When the railroad is extended to the .San Pedro,Tucson will lose a large potion of the trade or Tombstone District, but there are some thirty other districts within a radius of 100 miles of Tucson, which are now and must ever remain tributary to it. Some of these districts promise full as well as Tombstone District, and both mills and smelters are now on the way to Tucson, and will be put in place for the reduction of their ores at an earlj day. Tombstone will, no doubt, be come a live camp.with a population of from three to five thousand, In the near future; but as to that new town that dark horse on the San Pedro we never expect to live long enough to see it. There is nothing there to build a town. It is an unhealthy location to begin with: has no agriculture to speak of, and can never be more than a shipping station for the mines, with a prccarous popul ttion of a few hundred. We are told that the railroad is yoins to do wonders for this imaginary town. Nowj we should like for some one to tell us where railroads have built a town. Did the Southern Pacific build a town at; Sumner? Did it build a town at Colton'jof miles today, will probably co tr No! but it destr-ycd two prosperous! Howard, who has 53 miles. Williams (owns already built. A railroad com pany may de-troy towns, and may aid in buildiuir up towns; but it requires the co-operation of an energetic people supplemented l.ynatmal advantages, to build up large towns and cities. Then acain, we ate told that San Pe dro is so near the Sonora line that it will diaw a birgc proportion of the S"nOra trade. Yes. it is alwul fifteen miles nearer the Sonom line than Tuc on, and the only outlet to Sonora is up the San Pdro river via ihe San J. ?e Mountain?, into a section of coun ry that is but little short of a howling wilderness. Th rv are not 2000 people in the entire region of country in So nora reached by this route, and their entire trade w- uld not be equal to 300 Americans. Tucson opens the gate to ihe rich and populous portion of So nora ; her trade onnections are made; ;h' ie are old established lines of com mimical bn between Tucson and Altar, Magdelann, Hermosillo and all impor tant settlements along the Sonora Kiver. None of these, towns or settic- nienis can be reached from a point east of here, and all of this talk about a new town a rival to Tucson is the merest twaddle. There is no f ounda tion for it. We learn that arrangements are! about perfected for the building of three more stamp mills in Pima coun ty. From present indications there will be more slamps and smelters in operation in Pima county by the close of the present year than in all the bal anee of the Territory put together.

Priests contribute one hundred, the remainder to be men, women and children. Many arrests were made to secure a number for vic tims to be selected from. Priests, who have hitherto enjoyed immunity from sacrifice, are quitting Mandlay in great numbers.

Patten, agent of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe and San Francisco railroad company, from which we learn that Mr. Patten was making preparations to go to Guay mas with a force of twenty men to as sist Mr. Mor.ely in locating and build ing the road north. Mr. Morely pass ed through this place on Monday of last week en route for Guaymas to su perintend the construction oftheGuay m"i3 road. Up to this date we have been unable to receive any reliable information as to the route this road will take; but as the managers of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe road are sagacious business men who are working for the best interests of their enterprise, we cannot believe that they will overlook the rk'h harvest to be reaped from the freight and passenger trafic of Arizona. If they should build their road via El Paso, they would lose the entire trade of Arizona. Besides, the route from El Paso to Guaymas is over a very rough and con sequently a very expensive route. The route from Tucson is almost as easy as from Tucson to Yuma. There is not much difference in the distance oi the two routes, but the Ar.zona ro ute would pay, while the Sonora route could not be expected to pay for sever al years to come. Hence, we believe that the " wise mea " of this gre;t trans-continental highway will build their road through Arizona and Tuc son, but for reasons of their own, they are not at present ready to say where they are going to locate their road. Rev. Mr. Dean. As there seems tobe a sort of an im pression that the Rev. Mr. Dean ia only prospecting . the religious field here, and not permanently located, we give the following to place the situa tion in its true light: At the meeting of the San Francisco Presbytery, on April 6, Itev. W. H. Dean, by letter. asked for a dissolution of the pastoral relations existing be tween himself and the church at East Oakland, so as to enable him to accept the charge of the Home Mission work in Tucson, Arizona, His request was granted. The Railway Visitors, Ac. Mention was made in Wednesday's Citizen of the arrival of Gov. Stan ford, President