BUTTE MEN THINK IT IS A BONANZA BEAR MOUNTAIN PLACER MINING COMPANY BELIEVE THEY HAVE STRUCK IT RICH.

Several Butte men are heavily inter. ested in a pl;cer property in (;ranite county which promises good retrturns for their investment.

The lessees have out about half a carload of shipping ore, although but little of it is of the grade of the sample brought to town. One of the best samples procureable will be sent to the mitining congress for exhi bition and at toe conclusion of the meet. ing will be presented to the school of The Iluron mine was a famous producer in the early days of the mlinining industry of Montana and. in all probability, it pro duced some of the richest silver quartz ever mined in the state. In the early days, many tons of silver quartz, assayinlg as high as 3oo ounces to the ton, were picked utp amlllng the float rock oni the surface and shipped with profitable results. The present owners do not expect to revolutionize mining matters, but if the present shoot holtds out for a few months, they will lie able to take a most comfort able stake from the old Huroh ground. Recently solne miners from Rutte andll other towns spent a few days in the Blue Wing district.

EXHIBITS WILL BE AS FINE AS ANY YET SEEN Could Be Sent on to the Mound City With Comparatively Little Expense Collections Are Beginning to Come in Rapidly, and by Tomorrow a Very Creditable Showing Will Be on Hand. T'hose who have the mining interests of the state of Montana at heart will be pleased to learn that there is a move ment on foot to take the exhibit now being gathered at Columbia Gardens to the world's fair at St. Louis. The cost of getting together an exhibit is consider able. It is proposed to keep collecting and classifying all ores that can be se cured and when the time comes it will be but a small matter and cost comparatively little for the state to pack up the cases anid ship them to St. Louis. It would be Impossible, no matter what the exprense or trouble, to secure a better or more representative exhibit of minerals than that being collected at Columbia Gardentl. The system with which it is being arranged will make the change a simple matter. Each individual piece i, being accounted for, and a full history kept, so that any one desiring infor;na ion can secure it with little trouble. As Good as the Best. There are two private collections now at the Gardens which for both beauty and value are the equal of any niinera d;s. play in the world. tiOne of them bonlgs to the Iloston & Montana Mining co pan,. and the other is the property of 4. G. l'ohndorf. Among the ores already received are some beauttiful pyritic and peacock cop. per ore from Nevada. Several rich speci mens are from lBernice, in Jefferson coun ty. Very rich samples have come in from the Britaniia mine, in Butte. One of the most interesting exhibits so far received is some chalco-pyritic specimens from the Ada mine, to miles north of Basin, in Jefferson county. More than $..ooo worth of ore has been shipped from this prop erty. Already nearly every county in the:state is represented and by tomorrow it # ex pected that there will be a very credit ablc showing.
