The Joplin Gtobe gives the following summary of ore production and price in the Joplin district: The camp totals for the ore production In the Joplin district for the year 1808 have Just been carefuly compiled and the results show that some sur- nrislng and more hopeful features for the district in the wonderful gains made by a large number of the camps even under the prevailing low prices for both ores during the past year. No less than eight cam|>s showed great gains In tonnage ranging from .350 to G.500 tons. Other camps showed decreases ranging from a small tonnage up to 10.000 tons. The gains lacked but 27.000 tons of evenly balancing accounts. Of the camps showing gains, Miami took the lead, showing an-Increase of 6..'iOO tons, and producing It all the last three-quarters of the year. The camp also Increased Its lead tonnage more than any other camp, adding a total of l.liriO tons more than It did last year. Webb Clty-CartervlUe came next in increase of production, increas ini: Its oiitDut over its 1907 record 2000 ton. Carthage came a close second, having almost doubled its outpnt. Spring City also heaviy increased Its production, which was close'y followed by Snrcoxle. Carl Junct'on. Quapaw and Zincite-Sherwood. The camps "ufferins- most in decrease were Galena. Alba, >TopIIn and Duenwek. There was an Increased lead production from Spring City and Miami, while Seneca appeared this year with almost 200 tons to its credit. A notable feature of the increase In production has been that it has been principally in log grade ore. The Miami ores that have been marketed for the greater part of the y^ar ran from 45 to 56 per cent zinc with heavy iron content. The later sales have been of mu3h higher grade owing to better concentration, and the outook for the camp in 1909 is very bright. The increase of ore in Spring City has also been divided between high grade blends and lower grade silicates. The ores from Sarcoxie have also contained a considerable tonnage of silicate. The Carthage ores have been high grade for the most part throughout the year, while the increased production from Carl Junction has also been made up of high grade concentrates. The average price of zinc, all grades, was $34.40 per ton. which, as compared with the 1907 price, is »9.28 less. The average price of all grades of lead was $55.03, which Is $13.86 less than the 1907 price. From this It ap- penrs that zinc ore nrices have fallen off 21 per cent while lead has fallen off 20 per cent from the nrices that prevailed during 1907. During the asme period the zinc production only fell off 9:4 per cent*, while the lead pro/lnctlon suffered only 6.7 per cent de.-llne. Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Roberts, a days this week.Elsmore Leader.