Central Pacific; A. N. Towne, General Superintendent Cen tral Pacific and leased lines (which include the S. P.), and other railway officials. Col. Hewitt, Supt. Southern Division S. P., and Treasurer Smith were of the party. Gen. E. A. Carr, commanding Camp Lowell, took them in carriages to can Xavier and return. Gov. Stanford is decidedly of opinion that the old church should oe saved from decay by the Territory. Like ' most men ot extensive travel and close observation, the Governor regards this old building as a wonder of decided interest. Both Gov. S. and Superintendent Towne are pleased with what they saw and heard in general, and admitted they found rather more business than they expected,and of course they made many inquiries as to how developments! compared with early expectations; th- sources of business for their road east ward ; the prospects, if any, for coal in this section, etc. Gov. S. spoke freely I of extending the road eastward byway of San Antonio, Texas. He was a ht te "elf" on our growth of sage brush, for no well informed Atizonan claims that this Territory ia at all equal to Nevada, Utah, Idaho atid some parts of California, in producing this aromatic shrub, but as a erower of cac tus, mesquite, paio verde and other shrubs and iimber.it stands head; and as a producer of the precious metals as well as some of the inferior ones, Ati zona is soon to excel any other of Un cle Sam's political divisions. The proof of this assertion is already in sight. We can show a variety of ex cellent desert, but California and Utah have superiority in this respect. But in our abundant riches, we are not jealous. We simply and plainly stale a few facts. A FueU We don't like to complain ór find fault with the newspaper:! of San Fran cisco, for their cily is like Job, and the papers are kept bu-y in looking out for the boils Kalh.ch, Kearney, Gann"n, and the ringworm Mrs. Smith but we think they ought to do justice to their territory. They gush over at the least prospect of an im provement on the Comstock, speak with faint praise of Leadville, occa sionally say a good word for Bodie, but leave us most severely out in the cold. It is au undeniable fact that where twenty thousand dollars can be obtained among eastern capitalists for Nevada and Calitornia mines, a hun. idred thousand may be bad with stone U ,he onl' camP ia S0Uth:!1Q Arizona that ha9 ttt Presenll any mi11" inS capacity, ami wuu -id age mills ship away nearly G0,000, or about $240,000 a month. And there n is ore enough in sight in the Conten - tion, Grand Central ana lomostone mines to run a half dozen mills for as many years. We do not brag over our present and prospective wealth, and all we ask of the press of San Francis co, especially the mining papers, the Exchange and Stock Report, is simple justice. Do not attempt any lurtner to smother our light under your huge assessment basket. The Growth of Tucson. While there is no wild speculation in real estate and no excitement over the "future great' city of Tucson, a steady substantial growth is going on. New houses are being built all over tlie city and old ones are being re paired. A large number of our Mexi can fellow citizens are engaged in making adobe bricks, and building material is being secured for future operations. While we do not kmk fr an excited mushroom growth, we have every reason to beli-ve that a steady healthy growth will go on during the Summer, and by the time cool weather be ins our town will have taken ?uch shape as will determine the future business locality, when our leading wholesale merchants will begin the erecii"n of substantial brick houses in every way worthy the metropolis of Arizona. We are fortunate in having many substantial cool headed business men, who do not become excited over every idle story they hear, nor do they become discouraged by the predictions of irresponsible persons who have no interests among us and know little or nothing of our resources. Tucson, without rails, without mines or agri culture has grown to its present pro portions. With railroads, and the in vestment of large capital in our mines, and the opening up of farms and rauches, all of which must necessarily increase every branch of trade, we may safely calculate ou a steady and continuous growth. It is estimated that forty million acres of arid land will be redeemed ial , Colorado by the proposed artesian wells. There Í9 a large amount of land in Arizoua that may be redeemed by artesian wells. But the cost of bor- ing these wells at present is supposed to be so great that the ordinary farmer or ranchmen do not feel able to make the experiment; but let the Govern ment once solve the question by two or three practical tests, and we have hundreds of men who are able and willing to go into the business. There are perhaps from two to three hundred thousand acres of land in Pima coun ty which would produce excellent crops, if water could be had. PATAGONIA DISTRICT. Washington Group of Mine Mount Wa hington Continued Large Showing of Carbonate Ore. Mount Washington, like