STUCK RIGHT TO HER WORK Bar Husband Hustled the Food--Ore Assays 8,000 Ounces of Silver and Some Gold Per Ton. For years Mrs. John Kay has been de veloping the King mine near Mineral Park, says Our Mineral Wealth of Kings man, Ariz. The tenderfoot may think we mean that she hired the work done, but not so. Mrs. Kay entered the mine her self and hit the head of a drill with the energy of hope. She cut the fuse, hit the cap, tamped the powder and return ed into the smoke to see the result of the shot just like an old miner, which she is. "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick," but nothing could shake her faitn that riches were In that mine, maybe in one more shot. While Jack rustled on the outside for grub to feed the hurr'o and for powder Mrs. Kay was putting in hard licks in search of the pay streak. Vein of Rich Ore. Monday she went back after a round of holes prepared to go through the old routine of shoveling out the rock. "Eu reka." The shots had uncovered the largest and richest body of ore ever open ed in the Park district. Iig chunks of ore plastered with horn sliver lay oin heaps where the powd'er had thrown them. Assays show the ore to be worth 8,000 ounces silver per ton and some golil. Great excitement prevails at the l'ark, and old-timers are predicting a return of the prosperity of other days for thei Park when the county seat was there and champagne flowed like water. Verily, perseverance has its reward. THE WINSCOTT MILL. Work on the Site Is in Progress- Ma chinery Will Arrive Soon. Colin McIntosh, manager of the Virn scott mine, and under whose direction the new 60-stamp mill will be erected, is in the city today, says the Helena lHer aid. Manager Mclnto.;h stated that work was progressing slowly at the siti' of the new mill. As the giound is frozen, the work of excavating on the rite cannllot be pushed rapidly. Only a small force Is employed, but as soon as the excavating is completed, the work will be pushed upon the building itself. About 24 shots a day are fired to loosen the ground aid permit it to be removed. The machinery f,or the mill is hilnig manufactured at Millwaukee, where Man ager Mclntoch designed most of It. Irl a few weeks the first of the' machinery will begin to arrive. There will be more than 500,000 pounds of the machinery in the aggregate, all of whlih will be shipped over the Northern Pacific.

TRAIL LEADS FROM STITES Good Prospecting Ground En Route The Oregon Short Line Says Ditto for Its Side of the Range. compecltlon for patronage on Thunder Mountain travel has broken out be tween the Oregon Short lfne and North ern Paclfic roads. Each company is Is suing maps and clr'culars showing the advantages its respective route or routes have over the other company's route. One takes passengelrs into the coun try via the South and the other via the North and anyone (lesiring to go to Thunder Mountain can take his choice of passes, imountains, creeks or any other way and find thern all hard enough. 'The tOregon Short line says It has the ,only route and the Northern t'aciile rays the other fellow's road is rocky, while its own trail is strewn with bunch grass and roses. It further says: The real Thunder Mountain is sit uated, more particularly, Just west of the middle fork of the Salmon river and not far from its Junction with the Hal mon. It is !Ittle southeast from War rens, not far south from Vinegar I111 of the malls, and its distance from Warrens is about 65 miles, by trail at present. Some statements give the dis tance from Warrens as much less than this, but recent and apparently trust worthy surveys make the correct dis tance 65 miles. The mountain lies about 15 miles south from Big ('reek and 20 miles west from the middle fork of the Salmon river. The drainage of the dlstrict runs principally to the north, Monumental creek, which flows north Into Big ('reek, and Marble creek, which Ilows directly west into the middle fork of the Salmon,' being the principal streams heading about the mountain. To the north of the main Salmon are the mining camps of Elk City, Dixie, Florence and huffalo Hump. -South of the Sahnlmon are several mining distridts, the best known of which is Warrens. Have Produced Millions. These old camps have In their tway produced many millions of dollars, and are still producing. That the moun tainous part of Idaho is a rich mineral region is well known. It is, however, a very rough, inaccessible country and road and trail building is hari and ex pensive work. The trouble with Idaho minitng has been the lack of transporta tion facilities, both wagon and rali,;ild. and the tremendous expens.e lnvolvt in providing theem. Along with the development of the ag rihultural interests has gone that of the inning interests. Recognizing the inmportance