SONTIANA COMPANY, LITD
It Has Paid Over Half a Million Pounds Sterling in Divi dends. Synopsaa of the Company's Opera tions From January to June, This Year. Mr. Robinson Rolterates What He Has Said About Deep Mining--Report Front the Do Lenner. The report of the Montana company (limited) for the half year ending June 30, 1891, is a very interesting document. From January 1891, to the time of the report ten dividends were paid, each of £8,250. tip to date the amount paid in dividends is £~37. 057. The highest per cent was in 1887, when it reachdd thirty, and the lowest has been five per cent. During the six months ending June 30 the mills crushed 38,708 tons, producing a yield in bullion bars and concentrates on assays of $445,764.28, equivalent to $11.52 per ton, but the actual realized value of the bullion and concentrates amounted to only $402,989.74, giving an average per ton of $10.41 net yield. The average cost of pros peoting, mining and milling per ton of ore for the six months was $8.22 against $8.80 for the previous six months. Geo. M. Robinson in his report to the diroators, after giving a detailed report of the expenditures says: "The sum of $1,516 b was expended on tailing dams. This ex- a penditure was absolutely necessary to avoid b damaging the agricultural land below. a With the exception of the item of $187 ex- p pended on the machine shop, the balance of ,1 the expenditure, amounting to $25,889, was o for mine plant. The new compressor o engine was not only a necessity, the old w one being entirely inadequate to the con satntly increasing demands, but will repay d its cost in fuel saved. oc "Owing to the arrears of work forced u upon me by my illness last April, I have d found it impossible to make such a close t revision and estimate of the reserves to L 80th June, as I desired, but the total ton- s nage available for extraction to that date o: may be safely taken at not less than 150,- 0: 000 tons, with a probable addition of 20, 000 tons upon a elose estimate. it "This shaft (No. 1) is being sunk as ran- id idly as possible, and is now down nearly to bi the 1,600-foot level, where a cross-out will be driven to the lode. While it is not given tome to foretell what we have in ye front of us, I feel confident we shall ulti- to mately recover a valuable lode in depth, w and hope that the 1,600 will disclose a grade of ore suitable for the mill$ "It is unnecessary for me to reiterate at y this time the opinions so often expressed as to the probable result of deep mining in Drum Lummon hill, and in the face of the H fact that up to the present our efforts have H not resulted in valuable discoveries, my opinion is unchanged. Before we can rea sonably expect to encounter a favorable vs lode, we must pass to the bottonm of the pl 'horse' that has interfered with the deposi- o. tion of ore. At what depth this will be, tl actual development only will show. "The output for the past two or three ti months has been the lowest for several hi years. This need not, however, cause any e fear in your minds that the old mine is near m the point of collapse. To be sure, the ore t is low grade; but it can be made to pay all sharges, and something besides. I expect to be able to improve the runs from this e Lime; and while the increase over present be sutput may not be very startling, I hope to take a substantial addition." 8tt THE DE LAMAR MINE, An Alleged Controversy Between the Eng lish Owners and the De Lamar. the correspondent of the Spokane Spokes man, writing from Boise City, quotes J. M. Phillips, one of the proprietors of the Phil lips & Sullivan mine, in the same section as the De Lamar, as saying that at the pree enat time there is more controversy or trou ble between the English owners who re cently bought into the mine and Mr. De Lamar, who still owns the largest interest. From all accounts it seems that the minor ity stookowners want to run matters con nected with the mine to suit themselves, while Mr. De Lamar, who retained a con trolling interest for the express purpose of managing the affairs on those principles that have been demonstrated to be success ful in the past, insists on taking this re sponsibility entirely on himself. It is rumored that the London owners have em ployed an attorney to look after their in terest, while Mr. De Lamar has resigned his position as World's fair commissioner for Idaho to look after his mines in par son. All this, however, does not interfere with the working of the mine nor with the valuable improvements now being made there. The mine works about 100 men. The new 100-stamp mill will be in operation by the first of the year, and the yield of the mine is enormous. As toa ther mines in the vicinity, Mr. Sullivan says there have been some very rich and important developments in the Poorman mine during the past few days, but the owners seem reluctant to give the facts to the public. Mr. Phillips said that it was altogether probable that they had struck a rich parallel vein unexpectedly. The Poorman is doing well. In the Ruth the lower tunnel is beria' bored at the rate of four or five feet per day. 'The arm is to push this tunnel as fast as possible, is order to form a connection with the Poor man, which will develop this mine to a dept of :100 feet below any of their present workings and will prove of inestimable value to the Poorman colupany. 'The Flint property is showing actonishingly Well. Its owners are surprised at the resources now showing up. The mill is running night and day with a full force of men, rich ore and plenty of water. A large number of men are putting the machinery in place as it arrives. The 'trade Doller is holding out well. It runs its usual number of umen and alarge amount of rich ore is being taken out daily. In Bfeaverhead County. The Jay Hawk & Lone Pine combination have started the Ione Pine mill, and will start the Jay Hawk mill as soon as the nec essary work of "getting ready" is acoom plished. General Manager Cantain Henry Predieux informs us that the mine is look ing better than ever, and that the vein of ore has improved in size and vIluo since .operations commenced this r all. The mining has closed in Alder gulch and all interested in extracting tier riches :Ire feeling highly elated over the successful ness of the season's work. New Incorporations. At the offiee of the secretary of state yes terday articles of incorporation of the Gowrie Mining company were filed. The company is to do a general mining business and particularly to work the (owrie mine in Missoula county. The incorporators are W. H. Hammond, C. B1. Mahoney, Richard Marsh, J. M. Keith and E. M.

