The ore shiprisents by rail from
Three Forks during the past week
have averaged about 60 tons a day.
Double that amount might have
been shipped as it is in the ore
sheds, but mine owners are disposed to give the grangers who are
transporting the ore from the head
of Arrow Lake to Wigwam a
chance to catch up, so that future
shipments may; go right through
without delay.

On the Verge of a Sale.
New Denver, 8 p. m., Saturday,
Feb. 9th. [Special, telephoned to
the Prospector.]���Negotiations for
the sale of the Cumberland to the
Duluth syndicate, represented by
Capt. Moore, have been pending
all week and were very nearly concluded today. The sum to be paid
is not a large one considering the
location of the mine and the
amount of high grade ore in sight.
Fifteen thousand dollars of the
amount is cash and the balance
payable in six months.
