We are all glad Mr. Hardy has built a siding, and your account of it ia true with tho following plight ex captions: Thero is not tho first indication of a sidiug being put in; Mr. Hardy 1ihb not built a road to it, nor do we btllovo the rail rosd comp .ny has any intention of pnttiu-. in a sidiug until they mako improvements where thej' are much more noedfd than in tho Wallsp i) valley. And while we would only ba too glad to seo a siding built (or anything ele that would benefit tho min ers), we would first like to see the oom pany do son o h ng for Kingman in tho w iy of a depot or platform. At pres ent we would ro thankful for a platform. With one exception this is the best freight station on the road, and yet wo have been sadly negloited in the way of improvements, but wo manage to get along without them and business goes on just as usnal. "We note an improvement in business and thin has ben a profitable weak for the mer?. chants. Arrangomcnti have been perfected for the transfer "f all freight across tho river with out delay, thi ste.nnor Mohave having been chartered for that purposo, Messrs. CInmborlain, Hall and Allyuo left on Monday night's train for Albuquor que. Kichard, Corin & Co. shipped a car of ore to the Pueblo smelling works this week. Their agent, Mr. Foreman, is evidently get ting his work in on tlx buys, as ho has al ready bought and shipped several cars of ore. L. J. Ijassell came in from the Deen mine Thursday and reports everything ready to commence hoisting ore, Billy Richards came down from the Amer ican Flag miiu on Tuesday to ship a oar of ore. Messrs. Roe, Elliott and Luthy. who late ly leisod tho PaymastGmine, have already put tho main shaft in order and put in a platform above tho water level. Tiey have now a forc6 of eight men at work stoping and drifting iu the upper levels under the foromanship of Henry Elfors. Tho force will propably be increased very shortly. We need two or three smelters like thr cue at Benson in this county. Austin arlS five other men are grading road up to the timber in the charcoal canon near Cerbat, for the purpose of sup plying the mill with wood. Joaquin Acosta and three Mexicans have already com menced putting in wood to the mill. The now smelter at Planet is in running order and already ten tons of bullion hav been turned out. There are over fifty men employed in and around the smelter. B. H. Spear has sold his interest in the Paymaster mine to Elliott, Roe and Luthy "W. II. Hardy has eight men at work on the Infallible mine at Stockton. The new tunnel which-ho started a short whilo since is iu about 120 feet and is being driven tho rate of six to eight feet per day. there is any one thing better than another that Hardy is good for it is driving in tunnel. It would be -well for this county if there were more men in it of like enterprise Richard Hicks and James Oliver, two Cornish miners and recent acquisitions to this district, have based the Pennsylvania mine in Todd Basin of Capt. Layne for one year, and will at onoo start to work on it rhov have also bonded the mine for the same time for the sum of 15,000. "We have no doubt that if the mine is proporly and economically worked that the nurchaso price oa i be gotten.out of the oro extracted in six ninths, in this connection wo may remark that there are hundreds of just such claims as tbo Pennsylvania in Mohave coun ty ready for parties to lease on very favor able torms. "Wo have more mines than wg have men to work them. June 2d. 1 884. 10 o'clock, a. m. M. W.

The mill started up on Thuisday with about 160 tons of ore to coinuieuoe on, Among tho shipments al ready contracted for by this mill we note twenty tons from the C. O. D. mine, be sides several smaller lots from mines in tho s uue basin, five tons of ore from Joe Lab aree's cl im near Htocktou. wich consider able second grade ore, fifteen of twenty tons from the Prosperity mine in Todd Basin, owned by Caldwell Wright and J. P. Layne. while Win, Shrman sends a couple of tons f mm the southorn extension of the same mine as a samplti. In addition to this there are about 80 tons of ore from the Cerbat mine already at the mill and about ;"0 tons at the Paymaster ready to be hauled down. Many other miners have nromisad to send in shipments of ore and by next week Cerbat will present quite a lively ap pearance. rho proprietors of the mill are well and favorably known in this commu nity afld have had a large and varied ex perience in milling orea, and if they cannot mako a Buccess of it we dou't know w';o oan. V'e wish thenf all the suooess possible, and in conclusion say, that the gentlemen who havo leased tho Cerbat mill mean business; uy know what they are .about: thov pro- poso to give the hoys a fair and square de d on evory ocoision, nd they rromibo never to hang un the staip3 as long as they have i pound of oro to run on.
