The Condition of Properties jn the
Territory of Montana,
And the Mineral Producing Regions
Generally West of thp
Inter Mountain: Salt is being shipped
to the Marget Ann mill and everything
is being put in shape fQr the resumption
of work this week.
The total output of the Drum Lum
mon for the month of March was $185,
000, of which the low grade ore, 2,693
tons, yielded $37,300.
B. R. Sherman expects to put in a
thousand dollars or more developing his
prospect in the Castle mountains, five
miles east of the Springs.-Husbandman.
In consequence of the bad condition of
the roads about Glendale, it is impossible
to haul ore, and as a consequence the
furnaces of the Hecla company have been
Missoulian: At the old Woodman camp
at the head of Lou Lou, lately, Charley
Schafft, in two hours' pounding from
choice rock, extracted $1.50 vorth of gold.
A prominent Helena banker informed
a Butte man a day or two ago that Hel
ena will soon build a $5,000,000 smelter
capable of working $10 ore at a profit.
Mining Journal: The managers of the
Flint Creek company are anxiously
awaiting the departure of snow, that they
may begin operations on their property
at Cable mguntain.
The stockholders and subscribers of
the Rena mining company, near Ar
genta, Beaverhead county, met in St.
Louis last week and drew up articles of
incorporation. These will be filed in
Montana this week.
A Davisville correspondent of the Dix
on (CaL) Tribune says: Wild geese
gather by millions on the farms adjoining
the tules, and their ravages are alarming.
Herders are regularly employed on some
farms armed with long range rifles to
-keep them off.
Messrs. Alderman and McBride have
leased the Bluejay mine, and bonded it
for $40,000. They propose to sink 160
feet and then cross to the main ledge.
Sample assays show excellent results
and the lessees are hopeful of a strike.
The town of York, a faw miles north of
Helena is having .smewhat of a boom.
In early days York was one of the live
liest placer camps in the territory. The
Trout Creek mining company is the name
of a new incorporation, with a capital
stock of $1,000,000, consisting of 40,000
shares at $25 each, which will operate at
Husbandman: From what we can
gather we have come to the conclusion
that Messrs. Edward & Barker are well
pleased with the Bourbon mine and we
have every confidence in the camp prov
ing one of surpassing wealth. Work on
the Bourbon is progressing steadily and
the ore continues to show up splendidly
They have about seventy-five tons on the
Superintendent McDonald of the new
St. Louis company is expected in Dillon
soon, an will proceed to the mines at
Argenta at once, says the Examiner. It
is generally believed that his company
will build large reduction works during
the summer, and will not ship any ore.
Foreman McArdle has built an office and
done considerable other necessary work
It is understood that W, A. Clark of
Butte has become a heavy stockholder in
the Tuscarora company at Argenta and
will push things lively this summer. The
furnace ran successfully eight shifts and
then had to shut down on account of a
shortage of water, but a new dam has
been put in the creek,and operations were
to have been resumed yesterday morning.
Missoulian: Sternie Blake and Eph
Hackett returned from Helena the 20th.
They report having formed the Helena
and Victor mining company. The results
of the shipment of the two car loads of
ore to Wickes have not as yet been heard.
E. C. Ray came from the capital with
them. Mr. Ray has been in charge of
Hauser and Wardner's interests in the
Bullivan and Bunker Hill quartz mines
at Wardner for some time, He will ac
company them to Victor.
Horace F. Brown, of Helena, one of the
leading mining experts of the west, left
for Neihart yesterday. He goes direct
to the Hudson Mining company's works,
and we hope the citizens will show him
enough of the mines that be may be able
to form an idea of the camp's great ex
tent and wealth. A favorable report
from him would have a good effect in
bringing the mines into prominence. Mr.
Brown has for a number of years been
superintendent of the Helena foundry.
Missoula Times: A. S. Blake was down
from Victor last week, superintending
the shipment of ore to Wickes. The Cur
lew and Elizabeth company are shipping
the ore as fast as they can get it down
from the mine, and are paying 40 cents
per hundred for freighting between the
properties and the depot. Some of the
enthusiastic' Botter Rooters say the ore
is so rich that it costs more to ship the
money back than it does the ore over.
Mr. Henry Bratnobe r and Mr. Bennett,
have returned from their visit to the
Southern Cross mine, near Georgetown,
which Mr. Brantnober and Mr. Warten
wieler, of Butte, hold under bond. The
property is owned by Salton Cameron, of
Georgetown, and Ben Harris, of Helena
It is understood that Messrs. Bratnober
and Wartenweiler ask an extention of the
bond with a view to further prospect the
property before deciding upon a purchase.
Independent: The Boston mining and
smelting company is now running their
smelting furnaces. They are now hauling
about thirty tons of ore per day from
their mine, a portion of which is roasted
and the remainder is shipped raw. It is
reduced by the Butte reduction works.
At their mine, the Keating, they have
lately erected a hoist capable of working
to a considerable depth. They are now
extracting ore from the 300-foot level
The ore is very base, being so full of sul
phur that in roasting it burns without
fuel and loses about 40 per cent. of its
weight in the process.
A mnan from Alaska says: Senator
Jones' Treadwell mine on Douglas island
is working about 160 men. It is under
stood that they have lots of good ore.
Some miners on the island, I don't know
who they were, three weeks ago sold to a
London company a property for $1,000,
000, A 200-stamp mill is to be put up
there. A 160-stamp mill is in course of
erection on the island on the Knowles
property, owned by a Boston company.
It is safe to say that within twelve
months there will be more than 600
stamps at work on Douglass Island. I
suppose there is nothing like the ledges
there in all geology. They are from 400
to 500 feet wide, and are low grade, ramin
ining $6 to $14 per ton. There is a good
deal of excitement up on the Yukon now,
and at Berners bay, forty miles above
Sitka, rich placer and quartz properties
are reported found. A good many pros
pectors have gone in. The steamer An
con's last trip carried up about 200 miners,
principally from Montana and Washing
Red Cliff, CoL, shipped 11 cars of ore
