Thi.- j property can not be examined at pros 1 ent. on account of the caved-in conui tion of the old workings. Th?re is every reason to believe that good values will be found under the old workings, and I would recommend that the work now in progress should be pushed vigorous ly. The oppressions in the hillsides show that a large tonnage was ex tracted by the ancients from this place, and we know from experience that they only mined for the richest ores.

ARIZONA TIN MINES A New Miner? 1 Discovery Made in Kohave County Kingman. Ariz., Sept. 13, 1901. (Pp?. cial Correspondence of the Republican.) j William J. Roe, father-in-law of Henry Lovln. sheriff of Mohave county prospector and miner, has been showing a few specimens of ore around town, that wfre a puzzle to all experts and ore sharps. The ere is very heavy, rhinvlng that it contains a large per- j centape of some dense metal, but as says fulled to show either gold, silver, I j copper or lead. At last Mr. Ro? had It analysed and he was given a result, showing 7; per cent of tin. Mr. Ro.? refu.-'es to say where he found it. but as he has been prospecting in the por phyry rang? cast of the Colorado river, it is believed that he round the flor.t there. A number of horses, burros and mules are saddled and parked, standing in the stalls waiting; for Mr. Roe to make a start out of town. And it is safe to say that the anarchists of New York are not shadowed more closely than Is' poor Innocent Billy Roe.When he starts out. his trail will be hot v!'h prospectors, following him to the- new tin 11ml. MINI.N'fl NOTKA Siberian p.aoer mil. lug tailings are .. poor investment for foreign capital. There U not the amount of gold In them that heir Is represented to be by the Russians. There is not the quan tity of them at any cr.e point that Jus tifies the power and plan tinstallatlon necessary to rework them. The system of mining carried on everywhere under the direct supervision oT the Russian government mining engineers results in placers being worked In pits of varying size. From the washing ma chine, whatever It may be. the tailings are carted away and dumped where designated by the engineer. One small pit will provide several suvh plls, i-o one of them containing many thousand cubic yards of gravel. Sampling these Hies values may bo had from lit to :M centH a cubic ynnl .and with some of the oldest rich workings where quick silver was us:l without understanding there muy be values as nigh as one dollar to the yard. These values and the quantities of tailings are lnsurii cient to Justify the Investment of rapl- tal. In Siberia they do not attract even the Chinese, who are close miners there as here. Mining and Scientific Press. The Bullwhacker mine :3 now being retimbered. and preparations are now under way to put his famous old mine again in the front rank of Arizonn's bonanza mines, says the Courier. In the early days the Bullwhacker dl 1 more than its part In sustaining th. reputation of Arizona, during the per iod when anything less than JlOO-ore was conclde.-ed unworthy of attention. The mine has made quite a product, and now that Henry B. Clifford has the property, the usual results that follow his operations may be expected, f.i: the finest mine equipments in Uig Bug district owe the:r existence to his en ergy. The Bullwhacker is now down 14a feet, and reports state that wh.-n the old mineis were driven out by water there was a large body of tI.r-ore in the shaft. The last 100 tons c' o: treats d by Hugo Richards, now .resi dent of the Bunk of Arizona, netted $75fiO. The Bullwhacker Is one of the Queen of Aiizona Clipper company':: mines. Piobably one of the best If not the greatest strikes ever made in the H!"? boro, Sierra county, N. M., district hns been made in the El Oro mine, oper ated by the Philadelphia Mining anr1 Milling company at Andrews. On the ."00 foot level an ore body ranging from two feet to sixteen feet wide has been encountered, possessing a value of from $3 to $13S gold per ton. One man alone Is knerking down ore sufficient to keep the mill running. The beit of this ore when crushed ami panned produces nuggets varying in value from a few- cents to 0 and $7. Sheriff Truman received a letter this week fiorn J. J. Fraser. who is now on Copper river. Alaska, in which hi- speaks in glorving terms of the mining property In which they are interested with Jack Smith, whom they grub staked.- There are sixty claims in all. but !.r. Fraser had seen only about a third of them. On five there were Im mense bodies of copper glance ore ex posed. Three experts were on the ground examining W.e property for coir,panie?, and the prospect of selling at a large figure was favorable. Messrs. Truman and Fraser have been putting up for about four years and they an liable- to Boon reap their reward. Flor ence Tribune. STRIKE IS THE GREAT BELCHER Supt.
