Sonic months ago we j published an account of this com pany and, from information then at baud, predicted the payment of a divi- J dend by the corporation before the cad of the year. We are pleased to note the fulfillment of our prediction, not because the prediction belongs to us, but for the reason that the eastern owners of the stock arc having a practical and profitable demonstration of Arizona's wealth. Nearly all of 'be Golden Star sto.k is owned in 1 1 Uilailelpliia ami vicinity, but the company's oiliuc is in this city. We are informed that the ore in sight warrants the statement that the mine will pay dividends for some years to come. The a Hairs of the company arc managed as men manage their own private business. The company will ship immediate ly a wire tramway for delivering the ores trom the mine to the mill. The . capacity of the tramway is 240 tons every twenty-four hours, aud the cost of deliver will be about 12' cents per ton.
