Never in tbc history of the Bo
hemia camp has work been carried
on in the winter time so systemat
ically and persistently as it has
this winter. Where one man has
been in the camp in the winter
time heretofore, ten can be found
today, and the work done this
winter has been on systematic lines
that insures at once the, great con
fidence the operators have in the
district's future. No backing about
but straight, well defined
development work of a permanent
nature that shows "we have come
An important sale has recently
been consumated in the Helena
Consolidated property, which gives
to the Jennings Brothers practically
the entire control of the great mine.
I C. B. Bruneau, the original locator
of the Helena, said location being
made in 1896, disposed of a one
third interest at that time to Hugh
Behne, the present mining manager
of the property, nnd a one-third in
terest to the Jennings 'Brothers.
Shortly afterward the Jennings ab
sorbed the one-third interest owned
by Mr. Behne, and in this trans
action the Jennings agreed to put
$20,000 in improvements and de
velopment work upon the property,
the fulfillment of which agreement
developed the property intoojjgood
sized moncj' vault: unng' all
these years the Messrs. Jennings
and Bruneau have worked along
persistently and harmoniously, al
though the obstacles encountered
have been many and of a most try
ing kind Some ten days ago Mr.
Bruneau sold his remaining one
third interest to the Jennings
Brothers', who now control the
property. The price paid is not
mentioned, but those who are fa
miliar with the mine know that it
was something handsome. Mr.
Bruneau will now devote his at
tention to the development of his
group of four claims known as the
Sarah group, winch he has owned
for some ten years, having thus far
only done the required' amount of
assessment work from year to year.
As soon as the weather is suitable
he will take in supplies and com
mence the summer's work, with
the view of making big inroads on I
the work already laid out. The
property is said to be very promis
ing, and surely no one is deserving
of greater success than the owner,
The Le Roy Mining Company is
plugging along, doing business at
the same old stand with highly
satisfactory results, as, witness the
following letter received by Secre
tary Eby, under date of February
"Le Roy Mine, Mr. F. G. Eby
Dear Sir: Everything is going on
lively up here. We are going down
on fine ore every day and are tak
out all kinds of the finest looking
rock. The galena has widened
out to fifty inches. Block me off
another 1000 shares, and enclosed
find check for same. Yours truly,
J. E. Russijli.."
It might be noted that Mr. Rus
sell arrived in town last Monday,
and substantiated the contents of
the above letter in person. He is
loud in his praise of the way the
Le Roy is acting, and in fact has
the best kind of words for the en
tire camp. In speaking of the Le
Roy property, Mr. Russeil stated
that they now have a shift of men
down on the lower tunnel on the
Lauraand that the development of
that claim is very satisfactory as
Arrangements are now being
made to begin the season's work on
the Hiawatha Mining Company's
property, not later than April 1.
The company sprang into existence
some two months ago, having at
the time of incorporation two tun
nels of some 300 feet, and the
ore in sight was the prime incen
tive for the present owners taking
hold of the property, The com
pany expects to do continuous de
velopment work all summer, and
as soon as machinery can be hauled
in a mill will be erected to take
care of the large amount of free
milling ore now in sight, as well
as to handle that yet to be brought
to the surface on the way down to
to the baser metals. When the
company was organized a block of
50,000 shares was placed on the
local market at two cents per share.
At this writing the two cent stock
has been sold and the company has
now placed, a limited amount on
the market at five cents. The ob-,
ject of the sale of this stock at the
price quoted above is purely for the
purpose of putting in machinery
and developing the property. The
owners are men old in the business
of mining and are free to say that
the Hiawatha will be a dividend
payer from the moment a stamp

A sale of mining property in Bo
hemia was consumed last Saturday,
of no small interest to mining men,
in the matter of the disposition of
the Sunrise group, owned by C. F.
Mitchell, consisting of the Sunrise
and the Sunrise Fraction, to M. XJT
Mahoney, the well-knowu mining
man from Spokane, Wash., for
$3,500. This property is located
on the east slope of old Fairview in
close proximity to the Le Roy, and
has only one hundred feetof tunnel,
aside from other minor improve
ments; but bas behaved so nicely
in its present small development
that Mr. Mahoney seen a mine in it
at the very beginning and certainly
no one will deny his ability to
judge. Mr. Mahoney has visited
many of the richest mining districts
on the Pacific coast and has been
identified with some of the best of
them. He has nothing but words
of praise for Bohemia and predicts
for the district a bright future.
F. D. Wheeler is now in Fargo,
N. D., in the interest of the Crystal
Consolidated Mining Company. He
expects to visit several other enter
prising cities in that section before
returning home, and will make it
his business to let people know
that there is such a place as Cot
tage Grove and Bohemia. His
company has recently acquired
some new properties, thus greatly
enhancing the value of its stock,
which is now quoted at fifteen cents
per share. Development work h as
already been started on the Trans
vaal claim in Champion canyon,
and from present indications a fine
schute of galena ore will be tapped
inside of thirty days. Arrange
ments are also being made for ex
tensive development on, several
other properties belonging to the
V. H. Behne, superintendent of
the Helena, who recently came in
from the camp, reports a rich strike
in the New Long tunnel, on Helena
No. 2, showing a foot of galena ore
and about three feet of vein matter,
heavily mineralized. As yie tun
nel will tap the apex of .the hjll at
a depth of 1800 feet, it is very grati
fying to know that the bodies are
continuous, thus assuring a rail
