COEUR D'ALENE TROUBLE
A. M. Esler Says the Mine Owners Will Bring in Non-Union Mon. The Excellent Showing Being Made in the Upper Kootenal Min ing Country. Latest In the Copper Cmbinatioen Nego tlations-Butte & Boston Finan cial Statement. In an interview in Spokane the other day A. M. Ealer, of Helena, the manager of the Helena & Frisco mine, and a member of the Cceur d'Aleine Mine Owners association, in reply to a question as to whether the association would bring in new men to work in the mine, said it would. As to the wages that would be paid, Mr. Esler said: "Let me correct a million lies that have been circulating through the press and otherwise for the past few months relative to the wage question and which the Mine Owners' association has not deemed worthy of contradiction, in common with the great amount of balderdash which has been spread before the world. We have not at any time concluded to pay less than $3.50 per day for miners and $3 for carmen and shovelers, whion will only be a restoration of the situation prior to when we were com pelled to comply with the very foolish com mand to pay $3.50 per day for unskilled labor." "What was the motive of the mine own ers in withdrawing on April I the offer of wages which was precisely in accordance with this statement?" was asked. "Merely to enable them to announce that in the future they would not employ union men." "Will your association stand firm on that resolution?" "I believe that I know the temper of all of them well enough to say emphatically that they most assuredly will, for with that institution there, which seems to be governed by all of the worst elements in the country, we cannot have peace and prosperity, and their continued existence is not a necessity for the maintenance of that scale of wages or for the welfare of the miners, in sickness or distress." THE KOOTENAI COUNTRY. C. A. Freeman Talks Interestingly of That Section. C. A. Freem.an, talking of the Upper Kootenai country, says: "The three camps of Grouse mountain, Libby creek and Cal lahan creek are all looking well. There is a very large surface showing, and I believe a greater than in any other new camp in in the Pacifice northwest. On the Big Eight elaim on Callahan creek they have not less than 500 tons of ore in sight. There are two parallel ledges on the claim. one of three feet and one of fifteen inches in width. The claim is cut in two by a creek, and tunnels have been drifted on the ledge on both banks. One tunnel is in 200 feet and the other sixty-five. The former at tains a deoth of 150 feet, and the ore body is solid all the way. The ore runs about twenty-two ounces in silver and 45 per cent in lead. A mile and a half lower down the creek the Black Bear shows fifteen inches of good clean ore. "Grouse mountain has been frequently described. There is a big porphyry dyke traverses it and it is in this dyke that the two parallel ledges of ore are found. They are only a little way. apart. Some twenty five or more claims have been located upon them, of which the best known are the Great Northwest, Great Northern, Missoula and Twin. Thefirst named now has about twenty-five tons of ore on the damp and shows a good solid vein of ore about three and one-half feet in width. The ore runs about twenty ounces in silver and 35 per cent in lead. "The Missoula shows more clean ore than the first named. It is a kind of copper glance and runs pretty high in silver. On the Twin a tunnel has been run in parallel with the ledge about ninety-three feet. It will be run forty feet more before the lead is crosseut. The ore is a good steel galena. A good many men have been put to work lately in some of the prospects. Mr. Eaton has four men employed on the Mineral King." COPPER PRODUCTION. Some Data Relative to the Combination Being Formed. The first authentic data relative to the copper-combination negotiations which we have received, is from Henry R. Merton & Co., says the New York Mining Record. It would seem that the Americans offer to guarantee not to produce more than 125,215 tone during 4892, against last year's pro duction of 117.315 tons, providing the Eu ropean group will restrict five per cent un der its production of 80,300 tons., that of 1891. European interests in turn have sic nified thair willingness to some sort of an acreenment, but of precirely what nature does not appear. If the European produe ers be allowed an output of 84,877 tons, asnsuming that outside interests maintain the rate of production of1891, the maximum production asked by each negotiating party would be an in crease of 12,842 tons. 'I his matter is left unsettled, however, for the present. The terms of the agreement provosed, so far as published, are virtually to the effect that: "We will produce all the copper we can." Unless there is somethino in the plan pro posed which is calculated to arbitrarily con trol prices, the copper combination should such a combination comer to pass- will be without definite aim, ecou e or tan gible results it may be safely predicted. Olutte and ieostou. The management of this mining com pany, says the Boston Herald, will issue a finsncial statement with the circular call ing a meeting to authorize $'2.500.00(0 bonds. This issaue will add $1,510,000 net to ther capitolizction of the comurany, which is now $5.000,00( 0 stock and $1,00(0,000 mort tage bonds. Of new issue $1,(.0,000 will be set aside to retire the old issue at ma turity. This will mrrake the securities $7, 500.0)(), or considerably more, it is believnd, than twice the eash expendirtdlare upon the property. At 11 per sharre. the stock is ivewn a valuation of $2,200,I)0). Add $,50(0,000 ,onils at, say, RO, and a total valuation of $4,450,000 results, which is a large premium upon the cash outlay. Company have never made an aunual re port, but it is learned that the min ini profits have been $8(;1,000, which has gone into the plant, together with the monrey represented by the floating deb:t, $4;: ,0)0, and ,,553,000 reeeived trom the salh ol stooks and bonds. 'Ihis makes a total of $1,699,000, to which there should probably be further added the cost of the mines. Iron Mountain Electioln. At the annual meeting of the stockhold ers of the Iron Mountain Mining company, held Tuesday evening, 1. S. IHale. A. M. Ilolter, S. Word, Frank Hall, A. L. SmitLh, C. L. D)ahler and J.

