CAMAS PRAIRIE MINES.
Returns of liret Shipments From the New Diseoveries Very Satishetory. The Nine Mile Oompany to start Its Mill on Novem ber 15. The Irom Mountanla Woerkl Its Usual Fall Fores, and Conceetratioa Is Ruanlnng teadly. MraaoItr.a, Oct. 80.-[Special.]-Returns from the first carload of ore shipped from the new discoveries in Camas prairie have been very satisfaotory to the men, and has more than paid for the time and expense 4 connected with its extraction, inoluding a considerable amount of development. The I ore is reported to have run at the smelter 185 ounces in silver. Another carload is on the dumo and will shipped. The Charcoal mine, from which this came, is looking very favorable and promises to be one of the great mines of the section. The Camas Belle, now being worked under bond, is shipping ore also. It is I located about two miles from the Charcoal. The ore is a heavy lead carbonate, 600 sacks of which are on the dump and being hauled to the railroad. The claim is a very recent discovery, and very little work has t beg done to show the exact nature of the I lode, but as nearly as can be judged from present appearances it is in a contact with a lime foot wall and quartzite hanging, the lode matter being a stiff red clay and talc, 1 There are numerous other claims in the I vacinity that show considerable ore, and the camp promises to be a regular shipper from now on. There is also somework being done in the old camp of Wallace, r which is stimulated by the disecoveriesnear by on the Camas Prairie side of the mount ain. At Nine Mile creek, fifty miles west of I Missoula, the mill being erected by the I Nine Mile company is nearly completed. This mill will start up Nov. 15, with ten stamps, but the power, building and foun dations are for twenty stamps. The addi tional ten stamps will be placed in the mill next spring. The machinery is of the best pattern in every detail. True vanners will concentrate the sand and sluices from the ( tables, and the equipment throurhout is complete. Two gravity tramways connect I the mill with the main working tunnels. These tunnels tap the ore bodies at a depth of 800 feet below the oroppings. These a7e from three to twenty feet in width. Few mines in the west have been so tho onghly e developed, preparatory to the placing of milling machinery with which to work the G ores. Over 2.000 feet of development work has been dohe on the three claims from which it is proposed to sup ly the ores to the mill. The company own thirty-seven B claims in all, but the greater part of the development so far done has been on the Golden Eagle and Protection. i These prorerties were purchased from Messrs. MoElligot and Lewis for $40,000. a The investigation and examination into the merits of the property was most comrn riete before the final payment was made. T The company has not placed a share of the stock on the market, the original pur- at chasers retaining their full Interests. C 'laken as as whole, it is perhaps the most conservative mining investment ever made in Missoula county, and every possible pre caution has been taken to secure the in vestors against loss. Large ore bodies are in sight, which guarantee regular divi- n dends. The principal owners are Messrs. II Woods, Larsen, Bickford, Lovejoy, Keith and Martin. The superintendent is J. ca Ililton Martin, of extended experience in C the gold quartz mines of Grass valley and other sections of California. 'the prospects o Wolf creek, across a i small divide from ine Mile, possess the S same general chars teristice, but develop ment as yet has Isen meager. everal d .parties are prepas g to remain on the creek during the ter and by spring ex pect to have their c ims sufficiently devel oped to justifiy the ection of a mill. At Pardee, on the sad of Flat creek, the Iron Mountain m e is working its usual 7 full force and the c centrator is running n ttiadily. The tra way from the mine to v the mill, something ever a mile and a half in length, is nearly completed. This will soon relieve the ming from the expense of hauling the ore. The shaft is now more than two hundred feet below the tunnel level Nothing is b ing done at iresent on the West Iron Monltain. The contract on the Silver Galena is beingpushed as rapidly I as possible. The placer miners on Cedar and Trout creek districts have done well this season. bome of them are still sluicing. TRAIL CREEK ROAD. Several Cars of Ore Will Be Shipped to Helena. Word has been received in Spokane that the importent wagon road connecting the Sheep and Trail creek miining districts with the Spokane Falis & Northern railroad at Northport bas been finished. In conse quence C. I'. Oudn, of Spokane, a part owner in the O. K. mine, an extension of the I. X. L., in Sheep creek district, left for Northport to ar anue for the shipment of a coarload of ore from the U. K. mine to lirlens. It is a gold-bearing rook, and if the sam ple test is as successful as expected Mr. ()udin expects to shit many cirlIoads be fore sp ing. Hle said that this road from Northport made it possible to ship ore from many important claims in Sheep and Trail creek diet iots. As there are rich deposits of mineral that will hardly bear a shipment to Hlielena or Tacoma. it is probable that a smelter will be erected in the near future at Northlport. 'IThe aexpense of the new road 'was borne entirely by the proprietors of Northport. DIn't faill t attend tlre special sale of calicorren at I'oe b.' live Mn lay mrne:lnig from lU io 12 o ,ir i.

ALL GOOD LAND TAKEN. Almost the Entire lrew tResrvattoa a Been itaked Of. Peter H. Henderson and John Johleos, employed at the Baxendale quarries, hav returned from a trip to Billings. The, went there for the purpose of loeating some land on that part at the Crow reservation ately thrown open for settlement. The gentlemen report that the squaw men and their numerous relations who were onthe ground when the astrip was thrown open promptly took advantage of the opportu nity and plastered all the rich portion with laims with the result that those who same later were shut out, so that what is still n taken Is of very little usee to a settler unleas he has water and timber. Some very fn claims have been secured. Most of the bet 'locations lie west of lHd Lodage toward the Rosebud. but good claims have also been located on Hook creek. Clark' fork and the Yellowstone. Cabins are be iljg built by the locato:s and the reserva tion is dotted with them in all directions. RELIEVING TIHE SUFFERERS. hoelter Provided for the Homeless Peo pie la llilwaukee.
