District in Park County of Great Promlse. The Big Timber Pioneer, in an extended ,etloe of the Boulder mining camp, situated about fifty miles south of Big Timber, says that gold was first discovered in the district n 1872, No locations were made, however, a it was then a part of the great Crow reserve. In 1879 the first locations were made. but little work was done, the loca tors being content to do their assessment work each year and wait for the coming of 'others In 1889 new life was infused in the camp by the advent of men and capital. The proposition offered by the Boulder camp is not a hard one, its ores are gold, free milling and as no expensive smelters or railroads are required to make the mines paying ones, it is essentially a poor man's camp. Werk has been prosecuted vigor ously on many of the mines during the ,winter months, with the result that many of them show ahigh state of development. Electricity will form an important part in ,the bringing forth of the treasures of this i.asp, an electric company having been formed by Nebraska capitalists for the pr pose of furnishing all motive power The Independence was the first mine to be developed and opened up in the camp. The main shaft is now down eighty feet from which two levels have been run a die tense of fifty feet in solid ore. One tunnel his been run a distance of 287 feet opening up an eighteen-rseh body of fine ore. Work Is alse being pushed on two other tunnels with the result that a large amount of ore is already on the dump. '1 he ore assays on an average of $65 per ton and that it pays to mine it is evinced by the ac complishments of their one stamp mill which, daring three runs made last sum mer, pounded out amalgam at the rate of $90 per day. The Poorman has a double compartment shaft. down eighty feet, two large bodies of ore being encountered, assays from one averaging $0 to the ton, the other going into the thousands.

SHE MAY BE ONE OF ThEN Capture of the Supposed Leader of the Gang of Desperate Footpada. A. Man Named Clonley Caught in Great Fsall, to Be Brought Hera Possibillty That Re Was Conneeted With the Robbery and Marder of the Swede. Swansea. It will be remembered that when the three footpads who esoaped from the police on Monday, the 16th inst., were doing up the town, they were aceempanied by a fourth mae--a tall fellow. This man was with them when they robbed another at an up-town restaurant, and he is believed to have been the leader of the gang which fatally assaulted the unfortunate Swede near the gas works. Early on the Sunday night that the Swede was assaulted this fourth man, who is believed to have been the chief of the gang, was up tows without a cent in his pocket, it is said. After mid night he was flush of money. When the up town robbery ocearred the brutal rob bery of John Swanson near the gaa house was not known to the police. Policeman Scharreabroich had looated three of the men in the Atlantio beer hall and had gone up Main street to get Police man Traoey to help arrest them. Not fnd ing Tracey he started back, determined to make the arrest with Policeman Carlson's help. Passing the Cosmopolitan hotel he saw this fourth man, but decided to get the others first and piok up the leader on the way to the city jail. The arrest was made, but, it will be remembered, one of them shot Scharrenbroich at Main street and Broadway, and all got away. The leader took flight at the same time and dissp peared. Henry Wolfe, barkeeper at the Atlantic beer hall, had seen all four of the men and had served them with drinks over the bar. A few days ago he had occasion to go to Neihart and stopped over at Great Falls. While there he saw the man whoisbe. lieved to have been the leader of the gans of footpads. He hastened back to Helena and informed Marshal Galvin of what he r had found out. The city marshal imme diately telegraphed to Great Falls asking the authorities there to arrest and hold the man, which was done. Marshal Galvin C went down to the Falls last night and will ! return with his prisoner this afternoon. The man's name is gived as Conley, and his capture is regarded as important. While he was not with the gang when Soharren- I broich was shot, he had been with them at all other times while in the city, and is be lieved to have taken part in the uptown . robbery and the beating of Swanson at the gas house. At any rate Marshal Galvin took with him to Great Falls a warrant for the arrest of Conley on the eharge of com plicity in the murder of Swanson. While it looks like it might be hard to prove this on him, there is said to be plenty of circumstantial evidence to connect him with the affair. It is said that a gang of men answering the descriptions of those wanted were seen at Wickes a few days be fore the murder. They were there when Swanson and the man who was robbed up town drew their pay on Saturday, May 14. They appeared to be hard up and one of them offered to sell his watch. The party 'I to whom he made the offer did not care for the watch, but wanted to buy a revolver which one of the men had. The fellow re fused to sell, remarking "I need that in my business." It is singular that the same men should turn up in Helena at the same time with the workmen from Wickes, and that the Wickes people should have been selected as the victims of the robbers. The Oapture of the man Conley may help to clear up the matter, and possibly lead to the arrest of the other three man.
