Now that the Fourth of July property in the Okanaogan country has proven itself to be a mining proposition that is satisfactory to the men who have developed it, follow lan in the footsteps of many formper Inter priss of this kind, where nooducted by stock companies, the ien who have seanred a controlling power have decied to suspend operations. There are differenes of opinion as to this move npon the part of the amanagement, and in tant of any other explanation, that offaered by Messrs. Kaufmah d T.nb*her, of St. Louis, is given. These entlemen, in company with President .. L Clark and Bam Schwab and a son of Mr. Teusoher, have just returned fron a inspection of the property. They ar well satisfied with its showing. "We have a first-elass pro e t," skid Mr. Kaufaman to a reporter. he showing is very fine; but we have not a mine yet; it requires evelopment before it can be called a mine. "Why was work ordered atopped?" "We have decidedtolse down for the winter; in fact nothing more will be done until we have railroad connection with the outside world. Both the Northern Pacifico and Great Northern companies have lines located to the Ruby City district and through the Okanogan valle and one or both of them will be completd early next year. Until we secure cheap transportation facilities we will not be able to ship ore for treatment and derive a profit. When we get rail connection. however, work will be resumed and vigorously prosecuted." Them it is the intention to ship all the prodoct to reduction works." ' At the beginning, at least. As I said before the Fourth of July is yet but a pros pect. When it is thoroughly developed and should prove what we hope for, the advisa bility of ereoting a reduction plant at the mine will be considered." Messrs. Teuseher and Kaufman leave for home to-day and will spend a few hours in Butte. Mr. Teusoher spent the summer in Europe, returning to St. Louis on the 14th t. On the 18th he started west with Mr. ttfman for the purpose of inspecting the ourth of July mine. They put in about four days staging in northern Washington. Mr. Tenacher is enthusiastic over the pres ent and future possibilities of Washington as an agricultural state. Some of the largest vegetables and finest hop fields he ever saw, he noticed while journeying through the new state. TEE MONTANA COMPANY. A Dividend Declared-Bright Outlook of the Drum Lummon. On the 15th inst. the old reliable Drum ummop;mine will pay dividend No. 2, aggregating $42,000. The half yearly report of this (the Mon tana, limited) company has been received, and, as usual, is concise and comprehen sive, containing much general and detailed information of the affairs of the company. During the past six montbhs ending June 80, the total output of the mine was $570.768.88. The operating and prmanent improvement expenditures were $65.862.48, a decrease of nearly $20,000 as compared with the expenditures during the corre sponding period of 1889. The following, taken from the Lobdon directors' report, has a double intenbt to Montana miners. Besides furnishing news of the Drum Lummon yield, it shows con elusively what efect, in favor of the silver interests, a free coinage measure would have had. The report says: "Durinr the six months ending 80th of June, 1899, the mills crushed 88,986 tons, producing a yield in bullion bars and con centrates on assay of $570,768.888 equivalent to $14.64 per ton, but the astual realised value of the bullion and concentrates amounted to only 89,77.65, givin an av erage per ton of $12.6 net yild, the differ ence being 0,998.28, or 14.198er cent. "As tated in previous ports, the difer oncs betweyn the aessay value . the yield and its realised value rensults from the de preliation of the market value of silver be low the United States standard value of $1.20 per ounce; and also from the eost of cyr rt e and smelter a . on Ides of egrrage and smelter's charges, cm sales of eneentrattes." The reports of General Maua B T. Bayliss and Superintendent . H. Robinson both agree in saying that the future of the mine was never better. -A great deal of p osp t.e work was done, reresentin U lheareet.

