MINNESOTA OHJEAB IS BEATEN Season Was Two Weeks Late, but There Is an Increase of Min nesota Shipments. - Business Later Hay Not Hold Out on Account of Eastern Labor -, " * troubles. pecia) to The Journal' Duluth, Minn,, June 5.-rAltho iron ore shipments did nqt begin until two weeks later than in 1902. there is an increase now over last year's record, so far as Minnesota Is concerned. Up to this time the s$ate has shipped this year more than 8,0*0,000 gross tons,which is an increase of about 150,000 for the corresponding perloa of the previous year. This would appear to indicate a larger shipment than for the full year of 1002. but Iron ore shippers and mining companies are doubtful if their early estimates of heavy business for the season will be fulfilled. There will be a decreased consumption on account of the labor troubles among building trades in the east. The Great Northern road has decided not to build its contemplated extensions on the far western Mesaba range. These extensions were to mines that will not be - . opened this year, and perhaps not fbr some time to come, and the road does not care to build in advance of traffic. - Exploring State Lands. The Zenith Furnace company of Duluth, which has been exploring for a long time on the eastern Mesaba, Is opening two mines there and will provide a large part of the ore its furnaces will use. It is try ing to find ore on state lands, as this ore, tinder state laws, virtually gives the com pany smelting it in this state a bonus of from 45 to 50 cents a ton of pig iron. This is effected by a rebate of the entire state royalty on ore mined on state school lands and smelted in Minnesota. As it is Impossible for the legislature to take from the school funds any moneys due them, ic will bo necessary to appropriate from the general fuhds to cover into the school fund any deficit caused by these rebates. In the Cheshire district, Marquette range of Michigan, there is a wild boom among those who have recently taken lands from the government and original settlers, over expected discoveries of iron. Bo far no ore has been found but by the Cleveland Cliffs Iron company, which is commencing to open a mine, but others will probably go in there. There is no foundation for the boom now on, which covers larger areas than ore may possibly be found under. Baraboo Section All Right. In the Baraboo section, where the Deer lng Harvester company has been working for some time, indications are excellent and it is now assured that much ore will be found The Deerlng company, which is operating under the name of the "Illinois Mining company," has just closed a lease for 400 acres that it has been exploring and has paid a large Bum in advance roy alties. It la under contract to mine not less than 20,000 tons a year, and will prob ably take out far more for its South Chi cago furnaces and steel plant. There are reports of ore discoveries on the far western Mesaba, much off the gen erally accepted trend of the formation. Little is really known of the trend of the ore bearing district there, and it would not be astonishing If it should be found to swing in the direction indicated by these reported finds. If it does, the possibilities for renewed explorations In a district now disregarded, are good. Not a Strong Bear Argument. Iron ore on dock at lower lake ports this season was about 3,600,000 gross tons, the largest amount ever known, and about twice the tonnage there at the corres ponding period of 1900. It is, however, little more than proportionately greater than In previous years, and is not at all the bear argument that it has been twis ted into. The facts are that of every two tons landed on Lake Erie docks dur ing a season of navigation, one ton goes -to furnaces and the other remains at the dock for later withdrawal, and this pro portion remains fairly constant, while ' with the annual increase In shipment the actual amount on dock every winter and spring is naturally larger than the year before. Some of the Corrigan mines in Crystal Falls have been abandoned, probably per manently, and the company will make a larger tonnage from othprs they are open ing in that district. The old Nanaimo mine, Menominee range, that has been Idle for many years, . has been leased bv interests connected with the United Slates Steel corporation and will be pumped out Immediately and explored thoroly. It is likely to prove a surprise to the pessimists. CLUBBED THE MAIL CARRIER Jaskoa, the Russian, In Jail at Fergus Falls in Default of Ball. FERGUS FALLS. MINN.Steve Jaskoa was Wrought from Mocrbead yesterday to await the action ot the grand Jury at the coming term of the United States court on the charge of robbing Michael J, Gaffney. a rural mail carrier on the route between Morrris and Patchen. Jaskoa Is # Russian. He is a dark, spare little man. with a mat of black hair, a thick black mustache and bright, villainous-looking eyes His bail has been fixed at $10,000, but his appearance does not Indicate that be has ever seen that many cents. The evidence developed at the preliminary staring was to the effect that Gaffney. a boy of 15. was driving along the road and overtook Jas koa, who insisted upon riding with him. altho he objected vigorously. The boy attempted to turn his pony at a crossroad, and Jaskoa insisted that he go straight ahead The boy turned, whereupon Tasxoa leaped from the cart, seized a club and struck him over the head, knocking him from the cart. He then seized the reins and drove away. He passed thru several villages without making any effort to conceal the sack, and on reaching Moorhead entered a saloon to secure a drink and the police were notified and made the arrest He had cut open the msll sack, but found nothine ot value. The penalty for his crime under the federal statutes is impiiwonment for life, and as he has been positively identified he is likely to receive the limit, unless he escapes on the ground of in- FRIDAY EVENING, LAKE CITY PREPARING Encampment Season at Lakeview Open June 15.

D., June 5.The second wall of the big Columbus vein has finally been reached by the Columbus Consolidated Gold Mining company, and the width has been determined at 247 feet. This is the most gigantic ore body ever found in the Black Hills except the vein in the Home stake mine itself. The achievement of the Columbus com pany Is one of the most important since mining began in the Black Hills. The mammoth new vein was reached in a westerly crosscut from an old drift, driven in a southerly direction from the main shaft, on the 200-foot level, years ago. The hill rises rapidly southerly from the shaft, which gives the point of opening on the vein its greater depth. It Is solid ore for 247 feet, and except the last thirty feet, when the values seem to have fallen away perceptibly, the ore possesses a general average of approxi mately $5 a ton. There is no question in the minds of mining men that it is a prolongation of one of the Homestake system of veins. The ore is identical in character, and the vein is a true fissure, cutting the slate formation just as it does in the Homestake mine itself, thereby dis pelling all fears that it may be only a "gash" vein between two bodies of slate. The ore is free milling, and much of it pans freely. ,IOWA'.-^The democratic county delegates to the state convention are Joe Gelster. A Solon. Mr. MeOianflaban, J. Carrol.
