ANNOUNCEMENT.
After a continual connection with
the Era during- the past ten years,
the last three years of which the
paper has been under the manage
ment ot myself, it becomes my duty
to announce that, beginning April
1st, I will have no further connection
with the Era. For the first ten days
the paper will be in the hands of a
temporary manager, after which date
E. M. Miller, an experienced news
paper man of the state of Michigan,
will arrive to look after the business
permanently. During my connection
with the Era there has been times
when only the solid support of this
community enabled us to continue
the newspaper work especially dur
ing the destructive flood period and
I desire to thank those loyal citizens
and business men who staid with us
and helped to tide us oyer. Regard
ing the manner in whi;h the Era has
pleased the people of this community
and surrounding country, I will leave
to their judgment, realizing that at
times it is difficult to please eyery
body. However, I will state that I
have always endeavored to further
the interests of the Clif ton-Morenci
district in the best manner, even
though at times I may have made
mistakes. In leaving the Era I re
quest a continuation of the support
of the business men and citizens
of this district and hope that
the new editor will succeed in giving
the readers of the Era a better
paper in the future than in the past.
For the information of those who are
interested I wish to announce that I
will remain in Clifton permanently
and will engage in another line of
business. Mat Danenhader.
The Era has noticed that several of
our contemporaries are making a
practice ot copying articles from
other papers and giving them credit
for the same, when as a matter of
fact the articles originated in the
Era. The Era is glad that some of
its items are copied but it would like
to have credit for them once in a
while.
During the past few weeks the
matter of Clifton for the new couuty
seat of Greenlee county has been al
lowed to go unnoticed in the Era,
though this is no indication that our
people, or the Era has dropped the
fight. A skirmish is being made of
the entire section of the new. county
and already enough support has been
received to watrant the prediction
that when the election takes place
there will be no doubt of Clifton win
ning easily. Solid support comes
from every corner. The member
ship of the Clifton county seat club
is growing by leaps and bounds, the
exact number being withheld for the
protection of the club. The calling
of jurors and witnesses to Solomou
yille to attend the session ofthe dis
trict court will illustrate to some of
our citizens the great advantage of
having the county seat located at
home in the future. Especially so
when they will haye the opportunity
of expressing themselves with their
vote. Indications now point to a
heayy Clifton vote from both Morenci
and Metcalf, which together with the
solid vote from the upper section and
a good portion of the vote this side
of Duncan, helps to bt-ar out the im
pression of the Era. Regarding the
Clifton vote, we should not expect to
lose a single vote no more s than
Duncan should expect to cast a yotc
for Clitton. Any Clifton man who is
thinking of voting for Duncan should
put his thinking cap on and imagine
what good it is going to do him if he
is called to attend court awav from
home. If he can find any individual
financial benefit he will see matters
in a different light than ninety-nine
per cent of the people.
The Duncan Arizonan this week
published a long history of the editor
of the Morenci Leader, setting forth
the fact that be is a strong democrat
and that the complexion of the
Leader will be democratic when the
campaign rolls around. As the
Leader has always been republican,
Mr. Roberts should announce
what the policies of the Leader will
be.

MINING NOTES
Pertaining to Clifton-Morenci Dis
trict and Surrounding Camps.
Charley Stevens, one of the heavy
claim holders of the upper end of the
Metcaif section, came down from his
home at Garfield the first part of this
week. Charley is one of the old time
mining men of the Clifton-Morenci
district and he is in on some of the
most promising claims iu the district.
He has been doing a considerable
amount of development work on the
properties of the Stevens Copper
company as well as the properties of
other companies in which he is inter
ested heavily. He reports that a
number of valuable strikes have been
made in his section during the past
several months and if he is able to
continue development work he is con
fident that new producers will soon
be added to the list. In past years
Charley has mude many shipments of
high grade ores to the local smelters,
which have paid handsome profit,
eyen though transportation and treat
ment charges have been high. He is
considerably interested in the ex
tension of the Shannon-Arizona rail
road from Metcalf to Garfield, as in
that event he would be enabled to
ship a large tonnage of copper ore
that at the present date will not pay
on account of high transportation.
