THE GILPIN OBSERVER.
VOL. XII.
The Observer Mining Department.
TO START UP AGAIN.
L. C. Snyder et al. of the Egyptian
group of mines on Quartz hill, have
hauled n quantity of wood to that prop
erty and resumed work again the first of
this week. The mine had been closed
down on account of the drifted snow and
bad weather.
PKKIGO MILL RUNNING.
John Powers of Black Hawk left Sun
day for Perigo with the intention of
starting up the 30 rapid drop s:amp mill
at that place. Mr. Collins, the manager,
has had a quantity of wood hauled to
tho mill, and also coal from Black Hawk.
Work at the Perigo mine is still going
forward, the underground workings be
ing looked after by Mr. E. M. Messiter,
formerly of tho Running Lode group of
veins in Black Hawk.
KANSAS DISTRICT.
Saturday Charley Peterson was in
Black Hawk from Lump Gulch attending
to business matters. He says that the
mining outlook at Gilpin as also in Kan
sas district, the latter between the Mid
dle Boulder and Jenny gulch, is good.
The Reward mine, worked by Warner
Miller and others, employs 15 miners.
The veiu has been opened by a deep cut,
which is about 18 feet deep from grass
roots, which has disclosed 18 inches of
fine crevice matter. An assay made from
a sample gave values of 8180 per ton, in
gold and silver. The miners use snow
shoes in going to and coming from their
work. There are several promising pros
pects in that section of Gilpin county.
FllO 31 CARIBOU.
Matt Jelinkes, former underground
former underground foreman of the
Cook Gold Mining company’s property
on Bobtail Hill, came over from Caribou,
Boulder county last Saturday. He re
ports a vast amount of snow through
out that section, which has retarded
mining. There is a scarcity of wood for
\fuel at the mines. Tho company work
ing the Boulder County mino at Caribou
is hauling coal from Boulder for use at
that property. He predicts that tho
coming season will be one of the most
active in tho history of Grand Island
-district. He returned Tuesday.
[S The Boulder County is credited with
ion output in January of 900 tons of ore
rand the present month tho production
will bo at the same ratio. Tho coal
teams, five in number, return to Boulder
with ore. Forty miners are employed,
working three eight hour shifts. A new
Cameron pump has been placed in the
mine by the superintendent, Mr. Luxon,
who is preparing to sink an additional
100 feet. The Boulder County is prov
ing ono of the largest producing proper
ties. It has a bright future before it.
K3IKLTKIIS TO FOR3I A TRUST.
A New York special under dato of Feb.
16 to the Rocky Mountain News says
an etlort is being made to form a smelt
ers’ trust, which will combine all the
leading smelting companies in tho Unit
ed States. Options have already been
obtained on the stock of ull tho leading
interests concerned, with tho exception
of those held by tho Guggcnheims, lo
cated in Mexico, Pueblo and Perth-Am
boy. It is not known whether these will
enter the combine or not. In tho event
of their not doing 60, no serious difficul
ties are apprehended since there will
A.i ull likelihood be an understanding
whereby the arrangements relative to the
interchange of business will not bo em
barrassed.
The companies directly interested in
the plan of consolidation are tho Consol
idated Kansas City Smelting und Refin
ing company, the National smelting com -
Vany, tho Omaha & Grant smelting
company, the Pueblo smelting company,
and the United smelting company. The
combined capital of tho company aggre
gates 825,(AX),(XX) and their net profits uro
suid to vary from i 2 to 15 per cent. It is
estimated that a material gain will be
derived from the docreaso in tho expenses
tnudo possible by consolidation.
Thoproposed capitalization of tho now
corporation is reported to he at>out 850,-
000,000, but it is believed that the
amount of cnpitul will not bo definitely
determined until tho preliminary details
of organization have been more fully ma
tured. The capital will, however, prob
ably be divided about equally into pre
ferred and common stock. The new
company will be authorized by its char
ter to mine, smelt and refine ore into
gold, silver, copper, lend, and its remain
ing constituent Moments, and will be in
a position to control tho bulk of smelting
[precious metals mined in tho country. It
Is understood in New York that Moore
ft Schley hold the options on the stock
of companies which are preparing to cn
tar the combination.
