For years he has been a member of the

Copper Ores.
There are some copper miners in Altnr
as County, and other portions of Idaho,
who are interested in keeping posted on
the market values of that mineral. An
official monthly report from Liverpool.
England, just received, states that the
arrivals of copper iu that port have been
for the month just passed, very heavy,
aud that the deliveries of bar copper
have continued on an extensive scale.
The smelters are reported us acting very
cautiously in their purchase of furnace
material, influenced by fear of tho Amer
ican supplies, and that the business has
somewhat restricted
The total visible supply was
44,305 tons, not including charters due,
and the imports of copper from the first
of January, 1884, to date were 34,082 tons,
being an increase over the suaie time
last year of 5,207 tons.

Montana. He is reported as saying that
the "oopper market jn England depends |
altogether on the product of Moutunn,
and thnt there were 18,000 tons of cop- >
per shipped to England last year from
the United States, of which Montana
produced about two-thirds."
heretofore the largest producer of cop •
per in tho w orld, will, in his opinion,
bo surpassed by the output from the
United States this year.

thirty inches of the vein contains ore,
the lowest grade of which is 42 ozs., the
highest grade 2G0, and the average 132 |

gold and silica. The percentage of cx
j
ozs., silver, per ton.
This ore is com
cessive iron is from 20 to 40, rendering
the ore of a most desirable nature for
smelting. The gross cost of transport
ing and reducing the ore is estimated at
$16 per ton, and ore from other portions
of the vein that assays even much less
than the samples alluded to can be made
highly profitable at this rate. The body
is oxhaustlcs3. An increased force of
miners will soou be put to work on the
mine under A. H. Dollarhide, foreman.

; hereafter of six or eight tons, possibly
which will be shipped to the 1
