MINING IN THE BLACK HILLS
Hew Owner of Union Hi 1 Almost Heady

HAVE MUCH RICH ORE IN SIGHT
HoBHlikt Brit Company. Organised
to Develop Mines la Elk Creek
District, Finds nich
Velna of Ore. j
GALENA. 8. D.. May 17.-(Speclal.) The
astern syndicate which has purchased the
property of the old Union Hill will begin
work upon the (round by the 10th of June.
It being expected that by that date all
the details of organisation will have been
perfected and tne company ready for busi
ness. The first work will be devoted to
opening up the Union Hill claim. In which
has been exposed a forty-foot vertical of
free mining and cyanldlng ore. This or
body has been opened up at various levels
to a depth of $00 feet from the top of the
bill, and wherever struck has been found
to carry good values. This work was done
by former owners, but so poorly was It per
formed that a great part of It will have
to be done over again. From this vein
Bart Harris, who has had a lease on the
claim, had up until the date of the sale,
been shipping ore which went from $1 to
$20 a ton gold. This ore was taken from
tl.e surface of the ground, almost, right off
tl.e lop of the vein. The new company
wl.l make no attempt to treat the ore
mined In the mill, which Is on the ground,
until tho mine Is thoroughly opened up.
It will then give Us attention to other
claims upon which It Is known there are
good ore bodies, and they, too. will receive
the development which they deserve,
lu Elk Creek District.
LEAD. B. D., May 17. (Special.) Another
new, company has been organized to de
velop and make profitable the mines In the
L.I.;. creek district.' The new company will
be known as she "Homestake Belt" com
pany, and has been organised by Black
Hills and New Tork people, who have
purchased the property known as the Peter
McGuIre ground, consisting of 200 acres
and adjoining tho ground of the Clover
Leaf property on the south. Several strong
veins of ere have been opened up on this
property und there is every reason to be
lieve that It will prove to be as rich as
Its famous neighbor on the north after
the proper development has been given it.
Assays from these ore bodies give returns
ranging from $5.40 to $11. 36 per ton.
The first shipment of ore from the mines
of -the Hidden Fortune company to Its new
mill on Whltewood creek was made on
Wednesday ' and consisted of seventy-flve
tons. Thse shipments were Increased be
fore the week -was out and by Saturday
night the big reserve bins at the plant had
been filled up, and It was the Intention of
the company to start stamps dropping on
the ore on Monday. The mill has been
tested and Its machinery found to run
smoothly, but under the company's con
tract with the Colorado Iron works that
concern Is to operate the mill for thirty
days before its acceptance by the Hidden
Fortune people, and to correct all erro of
construction, so that It can be turned over
In good working order. The test of the
mill will be made on ore furnished bv the
company from Its mines north of Lnd, the
Denver concern doing the rest and proving
Its workmanship. It will take 200 tons of
ore a day to keep the mill supplied, and fT
several months nast the Hidden Fortune
people have been prepared to lurntsVi thtt
mount of excellent ore.
Iron Creek's fn Officers. 1
The annual ' meeting of the Iron Creek
concern was held at Terry the first of the
week and the following officers elected for
the ensuing year: W. H. Dlnney. president;
W. W. ' Quilllan. vice president; Ueorge
Hondy, ' treasurer; B. A. Coleman, secre
tary and general manager. The company
owns a group of claims on Iron creek west
of the Spesrflsh canyon on which ma
chinery will be placed and development
prosecuted. There Is on the ground a sv-enty-flve-foot
shaft, disclosing a large body
Of low grade ore, which Is considered a
good cyanldlng proposition. The work of
Inking has been carried on by the aid of a
whim, but It has been found Impossible to
keep the water out of the shaft by balling;
so a pumping and hoisting plant will be In
stalled. The shnft will be sunk to quart
lite and when that formation Is leached
drifting upon it will begin.
It is said that a "lg deal Is pending for
ground on Iron creek. The ground In
cluded 'In the deal are the rlnlms of tha
Magnet and American Mining companies,
and 100 feet of the surface of the Eleventh
Hour group.. AU of the ground In the deal
has been explored on the upper contacts
and large bodies of a low grade cyanldlng
ore disclosed. The ground Is being pur
chased for a syndicate of eastern capital
ists. The Deer Lick Mining company Is
making arrangements to sink to qu.irtxlte
nd work will begin shortly. A great deal
of work has been done on this ground along
the upper ore contact and several large
hoots of ore disclosed, but It is a low
grade proposition, so the company has de
elded to explore the lower contact, where
the ore Is known to be richer.
