Recent Valuable Discoveries in the
Black Hills.
From tlio "O .to City" Through the
GulcticH mid Gorjicn ol'tliu Hills
Tlic Hctiiilt of Ten Vonrn of
Wcaltli ol'Dnkntn.
RAriD CITY , Juno 10. [ Correspond
ence ) of TiiiBni5. RtipidClty is located
in tlio foothills , tit n point whore a nar
row g < ip opens into the mountain dis
trict. There in u peculiar fitness about
this position , and it seems to ho u
natural ono from which to view the
country. I do not mean by this that it
is elevated above tlio rest , but rather
that the varieties of scenery and resour
ces are illustrated by what is apparent/
to the observer. The city is on a crook
which bears the same name , and which
is a ( loop mountain stream , whose chan
nel is not only nov'or dry , but even in
the sun-glnro of summer is hardly less
vohiinlnous than in spring. It is Rapid
crook which through many by-gone
ages has worn the gap before which tlio
city stands , which la donoininntod the
"Gate Clty"/6f the hills.
To the west of Uapid City are the
mountains and to the east are the prni-
rles. All the rivers of the hills comedown
down to the plains through canyons and
gulches , 'inil tlio plains form a peculiar
topography. They are tables , or high
lands and bottoms , or lowlands. As the
streams emerge from the mountains
they pas the rugged foothills and then
they How in between the tables. As
tnoy go down to mingle with the Mls-
Bouri their valleys widen and present
wonderful luxuriance. Such is Rapid
valley. Thoothorbtroams have valleys
us fair , but you will not see their rich
ness as you como in from the east , bo-
cuuto tiic railroad pusses through the
most barren country of all. The val
ley aru rich and many line farms nro
there. The tables , too , I ntn informed ,
( ire suhceptible of cultivation , and have
olready become heavy producers. Great
herds of cattle , heavy yields of wheat ,
barley , oats mid vegetables are the
etnplos produced , and all lind a near
mpvkct in the mountains.
Now , turn to the west. Tlicro the
mineral productions attract the cupidity
of capital and the desires of industry.
In treating of fauch u subject as mineral
one should be careful , for there is ate
to enthusiasm on the part of
the miner , and a disposition to bo in
credulous on the part of the listener.
TJio ores of the Black Hills have not
generally favored the elTorts of labor.
They are seemingly ° rieh. but as they
did not give up their riches when
treated by old-timo processes they got
roundly cursed , aud'were in most cases
thrown aside as worthless. Rut in spite
of the many whose expectations wove
not met with success , a , few persistent
and patient men continued to experi
ment. For twelve years these experi
ments have been going on , during
which time tlio Ilomcstnkc mines have
been the only gold producers. Hut the
Honiestako was free milling , and it was
only after the expenditure of great cap
ital that it was made to pay. NoVfrom
the paying Iloinostako mine , which is
situated at Lead Cityabout three miles
from Dead wood , at the northern end of
the IIlllH.there is said by geologists and
experts to bo a bolt of ore running in a
southerly direction for n distance-
lifty miles. I understand that the ores
of this belt are all refractory except in
certain places , where , on the surface , at
least , they are free milling. Bui even
where they are free milling great de
velopment work had to be done to ren
der the gold available in paying quan
tities. Such work has been going on
for ton years now , and the frflo-mill-
ing gold mines are showing up
well , and cautious capital is taking
thorn in hand. Such are the Ore Kino ,
the Undo Sam , the Golden Summittho
Deacon Jones , the Omega , and two or
three others. All these have been
passed upon by competent authorities
and pronounced very valuable. But the
extent of the ore bodies is what renders
them remarkable , rather than the
richness of the ore. The yield per ton ,
it is thought , will hardly bo more than
$5 , but JIH there is plenty of water
power , which is available for milling
purposes , the cost of the yield is less
than ) ! per ton , and the profits consequently
quently largo. It is the refractory ore ,
however , which is most attractive. This
is the ore which I have said was disap
pointing. The process of treating was
wanting , Lately , however , great re
sults have been obtained troni the
Dakota School of Mines , which was hint
year opened at Rapid City , and which
is aterritorial , institution. Tlio faculty
of this school have been * u't
work on these refractory ores ,
and Prof. Carpenter , dean of the
school has succeed BO far as to show that
the leaching process is n complete solu
tion of the problem of treatment. Mr.
