Taylor was interviewed by a I reporter of the Great Falls Lehder a few days since and expressed himself as follows i in speaking of the Dry Wolf mining region: I "All the claims in this district run in iron I *arbonates and all carry galena, copper I and silver. The Blue Lead has at present the biggest showing of any mine in the Belt mountaiqs. The owners, two bankers of Lewistown, and Mr. Jensen, have 100 feet of tunnel and sixty feet of shaft. There are fourteen feet of ore in sight now in themine; the ore carries from 13 to 20 per cent of copper and assays as high as 800 ounces of silver per ton. The showing is wonderful. Mr. Jensen, one of the three owners of the Blue Lead, was offered $20. 000 for his interest in the mine a few daveys ago, but he would not accept it. The for- 1 Jmation in the Dry Wolf district is the same I as that at Loadville, but it is necessary to go down to a considerable depth to strike hie main body of the ore." Capt. Taylor "thinks that when all the shafts have been sunk to the necessary depth the showing for this region will be equal to any mining district in the country. On Dry Wolf. Running Wolf and in the Yogo miniig 4' district there will be from 200 to 300 men at work this winter and everyone in that ter ritory is feeling jubilant over the prospects for mining, The Argentine. K Without any booming or extra flourish I of trumpets, Evolution district is rapidly coming to the front as one of the most promising mining sections in the Cceur d'Alenes, says the Wardner News. Col. J. H. Davey and son have taken charge of the Argentine mine, and are rebuilding the I tramway, ore bins, etc., preparatory to I q.hipping. There are in sight at present on + this property between 16,000 and 20,000 tons 1 of ore ready to break, ana the mine is in 1 good condition to commence operations. A :·aleof 10,000tons has been already con- E tracted for, and the owners expect to be I Sready to ship by Dec. 1. The mine is opened to a depth of 3840 feet, containing three a Slevels, and a force of thirty men are kept 1 ;constantly employed. Birch Creek .1lnes. There is considerable activity in the I Birch creek mines and there will be from $.5,000 to $10,000 invested in development Work in that promising region this winter, clays the Meagher County News. The lnoawbank has straightened their shaft and are now hoisting with a whim, and the con tract is let for 100 feet more work. The SPower claims are being worked by a large force and work may centinue all winter. J` .

A Ship Loaded With Contract Slaves Goes to the Ilottom. BSAN FPawArao, Dea. 2.-In a brief dis patch from Mansanillo comes news of the wreckina of the brig Tahiti, with every soul of her 270 South sea laves minssing. This wreck is noteworthy, as it marks the failure of the first extensive attempt at "Black.Birding" on the Pacific coant. The brig Tahiti. it will be recalled, touched in Drake's bay, fifteen miles north of the Golden Gate, early in September, orammed with Gilbert islanders under contract to coffee planters in the San Benito district of Mexloo. All the horrors of the slave traffic on the African coast were recounted during the few days the 'anita lay in Drake's bay in distress. The American steamer itoseville arrived at Manzanillo Friday from Islapa, and her captain re ourted that he passed the wreak of the Tahita eleven miles southwest of Lizard Point. She was floating bottom up, with rudder gone and ballast shifted. It was evident she had capsized while on the star board tack, as all port rigging had been out away in an attempt to prevent her going over. SThe disaster had occurred thirty days be. fore they sighted the hulk. The steamer stopped and sent aboat off, but not a living thing could be found. The vessel's interior s could not be searched to determinehow i many of the islanders' bodies were still be tween decks. The brig's yawl was still by her, but two small boats were gone. This f gives little hope that any lives were saved, I for only the yawl would have stood any chance of surviving the storm. From Man zanillo inquiries were sent to many ports on the coast, but not a survivor was reported having made the shore. The Tahiti's cargo of contract slaves was obtamed on Gilbert island. They were nearly starving, and they were easily induced to sign a contract to work for three years at $8 per month, with the proviso that at the end of the term they were to be given free return passage. H. H. Leavitt, of New York, was three-fourths owner of the brig, and Capt. Ferguson owned the remaining fourth. Sept. 110 the brig put in at Drake's bay for repairs to her rigging. Dr. Gibson, the eurgon, left the vessel and returned to San I Francisco. He declared he would not re- 1 main longer on board if he we:e paid a for- i tune, as she was unseaworthy, and there I was also chance of trouble with the island ere. 'TIhe hold was sandwiched with bunks c three and four deep. August 19 the brig c was caught in a squall. The topsails were I blown into shreds, and both fore sail and d main sail were carried away. The vessel i lurched in the heavy sea, and the islanders, cooped up in the hold, were thrown into t deadly terror. Alter the wind subsided t light sails were rigged and the vessel next h put into Drake's bay for repairs. Ferguson, by sickness in his family, was forced to stay here, and Capt. C. Erickson ' took charge. A strong effort was made to d induce the government tostopthe shipment t of these laborers to lMexico, but it failed, as Ii the ship's papers were declared all right. c The islanders were very simple people, and v evidently knew nothing of the hard work P in store for them. They refused to accept n half dollars for some petty curios, but I readily sold the same articles for a nickel, 0 with which they were familiar. Very few e; could speak any English. Besides the cap- ii tain the and islanders, the Tabitti carried a three mates, a vhysician, Dr. S. Crymser, hi two cooks and twenty seamen. Not a word b has been received from any of these by it friends in this city. s, GREAT FALLS NEWS. Miner Stricken-Ball Extracted-One Year p in thle Pen.

