Northwestern Mines
Iron Ore Lake Shipments Will Be
About 20,000,000 Tons.
Milwaukee Road's First Year in the
. Traffic a, Surprise to the
Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Minn., Sept. 27.—1t is evident
that more than 20,000,000 tons can be
moved down the lakes during the year it
so desired, and the probable total may be
set at about that figure. •. This is nearly
1,000,000 tons more than -was shipped by
both lake and rail last year. Rail ship
ments have not been large this year.
There is no cessation of the Immense en
ergy displayed in moving ore, and the full
fleet seems to be engaged in that trade.
Delays incident to weather are to be
reckoned with from now out, but these '
may serve to remove the detentions from
docks, so there may be little difference in
the time of ships.
Much work is planned for the coming
winter at upper lake ports in Improving
dock facilities. The Wisconsin Central
dock at Ashland is to be rebuilt at a cost
of about $100,000, and raised to a height
of sixty feet. Head of the lakes roads
will spend large sums. The Milwaukee
road is to greatly increase its ore dock
capacity at Escanaba, where it built a
small dock a year ago. The road's first
year of ore traffic has surprised the trade.
It Is claimed it will handle 1,000,000 tons
this season, and that contracts are being
made that will lead to a far larger share
of the Menominee range business in 1902.
The company is assisting owners of new
properties and explorations in return for
traffic contracts, much after the manner of
the Eastern Minnesota upon the Mesaba
range, and with much the same success.
Some new exploration will be started
this fall on all ranges. This is by no
means confined to the large companies,
though they will do much. Even the YerI-
million range, which has been avoided by
all explorers for some time, will share
In the interest under changed conditions.
Large Producers Another Year.
Several new mines of the Menominee,
notably the Bristol, Monongahela, Bird,
Tobin, Armenia, Baltic and Vivian, are
looking well, and some of them give prom
ise of importance. Mansfield, Columbia
and Great Western are being developed by
the adition of much new equipment and
with new and deeper shafts, etc., will be
large producers another year.
Since the Stevenson mine started ship
ping this esason with one 100-ton steam
•hovel in ore it has shipped about 350,000
tons. A second shovel of the same class
has just been received and all efforts are
being made to carry out the expected total
for the year. Three large shovels are em
ployed in the stripping here. Electria
haulage systems are being installed at
several of the Consolidated company's
mines at Hibbing, and the system will be
•xtended to mines of the group. Three
shovels are stripping at the Fayal mine,
and an important enlargement of the open
pit will be made the coming winter. This
mine will maintain its record as the chief
shipper 1 in the lake region.
The company is now taking 250 cars of
ore from Iron Mountain daily, twenty
from Quinnesec, twenty from the Antoine
and seventy-five from Crystal Falls. In
addition to these it is building tracks to
new properties and is said to be finan
cially interested in several explorations,
at least to the extent of traffic. It has
900 60-ton wood ore cars built last win
ter, but has been compelled to use a lot
of small cars on hand from old times and
to rent many from the Soo line. It will
build 1,000 more 50-ton cars the coming
Mar^uette Range Shipments.
Shipments from the Marquette range
have not been as large as hoped and
stockpiles remain that will undoubtedly
continue into the winter. So taxed is the
Cleveland Cliffs company for room for
piling and so meagre are the shipments
that the company will haul its ore to
its docks and stockpile beside them, thus
relieving the situation at the mines and
permitting work to continue underground.
Negaunee mines are doing better and are
cleaning up their stocks. The Champion
Iron company is sinking a shaft in the
new find made a short time ago and from
which so much is hoped. E. F. Bradt has
Becured an option on the old Erie mine,
near Republic, and is working there with
a good force. There are two shafts down
200 feet that will be unwatered at once.
There are reports of discoveries of orte
on the Penokee range, west of the de
veloped Gogebic, and numerous local com
panies have been formed to explore. Most
of the news printed about what has been
found In the way of Iron is exaggerated
The Penokee has come in for this sort of
excitement many times in the past twenty
They Examine Methods and Ma-
chinery on Northern Ranges.
Special to The Journal.
. Ouhith, Minn., Sept. 27.—G-. A. Richards
and H. !B. Seal, chief engin-eers for the
greet Mount Morgan gold mines, in Tas
mania, among the greatest mines in the
world, have been here this week looking
over mining methods.
They visited the big! mines of the Cop
per country, when they inspected the
enormous hoisting plants. Then they went
to the Menominee range and finally came
hore to see the methods of steam shovel
operation on the Mesaba range. They
canie to get some idea of the enormous
machinery equipment of Lake Buperior
mines and will probably place some very
hea<vy orders for American machinery for
Australia before going home.
First In the Hills Put in by Chicago

