FRICTION IN TUB CABINET. Washington, March 1. Sentiment In Washington rather tends toward te belief that there la a disagreement. In the cabinet over thi question of the present relations with Spain. It In of course a very delicate matter to talk about, but It will not be surprising If Secretary of State John Sherrian should step down and out. It has been said that Sherman la nnt woll, but his physical weakness will not be the cause of his resignation tt cornea. Sherman Is opposed to the policy of the peace at any price element here seeking to control the administration. He has always been opposed to Spain'a methods In Cuba. Turing Orant'a administration In 1870 he Introduced a resolution rccognljilni state of war between Spain and Cuba, and two years ago, February 28, 196, Sherman, apeak ing In favor of Cuban recognition In the aenate made .his statement: "I wish to aay on my own responsibility, that, If this line of con-duct la pursued by 8paln In Cuba, and the people of the United States are informed of lta condition, aa narrn.ted dally tn the public press, there la no earthly power that will prevent the people of the United Statea from going over to that island, running all vor lta length and breadth and driving from Cuba these barbarous rob.iers and Initiators of the worst man who ever lived in the world." Sherman has never changej bin position on the Cuban question. He favored Intervention during Cleveland's administration. He baa favored It during this. He wanted to give DeLitme hla paasporta, Instead of letting Sim leave Washington attended to the depot by half of the diplomatic corps. Ittit Sherman li a sidetracked sccre ary of state. The public and the press lave often Inquired during the present exciting period: "What haa become of Sherman T" The real truth of the mat ter is that Secretary Gage and John Sherman do not agree. Sherman knows the Cuban question from the tlm. . the ten year' war to date. Gage is not posted as to detail, but he Insists i n a plan of procedure that Sherman cannot and will not sanction. If Shermai Is not going to run the state department he la going to get out The old t:ian, while physically weak. Is not ao mentally daft but what he can see the anomaloua position In which b Is placed. WYOMINO SILVER REPUBLICANS. Cheyenne, Wyo., Mar. 1 The Slierl-dan Enterprise says: "Hon J. F. Brown the popular silver leader of Big Horn, was In Sheridan on Monday. Mr.Browa aays silver republicans all over the state are organ Icing for an active cam paign, and that a temporary organlxa- Ion will shortly be perfected In this t'Uuty.

At the suggestion of Dr. A. A.

A permanet t or ganization will be effected later thla spring by mass conventions of th silver republicans In the various couutler The object of thla organization 1 to more fully co-operate with the ntlver democrats of the atate In the eni ulng campaign along the lines suggested b the recent appeala aent by the chair men of the national committees of thr silver allied forces.

The old plat er mining country along Cat tle creek la having more than a palng notice at thla time, If the numerous heavy outfit going in there are any indication. It la well known that the region around Mystic haa been famous for placer gold. Gold haa been found all over the Hllla where gravel dopoalt are found. Places are found on top of the hllla that have the ap pearance of old river beds, and seem to have been upheaved age ago. It has always been supposed that more gold would be found on the bedrock of Castle creek than anywhere else. Th bars down near the water level have many of them boen worked with profit every year. There la a tremendous amount of water running down through the formation of the valley of Caatle creek. The moment you gel below the level of the creek you appear to have the creek Itself to contend with, ai that any ordinary attempt to alnk a haft would be futile. Four heavy rompanlea are now preparing to battle with the element and go to bedrock, which I variously estimated to be thlr ty to forty feet below the aurface. Weber & McUiide of Kanaaa City com tneured late hut fall with a fifty-horse power boiler and engine and a ten' hone-power gasoline hoisting engine and an eight-Inch centrifugal pump, at a point near Mr. Pitts, about two miles above Mystic. They sunk to bed rock and demonstrated that they could handle the water, and as winter come on early they c!oeed down but are pre paring to go to work about th let of April and expend plenty of money searching for gold. Bhlnn 4 Bell trom Corning, la., com' meuced sinking Just opposite the upper end of the switch at Myatlc In January. After golr.e- down twenty feet they dis covered the volume of water to be to great that they had to close down laat week until tfcey can get In a larger pump and engine. Theae people have been to tb Klondike and aay they would rather chance Caatle creek thai the Klondike. lAst week Meaara. Bumhart ft Wele- hard of Corning, la., delivered on th ground about one half mile below My tic, on the lower end of the old Fargo claim, a flfty-horae-power boiler an J engine to run an eight-Inch centrifugal pump, and men are now engaged In etting the am up and It will be In operation In ten day. Meaara. Thompson ft Hymer alao laat week delivered a flfty-hore-power out- lit to operate an eight-Inch pump Just oppoalte the lower end of the witch at Mystic, and men are now cngag4 In setting up the machinery. It will be In operation 4nside of two weeks. Sev eral year ago a shaft waa sunk at this place and rich bedrock waa found, but the water was so great and trouble wlih the claim owners and other reasons caused a auspensioo of rork, the haft being filled up with floods and nothing haa been done since. But a few men are required In sinking shaft, so there Is no nsed of an Influx of h bor until theae companies begin drifting along Uve bedrock, which they all Intend to do until they fully prove the around la either rich or poor. This country will come Inside of the gov ernment forestry reserve, and It main to be seen what effect that will have on mining interests. A NEW QUARTZ MILL.

