WORK STARTING UP AGAIN
AMONG HILLS MINES
Several Properties Are to Resume and
Basr Times Will Soon
DEAD WOOD, S. D., April 30.-(Special.)
Sinking will be resumed on the property
of the Golden Crest Mining company In the
Two Bit district some time this month.
The Golden Crest Is one of the oldest prop
erties In this part of the Hills that has
been considerably worked and has yielded
some good ore, the average value being
close to 100 in the old days. This was
when the property was owned and man
aged by Frltx Weber before he sold It to
the present company and was under ex
pense of mining, hauling and shipping
besides treatment at the smelters. No ore
running under $20 per ton was ' shipped
and the peculiarity of the ore wm In the
fact that It was never found In place. It
was of the slllclous nature and was taken
from the upper levels. The - presence , of
a porphry cap and a fault led to the con
clusion that the richer ore lay beneath the
quartzlte and It is with this idea that the '
sinking Is to be done below the 260-foot
level, where the present shaft stop. The
shaft Is well timbered and In good shape
for sinking and little preparatory work will
have to be done. Tbe property is owned
by R. L. Bailie and associates of Detroit,
Dr. A. T. Koos, the local chemist and as
sayer, and Guy Bunce, son of the presi
dent of the Black IIIUs Development and
Financial corporation, have established a
camp In the Carbonate camp, near here,
the soene of the rich strikes on the old
Iron Hill property made In the early days.
The dumps of this and adjoining properties
contain something between 30.000 and 40,000
ions of ore which will be run through and
extensively sampled, shipments being made
from time to time to the smelter at Denver.
The total cost of loading, shipping and
treatment is $11.60 per ton and it Is ex
pected that a fair profit can be obtained
from the ore, even at this figure. Deeds
for the adjoining properties to the company
are being made out to give a wider scope
to the activities of the assayers,
Preparations are being made by the
Lucky Strike Mining company to resume
work on Its property on Box Elder creek
southeast of here. General Manager Charles
Allen has Just returned from an eastern

he was in consultation wtlh the officers of

Overthrown with Yea-eta.
The city of St. Pierre, In Martlnque,
which only eight years ago was the p c
turesque abiding place of 40.000 people,
fast being subjugated by the tropic wilder
ness. The only inhabitants at present are
a few black people whu dwell -like ghoul
in the deserted places of the city of the
dead, on the chanoe of kelling to' the hand
ful of tourists who come their way souve
nirs of the awful havoc that wag wrought
by Mount Pelee less than a decade ago.
The vegetation Is encroaching upon th
streets that once teemed with traffic and
re-echoed the palaver and ribaldry of a
laughter-loving people. Soon the whole of
the molderlng ruin will be overgrown to
the verge of the sea. and the wt etched
sojourner eking out a living in the City
of the Dead will .be foiced to lcavj It.
Then It will have for Its most important
citizen a deadly snake, the fer da lance,
which creeps Into old houses in the West
Indies as the cobra infests the ancient
ruins of India. There Is little likelihood
that th city will ever live again, any
more than the burled cities that lie smoth

If St. Pierre had been a city of our own
country R would have been rebu-lt within
a year or two of the time of Its Incinera
