Reported Rich Strike at Belona

Reports of a rich strike of high grade
copper ore in the Belona shaft of the Par
rot company were circulated
streets yesterday, but nothing definite .
has yet been learned. It is known that j
the Belona has a fine ledge of copper in
the north crosscut at the GOO, but the re
ports are to the effect that a much richer
body was cut on the south side' of the
Parrot stock has been steadily declin
ing. notwithstanding the fact that Butte
& Boston, a non-dividend paying property .
is up near the $100 mark. The advance ,
in the latter and the depreciation of Par- :
rot are due to the manipulation of the :
brokers of Boston. The expectation that :
the Standard Oil people will eventually I
absorb the Butte & Boston is responsible j
for the rapid advance of that stock. Min- j
ing men of Butte who are thoroughly fa
miliar with the ground, however, can see
no good reason why the Parrot should be
selling at less than one-half that of Butte
& Roston. It will be many >eaisbefore the
latter will declare a dividend while
the Parrot is in better shape for the pro
duction of ore than ever before in its
history. Operations on the Boston stock
exchange prove that the merit of a prop
erty is not always taken into considera
A. M. Grant, who has charge of the
local office of the Colorado Iron Works
company, returned from Spokane last
night to which place he went via Salt
Lake city. Mr. Grant did not get nearer
the Republic camp than Spokane, but
I that was near enough to convince him
that the new mining section has a very
promising future. Republic is the topic
of conversation in the hotel lobbies—in
fact in every place where men congregate.
The town now has a population of nearly
5.000 and this figure will be considerably
augmented in the early spring time.

Butte parties have taken an option on

Philipsburg Mail: Messrs. W. A. Smith
and John Easton last Monday commenced
work in the Mystery tunnel, formerly the
property of the Philipsburg Mining and
Milling company. This mine is among
the best known in this vicinity and the
late C. X. Freeman had unbounded faith
in ils ultimate development Into a great
producer. A number of claims were own
ed by the company, and for some reason
or other only one of them, the Silver ;
Spike, was ever patented. The i
representation work for the yeai ' ' . '
not performed on the two principal,
claims, and on January 1, Mr. -' ..
ing informed of this fact by one of the!
largest stockholders, lost no time in locat
ing the same.
Mr. W. A. Smith, recently of Virginia
the property with Mr. Easton, and those j
gentlemen expect to be shipping ore to
the Butte smelters within a month. Sev- ;
eral hundred feet of tunnel have been;
driven into the mountain and some very
good ore has been found. The largest lead
that has been cut is about eighteen
inches wide, and the ore will average
about 40 ounces in silver, but it is base
and must be shipped to Butte or other
smelters for treatment.
Mr. Smith has had a good deal of ex
perience in mining, especially in lime for
mation. and he believes that the proposi
tion will pay. While nothing more than
wages is expected at present, the owners
are apt to strike some very good ore at
almost any time.
The report that this property was al
lowed to go by default and had been re
located by Mr. Easton, has caused con
siderable surprise in this section, and if
the fact had been known that it was open
for relocation, there would have been
quite an army of claim jumpers on the
ground the night of January 1. Stock
holders claim that while tbe property was
of no great value to them, it will net
handsome profits to parties working it
themselves, and the residents of Philips
burg may yet see the fond predictions
of the late C. N. Freeman verified.
A shipment of high grade ore from the'
Levi Burr mine, at Hasmark, was made
last Saturday by Mr. Thomas E. Mitchell,
who is working the property under a
lease. This was the largest car of ore
ever shipped from the Levi Burr by Mr.
Mitchell and was billed to tbe Omaha
and Grant Smelting company, at Omaha.
; The Levi Burr mine is owned by Mrs. H.
Schnepel of this city, and is considered
i one of the best properties in the vicinity
of Hasmark. A tunnel about 200 feet
has been driven on the lead and work is
now in progress to connect the same with
the shaft for the purpose of securing bet
^ venti , ation for the minP . The last car
nf ore was taken from the shaft, and the
! connection with the tunnel will prove a
great convenience in future operations,
which can be carried on more economical
ly than heretofore. ^ _
It is reported that State Senator Jerry
j Connolly has secured a lease on the Trout

Several other parties recently have

best leasing propositions in this section.

About ten days ago a young man was
arrested for selling maps without a li- ]
cense. In order to settle the matter he
paid a license for the quarter amounting
to $12.50. Now he proposes to leave town
and. he has filed a communication wi^i
the city clerk, in which he sets forth that
the period during which he did business
in Butte amounts in all to a week, and
he wants the council to give him a rebate
on his quarter license. He goes on to say
that he docs business in forty-five towns
in the United States, and that if he was
taxed in all of them as he was in Butte
he would have to go out of the map busi
ness—would be wiped off the business
map. He also states that he gave aw ah'
a picture with each map sold; this he re
minds the council, made business for pic
ture framers goods, wherein he was pro
moting and fostering a local industry. '

Short line is to receive considerable at

to be widened and the track heavily bal

materially. The latter stretch of road
between Feely station and Apex hill has
given the company more or less trouble
ever since the line was constructed and J
several serious accidents have happened
there, but it is now proposed to adjust
the grade and improve the road bed at
this point as much as is possible.

"Wonder if these cars will ever be
used," was the remark commonly
heard as the steady throng of visitors
to the World's fair and to the Trans
Mississippi exposition walked through
the elaborately-appointed sleeping and
dining-cars exhibited by the Pullman
company. "Can't say. ma'am; decs am
de finest cars evah built and do road dat
gets dem am lucky," invariably replied
the porter.
More than $150.000 is invested in this
palatial equipment, and it is now earning
its first revenue. Hitherto the cars have
been unused except for show purposes.
As displayed at the national expositions
the grand show train was made up of five
cars. Most of these arc now in use on an
excursion from the Atlantic to the Pacific
coast and back again. The excursion is
a somewhat notable one, and will pass
this city on the return trip. The total
distance covered by the ticket is 9500
miles, in seventeen states and two terri
tories. Thirty-five days are required for
the tour, and of these nineteen are de
voted to sojourning in California. The
party left New York and Philadelphia
on February 9th over the Pennsylvania
and went through the south first. After a
visit in Los Angeles, four days, March
4-7, will be spent in San Francisco.
Thursday, March 9th. is set aside for Suit
Lake City. Then the palatial train with
its load of wealthy easterners will go to
Colorado Springs over the Rio Grande
route. The following Sunday is given
up to sight-seeing in Denver. No stop
of any duration will be made in Ne

It is admitted by all railroaders that
this is the most palatial train that ever
crossed the continent. The "Atlantic" is
a smoking-car, containing a bathroom, a
barber-shop and a section with berths.
The washstands are of Mexican onyx,
while the chairs and sofas arc upholstered
in leather of Moorish design. The "Re
public" is a standard sleeper, with one
stateroom j n onP en d and two in the other.
The latter, opening into one, form the
bridal chamber, beautifully finished in
ivory, gold and yellow. This ear is of the
empire style and is accepted as a model
in all respects. The dining-car is named
"America," and its interior in vermillion
wood exhibits more elaborate carving
than any other car on the train. The
