LOUIS, A thousand carloads of miningr tim bers, machinery and supplies have been received at Kingman station, Arizona, since the 1st of January. William Muir's camp atBlask Moun tain was burglarized, during his ab sence In El Paso, or $200 worth of nia terial. The thieves kindly left Mr, Muir one mattress and one axe. Ind Dem. News from Taos is to the effect that a ereat deal of placer mininer will be done this season on the Rio Grande The entire country is entering: upon an area of progress and development never before known or even hoped for. About ten miles east of Florence and three miles south from the Gila river, near the Florence and Globe road, are being developed several mines that show more than usually good results producing ore of very high grade, and in large quantities. The big eliptical furnace at the Buf falo smelter was blown in on Tuesday morninsr. It is a cormerant in its ca pacity for consuming ore, and requires four men to feed it. The cycloidal blower is a worthy accessory to it, and supplies more wind than a convention of Arizona politicians. Tne new fur nace was working fairly wel' yest9rday and after a few days seasoning will turn out copper very fast. Globe Sil ver .Belt. The Mohawk mine at Schutz Ariz., is down 300 feet The 200 foot level is MiiJ to be opened sufficiently to furnish re for the 30 stamps for 6ix months. rhe mine is being developed and addi tions will be made to the m 11 if neces sary. The mill had but 0 stamps hen Mr. Olive-took possession. The eopine power will handle iuu stamps. The pumping plant will be equally as strong. With the Mohawk's facilities the ores in that section can ba worked to a profit under such management. - At a meeting of the stockholders of the Teel fc Poe Mining Co., held in this ;ity last Monday afternoon, the follow- ng directors were elected: Charles Foe, James H. Tracy, Seaman Field and V. B. Walton. A meeting of the tirectors followed which resulted in he election of Charles Poe, pre-ident and treasurer; James H. Tracy, vice- oresident and Seaman Field, secretary. At this meeting a two years lease was ifiven John A. Deemer, of this city, to work the group of mines owned by the corporation. Headlight. j Without doubt Bisbee is today the nest mining camp in Arizona, and probably one of the best in the West. ts miners are all contented and ousi- ess men are doing well. The Copper Queen, which has made this camo what is, is one of the greatest copper producers in the world, and employs about 1,500 men all told, paying them top wages. This mine's future is brighter than its past. The Copper King, adjoining this great mine, is progressing with its development, and promises to b9 as great a producer as ts sister. With tne Dumereus other promising properties tributary to Bis bee, it is a safe prediction that in the near future the population of Bisbee will ba more than trebled: it is even safe to say that by the dawning of a new century a population or jo,ouu win be drawing their daily subsistence from this camp. Confidence in Arizona mining properties is rapidly becoming established on a firmer basis, and capital, which has been so long tied ud, is now seeking investment in the silver West, and Arizona for the next wo years will be the scene of more xtensive operations in mining than she has ever before experienced. Uillsboro Mines Active work on the Wicks mine was resumed this week aud the mining force will b-3 increased gra-iually i'.o.n now on. I he ore prod nut of t ie mine is pri' cipallv smelting and it is d s.jrned to budijIv the II llsor. i-molt-r with a large proportion of their required daily consumption. Several members of the Uillsboro Smeltinar and Keliniog company are expected here within the next ten days They will come prepared to commence building operations and to some extent to contract for ore. Samp ins: works and storage bins will be first construct ed and ore purchases will ba made long before the furnaces urertajy tor smelt ing. Col. Parker is making the hnal sur vey for the pipe line to the Mesa Del Oro placers and graaing and excavat ing work will follow prornply. T. Seanlon has bougntout the Titas interest in the Butler leae and the firm will now be Spencer, Collard & Seanlon. Work on the shaft is sbow ing up a largd body of ore ami it look as though this lease will be tun making of the Butler mine as we 1 as biing a very profitable one the operators. Scott aud Way lan J are working th Seven-forty, an -xteision to.uth of th Butler, and ara getting ore t hat assays 15 per c-int copper, three to fouroui-ces gold and fifieen ounces silver to tli; ton. Fifteen miners are a', work on the Richmond A rariotd of (ir.