The deed reeltea that the syndicate control borax mines or factories In Han Bernardino. Inyo ami Ahi xneda counties of this State, Kamermlda county, Nevada, and Curry county. Oregon. Experiment!! are being made in Butte county, which so far liavc lieen successful, In thti use of dredgers for working large trauta of dry, low-grade gravel whli'h are not rich enough to he hydraullcked. Prospecting these deposit with steam drill Is also being tried. A slx-loeli hole is drilled to bedrock, taking out enough dirt for asay purposes by this means at a fraction of the usual cost. With the dredger gravel can lie worked at a cost of about :i cents per cubic yard, and thus low-grade deposits of gravel, of which there are almost unlimited iitiuntltlee in this State, may be profitably mined. Several of these dredgers which are now being built In Butte .county will cost iilmut S'Jft.0)0 eueh. and each will handle about LtKl cubic yards of gravel The I.lghtner mine, at Angel's. Calaveras county, has been mini with water which broke through from the Coleman shaft. TheLluht ner was flooded to wlthiu 100 feet of the eur The Oneida mine, Amador county, has a large ledge from which the first crushing of 100 tons yielded S4 per ton. The ore can be mined and milled at u profit. A very rich strike has been made in the Gold Uujc mine at I'loeerville. El Dorado coun ty. The report says a single pan yielded $100. A rich chute has been uncovered In the Bon net mine, which was worked some years ago and yielded gold to the value of $75,000. Then the lead was lost and the mine was abandoned. The present owners, after some work, have found the lead again. The rook mills from $ to $100 per ton. The Pennsylvania, at Grass Valley. Nevada county, haa declared a dividend of 5 oents per share.. Ten stamps are to be added to the milling capacity. At the Texas mine, near Nevada City, a seven-foot ledge of good value has been uncovered at 250 feet and a twenty stamp mil! Is to be built. Sulphur deposits have been discovered In Pan Diego county, about fifty miles from Flowing Wells station, on the Southern Pacific The larger part of the Old Boss and Mo Cleary gravel mine at Trinity Centre. Trinity county, has been sold to the McDonald Broth ers of French Quleh and San Francisco for 40.000. The property consists of about 1,000 acres of river benches and ancient chan nels. The average value of the gravel is good and the total amount of gold contained has been, estimated by experts at $10,000,000. A million or more has bean taken out during past years, and more recently the property has been profltaby worked in a email war. It la now to be developed on a large scale.The water supply will be tripled and new giants, flumes, pipe lines, sluloes.and elevators will be among the improvements. NEVADA. VtaoixiA Citt, Bept. 17. At Oolconda a body of superior copper ore has been uncov ered, and works have been erected which han dle sixty tons of ore every ten hours, producing four tons of matte. Two more furnaces are being built and Oolconda promises to be soon one of the big copper camps of the country. The gross value of the ore taken out of the De Lamar mine during the three months end ing in June!was $117,610. land the present net earnings of the property are said to ex ceed $130,000 per month. Work has been be gun to double the present 300-ton capacity. WASHIHOTOM. 