Nothing in it Which Need Alarm
the People of Butte
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.
Drawn From the Outpat ef the De Lamar p'
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

Appeal of the Federation of Labor for
Home Rule.
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.
A Gross Business of Over a Million in Ten
The first annual report of the Northwest
Thompson-Houston Electric company
covers the period from June 1, 1891, to
March 19, 1892, and in that period the com
pany did a gross business of $1,934,000.
What the net was it would take an expert
to discover from anything that appears in
the report, say the Engineering and Mining
News. The company operates under a
Thomeon-Houston license in Washington,
Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, North
Dakota. South Dakota, Minnesota and
Northern Wisconsin. The main office is at
St. Paul, with branches at Portland. Ore.,
ana Helena, Mont. Two departments are
in their infancy, the supplying of electrical
apparatus for mining work and long dis
tance transmission of power. The com
pany paid dividends of two per cent on the
preferred stock Dec. 15, 1891, and March 15,
1892, and two per cent on the common
Jan. 15, 1892, with the same declared pay
able April 15. The report says: "There is
every reason to believe that dividends on
both preferred and common stock will be
continued at their present rate."