The property was sold by the sheriff, to satisfy judgment of foreclosure cbtalne'd on the Ztith of January, by Alfred 0. Smilh as trustee for the bondholder. for $33S.7!h.2. The property waa bid ! in by 1 tat Iim k W. Seaman, as trustee for the bondholders. 'Mils sale Is In the nature of a reor ganization of the corporation and soon ii w company will be formed with a vlt w to opeinlltig the property on ao extensive stale. The new company wl.l not be changed materially from the iHTsonnel of the old stockholders. The old Indebtedness will be expunged by the Is-t'iniice of stock to the amount of JJ.Vi.iitin. and the proposition made (he bondholders Is a very liberal on.-. They propose to rmcel the dlf- feu nee between the Bin unit of their JihUment. SN.":i8.42 and the amount of the capital stock, f2.'0.000, which Is lins.T'js. In other wohU the bond-holders will concede this amount and expect the members of th new cum- p.iny to suliscillie In proportion to their Interests In the former company. The company will resum; operations In I lie iieur future. In all probability Hide will be a consolidation of the rurciauil anil Clinton Mining compa nies, wlioee properties lie adjacent and v lid h ai-e substantially Identical aa re- 1 hhI their sttfckholdci s A double compartment shaft will be sunk ta tintit.lto and It will doubtless be sunk un the 'hie dividing the Pert land and Clinton groups, thus developing both properties. It Is believed that the UUiirtlte will be reached at 360 feet or t hereabouts and a numli-r of promi nent mining men agree up'in this point i'lie Portland company, aa la well known, bus opened a large fine body of ore of a good grade. This I upon the upper or what la termed the third contact by the Paid Mountain mlnera. The Clinton company, in It working on the west slox of the mountain, haa opened a second contact at some dis tance lower than the Portland workings, where a better quality of ore waa opened. The ore upon the lowest con tact Is still better. The stockholders nf the company are uvm of large wealth and are able to carry on work of largo magnitude. The Portland Is the pioneer company of Bald Mountain and Its operation have been historic. The company was organized In 1S79 and proceeded to de velop lu property. Ore bodies wore dls lovrretl and assays allowed the or to carry high value In precious metals The dlltlcult problem was to treat ths ore, A :o-stamp mill was built In 1880 at a large cost, aa transportation by leama waa very expenalve In those days, and supplies and labor were high l he mill was started upon the ores but It was soon discovered that the gold could not be saved by amalgamation and the stamp mill was a dead letter, The company, however, experimented for years upon processes for treating the ores, and It was In this way that the large horded debt was built up. Finally, when barrel chlorlnatlon was proven a commercial success In thla city by the Golden Reward com pany, an auxiliary corporation of the rortland Mining company erected a fine chlorlnatlon plant In this city. It was not successful however, owing to mismanagement. The mill was de stroyed by fire upward of three years ago. By this reorganization 'he company will be placed upon a good, substantial business basis and will be clean and clear for new work. TWO niT DISTRICT. The Two lilt Mining district, situat ed two miles east of this rlty, promises to be a second Leadville. Although there has not been any activity In the district, to apeak of, until within the past alx months, It Is now the liveliest ramp In the country.
