The mine is equipped a 1.1,6 hoilting engine and a new gal rame supporting double-deck cages. seakin of the Caeur d'Alenea country I i serl, Mr. Thayer says it is in a very t no condition, all the mines being .peatien. Among them are the Black and the 8tandard. The ore from the r dnAlene is being shipped to various for treatment, Helena, Omaha, Ta aid Deaver getting their share. i½rt is a probability that the Gem mine d -in a few days be sold to a syndicate of a lish capitalists, negotiations for which now pending. The Gem is now being c operated under the management of Joseph c MuDonald and is yielding a large quantity of ore, eleven carloads having been shipped Sfew days ago. a Several strikes of rich ore have recently O been made in the mines of the Cnear d'Aleness among which was one in the C Mammoth. The body of ore encountered S In this property is eight feet wide, four feet 1 of which is shipping and the other four feet concentrating. The property is owned tl by Walter MoKay, of this city, and Richard o Wilson, of Wallace, Idaho, and promises a to be one of the largest producers in the country. Three carloads of ore per week b are now being shipped therefrom. There was also agood strikesn the Stand- n ard mine a few days ago, the find being a vein of shipping ore eighteen inches in f width. The Standard is being operated by Campbell and Finch, who represent an R Ohio company. . The Argentine is at present under the Supervision of A. M. Esler, of Helena, who ' Is now treating some of the ore thereof at the Union concentrator, situated between c Gem and Wallace. Campbell and Finch n have also taken up the Idaho gold property t near Murray and are now dropping twenty I stamps on ore from this mine and the a atnser loda, Murray and the section there about is conasequently prosperous. A large quantity of concentrating ore is h being shipped from the Bunker Hill. This f property is under the management of V. M. Clement. W. O.

Shiel is the manager of the mine and is shipping about four car loads of ore per week. Under the management of Mr. Huntley The Morning, at Mullan, is doing good I work. Its new mill, however, is only run ning half its capacity. The Gold Hunter, ( at the same place, is now being operated to its fullest capacity under the management ir of Martin Curran. BELT MOUNTAIN MINES. Machinery for the Moulton Company's Properties and the Eureka. P. Harrison arrived in camp Monday to commence work on the Moulton Consoli dated company's properties, says the BlIt Mountain Miner. The officers of the company have changed their minds about delaying matters till spring and will push work forthwith. Mr. Harrison has the contract to put up the buildings and machinery and has already begun work. domeof the machinery and timbois are now somewhere between here and Great Falls and will arrive as soon as the Great Northern can find an engine strong enough to pull it. The machinery consists of a forty-flve horse vower boiler, engine, hoist j and pump. This plant will have sufficient power to sink 1,000 feet. It is the inten tion of the company to sink a double com partment shaft to a depth of 200 feet and then crosscut to the lead. The properties of this company are the Moulton, Harri son, jelfont and Pioneer, and on the first named the work mapped out at present will be done. This ploperty is generally held by mining men here to be one of the most promising in the camp. and the present owners-princinally Milwaukee capitalists -have every faith in its future, as is shown by the manner in which they are going to work on it. J. A. Carrier, of the Eureka Mining cnm pany, was in camp several days the first of the week and Tuesday went to Wolf Creek to make arrangements about getting the ground ready for the setting up of the ma chinery of the Eureka company. This machinery is now at Armington and will be hauled from there by teams. The reason for not shipping direct to Barker was fear that the deep snow on the divide would in terfere with the hauling. The machinery consists of two boilers of a combined capac ity of eighty-horse power, engine, hoist and pump. This is the most powerful machinery ever brought into the Belt mountains, and its size indicates the manner in whiclh the company is going to work to develop its property, which is very promising. The company owes two claims-the Euieka and Chinook-and the machinery will be erected between the two, where the shaft now is. The shaft is now down about 100 feet, and it is the intention to sink 200 feet further as soon as prac ticable. The ore body is of imamense extent and is free milling, though it is hardly expected that it will continue so at greater depth. Mr. Carrier informs us that there is about ten feet of of talc that runs thirty-three ounces in silver. and a much larger body-extent not exactly known of a decompoaed porphery that ruria thirty eight ounces in silver and 10 per cent lead.

