A revival of interest in the Lincoln <
mountain section of the camp will follow *
the proposed effort to reach the Hidden ‘
Treasure lode by means of an extension j
of the old cross cut started some years
ago. Intermittent work will now give
place to continuous development and a
good paying proposition should result '
from the opening up at depth, of a lode *
whose richness, at and near the surface,
was of the phenomenal order.
The erection of the shaft house, placing
of machinery and completion of the re- j
quired raise to convert the winze in the ;
tunnel into a surface shaft, will enable
the Nebraska-Union company to sink on
their Union claim, while maintaining the
steady shipments of smelting and milling
ores from the adit stope and breast where
bodies of fine grade are showing. The
several claims forming the group recent- j
ly acquired by the Nebraska people and |
including the Union, Horseshoe and the
Oregon, show every promise of develop- j
ing into one of the most productive on j
Silver mountain. On character, grade;
j and quantity the product from the pres-'
| ent openings is proving to he eminently I
satisfactory.
; The early success attained by recent
| purchasers of mining property at Empire
is exercising a natural effect upon others
j and has led to the placing under bond of
j quite a number of eligible propositions,
including the Cornet, Filibuster and the
' Gold Nugget groups on Silver mountain,
1 whose transfer would enlist a class of de
, sirable investors. '

How to Prevent Croup.
It will be good news to the mothers of
small children to learn that croup can be
prevented. The first sign of croup is a
hoarseness. A day or two before the at
tack the child becomes hoarse. Thin is
soon followed by a peculiar rough cough.
Give Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy free
ly as soon as the child becomes hoarse or
even after the rough cough appears and
it will dispel all symptoms of croup. In
this way all danger and anxiety may be
avoided. This remedy is used by many
thousands of mothers and has never been
known to fail. It is in fact the only rem
edy that can always be depended upon
and that is pleasant and safe to take. For
sale by J. J. Sherwin, druggist.

DEMAND FREQUENT REPORTS.
[FROM THE DAIEY MINING RECORD]
Several mining companies to our knowledge have adopted the very excel
lent practice of sending monthly reports to their shareholders. While we do
not favor the expenditure of too much company money in printed matter that
takes the form of hot air and gush for the purpose of getting the sharehold
ers to buy more stock, we do think that a moderate expenditure for the pur
pose of keeping shareholders posted on developments is company money well
invested.
The mining company owes it as a duty to its stockholders to keep them
fully posted regarding not only what is being done at the mine, but what is
being done with the funds. We have known of many cases where unlooked
for developments, not necessarily the fault of the management, have meant
an expenditure which, while legitimate, have been deemed of such a charac
ter that it were l>etter to acquaint the shareholder. The mauagemeut start
ing out with an honest intention to even things up gets deeper in the mire,
and then when the time comes for the shareholder to be acquainted with ex
isting conditions there is dissatisfaction and often disruption. Regular re
ports, correctly made, regardless of misfortunes, preclude disaster as well as
begetting confidence. Suspicion on the part of shareholders is invariably
disastrous to any company.
Idaho Springs Siftings has some remarks along these lines. That paper
says :
Eastern people who hold interests in mines in this district or an}’ other
in the state should make it a point and insist that reports be made to stock
holders every month regarding the progress of the mine.
And these reports should not be general, but in detail in every way. No
reason is there why they should not state the names and number of men em
ployed, the amount paid to each one and everything in connection with the
expense account of the mine.
A great deal of the misfortune the Eastern stockholder runs up against
can be attributed to the failure of mining companies to make a report show
ing what progress has been made, what the cost has been and everything in
connection with the mine.
Siftings believes the people who invest their cash in the mines of the dis
tiict or in any other district are entitled to know what is being done with the
properties and what it is costing to run them.
It stands every investor in hand to guard his interests. If you are inter
ested in a company that does not report progress, write and demand that it
shall do so. There is nothing in the conduct of honest companies that ought
to be held back.
Many of them do not report because it has not been customary.
Let the stockholders take these tips and protect their own interests.
This is the way to protect your holdings.
We believe with Siftings in publicity on the part of mining companies.
Shareholders have their pro rata interest in a mining company, as well as the
management. They are entitled to be kept fully posted. Publicity is the
greatest foe of the fakir, and as President Roosevelt has just proclaimed in
his message to congress :
“Publicity can do no harm to the honest corporation.”
of those financially equipped for the sys
tematic working of a mining property are
always desirable and the transfer of a big j
interest in the Monarch group, near the !
head of Mill creek, to George Cams, will 1
vest title to a very promising aggrega- j
tion of claims in two of Walsenburg’s ;
prominent merchants and insure devel 1
opment of a section tributary to Empire, j
The discovery of the property, consisting
of four claims, was made by William M.
Moore several years ago, but as the sur
j face showing was of silver-lead character
j work was at first coufiued to assessment
I requirements.
Later a cross cut tunnel was started
that has now penetrated over 300 feet and
which intersected the first lode at seven
ty-five feet from its mouth, where, to the
surprise of the workers, a rich streak of
! gold ore was encountered. This unex
| pected change in the product will render
| the group immediately available as a pro
-1 ducer of pay stuff.
| Prospecting of the other lodes indicates
; the presence of considerable bodies of
: milling material that can be profitably
I treated on the ground and reduced to a
| tonnage that would hear the expense of
transportation to the smelter. About 80
acres of placer ground are iucluded in the
holdings and a large lake near by will
furnish water required for gravel wash
ing.
Ample accommodations for housing of
workmen and other mining purposes are
erected. A town site w’ill be patented if
the finding of gold in new territory at
tracts the attention that usually follows
such discoveries.
Saved at Grave's Brink.
“I know I would long ago have been in
my grave,” writes Mrs. S. If. Newsom,
of Decatur, Ala., “if it had not been for
Electric Bitters. For three years I suf
fered untold agony from the worst forms
of indigestion, waterbrash, stomach ami
bowel dyspepsia. But this excellent med
icine did me a world of good. Since us
ing it I can eat heartily and have gained
thirty-five pounds.” For indigestion or
loss of appetite, stomach, liver and kid
ney troubles, Electric Bitters are a posi
tive, guaranteed cure. Only 50 cents at
