"which Is also applicable to the country
around Humboldt, Amelia, Malheur and

addition to the mining map of Eastern
Oregon, having once been prospected and
abandoned because of Insufficient knowl

last 12 months have people been willing

make a showing. There are a few mills

the last season. Through the Sumpter
"Valley railroad. Baker has direct connec
tion with the Sumpter district, and by
stage from there with the Granite dis
trict and Grant county.
In the Baker district there are also
rich copper mines. Wallowa county will
be heard from in a substantial way along
the Imnaha river, where it is believed
the Seven Devils copper mines will be
surpassed. The gold belt is also being
extended up Into "Wallowa county. Cop

The principal points to be reached by
stage from Baker are: Helena or Seven

Wagon roads lead -from Baker in all di
rections, giving easy access to points
where stages do not run.
Revelations of rich ore bodies have come
with such rapidity and certainty that peo
ple need a little time to get their breath
and prepare for the great rush that will
'come In the spring. From the source of
the Owyhee to the north line of Oregon,
Baker district will be alive next summer,
and many a man who has faced the rigors
of Alaska will have less to show for his
effort and suffering than those who are
satisfied to look nearer home for gold.
Sumpter Mining: district.
That part of this district around Sump
ter, Granite and Bourne needs no further
mention. New developments are taking
place In this district, which the prospector
should not overlook. Susanville is a prom
ising ground for next season In both
placer and quartz. Around Prairie City,
Canyon City and John Day are some rich
finds. Farther south, in Harney county,
near Harney and Burns, are good veins
of gold, copper and lead. This part of the
district has received but little attention,
and the outlook for the future Is bright
The last of the three districts Into which
we have divided the Eastern Oregon gold
fields for convenience Is the newest and
least known, and Is, for the first time,
classed In the mineral belt It is called
the Antelope district because the town
by that name is in, perhaps, the richest
part of the territory. Rich quartz and
placer gold is known to exist near Ante
lope and Lookout mountain. The Ochoco
river has good placer beds. There is also
copper to considerable extent This Is
comparatively new ground, and will bear
Unless all signs fall, and the western
mining world misses its guess, the output
of gold in these three districts, all one in
reality, will be so stupendous In the next
few years that the -world will marvel that
civilization should so long gravitate
around this inland treasure vault without
finding the combination.

OF INTEREST TQ MINING MEN.
Most Complete Sampling: and Assay
ing: Plant on the Pacific Const.
The Montana metallurgical works, re
cently established at 92 First street, this
city, and incorporated under the laws of
the state of Oregon, Is beyond question
one of the most complete establishments
of its kind on the Pacific coast The
company was organized and its plant
erected In this city for the purpose of
meeting the demands of the rapidly de
veloping mining Interests of this section
of the country, of which Portland is
naturally the business center .
The mine-buyer, or the prospector who
thinks he has discovered a mine, wants
to know three things at once about It
First, what, if any, mineral the rock con
tains; second, the value of the same per
ton; and, third, the best and necessary
process for treating it in order to realize
the best results. This knowledge is abso
lutely essential for the successful opera
tion of a mine, and this knowledge can
now be obtaine'd with celerity and perfect
exactness, through the establishment of
the Montana metallurgical works.
The plant of the company is complete
in the minutest detail, for sampling and
testing ores of all kinds, and for making
mill tests of free gold ores in any quan
tity from one pound to five tons. It has
special facilities for melting and refin
ing gold and retorting amalgams. The
machines in use for these tests, are all of
the latset and most modern type, and are
operated by electric power. There are
three furnaces for melting and smelting
purposes, the hest of their kind. With
a crusher having a capacity of one mill
stamp, and propelled by electric power,
the company can make a complete test of
a large body of ore in a comparatively
short space of time; whereas, under the
old way, with machines propelled by hand,
only a small portion of the ore Is tested,
and results obtained are much less certain
and satisfactory- The grinder, also pro
pelled by electricity, and through which
the ore is passed after coming from the
crusher, practically pulverizes the rock
and makes it finally ready for melting. As
an illustration of the power of these mod
ern machines and their advantages over
the old methods, a few days ago a sack
of 100 pounds of ore was put through the
crusher in 10 minutes, and shortly after
ward was transformed into a powder of
about the consistency of the finest flour.
Under the old process of crushing by hand,
it would have required many hours to ac
complish the work of 10 minutes' operation
of these machines.
In connection with tnese modern ap
pliances there is a complete assaying out
fit under the most skillful management.
All assays are made in duplicate, and
the work is guaranteed, and if the re
sults obtained by them are not practi
cally the same as those reached by other
reliable assayers, all money will be re
funded by the company. The company
has a complete set of assayers balances,
made expressly for their use.
The company allows mint rates for gold
dust and retorts (less express charges) for
all amounts, or will attend to settle
ments with mints or banks. Their prices
are reasonable, and the management,
cheerfully volunteers to furnish them with
any other Information desired by the min
Mr. S. Chase is president of the new
company, with Mr. J. T. Gove as man
ager. Mr. Chase was formerly connected
ivith the Omaha smelting works and re
finery for a number of years, ana has
become well known in this section of the
country from connection with various
Mr. Gove has had over 30 years' ex
perience as an assayer, and was for
many years connected with the Salt Lake
smelting works. Latterly he was In the
mining business In Montana, and was
manager for the Utah assaying office in
Helena for a number of years.

