ble producers in the near future. The
, Nevada group is the property of
1 Messrs. Kelly )t Stephens of this city,
i and by them it was transferred to
Messrs. Dpran & Wann,who are prac
tical and well known mining men of
this section. This group is one of the
old time locations, and consists of five
patented claims, laying on the same
ledge as the Midnight Test and run- i
ning parallel to the Home Run. In

is ine iaci mat wnere me im-atest
i activity prevails in raining, the most
promiueTit mines are located hut a
stone's throw from Prescott. Groom,
Lynx, Copper and Big Biur creeks are
apt illustrations of the indisputable
fact, and nine tenths of the claims
that show up the best are locations
that were abandoned from ten ko
thirty years ago. In the new era that
: seizes mming in this section, there
, has uot been a failure. On the con
trary development work in depth has
demonstrated that where the primary
was cut and the mother formation en
countered, success has followed in
: nearly every case. Mining in short
i around Prescott is assuming an ani
! mated existence, and while the Nevada

I in earnest, a half dozen more big
transfers are ready to be closed in a
: day or two. Our mineral resources
are on top. and no better regard is
shown this industry than the promi

money to invest and the practical
knowledge to know what they are do
ing. A. R. Flischmann. who is working
the Blue Dick mine has lmen doing so
in a very quiet and unostentatious
manner, and while he may not lie im
plicitly obeying the scripture com
mand not to lei his left hand know
what his right hand is doing, he cer
i tainly has not been making any great
noise about his operations, but has
kept "digging" all the time. The
Blue Dick has always borne a
j good reputation as a producer of min
. end and it is one of the Yavapai prop
erties of which no adverse criticism is
' heard from the professional knocker
: and his near relative, the unfortunate
i pessimist. While it has never been
worked on regular mining principles,
I its former owners when in need of
funds, always turned their attention
. to this mine and it never failed to re-
spond to their demands wheu backed
I up by work. Mr. Fleishmann has re
, ceiitlv struck quite a large body of
very rich ore. assorted samples of it!
giving a value of between S3U0 and
$KK) per ton. After various experi
I ments in treatingihe ore it has been '
: decided that it can lie most success
fully treattd by the smelting process.
;mil work is now in progress for its
. construction, and it is expected to
have it in operation within the next
i sixtv days.
A. R. Flajshmann. who recently
purchased the New Year group of '
mines in the McCabe district from H.
K. Behm has already ordered a hoist
; for the property, and as soon as it is
in place will commence active opera-1
tions in the development of the prop
erty. The proper y already has sev
OEM hundred feet" of development
j work done on it. aud nearly all of the !
j openings are in good ore, giving j
promise of adding another bullion
j producer to the already quite respec- i
; table list in that district. One thing!
is certain, that if persistent, intelli-i
Beanjr ilirected work will accomplish
this result, Mr. Fleischman will
make such of it.

examination of the mines, mill, etc..
a courtesy extendetl to all who may

Superintendent omljachcr said.
"We have a great mine here for the
, development done, and as we now
have ore at a depth of nearly 200 feet
on all of which there is more or less
ore exposed. On the eclipse the most
developmeut work has lieen done,
and it has been estimated that from
this claim alone S2i,000 worth of gold
nas peen taken, most ot which was
worked from the ores in the most
crude manner. In the Eclipse the
; deepest workiugs in the group occur
lietng an incline shaft the bottom
of w hich is between 190 and 200 feet
from the surface. At the bottom of
this shaft there is a twenty foot drift
north through a splendid Ixxly of
high grade free milling ore, every
pound of which will pay to mine. The
shaft is in ore, as are slso several cuts
and a tunnel which was run through
I a Ixxly of ore for one hundred feet.
The reporter asked a miner working
' in this claim, how much ore was in
I sight, and he replied tint he. with the
rest of the miners at work there, esti
I mated that there was from 400 to 500
tons of imy ore in sight ready to be
; taken out. The ore is easily mined,
j as is proven by the fact that two men
took down and hoisted to the surface
over 25 tons of ore in less than one
week. The mill is a 450-lb five stamp
! and will only lie made use of during
i tew months to test the ores during
From this shaft the ore bodies on all
, the claims will lie worked, and the
miners employed in the mines express

been opened up in the drift from the
bottom of the shaft. The ore is an
oxide rich in copper. Jerome Mining
The county will lie more interested

