pDW to The £ndependet. I
Mlseotals Dec. 11.-Notwithstanding
the generl depresson in mining, there'
has been some development in Missoula
oanlp during the year 1804 and there
is pLpprently a more healthy feeling
as to the future. The principal mine
of this county oontinues to be the Iron
MountaJp, which, notwithstanding the
low prices of sliver and lead, has been
paying dividends and is reported to be
In better condition at present than ever
before. In the early part of the year
the shaft was sunk 300 feet addi
tional to a depth of 500 feet below the
tunnel level. Levels were run, stopes
started and the concentraUng mill re
sumed operations about the middle of
the year. The average daily produc
tion Is now about twenty tons of con
centrates assaying ten ounces slilver
and 50 per cent. lead.
The developments on the head of
Nine Mile creek at Mortimer have been
Important and promise an Increased
yield next year. The properties in this
vicinity are all gold bearing. The Nine
Mile company operating at this point
has dropped continuously for the past
nine months ten of their twenty stamps.
large ore lodes have been opened in
the mine. It Is understood that the
company will close down about the first
of the year and in the spring will sub
stitute water power for steam. It also
contemplates putting in a bucket cab:e
train from he Eagle mine to the mill.
This will save considerable transporta
tion expense and, together with the
water power, will effect a saving of
about 1,300 monthly on the expenses of
running the mine and mill.
During the year the Ban Martins
Mining company, ownlng claims ad
joining those of the Nine Mile company,
ha erected a five-stamp mill, built
tramway ore lines and a comfortable
boarding house. It has been running
the mill for two months and expects to
continue operations during the winter.
On the St. Regis there have been im
portant developments which next year
will largely Increase the metalic yield
of the county. The Oro Fino Mining
company, operating near De Borgln, is
now buildings a five-stamp water power
mill and expects to have it crushing ore
by next Maerk.
The Last Chance mine, near auitere,
is a silver property which has come to
the front this last fall as a producer of
high grade ore. Five carloads of ore
have been shipped and yielded hand
some profits to the owners. There is
promise that tt will be a heavy producer
in 189. Considerable ore has been
shipped during the year from the Char
coal mine at Canvas Prairie, and five
carloads of pyritic gold ore have been
sent to the smelters from the White
Cloud mine on Eight Mile creek.
The total production of ore in Mis
souls county in the year 134 has been
in excess of previous years. There has,
hOwever, been less general prospecting
done. In the placer mines there has
been the usual activity with the de
crease in production from shallow dig
gings made up by increased yields from
larger enterprises. The Cedar Creekl
and California Gulch mines, opened up
by large flumes and hydraulics, have
largely increased their yield and are
now In position to handle more gravel
than ever before. Other placer propo
s.tlons are in a fair way to be more sys
tematically developed during the com

New Yort and one year in lBoeton, will
be transferred to this city, with all its
wealth of beautiful scenery, stage
equipments and mechanical effects.
The play is not an ambitious one; it is a
elmple story of New England life, and
no attempt has been made to impart
enratlionalism to any of the situations,
.hough the Interest of the play is well
sustained throughout. The abundance
of healthy humor which prevadee the
piece makes it all the brighter by con
trast with its occasional touches of
pathos. The characters are drawn from
living models, with little exaggeration
or carlcature to distort them. There is
nothing more realistic than the living
room at the old farm house, or the barn
with its broad floor littered with un
husked corn. The lofty hay-mow and
its stalls tenanted with live horses
tmust be seen to be appreciated. The,
famous race scene, with its wonderfully
effective realism of thoroughbmed
horses running three-quarters if a mile
in full and continuous view of the audi

ment and thrilling effect.
