Wataoa Cvrus C Foutt&ejr BigtAom (From the Quincy (111.) Herald. Mesa, Ariz., Dec. 31. Editors Her ald : This is truly the land of sunshine. They claim here that the sun appears 367 days every year, and one can al most credit it, as I have seen but one cloudy day since my arrival. For one who has just come from the ice and cold of Illinois, it is very hard to real ize that we are in the same country, or that it is midwinter instead of early fall. The farmers are now plowing; for their spring wheat and barley, and roses are blooming' in the gardens. There is nothing- to indicate that win ter is upon ns. The thermometer yes terday showed 87 degrees and it was still warmer to-day (90). There is sel dom a time that would require the need of an overcoat, except, possibly, early in the morning or after sunset. Last week they experienced the cold est weather here in the memory of the oldest inhabitant, this being simply a moderate frost for a few nights. The finest oranges I ever ate came from an orchard just back of our hotel. I have been feasting; on them ever since I came. All arjrree that those raised here are superior to the Califor nia oranges in flavor. Fhrenix is getting to be quite a win- tar resort, owin to its beantifnl cli mate, but to Biy mind it is not equal to this place for uniform temperature in either winter or summer. How many there are tied up in the cold, frosty north who, did they know of the beau tiful weather here, would lose no time in seeking this haven from storms in clemcies incident to northern climes. In our planing for future movements there is no need to pat in a proviso about the weather. The amateur astronomer would go wild with delight here. I doubt if there is a point on tbe globe where the starry firmament is aaore resplendent. Not being a graduate in this branch of sci ence, I will leave said amateur to draw upon his imagination far as pretty a picture as fancy can paint. To my friends with dog and gun, I wish to say that this is paradise. Never before have I had such sport as came to my lot during the past three weeks. Within one hour's drive mere quail can be seen than is to be found in the whole of Adams, Hancock, Brown and Pike counties. The usual size of the coveys encountered is from 50 to 100, and many number 200. We found one covey the other day in the corner of a meadow, and when we fired into them they raised from one end of the field to the other. I woula be afraid to make a gness as to their number, but certainly 300 would be conserrative. George B. Kichards, of Kansas City, and I arrived here on Tuesday morn ing, and it being too lato to start across the desert on that day, W. P. Dunham,- who came over from camp to meet us decided to show us some Rport at cuail shooting. Before going further, I want to state for the benefit of any Quincy ite who may come out here, that if he wants to hunt quail here he must make up his mind, and sooner the better, that he can't kill Arizoua quail with num ber eight shot. They will carry off more shot than a northern duck. To turn to my story; after dinner we hitched up the team, and taking Mrs. Dunham and little son, Jim, went out for a drive, Mr. Kichards and myself taking guns. Whenever we came across quail, Mr. Kichards and I would jump out and bag what we could without following the scattered coveys. In this way, in about two hours, we got thirty one quail, besides several cotton-tails and jack-rabbits. -The next day we drove over the desert to Florence, about forty-five miles, arriving about dark. Ill order to give our team a rest before starting on a forty mile drive over the moun tains, we decided to stop over one day in Florence. About 11 o'clock the next morning we started out for a duck hunt. Ducks winter here and have fine feeding grounds in the alfalfa fields that are being irrigated. The ducks were not flying in our part of the coun try that day, so we turned our atten tion to quails, cotton-tails and Jack rabbits. After about three hours of very exciting sport we started back with 103 quails and a lot of rabbits and two stray ducks. On our return from camp about ten days later we brought a tent along and again put up at Florence for two days. The following morning we drove down south of town about sixteen miles to a big; reservoir in the middle of the dficrt, fed by a large irrigation canal. This is a famous resort for ducks and gtese. After getting oar tent up and ctiokiug bouiething to eat it was aboil 4 o'clock p. in."' From this until dark we had some very fine shooting, and cortinued tbe sport the next morning, bulging forty six ducks. We bad a reviuci' UQUsUsss