CENTRAL CITY, 8. D.. June 2. (Spe
cial.) Negotiations which hire been pend
ing for some time for the Rale of tho Gusttn
(roup of mines In Biacktsll gulch were
closed last Friday afternoon, by the pay
ment of $2,500 to bind the contract and on
Fatttrdny tbr balance of the purchase price
was paid over to toe owners of the ground
B. V. Noble and associates.
This property Is one which baa been for
a number of yrars a good producer, having
been, worked In a email way by Hs former
owners, and always paying well, but as
they had been unable to put up a reduc
tion works of their own, lta ore has open
milled In cuatom plants.
The parties cuyi&g the ground are H.
T. Watson and B T. Saunders, the men
who aold the famous Kpeaiflsh ground to
I lta present owners, who have been heavily
i Interested In mining operations In the
Black IIIIIs for a number of yeara, and who
bava succeeded In almost every venture.
The price paid for tha Oustin property
Waa $25,000, only two ptyments being made
n It, the one of $2,500 paid last Friday,
I and the other of $22,500, paid Saturday
' The Oustin group adjoins the Deadbroke
company's ground, and Is looked upon as
one of the best pieces of property In the
guUb. It Is thoroughly developed, so It
will not be necessary to huit for ore, sev
eral good shoots having been exposed by
former workings In the mine.
The ore Is a free-milling proposition,
but one that will cyanide to a good ad
vantage, so the nr,w owners will at once
begin the erection of a 100-ton wet-crushing
cyanide plant upon the ground, and
as aoon aa It Is completed will be ready
to mill ore.
Tha ml.de Is situated In the midst of
good' paying properties, such aa the Im
perlal, the Kicking Horse and the Dead
, broke groups, and Its ore la of tho same
general character, and much better than
tha average ore that is being treated to
day at a profit.
The selling of this property, and the
'commencement on it of operations on an
: extensive acale, will probably be the cause
of Inducing the Elkhorn Railroad company,
which runs wHhin a mile of the ground,
to extend its road up the gulch, and should
It do so, there will be as much ore shipped
from this district aa from any In the Hills
along the Una of that road.
Mill Ready to Start I p.
DEADWOOD. S. D.. June 29. (Special.)
The Highland Chief mill, in Spruce gub:h,
which has been Idle for sometime under
going repairs and Improvements, will tart
dropping Its stamps again In a few days.
The plant at the present time has a capac
ity of fifty tone a day, but there la a prop
osition to Increase it to 100 tons, sjid this
i may be done, should pending negotiations
go through all right.
These negotiations look to tho consolida
tion of the Important interests in "North and
South Spruce and the enlargement of the
tnlll, and It Is now more thar likely that
this will be done; and with the resources
that auch a combination craild command,
begin a thorough and more systematic de
velopment of the district.
' At the present time bv.t little work has
been done on the lower contact on either
branch of Spruce, the development, of the
district having so far been confined to the
upper contact, from, -which some very One
smelting or has been taken and shipped to
tha Dead wood smelter for treatment, with
the average better than $15 a ton gold, and
some shipments, which have gone very much
The last run of the mill waa made on ore
taken from the Champion group, and the
only group In the district that can be said to
have received any development en the lower
Tola development consists of a 400-foot
tunnel, the greater part of which Is In
ore, but aa yet tha ore body has not de
veloped Into anything very big, the laat
twenty or thirty feet only ahowlng that ora
exists in quantltlea, for the shoot la be
ginning to widen eut and the values In the
ore becoming higher, and the Indications
alt pointing to the fact that the deposit will
become quite extensive after it has been
gone In on a little further.
The ore at this point la much richer
than that taken from near the mouth of
the drift, and appeara to be 'growing better
'With each day'a work.
On other groups many small shoots of
ore have been opened up on the lower con
tact, all of which carry fair valuea, but as
yet they have not received development
enough to give any idea of their extent,
although the showing is one which should
induce development, for the ore taken from
the lower contact Is a much better cyanld
Ing proposition than that taken from the
tipper, and the ground la easier worked.
Consolidation a Good Thins;.
It may be said that the district, if what
work baa been done on the upper contact
haa received no development
r there are several known ore
bodies on different groups of claim which,
with a little more work on them, will de
velop Into good propositions.
Should the proposition to consolidate be
carried out It will prove-to be one of the
beat things that has ever happened in the
district, for then ground will be developed,
the working of which cannot help but de
velop adjoining ground, and under the ar
rangement proposed all the work that will
be done will be with this object tn view.
When the Highland Chief mill is again
' ia operation, under the agreement of con
solidation, it would handle, wf.h lta In.
creased capacity, all or nearly all of the
ore which would be mined in these opera
tions, and assist materially In the develop
ment of the district, for most of the work
would be made to pay for Itself.
There Is quite a quantity of good smelt
ing ore being shipped dally from the dis
trict, but all of It Is coming from the upper
eontaet. and but little attention has been

