Assistant Engineer Kenhu.of the
Killen, Waruer, Stewart J company,

Itondryx company bonded from
Clark Tabor what Is known aa the
Tabor Fraction in tho Bourne dh
triot, and that thereafter tho Goieer
Hondryx Co. contracted with the
Columbia Mold Mining company for
the operation of tho saM property
on a certain baai i aud division of
the protlta from the mining aud
milling of tho ore from said claim.
The complaint further alleges that
no accountings have been had from
such operatiou and that the com
plainant believes that at leaBt
twenty-five hundred tone of or
have oeen taken from the property
every mouth, at a value of $15 per
ton, and that the defendant now
owes the plauitlff at least 150.000.
The cocsplaiuant nuw asks for an
acoouutiug, for the appolutment
of a reueivor aud cancellation of the
existing contract between tho plain
tilt aud defeudant and the isauancu
of an iujuuotiou iu estoppel of fur
ther transactions ponding the unit.
F. S. Baillie, manager of the
Columbia, is quoted aa apt, lug that at
proHent there is nothing further to
add, thau that certain statements
must be proven, also that tho ami
tract under which hh company is
miniug aud milling urea of the Frac
tion is on Hie at the court house iu
Baker City.
The talk around town todny ia that
some souuatioual features will be de
veloped brforo this catso ia diapoard
of; uo one, howovor, venturing to
voice the nature of thia alleged hhuhii
with the main Standard. The two
new tunuels will be at tho same ole
vatiou, ao thut they will be on tbo
line ut the tramway, which will
connect all the workiugs with the
I reductiou plant to be erected uext
Work is also beiug proaeouted on
the Juuiper vein, wbiab, according
to surveys made by Engineer Keubu,
will intersect the main Standard
edge at a short distance abend of
FEBRUARY 15, uoq
the present face. The contiguity of
this intersection is evidenced by a re
markable enrichment of the main
Staudard in cobalt, an iuorease beiug
noted aa progreBi Is made toward tho
cuullux. The ore Iu the main Stan
dard has also becomo ao hard that
liBUd atoel has been abandoned and
electcrio drills inatalled.
Whou the Copper Ridge aud Sido
Iasuo aro opeucd up, aa outlined
above, tho Staudard mine will have
four oro-eouroea oxnluBivo of tho
paying olf-ahooting veiua out by tho
main drift. When theae aro connect
ed by train with it reduction plant,
in which the almost fabulously rich
urea from tho multiuietnllod mine
may be concentrated fot shipiiieut,
the Staudard will bo undoubtedly
one of tho biggest dividend-payers In
thia camp.
