Our objective point now was the
Helen line works. To reach it
we had to ascend a mountain which
scorned to us higher than that
upon which Satan took Christ to
make a real estate dicker. From
the base to apex, it was a hard
road to travel. Every step we
took, caused apprehensions lest
our knee would knock out teeth,
and reaching our goal, we ferret
ed that a hoist was not provided
for anything but pay dirt. Finally
we got there, but didn't feel a bit
like Eli. Here we were welcomed
by A. N. Anderson, (Charley I
and Mr. Caruthers, the foreman,
the latter of whom yielded jileas
antly to our pumping process.
Where they (and we) were, was a
!ukor hoLt, put in placo to con
vey from the depths ot tho tunnel,
ore destined to wear eagles and
contribute to the wealth of pro
ducers and purchasers. The tun
nel is to bo 750 ieet from it's
mouth to intersection with the
shaft, ot which distance, about
170 feet are penetrated. The shaft
is situate 257 feet from the bottom
of the tunnel. The mouth f the
tuniu l is four feet wide, and runs
clear through on the line of the
ore carrying vein, hence all the
ore extracted is of good paying
character, and the vein widens as
the distance towards the shaft in
criases. Trails were being laid
in the tunnel, which, when com
inexhaustible. Contiguous mines
also promised as rich yields as

success they meet with could till
the measure of their deserts and

keeping up the assessment work on
the two groups ot mines, over 40
in number. Tho frequent raids
of the murderous Apache Indians
have so deterred capitalists from
making investments in that region
that many very valuable claims
have lain idle for lack of devclope-
ment capital, but the elective war-

dered the country entirely sate,

Finally, as intelligence gained in
power, the Pope was riven to un
derstand that while his authority
should be respected as the head of
the Church, ho was but as other
men when he stepped beyond the
palo. The Pope gritted his teeth,
but was powerless to enforce his
plans. Of late, he has shown
that in the long inter. m, he has
not been napping, but. in one ot his
late bulls, exhibits stubborness if
not tren 5th in his boms, averr
ing, as he does, that temporal as
well as spiritual power is a bou
to be accorded him, not only in
Italy, but the world.

It was stretching credulity much
to insist that the Pope was immac
ulate. In the presence ot the
fact that those who had worn the
sacred ermine had lathered infa
mous progeny, and worn hands be
smeared with innocent blood, that
behind visible iniquity stood in
visible piety and rightousness, was
a severe test of severe credulity.
The Pope, as was, or is, or as is
to be, is restless. The old codger
now on what ho calls or estimates
his throne, again asserts his au
thority, and Italy seems to be
weakening. He wants to bo re
cognized as a temporal as well as a
spiritual power, to make every
body kiss his too at his bidding.
