It will be noted that Baxter Miami camp has made a decided gain on Duenweg for third place on the list. Price of spelter has dropped five cents a hundred during the past week bringing to Cc. Ore price showed weekness in sympa thy with spelter, selling fror $46 to $48 for 60 per cent zinc. Lead is a very strong position and notwithstanding the manip ulation of the price by the smel ter trust, the buying was strong at $58. As predicted in thes? colums for a long time, the price of lead ore is bound to reach a record breaking point during the year of 1910. And it is being held down now onlv by the most flagrant manipulation by the smelters. Work at the Paola shaft south of the Lancaster lease, is show up better as the development pro cedes, thus demonstrating the drill testing on this land, as'well . as prospecting the extension of the heavy ore deposit which the Lancaster has been working on in its ground. . Heap-O'Brien Mining Company "is making good progress in driv- i ,:-. tn rnnr.ect mill shaft "with shaft No! 2 to the west rm... ; in!nir fine work and handling up to its rated capacity each day. This is a typical property of the. south- camp, showing as it does the ore in tht chert formation, which, is . easilj broken . free from the gaugue, giving a cican cicar ut't"si and making a high grade con 'centrate and it is likewise typi cal of the mirumum cost, at matter. which such a property can be put into operation for, in the south camp where the conditions are so uniform over the explored area. This property has had an excellent management from its first inception, and has been looked after as all such under takings should be, with a stead fast idea, that for every dollar spent, a dollar's worth of return should be shown, resulting in a complete property being put in to successful operation at the minimum cost. To the south of the Heap O'Brien property, a shaft is ex ploring the same rich ore. depos it on which the above property is mining. This shaft is being developed by Tom Goodwin, and the sinking is being done by Mr. J. C. Bryner & Son. The ore bed has been penetrated and ore is now being dumped on the ore pile. Bill Jones has completed the installation of a very complete water works system at the Con vent School, on the Catholic Forty, for the Baxter Mining Company, who has this land un der lease. Work on the drift connecting up the mill shaft with shaft No. 3, at the Big Jack mine is being pushed right along. It is from this work that the mill is being kept going at the present time. This work is blocking out an immense body of rich ore in this property. The No. 3 shaft is some four hundred feet to south and all along this distance is found no end to the rich ore bed, encountered in both shafts. This is on the same ore deposit that has been traced by dilling south and southeast onto the - Catholic forty, where the McKinley shaft demonstrated the same big de posit as the extension of the bed now being worked by the Big Jack. North it makes through the Tennessee Metal Producing Co's mine, where the same rich ore is being mined. Frank Stansbery has charge of the ground at the Myrtle mine, and this property is making an excellent record under his man agement. It not only has a high grade ore but it has lots of it. The Big Mission mill starts up J this week and while it will take! sometime to adjust it to its gait' still this marks the . starting up of the largest mill in this district. As soon as this . adjusting pro cess has been accomplished this property will produce something' like three cars of concentrates' per week at the lowest estimate, ' which will add materially to thej output of the district. A great! to the operation of this mill and many of the operators arc watch ing the results of its work, feel ing that in making good on the ideas installed that they them selves will be folllowing the processes this year. Much; has been promised by the makers, of the Foust Automatic-Jigs, and as this is really the first time that a tboroughlest will be giv-j ta them in this district, much anxiety is being manifested as' to how they will stand the test, and whether they , will do all that their manufacturers claim for them, and the crux is to be soon arrived at. Bids were received something over a week ago by the Omaha Petersburg Mining Company for the erection of its Big Five Hun dred ton mill, which has been planned along the lines of the sizing system, introduced into this district by Mr. Tom Hack wood, of the Eastman Investment Company, and which has proven so successful in saving the. ores of the White Eagle property. The officers of the above com pany are to be here during the present week to let the contract and start the erection as soon as possible. This company has 160 acres of fee. land in the heart of the district, and by shaft devel opments and drillings, has dem onstrated an enormous deposit of rich ores, and the erection of the above mill is contemplated to take care of only a small portion of the demonstrated ground, as it is intended to follow this by many more large mills on this company '8 land. The busiest place in this sec tion of country is at Riverton, where The Empire Power Com pany is spending a few million dollars in building a mammoth power house to supply Ihe in creasing demand for electric power. The company is also building a bridge somethingover a thousand feet long to cross the cutoff caused by the backing up of the waters from Spring river when the dam was build at Lo well. Several hundred men will be employed at Riverton this summer. Last Saturday forenoon the residence of Ed.' Hodgkins on East River street was discovered on fire between the ceiling and roof, caused by a defective flue. An alarm was turned in, and the department responded very promptly, but the fire was put out by a bucket brigade before the engine arrived. DR. A. J. THOMPSON DENTIST.
