Sneai fish, and if is their intention to cording to an jit-knowledge authority on jreology. a country in which there would be found one of the best fields for an individual miner to do his work.' Ailing upon the repoit of this gentleman, who is quoted as an an thority, William Crizlzly resolved to try and solve the mystery which ,h hidden by encompassing rocks. To this end he outfitted for at b-ast a -o month' May in the region whi'li was so flatteringly mentioned lr. t:ie expert. The geologist claimed there was a connection between Warren's I'eak on the south, and'tle-Ii vil s Tower on the north. The (m lb ir, .111 mentioned has patience, and is jiern vering, but try as he would, he .lie;. I not II ii 1 any ( onneit nui between the two points. The formations as you approach both places are differ tin and, from every appearance, the 1 1 n 1 volcanic disturbance that oc , i . r : 1 was purely local, and r esulted in t;ic upheaval of Devil s Tower In no place did he find indications of a ':n of matter carrying ore, but he oc. a.-ionally ran across "knifeblade " veii;s of manganese, which, would as ,sa at bast $111 to the ton. but so small were they that it would cost more to get 'tint a ton of ore than it was worth. This was the only indication of mineral thut he found in the country Intervening between the two points. Mr. drizzly and his partners thoroly prospected the ground, and not a piece of float escaped theirat-tenfion. It may be that ore bodies will be found in the section of conn try described, but it will be at ii depth below the surface , that they must be exceedingly rich to pay for working. o An Advance in Silver. The silver market has improved sime the close of the fiscal year and an upward movement Is noted Two ,-ue contribute to this, the first being the demand from the Indian gov eminent, owing to an increase in coin lit'1 and in China t lie present troublous conditions in that country have stimulated the export trade anil ill uilnished the imports. I'resent hostilities in the latter country have caused some hoarding and have re strbttwl the sidling iij Kuropean wares. The Chinese banks have con stipicnt ly found themselves called upon for larger quantities of silver than usual. The second cause of the advance rising from this must be credited to the smelting trust. The American Smelting ti Kelliiing company keeps silver bullion off a weak or falling market, and in the rase spare no expense in making it on.-of the paving mines of the Carbonate district. Tlie shaft has been retini-bered for a depth of :!ol feet, and is one of the best pieces of work in the lllack Hills It is a double compartment affair and is in such a shape that it can he continued to an indefinite depth. ! StriKe on tne Fauntleroy. ('RIPIM.K CRKKK, July l'i Special. --A strike is reported this morning on the Fauntleroy at a depth of twenty feet. The ore assays about $::o to the ton The mine adjoins the Superior claim of the Anaconda. The Hio Crande sampler received a new installment of machinery this morning and nas begun work iu good earnest The capacity is now .'Put tons per da;.. The ( limax No. 2 has received new machinery and is sinking an additional 100 feet. The Mary McKinnev mine is doing some extensive development work on the fifth level. Litigation between the Climax No. 2 and t he Santa Rita will probably take place. The Climax ground ex tends over the territory claimed by the Santa Kita and trouble will in all probability follow. The Mary Group. This group of mines, situated just above Dublin, in Two Hit. and owned by Fat Smith, is now being work ed under lease by Sam Sweet, whine lease is for six months. Last week Mr. Sweet struck a large shoot of good ore, from wnich assays have been made ranging from $23 to $100 per ton in gold. There is only a small force of men at present employed on the ground, but this will shortly be increased. The ore is being shipped to the (lohten Reward smelter for treatment with very satisfactory results. It is excellent for cyaniding but the returns now received from the smelter are very satistaenry.

I'nder Colorado laws it is optional in organizing a mining corporation whether the stock shall be assessable mines and with them a force of men. who will at once commence work. (jj) CLOSING OUT SALE OF Copper Find Near Lyons. I.YO.N'S. Colo, .fuly l'i.- Special.--., great ileal of excitement was aroused yesterday over the discovery of rich copper ore up the south fork of the St Vraiu. four miles from Lyons. The discoverers of the copper are Fred Davis, editor of the Krie Revenue: Roy Davis nnd Roy Harris of this city. They claim the ore will net them about $20 per ton. Numerous prospectors are going out today and already a number of tourists are following along several small verti cals which have been exposed in the four open cuts by which the ground has been developed. f BINDER TWINE Valuable Interest Sold.

In connection with this whole matter, it is also noticed that, In the shipment of gold, that president of the company. Col. C. V Carpenter, bid tl? shares in for the company for $a7l .10. tho amount of the assessment due upon them. This assessment had been levied to pay the expenses Incident to representation work performed upon the company's ground last year. The company intends to patent its ground, and the remaining shareholders desire that it shall receive as good development as the present showing of the ground warants. This ground haa been represented for a great many years and much money spent Iu exploring it. There are numerous shoots of ore upon it and a number of fine looking verticals. It is situated in the Cartionate district and surrounded by good properties, many of which have been excellent producers. The company is not decided Just what It will do for the present, but this tug is being dune.

A mining claim is realty, and a man has a legal right to hold as many claims as he can do the required annual work upon; yet it It is not wise to grab or hold the whole countryside. That is a habit and a bad one. A locality where one man or a few men hold nearly all the claims is not sought by Investors, and wholesale claimholders thus defeat their own purpose.
