FINANCIAL CRISIS IN SAN FRAN
CISCO. Suspension of the Bank of California
Heavy Run on other Banks. Gloomy
Tlic following dispatch to the Miner, re
ceived last night, portends evil times in Cali
fornia. No institution in tliat State has so
many business complications with merchants,
fanners, block-raisers and business men gen
erally as llio Hank of California, and if the
suspension announced in this dispatch shall
"prove an absolute failure it must neccssanlly
involve thousands of people who arc unable
and wholly unprepared to meet such a mis
fortune "Wufeliall look anxiously for further
San Dieo, August 20. The Union of this
city publishes an extra this evening announ
cing the suspension of the Bank of Califor
nia. Other banks sustained a heavy run to
day, and a black day is expected to-morrow
in San Francisco.
Specimens kkom Final. Sir. James A.
Wilson, of E. N, Fish & Co., Florence, was
- in-.tpwn. this week on his way to Los Ange
les and had with him a valise nearly filled
with specimens from the Silver King, Athens,
No Mistake, Pike, Spotted Tail, Josephine,
II 1 it. 11? t A
ana ucuccmcr mines, in uic i inai mountains.
These mines arc all located in or near "the
. little brown hill on the Stonenian grade,"
and - certainly corroborate much that has
been said with reference to the wonderful
richness, of the Pinal ores ; nevertheless we
fail to recognize any of that bright vigin sil
ver the di.snatchcs tell us of: in fact it is not
necessary for it to be there. The ores in the
Silver King and Athens are rich enough as
they arc, without being gilded by sensation
reports. The specimens Mr. "Wilson exhib
ited to us would certainly work several
thousand dollars to the ton, Fomc of them,
wo should say, being fully equal to the se
lections we have seen from the Peck, which
they very much resemble. As with the
Feck, the question is not, How rich is it ?
that is a settled fact but, How much is
thcro of it? If this Summer's discoveries
prove to be as extensive as the- arc rich at
. the surface, Arizona is the best silver mining
country on tho face of the earth. Discov
eries have but just begun to be made, and if
they hold out in going down, another twelve
months will reveal enough silver mines to
supply the world.
"Why Set it up on us ? The Citizen, pub-
lished at the Capital, where the new laws
come boiling hot from the legislative pot,
ought to know better than to make the fol
lowing assertion, when the statutes provide
that no more than 2.50 on the one hundred
dollar.? of taxable property can be levied :
"As will be seen by our report of the Su
pcrvisor'rt proceedings, the entire tax levy
-territorial, county and school is only ijl.o
on each S100 of taxable property ; last year
it was R2.45. And bv the way we may men
tion that in 1S74, Yavapai county's rate was
$X10 on each S1O0."
The fact is Yavapai's rate in 1874 was
Si50 and not $3.10, and in 1S73 it is 2.25,
i If wo aro correctly informed Yavapai scrip is
selling for more than that of Pima to-day,
which would seem to indicate that .she is
nearer out of debt. Will new Pima scrip
bring 92' csnts cash.
Wk are sorry to have published for truth
a canard with reference to the discovery of
a rich gold lead in tho Peacock mountains,
If parties will not write tho truth we much
prefer that they would not write at all. So
many foolish stories of rich discoveries have
been published that we had determined to
bo Tory guarded, and felt quite sure of tho
reality of what our Cerbat correspondent
wroto or it should not have found a place in
our columns. Why ho should have written
as ho did is unaccountable, as there was cer
tainly "nothing in it."
TiunTr-Finii Parallel. Tho Los An
gclos Express announces an important fact
in connection with railroads in Arizona. It
claims to know that John P. Jones and his
backers an English company are negotia
ting for the franchise of the Atlantic & Pa
ciGc R. R. Co., with a view to building a
railroad at once from Los Angeles, Cal., to
St. Louis, Mo. Tho Los Angeles and Inde
pendence road being the starter.
The editor of tho Citizen pleads innocence
of crirno and doesn't want to be hung to
maintain his theory ; thus, practically giving
up tho fight. If one's faith is lit to live by
he ought to be willing to die to maintain it.
"We are sorry to seo him weaken when put
to tho test.
C. W. G kaiui art has written us from San
ta Rita Mountains, and claims that he had
authority to advertise for the Insurance Co.
The'company takes a different view of the
matter, and our claim languishes just the
same as if ho hadn't nnv authoritv. Tt 5
comfort, however, to know that ho will pay
it himself when he gets able.
W. . Moword has recently been ap

