' Correspondence of The Republican. 1 Goldfield, Ariz.,' April 30. Miss Mamie Kennedy and sister came to Goldfield on a short visit among their many friends here. The former had charge of the school the last term and daring her stay here in the capacity of teacher won the approval of the parents and greatly endeared herself to the pupils of the school. Sheriff Truman of Florence, made a brief sojourn iu town and suburbs last week. He was here on official busi ness. Mr. Walter Lewis left yesterday for Mesa; his many interests in that enter prising town claim much of his atten tion. Peterson Bros., have acquired the mercantile interests of Kimball & Lewis and intend to keep a complete assortment of goods to meet the wants of all classes of customers in this sec tion of the country. The town has bad an accession of in dividuals attracted by the reDort of the re-opening of the Bulldog mines ; a mill it is understood will be placed on the ground soon and the mines worked to their full capacity.The'jPomeroy mill will soon be running on ore from the Gold field mine; a general clean up is being made preparatory to starting up again. The owners of the Gold Reserve claim, a promising piece of property which lies near the Needle group of mines, have been making some good developments on their claims. The Gold bug mine which is being sunk in the ledge, consists of spar and quartz with ferric oxide ;this latter con tains a considerable amount of free gold and will pay well in a mill. Many of the new developments in this camp have been made in Maricopa county, in fact the bulk of the exposed lodes outcrop close to the line of both counties. Developments on the Columbia clain situated in the Superstition lode have proven the existence of a large body of gold ore which will require Borne labor to uncover and put in good shape for economical extraction. Work may soon be resumed on the Gold King claim ; this is a heavy iron cross ledge lying about a quarter of a mile northeast of Goldfield. The ledge is bold, strong and has all the attributes of a permanent ledge; the proportion of gold in the ore increases as depth is at tained. Superstition Mine No. 1. The Superstition Mine No. 1, which presents in the character of the ore ex tracted many features different from those usually found in the Goldfield Basin, is being rapidly put in condition for the regular extraction of ore; some stripping has already been done and etoping will be begun soon. The ore, it is understood, will be worked in the Mammoth mill, pending the erection of works on the company's property. Water is readilv reached in a few feet in the flat below the mine.

T Fleming: P.lock. operations on this property are likely to be very extensive in the near future a brief description may be acceptible to the general public. The ledge lies on the east flank of a black pyramidal mountain about three and one-half miles northeast of the town of Goldfield and six miles from the Salt river. The general trend of the lode is northerly and southerly, and it is not again exposed to any extent un til it enters Superstition mountain about three miles east of the point of the mountain, being covered much of the way by a red ferruginous sandrock partially auriferous, aud the general rock usually found in the basin ; north erly it dips under calcitic bluffs and sandrock, not again being exposed on the south eide of the river. There are a number of shafts on this property. Shaft A, about 15 feet in depth, sunk on a stringer from the main vein, gave very satisfactory re sults near the surface and for some distance down. The Truman shaft, down a distance of 40 feet, lies a little west of the first mentioned ; this con tains a fairly defined vein with quartz- ite and porphyry in the wall rock, the ore extracted from this shaft was ricn-. er at the surface in free gold than it was in the bottom. In an incline now down 20 feet, which lies north of the first mentioned shafts, the vein has been reached and a peculiar feature ef the ore found is that it contains copper in a silico-carbonated condition. This seems to have been the agency by which the gold in the magnuerous iron (which usually con tains a small amount of copper) was rendered free. This cuprous rock con tains gold which Is free, brilliant and of a high degree of purity, it is found enclosed in pockets in the general vein stuff. This leads to the supposition that the cuprous character ot ore higher up has been eradicated or leached out by percolating waters in the seams of the vein stuff. An air connection is to be made by means of this incline with the main workings of the mine, these consist of an open cut sunk on an incline, the south side being the footwall ot the ledge. This extends for some twenty five feet in a northerly direction ; a fall of ground has rendered it at present un workable. A shaft also on an incline a short distance north of this cut, which is over 60 feet in depth forms the entrance to the lower working of the mine. At present this shaft is trouble some on account of the foulness of the air. Pure air will, however, be secured on completion of the air shaft mention ed above. The ledge in the lower workings has been stripped 25 feet northerly and 15 feet southerly and the exDosed vein consists of very rich ore ; this will be stopped and the owners ex pect to keep sufficient ore stripped to run continnouslv ; rock aesaving from $200 to $300 per ton is frequently met with in these workings. A perpendicular shaft some 80 feet in depth and having a connection with a tunnel, has been sunk on a high por phyry dyke which caps the lode. This dyke has a value of $3 to $7 per ton and is about 15 feet wide at the surface. The lode below has been cross-cut to a width of 50 feet and carries gold throughout its entire width. The dump from these workings containing over 600 tons of rock has an average gold value of $4 a ton. Granite when found in the lode is generally auriferous. Ore from veins in this lode has yielded ex cellent results in an arastra. Tbo earlier works coosist of numer ous prospect pits and a shaft now down 80 feet sunk on a ledge 6 feet in width at the outcrop afterwards contracting to a width of 4 feet; pay streaks in this vein yielded an average of $50 per ton ; richer rock is expected below water level ; there are about 200 tons of ore on the dumpB averaging $10 a ton. A tunnel can be run gaining a depth of over 100 feet, below the present workings which would greatly facili tate the extraction of ore. Placer gold is found here in several of the gulches.

