He had just returned from La Plata and quickly remarked that he had located two gold mines about two and a half miles northeast of La Plata, near East canon stream. He remarked quietly that one assay showed there was O gold to the ton. This is what set the boys wild. Ore from the other mine had not been assayed, but in his judgment it was better. In his opinion there is any quantity of gold in the district. HehasalbO sent samples to Denver and Butte to beaesaved and expects tbe returns any day. He was a pretty rich man this evening and there was nothing in the town tbe boys thought too good for him. He says there has been a rush for the place where he made his locations. Hit keeps men at work. Mr. S. F. Maokie, Fellow of the New Vork Academy of Sciences, and Coiled States deputy mineral assessor, has been pretty thoroughly through tbe mountains southeast of l'ara iiwj Jlhe past week. In conversation with a Journal reporter shortly after he returned Monday afternoon, he expressed himself as well pleased with the indications. His opinion is that there are promiees of La Plata being a big camp that will yield high and low grade ores. Said be: t lala aud toe lea, 1 visited both Sundown mines. Large bodies of ore are being uncov ered and my judgment is that these claims are on the same vein or ore body. I should certainly expect to find mineral in more than one place. As far as I could see I should think there are 2,000 acres of distinctly mineral laud in that On both sides there are palpable faults, and large bodies cf porphyry, and I should not expect much mineral for some distance after these faults are crossed." "How doep are the mines? Who can tell without going down; but from what I have seen I should judge there was an extensive body of ore where La Plata mine is. It would not surprise me if they found a body of ore 200 in width on the ground owned by La Plata company, but what the depth and whither it runs are other considerations. They are taking out large quantities of clean ore at La Plata mine, and I do not see what more they can want while it lasts. "Do you think the galena exposed by the Sundown people is a boulder?" Mr. Mackie Such a supposition is to me unreasonable. To my mind everything indicates that they are on solid ground and my theory regarding La Plata peems to be borne out by the fact that the company has commenced to sink 100 feet above the discovery point and there find the same indications; while the Sundown people, I am told, have uncovered the galena ore called a boulder farther down the bill. lean sny, they have exposed a bigger body of clean ore than I have ever Been before. As to a voin, what's the use talking of a vein when the whole thing seems to be sod.!? The only way the extent caa be told is to sink a shaft and then cross cut The ore will clean through the ore. probably extend to the contact of lime and porphyry which I should guess to be between 200 and 300 feet. Somples seen of the Sundown claim have the same appearance of rich and poor ores as in the Bullion and Eureka mines in Tintic. Of course, I can say nothing as to the value of these different ores. I should expect, from this, that future developments might prove them to be similar classes or deposits, possibly in limestone ot the same age. The country in which the mines occur is what is generally called an altered limestone that is to say, a limestone in which all. or nearly all, the lime has been replaced by quarts without changing the color or structure of the rock. This is usually an indication of ore bodies. The experts for the Eureka, in relied upon the Eureka Bullion-trial- , this alteration to prove the width of the vein, and the same theory was previously taken in the Kichmond Eureka suit. I made no examination, however, to ascer tain how laree there masses are, but I saw this character of rock at places that rrjjkb.ul ..

A HIDEOUS STORY. ' la so-tio- ' e semi-offici- f Russo-Turkis- vers Browa d rht t j dele--live- otTk-iai- s it flltu Coto-pax- e, MYSTERIOUS TKLEURAM. After the fated express train left Salt Lake a mysterious telegram passed over the wires. It caused no suspicion at the time. The belief now is that this cipher message went to the men who executed this fearless plot. IT so, it muBt have been a signal that the tine for action had come. With these new discoveries, it is plain to be seen that the robbery of the train was plotted in Salt Lake, and that some of the men at least who are implicatea therein are acquainted with the customs of the Denver & Rio Grande and Rio Grande Western railroads. It occasionally happens that the express which was robbed does not drop off the Rio Grando Western express car at Salt Lake. These cars are not fitted up with safes, as are the Rio Grande express cars, and are therefore much easier of robbery. It appears to have been the purpose of the men to await the time when this car should be brought through and should be well supplied with currency. The cipher dispatch may have been a notification that the WeBtern express car was coming and the time awaited by the daring men had arrived. THEIR BUSINESS. The skill with which the work was ex ecuted and the completeness with which the men dropped out of sight indicates two things. They must have understood their business and been well acquainted with the Wet Mountain country. It is THEY KNEW Short in His Accounts. Santa Fe, N. M- - Sept. 4.
