NEWS OF THE MINES.
EXTENSIVE ORE BODY. flynn Group or Claim Near Wallace to He Worked again. Wallace, Idaho, August 27. The Flynn group of claims are to be worked nonce The Flynn group consists of 22 claims, located in 1887 by the Flynn brothers. The claims are all on the big lead, which is clearly defined from the Helena-Frisco mine on the Canyon reek side to the Morning mine, and have a continuous lead of over two miles in length. Fourteen of the claims have been iiatented for several years aud tbe other eight are to be pat ented this fall, and aftei the survey has teen made Montana parties of unlimited capital will take the entire property on i bond and at once commence system atic development upon it. In tbe minds of mining men there .las never existed much doubt as to the Klynu group. It could hardly be pos sible that a break would occur in the mineral lead on which the claims are located, and at either end of which such bonanza ore bodies as the Helena Frisco and the Morning mines have apened. The Flynn group has two miles of this same lead, between these two big producers, and surely covers one of tbe greatest and most extensive ore bodies in the Northwest. A lot of work has been done on the property in the year since the claims have been located, but being a deep mine proposition, the owners have been unable to develop it into a producer. Last year a tunnel was run to tap tbe lead below tbe monster iron capping of the summit. This iron knoll is an elevation of fully 5,000 feet and covers an era almost as large as Wallace. Altogether over 6,000 feet of tunnel has been run on the various claims, and th- mineralization has been good in all of it. None of this tunnel worked was sufficiently extensive, however, to ex plore the ore bodies. On the Iron-Silver claim tbe lead was tapped with a tunnel of 404 feet. The faze of the tunnel was quite freely mineralized for a greater part of the distance. From the point where the tunnel cut the lead a drift of 110 feet was run, all show ing considerable ore. The ledge is about 30 feet wide, and the walls are in place and solid. A tunnel from the Canyon creek side in the vicinity of the Frisco would cut the lead on the "Flynn group at a depth of nearly 3,000 feet, and it has long been contended by practical mining men that this is the most advantageous point from which to open up the prop erty. LOOKING FOR IDAHO COAL. Would be a Bis; Thins; for the Railroads and for Lewiiton. The discovery of immense coal de posits near Lewiston Idaho, will it is believed, have great influence in tbe fu ture railroad construction in that sec tion. The deposits are located about 13 miles from the mouth of the Grand Konde river, and if the results of de velopment meet the elaborate indica tions, they promise to exert a material influence on the railroad situation in the Snake river country, says the Lew iston Tribune. The O. K. & N. Co., it is said, is anxiously investigating coal prosprects in the basins of the Co lumbia and Snake rivers with the hope of providing and adequate supply of coal for its system and if such is the case the discovery of a good qnality in sufficient quantity on the Grand Honde would be a most welcome devel opment to that road. OREGON COAL FIELDS. The Geological Survey Publishes a Late Report on Them. Washington, August 27. The coal fields of Oregon are thus summarized by the latest report of the geological survey: The coal fields of Oregon, so far as yet known, all lie west of the Cascade range and north of Rogue river. Most of them are among the mountains gen erally known in Oregon as the Coast range, bnt others occur at the western foot of the Cascade range. Four fields will be noticed the upper Nehalem coal field, in Columbia county; the lower Nehalem coal fields, in Clatsop county; the Yaquina coal fields, in Lincoln county and the Coos Bay coal fields, in Coos county. Traces of coal have been fond in many other parts of the state. The greatest hindrance to the development of the Oregon coal fields is the lack of transportation. Work Progressing on the Kimberley. The tunnel on the Kimberley, in the Kamloops, B. C, district, is in 327 feet. Last week a vein was struck on tbe top of the tnnnel, at a pitch of 45 degrees. Bunches of very good ore have been encountered, of ohalcopyrites and black oxides. The present vein matter is very much decomposed, but so far con siderably exceeds in value anything hitherto taken from the tunnel. This finishes the contract for the 100 feet ot driving. Work is still in progress, and will be prosecuted steadily. Road to Blue River Mines. Crews of men and teams have gone from Brownsville, Oregon, to build the wagon road from that place to the Blue river mines. Belays of men will be at work until the road is completed to the mountains. Copper in Union County, The copper fields in the eastern part of Union county, Oregon, are likely to become valuable property. Property being worked by the North American Mining Company shows ore bearing gray copp9r in good quantities. Re ports say that a great body of copper ore exists in this section. Thirty Thousand a Month. The Greenback mine, in Josephine county, Oregon, pays its owners $30, 002 a month in dividends. . Good Idaho Mine Being Developed.