of a main artery of travel and c('ommlunlu'ation from Spokane and Lewistown southward Into the Idaho Inountains, the state, at heavy expense, ctonstruc(ted a statie road through h'rangeville and Florence to Warrens, building a 'bridge across the Salmon river. Another good road runs from (irattgeville through Newsome and Elk c'ity to Dixie. Tlhe Northern Pacific ('learwater Short Line. extending south from Spokane to Lewiston, through the fertile Palouse country, winds up the tnaln clearwater river 74 miles to Stites. about 16 miles front Grangeville and 36 milet's from Newsomle. Another route leads from Grangeville through White bird, Freedom, Goff, up the. Salmon to the state bridge and via Resort or llurgd).rfs to Warrens, It Is Mountainous. All travel to the mining distrlcts of Idahlo is necessarily mnountain travel, Ibut the roads are, as far its constructed, good and of tas light grades as possible. A good part of the travel to the minlng ('alnlps Itust, of course, be by trail from the lnearer' towns and settlemnents, until the growth of the country justlfles addi tltnal roads and railways. As the ele vation of tilhe mountain country ranges front 6,000 to 9,000 feet above the sea, and the snowfall in the mountains is heavy, the winter season there is one of little work and practically no travel, locomotion being possible on snowshoes only. It is on the remote northern slopes of Sawtooth range that Thunder Mountain is situated, and while there are one or two routes from the south to the dis trict, the crossing of this range seems to present a practically insuperable ob stacle in fall, winter and spring. The northern line of aplproach, which will vary somnewhat among the three routes heretofore nanted-atctording to the season and one's lpreferences-.seems to Ihe in all ways the preferable one. 'here is practlcally no dllfference in mileage, and the routes from the north are open six weeks earlier In spring and six weeks later in fall than any from the south, and ('ross fewer divides. Ti~ extreme altitude reached on the north ern route is at least 2,000 feet less than Iby the southern. An important point, in this 'espect, Is the opportunity afforded, at the north, of procuting supplies all along the route and the superior facill ties for pasturage of riding and pack altimals. There is a great difference in wild grasses, and those north of tihe Sawtooth range are of the bunch grass sort, not pine grass, the latter being of no value whatever. Another advantage of the northern. route or routes is found In the fact @bat there is good pIrospecting and mhiing ground all the way fromn Stltes to Thun der Mountain. Opportunities for Mining. Within 40 miles of Btites there are lne' opportunities for mining, and the entire region will repay exploratlon. The Bui falo Hump section is In the midst of a mineralized zone that Is destined to be come an Important mining center, and undoubtedly many of those starting for Thunder Mountain will stop by the way. Of the three routes from Stites to Thunder Mountain the one via Grange vllle, Whlteblrd, Goff, State Bridge and Warren is the longest, being about 198 miles. It, however, avoids more snow in NAIS RtSTOfRO XRWrUIN AMD, TLLrAN M AT man tx war as w sy w nmaw. WILL BE LEFT TO THE SEItATE Snator Turner Was Right and Pred dent Pro-Term nrye Makes Apology and E.planation - Attend Memorial Service. (By Associated Press.) Washington, Feb. 28.-Under special order, the senate convened yesterday at 11:45,. In order that it might attend in a body the services in memory of the late President William McKinley, held in the hall of the house of representa tives at 12 o'clock. As soon as the body had been called to order Mr. Frye, the president pro tem, said that by his direction on last Monday the clerk had not called the names of the two senators from South ('arolina, they being in contempt of the body. On Tuesday, he said, he had directed the clerk to restore the names to the roll In the event of a rolicall. He had done this, not because he doubted the propriety of his action on Monday, but because a very grave ques tion was involved, which he desired to submit to the renate itself. Mr. Frye said that the senator from Washington (Mr. Turner) had taken an appeal from the decision of the chair on Monday, but amid the cloud of points of order and objections, he (Frye) had overlooked and forgotten the ap peal and had proceeded with other busi ness. For his forgetfulness he begged the pardon of the senator from Washington. Had he done such a thing wilfully, he said, he could never have forgiven him sel:. Tillman Asked to Be Heard. Mr. Frye said he had received a letter from the senior senator from South Carolina, Mr. Tillman, requesting that he be heard on a question of highest privilege. The