Horseihoe'a Cyanide Plant.
It is announced that the new cyanide
plant of the Horseshoe company at the
Mogul shaft at Terry will be in running
order and treating ore shortly after July 1.
The plant will have a dally capacity of
SCO tons, and will employ the wet crushing
process In the treatment of ore. The com
pany Is still shipping ore from the Lucille
nd Ben Hur mines to a Denver smelter.
E. M. Holbrook will assume the duties
of general manager of the company on
June 1, . succeeding W. L. McLaughlin of
tViadwood. who has held the position, his
appointment being temporary, since April
i. It Is very probable thst the company'
smelter at Rapid City will be started up
some time during the summer cn ore from
the company's mines and the .shipments
to eastern smelters discontinued.
Water Bothers Victoria.
The Victoria Mining company Is working
large force of men on Its property on the
divide between 8pearf1sh and Squaw creeks
nd the development has opened up one of
fines, shoot, of .llk-lou. ore In the
district. Prospering ha. proved that the
hoot extends entirely through the com
pany's property, and It haa been crosscut
for distance of too feet and Its width re
mains undetermined. This ore shoot is on
the upper contact, and where opened la
from eight to twelve feet thick and carries
values ranging from $5 60 to $11 a ton. This
shoot Is on the, upper contact, but work is
being done to reach' the lower quartzlte
contact and. a shaft Is being sunk on the
south end of the ground.- Work In this
haft haa had to be abandoned temporarily
on account of the large amount of water
coming Into It, and which cannot be
handled with the appliances now on the
ground, but will be returned as soon as
drier weather comes. The company, which
Is composed of Omaha people, owns thir
teen patented claims In one group, and Its
property is looked on as one of the best
propositions in the district. Work on the
Cleopatra, which adjoins the Victoria oq
Bquaw creek, will be resumed on the 900
foot level, and drifting continued with the
saltitsnce of power drills. It Is said that
the company has struck a good body of
cyanldlng ore on the quarlslte and will
push Its development. The Cleopatra is
equipped with on of tha beat cyanldlng
plants In the Hills, snd will be ready to
trent ore Just as soon as the work will
warrant It. The little Bud Is another
group of claims In this district which has
good ore on It, and on which development
work Is progressing to good advantage.
They have struck some very high grade
ore on the property and have shipped
little from the ground nt a good profit.
Holy Terror Mill starts '.
KKYSTONE, 8. D., May 17.- Special.)
The mill of the Holy Terror Mining com
pany has again been placed In commission
sfter an Idleness of five months. The plant
was started last Saturday and the entire
twenty stamps of the mill are dropping on
ore taken from the 1.000-foot level of the
mine. During the time the mill has been
Idle the company has done great deal of
exploration on the lower levels. 'A drift
has been driven Into the Keystone vein,
revealing body of ore fifty feet wide at
that depth, carrying fair values In gold
snd. handled economically, will give
good profit to treat Explorations are be
ing continued In both the Holy Terror and
Keystone ml ties with gratifying results.
There Is a great deal of water coming Into
the workings, the pumps lifting 700 gallons
a minute. President Hughes, under whose
direction the work on the property la be
ing done, says that the concentrates at
the Keystone mill are worth $100 a ton.
These are being dried and sacked and
will be shipped to a smelting plant for
treatment. The last shipment of these con
centrates' was treated at the Horseshoe
smelter at Rapid City, which gave the best
satisfaction In treatment of 'any plant
Clara Belle's New Machinery.
CfSTER CITT. 8. D., May 17. (Special.)
The new machinery at the Clara Belle
has all been placed In' position and aome
rich ore is being taken from the workings.
The mill will be started In a few days,
when it la expected that the property will
become one of the best producers In the
Development work on the Gold Standard
group continues under the ' direction of
Superintendent Phillips, with good results.
The main working short has reached ' a
depth of elghty-nve feet on the ledge, and
at that depth the ore carries good values,
while the vein promises to grow stronger
and better with more work.
The London and Dakota company, which
owns a large acreage of mineral land in
the Penobscot district, eight miles north
west of Custer City, has about 'completed
arrangements to put a large force of min
ers at work opening up the preporty. In
cluded In the group owned by the company
the several claims of known richness, and
development work on their has proven that
they are good propositions. Considerable
work is being done In the Penobscot dis
trict this spring, find some of the proper
ties upon which It Is being done are show
ing up fine. This Js true with regard, to
the Blue Bird and adjoining mines, on
which several new discoveries have been
Will Pat on Large Fore.
