Impervloaa to Decay, They Are
Wanted for Woodwork of Smelt
lac Plaat of several Com.,

LEADWCOD. 8. D., Feb. 18. (Special.)
The Homcetake Mining company has pur
chased of the Galena Mining and Smelt
ing company a quantity of redwood tim
bers and will use them In the construction
of the new 600-ton cyanide plant at Gay
vllle. There arc several carloads of the
timbers, which were brought from Wash
Ington sevenl years ago by the Union
Hill company when Franc! C. Grable's
enterprise were In th ascendancy, and
were Intended for the smelter projected by
the Union Hill company at Galena. Tha
Union Hill company waa succeeded by ths
Galena Mining and Smelting company after
the smelter project had been abandoned.
Some of the timbers are of enormous dl
menslons, on of them being hauled away
from Galena recently by the Homestak
that made a big load for a narrow gauga
flatcar, and protruded beyond the car at
each end. It I a species of cedar, and Is
almoat absolutely Impervious to decay
hence its value for mill b-illding.
Cutting Timber Near Galena.
George L. Griggs and James Secoy of
Galena are cutting timber on the property
of the Galena Mining and Smelting com
pany near Galena and furnishing mine
timbers and lumber to the Clover Leaf
Gold Mining company at Rubatx and ties
to the Burlington railroad. They are em
ploying a large number of man, their pay
roll amounting to $3,000 a month. . Tha
timber is hauled out of the region by teama
at present, but as soon aa ths Burllngtbn
can complete its line into th district tbs
contxactora will have better transporta
tlon facilities. The rails have been laid,
but owing to ths frost in th ground ths
trackbed ha not been aurfaced and it' is
not considered safe to run trains.
George Bachman, who has been working
th Monarch mine under leas for ssvsral
years, has increased his working force.
Mr. Bachman has been working the prop
erty ic a small way heretofore, as the ore
was found In narrow pipes, and it was Im
possible for more than one or two men to
work at a time. Much of this ore ran as
high as $90 a ton and was shipped in
sacks to the Deadwood smelter. There hss
lately been a widening of the or stringers
and th grade continued excellent. Th
ground belongs to the Golden Reward, and
is on the divide between Spruce and Two-Bit
gulchea, three miles from Deadwood.
Golaar Deeper la Mother Earth,
Th Glob Mining company, whose prop
erty Is situated adjoining the townaiu of
Lead on th west, has drifted 100 feet
through th slates from its main .tunnel
Tha slate ar highly mineralised and
ther Is a grant deal of lodg matter ex
posed, but it Is considered too Bear the
surface, and th company intends to open
up the property at greater depth.
The University Gold Mining company is
working in a large body of pyrltlo or a
few mile north of Custsr. Ths or waa re
cently- discovered in th main tunnel, and
Is being followed in a srlnse. J The vein
s wider than the tunnel and goes down at
an angle of about forty-live degrees. It I
a quarts, heavily impregnated with pyrites
of iron, and th sulphur, la so strong that
its odor Is almost offensive while the min
ers ar working their drills- la th mate
rial. Assaya have been made, giving re
turn of $4.60 in gold and 60 cents stiver.
It Is a good concentrating proposition, and
can be easily reduced from eight to one.
Eastern Men Elected Officers.
Ths National Smelting company held Its
annual meeting and election of officers at
the principal office In Boston, Maaa., last
week, at which ths following officers wer
chosen: John E. Parry, president: H. I
Worcester, vice president; Gustav Goep

Rapid City, and will have It ready to blow

Th new Corliss ngln for the 8 pear Ash

The cyanide plant of th Deadwood-
Standard Gold Mining company was closed
down for a few days recently while the

fire in some unaccountable way and was
entirely destroyed. It was necessary to re
plac it befor atarting tb mill again. Th
