Special Assay Office Building.
Work was commenced this week on
a new assay office building, located
below the A. C. general office. It will
be constructed of brick and will be
used as a special laboratory by chief
assaver. F. N. Flynn. It will not be a
large structure, but will accommodate
the purposes for which it is intended
special work. The old assay office
building-, which has recently been
remodeled in every particular, will
remain at its present location. The
most of the new apparatus and sup
plies have arrived and are being in
stalled as rapidly as possible.
Repairs for A. C. General Office.
The general office of the Arizona
Copper company Is being repaired
this week and the office force is work
ing under difficulties. Both stories of
the building will receive a general
overhauling. The old plastering,
which was badly in need of repairs, is
being removed and an entire new
dressing will Le given. A change in
the stairway is also being made and
when completed the building will

Mrs. B. G. Bianes was taken to the

There will be an ice cream, food

dition to the building is completed
and when the office forces are again
settled they will have much more
room and more convenient quarters.
The couipany will have one of the
best office buildings of any mining
company in Arizona.
Council On Fire Insurance Rates.
One of the matters of local inter
est that will receive the attention of
t he town council is a reduction in the
fire insurance rates of Clifton since
the council has gone to the expense
of installing about forty fire plugs
and purchasing a large amount of
hose and several hose carts. A list
will be made of all plugs, connected
with the Clifton, Shannon and A. C.
water main, showing exact locations
and forwarded to the board of
iré underwriters in support of the
request that will be made for a re
duction in rates. The lire protection
improvements have all been made
and the town now has better tire pro
tection than the majority of Arizona
camps, hence it is thought that when
the board realizes this there will be
no trouble in securing a reduction.

Another Trophy For Gun Club.
M. H. Kane, one of the enthusiastic
members of the Clifton Gun club, is
in receipt of a communication from
D. W. King, special representative
of the Ballasite Powder company,
informing him that the Ballasite
company has forwarded to the secre
tary of the club a handsome trophy.
Tlio Irnllho will be hull? UD aS H
-' l J n
nrize for the member of the Clifton i
gun club making the highest average
in a certain number of shots. The
shootinp- schedule will be arranged
similar to the former trophy shoot 1
of the local club, which will give the
poorer marksmen the same chance to
win as the better ones. The shooter
will handicap himself each time he
shoots. If he shoots a high score one
day his average will be hifh for the
next shoot and if he shoots low at
one shoot his average will be low
next shoot. By this method every
body has an equal chance; the low
average shooters getting a "handicap
of added birds each time. The con
test will prove interesting and the
club members are oiling their
guns and getting ready for business
at once.
