O Bmnth of The Kind Yw Haw Mwan Bought .uij l. Professor Wheaton, an expert chem ist, in the employ of the Smoky Hill Land owners, and now stationed at Ellis, has made an exhaustive inves tigation of the deposits along the Smoky river, both in Ellis and Trego counties, and according to his opinion the country south and west isone vast mineral deposit, which, through the action of the elements, was swept down from the Rockies and deposited in t he basin known as the Smoky Val ley, and in the opinion of this emi nent gentleman', is one vast inex haustible mass, containing gold, sil ver and zinc. The formation is of such a nature as to tax the ingenuity or me uiwi expert, chemists, but a new process (patented) has oeeh in vented, and for the purpose of testing the matter thoroughly a mill in pro cess of construction at Denver to be completed about May 1st, when all doubts as to these supposed mineral finds is to be expelled. So much faitii have the parties in the mineral wealth of the Smoky ililis that we under stand that the experimental mill is being erected at a cost of $17,000. In addition, they have invested thou sands of dollars iu real estate, and as they offer no shares of stock for sale, the whole matter assumes an aspect or thorough faith iu the product of these rugged hills. Tons of earth have been taken to Denver and east ern cities and in no case have assayers failed to find the mineral, perhaps in some cases iu only very small quanti ties, but its presence has been thor oughly established. From a reliable source we learn that the past week parties of three and five from New York, New Jersey and other eastern cities have arrived at Ellis, taken teams for the Smoky and returned laden with specimens which they car ried away. We also learn that a New xorK syndicate nas an option on a vast belt of land, conditioned that assays run a certain per cent in which event they buy outright at a sum run ning into the millions. However skeptical the people of Ellis county may have been upon this subject, and the enormity of the claims of some of the gentlemen interested, vet strang er things have already come to pass. and may we not also believe that these rugged hills with their variety of geological formations also contain the precious metal " L,ct us picture to ourselves what the future of Ellis county would be in case the dreams of the gentlemen directly interested should be realized. A vast city of 15,- 000 located on the banks of the Smoky, with perhaps a dozen smelters giving employment to thousands, other thou sands digging into the bowels of the earth; railroads vising with each other to first reach the vantage point. All this and more may be expected. and we sincerely hope the gentlemen' may be correct in their surmises, and that at an early day they may be able to demonstrate to the world that they have not erred.