Harrington . & Gregg last Thursday
shipped a lot of mining supplies to Mystic,
where they have begun operations on the
Falrvlew mine. -With the suppllea they
sent a number of miners to Increase the
force already at work oa the mine,
Th first shipment of ore from the prop
erty will be made to the National smelter
at Rapid City this week, several tons hav
ing accumulated on the dumps from the
operations which started a week ago.
Shipments will slso be made from tbe old
dumps of the mine, the ore in which la Just
as good as thst which Is now being takes
The new vein which was opened up In the
mine a week ago will also contribute to
the shipments, and enough ore will be
Ink en from It to pay for sinking the ahaft
which Is going down on It.
Mystic Is becoming quite a little town,
and many men are finding employment
there aside from the work which Is be
ing done on the Falrvlew.
The electro-cyanide plant at the camp
continuea In operation with good results,
making satisfactory returns on all of the
ore treated, the most of winch had here
tofore been regarded as a purely smelting
proposition. The plant la only of fifty tons
dally capacity and Is having all It can do,
so several mine owners In the vicinity are
preparing to follow the example of the
Falrvlew owners and ship to Rapid City.
Mnaey for Improvements
The annual m opting of the Dakota Mining
and Milling company was held in this city
last Ftlday and at It office of the com
pany were ejected as follows: President
Joseph RIcMe of Dead wood; vice president.
J. Goldberg, Dead wood; treasurer, John
Hunter, "Dead wood; secretary, H. J. Craw
Tha company at the meeting decided to
spend $75,000 In improvements on its mill
in Ihe First ward of this city, and among
other things Its dally capacity will be In
creased 100 tons. When the company's mill
was built it was designed for a 200-ton plant
but only the machinery for 100 tons was
The power, however, had been arranged
so that any time the mill's capacity could
be Increased an additional 100 tons a day
without Interfering with lta operations,
so that the building of the proposed ad
dltlon will not stop the wheels from going
around. Work on the addition will begin
at once and. It will be completed In
month or so.
Since It began operations the mill has
made two cleanups each month, the clean
ups averaging better than $10,000 each
There trt a vast amount of ore exposed In
the workings at the company's mines and
there will be no trouble whatever exper

rosts have been built to the mines.
Development at Hill City.
,'HILL CITY, S. D., June 29. (8peclal.)
The Granti Mining company is proceeding
with developments on its property with
the very best of and the most encouraging
of results. On the Roosevelt group the
company la at the present time working
a force or eight men, all that at the pres
ent time can be worked to an advantage,
and the miners are taking out some very
good ore. The present operations on this
group are confined to an open cut, In
which baa been expoaed an eight-foot ver
Two samplea from this being taken from
across Its face, gave assay returns of
$35.20 and $45.20, an average of better
than $40 a ton gold. Just aa soon as It
Is convenient the present force of miners
at work on this group will be Increased
and operations conducted on a larger
A two-story boarding house has recently
beea erected on the ground, a blacksmith
shop, orehouse and office building put up,
and other Improvements made. In this
vein which is being worked Is a rich
streak a small one which will go better
than $300. and this ore ia being sacked
and will be shipped.
The other om Is being stored and wilf
be treated In the company's own mill. It
being the intention to put up a ten-atamp
mill on tl-.e ground this summer. The
company Is still working a large force of
men on the St. Elmo group, running three
shifts a day, and the large working shaft,
6x10 In the clear, which was started aome
time, ago, la now down fifty feet and will
be dropped 250 feet further before cross
cutting will be begun to reach the vein.
Stations will be established at that level
and tbe stoplng of ore begun. The St.
Elmo has a lot of development work done
on It. in fact, It la one of the best de
veloped mines In the district, and the pres
ent work la for the purpose of working
It to a better advantage than la offered
from other openings made on the ground.
Machinery on the Ground.
ROCHFORD. S. D., June 29. (Special.)
The Drat carload of machinery for tbe com
pressor plant of the Ohto-Deadwood com
pany has arrived on the ground and the
balance la expected to reach the camp
every day. The big 100-horse-power boiler
will be placed In position within a few
days and the work of setting up the other
machinery started 'on.
While awaiting the arrival of the air com
pressor plant operations on the mine have
been going on slowly with a small force of
miners, but now the number will be in
creased and three shifts a day employed
until the big working tunnel which la being
driven in on the "Swanson" vein ahall bave
I been completed. Thla tunnel Is now In
about 125 feet, and going ahead alowly, all
the work being done by hand, but with alx
power drills In operation It will go on
Thla tunnel, which ia following along the
strike of the vein, will be driven In for
876 feet further, when the work of getting
out ore will be commenced.
The ore Is a free-milling proposition and
carries very good values, some of It being
rich, but -tbe average of a good commercial
grade, and as there Is a very large body of
It It is the Intention of the company to
build a reduction plant of its own for Its

