SALT RIVER HERALD.
atmrday, September 21. 1878. TOWN AND COUNTY. From Wash Jacobs who has just returned from the Salt Works, one hundred and twenty miles east of Phenix, we learn that the work of getting out the salt had been com menced. Sixteen vats, fifty feat square have been finished and the water is run in to a depth of eighteen inches. By the time the last Tat has received sufficient water, the first one has been evaporated and the salt re moved. Thus it is seen that none of the salt stream is wasted. The watcs is conveyed through a 1,500 feet flume to the vats. The salt produced is of an excellent quality, equal to the fin est table article. The capacity of the works now is from two to three thous and pounds of salt per day, which can be increased when requir ed. lion n. S. Stevens arrived in Phe nix last Monday evening. lie was a stranger to a large number of our peo ple, and as he walked down the street accompanied by a friend, the morn ing following his arrival those who had never seen the two-termed dele gale were agreeably surprised to see a neatly-dressed gentleman, as they had been led to suppose fierce look ing, red moustached gambler would meet thier gaze. On a visit to our office he explained to our satisfaction the difficulties attendent upon a cor rection of abuses in our postal service, and other matters on which he had been misrepresented. lie will re main in this section about ten days. Postofficea are needed at Camp Reno and the Mormon settlement ten miles east of Tempe. The popula tion at either of these places is large enough to entitle them to this con venience. The permanency of a min ing camp should of course be deter mined before being supplied with a costly service, but in these instances above mentioned the population live by agriculture, have farms in various stages of improvement, and have come to stay. We are informed that grass from Camp McDowell eastward for a hun dred miles is to be found in great abundance. In many places it is four and five feet high and water is plenty. Right here is the stock man's para dise, and as the country is compara tively unknown, here is plenty of room for people who are contemplat ing making their home among us. Asher & Ellis have removed from their former location into the elegant and commodious storeroom in Went worth & Woolseyj new building on Washington street, opposite the north-east corner of the plaza, where they invite their friends aud the pub lic to c:me and see their superb dis play of general merchadisc. The new tonsorial artist Alfred, who has but recently opened in the room adjoining the brewery has no superior in his profession and can not fail togive satisfaction. He is a stranger and asks for a portion of your patronage, and being a thor ough workman hopes to retain a liv ing share. Levi Puts has "arrived from San Diego and occupies a place in the telegraph office at this point Owing to the poor condition of the military telegraph, nearly the entire business of the Territory is repeated at this point. This together with our local business, keeps three operators busy. We call particular attention to the advertisement of J. M. Cotton in this issue of his celebrated Vino del Pais. It is made in your own Territory, and judges pronounce it a better article than that produced in California. Patronise home industry. Sheriff Mowry of Maricopa coun ty, has been doing good work of late in hunting up stage robbers, etc Mowry is a good officer and Mari copa county could not do better than to re-elect such men to ffice. Miner. Rothrock has an advertisement in this issue announcing that he is pre pared to do first class work. lie also has on hand an assortment of Arizona views, which would be an acceptable present to friends back home. Maricopa county is sadly in need of county buildings at Phenix. The coming legislature should lend every aid in this direction, as we expect ome day to see Phenix the Capitol of the Territory. Star. Very likely in the heart of Salt River Valley, probably at Phenix will be the most populous town in the Arizona of the future. Lot Angela Paper. Arizona is the richest Territory in mineral '.in the United State, and the Salt River Herald is the best pap er in Arizona. U. S. Marshal D:ike lias appointed Joseph us Phy of this town, and Geo. L. Turner of McMillcnville, his dep uties in this section. 3Ioncy orders to the amount of $3,276 were issued at the Phenix. postoflice during the week ending on the 14th of Septcmbe. A party of immigrants passed through Ehrenburg on the 27th ult, on their wv to Phcuit. A correspondent at Camp Verde sends us a choice bit of scandal from that vicinity with the request to pub lish it. The writer is evidenlty unac quainted with us or he would have known better than to have sent us such an article, as wc publish a strict ly family paper, and exclude every thing unfit for the household. Please send your communication to the En terprise at Prescott, where it will be appreciated and no doubt published. On Wednesday last James Rcgctte, Thomas Caparo, and Carlos Perrazo were arrested on an information charg ing them with selling liquor to In dians. A hearing was had before Justice Rumburg and there appear ing no evidence against the two form er they were released, the latter being held in f 1,000 bonds for examination. The Enterpise has nominated McClintock, of this paper, for the President of a Zoological Institute Why, John, wc have been at the head of such an institution here for the past seven months, and upon your arrival we will have all our depart ments complete as all we now lack is a jackass. The town at present contains a number of hard characters, and were it not for the watchfulness of Sheriff Mowry and his deputy, Joe Phy, a man would Deserved np for breakfast regularly. These officers deserve the praise of all law-abiding people. An establishment for the manufac ture and repair of harness and saddles, etc., has been opened in the building east of Monohan's stable, and oppo site Thibodo & Thomson's drugstore. This is a business that should have been started here long ago, as its want has often been felt by the farmers. County and Territorial taxes for the year 1S78 are now due. The same become delinquent on the 3d Monday of December, 1878. Geo. E. Mowkt, Phenix. Sept 14, 1878. Collector. II.

