HECLA CONSOLIDATED CO. PRODUCES $1,000,000 A YEAR
The operations of the Hecla Consolidated Mining
Company for the past year have been remarkably successful. The
mines of the company at Hecla City have yielded a large amount of high
grade smelting ore, and the mines are producing well now. The
furnaces at Glendale were run steadily during the past year. The
gross production of the Hecla Company, in base bullion and matte, for
the year 1882 reached the enormous sum of $1,000,000. This yield
unquestionably places the Hecla Company foremost in the list of the
producing mining companies in Montana Territory. The company
commences the new year with exceedingly bright prospects, and the yield
for 1883 bids fair to exceed that of any former year.

THE BIRCH CREEK MINES TO BE THOROUGHLY
The opening of the Birch Creek mines has assumed
definite shape and active work is now being prosecuted
daily. Winter supplies have been laid in and all supplies and
labor paid for up to date.
At a recent meeting,
“The Birch Creek Prospecting
Company” elected the following officers:
President - H.
Secretary and Treasurer
- O. Willis
Knippenberg, Guy Barton and O. Willis
Developing Manager -
- Jay Wells
The members of the
company are - Henry Knippenberg,
Guy C, Barton, E.W. Nash, James Parfet, John Parfet, G.G. Earle, C.A.
Hoyt, N.C. Barnum, Jay Wells and O. Willis.
The company is a
strong one. Messrs. Barton
and Nash are of the Omaha Smelter, and Mr. Knippenberg is the
successful General Manager of the Hecla Consolidated Mining
Glendale. The other officers of the company are nearly all
practical mining men and men of experience in the opening of mines and
reducing of ores.
The company owns or has under bonds fifteen of the
partially developed mines in the Birch Creek District - including
all the iron mines. The company has no speculative motive in view
and has entered into the enterprise for regular and active mining.
The Birch Creek Prospecting Company is provided with
ample means to develop its properties. The opening of these mines
will insure the erection of smelting works in the district.
Everything indicates that it is only a matter of a short time when
Birch Creek will be a busy mining center. As the mines are being
developed they are looking well with plenty of good grade all-over ore

a letter from Glendale, dated the 8th, we learn
some of the particulars of what is supposed to be a cold-blooded murder
committed at a place on Canyon creek, known as “Wunderlich’s fence,”
near the Big Hole river. The name of the murdered man is V.H.
Davidson, and the murderer is Chas. Merrell alias John A. Jessrang who
was lately pardoned out of the Penitentiary. The circumstances
related by our correspondent are as follows: Both men came down from
Lion City. Merrell registered at the Avery House on the 3rd and
Davidson on the 4th. On the 5th Davidson showed Browne, at the
brewery, a large sack of money, stating
that there was $1,300, and that
he didn’t need to work in mines. On the same day Browne loaned
Jessering some gun powder. On Tuesday both men left Glendale
together. On Wednesday Jessrang returned with his feet badly
frozen that his boots had to be cut off. He told one story about
being to Lion City after his blankets, and another that he left his
companion (Davidson) at Butte. These stories aroused the
suspicion of Andrew Madison and he went over toward the Big Hole, and
on the way he came to a place where the snow showed a struggle had
taken place. Blood was scattered around, and a trail, made as by
dragging a body across the snow, led down to the creek. Madison
followed the trail to a place where a fire had been made. On
examination he found what he supposed to be parts of human bones, and a
few pieces of clothing. Returning to
Glendale Madison and
Bateman arrested John A. Jessrang alias Chas. Merrell, and swore out a
complaint before Justice Bert Storrs. Jessrang waived a
preliminary examination and the constable brought him down to Dillon
yesterday, Friday, and he is lodged in jail to await the action of the
Grand Jury. Jessrang is the same man who escaped from the
Penitentiary and for whose capture Sheriff Reinhardt received $200
reward. Jessrang, it is reported, admits that Davidson froze to
death and that he burned the body.

