dark horse on the San Pedro we never
expect to live long enough to see it.
There is nothing there to build a town.
It is an unhealthy location to begin
with: has no agriculture to speak of,
and can never be more than a shipping
station for the mines, with a prccarous
popul ttion of a few hundred. We are
told that the railroad is yoins to do
wonders for this imaginary town. Nowj
we should like for some one to tell us
where railroads have built a town. Did
the Southern Pacific build a town at;
Sumner? Did it build a town at Colton'jof miles today, will probably co tr
No! but it destr-ycd two prosperous! Howard, who has 53 miles. Williams
(owns already built. A railroad com
pany may de-troy towns, and may aid
in buildiuir up towns; but it requires
the co-operation of an energetic people
supplemented l.ynatmal advantages,
to build up large towns and cities.
Then acain, we ate told that San Pe
dro is so near the Sonora line that it
will diaw a birgc proportion of the
S"nOra trade. Yes. it is alwul fifteen
miles nearer the Sonom line than Tuc
on, and the only outlet to Sonora is
up the San Pdro river via ihe San
J. ?e Mountain?, into a section of coun
ry that is but little short of a howling
wilderness. Th rv are not 2000 people
in the entire region of country in So
nora reached by this route, and their
entire trade w- uld not be equal to 300
Americans. Tucson opens the gate to
ihe rich and populous portion of So
nora ; her trade onnections are made;
;h' ie are old established lines of com
mimical bn between Tucson and Altar,
Magdelann, Hermosillo and all impor
tant settlements along the Sonora
Kiver. None of these, towns or settic-
nienis can be reached from a point east
of here, and all of this talk about a
new town a rival to Tucson is the
merest twaddle. There is no f ounda
tion for it.
We learn that arrangements are!
about perfected for the building of
three more stamp mills in Pima coun
ty. From present indications there
will be more slamps and smelters in
operation in Pima county by the close
of the present year than in all the bal
anee of the Territory put together.

The Las Vegas Optic of the 31st ult,
interviewed G. M. Patten, agent of the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe and
San Francisco railroad company, from
which we learn that Mr. Patten was
making preparations to go to Guay
mas with a force of twenty men to as
sist Mr. Mor.ely in locating and build
ing the road north. Mr. Morely pass
ed through this place on Monday of
last week en route for Guaymas to su
perintend the construction oftheGuay
m"i3 road. Up to this date we have
been unable to receive any reliable
information as to the route this road
will take; but as the managers of the
Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe road
are sagacious business men who are
working for the best interests of their
enterprise, we cannot believe that they
will overlook the rk'h harvest to be
reaped from the freight and passenger
trafic of Arizona. If they should
build their road via El Paso, they
would lose the entire trade of Arizona.
Besides, the route from El Paso to
Guaymas is over a very rough and con
sequently a very expensive route. The
route from Tucson is almost as easy
as from Tucson to Yuma. There is
not much difference in the distance oi
the two routes, but the Ar.zona ro ute
would pay, while the Sonora route
could not be expected to pay for sever
al years to come. Hence, we believe
that the " wise mea " of this gre;t
trans-continental highway will build
their road through Arizona and Tuc
son, but for reasons of their own, they
are not at present ready to say where
they are going to locate their road.

compared with early expectations; th-
sources of business for their road east

this section, etc. Gov. S. spoke freely I
of extending the road eastward byway
of San Antonio, Texas. He was a ht
te "elf" on our growth of sage brush,
for no well informed Atizonan claims
that this Territory ia at all equal to
Nevada, Utah, Idaho atid some parts
of California, in producing this
aromatic shrub, but as a erower of cac
tus, mesquite, paio verde and other
shrubs and iimber.it stands head; and
as a producer of the precious metals as
well as some of the inferior ones, Ati
zona is soon to excel any other of Un
cle Sam's political divisions. The
proof of this assertion is already in
sight. We can show a variety of ex
cellent desert, but California and Utah
have superiority in this respect. But
in our abundant riches, we are not
jealous. We simply and plainly stale
a few facts.
We don't like to complain ór find

the papers are kept bu-y in looking

justice to their territory. They gush
over at the least prospect of an im
provement on the Comstock, speak
with faint praise of Leadville, occa
sionally say a good word for Bodie,
but leave us most severely out in the