The Interstate Mining company will
shortly begin work on the new strike made
upon Its property. Work on '.this around
had been suspended for a few months, but
when It is resumed it will be with a larger
force of miners than was before engaged.
The new strike on the property is said to
be-very rich, the ore carrying values going
up into the hundreds of dollars. The vein
Is an east and west ledge, and cuts the
rormatlon at right angles; It Is a vertical
und from three to.four and a half feet In
width. The large north and south veins
which have been opened by the former
work on the ground are' known to carry
good values, but It Is to the pew discovery
that the company will pay Its first atten
tion, and should It prove to be permanent
and Its values hold out the company will
have one of the best things In the southern
The Black Hills and Dulutli Copper Min
ing Company will resume work on Its
S.-ound next week with a large force of
miners. 'The mines 'of the company are
located twelve miles north of Custer City,
consisting of twenty-six claims, all of which
have been opened up by shafts, but to no
great depth. A number of good ore
bodies have been struck In the work al
ready done, and It Is believed that the
work which will be put on the ground this
summer will , show them to be permanent
and the ore rich. The new machinery of
the Central. Black Hills Copper company
is being Installed at a rapid rate and Oen
eral Manager Barnes expects to have the
plant running by June 1, This company
owns a large acreage of land near Custer
City and has exposed In Its workings an
immense body of low. grade copper ore, but
it occurs In such vast quantities and Is so
easy to mine, treat and handle 'that the
company cannot help but make It a paying
proposition. .. ....

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OllAHA
City Official Talks of Need of Increasing
SAYS CITY'S GROWTH NECES ITATES IT
Majority of Basinets .Men Apiiear to
He Favorable, but It Involves
V Larstr Appropriation
Than la Son Made .
"Booth Omaha needs an Increase in its
fire department,'' said a city official In
talking to a Bee reporter last night. "For
years the city managed to get along with
two hose companies. Now It has three
and another company Is badly needed. The
fapld growth of. the city and the way ad
ditions are being platted and small homes
erected makes it imperative that at leant
one more hose company be placed in serv
ice." The majority of business men appear to
favor an Increase In the fire fighting ap
paratus, but this cannot be made on the
allotment of $13,000 a year for maintenance.
It Is tnought that the fire department
should be allowed fully as much as the
police department, which is $18,000 a year,
less of course the usual 10 per cent re
serve. With an Income of $18,000 the Fire
and Police Board could Install another hose
company to be plr.ced where It would be
of the most set vice. There Is also n de
mund for a hook snd ladder truck and n
steam fire engine. A good truck can be
bought for about $2,000, while a first-class
steamer costs about $.1,500. There Is no
money In tho fire fund now to pay salaries,
let aione buying new apparatus and hose.
"It is too bad." said an N street prop
erty owner last night, "that when the bond
proposition was submitted that provision
was not msde for an lnrrease In the tire
department. The sum of $10,000 ciin be well
expended in increasing the efficiency of
the department. Then the chances are
that Insursnce rates would be lowered.
Of course the' packers want to see the
service Improved and have signified a will
ingness to assist when the city shows an
Inclination to get busy and do something.
The entire system of alarm boxes need
overhauling and additional boxes are
needed, but nothing can be done as long
aa there Is an overlap In the fire fund each
Good Police Discipline.
The police force appears to be working
nicely under Chief Brlggs. Good order Is
being maintained In all parts of the city.
Last Saturday night only one arrest was
made and that was a ease of plain drunk.
As a general thing Saturday nights are
pretty lively in South Omaha, but now
the streets are quiet at night. All saloons
close promptly at midnight and public
dances also are required to stop at that
hour. It Is understood that on Tuesday
evening the Fire and Police Board will di
rect the chief to cause all slot machines
to be removed. All the gambling houses
are closed and some of the proprietors of
places are figuring on taking an extendod
summer vacation. No arrests were made
Mayor Koutsky has his proclamation pre
pared for the calling of a special election
on June 23 for the purpose of voting on the
question of Increasing the bonded debt of
the city. This proclamation will be Issued
today. In most Instances the voting places
will be the same as last fall. The high
school bonds will be voted on by the people
at the same, time as the city bond issue,
and the school district will bear Its portion
of the expense of the election. As a gen
eral thing the people seem to favor the
bonds, but there is some opposition from
persons who wanted to Include a sum for
the purchase of psrks In the general prop
osltton. City officials feel that the taking
up of the overlap and the extension of tho
sewer system and the building of suit
able city hall are more Important Just now
than the purchase of grounds for parks,
