Florenc e, February 14, 18T9. i
AVhile Phenix, as I stated in my I
last "notes," is the centre of a lanre j
and growingagricultural section, and !
.neseat 01 government. 01 .uaneopa ; thU ,)0rtion of Arizona, and bo
county, so Florence is the centre of a j trouble is CTer experienced by no
rich and imoortant mining country mal,s m gI..lzirJ!r tuelr 6tock, or of il
and the county seat of Pinal county, j IuniinntioI1 this weird country ritU
Florence is about CO odd miles, iu j Ur jolliest of midnight fires. In a
a straight di-eetion, from Phenix ; ft.w vear3 the yU,, j of vegetable .com
but the man who goes from Phenix j alu, smM right -m and arountl
to Florence by stage must travel 80; , Florcncei supply the demand
as the regular mail stage route is by j fr()m a of the mining districU irt
way of Maricopa Wells. Florence j proxilni,y thereto. There are what
was "started" about ten years ago, j m.,y be termed two railiy ieas0n
and is so called after a sister of Gov- ; lhis section of ArIzona.
ernor R. C. jlcConmck, Avhose lion-
ored name is a liouselioul word in
Arizona. While Florence is, to a
great extent, elevated to the dignity
of a town through ils proximity to a
nnm.bcr of wonderful mines, it is
also surrounded by many hundreds
of acres of excellent larming lands,
all of which may be irrigated by
waters from the Gila.
Tle houses are all built ot adobe
but present a better appearance than
adobe houses generally do. The
streets are laid out at right angles,
and most of the thoroughfares arc
shaded by trees that were planted or
set out simultaneous with the com
niencement of building. There is one
good hotel, three or four boarding
houses, and several stores. The
United Stales Land Oilice for South
ern Arizona is located at Florence,
and the place contains at least 500 in
habitants. The climate is much the
same as that of Phenix and the Salt
Hiver country, except that the cli.
male of the Gila river country is a
little more equable, if anything, than
! tIl:lt of tUliVi,st plains watered by the
! THE JIIXlSC
DISTKKTS ADJACENT TO
I rennik above that Florence is in
the heart of a wonderful mining
country. So it is so far as is at pres
ent developed ; and I doubt not that
the discoveries yet to be made will
astonish the coast. The famous Sil
ver King mine, owened in great part
by Colonel James M. Barney, is near
Florence. This mine is one of the
wonders of Arizona. For many
months the Silver King has produced
all the way from 75,000 to nearly
$100,000 a month with ten stamps. I
sav while here 100,000 pounds of con
centrations that have since assayed
r early 20,000. There is also a fine
piece of property called the Redeem
er mine. There are two mills rimnrng
night and day is this particular'loeul-
it", and enough is on the dumps io
keep the two mills with their fifteen
stamps running for at least a ycar
from the present time. There are on
an average twenty men engaged in
taking out ore from the Silver King,
and enough is taken out to keep foity
stamps iu constant operation.1 Just
befoie arriving at the Silver King
mine is a place called Picket Post,
which may prove a formidable rival
to Florence at no distant day.
THE GLOBE DI STRICT.
Further on over the mountains from
Florenc e, King and Picket Post is an
amazingly rich district called the
Globe. Here quite a settlement has
sprung up, and the people are as or-
j in any mining or agricultural town
in California. Among the most prom-;
! inent, mines in this locality are the
Silver Nuggctt mine, the Imperial
Stonewall Jackson, and many others
of lesser note. Near the Globe dis
trict is mineral creek, showing a very
Jarge number of good leads. A little
way from Picket Post is another lich
district, with any o.uantity of paying
mines. There is one, called !he Union
West, down nearly a hundred feet in.
to rock at limes so rich that it cannot
be crushed. There is a smali mill of
five stamps in operation here. There
are a number of mines in this locali
ty paying their way in milling ore
while developments arc going on
This is only a brief outline of min
ing and milling operations in a por
tion of Arizona near which the
Southern Pacific Railroad will soon
penetrate. This brief outline, how
ever, shows a degree of industry, en
terprise and confidence on the part of
a hardy splendid set of men who have
i braved hostile Indians, Mexican !

AtllilCn.Tl ItAL INFORMATION.
A large portion of the country
claiming Florence as ils centre, hol
ders on the Gila liver, and a irood
many thousamls of acres are or run
be watered from tliU stream, which
runs almost a'l the year round in
many places. The Gila does not at
all compare with the Salt River in
this respect, nor is there one-tenth as
much land susceptible of culivation
and productiveness. Neither is the
soil which is watered by the Gila i;
this section quite so rich as that
around Phenix. But it is good
enough to produce all kinds of fruit
grains and vegetables, and that is
enough. Grass and wood abound in
j The first visitation is a general one
in the spring, and the rams coustinucs
for some weeks and descend all osrer
the territory; then there are rains in
November or December, which
extend from about Maricopa Well
in the west to Tucson and be
yond, and from the Salt river country
to the Sonora line. These latter rain
purify the atmosphere, but seldom
cause a rise in the rivers, or do other
great general good.
TARLE OF DISTANCES.
Florence is a few miles northwest
of the old Butteifield road from Yuma
to Tucson, but the regular mall stages
after leaving Sacator, strike out on a
new road to take in Florence, and do
not touch the old road again until
near what is calle.i Desert Station
The distance from Florence to Phoe
nix is about 80 miles; to Wickenbiug,
about 140; to Prescott, about 220; to
Maricopa Weils, 50 ; to Tucson, a little
more than 70; to Yuma, 230; to the
Globe mining district, via Riverside-,
90 miles. ,
Major Dake, U. 8. Marshal, atvJ
Robert II Walter, deputy, have re
turned from Signal, bringing witfi
them two notorious characters, stage
robbers, whom they safely lodged fa

stood, succeeded in getting away wit U
2!),000 in bullion,- a short tini ag
from Wells Fargo & Co., inNntBa-

plosion of a box of giant powder.
The lergext pi cue of the nnf'ortuuatc
