MINING IN THE BLACK HILLS
Search for 11 Graj'i Lmt BooaDia Will Be
Taken Up Again.
STORY OF THE EARLY DAYS IS RETOLD
Many Fntlle Attentats Hare Been
Made te Locate the opposed
Rich Vela Described by
CVSTER CITT, S. D.. April 19. (Spe
cial.) With the opening of spring of each
year since 187C It has. been customary (or
certain parties living in the vicinity of
Custer City to go In search of the famous
lost bonania discovered In that year by
AI Gay. Although the search has been
continued through these yeara, do one has
yet' succeeded In finding the rich ledge
from which Qay broke the quarts which
he brought Into the Gordon stockade In
1875. Many miners hsve believed that they
have found the vein during their prospect
ing throughout the southern Hills, but the
quarts and the location of these various
finds have never tallied with the character
of the rock, nor baa the location coincided
with the situation of the vein as described
by Gay to his Intimates. Sam Shankland
of Cuater City and Jamea Demereau of the
same city are the only ones now in the
Hills who spent the winter of 1875 with
Gay in the Gordon stockade, which was
located a ahort distance below tbe present
townslte ot Custer City. These gentlemen
tell stories which agree In all essential
Tells the Story of Gay.
Mr. Shankland. who was very friendly
with Oay during that winter, says that it
was the custom of Gay, who was a cele
brated hunter, to leave the stockado In
the morning and return at night, always
coming back with game. Gat although an
American born, had lived for so many years
with the Indians that his character waa
more like that of a redman than a white,
and he always made these excursions into
the mountains by himself, never allowing
another to accompany him. He always
went on horseback, and as he waa more ot
a hunter than a prospector, never carried
with him pick or shovel and what llttlo
digging he did In those days waa done with
a butcher knife. One evening he returned
to tbe camp at the stockade with some
rock tied up In his handkerchief. Mr.
Shankland says that he aaw this rock
crushed ' up and panned out, the free gold
coming out of the quartz in grains as large
as wheat; It was very rich, and from a
piece of quarts as large as a walnut aa
high as a couple of dollars was taken. Gay
made several of these solitary excursions
after this and always returned from them
with samples of the same kind of quartz,
and Just aa rich as the first brought Into
camp. Mr. Shankland describes the quartz
specimens aa pure quartz, flattened on the
sides, as though the vein from which It
had been taken was well cut up by seams,
vhlch had filled with oxide of Iron, giving
the quartz a reddish appearance.
Waa One qt the Six.
In August, 1875, all of tbe miners and
other white men were ordered out of the
Hills, as the country belonged to the In
dians, who valued It highly as a hunting
ground.- This order of 'removal was en
forced by General Crook and the troops un
der his command, and the prospectors who
had flocked Into the Hills were compelled
to pack up and leave, Just as they had be
gun to explore the country and before any
finds of great Importance bad been made.
There was one exception to , this order,
General Crook allowing six men to remain
In the Hills and guard the property, which
could not be carried out with the whites
when they left in charge of the soldiers.
Shankland and Gay were of the six white
men left in the stockade, and It was not
until .after the soldiers bad left and the
l.iyrt white prospectors with them that Gay
began bringing into tbe stockade his rich
specimens of quartz.
In '1878 the people again began to flock
Into the Hills, coming in such large num
bers that It was Impossible to stop them
with the small force ot soldiers In the coun
try, and shortly after the opening of the
year Custer City, which had been laid out
by. the earlier proapectoTS and fortune-
hunters In 1875, was again a busy, hustling
place of 8,000 or 10,000 people. In April,
1876, the reports from Deadwood gulch in
the northern Hills ot the rich strikes of
placer gold made on the stream of that
name, caused a stampede thither, and Al
Gay. went with the crowd, he having re
turned to Custer City shortly before the
stampede began from tbe Red Cloud agency.
where he had been visiting with his In
dlan friends. Before going to the North
ern Hills Gay put in about two weeks hunt
ing for the ledge, but he never was able to
again locate it. He located a placer claim
on Deadwood creek and, cleaning up about
15.000, left for the eaat and civilization.
