THE GILPIN OBSERVER
VOL. XIII.
The Observation Mining Department.
OHIO GROUP OF VEINS.
Joseph Waldhardt, who is interested
with John Kurri in the Ohio group of
veins in Vermillion distriot, west of this
city, inforn s The Observer that the
work of sinking a winze on a good chute
of ore in the adit which has been driven
on that vein has been commenced. To
avoid the seepage water, a line of sluices
has been placed along the adit from its
present heading to a point east of where
the adit will bo sunk. As soon as the
winze is sunk to a sufficient depth, back
/ stoping will be commenced. The ore
carries gold, silver and copper, the for
mer predominating. The stamp mill ore
runs fairly well in gold, besides the val
ues contained in the concentrates from
the stamps.
SMELTER ADOPTS OLD RASIS.
The Philadelphia smelter at Pueblo, of
which Simon Guggenheim is president,
last Sunday, under previous arrange
ment, went back to its old basis—with
one exception—which existed prior to
tho lock out. The scale of wages is as
follows: The blast furnace department
will continue on un eight hour system at
the present scale of wages. The scale is
as follows: Tappers, 81.80; pot pushers,
81.80; furnace men, 82.20. The men in
the feed department will also continue
on eight hour shifts, with tho following
scale of wages: Feeders, 82 20; charge
wheelers, 81.80. The roaster department
and copper plants will return to the old
12 hour system, and the men will be paid
the 1893 wage scale, or an increase of 10
per cent, above the scale paid just prior
to tho smelter controversy. Machinists,
boiler makers, engineers and yardmen
have been on 10 hour shifts siuce the
first of this month at the old scale.
GOLD MINING WITHOUT WATER.
A Santa Fe, Now Mexico, press tele
gram says that S. G. Burn, the English
mine expert, repiesenting Thomas A.
Edison, having formally received posses
sion of the Oritz mine grant, for wh ch
the inventor and his associates paid 83,-
000,000, left South Santa Fo county last
night for New York, carrying with him a
large supply of placer gravel which will
bo used in making an exhibition test of
Edison’s gold saving device. The exhi
bition will be made in the presence of
tho stockholders of tho new corporation
purchasing tho Oritz grant, Styled the
Calcstro company. This is to be the fl
' nal test, others having been highly satis
factory. Mr. Burn says there are 8800,-
000,000 in gold in the gravel beds near
Santa Fe, which tho company now con
trols.
Edison is quoted as saying: “I expect
to go New Mexico with the machinery
and to superintend the construction of
tho plant. Wo shall begin work almost
at once. At tho start we shall produce
810,030 worth of gold every day. There
is 8800,030,030 worth of it there. The
electric machinery will take it directly
from tho sand. There will be no trans
portation of the ore. We shall handle it
all on the spot and merely ship the pure
gold. My process hns solved tho ffrob
lem of gold mining without water. It
has been tested and found to fulfill all
requirements.”
A NEW FEATURE.
The new Cornish pump, cast and fin
ished at tho Black Hawk foundry of Me-
Farlano A Co., has a new feature, not
possessed by any similar pump in Colo
rado, namely: It is equipped with stool
balance bobs. Tho pump rod, Bxß, runs
on steel plates, the use of plates being
necessitated by the pitch of the vein
which is to t l <o south. The pump at its
norinul speed hus a capacity of 300 gal
lons per minute, with a four foot stroke.
It can be speeded up to 503 gallons per
minute. Tho fact is becoming more ap
parent every year that there is no neces
sity of sending out of tho county or state
for mining machinery, as with the facili
ties now at hand, boilers, engines and
hoisters can be manufactured here equal
in cupacity and finish to nay that are
shipped here from the east. The finest
and smoothest running engine in Gilpin
county, is the Corliss engine in use at
the Chnmberlain Sampling works in
Black Hawk, which was manufactured
by McFarlano A Co., at their foundry in
Denvor. A similar engine was built by
thorn in Denver in 1390 for the Coors
Brewing company of Golden. The beat
boilers in use here are those manufact
ured at the boiler works of Stroeide »fc
Sor, in Black Hawk.
STEEL SHAFT HOUSE.
The Loadville Miner says that city is
about to witness the inauguration of an
era of tho most modern machinery, and
it intends to take a leap beyond nil other
camps in this respect. It will take the
lead of the world in this respect. At an
early date the construction will bo begun
on a prominent property In the gold
bolt of a steel shaft house, one of those
durable, graceful, incombustible struc
tures that will be a thing of beaifty as
well as substantial utility. It will be a
costly affair, but in the end it will bo
the most oconomicnl kind of shnft
houses, as has been proven by those put
up at Cripple Creek and elsewhere. The
gallows frame will be a strong one and
of such size that but one inference is to
be drawn, and that is that the shaft will
bo sunk to a greater depth, perhaps
2,000 feet, or even more than that if
necessary or mineral warrants it.
The millions extracted from Fryer,
Carbonate and Yankee hills were hoisted
from the bowels of mother earth with
machinery that is now looked upon as
crude, primitive and almost obsolete.
The shaft houses were shell-liko frames,
and did not or do not bespeak perma
nency. Now a change may be looked
for in all thi9. Tho existence, of great
bodies of sulphides at great depth sug
gests to miners the necessity of perma
nent and substantial 6haft houses.
COPPER PRODUCTION.
In the copper mines of Michigan 5,000
more men are employed than were em
ployed a year ago. There is still a
scarcity of miners it is claimed. It shows
how immense is the present demand for
copper, and it will continue to increase
for a long time to come unless a diver
sion can be made by some other metal
like aluminum. The world’s convertible
force, electricity, 6eems to have adopted
copper as the medium through which to
do its work.
COEIR d'ALENE SOLD.
The Cceur d’Alene mine on Academy
hill has been sold to Pittsburg capitalists
on a basis of 840,000. The bale was
effected through Mr. Krum, of Denver.
The property, which is patented, is
owned by Mr 6. Catherine Cameron, of
this city. Possession was given last
Monday, W. H. Parentau. of this city,
being placed in charge of the same for
the purchaser.
NEWS AND NOTES.
Abe Robbins has sold bis interest in
the After Supper Mining and Leasing
company, operating the After Supper
lode, Black Hawk, to Harry Kimber.
This company has many improvements
in view on the surface, which will greatly
aid in deeper development work of their
property. As far as it has been devel
oped, the vein gives fuily as good a show
ing us the Sleepy Hollow and Fisk, we9t
of'iho former property and on tho same
vein.
A recent issue of the New York Times
in commenting on tho sale of the Inde
pendence mine at Cripple Creek and the
organization of tho Independence Min
ing company, editorially says: “This,
possibly, marks a new era in tho interest
which will be taken by New York people
in reputable gold mining companies. It
is a general opinion among mining men
that the Independence is the largest gold
mine ever opened in America.”

the Jefferson mine pool.

the Pine Creek Consolidated Mining
company, this week filed for record with
County Clerk and Recorder Updegraff,

Boston and Colorado Mining company
will erect one and tho United States

reads as follows:
“We, tho women of Denver, Colorado,
a free city in a free state, appeal to all
women in behalf of our brother, the Jew,
Alfred Dreyfus, unjustly condemned and
torturod because he is a Jew. American
women should avoid French goods and
French soil, and should refuse to visit
the exposition of 1903 unless tho true
France wipes out this shameful record of
a shameless trial.”
