The first blast of a smelter whistle blown in 20 years was the signal Monday at Cooke City that activities in camp had once more resumed. The old Republic smelter, under the management of C.H. Eaton of Cooke, had been overhauled and placed in running order. It was 20 years to a day since the last blast was blown July 2, 1886. The operation of the smelter proclaims a new future for Cooke that promises to be more substantial than the short life it experienced in the palmy days of 20 years ago.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel, Notice the American flag, probably the first in the valley. Happy Fourth of July!!!
