MONTANA IIIPROSPECTS ANi CAMPS _ NAD flNIN CAMP'S PRODUCERS MININ6 IN F[ROUS O1D TERRE RESEMBLES THAT OF ORIPPLE CREEK. CLAIMS TO BE DEVELOPED Company Is Well Satisfied With Its Property-Extension of Sapphire Vein Near Yogo Has Been Found. The property of the Central Montana 'Mines company is in an extremely satis factory condition, according to O. L. Taylor, the new president of the organ Ization, who, in company with Judge Nelson, completed a tour of investigation of the various mines last WVednesday, ar riving In the city on the evening of that day, says the Fergus County Argus. Mr. Taylor stated that he was well sit isfled with the condition (of the various properties and that it was the intention of the company to institute a vigorous -working policy in connect:on with its mines. In relation to the Spotted Horse prop erty, on which the mill has been shut down since Novemtbr, Mr. Taylor sael, that owing to the fact that part of the plant was not adapted to thie treatment of tho present formation of the ores no attempt would he made to treat the out put of the mines on the spot until it hid been conclusively determined, by ex ploitation, that the extent of the ore bodies warranted the erection of a plant capable of handling the ores In a manner which would be productive of good re suits. Like Cripple Creek Ore. A shaft has been sunk 150 feet below the old levels for purposes of develop ment and a large quantity of $20 and $30 ore is being placed on the dump. Ores of this value would not pay for shIp nent but it a sufficlent body of that nature is encountered it Is the Intention of the company to treat it by the smelt ing process at the mines. The ore, which was of the free milling variety, Is now almost identical with the product of the Cripple Creek country and is of the sylvanite variety, which is called graphi', tellurium, a tellurium of gold and sliver which contains untilmnory and more or less lead, necessitating treatment by the process of smelting. IM'r. Taylor mentioned that 10 sacks of high-grade ore are being extracted daily and a big consignment would be sent REPRODUCTION OF TEETH I make false teeth that are so natural in appear ance that they deceive your nearest relative.

"The Whisky Gulch property is doing well," said Mr. Taylor, "and no radical changes are In contemplation, though the plant will be worked to its full capacity." Tramway Is a Success. Nearly all the stockholders of the Cen tral Montana Mines company are Inter ested in the New Year property, and it was learned from Mr. Taylor that the outlook for that property was very bright and the ore now being treated assays from $5.50 to $6 per ton In gold. The tramway contracted for from the Montana Hardware company Is giving perfect satlsfaction and Is capable of giv Ing the mlll a bucket of or,. or 524 pounds (evry two seconds. It has been uscer tnlied that with the great facilities for obtatlning fuel and translorting the ore that the product of the New Year prop city canl le treated for 80 cents at tol. TIh tramway was turned over to the copllilly as finished and in good work ing order last Wednesday by Mr. Case, who .oprlKrintendedl its constrc.tion. Tihe policy adlopted by the ('entral Moiinta na Mines company will cause a Ilarge amount of development work to be awcompnllisledl this s.ason on Its various holdlings and there Is no doubt that the work during the coming season will greatly Increase the value of the proper ties. The Abbey Properties. ,'. S.

Yogo Sapphire Mines. As a result of further development an extnsilon of the sapphire vein of the New Mine ýSapphlre Syndicate has been discovered which equals In richi ness any portion of Its present hollings. The dis covery was mnadl(, a few days ago and is located about two miles from the main lead, being situated to the left of the Yogo road in the neighborhood of three miles from the old Paegel ranch. A tun nel has hreen run tn on the lead with very satisfactory results anti further de velopment work Is now In progress. There Is a force of 12 men engaged in working on the main lead, putting sap phire hearing clay on the dump in prep aration for this ieaseoins' operatlions. Were Thirteen Confirmations. New York, Feb. 17.-At the church ofr %lon and St. Anthony, a larg(e ongre gotlon heard HBishop Worthington of Nebiruaka, who administered the rite of confirmation in place of Bishop Potter, who hias not returned from the South. A (iihns of 13 was cohfilrmed. IN G(RIZZLY iGUL THE HOWARD MINE CONTA* BOME RICH ROOK. WATER INTERRUPTED WOC A New Shoot of Ore Struck Above W Moister Level-Ore Averages Prom 920.00 to ,25.00 Per Ton. The Howard mine on Grizzly gulch is still shipping ore at the rate of about two earloads a month. C. A. Sheldon, the lessee, has found a new ore-shoot where water does not trouble him, and Is mak Ing an upraise on It. 'When the shaft sunk from the tunnel reached the ore-shoot a great flow of water came In and, as there were no means of pumping it out, the attempt to mine this shoot had to be abandoned for the time. Mr. Sheldon continued prospecting, however, and struck this new shoot, on which the upraise has gone about 10 fe'et. The shoot Is a pipe similar to that on which the original shaft was sunk, sometimes narrowing to almost nothing and at others widening out Into a good sized .Whamber of ore. Some pieces of ore have been taken out, showing large chunks of gold and making fine spect tIens, but the ore averages from $20 to $30 a ton. WALL STREET PROPERTY. Some of the Ore Assays $1,700 Per Ton-Average $25. W. H. Godfrey, general manager at the Wall Street Mining company, prosecuting work on properties situatee in G(;eorgia gulch, about seven miles froir