PRICE SAID TO BE $2,500,000
Broker Lawson still Hammering; at
Parrot—Other Mining;
For several days it lias been rumored
Butte that negotiations looking to the
sale of the Colorado Mining and Smelting
company plant in Butte were in progress.
As the head office of the company is in
Denver little could be learned at this end
the line, the general belief being, how
ever, that the Standard Oil company was
party to the deal.
An Associated Press dispatch received
this afternoon from Denver states that
the deal has been made, a New York com
pany being the purchaser, and the price
stated being $2,500,000. As the dispatch
emanates from the city where the head
office of the company is located it is sup
posed that the information is correct, al
though the stated price, in view of the
present market price of copper, and the
splendid equipment of the plant of the
company, seems ridiculously low.
Mr. Henry Williams, the present gen
eral manager of the Colorado company
in this city, is making preparations today
to leave for Santa Barbara, California,
His health has been poor for several
months. He declined to affirm or deny
the report, hut one of the officials of the
company stated to an Inter Mountain re
porter that there was some ground for
the report, although he was not aware
that a sale had been made.
An inquiry at the office of the Colorado
smelter at a late hour this afternoon
brought forth the information that there
had been some changes, and some trans
fers of stock made, hut that the proper
ties of the company here would remain
under the same management. It was
stated that positively no changes would
be made here.
The Colorado Mining and Smelting com
pany is one of the most successful and
enterprising mining companies of Butte.
It. was incorporated in 1ST!) under the title
of the Montana & Colorado Mining and
Smelting company, but in 1883 the title
was changed and the "Montana" was
dropped. It had a capital of $1,000,000,
hut as the stock was held by six individ
uals its dividends have never been made
public. Among the largest holders of
stock were Henry R. Wolcott, H. P. Hill
and Richard Pearce of Denver and W. A.
Clark and Henry Williams of Butte.
The mines owned and operated by the
company during 1898 were the Gagnon
and Otiseo. Other properties owned - by
the company are the Nettie, Philadelphia,
Hibernia, Original, California and
Mountain Bey. The latter are all silver
producers and have not been worked dur
ing the past few years. The Gagnon is
the pioneer of the district. It has been
tlie principal producer for the company.
It is opened up to a depth of 1,625 feet
and employs about 500 men. The dip of
the vein in the Gagnon is greater than
in any other mine in the copper belt, and
it is the only incline shaft on any of the
big Butte copper properties, its produc
tion will average 250 tons daily. It was
originally a silver mine, hut below water
level a large body of copper was encoun
tered. Its ores carry golenite, spholor
ite, silver sulphide, a very rich silver
copper-zinc blende, pyrites and chal
copyrite. No copper ore in paying quan
tities has been found west of the Gagnon.
The smelter of the Colorado company
vas almost destroyed by lire five years
ago. hut was rebuilt with all the modern
appliances for the cheap and complete re
duction of all grades of ore. It is
equipped with the famous turret fur
naces patented by Richard Pearce. The
smelter can treat 500 tons of crude ore
per day in its six reverbatory furnaces.
Tlie matte is sent to Denver for final
treatment. The ore is hauled to the
smelter from the Gagnon mine by means
of an electric railroad, hut the company
is one of the largest purchasers of cus
tom ore in the district.
Broker Lawson of Boston, the Butte
and Boston stock promoter, is still hum
_ . . . ,
5} er | n B 1 aiiot stock on the Boston Stock
Exchange and the result is seen in the
fluctuating quotations. The stock dropped
below 40 today, but rallied later to 42. The
at '' seems to be that Lawson has en
deavored to get control of the Parrot and
failed and is now engaged in "bearing"
the stock,
With Butte and Boston at $94'i (today's
quotation) Parrot should he selling in the
market at $150. Last year the Butte and
Boston incurred an expense of nearly a
million dollars in developing its mines.
Last year the Parrot earned $750,000 net
on a 15,000,000 pound copper output, or
about $3.20 a share on its 230,000 shares.
As a matter of fact with 18 cent copper
Parrot is earning at the rate of nearly
$1.500,000 net per year on its present out
put. the earnings for January alone being
120 , 000 .
It is' reliably reported that plans are
now under consideration for the doubling
of the output, and a director of the com
pany, who holds his stock at $100 per
share, is authority for the statement that
by January 1900 the Parrot company will
be in a position to earn $2,000,000 net per
year on a 12 cent copper market.
T. E. Dexter, a Butte mining man, has
just returned from Republic, Wash. He
spent three months in the camp, and is
so favorably impressed with the future
n f the place that he has come back to
Butte with a view to closing up his affairs
and locating permanently in Washlng
ton's Eldorado, where he has acquired
some promising interests.
Mr. Dextejf says the town now has a
population of abqyt 2^10 injiahitajits and
is growing rapidly. New' arrivals go in
every day and few go away. With the
sprlAg ä big influx of prospectors is ex
pected and Mr. Dexter is of the opinion
that at the end of this year the town will
have a population of at least 5,000.
The Republic, he says, is the only mine
that is shipping out ore, and is the only
property that has a mill although orders
for a number of milling plants have been
given and on the opening of spring the
erection of these plants will commence.
Mr. Dexter is of the opinion that with
proper milling machinery ten or twelve
properties that are now being developed
will pay handsome dividends.
The Mountain Lion, which is conceded
to be one of the good properties of the
camp, is being developed on an extensive
scale, and the results are very promising.
The machinery for a compressor drill
plant Is being put in position on this

