K. H. Sothern has just purchased
the American rights to Theodore Burt
Sayre's latest play, a four-act costume
comedy. Tho part to be played by Mr.
Sothern is that of an English nobleman who was as famous for his wit
and poetry as for his love of romance
and adventure. The love story of this
eccentric peer forms the basis of the
play, which is said to have strong
emotional Interest, although comedy
predominates. In addition to purchasing the play, Mr. Sothern has commissioned Mr. Sayre to write for him
a romantic drama which is to be completed by next September.

Hluliig Notes.
Curious changes occur in the char-
aster of a mine and its product. It is
a very common occurrence that a gold
mine, at depth, becomes a silver mine;
and u sliver mine runs Into a copper,
and that poor expectations run into
unexpectedly rich realizations, an Instance of which is the experience of the
Utah Consolidated; as a gold mine its
stock sold at $1.80 per share; now It Is
a copper mine and its stock sells at $30
per share.
Green McKeever has started to build
a $30,000 dredging plant at Old's Ferry
four miles east of Huntington, Oregon.
They are placing material on the
ground and will commence active operations on the boat this week. They
intend to dredge the bars of the Snake
river below Old's Ferry for a distance
of four or five miles.
A rich strike of copper ore is reported on the Highland King claim, recent
assays going $211 In gold, silver and
copper. The property Ib situated on
Diorlte creek, 28 miles from Fort
It Is announced that W. S. Stratton
has sold his famous Cripple Creek
mine, the Independence, to a company
of London capitalists. Tho price It not
stated, but ls believed to be not less
than $20,000,000.
The directors and some of the principal stockholders of the Amador Copper
Mining Company have returned to
Wallace from a visit to the company's
property, near Iron mountain. They
were so well satisfied with the prospects there that they located Ave more
claims on the same ledge, giving the
company seven quartz claims and one
placer—the latter lielng equivalent to
a good mill site.
A correspondent was up to the "Sixteen to One" near Wallace, during last
week, and found that there had been
no exaggeration in the previous reports, bnt that it was even greater
than had been represented. In fact, it
Ib unknown as yet how great lt is, as
the ledge has never been crosscut.
The largest tin mine in the world is
believed to be that on the island of 8u-
lo Urani, In the bay c' Singapore, producing monthly over i.jOu tons of tin.
Among other unique forms of gold
"mining" will appear this season a
force of miners working in diving
suits in the Sacramento river, Cal., between Redding and Kerswick.
The steady advance In the price of
materials that go Into tbe manufacture
of machinery must necessarily have
the effect of raising thc cost of this
machinery, though no particular advances nre as yet noted.
The output of Capt. DeLamar's Mer-
cur (Utah) mines, tbat has already
reached 600 tons dally, Is to be Increased to 900, and to that end the enlargement of the roasting plant is to
be commenced within a few days.
The report Is current in the copper
rottntry that the Calumet k Hecla Is
going to cease sinking and adding new
levels, and will confine its efforts to
the sloping of ground already opened.
As the report goes, the company has
enough ground opened to keep them
busy for ten or twelve years, and they
will rush production while copper is
selling at high prices. The bulls probably have lieen too enthusiastic In crediting tbe mine having enough territory
opened to last a dozen yenrs without
opening new ground. Calumet _ Hecla sends out not far from 2,000.000
tonB of rock annually. Multiply this
by 12 and It gives a total that meaus
considerable in the way of cubic feet
of ground. There Is no question but
thnt the company could Increase Its
output considerably for the coming few
years If it eared to do so, but its policy
has generally been a conservative one.

L. T. Mitchell, who has had charge
of the work of the nine Jacket mine iu
the 8even Devils district, Idaho, was in
Hoise last week. He told a most Interesting story of what has been done
there and of the showing made by the
mine. His statement discloses the
fact that thc Illuc Jacket is one of the
reniiirliiii.il' copper mines of the country. He says they drove the crosscut
tunnel 450 feet to reach the ledge, cutting the latter at a depth of 310 feet.
They found the vein to be 22 feet wide,
between well defined walls. There Is
a streak of five feet of what Mr. Mitchell terms "solid copper." The ore Is
very nearly pure metal and runs from
80 to 90 per cent copper. The remainder ol the 22 feet of tho ledge runs
from 8 to 10 per cent copper.
A gasoline hoisting engine Is being
Installed at the Ivanhoe, In the Slocan.
It will be used at the winze which is
being sunk 200 feet on the vein from
the lowest tunnel. The work on the
Ivanhoe is now 700 feet from the Apex
and ore Is showing all the way.

W. n. Kehoe, superintendent of the
Flag Hill claim, had an assay of ore
from the claim yesterday that resulted
In a value of $301.78. The assay was
made l.y H. J. Armstrong.
The tunnel on the Anaconda Is being
pushed ahead. Tho presont course of
the tunnel will bring It to the ledgo
within the next 20 feet unless It should
dip nt a much greater angle than Ir
now apparent.
The Reindeer tunnel Is evidently approaching the ledge. The water Is
coming In quite rapidly. There arc
some flno strenks of spar running
through the porphyry, that carry some
badotir «l.«f* ha.' been sunk
being crosscut. The superintendent
says that the quartz looks fine but declined to give the value of the assays.
Superintendent Ciummer of thc San
Poll states that since the completion of
the raise connecting the upper and
lower tunnel, the air is good and the
ventilation perfect. Drifting is going
on In both north and south drifts of
the lower levels. Both faces are in excellent ore. No. 1 tunnel ls being
driven ahead and will be continued until the west line of the claim ls reached.
The Golden Sunset Is now working
four men on the shaft and one on the
surface. The ore in the shaft is still
of low grade but is solid and increases
slowly In value.
In driving the tunnel for the main
ledgo on the Alice-Rureka, a fine blind
ledge was encountered. The ledge has
been penetrated for a distance of 15
feet. The ore Is of low grade, ranging
from $2.40 to $ti.80 per ton in gold.
Thomas Ryan, superintendent of the
Insurgent, has stated that he would put
a force of men at work on the shaft Immediately.
Thomas Clark Is In charge of the development work on the Surprise. The
worK is confined to the surface for the
present. Some nice looking quartz ls
being taken from the cuts. The values
are not reported.
Superintendent W. M. Plummer of
the Blacktall will set men at work
soon opening up _ new ledge on the
property. A little work was done a
short time since that disclosed a five-
foot vein of fine ore. The find Ib to be
further Investigated.
H. H. Wilmot states that the drift
that is being run west on the Palo Alto
Is carrying good ore. He says that
there is twenty-five feet of it that looks
better than did the ore in the ledge.
He is driving through what he thought
was country rock.

has been organized by a number of Spokane business men to develop the Al-
turia, In Republic camp. This property is admitted to be one of the most
promising In the camp, lying just east

1,200 feet from the great Republic
mine. A ledge has been opened up for
the entire length of the claim, from
the surface of which assays running
up to $7.45 a ton in gold have been
