Mines.
The County Lies Directly in the
Haiti Gold Belt that Begins in
Alaska and Ends in
Mexico.
The following article is extracted
from Governor Murphy's annual report
to the Secretary of the Interior and is
an interesting presentation of facts re
garding some of the mineral resources
of Yuma county, and a description of
two of the richest gold mines; also
something of the Castle Dome lead
mines:
KING OF ARIZONA.
The gold-bearing property, known for a time as
the Gleason, has been transferred to the King
of Arizona Mining and Milling Company, a cor
poration organized under the laws of the Terri
tory of Arizona, with a capitalization of 5,000,000
shares of a par value of $1 each. This company
owns four full claims the Homestakc, the King
of Arizona, the Last Hope, and the Mucho
Bueno. This district lies about thirty five
miles due east of thd Cattle Dome Land
ing, on the Colorado River. It is north of
the Gila River and about 40 miles from Mohawk
Summit, on the Southern Facific Railroad.
This is the nearest station on the railway.
There are several other locations besides
those conveyed to the King of Arizona.
The Homestake location covers the chief
workings up to this date. There Is on this
claim a strong vein of gold-bearing quartz. This
lode or vein has three well-marked divisions or
layers. On the hanging wall there is a soft layer
from 1 to zyt Inches -wide, which averages about
52,800 per ton in value. Next below this there
is a middle layer or body of quartz about 20
inches thick, which will average about ?90 to
8100 per ton in value. The remainder of the
vein, so far as it is exposed by the shaft, aver
ages about $24 per ton. Test holes have been
drilled 3 feet deep into the foot wall, and all are
in ore. The shaft by which the exposure of
the nature of the vein has been made is 200
feet deep and follows the dip of the hanging
wall a distance of 40 feet easterly and 30 feet
westerly. These show a continuity of vein,
having the same characters and values develop
ed by the shaft. The hill rises rapidly both east
and west of the shaft so that the height of backs
on the lode above the drifts is greater than at
the shaft- At a point about 30 feet west of the
shaft and on a level with the collar of the shaft
the vein has been crosscut from wall to wall,
showing it 18 feet wide at that point. The ore
in the crosscut is of about the same grade as
that in the shaft. The croppings of the vein
may be followed for some 700 feet of the Home
stake shof t to a second opening, known as "The
King of Arizona Shaft." This shaft is about 50
feet deep, and by means of drill holes the vein '
Is shown to be 11 feet in width and has an aver-
age value of 510 per ton. At a point 300 feet east
of the Homestake shaft a tunnel has been made ,
which crosscuts the vein 160 feet below the sur-.
face. At this point the hanging wall vein is 18
inches wide and has an average value of $50 per
ton. The tunnel then passes through 30 feet of
" ai c running uduui w pci ion. ;
?Ttec

to foot wall along this tunnel is 40 feet. A drift j
has bcen run along the foot wall to the Home
stakc shaft at a distance of 300 feet, and the
average value of the ore exposed is 314 per ton.
LA rORTUKA MINE.
In the early days of gold discovery of Califor
nia, 1848, when the news reached the gold miners
of Sonora, thcre was a general exodus of the
able-bodied men who were able to get away '
northwest to the new El Dorado in California. !
and the state of Sonora contributed many men
to the mining population. They took the old
road, which was known as the "camino real,"
from Estancia and Altar northwestward, nearly
parallel to the gulf, following the mountain
ridge known as the Gila range, jast north of our '
present boundary. The road led to Yuma, and j 1853, from the fancied resemblence to the dome