R. D. Chirk , of San Francisco , has ap
plied that process to the same ores with
most satisfactory results , and in consequence
quence operations have begun which
bid fair to open up a mineral district
of great magnitude and wonderful rich
ness. These-are found to run from MOte
to 570 per ton , and the cost of their
treatment , by the leaching process ia
lees than $ fl. so that the profits must bo
imnieiibo. This belt of refractory and
free-milling gold ores begins almost
forty miles north west of Rapid City , and
runs to u point about thirty .miles south
west , the nearest point being about
twenty miles west of the city.
There is another subject , however ,
which scorns to me , upon investigation ,
to ho more important in relation to thin
section than gold , whether free-milling
or refractory. Indeed , I "am
convinced that it is national
in the magnitude of its
prospects. I refer to tin. On my first
visit to the hills , some years ago , I
heard that the miners of the central
and southern hills in their search for
gold wore impeded by the constant
occurrence of a mineral which they im
patiently throw aside as "black iron , "
and of no value. About four years ngo
some intelligent gentlemen concluded
to have this black iron analy/.cd in
order to determine just what it was.
The result of their action was that it
was found lo bo cassiterito ( black tin ) ,
the which hears the metalic tin to com
monly used for plating sheet iron. The
world's tin has hitherto been controlled
by capitalists , who own the
only mines from which it is produced
that is. the mines of Cornwall , Malacca ,
near the islands of Sumatra and Aus
tralia. The Cornwall mines are deep ,
having been worked 81X1 years ngo or
more , and the ores only carry a little
over 1 per cent , of tin. The cost of pro
duction in Cornwall is great on account of
the expensive hoisting works employed.
The mines of Malacca and Australia
are placers , and the production from
them is diminishing yearly. Tin is
worth about L'i ( cents per pound , and re
cently , during the "corner" caused by
the French syndicate , was worth 117
cents per pound ; : > . cents per pound is
the normal price. Now , the ores of the
Black Hills are found to run all the
way from U per cent to the ton of stulT
up to SO per cent. Of course , the last is
extraordinary and rare ; but I have
heard from good authority of at least
ono mine where , that is the percentage
obtained. But take the minimum and
consider it the average , Two per cent
to the ton will give forty pounds of ens-
iterite. From this ! K ) per cent of pure
tin can bo saved , or thirty-six pounds.
This is worth 20 cents per pound , or
Sii.ap. The cost of mining , ' milling , re
ducing and refining is shown by Prof.
Carpenter to bo about fcUW per ton of
the stud' , thus giving a profit of $ ( ( .71.
This is far in excess of the profits of
Cornwall mines. Now , the ore bodies
are beyond question exceedingly large ,
and are pronounced to bo so by
Profs. Carpenter , Blake , Riotte ,
Vincent , Dr. F.tmnons and several
others who have made careful examina
tion on the ground , and whose reputa
tions extend to the two continents.
Then again , the ores are found to
bo rich on tiie surface and the expense
of hoisting is therefore saved from the
the cost of production. Now when it is
considered that America annually im
ports bar tin and tin plato , amounting
in value to $30,000,000 , from England ,
and that no tin is produced on the
American continents , the importance
oi the tin llelds of the Black Hills can
boappreciated. _ But there are some
points in relation to the past experi
ments on tlio tin ores winch have boon
unfortunate nijd dilatory in olToet ,
although amusing. One was that the
minors know-nctlling ) of thp methods of
treating , njul finding that tlio cassiter-
ito was assocililpd with mica , which was
much unlike thp granite association of
the same mineral in Cornwall , they
concluded that no.v machinery must bo
devised to work it. The result
was that the now f angled and
expensive contrivance failed and
the supposed mica impediment
was not removed. But Professor Car
penter , of the } School of Mines , in ar
ranging the tin machinery of his lab
oratory of that'institution , took a very
practical view of the situation and con
ceived the idea of trying old-timo
methods. Two months ngo thin old-stylo
machinery was completed , and the very
first test was eminently successful.
