MEETING OF THE EXPERTS
Montana Properties Discussed by the Mining Engineers at Their Session in Baltimore. George F. Kuna Gives lil Latest Opinion on Montana Sap phires and Diamonds. llhat the "Flannel Shirt Expert" Did for the Drum Lummean-James D. Hague's Big Fee. At the meetiag of American mining engi neers in Baltimore reeently, some of the discussions and reports wore of particular interest to Montana. Geo. F. Kunz, the Tiffany expert, who has lost no opportunity for the last year to belittle the Montana sapphires, though a few years ago he pro nounced them equal to any known, was asked about them at the meeting, and said: The Montana sapphires are beautiful and interesting as curious, but I don't think they are of the color the public wants. The standard colors in sapphires for popular use are blue cr rod, and such are not found in the placer ground on the Missouri, near Helena. A company to work the bar has been stocked at $2,000,000.. The interested par ties took over to England 30,000 carats of Montana sapphires, but they didn't put any of them on the market. Diamonds are too common. People of taste and of wealth demand something which shall scintilate and which everybody cannot get. Ameri cans are now buying diamonds at the rate of $13,000,000 a year, and there are in the world about $1,000,000,000 worth of dia monds. But there are diamonds and dia monds. A stone of the first water is still a rarity and of this class there are only about eight per cent of the whole amount." l3peakinu of the precious stones found in this country, Dr. Kunz said the garnets which come from the Navajo nation in New Mexico and Arizona are the most I notable. These garnets are called rubies and are of the finust in the world. "The Montana precious stones are interesting, i but comparatively of no value in the mar ket." c The meeting was presented with some statistics on great feats of mininm engi neering, a few of which are interesting to Montanains. One instance relates to r Leadville and the work of S. F. Emmons. t The mining city of the clouds thought it had its day. The mines were being worked d out one after another and abandoned. Vein after vein had been followed to what seemed to be the end. The city's popula tion and business were growing smaller. 0 Emmons went to Leadvrille. Ie had maps 0 prepared showing the workings of the P mines, the veins of ore and the various strata of rocks. 'These were the given . quantities of the problem. Emmons ti studied them and arrived at the conclusion h that a great fault had occurred in the early days when the mountains curled up. He fi nointed where hoe thought the veins should 1 be recovered. The miners dug and found n the ore bodies again, and the second Lead ville became greater than the first had n been. The Drum Lummon. near Helena, said h another engineer, is one of the greatest mines of the present day. Itis owned by a company in which Englishmen are1 largely interested. At one time in its his tory, years ago, the Drum Lunamon seemed to have fulfilled its destiny. The vein came to an end. Repeated trials to recover it all failed. The managers, almost in 1 despair. sent for Clayton, "the flannel shirt ' expert," the self-educated mining engineer. f Clayton studied the mine, located the fault, ordered a crosscut at that particular point and recovered the vein. p There have been great fees paid to some S mining engineers for their opinions on ti mines. One of the reports made at the o meeting says that it is tradition that James D. Hague received $25,000 for his examina- tl tion of the Anaconda mine. A queer his- D tory the Anaconda has had. The mining ei engineers recalled this when they visited a the great reduction works at Balimore, where the Anaconda product goes to be li treated and burned into sulphate of copper it and pure copper. In the early days of S Montana mining the gold hunters panned j gravel and worked out yellow nuggets on the location of the Anaconda. mine. Another generation of treasure d seekers came along and searched for d silver, going down some distance and , getting enough to keep them encouraged. As they followed the silver veins they came to copper, and the richest mine in the w world was developed. There is some gold h and silver in the Anaconda product which S reaches Baltimore. but tiie great value is in c the cooper. But what of the mining engi- b neer who gets $25,000 for his report on the Anaconda when it was a doubtful proposi- n tion. Did he earn his fee, as big as six I nmonths' salary of the president of the h U;nited States? Well, hardly. He reported adversely on the Anaconda. o One of the strangest freaks in mining engineeriirr was developed in connection u with the farmous Ontario mino at Park City, Utah. This is new among the greatest pro ducers in the country. At a time in its history the esastern vein ran out. It seemed as if the end of that mine had been reached. ' he people interested, among whom were the Wrlker Brothers, of S8alt Lake, spent $1,0100,000 in tryiung to find the F enastern conrbinuaton of the vein.

