(Continued From First Page.) and newsy weeklythe Jerome Miner published by W. S. Adams. The Arizona Educator, a periodical devoted to the educational interests of the ter ritory at large, is alBO published here. The newspaper field, however, is about to be invaded by another weekly, which will make its appearance on the New Year under . the guidance of Joscelyn & Riley. Take the town altogether a super ficial observer can detect an air of general prosperity: with a decided en ergetic, progressive policy. The town, though, is almost entirely dependent on the Jerome mine, as every payday indicates. There are several other mines in the region, however, and numerous rich pros pects that when opened will add ma terially to the growth of tne town, A eood many of these prospects are now in litigation, but when once set tled effective results will happen im mediately. A great deal has been written about the United Verde mine, but compara tively little is really known of it by outsiders. That it is one of the rich- est mines in the world no one Who has examined the outer workings will gainsay. None but the employes .who work underground can form any direct conception of the actual magnitude of its riches, but their mouths are sealed. A very fair idea may be formed from the fact that about three cars of cop per bullion are shipped daily and an average of one car of matte. The out put is represented at about J600.000 a month. The mine is not a mere lode or veil), but an entire mountain of ore. It is not only a copper proposition, but there is also a 'large percentage of gold and silver. It is said that an im mense body of silver ore was uncov ered a short while ago, but the com pany does not intend to work on the ore for obvious reasons. The company has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in mining ma chinery and has about the most per fect plant in the country. No ex pense is spared in that line and an ad dition will shortly be made to the smelter, several carloads of machinery and material being already on the grounds. The employes of the company are well paid and nothing is overlooked that would add to their safety and comfort The miners in fact are unanimous in saying that they are better treated here than in any mine they have been employed. class of pupils and is doing well. He contemplates returning shortly to Phoenix. New strikes in this section and on Cherry creek are reported almost daily. There is no doubt but that this region is the Cripple Creek or Arizona. James Shaw of Mesa City, while working on the track upon which the large hoisting crane operates, was pushed forward, the wheels running over his right arm. He hung sus pended in the air piteously begging somebody to cut his arm off and re lease him from his position. The ma chine could not be moved either way without crushing the life out of the young man. The arm was crushed to a pulp and be was held in his posi tion solely by the tendons of the arm which were not severed. It was found necessary to cut the tendons with a pocket knife. He was removed to the hospital and an operation performed. The remainder of the arm and a por tion of the shoulder was amputated. For several days the young man's life was despaired of, but it is now thought that he will survive. Ed Helm of Phoenix, a brother-in-law of the young man, is here in attendance on him. Another accident occurred in the mine that morning, making the third in ten days. A young man named Ernest Finlan was leaning over the rail looking down the shaft at the forty foot level when the cage. which was descending, struck him on the head. He was impelled downward and traveling at a greater rate of speed than the cage he struck the floor of the machine, which saved him from being crushed to death. He was thrown out at the 140 foot level where he was found. He is badly bruised about the head and body, but it is thought he will live. GENERAL NEWS NOTES. S. F.