Mica , f-o far from being an impediment
to reduction , was floated otr'ns readily
as the other refuse , and every particle
of the cassitorite was saved. This re
moved the last practical objection to
Black Hills tin , and , as there are mil
lions of dollars in bight at the mines , on
the surface of , locations and in many
shafts , cross-cuts , drifts and tunnels ,
the speedy production of metalic tin
may bo renMinuljly expected. Itissnfe to
say that , if the facts thus vouched for
Uy eminent authority whoso reputations
are at stake on this issue , are true , tlio
Black Hills aru destined at no distant
date to figure in the world's aIIairs as a
populous and wealthy section.

OMAHA , June 15. ] To the Editor of
the BKH : As thowarm summer months
approach , tha philanthropic of our city
fathers will begin to think of the ordi
nance , that uveryj dog must bo imix/.lod
pro lone publico. The annual tele
graph ; account > f men and animals
bitten by rabid dogs , appear in the pa-
porn. The police urednilyeullod upon to
shoot any dbg tht ; { has been unfortunate
enough to have an attack of colic , lits or
other harmless affection. And whisky ,
dog hair and mud stones are recom
mended as remedies.
One would'suppose- rabies or hy
drophobia was the commonest of dis
eases ; but the truth is that not ono in
ono thousand physicians has over seen
an undisputed case of the disease.
A superintendent , for fifteen years , of
the "Homo for Lost or Starving Dogs"
in London , never EUW a case of rabies ,
although 1,500 dogs , many of which are
'sick and starving , pass through the in
stitution per month.
Dr. Billroth , the most poled ol sur
geons and pathologist , doubts that he
ever saw a ca&e of hydroprodia ,
although ho has reviewed scores of sup
posed cases.
Another aufiio.rity made post-mortem
examinations on three dogs that were
killed by n skillful veterinary surgeon ,
on account of supposed hydrophobia.
In the brain of onu ho found n tumor
canned by a pistol wound , in the second
a bony tumor at the base of the brain ,
and in the third an inflammatory con
dition of the brain and an ab.scess in the
ear all conditions that cause convul
Prof. Dick , of the Edinburgh veter
inary school , maintained to his death
that hydrophobia or rabies was an im-
ntrinury disease , caused by fright. A
noted French surgeon remarked that
ho hud seen many cases of hydrophobia
or rabies following gunshot wounds ;
by which ho wished to imply that
hydrophobia and tetanus ( look-jnwj ,
were one and the same disease. The
symptoms and course of thp disease are
alike , the difference being in the causes
only one a wound , the other a dog-
A man mimed Stephens , to prove that
hydrophobia was an imaginary disease ,
allowed himself to bo bitten forty times
by "mad" dogs.
A gentleman was bitten on the wrist
by a dog. Severe hydrophobie symp
toms followed. But ho speedily recov
ered when ho was told that the dog
lived and was in full health.
A lady was bitten on the thumb.
Three weeks later the wound opened
and suppurated ; the arm swelled and
the nervbni } manifestations pointed to
"unmintakublo rabies. " The lady , after
suffering severely for a fpw weeks , re
covered , and the doir died six years
later from old ngo ,
A son of Erin was bitten by a pot fox.
Hydrqphobia followed. But lie soon ro-
co'vcred when the impossibility was explained -
plained to him of the disease originat
ing spontaneously in any animal.
A few months ago a Texas gentleman
was bitten by a tame fox , or wolf , and
he became nervous. His physician
diagnosed rabies , and took him to M.
Pasteur in Paris. Tills noted chemist
pronounced the disease an undoubted
cas-o of pscudo-liydrophobln , Thp pa
tient was inoculated a number of times ,
and returned to Texas , where ho in
tends to establish a "Pasteur institute. "
Pscodo-hydrophobin in plain English
means imagined hydrophobia.
From the following'wo may conclude
that hydrophobia is a very rare disease ,
and that many ailments are continually
being mistaken for it. It should bo
known by all :
That of one hundred dog bites , ninety-
nine will not be followed by rabies. .