MURDERER AND CREMATOR OF DAVIDSON
Hung by Masked Vigilantes in the Beaverhead County Jail.
Dillon was greatly excited on Wednesday
morning when it was publicly made known that the vengeance of the
Vigilantes had been wreaked on the prisoner Jessrang. On Tuesday
night between 11 and 12 o’clock John A. Jessrang, the prisoner confined
in the county jail and indicted for the murder of V.H. Davidson, was
jerked into eternity by a band of Vigilantes.
On last Saturday the people of Glendale were aroused
and intensely excited by the bringing into that town of portions
of the remains of the murdered Davidson. A party had visited the
scene of the murder and cremation and found, buried in the snow, parts
of the body. The hips and lower part of the body and inches of
the backbone, the heart and a part of the kidneys were found. It
was a fearfully cold night when the murder was committed, and the
murderer did not have time, it is supposed, to burn the body of his
victim up before daylight dawned by a fire made out of willow, and what
remained of the foully-murdered Davidson was shoved under the snow,
which is deep at the place of cremation. The excitement on the
exhibition of these parts of the body of Davidson grew greatly in
Glendale. The sequel to that excitement, presumably, ended in the
county jail by a midnight execution - the swinging up of Jessrang.
On Tuesday night, the 6th, between 8 and 9 o’clock,
quite a number of men rode into Dillon, coming from the north.
The men came riding in twos, and no particular suspicion was attached
to their motions, except that it appeared an unusual thing for so many
men to come into town on horseback at that hour of night.
About the hour of 11 o’clock that night vigilantes,
supposedly to the number of fifteen to twenty, scaled the high
fence surrounding the jail by the way of the shed, and entered the
kitchen wherer Deputy Mikus was sleeping. Two Vigilantes - or
lynchers - stood up over Deputy Mikus with drawn revolvers to keep him
quiet, while the rest proceeded to the work of hanging Jessrang.
Having secured the jail keys from Mikus’ pockets execution exercises
commenced. The two other prisoners in the jail were guarded in
their cell, and these men say the hanging was done without undue
confusion. The Vigilantes experienced some difficulty in
unlocking Jessrang’s cell, but finally the right key in the bunch was
found and they got at their man. They worked almost noiselessly
and did the job quickly. A rope was put around Jessrang’s neck
and passed over the iron bar over the door of the doomed man’s
cell. Jessrang was drawn up and left hanging, and he passed into
the eternal custody of his God without a prayer for the forgiveness of
the horrible crime for which he was lynched. The Vigilantes,
still masked, remained in the jail for a time and having commanded
Deputy Mikus to remain quiet and give no alarm for one hour, they
departed, but not until the victim of their vengeance was dead and
beyond the resurrecting power of mortal man. Held an hour after
the lynchers had left, Deputy Mikus wakened up Sheriff Reinhardt and
reported the lynching.
The death of Jessrang having been produced by
unlawful violence, in accordance with the law, Coroner Hirschman
summoned a jury, who investigated the case and returned the following
VERDICT OF THE CORONER’S JURY
TERRITORY OF MONTANA,
County of Beaverhead
An inquisition held at the Dillon jail, in the county of Beaverhead, on
the 7th day of March, A.D. 1883, before me, Charles Hirschman, Coroner
of Beaverhead County, upon the body of John A. Jessrang, there lying
dead, by the jurors whose names are hereunto subscribed - the said
jurors, upon their oaths, do say the said John A. Jessrang came to his
death by being unlawfully hung by a mob of masked men between the hours
of 11 and 12 o’clock, p.m., of March 6th, 1883, in the door of his cell
in the county jail of Beaverhead County, Montana.
After the Coroner’s jury had concluded the
investigation the body of Jessrang was placed in a coffin. Rev.
Mr. Drummond, in the presence of the jury and a few others read a
portion of the Episcopal burial service and made a few appropriate
remarks. Coroner Hirschman took charge of the remains, and in the
potter’s field adjoining Dillon, John A. Jessrang sleeps the sleep that
know no waking.
The lynching of the prisoner, John A. Jessrang was a
violation of the statutory law - in law it was a murder. The
evidence against Jessrang was circumstantial, but so strong, and
connected together, link by link, so closely and clearly that there is
no reasonable doubt he was guilty of one of the most horrible crimes
known in the catalogue of criminal offenses. Many cold-blooded
murders have been committed in Beaverhead County and the murderers
escaped the gallows. When the machinery of the criminal law, for
years, fails to punish men who have been guilty of committing
murder, the statute law is supplanted by lynch law. This is the
experience all over the country and Beaverhead County has no proven an
exception. When Grand Juries ignore crime from that of foul
murder down to petty larceny. When Courts administer law for the
benefit of criminals the Courts sink into contempt among the people and
the result is that lynch law asserts its supremacy and the law in
the statute books is paralyzed. It may be said that the recent
lynching was an outrageous violation of the law of the land.
While this is true, the verdict of nineteen out of every twenty men in
the county will sustain, if not applaud, the work of the lynchers,
which was done in the dead of night. The execution of the
prisoner, Jessrang, was swift and destitute and every thing that
resembled a mite of mercy. If he committed the heinous crime of
which he was accused and for which he was indicted, no punishment at
the hands of his executioners was too severe - but it was,
nevertheless, illegal. It is the duty of every good citizen to
uphold the laws and oppose, by words and actions, any violation of the
law that is made for the protection of all. The recent work of
Judge Lynch will be ensured simply because it was a violation of the
law. The actors in the lynching tragedy, while guilty of breaking
the law, will, probably, rest satisfied that their deed was
justifiable, and it seems that public opinion is overwhelmingly in

