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.

One of the most important mining enterprises that has ever been origi- nated in the west is . now under way in Butte, and from present indica- tions, says the Miner, it is likely to be brought to a successful termina- tion. The enterprise is nothing more nor less than the exploration on an extensive scale of the various mineral veins that underlie the city. The idea of mining the ore bodies of Butte in the manner to be described first originated with W. J. ,Hutchins, an old California. Nevada and Mon- tana miller. about a year ago, when the gentleman, with a partner, bonded several claims just east of Main street and announced his intention of sink- ing a shaft to a depth of 500 feet be- low the city and then driving a (goss- cut 2,600 feet north to intersect the numerous veins running parallel with each other east and we ,t. For various reasons, the principal one of which was a desire of the partner to take in a third party who would put up his (the partner's) por- tion of the cash, which was objected to by Mr. Hutchins, the scheme fell through. A short time ago it was taken up by E. II. Irvine and W. H. Young, of the real estate firm of Irvine, Young a; Co.

Chilians Attack Sailors from the American Cruiser Baltimore --Mrs. Thurman Dead. tteneral Miles Reports on the Indian Question—Grand World's Fair Tower—Sorkless Jerry. A dispatch of the 17th from Santi- ago says: The anti-American feel- ing, which is very pronounced, reached a climax in the streets of Valparaiso. A number of sailors from the United States Steamship Baltimore were walking along the street when they were confronted by some sailors of a Chilian man-of-war. . Some words passed, when a fierce fight followed. Knives and pistols were freely used during the squabble. When the combatants were separated by the police and bystanders it was found that four of the Baltimore's sailors were killed and five others seriously wounded. Several Chilian sailors were also badly hurt. This was the first time the Baltimore's sailors had been ashore for a month. The in- tendente of the city had assured Captain Schley that his sailors would be perfectly safe on Chilian soil. The feeling between Americans and Chili- aus is very strong. Several additional fights occurred to -day among sailors, but they were not as serious as yes- terday's battle. The dead sailors of the Baltimore will be buried to -mor- row. An armed force will be landed from the Baltimore to furnish a mili tary guard. MN. Allen 0. Thurman died on the 17th at (\ohm& ts, 0. For three days she had been in tel unconscious con- dition.

There are to be three landings, the first, 200 feet from the ground, will accommodate at one time on the colonnade four or five thousand people. Inside the colon- nade is a space sufficient to build four hotels or restaurants, besides numer- ous booths for the sale of different articles. The second landing is de- signed as a grand promenade in the daytime and a dancing hall in the evening, and will accommodate 5,000 people. The upper landing is 1,000 feet from the groand and will aecom- 'imitate from twelve to fifteen hun- dred people, and above this there will be offices for the signal service, scien- tific investigation, etc. Above this is to be a circular electric railway carry- ing eleetric lights at night and signals by day. Above this will be a light- house to iw provided with the most powerful reflector ever constructed, surmounted by a flag staff. Congressman Jerry Simpson, says a Cleveland dispatch, came here last Saturday and talked to about three hundred people in the public square. Ho scored the millio-aires and mon- opolists unmercifully and said ugly things about everybody who had ac- cumulated money. When he had concluded his speech Congressman Toni Johnson, a rich democrat, car- ried Simpson off to the cafe, where they sat down with L. A. Russell and S. D. Dodge, both democratic lawyers and wealthy 111(41, to a champagne supper. When the people's party committee heard of the wine supper they were angry.

