McNamara he gave the Tki-BcsR-iBiio tbe following informs tionTn reitftioa to that part of the Pioneer Mining District that lies between Min eral '-Hill and Box Canyon. ' "Yes," aid Mr. McNamara, "Mr. E. T.'SmUh and myself have secured by pttrohase and located 14 claims, aggre. gating over 500 feet of development work in the way of shafts, tunnels, dHfis, etc. " 14 In this district there is one vein fully 100 feet wide cutting the country froaa ocrthwest to southeast and traceaUa Iry the croppings for over two milea. This lode carries copper in sulphareta and will average from 4 per cent t 6. percent with about $10 in gold-and silver; this ore can be readily concen trated 20 to 30 into' one. I have- not yet made assays of the concentrates, but if it holds its valuea it. can be readily seen that the property can. be made to pay from the start. "We also have a group of Eve claims carrying carbonates of load and galena. Thesf veins are from & to feet v?irt and gave ly (ire as-saj from lO'pt-r cent to CO per cent lead with a biutill value in cold aud silver. "But in my judgment th-a best prop erty in the district is a discovery made by myself aud 'iaovrn a the Mint Morgan. Breaki ng a piece of orutuary looking float tb at proved to be almost pure chalcopyrete,. led to this dis covery, and wi th the aide of Mv. J. H . Brown the voio was soon found and proved to be fully 30 feet wide. Average st-.mples of the eroppinga yielded by ussay: copper 21 80 pe cent, gold 1.60 ounces, silver 0.50 ounces, making a total value of $117.24 pec ton. A -force of men will be put to work at once en Shis claim and tbe Minla Morgan will undoubtedly prove a pay mine from the start. "Throughout this section there is also considerable gold bearing quartz which, however, is notfree milling but amenable to-cyanide treatment. "There was a great rush to this dis trict and coaaiderable development was done during the halcyon days of the Silver King, 15 or 23 years ago. On the decline of silver work was discon tinued, aud indeed many of the prop-. ertiea were abandoned. "Ia these days little attention was puid to gold quartz in Pioneer District,, unless it was property free milling. Un fortunately the gold bearing rock will not plate 20 per cent of it value. You see 15, years ago very little was known about the cyanide treatment;, in fact, it bas only been in the laat fonr wr five years that it has been successful ly ctrated Now ores of the character that I've found in abuudaoce will been ordered .

The reports and findings of the special agents of the treasury de partment, Messrs. Converse J. Smith of Boston, and J. T.
