Plans ofcjthe Great Eastern
Oregn Properties.
Derelepsient Bac Proved That Ike
Ores Increase In ValKe and
Telsme "With. Depth.
SUMPTER, Or., May 7. Gold mining In
Eastern Oregon la passing out of the
"gophering" or experimental stage an!
into the stage of deep development. It
coats money to delve deep Into the bowels
of the earth, and doubt of the profitable
ness of this character of work has hereto
fore retarded Its progress. There was no
certainty that the ore bodies went down
or. If they did, that they retained the
values found near the surface. Many
Including men who professed to be min
ing engineers of experience, were of
the opinion that the mineralized beljL was
comparatively limited In extent. The
development of the past few years has
clearly demonstrated thatt Eastern Or
gon Is the largest gold belt In the world.
General ICisllngsbury, the expert In the
employ of Ie la Mar, the Idaho mine own
er, says no other field offers eo great
opportunity for prospecting. It has also
beenproven that with depth the ore be
comes richer and greater In volume and
values more evenly distributed. Min
ing In Eastern Oregon will be done to
a depth of between 2000 and 3000 feet. To
use the words of Frank S. Balllle, gen
eral manager of the Columbia mine, "the
depth to which we can go will be limited
only by mechanical problems hoisting
and pumping." Deep work can be done
cheaply In this country, as water and
timber are abundant and easy of access.
More frequently than otherwise timber
and water are on the ground which cov
ers the gold-bearing rock.
In this country the ore Is found In
chutes, the majority of which He at an
angle of 23 degress. Chutes 600 and 703
feet long have been found. Sometimes
the chutes are E0 or eo feet apart, and In
other cases 500 or 600 feet. They are gen
erally separated by quartz, all vein mat
ter, but, ,as a rule, carrying no values
to speak of. Sometimes the chutes are
found on the hanging wall, sometimes
on the footwall and again on both walls.
There Is no fixed rule for guidance. The
only way to locate the chutes and deter
mine their size and the value of the ore
In them Is to sink. In the great vein
on which the Golconda, Columbia and
North Pole are situated very few of the
chutes come to the surface. In the Gol
conda chutes have been found on the
200-foot level that did not appear on the
200-foot level.
Gettln.Ready to Sink.
Every mining property of prominence
in this country Is making ready to sink
deep. Two mines which are in a posi
tion to do this class of work are the
North Pole and the Red Boy. The lower
level in the North Pole is now 1000 feet
below the apex of the mountain, and an
encouraging feature Is that the values
on that level show more free gold than
at any higher point. E. J. Godfrey one ot
the owners of the Red -Boy, Is a firm be
liever In deep work. He says It Is the
only thing to do now that it has been
proven that the ledges go down, and that
values Increase with depth. Mr. God
frey has had experience in Alaska, the
Black Hills, Georgia, and Virginia. For
two years he has been endeavoring to in
terest British and American capital In
deep mining In Eastern Oregon, and suc
cess has attended his efforts. He has
placed an order for $55,000 worth of ma
chinery for deep work on the Red Boy.
The purchases Include the best make of
hoist engines, force pumps and drills. The
machinery bought has capacity to go 2000
feet below the present lowest level on
the Red Boy, which Is 500 feet. "Work to
be done during the coming Summer Is ex
pected to uncover an immense body of
ore. A three compartment shaft is con
templated. The ledge Is supposed to vary
in width from 12 to 25 feet.
Golconda Buys Machinery.
At the Golconda. the value of deep min
ing Is well understood. Golconda work
has proved that each 100 feet of depth has
added 30 per cent, to the value of the
ore. At the surface the chutes were low
grade, but at 200 feet they began to get
high-grade. They have increased in size
and value with depth. This Is true, also,
of the Columbia and other mines In Crack
er Creek district. The formations were
subject to leaching near the surface. It
is believed thai the Golconda with its
400 feet of depth, is below the limit ot
The Golconda will increase Its entire
working plant this year, it will put in
a double Drumm. hoist, two cages, air
compressing plant. S2 concentrators, and
increase the number of its stamps from
10 to 40 This machinery, for which 550,
000 will be set r.part, will enable the mine
to treat from 100 to 120 tons a day. The
plant is now handling between 30 and 35
tons a day. The new machinery will be
in place and ready for work by September.
