Man on a Visit to
Most Favorable Impression Formed From a
Personal Examination of the Most Promis
ing PropertiesSome Interest5
Leaving Prescott and -etting out to
go over the mining districts that 1
made an extensive examination of in
the year 18W when there vas compar
atively little done in the way of min
ing to what there is now. I first find
myself in Groom Creek, on the Kelly
& Stephens property and C. A.
Behm anil Major Watt.-' property,
at the head ot Groom Creek and on
the summit. The Kelly Jc Stephens
holdings are all patented lieiug ex
tensively developed and showing well
defined veins and large bodies of fair
grade ore. All of the property is cov
ered with a heavy growth of timber.
There has been very little work done
on this property since my former
visit, but now I am informed that a
party has taken hold of the property
owned by T. J. Laird aud Kobt.
Brown on the south adjoining this
property and the Kelly property con
sisting of seveuteen claims and are
preparing to do extensive work on
them. The C. A. Behm aud Major
Watts' holding- adjoin this property
on the south east, consisting of eleven
claims all fairly well developed. One
of the claims has a shaft over 100 feet
in depth aud one claim has a tunnel
run in on the vein loo feet. The lat
ter is still being driven ahead. The
vein has been broken up in places but
in the face now it shows more of a
permanent character. Fifty feet more
will bring the tunnel in ground that
has never been disturlied. With this
tunnel in on the vein MO feet it will
attain a vertical depth of over 1000
feet. These holdings of Kelly A
Stephens aud Behm aud Watts are
among the best mines in all Groom
Wood and water are in abundance
and a good grade of ore in large quan
tities from the grass roots. There is
no necessity to siuk a shaft on any of
these veins without being in ore.
Near this property, and adjoiuiug
some of the claims on the north, is
the Dutchman as some call it. This
property is lying idle. It is equip
ped with a good hoist and
over "JO0 feet of development
not at work.
A few hundred feet north is the
Midnight Test. Tin. property is well
equipped with steam hoist uud board

stand, will lie working uow sooii
The Miles company has a shaft to a
depth of nearly four hundred feet aud
is now merely keeping the water out
and preparing to cross cut or drift for
the ledge. This property is well
equipped for future work.
At the Monte Christo mine nothing
is being done. This property has
la-en closed down for some length of
The Alma is doing development
work with a very promising outlook.
The Empire mine is resting but ex
pects to lie in full blast soon.
The Gold Basis, under the able
management of Mr. Brooks, has a
good healthy look, showing a practi
cal management. Groom Creek mines
wauts more practical mining and less
book knowledge of .nines aud more of
them will get into the dividend chis-.
Mr. Pickerell, once the manager of
the Midnight Test, two and a half
miles south, 1 did not visit but as 1
uudt stand is running bis mill and
mines in full force, with the most
satisfactory results. C.
Taking the trail to Lynx creek from
Groom Creek at the foot of (he trail I
found the Victor mine. None of the
officials being there I did not learn
much of the property ouly I hey were
running their mine aud mill in full
force with apjiareutly good results.
At the Mud Hole, across the gulch,
they are taking the water out of the
mine and preparing to work in toll
Above the Mud Hole the Polaud
tunnel is being run in from the Lynx
Creek side to the Big Bug .-iile. push
ing it as fast as possible tind working
some of the cross veins.
Directly across the creek is the
Monroe Consolidated Mining com
pany's property. They are working
a few men preparatory to the erection
of a plant hoist and reduction
works. 1). C. Monroe, geueral man
ager, is east at this time arranging for
the plant and shipping it. It will be
gill to arrive soon.
On the old wagon road over to
wards Big Bug 1 found Mr. Edwards
taking the water out of two shafts
preparing to sink each l'" feet with a
view of running drifts atsd Opening up
the property aud he is now .-inking
the third shaft. This property U sup
posed to be the extension of the Mini
Hole mine. Arizona wants a few
more men of Mr. Edwards -tamp.
Over the divide, three miles, is the
Polaud. Mete I met my old friend
V. J. Martin, superintendent. Every
thing was running in full blast the
twenty stamp mill was crushing 110
tons of ore per day. Tiring a twenty
mesh screen, ainalginat ing and con
centrating. The tunnel ic hi over
2000 feet from the Big Bug side.
Mr. George and some of the stock
holders were very jubilant over the
showing of the Poland extension. Mr.
Ivamlall. one ol tin- stockholders in
the Poland extension whom I had
met in Prescott. has accepted the po
sition as chief engineer for the Poland
Extension company. .Mr. Kandall
thinks of building a residence in
Prescott and bringing his family out
here fo make his home.
Leaving Poland, time miles below I
found t be .Merchant- M iuing ( 'o's prop