OMeere of l)lvlleons Named in a Great Nerthera Clircular. , The first of a long expected series of oir uolars, bearing on the readjustment of the Great Northern railway's forces, in accord ance with that line's increased proportions, has just been received. The circular is signed by President Hill and General Man ager Mohler. It divides the road into two general divisions, with Minot, N. D., as the dividing point. General Superintendent Case is continued in authority as general superintendent of the eastern division, with his headquarters at St. Paul, and C. Shields general superintendent of the western divi sion, with headquarters at Kalispell until the road shall be completed and in opera tion to Sookane, when the headquarters will be removed to that place. A new position is created for Assistant General Superintendent Wakeman, and it is a handsome and well deserved promotion ot one of the most thoroughly equipped railroad men in the country to-day. He is made general superintendent of transpor tation, with headquarters at St. Paul. His jurisdiction will extend over the entire Great Northern system, east and west, in elading the eastern Minesota railway and he will report to the general manager's efflee. It oan be stated on good authority that this circular will be followed up in a few days by another ene announcing the appointment of Traffic Manager Shelby as general manager of the Pacific coast divi saone, and that other changes will be made in a short time.

FOUR HUNDRED COMING, Delegates to the .esbyterian Gsn. eral Assembly Will Stop Over Here To Be Entertained at the Broad water and at Private Residenoes. Sixteen Carloads to Arrive Next Saturday Night on Their Way to l'ortland. Oregon. At the meeting of the Board of Trade last night steps were taken to assist in the re ception and entertainment of the 400 dele gates to the Presbyterian general assembly to be held at Portland, Ore., next week. The delegates will arrive in Helena next Saturday at eight p. m., in two seetions of eight oars each. After a short stop at the Norshern Pacific depot the two sectiens will be taken to the Broadwater. Col. Broad water has offered the hospitalities of the famous resort and they may enjoy a re freshing bath in the natatorium after their long railroad journey. A committee will leave Helena on Saturday to meet the dele gates as .Logan. It consists of E. W. Knight, Gov. Tools, Rev. T'. V. Moore, C. Hedges, -F. W. Ellis and several others not yet named. Arrangements have been made to entertain the visitors at a number of private residences and the hotels. Many of the delegates have personal friends in Helena. The committee which will meet the delegates at Logan will assign such as desire to the residences and hotels. It is probable that quite a number will not care to leave the Pullmans except to take a short drive about the city after their arrival and on the day following to attend divine services. No formal re ception will be given the delegates, as the hour of their arrival would make it incon venient to the visitors as well as the citi zens, and the religious convictions of the delegates would stand in the way of any attempt to give up the Sabbath to such a demonstration. The board decided that nothing much could be done except in a quiet way to entertain the visitors. It was thought at first that the delegates would remain over a part of next Monday, but the train is scheduled to reach Portland on Wednesday, which makes it necessary to leave Helena at 1 e.m. next Monday. A num ber of private carriages have been placed at the disposal of the reception committee. The electric lines have made a reduced rate from the Broldwater to the city. Special rates have also been made by The HRlena. It was principally through the efforts of Rev. T. V. Moore that the delegates were induced to stop over at Helena and spend ,Sunday. R. H. Kleinschmidt called attention to the change of time on the Northern Pacific railroad and the abandonment of the ao commodation train between Helena and Missnula. The board did nothing about the matter except to appoint Mr. Klein sahmidt, GCo. E. Boos and L. A. Walker, to investigate and report how the change in time and the abandonment of the train would affect Helena. Mr. Walker said it was a popular train to Helena and Butte people, more so than the regular train. H. B. Palmer, W. E. Cox and E. W. Knight were appointed to draw up suitable resolutions of thanks to Messrs. Broad water, Lyman and Harrison for their ef forts in securing the location of a military lost at Helena. The resolutions are to be submitted to the executive committee and by it presented to the gentlemen namcad. A letter was read from the Missoula board of trade saving that the boa d would act upon the request of the Helena board that both cities unite in securing the pro posed railroad to the Flathead country. Secretary Eddy was instructed to write to the Nicaragua canal convention and say that the board will not appoint two dele gates to the convention which meets at St. Louis June 2, and to express the sympathy of the board with the objects of the con vention. Novelty China Co. of Minneapolis is repre sented at The Helena for a week or ten days with a full line of hand decorated china. Re ception Wednesday afternoon and evening, Mlay 11.
