It is just four years since the capi talization of the DeLamar company, operating mines and millsat DeLamar, Idaho, was réduced from 82,000,000 to $400,000, says the London corres pondent of the Engineering and Min ing Journal, the idea being to bring down the nominal capital to the actual value of the assets, so that, if another property was acquired the company would not be overweighted with capi tal. Since then the profits and divi dends have been most regular, amount ing in all to 81.5 per cent on the 8400. 000 capital, a performance which is highly satisfactory to the shareholders. During the year ended March 31 the date of dividends was 25 per cent. During the yeaf 37,40? tons of ore wore treated, yielding 16,687 ouuces of gold and 39,231 ounces of silver, realizing 8366.000. The total costs at the mine were about 8250,000, and after deduct ing Loudon expeuses and taxes, a net profit remained of approximately 8100.000. The precentage of extraction is about 85 per ceut gold and 45 per cent silver. The way that the mine has continued to live after the reduc tion of capital reflects much credit on the ability of Mr. Orford in following stringers and opening up old filled stopes. The company is looking after new properties, but the ouly one ac quired, the Afterthought, did not turn out well and the cost has beeu written off. * Thilo Nette and J. L. luglis, owners of the Burro mine, have purchased the Scales interest in the Scales & Wagner arrastre and will soou begin workîhg ore from that property. * * William Lacharity has just bad fif teen tons of ore from his Johu-Bill and Plunger claims, run through at the Addie mill. While no returns have been had as yet, the owuer is confident he will get good values, allhough he does not anticipate that it will go so high as predicted by mauy others who have oeen the rock. * * The outlook at the Banner continues most favorable as (development prog resses. The vein shows up seven to eight feet wide with good values, iu the upper tunnel, where the the principal work has beeu done.' The new com pany is receiving most flatteriug en couragement everywhere the stock has beeu offered for sale. * * * J. F. F. Hale was in from Oreaua, Tuesday, aud says he talked with Mr. Hodges, a few days since, who, with othea Nampa parties, have made a big discovery near Black Butte, on Castle creek. They are down 21 feet and have uncovered 36 feet of the ledge without finding the walls. No assays havejbeeu had but Mr. Hodges reports that it looks very rich. » * Fred H. Davis, of Nampa, was in towu this week aud reports that him self aud Messrs. Lamsou and Harmon, of Nampa, have secured a fifteen months option on four claims owued by the Goodman boys, on Castle creek. Very high assays have been secured from some of the rock aud it is prob able extensive work will be done on the property iu the near future. * « * Hadsel Dye made what may prove to be a valuable discovery below Dewey, this week. The vein is ouly about the width of a lead penoil but is exceeding ly rich. Quite a showing of gold was panned from a small haudful of the rook. Mr. Dye will do some more work on the claim and if the vein should widen sufficiently to furnish the ore iu auy quantity he will have a find worth talking aboui. Editors Robbed. A dispatch from Oakland, Cal., July 25, to the Boise Statesman, says: with members of the party robbed, tired, worn and an hour uud 40 miu utes late, the members of the Idaho Editorial Association came in from Portland last night. The party was met at the depot by Captains Gleason and Martin, of the San Francisco police, who collected evidence prior to arrests to be made at the request of M. S. Parker, secretary of the editorial association. The stealing occurred some time during Sunday night while the party slept aboard their special train. There was hardly a passenger in thJ coaches that did not miss some thing in the morning. Bert H. Hill of Idaho, lost 8100; another person lost 860, and a Lbird au overcoat with.830 in Change in the pocket. It remained for O. V. Badley, of Caldwell, to tell the story of the greatest and most incon venient loss. He stated that when be retired Sunday he placed his false teeth in his pant's pocket, a thing he had never done before, and upon wak ing up found that both were gone. San Francisco and special police of the Southern Pacific, railroad were no tified. So far there have been no ar rests. Today the party visited this city and in accordance with their program they started from Key Route pier at 10 o'clock this morning. The party went to Berkeley and ther. came to Oakland. They had lunoheon at the Metropole hotel and then went to Alemeda. From there they went on a fast train to Haywards, returning to San Francisco direct. for of SOCIETY. While many are just now taking their summer outiug at nearby resorts where trout fishing and the shade of pine trees are accessible, others at tending the world's fair or at the beach, tending to make this the dull season, there have been many enjoy able social events the past week. Mrs. S. D. McLain was the hostess at an enjoyable whist party yesterday afternoon.

Sheep Market Ta.kes a. Drop. Chicago, July 24.—(Special corres pondence.) Buyers last week ham mered the market ou yearlings auu spring lambs to the tune of 75 cts. @ 1.00, while strictly prime lambs escaped with about 50 cts. loss and sheep sold off 25@50 during" the week. This week opened with the liberal run of 22,000 head and sheep sustained a further drop of lo@25 cts. today, while lambs sold 25@40 cents off. Trading was very slow on this basis and at a late hour a good mauy lambs were uusold. A baud of Idaho wethers averaging close to 100 lbs. sold at $4.80, whereas late last week they would easily have brought $5.00. There is a good de mand for desirable feediug stock aud same shows relatively less decline thau killers. Some very fancy 101-lb Idaho ewes sold at $4.85 aud two doubles of choice ewes from the same sectiou sold at $4.75. A small bunch of 115-lb. Idaho wethers topped the market at $5.10, but $5.00 may be regarded as practically top for western sheep. Re ceipts included u good mauy Idaho lambs, several very choice lots averag ing around 64 lbs. going at $7.00, while 1,000 head weighing 70 lbs. brought $6.90 aud there were a number of sales at $6.50@$6 65. The lamb market has beeu hit very hard the past few days aud the outlook is not specially en couraging for any marked improve ment as receipts will no doubt be lib eral from now on. We hope, however, to see the downward movement checked and possibly some reaction this week. REYNOLDS. Milton ('Brothers is over from Oreana for a few days. Geo.
