Lying about six miles south of Placer is the East Paoifio mine, owned by Winstgn Broa., of Minneapolis, and worked under the local management of W. S. Dodge as superintedent, Dan Peterson as foreman, and P. Peterson as shift-boss, says the Boulder Age. The development work con sists of three tunnels, No. 1 1,600 feet long. No. 2 1.900 feet long and No. 3 1,700 long; two drifts, one 050 feet and one 1,000 feet; one winae seventy feet deep; two shafts, one 400 feet deep and one 200 feet deep. They employ about seventy-five man at present and have shipped about 8,000 tons of ore from the mine, which netted about $1,000 per car, and are finding some galena ore whioh runs as high as $1,800 per ton in gold. This is a bonanza of a little mine and a good dividend payer. Adjoining the East Pacifo on the west is the Little Giant, Monitor and Baltimore lodes, owned by Mr. Andrew Stewart. Mr. Stewart is working hard to develop these prospects into paying mines. He has a shaft fifty feet deep on the Little Giant and from two to four inches of fine ore in the bottom of the shaft, and wherever he has made an opening he has found good ore, the same in character as the East Pa- 1 cifi ore. Lying east of the East Pacific is the Spo kane, Bismark, Frelberg, and Extension, 1 owned by Louis Ziekler. The Freiberg has three tunnels and a shaft; some ore taken out of the shaft run over $200 per ton. In the tunnel where they are at work at pre sent there is about ten inches of very good I looking gold ore in the oxidized iron form which Mr. Ziekler says will run about $50 per ton in gold.' This tunnel is in 340 feet. He has taken out some ore in this tunnel which runs $800 a ton in gold. The float on the Bismark runs from $25 to $50 per ton. The Spokane is located on the same hill as the East Pacific, and has a large showing on the surface of oxidized iron, eight feet I thick. Mr. Ziekler thinks this will be the boss mine in this part of the country as soon as he can get it developed enough to show it up. The Sunrise lode, owned by J. W. Rogers, of Placer, and under lease and bond at oresent to Helena parties, lies a half mile f south of the East Pacific. There are two tunnels on this claim, one 230 feet, from a which he has taken some very rich ore. Be low this is the second tunnel which is 350 e feet long, with about two feet of ore in the face. Mr. Rodgers says he has shoots of ore that were six feet thick in driaing in d this tunnel and at one time was offered $20.000 in cash for the property. About one mile sonth of here Dave Con non is working on the Estray Horse. He F has a shaft thirty-five feet deep with ore v from the grass roots, and about four inches of ore in the bottom of the shaft, and one B tunnel 400 feet long. The hillside is cov- P ered with float that will average $60 a ton and has dug out and shipped eight and a Bl healf to.2 of this float tat inns $60 per ton. 8 John Tool and Pat Gallagher have dis- ti discovered a ledge of gaidna cropping out of the ground about feet in thickness es on Beaver creek, about two and one-half y miles southwest of the East Pacific mine. V, They brought in come blocks of galena which were very rich, and if they have a foot of such ore they have a bonanza. Messrs. Foster and Benjamin and part mere have about twenty-five men at work on their big iron mine above Elkhorn. ']hey have a contract for 1,000 tons of the ore for A the East Helena smelter, and they expect C to supply that and other smelters with 1,000 le tons a month. pm The trial at the Boulder smelter the past week has been very satisfactory. The fires vi were withdrawn last night and in the pres- A. ence of all the officers the test of the ran is was made. The results a e far better than be were expected and after a few more chances are made the smelter will start up again. Beck Bartean and partners have four men at work on the Pilgrim's Progress, a few miles above Elkhorn. The property is A a blanket lead and it has been stripped a distance of 150 feet, showing from two to 11 six inches of ore which will run from 400 to 1,000 ounces of silver to the ton. About 150 t tons of this ore will be taken out in the 1 next month and shipped to eastern smel- J ters. The ore has to be packed on horses for about a mile to Foster and Benjamin's C camp, where it is loaded on wagons and hauled to the railroad at Elkhorn. a WVASTE DUMPS OF BUTTE. They Give Home Idea ot the Extent of the Mnling Operations. The vast waste dumps of this district, for such a comparatively new mining country, are sources of wonderment to visitors fro i abroad, says the Butte Inter-Mountain. It is an easy matter to make a visitor believe that in the underground workings of the Lexington mine there are some tuurteen miles of tunnels and drifts, after be has viewed the enormous quantity of waste on the dump. It represents an extraordinary expenditure of wealth and rmuscle, and in most mines the dumps do not represent the many tons of waste which are used uI tilling up the interior workings of the mines. Hundreds of tons are daily used in the Ana conda mine in filling in places to make the workings more secure. In conversation a few days ago with an old miner who has had a varied experience of over half a century in different moining districts he incidentally mentioned a pecu liarity of these dumps. In the taking out of waste a large percentage of ore necessa rily accompanies it, and he said that if, after the lapse of fifty or sixty years, a drift was inn into the dump, the ore would be found to have stratified and fomted it self into a ledge similar in every way to a natural ledge encountered in the earth. A piece of iron left in the dump will, after a time, attract to itself particles of nuInerral, and if removed, after being buried for ten years, will be found to be several times its natural size.

