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 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

The discoveries of the Klondike miners

important, the ore being somewhat slml-

spects like the lirst .very high grades

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

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

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-.
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.

Reports of Immense Wealth in
, iSiglil. Doubtless' Much
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.

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-

Great Gold Deposits, but Small
Item in Country's Mineral
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.
