SThe Question t Wagres Will Cut a 'Fgure in the Ceur d'Alene Country. It Must Be BSettled as Well as Rail road Rates Before Work is Resumed. New.' From Jeferson County Properties In the Amason Distriot-Dry Wolf Mines. The Cceur d'Alene Barbarian, successor .to the Wardner News, gives the following as the situation in that country: "The Bunker Hill and Sullivan properties, the Sierra Nevada, the Last Chance and the Stem winder, at Wardner, the Poorman and the Tiger at Burke, the Gem, the Galena and Badger at Gem, the Granite at Granite-ten of the largest producing mines in the Oceur d' Alenes-are closed. All operations, ex cept a small amount of development work, have ceased for an unlimited period. It is stated by the mine owners to be for at least four months, and the Barbarian has reason to believe that unless the complica tions which brought about this idleness are satisfactorily adjusted, for a much longer time than four months. The Barbariin has been at pains to interview dif ferent interests in the camp. The mine owners are not backward in say ing that at present prices of transporta tion and labor they cannot make money. The present prices of lead and silver will not warrant the working of the mines at the expense now necessary. Communica tions from the railroads show a determina tion on their part to .delay as long as pos sible the reduction of the traffic charges. "Though there is no outspoken evidence on the question of labor, it is plain to be seen that the mine owners have determined to ref use to be dictated to in the extreme way adopted by the professional agitators who work themselves into the ruling coun cils of the miners. Most of the mine own ere interviewed expressed themselves as in favor of organized unions, but positively opposed to the arbitrary, high-handed methods and demands made by them. The mine owners seem willing to counsel, but will not be ruled by their employee. Among the miners are many different views. '1 here is more or less dissatisfaction among them as to the plans proper for governing or ganized labor. "The Barbarian holds that a minor is getting little enough when he gets $3.50 per day. His work is worth $4, but ifs the mines are too low grade to pay it, as the mine owners say, the question should be compromised. As for every man who works underground getting as much as miners who have spent time, trouble and health to learn their trade, The Barbarian says it is preposterous, and says it boldly and plainly. To make no distinction be tween skilled and unskilled miners' labor is as absurd as it is to expect that the man who saws up kindling wood to be paid as much as the trained and experienced ear penter. Yet the many. miners of this camp have lent their influence to this very folly. They now mourn the consequence. "Another class in this community who sufer by the shut down are the merchants, professional men and laborers of a dozen trades. They all suffer because the source of their income, the mines, are closed. The Barbarian finds that this class are highly impatient at the pros$eot of a long shut down, and it thinks that they are justified in their general demand that the mine owners and'miners to get together and adjust their differences. This can be done at the same time railroad rates are being dis Ouused," JEFFERSON COUNTY MINES. Producers Shipping to East Helena Strikes on a Number or Properties. Otto Gieseke shipped a carload of ore from Cataract to East Helena the past week by the Northern Pacific. The Wilbur mine, Amazon district, is loading another car of ore at the Great Northern spur for shipment to East Hel ena. Tom Cain has struck a large body of ore in the tunnel on his mine about two miles above the mouth of Cataract. His tunnel was in about 400 feet when the ore was struck. In the tunnel of the Paragon mine near Basin a fine vein of ore was struck the past week, ranging from six to twenty-four inches in width and running up into the hundreds to the ton. The shaft on the Hiawatha mine, Catar act distriet, has reached the 500 level. A new outfit has contracted to make crosecuts and other deveiopment, and moved in this week to begin operations. Amos Calvin is pushing work on the Can adian mine, Redrock district. The tunnel is in 265 feet, and a crosscut has been started. It has progressed fourteen feet from the footwall, and the hanging wall has not yet been found. The shaft on the Hope mine at Basin is down 200 feet, and a crosscut is now being made. The ugrrund is being cleared for an air compressor, and there is promise of much work being done on and in the mine the comiur, year. Work is orogressing steadily on the Obe lisk mine, a couple of miles this side of Basin. 'the concentrator buildings are all enclosed, and part of the machinery has been received. Application is being made for a patent on the mine. Frank Finney has a very promising pros pect in the Sciota mine, Amazon district, which he is working under lease and bond from Messrs. hwoet and Buck. He has eight inches of fine carbonate and galena which promises to be continuous and to yield handsomely in the pfecious metals. It is thouoht that an extension of the Lolter lode at Elkhorn will in all probabil ity be discovered in the Allie J., which is located half a mile south of it. A tunnel has been sent in which will out it 1lt) feet. I)RY WOLF MINES. What is Beinog Done in a Promising District In lteagher County. A correspondent of the Belt-Mountain Miner, writing of the Dry Wolf mines, says:' The Dry Wolf Mining company, better known as the Pierce & Hughby, has closed down for the winter, but the general opin ion is that they will start in the spring by putting on a "baby hoister" and quite a force of men. They have about seven feet of ore in the breast of the lower tunnel, which is in 200 feet. In the 100-foot winze they have two feet of ore at forty-foot level and eighteen inches at the seventy-foot; the bottom has not been crosseot to the lead yet.. This lead has been traced for about 700 feet and shows ore in several places on the surface. Col. Blankenship has let a contract on his Fissure lode, the amount of work and price paid I did not learn, although the contrac tore, Messrs. Perrin & Switzer, have un covered a very nice.showing of galena. Lackie Bros. are sinking on the property recently bonded from Ellis & Lackie. They are taking out some ore, and have a good looking property. Col. Blankenehip and Jack Williams are working on a contract for Cap. Taylor, of Great Falls. They are working in country rook, and do not expect ore for some dis tance. H. E. Maltby has two men workina on the Forest Rose, sinking on a seam of sa lena and lead matter. The Queen of the Hllls. There seems to be something wrong in the Queen of the Hills Mining company, judging from the startling drop in the price of the stock lately, says the UGrat Falls Leader. A roeporter of that- pap Lays that it has been offered as low of 8.

