OPERATIONS AT THE
Trouble Among Operators of Blackwell
Stamp Mill and Cyanide Plant
Ceorge M. Allen, formerly assessor of
Silver How county, came in from the
llomestake mining district today.
Mr. Allen says that mining operations in
and around Ilomestake are practically at
a standstill on account of the trouble
among the operators of the Blackwcll
stamp mill and cyanide plant there. "We
had considerable confidence in the mill
and cyanide plant," says Mr. Allen, "but
by reason of the trouble our plans have
been somewhat upset. The mill has been
shut down without demonstrating whether
it is a success or not. There is plenty
of ore in that district, but it is not rich
enough In gold to pay for shipping. If we
had a plant on the ground we could handle
the product of the properties to good ad
"The only work in progress there now
is being done by D. B. Vincent of Butte,
who is operating the Ilidden Treasure
tinder lease. lie does not know yet what
he has in the way of ore, as the property
is not sufficiently developed to determine.
The mine is owned by John Rouse, C.
Adams and C. II. Smith of this city.
'"I amt satisfied that if nothing had oc
curredl in thie operation of the mill and cy

dition to the mill would have saved the
values in the ore which the mill alone
would not save."

C. W. Enzie, employed as a clerk in
Lutey Brothers' store, in West Park street,
was captured by three men in Front street,
South Butte, last night, but managed to
escape from them before they had declared
their intention of either searching his
pockets or holding him for a ransom.
Whether they were regularly ordained
highwaymen or men who had lost on the
prize fight and desired to get even, is not
known, as they failed to tell Enzie any
thing about it.
Enzie had come from Columbia Gardens,
and got off the car at the corner of Utah
avenue and Front street for the purpose of
going to the Northern Pacific depot to take
the Burlington train East. It was then
about midnight. The men were in one of
the dark corners between Utah avenue and
the depot. He threw up his hands when
told to do so, but while one of the men
was searching him he broke away and ran
towards the depot. He telephoned the
matter to the police station and then went
