#s ve That Therb
h O re me Pastle Country-Rich *poritE in the tiliver ell Oroedp. b~oars in St. Louisare still hr miner iway at Elizabeth. For the past six they have been at it, and have driven om over $2 a share down to 611h, the t has reiched since the West Granite date took'hold of it. Abontt'vo weeks Sit\went to 75, but there was a rally, and ~aitanaedin a few days to 86. Then an tI determined fight was made upon it, aided by the lack of encouraging news ~ ea property, on Thursday it went to Slsing that day at 65. Montana men ° ow the mine, say there is nothing to fy this raid on the stock, and they ao q'rnt for it on the ground that some one is 'jnxious to force the small holders to sell hl. uwork to get this stoc> as low as pot i.ible. In a recent issue of the St. Louis 5ilepublie there is a letter from Philiptlburg toaching the status of the Elizabeth, and eig. enn men who know the facts, say the tlr y'is a true one. The correspondent It is belog rumored around that the Eliz *beth company is likely to close down in a ',:ilo time for want of funds. This may or I;hii;Zy not be true; but is it neessavryl As h'' trding to the reports of the naperintend I ": eat tis not. It is generally known that aths vein upon which the company have oi' centrated their work for the past few iqir..the was struck north of the shaft at a A^ pth of 455 feet from the surface. The in was folloed q at-right into a ntoan taib some 80OQeetor mote without finding aything eanything of importanoe, haut : ere they struck ore which held out 124 fet. b Therich ore would average one foot in width and asiayed as low as fifty ounces and asehigh as 2,000. By the side of this rich oreorae from one to three feet of thirty ilve to fifty-ounce ore. As the drift ap proached the eastern ehd lines of the Eliza 'bath claim this chute of ore gave out, and ',t6o6 cross-cut was started to the north, isre, should they strike ore, it is more than probable that the apex would be on tlhei-Metallic company's ground. About the last work the old West Granite corn p nydid before giving up the ghost was to 1ase s a oar-load-of ore oune of the Butte cross: it which netted them about 173 ounces of agnt er por ton. This ore was taken out about 100 feet from the eastern end lines of i the'Elizabeth, on the same vein in which -'tho late chute of ore was struck, and about s'87 foet from the surfsace 'he late strike was 800 or 900 feet from the surface and something like the same distance from the end line. It does not re ,aUire as ory lively imagination to connect the two, and if it is toe same chute there is about 500 feet of good dry ptoping above them in the east drift from the shaft, which naccording to their own story is very rich and 124 feet in length. This ore could be taken out very cheaply, in fact, the present force could put on the surface ready for shipment about $1,000 worth of it every day. But for some strange reasons no effort Sis being mad8 in thiI`direotion. ' Some people will at once jump at the conclusion that the, strikes above detailed and reported by the superintendent were not true, but such is 'notthe case, as, while the superintendestt may have at times made ex aggerated reports, he i' an honest and con scientions man and in the .main his reports have been correct, but the management ap pear to be determine4 to force the stock down as low a ~ posible." 'THE CASIILE, MINES. The Large Ore Bodies-Need for Houses, Works or Cheap Transportation. It is asserted that the bulk of the ore that is mined to-day in Colorado would not pay the expenses of shipment to Denver and Pueblo if there were no railroads running to the various mining camps of that state, says the Castle Tribune. It isis also true of those in other portions of the union, The Castle district is no exception. The large ore bodies found in this locality will not bear shipment which costs $27 a ton. There has been ore sent to Aurora, Ill., from the leading mines of Castle that have netted handsome returns. Large quanti ties of mineral valued at $80 a ton have been forwarded to that smelter from the Judge. From the Great Eastern ore was sent there that netted over $30 a ton to the owners. From 'he Californiathere has been mineral treated at the Yellowstane smelter that averaged about $66 a ton. The min eral that is being disclosed in the lower I workings of the Cumberland, it is said, will average over $70 a ton. The product of the mines of Castle, like that of Butte and Leadville, need to be treated at home, or possesss cheap transpor tation to the smelters. It is claimed by an eminent Colorado mining engineer in re cent papers contributed ny him to the Lon don Mining Jom nal, that the average working cost of treating lead ores in 18'0 in the ten reduction plants in operation in that state was bout $12 a ton, while at Aurora, Omaha, Kansas City and St. Louis the same charges amounted to $15.75 and that in Montana in that same year. where there were four lead smelters, one of which was a private concern, that the average cost of working lead ores amounted to a little less than $25 a ton, which extra charge was due to the high price of good fuel. It would cost much less to treat the car bonate deposits of Castle. Such ores at the smelter points in Colorado command from $7 to $8 a ton over and above their assay contents. In addition to Castle possessing such desirable