THE KETßHUM KEYSTONE,
Entered at the Postofilcc at Ketch urn, I. T. as second (-lass matter. TOWN Ttl.il NOS. Thunder again to-day. Ore continues rolling into the smelter at a lively rate. There are no less than a dozen new buildings up in town. We hear whisperings of the discovery of same more prospects. Grouse ure not so plentiful around Ketehum this year in last. Henry Baker, of the Hailey Times is on his way to Sawtooth. Geo. Metzler has received a line buss to put ou between here and the springs. Coshow is doing a good express busi- j ness between here and the Guyer springs. "Old Dad's" hack is loaded to its full capacity each way between here and Hailey. David Teachnor and partner were over j from East Fork of Wood Hiver Wednes day. J. J. Taylor was thrown from a horse Wednesday and he received slight in- juries in the leg. -lake Connors lias gone to take ore out of the Allen group of mines, on Warm Spring creek. Asa Abbott and J. E. Carne have gone to Hailey to settle a little difficulty be tween them before the District Court. The Baxter Hotel Register continues to show the arrival from all parts of va rious strangers, mining men and artisi aus. Metcalf, of Sterritt & Metcalf, of Hai ley, and Connelly, of Motherwell saloon, are visiting Ketehum on business aud * pleasure. John Foster was in town last evening from his mine near Boulder to secure a pack-train to convey a shipment of ore to the Philadelphia smelters. The old Holland saloon is rented to Eoeeman <fc Perkins, of Hailey, who will open a first-class saloon. They think Ketehum is the best place on the River. The mule teams of Mr. Sharp, who transported the "Fisher" gold mill from Bonanza to the East Fork of Salmon River, returned homeward bound last Tuesday. The Keystone Chop House is possessor of a crayon artist of no meager skill. Iiis bill of fare board is always tastily arranged, and we believe fully sustained in table goods. C. MoVickar, the jeweler, has been constantly busy in repairing watches, Ac., since opening in the express office building, and seems to give good satis faction in iiis work. A social party took place at the Guyer Springs Wednesday eveniug, where gaiety, dancing and refreshments were in order. .We acknowledge the pleasure of uu accepted invitation. The Hailey Times thinks ore speci mens with ten per cent, native white silver are something so usual on Wood River as to elicit no praiser. We haven't seen any yet, notwithstanding tho fact that we have visited all the best mines. Mr. E. Greene, the artist who has been making a drawing of the Philadelphia smelters, bird's-eye view came into the Keystone office -iiis morning with the result of his work. It is reduced to 16x22 inches, and is the best drawing of natural and artificial scenery we have produced in this country. In fact, it is approximately a perfect likeness. Tho Silver King mine, in Beaver gulch, Sawtooth district, has been sold to Mathew X. Scott, of the Davitt, for $120,000. The Silver King was account ed at the time of its discovery in tho Keystone, which from time to time 1ms hud occasion to make its improvement. It 1ms developed into a highly produc tive mine and produced about $35,000 worth of milling ore. Lew Walker, the colored gentleman who located ICO acres as a homestead on the site of the Hailey desert land, in cluding a portion of that town, will have his suit with the Idaho Land improve ment Company in the present session of the District Court. His lawyers feel as sured that should the District Court, and even the Supreme Court of Idaho, de cide against him, the U. S. Supreme Court will certainly decide in his favor. Henry Ward Beecher's traveling man ager has decided to use all possible per suasion in effecting a visit of that cele brated gentleman to Wood River. He is billed for Butte August 17th, and if he comes to Wood River, will probably speak in one of the lower towns about September 1st. If we are favored with this great trent the people of Wood River will have a rare opportunity to hear and see a great man whose history, in various lights, lias won for him a wonderful popularity. SALE OS LITTLE SMOKY. The Silver Star mi l Salamander Muir» ' Solti to ill« Philadelphia Co. for $51,- I 000 Cash. The Probable Construction of a Wagon ! Item! iij> Warm Spring Creek by Fri- ! vote Enterprise —The Proper Company has A Hold on the Best Mines in Little Smoky. i The silver Star and Salamander mines, located on Little Smoky, have been sold to ^the Philadelphia Company, place, for a cash payment of $51,000 by Messrs. Steven Longebine, land and Frank Case, the f These gentlemen are well known early day packers of Montana. The Silver Star mine has long been sought by various capitalists, and is con sidered one of the host mines in that re of this Danns New uer owu ers. The ore is g with more or less native silver, and is beautiful to smelt. >na and carbonates, F ll) n. The mine is devel oped by two 100-foot shafts about 100 ha t apart ana a shaft of less depth about 500 feet from tho first, all on the ledge, which is thus shown to be continuous and permanent. The vein is large, eraging about six feet in width, and con sists chiefly of ore that pays handsome ly in reduction. The Silver Star aud Salamander mines are in a vicinity of good prospects, a fine mineral belt, con sisting almost entirely of lead ores. This transaction is a most important one to the town of Ketehum, in as much as the managers of the Philadelphia Co. are live, energetic men whose opera tions in that vicinity will throw open to this point a large mineral tributary. It means that the right company has se cured the right property, and will lose no time in constructing a wagon road up Warm Spring creek for the transpor tation of Little Smoky ores. It means, further, that this will greatly accelerate the mining operations in that part in as much as the obstruction of no outlet to av that rich country is dispelled and the mines are placed within easy access to a good, profitable market. The Hailey road scheme is thus demolished. Pri vate enterprise taking a hold of