Mountain Vicvv mine until the tram to

Sugar Pine mine is completed, when
they will run steadily day and night.
The machinery for tho tram is all
in Bidwell except what portions have
been taken to the site. Tho remainder
is now being taken up piece at a
time -the process necessarily being
slow, owing to tho ground in the re
