MINING IN THE BLACK HILLS
Union Hill Oompent it Bonded o New

QUARTER OF A MILLION INYOLVED
Hew Omn Will Opri t'p the Prop

Biggest Deal la District
i for Years.
GALENA. 8. D., May 10 (8peelal.) The
ground of the Union Hill company, most
of which la situated In tha vicinity of
Galena, ha been bonded by an eastern
party and 17.600 paid duwn to bind the bar
jaln. The Union Hill company owns over
MO claims In the district, the most of
which is together In one body, and on some
of them very rich ore exists. The del,
which was engineered by James D. Hardin,
Involves the payment of 8:60.0 0. which Is a
rery low price, when the production of the
property In the past Is taken into con
sideration. On the ground Is a twenty
stamp mill In good working order, and In
It ore from the Nevada, Union Hill. Hoo
doo, Eureka and other claims owned by
the company has been treatel and proven to
carry In many Instances high values, while
the avers ge ore has more than exceeded
the richness of that found In many of the
mines of the district. The Union Hill com
pany has been cursed by, poor manage
ment when It wns In operation, and none
of Its effort f make Its grouni profitable
had been successful, snd to many In the
district It looked ss though more of an
effort waa made to sell stock than to
mske the company a paying proposition.
On the Union Hill claim, especially, there
't an Immense deposit of high grsde ore.
nd to miners It has always seemed that It
would be an easy thing to make Its work
ing profitable, In fact leases have been
given to men slnco the company closed
dawn operations, not only on the Union
1(111, but on several other claims, and the
men leasing have shipped the ore and made
A good prortt. It beJng Identical with the
ore which the company could not make
ry In Its own mill close to the mines.
There Is a better feeling In the camp now
lhat the bond haa been taken on the
I round, for It Is said that the gentlemen
Interested In It are men who know the
I lness, and who will make an effort to
net money out of the ground Instead of
i lock. The people wh have bonded the
property are New York and Chicago men,
rnd have already made arrangements to
1 9 an extensive work on It. Besides the
f.t? milling veins and slllctous ore shoots
on the property, on many of the claims
large silver-lead ore bodies have been
pened up, and some of the richest sliver
o. mined In the Hills has been taken
Will Open I p the Mine,
The new company. It is said, wll de
velop and open up the known ore bodies
on the ground, put the mill In shape to
treat ore and make additions to It In the
s tape of a cyanide annex. All the cltltens
'of the camp hall the change In ownership
vith delight, for It will mean the making
I roducllve of a large tract of country which
I..1S for years remained idle and give em
ployment to a large force of men, be
tides enhancing the value of property which
tdjolns the holdings of the Union Hill,
thould the sale go through it will be the
Lggest deal that haa taken place In the
Lar, Butte district in years and will
Leneflt every property holder In It.
Preparations are under way for again
x orking the large silver-lead deposits in
lae old Richmond mine. The .Richmond
as, before tha price of silver declined,
t.ie largest producer of the white metal In
Lie Black Hills, but since that time it has
Lorn worked only occasionally, and then
lor the rich ore which It contained, the
0. e of average grade being allowed to re-
1. sin In the mine. . The ore, which occurs
l;i the flat formations, Is ss good a smelt
ing proposition ss can be found anywhere,
tnd will carry from IS to too ounces of sil
vsr to the ton. The big. tunnel from
vhlch the mine in former years had been
tvorked Is being cleaned out and repaired,
f nd as soon as this work is done a force
of. men will be put at work getting out the
0. e, for It is there In "the, mine ready for
mining and there will be no need of pros-p-srtlng.

Bad weather and worse roads have do

V. H. Byrna Resigns.
DEADWOOD. S. D.. May 10. (Special.) A
t-liange has taken place In the management
of the Penobscot Mining company, F. R.
I yms, the man who put the big mill at
Ma it land in operation, and who conducted
the deals which resulted In. the company
gaining possession of over 1,000 acres of
tile most-valuahle land tn the Garden City
district, resigning, and his place being
filled temporarily by F. R. Baldwin, assist
rnt manager. Mr. Byrns Is a large stock
holder of the company and one of its di
rectors, . and his resignation was according
to the agreement made by him with the
ompany when he first took charge. The
company Is 'now in successful operation and
irr. Byrns, having fulfilled his contract.
Till eneago In mining In the Hills, being
Interested with eastern parties In a large
tract of ground In the Ragged Top district,
wtdch will he opened up this year and
riant erected on It. The Penobscot com
pany on Wednesday IbsI sent a brick to
th assay olHce In this city which weighed
1. W0 ounces. The gold In the. renobscot
rtrrles a little silver, so Its bricks ar,c
v-orth about 117.50 an ounce, which would
rlace the value of the Inst semi-monthly
leanup of the mill at HS.B.V).
The Clover Ieaf company, operating the
Uncle Bam and ' associate properties, on
Tuesday last removed Its former superin
tendent, T. C. Blnney. and placed O. B.
Amsden In charge of the work. Under the
r-ianngcment of Blnney the mine hns never
equaled the product of former years, and
the heavy expense, of operation and devel
opment more than eat up the profits of the
cleanups. The property Is one of the best
freemllllng propositions In the Hills and
has upon It one of the most complete hoist
ing snd milling plants in the west nntslde
of the Homestske company. It has been
a wonderful producer in the past snd under
tha direction of the new superintendent
should prove to he ss productive ss It his
ever been. The big sixty-stamp mill on the
Ifoporty will not be started up ngwln until
the errors of former superintendents hsve
been corrected and the mine placed In
rhepe to take out ore economically and In
sufficient quantities to keep It running con
ntantly. On the 600-foot level of the mine
there recently was made one of the richest
strikes of free milling ore ever found in
he Hills, some of It running up Into the
thousands of dollars and Just ss rich aa
that taken fro-n 'he Holy Terror In Its
best days. but. It Is said very little of this
ore found Its way to the mill. Under the
new superintendent a new and more careful
system of working will be Inaugurated.
Will Enlarge Its Plant.
The Deadwood-Standard company last
Thursday sent down from Its mill In the
Ragged Top district soother cleanup, the
result of a ten-day run. which wits valued
at about 84.000. The company is making
arrangements to enlarge Its present 100-ton
plant to one having a capacity of too tons

