Re-Loeators Besy-The May and Edna Showlng Good fnelta-The Pdtde of the West Shows Rich Ore at All the Levels. Correspondence of the Tamas . Now that the Xmas and New Year's festivities ire over, things are beginning to settle down to legitimate business again. Old Barker mining district did herself proud on Chrlatmas eve by giving a free ball that proved an entire saucess in every particular. The management was superb, the supper fine, the dancing excellent, so all enjoyed themselves to the musical strains of the Great Falls string band. Neihart, Kibbey and the surrounding camps were well represent ed by fair ladies with their good.looking partners. The-new year was ushered in with a cold wave" that sent the mercury down to the fortles, still the cold did not deter a jolly band of 25 from attending the Nelhart ball at Pierce & Walse's hall on New Year's eve, which proved to be a grand affair. Still the Barker boys outdid their Nethart friends in the .way of decorating, as the ball-room in Clen deain was decorated in the highest style of the art. The mottoes were timely and appropriate. The designers deserve credit for the taste displayed in their execttion. REVIEW OF THE MINEr. On New Year's eve there was consid erable stir and commotion amongst those that would be relocators, and by the way there was considerable relocating done on old and abandoned prospects that were not fully represented. The mines that are being worked here in genuine mining fashion, are opening up fline. The May and Edna are looking iarst-class in all their workings. They are down about 150 feet, all the way in ore. The are shoot is getting larger as depth is attained. The work in these mines is done on the chaclng plan at present, as there is no levels of any con sequence run yet. The mines have a large lot of ore on the dump, I should judge about twelve hundred tons of first class, besides a considerable quantity of second-class ore. The May and Edna mines being in a lime formation bid fair to be a rival to the famous Atlantis, of Tranner. Benverhead county. The next mine or note is toe rIueor the West. This propOryha ha d n e camp and shown ore of a high of I grade in all of its levels. The Pride of sea the West shut down during the holidays, but will start up in a few days with a be large force of men as the management toI intend to sink and stope out ore at the am same time. The once famous Wright A Edwards co mine as well as the Barkler& Grey qu Eagle and the noted Four Ace, or Silver a Bell mines, are lying idle at present. All en they need is the guiding hand of some the live mining compan to make them large ore producers. The building of a railway into our camp will cause the sound of the hammer and drills to re sound through ail those minNO. In doing the asessment work on the on Lynch T Conway, this last month, the owners made a big strie, finding 18 inches of solid galena in the face of the ae tunnel that will average 46 per cent of bh silver to the ton and about 00 per cent eo lead. The Lynch & Conway O. K. tie The Nora B. has large body of ore in the face of the tunnel of low grade. Itco will be valuable as a fluxing ore, how- ha ever. to The Black Hawk and Palmetto are fine prospect, both In ore that will average ni dounces of silver per ton and bout 4 pa per cent lead. The Emerald & Vander- a bul both look well for the amount of work done on them. The Magnolia & St. Louis are fine, promising mines, with 80 inches of l70ounce oe ir the bottom and 55 per cent lead. These last named mlnes cannoost be worked without a whim or steam hoist with pump, on account of is water. The Tiger, T. W., the Moulton and Meek's mines atothe head of Galena creek, are all fine prospects, inore, but idle at thepreeuttime waiting for cheap r transportaton. The old Oxide and Bon mines are both good properties and only need the skilled hand of the miner to make them paying miner. George Alti b and J. K.astmerhave some fine prospects S on the divide at the head of the 'North l F ork df Galena creek.

