What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Colline are the incorporators of a company to be known as the United States Mining Company, organized for the purpose of operating ou properties in Lump gulch and vicinity. The com- pany will put $150,000 into development work, and will commence operations at once, we understand. The articles of incorporation state that the purposes for which the company is formed is the carrying on of the busi- ness of mining, purchasing, holding, leasing, working and developing mines . and mining claims, buying and selling, milling and smelting ores and minerals, building flumes and running tunnels, purchasing, holding, developing, build- ing, using and selling water, water power and water rights, mills and smelters and sites and lands necessary therefor, or for any of the above mentioned purposes; building roads and tramways, and doing and carrying on any other business inci- dental to the above stated objects. The capital stock of the company is stated at $54)0,000, divided into 500,(()0 shares of the par value of one dollar per share. The term of the existence of the company is stated at 40 years. The chief office and principal place of business will be at Lump City. Montana. The stock of the company is assessable. The company will start work at once on the Florence, Euldison, McFarlane and the Mollie S Ali promising pros- pects, and containing within their eighty acres of mineral land what it is thought will prove valuable deposits of ore, mak- ing a nucleus upon which the company will climb to thineralogioal greatness. * * * THE HOPE. The Hope people commenced work cut- ting a station at the 300 -foot level last Monday preparatory to drifting both east and west on the vein, which shows strong and wide, with plenty of quartz, though still a little soft. The stations were finished Wednesday and irifting both ways commencee, which at this writing has advanced a little better than ten feet. Thursday morn ing last two ore sorters were put at work and a wagon load of ore Barks were hauled up to the mine, and if the present chute of ore holds out next week will probably see the first shipment of ore from the Hope. The work _Quit has been done on this property is of the kind that goes to make • mine. There has been no cessation of hostilities there since the word was first given to attack the vein, and if th• mine gives up its first ce lati of ore nex t week it will do so after 200 feet of sink- ing, 20 feet of drifting and what little stoping may be done in these short drifts, and all within a period of about two months. We do not believe there is an o th er m ina in Montana that can equal that record. * • THE MOUNTAIN CHIMP. I inns east and we..') nt a depth i of 85 feet have been started, the east one 40 feet and the west one 30 feet in length, with some good ore in Is,t h drifts. It is the intention to go on with the shaft in a short time. Four men are working the property. * BABY 11 FLEA. The Baby Helen shaft ham reached a depth of 12I1 feet and the quartz reining out of it indicates the great worth of the property, sprinkled as it is with brittle silver, bromitlea anil i•latoridee the other ides that arcuompaey way up ore. The 'Baby Helen will be elaseed among the shipping nunae of this dis- trict before the snow flies again, unlefia all signs fail. Work is steadily progrese- ing there, though elowly. If tire right •kinil ef snap wee innugur•ted on the Liverepool hill there would be five mines sending ore down the guiolt from that locality *lone and 300 or 4111 Mon employed there If Lump Gulch HU liwiLed as near Putto as it is Helens thiegn would lone here; but th\ day will come when they will buzz. anyway, eetwithatanding it. lunation within the shadow of the vapitallof the eat* nurri.E KATIE. There steentri to be trouble ahead for the Little Katie owners, if all reports are true, though it is to be hoped that a sur- vey will establish the fact that the ore chute now being worked and discovered by the Latsch Bros. will prove to be on the Little Katie ground. It is, however, claimed to be off the Katy ground, and has been located by parties from Helena, whose naines we were unable to learn. .Froin the bottom of the 45 -foot shaft a drift is being run east on the vein, now in ribout twenty -tive feet, the vein mat- ter being 34 feet wide, containing an 8 - inch streak of fine ore averaging about 150 ounces to the ton. The Latech Bros. are working night and day, taking out ore right along, and it will be unfortu- nate if they are compelled to give up their property through some error in location. THE LITTLE ALMA. Men are drifting both ways from the 300 foot station, and while they are taking out good ore it is not as plentiful as they have a right to expect it would be from the indications that were un- earthed in the shaft. The ore is very high grade, however. Two Burleigh drills are used in the drifts and progress is therefore rapid. TII COINAGE. Twelve men are working at the Free Coinage. They are drifting anui stoping east on the 200, where they have an ore streak of very high grade ore which varies from six to twelve inches in width. A shipment of ore is about ready and will be [rent down some time during the coming week. * • * 6 ' THE LITTLE NELL. Drifting and stoping is in progress on the 350 -foot level and aleo on the 250 - foot. Both levels are furnishing ore in considerable quantities. Thirty-three men are employed at the mine and 80 tons or four car loads of high grade ore has been sent from this property to the East Helena Smelter during the month of June, notwithstanding the fact that considerable dead work was also accom plishod. Mr. W. II. Chinholni has re• signed as foreman at this mine, and Mr. Price of helena appointed in his place. Mr. Chisholm will engage in opening moms property here on his own account, we understand, and during the past week has examined several prospects with that end in view. * MINING NOTES. Dave Ruth, of Helena, is working the J. L. Fisher lode, located between this city and the Kennedy group of mines. The prospect is down 45 feet, incline, and shows fair at that depth. The \G. B. Q.