## 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. The North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTANA, JANUARY 37, 1903. No. 45 MP( OF . GLOB CHANCES All the Rich Mineral Deposits Not Yet Discovered. The North Moccasins a Promising Field for theProspector and Capitalist—Rieh Veins. \There are just as good opportunities in Montana today for the discovery of rich deposits of gold as ever before,\ pertinently remarks the Helena Record, in an article calling attention to the mineral resources of this state. Con- tinuing, it said: \In fact theopportuni- ties for wealth are better. Low grade ores which a few years ago were not considered worth working are now a source of large profit, owing to improved and cheaper methods of reducing and working. The state is full of undevel- oped wealth, and it' does s not cost a for- tune to discover or develop them. \While our people have many of them turned their attention to Alaska and other faroff fields, the people of ed- jacent states have made fortunes in Mon- tana by investing in and developing properties that were given the go-by by our own people. There are numerous instances or this, arid it is knows *id Spokane investors have made fortunes in Montana properties that should have been developed by our own people. '\I'd the man who wants to discover a prospect that will make a mine or wants to purchase a mine -which can be de- veloped to greater and More profitable production, Monrana offers more and better opportunities than any similar area on the continent, and this fact should be considered by Montanians and others who are desirous of milking a for - BUMS in mines. It is not necesdary to risk fortune and life in Maas.liiiWiiriny _ opportunities in Mon-. tana.\ If the Record had cored to particular- ize•it might have singled out Fergus county as an unusually good field in which to prospect for the yellow metal. Right here in the North Moccasin moun- tains there is a wide area of ground that lies practically unexplored. It is only half a dozen years ago that old residents were wont to come up from the Jaclith' barrio inte`the North Moccasins for dui -- bet. They moved around in the easily accessible localities for their stove wood, fence poles and heavier timber. In the progress of this work they time and again walked over the grzateet deposits of gold ore that have yet been found in Montana. These deposits, too, lay prac- tically on the surfers's). r Yet the men from the basin, and ninny others who had tramped over the ground, did not realize they were eralking on untold wealth. A little later the prospector came along, and in his search for gold - bearing rock, found the great cyanide ore deposits that are destined to make the county famous all over the country. And there are people now doing just what the ranchers from the Judith did— walking over ground that hides veritable storehouses of riches; for these moun- tains contain other gold deposits than thoselocated in the limited area of the Kendall and Barnes-King properties. It requites no spirit of prophesy to deter- mhie that the time is not far distant n when ground now unknown and unrec- nized, Will be the scene of the most in- formation, the surface indications, and II DER INYRYING tense mining activity. The geological the very natute of things, point to the central - fact. that miuing in the North MoCcasine is. but in the first stage Of growth. To the practical student of the rocks the situation here is most inter- esting and full of intricate problems. There are many features that attract the attention of the geologist. and practical miner. Great as is the area in which may be Mond ores that yield their gold by the cyanide, process, there are yet other fields that carry veins of gold and copper and silver. Here and there some of these veins have been scratched over and prospected superficiality. In many instances these veins give evidence .of increasing in size at depth, with 'their ore becoming more valuable as they penetrate the earth. As time passes these mountains a ill be systematically prospected and t he ore bpdies thoroughly exploited. It is only necessary to note what the work that is now being done is yielding to make a safe prediction as to whatalie_future will present. TOO MUCH WALKING. , Sam Phillips Objects to Superflou• 4, Strenuosity. County Commissioner Sam Phillips was in Helena last week attending a meeting of the various boards of county commissiopers. Every member present had something to offer in the way of suggestions as to new laws that would likely be of benefit to the people. Some one made a suggestion, however, that bratight Mr. Phillips to his feet., and it proteet from his lips. The incident is referred to by the Record In the follow- ing terms: \jr. Phillips has been •a county anm. missioner of Fergus county five years: He is therefore well informed as to the needs of that section. There are about 2000 miles of county road in Fergus county. At the meeting of commission- ers yesterday some one offered a section to the road law providing that all the county commissioners visit every por- tion of the county roads at least once a year. \Why that hi - absurd,\ said Mr. Phil- lips. \Here ace have 2000 miles oh road in our County siiid - -how \do you expect a man is going over' all that. Why it would keep us traveling all the time. If any such section as that were enacted Into a road law I would resign right speriso Song Service. . The public iscordially invited to attend a special song service next Sunday even- ing at 7:30 o'c!ock, in the hank build- iter. The ladies of - Kendall have pre- pared something extra in the way of music. Do not fail to attend. John R. Cook left yesterday for Sjice kane. From there he will go east on business connected with his milling in- terests here. Before leaving Mr. Cook expressed the opinion that the \big deal\ was as good as closed, and added: \I expect there will be some mighty in- teresting times here very shortly, and I wont to be back inside of thirty days.\ Kelly at Moulton, Lewistown, pay cash for bounty claims. The people of Kendall never bore so great an air of confidence as now. They see for the future an era of unparal- leled prosperity. Weaver and Riser are haying the ground under their building removed preparatory to lowering the building to the 'street level. Other improvements are planned, to meet the general demand of business. Fatal kidney and bladder troubles can always be prevented by the use of Foley's Kidney Cure. L. C. Wilson, agent. Harry Smith has disposed of his inter- est in the Home Bakety tolaim Reed, and will engage in other business. Mrs. Win. Shaules has returned to Kendall, after a long sojourn in Lewis- town. E. R. Cleveland returned to camp last week. OPEN FOR BUSINESS. 'flue New hold t emplet r ed—A Haudonore Structure welt lircirnished. The new Similes hotel, a Inin-la has i just been completed at a cost of $12,000, Three Big Properties Said o Have was opened to the public yesterday. • It is under the inaoligetnent of Carl Gnu • weld, an etperienced caterer, who liaa leaped the pieunises for three years. While Mr. timiwahl has charge of the hotel, C. M. Nefeoin will have charge Been Sold. It Will be the Greatest Minint Transaction in Years --Kendal District Will Profit by It. • Tha big mining deal, involving the purchase Of the .Kenalall, the Barnes - King, and the Wright properties, is as good as closed. This is the trews that comes from Spokane, and it is said to be ant hectic. As is %veil -known, the men negotiat- ing for thins matnificent bonanza include Messina. Gates nod Drake of Chicago, and the eastenn stockholders in the Kendall company. It is•nnnounced that the de- tails of the deal have all troan made and the Caleb conaideration is in bank ready to be paid over.. What the actual a urrhape price is hae not gone beyond the kirowledge of the promoters toad their clients; bnt it in- volves more money than has hi, eo paid for any mining pioperty in the past ten years. Many millions are in and when the transfer takes place the annotince- ment will startle the whole nuiiiinug world and cause comment in financial i ca wi eiZz. The name of Kendall will be- - mibue- everywher'e, Ail fire at- tentioh of all classes of mining mon and promoters will be ditected this way. ft. trill take at least ten million atonal s to teit through this deal. The Kendall mine has at least$4,000,000 worth of ore , in eight; that Means the pnaperty can not be touched for less than five or six millione. The Barnes -King mines are showing up better than ever before, And are not likely to go into the pool for less tiban $2,500,000. Then comes the initer , veniver property, and the rake-off for the promoters. .Altogether it is a s:upend- onsaranenction, even in this day of gi- gantic financial negotiations. What will be the effecter, this cede on the Kendall district? It will completely revol ntioniee-- Theoniniug. indus- try will leap forward and business gen- erally will expand with wonderful celer- ity.
