Will Sue for Mining.
The Denver Newt) says: "Tim Kol. ey's widow id on a fair road to becoming 0110 of tlio richest women in tho of most moderate circumstances, tlio over wealth that her husband loft behind having been gobbled up in ono way or another. Sho is now said to be tho owner of one-third of tho entire Moro 110 property, tho aggregate value of tho tho mines being not far from '2,0000003. Judgo Steele, of tho county court, yesterday coal signed an order giving her permission to enter iuto a contract with several attorneys of Denver who will tliis week tile tho llrst papers in a liti gation to establish tho aged lady's rights. Tho suit promises to almost east equal tho J' tun lawsuit, wtitcn consumed several months in the district of court. "Among the prominent people who will bo suod is T. B. Catron of New Mexico, a groat republican leader, formerly a delegate to congress and tho ing real political jwwer of tho torritory. Hon. James Lynch of Trinidad, will also be called upon to explain several of matters in connection with Mrs. Pooloy's rights. Should tho widow-win her case, and her counsel say they tho have groat confidence that she will, sho will not only secure title to tho entire Morenco property, Rod Bandana ami one-third of the famous Aztec, but tho her share of tho profits from those initios oxtendiug over a period of nearly twelve years. As tho Azteo has given its alleged owners over a million dol lars so far. the importance of tho case can be surmised. "Tim Foley was supposed to be one of the richest men in the state at the tirao of his death. Ho engaged freely in mining and had tho best success in Colorado. He rarely if over confided to in anyone, about his aifairs, and even his wifo was unaware of what ho owned or tho revenue which ho derived. Tim died in 1887, leaviug his widow and two infant children. Mrs. Foley hard-x ly realized what road was before her. Tho family had always had plenty aud tho wife had never paid any attention to tho future. Ignorant of her rights and neglecting to seek counsel, she left the entire estate unprotected. There was uo administrator appointed for several years, while in tho mean time tho property slipped rapidly away into unknown hands. Finally a number of so-called creditors had tho ndtninhtiator appointed tj look after tho remnant of the estate. "About this timo Mrs. Foley commenced looking into tne affairs of tho late husband. While rummagiug through his effects stored nway in an old trunk she discovered a batch of legal documents, among which was a contract between her husband, James Lynch and T. B. Catron, by the terms of which Foley was given a third interest in tho Aztec mine in New There was also found among the papers a deed to Foley, conveying tho entire Moreno mines, lying near by tho Aztec aud at this timo ve.ry valuable. At tho timo of Foley's death ho had interests in Leadvillo, which are easily worth today over a million dollar. But by some sort of judicial proceedings the heirs were divested and tho properties went into tho hands of present mining kings. "Tho papers purporting to vest her liufclraud with tho mines were shown by Mrs. Foley to a Denver lawyer, who at ouco pronounced them valid and to all appearances giving him title to home of tho richest gold rock in the territory. The news was a great sur prise to Mrp. Foley, who for" years has been moderately situated. Sho was home timo aco annotated guardian of her two children, Mnry and Mattow Anaelo. both of whom are said to bo quite attractive. In behalf of them and of herself Mrs. Foley camo Into tho court yesterday with a petition re citing briefly the facts as outlined above and permission to enter in n contract with counsel to prosocuto her claims. Judco Steel approved of tho plan to employ Attorneys Thomas J. O'Donnell, Milton Smith, Charles J. Blakeney and R. D. Thompson. As Mrs. Foley has little money the coun sel will go to work upon a contingent feo. "A reprosontativo from Mr. ofllco has returned from New Mexico, whero ho examined tho properties and records affecting tho same. He also submitted a report showing tho returns to be very heavy, runuing considerably over 100,00(8 a year in tho Aztec alone. An accounting will, of course, have to be made of all tho div- . .. idends, declared ever since oiey uiea, ,tt fi :r.:t'Mra.

