Great Mineral Sources of Pima Coun
ty llcing Developed.
IN THE CANON I)B OJtO.
Construction of tho- Santa Cruz
Canal to Proceed.
Tho Democratic Pow-wow Opens In
Tucson Prominent Candidates
Special to Tim Kei-uducan.
Tucson, May 14. Pima county is
bound to bo tlio banner county for prec
ious metals boforo much moto time
elapses. The knowledge of tho great
mineral resources of Pima county is by
no means a now acquisition, but there
appears to havo been a fatality against
tlio devolopemcnt of mines from tho
outset. In somo instances prospects
were sold to persons who had never
had any exporienco in mining or tho
direction of economic developments,
and ttio greatest imnginab'o extrava
gance prevailed, when it como to the
working of properties, as well as gross
mismanagement. Such a state of af
fairs soon had tho effect of disheartening
tlio men putting up tlio monoy, nnd tho
prospects wero not doveloped. In other
cases outsiders wero sold worthless
properties, and tlio venders had no
further interest in tiicir success after
they got their money.
Then again, work on mines was un
dertaken whore f heir remoteness from
railroad and smelting or milling facili
ties, was the cause of the failures, that
might, with ordinary good facilities,
havo proven gram! successes, the prop
erties themselves being ricli ; but tlio
time was premature for their develop
ment. Sueii failures as occurred may
be attributed to somo of tho abovo
causes, or to the fact that the parties
undertaking tho work had too little
money ami depended on securing money
from other parties that was never forth
coming. Or perhaps in some eases tho
mine wns robbed to meet the expenses
as tlio work proceeded, when the do
velopement work hnd not been done to
put tho properties on a producing basis.
Thu steady and remarkablo inciense in
processes whereby tho precious metals
aresaved, audtliecxpcnses of mining re
duced to a minimum, is working a vast
and very favorable change in the indus
try. Solid, substantial men are di reel
ing the developments of mines in this
country, nud the result cannot hut be
favorable to the successful demonstra
tion of the fact that the nicest property
on earth to own is a mining property
that pays. Such properties give a man
an increased importance; he feels that
ho is adding to the wealth of the world
and not reaching in other people's
pockets for tho wherewithal to keep tho
mare going. Tho initio owner after get
ting the property in business shape, is
the most independent of men, ho is the
envied of all and he is looked up to as a
worker of good. An employer of men,
a provider for families, andji producer
from tho mother earth. Such men are
benefactors. Tho most recont develop
ment of mines lias occurred in the can
yon De Oro, about thirty miles from
Tucson, under tho supervision of Cap
tain Jack llurgcss well-known through
out Arizona, as being particularly well
advised In mining matters.
Tlio work already accomplished by
Captain Burgess mnkes a remarkable
shou'inc, and parties who have visited
the now camp ate loud in their praises
of the mineral development opun to
their inspection. Tho mineral bodies
are said to be mammoth in proportions,
and of good grade, of easy access, and
suscepttble of cheap reduction. In
connection witli these mines the Tucson
smelter will be run, and the ore will be
hauled to Tucson, where coke, ond other
requisites are obtainable nt reasonably
fair liguies. Already a large number
of men are emploped nnd everything
connected witli tiiesu properties is being
energetically pushed in n most business
like way. And the near future will see
tho Tucson smelter turning out bul
lion galoro. Por many years parties
acquainted with the mineral indica
tions of tho country adjacent to, and in
tho Canon Do Oro, hnvo believed that
futute would bring to light many lino
paying properties in that neighborhood,
out their attention to the recion gen
erally ended with n favorable express
ion, instead of development labor and
energy and now I am sorry to say tiiero
has been too little of the latter excellent
qualities in our mining camps during
tho past few years.
This now work will bo vastly bene
ficial to Tucson as can bo readily ap
preciated, and wo hope that ere long
tho new enterprise may ucnr tue same
relation to Tucson as tlio Mammoth
mine does at present, as it will then
help to advertise to tho world tho
micerol possibilities ot riraa county.

