Personals and Mining Notes- Stock Quotations-Granite- Bi-Hetallie San Francisco-Pearl-West Gran ite-Hatta. PERSONALS AND MINING NOTES. H. M. Dunbar is taking out some rich ore from the Fred Burr. Schardt & Boyle have sold the F,4.Ta S. claim to the Granite company for $1,000. The Pearl mining company have com menced excavating for a concentrator in the valley on section 11. 1Meyerdirk & Kelleher are working the Ethan Allen claim and say it is looking first-class and promises to become a mmie. J. E. Myer has sold the Black Horse claim, located at Hasmark, to the Buck eye company and has taken Buckeye stock in payment. J. R. Wilson is working the Black Horse claim for the Buclieye company. He has sunk a shaft 15 feet and struck a 2-foot vein of high grade ore. Although but little has been said of late regarding the Maroney tunnel, at Hasmark, work is progressing all the time, and has found some stratas of very rich ore. The prospectors and miners in this dis trict were never in better courage than at present. Most all the prospects are showing up well and many have struck rich leads of ore. J. H. and W. H. Stahl, who are work ing the Hawkeye mine, report very favor able results from their labors. The ore is high grade, and they are soon to make a large shipment. The Silver Chief is one of the most en couraging prospects in this vicinity at present. The ore is very rich and as yet they have not found either wall, conse quently they do not know the extent of the lead. J. E. Mulford, of the well-known firm of Switzer & Mulford, mining brokers of St. Louis, has been making a tour of the mines in this district during the past week and says the San Francisco is the most promising of all.

The output for the week ending Aug st 29, was 36 bars of bullion, containing 60,627.45 ounces silver and 34.49 ounces gold. There is not so much activity as usual at the millsite of the Granite on Fred Burr the past week. About one-half the force of men have been laid off, leaving only about fifty men on the ground. The railroad is completed out to the millsite, and the construction will probably be commenced very soon. BI-MIETALLIC. The new hoisting-works are almost completed; at least, the frame-work once more covers the scene of the late ruins. The big pump at the 500-foot level has been reached and all work is now bcing done to the best advantage. At the millsite on Douglas gulch work is going ahead with great rapidity. The grading will all be done this week. They already have three of the stone walls up, and are now grading out for the ofice. The lumber and timbers for the construc tion is arriving daily, and the mill wrights will in all probability commence work the first of next week. If progress continues for six weeks at the present rate the mill will be completed, and the early morning will then welcome the echo of the new Bi-Metallic mill. SAN FRANCISCO. This company is very active in adopt ing everything for rapid and economical mining. During the week they have lowered the big pump down to the 400 foot level, and will commence sinking Saturday. In the east 400-foot level- they have 3 feet of very rich ore, and in the west 400 foot level they are just coming into the contact lime and granite. They expect some good ore on this level very soon. and from present indications they will not be disappointed. They are now shipping ore enough to defray exkpnse of sinking. PEARL. The work at the Pearl is progressing in the usual satisfactory manner. The main shaft is now down 90 feet below the tunnel level, and the 209-foot station will be reached during the coming week. Good ore has been encountered in the shaft while sinking. The tunnel is being rapidly pushed forward and the best ore ever taken from the mine is now in the header. The development of the Pearl has thus far been of the most satisfactory nature, and shipments of fine ore may soon be hoped for. WEST GRANITE. The report regarding the suspension of work on the West Granite is untrue. Our mining editor visited the Butte crosscut during the week and found the usual force of men at work in the header. 1 he rock is hard as ever and work pro gresses slowly. HATTA. The Hatta continues to improve as usual. They are now down on the shaft 2':0 feet and have struck a 7-foot lead of good ore. The are soon to make a ship ment. Mr. Holland, president of the company, says he is confident that the Hatta will soon pay her way. DUNKLEBERG DISTRICT. Mitchell & Mussi;t :'dd are sinking an air-shaft on the Forest Rose mine in the Dunkleberg district. A. B. Hower and others, who are work ing the Little Joe, are getting out some fine looking ore, and expect to make a shijpment suon. Dave i)unkleberg is making good progress on his property. f is new steam hoist is doing going good work, and his mine will undoubtedly be a big success. He expects to make another shipment of ore soon. A NEW INCORPORATION. Messrs. A. M'eyers, E. L. Ligget, Dan Lanburn, Nat. Vance, Al. Gillis and Dr. Dixon are the incorporators of what shall be known as the Dora Thorne min ing company, consisting of the Old Do minion, Little Turf, Red Chief and Dora Thorne claims, adjoining the Sydney company's property on the north. It consists of 4,000 shares, par value $5 each; half stock in the treasury. The treasury stock wii be so'd at 25 cents The reccnt en.oo.raging reports from the Sydney will be instrumen:al in the new company making rapid advancement. A contract 1h-s been let to a well-known miner to sink a shaft and work will be commenced at once. MONTANA NEWS. Lewistown wants a fire department.

Even among the Indians the govern 1n- nt has made a civil marriage neces s:ry, and by law this must be performed tbefor the priest can perform the relig Eous cerellony. After both forms have been complied with the guests repair to the bride's Iontle, each bringing a basket to cairry home a share of the wedding sunlper. The brid'egroom supplies the whisky, and a viifainous compound it is. Connoisseurs iav it conti:ns more "head" than any alcoholic drink in existence. The bride is dressed in bright colors, the finery of her entire family being loaned to her for the day for her adornment. Over her head, as a marriage veil, she wears a white coarse muslin poncho. .A large table is set, and the plntes are filled with sweet tlhings and other eatables con sid,,red appropriate for a weddmng feast; i:is expense is borne by the bridle's fam ily. After congr:'t:atuig, the happy pair the guests asmbile arotind the tabll and drink whisl;y "straight," but by customn they are lnot pe-ritted to eat a mouthful, though to lhpicks aresupplied, and they content themstelves by picking their teeth between drinks. The del;auch continues until there is no more wihtl:y, when each family emlll iCs its plates of food into its own basket to lie trten on arriving at home, but the pIla*s are re Flaced on the table, and the b:ride's mother carefully counts them Lefore she allows any guests to depart. - Guatemala Cor.
