CLIFTON, &EAHAM COUNTY, ARIZONA, FRIDAY. MAY 20, 1910 NUMBER 6 ERA Sox Owner Says Cobb is the Greatest Player Wagner Is, Asserts Clarke of Pittsburg When Charley Comisky, owner Of the Chicago White Sox declared in a signed article in a Chicago news paper that Ty Cobb is the greatest of all baseball ptayer, he reviyed a sub ject that has been the cause of many heated arguments among baseball fans for years. Other club owners and managefs( with the exception of Fred Clarke of the Pittsburg Pirates, have not dis puted Comiskey's statement, buc Clarke, though mentioning no names, plainly means Hans Wagner whence says, "I think I am associoted with the greatest of all baseball players." Cobb is a modest young man and he took the great compliment from the owner of the Sox with good grace Incidentally he smashed out the hit that won the game for his team the next day. While putting Cobb in first place, Comiskey showed the true sport-man ship for which he is noted, when he placed Johnny Evers, second base men for the Chicago Cubs in second position. It made no difference with the "Old Roman" that Evers plays for a team that is the rival of the Sox in Chicago. Evers, however, didn't agree with Comiskey concerning the greatest player. Little John boldly declared he considered his own chief, Frank Chance, the greatest baseball player. "Look at Chance's duties and the way he does them," said the Trojan. "He is a great manager and a great player besides. Cobb is a wonder, but I would rather have Chance on my team." That's a pretty compliment for one to pay his boss, but it is an indication of what the Chicago players think of the "Peerless Leader." Only a short time ago Joe Tinker, the Cub short stop, was quoted as saying that it wasn't the absence of Kling that kept the Cubs out of the champion ship last season, but the injuries that prevented Chance playing in many games was the real cause for the Pirates beating Chicago. There is no doubt that Chance has a wonderful influence over his men. Once in a while he has to tack on a fine to bring some of them to terms, as he did a few days ago when he as sessed Heine Zimmerman and Floyd Kroh $100 each for not being in bed at 22 o'clock. But the Cub crew as a rule needs no such reminrers that Chance is the boss. Chance had some plain things to say about Johnny Kling a few days ago if reports from St. Louis are cor rect. Here. is what be is supposed to have said: "I guess Kling is worrying more about his case than the Chicago ball club is. I am perfectly satisfied with my catching staff as it stands now and I don't care whether Kling comes back or not. Tom Needbam has shown up so well in the last two days that it would be a shame to keep bim on the bench all season. "Of course we will give Kling a uniform and a chance to play ball if he does pay bis fine and come back to us, but it is a matter of indiffer ence to me. If be wants to stay in Kansas City it is his own lookout. You may be sure the Cubs will not beg him to get back into the game. I am sick and tired of the whole Kling business, but tickled to death that we have enough catchers, and good ones, too, to get along without him." To which Kling is reported to have replied: "I don't think I ever will play with Chicago now. I am not interested in any outlaw league, as reported from Chicago, but I do not think I will play with Chicago. I will decide .definitely in a few days. "As far as Chance is concerned, I care nothing about what he says. But I guess the Cubs can win the pennant without me, anyway." There is something behind all this Kling business that the fans cannot understand. The truth is likely to come out some of these days and then there will be a bigger sensation than ever Cactus League Chatter. From El Paso Times. "For every Friday's Ladies' Day at home." As runs the popular air, or something similar, so it is to be in baseball circles from this day on. The Times has the great pleasure of announcing to the fair feminine fans of El Paso that "without money and without price," they may witness every other Friday a game that is played here by any two teams of the Cactus league, the mighty contests of which Washington Park will be witH strength, and ease they always please TWO HORSE OVERALLS MADE BY LEVI STRAUSS CO. CO. the battleground during the coming summer. If there is anything more inspiring to a ball player than to have a srand stand filled with fair fans frantically rooting for the home team, it yet re mains to be heralded a3 the greatest j discovery of modern times.. Nor is j there any mere man who can show a : tithe of the enthusiasm that can be ' developed by a small bit of feminin- ity in a white, llulfy summertime dress, once she has been stung by the baseball bug. Douglas' Demons are now hanging on the bottom of the Cactus league percentage, and if El Paso's fift--nine does not 1owt them into still deeper depths of the cellar of ob livion, several thousand people in this neighborhood will want to know the reason why. If there is any difference of opin ion among the fans of El Paso re garding the question of clean base ball, it has failed to develop. The vie'ws expressed in the Times regard ing the failure of Goyheneix, as um pire, to maintain discipline in Sun day's game, have apparently voiced the sentiment of those familiar with the circumstances. Nor is Cananea held blameless in the matter, and a repetition of the abuse and profanity indulged in by the visitors will mean that stringent and immediate meas ures will be taken to prevent the game being further marred in that manner. "Every time they bringanother um pire here, it shows how good Mackey is," said one of El Paso's enthusiasts, with reference to some of the feat ures of the game last Sunday with Cananea. Mackey occasionally makes a questionable decision, and there are few umpires who do not make them ofteo, but there is never any doubt in the minds of players and patrons of the game that be is in charge of the diamond and will en force discipline and protect both teams. Mackey is due to umpire the games to be played here this week with Douglas. One of the directors of the local baseball