Tho Glrard milMvus not s'arted up until about the middle of 1ml month, and for several days did not run regularly, consequently, wo have made liberal deductions from what may reasonably be expected lrom it hencciorlh. Wc have not credited the Boston mill with nny product other than the Vizina, as wo are not advised as to what other ores, if any, it has been work ing. Should the Ingersoll company begin to send their ore to the mill this month, we ex ect to chronicle for the m .nth of 31 arch an output in excess ot(half a mil lion doll trs, at which rate the production will bo kept up for the remaining nine months of the year. Tombstone Milt Jk Mining Co. Tocoii Nut. East of the main shaft, close to the Good -Enough west side line, connection has been made during the tfitet week between tho 100 and 200 levels affording an outlet to tho largest body of ore between these two levels, that has ever been opened in this mino It is not to be mVtlerstood by tills that a recent discovery ofTorc has here been made further than tlTat the development made by and from thnT connection is such ns to determine an extent of high grade, oro beyond the ex pectations of the most sanguine. The 300 level drifts, from the main shaft, arc steadily progressing with a favorable out look; the south drill, at a distance of about 280 feet, strikes tho contact of lime nnd quartziie, at which point it elbows to tlie west, tho face of the drift being now in GO Itet from tho angle or turn of the drift. Northwest shaft Notwithstanding the fact that twice, in tho history of these workings, the o'Ulook was considered unfavorable, on ouch orcason tho ore body has been recovered and proved very profitable. The shipment of oro from this slraft, whicli has never ceased, though at timts materially lessened, has been of uni formly high grade, and the present de velopmcnt, which is mainly confined to a westward extension ol the 150 level, indi cates that within the next quarter the .Northwest will be a bevvy producer. Tho face of the 150 level, west drift, is now in 20 feet from the shaft, the ore body being somewhat broken but improving steadily. " !Vncw boiler for this hoist camo In yestcr day and will bo at once placed in position. Jood Enocoii. The ore in sight in the f incline working of this mine, from the J main shaft, is so great that it would bo r-rjjnc.ult to estimate it. In making tho round of these working yesterday drift after drift was traveled presenting to the eye hundreds of tect of pay ore in such quantities ns warrants the assertion that there is In sight, here, mill reserves for months to ennic. But the finest showing of tho entire workings of this company is to Dc found in the combination shaft, drifts, winzes, stopes and crosscut con nections. The output from tuis section of the G7od Enoug.i has already exceeded $1,000,000, and there is now. in sight almost, if not quite, an equal amount. West Side. Station now being cut out at the 150 level, and face of drift now in 40 feet to the north showing an average strength of 20 inches of high grade ore. The output from this mine still runs about 30 tons per wetk with a light force, the wagon samples never yet running below 100 ources to tho ton, and generally over 150 ounces. Output for the month of February, $115,000. IluuWer Hill . A S. 31. Co. This Is a property that has not hereto fore figured in these reports, owing to the fact that the superintendent, Mr. C. M. Macomber, did not caro to make known his preliminary development work. The mine is situate on Hunker Hill, just back of I'icK em-up station, about one mile and a half wet of- town. Tho property con sists of Rations adjoining each other. Those nio the Hunker Hill, Gwod Samari tan, Oliio, Dragoon, Cleveland and Hazard. The development work has been confined to tho Good Samaritan, which lies in I lie center of tho group. Wlicn Mr. Macomb-' cr took chnrgH of the property he found it 35-foot vertical shaft sunk on the cast side of the ledge. This he continued down to 80 feet where bo drilled west 28 feet to the ledge, which he found well defined and dipping to the west at an angle of ubout CO decrees. He 'then comintnccd an incline, keeping thohanglng wall fur the roof of the shaft, and has sunk 100 feet,, making the total depth 180 foot. On the 80 foot level he drifted to the south 81 feet and to the north 22 feet without any material results. It is in the Incline where proppects have justified him In the belief that he will get a most valuable