CALUMET & ARI70NA (Setters Manager QcscBway has been qsoted as gsylng that tliis com: any had apein in excess of IHOil.iMlnO on the lroperty in the Superior District. So lar the results have not demonstrated anything Of value, although the property continues tO be developed along the lines suggested by Mr. Qroenwsy, and be hopes thai evshtually ore of sufficient Mtiantity to at least repay the Calumet Arizona for the BMMaey spent will be opened up. In addition to ihe development work on the Florence or Superior district property, CalUBttSI B Arizona now has a forCS of men at work on the t'opper tilant property In the Mammoth Diatrict. This work has rSCSntl) been r.sumeil and consists of churn drilling along the outer edges af the property. Considerable tonnage has been shipped from this mine and the drilling is with the expci t. it ions that ad- dltloaej ore bodlee will be found to further re hn buret ih- parent company for the money outlsyhd, At tin- Calomel 1 AriaoHi Dlahee property Improve tnenta an being made with the ailrface equlptnenl at the Junction shaft. This is in the nature of a crushing plasi that is being installed, and which will a. low for the handl ing of a greater tonnage of the sulphide ores. MOHAWK This company n..t out an output of tons of mineral foff the month of May. which is higher than the average month's production during the years 111 and till, during which period the company was unhampered. This pro duction la proof enough thai this company is again back te normal working conditions We understand that consider able mass .upper which was mined did not ahOW up in the last month'a production, and If li had been shipped to the am el ter the month jUSl passed WOUM have beaten the rec ord of the banner month, when 77.,". tons WSffC made. The new working schedule Which was inaugurated the lirst ol the year is being found to work out very sutisla. -torily although ) is bound to bring about higher costs faff ail the companies. In all likelihood, this increase will amount to from to !( cents i pound even when tie mlnea, are working to normal. The mines have been operat ing to capacity for uch a ghoti length of time that it Is almost impossible to get a line on what the aver. mo costs par pound win bg At the year as the (stB for the cast few months erg no criterion. Those most fa milial with costs maintain that the district generally Will show about cent higher costs as compared with 1111, wiun everything was worhvag aornaaUy. Mohawk in Itll produced its copper for l0.f centa per pound, so allowing for the normal increase in costs, it is quite likely Its t upper is now being made for approximate ly 11 COnta, and Ml a 14 cent metal market. Mohawk 'a earn ings at the pt.sent rate of production would be about ti. per share annually. Mohawk's mineral runs approximate ly 7'i'-; refined copper, so at the rate of the May output, which waa 6SS tone of mineral, the annual production A'OUld be 11,100,000 pounds. According to an official of the company, plans formulat ed by the previous management are being carried out in that Mo. :'. shaft is being eliminated as I producer, although this shaft will he left in such shape that it can he us. d uny time it would be found necessary. The reason for discontinuing this No. :t shaft is because Of thS nearness of this shaft fo both Xo. and No. 4 and the fact that the BUffface equipment at this point is .some what ami. in. ii.d. BSli Nos. and I shafts have been ear ned down to a point mm h deeper than the bottom of No. I and even noW the ground beneath the latter shalt is be ing taken out. The short distance between these ghttfU enables the working of all the territory contiguous to No. I through Nos. and 4. At No. .; shaft which is the one directly north of the Ah med;, no attempt has bt ft n mole to force production Only three live itopea are being, worked from this shaft and a email skip and single skip road are being used. lOvciything is in readineaa at this ahafl to get out g greater tonnage any time 11 may be BjgH essarv, but owing to the immense tonnSge opened Up in Ihe older shafts, the management is evidently iii no hurry to yet out a larger output from this point, and furthermore, iln company's mill is now working Bl ItS maximum. This mill, like neatlv all the other mills In the dlSttl t. has been forced t operate Sundays In older to handle the rock thai accutnulstec during the weak. It was a year ago the SOth of the present monlh that Mo I gwM declared its last dividend, and stockholders are hope ful that some SStlon will be taken al the s. in i - a 1 1 una I per iod now approaching, While it is hardly to be ggpSCted. '-wing to the hover price fOT the metal, lhat the S.N rata Which was PPM h year ago, will he maintained, a dividend Of a leser amount will he welcomed by the sto Madders.

