New Silver Strike In Rand
District
The big silver strike reported
by personal letter to the editor
of the Miner last week looks
something like the big Tonapah
Divide.
The strike has been the one
topic of comment among mining
journals and in the mining sec
tions of the California daily pa
pers.
An interview of the Los Ange
les Times with John C. Wray
says:—
“Julius Krutchnitt and E.
Thornton, chief engineer and
field deputy, respectively, repre
senting the American Smeltering
and Refining company. W. C.
Humphrey, mining engineer,
representing Boston capitalists;
Field Deputy Tucker, of the State
Mining Bureau; 0. S. Knapp,
representing San Francisco Min
ing men; W. H. McConnell, rep
resenting Ellery Mudd, million
aire mining man, and engineer
of Los Angeles, who during the
past 10 days have made exhaus
tive examination of the mine, as
far as developed, pronounce it
one if not the greatest in extent,
and value of any silver strike,
(not excepting Tonopah) which
has been made in the last 20
years. Offers of $500,000 and
$1,000,000 have been made for
the property by two of the
experts named. Both offers have
been refused. In all, five blocks
of 200 feet and one of 300 feet
have been let, and work on these
fractions of the dyke is now in
progress.
The high grade ore is horn,
ruby, glaze, bromide and sul
phides which average 60 per cent
in value. The general character
of the dyke is altered. Quartz
ite, assaying gold values of from
sl.lO to $96 per ton. The assays
made on eight cars shipped, or
ready for shipment, show silver
and gold values ranging from
$42 to $1,870 per ton.
The company has secured 320
acres on the railroad one-half
mile from the mine, which has
been surveyed and subdivided
for a townsite.
John C. Wray was formerly of
San Pedro and owns one-eighth
interest, and one full claim of 20
acres on the east lode line of the
Juanita claim, from which the
ore is now being mined. This
claim completes the divide group.
The strike was kept a close secret
from March to June.”
Sinks Shaft On Mine Idle For
Years
The Lyman syndicate of Jerome,
Ariz., is sinking a shaft on the
Blue Nose group of silver claims
in Santa Cruz county. This prop
erty, which has been idle for
nearly 28 years, was recently ac
quired from John Hoy, of Har
shaw.
United Verde Extension stock was
quoted at SSO yesterday. More good
news for the Douglasites who were wise
enough to buy it. This property has
been one of the wonders of the south
west. — Douglas International.
A Texas oil company has leased over
15,000 acres ol Arizona oil lands down
near Benson.
PITHY POINTERS
Facts and Comment That Puts
the People “Next.”
Those editors who allow the vicious
pencil pusher of the S. F. Industrial
News to write their leading editorials,
are like a lot of bald-headed poll par
rots—without brains.
Staid old Tucson was all excited last
week over indications of oil on a nearby
ranch. But a news reporter who went
out to see it, went right home and sawed
up a good sized wood-pile for his wife.
Hard-boiled Smith, the one reputek
so mercilessly guilty of maltreating sol
diers under him in France, is said to be
a graduate of the Phoenix Republican
school of journalism. Maybe thats how
he became so crusty.
The corporation commissioner has re
turned from a personal observation vis
it to the oil fields of Holbrook, but the
oil he didn’t see there would fill a lake.
One well is down 2,300 feet in red sand
stone yielding salty swabbings.
Comes now Homer Hamlin, the Los
Angeles end of the reclamation engin
eers, and deals a severe blow to plans
of the Verdi scheme to irrigate Deer
and Paradise valleys—and the cake of
those northern farmers is all dough.
Gov. Campbell has appointed a State
Resources Board, but from a perusal of
its personnel, the miners jvho represent
three fourths of the taxes paid into
the State treasury, are completely o’er
shadowed by litigants, financiers and
irrigationists.
When fully analyzed it will be found
supporters of Mexican intervention are
due to irresponsible and insistent jun
kers, aided by certain newspapers and
publications heavily patronized by an
inner circle of corporate and financial
interests.—Mining Record.
From the way the big newspapers
are handling the deportations cases, it
is evident the copper press has become
anxious of the results. The Prescott
Courier intimates “this black chapter
in the history of Arizona was the re
sult of the then as now crawl undar the
bed governor every time it thunders.’’
Notice has been served on Col. Harris
who still (maintains the office, records,
and regalia of adjutant general in spite
of the appointment ol Capt, Ingals by
Gov. Campbel'. Like the governor, Col.
Harris intends to stick till the courts
put in his successor, same as Campbell
did. “Sauce fer de goose, gen’lmen,
am sauce fer de gander.”
While the government is hustling all
the information on mining the state is
estimating and planning how to collect
and conserve all the water on the state
water sheds; Phoenix has voted a mil
lion and a quarter for a soft water sup
ply, while Mohave county proposes to
aid private enterprise in damming the
Colorado. Funny, isn’t it, how the de
mand for water is increasing?
