HILLS MINING CITY LOOKINaPOS
FUTURE GREATNESS IN NEW
INDUSTRY NEARBY
Lead, April 8.—The Homestake^
Mining company, the mainstay W
th6 northern Black Hills, has just
commenced another mammoth undor- ,3
'taking that will involve the expen^i
lture of over $1,000,H0 and will
quire at least ft year and a half unf,
der prosperous circumstances to com-'-j
plete.
The new undertaking is the build-Al
ing of an electric power plant on
Spearfish creek, at a point! about
seven miles from here, This plant 4
will have a maximum capacity ot^
7,000 horse-power, which is to be ut
llized in the big mills of the company
In this city, in the mines and at any
other point where It may be needed.
The company estimates that it will
require the services of 200 men in
the carrying out of this project.
ThiB is the second largest under
taking that the company has had
from a single-piece standpoint, and
Its details are just made public* One
of the principal parts will be the
building of an intake some five miles
below the plant, .connected by a con
duit, the result being to leave the
creek bed dry for tliat distance. For
several,months past the legal depart
men of the company has been en
gaged in securing rights while' men
have been stationed all winter on
the creek, obtaining data as to the
flow and movement of the strain,
The conduit will' consist of eight
tunnels, varying from 2,000 to 4,000
feet in length. In their construc-1
tion five-horsepower electric drills
will-' be used, the drills to be oper
ated in two tunnels jointly, working
