MINING IN MISSOULAI
" The Iron Mountain Conoentrator Will Be Crushing Ore in Sixty Days. An Excellent Showing Being Made on the O. R & lN.--Ore Shipments. Windfall Creek Placers- Good Sale of Property Near MullaU-Bunker Mill and Sullivan Strike. MIsso.eA, Aug. 18.-[Special.l-Work is rapidly progressing on the Iron Mountain concentrator. A carload of machinery ar rived last Tuesday and the foundations are prepared so that it can immediately be placed in position. Mr. La Croesi, who has charge of its construction, says the mill will be crushing ore by Oqt, 10. On Deep creek the development during the week has been very favorable. The tunnel on the May Day has been driven about ten feet and continues to show a strong vein of galena. On the United States Treasury develop ment is continued with two shifts as here tofore. The Little Anaconda tunnel has now reached a point vertically ender the shaft, and a raise is being made which will con neot the two. A crosscut from the tunnel recently ent a fine vein of galena, fourteen inches in thickness and assaying high both In silver and lead. From Spring Gulch considerable ore is being shipped. The Keystone now em ploys twelve mineer and is shipping a great deal of high grade ore. The O. 1R. &. N. tunnel has cut a small flow of water which is thought to indicate the near approach of I the main vein. The streak of gray copper 1 ore which was struck some two months since has been drifted on each way and has shown up well, eight tons of a good grade of ore having been extracted. This will seon be shipped, and also several carloads of screenings and second class ore, which are on the dumps of the old shaft. The i main tunnel is now in about 650 feet. From Thompson river,100 miles~northwest of Missoula, Superintendent Ward of the Buckeye, reports a strike of three feet of high grade ore in the new lower tunnel. Considerable high grade , ore has been shipped from this mine, and this tunnel will penetrate the mountain 206 feet below the old workings. Phillip Runyon, who has charge of the hydraulic placers on Windfall creek, fifty miles west of Missoula, has been town for the past two days and reports very favor- 7 ably on the property. The company is using two flumes, one on each side of the gulch. During the spring there is sufficient water for both. In the fall, however, only one can be used at a time. The flumes are c thirty inches wide and have a grade of n eight and a half inches to the rod, each 3 using about 800 inches of water. The north flume is 325 feet in length and the south 863 feet. Both were put in during last fall and this spring. The lumber was sawed on the ground with whip saws. At present a six-inch pipe with eighty foot vertical pressure is used, but the company contemplate next spring putting in a four teen-inch iron pipe with a little giant mozzle and a derrick with which to handle the large boulders. The bank varies from thirteen to twenty-five feet in thickness, from five to six feet of which is the pay gravel laying on a clay bedrock and ever aging about five cents to the pan. Four i hundred and fifty feet farther up the gulch the flumes will touch the true decomposed t granite bedrock. The company own eighty c acres below the flume, twenty acres of which are used as dumping ground for the flumos 1 pow in use. Above the flumes they own f sixty acres, which can be worked by the flnmes'now in. The gold from this gulch t sells at the banks for $18.75 per ounce. •c Mties Around Mulllan. O. D. Grrrison and his partners Col. John R. Wheat and Thomas Greenough, have sold the Iron Crown mine, situated at the head of Grouse gulch, to Mr. A. C. McLean, representing the Grouse Mining company, says the Mullan Tribune. This is the larg eat mining transaction that has taken place around Mullhn for some time. The saie was outright, a good part of the purchase money, $50,000, being paid in cash. Asso oiated with Mr. McLeanare Messrs. Woods and Larson, the millionaire railroad con tractors. Henceforth all work done by the Grouse company will be done for the mutual advantage of both mines; the main working tunnel that was started last winter and in which machine drills are being used, has been diverted from its intended course at the 1200 foot mark and angled off to reach the dividing line between the two claims. O. D. Garrison has just closed negotia tions and the papers are now on record for the purchase of the Midnight on Chloride hill. The price paid for this property is $'0,000, part cash. The owners were D. H. Lineberger, John Conmerilh, C. C. A. Earl, and Mr. Stegner. The Midnight lies be tween the Morning and the You Like, west of and adjoining the Gettysburg, and abuts onto the Grouse on the east. Lying as it does, it cannot help being one of the great eat properties on Chloride hill. Work will begin at once and will be kept up continu ally until ore is struck in paying quantities. A great stike of galena has just been made in the Tarbox claim at Packer creek, in the St. Regis. This claim is owned half by Billy and Dick I)axon and half Iy E. K. Tarbox, the latter being under nn eighteen months' bond to Daxon Brothers. Another payment was made last week