Sstyer, the man who is opening up the famous Churchill property, has just returned from a trip to the East, where he has been making arrangements to finance his proposition, which is recognized in this section as one of the best showings in the country. Mr. Saver, in speaking of our weather here, said that Calo- IfHado had suffered ;i similar drouth jjTnS winter. Little snow’ and rain dave fallen, and at the Buterfly- I Terrible mine, near Tellnride, that is been run by water power, the ater has been so scarce all winter „ lat it was necessary to run by a steam plant. He sa'ys that it has begun to rain some in Colorado now, and he hopes the drouth is broken there. And perhaps we mav get some of the stray moist ure if it ever gets to raining this side of the Mississippi valley. Mr. Saver expects to have things in operation on a little bigger scale at bis <jamp here within the next sixty days. This is good news to the folks hereabouts.

That sad event probably had something to do with their decision to leave Jerome.

A. e in Good Form The Congress hall team is ready to help Prescott amuse a big crowd by a contest on the diamond, May day. Prescott has somewhat the advantage in the contest, as most of Congress boys are new to the nine, and have not played much for a long while. But tnese little things can’t keep them from giving the J i boys of the pints an interesting I | “run for their money.” Will Strengthen the Locals , j W. E.

MARTINEZ, ARIZONA, SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1904. RICH STRIKE AT THE OCTAVE Story Was Told to the Prescott Herald by One Who Recently Visited There The Ore Body Was Found on the 1600-Foot Level and Is Strongly Impregnated With Silvanite and Free Gold —The Company Has Kept the Fact of the Find Very Quiet Reports arc in general circula tion in this city that a fabulously rich strike of ore has been made in the 1600-foot level of the Octave mine, near Stanton, and that the discovery is a sulphide in charac ter, running to five feet across, which is impregnated with silvan ite and free gold ore. The source of this information is a Prescottite who returned from that camp on yesterday morning’s train, and he says that is the general belief at the Octave, says the Prescott Her ald of Wednesday. Several pounds of this high-grade ore has been boxed and shipped to the com pany’s main office at Bradford, Pa., and several miners informed this gentlemen that the strike was true. Oh the other hand no publicity is given this strike by the Octave compbnv, and, being a close cor poration. it is probably guarding the discovery for reasons best known to its interests, in this re spect as well as in the past opera tions of the property. Nothing could be learned as to the value of the ore run into or as to its size The fact, however, of free gold or silvanite prevailing to that depth in that section is in itself a noteworthy event in min ing. The finding of silvanite in this mine is of direct and para mount importance to mining men in Yavapai county, and it will probably revolutionize the indus try in future operations at all points. Taking place, as this strike does, at that depth, a profound impres sion is manifest over the possibil ities of other claims lying on that belt, and in this connection there is a feeling among several owners Santa Fe Excursions The following,excursions on the Santa Fe are worthy of note, the rates being materially lower than the regular fares.

T., at Mo renci from May 11th to 14th, tick ets on sale on certificate plan, one fare for trip to Phoenix from all of adjacent claims that that belt is to be better considered in the future than ever before, and they feel en thusiastic accordingly. Associated with the operations of the past of the Octave nothing whatever could be learned as to its internal affairs, I # 7 but the fact is established, never , the less, that it has of late been a i heavy producer and particularly so j from the ores taken from the deep j est workings. Some reports state ithat the 1300-foot level w r as the ; richest part of the mine and that Hin one month the yield therefrom i would amount to $70,000, and that its bullion to that amount was se cretly shipped away from that camp. It is of general interest in Yav apai county that the Octave is showing so handsomely with- great i depth, as is prevailing today. The impression prevails that thii is not a desirable field in which to con duct mining to a great depth, and the basis of this regard is due to the fact that w’ork has been stopped on several mines when the vein began to pinch or a fault was met with. Wherever practical efforts have been followed and greater depth given, the opposite has re sulted from that established, that this was a surface mining country. ; Take, for instance, the Congress, ; the Octave, the Ora Belle, the j Crown King, the United Verde, I the Penn and many others that ! have reached from 800 to 3000 feet, i and at this depth permanent con ditions in mineral bodies are shown, and of a better grade than on the surface. It is being demon strated that the deeper the mine the better the results, and that the I fallacy of old-time principles in I gophering work is played out. points on the Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix Railway; date of sale May 7th, Bth and 9th; good return ing till June sth.

Practice Game of Ball The Martinez ball boys played a practice game with the Congress nine Sunday afternoon. The score was 23 to 4. If Martinez hadn’t been so badly out of practice it is probable that the score would have been still more one-sided.

[BERT STARR IN HOCK ■ Abducted Girl of Tender I Years I . \ |HE WAS CAUGHT AT TUCSON iHe Will Probably Have a Chance | to Rue His Action Within the Quiet Confines of Yuma i i The latest sensation for these parts comes from Phoenix. Bert Starr, well known in Congress, Wickenburg and the surrounding country, is said to have abducted a thirteen-year-old girl from her home in Phoenix and w’ent with her to Tucson. Maude Barker is the girl’s name, and her father is a miner. They got out of Phoenix slick enough and were not caught until they reached Tucson. They have been placed under arrest and brought back to Phoenix, and, un h.-s Air. Starr proves himself to be | another expert at explaining—yes, j another systematic explainer—he will go over the road to Yuma. The young lady is said to be w r ell grown and quite good looking, and Bert may swear that she is the one who abducted him, but this v.ill i hardly explain this case, for the j young lady had not reached the age of consent. Bert is well known as one of the boys. His wife filed ! a suit for divorce the same day he ran off with the girl, but before she knew of that. Summer Class at Flagstaff Professor A. N. Taylor of the Flagstaff Normal School was a passenger on Wednesday’s north bound train. He has been in the southern part of the Territory in vestigating folks w’ho may wish to take advantage of the summer nor mal at Flagstaff. He reports that he has met with great encourage ment and hopes to have a large class for the summer. This is the second summer that the school has held a summer session, and, the last summer session being so well attended, and such good re i suits were obtained, that it has been deemed wise to repeat the ex periment. The expense will he small and the location of the school at Flagstaff makes it a pleasant summer outing. Any teacher, no matter what his standing, can get benefit out of such session, and all teachers of short experience should make it a point to attend. Big Sandy LooKs Good A. J. Kent; an old-timer in these parts, has been in from the Sun Cloud camp this week. He says that the Santa Rosa, of the Sun Cloud group is looking as fine as anything he had ever had the good fortune to see. Harry Dayton is in charge of the underground work ings. He is well known in this section as one of the best miners in the country and is making every lick count in his work. Kent says that the fine outlook for the Sun Cloud is attracting many pros- . pectors from all parts of the coun try to that section. He believes that will be a producing section in the near future. Mrs. Kent accom panied him to town. Bill Murray a Delegate Ike Ford and Bill Murray went to Phoenix Monday and attended the County Democratic Convention. Mr. Murray was a delegate to the * Territorial Convention, which will meet in Tucson. The boys took in the carnival while they were down, and had a good time. Went to Carnival Miss Mamie and Maggie Francis of Wickenburg went to the carni val at Phoenix this week. They had a good time and say the show was all right. Number 19.