-t el ore was shipp d fa-'V mis wee.-c a-ai the Bouanza mi 1 vvin s a-1 in a fe days on a b g run of iniilin- oro from the mine At the Snak 5 all the 'ea?rs a-e r ported as doing u-iusutlly -veil a'd frequent shipments of high graie ore are made. The Brush Heap mines is ?aTd to b shipping a carload of ore a week of average value of about $'2,0OJ per cir. Some others of the Kingston district mines are expected fo start verv soon. The rise in the pi iee of lead will en courage this movement. Sierra Co. Advocate. Black Mountain. More activity prevails in the Blacf Mountain camp than for a year. D. Y. Anderson has recently pur chased several prospects and has begun work, and has let a oO-root shaft con tract. Mr. Francis, another old mining man has consolidated bia own with the claims of Me-srs. Fossand Humphreys, 11 on the v-in with and between the Suool and Mormon mines, has let a contract for 300 feet of shaft work; and on the 24th. sent out to his camp 6600 pounds of laborers' supplies. Messrs. Niles and CLeary have an excellent prospect at the foot of Black Mountain. They have sunk a shaft to feet and find the vein widening and improving in quality. Hundreds of good claims, undevelop ed for the want of capital, are located and have had assessment work done on them. Gold, silver, copper, iron and lead claims are located in the cove, and mountains north and east of Saa Aug ustine Pass. All of these claims are within easy reach of the proposed railroad station, and will furnish enormous tannage to the first railroad which opens a way to market. Ind. Uem. T. X.

The following simple tests will show whether an ore carries any precious metals. Afterwards samples of the ock should be assayed to ascertain the amount of value per ton: Gold Powder, roast if sulphurets are present: grind very fine and wash n pan or spoon; examme with lens: el low particles not solubie in nitric acid. The color of pure gold is bright yellow, tinged with red, Gold may be uistioguisnea irora an otner metals or alloys by the following traits: It is yellow malleble, not acted upon by nit- tric acid. Silver Pure silver is the brightest of meta's, of a beautiful white color and ich luster. Chloride of Silver If suspected in a pulp, harshly rub a bright and wet copper cartridge thereon. If a chlo ride or chloride-bromide of silver, it will whiten toe silver. Uraphite will thus whiten coppor of gold, but can be rubbed off. Copper After roasting the pulp, in tlmateiy mix ana wen Knead with a like quantity of salt and candle grease or any other fat, and ost into the fire when tha characteristic colors first blu9, th-n gre2n will appear. This tea's is be'ter made at night. Galena Blick zinc blend is often mis'aken for ealena. The two may be distinguished by the infallible sign; the powder of galena is black; that of blende: browo or yellow. Mining and bcicnuao Press, New Mexico Mining: Deal. A special d spatch to the Giobs-De- mocrat from Santa Fe N. M.. says Ih biggest cash ceal of mining property in .New Mexico for mat.y years has just been consumma ed. Th-pr ip r:v sold is the great Pac fic group of nold mines at Pinos Altcs, nine miles fl ora Silver City. Tne purchaser n the Mea-st estate, of San Francisco, represented by D. B. Gillette, a mining engineer from California. The mines were owned by Bell fc Stevens, of Pinos A'tos. In cluded in the talo are the Pacific ex tension and Pacific No. 2on the Pacific vein, the Grey Horse and Tip Top, pi ralleland adjacent to the P.icific claims on the west; the Ohio mine. Mountain Key vein: the Minagranlo and ethers, fifteen in all, including the two claims, the Co'arado and th Globe-Democrat mines, owned by the Pacific Gold com pany, of St.-Louis: hlso, three stamp mills and four ranches which control the water supplv. The price is $200,000 spot cash. The new owners hive takea po.ses-iou and will inaugurate extensive improve ments. Toee nr;neo have been operat ed over twenty years. The deepest shaft is down 42 feet, and th --i on; bo dy is almost continuous in the workings for a distance of over a mile along the vein, the ore body ranging from 1 foot 6 inches to feet in width The value of the ore ranges from $10 to 6120 per ton in gold.

