Great Fslls Turning Out
Copper Matte
Strthe ta a fSadego Counts Mine That
Demeantrates the Permsnence of the
Aines of That eocttem.
Hon. T. B. DeLamar, formerly the sole
owner of the DeLamar mines in southern
Idaho, was' in Boise City the other day,
having just returned from a visit to-the
mines. He was greatly pleased at the show
ing being made, and said' that during the
last thirty days the comany has opened
three new veins. One of these is eleven
feet wide and runs $70; the second is eight
feet wide and runs $7,, while the third has
been out into six feet so far and rune $68.
This gives twenty-five feet of new ore of an
average value of $70 per ton, half the vaine
being in gold and half in silver. These
strikes are at a depth of 500 feet. The out
put for the past month has been $91,000, of
which $16,000 was in shipping ore. The
ore reserves, which have just been meas
ured up and valued at the close of the first
year of the new arrangement, are more
than double what they were at the begin
ning of the year, without including any
part of the new strikes referred to. More
than 20,000 tone of ore has been milled dur
ing the year, while more than $180,000 has
been realized from ore shipped. Capt. De
Lamar estimates that the dividend for the
month of April will be about $120,000.
THE FIRST COPPER MATTE.
The Boston &AMontana Refinery at Great
Falls at Work.
The great Boston & Montana plant be
gan turning out copper matte Friday,
says the Great Falls Tribune, and from
now on the daily output of this metal will
be a regular occurrence. The first run
amounted to about six tons, a small frao
tion of the capacity of the plant when run
ning full blast. Only one of the eight
furnaces is used at present, as this is con
sidered more of a test than anything else.
When all of the furnaces are in use, which
will be very soon, the smelter will handle
about 400 tons of concentrates per day of
twenty-four hours. Each of the furnaces
will treat from forty to fifty tons of ore
per day. When the facilities for shipping
ore here from Butte are better the concen
trator and smelter will Le run at full blast
and the great plant can then be considered
one of the permanent industries of the
town.
This is the only smelter in the country,
so far as known, which uses artificial gas
for smelting. In a certain sense it is an ex
periment and until the feasibility of such a
fuel is well established the company do not
feel like running the plant to its fullest
capacity. The first run has proved very
satisfactory and from all accounts it is safe
to say the system will not be abandoned.
There is a copper plant in Natroona, Pa.,
which is run by natural gas and as that is a
success there seems to be nothing in the
way of using artificial gas. The concen
trator is handling about five care of ore a
day, or about one-fourth of its regular
capacity. Every piece of machinery in the
immense concern works like a charm from
the rook crushers to the vanners.
STIIKE IN THE NOBLE.
Good News From a Madison County Mine,
Near Sheridan.
Fred W. Day tells the Madisonian that
Superintendent Noble has tapped the lead
in the mine of that name, near Sheridan.
The lead shows five feet eight inches of
solid ore, fully thirty inches being high
grade, and the rest of it good milling ore.
Mr. Day says this development on the
Noble is not only important to the fortun
ate and plucky owners, but to all the mine
owners in that vicinity and every mining
and business interest in Madison county,
as it demonstrates that the mines of that
county extend down into the earth, and
bursts the bubble that the quartz in that
section all lies on the surtace, and that
there would never be such a thing as deep
mining known there. The tunnel cuts the
Noble vein at least 1,200 feet below the
deepest openings heretofore made on the
mine. From the face of the tunnel, drifts
will be driven along the vein each way.
The company owns 6,000 feet along it, and
it is believed the ore body extends the en
tire length.
Prof. Day also says that the recent strike
on the Toledo mine is a very important one;
that they have a chute seven feet wide of
more than $110 ore, and that the McGranor
mines, all in the same vicinity as the Noble,
are looking better than ever. Certainly
the people of Madison county have cause
for rejoicing, as the outlook for prosperous
times is bright all aloLg the line.
TO STA5T' TtIl MILL.
Fine & Pankey Getting Ready to WVork
Ore From the Raston.
Messrs. Fine & Pankey have secured a
lease of the New York/ Montana mill, and
will at once proceed to change it from a
dry to wet crushing and add concentrating
machinery, says the Madisonian. About
forty days will be required to complete the
work and get the mill in shape to start up.
In the meantime work will be continued on
the mines with renewed vigor. On the
rarston they are diviln the three tunnels.
all of which are in oae. 'Ihey are in on
No. 1 now about 170 feet, and exiect to
have to run eighty or 100 feet further be
fo; e it reaches the rich chute on which they
are running in Nos. I and 2, but the foce of
No. 1 is in live feet of ore, though of rather
low grade, still of snflicient value to pay the
expense of extraction and reduction.
They are not making an effort to extract
ore from the ]aston at present, but
are driving the tunnels ahead as fast as
three eight-hour shifts can r.ush them, and
already have an immense amount of hirh
grade ore blocked out, which vill be more
than doubled by the time the mill is ready
to start up, when thease will be eauflicient in
~mig to keep it constantly running for
many months. On the Utah Northern,
which Mesars. line & Fankey are also
operating, they have a four-foot vein of
splendid ore, one streak which is about
three and a half inches in width, assays
away up in the thousands in silver and gold.
Taking these two properties together, we
doubt if their equal in richness, extent, and
true dssure character are to be found in the
state, and now that the fortunate owners
have procsmed a means of reducing their
ores at home, their profits from working
them will be simply immense.

Two Hundred aen VWaitlng for the Snow
to Disappear.
Reports from the K(aslo-tllooan country,
in the' British Iootenai, are to the effect
that the snow is all gone, except in spots,
as far up Kaslo creek as the sooth fork, a
distance of six miles. James Startsman,
writing to a friend at SEpokane, says about
that, however, the snow is still two to three
feet deep and only a few adventurous
miners, among whom was W. E. A. BIelteian
berg, had ventured into the Blesan eountry
on snowshoes. A few parties are aleso
camping at Bear and Fish lakes on the
divide. Iteports from Slocan are to the
ffeet that there are about 200 men at the
mouth of Carpenter creek waiting for the
snow to go off. Numerous snowelides have