It seems that chances for the exten
sion of the railroad are good as the
Shannon is also interested in mining
claims above Metcalf that could be
worked to advantage. There is an
other advantage in the extension as
it trill mean more ore for the Shan
non, both of its own and custom, and
besides the railroad would realize a
revenue from transportation. These
instances taken into consideration
seem to insure the extension of the
road within the near future.
New Improvements by Shannon Copper
Company.
The Shannon Copper company is
now pushing construction work on its
new ore bins on the hill, just above
the present concentrating plant.
Connection will be made with the
new railroad and the ore cars will
travel above the bins for the con
venient unloading of the cars. The
bins will bo 100 feet long, divided in
the middle for first and second-class
ores. Below the new bins will be in
stalled a new crushing plant of
modern design and huge power. All
of the machinery will be new and
ivhen completed this company will
ha re one of the smoothest propositions
in the southwest.
From the crusher the ore will be
carried on a large conveyor belt,
hence it will be seen that every ad
vantage of cheap operation will have
been taken. The building of this im
provement will require a few months.
Since operating its new railroad
the Shannon has been quite successful
in supplying sufficient ore and trains
have been operated almost every day,
even though the roadbed is not
thoroughly packed. So far but one
accident has occurred on the road,
Jue to the breaking of one of the
-xels of an ore car which was heavily
loaded. Outside of a close call and
slight delay no damage was done. By
the time the wet season arrives the
roadbed will be packed to such an
extent that there will be no cause of
delays except by wastiovers, which
may occur frequently along the upper
end of the road.
ARIZONA--MORENCI COMPANY.
Bréate Record With Keystone Cham
Drili--Securing Good Values Proving
lip District.
In an interview this week with J.
O. Btyljr, superintendent of the
Arizona-Morenci Copper company,
tne Era reporter learned some valu
able information of interest to the
nining interests of the Clifton-Mo-renci
district, and also of interest to
those unfamiliar with the excellent
qualities of the Keystone churn
drills. Just a few months ago the
Arizona-Morenci company com
tnenced active operations in this dis
trict by installing the famous Key
stone churn drills on its mining prop
erties, one No. 3 size drill on the
Celtic group and another of similar
size on the Keystone group. The
drill on the Critic group was the
first to b started and it was placed
in charge of Albert- Moore, a driller
who has been connected with the
Keystone drill company the past
twenty-six years. He was sent here
to make a record for the Keystone
drill and that he lias made good will
le seen in the latter paragraphs.
The drill was located on what is
known to be the hardest rock in this
Jistrict and for the first 298 feet an
average of 10 feet every shift of ten
auurs was made. The company is
now working two shifts of ten hours
each and frooi 300 feet depth has
been averaging 25 to 30 feet. At the
:j 0 mark considerable trouble was
oaued by the caving of the ground
which at times would stick the drill,
but the management had the hole
cased for 300 feet,' since which time
sinking has advanced rapidly.
The capacity of the drill is rated
for 4J0 feet, however, the Arizona
Morenci company has smashed all
previous world records as the hole at
this date is down 700 ieet and is still
holding up the average of 2" to 30
fjet daily for the two shifts. At 701)
feet the drilling machine is making
the same number of strokes per min
ute as it did at 200 feat, hence there
is every reuson to expect that before
this drill is taken olf it will reach the
1000-foot mark. At 700 feet the
ground is softer and there is plenty
of water in the hole, which is quite
an advantage in favor of the drill.
The company is just in receipt of
1200 feet of new cable which will be
put on the drum with the intention
of continuing sinking until the full
amount is used, barring unlikely acci
dent to the hole.