The change has b r been in a large measure due to a relief from N the extreme tension lately existing in Euro V pean markets. The late depression abroad, p while due to real and serious caunes, has no ei doubt been aggravated by speculative in- a - fluenoes, and these influences have been I exerted to close upon the verge of I producing widespread panio. The Euro pean "bears," however, appear to have known exactly how far they could no with out provoking general disaster, and just when a crash was feared have become buy- in ere, with the effect of a general recovery of IU confidence. Apart from these speculative movements, H there seems to have boon an improvement in the European situation in some material m respects. Tho danger of trouble in Paris and at St. Petersburg, arising from the threatened failure of the Russian loan, has been averted by the czar's government re- H lieving the Paris negotiators of $40,000,000 co of the $200,000,000 for which they had be- an come responsible. A rumor was also circu lated that the Rothschilds had been in- j duced to extend aid to the negotiators; . which, though probably unfounded, tended to relieve the situation. At the same time, the embarrassments of the Bank of Spain (' have been so far settled with its Paris cred itors as to enable the bank to renew its _ wonted advances, thereby restoring confi dence in Madrid. These ameliorations at the most sensitive points of European finance have naturally infused a more contident feeling at other centers which were suffering in sympathy. The political kaleidoscope has also exhibited more hopeful hues. M. de Giers' visit to Paris and Berlin appears to have aimed not only at the protection of Russia's threat ened financial position and to have been in that respect more or less successful, but also at effecting understandings calculated to soften the dangerous asperities existing between European courts; and here also, it may be hoped, the ambassador achieved - some measure of success. The French minister of foreign affairs is reported to have said that the views interchanged with Mi. de Gies were "of a very firiendly and pacific nature," which clearly must be con strued as having reference to relations with Germany and her allies. Though little comes from German sources as to the pur port of de Giers' visit to Berlin, yet a Russian semi-official paper sig nificantly expresses the hoe that the ambassador "will succeed in dispelling all misunderstandings between RIussia anud Germany," and-which is still more erg nifleant-"that he will succeed in bringing about an improvement in the present rela tions betwoen Germany and Franeo, in or der to produce a complete appeasement." These words are a trustworthy indication of a desire on the part of Russia and France to bring about a m)re lacific condition of relations as between the leading European U powers; and it can hardly be supposed that Germany will treat such approaches lightly. Pa This is the first ray of light that has pene- s trated the gloom of European politics for many a day, and the results will be watched wth hopoful interest the world over. The L. week has also witnessed the lifting of the A. war cloud that had settled over Brazil, AA Fresident Fonseoa having resigned and his successor having resumed normalrelations toward the legislature, while the btste of Rlio Grande del iul is said to have revoked its decree of secession; Brazil is therefore A. again at peace and affaire are taking their L. usual con:se. This remarkable concurrence of events of a pacflle tendency pute, for the timo being at least, a widely different aspect upon for- l eign alfaire from that which lately excited an almost hopeless apprehension on the European markets. From quarters re silonsible for all that apprehension, there comes an open expression of desire for a revision of relations in the interest of peace. It is true, it may prove obstacles stand between the desire and the achieve ment; but so muchl as has transpired in these iniatory effort warrants a more hope ful attitude in the financial markets of Eu rore and America. During the week RussIa has closed her ports against the export of wheat; which, added to her irevious stopplage of exports of oats, muat have the effect of largely increasing the shipments of those cereals from our own ports. 'Theo lah e shipments of grain are adding remarkably to the volume of our exports. For the three months ending with Oct. 31, the total exports of merchandise ecerd those for th samine period of 1690 by $34,000,000, while the importsa for the same month fall $15. 000,000 below tho.s of last year. The trade balance in our favor, for the three monthls, is $1;4,L0' ,009. compared with only $15,000, 000 in 1890. Thin balance, however, has been sot off by eirnultaneous gold imports amounting to $25,000,0(X), which left an out standing balance in our favor of $3).0000,U00 at the end of October. As that balance has since bcten increased, the inference is ob vious as to the prospects of continued im ports of gold. Under the gloomy condi tions recently existing abroad, it is not un likely that this bal:ince nmight be liquidated to some extent by the return of our securi t:es; but the more hopeful symritoms in both trhe finances and the politics of Eu rojle ahbove r,.ferred to favor liquidation in !gold rather th.n securities. At hborl also, current influences are favorable to the stlrck market. The eondi tiio of the bank reserves is conducive to continued eo. a in money. The trade of the country at large is b;einning to show a lonure distinct response to the stimulus conring from our abundant harvest.
