SOUTHERN OREGON MINES
UNUSUAL ACTIVITY REPORTED IN
ALL THE MINES.
JTctv Machinery nnd Other Develop
ing Agencies Thts Is a Good
Tear for FIncer Diggings.
ASHLAND, On, March 4. J. L. Fenton,
of this city, returned Thursday, from
the Golden Standard mine, and reports
work progressing there with great activ
ity and promise of splendid returns to
the owners of the property. About 14
men are at work putting In place the
new five-stamp quartz mill, which will be
operated by steam power. The Golden
Standard mjne Is situated on the left fork
of Jackson Creek, about three and one
half miles from the county seat. There
are now over 10.000 tons of ore on the
dump awaiting the starting of the mill.
This ore goes about $15 to the ton, is free
milling, and comes from a ledge that is
12 feet wide. In addition to the quartz
mill the company has orderd a new JA
cobs concentrator from the Ashland Iron
Works, and expects to put In a new boiler
and engine In a short time. The owners
of the mine are delighted with the proper
ty, and feel sure that It will develop
Into one of the most valuable propositions
In this county.
The Kubli Bros., of Jacksonville, who
own the Golden Standard mine, situated
on Gall's Creek, near Gold Hill, have ar
ranged to start work on their property
the present week with a force of 12 men.
For the present they will use the old
and thrifty two-stamp mill, which has
reduced so much rich ore for them in
the past, but they have decided to replace
It, and have secured a 10-stamp mill,
with 500-pound stamps, which they will
change to 800-pound stamps, and have In
running order in the near future. Exten
sive development work has also been
planned, and when it shall be carried out
this mine is expected to enter the list of
large producers in Southern Oregon.
The Uncle Sam mine, on Water Gulch,
two and one-half miles from the town of
Gold Hill, is one of the most important
developments of the past few months.
The owner has G4 acres of patented land
on which the mine is located, and he is
working the development of the property
with commendable energy. The ore from
it has given $30 to the ton. and carries 7
to 16 per cent of copper. At present, n
tunnel is being dug and some drift work
executed. A ledge three feet wide, with
well-defined walls, has recently been
struck on this mine. The drifting is be
ing done from a 10-foot shaft, and will
strike this ledge at a dep.th of 80 feet.
Much interest has been caused in this
valley by the reports of a rich 'find on one
of the tributaries of Sucker Creek, called
Boland Creek. Sucker Creek rises in the
Siskiyou Mountains, and empties into
the Illinois River about nine miles north
of the state line. There were extensive
placer mines in this locality in 1S5S: but
of late years the section has been almost
untouched since the early historv of the
country. The new find on Boland Creek
has been made by "VV. D. Gardner, who
has uncovered a quartz ledgo from two
to six inches In width that goes $S0 to
$1000 to the ton. and Is one of the best
strikes that has been reported this year.
Mr. Gardner has located a placer claim
in the same section on which he has ob
tained dirt (hat goes $10 to $50 to the pan.
There are also more or less definite re
ports of other rich strikes In the Sucker
The late heavy rains and freshets fol
lowing them in some of the sections of
Southern Oregon and Northern Califor
nia, especially along the Klamath River,
have cleared away large bodies of tail
ings and rock piles and other debris that
have accumulated in the past few months.
This has been- most beneficial to miners
ftlpnp the whpl length of the river. The
mines along the Klamath River which
have produced big In the past are re
ceiving special attention now.
The machinery that was purchased in
this city for the C. & C. mine, on Jurap-Off-Joe
Creek, a few weeks ago, Is now
in its place. The preparatory work In
connection with the operation of tho
mine, as well as the sawmill, has been
completed, and things will start up with
much vigor in a few days. Chicago par
ties are interested in this mine who have
ample capital to thoroughly develop It.
It. Browning, who at one time owned
the Greenback mine. In Josephine Coun
ty, has struck a very rich ledge near Ice
land, for which he has been made a very
large offer, but declines to dispose of the
property. The rock Is rich in gold, and
the farther he goes into the earth the
richer the ledge, which Is two feet wide.
A Probably Fatal Shot.
SPOKANE, March 4. A special from
Marcus, Wash., to tho Spokesman-Review
Frank Boyd this morning shot and
probably fatally wounded Lee Springer,
a teamster. Boyd went to Bossburg,
where he was captured by the Sheriff.
Steps are being taken to organize a bank
with $25,000 capital at lone, Morrow Coun
ty. An opera-house to cost $12,500 and to
have a seating capacity of 1000, Is to be
erected In Albany this year.
Sumpter proposes to Increase the price of
saloon llcrnsee from $400 to $1000 per year,
and allow them to be paid In quarterly
Mrs. Jane Kees, who died near Lebanon
a few days ago, left an estate valued at
about $120,000, mostly In money. She left
no children, and the money goes to her
brothers and sisters.
The hoisting engine at the Government
works at Bandon was crushed to smither
eens the other day. A big blast was set
off, and a rock weighing 25 tons fell on
the engine, fairly pulverizing It.
Recently the streets adjacent to the O.
R. & N. depot have been greatly Im
proved by covering them with coal cinders
taken out of the engine fireboxes, says
The Dalles Times-Mountaineer. If the
streets all over town could be covered
with a coat of these cinders It would be
a vast Improvement.
A. C. Pettys. ex-COunty Assessor of Mor
row County, who has a fine farm and or
chard three miles east of lone. Is of the
opinion that the late frost has Injured the
peach crop. His. trees were nearly In
bloom when the frost came. He also
states that the codlin moth was doing
a great deal of Injury to his orchard.
Pendleton will have a Chinese voter at
the June election by the name of Eng
Chung, who was born in San Francisco.
He is well educated, and reads and writes
the English language as well as the aver
age American, and to hear him talk with
out seeing him it would be Impossible to
say that he was not an American.
The Daniels Creek Railroad, to be built
by the North Bend Mill Company to tap
a body of over 3000 acres of timber land
which the company recently came into
possession of, is now an assured fact, says
the Marohfleld Sun. All of the important
right of way has been secured, and the
first length of the road to be built will
be six miles. The road Is to be broad
gauge, and the engines and rolling stock
have been ordered from the East.
A member of the sporting fraternity here
lost several hundred dollars at a card
game a few days ago. says the Prinevllle
Journal, giving In payment some certifi
cates of deposit which he did not Indorse.
Being called on next day to Indorse them,
he took them and quietly stuck them In
his pocket, where they still remain. A
warrant was Issued for his arrest upon q
charge of larceny of the checks or drafts,
thd examination being held last Tuesday
It appearing to the court from the evi
dence that the checks were lost at a game
of cards, the defendant was promptly dis
charged, and the bill of costs certified up
to the County Court.

