Over Mining Claim.
DEADWOOD, S. D.. Nov. . (Special.)
Ths properties of the Highland Chief and
those of the Opblr syndicate, situated In
Bptuot gulch, have been consolidated, and
are now being worked by the Black Hills
and Denver Gold Mining company. The
holdings of the new company embrace some
of the best paying properties In the dis
trict, and cover several hundred acres.
On most of the claims owned by the com
pany ore has been found on the upper con
tact, and from many of them ore has been
milled, which gave returns ranging from
13 to $10 per ton, although In particular
instances these values havo been greatly
exceeded. The company Is now milling ore
In the Highland Chief mill In Spruce gulch,
by an Improvement oi the wet-crushing
cyanide process. Invented by Captain Ran
idall of this city, and Is meeting with
very good results. It is said that the pro
cess has solved the difficulty of handling
ores from which a high percentage of slimes
occur, after crushing and pulverizing. . At
any rate the mill Is a success under Its
present management and la saving a high
percentage of all the valuea contained
1b the ore. It Is also said that the new
organization purposes to begin development
work on a large scale In the district, and
Will open up the ore bodies which are known
to exist In the lower contact there.
The contract for the erection of the
cyanide plant for the Jupiter Mining com
pany, which Is to be erected on .Blacktall
gulch, three miles above this city, has
foeen awarded, and work will begin on it
this coming week. The plant Is to have
a daily capacity of 150 tons, which amount
can be increased at any time. The order
for the machinery has already been placed
with Colorado people and will be ready
by the time the mill buildings is prepared
to receive It. The plant will be wet-crushing,
and strictly up to date. The com
pany has a great deal of ore blocked out
in Its mines ready to mill, but will con
tinue development work and open up Its
ground so that there will never be any
danger of the oro supply running short.
The ore is rich for a cyaniding proposition,
carrying gold values which range from $15
to $25 a ton.
Elkhorn Bay Right-of-way.
The Elkhorn Railroad company has re
cently been buying the right-of-way over
mining ground In Blacktall gulch, and this
Is taken as an indication that it will ex
tend its system up that gulch and possibly
out to Garden City. Tho present develop
ment of the mining interests In that dis
trict would warrant such a move on the
part of the railroad company and would
also be a great boon to people owning min
ing ground In the course of the proposed
The Lancaster Mining company has be
gun work on the Alfarata lode In Black
tall, and will sink a shaft to the quartzlte,
which at this point on the gulch can be
reached In a depth of about 100 feet. Sev
eral years ago there was a shaft on quartz
lte on this mine and it ts aald that a
good body of siliceous ore was found,
carrying high values, but then the cyanide
process had not been perfected to such an
extent as It Is at the present day, so but
little attention was paid to the ore de
posit. The shaft was abandoned and in the
years that have passed since then the
timbering in it has rotted away, and the
workings filled up to such an extent that
It is cheaper to sink a new shaft than to
clean out the old workings, and this will
be done. The Alfarata is one of the first
claims to be patented In the Black Hills
and one of the first from which paying
ore was milled, the ore being ,taken from
the surface workings and treated by crush
ing in a stamp mill and amalgamation.
The Imperial company is getting out ore
right along, from its ground, and other
companies and Individuals at work make
Blacktall one of the busiest districts at
the present time In the Black Hills, and If
It does not have a railroad before another
year It will not be because there is not
business enough to warrant the construc
tion of a line through It.
Orders New Mill.
HILL CITY, S. D., Not. 9. (Special.)
The Lakota Mining company, which has
been organized for the purpose of working
the Grizzly Bear mine, five miles east of
this camp, has ordered a new ten-stamp
mill to take the place of the old one, which
has become out of date, its machinery
worn out and antiquated, and expects to
havo the new plant ready to run by spring.
t,he workings of the mine have been cleared
out, the caved in material, the accumula
tion of yeara of Idleness, removed and tho
vein exposed for a sufficient distance to as
sure ore enough to keep a ten-stamp plant
running almost a lifetime. The Grizzly
Bear was at one time a prolific producer,
notwithstanding the fact that It was worked
In rather a primitive manner, and with no
regard whatever for economy. Robert
Florrman, who died a few years ago In
Alaska, was Its owner during the days of
Its productiveness, and to him it was a
source of revenue for seven or eight yeara
but as be did not toward the last give it
his attention the mine waa allowed to run
down, and when it ceased to be profitable
to him he ceased work upon It.
Elnieadorf to Start A sain.
The Elmendorf Mining company will
shortly resume work on Its ground on
Spring creek. Francis H. Clarke, one of
th directors, arrived here, from Minneap
olis last week and proceeded to settle all
the acconnts owed by the company, dlstrib
utlng several thousands of dollars. The
company Is said to have ample funds In Its
treasury now and will resume operations on
n extensive scale when It starts up. The
property ts in a good location and has sev
oral good ore bodies exposed on It, and It
Is believed with good management It can
be made to pay.
CUSTER CITY. 8. D., Nov. . (Special.)
A carload of ore was shipped from the
LeRoy mine lent week to Denver for treat
ment. The ore Is said to be very rich anj
It is expected that the returna from the
shipment will amount to several thousand
dollars. The shipment consists of ore which
has been sorted and aacked from the regu
lar vein matter that has been encountered
In the courae of wcrk on the mine. The
working shaft, which was started on the
vrooerty somo time ago, has now reached
a depth of eighty feet and the ore which ts
being sent east has come from this working
The vela on the LeRoy is about eighteen
feet In width, with a very rich streak car
rying tree gold running through It.