The present depth of the hole re
veals yaluable information as it is
now about 1300 feet lower than the
apex of the Shannon hill and about
800 feet deeper than the lowest work
ings of the Shannon mine. What
the Arizona-Morenci company has
discovered in value at the bottom of
this hole has not been made public,
but it is reported that the old theory
of our ore bodies not extending be
low the surface is smashed to etern
ity, and the company has met with
such encouragement that it will con
tinue prospect work on a much larger
scale in the near future. Positions
have already been chosen for new
machines of larger capacity, which
will be installed at an early date.
One position is on the Clipper shaft,
from which a considerable amount of
18 per cent, copper ore has been ship
ped. At the present date the great
est amount of development work is
planned for the Celtic group, which
is located in what is known to be the
best portion of this district. From
indications it is quite likely that this
company will make the most valuable
discoveries ever made in this country.
Prospectors Visit Globe Mining District.
Wood Poland and Charley Nelson,
two of the old time prospectors of
this district and who own a number
of valuable prospects in the Green
lee mining district, returned home
last week from a visit to the Globe
district. They made the trip on
horseback and made an inspection of
practically every mining proposition
in that section. They were familiar
with a number of the properties of
the Globe country before going there,
but report that they found the min
eral belt to be much larger than they
had expected. Especially were they
interested in the large amount, of
development work that is being done
by all of the companies operating at
Globe, reporting that outside of the
producers hundreds of men are em
ployed on outside and new work.
Valuable mines have been discov
ered in places where in former years
it was not thought that ore bodies
existed, and the end is not yet. Un
like this district, they found that
new companies in the Globe country
never start without the intention of
spending several hundred thousand
dollars beforeistriking ore. Although
the Globe district is producing hard
ly one-half as much copper as the
Clifton-Morenci district, the camp is
much better aDd business greater.
Messrs. Poland and Nelson are old
timers at the mining game and know
a good thing when they see it, and
they are of the opinion that the
Globe section is a good one, though
in drawing a comparison between the
Globe and Clifton-Morenci districts
they are of the opinion that with the
expenditure of one-half the capital
in development work the Clifton dis
trict would produce far grander re
sults than have ever been produced
in our neigebor camp. This opinion
is the same as many others and when
the outside mining people become
acquainted with this fact we will
haye a new era in the mining world.
They found the prices of prospects
in the Globe country to be obtainable
only by an outlay of cash that would
develop a number of claims in this
district, but strange to say this dis
trict has never been given proper
consideration. There are prospects
in the Clifton-Morenci district that
can be secured by people who mean
business for a mere trifle and as a
matter of fact they will have a better
chance of striking larger ore bodies.
In point of size Messrs. oland and
Nelson report that the Clifton-Morenci
district has more than fifty per
cent, the best of Globe. These are
facts which should be investigated by
capitalists who desire good mining
investments.
NEW ENGLAND CO.
Meeting With Financial Success and Soon
to Resume Operations.
Although the arrangement for the
raising of finances for the New Eng
land and Clifton copfier company has
proceeded slowly it will be important
information to those interested to
know that at this dat- one-half of
the necessary funds have already
l:een raised and the other half is cer
tain to come within the next thirty
day?, barring any unforeseen occur
rence. The business affairs of the
company is now in the hands of a live
committee and the finances are being
subscribed by some of the wealthiest
people of the eastern states and
foreign countries. The advisory com
mittee has announced that there is
no doubt of the company raising
sufficient funds to satisfy all indebted
ness and also continue development
work on a large scale. This is good
news to the creditors of the company
as well as the local people who have
laith in the property and want to see
it go ahead. Sullicient funds are now
on hand to more than cover all press
ing debts.
Harry Armstrong, who is the local
manager, will be retained in his posi
tion as he is thoroughly familiar with
the property and a hustler besides.
