VOL. 26 SOCORRO. NEW MEXICO. SATURDAYi AUGUSTS. 1908 NO. 28 THE GREAT KELLY MINE 13 Now Making a Much Better Showing than Ever Before in Its History. S. W. TRAYLOR INTERVIEWED He Bu Just Spent Two Months at Mina Improring Processes and Watching Developments. S. W. Traylor of the Traylor Engineering company of No. 2 Rector street, New xork Cn,i was in Socorro Wednesday mi his way toDenver. Mr. Tt.iyUu is largely interested in 1 1 1 - I vin ous Kelly mine in the Magdalena district and had just s-nt two months there installing new ami extensive machinery and erect ing developments umlergri umi Asked if he would favor ihr Chieftain with an authentic Ktatement of recent progress and present conditions in the Kelly, Mr. Travlor obligingly assented and stated as follows: "Development work, as laid out by the Tri-Dul'.ion Smelting & Development Co. in the Kelly mines, h.ts resulted in numerous discoveries of rich ore during the last two mouths. "The company has developed, on the fifth level, a Udy ol sul phide ore that is almost contin uous, of a length of over 11(H) feet, and ore in both breasts. They have also developed ore bodies on the sixth level, both high grade zinc sulphides and lead sulphides, and zinc-lead car donates, the sulphide ores leing luund lying next to the green stone dike. This dike is the footwall of the sulphide ore, the hanging wall being what is lo cally termed silver-pipe. Above this silver-pipe the carlionate ores are found. This carbonate vein is in places over 100 feet thick. "The developments referred to are principally between the fourth and sixth levels, reached by the Paschal r.haft. The com pany have, within the last year, sunk a three-compartment shaft some 600 feet down the side of the mountain. The shaft is vertical and at the present time is 400 feet in depth. From this shaft three crosscuts are being driven. The shaft on, the 200 foot level has cut three bodies of ore. The first is on what is lo cally called the west silver-pipe, the second is carbonate ores in the carbonate vein, and the third is east of what is locally called the east silver-pipe. The ores thus far developed on this level, it being the deepest workings in the district, are of very much higher grade, and the dimensions and size of the ore bodies seem to be equal to those discovered in the upper workings. "The formation.of the district has certainly been proven, as the bottom of the Traylor shaft is now 800 feet, vertically, below the apex of the Kelly vein. "The new plant of the Tri- Bulhon Co., handling about 100 tons ol ore daily, is now in suc cessful operation, separating the lead from the zinc and after wards the zinc lrotn the iron. The lead concentrates are aver aging about (6 per cent lead and 28 oz. in silver, while the zinc products range from 40 to 5o per cent zinc, depending upon what part of the mine the ore is tnin ed from. "The 100-ton plant referred to has a crushing capacity of 300 tons per day, and it is the inten tion of the company to open up sufficient ground to mine ore enough to supply the full capac ity of the plant during the next 12 months. "In connection with the milling facilities there are a number of new metallurgical features, par ticularly with reference to the separation of th zinc from the iron, which has never lefore been accomplished on the Kelly ores. This is done by the use of a new dotation process, using a basic solution of any ordinary sulphate, copper, iron or alum ina. Following this flotation plant, the final recovery of the zinc is made by use of magnetic separators. The total recovery is above 90 per cent of the zinc, from the fact of the ores of this district being all metal, and ow ing to the fact of the admirable settling facilities, as well as the 2ihLn"T.J."-fP": I lidliuil Willi iiic lUliiriiiiauui; plant. This mill is being oper ated with a consumption of only 27,000 gallons of new water in 24 hours. All of the water as it passes through the mill is return ed to settling tanks, and all of the fine slimes carried tempor arily in suspension is settled out in the tanks, and form a part of the recovery from the mill, this product averaging about 45 per cent Zinc and lead combined. "The m-ent developments l rom a metallurgical standpoint, made by the Travlor Engineer ing Co. fr the Tri-Pnlhon Co., hav certain! v solved the ques- liun of I he successful treatnlent ui tin- ores found in the Kelly district, and should certainly be the means of greatly increasing the ore production of t he terri tory." NEW MEXICO GETS $25,000 Under Nw Law Giving: 25 per cent from Forests to States. Announcement has just been made of the amounts which each state containing national forests will receive under the new law giving Jo per cent ol tne grjss receipts from forests to these states. The total amount to go to the slates, from the receipts of the fiscal year which ended June r0. is $447.0i.3.7'. The amounts to go to each state or territory are: Alaska, $2.S4.78; Arizona, S42.iilO.44; Arkansas, SJl.VdS; California, $52.437.78; Colorado. $50,')55.7; Idaho, $5íi.307.

