THE SUMPTER MINER.
Ladies Have Raised Nearly
$1000 for The Enterprise.
The Protestant hospital for Snmpter is
now assured, since the ladies who
actively had this noble cause in hand re
port most liberal subscriptions from nearly
every one they have approached, th list
of which will be published when they
have more completely canvassed the terri
At this time, however, they have J926
guaranteed. The site will be immediately
selected and the building commenced as
soon as lumber can be secured.
Mrs. Jacobs and Mrs. Creighton, two
ladies of the Portland White Cross so
ciety visiting here, have agreed to furnish
completely, a private room, and also to
pay the fare of a nurse from Portland;
the only condition being that the nurse
may wear the badge of their society In
the hospital. Three other parties have
also agreed to furnish private rooms to be
used by such patients as can afford quar
ters separate from the wards.
Space this week forbids as extended
a notice as it deserves, but mention must
be made of the very successful ball given
Friday evening, the proceeds of which
added Suo to the hospital fund. The
Ellis hall was tastily decorated, re
freshments served free to the patrons and
the scene on the dancing floor was such
as might have been witnessed in a fash
ionable ball room of a large city. Many
have expressed a desire to have these
dancing parties given each month for the
Denetit of the hospital.
AMAZON AND BLACK BIRD.
Pcnntylvanl Owned Properties Showing
Up Good With Development.
The Amazon group on Silver creek, a
second extension of the Golconda, being
bought by F. J. Conroy, of Pittsburg,
Pennsylvania, for parties of that city, is
being rapidly and successfully developed.
The work at the present time consists of
a 4oo-foot tunnel, ioo-foot cross cut,
which shows fifty feet of fine quartz,
though the pay chute has not been found.
Neither has there been any Indication of
The Black Bird properties near the
Bonanza Is also being developed by Mr.
Conroy, by a crosscut tunnel which is
nearly 600 feet in length. The shaft at
this mine shows ore from 2.so to ji per
ton, as indicated by various assays. The
tunnel will strike the vein at about 760
feet, or about 510 teet below the clear of
the shaft. It is expected to develop a
mine fully as good as the Bonauza.
The ledge on the east end of the Black
Bird is being opened up by Colonel Ray
and A. L. McEwen, in the White Ele
phant, and on the west end, just across
the hill, by Mr. Conroy, the vein showing
good values at both ends.
