I over Smoot. II. T. Reynolds, Dcnio-
I crut bent Henry Qardnor 48 votes. B.
I N. Chrlstcnson's majority over J. F.

taken out about 10 sacks. Tho oro is
found in what Is known ns tho Broad

cepts tho old Missouri fissure about
iOO feet from tho portals, nnd Is about
200 foot from the surface, directly un

counter It nt depth.
It, appears that Messrs Rnbbo and
Daniels hnvo boon prospecting the
Mineral Flat property on a lease for
ho past three years. They hnvo de
voted their energies largely to
searching for oro In tho tunnel 310
feet deeper than tho Brondbent tun-
