Tho supremo court of Oregon held,
in the case of Roberts vs. Tcmpk'ton,
that where the plaintiir, up to tho time
of his oral purchase of the interest of
a tenant in common of a mine, was in
possession under a contract with a co-tenant
of the vendor, so that his prior
possession merged, into that under his
purchase, there was not such a change
of possession under the contract as to
take it out of the statute of frauds.

From tlio Tombstone Prospector.
The pump men and machinists are
busy at the big shaft of the Tombstone
Con. .Mines Co. installing the new
pump on the S0O level. This is being
done under ditliculties, since this level
is the wet range and water is prevalent
on all occasions. By the combined
operations of the pumps .the water is
kept lowered and but little delay ex
perienced in tho work concentrated at
this Miint. It is thought within a month
the S00 level pump will be in full operation.
The testing work for the proposed
cyanide treatment continues and
upon the final results will depend the
method of handling the large low
grade ore reserves of the county. It is
probable the present mill capacity will
be increased to 150 tons daily should
the mill operations be decided upon.

The property of El Capitan Mining &

From the Ilisbce Miner.
By September 1, at the latest, work
will start on the Cochise group in this
city. L. C. Shattuck, who is now in
the east, is buying a plant with which
a shaft will be sunk. The developments
in the Czar of tho Copper Queen are
very encouraging to the Cochise people.
The opening of a now body of ore and
the proposed deepening of the shaft at
the Czar are taken by the Cochise people
as very good indications that their
ground covers a great ore body. The
working of the Cochise wjll be a good
thing for Bisbec. It is within the city
limits, and should it prove to be what it
promises to be, it will be operated on a
large scale. The majority of stockholders
arc residents of this city.
From the I'rcM'ott Journal Miner
As guests of Frank M. Murphy, E. B.
Gage, of the Tombstone Consolidated
Mining company, and W. F. Staunton,
of the Congress mine, arc visitors in
Prcscott. At the Tombstone mine another
oil tank is being erected that will
have a capacity of 110,000 gallons. The
object of building this tank is to guard
against washouts and delays, which
very frequently, and leave the company
short of oil for the furnaces.
Growing Importance of the Mining Industry.
From the I'rescott
The fact that the Black Hills Copper
company commenced the work of sinking
a 1000 foot shaft on its property,
would indicate that an era of deep
mining has been started in the Jerome
district. This shaft is being sunk on
what is locally known as Mineral Hill,
in what is supposed to be the heart of
the Jerome mineral belt. Near to the
Black Hill group are the Decatur, the
United Verde Junior and a number of
others on all of which ore has been exposed.
Like the Bisbee district, the
Jerome has gone through years of
shallow development work upon which
hundreds of thousands of dollars have
been spent without any satisfactory results
and for this reason is has been almost
impossible, during the past two
or three years, to get capital with
which to continue work in the district.
Money, however, lias again commenced
to come in, but with the understanding
by those who are diverting it that it
shall be used in deep mining. With that
understanding tho Black Hills, located
south of the United Verde mine, the
Pittsburg-Jerome, southwest, and the
Jerome Mines Development company
with property north of that great mine,
have been successful in raising abundance
of capital with which to develop
their properties. If any one of these
companies succeeds in opening a pay
nine the future of the district and the
city of Jerome is assured.
From tho I'rusucitl Courier.
The Monica mine, in the Kirkland
section, has been operated in a small
way by Tom Earnhardt, its owner, for
Mime time, and for the past year a bar
of gold from this property has been
shipped into I'rescott every ten days.
The Monica is known to be one of the
best gold properties in this section, and
if equipped on a large scale would be
a big ptxjdueor. That it will have such
eiiuipmeut and become such a producer
is assured, for a deed is now in escrow
for the transfer of the pioporty to
Cecil G. Kennell, a well known and
mining operator. Tho price to
be paid for the property is $100,000.
The financial troubles of the Cash
Mines company, originating it is alleged,
from a desire of one faction of
the stockholders to gain control, culminated
yesterday in an attachment being
levied en the property. Learning that
certain creditors were about to precipitate
litigation, that would end in the
company going into bankruptcy. Supt.
II. Blauvelt, to protect the merchants',
secured an assignment of their claims
to him, who in turn assigned them to
the Bashford-Burmister company, the
plaintilfs in the action.

has taken an option on the Allen group
of claims and will begin work on the

the Squaw Peak district about five
miles from Camp Verde.
At the request of interested parties
C. G. Fennel, receiver, postponed the
sale of the Model Gold Mining company's
property at McCabe until August
21. The property was to have been
sold today to the highest bidder. E. E.
Ellinwood, representing a party of
Chicago capitalists, and others asked
today that the date of the opening of
bids be postponed, giving as their reason
that more time was required in
which to prepare their bids.

Big Copper Camps
From the Clifton Herald
Crystalization is becoming more
marked in the ore leads of the Chase
Creek Copper company's mine. There
are bubbles ami blisters and chains and
threadsof beautiful crystalization everywhere.
It is a happy sign. No ore can
exist in wealth and quantity without
extensive crystalization. Room for another
ore dump has been prepared at
the west side of the great tunnel. Thus
far there are only two grades of ore at
the mine first and second. This comprises
its entire product today.

A rush of miners and prospectors is

Mr. brooks, assistant treasurer of
tho Standard Copper mines, was in
town from the camp this week and
stated that all the workings of the
niino have been connected with the
main working shaft, which will greatly
cheapen the handling of the product
from the mine. He states that the
company recently made its last payment
on the San Jose group of mines
and also on the Copper Center group.
All of the property of the company is
now clear of indebtedness. All of the
mines have been patented but three
and they soon will be. The mines are
all doing well. The first shipment will
be made from the Copper Center claims
in a few days and it is expected that
the ore will average about iiO per cent.
Another shipment is also ready from

George Ayers brought in a bar of bullion
weighing $23,000 from the Gold
Road mill at Kingman. Ten days ago

Recent Reports Indicate Coming Prosperity

From tho Tucson Cltlcii,
Afte expending $200,000 in tho development
of the property and erection
of adequate machinery , the Cash Mines
company must now become involved in
litigation similar to that which is tying

aware that uiilet.3 they paid the debts I
of the company it would be attached,"
said Superintendent Blauvelt this after- j