Special to The Journal.
• Ouster, S. D., Sept. —A complete elec
tric drilling: plant has been purchased by
the Chicago Mica company,. which is
•working on the Crown mica mine,: north
of this city. The plant was purchased
in Denver and it will be the ■ first using
electricity for power in. the Hills. A shaft
is to be sunk to some depth, in order to
mine the mica more easily. The mica is '
shipped' to the company's works at Valpa
raiso, Ind., where It Is sorted 1 and made
up into marketable shape. The company
ha» been agitating the question of start
ing,up other mica mine*. in the. county and

term of two years for the mica as It comes
from the mines. The management says
that Black Hills mica Is especially well
adapted to electrical purposes.
Toe North Star mine, seven miles
northwest of this city, is turning out to
be one of the most remarkable proposi
tions in the southern Hills. A shaft
has been sunk 300 feet and numerous
drifts and tunnels have been run in line
with the formation and cutting it east and
west, and It is said four strong ledges
have been encountered in this work. The
ore has a very high average, it being an
nounced that across the face of a 30-foot
ledge the ore has repeatedly gone better
than $40 a ton gold. The company,
backed by Omaha capitalists, has now de
cided to continue the shaft to the 600-foot
level and work on the extension will
comm«Mo soon. It is proposed to devel
op the mine thoroughly and then erect a
plant of some sort.
A big deal is said to be pending for the
Globe mine, which adjoins the North Star
property on the south. The mem ledge
is large and runs from $6 to $30 a ton
North of the North Star mine is the
property that is being developed by the
Saglnavv company of Yale, Mich. This
company will also put in electric drills
and a steam hoisting plant. A 500-foot
shaft is to be sunk and a plant built ac
cording to the tests that were made last
week on a carload of the ore sent to Den
ver. The company has purchased a ranch
and additional mining ground.
Fortunes Upon Fortunes to Be Made
Says an Expert.
Special to The Journal.
Tacoma. Wash., Sept. 27.—The lumber
and shipping interests of Washington are
not the only investments that are attract
ing the attention of eastern capitalists,
according to the belief of J. H. Schively,
deputy state insurance commissioner, and
W. A. Nichols, assistant secretary of
state, who have just returned from an ex
tended tour of the larger eastern cities.
They say that eastern capitalists are a3
much interested in the mining develop
ment of this state as they are in any
other avenue of investment.
;As proof of the opinions of many of j
those who are watching Washington with j
interest, a letter is shown which has been I
■pretty generally handed through one of I
the largest insurance offices of New York j
city and has attracted comment. The
letter was written by Charles H. Eck
erson, a prominent mining expert who
was sent into this country to report on
several mining properties, and is dated
from Index and addressed to one of the
leading insurance actuaries of New York.
"I have walked thirty-two miles in the
last two days, wa3 nearly drowned in
the Sauk river and-got stuck on the top j
of a mountain, but I've seen the finest
showing of low-grade copper ore carry
ing gold and silver that I have ever run
across. It is not right here at Index,
but in a brand new district. It is going j
to make a bigger camp than Butte, Mont. )
I just tell you there are fortunes on |
fortunes to be made in this country. The
mineral wealth is simply wonderful, but
capital is lacking."
On the strength of this letter, one of
the principal officers of one of the lead- j
ing life insurance companies is said to be
contemplating heavy investments in the
mines of the district referred to.

Gold Estates Company of the Bound-
ary Will Put One In.
Special to The Journal.
Rat Portage, Ont., Sept. 27.—The man
agement of the Anglo-Canadian Gold Es
tates company is so well pleased with the
results of the development work on its
Seine river concession that it has decided
to put in a ten-stamp mill. The ore in
shafts, drifts and cross-cuts is of such
high value as to justify this action. Alan
Sullivan is the local manager.
The Ontario Gold Mine company has
been developing its property near the
Mikado mine under the direction of C. E.
Field. A new shaft was recently com
menced with one shift and a night shift
has just been put on. Colonel Engledue,
the managing director of the company, is
expected to arrive from England shortly.
A strong syndicate of New Jersey capi
talists has formed a company to exploit
undeveloped properties in the Lake of
the "Woods gold fields. They have ac
quired a lafrge block of very promising
mineral land on Clytie bay, near the
Mikado mine, on which it is their inten
tion to commence work immediately.
H. Proudlock has commenced work on a
contract to sink 100 feet and drift 100
feet on a property near Camp bay. The
Alice A. mine has been bonded by an
English syndicate and its further devel
opment and opreatiou are to be vigor
ously prosecuted.

