JUDTHtt MItXING ANl) MILLING Cli..
This company, the outgrowth of the
Collar Mining and Improvement Co.,
under the supervlsiont of Eugene Smith,
an experienced minter and nilneralogist,
is prosecuting development in the
S~kookuna (Collar) mine, running drifts
and sinking shafts. 3wenty-seveni
miners are now employ aid the force
will he Increased as rapidly as they can
he worked to advantage. From every;
level and drifeore Is being taken out,
miuch superior to any heretofore -
posed in this property.
The 21)stamp mill Is being put in
repair. The engine was started last
Saturday and put in working order.
When the chemticals arrive, which are
now en route from Judith Lanslieg,
there will be no further cause for delay,
in fact the mill is liable to drop stamps
in a very short time.
The business-like manner in which
Mr. Smith is conducting the work is.
satisfactory evidence that the Judlith
Mining Co., composed mostly of pit.
Paul capitalists, propose to thoroughly
prospect their property, starting the
mill as soon as sufficient ore is muined
and exposed to assure a run of ninety
days.