lower levels of the mine. The workings which edge and traversed by numerous dikes or intru-
have been carried on here hpve developed a
condition of things which could not be foretold
from an inspection of the outcrop. The vein
or lode appears to be a chimney, not a contiuo
ous ore body, nor a continuous vein with an ore
body or chimney or chute upon it. As re
marked the outcropping points indicate that
there is no very great longitudinal extension of
this ore body.
The vein is remarkable first in this limited out
crop; second, in its continuity in depth, its con
tinued satisfactory richness, and the promise it
gives of enrichment by further veins dipping"
into it on the foot-wall sides.
Some facts in regard to the product or yield:
The ore paid from the surface. The product or
ore extracted up to the time has Been about 80 ,
tons'per day, which is sent to the 20-stamp-mill,
each stamp of which crushes about 4 tons in
every twenty-four hours. The extraction is
chiefly and largely by power drills. A force
of 80 men is employed by this mine nud mill.
The greater part of th labor underground and
mining Is done by compressed air. The lode, I
was told, was 6 to 15 feet wide. This large
space permits the use of power drills to great
advantage. In the material hoisted there are
frntrments of the waii rocks, some of which arc I
thrown out, but many piews pass through the J
mill. They would prefer to reject most of this
wall rock, but it would take more thne and ex
pense than it does to mill it, and there is a
chance of some of it containing gold. From
these 80 tons of rock crushed daily the average
product is perhaps 18,000 worth of gold per
month. Some months they have produced as
high as S90.000.
In the region of the Fortuna mine the forma
tions appear to be wholly of mica slate and
hornblende slate, with some arenaceous layers
like old micaceous sandstones and quartzites.
The mine is surrounded by black hornblendic
slates and mica slates, dipping southward and
southwestward at an angle of about 45 degrees,
and these slates are very evenly laminated,
ridge after ridge. This is apparently a con-,
tinuous body stretching to a distance of two or
three miles, and showing a thickness at right
angles to the stratification of no less than 6,000
or 8,000, or perhaps 10,000 feet, and there is no
evidence whatever of plication. The stratifica
tion is flat and as regular as the leaves of a
book. Usually we detect more or less plication
or folding in such a section, but there is no evi
dence of any folding whatever in this series.
There is, however, a great difference in the
composition of the layers of these rocky ridges,
now all turned black upon the surface a condi
tion of coloring which seems to attend all the
rock outcrops along the lower Colorado, and the
origin of which, though discussed by Humboldt
after noting similar blackening of the rocks
along the Orinoco, has not yet been satisfactory
explained. This general blackening of the sur
face hides the changes of composition, which
may be noted by careful and close inspection.
In some places hornblendic slates are more
developed than the mica slate, and at others the
micaceous sohistose characters predominate
and are accompanied by layers of quartzite in
terleaved and three or four feet in tuickness,
sometimes three or four inches, and some
foliated quartz having little films of mica in it.
These quartz beds are members of the series,
but have been located as ledges and, it is
claimed, are gold bearing. The quartz has
little or no resemblence to vein quartz, and yet
at several points in the outcrop there are stains
of green color, apparently from the decomposi
tion of ore like that which has given green
stains to the croppings of the Fortuna.
Several dike-like seams or veins of white al
bite or soda feldspar cut directly across the
bedding of the mica slate series. These f eldspa
thic dikes do not appear to have any relation to
the ore bearing vein or lode of the Fortuna.
These dikes are extremely irregular and appear
to have filled cross fractures or breaks of the
regular strata.
Coarse granite was noted at the northern
point of the Gila range, along the railroad, but
no evidences were found of the existence of 1
stratified Paleozoic or secondary rocks. The
mica slates series referred to Is .the Huronian
or Archaean.
CASTLE DOME DISTBICT.
The veins of the Castle Dome district may be
said to have been rediscovered In 1863, for it was 1
evident that they had been anciently worked, as
already stated In the historical introduction. I
The metal had been taken out from many of the :
veins by the ancient miners down to a depth of '
from 6 to 15 feet and in continuous lines of '
trenches, in some places for 50 to 100 feet or
more. These old workings were found to be '
safe guides to good metal bearing ground a ;
short distance deeper. Well worn trails leading
i off from tlipsft nits to thft hnnlrs of thft Gila
SQme lg miles distanti and the rulns
thcre o; some ruae smelting fUrnaces, indicate
that the orps wcre carried to the Gila probaalv

The elaimswere worked by
the pr0spcclors without capital until October,
187() Up t0 January ,t 189o there had not been
an investment of over $300 in building or per
manent improvements. The climate is such
that men can work the year round without no
more protection than is afforded by brush, huts
or tents.
The veins crop out on a rolling plain or mesa
at the base of the Castle Dome range, a very
nigged and picturesque group of mountains !
trending northwest and southeast, rising near ,
the center to the remarkable dome-shaped sum-1
mit with precipitous sides, looking like a huge '.
Tound castle or building with a dome. It is a j
noted landmark, being visible from a great dis- j
' tance in all directions. It was originally called
"Capitol Dome" by the officers at Fort Yuma in i
sive masses of a chocolate-colored porphyry.
Still Moie Counterfeiting.
The Secret Service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the aver
age person would never suspect them of
being spurious. Things of great value
are always selected- by counterfeiters for
imitation, notably the celebrated Hos
teler's Stomach Bitters, which has
many imitators but no equals for indi
gestion, dyspepsia, constipation, ner
vousnes8 and general- debility.
The
Bitters sets things ncht in the stomach.
and when the stomach is in good order

