"No wonder you liave such bad
luck with some of j'our coal mines,"
teervid the gentleman from Xvu
ScotiastbcqutttteUe sutousting their
hins around a broker's coal lire.
Ah, you ought to have such men hs
our ola manager of the lied House
mine. He'd make the poorest mine
in this country pay a bandeomu divi
dend in less than a year."
"How?" asked the broker.
By schrewd management. Do any
of you know how many times a wire
rope will stand the strain of the cage"
"No."
" Well, he hnd it all figured down
to a dot and he never replaced it unt:l
the time before it was to break. He'd
make a rope last three months longer
than any other manager.and then he'd
work it on to the farmers for clothe
lines. Do any ot you remember our
fire-damp esplosion in '59? "
"No."
" Probably read of it at the time
but liave lorgotten it. Well, I was
superintendent of the lied House then
and 1 was driving down to tbc min
one day wueu 1 met Andy, lie was
mounted on a mule and coming on the
gallop. As lie came up I asked him
what had happened."
" A great explosion seventy-nin
done lor liurry on! ' be replied, as
he tried to get past me.
"Anything else?" asked I.
"Yes, sir: the mine is on fire! "
"Then wc are in lor a loss of at least
$10,000."
" 1 hope not," says he, as he got
readv to go on, "as soon as 1 lieiuu
the explosion I saddled the mule
Then I ordered up the cage, and when
I found it empty I opened the sluice
and let the big creek tumble riglit into
the shaft. TLc lire will be out befoi
3'ou get there ! "
'And the miners? "
"They arc gone for sure, sir. "V
shall be to some little expense, and to
onset it 1 in riding up to Brownstoun
as hard as 1 cau go to buy up every
cotlin in town and bold em lor a rise
Good bye, sir gelanir, j-ou critter!
" That was the kind of man our old
manager was, gentlemen, ami wc
never made an annual dividend of less
than IK) per cent."
San Xnvter.
Col. C. P. Sjkes, Superintendent o
the San Xavier Mining and Smelting
Company, left for San Francisco
.Monday on business connected with
tire mine. The Colonel called at the
Citizkn ofiice Monday and left as beau
tiful a cabinet specimen of the San
Xavier ore as we have ever seen. It
is brilliaut in all the colors of the rain
txw, and, what is heller, is rich in
copper, lead and silver It is taken
from thetleepcst workings of the mine
and h in i-ucli quantity that on rn
day a single blast threw down ten tons
of it.
There wa shipped from this city on
Friday another carload of lead bullion
from the San Xavier, and in a day or
two a carload of copper malt will lie
s-nt inside for refinement. Iu addi
tion Col. Svkes has sent a ton of Lit
tie May ore to San Francisco to have
it worked with a view to ascertaining
the Ik-'.-i method of reducing it. The
Little 2Iay, it will be remembered, is
the claim the discovery of which
created such a sensation a few months
ago at San Xavier. It is undoubtedly
a remarkable property, and its devel
opment will lie watched with much
interest.
Alortlnii ol Nitro Glycerine.
A correspondent of the Plienix Her
ald, writing from Tip Top, December
2, says: " The following is a nut for
scientists to crack: On the night of
November 4, John .Morton, a miner
working on the 5500-foot level of thi
I in l oii. was suddenly startled ty a
sharp report occurring a few feet in
his rear, upon investigation found his
wooden tampmc stick shattered to a
thousand pieces. There being no cup
or powder near, lhe only reasonable
explanation and one generally con
curred in bv miners cognizant; of the
lacts is that the explosion was caucd
bv a rock falling on the tampiug bar,
which was an old one and had been
ihoroughlv saturated with glycerine
Mav not this explain the cause of
many premature explosions occurring
while holes arc being tamped, and
would H not be wise to substitute
something else than wood for that pur
!?'' To ICci-p LniiipCIilninoyM from Crnck
i"r. The following receipt for keeping
lamp chimneys from cracking is taken
Irotn the Diamond, a Liepzig journal
devoted to the glass interest: Place
jour tumblers, chimneys or visssels
which you desire to keep from crack
ing, in a pot filled with cold water,
add a little cooking salt, allow the
mixture to boil well over a fire, and
then cool slowly. Glass treated in
this way is said not to crack even if
exposed to very sudden changes of
temperature. Chimneys arc said to
lecome very durable by this process,
which may also he extended to crock-en-,
stoneware, porcelain, etc. The
process is simply one of annealing,
and the slower the process, cspecialb'
the cooling portion of it, the more ef
fective will be the work.
Ilnizll.
Unt7.il covers nearly half the surface
of South America, and yet its popula
tion is less than 12,000,000. Of these
over 1,000,000 are slaves and 2,000,000
are wild aborigines. IJy a law of 1S71
no more slaves are to lie born iu that
country, so that this curse will in time
disappear. Uuder the enlightened
rule of Hmperor Dom Pedro all re
ligions are tolerated. Eighteen years
ago the first Protestant church was or
iranized in Hio Janeiro, and since
that time churches have been cstah
lulled at ban 1'aulo, at Urntas aud a
few other places, having in all oyer 1000
members. The whole county is open
and "lily needs lhe right men, and
women also, to go in and sosv and
reap.
Death of 31 r. MoKey.
In another column will be found the
announcement of the death of Mr.
Alexander McKey, who died in this
city Sunday. Mr. IcKey was born
in Kentucky in 1S87. Ho was a pio
neer of California, having come to the
Coast in 1S49. He was widely known
in Arizona, having come to the Terri
tory ni the time of the gold excitement
at La Paz. 11 r McKey was an uncle
of Mr. It. F. Kirkland, Jtccorder-elect
of Maricopa county, and was promi
nently identified with the mining in
dustry of the Territory. He was
greatly esteemed by all who know
him, and his death will be a source of
keeu sorrow to his manv friends.
The present business of the Tucson
postofllce is very much larger than at
an time previous, and a statement of
the amount of mail matter received
and dispatched would astonish some
of our sister cities who have been
boasting of their large postal business.
Itallroatl 'otes.
The new staiion ol Deming, where
lhe Atchison rad will make connec- 1
tion with the Southern Pacific, is 2.90
miles from Tucson. The road will be )
opened to t"at poiut lor passengers
and freig' ts on "Wednesday. The
fare from Tucson U .?28.
The track of ths Southern Pacific is
now laid to a point 19 miles from
Deminsr, or 240 miles from Tucson.
The ticket sales at the Tucson depot
on Friday and Saturday nights
amounted t $1400. When il is slated
that this amount includes only the lo
cal travel, it will be seen that the
Tucson business isof great importance.
The furniture for the new bunk
house for the train men has not yet ar
rived, consequently it is as yet unoc
cupied. The old adobe building near Mr.
Cash's house will shortl' be rebuilt,
with a large double roof and other
improvements for comfort, and will
be Used as a residence for gome of the
railway employes.
Mr. Leary and a force of men are
engaged in building an ice-house near
the depot, to have a capacity of 100
tons. The ice will be brought from a
point on the Central Pacific Itailroad
in the Sierras.
The foundation for the new ware
house of L. Zeckendorf & Co. is near
ly completed. It is being built of
stone, and the building, which is to
be 150x50 feet, will be a most sub
stantial affair when completed.
A depot. building has been ordered
for San Simon station, which was at
first intended to be a side-track and
water station. The change is doubt
less due to the importance of Califor
nia District.
K uonn uruce, one oi tnc nest engi
neers on the road, who was injured
iu a recent accident near Yuma, is
now suflicientty recovered to be able to
walk around. He is at Los Angeles,
and it is understood that hu will ne t
go on the road again.
Mr. W. S. Ford, one of the most
popular conductors on the Southern
Pacific, has resigued, and will take a
similar position on one of the Cali
fornia roads. Mr. Ford, in common
with the railroad " bc-3's " in general,
has rendered the Citizen numberless
luvors iu the way of items, etc., and
our reportorial force especially will
lie sorry to sav good-bvc to him.
TIic Knntlolpli Group.
This group is once more coming
into prominence as a property of great
prospective value. Recent work of
development has shown up a wonder
fully rich vein, as will Ihj seen from
the following, taken from the Tomb
stone Xugget of the 12th :
" The Junietta mine, on the Charles
ton road, adjoining the Randolph, is
developing into one of the richest
properties yet discovered in this camp.
During the past week the- have been
taking out rock from the bottom of
the shaft, from which various assays
have Iwen made by H. W. Kearsing,
and the lowest is $S79C to the tou and
two reached the enormous sum of
22.300 and $27, 000. The vein from
which this valuable rock is taken is
not an exlcnspu one, btu sufficient,
should il hold out, to reap a larg
proflt to the owners. The properly
was placed last summer by C. K. Cole
to parties residing in Des Moines,
Iowa, and they are doiog the work on
the mine. During veslertlav there
were a large ntimiier of experienced
miners at the claim aud the specimens
brought away by them they pronounce j
tnc most valuable tltev have ever seen
in Arizona."
Reformed.
Mr. Placido lluelas, of this city
recently received a verv well and
neatly written letter from Guadalupe
Uomiuguez, who is now undergoing
term of imprisonment at Yuma from
this county. Dominguet was former
ly considered a verv hatd citizen, and
at the time ot his sentence was wholly
illiterate. Since he has been at Yuma
he has shown a most commendable
desire to reform, and has so improved
his time that his letter to Mr. 1'uelas
is very intelligent and wcll-wril en.
In it he states that he is verv kiud
treated by the prison authorities, who
will doubtless join the Citizen iu the
suggestion that perhaps this cae
might oe a goou one lor lhe exercise
of Goy. Fremont's clemency.