mine. The ledge where crosscut near the bottom, is 12 feet wide, with the most perfect walls we ever saw. Both the hanging and foot walls are per fectly smooth and covered with greenish white talc that bears the impress of tbo dy namic agencies that forced the filling into the fissure after the fracturo had been made complete by thu thioes of nature. The stria along both font and hanging walls, rise toward the south at an angle of about 45 degrees, showing that tho injecting force has come from the north. The filling consists of broken fragments of shale, dc composed quartz and clay, with threads ot ore crisscrossing tho mass at different points. In the bottom of the Incline, next to tho hanging wall, a vein of rather close groined crystalinc quartz has been struck that assays upwards of $300. '1 his vein is about six Inches wide and'earrics the never failing (in Ihis district) green horn.silvcr Its angle of occurtcnce'secms to conform to the stria mark's upon the hanging wall, which would indicate that they have struck upon the tail end of a chimney of ore which has its oriirin in the heart of the hill and whieh is liable to open out to the south of the shaft into great magnitude. The country rock is theporphyritic shalo of ihe district that has been i roven in so Many cases most favorable for the pro duction of rich mineral. The mine has been opened thus far with judiiment and skill. Taken as a whole we consider the prospects for a valuable property first class. Turquols DUtrlct. From recent strikes made in this most delightfully situated camp it is more than probable that tho active prospecting of claims, engendered by the finds in the Lost Chance, Chrysolite, Fitzgerald and Mid night, will establish, by convincing proof, the truo merit ot oneot our most promising districts. We say most promising for several reasons. It has been characters tic of almost all the camps south of the Giliithat the best paying bodies of oie have been found in limestone formation. hllst tho Turquois district extends west ward into the Dragoons piopcr, the claims that show real merit aro mostly confined to the limestone hills that, extending by a chain of Isolated buttes lrom the extreme southeastern end of tho district, connect by formation with the Dragoons, a short dis tance southeast of Cochise Pass. These limestone hills to the southeast of South Pass are all heavily mineralized, the main indications being an iron cap in the lime stone. Water can be obtained in any of the gulches by shallow wells, and oak tim bgr. of. strong jjrowth.abounds. 4 One of the most important strikes that has yet been made in this district is the find in the tunnel of the Last Chance, situ ated well up on the northeastern end of Defiance Hill. This property is owned by John Collins, who, single-handed, sloped his tunnel thiough an Iron cap that was not very promising, uncovering a low grade carbonate, which improved as ho advanced the work, until, at a distance of twelve feet, he encountered a huge lime boulder which completely filled the tunnel, excepting u nirrow horizontal strata of high grade ore that ran along the scam above the boulder. Working this out, the showing has constantly improved, until at a distrauce of 25 feet from the entrance, tho entire workings tit the tunn are said to be in pay oro with no waste, through which a vertical seam of chloride and na live silver holds a width in excess of 20 inches. Tho oro is all free milling, and Mr. Collins has on the dump about 15 tons of ore that w ill mill upwards of 100 ounces. Lowest assay hud 1C9 ounces. Another good prospect is the Justice, owned by Atchison and Hasklns, a quarter of a mile to the northwes of the Last Chance on the same hill. The face of tunnel is now in over 100 feet in iron stained quartz and broken ledge matter, which has been improving fur the last 20 feet. The Tom Scott and Challenge, owned by Bryant and Hurkholder, on Defiance hill, are two prospects of merit. The for mer has a shalt down 40 feci with the floor in ii soil Munganes-;, and the latter has a sliong ltdgo opened up by ii 30-foot shaft and a 20 toot drift. Woik is to be resumed on these niiues in a few days. The Conteulion, owned by M. C. James, has a 75-foot shaft on a 12-foot ledge, which shows well In mineral. Tho Detlunce is a well known property of merit, and only needs to be worked to make a producing record. The Silver Cloud, on the hill of the same name, in both shaft and tunnel shows a strong ledge, increasing In