8KATTt,c, Sept. 18. The Haber syndicate, operating in Troublesome district, lluvu in creased their working force to sixty, and are constructing wagon roads, trails and camps preparatory to development till winter. The ore bodies give assurance of permanency and . profit. in Republic illstriot the Republic mino Is making a wonderful chewing of high-grade ore that puzzles the experts. This ore is as white as chalk, and apparently as barren of precious metals. On the surface it assayed S'J per ton gold, but it increased rapidly in value aud now gives returns of from $100 to $200 per ton, and the ledge has widened to twenty five feet. Although but a small amount of work has been done, It is clulmed that over $2,000,000 is In sight, and that amount of Bogey has liecu ottered for t he property. At present it is regarded us the largest mino in Washington. ALASKA. Hiatti.i. Sept. 18 -lu southeastern Alaska Kotehiku.n is assuming impurtuiico as a min ing centre, and a great many discoveries have been made there. Within half a mile of the place during the pust week u goid ledge ..f Jroin six to twenty feet wide was discovered along the beach, the ore averaging $10 free gold and lfi iwr cent, copper. liln'overles of this character are of nlmost dally occurrence. The excitement over the Pine Creek placer mines ha subsided somewhat, and business lis settled down to n stead v gait. Thousands of locations were made und a large number of properties are being worked successfully, but no astonishing discoveries are being made. MONTANA. Bum. .Sept. 20. -Two good strikes are re Ported on the proiartv ofthe Eclipse Mining and Milling Compunv. between Maltese anil Borax in western Montana. The more Im portant is on the Keursarge. where in the bot tom of a forty-foot shaft the worktneu found three feet of ore which runs 25 per cent, lead and 140 ouuees in silver. The other is on the Hhakesjieare. where the company bus already cross-cut through Oh feet of ore. It is lower grade than the Kearsarge und entirely differ ent ore, running only !W"to 23 ounces lu silver. H to so iu gold, u little copper and no lead. The two ledges are running nearly at right angles with each other, crossing lu the ground owned by the Eclipse company A few weeks ago the vein at the 300-foot level lu the Overland mine was found badly faulted, causing a stoppage of pumping and a general reduction In the force. An explora tion force was retained to explore the fault, aud if lKJHslble recover the continuation of .the ore body, i'his has been done iu a grati fying manner. The new find bus been pene trated nunc than thirty feet, uud Is a large and rich oh ever. Drilling for oil Is going on twenty-live miles iwest of ited Ixxlge. The drill in down be tween 150 and 2oo feet. At the depth of 20 feet good prospects were encountered, and the formation all the wuv down indicates that oil in great miatitlty underlies the surface, but ut what depth Is purely problematical The formation is said to closely resemble that of the oil Held of Pennsylvania. It is the In- !tention to continue sinking to u depth of SO1) feet In case u flowing well Is not sooner en countered. The liiltcd Stales AsknylOfflce ut Helena re ceived lust week ti deposit of gold from the Oiit Edge mines at Cutaraot (Mty. The gold was cast lu two large bricks and was worth tttfi.llOO. The gold represents about six weeks run of the cyanide plant. The New Year group of mine in the Judith district has been sold to Denver uien. A dlumoiul coru drill was shipped frtm Butte this week to the liuby mine of the Gold Mountain Mining Company, ihe mine will lie thoroughly prospected both ut depth aud for parallel veius. The Monterey Oold Mining Company, own log the Monterey Mountain at Kadersburg, last week opened up In their tunnel a vein of rleh copper and gold ore, solid between wall and three feet thick. The vein Is a high grade shipping ore and will ship to the smelter with Put little If any assorting. The company has over 4,000 feet of shipping ore. IDAHO. Idaho City. Sept. 17.

