Mr. Ben Dunchee, one of the "sturdy miners" of Middle Park came in from Lulu yesterday and in conversation with the reporter of THE NEWS gave some information regarding that soon to be famous mining camp, Lulu city. Although the snow has been over four feet in Lulu and vicinity most all winter, over twenty men have remained at the camp during the long winter months developing a numbers [sic] of the lodes that were opened up during last fall. Mr. Dunchee who is an old miner says that there is a better showing for the number of men in the camp than in any mining camp he has ever had anything to do with. Among the lodes that have been worked during the winter are the Southern Cross which has a drift of fifty feet and now shows good ore. The Robinson lode near by has a drift of fifteen feet and mineral has been struch. Mr. Dunchee brought down with him tow sacks of ore from these lodes for assay. The Rustic is showing up well, a recent assay run 209 ounces in silver. It was a drift of thirty feet and has been worked during the winter by Neil O'Donnell. This lode is the property of O'Donnell, Stuart, and Mansill. The Last Chance has also been worked during the winter. It has a fine showing in a fourtech-foot [sic] drift.Messers McCracken, Donahue, Simms and DeLong are the owners of this lode. Its ore has assayed 140 ounces in silver. The Hopkins, Wendenberg and Michigan lodes all show good mineral at no great depth. The mines above spoken of are near Shipler mountain in the Lead mountain mining district about one mile from Lulu city. The Star lode, one of the first to start the campand give it any prominence as to mineral wealth, has not been worked the past winter but will be extensively developed during the coming summer. The last assay from this lode run 150 ounces of silver. The principal men interested in this district are Fort Collins and Longmont citizens, from which places thee will be a large influx as soon as the roads are open. Mr. Dunchee was obliged to come a good part of the way over the mountains on snow shoes, at the present time snow in lulu is from three to three and a half feet deep. It is settling fast and ere many warm days roll by the ground will be clear, when prospecting will be commenced and carried on extensively during the season.7

|Death*||He died before 19 April 1907; had erroneously concluded that he had died prior to sister, Margaret, because he was not mentioned as a surviving sibling in her obituary.9 |
