The deal on the property has been pend
ing- many months, and tho terms were
reached here Saturday, when the Inter
ested parties left for Grangeville to se
cure the necessary records and signa
tures. Van B. DeLashmutt, of Spokane, nego
tiated the deal for Sweeney, and the pay
ment made today was through the Lewis
ton National Bank, of this city.
The price exceeds perhaps that paid
for any prospect in the mining history of
tho Northwest, and this seems to bo but
consistent with the Interesting history of
the property. The mine was located Aug
ust 10. 1S9S. by two poor prospectors.
Young and Bobbins. Young's story of the
discovery was that they had run out or
grub, and ho went hunting deer. Re
turning at nightfall and when near camp,
he picked up a piece of quartz from a
40-foot ledge and carried It to camp. In
the morning, tho quartz was roasted and
a rich assay resulted. They hastened
to civilization and made the discovery
public at Florence. Then followed tho
great Buffalo Hump boom, and peoplo
flocked into the district from all over the

paid $23,000 down. He then spent $31,000
In developing the property during the
winter, sinking a CO-foot shaft- No other
work has been done on the mine.
Before the first payment was due Jake
Rice and Ferry Mallory instituted, a grub

mine has since been tied up In litigation.
Rice, who was e merchant, contended in
his suit that he grubstaked Young. Rob
bins and Mallory to visit and locate the
mine, which had been previously discov
ered by Mallory, and that the latter, after
leaving Young and RoDDlns In the moun
tains, gave them a map to guide them to
the bonanza. Rice and Mallory were
awarded one-half of the mlno by the Dis
trict Court, and the case was then taken
to tho Supreme Court, where a decision Is
now pending. This decision is noir Im
material, as Sweeneybas purchased the
Interests of all parties! Several rich min
ing syndicates have at various times ne
gotiated for the mine. Tho De La Mar
Company offered to spend $50,000 In devel
oping and then pay $500,000 for tho prop
erty. This and similar offers were re
fused. After the discovery of the mine Bobbins
began drinking heavily, and died as a
result of dissipation. Dell Butterworth,

from Young and Bobbins, died at Grange

.NOTHING LIKE PIIOSPECTISG.
Old-Tlraer, Golna: to Snmptcr, Tells
of Its Fascination and Toll.
Nicholas Gray, an old-time prospector
of the Pacific Coast, passed through Port
land yesterday on his way from Califor
nia to Eastern Oregon, where he Intends
to put In the Summer hunting for ledges
containing free gold. Mr. Gray says, "once
a prospector, always a prospector," and
so he cannot resist the temptation to try
his luck In the Sumpter mining district,
where he feels assured there are more
valuable properties to bo discovered than
have even now been opened.
"That entire country." he says, "is full
of quarts ledges, and they are all rich
ones, too." Ho will not hunt base prop
ositions, however, but will pick out the
free-milling ledges, as these can be made
to pay the expenses of development. Rock
that Is rich enough to enable a man to
make good wages with-a hand mortar la
what he la after, a the discoverer of such
a ledge need be. In no hurry In hunting
up capitalists to sell out to. "The poor
nrosDector who strikes fre-m!lMnfr em
j need have no uneasiness about unpaid
store duis or unsoia stock." he says. "He
can pound out the gold at his leisure, and
the business men at the nearest town will
always be glad to sell him goods."
Mr. Gray will outfit at Sumpter. by pur
chaslng a pack horec. saddle, pick and pan.
The Safest and Most Reliable
The RICHNESS of APENTA WATER In natural saline aperients
renders it the most valuable and safest laxative and purgative.
and he will provide himself with a light
shelter tent and some blankets, while a
supply of flour, bacon, tea, coffee and
sugar will be purchased, sufficient for a
two months picnic among the higher al
titudes of the Blue Mountains, about the
head of the John Day. He expects to
meet quite a number of prospectors there
this season, as there will be quite a rush
of California goldhunters alone.
"A prospector's life possesses the charm
of always hoping to etrike It big." he
says, "and even should be not succeed,
he can enjoy himself as no city denizen
can. The Blue Mountains are delightful
In the Summer and early Fall, and when
one tires of prospecting be may try his
hand at hunting or fishing. There ts
plenty of game to supply one with fresh
meat all the time; the larger streams
abound In fish, and the pure mountain air
and water keep the prospector In the bet
of health. There is only one risk to run.
and that Is of accident, and so it is safer
for two prospectors to go together, as a
man may fall off some steep ledge and
break a limb, while climbing around In
search of cropping:. Where two can agree
for a whole season, the prospector's life is
the happiest one In existence."
The successful prospector, according to
Mr. Gray, must te a man of Intelligence
and have at least a natural insight of the
laws of geology. He must be able to
Judge on looking over the face of a coun
try whether the formation Is volcanic or
alluvial; he must be a good guesser as to
the pitch of a certain ledge, so as to know
how far down the hill to start his tunnel.
In order to cross-cut; and he must nex-r
get tired or hungry. When he feels ex
haustion or hunger coming on, he must
pitch his camp, unpack his horse and stake
him out to grass. Then he can build a
fire, cook some bacon, bread and coffee
and rest until he feels better.
"Pocket hunting" has been one of Mr.
Gray's occupations, and this he considers
the most fascinating of alL The pocket
hunter tolls along the steep mountain
sides, perhaps far from water, and he car
ries a little of the aqueous fluid in a can
with him to wash a handful of dirt here
and a handful there, following up "colors"