hanging of Jessrang, considered as an economic
measure, probably saved Beaverhead County $5,000. County
Commissioner Lovell at midnight, it is reported, declined to cut
Jessrang down. This is the only instance of record in which
Commissioner Lovell was not in favor of “cutting down.”

Scott Works will furnish the machinery, which is modeled after that of
the Hecla Concentrator in all material respects.
M.T. Lamb, the Baptist pastor at Glendale, visited Dillon and

steps toward building a Baptist Chapel in Dillon was taken. The
movement met with such encouragement that it is quite probable a church
building for the Baptist denomination will be erected within a short
time in the central part of town.

who did not bear a good reputation for being a peaceful citizen while
under the influence of whisky, met his death at the muzzle of a
shotgun, in the hands of Mike Kutt the keeper of a saloon. It
appears from accounts that Tindal was on a spree and attempted to
capture Kutt’s saloon,. Kutt defended his property and killed
Tindal. Acting Coroner Tarbell summoned a jury on Monday, who
investigated the matter and from the testimony rendered a verdict that
the killing was done in self defense. The following is the
finding of the Coroner’s Jury:

of Mike Kutt while acting in self defense and protecting his property.
In witness whereof the said jurors have

THE HECLA CONCENTRATOR
The Madisonian has a report,
Mr. Dahler, that the Hecla Consolidated Mining Company, at Greenwood,
is preparing to double the capacity of their concentrator before the
year closes. The concentrator has proven a complete success,
showing that Manager Knippenberg exercised wise discretion in
erecting it for his company. The present capacity of the
concentrator is one hundred and fifty tons of ore per day, and if this
capacity is doubled all the ore extracted from the Hecla mines will be
treated by the concentrator before being hauled to the furnaces at
Glendale for reduction. At present all of the first-class ore is
sent to the smelter in crude state. The vast ore reserves in the
mines owned by the Hecla company will justify the doubling of the
capacity of the concentrating works.

annual sermon and are against Joe C. Keppler, Ed R. Alward, Judge
Thomas and Deputy Vinson, charging the latter with conspiring
together to deprive the plaintiffs of their liberty, by getting up a
farce of a law suit in Judge Thomas’ court, at Glendale, wherein the
plaintiffs were fooled into serving on a sham jury, this depriving the
said plaintiffs of their liberty until 12 o’clock of a certain
night. The complaints are ponderous citations, setting forth
minutely showers of allegations, the most serious of which is the one
mentioned. Plaintiffs demand, each, $1,000 damages, from which it
would appear that they do not propose to be held in custody on a sham
action at law unless they are liberally paid for the inconvenience
sustained. Robt. B. Smith is attorney for the plaintiffs.