PA,,nMEi, 10 Edwardt Street, ONE LIGHI COMPANY IOW The Citizens Is Now a 'Portion of the Helena's Already Exten. slve System. April 1 There Will Be a Reduc tion in Price to Private Parties and the City. Foreign Syndleate Inspecting the MIts souri for the Purpose of Utllaiug A. Now Wasted Power. The most important consolidation of In terests that has ocoured in Helena since the water companies were merged, wasconsum. mated Saturday last. By it the rights, plant and franchises of the Citizens Electric Light company, became the property of the Helena Electric dompatly. This makes the entire light system of this city the property of the same gentlemen, both the electric and gas companies being owned and man aged by the same people, The new deal takes offect to-day, but for a little while the plant of the Citizens company will be operated. This will only continue, how ever, until new machinery arranged for in the consolidation arrives. This will be placed in the Helena Co.'s power house near the Montana Central depot. The electric plant of the street car company, owned by the same gentlemen. will also be removed this summer to the Montana Cen tral power house, and the company will have altogether 1,000 horse power. No city in the northwest to-day has a better elec tric lighting system than Helena. and it has been so planned as to be able not only to keep up with the growth of the city but a little ahead of it, As arule it has been the experience that when one corporation con trols the light or water of a city, especially when the opposition has been taken in prices to consumers immediately take a jump. But in 'this Instance the reverse will be the case, say the officers of the com pany. As they are. all men whose word can be depended nuon. consumers may congrat ulate themselves that they "are in, the grasp of a monopoly." One of thesofficers, talking of the consolidation yesterday, said: "By the deal the expe.sea under which the two companies have been operating will be considerably reduced. Or:r power house is so located that we are under the minimum of expense in handling our basiness, and when we move the Citizens' plant, we will be able to operate the two with but slightly increased cost over what one plant has been costing. We know this can be done, and on the first of April there will be a re duction in the price of lights, not only to private consumers, but to the city as well. 'Ihere are about a dozen individuals in this city who, by reason of the competition be tween the two companies, have been getting their lights at less than cost; these people will have to pay more under the new deal, but as I said before, after April 1 both pri vate consumers and the city will pay less. We intend not only to furnish the best ser vice between St. Paul and Seattle, but lights in Helena will cost less than in any other city in Montana. There will be no throat cutting, as in the past. but the con solidated company will be run in such a way as to merit the patronage of the pub lic and at the same time pay the stock holdeis a fair interest on their investment. We have every facility for doing the busi ness economically, and we fully recognize the fact that in order to retain the con fidence of the public, as well as its good will, we must divide the profits with the consumers. We'do not expect to make a big thing out of the business, and if any one believes at any time we are, we will be quite willing to have our books examined." TO USE THE POWER. A New Plan Under Consideration to Utilize the Missouri River. For two or three years a syndicate of Helena gentlemen has been considering the advisability of putting in a dam in the Missouri river near Stnbb's Ferry. The project contemplated the erection at the dam of a great electrical plant, and con ducting the power into Helena, to be used in manufacturing and other establishments. Electrical experts and engineers have re ported favorably on the project, and they have also shown that by putting in a sys tem of looks in connection with the dam, the Missouri. not now navigable in that vicinity, could be made so, the dam thus serving two purposes. But the enterprise has dragged along, and were it not for the fact that some opposition has been devel oped, it would probably have been num bered among the things that were. This is not because it is not feasible, and would not be a good investment, but simply be cause those who had acquired certain rights did not seem anxious to make use of them. The great advances being made in elec trical science, however, and the certain knowledge that it is only a few years when the railroads will be operated by electrical power, as well as factories. workshops and manufactories generally has attracted the attention of capitalists outside of Montana to the possibilities furnished by the use of the power of the Missouri river. The Mis souri in the vicinity of Helena is not the only point along that river furnishing a fine site for the location of an im mense power plant. It was learned yester day that a syndicate composed of Chicago and English capitalists, the members of which are largely interested in the electri cal business, have had engineers examining the Missouri in Montana, with the result that three points nlonu that stream be tween Helena and Gallatin City have been suggested as feasible places for the build ink of dams and the location of plants. One of them is near 'Toston. At this point it is alleged that the natural formation is such as to offer excellent inducements for putting in a dam. Townsend bring a cen tral point in that section, it is estimated that at least 10,000 horse-power can be de livered there. It is the center of a rich agricultural commrunity, anod thse inter esnted believe that certiain luanu factories could be established there anld couuncted with less expense than it ally othui pointin this vicinlit.. By putting in lockl it is con tended that the Missouri, now not naviga ble, can be mnado so.