JrY ridny evening’s Times says that a
Reporter of that journal was seen in re
gard to the profxwed combine, who said:
“I do not believe there is any truth in
tho report. lam sure that no nrrnngo
inent has been made with us in regard
to the consolidating of tho Boston & Col
orado Smelting and Refining company.
It may be, though, that the other smelt
ers are going to consolidate, but the re
port this morning did not mention our
works as joining tho movement.”
Ex-Governor J. B. Grant of the Oma
ha & Grant works was asked regarding
the consolidation, and said: ‘‘l am not
at liberty to say much in regard to the
consolidation, but it is true there have
been some negotiations pending in regard
to consolidating the large smelting inter
ests of the country. As to what tho out
come will be, as yet wo do not know, but
the plan is feasible. Some years ago a
movement was started to consolidate this
industry but it fell through, and the
heads are now endeavoring to revive the
old plans.”
A New York special to tho Denver
News of the 18th says that the firm of
Guggenheim & Sons will not go into the
combine and that it is true that a com
bine of the smelters had been formed.
The financial agents of the combine,
Moore & Schley, will not give any of the
details about the matter for the present.
QUALIISIC ATIONS FOR A MINE MAN
AGER IN SOUTH AFRICA.
A correspondent of Mines and Miner
als, in responding to a Californian seek
ing information as to the requirements
and qualifications of mine managers
under the Transvaal government in
South Africa, gives the following an
swer, which appeared in the London
Mining Journal of recent date:
“A mine manager must hold a certifi
cate of competency from the Transvaal
government in order to be allowed to
take charge of a mine in the South Af
rican Republic. This certificate is to bo
obtained if the applicant succeeds in
passing an examination in the following
subjects: General knowledge of mining,
mining laws, geology, mechanics, engines
and boilers, surveying and assaying. Tho
examination is held before a board of ex
aminers composed of threo government
officials and two mine managers. The
examination in law includes the mining
regulations, the gold law, pass law and
liquor law. A candidate for examination
must have had practical experience in
mines for five years, and have passed
through the curriculum of a recognized
mining school. Iu some cases a manager
may lie permitted to take charge of a
mine for three months, provided he ap
plies for examination within that time.
Another thing is often overlooked by
foreign mining boards of directors,which
is very important to the welfare of a
mining venture, and that is that thege
ology, mineral formations and general
mining conditions prevaiing in the Trans
vaal are vastly different from those of
any other country in the world, so that
it by no means follows that a man, how
ever well he may be up in mining in oth
er countries, can successfully tackle mino
management in South Africa. The Rand
gold formations, for instance, are unique
in the world’s history: they stand alone
in their geologicnland mineralogical feat
urcs, and hence can only be understood
by practical experience, and it is owing
to this fact that Transvaal lias been the
grave of many hitherto splendid renuta
tions. Men who liavo been shining
lights in the mining world have come
here and made dismal failures simply be
cause they had insufficient local experi
ence upon which to baso their judgment
and simply judged from analogy and
comparison with tho experience gained
in other countries where geological and
mineralogical conditions were very die
similar.”
If the same care wes exercised in Col
orady in the selection of mine managers
as in South Africa, thero would bo fewer
failures in mining than has been in many
cases even hero in Gilpin county.
RECORD BREAKER,
i At Galena, Kansas, February 15, all
formor records were broken when zinc
ore sold at 817 to 850 per ton in that
place, Joplin and Webb City. The Scot't
Mining and Smelting company on that
date were offered 850 per ton for its on
tire output for tho next ninety days.
The offer was not accepted. Six months
ago pricos ruled from 820 to 821 per ton.
VAI.UK OF A TON OF GOLD.
The mathematicians who figure a ton
of 2,(XX) troy pounds forgot that there
are only two kinds of tons, tho avoirdu
pois ton of 2,210 pounds in England, and
2,(XX) pounds in the United States, and
the metric ton of 2,204.6 pounds; there
fore there can be no such thing as a ton
of 21,(XX) troy ounces, the United States
ton being 32,000 avoirdupois ounces of
437 1 * grains each. Two thousand pounds
troy contain 29,166 2-3 troy ounces.
With the mint valuation of 820.671834 for
an ounco of gold tho value of a ton,
United States measure, usually culled a
short ton, is 8602,928.49.
