had the floor of the porch taken up and the yi
carcasses of several dogs and cats that were cit
found there removed.

St, j TThere is a party of surveyors from Colo

le- who wishes his land surveyed making a

surveyors make the deposit and take the
to scrip and survey the land, thus saving the
in settler an expense that in starting is quite

Judging from the number of unsolicited

STo the Editor of the Record:
There is considerable prospecting going
on at present, so that every day brings us
news of new strikes.
P. I. IHughes has struck a big bonanza.
Sat I)eI,orier is Pat's partner in his last
find, Charley Johnson and Old Uncle O
George ("bless your soul") have struck
the best mines of the season. Charley man
Martin is in with them. One of their new aeane
finds is called the "Whippoorwill" and an
other "Uncle George." Both of them are Ca
very promising. The owners are now have
packing ore to the Clendenin smelter for Kent
reduction. Their first lot sampled sixty- wanl
eight ounces to the ton. The second lot is
not yet sampled on account of Mr. Foss' I.a
absence, but the ore is high grade galena, gener
carrying sulphurets, and the vein is from con sii
six to nitne feet wide.
he Iii Wright, Dan Carpenter, James Stone
the and John Croff have struck a fine vein of
high grade galena ore. What the size of
ed the vein is I am unable to state, but I heard
to i say that he did not want any of the
er Wright & Edwards any more. The boys
r- have struck a good one if they have a bet
d ter mine than the W. & E. These new
.e mines are all in the Belt Park mining dis
d trict. There has bcen several new finds in
it and around the same neighborhood lately.
e John Clancey and George Seifert have
found a prospect good enough to stay with
a little while.
Some of the boys in Montana district are
doing well. Stellabras, Fitzpatrick and
Thos. Curran have packed in some high
grade ore to the smelter. It worked over
two hundred and sixty ounces to the ton.
Flow much of this ore they have I am un
able to state, but hope the boys have plen
ty of it. They are all hard workers and
deserve success.
r James Chamberlin and W. Bell have
made a new and rich find--thousand dol
lar rock. They have a big thing. It would
be well to state right here that what Is
known as Montana and Belt Park districts
are one and the same thing. If anything
Belt Park ts the oldest, as it has the first
locations recorded.
JUDITH DISTRICT.
There is considerable attention being
paid just now to the Judith district. The
Pierce & Higbey is the main mine of the
camp so far. There are several other loca
tions in the camp, ba* not much work done
on them.
Running Wolf creek is attracting the at
tention of mining experts drawn towards
it just now. Three noted experts have
paid the camp a visit this week, and have
not yet returned, consequently I am un
able to state what they may think of the
place. Running Wolf is in the Judith dis
trict. Most of the ores of this district
carry gold and copper as well as galena,
and I am reliably informed that there is a
mine of free milling ore discovrred which
assays six hundred ounces in silver besides
copper and gold. Now all these outlying
camps are tributary to Barker or in fact
really belong to it, as in a straight line
there are none of them over fifteen- miles
It the outside from the C. & M. smelter,
o the whole Basin might be classed as the
Rarker minino,, rit,.rne
g To return to Barker again. All the pros
is pects for mines in the district are lying idle -
ior want of capitalzto open them. The fa
nr mous Barker mine is shut down for want
of proper machinery to work it. To prop
- eriy open the Barker mine it will take at
leash an outlay of fifty thousand dollars
With such an amount judiciously spent
would make it pay a dividend of ten thou
sand dollars per month. What better in
vestment than this can men of means re
quire ?
The Silver Bell is reported sold. Hope
it is, as I think it will open up as well if
not the best mine in Barker.
Now comes the old reliable, the famous
Wright & Edwards mine,with six hundred
feet of levels besides a tunnel two hundred
and fifty-three feet long and one hundred
and forty-one or two feet from the surface,
cutting the vein in:a magnificent body of
ore. The company are driving levels east
and west on the vein getting ,the mine in
shape so that it.canrbe worked with profit.
In sixty days the W. & B. will pay her
monthly dividends. der stock will `then
go up a booming. The hbaft is now down
ninety feet. Surface water retards the
work of sliking to a certai exent. As
soon as the rainy sea on is over th s oble
will ceas4,.