I Body of Ore
LEAD, 8. D.. June 19. (Special.) The
shaft on the Pluma company'a ground, ad
Joining the townslte of Lead, is now down
240 feet and dropping at the rate of twe
feet a day. Stationa have been estab
lished at various levels and the company
wiU soon begin stoplng out ore.
The main ore body has been exposed for
a distance of about 1,000 feet along Its
strike and tt is known to be from 250 to
400 feet In width. It greatly resembles the
ore bodies on the Homestake free-milling
oen, wnicn it adjoins, and carries the sami
valuea. from $4.60 to $7. The three-corn-,
partment shaft, which Is now sinking ca
ore. will be carried down to the 1.000-foot
level before operatlona on it are ap
pended, and perhaps deeper.
The company for the last month haa
been repairing the old Hawkeye stamp
mill, and has tt about ready to rua. and
it la tho iatentloa to start the stanrps in
it drawing oa ors from the Pluma o-ound
The ore from the workings, a larva quan
tity of which' has accumulated, will be
delivered to the mill, which Is situated
about a anile from the mine, bv a wir
tramway, which can supply ore. enough
to keep a 100-ctamp mill In operation.

man Improves his conduct. That la the
time within which the contract sayi the
work must be finished, but It will require
different weather than that of the last
few weeks to meet the conditions of the
agreement, the contractors say.
When completed the company will have
In these structures a new roundhouse,
boiler and machine shops and a new power
house. The entire structure will be
equipped with new machinery and fixtures,
the Installation of which is Involved In the
contract as necessary to the completion of
the work. The machinery Is being put In
as rapidly as possible as the building pro-
A large force of men, about $50, Is now
at work on these buildings and every effort
Is being made to advance tbe labor, but
the men bave been seriously retarded by
the rainy days, which make It Impossible
for the bricklayers to accomplish much.
The bricklayers are putting in their strong
est work now on the large smokestack,
which when completed will be 200 feet and
six Inches In height. The most difficult part
of this stack Is up and the height at pres
ent Is 105 feet. The foremen say from
now on it should be possible to raise from
five to seven feet a day or finish it within
at least twenty days. With this work out
of the way the bricklayers will have ac
complished their most difficult task and
will be at the end of their labora.
Carpenter Work to Come.
All the brick work outside of that en
smokestack, tbe foremen say, can be, .with
favorable weather, completed within four
or five days. The moat that remains to be
done on the structure as a whole is car
penter work and roofing.
The roof Is well advanced, but the most
skillful part of this work yet rematas. The
roof Is to be finished with gravel and glass
and it Is estimated that two weeks will be
required to finish this work. Almost all
tbe frame structure of the roof haa been
erected and the entire force at work on
that part of the building soon will be avail
able for putting on the finishing touches.
Work began on the new shops January
18 and the men consider the progress made
entirely satisfactory in view of the numer
ous obstacles which could not be avoided.
When completed the shops will enable the
company to meet Us demands with greater
facility and better actual results. For
some time there has been an urgent need
tor more shop room and larger facilities
and it is expected that these Improvements
will be entirely sufficient to meet every de
mand. A much larger force of men can. be
employed when tbe company sees fit to hire
GAS ENGINES F0R FARM WORK
They Are Coming; Into General I'se,

"Some of these days," said R. F. Rogers,
a philosopher from Ottumwa, Ia., who
travels for an Omaha supply house and
who was at the Merchants yesterday be
cause It was too rainy to attend church;
"aome of theae days it is going to be up
to somebody to writs a book about tho
passing of the farm hand. His days are
numbered because his usefulness Is van
ishing. People in the city don't realize
what perfection tbe farmers of Iowa and
the ranchmen of Nebraska are attaining
In the equipment of their placea. It hasn't
been so mighty long since it was a case
of main strength and awkwardness with
ths 'honest yeomanry,' and In those days
It required a 'hand' for everything that
horses couldn't do. But Yankee inventive
genius has made great strides snd the last
clever trick was the creation of the gas
engine and incidentally the automobile.
"It Is only within the last two or three')
years tnat tne engines nave been perfected
into practicability, but It would surprise,
you to aee how many farmers have alreary
Invested. They can make one engine sevve
so many purposes, you know, and the west
ern farmer can recognise a good thing
JUBt about as quick as anybody. Purr phased
originally to run a pump, theae engines
they Impress into a diversified d'jty that
includea running cream separators and pro
pelling small corn shelters. Ths other day
I waa told about a ranchman -who came
from Connecticut, I suspect, for he had
coupled hla engine onto somo home-made
fans In hla dining room and, -was turning
them with a rope belt.
"And though It may sera a bit strange,
it Is nevertheless a fact that the automobile
boom haa done a great deal for the farmer
In an Indirect way. I. -has resulted In
much attention being given to small motors
and englnea with the result that they have
been much Improved make and lessened
some In price. The horseless carriage has
stimulated manufacture, and the big con
cerns have equlppsd their plants to put
on the market many new grades and atyles
of power-makers. t another two years
I believe we wl'j find ourselves living In
such sn era of gas and electric power as
few .people no anticipate. Already tbe
country towns are talking automobiles with
a vengeance, the residents of many of them
have purchased machines, end It Is a fact
that many western farmers are preparing
to buy, or at leaat aay they are."
