W. C. Emke Mines at Pearl Sold for $25,000

Emmett Index, January 13, 1903

An important sale was made at Pearl this week by W. C. Emke of a group of four mining claims to New York parties, $25,000 down being paid, part down and the balance on short time. The Deserter mine, on which a rich strike was made recently, is included in the sale.

The purchasers of this property will erect a mill and do a large amount of development work the coming season and will contribute largely toward making Pearl one of the liveliest camps in Idaho.

Mr. Emke has many Emmett friends who are pleased to hear of his good fortune and entertain a hope that he will now become a permanent resident of this place. Mr. Emke still retains a number of promising claims in the Pearl district.