The developments on the Yout.g America have produced severol thousand tons of copper ore which average. It I said, about 7 per cent. The tunnel, which has been run 400 feet, has out the ore Isxly at a depth of 500 feet. Nat Faleon's Silver lllll copper mine has de veloped a vast ore body which is showlug rich In gold and silver as well as copper. At the Arutite the new discovery on the I.lttle Mammoth is proving to bo a valuable find. The ore body Is fifteen feet wide and 1 hut 300 yards from the smelter site. The ledge has every appearance of being perma nent. laic sttPKRton. Hovohtow. Sept. 24. Never before In the history of Lake Superior copper mining has there been a time when so many men were employed, such large profits earned and so much new work under way. On Sept. 1, 1HW4, a trifle over 0.000 men were employed by the Houghton county mines. On Sept. 1, 1808, nearly 10,500 men were employed by the mines. On Sept. 1 four years ago tho market value of the Houghton county mines was approximately $40,000,000. while at the present time It Is almost exactly $00,000,000. having iiracti 'ally doubled in four years. The imputation of the copper district I increasing py leaps and bounds until Calumet, the most populous town, now has nearly 40.000 souls, making It the third largest mining camp in the world and the second largest in the tutted States. uTin. Salt Laee. Sept. lit. Tho Morcur Company is about to enlarge the dally capacity of Its mill to 400 Ions. It is reported that the guano deposits on Gunnison Island. Great Salt Lake, have been bonded to a French syndicate, and that the proiierty will be put on a paying basis. On the 1,700-foot level of the Mammoth mine the ore body has been encountered, car rying good milling value, while on the 1 ,000 foot level an Immense body of ore is blocked out. some of which assays ten to twelve ouuees in gold and twenty to thirty ounces in silver. Work has begun on the erection of the Highland Boy smelter. It Is expected that by Dec. 1 the plant will be handling 500 tous of ore dally. The Comstock mine at Park City is showing ore which assays 30 per cent, lead, 57 ounces silver, 10 per cent, copper and $12 iu gold. The Grizzly mine at Alt, in the Cotton woods, made a shipment a few day ago which carried values of 25 per cent, copper, while a second lot showed 40 ounces silver and 40 per cent. lead. It Is predicted that Mercur'a ontnut will be doubled within a year. The camp Is now troating a little over 1.000 tons of ore dally. A shipment just made from the Annie Lau rie, on Oold Mountain, shows ore running as high aa seven ounoes In gold and thirty-two ouuees silver to the ton. ONTARIO. Dt'i.i'TH, Minn. Sept. 20 Since the resump tion of work on th new railroad project from Lake Superior westerly through Canadian territory there has beeu a marked revival of interest In the iron ore deposits of the Cana dian country north of Lake Superior. These deposits have been known in a general way by Iron men for several years, but have been entirely neglected on acoouut of their distance from railroads. A month ago work began on the Ontario and Rainy River Railroad, that will connect the line now building from Winni peg eastward with the old Port Arthur. Du Iuth and Western, that reaches fifty miles west from Lake Superior. Within the month locations have been made of available out crops and vein indications for thirty miles along the Atlkokan and Mattnwan ore ranges, near which the road Is expected to pass. In dl?atlonssre that a new and enormous deposit of Iron ore of high grade has here been found. MEXICO. Guatmas, Sept 17. The Mexican Metallur gical Company of San Luis Potosl and La Plata Mining Company of Monterey have or ganized the Chrysolite Mining Company, with a capital of $500,000. and transferred to it their holdings in the eight mines known as th San Felipe group, in the Sierra Mad re Mountains, near the terminus of the Monterey Mineral Railroad. The new company pur chased the interest held by J. A. Robertson uud J. Rice In these properties, paying at the rate of half a million dollars for the whole. The Denver mine, owned by La Plata Com pany, has been leased to the Chrysolite Com pany for twenty years. The combined pro perties cover 3i0 acres In the centre of the most Important silver and lead mining district In Mexico. Plans have been formed for work on a large scale. A main tunuel will be driven to traverse all the mines 3,200 feet below the present work of the Denver mine. Modern methods will be used In working this big con solidation. There will be an electric plant, telephoue lines, aerial cables and surfuce tram ways. A ' Philadelphia company, working near Maplmi, Durango, is completing a forty-ton furnace tor smelting Its copper ore. The Ka hlua Mining Company has bought Ave claims in the district of Baucarl for $5,000 gold and one-third of the stock of the company. The Barranca mine at Ameca is turning out ore that averages $2o and over in gold aud twenty ounces of silver to the ton. BRITISH COLUMBIA. Seattle. Sept. 18. Rosslond Ti fairly ex celling itself in the production aud shipment of ore. It has outstripped during the post week all previous records, showing a grand to tal of 3,;74 tous. Tho greatest previous rec ord was in July, when 3,050 tons were shipped. The output of lust week was from the War Jtigle, l.e Rol, Iron Mask and Giant. Tho White Bear has a shaft down nearly 240 feet and three feet of ore at the bottom of the shaft. The ore gives returns of $43 in sold and copper. On the surfaoe the show ing did not exceed $2 per ton. but It ha grad ually increased. The War Eagle la producing at the rate of 200 tons a day. The Iron Musk is taking out about thirty tons daily. In Nel son camp the Monument group of silver-copper claims ha been bonded: to Nelson men for $00,000. the bond running till the last of October. The Eureka mine on Eagle Creek. Nelson district, ha changed hand for $30,000, the purchaser being W. H. Watts, a member of the Toronto Board of Trade. At Grand Forks the Riverside claim has struck a large ledge of $40 gold ore. und the ledge Is being cross cut. On Sinwash Creek, near Yale, the Pacific Northwestern Development Company in creased Its force the past week and Is clearing tho jam from the mouth of the creek where It empties Into F'roser River. Surveys are being mado for ditches and a hydraulic plant will be placed on tho property ready for service early in October. In the Cariboo country, on n branch of Wil liams Creek.