Fair Villu Progress.
The parties who had the last con
tract for sinking the shaft on the Fair
ilia mine have co i.pleted their con
tract, ano now tne shall is sunk to a
depth of Co feet. Serenl of the cap-
talists interested are now m San
Francisco for the purpose of placing
the stock on the Board. Experts who
have examined the mine report very
favorably and are of the opinion that
the air Villa has the same rich ledee
that passes through t'-e Three Broth
ers, San Pedro and True Blue mines,
New Ritilroud Construction.
The itailroad Gazette of December
3d gives a total of 101 miles of new
railroad. The construction thus far
this year is 5443 miles, against 3268
miles reported at the same time iu
1S7!), 2120 miles in 1873, 19W miles in
1S77, 21ii3 miles in 1876, 1176 miles in
1S75, 1781 miles in 1874, 3-156 miles in
1S73, and 0559 miles in 1S72.
The family were telling riddles one
evening, ami the tive-year-old told
this:
Four little bopper-toad sat on a tree.
Two hooped on aud tben there were three.
Nobody could guess it. " Well," she
explained, "one ot them hopped
right back again." "Who told you
that riddle?'' asked mamma. "No
body," replied the little one; '-I
thuuk it up myself."
Por-E Leo XI I is described as a
man of imposing presence, thorough
ly rogal, free, easy and confident. He
speaks with a great dignity and flu