Atlin District Claims Lots of the Free Milling Variety. Seattte, August 87. H. C. Diers. of Skagway, says that an average of 20 filings on quartz are made in the Atlin recorder's office daily. The general snccesss in placer mining and quartz locations in the camp this season, the feeling prevails in Atlin that the future of the district as a good permanent pro ducer is assured. Monroe mountain is producing rich free milling quartz, now being worked at Atlin. The mountain is eight miles from Atlin, an I not far from discovery on Fine creek. The quartz is being taken to the stamp mills of Lord Ham ilton and crushed. It yields from $20 to $90 a ton. The Anaconda property is not now being worked, and the mills which were set up there are engaged in doing custom work of the Monroe mountain ore. A telluride proposition is being opened a quarter of a mile from Atlin which promises well. It has a six foot vein. The nickel property at the south end of Atlin lake is a very extensive body. The percentage of nickel carried has not been ascertained. The statement that it was 40 per cent is not true. No nickel runs that high. LOOKING TO RED MOUNTAIN Gold-Studded Rock Obtained in Gold Basin Ledge. Seattle, August 27 Good tidings of the rapid advance of mining operations in the Mount Baker gold fields were taken to Whatcom by II. G. Anderson, who arrived from Bed Mountain, via j Chilliwack and Vancouver, B. C. Mr. i Anderson was one of the discoverers of ' tbe Anderson-Schrimsher gold ledge on Bed mountain. In the Blade he says j the prospects of the leading ledges in ! that district are most encouraging, and owners are pushing development work rapidly. Work on the Post-Lambert ' ledges has been suspended for a few days, awaiting the arrival of engines and fans with which to drive away the ! smoke which arises from constant blast- ing in the tunnel. All miners who ; have visited the property say that it is ', very rich. j The Gold Basin ledge on Red moun tain, in which Charles D. Lane, of San Francisco, and J. O. Carlisle are inter : ested, is said to be a veritable bonanza ' to tbe owners. Mr. Anderson met Mr. j Carlisle at Chilliwack and that gentle ) man told him that assays made from ore taken from the Gold Basin ledge run as high as $30,000 per ton. Tbe gold can be seen with tbe naked eye and stands out in beads on the quartz. It is similar to the quartz found in the Lone Jack ledge, owned by English & Son. It appears that the location of the international boundary line is in ques tion, and fears are entertained that Red mountain and other mountains in that vicinity may possibly be in Brit ish Columbia. According to field notes of Provincial Surveyor Dean, the line is supposed to cross at Box canyon at the confluence of East and West Silicia creeks. Oneis of claims at Red mountain have taken ont mining licenses in British Columbia and are also making filings at New Westmin ster in order to hold their claims in case they find that their claims lie in British Columbia. The Red Mountain Gold Mining Company has a large force of men at work driving a tunnel in to tap its ledges. Cabins are being built for winter quarters. ENOUGH ORE FOR TEN YEARS. The Monlo Cristo Company Will Soon Employ Store Men. Monte Cristo, Wash., August 2T. The Monte Critso Mining Company has about 60 men on the pay roll. The concentrator is nsing only one side of the mill, handling 70 'tons every 24 hours. Some repairs are being made and when done the mill will run its full capacity of 300 tons per day. The dynamo will start up in a few days, then the Burleigh drills will be at work. As soon as a raise is finished, so there will be more air and room, the force will be increased to 200 or 250 men. It is claimed that the Monte Crinsto Mining Company has enough ore in sight to keep the mines working for 10 years. A surveying party is at work on a line to bring more water to the mill. Dividend-Paying Mines. The following is a partial list of the dividend -pay ing mines of British'Co lumbia: Camp McKinley paid up to June, 1899, $312,964; the Fern, up to June, 1898, $10,000; the Hall Mines, Limited, up to May, 1899, $120,000; the Idaho, up to January, 1899, $292, 000; the Last Chance, up to April, 1899, $45,000; the Le Roi. up to No vember, 1899, $1,305,000; the Queen Bess, up to July, 1899, $25,000; the Rambler-Cariboo, up to December, 1890, $60,000; the Reco, np to Janu ary, 1898, $297,500, the War Eagle Consolidated, up to February, 1900, $545,250; the Ymir, up to November, 1899, $30,000.