SUNDAY AT THE REFORM SCHOOL.
Boys Get Their Mall Tlint Day anil
Arc Enfirer to Read It.
SALEM, March 4. Sunday is a day
that Is welcomed by the boys at the Ore
gon State Reform School, for on that day
occurs the distribution of the mall from
friends at home. Every Sunday morn
ing at 11 o'clock the 119 boys march Into
the school chapel, clad in their best uni
forms and Sunday shoes, and arrange
themselves in perfect order for the Sunday-school
exercises. At this gathering
there Is evidence that the school ofilciald
hold to the rule that cleanliness Is next
to Godliness, for every boy presents him
self with his clothes spotless, his face
and hands well scrubbed, his hair nicely
brushed and his shoes well blacked. And
they ore not a bad-looking crowd of boys.
It Is true there are quite a number that
have the stamp of criminal inclination
upon their form and features, but the ma
jority of them are boys of ordinary ap

per cent. The letter .-nail shows an 'n
crease of 75 per cent, while the amount
of money order business has Increased 50
per cent. Before the froe delivery system
was Instituted, there were 13 dally pa
pers taken by patrons of the Turner of
fice. Today there are 111 dally papers
received by Turner subscribers.
The free delivery system at Turner costs
the Government $100 oer menth. The re
ceipts of the office from persons who have
the benefit of the system are estimated
at $195 per month, leaving a profit of $93
per month from this portion of the pat
ronage of the office.
The Government employs three carriers
for this service, paying each of thorn $C0
per year, the carrier paying all expenses,
and furnishing his o.vn team, etc The

