Then Governor Bliss arose to his full height of six foot seven and declared the controversy closed, and she was closed. The heavy rains of last week, while making drywashing for the time being rather slack, insures an abundance ot water for a long time to come. Solomon & Fox have left the country. They built them a boat and went down the river expecting to wind up in Old Mexico. The Chemehuevis placer mines are not enjoying a Randsburg boom, but nevertheless everybody in the camp ap pears to be making money and the cimp is slowly but surely growing. A number of good quartz veins are producing rich ore and reports of new mines being found are of daily occurrence, A steady growth is to be preferred to a boom which leaves the country poorer than ever.

It is one of the best gold mines in Arizona and it is a shame to allow it to lie idle. It is owned by a Minneapolis, Minnesota, company, but for some reason thev will not work it W H. Lake says the reason he was not indicted on Anson Smith's charge was because he had four or five hundred trees to set out and the jury did not care to take up his time. We believe the real reason is the same as that expressed in the old sa3'ing about dogs refusing to bite certain people. Henry Ashurst, the "Boy orator of Bill Williams," is in Kingman.
