Ed. W. Jones expects to devote his
time this winter prosecuting the de
velopment of his mines in the Super
stion district. One of his mines has
already had considerable development
work done and it gives promise of
being as rich any mine in the camp.
The first gold ever extracted from
district seven or eight years ago when
Ed. was running an arastra on this
thin*.
The pleasant home of L. L. Leavitt
_ just east of the city was the scene of
one of the most enjoyable ao-ial events
of the season last Monday afternoon
and evening, the occasion being a
• birthday surprise party tendered to
• Mrs. Lottie Lamb by her mother, Mrs
; Judge Hakes and ber sisters Mrs.
■ Leavitt, Mrs. Johnson and Miss Eflie
• Hakes, The whole affair was a com
plete surprise to Mrs. Lamb, as she
had been kept in blissful ignorance of
! all the elaborate preparations for the
entertainment. A large number of
the relatives and frieuds filled the par
lors and at about two o'clock gathered
around the banquet board which was
laden as sumptuously and well
prepared as ever graced a banquet ta
ble. The afternoon was spent in the
enjoyment of the banquet and in so
cial converse aud the pleasant occasion
elosed with a social dance in the
evening.
The only obstacle so far encounter
ed in the active prosecution ol' mining
operations in the Superstition district
is the shortage of water. This diffi
culty will be overcame in the near
future. There is a good supply of 1
water beneath the surface, as is shown (
by the fact that water in considerable
volume is found in all the shafts at 1
from thirty to sixty feet. The fifteen 1
stamps of the Mammoth are kept j
hammering on marvelously rich ore
on nearly full time.and the entire sup- |
ply of water comes from the working
shafts of the mine. A pumping plant!
on the Salt River, seven or eight miles ' c
distant, however, is thought by some, j r
to offer the easiest solution to the ques- i c
tion of au abundant water supply- It j i
is highly probable that this will be 1 1
done in the not long hereafter. jt

The newly discovered gold fields;
west of McDowell are attracting con-}
siderable attention, £and some claim j
that they will eventually compete! 1
with Goldfield for the honor of being j 1
the richest camp in the territory. (
Large numbers of people are now up *
there and a large scope of country has
already been located. While several (
parties say they have failed to find a 1
color in horning the rock, the assayer <
tells us that all the ore which he ha is
assayed gives highly flattering results. ]
A number of the first locators went
up Monday to begin development
work. It does look as though Mesa *
was to be literally surrounded with (
bonanzas. 1
A custom mill is badly needed in
the Superstition mining district.
Among the scores of mines on which
development work is being prosecuted ‘
to a greater or less extent, not 1
one which would not now amply pay
all expense* of deve! qwient were
there a custom mill there to workup i
the ore as tis taken out.. We under- i
stand there are parties who contem
plate putting up a custom mili there, <
and when this is done the tea’, genu
ine boom of that bonanza camp will
. j
begin.
The organization of a Baptist
Young People’s Society of Christian

Huber Macdonald, son of A. F.
Macdonald, arrived in Mesa last
Thursday from Salt Lake. He came
to look after the new goM fields west
of McDowell, having received and as
sayed some ore from there, and the
assay proving so favorable that he
started at once for Mesa and the
mines.

J A TRYING ORDEAL.
f|
, A trio of young men, including
( !our townsman, Albert P. Stocwman,
j was examined before the Examina
> i tion Committee of the District and
! Supreme Court last week. I his
j Committee includes Judges Camp
'•jbt-.11, Street, Armstrong, Bennett
aud Ainsworth, five of the ablest
lawyers in the Territory, and the
examination to which the appli
cants were subjected, continuing lor
three half days, was unquestion
ably the most technical and critical
to which an applicant for admission
to the Arizona bar was ever sub
jected. In fact it is said to have
been more extended and searching
than that given to applicants before
the Supreme Court of California.
One of the applicants is a graduate
of the law department of Yale, and
yet he fell before the fusilade of
technical legal interrogations. Mr.
Shewman was the only successful
applicant, and he was highly com
plimented by the bar of Phoenix
and his many friends for the sue
cess with which he passed through
the ordeal. He has never taken a
course in a law school nor in a law
office, but is essentially -self made.
His success is a compliment to him
and a just reward for his deter
mination and close application. He
will open an office in this city, in
Vernon & Spragg’s real estate
agency, for the practice of his pro
fession.
The cookhouse at Peterson Bros. ]
camp on Ihe new Highland canal cut
off took fire one night last week. The
cook vacated the burning establish
ment without waiting to arrange her
toilet and the boys turned out without
their overcoats on and quenched the s
fire after some damage had been done, t

Hon. A. -T. Streetor left last Thurs
day for Mexico to look after his large
landed estate near fopolobampo. He
expects to return to our city in the
spring, and will probably be accom
panied by his wife.
Arizona has 1,000 miles of irri.
gating canals and needs more than
one hundred times that many (
insure her complete prosperity.
Arizona Ins 1,000,000 acres of |
land in cultivation and I,ooo’ miles

mile of canal to ev tv 1.000 acres.

Arizona has a population, so
they say, of 80,000 people and a

HOW IS THIS?
Something unique even in these
days of mammoth premium offers, is
the latest effort of Stafford’s Magazine,
a New York monthly of home and
general reading.
The proposition is to send the Mag
azine one year for one dollar, the
regular subscription price; and in ad
dition to send each subscriber fifty
two complete novels during the twelve’ -
months, one each week.
Think of it. You receive a new
and complete novel, by mail, post
paid, every week for fifty-two weeks,
and in addition you get the magazine *
once a month for twelve months, all
for one dollar. It is an offer which
the publishers can only afford to
make in the confident expectation of
etting a hundred thousand new sub
scribers. Among the authors in the
coming series are; Wilkie Collins,
Walter Besai t, Mrs. Oliphant, Mary
Cecil Hay, Florence Marryat. An
thony Trollope, A. Canan Doyle, Miss
Braddon, Captain Marryat, Miss
Thackery and Jules Verne. If you
wish to take advantage of this unusual
opportunity, send one dollar for Staf
ford’s magazine, aurl your first number
ofthe fifty-two novels (one each week)
which you are to receive during the
year will be sent you by return mail.
