The west drift from the- 500 level
of the Oatman Gold has been carried
out 40 feet and a crosscut disclosed a
vein that carried fairly good values
This vein has been opened 55 feet from
the crosscut showing 18 inches of
commercial ore and good values across
the balance of the vein material The
higher grade ore shows increasing
width the average in the face being
5V4 feet and is well defined between
two andesite walls This vein will be
developed as fast as possible
In the crosscut from the shaft to
the north the heading is now in 100
feet and is going ahead rapidly This
pact of the vein is now in andesite

Edwin 0 Daue general manager of
the Dardanelles mine at Chloride
was a Kingman visitor this week
Some years ago Mr Daue was in Mo
have county representing the Mines
Company of America coming here
from Old Mexico At that time the
company was operating the Arabian
mines over in the Union Pass sec
tion He comes here now to take the
place of E Ford Eaton who has left
here to enter business on his own ac
count in California
For several years he was in South
America for the General Development
company on the Amazon and last year
I he was jr Central America He is a
mineralogist ot note ana tne Darda
nelles is lucky in securing his ser
vices During the Spanish American
war he was one of the boys who took
part in suppressing the Filipino insur
rection and saw much service in the
islands and elsewhere
We understand that the Dardanelles
is contemplating a big campaign of
development of the property the erec
tion of a milling plant and other bet
terments The development shaft is
to be sunk to a depth of better than
500 feet and the mine put in shape
for outputting It is now in shape
to make a small output but the sink
ing of the new shaft will makepossi
ble the reaching into the ore bodies
at a low depth and then connection
may be made with the old works for
safety and air purposes
Playing a round in a foursome with
Scotty Stewart George Williston and
Lou Robinson last Sunday Carl Smith
set a record for the local course which
will stand for some time In his first
round he scored a 38 and came back
with a 40 a total of 78 for the eigh
teen holes
Owing to the condition of the
grounds especially that about the put
ting greens it is a test of golf to
score anywhere near the par figures
of 35 but Smith was only three strokes
over the first round and five the sec
ond par for the eighteen holes being
70 The score by holes was as fol

The hunting season is drawing most
of the players away these days but
this will not last very long as one
having once been stung by the Golf
Bug never ceases having a desire to
hit the little white ball chase it and
hit it again The lure of hunting quail
ceases after they have been shot at
awhile for it takes a combination of
a sprinter and a shooter to bag the
limit then
A meeting of the Board of Direc
tors of the Club will be called some
time next week at which time several
important matters will be discussed
the most important one being the erec
tion of a Club House

As the Drift Approaches
Tom Reed Ground Ore Be
comes iRcher Crosscut
on 600 Continues
The west drift from the 400 level
of the Telluride which has been
driven toward the Tom Reed terri
tory is said to have broken into im
mensely rich material This drift was
in high grade mill rock when the won
derful new ore body was reached It
is from this level that ore is being
sent to the Tom Reed mill and which
is making a return of about 35 per
The development of the Telluride at
the 600 level is going on with all
possible rapidity A crosscut from
the bottom of the shaft that will enter
the ore body at that depth approxi
mately 100 feet below the lowest level
of the mine will open one of the larg
est lenzes of ore that has been found
in the east end territory This ore
body was opened in the winze from th
550 level nine feet of splendid ore be
ing cut and drifted upon The main
shaft was sunk to the new level to
reach the ore body and provide a ready
means of carrying on development and
care for production This shaft has
just been equipped
with larger ma
chinery and wiil be soon in shape to
care for any eventuality
j Tlie development of the Telluride
so ciose to the Tom Reed estate has
caused the mother company of the
camp to get busy with development
that has brought in a wonderful ore
body This ore will now be opened
at a lower horizon in the Reed estate
and we predict that the opening of the
vein at new and deeper levels will
leaven the whole district