The citizens of St. Clair, Cascade and vicinity met according to a call on Satur day, Jan. 4th, 1000, at St. Clair, to take into consideration the building of a free bridge across the Missouri between St. Clair and Cascade, whereat the following proceedings were had: T. L. Gorham was elected chairman and J. A. Harris secretary. The chair man stated the object of the meeting. Remarks were made by Messrs. J. M. Erskine, F. 8. Reed, H. Schrammach, C. H. Austin and others relating to the im portance and necessity of a bridge at the above place. `On motion, J. M. Erskine, J. H. Shep herd and J. A. Harris were elected a com mittee to draft resolutions .xpressing the views of this meeting in regard to the matter under consideration. The meet ing adjourned for 80 minutes for consul tation. On being called to order again the committee on resolutions made the fol lowing report: The committee on resolutions beg leave to make the following report: Whereas, We, citizens and tax payers of the large and flourishing county of Cascade, believing that the welfare and prosperity of a conty depend, in a greet measure, upon the facilities for easy and free communication between each and every part of the county, and adjoining counties, and that the day of toll roads and toll bridges are past, and that this young and growing county is abund antly able to furnish each and ever person a free pess and a free road, to and from each and every part thereof, there fore, Resolved, That we approve the action of the county commissioners of Cascade county in the steps they have taken in re gard to the building of two bridges across Sun river. Resolved, That we are In favor of pur chasing the bridge now built across the Missouri at Great Falls at a reasonable and fair price, by the county, and that It be made a free bridge. Resolved, That we believe that there is a greater necessity for a bridge across the illesouri between St. Clair and Cascade for the following reasons, to-wit: That we have no bridge free or toll; tLat a large settlement living on the east site of the Missouri are of a necessity obliged to cross the river to reach the railroad to obtain their supplies, and to ship their stock and produce; that ateer tain seasons of the year it is impossible to cross without great danger of loss of life and property; that the business interests are now so great that they demand an easy access to all parts of the county and state. Resolved, Th we erein tr rans rm one portion to another of the county can be essily made at all seasons of the year. Resolved, That we believe that it will be economy for the county to assue bonds to run from 15 to 20 years in a sulcient amount to make all these Improvements. Resolvet, That the honorable board of commissLocers of Cascade county be re quested to take this matter into consider ation, and take action thereon, or, If nec essary, to submit the question to a vote of the people.

DemOa e oft the Important Enterprlse is MNow Under Way-Won erftl E atet of the SCp per Mines. Since reat Falls was founded the convi4tl was strong that no place in Montan aas so well designed by nature for th j reduction of copper ores. The 1a volume of the Missouri at thlI ple, the adaptability of the cat aracts rapids for water power and the exten lve coal fields at SBand Coulee formed akombination of resources such as exit sno where else in Montana, or even in the United States. This trportant fact was discerned last year bythe directors of the Boston & Mon tana Coa dated Copper and Silver Min ing Co. sf utte, who, after much search and delthiblon, decided that here was the best'lse for them to erect a smelter and re . The Great Falls Water Power dTowmnste company met their proposals It a liberal spirit and on the 15th of November, 1880, the negotiations were closed. THon uvT OF THE SMELTER. In accordfoce with the agreement come to the Boston & Montana company ac quired by purchase a tract of about 500 acres on the northwest side of the Mis sourl. The fiver frontage of this tract is partly above and partly below the Black Eagle falls, a cataract which has a width of 600 feet, and according to Lewis and Clarke's accurate measurement, a pitch of 26 feet 6 inches. This is an ideal site for such an estab lishment. In front flows the broad Mis souri in large volume at all times in the year. The rapids which lead to the falls have a descent of 80 feet from the bed of the river at Great Falls. The falls them selves are formed by a firm mass of rock, over which the river flows In a regular and smooth sheet. The banks near by are firm and well adapted to serve as otrong walls for the dam, which is to be constructed there. The proposed site for the smelter IsUor the high ground, which can be readily adapted for the extensive buildings that are to be constructed thereon. ANl ENcRIIVE PLANT. On this site !the Boston & Montana po to reduce 9,000 tons of copper ore per w day. The plant will include crushing go machinery of great capacity, "Cornish" on rollers to reduce the ore to greater fine- tio nesu and concentrators In which the nit most recent improvements will be intro- gr, duced. The reverbatory furnaces will be th numerous and will produce matte for ye treatment in the refinery which Is to be form part of thi plant, in which perhaps, for the first time in the world, copper will go successively through the treat ment required to render it pure metal, fit for the meanufactrers' hands in sheets or ingots. In brief, the plant will em brace all the machinery, concentrators th and furnaces needed to smelt the ore into an matte and refinethe matte Into ingots As the copper ores in the