A correspondent of the Salt Lake Tribune recently
visited the Glendale camp and writes a favorable report of the active
operations of the Hecla company, the most successful mining
organization is Southern Montana. The full capacity of both
smelters at Glendale is the reducing of one hundred tones of ores and
fluxing daily. The base bullion product of the smelters is
shipped to the Omaha Smelting Works, at Omaha, and from two hundred to
three hundred tons are forwarded monthly, worth upwards of
$70,000. There are 30,000 shares of Hecla stock at $50 per
share. The company pays a monthly dividend - of one per cent on
its capital stock - regularly. Last year $75,000 of dividends
were withheld from the stockholders to erect and equip the concentrator
at Greenwood. The mines belonging to the company at Lion Mountain
are in excellent shape and yielding plenty of ore that averages fifty
ounces in silver to the ton and thirty-three per cent in lead.
Fully 50,000 tons of second class ore is developed in the different
mines of the company. This ore will be concentrated at the

been known to enter Glendale only to be downed by imbibing its bad
whisky. If the reverend gentleman succeeds in wiping out Glendale

as superintendent of the mines. Mr. Parfet has displayed great
skill in opening up the mines and great energy and sagacity in keeping

evening of the 25th, as it was pay day, both with the Hecla Company and

The Hecla Co.’s smelter is running at full speed with both of their 50
ton furnaces working to their full capacity, although the concentrator,
at Greenwood, is temporarily running slow on account of putting in new
machinery. It, like the smelter, runs day and night, never
stopping except to repair damages.
Mr. Knippenberg, the genial and accommodating manger of the Co., is
always on duty, to entertain visitors, as well as to look after the
companies’ interests, which tasks he accomplishes to the gratification
of all. In this he is ably seconded by G.G. Earle, the
superintendent of the smelter.
Mr. Knippenberg seems to understand the true system of labor by
employing only skilful industrious and steady hands; paying them good
wages and using them like men, thereby gaining their confidence and
A glance over the business portion of the town reveals a quiet, local
trade, but there seems to be a great demand for the comforts, as well
as the necessaries, of life. Joe Keppler has a bountiful supply
of the various ornaments which please - and it will please him to have
visitors appreciate his endeavors to cater to the tastes of all.
Mr. Keppler runs the post office himself now, as he has secured the
services of a competent jeweler, from Pennsylvania. Wilson, Rote
& Co. besides their main store, have large contracts from the Hecla
Co., and also run a branch store and two boarding houses at the
mines. Armstrong and Losee have a varied supply of merchandise
which will probably be replenished in a short time, as the senior
partner has just returned from a trip to California and Oregon.
Pond and Genereaux, although lower down the street and apparently
almost out of the business center, still keep up with the times
and exhibit great tact in the selection of their ample stock of
goods. John Wells still keeps the old stand and is always sought
out by some of the old timers. Welch is just putting in a
first class stock of notions and fruits.
Dr. Alward is kept busy as prescriptions have to be filled even in our
healthy country. Dr. Leavitt is still in town but he is soon to
return to California. Dr. Schmalhausen is practicing as
usual. Justices Storr and Thomas deal out justice tempered with
mercy. Billy Parkinson, always ready to show hospitality to
strangers, helps, with several others, to dispense the needful to the
thirsty. Prof. Brown wields the lather brush now. The
brewery is now running with a good outlook.
The skating rink still seems to be the most popular source of amusement
and is only objected to, by the saloon keepers, who complain that it
takes away their custom.
The schools, under the guidance of Miss Anna Carter, are very
successful, and reopen under favorable circumstances with Miss Minnie

presentation was made by a committee consisting of H.S. Libby, B.H.
Cook, Harry Boyer and Mr. Reynolds. On behalf of the
employers of the reduction works, Mr. Libby made some happy remarks
which were responded to as follow: Gentlemen, as committee, from the
boys, you will please convey to them my heart felt thanks. I
shall prize this more for its pleasant association and expression of
good will from you. I wish you all success in the future and the
Hecla Co., as well. This is a complete surprise, and I can say no
The following preamble and resolutions were presented at the same time:

recollections to our relations with him, and in whatever calling
pursuit he may be engaged, we desire to express our hope that he may be
as successful as he has been here in gaining the regard the best wishes
of those under his charge.
Resolved, That the slight token accompanying this, may be
to him, a pleasant memento of his work at Glendale, and that we as
employees appreciate the firmness and wisdom in which the Reduction
Department was managed.

antics of occasional correspondents from that region.

