The Uttest aad largest mining boom
is without doubt in the aew district
on Cherry Creek, known as California
District The interest in that section
is daily growing greater and "strikes"
of great value are reported almost
dailv. Already several important
sales have been made in the district, the
latest of which was the transfer of the
Texas mine by Mr. Young and others
to Messrs. J. II. Galey and Winter
brothers, for the snm of $10,000. The
property was bonded by the latter
gentlemen some time since, and the
bond has not yet expired, bat the
character of the developments made
since have convinced them that the
mine is a Bonanza, and they announce
their intention oi' immediately closing
the purchase. Mr. Galey left Tucson
on Saturday night for San JTranclsco
rta purchase a :ft-toa smelter for tEe
Texas, and his associates expect to bo
turning out builion before the expir
ation of 75 days. Grading has been
commenced for the reception, of the
machinery and work is vigorously
pushed on the mine itself. The Texas
ledge, which showed 30 feet of gslena
ore on the surface which assayed $40
in silver, now. nt the depth of 60 feet,
shows ore which assays $400 in silver,
and which appears to be turning in
character to milling rock. It is said
to be a remarkably rich property, and
other nrosnects in the vicinity snow
equally well for their stage of devel
opment. There are also Bome very
rich looking copper claims in the

two town-sites have been laid out on
Turkey Creek. One, Chiricahua

in the Citizek last week. The other,
which has been christened Galey-

others. Mr. Maxton acting as Secre

a large forest of pine Umber from two
to six feet in diameter, and there is a
splendid chance for some enterprising
capitalist to put up a saw-mill there,
as it could be run by water power.
Game of all kinds range through the

is described as a very attractive plaec.

Of Interest to Mining Men.
The San Francisco Chronicle of
November 21 contains a very interest
ing article on the condition and pros
pects of the State Mining Bureau,
which was established iu June last in
San Francisco. It is an institution of
great importance to the trhole Coast,
though its objects and interests oc
cupy a much wider field. Regarding
it the Chronicle says:
It isthe first institution of titu kind,
so far as can be ascertained, ever es
tablished in the United States, and iu
progress is observed with watchful
sympathy and helpful interest even
by the far-oil' New England States,
who semi messages of encouragement
and more tangible contributions. The
object of the Bureau is manifold to
develop the mineral industries cf the
State, encourage the corresponding
manufacturing industries, to exchange
and give information upon these
points, to establish a State museum
for the entertainment and information
of the public, and make themselves
generally useful in a variety of minor
ways. Properly conducted the insti
tion will strike the hardest blow at
stock-gambling which that enticing
amusement has ever received. When
people learn that the opportunity is
before them to obtain, free of charge,
reliable and unbiased information in
regard to the ore products and devel
opments of any mine, they will not be
cajoled by false reports of mythical
bonanzas into buying stock at a fancy
price, only to see the bottom finally
drop out of the market, and their little
fortunes swamped in the fathomless
abyss. It can be made a valuable
auxiliary to legitimate mining enter
prise, for the poor man who wants to
sell his mine or procure funds for de
velopment, can make it known through
this medium, and the. rich man can
buy or invest his capital in perfect se
curity against misrepresentation or
Two large cabinets are reset ved for
Arizona minerals and curiosities, and
eactfanecimen placed on exhibition be
side the label on which it is placed,
ha just -below in plain sight a slip of
printed paper bearing the name of the
mineral and the exact locality in
which it is found, also referring by
numbers to the catalogue. This fact
should induce our mine-owners and
prospectors to forward to the Mining
Bureau samples and specimens from
their mines and claims, and in view
of the awakening interest in Arizona,
they will find it to their highest ad
vantage to contribute what is in Uteir
power to the soccess of the Bureau.
In this connection it might also be
well to give a few extracts from the
circular ot Prof. Henry G. Hanks,
State Mineralogist of California, in
charge of the Bureau, for a ropy of
which we are indebted to Mr. Solon
M. Allis, of, this city:
Heretofore, mining in California,
and throughout the country generally,
has been chiefly confined to the pre
cious metals, while the State and
Coast at large are rich in many other
minerals possessing great economic
value in connection with the arts and
manufactures. Now that railroads
are being built which offer increased
facilities for transportafion, the util
ization of mineral substances hitherto
considered worthless, is no longer a
problem. Old mines and mining dis
tricts that were abandoned because
inaccessible, and for want of cheap
and rapid transportation, are again
attracting attention. As rapidly as
possible, everything bearing on these
subjects in the way of practical and
reliable information will be gathered
into the State Bureau, to which the
public will have free access, at reason
able hours during every legal day of
As every article of value sent to the
Bureau will become the property of
theState for the use and benefit of the
public, and will be carefully preserved
in the Bute Museum, and as it is desir
able to make it as instructive and at
tractive as may be, donations of other
articles of interest, such as views,
pictures, paintings, curiosities and
works oT art in snort, anything which
would add to the general interest of
the Bureau and tend to make the
Museum a popular resort for infor
mation and study, are solicited.
Miners and prospectors are re
quested, when new finds arc made, for
better determination as to value and
character, to alwiy8 accompany ores
with samples of the wall and country
rocks, with written descriptions of the
same. It is desirablo that every mine
in the State and adjoining States and
Territories which has a name should
be represented in the Bureau.
Every article sent to the liareau will
become the property of the Slate, for
the use and benefit of .the public, and
will be carefully preserved in the
State Museum. As it is desirable to
make the Museum as instructive and
attractive as possible, the co-operation
of the public rtt large is solicited.