Mining experts said in the Portland Talnrtrilm A nnnat 0 0 tVtat thflU Ka lieved the gold veins' in Eastern Oregon are permanent and of Brood depth. NO BACKWARD MOVEMENT. The Trade Situation Satisfactory, Con sidering Season. R. G. Duu & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: The sky is not cloudless; but there has been no backward movement of business this week. The chief draw back of the week has been the intense heat in some sections of the West, which was more efficient in retarding business than the lower temperature East, which is stimulating it. Crop advices continue as cheerful as at any time lately, and the labor situ ation shows no important changes in working forces. Prices are steady, but there is talk of a decline, perhaps $10 per ton, in, steel rails shortly, to a basis at which it is believed tbe railroads will be willing to place orders for the ensuing years' supplies. More good news comes from the great iron centers, where bridge and boatbniiders and makers of agricultural implements, stoves and cast iron pipe are all eager to secure finished or partially finished material. Prices are sustained, and in a few cases move upward. Iron, generally, is already a solid and better balanced market than for two months pas't. Another sharp decline has taken place in the price of tin, but copper is firm. Wheat declined still further, touch ing the lowest price since early in June. Corn is steady, but a drop last week makes the present price only four cents above that of 1899. Factories are still working only part lime in the Eastern boot and shoe dis tricts, and it is evident that eariler es timates of accumulated stocks were much to small. There is more activity in the hide market and prices are sustained by strong foieign quotations, activity in Chicago by California tanners, and fa vorabie purchases of harness. PACIFIC COAST TRADE.

Louisville had the luxury of two cen tral councils of labor for some years, and now they have concluded to amal gamate. M.

The colliery owners In Lancashire, England, do not like the eight-hour day, but tbe miners are solidly organized and the system seems to work well for all concerned. The Sunday closing movement, which has been pushed with much success In the grocery and meat market lines In Chicago, has spread to other branches with equally good results. According to statistics recently com piled tbe United States last year was the greatest producer of coal, salt, Iron, copper, silver and lead in the world. aud was also a leader in the production of many of the less important metals. An extraordinary development In re- fnrhiVTf,11 8 Wrk has COme to light in tne ract that 500 girls and women are employed in the foundries of Pitts- burg, doing work for $4 and $5 a week for which men were formerly paid from $14 to $16 a week. They are princi pally employed in coremaklng and "snap" molding shops. The States of Georgia, Texas and Mississippi have recently abandoned tbe system of hirlne out convicts and have employed them to advantage on farms, especially In raising cotton. This iorm or employment has been found to work the least injury to free labor and to assure the best returns. A profit has been made in each instance, and the farms have been free from the hard- snips ana cruelties. Laws prohibiting boycotting in speci fic terms have been enacted ln Colora do, Illinois and Wisconsin. In practic ally all other States, however, it Is not difficult to make boycotting a misde meanor. All that Is required is for an employer to enter the courts and claim that boycotters are conspiring to ruin his business, when an injunction is quickly Issued outlawing the boycott So special laws are hardly needed.

Fanny Janauschek, the fa mous tragedienne, was recently stricken with paralysis. Mme. Janau schek was born In Prague, Bohemia, and at the age of 18 was a favorite on the European stage. She made her first appearance In this country in 1867 and for four years acted in German. Then she mastered the English lan guage and turned her attention to Shakespearean tragedy, when her real career In this country began. In 1874 she revisited d this country ln 1880 and has since re- malned here. When not on her pro fessional tours she lives at 717 Jeffer son avenue, Brooklyn. As an actress she Is noted for her great power and fascinating personality. She has been successful ln many roles and her Lady FANNY J A.NAU8CHEK.

Protection, Weapon and Food Much Improved of Late Years. Although soldiering would seem to be a more perilous business than it ever was before, la consequence of the greater force, rapidity and range of weapons, and the' higher power of ex plosives, the result may show that mod ern battles are not more deadly than were those of the Civil War, since an attempt has been made to counteract the destructive forces by stouter pro tections ln forts and by a system of tactics that replaces the old solid for mations with something like the skir mish order of former times. It may be, also, that the troops will fight at fur ther distance, allowing for the longer carriage of bullets and shells. But of one thing we are certain. If the perils of war have, been multiplied the comforts of the camp have been increased until they are a partial offset.

Things to Say and Thing to Leave Un said in General Conversation. It is better to be frankly dull than pedantic. One must guard one's self from the temptation of "talking shop" and of' riding one's "hobby." Whatever sets one apart as a capital "I" should be avoided. A Joke or humorous storv is rienen- Talk that has heartiness In it and the liveliness and sparkle that come of llght-heartedness and innocent gayety, Is a fairly good substitute for wit Offer to each one who speaks the homage of your undivided attention. Look people In the face when you talk to them. Talk of things', not persons. Tbe best substitute for wisdom is silence. It is a provincialism to say "yes, sir, "no, ma'am" to one's equal. Have convictions of your own. Be yourself and not a mere echo. Never ask leading questions. We should show curiosity about the con cerns of others only so far as it may gratify them to tell us. Draw out your neighbor without cate chizing him. Correct him, If necessary, without contradicting him. Avoid man nerisms. . Strive to be natural and at ease.
