A new marble ledge has been found
on the property of the Spokane Marble
company at Milan, Wash. The new
quarry ls situated about 800 feet distant from the old workings, and from
the surface Indications there Is any
amount of marble, and that of a good
quality. The color ls the same as the
■Italian marble. It is not so dark as
that in the other quarry, so that the
company will now be, ablo to fill any
kind of an order. The stone takes on
a beautiful polish and Is of the color
most commonly ln use. The new find
will be a great addition to the worth
of the quarry.

There are indications that there will
shortly be-a renewal of activity in var
loua properties in the Slocan.
The Rambler-Cariboo has resumed
dividends, and has declared its fifth
dividend of 1 cent a share to be paid
August 30.
C. R. Hammond of Rossland, B. C,
says that work on a gigantic scale Is
to be resumed on the Black Bear property In tbat camp.
The Valentine group at Four Mile
creek In the Slocan, including the
Freeport, the Freehope and the Free
niont. ls being developed with encouraging results.
On account of the recent rich strike
ln the Ymlr mine, Ymir camp is attracting considerable attention and a
number of mining men and prospectors
have been visiting the camp.
There is excellent reason to believe
that the completion of the lead refinery in Britiah Columbia will mean a
cut of at least $3 a ton in the present
smelter rates," said J. Roderick Robertson, president of the British Columbia Mineowners association, while in
Northport recently.
•Work has been started on the surface for the main flve compartment
shaft to be sunk on the Victoria by
the Granby Consolidated company.
Some time ago the connection between
the working of the Old Ironsides and
' the Knob Hill was completed, giving
a continuous line of ore 2500 feet long,
running from the.north line of the Old
Ironsides workings through the Aetna
to the south line of the Knob Hill
workings. The 200 Toot level of the
Old Ironsides was connected with the
200 feet level of the Knob Hill by drift
Ing and a raise. The completion of
this raise and the consequent connection of the properties greatly facilitate
the operations of both mines. But
. this Ls not all. The raise refefred .to
, < i ' ls to be continued to the surface, aWiI
when It meets the men working from
the surface, will be the nucleus of the
main working shaft of these properties.
This main shaft will be 10 by 30 feet In
the clear.when finished, and will be
equipped with all tbe latest Inventions
known to mining engineering, not only
for the economical handling of ore, but
for the safety of the workmen. A pipe
line has been ran to tbe top of the
new shaft ln order to furnish power
to facilitate tbe sinking now being carried on there.
MINING NOTBS.
About 15 men are at work at the
Weber mine on Lake Pend d'Orellle,
Idaho.
The Cashier mine at Lakeview, Idaho, and owned by Spokane men, is soon
to be a shipper.
Tyson, Idaho, ls to have a stamp mill.
This Is the decision arrived at by the
owners of various free milling prospects.
A considerable portion of the machinery for the compressor and mill at
Wauconda, near Republic, is at Midway, B. C.
Tbe Tacoma smelter ls making preparation to handle a considerably larger
tonnage of copper orea from Alaska
and from the coast of British Columbia. The new copper plant now under
way will give an additional tonnage of
800 tons per day.
Frederick Burbldge, who for some
yearn haa been manager of the Bunker
Hill k Sullivan company, operating at
Wardner, Idaho, has resigned the management, and A. Burch, late superintendent, succeeds him. Mr. Burch In
turn Is succeeded by T. Slmmonds, formerly the mine foreman.
John W. Messner, secretary of the
Hoosler Boy Oold Mining company,
states that the company la meeting
with much success In. development
work In the Buckhorn group of'mines,
20 miles north of Bonner's Ferry Idaho, tbat they are now building a thoroughly equipped 20 stamp mill at the
camp.
Tho famous Continental, which
ranks among the most widely known
mines of Northern Idaho, will soon Join
the shipping lint. For 10 years the
mine has been tied up with litigation,
but control of the property has at last
been secured by A. Klockman of Rossland, who has been allied with the Continental through all its romantic history..
The Bunker' Hill trawmay cable,
which extends across the town of Wardner, Idaho, broke recently, letting the
heavy ore buckets fall to the ground.
Several of the buckets fell on the
streets, but did no damage. The mlie
was shut down flve or six days as a
consequence. Vetlo Wilson was quite
seriously bruised by the heavy tram
cable falling on him while he was assisting to draw it in.
M. O. Reed, general manager of the
Inoa Mining company, has received re
turns from a shipment of several tons
of ore sent to the American Stilting
k Refining company's smelter at Omaha, Neb. The ore was taken from the
Mineral World, the leading claim of
tho company's group on Snake river,
ln the Seven Devll3 mining tJlstrict,
120 miles up the river from Lewiston,
Idaho. The returns from the smelter
show $30. (ia in silver; $S ln copper,
and $4 Ir. gold.
, W. A. Clark is preparing to run a
long tunnel from the Beaver side to
tap the Sunset ledge, surveyors being
now up there to decide upon the mo3t
advantageous point to start it. The
Sunset and Gold Bug were two of the
flrst claims located on Sunset peak, the
Sunset having the greatest surface
showing of any claim in the Coeur
d'Alenes, Its ore body being visible for
several miles as It runs down the steep
side of tho mouatailn, while the Oold
Bug was located to cover the same
ledge east from the summit of the peak.
An order and temporary Injunction
restraining tho strikers at Northport,
Wash., from attempting to interfere
with the employment of non-union men
In the Northport smelter was signed
last week by Judge Hanford of the
United States circuit court. The oVder
is sweeping in ilts terms, and prohibits
the strikers, their agents and representatives from attempting in any manner
to interfere with the company or by
threats, force or persuasion to prevent
any employe of the comnuny from going to work. The injunction Is made
returnablejn Spokane September 18.
An execution was issued recently
against the Wallace Mining company,
owner of the Black Cloud mine and
mill, for $79,870.09 on account of a suit
for that amount brought by James
Viles. Jr., wherein judgment was confessed. It is understood that It 13 a
means adopted for disposing of the
Wallace Mining company's title to the
property, after which a new company
will be formed that will become the
owner of both the holding.; of the Wallace Mining company, and also the California mine. The two properties lie
together at Monarch, three miles up
Nine Mile creek from Wallace, and negotiations looking to their consolidation have been pending for a long time.
OREGON   MINES.
The big ledge has been struck on the
Climax property, near Granite. C. R.
Aldrin, the man who Ant wired the
strike on the famous Golden Fleece
mine, is the engineer for the Climax,
and recently he wired that the vein had
been encountered in the crosscut.
The Alamo mine Is located half a
mile from the town of Alamo and Is
developed by about 1200 feet of tunnel,
shaft and winze. "We are at present,"
said Mr. McGuigan. the manager, "ra3i-
ing to the surface from the 300 foot
level." The district not only will be,
but ls, a marvelous gold producing district. Values increase sieadily with
depth and the ore bodies widen. The
gold remains free as far as depth has
yet been obtained.    ,
The largest mining deal of the season In Baker City was closed recently
when the California was sold. The
owners were Hpnry Cable, Johanna Cabell, Bessie F. Cabell and W. F. Cabell,
members of the two families who were
the founders of ' the now celebrated
Cable Cove district, above Sumpter.
The purchaser was the Turnagaln Arm
Gold Mining company, having offices
in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago,
Boston and St '_ouls. The deal includes several claims adjoining the California, and the consideration paid for
tho entire property was $60,000. The
California mine ia one of the best
known properties In eastern Oregon,
and is an old shiper with a romantic
history. The ledge was located In 1873
by Henry Cable and J. B. Cabell, and
was relocated by them In 1877. Ever
since then, through all the vicissitudes
of fortune attending the prospector
and discoverer, they have been ln control of the property and have developed
it as best they could by shipping ore
under the greatest difficulties and making a profit under condlftons that
would now seem Impossible. The ore
is base and by smelter returns runs
rfom $26 to $500 to the ton. Altogether
there have been 3000 feet of development work done on the property.

