When it wns generally known
Inst week that the City Council
lmil panted nn ordinance declaring
it "unlawful for any person or jier
sons firm or corporations to keep
open auv shop, grocer v, ball nllc ,
billiard room, card room, tippling
home, or other plare of husiuci't," i
all kinds of Hxxulaliou wns in
dulged in 011 the start, and many
comments of a nature unconpll
meutary to the promoters of the
scheme wetc heard. Some were of
the opinion, that it was class legls
Islatiou. Others thought, and it
would appear that the majority of
the buslii :ss class of the city is of
tills view, that it was a peice of
foolishness on the part of the City :
Council to be iullltcnced to passi
.such an ordinance. Many were In
favor of opening tip regardless of
the ordinance anil righting tliej
issue to 11 finish. Later on it was
decided that one house had better
open up and the rest remain closed.
Then if an attempt should Ik.- made
to convict the one violating
the new ordinance, the
business houses would stand to
gether uud bear the expense ol
trial carrving the case to the
Supreme Court if necessary. Ac
cording to this plan O. O. Me Clel
len, proprietor of the cigar, confec
tionery and ice cream stand, who
had u large order in for his ice
cream, was chosen as the one
to open, and sure enough
Sunday morning Mr. McClellau
threw wide his "gates," and the
usual amount of business some
hint n little more so was done.

Intercuts of the city upon his own

day morning Mr. Willard swore

arrest on the ground of violating
the ordinance. The trial was set
for Tuesday.it ro A. M., anil when
the time rolled nruinil quite a
crowd of interested and disinterested
people gathered at the office of
Recorder J. I. Young. All classes
were represented, ministers, church
members, newspaper men, business
men and sports, but iu all the vast
assemblage the lamiliar face of the
prosecuting witness, Mr. Willard,
was no where to be found. The
court, however, was patient; and ,
the hour dragged slowly by, while ,
the crowd rested lirst on one foot
and then on the other. As the
hour hand crnwled well aUng to

witness failed to appear. Recorder
Young dismissed the case for lack
About ten minutes after court .
was dismissed Mr. Willard was
seen coming in the distance, not
exactly with the speed of the wind,
but "by hand," working one pro-
pellcr after the other with steady
strokes. Mr. Willard was much
wroth, at His Honor, for dismiss
inir court without his (Willard's)
permission, but the mischiei had
been done, nnd the prosecuting
witness, after giving some ex
pression to his pent-up passions sub
mitted to the inevitable Mr Hub
bard, the proprietor of the Stone
berg cigar and camdy store near
the bridge was also arrested, but
was also discharged. As the
prosecuting witness failed to appear

T. K. Richardson, who is n
ptouiincut stockholder in the i in
proved Mineral Smelter Co. with
principal business office at Koc
burg. Oregon, was iu tliccity last
I'riday. Mr. Ricliardson is highly
elated over the test already made
by his coiupati). and states that his
company will this week commence
the erection of a plant at Anaconda,
Montana, which is put in a! the in
stigation of prominent mining men,
witli the view of making a com
plete lest of the new system, to
deriermine the merits claimed for
C. 1) Williams and M. Ulanchard
were the founders of the company,
Mr Ulanchard being the inventor,
while T. K. Richadson. having be
come ii prominent stockholder, is
secretary. The big test is made at
Anaconda. Montana, for the reason
that it is purely a smelter country,
and the results of a test given ut
that nlace will lie Riven to the
world. The great feature of the
new system is the consuming of the
smoke and the combustible gasses
with tile use of any ligntic coal
without the necessity of using coke.
It consists of a double furnace, the
secondary (urnacc utilizing the heat
from the first furnace The heat is
driven down from the first furnace
and through the slag pit; up
through the secondary furnace.
Mr. Ricliardson states that his com
pany has given the system i
thorough test and they are all satis
fied with the results and are confi
dent that it will reduce all ores.
Mr. Richardson states that the
compauys smelter is looked upon
with great favor by mining men
who have had occasion to examine
into its merits, and that many so
lvations have been rccievedfor the
purchase of stock, but the stock is
all taken by the founders of the com
pany. The outcome of the tests at
Anaconda will be wutched with
much interest, as it Is claimed not
only to be perfect iu every detail but
n great money saver over all other

Dristrict. that gentlemen expressed
his views regarding smelter for
the camp at the present time. Iu
view of much talk now going the
rounds as to the advisability of
launching a smelter enterprise in
Bohemia, the following brief view
will be read with interest; Mr.
"I do not think the erection of
a smelter plant for Bohemia ad
visable at the present lime. Two
characters of ore are characteristic
of Bohemia Iree milling and base.
The free milling ore of course can
be treated bv stamp mills, while
the base ore is treated by con
centrntlon nnd smelting. The base
ore carries iron, copper, lead and
The deeper workings of the dis
trict shows that the ores increase
in value witli depth; but at the
present time, owing to the limited
amount of work completed the
base ores do not carry sufficient
values to pay for shipping and
smelting. The ore, however, can
be concentrated from 6 to 10 tons
into one nnd will than pay a large
nrofit. after deducting the cost of
mining, milling and smelting.
While I do not see that the erec
tion of a smelter would do harm to
the district, still nt the present
time, I do not think it would pay."

work progressed, and the ore in
the tunnels has averaged over $20
free milting to the ton. This

Sailor Gulch, one mile from wagon
road to Bohemia. Group No. 3 is
situated at Twin Rocks, nbout 3
miles South west of Mustek mine.
