The great uudlencc that lilted Ker

held spellbound during the Intense

With such deep earnestness and close

actions of Huth, us Impersonated by

with Steve (ihent, that there was not
even the rustle of a program to In

strangest scene of tho kind over seen
on the local stage. Then the uppl.iuse
broke loose and showed tho apprecia

Hrownell and Hdwin Mordant.
Another cause of spontaneous up
plauae was the setting of the second
scene showing the camp of Ghent and
his strangely won wife on the summit
of a peak In the Hockles, which was a
most realistic piece of stagecraft.
The two principals and the straight

held the center of tho stage through

their parts well. Miss Hrownell show

Tho lectures given yesterday ut the

well uttt tided und proved of u most
interesting und instructive nature. The

and history made the lecture of much
value to the pupils and of general in

prove sufficient for the drilling campaign, ,)ut also
will provide funds for actual mining opera
tions. The- drill Is now down ubout I'OO feet. The ove r
bureh n wus comparative ly light. . Houth Lake will
seaieh primarily for the How famous Lake lode. It
will also cut the three new Adventure lodes. The com

half of its ucreage is admirably situated. Then ar-'
now 00,000 -shares of the stock outstanding.
IMamond drilling at the North Lake has not been at
tended. by as satisfactory results as might have been
cxpe-cie-cl. The heavy overburden encountered has
made the progress of work rather slow. It was hoped
that results would be obtained by this time of such a
nature as to make! possible- the sinking of u shaft thH
fall. This Is very Improbable-, theugh, und diamond
drilling will probably continue for tho gre-ute-r part off
the winter. North Lake has yet to cut the Lake lod
Tliere nre now 36 drills being actuated at the AI
louez in both of Its Bhafts. The ground being opened
at No. 2 shaft is proving very rich. This shaft bus
completed the turn und Is now being sunk on an unglo
eejual to that of tho Ke-arsargo lode. Shipments from
No. 2 shaft will from now on gradually Increase until
they t-eiual those from No. 1 shaft. Alloucse when It is
in shape to ship from both shafts si'. mid have but lit
tle difficulty in getting 20 pounds t i .got copper ,o
tho ton of rock vtarnped. Great faith has been cen
tered in No. 2 shaft and from present Indications this
has not been misplaced.
Sinking No. 2 shaft of thu OJibway is progressing
ve ry rapidly, and It Is Imped to be down to u depth of
1.250 feet by the middle of the present month, when
tho plat will bo cut and a crosscut started for the
lode. This will be as fur us the company will sink
for the present. No. 1 shaft will bo carried down to
the same depth when tho two shafts will bo connected
up by drifts. At tho 800-foot level tho lutc-rul work
from beth shafts Is being pushed quite vigorously und
the results attained to date have been satisfactory In
e very respect.
Favorable re'-ports from North ltutte cemtinue to bo
received. The name sellers a few months 'so are now

Reports Indicate that at both tho 2,000 ni l z 2'10-foot
levels the company Is getting Into a bette4 rude f

lieved that even more favorablo reports will be rer
Those familiar with conditions In the Butte camp
have never for u moment doubted that North Butte
would get rich ore In Is deeper workings. The Hlg'i
Ore mine opened some of Its richest ore ut a depth of
2.800 feet. The Anaconda alse encountered rich ore in
deep mining, while tho Purrot became rejuvenated only
after getting Into a decidedly richer sone around
depth of 3.000 feet.
All the stories of North Uutte having seen Its best
days ure idle dreams. The company hns a bright fu
ture uhead of It, und will be found In the ranks of ttu
dividend payers for many years to come.
After a ruction ef $1.50 Calumet & Montana stead
ier! up und considerable stock was wanted at that fig

driving its crosscut through the mountain to the Ida

sults In a short time. Calumet & Montana has suf-ncb-nt
funds for all of Its prese-nt needs and is In ca
pable hands so that shareholders can look for favor

Tho report was given currency yesterday to the ef
fect that tho Calumet & Arizona company in continu
ing its policy of expansion hue! arranged to enter the
(Hobo camp. This was to be brought about by the
acquisition of control of the Hovland Smith proper
ties. Kfforts to get this report confirmed by local of
ficials of tho Calumet & Arizona proved unsue-cesssful.
The Hovlund-Sinlth properties Include the Live Oak,
(Jlobe) Consolidated, Black Warrior and Cordova, th i
latter holding all the stock In the Kureka. From pri
vate sources we learn that engineers who have been
known to act for Calumet & Arizona have recently in-hpe-cted
the nbovp mentioned properties, und It la be-lie-ved
that this was fer the purpose outlined.
The expansion policy undertaken by the Calumet &
Arizona company is undoubtedly one which"-will be
continued and will do much to strengthen the position
of tills stock. While It Is not known whether th's
(Jlobe de-al will be directly for the account of the Calu
met & Arizona company, yet such Is H e way the ru
meir has "t. The story Is scouted In some sources for
the re ason that the best of feeling has not been show n

This week the rumor was circulated thst no further
assessments would be iieeejeary and that the Lake
Superior & Arizona had arranged for its further financ
ing. This, so the report had it, was to be brought
ubout by Interesting certain capitalists. An effort to
obtain a confirmation of this btory was unsuccessful,
though it has not been denied. From a private ) .'
we learn that a deal along the lines menti .ie ...
Is being considered and the chances polo; -.r u- . t
its sucte ssful -consummation.
Lako Superior & Arizona Is in a strong poini-i:
There are now outstanding only about 80,000 shares o.
stock. The greater portion of this Is held by interests
who will not part with it at anywhere near presen;
prices. Th? market of late for the stock has bee.i
made solely by small lots. It would take but little ag
gressive buying to double the present quotations. Lo
cal shareholders have always had great confidence ire
the mine and believe that their patience In holding
" e lr ftock w ill b amply rewarded.
Ihe buying ef this idoek during the past week h.v
been of an exceptional character. Inquiry brings out
the statement that news of a very favorable nature 1
daily expected from the mine. Just along what llns
this will be is Impossible to state, but we believe that
shipments of some of the high grade ore will be mado
very soon. As Santa Hot.alia in the past has shipped
orp which has gone considerably better than $1,000 to
t 'on it Is not difficult to guess Just what wou' 1
I 1 i ; -rj If the company opens up very much of thii
'!a.-; of ore. The progress of developments nt the
mine have been very rapid. Tho management Is de
termined to open up a profitable mine as quickly as
p : do, and Judging from the reports to date will
su. ce eel.
There has been Forne selling of Copper Rang by
Lake holders during the past few days. This Is du-i
