Abstract

I saw Mr. Bell today in reference to the contract of the Ocean Magnetic Iron Co and Mr. Edison Ore Milling Co. ## He explains that they have been greatly delayed in commencing operations, though parties from whom they have endeavored to purchase deposits. That contain negotiations are pending now and when therese are closed they will order a number of machines and go actively to work. He said they might start in a few days and it may be a few weeks, but certainly within a comparatively short period they would be prepared to go ahead. ## I cannot find here any record of machines having been supplied to the Ocean Co. Their contract promises that they shall pay certain royalities on ores separted--so much per ton. They say that as yet they have done no work and until they commence I do not see how we can anticipate any payments from them.
