THE CUMBAELAND SOLD,
J. Kennedy Todd & Co., of Nev York, Seeure a Controlling In terest in the Property. The Mine to Be Opened on a More Liberal Plan to Satisfy Easternera Something About the Other Produeerg in the Great Camp-The Mining Out look in the Marysville Distriet. For some time there have been rumors of the proposed sale of a controlling interest in the Cumberland mine at Castle. The deal has been consummated, according to the following from the Husbandman: "A transfer was effected Tuesday of this week at the First National bank, of this place, through Mr. C. E. Severance, of a control of the Cumberland Mining & Smelting company to the firm of J. Kennedy Todd A Co., of New York. Messrs. Todd & Co. were represented here by Mr. C. O. Parsons, well known in Boston and New York min ing and financial circles. On the future policy of the company he said that would be a matter for the consideration of the new board. The company is now working in a bode of fine carbonate ore, but to sat isfy eastern investors it will be necessary to open the mine on a more liberal scale and show op reserves for future opera tions. Mr. Parsons returned to Castle yesterday to attend a meeting of the trustees when it is expected a new board will be elected. From the best in formation we can gather in regard to the matter there will be no change in the pol icy of the company except that develop ment will be prosecuted more vigorously. The sale places the company in an easy position financially and interests unlimited capital in its operations, and too much praise cannot be ascribed to C. E. Sever adre for the wonderful executive ability. disployed in interesting such a strong firm in the Castle mountain mines, as it can scarcely fail to result in great benefit to the company and to the country at large." In reference to the work now being done on the mine the same paper says: The Cumberland mine is being worked more successfully at the oresent time than ever before. The ore body is so large and the hoisting and other machinery so complete that the matter of supplying the two smelters is but a small item and it is done by six men stoping. There are, however, about thirty men employed continually in the mine. Part of them are running drifts to better explore the mine, some sinking shafts, and others preparing timbers for the various places. A large botly of lime rock has been found near the vein at the 500-foot level which is just the thing re quired in smelting, and it is being mined and used for that purpose. Finding this lime rock has been the means or a great saving to the company. It is taken out about as cheaply as the ore and is delivered at the smelter in the same manner--the cars in which it is first placed being holsted and run to the ore bins without change. One great feature of the mine is that there is no waste to be picked out. It is all ore and it is so easily smelted that the actual cost for mining the ore is very slight. theismelters are running and a steady stream of metal is pouring. The largest outout yet reached was attained last Friday, two carloads of bullion being the result of the days run. and it came from about ninety tons of ore. The good weather of the past month has enabled the teams to get a good supply of coke ahead and it is not likely that the smelters will have to close down on account of the want of fuel. Mr. Thomas Ash, president of the company, is in personal charge of the mine and smelters and is making numerous improvements over the former management, saving many dollars for the company. But he says, however, that the task is too severe for him to stand and that he does not expect to remain long after he gets things completely systemat ized and in better working shape. The Cumberland is by no means the only mine in the Castle district which is ready to produce ore in considerable quantities. though it is the best equipped of any and has considerably the start in the way of a reduction plant. Mining men here who are well posted state that there are no less than twelve mines which, with a littlo prepara tion, could be producing ore in large quan tities. Prominent among these are the Yellowstone, Iron Chief, Lead. Alice, Legal Tender, Judge and Blackhawk. 'lhe Yel lowstone is represented as looking very fine now, and with a couple of months' sinking and the running of levels will be in trim for a large output of ore. Work in this mine is progressing favorably and* the main shaft will be continued to the depth of 700 feet and the ore body cut at inter vals of fifty feet along the way. The ma chinery is ample and in good trim for ope:a tion, and the work of cross-drifting as weil as sinking is kept up right along. The new shaft of the Iron I(hie2 has en countered an eight-foot vein which is hailf filled with ore of a quality quite the equal of any found in the camp and the owners are much encouraged. 'J'lley are proceed ing moderately, however, doing most of the. work within themselves and a few men who are to take their pay in stock in the mine. The Legal T'ender, Alice and Judge havu good hoisting machinery and pumps. 'They could in a short time, if there was a mar ket, he producing ore.

It in rumored that several of the oflicers of the lMontana company, limited. in com pany with some well-known mining men, ae about to start a new company for the purpose of developing prospects and plao iug tham on the market, and that their prospectus will shortly be before the public. We have heard that they have already been offered several good orospeots. If this re port is true we should think it would be a good thing for this camp and perhaps be the means, not only of onening up sonm more mines in this district, but of enablint some of our hard.worktng prospectors ti realize something from the claims theJ have stood by so long. A FAMILY AFFAIR. A "*Dago Colony" on Clancy Street Split lato behtsmis. The Poles and Hungarians who live on Clanoy street, on the east aide, are usually an orderly set of people. They live close together, and, aside from their loud man ner of talking among themselves, give no trouble to anybody. eooently, however, they have dlsagreed o"I some national, state, municipal or social question, it is impossi ble to find out which. The only known fact is that they have disagreed. Early in the week Clancy street was startled by a babble of tongues and the wild gesticulations of what has become known as the dago colony. One of them was particularly demonstra tive, and danced and pranced around the wide of the hill, shaking his fists under everybody else's nose, and apparently chal lenging any man, bar Sullivan, to come out on the turf and fight to a finish. As a con sequence, one of the colony, Roco Marisie, who speaks a little English, went before Judce Sanders and swore out a complaint, charging Mike Kasonovio with making loud and uniusual noiqes, using threatening language and wanting to fight, and in other ways disturbing the peace and serenity of Clancy street. Kasanovio was arrested. The case will be heard on Tuesday, when the Kasanovics, the Marisios, the Karolo vices, the Measalovios, the Novitzkovics and the other disagreeing parties will tell their stories to County Attorney Nolan.

