The underground condition ol this
property at the present time is excellent.
A large body of high grade ore has been
developed above the 200 level, and re
cently several carlo ids have been shipped
to the smelter. By a vote of a majority
of the stockholders, at a meeting leld in
New York on November 27th, 1883, the
directors of the Vizint Mining company
were authorized to sell the mine, and at a
meeting ol the directors at Bradford, Pa.,
on September 18th, 18S5, they so sold the
property to H . A. Tweed, of Tombstone,
for the sum of $11,630. By Mr. Tweed
it was deeded 10 Casper Taylor on the
23d of February, 18S6, and the litis is
now in him.
This property is situated about 18
miles from Bacoachi and 65 miles from
the Custom-house, and is considered one
of the best properties in Sonora. It is
developed by iwo tunnels, 1500 feet
apart, one in 500 feet and the other 300,
besides about looo feet in drifts, etc.
The ore is somewhat refractory, yet there
are 1000 tons on the dumps which will

erect and have in operation within the
next sixty days, complete concentrating
works. He will start in with two Frue
concentrators, a 20-hoisepower engine,

increased business demands. The only
wonder is that similar works were not
started in that camp long ago, as there
are many old dumps of ore too low grade
to ship, which will well repay concentra
ting. Beside', the ore is admirably
adapted for concentration.

Observations of an Arizona Man on the Condi
tion of Affairs In California Not a
Flattering Pospect by Any
Tombstone, Oct. 13, 1887.
Editor Epitaph: I passed through
California in the month of September
last. The crops were gond in the north
and middle portion of the State. In the
southern part the grain crops are short,
but there is a fair crop of fruits of all
kinds. Business is brisk in all branches,
especially in real estate. From the
northern counties to San Louis, lands
are selling at a fair valuation a price
that the purchaser has reason to believe
he can make a fair interest on his invest
ment, live in one of the finest climates on
the planet, and raise anything that is
necessary for the human family to eat
or weir. In the southern portion oi the
State it is very different; prices of land
have been boomed up to such a figure
that a man cwuld make twice as much by
invi sling his capital in Uniied Stales
bonds as he could in real estate in that'
part of the country.
From Santa Barbara county south they
are digging up orchards and vineyards
that are coming into bearing, auditing
out towns, town extensions and addi
tions, and suburban districts, to cities on
I found it necessary to stop over at
Indio on the desert on account ol a break
on the railroad, caused by ihe late rains,
or lay over at Pomona in Los Angeles
county. I preferred the I titer place a
there was 20 degrees difference in the
temperature, and by way of killing time
I went into a real estate office and en
quired the price ol land. The agent
told me to get into a buggy at the door
and he would show me the land and give
the price at the same lime. I leplied
that I did not wish to purchase, that I
was laying over on account of a break in
the railroad and simply asked for infor
mation. "That makes no difference," was there
ply; "if I do not sell you a tract of land,
I will make the whole town think tint I
So I got a fifteen mile ride for nothing.
He showed me, and priced lands all the
way from $700 to $1300 per acre. I nat
urally enquired what a man could raise
on that land to make an interest un the
"Raise! Raise! Man alive!'1 said he,
"you are not up to the times raise the
1 told him to drive back to town by
the shortest cut; I wished to go east by
the first train, as I would sooner chance'
120 degrees of heat un the desert than
to stay there and take my chances of
being sent to Stockton with a Los Ange
les county real estate agent. There is
land enough laid out in town lots in Los
Angeles and San Diego counties to sup
ply, every family in California with a
home. In San Diego county they are
selling climate, with a gravelly cactus
plain for a foundation, at from $300 to
$1500 per acre, the purthaser acquiring
title to the land and 200 feet in depth of
atimsphere. The upper strata, not
being quite as dense, is reserved by the
vender for air castles.
There is a time coming when they
will have to raise something besides the
price in that region to pay an interest on
the investment, and the -ooncr interested
parties icalize the fact the bitter for all
concerned except the middle men. 1
would net be surprised if witriin two
years some of the orchards, vineyards
and orange groves that are now being cul
up into streets and puolic squares would
b: leplanted.
Another craze is now agititing the
ininas 01 our brttiiern 01 tne :outh, as
the saying used to be in secession tunes;
they want State division; they must have
State division. It is bound t,i come
some time, and might as well come now.
Tney have been abustd by their brethern
of the north; they have to go more than
half the distance to reach the State
capital. Sacramento is cold and damp
in the winter. All Ihe St ite buildings aie
north of the bay of San Francisco. They
complain of the expense of sending crim
inals to San Quentin and insane persons
to Stockton. 1 think myself the author
ities made a mistake in not butting the
Insane asylum in the southern put of the
State. Newspaper reporters are going
around interviewing leading citizens to
get an expression of opinion on Slats
division for their papers, and if they do
not find the leading citizen, they ask th;
questions and answer them themselves.
It is all the same; few stip to lead and
none to think. They all say it must
come, the only diversity of opinion is,
some think the movement premature.
Better wait, they say, untiL another
strata of climate is sold off, and 'the pop
ulation increased. X. Y. Z.