The town of White Lake seems to be In
fested by a genuine "firebug." and If bis

He attempted to burs the store of H. Hcf-
toetster. and the fact that the attempt was
unsuccessful waa due to the fire, by
lucky chance, being discovered a few mo

fear that other attempts to burn the tow

to extinguish them.
rhnrrh Property In osth Dakota
Valued at Over a Qnarler
HURON, S. D., Nov. 9. (Special.) Rev.
T. M. Shanafelt, D. D., of this city, secre
tary of the executive committee of the
Baptist state convention and superintendent
of Baptist missions In South Dakota, Is
ending out his annual report, in which he
gives an Interesting bit of history concern
ing the Baptist denomination and the work
It is doing.
The first Baptist church organized In Da
kota territory was at Yankton, In May, 1864.
Indian hostilities scattered the few people
In tho two or three little settlements along
the Missouri river, and the first organiza
tion passed out of existence. A later or
ganization was effected at Yankton, Febru
ary 3, 1867. The church at Vermilion was
organized a year later, February 18, 1868.
The church at Yankton having become ex
tinct, the one at Vermilion Is the oldest of
existing organizations, and may properly
be regarded as "the mother of us all."
On the 6th of June, 1872, two Important
events occurred at Vermilion. One of
these was the dedication of the first Bap
tist church building in Dakota territory,
In whose tower was hung the first Pro
testant church bell ever brought Into the
territory. The other was the organization
of the South Dakota Baptist association,
consisting of all the pastors, and delegates
from all the Baptist churches, in the terri
tory of Dakota, only nine in number. The
seed was planted here which ripened a
decade later in Sioux Falls college.
The present total valuation of church
property In the state Is $237,770. There has
been contributed for benevolence $10,731.63;
local Improvements, $12,035.34. and for cur
rent expenses, $37,377.24. Total for ex
penses, $49,442.58. Total for benevolence
and expenses, $60,244.41.
In all these Items, there is a decided gain
over last year.
Relief Corp Prospering-.
HURON, S. D., Nov. 9. (Special.) Kll
patrlck Relief corps No. 2 was Inspected
Friday afternoon by Mrs. Mary Farr of
Pierre, department Inspector. She reports
the corps in splendid condition and doing
good work. The same is true of all crops
visited In the state. Much is being accom
plished along patriotic lines by the system
now In use In the public schools of South
Dakota for patriotic instruction. Corps are
growing in numbers and influence. At the
conclusion of the business session refresh
ments were served and a social time pre
vailed. Ilia; Shipment of Wheat.
SIOUX FALLS, S. D., Nov. 9. (Special.)
In one day recently an aggregate of sixty-
five carloads of wheat were shipped from
Alexandria to the Minneapolis and Milwau
kee markets. As each car held about 1,000
bushels, the total amount shipped was
about 65,000 bushels.

