Mr. Editor: The impression has gone abroad that work in this
camp has been practically shut down for the winter, at least such has
been said by some of your townspeople. But it is far from the truth,
as you will see from the following notes picked up by your corre
spondent in only one day's travel.
Johnson and Byrne Bro's are driving a tunnel on their claim' near the
mouth of Grizzly creek. Thus far thev have drifted about 20 feet
and the face of the ledge shows a body of copper ore about three feet
wide, and high grade, as their last assay gives returns of $60. 'They
have also done considerable work in the way of excavating for the
purpose of building a large ore bin. They have about 10 tons of high
grade ore 011 the dump at present and as soon as the weather permit
they will make a shipment to the Tacoma smelter. They have five
claims in this group, nicely located with an abundance of fine timber
and water. They intend to uiccrnorate in a short time and nush the
ork of developing this property. They are all thorough minine- men
and understand the business in all its details, and we predict success
Mr. Geo. Thompson has begun the erection of a cabin near Downing
point on the Champion trail, where he has lately discovered a good
looking prospect, and as soon as the cabin is completed he will begin
development work. This will be a desirable location as it is nracticallv
, below the snow line, and it is hoped he may strike it rich.
James Potts and Jesse Griffin did some good work on the "Shot
Gun" claim, above the Champion mill, showing up a large body of
une loOKing quartz.
Jas. Sears has lately located a claim 011 the north slope of Fairview
mountain which he calls the ''Pennsylvania." He has a well defined
ledge six teet wide and every pan shows free gold, both coarse and fine.
Jim is one of of the fixtures in the Bohemia camp and is sure to meet
with the success he so well deserves.
Louis Betters is pushing development work on his claim on Ele
phant mountain. He has lately located some valuable property in the
The Montana Co. under the efficient management of Mr. J. D.
Fletcher, are working a force of men both clay and night. There are
golden opportunities for many more such enterprising compauies as the
Ed Jeuks, the competent foreman at the Noonday mine, and Wm.
Higgins recently located some valuable property in the vicinity of the
lake, near Elephant mountain, and will shortly do some extensive de
velopment work on the same.

winter, anu now since tney nave matte this new strike, this will cer

The Noonday company are pushing right along and getting every
thing in first class readiness for a steady run of their 20 stamp mill
early in the spring. They have Jlarge bodies of ore blocked out, and
are now better than ever prepared for a successful run. Then look out
for new life and activity.
Messrs. Teft & Geldmacher have almost finished their 300 foot
contract for J. I. Jones 011 the "Confidence" mine. It is said that they
have found a very large body of rich ore.
Jennings Bros and Bruneau have everything in readiness for the
erection of a large ore bin on their valuable property, the Helena, as
soon as spring opens. A force of men has been pushing development
work all winter.
The Music mine, the oldest dividend payer in the camp, is pre
paring for an early run in the spring. They are now filling ore bins
and blocking out ore bodies. As soon as the snow disappears so that
they can haul in a few pieces of machinery their new ten stamp mill
will be ready for operation.
The Graber Bros, are pushing work on their tunnel on the Hia

Eastern capitalists who contracted with the Graber Bros, for driving a
tunnel on the property. The boys are doing well and showing up some
Mrs. Edith Stephens has done considerable development work on
her group of claims known as the Holy Smoke, Gold Medal and Onyx.
The ledges in all three of these claims are well defined, carry free gold
and are 3 and 4 feet wide. In connection with this group is a first
class mill site with a great abundance of water and timber. Mrs.

In raising the battered hulks of
Moutojo's sunken fleet, Admiral
Dewey has surrounded himself,
with an auxiliary fleet which is
better than the names on the prows.
There are nine reclaimed Spanish
vessels now flying the Stars and
Stripes, maimed by American
officers and men and plying the bay
of Manila in the service of the
United States. They need only

The Asiatic fleet looks like a
regular Spanish Armada with
ships called the Culgoa, Barcello,
Callao, Don Juau de Austria, Isla
de Cuba, lVeyte, Manila, Mindanao,
and one or two "low rakish crafts"
which have no names at all, but
look suspiciously like the ancient
"terrors of the Spanish main."
Then, for good measure, there are
two Chinese names in Dewey's list,
theNanshan and the Zafiro,
