DEADWOOD. 8. D.. Dc 14 (Special.)
The fl t Bt mr loud of tin ore from Forrtt
City, Wyo., wni run through the crushers
at the Rosslfer mill In thin rlty the first
of the werk. The ore romi from the tin
mines of the Benr gob h rllnt rtr-t . part of
which Is Just across the line In Wyoming,
which have been bonded by a syndicate of
English and eastern capitalist. The In
tention of those Interested In the proposi
tion l to make an experimental run of
JOB tona of the ore In order to determine
itti value and the proper method of treat
ment, and should this experiment be silc
ceasful, tin mining on a large scale mill
be commenced at once. The ore Is being
hauled from the mines on Hear gulch to
Bpearfish, where It Is loaded on the ears
and brosght to Deadwood. The ore Is be
ing crushed t.nder contract by the lesseea
of ttaa Rosslter mill, and then delivered to
a aeries of Jigs and concentrators, located
In the basement, of the mill. The syndicate,
which Is represented In thla city by
Charles Walte and at the mines by Mosea
Lyon, a prominent mining man of the mils,
baa taken options on a large acreage of
land In the Bear gulch district, and should
thla experiment which Is now going on In
Deadwood prove to be the success which
they expect It to, a Inrge force of miners
Will be placed at work developing and
opening up the ground.
Ilnudrrd Tons a !.
The Pendwood-Standard company hR3
brought down another gold brick from Its
mill on Johnson gulch, the result of a fif
teen days' run of the plnnt. Ever since
the plnnt has been In operation, something
over seven mnnlhs, experiments have been
made In tho proper treatment of the ores,
with tho result that Ita production has not
been very regular, but this stage has
passed, as the Inst two cleanups of tho
mill would prove, and as good an extrac
tion la being taken from the orca as those
of mlnea in the district. The mines are
In good shape for winter work, and a good
upply of ore la bloched out In the under
ground worklnga to keep the mill well
upplled during the winter month. Ono
hundred tons a day la being run through
the mill, most of which Is taken from
open cuta during good weather, but when
It li too cold to work In the open thero
are underground workings from which the
upply can be had.
Colnmbla Elects Officers.
The annual meting of the Columbia Cold
Wining company waa held In this city last
Monday and the following officers elected:
Fresldcnt, L. II. Schneider; vice president,
M. Ellerman; treasurer, John Mundt; sec
retary, E. A. Rlcker. The company's prop
erty la situated In the Hornblende mining
district, near Rochford, and consists of
about 150 acres of mining ground, on aome
of the claims of which a great deal of de
velopment work has been done, and at the
meeting of the directors of the company
held here It was decided to continue thla
Work with an Increased force of men. At
the present time tho company la sinking a
double compartment Bhnft on the ground
and has It down forty feet. This ahaft
wll be sunk until the 300-foot level la
reached, when a station will be established
and drlfta started along the course of the
eln In both directions. This shaft, which
has been started a short distance away
frorn where the vein crops out on the
surface, Is expected to cut the ore body at
a depth of 100 feet. The company has re
cently completed n fine hoist at the shaft
nd aa soon as possible will Install an air
compressor plant and put in power drills.
A boarding house for the men, offices anfl
machine shops have recently been com
pleted at the mine and everything has
ben arranged with the view of continuing
the work, during tho winter months. The
main ore body on which the company Is
working Is a vertical about forty feet wide
and, It la said, the ore In some Instances
has assayed up Into the hundreds of dol
lars, but these have been exceptional cases.
as the ore will not average higher than $10
ton. It Is amenable t- the cyanlding
process and should the winter's develop-
ment work bring the results which are ex
pected It Is possible that a wet, crushing
cyanide plant will be erected on the ground
lo the spring. The company is said to be
strong one and will spend money to make
Its mine pay.
Omaha Company with lUoh Claims.
The Victoria Gold Mining company ucld
Its annual meeting In Deadwcod Wednes
day evening and elected the following offi
cers: President, Allan B. Smith of Omaha;
vice president. Henry Schonlck of Chl
Vgo; treasurer, A. J. Maimer of Dead wood;
secretary. W. M. Class of Omaha. The
company la composed for the greater part
cf Omaha men, and a part of the stock is
held In Chicago and Deadwood. The loca
tion of the compnny'a ground is tn the
Ragged Top district, and the ground on
which work Is now being done embraces
ome of the very best claims located In
that dUtrlct. At the meeting of the board
cf directors It was decided to enter upon
the work of development on a largo scale,
and to lease a treatment plant In whUh to
treat soma of the ore which la now being
taken from the workings, or to build one of
Its own as soon as the weather next spring
Will permit of outside operations.
Superintendent Mason of the Magnate
Mining company was In from Iron creek
last week and says that tho surveyors have
finished the work of surveying the com
pany's ground, and it will be patented Just
as soon as it is possible to do so. Work
la being prosecuted on three different ore
shoots on the property, an1 although It may
be said that work has Just begun on the
ground, all the thee workings have made
great headway. The miners are working
Just on the rim of the ore bodies In the
three tunnels, but still the ore that Is being
taken out Is of very good grade and prom
ises to develop Into something better. The
company owns a large area of mining
grcund on this section of Iron creek, which
adjoins the Ratrged Top district, and the
ore which exists In It is similar In all of
Its characteristics to the Iron creek ore.
There Is quite a colony of miners In the
district besides those employed by the Mag.
Bate people, and thla winter the settlement
will be a large one, as all of them are
prepared to stay throughout the cold
Golden Trts.sre'i Treasures.
W. E. Brocks of Omaha, president of the
Golden Treasure Mining company, his been
In the city for a week inspecting his com
pany's property and noting the progress ot
development. The Golden Treasure com
pany owns land on the phonollte belt near
Deadwood gulch, above Central City, In a
district where rich photicltfic ere U be
ing mined for shipment. On It ground a
mall venl al of ere has b'en partially
opened by a shaft forty feet In depth. At
tha outcrop this vein was only a fe Inches
wide, but at the present depth of the shaft
Jt nils the bottom or the workings. This
haft, which was started merely for the
jurjoss of exploration, was never Intended
fcr a permanent working so the manage
ment, -sbn It established the continuity of

