The Hearst Ditch. Enterprise: Mr. Samuel McMaster, the gentlemanly superintendent of the Homestake company, has just completed, completed, in all probability, one of the longost tunnels in the Black Hills. It is 1,150 feet in length, including some open cuts. This tunnel forms a part of what is known as the Hearst ditch which conveys the water from White-wood White-wood White-wood creek to Lead City, and will be one of the greatest benefits, not only to Lead City, but also to the mills at Ter-raville Ter-raville Ter-raville and Central, and there will now be no need of hanging up stamps any more for the want of water. This new ditch has a capacity lor furnishing about thirty inches of water, which is more than enough to supply the mills in this city with all the water they want. The water in this ditch is connected connected with the Golden Star 120-stamp 120-stamp 120-stamp mill, and furnishes water to it separate and distinct from the other ditch. The new water supply is working like a charm, and as a matter of course, every one connected with the enterprise is nappy.
