XtwTobk, isept ^^ ^A Time* special^from Buffalo says: ^One of the laraest^mining enterprises of late years has col^lapsed, and the net loss Is ^2,000 000. The^enterprise alluded to is the Big Bend Tun^nei and Mining company, with tbe priori^pal office in this city and a branch at Big^Bend. Butte county, California. The nei^ot operations is at tbe latter place. The^capital su^ck of the company Is $20,000 000^Two millions has been paid in and su^almost beyond redemption, it i- feared by^the stockholders. The president of th^company is Hon. Roy V. Pierce, M. D^this city. lie. Pierce is at the bead of th^enterprise and owns from 90 to 70 per cent^ot the stock. Tbe shareholders are^widely known throughout the country acd^some of them are doubtless feeling pretty^blue over the fading away of the vision of^fabulous wealth to be derived from posses^sion of the stock in the Big B^nd scheme.^The Feather river, in Butte county, Ci^i- ncn in its deposits of gold and the north^iork of the river, called the Big Bend, will^always be considered particularly rich in^the way ot gold deposits in its gravel !y bed.^About five years ago Or Pierce organized^rhe Big Bt-ud Tunnel and Mining company^The scheme was to ditert the stream from^IU natural oed through a huge tunnel^ir.u ^ exposing the rich gold deposits sup^posed to be lying along the bottom of^the river. Tbe bed bas been drained, and^contains far more gravel and boulders tban^gold^so many are boulders, in fact, that i^^ sis as much to get them out of the way^as the gold found amounts to.
Or.Pierce, president of tbe company, in^a circular to tne stockholders announcing^the future of the company, aays: * since^trit'is^ueof bulletin No. 1, September 29,^Mf4 iliere has been no material change m^tue prospects developed by our mining^opc r .nons last year at Big Bend The vast^quantity ot boulders uncovered completely^handicapped our operations and made them^so expensive as to prevent a realization of^profit. In fact, in view of the adverse^developments of last reason's work^and the further experience i f^this season, it is doubtful if our^mine ever en be worked at^a profit; certain!), not at the present prices^^f lab.^r, nor unless some m- re economical^method may hereafter be invented for^handling tbe vast quantity of boulders^wtiir-h er:ist in the n\er bed. Our opera^Hons demonstrated the fact that there is a^vast quantity of ^old in onr claims; but iu^the race of the obstacles mentioned it^mmms iniposs'bie to ^ xtract it at a profit.^! - i. tsl on'rnt from our mines last i^e*^^on was SI7 KS2 This did not pay the^c ^t of acti.ai mining operations. Some of^the ground washed quite rich, and every^where gold was foui.d to exist in sufficient^abundance to have paid largely, but for^the unexpected obstacles.
DuringAugust of this year Dr. Pierce^s i^ ^ t le out put was about ^2,500, but headds:^It is doubtful if we shall be able to do^much better than pay expenses this season.^Kvert thing has been done to operate^cheaply and effectively, and everything^eis - likely to facilitate tbe work that ex^^perience could suggest has been done. In^conclusion he says: ^ li.it after all our ef^^forts, and much as we regret to acknowl^edg^- the fact, yet we are quite prepared to^a^imit at p-es- :it we see no pr ospect of real^iztng our former expectations with^respect to these mines. Great as is ourdisap-^pointment at this unfavorable termination^of our great undertaking, we at least, have^the satisfaction of knowing we were not^more at fault in our judgment with these^mines than were toe most experiencrd^mining experts of the Pacific Coast, and^hat we have been defeated by no fault in^management, but by the existence of un^^favorable conditions which could not possi^^bly have been foreseen or supposed to ex^stand which were only dirclosed when^tbe mines are freely opened up by our ex^^cavations in tbe bed of the river

OREGON LAND CASK

Washington,Sept 26.^ Officials in tbe^genera! land office say that they are not^aware that as stated in a Portland. Oregon,^dispatch. It Is withholding from settlers In^Oregon patents for timber land to any^great extent on the grounds that the lands^are agricultural. There are some cases^held up pending an investigation by spe^^cial agents to determine the character of^the land. The great trouble that the land^officials have to deal with, they say, is to^prevent a violation of the law In regard to^tbe entry of timber land, is not only in^Oregon, but in the northwest generally.^By the law one person can make only one^entry of 160 acres of timber land. Syndi^^cates have beenforni.il and great bodies^of timber land, sometimes as much as 50.^000 or 100.000 acres were purchased by in^^dividuals with tbe understanding that^when they received tbe patent it would be^turned over to the synuicate, which not^only furnished money to the individual to^purchase the land, but paid him also for^the ase of bis name. In many cases these^men are brought from eastern cities, as^n.en living in the country have ae a general^thing exhausted their right to either pur^chase or enter government land.
Insome cases, where the party holds a^homestead of e'her entry and desires to ac^cure more land he purchases a timber en^try. To do this be bas to prove that the^iand is timber land, but in a number of In^stances the land which he declares is Urn^ber land is agricultural land, and in these^cases, according to tbe law, be lose* his^purchase money of 8250 per acre, which be^gave to tbe local register and receiver at^the time ae made bis final proof. The law^provides for this forfeiture as a punish^ment id his attempted fraud.

