NEWS OF THE MINES.
EXTENSIVE ORE BODY.
Flynn Croup of Claim Near Wallace to
Km Worked again.
Wallace, Idaho, Angust 27. The
Flynn group of claims are to be worked
it once The Flynn group consists of
22 claims, located in 1887 by the Flynn
brothers. The claims are all on the bin
lead, which is clearly defined from the
Helena-Frisco mine on the Canyon
creek side to the Morning mine, and
have a continuous lead of over two
miles in length. Fourteen of the
ilaims have been patented for several
greats and the other eight are to be pat
ented this fall, and aftei the survey him
lieen made Montana parties of unlimited
;apital will take the entire property on
i bond and at once commence system
a'u; development upon it.
In the minds of mining men there
has never existed much doubt as "to the
Flynn croup. It could hardly be pos
iihle that a break wonld occur in the
mineral lead on which the claims are
located, and at either end of which
tuch bonanza ore bodies as the Helena
Frisco and the Morning mines have
npeuad. The Flynn group has two
miles of this same lead, between these
two big producers, and surely covers
one of the greatest and most extensive
ore bodies in the Northwest.
A lot of work has been done on the
property in the year since the claims
have been located, but being a deep
miuu proposition, the owners have been
suable to develop it into a producer.
Last year a tunnel was run to tap the
lead below the mounter iron capping of
the summit. This iron knoll is an
elevation of fully 5,000 feet and covers
an era almost as large as Wallace.
Altogether over 0,000 feet of tunnel has
been run on the various claims, and
the ininorali.Htion has been good in all
of it. None of this tunnel worked was
lufllciently extensive, however, to ex
plore the ore bodies. On the iron-Silver
claim the lead was tapped with a
tunnel of 404 feet. The face of the
tunnel was quite freely mineralized for
h greater part of the distance. From
the point where the tmimd cut the lead
a drift of 110 feet was run, all show
ing considerable ore. The ledge is
about 30 foot wide, and the walls are
in place and solid.
A tunnel from the Canyon creek side
in the vicinity of the Frisco would cut
the lead on the Flynn group at a depth
of nearly 8,000 feet, and it has long
been contended by practical mining
men that this is the most advantageous
point from which to open up tha prop
LOOKING FOR IDAHO COAL.
Would be a lllg Thing for the Kullroail
and fur LewUton.
The discovery of immense coal de
posits near Lewistou Idaho, will it is
believed, have great influence in the fu
ture railroad construction in that sec
tion. The deposits are located about
13 miles from the mouth of the Grand
Ronde river, and if the results of de
velopment meet the elaborate indica
tions, they promise to exert a material
influence on the railroad situation iu
the Snake river country, gays the Lew
istou Tribune. The 0. R. & N. Co.,
it is eaid, Is anxiously investigating
coal prospreuts in the basins of the Co
lumbia and Snake rivers with the hope
of providing and adequate supply of
coal for its systom and if such i) the
case the discovery of a good quality
in sufficient quantity on the Grand
lionde would be a most welcome devel
opment to that road.
' OREGONCOAL FIELDS.
The Oeologlcal Survey rublUhei a Late
lleport ou Them. ,
Washington, August 27. The coal
fields of Oregon are thus summarized
by the latest report of the geological
The coal fluids of Oregon, so far ns
yet known, all lie west of the Cascade
ninge and north of Rogue river, Most
of them are among the monntuins gen
erally known in Oregon as the Coast
raiige, but others occur at the western
foot of the Cascade range. Four fields
will be uotioed the upper Nehalem
coal lipid, in Columbia county; the
lower Nehalem coul fields, in Clatsop
couuty; the Yaquina ooal Holds, in
Lincoln county and the Coos Bay ooal
fields, in Coos county. Traces of coal
have been fond In many other parts of
the state. The greatest hindrance to
the development of the Oregon ooal
fields is the lack of transportation.
Work I'rogremlng on the Klinberley.
Tho tunnel on the Kimberley, in the
Kamloops, B. C, district, is iu 827 feet.
Last week a vein was struck ou the top
of the tunnel, at a pitch of 45 degrees.
Hunches ot very good ore have beou
encountered, of ohaloopyritea and black
oxides. The present vein matter is
very much decomposed, but so far con
siderably exceeds in value anything
hitherto taken from the tunnel. This
finishes the contract for the 100 feet ot
driving. Work is still in pi-ogress,
aud will be prosecuted steadily.
Riiud to Blue Klver Mine.
Crews of men and teams have gone
from Drowusvillo, Oiegon, to build the
wagon road from that plaoe to the
Hlue river jnines. Relays of men will
bo at work until the road is completed
to the mountains.
Copper III Uulou County.
The copper fields in the eastern part
of Union county, Oregon, are likely to
become valuable property. Property
twins worked by the North American

