YUM A COUNTY.
Her Rich MinesThe La Fortuna and King: of Arizona Great Mineral Wealth Yet Un developed Castle Dome Lead Mines. The County Ues Directly in the Haiti Gold Belt that Begins in Alaska and Ends hi Mexico. The following article is extracted from Governor Murphy's annual report to the Secretary of the Interior and is an interesting presentation of facts re garding some of the mineral resources of Yuma county, and a description of .two of the richest gold mines; also something of the Castle Dome lead mines: KIXQ OP ARIZONA. The gold-bearing property, bnotTii for a time as the Oleason, has been transferred to the King of Arizona i-iiaing and Milling Company, a cor poration organized Tinder the Ietts of the Terri tory of Arizonc, vith a capitalization of 5,000,000 shares of a par value of 81 each. This company ov.-us four full claims the Homestake, the Xing of Arizona, the Iast Hope, and the Macho Baeno. This district lies about thirty Ave miles due cast of thfi Castle Dome Land ing, on the Colorado River- It is north of the Gila Elver and about 40 miles from Mohawk Summit, on the Southern Pacific Railroad. This is the nearest station on the railway. There are several other locations besides those conveyed to the King of Arizona. The Homestakc location covers the chief workings up to this date. There is on this claim a strong vein cf gold-bearing quartz. This lode or vein has three well-marked divisions or layers. On the hanging wall there is a soft layer from 1 to 3 inches wide, which averages about S2.S0O per ton in value. Next below this there is a middle layer or body of quartz about 20 inches thick, which will average about SCO to ?100 per ton in value. The remainder of the vein, so far as It is exposed by the shaft, aver ages about 224 per ton. Test holes have been drilled 3 feet deep into the foot wail, and all are in ore. The shaft by which the exposure of the nature of the vein has been made is 200 feet deep and follows the dip of the hanging wall a distance of -10 feet easterly and 30 feet westerly. These show a continuity of vein, having the same characters and values develop ed by the shaft. The hill rises rapidly both east and west of the shaft so that the height of backs on the lode above the drifts is greater than at the shaft. At a point about 30 feet west of the shaft and on a level with the collar of the shaft the vela has been crosscut from wall to wall, showing it 18 feet wide at that point. The ore in the crosscut is of about the same grade as that in the shaft. The croppings of the vein may be followed for some 700 feet of the Home stake shaft to a second opening; known nsj'The King of Arizona Shaft." This shaft is about 50 feet deep, and by means of drill holes the vein is shown to be Jfect in width and has an ever age value of S10 per ton. At a point 300 feet cast of the Homestake shaft a tunnel has been made which crosscuts the vein 1C0 feet below the sur face. At this point the hanging wall vein is 18 inches wide and has an average value of 350 per ton. The tunnel then passes through 30 feet of vr'n matter running about 83 pei ton, thence through 7 feet of ore carrying S2S per ton to the foot wall. The total distance from hanging wall to foot wail along this tunnel is 40 feet. A drift has ben ran along the foot wall to the Homc etakc shaft at a distance of 303 feet, and the average value of the ore exposed 15 $14 per ton, "v UL FORTTJXA iTINS. In the early days of gold discovery of Califor nia, 1848, when the news reached the geld miners of Sonora, there was a general exodus of the abie-bodicd men who were able to get away northwest to the new El Dorado in California, and the state of Sonora contributed .many men to the mining population. They tcok the old rocd. which was known as the "camino real,"' from Hstancia and Altar northwestward, nearly parallel to the gulf, following the mountain ridge known as the Giia range, just north of our present boundary. The road led to Yuma, and in passing the Gila range they went within a few feet or yards of a very modest outcrop of quartz which no one seemed to consider of suf ficient value to merit any attention. That hum ble and Insignificant quartz outcrop is today the outcrop of the great Fortuna mine. -I; is situated on the westward ilcp" and nearly at the base of the range of mountains called on some of the old maps the Gila range. This trrnds northwesterly and reaches nearly to the Gi'a river at the point now known as Blciodcll. The railway in its course to Yuma passes around the northwest point of this range. Where the rocks are exposed at that point they are mostly of homogeneous granite, of gray color and weathered out at the surfaces, which, however, are much rittcd as if by decomposi tion of some soft substance. But beyond these Ior-lying hills of granite there arc big outcrops cf rock which to the experienced eye indicate stratified formations. They are indeed strati firci, for the bulk o the range southward and southeastward is composed of regular stratified, laminated, hard gneissic rock. I use the word "jjasls&ic" in a very general and comprehensive srnse, for you can describe these rocks with much more accuracy if