Gossip of Market and Mines by Minnear & Co.
The coer situation Is very much depressed we in

limited tonnage hooked at this hguie. Then is pracil

that manufacturers in some Instances uro even re

gether with a slowing up in business are the euntrlbuiln 2
factors for this action.
Owing to th custom of trading in cojer warrant In
the ljondon market, it is v.iy hard to Judge Jnt what sig
rlllcanci to attach to the spasmodic changes In the metal
market abroad. It may mean that manufacturers abroad
are anticiailng their wants by buying futures, oi it could
be possible that the buying is coming mosily from sieo
There was a material Im lease in tho exrls the ast
week; a total of X,3t;7 I'-ns was extorted, as oni.aied with

same average as during the month of October.

According to o;io very ch.se to the mine operators of
this district, !t I possible that unless there is a big in
crease in the number of former employees rfturnimr to
work nt the ptines in the northern end of the district. In
eluding Mohawk, Ahmeek, Allou.". North Keararge and
Wolverine, the managements will decide t i close some, if
not all of these nronerties for tho winter. While it is true
that bunk houses have been built at sun,' of the properties
to house imported men. to date but few have been re
ciived. Tin managements are very reticent in regards. u
whether or not they will Import men In opeiale these
liropertles in the north end.
There Is a. geqer.il impression locally that an attempt
will be made to work the, mines by imported workmen
but should those efforts le unsuccessful, We lire told by
our informant that some of tin- mines mentioned may

SUPERIOR & EOSTON
Word was received tho past week from Supt. Tinker,
Mating that a. new strike of ore had been made In a new
raise from tho Mb level nt a point between ri-.o and 400
feet east of the old raise, from which oi shiitnents an
row being made.
This now raise is the most eastern exposure of ore o.i
the Kth level and tho news Is very encouraging. On th
f.lh bvel, the drift on th" vein has ben xteiided for :
distant f about 700 feet with approximately W" feet of
his distance in commercial ore.
President Pice should have arrived at tho roerty last
right. The annual meeting will be held December 1st,
with the annual re.ott shortly following.
Tin- steady Investment demand for this issue is steadily
being reflected in the pi ieo of the stock, and sab s yester
day were made as high .is SIM. At tho i. resent rate of
c'isbursemf nts on prevailing prices, the yield Is only fi's
jter c.rt, though earnings are greatly in excess of this
nriount and purchasers are not buying it for the preM-nt
oivldend disbursement, but ere discounting the tune when
a higher rate will le jull. While nothing has been sal I
as to when an increase In the dividend rate will be es
tablished, it is quite likely it will come shortly alter 1 1."
liTFt of the year.
During the j-ast year approximately $2.".o,ooo has been
expended in permanent Improvements at both the mine
and mill. We are reliably informed that Ihe plan nude,
way for the year 1914 call for an expenditure of a lik
arn-.i'tit. Among the proprsed Improvements is a new
boiler house, which will supply steam to the hydro-elec-Hie
plant. Steam' turbines for generating electricity, a
new hoist for the old ho shaft ami an auxiliary idanf o
the hydro-. ieetrle works, the latter to be located on Sienr
lisii Creek are among the improvements planind.
Tonopah Belmont earned f 1 K7.332 net for the month of
October, or I4.4J7 above the net for Septemb.-i . This is
the largest monthly profi? earned since November. 19l',
nt which time the net wa il!ir,2t'.."..
Owing to the largo :i in-tn nt of development work now
under way at the mine, the payroll for th" month of Oct
. her was $7,loo larger than for tbe .ievloiis month. Hint
it not been for this increased eXpmise, tho juolits of Oct
obei would have, almost equalled tho banner month of tho
c tniany. At this rate of earnings, the pr.flt Is equiva
lent to $l.f,o annually, and if mabitalned, the extra dis
bursement of ten cents which was Inaugurated this month
could be mad.- quarterly.
During the month of October, 1. ,:':'! tons of ore worn
milled, or mi Increase of :Via3 ,,,n i,M compared with tho
Se.t ember figures. The average gross value er ton vvan
yO.lo for Octobar, while values at $20. S7 were handled in
Devf-lcmmenla at the jimpm ty continue quite satisfac
tory with lmottaiii imj.r ovemcni s iu the more recent
Vol k on the Shall vein. The showing on the 1,100 ami
1,1 tn. levels on this vein was es)eclally good. Tho pel
moiit vein eonlin.it!' to furnish a very uniform grade of
milling rock from the 1,4oo level, and. it is exHcted that
Willi dev elojiments r.t de(tb, the leached matter will bo
found to have been redepi.slte.1, allowlnir for-a. greater
tonnaKo of good ore.
A wiy la rue amount of Vvclomcnt work is in prog
i. ss throughout the mine, and ore ockets for loading are
being cut on the l.r.OO level.
Tonopah Mining made a very satisfactory showing in
Octob.-r, the earnings being much larger than for an
other mouth tinting th u st year, anil are I ack to the rale
of approxinintt ly forty c.nts qiiiii fei ly. whereas only
twenty-live cents is now being paid.
A total ,,f r,,04: tons of ore of an average value of
JIVI0 pel' ton W.I8 milled t'liling the mouth of October.
This I an increas" in sminnents of ,v:i tons, and t he
average gross values likewise showed an iiu rtflse amount
ing to twenty cents er ton. This increase iu the gross
value of the ore is very pleasing, as the estimated valii"
of ihe ore reserve was placed at $ir..L'". je -r ton, according
lo i tie :is annual rnjioit. The Increase a -i miii,i i ml with
Ihe month of June is much greater, for doting lhai monlli
the viilues were X 1 4. !Mi or ton gross.
The net earnings were $i:it,loo, while Hie profits for ihe
pievious month's operations were lllo.ooo. In June, Ihe
inonih when tbe values wire so low, the rat earniii:'
were $s't.l27. Tho actual earnings for the past three,
months are equivalent to thirty-six cents quarterly, an. I
while no action leirartling the dividend w'll be taken un
til about the middle of December, It Is Just possible that
an increase over the hist disbursement of twenty-five
cents per share will be mad as it Is unnecessary for this
company to increase Its siirdus for It Is now lose to tho
J4, 000, 000 figure.
While no new high grade ofo has been developed, the
Slopes that aio now being Worked continue to furnish a
v ry good grade of milling ore.
Weit EnJ Consolidated' monthly r. p-u t for October,
which has recently lieon m lie public, .-bowed the net
pr.d'ts to be ! J0,l(is. This was secured from milli"g 4.47,.'.
t ns. or equivalent to a prolit. of bell, r than I'l.oo p(-r i,m.
The month of Octo'. i r w is no exception to Hie vev. ial
liivioiis months in that about one-half tho ore milled was
ei rai led entirely from th viinptncnt work.
'i'lie not profit jer tn was nt ns groat in October a if
was in Soitembnr. iniing which month $11.4" per ton n
was made. This p!'"b:ib!y can bo attributed to the ship
ments from dev. lopmeni work.
The dividend of live cents, payable December .Ird, calls
for ii di.-binsement of about $M.",00o. The .aytnent of this
dividend will not de reaso the treasury Pi tiny great e-t-nt.
for by the time the dividend is iayahle the company
should have, a r roximately $4oiono in the treasury. A
puhslantlal treasury ha lane- will undoubtedly be main
tained in order to allow for linanclng the projiose.l mill at
the Halifax projierty, although this should not Inleifeio
with :i disbursement of at least five cents quaitetiv on
West Fnd stock.
Following tie severe liquidation when the market broke
t'own as low- as $l'i, this issue has reeent'y held llrm al

