TAYLOR INSPECTS MINES (Continued from page one.) that work on improving Main street will commence as soon as the frost is out of the ground. Front avenue has already been graded. The forestalling of the platting of the townsite at mine No. 2 is an other of Mr. Taylor's meritorious acts. This was done at consider able expense to the company and for no other purpose than the fur thering of the interests of Roundup. The company has secured a ten-year lease on all available ground in the vicinity of the mine, with privilege of renewal, thus putting an effective damper on all townsite schemes. Mr. Taylor is always very opti mistic over the future of Roundup and sees nothing but good things for this city. Roundup's pay-roll last month was about $40,000 the average monthly wages of the m iners being a fraction over $107 after deducting house rent and min ing expenses. This is said to be the highest average monthly wage paid to coal miers in the United States. Within a year from now Mr. Taylor says the payroll will run up into six figures, and the daily output will reach the 0,000 ton mark. II. N. Taylor, a large mine oper ator of Chicago, accompanied Supt. Taylor here. lie has inspected nearly every vien of coal in the country and says this is the clean est he has yet seen. W. W.

From there he went to Boston as trainer for his brother, Grover, who fought Driscoll the light-weight champion of England at that place January 19th. The light was given to Dris soll on a hum decision, so unpopu lar being the action of the referee that a riot was narrowly averted by the intervention of the cops. They fought twelve rounds. Young Hayes is still confident that he will some day carry the Englishman's scalp at his belt. They are to be matched for another fight, which will prob tbly come off at San Fran se isco. Mill MI OPENS The Roundup Opens its New Amusement Contrivance Sat urday Evening.
