They were not selected samples, either, but a fair average representation of the material. This is very high value for hales; there have been but very few Instances where the ahalss gave higher assays. The shales of the Bald Mountain and Ruby Basin country usually assay about $1.60 per ton. This Igh grads shale Indicates that then will be a body of high grade ore en countered soon. President Zlpp, who watching the work closely, thinks the ore ton cannot be to exceed ten or flrWa feet away, Speclmeus of the shale have bwa found that show free ild. All these Indications of mlner- I serve to greatly encourage the com pany. Between layers of the shale are narrow smms of gouge which Is very rich la tnm gold, and a number of pan trs have been made showing th gouge to carry $4u0 to the ton at least. TWO BIT. D. C. Baker made a tour of the Two Bit district yesterday, visiting many of the prominent proper lea He Informs us that the numerous companies are all hard at work, pushing their shaft down with all possible haste to reaea the ore sonee. The district Is lively and a great many men are at work In the mines and In various other ways. The Oreat Eastern and Chicago and Two Bit companies are working la highly mineralised shales that run $4 to $6 to the ton. These shales lie Just above the ore and are the same as found In the Hardin shaft before the ore waa struck. The Hercules company is doing good work and Its fins mining piant la oper- aalng very nicely. The Oolden Crest Is also looking fine. Smith A Powers have struck a fine vertical vela of sul phide ore on their property, south ot the Sundance and weet of the Oolden Crest The Detroit and Deadwood shaft oa the Ground Hog Is 70 feet deep and operations were suspended on account ot the large Inflow of water, but work will be resumed shortly. The Indications were very favorable and It Is believed the ore sons will be reached within 75 feet more at thai place, the shaft being situated In a comparatively low place. Mr. Baker says that there Is lota ot building being dons In ths town at Dublin; the Miners' Union Is putting up a nice hall and Bvs modern dwell ings are going up. MORE GOLD MINES, t lories of big "finds" of gold reach us, not only from the Klondike, but fro nimany pans of ths country not hitherto susplcioned of being veined by the precious metal. A tremendous Impetus to mining Industry and the development by syndicates of capitalists of natural waits In numerous direc tions has resulted. Tho exposure and hardships of frontier miners have ever been productive of rheumatism, one of the most obstinate and agonising of complaints. As a means of ameliorat ing and preventing this malady, Hos- tetter's Stomach Bitters is unequalled. The action of this fine medicine Is al so speedily felt In cases of malaria, dyspeptic and kidney and bladder com-p'alnu. Lumbago and other Infirmities Incident to advancing years are al so counteracted by It 0 ' Senator Proctor' speech Is about the beet Information yet received as to the conditions prevailing In Cuba, and as such It Is prized In an emergency like the present when there is such a flood of misinformation that ons does not know what to belters. A triple alliance between the Unite! States, Oreat Britain and Japan, whlcn Is talked of, would be the most power ful alliance In the world. This Is the season of ths year when it is most generally regarded that mar rlage Is s failure. It Is needless to taate that It Is house-cleaning time. The United states now Has a navy equal to almost any emergency, and there need be no fear of such a wsak old bankrupt nation as Spain.

