TCjie -fl'rospect of supplying the Montana
trade' from tbe Pacifio side, bas cal'ed' into
play tbe dormant energies of a class of peo
ple in the upper country whose lights have
long been hid' under a bushel. Every known
trail- across, the Bitter Root Mountains, or
around them, has found its special advocates.
Most of those who are moving in the matter,
bave never even crossed by any of tbe trails
ur, roads about which they discourse so dog
matically, but depend for information onjold
mountaineers and reliable Indians. Although
they all disagree among themselves, as to
which is the best route, and where tbe proper
point of departure is located, tbey all agree
that a certain sura, is needo.d to carry out
their ideas. By a singular co-incidence, they
all agree upon the sum of $6,000 as the pre
cise amount necessary, to construct a good
wagon road, practicable for full-loaded
wagons every day in tbe year. By the expen
diture of this Inconsiderable sum. the public
is led to believe tbat the rich trade of Mob
tooa. willi b. brought right to our doors.
There is one . condition necessary to the suc
cess of any of these proposed routes, and
that, is the projector is to have, the power to
expend the money in bis own way. "If the
matter is given into tbe bands of confounded
fools, it is certain to be a failure," says one;
'tit you will place $6,000 in my hands, gen
tlemen, I will clear out tbe Mullan Road,"
sajs another, and still., another thinks that
$6,000, wpuld, make tbe Pen d'Oreille route
the best, road to Blackfoot. Some persons
give up, discouraged with the apathy ot a
people who will not give $6,010 to be fitian
cially saved ; others curse tbe country and
tbe lack of public spirit proposing to leave
tbe country." as. sopn as I can get my busi
Tbe ppint to, all this seems to be, first, thai
there is some doubt whether the Montana
mines are to be supplied from tbe Pacific side
or not; and, second, by what route the trade
is ikely to go, if it can be secured at all. ,
TbereNjs certainly soma one route which
is demonstrably tbe .best fiom the Columbia
River, but it is fur from settled which tlia
route is. One thing only is sure, and tbat is
that no wagon road can ever be constructed
across the,. Bitter Hoot Mountains south ol
Stevens' - Pass, on , the Mullan Road. Tbe
inouotaifls absolutely forbid it. Tbe main
question is whether to cro's this range or go
around it. Tbere is a great deal tobe said
on both sides, and time only can determine
which method is the best.
Rooky Bab, South Roisk. The quartz
myii.ng interest at South Boise is receiving KOC28tf.
a new impetus from the operations of capi- ps
taltsts from tbe Atlantic side. Col. O'Neal's
eight-stamp mill is completed, and has made
one or two runs on rock from the ."Ada. El
more;" which, while not as rich as it was
generally expected to be, was very satisfac
tory, Tbe Idaho mill, ten stamps, bas been
running alt-Summer, and, as rejiprt goes, is
doing remarkably well; but no one outside
of tbe company is in the possession, as far
as known, of any definite information as to
what bas.realiy been taken out. . This lode
and,nUl.have been bonded to Major Spear
representing a.Pittsbnrg company, at $140,-

rich gold discoveries on the Upper Columbia.
The most authentic news we have ftjom that.
Section is contained in the following extract
f'om a letter from Mr. Park VVinans. The
leiter bears date, " Golville, W. T., Oct. led
" Tbe news from the Upper Columbia is
encouraging. One claim on Cnrnes' Creek
is paying front $15 to $20 to the band per
day. Nearly n l' tbe miners hare left there
and gone to French Creek, where the miners
are doing well. . Henry LaFleur write us
that bis claim is paying well, he having
tnKen out 103 ounces tb ftve day before
wrl'ing over twenty ounces per day. But
few claims weie opened, but all prospect
well. About one hundred claims were
staked off and lakn up. Tbe mine's com
plain of rain, saying, it, bas rained most of
the time, all-: Summer. In September it
rained almost inces-an'ly, day and night,
and weather warm. But few will winter in
the mines. Most of the claims are laid over
until next June."
At the Wajrerley gold mines near Halifax,
N. 3 , 1,200 ounces pi month of the precious
metal is taken out, yielding., tbe proprietors a
profit of over $1,200.
