Frank Avery, a stockman from the Jun iper country, was in here on a short busi ness trip the first of the week. C. M. Hays returned last evening from a trip in the Bruneau country. On his way home he stopped in Boise a couple of days. Fritz Schleifer, our prosperous brewe r, has had a crew of men at work repairing and otherwise improving his ice pond for the winter. Mrs. Minnie Weston left here Monday , for Boise, to attend a meeting of the Re publican State Central Committee at that place this week. The Nugget shop, being well equipped with a good line of display type of differ ent kinds, is now more capable than ever to take care of your job work. Otto Peterson and Chas.

Walter McCoy, a stockman of Lowry, this county, was taken into custody and lodged in jail here the first of the week by our sheriff, upon complaint of some of his neighbors, who asserted that the had lost his mental faculty, and upon amination of our physician was adjudged insane, and yesterday morning was taken to the insane asylum at Blackfoot by Sheriff Krieg. Henry Stevens and wife have taken up their abode on the Trade Dollar Extension property, where he will do considerable development work this win ter. This property is a part of the hold ings of the Idaho Development Co., and it is to be hoped that a showing will be made that will justify them in doing con siderable more work in showing up the merits of this part of the company's hold ings here. re as are we man ex now 1 — ' THE BANNER. Increased attention is now being paid to the development of this property and its mineral resources continue to show a marked improvement and an increase in the value of the ore as work progresses. The rich strike recently made in the 100 continues to improve as depth is attained and there is every reason to believe that the day is not very far distant when this property will be known as a dividend producer. Now that the new pieces to the com pressor have arrived, work has also been resumed again in the mill level tunnel to cut the ore shoot which has been encount ered in the upper workings and which will require only about 150 feet more of crosscutting. What the vein will be when it is reached in the lower workings can only Ire a conjecture as yet, but the writer and others predict that it will be fully as rich here. We dare say that some of the ore which we have seen will assay from $200 and upward. We have refrained from commenting too strongly on this re cent strike, preferring to await the ex pected result at least until the fact had been demonstrated to the satisfaction of our most reputable experts.

Rooster Comb District Shows Some Good Ore Nampa, Sept. 15.—There is continued | activity in tlie mining section about Roos- i ter Comb mountain in Owyhee county and the properties that have been worked in a more or less dilatory manner in that district for a number of years are being developed in a way that is bringing about a clear understanding of the real mining worth of the district. The past year has seen more actual de velopment and proofs of the real worth of tlie properties than all the former years together and it is now being freely pre !™n_ dieted by those well acquainted with the showings that there will be a second De Lamar district in Owyhee county. G. A. Bergh returned from there to-day and he brings some encouraging reports of the recent showings. The well known Bergh mine that has made good showings in former times is now a full fledged mine with proper de velopment and splendid ore bodies. A new mill is in operation and some evi dences are coming out on the plates that show splendidly. The ledge is running #100 per ton and the ore bodies are large. There is no longer any question about the reality of that mine. While at the camp the past week Mr. Bergh with Joe Tate, located a newly dis covered claim that shows exceedingly rich ore, the gold being plainly visible to -LJ1-.Ü1L the naked eye and spatterings of gold are ; evident on any rock from the ledge. says from no picked sample have given returns of $1200 per ton. The ledge was not exposed bdt was uncovered at a few feet below the surface. It is exceedingly rich. As- j The Sweatland mine, in the same vic inity, is showing exceedingly fine. The development work has been done system atically and on an extensive scale. Large bodies of rich ore have been blocked ont and next season will see some important operations at that mine. There lias never been a better showing, so the experts are saying, for any mining district in that county and a lively camp is sure to spring up there during the com ing year. The present mines indicate it. —Capital News. Assesswble Mining Stock The Mining Review has always been in favor of assessable mining stock, and it has always tried to point out toits readers the dangers attending a corporation laying stress upon the fact that itsstoek is "fully paid and noil-assessable." This term ap peals very strongly to the inexperienced investor, but it is generally the case that, in due course of time, he finds his hold ings to be practically worthless and not even a good substitute for wall paper, and for the reason that the company in which he is interested generally finds that its treasury fund is not adequate for the placing of its property upon a producing and profit making basis, and not being able to raise money by assessments, either passes into the hands of a receiver, or what. is about the same thing, passes out of existence, losing its property and all of the cash put into the enterprise. In answering a correspondent who asks for information concerning assessable stock, the Boston Commercial gives an swer so much in accord with our ideas on the subject that we reproduce the same, as follows: "The stocks of all the Lake Superior mining companies were made assessable at the outset, excepting only Isle Royale, Aracadian and Elm River. The first of these raised additional capital through a consolidation, and is now in debt to tlie extent of approximately $100,000. The other two have been reorganized and their stocks made assessable. Quincy alone reached the dividend stage without I calling a single assessment. ! i "The mining companies of Butte, Utah i | and Arizona issued their stocks as a rule i full paid and non-asseseable. A few com- 1 panies have been reorganized in order to j insert the assessable clause. Others have raised money through bond issues; and i several of them have issued new stock : from time to time until their eapitaliza- ; ! "Our contention, in our issue of Aug- : ust 6, that assessable mining stocks are ' tions have become decidely unwieldy. preferable, is based on the old fashioned j common sense idea that mining is like j any other business. An individual who . goes into business only to And later that the capital requirements are greater than he originally expected, either draws on his outside investments, or in some other way raises money to carry his enterprise through to a paying basis. The stock holders of a mining company should put themselves in the same position, and be prepared to subscribe additional funds quickly should the occasion require it. "In actual practice all kinds of stocks indirectly are asessable. If they are is sued full paid and the company later gets into financial stress so that a reorganiza tion becomes necessary, the stockholder is obliged to pay part cash for new stock, of which he perhaps gets fewer shares, and in this way he virtually pays an as sessment. His company does not get the full advantage of his contributions in this ; way, however, as reorganizations are nec j essarily slow and very expensive, while assessments cost little more than postage, clerk hire and stationery. ' 'Tlie assessable feature has a tendency to save many companies in time of stress, and start them on a profitable career. It also operates automatically to prevent ex cessive capitalization. For illustration, assume a company with 500,000 shares ; sold orginally at $3 and marked full paid, After property account and promotion has been taken care of, assume that $500,000 is left for the treasury. Though the prospects of the property are good and the stock has sold up as high as $12 or $15, when it becomes common knowl edge that new capital will have to be raised, the stock rarely fails to have a very decided decline. This would pos sibly make it necessary to issue new stock at a very low price, and thus expand the capitalization much more than would be warranted. On the other hand, ail as sessment of $2 a share would give this company $1,000,000 without increasing its share capital at all. As a specific case, Calumet & Hecla stock was assess able, and though only $12 a share was called and paid in, iu one year alone this company paid $100 asliare iu dividends." —Mining Review.
