"Still water run deep," is an old
truism which ii often illustrated in
the channels of trade. Our reporter,
while strolling down Third street on
hN way to the court house to get hid
daily food for tho reflection of the
readers of tho PcosrECTOit, stepped into
Page' blacksmith shop and expressing
surprise at the amouut of work going
on was invited to inspect his stock.
Leading tho way Mr. Page took tho re
porter in the first place to tho adjoin
ing building, and descending a flight
of stairs found himself in a spacious
cellar, 40x50 feet in the clear, admira
bly ventilated, with shelving on all
sides running from iloortoroof, groan
ing under a weight of wagon and car.
riage wooden ware of nil descriptions.
Everything immaginablc for tho man
ufacture and repairing of all kinds of
vehicle, from " the lightest buggy to
tho heavy freighters wagon was there.
Nothing but tho choicest stock is kept
lierc. Second growth hickory and ash
from Pennsylvania and New Jersey
which Mr. Page orders in car lots, and
which is selected for him by experi
enced men who are instructed to ship
on only tli best qualities especially
adapted to a dry climate. This is the
secrst of his success; nothing is re
ceived unless up to standard.
On asking tho amount of raw mate
rial on hand the reporter was informed
that $7,000 would net covoi it. Not a
crooked piece was to be seen anywhere
the temperature being kept the same
as near as possible throughout the
year makes this an impossibility. One
shelf was loaded with carriage hard
ware of all descriptions, a full stock of
which Mr. Page keeps constantly on
Repairing to tho shop the rsporter
witnessed several vehicles in the course
of construction, and old ones being
overhauled. An immense building in
the next block was then viaitsd. This
is the repository and finishing de
partment. An experienced man is
employed all of the time, painting and
finishing the work as it comes from
the shop. A number of vehicles of
different patterns were arranged about
the room, tome for sale and some
which had just been finished for cus
tomers. The prices were so low that
the reporter inquired how it was that
he could manufacture and sell first
class work at such figures? Mr. Page
replied that he hail determined to com
pete with eastern factories and was able
to do so from the fact that he pur
chased from firat hands by car loads,
and paid cash for all of his material.
Any one wishing a buggy from $125
to 250 can be accommodated, and can
rest assured that the work wil be done,
not half done as the case is with all
shoddy cistern work. The hundreds
of vehicles turned out of his shops
bear witness to the assertion that all
trori t tcarrantid.
Mr. Page does all the- repairing for
tlic stage companies and livery stables
And everybody coming to Tombstone
with the intention of remaining is al
ways referred to him when asking for
place to purchase anything in the
line of vehicles.
Taken all together it is an institu
tion which one would not expect to
find in a city the size of Tomlmtone
or even in Arizona, and Cochise county
should feel proud of the possession of
such a thriving, prosperous and exten
sive establishment as our reporter
found this to be.
Thanking Mr. Page for his courtesy
in devoting his time toourinquisitive
neas, we left Mm with an injunction to
U.. or P. Ilnll.
Tlic K. of T. of this city will giv a
ball on the 19th of February-, which

Information in regard to the recent
killing cf Mexican sheep herders on
Bonita creek, Grahaii county, by cow
boys in the employ of tire Chiricahua
Cattle company is still far from defi
nite, says the Wilcox Stockman. The
officers who went from Solomomille
to tho scene of the tragedy found the
bodies of three Mexicans, but is be
lieved by wjmc that two "others were
killed. There were only three cowboys
engaged in the killing Walter Birch
field, John Roper and Billy Woods
though several others rode up justafter
the fight. Birchfield, who was wound
ed in the leg, and Roper arc under ar
rest at Solomonvillc, but Woods was
not apprehended. The cowboys claim
that they were fired on first by the
Mexicans. As to the truth or falsity
of this statement it is hard to judge,
as none of the Mexicans seem to ha.c
escaped to tell their side of tho story.
In any case no blame can be attached
to the management of the Chiricahua
company for the lamentable affair, as
that company is composed of men who
arc bitterly opposed to all acts of vio
lence and outlawry! and the tragedy is
regretted by no one more than by
Theodore F. White is at present at
Solomomille investigating the affair,
and Mr. Peter Bolan who has been en
gaged by the accused cowboys to de
fend them, is in Tombstone. . Colonel
Herring will probably also be retained
by the defense.