Movement to Make Episcopal Canon
as Stringent as" That of ~
the Catholic*.
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Sept. 27C—"Many young couples
who are members of churches marry now
adays with a realization that if | their
marital ties prove uncongenial they can
easily be dissolved. This is a continu
ous polygamy, tolerated by the nation and,
the churches and accepted by society." '
Bishop John McKim of Toklo, who has
charge of the- Episcopal diocese of Japan,
made the foregoing statement in discuss
ing the question of tolerating divorces in
the Episcopal church. Bishop McKim
and, Key. F. R. Graves, bishop of Shang
hai,- stopped \in { Chicago on their : way to
San Francisco, where they will attend the
annual convention of the Episcopal
church. The question of chief interest
which .will come before . the convention
will be a canon changing the ecclesiastical
rules concerning divorce. Many of the
leading bishops, rectors, curates and lay
men ,of the church favor increasing the
stringency, of ! the > canons until .'they are
practically as prohibitive of divorce ias
those of the Roman Catholic church. The
proposed canon has already been drafted
and ; generally; discussed among the dele
gates ;preparatory to ; its presentation ?to
the r convention. •:: Said 1 Bishop McKim:
- : The new canon aims to do away with di
vorces in the church ■ and will be practically
the same as the one which ha* existed in the
Roman Catholic "church : for some ' time. At
present too '■ much responsibility is thrown
upon the bishop of the diocese. By restrict
ing divorces, persons will be made less anx- ,
ious to rush into matrimony without con
sidering the responsibilities which will follow
or the sacredn«sß of the step which they are
taking. There should be a national law con
cerning divorce.
Former Aldermen Begin Suit to Re
cover Back Fay.
Special to The Journal.
Dubuque, lowa, Sept. 27.-« Nine alder
men who served the city in 1896 have
each entered suit to recover $400 salary
with interest at 6 per cent. The total
amount of the claims, with interest, is
over $4,000.
In 1895 the council raised the salary
to $500, and the members were indicted
and tided on the charge of violating the
law which prohibits councilmen from rais
ing their salaries while in office, but gives
them the power to fix salaries for a future
council. The case was tried before Judge
Waterman, and he ruled they had the
right to take the extra money which they
had voted.
When the claimants succeeded this
council there was a great deal of talk
about the "salary grab," and a motion was
adopted that they draw $300 a year "on
account." Claimants contend that the
salary was $500 when they went into office
and they have decided to make an effort
to get the $400 and interest alleged to
be due.

It I* Exposed to View Despite Hl*
Son's Protest.
Springfield, 111., Sept. 27.—1n spite of
the protest of his only child, the body of
Abraham Lincoln was exposed to the light
yesterday. In the presence of a small as
semblage of men and 'women, the metallic
casket, which for more than thirty-six
years has contained the remains of the
president, was forced open. .
Each of the party present gazed upon
the features made familiar by plate print.
Then the casket was resealed and placed
in what is intended to be its final resting
place—a bed of iron masonry, fifteen feet
below the base of the shaft of the national
Lincoln monument.
Just who was responsible for the open
ing of the caaket in spite of the avowed
opposition of Robert Lincoln, Is difficult
to ascertain. It is generally admitted by
those present, however, that the propo
sition to expose the body met with vig
orous protest, and that it was only after
considerable discussion that this course
was resolved upon. Then everyone In the
assemblage was pledged to secrecy re
garding the proceedings.
But those among the party who saw in
the desire to open the casket only a
morbid curiosity of their neighbors were
so shocked) by the exposure that they are
now openly denouncing the act. The
heavy leaden covering of the casket was
chiseled open with plumber's tools.
Five of the sixteen persons in the as
semblage were present when the coffin
was opened fourteen years ago. After a
brief exposure, the casket was sealed
