    NEWS AND GOSSIP OF
THE SLATE CREEK MINES
Eureka Group Sold to C. D. 'Lane of
California.
i
Seattle, June 14. News onmei from
Anacoi tea that work will be resumed
on a large scale on the Eureka group of
mines in the Slate Creek mining camp,
which now belong to C. D. Lime, a
millionaire mining operator of Califor
nia. The final transfer to Mr. Lane
was effected in Aiiacortes a few days
ago. This is the property that some
yean ago was under bond to Colonel
Hart fur Montana parties. After spend
ing upward of $50,000 they allowed
ther bond to lapse, but the owners,
having faith in ther property, continued
working it until Mhout two years ago,
when a bond was made to Mr. Lane.
Aim Ant llnsdjr for Operation.
The property is nearly ready for oper
ation. The tramway between the mine
and the stamp mill miiBt be finished.
The mill has 10 stamps of 1,100 pounds
each and is substantially constructed,
The property has a saw and shingle
mill and electric light plant. The
ptamp mill was completed last fall and
found to work perfectly.
It is the intention to put in a roast
ing furnace as soon as supplies can be
shipped in this summer, to treat all
ores on the ground, instead of shipping
concentrates. People who know the
property, say that it will develop into
a big mine.

hill 640 feet, where the ledge was
struck, and the indications are now
that they have a fine property. A shaft
was sunk at the first where the vein
was found in place and an average of

Spokane, June 14. A oontraot has
been let for sinking a 100-foot shaft on
the Rebeoca and running 125 feet of
tunnel on the Rebecca extension.
These olalma are owned by Spoakne
and Cheney parties. About 600 tons
ot ore are already on the dump and it

THE ROSSLAND DISTRICT
New Owners of the Giant Tako Hold
of the Property.
Rossland, B. C, June 14. The
water is being taken ont of the Grant
shaft in preparation for the resumption
of sinking on the ore body. This
work is being done by A. D. Coplen
and W. G. Armstrong, of Spokane,
the representatives of Philadelphia and
Michigan capitalists, who have ob
tained control ot the company. The
now owners express confidence that
the Giant will make a mine, and are
willing to spend money to proving it.
They are the third party to make the at
tempt, the last being Colonel W. M.
ltidpath, E. (i. Sanders and others of
the old Le Kol syndicate, from Spo
kane, but they threw up their bond
last April.
Other Canadian Mines,
Work is to be started on the N Nth-
cm llelle, which adjoins the St. Elmo,
on Red mountain, by R. E. Palmer,
j who has Just returned from Montreal,
.where he received instructions from
the owners. There is a good showing
and if the summer's work confirms its
valne a plant will be installed in the
fall.
Andrew Drewey and others have
bonded the Sunset, near Whitewater,
in the Slocan, for $30,000. It adjoins
the Wellington and a short extension
of the tunnel from that claim will tap

A Mow of water almost sufficient to

Two New Ledge Opened.
The placer district in Southern Ore
gon is showing up some very fine prop
erties. In addition to the valuable
claims already under an advanced
state of development in the district and
which have been proved to be high
grade and permanent, Paul Scharing
son is prospecting two new discoveries
which give promise of being no less
valuable than the Greenbaok or Brown
ing veins.
One of these ledges is seven feet
wide, and though the ore is not higr-
uraae as lar as prospecting lias yi
shown, still it is sullioiently mineral
ized for a milling proposition.
There is 350 feet of tunneling and a
70-foot shaft on the other ledge. This
vein is about 18 inches wide. Consid
erable money has been taken from this
ledge with an arastar.

BETWEEN-SEASONS DULLNESS.
Yet Trade,
on the Whole,
faitorr.
Il Satli-
Hradstreets' says: Measured by re
cent records and recollections of busi'
ness activity, the present between
seasons dullness seems specially mark
ed, and the reactionary movement of
prices makes trade look worse than it
really is. Judged by such indicators
as railroad tariffs and statistics of
foreign trade, the volume of business
doing is considerably larger than a year
ago, when, it will be recalled, trade
was cheerfully active. It is true bank
clearings are considerably smaller than
last year's clearings, which undobtedly
included much of the speculative char
acter this year almost wholly absent;
and ret outside of the metropolis bank
clearings are heavier this year than
last.
Wool is dull, and, on the whole,
weak in the East, while good prices
have been secured in the West. Man
ufacturers are not buying, because their
business is not active, and lower rates
for the next lightweight season for
men's wear goods are predicted, though
leading mill agents will gurantee
prices as late as October.
Lower prices for iron and steel have
not met expectations of causing a re
duction in output and increased stock.
though this latter feature apparently
has been magnified because supplies of
high-grade pig iron are still scarce,
particularly at the South. On the
other hand, low grades are in plentiful
supply, with little demand.
Rails and structural steel are still
well held, but there is talk of a leduo-
tion in prices for the latter product.
The other metals are dull, and the
whole weak. .