That rabies is inoro frequent in sum
mer than in winter.
That dogs are afllicted with many dis
eases , the most rare of which is hydro
That if forty days have passed since
being bitten , without symptoms devel
oping , the danger is past.
That the saliva of meat eating pni-
mals alone can produce the disc-ate , and
That of a rabid animal the saliva
alone can produce the disease in others
and only when brought in contact with
an open wound.
That any bite , oven of a healthy
human being , may produce fatal blood
That mad-dogs do not fear water , but
are unable to swallow on account of
muscular spasms ,
That the disease never orgiimtcd
spontaneously. A "mad" dog must have
been bitten by a rabid meat eating ani
mal within forty days.
That bites from animals.not meateat-
ing , can never cause rabies.
That milk from rabid cows cannot
produce rabies nor the meat.
That human beings cannot convey
the malady by any means whatever.
That frothy saliva in may bo
caused by fatigue , bad teeth , or eating
" . "
"dry grass.
That dogs allllctcd with hydrophobia
become paralyzed , but never have
"fits. "
That human beings affected with hy
drophobia do not bark or bite , any more
than do horses , cows or poultry. Such
symptoms in themselves point to an
imiiL'inary disease.
That you stand u greater chance of be
ing struck by lightning than dying of
hydrophobia. Now a few words regard
ing mndstoncs. A madhtone is it very
porous mineral which , when placed on
any moist wound , will adhere until its
pores are filled with moisture. It is
supposed by those who place faith in it ,
that it ohsorbb the poison , and that it
drops oil when the poison has been
"sucked" from the system.
When it is understood how rare
hydrophobia is , and how many diseases
are mistaken for it , it is easily con-
cuivcd why all owners of "real'mad -
fitones' ' can mention innumerable cures ,
many of which were "given up by the
doctors. " W. G. K.
Kxccutlon of a Murderer liy lliu Bile-
Advices have been received by mem
bers of the Chinese colony at San Fran
cisco to the ollect that , unless executi vu
clemency in manifested , Chang Saii-Vin-
Ti/.u , who is well known among his fol
low countrymen hero , will on Friday
next ljo put to death by the horrible
process known as "slicing. " Tlio
method employed in this execution is to
fasten the miserable offender to an up
right slake , securely fasten his hands
and feet , and slowly slice largo portions
tions of flesh from difTorent parts of the
body until death puts an end to the vic
tim's sutTcrings.
At first the pieces sliced are small , a
portion from the arm , another from the
leg , then u linger or perhaps an car.
Then the breast is sliced until the vital
parts are reached. As a method of
torture it is inditurihablc , tlio time
elapsing before death int9rvoncs run
ning from three to six hours. Chang
was a member of the Chinese colony
hero some years ago , but returned to
his native- land in IbbO. Ill-luck seems
to have como upon him , for ho was glad
50 find employment us a day laborer in
the department of the Kokian , in
Shuns ! . He was in great financial
straits and made several applications
for a loan to C'lmng Wangta , a wealthy
second cousin. His iinportuniticB
finally began to border on ,
and Wangla secured his arrest and
communicated witli the authorities with
a view of obtaining ; ! public prosecution. ,1 '
Friends , however , came to the pri. -
oner's assistance , and as a result
of influential intercession lie was r"e- -Y ,
leased from custody. Smarting with a ,1
hciibo of injury , however , ho determined
to have revenge , and the day after bio
release lie purchased four ounces of nT- "
sonic. That night , in disguise , ho
managed to enter his cousin's house and
mixed the poison with a pot of Hour.
The next morning's breakfast was pre-
iiared from this flour , and two houra f '
later six out of the seven members of
the family wore dead. Suspicion at
once fell upon ChangSsu-Yin-Tiy.u , who
nt once decamped. His whereabouts
were discovered after a long search , and
ho was arrested , tried and convicted.
Strenuous olTort.i wore made by his rdl-
ativcH to have the punishment fixed nt
imprisonment for life , but the court
held that the law which makes the mur
der of three or more persons in the same
family punishable by death by the slic
ing process should be rigidly uphold
and enforced , and that there were no
extenuating circumstances in the case.
