Miami Daily Arizona Silver Belt (Newspaper) - September 8, 1915, Miami, Arizona THE DAIE ER BELT .VOL. .VIII. NO. 286. MIAMI, ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1915. PRICE FIVE CENTS THE DOUGLAS INTERNATIONAL. PRINTS ARTICLE ON THIS SECTION FROM ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN WRITERS OF THE S. W. COMPARES GIiOBE ANI) MIAMI WITH WARREN MINING DISTRICT—BELIEVES MINERAL ZONE MORE EXTENSIVE HERE. THE ft. G. IS FINE NEVER BEFORE HAS THIS PROPERTY, LOCATED IN THE GLOBh DISTRICT, SHOWN A CONDITION MORE PROMISING. PRESIDENT SMITH CONTINUES TO RECEIVE ENCOURAGING REPORTS—SOME OF THE LAT KST STATEMENTS. The following, which Is from the versatile pen of Joe Chisholm, has just appeared in the Douglas International: The skipper of this journalistic barque having requested me to pile some copy in the hold, I gladly avail myself of the opportunity to tell Cochise county folks a few facts about the Globe-Miami district; very willingly in view of the fact that many I meet from the mining camps of this county seem to have been mis-.nformed concerning the great mining communities in Gila county. In • Tombstone, Douglas and elsewhere I have been asked if Mexicans were employed in the mines at Miami Where such misleading news or-► lginafced is beyond the writer's ken, but it is easily answered by the assertion that nowhere in the Southwest are industrial conditions better than in the Globe-Miami mining dis trict. None but high-priced miners is employed, the scale being the same as that maintained in Bisbee; and the growth of the district, es peclally that of Miami, is without equal at present in Arizona. The steady production of the Old Dominion and several smaller properties at Globe, the constantly increasing ton nage being handled by the Miami company at Miami, the steady rounding into production of the Inspiration’s mine and its flfteen-tliousand ton concentrating plant, and the increasing output of the $2,000,000 V International smelting plant, are re 4 suiting in almost boom conditions in 9 the district. Considering the stability of the two main communities and the fact that there is more undeveloped copper prospect area south and west of Miami than was includ ed in the famous Warren mining district, at the inception of the unparalleled mining boom here that lasted until 1907, it requires no imaginative deduction to foresee for the Gila sec tion the same splendid conditions that characterized the years succeed ing 1903 at Bisbee, and its concomt tant city of Douglas. In the region north of here there is probably less chance of developing mines of such great depth and tonnage as was the case at Bisbee, but the Gila county mineral zone is more extensive and the copper ores lie nearer the sur ; face and will be developed, proven or dlsproven, with much less expense than was required in the Warren district, where hundred^ of feet of the lime capping had to be bored be fore even the prospect zone was reached. For the above reasons tho country adjoining on the west and south the present proven low-grade porphyries of the Globe-Miami dis trict should, in the not distant fut ure, be the scene of great mining ac tivity. I was asked to tell these few facts of the Gila mining district, but I cannot help adding that the activity in good old Cochise has been a sur prise to me. Bisbee is in its usual splendid condition; Douglas never was livelier apparently, and even Tombstone, that all us old timers had supposed moribund, is a live prosperous mining camp again, ever Cochise is to be given a run for Us place as the first of Arizona’ copper producing counties, however Gila, now second, will undoubtedly be the shire that will make the race against you. BOSTON. Mass.. Sept. 8.—The Boston News Bureau says: President Smith of the Arizona Commercial continues to receive highly encouraging advices from the property. Yesterday afternoon he received a letter from the mining superintendent to the effect that in the further extension of the drift on the 14th level, where recently crosscut encountered a 6 per cent copper vein 10 feet wide, a second vein has been cut which looks “very fine.” What is also very encouraging is that in proceeding with the develop ment of the Eureka property a vein of ore has been cut which shows a foot of solid copper glance. Never was the outlook for the property more promising. AFTER THIS EVE County Attorney Norman J. John son and Sheriff Frank Haynes today issued a statement to the effect that any and all persons operating punch boards or devices of a similar char acter will after today be proceeded against and arrested and prosecuted in accordance with law. I OR FOUR MIAMJ SCHOOLS, WHICH OPENED YESTERDAY, ARE ALREADY CROWDED WITH PUPILS, SAYS SUPERINTENDENT. IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL JUST WHAT NEW QUARTERS ARE NEEDED BEFORE END OF WEEK—BUT EXTRA ROOM MUST BE HAD. I ONE OF 1 LARGEST REPORTS FROM GUY MILLER OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF WESTERN FEDERATION SAY ALL IS O. K. ORGANIZER M’CLUSKEY OF THE MIAMI MINERS’ UNION RECEIVES WORD TODAY—MANY JOINING UNION. The Miami schools, which opened yesterday, are over crowded with pupils, as was expected by Superintendent J. D. Elliot and members of the school board. Mr. Elliot stated this morning that it will be necessary to secure three or four more rooms to take care of the children. As many children fail to attend school the first day or two, the attendance has not yet been checked up, but will be at the end of the week, at which time a more accurate estimate of the extra rooms required may be made. The shcool population of Miami increased greatly during the past few months. With the completion of the International smelter and a large portion of the construction work at the Inspiration concentrator, and the departure of the construction gangs, new men have come to the district to take permanent positions at the mines, mills and smelter. The construction gangs who have done their work and departed are the men who build big works; the men now coming in are the men who build homes and towns. They are bringing their families to Miami as fast as they can secure residences. Some are renting, some are buying and many are seeking sites upon which to build. And the coming of the families is increasing the school population and making additional school room necessary. Organizer II. S. McCluskey, of the Miami Miners’ union, today received a message from Guy Miller, of the executive board of the Western Federation of Miners. Mr. Miller has been engaged in the work of organizing the miners in the Cllfton-Morenci districts and in his statements to Organizer McCluskey he declared that the miners were Joining the union in large numbers. He said that while some little opposition to his work had developed at times at points where his mission was not understood, that in the main the outlook was brighter and more encouraging than ever before. There is no trouble in that seation at the present time. SUICIDE OF GILA COUNTY TEACH PHOENIX, Ariz., Sept. 7.