PROSPECTOR'S RICR STRIKE.
There Was So Much Gold He
Imagined He Was Crazy and
Refrained From Work.
The total vote cast at Saturday's
primaries was 708. Of course every
one knows there are not that many
democrats in Prescott. Repeating
was the order of the day, and it was
rumored on the streets that as high
as five ballots had been put into the
box by one man.
Fred H. Potter jr., will leave tomor

cation in his old home at Saginaw,
Michigan. In reality he expects to
remain there permanently, jjunny

Charles Butler, brother of Richard
Butler, a printer in the employ of
this office, died in Bisbee on Satur
day night. A telegram received yes
terday announced the fact but gave
no particulars of his death.
V. T. Hall, who has been visiting
his family in Prescott for some weeks,
left today for Los Pejos jnine, in
Mexico, to assume his duties as fore
man of the mill at that property.
While here he "read up on reduc

For three weeks after Berger John
son made his rich gold find in San
Domingo district, he did not do a
stroke of work on it. His reason for
not doing anv is the most curious
imaginable. He said the ledges
looked rich and he drilled a six inch
bole into it, filled it with powder aud
touched it off. The result was para
lyzing, wherever he looked he saw
glittering gold. One did uot have a
glass to find it. Great flakes of it
were visible just ten feet away. John
son at first thought he was a victim
of an optical illusion, which he tried
to dispel by covering his eyes ana
his hands. Then he looked at the
ore again, but the flakes were still
there. Again he covered his eyes,
but the illusion, if it was oue, re
mained. Even after he had ham
mered up some of the rock and htld
the free gold in his hand he was un
able to believe iu his good luck. It
was at this point that he began to
suspect that his mind had weakened.
His joy was tempered wnn tne iear
that he was eoine crazv. rie actu

himself in the meantime his mind was
right on all other subjects, lie
then became convinced it was all
right as to the mine, and then he ad
to work taking out an $185 sack of
ore. He said nothing of his find to
the outside world, but the news of the
fine filtered out, as the news of all
great discoveries iu gold does, in some
mysterious way, aud now prospec

all parts of the country.
..crint on to the stock induced Man
ager Eil. Block to request him to
write his candid opinion about it,
which he did. Mr. Block has per
mitted the Journal-Miner, the use of
this letter, which is here produced:
Prescott, A. T., Aug. 21. 1902.
Mr. Ed. Block, Manager Merchants
Dear Sir: In compliance with your
request I have made a cursory exami
nation of the Merchants' Mining
company's property in Big Bug Dis
trict. Arizona, and I enclose you here
with copy of assays from same.
The main vein, as exposed to a
depth of 240 feet in the new shaft
and exploited by the 165 foot and the
210 foot levels, promises a heavy
milling tonnage of ore that will aver
age about $25.00 per ton.
The body of the high grade "free
milling" ore encountered in the north
drift from the bottom of the shaft is
not, in mv opinion, a mere "pipe" or
"stringer'' of rich ore. but rather a
valuable and well defined ore chute
fnmml hv the intersection with the
main ledge at this point of a small
cross vein which is also traceable on
the surface near the hoist. I think
upon further exploitation you will
find that this high grade ore body is
of considerable extent. The average
assav I obtained at this point was

Our properties have recently been
visited by two distinguished mining
men. The first oue was a French
Swiss mining engineer from Denver
Colorado, has manv years experience
in manv parts of the world, and is
considered an authority, especially
on eoDDer milling. He pronounced
our chances for the opening up of
immense ore bodies the best he has
seen in Arizona. Of the Swiss Girl
he said that we had a much better
showing in one single dump than he
had seen in the entire Jerome sec-
t on. outside ot the Lntted erue
mine, of course. The other gentle
man expressed his belief, that we
would unearth large ore bodies in the
Swiss Girl mine before reaching 250
feet depth. The great extent of our
nmnertv. and abundant mineral
showing impressed them alike.

The Victor Mine.
M. S. Taft has made a remarkably
good showiug in the Victor mine on
Lynx creek since commencing opera
tions. Last September active opera
tions were practically begun almost
at the crass roots. The shaft.
iu-1 equipped with fine hoisting works, is
to i now down over 300 feet and 1000 feet
of drifts aud crosscuts have Deen run.
A pood water supply comes from the
mine and new pumps are now being
installed. For the past three months
to a three-stamp mill of the Merrill pat-
nosed in the old shaft 280 feet
northbound on tbe win, shows con
siderable toiiuage of h.avy lead ore
of good milliuR value. It is true that
this ore contains considerable zinc
which would detract from its value
as a smelting ore, but by " jigging"
this ore in the mill (you contemplate)

ated from the lead and iron minerals
and will undoubtedly make a vttiu

inc composition the polls had not
closed, so the result cannot be told.
There were two ticKets m the DelO,

tbe other as the "big four." The lat

of individuals who have undertaken
to manipulate the politics of this
county, Col. J.F. Wilson. Pat Farley,
Joe Hobbs and Pat O Sullivan. The
big four ticket carried the name of J.
