THE DALLES, OREGON. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12, 1899
Concerning the Wonders, of Halo's
Famous Gold Belt
John H. Garretr, Secretary of the Com
pany, in The Dalles and Will Give
Information Concerning It, and
Receive Subscription for Shares.
Mr. John H. Garrett arrived last even
ing from Portland, and is registered at
the Umatilla House.
Mr. Garrett is secretary of the
Syndicate Gold Mining Company of
Spokane, Wash. This company owns
ten fall claims in the center of Idaho's
famous gold bell.
These claims are located on Burnt
Creek near the North Fork of Clear
water River, Shoshone county.
.The property is developed to the ex
tent of six hnndred feet of tunnel,
A ten stamp mill will be erected im
mediately, and nothing will be spared
to make this property a dividend payer
at the earliest possible moment. The
company is composed of some of the
most prominent citizens of the North
west. ' Among them being Dr. N. Fred
Essig, president Big Bend National
Bank, Spokane, Wash. ; C. C. May,
cashier Big Bend National Bank, Daven
port, Wash. ; Dr. F. H. Lace, Ex-Lieut. -Governor
of . Washington, Davenport,
Wash.; W. B. . Lottman, - cashier of
Fidelity National Bank, Spokane; Jno.
W. Grabam, of Jno, W. Graham & Co.,
wholesale stationers, Spokane; A. B.
Stewart, of Stewart & Holmes, wholesale
druggists, Seattle; D. S. Johnston,
wholesale and retail pianos and otgans,
Tacoma;C. G. Smallhouse, president
Warren Deposit Bank, Bowling Green,
Ky. Judging from the personal of these
gentleman, we would conclude that the
proposition was a No. 1.
There are numerous placer mines in
the immediate neighborhood of this com
pany's property, one being within one
half mile which yielded more than
$30,000 in the year of '08. Quoting the
Spokesman Review of March 26th, they
Captain J. W. Heisner hag returned
from a trip to the Burnt Creek mining
district of Central Idaho, where be went
to inspect the claims which have been
recently incorporated in the Syndicate
Gold Mining Company of this city. He
is enthusiastic over the property and
over the prospects for not only making
a mine of that group, but for the develop'
ment of great mining properties in that
district which has been much neglected.
"The claims I went to see," said the
captain last evening, "are in the min
eral belt of which the Buffalo Hump
and the Pierce City mines are parts
The Syndicate group is about forty
miles north and a little west of the
Buffalo Hump. The claims are on the
divide, and standing upon them we can
see Moscow mountain to one side and
the Hump itself almost due south, with
Pierce City lying between us and the
Hump. We are at an elevation of 7000
COULD NOT BJEXIEVE IT.
"I scarcely credited the statements
made to me by the men who owned
this group of claims. They seemed far
too big to.be accurate, but I can say to
you now that the property presents
itself to me as quite the biggest thing
I have ever seen in many years of ex
perience in the mining camps of the
west. There is a ledge averaging be
tween eight and ten feet wide and
opened by shafts, cuts and tunnels for
a distance of 800 feet. I have bad five
average assays made of the ore in the
various workings and the average of
them all is $83.73, the lowest being $2.05
and the highest $378 63. The richest
ore came from a shaft sunk in about the
center of the ledge as far as it has been
opened up. The ore is a white quartz
' which pans well, but is of a concentrat
ing character mostly. A large part of
the vein is discolored with copper stain,

copper, although the quartz shows
something which looks like gray copper.
THE MOTHER LODE.
"If ever a group ot claims had the
indication of being on the mother lode
of. a placer district, this gronp does.
Creeks drain the mountain sides both
ways from the summit, and on every
one of these streams placer mining is
in progress. I saw nuggets as wide as
my thumb nail and an abundance of
smaller coarse .gold taken from these
streams. Almost all ot them have their
headwaters within the boundaries of the
Syndicate group. There is considerable
activity in the placer mining. Water'
is running and the claim owners are
taking advantage of it. Some of the
claims are being worked with line by
draulic plants. All of these .streams
are branches either directly or indirectly j
of the North Fork of the Clearwater.
GOLDEN LOCK AND KEY.
"The two principal claims of the
Syndicate group of ten are the Golden 1
Lock and the Golden Key, and the de
velopment work has been done on both.
There are four prospect shafts on the
veins opening it to depths of from eight
to twenty feet. A tunnel is in on the
vein 150 feet, and a prospecting tunnel
has cut the vein at slight depth in
twenty feet from the portal. In addi
tion there are several open cuts. The
snow is very deep on the mountain and
I could not see the claims as well as I
wished, bnt in the openings made I saw
enough to convince me of the value of
the property. It is solid quartz between
well defined walls, and so situated that
a tunnel can be run directly on the vein
for a long distance, gaining fully 1500
feet depth in running a distance not
"To reach Burnt Creek district from
Spokane one goes to Kendrick and takes
there the wagon road east to Chapman's
saw mill, a familiar old landmark on
on the North Fork of the Clearwater.
From that point a wagon road runs ten
miles up the North Fork and then a
pack trail can be taken for five miles
direct to the Syndicate camp. This
trail is1 kept open by the placer miners
in the district. There are fully 75 men
at work in the mines in that vicinity,
and they are figuring on extending the
wagon road this summer up within
three miles of our claims. The gold in
these gulches is richer than around
Pierce City. It averages $19 to $19.50
per ounce, while the Pierce City srold is
worth only about $14 per ounce. Pierce
City is twenty-five miles south.
TO START WORK SOON.
"As soon as the snow goes off suffi
ciently we shall send In a force of men
to commence the development of the
Syndicate group. The first work will
be to more thoroughly strip the ledge,
after which a tunnel will be started
directly on' the- vein. The claims are
equipped with a cabin, cook house and
smithy, and the former owners have a
full supply of. tool s on the ground. The
claims were owned by Kendrick men
A strong company has been formed here
with a large directorate of prominent
mining men of Spokane, to develop the
"If I were to spend this summer pros
pectin ft I would want no better place to
go than central Idaho. There is a vast
unprospected field. Placer mining has
been the only thing which has had any
attention. The quartz ledges through
out many square miles lie unexplored.
Unless all signs fail we shall hear some
great news of the central Idaho gold
belt this year. The 'Hump is not the
only camp which will become famous."
Mr. Garrett will be in the city two or
three days and while here will receive
subscription for a limited number of
shares in this company at 3 cents per
share. Call and see samples of ore and
get a prospectus of the company.
This stock is fully paid, non-assesable.

