“One duty of loyal
citizens is to see that right minded men are elected to office, and that no improper use is made of our election machinery”. Friday, Aug. 1, 1919 I MINING NEWS i Thos. C. Wright, shift boss for the Calumet & Arizona Mining company, was instantly killed and Bill Whitehead and Tony Bolen were injured by a cave-in at the Junction mine at Bisbee July 27. Advices from Globe say the Richmond Basin again is active, with the rise in silver value. Nearly 40 years ago the basin was even more noted for silver production than was the Silver King. Several hundred thou sands of dollars’ worth of native silver was taken from the sur face of the Silver Nugget claims —simply loaded into wagons and hauled away. The Mack Morris was a large producer and rich leads were worked on a number of other mines. Two of the old mines, (the Emmaline and Blue sird,) lately have been taken under lease by a Colorado company, rep resented by George Dunlap, of Denver, who is bringing in new machinery, necessary for devel opment of the long abandoned properties. In the same locality a2O ton cyanide mill has been started on the Jumbo property by Charles Bessonette for the handling of a large dump of low grade ore. The Miami Mining and Milling company has bought the 250 ton mill of the Arizona Butte comp any and is having it hauled to its property near Doak. The first unit, or 50 tons capacity, is to be started soon on Miami ore. Bornite has been cut at 300 feet in a drill hole on the Louis D’Or claim of the Inspiration Miami company at Miami. The Superior and Boston fire has proven less damaging than at first feared, having been bulk headed off on levels below the 600 by a crew of helmet men from the Old Dominion mine. The cause is assumed to have been lighted candles left by a leasing gang. Rubber That Resists Heat. Gilsonite, the purest known hydro-carbon, has found great favor in the rubber industry. As pure rubber is sensitive to heat and cold it can not be used ad vantageously for making prod ucts that are exposed to extreme temperatures, but when it is mixed with gilsonite and the mix ture is vulcanized the rubber un dergoes changes in composition that enable it to resist variations in temperature as well as oxida tion. The product of this mix ture, which is called mineral rub ber, is well adapted to outdoor use, and the demand for it is in creasing. Prospectors In Too Much Os A Hurry. Persons entering Indian reserv ations for purpose of in any way prospecting prior to the adoption of rules and regulations by the sec retary of the interior necessary for the the proper protection of the innerests of the Indians and for the purpose of carrying the provis ions of the mineral act into full force and effect, are trespassers, and will have to be accordingly dealt with. LEAGUE OR WAR DECLARES FORD MANUFACTURER MAKES IT CLEAR HE BELIEVES COVEN ANT IS A GREAT STEP. DECLARES “WAR IS MURDER” Whirlwind of Questions Fail to Shake Composure of Man Who Sues for Million Because He Was Called “Anarchist." Mt. Clemens, Mich.—The high idealism of Henry Ford has freshened the proceedings of the Ford-Tribune libel case and has brought into the wearisome arguments of counsel and the dull repetition of cross-examina tions, a new quality. For a week the man who has been described as everything from an “an archist" to the greatest patriot of his day, has been on the stand facing a merciless fire of questions. During the reading of an article Written by John Reed on Henry Ford, and published in the Metropolitan Mag azine, the audience in the court cham ber violated all precedent by breaking into applause and Mr. Ford, visibly em barrassed, raised his hand in protest. Tribune counsel had endeavored to quote paragraphs from the Reed arti cle but had been compelled, by objec tion of Ford attorneys, to introduce the interview in its entirety.. In the main it was highly complimentary to Mr. Ford. “Make Farmer Independent." “What I want to do," Mr. Ford was quoted as saying, “is to make the farm er as independent as I am; independ ent of the banks, independent of the trusts, independent of the railroads.” The audience, many of them from the surrounding farms of this commu nity* showed visible evidence of its ap preciation of that ideal. Twice Mr. Ford, wearying of the questions having to do with his knowl edge of history, said “Oh, I’ll admit that I’m an ignorant idealist if you wish." “What is an idealist?" queried Tri bune counseL The innate goodness of the man lighted up his kindly eyes with a new light, as he leaned forward and an swered slowly, “I think an idealist is one who tries to make people happy and prosperous. I think I do that a little.” Quiet, unassuming, courteous and patient, Henry Ford made a deep im pression on the audience. Not once did he lose his temper under the heck ling of opposing attorneys, even whan their questions verged on the edge of insult. But ‘ when the examination touched on subjects w-hich are close to his heart, the League of Nations, war and the happiness and prosperity of Humanity, counsel found him eagerly alert A League of Nations, or prepared cess up to the hilt That is the way he sees the situa tion today. “We must either,” he said, “accept the covenant of peace or dem ocracy must arm and stand guard for ever at the threshold of liberty." “War Is Murder." He hammered that fact home and with it he always added, “War is mur der." “I was a murderer,’’ he said, “I was a helper of murder*. When