Nothing in it Which Need Alarm the People of Butte City. Men In the Mines Only Lost One Shift and Everything Is Now O. K A C(orreetion From Mr. Pakeman Con earning a Statement About the De Lamar Mines. An Inter Mountain special from Ana soida says: The story of the Anaeonda situation is a very simple one and involves nothing that need alarm the most excitable resident of Butte. On Saturday Mr. Daly received a letter from Mr. Haggin, dated ave days previously, stating in effect that copper was accumulating in the eastern market and that the interest of the pro duoers and all connected with them re quired a curtailment of the supply, and in structing Mr. Daly to reduce the product to some extent. The letter arrived on Sat urday night too late to carry out the in strustions it contained, and the Saturday night shift worked as usual. On Sunday the men at the upper works were laid off. They numbered only 200, because the upper works have not been running full blast all winter, and were not producing muck capper, and, besides, it was the in tention to transfer some of the discharged men to the lower works. About the same number of men were laid of at the mines, making 400 in all, or less than one-sixth of total working forse. Mr. Haggin was advised of this action on the part of the local management by tele graph, but it seems that in the week subse quent to the sending of Mr. Haggiu's letter the market had shown unexpected strength, perhaps owing to the Butte & Boston fire or the placing of some large orders with the manufactures, and that it was no longer deemed necessary to reduce production to preserve the market. Thas in response to the telegram stating that the upper works had been closed. Mr. Haggin telegraphed, countermand ing his former instructions. This was construed to mean that the situation had changed, and orders were at at once issued to resume operations. The men lost only one shift, that of Sun day. and on Tuesday everything was booming as before. These are simple facts which the Inter Mountain has gained from re liable sources. The people are contented and business is good. It is certain that no man is better pleased to see the works run ning than Mr, Daly himself, beoanse, aside from his interest in the general prosperity of Butte and Anaconda, and his desire to see labor employed, he has a pecuniary in terest in the running of the works. There is not the slightest indication at present of a close down of any sort, and all stories to the contrary may be set down as inventions pure and simple. AN OBJEOT LESSON. a$ Drawn From the Outpat ef the De Lamar p' Mine. In a resent issue of the Financial News, Ji of London, is printed a letter from the En- al glish secretary, Mr. Charles Pakeman, of e' the De Lamar Mining company, Idaho, un- a der date of Marsh 30, 1892, with the object of correcting a statement in the News to the offect that the property in question is "a silver mine." Mr. Pakeman gives an exhibit of the property's product for the t ten months ending February of this year, L as follows: Per cent. May 1. 1891, to Feb. 29, 1892b gold..........................$210.,525 49.80 May 1, 1891, to Feb. 29. 1891. sil- co ver........ .............. 249,798 50.40 a Total........................ $460.323 100 is This relates to the gold produced by the a, De Lamar, derived from ore reduced at its f, own mill besides which the mine yields a d rich silver ere sold to smelters, flve per cent of the product of which is also gold, y This, however, is but one of the instances of the so-called silver mines through the exploitation of which is derived a material d part of the gold that this country yields. ihe fact is, moreover, that of the aggregate output of the Consolidated Virginia and California, between the discovery in 1873 and to the end of 1879 to the aggregate a amount of $109.061,029, more than $50,790,- n 453, or 463 per cent was gold; a percentage n of gold that has not been decreased in the later output of the two properties; for, in v 1889, of a total output from the mines of 1l the Comutook of $5.997,160, according to a the mint bureau, $2,301,000 was in gold. d The Murray Placers. At Murray placer work is well under way. In referring to this class of mining there, a it is always understood that the Cceur d d'Alene Gold Mining company, under the management of Sid Mills, stands at the head. In fact, far in advance of any other placer operations in North Idaho. He pushes work every day and night in each year, when not so cold as to form ice in his sluice boxes, with two giants and two lines of pipes for hydraulic work. His present operations are on Fancy gulch, a tributary of Eagle creek, three miles northwest of c the town of Murray. Every side gulch above and below lHur ray, where water in sufficient quantity can be had for hydrrulic operations, is being worked. The ochre colored water dis charged into Pritchard creek, carrying earthy matter and oxide of iron, giving it t this unnatural color, goes into the North X Fork of the Cwur d'Alene river, and these 1 coloring ingredients are not precipitated until they mingle with the leaden colored waters discharged by the South Fork, sev enty-five to one hundred miles down its winding channel. Big Gold Bars. The report that the bar of gold recently shipped from Harqua Bela was the largest ever made is disputed by the Mining and Scientific Press, which says that several larger bars have been made. The Spring Valley gold mine, Cherokee Flat, Butte county, California, made one valued at $90.000 some years ago. One was made at Hlelena a few years since valued at $100, 000. The biggest one ever made was that of the North Bloomfield gravel mine, Nevada county, California, in 1892. It weighed 511.. pounds troy, and its value was $114,000. This was from a single clean-no of the North Bloomfield mine, which that year yielded $1,000,000 in gold. Mines at the World's Fair. The "mines and mining" department of the World's Columbian exposition at Chi cago will have the ecolusive use of a build ing measuring 350 by 700 feet, with a floor space of almost nine acres. Mr. Skiff, the chief of the department, is already assured that the building will contain in 1803 "in comparably the largest array and most complete and most instructive evidence of the mineral wealth and progress of the mining industry ever collected or at tempted."

Naw Yoax, April 20.-The appeal of the National Federation of Labor of America to the friends of home rule for- Ireland has been issued in part. Is runs thus: "The tory government, the implasable edemy of the Irish people, has been driven finally to bay. Advices from the other side point in evitably to an early dissolution of parlia ment. The general election following will decide the home rule question for our gen eration if not forever. Friends of Ireland in America, will you aid the Irish people now? Will you organize at once and give the necessary material for their suppert without which a battle cannot be won? The tory party has arranged to contest every seat in Ireland, to impose new burdens on our people, knowing their poverty. Heavy statutory fees must be deposited when the nominations are made. The necessary funds should be in our treasurer's hands before the dissolution of parliament, in order to be available at once. The hour for a final effort is upon us." The appeal is signed by Thomas A. Em mett, president. It requests that contribu tions be sent to the treasurer, Eugene Kelly. 22 Cooper Union. THOMSON-HOUSTON ELEICTRIC CO.
