Kantat, ai aecond-clas s matter. THURSDAY, OCT. 10. THE MINES. Bitr Chief still reports biir ore in its development. Mr. Lawley of the Alabama Mining Co., left for Birmingham the latter part of last week on business trip. C. M. Hoss of the McKinley Mining Co.. writes us that he ex pects to be in camp this week to start up the KcKinley mine. Chas. Gregory is sinking s deep well at the Lancaster mil to supply it with water when completed, which will be in a few weeks. J. C. Brvner reports that his big strike is looking better every day and as soon as he can get room that his turn-in will equa anything yet developed. Mr. Worth of the Myrtle mine has started up with everything in fine shape, and with both shafts working should make plenty of ore. as the dirt at this property is very rich. Miss Mattie McAllister has re ceived a commission as notary public, and can be found for no tarial work at the office of the Baxter Royalty Company, first door north of The Baxter Na tional Bank. The M. K. St T. has more ore on hand than any other property and it will continue to pile it up until it can get its price. With the two properties working, the mill is turning out lots of ore every day. The Mason Mining Co. is run ning steadily and Mr. Mason, who is now here, is very much pleased with the results. As soon as the underground development becomes sufficient the mill will be put on double shift. E. F. Sweeney & Sons are sink' ing the mill shaft at the McAl lister mine 20 feet, deeper in or der to get to the bottom of the ore. This will add an immense bed of ore to what they have been mining heretofore. George Rucker has bought in to the Stand ley lease on the Catholic forty and intends to drill it thoroughly. This lease is surrounded by mighty good properties and Rucker is looking to find big stuff on this lease. John Rice has gotten the Dark Horse combination together and is overhauling the mill and will start operations this week. With the Dark Horse on the west side and the Isley on the east he should be able to keep the mill going at full capacity. The Virginia has completed its crosscut between shafts No. 1 and 2 and now has excellent vent ilation. Preparations for its new mill are progressing well and everything will be in readiness on the arrival of the machinery, which, we understand has been a? It rrvk4 J. W. Watson, general mana ger of the 'Nebraska Mining and Development Co., returned Fri day last from a most prosperous business trip and is now arrang ing to put the Omaha mines in to operation to their utmost ca pacity. More power is to be ad ded to the mill and another large shaft is to be sunk at once. J. W. Barnes has brought in another rich drill strike on the Baxter Royalty Co. land in the Miami camp. This makes the third strike in succession. The lead and jack shows almost solid in the last drill hole for a dis tance of 5 to 8 feet at 158 feet, indicating a second run of ore as most of the others get their ore at 100-foot level. The Eastman Land and Invest ment Co. has started to lay a tramway from shaft No. 2 to it big mill. When this is complet ed the property will be started up and kept going. This is the property holding the record pro duction for the north camp and we are pleased to see it in oper ation again. The Kramer-Morse mill is do ing fine since the big crusher has been installed. The ore at this mine is 48 feet thick and a very high grade. A large portion o the yield is lead, which adds handsomely to value of the con centrates. With all the drilling that has been done on this forty acre lease tne confines ot the ore have not been determaned. Chris Newland has two bins o tine zinc ore on hand and is ad ding to it every day. He says he is going to hold his ore until he gets his price. The ore is of high grade and Chris should top the market. Development at this mine has shown up remarkably well, 30 feet of high grade ore is found in a shaft conglomerate and is easily mined and milled. The Common Law Mining Co is pushing its new mill to com pletion as fast as possible. In 1 1 a . e me meantime Air. t imotny is working the underground to have as much development as possible opened up by time mill is ready to run. The drilling on this lease shows an immense body of high grade ore over the entire twenty acres which corresponds to the bed found on the Micowber lease to thes outh and with the drilling on the Baxter Royalty Co. land to the north. The largest dump of ore ever piled up in the camp is now to be seen at the Sunburst mine This is certainly going at mining right, by getting on top a big lot of ore, before putting a big lot of money into a mill. It shows that the management of the Sunburst is using excellent judgment by thoroughly opening up the ground and preparing for a constant output before building a mill on its property. This has always been our idea of the way mining in this camp should be done. It is an excellent example to follow and we hope for the good of the district that other companies will follow the Sun burst's example. Ben T. Brooks, manager of the 3F Mining Co., has just complet ed a detailed report to the com pany on the condition and devel opment of its property. The re port shows a careful study of the conditions of this wonderful de posit of zinc ore. He tells what he has done in the way of dem onstration to convince himself of the judgement he passed on it at the time the company made the purchase. After going into the geological formation and the cause for its existence, he esti mates that above the present water level it has 41,000 tons of crush rock that will yield 5 per cent at a most conservative esti mate, and values it at $92,250. This is what is now in sight, it being but a very small portion of the lease. Two more levels of ore are known to exist and are opened up on the 80 and 105 foot levels. This is certainly very gratifying to have so good a re port from such a conservative an engineer as Mr. Brooks, and only goes to show the need of careful study of the conditions that exist before spending money for de velopment Mr. Brooks is now in Kansas City laying the matter before his company with a view of putting the necessary improve ments on the property to handle the ore to the best advantage. FIVE MILE. Mr. Myers lost his horse; it died very suddenly. Farmers are putting up their cane for winter feed. Miss Allie McCauley has position in Webb City.
