MINKS AXU ."UlXIXt:.
Reference was made iu Monday's Daily
to the arrival in town of Messrs. Daroche
and Bigelow from the Sumner mine, with an
assortment of tho diiforcnt classes of ore
taken from the mine, and we promised to
give the rcidilt of assays when known. To
day Col. Bigelow has kindly shown us the ,
assay certificates six from Mr. Blako, and j
two from Mr. Keller aud given the lol
lowiutr information concerning the mine:'
The Sumner is better known to the pub
lic us the plumbago, stove-polish, or mica
ceous iron mine, than by its projcr name,
and is situate about a mile south of tho
Senator gold tnineof S. O . Fredericks & Co.
and three-fourths of a mile east of the Davis
mine, fifteen miles south of Prescott, on the
very head of the East Fork of the Hassay
ampa. Messrs. Dcroche ,and Bigelow have been
working ou the mine for two months past,
and have run an open cut into the vein, to
cross-cut it ut right-angles, fifty odd feet in j
length, the last 20 teet being m the vein,
live feet wide and 24 feet deep, and they
have not -yet reached the hanging wall of
the ledge. " Tho whole of the vein matter is
permeated with streaks and threads of mine
ral, all carrying more or less gold and silver,
which all "run into one well defined pay
streak which is encaied in soft, green soap
stone, and varies in thickness from the sur
face to the bottom of tho cut mentioned from
two to eleven inches the thickest portion
of the oro being the richest.
On the first discovery of the mine, last
fall, we. published assays which were of
picked specimens that run as lp'gh as 80Q
in gold and $1,500 in silver per ton, which
was surface oro.
The following assays are from average
samples of the ore as. assorted on the dump,
calculated per ton :
No. 1. Silver, $200.57; traces of gold.
No. 2. Silver, $122.51; gold, $1.25 total,
No. 3. Silver, $72.00; gold, $5.02 total,
No. 4. Silver, $13.5)8; no gold.
No. 5. Silver. $470.
No. 0. Silver, $3.14.
The above assays were from Mr. Blake,
the Nos. 5 and G being ore taken from the
threads mentioned outsido of the pay streak,
and the four first from the ore stacked up
for reduction, as are the two following by
No. 1. Silver, $113.13.
No. 2. Silver, $181.
xV choice lot of ore was scut to the Pinal
Company's smelting works, at Walnut
Grove, from which Mr. Geo. T. Uogle made
an assay, which yielded in silver $2,252,
rrnlil S-V. tntnl . ! 9.77 wliinli Ja f li Imo-Ii.
est wo Have hcant ot trom tins very peculiar
Wc arc informed that Mr. Keller has
made tests of the ore for tho purpose of as
certaining the proper method ot working,
and has reported that it is notmilliugorc
a fact rather diacouragiug to the mino own
ers, for, though tho average valuo of the
assays would leave a margin if it could be
worked at the Senator or Aztlan mills, near
tho mine, it will hardly stand transportation
thirty miles to the Agua Fria smelting
works, ami tho charge of $75 per ton for
smelting. Speciuions of tho ore havo l)cen
-K-ut !- v Francisco for analysis tho rc-
uh of il- .is promised to be given m
Specimens of the rich ore which luyo been
burnt in a blacksmith's forge, can he seen at
W. J. Howard's, in Blake's assay office, and
at D. C, Thome's Cabinet Saloon, together
with the raw ore, which all agree in pro
nouncing most wonderfully rich and pecu
liarly Etrange. Mr.Thos. Cordis, Internal
Revenue Collector, who is interested in tlio
mine, has at his office a lot of the different
classes of ore from the mine, which he will
be pleased to show to any one who takes an
interest in minerals.
On asking the Colonel what the Sumner
Company were going to do, he said that the
only way he knew to make the old thing
work, was to go ahead and get more of tho
$3,200 ore and walked off with a smile
that plainly intimated he thought it couUl
Bill Smith's ten-stamp quartz mill, near
Wickcnburg, is uow working about eighteen
tons of Vulture ore, per day, and Bill is
making money. Five teams, each hauling
seven and a half tons, make three and a half
trips per week between mine and mill.
These teams belong to Dr. Jones.

The Senator mill, situate ia Ilassayampa

cott. in the nino timlior. is now. and has boon
for a siiort time post, idle, owing, it is said, j
to the breaking ot tonic pam ot the ma
chinery of the new, or wet-crushing, mill.
The proprietors arc e-cry day expecting
duplicate castings of the broken parts, but
they being men of great encr,gy, have deter
mined to await their coming, by slow trans
portation, no longer, and will, wc learn,
commence dry crushing just so soon as Mr.
Chipmnu can arrange machinery, etc- for
this old process. We will not say that Mr.
Chipman is the best mill man in Arizona,
but wo do assert that he is one of the liest.
Ho supcrintouded the erection of the new
Senator mill and d.d hi work so well that
nobody has, or can, find fault with it. The