feklrct iclu.cS oU llUa morning : While out of camp shooting, the coy otes came into camp and ate the breast straps off of the neck-yoke. One they ate snug up to the buckle and of the other they took buckle and all. If you want to hear a serenade composed of all the sounds ever made, you should have heard the songs they sang to us that night. Since returning to this place I have had four fine hunts, the last of which was made day before yesterday. The family drove out about three miles af ter dinner, two of us taking guns, and returned at 4 o'clock with fifty-six quail and several rabbits, hawks and owls. This was certainly the most exciting quail hunt that I ever in dulged in. There has been added zest to the few hours' sport I have described above, on account of the fine showing exhibited by the different mines in the camp, with which I am identified. It seems to be the general opinion among the many prominent mining men whose acquaint ance I have had the pleasure of making on this trip, that, for general forma tion and future possibilities, the prop erties on Scott mountain, in the Min eral Creek district, take precedence over anything in this section, and some decbtreJ that tiiey won Id be only too glad to buy the properties. On our arrival in camp tbe Jimmie's Link tunnel was in 125 feet; it being the intention of the management to drive straight ahead and intercept the ore boJies atgreat depth in the moun tain. If -Ur jrive Mr. Kichards and myself an ocular demonstration of what he knew to be a fact, Mr. Dun ham, the president of the company, who supervises all of the work in per son, had a cross-cut driven to the right from this tunnel at a distance in the mountain of 110 feet, staging that he would cut the vein within from fifteen to twenty feet. At exactly sixteen feet from the main tunnel, and while we were there to see it, the vein was cross cut, showing six feet of solid ore. ' A wiaze was then sunk on this vein to a depth of six feet, and about fifteen tons of ore extracted and saved. Not less than fifty pan tests were made on this ore, and in no case did we fail to find the yellow metal visible to the naked eye. It is the intention of the com pany to continue the tunnel in for a to tal depth of 250 feet that depth has now been reached, March 5, cross-cutting ore at intervals of fifty feet apart. Winzes will then be sunk to a depth of fifty feet, connected by underground drifts, and the work of "stoping" out the ore in large quantities will begin. At tbe present time there is biocned out 110 feet of ore, the lower workings being about 115 feet from grass roots. The Scorpion mine is developing on tbe Jiuimie's Luck vela, on ita property adjoining the Jimmie's Luck mine. The work here is in the shape of an in cline shaft, pitching at an angle of of :t. rtj--ei-rht degrees, on a bauguig wall that appears all the way as smooth as if made to order. The Scorpion property is much higher up the hill than the Jimmie's Luck on account of the cap rock of quartzite. This capping the immense fissure vein has split and filled with mixed por phyry and ore. As in the Jimmie'B Luck, Scott, Tarantula, and other lead ing properties, the best values are found in the porphyry, beginning im mediately under the quartzite. It will be necessary to continue sinking in the Scorpion until we have passed through the can rock (quartzite) and into the the porphyry, which we expect to ac complish within fifty feet of additional work. The future of the Scorpion is as sured and its possibilities fully ap parent on account of the fact that pay ore has been opened in Immense quanti ties on either end of the vein. All of the ore and gangue matter in the Scorpion from grass roots, a distance of 125 feet, shows more, or leas free gold in the pan as a promise of the im mense deposits underneath the quartz ite capping. Ore cars have been ordared for both the Jimmie's Luck and Scorpion, and a whip for hoisting has been erected on the latter property. Some new work is being done on the "Susie D.," one of the mines belong ing to the simmie's Luck Company, and a fine body of ore is being exposed. The "Bonnie Jim," another fine prop erty, also belonging to this company, begins further development immedi ately after Jan. 1. This property makes a very fine showing, both in the strength of its ore bodies and in the chm-acter of its quartz. Mr. Dunham bus secured another property adjoining the Scorpion, called the "Cubra," which he will donate to the Scorpion Gold Mining Company at ouce. I wish all of my Quincy friends could be here to view the substantial evidences 'in sight of