sion ot being a man ot tremendous

dence.
CLOSING CP. ! CALIFORNIA DISTRICT.
i I

Southern Pacific Roads Slowly Dis
appearing Tablo of Distance and
fnrei.
The trains leavingy Tuesda night run
to the new station known as Deming,
ten miles east of Hio Mimbres, and
two hundred and thirty miles from
Tucson. Stages will run from that
point as follows:
From IJeming to Fort Cummlngs,
20 miles, fare, $3.
From Fort Cummings to Mesilla,
05 miles; fare, 0.
From Mesilla to El Paso, 50 miles;
fare, $7.50.
From Mesilla to Aleman (terminus
of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa
Fe Ilailroad), Co miles; fare, 10.
Distance from Deming to Aleman,
140 miles; fare, 22.
The scarcity of water renders a di
rect line from Deming to Aleman via
Colorado impracticable. The stage
will rim by way of Fort Selden if the
military authorities will grant per
mission to put in a station there. Ap
plication has been made for the priv
ilege. Potal Mutter.
The arrival in Arizona of Mr. H. J.
McKusick, Special Agent of the Pos
tal Department, is productive of much
good. The wanU and pressing ne
cessities of tho people in the way of
mail service are being energetically
investigated and remedied. Already
a railroad postal service has been put
on the Southern Pacific Eailroad from
Yuma to Benson, which will now in
sure certainty aud care in the delivery
of mail matter between those points.
The effect iu the Tucson postofllce
is even now apparent. A large amount
of labor is taken from the over-worked
clerks and done by the railway nonal
agents. This enables our poeial ofllc
ials to accomplish the duties which
legitimately belong to them iu a man
tier much more satisfactory to them
selves and the public.
Mr. McKusick wid return to Ttic
son in a day or two, and it i to lw
hoped that among other things he will
reestablish the direct mail service lie
tween this city aud Globe. The
number of people on the route who
are without suitable mail facili
ties is now great enough to demand
recognition. Globe City will thus be
once more enabled to get its mail
matter promptly. It is believed that
if Mr. McKusIcK will investigate the
matter he will find au urgent need for
this service.
Tbo Public Schools.
From the report of the Superinten
dent of theTucsou Public School for

Number of boys enrolled, 13S;
number of girls, S3; total, 221. Num
ber of pupils in reading and spelling,
201; In writing, ""l; in arithmetic,
221; in geograph-, 7G; in composition

There are four teachers iu

would be much enhanced were par

less of the apathy which the teachers

good educational advantages, and i
only remains for the public to tak

The Texas mine, one of the properties
of this company, u showing up fine

ork was commenced on this mine on
the olh of October, on a ledge show
ing some four feet of iron aud lime
cropping, which being stripped on
both sides at a dcplh ol 18 luchc;
disclosed a gulcua vein of 12 feet be
tween a bunging wall of porphyry
foot wall of limestone. This mine, it
will be remembered, was bonded for
$100,000 on a uinety days bond by the
present owners, but so well satisfied
were thev with the property that at
the expiration of sixty days the pur
chase money was paid over. The
shalt is now down about SO feet, al
most entirely in ore, the only excep
tions being at a depth ol 20 leet on
the foot wall where a lime horse pro
jected into the shaft, aud at a depth of

