" In il4rerview. with Mining Engin
eer Oi' O. McNamara he gave the Tki-BcsR-iBiio
tbe following informs tionTn
reitftioa to that part of the Pioneer
Mining District that lies between Min
eral '-Hill and Box Canyon.
' "Yes," aid Mr. McNamara, "Mr. E.
T.'SmUh and myself have secured by
pttrohase and located 14 claims, aggre.
gating over 500 feet of development
work in the way of shafts, tunnels,
dHfis, etc.
" 14 In this district there is one vein fully
100 feet wide cutting the country froaa
ocrthwest to southeast and traceaUa
Iry the croppings for over two milea.
This lode carries copper in sulphareta
and will average from 4 per cent t 6.
percent with about $10 in gold-and
silver; this ore can be readily concen
trated 20 to 30 into' one. I have- not
yet made assays of the concentrates,
but if it holds its valuea it. can be
readily seen that the property can. be
made to pay from the start.
"We also have a group of Eve claims
carrying carbonates of load and galena.
Thesf veins are from & to feet v?irt
and gave ly (ire as-saj from lO'pt-r cent
to CO per cent lead with a biutill value
in cold aud silver.
"But in my judgment th-a best prop
erty in the district is a discovery made
by myself aud 'iaovrn a the Mint
Morgan. Breaki ng a piece of orutuary
looking float tb at proved to be almost
pure chalcopyrete,. led to this dis
covery, and wi th the aide of Mv. J. H .
Brown the voio was soon found and
proved to be fully 30 feet wide.
Average st-.mples of the eroppinga
yielded by ussay: copper 21 80 pe cent,
gold 1.60 ounces, silver 0.50 ounces,
making a total value of $117.24 pec
ton. A -force of men will be put to
work at once en Shis claim and tbe
Minla Morgan will undoubtedly prove
a pay mine from the start.
"Throughout this section there is
also considerable gold bearing quartz
which, however, is notfree milling but
amenable to-cyanide treatment.
"There was a great rush to this dis
trict and coaaiderable development
was done during the halcyon days of
the Silver King, 15 or 23 years ago. On
the decline of silver work was discon
tinued, aud indeed many of the prop-.
ertiea were abandoned.
"Ia these days little attention was
puid to gold quartz in Pioneer District,,
unless it was property free milling. Un
fortunately the gold bearing rock will
not plate 20 per cent of it value.
You see 15, years ago very little was
known about the cyanide treatment;,
in fact, it bas only been in the laat fonr
wr five years that it has been successful

Output of the Klondike.
No one will ever know exactly how
much gold was taken from the Klon
dike fields the past season. Since the
English government imposed a royalty
the miners hare adopted all sorts of
ruses to evade tbe law. It is rather
difficult to dodge taxes, but it is more
difficult to dodge a bad cold and the
crin at this time of year. When the
system Is weakened by such attacks,
and the blood becomes thin and im
poverished, the best medicine to take
is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. This
remedy builds up the system. Besides
recrulatinir digestion, it overcomes
constipation. It is good for the kid
neys and liver, too, stimulating these
organs into the proper performance of
their functions. Nothing is so good
or malaria.

Another Railroad Yarn-,
IP rom the Tuoaoo Star.
An El Paso paper claims that the
Southern. Pacifie company will attempt
to shorten its main line west of El Pa
so. In connection with the punchaae of
the Arizona and New Mexico, the road
intends building a route which is to
commence at Sentinel station, Arizona,
near the California line.
It extends through the Buckeye dis
trict of the Gila valley, into the Salt
rirer valley and through Phoenix and
tbe towns of Tempe and Mesa across
the Sacaton piain to Florence, up the
Gila throngh Safford, Pima and upper
Oila valley towns,, crossing tbe Gila
Valley,. Globe and Northern railroad at
Doocan and to a connection somewhere
in New Mexico with the main line.
While the road if built would-tap a
rich section of countrythere is.no rea
son for believing that such a road will
be built for several years. Ultimately
railway lines will touch all of the
porats named,, and it is to be hoped
that as a natural center for. trade Tuc

rail connection with the nearby settle