A MONTANA OROIURD, A Miter Who Is Jin t etehranlg to Reap the Reward of His Foresight. One of the most ues.ful orohrde in Moutana east of the rioeky mountains at located near Oanyon ferry and is the prop erty of James Philipe, an ola.timer of that setion, says the Husabandan. Mr. Phil* lap. is a miner by oceupation, but has taken the precaution to locate himself a home nd plant an orchard, and is pow just be lanind to reap the reward of hit toil. Ie baa 1o00 bearing trees and the oldest of them are twelve years old. r bis orchar yielded about 00 worth of fruit this sea son and ever pound of it was marketed at home. When interrogated in regard to what partis a mncular method he had employed to bring about his coee in tree cumslture Mr. aPhillips aid that he gave his orchard no particular attention rexept to irrigate it sufiiently during the summer to okeep is in thrifty condition. He never multhes hie trees or irriastes late in the fall, and has no trouble with their bearing, ai fact hi only ditree lty Mr thi respect is that they are too rolifard no. He has never yet lost a tree from winter killing. Sometimes there are a few limbs winter killed and he has noticed sun blis ters on the limbs and trunk of hi treeves, but has never lost a tree after it once got a good start to growing. Like other fruit growers hei had some dif onulty in getting his trees started, but this done the problem weas solved. e says that mulching wi en tirely annecessary in bii looality. He weold, in fact, be better pleased if the spring frrostsdid kll some of the fruit, as his trees persist an attmptinlt to bear ore fruit than they can possibly support and have to be propped up, nd hedone thinks the apples wound be larger it there were not so many on each tree. Mr. Phillips has sea son to feel very proud of his efforts in this direction and we congratulate him that ho is the grower of so many nice trees and posteaity will sine his uraises, as they will those of many other pioneer fruit growers in these mountains.

Custer County Cattlemen Have a Plan to Replenish North ern Herds. The Scheme Is to Handle Range Cattle on a Moderate seate With Ample Provislon. The fact that a number of owners of cat tle in Custer county have decided to em. bark in the breeding of cattle. indicates that they consider that by oareful methods they can, in the northwest, produce their own calves to replenish their herds, says the Stockgrowers Journal. The northern ranges, of course, have not been depended upon as a breeding ground for the keeping up of the large herds, though since the hard winter, outfits that handled she cattle have made a success of the business, be cause of the succession of moderate win ters. But cattlemen, like a burnt child, dread the fire; the fear of a recurrence of such a winter as '86-7 was, will deter them from putting bulls on the raene as a means of keeping up the large herds. The W bar outfit at Minguevrlle brands about 10,000 calves a year, but they are said to be work ing out of she stock as fast as possi ble, hoping to be out of the range breeding business before another hard winter. The northwest has not been a breeding ground for the past six years; they have depended upon the southwestern ranges to keep up their herds. And those cattlemen, considering that the condition of the cattle market is due to over-produc tion, have been spaying. It would strike one that these interruptions with reproduc tion must have an effect upon the beef market of the country and upon the price of cattle. Whether cattle are decreasing in numbers as rapidly in the west as reports at times show is a vuestion, but there is one fact at least which indicates that such a decrease must take place, if has not done so already: and that is that comparatively few straight range herds are kept up. Those who oper ate extensively do so by bringing in south western cattle. The number of cows in the northwest has decreased at a wonderful rate in a few years. The natural result of this should have its effect upon the mar ket. Then, if it be true. as south western papers claim, that cattle men in that region are spaying to a great extent, the result should be to reduce the cattle and increase the price. It is a fact that the high prices for cattle have some in cycles of about six years. May it not now be the eve of an advance in the price of oattle? In our opinion it is. The indica tions are that cattle will sell at a good price next year. If this proves to be so it will iustify those who are now embarking in she cattle in their venture. I he plan is to handle range cattle on a moderate scale with ample provision for feeding them when lack of grass is appar ont. The cattle will still be range cattle, but will be run in such numbers that they can be cared for during hard winters, and cows will be allowed to get into condition by the early weaning of calves. This we consider a healthy movement which will be rewarded by success, for good cattle al ways sell well. The impression, however, forces itself that next year will witness an advance in price upon all cattle. There are three rea sons for this belief. First, the long con tinued depression in beef values has turned the farmers of the west from beef produc tion to other pursuits and production tis not keeping pace with the increase of popula tion. The second reason is the large fall. ing off in production of range beef from the gulf to the northern ranges. These reasons are sufficient to bring about a de cided reaction so soon as they are clearly understood in the market centers and it is believed that another year will demonstrate the true situation. Baut the third one Is one which will appeal to any one who has no ticed the papere: " there is far more in quiry for range cattle for feeders than there has been since 1885, and many of the old time cattlemen who sold out in'85-86, be cause they fo eosaw what was coming, are buying up cattle and are preparing to again handle big bunches." Undoubtedly the turn in the tide has come.