chair could not entertain such a request under the circumstances without the unanimous consent of the senate, but at the proper time-perhaps tomor row-such request might be entertained. Mr. Turner called attention to the fact that he had asked that the pro test of the senior member from South Carolina be spread upon the minutes. He had desired, he said, to insist upon this request Monday, but had been cut off by points of order and by a mo tion that the senate go into executive session. Since that time two adjourn ments of the senate had Interfered with the performance of his duty. Mr. Turner maintained that the filing officilally of his. protest was in accord ance with the custom of the British parliament and with the best parlia mentary practice of this country upon any question involving a constitutional privilege. Spread Upon the Minutes. "T're senator is right," said the chair man," and the protest will be spread upon the minutes without objection." It was so ordered. Mr. Burrows of Michigan, chairman of the committee on privileges and elec tions, said that at the proper time an opportunity might be afforded the senior senator from South Carolina to make his statement on privilege, but just now he felt constrained to object. Mr. Hoar suggested that the protest spread upon the minutes be referred to the committee on privileges and elec tions. "I have no objections," said Mr. Tur ner. Mr. Bacon of Georgia said it occurred to him that the protest was a matter for further action by the senate. It cer tainly was a question of too great im portance to dispose of hastily. Mr. 'Hoar contended that the protest the winter, and seems to be favorably looked upon by prospectors. The state road via Grangevilll, Flor ence and Warrens is about 168 miles long, leads directly south to Warrens, and it is said that there are way sta tions about every 15 miles. Some es timates give the distance as much less than this. The route from Stites through New some and Elk City to Dixie and Thunder Mountain is variously estimated from 138 to 164 miles long. The road proper ends at Dixie, but the trail from there via Campbell's rtach and Chamberlain basin is said to be good and to be used all the year. The trail between Dixie and Thunder Mountain is being thor oughly re-worked, and mail is being car ried over that route. We give the in formation that seems reliable as to each route, and those going into the country can use their own judgment at Stites as to which route ,to select. Thunder Mountain camp has been known since 1897, when the Caswell brothers located the Golden Reef claim as a placer. The Caswells sold to Colo nel Dewey, who opened up a mine that developed wonderfully. A 10-stamp mill was taken In by pack train, and report states that the ore has proved phenom enally rich. Already a territory three miles and .two miles wide has been staked. The formation seems to 'be principally a diorite with some phonolite, and the moineral-bearing deposits a ground-up quartz, recemented by heat and then thrown out by volcanic action in the form of dykes. The region has been compared geologically with the Cripple Creek district in Colorado, the rock here, however, being soft and easily worked. There is a free gold belt and the copper indications are fine. The general eleva tion of the district is about 7,500 feet above sea level. In anticipation of heavy travel to ceri tral Idaho, Buffalo Hump, Thunder Mountain, etc., arrangements will no doubt be made at Stite8 and all points south to care for it. Transportation lines will be ready by the time the roads and trails are in condition, and the latter will be put in condition at the earliest pos sible date. Mt. Idaho, 30 miles fromh Stites, is the county seat of Idaho coun ty, in which Thunder Mountain is siti ated. Spokane and Lewlston are the principal outfitting points for the region, but the towns en route will be prepar'd to supply such articles as may 'be re quired by prospectors and miners going Into the country.

Government Will Make New Tariff Against United States. (By Associated Press.) Montreal, Feb. 28.-Mr. Arch Camp bell, M. P. for West York, a prominent supporter of the government was the principal speaker at the annual banquet of the Montreal Manufacturers' asso ciation and created a sensation by de claring he had come to the conclusion that the time had arrived when the gov ernment should give the Canadian man ufacturer increased protection against the United States manufacturer who, under the present tariff, was making Canada a slaughter house for her own production. He believed that the government, al though he was not authorized to say so, would at the present session of parlia ment, introduce a tariff bill which would surely prevent this and be of the great est benefit to Canada.
