THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1918.
. I- .up j- MINING NEWS Here and Elsewhere aitea, sys ANSON H. SMITH PAGE FOUR TOM REED DIVIDENDS RESUMED AFTER MANV YEARS The first dividend in several years was paid on the 20th of this month by the Tom Reed company, being two per cent on its capitalization. Were it not for the epidemic of influenza in the Oatman Camp it is more than pro bable that the company would main tain its payment of dividends at the rate of two per cent or better for years to come, and it may do so, but the lack of miners is quite an impediment to overcome. The Tom Reed has the ore and every requisite to the payment of dividends but the labor to produce. This will be forthcoming in a .short time. HAULING ORE The big trucks of Granger and Chappell are engaged in hauling ore from the Carter mines to the United Eastern mill, where it will be treated. The Carter could be made a good pay ing proposition by extracting the ore now opened and milling it. The ore body to the 150 level runs about $27 pe ton anu can be saved to a high per centage by the pocess used in the Easten mill. E. Elmo Bollinger ATTORNEY-AT-LAW Citizens Bank Bldg. KINGMAN.

Putman will give a big Turkey Shoot at his ranch on the Big Sandy, November 24, 1918. 100 Birds to shoot for Rare Sport for Sportsmen, COPPER-GOLD PROPERTIES ARE TOJE OEVELOPED Newton Evans and Carl F. Schader passed through Kingman yesterday returning from the Mineral Hill min es, in northern Yuma county, upon which property . they have taken an option. The gentlemen, who are larg ely interested in mining, purpose start ing an important development cam paign on the properties as soon as camp can be established and the work put under way. The Mineral Hill properties were discovered about the same time as the old oCpper Prince, but have never been developed to a great extent. Mr. Evans is responsible for the devel opment of the Prince to the point where it was taken over by the Mit chel crowd, who had not reached the big ore body when the company went into the hands of a receiver. Judge Thomas, who held a lease on the prop erty, found the big ore body and was fast accumulating a fortune when he died. Since that time the Clark peo ple have been operating the mines and are taking big money from it. It is possible that the Mineral Hill properties wjll prove equally im portant. GOV. TO FIX PRICE OF WOOL SENSATIONAL MINE STRIKE One of the most important discover ies of ore in many months was made in the Magnate mine, in Pima county, a few days ago. The ore was cut in to in drifting on a superficial level of the mine where a crosscut has dis- I closed 60 feet of copper ore, carrying (better than nine per cent of the red metal ana over a dollar in silver. The ore body is one of the largest er opened in Pima county and the values makes the mine one of the big propo sitions of the state. The government will fix the price on wool, although.it probable that the price will be somewhat higher than the present market quotation. It is held that the termination of every war the past 100 years has seen wool prices go skyward and the government desires to stabilize the price so that manufacturers may ,not be discom moded by it, nor the people have to pay exhorbitant prices for woolen goods. CASUALTY LISTS STILL COME Many people are wondering why casualty lists still come from the bat tlefront of France, although there is ho fighting. The lists take a long time to prepare after each day's fight, and as a consequence these lists are about four weeks behind. As the daily lists are received at the war de partment they are vised and sent to the postoffices in, ,the large cities, where the lists are printed and sent out to the newspapers. The Miner is in receipt of all the lists and any one who wishes can see them. Metropoli tan newspapers have been printing only the lists of deaths and severely wounded, although there are a few more in the lists of slightly wounded. o , a Mrs. Chas. Wilkins -:- Prop.