His Store is in the old stage office building. New arrivals from various sections of southern California keep pouring into this valley. The number is much larger than would be supposed by any but a close observer. We note in many directions frame buildings going up. This is as it should be.

Wc have just returned from the Cave Creek miniug district, where we glean'. tl the following items: The property of the above named company is situated thirty miles northeast of Phenix, in the .Cave Creek mining "district The mine property consists of the Golden Star, McCormick, and Florence claims. '. It is estimated that the ore lying on the surface will measure 50,000 tons. In this instance nature has exposed to view one of the greatest mines on the Pacific Coast. It is virtually an. en tire mountain of ore, and so located that it can be worked entirely by tun nels, thus saving the cost of hoisting works; one tunnel is now in 110 feet and it is expected the vein will be encountered in thirty feet more, at a depth equal to GOO feet from the sur face, wnere a shall is now being sunK. The ore of this property is similar to that of the famous Vulture mine, near Wickinbcrg. The buildings of the company containing the offices and dining-room arc but temporary, more substantial ones will shortly be commenced. A tramway has been ordered from San Francisco at a cost of 5,000, and will be erected inside of a month. It will be 4.500 feet long, and convey the ore from the mouths of the different t innels to a huse ore bin at the mill. It will take vears of steady labor and constant op eration ot one hundred stamps to make any perceptible impression to ward the exhaustion of the ore bod ies of this company already in sight THE in.L BCTLDrXQ Sits in a ravine at the base of the mountain in which the mine is located. The building is 44 feet wide and C7 feet long, wilh an averasre heiirht of 25 feet. The tram way will empty the ore in a bin 14 x 24. For the first month the ore will be brought down in wagons over an excellent road now in course of con struction, and upon completion of the tramway the road will be used in conveying heavy timbers to the mine. From theT bin tile ore passes through a Blake Ore Crusher, whence it is fed to the batteries by a self-feeder, an automatic auxiliary indispensable to systematic and economical quartz milling. Over 60,000 feet of lumber were used in the construction of the main building. The machinery con sists of a boiler having 50-liorse now. er, accompanied by a splendidly built and finished engine. The bat tery consists of ten Mumps weighing W)6 pounds each, one Blake crusher and the self-feeder mentioned tibovc. The mill ts also supplied with two Frue concentrators, which alone will save enoush to pay half the mnning expenses "of the "mill. Twenty-five per cent of the value of the ore will !c saved by thie concentrators, that would otherwise be lost in the tail ings. These concent rates will be worked in a White's furnace, shortly to le added to this already complete mill. The entire weight of machin. cry is 100.000 pounds," the freight up on which alone cost the snug sum of ?7,000. The mill cost lully frKJ.UUt). The battery will have a capacity of twenty ton's every twenty-four hours, or two tons of quartz per stamp. The entire mahinery was furnished bythe Pacific Foundry, San Francisco. II. W. Bourdwell is the superintend ent of construction; this gentleman has had many years of experience in building milts "on this coast and his work is a model of mill architecture. The grading for another mill of forty stamps, for the same property, will soon be commenced and the day is not far distant when the operations of the Golden Star Mining Company will overshadow the largest opera tions ever undertaken in Arizona. The enterprise will be of much bene fit to the Territory in general and this town in partic ular, and too much credit cannot lc given to Wm. B. Hellings, the promoter of the enter prise, and the coming years of steady Golden Star bullion shipments will record the the wisdom of his exten sive, systematic and fearless opera tions. 1 here is no man in Arizona but wishes the Golden Star Company the fullest success, and not one but believes they will attain it The operations will be watched with in terest and will be truthfully chron- icled from time to time in the col umns of the Salt River Herald.
