WEEKLY MINING REVIEW.
The week !ia been quite devoid of sen
sations m tho mining world, the new
strikes developing nothing noteworthy its
fur a? pioscciitcd The camp In general
is doing better than cur before, nnd tho
output is. Mfiidily increasing. One "f the
ploneeis of the camp, :i caiclul and con -seivatlvo
business nnu, informed tho Epi
taph miner jestenlay, that never before
was m much uclunl mining being clone
as at present. Aecotding to our inform
ant thrro aio from twclvo to twenty more
mines being workul at present than at any
period iu the hlstoiy or tho camp. It
might bo said with cqun) truth arid justice
that mi fur as developed tho mines me in
excellent condition. It is sale to shv that
not It s.s thuu fifty mines and prospects are
being worked now within a ladius
of two miles aud a half irom
the EriTAi'ii office. There are reports of
new strikes dally, and the Quality of the
mineral in tho producing mines groves
better as depth is attained. Another fine
body of ore was exposed in the Contention
during the week, while both the Grand
Central and Contention rejoice in a new
srfrlace discovery near tho boundary lines
of both mines. Tho western portion of
tho district is coming out strong. The
Randolph, Win&Vld and Blue Jacket are
astonishing even their owners. A town Is
being laid out in the vicinity of the Win
field, and a store and saloon established.
The Littlo Devil, located about half way
between tho Blue Jacket and the Stone
wall, is n marvel, large bodies of ore assaj-.
ing over a thousand dollars, being almost
daily opened up. Under such circum
stances, it is no wonder that raining men
are buoyant, and tho owners of prospects
arc encouraged to go to work and develop.
As far as could bo gleaned, the following
arc the latest points of interest connected
with our great industry:
Extensive prospecting is being carried
on in tho lower levels with very enrourag
ing results. An upraise is being extended
from the west drift on the 600 level to the
surface, for purposes of ventilation. A
nice ore stopo has been opened up on the
120 level. More than the usual quantity
of ore is being extracted and the mine
is iu excellent condition. The management
contemplate the erection of stea.n hoist
ing works at no distant day, the only delay
being occasioned in discovering what kind
of machinery is most applicable. Mr.
Hearst is tho owner of first class hoisting
machiociy at Harshaw, and it is rnoic than
probable that it will bo removed hither.
South drift on the 100 level 33 feet in
length; facenf drift in ledge matter; for.
matlon softer, except on cast side a portion
in granite, which is giving out. Ledge
matter giving fair assays. Will start a
crosscut when drift is run several feet more
and resume siuking with a double lorce of
meu. Fiom all appearances good ore will
be met with in ciosscut. Everything nbout
tho mine in first-cl.tss working order.
The new double compartment working
shaft is now down twentj -three
feet. The rock is very hard
and in consequence orogrcss i3 mcessaiily
slow. Sloping is continued on the 100
level, old works, nnd one load of ore daily
extracted. The mill has becu shut down
for the past few days, to make neces
sary repairs on the furnace. It will be
ready in a few days, and the mill will
again start up.
Shaft No. 1 is now down sixty feet, and
No. 2 has attained a depth of forty feet.
Both shafts ale in high grade with ore every
prospect of being in the midst of a large
body.JThls is without doubt the most promis
ing properly in that portion of thedistrict,
and unless the most experienced miners In
the camp are deceived, will be one of the
great producing mines ere another year.
A shell was started on tho lower ledge
yesterday. Ono hundred tons of ore
will bo shipped to tho Boston mill, during
tho ensuing week, a contract being nlrcady
let to haul the ore at the rate of five dol
lars per ton. About seventy-five tons of
high grade ore now rests on the dump.
The Littlo Devil is attracting a great
deal of attention. After separating and
sacking all the first class ore, the remain
der of the dump was carefully assayed,
yielding a result of $170771 per ton. Two
samples of the first class ore yielded an
average result of $810.21 per ton. This ore
was mostly taken from tho face of the
crosscut at the bottom of the shaft, and un
til that work is finished, crosscutting will
not be resumed. When the shaft is in or
der two oblique drills will bo started, cast
and west, verging toward the footwall. By
this mode of development, the rock will
break easier, and time bo saved. This is
one of the most important tdrikes ever
made in the camp.
The main shaft of this promising claim
is now down a little over CO feet, and dis
plays eighteen inches of high grado ore at
the bottom. lhe ore body Is continually
expanding as depth is attained, and also
improving in quality. The ground is very
fair for working purposes, and good pro
gress is beinc made. The drift is now in
about thirty feet, and looks very promising.
The incline shaft has now attained a
depth of 110 feet, and shows up a continu
ous body of medium quality ore. Shaft
No. 2 is down about 20 feet, in some very
fine ledge matter, from which very flatter
ing assays have been obtained. The mine
in general never looked belter, and w ith
further judicious development there is
not . doubt but that it will take a
prominent place nuiong the mines of tho
Sinking on the main shaft is continued,
and the drill from the 100 level is being
pushed ahead vigorously. A blower is be
ing placed in position to forco lrcsh air into