Henry Richards is in the county jail
charged with obtaining money under
false pretenses. Ho was arrested this af- I
terr.oon by City Detective Murphy, and
according to the story of his misdeeds as |
narrated by those against whom he has 1
offended Henry ought to go into the gold
brick business, or touch the hank of Eng
land for a few thousand and then write a
hook and enjoy life a la the Bidwells. |
Some time since Richards was an in- 1
mate of Hall's hospital. While there he
was nursed by Mrs. Hattie Greig. Dur
ing the interesting period of convales
cence he cultivated the acquaintance of
Mrs. Greig with assiduity. Mrs. Greig is
young and impressionable. Richards was
persistent. He wurined himself into her
confidence, and told her hard luck stories.
He showed her letters from his people in
San Francisco, who he said were rich, hut
in his need he was too proud to appeal to
Richards kept this up until the end, and
when he was discharged Mrs. Greig re
posed much confidence in him. That was
just to his liking. He told he would like
to go home hut did not possess the neces- j
sary money.
Mrs. Greig had some money, the sav- 1
ings of lier salary as nurse at the hospital,
Richards would not borrow from her, he
was too proud to do that, he told her.
But if she would advance him some raon
ey on a draft on his people it would he a !
great accommodation, and an act of
friendship which he would remember
for ages. It would also permit him to go
She was glad to accommodate her,
friend. Williams fixed up a fictitious
draft, drawn on W. B. Isaacs of San
Francisco, his uncle, he said. The draft
was for $75, but he told her if she would
advance him $70 she could keep the $5,
for her trouble. She did so and accom
panied him to the depot, and saw him
purchase a ticket, for which he paid $40.
Then she saw him get aboard the train
and hade him goodby.
Richards did not depart, however. He i
simply went through the ear and got off |
on the other side of the train. Later he
disposed of the ticket. A few days after
his supposed departure Mrs. Greig met
him on the street. He did not know lier.
Then she realized that she had been
duped. In due time the draft came back j
unhonored. Mrs. Greig then placed the i
matter in the hands of Detective Murphy. !
When Richards was arrested he was cul
tivating the society of another woman.
He admitted his guilt and said he hoped
to pay hack the money some time.

of Mines building, for which they had '
the contract; that from July of 1896 until j
March 1S97 the firm kept large sums of

was for paying for material and labor
necessary in the work of erecting the j
building mentioned, and was deposited |
under an agreement with Ramsey that !
it should be carried in an account to the j
credit of the firm. i

that Ramsey and Roach and Suiter con
spired together to prevent the plaintiff
from having knowledge of the wrongful

Riddell further says that in March of

alone in one year of upward of $500.003,
The general public, as well as jewelers,
are aware that diamonds of a yellow
lingo, or, as they are called in the trade,
"straws," are worth very little. Large
stones of this color, even when weighing
from 10 to 100 carats, are quite common,
and wil only fetch in the market from $5
to $20 per carat, the value, nf course, in
creasing in ratio with weight. Diamonds

or perfectly colorless, would he worth
from five to ten times as much.
The methods of the individual referred
io were as follows: He purchased a quan
tity of "yellow" stones, and then by a
simple yet ingenious process succeeded in
imparting to them an evanescent parity
of color. Tin's was done by procuring two
ordinary glasses, a kettle of 1,oiling water
and a 3-penny packet of mauve dye.
The "yellow" diamond, which was per
haps set in gold ring or pin, was merely
dipped in the glass containing tie' dye,
and then in clean boiling water half a
( dozen times and allowed to dry, when it
presented all the appearance, even to the
) eye of an expert, of a magnificent stone of
; the first water.
j The next move was to place the ring on
the finger, and the well-dressed diamond
j dyer would sally forth, enter a pawn
broker's and pledge the ring for at least
I three times ils worth. "Within 12 hours,
however, the effects of the dye would have
. disappeared, and the pawnbroker could
j only wonder what on earth was wrong
with his eyes when he advanced so much
money on such a yellow stone.
Fortunately, owing to the magnitude of
ttiis individual's operations, tin» fraud has
been discovered, and now pawnbrokers, if
they are suspicious of a diamond's color,
immerse it in nitric acid, which destroys
any dye that may he present without in
any way injuring the stone.
Rubies, sapphires and emaralds may be
imitated so excellently in "paste" as to
deceive any eye, but the hardness of these
gems cannot he imparted to glass or

"Doublets," as the name implies, are
made in two pieces. The top half is usually
a genuine stone, generally a white sap

is joined by an invisible cement to a
