Mining Decisions. Under the existing mining law of Texas, no minerals, as such, can be bought from the state, but the land may be purchased under its officinl classification of the state land office as "mineral-bearing" land. The procedure -j to acquire a mining claim containing non-metalic minerals, such as coal, oil, sulphur, salt, marble, etc.. is this: Affidavit with Surveyor. The claimant files with the county surveyor an affidavits stating that he has gone upon the land for the purpose of buying it for its minerals. This affi davit is sent to the state land office, and the land is not subject to be sold to any one else until the lapse of one year. ! The claim may be an entire section in area, with the option of an additional j section if the applicant does S5000 worth of development work. During the year's option, the applicant has the right to prospect and work the claim. Before the year's option expires, the applicant may enter into obligation to the state to purchase the land, pay ing 10 percent of the price in cash and the balance in nine equal annual in stalments, the prices being not less than ?15 an acre if within 10 miles of railroad, and not less than $10 If over 10 miles from railroad. Important Mining Decisions. The presumption that an owner of surface of a mining claim owns all minerals beneath it ceases when It is shown that a vein found beneath the surface has its apex in a claim belong dng to another person. But the burden of proving ownership of such apex vein and its dip and descent to and under neath another claim to overcome the presumptive ownership of the surface owner, is on the person who asserts ownership of such apex vein. Keely vs. Ophir Hill, C. 31. Co., 169 Federal Re porter, 601. Title to Mineral. A person claiming title to minerals as surface owner, after a severance of sur face ownership, must show actual, notoriaus, exclusive, continuous, peace able and hostile possession of the mine, Independent of his possession of the surface, In the same manner as a stranger. Such actual possession may be shown by opening and operating the mine, and the possession is continuous if the operation is carried on at such seasons as the nature of the work per mits or the custom of the community requires, if there is some proof to pos session during an interval to connect the operation, when resumed, with the prior operations. Gordon vs. Park, 117 S. TV. RepL, 1163. Forfeiture of Claim. "Where a forfeiture of a mining claim Is based on the theory that the claim ant failed to perform the necessary representation work, th burden of proof is on the person setting up such forfeiture to establish the same by clear and convincing proof. But where a forfeiture is sought for failure to do such representation work, and the lo cator contends that certain work done by him on one of a group of claims was done in fact for the benefit of the en tire group, the burden of proof then shifts to the locator and he is required to prove that the work was adapted to and suitable for the development of all the claims, and that it was Intended for that purpose. This rule was applied where it was claimed that the work of extending a tunnel for the purpose of Intercepting a vein appearing in a shaft which had theretofore been sunk on a certain claim from the top of a hill, but such tunnel was on the opposite side of a gulch from the other claims ir t controversy, and it did not appear tfcr.t tho vein sought to be intercepted traversed in all the oJjer claims, or even crossed the gulch in their direc tion; and in order to render the tunnel available to develop any of the other claims it would be necessary to sink a shaft or winze to a depth below the level of the gulch, and to drift toward such tunnel many hundred feet, and to carry out this plan would be far more expensive than by sinking a shaft In the gulch in connection with the other claims In the group. Under such cases, the court holds that the representation work in the way of extending the tunnel was not reason ably adapted to and could not in good faith have been Intended to develop the claims on the other side of the gulch, and such work was not sufficient to prevent a forfeiture of such claims.

Meanwhile, a pros pector named Dick Houghton brought down from the'Lone Star claim on Gold Hill samples of rock carrying a mineral he thought was galena. Stratton ex amined it with his glass, doubted its be ing galena, but saw in the rocks cubes of rusty gold. The socalled galena was telluride of gold, but none of these men knew it. "But the free gold was enough to in duce Stratton to go up and locate a claim next to Houghton's Lone Star. This is, now the Gold and Globe prop erty. J3n June of the. same year, Strat ton and Fred Troutman found rich gold float at the head or Wilson's Creek, but found no vein, although they trenched for It, but the trenches paral lel a lode which is now called the Vin dicator and Legal Tender. "About this time an old prospector named Bill Fernay came along with some float from what is now Battle mountain, and Stratton and Troutman then located the Black Diamond near the find, which is now one of the Port land holdings. Next day, Stratton found a granite outcrop down the hill and located it, but didn't think much of It as it only assayed $3 to $4. Sud denly it flashed on him that the crranite outcrop must be a lode.

