CORY'S ORE ON TOP GOOD COPPER AND SILVER FOUND IN THEIR RO1 . WATER LEVEL FLUCTUATES In the Spring of the Year It Is Near the Surface and Later on It Backs Par Into the - Ground. Andrew V. Cory and his sons are de Veloping some very promising capper silver claims at the apex of the mooun tain above Columbia tarden. Although they have eleven claims in all, the work is being confined to the Mont [ 1or anod Johanna. When they first began operations it was their intention to do only enorgh work to entitle them to it plt 'nt on the ground, but after finishing that part of It the ground looked so inviting that they kept sinking. They explet to go at least 150 or 250 feet before stopping. The ledge they are exploring Is about 10 feet wide and carries both sIlver and copper values, but there is more of the former metal than topper. It is ex pected, however, that when the prirper depth is reached the latter value will predominate. A Strange Phenomenon. There is one strange thing about that section. In the spring of the year the water comes within 10 feet of the sur face, but later in the season it disap pears. The Corys are now working in one shaft nearly 100 feet deep and there is not enough water in the bottom to moisten the drill holes. For fear a flow will be encountered shortly they have a pump on the ground and will put it in pler as soon tis neressary. So far the weather on the summit has been good and If it continues it is pos sible that there will be no cessation in I the development work in progress. o Eight men are employed.

WHEN LOVE IS YOUNG LICENSES ISSUED TO TWO 16 YEAR-OLD GIRLS. MOTHER CONSENTS TO ONE F Father and Lover Secure Another But Girl Objects to Xarriage Girl Asks for Sheriff's Aid. Early mnarriiiges are opposed by some people, advocated by others and produc tive of various results. Two early mar riages, either consummated or in pros uect, have come to the attention of the oftiliais at the courthouse lately. In one case everything was agreeable and pleasant, but in the other there are troubles. In the first case the couple were Arthur Dl Lonais and Alice Martin, and in the second the parties are Joseph Sarapees. known also as Sarake's Joseph, "nd Sadie Riest. In both cases the girls are 1i years of age and the men are 2LVand '2 years old rspectlively. Mother Gives Permission. in the case of the first named young piple the marriage license was iesded on January I, the mother of the young lady, a r silent of Idaho, authorizing it by letter. Sliic'Iense Issued to the other couple was proc urid by the girl's father. and Sairagie.s on January 7. but it could not le learned today that the marriage had taken place, and as the girl is op lIosed to it and has appealed to the sheriff's oipice to stand li tween her and the ceremony it is possible that it will not take plea4 at all. There is a good deal of mystery sur roundinug the status of this case at this writing. iiut the ippeal of the girl for aid was made yesterday and the under sheriff, Meitigamn, made an effort to find her and learn what she wished to be done. The Girl Dislikes Him. The father and lover gave her age as 1 at the clerk's offile, but Miss Sand ierg, who runs a home-cooking restau rant on Alaska street, and for whom the girl lately worked as a waitress, says that Miss itest says her age Is 10. The girl does not wish to marry Sara icees for two reasons, it Is said. The fiest one is that he Is her first cousin, and the second is that she doesn't like him, Theire is anal it'm man in the case also, a hoarder of Miss Sandierg's in whdm the young lady is interested. His name is Frank Collins. Miss Sandherg was questioned aboit him today. as to whether he Is a sweetheart of the girl's or not. "Oh, he lust took her out to a sbiow oc casionally," Miss Sandberg said. HAVE MANY OPINIONS. Jack Lynch's Lumber Camp Ordered Quarantined by Dr. Parson. (Stpical to Inter Mountain.) Missoula, Jan. 10.-County Physklan Parsons received orders last night to quarantine the Lynch camp near Iron Mountain, from which place four cases of smallpox have come. Lynch claims the men did not come from there. Bonner, chairman of the hoard of county commissioners, claims there is no smallpox there and that the county will not pay for the quarantine. He has gone to the camp to investi gate. Notwithstanding the differences of opinion it is known that four persons who now have smallpox worked at the Lynch lumber camp and were sent away when they became ill. Many have been exposed.

