AN IMM[NS[ LEAD
It1KN SMllIT SAYS IT IS NINETY
NIGHT FEIh WIDE.
AMERICAN STANDARD GROUP
Development Work Is to Be Com
menced on It-Five-Stamp Mill
For a North Moccasin
Property.
John Smith of this city has located
two claims, the Surprise and Rock of
Ages, on an immense lead of low grade
ore, near HIghwood, 25 miles from tot, n,
gays the Benton River Press. The vein
assays $4.05 to the ton from a chunk
knocked off at the surface. The lead
ib easily traceable for 300 yards, to the
point where it dips under the overlying
granite, and is from 94 to 98 feet wide,
its depth being, of course an unknown
quantity. The lead may prove to be a
bonanza, but Mr. Smith has not much
faith In it at present. There Is no in
dication that it will pinch out, but It
seems stlange that It should he the only
vein discovered In the }llghwood moun
tains. It crops out of the base on tih
southwest side of the high ridge lying
east of the creek, just bIack of the lIar
ris and Lyng ranches and not over a
mile from a good road. Should it prove
a workable proposition the exlpnse of
handling the ore will be very light,
as coal, water and tiltmber are close at
hand. Mr. Smith will run an open cut
across the lead and then sink a shaft.
North Moccasin Mines.
Development work Is to be commance(,d
on the Amerlcan-Standard group of
mines in the North Moccasin and for
that purpose J. C. [tebb, one0 of the prin
cipal owners, will leave for the mines
tomorrow morning with an outfit of mnln
and camp supplies, says a Lewlistown
message to the GJreat Falls Tribune.
The claims are situated at the head
of Bedrock gulch, about a mile and a
half from the DIndal mines and at the
apex of the mountain and the develop
ment work already acol'('llllished ihas
tleen productive of very good results.
"A five-stamp mill wIll e In operatlion
on the property ownerd by lyon, I'elsing
& Oliphant, in the North Moccasin, at
an early datle and the work of placilng
the mill on the ground has alrea(dy been

DOWN SEVEN HUNDRED FEET
Farrell Shnft No. 2 has reached a
depth of 700 feet and as soon is IL sta

be resumed and continued to a depth
of 1,000l feel. A (ros.vut will then be

T. L. Oddle, manager of the Tonopah
Mining company of the new mining
district of Nevada, says that Tonopnh
is one of the greatest mining centers
In the West. His company owns a
few .aelims on the Mizpah ledge, which
has already yielded huridreds of thou
rands of dollars in gold. In speak
ing of the dlisrict to the Des'ret News
of Salt Luke, he said:
"In and around Tonopah are to be
found gold, sllver, lead and Iron In
aul)ndan~ce, all the necessary iIgredients
for smelting. There really should ie
a smelter at Tonopah and I understand
that a scheme is now afoot to l'eret it

SOUTHERN RAILROAD DEALINGS"
Unfavorable Crop Report Sent Out bnr
the Department-Opening Price of
Stocks a Fraction Nigher
Than Yesterday.
(By Associated Press.)
New York, April 12.-The're has been
noltable speculative activity this after
noon attributed to operations by a group'
of western capitalists prominent in the'
Iron and steel trade. Dealings have
shifted front Western railroads into the
Southern railroad field.
The sensational movement in Louls
ville gave rise to fears of a corner and
led to various surmises of a contest for
introl and of projects for important
extensiolis.
The fear of a corner In that stock, the
liability to flurries in the money market
and the unfavorable government crop
rpitort, colmbined to chill the ardor of
thie spelullation and led to considerable
sliling and I eatLion In prices.
A number of contingent interest bonds
were extremely active and strong for
un risclosed reasons.
Opening prices of stocks wvre a frac
tlorn higher ill around, except for Louis
ville. The sale of 2,500 shares of that
stock carried it down fromn l:it and 118%
to 118, but it iimmediately retounded and

other favorites.

cf a 40-stamp mill for treating the ores
of the company's properties. The work
nit the Hawmill will be 'oalmenced at
a,, :and will be completed before fall.
This, in addition to the 10-stamp mill
already in operation, will give the com
pany amnple facilities for the treatment
to the output of the Bear (tulch group
of minesn and will add much to the
activity of the district generally.
OPENING THE NOYA CLAIM
The Montana Mining company has ex
ttndeld its operations to the district dl
o.etly south of Helena, ha\ving begun
the development of the Noya claim,
owned by Jacob Shafer, in the ParK
district, says the Record. The company
has hope of striking another Drumlum
mtn in that section, where the Big
Indian mill is under construction.
The Noya is an undeveloped claim a
short distance up the hill from the old
W\Vhitlltch-Union, which is on the low
dlvide between Grizzly antl Oro Fino
gulches. It has large surface showing
of gold-bearing are and is on the great
contact between the lime and granite
-formations which has developed some of
the best mines in the vicinity of Helena.
Work has begun with six mIien in two
shlifts who are sinking a shaft with n
htorse whim. When the depth beromes
too great to make operations with the
whim impracticable, a steam hoist will
be erected.
Quaint, eueer, querlous.
The late Col. John Cockrell, in the Cos-.
mopolltan Magazine said: "There are
three unique cities in America and one
of these is Salt Lake City." All ticket
agents in the West are able to sell
through tickets to the East by the way
of Salt Lake and the Rio Grande route
-the scenic line of the world. Stop-over
privilege is allowed on tickets via this
route at Salt Lake City, Denver or any
intermediate point. The ;oute carries
the passenger through the very heart
of the Rocky mountains, amid the grand
