The main abaft in now down about eighty-nix feet, from which a cross-cut ban Urn driven a distance of nlsmt forty feet and from thin cross-cut at a point about twenty-fivo feet north of the shaft adrift ban been Btartcd, lieing carried east and west, the east end having .pro gress about thirty feet and the went end nlsnit fifty. Tho cast part of the drift is Ining carried along the vein and in for exploratory purposes, while the west end is in the vein and will connect "A," the main shaft, with "G" shaft. "A" shaft is near the foot wall, while "G" hhaft is about in the center of the vein, no that tho drift will not nin directly east ami west, but will awing south. When this connetion is made it will ren der tho mine in excellent condition for stoping. There is Home talk of lowering "A" shaft down pome twenty-live or thirty feet and Mojkj from there, and take the ore from the present workings later on. The ore in what is familiarly known as the "Went pit" is continually lettering. The pit has leen converted into a well-timliered working thaft. The engine house is nearly completed and with a force of thirty-five men at work the projMTty piemen ts a very lively ap pearance. Not much ore will le raised until the spur track is com)leted, which, President Kimball nays, will not lie long. Ore could now lie raised at the rate of fifty tons per day. One lirm reports sales of No. 1 specu lar and magnetic Bessemer aggregating 10,000 terns. There 1ms I een no falling off in prices und there seems little pros eet of weakening features in the market which all dealers charaterize as strong if not particularly active. Vessel rates have gone up a notch and at present prices paid for bringing down ore, the lake transportation companies can probably make more money than in handling any other kind of freight. Tor this reason it seems t hat t he fears, hit hert o cntei ta ined by mine owners of a lack' of carrying capacity, may Ix? abandoned. Ore is coming down to Lake l'rie ports at a rapid rate, about (10,000 tons having lecn received at Cleveland during the past six days. We are unable to learn of any Hales 1k?1ow the schedule of quot ations given Ixlow which have prevailed for three or four months. The strike on the N. Y., P. fc 0. ore docks is still inter fering with the shipment to furnaces, al though nearly 10,000 tons have gone down this week. There an indications of a .SU.iio vessel rate to Ashland, 91. NO from Marquette and $l.r0 from Kfccannba. These advances will inteifereslightly with the profits of the mine owners, but will not affect the furnnccmen, most of whom have lsmght from three-fourths toscven eighths of idl the ore they will require this season.

It is pretty certain that P. C. Lock wood has pit ore at his explorations on section thirty-three, UWA'2. The test pitting mentioned last week was contin ued west up the hill. The 'pit in which the ore has lxrn encountered in now down about thirty feet. The usual rapping wan penetrated when the pit Isittomed in graphite, which had a thickness of about live feet, immediately under this the ore was 'found. The onisstill rather lean but is Uttering and will no doubt clean up and liecome first class in a few more feet. Mr. Lockwood is of the opin ion that he has encountered the contin uation of the Kimball vein, though his work is half a mile from that mine. The ore is soft and rich looking. The Caledonia mine has lxrn or is noon to In? closed down temporarily, minor says. It is further heard that l'.enjamin, Moore fc Co., are to withdraw. One thing is quite sure, the mine is not Ix ing cloned for want of ore, as there is known to lx a line lsdy of ilesscincr ore at that point, and it may be iid with truth that the projierty has hardly as yet Urn explored, it U ing very large. IVvelojv ment will eventually prove up a large mine there. The proierty i certainly a very promising one and no one should think its cloHing down means its U ing abandoned, for such is decidedly not the cne. ('apt. .lames Tobin Informed the writer a few .lays ago, that when the extension of tho North-Westem railway to Waters meet incompleted, ho that he can make quick trips Utween the Gogebic and Menominee ranges, he intends to do con- i niderable exploratory work in this m j tion. Capt. Tobin stated that there is j more money to U made to-day in Flor- ence county and in Crystal Falls district , than in either the Gog. bic or the Vermil-1 ion country, and that a Florence county or Crystal Falls property can U? placed i a great ileal easier than a Gogebic , property. Mining News. j New developments of astartlingnature J have Urn made at the Cullxrtsou mine. ' A vein of ore has Urn cut which prom-; ises great things and gives heft to the lx-' lief that a large Unly of the material is at hand. A sample of the ore was brought to this office by Mr. Welch, the owner of the projierty, and it has a splen- did apix arance; is a soft, brown ore and very dense. It apix arance is that of a nam ore but it can lx easily cut with a knife blade. The new find has created! a considerable stir and will 1x5 watched with great interest by those n i csted in this ilistrict. Dr. N. 1'. 