The law requires that this money be expended upon public roads and schools by the coun ties which contain national for est land. In this way the coun ties are compensated for the re duction of taxable area brought about by the existence of the forests. IJefore this year the states have received 10 per cent of the gross receipts, but congress vot ed last winter to increa-e the amount to 25 per cent. Important Real Estate Deal. Among the important real es tate deals in Socorro in the last few days is one by which I'. J. Savage sold to Jos. E. Smith the property formerly known as the Socorro Fire Clay Works. The transfer includes fifty two lots in the Chavez addition to gether with buildings, pipe line, tracks, etc. Mr. Smith is now having the lots carefully sur veyed with a view to placing them on the market in the near future.

JUDGE KELLY MARRIED The Circumstances Conncctod With the Wedding Were of the Most Romantic Kind. AN AUTO RACES AGAINST TIME The Marriage Vows Are Uttered While the Train Conductor Is Crying "All Aboard." Judge W. E. Kelley has lieen receiving the hearty congratula tions of his host of Socorro friends this week, and how it all happened is well told by the Las Vegas Optic as follows: Mrs. Mattie E. (arlick, well known in this city as a teacher in Castle school the last term, is the heroine of a romance which saw its completion at 3 o'clock this morning on the depot plat form at Albuquerque. There, as the pulling of an air pump punctuated the brief serv ice and rendered inaudible por tions of the marriage vows, Mrs. (iarlick surrendered title to that name and became Mrs. W. E Kellev. And as train No. ') pulled out of the station on its way south, Judge Kelly swung his brid ot five seconds upon the rear plat form of the hindmost Pullman, thus beginning a wedding jour ney to Socorro, where they will make their home. July 31 had been agreed upon, but when the time came lor Mrs. (Iarlick to take the train and meet her luture husband, wash outs had delayed No. ' till late at night, Dut a message from Albuquerque told her Mr. Kelley had come up I rom Socorro and was waiting impatiently and so she took the train and did the best she could. Meanwhile the prospective" bridegroom was far from sereni ty. First he tried to secure a marriage license, but the terri torial law requires that both par ties to the marriage contract must be present when the license is issued. This was a disap pointment, but Judge Kelly ar ranged things in advance, so that Kev. J. C. Rollins would be up to meet the train and Probate Clerk Walker also would be there with an automobile. At 2:50 the train pulled up at the Albuquerque depot. Mrs. (iarlick Hew into the waiting auto, the machine shot to the courthouse where the license was signed up and the return race be gan. Many passengers and depot attaches had learned what was in progress and as the happy couple descended from the auto at the depot there was a cheer and congratulatory cries. Kev. Rollins began the cere mony almost before Mrs. (ar lick's feet had touched the plat form, for the conductor was cry ing "AU-o-o-b-o-oo-ward!" in that way conductors have. In place of joining hands when the words were said, Judge Kel ly thew his arm around the waist of his just then wife and hoisted her aboard the already moving pullman, following with a leap that landed him almost in her arms. The train raced away into the darkness, bearing on its rear platform two hearts that beat as one.