The Halifax coniji.iny, which is controlled by W. st Fnd
Consolidated Ihloug!. ov n r.-hl;i of ti'C'.lVO shares, Is open
ing ii some very ..od ground and shipments from this
property are now smlh lent to cover ojioniting exis-ns. s.
relieving West Knd of this drain, which has amounted t i
from $:.,Mio t.-i $7,000 monthly.
Much is e-xpccHd from the development work on tho
Halifax iu the course of the next few weeks as the 1,001,
1,100 and 1,400 lev. hi ali have lateral oj emit gs that shouh'
encounti r the veins at any time.
The milling problem at this property will likely be
taken ni in the r.ear future as developments are now suf
ficiently advanced to warrant tho erection t f a mill.
Jim Butler for Hi" month of October milled b4i tons,
which gave u not juoiit of fiUo'.).!!). Tbi:i shows a con
siderable dtcreas-.. from the profits received during Sep
tember, when a total of $s r,(;fi was made from tho milling
of l.t.'t; ton. It is Mithin.ited that the November show
ing will be much better aa a higher grade of ore Is now
being sent to the mill.
Tile annual repoit of this company, which was rocentlc
issued, showed rut rolits for the liscal v.ar ending Oct
ober 1st of $10t.rso, or equivalent to better than five cents
,er share. This Indicates that the past month's earning'
were nni'h below the averag" for tho year. lim Hullo
has no mill of its own, shipments being made to ihe Pel
iimnt Milling Company.
It Is quite llitely that this company will develop the op
bodies on lis gr.uind which lbs In close proximity to the
Desert Queen shaft of th" Tonopah Mining (mpan.
Through that shaft this will make it possible to open ui
Ihe unexplored ground on the Cth, 7th and Mb levels with
very littl" expense to Iho Jim Putter Company.
Tonopah Extension announced a tegular dividend of 'J ' '
