Other buyers Totals 2,778 4,705 7,673 CATTLE The week started out with u comparatively small run of cattle, both here and at other points, with the result that there waa a general advance In prices all along the line. The local supply was hardly large enojgh to encourage compe tition from all the buyers and some of the packare were Inclined to hold off and wait a more favorable opportunity for making purchaaes. Others apparently needing the cattle bought the limited offerings fieely at prices ranging anywhere from strong to 10&16c higher than the close of last week. There was nothing at all choice or fancy on sale, but anything at all desirable In the killing line was disposed of with very little difficulty at the advance noted and' a rood clearance was made. There was probably forty straight loads or cows and heiters on sale mis morning, and. with a good demand from all classes of buyers, the market wajl active and. prices generally strong 10 10c. nixoei' man uie close of last week. Medium and common cows met with a very poor inquiry, how ever, and did not show any Improvement aa the outlet was very limited for canning stutr. Although the supply of stockers and feed era was well cleaned up last week the feeling was rather weak at the clone and neither yard traders nor country buyers showed any disposition to pay stronger prices this morning. Desirable offerlnga of any welgm sold at Just about stedy tig ures, while common, light and medium stuff waa rather hard to move, and. in aome cases, prices looked hardly as good as last week. The movement was reason ably active, although the volume of bust ness waa comparatively email.

Other points reported light recelpta this morning, rind this, following the shut off in supplies toward the close of last week, caused both local packers and eastern shippers to be come anxious for the stuff and they lost no time in getting out after It. Early bids were around ltxjiloo higher than last Sat urday and. aa sellers were generally In a mood to accept that advance, the trade was reasonably brisk from atart to finish, and practically everything was disposed of by the middle of the forenoon. Tops reached $6.46, the high point ot the season, as against 'a top of $6.30 on Saturday, and a bulk today of $6.1(&6.30, aa against a bulk of $6.00fl'.15 on Saturday. The undertone to the trade was strong throughout, although the advance waa due entirely to the light receipts at all points. SHEEP Only a moderate run of sheep waa reported in this morning and the quality of the offerlnga was about the aame aa at the close of last week. Toward the close of last week the trade developed considerable strength on account of thu colder weather and light supplies and that waa about the condition that the market waa In this morning, all classes of buyers taking hold freely at unevenly higher prices.

COUNSEL Chalmers Wilkinson, Phoenix, Arizona. PROSPECTUS The Company owns 3fJ0 acres of rich mineral land abounding in copper, also yielding silver, gold and iron, located in the midst of the richest known copper district of the world. Themines in this Copper zone, such as United Verde, Copper Queen, Detroit, Calumet & Arizona, Miami, Ray Consolidated, Old Dominion and Gibson, etc., produce a large per cent of the Cop per of the world. i This property is situated in the Horse Shoe Bend of the Gila River, directly opposite the Important mining town of Kelvin, on the rheonix and Eastern Railroad, Pinal County, Arizona. The river, which half circles the property, supplies opportunity for ample water power at nominal cost, also watec for reduction works; and the railroad, which also half circles and crosses the property affords ample transportation facilities, im mediately at hand. DEVELOPMENT WORK A large sum has been expended in developing and proving the value of the mines, the extent, character and availability of the ore bodies and richness of the. ores. Reference is made to reports of George C Clark, E. M., and H. C. Erman, E. M., both experienced Engineers and eminent authorities on cop per properties, from which the data In this pronpectus Is compiled. These reports, with maps, smelter returns, and other data, are on file with the WINDSOR TRUST COMPANY of New York, open to inspection. This development work consists of shafts, tunnels, drifts and cross-cuts, the total underground work aggregating 2,574 feet, the larger part of which is in good ore, exposing and making available approximately 8 00,000 tons of ore that will averaga 7 per cent copper and from $1.50 to $3.00 per ton In silver. This 2,574 feet of underground work does not, however, Include numerous shafts, prospect holes, and excavations which have been sunk"Bnd 'made upon tbe property, each of which located bodies of rich ore, proving that the whole 360 acres Is richly understreaked with rich bodies" of copper ore. There are thirteen distinct veins which have been traced across the property, east and west. - J : THE VALUE OF ORES Approximately 400 tons of ore have been mined and shipped to nearby smelters; the original smelter returns are on file at the Windsor Trust Company, New York, and are open to Inspection.

WHAT IS PROPOSED RESULTS OF NEW EXPENDITURES Four shafts have been sunk as follows: No. 1, 100 it.; No. 2, 185 ft.; No. 3. 80 ft., No. 4 100 ft.; all ot which are in ore which gains in richness as depth is attained. It Is proposed to continue these shafts to a greater depth, run drifts and cross-cuts so as to mine 600 tons a day; install Improved machinery and facilities for mining and handling ores; Install au electric water power plant and build reduction works of a capacity of 500 tons per day. The capacity to be increased from time to time as conditions justify. Seven per cent, copper will yield 140 pounds to the ton, which at 14 cents a pound is $19.60 per ton; allowing 7 cents a pound for the cost of mining and converting to bullion, transportation, etc., gives a net profit of $9.80 per ton, or a net dally profit of 600 tons, or $4,900 per day; yearly profit of $1,716,000, or, adding the value of the silver, $2,115,000 a year. The following extract is from Page 4 3, Department of the Interior U. S. Geological Survey- WASHINGTON PRINTING OFFICE. 1908. -George Otis Smith, Director. 1 Riverside District Mine Production Pinal County, Arizona "This district was quite productive in the number of shipments of ore. Tbe largest tonnage of ore mined and shipped out of the region came from the Riverside and Bryan group of the SULTANA-ARIZONA COPPER COMPANY and the Troy Manhattn property, near Kelvin. The former produced 45,838 pounds of copper and 653 ounces of silver." Tbe SULTANA-ARIZONA, with its vast bodies of high-grade ore, should be able to pay large dividends to stockholders even If Copper metal should decline to 10 cents a pound. For the purpose of providing tbe necessary funds to install these improvements and for the erection of reduction works, with a capacity ot 500 tons of ore per day. , 100,000 SHARES OF TREASURY STOCK ARE NOW OFFERED FOR SUBSCRIPTION AT PAR, PAYABLE AS FOLLOWS: $2.00 per Share to accompany the application for the subscription, and the balance of $3.00 per Share payable in ten days after notice of allotment.
