Albert More went through to Galena Wednesday. Fred Gooding puts up a new front to his butcher shop. Ketchnm has two Sunday schools and two 3ewiug societies. Mining matters begin to loom up, and husiness matters accordingly. Fresh oysters at the Bon Ton. Geo. Calluihan, the restaurant man, is finishing up the, Holland building in fine style. E. O. Wheeler is again in Ketchnm, having arrived on Wednesday's stage from Zion. The "Regulator" lias been closed sev eral days for repairs. It lias a new ceil ing nnd other improvements. The Keystone will do any kind of i printing and gaurantee to do if as chaep ! as it can be laid down from any place. Fresh oysters at the Bon Ton. * Mr. H. J. Hardess, the Philadelphia Company's metallurgist, returned from the East Wednesday. This looks like business. Haileyites pretend to be confidente?) that tho O. S. L. will not continue to Ketchum, but why do they worry so much about it? Maj. Wrn. Hyndmau, who has spent «everni months in the East taking in New York city, Philadelphia and Wash ington, is again at his post in Hailey. There is an unusual demand for fin ished lumber -this spring, and our lum bermen see the necessity of pnttihg their planing mills into operation us soon as possible. T. W. Gillette, Esq., our prominent hardware merchant, has returned from a visit to Suit Lake city. His family »till remains there, but will come to Ketchum in a few weeks. The Davit', on Deer ereek, and the Silver King, iu Sawtooth, says the News Miner, have been incorporated under the name of the Davitt & Silver King Min ing Co. "The D. & S. K. M. Co." What mines contribute most to the -metal market? Those run by close cor porations. One mine in Ketchum, the Eikhorn, netted about f îùu.ooo last year, and now has a better showing than ever. Gov. Bunn's paper, the Philadelphia Transcript supports Arthur for tiie Pres idency; of course. Why shouldn't he return good for evil? For such it is, and lie'll think so before he gets through with the fat thing in Idaho. Gapt. T. W. Buzzo, Superintendent of the Allen group of mines, returned Wednesday evening from Lis home in flan Jose, California. The Allen group hns beeu worked all winter by a force of ten men, and will now be developed at a great depth by a projected tunnel. Lftvell Dro«. Rill start their sawmill, on Wood Hiver, opposite Ketchum, next Monday. They have about 200,000 feet of timber on hand and will run steadily until the same is sawed. Thnt amount will supply the market for several weeks, end probably until such time as logging can bo resumed. New officers were elected at the Al turns Literary Society last night. Pres ident, The Rev. G. Ritchie; Vice Presi dent, J. Harbridge; Secretary and Treas urer, E. W. Jones; Corresponding Sec retary, H. II. Hill; Critic, Asa 8. Abbott; Marshall, George W. Banks. The socie ty will give a grand entertainment next Friday. ♦ Tiio concentrator recently purchased for the Silver King mine, says tho New s Miner. is ouo of the Broadfoixl eonceu mannfacturetl at Tamaqua, This concentrator is trators, Pennsylvania, more extensive than any yet introduced here, and will cost in the neighborhood of $20,000, Those who have examined the machinery say it is rather more a concentrating mill than a concentrator ,-f r. « r Thero la a rapid growth in Ketchnm, and It is fully warranted. In addition to the development of many new mines which promise to contribute very ex tensively to onr smelting industry this year, there are arising many sources of support in the way of general traffic be tween this and various tributary points. A A now piano, invented by M. Wilhelm In 1 Fischer, lias been out at Leipsic. outward appearance it resembles ucot tngft piano, and it has the ordinary ham- i mer action, but in lieu of the familiar ! strings tuning forks are substituted for j the purpose of procuring pure as well J as sustained tone. j _ , , . , ' Onr down-river neighbor is alarmed. ; She admits a fenrrul rival in the town of ' Ketchum, and begins to get very nor- ( vous. Very just cause, indeed. Her I „„a_ ! life depends upon scheme and strategy ; and fraud, but her mental resources are i h , . , pretty well exhausted. She never had ; any other kind. We mean Hailey, of ! course 1 Ret chum wilt have business competi tion in groceries, dry goods, drugs, boots end shoes, hotels and restaurants, hard ware, furniture, notions, and, iu f"ct, j every other branch of business. Our j business ho uses are all as extensive as any on Wood River. Tims Ketchum will retain an exclusive home patronage and no longer find it profitable to go abroad for anything. ■ i ! in of a Bayhorae Items. Roads getting very soft. One week from now tho freight line to Chaliis will leave runners at River Side 24 miles east of Ketchum. The Ramshorn mine is shipping cop per ore to Salt Lake city; 10.000 came to this point yesteiday by fast freight. The smelter is running full blast; at present chiefly ou Rumslioru ore. The Eikhorn aud Cinnabar mines also tribute. The snow on the Chaliis rood extends j to the Thousand Spring Valley on Lost ! River. Thence to Chaliis and Bayhorse I wagons are used, necessitating the handling of all freights at that point. con A man by the name of Heller claiming | to be «reexport teamster was employed j by the Wood River and Chaliis fast : , freight line at the latter place, bnt he , Bubsequently killed one horse on a grade and proved to be a perfect fraud—as a j Geo. W. Griffin, Cashier of the First National Bank of Ketchum, is expected j to arrive here with his family within a j few days. Tho bank s authority from ; tbe Controller of the Currency appears j iu to-day's issue. The bank is now | ready for business aud will be in suitn- j ble quarters shortly. A displayed ad- j vertisement appears in another column, j The bank will do a general banking j business and recognising the customs of a mining region, will make advance- ! inents on ores and bullion. Miners will ! teamster. The First National Rank. in many instances find this a very great ; advantage. The privilege of making time deposits drawing good interest will also be a convenience nnd inducement to many deriving the security of money on hand. The bank building will be a fire-proof brick with a good vault and safe. Religions. M. £.