grade as it en ters tue hill from the gulch. Due south of this the Head Center Iia3 two shafts down on the same ledge. On the east slope of this hill, and just below tle Silver Cloud, Messrs. Hurtong and Cronin have a 35-foot shaft down on the Chrysolite, at which depth the water came in so fast that they were forced to abandon their work at a time when the ledge was showing its best. They have auout six tons of oru out to ihe mouth of the Silver Cloud. About a quarter of u mile from this is the Union, owned by two German!!, who are about re suming work. They have some live shafts down on the ledgo all showing well in mineral, but instead of prosecuting their work upon the ledge, made a mistake, which is too common, by leaving their shafts, started to tunnel from the east face of the hill for the ledge. Tunnel now iu sixty feet. One of the best showings of mineral in the district, though not as high grade as some others, is the Elgin, but as us own ers hold it at uu enormous flguie and tail to develop, it lies dormant. The first nor(h extension of the Elgin is the Plata Verdi, which, at a depth of 100 feet, shows a 15 foot ledge. Next to this to the noith is the Fitzgerald, the oro from which shows a mill record at the Boston Mill of $71.03 to the ton without sorting. This is found below an iron cap which is more continu ous and plainly defined on the surface of the Crescent and Seek No Further, two claims lying just to the west of the Fitz gerald. Work is to be resumed on the Fitzgerald nt once. At the noithcrn end of Turquoise Hill, Messrs. Fly and Chose are steadily devel oping their fine copper prospect, the Mid night, tho oxide ore from which assays from 89 to 53 per cent copper. Vlzlna Consolidated. Wc omit our usual report of progress this week in order to give the following expert report on the iniuc which appeared in the New York Dally Stockholder on February 23d : Mr. H. B. Clifford, ono of our noted mining expels, has, after a most thorough investigation, made a very elaborate and nio-,t excellent report on the property of thu Vizinu Consolidated Mining company. Ho says: "Some, of the finest ore ever ex. tracred fromlhe , mine wag" found at2C0 'feet in depth, and I have every reason-to believe that the ore will continue through under the first strata of the Vizinu, but it will be found deep as a natural raise of the formation will carry it down to at least 500 leet; that the ore exists under the first strata is evident from the surrounding de velopments, and if the entire ground is stratified, as all of the developments iu the camp have shown, then the intrinsic value of the Vizina mine can never be accu rately estimated." In conclusion, Mr. Clifford adds: "Taking it as whole, the Vizina property bids lair to be very pro ductive, and prove a source of great reve nue to tho stockholders, and I would' not be surprised to hear of its being classed as equal if not superior to the mines that are valued at from $10,000,000 to $20,000,000, and if its ore bodies improve' as they have from the ueeinning, the expectations ol the most enthusiastic will be realized. In reply to your last qustion, I must slate that while I do not know wbattberunning expenses of the mine are, there is ample ore in sight to meet all expenses and pay dividends for a long time to come." Bullion output (estimated) $45,000. Cuntentlon Consolidated. Exploration on the 500-foot level has begun, but as yet there have been no es pecial developments made. The Flora Morrison shalt is 75 feet below the 500 station, and will be pushed to the 600 level where a station will be put in and the work of exploring the GOO level of the mine be pushed forward with vigor. The stopes on the 400 level are looking well, and have for tho last two weeks been yielding ore considerably above tho average. The hoisting works will be supplied with water from the new tank the coming week. They have commenced the erection of a carpenter shop at the Flora Morrison shaft, from which point the mine will hereafter receive its timbers. Bullion output for February, $128,000. The company has declared its first dividend,, payable in San Francisco; the amount is-J 25 'cents- per share, aggregating $62,500. lngeritoll. Woik of taking out and piling up ore con tinues as Heretofore. Tne superintendent is waiting for final action by the Boird, in San Francisco, to award the contract and have the ore reduced. A bear movement by outside particB in San Francisco, who evidently desire to frighttra