The Golconda Is now down 400 feet, and
Is cutting the station for that level, but
not drifting into the ore body. H. O.
Stickney. superintendent of the mine, is
a firn believer n depth. "Anyone who
knows anything about mining." he says,
"knows that all that Is needed In this
country Is deep work. Not a mine in this
country has reached the water level. "We
expect that the water level will bring us
a larger volume of ore. and higher and
more evenly distributed values. When
we get those things we shall have mines."
Results at the Columbia.
The Columbia mine lost money until
deep mining was begun. The three-compartment
shaft Is down 400 feet. It has
been found that the ore radically changes
with doth, and becomes more profitable
for concentration and stamp milling. Be
low the line of oxidization heavy sulphides
carrying copper are found.
"Each property in the country Is a
problem In itself," said Frank S. Balllle,
general manager of the Columbia. "Thor
ough development is absolutely necessary
before a dollar should be invested In ma.
chlnery. The character of the ore is llkety
to change with depth, and In such cases
machinery not suited to the ore Is a dead
It is reported here that the Columbia
will build a cyanide' plant and add It
stamps, making 20 stamps In all. Manager
Balllle will neither affirm nor deny the
reported increase in capacity. Men wh
have knowledge of the Columbia's af
fairs assert that an Increase will soon be
necessary, as the present plant is too small
to handle the output of ore.
Digging Which Turned Oat $1000
In 20 Days.
H. TV". Holden, who owns mining lands
in Douglas County, was at the Perkins
yesterday. Ho predicts that Oregon will
turn out more gold within five years than
Alaska will, with all the talk about Nome.
He exhibited two vials of gold, tasen
from a placer mine at the junction of
Cow Creek with the south fork of the
Umpqua, where one man had taken out
$1000 in 20 days by the primitive sluice
box process At present, Louis Ash. the
fortunate -possessor of this rich digging?,
has to rpen? entirely upon rains for
water to supply h!s sluice box. and so the
mining season on that particular claim
Is very short. Mr. Holden Is forming a
company, however, to bring water a dis
tance of 11 miles In a flume, and when
this Improvement has been made, a hy
draulic system can "be worked the year
around. The ground pans out from 35 to
76 cents per yard, which is exceedingly
rich. 10 cents being conoidered good pay
for gravel under the Influence of a hy
draulic pipe. Louis Ash has 1100 acres
of such land, so there is no danger of
the diggings giving, out right away.
The miners of Douglas County have
done well th!s year, Mr. Holden says, as
the wet season has been of longer dura
tion than usual. .

Early Shearing.
State Land Agent L. B. Goer sheared
his band of CO sheep last week, the yield
being about eight pounds of wool each.
So far as known, this Is the first shear
ing done In this vicinity this season. The
sheep were Merinos and Shropshlres. The
wool was sold tc the Salem "Woolen Mills,
but the price paid is not announced. Mr.
Geer said today that he had two reasons
for shearing early. One reason was that
he believes It is good for the sheep to
stand out in a heavy rain Just after being
sheared, the rain driving off the ticks that
Infest the sheep. Another reason was
that he believes the price of wool is
higher now than it will be later, and he
preferred to shear early and avoid a pos
sible drop In prices.
Manager Coshow, of the woolen mills,
said today that his company is offering
from 16 to IS cents, for this year's clip of
wool. Several small clips have been re
ceived, all Indicating that the quality will
be better than usual. As soon as tho
present spell of rainy weather Is past,
shearing will bo general In this vicinity.
Xaval Militia Crnlnc.