Hidden Treasure and Oolden Treasure com
panies are working on excellent showings
of phonollte ore. On this belt the Pennsyl
vania company, which owns 250 acres of
ground, is the best known and the only
property which Is now on producing bssls.
It having made many shipments of high
grade ore from Its workings, and Is now
taking out some very rich material. It
has a large ven of ore. which will average
about $17 a ton. The Gladiator Is preparing
to erect a plant of its own for treating the
ore taken from Its mines, and will have It
completed and In operation. It Is said, be
fore the summer has passed.
The Hidden ' Fortune mill on Whltewood
creek below Deadwood .started up last
Monday on a trial run and for the purpose
of adjusting the machinery. The delivery
of ore to the mill will begin this week and
It will be kept In operation steadily. The
company is said to have some very rich
free-milling ore, which will be sent to the
plant for treatment, as well as the slllclous
ores upon which It Is proposed that the
plant shall operate.
Good weather Is Just setting In In the
Hills and Its continuance will mean the
Inauguration of a great deal of work which
has been waiting for It.

CATTLE There were a few bunche, of
cattle in the yards this morning, but not
enough to make a market. The supply for
the week, though, ha, been very h .ivy.'a,
there Is a gal.i over the big run of last
week amounting to nearly 1.000 head and a,
compared with the corresponding week of
last year receipts Hre nesrly double. The
tahie or comparative receipts aoove win
show the exact figures.
The big bulk of the receipt, all th, week
ha, been made up of beef steers and the
quality has been above the average. In
spite of the big run the demand ha, been
sufficient to nrevent any serious break In
prices. Besides the local buyer, there were
several outsiae- nuyers, so mere was a
good outlet for all that arrived. The first
part of the week. In view of the enormous
receipts, packers succeeded In taking off a
little, hut the latter part of the week the
loss wns just about regained and the mar
ket mav be quoted practically steady for
the week. On Friday packer, did not take
hold of the heavy cattle very good, but the
same was true the previous Friday, so that
even the heavv cattle show very little
chrnge. The bulk of the fair to good cattle
sell from 34 60 to 34 80. with the choicer
grades colng largoly from S4.K5 to 1T.J. and
n strlctlv choice bunch would undoubtedly
sell considerably shove that figure. The
pnrt fat cattle ,ell largely from 34 00 to
The supply of cows snd heifer, h not
been verv excessive snd there Is not much
change In the mnrkct. The first of the
week packers took off a little, hut the loss
wns rcpalncd by the close of the week. In
soma cneps th Medium grades, such ss nre
selMnaj fro"- W.RO down, are a little lower,
owing prohnhly to the fact that cows hn"'
log tho effects of grass nre beginning to ar
rive at some of the mnrhets snd are liable
to put In their appeersnce here at any
time. Canners are selling largelv fnm 3J.A0
to $2 75 medium prade.t from 83.00 to 33.80
and he better grades from 83 fO to $4 50.
Bulls have sold freely sll the week and
may be quoted steady. There has been a
big run of veal calves at all points this
week srd aa a result prices hnve taken-a
drop of fully 50c. Top calve, ar, now sell
ing at tVi.00. a, against $6.50 last week, and
occeslonallv a calf brought $6.75 last week.
The stocker and feeder market ha, also
been going down hill at a rapid rate. The
demand from the country has not, been up
to exneetntlons. so that all kinds may be
nuoted ?5i 50c lower than a week ago. the
grestest decline being on the commoner
ii tides It now tskes something fancy to
bring over $1.50. The choice gTede, ar, now
selling from $4.30 to $4.66, medium kinds
from $4.on to $4 35 and the commoner grades
from $4.00 down..
HOGS There was a light run of hogs this
morning even for a Saturday, and th,
market opened Just about steady with yes
terday's general market. Trading though
wan riot particularly active and toward the
closje the market weakened and the last
hogs sold 2H5c lower. The bulk of the
fcood weight hogs sold at $6.62V and $86
fnd Prime heavies sold ss high as $6 70. The
llrhter loeds went from $6.60 down. The
light receipts soon brought the market to
a close. , ,
For the week receipts show an Increase
oveY last week, s mounting to shout d-SV
and ns compared with last year of 8.000
bend. The tendency of prices hns been
steadllv downward and as compared with
hi cn'e of lat week the decline amounts
to 10il5 Today', decline takes the mar
ket to the lowest point reached since Jan
uary 28. Reptesentative ssles:

SHEEP There was no sheep and lamba
on sale this morning, as those that arrived
were consigned direct t local packers.
For the week receipts have been rather
light, aa there Is a decrease as compared
with last week, amounting to over 2.000
head. As compared with the correspond
ing week of last year though, there Is an
Increase of about 400 head.
The demand on the part of local packers
has been sctlve and all desirable grades
have changed hsnds as rapidly aa offered.
The general tendency of prices -has been
upward and aa compared with the close of
last week It la safe to quote the more de
sirable grades of sheep and lambs 16Vi2fc
