called upon the Secretar3- ol the com

garding the enterprise, and was in
formed that it is the intention to pro

as is consistent with prudent manage

the works and for the amount of pat
ronage to be expected have been ob
tained, and the company recently pur
chased block 34 in this city for a lo
cation. The land thus acquired lies
at the north end of Main street, at the
point where the railroad track enters
the city limits. Mr. A. P. Pettit, the
architect, has just completed the plans
for the ofQces of the company, which
were shown the reporter. Tbe ofHce
building is to be an exceedingly hand

plans for the gas works proper have
not jet been completed, and Mr.
Fried stated that it would be several
weeks liefore he could give any deli
nite dale for the commencement of the
erection of the works. He would
state, however, that the company
were satisfied that the Investment
would be a laying one, and that no
unnecessary time would be lost in
nroceedinc with the work. The mem
bers of the company are men of cap
ital and enterprise, and the people ol
Tucson may be certain that theis
branch or permanent improvement in
this city is in good hands.

from n Unliable Sourco-A Visit to
tho Camp from Col. Thomas Trice,
and His Favorable Opinion.
GiiEATBitviLi.E District, )
Sauta Rita Mountains, Dec. 4. )
Editor Citizen : You say you are
always glad to hear from the outsi le
camps, aud a line or two concerning
the developments and improvements
going on around us here I hope will
not be ami-ss. Our camp, though ap
parently dormant and idle, has been
slowly and quietly shaping itself to
soon take a placo in the front rank ot
the rich camps in Southern Arizona.
The Sauta Rita Mountains, as you no
doubt know very well, are the most
pleasant and best-timbered range in
this section, and our soil is free from
all uuderbrush. There is a rich
growth of grass everywhere, and
groves of white and black oak and
cudur abound on every hand, furnish
ing wood in plenty tor the winter's
fire, or fuel for machinery requiring
it. No volcanic formations occur,
at.d the formation of the ground i a
black loam and gravel, discolored by
iron and other mineral decomposition,
giving it a deep red or yellow hue. It
is a false idea to think that there is no
watei in this range. "Wherever the
miner or projpecior has taken the
trouble to sink a few feet below the
surface, a fcUpply of water has alway
been found. All the camps about
here have plenty of water some of
thrtn as many as three wells. For
the past four or fiye months prospect
ing nud mining generally has seemed
to take a new impetus, and within
that time some very promising and
well-defined fissure veins of rich
quartz have been struck.
A rich strike the sublime name ot
which calls It first to my mind is the
Jumping Jack. This claim was lo
cated some time ago by J. C Phebe
and John M. .Williams. Tho ve'n,
however, wa3 only struck last week
after a pe'sistent search by these gen
tlemen for a long time past. They
have two feet of quartz which carries
quantities of black sulphurets and
galena, with a little chlorides. 2so
assays have jet been made, but thee
gentlemen have every reason to feel
satisfied, as the rock is certainly away
above the average. I am informed
there is a third lucky owner in this
claim our old friend and host, George
Bayfield, of the Palace Hotel, in your
Another rich lead has been lately
found by Messrs. Hntchiiis ani Gear,
on the Tucson side of tbe mountains
facing Brown's Station, in the Santa
Cruz vailey- This is a large and dis
tinct vein of quartz anu chlorides,
cropping out 1500 ieet between walls
of granite and porphyry, 28 Inches.
Assys average betweeu $300 and $400
per ton, and woik is steadily ptishiug
the bottom of the shaft down. They
have a nine-foot incline on the south
west end of the claim and a three-foot
hole on the center of the claim and a
divide cutting the ledge four fee:
down on the northeast end. AH these
openings show a true figure ledge in
solid granite for four feet either bide.
It is ludeed a valuable properly.
The same gentlemen have found a
gold ledge on the Shamrock Hill,
above the Greaterrille placers. The
nick shows Hue gold, and the ledge is
eight inches wide at two feet in depth.
They call this the Lucky Venture.
The Hoinestake is another promis
ing silver lead. It is 13 inches wide
in the surface and is of the exact na
ture as the rock-from the Jumping
Jack. Mr. Thomas "Whitton, who is
the discoverer, iy he will try 10 de
velop it before long, and it looks from
the strength of the croppiugs to be a
Among the older locations in our
district is the Shamrock, a rich three
foot quartz lead near Greaterville, and
the property of Mr. Sam Katzensteln,
of Charleston, and L. Zeckcndorf. of
New York. This mine has an incline
of 03 feet and is in a good body of pa
tanci and galena.
Mr. Kaiznstein is also working
men on the rich gold ledge bolor.gmg
to him called Plug Ugly-
The Pawnee is another very valu
able property, owned by Tucson par
ties Messn. Belknap and McCleary
and oihers. They hiive a tunnel on
this claim some 190 feet long, aud the
showing is most satisfactory to the
There are many other good and well
defined belts of mineral, including the

it i our earnest hope that some of the
many men of capital rushing to one
or two of the already over-crowded
camps in this lower country will turn
their footsteps out our way, and if they
ate not pleased with the prospect.,
continue their journey on to Tomb
stone or Pataso'ila or Bisbee or Oro
Blanco This 1 on their route by car
riae or printe conveyance of any
kind, and we can certainly show them
rich rock from true Assure veins.
Since I wrote the above Col. Thos.
Price, the well-known and highly
esteemed metallurgist and nssayer of
San Francisco, has been here exam
ining and taking samples from some
of our older and be?t-develnped
mines. Mr. Price think Greaterville
District has belter facilities as to wood
and water and higher grade ores thnn
any In Southern Arizona. We need
development that is all and we look
for a movement here soon.

The Citizen heartily endorses the
Star's sensible suggestion that th
tramps now infesting our streets be
arrested as vagrants and set to work
in the chain-ang. Mere Imprison
ment is to these scamps a great boon;
it means free grub and comparatively
com fortable lodging" these cool nights.
Work is the one horror of their lives,
to which death it-elf would he almost
preferable. The end of their expul
sion from the city is speedy of attain
ment. They arc caily spotted a
child could point them out. Lrt Mar
shal Brokaw and the police arrest
them on charge of vagrancy, if no
other offers, and Judge Meyer will
blight their soul tih ei.tence such
a will place them where they will d
the most good. Then all that remain
is for the otftcers iu charge of the
chain-gang to see that they work or
go hungry. One dose will be sufil-'
dent. They will flee thi town a
from a pestilence, and tbe freemason -
ry of the guild will soon make it known
far and wide 'ha' Tucson is a v.ry
good town to glid silently by. This
will in no wise injure those who may
happen to be, idle through force of
circumstances, but who are willing to
work. The offlcerf. have commenced
well it now only remains for them to
keep the ball rolling.
Apache county, according to tbe
Democrat, is the best watered portion
of Arizona. The heavy snowfall nf
the winter months keeps tbe streams
running all the year round. Those
streams are well stocked with fish,
and on the Black. San Francisco, and
their tributaries, are found jwih of
the finest mountain trout ou the con
tinent. Apache possesses immense
forests of pine, sufficient to auppl) the
whole Territory tor ages to com. It
also contains valuable deposits of salt
and coal fluids extensive enough lo
feed the manufactures ol the world
till time shall be no more.
