A SEVENTEEN DAYS' HUN.
A $6,000 Output of the Independ ence Mine on Exhibition at Livingston. Bear Park Oompany Resuming De velopment Work on Its Mines Near Barker. Water la the Mortaon and Woodhlrst and Some of the Force Laid OLt H. E. Laveaux and J. B. Hooper, of the Independence Mining company, are down from the Boulder district, says the Liv ingston Enterprise. From them we learn that the Independence mine never looked better than at the present time. In fact all the properties upon which work has been prosecuted the past season in that district make a good showing, and pros pects for future outonuts of the yellow metal are exceedingly bright. The Independence company has closed down the Hidden Treasure mill which they have running under lease and will confine their milling operations to their own mill, which will be increased in capacity by the addition of ten more stamps. The object of thus con centrating mill operations is to make a large saving in running expenses, such an arrangement dispensing with additional workmen and teamsters that have been required in keeping mills run ning at two locations. The mines of the company are now sufficiently devel oped to insure an abundance of ore for the Increased milling plant to be put in. The upper tunnel is in a distance of 3.0 feet with eleven stopes through the ore body which average about thirty inches in width. In the lower tunnel the ore body was re cently struck at a depth of 200 feet, expos ing over twelve inches of quartz which is believed to be even richer than in the up per tunnel. With this showing there is every reason to believe that the Indepen dence will soon rival as a producer any of the rich mines of the tocnky mountain re gion. The National Park bank has had on ex hibition the past week eleven bars of gold valued at $0G000, the output of the Inde pendence mine in the Boulder district rep resenting seventeen days run of the com pany's mill and that of the Hidden Treas ure which has been under lease by the in dependence company. This exhibit of the yellow metal is the largest single shipment ever made from the Boulder district and indicates the richness and capabilities of the Independence mine. BARKERK MINES. Extensive Development Work by the Bear I'ark Company. The Bear Park Mining company is one of those which seems determined to push the development of its property, says the Belt Mountain Miner. Operations have lately been resumed, and it is the intention to sink on the Utica, one of the claims be longing to the company, two hundred feet during the coming winter. The property of this company is located on IRunning Wolf, about two miles above the Mortson and Woodhurst. It consists of four claims upon all of which there is more or less de velopment work done. The Utica, upon which work is to be done during the winter, is opened by a forty-foot tunnel. An eight foot lead is disclosed, from which assays have been made, showing 40 per cent copper and carrying some silver. The Hudson is another promising claim from which assays return as high as sixty-eight ounces in sil ver, and carrying a trace of gold. Next the hanging wall there is a capping of decom posed quartz, which runs 70 per cent lead. The Bellevue, another of the company's claims. shows a vein of silver-bearing ore which assays forty ounces and some lead. The Broncho has been opened by a forty foot tunnel showing a ten-foot vein of hem atite iron; this will almost unquestionably run into an immense body of ore when sufficient development work is done. The Bear Park company is composed of ener getic and pushing men, who have faith in their prooerties and are determined to show them up as rapidly as possible, as they believe that they will prove to be divi dend payers as soon as sufficiently opened up. About a week ago or more water was struck at the 200-foot level of the Mortson and Woodhurst to such an extent that it was found impossible to continue opera tions there without machinery, and so a portion of the force had to be laid off, and those kept at work commenced to take out ore in one of the drifts. Superintendent Charles Gibson at once went to the Falls and made arrangements for laclhinery with the Great Falls iron works. He returned to camp Friday evening, having left in structions for the machinery to be ship; ed at once, anti some of it has arrived since. .aturdary he wenrt over to the mine to .et thrrgs in shrape for Dutting it uI'. 'lThe shaft on the mine is now down 2(() feet, anrd it is thie utenrtion as soon as the u:.- chinery, which conslsts of at boiler, holrtr and pump, is tin running o'der to contlnllrrt sriking, so as to fullyv detarmiu e the derth of tha oe body, arrt It-at to a cerlrlnn deptlh. ''lhe ore that Is mrow berlg taken rut will be shippsd to the Valle, via JBarker, in thIe inear future. Work will be continaed all winter, both taking out ore and sirkling. Clllnere Lieu lrtw.

Sand Point is in a state of the wildesl rexcitement over the discovery of a moun tain of quartz about thirty-five miles fron there, which runs high in gold. About ter days ago two prospectors brought in some rock to have assayed, and when they re eivled the returen the amount was to large that they could hardly believe they were true. They returned, however, to where they found the rook, made several locations and brought in some more of the rook to be tented. Two eamples were sent to Spokane and one to Messoula. What the assayewere was not knot known y any othera than those who made the discovery, but their actions in making preparations to leave being so munh different from other similar ocoa alone, excited sespicion, and they were fol. lowed to their discovery. After they had made all the locations they could hold they gave out the amount of the assays. Im mediately about twenty-ive prospectors started for the place, and now the country is alive with them.
