Rumors have been current on the
street of irregularities in the payment
of the last dividend by this company,
and a committee has been appointed
by the American Board to investigate
iu affairs. It is widely believed, how
ever, that the mine really possesses
merit, and that the present low price
of the stock is solely due to the mis

Eoitok Citizen : Globe has got it
again. This time It was struck in the
Li mem a, which is a clfiim belonging
to the La Salle group. This .group is
located about one mile from the cele
brated Cox & Coplin, and about two
from the Emeline. Sometime last
fall there was considerable work done
on this group and considerable good
ore was taken out and milled. Ilise,
of the Globe Mercantile Company,
who has charge of the property, con
cluded to hare more work done on the
Limenia, and this time he struck it as
rich as could be asked for. The vein
on this claim shows a large width on
the surface, and the work done before
only prospected a portion of it, and
with this in view, Mr. Hise started his
wonc so as to see if the best ore had
been found. This resulted in his
finding a pay-streak about three in
ches wide where discovered, that is
enormously rich. It will go $20,000
per ton, if not more, as it is almost
pure ailver. Add this to the C or 8
feet of good milling ore, and it places
the Limenia among the best of our
richest properties. We congratulate
Mr. Ilise on his discover-, and hope
that in this group he "may receive
all he has put into prospecting here
tofore which is no small amount
and a good big stake besides.

Tucson, December 7.
Editou Citizen: Having just re
turned from a trip to Arivaca I
thought a line or two might be ac
ceptable. I found quite a change had
taken place since my last visit, oyer a
year ago. At Arivaca the wide street,
hotel, stores, dwellings, etc., look
quite like a start in the right direc
tion, and at McCafferty's camp every
thing was lively. The iron work for
the new ten-stamp mill was on the
ground, and the timber for setting up
the machinery was on its way and
quite near, having been a long time
on the road, owing to accidents,
breaking down, etc. Everything is
ready lor immediate erection of the
battery stamps, and the engine, pans,
and other machinery are already in
place, oo that soon we shall hear the
welcome sound of their stamps. A
large quantity of fine-looking ore is
at the mill, and two shifts of men arc
busily engaged running drifts and
sinking tbe main shaft, now ISO feet
deep. Drifts of 350 feet arc already
made aud uprises worked from the"
lower level about 30 feet, so that the
mine will soon- be in a condition to
slope out ore to a good advantage.
The walls are well defined and at low
er level of great width, in some places
being from eight to ten feet apart,
everywhere showing good ore, much
of it of a very superior character. I
look for a mine here that would do
great credit to any part of the Terri
tory and will do much for tho district
of Arivaca, proving that earnest, per
severing effort only is needed to de
velop fine property in that district.
Such men as John McCafferty and J.
M. Kirkputrick, who, m spite of
croakers and blackmailers, fight
every obstacle and show their faith iu
the country by steady, quiet work and
successful" effort, are the men who
will bring light out of darkness and
do much to place Arizona mines on a
firm basis, thus counteracting the ef
fect of others who sadly damaged the
property of the country by reckless
I had not time to visit Oro Blanco,
but heard from reliable sources that
the Warsaw was all that could be de
sired, later developments bringing to
light large quantities of high-grade