the crisis came we all took a hand. But it is all the same. War is murder.” “What do you mean by murder.” “I mean killing people.” “Killing people to protect the inter ssts of the people?" “Killing anybody or anything. I don’t know what else w r ar is. War is murder. There is a far better waj r .” “What is the better way?” “Why, to educate people. To teach them to think for themselves." A long examination was conducted which sought to quiz Mr. Ford concern ing his view's on history, based on a remark which he once made that “I wouldn’t give five cents for all the his tory ever w-ritten." “I don’t think much more of it now than I did then," testified Mr. Ford. “The war show r ed us that history didn’t last a w r eek. All the things they told us would happen didn’t happen. They went ahead, knowing what war meant, and made the' same mistakes all over again. The history we write today is the thing that counts. I’m not interested in yesterday." The Flag of Nations, The much discussed flag of a League Df Nations, which it has been stated Mr. Ford was having made in his fac tory before the United States entered the war, was brought into court. The ARIZONA STATE MINER. t We solicit the accounts of Individuals, Business Firms and | Mining Companies— X t We extend to Our Customers every courtesy consistent % t with Safe Banking— t X ,* | I testimony developed the Tact that Mr. Ford did not originate the design of the flag and had never seen the ban ner itself. He saw a small drawing Df it once in St. Paul’s Cathedral, .1 troit, he said, but had never heard of it again and knew nothing about it. He denied emphatically that he ever said he w r ould raise this flag above the Stars and Stripes, and said the statement that he reverenced this ban ner above the flag of his country was “A terrible thing to say about an Am erican.” Rules Governing Oil Locations In response to many inquiries relative to oil locations and the regulations provided for location of government land for oil and gas, the following will be of in terest to all who may contem plate the filing of oil and gas leases and explains the rules and regulations to be followed: All vacant unappropriated and unre served public lands cheifly valuable for their deposits of petroleum or other mineral oils, may be located under the placer mining laws of the United States, but no oil location is perfected until discovery of mineral within the limit of the claim has been made (Bay City Oil Company, et al vs. Alvarado Oil Company, 43 L. D., 397.) In New Mexico, however, the state laws pro vide that when lands have been located for petroleum or natural gas or both, the locator or locators thereof shall have the right to the exclusive posses sion and occupancy of the land embraced in the location for the purpose of pros pecting for petroleum, oil and gas dur ing the period from the date of location of the claims to the end of the calendar year succeeding that in which the loca tion was made (proviso to section 3461, compiled laws of New Mexico, 1915.) So if an oil location was made for un appropriated unreserved lands in New Mexico during May of this year, the locator of locators would have the ex clusive possession thereof until mid night of December 31, 1920, to prose cute their jvork with a veiw of making a discovery of oil within the limits of the claim. One person or individual may locate 20 acres, and a corporation is consid ered an individual in the location of placer claims; two persons 40 acres and for each additional locator, the claim may be larger by 20 acres until 160 acres is reached, which is the maximum claim. But the association claims of 160 acres or less the locators must have an equal bona fide interest in the claim located, for no one can use his name for the use and benefit of somebody else. No limit is placed upon the num ber of oil, claims which individuals or associations may locate, but the fact that oil has been discovered on one claim would not validate the other ad joining locations without an actual dis covery of oil on them (see section 2320 of the revised statutes.) Oil claims in groups of five, if contin uous and owned in common may be developed by a single common improve ment, provided that it tends to the dev elopment of or to determine the oil bearing character of the contiguous claims for which it is sought to be ap plied, and provided further that a dis covery of oil has been made on each of said contiguous claims for which it is sought to be applied, and provided fur ther, that a discovery of oil has been on each of said contiguous claims (see Smith vs. Union Oil company, 135 Pac. Rep. 966, affirmed by the United State Supreme Court Rep’s 308.) An act act passed by the last Arizona legislature which will apply amends the civil code of 1913, section 4032 as follows: “Such surface boundaries shall be marked by six substantial posts projec ting at least 4 feet above the surface of the ground, or by substantial stone i monuments at least 3 feet high, to-wit: j one at each corner of said claim, and ! one at the center of the end line thereof: provided, however, that when the point of a monument of a mining ‘ claim is at the same point and coincides j with a monument of a survey of the j United States, the monument of such government survey shall be and is hereby declared to be a mining claim of claims heretofore or hereafter loca ted.” 1 The above act was approved by the governor March 20, 1919. i Wickenburg Grocery Co.
