The owners of  the   Eclipse   started  work   last   week   in  the old   workings  abandoned by H. T. Bragdon   when  he  had the property under  bond   some   IS  months   ago.    A   crosscut   tunned   was  driven to catch the lead by Mr Bra��'don  and drifting' on the ledge was continued  some   distance   before   the   bond   was  thrown up.    Duly zinc was encountered.  Messrs.  Allan,  Corey & Ward  started  last week to push the drift ahead,  and  had not driven more than two feet when  galena came into the face.    They  have  now a good ore shoot  showing  in   this  drift.    The ore. showing on the  surface  ie 8 inches in thickness.    The drift taps  the shoot at a depth of I GO feet,  and  at  this depth the showing is much   better.  The. ledge was crosscut  at  this  depth  and proved   to   be  about,  :���)">   feet   from  wall   to   wall   with   zinc   and   galena  scattered through il.  OiKM'ii   Oily.

In  relation to the   proposed  Silver   Mountain wagon road, lie said he felt certain  that, since the mine  owners  operating  there,   the  prospectors   and   all   other  classes who had interviewed him on the  subject,  wanted   the  road   constructed  from   Nisw   Denver,   the   government  would readily allow the grant asked for  its construction.    He would do what he  could to hasten the work,  and believed  the road would  lie built before snow  Hies.   He was glad to see the properties  on Silver Mountain turning out so well,  and predicted a  very  bright   future for  New Denver.    He further assurred the  meeting that, now that a  strong gov-  erument was in existence, the progress  and prosperity of  the  camp   would   he  greatly advanced.

Small towns  and villages, whose inhabitants think  they cannot afford lire engines or water  works, should form bucket brigades;  and isolated factories or mills, whether  they have other (ire appliances or not,  should have water-buckets and water-  barrels in easily accessible places.  But who n to convince the residents  of towns and villages of the ever present  danger of fire? Who will induce them,  apathetic as the average householder  or merchant is in such matters, to provide even the cheap and simple pail  and cask brigade for the protection of  his property? Public opinion should  be aroused to compel the supply of lire  appliances of some sort in every town,  village and hamlet. Property-owners  should insist that the councillors they  elect should s j,e to the protection of the  residents whom they represent.

But Messrs.

It is a certainty that one of the first  acts of the ex-Premier will be the introduction of some measure which will be  designed to catch the support of those-,  whose support of the government is of  a conditional character, and whose  general principles, are more in accord  with the Martin   platform.

With the advent of the: installation of  electric power it is ardently hoped, and  indeed it is a fair supposition, that the  rich ore at the deeper levels will be  extracted and the difference in the cost  of steam power and electricity is so  great, in favor of the latter, that the  low grade, ores in the upper levels may  be worked to advantage and profit.  That there is yet a great amount of ore  in the old workings is known, and that  there is ore. to the value of hundreds of  millions below the present workings is  the opinion of practical mining men.  As an instance: it may be referred to,  that at the time of the fire in the Consolidated Virginia, rich ore was being  taken from the bonanza, but at that  time the workings were bulk headed  and closed, and hav�� remained so up to  the present.

One of the earliest tunnels of any size> j
in Coloraelo was  the  Bohtail  at   Black I
Hawk, iiriven by manual labor,   iu   the ::
sixties, to open the Bobtail.     Its lene-th j
was 1,-J'iil feet, to  which   li.oOn   feet   ex-j
tension has been added, tappin»- adjoin- j
in»-  |iro|iertii'.s.    Its'greatest depth   is i
only 'Ion feet below the surface.' anel   as i
several shafts-were sunk' years u<»-o to a j
much greater depth than flic, tunnel, its i
present utility   for   ore  shipments  and ;' kasi.u

The, Burleigh Tunnel, at Georgetown.   &°™
was the! first tunnel in Colorado  driven !®
by machine drills.
The iievenue Tunnel is located at the ;
foot of Mt. lrendricks, (luray,   to   reach;
and develop the \"ir^»-ii!ins mine, carrying  ye ild   and   silver     The    Viryinius
workings'were shafts and   tunnels   four ,
miles louy.   The tunnel was connnenced
in,the fall  of   ISS7,   completed   in   1S!H.
Tin- tunned is s feet   xpiare.    It   intersects the \'ii-criniru: at ".son feet, or over '
a mile, from which intersection there is .
an extension on tlie   vein   another   half!
mile     from this   the.  ore   in   the,  veun
will lie taken out from  below.    Stopinij-:
will lie carried  upwards  to  a   vertical,
height, of over -2,0110   foe't.   for  a   length'
along the vein of 7,5on feet, the. average,
width of  tiie   vein   beiniv   ~>   feet.    The
o-reatest  depth   of   the.  tunnel   is  :-!,0nu i
leet     It is equipped with a double, track
of -24-incli yatiye operated by an electric .
niote,^    The total cost of the tunnel and ' «-f-«fc
water-power plant was $-100,1100.    It   is     "'   "
used both for ore shipment  and   drainage.    The averaire value of  the  ore,   is
s-jo.    The   ore   is   brouirht   out  of   the
