From Mr. Hohttadt who has lived
in Sonora for many years, the Pros
pector learns that these diggings bad
been worked by Mexicans in 1S40. On
both sides of the mountains are evi
dences of extensive work, but they did

high price of provisions is due to the
fact that ranchers have all gone to the
diggings and have planted no crops
and the low prices which ruled all

the small farmers ou the rivers. Flour
at $12 per hundred is not confined to
tlie diggings but at F renter and
Bacuaclii, the same price rules. Beans
sell fur ten cents per pound at these
places and are bard to get at that
