"sleng, Inc., a California, unit of tho nternatlonal Mining and Milling Company of Las V.egas,.. Nov., now ipcrallng tho King Solomon mine and nil! at Randsburg, It would appear hat the Rand mining district will lavo another well-managed producing gold mine. Thirty-four men are on the Job, 22 of'whom ore leasing successfully. Ten of them arc miners and mill workers on the company pay roll- and there are two "hard rocks" on the contract ob. "'••.'•'•"' Since the fifth day of October, 133,000 In bullion has been sent out. One sot of leasers, working on the 460-foot level, hah a milling last month 'of 45 tons that bfought returns of $41 a ton. A second set had a mill run on 53 tons that averaged $33 to the ton of their output from the 360- foot level.

State Figures When the year closed the state was credited with a total of 10,057 wells, a loss of four when compared with the number credited to all fields at the end of November. Of the total, 9039 were active, and 7010 were Idle when the year ended. Los Angeles basU field, nt end of the year, had ajjtgtal of 5239 wells, or 4049 active projM(pers and 1130 Idlers, while the coasta||»irea had a total of 1441 wells, or 899 active producers and 540 Idlers. A contract lias been awarded ' for running a ; long crosscut. About 600 feet of It has been completed. This advancement Is for the purpose of catching some of tho rich veins In the old upper workings of the early days. The work when finished will give the mine a 260-foot back. For tho present, the output of the leasers and the company Is handled by the company's 5-stamp mill, running on a two-shift basis. A new hall mill of 75 or 100-ton capacity, and a flotation process, Is now being prepared by a Los Angeles machinery house. Besides the milling plant, the firm has it well-arranged blacksmith shop, a! hoist and compressor, comfortable quarters for employes and a residence- office for the superintendent, T. E. 'Flnnerty. Power is supplied by tho Southern Sierra Power Company, and sufficient water from the Yellow Aster water system. VALUE OF ALASKAN SAN FRANCISCO, Fob; 6.—Value of the gold recovered from Alaska placers In 1932 is estimated to have been $5,312,000, or about $470,000 more than was recovered from mines of this type In 1931, says the United States Department of the Interior. This great increase appears to have been brought about by the especially favorable weather conditions, which afforded an unusually abundant water supply at most of the camps, and by the stimulation of development of gold placers because of curtailment In other Industries and the high price received for the gold In relation to other commodities. AT TREASURE'S SKE fl'nitfit Pnss Leaned Wire) McLAIN, Miss., Feb. 6.—A "gold rufih" which savored of the palmy "days of '49" In California was under way here after Iwo workmen found 1100 Spanish gold coins, an ancient diamond ring valued al Ihousands of dnlli.ra and other relics In the woods 'of Oa i nes creek near here. The workmen, Ah and West Sylvester,, brothers, were trekking along a path when suddenly one of them kicked up a shiny object. They Investigated further and found the rest of tho burled treasure. Tho discovery caused a revival of old Indian legends and scores of men with picks and shovels began a feverish search for more treasure. The valuables were buried, according; to the story going the rounds here, by a Choctaw Indian chief many years ago. The discovery was made on land owned by young Galries who married u daughter of the Indian chief. PROTESTS!! OF 35-1 LOS ANGELES, Feb. B.—Independent oil shippers have protested to the United States Shipping Board and the department of Justice a plan of the 36 oil companies to pool their tankers. In the pool It is the object to Include tankage both In use and empty. It is planned to pay out of the 42- cents-a-barrel rate for transportation from the Gulf to Atlanllc seaports 8 cents a barrel for nonactlve tanks and 3 cents to tanks that are out of commission. The protests assert that the plan Is Illegal »nd will result In killing off the small refiner. •» • * USE CLEVER METHODS TO PAY STATE TAXES (Asuociated Pretn Leased Wire) OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 6. — A system of using John Doe cashier's checks to pay gross production taxes on Illegally produced oil run from the Oklahoma City field was revealed today by Vice-Chairman W. D. Humphrey of the Oklahoma tax commission as the state Senate oil Investigating committee took a recess until Monday. Humphrey said lie believed the company will find that • taxes have been paid on practically all the "hot" oil run from the field, variously estimated at between . 6,000,000 and 7,000,000 barrels. One 'of the largest anonymous checks received by the commission was for $32,000 Humphrey said. "These boys have worked It pretty slick to avoid the 18 per cent penalty for falling to pay the taxes and at the same time trying to keep In the clear on their runs," Humphrey said. "Of course when we checked up on these companies and found some of them short on their payments to cover the oil run, they would produce the canceled checks to show the payment and we could then allocate the funds." 1932 GOLD OUTPUT BESTJR HISTORY (United Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Feb. 6.—The world's production of gold in 1932 was the grealesl on record, 23,911,000 fine ounces valued al $494,240,370 having been mined, according lo figures re- Leased today by the American Bureau of Melal Slallsllcs. This compared with a production of 22,168,000 fine ounces with a value of $468,212,560 In 1931. The Increase of 7.8 per cent In newly mined gold Is an Indlcnllon lhat Intensive gold prospecting has been taken up by thousands of unemployed throughoul Iho world. In addition tho unlocking of hoards In India, Great Britain and Russia released an almost equally large supply of monetary gold. Production In the United States also Increased with output In 1932 totaling 2,513,000 ounces valued at $51,943,710, compared with 2,396,000 and $49,525,320, respectively, in 1D31. The report pointed out that, al- Ihough the Japanese yen fell 58 per cent during the year, a condition which places a premium on gold, production In that country dropped to 394,000 ounces in 1932 from 430,000 ounces In 1931..
