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
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
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
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