ore, it also possesses larg. deposits of coal that may make excellent coke. Few mining distriots are as favora bly provided for as this one. In a short time from its large ore and coal deposits it is destined to become one of the principal mining centers of the state. Work on the Pouwdrly and Blaine mines has been completred for the season. When labor was suspended on each of these prolr erties, the whole of the face of the drift where the last work was done on the l'ow derly is in mineral. It is composed of hard carbonates of lead that assay about twenty ounces in silver and S5 per cent. in lead. The formation in which this discovery was made is in lime. The workings on this property consistof two shafts, one of which has been sunk twenty-five feet, the other sixty-five feet. The ore body was found in I a drift that is run a distance of forty-live from the head of the tunnel, that was ex tended 123 feet. At the point where min oral was disclosed is near the west aide line of the claim, close to the Blaine ground. Both of these properties are owned by the Powderly Mining company. The Blaine is developed by two shafts that have attained a depth of thirty and twenty feet. STRIKE IN THE SILVEL BELL. A Belt Mountain Property WVhich Has a History, The Belt Mountain Miner reports a rich strike in the Silver Bell mine, at Barker. The history of the property, according to the Miner, is an interesting one. In the tall of 1480 the Bell, Silver and Southern Bell elaims were located by Messrs. Foster d& Olark. They worked on it some, showing up good ore, when, In 1882, the claims were bonded to the Clendenin Smelting con .ipany. This eomeany,. under the managRe .

After workinrp on the property about two months the bond os, iAt s said, after listening to his repl.rt. relinquished the bond, and Barker received another "black eye," No knalice it held to ward Messrs. Downs & Allen for this, but according to -rau~or,flt their foreman had reported the true condition of the mine they might now be in possession of one of the best properties in the state. The prop erty lay idle during the past summer, when in October Messrs. Humphrey & Riohard son, believing there was ore in the mine, fluaily secured a bond and lease and have again "tackled it," For the present Humphrey & Riehardson will drift into the mountain from the shaft and in the near future expect to erect a hoist, sink the shaft 100 feet, cross-out northward to the vein then stops out to ward the.. upper .tunnels., They are now working only two shifts and taking out about a carload daily.

Burned Up, SJohn Gleason. a man of about 40 years, is looked up at the city jail, charged with the crime of arson in setting fire to six stacks of hay and a log cabin on John on John B. Wilon' ranch near East Helena, at an early hour yesterday morning. Gleason expressed gratifcation at being safely behind the iron doors of the jail, which was far pre ferably, 'he -thou ht, to being in the hands of an angry mob at East Helena, as he had been a few hours before he was placed in charge of the police here. The people of East Helena were called out of their beds about two o'clock yester day morning by a bright glare on the Wil son ranch. Pretty nearly the whole male portion of the village went out to the fire. Six stacks of hay on the Wilson raneh, be longang to T. W. Branton and John Rabe, were burning. In a few minutes $800 worth of hay had gone dpip in smoke.. The East Helena people started back to town, and had nearly reached there when their attention was attracted by another bright light on the ranch. An unoccupied' log cabin was burning. The East Helena people at once resolved themselves in a search party, threw a line around the local ities of the two fires, and gradually drew towards the spot. As they did so they met Gleason coming from the direction of the burned hay and cabin. He was taken in charge at once and surrounded by an angry crown, some of whom wanted to lynch him on the spot. Cooler counsels prevailed and Gleason was marched to Helena by a num ber of his captors. They took him to the city jait where he was looked up for the night. lu the morning T. W. Branton, one of the owners of the hay, swore out two complaints against Gleason. One charges him with firing the hay belonging to Branton and Rafe. The other charges the burning of the log cabin which belonged to John B. Wilson, owner of the ranch. Setting fire to an unoccupied bui;ding is arson in the third degree, and is punishable by from three to fifteen yearse' imprisonment. Setting fire to the hay is arson in the fourth degree, the punishment for which is from two to five years in prison. The loss of the hay falls very heavily on the men who were working the ranch, Branton and Rafe. Gleason has engaged Henry C. Smith as his attorney, and a preliminary examination will oroba blv be held to-day. Gleason has been working around on va rious ranches in this section for some time. He boarded at East Helena. There are said to be several suspicious circumstances to connect him with the crime of which he is accused. One of them is that on Tues day night last a lot of hay on another ranch was burned, and Gleason left his room about half an hour before that fire oc cured. Gleason has so far given no ex planation of his coming from the neigh borhood of yesterday's fire. but denies that he had anything to do with it.