In a rich mining district
Of all the gold camps In the United
States, there is no record of anything bet
ter or richer than the great mining district
of Eastern Oregon. The famous Virtue
mine, near Baker City, has already pro
duced millions in gold, and it has been
the means of building up several princely
fortunes ,for its successive owners. The
Balsley-Elkhorn and other properties of a
similar character in this same dis
trict, are today among the great produc
ing gold mines of the coast The gold-
bearing veins of the Eastern Oregon mines
are all wide; they are well defined, ana
what is their most remarkable feature, is
that, without exception, they show an In
crease of richness as depth is attained.
These mines are today classed by mining
men as among the richest producing gold
properties of the West, and their future
development promises much for Portlanu,
and for the entire state in which they are

the Butler, the Gold Bar and the Lady
Elgin. Theso mines are situated on the
McCully's branch of Powder river, but
four miles distant from the town of Sump
ter. This group of mines lies In the same
belt or zone as the rich producers, the
.Norm .pole, Columbia, Ibex, Bunker Hill,
E. & E., Golconda, Eureka, Ohio and Ex
celsior. These mines are located within a
radius of four miles of the properties of
the Evening Star Mining Company. The
Golconda itself is but five claims distant
This latter mine, in a 36-hour run within
the past month, cleaned up from its plates
over $12,000. All of these mines are devel
oped and are now among the steady pro
ducers of the Sumpter district
Regarding the properties' of the Evening
Star Mining Company, the Evening Star
mine is worthy of first mention. It Is on
this mine that the greatest development
work has been done. It has two veins,
the north vein being opened by a crosscut
from the north wall, a distance of 18 feet,
at a depth of 12 feet, all in quartz. The
ore In this mine is Identical with that of
the rich Ibex mine. The free gold It car
ries can plainly be seen by the naked eye.
The south wall Is quartzlte, and where
the crosscut is made it shows a vein 69
feet between walls. The cropplngs of this
vein are easily followed for over 1100 feet,
and again it shows the same croppings on
the Gold Bar which can be readily traced
throughout that claim. The Wheeler has
a vein, 42 feet between walls, and is opened
by a 14-foot cut at a depth of 12 feet
along the south wall. This vein shows
two walls, the north wall being of slate,
the south wall of quartzite, and it is
traceable through the Butler. The La
Grande has a well-defined vein, 36 feet In
width, the north wall being slate, while
the south wall is of black or blue lime
stone. This vein, continues through the

vein between walls averages from $1 50 to

and Sumpter who are most conversant
with tne history of the camp in which

The mines of the Evening Star Mining
Company will probably a year hence be
classed among the steady producers of the
Sumpter district, and from the results of
the development work already done, one
may be warranted In the assumption that
they will prove fully as rich as any of the
great mines of Eastern Oregon that are
now yielding thousands of dollars annually
in yellow metal, the gold that the whole
world may be said to be seeking.
THE OSBORN HOTEL.
Among the Most Popular and Sac-,
cessfnl in the City.
A hotel, which enjoys an exceptionally
excellent reputation is the Osborn, owned
and conducted by Mr. J. H. Baylor, 25
Grand avenue, East Side. The house
is a handsome structure, situated in the
business district, and on tne line of the
principal street railways of the city. It
has 42 handsomely furnished, well-lighted
and well-warmed rooms, and the table
fare is of uniform excellence, the cuisine
and service being all that could be aeslred
so that the, fame of the hotel as a nrso
class provider has extended far and wide.
It is an especial favorite wich people desir
ing a quiet, first-class home, to whom the
proprietor offers the inducements of spe
cial rates. Commercial travelers, too, who
are proverbially excellent judges of what
constitutes a good hotel, show their ap
preciation of the Osborn by patronizing
the house generously. The drummer who
visits all parts of this country gives our
city the credit of being a good hotel town
as well as a good place to do business.
Globetrotters who have tested the hos
pitality of the leading hotels of Europe
and America from the Bcsphorus to the
Golden Gate credit our hostelrles with be
ing as good as found anywhere. Good ho
tels are a valuable possession to any city,
us they are largely regarded as indices
to the quality of the place they represent,
and in this connectlor the Osborn is en
titled to a prominent place. The excel
lence of the cuisine and service at the
Osborn is well known to the public, the
table being supplied with the choicest of
viands, well cooked and properly served
by an ample force of help, who look after
the comfort of every individual guest.
Mn Baylor is an affable, courteous and
able hotel man, and under his superior
management the Osborn hotel has already
assumed a prominent place among those
that provide the comforts of a home life
to many of Portland's visitors.

The trade enjoyed by this house extends
to all points in the Northwest and very
frequently Eastern tourists leave orders
for valuable fur garments. It is needless
to state that the Rummellns are experts
in this line, and that the best furs only
find place in the rich and magnificent
stock carried. Rumelin & Sons are lo

The Leading: Dry Goods Honso on tho
Among the business houses of premier
rank on the East Side.a prominent placo
Is held by the dry goods house of W. H.
Markell, which stands foremost among
the retail establishments of the North
west. When this gentleman engaged in
business nine years ago his stock la
trade did not exceed the value of 513U0,
while today a very conservative estimato
would place the figure much in excess of
$20,000. Everything to be found In a weli
appolnted store of this character is car
ried In stock, consisting of dry goods, no
tions, silks, satins, woolens, flne linen.
cotton goods, hosiery, drapery, gen3'
furnishing goods, ladles', children's and
men's shoes, etc- During the Cle eland
administration, when Oregon underwent
such a severe financial strain, several of
Mr. Markeli's competitors were forced to
the wall, being compelled to abandon tv "
dry goods business and engage in othT
pursuits, but Markell withstood tb plnci,
without the slightest injury to his bu -ness,
and since then has found it necc -sary
to move three times in order to se
cure more commodious quarters
