September, 1898, Mr. Dyaon came lo
Oregon City with the avowed intention
of enliatlng capital for the eatabllahment
ofaSatamp mill at the "Lucky Boy,"
and alao fur tho construction of a wagon
road 6, mile in length to connect with
the oonnty road leading to Eugene, the
distributing center of all tho outlylug
mining diathcta. Mr. Dyaon offered a
half Interest in the mine to Meser.
Latourrtte and Cooke, of Oregon City,
in return for their aaalstance in eecuriog
the much needed mill and the road.
These gentlemen, however, failed to im
mediately discern tha prospect of any
sure return on auch an investment, and
although strongly tempted by the rich
specimens submitted by Mr, Dyson, tbe
Jul y ml their decisive answer until too
late. Mr. Dyson had secured financial
backing in Portland. Mr. Louis Zim
merman, of the Zimmerman Packing
Company, Mr. F. C. Sharkey, of the
same firm, and Mr. F. E. Sharkey, of
Salt Lake, were the fortunate trio whose
quick perception and discernment se
cured for them a halt Interest In what
proved later to be one of the ' richest
mlnne in Oregon.
"I gave Mr. Lutein ette end Mr. Cooke
the Drat chance," laid Mr. Dyson, "but
their procrastination proved fatal.' How
ever, they still have an opportunity for
inveetmeut In other good minea of the
Calainwia and Blue Kiver districts if
they tool so disposed. I shall make
some Investments myself in either one
of the two districts.
"The new company, composed of Louis
Zimmerman, F. E. and F. O. Sharkey,
N. B. Standisb, J, W. Moore and George
A. Dyson, then commenced operations
on an extensive and profitable scale.
They constructed the 5-nille road and
erected a 5 stamp mill. This greatly
i expedited the work at the mine and the
monthly output toon began to excite
wide-spread Interest, ,aml many eyes
turned longingly to the Blue River dis
trict. From the profits of the "Lucky
Toy" the new company later erected a
ID-stamp mill and the monthly output
reached the enticing figures of $13,000
This showing, with only a 10-sUmp mill,
attracted the attention of outside capital,
and the owners of the "Lucky Boy" mine
today are easily worth a quarter million
of dollars. The ledge it 30 feet wide, all
