1 1 Mines and Mining-Activities in Ore DistrigteofU I KLONDIKE IBS H Experienced Prospectors Hc- H lievc Jarhidge Has Bright I ALREADY 0X15 MURDER INT NEW GOLD CAMP H Companies Preparing for Ac- H tive Development Work H This Summer. TWIN FALLS. Ida.. March p. Former Klondike miners report llic discovery of another rich section of Ihe Jarbidgc dls trlct. ten miles cast of the Bourno lodge. and nt Die extreme head of ihe oast fork of Brnnonu river. That this result was to follow the prospecting of the territory 1 east of Jarbidgc gulch has been a fore- gone conclusion, in Ihe llpht of tho knowledge gained bo far hy the nilnois working In this region of such values, alongside the numerous dykes which cut through It from cast to west and Inter sect contacts extending northwest to southeast. Strikes of the Klondike confirm the beliefs expressed by W. A. Stevens, the California expert and first technical man to visit Jarbidgc gulch Im mediatolv following the discoveries made 1 by D. A. Bourne last fall. Stevens du- 1 dared then that Ihe trend of ibo dykes was to t ho east, perhaps as much as twenty miles, and throughout this area there would be found ground equally as promising for gold as the Jarbldgo itself. Less than a. woek ago. B. F. Koblson found, four miles south of what is known H as Hoblson's Hole (whore he had mado .several locations three months since. H which are already attracting mauy pros- 1 pectors), a very rich red rock In the H dvkes which cut the formation, and Is 1 similar In all respects to the samples of 1 S4000 on; left among tho assets of. tho 1 sheoptondcr. Jacob Islmm. whose loca- ' lions were never found until this winter. 1 Koblson here discovered the old shovel that Islmm Is known to have worked 1 with, as well as other tools that he used. These were cached in the dyke from H which Koblson procured samples that 1 tally exactly with records of the sheep- men who took charge of the elTccts ot Isliam after he died, twenty years ago. IUl)lson Is credited now by everybody re I turning here, from Jarbidgc with having H found the famous Lost Shcepherdcr s H mines of southern Idaho, which if. how- H ever. In northern Nevada, just about seven miles south of tho state line. A rush has started in that direction, not only from Twin Falls, but Jarbidgc. also. H Ledge Is Bonanza. A few miles north of Robisou's Hole. discoveries have attracted 200 to 30(1 pros pertors within the last threw weeks, ami this point Is also about ten miles north east of Jarbidgc. The immediate vieln Itv of the Lost Shccphcider's mine, now I 1 disclosed as a bonanza ledge, standing I about sixty feel high and forty in width. I shows much gold fn Hie pannings. P.obl- H son has not named the place, but is said H to have hastened to Brimoau, where he is holding conferences with men who had ' grubstaked him In. Samples of the ledge. according to men who are hero from tliat VIcinitv. and who have seen the ore, will easily carry $700 to $1000 per ton. The discoveries of the Klondike miners H are also regarded as being equally as important, the ore being somewhat slml- lar In character to the Sheepherdcr's H ledge. It looks, however. In many re- spects like the lirst .very high grades taken out of the .lumbo property in C.old- field at the surfac. These strikes have expanded the likely territory of tho Jar- bldge district to abotit ten miles cast and west, as against two miles thrco monUis H ago. Tlicre is also a' st.rlke reported H thr5p miles west of .Inrbldgo gulch. In a H silver-lead belt, however, which Ik not spcclnllv appealing to the gold seekers. Among the Klondlkers. whose camp Is at the extreme head of the Llttlo Bru- iiean. is .lack Glllivln. who is In Twin Falls with samples which are showing spUndld vnlues of .50 to $350 per ton. He secured a piece of lloat. that Is. he H declared merely a fracture from one of tho ledges, that carries one-third Its 1 contents In tho yellow metal. He said he lias not had time to search out the I pnrtlculnr ledge It camo from. as. with I his partners, he has bien busy during the last live weeks mailing locations. Oilier Klondlkers In that crowd are H. Tuffty. 1 Fred Buck and K. II- Woodean. All spent ten to tlfteen years In Alaskan I fields, and they declare they have never 1 seen so promising a district as Jarbidgc. on the whole. "The principal ledge we found, ' Gilli 1 vln said.

