TO The Little Florence of Goldfield one day last week transferred to a local mill 15.000 pounds of ore that is valued at $lo per pound. The lease is producing $25,1)00 a day. The rumor of a rich strike of ore in the new shaft of tin- I. C. Mining company, near Bellevue, Idaho, has been fully confirmed. A mill is to be erected at the property at once. The Creole mine, close to the old Lincoln, in Beaver county, and which has beep shut down for nearly twenty years, ha- - taken on new life and a carload of rich ore is being taken out per week. One hundred and fifty American employees of the Arizona Copper company's smelter at Clifton, Ariz., are on strike for an increase of 50 cents a day in wages. Tbey have been get- ting $:? a day.

It would not be surprising it some of the independent producers not affiliated witii United Metals made further concessions in the hope of get ting business.

Men have been put to work on the latter vein, after having been taken away from there two years ago, owing to apparent ground. t A contract for a tunnel has Just been let by the Nevada Hydraulic company at Tuscarora, Nev.
