they nro perfectly willini * to divide the

SBW YORK , Oct. 0. It has been nunounccd
in print several times during thu past week
tnat Archbishop Corrigan has been sum
moned to Rome by the pope. Mijr. Preston
was asked this evening as to the trutn ot
these reports. Ho replied : "Vou may
use my name , and I ara very
plad to have It used ns your
authority for saying that there is
no truth In the reports. According to ono
report the archbishop lius been summoned to
Home in connection with the old case of Dr.
McGlynn. That Is false. Another report
says that Archbishop Corrjgan has ocen re
quested to come to Homo because ho docs not
want to sit in an American ecclesiastical
tribune said to have been appointed recently
by tbo holy father to try local cases , because
Cardinal Gibbons , of fialtnnoru , and
Archbishop Ryan , of Philadelphia , uro
the other members of the tri
bunal. It was said that Cardinal Glnbons
and Archbishop Ityan entertained liberal
views , while Archbishop Corrigan blindly
adhered to the ruling of the college uf the
propaganda. Therefore it was said the arch
bishop desired to bo relieved of his minority
place in the tribunal and was called to
Homo to answer for his disobedience. Tliii
is interesting , but not true. It is true that
there may bo established in this
country n tribunal to try ecclesiastic
cases. This course may ba necessary
in order that the necessity for ap
pealing to Home may in many cases bo
nvoided. The trllmn.il bus not oeun np-
pointed as yet , nnd it is not known hero , so
far ns I know , who may be th'i members of
it. The archbishop has not remonstrated at
any prospect that ho may bo appointed u
"So far ns Cardinal Gibbnni Is concerned , "
added Mr. Preston , "the archbishop's views
do not differ materially from his , und as to
Archbishop Hyun , ho nnd Archbishop Corri
gan are warm personal friends. What may
be the motive for spreading these false
rumors I cannot ImiiRliio. In this matter I
spealc the mind of tlio urchbishop. "

In 18S4 tin was found in Pcnnlngton county ,

ore , which was smelted In New Yorlt and
produced il.53 per cent of white tin , nmount-
ing to about seventy pounds. Subsequently
further discoveries wore made , notauly on
the Tenderfoot , north of Gustcr City. Drifts
were made on the veins , and it may bo said
that preliminary work has gene , steadily on

In 1SS7 the Harncy Peak Tin company was
orgimi/ed , only nftnr the existence of Blnck
Hills tin had been fully demonstrated by
the boat practical American and English ex
ports. From thnt time nothing la the way
of production has been done. Thoroughly
satisfied with the results attained with the
Imperfect machinery , tue company | ias de
voted itself to the work of acquisition and
development. Thoysomo tlme'aqo shipped
8tOO ! pounds in one lot to England. The
company is now puttipg up reduction works at
Hill City costing ? 150,000. and will erect like
works at Custcr City the coming season ,
which with the Etta mines will bn connected
by n narrow gauge railroad reaching all its
locations. The English syndicate , of whicn
Mr. J. During Gould is the head , hnvo ad
vanced $1,500,000 for the development of the
properties. Tney nrc doing permanent worK
such as constructing tunnels aud erecting
machinery for reducing the ore at ton dif
ferent points , nnd nro actively carrying on
development work at n great , many other lo-
oations , nnd nlready employ over three
hundred cncinoors and skilled workmen.
On the Tenderfoot group , to take an ex
ample , work is advancing rapidly. The dif-
fcrmit veins nre being uncovered , In somu
cases to u considerable depth , and the com
pany are putting up p inminent works at ono
point. Two tunnels have been begun at Tin
Keel , and two on tlio Tenderfoot , where nisi
the machinery for power drills is baing
put in place. It developments go
on as they have begun , plants
for the reduction of tin ere will bo opened
up , and tin will DO produced early the coming
season nt this locality and at , Hill City. The
HSU of the power drills will great oxpcdlto
operations. These drills , like tnoso described
In my letter from thu Newcastle coal mines ,
will effect n vast saving of time , labor and
money ; ono of thorn will drill ten foot per
hour , equal to the labor of leu skilled work
men.Tho principal mines on which operations
are now beginning are the Coates. Cowboy ,
Exolsior and February , near Hill City : the
Etta group on the east side , and the Tin Keof ,
Czar's nnd Dorman's , near Custcr City. A
visit to any of these veins will convince the
most skeptical of the existence of tin alike In
quantity , quality nncl accessibility. The
veins are tynlcal fissure veins ; the ere is
white , making a marked contrast with the
accompanying slates. The walls are smooth
and the ere is separated from the belts by
clear partings. Ono vein which I saw was
from fourteen to fifty feet thick , and it cm

1'he company tiuvo in the course of tlntlr
experiments manufactured a , great deal of
metallic tin , equal to tbo boU foreign tin ,
being absolutely free from Iron , nrsenlo and
tungsten , which nro the bane of the Corn
wall tins. The amount of ere obtained in
their experiments bus boon close to 4 pur
cer.t , while tbo Enchsh Blue Bootes give that
of the Cornwall mines us n fraction loss
than 3 per cunt. Specimens of the ere wore
bluppcd from the Tenderfoot two months
ago to the Pans oxposltion that woijhcd
from three to four tons , and which are esti
mated to contain Irani 15 to 20 per cent of
pure tin. In England tin ere as low us %
per cent is worked nt a profit. The veins Ho
on the slope of the foothills , from 50 to aoo
feet nbovo the bottom of the canyon ,
and they can ba worked for n num
ber of years with very Uttlo machinery
for disposing of water , and ut but slight expense -
penso for fui-J. This peculiar location on the
slopes will also aid In collecting the ores
from the numerous mines ut central milling
points by menus of a system or gravity roads
similar to those which arc seen In the coal
regions of Pennsylvania.
The tin ere Is lirst crushed nnd Is then con
centrated to separate the black tin from the
gorgne ; the resulting mass is then molted
directly Into bar tin. The best material , for
melting is a coal which gives u quick , intonHo
hunt , and prevents the loss nf tin by volatili
zation. The coal in the west sldo of the hills
ut Nowcnstlo is , in Its natural stnto , the best
possible material for roduclug the block tin
to a melted condition. Its coking quality
will render it invaluable for this purpose.
Prof. Hailoy , of the Kapld City , Dak. , school
of mines , when ho wa ? geologist for the tur
ritory of Wyoming , made no fewer I linn
eight luindrod teats of Wyoming coals for
coking purposes , nnd ha Informs mo tlmt the

Clark , "made : i great stroke , in my estima

cordial invitation to hnvo the national con
vention of the W. C. T. U. held in Omaha.
All of us Nebraska ladies have worked hard
to accomplish that end , nnd I am almost
positive that we will succeed. The Coliseum
is plenty largo enough to hold such a con
vention. The state convention lias already
pledged § 1,000 , and I am satislled that the
clliyens of Omaha will willingly donate a
sufllciunt amount to defray thu balance of
the expense. "