Suicide Suggested by Several ('Irnamstances -Lay side by Side with Their Reads on On flail Mail No Move When Kngln Wlilatl SoiiuiUtl-Nn Clue to Identity. A Coney Island train on the Kings County Elevated Railroad In Brooklyn struck and In stantly killed a man and a woman In the Mal bone streot tunnel, near Prospect Park, at 1 :20 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The bodies were dragged a distance of fifty yards under the engine before the train could be stopped and were so mangled that Identification by anything but the clothing that they wore would be Im possible. Dp to a late hour last night neither body had been Identified, although a score of people had called at the Grant street police station to see them. The police are unable to determine whether the couple committed suicide or were acci dentally struck by the engine There were circumstance which made the suicide theory plausible, the most convincing ono being that the man and woman were lying with their bodies between the east and west tracks, with their heads across the lmddo rail of the latter. The tunnel is a comparatively light one during the day time, and unless the man and woman were drunk or asleep they could scarcely fall to note the approaoh of the train. Yet the engineer says that they never made a move to get out of the way after he saw them. Another circumstance which the police think strengthens the suicide theory Is th fact that there Is nothing on either body, not so much as a mark on the clothing, which would give a clue to the Identity of tho couple. The Malbone street tunnel Is about aa long as two ordinary elty blocks. A dozen yards south of it is tho Prospect Park station of the Coney Island branch of tho Kings County road. During the daytime one can see twenty foet ahead In the tunnel, Thcro is consider able space between (he tracks and be tween tho outside rails and the walls of the tunnel. There Is n sign at either end of tho tunnel warning people not to walk through It, but for years this sign has been disregarded, and people walking along the tracks have gone on through the tunnol with out hesitation. To go up and over Malbone street to tho other side of the tunnel necessi tates climbing up a steep hank, and then walk ing several blocks around and down another steep bank to reach the tracks again. Pedes trians prefer tho chances of tho tunnel to going over tills circuitous and somewhat difficult route. Engineer George Kessell of 34 Wyona street wa In charge of Engine 37, which drew the Coney Island train leavlugthe Brooklyn Bridge at 12:40 o'clock. Conductor Bernard Burns was In charge of the train. The last stop be fore Prospect Park was at tho Butler street station. The train leaves Fultou street at Franklin avenue and leaves the elevated struc ture forthe tracks of the old Brighton Beach Railroad after drawing out from the Dean street station. Engineer Kessell say that when he entered the tunnel he was going at the usual rat of speed. He had gone about 150 feet In the tun nel when he made out two figures lying on tho ground In the position already described. The moment he saw them, he says, he pulled the whistle cord and reversed the lever. Neither figure moved, he says, and a second or two later the engine struck them. He heard no shriek, not a sound but the thud as the en gine struck the bodies When the train came to a standstill he Jumped from the engine and joined Conductor Burn and the other train hands. They oould make out the bodies under the engine, but in the poor light oould not ex tricate them. Two of the gatemen and several Faengers went on through the tunnel to the 'rospeot Park station, where they secured lanterns. At the same time they sent word to the Grant street station for a patrol wagon. After a half an hour's work the bodies were taken out and then. Engineer Kessell says, he knew for the first tlmo that one of the victims was a woman. The man's head was almost completely out off, but he was not much In jured about the body. The woman's head was crushed in aud her left arm and left leg wore severed from the body. The remain were put in the patrol wagon and taken to the sta tion house. The man was about 42 years of age, had light hair and light eomnlexlon. and was 6 feetu inches tall. He wore a gray striped sack coat, dark trousers, laee shoe, under wear that wo rather ragged and a derby hat. The woman wan about 40 year of age. 5 feet 4 Inches tall, had dark hair and wan quite stout. She wore a lavender waist, a red and black figured calico skirt, a white and black straw sailor hat and button shoes. After the bodies had been taken from the tun nel the