MISSOULA COINTY MINES
The Iron Mountain Conoentrator Er pested to Be Crushing Rock in Twenty Days. The Strike in the Keystone Having a Good Efflot on Spring Gulch Properties. Work of the Placer Mines-Wyoming Looks for a Goed Attendance at the Mineral Convention. hltssouta, Sept. 4.-[Speoial.a--News from surrounding mining camps indicates a general improvement and material re sulte in the way of ore shipments. At the Iron Mountain the concentrator is ap proaching completion and in twenty days will be crushing ore. On Deep creak considerable work is be ing done. The ore body encountered In the cross-cut of the Little Anaconda tunnel has improved to such an extent that the company have decided to immediately commence the construction of a wagon road. The grade of the ore is good and eonslderable is already on the dump. This strike is at a depth of 165 feet, and has been driven on each way. showing that the cross-cut penetrated the vein in its narrow est place. On the U. B. Treasury a depth of fifty-five feet has been reached. At this depth the grade of the ore is much better than that on the surface. A contract has been let for 100 feet on the ledge, :from the bottom of the shaft. In Spring gulch the strike on the Key stone and the subsequent regular ship sents of ore have had a simulating effect throughout the camp. Sixteen men are now working on this mine, which shows four feet of clear ore. Seven car loads of ore have been shipped by the lessees since the strike. An old tunnel which was driven on the ledge some two years since is being con tinned by the lessees, and will tap the pres- I ent ore chute at a depth of 100 feet, which. when connected with the shaft, will give r them a large amount of stoping ground. f The old cross-cut tunnel on the King and I Queen, which was run when that property c was under bond to Ojelness, is now being i cleaned ont and retimbered preparatory to e driving it on to the ledge, which it t now lacks about seventy feet of cutting. The tunnel is now 750 feet long, and will intersect the King and Queen vein at a depth of 350 feet. When work was suspended some two years since the face of the tunnel was commencing to tl show galena and iron streaks on the shale f formation. The property at that time was bonded to Portland parties for $100,000. An a extension of the bond was asked for and L refased by the owners. The shutting down of this property at that time had a paralyz- P ing effect on the enerpies of the camp, from ft whieh it recovered slowly. The present prosperity of the camp is based on actual shipments of pay ore. ir During the past two weeks several die- w coveries have been made in Slower's gulch, ci the first ravine west from Spring gulch, and which until this summer had been sup- y' posed to mark the western limits of the t, Spring gulch end Iron Mountain mineral ft belt. 'he ore discovered is a high grade is galena, and in character much resembles st that found in the Little Ansconda on Deep A. P. Johnston, the merchant at Superior, was in Missoula this week. He states that considerable gold dust is coming in from the various placer camps in the vicinity and that the gum boot miners are as a rule doing well. Work on the big drain tunnel in the bed of 'Trout creek has been resumed. This tunnel is now in over 3,000 fert. Nu merous rich gulches put into 'Itout cree.' from each side, the gold found in them be ing coarse and mostly on the bedrock. In the main creek, owing to water, they have never been able to sink a shaft to bedrock, which it is thought must be rich in the yellow metal. the most skeptical cannot help but admire the pluck of the owners of this property, as they have stuck to it for fourteen years, and each year have done as much work on it as their means permitted. The perpendicular depth now attained is forty-five feet. This summer's work has shown a considerable improvement in the gravel. Iron rock and black sand are show ing plentifully, and occasionally points of the rim rock are run over which show fair prospects. It is thought that this season's work will reach the main channel. Recent developments on Nine Mile have caused something of a stampede to that section. tlissonla parties have bonded for $25,000 the Baker property, close to Drum mond. Last fall rich float was discovered on this property, but it was only about three weeks since the ledge was discovered. The surface of the ground on the claim was covered with detached pieces of ore, and in the work of pnospeoting for the ledge seventy-two tons were sacked and shipped to the smelter, netting over $100 per ton. The ledge is in a limestone for mation and has been sunk on twenty-five feet showing good ore the entire distance. WYOMING BOARD OF MINES. Mlnlng Convention to Be Held iit Chey enne, Commencing Mionday. During the summer of i1890 the press of Wyoming pretty generally advocated the holding of a mining convention. Late in the fall the matter took shape, and a call was made for a convention to be held at Cheyenne, the capital of the state. on Dec. 80 and 31 and Jan. 1 and 2. The call was signed by persons in every county in the state. At the same time a request was made that specimens of mineral be bhought to the convention from as many camps as possible. Winter was fairly on, but the miners and others interested in the devel opment of the mineral resources of the state took the matter in hand and there ap peared at the convention a collection of mineral that would do credit to the best developed states. Fremont county alone made a showing worthy of an empire; Car bon county, in which Gold Hill is located, made a line showing and won a reputation for rich mineral. Other localities followed close after, and taken altogether the display was in every way creditable to the persons who had taken the trouble to make the col lection. There was iron from the celebrated Hart ville deposit, also from Rawlins, and num erous specimens of oil taken from half a dozen oil districts; gold, silver and copper ore from all over the state, and a large number of fine specimens of coal taken from numerous mines. There was marble and building stone in great variety. The convention was made up of delegates rep resenting the various counties and camps, and each locality was given an opportunity to speak for itself. There were papers road and speeches made on all subjects connect ed with mining and mineral. The conrven tion wr.a numerously attended and was pro nounced to be a grand success. At this convention the state board of mines -ase bor n. A committee appointed for the pur pose made the iloan of a state organization, and the convenito'u ilectt, thirtein dele gates, one for each ei.nnty, who in turn eleated a 'reeldeet. ('Col. hiepiheu W. Dow may, of LaraUie City, a gentleman largely interested in milong op eraltionsil the state. Joe I)el3artbn, of ti a Buffalo Buolletin, was elected treass er. and C. G. Coutant. editor of the Comranonwealth at Cheyenne, was made tet setry. Refore the convention adjourned it was deterrilied to hold another this fall and to nxal,, it the one great eveat in tie liwtory of the state during the year 18t1. Wirh this eid in view the board of treutesu went to work to secure specimens for the dis p!ay arnll papers from individuals who could g:ve reliable information in regard to the various mineral deposits. The one aim has been to secure reliable data in regard to all kinds of mineral, its quality and quantity Sand wherever found. The convention will be held in the hall of the house of are. sentativea and the mineral display will be made In the same buildinO, in rooms et apart for the use of the etat boardof mines by the legielatr. last wiater. The collea Sion of mineral will he retained in the rooms of the state board of mines for a per manent display that will be acessible at all times to visitors to the capital oity of Wyoming. he railway companies have united in making a one-fare round trip rate from all pointsin Colorado, Wyoming. Idaho, Mon. tana. Utah and South Dakota; rates will also be made for parties at Omaha. From all these states large delegations are ex lotasd. Wyoming is rapidly developing and this mining convention will prove to all who at. tend the value of its mineral. Toe gather ing will be alike benefloial to the people of I Wyoming and those of .utrounding states. JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWN. These cool nights make overcoats com fortable even under a straw hat.