There are a large number of Euro pean noblemen, particularly members of the French, Italian, German and Hungarian aristocracy, who have re nounced, along with their former Christian faith, their names, which are now concealed under Turkish patro nymics. Thus, Nouri Pasha, whom the sultan had appointed as ambassador at Vienna and whom Emperor Francis Joseph declined to receive at his court, is no, other than the French Comte de Chateavmeuf, who, after entering the Ottoman army and marrying a Turkish lady, embraced the Monammedan faith. There has always been an antipathy felt since the time of the crusades against these renegades, and it is solely on this account that the em peror of Austria refused to permit N ouri Pasha to represent the sultan at Iiis court. ormer o in o o 6 z fhis is a sample of Unfortuoate. How often our most innocent speeches "gang agley," leaving us with no resource but that of making the best of a bad matter! A certain Scotch minister is wont to relate how, having been out all day visiting, he called on an old dame well known for her kind ness and hospitality. After some con versation she began getting out her best china and whatever delicacies were at hand to honor her unexpected guest. As he sat watching the prep arations his eye suddenly fell on four or five cats devouring some cold por ridge under the table. "Dear me, Miss Black," he observed, "what a number of cats! Do they all belong to you?" "Na, na, sir," was the innocent reply; "but mony a time I say that a' the hungry brutes in the parish come tae me, seeking a meal o' meat." Then the good woman bethought her, and in her embarrassment nearly dropped a teacup. Youth's Companion. , ' i A Peculiarity of Man. He was leaving the crowd where the theater tickets for a big engagement were being sold. There was a happy look on his face, which suddenly van ished. He put his hand to his temples, and then he said: "I guess I'll hunt up some quiet place and kick myself. That's what I'll do." "What's the matter?" asked the friend who had overtaken him. "I have been letting the calcium light of mathematics into the opales cent mist of my enthusiasm," he re plied. "What do you mean?" "I've just figured it out that I've stood out in the snow in line for five hours to pay extra money for a theater seat, rather' than stand up for three hours "atf the 'performance, where it's warm and 'comfortable." Washington Star. ' A Useful Family. It is generally supposed that to do one thing and do it well is enough for any man or firm, but a sign which used to be seen upon the door of a house near Bridgewater, in England, indi cates that one family in that district was not satisfied with so limited a field of usefulness. The sign read as fol lows: "Barnes & Son, Blacksmith & Barber's Work Done Here; Horseshoe ing & Shaving, Locks Mended and Hare Curled, Teeth Pulled & all other Furriery Work. Also Ale and Beer for Sale Here. Take notis, too, My Wife Keeps Skool, Teaches Reding and Kit ing and Other Langwitches, Also Ori tory, Sowing, Mathewmaticks, and all other Fashionable Diversions."- -Harper's Young People. CHECKING LABOR AGITATORS. The Plan Followed During the Building of a Mexican .Railroad. "They had an original and effective way of preventing strikes on the Sono ra railroad while it was building," said its first superintendent, according to the New York Sun. "The Mexican peons were queer laborers to deal with, and there were habitual kickers and agitators among them to stir up discon tent, like those we find in other more enlightened regions where great works are carried on. The Mexican govern ment, standing as a backer of the road, was of course interested that nothing should interfere with its progress, and so when it was discovered that a man was stirring up trouble among his fel low laborers he was disposed of in a way peculiar to the country. "Some men were detailed to get him drunk no difficult task when liquor was furnished free and he would wake up in the morning to find himself in military barracks and to be informed that he was an enlisted soldier in the army. All the formalities had duly been gone through with, and he was kept m seclusion in the barracks until he was transferred to some remote part of the republic. He was enlisted under an assumed name, so that when his friends came to the barracks to inquire after him by name they were informed that there was no such man there. If they doubted the statement there were the rolls, which they might inspect. As the Mexican soldier is virtually a pris oner, and the army is made up to a con siderable extent of criminals pardoned under condition of enlisting, no com ment would be excited by the keeping of a new recruit in confinement, and, off in Yucatan or Tabasco, his friends would not hear of him again, at least during the building of the road."