width from the surface to bottom of
shaft of three feet with ore of an aver
age value of $10 per ton. There are
about .TOO tons of ore on the dump,
that the assay value of is $40 and there
is probably 1000 tons the value of
which is not less than $10 per ton.
All of the work is done in a first class
manner. The shaft is the best timber
ed shaft in the territory. In a few
days they will have their hoist in op
eration. Their boarding house is just
completed. Work will be pushed to
the fullest extent. This property is
one of the bonanzas and everything
connected with it has a good healthy
look, and means business.
The Oriental Mining Co. is east of
the Merchants company and supposed
to be on the same vein. This com
pany has two Huntington mills treat
ing 40 tons of ore per day. The mine
is well equipped with hoist, etc. I
could not ascertain the value of the
ore, though it is probably as good
a- tnat of the Merchants Mining com
pany being in the same ledge.
Further east of the Oriental two shafts
are being sunk and a tunnel is being
run .The shafts have attained a depth
of 900 feet. The tunnel is being run
in on the vein. They have a steam
hoist on one shaft and a whim on the
other. Morris Packer is superintend
ing the work. I could not learn the
value of the ores, but I should judge
from the looks that is was good. I
think, without doubt, that these
three properties last mentioned, are
on one and the same ledge and they
have the best outlook for making
large dividend paying properties of
any 1 have seen in the territory. The
vein has a good healthy look, none of
the hungry look that is seen in many
of the ledges in the territory. These
properties are my kind of a mine.
They pay from the grass roots. This
thing of sinking a shaft 400 or 500 feet
and then looking for the mine I do
not think is very good mining. C.
Leaving the Oriental, Merchants and
other properties in that immediate vi
cinity, three miles below brings me
to Providence. Here is the Red Rock
mine. This property has a shaft sunk
to a depth of 300 feet from the sur
face. drift has been run on the
vein 400 feet, showing a vein of ore of
an average width of two and a half
feet of a good grade. There is a mill
on the property that will treat twenty
tons of ore per day, but it has been
shut down for some time. It will
-tart up in a short time. This infor
mation I got from a man who has
worked in the mine from the starting
up to the closing down. He looks
upon it as a valuable property. The
Great Belcher has attained a depth of
700 feet but now nothing is doing on
it. This is also looked upon as a val
uable property. The Little Annie
ha- a shaft 385 feet deep showing a
good vein of ore from the surface to
the bottom of the shaft with about COO
feet of drifting at the 300 foot level.
All the ores carry a good value. Be
low the little Annie 200 feet the Or
iental company is now running a tun
nel in on the vein for the purpose of
draining the Lottie mine a distance of
5000 feet. The tunnel is in now 3000
feet and they are driving it ahead
with two shifts. There is nothing
more doing on the Lottie outside of
the tunnel. All of the properties
around Providence which are lying
idle will be in full operation soon.
The Braganza company three miles
below Providence was running in full
force. Mill and mine there is O. K.
Shipment of gold bricks of from
thirty to forty pound tells more than
I can as to the value of this property.
iver the ridge three miles I come to
Chaparral and McCabe. At Chapar
ral operating is very quiet. The Mc
Cain' is running. The McCabe Exten
sion aud all of the other properties
are idle aud all expecting to start up
soon. The little Jessie expected to
-tart up by April. Also the Dividend
people say they will soon make a
-tart. The Dividend and little J.ssie
mine 1 have known from their first
openings aud am familiar with their
working ever since. They are both
good properties. All they want is
good management to be dividend pay
ing properties. Next I came to Mr.
Murray's ranch. He is the most hope
ful and prosperous man that I have
met. He has a Hue ranch well equip
ped with stock and mines aud six tine
boys at home aud as many away
working. He has some very Hatteriug
prospects in the hills close by. After
tilling up with a goodly quautity of
buttermilk 1 wended my way two aud
a half miles to the White Horse Min
ing company's mine. This company
i - working four men, the superintend
ent lieing Mr. Legge. They are sink
ing a shaft on the Lone Pine now to a
depth of lui feet with a good looking
vein from the surface. Some of the
ore is of high grade, over $100. C.
NEW DENTAL INSTRUMENT.
Dr. Islam Installs Electric Dental En
gine. Dr. J. Harvey Blain. one of Pres
cott's popular dentists, has just added
an instrument to his well equipped
ottos which puts him in the front
rank of up to date dentists. This in
strument n what is called an electric
dental engine and is that little instru
ment so well known by all who have
had the pleasure of having teeth
cleaned and tilled, aud makes the poor
victim feel like they had a drove of
bOI saws operating in the vicinity of
the roof of their mouth. This new
in-trument is not guaranteed to drill
out teeth without buzzing but it
makes it possible for the dentist to
do the work in almut one quarter of
the time it took with the old foot en
gine, which is a great advantage over
the old method. The new engine is
propelled by an electric motor with
an alternating current which makes
possible to run the drill either back
ward or forward by simply pressing
his foot against a lever to a controller
which sets on the floor.
The drill is suseuded from above
and 60 arranged that it can lie lower-
ed or raised at the will of the opera
This is one of the most recent den
tal instruments to be put on the mar
ket, and is probably the only one in
Arizona at this date, which is an evi
dence that Mr. Plain proposes to keep
in the front row of bis profession.
The installation of this engine in
volves the expenditure of nearly WO
but Mr. Plain says the satisfaction it
gives loth to the patient and the den