you localize them as mica slates and hornblendic slates, with inter polations of quartziic beds, especially in the uppr part of the series, with green stains, sup posed to be stains of copper and decomposition of copper or', which they probably arc, al though there are peculiarities of color, and so yellow colors, which indicate to me the presence of some other mineral, possibly, tel lurium, which by its decomposition has given tis? colors. The fact remains, however, that th bullion from the upper part of the vein cos tal is more copper than it now contains ia the lor. or levels of the mine. The workings which bnve been carried on here have developed a condition of things which could not bo foretold fram an inspection of the outcrop. Ihs voin. f rkie appears to he a chimney, not a contino- ous ore body, nor & continuous vein with an ore 1 bouy or chimney or chute upon it. As rc-ma-ked the outcropping points indicate that th -?o is no very great longitudinal extension of tb-5 ore body. The vein is remarkable first in this limited out cmpr second, in its continuity in depth, its con-tia'n-d satisfactory richnrss, and the promise it giv- of enrichment by further veins dipping Intv it on the foot-wall sides. Same, facts in regard to the product or yield: TlK: ore pafd from the surface. The product or ore extracttrd up to the time has been about 80 tons i&r day. which is sut to tho 20-stamp mill, earn stamp of which crushes aboul 1 tons in ovry twenty-four hours. The extraction is chiefly and largely by power drills. A force of SO men is cmploy"d by this mine and mill. Th-i greater part of tabor underground and raining is done by compressed air.' The lode, I was told, was 6 to 15 feet wide-. This largf spuce permits the use of power drills to great ad vantage. In the material hoisted there are fragments of the wall rocks, some of which are thrown out. but many pieces pas through the rsl.1. They would prcr to rujc3t most of this watl rock, but it would take more-time, and ox pecsv than it doog to mill it, and there is a chance of some of it containing gold. From these SO tons of rock crashed daily the average ptialect is perhaps tW-OOO worth of gold par j month. Some months they have produced' as i high asJCO.O.. I The bottom lands, as well as those slightly Ia the region of the Fortuna mine the forma- J aigher, stretch along either side of the Gila and i!os appear to be wholly of mica slate and ' Colorado rivers for varying distances north and iwisbiondfi slat', wi ; b some arenaceous layers j south, until they meet the more elevated mesas likft old micaceous sa v?tonfw and quartzites. which rise from the valley.

These tinuous body stretching to a distance of two or three miles, awl showing it thickness at right nngle3 to the stnitidcaiioa of no less than 6,000 or 8,003, cr perhaps 10,000 feet, and there is no evidence whatever of plication. The stratifica tion is flat and as regular as the leaves of a book. Usually we detect more or less plication or folding in such a section, but there is no evi dence of any folding whatever in this series. There is, however, a great dLIcrenco in the composition of the layera cf these rocky ridges, now all turned black upon the surface a Condi tion of coloring which seems to attend all the rock outcrops along the lower Colorado, and the origin of which, though discussed by Humboldt rftcr noting similnr blackening of the rocks along the Orinoco, has not yet been satisfactory explained. This general blackening of the sur face hides the changes of composition, which may be noted by careful and close inspection. In some places hornblendic slates are more developed than the mica slate, and at others the micaceous schistose characters predominate and are accompanied by layers of quartzlte in terleaved and three or four feet in tqlckness, sometimes three or four inches, and some foliated quartz ha. ing little films of mica in it. These quartz beds are members of the series, but have been located as ledges and, it is claimed, are gold bearing. The quartz has little or no r?semblence to vein quartz, and yet at several points in the outcrop there are stains ci green color, apparently from the decomposi tion of ore like that which has given green stains to the croppings of the Fortuna. Several dike-like seams or veins of white al bite or soda feldspar cut directly across the bedding of the mica slate series. These f eldspa thic dikes do not appear to Iiave any relation to the ore bearing vein or lode of the Fortuna. These dikes are extremely irregular and appear to have filled cross fractures or breaks of the regular strata. Coarse granite was noted at the northern point of the Gila range, along the railroad, but no evidences were found of the existence of stratified Paleozoic or secondary rocks. The mica slates series referred to is the Huronian or Archaean. CASTLE DOME DISTRICT. The veins of the Castle Dome district may be said to have been rediscovered in 18G3, for it was evident that they had been anciently worked, as already stated in the historical introduction. The metal had been taken out from many of the veins by the ancient miners down to a depth of 'from 0 to 15 feet