The big red shaft house on Gold hill, that attracts the attention of every visitor entering the city of Cripple Creek on the Short Line road, belongs to the Anchoria-Leland Mining and Milling Company, a close corporation that is spending considerable money in developing Gold hill.
The shaft house is like the officers of the company - solid and substantial. The officers are making a winning search for the ore. That they have faith in Gold hill is demonstrated by the work they are doing.
While others suspended operations, when conditions were not the brightest, the Anchoria-Leland people set an example and went ahead doing more and more development.
The officers believe that some day the mine will be a bonanza, and they are backing up their belief with their hard, cold cash, a fit example for others to follow.
The Conundrum mine, which is situated down the hill from the main shaft, is now yielding sufficient ore to pay all the heavy expense of operations, and that the management will soon be rewarded by finding as largo ore bodies in the main workings is the wish that every one extends to the plucky officers of the company.
The officers of the Anchoria-Leland company are:
Irving Howbert, president
C. W. Howbert, vice-president and general manager
F. H. Gay, secretary, and
Edgar Howbert, treasurer.
The officers, with S. N. Nye and E. A. Richards, form the board of directors.
