4 iany Men Employed a Ever

the Camp
The Cumberland, Merrimso m.an
Jumbo Bhowing What the
Distriot Is Worth.
iMing in Madlena Ceanty--Plrgr s int
the British Kerotenal--r Blek
Jefraueon County.
Some people thinkthere is no wort oling
on in Oastle this year on aooount of our
failure to get a railroad, says the Reporter,
and the oonsequent deorease in business
from what it would have been with one.
They overlook the faot that there are nearly
as manuy men employed in our mines and
smelter as there ever has been at any one
time m our history.
The Cumberland has men in the mine
and smelter, and has bull teams, horse
teams and mule teams constantly hauling
coke, charcoal, wood and timber in, and
bullion out, and altogether gives employ
ment to about 400 men and between 500 and
600 horses, mules or oxen.
The Merrimao mine has quite a force
at work, and will continue to work right
The Jumbo property is being worked, and
probably will continue all winter.
The Yellowstone has been worked con
stantly since February, 1890, and they have
now twenty-five men employed on and
around the mine. This force will probably
be increased after this month.
Mr. Bush has a contract on the Hidden
Treasure that will last until next spring.
The Iron Chief has about fifteen men en
gaged on its property, and we all know
that the indefatigable Henry Kertz will not
let that property lay idle until the bottom is
The Cleopatra is working a force of men,
and expect to continue on indefinitely.
The Bondholder has started up, and will
work right along. They will go to ship.
ping ore, railroad on no railroad.
The Judge has been working for some
The Anna 0. has been at work all sum
mer, and has quite a force.
The Sherman and Rattler are at work and
both bid fair to be good properties.
This makes twelve mines that are actual
ly at work, and we know of no reason why
they will not continue working right along.
Besides a large number of properties who
have men employed to do their represent
ing. Hence you see that there is a good
deal of work going on in our mines though
it does seem dull These mines would all
be ore shippers with a railroad here and to
them would be added the California, Great
Eastern, Legal Tender, Silver Bill, Anna 8,
Armada, Silver Belt, Columbia and many
others. With such a showing as this, we
ought to get a road without putting up a
bonus, but it is customary all
through this country to give
the first railroad that enters a town
a donation, and that will have to be done
here and the sooner the people of this town
realize this, and put down what they can
reasonably afford to give, the sooner we will
get it. Some seem to be discouraged, be
cause in our first attempt to get a road we
failed, but it is our duty to ourselves, our
camp, and our country to keep on trying
until it comes. Remember the saying, "If
at first you don't succeed," etc. No one
any longer doubts but what a road to this
camp would be a paying investment, and
we should raise a bonus end offer it to the
first syndicate or company that would build
in here. If we failed with one, offer it to
another and keep on until we got some one
to do it. If this is done there is no doubt
but what we could get a road within a year.
Washlagton Bar bines.
Mayor Norris of the railroad metropolis
bearing his name, and his partner, Henry
Henselbeeked, has struck it rich on their
Ace of Clubs lode, says the Madisonian.
May A Badjett are working the Polaris
for all there is in it. They will soon ship a
a carload of ore to the Omaha smelter.
Hagerty A Co. are sinking a new shaft
upon the veto lode. This property will
surely prove valuable, as the ore is richer as
depth is attained.
Sparrell A Tupher have a shipment of ore
about ready. They will ship to Butte.
The Little Kid mine is showing up a fine
body of ore, thatis said to assay very high.
Wear & Gorham will make a clean-up be
fore the sun rises and sets many more
times. They expect to add t> the world's
wealth but a trifle less than the amount of
the surplus in the United States treasury.
The Eureka mine, under the able super
vision of Jo. Bonham, is showing up in
good shape. When Jo. gets after a quartz
vein it will have to dodge around pretty
lively if he doesn't run it down.
Mather A Lamb Bros. are working their
mines, which are located high up among
the clouds on the bleak sides of "Old
Baldy." They have lots of good ore in
sight. They intend to ship severalcarloads
to the Helena smelter this fall.
In the Britlih Kootenal.
In Hot Springs district development work
is being done on several claims and mines.
although ore extraction for immediate
shipment is confined to the Number One
alone, says the Nelson Miner. The vein in
that mine continues to carry good ore, and
although rather blankety in its dip con
tinues well defined. It is reported that
Bremner & Watson, the Ainsworth team
steres, have contracted to haul an additional
tonnage from the mine to the landing for
shipment to East Helena, Montana. The
Fourth also continues to show ore in the
tunnel, and is pronounced as looking as
well, if not better than any other claim in
the district for the amcount of work done.
The hkyline crosscut has not vet reached
the lodge, the ground being the hardest en
countered in the mine. The Tenderfoot's
double-compartment shaft is down twenty
feet. A double shift is at work on the
Snowbank, a claim located in line with the I
Foulth and Number One, and Irom which
great things are expected by its owners.
W. W. S:rague is sinking on the On Deck.
The usual amount of assessment work is
being done.
Superintendent Ray reports the Dandy
looking good. On :.onday last the lower
tunnel was in ninety-four feet and the up
per crosscut tunnel in eighty-four.
The main tunnel in the Silver King is in
over 600 feet and the crosscut at the bottom
of the shaft forty-five feet. The latter ran
through the ore body and is now in sort
shale. The second crosscut to the right in
the main tnnnel is in twenty-five feet and
the crosscut to the left in about ten feet
the latter in ore. The working force is be
tween twenty and twenty-five men.

