This mine Is located In the noithcin

seven miles noith of Summit station ou

Mr. McCailerty's assci lion that most of

Ing anything at all about that district, an
absurdity. The Solitaire float and the man
ner in which it occurs Is as jet without a
pir.illeliu mining. The Solitaiio strike
Is situated on the north side of a ery sleep
side hill at tho junction of two abrupt
canons in the North Percha. It is a knoll
of magnuslan limestone and tluor spar
that Is thrown up In tho center of the can
on, while on every side the surrounding
rock is quartz or porphyiy. There are two
very strange things about this Solitaire.
Tho (list is that the nature of tho float and
the place mineral is entirely different.
The second is that the place
MINER VI. 13 1NDIOEX0US,
and as far is I have liarncd, and I have
made consideiablc inquiry, has not been
found anywhere 'else in America. The
float at the Solitaire, although found from
the grassroots to the ledge, on tho side of a
very stetp side hill, is confined to a spaco
of about two acres in extent. It neither
overtops the crest of the hill, nor has it
washed into the creek at its very feet 1
punned and picked tho creek for a mile
north of the Solitaire (down streim), and
failed to find a trace of the iloat. I also
examined the south side of the hill, over
the crest from the Solltahe, on the Moore
boys' property, and not a Iraco of the same
float or place could be found. Tho lloat
at the Solitaira is found ten fut above the
cieek on the side hill, in pieces weighing
from half an ounce to two or three hun
dred pounds. Two chunks of tho latter
Blze had been found when I was thcie. It
Is a sulphide of silver and worth about ten
or eleven dollars a pound. The oro in the
ledge is of the appearance of galena, but
instead of crumbling and presenting a
cleavage face, it peels under the knife, and
I was informed by Mr. Bcntley, tho super,
intendent, that it was yery rich in silvc,
running from one to nine hundred dollars.
In Sawplt gulch there is one of tho richest
mines in tho district, tho property of
Messrs. Burke and Skipps. It is the "Sil
er Queen," and Is an immense deposit ot
gold ochic, hematite iron and black man
ganese. The latter ore is a contact vein
almost fifty feet wide, and' runs, as per
three different assays I had made , ?108 in
sliver. Tho Silver Queen, considering the
vast quantity of ore and its softness and
the easiness with which it can be mined,
is beyond all doubt the richest mine in tho
Percha. The Iron King is another vein
mine, but the vastness of tho vein would
lead ono to suppose it to be a blanket. It
is a very licit mine. Tho ore is a smith
ing ore, decidedly iron, but runs from
thirty to ninety ounces in silver. The
Iron King lias a very considerable amount
of work done ou it and shows up in fine
style as to quality.
THE MINERS DUE KM
and Mountain Chief nro two pretty good
looking prospects, adjoiniug the Iron
King. The former, though, runs the best
in silver; I had both ass tyed. The Miners'
Dream Is a zigzag fissure vein, and is of a
mixed character, alternating from galena
to ochre, iron and sulphurct. Tho next
and most valuable group of mines Is the
Baldwin and its surrounding neighbors,
the Superior, Caledonian, etc. These mines
are being worked bilsKly, and arc, as I was
told, very rich. Certainly tho appearance
of the ore would place it as running about
thirty ounces, but Mr. A. D. Town, super
intendent of the mill at Lake Valley, who
is a part owner in the bullion, told me that
it ran as high as $3,300 per ton. The ore
is a pyrites in limestone, running into var
legated talc as it approaches the contact,
for it and all its neighbors aro contact
veins, between lime and porphyry. The
whole Percha district is one mass of
quarlzite, porphyry and limestone, and
consequently talcy and contact veins pre
dominate. I was brought up in mines, and while
not setting myself up as an expert, yet I
hnvc given the subject considerable study
and 1 glva it as my opinion that the Percha
district is inexhaustible, and will prove to
be one of the richest mining districts in
Trouble at itnsscll City.
Arthur Lain; returned last night lrout a
trip to Russell City. Tho Peabody mine
and smelter, which aro the mainstay of the
camp, are bth closed down, tho men hav
ing struck for their wages. It seems there is
trouble brewing among the directors of the
company, which has resulted In tho men
not being paid for the past three" months.
Their action In striking seems to be per.
fectly justifiable, Inasmuch as tho bullion
shipments for the pail month aggregated
110 tons, valued at from $500 to $700 per
ton, and with such a valuable output it
would seem that there is little excuso for
not pa ing the men. It is the intention of
the strikers, if the money is not forthcom
ing within tho next few days, to attach tho
mine. It is to be sincerely hoped the dif
ficulty may be settUd speedily and work
be resumed on one of the richest proper,
ties in our county.
The Sidney Mill and Mining company
has been incorporated in New York. The
property ndjoini the Grand Central on the
south, and active operations will be begun
of some dimensions owing to the locution
of the smelter being placed thcie. The
Peabody is one of lhe properties owned
by the Russell Gold and Silver Mining
Co, nn Arizona corporation with a Phil
adelphia boaid of dircctois, having their
chief ofllec in Tuc.-on. There aic 100,000
Bharesof the par value of .$30; and the
only capital they had to stait with was
the deeds for these fhe piopcities out of
which the three ongiual locators got ten
per cent each of the stock. Tho formation
of the locations, is entirety lime, a
large bel' of w hich runs, anil has been
traced, fiom a mile below tho town of Rus

