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.

For the _past year Tua AGE has had in its cabinet a silver • nugget - of consider- able size which „ was produced from two ounces of Sophia ore and this is an indication; of what the mine prom- ises with development. There can hardly be a donbt that a large stamp - mill will be erected ou • the property within the next year. With the coni 7 pletion of the railroad .to Elkhorn, that camp may expect a rapid devel- opment or its many rich prospects.

Loris, 8. ---=Park Mining District is looking more favorable as each 'day's development progresses. Operations have been again resumed on the Silver Wave mine, owned by Otto Albrecht and Adam Gerhauser, of Helena. Progress is rather slow at present, the hoisting from the shaft of over a hundred feet deep. having to be thine with a hand windlass, but steam hoisting apparatus will be put on in a few Weeks.' The old difficulties between the owners of the Iron -Wm& mine have been settled and operations on that property will be resumed in a few days. . Sam ; Wise.miller reported yesterday that he had encountered a body of iron pyrites several feet in thickness in crosscutting in the,. Jaudione mine. He considers it an important strike, as the iron will carry a high percent in g The Park mine is looking wonder- fullY)e wll, -there being a body of galeria four feet in thickness in the cave tunnel. In the lower tunnel which is crosscutting to drain the mine it is expected that the largo body of ore encountered in sinking the pump -shaft will be tapped in a few days. The drainage of the mine will n he necessitate t, employment of a ccinsider oable crew Of me and will furnish water for the nevi concentra- tor when completed. The 'drainage will extend to 'a depth of 360 feet. The American Rolle still improves. At a depth of fifty feet the ore bialy of carbonate and galena is four feet in thickness.

Pacific branch from Boulder to Elkhorn has been com- pleted and the engineer went to Hel- ena last week to report. It, is prob- able that grading on the line will bu - gilt the course .of two or three w The Rea Rryider, of St. Louis, says: \It is •cret that at least three, more of the great systems eon - template reiebing out for a share of the immense traffic generated in a Territory which has more acres of good farming laud than Illinois, more thither than Michigau,suore iron and coal than Pennsylvania, and precious metal sufficient to pay the national debts of the world. Coupled with this is a climate so healthful that exis- tence is a continual physical delight.\ The Deer Lodge New North -Wed last week stated that two surveying parties had in the past few months been looking for a railroad route-from Calvin to the new Oro Fino mining district but that that was not the natural outlet for the district, and that last week the Union Pacific offi- cials were examining the country be- tween Deer Lodge and Oro Fino with a view to Mating in a branch and that surveyors would he put ou the line innuediately. While not con- curring in the opinion that Calvin's is not the true outlet for the Oro Fine district, THE Aom is glad to see that the Union ;Pacific is taking steps to cross the main range, for it indicates that that road is going to Helena and going .thereby way of Boulder. The Move will also stir up the Northern Pacific and the Montana Central both to extend branches to the Oro Fino and Lowland districts before the Union Pacific can get there'' RADERSBURG RAYS. [Special Correripondence of Tug Anal , R A DERSBURO, July 12 - :•—•Tlie Fourth of July was duly celebrated here; the ball in the eVening was an immense success.

McKay sold his range cattle this week to Win. Quinn 1.`, $18 per head. Some are offering their cattle still cheaper. Scarcity of hay and no grass is the cause. It .never looked so serious for stockmen in Montana as it does to -day. Geo. Webb, our stage driver, drop- ped an envelope containing $100 on the road between Radersburg and Toston.

Toole htts a sure thing on the Demo- cratie nomination for i;overnor. Hon. Thos. II. Carter and Hon. E. D. Weed Were out from Helena last Sunday rusticating and tightening up the wires of their political fences tu some extent. The California judicial system seems to be in favor vilth the legal fraternity of Muntanaiuiuj will probe,- bly be adopted by the C,ónstitutiosual Convention. This giv a judge for each county and will dispense with the Probate Judgeship. It is quite reliably stated that a count of noses in the Constitutional Convention shows a enneideralde ma— jority of the Delegates in favor of a new election of the county officers this fall. That will make thjugs a. little lively to compensate fur the dullness resulting from the dry weath- er. •NMY - i - A.ÍNEHTISEMENTS. tedth..T...213.