NEW YORK, Nov. 9. (Special.) Henry
Clews In his weekly Wall street letter
The elections had little effect upon the
stock market. Fortunately there were no
unsettling developments, although the de
cline In republican majorities was Inter
preted In some quarters as an expression
of dlesatisiactlon at that party's tardiness
in legislation affecting the tour leading
questions ot the day reciprocity, currency,
trusts and the tarnT. Congress will open
In about three weeks, and usually this is a
period of uncertainty pending some Idea of
the legislative program. The coming ses
sion, however, will be a short one, expiring
March 4, and no very important legislation
need be expected, especially in view ot the
approach of a presidential election, when
all such questions will be reserved for
campaign oratory, in the political out
look, therefore, tncre is nothing disturbing
tor the immediate future.
While anxiety on this score has been re
moved there is still a very pronounced
spirit of caution In financial circles. This
arises trom the slow but sure spread of the
Idea that the crest of the boom has been
reached and that we are now undergoing a
partial financial reaction an outcome per
sistently pointed out in these advices for
months past. With so many strong Inter
ests committed to plans which compelled
allegiance to the long side of the market
admission of such opinions, of course,
comes slowly: but with the steady curtail
ment of credit facilities, forced by their
practical exhaustion, the facts cannot
longer be concealed.
More Liquidation Comlnf.
Very considerable liquidation has already
taken place, and more must follow. For
tunately, the situation la under strong con
trol, the public being practically out of
stocks, and contraction tails chiefly upon
those best able to bear It Instead of upon
a multitude of small holders whose de
moralization would only Invite more serious
difficulties. Many of the Josses will be (n
paper and will tall upon big holders whs
tailed In more than partially disposing of
their Original holdings In newly created
corporations. We etui have a vast mass
of undigested newly made railroad and In
dustrial securities some held privately,
some held by strong syndicates controlling
trust companies and banking institutions
and it is this weight upon the marKet that
prevented a further rise. At lower prices
a new set of buyers might be found, but
prosperity has been fully If not over dis
counted, and Wall street alwuys anttcipa.es
events and movements it never follows.
.As repeatedly pointed out In these advices
the principal causes of reaction are Inor
dinately high prices, advancing interest
rates, declining profits in business, an un
favorable turn in our foreign trade balance,
signs of reaction in the Iron trade, the ag
gressive attitude of labor and an over
supply of new securities which cannot be
assimilated at the present level. Walle the
late boom has been complicated in many
respects by extraordinary new develop
ments, notably in the Industrial world. It
has also developed striking points of simi
larity with preceding boom periods.
Boom In Heal Estate.
Modern history has always given the Iron
trade the credit of being the truest baro
meter of business conditions, and today It
Is still the best index of both the present
and the future. Again, all great eras of
prosperity have been capped by phenomenal
activity In real estate, which, usuully being
the safest and least profitable of invest
ments, la generally the last to rise. Today
the country, from the Atlantic to the Pa
cific, is undergoing one of the most extra
ordinary real estate booms that have ever
been witnessed, differing from its predeces
sors only in the fact that thus far it has
been more substantial than they. Still, it
is evident tha't building Is about reaching a
point beyond the requirements of even our
marvelous growth. It Is not necessary to
multiply evidences of this sort to show that
the top has been reached, for the present at
least, and that the path of safety now lies
in retrenchment.
Fortunately, there is no cause for anxiety.
The necessity for conservatism Is now so
fully appreciated and acted upon that the
danger of a crisis Is past. Qpod crops assure
another season of business activity and
this has unquestionably saved us from un
pleasant consequences.
Monetary Condition Improving;.
The monetary situation is steadily Im
proving and this is cause for reassur
ance. Oold exports have not commenced,
and a larger outgo of agricultural products
is about due and should deter an efflux of
the precious metal for a period, although
our large borrowings abroad, which at the
moment appear to be increasing, are likely
to force gold shipments when settlement
day arrives. Large sums of money are still
locked up In syndicate operations, and this,
coupled with the financing of Important
deals and the activity of general business,
is likely to keep funds In limited supply nt
firm rates, at least until currency returns
from the Interior after crop requirements
are over. For the present the market seems
imeiy to orirt downward. The snort side of
the market appears to be the most popular
Just now, but the bears lack leadership
and excessive selling might easily produce
sharp reactions since stocks are closely
concentrated In strong hands. Good Blocks
offer very fair trading opportunities,
though no real bull movement can be ex
pected until monetary condition Improve
or a fresh start can be made at a lower
Forelgtn Financial.
LONDON, Nov. 9. Ths general outlook on
the Stock exchange last week was en
couraging, but practically no business was
done. The American elections, the im
proved situation In Wall street and the ex
cellent traffic reports of home railroads
were all quoted by the optimists as presag
ing a return of the market's activity, but
the net result was merely some small In
vestment buying of the best class of se
curities. The fact Is the immense amount
of stock of every sort which la carried on
borrowed money hangs over the market
and Is only awaiting a slight Improvement
to take profits and get clear. London wants
New York to start the upward movement.
Until this Is done there will be little pros

