Congress is composed of lower towu and uppor town, lower town comprising tho business and rosi denco portion, in contradistinction to that of tho company's portion of the city, containing tho mills, com pany store, boarding aud lodging houses aud residences of employes. The litio of domarkation between Him two sections of tho town is made dirtinct bv nu iutorvouing opon space. Wo landeu m tho city at v a. m. Sunday, and found tho town alive with tho hum of business. Tho roar of machinery in tho mill, tho la bored breathing of tho hoisting en gines, tho wheeling of oro to tho bins aud of refuse to tho dumps, coupled with business activity in lower town, told us plaiuly that Sunday as tho day of rost is prno tically uukuowu iu tho ininiug camp. At the company's store wo mot tho gonial aud courtoous W. F.

Mr. Staunton is a young mau, but ho is genuine business a through, everything working with clock liko precision uador his super visiou. Mr. Stauntou informed us that the uumber of mon employed is 125, with a pay roll of $30,000 per month. Tho output of tho mine is 120 tons of oro, averaging $20 per ton in valuo, besides tho additional tdtip mont of 25 cars por mouth of high grado ore. Tho mill is a 40-stnmp and runs day and night with the exception of tho first day of each mouth a day for rost and repair. TJo oro is taken from threo shafts. No. 1 is 1,750 foot doop, No. 2, 1,400 fet and No. 3, 1,100 foot. No. I is lighted by oloctricity. A now hoisting plant has boon ordered for the nhaft No. 2. capable of goiug to a depth of 3,000 foot, and in shaft No. 3 a similar hoist will bo placed, capable of hoisting a load of 20,000 pouuds at the rato of 1,000 foot por minute for 3,000 feet depth. Tho water supply is taken from Martinez creek, to tho northwest, raised 500 foot, and pumped a dis tance of ouo milo into tanks, from which thu mine and the tanks are abundantly supplied. Tho company charge tho inhabitants of lowor town Si por mouth for water, which would be considered a fair price in any town. Tho supply is taken from a hvdrant at tho company's store in barrels trundled on their sides to and from the hydrant by the pur chasers, who have their tiekots punched for each barrel taken. All tho supplies of tho company and tho merchandise for tho business mon aro haulod to Congress from Congress Junction by thu company's railroad, a distance of threo miles. The company has a magnificent 56-ton Brooks' oil burning ongino that does tho work. Tho train makes ono trip each way, going down and coming back in tho morning.

At tho cyanide mill 100 tons of tailings aro handled daily, and yet tho capacity of tho mill is insuffi- ciout to keop down the increase, and, as a result, tho company iutnud to enlargo this branch of tho busi- ues?.