CITY'S IMPROVEMENTS Thoy aro Now Well Under Way and on a Very Extensive Scale. THE INVESTMENT OVER $100,000 The Gem City, Long Reputed Dead, la Fast Coming into a New Life. In order that the readers of the Chieftain outside the city of Socorro may have a clear and a correct idea of the extensive im provements now in progress in the (era City, the followingeare f 11 1 and reliable statement con cerning those improvements is given: TIIK NKW SMKI.TKK. The Pan-American Federal Smelting and Refining company began the preliminary work for the erection of its 200-ton Socor ro smelter two weeks ago. Tin large reservoirs tor the use of the plant have already been con structed and on Monday morn ing forty or lilty men will be put to work grading the site for the smelter. This site is about a quarter nf a mile south of the old stamp mill. The Socorro smelter is only one of sev eral that the company is now building, but the Socorro office will be headquarters for the en tire system. The plant here will represent an investment of approximately $ii5,00!). l.li.IIT AND POWKK PLANT. The Socorro Electric compa ny s electric light and power plant is well advanced in the process of construction, though it has not been completed as soon as was originally hoped. The power house is practically com pleted, the machinery is nearly all installed, about half the hous es of the city have been wired, the poles are set, and a part of the wire has been placed. The jower house is located beside the Santa Fe's tracks adjoining the old Fraley lime and coal houses. The machinery is of the very latest and best type, an especial feature of the plant being the turbine engine. When complet ed the plant will be one of the very best in the southwest. It will cost about $20,000. SCHOOL OK MINI'S DOKMITOKV. At the last session oí the 'ter ritorial legislature an appropria tion of $15,000 was made for the erection of a dormitory for the accommodation of studonts at the School of Mines. The plans of the building show that it will contain a large assembly room for the use ot the academic de partment, a commodious dining room and kitchen, bath rooms, closets, and large and comforta ble sleeping rooms for about thirty students. The contrac tors have completed the stone work of the basements of the building and began laying brick Monday morning. It is hoped that the new dormitory will be ready for occupancy not later than the first of November. PA K K HOl SK ADDITION. The owners of the Dark House recently lef a contract for the building of an eight-room addi tion to that well known place ot entertainment. I he addition will be on the north side of the plazita in front of the old part of the building. 1 he concrete foundations for the addition are about completed. I.KKSON'S NKW llflLDINO. J. J. Leeson recently bought from the local Masonic lodge a twentv-live foot lot on Manzan ares avenue adjoining the Cham bón store on t lie east. This was a part of the district burned over last spring. Mr. Leeson has re constructed and enlarged the building that was destroyed by fire and but little remains to be done to make it ready for occu pancy. ALIANZA HISPANO A M K K ICAN A. The local lodge of the Alian za Hispano-Americana has be gun the erection of a commo dious and substantial building across California street from the fair grounds. This will le an important improvement for that part of the city. SUMMAKY. These are the most important though by no means all the im provements now in progress in Socorro. It is conservative to say that they will cost 5100.000, and there are other improve ments in prospect that will cost still more. ADDITIONAL LOCALS It is reported that a workman named Delmar at the Elephant Dutte dam shot olT two toes from his right foot a few davs ago with a gun that wasn't load- eu.

SECOND ANNUAL FAIR The Various Corurmttoos Are Mak ing Good Progress and the Pros pects Are Excellent. A CALLED MEETING TONIGHT Everybody Requested to Attend, Committees Will Report, New Flans Will Be Discussed. Every day increases the degree of success assured for Socorro county's second annual fair. All committees are making good progress in the work as signed them and therefore are much encouraged. A meeting of the fair associa tion is called for this evening at 8 o'clock at the court house. At this meeting the various com mittees will report upon the pro gress they have made and new plans will be suggested to pro mote the interests of the fair. Some fears have been express ed that Socorro will have no baseball team this season. Such fears are groundless. Socorro will have a baseball team and it will be a good one. The plan now is to associate the six teams of the county in a county league and offer liberal purses to in duce them to play during fair week. A further feature of the general plan is to permit each team of the league to import its battery only and also to require each team to report its line-up thirty days before the opening of the fair. Let everybody attend the meeting this evening and say what he thinks of this and other plans. NEWS ITEMS FROM RESERVE The Chieftain's Regular Correspond ent Sends List of Interesting Occurrences.
