Conaolldatlon   In  Montana.
One of the most important mining
transactions in the history of the state of
Montana is the consolidation of Granite
Mountain and Bi-Metallic companies,
both big silver properties of Granite county, into one corporation to lie known os
the Granite Bi-Metallic Consolidated Mining company. Both boards of trustees
havo agreed to the consolidation, which
will result in the starting up of the big
properties in the near future. Under the
laws of the state of Montana it is necessary that the consolidation scheme hnve
the acquiescence of two-thirds of tho
stockholders of each company. It is said
that more than this has already been secured. An agreement signed by both
boards of trustees as well ns a circular
hnve been sent out to each stockholder
in either company. The amount of the
capital stock of the new company will be
$10,000,000. divided into 1,000,000 shares
of the par value of $10 n shnre; and nil
of the stock is to be issued nnd delivered
ns fully paid and non-assessable, to the
stockholders of the Granite Mountain and
Hi Metallic companies in the proportion
of two-fifths (or 400,000 share) to the
stockholders of the Granite Mountain, and
three-fifths to the stockholders of Ihe l)i-

Lone Tnnnel on Mammoth Mine.
i The survey for the new tunnel of the
Mammoth is now being mnde. It has gone
fur enough to know that its length will
i approximate 4000 feet, und in thnt distance it will cut at least three ledges
I besides the one t n which the Mammoth
is located, and the whole distance will
be through ground which Ihe Mammoth
people own. By many, the Mammoth is
considered the greatest mine in the Coeur
d'Alenes, there being but two others
which can possibly dispute its right to
thut position, and should anything new
of value be encountered in running the
new crosscut tunnel, it will easily be the
greatest. With nearly n mile on the main
lend, and several side claims covering
smaller leads; with the longest continuous
ore chute yet uncovered in the district;
with the highest average grade of ore on
the South Fork; with an ore chute that
produces a higher percentage of shipping
ore than any other, nnd with n tunnel
cutting the lend 2000 feet below the apex
it will Im a property thnt would coin-
mnnd attention anywhere in the world.

Situation   Has   All   Favorable   Feature* of Some Time Past.
New York, March 20.—Bradst reefs
The aggregnte volume of the country's
business continues sufficiently large to allow of favorable comparisons with past
periods alike in this and preceding years.
Aside from a quieting demand at a few
leading eastern markets where uncertainty as to tlie outcome of foreign com-
mlicntions is advanced as a reason for unwillingness to embark in new business,
the situation is one possessing nearly all
of the favorable features noted for some
time past. The best reports ns to distribution in leading lines come from the center west and the northwest. Favorable
weather has improved the distribution of
dry goods, clothing, millinery, building
materials, agricultural implements and
nearly all other products forming staple
; articles for consumption among the puis
i porous farming community.
The movement of iron and steel is spc-
| cially large, but without effect on prices,
j which arc generally firmly held.    Some
! slight advances in pig iron, in fact, have
! been a feature of the week at some mar-
; kets.    Southern iron manufacturers nre
; active, and fruit and vegetable shipinc-ls
: promise alike to be early snd heavy. Distributive trade is reported increasing at
,tho northwest, navigation  is practically
| open on the lakes, and the llrst of April
I will witness s general movement rf craft.
rOther favorable features of the country s
{general trade situation nre summed up in
| liberal shipments of leading cerenls. un-
precedented totals   of   export   at   New
i ork. fewer business failures and slightly
larger bank clearances.
Wheat exports are smaller thnn last
week, but considerably larger than in corresponding periods of preceding years, aggregating 3.02d,584 bushels, against 4.I'M.

last year, 1,.'-0_.000 bushels in IWMi and

Boston. March 22.—Roland Worthing-
ton, the veteran journalist, is dead at his
home in this city, nged 81 years.
Mr. Worthington entered the newspaper
business as an employe of the counting
room of the Boston Daily Advertiser.   In
! 1848 he took charge of the Boston True
] filer.    When  Daniel  Webster made his
famous speech nt Mnrshflcld. in August,
1848, Mr. Worthington published a verbatim report and had it sold by the news
jboys in the streets, on innovation which
called down the severe criticism of the
other   Boston  papers.    He sold   n  large
number of copies.
Mr. Worthington wns one of the. earliest
of the free soilers of Massachusetts and
was one of those who foresav.' nnd witnessed the conflict When the republican
party was orgiini/eil he nt once joined il
nnd carried his paper with him. In 1880
his paper wns the first to suggest the.
nomination of John D. Ixmg as successor
to ('overnor Banks. He was opposed by
the other republicuu papers of Boston but
his candidate was nominated and elected.
In 1883 he insisted thnt fleorge D. Hob-
inson was the wisest nomination that
could be made ngainst General Butler nnd
hero he won ngnin. President Arthur
tendered him the office, of collector of the
port in  1882.    Worthington retired from
the nctive management of the Traveller
in 1800.