L. NeiThirt, There Is no. doubt as the value of the pro0 arty, but it is said that the comanye.has been lpending( a largelanount of money oe netly f'or improvement; and this bna cramped some of the heavy etook holders and led to differences of opinion in regard to the policy to be pursued. Those in a condition to speak authoritively on the subject are reticent, but there seems to be little doubt as to the fact that thoere is some trouble among the principal owners, anl there has certainly been a large amount of stock plaeod on the market with disao. trous results as to the prices A few months ago it sold readily at $L60 to $1.75.

Alithe time during the past year from ten to' thirty refugees, representing one of the )ther factions of this country, have been iuartered in the American legation. They have been entertained, and at the expense of Minister Elan, He refused to accept a penny from those who sought his proteo lion, whether congressionaliste or Balms oedists. He expended nearly a year's sal iry in behalf of the refugees whom he ept in the legation. The public appears to be getting better acquainted with these factc, and this accounts for the revulsion to feeling in regard to Minister Egan's re o11t. Eduardo Matta, president of the chai )er of deputies, and many others 'whose lives were saved by Minister Egan during ialmaceda's dictatorship, favor his reten ion hero as American minister. Augustin Edwards, whose life and property were saved through Egan's influence, is the only prominent member of the congressional earty who now seems anxious to have Egan sailed home. "I court a full investigation if allmy acts," said Egan to-day. "I have io fear that anything detrimental to my rputation will be discovered." A crowd t 'young men last night sacked the office )f the La Republica, a newspaper which rigorously opposed the present regime. 'he police'were not present to afford any protection. PRISONERS IN REVOLT. rhose on Deer Island. Near Boston, Not Satlstlod. BosTO , Feb. 3.-An outbreak was re ported this morning among the prisoners at Deer Island, and fifty policemen were sent from this city to the scene. 'This is the second riotous demonstration that has oc courrd in that institution within a few weeks. It is stated the men refused to go to work when orde:ed this morning and were threatening the officers' lives. Details if men from the various stations were im nediately sent down on the police boat,and heir arrival there was announced by Capt. Bragdon, who notified headquarters that more men were needed, as the rouble was serious. Additional assistance was sent and the reserve police were or lered to be in readiness for immediate ser rice. When the police arrived at Deer sland a large number of convicts were making a great noise. They refused to go o work and threatened the police, who sumbered fifty men. The police drew their iuobs and in a short time the mob was un lor subjection, after the flee use of the )atone. The refractory prisoners were oocked in their cells. Commissioner Devlin ittrlbutes the trouble to lack of room at •he institution. There are between 800 and )00 adult prisoners on the island and only 120 cells. A TWO-HORNED DILEMMA. the Whisky Trust Endeavoring to Steer Clear of Both Prongs. COcAoo, Feb. 3.-The directors of the whisky trust adjourned to-night. Almost i11 of to-day's session was devoted to the matter of leases. President Greenhut's dea was that the leased Iproperty should he purchased outright. This would neceeii late the expenditureof nearly $4,000,000 and the directors could not unite upon the luestion. The leases expire May 1 and the trust has the option of purchase or re-val aation. An increased six per cent. an re-valuation would necessarily mean a greater rental, and the di rectors do not want to pay it. The Langfords apparently are not worrying as to which horn of the dilemma the trust lakes bold. Another point is, if the direc tors accept revaluation it may necessitate giving exact figures as to profits and the amount on hand. All this was fully dis oussed without definite result. President Greenhat took no stock in the story from Boston that the federal grand jury was about to return an indictment against the trust. Bad Intended to Marry. WILKESBnnRR, Pa. Feb. 3.-Anthony Brown, of Pittston, and Miss Harriet Ruitledge, of Durgea, came to Wilkesbarre last night and put up at a boarding house. This morning the landlady discovered gas escaping in their room. When the room was broken into the woman was dead and the man nearly asphyxiated. He may not live. The couple came to Wilkesbarre to get married. They secured a license but failed to secure an alderman to perform the ceremony. T'hey drank heavily the night before and it is supposed they blew out the gas before retiring. Systematic Effort Urged. DENrvR, Feb. 3.-At a meeting of the chamber of commerce to-night, a resolu tion introduced by Ex-SBenator Tabor was agreed to, asking all political parties to de clare in favor of bi-metallio coinage at all their conventions, great and small. and to inetruot their delegates and representatives to use all honorable means for the inser tion in the platform of a pledge for the free and unlimited coinage of silver. lRaised On the First One.