The Aztlan mill, situate a hhort distance
south of Prescott, also in the pine timber,
is now the property of the Peek 3Iining
Comnanv and is Iwimr run under direction
of Dr. Goodfollow, who is highly spoken of
as being a competent man. Ihe mill has
hud a very successful run, under the Doctor's
mtmngunicnt; in fact, it has never yet made
a misslick, since tho lir?t day upou which it
was started by Messrs. Bowers fc Richards,
its former owners. It docs custom work,
and is now running on Tiger ore belonging
to Mr. D. C. Morelund. It will shortly start
on silver ore from Black Canyon, a district
which N, by tho way, now one of the most
promising in this part of the Territory. Its
location is some forty miles to the southeast
of Prescott in a straight lin?. The road to
it is, of course, some farther. Not many
months have elapsed since the real prospecting-
was done in the district, now there are
several good mines opened, ore is being
shipped and the greatest confidence is here
ami thcro oxprosscd concerning Its brilliant
future. By-and-by, some capitalist Avill put
up a mill and oth:r works down there, for it
is certainly a rich district and its mines are
convenient to wood and water.
Messrs. Butler and Minsr got back to
Prescott Saturday hist, from the Agua Fria.
Wo have interviewed the General and got
from him groundwork for the following:

Sheep. These animals are now doing
well all over this scctiou of the Territory.
A recent letter from Mr. Arthur Yeckloy,
who has charge of a band belonging to the
writer, gives us tho pleasing news that they
are fat. He has kept thorn, all winter, on
the Black Mesa, near J. W. Swilling's place,
on the Agua Fria, some fifty milos southeast
of Prescott, whore snow has rarely fallen.
We were at ono time a little dubious as to
the success of wool-raising here, but all
doubts arc now dispelled. Sheep will do
well, in Northern Arizona, but wool-growers
jiimi httce better facilities for getting their
produce to market, else the business will
not prove as attractive as we hope it may.
Persons who follow the business in Southern
Arizona complain of a species of grass
which, thev say, works through tho skin of
sheep and frequently kills them. Wc hear
no complaint of this kind hare; nor have
complaints been made of the same by inte
rested parties iu any of the northern coun
ties. To the Editors of the Miner i I would ask
whether the Yuma Sentinel (in its large typo
aud magnificently leaded print), which re
ferred to iirmv affairs iu its last issue, is aware
of the fact that tho roport that paper attrib
utes to Lieut, ilauna's hndmg ten men Killed
was never mado by that officer-. It is evident
that the Editor of tho Yuma Sentinel does
not read the Arizona Mixeii with much care
for that journal in no wise authorizes tho
assertion that any one can constantly read
in it that young officers are ordered from re
mote Posts to lleadquartcrs ibr any duty,
much less for ostensible purposes; but that
paper evidently desires to get a Uuger in

COI,. AVOOLSEY, OX TUU YUMA SXTZX-
Piinxi.v, Feb. 20th, 1877.
2b the Jrisonn Miner:
I see. bv the Yuma Sentinel of the 17tU
inst.. that they are after our 7nV. Under
the head of "Square Steal," the immaculate
Redondo. as you know, voted for the Globe
City road bill, both before and after the
veto; considered it a Yuma measure; would
bring Yuma City in direct competition with
New York in supplying Globe District. I
think the Yuma delegation should be proud
of their vote on "the Square Steal bill."
provided, however, that they voted disin
terestedly, which of course, they did. In
the simplicity of their honest natures, they
never could for a moment have entertained
tho idea that any one but a perjured villain
could vote for their $25,000 steal, to build
castles for the village of Yuma. The Dele
gations in Council from Maricopa and
Yavapai ncvor withheld appropriations for
the Penitentiary on the lame plea of econo
my, but on the brnad principle of right and
a cloar knowledge of their sworn duties.
Nor will anv future Legislator, who has anv
regard for his oath of office, ever vote one
dollar for the Territorial Prison while the
title to the land on which the PrisoaJs.!
built is vested in the THlffge df Yuma, afif
"When in the course of human events the r
juvenile editor of the Sentinel shall learn of
the honest and friendly offers made by the
Delcjrations in Couucil from Yavapai" and
Maricopa to the Hon. G. 21. Redondo, in
reference to Prison appropriations, and the
grounds on which that gentleman requested
those oners, he will again exclaim, "What
docs it mean 1"
I will here say to the gentle-voiced editor
of the Sentinel, that trhough my Christian
spirit and lamb-like meekness, I can find
many excuses why he should charge mc
with sinister motives in voting for the
Southern Pacific Railroad measure. Look-
ing from his standpoint and surroundings, I
cannot imagine how he could, evea secretly,
entertain au honest idea, much less openly
and disinterestedly esousc a measure that
is for the general good of the Territory.
And again, the gentle youth must have
been poorly posted on Legislative matters,
as the record will show that my voto was
cast with all the Southern measures. Wc
stood in with Yavapai for the Capital; first,
bcciuse every intelligent man, woman and
child in Maricopa county desired it, and in
the secoud place, our interests arc identified
with Yavapai and Mohave counties. With
them we find a market for our products and
thus with us for theirs. It comes in very
bad grace for the Yuma Delegation to go
home croaking and crying wolf, for, had
they got away with their pet schemes, the
town of Yuma would have been too warm
for their comfort They should have been
grateful to tho delegations North for pre
ventiug them from consummating the overt
act. I am no prophet, but I do predict that,
should their families still increase, children
yet unborn will rise to sing the praise of
those true men of tho North who saved
their sires from eternal infamy, by voting
down their pet schemes.