Mr. Denial Welsh Is ae.,* the staIekhold he .dlk koo _krll twedm the fustllo dsrd opment of the poperty. He has been un out of Mr Schwab as to the ltter intentions. Mr. Sehwab says if the othe stookholders want to advance the neeesar funds to insure a resummption o ooperetions they can go ahead, but he is detetmined not to go-to any more expense until he is reim bursd for whst he ba done in the pest. It Io t at all improbable, however, that Mr. Schwab would entertain a proposition to purchase the holdinge of eertain stockhold era whom he would prefer to see out of the company. Without the co-operation of Schwab b Zimmermanm however, it is im probable that the stockholders will be able to accomplish anyh at the forthcoming meeting.

' Wins Hit Damage afit tn'It. Supreme The light Over the Will of A-. drew J. Devis Now On. r A New and stringent .ale Goveramig the Admisalen of Lawyers to Praetlse Other Cases. * The supreme court of Montana reassem bled yesterday, with a full beach, Judges Blake, DeWitt and larwood, and rendered a decision which settles the question of the responsibility of muniipal corporations for injuries to person by reason of neglect to kep the streets in proper condition. It was the eaes of Jerry T. Sullivan, who was injured on August 5th. 1888. He claimed it was due to carelessness on the part of the city in not having its sidewalks kept in proper condition The districtr 'eat awarded him $600 for the damagese sa tained. The city appealed, and the su preme court yesterday affirmed the decision of the district court in favor of Sullivan. The opinion in the ease was prepared by Judge Blake, and among the authorities cited is a decision, by the suprese cour. of the United States to the effsct that manici palities upon which the duty is imposed of keeping its streets in repair are liable for any special damage arising out of negleet to do so. It is held that while there was no law expressly mak ing municipal corporations responsible for damages to persons injured by defeets in the street, the city of Helena assumed for itself the care of its highways within the original townsite, and granted the right to an individiual to make the excavation which caused the saoident. "We can presume," says the. opinion, "that the rule stated by the supreme court of the United States was satisfactory. We think it is our duty under these conditions to adhere to the dootrine which has been recognized for upward of twenty-five years within the confines of Montana, and which seems to be upheld by the weight of modern authority. The doctrine of liability works well and is just since no stimulus to the performance of duty is more effectual than the wholesome fear of the verdict of a juryfor damages." THE DAVyI WILL CASE. ounsel Not Ready and the Matter Gees Over a Day. The case of Henry A. Boot against John A. Davis was to have come up in the su preme court yesterday. This is the cele brated Davis will case. Boot was fighting the appointment of Davis as administrator of the estate of his brother, Andrew J. Davis, the Butte millionaire. After that case came up to the supreme court a will was found making John A. Davis practio ally the sole heir. This will was disputed. Boot claimed that it was a forgery and the district court at Butte allowed him to amend his eriginal complaint so as to make the authenticity of the will part of the is sue. Boot and his counsel, Lawyer Myers, of New Yorkr, and J. B. ClayberR, of Hel ena, and John F. Forbes, the attorney for John A. Davis, were present in court yes terday. The lawyers were not quite rea to go on with the case, and the eourt al lowed it to go over until to-day. A CLEAN BILL O0 HEALTH. The Supreme Court'. New Rule on Ad misnlons to the Bar. The supreme court yesterday made a new role regarding admisions to the bar which will make it impossible for lawyersto prao tioe ia the courts of Montana after having been disbarred elsewhere. The rule pro vides that "when applioation is made for the admilion of an attorney upon a certilf cate that such person has been admitted in the highest.counr of a sister state or terri tory, the applicant shall present his peti tion in writing, verified by oath, which shall state where he has read law and was first admittod, and in what state he tlced whether any procedmin have been had for his disbarment in any court at any time; when, where and how long any urdition he has been enaed the prSwtie of the law; with a cerlicato of the Preia. eludge of the hbihoet oourt to w i oh b o that he was of good standi.. n h n profeaion." There is aid to .e a b ase oming up shortly whioh will tnvolve thi very queton. Admitted to Praetiee Stephen Carpenter, of Helena, son of ex Governor Carpenter, of Montana, and J. D.