Chippewa and Other Prop erties to be Worked Ore to Orogrande. There is considerable activity in the Organ range of New Mexico. Old prop erties that have lain idle for years, owned by eastern people are now to be started up. One of these, the Chippewa, The Snow Storm group, consisting ot seven gold claims, in the north end of the Dos Caberos mining district, Co chise county, Ariz., is owned by Pence Bros., of this olty. The properties are northeast of the famous Commonwealth mine, at Pearce, separated by a narrow valley from the latter. George Pence and Milton Pence purchased these properties 18 months ago, from the cowboy discoverers, when there was only a ten foot prospect hole on the Snow Storm No. 1. Cowboy Discoverers. ' "At that time," says Hr. Pence, there was great excitement all over south- eastern Arizona over the wonderfully Our new home, is progressing nicely.

J. McBrice and Brice Cawney, who are rich out-crops, and they lost no time In interested in the Chippewa and other claims, are on the ground inspecting the prope'rties with the intention of begin ning development work at once. They are also interested in the smelter in the Jarllla mountains and are planning to build a wagon road across the Organ Pass and over to the smelter at Jarilla. These young men are said to have abund ance of ready money to carry on the projected work. - Excelsior Mine. The Excelsior mine was successfully operated several years ago by R. Y. Anderson; a mining man of El Paso, who shipped many carloads of copper glance ore to the El Paso smelter. It was about the same time that he and William Hayden purchased the Torpedo mine from Foy Bros., and made it one of the greatest copper mines in the southwest.