RED CROSS CHRISTMAS ROLL CAUJEC.16 TO 23 About one-third of the people in 'California, Arizona and Nevada are members of the Red Cross. This pro portion is not enough to satisfy the western spirit. The Pacific Division wants to do things in the biceest. fin- 'est way possible. Because it has more members enrolled to the thousand pop ulation than ay other Division in the country does not .satisfy it either. Only the best is good enough out here in the West, and nothing short of 100 membership in the Red Cross should satisfy any state, city or com munity in our territory. The Christmas Roll Call for Univer gal Red Cross membership, is schedul ed for the week before Christmas Pecember 16 to 23. To be an Ameri can these days is to account ourselves blest and honored. The only way to be 100 American is to belong to the organized SOUL of our nation and be listed on the Honor Roll of tfyose who serve Humanity. The thing that put the entire population of the country solidly behind the war was the feeling that we were not in it for any selfish end. Through the Red Cross we have served our way into the confidence and into the hearts of every Allied Nation. The opportunity for unselfish service is now greater than ever. Even the enemy will re alize that the1 American heart is the National Heart, and that in both war and peace we are in fact as well as in name "All for Humanity." The Red Cross must mean ALL America. .There must be no weak link in the chain. Universal membership That's All. LIGHT AND POWER , COMPANY SUFFERS Desert Power and Water Company has felt the effects of the present ep idemic with especial severity. With forces already depleted by war's de mands, recent illnesses have caused the management and Chief Engineer Steed grave concern. For weeks ef forts have been made to secure re serve engineers, firemen and linemen from both Eastern and Western sour ces, but without success. As we go to press the following employees of the Company are reported sick and off duty: J. R. Hawkins, Thomas Brobant, C. Alkinson, A. A. Parke, O. Skaggs, Porter Williams, C. A. Rofinot and W. Walton. Several of the plant force while on duty have had the influenza and are only partially recovered. Engineer Walters is held at home by1 his wife's illness, so all in all, these are trying days at the power plant. DEATH COMES TO STATE POLITICIAN Leroy A. Ladd, chairman of the committee of state institutions', died at his home in Phoenix last Saturday morning of pneumonia. He had been ill but a few days. Mr- Ladd was a native of New York and came west ten years ago. Since the entry of Arizona into statehood he had been active in its political-history. He was private secretary to Gov. Hunt, after ward being appointed to the newly created office, which he held at the time of his death. His funeral took place last Monday. ON SAD MISSION Maurice Lauzon and wife have re turned from Salt Lake City, Utah, where they attended the funeral of Mr. Lauzon's father, who died at San Bernardino last week. The elder Lau zon was well known in Kingman, where he had resided during the past two or three years. He had been tak en ill with asthma and was serit to San Bernardino, where it was hoped the lower altitude would relieve his distress. Death was due in a measure to heart failure- NOTHING TO BRAG OF ' Los Angeles is bragging of the size of one sweet spud which was raised on a ranch near that place. The spud weighed six pounds, and there was 24 pounds of spuds in the hill. A few years ago Charles E. Price brought to the Miner office a sweet spud that was iraised on the Keohan ranch, near Planet, this county, that weighed 14 pounds and was about two feet in length. Another in the same hill weighed eight pounds and there were a number weighing from two to four pounds, the product of the hill being better than 40 pounds. GEOLOGICAL MAP OF THIS STATE The Arizona Buieau of Mines is en gaged in the construction of a geologi cal map of the state, which is de signed to show the geological struc tures of all the districts The state has no base map and the bureau will take the matter up and compile it from all the available data. It will be made on a scale of eight miles to the inch and will show clearly the ge ology of every section through which surveys have been run. Of course, there are many square miles of the state that have not been surveyed, but the object of the present work ife to build as far as possible and when new surveys are made they will be added to the balse work. Arizona is badly in need of a geolo gical survey covering its entire area and it is to be hoped that the forth coming session of the legislature will provide for it. MAKE BIG ORE SHIPMENTS There was shipped through the port of entry at Douglas from Mexico, dur ing the month of October, copper and leaH ores carying gold and silver, to the value of $2,875,500. This is the best month's shipment from Sonora during the year and would indicate that mining conditions in that state were becoming normal. SENDS COPY OF NEWSY CAMP PAPER The Miner office is in receipt of a bright and ijwsy little sheet called the OTiiKN". which haa been sent to us by Wagoner Roma N. Jones, who is now stationed at the U. S. General Hospital, Carolina. The paper is the official organ of the hospital and is full of bright and trite little sayings and doings to aid in the brightening of the world for the convalescent soldiers with which this hospital is filled and who have been returned wounded from France to this section. Roma is a Mohave county boy who has recently been transferred to the Medical department and is stationed at this place- but he writes, "is not a patient" as we might be led to infer from his connection with this institu tion. Instead he reports as well and dong fine. MXMKlMaKMiMaMaMaXKIMaKIHIHW Kingman Water Co. JOE CHAMBERS TROUBLEMAN Telephone Black 101 REMEMBER your water comes to you through a METER.

GOLD AND SILVER The war industries board has lifted the ban on the use of gold and silver in the manufactures, but the ban on export still exists. Should gold be sub ject to export it would be but a short time until all the new gold would be in Europe. At the present time the German government would give better than $30 per ounce for the gold and a high price for the silver. The fact that gold is the basic money metal of the greater part of the world and that some of the European countries are almost depleted of the, metal makes it imperative that some of them stock up on this money metal with all pos sible speed. STRIKE MADE UPON LOS CONQUISTADORES MINE NEAR BENSON Some very interesting developments have lately arisen on Los Conquista dores mines property, situated about 12 miles north of Benson. It had been regarded as a gold prop osition solely, (but recently a large body of gold-silver-lead ore has been uncovered on the Carolina No. 1 and No. 2 claims, which from the values it contains bids fair to be the means of financing all of the development work through out the property and leaving considerable in the dividend fund for its shareholders. Preparations are under way to ship a large tonnage of this ore to the El Paso smelter and it is intimated by some of the officials of the company that Ihis step presages the withdraw al of the treasury stock from the market. Tombstone Epitaph. FOUNTAIN HEAD TUNNEL DRIVEN TOWARD ORE BODY A. G. Goodwill, who has an option on the Fbuntajn Head tnine, at Stock ton Hill, was in Kingnjan several days this week." He reports that he has the tunnel in 200 feet, which is being run to tap 'the big vein at a depth of about 100 feet. This tunnel will reach the vein shortly and the ore above that level will be made accessable. As soon as the ore body is developed along the level a Holster will be put in and the mine opened to'greater depth. The Fountain 'Head is one of the best looking properties in the Wall apai district and we feel sure that it will soon be producing largely.
