Former Live Silver Camps Near
Helena Will Return to Their Former Glory. Helena, Nov. 28.—One of Montana's oldest gold mines, originally known as the Wliitlach, and now called the Court House, which is located five miles south of Helena, will again be operated. Yes teday the Silvery Spray Mining & Mill ing Co. took over the property, which has been held by the Montana Gold Con solidated Mining company. The mine is one of the sensational producers of the Helena district and is said to have given up to its workers more than $5,(XX),000 in gold. Work will be started at the Court House at once. A small force of uen will be put to work within the next i'ew days and will be gradually increased. If necessary, as many as 50 men will be employed at the mine getting out ore. Reliable information has reached the offices of the Montana Mining associa tion that D. C. Walker is about to re open the old Elkhorn mine. The Elk liorn was, in its day, one of the biggest silver producers in the country. Its ore shoots were at once the wonder and the admiration of mining men from all over the I'nited States. When the mine was operating Elk horn was one of the livest camps in the state. It boasted a large pay roll, hun dreds of employes being steadily on the job. The pay shoots which were opened from time to time netted splendid re turns. The low price to which silver dropped caused the mine to close. At the time of the shut-down, so it is re ported. a new shoot had been broken into which promised to rival in produc tion any of those previously mined. Handred Thousand Pounds of Gobbler Consumed in Mining City on Thanksgiving. Butte, Nov. 28.—Approximately 100, 000 pounds of turkey, representing an expenditure of nearly $50,000, graced the festive boards of Kutte people Thanksgiving day, according to esti mates of buyers for local wholesale houses. The estimate is considered a conservative one. but is less than half of the estimate of the 1918 Thanksgiving day sales. Fewer turkeys were sold this year than last year because of the increase in prices, the dealers stated. Most of the birds sold for from 45 cents to 48 cents a pound, No. 1 grade. The de mand at this price was easily supplied, but it was impossible to sell the birds cheaper, according to the supply houses. The average Butte family of five per sons paid approximately $0.95 for its Thanksgiving dinner, a local chef esti mated Thursday afternoon. Here is thtj way he figured it: Soup, 25 cents; salad, 75 cents; turkey, S3.50; cranberry sauce, 'M cents; celery, .'<5 cents; potatoes, 25 cents; dressing. 25 cents; dessert, 50 cents; coffee, 25 cents; bread and butter, 55 cents. Total, $6.95. RUE O.K. SOMETIMES, Chicago Magazine Writer Hires One to Watch His Daughter and a Mllionaire. Chicago Tribune Nperlal Dispatch to Great Fall« Daily Tribune. t Chicago, Nov. 28.—The next time that Cullen A. Cain hires a private detective to watch his daughter—but no, Mr. Cain promised his daughter today that next time there would be no private detec tives. For private detectives, Mr. Cain has decided, are apt. like fathers, to be blessed with too large imaginations. Meanwhile the private detective him self is wondering whether the John T. Milliken of St. Louis, whose red racer he has tracked for three days, is the John T. Milliken whose father, famous St. Louis capitalist, died less than a year ago leaving $30,000,000 made in the Golden Cycle mine at Cripple «'reek, Colo., and in the Milliken Chemical com pany. Mr. Cain refuses to identify the rich youth who he decreed should not marry his daughter as the heir to the St. Louis millions. His daughter also refuses to talk. The supposed millionaire himself cannot be reached. Is Maoazlne Writer. Mr. Cain is a magazine writer who lives at 741 Cornelia avenue. Gwendolyn is his daughter, has been for IS winters. She went to school last winter in St. Louis and met there the youthful owner of the red racer and the name famous in the financial columns of Colorado and Missouri. Mr. Milliken entered Chicago three days ago, preceded by a telegram to Gwendolyn, and the private detective entered at the same time. Mr. Cain instructed his sleuth that his daughter was not to be molested— linless she started for Crown Point, Ind. The private detective tracked the couple to two leather chairs in the lobby of the Hotel Sherman. It looked suspicious. Moreover, the red racer out by the curb stone looked as though it could travel. It could travel much faster, the private detective decided, than any might hire. It Ends Well. So lie asked Mr. Milliken from St. Louis and his employer's danghter to step over to Central detail station. They did. The next arrival was Mr. Cain. The next was his attorney, Daniel R. Forbes. There were explanations, tears, apolo gies. Mr. Cain went back home. Gwen dolyn went with him. Mr. Milliken went Lack to the Hotel Sherman, and the pri vate detective, paid in advance, returned to his office. P. S.—They hadn't intended to go to Crown Point. They were about to go to the north side for dinner. taxicab lie I j j LEAVES FOR VISIT IN MIDDLEWEST STATES Special to The Daily Tribune. Chinook, Nov. 28.—Miss Margaret Reed, daughter of Col. Jas.

