OTH FORAK COUNTRY,
ai Portion of the Coeur d'Alenes to Whioh the First Rush Was -Made. operations of Some of the 'Big Companies Interested on Pritchard Oreer, eeotion Which Has Produced Feor Mil lions in Gold Since Its First Discov ery Eight Yeanrs Ago. WARDNES, Idaho, lept. 6.-t[8peoial.1- HE INDEPENDENT correspondent has just turned from a visit to Murray, the old amp that has boasted that it was on the old belt, or as is known hers, on the north side." Here the first horde of =iners, adventurers, etc., rushed in late in 88 and in 1884, expecting to find an Alder r Deadwood galoh, All who remember the istory of that country will recall the black ye it received as a result of that stampede. vast throngof men came in on the various rails, on snow ten to twenty feet deep, and he crowd was obliged to go out again. 'hey could not produce sufficient' to pro ide their own substance. Some remained rom choice, others were compelled to do so ecause they were too hard up to provide arelling expenses. Every one of theprom nent producing mines of this whole section ere located by those who came with this irst stampede. As a placer camp, however, t has disappointed its founders. It was .emonstrated at an early time that the great depth of bad rook, large body of water, and great width of the gulch, it being one-half ite and more in places, rendered it dif ioult to work. Another diffioulty is the light grade of the gulcla, rendering "dump age" diffiuolt.- Daring the eight interven ing years the main channel- hnd not been worked, and its treasure on bedrock is as much a conjecture' as the day A. J. Priteh ard first set foot on the ground. Oper ations have been pushed on the veins and the hill diggings. Among the discoveries of the first in oaders was a body of gravel lying above the level of Pritchard creek, locally known as the "Old Wash." Many persons ac count for it as she channel of an ancient water course, while some versed in geology assert it to be the track of a morain glacier. In support of this theory the following features are cited: It has been traced from a point near the summit of the Bitter Root mountains on the east to a point northwest of the north fork of the Coeur d'Alene river, on a direct line to Lake Pon d'Oreille, a distance of about twenty miles. If it has served as the bed of a water course, the whole system of the country's drainage has been changed. The gravel, rocks, etc., are smooth, but in a condition suggestive of attrition, not of washing. Similar indications are observed in ihe finer portions, and in the sediment, the conditions differing from those found where moisture is present. The straight course, free from irregularities, of water courses, the great depth of gravel known to exist, with the extreme width and the ap pearance of a latteral force pushing, con firm the glacial theory. The gigantic operations of the Coeur d'Alene Gold Mining company and the Spokane Hydraulic company are on this gravel bed, the former on Fanoy gulch, a tributary of Eagle creek, and about five miles northwest from Murray, Sydenham Mills, the able manager, being in charge. Mr. Milli has a good water supply, taken from East Eagle creek. He is using one big and a small giant,with a pressure of 800 feet, capable of tearing down and washing three cubic yards per minute. He is em ploying thirty men, and while he does not give the result of his operations to the pub lic, his payments are always prompt, and it is supposed the result is satisfactory to his company. The company was organized under the laws of Kentucky. They have ground suf ficient for twenty years or more and their gravel prospects up to $1.25 per cubic yard. The Spokane Hydraulic company is op erating on this wash, on Dream gulch, about one mile up from Pritchard creek, and at an elevation of about 200 feet above Dream gulch. App oarhing the works toward the face one sees a bank of gravel and rocks towering eighty to one hundred feet above bedrock. Two giants are play ing on this high bieast, great masses of it are tumbled down to be washed down into the flumes.One of these giants has a nozzle three and a half inches in diameter, the other four ipches. This pit has been worked sixty feet wide, and the end is not yet. Deep cuts have been blasted in the bedrock to give the flumes good grade to carry off the gravel and rocks. These are limited in size to the size of the flumes, th dumpage being unlimited they run every thing through. Rooks that exceed the ca pacity of the flume are reduced by sledges. At the beet stage of water the pressure is 600 feet at the point of the present works, the water being delivered by a 22.inch steel pipe, taken from Pritchard and tributary creeks, ten miles up that creek. The bed rook at this pit is a variety of quartzite, elate and decomposed granite. Joesse Coul ton is manager of this company. I witnessed a break in the flumeat a point of lowest depression below Murray. A joint was separated, no doubt by the expan of the steel due to the high temperature, Water was forced eighty feet high and 100 feet on each side. The great pressure at that point, 700 feet, forced the watei with terrific momentum, tearing everything in its path. Other works of less magnitude are being pushed on the wash. Little is being done, however, in the gulch. The well-known Widow claim is being worked, on the vein and Frank Grove is digging for his annual crop of nuggets on his ground below town. Cashier Johnson, of the bank of North Idaho, estimates the product of placer gold at $250,000 for the season, or about that of last season. The total yield of the camp in the eight seasons' work is probably $4,000, 000. Much of this has gone to the mint at Helena. The Wood brothers have a lease on the Golden King mine and mill. John Conmeriltk has a lease on theGolden Chesa mine. He is running the mill, work ing twenty-four