\ is an extension of the Little Katie and is a good looking pros- pect with a hole on it 35 feet deep, a vein 18 inches wide, 3 inches of good quartz and gives every indication of im- proving with depth. The location is in good company. Jim Woodruff and Mrs. Nottingham have sold their Benner Creek placer diggings, located above Rimini, and just below the Peerless .lennie mine, to State Auditor Cook for $10,000. The transfer was made Monday of this week. Joe Luttrell, an old time mining man well-known to all those miners who ever mined in the vicinity of Red Mountain, and who last year disoovered a gold lode somewhere near the old Summit homey on Monitor guleh has just die poeed of it to Butte parties for $40,000 clash. We were unable to learn the narnee of those puruiliaaing, but we are in- formed that they will at once proceed to erect a ten stamp will on the property and work it on a large 66 , Ale Thaiiin is in the immediate vicinity of th. Josephine, a mine that has yielded con- siderable of the yellow metal in years past. May ir Hale, postmeinter of Minneapolis, Minneeuita, was in the city the past week bsuliing after him mining interests in this ii•inity and in the Red Mountain coun- try where he ‚wna the A then\ and Cot. - int h loulee, and together with Thienam O. M•rrill the Lea, ette and other ruining property up ‚Vertu Sprinfre creek, above Alhambra. Major Hale is of the firm opinion that within the next five iiare the country will be in a more prosperous condition than ever befere, that silver will be restored tu all the rightg belt mg- ing it under thus ronstittit ion, ani I t hat all A meriran industriee will be running full force and tiouriehing.

Darling and Kent are shipping a carload of ore from the Stanton and the Eureka Mining Company are mak- ing a test shipment of second class ore from the old dumps of the Eureka mine, to determine whether or not it will pay to concentrate. If it is successful the probabilities are that some 2,000 tons or more will be shipped. In the palmy days of the Eureka, when silver was worth about *1.10 an ounce, the company re- tuned to test the second class output of the mine through fear of its not paying, and if it would'ut pay then it is pretty safe to say that it will not do so now, though it is to be hoped that the experi- ment may prove successful. The Stan- ton and the Eureka furnish about the only signs of life in the entire district. There are 'several placer outfits work- ing above in the gulch, every one of whom are making fair money. It is said that there is considerable coarse gold in this gulch. Two colored men own a placer claim about six miles above the city which is said to 4 tine property. Work on the Poorman gold mines, at Silver City, Idaho, has been taken up energetically and systematically by the new company. The upper or ()so tun- nel is continued at the rate of about 20 feet per week, and seems to 'MVO now passed beyond the old stopes and work- ings. It shows about 3 feet of ore with occasional patches of richer ore. A raise is about to be eommeneed on this ore body. Th(, raises and winzes on the Empire vein have developed an ore body of between $15 and $20 ore. • q throttle \ Hard Times. Some weeks ago it was stated in this column that it was no longer faehionatile Lo talk of \hard times\ in the East. It is largely a habit, this talk of \hard times\ a habit that is chronic with alany. Times are always \hard\ with some people, despite any amount of money they may be making. In the industrial world an increased volume of business East and West is manifest, and increased wages by many leading firms is notable. To date 247 companies, firms and in- dividual employers have announced se increase in wages from five to twenty per cent. In all but two of the 247 the inerease was niaile voluntarily. The 247 noted are nearly all iron and steel W' rkers, giving employ nient to nearly 200,000 men and boys. Doubtlese sta- tistics in other lines of trade and man- ufacture would exhibit equally gratify- ing results. The case of the Carnegie Steel Co. is illustrative of the.improved condition of affairs. The 15,000 em- ployes ot this eonipany, At its several plants at lloinestead, liraddook and Pittsbu rg, Penn were working under contracts by which their wages were fixed for the year 1896. The company informed them May 14th that \notwith standing the existing contracts\ it had \docided that the present business out look will justify higher wages,\ which were accordingly advents's] tee p e r 4,eut, beginning last Monday. The firm of MO Laughlin, of the American Iron Works at Pittsburg, voluntarily inoreamed the wages of fo00 men, and the Coneolidated Steel and Wire Co., of Chicago, did t he Rani,. in t heir five mills ninar Chicago.
