The prospectus of the Banner
and Gold Bug Mining Co. of Spo
ikano, with mines in Florence, has
■•come to our table. We visited
these properties last fall and made
ä favorable comment thereon
through the colums of the Free
Press. Since that time develop
ment work has been progressing
steadily on both the Gold Bug and
Banner mines. Late last fall
hoist and boiler was shipped in for
the Banner, but on account of
heavy roads was left about 8 miles
out. Preparations are now being
made to move this hoist in and set
up the same on the Banner, and to
sink a shaft to a depth of 300 feet.
On the Banner the shaft has reach
ed a depth of 75 feet below the
Adit tunnel giving a vertical stop
ing depth of 175 feet, with tho
ground prospected 300 feet cast of
shaft and 100 feet west of shaft by
tunnel driven on the vein showing
from 18 inches to 8 foot of pay
quartz, fully establishing the value
of the mine aud insures it as a per
manent producer. Tho last mill
test of ore taken from this mine
ran $49.60 per ton in gold. There
is now something like 300 tons of
ore on the dump that will average
$27 per ton, and over 2500 tons in
sight in the mine. The last work
done on the Gold Bug showed up
a new chute of ore from 24 to 30
inches in width; this body of ore
assay from $G0 to $80 per ton,
and was driven a distance of 40
feet, when a cave occurred that
stopped the contractors. This
cave on tho Gold Bug will bo im
mediately timbered up and the
drift driven ahead on the ore. It
is expected that Mr. H. M. Glid
den will be in Florence before May
1, and work will bo pushed vigor
ously on both tho Gold Bug and
Banucr. It is the intention
of the
to have
both properties sufficiently opened
up to keep a 10 stamp mill in con
tinuous operation by the time a
mill can be hauled iu, which time
will depend on the state of the
roads. A great deal of interest is
being taken iu Spokane and other
mining centers over the Florence
district, and with a mill in steady
operation on the Banner, one on
the Hiyou, and a possibility of two
more on other claims before tho
summer is over, will make Flor
ence a very much alive camp.
Stage Line Changed Hands.
Jerry S. Baker and Frank Cos
ton have purchased from Ezra
Baird the Lewiston and Mt. Idaho
stage line and took possession yes
terday. Mr. Baird has been run
ning the line in good style, with
good stock and frequent changes,
and Mr. Baker assures us that the
new proprietors will keep run
ning it right up to the handle,
with new stock and will himself bo
over the road twice a week to give
his personal attention to all the
details. Messrs. Baker and Coston
also own the stage line from
Grangeville to Florenco and will
operate both together. They are
both experts on stage business and
will do their best to give the pub
lic good satisfaction.
Saturday Evening, April 12. '»7.
This lecture will bo highly in
teresting, instructive and intense
ly practical. The real subject is
'•Success versus Failure," and yet
"Man, Monkey or Mouse" fits the
case exactly. There are throe di
visions of the lecture of about half
gp houp each. The first treats of
the requisites for success; the sec
ond, the reasons for failure, and
the third, the present age and its
opportunities. The last division
is almost wholly scientific and
treats of the marvels of the pres
ent age. Wonder treads upon the
heels of wonder; our industral
progress illustrated; transporta
tion, modern telegraphy, electric
tricity at the world's Columbian
exposition; a wedding by electric
ity; the telephone newspaper; X
ray, etc. You must hear this lec
ture to know what it is. Satisfac
tion guaranteed.

Lewiston Tribune.
A. F. Parker, of Grangevillo, ar
rived in town Wednesday on his
way home from a trip to Boise,
Butte and Spokane. The papers of
these towns contain glowing inter
views descriptive of the manifold
resources of the Clearwater basin
given in Mr. Parker's inimitable
style, which will undoubtedly serve
to attract home-seekers, specula
tors and investors to the happy
land of Nez Pcrco and Idaho
counties. While in Boise he did
earnest, and it is hoped effective
work, to induce the extension of
the proposed Seven Devils railroad
northward to Camas prairie and
Lewiston, and promised the pro
moters a liberal subsid} T in wheat
to aid the enterprise. He seems
well satisfied that the road will be
built from Payette or Weiser to the
Devils, and asserts that its ulti
mate extension northward is a logi
cal necessity.
In Butte Mr. Parker reports
much enquiry about the mineral
resources of Elk City and Florence,
and lie anticipates a large influx of
men and capital from that great
camp to aid in the development of
our tributary mineral belts.