A Rotuark:ille Cuye in the Santa Klta
Mountains A Itrlof Account of the
Itesulls of Kecont l'artial Investl
For several years the existence ol a
curious cave near Grcatcrvillu has
been known to the miners of the vi
cinity, but the difficulty of thorough
exploration has deterred many from
visiting it, and half its wonderful ex
tent is as yet unknown. From Mr.
P.J. Coyne, a well-known and reli
able prospector, who is in the city in
the city in company with Mr. John
son, a Cmzim reporter on Tuesday
gathered some interesting facts re?
garditlg the cave, the result of a par
The cave, which is known by the
miners as the Aztec, is located about
four miles south of the Grcatervillc
placers, in a limestone ridge. Quite
recently a party of minors numbering
eight or ten, including Mr. Coyne,
determined to discover if possible the
extent and resources of the care, and
provided themselves with ropos, can
dles and other necessities. Thoy ex
plored 17 rooms in all, the corridors
and approaches to which extend for
nearly a mile from the entrance.
They experienced great difficulty, as
their progress was frequently inter
rupted by abrupt breaks m the piano
of the cave, at which breaks they rap
idly used up their available supply
of ropes. The cave has two entrances,
which lead into au oval cavity, thenco
a corridor leads into a large room,
and thence into a still larger. In
from the latter are two smaller cavi
ties, and these comprise the extent of
former explorations. In them have
been, found at various times in the
past relics of Indian occupation, including-
arrows and skeletons. In
one place several Indian skeletons
were found in a depression in tho
floor ot the cave, evidently fashioned
by human hands. This latter room
is described as being of marvelous
beauty. It is Irregular in shape ami
is full of all the various forms which
the action of lime has the power to
create. In one of these rooms is a group
of almost perfect statuary. It con
sists of a large block of limestone in
the shape of a man, woman audchild,
the man being In the center, and also
closest resemblance to
humanitv. The head is especially
like that of a man, having tho fea
tures almost distinct and surmounted k
by a bat. A short distauoe awhT
from the group, in the flickering caudle-light,
the illusion is said to bo
At this point the cave discloses the
strange feature of being two-atoried,
to reach the lowcrTOoms of which it
was necessary to descend D3 moans of
wr - .. . . r 4 1 . ..1.1
ropes. 11 ere me extent 01 ui uiu w
plorations cease, and the adventurers
had to be careful lest some new and
strange feature ot the cavo cause them
trouble. In one of a group of three
lower rooms was found a huge stalag-
. . . . , . I,
tnite, which was instinctively rail
ed Pompey's Pillar. It is three
feet in diameter at the base, and
lessens gracefully in size to the roof
of the cave, "30 leot high. This is
probably 600 feet below the Surface.
From the rooms last mentioned a
corridor leads to a very largo and ir
regular cavity, and from this small
corridors lead to several very beauti
ful rooms, which were given the
names of different members of the
exploring party. The ono named for
Mr. Coyle is the largest in the cave.
JJrout what was named " Halo's
room" the party followed a steeply
inclined tunnel 75 or 80 feet long,
which terminated in a large abyss CO
or 70 feet in diameter. After lowering
one of the party down tho perpendic
ular sides front the mouth of tho tun
nel as far as the remaining ropo would
permit (about 70 feet), and failing to
find bottom, the explorers named it
the "Bottomless Pit," nnd retraced
their steps to the surface, resolving to
return at a future time and see " what
there was in it." The oxploration of
the "Pit" will reveal some strange
features, as there must be some outlet
to the open air at the bottom, Mr.
Coyne stating that while tho air was
oppressive and stalo at a number of
the remoter recesses of the cave, tho
atmosphere in the "Pit" was fresh
The CrrrzBN is promised an account
of the future exolorations by the party.
The special train taking Col. Gray
and party to San Francisco met with
a serious accident 15 miles this side
of Yuma this afternoon. The engine
"jumped the track and was ditched,
and the baggage car was thrown across