WEEKLY MINING REPORT.
A Steady Ontput With No
The Mining Interests in the Territory
The past week lias shown no great
changes in this particular locality,
neither has any startling clu.ugc taken
place in the Territory. Tho Ilarqua
Hala strike is not by liny means a
fraud, neither is it the stupendous
strike which it has been represented
to be by those who Lave an object in
booming it. A letter received by Hob
Upton, of this city, from a party well
known here, who is at present in the
Centennial district, states that the
outlook is ery favorable foracamn
nothing has been done vet to
prove anything beyond the existence
of a very large ledge or deposit of gold
The new discovery near Nogalcs is
attracting some attention. The Silver
Belle district is on the eve of n verita
ble boom and Pima county is rapidly
striding to the front as a bullion-nro-
In our own county tho outlook is
by no jnvans discouraging. The Coi-
pcr Queen continues to be the largest
producer of copper in the Territory
and the prospect of the French syndi
date, which controls S5 per cent of
the output of the world, making con
tracts for a term of 1-1 years nt the
present rate, has stimulated many
owners of copper properties in that vi
cinity to work their claims, which
show that there is an abundance of
virgin g.oand there still undeveloped.
In our own particular district come
few changes for the better have taken
place. The hitch in the removal of the
Head Center mill from Contention to
Tombstone has been overcome and
the work will probably 1m; begun this
week and completed as soon as men
and teams can do it.
Work will ako bo commenced on
tho Ground Hog and Vizina. The ex
tensive dumps of the latter mine will
pay to run through the mill, and will
probably be so treated as soon as the
stamps are ready to drop.
Tho usual amount of rich ore has
been shipjicd from tho Herschal dur
ing the week. Tho Mamie has started
The Franklin is showing up a very
rich ledge of ore, as is also the Sea
Serge and other claims on this little
Iionauza ledge. Jack Martin, who owns
the north extension of the Mamie, is
cutting for the ledge with the prospect
of getting something good when he
does striko it, as tho Mamie shows
stronger and better in tho north end
The Emerald continues to ship her
share of rich ore, while we will proba
bly be able to chronicle in our next re
port the starting of the new machinery
at the Bunker Hill.
The T. M. and M. Company arc
moving along doing a large amount of
development work and fchowing up im
mense bodies of ore, only enough
being extracted from the three claims
being worked to pay running expenses.
All told there are about 300 men
employed in mining in this district at
present, including chloridcrs. There
would be twice that number if thoc
who own properly would work it or
allow someone else to do so.
The Silver Belle group, fituated
near Tucson, is reported sold to Eng
lish parties. It is said the new'own
ers will expend $1,500,000 in develop
ment work and erecting plants.
Tho Carlislo Mining Company of
New Mexico paid on December 10th
an interim dividend of 12 cents per
share, aggregating 25,000, making
$185,000 paid this year and $385,000
paid to date.

Tho Hardshell and Hermosn mines
in the Harshaw mining district aro re
ported to be improving in richness,
and the machinery for a live-stamp
mill is now being placed on the Hcr
mosa and will be ready for business
about tho 15th of February. A Mr.
Linden has taken a lea-e on the
Hardshell and 200-ounce ore ha
lately been discovered. The Trench
mine has cloeed down; the Blue Noe
is running; a new and rich strike has
been made in the fiureka. From tlii-t
riort it would seem that Harshaw
is coming to tl.o front rapidly with
every promise of becoming one of the
best camps in Pima county.
The tale of the great Reymert mines
in Pinal county has not yet been con
suiuated, although, says the S. F. Bul
letin, two oilers hae bevn made fur
the property, one of $v00,000 eashj
and another of ?1."0,000 to Le paid
within sixty days. Neither offer ha
been accepted as J. D. Reymert, it is
said, asks .1,000,000 for his interests.
The mines are believed bv some to be
equal to the Comstock lode.
A telegram yesterday to the Tr.wou
Citizen announces the completion t
an important mining sale in Soiiora.
The property sold is a group of gold
mine, including the Ft. l.iii.-, St. Juan
and St. Pedro, and Messrs. W. L. Ken
gla and L. M. Waur were half owners.
The tale wa made to an Engli.-di com
pany, who will put in extensive im
provements and machinery for the re
duction of the ore. The sale Wits for
$150,030, and was negotiated al Wash

The Arizonau interviewed W.P. Lyle
on his return from the gold camp and
reports him thus:
Mr. Lyle fays that Sullivan, Stein
ami v.liarton have three locations that
will undoubtedly yirid them a fortune,
whether they sell or do not sell. "If
anyone says there is no good ore in the
district," observed Mr. Lyle, "they are

to start in vviih, and take all the
chances. These mav be good mines
but 50 far it is simply a puzzle. The