Remember the name Doan's and take no other Sacramento Shaft To lie the Deepest In .uiHiricr topper Queen Lays Off Courtland lorcc. Bisbee, Ariz., Feb. 16. Sinking from the 1600-foot level has been started in the Sacramento shaft of the Copper Queen mining company. When the 1700-foot level will jbe reached, the Sacramento will be the deepest mine in the whole district. The tunnel under employing three shif'ts of men. The the Sacramento Hill has been started by. work is being done on contract, which was awarded to Messrs. Slater & An derson. At the Holbrook shaft the Copper Queen has made a rich strike of quart zlte, while excavating to encounter a big vein of copper located a short time ago. It is expected that the station on the 600-foot level at the Holbrook will be soon completed so the bie- pumps can be installed. In contrast with the extraordinary activity the company is showing in this district, either in developing new ground or in sinking operations, work has been suspended on the property lo cated in the Courtland district A. force of 100 men has been laid off. NEW MEXICO MAY HAVE t, , SECOND IiEADVILIiE Recent strikes of large deposits of lead-sine ore, the lead predominating, In . if ,Ferlllos mining district, leads to the belief that Xew Mexico is to have a second Leadville. i. 0liTeIn 52 feet 1vide was found at the 400 foot level, and another varying from six to 12 feet wide at the 100 foot level, carrying 12 percent lead values and S percent zinc The wide vein has two very rich streaks averaging seven feet wide. Close to 4000 feet of ore Is said to be In sight, with every Indica tion of increasing witji development. The owners are Bostoniaus and are or ganized as the Boston-Cerliios Mines corporation. A small concentrating mill of 200 ton capacity has been built on the ground. The ore is disseminated through a soft porphyry, and crushes easily. getting the properties. The record of the Commonwealth Us that it has pro duced $32,000,000 in gold in tlte past 10 years, the richest gold mine in Arizona It was also discovered by cowboy pros pectors. "There Is no question but what we have the same vein as the Commonwealth, which runs northeast erly toward our mines, dipping under the intervening narrow valley, and out cropping on our Mils again, and It runs over a mile through our Snow Storm claims. The quartz is identical and the values are the same. Development Work. "We have done about 250 feet of de velopment work, sinking an 80 foot shaft and three drifts, and ran a 105 foot tunnel or drift on the vein from the foot of the hill. We are continuing this drift, having arranged to run 200 feet this- year and ultimately will reach S00 feet, giving a vertical depth for stoping of 1000 feet. All our work has been on pay ore, vhere being con- i tlnual rich spots of wonderfully rich ore. We have over 100 tons of $40free milling gold ore on the dump, besides a large tonnage of lower grade ore never sorted. Our high grade runs j 5300, $400, $800 and $3600 gold a ton. All our ore carries values rrom & a ton up. Fissure Vein. "Thfc vein is a fissure, occurring in mfpa. schist. The vein matter is a soft ! n.iorfr Qvornsrlnp about two feet in four feet between walls. The ore is width, but the wider portions being oxidized at the surface, but shows some sulphides at the bottom of shaft. The strike of the veSn (like the Common wealth) is northeast and southwest. "Assays of the croppings taken at in tervals the entire length of the claims, a distance of a mile, showed values of from $5 to $18 gold per ton. May Put up Mill. "We' have done all this work with our own money and have never altempted to promote nor float stocks. Our idea is to develop and prove oir property up. and then we shall either put up a mill to treat our ores or be prepared to offer what is undoubtedly one of the best gold mines in Arizona." Mr. Pence exhibited a collection of quartz samples filled in every pore with native gold. tons of high grade ore are on the dump. It lis expected that the deal which the company has with eastern capitalists will be consummated soon. If so, de veloping will be done on a larger scale and the mine will be a steady producer. GOOD STRIKES OX THE H03IESTAKE AXD Q.UO VADIS For several weeks work has been go ing on in the Homestake mine in Eldo rado "pass," by the owners. Brown and Lillis. The property is south of Las Vegas and about two miles west of the Quo Vadis. Some very rich ore has just been struck. The vein matter is a de composed quartz, somewhat honeycomb ed and sprinkled with sulphides. Free gold is visible in the more heavily oxi dized portions. At the present depth the ledge shows a fin gage of pinkish cast which horns well, while the banded por tion has widened to about four feet, with average across the full width running from $12 to $38 a ton. On the Homestake and neighboring claims there is also a good showing of lead carbonate, carrying gold, which Is typical of that section. A picked sam ple of the Homestake ore assayed $2118 per ton. Several other Important discov eries have recently been made in the "pass," and acflve development work has commenced. work will be prosecuted with, vigor dur ing the coming summer. Rapid progress is being made in re constructing the placer mill just be low the big reservoir. Practically all of the dismantling has been completed and the work of rebuilding is now in pro gress.

Ihl Soledad mine, located in the Ajo mountains, from which several cars of ore have been shipped to the El Paso smelters, is to be sold to a syndicate of eastern capitalists. The property is well de veloped and at present a force of 40 men is at work on it. Ore Jodiea .are said to carry large values in silver and gold, and a vein of considerable sise has been recently encountered. TO START WORK SOOvT. Bisbee, Ariz.. Feb. Is. a meeting of the directors and stockholders of the Cochise Development company was held In Bisbee a few days ago. This com pany closed its property during the panic of 190S and since then the board of directors has been somewhat slow in taking a decision towards the reopening of the mine. The recent strike of rich ore made by the-Copper Queen at the Cochise mine has rendered the manage ment of the Cochise Development com pany more active and it is assured that the company will start developing in. the near future. or Lame Back DEVELOPMENT CONTINUES OX SANTA FE MINE Bisbee, Ariz., Feb. 16. About 900 feet of development work has been done on the Santa Fe mine and the property look's well, according to Col. A. D. Nanny, one of the owners. Two shafts, one on the Santa Fe and another on the Mintoyo claims have been sunk to a depth of 350 and 205 fet respective ly, while drifting work has proceeded satisfactorily. The drift on the Mintoyo, which is being driven to cut the main ledge, has encountered a large deposit of galena carrying silver and lead and assays of the ore show good returns in general yielding 29S ounces In sliver and about 7 percent in copper.