GOOD FLACKS FOR INVESTMENT.
Under this caption, Monday evening’s
Donvor Times, in speaking of mining,
snys:
“Plants for tli9 treatment of low grade
ores are also in great demand. Since
mining in the Htuto lias settled down
upon a firm, solid and substantial busi
ness basis, the man with a mine produc
ing theso ores finds Hint business princi
-I>les dictate that he should work thorn,
‘’abulous fortunes occasionally como to
tho mino ownor of today in Colorado, but
the majority of properties uro worked on
tho business principle that ( so many
tons of ore are worth so much and pro
duce just so many dollars profit.’ There
is an excellent opportunity in nearly
every ono of tho cumps of tho stute for
plants of this kind.”
CENTRAL CITY, COLO., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1899.
AT WORK AGAIN.
Henry P. Lowe this week resumed
work on tho Topeka mine in Russell dis
trict, which he was compelled to close
down owing to tho inability of tho Gil
pin Tramway company to transport coal
from Black Hawk to the mine. He pur
chased a car that was sidetracked at the
railroad yard in this city, and had it
hauled to the mine by wagons. The
mine has been closed down for three
weeks without shipping a pound of ore
for this reason. He hopes to bo able to
keep up tho production of the mine, as
well as development work from now on
without further hindrance.
SITUATION AT SILVER PLUME.
Silver Plume Standard, Feb. 18: Mr.
Poirson’s teams have been busy this
week getting dewn the ore which had ac
cumulated at the Seven-Thirty during
tho time tho road was blockaded, and
about 15 wagon loads have been moved.
As the big snowslide came down across
the road to the mino it is impossible to
get wagons across it so that most of tho
ore had to be packed on jacks to the
Pelican. Some was hauled on sleighs
which went through to the mine Thurs
day.
KANSAS SMELTERS CHANGE HANDS.
At lola, Kansas, tho center of the
natural gas belt of Kansas, a deal has
been closed by which tho big zinc smelt
ers of W. & J. Lanyon and of Robert
Lanyon’s Sons, will bo sold to the Pal
myra oil company, which is the Kansas
branch of the Standard oil company.
The consolidation will not be less than
82,000,000. These are tho largest natural
gas smelters in the world.
NEWS AND NOTES.
Washington Johnson, of South Moon
gulch, was in Saturday attending to
business matters.
The richest gold mine in tiio world is in
Victoria, Australia, under the thriving
town of Ballarat, and in 30 years has
yielded 8150,000,000.
James McGrow has taken a leaso on
the Glasgow and McFarlane lode mining
claims, Pleasant Valley district,'property
of W. O. McFarlane, et al.
Knowles & Co. have taken a working
lease of 400 feet of tho westerly portion
of the Robert Emmett mine, on Mary
land mountain. They have commenced
work.
W. 11. Nichols of the Robert Emmett
mine on Maryland mountain, has miners
engnged in driving a level east from the
cage shaft on that vein at a depth of
425 feet.
Shipments of concentrating ore to the
Rocky Mountain concentrator from the
Minnesota mine, Russell district, is now
going on, the blockaded road having
been opened up.
Deeds have been placed on record with
tho county clerk and recorder of Clear
Creek county, transferring the Argo
group of mines near the Lamartino mine
near Freeland, front Max Baer to C. B.
Kountze of Denver.
Tho Ward Pyritic smelter company,
operating at Ward, Boulder county, has
increased its cnpitnl stock from 85(X),(XX)
to 8750,(XX). Notice of the clmngo was
made la,t Thursday at Boulder by the
company’s representative.
Mr. A. L. Collins has started up the
Rocky Mountain concentrator in Black
Hawk, after being closed down for a
week, owing to lack of oro. Ho is run
ning the works on oro from tho Minno
sota, Carr, Central City, Dolawaro und
other mines.
A gentleman in Golden lolls the Trans
cript oditor that ho has a prospect within
a mile of that town from which he hus
taken ore that runs 890.10 to tho ton in
gold und 812 in silver. As soon as the
weather will permit he will connnonce
work on the claim.