until the actual figures of the Deutsche
bank were published on Friday, when a
sharp reaction ensued. Yesterday almost
all the bank stocks closed lower than they
did the previous week. Professional specu
lators were more active last week and
caused greater fluctuations In quotations
than is usual. The attempts to entice out
siders to participate in transactions was a
failure. The market gave very little at

Quotation of Saturday.
CHICAGO, Nov. 8. Wheat was active to
day and stronger, December closing Ho
higher. December corn closed 4c lower,
with oats a shade higher. January provi
sions closed from 6c to 74c lower.
Wheat ruled strong the greater part of
the day, after a weak opening, which was
due principally to the liberal receipts In the
northwest. Better weather than expected
was also a weakening factor early In the
day. A feature to trading was the buying
of over l,tio0,0iio bushels supposed to be for
the account of a leading bull. Around 74c
for May there was quite general profit-taking
by longs. A good export demand and
prospects of p. decrease in movement were
bull factors. The close was strong. De
cember opened a shade higher to 48 4e
lower at 714ft71c and after holding about
steady the first hour there was an advance
to 72c and the close was 4c higher at 714c
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 418.000 bushels. Primary receipts were
1.614.000 bushels, compared with 1,084,000
bushels a year ago. Minneapolis and Du
luth reported receipts of 1.061 cars, which,
with local receipts of 175 cars 9 of contract
grade made total receipts for the three
points or 1.176 cars, against 1,002 cars last
week and 902 cars a year ago.
Corn was dull and prices had a downward
tendency, due to a lack of any material
support to the market. Firmness in wheat
and a good cash demand were strengthen
ing factors. Cables were firm and the
movement moderate. The latter part of the
session considerable weakness developed on
commission house selling and the close was
barely steady. December closed ic lower
at 604c, after ranging between 504c and
614c. Local receipts were 131 cars, with 16
of contract grade.
mere was a fair trade in oats and prices
were firm in sympathy with wheat and on
predictions of more unfavorable weather.
Commission houses were good buyers, but
turned sellers later In the day. resulting
In a sllKht break toward the close, which
was about unchanged from yesterday's final
ngures. December closed a snade nigner at
304c, ranging between 30ffiao4c and 3oc.
Local receipts were 208 cars.
Provisions were easier, the heavy run of
hogs expected next week being responsible
for the lower figures. Trade was only mod
erate and the close was at a slight decline.
January pork closed 5c lower at $15.32'A.
January lard waa "40 lower at $9.90, while
ribs were doc lower at 88.124.
Estimated receipts for Monday: Wheat.
165 cars; corn, 165 cars; oats. 235 cars: hoes.