on the KnicKerbocker, bonded by Col. Wheat, John A1. Burke anrd . I. Gariarison. Only one nei)re remainn to be mnad, whln rlr. Kuight will selinquish Iris ownership) in the propsety. The Ionlers have pushed devel opmrent work with energy and they have now it very l:ronruliiilg Irine. A large body of ore has lately been struck in the Gettysburg. Blunker lill Ai Sullivan. The miners' strike still continues in Warduee', but nothing now or startling has been developed during the week, says the Warduor Nr-w. (Qu et prevails in the city, and the best of order is obseRved. On 'L hursday bills were distributed by the hunker Hill it' Sullivan company, oilering elllrlovnmeit to miners and laborers at tile old pr'ies--.tit.35 to miners and three dol lers to labtrers-and slmultaieously ap peared circulars from the Miners' union re questing the same class of men to keep away from Warduner until the strike on the Bunker Hill & Sullivan mines is declared oif. Written notices were also posted runnd town, of which the followine, is a copy: "The strike is still on. No men will be allowed to work underground in the Bunker I.ill & Sullivan mines until the strikle is decla ed off. BIy order of the ex ecutive committte." Helena Mien's Tiuolr. By far the best strike that has been made in the Yogo for years has been made by two Germans who only this spring arrived in camp from Helena, says the Belt Miner. 'I hey sunk a shaft on contract on Band-box Smuntain and at a depth of eighteen feet struck a large body of lead ore running high in silver. Your correspondent went up to the find and found it the best show ing he has seen in a long time. 'Ihe ore is of the best grey carbonate and galena plentifully mixed with green chloride and cerusite. There seems to be an inmmrense amount of soft vein matter going with the ore; on one side there is not less than twelve feet of wet tale which is spotted all through with maganese. '1 he lead is the Columbus and the owners and discoverers, M,. Laokcl and his partner "Fritz." are hard at work sinking. They are now down fort,-:rso feet in a porpondiunlar shaft, their work having been greaty retarded by the extreme softness of ie ground' worked. A Great Miingl Co.ntry. I. D. Gates, of the Gates Iron works,lhi. sago, was among the visitors in Helena yea today. Mr. Gates' company makes a sp- oialty of mining machinery, and his vifit to Montana was for the purpose of looking at mining properties. Speaking of what he had seen, he said that Montana was a mighty mining state, with a great future before her. "I am so impressed that I would like to locate here, espeaially if I had a big mine. What I may do in this regard depends upon circumstances." JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWN. The Broadwater plunge will open this evening. Inritations are out for a reception to be giveh to Mrs. Fannie H.

Captain Boutelle, of the Regular Army, Directed to Performn That Duty. General Orders From Adjutant General Douglass for AllU to Prepare. I It Is Expected That Much Good WVIlI Re suit From the Rteport and Its Recommendationa. b Under date of August G. Adjutant-Gener al Douglass received the following letter from Captain F. A. Boutelle. First cavalry, at Fort Custer: Sir-I have the honor to inform you that I have been ordered by the secretary of war to inspect the National Guard of the state of Montana, at the stations of the different organizations. For this purpose I respect fully report to the governor, the command er-in-chief. If agreeable to him I should like to commence this work about the 15th inst. Will you kindly inform me at as early a date as practicable of the wishes of the governor and any matters he would liko to have special attention. The communication was submitted to Governor Toole, who directed the adjutant general to have the inspection proceeded with. Adjutant-General Douglass thele upon issued the following orders: HEADQUARTERS NATIONAL GUARD OF MONTANA, ADJUTANT GENERAL's OmFFIE, HELENA, MONT., Aug. 12, 1891. GENRAL ORDERS NO. 8. 1-Captain F. A. Boutelle, First U. S. cavalry, having, pursuant to instructions from the secretary of war, reported to the commander in chief for the purpose of in specting the national guard of Montana. the various organizations and all officers of the guard will hold themselves in readiness for such inspection. 2-The commanding officers of compan ies A. D, E. H. I and K., First infantry, and troop B, cavalry, unattached, will parade their companies for inspection under.such orders as they may receive from Capt. Bou telle. 3-Colonel C. F. Lloyd, First infantry, will command companies B, F and G, stationed at Butte, and parade them for in spection under such instructions as he may receive from Capt. Boutelle. 4-Major E. A.

An inspection by an officer of the regular army is looked upon as a good thing. It will result in pointing out what defects, if any, exist in the militia system of the state, and may, asRd no doubt will, result in the betterment of the service. Captain Boutelle's report will be submitted as soon after the inspection as possible and will very likely contain many recommen dations and suggestions. A CHANCE TO FURNISH.
