The machinery in the Cokedale
mines, according to a correspondent,
is nearly all ready for shipment and
in about two weeks the camp will be
entirely deserted.

Some of the new equipment for the
Copper Chief mine, at Silver Star, has
arrived, and the work of installation
began last week. The company re
cently purchased three carloads of
machinery, and within a month the
property will be running on a larger
scale than ever before. Considerable
development work has been done on
the Copper Chief within the past few
months, but owing to lack of proper
equipment the management was un
able to go ahead with the operations
in the proper manner. Water has
been encountered in the main shaft,
but the pumps will soon be in place,
and the company will commence tak
ing out ore in earnest.—Twin Bridges

People from Wickes and Corbin re
port excellent conditions in that min
ing district. It is a first class mining
region and while little attention has
been attracted to it in recent years,
yet there are always a few shipments
of ore going out; not from big prop
erties making large shipments, but
what answers really a better purpose
—several small properties that pro
duce pay ore with an occasional ship
ment. Several properties to the south
and west of Wickes and Corbin are
looking fine and will be good produc
ers, and to the east, over towards
Beavertown, Mr. Bird of Salt Lake
has made a sufficiently good showing
with his diamond drill that he has op
erated there during the last summer,
to warrant further exploration and he
is now about to install machinery for
sinking a shaft to a depth of 500 feet
or more.

The Durand mines at Flint are again
being operated and some high grade
silver ore is being taken out. Work
was started some time ago and last
week quite an important strike wai
made at a point near the original dis
covery where a shaft is now being
sunk to open up what has the appear
ance of being quite a good sized shoot
of high grade ore. Some shipping ore
is also being taken out of the tunnel
where most of the high grade ore was
mined some years ago. It appears
there is quite a bunch of ore that was
overlooked, being probably mistaken
for the hanging wall and left stand
ing. The property is said to be show
ing up fine and may be operated ex
tensively in the future. For several
years it had been practically idle. It
is owned by the Durand estate and
consists of a group of nine claims.
The work is being done under the di
rection of Mrs. Millie Durand, ex
ecutrix.
It is reported that F. A. Heinze has
practically secured control of the old
Blue Bird company's property, three
miles west of Butte, and will soon be
gin its development, says the Boston j
Financial News. The property has
not been operated by the Blue Bird
company since 1893. The ore is silver
gold, but the main workings are said
to contain copper. The Blue Bird,
which was an English corporation,
had a 90-stamp mill, with which it
treated the output of the mines, but
the plant has been torn down and
sold. The Statis says F. A. Heinze is
buying claims in the Basin district of
Jefferson county, Montana, and it is
rumored that he intends to equip the
old smelting plant of the Basin and
Bay State company in Basin and op
erate in conjunction with his Basin
concentrator, his Lexington property
in Butte, and other undeveloped
claims he has in Jefferson county.
A company composed of Richard A.
Lacey, A1 Frank, W. D. Gibson, Chas.
Allen and Jack Bock of Butte, has
been recently organized for the pur
pose of working copper properties lo
cated at the head of McHessor creek,
in the Ruby range. Charles Allen and
W. D. Gibson came over this week and
while here leased anjl bonded the
Eureka and North Star claims from B.
F. Morris and John Mailey of Blaine,
and the Bright and Morning Star from
Fred Ramey. In each instance the
lease is for two and one-half years,
and the bond calls for the payment of

SHERIFF'S SALE.
W. S. Smith and H. P. Brooks, Plain
tiffs. versus Homer V. Turner, Hen
ry Trilling and C. V. Patterson, De
fendants.
To be sold at Sheriff's Sale on Wed
nesday, the 23rd day of May, A. D.
1906, at two o'clock P. M., at the front
door of the Court House, in Lewis
town, Fergus County, Montana, to the
highest and best bidder for cash in
hand, lawful money of the United
States, all the right, title, equity and
Interest of the above named defend
ants in and to the following described
property, to-wit:
Lot numbered fourteen (14) in
Block numbered eighteen (18) to the
Townsite of Kendall, in the said Coun
ty of Fergus, State of Montana, ac
$15,000. In addition they have leased
ore taken from the 39-foot shaft on
the Bright and Morning Star, which
assays 55 per cent copper, 12 ounces
in silver and $2.50 in gold.
Messrs. Gibson and Allen have lo
cated three additional claims adjoin
ing the leased property, named Ken
tucky Bell, Anaconda and Minute
Gun, and now have a small force at
work on them. It is their intention to
get equipment on the ground at an
early date and push work of develop
ment as rapidly as possibye, by means
of tunnels.
* * •
The gentlemen interested in the
company are all well known, practical
mining men of Butte and will un
doubtedly make a success of their
venture in this comparatively new
mining district, which has been pros
pected but very little. Messrs Gibson
and Allen returned to Butte Wednes
day.—Twin Bridges Monitor.

Allen C. Mason, sole owner of the
New Era mine near Townsend, at
which a serious explosion and fire oc
curred a few weeks ago in which
James Nimmo of this city was killed,
passed through Helena today en
route to Tacoma and Southern Cali
fornia. Mr. Mason will join his wife
and family at Tacoma and proceed
direct to San Diego and to Coronado
beach, where he has engaged quar
ters at the Hotel del Coronado. He
will remain at the latter place for per
haps thirty days then returning to
Montana, while his family will remain
a longer time.
* * *
Mr. Mason says that there are fully
forty men at work at the mines, in
Broadwater county, erecting new
buildings to take the place of those
that were burned and that every ef
fort is being made to develop a big
producing mine. The cyanide plant
wholly escaped the fire and this has
been kept constantly at work.
Rebuilding of other burned struc
tures, including practically all othei
surface works, tools, etc., was held in
abayance by Mr. Mason until such a
time as he could dispose of a saloon
which was being operated close to the
mine. He threatened to abandon the
mine entirely if the saloon was al
lowed to remain on the edge of his
property. This matter has now been
settled, the saloon has been put out of
commission and the little camp is
booming again.—Helena Record.
* * •
The name of a mining camp or com
pany should in the first place bo de
stinctive, and, if possible, associated
with the aboriginal nomenclature, or
the natural or topographical condition
in which it is established, and, sec
ondly, it should be made to conform
to terms or titles which can be con
veniently written or printed in stock
lists, certificates, account books and
other records.
* * * •
The importation into southwestern
Nevada of titles from Africa, Alaska,
Australia or other foreign countries,
not only of mining districts, but also
of mining corporations, is productive
of much incongruity and oftentimes
inconvenience in its mining affairs.
Such names as Tonopah, Kawich, Man
hattan, Rhyolite, Bulfrog, Hannapah,
Silver Peak, Panamint, Timpahute,
Tokop, Gold Crater and the like are at
once distinctive and appropriate, and
in every-day use instantly identify the
particular regions, locality or prop- r
ty to which they relate.
The pioneer of former years had no
reason to feel proud of some of the
titles which they gave to their mining
camps. Their Dogtowns, Hangtowns,
Jimtowns and Whisky Flats, however
grotesque they might appear in the
writings of Bret Harte and Mark
Twain, bore a false relation and sig
nificance to the noble, sweet-smelling
forests and beautiful mountain
streams among which they were lo
cated.
The Piute and Shoshone language*
are sufficiently copious to furnish dis
tinctive, euphonious titles for all the
mining towns and districts in Nevada
and it will be to the honor of our pros
pectors and pioneer town builders if
they will draw liberally from this
most interesting home repository be
fore casting abroad for hackeneyed
and commonplace designations.
