Editoh Ikon CotiNxy News:
In your issuo cf U10 20 th ult. I
read that a gontleman from Salt
Lako City was tuken out to Iron
town by Mr Andrew Corry, und1
that cnnttnl.nlniitv n( i! in nwnillnrr
... f F1- j . .. . ..Hlva(l&
his report on tho condition of things
in unit around Iron City,
Aro you not mistaken; Androw
Corry does not own Iron City nor
anything in it, nor any of the mines
And yet tliero is not a mino that
is worth having but what is owned
by someone, and has cost tho own
ers at least $25 nn aero.
Then Mr. Corry Iiiib not obtained
tho right from me to report the sale
of Iron City, nor anything in it.and
I am the ownor of Iron Cily.Irnn
Co. Utah, and of everything in it
and I own the only mines that are
worth working in thut neighbor
hood both for quantity and quality
i Tliero is much of tho iron of Iron
Vounty thot bus so much copper,
t itnnium, apatite, phosphorous und
sulphur in that it will neither make
good iron nor steel.
Now hundreds of thousands of
dollars have been expended to get
iiiv property in tho shape that it is
in, and to obtain title thereto; in
order that I could got Capitalists to
como hero and deveiopo these great
resources I have traveled thousands
of miles mid spent thousands of
dollars, to set forth our advantages
for the investment of Capital; huve
written articles and they have boon
published in Eactern papers 11?
well ob California, alto in tho Utah
papers. I hovo succeeded in getting
persons to como here with a view to
invddt. Persons who do own an
iron initio and who notcr spent a
dollar in gotting them hero, have
sought them and said, oh, thero is
such an ubundanco of iron and
coul hore that you need not pur
chase, hire me to take vou around,
I will show you claims that you can
jump. ThuB men have boen turned
from thnirpurposo of buying, and
caused to spend thousands in fruit'
less labor and litigation, indeed
they spend moro than would havo
perohuscd tfj.'J cjaiiujis thoy desired
and then they did not got them but
left Iron County in diBgust
This lust HummiT partios whom
the writer induced to como to this
country, on arrival, wero met by
this clans of men, taken around,
shown tho bt ct iron claims in the
county, iisMind by theso follows
that they eiuild looato them, did
so,plncing Inciition Notices on thorn
paying for nmrding them, but
when they g' t 10 iho Land Offico
found that tiny had been hold by
United Slates Patents for tho last
Hf von yen rs.thy did not stop to
build iron works butlcft in disgust.
What would theso parlies say of
me if I iM-iti to engago for tho sako
01 milking a fnv dollars to take
speculators nrou id.and show them
bauds of horsch, horde of stock,
flocks of sheep, ranches or farms,
and tell said strangers howl
thought they could got possession
without purqliutio as contrary
to the wishes ofthoownors;
I have bought and paid for nil I
claim in Iron 1 0. and I am not do
drfiirnut of any one's aid in dis
posing of it.
What you have Baid in your
pnpembotit holding our resources
before tho eye of tho capitalist, is
all right an fur us, itgooa, but thero
is danger of sayiug too much; what
wo niiuht nil join in, that would
iimel assuredly bonofit us all,
would bo tho building of railroads
through tho ounty, and connecting
us with die outsido world, a com
mittee might bo appointed aa olso

HAD IT DOWN" FINE, v,
Wliare tha Jawtbarp Htlll Ranka High aa
The sun had Just broken oror th topi
of' tho Oiarlcsono warm morning in July,
says tho Chicago Ilorald. The milt that
always sottlos thickly over theso halt
mountains with tho night-fall was go
ing to pieces and disappearing as tho
sun roso hlghor, loavlnfr the green and
dense vorduro hoary and wet with the
dow. In a cozy nook, on a log oror
hanglng tho wild Uttlo stream that
daBhed down from a gushing spring
abovo, a natlvo was seated, earnestly
playing a Jowsharp. Ho twangod tha
vlbrknt metal with his thumb, koaplng
tlmo by splashing ono ot his bare feat In
tho oloar water below. Af tor ton min
utes, during which tlmo tho sun had got
high enough to shlno straight into his
oyos, ho took tho harp from his mouth
and, wiping It on tho leg of his trousers,
"Tharl Ef that don sottl' 'or, whut
Boforu ho had spoken another word a
stranger stopped from boblnd a big treo
and addressod him:
"That was tho best tune I erer heard
played on ono of those Instruments."
Tho mountaineor lookod at the
strangor a moment, and then, drawing
hlmsolf up in a knot on tho log, laid:
"D'yo moan It, mister?11 -
"Mean It? Ot course. Why flo -i
'It'a lak this, mister. Ycr r 1iot
'con jost on the algo o' ,liiin' th'
rnpson gal, ovor 'n th' hulior, fer
nioro'n ur yar, an' whon th' peppln' time
kern she up an' says thot I kain't hoy 'or
'less I kin play thor Jows'a'p. I bin
praotlcln' hyar on this log for nigh a
month now, I reckon, ovory day In th'
mornln' 'foro sunup', an' I wui thlnkln
cz I sot hyar, oz ef I didn't git th han
o' it purty soon, it'd bo good-bye, Sat.
But yor mako mo fool bettor, stranger,
an' of yor round thoso parts nox' week
os' drop ovor on thor s3opo 'cross th'
way an' yo kin bo my boat man."
As tho strangor movod on down the
path tho mountalnoor struck up his
tuno again and played with a vim that
was ovldonce that tho stranger had been
telling the truth.
Along with tho flddlo, tho jowsharp
still ranks high as a musical instru
ment in tho mountain regions ot Arkan
sas and Missouri. A natlvo who can't
play the Jowsharp is looked upon as
having very poor prospoots.