and in continuous lines of trenches, in seme places for 50 to 100 feet or more. These old workings were found to be safe guides to good metal bearing ground a short distance deeper. Well worn trails leading off from these pits to the banks of the Gila river, some 18 miles distant, and the ruins there of some rude smelting furnaces, indicate that the ores were carried to the Gila, probaaly on the backs of Indians, and that they were smelted there, whether by the Aztecs or the early-arriving Spanish explorer is not known. Since 1863 these mines have been worked almost continuously, and are now yielding silver-lead ore of most excellent quality, which is shipped to San Francisco. The claims were worked by the prospectors without capital until October, 1870. Up to January 1, 1892, there had not been an investment of over 5300 in building or per manent improvements. The climate Is such that men can work the year round without no more protection than is afforded by brush, huts or tents. The veins crop out on a rolling plain or mesa at the base of the Castle Dome range, a very rugged and picturesque group of mountains trending northwest and southeast, rising near the center to the remarkable dome-shaped sum mit with precipitous sides, looking like a huge round castle or-bullding with a dome. It is a noted landmark, being visible from a great dis tance in all directions. It was originally called "Capitol Dome" by the officers at Fort Yuma in 1853, from the fancied resemblence to the dome of the capitol at Washington. This mountain range, being but sparingly watered, has never been convenient to prospect and very little is yet known of its structure or mineral value. The mines are usually reached from Yuma by driving to Gila City and thence to the mine, from 16 to 18 miles east and inland from the river. The claims are numerous. Some have been patented and worked to a depth of 300 feet or more. The veins are re markably regular and well formed. The ore is galena, carrying about 30 ounces of silver to each ton. The veins trend in a general northwest and southeast course and are nearly vertical. The outcrops are In dicated by outlying masses and weather worn crystals of flourspar. which is the chief veinstone. Galcite and gypsum arc also found, and in some of the veins there is a vein stone of quartz dispersed in sheets or "combs" along the walls or in distinct sheets in the center. Manganese spar and barite are also as sociated in layers. The thickness or power of these veins is usually from 2 to 3 feet, sometimes from 8 to 12 feet, wide. There are veins also only a few inches in width. In general the veins are well filled with ore. This ore occurs in sheets or bunches scattered through the vein stone and commonly known among the miners as ball metal. In one mine in the district a mass of nearly solid ore 8 feet thick was found. At or near the water level, where the galenite has decomposed, both carbonate and sulphate of lead are found associated with a pale-green fluoritc and an abundance of crystallized yellow wulfcnite, another occurrence giving evidence of the presence of molybdenum in galenite. The rocks of the district are compact fine grained mica and clay slates standing nearly on edge and traversed by numerous dikes or intru sive masses of a chocolate-colored porphyry. THE GILA VALLEY. The Gila valley extends from the Gila canyon near the junction of the San Pedro river, west erly to the east bank of the Colorado, a distance of slightly exceeding 250 miles. That portion of it situated in the county of Yuma, known as the Lower Gila valley, is about 100 miles long and from 2 to 10 miles wide, all of which is suscept ible of profitable cultivation. !The river from which it takes its name cuts the valley in two. Its watershed extends some 30 miles north and upward of 50 miles south of its channel, tlic land irom either extreme inclining more or less rabidly toward the btream. The Giii traverses u marvelously fertile country, very great in extent, and tpiendidly adapted to the cvltivaticn of nearly all the products of the temperate and semi- tropic zones, besides many of the fruits common in the tropics. Nor is this longer a matter of idle speculation, for flourishing ranches in various portions of the valley, drawing water from several important canals, amply demonstrate the magnificent results that will ensue should the water supply be rendered permanent, equable and adequate through appropriate storage systems. This consists of a broad expaase of tillable valley land, sometimes overflowed by the river, which is at times mighty uncertain, and a steep range of volcanic hill, coming close to the high ways, for a dozen miles or .so, hot. heavy, sandy. It is hardly fair to say sandy as it is really a friable alluvial soil of grayish hue and loose texture. Several ranches are passed, showing, that the Gila bottom is cultivated. With irri gation every square mile of the Gila valley is capable of producing prolific crops of grain and semi-tropical fruus, us well as cottou and sugar in great ubuudauve. The river is able to fur nish all the water needed and a good deal more. It would take no great skill in engineering