are in very rich ore on one of their
claims near Placeritas. They recently
sold a lot of ore to the Prescott sam

ounce of pure gold picked out of the
ore with ringers and pocket knife.
Good luck to theui.
Mr. Henry Cohrman has just re
turned from one of his shafts which
he had not seen for a week or so. and
reports that he found part of the lum
ber on the ground had been used by
tramps for a wind break, and other
parts used for fire wood, using timber
and boards all squared and ready to
place, in preference to the odds and
ends lying around in profusion, which
if they had used, although not wel

now working very satisfactorily.
O. V. Hull is one ol tne most san
guine mining men we have seen in j
many days. A cable trom Loudon. ;
this week, stated that there was 8100. -
000 ready to use in opening up the old j
Winningham 'property. This block j
of stock was taken by a few wealthy '
men of Paris aud London, w ho are 1
determined to thoroughly explore-,
their property. It will In? recalled I
that a syndicate of Scotchmen sup- 1
plied the late Ralph Dillon with
money to work the property : he spent j
something like 885.000 running a tun
nel 1100 feet. Mr. Hull thinks this
was a mistake aud one from which he
intends to profit by sinking at a point
where ore was first found. South of
the United Verde has been prosjected
less than any other direction, by Sen
ator Clark from the lower workings
of his mine. The dip of the United
Verde ore is said, by miners, to le
south, which being the case. Mr. Hull
has only to go deep enough to strike
it. However, if the miners happened
to be wrong and the dip was iu any
other directiou it would finally enter
some of Mr. Hull's ground fur he has
the United Verde nearly surrounded.
He exjiccts to have twenty men work
ing first of next mouth. - Keuiiei .
