Elmer M. Bray, manager of the At lanta gold mine at Atlanta arrived in the city Tuesday evening accomparr led by George Gunn, one of 'he pro moters of the Cumberland Ely com pany at Ely. They left Wednesday morning, by private conveyance for Tie new gold camp.

Tbs winze from the 900 is now down about 43 feet with the face still showin? a five-foot breast of ore and values running about $15 in gold, 27 per cent lead and 25 ounces in silver. A" new ore body has been opened at ii, point 325 feet south from the shaft on the 800 level and Manager Cook pronounces it as being one cf the most important disclosures ev er made la the mine. The avenue will bCT rorti't!od on to an-intersection with the' porphyry dike, which is "believed to be the-" sorrce of the minem" pn nvl' disfribt?ted throngh ui the JieudhA. vevla system. dike, from Which it Is believed that the mineral solutions originated.

Judging from recent development, Mr. Lemmon has worked his way out of the zone of displacement; the for vj. at Ions have become regular and as 1 depth is gained and the porphjry dike approached, a noticable increase in the value of the ore has beccme manifest. It is the intention, to continue the winze a little further; when in all probability, a raise to the surface will be made and the permanent working shaft thereby established. Although effective work is being ac complished, hoisting by means of a horse whim from the depth now neces pary is annoyingly slow. The com pany purchased gasoline hoisting equipment some months ago, but un it' now, the management has not felt safe in deciding; as to just where the shaft should be located.. For that reason, the plant has never been in stalled. But it is 'certain now that if'soon will be.

ZIIX ORE IS SLATED FOR HIGHER PRICES "I shall not be at all surprised to see spelter sell at $6.50 per 100 pounds, for the reason that I do not believe there is a 30 day's sup ply of zinc ' ore on hand in the United States at -. the present time. Weaver Loper, formerly of New York and now a resident of Spokane, and vice-president and managing director of the Lucky Jim zinc mines, lim ited, operating in southeastern Brit ish Columbia, said . this in Spokane during a stay of a few days on the from Denver to Kalso, B.

In March of this year, at which Ua.e our mines were purchased b the present corporation, spelter was quoted at $4.60 per 100 pounds, St. Louis. In the interim the Payne bill became effective Aug. 5, and im- posed a duty on zinc ores of 1 cent a pound, since which time the advance in spelter has more than, absorbed duty, owing to the fact that current Quotations indicated they were bid ding at St. Louis $6.15 per 100 pounds. "There is nothing extraordinary in this fact, as it is merely occasioned by the laws of supply and demand, and I shall, not be at all surprised to see speitei within the next 30 .days sell at $6.50 per 100 pounds.