ADecision by Koble Which Will^Many Morn-ana Settler*.
Washinoton,Sept. 26 ^[Special to the^Independent ] ^ Secretary Noble to-day^reversed the decision of the general land^office, which Is important as a large num^ber of Montana cases are affected by it^Tbe land in question is in tbe Lewiston,^Idaho, district. Joshua A. Randolph en^tered tbe land and made final proof, and^was granted bis certificate. The land was^without the granted limits of tbe Northern^Pacific road, and on an odd numbered^section. Randolph in his proof notice cited^the company to appear and show cause why^such proof snould not be made. Tbe com^pany did not appear, but in due time^claimed the land. Secretary Noble grants^tne claim on the ground that the land had^long been attached to tbe railroad, and^and the company wa* not bound to appear^and dispute Randolph's claim.
Inthe case of the Northern Pacific^against W. E. Catlln, in tbe Helena dis^^trict the decision is in favor of the latter^Catlin made an entry before tbe filing of^the Northern Pacific line of definite loca^tion, and was awarded the land.

ARVINY WEDDING DAY.
EmmonsBlaine and Miss Anita McCor-^mlck Married at Rlchfleld springs.
RichfieldSprings, Sept 26.^The^wedding of Emmons Blaine, son of the sec^^retary of state, and Miss Anita McCor-^aaick, of Chicago, was solemnized here to^^day .at noot.. The little Presbyterian^church In which the ceremony took place,^is situated on a knoll overlooking tbe vil^lage. It was lighted with electric lighU^and 1U arches trimmed with smilax, au^tumn leaves an 1 ferns, and the pulpit was^covered with tl .wers. As the guesU be^^gan arriving at the church soon after 11:30,^the clouds broke into rain. Ten minutes^before tbe hour for the ceremony Stephen^B. Em ins and wife entered, soon followed^by Secretary of State Blaine and wl e. The^mother of the bride, plainly attired, entered^soon afier, and it was now that tbe bridal^party was making its way Into the church.^The clergyman entered the chancel, and^the groom followed them. At that mo^ment the bride, attired in a dress of valen^ciennes lace and white satin, entered upon^the arm of ber brother Cyrus. Emmons^Blaine awaited her at the altar step, and^presenting themselves, tbe Rev. Dr.^V. V. Holmes, local pastor, be^^gan reading tbe marriage service^according to the Presbyterian church. Rev.^Dc lierick Johnson, ot Chicago, taking up^tbe ceremony. The bride was given away^by her brother Cyrus. Tbe marriage was^ith the ring, tbe eonple kneeling during^tbe invocation of the divine blessing upou^tbe union. The newly wedded pair then^led the pn cession from the church, taking^carriages for a drive through tbe pouring^rain to McCormick Cottage, whither invited^guests followed and sat down to the wed^^ding breakfast. The party left at 2 o'clock^for Bar Harbor.
Butte,Sept. 26^Isptclal to the lnde^pendent].^There bas never been a time in^the history of politics in MonUna when the^political complexion of Silver Bow county^was so much in doubt as it is at the present^time. Of course the zealous partisans of^both political parties in this county are^earnest in maintaining that their respective^sides each have a walkover, but tbe quiet,^conservative managers of both parties,^when questioned as to their views, ad mi^that great uncertainty exisU. ThU is^principally caused by the fact that^a different element has been intro^^duced in this fight Marcos Daly,^who has heretofore been rather^an on-looker in politics is thU time an ac^^tive and determined factor on the demo^craticaide. He is straining every nerve to^bring the democratic party of Silver Bow^county under the wire a winner. When^^ever it has been exerted heretofore there^bas not been the slightest doubt as to the^result For instance, in the city election^last spring the overwhelming demo^^cratic majority was due to bis earnest^efforts. In addition to this fact every^other element of democratic strength Is^working in harmony, and the strength ot^the party is, to say the least, greater than^it bas ever been before. Of course. Silver^Bow has .heretofore been a republican^county; but - he republican party has never^been called on to withstand an attack like^that which Is being made at present It is^these facts which give tie democraU the^sanguine views which very many take of^the situation.
Anotherpoint of democratic strength ii^the strong coun .y ticket which, It is gen^erally admitted, has the brightest pros^^pects for election. Tbe -democratic^candidates for county commissioners are^especially strong, and in fact the entire lis:^of county candidates, Including tbe legis^^lative aspirants, could scarcely have been^mproved upon. The large registration is^undoubtedly due to democratic efforts, and^exceeds tbe vote of last year by 1,200.^ThU change alone is amply sufficient to^change tbe complexion of the county, and^is another factor which would seem to Im^^prove tbe democratic prospecU. However,^the conservative, careful managers of both^parties say that the result cannot be fore^^told. This fact in itself, however, in a re^publican county may be a forecast of dem^ocratic success.

The county has been vUited^in all sections by workers of both parties,^and they did not let many escape who^were entitled to register. The last of the^apostles returned to town to-day and will^await results.
Asfsr ss state senator Is concerned, tbe^democratic candidate, W. S. Becker, U^sure of being elected, the only point in dis^^pute being how large a majority he will^receive. The republican leaders, who are^in a position to kuow, concede hu election^by from 30 to 110 majority. J. S. Day, the^nominee jointly with Cascade county for^the legislative assembly, is considered the^strongest man on either county ticket, and^ill run far ahead of his associates. He is^beyond a doubt the most popular man in^Dawson county to-day, as tbe committee^have heard that every man. woman^and child on the north side of^the Missouri want to vote for^him. It shows he bas many friends among^the remnants of the republican party on^the north side. The balance of the demo^^cratic county ticket is the strongest that^has ever been submitted to the voters of^Dawson county, and all indications at the^present writing, are, from a careful inves^^tigation of the figures held by both party^leaders, in favor of the democraU. Hon.^George R. Tingle, sute committeeman for^Dawson county, has made a personal can^^vass of the entire county and is confident^that the entire state and county dem'icratic^ticket from top to bottom will be elected.