Word was received in Prescott last
night from Mrs. D. K. St. Clair, who
left here Sunday morning in response
to a telegram that her father was not
expected to live, that she had received
a wire at some station iu New Mexico
conveying the sad intelligence that
her father. Robert Hunter, had died
Monday morning. As she could not
reach home before Wednesday evening
the funeral of her father will likely
take place at the old home in Rock
Port, Mo., today, Thursday. The news
will be received iu Prescott by Mrs.
St. Clair's many friends with feelings
of deep sadness, as the double be
reavement in the loss of her husband
and father iu less than a week, w ill
be a terrible blow to the little lady.
It is expected that Mrs. St. Clair will
bring her mother to Prescott to make
her future home as soon as she is able
to travel, she too having been quite
sick with the grippe.
Mr. Hunter was at one time one of
the most influential and wealthiest
business men in northern Missouri,
but being of a generous and open
hearted nature he was imposed upon
by false friends aud lost a large sum
of money on account of lieing on
notes and bonds of other man. Other
reverses in fortune came to him in
his declining years which so discour
aged him that his health failed him
and for several years he has lieen al
most an invalid, until death has at
last brought him rest and freed him
from the cares of earth. He visited
his daughter. Mrs. St. Clair, in Pres
cott. two years ago and while here be

ositions in the Tonto Basin country,
and it was the intention to begin act

season. Geo. Kell. the well known
mining man was interested with him.

they are simply immense. Keep a
lookout for their first apiearance and
don't miss it.