Among the suc cessful lmsintss men who liavo conio io Salt Lake of Infer years is Van P. Spalding, who is a ranch owner, busi ness man ami iniii inr expert. Mr. .Spalding is a Mich igan man and was horn in Mnnron in JS(K(. Whop ii years Van D. Spalding oi ago ins fatlier , , removed with tho family lo Montana, Iho trip up tho Missouri rivor hy boat, oi'cupving seven weeks, when Fort Bcnfon was reached, then by I rain lo Madison county, where flic famil' located. In 1S7I Mr. Spalding re turned (0 his old homo in Michigan, where ho attended school until lSSo, when ho returned to Montana and engaged in ranching. Lalor ho turned his nttenfim to mining, having a love for ecology, lie removed to Salt . Lake in 100G. Short I3- after ho was married and ho resides with his fam ily in a beautiful homo at .'121 ft street. Mr. Spaldincr is interested in the Spalding-Livingston Investment company, tho Goldfield Daisy Mining company and the Irrigated Lands company. SAMUEL K 1 H If II PARIS Prominent Utaliu Will Xot Re turn (o Salt Lake as fcJoon as Expected. Contrary to general expectation Samuel New-house, builder, will not return to Utah in tho near future, he having sailed Sat-, urday morning for Europe, his special destination being Paris, where his brother, .Molt Newhousc. Is very III. Mr. Newhousc had anticipated visiting the Ely district in tho near future, It being his desire lo see partcularly the Ely Centennial property, in which he be came Interested some months ago. After his arrival in New York City, however. Mr. New-house altered his plans and the Information of his sailing for the "othor side" was received In this city through private dispatches. Mr. Newhousc will probably nut be long gone, be having numerous building enterprises under way In this citv which require his attention, besides other business matters of Im-portam-n which await his disposal. The visit to Ely planned by Mr. New house and other prominent mining men will probably be taken at some later date, and If affairs shape up as anticipated, there will bo news of Importance coming as a result of the trip and Inspection. and Is a sillclficd quartz porphyry, most of the porphyry, however, having eroded, leaving the quartz exposed and render ing prospecting with v.ecess quite an easy taslc. L-ornuureri with other .countries I have vlfjlted." Gilllvln brought here at least 100 samples of his strike, and ex plains! that ho has named the gulch wherein himself and associates arc work ing, Alaska gulch, and says that a new town will soon spring up there. The rush to Jarbidgc continues through Twin Falls and the camp Is now enjoying tho con veniences of rooming houses and restau rants. ,Bob Byrno was killed by L. Miller there last Friday night, during a dispute over claims IX. A. Duchet, while pros pecting, fell over a cliff Into an extinct erater and. after dropping (100 feet, was burled In forty f'ct of snow. The body cannot be recovered until summer. Five different companies arc getting ready for vigorous development about April 1. when the snow Is expected to have disappeared and made work pos sible. San Francisco Mining Stocks.

TOOELE SMELTER IS IMB8 COMPLETION International People Are Ex erting Every Effort to Finish Plant. P.cporl from the new International smelting plant at Tooele Is to the effect that the big smokestack, one of the larg est In this western country, has boon completed, and that work along all lines of smeller construction is going ahead rapidly. Tho stack Just finished is some 350 fcot in height, and Is constructed to carry off satisfactorily tho smoko and fumes resulting from the smelling proc-. esses. Now that the weathor has moderated to a great extent. It Is stated that the International people contcmplato IiiL-reas-ing their working forces. In order that the plant may be rushed to completion. The management has quite reccntlv Is sued a statement to the effect that as per contract the smelter would be ready to receive the ores of the Utah Consol idated property as per contract, on April 1. and though during tho winter months operations were with difficulty carried on, a wonderful showing has been made. Some 600 men have been on the com pany's pay eVia in the building work for many months, and where delay hns boon experienced In one particular branch of the construction, the crews have been placed elsewhere In accomplishing some other results, and In consequence the past few weeks has seen wonderful prog ress made. The last of the steel for the big plant is duo to arrive at its destination bv the middle of the month; machinery Is ar riving, and being placed rapldlv. and everything considered conditions at the smelter arc very satisfactory.

