Closes a Contract for a Line
to Handle Its Ore.
To Be Completed by 1894, and to
Handle All the Company'e
Mines In Jefferson County-An Iron Work
er's Discovery-onecentrator for
tihe Pony Distriot.
The American Mining company (limited)
of Montana has just closed 'a contract with
Thomas W. Bates, of Payette, Idaho, to
build a standard gauge road from a point
on the Oregon Short Line to the Blue
Jacket mine, in the Seven Devils district,
in Washington county, Idaho. Under the
terms of the contract cohstruction work is
to commence on or before May 1, 1892.
Fifty miles are to be completed on or be
fore January, 1898, and the remainder is to
be built by January, 1894. The mining
company agrees in consideration of the
construction of the road to ship all ores,
matte or copper, from any mines in which
it holds an interest. These properties are
the Blue Jacket, Blue Jacket No. 2, Legal
"Tender, Copper Crescent, Norma Calumet
Copper Queen, White Monument, Peaook
and Helena. The company also agrees to t
begin the work of taking out ore for ship- I
ment as soon as the first fifty miles of the
road are completed. The contract between
Bates and the company is made for a period
of five years. Bates on his part agrees to 1
furnish all transportation facilities for r
hauling ore at the rate of $5 per ton from a
the Bine Jacket mine to the junction on the I
Oregon Short Line. The American Mining
company is a Montana organization con
trolled by Helena men. Albert Kleinsohmidt
is the president of the company. d
In the Big Foot Dlstrlct-Reports From
Other Sections.

Big Foot is on the ground, and the men are
hard at work putting it in place, and the

Messrs. Anderson and Magee have com
pleted their work of representing for this
year, and are now at work on the White
Dog, with the expectation of soon being
able to make another shipment. One assay,
made from a sample taken from the tunnel,
went over $100. and they expect to find a
large body of this high grade soon. They
struck some very fine ore while represent
ing on the Mountain Queen.
Among the mines of Jefferson county for
which applications for patents have recently
been made are the Roble Burns and Bed
rook, Cataract district, owned by A. H.
Nelson and Wm. M. G. Settles, of Helena,
and John Sheahan and George W. Powrie,
of Corbin: the Skipper lode, Cataract dis
trict, owned by E. E. Williams and David
Bevan; the Monarch lode, Elkhorn district,
owned by George Benjamin and A. H. Fos
ter, of Boulder, and Charles S. Warren,
P. A. Largey, Henry L. Frank, and Lee
Mantle, of Butte: aqd the Cataract placer,

Cole, trustee.
The Goodyear Mining company, operat
ing in the Park district, has levied an as
sessment of one cent a share, payable to-day
and delinquent stock to be sold Noyem
ber 14.
The ore from the Ella mine, Amazon
district, ran about $35 to the ton at the
Boulder Sampling works, which was quite
satisfactory. A little more careful sorting
of the ore would probably bring it up to
$45 or $50 rock.
The Hiawatha Mining company. operat
ina in Cataract district, a few miles from
Basin, and with office in Butte, has levied
an assessment of two cents a share, payable
November 15, the delinquent stock to be
sold December 10.
It is understood that some Colorado men
have leased the Amazon smelter and will
resuame operations very soon.
A new shaft has been started on the Mono
mine. Amazon district, and the owners
hope to push work steadily hereafter. Some
500 tons of ore are on the old dump.
The returns from the State ore, Bigfoot
district; were hardly as good as anticipated,
some of it, however, running $30 in gold
to the ton. The owners of the mine intend
to continue development work.
Ore bins are in course of erection at the
Obelisk mine, two miles below Basin, and
other improvement are being made on the
E. F. Simmons reports the B. & G. mine,

