FIRK THAT HAS BURNF.D TWO
The terrible 11 res which arc now rag

near Aspen, Colo., in which forty miles
of underground workings are consum

Ut ieu initio of California, ngain direct
public attention to theso subterranean
conllagrntions in mines of a non-carboniferous
charactor. Tho presence of
tho deadly lire-damp, or carburetted
hydrogen, in coal mines, and its liber
ation by the removal of coal, to ac
cumulate in some excavated chamber,
often reasonably enough account for
explosions in those mines, followed by
Are seizing upon tlio mineral and cling

of coal which are now burning and have
been burning for twonty years, despito
all efforts to assuago tho devouring

sixty boilurs has been stendily turned
for many months, and then, after all
eflbits to (ixtinuuish thorn had proved
futile, further attempts woronbandonod,

WORDS THAT WEAR.
Theodore Roosevelt is becoming
known as an orator. The press of
the country is beginning to idolize
his remarks made to the Rough
Riders at Las Vegos, and some of
the papers go so far as to declare
that the executive of the empire
state represents the oratory of the
future, In other words, that the
Devoted to Mines and Miners A Nugget Corres
pondent's Batch of News.
The Anaconda or Fairvicw we are informed will put on a force of
men tinder the direct supervision of W. H Keruey just as soon as the
roads will admit of travel, to develop that already promising mine. Assay
values running as high as $400 per ton have been obtained from this
The Baltimore and Orphan Boy owned by Mr. Ed Jenks and
situated on the north slope of Farview is another promising group
showing a ledge of from 4 to 14 feet in width and running high in gold,
silver, lead and copper. Mr Jenks also owns a group on Martin creek
which is one of the finest locations to be found anywhere in the north
west with ample water power for 40 stamps and timber in abundance for
all purposes, and situated below snow line and easy of access winter and
summer. This property lias been equipped with an arasta of large
dimensions and of course made a failure. But when one considers the
management and the way the arasta is built it leads one to believe it
was built for a salmon hatchery. Mr. Jenks will put in a stamp mill to
reduce ore and it is sure to make, under good management, a dividend
The Helena is another of the many very rich mines of our Bohemia
which unfortunately at present is under litigation. But its vast rich
ness makes it a wonder to the casual observer. There is noplace in it
where one cannot stand with his his light without seeing gold and out
side in the bin there is piled about 2,000 tons of ore and anywhere one
looks s;old is plainly in ev deuce. This may seem a fish story but some
fish stone; are true and the litigation is the bar from a big mill going in
at an early date.
The Noonday is making preparations to rebuild their tramway pre
naratory to starting their big 20 stamp mill at an early date There is
in this m'ne some ood feet of tunnels which does credit to the manage
ment for systematic timbering and from the large amount of ore blocked
out there is no reason why the mill cannot run steady for years to come.
The Champion group lies dormant at present but bad management
put it there. They have a fine group and an immense amount of good
develooment done in good ore and a fine 10 stamp mill. Companies
investing anywhere in mines should put in competent men to look after
their affairs for there has been more failures in mines for inexperience
I than most other causes. True some
good as others but when a mine has 1,000 leet of work done in $30 or
$40 ore and a ledge 3 or 4 feet in width and a good mill, there must be
something in the management. Such is the case with the Champion.
Mr. W. W. Hawley the Bohemia freighter gives notice that his
freight wagon will leave Cottage Grove every day, for Bohemia, and at
Bohemia station he will have a pack train to distribute freight to patrons.
The J. I. Jones property on City creek is another fine group, also
the Confidence owned by J. V Cook and Jas. Hetnenway on Steam
boat, and the Grouse Mountain group owned by Johnston, Klopenstein
and Hawley; the Lake owned by Jenks & Higgins; the Big.Iumix
owned by White Bros. ; the Hinds group and many others to numerous
to mention; but mines of no less note could be worked if there was only a
smelter, and if this district was situated as close tc Denver as it is to
Portland there would be a smelter. But Portland people look on mining
as purely a stock speculation and only for sharkes to dabble in, but
such is not the case, mining is a science now it has passed the specula
Many people of skeptical minds say there is nothing here to justify
a smelter. We say there is. There is in the first place ore in unlimited
cpjanties and the finest timber in the world and water power enough if
confined to quench the fires of Vesuvius, plenty of lead and lime and first
of all the prospectors are only to willing to form a contract with any
company to furnish so many tons of ore daily, enough to keep them
trrindincr as long as they wish to run, if Portland people were awake to
I their interests they could make this a
as the supply center.
cold, blunt facts will in time super
sede the fancy and pretty arrange
ment of words and sentences that
have so long been deemed the key
note to successful oratory.
Governor Roosevelt is magnetic
in appearance and his words con
tain so much truth that they can
not be forgotten. Here is a sample
from his speech at Las Vegos that
is being generally and favorably
"Let us not forget our comrades
who this summer are facing all that
we faced last summer. Let us not
forget the gallant men, the regu
lars and volunteers, who are up
holding the honor of the flag and
the interests of the nation in the
Philippines. Surely there is not
one of us whose veins has not
tingled with pride as he read of the
gallantry of those menj and I sup
pose few of us have not thought at
times that we should like ourselves
mines are like some farms not so
camp second to Cripple with Portland
to fight beside Lawton, as we
fought beside him last July, and to
see if the Rough Riders could not
do their share of the woik now
d6ne by the splendid men who
followed Fuuston, Hale and other
daring leaders, who, during the
past six months, have added so
many pages to the honor roll of
American history. To our shame
be it said, that there are men in
this nation so indifferent to the
country's honor, so lukewarm in
patriotism and courage, that they
would let all the work of these men
go for naught let their blood be
spilled iu vain. But the heart of
our nation is sound and the puny
folk who deem it otherwise are
woefully mistaken in their country
men. Where our flag has been
raised it shall not be hauled down.
If any difficulty seems greater than
we expected it merely means that
we shall exert a little more
strength in overcoming it."