CAMP POPULATING IN PIONEER STYLE Reports of Immense Wealth in , iSiglil. Doubtless' Much Exaggerated. Charles Gotsch, a well known mining man of this city, who has followed the gaiuf' in Utah and Nevada for mnny j ears past. Is a late arrival from the now Jurbidgr district In northern Nevada. .Mr. Getsrli has already made two trips Into tho new gold-seekers' mcccft, and he will return to camp next Tuesday to Invostl gato the Held more thoroughly and to get work .started on a number of claims whlfh he has located for the Interests he represents. Mr. Gelsch. though not ovcr-enlhuslas-tlc regarding the .Inrbldgo country, gives It as his opinion thnl It Is destined to be a big gold-milling dislrlel. "Thero Is no plcturo rock In tho district," said Mr. Gelsch to The Tribune Saturday after noon, "anil the reports of the sensational values which have boon given publicity are probably much exaggerated. There are, of course, senilis of high grade ore' on some of the el. Ims. but on an average It Is a free milling proposition, and un doubtedly tin; camp has much merit." Asked regarding the amount of snow In tho district. .Mr. Getsch stated that there Is probably about six inches in the camp proper, though in tho mountains there is of course much more plied up. There are about 700 people In the district now. he says, and prospectors and mining camp pioneers are going In in lnrgo num bers. The camp has already had a shooting scrape, in which one man was In stantly killed, ami the camp Is nllvc with the numerous phases of Industry which go to make up a "boom." Mr- Getsch reports having met several Salt Lako people In the district and all are staking out claims, and preparing to make "fortunes." As yet there Is com paratively little real development work under way. though the claim owners are making ready to start systematic work In the near future. Mr. Getsch. for his Interests, has taken up several miles of placer rights along the streams skirting the Jarbidgc dis trict. Boston Copper Market. James A.

WHEELER PROPERTY IS ' II BiE BODY Local Interests at Yerington Pieeeive Glad Tidings From Mine. Joseph T. Calno of this city has re ceived news of an encouraging nature from the property of the Wheeler Mining company, In which a number of local mlnlnK men are interested. The Wheel er Is located near Ycrlngton, Nov., In a very highly mineralized territory, and the late developments on the 200-foot level have resulted In tho. opening up of an elghteen-lnch ore body, which gives average assay returns of SGO.uO In gold per ton, and carries, besides this, some satisfactory silver values. Thu faulty formation, whicli has for some time been worked In. has now apparently been gone through, and tbf ore encountered In what Is thought to bi- a permanent location. The Wlmelor has long been considered, by those familiar with the property, a proposition of much promise, and now thai, the development work has proven productive of such encouraging results, those Interested are more determined than ever to continue work on a more extensive scale. Tho Ycrlngton district generally Is prollling by the Increased mining activ ity throughout Nevada, and particularly tills section, on account of the Increased railroad facilities, and the promised smelting plants, which will immediately prove of much benefit- Novadas in San Pranclsco.

When Alaska was purchased from Russia for $7,200,000 the truo value of the purchase was an unknown quantity to both purchaser mnd buyer, says the Min ing World. Although some gold had. been found. It was not until the discovery of placer gold in the Klondyke In 1S9G and of the rich beach sands at Nome that any true appreciation of Alaska's great mineral wealth began to be realized. Gold Is but one Item of the vast mineral riches now known to be held in the-rocks and sodlmentary deposits of this region. The Immunse deposits of copper and coal have been and are the subject of wide Interest, and are attracting much capital to the country. Minerals carrying silver, lead, tin. Iron. tungsten, antimony, quicksilver, graphite nnrl other Impor tant metals,' are found. Among Important non-metallic minerals also Included, are graphite, petroleum, gypsum and marble. Although at present the principal efforts are being directed to the exploitation of gold and copper de posits, altention will certainly be given to the deposits of other ores In an Increas ing degree as transportation facilities are Improved and gronter knowledge Is ob tained of these deposl;. With the entrance of the Guggenhclms Into the copper-mining fields of the re gion and the undertaking of the con struction of the Copper River railroad from Cordovn. Impetus was given to the development of Alaska's mineral re sources. These evidences of faith of powerful mining Interests In Alaska's fu ture are an encouragement lo other In vestors, not only In mining, but In other ventures necessary to and arising from the development of the country.