J. 11. Lo Moyne brought over from the
Hot Pot mino, at the head of Virginia
canon, a few da>s ago, specimens of
bright yollow copper and galena oro that
he is taking out in tho east and west
500-foot levels. The vein is looking
better as the levels aro extondod.
lowa State Register: Nelson U. Will
iams, the president of tho famous new
gold mine now attracting so much atten
tion at Cripple (.’reek, Colorado, is a
formor lowan. Ho was born in Dubuque.
It is ulwuys pleasant to see lowa men at
the top of tho heap, und especially when
it is a heap of gold.
Kldora Miner: W. C. Thompson came
over frjni Jenny Croek for supplies Mon
day and was snowed in at the Gold Miner
for a couple of days. Ho says tho Peter
son property has tho appearance of be
ing a big thing. Mr. Thompson has a
contract for 500 feet of tunnel for tho
gunlletuon operating there.
A minor's pnek has been patented by
Edmund Daley, of Monterny, California.
It consists of a pickhead with a slot in
the end, a detachable point having u
tongue to fit tho slot, an overhanging
flaDge and excess of metal on the lower
edge of the tongue for swaying tho
tongue over the edges of the slot.
The State Ore and Chamberlain Sam
pling works in Black Hawk last week
put through a lot of smelting ore from
the Lillian mino in Russoll district,
which is worked by Craig, Hughes &
Chance. Mr. Chance informs Thk Oa
srrveii that tho company will ship to
the smelters twenty-five tons during
February. Tho ore is of good grade, the
principal value being gold.
An assay made a few days ago for Mr.
Kuhns of the Hidee Gold Mining com
pany, of ore from the Hidee vein in Lake
district, gave values of 1.66 ounces gold
and 5 ounces silver per ton. This class
of crevice matter was being thrown over
tho dump as worthless. To more fully
satisfy himself of the values it contained
Mr. Kuhns had an assay made with the
above result, It will be saved hereafter.
Dumont’s Electric Light Plant.
An “Empire, Clear Creek county, cor
respondent of tho Denver Post says that
the closing of the option for the pur
chase of about eighty acres of ground
to be occupied as a reservoir for the
storage of water for the new electric
plant at Dumont, is conclusive of the
establishment of works that will supply
power to the mines within a radius of
fifteen miles, and include tho camps of
Georgetown, Empire, Idaho Springs, etc.,
in Clear Creek county, and Central,
Black Hawk and Nevadaville in Gilpin.
The company which will control the en
terprise has been organized at Cleve
land, Ohio, with the support of large
capital for tho erection and maintenance
of a s,(XXMhorse power plant. The rapid
disappearance of wood for fuel and the
difficulty and cost of procuring coal in
many mining sections will insure the
new power a profitable reception.

Montana's New Senator.
The New York Mining Engineer and
Mining Journal gives the following bio
graphical sketch of the life of Montana’s
new United States Senator:
“Mr. W. A. Clark, tho newly elected
Senator from Montana, was born in Con
nellsvillc, Pa., in 1839. Ho went to Cen
tral City, Colo., in 1862, and the follow
ing yeur to Bunnack gold placers in
Montana, where ho cleaned up a fair
stake from his claim. He then became a
trader, bringing in supplies and opening
stores at several camps. In 1868 he
formed a partnership with W. H. Mc-
Donnell of New York city, ns a wholesale
trader and banker, and later acquired the
Butte bank. In 1872 ho bought tho
Original, Colusa, Mountain Chief, Gam
betta and other cluima at Butte, and
spent tho following winter at tho Col
umbiu School of Mines, in New York.
Ho returned to Butte, built the first
stnmp mill in that camp, and organized
the first smelling company of importance,
tho Colorado A Montana mining compa
ny. In 1880 ho organized tho Moulton
compunv, which erected tho Moulton
mill and developed tho Moulton mine, a
silver producer, still in operation. With
his brother, he now owns tho Butte Re
duction Works, the Colusa, Parrott and
other Butte copper mines. In 1883 ho
secured an option on a small property in
Arizona and developed there the United
Verde mine and smelter, one of t he largest
copper properties in the world. He also
owns copper wire works at Elizabothport,
N. J., coal mints at Gallup, N. M., and
Bridger, Mont, and is interested in the
Sunset Peak silver-lead property in
tho Cuour d'Alene district, in Idaho.