feet bf frre the vein Is reached. This t tin -re'
Is tir.w :n about fifty feet and the ma
tr;i.l vthlch Is coming Into It at the pres
ent time Is highly mineralized, showing
proximity to an ore body. Should this be
the case. will mean a blind lead, the
existence of which has been unknown here
tofore. The company owns a good mill
site on Deadwood ereek, and should Its
developments open up good ore bodies It
will probably build a mill the coming
The old Esmeralda mill on Rlnrktall Is
being repaired preparatory to starting up
on ore from that mln". The property, whlh
Is owned by Emll Faust of Central City, haa
been Idle for some time, but recent work
In It haa opened up a good shoot of free
milling ore, which will pay well to mine
and treat. The mill will probably have
several cyanide tanks added to It for the
treatment of the tallinga, The Jupiter
company on the same gulch Is going ahead
with Its loo-ton cyanide plant, and hopes
to have It In operation before the first
month of next year haa passed. The com
pany owns some valuable ground on the
gulch, and It has a vast amount of ore ex
posed In the different workings, which will
go better than IS to the ton, and Is a
splendid cyanldlng proposition.
The Monteiuma Iron mine, situated
within the rlty limits of Deadwood and
owned by J. T. Ollmore and associates, Is
making dally shipments of sixty tons a day
to the fjoldcn Reward smelter. The ore, a
pyrltlc. carries gold values ranging from
f 140 to $2 a ton, and Is a most excellent
ore for fluxing purposes. Its shippers clear
ing about $2 a ton on It.

The Bare Butte district, especially that
part of It In th vicinity of Galena, Is
shipping considerable ore at the present
time, some of It high grade silver-lead ore,
but the most of It carrying gold values of
a good commercial grade. The Haver Is

