Rai.xiohA Clarek,
Agroup of gentlemen were yesterday^discussing the subject of ^ salting^ mines^and bow little of it bad been carried on suc^^cessfully in Montana. One instance was^cited where a partial success had been^in Beaverhead county four years ago by^Phil Shenon and others, by which they^made 580,000, but the timely discovery of^tne scheme prevented a loss to competent^California mining men of an additional^S50,0U0. ^That,^ said the gentleman,^^was a clever case. Phil had a prospect^in which be found several rich pockets of^ore. He went to work on a piece of ground^close by and put a shaft down seventy^feet. He poured a great deal of water In^the bottom rnd then threw his rich ore in^and carefully filled up the shaft again so^that not a trace was visible on top to show^that tbe ground had been torn up. He^then went to work and drove a tunnel to^tap this ore which he had placed^in the shaft and a drift which^he made at the bottom. There was a whole^lot of good ore there, tbe 'vein' being^fully fifty feet Ion.:. His tunnel progressed^rapiJly and in the course of time he 'struck^it rich.' It did not take long for this to^get out, and in the course ot time a deal^was made and as a first payment Phil re^^ceived 530,000. The purcasers set a force^of men to work and had some slight trou^^ble with water, but that was a good indica^^tion. The vein was penetrated about thirty^feet when, unfortunately for Phil, a pine^chip was found in some of the ore and tbe^fraud was frustrated.
Therewas another close call in the^Pipestone district a few years ago,^ said^another gentleman, ^and had it not been^for A. J. Davis, a fnend of his and an ex^^pert miner, would have been 510,000^poorer. A pair of pilgrims drove a tunnel^some distance and then bored a lot ot sir ill^holes in the rock. They prepared some^kind of a chemical solution mixed with^gold and injected this into the rock, and^then carefully packed the hole with the^drillings taken out and sealed the boles up^to perfection. Assays were afterwards^made, which ran high, and the would-be^purchaser went to Davis and told him of^the bonanza he had. 'I'll let you have the^money,' said Davis, 'but postpoue the sale^for ten days, as 1 think something is^wrong.' It was with much difficulty the^postponement was secured, and meautime^the lead was further developed and tbe^smell of the acid gave the 'snap' away.^Tbe owners of this same property suc^^ceeded in fleecing some gentlemsn ^ f the^Blue Bird company out of 51.000 a year^later.
Thecamp of Butte contains the most re^^markable mass of mineral ever developed^in any country. At first free gold was^found, and this in tbe placer diggings, and^later gold quartz was found in tbe vicinity^of the diggings. When tbe placer mines^were pretty well worked out silver in great^abundance was found, and it became^equally as famous for lis silver deposits as^for its gold beds. Ten years ago nobody^knew ot its wonderful and extensive ledge-^of copper ores and now to-day it has th^^largest copper mines of the world, and sti.l^the surface has only been scratched, the^deepest workings of the camp not being^below 1.000 feet. Not a hole has been^made in the ground that did not pay for^the expense of digging it in every case,^while every nine out of ten have^proven paying mines. There is ore under^every foot ot the streets and bills and this^was demonstrated again a few days ago.^In connection with this the Inter Moun^^tain of Tuesday has the following: ^The^lact that Rutte is situated on one great^mountain of ore has been often illustrated,^but never more forcibly than by tbe fact^recently developed, that it is impossible to^put down water and gas pipe and excavate^for sewers without making rich strikes of^pay ore. Rast week, while the work^^men of the water company were^laying pipe on Montana street,^they made a strike of IrjO-ouuce silver rock,^free milling, between Park and tlalena^streets. At the top of the trench the pay-^streak waa four inches In width, and at^the bottom it had widened to ten. The^strike was made on the William Penn lode,
tustnorth of tbe Morning Mar. Messrs.^)avis, Wallace and Clark took a lease on^tbe Penn and have begun sinking on the^ground just east of Montana street in Por^^ter's lot. When they cross-cut for the^lead it will probably carry them into the^Destroying Angel, and they have secured^a lease on that ground also and will thor^^oughly develop the strike.
TheDestroying Angel lode spoken of^takes in the principal business portion of^tbe city, beginning at Broadway and Mon^tana streets and running along Park street^to Arizona street.
InterMountain: The old Clark's smelter^at Meadervtlle, a part of the Boston ^ Mon^^tana Copper company's plant, is at present^in a state of suspension, owing to some^very much needed repairs and improve^^ments at tbe works, together with a scarc^^ity of water. At the Old Colusa mine the^tbe milters were laid off for two weeks, as^they were so informed at the time. At the^Harris A Lloyd tunnel all work that was^not absolutely necessary is suspended^tirely. The Mountain View will confine^itself to working entirely on its first-class^ore and and the second will be stored in the^mine until work is again resumed on tbe^old basis. At tbe West Colusa no reduc^tion in the working force has been made.
TheSouthern Cross company has formed^a new pool of its heavy stockholders, the^old pool expering July 1. The new ar^^rangement is to be in force six months.^Work at the mine for the past few weeks^has been confined to making a connection^between the 150 foot level (110 feet from^the shaft) and the surface for ventilation.^Toward this work an upraise ^ f 91 feet has^been made, all in ore, and a shaft from^above sunk 30 feet to meet the upraise.^This shaft is also all in ore after reaching a^depth of 12 feet. The air shaft will be com^pleted by the end of this week. Then the^150 and 250 foot levels will be carried west^to a point 350 feet from the shaft. They are^now in 125 feet, all in ore. This develop^^ment will, it is held, place in sight, at a^conservative estimate, a two years' supply^of ore for a 60-stamp mill, that being the^size of mill which the company has deter^^mined to build.
Acorrespondent of the Salt Rake Tri^^bune, writing from tbe Cueur d' Alenes, has^the following to say of the country sur^rounding Murray: ^One thing satisfied onr^party, and that is this: Murray is situated^in the heart of one of the greatest gold^belts on the American continent, and the^day is not far distant when its praises will^be sung to the clinking bars of gold bul^lion and the rattle of the yellow dust that^is so plentifully scattered along its rivers^and is to be found for digging in every^gulch, bar and run within a radius of thirty-^miles of Murray.
