MINES NEAR OSBURN.
The Coeur d'Alene Nellie Has Begun Shipping Ore to Helena. Much Expeoted from the Libby Creek County Now it Has a Railroad. A Concise Dserliption of the District with a Brief Mention of 8o.0e of the Properties. Oaneirc. Idaho, Oct. 13.--Special,J-The Ceeur 'dAlene Nellie mine at this place has commenced shipping ore to lHelena via the Northern Pacific road. One car load was sent to Pueblo. Col., as an experiment. Heretofore all Nellie ore has been treated at the Ryan smelter at Tacoma. She Nellie mine is about a mile back from the Ccunr d'Alene valley and the Northern 1'acifie and Union Pacific tracks. A fairly good, though somewhat steep, wagon road runs to the mine. Enormous loads of ore are hauled down this road to the railway switch where the cars are sidetracked The other day an ore freighter started down the grade with 8.000 pounds of ore on his wagon, when the brake gave way. The enormous weight made it imnpossible to stop, and the only chance was to run for it. Btrauge to say the outfit stack to the road, although the speed was something terrible before the bottom was reached. The wagon ran 300 yards on the level valley before the horses were able to slacken its speed. The driver, a nervy fellow, stuck to his post and saved the outfit at the risk of hie life. Cooper-silver ore in good quantities has bae n struck in the Shannon at this place, but the main ore body has not yet been reached. Development work has been in progreas for some weeks in the Shannon, and over 500 feet of tunnels are completed. This property is owned by F. A. Stevens and Win. Payne, and is now under bond to C. S. Jenning, T. H. McIntosh and others. The work has been done under the direction of Foreman J. J. Liddy. The Shannon is situated midway between two good mines- the Mineral Point and Ceour d'Alene Nellie -and the finding of a big body of or0 is oaily expected. The little mining town of Osburn is al- i most booming this fall. Active prepara tions by the Minnesota syndicate which has control of the Mineral Point and Cetur d'Alene Nellie are on foot for extensive op erarions on the Mineral Point. President Samuel McClure, of Stillwater, Minn,, is now here. Already this company has a monthly pay roll of about $5,000. The Ar gentine mine, owned by O. M. Lonsdale and others, of Portland, Oregon, it is re ported will resume work within a fortnight with a force of sixty men. This mine closed down in May last on ceconut of some disa greement among the owners. A new ser enty-five too concentrator and an expensive hoist had just been completed when the works shut down. The Argentine has a large body of low-grade galena with some gray copper and spathio iron. The ore is transported from the mine to the railway bl a gravity tamnway about 2,500 feet in i length. J. 1i. end Frank Davey, father and esn, a e arleral mIzlarriers. Last winter, while the mine was in full operation, eighty tone or ore were shipped daily to smelters at eloleun, with very satisfactory results. A s astem of wariter works is being put in at Ocborn by local cairitalits. The supply is taken f, om three large springs about a mile south of town, flumed 1,150 feet, thence carried by ion mains 2.000 teet to the main street, thence distributed to all rnrts of town. Electric lights are a possi bility for Osburn within the next six months. lIBrtY MIrNING DISTRICT. A Promlisng Section of Mllissoula County and Its Mines. The Libbv Miner, published at Libby, in Mihsoula county, on the linei of the Great Northern extension, in the last issue gives quite a lengthy description of the mines in that section. It sas that on what is termed i tile Big lnid of the KootLenai river, be tween latitude 4' and 4:1, longitude (Green- i wich) 115 and 11' 30-100( west, lies a mining district that until recently wa.s as little known as some vortioue of Alaska. lav-y ing made its debut as a mining country fi at in the early '60's, by placers located and worked on nearly every portion of its area, it naturally subsided owing to the floating I disposition of its discoverers and the then unknown existence and vi-tue of ar gentifelous quartz, and the lack of trana portation, into a state of lethargy, its quiet t only distnrbed by the regular yearly visits of some few prospectors who came to sluice cut its still remaining "diust."

One and one-half miles north we come to Leigh creek. The next oreek is tGmerle end of it very little is known at presert, owing to the re sult of a snowstlde, which in its edovement deposited soll enormous quantities of de brim that it is blind to all uses. Its future, however, is not blighted, as energy will overcome all such obstacles. Coming two miles (north) is Deep creek, the possessor of many fine propesties, the names of which we are not familiar with. Four miles north from Deep creek is Grante creek, having along its contour the Silver Crown group,, the Bl3ue 1Eyed Nellie, the losz Saw, Pay tock, lirotherhuod and othere, having within their limits nearly 700 feet of development, and possessing many virtues. Passing Flower creek the next mineral group is found on Cedar creek. They contain copper-silver ores and are owned by Clark et al. North of the Kootenai river on Rainy creek are several bright prosperts, notably the Kooteali lode, the Tombstone and the Violet. West of Libby creek 10 miles is the Grouse Mountain district, North and east are others in various stages of development, which await but the necessary capital to be brought ap to a paying standpoint. The product olt each district is of a char acter very valuable, owing to the high per centage of lead and iron. the spathio iron carrying from $12 to i90 in gold wherever found, and occurring an all properties with detlh. Although the bulk of the ores would not lie oiseaed as high grade in na tivity, their abundance and excellent con centrating privileges which abound in every section render them such after treat ment. The present drawback Is the lack of facilities for transportation of the ores to the railroad and the return of supplies and necessary mnachinery.
