work of the caflip can be discerned. There
is no doubt, but among experenced miners
thcie is mote faith iu this district than

So far as could bo gleaned by thoEn
TAnr reporters, the following are the
points of interest regarding the mines of
this district since our last :
t. ji. & M. CO.
Tho work heretofore reported is contin
ued m tho mines of this company. A seven
foot vein of medium grade ore was found
in tho Combination works a few days ago.
Sinking is continued in the West Side and
in Good Enough. The oro body in the
incline has been extended and is looking
very promising. In other respects work is
going along about as usual. The mine is
In excellent condition.
Tho work of extracting ore in largo
quantities has been partially suspended
during tho rainy season, there being an
immense- quantity of ore on the dump at
tho mill, und consequently no need of
wearing out mules on soft muddy roads.
Tho force habitually employed extracting
ore have been on exploration work, and
thrco tine bodies of oro not heietotore
dreamed of, have been discovered. The
COO level was looking remarkably well
yesterday. Tho whole face of the south
drilt shows an unbroken body ot ore, not
of very high grade, etill of such quality
as to givo abundant hope of future im
provement. Tho north drift on the same
level is being driven rapidly toward the
Sulphurct shaft. Occasional strata of very
fair ore have been cut through, but none
of them of sufficient magnitude to war
rant drifting. Second-class oro is still be
ing worked by ten stamps of tho Girard
mill, with very satisfactory results.
Work on this mine had been partially
suspended for thrco days, owing to the
erection of steam hoisting works. Yester
day, however, tho mine started up again iu
full blast, and the steam bolster works to
perfection. Tho mino has now facilities

and better progress is being made. Suffi

management from all anxiety regarding a
sufficiency of ore until tho end of tho rainy
season. Tho stopes are producing as usual,
and the mine generally is in excellent con
Tho usual quantity of ore is being raised
from tho whip shaft, and tho ore body holds
out about as usual. Connection between
the main works aud the whip shaft is daily
expected. Ten stamps of tho Girard mill
are reducing Tranquility ore, and tho mine
is in excellent condition.
This mluo is assuming better propor
tions daily. Yesterday was pay day at the
mine, and the jolly and honest miners were
consequeatly happy. Good progress is
reported in all the works. The ore shipped
to tho Boston mill has given very
flattering returns, and every Indication
proves that a bonanza is certain at no dis
Two shafts are being sunk on this mine,
and very good progress made. No. 1 is
now down forty feet, and No. 2 seventeen
feet. Work was started up briskly about a
week ago; a blacksmith's shop .has been
built, aud considerable lumber for timber
ing the shafts hauled to tho ground.
Twelvo men aro employed. Both shafts
are being run through bodies of high grade
ore, with seemingly staying characteristics.
More than fifty tons of very high grade ore
now lay on the dump aud will be shipped
to the Boston mill next week. The mine
is looking In excellent trim, and work will
be continued right along.
Seventy feet west of the old shaft anew
double-compartineut perpendicular shaft
has been started that will be sunk to a deptli
of S00 feet without interruption, no acci
dents occurring. When down a sufficient
depth, this will bo made tho main working

as to tap it nt proper intervals. Only ono
load of oro ner day is now being shipped
to tho mill, more than 2,000 tons being

will bo put to work on tho new shaft to

The 300 Toot drift is now in 133 feet west;
Sloping the usual aiuouiu from tho upper
level, which goes forward to the mill. The
gradu ot ore may be infeired when it is
staled that 15 tons gave $110 per ton from
the battery samples. This mine is noted
for its rich ore. It ia safe to say that all
the oie jnilled from ttiU mino thus far has
averaged over 580 per ton. No other mine
in tho district can show such results.