with the lloers, the London correspondent of tho Tribune says:
lli,. statement made by Mr. Cham-
berlaln in the house of commons Recently with regard to the war in
South Africa was received with loud
,1,, era from his supporters. The
prompt action of tbe government In
telegraphing General Kitchener that
all Boers guilty of killing natives cm-
ployed hy the British forces were to
.,,,iii.i Uie death penalty is generally
approved, ulthoiigh sonic people nl
f0Ci ,,i believe It. will lead to further
hai Inn Hies by the Hoers toward anv
while prisoner that may fall into their
bands,
in any case, the policy of leniency
on ihe part of (ieneral Kitchener has
become a thing of the past, and
armed Boera will In future be treated
us brigand* There is much bitter
discussion lu and out of parliament
hut the most reasonable view is thut
tin guerrilla warfare has reached the
sum- nf demoralization where Boei
commanders can not be controlled by
either (Ieneral Botha or Mr. Kmgei,
It has been expected from the outset
by South Africans that the linul stage
of the campaig i • 'mid be characterized by acts oi ueaperatlon on the
Boer side. So intense is the desire
to have the campaign finished that
even tlie atrocities WO Id be welcomed
by many If they eiuld be convinced
that these were i.gns that the end of
a di [ilorube war w .:_  in sight.