Nothing worthy of note has occurred
here during the pat week. The usual
quantity of oio is being extracted, princi
pally between the first and third levels.
The bullion output for last monih amounts
to about $23,000. The management have
under consideration the removal of the
mill from the San Pedro to the mine, but
have been unable to make satisfactory
terms with the Huachuca Water Com
pany so far.
Git AND CENTIIAL.
Nolhing has been struck on tho 000 as
yet, thoutrh the indications of an ore body
neartne face of the crosscut are excellent.
The ground is very haid, and progress is
consequently slow. A crosscut ha? been
started from the 200 level to investigate
tho new find on the boundary line between
tho Grand Central and Contention. The
stopes all through tho inino nro looking
good, and yielding f'o usual quantity of
oie. A force of men have been put to
work on the Naumkcag shaft, and a cross
cut has been started from the old works to
connect. The bullion output for the
month of August amounted to $105,000.
Bight on tho heels of the big strike in
the 000 level comes a lepoit of the discov
ery of an extensivo body of very high grade
ore in the 200 level. This is not authenti
cated from official sources, but has como
to us in such a way that there is hardly a
doubt of Us Iruth. While excavating for
water pipes near the boundary line, a few
days ago, Superintendent Gage of the
Grand Central discovered something that
looked extremely like oie. On consulta
tion with Mr. Leach, a coupleof men were
put to work to sink a little deeper, and to
their astonishment a fine body of rich ore,
heavily laden with horn silver, was dis
covered almost at the grass roots. The
find was discovered to be in Contention
ground, and was accordingly abandoned
by the Grand Central folks, and some Con
tention lniucis put to work there.
Things at this mine are running along
as usual. There has been nothing of more
than usual importance ttanspiied during
the past week. The ore body is holding
out well, the drifts and crosscuts pushed
forward r.ipldly, and even-thing looking
well. Supeiintendent Cavill was busily
engaged making out his monthly report
yesterday. He is decidely of the opinion
that all that Is necessary to make the Em

The Troops C'rl'IciMed The Indian
Lieutenant Glass, who commanded the
detm hinent of troops sent out from Fort
Huachuca, on the news of the Indian de
ptt'd.itions in the Santa Cruz valley, is
being liecly criticised by the settlers in
Hint locality. A correspondent of the Star,
writing from Isancton, near the ftonticr, is
decidedly severe, not only on the officer in
comm.tud, but on the tioops whom he
commanded, 'lhe tioops, ufter their re
turn iu Huachuca, reported no Indians to
be found nnd asserted that the deaths re
ported were simply lavings of a wild lm
magmution. The conespondent referred
I will stale as it matter of fact that can
he corroberated by old and tcsponsible set'
tiers, that the deaths you mention as un
certain are unfortunately true, and I know
ol otlieis that will soon bo repoited. The
Indians threw up impromptu breastworks
of stone witnin one half mile of my ranch,
(the Mosquito) closely followed by Mexi
can sc Idlers and armed citizens from Santa
Cruz and La Noria, who stopped between
my ranch and the fortifications, for the
inevitable cigaiclte and to consult regard
ing further puisuit, when the Indians ap
peared, inviting them to advanco. They
preferred to ieticat loosing two horses, one
liflc, two hats and other propeity .being the
etlect of an uuexpectud volley from the
hostile. Then upon the scene appeared
the U. S. troops, commanded by one
"Glass". Tho true state of affairs were
communicated to the commandant, who
without reconnoitre boldly asserted that
there was no Indians, nor had there beeil
in bis opinion. F. S. Lambeison and F.
Walts, who had been lately pursued and
reached their adobe building by mere
chance, could uot get Glass to the late
scene. No, he would detail five scouts to
inspect and report. Who returned in an
hiur, repotting no Indians, no trail
etc. In the meantime the private sol
d ers. tecoming exasporated at the delay
knowing there were Indians, cursed and
swore at the action of their gallant com
mander Glass. They wanted a little skir
mlsr.,butno. They then repaired to my
milk house, camped and appropri
ated about one hundred and fifty
pounds of butter. The scouts under his
command betook themselves to m field
planted with corn, melons etc. A Mexi
can in my employ said what they could
not eat they destroyed, even to the green
melons no larger than your fist. The gal
lant captain offered to repair the damages
by paying me $30, which being about one
quarter of tho loss, was very properly
rclused. .My loss ot butter was acknowl
edged by Glaks to Lamberson and Watts,
but Glass made no further acknowledg
ments. He could have followed close
upon the hostile but his courage was not
up to a puisulng heat. Evidently Hua
chuci Fortand its surroundings ate mote
suited to the taster of this gallant soldier
than the Indian trails through our rugged
mountains, wheie danger is met boldly by
tho eettlerand invaded by the coward.
Theie are many sufferers in tho Santa
Cruz Valley. I have lost all I had, even
to the clothes of my wife and self. Our
country rewards libeially hard labor, so
we do not despair; but give us men in
our army and not figureheads.

