Its Mining Properties Are Eapidly Coming to The Front. The Volcano mine which is always mentioned as the first mine in the Stein Peak district has made some very re markable developments during the past two weeks. The ledge or vein of this district run north and south, and the owners of this property have been run ning a drift south from the main shaft for several weeks and the ledge is gradu ally growing wider and a few days since they had drifted a distance of one hun dred and seventy feet. The ledge show ed the remarkable width of fourteen eet, all good paying ore, ore in which hoin silver is lavishly displayed This com pany are now working fourteen men and are shipping large quantities of rich ore to Socorro for reduction. A party of St, Louis Capatalists recently wanted to ob tain a bond for $150,000 on this property but this the owners promptly refused. A party of California speculators are at present looking over this district and the .chances are that they will invest largely in the camp. The Martha mine is an extention of the Volcano, and there has been considerable development made on this property. The mine is looking well and the owners of this claim are working it quite extensively and the property grows better and more promising each day. THE JOHN SMITH is one of the most promising prospects in the district. The character of the ore in this mine is very similar to that of the Volcano. There is a shalt 75 feet in depth on this claim all in ore. A large number of assays taken from the ledge at a depth of 75 feet gave a return of an avenge of $163 per ton. The ledge at the bottom of the shaft is nearly six feet and horn silver can be found in almost every piece. Messrs Williams, Harwood Keating and Dolan, the owners of the property are doing considerable work on the claim. They are making a thorough test of the virtue of the mine all of them being practical miners. One hundred and twenty-five feet south of the main shaft thtyuncovered a ledge four and one half feet in width, the ore of which is thoroughly impregnated with horn silver, The fortunate owners of this promising claim are all deserving men and the Epitaph rejVices at their sucess in the new camp. The Bachelor which lies about 3000 feet from the Volcano has been idle for some time owing to the fact of the wounding of Mr. Wyatt one of the owners of the property. It shows a ledge two feet in width carrying free gold and is verv rich in silver, ine aeptn of this shaft is sixty eight feet and it is a very promising prospect. This is prob ably the best . ' P09R MAN'S PROPERTY. in the district as it is easily worked and the ore is very rich in gold. Mr. Wyatt is at pressnt rapidly recovering from his wounds and work will be at once resum ed. The greatest sirike that has yet been made in this district was made by James Coyle a few days since in a. pros pect owned by himself and two compan ions. The mine is situated about one and one-half miles north.from the John Smith, and the strike is wonderful both in extent and richness. The rock fairly glistens with free gold and assays $1200 in gold and $320 per ton in silver. Coyle is a painstaking miner and not at all ex cited about his rich find but no man knows better than himself, what a mar velous showing there is in the prospect. Jim is working like a beaver on his new bonanza and it is thought that it will prove a fortune to all of the owners. We are glad to hear of Mr. Coyle's good for tune as he is in every way worthy of its enjoyments. Ths property is known as the Way Up and it is generally conceed ed that the mine is a way up one. The Pocohonlas is also a very promising prop erty an- Is developing into a oonanza of no mean order. ThE BEQJ MINE have also recently made a very rich strike the new ledge encountered is two feet i width and very rich in silver. The mine is under the management of M. L. Cal houn of Tombstone who has in his em ploy fifteen men they are making large shipments of ore to the Socorro Smelter and the returns thus far hare been very satisfactory. All in all the Stein Peak mining district bids fair to be the most successful mining country in the south west. The quatity of the ore is such that it can be worked successfuly by the pios pector it being in fact a good camp for the poor man. The work of development goes steadily and successfully on. Every person owiing a claim is dilligently work ing to make it marketable. The mines in the district at present employ upwards of one hundred men, and there is scarce ly a man in camp who has not abid ing faith in the future of the District. TOMBSTONE ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL COPPER PRODUCTION TOR 1886- The Splendid Stowing of Lake Superior District. The Epitaph published a report of the output of copper for 1886, but have now that cfthe agent of the United States Geological Survey: The product of the year, as determined by him, was 156,373,421 pounds of domestic copper, produced as follows: Lake Superior, 79,728,838; Arizona, 15.657,035; Montana- 57,611,622; New Mexico, 558,385; California-, 432,210; Colorado, 409,306; Utah, 300,000; Nev ada, 50,000; Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, 315,719; Southern States, 29, 811; lead deliveries, etc.. 1,282.496 pounds. Total domestic copper, 1 56,373, 421 pounds; from imported pyrites and ores, 4,500; total, including copper from imported pyrites, 160,875,621 pounds. No less than 136,820,943 pounds were turned out by American refining works, including a small quantity of blister ex ported as .such, and small amounts of unrefined copper going directly to con sumers. Deducting from this the ex ports, 19,504,087 pounds, there remain over 117,020,003 pounds available for home consumption, of which about 64, oc 3,000 pounds came from Lake Supe rior, and the remainder, 53,020,030 pounds, from other sources. The important features of the copper trade of the United States in 1 886 have been the continued increase of the out put of Lake Superior, and the falling off of Arizona and Montana; the sharp de cline in the quantities exported, and, above all, which sought the more remu nerative home market. Coupled with this tendency to overlook the home trade in the face of a declining output, is the important fact that the quantity of miscellaneous grades has improved, and that consumers have learned to better utilize relatively lower grades of copper. While the local supply has increased, the consumption in this country has, on the other hand, developed a gain in the most satisfactory manner. A Narrow Ikcapo. A prominent Tombstone Attorney went a visiting a few days since and availiing himself of the first opening in the build ing, deliberately crawled through the transom. The premises were occupied by a two fisted miner who properly re sented this lofty intrusion and made has ty preparations to evict the legal intruder through the chimney. But hapily for the follower of Blackstone alowley preacher of the gospel was an accomplice who prayed in language strong for the diliver ance of his hasty imprudent friend, and an Epitaph reporter was informed that it required a heap of praying to keep the miner from working the pair up into dust.

' A Life Madt Miserable. By dyspepsey is scarcely worth the living. A capricious appetite, heartburn jpiuzeling nervous symptoms, increased action of the heart alter eating, sinKing in the abdomen between meals, and flat ulence after, are among the successive indica of this harrassing complaint. Two things are needful in its removal. A re sort to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, and persistence in its use. These remedial measures being adopted a cure is certain Takon immediately before or after meals this stomachic promotes secretion of the gastric juice, the natural solvent of the food. The nervous and billious sympt oms consequent upon chronic indigestion disappear, as the complaint gradually ycilds to the corrective and invigorating influence of the Bitters. Appetite returns sleep becomes more refreshing and as a sqeuence, the body is efficiently nourish ed, muscular power increases, and the mind grows sanguine. Use the Bitters for chills and fever, and the rheumatism. 13, 1887. J. MYERS & BRO., COR.
