May Be What Awaits King Edward.
He is Stricken Sudddnly and
Lies at Death's Ooor.
Coronation Ceremonies Have Been
Postponed Indefinitely London in
a State ot Suppressed Ex
citement and Suspense.
A London Telegram of June 24
says: With dramatic suddenness
the king has been stricken down on
the ere of his coronation. Tonight
he lies in a critical state at Bucking
If tonight's progress is maintained
he will probably tide over the effects
of the severe operation, which has
successfully removed the local trou
ble. But should any complication
occur, such as septic peritonitis or
blood poisoning, it feared his
majesty's present physical and ner
vous condition would prove unequal
to the strain involved. There is con
sequently intense anxiety as to the
outcome. 1 he king s doctors be
lieve that his majesty would have
been dead before now except for the
operation. His condition became so
alarming last night that at oue time
it was feared that death might ensue
before the surgeon's knife could af
ford him relief. Intense swelling in
the extremities, accompanied by
alarming symptoms of mortification,
constituted an emergency which de
manded immediate operation.
To the last he tried to avoid this,
and was willing to be carried to the
abbey for the coronation ceremony in
order that it should occur as ar
ranged. Sir Frederick Treves made an in
cision near the patient's groin and
carried it upward with an outward
slant for nearly four inches. The
obstruction was removed and tubing
was placed in the affected intestine.
Shortly before 2 o'clock this after
noon his majesty was moved from
his couch to the operating taMe and
an anaesthetic was administered.
King Edward's first words when
he recovered consciousness were to
ask for "George." the Prince of
Wales, who was waiting in the next"
room. He was immediately ad
mitted to his father's presence.
While the operation was being per
formed the great central court yard of
Buckingham palace, so lalely the
scene of such brilliant gatherings,
was utterly deserted, and an impres
sive silence reigned throughout the
building. Equerries talked in whis
pers, servants tiptoed about, and the
tension grew almost unbearable.
Then the word was passed around.
"All has gone well. The sudden
announcement of the postponement
of the coronation just on the eve of
the ceremonies caused the utmost
consternation everywhere. The news
spread like wild fire. His majesty,
under ordinary conditions, is not
looked upon as a good subject for an
operation, and though the king has
passed successfully through the or
deal, it is believed that four or five
weeks at the least must elapse before
he will be able to undergo the ardu-
r labor of the coronation ceremon
Therefore, no date can be indi
cated for the carrying out of the
Work will be started again tomor
row on the Belcher mine. They will
commence taking out ore from the
upper workings of the property, of
which there is said to be a large
amount opened up.
A small bed of opals has been
found near the Whipple military res
ervation on the laud owned by Gov
ernor Tritle. The" opals are not of
the valuable kind, but serves as a
suggestion that the precious gems
may be encountered with depth.
The El Capitan mine, near Agua
Faia, which is being worked by
Douglas, Lacey & Co, has every in
dication at its present stage of de
velopment of proving a wonder.
They have broken through the cap
ping over the rich body of sulphides
which was known to exist in the
mine, and the first ore test on this
new body was 1 1 per cent, a later as
say giving a value of 22 per cent cop
per. I his property bids fair to rival
any copper property in the territory.
The El Capitan has the same forma
tion and the same capping over its
sulphides as the United Verde.
The report is made of the sale of
the Gold Basis group of mines on
Groom creek. The group was owned
by Cleveland parties and while the
. , .
properties were very promising, tne
owners either did not have the means
to work it, or if they had the means,
, . , . ann(i -.1 :n tn develon-
declined K spend it in tne develop
rnent of the property. Thetniues are
practically undeveloped, although
the showing on them are sufficient to
warrant a mining man to prosecute
work vigorously in their development.
The price paid for the property is re
ported to l)e $)5.000. and the new
owners, it is said, mean business, and
win put up a steam noisi aim sink to
a depth of 550 feet. If they do they
ill make a mine, for the property is
located in a section where mines itn- i
prove with depth.
The shaft of the Prosperity mine
is down now to a depth of 350 feet,
and in the bottom of it there are
five feet of solid ore. Assays of the
ore at this depth gave a value 01
$34.80 in gold and other values in
copper and lead, which run the total
up to over $60. They have encoun
tered quite a flow of water at this
depth, but then during the existence
of the present drouth no one com
plains of finding water in a mine or
Arrangements have been made for
starting up work again on the Ven
ture Hill Mining company's property
at Jerome early in July. Parties
with capital have become interested
in the eompany and development
work will be prosecuted ou the claim
again. The Venture Hill is one of the
properties near Jerome which always
gave promise of developing into a
dividend payer with a reasonable
amount of development. While the
company was endeavoring to sell its
treasury stock to secure funds for
developing the mine, an owner of a
large interest in the mine threw his
onerea tor and it resulted in closing
down the mine. The man who inau
gurated this bear movement, after he
had successfully defeated the manage
ment in its efforts to work the mine
and caused it to be elosed down, set
quietly at work to buy up stock and
is now one of the largest stockhold
ers in the company. Whether he
will continue to act the dog-in-the
manger policy again, and harass the
company in its efforts to secure
money to work the property remains
to be seen. There are very few min
ing propositions in this county in the
development stage which gives bet
ter promise of big returns than the
Venture Hill, and all that is needed
is money to sink on the claim's.
Good ore has already been encoun
tered, and it is the history of mines
in that section that the ore improves
Sam Hubbard, Jr. has six men em
ployed in the development of the
Queen mine near Iron Springs. He
is running a tunnel in on the veinand
is in good ore.
The shaft in the Silver Belt mine
is down to a depth of 480 feet. The
ore near the surface of the mine was
very rich in silver and it produced
large quantities of the white
metal during the early days. In a
drift run at the 350 foot level it is
said that good gold ore was obtained
in the mine.
The turquoise properties, near the
Park, owned by John Doty and other

In a private letter, written by Sam
Powell, from Powell's camp, to a
friend in Prescott, the writer gives
the following mining news of that
camp: "We are running three eight
hour shifts on the Chicago, with a
steam hoist. We are down 110 feet,
with two 50-foot cross cuts and no
walls yet. All is iu ore. We will
cress cut again at 150, at 200 and run

There is unusual activity iu the
Vulture district these days. The
Vulture mine itself is about in the
same condition, the owners simply
waiting for circumstances to shape
themselves so they can do something
with their valuable property. But
the activity referred to is more partic
ularly that of others who are invad
ing that section in the exploration of
ground that has been traveled over
carelessly for years. Gates M. Fowler

as mentioned above, it is only a pros-;

claims at present. It is known to all
familiar with the Vulture region that
one can find gold in greater or less
quantity most anywhere in that vi- !
cinity. The country at oue time or
another has all been located for
long distance north of the j
Vulture, but Mr. Fowler's claims
are probably the farthest out on the
desert on which any practical work
has been done. He said that on Mon
day he met Messrs Messinger and
Bennett of Gleudale on an expedition
for the examination of a group of
claims in the same section owned by
a man named Gardham. Quite a
number of other prospectors are
rambling around in the same country
with water barrels, canteens, grub

Word was received yesterday at
the sheriff's office of a shooting

Mexican. Onlv meager information
was received, no details being f?iven.
It was to the effect that two
Mexicans eugaged in a quarrel while
drunk. One of them went into a
saloon and was followed shortly by
the other with a six-shooter which he
proceeded to unload into the body of
his advtrsary. He fired thiee shots,
