THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 9, 1896.
MINING NOTES.
The Pearce mines belong to the same
general formation and are in fact part
of this gold district, and as soon as the
country comes to know of the enor
mous veins of low grade ore with their
rich stringers threading through them
which are to be found in that region
there will be a mining excitement in
that section which will eclipse any
thing ever experienced in or about
Cripple Creek. The Star predicts Bow
ie and Willcox will ere long experience
. a revival resulting from the gold reg
ion contiguous to them which they
little dream of now Tucson Star.
Prescott Courier: A recent visitor
in Big Bug district noted many evi
dences of prosperity. Many miners
are building new cabins, placer miners
are doing well, having an abundance
of water, while on every hand quartz
miners may be seen at work.
The Treasure Mining company of
Denver will soon start sinking the
shaft below the 300-foot level on the
Atlantic vein. About fifty men are em
ployed at the mine and the mill and
the property is paying handsomely.
The same company will also start
sinking below the 400-root level on
the Deep Down vein, which runs paral
lel to the Atlantic and about sixty feet
distant. The properties will be worked
from separate shafts on each vein.
The Las Amarillas mines, Sonora,
are producing from $110,000 to $120,000
gold monthly.
Arrangements will soon be made to
start the furnace of the Arizona and
New Mexico Smelting company, which
is controlled by the American Zinc and
Lead company of Conon City, Colorado.
The washing out of the track of the S.
C. & N. R. R. by floods last summer
shut off the transportation and supply
of fuel and caused the closing down of
the furnace. '
A rich strike is reported on the Blind
Goddess, a claim near Kingman, owned
by Henry Ewing and others.
The Cedar Valley Gold and Silver
Mining company, whose property is lo
cated forty miles south of Kingman, is
about to add fifteen or twenty stamps
to its present five-ton mill. There are
two veins in the property, one four and
the other fifteen inches in width, as
saying $12 gold and twenty-five ounces
silver.
Solon Marker, who is hauling ore
for Mr. Schaar, came in from Placer-
itas last evening, bringing favorable
reports from the camp. He says the
mine is showing up fine, with about
fifty men at work thereon. While Mr.
Marker and Mr. Mendenhall were out
prospecting a few days ago they dis
covered and located, three miles east
of Schaar's mill, a four foot ledge of
ore which assays $25 per ton gold.
They expect to have a five stamp mill
in operation upon same inside of three
months. Mr. Schaar is running his
ten stamp mill day and night, handl
ing twenty-eight tons of ore every
twenty-four hours. The best of the
ore goes over $300 per ton, while the
low grade ore will average $50 per ton.
Two steam hoists are in operation up
on the mines. Mr. M. started in haul
ing ore there some months ago with
two horses; now he uses twelve horses
and is in Prescott to further increase
hia hauling facilities. Prescott Cour

NOTES OF INTEREST.
United States Register Tillman, of
the treasury, in his annual report
states that on May 38, 1895, coupon
bonds amounting" to $31,157,700, of the
loan of 1825, issued in exchange for
coin, were delivered to a committee
appointed for the purpose by the secre
tary of the treasury, in order that
they might be transported to London,
England, and there delivered to the,
representatives of a syndicate. Dur
ing the year there were issued 143,476
bonds of the value of $258,595,350.
During the same period there were
cancelled 64,519 bonds of the value of
$136,941,450. The number of bonds is
sued during the last year shows an in
crease over the previous year of 63,
114. The report of F. A. Reeve, solicitor
of the treasury, shows that the total
number of suits brought under his di
rection during the year was 5,646; 3,
466 suits were decided in favor of the
United States; thirty-nine were ad
versely decided; 655 were settled and
dismissed; in five penalties were re
mitted, leaving 1,481 still pending.
The amount of judgments obtained
was $1,009,885; amount collected, $262,-
097. Offers of compromise pending in
volve $585,830.-
The November treasury deficit, from
official figures, will be $7,621,000, and
for the five months of the fiscal year
to date, $40,500,000. United States
Treasurer Morgan, on November 30,
mailed 1,090 checks, aggregating $126
832,- in payment of December interest
on the funded loan of 1896.
The national debt of Spain is $1,395,
000,000, and the debt of the United
States is $1,695,000,000. Spain with her
colonies has a population of about 29,
000,000 and the United States has a
population of about 70,000,000.
There appears to be money in the
bull fighting business in Spain. The
leading toreador of Madrid is credited
with having earned $61,200 the past
season of six months, and the less dis
tinguished ones have each taken in all
the way from $10,000 to $30,000. There
were during the season 438 perform
ances, in which 1218 bulls were killed
while over 6,000 horses perished in the
fights. These figures include only
high class bull fighting at the most
important cities. The lesser cities
and towns were not deprived of their
share of the sport. '
