John Gilman writes from Worces

been very dull all over the East, is
picking up. In Michigan good pine
lumber sells at the mills for only %6 to

ot wheat does not repay the cost of

to ship rails out here for his narrow

Professor Brashear was indorsed, the

sequence is that four-fifths of the pu

A Tributary that will Produce Much

The Montana is showing up im
mensely. It will be remembered that,
some months ago, the leasers were
driven out, by water, from a winze
which was already down 3U feet in a
vein of gi'jiy copper. The owners
thereupon started a tunnel 70 feet
below the bottom of the winze, to
drain it. After cutting to the ledge
ail ore-vein varying from three inches
to two feet in width was cut into, and
a raise started. This raise is now up
35 feet, in ore all the way. As the
tunnel, was run in ore along the vein
60 or 70 feet before the raise was
started, it is evident that the orc-lody
opening up is 70x100 feet, anyway,
by a varying thickness. This is a bo
nanza in itself. A stope 100 feet
high of gray copper ore, would be a
good thing for any mine.
The Mount View tunnel is progress
ing, in good prospects.
On the Bon Ton bunches of ore
are rewarding the leasers.

THEY STAND PAT,
And Will Insist on $4 for a Day's
Since the shutting-down of the
Minnie Moor* and Queen of the Hills
mines, the miners of Broad ford have,
through committees, consulted with
the miners along Wood River regard
ing the situation. Last Saturday
evening a delegation from the Broad
lord Miners' Union went up to Bul
lion, to attend a joint meeting with
the Bullion Miners' Union. The re
sult of tiieir deliberations lias not
transpired; but this much is known,
to wit: The miners have resolved to
stand "pat" on the $4 a day rate of
wages, and expect to be indorsed by
every miner on the river.
ALTI RAS'S FIRST SEAT.
was at Esmeralda, a l'lace
Even Known To-Day.
Some of the county wairants re
deemed last year were so old that they
were dated at Esmeralda, which was
the first county seat of Alturas. This
place was located on Junction Bar,
about eight miles from Rocky Bar.
But as there remained no inhabitants
there, the county officials, one fine
day, took it into their heads to move
the county seat to Rocky Bar. So,
taking up the county records, they
rented a place at the Bar, which thus
became the seat of the county govern
ment. This is how they moved coun
ty seats in olden times.
Not a house now marks the spot of)
the old county seat—Esmeralda—and
even the old-timers remember very
little about it.