small holders of stock so thut they will sell at lower figures than now rule, is being made. A gentleman here has received two letters from San Francisco; giving the informa tion that the mine is mortgaged to Mr. Conolly for $110,000, ana the dump for $40,000, making a "plaster" of $150,000. Upon inquiring of tho superintendent if such was the 'case, he said, not to his knowledge. A look at the county records does not disclusc such a condition ot af fairs, theretoic we conclude tho report is a bear movement. It has been known all along that the Anglo-California Bank has been advancing money at 10 per cent, to work the mine. This was belter than as sessing, fur ore far in excess of the expen diture was daily being taken out of the mine. Our advice to sm ill owners is, not to be alarmed by such bear reports as above given. Grand Central. The station (or the 600 foot level, now shaft, will be finished in about three days, when sinking will be again resumed. At the old shaft, the drift from the 000 level intersected the ledge at a point 280 feet west of the shaft. Tho ledge at this point is strong and carries an increased percent age of gold over tho upper levels. This is considered a good sigu. The stopes aro all looking and yielding well. The ore, too, is of a better quality than at last report. The mill is working well and to its full ca pacity. The bullion output (estimated) for February was $110,000. It is possible that these figures .nay be increased when the final clear up is reported. Weroneco (San Diego) Sllnlng Co. Work has progressed steadily on the different levels during the week with very tile change from last week's report. On ,.ic 266 level the cross-cnt is still in quartz, ito. The south dritt holds the same in width and appearance. In the north drift the ledge is widening and the ore is higher grade. Old Uunrd. Commenced sinking below the 150-ioot level ; down altogether 163 feet. Some ex- cecdingly rich chloride and carbonate was struck on the hanging wall yesterday. There is also a fine vein on the toot wall. The face of the drifts look about as at last report. Ingle and Ironclad. These mines were bonded by Messrs. Richards, Fields and Itinehart, yesterday, to Percy Thompson, ot Kansas City, for tho sum of $16,000, $1500 being paid down as a forfeit. These are valuable prospects, adjoining the Contact, tho Eagle having a similar contact vein as that mine. Ureeu Cloud. The bottom of the works aro iu a richer grade of ore than found above. The vein is said to be 3 feet wide, all good ore, some of whicli assays up in theJhousands. The stockholders are leelingquite jubilant over the present outlook. Haaset Mine. Gambusinos, or In plain English', ore thieves have been at work in this mine, taking out and packing away an amount of rich ore, estimated at 5 tons by the own ers. An effort should be made to capture these Ishmaclitcs, and have a proper ex ample mado of them. The owners intend starting work upon the mine at an early dv. Omega. The shaft is down. 43 tect, with the bot tom all in ore, assays from whiciigive $170 per ton. This is considered a good mine. Were all the mines that are bond ed actually sold Arizona would be one of tho most prosperous countries in the world. Unfortunately not iioro than one sale, in ten is consumm ated under these bonds. This is one of the reasons why prospect owners are so persistent in their demands for a cash payment upon signing the bonds. Thore is scarce a week pas ses but. we do not read a notice similar to this: "Yesterday, the Great .White Eelephant mine, situate in tho Burro mountains, was bonded to an eastern syndicate (skin the cat would be the more proper term) for the sum of $65,000. This is a new prospect and reported the biggest strike in the territory, and bids fair to rival the Comstouk lode. The shaft is down 20 feet all in' solid ore that assays from a few hundred dollars up into the thousands." The few days term of the bond tun their rapid sands into the lap of time, and the owners of- the Great White Elephant find themselves still the owner of the pet ted animal and the syndicate none the worse off, pecuniarily, for the lapse of the bond. Where forfeit is exacted the owners hare some guar antee that an effort, at least, will be made to comply with the terms of the agreement but not otherwise. THi: PACIFIC BOADM. There are numberless rumors afloat, says the New York Daily Stockhold- er, regarding the much talked of con solidation between the Union and Central