At Flint, Rich Gulch and the mine of the Silver City Company, every advantage is being taken of the grand weather we are now enjoying. The I other locations are all more or less act ive, with optimism rampant. ! The Banner The mill run has been finished and clean-up is in progress at the Banner. Fine ore is being taken out of the 200 , level. Mr. Steele expects to have anoth er mill run before Christmas. Big Sugar Loaf $714.32 was the amount that the three claims of the Big Sugar Loaf Mining Co. bought at sheriff's sale last week. They were bought in for tiiat amount by At torney Healy, acting for A. P. Nugent. This dissolves the company and the property reverts to the principal owner. Eeast Creek J. W. Shores, of Portland, owner of the claims 'at East Creek, visited his properties there last week. He has a force of men developing the mine, which is claimed to be a very promising loca tioflfc Mr. ( Shore filed bis proofs of laboron tke Aurida, Effie, Cecelia, For tuna and Diadem claims in the Flint -Mining District. Boulder C. C. Hedum has just returned from a trip to this big property and has pdt in supplies for the winter work. Tne claims, about thirty in number, consti tute one of the largest bodies of low grade ore in this section. It is located about ten or twelve miles from Silver and adjoins the old Hardiman ranch, now occupied by the Duvalls on Boulder Creek. It is in the Steele Mining Dis trist, and is about three miles from the F^lint workings. Boulder has many natural advantages that should help the proposition im mensely. There is plenty of water either for use or for power purposes, and lots of timber. The mineral belt is about a mile wide and shows an average value of about ten or twelve dollars. The workings are all surface and assays run from $4.50 to $134.60. The veiDS vary from 2 feet to 44 feet wide. C. C. Hedum and J. D. Demming are the principal owners of the Boulder Creek locations. The property will re quire capital to develop it, but the workings, being mostly surface, present! no engineering problems, either of com plexity or expense, in fact the operations are more like quarry work than mining. The values are nearly all gold and the veins are so wide tbat immense bodies of ore can be taken ont in short time.

D. Page. This company has had a somewhat tempestuous existence, and was until cently a strong competitor with the (Jem Irrigation District for the privilege of putting water on a big section of the land to be watered by the Gem District. The final blow to the hopes of the company in this direction came when thé Land Board in Boise a month or so ago refused to wait on the Idagon people any longer and recognized the Gem Irrigation Dis trict as the parties best qualified to do the work. This result came about large ly through the untiring effort of C. S. Faurot, former secretary of the Gem, and who worked early and late to the end company, rec are and consist of the way, owner re finaI 'y accomplished. H. D. Page was the head arK ' front oi the lda b'°n Company and purchased from W. H. Schenek the original ditch due to the efforts of the latter, together with certain water rights and rights of way. Mr. Page interested considerable capital in the undertaking and had not the efforts of Mr. Faurot culminated successfully would have un doubtedly been able to put water on the lands.
