WHAT THE MINES ARE DOING
THE LOWER YUKON NEWS
American Mining Camps in That
Section Are Doing Well. :
8eattle, July 4. Tha Post-Intelli-Kencer
has the following special news
from Skagway; ;
Tha first news of the season from the
remote American mining camps of the
lowet Yukon has just coma out to Skag
way. Latest arrivals report a new strike
100 miles back of Circle City, on three
creeks known as Faith, Hope and Char
ity, which empty into the Tanana. A
new strike la also reported on Walker's
fork of the Forty-Mile, which was
once before staked. A stampede has
resulted, and others have rushed in and
re-etaked the country.
Fine pay has been struck on num
ber of claims not heretofore considered
payers. Eureka, struck last summer,
has proved a wonder so far, and has a
psy streak 80 feet wide and four feet
deep. It is expected Eureka will this
year yield tl. 500,000.
Tka Rampart Camp.
Ool. Wingin believes the Rampart
camp is as good as the creek camp ot
Nome, and thinks many of the overflow
at Nome will push up the river to
Rampart and help make it a big pro
ducer, lie has the belief there is gold
in Koyukuk, but feels that the develop
ments are scarcely enough yet to war
rant great faith in the camp. How
ever, from all sources come the report
that manr are rushing into Koyukuk.
. 6. Lenont, who has just arrived
from Forty-Mile and other promising
American camps, reports the clean-up
on Jack Wade this spring has been
demonstrative of a good camp. The
creek is scarcely prospected, yet So. 7

at this year's clean-up. Lenont pre
dicts a great future for the creek, and
estimates the output for next season at
12,000.000. He is going after thawing
machinery for the creek. He has a
nugget from the creek weighing six
ounces and worth $118. Gold of Jack

Good Talucs on Old Claim la a British
Phoenix, B. C July 9. An im
portant ore strike has been made on the
War Eagle claim in this carrp. The
strike occurred iu the west drift of the
100-foot level, about 175 feet from the
abaft, where a raise was being driven.
The ore body dipped little to the
east and was followed 11 feet, when
the workmen went back and continued
work on tha raise. Up to date the
men have gone through 25 feet of clean
chalcopyrite ore and have not reached
the further wall. The width of the
ore body, therefore, has not been deter
mined. Resident Manager Buck has
bad an average test made of the new
strike, and received satisfactory re
turns, the ore running over $20 in cop
per and $1.60 gold.
COMING TO THE FRONT.
Taraaa Creak Mines Acala Attracting;
Republic, Wash., July 9. Toroda
oreek mines are again attracting atten
tion. Seven companies are working
and some of them expect to cut their
ledges within a few days. Some of
the ledges have shown large values on
the surface, and it was this that turned
the attention of mining men in that
direction. Among the minee that bad
fine surface showings and carried ex
ceptionally high values was the Ox
ford. As high as 255 ounces of silver
and $15 in gold per ton were obtained
front the ore near the surface. The
owners decided to run a tunnel and
now have it in 65 feet. A few days
since a stringer 12 inches in width was
cut In the tunnel, which is believed to
be an off-shoot from the ledges. The
ore carries about 200 ouncea uf silver
per ton and -from $10 to $13 in gold.
The tunnel will have to be extended
about 40 feet to cut the ledge. There
is also a parallel ledge that can be cut
by the tunnel by extending it another
100 feet. The ledgea vary from 1 to 9
feet in width.

THE JOHN DAY VALLEY
Many Locations Reported on Dixie
and Strawberry Spur.
Portland, July 9. The Oregonian
has this news from tha minimi center
of the John Day valley in Eastern Ore
gon: Prairie City, in the upper part of the
John Day rulley is attracting consider
able notioe aa a mining center. .
Placer mining has been carried on
in the valley since the early '60s, and
the quarts ledge were known to the
old settlers 95 years ago. Many quarts
locations have been made in the part
two years, and if the 50th pait of them
amount to anything, the Prairie City
country will certainly be a large pro
ducer of gold, copper and cobalt.
The mineralised belt, aside from the
placer deposits which are found in
every creek, comprises Dixie Spur of
the Bine mountains, eight miles north
of Prairie City, and Strawberry Spur,
nine miles south. Dixie Spur is about
25 in lies long, aud skirts the northern
side of the valley. Its highest point
ia Dixie Butte, which has an elevation
of 7,000 feet. Strawberry Spur is 40
miles long. extending from Canyon
creek along the southern t bound
ary of the valley, into Malheur county.
Its blithest point is Strawberry Butte,
which has an elevation of 9,000 feet.
The principal development has been on
Dixie Spur. Here along the forks of
Dixie creek, and in Quartaburg dis
trict, several properties have been
opened. Principal among them are
the Standard, the Lone Star, the Key

Strawberry country baa hardly been

H . E. Stewart, one of the owners of
the Lone Star, says the Dixie Spur
country ia unquestionably a copper reg
ion, although he is mindful of the fact
that gold predominates in the rook.
The copper belt, so far as known, ex
tends, he says, four miles north from
Johnson's arastra along both sides of
the east fork of Dixie creek. There is
cobalt in the rock, as has been demon
strated by the work in the Standard
group, but Mr. Stewart thinks consid
erable depth will be required to get at
the large deposits ol this metal. Cop
per is oxide and carbonate at the sur
face, but is found in the sulphide form
with depth. On the surface the cop
per is streaky anil hnnchy, but as depth
is attained it solidifies and increases in
quantity. This is the experience of sll

Tha Distributive Trade la Seasonably
Bradstrcet's says: . Distributive trade
Is dull, seasonably so In most iu
stances, and pi ices of manufactured
products are generally weak, but ex
ceptions to the former are found where
crop conditions are exceptionally prom
ising and in the clase ot prices where
the readjusting movement has been
overdone on the down side.
The upward rush of wheat prices
culminated at the close of last week
and the reactions aud the irregularities
since, mainly due to heavy realising,
would mainly point to the movement
having been temporarily at least over
doue. ; Advices from the North are of
little more than half a crop of wheat,
but estimates as to the outturn in bush
els vary accordingly as the government
reports of 818.000,000 bushels, or the
commercial estimate of 200,000,000
busbela in yield last year iu the three
states are used as a basis.
Sunar is at the highest price reached
at this time for 10 years past, owing to
the active canning demand and the
strengthened position of raw.
The war in China ia chargeable with
the advance in teas, not only from the
former oonutry, but from Japan, some
interruption in transportation being
apparently looked for if the Asiatic