The shaft is down foray-two feet and drift
ing along the vein is being done to develop
the property. The vein has about a foot of
steel galena which goes about $100 to the
Smith & Howard continue to take out
good ore from the Wilbur mine, in Amazon
district. This is one of the most promis
ing properties for development in the dis
trict, the vein being distinctly defined as
far as developed, say for a distance of 150
feet, with four feet of low grade ore which
is interspersed with bunches of rich ore.
eaerge A. Clarke's Find in the Rocky
Mountain Region.
George A. Clarke, an experienced iron
worker of Boston, claims to have dis
covered an ore in the -Rocky mountains
which he believes is new to the world. He
says: "I took specimens of the ore to ae
sayers in Cincinnati, Chicago and Boston
and not one of them could tell me the
name of the mineral. Then I began here
a series of experiments myself, mixing
it with molten iron, and I found that
only a small quantity was necessary to
increase the fluidity of the metal. It
rendered iron ductile and in low grades
acted as a purifier. The product of alloy
was a homogeneous metal of very fine
pores, capable of higher finish than before.
The slag expelled by its use contained no
metal and was very light. In the new treat
ment of iron with only one per cent. of the
new ore, the former's tensile strength was
increased from 10 to 25 per cent. Using
half of one per cent. of this ore mn a mix
ture with copper, I found that it gave the
metal greater increase-from 60 to 100 ler
cent.-of tensile strength. The resulting,
too, is capable of a high polish. In a word,
I found that the ore increased the tensile
strength and fluidity under heat of both
these metals and makes them both of finer
grain. It is noncorrosive." The ore looks
ike a fine sandstone, save that it is black,
and many pieces of it presented highly pol
ished surfaces as smooth as a bit of glass.
Mr. Clarke refuses to state the location of
the field, which, he states, was exposed over
the face of an acre, as he is trying to get
control of it first.
The St. Louis People to Put in a Fifty-Ton
Mr. F. C. Wood, one of the largest stock
holders of the Glenn Mining company,
whose home is in ht. Louis, arrived in Pony
Tuesday, and has been looking over the
group of claims owned by the company on
Mineral hill, says the Pony Express. Mr.
Wood expressed himself as being highly
pleased with the proereus and development
of the properties. Ile also said it was defi
oitely settled that the company would erect
a flfty-ton concentrator as soon as they
could determine on what process would be
the most practicable for the class of ore in
this district, and their intention is to have
the mill in active operation early in the
spring. A test sample of ore was taken to
e one of the a eisite to

The Yukon.
A. D. Sehmit returned Wednesday
night from Jefferson county, where he has
been prospecting tfr several weeks, says the
Walkervills Telegraph. He brought with
him samples of lead ore from the Yukon
mine, in which he has a half owner which
runs from 60 to 75 per cent. lead and about
$15 in gold and silver. The Yukon is a
new claim just purchased by Mr. Schmidt
and the same day he bought he was offered
several hundred dollars profit if he would
sell it, but he thought too much
of the prospect to do that. He will
put two men working on it running a tan
nel this winter and has great hopes that it
will prove a bonanza, Mr. Schmidt speaks
of thes camp in glowing terms and says that
within a few years the country in the vicin
ity of Basin and Bernice will be one of the
beat mining districts in Montana.
Leased the Easton.
Messrs. C. M. Dinwoody, of Butte, and
W. H. Thomas, of this city, have leased the
Easton mine, situated in Brown's auloh, of
Mr. Jos. Emery, says the Madisonian. We
understand that Mr. Thomas in turn, has
sub-leased his interest to another Butte
party, who will, with Mr. Dinwoody work
the lease. The Easton is a small vein, but
the ore in it is high grade, and we believe
the intention of the leases is to extract and
ship the ores to Butte, or elsewhere. for re
duction. Mr. Dinwoody has been engaged
in the business of leasing and working
mines for years, and is said to be an excel
lent miner and to have made considerable
money out of the properties he has oper
ated. He is confident the Easton is a good
mine and that his investment in it will
prove a a remunerative one.
The Boston and Montana has declared
dividend No. 14 of $1 a share, aggregating
$125,000, payable Nov. 20.
The Hecla company's dividend No. 114 of
50 cents, aggregating $15,000, paid Oct.
24, makes $150,000 paid this year.
It is understood that the Queen of the
Hills company, at Neihart, have decided on
the erection of a twenty-stamp mill.
Mr. Emile Hotz has had the Emma mine t
surveyed and will soon apply for a patent.
It is an extension of the noted Gold Dast.
There is three feet of ore.
The Moulton at Neihart is expected to
develop wonderful things as an ore pro
ducer in the near future. The force of
workmen has been largely increased of late,
and much is expected from this property.
The copper product of the Boston and
Montana company for the year ending June
30 was 26,693,842 pounds. Silver product,
285,856 ounces. So far the company has
declared dividends amounting to $2,750,000.
News from Red Bluff is to the effect that
the work of development on the Red Bluff 5
is progressing rapidly and satisfactorily,
while all the other mines in the camp that t
are being worked are showing up in good
Sinking continues on the Kennett mine,
and as depth is attained indications of
striking ore are at the level that it has been
encountered in the other shafts that have
been sunk on this great mine (which is the
same as the Bertha) are most favorable.
