FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1909 - THE DAILY SOLIPHONE

NEWPORT - SEPT. 3 - CONSIDERABLE INTEREST IS BEING MANIFESTED JUST NOW IN THE VALUABLE DEPOSITS WHICH HAVE BEEN FOUND IN THE HILLS A FEW MILES FROM HERE . THE WHITE RIVER MINING COMPANY HAS SECURED CONTROL OF A NUMBER OF CLAIMS IN SHARP COUNTY , ARKANSAS WHICH ARE BEING DEVELOPED AS RAPIDLY AS POSSIBLE . SAMPLES OF THE ROCK AND QUARTZ WHICH HAVE BEEN EXAMINED CONTAINED PAYING QUAINTITIES OF GOLD , SILVER , COPPER AND ZINC.

THERE SEEMS TO BE LITTLE QUESTION BUT WHAT THESE HILLS ARE RICH IN MINERALS OF VARIOUS KINDS.