Carbonate Ilill. is one complete net-work of mines, and mining locations, a very large proportion of which show up ore of a superior quality. Like Car bonate Hill the mines are mostly on the eastern slope ot the mountains, though north of the Washington Camp there are a low succession of moun tains in which are found a number of fine prospects carrying ore of similar character and grade, and are in my opinion, a continuation north of the same leads described in my last, which have their source in Carbonate Hill. The Washington mine at the base of Mount Washington, has some 00 feet of shafts and drifts, exposing an iui- mense deposit of yellow ochre looking ore which is rich in gray carbonites. The old prospect shaft on the Wash ington is all iu ore and a drift or cut some thirty feet west has failed '.0 de fine the width. A vertical shaft was sunk about 200 feet north of the pros pect shaft, to a depih of eighty feet, but as a result fire destroyed the wind lass and burnt out the timbering and ladder; I was unable to examine this shaft. The Washington was one ot the first mines sold in the district, and is' owned by Messrs. Haggin and Tav- is, San Francisco. The Last Chance is evidently a con. tinuatioa of the Belmont lode, so are the Lone Star and Ella, which run over the very highest point of Mount Washington, where it is divided by granite on the west, and lime on the east. The Last Chance has two years assessment work done upon it, and has the appearance of be ing a strong ledge. The Lone Star, being the next location on the Belmont lode, also gives evidence of strength, though as yet but little ore has been found. A tunnel has been run to a depth of thirty feet, in vein matter, The Ella comes next of this lode and like the Lone Star isa strong ledge; there is an open cut on the Ella of seventy-five feet, all in ore. Shaft No 1 is down twenty ftet and shaft No. 2 is about the same depth. A cut at the north end exposes a large body of ore, about 125 feet wide, and averages forty-, two ounces in silver. Passing from the Ella east we come to the Cincinnati, another lead that gives evidence of strength and perma nency. Some 200 tons of ore have been quarried out in leveling up a place for a dump and shaft which gives $120 a ton in silver. The It ck Island lies southwest of the Cincinnati. So far there has been little found in doiDg assessment work on this .ocation. The Chicago lies southeast of the "Washington mine and eump. Though developed to a limited extent a nice lot ot ore is piled up on the dump. ja We will now pass on to the west side! of Washington Camp where we find; the Columbia, which has a shaft downi thirty five lVet; an open cut has been dugout on the surface level, yielding .sixty tons of ore which assays seventy dollars in silver. The surface indica lions are good and we may look for a ood report from the Columbia. The Continental, about half a mile north, has a shaft down thirty -Ave feet showing a large body of free milling ere oí high grade. A contract for a fifty-foot shaft on this mine Í3 now pro gressing The Waco has been developed to a limited extent, showing u;i a three foot ledge of vein matter and a moderate amount of ore which goes from $100 to $S00 per ton. The Mark Twain has a 10 foot shaft which shows up some pretty ore. The Charley Ross claim has an open 'cut of 20 feet, and a shaft down 25 feet, all in ore that will assay $80 to the ton. Messrs Chil Is, Thomas & Co., have a shaft tlown on their claim 25 feet! showing a vein of high grade ore. The Davis miue lias several open cuts, most of which expose tre, and a shaft down some 35 iVet with some fine loo'dnsr ore in the bottom. The Stui3et belongs to the same group as . I . T ' .I .1...

The Redoutt:;bre and El Campo, east of the Washington, both lo-k well. But a limited amount of work has been done on these claims, though they are looked upon as good prop erties. Tlie Key "West has a 10 foot shaft which opens a vein of free milling ore of high grade- The Cachise. There has been con siderable surface work done on this mine, and a tunnel driven some 20 feet in shows a good quality of ore. The Cinniamon mine ha9 its main shaft down 50 feet; shaft No. 2 down 10 feet; shaft No 3 down 10 feet. The nverage assay of the ore from the Cin niamon is $90 per ton. It lies north west of the Washington camp a short distance. The Ohio mino has a 6haft down 41 feet and another 15 feet, a cross-cut of 27 feet and a drift of 70 ieet, a l in go d ore which assays $40 in silvir. Not withstanding the ore of this mine is low grade, it is, owing to the large amount of free smelting ore in sight, looked upon as a valuable-property. and had it not been under bond, could have bcen soId for cash at a C( nsiier- aüie advance over the i rice for whiih it was bonded. The Roanoke, about a mile and a half north of Washington camp, shows ja'three foot ven 0f milling ore which assays from $38 to $112 in silver, The Eureka mine, west of the o'd Mowry mill-site, has a 38 foot shaft and a 50 Coot tunnel, which opens up a large body of low grade ore.