1 1 ulst recently made an exam- j the property which presenter! a remark ination of the mangaruvho deposit nenr ; ablely fine apxarance. The company is the Urule river in Florence cnmty, and j quite sure it will strike it rich here, later it is reported that the find hasUrn J Thelnnes mine, on the Urule river near sold to Cleveland parties for $'J0,000 on j nunp ,umHtf hMows up good and has a condition that :i,000 tons of ore can U ; vt.in of t.jf.an oro in Hi,t, lMtnic hhown up, and if all reports .Mmcerning ' t ioI1M i .en m.jeVirl from narties the find are true, that will U? the least j part of the work, as it out-crops and has j ixrn iraeMi a eoiiMueranie oisiance. Wm. A. Curry and Kichard Peters, of Florence and Jos. Riley, of Ft. Howard, are the lortunate UtK-overers oltJiemme. j A boiler is U-ing placnl in position at the Kdnapniperty, section twenty-seven, Ul-.TJ, when exploratory work will U' caiTieI on more satisfactorily, watr having hindenrl rapid dev loping con siderably heretofore. Notwithstamling the inconvenience by reasorf of water the property is very promising indeed and the mort? sanguine one asnert tluit it is nearly if not quite a mine at present. Developing is, it is apparent, only nires sary to prove that a good mine really exists there. Some very fine sptrimens of ore were shown the editor one day this wtrk, which were taken from S. D. Hollixtcr's work in township forty-fix, range thiity three. The specimens in question, were taken from the Uittom of , a sixty-foot shaft and are of a very fine grade of ore. Work.has Urn carried on here for a long time and it is hojnil that the on" has Urn found at last. In fact it has Ucu found, but in what quantity is yet un known. The oro it; a brown hematite, apparently. The Lockwood, Jr., exploration on the wet. half of hcctiou twenty-nine, l.'J-.J2, Iwis as yet shown up nothing 'of import ance. What was supposed to U the ledge at a depth of twenty-two feet, proved to U hard-pan, which has Urn Icnct rated twenty-five feet, with no signs of the ledge. Sinking will U? continued, as those interested have much faith in the prorerty. S. D. llollinter's ex)lorations on the south-cast (inarter of the south-wit! (piarterand the south-west quarter of the south-cast quarter of section twenty seven, l.'UIJL', are looking all that really could U exjKrted, but no mine has Urn found there as yet. The work will U continued there for some time and it is not impossible for a good property to U develojKvl. This journal made a slight mistake in referring to J). C. Lockwood's explora tions tin Motion thirty-thnr. It was mentioned as the "Lockwood, Jr.," which is not the ease, the nection twenty nine exploration is the "Lockwood, Jr.," and that on thirty-three is simply the "Lockwood." J. M. Thorn writes from Metropolitan and says that man' new options are U ing worked in that part of Iron county and that then is a good prosjMct that Felch will do considerable towards swell ing the lift of Iron county's mines. Explorations are soon to U inaugur ated on the south-east quarter of the north-east quarter of section twenty three, i: 'A2. Henry C. CnmpUll, of the Florence Mining News and Milwaukee parties, will do'the work. Ore has lxrn found at the new workings of theQuincy mine. Fits were lowered w est of the old workings and one of them bottomed in ore not unlike that taken from the Youngstown mine, which is near at hand. The new management of the Waneta (lUaney) mine has alxiut decide 1 to put a diamond drill on the prox rty and at once ascertain thcdiinensions of the nnne. II. 11. Swain still superintends the woik. It is rumored that theSluldeiuVShafcr mine is soon to le temporarily closed down. A sale of the proH i ty is te nding. This mine is as good as any in this dis trict. 4S. D. lfollister has a good showing for the finding of iron on the west half of the north-west quarter of section thirty-five, and will hasten developing. A shaft is now U ing lowered on tho east side of the Dunn mine to nwcr tain the depth of the capping at that point. The stock pile foundations a ndisx-kcta at tl.s Ih:::a rr.i::? are nearly i-omptrd.