Edward Mueller is working the Buffalo aed employs two shifts of men. 11 is said that the average net yield of this property dur nga the past few weeks has been 7700 peri day. Regular shipments of ore which av erages eighty ounces in silver to the ton are made to Butte and Omaha. The Nancy mnle is operated by Porter and Deacon, of Butte. 'Ihe ledge on this property is quite narrow, but tie assays made run very highin silver and gold. '1 he lowest returns received were seventy e.cetl and the highest 1.:30 to the ton. A shaft I seventy feet in depth is on this property. Leavitt and Ward are lensing on the Watseka and are only engaged in surface work. A whim hoist is being operated on the property and the returns are said to be very satisfactory to the leasers. Bartine and company are wo: king senme properties about two miles from the Wat seko and are prodeuing some very fine sil ver and lead ores. Ryan and Malloy are working an adjoin iag claim and have erected a whim and hoist on the property, from which a fair q allty of ore is being obtained. hAIs 1e doa aot by any mesas include the puaing mines of this district.

A WORTOTUN IN ONt LUMP. Tee Much Geld In OGe Chunk for Thieves to Teekle. Frontier hibhwaymen would have had a hard time wrestling with a bit of gold which arrived here by Wells. Fargo & company's express a few days age, says the San Franoisco Examiner. It esme from the celebrated HarqaaHala mine, and was con signed to J. HuRobbard and J. B. Bowers, the owners, for coinage at the United States mint. When the employes of the mint took a look at it they were astonished. The reason was that It was the biggest lump of gold that they had had the unhappiness to come in contact with, seeing that it was in one respect like many others, being not their own. It was of a somewhat conical shape, and seemed to have been emptied out of a ai rantita lasg pot. It did not belie its looks for that was theway it had been shaped. It was the product of forty-five days'. run at the Harqua Hlia, and the tremendous bulk weighed 3,7)~' rounds avoirdupole and was stated to be of the value of $.' 000. T'h thoughtful representatives of the owners of the big nugget telesraphed from point to point as they progressed with it from the mine, sixty miles southwest of Phlanix, and announced when it should ar rive at the next station. This was in order to forestall any ambitious men with guns; for, tlhough aspiring highwaymen were thus kept exactly posted as to when the gold t might be expected, it also posted the people in each town. '1 he nugget was too big for any party of bandits to carry off intact and secrete, and had they stopped the caravan on the way to the railroad they would have only had time to chisel off $1,000 or so till the pack of bloouhounde which the prison officials at f Phoenix keep would have been on their 1, trail. Nobody molested it, therefore, and it reached here safely The ponderous yel- ! low cone has attracted much attention. One of the owners.

SA Search Party Gone to Run )oewn a 3s.. port That It Had Beran Ioned. a William Trowbridge and another atr went oat yesterday to nn down a repent that the body of the missing John MoPhee had been or would be founa boat fourteen miles from whre be waulast aen the latter artl of Septemlber, 881. It supea.r that a temale spiritualiet *et to Mrs. Aliase M Phoe at her home on Raleigh street, in this city, and told her where the thought the body of the lady's mising hanand wee, Mr. McPhee, who has been ander a svere mental strain for the past ten months, turned the matter over to her aequalat anees, who determined to look it up and satisfety her about it, John MePhee has been mising slnse one Wednesday morning in eFteomber, when he left Rimini to, go over the range to the Grand Republio mine, of which he wee the treasurer. His visit to the mini wee purely a business one, and as the weather was eIear, he took the trail from Rimini to croes the rance to the head of the Little Black foot. He was partially acquainted with the trail, though he had never been over it alone, but as it was a perfectly clear road in open weather, he started without any misrgvinag as to being able to reach hiades tination in safety. On that Wednesday, it will be remembered, snow fell pretty gen erally all day along the mountain range. In and around Helena it was only a prinkling, but in the hills it is reported to have covered the ground to a 'depth of four feet at some places. Nothing being heard from him after he left Riminl, some anxiety was felt regarding his eafety, and inquiries were made about a week later, reeulting in the information that he had not arrived at the mine, nor had anybody seen him. Search parties were organized but no trace of Mo Phee could be found. The company kept a standing reward of $500 for the finding of his body, and when they withdrew it Mrs. McPhee renewed it. She is very - much wrouRht up over the revorted discovery. The missing man had been in Montana about twelve years. He was a Canadian by birth, and before coming here was one of the mounted police at Fort MeLeod. He was accountant for a while at the Wickes smelter, and afterwards at the East Helena works. Later he became bookkeeper in.the Merchants bank. which position he gave up about two years ago. " ilasrow Lace Thread," the very beat material for crocheting, for sale only at Butcher & Brad ley's.