An Attempt to Loot an Expre of Car Near Los Angeles Not in Suocessftul. all gill )m An Ofmoer While Defending the x- Train Is Seriously Wounded ais by the Highwaymen. at of es. The Texam Robbers Reported to Rave Secured Fifteen Theusaoa Dollars ae the Result of Their Raid. a S. SAN FPasaseco, Sept. 4.-The Los Angeles express was held up by two masked men a at few miles south of Modesto at 8:45 last r- night. The robbers boarded the train at Ceres and compelled the engineer and flre fi man to'extingnish the headlight and fill the boiler with water. They then made the rs trainmen get down and go to the express y car and order it opened. The conductor and a brakeman were in front of the car, of and when they came out were warned by a r number of shots from the robbers. Two detectives, who happened to be in the train, ot opened fire on the robbers, who returned it, y hitting Harris, the detective, in the head e and fatally wounding him. In the mean time the robbers exploded a bomb before I the door of the express car and shattered ° it, but they became frightened and left without securing any booty. k Harris was taken to Merced, where he is dying. As soon as the news of the attempted robbery reached Merced a special train started for the scene bearing officers and a posse of 60 men, who are now in pursuit. Officers also started from Tur look, Modesto and Merced. ManoaD, Cal., Sept. 4.-Two men sus 5 pected of being implicated in the attempted train robbery last night were arrested at Ceres early this morning and taken to Mo I desto. The physicians who attended Detective Harris say his wound is not fatal. Secured Fifteen Thousand. SAN ANTroNIo, Tex., Sept. 4.-The amount taken by the men who robbed the Southern Pacific express train at Samuels is said to be about $15,000 instead of the small amount at first reported. IT WAS SUICIDE. No Question as to Hlow James Van Ness Met His Fate. MrIsoULA, Sept. 4.-A recent article in a Montana paper purports to give the inside history of the cause of the taking off of James Van Ness, which took place about fifty miles from Missoula about fourteen months ago. The story is so ridiculous as scarcely to warrant attention, did it not lead the reader to infer that Van Ness did not commit suicide, but was murdered, and t that there was a family war waging,oircum stances pointing suspiciously toward mem bers of the family. There are four men in Missoula who could have told the writer of i the sensation all there was in the Van Ness matter, so he need not have depended upon the tale of a prospector, who was not pres ent at the time Van Ness died. Your cor respondent has seen these gentlemen, and these are their stories: Mr. C. B. Mahoney, a gentleman of un questioned responsibility, stated to the writer that he was sleeping in the adjoining - room to Mr. Van Ness. That he was awak ened by a shot, that he and Alfred Shipley immediately went into the room, found Mr. Van Ness lying in bed breathing heavily, t a bullet hole through his head and a smok ing pistol in his hand. Mr. Snow's father, a brother-in-law of Van Ness, was sleeping 1 with him but had not yet realized what had t occurred. Mr. C. W. Staple stated that he a was sleeping in an adjoining room, was 5 awakened by the shot, went in and saw Van Ness with the pistol in his hand, dying. Mr. Pearson stated that he was sleeping in the same building, went to the door of Van Ness' room, saw him lying there, did I not go in but smelt the powder smoke in sa the room and saw the wound. Mr. VanNess k had not more than a week previous stated a to parties that he suffered so much from rheumatism that life was not worth having and that he had on several occasions taken d such large doses of morphine that he had hot expected to wake up again. o Dr. J. M. Hargrave stated that he stooped at the milk ranch frequently, and then would write up Van Ness' books for e him. That he was well acquainted with a, all the business matters and that the rela tions of Mr. Snow and Van Ness were - pleasant and no family war raged. The weather was warm at the time, and t the stage journey to Missoula and back s occupied two full days. F. O. Kenedy. C, county surveyor and a notary, was there, and swore in a jury. Took depositions of witnesses. The jury so obtained did not, a perhaps, fulfill all technical requirements o of the law, but was considered the best that could be had under the circumstances. The jury's verdict of suicide, together with the depositions of all the witnesses, were sent to Coroner Myers, who examined them, placed them before the county attor ney, and requested his advice. The county attorney thought everything necessary had been done. The World Enriched.