and not a very large sum of money either to con struct reservoirs or lakes in which to receive and store the overflow., There are natural basins or dry lakes into which by simple means the water could be conveyed. The lands situated in and ubout the Gila val ley may conveniently be classified as follows: First", the bottom or overflow lands; 2, slightly higher valleys, lands subj ct tj lo overflow; 3. mesas or sloping uplands; 4 atively level plain:; 5, mom high but conipar- mountams. spring into maturity with startling rapidity, rarely failing to yield bountifully without addi tional irrigation. The custom is occasionally followed by resident farmers to this day, with excellent results, although but a single crop can be harvested. These bottoms form 25 per cent of the valley lands, and may without difficulty be secured from further Invasion by a system of dikes and levees, if deemed necessary and desir able. The soil throughout the valley is a rich brownish yellow sandy loam, generous, mellow, porous, with a depth ranging from (J to 20 feet, the whole resting upon underlying strata of gravel und sand thai, readily carry from the surface such excess cf water as might otherwise prove Injurious co seeds and growing p;a t . Concerning the geological formation of these lands, the -following from the report of the citizens' executive committee is sufficiently comprehensive : There is unmistakable geologic evidence that all this land during some prehistoric period was covered with water, constituting in fact an euormous lake, the surfaces rising in places to upper portion of the outskirting mesas. The soil lying at the bottom was made by the washing and erosion of the surrounding mountains. The soda from the decomposed vegetation, the mag nesia and lime from the magnesium-lime forma tions, and the potash from the decomposing granite rocks were carried with unceasing re gularity year by year, until deposited in the bottom. Eventually upon the disappearance of the lake, the rich fertile alluvium, than which there is none better, was left to reward the efforts of the modem husbandmen. But nature, not yet satisfied with her handiwork, directed the accumulation of the detritus washed from the distant mountainous region. As a result, the soil is extremely rich in the elements best adapted to thorough fertilization, for it contains a certain amount of organic matter which, on decomposing, further enhances its agricultural value. By constant overflow and change of channel the deposits are evenly distributed over considerable areas, the process continuing through centuries. These soils are further en riched by decomposed organic contributions, including the sandstones, marls, limestones, shales, etc. Besides the ingredients mentioned, a chemical analysis shows that iron, ammonia, and phosphoric acid enter into its composition in the proportions best adapted to add to Its productive qualities. The extremes of tempera ture are somewhat greater than on the high lands, but there is also more moisture. The bottom lands arc so easily cultivated that it is not uncommon, after clearing the sur face from the brash and stubble, to pass over the ground with an ordinary cultivator a single time, afterwards sowing to grain and grass. In three or four months large crops are harvested, the soil meanwhile being entirely innocent of the plow. All plants seem to grow rapidly, maturing remarkably early. Indications of an cient ditches are apparent throughout the val ley, showing plainly the existence of irrigation worlcs by the ancient Aztecs. Curiously enough, in certain instances, the .identical routes of these long extinct people have been followed for codsideratable distances by their modern suc cessors." THE VALLEYS CF THE COLORADO. "Several miles above Yuma, in the neighbor hood of Explorer's Pass, near the Purple Hills, the great Colorado River Valley proper com mences. From this point northerly the river is shut in by cliffs which, with intervening moun tain systems, absolutely preclude the possibility of canal construction. Passing southward, the cliffs are seen to gradually disappear until they become merged in the low bottom lands. The bottom meanwhile widens with every mile until the Gulf of California is reached. There are large quantities of land which could be made productive were irrigation practicable. These are general fertile bottoms inclining toward the river and covered in spots with dense under growth and eottonwood and mesquite trees. Considerable of the valley is raised above the river as much as 100 feet, and to this height water must bo brought, as the bottoms are dur ing certain months completely overflowed by the waters of the swollen streams. The, soil is extraordinarily rich and particularly adapted to the cultivation of sugar, rice, and all the tex tile plants, in addition to an extended list of tropical, semitropical, and temperate products. according to a careful chemical analysis, the fertilizing mud carried by the Colorado closely resembles that of the waters of the Nile, while its volume at low water has been estimated by competent authority as sufficient to easily irri gate more than 1,750,000 