IDAHO ELECTION.
Returns of the election for delegate to
congress from Idaho are yet incomplete,
but enough has been received to induce
both parlies to concede the re-eleetion of
Mr. Feno. So far as we can now ascertain
the counties reported, show tbe following
majorities for Mr. Fenn.
Nez Perce.................................... . 62
Idaho .............................................

Majorities for Clark

AI I urns Co., is claimed by the Stnttman
to be 50 majority for Clark. No returns
from Hear Lake, Oneida or Lemhi counties.
No one run tell what will be the reiurns
from these counties, but basing estimate»
upon results of previous electious, it is
generally conceded that all but Alturas
will give majorities for Feno and some say

WAEI&EN9 QUARTZ.
-
Mr. Dickinson of Boston returned from
Warrens to this city last Monday nigbt.
Mr. D., has spent must ufiiis time in War
rens since the middle of last August, iu in
vestigating the character of the quartz
leads there and other tac-ilities for qnartz
mining purposes, with a view to making
such representations relating thereto as in
his opioion tbe facts will warrant to east
ern capitalists, as an inducement for money
to operate the ledges of tbe camp. Owing
to a failure on the part of some who had
promised the necessary funds for starting
the Rescue Mill, and contrary to tbe expec
tations of Mr. Dickinson, he has been un
able to test the ores by mill process and
hence bis results obtained are only ap.
proximate. Again tba condition of several
of the ledges was such, the shafts of some
being full of water, and those of others so
caved io and so little opening had been
made upon other veins, that be bas found
it in gome cases quite difficult to obtain the
best average samples of tbe ores for assay
tests. He bus enjoyed better access to the
merits of the ores by tests made npon tail
ings found at tbe different mills end aras
tras, wbere ores from varions ledges bad
' «»nous icuges nan
' be#n worked - I» these be could readily
. Ascertain whet bed been lost In tbe mill
ling, aud obtain a better average of what.
the ores wop Id pay per ton if properly
worked. During tbe brief interviews we
bave had with Mr. Dickinson since his re*
turn we learn that be is decidally averse to
having any inflated statements made as
coming from him in regard to. the^emines,
that he does not wish to induce an impres
sion upon tbe public mind respecting the
we raine of the quart» of tbe district, ibat the
on fats will not warrant. Hia researches by
I reason of his not having the facilities' for
in
a
milling tbe ores himself, not having been
so perfect as be desired, he cannot deter
mine with certainty whet per cent, of tbe
metal in the ores can be obtained by the or
dinary mill processes, nnd only estimates
can be made from the general character of
tbe ores, as compered with other ores
which be bas reduced in other localities.
In different ledges different results have
been obtained by assays. In some esses he
has only assayed small samples, in others
he bas endeavored to reduce to a pulp
quantities sufficiently large, taken from
every variety of ore in tbe vein, to furnish
a reasonable fair test of the whole vein mat
ter. From such opportunities affoided him,
as we have described above, we are author
ized by Mr. Dickiuson to say that nearly
all the ledges be has thus examined carry
good paving milling ores, some of course
are much richer tbau others,* but nearly all
are good ores. In many of them tbe gold
greatly predominates altho they catry
much silver and are quite free from base
metal. In a few tbe sliver predominates
but nearly ell carry a little gold.
The siiuuiioa of many of these ledges is
highly favorable for working them by
shafts and drifts. Timber and water are
abundnn* in tbe vicinity of each. The
veins are not large, but so far as examined,
are well defined Assure veins and carry a
large quantity of ore in proportion to their
width.
Mr. Dickinson is satisfied that to work
these mines properly, much heavier ma
chinery is needed, than that now there.
His observations of tbe route from Ml. Ida
ho into the camp, impress him with tbe
belief that a much larger sum of money,
than has been generally estimated, will be
required to construct a suitable wagon
road for transporting heavy machinery iuto
the camp. But as we understand Mr.
Dickinson does not claim to be an expert
in building roads in the mountains. The
opinion of road builders differs as to tbe
cost of building a suitable road to these
mines varying from $10,000 to $25,000.
We have never heard of one experienced
road builder estimate the cost at more then
$25,000, for a rond Such as would admit of
transporting the heaviest class of maebinery
for a quartz mill. The point of most ex
oeosive labor is
ex
oeosive labor is about ten miles in passing
the Canyon of Salmon river.
We are uot advised as to the full repre
sentations which Mr. Dickinson has made
or will make to Eastern men, nor hs to
what he will recommend. Cut we are »me
that be will state nothing or recommend
nothing that be deems calculated to iuduce
any groundless hopes of the future pros
pects of the camp. He is of the opioion
that much money is needed to properly
open and develop the real worth of these
mines, and that if the people here desire
their development, they should sbo» them
selves liberal in offering inducements for
capitalists to take hold and develop them
Hundreds of tUousands of sueep are be
fog driven into Arizona from California,
but, tbe loss of tbe poor Iambs tn route Irom
thirst and starvation is simply frightful.
One party recently atarled from Kern
county with 8.000 and arrived at Tejon
with but 2,250. Another party started
with a like number, and suffered even
greater decimation. Reports give a very
deplorable account of the suitability of Ari
zona 8S a stock-raising count y, owing to
• he extreme dryness before tbe Samraer
rains set in.— ()regon ; an.
It is never too late with us so long
as we are still sware of nur faults and
bear them imfMttiently, and so long as
aspirations eager for couquest stir with
in us.