gray copper in good quantities. Re

ore exists in this section.

Oold-StiKlded Rock Obtained In Gold
Seattle, August 27 Good tidings of
the rapid advance of mining operations
in the Mount Baker gold fields were
taken to Whatcom by II. G. Anderson,
who arrived fiom Red Mountain, via
Chilliwack and Vancouver, ii. C. Mr.
Anderson was one of the discoverers of
the Anderson-Schriuisher gold ledge on
Red mountain. In the lilade he says
the prospects of the leading ledges in
that district are most encouraging, and
owners are pushing development work
rapidly. Work on the Post-Lambert
ledges has been suspended for a few
days, u waiting the arrival of engines
and fans with which to drive away the

Prices are steady, but there is . talk
of a decline, perhaps $10 per ton, in,

it is believed the railroads will be
willing to place orders for the ensuing
Jems' supplies. More good news comes
from the great iron centers, where
bridge and boatbnilders and makers of
agricultural implements, stoves and
cast iron pipe are all eager to secure
finished or partially finished material.
Prices are sustained, and in a few
cases move upward. Iron, generally,
is already a solid and better balanced
market than for two months past.
Another sharp decline has taken
place in the price of tin, but copper is

Factories are still working only part

There is more activity in the hide

strong foieign quotations, activity in

For miles along the Pennsylvania

of coke furnaces, blazing up Into the

heat going to waste absolutely. With
proper management these ovens could
be located near great cities, the heat
now wasted could generate power for
street cars or public heating or other

be reduced to millions of families. Be

SOLDIER'S LIFE EASIER.
Protection, Weapons and Food Mach
Improved of Late Years.
Although soldiering would seem to be
a more perilous business than it ever
was before, In consequence of the
greater force, rapidity and range of
weapons, and the higher power of ex
plosives, the result may show that mod
ern battles are not more deadly than
were those of the Civil War, since an
attempt has been made to counteract
the destructive forces by stouter pro
tections In forts and by a system of
tactics that replaces the old solid for
mations with something like the skir
mish order of former times. It may be,
also, that the troops will fight at fur
ther distance, allowing for the longer
carriage of bullets and shells.
But of one thing we are certain. If
the perils of war have been multiplied
the comforts of the camp have been
Increased until they are a partial offset.
Clothing Is stouter, If the millers choose
to make It so; camp outfits Include
eooklng apparatus that can be carried
on the back of one man; the canning of
meats, vegetables and fruits, the desic
cation of other articles of food, and the
general cheapening of many things that
were luxuries a few years ago make It
possible to live In camp almost as in a
hotel. The substitution of aluminum
for iron In utensils is another advant
age, and in general there Is a tendency
to both lightness of outfit and extension
of properties contained tn It.
In addition to the articles provided by
the government in its clothing and ra
tion allowances, the man with a gun
is now allowed to buy and have pipes,
tobacco, soap, writing materials, pens,
basins, blacking brushes, silk handker
chiefs, matches, towels and an addition
to bis menu in cheese, canned goods,
dried fruits, deviled ham, preserves,
white sugar, lime Juice, Worcestershire
sauce, pickles, Jam, ginger, spices and
cranberry sauce. Rum Is discounte
nanced In hot countries, for it encour
ages sunstroke and Intensifies other
troubles peculiar to the climate.