men, and the results are satisfactory. The Stevens brothers are making prepar tions to start the Idaho mine and mill. These three properties were placed and companies organized at Louisville, Ky. Daring the early months of their life they were operated by the several companies. Mines those failures they have been leased to various individuals, the Idaho excepted. Ophir Hill, one mile above Murray, on the south side of Pritchard creek, is the home of the Mother Lode, Ooi dent, Treas ure lox and other locations. The former was not working a full force at the time of my visit. Their fine five-stamp mill had been hung up a few days before, owing to low water, that element being their power. They are working the narrow ledge that they have been robbing of its treasure the past eight years. The Ocoident, a parallel and adjoining location, is running an arastra by water power. They roast the ore in open pits and mine two tons daily, twelve hours. There are two narrow ledges cropping on this hillJ The lower one, re ferred to on the Mother Lode, raises from the level of the creek on that ground at an angle of 20 degrees. At the point opposite the eraatra it has an elevation of iughty feet above the creek. The upper ledge is 200 feet above this. The Occident boys are also working the lower lodge. This ledge is three to six feet thick and averages $80 per ton. The best quality is ribbon quartz, Three omen do all the work. Palnning into tunnel Number one, I met a surprise. The drift had been driven in 400 feet. Stopes hnve been worked out on bIoth sides, the flat slate forming a roof and floor. Here a change in formation, a ttes ite ,two brik we. rrs, drift a id derobing for the or the formatlon aange from horizontal to perpendicular and a thirt -foot ledge was cut, [ meueared three et of galena on the foo wall nearly nolid. Their assas of it are 1'onnoes of silver;468 per ont load, I per cent copper and $8 gold per ten, Hrving no facilities for concentration or treasportation of oes, they have wisely worked their gold ore. ., 1 T'heTreseure Box, adjoining the latter,, is also running an uassul by water power, worklg the l now r ldge. Fabulous wmounts have beetior ken ont bf pockets in this ledge on each of the locations named. The Treasure Box yielded $25,000 in one, the Occident $10,000 from one 6010 feet. and the Mother lode boys have exhausted several rich ones, one of $15,000 and ope of $0 000. James Cronin an old time manager of this country returned from Nelson, B. 0., recently, ad has assumed charge of the Granite mine on Nine Mile. Wmn. Y. Williams has resigned the super intendenoy of the McAuley-Dolnshmett syndicate, owning the Sierra Nevada, Inoz and Stemwinder on the Wardner belt, the Gradite on Nine Mile, and other less im portant claims. Judge Hloleman, of the district court, has handed dowk his decision in the water case, Last Chance company vs. the Bunker Hill Bullion company, making the injunction permanent. Their gentle action and good effect on the sys tem really make them a perfect little pill. 'they please those who use them ('Carter's Little Liver Dills may well be termed perfection.

Mlee, a Brotber From Seattle Whom She Has Not Seen for Three Years. Richard Nevins, Jr., of Seattle, Wash., arrived in Helena from St. Paul yesterday and registered at The Helena, Mrs. Blaine is living at Sioux Falls, S. D., where she has a suit pending for a divorce from the son of Secretary Blaine. The case has been given much publicity, something which she does not all relish. Last week she went to St. Paul with her cousin, Miss Nevius, of Phil adelphia, to meet her brother from Seattle, whom she has not seen for three years. While' in St. Paul the reporters flocked about the Hotel Ryan, but none of the party would disouss the celebrated divorce case, which will soon be tried at Sioux Falls. It is understood that young Blaine, who is now at Bar Harbor with his father, will filht the case. Since Mrs. Blaine left New York after a long period of illness and took up her residence at Sioux Falls she has re gained her former personal beauty for which she was noted. She has a tall, slen der liuure, a fair complexion and has a pleasant voloce with an English accent.

DISTIWGUISHED VISITORS, Members of the International Con. grass of Geoolgists Looking at Montana Rooks. * They Oome From St. Paul on ay Speolal Train of Seven 1 Oarse. The Party Will Spend Some Time In the National Park and Also Visit Utahl. A distlnguished body of geologists are now on their way to the National Park and Utah. The party is composed of delegates from foreign countries and the United States who have been attending the inter national session of geologists lately held at Washington, D. C. These experts among the rooks will first visit the famous National i Park which attracts visitors from the four quarters of the globe. To them this in teresting piece of nature will be of absorb ing interest. After they have explored the wonders of the park and filled thLir note books, the scientific world may expect a rare treat when these men put on paper the story told by the formations to be found in Wonderland. 'Thoy will remain in the Park for some time. The gentlemen are travel ing on a special train consisting of seven oars, four Pnllman sleepers, one dining oar, one composite oar and a baggage car. The ex cursion is under the management of Luther E. Holden, of Raymond & Whitcomb. There are about sixty in the party, being two-thirds of the members who attended the fifth annual congress of the geologists at Washington over which Prof. Le Conte, of California, presided. A majority of the geologists are. Germans. It is quite proba ble that the visitors will stop off at Helena. They should not be allowed to go through Montana without coming to Helena, the convention city. The party were expected to reach Liv. ingston yesterday.