Pursuant to a call by a committee ot citizen, a mas convention wa held at the city hall last evening, for the purpose of mnuimitlng candidate for mayor and other otllces in the city's government. As early us 7:30 the citizen com menced to assemble and by the ap pointed hour, 8 o'clock, the spacious hall was crowded to the doors, fully 150 standing and many remaining out in the ball, unuMe to gain admittance. The' meeting was called to order by P. II. Kariy. I'pon motion, James Frawley was chiMten chairman, and N. K. Franklin was selected as secretary. M. I). Ituttsiter moved the nomination of lion. Sol Star, for mayor, by accU- mat ion, and scarcely had he concluded when fully a scorn of seconds arose from the throng. The motion waa presented and carried by a vociferous chorus of 'uye' that echoed through the hall. There was not a dissenting voice. There were calls for "Star." apewh," but the recipient of the ova tion was not present and a committee of three was appointed to encort Mr. Star Into the meeting. ilermun 111 hod was nominated a city treasurer and P. II. Early, the present lncunilH.-ut for city Justice of the peace, without opposition. Representative of the different ward announced that it was preferable to hold ward meetings and select their candidates for council men in that manner. The meeting consented to this. The citizen's of the First ward will hold their meeting oMnday evening, and the others will be announced throiiKh the paiers. Mr. Star appeared at this Juncture and elUtwed his way through thecrowd to the platform, amid deafening cheers. Mr. Star bowed In graceful acknowledgement to the compliment bestowed and when order was restored, madeona of his characteristic bright addresses, and for a few moments held the closest attention. lie expressed bis gratefulness for the nomination and felt honored by the manifestations of appreciation and confidence in him. The largo attendance evinced the Interest tho people feel In the election. He would not on thla occasion define his policy but promised that he will be heard dur ing the campaign. A happy thought occurred to someone, who suggested that Inasmuch as the women have votes for the election of treasurer and members of the school board, no action be taken at thla meeting with regard to nomlnatloa of such officials, but that the women be invited to attend a convention at a subsequent period. It was decided to meet at the city hall next Saturday evening, and an earnest Invitation be extended to the women to attend. In this the assemblage exhibited not only good Judgment but gallantry as well. MEADE COUNTY BOND CASE. The alternative writ of mandamus Issued by the cir 'It court In the Meade county defaulted Interest case, made returnable yesterday, was argued before Judge Moore yesterday, by C. C. Polk, states' attorney of Meade county, asslKted by W. U McLaughlin, for that litigant, and States' Attorney WII-son for Iawrence county. The question was argued at length, Meade county endeavoring to avoid the payment ol the sum claimed by I.wrence county to be due. Judge Moore granted a peremptory writ against Jacob Kefller, treasurer of Meado county, requiring him to pay tho defaulted Interest on the 5 per cent bonds in quest Ion, held by ltwrencc county, out of the moneys In his hands for that purpose. Treasurer Keflltr gave notice of an appeal to the supremo court. CIIlCflT COURT. The Jury in the case of John R. Wll son vs. City of Deadwood, which was a suit to recover $2,000 damages allegel to have been sustained by reason of the city grading Centennial avenue, neces sitating the plaintiff building a new stone wall In front of his property, yesterday morning returned a verdlrt In favor of plaintiff and allowing him M)0 damages.

