Developments in a Re.o Distriot Directly Tributary tb the Capital. Reports of Strike in Several Mln Iag Beotione in Jefferson County. 'rocess to Work Ores of the Rovenaq Miss-Samapling Works for the Belt Meountal Country. RIMES, Feb. 11.-LSpeolal.3-Wm, Bad ging, who came down from Nigger Hill district, reports a big strike of $90 rook in the Mountain View mine. This properly is owned by Frank Taylor, Thomas Edward and Wm, Budging. There are several ether properties in the same losality that look very promising. There is no doubt that Nigger Hill will loom in the spring. U. W. Darling and Mr. Kent, who have taken a lease and bond on the Young Ore land for $50,000, have struck fourteen inches of ore which assays $800 per ton. This property Is situated on Ten Mile. Reynolds and Daisy, who have leased the Get There, on Red Mountain, are taking out a car load of ore for shipment. N. Vestal and I. Hughes have struck ore on The Ideal, in Ten Mile district. Wm. Croinok, who has several men em ployed sinking a new shaft on the Bqllion, has encountered eight inches of galena are. The Estella is producing some good ore in the new shaft. This property is located on the east extension of the Peerless Kate. The Oleander, owned by 0. W. Darling and Mr. Clay, will soon be working again. Preparation is being made to work the Opossum claims, owned by Thos. Newlen & Co., on the head of Monitor. Kennedy and Woodruff, who leased the Rebecca, in the Vaughn district, report that they are getting out some fine ore. JEFFERSON COUNTY MINES. Pushing Work on the Smelter-Assess meat on Josephnlue trike. Work on the Boulder smelter is being pushed with all despatch, and it will not be long before it will be ready for the machinery. Crosscutting from the 500-foot level of the Hiawatha mine, Cataract district, has been commenced. It is thought the vein will be tapped in a hundred feet on the north crosscut. J. O. Briecoe last week sent a pumping outfit to the famous Evening Star mine, Cataract district, and the development of that property is to be resumed as soon as the water is taken out. Necotiations are in progress for the sale of quite a number of properties in the Big foot district. If consummated, as seems probable, it will be the means of opening up the district in fine share. An assessment of ten cents a share has been levied on the stock of the Josephine Mining company to raise $20,000 to make a payment on the mine. The assessment is due March 5th. The property of the com pany is at the head of Basin creek. A streak of high grade ore has been found in the Rock of Ages, on Cataract creek, a couple of miles from Basin, owned by Hark Estee, now being operated under lease to the Prince Bros.; the strike was made at the depth of 140 feet, the ore running nearly $200 a ton. James Thompson and partners have a carload or two of ore on the dump of the Blue-Eyed Nellie mine, Cataract district. ready for the Boulder smelter when it starts ap. The ore is pyritic, very promis ing, and the patties have three locations on the vein. They are developing the prop erty by a tunnel. Last week Charles Hener struck a five foot vein of pyritic are in his tunnel on a claim on Hoodoo c eek, Cataract district, and everybody in the vicinity is much en couraged by the strike. The tpnnel is in 150 feet. The claim is an extension of the Timberline, and James Thompson has i location on the same called the Grover Cleveland. REVENUE.MINE AND MILL. The First MIill in the .State Using the Cya nide of Potassium Process. The Revenue mine has been well known for the last four years to the general public, having the reputation of being a large pro ducer and well developed at present time, with about $500,000 worth of ore in sight, says the Bozeman Chronicle; but owing to the refractory nature of the ore, thle owners, up to last September, have been unable to catch the gold. When their manager, Rt. . B. Turner, made a sucoessful test run of one car of ore in Denver, Col., on what is known as the MaoArthur-For rest process, the returns were a great sur prise, showing a saving of over 9D per cent of both gold and silver, where by the old process of stamping and amalgamating a saving of only 27 per cent was made. Mr. Turner imntmediately made more tests, and as a result his company has adopted this new process, and has now under construction a twenrs-five-ton mill and expect to start up by March. Mr. Turner, manager of the IRcvenue mine, has full con cidence in the success of thbis process, and speaks of it in the highest terms. ie has now over 300 tons in the mill ready for treatment. Upon this mill proving this process to be a sucess, it is bound to make Madison county a large producer of gold and the Bozeman citizens congratulate the citizens of Madison county upon their large deposits of ore hnd the success of treating the same. Those who have for years longingly hoped that a process might be developed to suo cessfully work the pecunliar ores of the rich R.od Bluff mines, will be snore thin pleased to know that Mr. Turnet has discovered the desideratum. The impetus to be felt, and to be felt at once, will be great. Not only will this great mining region, which has so long lain dormant feel the glow of activity; but the Bozeman and the.Gallatin Valley, to which the mining camps of Pony, Red Bluff, Revenue and other3 are tributary, will partake of their full share of the prosperity which will follow the success ful reduction of these ores. BELT SIOUNTAIN MINES. Branch of thie II. S. FttampliIg Works to Be Established at Barker. Spruille Braden, S. E. Atkinson and C. W. Wanzer were in camp last weekin vestigating the feasibility of establishing a branch of the U. 8. Sampling works here, says the Bolt Mountain Miner. After due deliberation the parties decided to give the enterprise a trial. The old Clendinin smel ter which has been idle for the past year, has been leased. This eontains crushers, rolls, boiler and engine all in good condi tion. The only Improvements required will be to change the position of the crushers so that tihe ore will be handled al most automatically, and change the piosi tion of some of the shafting. The machabi nery is said to be almost as good as new end will re.suire no repairs. The railroad company will put in a spur below the sampler so that the ores may pass through the wo:ks down into the cats without un necessary handling. The aonpacity of the works iso about sixty tons daily, the com pany, however, will be satisfied at the start if they can get ftrty tons daily. Occasional mention has been made of the mineral bearing character of the country south of Barker, drained by Spruce gulch, and several prospectors have spent oonsid erable time In examininag the district. The developments by the Ontario comany have proven conclusively that it is a rich mineral district. In December George Duncan lo cated the Amazement and fourother claims.