SURVEYORS TO REPORT S00N Construction of the Branch Will Be of Great Importanoe to Butte-This City the Objective Coal Market. The Spokane Spokesman-Review says that it has been definitely decided to build a connecting link between the Great Northern and the Northern Pacific west of the Rocky mountains. The line will extend from Kalispell, Mont., on the main line of the Great Northern, to a point on the Northern Paciflc west of i ifsoula. It is reported that the party of Great Northern surveyors which has been in the district for the past three months miaking a complete survey will be ready to report plans and specifications by March 1, and the work of constructiun will begin as soon thereafter as bids can be received and contracts let. It develops that President James J. 11111 had. the. building of this line in view when he began negotiations for the control of the output of the Crow's Nest Coal company's mines at Fernile, B. C., and the merging of the c'reat Northern with the Northern Pacific and the Bur lington. The roid will be primarily a coal road, and will be constructed for the purpose of furnishing the Northern Pacific and the Burlington with coal. It is also conceded that President Hill h.cw in view the carrying out of the pro ject first formulated by the late Marcus Ialy to supply the Butte sm'-lters with British Columbia coal and coke. There is no liner coal in existence for coking than the Crow's Nest coal, and the build ing of the Kalispell cut-off will mean the construction of immense coking ovens in the country along the boundary. Work Will Soon Be Started. "While I do not want to be known In the matter, you can say that the pro posed line south from Kalispell to con nect with the Northern Pacific will be built next summer," said a St. Paul rail way contractor. "I am not at liberty to give the source of my information, but I am pocdtive of the facts. It will not be definitely known what the route will be until tWe surveyors nof @ys ting work .eke, thqir report, ,no s anownl'o esy that the road *lfl'9 low the western shore of Plathead lek., thence down the valley of the lathead river to a junction with the Northern Pacific, probably in the vicinity of Jookod 44 miles west of Missoula. "The distance between Kalispell and Jocko is about 65 miles, air line, and the distance via rail will not exceed 90 miles. The Crow's Neat coal fields will thus he reached by building a line north from Columbia Falls to the international boundary, or rather to connect with the Montana & Great Northern road from Jennings at a point near the inter national boundary. The Crow's Neat coal fields will thus be reached with about 75 mills of road, making the total distance from the coal mines to Jocko about 170 miles. The distance from Jocko to Butte via the Northern Pacific is 172 miles. Almost an Even Break. "It will thus be seen that both lines will have an equal haul in putting tile coal into Butte. The Great Northern will have the advantage of a down grade haul the entire distance, while the heavy work will be done by the North ern Pacific. As a result, the Great Northern, while getting an equal dis tribution of the revenue, will be in a position to earn more per mile on the same business than the Northern Pa cific, and thus keep the former road a little in advance of its formidable rival in the matter of earning capacity as com pared with expenses, an item that is never overlooked by President Hill. In fact, the Great Northern can deliver the coal destined for Butte to the Northern Pacific at Jocko at a less revenue and earn more than if it were to haul the coal the entire distance over its own line via Pacific Junction. "The Great Northern, to deliver Crow's Nest coal via its own line to the smelters at Butte, would have to haul it about 625 miles over the steepest grades on its system, hence the cost of hauling would more than equal the difference in rev enue If hauled via the shorter route, which will not exceed 350 miles. It is purely a business proposition, and, with the two roads now working in harmony under the consolidation, is 'bound to be a good one, and is but another instance of the business acumen of President Hill." Kalispell Will Be Cut Out. Corroborative evidence of the building of the proposed cut-off was given re cently by a railway contractor who ar rived from Jennings, after having com pleted a contract on the Jennings branch. He said: "I have seen with regret the efforts M2n Oil lae seather Gloves, 50c 2' WE HAVE too many Men's Leather Gloves---working and dress gloves; X o rtoo many men's half hose; entirely too much wool uuderwear.

HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS of the people of Kalispell to hypnotise themselves into the belief that the so called Kalispell-Libby cut-oft will be built by the Great Northern, apd that the route will run south of the present main line. This cut-off will never be built. The Jennings branch to the Crow's Nest coal fields is to be made a part of a new line which will cut out Kalispell altogether. "A road is to be built north from Co. lumbia Falls along the north fork of the Flathead river, thence west to connect with the Jennings (branch at Tobacco plains. There are two feasible routes. One is north along the north fork to Yak-in-i-'kak creek, thence west to its headwaters, and across the divide to Grave creek, down which an easy grade is found to a connection with the Jen nings branch near the international boundary. The second route is to extend the line along the north fork of Flathead river into British Columbia, thence west to connect with the Crow's Nest south ern road. Shorter Than It Looks. "The distance between Kalispell and Jennings via the present line is 81 miles, and while the proposed route appears to be a roundabout way, It will not exceed the present line over 20 miles, and will have a grade that will not be surpassed in any mountainous district in the coun try. The Jennings grade is at no place more than one-tenth of 1 per cent, and it is claimed that almost as good results can be obtained by the building of the line north from Columbia Falls. "The Columbia Falls line intp the Brit ish Columbia coal fields will connect at Kalispell with the proposed line south to the Northern Pacific at some point west of Missoula."