acres." The lands of the lower Colorado River Valley have not boen developed very extensively, owing to the litigation over what is known as the tVlgodones land grant, which has been in the courts for the last decade. The vexed question has lately been settled by the U. S. Supreme Court in favor of the government. ARIZONA. Her Great Resoarces-Solendid Soil-Fine Climate. Agriculture One of the Important Industries of Arizona. No Fertilization of the Soil Neces sary Siit Deposited by Irri gation Renders the Soil Rich in the Element of Fertility. The Climate Conditions Favorable to a Great Variety of flarkctable Produce. The following report from the direc tor of the experint station, is published as giving a fair resume of the conclu sions which have heen reached in re gard to agriculture in this territory: One of the most encouraging signs of the times in connections with Arizona is the growth of her agricultural interests. These interests, by creating a settled population and certain sources of wealth, insure the Territory, as a whole, against those excessive fluctuations in popula tion and finance which are so often observed in purely mining communities. Although but a small percentage of the total area of Arizona is under cultivation, yet when the actual amount and productiveness of these lands is considered, the place of agriculture among the industries of the Territory is very important. Arizona has and always will have land in excess of the water supply available for irrigation, without which agriculture can. excepting in rare instances, hardly be considered. Out of about 72,800,000 acres in the Territory only 5,700,000 acres are privately owned, of which about 450,000 acres are under irrigation ditch. For the total amount of land under ditch, there is not sufficient water in all instances to insure crops; but in time there can be little doubt that the storage and development of water will lead to the successful irrigation of much more than the area under ditch. The future of agriculture in Arizona is, with out question, more than usually good, and for the reason that the conditions of soil, irrigation, and climate combine to produce an uncommon variety and amount of marketable produce. The soil of Arizona, as is usual with the soils of arid regions, are rich in the elements of fertili ty, requiring only the ever-needful water, skill, and industry in their management to secure abundant returns. The fertility of cultivated soils in irrigated regions is further assured by the deposite of silt brought upon the land with irrigation water. The problems of fertilization, which become so serious in humid sections, are therefore of much less importance here and not to be so carefully reckoned with in connection with the future of our agriculture. The most marked advantage in connection with agriculture and horticulture, especially in southern Arizona, is the climate. From January to June the temperature re:crubles that of spring and early summer in the latitude of Ken tucky. From Juno to-September the climate is of subtropical fervor, while from. September to November tlu-ro ii r, second mild season of tem perate weather. The winter .season, from Nov ember to January, though subject to sharp frosts in southern Arizona, is not seriously or even uncomfortably cold. Owing to this combination of seasons a re markable variety of crops may be found in ho same locality at different times of the year. Strawberries, which flourish in Greenland, may be found on the same laud with dates and palms from Sahara. Alfalfa, the great forage of the arid West, flourishes alongside with wheat, corn, and sorghum, respectively characteristic of Minnesota, Illinois, and Kansas. Orange3, lemons, and olives from California may be found in the same neighoorhood with peanuts and sweet potatoes from Virginia. In brief, many of the leading crops of both temperate and sub tropical countries, which arc not affected by a too arid atmosphere or by the frosts of winter, flourish in southern Arizona. In northern Ari zona, where the temperatures more resemble those of northern Illinois, many of the more dis tinctively temperate-region crops flourish, such as potatoes, apples, and various small fruits. When, with this diversity of products is coupled a healthful, and for the most of the year agreeable, climate, it will be seen that agricul tural in Arizona possesses distinct advantages. Still Moie Counterfeiting. The Secret Service has unearthed an other band of counterfeiters and secured a large quantity of bogus bills, which are so cleverly executed that the aver age person would never suspect them of being spurious. Things of great value are always selected by counterfeiters for imitation, notably the celebrated Hos tetter'B Stomach Bitters, which has many imitators but no equals for indi gestion, dyspepsia, constipation, ner vousness and general debility. The Bitters sets things right in the stomach, and when the stomach is in good order it makea good blood and plenty of it. In this manner the Bitters get at the seat ot strength and vitality, and restore vigor to the weak and debilitated. Bo ware of counterfeits when buying. Notice.