this road building from this point settles tho difficulty of mines in that part and throws the travel this way before any other is opened. This is something we have great reason to praise. It is said the mines purchased by the Philadelphia Co. in Little Smoky have sufficient ore in sight to run two ordi nary furnaces f<^ - an indefinite time. Since putting the above in type we learn that the transfer was made to Mr. Rhodes, of the Philadelphia Co. Personals. L. Smiley came in from Elkhorn Thursday. Asa Abbott and Pat. Furey left this place for Sawtooth Thursday. Henry Ward Beecher is expected to Wood River about September 1st. J. F. Davis was down from Vienna on legal business Wednesday evening. W. W. Stevens has stepped out for a few weeks "rustication." E. W. Jones becomes foreman of tho Keystone of fice. Thomas Tague was recently down on a visit from Vienna, T. B. Mulkey is down from Sawtooth. I Col. Brodhead passed through from j i I j j j Sawtooth to Hailey yesterday. J. V. Easley and daughter. Miss Nellie, were visitors to Ketehum Thursday. E. D. Farrow, surgeon of the Salt Luke Surgical Institute, came to Ketehum as per appointment Thursday. He quartered at the Baxter Hotel and se cured treatment of several cases. His methods seem very successful in the treatment of chronic diseases of the eye! ear, throat, etc. I I i OiK'iiing. The drugstore of James More is now opened up in an admirable style. It is j without doubt the best finished I aud best stocked establishment of ! the kind on Wood River. Mr. More's ! manner of opening up business is busi- j uess-like and permanent. His stock in cludes almost every thing in the line of drugs, medicines, toilet articles notions ; an A fine cigars and liquors. In connection with his establishment ! j ! j i j ; Mr. J. B. Reiff has on permanent exhi bition without doubt the finest stock of jewelry and watches in Idaho. A first- j class jewelry store, including gents' and i ladies' fine gold and silver watches to- i goods as are in demand by the general i populace, is something long wanting on ; Wood River, and now that the place is i supplied it is but proper that the enter- i prise is well patronized. There is no j longer any necessity of sending orders j aWaj '_ I Tho receipts of bullion in Salt Lake I city for the week euding July 18th, in-, elusive, amounted to $107,038.44; of ore, $16,0C0j in aggregate, $123,098.44. gother with such other precious metal A SAWTOOl ÏI SALE. ' The Silver King Mine Sold for $125,000. ! I ! ! The Silver King mine, in Beaver gulch f Sawtooth district, has boon sold to i Mathew T. Scott, of the Davitt, for $125, 000 . The Silver King was accounted in the Keystone at the time of its <lis CO very, and we have had from time to make note of its aeveopment. which has resulted in occasion « highly productive mine, duced about AO,000.worth of millig ore, .most of which now lies on dump. This ore avera It has pro s in value 100 ozs., and often contains large samples worth 400 ozs., per ton. It was reported sold to E.H. Hendrick, Mr. winter, but these gentlemen held only a bond on (he mine until they succeeded ! in transferring it at a good margin. The mine is but a few miles from the mill of lloruia and others last the Columbia and Beaver Co., which af fords it an excellent and permanent market. It is surrounded with every natural advantage and easily accessible. Mining Notes. THE IIAUD TAOH Is a location on the rich copper-silver glance vein mentioned in the Keystone last Saturday as being discovered on Trail creek. It has been leased, we un derstand, to George Montgomery, who is putting mincis to York to extract ore for shipment. It is certainly one oi the finest showings in the country, and pro- ; Bents paying quantities of this ore, which often goes 900 and 1,000 ozs. per ton. THE ANTELOPE Is a galena lode well developed and pos sessive of lead ore in large quantities at the present' time. Tire work done con sists of a 100-foot shaft, vein. The showing is fine, gomery is tapping tire Mattie lode with a tunnel, which now extends 100 feet and will soon reach the ore. THE LUCKY BOY, on the Mr. Mont Ten miles from Ketehum, on Thompson creek, a tributary to Warm Spring creek, was discovered and located July 27th. It shows a well placed ledge of iron and galena, containing very profit • able quantities of the latter even within 20 feet of the surface, in the breast of tunnel No. 1. Some of tho ore is black sulphurets and very rich* while tho greater portion is galena high in lead, Mr. M. M. Harris, the owner, tells that tho vein of solid galena ore has re centiy become nearly a foot wide. The ledge is several feet and the walls are perfect. US L. Coshow's interest in the Silver Crown mine, on the East Fork of Wood River has been bonded to Himes, of Ketehum, who, with Herman Hiliebrande, part owner, are commencing to develop the same. Thie mine is the third extension of the North Star mine, sold by J. O. Swift to the Philadelphia Company for $50,000, and in a few weeks we expect to hear of a great change in the Silver Crown as Himes and Hiliebrande have put a force to work and continue the old works, which were stopped this spring on count, of water, which now has been overcome. A. • at; Dr. Loclfe and son Jimmy have taken I out a large lot of shipping ore from j their claim near the Nevada mine, on l>ig Smoky, and were in Ketehum yes teeday to arrange for shipment of the same to the Philadelphia smelters, will require pack animal transportation, aud probably amount to fifty or Seventy tons. The mines of Galena are beginning to i ship ore to the Philadelphia smelters in I good quantities. j A new strike, four miles from Keteh j um, was made this week about 2,000 feet j westerly from the North Btur mine, It * I -, the past Fork of Wood River, bv Pat. I Burns, Harry Frost and Sailor Jack, and i known tts the Clipper No. 2. The ledge on j I ! ! j ; ! j is strong, running iu lime and slate. I The ore is galena and iron two feet wide j in the first opening, 18 inches in the I second opening, which is 2Ü0 feet from ! the first.
