PHOENIX COAL PROSPECT.
It is reported that the Southern Pa
cific Company, which has been mak
ing extensive exploration on a coal
prosjiect near Phoenix, has abandoned
the work as valueless. A tunnel was
driven in on the ledge -ttK) feet. In the
face of the tunnel, where work was
stopped, there was a mixture of coal
and slate of no particular value. As
this formation had prevailed for some
time further exploration was not
deemed warranted, and the coniuy
decided to quit. The rompanv will
now do some development work on
some coal prospects in Meadows
country north of Gold Hill. Explora
tion will first lie made by drilling.
Rev. Robert Leslie is excctcd home
this week. He has been visiting in
Ohio, Illinoi", Iowa and other slates
during the past six weeks.