Pacific roads, and the fre quent conferences of Messrs. Gould, Dillon and Huntington lend color to a few, although it is known that some of the conferences relate to matters of lesser import. The demands, of the Central Pacific are such that tt would appear the consolidation may not be so near at hand as mai'y suppose. The latest rumors concerning the matter are to the effect that tho Cen tral Pacific ha? demanded, as pre liminary to the proposed consolida ti n, that it shall be made a joint owner of everything west of Ogden, north and south, including, besides the main line, the Oregon Short Line and the Utah Northern. These latter, as is well known, are the most valuable portions of the Union Paci fic's line; and it is, therefore, readily perceived that unless very strong in fluences are brought to bear it will not yield without a struggle. There are indications that in the near future some other arrangement may be made which will overthrow the whole Pacific coast scheme. i:x.AMI.A.TlOX OF I. CALlSIIKIt Charged with Arson. Tho case of the Territory vs. D. Calisher and Adolph Sultan charged with arson, came on for hearing before Judge Wal luce at 1 o'clock this afternoon, the dis trict attorney und Mr. Williams appearing for the prosecution and Messrs. Lewis, Berry aud Ben Goodrich for the defence. There being no testimony against Mr. Sultan and the complaint bemg withdrawn the court, upon motion, ordered that he be disci arged. The motion of the defence to set aside the warrant, on the ground that the com plaint was insufficient, was, by the court, overruled. The district attorney suggested a con tinuance until Monday morning but left the matter with counsel for the'defense. They objected to a continuance and, answering ready, the prosecution called James Kenney as a witness who, being sworn, testified to facts as heretofore stated in the Epitaph. At 3:35 the court adjourned, continuing the case until Mon day at 10 o'clock a. m. LOCAL l'KHNOXAl.M. Mr. Ellis returned to Sonora this morn ing. Col. J. G.

Proceeding of tne Executive Com mittee of the Torabatone llcpnb llcau Club. The meeting was called to order at 8 o'clock p. m., A. O. Wallace chairman, W. Street secretary. J. 0. Dunbar was elected to fill the va cancy in the club caused by the death of Thos. Waterman. On motion of Dr. Mathews it was order ed that this committee call a meeting of the Tombstone itepublican club to be held in the city of Tombstone, Cochise county, Arizona, on Saturday, the eighth day ot April, A. D., 1882, at the hour to be desig nated by them, and that invitation be. ex tended to the republicans of Cochise county to meet with said club at that time for the purpose or organizing the republi can party in Cochise county. It was ordered that the secretary be in vited "to give public notice of this call and invitation by publishing a notice of such resolution in the Epitaph, Nugget and Gold Note. On motion-a committee was appointed to procure a room for the meeting of the club. The secretary was directed to communi cate with as many prominent republicans throughout the county as practicable in reeard to the condition of the party in the county, and in retard to the meeting of republicans at Tombstone on April 8, 1B8.J. The committee then adjourned to meet Thursday, March 0, at 8 o'clock, p. in., in the office ot Wells Spiccr. The Chinese Question. San FKANCisco,March4. A Reno (Nev.) dispatch says Governor John P. Kirkead, of Nevada, issued to-day a proclamation in which he expresses an earnest hope that the state will unite with California and Oregon in giving expression to their views on the subject of Chinese immigration and will urge upon congress the im portance of speedy and favorable action on the bill now before that body. He concludes by saying: "Tho practical unanimity of the vote on the question at the last election in Nevada justifies me in expecting a prompt aud enthusiastic response to the call." LATEST TELEGRAMS. (Special DlapstAhei to tho Zttrxru) tSOOD INDIANS. Particulars or the Hanging of Dead Knot, Daaajr Jim and Hfclppy. Fort Gkant, A. T., March 3. Dead Shot, Dandy Jim and Skippy, Indian scouts, were hanged hero to day in the presence of about 200 per sons, mostly soldiers, for the murder of Capt. Hentig, Sixth cavalry, and his men at Cibicu creek last August, the incidents of which are still fresh in the memory of all. They were tried by a court composed of army officers last November and sentenced to be hung, which was approved