Minnesota regiment, at Bowen, Bigaa
and Bocave, five miles south of Malolos,
killing two men and wounding 14.
Simultaneously the outpoBts of the
Oregon regiment at Marilao, the next
station on the way to Manila, were at

icans were killed and two wonnded.
The loss of the enemy was ten . men
killed and six wounded. The Ameri

Washington, April 11. The following
dispatch was received from General
Otis today :
"Manila, April 11. Adjutant-General,
Washington : The insurgents attacked
MacArthnr's line of railway communi
cation last night in considerable force,
aud were repulsed by Wbeaton with
heavy loss. Wheaton's casualties were
three killed and twenty wounded.
"Lawton's success at Santa Cruz was
more complete, than reported- yesterday.
The enemy left ninety-three uniformed
dead on the field, and a number serious
ly wounded. Lawton has captured the
city without destruction ot property.
His lose was ten wounded, slight except
two. One has since died. Lieutenant
Elling was the enly officer wonnded.
His injury is slight in the hand.' The
enemy retired eastward. Lawton is in
pursuit this morning'. OTIS."
The attaci of insurgents upon the
railway north of Manila indicated to the
war department officials that while Mac
Arthur wae pushing north bodies of in
surgents took to the mountains and
jungles to the right of the railway, and
have been watching their opportunity
to capture the road at some point and
thus cut of the main body to the north
ward. The repulse of the natives shows
that they had not sufficient force to ac
complish the purpose.
Final Act in the Restoration of Peace.
Washington, April 11. The complete
restoration of peace between the United
States and Spain was effected today.
The ceremony of exchanging ratifications
occurred at the executive mansion at
2:04, when the president banded M.
Cambon, the French ambassador, the
American copies of the treaty, and the
ambassador in return gave to the presi
dent the Spanish copy of the treaty,
properly attested by the quetn regent
and the premier of Spain.

THEY RIDICULE IT.
Many People Ridicule the Idea of an
Absolute Cure for Dyspepsia
and Stomach Troubles.
Ridicule, However, Is Not Argument,
and Fact are Stubborn Things,
Stomach troubles are so common and
in most cases, so obstinate to cure that
people are apt to look with suspicion on '
any remedy claiming to be a radical, i
permanent cure for dyspepsia and in
digestion.. Many such pride themselves
on their acuteness in never being hum
bugged, especially in medicines.
This fear of being humbugged can be
carried too far, so far, in fact, that many
people suffer for years with weak diges
tion rather than risk a little time and
money in faithfully testing the claims
made of a preparation eo reliable aud
universally used as Stuart's Dyspepsia
Now Stnart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
vastly different in one important respect
from ordinary proprietary meaicines for
the reason that they are not a secret
patent medicine, no secret is made of
their ingredients, but analysis shows
them to contain the natural digestive
ferments, pure aseptic papain, the diges
tive acids, Golden Real, bismuth, hy
drastis and nux. They are not cathartic,
neither do they act powerfully on the
organ, but they cure indigestion on the
common sense plan of digesting the food
eaten thoroughly before it has time to
ferment, sour and cause the mischief.
This is the only secret of their success.
Cathartic pill? never have and never
can cure indigestion' and stomach
troubles because they acteutirely on the
bowels, whereas the whole tronble is
really in the stomach.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets taken after
meals digest the food. That is all there
is to it. Food not digested or half diges
ted is poison as it creates gaB, acidity,
headaches, palpitation of the heart, loss
of flesh and appetite and many other
troubles which are often called by some
other name. They are sold by drnzgists
everywhere at 50 cents per package