—The body of the woman dead by the self administration of carbolic acid, which was found recently in a Washington street hotel, has been identified as that of Miss Rebecca McCue, who taught last year in the Olive district of Gila county, which is located twenty miles from the Tonto dam. She had written on the examination recently held in Phoenix for first and second grade certificates, but had failed to pass. The woman had been at the hotel since July 28. She was not driven to her death by poverty, for pass books and deposit receipts to the amount of almost $1,000 were found among her possessions. She had evidently intended leaving town, for she had sent her trunk to the Arizona Eastern station. An inquest will be held by Coroner DeSouza this afternoon. The officers today found that the decease! had written seventeen letters, all dated Sept. 3, and all except one addressed to Miss Tory of Roosevelt, the single exception being a letter to a brother residing in Duluth, Minn. The letters were pieced together by the officers. After she wrote them she had torn them up and thrown them into a waste basket. Her home appears to have been in St. Peter, Minn., and undoubtedly her mind, according to the letters, was unbalanced over a love affair. KEYSTONE SUIT IS AT AT END NEW YORK, Sept. 8.—New Keystone Copper company stockholders, at a special meeting, by a vote of 277,884 shares out of 358,174 outstanding, voted to decrease capital etorck from $3,000,000 to $39,797, naw shares to have a par value of $1. The property of the New Key-stoue company was recently sold to Inspiration Consolidated Copper company, which gave in exchange therefor 39^797 Inspiration shares The reduction in capital stock of New Keystone company is preliminary to distribution of the Inspiration stock share for share. In order to bring about the reduction in the New Keystone stock 241,826 shares now in the treasury unissued will be retired and shareholders will be of fered one share of new stock for every nine shares now he.ld. Suit recently brought by New Keystone stockholders, among whom was Carl H. Pforzheimer, to prevent the sale of the property, has been withdrawn, removing all obstacles from way of the proposed distribu tion. The first twenty-eight people the Silver Belt reporter met on tho street this morning told him Kirk Gunby was back. The twenty-ninth was Kirk himself. Explaining why he returned, he said he had rambled for a year and a month and a day and had covered the entire northwest portion of the world from the Mexican line to tn» place where Cook turned back, and found no town in all that territory with the life, bustle and circulating wealth of Miami. Most of the GOES TO DENVER— Johnny McNeil, a well known employe of the Miami Copper company and a resident of Miami sinoe the town was an infant, left today on a VISITED TONTO— L. F.

GRAND DUKE NICHOLAS SENT TO THE CAUCASUS, WHILE CZAR IS NOW COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMIES. MANAGER H. O. FITZSIMMONS OF THE GILA VALLEY BANK & TRUST COMPANY EXPLAINS THE HUSH. . Manager H. O. Fitzsimmons, of the local Gila Valley Bank & Trust company, stated today that yesterday was one of the largest If not the largest among all of the pay days of Miami. This arose from a variety of reasons. For one thing the big companies did not have their pay checks in readiness so that much money was turned in at the banks before the Labor Day holiday. This threw’ all of tho work upon Tuesday at the banks. Then again, Sunday and Monday being banking holidays, the checks received by the local merchants around town were turned in at the banks yesterday. In addition came the natural disposition of the general public to put a good deal of money in circulation on the Labor Dya holiday. At any rate, yesterday was a busy day at both the Gila Valley Bank & Trust company’s offices and at the offices of the Bank of Miami. TURN ATTENTION TO 8.—The BOSTON, Mass., Sept. Boston News Bureau says: Miami Copper company will earn about $4 per share during 1915, ac-time since he!cording to official estimate. Produc left here he was in Alaska, where he tried Juneau, Sitka, Cordova, Sal-dovia, Seward, Anchorage and other towns and they all made him think of the town he left behind him when he started out to cut his name in the ice where the sun would never melt it out. in the Arctic circle he found the light sox lie wore in Miami insufficient protection against the northern frost; but he refused to change them, got cold feet and started back to the coast. Alaska, says Mr. Gunby, is very much overrated. His partner, Boy Young, has a good positiou with a mining company at Juueau and will remain there. Kirk has come back to Miami to ^tart in where 4ie left off and grow up' with the town. He says lie expected to see some changes in Miami, but did not think it possible for the town to jump forward as it has in such a short time. tion is expected to total close to 42,-000,000 pounds, of which 18,400,000 pounds has already come from the first half year’s operations. Cost of production from July through December should be sufficiently low to make an average for the full year of 8 % cents.

Attention will be given shortly to the 4,000,000 tons of tdllings on the Miami dump. Preliminary work has been started In an effort to devise the best possible method for hand ling thia material from which a not recovery of at least 10 pounds of copper per ton is looked for. This would indicate ultimately a production of 40,000,000 pounds per annum to be secured at a cost of eight cents a pound. ALLIED AVIATORS RAID By the Associated Press.