velopments. Other properties in the
immediate vicinity were looking tin
in consequence. Soi.on M. Ai.i.is.
A Citizen representative, after a
visit to the gold camp near GIoIh;, last
summer, declared it his belief that in
the near future that section would
astonish the world with its production
of the precious metals. At that time
there were but two mines in the camp
upon which work was being actively
prosecuted the Golden Eagle and
i Townseud both of which were then
described in his letters to this paper.
On each of these mines was being
erected a mill to work the ores, and
notes of progress have frequently been
given our readers from our regular
Globe coi respondent. From a private
letter received to-day we learn that
the first cle n-up of the Golden Eagle
ten-stamp mill, after a run of seven
weeks including the many delay
incidental to first starting amounted
to $80,000 in gold and a very consid
erable amount in silver. The mill is
an ordinary silver mill, and is thus
enabled to successfully reduce the oie
from the start. The neighboring mill,
howcvcr.S the Townsend, was con
structed on the old pattern, with the
sole view of saving the gold, and as a
coiis-cquencc. it was found that it doc
not save within 45 percent, of the
altieof the ore. It has accordingly
been shut down and a contract has
been let for its reconstruction on the
plan ot the Golden Eagle mill, with
an addition of live more stamps,
making it of equal capacity. We look
for grand results in these mines and
the many valuable claims in their
A New Hook on Arizona him! New llex
The Boston Economist of a late date
says: " Arizona mining interosts arc
growing as the county- is being
opened. Prof. Jacobson, who has re
cently made an extended tour through
New Mexico and Arizona, has pub
lished a graphic description of his
trip. The interesting paper closes
with a specific description of the
mines of Arizona, near the northern
border of the Mexican States of Sonora
and Chihuahua. They are exactly like
those of Mexico. The veins are in
primitives formation. Some carry ga
uds, and some native silvor. Ore
shipped from the richest, the Stone
wall Jackson, has brought in San
Francisco $12,038 per ton. The- are
like the rich mines of Chili, that

lew year' working to the depth of
COO feet produced $145,000,000. and
up to 1S33 produced $480,000,00(1; one
nugget from these mines weighed
2700 pounds. The Le Veta Negre
mine, just over the Arizona boundnry
produced $7,000,000 in six months.
The total product of Mexico has been
$4 ,493. 140,420. There is evory reason
to believe that Arizona will p'rove as
rich in mineral as the marvellously
rich sections of the adjacent States of

Two forty -ton railway locomotives
arrived at San Francisco from the
EaM. last week en route to Guay mas

making such rapid progress toward

cause of the fire was'not learned. The

blow to Mr. Mundellus. He is, how

and without doubt will at once tot to

YVliieli, Like tho Snviuc f
Von h Man' Torc,!- Miii-Ii.
With the new time-schedule of the
Baltimore and Ohio, which went into
effect oil Sunday last, a new through
train was added Irom Chicago to the
East, which now gives the popular
old road three daily trains out of this
city morning, noon and night. All
three of these trains run every day in
the week. The 5:15 p. m. train con
tinues, as it has for months past, to
be an entire night the quickest to
Washington of any train out of this
city. The Baltimore and Ohio is the
only loute between the East and the
West via Washington, all other lines
reaching the National Capital vh
circuitous routes. The new Balti
more and Ohio sleepers are attracting
wide-epread attention and creating
the most favorable comments. In
many respects superior to the cars in
use on other lines, they have at the
same time all the advantages possessed
in other cars.
Of thr improvements, the most
noticeable one is the length ot the
car, it being from one to two sections
longer than the ordinary sleeping car,
and is higher, wider nnd more com
modious in every way. An improve
ment which will add very much to
the pleasure of smokers "en
route" is the remarkably large smok
ing apartment in tbe car. It is
fully ten feet square, affording ample
accommodations for a dozen people,
and this, too, without occasioning any
inconvenience whatever when the
door is opened or shut. This advnnt

on the through express in the morn

Hurrah for ratiiRonln.
It looks very much now as if Pata
gonia District, to which so many eyes
have been turned as a coming great
camp, is on the eve of a genuine
' lMom,'' and that on the camp's mer
its. For some days past several ol
the bouders of the famous Washing
ton ' pool," the terms of which trans
action have already been laid before
the Citizbx' readers, umong them
Mr. E. E. Eyre, the celebrated broker
aud capitalist of San Francisco, have
been lnnkinir a thorough and final ex
amination of the property, and the re- ,
suit is a dclinite conclusion to con
sumate the sale. On the first of Jan
uary next another installment of the
purchase money, $30,500 will be paid
to the ' pool " sellers, and within 00
days a 00-ton smelter will he erected
at Luttrell City for treatment of the
ores, l his is goou news tor washing-
ton Camp and Patagonia, and for this
result the people of that district have
largely to thank Hon. J. K. Luttrell,
to whose indefatigable energy much
of it is due.
Right on the heels of this intelli
gence comes the report of a new and
most important strike iu the Alta,
near Harshaw It consists of an un
expected development of nearly six
feet of chlorides and horn silver, and
it will probably dotermine the com
pany to erect a mill for the mine in
stead of a smelter.
A private letter from AVashiagton
Camp to & gentleman in this city states '
that a new and very rich strike has
been made in the W. C. Davis reinc,
the locality being in the prospct tun
nel at the north end. The ore is said
to be the richest ever struck in the
camp. This will be good news tothe
many people interested in seeing that
locality taking its proper place aiming

