Goldfield's first Fourth of July. The
News has been asked to mention several
of the committees for especially good
work, but when nearly all (including th
ladiest worked so hard ami well, it will
probably be best to single none out for
spe cial mention. The townsite company
and business men are cleaning up Alain
street and Manager Barnes of the water
company will see that it is thoroughly
wet down to prevent dust during the
parade and races.

Found in the Jumbo—Good StriKes in
Other Properties.
With reports of strikes of fabulously
rich ore in several parts of the country,
the writer enters with trepidation upon
the task of telling this week's story of
the -Turn ho. Mining men have found the
stories of rich strikes untrue so often that
th* y can hardly be blamed for being
skeptical. Many have doubted what they
heard of Goldfield, but hundreds have
come in and found the actualities twice
as great as the "press reports sent out
from this place. However, if they find
things twice as good as reported this
week a find or solid pure gold will have
to be made
Oil the Vermilyea & Bartlett lease ore
was found this week which assayed
3251,440.55 to the ton—a iittie less
than half pure gold. That was only a
specimen, of course, but Monday after
noon Mr. Vermilyea chiseled out at least
$3000 worth of ore from a streak 1C
inches wale. A pi-ee of the hard rock a
short distance from this rich streak as
sayed $6,243 per ton. Mr. Vermilyea is
a lawyer—a good one—and he gets big
fees, but Ins work with the chisel is now
more remunerative.
The Kernick and Bowes’ lease has a
carload shipment ready which will go
at least $1200 per ton. Out of a hole on
this lease, hx6x4 feet, at least $15,000
worth of ore was taken out. The north
drift at the 50-fool level has 4 feet of rich
ore and other portions of the workings
have lots of $50 to $60 ore.
On the Richard and Cowing lease
there are VC feet of ore in the west drift
which will go above $:50 per ton. It is
reported, but not verified, that Geo.
Cowing has sold his one-fourth interest
in this lease, which runs but four
mold hs, for $l»d00 cash.

Three StriKes at Diamondfield.
This has been a good week for the
mines near Diamondfield, three very
good strikes having been made. Graham
S Urns, and associates uncovered a ledge
ou the Daisy and 4 feet across the ledge
assays on an average $201 to the ton. A
i specimen assay went $1,939.01. This
1 strike had scarcely been made when one
was made by G. J. We sh on the Vernal,
which is even better. The ledge here is
a little over 4 feet wide and the whole is
shipping ore. A streak a foot wide along
the hanging wall will average $800 or
$901) per ton and many of the specimens
show plenty of visible gold. On Wed
nesday from one pound of rock Mr.
Welsh panned gold worth $1.01). On the
Palace claim which adjoins the Daisy on
the south a ledge was uncovered this
week which pans freely all the way
across. Those interested near Diamond

any portion of the district and it is the
opinion of many good miners that seveial
mines will be made with com para
lively little development.