Consultation tree at Olllmore house, Wednesday, April Ith from 1 to I p. m. The rongrelo'.al elections of 1894 will be fought out on the lines of the campaign of 1896, when the people Judged wisely and well, as has been demonstrated by experience. The people are not likely to change their minds when there Is so much Justification of their former conclusions. The Various Shafts in Two Bit District Show Good Indict tions of Ore Bodies. Rumored That SMiciout Ore was Struck in Hardin Shaft. The Yankee Boy. Jamea Duffy was in from Two Ult yesterday and has It to say In regard to the affairs of the Two lilt T-Jwnalls company, that everything Is prosper ous. The cafe haa been a success beyond expectation and the hotel is crowded past Its capacity. The shaft of the Oreat Eastern Mining company la now down about ttO feet There are strong- reason for believing that they are close to a body of ore, as the shaft, both In appearance and composition, Is exactly similar to tho formation found Immediately above the vein of pyrlttc or uncovered In the original Hardin shaft. The Chicago and Two Bit shaft has reached a depth of 260 feet and is still sinking through a sand rook. Judging from the location of the abaft and the Indication of the leads In the Two Bit dlatrk-t. It la expected that It will Oe necessary to go to a depth of from 350 to COO feet The Oreat Northern Mining company have been retarded In the progress of their work owing to the extreme hardness of the rock through which their shaft Is being sunk. Though every means Is being used to hurry the work their progress la necessarily alow. They are down 110 feet. John Oliver, superintendent for Mr. Barrett at the National Bonania mine, Two Bit, Is rapidly pushing work and having good euocess In sinking the shaft, considering the nature of the rock through which they are passing. It is a hard and solid porphyry and extremely difficult to handle. Two shifts of eight men each are at work, and the shaft has reached a depth of 130 feet. There la a fairly well substantiated rumor afloat to the effect that shortly before Jamej D. Hardin left for the et tt, on his last trip, a surprise was unearthed In the shape of the Hardin Mine and Manufacturing company. It s stated that In the east drift, and a short distance from the shaft, a cross cut was made and that to the south a body of high grade siliceous ore was discovered. If It Is true, It makes the Hardin mine a unique proposition, with paylrg bodies of pyrltlc and sill' ccous ores In sight at the same time. The machinery for a new hoist haa been ordered by the Deadwood and De troit company for the Pat Smith ground. It was Frank Lanahan, not Hanford, who was elected financial secretary ot the Miners' Union. Pat Smith donated a lot In Dublin and some money for the erection of a union hall. YANKEE BOY. John McLaughlin came In from Car- Donate Camp yesterday, brlnglng.wltb him about 1.000 pounds of ore from the Yankee Hoy property upon whlcn be will make a thorough mill test As says have been had showing the ore to carry as high as 40 per cent lead and about 110 In gold and silver. A fine ledge of this ore has been exposed by the development work recently done. CONCENTRATES. John Mauss has bought from W. H Lancaster and 0. F.

Jackson, baa received a United States patent for the Diamond lode, In the .Bear gulch district The Oolden Hill company's shaft In the Two Bit district la down 165 feet, and Is approaching the ore xone rap Idly. A small pocket of siliceous ore was struck Wednesday, lying In the shales. THE CLEOPATRA. R. B. Hughes, superintendent of the Cleoitra Mining company, returned yesterday from the ivroperty, which Is situated on Squaw creek, about a mile above the mouth of the gulch. Mr, Hughes haa put a crew of miners at work sinking a new prospecting shaft and as soon a It gets fairly started will put on da ytnd eight shifts. Hs thinks quartslte will- be reached within 150 feet below the surface. The shaft Is being sunk about 160 feet down the hill from the old workings, where a good body of ore was opened. A BIO JUDOMENT. J. Itasseltlne Carstalrs and Mr, Goodwin arrived yesterday from New York, and will reman, a few days on important mining business.

"Sir" Members in Congress on Nettles end Naval Affairs Want to Gst Loose. Washington, April 1 Special to tho Pioneer-Times: Another day of anx iety, suspense and uncertainty and the Spanish-CubsB question, war or no war with Spain, is no nearer to a solu tion than It was twenty-four hours ago. Spain asks until April 15 to answer thr demands of ths administration and ohe president asks until Tueeuay tn submit his forthcoming message to congrees, promised to be eent in Mon day. It Is generally admitted here now that the wily Spaniard, with less regard for fairness, has beaten ths United States In ths gams ot diplomacy and this humiliating fact makes the "war" members of congress aU the more eager for a test ot warfare. They say that this does not change ths situ ation and war wtll be declared as soon as the president's message Is received.

Special to the Plonecr-Tlmes: The senate committee on foreign affair was slow again today In getting to work. The lethargy was due to tho fact that In view of communications from President Me-Klnley of a very satisfactory character the committee was desirous of waiting on the exccutl'-e. At 12 o'clock, while the committee was still In session, word was received that 8 pain had practically rejected the demand., of the United States. The senate convened, and It was agreed to adjourn over rn-tll Monday, which means that no mes sage will be received until that time. A committee waited on the president and informed him that unless some thing was done of a definite nature by that time congress wou'td be compelled fo act Spain Refuses. Washington, April 1.
