Mr. Sorenoen feels highly elated over the showing made upon the property since his last visit there, and states that there is no question but that the Friday will eventually tie one of the biggest mines in the state of Idaho. On account of the scarcity of lumber for mining purposes no drifting is being done at present, and the work is of necessity limited to hoisting the ore to the surface from the great ore reserves in the mine and placing the same upon the dump and in the ore-bins; in this way a large amount of ore will be on hand to run through the mill when it )b finished. The mill will be pushed for -ward to completion at the earliest ob sible moment, consistent with the economical expenditure of...