Search for the RlehVeln.
He spent a few months in the east and
again returned to the Hills In 1876, locat
ing in Custer . City, from which point he
made numerous trips Into the mountains In
search of the vein from which, he bad taken
the specimens, but was again unsuccessful.
He returned to the Hills in 1878, and again
in 1880, after his unsuccessful search in
1878, and spent several months on both oc
caslons In a vain sesreb for the lost trea
sure. After his failure in 1880 Gsy went
to Montana and lost his life by being burned
up In. bis cabin. Since then every spring
parties have spent montha going over the
ground supposed to have been traveraed by
Gay in hie solltsry pilgrimages in 1875, but
none of them have ever succeeded in un
earthing the treasure-trove from which
Gay's fabulously rich ore was taken, al
though many have believed that they had
It for a time. The mine is in ths southern
Hills, somewhere in the vicinity of Custer
City, and will probably be uncovered some
day, or run upon accidentally, for Gay baa
described It as a ledge of rock sticking out
of the ground for some distance, and aald
that it could be traced on tbe surface for
several hundred feet. -
lieai'.y to Beg-In Work.
N. O. Ford will begin work on the Grizzly
Bear mine next week. All of his equipment
is on ths ground and he la only waiting lor
the frost to get out of ths ground before be
ginning operstlons on the property with a
good-sized force of men.
F. C. Crocker, manager of the J. R. Min
ing company, has taken an option on the
Fly . mine and the Crown Point property.
Tbe property ia owned by Jack Lyle and
Charles Eachron of Hill City. The price to
be paid for the ground Is not stated, but it
Is understood that It will be a large one,
aa the property has exposed upon It a num
ber of good verticals of ore.
Placer mining in Custer county Is not one
of the worked out mining propositions by a
good deal, for there are several parties now
taking out good wagea and better from the
gravel of the many gulchea In the vicinity
of Cuater City and In many Instances where
the diggings are close to water or where a
sluice bead could be brought to the ground
the product of placer gold would be very
large. Mark Foran and others who are
wrirklng in a small gulch en.pt) lng Into
Tenderfoot, near ths Old Bill mine, al
though they have to cart their dirt quite a
distance to water, are taking out much
better than 85 a day to the man. Herman
Gaugbenbaugh and W. J. Francla have
found good diggings on French creek below
the city, and sevsrsl others working on the
Detuereau tax on the same creek are mak
ing better than wages. These are dry dig
gings, but the haul to water Is not far. It
is said that tha dla-a-lna-a on the French
creek ban will to from 15 to S to 10 cents
tha Ban with minit that will MV
well as that It will not take long to take
Ivaahoe Gronp la Sold.
The deal which has been pending tor sev
eral weeks for the sale to Indianapolis par
ties of the Ivanhoe group of claims, seven
teen In number, south of Kekstone, hss been
closed. The new owners will begin ex
tensive operations on the ground at once. A
new hoist and air compressor have been
purchased and so soon as they can be put
up a working shaft will be started and
sunk to a depth ot 600 feet. The shaft
will follow down the strong vertical which
shows on the Detroit, one of the claims,
and atatlons established at various levels
and drifting on the vein begun. There are
now fifty tona of oro on the dump which
will go 125 to the ton gold. The new
owners, after the mine baa been opened up
sufficiently to watrant It, will erect a
treatment plant of its own and treat tbe ore
which is now on the dump and which will
be taken from the various workings on the
group. The ore will freemlll, and the
greater part of its values can be aaved by
The Central Black Hills Copper company
has Its buildings completed and Its tanks
set In place and Is about ready to begin
operations on Its ore, which will be treated
by leeching. Those In charge ot tbe work
have every confidence that the process will
prove satisfactory with the kind of ore
found in the ground of the company, and
prove to be the most economical manner ot
handling the product from Its mines.
The mine companies In the southern Hills
are all busy, and the output of the mines
Is now more than twice as great an It was
two months ago. No difficulty Is experi
enced in disposing of the product of the
mines, It all being contracted for in ad
vance, and at prices which give a splendid
profit to those working ground.
