Steel Corporation's Mine, Donora.
Special to The Journal.
Duluth. Minn., Feb. 6.Six drills
are working on lands belonging to
the Longyear Mesaba Iron and Land
company, in the northeast quarter of
the southwest quarter of section 3,
township 58, range 15. This Is the
rhost extensive exploratory work un

engaged in but two explorations on the
Mesaba range, one at the Genoa with
three drills, and one at the Morris
mine. G. G. Hartley and associates
have several drills on the Mesaba.

More Explanator Work
The Cleveland Cliffs Iron company
has an option on lands adjoining the
Donora mine of the United States

ab a range will move.to Lake Superior

to the corporation and lying west of
Eveleth. and of Adams and Spruce at
that place. This includes the enor
mou Hibbing district, with its eastern
and western groups of half a dozen
jrreat mines each. It includes also,
the Great Mountain, with its 1,300,000-
ton annual average output.
The absorption of the Minnesota
Iron company into the Oliver Iron
Mining company will put the former
company under the provisions of the
Carnegie aid fund and will add many
miners to the lists of possible benefi
Several diamond drill men from the
lake region have just been sent to Por

YOUNG I N SOME DANGE
Question of Residence and Division
of Offices Hurt His Candidacy.
FARGO, N* D.A newspaper controversy is
on over the renomlnation of Chief Justice Young
of the supreme court. When he was nominated
he resided at Bathgate, Pembina county. Some
time after his election he removed to Fargo
because of the central location and the greater
convenience in attending court terms.
Some regard him as a Cass county resident and
think that Cass should not have both Young and
Spalding, for congress, on the state ticket. The
general public regards the chief justice as
still a resident of Pembina county and that
section of the state Is' demanding his renomiia
tion on the ground that ho justice of the su
preme court has failed to be accorded that
honor. Others insist that If Young Is claimed
by Pembina that county Is not entitled to two
places on the stata ticketYoung and Holmes,
the state auditor.
Justice Young is decidedly popular with the
legal fraternity and In his decisions leans to a
"horse sense" point of view rather than to a
maze of technicalities.
No secret is made of the ambitions of Dis
trict Judges Lauder and Glaspell to succeed
\oung. Judge Winchester of Bismarck Is also
reported to be In. the Barkis class. Friends of
Judge Young fear that in a mixup over a divis
ion of the good places some trade may be made
by which the chief justice will be left out.
The effort to secure a high duty pump for
Fargo is a kind of continuous performance
affair that has plenty of comedy features. The
last vote In the council was against the measure.
Pressure was brought to bear on one or two
men. who announced their Intention to change
their vote, but at a special meeting they failed
to appear. Later an effort was made to brace
them up and when this \rus accomplished a suf
ficient number of the opposition absented them
selves to prevent a quorum.

MRS. HEZEKIAH BUCKTHORN.
"Now that I am restored to health and n
longer a sufferer from those* torturing ailments
peculiar to women, I don't mind stating that
years ago I became so worried and discouraged
that I pray-ed to God to release me from my suf
fering. He certainly answered my prayer, but
net in tho way I anticipated.
"One day my husband brought me a bottle
of Chrystol Ionic, but I had dosed myself with
so many useless medicines that I would not try it
until he almost made me do It.
"In half an hour I felt better and that night
I had the first uubroken sleep for more thau
twenty years. That flrst bottle set me on JU.V
feet again, and within two weeks 1 was able
to go to church for the flrst time in sixteen
years. I am now completely cured. My appe

better iu my life. God answered