The alfairs of the company will be
conducted on a mu.:b different plan
than ever before, all of the high
salaried officers beiug committed
from the list Since the company
has been waiting on the finence mat
ter, Mr. Armstrong has retained a
small force of men on the Copper
King property and has continued the
smeltor contract, miking regular
shipments. While continuing this
contract be has made good and in-,
steau ot losing money on eacu snip-
I ment he has succeeded in showing a
balance on the company side 'ufficient
to continue development work. This
work is being done in a first-class
manner and where possible, ore is
being blocked out for future refer
ence. This is quite a good showing
over the old management and as soon
as the company has capital to spend
a large force will be added and de
velopment carried on in a manner
that it will be of benefit to the com
pany. It is understood that the com
pany will not attempt to continue
heavy ore shipments to the smelter,
as the it expects to operate a
plant of its own, in which event the
company will be in an independent
position.
As soon as all plans are consum
mated development work will be
pushed on all of the claims of the
company in this district. This class
of development will in all probability
give the company better resources,
as it is known that some of the out
side claims have sufficient showings
exposed to indicate the discovery of
large ore bodies. Especially is this
true of the Antietam mine, which
promises to be one of the big pro
ducers of the Clifton-Morenci district.
The people who are mostly inter
ested in the success of the New Eng
land now have more reason to feel
certain of its success than ever be
fore and if given a chance, will make
one of the biggest companies in this
section. They have the claims and
the ore.
Miss Ifollister, W. C. T. U. Lecturer,
Coming to Clifton.
The wife, the mother is the guard
ian spirit of the home; everything
that gives to it the home feeling is
due to her. All the material com
for'.s, a cozy place to rest and well
cooked meals depend upon her care
ful attention. The air of culture
and refinement about the home are
of her making; the moral atmos
phere, that which makes a home a
bayen secure from the worries, toil
and evils of the outside world, is as
sured by her fidelity to duty. But
every woman finds many times that
influences oyer which she has no con
trol enters her home rendering her
but a creature of circumstances
rather than master of the situation .
Looking a little beyond her own nar
row walls shows a woman that what
comes to one home may come to all
and what she considered a personal
matter is really a community inter
est. Why should not women get to
gether and discuss the subjects that
come home to them, such as the sani
tation, education and moral condi
tions of the community. Men no
longer fight battles singlehanded but
with great and well organized armies
and women are learning the power of
organized work and are uniting to
make their influence more far reach
ing and their work more effectual.
Such an organization is the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union, the
largest society composed wholly of
women in existence. Its various de
partments include every subject ot
interest to women and its work can
readily be adapted to local needs.
Among its members have been en
rolled many noble and celebrated
women whose lives are full of en
couragement, instruction and in
spiration to its new members.
The Territorial W C. T. U. has 1
secured Miss Hollster, of Mississippi,
to make a lecture tour ot Arizona.
She will reach Clifton Friday, April
1st, and lecture in the Methodist
Church at 7:30 p. m. I he lecture is
free to all and the ladies are es
pecially invited to come out and hear
Miss Hollister.
The membership ot the W. C. T. U.
in Clifton is small, largely due to the
fact that many women who have
taken an active part in the work
elsewhere, feel that as they do not
expect to remain in Clifton very
long it is not worthwhile to join.
None of us think that we are going
to spend the rest of our life in Clif
ton, yet why should not the time
spent here be as full ot duties well
done as anywhere? Why should our
stay here be a blank or a blotted
page in our lives? Contriuuted.

HILL'S FLAT WANTS WALL.
A Controversy Between Property Owners
and A. C. Company.
Ever since the Arizona Copper com
pany commenced the dumping of
tailings and slimes on the lower end
of Hill's Addition there has been some
talk of the necessity of protecting
property interests in that section of
town by the building of a slag or con
crete rock wall. Before the company
commenced its operations on the flat
it was understood that the river'bank
was to be protected with a slag wall
and the company took up the matter
of securing a right-of-way along the
river bank. The land was secured
through Henry Hill, who failed to
secure the proper agreement to
protect the interests of the individual
property owners, and in getting the
right-of-way the company wanted
about fifty feet instead of twenty
five which the property owners agreed
to give free of cost. This difference
resulted in the company not getting
the right of-way and the matter was
dropped as far as the company was
concerned.