We are given to understand that tin- Bgethod of treatment has practically been decided upon, ami tin- management can now v ery closely figure the earning power of this' conn i While there has been BO appreciable advance in th, pi ,, of the stock, at times there are no offerings al any pine within reason ami sooner or later this accumulation will he reflected bt a higher level of I l ie s. WOLVERINE A greater portion of this company's rock tonnage is now Omlng from tile loot of the vein that was ef intact n,.m previous operations. This ground, while nol nearly as rich ns that extMcted, c.m be broken very Cheaply, and especial ly since the inaugural i.m of the Jack-Hammer type Of dul ling machine. While no positive liguies arc obtainable, it is estimated that there is an average of very nearly eight feet of ground as the foot of the vein that can be CStrscti I bet. .re g.iiing to the lootwall. At one point recently, Si feet of grOUnd Were taken out before leaching the lootwall, although it is out of the ordinary, for a ' wallow" occurred pla e. Wolverine by no means depends on the tonnage obtained from thla method of mining, for it has approximate!) 100 feet of virgin ground in No. .1 shaft and No, 4 has eonald elable BtOffS. Then again, this company lias a place Of ground, the rOCk frota which can otilv be taken out through a Btffb-ahafl from the bottom of No. .1. This sub-shaft will go to a depth of from 100 to 600 feel and will open qulti i large tonnage. Tin output of Wolverine ff Mny was nr. tons af min eral, Thla company's mineral diessed about 77', refined copper. This product, while not as great as a few yean back when the property was In its zenith, is well up With any month for tin- past eighteen and is about the produc tion that tan be expected frofS this mine from now on. At this rate of produition. Wolverine will make approxl mutely 7,500,000 pounds of refined copper annually, ami fig uring on I IVi cent cost whith is about of a cent higher than in l!(l- this company's earnings would be about 7.". per share on 14 cent metal, of course, it should be re membered that Wolverine is a liquidating proposition, and that from now on rook of a much lower grade will he hand lad. Sometime past rock that yielded an average ol im pounds refined copper to the ton was mined while RO tin average is a little In excess ol is pounds, so it can be plain ly seen that COSta tor producing copper from this grade of rock must necessarily be higher. SOUTH LAKE This pro). city has begun work on the 1,100 foot CI cut from tin shalt to the South 1,-ike series of lodes cut b) drill holes NOS .'I. 4, and ;. The crosscut is now m 14 feet and two ma. hues ale working. It Is quite this i ross; ut will be advanced at the rati" of from 1 e; to l'ihi feet u month If no harder ground than that so far en countered is met w ith, operations on the so-called Let -green lodes met in shaft sinking will he resumed next week. The crosscut, which had entered the foot wall ..I No. 1 lode at the time of suspension, will he run through the formation and a drift started. Plats also are cut on tic 4i h. Ith and Uth levels and IBS lode will be attacked from each -.f these stations within a short time. The sump at th. lOS-fOOl level has just been completed. The rock cruahlng plant is ready ami tin- no-called Evergreen rock will be crushed and .sent to Hie mill as fast as it is taken ""I- I' has no, et been decided what null will do the u"k, but the probability jH that the Pranklin lant will bandit Ha- tonnage. VICTORIA We understand that the east drift recently started from th" MSSfOOl level g developing the same class of rich rock opened on the Ifd, HO and .'Ith levels. This develop nient practically assures good commercial ground for a distance on the dip of the vein of .Tin feet, which, with an) considerable lateral extension, would Insure the mine a l.iug life on this formation alone. The dev elopim nt i' generally regarded as raising Victoria out of the low grade i ISSS and placing bSt On a ISVS Pith the better grade of amygdaloid mines, although her absolute proving is in ihe future. The lode is 40 feet wide on an average lor tbe 110 feet it has been drifted upon Is the east at the 14th level. The shaft lias been sunk to :-iiiio fed and this last fe.-t is now being timbered. The general campaign "Ml CSntll to be directed toward opening Hie lode af depth and to the east at the shaft. The mineral output is approximately mn tons monthly. THE PORPHYRIES ' Chln Nevada Consolidated, Ray Consolidated and l lah Copper have declared regular quarterly dividends, and ac cording to Hie action ol these stocks In the market, it is quite evident that hut few were looking for increases. The dividends were 7'. cents, 37 cents. and 7.1 cents re- BSCtlVSrjr, and the stocks sold ex-dlvidend yesterday. There has been a little selling of Chlno find rtnh Copper of late for foreign account as both of these issues nre held extensively by European investors, while it is true Boeae of these companies are earning considerable in excess of dividend disbursements, the surplus Is not available for divldenda as Ha- stripping and plant improvements take nearly all the gag ess. INDIANA Work at this property is proceeding in accordance with 'he program outlined in the annual report. The sixth level drift, which is In about 150 feet, is being advanced and a MPJi and winze are being driven. Considerable mass work was taken out last week, one of the masses weighing a ton Th. shaft is unwatered to the 11th level and work will be begun nt this station shortly,' ns well as at other levels between the 11th and th. The same plan will he followed as on the 6th level, drifting and the driving of explore! rTy winzes and raises, the wlnses to he conno ted wiih the shaft. Continued on 7th Page, Cola. 5, 6, 7.