The Growth of Tucson.
While there is no wild speculation
in real estate and no excitement over
the "future great' city of Tucson, a
steady substantial growth is going on.
New houses are being built all over
tlie city and old ones are being re
paired. A large number of our Mexi
can fellow citizens are engaged in
making adobe bricks, and building
material is being secured for future
operations. While we do not kmk fr
an excited mushroom growth, we have
every reason to beli-ve that a steady
healthy growth will go on during the
Summer, and by the time cool weather
ins our town will have taken ?uch
shape as will determine the future
business locality, when our leading
wholesale merchants will begin the
erecii"n of substantial brick houses
in every way worthy the metropolis of
Arizona. We are fortunate in having
many substantial cool headed business
men, who do not become excited over
every idle story they hear, nor do they
become discouraged by the predictions
of irresponsible persons who have no
interests among us and know little or
nothing of our resources. Tucson,
without rails, without mines or agri
culture has grown to its present pro
portions. With railroads, and the in
vestment of large capital in our mines,
and the opening up of farms and
rauches, all of which must necessarily
increase every branch of trade, we
may safely calculate ou a steady and
It is estimated that forty million
acres of arid land will be redeemed ial
Colorado by the proposed artesian
wells. There Í9 a large amount of
land in Arizoua that may be redeemed
by artesian wells. But the cost of bor-
ing these wells at present is supposed
to be so great that the ordinary farmer
or ranchmen do not feel able to make
the experiment; but let the Govern
ment once solve the question by two
or three practical tests, and we have
hundreds of men who are able and
willing to go into the business. There
are perhaps from two to three hundred
thousand acres of land in Pima coun
ty which would produce excellent
crops, if water could be had.
Washington Group of Mine Mount
Wa hington Continued Large
Showing of Carbonate
Mount Washington, like Carbonate
Ilill. is one complete net-work of
mines, and mining locations, a very
large proportion of which show up
ore of a superior quality. Like Car
bonate Hill the mines are mostly on
the eastern slope ot the mountains,
though north of the Washington Camp
there are a low succession of moun
tains in which are found a number of
fine prospects carrying ore of similar
character and grade, and are in my
opinion, a continuation north of the
same leads described in my last, which
have their source in Carbonate Hill.
The Washington mine at the base of
Mount Washington, has some 00 feet
of shafts and drifts, exposing an iui-
mense deposit of yellow ochre looking
ore which is rich in gray carbonites.
The old prospect shaft on the Wash
ington is all iu ore and a drift or cut
some thirty feet west has failed '.0 de
fine the width. A vertical shaft was
sunk about 200 feet north of the pros
pect shaft, to a depih of eighty feet,
but as a result fire destroyed the wind
lass and burnt out the timbering and
ladder; I was unable to examine this
shaft. The Washington was one ot
the first mines sold in the district, and
is' owned by Messrs. Haggin and Tav-
is, San Francisco.
The Last Chance is evidently a con.
tinuatioa of the Belmont lode, so are
the Lone Star and Ella, which run
over the very highest point of Mount
Washington, where it is divided by
granite on the west, and lime on
the east. The Last Chance has
two years assessment work done upon
it, and has the appearance of be
ing a strong ledge. The Lone Star,
being the next location on the Belmont
lode, also gives evidence of strength,
though as yet but little ore has been
found. A tunnel has been run to a
depth of thirty feet, in vein matter,
The Ella comes next of this lode and
like the Lone Star isa strong ledge;
there is an open cut on the Ella of seventy-five
feet, all in ore. Shaft No 1 is
down twenty ftet and shaft No. 2 is
about the same depth. A cut at the
north end exposes a large body of ore,
about 125 feet wide, and averages forty-,
two ounces in silver.
Passing from the Ella east we come
to the Cincinnati, another lead that
gives evidence of strength and perma
nency. Some 200 tons of ore have been
quarried out in leveling up a place for
a dump and shaft which gives $120 a
ton in silver.
The It ck Island lies southwest of
the Cincinnati. So far there has been
little found in doiDg assessment work
on this .ocation.
The Chicago lies southeast of the
"Washington mine and eump. Though
developed to a limited extent a nice lot
ot ore is piled up on the dump. ja
We will now pass on to the west side!
of Washington Camp where we find;
the Columbia, which has a shaft downi
thirty five lVet; an open cut has been
dugout on the surface level, yielding
.sixty tons of ore which assays seventy
dollars in silver. The surface indica
lions are good and we may look for a
ood report from the Columbia.
The Continental, about half a mile
north, has a shaft down thirty -Ave feet
showing a large body of free milling
ere oí high grade. A contract for a
fifty-foot shaft on this mine Í3 now pro
gressing The Waco has been developed to a
limited extent, showing u;i a three foot
ledge of vein matter and a moderate
amount of ore which goes from $100
to $S00 per ton.
The Mark Twain has a 10 foot shaft
which shows up some pretty ore.
The Charley Ross claim has an open
'cut of 20 feet, and a shaft down 25
feet, all in ore that will assay $80 to
Messrs Chil Is, Thomas & Co., have
a shaft tlown on their claim 25 feet!
showing a vein of high grade ore.
The Davis miue lias several open
cuts, most of which expose tre, and a
shaft down some 35 iVet with some
fine loo'dnsr ore in the bottom. The

ore has been struck similar to taat
found m the Davis and Sunset.
The Redoutt:;bre and El Campo,
east of the Washington, both lo-k well.
But a limited amount of work has
been done on these claims, though
they are looked upon as good prop
erties. Tlie Key "West has a 10 foot shaft
which opens a vein of free milling
ore of high grade-
The Cachise. There has been con
siderable surface work done on this
mine, and a tunnel driven some 20
feet in shows a good quality of ore.
The Cinniamon mine ha9 its main
shaft down 50 feet; shaft No. 2 down
10 feet; shaft No 3 down 10 feet. The
nverage assay of the ore from the Cin
niamon is $90 per ton. It lies north
west of the Washington camp a short
The Ohio mino has a 6haft down 41
feet and another 15 feet, a cross-cut of
27 feet and a drift of 70 ieet, a l in go d
ore which assays $40 in silvir. Not
withstanding the ore of this mine is
low grade, it is, owing to the large
amount of free smelting ore in sight,
looked upon as a valuable-property.
and had it not been under bond, could
have bcen soId for cash at a C( nsiier-
aüie advance over the i rice for whiih
it was bonded.
The Roanoke, about a mile and a
half north of Washington camp, shows
ja'three foot ven 0f milling ore which
assays from $38 to $112 in silver,
The Eureka mine, west of the o'd
Mowry mill-site, has a 38 foot shaft
and a 50 Coot tunnel, which opens up a
large body of low grade ore.
In my next I will give you a de