was Mr. Bruce, the eaiueor, who had

3Ir. Y. M. Griffith, of the pioneer
stage firm of Kerens & Griffith, re
turned home on Tueday from a
somewhat extended trip hrousli New
Mexico to 1 Paso. Uu took the stages
of the National Mail and Transporta
tion Company at Lordsburg, his route
to El Paso being by way of Silver
City, Fort Cummings and Mesilla, n
total distance of 215 miles. Mr. Grif
fith states that Mr. O. 11. Smythe,
Superintendent of the stage company,
left a few days ago to look up the
stations and prepare lor the immediate
opening of a direct lino from some
point on tho Southern PaeifTc prob
ably Florida Point or Membres Sta
tionto El Paso. This will reduce
the stage travel to about one hundred
miles. The company is also about to
open a stage line from Florida Point
to moot the advancing branch of tho
Atchison road which has been started
froa near Fort Thorn to meet the So
uora Knilroad building from Guay
ma. Mr. Griffith traveled part of the
way with ex-Governor Anthony and
the Chief Engineer or the Atchison
road, and from them learned that
steel rails-are now arriving at the cud
of tho road in large quantities, enab
ling the company to once more re
sume rapid progress of construction.
The Atchison road is now graded to a
point nearly one hundred miles south
of San Mnrcial (near Fort Craig), and
tho rails have been laid to a point 50
or CO miles from that station. Near
Jtrort Thorn the Sonora road branches
from the main line, and that portion
between the latter and the point of
crossing at Florida Point will consti
tute the connecting link for overland
travel. The Florida Point junction
will bo made first, the intervening
distance now being less than a hun
dred miles. The distance on the main
lino to El Pas.0 yet to be built is some
thing, more. On the 24th inst. the
Atchison road commenced at El laso
to grade up the river to meet the main
line, and a few days later a Southern
Pacific grading party arrired at
Franklin (across the ttto Giande from
El Paso) to commence the hea?y grad
Regarding El Paso, Mr. Griffiths
states that there are as yet few Amer
icans arriving in the town. Frank
lin has about three or four hundred
people, most of them waiting tor the
boom " which it is believed will
come with the railroads, and the daily
arrivals are considerable. As to the
future ol tho town, Mr. riflUhs says
it has few resources save the business
which the railroads will create. There
is no mining in the vicinity, ami the
agricultural resources on the Ameri
can side do not amount to much. Real
estate at Franklin is very high, and
the Atchison people are negotiating
for forty . acres of land between the
town and the river. Should they fail
to make the purchase they will be
forced to move the piacc of junction
further down the river, which would,
of course, kill the new town. A good
lodgiiig-house is at present the only
business opportunity open, that
branch not being overdone like the
others; but there are nn buildings to
be had, and putting one up would be
a matter of considerable risk and ex

Tho three Pima Indians who killed
young Muncie near the Pima Agency,
au account of which appeared in the
Citizen some weeks ago, were
promptly arrested and are now in the
hands of the authorities of , Pinal
county. It now appears that their
object was robbery, as Muncie was
woll-drcsscd and had the appearance
of carrying money. One of the trio
rode ahead of the unfortunate man to
attract his attention, while the other
shot him irom behind. As he did not
fall nt once, but continu-jd to walk on,

TalkjuK about Tucson funerals, our
moraine coutemporarv rriiniHls us of
the most grotesque, though at the
same time the most pitiful funeral
procession it was tv;r our lot to sec
iu this pueblo. It happened but a day
or two ago that a couple of dilapi
dated wagons were seen coming from
the Church Plaza, dragged by two
pairs of tho most di".-ouraged mules
one can picture in the mind. The
creaking vehicles were kept together
by rawhide thong which !acid and
interlaced each other like network.
The crazy wheels rVyirfved at angles
of 15 degress from the axles ami were
also held from hopelessly breaking
down by a liberal uuiitnt of rawhide.
In the f oromofl wagon lay the body of
tho deceased a poor Mexican. His
friends hail lieen uuible to secure a
eofiin for the remains, and the sole
covering of the earMily frame con
sisted or a shroud. As the procession
started from the church, the mules,
wakhiK up front their drowns, at-
lempled to drag their queer-looking
loads along, but their suceess was
hardlv satislactory. The creaking
and the rocking othe wheels and the
body of the. wagons reminueu us 01 a
ship in a heavy storm. The progress
was sbw and uncertain ; in fact it was
daneercus. As they approached the
corner of Con grens street, a sudden
lurch nearly broke the foremost wa
gon down, and if it had not been far
a man in it, who held the corpse, it
would have been pitched foremost in
the dust. It was a sad procession, the
sadder as the well meant efforts of the
friends or the deceased to give the Hi-
neral an appearance of decorum and
grandeur which all its surroundings
belied made it grotesque. AVe fol
lowed the proce -ion and its weeping
people with the eye for a mnmont,
whoa it disappeared in Court street,
no doubt to pitch and creak along,
until, after a weary journey, the body
would be placet! at rest.