George Platt has bonded his interest in
the Montana Consolidated mine, a patented
claim in Bighore unich, to Mr. M. L. Hew
ett, superintendent of the Obelisk mine.
Mr, Hewett will endeavor to bond the in
terests of N. J. McConnell, and will then
develop the property by a 300-foot tunnel
to strike the lead. He thinks the vein will
prove to be one of the biggest in the coun

The Red Bluff Mine.
A. K. Norris. of Helena, who has an op
tion on the Red Bluff mine, at Red Bluff.
was in the city this week, says the Madi
sonian. He informs us that the result of
his investigations of the property have
proven very satisfactory, and that he has
decided to put tup reduction works on the
mine to handle the ores from it, but did
not state positively how soon he would be
gin the work of construction.
Fine Coal Deposits.
Some splendid specimens of semi-bitumi
nous coal from the new mines near Colum
bia Falls are on exhibition at the First
National bank. Experts who have ex
amined the specimens say the coalis of high
quality. The rein'is said to be a large one
and is easily worked.

Arriving at San Francliso Marshal F.ray
will turn the Chinamen over to the Cali
fornia marshal and take a receipt. The
California marshal will transfer them to
the collector of the port of San Francisco,
who will ship them back to China.
The taking along of a large foroe of deps
aties by the marshal might look to jome
like an unnecessary thing, But reoent per
formances on the part of returned China
men show that too much caution uannot be
observed. Three of them were being sent
back from a southern city, and when San
Francisco was reached the marshal in
charge found that he only had two. Where
t he other had gone no one knew, but the
supposition is that he flew out of the car
The law which exoludes Chinamen froc
the Unite ý States, and expels those wh,
cannot showa certificate of former reRsi
dence or prove it by competent witnesses is
one that the artful Celestial is liable to use
to his own advantage. When he gets
enough of "the land of the free," and de
sires a cheap trip back to China, he can
simply go to a strange city, have it whis
pered around that he has smuggled
himself in, get arrested and admit that he
had no right here, and the government will
furnish him a guard of honor to S(n Fran
cisco, and a free passage from there home.
There is no evidence so far that this has
been done, but there is no one who can s.r
positively that it has not. The Chinaman
can in a short time acquire in this country
what will be a life competency in his own
land, and if he is smart enough to make
this government send him back home with
out any expense there is no way to remedy
the natter after the thing is done.