Laborers on the P and E. Rail
road Get Into Trouble With
They Make 8 Display of Firearms and
Start Out to Cause a Reign
About 9 o'clock last night the sher
iff's office received a telephone from
the railroad camp at Turkey creek,
-tating that the Austrians, who had
been brought out from Chicago a few
weeks ago, to work on the railroad be
ing built to Crown King, bad gone on
a tear and no one there was able to do
anything with them. It seems that
some trouble had come up between
the foreman and a gang of about 40 of
the Austrians when they all quit work
and began muttering threats against
the whole railroad outfit. They rush
ed to the office of the time keeper and
with drawn revolvers demanded their
time aud all sorts of things, after
which they started out to walk to
Prescott in a body. They began try
ing to induce others of their country
men to join them and Anally succeed
ed in increasing their numbers to
about sixty. After a riot of an hour
or two they got settled down a little
to wait till this morning before begin
ning their march to Prescott.
Deputy Sheriffs Campbell and
Noble were sent to the scene of the
disturbance on the early train today
to see if they could not quiet the
trouble or disarm those who were
armed so no serious difficulty might
result from the outbreak.
When Deputies Noble and Campbell
had passed Mayer a little way they
came across the Austrians making
their way toward town, and they put
the whole lot under arrest and march
ed them into Mayer where they cor
ralled them and telephoned to the
sheriff's office for instructions. Un
der Sehriff Piatt instructed them to
line the gang up and go through them
one at a time and those who were not
armed to turn them loose and those
who were armed to bring in and lock
them up. They will probably bring
quite a bunch in on the late train this
evening. No further trouble is look
ed for after the armed leaders are
It is likely that the trouble with
the Austrians which was spoken of in
these columus last evening is not at
an end as yet. Deputies Xoble and
Campbell had instructions yesterday
to search the whole bunch of men who
were marching to Prescott and to
bring those who were found armed
to Prescott and turn the balance
loose, but Mr. Xoble informed the
Journal-Miner that to have done so
yesterday would have been to raise a
riot and it might have been necessary
to have killed some of them or got
killed, as the men were in a bad hu
mor aud were tired and hungry, and
very few of them understood a word
of English and would have been a
terrible lot of men to antagonize. So
they waited till Mr. Eaman, the time
keeper, arrived and he identified the
man who had pulled the gun on him
and he was brought to town while the
balance of the lot were turned loose.
The man they brought with them is
the ring leader of the lot and it is
likely that the others may be induced
to go back to work. The prisoner s
name is Joe Xovkovic, a great big
Austrian, who stands six feet three
ami a physical giant among men. He
talks a few words of English, and has
lieen the foreman of the gang on the
railroad work in the east and this
seems to be the cause of the present
trouble to a great extent. He says be
was promised the job of foreman be
fore they came here and because they
would not make him foreman he
and induced the other men to
Mr. Eaman. the time keeper,
seen today and said the reason
Joe bad not been made foreman
liecause he knew nothing of rock work
aud nearly all their work now is in
rock aud it was impossible for him to
do the work. Another cause they
claimed for quitting was that the con
tractors charged them too high for
their provisions. Regarding this
charge Mr. Eaman says the contract
ors only charged them exactly the
same that they would pay in Prescott.
Mr. Eamau says the reason the gun
play was made was that he met the
men as they were coming to his office
for their time and reminded them that
they were still in debt to the company
for their transportation from Chicago
besides blankets and provisions since
their arrival, and he insisted that
they pay the company what they owed
it before quitting. At this big Joe
pulled his gun and commanded him
to stand aside, which he very politely
did. He says be thinks the most of
them are armed as they are in the
habit of target practicing with their
six shooters every Sunday.
They are expected to arrive in Pres
cott this evening and when they get
into town they will be searched and
if they still have their guns on them
they will be dealt with according to
Miss Atwood. .who is here represent
ing one of the largest labor bureaus in
the country, and who was instrumen
tal in bringing these men to this
place, has been using her utmost abil
ity to get the men to return to work,
and when they get there and she has
an opportunity of talking to tbem she
may lie able to accomplish her pur
poses, now that their leader has been
put out of the way.
REFUSE TO RETURN.
The Austrian Strikers Will Not Come
As was expected, the party of Aus
trians numlieriug about till arrived in
Prescott yesterday eveuiug about 4:00
o'clock aud they were a pretty badly
tired out crowd, and in anything but
a good humor, being very tired and
hungry. As soon as they arrived they
took up headquarters at the Depot sa
loon and sent a delegatiou up town to
purchase provisions for the party as
there are only two or three who can
talk any English, most of them lieing
recent arrivals from Austria.
As soou as they arrived a Journal
Miner man went to the party to see if
possible what the trouble was about
and if there was any chance of the
difficulty being patched up and the
men going liack to work. It did not
take long to determine that point, for
they as one man determined never to
go back to that camp to work. One
of them who could talk a few words
said he would have his head cut off
before he would go liack. and that the
other boys all felt the same way.
Miss Atwood. the lady who bad
brought a part of them to Arizona,
and who is interested iu the employ
ment bureau which had furnished
them to the contractors, was sent for
and she did everything in her power
to get the trouble settled and the men
to go back to work but she war- unable
to move tbem.
ST. PATRICK'S BALL