team stated, with reference to the umpire question, that he felt that neither the public nor the management would stand for another game to be played under the conditions which prevailed Sunday. From which it is inferred that a stand will be taken with Walling of the Cananea team, in charge of the umpire question for the Cactus league, that either Mackey or some other umpire more competent than Goybenei::, will be insisted upon here. Goyheneix is not wanted as an um pire in El Paso either by the man agement or the members of the White Sox team. Personally there is nothing against the little fellow, nor is there objection of any conse quence to his decisions. It is his in ability to assume and keep control of the diamond during a game, as was proved by his actions Sunday, which has brought the disfavor of the team and the management. Not every individual on the Can anea team is a "dirty" ball player, as the term is used in the game, but the plain truth is that as a team they are hardly to be classed as the fair est and least abusive of the Cactus league. In Sunday's game four or five of the visitors, not once or twice, but througtiout the .game, called the umpire every vile name in the calen dar, and frequently included one or more of the White Sox. It was a continuous performance, perhaps not noticeable from the grand stand, but easily heard by the players and thosp near them. It was when this tirade of abuse was at its height that Hizznmps fail ed to show backbone. He submitted to abuse continually, though aware that he had full control of the field In the beginning of the season is the time to enforce discipline, but there was none in Sunday's game. It is for this lack of energy in pro tecting the players and discharging his duties that the management of the locals wired Walling, who has the firing and hiring of umpires, that Mackey was wanted here for the games, to be played the latter part of the week.

Prescott Courier- At a depti- of eighty feet in the main shaft beicg sunk on one of the claims owned by the Skull Valley Mining and Milling compaDy three feet of ore was en countered last week. The shaft has been sunk several feet since and the paystreak shows strong and perma nent and samples were brought to Hrescott by C. E. Williams, aa' ector of the company. The assay returns are better than expected and sinking is being pushed with more than usual vigor. Florence Blade-Tribune: Billy Davidson, of Superior, has located temporarily in Ray. He and James Neary still hold their- copper claims at Superior and have discovered on the initial claim of the group, an east and west fault fissure, similar to that of the Silver Queen which lies about one mile to the north on the same ore zone. The Queen fissure has been prospected to a depth of 00 feet and shows, in the lower levels, remarkable values in silver and copper.. The same amount of development work on the Davis Nearv fissure should show the same results. i Kingman ';ner: Joe Prisk and Charles Perdue have a carload of ore from the Home Pastime mine, at Mineral Park, at the Needles smelter. This ore was taken out during the past two months and is said to be very rich. The leasors on i his property have been .offered $15. 000 for their lease during the past week, but refused the offer. Owing to the heavy bod- of water in the mine, sinking was stopped at the present level, but it is the intention of the owners and leasers to sink be low that level as soon as possible. A pump will have to be put in to handle the water, as a bucket will not do the work with the present appli ances. Florence Blade-Tribune: Robert Cadie was down from his Box Canyon mining camp last week. He has just completed the work of hoistsng a large amount of waste and ore from the 100-foot level of the Arizona King mine which had been left there by leasers. The mine is now clean and looks well in the lower workings. At one point in the 100-foot level the vein shows a width of ten feet, and at the bottom of a 50-foot winze sunk from this level -hows a width of eight feet. The level, which is over 100 feet long, is all in ore. At the north end the ore streak contracted, but expanded again after a few feet had been shot out. The owner, C. W. Werner, is preparing to patent the claim and its extensions. Phoenix Mining Journal: E. L. Griffin has a contract to drive a crosscut tunnel a distance of 300 feet in the mine of the Telurium Mining and Smelting company, of which A. J. Chandler is principal owner, north of Mesa, Arizona, of which he has al ready completed 206. The tunnel is run in a mountain 500 feet high, the tunnel being just above the water evel. The ledges on which the four teen claims of the company are located can be traced on the surface for over a mile, and fully a mile of outcrop is located bv the company. At a distance of seventy feet, a vein of sulphide ore was cut that assays $15 a ton in gold. This vein where opened at the sur face was only four feet wide and had lower values. Kingman Miner: Wonderful good fortune seems to be attending the men who for years have been trying to develop that most wonderful of districts, the Weaver. The latest re ports, which are said to be from re liable sources, are to the effect that a strike of extremely rich ore has been made in the Devonshire mine which is being operated by E. L. Bartholomew and James Rees. The report says that the pay streak is about two and a half feet in thick ness and samples $00 to the ton, also that a small streak about an inch and a half is almost half gold. Messrs. Bartholomew and Rees own a half interest in the property and have a bond and lease on the other half which belongs to the Gilepie heirs. It is said that Bartholomew and Rees will ship some of the ore and expect to ship enough to pay the heirs for their interest before the purchase price is due. Bisbee Extension: At the Hisbee Extension, which lies midway be tween Tombstone and Bisbee, a station is being cut at the 700-foot mark. The shaft is down to the NllO foot level, but as it has encountered a little more water than the boilers can handle, the management has de cided to drift on the 700-foot level.

