There Is a general feeling ol regret throughout base ball circles In this city thnt the local management iu'.cud to soil what ever member of the homo team they can got thair price for. So far Crooks is the only man who hns been absolutely disposed of , unless the rumored sale of Coonoy yester day turns out to bo true. However , the Omnhn management nro not duaerving of tiny censure In this matter. They put up their good hard cash to sustain the club here , and what have they received in turnl His unbecoming in those who have sut back to talk about what they would do under the cir cumstances , when the munairement raforrod to were tbo only ones to do tho'r ' share to ward giving the city Jlrst clusi ball. Now they nro perfectly willini * to divide the responsibility and j.rollts with uny other capltntists or enthusiasts who see proper to put up a Uttlo of the stuff. Had the club received the patronage its line work deserved there Is no doubt but what the Whlto Sox combination would have boon kept Intact. However , there is no occasion for any npprohcnsion that wo will have no team next season. That Is a settled fact , and while It may not como up to the standard of the nRKi-CKatlon , gl disbanded , it will bo BtroiiR cnouuh to ( jlvo interesting battle to nny of the clubs in next year's aroim. The nucleus for n line team will bo loft over at nil -events , and the management nre not niadoof Vho mntorhl to sit.ldly by and not secure enough additional talent to represent tic | , , Gate city In a creditable manner upon ho diamond.

It IB Denied Tlint Ho Has Upon Sum- nioncil to Hinnn Ily ttm I'ope. 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 member. "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.

Northwest of the peak Is Hill City , south west of U Is Caster City , whllo tittn , where ntono tin hM been practically worltod , llos to the east of It. Custcr City Is situated slxty- flvo mlles south of Uoadwood , forty-Ilvo Bontliwost of Rapid City nna some forty mlles southeast of Newcastle. French crook runs through Castor southeasterly nnd empties Into the South Cheyenne river. Early m 1875 , the miners who had boon driven out by the military came Ijnek In squads nnd soon 1,500 log houses , rainy of which still remain , were erected nnd the population of the plnco rapidly grow until 0,000 people hau gathered there. The dls- rovory of gold in Dcndwood gulch depopu lated Custcr more quickly than it had been occupied. This Is the most beautifully situ ated plnco In the Ulaok Hills. It liosD-100 , feet , over ouo mile , nbovo the sen on n nat ural "open" ainung the mountains which , covered with pines , surround it on every hand ; and In every direction llo Innurnor- nblo parks lending into one another for many miles , in which already are thriving farmers with an abundance of nil kinds of crops ex cept corn. All these heights nro immensely rich in mineral wealth gold , silver , copper , iron , mica , etc. while tin , which bad been sought for in vain on our continent , is found In every direction , on hill-top and at the foot of ravines , encased everywhere with cllt- tcrlng mica In forms of surpassing beauty. In 18S4 tin was found in Pcnnlngton county , nnd thj > Etta mlno wns stocked In Now Voric nnd nuout ? 100OOJ were expended on n stump mill and operators. A year Inter Mr. 11. P. Moore , of St. Louis , found tin In Cos ter county , and ho obtained 1.030 pounds of 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 since tnat time , nt last reaching the whole district fifteen miles from Custor north to Hill City. The lodes are generally massive nnd well dolincd through their whnlo length. with largo nnd in many caseo very rich out crops. The Tenderfoot district is ono of phenomenal richness on the ton or twelve veins which have been examined , and thcro arc about Hill City numerous locations of rare promise on which u great deal of work has oeen done.lncludingexpensiveiiiiichiiiory ana buildings that are now under construc tion. 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. 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 bo traced two miles , in sonio places extend ing fifteen foot nbovo the mirroundiugBurfnca 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 coal trom Newcastle gives the best doko ho lias anywhere found sllver-whltd in cdlor , hard ana capablu of sustaining any necessary weight in the furnace nnd carrying a high percentage of llxod curbon , and therefore of u high reducing power , ono uart of Novv- castle CGIEO being oapu bio' of " reducing W 3-10 parts of lend , whllo from 23 to 23 is the rango-of tho. best reducing cokos.
