OPAL MINE Nil

Experts Pronounce Opals
There Equal to Best
Australian Gems.
Silver City, If. SC, Feb. 22. The opal
mine situated 12 miles east of Silver
City, and one mile from Bayard sta
tion, on the Santa. Rita branch of the
Santa Fe railroad, is developing into
a first class property and indications
are tbat if may be one of tbe greatest
and richest opal mines in the United
States. Opals sent to Los Angeles,
alif to be cut and mounted show
the gems to be of first quality and
equal to the best Australian opals. The
opals cat -were practically taken from
the surface aad all experts declare
theT -will undoubtedly greatly improve
-with depth, and the possibilities are
that the Noble or Precious opal, the
most beautiful of the opal family,
-will be found.
The owners have located all the out
eroppings of opal and have covered
eight claims. Assessment work has
been completed and a shaft is now
being sunk and Hi down about 36 feet,
part of the way through talc, which
experts say is confirmed, by the find
ing of fiery gems scattered through
the talc. Black opal has been struck
and it. too, in the opinion of- ex
perienced opal miners, will improve
with depth.
The opal camp is well located, with
plenty of wood and water close at
mnd. A big spring gushes from ne
of the opal ledges and tbe water is
.-. tbe purest. The mine is destined
10 make Silver City famous for opal
sems as well as for gold; silver and
i opper.
To S4ak Shaft Deeper.
General manager Wayne, of the Mo
gallon Mines eompaby is busy with
a large force getting ready to sink
a shaft in the mine much deeper. The
big engine, en route to the mine, that
was mired down in the mud about two
weeks ago is now on its way to 3fo
gollon and will reach there in a few
days.
There is much development work
going on at the Maud S. mine. Some
of the big stockholders in the Hogollon
Mines company have been visiting the
property and are more than pleased
with the outlook.
The Phelps-Dodge people are doing
"much work at Tyrone, and if reports
are true, that camp will be as large
and as well built and equipped as
is the Santa Rita camp, before the
end of the year.

MILL TO BE BUILT AT

Benson. Aria., Feb. 22. Enough ore
has been encountered in the mine of
the Golden West company to justify
building a mill. Shipments are to be
made at once and it is expected that
the mill will be built soon and that
a railroad line will also be constructed.
Work is being done steadily on the

Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico, Feb. 22.
W. B. Pomeroy, manager of the Mina
Mexico, has just returned from a trip
to El Paso and Chicago, where he went
to confer with the officers of his com
pany. Mr. Pomeroy states that the
smelter has been shut down for a cou
ple of months, but that it is now get
ting in a large supply of coke and ex
pects to start the smelter the latter
part of this month.
The .Toledo smelter has been hold at
sheriffs sale. It is reported that tbe
new owsers are parties who were for
merly interested in the property, and
that they will shortly come out from
Toledo, O. to look over the ground, and
decide on the advisability of operating
the smelter.

A scarcity of feed along the road has
competed many of the freighters who
were packing ore from San Xavier to
Toledo to stop work, resulting in the
greatly reduced shipments to the El
Paso smelter. Recent rains in the
Taqui river region have been a great
blessing to the entire country, enable
the freighters to work their animals
again. At the presest time feed is be
ing shipped to Toledo from the Yaqui
valley.

Farmington, X. M.. Feb. 22. The
magic effect resulting from the oil
strike here last Monday is almost un
believable. While enjoying commercial
prosperity equal to the average New
Mexico town of 1200 people, the past
year or so;-and like the other towns .of
the same class throughout the new
state, looking 4rward to a predicted
bright future, new railroads, new Irri
gation projects and the like, nothing of
the sudden wave of prosperity which
hit this camp last Monday was dreamed
of.
Old man Mattox and son. Ernie, have
been desultorily gaging away at an
oil well propect a couple of years or
so nut nobody paid mucn attention to
it: bufof a sudden, a courier came full
speed into town carrying the news,
"Mattox has struck oil, and the
loungers on street corners suspended
whit ling matches, arose, stretched and
yawned "oh h 1." The wires took up
the report, the press gave space and
now the trains .autos and vehicles of
all sorts are tumping them in.
In a radius of five miles the land is
practically all staked already, while
a dozen surveying outfits daily add to
to the filed-on area. Many telegrams
and phone messages pour in asking for
confirmation of reports, aad placing or
ders for claims.
A telegram to the Farmington Lasd
and Investment company last night in
dicated that this discovery of oil would
start railroad building in tbe direction
of Farmington from tbe south to con
nect directly with El Paso, sooner thas
would any other event, and that dirt
would doubtless be flvinsr on that pro
ject so long looked for inside of M
days. It came from good authority.

It is expected that at Teast four new

30 days. One will be operated by a lo

rango, one from the Seven Lakes field
and one from Leadville.
The oil is pronounced of superior
quality and carries heavy percent in
