Mines Increasing and
Good Showings Made.
Some of the Properties Which Pro
mise to Make the District
i Groom Creek, Sept. 18. 1 have seen
' or read of but little mining items of
! this part of the country. Have you
i newspaper men turned Rip Van
Winkle for a while? If so I will try
anil tell what my observation was as I
went to tbe postotbee yesterday. 1 did
i l ot get as far as
THE IDEAL COMPAXY'S
Mine but was told they had their mill
building up and were expecting their
machinery every day. The Ideal com
pany has one of the largest ledges in
this p .: ' of the district. It is about
six miles south of Prescott aud lays in
the Granite belt. They have large
bodies of sulphide ores that carry
good gold values. Tbey have plenty
of water to run their mill which they
pump from the mine.
At the Chicago miue ererythiug is
looking flue. I did not see any of the
miners or men setting around reading
the society news of Prescott, but tbey
were all on the go. .Mr. ( lark, the
owner, and manager must have two
huudred cords of wood cut. beside
hundreds of feet of stull timbers. He
believes iu having material ahead and
it is a good plan.
good nlau. The meu have a
good boarding bouse ami
will soon commence to build quarters
for the men, beside birldiug himself
a bouse. As soon as he acc jmnauies
! his wife back east he is coming back
to superintend his mine this winter.
He is now down IUK) feet aud has cut a
station aud started to cross cut at that
level. He will have to crosscut some
0je r ten feet to cut the ledge.
Mr. Clark says all he wants is tbat
tbe ore is as good at the .'WO foot level
as at the 200 foot level, and he will
be satisfied. 1 think it will be, if not
better. This company is incorpo
rated but Mr. Clark has sold no
shares. He wants to know if he has a
mine before he will sell. Mr. Editor

In going up tbe creek there is a
large stream of water running down ,
the mouutain from
THE MONTE CHRISTO MINE.
Hiey have been pumpiug for a week 1
and have it almost pumped out. anil

Tbey are repairing the roofs of their!
buildings also which makes a great
improvement to their looks. From '
this mine there has been some very;
rich ore shipped and milled by differ
ent parties. They are lon -4 KJ feet, !
and when the shut down came they
hail not cut the U-dge at the 400 foot
level. So oue of the first things they
will finish is their cross cut to their

across Mr.Snow. He was breaking up
-ome tine looking rock. He told me it
: came from
THE INFANTA MINE,
Owned by Joe Hobbs and Mr. Snow.
.They told me they had two and a half
. feet of ore iu tbe shaft. It looked fine
' but what it carries iu values 1 do not
know. This mine is between the
Monte Christo aud the Empire. Joe
Hol.bs' partner say? Joe is a good
miuer and worker till he hears that a
mountain lion has ruu through the ,
i-ouutry then he takes lay off.
They had steam up and were pump
ing from this mine. Thty milled
BOOM two huudred tons of ore at the
(old Basis mill. There bas been a
company ex pert iug the mine, but did
not understand whether they had
bought the property or not.
The boys that have charge of the
pnqierty for the company, Laidlaw
and Tyudall, are bachelors by cir
cumstances. I went ovee to their
house and the following conversation
took place :

"Scrubbing oul; swell affair tomor

Returning again to the question of

But Ibis is of little moment to the
Iron King. A stroug young gladiator,
it bas entered the mining arena, not
to defy, but to battle upon merit.
Less than two years ago there was on
this property about 2200 feet of devel
opment. Competent authorities re
ported upon examination of said de
velopment $5,000,000 of ore blocked
iut. Today tbe development equals
1500 feet without tne slightest dimin
ishing of the ore body while a very
perceptible increase of values are be
ing obtained as depth progresses. By
actual development tbe ore shoot of
the Iron King is opened up for over
5000 feet. Of several drifts, the
longest is over 1200 feet all of which
is in ore. Of several cross cuts, tbe
longest being 200 feet on tbe 100 foot
level are also in ore without having
encountered either wall. The deepest
shaft. No. 2, is:U5 feet, with a 40 foot
crosscut and a 50 foot drift at tbe 330
foot level all in ore. Tbe immensity
of the Iron King's ore body is no
longer a matter of doubtful discus