Odd Fellows hall was the scene of
much gaiety and merriment last even

ways looked forward to by party goers
with much pleasurable anticipation
and are always looked back upon with
only pleasant memories, as the St.
Patrick people never fail to have a
good time, and to give all who attend
their balls the same. The decora
tions for last night's balll were very
beautiful and artistic, as well as ap
propriate. There were about one
hundred couples in attendance and
to the excellent music furnished,
dancing was indulged until the early
hours of morning.

A TOPOGRAPHIC MAP
the Bradshaw Mountains Made
by Geological Survey.
As rapidly as funds permit topo
graphic surveys are being made by the
United States Geological Survey of
all important mining regions in the
western states, and also of those re
gions where the irrigation problem is
the most important one. For several
years past particular attention has
been paid to surveys in Arizona. The
latest map ol a part of : Mat region is
the Bradshaw Mountain atlas sheet.
It covers an area of about 1000 square
miles, lying between Prescott and
Phenix, and includes a large part of
the Prescott forest reserve. It is on a
scale of about two miles to one inch.
Elevations above sea level are given
in figure.- to the nearest foot for all
important mountain peaks; also for
numerous bench marks. Elevations
of other points are showu by contour
lines, representing vertical invervals
of 100 feet. All important mines, all
roads and towus as well as each de
tached house, are accurately located.
These maps are sold at the nomiual
price of five cents each.
The development of this region has
been retarded by the high cost of
transportation and the scarcity of
water. A railroad line now under
construction from Mayer to Crown
King, with numerous spurs, will re
duce the transportation cost, and a
scheme under consideration will, when
successfully carried out. furnish elec
tric power to many of the mines and
so avoid the need for more water than
can be supplied. Besides the gold,
which is the principal mineral of the
region, there is an extensive deposit
of onyx of fine quality. Another im
portant product of the region is the
timber, of which there is still a good

PASSES WORTHLESS CHECKS.
Frank Mansfield was a passenger on
the north bound train yesterday for
Los Angeles, but the chances are that
his stay will notbe as long as he bad
anticipated, for a telegram was sent
to Kingman late yesterday to arrest
him on a charge of having given
checks on a liank iu Prescott with
out the necessary money on deposit to
pay the same. The check was given to
the Palace saloon, on whose com
plaint the telegram wa. .-cut io have
him arrested. This is not the first
time this thing has bapieuod to Mr.
Mansfield, he having been arrested
some weeks ago on a similar charge,
but the case was pa.-sed over to give
him a chance to make the matter all
right, and being a young fellow the
papers of the city did not say any
thing about the matter at the time.
He will probably be brought back to
Prescott touigbt for trial.
