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.
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
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

x- Train Is Seriously Wounded
ais by the Highwaymen.
es. The Texam Robbers Reported to Rave
Secured Fifteen Theusaoa Dollars ae
the Result of Their Raid.
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.
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.