tain, agency, and, the Citizen says, left Tuc-

FROM MOHAVE COUNTY.
Mineral Park, A. T., Aug. 20. '75.
Editor Miner : Knowing that j-ou are
desirous of chronicling any and all events
from the various parts of thp Territory that
could interest the readers of the Miner, I
undertake to make up a letter for your pa
Truth compels me to say that our county
has never, during the past two years, pre
scntcd so gloomy an appearance as it docs at
present. Last Spring and Winter every one
thought we were just stepping out from
night of adversity dark with disappointed
hopes into the bright morn of prosperity
nay, almost realized hopes. Rut, notwith
standing the brilliant outlook, we, to-day, arc
still " hanging on the ragged edge of dc
spair," waiting for better times ; still confi
dent that the da- must come when " th
camp will come out." It may be that I am
out of order in stating the case so adversely
to the usual bright story of newspaper cor
respodents, and it may be that newspaper
men don't want anything but silver stones
with golden fringe.
You nil heard, last Spring, about the
Greenwood mine; how a 10-stamp mill was
bcimr nut un. and how it would soon be
turning out the bullion 1 Well, it went up.
made a short run, didn't pay, and is to-day
idle. Tho chance arc the mine was a spot
ted one (gold), and that the ragged-pant:
boys from Prcscott had worked that pocket
about out before they sold it to the unfortu
nate buyers. Rut, mark you, the Grcon
wood is a gold bearing ledge, stuck in among
a mass of silver ledges, and if it is a fraud it
is no sign that tho great huge silver veins
such as the McCrackin and Rurroare failures
also. No, we admit the Greenwood was
tried and found wanting, but the McCrackin
is just as good as over, and the prospecting
done, which is not a little on that vein, has
proved that if the rich croppings were not
the foreteller of what some supposed, that
the ledge is a good one and will justify ex
tensive working and a heavy outlay to put
it in paying condition, such as building mill
and so forth.
Col. Davo IJuel has been trying to get up
smelting works to smelt the ore, but as he
has not yet done the former it cannot be
fairly presumed that he has accomplished
the latter. We shall see what he may do
anon. We have had lots of 11 shoal-water
capitalists;" they havo given this county
jaw-bone ad libitum ad infinitum until we
have just about shared the fate of the Philis
tines. I tell you, a new mining camp can
get along lirst rate without wrecked mining
speculators who, through bonding mines and
hastening to San Francisco, seek to resurect
their large fortunes by selling again at a huge
bonus. Any miner in Mohave county who
would now bond a mine to the wise-looking
owls irom 'Frisco, or any other place, may
be put down as a "damphule."
Hut, after all that is said and done, we
have got our mines here yet ; they can't be
packed away if they can be tied up. The
McCrackin has been under bond for some
time to men who have proved exceptions to
the rule of bonders, in this, that they have
done some work ; not extensive, but skir
iiiishinsr work. The chances now are that
when Col. Carl Davis, who has just cxamin
ed the property, makes his report, that the
balance of purchase money for the mine wil
be paid, and work engaged in vigorously.
It is rumored that the Greenwood mill wi
soon run on McCrackin ore.
Were it not for the fact that some of the
best looking ground on the McCrackin is
tied up by some jumpers, who took and now
hold possession, there would be two eompa
nies now at work instead of one.
At Mineral Park, an attempt is being made
by Davis & Randall to do something. They
are and have been for some time running the
Pioneer mill. It gives employment to sev
eral men, teams, choppers, etc., and is turn
ing out some bullion. A bar was turned out
ten days ago worth 1,00G, and they have
more than enough crude bullion on hand to
make another like it now.
Mr. R. Canfield bought tho Pioneer mill
site and two weeks ago broke ground for the
erection of his perfect 5 stamp mill, roaster
and all complete ; tho machinery for all
which i3 now on the ground. Just as work
commenced, word came from San Francisco
which has caused a delay, but on Monday
next work will bo resumed, and the mill will
bepccdily put up.
You published a lotter last week from Ccr
bat, telling of a very rich discovery of gold
mines, in the Peacock mountains, by Rucks-
baura, Cory and RIakcly. Not ono word of
that unaccountable yarn is true, not even the
deer hunt; tho story was all made up from
wholo cloth. Why an person should mako
an innocent newspaper a party to such a
falsehood is moro than 1 can tell.
Ridcncur is now sinking on his ledge at
Hackbcrry ; he proposes sinking 100 feet be

Everyone tells the same story about that
mine, aud that is, that it is the finest thing
extant; reliable men candidly assuring me
that there is easily 250,000 in sight, and
all that without going more than 30 feet
down. I shall go out next week and tako a
The manly stand of the Miser (indeed of
all the papers of our Territory) in defence of
our public school system, has earned and
obtains the profound gratitude of the peoplo
of this county. The fulsome flattery of in
genious advocates don't seem to effect you a
bit. When I was a boy, our folks were pret
ty poor, and if they had had to buy school
ing for us eleven children we would not have
got much. There aro lots of j'oungsters in
Arizona in about the same fir, and there are
some folks that never had any education,
who wouldn't wake up to sending their chil
dren to school if it "were not that we make
the school house a public concern ; and then,
added to that hint, we hare made a law that
will give them a kick if they don't take the
hint without it.
Not long ago a big man
went to a Miner with a tearful story that
Mr. Citizen was jteelins: him because ho had
thrown stones at our country school houses
and then would not lend him the Citizen's
columns to nlead his case throuirh. The
course of tin; Miner on that occasion re
minds me of the wa- our dad used to do i
any of us went home from school complain
ing of a thrashing by the master; ho wouh
say, "A-ha, 3011 must have been doing some
thing wrong", and thereupon he would pro
cecd with flogging number two. That big
man got about the same kind of comfort
from the Miner. Aprojm, our district
school has just closed a three months' term
Miss Matthew, the teacher, succeeded ad
mirablj as a teacher, and I never saw little
folks make such fine progress in like time:
from scarcelj knowing their letters at th
commencmcnt several are now reading rcadi
ly in words of four and five letters. Rut,
fear, I am extending this communication too
far. At some other time I would like to
discuss the reasons why a man may champi
on public schools in Nevada, and seek to de
strov them in Arizona. SiVAri
Pima Countv Items From the Citizen
of the 14th inst.:
.News lrom the Ustnch mill and mine is
very good. Thomas Ewing and James II
loolc were out this week, and say the mil
has been running very smoothly for sevcra
days, daily crushing eighteen tons. It would
run on till to-day when a clean-up will be
made, and the prospects aro that cxpecta
tions will be met. Ore is abundant and
much of it shows free gold, and from all ac
counts, it seems impossible that there should
be anything but a satisfactory result, at the
lirst and all following clean-ups.
Visitors to the "Old Mine," report their
belief that it is the most valuable in this
county. It was expected that a workin
test would have been made ere this. Work
iugmen are still taking out ore.