TWO HISTORIC PLACES ARE GO

Aaron Burr'a Mansion in New York

In New York the home of Aaron Burr
and in Mercersburg, Pa., the home of
James Buchanan, are falling Into de
cay. Both men were once signally hon
ored by the country, and both have In
teresting records. The old homes of
both are full of historic Interest not
only attaching to their owners, but to
the great men who visited them.
Burr's house on the southwest corner
of Hudson and Charleston streets In
New York City will soon be torn down
to make room for a modern structure,
At one time It was the finest residence
Buchanan's bibthplace.
on Manhattan Island tho Richmond
Hill mansion, celebrated ns the place
whore distinguished men gathered, and
to which guests from all over the world
wore proud to be Invited. In this house
Washington had his headquarters
awhile during his stay In New York;
here Mrs. John Adams lived for a num
ber of years, making It the social center
of the city, and it was here that Aaron
Bimr passed the most haDDy rears of
his life.
In 1782 Burr married Mrs. Prevost.
the widow of a British officer, and so
came Into possession of the Richmond
Hill house. On account of his gallant
services during the revolutionary war
Aaron Burr was a popular hero of the
time. He at once entered politics, and
was elected a member of the New York
Legislature the year after he settled
AARON BURR'S
In the city. At that time the mansion
stood on what Is now the corner of
Varlck and Charleston streets. It was
surrounded by a park of 100 acres, ex
tending to the water.
When Burr's wife died twelve years
later, she left one daughter, Theodosla,
who became mistress of the most beau
tiful house In the city. Between the
father and daughter there existed an
unusually strong affection. Theodosla
was a beautiful girl, and many tradi
tions of her wit and charms are still
extant. Among visitors to the mansion
In those days were Alexander Hamil
ton, Talleyrand, Volney, Jerome Bona
parte and Louise Philippe. Nearly all
distinguished foreigners coming from
Europe were entertained there by
Aaron Burr and his daughter. At this
time Burr's fame was at Its height.
Ills home life was happy, and a great
career was open to him.
Theodosla Burr, while still quite
young, niarnea uov. Aiision, or soutn
Carolina and went to Charleston to live.
In 1800 Burr and Jefferson received an
equal number of votes for the Presi
dency, the -House of Representatives
finally deciding In favor of Jefferson,
Burr being made Vice President This
caused much bitter feeling, the result
of which was the duel between Burr
and Hamilton, resulting in the latter's
death.
Burr fled from New York, going down
the Mississippi to the Southwest.
There he bought several hundred thou
sand acres of land, Intending to found
an empire and conquer Mexico.
Jefferson had him arrested, brought
to Richmond, Va., and tried. No act of
treason could be proved, so he was set
at liberty. He then went to Europe,
trying to carry out his schemes for con
quering Mexico and founding an em
pire, all of which came to nothing. Af
ter a few years In Europe, where he
was scorned by men who had known
him In former times, he returned to
New York, broken In mind and spirit
He looked forward eagerly to meeting
his daughter again, and she set out by
boat from her home tn Charleston.
Disappearance of Theodoaia Burr.
The vessel on which she sailed was
never heard of again. It has been said
that the boat was wrecked at Nag's
Head. Another story Is to the effect
that It was boarded by pirates and that
all on board were forced to walk the
plank. Burr afterward married Mme.
Jumel, but they were soon divorced.
Richmond Hill house passed out of his
hands, and for a time was used as a
theater. Seventy -five years ago the
house was torn down when Hiohmond
Hill was leveled, and part of the ma
terials were set up again In the house
which stands now on Hudson street.
and Is all that Is left of what was once
the finest mansion on Staten Island.
Pennsylvania has had one President,
James Buchanan, and the house In
which he was born stands neglected
on Fayette street Mercersburg, Pa. At
present the building is fairly preserved,
but unless steps are taken to maintain
it it must soon make way for modern
house.
.b
As It stands now the house wa
chanan's birthplace and the house In
which he received his schooling. Both
the residence and the school house once
stood at Stonv Batter. In Franklin
County, and were removed to Mercers'
burg, the logs from the school house be
ing used to build an annex to the resi
dence. This school was kept by the
Rev. James R. Sharon, and was located
In Mercersburg. Many other noted
men besides the future President
gained their first Instruction there. Con
slderlng that this school was situated In
a thinly settled section of the State and
was attended only slightly, the scope
and erudite nature of the studies were
little short of marvelous, for Greek,
Latin, French, German, metaphysics
and philosophy were Included,
It was here that Buchanan gained the
foundation of his remarkable talents as
a linguist and profound reasoner, and
which gained him so much praise on
his celebrated tour of the world, when
he was entertained at . the courts of
Europe and held his own with the most
brilliant and erudite minds.
The father of President Buchanan,
James Buchanan, for whom be was
named, was a resident of Mercersburg
for thirty years. During his long resi
dence he was one of the best-respected
citizens of the town, a prosperous mer
chant, and man of affairs, and held
many positions of trust
James Buchanan's early school days
did not very well presage his character
and his life. At school he was exceed
ingly nlmble-wltted and mischievous,
and at one time he failed of winning a
prize for scholarship because It was
considered a bad example to reward a
boy whose deportment had been so far
below the standard. Afterward at col
lege Buchanan became a bard student,
and In his statesman's career he was
reckoned very dignified, If not pom
pous.
Dickens at Tynemouth.
The London Academy quotes from
an unpublished letter of Dickens his
account of his visit to Tynemouth, on
one of his "reading tours:"
I wish you could have been with
me (of course, In a snowstorm) one day
on the pier at Tynemouth. There was
very heavy sea running, and a per
fect fleet of screw-merchantmen were
plunging In and out on the turn of the
tide at high water. Suddenly there
came a golden horizon, and a most