Governor Geer today received from the
Assistant Secretary of the Navy Depart
ment a letter stating that it is the desire
of the department that the regularly or
ganized Naval Militia of tho Pacific Coast
states shall each take a cruise of practi
cal Instruction and drill on board a naval
vessel during the present season. In this
connection It is stated that the United
States gunboats Bennington and Concord
have recently been detached from duty on
the Asiatic station, and ordered to the
Pacific Coast, where they are to go out
of commission for repairs. In view of the
fact that no other vessel Is available for
the purpose, as In previous years, the
department considers It possible to employ
these gunboats In the annual tour of
duty, previously to placing them out of
commission. The Bennington and the
Concord will each accommodate 75 Naval
Militiamen, but will not be able to handle
a greater number at one time. The letter
says: "In view of the present circum
stances and conditions of the service, the
department would be pleased to know
whether It would be practicable to divide
the Naval Militia of Oregon Into bodies
of 75 men each, and thus enable them to
participate in the usual annual cruise.
The tour of duty. If given, will continue
for a drill period of seven days for each
party embarked, and the general condi
tions and arrangements will be upon the
same basis as that of last year on the
United States steamer Badger." The mat
ter has been referred to Adjutant-General
Sentence Remitted.
Governor Geer today remitted the un
served portion of the sentence of Elmer
Scott, who has served six weeks of a
six months' term in the Washington
County Jail on a conviction of the crime
of sodomy. The remission is granted
upon the condition that the subscribers to
the petition for a pardon will see that,
as soon as Scott Is released, he Is placed
aboard the s-hJp Asplce. now about to
put to sea from Portland. Scott Is IS
years old, and arrangements were made
at his request to ship him as a seaman.
"Will Meet Prone Men.
Charles Long, director for Marlon Coun
ty of the Cured Fruit Association of the
Pacific Northwest, has arranged to visit
oeveral of the fruit-producing sections of
the county in the Interests of the associa
tion. The prosecution of Spring work on
their farms kept many of the prune
growers from being present at the meet
ing a week ago, when a large number of
the growers signed contracts. Mr. Long's
purpose is to hold local meetings, which
the growers of each vicinity may attend
without inconvenience to their work. He
will be prepared to explain any clauses
of the association contract that may not
be fully understood, and will glveall
growers a chance to sign the contracts.
The dates for his meetings are as fol
lows: Liberty, May 14, 7:30 P. M.; Rose-
dale. May 15, 7:30 P. M.; Jefferson. May

Bernard Daly's Caiapaljrn.
Hon. Bernard Daly. Democratic nomi
nee for Congress from tho Second Dis
trict, was In Salem today shaking hands
with his friends. Mr. Daly says that
owing to the fact that Mr. Tongue will
be in "Washington during the campaign,

Professor J. J. Krapps. who last Satur

At the last meeting' of the local camp
of Indian War Veterans, a resolution was
unanimously passed Issuing to the In
dian War Veterans and their friends the
following address:
"In 1SS6, when Colonel T. B. Wait was
our first grand encampment, he said In a
speech before the grand encampment,
that we must organize and get every
vote of the veterans and their friends to
vote together for our Interest. It Is now
Henry B. Tscker, Oregon pioneer of
1S52, vrho died at Beaverton, Sat
Hrday, aged 00.
SO years since we went to our country's
rescue, and what have we received? Com
paratively nothing. You should show how
many votes we have. Knock somebody
down that Is in our way, and then they
will want to know what the old fellows
want. They think we are dead, or If not
dead, we have so little sense that they
can fool us a plenty.
" 'If the G-and Army of the Republic
had not had votes, and used them, would
there have been anything said about their
patriotism? When a member of Congress
is in political accord with the House of
Representatives and does nothing for us,
see that he stays at home next time;
then, and not until then, x will you get
what Is Justly your due.'
"Though spoken 14 years ago, comrades,
we ask you, were not the words of our
first grand commander. Colonel T. B.
Walt, prophetic' words? Have we re
ceived anything, and is there any pros
pect that we will ever? Every two years.
Just before election, we get a dose off Mr.
