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
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

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.

Acros the M.ssori.
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
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
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
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.

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.
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
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
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

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

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

The Granite Mountain's Christmas gift
to its stockholders was a dividend of 50
cents per share. This makes $8,000,000

sidered a big return on the investment

cost 85 cents each.

gold and make the mine, without ques
