EVERY SECTION- IMPR0VE8. 4tema of Interest Gathered During the Past Week— B. C. Mines Busy— Coeur d'Alene District Making a Wonderful Showing—Accidents and Personals—Mergers All the Go. A great gold nugget, valued at $3276, the largest ever found in Alaska or the British Yukon, has been taken from a Nome claim. It was seven in ches long^ by four and a quarter in ches "Wide. The beautiful specimen Is the produce of a bench claim. No. 5, off Discovery on Anvil creek. It weighs 182 ounces and was discovered September 8 by a miner in the employ -of the Pioneer Mining company, which has a lay on the property. The rich gold piece nestled in a gravel bed covered with two feet of glacial ice and over the ice lay three feet of muck. The ice and muck were re moveu by ground sluicing. BRITISH COLUMBIA MINES. Shipments for the week from Ross land, B. C., are 9,560 tons. Last week's Boundary ore shipments - -exceed even the new record made the previous week, the total being aimost 17,00* tons. Coroner Foster impaneled a jury to consider thé death of Archie Conner, the miner who was killed by being covered with tons of ore in a chute In the Emma mine, Summit camp. The injuest was held at Denora City, near the scene of the fatality, xhe jury returned a verdict of accidental death. MINING NOTES. William Wright has returned to Lewiston, Idaho, from a three weeks' trip to the Buffalo .Hump. Mr. Wright states that last week the whole Hump region was visited by fearful storms, the snow-if ailing to a depth of four feet and the cold being so intense that in coming out the party suffered se verely. Mr. Wright says that the prospects on all the mines in the Buffalo Hump were never better. The Jumbo com pany now . has about 60 men at work, and expects to start up the new 14 stamp mill in a few days. The Crack erjack company had just completed its first run with the new 10 stamp mill and Ezra Baird of Lewiston has reached Grangeville with five gold bars valued at $8000, the result of the cleanup. A stampede has started for Goose creek, 40 miles northeast of Baker City, occasioned by a recent strike on the Red Bell mine. The attention of the Ladd Metals company has been attracted to the district, and an option to purchase was taken'by a represent ative of the company upon a group of 12 claims. The consideration was merely nominal, which gives rise to a belief that the Ladd company will adopt the Goose creek divide as route for the railway which it wi build to connect its Homestead smelt er with the producing mines of the Panhandle. Ore from the Reu Bell, on Goose creek, is rich in free gold. A locating party of 15 men nas left Ba ker City for the new district. Sam I. Silverman has left apottane era route to his southeastern Alaska home. J. M. Jamieson and C. L. Matuews of Spokane have secured an option on the Green Hill, a mining property in the Coeur d'Alenes, lying between the Mammoth and Standard mines.A -leal may be made for the sale of the prop erty to the new Federal company or else to eastern parties. Mr. Sweeney is said to have made offers for the property. A carload of miners left Wallace re cently for.Cripple Creek. There were 65 in the* party and they go to take the places of strikers. Nearly all of them are Missourians from canyon mines, wlfb were taken there during the last labor troubles. Nearly 5Û0 people have stampeded into the scene of the recent discov eries of rfch gold ore on the St. Joe river above the head of navigation, and people are now flocking into this district from all directions. The land for miles above and below the moun tain on which the discovery was made about one week ago has been staked out. The territory*; between this river and the BUnker Hill & Sullivan mine at Wardner has also been wen cov ered by mining locations within me past few days. It is expected that the mill of the New Jersey Mining company at Ward ner, Idaho, will commence crushing ore next week. The mill has been practically completed for some time, but its operation has been delayed on account of the noncompletion of the tramway. This is now in a con dition that wlll-xgllow a limited amount of ore to be transported over it, and therefore the mill will soon be put in operation. Tunnel No. 5 of the Willow Creek coal mine near Heppner, Ore., is prov ing to be a great coal producer. A force of twenty men is now employed in this tunnel both day and night They are mining coal in good quanti string of teams is on the ties. A road continuously hauling out the fuel and placing it on the local market. It is being sold at Lexington, lone and other places in the valley. Arrange ments are being made to ship some to Pendleton and other points along the main line of the O. R. & M. The , Cornucopia Mines company, capital $5,000,000, was incorporated recently. The object of the