Prcsldsnt niller, of the Smelter
Company Returns.
"That there is copp?r already expos
ed in the Snake river district of suffic
ient richness and extent to justify the
erection of a smelter, we do not be
lieve there is the slightest doubt. In
fact, there is ore to keep a half dozen
smelters busy. Transportation facil
ities alone are required to put the
district into the steady producing
This was the statement made yes
terday to a Tribune reporter by Mr. J.
T. Miller, a capitalist of Chicago and
Sterling, Illinois, who is president' of
of the Eureka Gold Mining and Smelt
ing company, .recently organized for
the purpose of erecting a smelter at
some point on the upper Snake river.
Mr. Miller returned here Saturday
evening from a trip of inspection to
the Imnaha district, and will leave
this morning for the cast. He was
accompanied on the trip by John
Olson, a mining expert, and Mr. Win.
Strow, a hydraulic engineer.
"We, of course, had been previously
informed regarding the ores of the
district," said Mr. Miller, "and our
vfcit was made on matters directly
connected with the installation of the
smelter. However, I wish to state
that the smelter is an impossibility
until transportation is afforded. The
idea of getting heavy machinery into
that country under pi esent conditions
simply cannot be entertained, and its
operation, without convenient trans
portation facilities, could not be un
dertaken. When the smelter r.nm-
piny was organized we understood
that a boat wouid be put on the river
and early information was to the
effect that the service would be in
olTect last summer. There is now
nothing to retard the early and full
consummation of our plans, if a boat
service is installed and can successful
ly be operated. With the confidence
that the river can sncces. fully naviga
