To the uninitiated or uuinformed the mention of mining stock is at once associate! with speculation or gambling. While the element of erty is located thirty five miles north of Williams and within a mile of the railroad. The stock is owned princi pally by Cocouino county citizens Henry F. Ashurst, Dr. Tyroler and others being interested. The ore is treated by what is known as the George process of smelting. chance is not eliminated from min ing, neither is it eliminated from any act of venture in life, from birth to the grave. "Nothing ventured, noth ing gained.'' is a tri'eaud true saying that applies from a child's first step to the founding of the largest iudus- j trial undertaking. In mining so ! great has l-en the progress, that to-! day there is lees left to chance than ' any other pursuit or industry under the sou. if honestly conducted. With scarcely an exception the leading bus iness men and financial men of the country are today interested in min- i iug in various forms aud success- fully, too.

Not ouly was there mouey iu the drawer, but the rodent had raised the first deposit and had managed to come home with one 85 bill and one ?1 bill. The productiveness of the drawer alarmed the proprietors of the saloon aud yesterday the matter was reported to the police. The t is held for re demption by any one who cau "prove property.

Basket Social at Walnut Grove Net. Over Hundred Dollars. J. N.

On Saturday night the two districts united in a basket social for the benefit of the cemetery in Walnut Grove, the proceeds to lie uted in fencing it. The affair was interspersed with a musical aud literary prgramme, which was quite interesting. Of course every oue knows what a basket social means. A young lady puts up a lunch for two iu a basket and then the bas ket is put up at auction and sold to the highest bidder the purchaser hav ing the privilege of sharing the lunch short visit with his family. He re ports the work of putting iu a com pleie aud up to date metalic circuit system for that city as about com pleted. He also reports things looking much brighter for Jerome, as the smelter has begun to hum again in good old fashion, and coke has lieen coming iu in suciffient quantities to warrant the addition of another train on the U. V. and P. railroad, nhich was pur on to day, making two trams running daily, a thing that has uot beeu done for many months past. The smelter is also doing business at the old stand, 'hree 100-ton jackets having beeu started up within the past few days and two more were to start today, making five 100-ton jack ets i nning full blast day and night. This gives the people of Jerome a great deal of encouragement and there is no doubt that a few more weeks will see the mine and smelter running with bigger forces than ever before. There are several thousand tons of ore on the roasts which has been burned out and are ready for the smelter, while some ore is being taken from the mine and roasted. The large new hoist has also just been started up p-id is working in a very satisafctory n .oner. The Journal-Miner congrat lates Jerome that Two new bills were also introduced. One was by Corbett providing for this appointment by the district attorney of any county in the territory, with the consent of the board of supervis ors, of a county detective having all the powers of a general police officer. He shall have authority to arrest per sons without warrrant. His salary shall not exceed $1500 a year. The other bill was by Kibbey amending the divorce laws. It changes the period of abandonment before a suit for divorce may be hruoght from two years to one. It also makes other than physical cruelty a canse for di vorce. A memorial against ceding a strip from northern Arizona to Utah was adopted in the house. Bernard's stock bill and the bill amending the law so as to make the office of county assessor elective in first second third class counties were passed. A bill providing for the reduction of salaries of county treasurers and district attorneys in fourth, fifth and sixth class counties to $1000 per year and making county recorders of such counties ex-offlcio clerk of the board of supervisors at the same salary, was indefinitely postponed by a vote of 18 to 0. lngalis' bill providing that in conn- her season of wa iug seems to be ties of the first class having an as about over aud wishes for her a long ! valuation of $3,500,000, district and prosperous era. attornevs with the mnnt nf rh an.

What is regarded as one of the most remarkable feats iu the history of American railroading was accom plished Tuesday by the New York Central liues. when they moved 52,981 freight cars. The officials of the road say this breaks all previous records when it is considered that during the day every important pas senger traiu ou the system was run on time. The work was done iu the midst of the severe storm which prevailed the first of the week. The cars moved would make, if placed eud to end, a train 184 miles long.

It can be truth j fully said that Meixco owes most of j her recent material progress to the IRRIGATION ENTERPRISE, J. J. Fisher, who returned a few days ago from an important surveying trip, near Needles. California, in speaking of the enterprise with which he was connected, said he lielieved it would prove a bouauza to those inter ested. The proposition is to irrigate a tract of land embracing between RXO00 and 40.000 acres lying just south of port Mohave, by ditches, flumes, etc.. the water to In taken from the Colorado river. The people who are back of the enterprise are wealthy Michigan ieople who have plenty of means, and if the survey just completed develois the fact that the water can be placed on the ground, work will lie commenced at once. Mr. Fisher says the soil is as tine as ever lay out of doors aud every inch of it will be worth $100 ier acre if it can lie irrigated, and he believes it can. This will furnish homes for quite a MMfed of families aud it is to he hoped it will prove a success.

F. ball, were demonstrated again last Saturday uight when between fifty and sixty couple were present, not withstanding the fact that a grand masquerade ball had been given in the same hall only the night before, aud at which ball it seemed like every dancer in the city was present. On that account the managers of the Sat urday uight social hardly expected that many dancers would put in an appearauce. but those who have been attending these socials have enjoyed them so much that they felt they could uot miss even this one, so, as above stated, they turned out in good numbers and had a fine time. There was no special feature for this occasion, except the music which was furnished by the club's regular orchestra, Mrs. B. H. Smith and Er nest Emanuel, and which is always enjoyed by Prescott dancers. Next Saturday night the social will take the form of a Washington's birth day party, the date being February 21. the day before the anniversary of that notable event, and an appropriate sou veuir of the occasion will be given to each person in attendance. Messrs. G. F. Tinsler, Henry Suder and Frank Lowe, the committee hav ing charge of these socials, have made a grand success of the venture aud the socials will undoubtedly continue to lie a regular weekly feature of the soieal life of Prescott. DON'T' FILL THE BILL The sheriff's office in Prescott re ceived a telegram yesterday afternoon from Nogales that two Mexicaus had lieen arresteu in that city who were thought to lie the two murderers of Goddard and Cox. Today a full de scription of the two suspects was tele graphed to Coder Sheriff Piatt who -ay.- the description does not tally with that of the murderers in some important details, and be is of the be lief that they are not the parties wanted. Sheriff Rolierts. who is in that part of the territory somewhere will proceed to Nogales to take a look at the prisoners as soon as he can be found and notified. It may lie said now that the officers are without any reliable clue or with out any clue which it may be hoped might tie reliable unless the men at Nogales are the ones wanted seems to le very unlikely.
