This ground has a fair amount of development and the ore taken mi nrnves the drillings which were very good. This adjoins the Sunburst bigeignty roxne northeast and is, no doubt, an ex tension of the same deposit. WMo-O'Brien Mining Company Viao its new mill about ready to start. It is expected to try it out the coming week and as soon as the mill can be adjusted enougn of rich dirt will be ready to keep th mill iroine steadily. Shaft no. 2, to the west of the mill, has rnven to be exceptionally ncn in jh lead and zinc ThVten-acre tract, which the company owns .... ia fee, and by the way is tne ianu for which it paid $700 per acre for. and is considered an excellent mirchase at that price, lays just to the west of the Charles Blue- rwt allotment for which Paul A. Ewert, Special-Assistant to the Attorney-General of the Uni- is '.A nc rmr mer. and lea oi&ics, f w- - this man is here, according to his statement to protect the Quapaw Indians, and their inter ests. Does this not look like tne official sent by the Government, for the purpose of protecting its - m ll alleged wards, is uexrauaing ine orphans of their inheritance? A new shaft is being sunk -on the' ten acres south of the Heap O'Brien Mining Company's land, vo f TT. Goodwin: This tract shows fine.ore which is a contin uation of the neap-O'Brien depos- it. We understand that tnis: lee is' also to be bought at $700 per acre, quite a contrast to the price paid for the land nearby bought by the Special' Assistant to the Attorney General for $25 per acre, 'llany . inquiries ;are ttiag made euch a trice could be accepted by the Indian Depart-! ment or how such an appraise ment could have been put on the land. J. C. Bryner has made good progress on shaft No. 2 at the Joanna mine, on the Baxter Roy alty Company land. Shaft No. 1 is being put .into shape to pro duce at the old time gait. De velopment in the direction of the new shaft indicates the concen tration of the many layers of sheet lead at about this locality, and therefore it is expected that on striking the ore level an 1m mense body of free lead and sil icate will be found. Chicago-Quapaw Mining Co. is running its mill steadily, with good results. A good face of ore is being worked and with the continual development enough of ore will be exposed to enable the mill to be run double shift. A good grade of ore is being pro duced. TheBaxter MlningTCompany bought the machinery at the Al abama Mining Co's shaft, on the Catholic Forty, lastj Thursday, and now this ground willbe put into operation at once. This has one of the best showings in the Lincolnville camp. .The ore was struck at 36 feet.howing 8 feet of sheet lead ground under which IS feet oforich'zinc ore was demonstrated. Considerable drifting on the lead deposit has been made, while the shaft has been sunklto the 60 foot level. Mr. Church and 'associates 0 Joplin Mo. have bought the min ing equipments on the McKinlej shaft, on the Catholic Forty, and it is expected that operations will be pushed on this lease at once. v Milling at the Big Jack mil was resumed the past week. Shaf No. 3 is proving to be a most prolific producer of rich ore. The drillings at this"sbaft showed ore from 115 feet to 151 feet, nd the ex. i ' a 1-- snail smiting is prpvingxac urn ings. ' This iSithe same ore de posit 'that J. W. Barnes discover ed on the Catholic Forty, when he found the ore at 118 feet which continued down to 152 feet, the assay of the drill cuttings show ing 6 percent metallic zinc and 2.40 metallic lad. The cuttings from the drillings at shaft No. 3 of the Big Jack showed approxi mately the same and is now being proven by the shaft ' The Tennessee Metal Produc ing Company, which has a lease on the Buck land, adjoining the Old Abe mine to the west, is run ning steadily and making a good record. The underground devel opment has proven to be good and many new drifts are being opened up showing fine ore. No. 2 shaft is being pushed down as fast as possible and it is expected that it will reach the ore by the first of the month. . ' The Masoi Mining Co. has started up and is now unwatering the mine. It is expected that this will be done in a few days and then the Big Foust Automat ic jigs will be put into cperstion and inn their initial test We understand the Lucille Mining Company is moving its home office to Baxter Springs. We are pleased to see it come hers, for there is not a more at tractive place to live than our home city, and with the many improvements that are contem plated in the near future, this attractiveness will be enhanced: Fine progress is being made at the Big Mission Mill. The big shaft which is 6 by 15 is down within ten feet of the ore bed. .The boilers are set as well as the two large compressors, with a combined capacity of 14 drills, the frame work of the mill proper is completed, likewise the big 1000 ton hopper. All the found ations for the mill machinery are in place. The two immense Foust Automatic jigs, one on each side of the mill, are also in position, they are so high that a step ladder is necessary to look into . them, ' and they should handle a large volume 6t ore. The elevators are all constructed and ready for the belts and ma chinerv to eauin them. . The sludge mill end has not yet been reached, but it will be completed by the time the balance of the machinery is in place. It looks as if the mill would be completed and ready for operation by the middle of December at west. A remarkably good showing is being made by the Omaha-Peters burg mine, adjoining the Mission to the north. An average of 8 to 10 tons of high grade eoncen trates are being delivered to the ore bins every day. New ground is being brought under the oper ations each day, and as the new territory is being penetrated, the ore is showing a marked im provement both as to quality and quantity, Following the rich strike made at the Oklah Mining Company's mine, on the Baxter Royalty Co's land, last week another extreme ly rich strike was made Friday showing free ore in such quanti ties that many cans of hand pick ed lead and jack were taken di rectly to the ore bins, not requir ing any milling. The full face of 4o fecHn height and as far to each side as tht work has pro gressed, show the continuation of this last strike. Drilling on this property showed the same formation that is now being dm en into, and is the main ore body on this lease. This only, furth er, emphasizes the fact, that is being demonstrated in all the mines, that have been developed to any extent, Jhat when the mam deposit of the ore bed is reached, that the ore improves quickly to a most profitable grade and puts the mines on dividend paying basis.. Several of the mines have gone through this ex perience and it has been verified so often that it is now taken as an axiom in this camp. Two cars of the highest grade ore in the camp,, have been made at the Good Luck mine during the past week. The first car assayed 60.85 zinc while the second car showed 60. This high grade ore is being taken from the lower drifts of the mine, and on . some prospecting being done in the bottom of these drifts, another deposit of equally high grade ore has been demon strated to exist below. Four feet has been gone through cp to date, how much deeper this new ore body extends is not . known, but . testing will; be xaaik to de termine its thickness. The Good Luck holds the "Banner" record of production for the size of its mill of any property in the camp. The Eastman IriV. CO. is maK- Frisco Time Table; NORTH BOUND.

In the meantime the mill is being put into condi tion to go as soon as the mine is ready to supply the ore. Will Study flovj to Treat Wood. Lawrence, Kansas, November 2.