The profit to the Government by tho
Increased revenue Is not :h only financial
benefit attained by the fres rural delivery

Was rumored that the Government In
tended stopping the service, ihe patrons of

fund to retain the service at private expense.
LICENSE QUESTION IN JVOODBCRN.
To Be Submitted Asaln to Voters at
WOODBURN, Or., March 4. At the
regular monthly meeting of the City
Council last night, a petition of 57 free
holders of the city asking a resubmis
sion of the liquor license question to the
legal voters at the annual election on
April 2 was presented and granted.
Therefore this question, which for many
years has been an Important one In
"Woodburn. again becomes a burning is
sue. The license advocates claim an over
whelming majority, while the temperance
people maintain that the Influence of pne-
ter advantage than do the average youths
of the common schools.
The Sunday-school exercises are con
ducted by Professor W. J. Cummlngs.
principal of the educational department.
After the singing of familiar hymns and
a brief talk by Professor Cummlngs, the
boys gather in seven classes and review
the lesson prescribed for the day. Nearly
all of the boys manifest a lively interest
in tho study of the subject and give close
attention to the questions and comments
offered by the teachers.
At the close of tho services, the week's
mall Is distributed. The names on the
envelopes are read by the superintendent,
nnd each boy rises to his feet as his name.
Is called. If parents and friends could sec
the expressions of pleasure that come to
the boys' faces when they hear their
names called and could observe the degree
of disappointment felt by the boys who
get no letters, there would be few If any
In the crowd of 119 boys who would not
get a letter every week. The eagerness
to read the news from home or the kindly
sympathy and counsel of rrtends and rel
atives Is so great that the boys cannot
wait until school is dismissed, but steal
hasty glances through their letters while
waiting the signal to march out of the
chapel. A boy who enjoys a letter from
his mother is not quite lost.
After chapel exercises the boys prepare
for the mid-day meal, after partaking
of which they spend the afternoon in
taking a walk and In reading the books
and magazines In the library. This de
partment of the Institution is fairly well
supplied with periodicals, but has only
about 200 books as the beginning of a li
brary. In the evening the boys attend
services In the chapel, at which time some
one of the Salem pastors preaches or lectures.

"I enjoyed my trip Immensely: I am en
Joying perfect health," the President said
as he left the hotel.
Part of the sermon of Bishop Andrews
today to which President McKInley lis
tened has been Dointed to as a criti
cism of the President's Philippine policy.
Bishop Andrews discoursed on charity and
love, taking as his text the first verse of
the first chapter of the first epistle to
"Now, the end of the commandment is
charity out of a pure heart, and of a
good conscience and of faith unfeigned."
"Whatever may be the reason of deprav
ity," said Bishop Andrews, "whatever
may be the doctrine of depravity, man
loves his family, his neighbors and his
country. This love makes society possi
ble. We should love our friends and
neighbors and country, but we should love
the people of every other race as we love
"What Is patriotism but a narrow care
of or.e's own land and city, such as the
Romans had when they trampled out the
lives of whole nations?
"One of our greatest generals said that
the only good Indian is a dead Indian.
One of our greatest Judges asserted that
a black man has no rights which a whit
man Is bound to respect. Whether or not
this is true, there are indications of a
tendency not to value men of other races
as we value those of our own.
"We cannot recognize the excellence ot
the man with almond eyes, or whose hair
is curled a little too much. We find It
hard to recognize that all these are the
children of one great father."