Moscow, Idaho, Aug. 5.—About 8:30
Sunday morning William Steften,
while apparently insane, shot and Instantly killed Dr. W. W. Watklns, a
moment, later shot Georgy V. Crelgh-
lon In tho right arm, and just a few
minutes afterwards shot and seriously
wounded Deputy Sheriff W. B. CoqI,
who was endeavoring to urrest him.
He then started to ride io hiis mother's place, a mile east of the city, when
he was halted by Sheriff Collins. Stiffen shot at the officer four times, and
finally escaped on foot, the sheriff
shooting Steffen's horse. Steffen ran
I to his mother's house in which he took
refuge, and for two hours held a
crowd of more than 50 men armed with
rifles at bay. Finally the crowd made
a rush on tho house, and on entering
found Steffen's dead body lying ou the
floor In an upstairs room. He had been
shot In the left leg below the knee,
the bones of the leg being broken. The
wound had been inflicted while Steffen was down stairs, and he had then
crawled to the flight above, where he
had been shot through tho left breast,'
inflicting an almost instantly fatal
wound. . |
Prom   all that can be learned, the '
shooting was entirely unprovoked. The '
shooting of Dr. Watklns was witnessed
by a  number of ladies.' Mrs.  W.  A.
Simpson, who saw the shooting, states i
that aliout 8:30 she noticed Dr. Wat-'
kins driving down First street towards
the business part of town.   He had just
crossed Jefferson street when Sfeffen
rode rapidly up that tftreat and called
out, "Hello. Doctor!" In a loud voice'
Dr. Watkins pulled up h!s horse and j
began to speak t.o Steffen, when the
latter presented a short revolver and
shot, the muzzle of the gun being almost against the doctor's body.    The
doctor gave a piercing scream and Steffen shot again, th<< doctor's body lurching forward, nnd the bufcgy horse starting at a gallop down the street.   The
shots antl  tho   .doetor's scream  were
heard by a number of people and the
horse was   seen    running down First
street, and wqs -Stopped near the cor
her of that street aud Main.    It was
found  that the'doctor was deai). the
first shot ha'vlng p'enetY'nted the body
back of the left nipple afrd pierced the
hn;irt.    The,second  shot entered  the
right temple nnd .lodged tn'the brain.
As Watkin.s' borse ran down the
street S'iiffi'n wheeled his hor.se, rodo
back lo Secon'd street, and th^n rode
east on that street. A block' further
cist StolTpn passed' foeorge V. Crelgh-
ton.and shot at him one", the bullet
striking the right hrm above the elbow
and passing directly through the arm.
Stcffeu then raced his horse ont along
Spcond street ter. another block and
then turned 'Into Third and continued
cast on that street to the city limits,
•threatening the 'i'mises along the street
with his revolver.'
ru* this time Deputy Sheriff Cool had
beep notified, and started up Third
street in pursuit. Just after passing-
,the High, school . building:,' Cool and
Steffen met, and the latter shot the
officer twice, the flrst bullet striking
the left shoulder, and, it is" thought
lodged under the shoulder-Wade.- As
Cool was falling Steffen ' shot again,
tho bullet striking the right hip.
.lust beyond the courthouse square
Steffen was accosted by Sheriff Joseph
Collins, and a running fight ensued.
Steffen shooting at the •officer four
times, missing him, while Collins took
several shots at Steffen, with equal lack
of success. The sheriff's last shot
struck Steffen's horse in the hind leg,
breaking the bones. Steffen then deserted Ms horse, and ran to Ills mother's house, which was within a quarter
ol a mile.
The house In which Steffen had taken refuge, was quickly surrounded
while Sheriff-Collins sent ln for rifles
and more men. Within an hour there
wero at least fifty men nlmtit the place,
all armed with rifles, and an attempt
was made to advance In i body. Steffen then begun shooting, the bullets
paaslng within cloM proximity to the
heads of many of the sherlTs posse.
Although the posse was driven back
to a distance of fonr or five hundred
yards, for it time Steffen continued h'.s
fusillade, which was replied to by many
of the poise and it Is thought that at
least 200 shots were fired  it the house.
After a time, no further firing being I
nliserved from the house, a part, of the
posse  were    formed   Into a charging
party, and the house was rushed. Steffen's  dead  body  being  found   In   the
upper story, lying near a window, one!
pane of wlnlch had been pierced by a
rifle bullet, while several bullot holes
wero to be observed through tho wall
Of thc room close to Where tho mad |

At the coroner's Inquest hehl on the
body of Steffen, evidence was found on :
the hotly of the murderer that leads to ,
the belief that Steffen had Intended to
kill not only Watklna but also a number of others.   Written In Ink on tho {
envelope In his pocket were the names
of W. W. Watklns, George  Lungdon, j
August Held, B. R. Jolly, all citizens
of  Moscow.    I^ingdon and  Held, who
nre In town, stato that they know of
no  reason  why Steffen should  desire
to kill them.   Jolly Is not In town. On
another envelope Steffen had  written
with pencil:    "If the Inevitable comos

On st.111 another envolopo he had
