d miles from G range ville
to Thunder Mountain
l'lies.• distancée may be relied
on as being the maximum,
trail l>y way of Snovvslide was
built by Caswell Bros., the dis
coverers of the camp, in order to
reach Warren. There is a better
trail which can lie traveled several
weeks earlier and has the additional
merit of being from five to eight
miles shorter. At any rate, War
ren is the first objective point, be
eause it is the nearest wagon road
connection with Thunder Moun
tain, and the situation is now so
thoroughly familiar lo mining
men who have visited the big camp
that the great bulk of the travel in
the coming spring will come by
way of the Northern Pacific to
Slites, and thence to (irangeville
»■ over the state wagon road to
Warren.
On this route the highest point
is Cape llorfi, this side of Florence,
1000 to 1500 feel lower in altitude
* than Hi g Baldy, on the Elk City
road, and considerably less than
the route from Salmon Meadows
4 and Council, where the summit of
X Seeesh creek has to be overcome.
In fact, the state wagon road from
(irangeville to Warren is the
easiest, best and, at present, tlie
most direct route of reaching Thun
der mountain. It is possible that
other routes may be found and
igeviik*, opened later, but Warren is today
the nearest wagon road and supply
point for the new mines, and has
a trail into the new camp from
that point over lower altitudes
than any other route at this time.
Moreover, from Orangeville,
there is u,choice of routes, either
by way of Salmon river, Klk City,
buffalo Hump or liixie, all of
which are being investigated by
Northern Pacific peoplé and the
Orangeville hoard of trade. From
these facts it is quite clear that
Orangeville is the key to the situa
tion, and the railroad people real
It is the nearest and larg
est trading point to the new mines,
and has the additional advantage
that it visitors to Thunder Moun
tain are dissatisfied with the pri
ces they have to pay for prospects
in the new camp, they can get
what they want in any of the
other big camps in this jurisdic
tion, such as Buffalo Hump, Klk
City, Dixie, Salmon river and other
adjacent mining districts.
As a matter of fact, Thunder
Mountain is comparitively more
easy of access than Buffalo Hump
was in the big boom of 18811. At
that time Lewiston was the near
est railroad point, involving a long
and tiresome stage journey of 75
miles from the railroad to Orange
ville. Under present conditions
the Clearwater Short Line reaches
the foothills of the mountains only
l(i miles north of (irangeville, with
a daily stago line affording Swift
transportation to this town. From
Orangeville wagon roads equipped
with good stage lines radiate in
tf every direction towards the new
gold fields, and it will be found
that Orangeville is the point to
wards r.vliich the' main travel will
gravitate as naturally as the needle
j points to the poie. Travel will al
- ways follow the lines of least re
sistence, which in this instance, |
means lowest altitudes aud quick |
dispatch, with facilities for outfit- j
' tiug and obtaining supplies for j
man and horse which no other :
community can approach in com- j
pleteness and cheapness.
Hitherto, much of the Thunder
Mountain travel has gone in from
the south, but the terrors of the
Secesh creek summit have
diverted much of it

that our Efforts in the Hardware and

by the Buying Public.
:
During the coming year we will spare no means in
making every line more complete, and in addition are
putting in many new lines. VVe have earned a reputa
tion for Best Goods, Lowest Prices and Upright Deal
ings, and on these lines we ask your help in making
igo2 the Banner year. Buying for Cash and Selling
for Cash, puts us in a better position to give you better
prices than the General Stores, because you pay the
bills (if those who never pay,—an undisputable fact,
f Again, the General Merchant has every line to look af
ter, and frequently sacrifices Quality for Price, usually
buying a Substitute, which is offered to the public as
being just as good as the Specialty House handles.
Whereas, we on the other hand make a specialty of
1 lardware and Harness, buying everything in the line,
' from the Cheapest that is good, to the Best the world
produces, and sell all at Uniformly Low Prices. We
i appeal to your instinct of making more money. You
J want to make a larger profit don't you? Well, you

• than by saving those already earned. We will help

and with the lapse ol time morel
and more of it will come this way
in accordance with the natural
laws we have specified,
northern route is conceded to be
the best and easiest, even by rival
points in the southern counties,
and their operations are now main
ly directed to holding such of the
travel from their immediate neigh
borhood as naturally belongs to
them. The Weiser people, for
instance, are talking of shoveling
out the snow over the Secesh creek
summit in the early spring in or
der to catch the first rush. By
either of the northern routes, via
Orangeville, we do not have to
shovel snow or' mud. The state
wagon road to Warren aud the
Caswell trail from Warren to
Thunder Mountain are both open
to travel at this time, and will be
kept open all winter. The route
via Salmon river is known as the
sunshine route, and is never cov
ered with snow at any time, its
only advantage being that there is
more trail travel to cover. On the
Klk City-Dixie route much of the
distance is along the Salmon river,
but it will he found that Orange
ville is the starting point for all
these routes.

have one large dike, two miles in
length, ranging from 200 to 700
feet in width. The values ran
from 92:50 to 950 a ton. There
are several high grade properties
also outside of the dyke and they
have in sight 1,000 tons of ore that
will average 91100 a ton. On still
another claim beside the dike they
have driven a tunnel 560 feet long,
which cuts the lead at a depth of
250 feet. The lead at that point is
35 feet wide, 10 feet of which
says 914 a ton, and the balance
about 94 or 95 a ton. William
Hogan acquired these olaims three
years ago and has been working
and developing them since that
time, Mr. Hogan managing for
both companies. - An assay office
has been erected on the ground.
The men working there have jnst
completed a water ditch which fur
nishes power enough for 200
stamps. The workmen are now
excavating for a mill. The Crook
ed river properties are located six
miles from the Buffalo Hump and
12 miles from Dixie. Just before
leaving Butte they placed an order
for a 10-stamp mill, several Wilfley
tables and other machinery and
supplies with Fred J. Reynolds,
