Camp in Arizona.
Ccorgo Potormiui, an old Pacific
Coaster and one who has Ivcn in
nearly cveiy mining camp on the
coast, returned Friday last from the
Hanuia Hala district. He piei the
new district a very llattoring send-o!V
and lclies it will be a great country
in the near future. The bonanza boys

but arc still all m ore. I heir rook i
of the same character a the original
find and every pan of dirt taken from
the bottom of the bhaft shows up u
line prospect. Thecountry for twenty
miles around is being pro-peeled and
every new character ol rati; orougiu
into camp is eagerly scanned by the
miners and in tho morriitijbright and
earlv the discoverer is watched and
his tr.uks are follewel by a score or
more of curious prospector.

pared to build a substantial building.
He will locate near the mine, where
th water was struck, and e:idcaor to
draw others to that spot and start a
town there. Nellie Cashman ha
gone away. Jim Coyle is there watch
ing his locations. Mrs. Uoylo Is with
him. Bloomer is still monumenting.
Tiicre are a number of old shafts
around the country and evidences of
old workings everywhere. Ju-t before
Peterman arrived there a propc-oiiug
party discovered the skeletons of two
men and three horses about ix miles
from camp. They had probably been
killed by Indians as there were no
signs of saddles or other handiwork of
man around. There i an old woman
liting at Harriburg who h.ts nionu
mentcd the whole country around
there, having no less than 300 loca
tion. Year after year she has relo
cated these claims but never recorded
any of them. A piece of paper bear
ing her namo can be found under
a pile of rocks in nearly e cry direc
tion. Her name is Ormillita. The
bonanza mine, it is understood, i in
litigation. It i ascrted that a fourth
party claims an interest in it and had
it not been for this the claim would
have been bonded long ago. It sems
that four men were in the party orig
inally and that the fourth man went
to Yuma for snppliei leaving the three
to prospect. While ho was gone those
rich mines were discovered. Three
claims were located and the fourth
iiarlv was left out in the cold. He
naturally objected to this style of
partnership and still objects. Mr.
Pcturman left a partner cu the ground
with a three months' supply of pro
visions and will return himself just a
soon as he can get things in rcadinc.
The Harrisburg mill will start up
in a few days and there will be plentv
fif rock to keep it going all the time.
This mill has ben run on ore from a
niHic near the niHl and only shut
I down for the reason that the ore at a
depth of 200 feet ran into sulphurets
which could not be milled. Mr. reter
man believes it will make a great
camp. He brought some rock with
him taken from a location made by
himself, which he will wo;' at once
on returning. The ore, 5 lively-looking