The Early Hush of Eager Goldieekers
Having Congested the Passes. Other
Routes Will Have to Be Opened.
Sped.I Correspondence.]
Although the rush to Alaska may bo
said to have only just begun, a condition of affairs bus already developed in
Dyea and Skngwny Which promises to
disappoint the expectations of thousands of eager gold seekers. The trails
across the Chilkoot and White pns.es
aro practically impassable because of
the frequent and severe storms, and
will not be in good condition until
about the first of April. The result is
that thousands of men and thousands
of tons of supplies and mining outfits
are crowded together on this side of
the summit and have already reached
such number and quantity as to create
a blockade.
It has   been   generally   understood
that it was foolish  to go up to that
country earlier than  March  with the
expectstiou of  crossing the passes, and
that one who did so would simply subject himself to a long wait, to needless
hardships and   possible  sickness while
consuming supplies  which   should be
j kept for service in the gold fields.    Not-
I withstanding this fact, travel begun in
I January and   bus   continued   through
February, an  average of a steamer a
day having landed  men and freight at
I Dyea and  skagway.    Those who took
; this  early  start  did   so  because tliey
j feared n blockade and were  anxious to
i get over the summit, expecting to wait
! at the lakes for the opening of tbe river
I to    navigation.      The   blockade   tbey
I hoped to escape has  come  ii|>on them
and   they  are   not  over the  summit.
Many  have spent a month of hardship
j and   toil  and are   worse off because oi
! it than are the newest arrivals
There are not less than 20,000 people
I in Dyea and Skagway encamped along
! the trails ns far as the weather conditions have -H-tmitted them to advance,
only a few miles at the most. The
quantity ol supplies, outfits, bouts, ma-
! chineiy, etc., averages not less than a
i ton to each man. This average will
; lie kept up during the month of March,
1 mid by the first nf April, when the
! work of getting over the summit will
I begin in earnest, a moderate estimate
' of the number of men and quantity of
I freight llial will be assembled there is
j 60,1.00 persons and 50,000 tons of
j height.
The only thing that has Ih-<-h nccom-
: pli.-hed on the Skagway trail to mnke
it more passable than it was last sum-
i mer has been the building of some
; small bridges, and some improvements
1 on the mad leadingont from Skagway.
i There has been a tramway project tin-re
i lint no progress lias been made with it.
i The indications are that the Skagway
trail will not be materially Iwtter than
1 it was last summer, when it was block-
! sided nnd rendered practicaliy Impas-
; salile by 1,000 or 4,000 people and their
| outfits. Of course, as long ns the snow
! lusts in the spring the trail will tie a
j better one than when the traveler has
, encounter mud and lioulilers, which
, were such an obstacle a year ago.
As for the trail from Dyea, which is
. the one experience has proved to he
j the best, two tramways are are under
construction for the triins'sirtution nf
goods. One of these has a tram railroad from Dyea to the base of the summit ridge, ami an electric bucket system across the summit tu Lake L'nule-
niaiin. The other has (wo tramway
cables leading from tha first and second divides and ending at Lake Linde-
iioinii. Connect ion between the last of
these and Dyea will be made with
wagons and pack animals. Neither
Ol these enterprise is ready for operation, and the possibilities are that tiny
will not be before the first of April.
When in complete operation, their combined capacity will not exceed 400 tons
per day. Assuming that hy the use
j of pack animals 100 tons per day could
be taken over the White pass from
Skngway, this leaves the total capacity
of all facilities provided for both passes
at 500 tons |ier day. This means ion
days for transporting 50,000 tons thai
will he accumulated there bv the firt-t
of April, in other words, accumulations could not lie cleared away liefore
tbe middle of June. The probabilities
are, however, that during the months
of April and May an equal quantity of
new freight would demand attention.
In this calculation no allowance is
made for the freight which could he
taken on sleds by individuals and by
the aid of dogs. This would be inconsiderable. In faot, with ench a
mass Of humanity Snd of goods, it
would lie almost impossible for freight
to be moved at all on those narrow
portions of tbe trail where the right of
way would bo the subject of dispute
nnd contention. If people interfered
witli each other Inst fall so as to meats
a blockade on both trails with less than
6,000 people attempting to go over, it
does not require n grent flight of imagination to see the utter blockade thnt
would be created by 50,000 people.
One who intends to go to Alaska may
well stop and consider what his chance's
are likely to be in such a mob, and
whether he would not do better to seek
some other route or some other objective point than tlie Klondike region,
Of course, transportation facilities from
the coast ports to Alaska have been
provided for Dyen and Skagway, but
doubtless as soon ns this blockade so
develops that intending gold hunters
demand to be taken somewhere else,
steamers will leave the Dyea and Skng-
way routes and seek other ports, snub
as Copjier river and Cook's inlet. At
these pines* there is mom for all. No
nanow canyon   trail  confines tbe gold
hunter to a particular route, but there
is opportunity to spread ont over «
wide expanse of country, now praotic
ally unknown, but reported to be rich
in gold. There aro said to be low
passes through the mountains from
both Copper river nnd Cook's inlet,
leading over to the Tannnn and to the
head waters of Birch creek, by which
the now promising gold fields on tlio
American side of the line may lie more
easily reached thnn by the route across
the Ohilr-oot pass and down tho lakes
and rivers. Tlie government is now
fitting out an expedition for Capper
river. Undoubtedly those routes will
lie opened up the present season by
prospectors even should not the grout
stream of travel be turned in that direction.
There are already indiciuions of a
desire on the part of gold hunters to
abandon thoir idea of going to Dyea
and Skagway, and to stike out for the
Copper river and Cook's inlet. Bo-
yond doubt this tendency, will rapidly
increase ns the crowded condition of
the passes becomes better known. At
present the only facilities for reaching
Copper river nnd Cook's inlet is the
United States mail boat operated by
the Pacific Const Steam Whaling Company from Snn Francisco, the two
small steamers now on the route from
Portland to Copper river, and the small
steamer rnuning from Port Townsend
! to Copper river. These steamers me
nlrendy inadequate to meet the demand
; nnd doubtless more will soon lie put
| on the route.
Attention lias also been turned in the
: direction of the route by Fort Wrung"!
'. and   Stickeen   river. Telegraph   creek
' nnd   Teslin   hike, hut as yet, facilities
have   not     been    provided.       Several
! small   river   steamers  are being  con-
i structed for the  Stickeen   river, to ply
between Fori. Wrangel  and   Telegraph
' creek, which is tlie point nf disemtmrk-
; aiion for   the  overland   journey of the
J 150  miles  to  Lake   Teslin.    On   this
! stretch of 150 miles it is proposed by a
J Canadian company to construct a rail-
' road the   present  year  under a special
; grant from the Dominion parliament ot
'. 20,000  acies of   land   per  mile,   and
! the time  set for its  completion is  the
, first of  September.    It  is   thus  seen
'. thnt, for this season at least, only such
travel  can go over the  Stickeen route
as  can he  bandied   by   puck   animals,
, nnd this, of course, cannot la* very extensive.      Possibly   seveial     thousand
people   will   attempt   this   ronte, with
the probability that a large   portion of
them   will   make  a   failure   of   their
effort.     Should   this   railroad   be built
and a sufficient light  draught -teaniei
be placed on Lake  Teslin   mid   I loot».
linquii river, in another year the Stickeen route would be the favorite one.
Undoubtedly a great ill any who intend to go to Alaska are waiting to take
the ocean and river route during the
summer months. Ib-ie theie is as
much uncertainty as on the passes.
The facilities have yet to lie provided.
Possibly as many as 60 small steamers
are under Construction or have been
purchased for use on the Yukon the
cniniiig summer; but navigation of that
river     is    expensive   and   dangerous.
Channels are narrow and tortuous ami
known only to n few people. Fuel is
m-i\ difficult to procure, and it is understood that the companies already
operating on the river have secured all
that can he had for several hundred
miles from the mouth of this stream.
These companies will not take miners'
outfits, prefrcrring to lake in goods for
their own stores and sell them to
miners after they get three. Consequently miners wishing to take outfits
will have to depend on independent
IkiiiIs which promises to la- h very un-
ceitain reliance. Certainly, one going
by th it route should not undertake it
unless the transportation company contracts with him to carry him clear
through to his destination. This, however, is a matter about allied more
will be known a few mouths later. As
stated above, the natural outcome of
the present condition of nffairs would
be the opening up of new routes and
new objective points for the thousands
who will be disappointed in their expectation of getting over the pa*«us,
and nf getting into the Yukon cnuntiy

