WEEKLY MINING REPORT.
Mining matters are looking brighter
than last week. Several new and im
portant strikes have been made, the de
tails of which we are not permitted to
publish. For some reason the greatest
reticence is being observed by mine
owners, and it is next to impossible to
get at bottom facts. Properties are con
tinually changing hands, and there is, an
under current which presages great
activity in the near future. Exploitation
is being actively prosecuted, and the
camp is getting down to solid business.
Not less than 500 men are 'employed by
the different mines, and yet there is no
outward appearance ot interest or ex
citement. Yet the feeling of confidence
is strengthening, and altogether the out
look has not been as bright in three

There is nothing new to report in the
operations of this great corporation.
Work on the new shaft and pump house
continues with unabated vieor. and the
usual amount of ore is going to the mill
from the Emerald, State of Maine, Silver
Thread, Boss, "'87'' and other properties
of the company.
Work of enlarging the main shaft to a
double compartment advances as rapidly
as three shifts can effect the same. A
large quantity of machinery for the mill
is now on the ground, and the grade is
nearly completed. The new buildings
are going up rapidly. Thirty-five men
Although this property has only
twelve men employed, it has 2,500 feet
of systematic development work, and
sufficient quantity of ore in sight to war
rant the erection of a mill. Twenty-five
thousand dollars worth of ore has been
shipped from it. Superintendent Fisher
returned from the east last week, and the
President of the company is expected
here the coming week, when important
matters will be decided upon looking to
a vigorous prosecution of the work.
The Ground Hog is considered one of
the best properties in the camp.
New double-compartment shaft down
-.venty feet. Three shifts at work.
This shaft will tap a large ore body al
ready developed by drift and winze.
Recently a good body of ore has been
developed in this property. A carload
was shipped this week and another will
be shipped the coming week.
What is considered an important strike
was made in this property yesterday.
The drift from the 100 foot station, in 20
feet, encountered a body of high grade
ore, and the end is not yet.

It Causes the Killing of a Man and
the Wounding of Another.
Last Wednesday, Joe Smith, a -cowboy
employed by Smith & Bodie, went
into Bisbee, got on a spree, and about 2
o'clock in the morning fired off his six-
shooter in Clark & Letson's saloon,
shooting into the floor. Deputy Sheriff
Dan Simons, who was present, went up
to him and endeavored to arrest him.
Instead of submitting, Smith raised his
pistol and fired at the Deputy, the ball
passing through his coat sleeve and
thence into his left side. Simons then
drew his pistol and shot Smith through
the heart, causing instant death. Simons
was brought into Tombstone Thursday,
where his wound was dressed by Dr.
Goodfellow, who pronounces it not at all
dangerous. The general verdict of the
people is that the killing was justifiable.
Smith came here about a year ago from
Montana, and was represented to be
quiet and peaceable when not drinking,
but when crazed with whisky, was
quarrelsome and dangerous.
Sheriff Owens Dots Up a Gang of
Sheriff Owens of Apache county, and
posse, wno went to J. onto Basin to ar
rest Tewksbury and Graham, were more
successful than Sheriff Mulvenon of Pres
cott. About noon on September 4th
at Holbraok, Sheriff Owens of Apache
county shot and killed three men
and wounded a foutth. The dead
men were desperadoes from Tonto Basin,
and the Sheriff had warrants for their ar
rest as sheep and cattle thieves. The
Sheriff found his men in a little shanty at
Holbrook, adjoining the livery stable of
Brown and Kinders. He ordered the
men to surrender and they opened fire on
him in an instant. He replied and with
fatal precision. In a moment three dead
desperadoes and the fourth fatally woun
ded attested to the accuracy of Sheriff
Owens' fire. The names of the men
killed are Blevins, Cooper and Roberts
and the wounded man is named Blevins,
a brother of one of the men killed.
For months a reign of terror has exist
ed in the Tonto Basin country of Ari
zona; a dozen men have been killed and
cattle and sheep stealing has become a
regular business. The authorities have
determined to break up the lawless gangs
who are terrorizing the country, and the
quick work'of Sheriff Owens is a good be
ginning. Andy Cooper, the man shot by Sheriff
Owens, died, and with his half-brother
Samuel Blevins, a boy of 14, was buried
on the 5th. Mose B. Roberts is dying.
John Blevins will recover. This makes
four of the Blevins family killed within
two weeks, a father and three sons. The
end is not yet.
At a Coroner's inquest held on the
body of Houston Blevins the jury found
the following verdict:
We, the Coroner's jury, find that the
deceased, Houston Blevins, met his
death from a gunshot wound bv the
hands of C. P. Owen?, Sherffof Apache
county, A. T., and from the evidence
given, we, the jurors, find that the killing
was justifiable, the decased having offer
ed armed resistance to the Sheriff, while
in the lawful discharge ef his duties,
wnue attempting the arrest ot one Andy
Cooper. D. G. Parvey, Coroner.
The entire acts of the Sheriff in the
I justifiable killing of the above party and
t Andy Cooper are endorsed by all the re
spectable and law-abiding citizens of Hol
brook. TERRITORIAL NEWS.

The people of Harshaw want a wagon
road built across the mountains to the
Santa Cruz to connect with the Nogales
road. It would cost about $2,cjo for
the work and the road would open up
numerous mines which are now isolated
from any public highway.
The school tiustees of this district
have shown their good judgment in de
claring in favor of economy by a general
reduction in teachers' salaries. Eighty
dollars for twenty days of six hours
each is a good compensation, and the
teachers all appear to be well satisfied
with the reduction. Star.
Another water storage project has

head of the enterprise.

an Irish friend-that on going home the

with cerebro spinal meningitis, to which
the Irishman responded with much in
dignation: "Why didn't you kill the
Italian son of a gun?" Were it net for
