At the time of issuing our last re
port the mines, mills and furnace of
the Company were idle, in conse
quence of the .strike against the re
duction of wages in tlie Tombstone
Mining District. This strike continued
for five months, and ended in an
agreement satisfactory to both the
company and the miners.
We resumed operations in October,-
1884, and up to July 1, 1SSG, had

Tins bended debt of ihe company,
July 1st, amounted to r,00,000,
with ea.-h in hand 27,S23.4S, and
mine and mill Mipplips on liand, paid
for, amounting to ?1G,435.S9. Tlie
bonded debt, with interest, July let,

cash in hand $31,160.82, and mine,
mill and furnace supplies on hand,
paid for, amounting to $16,199.41.
The Company has no floating debt,
all current expenses being paid
Detail reports of mining and metal
lurgical operations, together with de
tail itemized financial statement0, are
on fil') at this office, subject to the in
spection of all stockholders.
It will be seen from the foregoing
statcmcn that but little reduction has
"been effected in the bonded debt since
our last report, nearly all the profit
realized during the intermediate time
having been expended in the necess
ary purchase and improvement of ad
ditional property, and in extricating
the Company from litigation. That
we should, while making these inevit
able expenditures, have reduced the
debt at all, in the faee of the rapid
and continuing decline in the price of
siher, is matter for congratulation.
When we resumed work in October,
18S4, we received for silver $1.10 per
ounce. We now receive 91 cents per
ounce, a fall in price which has more
than counter-'jalauced jthc reduction
in wages and cost of supplies, and
the other economics attending upon
improved facilitiea and processes. On
a bullion production equal to ours of
the past year the difference between
$1 10 :(iul 91 cents per ounce would
amount to at least $100,000 per year,
and so vitally does this full in the
price of silver affect the interests of
the Company, that unless an advance
should ociur it will bo necessary to
suspend mining and milling nt the
end of this month. In that event,
projecting and development of the
mines wjll lie continued to a moderate
degree, while awaiting a reaction in
the silver market, or the discoveiy of
ore bodies sufficiently large and rich
to sustain operations with a perman
ently lower price for tlie metal.
Soon after resuming operations in
October, 1884, we reached ore bodies
in the West Side mine, of sufficient
size and richness ta run the Corbin
Mill at Charleston, at a profit, for a
period of six months, after which the
quantity and quality of the ore grad
ually fell off until milling at Charles
ton involved the Company in a losi,
and the Amalgamating Mill there was,
in consequence, shut down.
The alternative was presented of
abandoning the mines at Tombstone,
or making arrangements for milling
close to them, whereby the cost of
hauling the ore ten miles, with its at
tendant loss, could be saved.
In working the aforementioned
West Side ore bodies, we had reached
the side line between us and property
belonging to the successors of the
Girard Mining Company, ami we had
alrcadj' reached the end line between
the Toughnut and the Girard Mines.
The United Sttlphuret Mine lay just
beyond, and in the direct line of our
West Side workings, from the third
and fourth levels.
On the Girard mine was an almost
new, thoroughly equipped, 20-stamp
mill, costing $S5,000, which could bo
readily connected by steam wire-rope
tramways, with the West Side, To.igh
nut, Goodenough, Combination and
the Xorth-west Mines, in addition to
the Girard Hoisting Work, with
which it was already so connected.
Its availability for our purposes in
duced us to open negotiations for its
purchase, and all the Girard Mining
and Milling Property, with the Sul
phuiet Pumping Plant, came into the
possession of this Company in Aug
ust, lSSi), at a price far below its orig
inal cost, since which time the whole
amount of tho purchase-money has
been paid. At the same time 120,000
shares, beiug three-fifths of the whole
capital stock of the United Sulphuiet
Mining Company, were purchased,
and are now owned by this Company.
The contemplated tramway connec
tions wiih the sunounding mines
were completed, and the Girard Mill
stalled Xuyemb r 1, ISz'j, since which
date it has been steadily running to
its full capacity, treating, up to the
1st hint., 18,000 tons of ore of an aver
age battery assay of 22.3 oz. per ton.
The Coneentraliug Mill and Furn
ace at Charleston continued to yield
a profit until the bedded tailings
which could be economically con
centrated were exhausted. The mill
was then removed to Tomustone, at
tached to the Girard Mill, and started
June 1, 1SS6.
About 20,000 tons of the poorest
tailings, largely slimes still remain at
Charleston but they are so low in lead
and silver that I hey cannot now bo
profitably worked by any known pro
cess, The accumulation of Conoentrates
having been exhausted, the furnace
''blew out" the 9th ult having made
an interrupted ruu of eleven months.
Evciything is in readiness to "blow
in" again and we shall prabably start
the furnace about November 1st next,
working up the accumulation of con
centrates at the Giraid Mill, with
Lucky-Cuss ores as a flux, and such
lead ores as we can purchase to ad
vantage. The falling off in tho quantity and
quality of our ore in the beginning of
the year 1S84 was met by a reduction
in wages and in the expense of the
superintendence of the Company's
business and a moderate profit was re
alized in th next fiscal year. A fur
ther fall in the giade of ore a year ago
was met by the transfer cf ourmilling
operations to the immediate vicinity
of tjie mines and a small profit still
secured, although the 'price of silver
fell within the fiscal year nearly 10
per cent. The additional fall of 7 per
cent within the past thirty days caus
es a loss to the Company. The facili
ties we have obtained are extensive
and cconominal, but they are not
equal to handling profitably extreme
ly, low grade ores with silver much be
low $1 per oz. To further reduce the
cost af production seems impracti
cable. I During the first six months of this
, year (1S86) we mined and milled 13,-
23S ton of ore. The average cost of
mining, milling, hauling, pumping,
constiuclion work, in fact, every di.s
burscmcut at the mines and mills was
only $12.90 per ton. From this it
will be seen that we arc able to run
the plant without loss on oi? of very
low grade while prospecting for new
ore-bodies. The discovery of an ore
body of old-time size and grado
would enable us to realize a ptof.t,
despite the low price of silver.

ever is generally discredited.
f One of the most reprehensible things
about mining is the attempt so often
made to create booms in camps which
possess no merit, or where thfc fact is
not sufficiently determined to war
rant it. The Magdalena gold excite
ment is a case in point. There is un
doubtedly gold there and it may de
velop into a paying camp, but this
premature boom will greatly retard it.
The best information obtainable in
dicates that it will never be a poor
man's camp. The rich ores are so f.tr
found in small pockets, and those are
neither sufficiently large nor numer
ous to pay unless worked with the
low giade on a large scale, such as
only a fully-opened mine will justify
Such premature booms not only in
jure the camp itself, but occasion
great loss to many poor prospectors
who rush in, deluded by the exag
gerated reports, and they can ill afford
to stand it. Inter Republics.