The Alaska Mining Itecord, published at .luiineau, iu its latest issue
has the following items brought out by
recent arrivals fiom the interior:
Messrs. .1. D. Douglass und D. Uoyle,
who left Fort Yukon iu December, nre
the latest arrivals from the interior.
These gentlemen made a short stay nt
Dawson City, leaving that place iu
January. They bring tlie latest news
from the gold fields, mid while nothing
stuilling bus occurred, I hey re-Kirt a
steady prosperity at the diggings, and
anticipate that the spring clemi-tip will
aggregate a sum not last (ban 115,000,-
000. Al Mr. Royle puis it, the yield
last year was somewhat moro than $2,-
000,000; at least 1(1 times the number
of men inc'wniking this winter and the
output the coming spring cannot be less
lhan the sum liiiincil, after making all
allowances and observing all due i'oii-
■i-rvBt'sm in making the estimate.
Almost every claim being worked in
tlie Klondike district is turning out
fully as well as was nnticipnted.
Hunker creek iu particular is making
rtoll returns, while Eldorado, Honanza,
Sulphur nnd Dominion creeks are
holding their own.
Dawson Oily is reported quite and
orderly, with little to break the winter
and monotony. The dmicehoiises and
gambling places furnish the only excitement.
The opinion prevails in Dawson that
tho regulation providing for the collection nf royalties will fail of enforcement, the idea being hinted upon the
fact that iu the annual licenses issued
to miners no mention is mnde of the
royalty regulation. This position,
however, is regarded by many ns untenable and there is littlo doubt but the
miner will be promptly mulcted In the
10 per cent royalty which the regulation
imposes. i'