Tln Tribulations of American 31 intiis
Companies, In Nonorn-r..oililtnnt
ChnrseH nnd Petty PiriTutlniiH.
It is to be hoped that, as political econo
my gets to bo understood belter, and civil,
ization generally advances, those idles of
barbarism citbioin houses will become a
thing of the past All custom houses are
essentially the gtossest nuisances, but
some aio worse than others. Theie is hard
ly a doubt but tho Mexican custom ltouse
is about the worst and most unccttain in
stitution of the kind to bo found in any
civilized country. In the first place, the
duties demanded by tbo Government are
exorbitant, next the regulations for its col
lection are full of tigid technicalities, and
thirdly, the officers chosen to colbctihe
unholy tax ate Invariably cither ignorant
or cotrupt, oi both. If the statement of
Americans doing business in Sonora is
correct, and we have uo wnn to doubt it,
the custom house at San Pedro Is rich in
all tho attributes above described. The
officials are exacting iu the cxtieme.cud
as full of technicalities as a Tombs Courl
lawyer. The Santa Maria Mining Com
pany has becu arbitrarily bilked out of
of several thousand dollars in fines and il
legal confiscations. This compauy has
been in the habil of puichasing goods al
San Frauuisco, and submitting either the
invoice or the goods to the Mexican consul
at that port, to whom all duties were paid
and a full release given, with the necessary
papers for presentation to the customs olli
cer at San Pedro. This document was on
all occasions ptescntcd to the offici lis
while the goods were still ou this side ol
the line. Frequently it was declared O. K.
until the goods wero well in on Mexican
soil, when some technical error would he
discovered, and a fine imposed. On other
occasions the papers would be declared
incomplete at a glance. The agent of the
company would remonstrate, stale that he
had paid the consul the legal demands,
besides heavy fees for his trouble, but
there was no release, the money should be
put up or the goods would be confiscated.
Not long since the company was fined ou
a tcchnicbality that was teally the fault of
the officers, and although the Mcx.can
minister at Washington was appealed to,
there has been no redress as yet. A few
weeks ago A. W. Miller, of the San Augus
tine Mining Company, started from this
city with a load of goods. He submitted
the articles at the Custom House, paid his
duly and was duly passed. A short dis
tance beyond Arispo the liver was
swolen and the mules were unable to haul
the load. He secured some burros, and
succeeded in having that which Tas pti
ishablc packed to Sinoquipo, and tent
some more mules back to where the wag.
on was mired to help to extricate it. A
man named Fiisbie diove the mules. A
little exertion on the part of the animal-'
got the wagon started all light. Soon af
ter the driver was appealed to by a man
who was vainly tning to drive a pack
burro to carry the load a littlo disiante
for him as his biuro was plnycd out. The
driver consented. Thu load was transfer
red from the burro to the wagon and the
tired animal abandoned. A few hours af
terwards a couple of Custom House guards
rode up and asked to ?ctrch the wagoi.
The goods belonging to the strange man,
that had only been transferred to the wi g
on a few houis before, wero deelaud c n
traband and the whole outfit, including
mules and wagon, weie oideied to be
taken to San Pedro. Frlsbie, the drivei,
was roughly handled, notwithstanding the
fact that the pedlcr, for such he proved to
be, admitted that the goods were his, and
that the driver was guiltless of any wrong
doing. There was a hoisting machine in
the wagon that the company were much in
need ot, but arguments were in vain. The
outfit was taken to San Pedro, ex
cept the whim which was left tin
der seI with the district judge
at AriBpc. The driver had no idea that the
goods he took on were contraband, suppos
ing that they were purchased at Arispe,
The end ot the matter was that Mr. Miller
had to put up in the neighborhood of $500
before he could get a release of his prop
erty. These are only instances of the out
rages and annoyances to winch foreigners
are subjtcted by the customs officers.
When it is remembered tint very neaily
every article takon into the country by the
American companies Is used In the devel
opment ot the country's resources, the
equity of tho case is made apparent

In reply to Iho article published in the
Ei'iTAni Tuesday morning, about the row
at Ilamsey's Canyon, ptrmit mo to stale
that I consider the so-called bad man a
gentleman, as he habitually pa) s his hills
and does not steal from his fellow cititn-,
something I cannot say for W. H.Ilaimc).
He has stole wood from John Conners.and
I can prove it. I do not want to defend
any man who goes biawling nnd filibuster
ing, but I think that a little wild foolish
ness, doue under lhe lnlluence of liquor, is
not by any int mis as culpable .'s nibbing
one's neighbors. W. J Mason,

Vlgoilt PoAdir Is no Infringement of the Giant Powder patentr, but on the contrary "in no
respect nithln ikolr contemplation." It Is ludicrous as well as libelous tneiefore to term this
powder an adulterullou or imitation of one scientifically Inferior.
J'.xpprJeiice nnd use have proved for the Visorit Powder:
1st That It Is a safer powder tor transporting and handling than tht other Nlto-Glrceria
Powders heretofore made
Al That with an equal explosive power it Is very free from hurtiul fume.
3d That ills much less aflccted by heat cold or moisture.
4th 1 hat It can be tiguly tamped without risk of explosion. .
Risks of Accidents Will Be Very Greatly Lessened,
If not nltoccter ourcome, by a general use of thU pondtr In the mines. "We have yet to hear ol s