companys a mines cc contain silver the electrolytic process will H be employed to epuate the two metals. The Manltob railroad will provide am- re ple railroad facilities for the great works. t It will build five tracks from the main line to the smelter a distance of about two miles. In alt other rfepects, both here nd in Butte, the railroad company will take stepe to conduct the Immense ore tramsi with efficmiency and general satins faction. These smelting end copper refiningt work will add greatly to the population business and leneral importance of e Great Falls. The thousands of wormen at the smelter and other buinlldings will be steady customers of our merchante, a who will in a, eo able t o offer redy and remunerative market ior the farm products of the surrounding country.. N The works will demontrate p tally the industrial capacity of Gregt Falls and do more than the most psuanaave arguments, to attract here manufacturers wuo are qnet of a broad field for their tl industries. Cap ta the intention of the Boeton & Mosena company to foster [ here all branches of the copper indus- | try, m.ortant develepments may be en- 1 pei n that ropect. The worark of construction will be in charge of Mr C. 0. Parsons, consulting engineer of the Boston & Montna conm pany, who i well qualified for such re sponelbe snties. TH. a ohsetais wVoreD ar.uL mraN I. The Boston & Montana company is one of the great mioning corporations of Butte. About three years ago Captain Thomas Couch, in company with Captain Daniels of Michigan, eamined a group of mines owned by C. X. Larable of the Montana Copper company. This groupinocluded the Mountain View, Colsa, Liquidator and West Colnse. The report was so favorable that some Boston and New York capitalists formed a ompsonyrwbch Soqnired thee d other extensive mn a ing propertelu. Captain Couch, who held high renk as a practical mining engineer, eof Iann experience, wan appointed super inteondent Under his direction minig Soperalons have bean conducted on amr etenmuve scale. The Mountain Vi mine has beenopened to a depth of nr y t,000 feato a writer stated racenhl In the Mountain View, Htrrns-Lloy and notesa minus alone-allowned by 5 the Boston & Montana company--there Is are at lest 9,000,000 tone ef ore in sight, n to say nothing of the verut amount not yet opened up. The are, we read, two veins on the Monnteln View, one north iand one south, each of which varies in or width from 90 to 40 feet "When cross S cuts and levels are run from the 1,000 foot V statlon of thki mine, the Boston & Mon id tana will have a sre thing on a million tns .of ore from this one property." The Y .arnLloyd, we are also told, is a won re derful mine, with nearly as much ore in sight as in the Mountau View. tt- he bnelns of this company has pros Spared so well that ithae pald W i,0 In dividends, besides resrving part of the profits for the building of the Great Falls smelter and refinery. The capital stock of the company is $8,125,000 in 125,000 shares at $25 each. Its directors are men of high rank in the financial and commercial world. They have conducted its affairs with marked success from the first. Olty Couelil. Alderman Webster presided at the meeting of the city council last evening. Aldermen Bridges, Hickojy, Johnson, Albrecht, and Clinton were also present. A telephone ordinance, giving a fran chise to Judge Dyas was read and refer red to the committee on ordinances. The are electric light ordinance came up for consideration and excited much discussion. Each article was considered separately. An amendment requiring the company to provide lights equal to 4,000 candle power, free to the city, ;'na adopted on motion of Aldermos Clinton. The poles were also excluded from every fourth street from 4th to 24th, inclusive. Mr. Paris Gibson spoke of the growing importance of a sewerage system and suggested that the aldermen consult with Mr. Fanning, who is now in town. On motion of Alderman Clinton, a committee was appointed, which, with the park commissioners, will confer with Mr. Fanning. The committee is as fol lows: Clinton, Albrecht and Bridges. Mr. Rowen's bill for the signal appar atus was audited and ordered paid. Knowlea Nominated. W.Aesmxoox, Jan. 6.-T. Hiram Knowles, of Butte, has been nominated by the president for district judge in Montana. E. D. Weed is re-appointed U. S. attorney. STATE SImFINOS. The supreme court is in session. The Anaconda company is proceeding with its plans for a refinery in a most conservative manner. An experiment which will cost $80,000, is now in prog ress at Anaconda. The Granite Mountain's Christmas gift to its stockholders was a dividend of 50 cents per share. This makes $8,000,000 paid in dividends since April 8, 1875. It has amounted to $20 a share, and is con sidered a big return on the investment when it is known that the original shares cost 85 cents each. The Spotted Horse of Maiden is rapid ly making itself felt, and can now be classed among the great mines of the world. Its daily disbursements of wages for every day in the mauth, the year round, amounts in round numbers to $800 per day, or $292,000 per annum. Alarge portion o the machinery, intended for the mill onthe Spotted Horse,has reached will very largely increase the output of gold and make the mine, without ques tion, the largest producer of that metal on the face of the globe. With the addi tion of another mine or two of the mag nitude of the Spotted Horse to the list of great mines in Montana, our output of the precious metals (including gold, sil ver, copper and lead) will very easily go beyondone hundred millions per annum. --Helena Mining Journal.
