Dillon, Montana, Fku. 4, 1S87. MIKKIDAX 8HAVINCJ.S. (Hy um: of the IVhiltters.) The Development of Mine*—A Mining Ac cident-Condition of Stock -A <«. T. Entertainment. Cot. tax, Mont., Jan. 22d, 1SS7. To llic liditor of tlic Tribune: In my last letter, in y statement in re gard to the mines in this ramp, was incoin pletc, as I said nothing about the product of them. There were if* tons of ore packed down from the Sky High in 1879, which ran about $45 per ton. About 35 tons have been run from the fiuttertiy mine averag ing about $20. Since its discovery, there have been about 150 tons worked, by mill and nrastra, from the Plymouth Rock, which averages about $20 per ton. Par ties are engaged now in extracting the precious metal from some of the richest rock of this mine, by means of a hand mortar and a pan, and the results arc very satisfactory, they having gotten out of 600 pounds of quart/, 3 ounces, 7 penny weights from the dust and 3 oz., 5 pwt. out of retort. Unfortunately for the owners of this mine, these rich spots arc so far apart, that after one is dug out, they get discouraged before another is found, although, as a general thing, they have had a pretty good vein of second cluss ore, all the time. I believe it is the intention of the owners of this properly, to put their nrastra in running order in the spring; open up their mine, and "fight it out on that line if it takes all summer,'' and winter too. I said in my last letter, that the tunnel on I). It. Noble and Sons' west ground, reached the vein at a depth of 125 feet, which should have been 180 feet. The history ol this mine is too well known for me to enter into particulars. For quite a number of years its output has been regu lar and remunerative. The rock has been worked by common mill process and has run from $5 to $75'per ton. Assays have been made of the rock, from time to time, and it has shown over $100 offener than under that sum, of silver and gold. A re cent assay, by an expert who had been ex amining the mine, from rock that hardly ran up to the average in the mill, assayed $193. They have 1,500 or 2,000 tons of tailings saved which assay 3 or 4 times as much as they saved in the mill, which is now closed down for the winter. They usually run until in February, but the water got too low five or six weeks sooner than common this season, on account of so little snow lust winter. If the amount of snow is any criterion to go by now, they can run all next winter. I). II. Noble and Worthy, moved down to the valley with their families two weeks ago, and, judging from the appearances at the scene of the accident, the former met with quite a catastrophe, by lipping over his sled which was filled high with fur ni lure, household goods and a mixed mass of movable matter, which always has to be taken when a change of residence is made. Mrs. N. and Mr*. M. JÎ. Gunnel and child, were on the sled, but fortunate'y no one was hurt, and on the whole, I guess thev concluded they had experienced a big time. it is rumored that some ot the owners of the Company Mine have sold their in terests and that some money has been paid on the bargain, but, for lack of good authority upon the matter, I will sav it is simply a rumor, and as rumors are not facts, I can't tell how it is. Elmer Oleson and John Lindlorse have been employed by I). H. V \ Sons, in their mine, and about to or 11 o'clock, a week ago last Wednesday, a large rock weighing 71x1 or 800 pounds became de tached from the hanging wall and ll-ll on Mr. L. breaking his right leg square otf, about 5 inches above the knee. Young Oleson with what assistance Mr. L. could render got the rock off of him. They were up in the slope and it was a matter of im possibility for any one man to get him down from there to the main level, to sav nothing of getteng him up the hill to the bouse, so Mr. O. brought a bed down to the mine and after lie had fixed him on that as comfortably a* possible, started for help. He started for the valley, on snow shoes, and made tl.c first three mile* in 25 minutes, when he left his snow shoes. His first two appeals for help were unsuc cesslul, which discouraged the boy, anj he ran all the way to Sheridan, where a party of men volunteered their services, and started for the scene of the accident, about 3 o clock p. m. They made slow progress through the deep snow ; at night some came back, and about midnight another party started out with a four-horse team: in ali theie were 13 men and two teams. They worked all night and reached the sufferer about S o clock Thursday morning. They made a toboggan of a pair of snow shoe», upon which the\ secured him, and went straight down the mountain, the bot tom of which they reached without anv accident; tiiou„'li »t one time, when the snow was crusted, it took all the strength of five men to hold iiitn back, but the boys knew the importance of their mission and were there to stnv. They brought him through without any accident, reaching .SheriJan about 3 o'clock p. ni., in good condition, but very hungry. 'Ilie patients liinb was so swollen it could not be set un til last Thursday, which operation was per formed by Dr. G. Rightenour, who, by the way, can't ride snow-shoes, because he tried it; but lie waded three miles through snow from 1 to 3 (eet deep and was one of the first to reach the patient and one of the five that took the slide over the crusted snow with him. Mr. L. is at the hotel and is doing well. Stock is beginning to show the efleet* ol the long snowy spell, buta week or two more of the warm wind, that has been blowing for the past two weeks, will im prove their chances very much: still those who have no feed are most certain to lose some stock. The Good Templars are hard at work on an entertainment to be give some time next month. "Iki;." A Fatal Freezing. AI Keaton is dying on Shell creek in the Big Horn country from frozen feet. There is no surgeon in that part of the country and his friends have not enough money to send for one, so amputation is out of the question. He was frozen while attempting to go to sec about his claim on Big Horn which, it was reported, had been jumped. It was the morning of December 25th when Keaton started for the claim, a distance of 25 miles, on foot, and in thin boots. It was very cold and stormy, and Keaton was lost lor three days and nights among the hills. Finally he found iiis way back to Shell creek, and was found with his lower extremities frozen from the knees down. His friends kept him in snow for sixteen hours, and managed to draw the fiost out of his legs, but his feet and ankles were beyond cure. His feet aie black and greatly swollen and are lit erally rotting off. An awful death awaits him.— fitter Afouuhnn. V. 8. DISTRICT COURTS. Establishment of Districts, Assignments, and Terms.
