ITS BENEFIT TO THIS VALLEY Prospect of Dividends From the Tiptop Mine in the Rear Future. Down low in the foot hills of that Old Acroceraimian Mountain, the Uradshaw, the canyons and ridges of which are covered with the tall silvery houghed pine, whose very roots take strength and life from the silver charged earth, has heen formed the new, rich and prosperous mining district known as the Hum- . . . - , . bug. 1 lie adventuresome frontiers- , . .... .c man, who is over witling to sacrifice time, encounter hardships and pri- vations, absent himself from home and dear ons, can he found with pick, hammer and drill, delving far heueath the earth's surface in quest of the precious metals. Several hundred of these AMBITIOUS EXPLORE I:S, S)lue living 111 CUU1IIS rough, Others With HOUght but the broad Canopy of heaven to cover their honest and manly brows while sleeping the peaceful repose that nature allots to all, can be found busy working upon the scores of silver lodes that are tie'.tcd together, like as it were, a seive. The hills are inhabited by wealth which numbers cannot reach, and the very rocks aie held chained and clasped to the bosom of mother earth with threads of silver, which only the ingenuity of man can tin loose. The leads, which are t io numerous to describe Feparatcly, are developed by shafts, tunnels, drifs, etc., from 2(J feet down to 200, and hardly an instance can be recorded where the veins fail to follow well defined walls with gang separating the highly charged ores from the country rock. Knough has been seen thin far to wairaut us i:i the a.-scrtio:i that, to-day, Ar izona has r.o equal iu the richness of her mill- ra.. QrAKTZ MILLS Are being e-tablished at nvaiiable points, an I the yield of bullion daily iuercai.ig. The country is young, but we lir.-d'ct in the next decade money enough will have been res cued fiom its long sleep and dor mant state to pay off the National debt, purchase the grandest navy that ever graced the blue waves of American or European waters, and have a surplus left to lend our neighbors across the way. Enter prising merchants have established houses of trade throughout the dis trict, where the hardy miner can purchase the necessary supplies. Blacksmith shops are numerous. A town has been formed and named Gillette after the gentleman who has had very much to do toward putting the district in shape for the prospector and others who now man age direct the workings of the metal lined hills. The Tiptop Company have an excellent ten stamp mill, with all the late and improved ma chinery requisite for the most REFRACTORY ORES. Their mine, the Tiptop, has brcn developed by over six thousand feet of tunnels, shafts and drift. Sev eral hundred ton of rich chlorides are piled upon the different dumps, and sufficient is now in sight to run their mill for years. At the least calculation, judging from an average of ores heretofore worked, the pro duction will average $60,000 month ly, and allowing $20,000 for ex penses, a dividend can be declared every thirty days of 40 cenj, which .will certainly place the Tiptop stock on its own me: its outside the pale of " wild cat,'' and such as will be sought after a. id hard to obtain. A new mill ut the confluence of Tule creek with the Humbug is one of the probabilities and an in stitution much needed by the prospectoi s for the reduction of their ores, although the Tiptop company seriously con- j template the adding of five more stamps for the accommodation of ciiftoui work. The general average of the ores fr-i ni the many leads of1 the dist-.iet is $200 per ton. Prac tical miners who have had much ex perience in the district unite in de claring the Humbug mines of Yav apai as the nmst promising on the Pacific Coast or in the West, A few shoit years will only be required to give time for the establishing of towns that will number thousands of souls, all of whom will find re muiK-rative employment and become wealthy bonanza kings through the productions of the hidden treasures. Salt River Valley being the great granary of the Territory, will neces sarily be called upon to furnish the breadstuff and either edibles requi site for a large number of inhabi tants with pockets full of the need ful ; thus another channel will be ojtened up to our people whereby they will be enabled to dispose of their large bins of grain, their sweet potatoes, corn and pumpkins, and it certainly seems palpable that Salt Kiver farmers, with all the openings presented for disposing of their sur plus articles of home productions, will be placed in the front rank of prosperity. A great tanning coun try, with rich mines surrounding her every door, and the iron horse ready to tap the center of her broad acres which now bloom with the rose and the lily, cannot but be re garded by us as the Eden of this fair Territory. Fanuers, merchants, miners, contractors, freighters every man who has any interest in the future prospeiity of Arizona and the devel opment of our mines and the great agricultural resources of Maricopa county, shoulil. to do justice to him self and his neighbor, subscribe for an extra copy of the Herald and send it back East to st.ine influential man of means. Money well invested- AN OUTSIDE OPINION. The accounts which reach s from all sections of Arizona are ex ceedingly ei.couraging. The woik of prospecting and development is going steadily on from the extreme northern point of the Territory ad joining the Utah line to the very borders of Sonora. Thus far the happiest results have been accom plished in the neighborhood of Prescott, in the Silver King dis trict, at Castle Dome, in the Globe District, and near Tucson. The promising developments come to us fnom the Oro Blanco mines, South of Tucson, and in the imme diate neighborhood of the Santa Rita mines, which have been made so familiar to our people from the prospecting operations of Col. Boyle. The four million dollars' worth of bullion sent abroad from Arizona last year will very likely, be increased to eight millions the current year. This will place the territory, as treasure producer, he liefore Idaho and on a par with Montana and Utah. Arizona mines are now called regularly on the stock boards at San Francisco and the transactions in them are he, ginning to be quite noticeable. This will have a great effect in in teresting outside capital if these enterprises should prove to be con. ducted on business principles and to have a basis of solid merit. fLos Angeles Herald. GENERAL MERCHANDISE. When the Apache roamed over Arizona transportation was high, ravelling dangerous and the cost of living proportionately great. Now that peace is estahlished prices hava fallen, and the tendency is still downward. Of those who sell cheap E. Irvine & Co. have taken the had in reducing prices ever since they first started in business. They believe that a merchant should he satisfied to make a reas onable profit. At this time they have a large stock on hand which they wish to clear out entirely, and in order to do so they will sell Gro ceries at the lowest market rates, and Dry Goods, Hardware. Tin ware, etc., at a very small advance on cost They have a large stock of Shirting, Sheeting and Prints. The latter they sell at ten cents a yard. Of chewing Tobaccos they have the celebrated Lorillard and Bru nette brands, which heat the world. Of Smoking Tobaccos they have the Durham and Lone Jack. They sell the best of California or Arizona bacon at 28 cents per pound, and ladies' fine dress goods at one dol lar per yard. m 2 ts o cn e-e r3 e- c -I a o a -- sr o 5J in O CO S3 i i o o p.