Many outBido parties who are inter

have been here nud left well satiellcd of
tho practicability of tlio canal, and tho
immense profit that will accrue from i's
construction; It is to be presumed the
work will go ahead in spito of any inter
nal misunderstandings that may exist
within tho ranks of tho intercstetl par
ties, as the scheme is a most promising
one, nnd disputes nnd differences don't
stop the great underflow of wator down
the Santa Cruz valley. Neither does it
make tlnms ami canals impracticable.

MANY TONS OF L0DEST0NE,
From Which Can Ro Made tho Finest
Steel in tho World,
Located Where It Can Be Easily nud
Economically Worked and Made
to Pay Handsomely.
The assertion that tho mineral re
sources" ol Arizona havo hardly been
touched and aro practically inexhausti
ble, is again forcibly Illustrated by the
existence of what is probably tho largest
body of lodeBtone, or high grado iron ore
in tho entire southwest, only a few
miles from this city.
From this class of oro is manufactured
tho finest steel in tho world known as
Swcedisli steel. The oio is magnetic, of
a dark or black load color, and of con
siderable hardness and weight. It at
tracts iron fillings, and communicates
to iron tho same.propcrty of attraction.
Hut its peculiar value consists in Its
communicating to a needle the property
of taking a direction to tho north and
south, a. property of inestimable utility
in navigation and surveying.
This botiy of oro lies about eight
miles north of Phtenix on the road to
the Phtenix mine, and tho Arizonn
canal passes through the deposit. The
vein is from eight to fiftyfeet in thick
nets and averages from 75 to 80 per
cent of puro iron. In spots as much as
half nu acre of this oro is exposed to
tlio surface, making it inexpensive to
Aside from the mines in Pennsyl
vania and Alabama, where the veins
aro small and the work of getting ore
out expensive, and tho vast deposits in
southeast Missouri, which is of a low
grade, the iron prokucing area of tlio
United states is not large; and as noth
ing of the kind is being or has ever
been worked in the southwest, this vast
deposit might prove n bonanza for somo
enterprising fellow or corporation.
Tho water power of the Arizona canal
would furnish sufficient power to work,
with little expense, all preliminary
work, drilling, etc., and. when needed,
power to run mills, foundries and fac
tories without number. The develop
ment of tho southwestern country will
give demand for manufactured iron of
all kinds, and the advent of railroads
will furnish facilities for eventually
shipping iron into California and Mex
ico cheaper, by far, that it can bo car
ried from Pennsylvania or elsewhere.
Iron mining may not, just at present,
bo as profitable in Arizona as gold or
silver, but witli the advance of civiliza
tion, tlio advent of the steam lioree,
improved machinery and electrical ap
pliances, tho demand for high grade
iron will increase in tho southwest until
the fortunate possessor of a deposit of
this class and extent will have a fortune
compared to which the mine of David
Morning will sink into insignificance.

constitution. There wero many Protec
tants in tho congregation, and today
hundreds of leading citizens indorse the
bishop's course. Tlio A. P. A's nro
silent, but nre getting recruits daily.
Persons known to bo members deny
connection with tho order and then
prosolyto for it. Cheyenne is today a
divided community. As n result of the
war on Catholicism, the bitterest feel
ing has hceu engendered. By giving it
out that Manager Ed Dickinson was an
activo member, the organizers have
drawn largely from tho ranks of Union
Pacific employers, notably from the
operatiug department. It is a fact that
trainmen who havo been closo friends
for years now pass daily without speak
ing. Dissension threaten several labor
unions. It is said that one of the
Knights ot Labor assemblies here has
decided to remove the A. P. A. element,
ft ie a common claim that tho society
has about an equal number ot Demo
crats and Republicans. Business hous
es have suffered or gained by the movo
ment. Ono large establishment lost
nineteen Catholic customers today.
The bishop and his supporters have
become the aggressors, and vow they
will stamp out the intruding society. "
