Jamison of Seattle, Wash., and W. 8. Elder of this City, of R. .f. Maloney and associates, is fast dsvsl- juins ins nena-rsrgo on tne east ana tbe Chicken lode on ths north. Several months ago Mr. Elder opened a Shoot of ore on the Chicken lods, which late explorations havs shown runs through ths American Express. The general corn of ths shoot 1s about SO degrees east of north and nearly at right angles with the claims. On ths claim adJalningtheChlokea a drift wss run toward the west to encounter the shoot found on ths Chkken.tThts drTt is about forty feet from the elds line, and at about 140 feet the shoot was encountered. A working tunnel has been driven on one elds of ths ore shoot a distance ot ISO feet and cross-cuts show the vein lo be from twenty to twenty-flte Tent wide and varying from nine to tmi feet nigh. Ths ore averages between 20 and 126 par ton, While there are streaks snd bunches of ore that assay much higher. The company Is shipping a standard gauge car, about twenty-live tons, per day, to eaitern plants and an occasion ai car to ths Klldonan. Mr. Elder Informs us that they can easily Increase the output lo forty tens per day. Up-ou one stds of ths tunnel thsy havs left a lev. amount of ore, which affords an ex. ;fclvs face for breaking. Thai will be taken down later. Tbe prospects are the shoot runs northeast throughb the remaining portion of this claim and the other three, a distance of about 1,000 feet. The west drift Isbeing extended to explore the property and is now 115 feet from its Intersection with ths main working tunnel. This west drift Is in gouge matter, which Is a very gnul Indication of ors. About 160 feet wrst of the face of this drift Is a por pavry dike that Is sxposed from ths surface and runs northeast and south-west, parallel with the formation. Mr, Elder's theory la that this dlks has cut the formation and that upon ons Bids of It another fins ors shoot will bs found. The property is being carefully and scientifically developed and win prove a bonania ons of Chess days. SOUTHERN RUBY BASIN PROSPECTS. Dr. Carpenter, general manager of tho Deadwood and Delaware Smelting snd Mining company's operations, feels ir-at'y encouraged over the splendid prospects of suocssfully developing ths ore bodies by ths work being dons In the southern part of ths Ruby Basin district The new "Data wars" shaft which Is fully two miles south of ths Dioet extreme workings of any extent. Ia now 325 feet deep snd is going down rxpidly. BKuated about 600 fset wsst snd up a gulch from ths Delaware shsft, the manager has been prospect ing with a diamond drill, which has been In operation a few weeks. Last evening the drill had attained a depth of 375 feet and the doctor believes 0"s di'lll Is working In ors as small pieces brought up out of ths hols havs the ap pearance of the characteristic ote of that district The drill has been work-liif In broken -up shales and It has been Impossible, so far, to get a soITd core. Tte formation is more or less broken and full of crevices and ths drillings disappear la the crevices. A tew mors fset will demonstrate ths nature of the stuff. At a depth of SIT feet Che drill left the porphyry and went Into ths shales, and ths ohangs alwve mentioned took place twenty-eight feet below. Two weeks ago FY! day water was en - countered in tbe Delaware shaft and H cams to st ths rate of 600 gallons a minute. There was a large station pump and a sinking, pump In tbs shaft, but thsy were Inadequate and could sot keep the water down. Aaotfcor wry large staking pump was put ta a fsw days lster and ths water is kept down, permfotlng mining operations to son- tlnus without Interruption. Ths shaft Is now bslow the porphyry and Is Into the shalss, ia whtoh good progress Is being mad. Should Dr. Carpenter succeed ta ex posing the ors bodies la tbel locality, It will be a great Chin for ths d Wit riot There 1a bo foubt that ths crfrhoots sxtend Into ths seoUon and probably for many nr.les south. Dr. Carpente: has never yet mads a mlataks la alibis xtensivs op rations, and we test cer tain he knovm what hs la doing now, Ths doctor left last evening tor Oma ha on Important business ai.d will return Tuesday. JOHN MANNING'S EXPERIENCE. John Manning, who left here several weeks sgo tor J.laska, had an experience with a tbug at Seattle recently, but cams out of ths scrap first best, as he always does. A Seattle paper ot recent date said: "John Mar. nlng, sx-shsrlff of Dead-wood, South Dakota, had a brief experience with Seattle toughs Saturday night Hs wss down on ths "dead line" when ens of ths trio accosted him for supter motley.