The positive declaration of the Army

showing that the Maine was blown up by
a government submarine mine deliberately exploded by Spanish officials has attracted much comment in Washington.
In Conner*, ut Ive and Reliable.
Army und navy officials regard the Register as very conservative and reliable in
its statements, and do not believe it could
have made this assertion without the very
best evidence that it was correct. It
agrees with the daily press reports from
Havana, Key West, and Washington. It
has been repeatedly denied at tho White
House and Navy Dejiartment that there
had been any ofHciul communication from
the board of inpuiry.   That is regarded as

He had reason to suspect treachery. He

Hoise, Idaho, March 20.—A wholesale
escape of convicts from the penitentiary
occurred shortly after 1 o'clock Friday.
The quarry fning of 13 overpowered Guard
Jackson, took his gun nnd fled to the
hills. The *wity marched Jackson with
them a mile. Then they let him go and
scattered. A trusty named Young witnessed tlie escape und hurried down to
the prison and gave the alarm.
A short time after the men hnd returned to work after the noon hour the guard
stationed himself a short distance from
them, as was his custom. He was armed
with his rifle. He hnd not even suspected an attempt at escape, and he was over-
•lowered so suddenly tl"* t he scarcely realized what had happened until he was
absolutely in the power of the convicts.
Cowen, who is considered the bud man of
tlie gang, was the first to --ounce down
upon the guard, nnd he was instantly surrounded by four or five men with upi-uis-
ed sledge hammers, nnd in a moment Len-
vitt Reavis had the guard's gun in his poo
sesion. Two of the escapes returned voluntarily, saying they went along only
through fear. Six more were captured
before   dark.
Jackson hns refused to make any statement about the manner in which he wns
caught. It is snid that a convict hurt
his hand. When Jackson undertook to
bind it up with his handkerchief the prisoners closed in nn him nnd got his gun
before he realized whnt was taking place.
The convicts that escaped were: William llluek. Shoshone county, sentenced to
12 years for assault with intent to commit murder; Zell Morris, 1.,-inlii county,
11 years for robbery; Arthur Fountain,
rolored, Lntnh county. 20 months for selling liquor to Indians; Albert Randall.

The work of the avenging angels wus complete.
A party of American prospectors, returning to civilization, stumbled by accident upon the camp of the outlaws, several days luter nnd counted the dead.

"We are waiting for the report of this
committee of inquiry, which is supposed
to lie hard at work probing for the facts

I mean thn democrats of the house. We
are not pressing matters because we want

want to know whether it is going to find
the Spaniards guilty or blameless and we
want to know other things in this connection.
"What the administration proposes to
