Itwu a source of pleasure yesterday to^vltlt the real estate dealers and hear what^they had U^ say. The complaints of lack^of business were so few that they rut a^very small figure. One of the important^events of the week, and probably the moat^Important, was the order issued yesterday^to Engineer Haven, of the Northern Pa^^cific, by JSupt M C. MMIV u^ MMMM^the construction of a bridge over the track,^near the gas works, Into the (.rand IMMM^addition. This piece of work has been in^contemplation for over a year, but action^was deferred owing to a disagreement as to^who would bear the expense. Hut now the^railroad company has come smilingly to^the front and will pay for It itself. The^bridge will be forty feet wide, the probable^cost of which is estimated at 812,000. It^will l^* constructed so that trains may pas*^underneath and will be suspended from the^bankH M either side. Immediately follow^lug its completion the street car company^will extend iU track down Main street,^cross the bridge and If areata thf ^iraud^avenue and Flower Garden additions. For^this purpose S20t(J00 has l^*en rained.

The building enterprises are^increasing with astonishing rapidity. An^important item in this connection is that^Wallace, Thonihurg A- Oo, have ^cc* md^814,1100 from the owners of the Flow*fffW^addition to erect brick residences thereon,^none of which are to eoet U ss than $:t,(M^^Further instructions are given not to sell a^lot without a building contract being as^mired U^ follow The purchase of ground^The result is that at pnsent eight hand^tome private .esidences are in course, ot^construction.

On this inen^lion there seem to tie no doub't and the agi^tatmn for a first class caravansary, eotj^uiensurate with the growing Importance of^Helena is daily increasing. A Main street^real estate dealer laid yesterday^^^it U true Helena has a number^of hotels, but none of them can he pi need^tn the category ot tirst class houses. It is^with difficulty at times that a stranger can^aerure a room In one of them. Tin v art^always tilled up.

Frompresent indications it looks as^though Helena will have a first class hotel^In a short time. There is a movement on^foot now, headed by S. t\ Ashby, T. C.^Power, and other capitalists of the same^school, to start a subscription which is in^tended to be donated to the roan or com^pany who will build a #:too.ooo hotel. It Is^generally believed that half this amount^can be raised by popular subscription. The^object In making this Inducement la to^show eastern capitalists that the people of^Helena have not only abiding faith in the^permanence of Helena, but to illustrate^that a hotel is needed and will pay.

Afew days since Mr. C. A. Hrophy, of^Chlcairo, visited this city for the purpose of^Introducing a new lubricant known at the^Helmet Solid Oil. To attain this end he^called on the A.

He was quickly escorted to the^works of the Helena steam Tower and^LlKht company, where fie niachlnet are^numerous and running a* high speed, and^often with hot boxes. With permission of
Theweek in mining circles has been an^unusually interesting one. At no previous^time have there been assembled in Helena^so many prominent operators representing^so many different fields of operation. And^this Is as it should t^e. Helena Is the cen^^ter of all territorial business, and it Is but^natural that all persons having business to^transact should collect here. M. Louis has^b#^en well represented and there is not an^outside city in ti e I nited Mates whose^people are more interested In Montana's^mines than those, of the Missouri metropo^^lis. They are securing the big properties^of Montana and have been very foitunate^In their Montana Investments. The Uranlte^Mountain and Hi Metallic mines have made^a number of them millionaires, and the tea^frtnetted and West Granite afopeftiea^are the principal attractions just now. The^important event of the week was the West^(Iranlte deal, by which a syndicate com-
Baed partly of the directors of the (iranite^ountaln and Itt-Metalllc companies ac^^quired a heavy interest in the W^t tirnite^mines. A clouded west side mind has mis^^interpreted the meaning of what was real^ly done at the meeting and wired President^lluinsey to tind out it his company bad^purchaaed outright the West Granite prop^^erties. It waa reported that he replied in^the negative, which was eminently correct.^Nobody has vet stated that the W^ -t^Granite group has been sold. Hut $150,000^waa advanced by those people, and is now^In the First National bank to be used upon^therenrgauiz itlon of the company under^the name of Kiizabeth.
Theprospects for mining activity in the^immediate vicinity of Helena are very en^^couraging. The gathering together of the^Whitlatcti-I nion group of mines, four^miles above the city , means a great deal for^Helena, and these mines which at one tune^were Helena's sole reliance, will soon be^develoned and the hidden treasure is^I r mght out

