RECORD Ohio-Kentucky Merger Said To nave Been Consummated Contracts Signed In Salt Lake Last Week That the Nevada Utah . Mines & 1 Sine.ters corporation and the Ohio Kentucky MJnlng companies have fiually reached an agreement; and that the difficulties which have pre vented the operation of what is now kuown as the Consolidated' H.cae properties.has come to an end seems to be an accomplished fact. Representatives of the two 'inter terests came together in Salt Lake several days ago when an understat ing was arrived at between Ernest U. Woolley, representing the Nevada Utah, and Ernest L. Oodbe, represent ing the Ohio Kentucky. The direct- ori of the former approved the action of President Woolley by wire; while Ernest L. Godbe departed last Sat- urday for Louisville, Kentucky, for the purpose of gaining the sanction of Col. J. L. Hackett to the trans, acl'on. The details of the merger have not . vet been released : but the net re sult is that the Nevada Utah ac'qutr es by purchase the Ohio Kentucky, interests and with the Consolidated . Pioche is to be merged Into the Amal- e&mated Mocha Mints company. The ratification of the deal is expected . almost any moment; and as soon as -uu is aone; uiu uow ,oii, Will start work at No. 1 shaft ot ; tue ' coasoliaaved Pioche. , Nothing , "awn, wUl stand in the way ot tue rapid.

At one time it was understood that all details were ar ranged for a deal.whereby the Nevada Utah crowd would take over the Prince Consolidated with other prop erties. After month?, of labor oa this proposition It was given up, and the Nevada Utah rounded out the merger of the Day and Bristol prop erties, then came back with a propo sition to take over the Ohio Kentucky and Consolidated Pioche estates. This arrangement seems to meet with the approval of a majority ot the interests concerned, and will give Nevada Utah interests all the prop erty titty need for extensive develop ment tor 'ears, Former Pioche .Woman In the Dally Pioche Record of cost the lives of nearly all on board. While this deal will be of great value t jiueht lilers ot both companies, it LK-ans a great deal to the entlr.j camp of Pioche. The control! Instin ct rents in Ohio Kentucky get, cash for their holdings; and as they own the controlling interest in Prince Consolidated, this will give them ample means with which to place tne i-riuco ou a regularly producing ha uls. Nevada Utah gets a valuable property In the Ohio Kentucky, and H gives these Interests a large tract ot ground hoGi to the north and south ot their Pioche properties. Both com panies owned claims Jointy and in every respect, ths bost way to oper ate the properties was by .purchase ot one Company's interests by the other." ; .' ': ; ' y . ..

A SALT LAKE ACCOUNT The following relative to the Ohio Kentucky-Nevada Utah neyot a u. is taken from the Telegram ot Salt Lake: "biuce the arrival of Ernest Wool- ley from New York. a number of con ferences have been held between the coutruiling interests In Nevada Utah and Ohio Kentucky Mining compan ies, with the result that an agree ment to consolidate has been reached Papers were signed late yesterday afuruoon, wnich in effect provide that Nevada Utah takes over the controlling interest in, the Ohio Ken tucky properties In the Pioche camp. Woolley, who Is president of the Nev ada Utah Mines and Smelters tor poration, signed the agreement for his company, and Ernest Godbe leaves for Louisville, Ky., today ,o get the signatures of Col. Hackett and others who bold the controlling In terests in Kentucky. There appears to be no obstacle In the way of ion summating this deal, which will tfive the Nevada I tab control of a . large mineral be t in the Pioche camp, including about 1000 acres. "A number of efforts have been m4 to bring about this merger slots les were saved: although the utter !Lll mining man ot Utah and Nevada; and1 lack of discipline and shameful sel- fbihnecss of the crew might, less fvaorable circumstances, under have Michael Williams, who has been a resident of Pioche for the past 35 years and who at various times has been more or less conspicious as a raining operator, in this district Both were members '. of the Odd Fellows' fraternity; the ' latter of the local Miriam Rebekah lodge of this city.