train resumed Its trfn to Coney Island, in charge of the fireman. Kessell was arrested and locked up in the Grant street station. The police made every effort to find out who the dead man and woman were, but without avail. They corralled everybody In the vicinity of Malbone street and made them look at tho Imdles. but none was able to Identify either. William Pascal, a popcorn vender, who hangs around Malbone stroet, told the police that no saw the man and woman entering the tunnol about Ave minutes before the train camealong. Ho had never seen either before, and dldn t pay much attention to the couple, a he was ac customed to seeing people walk into tho tun nel. They were walking along the track when he first saw them, nnd no his Information was of little use as showing from where tho couple came. Capt. Leavy of the Grant street station says that there wus an odor of liquor about the man nnd woman when the bodies were brought Into the station house and he Is unite certain that they had beeu drinking heavily.

Henjntntn Fox, Who Conducted n Foundry In This City for Fitly Year. Benjamin Fox, who died last Friday, was at the time of his death the oldest living brass and iron founder in this city. For more than fifty year he had owned and personally conducted the foundry on West Thirty-fourth street, be yond Tenth avenue, which bears his name. It was the same foundry all the time, but under different aspects, for It began on a very small scale whon Mr. Fox oame to this country from England In 1847, being thon a young man of 23, and decided that there was a good opening for a foundry on West Thirty-fourth street. At that time there were openings for almost any thing in that locality, the chief Industry being the raising of weeds In unoccupied lot. There wcro indication, however, that It wa to he a growing business district, and the young foundryman made no mistake in the selection of his site. Being himself a master workman, he we able to pick out competent men to serve him. Boon his business expanded beyond the limits of his little building. He put on additions. Itwasno use: the business filled the additions and de manded more space. Then he built a new building. A picture of this building taken In 1800 shows a locality characterized chiefly by straggling wooden structure, in the midst of which the foundry looks very substantial and businesslike. In the course of time that build ing was outgrown and was superseded by tho present one. Through all those changes Mr. Fox was the head and centre of tho establish ment right up to the time of the final illness which compelled him to quli his place In the office. He was one of the old style of business men who believed In the efficacy of personal supervision and of personal relations between employer and employed. To him his men were something more than parts of a machine to grind out profits. Many of them had been with him for years Their personal affairs were known to him. and as he wandered about the place Inspecting the work he would mingle his remarks anil criticism with questions as to the welfare of their families. It was a proverb in the foundry that there was no bit of work which "the boss" could not do If he chose, and occasionally ho did so choose, for he wan not above taking off his coat and plunging into the work when it won not moving swiftly enough to suit him. "I'll show you how It ought to be done," he said, and pushing tho workmen aside he would stoutly set himself to the task. Ono day he criticised mildly ono of the oldest workmen In tho foundry for n bit of work : "I think I could do it better myself, Jim," said he. "Mobbe that's true, Mr. Fox." said the old workman: "but there's no othor man lu the place could say It." To the people of the neighborhood Mr. Fox was a timepiece for his business regularity. When he reached the Allotted threescore and ten years some of his friends suggested to him the advisability of retiring and leaving the business for somebody else to carry on. " What!" cried the old founder. Would you leave a lively young fellow like me kicking around with nothing to do? I tell you, harm would come of it. When I retire It will bo for good reaon." It was for the best reason, when ono day a short time ago ho failed to appear at the foun dry. His life of hard work told on him when the collapse came, and he sank quickly. The funeral will take place to-day from hi house at 613 Wet Thirty-fourth stroet. He leaves two sons and two daughters. Mr. Fox wa a mem ber of the Masonic order. POLICE WAXT PR. GUICEOBD. Her Presence Needed to Clear Up the Mys tery of Kniiim Gill's Death. Bridgeport. Conn., Sept. 25.