Only one pi a dce. fry PERMITS COOO FOB AYEA ' Important Ruling by the Seeretary of the Interior on Timber Cutting. The Life of no Permit Will Be Longer Than Twelve Months From Its Issue. Only Fifty Per Cent of the Merehantable Timber Can Be Out, and no More Than Is Absolutely Required. The fear expressed that the granting of permits by the secretary of the interior to persons to out timber off the non-mineral lands belonging to the government would result in the oreation of great timber mon opolies, according to a recent ruling of the secretary in a Montana case, is groundless. The decision referred to related to a per mit asked for by a resident of Meagher county, and is the most important of the timber cutting rulings yet made by the in terior department. According to the gen eral public land act passed by congress March 3, 1891, the secretary of the interior was empowered to make such regulations as he deemed necessary governing the cut ting of timber from the non-mineral pub lie lands in the states of Colorado, Mon tana, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nevada, the territory of Utah and the district of Alaska. After the gen eral act had been passed a supplemental act was made a law more olearly setting forth the secretary's powers and duties, as follows: "The secretary of the interior may make suitable rules and regulations to carry out the provisions of this act; and he may desig nate the a ectiou or tracts of land where timber may be out, and it shall not be law ful to cut or remove any timber except as may be prescribed by such rules and reun lations; but this act shall not operate to re peal the act of June 3, 1878, providing for the cutting of timber on mineral lands." In conformity with the above the com missioner of the general land office pro mulgated an order some time ago, giving directions as to how to proceed under the new law. These instructions set forth that the application must be published in some newspaper of general circulation, and it must give a description of the land it was desired to cut timber from, and the number of acres. But nothing was said in the in structions as to the life of the permit. In a little while the newspapers began to contain applications to cut timber off cer tain specified tracts, and then the feeling arose that the law as understood was one that would inure greatly to the benefit of speculators. This feeling was intensified by the fact that a majority of the applicants applied for permits coverino vast tracts of land, one man taking in six townships. In Montana it wsee argued that the law as in terpreted could not help but prove very detrimental to the interests of tse state rs a whole. It was realized that comparatively there is but a sparse amount of timber in the state; that when that on the mineral lands had been exhausted by the mining companies, those who had the timber per mite would not only have the general com niunity at their mercy, but the miners also. Another injustics lay in the fact that the big operators in any given section would receive the right to cat timber, end thus the general community would be at their mercy. The department, however, has been very chary in granting these permits. All that have been sent in to Washington from Montana have been referred to Special Agent Htailey for investigation and rep,-rt. In a large majority of cases it has been recommended by the agent that the appli cations be cut down 50 per cent. But one permit has been granted in this state and that to the Bonner company in Miasoula county. The applicants have all believed, as well as the general public, that all per mits, when secured, were perpetual, and it was this fact that caused the greatest dis satisfaction among the settlers. But a late decision of Secretary Noble removes this objection, and will result in reserving for the use of all the people the timber on the non-mineral lands. It not only fixes the life of the permit, but it also clearly de fines the amount of timber that may be cut within the year. The case in question involved a permit to cut from 23,000 acr 's of unsurveyed land in Meagher county, and was taken to the general land office by Messrs. Nelson & Settles. of this city. The name of the applicant is left blank for the reason that his pc' mission to publish has not been obtained; but the letter, with that omission, is as follows: DEPA.Rl'MENT OF ToE INTERaOR, G(ENERA, LAND OFFii:E, WAsHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 12, 1892. Messrs. Nelson & Settles, Helena, Mont., Gentlemen: Referring to your letter of Aug. 10. ,.91. transmitting ap:lication of - for a permit to cut timber from certain described non-mineral public lands ill Montana, you are advised that the secre tary of the interior has decided not to grant any permits to exist for a longer period of time than one year from date thereif; that not to exceed 50 per cent of the merclhanta ble tiube- on the land embraced in a par n.it shall le cut within the year: and that no parluit shall cover a larger arera of land than is required to furnish, during the life time of the permit, a sufficient quantity of timber for the capacity of a mill in supply iu the aibsolute reqluirements and n sc.ssi ties of the people dependent thereon in that vicinity.