The mining department of the Hecla company is in a fine condition,
producing daily some two hundred tons of first and second class ore,
keeping both concentrator and smelter running day and night.
The Hecla company has on hand, at Glendale, some 400,000 bushels of
charcoal for the winter run, and some 600 tons of surplus ore in the
bins of the smelter.
All the departments of the Hecla company are running smoothly
notwithstanding sweeping changes made by General Manager Knippenberg, a
month since. Mr. K. has never yet failed to be equal to any emergency
during his three year’s management, the only fears now are, his general
health is giving way.
CENTRAL COMMITTEE MEETING
The Republican Central Committee, of Beaverhead county, met at the
office of B.F. White on Wednesday evening, pursuant to the call of the
chairman, all the members being present except A.F. Sears of Bannack.
Following in the foot steps of the Democratic Committee it was
concluded not to be expedient to call a convention for the purpose of
making nominations for delegates to the Constitutional Convention and
the committee unanimously placed in nomination Geo. M. Brown of Horse
Prairie and R. Z. Thomas of Glendale as such candidates. Both
gentlemen are eminently qualified for the position and will, no doubt,
receive the full support of their party friends, as well as that of a
large number of “old timers” to which class both belong. As no
political significance attaches to the position in any manner, all look
to see an entirely independent course taken by the voters of the
county, and in such a case Geo. M. Brown will be very apt to “get
there” for his friends and legion, especially among the old settlers of
Beaverhead county. Judge Thomas’ Glendale friends will also, we
are assured, take care of him on election day.
Austin H. Brown has gone to Indianapolis.
Pay day last week and everyone happy.
Dr. Vinson has hung his dental shingle to the Montana royal zephyrs.

her home in Glendale, on the 19th of October, by a number of her
friends. The presents she received were numerous and handsome.
Augustus and Geronimi have opened the “Headquarters” saloon,
making the ninth saloon for this enterprising town. As soon as
that barrel of “general health restorer” arrives, there will be a grand
boom in the hardware line.
Last week a criminal case, for disturbance of the peace, was tried
before Judge Thomas with a jury of twelve good law-abiding
citizens. The defendant was a cowboy named Carbot, from the Big
Hole. The jury found him guilty and the court fined him $25 and
trimmings. Total $86.90. He paid up and remarked that the
jury’s decision would “separate me and Jane.”

FROM DEWEY’S FLAT
Flat, Nov. 5, 1883.
Presuming that you would like to hear from the
Northern part of Beaverhead county, I drop you a line in regard to the
same. We are located on the south banks of the Big Hole river,
six miles from Divide, Silver Bow county, and about fifteen miles north
of Glendale. This place would more properly be called Glen, as we
are surrounded on all sides by high mountains.
We have neither a grocery, saloon of church in this place, and none
nearer than Glendale or Melrose, but we have a log school house with
about thirty children of school age to attend. The Trustees, E.G.
Bryant, Mrs. R.J. Bryant and E. Griswold, have been fortunate in
securing the services of Mrs. W.G. Barkley as teacher for the coming
winter. The clerk of the district is Mrs. F. Deno. The lady
trustee and clerk will give a public supper on Thanksgiving night for
the benefit of the school fund of the district.

Our active road supervisor, Mr. H. Churchill, is and has been doing
wonders in the way of road work, and he has been ably assisted by the
citizens of this place and the upper Big Hole country. They are
now putting in a road along the bank of the river, just above the Flat,
cutting through solid rock, and making fill ups in the river to the
depth of sixteen feet. This cut is three-quarters of a mile in
length, and as soon as finished it will open up a passage to the upper
Big Hole country for ninety miles. The Board of County
Commissioners have opened up their hearts sufficient to appropriate
$500 to build a bridge across Wise river and put in this road of cut,
and all the citizens ask is $500 more of the county. It should by
all means be furnished out of the road fund.
There are two stamp mills here owned by the Monroe Company and Allen
Hay. One is running night and day. The other is and has
been idle for some time for some unknown cause.

Hon. Noah Armstrong came from his ranch in Madison county to spend
Thanksgiving at Glendale. His stamp mill in Georgia Gulch,
Madison county, is a model of neatness and mechanical skill. It
was put in motion about the middle of July and has pounded up 400 tons

has been shut down for the winter.
