They Meet a Team Driven by a Drunken Man On Spearflsh Hill and By Hli Awkwardness Their Team la Backed Off the Road and Rolls Down the Hill Fully ISO Feet Rev. Ida M. Sherman, for three yean pastor of the First Baptist church of this city. Miss Rankin and Mlsa Maud, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. &.

They proceeded on their Journey to a point above the bridge st tho lime kiln, which Is about half way up the 8pearflsb Mil, and there met a nmn driving a broncho pony hitched to a cart coming In the opposite direction. The man waa evidently Intoxicated and half asleep. His reins were hanging and the pony taking lis own course In the middle of tne road. Mlxs Sheiman pulled her team out to the edge of the road to allow the man to pnss, b'i: as he made no effort to do so Miss Sherman called to him The pony had then reached tho team and atrpprd and tho man with the carl aroimlng himself ntten.ptcd to pull his hnrse out of the road. He gave the p :ny sevoml sliiHlies with the whip, which lie ll i r IhI- I in the faces of Mlm Sherman's tenm und frightened them Me then th:ev ,1 tur robe over the dust of Mk car" :i' ttitiht tu the faces of the t".vn. Tin fi l'-'it-ned the horses and they started to bin k rtlHpltn the efforts of the driver to uti.p tlu-m. The buggy wnH hiH'k'.d off the rotid, where fortu nately for the occupants tho hill was not atecp. As the buggy left the road Miss Rankin Jumped and escaped Injury. The buggy having obtained velocity the team became unmanageable and floundered. About a hundred feet be low the road was an excavation for a house, fully fifteen feet deep, and Into this rolled the buggy with Miss Sherman and Miss Orlmshaw, the buggy turning bottom upward and falling heavily upon the occupants. The team fell In a heap upon the buggy and be came entangled In the harness and wheels. In attempting to releaao them solves, the horses pulled the remnants of the vehicle farther down the hill, dragging the ladles some distance. Miss Rankin hastened to the scene and was fallowed soon after by Rube Lewis, who was returning from the val ley. The man with the cart who had been the cause of the accident walked leisurely down with his hands in hit pockets but showed no Inclination to assist Making some remark about he "guessed they wen not badly hurt" he returned to his cart and drove on. We have endeavored to ascertain hit name but without avail; we understand however, that he belonged at Lead City and that he drove right through Deadwood without atopplng. Miss Sherman waa found to bo Insensible and was bleeding profusely from numerous cuts upon the head and face. Mies Orlmshaw waa not badly bruised but was unable to ttand, bar ing sustained a broken leg. Fortunate ly then were houses In close proximity where the Injured onea were taken and cared for until the arrival of Dr. Howe who was summoned by telephone from the Oolden Rewsrd works. Carriages were aent down quickly and the victims of this serious accident wen ta ken to their homes. A careful exam ination disclose dthe fact that Miss Sherman's injuries consisted ot bruises and cuta, from which the will speedily recover. The report that tho waa In Jured Internally waa Incorrect, at though she Buffered intento pain from a bad bruise upon the back. At last accounts she was resting easy and is quite cheerful, being turrounded by kind friends who are showing every at tention. Miss Orlmehaw'a condition not serious. Dr. Howe, assisted by Dr. Paddock, yesterday reduced the fracture, and the young lady la retting comfortably. Mr. Crddrs' team was none the wo for their experience, save a few minor scratches. Tne buggy was a tota wreck. Mr. Lewis was unable to rec ognlxe the fellow in the cart Ho wa near by and witnessed the accident from first to last, although was power less to prevent It. Ho rendered tvery assistance possible in tho caao and proved to bo a valuable man in the emergency. Mitt Sherman had planned to loan yeeterday afternoon for California, where the haa been engaged to conduct a aerlet ot revival meetings at a num ber of prominent cities. She hopes to be able to go In about r. week. The newt of tho accident tproad over tho city like wild-fin and all klnda of rumors wen afloat, oven to effect that Mlit Sherman had died from tho effects of her injuries. Hundred! of warm frlendt and adminn of thin lady called at her homo, corner City Creek and Centennial avenue, but her phytlclan denied them admittance.

James Mllllken. of New York, owner of tho Mllllken Park group, situated near Kirk, on Whltewood gulch, haa sold thi property to the Homestakt fining Co.

Mr. Mllllken has owned the property several yean and has expended a large aum of m-ney In developing It A large working tunnol hat boon driven from tho Whltewood tide, a distance of nearly 1,000 feet, which cut through a number of vertical velnt of rich free-milling on. It waa oxpected to encounter tho Homeotake ledge but as Us dip was more rapid tbr.n waa thought It had not been reached when work waa stopped re cently. It haa been rumored that the Home- stake company would eventually erect large atamp-mltl In Whltewood gulch, upon tho Mllllkan ground providing It bought the property.

I he fact that there It today, a large area o fterrltory unexplored and offering great Inducements, la caualng proa-pec tire Inventors to turn their attention in tbls direction, aad It la my pur- pone to point out, without disparagement to othere, one of the possibilities ti open, which will inevitably attract attention In the near future, by reason of Its own inherent merits.

Capped aa la tho great baaln by the lime and sand-stones, it la oatlmated that within tho central portion! of tho baaln, a vortical ahaft of from 800 to ,000 feet would bo required to reach tho lower contact at tho moat farorablo polnta. Tho Spearflih canyon cutting thla gnat baatn centrally upon ita eait and weat line, oeemi to offer tho key to tho solution of tu possibilities. Cut ting, aa it does, tho cap rocks to depth of nearly 1,000 feet vertical and exposing tho shalo meaauna at polntt upon Its lino, obviates tho necooslty of Inking to this depth, at least at these polnta. . Aa I hare Intimated one company ta seeking to take advantage of natun't offering; and exploration of thla area by meana of tunnel, rather than by sinking. Thla la feasible, and from an engineering point often many advan tagea.