Will Go to Bedrock.
Kldd A Co. of Minneapolis have Installed
a plant on Castle creek, at Mystic station,
consisting of a twenty-horsepower boiler
and pumping machinery, and will endeavor
to reach bedrock on the creek, when they
will put In a placer plant similar to that !n
operation on Rapid creek below Pactola. It
has always been said by old-time placer
miners that if bedrock cculd be reached on
Castle creek diggings of fabulous richness
would be found, and several small fortunes
have been squandered In an endeavor to
reach that goal, but In only one Instance
1th success, ' and that at a point near
where the present operations have begun.
When bedrock was reached then those en
gaged in the work only succeeded In get
ting a few tubfuls of dirt, but It proved to
be very rich In placer gold, and since that
time numeroua Individuals and companies
have been trying on the banks of the
stream. Tbere Is very little fall to Castle
creek, and it carries a . large volume of
water, so it Is lmposaibtle to employ tho
usual method of tho placer miner In get
ting at the rtch deposits of gravel which'
overlie tedrock, that Is by running a bed
rock flume, so resort has been had to pump
ing, and with no success whatever. The !
new company believes that it can teach
bedrock, and that when it does It will be
amply repaid for its expenditure of time
and money. , .'
DEADWOOD, S. D.. April 19. (Special.)
The stockholders of the Horseshoe Mining
company held a meeting at Beulah, Wyo.,
last Tuesday and the proposition to issue
$600,000 In bonds, i the bonds to be a first
mortgage on thrf'rapital etock of the com
pany, was ratified,'.' It Is now believed that
the company wtjl, again resume .operations
in its mines and. different treatment planta
hnd that It will proceed along lines which
will have the approval of the moat con
servative of its management.
The Penobscot .company is now shipping
fifty tona of smelting ore a day. 8ome of it
has lately been sent to the Omaha Grant
smelter in Omaha. Returns from these
shipments have given an average of $46 a
a ton. The Spearflsh company, for the first
half of April, although the mill during that
time has been Idle for several days, await

CATTLE-The supply of cattle here this
wee has been very heavy, as there Is en
increase over laat week amounting to
nearly 4,000 head, and aa compared with
tne same week of last year the Increase
amounts to over 9,00o luad. Supplies th.s
week have also been the heaviest of. any
week this year. Owing to this liberal run
prices have fluctuated back and forth quite
The big end of the receipts all the week
was made up of cornied steers and the
quality was about the best of the yac,
comparatively few short fed cattie being
offered. The rirst two days of the week
prices advanced repicly, Lut as receipts
were very luavy tht last haif of the week
prices broke so thnt practically all of the
advance ot Monday and Tueadjy was lost
and closing prices were about the same aa
they were lat week. The bulk oi the goou
cattle sold from 34.6) to $1.80, with the
choicer grades sel.lng largely from 84.80 to
l-.oo. Sirlctly prime cattle sold irom 85.0J
The cow market also advanced the first
of the week, but prices followed the down
ward course of vulues on Bteers the latter
part of the week. Cow ttult In fact suffered
a little worse than rteers, so that closing
prices are KKtflbc lower than the close of
last week on all but cannera, which held
about steady all the week. Canners sold
largely from $2.25 to $2.75, fair to good cowa
from $3.00 to $3.75 and the better grades
went largely from 13.75 to $4.35.
Bulls sold to good advantage all the week
where the quality waa good and the week
closed with price about steady with the
close of last week. The commoner kinds
sold from $2.75 to $3.30, while the better
grades went from $3.30 to $4.10. Veal calves
held fully steady all the week, the better
grades selling montly from $6.00 to $6.50 Slid
as high as $6.75 was paid.
Stockers and feodere of good quality were
strong all the ween ana in raci prices
reached the highest point of the season.
Anything at all decent advanced fully KKtf
15c and in a good many cases as nuch aa
25c. Feedtr buyers bought a large number
af ihe better grades of warmed-up cattle
Jor more money than the killers would give.
