In the Deep Creek Country
Writing from the Deep Creek countij

Creek with a good wagon road all the way

silver ore goes high showing as much as I
O silver and 20 per cent lead to the ton I
The copper ore goes from 15 to I per cent
per ton and carries a little gold Here is
located one of the largest copper mines in
the est In the early 70s the then owners
put in a smelter that cost 20 000 It ran
out tons of copper matte but for some
reason was not the success it should have
been and was attached bj creditors The
nine is now bonded to a Pennsylvania
company and it is understood the com i
pany will commence work just as soon i
a railway facilities are provided These
oaes will all pay to freight to Deep Creek
Work can be prosecuted twelve months In
the year in any of the camps in the Deep
Creek country There is but little snow
and cedar and pin on pine in abundance
just the camp for a poor man Tao mines
are easily accessible the ores are easily
line Transportation is the only diffli
cult Many of the claims ara patented
the owners having thus secured their prop
erty and gone elsewhere to await the
coming of the railroad which is sure to be
built sometime
Cherry Creek is ninety miles from the I
wells on the Central Pacific and fft tj fo
miles from Deep Creek It is tributary
countrj t bait Lake or will be as
soon as railway facilities are secured It I
is one of the best camps in Nevada The
mines shut down in the 70s
because the miners refused to
work for S3oO per day Considerable
litigation has also done much to hold back I

owns some very fine mines here He is
down COO feet on one of them and the ores
continue to increase in richness He also I
has three quartz mills ono 5stamp one

sold t Mr Cleveland of Nevada with
Charles Kearney as superintendent will
make a great showing A new quart mill
is now being erected To give you somo
iuea of the difficulties of transportation it
is but nec < rsaj to say that fiftj two
Louses have made three trips t and from
the railway t get the machinery here
Egan cafion is four miles further on In

ores but they can never be handled until
the advent of cheaper transportation
These mines lie west and south of and
within sixty miles of Deep Creek 1o the
north and just where the iron hoise will
make it appearance on this side of the des

mines have large quantities of ores ready

The Eastern Money Market I 11
Of the eastern money market Henry
Cle vshas the following The demand for
currencj has exceeded all precedent and
the special supply of sixt millions from
the treasury has scarcely produced any
Visible impression upon the scarcity
Where the money has gone and why it is
not returning in the usual course are ques
tions that no ono seems able t satis
factorily answer We are at the end of
November when the south usually begins
to draw upon New York and yet of all the
xmllious the west has drawn from us no
currency is returning t do service in the
I southern states There is reason to hope
I however that the local pressure may so I
affect the western exchanges as to bring i
bacK a portion of what we have lost and a
sharp risein the rate for New York ex
change at Chicago gives good encourage
ment for that hope Moreover it remains
to be seen whether other institutions may
prove as excessively war about time loans
as the banks now are The fact that Pond
leg the present crisis the banks have
sea celv lost a dollar on loans t stock
houses is beginning to have its effect upon
trust companies and other important
lenders and it would not be surprising
should the banks find at a later stage tnat
lacy have lost considerable of their toek
exchange business as the result of their
present timidity
The crisis has hid one valuable indirect
result It ha brought to a very sharp ic
cuuntabilitj the reckless mismanagement
that has landed some of our best railroad
prop ° rtics in their present sorry financial
condition It has also created an opportun
ity for buying up stocks so as to enable
capitalists ol greater ability and favoring
better methods to get control of a large
mileage of important roads The virtual
cutting in two of the prices of such stocks
ns Rock Island Chicago Burlington X
Quincy Illinois Central 1 Paul Union
Pacific Atchison X Topeka eta has
aroused a deep feeling of discontent among
stockholders who will be satisfied in
future with nothing short of a manage
ment that secures satisfactory net earnings
as well as large tonnage Mr Goulds lead
in a new polIcy of cooperation among the
southwestern roads gives promise of being
a valuable lesson in the direction of con
servativo management These facts are
suggestive of an improved future condition
of the railroad interest and they lie likely
to lead t a lasting Improvement in stocks

New Yom Dec 5Taunt Thompson
the sculptor and academician stood yester
day in the pen of the Jeffoison Market
police court One would have hardly
singled him out as different in any way
from his companions in misery His un
shaved face was adorned with a moustache i
and long thin imperial his clothing was I
of common quality and ho wore a soiled
flannel shirt Yet his artistic hand has
chiselled many famous pieces of sculpture
Thompson had been drinking with
wore than usual abandon for the
last two or three weeks and Tues I
day night had an attack of delirium

ended his door to keep them out A
lolicemans aid was invoked the door was
broken open and the sculptor was irrosted

him and he was sentenced to Blackwelli

said his friend and am about the only
friend he has left It is another case of a
man of genius sacrificing friends fame and
toitune to drink JCnompson is connected
with some of the best people in New York
He has been drinking to excess for fifteen
years His wife who is a sister to Bishop
Potter still sticks to him although they
have not lived together for years Thomp

life there was an odd one He kept aloof
from other artists and sculptors Ho
would go on sprees dospite the most
earnest efforts of nis wife to prevent him
He had many orders from American pat
rons vvhilotneie but neglected his work
This was part duo t drink and partly be
muse of his habits of procrastination I
have known him to spend six or eight
months over a small piece that ho could

have benches and a neat dining table The

These are made of matollasso and brocaded
silks mixed with plush and vo1 oooi of the
new figured faced ebbs and the French

which are lined with rich Ponpadour bro
cades Smaller wraps on the capo order
with fitted backs and full fronts falling a
little below the waist are more youthful
and less burdensome and are therefore very
popular with the owners of slender petite