The company has been having a lot
of trouble with the farmers of the
lower valley and when it became
their duty, by order of the supreme
court, to remove the tailings from the
river a large pumping plant was in
stalled at the concentrator and a pipe
line laid to the flat, where reservoirs
were constructed on the low ground
and the work of filling in was com
menced. In their good feeling to
wards the success of the company the
property owners did not object seri
ously to the company filling in the
ground to a level with their ground
and especially so when they were
under the impression that the river
bank would be protected. The work
of filling in has continued and at this
date the bank of the tailings reservoir
is higher than the ground adjoining
it on the east. This matter has been
allowed to go alony until last week,
when it was learned that the A. C.
company had applied to the town
council for a franchise granting the
privilege of the laying of another
pipe line to the lower end of the fiat
through which the oxide tailings are
to be pumped from the leaching plant.
This caused the property owners of
the entire Hill addition to realize
that it was the intention of the com
pany to make a permanent dumpirrg
ground on the flat and that the tail
ings would be piled up continually
until they would be far above the
other ground. If allowed to go this
far without protecting the river bank
with a solid breakwater or wall it
would mean certain destruction to
property in that section the first time
that high water came down the river,
as at the present date the lower end
of the river bank is practically open.
As a result a large number of the
property owners of the flat held a
meeting at the South Clifton school
house last Thursday evening to dis
cuss the situation and see what could
be done in the way of protection.
The ronuitions were discussed
thoroughly and it was the consensus
of opinion that something should be
done. The feeling of those present
was very friendly towards the com
pany and all of them felt certain that
the company would not hesitate in
agreeing to come lorth with proper
j protection to the river bank, as they
no doubt realized that the filling in
of the low grouud and the narrowing
of the river channel would mean
trouble the first time that a flood
visited this section. A committee,
consisting of George Webster, I. N.
Stevens and C. O. Uillingsley was ap
pointed to take up the matter with
Mr. Norman Carmichael, general
manager of the company, and an
other committee, consisting of George
Reitzer, C. W. Beck and Thos. Simp
son, was appointed to interview the
people who owned laud on which the
wall would be built and arrange for
the securing of the iight-of way.
Both committee? were instructed to
act immediately and report at the
next meeting, set for Saturday night.
G. W. Williams. Sr., as chairman, and
C. A. Van Dorn, secretary, were the
other selections that were made.
At h'at irday night's meeting the
right-ul-.vay vommittee reported ihat
i here noiid'be no difficulty in secur
ing a t-venty-ti ve-foo'. vight-of way
for the wall. And the company com
mittee leporleil that they had failed
to receive any lefinite answer lrom
the compa iv, ecept that the m itter
would be taken up with the board of
director immediately. The property
owners then derided that it would bt
advi.-able to secure a more definite
understanding and instructed the
committee to confer again wills the
company officials, which they did on
Monday morning and reported Mon
day night, and witli furlhcr irrsLruc
i ions to meet with the town council
and endeavor to haye action on the
franchise postponed until word was
received from the board of directors.
The second meeting with the com
pany resulted in a better understand
ing, though the committee was in
formed that nothing could be done
until word was received from the
directors, wbich would require at
least fifteen days.
The committee then attended the
meeting of the town council Monday
afternoon and after explaining the
conditions requested the council to
postpone action on the franchise until
the board of directors had been heard
from. After discussion the couucil
decided unanimously to lay the mattt r
on the table as requested by the prop
erty owners and also delegated the
entire town council as a committee
to visit the reservoir and make a
personal inspection of the conditions.
At this date good feeling exists be
tween the people and the company,
although it is the intention of the
property owners to make every elTort
to secure proper protection.
To those who are disinterested in
this preposition it would seem that
there should be no difficulty in the
people and the company getting to
gether antt it is Doped that the mat
ter will be closed by the directors
aoing tne iigni tmng.
