T. F. Metr has returned from a few
days trip round the circle. Mr. Metz
looked in at the towns of Turquoise,
Pearce and Tombstone, and expresses
his opinion that business generally is
looking up and the towns look prosper
ous. The season, from a business
standpoint, will be a successful one.
Mr. Mets supplies these places with a
large quantity of his goods.
Col. W. A. Fiege is in Tucson from
Busselville in the Dragoons, and tells
the Star that the Penbody mines which
have been shipping from two to three
car loads of ore a day to the El Paso
smelter, have ceased shipment on ac
count of the Increased smelter charge.
It is more than probable that the com
pany will put up its own smelting plant
at the mines in the near future. One
hundred and fifty miners are employed
in taking out ore, which is being piled
up on the dumps. The mines continue
to show up large quantities of high
The city council of El Paso has
granted a franchise for a long distance
telephone line in El Paso to connect
with Doming and Silver City.
The El Paso Times says: It looks
very much as if the Arizona and New
Mexico railroad is to be extended from
Clifton to El Paso at an early day. Ru
mors to this effect are very persistent
and it is significant that the chief engi
neer of the road has 'made his home in
El Paso, and there is some talk of the
general manager locating here,
RED MEN PEAST.
A Great Banquet, With Songs,
Speeches and Toasts.
Last night the' usual meeting of Co
chise Tribe No. 7, Improved Order of
Red Men, met in council at their wig
wam. After the transaction of important
business the members of the 'lodge re-
paired to the well known restaurant of
Henry Collman at the brewery,. accom
panled by a number of invited guests.
Mr. Collman had prepared a banquet
lit for a Roman emperor. The room
was beautifully illuminated with large
Chinese lanterns and decorated with
the, flag and other artistic adornments.
Over forty guests sat down to the ta
bles. The owner of this restaurant
has the art of pleasing the palate of
the most critical guest, and on this oc
casion he was particularly successful.
The finest product of Milwaukee, the
well matured vintage of Madame Cli
quot aud the famed Cuban fumous lux
ury were in profusion.
Songs, speeches and toasts succeeded
oach other in rapid succession, and the
guests recognized to the full the talent
that is included in the ranks of the
Red Men, and they learned, too, of the
benefits that accrue to the lucky mem
bers of the community that are Red
English Gold Mine.
Up in an obscure corner of north
Wales the only gold mine in the united
kingdom is being worked. It is known
as "St. David's." Here a profitable
plant, covering 730 acres, is In active
operation. Eight or nine lodes out
crop on the property, three of which
have been tapped. One of the "reefs"
averages one and one-half feet in width,
smother two and one-half feet in width'
nnd the broadest five feet. The total
results from all sources show a recov
oryof fourteen and one-half penny
weights gold per ton of ore, and a total
cost of mining, milling and concentra
tion is placed at the extremely low fig
ure of 8 shillings ($2) a ton. The use of
water power and the hydraulic mining
system, combined with a low wage
scale, enable this abnormally cheap
cost of production, and the' 00,000
(8291,990) of the company's capital stock
is paying out 8 shillings ($2) a share.
The St. David's mine is said to be still
undiscovered as far as its ultimate pos
sibilities are concerned.
Mme. Elrado will remain a few
days longer. There is a general anxi
ety evinsed by our people to learn their
future, and to remedy their faults by a
true knowledge of themselves. To de
lay is to lose this opportunity. S'eek
while yet there is time the council that
you will receive irom thU talented
The Truckeo River Electric Power
company has announced that the plant
is completed and the wire for transmis
sion of power to tho mines on the Corn
stock lode have beon connected at both
ends. A celebration to commemorate'
the event will be held at Virginia City
on the 20th instant, and the supposition
Is that work will immediately be begun
undor the new system. But tt6 the wa

compelled to shut down for that rea
son, there may be another delay added
to tho many disappointments of the In

The Beginning of the Cobre Grande

court yesterday was the beginning of
the case of the Cobre Grande Copper
company vs. W. C. Greene, George
Mitchell, Phoenix National bank, etal.
TLe attorneys appearing for the
plaintiff were Messrs. Chalmers and
Jamison and Walter Bennett of this

Cox and Jerry Milky of this city, Rob
ert E. Morrison of Prescott-aud H. M.
Hubbard of New York, vhose connec

has been referred to so' frequently in
the Cobre Graude litigation.
LOST GOLD HUNTERS SUFFER.
Scores of Stampeders from Dawson
Wander and Nearly Starve.
Victoria, B. C, Oct. 26. A Hory
of great hardship and suffering' and
the narrow escape from death of nearly
109 gold seekers is brought from Alaska
by E- B. Scroggle and Mining Reeord'er
Burwash, who have justreached hejre
from Clear creek, where a rich find
was recently made. The find caused
a stampede among the miners at Daw
son, and while the adventurers were
on their way to the new field manyof
them lost their way. Frank Skvi'n,
the pugilist was among the number.
Many were without food except what
they could pick up, such as roots and
berries, or what little game they could
kill. The keenest suffering resulted
from their destitution, and when a set;
tlement was reaobed many of the wan
derers were reduced to skeletons and
their clothes were so worn and torn as
to afford them little protection. So
far as known no lives were lost.

Simla, Oct. 20. The viceroy, -Lord
Curzon of Kedleston, in a speech -before

ple were receiving relief. He ex
pressed the hope, however, that in a
month these would return to their

deaths were traceable to the famine,
and that the loss of the crops Involved

come millions for loss of cattle At the
end of August 854 lakhs of rupees had
been expended as alms, and the gov
ernment further expected to spend J50
kkhs up to March next. Besides this,
1,000,000 had been contributed by pri
The viceroy complimented the relief
committees, alluded to many instances
of native chivalry and devotion, and to
English military and civil servants dy