'cI FPauCxoo, Nov. 7.-O.I-0 , Fie0, of the Krarn PoLking coapsny, Kadlak fisland, Alaska, who arried~I bit yewtettdy on the steamer Karluk, reports the sense tional suicide of a noted Ruustn refuHge at that place. The exile was Edward Polly kofski. He had fled from Siberia to this country, by way of China, and in March last went to Kadisk, from this city, with Nicholas Federoff. a teacher in the school there. He had been exiled to the bleak coast of northern Russia, where for three or four years he toiled unceasingly in the mines. During his transport over the snows from St. 'eteraburg with other ex iles they were not given sufficient to eat and i severnl died on the way. He effected his escape to the coast and got away on a schooner. They were wrecked on a hidden rock near the coast of China. He and his companions drifted to sen in an open boat and for seven days were without food, ex cept a few crackers which they had in their I pockets on starting. He at length man aged to reach China, and arriving in Shng- d hai got steerage passage to Stan Francisco. a Federoff, the teacher, and his Wife had t been old friends of his in the little Russian d town in which they lived. They persuaded him to go northwith them while he labored t on a book detailing the awful hardships of < political prisoners in Russis. The book o indorsed all that George Kennan had told 1 and included much new and important matter. it was to comprise about 500 pages and was almost completed at the time of his death. The escaped constantly brooded over his trouble. About three months ago he went aboard the bark Corryphene, at t Karlhk and snot himself through the brain. Federoff intends to save the MSS. and have the book published. TWO BLOCKS COLLAPSE. Walls Undermined by Water From an Overflowing Sewer. AxaRO, 0., Nov. 7.--Two Howard street tt business blocks collapsed this afternoon p and it is feared that several persons were buried in the ruins. One of the blocks was a four-story brick, with stone front, ooou pied by Herrick & Sons, crockery jobbers. The other was a brick, three stories high, d occupied by the bakery and confectionery of S. R. Lafferty. About twenty people were in the dining room in the rear of the bakery when the ominous oracking began. They immediately rushed out of the back door and all escaped safely. A number of clerks and some customers in both stores were painfully out and bruised by flying debris while making their escape, but only Francis Miner and Walter Starley are thought to be fatally hurt. Herrick and F Lafferty both say all their clerks got out ge safely, but an eyewitness save he saw two tri or three persons on the sidewalk in front fe of Herrick's store when the erash came and be that they must be buried there. Debris is piled up on the sidewalk ten feet deep and re the fire department is removing it as rap- St idly as possible. The wall between the two mi blocks had been gradually undermined in so the last few years by water from an over- tom flowed sewer. One block was pronounced unsafe some time ago and Herriek said he yesterday called the attention of the owner to loose and crumbling brick in the cellar wall. L THE HELENA CAFE. The Dinner To-day Will Be Up to the High Sunday Standard. That the excellent dinner provided at the Helena Cafe on Sunday is appreciated by Helena people is shown by the steady grow ing patronage of the establishment. At very few places in the city do so many peo pie dine on Sunday, and certainly no hotel or restaurant has a larger patronage on that day. To-day there will be some new things on the bill, the season giving the proprietor an opportunity to surprise his friends. The hours are from four to eight p. m., and those who want a $1.25 meal for 50 cents should take advantage of the chance. When The BWe Hive wants to make room for new goods they cut values to such an extent that buyers are bound to come forth. Full line of yarns andworsteds at Fowles' Cash Store.