Special Correspondence of the Epitaph.
Heiimosillo, August 18, 1882.
The unusual serenity aud quietness that
has pervaded tho political atmosphere in
tills State for some timo back seems to bo
on the point of being rudely broken. Wo
haven't had a political scrimmage of any
consequence in this State since 1870, but
from present appearances we will be in the
throes of revolution ere many weeks more.
Don Carlos Ortiz, the present Governor of
tho State, is a scion of one of the leading
commercial families of the Stale. Ho was
educated abroad, principally in Germany,
and returned to his native heath thoroughly
imbued with aristocratic principles. He
cnteied politics and was elected a member
ot tho Sato Legislature while General
Pesqueru was Governor. Ho was
the Governor's ablest opponent in the
Legislative Assembly and won immense
popularity iu consequence. It is a tradi
tion hole that Pcsquera was tweuty-ouo
years Governor of Sonera and never elect
ed. The people demanded a change and
young Ortiz was tho man singled out to
retire the doughty General to private life.
Tho future Governor placed himself at the
head of a revolutionary party, issued a
pronunciamicnto, and kept in the field un
til the veteran warrior Pesquera was le
tired to private lifo and Luis E. Torres
acknowledged Jovernorof the State. Thus
it will be seen that Ortiz and Torres entered
public lifo as
and continued good friends until about six
months ago. When Torres became Gov
ernor, he used the power of his office to
elect Ortiz a member of the Federal Con
gress, and also promised that the young
Alamos statesman should be iu the lino of
succession to tho Gubernatorial office.
These pledges were religiously maintained.
Louis E. Torres is still a young man, was
educated in the United States, and is by
all means tho most progressive man in
publio life in Sonora. Under his adminis
tration American capital was invited to.
the State; the Sonora Railroad Co. received
a charter, and the commonwealth made
vait strides in the direction of political an e
commeieial progress. He was the idol
of the people, but in accordance with his
pledges retired from offlce.to make room for
Ortiz, then a member of the Federal Con
gress. Ortiz was placed in nomination as
the friend of the administration. Tho op
position candidate was SonorMaytcraines,
a resident of Guayma3 and one of the
wealthiest and most respectable citizens of
the State. Luro Morales, of Urcs, was on
the ticket for Lieutenant Governor. Tho
best people In the Slate supported Mayte
raines, and were it not for the "returning
boards" he would undoubtedly be de
clared elected. The district of Ures voted
almost solidly lor the opposition candidate,
but the vole was thrown out on a techni
cality, and Ortiz was declared elected.
Much dissatislactien prevailed, aud the
EMBERS OF REVOLUTION
have been smouldering in tho State ever
since. Governor Ortiz professed to be a
great friend of foreigners and an ardent
promoter ot enterprises conducted under
the auspices of American capital, but he was
not in office more than a few months when
lie began to assail American enterprises
with petty persecutions. The Sonora Bail
load Company and Its employees became
an especial target for bis malice, and
through this means tho first break witli
Torres was engendered. Whilo the latter
gentleman was Governor, a party of Boston
capitalists were induced to commence the
construction of a railroad from Guaymas
to a point in the United States, the Gov
ernor promising that lie should become
sponsor tor the protection of their enter
prise. The ex-Governor accordingly re
monstrated with Ortiz when his persecu
tions became unbearable and thus they
quarreled. General Catbo, a nephew of
Geaeral Trevino, late Secietary of War,
was stationed in Sonora, and took tho Tor
res side of tho dispute. A wordy warfare
ensued between himself and Ortiz. Tho
columns of tho public press were used to
defame eaeli other, when, to tho as
tonishment ot all, tho General and
cx-Govcruor Torres sailed from Guay
mas together, without previous
warning, and iu due timo arrived at the
City of Mexico. What transphed at the
Federal capital I cannot say, but the im
pression is preyalent that the general gov
ernment piomised to aid-a movement for
tho overthrow of Ortiz. In this contest, as
in many others, politics make strange bed
fellows. Tones and Mayteraincs, former
ardent enemies, are now warm friends,
while Ortiz and the venerable Pesquera,
either of whom would consider It a patri
otic act to have the other's jugular vein
severed a year &o, now swear by each
other. Ygnacio Pesquera is at present a
resident of Ures, and though advanced iu
years and cussedness has much inlluencc
still in northern Sonora. By tho sale of
mining properly to American capitalists ho
lias become rich and dignified, and secina
to bo possessed of tho belief that the intro
duction of railroads will eventually lead to
the flaunting of the
STAltS AND STllII'ES
over the state capital at Hormosillo. Ortiz
professes to believe the same thing, while
Torres, Carbo and Mayteraincs assert that
railroad connection with the United States
would be the mainspring to (he future
prosperity of Sonora. These are tho issues
on which the contest is being waged, and
it is hardly necessary to state that tho
American residents are almost unanimous
in favor of the Torres-Mayteraines faction.
It is hardly possible that a contest can bo
avoided. The latest accounts received
state that Carbo and Torres are expected at
Guaymas daily with a force of Federal
troops. General Reyes, who is also a re
liable opponent of Ortiz, is camped with a
force ot 1500 men about 100 miles east ot
Ilermoslllo. and is permitting the Apaches
to raise hell in the Sauhripa district rather
than miss a chance to strike Ortiz when
opportunity ofiers. In the meantime Ortiz
has made active
ntlil'AltATIONB FOlt THE FKAY,
and will not give up without a bloody
struggle. Ho has organized militia com
panies in every hamlet in the Stale, and
lias quite a liltle army in training at uis
home iu Alamos, in the southeastern por
tion of the State. It is supposed that w hen
hostilities break out Ortiz will make
an eU'ort to be revenged ou the
Railroad Company aud the lines and prop,
crty of the corporation will suffer. In this
event tho Amcrtcan residents, as well as
tho Tones Maytoraines faction hope for
intervention on the part of Uncle Sam.
That is the state of affairs at present. Much
disquietude prevails, American capitalists
are uneasy, the mines are shutting down,
the railroad officials disheartened, and you
may expect hell popping pretty lively- at
any moment. GiUMto.

