There are immense quantities of ore : sight on the Cornucopia group, and I affords an excellent proposition for cyanide plant. The group is situat- near the Dakota Mining company's property, and the ore is very similar i that being worked with cyanide that company. There are seven tunnels on the ground, the longest being something over lim) feet, and the others ranging from .".u to liin feet. There is an immense quantity quartzite ore on the property, running from $S to $1- and $ir a ton. and some places as high as $:).".. In some places there are huge walls of quartzite. that would pay well to handle by some economical process ore reduction.

Copy of the Nome Gold Digger Reach- es Dead wood A ( opy of the Nome Gold Digger, a daily, ioiir-coluniu, eight-page news paper, published at Nome, Alaska, has readied Deadwood. and bears much news relating to the Alaskan sold camp. Here lire some of the it'iii. it contains: , White Silence Broken. K was a great day for Nome when, on Monday, the "white silence'" was pierced by the shrill whistle of the first outside boat in many long months, and interesting to learn that there was a big fleet of vessels at Out. h Harbor, and others en rout" here. The beef, fruit and vegetables which have arrived were especially needed The canned supplies were beeiiinini; to pall greatly on the taste. Bond Seems Big. H A. Walker and G. K.

Raymoud Rogers, who had eight pounds, was offered the latter sum for five pounds. "I would have taken $1 a pound." said je, "if I had not seen in the Gold Digger that there was a tack famine on." Beach Mining. N. N. Brown, who has returned from P coast where he was making arrangements lof "beach mining," reports between 300 and 600 men at work between here and Penny river. Eery little draw has Its quota oT men. At a point half way between here'and Penny river men have found rich streak, and are taking out from fi0 cents to $1.50 a pan.