nverago width ot two miles. Tho I -bodyislhc
most westeilyof thecompany's
propcities, and nothing further in this
direction has shown up auj thing of value.
From all account', from the incoiporatioij
of the present company to the present
dafe, the stockholder hae not been called
upon for one cent (the actual pielimiriaiy
expenses and fees excluded.) Tho devel
opments made in this mine consist of an
incline shaft (03 degrees), which is now
doftn 110 leet, a winze for a further 55
feet, making n total depth of 105 feet.
Tho shaft shows ore
FROM THE GRASS HOOTS,
and the incline is run across the ledge,
which, judging front the surface ciop
pmgs, is 7o feet wide. At the 50-foot le el
a wiu.o is run noitheily which connects
with the stopes on the 110 foot level. Two
thousand tons have been extracted from
this point. At the bottom of the 103-foot
winze a diilt has been lun 155 feet in a
southcasteily direction on theledge, which
exposes a vast amount of copper ore. One
finds purple or peacock ore, erubescite,
oxide ami sand carbonates, besides the
commoner green and blue caiboiutes. In
many places in this diift a pick stiuck iu
the walls shows it to be nearly pure metal.
One of the pecullaiitics of this mine is
tho high percentage some of the rock goes
In gold, assaying as it docs from 40 to
$8G and up to $140 per ton, making the
average of about $50. Tho average of sil
ver is not so high, perhaps nearly $20 per
ton. Iu addition to the above vvoikings a
crosscut ha3 been tun on the 105-foot level
northeast 03 feet, and southwest 45 feet,
neither of which has struck cither wall.
It may bo said that this mine possesses
a series or succession of copper urns,
which on deptlt may all come together and
make one vast body of ore ; or, should tho
theory of tho copper being deposited fiom
the sutfacc aud tilling up ciacks or caves
in tho limestone prove the case, the whole
mine may "peter out." In tho mau diift
a largo lime "horsu" has been
met with, which sets on the
main and licltcat body of oie,
and as tho bottom of the mine, so far as
can be at ptescnt seen, contains the licltc-t
kind of metal, it may be iufened that the
oro body is a permanent ono and w ill last
down. Tho sand caibonates, whiclt piovu
so valuable, show most strongly at the
lowest depth, although they can bo traced
dowii Iho incline fiom near the surface.
As the management seem to have uiged
the extiaetion of oie in prefeience to mak
ing a mine of their pioperty, there has
been but little dead woik done, and when
rich bodies of oie have been encounteicd
they ha o been 'gone for.' The lesult is that
to-day tho mine docs not look neaily as
well as it ought to; and, taken as a whole,

the difficulties and discoutagemcats met

accomplished so much, and wcic it not
that his whole heart and soul seems de

of the smelter is unfortunately chosen,
and were operations to lecomittcucc it
would possibly bo cither moved to tho
mine itself, or at least to a position IK
miles neater it. Tho water supply is
meager and no ell oris scent to bo made to
encourage a search for more or to develop
that they alieaely possess. Wood is cheap,
costing $4 at the smelter and $5.50 at the
mine. Owing to but a short interview

It is somewhat difficult to form an exact
estimate of the quantity of ore in sight
but it will not be far from the maik If we
put this down at 0,000 tons. What the
mine might prove to be under difTetcnt
ciicumstances is not hard to imagine; but
it must bo said that one of the origiinl lo
cators evidently saw which way tho wind
was blowing when he sold the balance of
his 10,000 shares of stock for somewhat
under one dollar iter share--although we
believe more has since been obtained for
this company's stock. However, the Ion
ger tho present reign of impecuniosily and
uncertainty holds sway the worse for all
who have tho development and prosperity
of tho district at heart. The Ccppcr King

cities. Thcie is n 40 foot incline shaft
sunk, and a quantity of good ore has been
extracted. This is one of tho few mines
that has any great quantity of iron In tho