Prescott Courier scrihes suggest that
since buttermilk haa been found to con
tain alcohol we are cut down to sweet
milk and boiled water, an infallible
cure is to take unboiled water in your
mouth, throw away the stove-lid and
sit on the hole till the water boils, im
agine ex-President Taft, for instance,
sitting on the hole waiting for the boil
to come.
“I am against the proposition to enter
into an alliance with France and Great
Brittain and I shall devote all of my
strength to the end that it shall be de
feated. I am not willing that any other
nation shall say when we shall enter
war and when we shall not I am
for a league of nations, but this is a
league within a league that will tend to
dissolve and destroy the league and
leave the nations of the earth up against
the certainty of future war.”—Wm. J.
Bryan.
A little research as to who oppose
government ownership has adduced the
following facts which are taken from
reports of congressional investigations:
The records show that during the Pier
pont Morgan administration of the New
Haven railroad there was unwarrarted
expenditure of large amounts in educa
ting public opinion—the disposition of
hundreds of thousands of dollars for in
fluencing public sentiment—to control
utterances of the press by subsidizing
reporters. The investment of $400,000
in a New England newspaper. The L.
& N. railroad expended $59,322 for the
creation of public sentiment —in the en
deavor to mould public opinion through
the press. The Rock Island railroad
made payment of $44,066 to the Denver
Post; the voucher attached read for
“advertising in editorial and news col
umns.” Naturally, the press will use
every means possible to p rpetuate the
power of those who are paying extrav

agant prices for editorial and news col
umns. The Inter-State commerce com
mission found that 17,023 stockholders
of the New Haven railroad sued Pier
pont Morgan and W, Rockfeller for
$156,000. Directors and officials who un
load their private worthless stocks on
the railroads or manipulate the railroad
stocks to increase their own fortunes
are those opposeing government owner
ship.—Tucson Post.
Gold Mining At Randsburg,
Calif.
D. A. Blue, owner of the Black
Hawk Gold Company, is in high
grade, and is preparing to mill
above 100 tons prior to July 25.
Gunderson & Howe have above
forty tons of S6O ore on their
dump and are getting ready for
a milling by the Phoenix mill
which is now operating on cus
tom ore.
Dave Greathouse is working on
his gold prospect southwest of
the Yellow Astor, and reports
that he has S3O ore in milling
quanity, and refuses to sell at
any price, as he is satisfied with
what he has in sight, and values
increasing as depth is made.
O'Leary, Haley and Johnson
working two shifts on the Minne
haha group, have about 70 tons
high grade on the dump, wait
ing its turn for milling by the
Phoenix mill, the only mill in the
camp at this writing. The Min
nehaha has, since December,
1918, milled 26 tons of $lO4 ore;
37 tons of $lO9, and 42 tons of
sll9 ore, with ore now on the
dump holding assay values equal
to the best milled to date.
Ranier Company Sinking
1,000-foot Shaft.
W. T. Gnash of the Ranier
Mines Corporation who are oper
ating in Cunningham pass came
down from Wenden on Monday.
His mission being to inspect a
carload of lumber purchased of
Rosenberg & Co. at Congress
Junction.
The Ranier Mines company
have a very promising group of
mines which are being developed
by the sinking of a double-com
partment shaft to a depth of
1,000 feet. With a force of eight
men the shaft has been sunk
about 70 feet and the bottom
shows sulphide ore of good value
clean across the shaft in a forma
tion of schist and shale.
The company has just pur
chased a 60-h. p. commercial
engine, a 12xl2|F.M. compressor,
several jackhammers, pressure
tank, a pump and several 1,000
gallon water tanks, The outfit
is daily expected from Los Ange
les, whence it was ordered of the
well known machinery house of
Butler & McClellan.
Non-Responsibility Notices.
It is customary and a good
legal precaution for lessees to an
nounce the fact thru the pres
that they have leased or let certain
property, mines, hotels, ranches,
or business of any kind. In
order to protect their property
from any complications thru man
agement or failure of leasors, it is
necessary to insert an advertise
ment to this effect:
To wh >m it may concern—This certifies
that I will not be responsible for any
contracts, supplies, material, liens for
labor or insurance in connection with the
work now being done by leasors on the
Hassayampa gold and silver mine situa
ted in district, county of
State of Arizona. Thus if a leaser fails
ih his contract, his obligations will not
become a lien against the property.
Miners Get Increased Wages.
Miners working in the Globe-Miami
district will receive an increase of 75
cents per day, dating from Jnly 16,1919.
The new scale is
copper and means that miners will re
ceive a minimum of $5,65 a day.
The entire issue of Franco-American
stock aggregating shares has
been purchased by Phelps-Dodge and
Copper Queen interests.
