The Kicat mines of Hatllo mountain and
tlnxcn lilll vrcro among the first Important
til seen cries and contain some ot the richest
mines ot tlie district. On Haven lilll the
tnt.ice of note occupy the southern elope.
ThrouKh the two or three years of discovery
end development In this section lltllo atten
tion him been paid to the possibilities at the
oi th sideof Haven hill. True , all the ground
lm been located and some patcutB obtained.
AnutiB Iho patents were the throe claims
ot the Enterprise Mining company ol Colorado
rado Springs. This property Is situated
nbout two mllPS southeast ot Cripple Creole
nnd the claims adjoin each other , stretching
JiorUont.illy along the base ol the mountain ,
beginning at the gulch ,
l.efcs than n month ago a lad ot 1C year * ,
the son of a Swede tcamMcr , says the Denver
nrimtis-Star. tthlle passing o\er the ground of
the middle claim picked up a plcco of float
Which struck hlu fancy as somuthlng good. Ho

lorracd , consIsiltiK of the Swede teamster and
Ills partner , the boy , Charlie neuter. W. H.
fiwceiiey and Hun T. llrooks. A two years'
leasu on the property was secured , each of
the parlies named bavins a sixth Interest In
the results of development. Operations began
n llttlo over two weeks ago , and the llrst
Ony proved to the lessees that they had
Struck an unoimous fortune. Prom the
very surfucc , " as far as the de
velopment has proceeded , the rock
la a fi.icturod , clouded tjuarti , every
bcparato piece' being densely Impregnated
with gol.l , much of It visible to the naked
eye. Acooidlng lo account * given of first
transactions $2,000 was the sum Involved
In securing the property , and this sum
the priupeet hole returned to the lessees
the second il.iy of uork. With the progress
ot deve ! > prnenl thseln of three feet has
widened , iiul continues to grow richer. It
is too ( .jrly lo determine a permanent
average. Thus far six car loads have been
chipped , and the last car averaged the enor
mous amount ot eighty-three ounces of gold
to Itio ton , Alter two weeks' actual
development It Is estimated that , with the
limited possibilities ot operation , the yield
.will not bs less tliun $1.000 a day to each
of the one-sixth Interests. The boy has
refused $1GO.OOO for Ills one-sixth Interest ,
This claim Is Iho great Dolly Varden.
What Ita possibilities arc no one can con
ceive It I * pronounced a true flssure vein
nnd It runs across the famous Moose. Doubt
less It Is one of the great veins that run en
tirely through Haven mountain. It Is the
great sensation ot the entire district and
attracts hundreds of spectators every day
from all the towns , while It has also set
Bcorea of men a-dlgglng all over the mountain
Bide In search of this or other veins believed
lo be equally rich. Mining men unhesitat
ingly declare this vein contains millions of
Hut this discovery Is not all. Since these
rreal re uits have been attained Kennedy ,
hlcKnlght & Co. have struck the Dolly
, Vnrilen vein below nnd are now being con-
era'u'.ated as prospective bonanza kings.
However , they are keeping cool and waiting
for Ilia proof ot development.
Th 3 great discovery leads naturally to the
rellfotlon that upon every lilll where rich
dlv ivcrles have been made , with thousands
of i.rcjpccts throughout the camp yet to be
opened and explored , the history ot mining
Iiere for many years to come will bo a suc-
ccsstun of tlicso marvelous finds , and there

H01SE Rivnit PLACERS.
R S. Wooden , who Is largely Interested In
placer and quartz mires on the middle fork
of the llolso river , has been spending a few
days In this city , says the noise Statesman.
Assays of ere from this ledge run $260 gold
nnd ninety ounces silver per ton. Mr.
\Vbodon Is very naturally greatly elated over
He thinks one of the leading mining camps
ot the state will In a few years bo located
on the middle fork of the Dolso. That the
Kold nnd silver , too , for that matter , Is there
li no longer any question. All that Is
needed now is development. A road Is highly
necessary , and at once , everything now hav
ing to bo packed In from the mouth of More
Mr. Wooden has some very rich placer
minus near the quartz claim. Ha and his
partner , assisted a portion of the time by
another man , worked all spring and summer
on the placers. They spent almost three
weeks of that time building a ditch. It Is
understood they cleaned up $5,000.
A , Hlnkoy ot Namna washed five pans ot
gravel from the Wooden claim , The result
was brought to this city and weighed In the
Capital State bank. There uas found to be
Jl,70 , This was Mr. HInkey's first experience
In panning , ' and he probably lost anywhere
from 20 to 40 per cent of the gold.
Mr. Wooden will return to his claims soon ,
prepared to spend the winter developing his
Utah railroads contlniio to cor no thick nnd
fast. The latest development Is the Incor
poration of a company at Los Angeles , with
Salt Lake City as the objective point. It Is
believed , the Salt Lake Trlbuno says , that
this Is n consummation of the plans of the
Los Angelea Terminal company , -which has
expended over tl.000,000 In the Improvement
o' ( terminal facilities nt Los Angeles and San
I'cdro harbor. The Information concerning
the Incorporation Is conveyed by an Associ
ated press dispatch , as follows :
LOS ANGELES. Cal. , Oct. 18. Articles
ot Incorporation of the Los Ange
les. San Francisco & Salt Lake Railway com
pany hnv8 been filed , the capital stock being
? 12,000.000. The road Is to run from Los
Angeles toward Salt Lake. Utah , through
the counties ot Los Angeles , San Ilernardlno ,
Inyo , Kern , Tulare. Fresno , Merced , Stanls-
laui. San Joaquln , Santo. Clara and Alameda ,
In speaking of the railway project Mr. C.
O. llaxter of St. Louis , who Is connected with
the Gllson Asphaltum company and also
with the projected railroad line from Cre
vasse , Cole , , to the aiphaltum fields of the
Uncompahgre reservation , stated to a Tribune
representative lhat there was no foundation
for tha press reports to the effect that con
struction work was about to commence. Ex
perimental lines are being run , and tha field
lg being looked over In a preliminary way ,
for the purpose ot ascertaining the feasibil
ity of such a road and the probable cost.
The company will then probably wait until
the Uncompahgre reservation Is thrown
open before commencing operations ,
and It may bs two years beforeIt Is opened.
In speaking of the resources of the coun
try that would be reached by this line , Mr.
Baxter said the Idea that the Uncompahgre
reservation was a barren d&sert country
was a great mistake. There are raat tracts
of fertlla lands that may be brought under
cultivation , but It will require considerable
capital to establish Irrigation systems.
The Gibson company Is not shipping a
great deal of aephaltum at present , us the
Industry Is handicapped by the great cost of
transportation , the mines being situated
nlnet/ miles from the railroad.

Ilssure , and In their prospect drift upon It
have taken out considerable * pay rock. They
