THE SUMPTER MINER
THINKS LEDGE IS NEAR.
Formation at Gladstone Indicates
Proximity of Vein.
W. II. Mend, of Whitney, superin
tendent of the Gladstone, who has
been here a fow days roturned to the
property this afternoon. Mr. Mead
expects to encounter tbo vein within
the noxt fow feet.
The crosscut la in 420 feet and the
indications are that thovoin is near
A great chango in tho formation
baa taken place and a good flow of
water haB been struck, indicating
the proximity of a ledge.
A. Durob, tho mining roan from
Spokano, of tho firm of Burch &
Burbrldge, passed through town
today, on his way home from tho
Independence, wbioh property tho
firm has under bond. Consldroablo
development work has been dono and
it is reported that five and a half
foot of ore has boon uncovered that
goes 850 in gold. The Indepondonoe
adjoins tho Magonial.
For half a year past these gentlomen
have been negotiating for tho
Magnolia, itself, and they would
doubtless have bought It months since
from the people in Sump tar who held
it under bond, had not tbo hammer
brigade at Granite and Baker City
succocdod in their knocking
enterprise. Today Messrs. Uurch &
Burbrldge started men sampling tho
mluo, with a view to purchasing it
directly from tbo owners.
RUSHING WORK AT
THE ALPINE MILL.
Superintendent Addonis, of tho
Apliuo nntdo ii flying trip to tho city
today iu connection with tho extousivo
construction work which tho com
pany uow him ou liuuds. If tho fair
weather continues, Mr. Addonis thinks
the twenty-stump mill cau ho
completed within six weeks.
Ho has a largo forco of mon at
work ou tbo foundation aud a crow
of carpontera has started framing tho
timbers for tbo buildings. The
lumber and other material Is on tho
ground and all the maohlnery for
the new plant has been delivered.
Every effort toward speedy comple
tion ia being put forth.
Gold And Silver Production.
Since the discovery of America
there has been brought into the
commercial world about 10,000
millions of dollars worth of gold,
and 10,500 mllllou dollars worth of
silver, valuing tbo latter at the
long time coinago ratio of 10 to 1.
Perhaps tbo immensity of tbeso
sums might be better realized by
the genrality if thoy woro reduced
to tons und carloads. Roughly
speaking tbo gold would weigh over
lO.OOOtons und the' Hiker 350,000
tons. It would require .'10,900
freight curs, each laden with teu
tons, to tiuusport tho lot. If tbeso
cars wero oach twenty-llvo foot long,
thoy would extend 022,000 feet, or
ueurly 180 miles, or twlco the
distaence between the cities of San
Francisco aud Sacramento, Cat.
dacitic Coast Miner.
A new process for tho reduction
of ores iu which the ueo of bydrogou
flguros largoly is reported to bavo
been discovered by Dr. Ollvor B.
Dawson, of Caldwoll, Now Jersey.
His process consists iu the roasting
of metallic ores in a retort containing
hydrogen, thus preventing the forma
tion of oxides or carbouates.
Hydrogen la also introduced into
tho concentrating furnace, whero it
causes tho metal to fuse togetbor in
tho form of globules said to bo almost
chemically pure. A compauy bus
been organized to orcot a fifty-ton
experimental plant to curry out the
ideas of tbo Inventor. Mining News.