this wonderful miuir-j Meld. Consideration for your space prevents me from going into a detailed account of all of the mines, and I must reserve this for the ears of my many friends on my return. The work of surveying for patents on all of my properties in which I am interested will proceed m the early part of 1898. We have one great ad vantage in our district hero that is sadly lacking in many other sections rich in mineral deposits in Arizona, and that is an abundance of water for milling plants and treating of ores. On a gentle grade the ore can be hauled from the Jimmie's Luck minis to the mill in forty minutes, and at a cost not to exceed 50 cants per ton. The Scorpion would require possibly 15 minutes longer, and the cost of transportation would be but little more. Fuel is a scarce article all over Arizona, but inasmuch as crude oils and gasoline are equally if not more satinfactory, timber for fuel is a re quirement easily dispensed with. The Ray Copper Company has lately had all of its properties patented, and 1 understand its extensive concentrating plant will shortly be in operation. It is not expected that this district will ever create any wild excitement (if we can prevent it) to vie with Cripple Creek or Clonuike, but that it, will proceed in a substantial way to develop permanent ore bodies that will yield up Kolul and enduring returns to those who have the good fortune to be in terested. It Bee his to be assured that a railroad will proceed in the near future from Phoenix to Globe. The surveys have been made via Florence and up the Gila Kiver. This road be ing once established, it seems but a question of a short time when a branch line will be extended directly into the Mineral Creek mining district. Tbe main line will be about five miles dis tant. The operation of our camp here is system itself. No drinking or card playing is permitted, and every miner knows just what he has- to do, and at tends to business with alive interest. With best wishes for a prosperous new year to the readers of The Herald, I am, W. E. Nelson. SEMI-OFFICIAL REPORT. The Divers Found the Mas-azina of the Maine Unharmed. New York, Feb. 22. A dispatch to the Herald from Key West says : It is learned, from what may be con sidered a semi-official source, that divers sent down on behalf of the United States to examine the wreck of the battleship Maine have made a preliminary report of the result of their work. Incredible as it may seem, it is said after a partial examina tion of the magaiines of the Maine, divers report the one in which the explosion is supposed to have occurred is intact. According to the correspondent's in formant, the contents of this magazine are unharmed. Therefore, if this re port be true, an entirely different as pect is given to the terrific explosion which brought death and destruction to the Maine.

Men rtr.tl Morses Killed In Battle. In re-giilar battles the proportion of loss among men and horses is quite close, and in band-to-iiand combats of cavalry, as weill s .in sharp artillery en gagements, for every man killed or wounded there is also a dumb warrior entitled toa place beside himon the roll of honor. The Light brigadle, at Bala klava rode in 660 (not 6CC) strong and lost 283 man, but of the 660 horBes, 360 were Shot dcuwn by the Russian guns. In itihe fierce charges? of th? German Uhl ans an! Ouirassiers at Vionville, Marsha-Tour, in 1870, 1,400 men and' 1,600 horses were-killed and wounded. In the fierce artillery contest on the same field 730 men and over 1,000 horses fell around the guns. At Gravelotte, soon after Mars-la-Tour, the artillery light ing wa9 also terrible, and 1,800 horses were shot down around the batteries, though the loss of tihe artillerists was less Uhan 1,000.

"I think," said the lady with the sharp nose, "that it was" "Never mind what you think," inter rupted the lawyer. "We want facts here. We don't care what you think, and we haven't any time to wtste in listening to what you think. Now please tell us where and when it was that you first met this man." Lite witness made no reply. 'Come, come," urged the lawyer. "I demand an answer to my question." Still no response from the witness. "Your Honor," said the lawver. turning to the oourt, "I think I am entitled to an answer to the question I have put." 'The witness will please answer the question," said the court in impressive toneB. "Can't," said the lady. '"Why not?" "The court doesn't care to hear what I think, does it?" "No." "Then there's no use questioning me any further ; I am not a lawyer, I can't talk without thinking." So they called the next witness.