How They Expressed Thinselvvs on the Ground at White Oaks. The White Oaks Eagle gives the fol lowing account of Col. C. B. Eddy and party who recently went over the line of the proposed White Oaks railroad, and what they saw and aid. The party of eapit-tiista aud railroad men under the le ul of Mr. C. B. Eddy, who were at White Oa;ts on Fri day and Saturday last, spent Monday of this week investigating the coal field at Salado. Of cour.-e it is difficult to say what im pression has really been made upon the io vestigators, but ihey evinced much interest in what thev saw and seemed to feel that the coal propositioa a S i! ado taken in connect. on vitn h it h is been developed at White O. ks aid what is reasoivib'y erttin t apujar in other te Hons hot eu-oiii prew-h'o l strong attractions to m-fa or:-. Some of the party who are exp -rt c al miners and operators in thi trrcat Pennsylvania li Ids, while admitting that the surfa -e indie t ons are gco-.i, were sti-1 dis;i.se.i t que-tioii the ex tent and c ntiuuiy i'f ihe d -p sit, and suggested furt er investigation with the diamond drills, wli.eh, no doubt, Mr. Eduy will now- soon puce in opera tion to prove o molusi vely ihit tne Ijin coln county co.il fields are everything they have b en represented to b. Tne oecision of this visit is of more than pas-ing concern to the pejple of White Oaks, aud the r. g on hereiiliout and the results of the investigations and observations of th-3 jienilemen composinir that party, as to the b-iwi-ness propriety of c -instructing a rail road fnim El Paso to this point, will be anticipated with no small degree of interest. Upon their dee sion will de pend the qut stion as to whe her or not we are to rea'iz. in the uear future trie hopes of the past seventeen years, that I a road would uj on it and thereby make po-s ble the development of the exhaustles resources of this Iocj.liiy. So many fai urcs, of similar un ler takings to bu Id this roid, have btea experienced that our p- opie h ive, in a large measure, become skeptical and have ro-igned themselves and directed their efforts to the development except by meanssof railroads an' their development has, therefore, been sus pended and must remain at a standstill until this mode of traoi-portatiO'i is Mipplied. This region can go on as it has heretofore done, yielding its gold and adding its rich product to the mon ey supply of the world and, in its way, advance and prosper. But our people are ambitious to see the possibilit is of our dormant industries placed in the way of realization by raans of railrond communication which alone can make thm valuable and a source of profit, not. oily to us. but to the company erap oiel m bringing tnse products to markets where dimands for them are found. We hope th? gentlemen may tied every thing as represented which we believe is more than enouyh to coo met a ii'-st class railroad to El Paso and make Liinouln county on 3 of the richest counties in the territory. COf.. HENRY M. HOIKS Is a capitalist of almost unlimited means within his control. He is a res ident of Scranton, Pa., a banker and a gentleman of most critical observation and judires for himself of the merits of what he investigates. Col. Boies represents a very large clientage of capitalists and what he saw on this visit to New Mexico and the conclu sions he draws from his investigations here wili bea-fruit for or against the railroad proposition now unde- advise ment. We sincerely hope and confi dently believe that his impressions and his report to hi3 friends in the east will bj all that we could desire. W. A. LATHROP Of Wilkes Barre, Pa , is the expert for acd largely interested in the Dele ware and Lackawanna Coal company of Pennsylvania, and whose official re port will be compared with those of former experts who have inspected and reported upon the extent and value of our coal measures, and upon his cbn clusions will largely depend the final results of thff proposition of his party to construct the road from El Paso to this locality.

GEORGE DICKINSON Who represents seve-al banking houses of Xew York and elsewhere, is no novice in the ways of the West, hav ing been for many vears general man ager of the Union Pacific railroad with his ofli.e at Omaha, Nebraska, acd also having baen loca'ed oil the Pacific coa-t for some years. He is distinct ively the practical member of the p-ii ty whose judgment, as to the fea ture of probable success, as a dividend producer, of the proposed road will have much to do with the enlistment of capital for its construction. Mr. Dick inson is the railroad expert of the party J. w. OGDEN Of the party, remained at El Paso and did not visit this locality with his as.-ocia'es. Mr. OgJen was assigned to the investigation oi the subject of the markets for coal, sub.-idies and kindred matters which will be of interest to those wi o propose to invest in the undertaking.