FERGUS COIL VEINS IRE BEING TAPPED Coal Deposits Hitherto Merely Scratched Are Now Being Brought to Front. Special to The Daily Tribune. Lewistown, Nov. 28.—Not only are the coal mines of this vicinity that have for years been working on a small scale greatly increasing their output as a re sult of the coal shortage, but several new coal deposits are being opened up. All of these are big enough to make regular, though small shipments, and some of them have very promising veins, both as to size and quality of the coal, so that indirectly the strike is doing some good. By the time normal condi tions are restored with respect to fuel three or four new mines on Moore and Beaver creek will be working while some, of the excellent deposits in the Wini fred country will also be under opera tion. Magistrate of Butte Places the Taboo on Games for Candy Butte. Nov. 28.—In future, gambling games which may be played for candy or cigars, or any other articles having a commercial value, will be regarded as sufficient cause for the arrest, of the participants, according to a dictum hand ed down by Judge Grimes of the munici pal court. "This court can see no moral differ ence between the games which are played for money and those which are played for the equivalent of money," says the judge. "Therefore, my decision in such cases will hereafter be identical." The ruling, it is believed, will bring within the purview of the court prac tically every poolroom and soft drink parlor in the city, if it is rigidly en I forced. It is pointed out by those who see things through a viewpoint at va riance with the judge that there are 1 hundreds of law-abiding men in the city who play cards or pool for fun, but who like to have some small token in the balance in order to keep up interest. It is argued, from this viewpoint, that the statement of Judge Grimes is draw ing a rather Puritan line. I ] I i ! ' Livingston Businessmen Peti tion Executive to Seize and Operate Collieries.

Stewart is urged in a telegram sent from Livingston to the capital this afternoon by representatives of al! local business houses. Continuing, the telegram states; "This community is confronted with the most acute fuel famine ever faced by people. Many families are ulready suf fering from the or" tain temporary re' and schools will have to be closed. Those not interested in the profits of the coal operators will stand back of you to a man.

Special to The Daily Tribune. Harlem, Nov. 28.—Figuri'ig the returns from the land at 10 per cem ou the in vestment the irrigated mod-! of the famous Milk river vallev arc worth $900 to §1.000 per acre. These figures have just been revealed b\ two prominent farmers, who raise alfalfa, in thcli annual report to the reclamation service tfbJch is taking a census of the product« grown under reclaimed hmds under the -Milk river project. Thomas M. Everett, who has a field of 200 acres of alfalfa reports that this year his crop went four tons to the acre for ha^ and that he has sold the whole crop in the stack for $23 per ton. bringing him $18,400 or an average of $92 per acre. James Rannel, who had in 200 acres of alfalfa let his crop go to seed. From this crop ho threshed 700 bushels of Grimm alfalfa seed which he sold for $21 per bushel; 200 bushels of common seed which he sold for $10 per bushel and he has left 300 tons of alfalfa straw which he is selling at $15 per ton. His total income will be $21,200 or an average of $106 per acre. Every foot of the Miik river valley which is properly farmed can be made to firoduee in a similar manner^ when the and is brought under irrigation, and a movement has been started by the Harlem Development association to push all irrigation projects so that, the whole Chinook unit of the Milk river irrigation project can be brought under water. With the St. Mary's water supply now turned into the Milk river the Milk river project has the best and most stable water light in the state of Montana. The drouth of the past season gave it the I severest possible test. The source of water for most every other irrigation project in the state dried up during the season when water was most needed, but there never was a shortage of water for irrigation purposes in the Milk river. As a result the irrigated lands of the. Milk river valley have produced the greatest crops in years. According to the movement which has been started an irrigation district will be created on the north side of Miik river this winter which will water all the land between Rohman and Harlem and the people east of Harlem are proposing to have the Harlem ditch extended clear down to Coburg which will add about lO.Otk) acres. The Harlem Water T'sers association purchased a large dredge last summer which has been working continuously and is still in operation enlarging their main canal. New stock holders have been taken into the company increasing the capital to $100.000 and next summer it is ex pected to water 3,000 acres more than 1 ^ ast year. There has been a great deal of activity in the valley this fall in building new I lateral ditches and improving the old ] ones. The cold weather coming on I earlier than was expected stopped a i great deal of this improvement works. ! Several farmers who have come under ' the irrigation project are planning on ; installing large centrifugal pumps for I pumping water on their nigh ground so as to get all their land under production. It is estimated that at least 50 per cent more land will be under water nest spring in and around Ilarlem. Several Make Filings Upon Grazing Lands Special to The Daily Tribune. Chinook.
