With a majority of over a million
Florence Harris was declared the win
ner of the first prize in the Miners
of the contestants was fervent test
mony of their gratification for their
individual winnings and
tions were heartily exchanged among
The Miner wishes to thank the con
testants through its columns for the
splendid work they did during the con
test and the spirit of loyalty they
showed the paper in their efforts to
build up its subscription list We feel
that no other group of contestants
could have done the work half so
thorouehly nor obtained
fying results It is doubtful if there
is a home that was not visited by one
or more of the workers and so strong
an appeal did they make to the people
that the percentage of refusals was
practically nil
To the judges also we wish to ex
tend our thanks for the manner in
4 wljich the final count of the votes was
made and for their kindness in acting
in the capacity of final arbiters oitne
cohtest Their naming of winners
was accepted as unbiased rulings of
disinterested outsiders as was a fore
gone conclusion from the caliber and
standing of the men performing this
duty and all felt satisfied that the
money was distributed proportionately
to the business secured by the contes
Nor would we be unmindful of the
splendid support accorded the contes
tants and this newspaper by a gen
erous and loyal public without which
the whole carapaignmust have been a
failure To show you our apprecia
tion of this support it will ever be our
aim to give you a bigger and better
Mohave County Miner
The Miner can point with a just de
gree of pride to a subscription list
increased by more than 600 new pat
rons through the enterprise of Us con
testants Few if any papers cover
ing a field of this size can boast of
over oo per cent ot me cu ciunuuu
possessed by the Miner This not
only reflects credit to the paper but
to the community as well for to a
great extent the progressiveness of a
community is largely estimated by the
suonort riven the home paper
The Miner circulation means that
this paper goes into 95 per cent of the
homes of this county The wide
awake merchant will quickly grasp the
opportunity so offered to get before
the householders by the greater use
of its advertising columns to sing the
merj Jf his goods It is seldom that
coTJHmmty is covered so completely
by an QTi publication
Trusting that the winners will de
rive a full measure pf satisfaction
from the prUaa which through tfjeir
enegy and efforts they have so de
servedly won and thanking one and
all for the interest they have taken
and the efforts they have put forth
during the six weeks campaign the
curtain falls on the Miners 1921

F W Mcintosh campaign manager
who handled the Miners subscription
contest comes in for a just amount
of commendation for the clean manner
In which he handled the contest Mr
Mcintosh who is a newspaperman of
manv vears experience had the inter
ests of both the newspaper and the
contestants at heart and handled the
campaign accordingly Mr and Mrs
Mcintosh left for the coast Wednes

ed that it may prove as large and
more potential than at any other place
on the property On the 100 level
drifts had been carried into the coun
try west of the shaft but it was
thought best not to do extensive ex
ploration at that depth owing to its
proximity to the surface beneath the
big mass of debris wherefore another

The campaign was declared closed
promptly at 9 oclock when the ballot
box was given into the possession of
the judges Treasurer Wayne Hubbs
A L Horner and Jack Hemphill and
the counting of votes proceeded almost
5 The Miner office where the count
ing of votes was conducted was com
fortably filled with contestants and
their friends and good humor and
amiability were marked characteris
tics of -the event
They were not left long in doubt of
the outcome of their six weeks of
strenuous work thanks to the quick
decisive manner in which the judges
dlsnosed of the matter in hand
The contest was oneof friendly
rivalry throughout in which no fee-
ing of bitterness had a place the best
of relations existing among the con
testants at all times When the re
sults were announced the satisfaction
drift it was not until the crosscut was
driven into the vein that the extent
and richness of that end of the prop
erty became certain It is now prob
able that operations will be carried on
from this point the same as that in
the east end of the property cross
cutting the veinat intervals of 50feet
and exploiting the ore body as far
west as it may extend While this
ore body is richer than that opened
in any other part of the mine it is
pointed out that the ore bodir ft
same level to the east is one of the
mosf remarkable ore masses ever
opened in the state especially in a
gold property Here the body shows
a width of from 33 feet to 68 feet
practically all of it being pay rock On
the 400 the values are wonderful and
the ore continues without a break for
more than 1000 feet in lentrth a
far as opened the ultra conservative
estimate of the ore m sight is above
4000000 while each day adds to this
When the mines of GoidfteM n
being opened and showed ore bodies
far lessen size and no greater in value
me wnoie worm knew of it and the
rush there was unprecedented We
believe that when the country becom
es possessed of the knowledge of the
values in the Katherine and other
mines in that field and their nntenH
uuues mere wm oe a rush to the new
fields that will startle the world No
effort on the part of the management
of the Katherine has been made to ex
ploit their property with the public
everything being done to keep the
matter quiet because there was no
stock to go on the public market and
no reason for exciting the people with
stories of the magnitude richness and
extent of the massive ore bodies The
management has been quietly at work
developing the property the past- four
years and have brought in a mine that
will be heard from for many years
to come as one of the greatest gold
mines the world has ever known It
has all the well established earmarks
of a great mine the development hav
ing been carried to the 400 level with
out losing one particle of the potential
features shown in the 1 2 and 3rd
levels and in fact have reinforced the
showing on the deepest level of the
property both in richness and breadth
of ore
The mine js well situated being but
a little overa mile from the Colorado
river reachable over a good automo
bile road and at a point where the
plain breaks down toward the river
giving a wonderful site for a mill and
great expanse of wide washes for tail
ings pits without extra handling of
the tails from the mill A bill mill
is under consideration and when it is
in commission we expect to see bul
Jionspouring out of it in such quantity
that mining men from all parts of the
world will have to sit up and take
wildcats wallop

