Good Prospects in the New Camp
Advices from Libby creek, Missoula
county, state that the recent- rains had
caused the snow on the summit betiwen
Vermillion creek and ,Libby to becoz ne
very soft, causing much trouble to thc.se
who had to pack their supplies on their
pbacks over this route. A town has be en
laid out three miles below the falls and
several cabins are in course of erection.
Good prospects have been found on the
high bars where it was thought no pay
would be found. About eighty men are
in the camp and are bnsy preparing for
the summer's work.
A GREAT INVENTION.
Mr. Dennis Ryan has struck another
mine in the shape of a patent ore reducer,
which promises to revolutionize the pres
ent slow and clumsy methods of bringing
ore to powder. The machine, the St. Paul
Pioneer Press says, produces opposite cur
rents of air of a cyclonic nature, which
dash the pieces of ore against each other
with such violence and create such fric
tion that the ore is rapidly reduced to the
smallest particles, A keg of nails, for in
stance, fed into the machine comes out in
a short tlme a powder as fine as flour. A
western miner brought the invention to
Mr. Ryan's notice, who at once realized
its value and induced Erastus Wyman, of
of R. G. Dunn & Co. New York City to'
take hold of it with him. They bought
the right to manufacture the machine for
$10,000 and now have it perfected and
ready for sale." It is expected that the
profits from this investment will induce
Mr. Ryan to build another big hotel for
St. Paul--something that will be needed
within five years if she keeps on growing
at the rate she is making now.
RUBY SILVER ABUNDANT.
The Missoula county bonanzas are com
ingto the front in public nontce. Among
the facts found by an Inter Mountain
correspondent are the following:
The Curlew and Elizabeth locations,
lying just south of Big creek, 'are marvels
even in a territory prolific of surprises.
The eastern end of the properties borders
upon an apple orchard upon the ranch of
John Buker, and the hill itself, which is a
mass of mineral, would make a fine farm.
The locations run from the discovery
south westerly 1,500 feet and take in the
entire hill. E. L. Hackett, one of the
owners, resides at the mines, which are
only a few hundred feet from his resi
dence. He isworking eight or nine men
on the Curlew, stoping and taking out
plenty of ore going way up in the hun
dreds. They have a chimney in the tun
nel about sixty feet long and nearly as
wide as the tunnel carrying ruby silver,
which has made this location famous,
and which they will shortly pro
ceed to develop. They have a magnificent
property, and a pick struck in the ground
anywhere in the Curlew lines will turn up
ore, and good ore at that. The Elizabeth,
which joins the Curlew on the west, is a
peculiar looking prospect. A chimney, or
blow-out, at discovery shows nearly all
kinds of mineral, lead, copper and silver,
and no one knows as yet how large it is.
The owners have more faith in this pros
pect than in the Curlewalthough it has not
been develope'. John B. Catlin and H.
C. Myers uncovered a.leadcarrying galena
that prospects away up, samples from the
top going 400 ounces. They put some
men at work on that prospect this morn
The Pleasant View, Badgerr, and
Bitter Root Prince mines show greater c<
development than any other in the valley, in
the Pleasant View having a shaft 185 feet hi
deep and levels connecting it with the ii
Badger and Victor. The Bitter Root
Prince is opened by a 200-loot tunnel. bi
These properties are all looking well and tb
only need cheap transportation for ores to li
bring them to the front in great shape.
Stevensville has taken a new lease of life,
and mines and the prospects of an early
railroad connection have awakened up her JI
unusually conservative citizens. 1E
The Wrong Party. gi
Mr. Lewis of Missoula county arrived
here yesterday in quest of a.party wh.n,
about one year ago, setured coasiderab'le s
money under false pretenses in his county. p;
He had information that his man was here, Y4
and after consulting with officer Heren
deen they spotted their man at the Park tc
last evening, but decided not to make the hi
arrest until this mornmng. " When it came as
time to cellar the man, Lewis approached tl
him, and to his surprise saw that he had d
been mistaken, and that while the sup- c,
posed criminal was the very image of theI w
man wanted. yet close inspection showed
him to be the wrong man. Not a word tt
was said by Lewis, and the suspected party h
is unaware of how close he came to be a
taken for "another fellow that looked like
