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.

MINING NEWS, an adverse claimant to prosecute his suit in the courts with reason - 01 the Cataract District sad Sarrimirmag ' Gamey. The Eva May mine is running steadily, although it is contending with very bad roads for hauling ore to the railroad, owing to the recent heavy rains, which have made them very soft. O'Neill & Largent have been dropping stamps steadily at the Boulder for several days. Mr. O'Neill told a Progress represen- tative, during a visit to the mill, Tuesday, that everything with them was turning out a great deal better than they had expected. when they took hold of the prop- erty. \Tle ore is running higher in gold and silver than we thought it would, and we are getting 26 per cent. , lead in our coacentrates, when I did not expect it to go over two per • cent,\ said Mr. O'Neill. Alex - - Giese, Of the asin and Bay State Mining company re- turned home Monday from his visit to Springfield, Massachusetts. Mr. Glass looks well and is in good spirits. He would not say any- thing at present for publication but the Progress is firmly of the opinion that the work of rebuild- ing the Katie concentrator will soon be commenced. Durham and Teflon, of Butte, won the double -hand drilling con- test at Boulder, Monday, drilling 39 inches. Beber and Dillon, of Lump, drilled 33 3-8 inches+ and took second prize. The single - hand contest was won by Beber of Lump who drilled 13 1-2 inches. Durham, of Butte, drilled 13 1-8 and Frank Wiege- stein, of Basin, drilled 9 6-8. Wiegenstein's sel was bad and he broke six which accounts for his low record. able diligence amounts to a waiver of the adverse claim and removes the stay of proceedings in the de- partment.

The big coal companies of the east a few days ago reduced the wages of their miners from 60 to 54 cents a day, and on the Fourth of July nearly 200,000 miners in Pennsylvania and Ohio walked out on a strike. Sreaking of the strike, President Blatchford, of the United Mine Workers of America, says: \The exact date of the national suspension has been a matter - of speculation with newspapers for weeks past. We are ever thank- ful for the mention this movement has received from every quarter. With the press and public it is not a question of should or should it not take place, but rather a ques- tion when shall the movement for living wages be inaugurated. In - - dependence day was chosen as a day well befitting our demand - It is the anniversary of our politic- al independence, let it (41130 mark the begisning of an era re indust- rial freedom, and as our; revolu- tionary fathers freed themselves, from foreign rule, let the miners of thirts,untry free themselves frote the domnition of their oppressors, Our present suspension is not of our choice, it is forced upon us by contintièrps reduction in wages until the point is reached where living by our industry is no longer possible. Our miners everywhere. throughout the country are ready for it as a last rei+Ort and there is no doubt that it will be the great- est move of its kind this country has ever seen. \I am not fearful that the minere will in any case violate laws. This will be a peaceful contest, violence must not enter into it in any degree. Public opinion is with us; telegrams and letters from meu. in all walks of life are pouring in, endorsing our actions. The great body of the people are on our side and we mean to retain their' sup- port by strict adherence to law and order.\ - And this is one of the resulta of promieed.\republican proseprity!'' Indeed, Boss Hanna, who is the official head of the republican party, is himself at the heed of the large coal mining companies that were among the first to reduce wages to the starvation poLit of 54 cents a day.
