Enough to Start A Stampede. Over $750,000,000 worth of silver in the country in 1914. Only $300,000,000 worth here now. Demand growing greater all the time and supply dwind ling. No wonder keen students of the international silver situation are ac quiring sound silver securities. There’s nothing but continued advances in priee of silver, which has jumped from 50c an ounce in 1914 to $1.29 an ounce in 1919. It’s enough to start a stampede into every silver producing region of the west and south. Wickenburg is in the centre of a silver-copper-gold zone that ought to be working 5,000 silver miners day and night. Richest Gold Mine in Arizona A despatch from Oatman this week says: “People are greatly interested in development now carried on along the 1334-foot level of United Eastern. The story on the streets is that a won derful body of ore on the new level, ore that is greater in width and value than any found above, will average S3O a ton has been opened. This is in excess of anything milled the past year ” According to the Mojave Miner, the United Eastern is one of the world’s great gold mines which will continue to lead the state in production of yellow metal for years to come. Oil Land Leasing Bill Soon On the Statute Books. The Smoot Oil Land Leasing Bill, re ported to the house favorably by the committee on public lands is now well started on the last journey to the stat ute books. The report signed by the chairman and agreed to by the com mittee represents a month of hard, painstaking consideration of the meas ure. The few slight amendments which it commends, in no wise alters the pur poses of the bill, which are to open the oil resources of the public domain to development and to accord to claimants a just and equitable settlement of long standing and vexatious disputes. Nine Miilion In Sight. As development proceeds it becomes more apparent thatTonopah Divide has opened up one of the greatest silver gold ore bodies in America. Already there has been disclosed a tonnage of high grade ore valued at more than $9,000,000, while indications are that only the surface riches have been en countered. Hampton, New Silver Camp Near Randsburg Booming By John C. Wray. Randsburg Oct. 28 — I am just recovering from three weeks sojourn in the Metropolis of the South, new Los Angeles and find this old town of Rands burg full to overflowing with mining men, and apologies for the same. No matter why, or w T hat they are, they manage to devour all the grub, and fill every bed in town, and the bonifaces are making hay while the rush is on. The “House to rent” signs are a thing of the past, and old land marks are being wrecked, or moved bodily to the new town of Hampton on the new townsite east of the Kelly mine. Nosser Ave. the main st. of Hampton now boasts the old Sharar hotel, which in boom days was the pride of Atolia. This is now used for the Kelly camp boarding house. The Jeal gar age has been moved from Atolia, and is now the Company ware house. In all there are twenty houses (not tents) in Hampton including the old Van Dyke store, which was moved from Atolia, and is being made over into a modern commercial store' Billy Griggs has opened a general and grocery store but Billy still keeps his Atolia store open, hoping for a resumption of the tungsten mines. The Kelly mine has shipped above sixty cars of high grade ore, with no waste dump in evi dence to date. The Tonopah Mining Co., has leased abeve 100 acres west of the Kelly holdings, and a Bakersfield syndicate is working 10 or more leases, close in to the Kelly mine. Sixteen leasers are developing as many pieces of leased ground, and while no big strikes have been made on leased ground to date everybody is eptimistic, and the work is proceeding at rapid fire rate. A private note from John C. Wray, at the new silver camp in Rand district says the new town of Hampton now has more residents than are ieft in the once booming tungsten camp of Atolia, The site is an admirable one completly sheltered from the summer dust gales of Mojave. It has a water pipe line, paved roadway and railroad running thru it. If its inhabitants so will it, they can build a home in San Bernar dino, or Kern counties, as the boundary line of the two counties practically cuts thru the new|t.ownsite. Pete Osdick a popular and well known pioneer tung sten and gold miner, lives close to the line where he has had his home and a stamp mill for many years. There is great activity among the miners and leasers in the new bonanza silver camp which is destined to become a second Butte, or Cripple Creek. —Ed. Want a home cheaper than lumber?
