'The heat has become intense at tho smelter nd the men conld not bear up under it. Extra men were put on, but it was no use. Tho heat literally melted thorn down, Work will not be resumed at the furnace till about the 1st September or till cool weather 9t8 in. It is to be rogretted, but what can not be avoided must be endured. There is ijo way of ''standing off" tho Arizona sun, especially when to its heat is added the boat of a lorty-ton furnace, a forty-horse power boiler and a half acre of red-hot- slag. Under these conditions tho temperature becomes decidedly tropical. Work at the mines and pharooal kilns will be continued right along Pinal Drill.

"Workmen are now engaged in grading nd measuring off the ground for a first dass hotel, which is to be built immediately. "Work on the bridge is being pushed ihead as rapidly as passible. There re- uains now about 200 feet of tho old struc- ure on tho Cal foniia side aud about 300 eet on the Arizona side, and some 300 feet a the middle. This is all that remains of ho original bridge 1700 feet long. A bavgo aas been constructed 30x50 feet on which hep'Ie driver and machinery is to be placed and a steamer has been sent for rrom up he river, t. be used in holding the barge in place.

Hardy, the enterprising stage man, will run two four-horse stages bstween Kigmau and Mineral Park and will make two trsp? p3r day if necessary to accommo date visitors to anl from Mineral Park during the celebration. We understand that a large delegation of the railroad employes from tho vicinity of tho Needles will be on hand. W. H. Hardy will make -a reduction in stge faro between Kingman and Mineral Park on the 3d, 4th and 5th of July. On these three days the fare will be four dol lars for the round trip, or two dollars for a single trip. The following additional appointments have been made, viz: Marshal. P. F.
