F. TV. Parker of This City
Has Visited Jarbridge,
Capt. E. W. Parker, a mining man of
this city has received a letter from his
son, F. W. Parker, -who is mine super
intendent in Idaho, and has been on a
visit of inspection to the Jarbridge
-strike in Nevada. He says:
"The two properties called the Bourne
and 4he Jarbridg-e mines are wonder
fully rich and will undoubtedly prove
up as great gold mines. The snow was
bo deep that we are unable to examine
the district satlsfactorily.
"The new camp is reached by way of
Twin Falls, Idaho, whence you go south,
20 miles on railroad, -to Holllster and
there take the stage, going 47 miles
to Three Creeks, thence 14 miles to Rim
Bock and from there on horse back and
pack animals to Jarbridge camp. The
total fare Is $10 from Twin Fall to

says the snow did not prevent him from
forming definite ' conclusions on the
merits of the new district. "When dykes
which are all ore free milling and

say that I have never before seen a
system of ore-bearing dykes which
would compare with that. The ore is
tellurium and gold.'
"At -the Bourne mining property a
drift is being run in the middle of the
big out-cropping dyke, and it is all in
ore which assays all th,e way from $4
to $73,000 a ton. No one knows the
width over which the ore extends. The
rich ore does not come in bunches nor
j In streaks; it is disseminated through
Expect Rush to Camp.
"J. W. Powers, another old mining
man, says: 'The Bourne mine is going
to be a gigantic property, and It Is be
lieved that from 5000 to 10,000 men will
be in there by summer. A new town lias
been laid out and "houses and buildings
are going up rapidly. Living Is high at i
present. To illustrate, a sack of
flour costs $6.50, butter .75 cents a
pound, tomatoes, 40 cents a can, bacon
and ham 35 to 40 cents a pound, etc
"Another mining engineer says:
'While Jarbridge as far as the rich
veins are concerned Is a new discovery,
but more than 40 years ago placer 1
miners took out $3,000,000 In gold from
the creeks below Jarbridge Forks, and
what we are now after In the Jarbridge
district is the mother lode that has
given off all this monster wealth. It is
there somewhere and someone is going
to find it. The Bourne and other prop
erties have shown some remarkably
rich Indications, but it yet remains to
be proved who will be the lucky per
son to discover the real bonanza. There
are at least 1000 people there now and
if this excitement keeps up, that 'numJ
ber will swell to 10,000 or 30,000 by next
- BIg Tonnage in Sight.
"A large tonnage of ore is actually in
sight in the Bourne property and in
various parts of the camp are other
showings which compare favorably
with this, except they haven't so much
ore above ground.
"C. H. Harris recently returned from
there and says: 'It is going to be a
corking good camp, the best the coun
try has ever seen. A section eight miles
long and four miles -wide has been
staked off, yet the rich mineral zone
has not begun to be touched yet, and
will surpass the Goldfield and Cripple
Creek districts.' "

New Processes Will Soon Be
Tried in Placers Xear
Judge A. H. Norton, of Jicarilla, N.
M.. states that there will be consider
able activity in ,the Jicarilla mountain
placers this spring. These placers have
been worked for more than a quarter
of a century, but the great obstacle to
profitable mining there is the scarcity
of water, but with the Improved dry
washing processes-, constantly being put
on the market, he believes they will
yet be made to pay handsomely.
He has mined there for 16 years with
varying success, and approves of king
Solomon's maxim, "Silver lies in the
veins, but gold is where It lies."
It undoubtedly lies in the Jicarilla
placers, but the problem ds to separate
it from the sand. The Jicarilla moun
tains are on the east side of the Rock
Island railroad, about 75 miles north
of El Paso.