Copper is dull and prices are sag i cing slightly. Lake is 12 to 13 cents i and electrolytic is 12? to 12J cents per pound. The report of the Cop per Producers' association for the month of April, trtiich will probably appear as usual next Tuesday, is ex pected to show a considerable in crease in the surplus. Exports last month, 13,062 tons', were smaller than those of any preceding month since May, 1907. The total exports of the first four- months this year, nowever, were 84,862 tons, comparing with 82,233 tons in the corresponding period last year. Foriegn advices I state that German and British cop per consumption are increasing, but indications are that in France there will be a slight decrease during the coming few months. The general business reaction, which appears to be under way in this country, proba bly means a slight decline in the American consumption also. Unless sometffing happens soon to stimulate consumption the price of copper will probably be marked down to 12 cents. The history of the trade shows conclusively that whenever copper has been available at 12 eents or lower the consumption has enor mously increased, both in this coun try and abroad. In only eight years out of the past thirty has the price of copper failed to average over 12 cents per pound, and the low prices occurred following the collapse of the Secretan syndicate in 1885 and 18Ó6, and during the business panic extending from 1892 to 1897. The Amalgamated corner collapsed in 1901 with approximately as large a surplus of copper as there is at pres ent, yet the average price in 1902 was about 12 cents to 13f cents in 1903. The trouble at present is that a surplus ot copper accumulated dur ing the 1907 panic period, and since then production has increased in a little more rapid ratio than consump tion. Although this country is using ibout as much copper as at any pre- vious time i i its history, consumption has not increased as rapidly as it would have had it not been for the ambition of leading politicians to regulate the country's business. Efforts to effect an agreement for a curtailment of output by the larg est producers were begun last year, and for a time some progress was made: but recently the negotiations were brought to an abrupt termina tion. I understand that Anaconda and the most of the other large pro ducers are now arranging to increase their monthly output. It would ap pear, however, that Calumet & Hecla and Phelps, Dodge & Co. are still curtailing somewhat. The large and rapidiy increasing production of Utah Copper and Nevada Consoli dated is the most important factor in the situation. These two com panies, including Boston Consolidated and Cumberland Ely, have produced in the past three years by far the greater portion of the copper which now figures as the world's surplus. If the price of copper drops to 12 rents I believe there will be heavy foreign buving, and that consump tion the world over will so largely in crease that it will soon absorb the existing surplus and put the market in a much stronger statistical posi tion. At the moment it does not ap oear possible that the average price of copper will be as high as 13 cents this year: but the expanding busi ness activity, which will result from a continued increase in the world's output of gold and good crops, should make a market for all of the copper that will come from the mines in 1911 and 1912 at 13 cents, or a higher price per pound. The copper metal market is undergoing a severe test, which is likely to continue for two or three years longer, after which there should be a considerable ldvince in prices. The current in creasing production promises to cul minate in 1914, and the two or three years following may see a recurrence of the metal market conditions ex perienced in 1906, when a practical famine existed and the metal sold as high as 26 cents per pound. Prices declined continously during the early part of the week, but at the moment, a rally is under way. Speculative accounts have been liquidated almost to the last share, and low prices are attracting invest ors and long pull speculators. De spite the rather blue outlook for the mlital market, copper shares are likely to have a further rally. Specu lation in mining stocks will continue, notwithstanding the present de pression. The developments of the coming few months is likely to cause ousiderable buying of the stocks of the so-called "porphyry" companies, hicliare making an increasing out- Lion Fondles A Child.

A lodge with perhaps the greatest membership of any ever organized in Bisbee was that instituted by A. S. Barrett last week, when about 200 enrolled themselves in the local nest of the Order ot Owls. The Owls promise at first shot to take rank with the most active of them now in Bisbee, and the officers elected are sufficient to guarantee this as well as a good time occasion ally.