in the interest of the Park to Park
highway Mr Woolfolk is chairman
of the board of supervisors of Coco
nino county and a prominent sheep
raiser of that county He is one of
the most enthusiastic road boosters
in the state and has put in a large
part of his time interesting the citi
zens in better roadways throughout
the country The gentlemen stated
their mission to the board and were
well received the members voting
400 to advance the cause of govern
mental roadbuilding between the
playgrounds of the republic
The Park to Park Association is
composed of the best men of the Na
tion The interests of the Interior
Department is concerned in the build
ing of a network of highways that
will eventually tie up every park and
National Monument and give the
pleasure grounds accessibility to the
people of the whole country Stephen
T Mather head of the National Parks
commission is behind the movement
for a highway that covers more than
6000 miles of roads leading from one
park to another the roads to be of
such a character that they may be
negotiated at any time of the year
These roads would let our people visit
the natural scenic places of America
which are grander in every respect
than any of the old world beauty
spots A visit to these places will
give to the people greater respect for
the things that are American than
any other thing because they will be
able to view them at will The tour-
ist will also get some idea of the mag
nitude of the country its possibilities
and its wonderful opportunities for
safe investments as well as getting
these magnificent natural views That
the roads will be built is but a mat
ter of a few years but the people
must not lay down on the proposition
but to keep working at all times until
the desired object is attained Coco
nino county is back of the movement
as is every county in the north and

From Tombstone Epitah
Chas P Blanton a mining man of
Mohave county has taken over the
jrroun of mines known as the Gold
Camp in the Dragoon mountains about
16 miles from Tombstone and ac
cording to his announcement while in
Tombstone yesterday will start work
of developing the claims at once with
a view of producing gold ore
Mr Blanton who has followed gold
mining in Mohave county for years is
confident he states that there is good
gold ore in that district from
tions shown by the small amount of
work which has ben done on the
mines He will put a small force of
men at work at once cleaning out the
old shafts which were worked several
years ago by Joe Stanfield up to the
time of his death Good gold bearing
quartz was mined by Stanfield he
says and if he can locate the vein
there is no doubt but what tho Gold
Camp can be made a producer
Pauly and Smith of Tucson are at
present working some gold claims ad
joining the Gold Camp claims while
Herman Durand pioneer mining man
of Gleeson is also developing his
claims in that section and good show
ines are being made
The old Gold Camp was located a
number of years ago and was for
merly owned by Tombstone men until
the claims were allowed to lapse ac
cording to Mr Blanton who has filed
on them

ues 300 feet from the portal of this
adit drift a shaft was carried to a
depth of 200 feet and drifts carried
off along the vein 30 feet to the north
and 25 feet south This shaft was
sunk between two ore shoots it being
the intention to drift north into the
main ore body that showed up so well
in the level above The shaft is
I equipped with a hoist and is in shape
to begin active development at a
moments notice A compressor and
machine drills are to be put in and
the mine hereafter all work will be
carried on with better equipment
Over the hill to the south there is
another important outcrop of the big
vein where values as high as 60 per
son are to be found This part of the
mine has been ignored but the new
management will carry development
into that quarter and see what can
be done to add to the tonnage of the
roperty before steps are taken to
equip it with milling facilities The
ore in this part of the mine is dissim
ilar to that farther north the vein
passing through some of the impor
tant dikes of that region The vein
is bisected by the Mamouth dike to
the south while the Eclipse dike one
of the most important in that region
crosses the big vein farther north
It is probably these dikes that have
enriched the veins of the Secret Pass
section and further development in
the region of the dikes is sure to dis
close important mineralization of the
big veins In the Nancy Lee tunnel
the ore shows free gold this rock be
ing highly colored with flourine and
being a mixture of calcite and quartz
while to the south tHe ore is practi
cally all quartz The work done on
the property was in the early days of
the war and discontinued because of
wartime conditions Everything was
left in fine shape for resumption of
work with little expense and as soon
as finances are gotten in proper
shaoe the management is to resume
operations where they were left off
several years ago The company has
a splendid directorate men who be
lieve in spending the money in the de
velopment and not in the payment of
salaries to an otnee lorce Jiivery
dollar that is invested in the shares
of the company will be paid out for
Business men of Kingman are be-
coming actively interested in the prop
erty and a large amount of money will
be invested by those who have seen
the mine and known the character of
the management R B Manson who
is secretary and treasurer of the com
pany and who has been sitting tight
since the close down of the property
several years ago is looking after the
financing of the treasury and who
will see that returns are obtained for
U S Mineral Surveyor
every dollar invested and that the in
terests of the old and new sharehold
ers are protected The -mining editor
of this paper knows the mines and
can highly recommend them to an in
vesting public The company has x
permit of the Arizona corporation
commission to sell 100000 shares of
the stock the proceeds to go into the

opment on the property