by the president who designated March 3, as the day, fgr .the sentence to go into effect. Upon receipt of tho sen tence and the president's action thereon, every precaution was taken to prevent an escape. Each prisoner was confined in a separate cell, se curely locked, and when necessary to allow them out of their cells, were carefully guarded and only one al lowed out at a time. Notwithstand ing the vigilance and precaution ex ercised, Bidy, Jim succeeded in sep arating his shackles some thro weeks ago and made & desperate attempt to escape, but was ffred on by the guard. After running about 500 yards, he was wounded in tho left arm, from the effects of which he was suffering when he appeared upon the gallows. They ate sparingly of the breakfast placed before them this morning, and did not once look in the direction of the gallows. After breakfast, Dandy Jim asked how many hours he had to live, and when told, it caused a marked effect on his appearance. Immediately afterward they were handcuffed, the first time since their confinement, and con ducted back to their cells, from which they ware never again to depart only to die. At 12:20 p. m., the shrill note of the trumpet was heard, which pro claimed that the hour for the execu tion wasnear'bt hand, and the troops assembled in front of their quarters, under arms, and marched to within about twenty yards of the gallows, where the orders promulgating the sentences were read to them. Dur ing this timo tho three doomed men looked for the last time from their' place of confinement, and were conducted to tho gallows which they mounted smilingly, and showed no signs of fear. Tho plat form was reached by steps ascending from the rear. The height from the ground was six feet, with a four foot drop, giving two feet of clearance. The trap door extended the full 'length of tho platform, which was twelve feet. Tho prisoners were ranged along the platform, the rope adjusted, and a mail behind each one to steady him. Their hands and feet were then socurely pinioned, and they wero told that if they had anything to say time would be allowed them. All gave much the same answers, that it was not right to hang them; the white man man had given them good clothes and food, but were now going to take all away from them; l hey were satisfied to dio, as they would meot all their friends gone before them. Dead Shot said he had suffered a good deal in this world, and would be soon happy. The chaplain then offered up a prayer for their souls, and at three min utes past 1 o'clock the black caps were drawn over their heads. The nooses wore examined and at five minutes past one the lever which supported the trap was pulled and the three men were launched into eternity. There was no perceptible struggle, only with Dandy Jim, over whose body a slight tremor passed for a couple of seconds. After hang ing ten minutes the physicians felt their pulse and pronounced life ex tinct. Seven minutes after, the bo dies were cut down and consigned to coffins. There was no excitement whatever and the successful manner in which the affair was managed and conducted was commended by all who witnessed it. The bodies will be interred in the vicinity of this post. Tucson and Otber Topics. Tucson, A.T., March 4. L'he forty Indian scout prisoners at Fort Low ell, who were implicated in the Cibi cu outbreak, will be returned to San Carlos to-day and-sct at liberty. Their capture, detention and transfer has cost the" government over $15,- 000, and although tho evidence was conclusive of their participation in the outbreak, no effort was made to enforce a legal examination into the facts, or any measures adopted to punish them. The general feeling is that a great mistake is made in re turning them to the reservation, as they boasted that the white man did not dare to pnnUh them, and they will go back and act more insolent and become mere unmanageable than ever. They will be under the escort of twenty soldiers. A new schedule for passenger trains has been ordered. Trams coming cast will arrive in Tucson thirty minutes later than now and at Deming at the same timo as now. Trains going west will arrive at Yu ma thirty minutes later than now. Both of these changes will accom modate passengers as it will give breakfast at.six at each place. A large addition is being put up to the railroad hotel here on account of the largely increased travel. The work of changing the Southern Paci fic railroad track from the Cicnega is now going on.