thURlahtic ItScctingM S.aat Saturday.
Iu accordance with tho mandate of tho
Democratic County Committee, the Demo
cratic voters of this city assembled at the
several' wauls last Saturday and registered
themselves i.s adherents of the Democratic
pally. Cioakers who were inclined to
contest the popularity of the mandate
issued at the recent meeting of the County
Legislature of the Democracy were
somewhat taken back by tho large
gatherings that assembled at the different
places of meeting. As Daniel O'Connell
used to say, "this is a gicat day for Ire
land." So might tho Epitaph say, "this is
a groat day for Democracy." Merchants
fiom their desks, mechanics from their
benches, lawyers from their offices, miners
trom their picks, laborers from their
shovels, teamsters from their carts
assembled, to scroll their names
in the grand Democratic registration. As
in all representative bodies there was a
lively contest in some of the wards, but all
arguments were for opinion sake, nud all
in the interest of what was supposed the
strengthening or Democracy. It was a
perfectly goodualured contest. Of course
it was understood that every man who
signed the rolls pledged himself to vote
the Democratic ticket withou' blotch or
blemish. As in all representative contests,
a difference of opinion prevailed, but
when it came to what was believed the
true interests of Democracy, all were un
animous. The best of good feeling pre
vailed throughout, and those who
were inclined to believe that the
warm hearts and sturdy souls of Tomb
stone were not Democratic had better have
been present. Everything passed off as
pleasantly as a summer dream ; men of all
shades of opinion wer6 in attendance;
warm partisans of different candidates
struggled for their favorites, and cither in
tne joy of victory or philosophy of dejeat,
were ever ready to announce themselves
Democrats, first, last and all tho time. In
that sterling Democrat and representative
citizen Judge Peel, called tho meeting to
order and said that he presumed everybody
present was a Democrat. He said the ob
ject ot the meeting was to enroll the Demo
crats of the first ward in a band of fellow
ship in support of good government, and
consequently in favor of tho nomi
ii3cs of the Democratic party at the
ensuing election. Judge Peel then nom
inated Judge A. J. Feltcr for temporary
chairman. The nomination was warmly
seconded, and Judge Feltcr was unaui-
mously elected. Nathan Lee was chosen
secretary, una on motion a recess ot nttecn
minutes was taken to give those present a
chance to sign the roll.
At the expiration of fifteen minutes the

ViRorit Powder is no infringement of tho Giant Powder patents, but on the contrary "in no
respect within their contemplation." It is lndicrons as well as libelous therefore to term this
powder an adulteration or Imitation of one scientifically inferior.
Experience and use have proved for tho Visorit .Powder:
1st That it Is a safer powder for transporting and handling than thr other Nlto-Ulvcerin
Powders heretofore made
2d That with an equal explosive power It is very free from hurtful fumes.
3d That it is much less affected by heat cold or moisture.
4th That it can be tightly tamped without risk of explosion.
Risks of Accidents Will Be Very Greatly Lessened,
If not altogether overcome, by a general nse of this po tvder in the mines. " Wo have yet to hear ol a
single human blng who has been injured by it."
f& Tho Vigorit Powder Company manufacture on tho most scientific principles three grades ol
powder, known as Nos. 1, 2 and 3 respectively, designed lor the different classes of blasting, and war