Asyndicate was formed yesterday, com^posed of Messrs. John T. Murphy, Henry^Klein, A. M. llolter, t*. T, Haueer, 0. K.^Weils, J. K Pardee, rapt. j, 11 PImmm^and T. H Kleiuschmidt, to purchase and^develop the Kointh of July mine in the^Okanagau country, home good looking^ore from this prospect has l^een on exbibl-^tii.n Ht the Cosmopolitan hotel this week,^and attracted some attention. In behalf of^the syndicate ( apt Hummer will go to^^day or to morrow to examine the mine and^report. Should his report corroborate what^has heen previously said of the mine, the^syndicate will purchase it and organize a^company for Its development. The present^owners are Patrick ('lark, of the I'oorinan,^Sam I Silverman and Messrs. Hussey .V^Taylor of Spokane Falls. Silverman has^In en in town a few days, and y esterday^had four issays made by A. W. Hand. The^surface cropplngs, whicn are said to be ex^^posed for HOO feet, assayed i*0^ I ounces sil^^ver. A piece from the bottom of the shaft,^which is eighty-five feet deep, showed^HOK 4 ounces.

JudgeJ. G Sanders was asked yester^^day what he knew about the history of the^Whitlatch-Union mine-*. ^Well,^ he re^^plied. ^1 was Jim WhitlatchN secretary^when those mines were booming. I see^that work Is to be resumed. There Is no^doubt they will pay big if properly worked.^When Union No. Ii was down to a eunsid-^erahle depth, owing to the lack of sy ^t^iii^in working It, the expenses wep^ very^heavy and profits nominal. 1 think if a
Mr.Wm. Harrison, general manager of^the works, the oil was applied to several^bearings and the main working part* of^their Corliss engine. This was over a^week ago, and after running twelve hours^nightly all the hearings and boxes where^the Helmet Solid Gil was used hav^ at all^times been perfectly cool and clean, with^^out any leakage or splashing of oil, while^the adjoining boxes, where the old system^of liquid oiling is still In use, attain a high^degree of heat, beside splashing oil for sev^^eral feet on each side of the shaft
Yt being satisfied with this, Mr Hrophy^underbMik to keep cool the journals of the^locomotive pulling the Atlautic express on^the Montana Central railway between llel^ena and Hutte, a feat considered impossi^^ble owing to the heavy grades and the fast^time the train has to make. Th** Helmet^Solid Oil waa applied and the train made^several trips to Hutte and back with all the^Journals perfectly cool, to the great satis^^faction of the othc^rs and engineers of the^road. This oil is now being placed In ut^^most every mill and brewery adjacent,^among which are the Helena A Livingston^Smelting and Reduction company. Helena^Lumber company, 1'nited States Public^Sampling company, Helena Waterworks^and Klectric Light Works.
TheHelmet Solid Gil Is a German^product, contains no acid or pitch,^will not melt, will not freeze, will not clog^nor gum and can be applied tn any posi^^tion. It is cleanly, It a sure preventative^of hot boxes and said to be the cheapest^and most desirable lubricant known. The^A. M. Hotter Hardware company of this^city will carry this oil In stock aa soon at a
verticalshaft was sunk, la a year's time^the mine would be paying ****** dividends.
Asnear aa lean remember Jim Whit^latch, in 1H04, came up from salt Lake^with a few companion! and a wagon^load of whlakejr and landtnl^In Helena neuiy broke. The^placer diggings were then attracting a^g'Nid deal of attention and before Jim waa^in town an hour he aold out his entire^cargo of whiskey at fancy figures. This^gave 1.1 nt a grubstake and he started In to^propect for quartz and be knesra bit of^quartz when fie saw It, having made him-^telf famous by the discovery of the Whit-^latch Union In Nevada