TROUBLE IN THE TUNNEL. no A Slide in That Neuar Wlekes Causes Delay I to Trains, on Word was received in Helena yesterday mt afternoon that a sjide had occurred in the Wiokes tunnel, on the Montana Central. No details as to its extent were obtainable, but it was stated by railroad officials that we they believed it would be repaired in twenty-four hours. Superintendent John son was on his way south when the slide occurred, and a big gang of men was at once put to work to clear the track. I he mishap is supposed to have been occasioned or by the workmen, who are engaged in lining the tunnel.' The train from the east did Co not go through, passengers for Butte being ha transferred to the Northern Pacitic. There th will be no train south dn the Montana Cen- w, tral this morning, for points beyond the tunnel but Butte passengers will be carried v over the Northern Pacitic, tickets issued H' by the former road being good for that trip ag over the latter line. It is probable the ro damage will be repaired this afternoon and se if so the train from the east will run through. If it is not repaired passengers pr will go over the Northern Pacific via Gar- tri rison. pr Extent or the Damage.

"If the grand jury o that meets on the 15th is going to investi gate school affairs." he continued, "I be- f lieve the Palmer house matter is one that a should be inquired into. When the trus tees bought the lot of Palmer, my under standing was that it included the house. The latter was worth about $700. It has I been moved to a lot in the vicinity and is, I believe, now rented. Mr. Palmer could probably tell whether he sold the house with the lot or not. This is a point I do t not think the newsparers have touched upon, and one which I believe a grand jury investigation would clear up." lliss Jeonnie Walker will be in Helena I Monday, 'ITuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 15, 10 and I7.

SThe publication of Gov. Toole's' correspondence with Searetary Foster of the treasury department regarding 8 the violations of the Chinese exolusion ract, probably caused the government to a move a little quicker., The department has i sent Special Agent J. J. Crowley to do what he can. Ho has called on Goev. Toole. In Sconversation with the goverlior he said the I f denanrtment was greatly hampered in its work by lack of appropriations. At pres I ent but three men are at the command of the department to keep an eye on Sseveral hundred miles of thle inter 1 national bouudary line. Agent Crowley Ssaw very readily that Montana's northern I boundary line offered superior advantages for the smuggling of Chfinese. The agent does not know of any.cases where Chinese I have been smuggled~over the line into Mon tana. One of the reasons why he does not 1 know is becanuse his office is in St. Paul where he is kept pretty busy. It is not the fault of Mr. Crowlev that the frontier is t - not patrolled. As he says, the treasury de partment is not allowed enough funds to t provide for a corps of revenue otlicels, Mr. i Crowley has gone to Butte. He is expected in Helena in a day or two when he will have another conference with the governor. rMaresr& Fisher, the butcher, hvo remooved from Warren strees, to tiarmonia hall, on Broad way.

