It Looks Like it Mountain of Ore
if Indications Are Verified,
In June, 181)0, while Grundy
tVakhaus, Albert Mutz and Jim
Scott were hunting and fishing
around Lewis creek, in tlie
neighborhood of Wasa, and incidentally doing a little prospecting, just to occupy their spare
.lime, they had tlie good fortune
lo run upon some very pretty
specimens of qnarlss croppings,
which Grundy was willing to bet
would assay §3,200 per ton.
Mulz and Scott didn't allow their
visions o£ a goldon future to
carry their estimate of tho prop
erty quite so high; but at the
sumo time thought well enough
of it to help Aakhaus stake out
.three claims, which they called
the Lucky Star, Casino and Pris-
boe. Enough work was done
during tho year to show that the
claims wero really worth consideration, and when Don McKay
visited it early this spring and
made an offer of St,000 for the
Lucky Star group his offer was
accepted, and the property passed into the hands of John M.
Burke and Don McKay, who
have sold a { interest in the
group, which now consists of six
claims, to Francis McClelland.
The three additional claims were
found nud located by Mr. McKay,
and consist of tlie Butte, Lucky
Baldwin and the Hortense.
To use tho words of an old-
time mining man, who was recently in Port Steele and visited
the property, "The Lucky Star
is eitliora bonanza or a failure,
and from present indications it
most certainly looks liko the
Tho only work of any consequence that has been done on

as fast as material can bo secured—all frame—and built of

are tho lives and property of lhe
residents in peril, and llie merchants, hotel men and olher,s
placed at a tremendous disadvantage, but a more serious matter
confronts us; the sanitary condition of Port Steele is something
that should and must be consid

better, but; tho condition of affaire existing today, in a sanitary
way, is indeed "awfully rank,"
and the best thing for ils Improvement is a water work's system. Tlie committee can secure