Tho Azteo is a lodo mine in Colfax county, N. SI. It is on tho east side Baldy monntnin, and has produced a million dollars in gold. Oro is found thoro assaying moro than 100,-0003 a ton, and according io tho ofllcinl treatise on tho Maxwell land grant mining district, 'the mine occurs in shales of the crotaceous series and immediately underlying the Laramio measures. Near it is Black recently discovered, which has produced ore assaying as high as 281,-0005 to tlio ton.' "Tho Azteo is located on tho divide between Utti and Ponil creeks, duo from tho top of Old Baldy moun tain. It has- been worked to a dopth about 500 feet and for 1,500 feet along tho vein. It has a 1,000 foot gravity tramway and a fifty-stamp mill. Frequently streaks aud pockets occur very rich in character aud show largo quantities of wiro gold. "Mrs. Foley's claim is also for the lied Bandana, which is banner mine tho Moreno district, aud upon which 3,000 feet of development work has been dono. Tho vein is very largo aud ore yields about 00$ a ton. From twelve tons upwards a duy are taken out. The Moreno lies near the Bed Bandana, and is one of tho largest in camp. Mrs. Foley claims all of it, with dividends." General Mining News A special from tho City of Mexico says: Alexander (.Boss) Shepard of Washington, D. C, has sold mining properties in Batopilas to an English syndicate for 3,000,000$. Shepard has six months in which to mako tho do-livery, whan, it is said, ho will return Washington. Live Stock Record. Just as we go to press wo are informed by tho local merchants who usually buy the total production of gold dust produced by the dry washers of Hillsboro placers that tho output for August is worth 2,000$. Amid tho dust aro sovon nuggets worth 407$. One of our assayers finds that wator being pumped out of tho Bobtail mino yields 2.25$ in gold t5 the ton. Tho discovery has no further value than going to show tho great richness of the Bobtail property. There was mined last week from the fabulously rich strike ou the Trippo mino an oro pile that is valued at 10,000$. Only llvo miners could bo worked directly on tho vein, owing to lack of development, and those made the grand showing above recorded. Hillsboro Advocate. Tho Casey group of four gold claims in tho Loa Cabezas mining district have changed hands. Yesterday John Casey, who represented his brother in tho deal, cltisod with R. B. Sheldon, of Riverside, California, and tho Star says deeds in escrow wero placed in tho Consolidated National bank, it being understood that 00,000$ is to bo paid tho Casoy brothers for tho properties on which 300 foot deep has leon reached and fully 2,0)0 feet of ground opened up. Frank Mott, the mining ongiueer, who camo over with Messrs. Sheldon and Casoy to wind up the transaction, has examinod tho workings thoroughly. Tho two Riversldo gentlemen have only been in conference with tho Casey's on tho subject about ton days. Thoso that aro familiar with the Casey properties aro satisfied that the gold group is a fine proposition aud that there is good money in the purchaso for tho buyers. It is possible all tho money will be paid by March next, a part payment being made yesterday. Prospector. W. E. Deity who is in charge of the Maricopa copper mines formerly know as tho Osborno group near reports that development work is being rapidly pushed and tho outlook is most promising for the future. Tho shaft is- now down 125 feet and will bo continued to a depth of at least i 500 before a smeltor is erected. Just at tho present time tho company is engaged in placing a good hoist on tho property to facilltato tho development work, aud when fully opened up it will bo time enough to build a smelter. There is, howover, no doubt but that timo will como. The property is woll known, as it has boon located for the last twenty years, but the former owner has always hold it at so high a figure ho could not dispose of it, and did not havo the means to develop it himself. 'Since tho recent boom in min ing matters people stopped scratching nmnnd on tho surface liko a lot of old hons," says Mr. Defty, "but "have gone to mining m !. earuosi.. -- This is not only tho case with this mino, but with lots of them in tho tamo district, and in a short timo Wickonburg will bo heard from in big letters.