To-day has been a quiet one for the police. Much work has been accomplished toward tho preparation of the case. Tho red-geared wagon, the articles found In the Guilford homo after the flight of its Inmates the day after the body was found, and many other clues which tho police have but refuse to give out have been carefully gone over ami prepared to be used for the prosecution. In Connecticut all the parties to tho crime aro charged as principals and may be prosecuted as such. Thero Is a statute which so provides, and the charge of accessory before and after tho fact does not exist in this State. If Mr. Guilford is charged with murder, all those in any way connected with tho crime will be charged with and tried for murder. It will be probably a week before the papers necessary to bring Eudora Guilford to this city will reach Wellsburg. N. Y. The hearing In tho cases against those under arrest now Is set down for Oct. 1. Unless Mrs. Guilford Is ap prehended before that time it is probable that the hearing will be further adjeurned.

It IHiplnyed An Many Appetising Attrac tions That Jaws of Little Faith Were T.mpfed to Break Their Fast Place Closed to Prevent Further Trnubl. Orthodox Hebrew raised a row at Division and Canal streets last evening. The trouble was due to the refusal of Horrloh Brothers to close their restaurant at 141 Division street. At 6 o'clock the day of atonement, or Yom Klppur. began. This day Is given over to fast ing and prsvor. nnd the fast, according to th laws of the Jewish religion, must be strictly kept for twenty-four hours. lromptly at 6 o'clock all the stores, restaurant, and other eant side establishment owned by orthodox Jews were closed. Only the unorthodox kept their shops open. The Herrloh brothers are noted on the east side among the Hebrews. The little triangle at the Intersection of Division and Canal street is the meeting place of political spell-binders and Inbor agitators. Speakersof anarchlstlcal tendencies. It Is said, adjourn to the restaurant after the gatherings and there meet their fol lower on a personal footing. The young American-born Hebrews of the neighborhood go to the place, as they may be freer there than in any other of the little cafe and restaurants kept thereabout by people of the Hebrew race. When the fast began last evening the restau rant offered so many temptations to break It that gray-bearded orthodox patriarchs gath ered before tho doors and remonstrated with the Herrlchs. telling them that they ought to close the restaurant. To this the Herrlch merely shrugged their shoulders. A large crowd gathered. Home Jews went into the place, boldly sat down at the tables and began to eat. They woro nearly all boys of 10 or 18 years, to whom the sight of the food was too appetizing and tempting to resist. The sight of these woak brethren violating the tenets of the faith raised the Ire of the older Jews.

Instantly those about the door surged for ward as If to mob the place. Many mora stone wero thrown. One policeman. Baker of the Madison street station, who was at the door way with his night stick raised, charged the crowd. The Hebrews wore uot looking for a fight, and those In front drew back. Baker sent for the reserves at the station, and Acting Captain Brown came with them. Brown talked to the keepers of the restaurant in Yid dish for a few minutes and decided that, to preserve the peace of the community. It was best to close the place, so It was shut up. The crowd was driven back and policemen were posted to keep everybody moving. If more than three person got to talking together within a block of the place they were ordered to movo on. Tho patriarchs, having accom plished their purpose of closing the restaurant, went their way. but a crowd remained behind that kept the police busy thereabout until late in the night.
