IN THE CANON I)B OJtO. Construction of tho- Santa Cruz Canal to Proceed. Tho Democratic Pow-wow Opens In Tucson Prominent Candidates For Delegates. Special to Tim Kei-uducan. Tucson, May 14. Pima county is bound to bo tlio banner county for prec ious metals boforo much moto time elapses. The knowledge of tho great mineral resources of Pima county is by no means a now acquisition, but there appears to havo been a fatality against tlio devolopemcnt of mines from tho outset. In somo instances prospects were sold to persons who had never had any exporienco in mining or tho direction of economic developments, and ttio greatest imnginab'o extrava gance prevailed, when it como to the working of properties, as well as gross mismanagement. Such a state of af fairs soon had tho effect of disheartening tlio men putting up tlio monoy, nnd tho prospects wero not doveloped. In other cases outsiders wero sold worthless properties, and tlio venders had no further interest in tiicir success after they got their money. Then again, work on mines was un dertaken whore f heir remoteness from railroad and smelting or milling facili ties, was the cause of the failures, that might, with ordinary good facilities, havo proven gram! successes, the prop erties themselves being ricli ; but tlio time was premature for their develop ment. Sueii failures as occurred may be attributed to somo of tho abovo causes, or to the fact that the parties undertaking tho work had too little money ami depended on securing money from other parties that was never forth coming. Or perhaps in some eases tho mine wns robbed to meet the expenses as tlio work proceeded, when the do velopement work hnd not been done to put tho properties on a producing basis. Thu steady and remarkablo inciense in processes whereby tho precious metals aresaved, audtliecxpcnses of mining re duced to a minimum, is working a vast and very favorable change in the indus try. Solid, substantial men are di reel ing the developments of mines in this country, nud the result cannot hut be favorable to the successful demonstra tion of the fact that the nicest property on earth to own is a mining property that pays. Such properties give a man an increased importance; he feels that ho is adding to the wealth of the world and not reaching in other people's pockets for tho wherewithal to keep tho mare going. Tho initio owner after get ting the property in business shape, is the most independent of men, ho is the envied of all and he is looked up to as a worker of good. An employer of men, a provider for families, andji producer from tho mother earth. Such men are benefactors. Tho most recont develop ment of mines lias occurred in the can yon De Oro, about thirty miles from Tucson, under tho supervision of Cap tain Jack llurgcss well-known through out Arizona, as being particularly well advised In mining matters. Tlio work already accomplished by Captain Burgess mnkes a remarkable shou'inc, and parties who have visited the now camp ate loud in their praises of the mineral development opun to their inspection. Tho mineral bodies are said to be mammoth in proportions, and of good grade, of easy access, and suscepttble of cheap reduction. In connection witli these mines the Tucson smelter will be run, and the ore will be hauled to Tucson, where coke, ond other requisites are obtainable nt reasonably fair liguies. Already a large number of men are emploped nnd everything connected witli tiiesu properties is being energetically pushed in n most business like way. And the near future will see tho Tucson smelter turning out bul lion galoro. Por many years parties acquainted with the mineral indica tions of tho country adjacent to, and in tho Canon Do Oro, hnvo believed that futute would bring to light many lino paying properties in that neighborhood, out their attention to the recion gen erally ended with n favorable express ion, instead of development labor and energy and now I am sorry to say tiiero has been too little of the latter excellent qualities in our mining camps during tho past few years. This now work will bo vastly bene ficial to Tucson as can bo readily ap preciated, and wo hope that ere long tho new enterprise may ucnr tue same relation to Tucson as tlio Mammoth mine does at present, as it will then help to advertise to tho world tho micerol possibilities ot riraa county. The Suntii Crux Ciiniil, Many outBido parties who are inter cstetl in the Santa Cruz ennui undertak ing, nro at present in Tucson, others have been here nud left well satiellcd of tho practicability of tlio canal, and tho immense profit that will accrue from i's construction; It is to be presumed the work will go ahead in spito of any inter nal misunderstandings that may exist within tho ranks of tho intercstetl par ties, as the scheme is a most promising one, nnd disputes nnd differences don't stop the great underflow of wator down the Santa Cruz valley. Neither does it make tlnms ami canals impracticable. The supply or water is demonstrated wherever it is sought for. Pumps with a capacity of 2,000 gallons per minute are supplied from wells 10 feet, square and nil tho indications aro that water lu abiiiidanco is obtainnblo by the liber nl expenditure of money, while tho pro. fits to accrue will bo like tho Dutchman's one percent.

The nnnu of contention is the Chicago plum. end sovcrnl aro reaching for a pole long enough to knock tue persimmon Irom tho tree. The most prominent candi dates from Piino county are Editor Hughes, and Judge Rouse, with several promising dark norses in grooming. Thn tleleention fiotn Pima can hardly bo called a harmonious ono, but honest differences nre healthy and uive birth to good material, and it is to bo hoped that tho unterrifled will select good material as that is about all there is in thn form to be cone through with.

These teams make but ono trip a week and the fifty horses will haul three car loads, or 1)0,000 pounds at a load. Mr. Reynolds has bought all the onyx cliiima in tho group and will probably increase tlio shipment to n carload a day in tiio near luture, as too uemnnti lor tho precious stone seems to be un limited. Tho quarrying of this onyx will give employment to many men, as well as does the freighting to tlio railroad.

Eight MANY TONS OF L0DEST0NE, From Which Can Ro Made tho Finest Steel in tho World, Located Where It Can Be Easily nud Economically Worked and Made to Pay Handsomely. The assertion that tho mineral re sources" ol Arizona havo hardly been touched and aro practically inexhausti ble, is again forcibly Illustrated by the existence of what is probably tho largest body of lodeBtone, or high grado iron ore in tho entire southwest, only a few miles from this city. From this class of oro is manufactured tho finest steel in tho world known as Swcedisli steel. The oio is magnetic, of a dark or black load color, and of con siderable hardness and weight. It at tracts iron fillings, and communicates to iron tho same.propcrty of attraction. Hut its peculiar value consists in Its communicating to a needle the property of taking a direction to tho north and south, a. property of inestimable utility in navigation and surveying. This botiy of oro lies about eight miles north of Phtenix on the road to the Phtenix mine, and tho Arizonn canal passes through the deposit. The vein is from eight to fiftyfeet in thick nets and averages from 75 to 80 per cent of puro iron. In spots as much as half nu acre of this oro is exposed to tlio surface, making it inexpensive to work. Aside from the mines in Pennsyl vania and Alabama, where the veins aro small and the work of getting ore out expensive, and tho vast deposits in southeast Missouri, which is of a low grade, the iron prokucing area of tlio United states is not large; and as noth ing of the kind is being or has ever been worked in the southwest, this vast deposit might prove n bonanza for somo enterprising fellow or corporation. Tho water power of the Arizona canal would furnish sufficient power to work, with little expense, all preliminary work, drilling, etc., and. when needed, power to run mills, foundries and fac tories without number. The develop ment of tho southwestern country will give demand for manufactured iron of all kinds, and the advent of railroads will furnish facilities for eventually shipping iron into California and Mex ico cheaper, by far, that it can bo car ried from Pennsylvania or elsewhere. Iron mining may not, just at present, bo as profitable in Arizona as gold or silver, but witli the advance of civiliza tion, tlio advent of the steam lioree, improved machinery and electrical ap pliances, tho demand for high grade iron will increase in tho southwest until the fortunate possessor of a deposit of this class and extent will have a fortune compared to which the mine of David Morning will sink into insignificance.