OU It-el, Where au iron cap eigm icui
thick was encountered. The horse
being blasted out disclosed 83 square
teet ot solid galena; aud thu iron cap
passed through, galena streaked with
high-grade carbonate appeared for a
depth of four feet, underlying which
were 18 to 20 inches of "magnificent
chloride ore honevcombed with native
silver, classed by name as " wax " sil
ver. The bottom of the sbatt is now
iu galena and carbonate of high grade.
As an average from all the assays had

comment. '1 he other propeity of this
company is the Dovetail, a southwest
extension of the lexas, upon which
no development has yet been made,
work being concentrated on the
Texas, upou which a tunnel is now
being (hi ven to intersect the ledge, at
a depth ot 1011 leet. Lpon this prop
erty ou men are employed. An ore
road of 500 yards is being graded
through solid lime from the furnace
site on Turkey Creek, to the mine
The Itough and Beady, belonging
to Messrs. A. I', lteilv and I . J. Lew
is, is also another fine miue. While
the ore is not ot as high grade as the
Texas, the ledge is well defined and
has a width oi lour leet on top. At a
depth of twelve feet the ledge widened
out aud the walls disappeared, the
work being entirely in ore from the
top to the bottom of the shaft, which
is now down CO feet, at whieh depth

The Messenger, belonging to the

turn of $212.
A northwest extension of the Texas
is the Mountain Top. Less than five
weeks since this prospect could have
lieen obtained for $150. Three days
subsequent to this oiler it was bonded
fos $1500; but a 20-foot shaft has giv

Among other things be said : " Thir

agreed mat l!l would be tne best

more liberal with his space. It was
hard work lor him to charge for any
thing except the tax-list and mort
gage sales, and lie measured short

Tucsox, December 14.
Editor. Citizkn: Som-ra Is just
now attracting the attcniion of the
mining people, and we may conll
eenilv exoeci a largo amount of bul
lion to come from there soon. The
working. ot the Soaom mines will add
materially to the prosperity ot iuc
son. and. in fact, has already done so.
In the Altar district there arc but ten
stamps iu operation as yet, but sixty
more are being put up now at three
different points. All the best miues
are going into the hands of Amcri
cans, and work is progressing very
favorably.
The 20-stamp mill at Cuson. of
Messrs. Magruder A Co., will start
ud within a few weeks to work the
gold mines purclmsed from Messrs.
Wimple and scaiante.
About half oi the machinery for the
Juarez Company has arri veil at their
mill site to work their group of four
teen mines, for which they paid .1(50,-
000. Considerable ot the ahovc sum
came to Tucson owners, and I think
there is a neat little cottage up on the
.Military Plaza, built by a part of lhe
proceeds.
The Santa relicitn. Company, near
Caborca. are busily putting up their
works ami building houses, aud ex
pect to commence work in about a
mouth or six woeks.
At the Ciencga, nbnut 50 miles
south of Altar, there are a great tium
ber ot very rich mines, with nn nbun
dance of wood, and water sufficient
for a thousand stamps; but there are
only about half a dozen arra&tras up
to the present time turning out bullion
from that wonderful section. The
principal miues in the Ciunega are
owned by Mr. Kcnnie and his lucsou
partners, Messrs. Hay and Austin
Labor is scarce just now, but too
aheap. It is not the country just yet for
a laboring man to come to, but as
soon as the mills have gotten down to
business skilled labor will be re
quired. Aiiomer item, uy the way
it is a very poor place lor tramps, and
we all hope that that fraternity will
take heed and, remain under the
protection of the Bed, White and
Blue. The distances between stations
are too great, nud the cold broiled
ham and bits of turkey that the unlives
would oner the poor, weary pedestrian
wouldn't be a fair recompense for the
toil.
Among the big companies, I omit
ted to mention the San Feliz. Thev
bought their mine very cheap nearly
two years ago, and are intending to
on na a railroad ?b miles long to the
sen, where they will put up a large
mill of 40 or 60 stamps.
I won't sat- anything more about
the country, but if anybody doubts
the existence of this great amount ot
wealth, just let them take a trip and
see for themselves. They will meet
with plenty of Americans, most of
them young fellows, but all hard nt
work hunting their fortunes. Mining
is encouraged by the better class ot
Mexicans, and thu laws are as just to
a foreigner as to a native.