Mr. A. M- Bragg, the well-known
blacksmith and carriage buildei of
this city, has returned to town from a
recent visit of inspection to his claims
on Temporal Gulch. He reports pro
gress of the most flattering kind in
that section, and says the result of tho
recent assessment work is astonishlnc
The ledges prove to be large, rich and
invariably improve in both respects
a- depth is attained. Timber is plen
tiful and of large size in the gulch,
and water exists in the neighborhood
of the mines in ample quantity. The
climate, Mr. Bragg says, is simply
deliehtful, and it is pnssiDle to sleep
out of doors in comfort. There is
undoubtedly a cood field there for
capitalists, and money judiciously ex
pended in development is almost cer
tain of speedy nnd profitable results.
Among the properties visited b Mr.
Bragg was the Rupert, a magnificent
propect belonging to Thomas Hughes
and D. W. Lyons. Work is being
vicnrouslv urosecuted on the claim,
and the shaft is now down 40 feet, all
in ore that bears a wonderful resem
blance to the famous Silver King rock.
It is tho purpose of the owners to
thoroughly develop the property, and
there is no question as to the result.
Messrs. Parkcs and Perkins have a
splendid claim on the gulch about a
mile and a half from the Rupert, from
which they are taking out rock which
shows free gold in plentiful quantity,
some ol the ore assaying as high as
$700 to the ton.

0re of a similar character, rich in ga
iena anu native saver
Messrs. Ssam Hughes and i. u.
Williams have a 40-foot shaft on the
Emma, which has developed a fine
vein of silver bromide and chlorido
Mr. C. D. Reppy, one of the propri
etors of tbe Tombstone Epitaph, in
comDanv with Mr. Williams, owns a
splendid prospect in the gulch, known
as the Silver Bullion. The shaft is
now down 27 feet, and the vein, which
showed only six inches of indifferent
looking lock at the surface, has now
developed two and a half feet of ga
lena and carbonate ore that assays
high in the hundreds.
Mr. Bragg has himself some six
claims in the vicinity, three of them
being on the Rupert ledge. He has
had the assessment work douu on all
of them, and is highly elalett over the
result. Ho brought in some very rich
oie from the different ledges, some of
which he presented to the Citizen
cabinet. If the work which ho pro
poses to expend in development shall
continue to show up good results, we

The Grand Central.
Mr. E. B. Gage. Superintendent of
the Grand Central mine at Tombstone,
returned home Monday evening from a
brief visit to this city. In less than
two months Tombstone will have in
the Grand Central another great bul-.
lion.produciug bonanza. The 30
stamp mill, now building, will not
have been completed a day too soon.
The developments of the mine are
such as to warrant a much larger mill.
It ha proceeded from a mere pros
pect to a great mine without any
flourish of trumpets. The capital in
vested in its opening has been ex
pended so quietly, yet luteiiigently.
that comparatively little is known by
the outside world of the real worth
and wealth of tbe mine. The man
agement of the property is entirely
consistent witn the character of the
duporlnteudeut . Quiet and unassum
ing to a marked degree, Mr. Gage
has pursued the same course in regard
to his mine as has characterized bis
conduct during the years since he al
lied his fortunes with those of the
Territory. The Citizen takes the
liberty to compliment not only Mr.
Gage himself, but the company which
he so ably represents, on tbe grand
results attained, and congratulate them
heartily on the fortunes which lie in
the masses of ore awaiting the drop
of the stamps. Tombstone has been
particularly fortunate in tbe class of
Superintendents who have been called
to manage her leading mines, and to
them, as much as to the enormous
riches which have lain so long con
cealed under the surface of her hills,
is due her great present and coming
For some time past there has been
gathering in this city a small army of
what it would be rank flattery to de
nominate -' bests. " Prominent among
them have been the class of
" strikers " who infest the side streets,
begging of tbe passers-by any sum
tbey deem it possible to obtain from
their victim. Most of them are im
postors, who would rather ro to jail
than work, and who are ready for any
kind of petty mischief which may
offer it-elf. The police rightly attrib
uie the recent burgtarh s to thi rl.vs