General Miles reviews at length the Indian outbreak of last winter, attributing it largely, as he (lid at the time, to the failure of crops and the failure of the gov- ernment to properly perform its obli- gations in regard to rations, etc. Of the messiah craze he says the fanati- cism and superstition of the people were taken advantage of by the lead- ers to encourage them to hostilities. He commends the administration of Captain Penney as acting agent at Pine Ridge and says that through additional appropriations the Indians now receive nearly half as much more than they (lid a year ago. How- ever, the fires of discord still remain. Commanders have discovered that communications are going on between different camps, inciting Indians to hostility, and even now a delegation from the Indian territory is absent ostensibly to visit friends in Wyom- ing. They have in fact gone across the mountains and are now in the abodes of the supporters of the mee- siah delusion near Pyramid lake, in Nevada. Even while the hostages were held at Fort Sheridan last spring they received a communication from a friend in the Sioux camps saying they had not given up the idea of a grand Indian Uprising and that the Utes were ready to join the Sioux whenever the latter were ready to re- sume hostilities.

The stars and stripes, it is decided, are to wave 1,120 feet above the ground during the World's fair from an American tower that will outdo the Eiffel at Paris. The builder is to be Andrew Carnegie, of Pittsburg. Over 25,000 people will be accommo- dated in the tower at one time, and two of the many elevators are to start from the ground and run more than 1,000 feet up without change or stop directly to the lookout lauding. The width of the tower at the foun- dation level is 440 feet in each direc- tion. The Keystone Bridge company, of Pittsburg, one of Carnegie's con- cerns, has agreed to con truct the metal portion of the tower and have ij completed February 1. 1S93. The ...aril.

About 100 feet north of the savings bank another large vein was discov- ered by workmen_ engaged in exca- that vating for the M. & M. building, samples of which assayed from 22 to 130 ounces per ton in silver. This is merely an illustration of the Close- ness, size and richness of the ore . bodies that the cross -cuts from the proposed shaft must pass through. It is estimated that there are at least twelve of these veins between the point where the shaft is to be sunk and the north line of the property, and the men who are figuring on tapping them in the manner stated will not only be benefitting thous- ands by so doing, but will also be demonstrating that the ore bodies of Butte are more numerous, more pro- ductive and more lasting than those of any other mining camp on the face of the earth. these statistics of mortgage indebted- ness and will take another half mill- ion to finish it. .1. E. Lewis Married. Thursday last John E. Lewis and Miss Olive Senn= were married at Missoula, Judge Logan performing the ceremony. Miss Sellman recent- ly arrived from Iowa.

The boys turned out and made their welcome rather Uproarious by the revival of ancient barbarism known as the charivari, but the weleozne was thor- oughly understood and taken in the cordial spirit in whieh it was tendered. Friday evening a reception was tendered Mr. and Mrs. Lewis at the Columbia hotel. All the young peo- ple turned out and a most enjoyable time was the result. The dining room was thrown open and to splen- did music the dancing was kept up till midnight. Mrs. Lewis was most heartily welcomed to her new home.

A dispatch from Hon Kow, China, tolls the following story: The steam- er Paohua arrived here with 'cluing refugees, twenty in all. They had lost everything except the clothes they wore at the beginning of the out- break. Several bore marks of vio- lence. The riot took place at broad noonday without warning or provoca- tion. It was carried out by a hand- ful of men c•vidently acting under orders in the presence of a number of Chinese officials who knew every one of the rioters. Their mission of destruction was carried out with the utmost speed. A crowd had collected, and suddenly a rush was made for a home. belong- ing to the American Episcopal Mis- sion. The gate was smashed. in. and a man heading the crowd cried, \Slay the foreigners.\ The rioters came ill with a rush, and ono aimed a murder- ous blow with a shackle at Mr. Sower - by. Mr. Sowerby disarmed this as- sailant, avoided another and ran for his life, reaching the consulate, front where he Wati transferred to the Pao - hut. The American Mission house was set on fire, and the Yamen and soldiers fell back, neither civil nor military mandarins making an effort to proteet the property. The Boman Catholic convent was next fired and the Sisters, seven in number, barely escaped to the river, where they were thrown headlong down the sleep bank by t!oldiers. They were 1,11:en in a boat on board the Paohua, and WOre stoned by the mob on shore. Several Sisters were badly injured by the missiles. It is thought a number of children in the convent were letrinal to death, A mob armed with knivoa and axes rushed to the consulate, butt did not attack it.