Peter Woods Is Now serving a Life Sentence for the Murder. While the Supposed Corpse Appears In Butte and Becomes BHet to His Own Estate. Peter Woods, a railroad seotion hand, is now in the penitentiary at Deer Lodge serving a life sentence for the murder of one Z. A. Short. The Z. A. Short for whose murder Woods is confined, is alive. The man he killed was William A. Short, an old timer in Montana, having been here since 187,. Whether the fact that Woods was convicted of killing a man who is not dead will secure him a new trial is a ques tion now. The murder occurred last September in a railroad camp in Jefferson county. Woods shot a man who, he says, he thought was crazy. The dead man was recognized as Z. A. Short, a resident of blutte, where he had considerable property in the, shape of houses. Public Administrator Murphy, of that city, took charge of the estate. Woods was tried for the crime at Boulder, con victed, and sentenced to life imprisonment. He was taken to Deer Lodge some weeks ago. About two weeks ago Z. A. Short rode into Butte front Bozeman, and pre sented to the public administrator tangible proof that he was not dead. The adminis trator turned the supposed dead man's property back to him. Interest now. turned on who was the man W. A. Short, who was killed. Coroner J. H. Fisk, of Bedford, Jefferson county, near which town the murder occurred, took enough interest in the case to hunt the matter up. ,Until three days ago he knew little more than has already been published. Learning that Short had left a bundle with a friend by the name of Joseph Smith, a ferryman, living a few miles down on the Missouri, he sent word to have it forwarded. The bundle was forwarded as directed. In it were found several letters and postal cards. Three of the letters were from Mary Buckmaster, of Vera, Ill., and were addressed to William A. Short. She ad dresses him as "my son." Several of the postal cards were from army comrades with whom he had served in Company B., Seven teenth Wisconsin Infantry. Another letttr was from Major Martin Maginnis and one was from Green B. Baum, commissioner of pensions. One postal card was from a brother in North Carolina. The contents of the letters and postal cards showed that W. A. Short had been in 'Montana since 1875; that he taught school before he came to this state and for awhile after, in Meagher county; that he had not been long in one place, shifting about, famming, mining, or doing anything else he could to earn an honest living. It was evident that hard luck and hard times had followed him, though the contents of the letters indicated that Short was an honest and conscientious man. The letter from Commissioner Baum showed that Shott had made application .for a pension, having been wounued in the head before Atlanta, Ga. The commissioner's letter, dated July, 1891, six weeks before Short was killed, was mn answer to one request ing the postoflfce addresses of the officers of tls company. whose evidence he wanted in supportouf his claim. A 'Oleap sacque coat, felt hat, and a silk handkerchief, all very much worn apd of no money value, completed the contents of the bundle. Cor oner Fisk immediately communicated the circumstances of Short's death to his mother, who, until then, was no doubt ignorant of the tragic death of her son. The mistake of supposing the dead man was Z. A. bhort no doubt arose from the similarity in initials, and the fact that nev i eral people near Bedfo-d knew there was sueach a person as the Butte man.

The Butte papers of Saturday published the results of the visit of the health author ities to the restaurants, provision and meat stores of that city. While it is not possible that such a condition of affairs prevails in Helena, as is alleged in Butte, yet it is probable a tour of inspection by the Helena health board at this time would not come amiss. The Anaconda Standard thus tells of the discoveries made: Four turkeys were condemned at Cohn's, declared to be rotten, and three ducks at the Quaker restaurant were found so rotten that the breasts almost fell to pieces. These were condemned. At the New York kitchen a box of fish was found that was partly disintegrated from rottenness. The cook said the fish had just been brought in and he had not accepted it and would not I have done so. The fish were condemned. a The doctor thought thefish must have been several months dead. The oflioeres found stale meat and decay Sing provisions in many kitchens, and it Swas enough to make any one sick. Some way the cooks have a knack of dressing up e the bad meat, spicing it and making it pre sentable on the table. H. G. Valiton, the sex-mayor, was, however, badly poisoned by eating turkey at a white restaurant last Sunday. Somo of the turkeys that were condemned to-day atvarious places had big holes in them. TIhe prorrietors said the Sholes were made by mice, but D)r. Robarts Ssays they died from cholera, in his opinion, back an the plains of Kansas and Nebraska. "You see," said the doctor, "when cattle a die of lump jaw they are fed to the turkeys and chickens. Then the poultry dies of cholera, but is shipped all the same, and we eat it. It is worse than cancer." The health officer is going to have the thing stopped, and will now make another effort to have the council I ass a clause in the health ordinance forbidding the bring ing of poultry into Butte that is undrrawn. The markets and restaurants hays become as bad as they were a year ago, when the Angean stables were cleaned. But here 1 after they will be closely watched. Sanitary SPoliceman Sullivan has now provided him self with a clan of coal oil and a big butoher knife, and everythint that looks to him to be unfit to eat will be cut open and filled with oil. SA terrible state of affairs was also found in the rear of the markets and restaurants, s and min alleyways. They seem to have im agined that the health department of the city was sleepy, because it had been found necessary to curtail the expense of runninta it, and alleyways are as bad as ever. In most aonses, however, willingness was ex pressed to have things cleaned up. Park and Galena alleys were particularly bad. rMiasks! Macks! Masks! at The Bo HLive, Buckle's armles Salve.