Shepard and Muhoney -omnienctd a
raid on the gang. Seven of them
were arrested, and most of tbem were
ordered to leave to-n nnder pain of
more severe punishment, as vagrants,
and this is probably the best means of
breaking up the evil. It is to be
hoped that tbe good work will con
tinue uctil the last ' striker" has dis

The era of improvement in Tucson
seems to have fairly set in. and in
nothing is it more apparent than in
the efforts of our business houses to
adorn and enlarge their stores. It is
not long since that a show-window
was not considered necessary, and the
only indication that informed a passer-by
of tbe nature of the business
conducted within would perhaps be a
small pile of goods at the door, crowd
ing the narrow sidewalks and prov
ing a stumbling-block to the unwary.

Shortly before three o'clock the
other afternoon a farmer trom the vi
cinity of Hampstead appeared in front
of the Stock Exchange and entered
into conversation with a citizen who
was waitlntr bv the door, by saying:
"The convention m there breaks
up at three o'clock, don't it?"
" Yes, that's the hour," was tho re
"Do you know Jay Gould when
you see him?
M Oh, yes."
" Is he in there?"
" I presume so."
Well, I wish you'd point him out
to me when he comes out.
The citizen promised to do this, and
within a few minutes he kept his
word. The farmer took a good look
at the railroad and telegraph prince
and then turned and asked:
" Are you dead sure!"
' Oh, yes."
' Can't bo no mistake?"
"Well, its about as I suspected.
A few days ago a big slouch of a fel
low halted at my gate and began
measuring my ground with a tape
line, and squinting around in the
most mysterious manner. I went out
to see what he was up to, and after
boating around for a while, he said
he was Jay Gould. I'd heard and
read of Gould, hut I didn't know what
he looked like,"
" It must have beon a fraud."
" I'm sure of that now, I pumped
around to find out what he was up to,
and he finally said he wanted mv
place for an orphan asvlum. He was
going to build one as big as a palace,
and lake care of all the orphans in tbe
" And of course yon treated him
' ' Didn't I ! Why, for three days he
lived on tho tat ot the land and slept
m the parlor bedroom! He was go
ing to give 525,000 for my lard, and
the way we killed chickens and turned
out sweet cake for him made tbe old
woman sick. He finally jumped the
house and took my Sunday suit and
fiddle worth eight dollars."
' I don't believe Gould would steal
' ' That's what I thought, and so
came over to look at him. It wasn't
Gould at all, but some base imposter.'
" And you arc so much out? "
" Wall, it 'ooks that way, but the
experience is worth something. It
may not be a week hofore some one
else will como along with a ten-foot
polo in Jus hand and a theological
seminary in his eye and claim to be
Russel cage, and the way I will knock
him down and step on him and walk
over him and drive him into the file

Mr. Tyson passed through town on
Thursday last en route to San Fran
cisco with the first shipment of gold
dust from the placers at Plomoso. He
had with him seventy ounces of gold
dust, the result of three days mining
of the four Stephens machines now in
successful operation at that point. He
informs us that Doctor C. M. Seeley,
the President of the Arizona Concen
tration Company-, is now on the
ground at Plomoso conducting oper
ations in person, and there is em
ployed at the present time over sev
enty men. The difficulty experienced
heretofore in obtaining a sufficiency
of efficient labor has been partially
removed by the recent importations o'f
white labor from San Francisco, and
the Doctor now anticipates fair sail
ing, continuous running and grand
results from this time forward. We
are informed that the company con
template extentiing their operations as
soon as practicable by the erection of
additional machines at the Choyos,
Middle camp and other placers in

throughout tho Territory. We con
gratuhtte the Arizona Company upon
the assured success of their enterprise.