Sheridan, says the Sheridan Chinook, This group consists of seven claims, to all of which the company has a clear title. The property was purchased sev. eral months ago from Messrs. Keneally, Balsom & Reardon, and A. C. Green, who had it bonded. For some time after the papers were signed the company had some trouble, but happily that has been settled satisfactorily to all parties con cerned. Mr. Godfrey is a mining man of practical as well as the'oretical experis ence, and is giving his personal atten tion to the work. He is making only the necessary Improvements about the mines. He says when it is proved that the com pany has a mine, reduction works will be built. The development work cqnsliss of ove,, 500 feet of tunnels and .dlrifts, from nearly all' o~ which there has been ,wl tracted some rich ore. Mgqs, of the work how being done Is on ore for the benefit of the Comet. This claim hap produce4 hundreds of dollars, and present Indica tions are that it will resume its pid posi thion among the dividend payers. A con tract was recently awarded to Weimer & Son to continue a tunnel 100 feet fur ther, and they have begun the work. It is thought this tunnel will tap the lead and give several 'hundred feet' of stoping ground. Another tunnel has been planned to tap the, lead of the original discovery at a depth of 400 feet. It will be run on a gold vein, an extension of the Gilbert lead, the ore of which assays as high as $1,700 to the ton, but averages about $25. Thus far the work has been conducted on business principles, and by that man-, ner the company has the confidence of, the community. A good road leads to the properties from Sheridan, and timber. is near by. It is understood that ship-, nments will begin in the near future. DAYTOIN CREEK MINES. The Jumbo Is Yielding Some Speci-' mens of Galena. A spic(lal from Kalspelll to the Great Falls Tribune says: Samuel Hilburn returned this morning from a trip to his mining prospects at Dayton creek, bringing with him a large number of fine specimens of the galena ore that is being taken from the shaft he is sinking on the Jumbo. Besides that claim, Mr. Hilburn owns a number of others adjoining, and for a good many years he has been keeping up the assess ment work and holding fast his faith in the region, while more timid men have dropped out. Now it begins to look like he would get his reward. Besid.s him, there are a number of others who have claims in the district, and the project of putting them all in one strong com pany Is talked of. EVA MAY MUDDLE. Mr. Best of Milwaukee Looks Over the Situation. 0. R. Best of Milwaukee. president of the Eva May Mining company, was a lBasln visitor the firat of the week, look ing after the com'yany's business here, with a view of untangling the financial' embarrassment that the company is in at present, says the Basin Progress. Mr. Best is confident that everything will' be straightened out in a very short time to the satisfaction of all concerned, and' that the work will be resumed In a short time at the company's property. He re-t turned East Thursday evening. AS THEY WOUILD DO IN WAR. Navy General Board Has Plane fort Fleet Training. Washington, Feb. 17.--An Important' recommendation for the navy by the1 general board, of which Admiral Dewey is president, is that the winter and sum mer evolutions of the North Atlantlc Squadron be carried on more in detail for the better training of both offlcerr and men. The board urges more extensive drills off the New England coast this summer and asks that a special appropriation be made for the purpose. It is estimated that the Lgn will cost $120,000, which is also to Include the expense for. uelx winter's evolutions in the West Indies. The regular naval approprlatiohs, on tain no provisions for these' expensc, and congress will be asked to make stPe clal provision. The board states that the above estt mate is small compared with the cost of maintenance of the fleet, the fficelency of svhloh depends upon the training of of flcers and men. It is also argued that the need of this sum Is emphasised by the Joint maneuvers with the army and militia, from which highly beneficial re suits are anticipated. Naval reorganization is now being dis cussed by the board, which will recom mend some radical changes In the ar rangement of both the line and the staff personnel. The changes suggested in the selection of naval constructors were . prompted by lack of line officers. In the general changes now being considered it Is said the board favors an organization based on the German staff system, which re ceived Mr. Roosevelt's indorsement when he was assistant secr.etary of the navy. Few ofcers paid much attention to hit opinion then, but his views on such matters are pertinent now. O0PPER AND COPPER SEH&RES. Amalgamated Surplus till Important Factor in Market. Boston-N. L. Amster & Co., in their weekly market letter, say: "The supposition that the surplus of copper which the Amalgamated accumu lated in its endeavor to sustain a 17-cent cupper market in the past two years, Is now no more a factor in the metal mar ket, is erroneous. That copper is still an important factor in the copper situ ation, notwithstanding that it may have changed ownership, for while this sur plus, which is said to be approximately "50.000,000 pounds, may have been taken up Iy consumers and speculators, it is .till in existence and is sufficlept to supply the world's demand for four months. In the meantime, the copper mines of the world are turning out cop. per faster than ever, for which there must also be found a ready market. "A little figuring will soon disclose the fact that the difference between last year's price of copper of 