Pkkkcott, August 10. Prescott, which
next to Tucson is tho oldest town of any
considerable importance in tho Terri
tory, has tho most picturesque location
of anv. Situated on a high tablo land
with the mountains towering ulioro it
in tho back ground all covered with
pine, it presents an appearance that
seems to invite one to sit down and rest.
Being at an altitude of nearly (51)00 feet
it hasa most delightful summer climate.
The days are never excessively hot,
whilo tho cool mountain breezes at
niuht render a blanket necessary for
covering whilo sleeping.
Just now the mining industries in the
country tributary to I'rescott are in a
more flourishing condition than ever
before in her history. In the early
days of mining in Arizona Prescott was
a uocul camn but the ores were all
tcimed low grade, and through this tho
entire mining interests of the Territory
received a serious setback. It was not
that tho ores were low tirade, especially
as ores are generally reckoned now-a-
(lays, Din lor uick oi iriiusporiauun mm
ini'llhiL' facilities that the mines
did not nay. Tho building of
tho Atlantic and Pacific Kailroad opened
up many good mines and later tho
building of tho Prescott and Arizona
Central gave Iho entire country another
Within the last year sampling works
were established in I'rescott and these
have been worth thousands of dollars to
the town. Men of limited means hold
ing claims could bring ores to tho works
for sampling, and upon the showing
made had no trouble in disposing of
tho ores of their locations. The result
has been to bring alwut a genuine Iain-
ills' boom and probably never uelore in
the history of avapai county were tlicro
so inauv men in mo mountains as at
Besides all the prosperity noted in tho
smaller mines, the old and largo prop
erties of tho district are being worked
upon a larger scale than ever before
The mines in Copper Uasin and the Sen
ator ami ltoggs mines, nil owned by that
great mining linn, Phelps, Dodge i Co.,
are running a heavier forco of men than
ever leforo and they are turning out
large quantities of ore. liesides these
tho bilvcr King, near town, is
doiiiL' l'ik)(1 work. Tho Yarnell property
down in Weaver's mountains is being
worked on a larger scale than ever be
fore. The Peck mines in the upiier
part of the Hradshaw district, which
were once abandoned, have been re
opened and are turning out good ore
tho Tiger is again to be put on its feet,
and then there is tho Ora Bella, the
Hillside, the Crown King, (iray hugle
and other mines all being opened up
as rapid v as possible, the United
Verde, northeast of Prescott, is doing
such a big business that its owners are
seriously considering the advisability of
building a branch railroad to connect
witho P. & C. A. The Congress mine
m Date Creek district is generally con
uidered ns being as much tributary to
Pha-nix as to Prescott, and has been
so often discribed in Tiik Reiu'i-mcan
that further mention of it is unnecessary.
In all there are over twenty good mines
now in operation m the I'rescott dis
trict and fjesides the copper oro in tho
Copper basin and at tho United Verde
which is smelted at home, there are
two cars a dav shipped from I'rescott to
smelters in Coloiado and New Mexico.
"Our people are very much interested in
the building of the North and South
Railroad to connect us with Pha-nix and
tho Salt River Valley," said a prominent
mining man to me. "While it will be
of great benefit to us I believe it would
bo oven more valuable to the peoplo of
tho South. We have now the largest and
richest mining country in the Southwest
and the building of that railroad would
oiien up many moro good claims. We
raise almost nothing about Prescott. nnd
with connection with tho Salt Hiver
country your farmers can supply us with
hay, grain, fruits, early vegetables, line
fat beef off your alfalfa lands, and in
short alKjut everything wo can consume,
With sampling works and smelters at
I'lKcnix much ol the oro Irom the south
side of tho mountains would naturally
go there, and all your lumber you can
draw trom tho north part oi the Terri
tory much cheaper than it is now pur
chased. I believe tho majority of tho
people in both sections of tho Territory
aro anxious to have tho road built and
are willing to stand the additional taxes
it will impose upon them to meet the
I found this interview quite universal'
ly expressed tho sentiments of tho peo
ple of Prescott. At tho time when it
was thought tho President would sign
tho bill passed by Congress, arrange

abeyance now. Let us hope that thov
may have occasion to bo resumed and
that cro many months tho whistle of the

TIIK IIHNOKll FAMILY AflAIN.
Why Detective Do Not mill 1I1 Not
To Phi: Rei-uhlican : "What became
of the Bender family?" is a question
that for many years has puzzled the
otlicers of justice and furnished the plot
for many a border story. But at last
from tho hills of rock-ribbed Arizona
conies an echo of their fate and the old
saying, "murder will out," is again vin
dicated. It was the writer's fortune,
whilo journeying in the mountains
sonic time since, to fall in with an old
prospector who had spent a iwrtion
of his life "in the early days
of Kansas." He told the following
story: "One day while traveling down
the 'Valley of tho Uila I stopped for
tho night at a little cabin, whose only
occupant was an old man whitened with
ago and bent by the ceaseless inarch of
time. He was from Kansas and the
conversation turned uioii tho past."
"Did you ever learn tho fate of the
Benders?" said he. "No," said I, en
quiringly. "Well listen and I will tell
you. Old Bender, you know, kept tho
half way houto between Colfeyville and
Fort Scott, Kansas."
In tho spring of 1877, Dr. York, a man
of no little prominence in Cofloyvillo,
and tho last victim of the Benders started
from his country residence to Fort Scott
after a load of nursery stock. Not re
turning within a reasonable time, his
wife liecamu alarmed, and on sending to
town found ho had not been hoard from.
She then informed his brother, Colonel
York, who immediately went in search
of him. Arriving in Fort Scott he learned
t hat the doctor had got his trees and start
ed home. He then tracked him ton little
knoll or hillock near the half-way house,
where all trace of him was lost. The
reputation of tho Benders was well
known and tho Colonel discreetly re
turned home, but his mind was made
iij). Two days after, as tho shades of
night were drawing, Colonel York, in
company with two young men in his
employ ,"and ono of whom is now my
son-in-law, wended their way to the
Bender house. It is useless to enter into
details. A brother's revenge and the
justice duo an outraged community did
its work. After the father and mother
had been sent to their reward
Kato Bender confessed a portion of
their crimes and led the officers of
Judgo Lynch to the last resting place of
thirteen victims. After this horrible
confession, she, too, was ushered into
tho presence of the Supreme Judgo of
the world to plead in behalf of herself
and her parents. Their remains wero
placed in tho Bender wagon and drawn
by tho Bender horses to Humlioldt
river. After they were quietly laid to
rest in its gentle Iwsom, tho horses wero
tied dear tho station in order to leave
tho impression that they had made
their escape during tho night."
That is his story said the prospector,
and I can corroborate it as I am
acquainted with all tho parties men
tioned and havo frequently eaten in old
Bender's house, and I might also add,
said he, that Kato Bender's only regret
was that she had buried alive two littlo
children after having murdered their
father for his money. Scorn.

applauds tho scheme for a trans-Saharaii
railway and thinks tho road will not
cost moro than 200,000,000 francs and
can be built in ten years.