found, which may yield several hundred
dollars. The pocket-hunter, however. Is
fortunate who finds enough in one pocket

ing was in the pine-clad hllfc of Southern
Oregon. He does not consider Eastern

SOUTH OF ASHLAXD.
Activity In the Mining- District "Tear
ASHLAND, Or- April a Unusual
activity is now going on In the mining
district adjacent to Cole's Station, near
the California boundary line, and Just
south of Ashland. S. F. Fore and "Doc"
Hamilton, recently from Los Angeles,
have acquired the Pool mine, four -miles
west of Cole's, and at present have a
force of 20 men engaged in' building a
wagon road from the Hilt North Star
and Harrison mines to their newly ao
quired pioperty. The wagon road covers
a survey of five miles. The new propri
etors have also arranged with the Ash
land Iron Works to put in a new 10-stamp
mill, with enough steam power to add 10
additional stamps as soon as required.
The ledge on the Pool mine is a large one,
with a width of from 10 to 12 feet, the
rock from It 'being free-milling, and going
$10 to $U' to the ton.
The same men who own the Pool mine
are the proprietors of the Sterling ledge,
four miles west of Cole's. At present they
have a force of 12 men engaged in de
velopment work on the Sterling, the ledge
of which varies from 7 to 10 feet In width.
Tho 10-stamp mill on the property Is now
being overhauled and improved, and two
mortars are being made for It in this city.
The ore from the Sterling is free-milling,
and goes from $S to $10, and there Is an
abundance of It In sight.

The CHILDS has grown to be the universal cigar. Everybody smokesjt
on every occasion. Everybody likes it, everybody recommends it, and every
body acknowledges it as the leader of all 5c cigars.
Don't forget that last year 56,167,000 CHILDS cigars were sold. This year
we are going to make it 100,000,000 or more.- Nearly every first-class cigar
dealer has the CHILDS for sale.
You may never have smoked a 5c cigar before, but that is no reason
why you should not try a GEO. W. CHILDS. Those who have tried it say that it
is a great deal better than the majority of 10c cigars.

along without law courts, for one thing.
It is unfair to expect General Randall with

there Is no trouble about getting title to

the reputation of being a peaceable citizen.
Eslabe was married to a joung woman
from whom he had been separated for
some time previous to the commission of
the crime. He alleged that his wife's
friendship for Gates and the taunts flung
at him by the latter Induced him to com
mit the murder. It was proven, however,
that he robbed the dead body of his vic

fact militated against him when the cae
was tried. He received the death pemlty,
but was twice reprieved before the sen