The chief pride of Spearflsh, the one thing around which the chief Interest centers, la the Normal school, which, with all Its advantages. Its modern fa cilities and efficient faculty still bids fair If It continues to grow as It has In the past few years, to reach a point where It will be unable to take care of the large number of students applying for admission. The toUl number enrolled this year Is 217 id the gradu ating class numbers 22, the largest class ever graduated from the school. The past year has been an unusually successful one and It Is a source of congratulation that, as far as la now known, there will be but one change in the faculty next year. Miss Qerecke, who has very satisfactorily filled the posit ton of music teacher, has resigned and her place has not yet been filled. Miss Oerecke has organized and con ducted a string orchestra which has made wonderful progress and which Is an Innovation In the school. At present the arduous task of preparing for Commencement, which will be held on the 8th, 9th and 10th of June. The op eretta "Pocahontas" Is being rehearsed by the graduating class and will be presented at Commencement. The city election Tuesday was the most exciting and hotly contested ever held In Spearflsh. The sidewalks were crowded with men, the streets were gay with carriages carrying voters to and from ths polls, and the B. A M. train from Deslwood came In at three o'clock Instead of half-past flvs to give ths train man an opportunity to rots. Ths mllltla company at Spearflsh Is wall drilled and well equipped and is ready and anxious to be called upon for action. WHEN TRAVEHMQ.

Whatever George does, be does In earnest, whether It hustling for express business or put ting the Olympic club In fine financial shape; and you Just tell your folks he played ball last night for all there was in it. Between Tom Hurley and Ben Dwinm-ll it was a stand-off as to wh would cut the most pigeon wings, and so enger was tho latter to raise his side's majority that he Insisted In run ti In K from first to second when one of his own men was calmly standing on second, valuly waiting a decent chance to go to third. The left-handed over ihe-head-flles that Frank Peck caugli were wonders, and I'ncle Anson Hlgby throuKhout the game proved worthy of his name In bis skill and zeal. Bar Itone Italdy and Paul Honorden bad i Kkatlng match on the sut of tbel troimurs In a vuln aUempt tocorral one of Nate Franklin's hot ground -s, and the carpet escaped uninjured. Ber uard Keyes ably assisted In swift run ning aud skillful fielding and proved that train dispatching and base ball work well together. Milt Wheeler did valiant service and chased high flies and low grounders with all the adept. ness he would employ in "hunting cash" If the bank bulanre at 4 p. ra was over or short. As for Blliy Mc- UiiiK'MIn, whenever he came to bat he gave a look of defiant scorn which said: "Gentlemen of tho Jury, I've often done you up when there were twelve of you; ergo, how much more should I conquer now you are but eight. Play ball!" And straightway he would lam bant the 111 about ten parasangs, and cov er two bases at a time. Charlie Gardner was there, and everywhere, and made It as hot for his opponents as he does dally for his cupol In hit assay furnace at the Klldonan office. But for all-round hard hitting, good catching. rnceful tumbling and general gt- i'lereiieae commend us to our friend M. K. Wells. Why, when he hit at the ball with one of his masterful strokes It would take the air a second to close up the streuk his but left behind it; and whi n he struck one of those movable bases lu u hurry, the way his body would stop and his feet keep on going was a delight to see. His genial good humor was the ticst part of It, and no game should hereafter be held at the Olympic without him in it John Wilson umpired the game. He afterward explained It wns his first offense. While some of his decisions did not guile agree with tho ideas of the play ers utiil the spectators, especially when B mail Would make a clr alrltio anA huve It called a ball, and a few other little things like that, still he had the happy faculty of evening up things, and tho dotfated decisions at first base for one side about offset the foul ball decisions for the other, so there was no Ill-will, The task Is a hard one at best. If any of you follows who read this think you are popular and can umpire without error. Just try It once. You will learn a thing or two. Many ladles graced the occasion, and the married ones would applaud their side and the single ones theirs, and so the friendly rlvaly went on between them when they were not themselves dodging the swift balls that came sailing toward them. Altogether it was a weft matched, well pluyed game In which good temper predominated, and was a credit to the participants and the club. We trust there will be more like It. TO MR. SPANIARD.

When you hear our mlghtycannonslng And our Catlings merrily Join In, Then you'll find we will not do a thing, But there'll be a hot time in Cuba tonight.

Nownere In the annals of mankind Can we such a dastard deed ere And, As .he Maine so sadly brings to mind. You'll atone It, Mr. Spaniard, tonight.
