TH1 P D IOGHE RECORD 11 OIL, ESTABLISHED SEPT. 17, iTO. SINGLE COPIES ! CENTS. PIOCHE, UXCOLX CUCSTT. SEV..PA. HUD IV. AIGIST IS. RAYMOND AND ELY WEST TO BE OPENED AT DEPTH The Raymond and Ely Went, a min ing property adjoining the Greenwood mine of the Amalgamated Pioche Mines and Smelters Corporation and a property owned principally by tha Bamberger Interests of Salt Lake, haa been secured by S. T. Uodbe under a favorable contract and Mr. Uodbe is already at work in the effort to open the mine at depth. A mutually advantageous contract has been worked out with the Com bined Metals Company permitting work to be done through the No. 1 shaft and two men have started on the ti, ii -foot level to drive through the Combined Metals territory and into the Raymond and Ely West. This work should be (unshed in about sixty days, when the Raymond and .Ely West will be prospected at the deuth of 63" feet from the surface. It is the rirst work to be done on the property In years and now, thanks to the initia tive of Mr. Uodbe. it seems reasonable to look forward to the development of a large body of ore within a compara tively short time and at a depth that means much more than any shallow development. The great beds of ore In the Com bined Metals mine have been devel oped to within a short distance of the boundary line between the two prop erties on the 400-foot level, but on this level they dip below the 4u0-foot work ings and instead of following this ore with an Impractical Incline Mr. Uodbe will extend the 650-foot drift to a point under the ore and will raise to the beds. With this preliminary work finished and the ore opened It will be an easy mining problem to stope the ore. drop it to the 650-foot level and raise it through the main working shaft, the No. 1, directly to the ore bins on the railroad. In driving through the ground of the Combined Metals an interesting territory will be developed- territory which haa yielded some high-grade silver-lead ore and a territory in which there is good reason to hope for the development of rich stopes of size. The leasing of this territory, which has been dormant for so many years, and the starting of active work on a level which will develop the property almost at once, is the most interesting piece of mining news of the district this week. It is to be regretted that the Record is unable to quote Mr. (iodbe or the officials of the Combined Metals in regard to their plans. In answer to an Inquiry they said that there was nothing to give out for pub lication, although they hoped to have good news to release some time in- the near future. Minerva Tungsten Has Many Veins O. A. Knox, superintendent of the Minerva Tungsten mine, north of Pi oche, was In town Wednesday on bust ties, and during a lull in a busy hour he said to the Record reporter that conditions at the mine were much the same as usual and that the labor trou bles at Ely did not affect his mine op eration. The Minerva Tungsten is one of the Important mines of the district and it is hoped that it will become one of the big producers of tungsten ores in the United States. There are three dis tinct veins on the company's holdings. On one vein, which is from seven to nine feet in width, a working tunnel is being driven with day and night shifts and has already opened up the ore for a distance of 400 feet. In this tunnel, which is now the main work ing tunnel, stopes have been started and from these stopes ore will be taken for the mill. A second vein is about twelve feet in width. The larg est body of ore Is found In the third vein, which is from fifteen to fifty feet In width and on which there is a sixty foot prospect shaft and i 200-foot tun nel. Work on this asset will be start ed in about thirty days, when equip ment will be placed on the claim, which is distant about a mile from the present workings. On the property is a complete ISO ton mill. A pipeline three and a half miles in length supplies the necessary water. The mine camp has accommo dations for about fifty men. The work of equipping the mine was undertaken about a year ago and rushed along, only to be finished about the time the armistice was signed and tungsten, manganese and chrome producers thrown out of a balloon without a par achute and without time to choose a landing spot. At this time, however, the market for tungsten is stiffening and offers hope to the producer. In June $9.50 a unit was the basis for some business. while now the same business is sought on the basis of $12, with some pro ducers hoping for $15. The continued operation of this prop erty means much to Pioche. Ship ments will be made from this point and supplies naturally will be pur chased here. Two big trucks loading on the streets of Pioche present a pleasing sight. Men in increasing numbers are finding occupation at the mine. Altogether the Minerva Tung sten has been an important factor in contributing to the welfare and pros perity of the county. Relatives Seeking Robert A. Young Robert A. Young, who for twenty five years or more made the southern section of the desert his headquarters and who was formerly one of the own ers of the Gold Chief mine, near Man vel, Cal., Is now being sought by east ern relatives. Mrs. J. S. Crocker reached Las Vegan in search of her uncle about ten days ago, coming from Boston and first traveling to San Fran cisco, where she found that Mr. Young was at the Gold Chief mine. At Las Vegas Mrs. Crocker learned that her uncle, Robert A. Young, had left and his present whereabouts was not known. Anyone having news of Mr. Young Is requested to communicate with Mrs. Crocker at 529 Geneva ave nue, Dorchester, Boston, Mass.

In a well-played and Interesting baseball game between the Pioche and Caliente nines on the Pioche diamond last Sunday the miners defeated the railroaders with a score of 10 to 5. Both nines were strong and well matched. Pioche retains the cham pionship simply because of the hard work put up in the practicing during the last ten days. The Caliente boys are ballplayers and their town should be proud of them, whether winning or losing. Rloctie is proua or ner team. Lincoln county should be glad that her young men have succeeded so well in athletics. It is difficult to measure the progress made by the boys in the sage brush league, because there has yet been no opportunity to play other county teams, but It is understood that some, relatively big games will, be played later In the season. In Sunday's game the two pitchers deserve more than passing praise. Frank Dolan has worked with the mil itary police, a nine with a record pub lished in the baseball guide. Floyd Bover. with professional practice, is quite as good. Dolan struck out seven men, while Bover struck out eight. Dolan had the better support, both of nlavers and from the rooters. The other pls"ers were matched quite as evenly. In the first inning caliente got in wo runs, thanks to Lloyd Denton's wo-bagger, and put Pioche away in . 2. 3 order. Nothing crossed in the second. The third was equally snappy, no one reaching first. In the fourth nninir Pioche nut Caliente OUt 1, i, 6 nd then aiu some Datung, tunning three tallies. Score now A to It In favor of Pioche.

The Las Vegas baseball nine defeat- ed the Milford team at Mtlford last Sunday with the score 8 to 5. Pioche would like to get a game with the southern ball team and Manager Jess Freudenthal has wired Walter Seare, the Las Vegas manager, asking If a game cannot be arranged for some Sunday in Pioche. a return game to be played later in Las Vegas.

Mr. Lloyd controls eleven rlaims east of Pioche and has been quietly engaged in interesting certain Los An geles mining, men in the opportunity afforded In Pioche for a custom mill Unfortunately the engineer who was Jo investigate the project arrived dur- iiik air. l.ioya s aosence. i nat mere la a real opportunity In Pioche for a custom mill Is wel I u,w.vi to the mining men of the district, and mere is not one now in operation Is perhaps a reflection on the business men of Pioche.