In this manner the Bitters get at the

The Climate Conditions Favorable to a Great
Variety of flcrketable Produce.
The following report from the direc
tor of the experint station, is published
as giving a fair resume of the conclu
sions which have heen reached in re
gard to agriculture in this territory:
One of the most encouraging signs of the times
in connections with Arizona is the growth of
her agricultural interests. These interests, by
creating a settled population and certain sources
of wealth, insure the Territory, as a whole,
against those excessive fluctuations in popula
tion and finance which are so often observed in
purely mining communities. Although but a
small percentage of the total area of Arizona is
under cultivation, yet when the actual amount
and productiveness of these lands is considered,
the place of agriculture among the Industries
of the Territory is very important. Arizona has
and always will have land in excess of the water
supply available for irrigation, without which
agriculture can. excepting in rare instances,
hardly be considered. Out of about 72,800,000
acres in the Territory only 5,700,000 acres are
privately owned, of which about 450,000 acres
are under irrigation ditch. For the total amount
of land under ditch, thcre is not sufficient water
in all Instances to insure crops; but In time
thcre can be little doubt that the storage and
development of water will lead to the successful
irrigation of much more than the area under
ditch.
The future of agriculture in Arizona is, with
out question, more than usually good, and for
the reason that the conditions of soil, irrigation,
and climate combine to produce an uncommon
variety and amount of marketable produce.
The soil of Arizona, as is usual with the soils of
arid regions, are rich in the elements of fertili
ty, requiring only the ever-needful water, skill,
and industry in their management to secure
abundant returns. The fertility of cultivated
soils In irrigated regions is further assured by
the deposite of silt brought upon the land with
irrigation water. The problems of fertilization,
which become so serious in humid sections, are
therefore of much less importance here and not
to.be so carefully reckoned within connection
with the future of our agriculture.
The most marked advantage in connection
with agriculture and horticulture, especially in
southern Arizona, is the climate. From January
to June the temperature resembles that of
spring and early summer in the latitude of Ken
tucky. From June to September the climate is
of subtropical fervor, while from September to
November there is a second mild season of tem
perate weather. The winter season, from Nov
ember to January, though subject to sharp frosts
in southern Arizona, is not seriously or even
uncomfortably cold.
Owing to this combination of seasons a re
markable variety of crops may be found in the
same locality at different times of the year.
Strawberries, which flourish in Greenland, may
be found on the same land with dates and palms
from Sahara. Alfalfa, the great forage of the
arid West, flourishes alongside with wheat,
corn, and sorghum, respectively characteristic
of Minnesota, Illinois, and Kansas. Oranges,
lemons, and olives from California may be found
in the same neighoorhood with peanuts and
sweet potatoes from Virginia. In brief, many
of the leading crops of both temperate and sub
tropical countries, which are not affected by
a too arid atmosphere or by the frosts of winter,
flourish in southern Arizona. In northern Ari
zona, where the temperatures more resemble
those of northern Illinois, many of the more dis
tinctively temperate-region crops flourish, Jsuch
as potatoes, apples, and various small fruits.
When, with this diversity of products is
coupled a healthful, and for the most of the year
agreeable, climate, it will be seen that agricul
tural in Arizona possesses distinct advantages.

There was a young fellow from
Arizona, Bugby by name, who
was shot straight across the top"
of the head. I happened to over
take him, and saw the ivay the
blood was streaming down his
face that he wasjtn-no condition"
to stay in the front. Riding up
by his side I tapped him on the?
arm and said, 'you go to" ffrer
rear.'
"Well, I'll never forget the
face that fellow turned toward
me. It was one mass of blood,
and this added horrible fierceness
to the look he gave me.
" 'You go to hell, 'he said as-
he struck out on a run up the
hill.
"I couldn't forget such a fellow
and got him a commission in the
regular army. He is now in the
Philippines . "