'1 he better grades of feeders uold largely
from $4.40 to $4.60, with fancy cattle selling
as high aa M.l. The Talr to good grades
went from $4.00 to $4.40 and others from $4.00
HuOB-There was not a heavy run of
hogs hire today and the market opened
rullv steady with yesterday. Trading was
fairly active, but still the market was not
exactly brink and toward the close packers
did not eera to be very anxious for sup
plies and the c'.oe waa slow and weak. The
bulk of the medium weight hogs sold from
$7.10 to $7.15 and the good heavy hogs sold
from $7.16 to $7.20 and as high aa $7.25 waa
paid. The lightweights sold from $7.10
For the week receipts have been quite
liberal as there Is an Increase over last
week of about 13.000 head, and as com
pared with the corresponding week of laat
year tne gain amuunii 10 muui ,uuu neau.
Prices have fluctuated back and forth to
quite an extent, but the general tendency
has been downward and a net loan of
about 5O10c Is noted during the week. Rep

SHEEP There were not enough sheep
here today to make a test of the msrket,
but far the week supplies have been about
the Fume us for last week and a little
heavier than for the corresponding week
of last year. The tendency of prices, how
ever, has been decidedly downward at all
points and In fact the break is the most
radical of the season. All kinds, the better
grades as well as the common kinds, can
tafely be quoted 6&75o lower than a week
aizo. The principal reason for thix sudden
drop, us has been previously mentioned, is
the fact that Arlsona and Texas grass
sheep are now arriving on the southern
river markets and also at Chicago and aa
proapects are favorable for liberal receipts
from this time on the break In feed stuff
la not to be wondered at.
. The bulk of the offerings now coming for
ward at this time constats of clipped stock
and the quality of late has been tar from
choice. A few bunches of good stuff ar
rive every day. but- the big end Is only part
fat. Quito a few wooled lambs are still
The feeder market has been very dull all
tne weea, ss tne aemanu and also ths
supply has been very limited. Prices have
of course, followed the downward course
of valuea on fat stuff.

Tradlac Irreanlar at Berlin.
BERLIN, April 19. The bourse had an
Irregular tendency last week. Trading
opened Tuesday under tha Influence of
tne Northern Securities decision and
rumors that American buyers were at
tempting to cancel a large order for Ger
man pig Iron. The latter assertion caused
some selling of Iron shares, which de
pressed quotations several points. This
rumor, however, waa denied with authority
and Iron as well as coal shares recovered
later under the Influence of excellent trade
reporto. The Northern Securities decision
and the week tone on Well street failed to
have a marked effect. Insomuch as London
reported higher quotations than New York.
The newspapers devote much space today
to a discussion of the American actuation.
The National Zeltung compares prices on
the New York stock market today with
those of a year ago to prove that Wall
street hat not Indulged In speculative ex
cesses as has been often aswerted In ths
German financial reviews. This paper con
cludes Its financial article aa follows: "Al
though the business situation In the United
State shows greater Improvement than a
rear ago and trust consolidations are more
requent than ever, still the Stock exchange
has kept cool and the quotations today are
considerably lower than at this time a
year ego. Hence," continues the National
Zeltung, "there la no trace of speculative
The success of the German loan has sur-
rirlsed the most sanguine. It caused buy

One of the moat marked features of the
week's transactions was the advance In the
shares of ocean navigation companies upon
Improving freight business. North German
Lloyds rose 6.65 during the week.

London Stock Market.
TONDON, April 19. Upon resuming after
the Easter vacation the Stock exchange
was nervous concerning the effect of the
Northern Securities decision, and thla,
added to the mid-monthly settlement, the
rumors concerning Macedonia and the bud
get uncertainty depressed prices. In the
enrly port of the week Americans were sold
ot a lively rate, but It was) soon seen that
the effect of the Northern Securities de
clKion had been slight and a hardening
process prevailed. There was, however,
very llttlo doing In any direction excepting
Argentine rails. Consols were sold down,
owing, It is thought, to the near approach
of the Transvaal loan, which Is believed to
be a better Investment security. Pending
the Issuance of the budget on April 23 ac
tivity In any direction Is not expected, al
though the week's closing prices throughout