CATTLE There were several fresh cars
of cattle in the yards this morning, but
most of them were either consigned direct
to local packers or else simply stopped off
here for feed and water. What few cattle
did change hands brought right around
steady prices with yeBterday.
The supply of cattle for the week has
been considerably smaller than a week ago,
but still a good increase is noted over the
corresponding week of last year, as will
be seen from the table above. The quality
ol the cattle this week, though, has not
been up to the average, as it seems that
ranchmen are sending In the tall-ends of
their herds, having already shipped the
better grades. ' '
There has been an Increase In tho number
of cornfed cattle received, but the quality
has shown very little improvement. Most
of them were short-fed and warmed-up
stuff, though a few cars arrived that had
been fed a reasonable length of time. Pack
ers were very bearish all the week owing to
the demoralized condition of the Chicago
market and bought their supplies a little
lower. During the last two weeks prices
have probably gone off fully 6oc, though
the market 's so uneven that it is difficult
to tell Just what the market Is. There have
been no finished cattle here in over a
month, so that what prices that class of
cattle would bring is purely problematic.
This much Is certain, however, it takes
a pretty decent bunch of cattle to bring
16.00 or better.
The cow market has been In good shape
all the week and tha demand seemed to be
equal to the supply, each day's offerings be
ing disposed of In good season. A few
warmed-up cows and heifers are beginning
to arrive, but packers are rather Indiffer
ent buyers ana the prices paid are very
uneven. As long as they can get good grass
cows the short-fed stuff will probably not
sell to good advantage. As compared with
the close of last week the market may
safely be quoted strong to loc or 15c higher,
so far as tho better grades are concerned,
and canners are fully steady.
The bull market has held Junt about
steady all tho week and so also have veal
calves and stags.
There has been a good demand the last
several days for the better grades of Block
ers and feeder. As compared with the
close of last week those showing quality
are. If anything, a little stronger and some
sales have looked quite a little higher.
There now seems to be quite an inquiry for
the medium weight and light cattle to
rough through the winter. The demand,
however, la tor the cattle of good quality,
no matter of what weight, so that the
common stun Is probably a little lower
even than it was a week ago.
There has been a good demand for west
ern beef steers all the week, and, although
the quality has been very inferior, the
market has held firm and active all the
week. Good range cows are strong to 10c or
15c higher, with comomn stuff about steady.
Range feeders are strong and active If
of desirable quality and weak where the
quality is common. Representative sales:

HOOS The hog market took a drop at
all points this morning, the decline here
amounting to 1'lUic. The market opened
fairly active and about loc lower, but to
ward the clofse the feeling grew weaker
and the close waa slow Hiid 15c lower. The
bulk ot the sales went from V 424 to 86.47 4.
On the close the heavy packing grades sold
mostly around 86 .40. A few choice loads
sold abuv 86.474. Several trains were
again late In arriving, so that the morning
was well advanced before the market came
to a close.
For the week the supply has been fairly
liberal, though a slight decrease Is noted
as compared with last week. There Is not
much change, however, as compared svlth
the same week of last year. The general
tendency of prices was upward until Fri
day, when there waa a slump, followed by
another today, which carried the market to
the low point of the, week and also to the
loweat point reached In many month.

SHEEP There were a few cars ot sheep
and lambs here today, and they sold read
ily at Just about steady prices with yes
terday. There were not enough on ssle,
though, to tell much about the market.
For the week the supply has been liberal,
but a little short of the receipts for last
week. As compared with the same week of
last year, however, the supply Is nearly
double. The table above will show tho
exact figures.
The demand for fat stuff has been In
fairly good shape all the week, and each
day's offerings have been well cared for.
The downward tendency of prices at other
points, however, caused some weakness
here, end as compared with the close of
last week the market ts fully 10 15c lower,
and In extreme Cases some sales looked
a little worse than that.
The leeder market has been in very satis
factory condition, as the demand has been
fully equal to the supply In spite of the
fact that the bulk of the offerings were
not fat enough for killers. There wera
several large buyers on the market all the
time, besides many smaller operators, so
that prices were forced up fully 10ffl5c, and
some cases as much as 2fu. The week
closes with practically nothing at all de
sirable in first nanus.
