A Senora Mine Sold.
From parties who arrived last evening
1 from Nacesari, an Orb reportor learns
that the Gregg, Normire mining prop
erty, consisting of 94 pertinancos, had
been sold to John A. Cruse, represent
ing the Sonora Investment and Improve
ment company. The price paid for the
property is said to ba $-15,000 in gold
, coin. The property is situated abont
, nine miles from Nacosari where tho
Mocteiuma company are at work.
The claims show up an abundance of
, exceedingly rich copper oro on the sur
face, so far tho the depth oi tho oro
bodies has not been determined, as all
the work has bean done on the surfaco
From panieu who have seen tho prop
erty we learn that if the oro bodies go
down tho mines will bo ono of. the big
feat and richest in the state of Sonora.
. Several other parties wore after tho
; mine and an offer of $40,000 was made
. for it about a week prior to to tho price
, offered by Mr. Cruse.
Mr. Cruse will be iu our city the early
, part of next week, when we hope to bo
able to give our readers somethiug
" , urthr eJIregarding this property and the
intentions of the company.

Good Repo'rts from fhe Soutli Bisbeo
and-Cochise Properties.
Sunday afternoon several specimens
of rock wore brought up from the bot
tom of tho South Ilisbso company's
shaft that 1ms created quite a demand
for that company's stork during tho
past two days. Tho lock ia of u Eoft
formation, composed chiefly of lime,
iron and spar. The whole .bottom of
the ahaft, which is now down to a depth
of 450 feet, is in tlits samo formation;
several small pieces of copper oro have
been found (imbedded iu the formation,
which elearlviiuTictfes tho close" p'rox-'
.... . "... t
lnuiy oi iwi ore uooy, . ,
Ace rding to tho views of over forty
muTcr?, employed in tho Copper Queen
inino who huvo been shown tlio rock,
the foruiutiou is a first class indication
of an oro boy, the same being encoun
tered iu many of the Btopos iu the Queen
company's workings j ut prior to the
finding of tho ore bodies. The speci
mens are on exhibition at tho Turf
saloon, where tiioy may be seen.
From prejont indications, it may not be
be but a few days whon the Onu will have
tbe pleasure of announcing to its. many
readers the opening up a lare lnuiy of
ore on this property. It is currently
reported that the price Qf the stock will
be raised within tho next few days to
thirty or forty cents.
Most encouraging reports corao from
tho Cochise company's propertied. The
shaft is now down to a depth of 140 feet
and this, morning tho eight hour shift
struck into a email body of susphideore.
An aseay of ore found iu the shaft sov
oral days ago bhows six par cent copper
ami $2.50 in gold, besidss eomc silver.
A contract is soon to be let for sinking
the shaft to the 200-foot level.
During the past thirty days over 200,
000 shares of the company's stock has
been sold in this vicinity, and orders for
stock aro being received ttlmort daily by
mail. Tho outlook ia indeed most en
couraging, and a raise in the price of
this stock may bo" looked for at almost
any time. In conversation with Supt
Muheim today, that trontloman ex
pressed himself as satisfied, and stated
that if an oro body is not 'struck within
the next fifty days, all indications which
lmvo heretofore been relied on Mill
prove a failure.
Tho company is already making
arrangements for the erection of a steam
hoist, and is now corresponding with
parties for the purchase of the necessary
machinory.
THE LEAD MARKET.
Mining men aro finding considerable
encouragement in the steady rise of the
lead markot. Even tho most conserva
tive now predict that it will reach the
5-cout limit. It would be impossible to
estimate what could bo accomplished in
the production of tho mineral if the
price reaches five' cents and remains at
that point. Nearly all tho great silver
mines now lying iello will produce a per
cont of lead that would pay tho minor to
open them againv All theso vast inter
ests will undoubtedly becomo product
ive if there is a pretty plain indication
that the price of tho heavy metal will
remain at a substantial figure.
In the mining business it is difliult te
estimate what tho rise in prico of a few
cents means to tho miners and mine
owners. For instauce, if there are a
few dozen mines that can bo operated
on a 4-cent market, thero are probably
100 that would pay to operato on a 5-
cent market. The lory grade ore miuoa
aro in the great majority, aud whore the
market price of a mineral will justify
thoir operation it means thousands and
millions of dollars will be added to the
capital produced.
There ia also considerable encourage
ment in the general stable condition of
the mining stock market. For the past
year the riso in stocks has boon steady.
Month after month they have contin
ued to males hatter showings, until tho
presunt ruling pricos h.ivj boon rj ached.
The mind owner li-n no room f)r com
plaint so far during tho pivsjat year.
Every indication nigHos that the pro
duction of last year will bo augmented
by many millions additional at the close
of tho yuar 180'J.
Those facts should ba kept bforo the
people at all times. Advertising will
attract capital aud capital will develop
the hundreds ot now mines that would
becomo producers at any time if aulfi
ciont capital could Iw applied to develop
thorn. Dover Tiinas.
Tun Papago comity bill is faring

quite probable tho bill will be recom
