He says lie found seven feet of ore ill
the bottom of lhe shaft ut lhe Le Hoi,
which is down S50 feet, and that the
wiii-kings show thnt the ore hotly from
bottom to top has been from seven to
thirty feet wide.
In the Wur Eagle he found in Hie

"The Crown Point shows a large
outcrop for 100 feel, mid Unit from a
shaft not 50 feel deep lliere bits been
taken over 100 tons of ore, which is
now on the dump, iind Ihal the vein
is from Ave to nine feet wide.
"Tlie It. E. Lee and Maid of Erin
have well-dell tied veins whicli are
opened up iu a IHlinbiT of places, and
for the amount of development work
look exceedingly well."
Mr. Sltydnn went ou and said: "I

Afler this Mr. Snyditn give llie

outline of the Kettle River country us

said iu part:
"Seven miles west of tbe North

Five miles fiirthef wost is Greenwood

imposes a lux upon mineral claims,
In some sections a good ileal of publicity lias been given to views of those
who are affected by lhe former, and iu

will be drawn in the near future in the

As (he shoes nud dies, which werei
sent, for some six weeks ago, have not
yet arrived, silence reigns  supreme
nroiind the Strathyre company's mill
at Fairview,
The developinenl of Ihe Hiiiklioin
claim, situated in Fairview camp,
moves steadily along under lhe nian-
ageinent of Mr. MuDougall, the ledge
showing constantly no improved ap'

spring by L. Bosshart and mimed the]

portion of the Greenwood townsite.
Asa result of the recent lire whieh
devastated the country io lbe neighborhood of Fairview, burning I begiuss,

The ledge where uncovered bus u

free milling character, specimens
showing quite a sprinkling of free

Great excitement was caused lasl
week by the report that Mr. Hugh
McCool, Mr. Brooks und others from
Marcus and Colville hud come up tu
Grand Prairie and thence proceeded to
stake otf llle Le Fleu.t eopper nod other
V, ell known ledges on the Reservation
At Iirsl, so rapid was the circulation
of ibe report, and so loaded down with
detail, credence was given lo it, and
lunch speculation excited us to the
possibilities of the permission to prospect, on the reserve being given. .Since
.llr. Morrison's sluge came in we have
learnt there wns no foundation fur llie
report. Indeed, we are Informed, il
would require n special act of congress
and a proclamation opening lhe reserve, signed by lhe President of the
Gutted States, to give prospectors and
others the right to locale mineral
claims across the line.
Men nre busily engaged Inking lhe

it is intended to thoroughly sample
