STEINS PEAK DISTRICT.
Its Mining Properties Are Eapidly
Coming to The Front.
The Volcano mine which is always
mentioned as the first mine in the Stein
Peak district has made some very re
markable developments during the past
two weeks. The ledge or vein of this
district run north and south, and the
owners of this property have been run
ning a drift south from the main shaft for
several weeks and the ledge is gradu
ally growing wider and a few days since
they had drifted a distance of one hun
dred and seventy feet. The ledge show
ed the remarkable width of fourteen eet,
all good paying ore, ore in which hoin
silver is lavishly displayed This com
pany are now working fourteen men and
are shipping large quantities of rich ore
to Socorro for reduction. A party of St,
Louis Capatalists recently wanted to ob
tain a bond for $150,000 on this property
but this the owners promptly refused. A
party of California speculators are at
present looking over this district and the
.chances are that they will invest largely
in the camp. The Martha mine is an
extention of the Volcano, and there has
been considerable development made on
this property. The mine is looking well
and the owners of this claim are working
it quite extensively and the property
grows better and more promising each
THE JOHN SMITH
is one of the most promising prospects in
the district. The character of the ore in
this mine is very similar to that of the
Volcano. There is a shalt 75 feet in
depth on this claim all in ore. A large
number of assays taken from the ledge at
a depth of 75 feet gave a return of an
avenge of $163 per ton. The ledge at
the bottom of the shaft is nearly six feet
and horn silver can be found in almost
every piece. Messrs Williams, Harwood
Keating and Dolan, the owners of the
property are doing considerable work on
the claim. They are making a thorough
test of the virtue of the mine all of them
being practical miners. One hundred
and twenty-five feet south of the main
shaft thtyuncovered a ledge four and
one half feet in width, the ore of which is
thoroughly impregnated with horn silver,
The fortunate owners of this promising
claim are all deserving men and the
Epitaph rejVices at their sucess in the

about 3000 feet from the Volcano has
been idle for some time owing to the fact
of the wounding of Mr. Wyatt one of the
owners of the property. It shows a
ledge two feet in width carrying free gold
and is verv rich in silver, ine aeptn
of this shaft is sixty eight feet and it is
a very promising prospect. This is prob
ably the best . '

in the district as it is easily worked and
the ore is very rich in gold. Mr. Wyatt
is at pressnt rapidly recovering from his
wounds and work will be at once resum
ed. The greatest sirike that has yet
been made in this district was made by
James Coyle a few days since in a. pros
pect owned by himself and two compan
ions. The mine is situated about one
and one-half miles north.from the John
Smith, and the strike is wonderful both
in extent and richness. The rock fairly
glistens with free gold and assays $1200
in gold and $320 per ton in silver. Coyle
is a painstaking miner and not at all ex
cited about his rich find but no man
knows better than himself, what a mar
velous showing there is in the prospect.
Jim is working like a beaver on his new
bonanza and it is thought that it will
prove a fortune to all of the owners. We
are glad to hear of Mr. Coyle's good for
tune as he is in every way worthy of its
enjoyments. Ths property is known as
the Way Up and it is generally conceed
ed that the mine is a way up one. The
Pocohonlas is also a very promising prop
erty an- Is developing into a oonanza of
no mean order.
ThE BEQJ MINE
have also recently made a very rich strike
the new ledge encountered is two feet i
width and very rich in silver. The mine
is under the management of M. L. Cal
houn of Tombstone who has in his em
ploy fifteen men they are making large
shipments of ore to the Socorro Smelter
and the returns thus far hare been very
satisfactory. All in all the Stein Peak
mining district bids fair to be the most
successful mining country in the south
west. The quatity of the ore is such that
it can be worked successfuly by the pios
pector it being in fact a good camp for
the poor man. The work of development
goes steadily and successfully on. Every
person owiing a claim is dilligently work
ing to make it marketable. The mines
in the district at present employ upwards
of one hundred men, and there is scarce
ly a man in camp who has not abid
ing faith in the future of the District.
TOMBSTONE ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL
COPPER PRODUCTION TOR 1886-
The Splendid Stowing of Lake Superior
The Epitaph published a report of
the output of copper for 1886, but have
now that cfthe agent of the United States
The product of the year, as determined
by him, was 156,373,421 pounds of
domestic copper, produced as follows:
Lake Superior, 79,728,838; Arizona,
15.657,035; Montana- 57,611,622; New
Mexico, 558,385; California-, 432,210;
Colorado, 409,306; Utah, 300,000; Nev
ada, 50,000; Maine, New Hampshire and
Vermont, 315,719; Southern States, 29,
811; lead deliveries, etc.. 1,282.496
pounds. Total domestic copper, 1 56,373,
421 pounds; from imported pyrites and
ores, 4,500; total, including copper from
imported pyrites, 160,875,621 pounds.
No less than 136,820,943 pounds were
turned out by American refining works,
including a small quantity of blister ex
ported as .such, and small amounts of
unrefined copper going directly to con
sumers. Deducting from this the ex
ports, 19,504,087 pounds, there remain
over 117,020,003 pounds available for
home consumption, of which about 64,
oc 3,000 pounds came from Lake Supe
rior, and the remainder, 53,020,030
pounds, from other sources.
The important features of the copper
trade of the United States in 1 886 have
been the continued increase of the out
put of Lake Superior, and the falling off
of Arizona and Montana; the sharp de
cline in the quantities exported, and,
above all, which sought the more remu
nerative home market. Coupled with
this tendency to overlook the home
trade in the face of a declining output, is
the important fact that the quantity of
miscellaneous grades has improved, and
that consumers have learned to better
utilize relatively lower grades of copper.
While the local supply has increased,
the consumption in this country has, on
the other hand, developed a gain in the
most satisfactory manner.
A Narrow Ikcapo.
A prominent Tombstone Attorney went
a visiting a few days since and availiing
himself of the first opening in the build
ing, deliberately crawled through the
transom. The premises were occupied
by a two fisted miner who properly re
sented this lofty intrusion and made has
ty preparations to evict the legal intruder
through the chimney. But hapily for the
follower of Blackstone alowley preacher
of the gospel was an accomplice who
prayed in language strong for the diliver
ance of his hasty imprudent friend, and
an Epitaph reporter was informed that
it required a heap of praying to keep the
miner from working the pair up into