company is to purchase and acquire all the mines in Union county, near Baker City, Ore., known as the Cornucopia mines. The incorporators are Charles M. King, Raymond M. Lowey and Richard E. Dwight, all of Jefferson City. "The Hogan group, near Elk City, Idaho, will probably be taken over by the capital represented by William Acre. .The American Eagle is work ing night and day, each of the 10 stamps in the mill working about three tons of ore daily, of which the company is saving about $20 a ton. A negro from Seattle, who located a claim a year ago and named it after his Seattle sweetheart, Carrie Lizzie, has sold his property for $25,000. A new district has been discovered near Elk City, where the ledge has been staked for two miles and a half and locators are sinking prospect holes, in every one of which free gold is found." These are the good things told about the Elk City district by W. B. Cullen of Spokane. Judge Morrow of the United States circuit court of appeals has handed down a decision in the case of Sen ator Sanders, J. V. Sanders and L. P. Sanders, of the firm of Montana at torneys, against Maitland E. Graves of New York, affirming the decision of the district court öf Montana. The plaintiffs sued Graves for $25,000, al leged to be due for professional serv ices. They were instructed by him to report on the condition of the Ruby mine in Montana. They sent an ex pert out and then forwarded his re port to Graves, together with their fee claim. Graves considered the lat ter excessive. À jury awarded the attorneys $4,000. Judge W. P. Seeds of the district court at Cripple Creek, Col., as de cided against the military authorities in the habeas corpus cases of'Shér man Parker and three others, who were held prisoners by the military for about two weeks without warrants and with no formal charges against them. General John Chase, in com mand of the troops, declined to rec ognize the authority of the court until ordered by the governor to do so. Gov ernor Peabody has instructed Adju tant General Bell, who is in Cripple Creek, to issue an order to General Chase to turn over all the prisoners to the civil authorities hereafter, Rumors of the finding of a treasure ship off Miami have been confirmed when Captain Jennings and three of the crew of the wrecking schooner Osceo filed a libel against the cargo of a sunken ship, in the United State.=) court at Jacksonville, Fla. v^ith the assistance of a chart in his possession Captain Jennings has been searching for this vessel from time to time for many years. It is supposed to have gone ashore in 1835, loaded with ere from the Mexican mines. It was found in 25 fathoms of water near Miami Its cargo, which has only been partly examined, has been found to consist of silver ore. , The orders for a restric .Ion of th anthracite coal output has affected nearly all the colliers in the Wilkes barre, Pa., region. Över 43,000,000 tons of coal have been mine! since January 1, which is seve-al million tons more than was ever produced for a like period in the hisury of the mining industry. The present glut in the market and the effort *r. prevent a break in prices are the cause of the restriction. Despite all objections interposed by the attorneys for the Boston & Mon tana Mining company of the Amalgam ated copper group, that they were not yet ready to proceed, Judge William Clancy of Butte, last week peremp torily ordered the retrial of the noted $10,000,000 Minnie Healy case to, pro ceed last week. Every motion made by the Amalgamated people in this ,con troversy with F. Augustus Heinze was overruled by the court, the Heinze in terests scoring a telling point when Judge Clancy ruling that he, himself would bç the sole judge of the merits of this celebrated mining case 1 deny ing Heinze's enemies the right of trial by jury when the ownership of a mine estimated to be the richest in the Butte camp is to be determined. Judge Clancy also overruled a mo tion for a rehearing on reviving the injunction restraining Heinze from working or extracting any ore from the Minnie Healy. F. Augustus Heinze claims posses sion of the Minnie Healy mine on an alleged oral agreement made with Miles Finlen in the fall of 1898. Heinze it is claimed, was anxious that the al leged agreement be put in writing, and be signed by Finlen, but as the latter said he was too busy, and that he want ed to take a train for the east, Heinze thought his word as good as his bond, and that he (Heinze) could go right ahead and take possession of the Min nie Healy and do whatever he pleased in connection with the operations of the property. Heinze now alleges that after he de veloped the Minnie Healy and revealed the existence of extensive ore depos its in its depths, Finlen refused to I . . .. „ carry out his part of the alleged agree ment.
