is now selling for, nor how long
it may continue. J. II. Cody of Miller & Co.
Only those who have had the opportunity of visiting
the Olobo camp and Inspecting the properties of the Su
icrlor & Jloston nnd Arizona-Commercial companies can
ealize the great advantago which will accrue ns a result
of the proposed consolidation of these two companies,
Tho announcement of tho terms whereby Superior &
P.oston would absorb Arizona Commercial was made this
week nnd viewed Irom every angle, it Is an eminently fa
vcrablo bafcls. Superior & Hoston will Increase lis capl
taxation to C5O.O00 shares, of which all but 5,000, share
v. ill be outstanding. A special meeting of Superior &
Hoston isharoholdcrs Is called for September 30th for the
purpose of voting on tho plan, and transfer books vv'll
be closed September 2.rth nnd vjll re-open Octfiber 2d
According to the terms whereby the two properties are
to bo consolidated, Superior & Hoston will Issue 200,000
shares to be exchanged for $1,000,000 bonds now out
standing of Arizona Commercial on a basis of 100 shari
of Superior & Hoston for each $500 bond, providing 75
f.f the bondholders accept tho offer.
An Issue of $000,000, nix per cent, bonds convertible
al $5 will also be made in denominations of $100, $r,00 and
$1000 to bo dated November 1, 1911, und payable In ten
years. These bonds can be converted into stock between
November 1, 1912 nnd November 1, 1910 nt $3 a idiare,
nd are t bo redeemable nt 110. To provide for this
redemption, 120,000 shares of Superior & Hoston stock
will be set aside. Subscription to these bonds are open
nly to Arizona Ceunmerclal shareholders, and with each
subscription of $100, a bonus of 20 shares of Superior &
P.oston slock will be given. This will call for an Issue of
CO.OOO shaies of Superior & Hoston stock. This bond Issue
has been fully underwritten. To recapitulate, the stock
Issue will be ns follows:
Superior & Hoston shares now Issued. .28.1,000
For Arizona Commercial bonds 200,000
To convert new bond Issue 120,000
For Arizona Commercial subscription
bonds f.0,000
In treasury 0,000
Total Capital G.'.O.OOO
With the consummation of the proposed consolidation
of the twe companies, Superior & Hoston will have In Its
treasury In excess of $(500,000, a property fully paid for
nd in addition, a smelter nnd railroad. It will be able
to operate at five different points, namely: the McOaw,
Oardner nnd Limestone of Superior j Boston's present
holdings, and tho Rurcka and Copper Hill properties of
Arizona Commercial. With so large a treasury balance,
more aggressive operations will bo possible, nnd tho early
sumption of production on a considerable scale.
There was considerable selling tt both Arizona Com-
merclal nnd Superior & Hoston stock Immediately upon
the publication of the terms of tho proposed consolida
tion. Tin selling of Superior A Hoston is believed to
hnvo ber-n for the account of Arizona Comme-rclal bond
holders who sold the stock against the shares they will
,w v "U'"",! Ui i"ir uonu holdings for Su.
perlor & HoBton stock.
Thero will be an Increase in ;he directorate of Superior
& Hoston from five to nine members. Arizona Cummer
clal Interests will be represented by four members or!
the Hoard, including N. L. Amster.
Operations at Arizona Commercial have been dicon.
tinued, pending the consummation of the proposed con,
solldatlon. The pumps are being operated, and the mine
kept freo from water.
It Is our opinion that after the deal Is closed. Superior
A Hoston shares will sell considerably higher, and we be.
lieve the stock offers great speculative possibilities around
present prices.
New Haltlo was quite strong this week on the report
of a very favorable condition existing In the develop,
nicnts on the West hide. Drifting has been under way
for some time past and so far the results have been wry

The shaft being sunk by the Keweenaw Copper Com
pany on tho Kearsarge lode has reached n depth of over
1200 fe-et. The shaft Is now partly In tho lode and at
121 fi feet the vein showed ui some good copper. The
footwall has shown In tho shaft In a number of cases,
tut it Is believed that the mineralization which has Just
pnpeinred Is greater than heretofore exposed.
The- management has not yet decided whether drifting
will be done at once, but It is not at all unlikely that Dm
vein will soon be explored. The shaft will be continued tr

No. 9 diamond drill hole is being bored by Old Colony.
This lude Is now over 400 feet deep. It Is thought likely
that It will penctrnto tho horizon of the St. Louis vein
between 500 and COO fet.
Mayflower Is boring hole No. 15 which is close to 1300
feet In depth. Two promising veins were cut In this hole,
one in particular showing up rich In copper. It Is quite
possible tho company may decide to sink a shaft before
v Inter arrives. In this event tho company would find
lc necessary to call on shareholders for further treasury
Al a special meeting of South Hecla stockholders hell
this week, It was voted to sell the property for 120,000
shares of the new company, which Is now in process of
organization. As there nre outstanding 240,000 shares of
South Hecla, this will give present shareholders one
share of the new Company's stock for each two shares
of South Hecla they now hold.
The new Company which is being organized will have
a capitalization of 1,000,000 shares of a par valuo of $5
a dhare. 700,000 shares will be exchanged for properties.
In addition there will be a bond Issue of $1,000,000, of
which $500,000 will bo sold at par and the proceeds will
lid placed In tho Company's treasury for development
work. The remaining bonds will bo lield in tho treasury
to be seild as funds are required.
Among tho companies to be Included In tho new or
ganization are the City Rocks, Grizzly, South Hecla, Alta
Development. Flagstaff, Centennial Emma, Nina & Myr
tha. Copper Prince and Superior Alta. These properties
cover over 1800 acres, and are in the heart of the Little
Cottonwood district. Several other properties are like
ly to be included In the deal, among them being Columbus
Consolidated and Columbus Extension. Messrs. J. P.
Edwards and N. W. Halro are working on thla deal, and
It Is hoped to have the official announcement in tho
course of the next few weeks.
The advance In Tonopah to" $6 tills week caused con-
Mdcrable comment, and as yet there has been no satis
factory reason advanced for the upwurd movement. From
private Bourcca, however, we learn that during the past
few weeks developments nt tho mine have been very
satisfactory. The Company has opened up some very
promising ore bodies, nnd reserves, we are given to un
derstand, nre greater now than they have been the hut
two years. Production continues at the normul rate, and
fho Company is earning a trifle better than fifty cents
every three months. Thero was some talk of an ln
ceaseel dividend, but this is not at all likely.
It was reported this week that Tonopah had exercised
Its option on one of the properties which It had been
considering for some months past, and-the acquisition
of this property can be regarded as a very bullish point.
Tho new property while not a high grade one will pro.
vldo Tonopah with oro which can bo milled at a profit,
am! will serve to prolong the life of tho Compuny for
many years.
Thero was good buying of the stock on tho upward
movement and offerings have been comparatively light.
Anywhere around $6 a share. Tononah looks to be a,
