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.

The 350 -ton cyanide mill of the Ken- dall company is now in operation. The inauguration of this eitteriiilie marks an importer'', epoch in the history re the district. ; • On Weinesday afternoon part of the mill madhinery.w:arievut in Motion, and the initSst. move proved quite satisfac- tory.

It inclades IKbweae. • Nil electrical and pumping machinery installed on Warm Spring creek, six . tildes from the mine, a pipeline to con- duct the water to the mill, and a cyan- ide mill of 350 -tons daily capacity,19- gether with a commodious reineryom assay office, bidler• roma for laralehine riteam heat, business office and other , necessary features. The main mill build- ing is 180x55 feet. Here are installed the rock crushers, a dozen leaching tanks • each of 150 tons capacity, sump tanks, lId tanks and all the necessary [Decide - for extracting ore by the cyanide Process. The mill contains the latest devised machinery for economically working the oft, along -with labor saving devices, which'are so essential -in treat- ing successfully low grade ore. Some 550,000 feet of lumber were used in the construction of the mill plant, and the . machinery hauled in aggregated nearly. 900,000 pounds. The mill is all that -me- chanical skill and money could make it, and its mice's is assured. The Kendall company owns ten claims knomn as the Leaking, Klondike, Cape Notne, Quartzite, Agnes, Gulch, Midget, Hopeful, Hopeless and Millsite. On the last named claim is built the mill. A 200 -foot shaft lies been sunk on the Leaking claim, and at that depth there has been done some extensive drifting OA the ore hod).

A wend eensution has been created at the Abbey mine. On Thursday another cave was broken into and it is quite sa remerkable as the one found sonic weeks ego. The new cave extends dose some eighty-five feet, and follows the ore body.