17 cents and this year's price of 12 cents per pound will amount to $10,000,000 per annum on Amal gamated's production: $4,650,000 on Calu met's production; $700,000 on Osceola's production; $1,100,000 on Qulncy's pro d(uction and $1,000,000 on Tamarack's production, which means a reduction of 50 to 75 per cent in the dividends of those companies. Now, then, if 12-cent copper will thus affect the earnings and divi (lends of the world's best known mines, how will it affect ather mines that are not of as high a standard?" HE -.WILL ar- arN. Came Over Poor But Returns Worth $90,000. Thomas Mulhern, of County Dublin, Ireland, who canie over here in the steer age of the ed.harder Etruria last Decem ber end' was held at Ellis Island in im ninent danger of being deported because * had no iidneS;, will return to his native land next month carrying back a fortunel. ' "+; ,.xt fadlllhonlas, Who is 65 years of age, releived 'a letter from an old ac qtaintance advising him to come over to this country at once if he wished to see his only'brother, Patrick Mulhern, before the latter died.' The writer also hinted that Patrick was well-to-do and would probably reward Thomas for taking the long journey. The two Mulherns were born In County Dublin, and a number of years ago Pat rick scraped together enough mnoney to come to this country. He went to Maine, \\.hre he settled and eventually became rilh from land trades. At the time their common friend wrote to Thomas to come over Patrick was 90 years old and rapidly failing in health. Peter Groden, former immigrant detec tive, and ow representing the Irish Im migrant Society at Ellis Island, took an i'tcelest in the penniless old man, and by lint of much correspondence located the I: other in Sullivan, Maine. Patrick sent the necessary money and Groden saw Thomas on board the train for a reunion pith his brother in Maine. Yesterday Groden received a letter say llg that the older brother had died and l ft Thomas $90,000 and that the old man is determined to go back to Ireland with 'his fortune and spend his decllning years among his friends and kindred on the old sod.-[tecord-Herald. SCHWAB'S SALARY Bears Tremendous Responsibility, and Is Cheap at the Price. The fact that Mr. Charles M. Schwab, president of the United States Steel cor pIration, "heads the world's pay roll," with a salary of $225,000, a sum more than do,u,le paid to the chief executives of other great corporations whose remuner ttlojn has been considered generous, and nearly twice the salary of the president of France, need occasion no surprise, nor doh)s it argue extravagance on the part of the corporation to which Mr. Sc.hwab gives his services. C'onsidering the enormous capital in 've.sted in the steel business controlled bIy this company, the vast range and ,com(plexity of the Interests involved, and all the heavy responsibilities going with the direction of such an enterprise, the salary paid is proportionately no greater, if it is not actually less, than that re ceived by other kings, potentates and captains of industry. Men capable of governing republics like France are not so rare as men who have the gifts required to successfully conduct a gigantic business enterprise suh as that over which Mr. Schwab pre sides, and such laborers, like all pthers, are "worthy of their hire."-Leslle's Weekly. IAmerick's Pretty Girls.. There is a freshness of face, lustrous ness of eyes, healthfulness of color and complexion about the Limerick girls that carry off the sweepstakes trophy. The girls of Cork and of the Lakes-in ac~t, of the country all the way down (tom Dublln--are somewhat of the Limerick order. In tfom they constitute a happy medium between the rotund English maids across one channel and the sylph like Parisian demoiselles beyond the other. But the Limerick face is the per fection of female beauty--a. human cer amic without a blemlish.--St, James Ga gette.

In 190 there were 1,881 organizations, with a total membership of 276,141, including 14,618 women. The rate of increase 1a4 declined for the past three years, Qmti ever, and the recent rapidity of grbwth, it is believed, is not likelyrto be nma.l tained.

Since 1808 the mem- S bership of New York city labor uinion has increased 80 per cent, while th6 " membership in the rest of the state hag Increased 124 per cent. New York City has a membership three-fourths greater than all the rest of the state put together. Pittsburg's trade unions are demand ing a general advance. The highest in crease asked for is by the painters. Their have been receiving $2.80 and now want $3.50 for an eight-hour day. The electrical . workers ask an increase from 40 cents an hour to 50 cents an hour. The scalq Is al eady prepared, but does not go into effect until May 1, 1908. J. H. Darrah, of the hoisting engipeer,. said that hi organization would aIk %n increase tt 50 cents an hour. They are at presept getting 33 cents an hour. The same pro7 portion of increase is being asked for" by most of the other trades. • . . . Most of the organizations increase. about 75 per cent in membership from 1894 to 1901, but the metal, machinery and shipbuilding industries .showed an in crease of almost 400 per cent, while the organized public employee increasee over 400 per cent. Clothing and toba c. organizations had the smallest incre s -about 10 per cent. The largest gr 6p' of organized workmen is composed of those in the building trades, who make up 31 per cent of all unionists reporting to the department. Next in order are the three groups of clothing and tex tiles, machinery and shipbuilding, and the transport trades, which, together, make up 40 per cent of the aggregate membership of the state.
