A pleasant occasion was that of the surprise party at DeLamar last Friday night when J. J. Bennett was presented with a gold watch and chain, valued at more than $200, by the miners of that mine. Mr. Bennett has been for more than 18 years in that mining camp, seven years of which he acted in the capacity of superintendent. Recently he resigned that position and moved to Boise, men who had been under his vision for so many years desired to The er super ex press to him I Heir kindly feelings and took this method of doing Sothern, wiio succeeds Mr. Bennett superintendent, presided, and made the presentation speech, highest grade "Howard" iiunting 18 karat. 1 Mr. and Mrs. Bennett came DeLamar to Boise last night, and now located at 1104 East Bannock street, where they will be at home to their friends. Mr. Bennett was at one time her of the legislature from Owyhee coun ty and has been quite prominent in years past in politics. But for the last ten years he has been occupied In his profession in the mines. It is his inten tion to take a long-needed rest, but he will do some work along the line of his profession.—Statesman, Oct. 6, 1911 The removal of Mr. Bennett and fam ily from this countv causes this locality to loose one of its best citizens, lie has located in Boise—which by the way, is only an addition to Owyhee County—he is practically yet oue of ns.

Another crushing will be taken out before the snow falls of sufficient depth to prevent getting the ore to the mill. The cross cuts on the 200 level have shown large bodies of ore on which they are nowdriftfng. They are also cross cutting from the bottom of the shaft on the Tip Top and expect to Boon encounter the same vein from which Sullivan is extracting such rich ore on the adjoining property which he recently leased from the Trade Dol lar Co. The ore on the part, of the vein where opened up shows extra good val ues and there is no doubt that the Tip Top is sure to produce a large amount of very rich ore. As soou as the Banner mine is developed sufficiently to work to advantage enough miners to extract ore in quantity to keep the mill stead ily running, the stock holders will begin to realize dividends that will soon repay them for their investment. FLINT The development on the Elias Meyers Mines is being rapidly pushed and the mill level tunnel is being re-timbered which will be completed this week, force of sixteen men are employed in the mine and preparations are being made for the erection of transformer and compressor houses, and the power line is being put up as rapidly as poss ible. A Within the next two weeks the mine will be equipped with electric pow er and the drills started at work in the face of tlie tunnel which will be driven ahead about 1000 feet to cross cut the other veins on the property. Mr. Morgan expects to have the tun nel in by the 1st. of March and in the early spring will commence opening the j three immense veins of ore for extrac tion, by runniug levels, making upraises, and other necessary work to block nut the ore so that it can be readily mined. As soon as spring opeus tbe mill will be remodeled and enlarged and new machinery installed to increase the capa city to 200 tons per day.