liestarted out In December before the^snow began to fall and went up Last^Chance gulch, found Mime boat and then^traced this to the ledge. He taw gold,^jumped in the air. staked out a claim and^came back to town. He did^nothing more until the following^late spring. He tolled away at^d^^v^*lopmeat, but there were no reduction^works to treat the ore until the. spring ot^IWy, when L G. I n in ley (now a resident of^Uoulder valley ) who at that time waa a^freighter acroaa the plains, brought out and^erected a 10 stamp quartz mill of a very^primitive pattern. Turutey had secured a^claim or two In that auction, and worked^his mines with much profit. In the fall of^lHtitl Whitlatch made a contract with him^to crush 1,000 tons of ore from the Union^atS15atoo, which yielded $1*8,000 in gn.'d.^I he next contract was for 600 tons at S1H.^That was a pretty stiff figure for free mill^lag ore. All of this came from claim No. 3
J.C.Kicker in 1H67 put up a SJO stamp^mill to treat ore for claim No. 2 Mean^time Whitlatch had become owner of most^ot the ground on the Mead outside of Kick^^er's location. In 1K6H vVhitlatch made a^sale to the National Mining and Exploring^company for about S100.000. This company^erected a 20-stainp mill and subsequently^Jim made another sale to the Columbia^Mining company, a rniladelphia organiza^^tion, who also put up a 20 stamp mill. 1^think the price paid to Whitlatch waa $75.-
000Soon a discovery was msde by Wm.^H. Parkinson and Chas. D. McCiure,^now the (iranlte Mountain million^^aire, and they erected a 10-stamp^mill. They called their claim the Gyhee.^Old I'nlonvllle was In her glory then and^had a population of about 3.000, part of^whom resided at Park City where aeveral^of the mills were situated. Everything^went lively until 1K75, when litigation com^^menced and one thing or another until all^of a sudden everything was closed down.^The t ital output of the camp was never^known, hut it is variously estimated be^^tween 5^,000,000 and $7.^xjo,0oo.
Foryears these mines kept Helena^alive. Hefore they were discovered It^looked mighty blue here during the winter^when the placers were frozen up. There^is one thing about the rnionville mines^aud that is no mine in Montana has so con^^tinuously showed low grade ore to such a^deptfa aa they did. t consider It one of^the best fields for investment to-day that^can be found in Montana and If a company^Is organized to develop them Helena peo^^ple should not let the mines goto eastern^piiqde.
I. 11. Hirdsall, general traveling agent
ofthe Safety Nltro Powder company, and^an old time Montauian, arrived in the city^last night direct from the Chloride camp^He say s that the Wetter mine, for a par^^tially developed mine, is very promising^and from all indications will prove to be^of great value; but it will require several^months of steady work to lully test It.^The repmt that only a blowout waa found^he sets Is an error. He was in there and^says all Indications point to a well defined^ledge being discovered. The tunnel Is in
1oo feet on low grade ore, and Supt. Mc^^Donnell is satisfied with tne showing.
TDKhomk8takk.^K. Chadlwmrno returned from Stemple^yesterday aud reports having increased the^working force from seven to twelve men^on the ItomcHtake. In tunnel No 3, he^states, the level is being extended in two^parts, and in No 2 runnel crosscutt'ng Is^in progress, under which a rich vein of^gold ore has shown up. He believes that^with fifty feet more development a chute^of ore will be struck. A number of pros^^pects in the vicinity are being developed,^and the district is attracting a good d m of^attention among prospectors.
HenryKlein received a letter yesterday^from Msnager Waggoner, at the Star mine,^at Mt. Kavniond, Fresno county, Califor^^nia. There is four feet of snow on the^mount .In, which retards the work to some^extent The new concentrator will be^completed about April 20. Mr. Waggoner^writes that the ore has improved within^the past week.
