V\ hut may prove one of the most
important discoveries in the bistort’
of the camp was made Wednesday
by John Molder, says the Morenci-
(. lii ton Standard, it is a promising
vein of coal, located just below the
box In Silver basin gulch. Mr. Mold-
er came on the blossom on the moun-
tain side Prospecting it with a pick
he quickly came Into a body of coal
that looks as If It would run into stuff
of excellent quality with a little depth.
From the bottom of a three foot hole
a sack of coal was taken that later
proved satisfactory for blacksmlthing
uses. On the vein, running almost
east and west the discoverer found a
number of good looking surface show-
ings. He has located several claims
on tile lead under the law Roverping
coal lands and has interested money
for development worn on the vein.
This work will be little more than
two miles out from Morencl.
Copper Queen Increases Force.
What is not a generally known fact
about Bisbee is that during the past
tew weeks the Copper Queen compa-
ny has Increased its force about the
mines by the addition of at least 400
men. says the Bisbee Review. This
addition was engaged and put to work
gradually during "the time stated, so
that the Increase was brought about
in a manner that would not he gen-
erally noted, but the fact still re-
mains that when the employes receive
their pa y for February an amount
footing up several thousand dollars
in excess of last month’s payroll will
he distributed by the company.
The employes who made up this
large additional force were mostly
miner-. A considerable portion ol the
teen were th■ who were recently
engaged to fill the positions created
by the company's decision to have un-
der-foremen or “straw bosses," at the
head of the many divisions of men
employed in the stopes. These pesi-
tkms alone required at least sixty-five
men, all of whom will receive high
salaries. The miners and other hands
engaged also, for the most part, will
be handed out substantial sums in
compensation for their labor at the
end of each month, so that it Is safe
to say that approximately at least.
$25,0011 more wifi be distributed in
the February pay day than for the
That this big Increase in the
amount of currency to be generally
circulated in this city monthly will
not have tiny ill consequences goes
without saying. On the contrary, it
will helgi very materially to increase
the activity and life of the camp.
Ami this Is still by no means an
end to tic good things which are
promised Bisbee ol the hands of the
(topper Queen company. These min-
ers recently put lo work, with the
large force here to lie constantly em-
ployed, will help greatty in the work
of turning out a greater production.
Greater production of ore means the
necessity of larger facilities for re-
fining and it is understood that with-
in about three mouths the mammoth
smelters, now nearing completion at
Douglas, will be started in lull blast.
When the Douglas smelters are in
operation it is probable that the
Queen will endeavor to do work along
the line of production that will eclipse
all of the company's previous efforts.
To do this, even more men will lie
required in the mines than are now

encourage the locators. They believe
it wlli go $5 or better to the ton, in
which event, considering the body of
ore in sight, they think they have
the making of a big property. Anoth-
er ledge discovered and located goes
much higher In gold and though not
near so large Is considered the more
valuable. Both discoveries were
made a day or two before the pros-
pectors ran out of supplies ami about
the time they had given up hope of
the trip panning out anything. They
had been following float for over two
weeks in vain whim they came on the
big ledge. On their return they ex-
pect to thoroughly prospect the veins
they have located and are hopeful
that in the smaller one of the two
they will come across something pret-
ty rich. Besides gold there are evi-
dences of copper in the ore of both
Refused $25,000 for Interest.
An expert who recently came from
the east to look over the Santa Rosa
mine, near Morencl, made Joe Tan-
ner an offer Saturday of $25,000 for
his interest in the company owning
the property. Mr. Tanner refused
the figure. His interest in tiie com-
pany amounts to about two-thirds of
the stock issue. He considers its
value several times the amount offer-
ed and believes that work now being
done will shortly bring in ore that
will more than make good his opin-
ion in the matter.

Miss Fannie Clark will regret to hear
of her demise late last night at St.
Luke's hospital. Although her death
was not unexpected,' as she had been

Miss Clark came to El Paso last
fall for her health from New York
City, where she taught school for a
number of years.
Since residing here Miss Clark
in fide many friends anil had become
well known in church circles. The
direct cause of Miss Clark’s death
was tuberculosis of the lungs.
Big Low Grade Gold Prespect.
Frank Keppler and R. Phillips came

what, they believe to be good property
and will return to it as soon as they
finish outfitting for a several weeks'

they have located is at Red mountain,