will soon be shipping several car loads a
week, a switch from the B. & M. narrow
gauge system having been completed this
week to Its dump. The Vnlon Hill people
are doing work on several of their prop
erties In the district and, getting out a
good quality of shipping ore, but whether
they will send any of It to a treatment
plant Is unknown, as they are Just doing
the annual assessment work on several of
their unpatented claims. Thla company
owns a large acreage of valuable mining
ground In the Galena district, which poor
management has kept In a state of unpro
ductiveness for years, and recently has
leased some of Its ground, and Individual
miners are making profit from ore which
the company could not make pay when it
was testing It In plants of Its own. Tho
Oolden Crest will soon be milling ore In
Its own mill, and there are other mines tn
the district which, within a month or so,
will be adding to the gold product of the
Hills. Altogether, tho district Is In a
most prosperous condition, with a future
which is assured, and tho beauty of Its
prosperity is the fact that It Is not con
fined to one or two big companies, but Is
enjoyed by numerous Individual owners of
KEYSTONE, S. D.. Dec. 14 (Special.)
The Ivanhoe Gold Mining and Milling com
pany Is pushing development work on Its
property in the Chllkook camp. Recently
a rich shoot of ore hs been found, which
free mills $12 per ton and assays $19. The
ledge Is five feet wide and the shaft Is
down twelve feet, and' the ledge Is Improv
ing rapidly. The company expects to take
out a car load of this ore to ship In the
near future. The geological formation and
character of ore of the camp resembles
that of the Cripple Creek district.

they can secure suffrage Is through tho

The initiative amendment to the constitu

which relates to legislation, while article

In no way changed. The error Is probably
based on the language of the Initiative

years ago he sent for his wife, sending her
sufficient money to make the Journey. She
replied that ahe could not come Just then,
and from year to year she put off coming,
hutching up first one excuse and then an
other, until finally she said she would not
leave Ber mother. Tonolgo finally assented
and sent his wife sufficient money for both
women to come on. But Mrs. Tonolgo did
cot come, and finally, suspecting some
thing wrong in the old country, he sold
out and returned to his native land. Ar

another man. They had fixed themselves
quite comfortably with the money sent

CATTDE There were only a few bunches
of cattle In the yards this morning, but
for the week the supply has been very
liberal. As compared with last week the
Increase amounts to about 6,000 head, nnd
as compared with the corresponding wtek
of Inst year there Is a gain of nearly 10,000
head. Other markets have also had very
heavy receipts, so that packers have
pounded prices in bad shape.
A liberal proportion of the offeringa all
the week has consisted of cornfeds, and
the quality has also shown some improve
ment. The high price ft the week was
16 2ft, which was paid on Tuesday for a
bunch or well-fattened cattle. Prices went
down all the week, and particularly toward
the close, so thai values are now at the
iow point of the season. The decline for
the week is put at right around 50c. There
is, of course, borne unevenness, so that
tome sales have looked better than that,
while others have been worse. Pretty good
cattle are now helling around $4 50. and It
would take something strictly choice to
bring $6 or better.
The cow market also suffered and the
decline fbr the week Is Just about the same
as on steers Trading was very slow on
most days, and it took practically all day
to make a clearance. The late arrival of
trains was largely responsible for thnt, but
nt the same time the market was very
slow. The bulk or the sales are now going
from $2.ii tc $3.25 with a few sales rrom
$3.5o to $4.00.
Bulls may be quoted about a quarter
lower for the week, and stags are fully
that much lower. Veal calves have held
right close to steady, but the sharp de
cline on other lines has had a tendency
to weaken price
There has been very little demand for
stockers and feeders, but owing to the fact
that receipts have been rather modetate
prices have not suffered as badly as might
be expected. The better grades of feeders
ore nrnhahlv not over 25c lower ror the
week, but the common stuff, and especially
the common stocssers, nave neen almost
unsalable at any price, and are more than
a quarter lower
The season for western range rattle Is
practically at a close. A few cars arrive
every day, but not enough to make a mar
ket. As a general thing prices fluctuate
on the westerns. Just about the same ss on
the natives. The quality of the offerings
as a rule Is rather inferior.
HOOS There was about an average Sat
urday's supply of hogs here today and the
market started out zvswac nigner man
I yesterday's close, or about like yesterday
i morning The bulk of the early sales went
at $"i 97'4 and $6.00. with a few choice
loads at $6.CSi and $6.05. Trading, though.
1 was not particularly brisk, as packers did
not seem tc have very liberal orders. By
ih time about half of the hogs had
changed hands the market weakened a
little, so that the close was rather slow.
The receipts of hogs ror the. week show
an Increase over laet week, but there Is
still quite a decrease as compared with the
corresponding week of last year. The gen
eral tendency of prices has been down
ward this week. Wednesday was the high
day, when the average cost was $6 12, and
Friday the low day, when the average was
down to $.' 96- On November 2 the average
was down to ." 99 and with that exception
the average up to thla week has not been
below Ji'i.t"' since last March. Prices are
Ku"ic lower than s year sgo, but about
$lio per hundred higher than two years
