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.

KENDALL CHRONICLE. 1 he North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTANA, SEPTEMBER 30, 1902. No. 28. 811 MILLIONS IN SIGHT The Kendall Mine Has That Much to Show. Many Improvements in Progress—. What the Barnes -King is Doing This Fall. Everything about the Kendall mine and mill is now menial: like clockwork and the owners of the property are talking out a small fortune every day. Over 75 men are on tne pay roll at the present time, and this force will be materially increase,' before many days go Mitch work is to be done on the water piiw line from Warm Spring creek to the mill, to insure the safety of the pipe from fieezing up during the winter months. \The wool pipe has been strengthened in places where it was weak, and two blow off valves have been placed in the pipe u here the pressure was strong-st ; the purpose of these valves is to allow air to escape from the pipe. thus redwing the pressure greatly. Some improvements will be made about the property during October, and by the tine- eol t i weat,lier sets in every- I thing will be in sham; to keep the , ottill m a k e running to its full captivity all winter, i amid there will he tin Shot downs because of wet ore or pipes freezing ep.

There is in sight at the present time 750.0(X) tons of ore, none of which runs less than $7.00 per ton, aunt ft om the lower levels the ore rues op to $15.00 per toe. A very conservative estimate would place the valet. of theore in sight'. at $6,000,000. One solitary miner will blast out hundreds of tons daily. It costs only 25e per ten to mine the ore anti the milling expenses arty \ 45r ter tot), making the total cost of mining and treating the ore (rely 70e per ton. This enormously rich mine was sold ess than three years ago to Harry T. Kendall, who is at present a part owner, tot $500. C. D. Allen, now foreman. in the mine, was then owner of the property and made the sale to Mr. Kenilall. It is needless to say that Mr. Allen had no idea of the great possibilities ot the iii iii' when he sold it for $500. The Borneo -King Mill. The addition to the Barties•King mill is completed and the new woest pipe will all be laid in a week. It is 2% inch pipe anti will carry an ample supply of water for the increased requirements. Three new tanks have been tout in which will increase the capacity el the mill to 225 tons a day. 'jiie mill will then work two shifts in place of one as it is now doing; the extra shift will mean a large increase in the pay roll. A new 75 horse potter boiler will he in ph ye before another week goes by, and enough steam will be supplied It. the additional boiler for heating purposes as well as help supply steam ;or the engine: 'Hie track front the mine to the mill i,i in perfect shape awl two new ore ears have aytived and will be pot into Nervier to handle the greatur output of me.

A. Allen of Billings, In an interview at Helena last week. Dr. Allen is one of Montana's oldest settlers, and has examined widely in- to the mining districts of tne state. At present ne has taken large inter- ests in Ruby Gulch district, \simply ter:luso,' he states, \it looks like a section of money producing proper- ties. \We got 40 cents at the surface,\ said Dr. Allen, \and before we were seventy feet down on a string of seven claims near Ruby Gulch, we got assays of $4.20. We have three distinct leads—silver, lead and free - milling gold. We have had abundant opportunity to sell or to bond the property, but, being positive of the district's richness, we have not cared to do either. We are going ahead with the work, and are going on to Put a larger force at the mines next season. - And this is the state of affairs in the entire district. The mines are working, and looking toward increased work in the spring. A new mitt is to go up on the King -Barnes properties as soon as winter is over. I saw $18,- 000 in the possession of Mr. King of this company a short time ago, which was taken from his mine. \In addition to the mill which is going up on this property, several others are to be erected in the spring, and I know that this district is going to be the scene of some of the most active work, in all stages from devel- opment to getting results from the working mines, which is going on in the state.\ Speaking of placers the doctor said: \In the gulch below our properties we wt•sh out placer gold each year. And, after seemingly exhausting the stream bed, we can come hack the next sea- son and find new dust and nuggets, showing that these placers derive their gold from adjacent ledges.\ WILL DEVELOP PROPER' I AUTOMOBILE A FAILURE.
