XiDrroB Minkb:- Your very cuiborcito ac
count of the new sidiug iu "W.-illapai villey
m your last i"sue, was a surprise to your
Kingman readers. 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.

Six men 'iavo been at work on the Cerbat
mill for over two weeks p tst, putting it in
perfect order. 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