It is rumored that a fine ore body
has at last been struck in the Dos Ca
bezas Consolidated. This is certainly
welcome news to Dos Caliezas and vi
cinity. The company has leeu work
ing in earnest for over a year and they
deserve success. They have a fine
property and when properly devel
oped will prove immensely profitable.
I. A. Moore, an old Yavapai boy
but now located in Maricopa county
is industriously engaged in develop
ing his Peoria group of mines in the
Walnut Grove district. He is sink
ing in a dyke of porphyry and has
some ore that will run five or six hun
dred dollars per ton. Some old min
ers estimate it higher. Within thirty
feet of the shaft beyond the hanging
wall can be counted two striugers
from two to eight inches in width
with gold plainly visible in all. With
a fifty foot cross cut could le cut
no less than ten such stringers. -Gazette.
A Runaway Engine.
A wild engine made a mad run
from the railroad yards at S-ligman
recently that might have been the
cause of a whole lot of trouble, but
which fortunately resulted in no seri
ous accident. An employee in the
yards climbed ou an engine and pull
til the throttle open, at the same time
pulling the reverse lever over. The
engine with a bound staJted eastward
ou a yard track w hich rattled the man
and he threw the reverse lever back,
briuginir the engine to a stop, but it
immediately started in the other di
rection. The man by this time was so
rattled that he did uot have the pres
ence of mind to close the throttle and
down through the yard the engine
dashed, over the switch and out on
the main track. The man who had
turned on the steam left the machine
to its fate by jumpiugoff. As he had
given full vcut to the steam the en
gine started on a wild run towards
the Colorado river, gaining speed all
the time until the
grade, but under the full head of
steam given it continued to ascent!
the grade at a rapid speed, and con
tiuued ou its course until past Aubrev
station, alxmt ten or twelve miles w est
of sieligman, where the supply of
in was exhausted. Fortunately it
had the right of way for the entire
distance and no damage result-d from
the nice, but the man who turned it
loose is no longer working in the

M OIL REFINERY FOR CALIFORNIA
The California oil business, which
I for some time has leeu at a low ebb,
gives promise now of an early revival.
In addition to the getting together of
the producers on a lasis which will
prove mutually beneficial to all, a
refinery of large capacity now seems
to be an assured fact. A telegram
from Stockton says that city is to
have such an institution at an earlv
day. The telegram reads as follows:
Stockton is to have a large oil refin
ery and in it will lie centered one of
the largtst industries ever established
in California. Today W. H. H. Hart
of San Francisco was in this city look

the corporation proposes to run a pipe
line or railroad from the Kern county
wells, so that the railroads can uot dic

duct. This- of course would make the
corporation entirely independent. A

was a laborer working in the mines at

through the investment of a few hun

Green Consolidated. Their stock has
increased from a few cents per share

Jim Keene, at present a noted stock
broker of Xew York, and formerly
one of the most successful brokers on
the San Francisco stock exchanfe,
having amassed a fortune there, was
once asked by a friend for a pointer
in reference to making money by
dealini? in stocks. Keene's reply was:
' "Buy 'em when they're low and sell
'em when they're high." Fortunes
hare been made in this way by peo
ple who never heard of Keene's epi
grammatic reply and by persons, too,
who probably never heard of a stock
; board. Notably among such fortu
nate ones were those wno investea in
United Verde stock during the early
period of its existence. Opportuni

7,000 feet, and consists of thirteen
claims. The formation is lime and
porphyry, with strong crop pings of
iron, gold, silver, lead and copper in
various places over the property.
Various assays of the rock taken from
this property show values running
from $23.60 to 564 per ton in gold,
silver and copper, besides quite a
quantity of lead. Every indication
points to a large deposit of mineral in
mis vicinity, anu it is Deiieveo oy

that at no great depth they will dis

great mineral belt.
The surroundings are very favor
able for working this property, as the
country is comparatively level and
free from obstructions. The water
supply, bv a little development, will
be ample for all needs, and fuel can
be obtained at a nominal cost. Easy
access can be had to the towns of