Tongue's taffy, spread on thick with Col
onel Wood's confidential-assurance mop.
that in a few months at the farthest we
will be looked after to our hearts' con
tent. "It is now 44 years that we have been
seeking recognition In vain; now let us
appeal, to our comrades and friends to
stand by us, and go for snide Congress
men's scalps. Leave not a stone un
turned, nor a vote uncast against those
do-nothing Congressmen, who think that
with a little taffy Just before election
they can fool us until we have all passed
Into our graves, and then the future his
torian will write, '7000 Indian War veter
ans of the Pacific Northwest, within 50
years, all passed Into their graves with
out recognition, that very small politi
cians might go to Congress.' "

Principality Is Benlnd Her Record
D oven By Hall Arrives From
Shanghai Sealers' Geed Catca.
The German ship Seestern. the last ship
to leave the Coiumola River in 1SS9, and
the British ship Principality, the first to
sail In 1900, both Arrived out together Sat
urday. The Principality, which left the
Columbia January 1. made the outward
run in 125 days, and the Seestern. which
left December 31. was accordingly 126 days
on -the way. Either of these passages la
under the average, but as botn of the
vessels are very fast sailers, they were
expected to a little better. With the ex
ception of the Glenholm. which sailed a
day later than the Principality, none of
the rest of the January tleet got away be
f or the 16th, and between the 20th and the
31st there were 11 of them bunched, so
that wc may look for numerous arrivals
out within the next few weeks.
There are still four December ships from,
Portland to be heard from, and five from
San Francisco. Puget Sound, as usual, is
In the rear, and none of the December
fleet from Tacoma or Seattle for Europe
has arrived out yet. The fleet from the
Pacific Coast to Europe la December In
cluded 36 vessels, of which Portland dis
patched 15, San Francisco 14. and Seattle
and Tacoma four vessels. The January
fleet from the Coast for Europe included
27 ships, of Which Portland dispatched 14,
San Francisco 12, and Seattle and Tacoma
Hawaii Feels the Need of a Free-Ship
WASHINGTON. April 29. In reply to
the arguments advanced to Congressman
McCleary and others, in opposition to
granting American registers to essel9 en
gaged in the Hawaiian trade, particularly
with reference to vessels in the North Pa
cific trade, several answers have been
made. These answers have not been made
on behalf of the steamer Garonne, which
has been given the American flag by a spe
cial bill, but with a view to securing leg
islation either In the Hawaiian bill or In
a special bill for a number of vessels that
were glvenMhe Hawaiian flag prior to
January 1. 1899. Among this number are
the following:
Falls of Clyde. Star of Russia, Star of
Bengal, Wlllscott, Euterpe, Star of France
and Star of Italy.
Of this number, all but the Star of Italy
and the Star of Bengal were included in
the Hawaiian bill when that measure was
In the hands of the conference committee,
and special bills allowing them an Ameri
can register have been considered in both
branches of Congress.
Since August 12. 1S9S. It Is held that Ha
waiian citizens and Hawaiian vessels have
become American along with the acqui
sition of the territory, and that In foster
ing or benefiting the few vessels to be af
fected by this legislation. Congress is
doing no injury to American shipping, be
cause it Is legislating for Its own, and
that everyeneflt and assistance that was
due the American shipping theretofore
should now be gladly and generously given
to those coming under the previous laws
of Hawaii.
It Is claimed the sailing vessels In ques
tion were purchased and utilized In, mov
ing the crop of 1839, there being mean
while a very strong demand for more ves
sels to move that crop. Inasmuch as the
flag of Hawaii Is no longer recognized
upon the sea, that sovereignty having
ceased to exist, and now being without
any flag save that of the United States,
and inasmuch as all these- .vessels are to
be used In the Hawaiian trade, and have
been practically so used since August 12.
1S9S. American vessels, though not protect
ed by Its flag, and only entitled to the flag
of the Hawaiian Government, which does
not exist. It follows that these vessels, if
American registry is refused as asked for,
will be left without a flag or the right to
do American-Hawaiian business, and are
liable to confiscation wherever they may
appear. It Is asserted that some method
should have been devised at first by which
these vessels, having been duly registered
under Hawaiian laws, might have the pro
tection of the American flag, but that very
important provision was overlooked or
neglected by the governments and the Ha
waiian Commission, hence the necessity
of this legislation.
Victoria Sealing- Schooner Will

1448 skins (the catches of the Favorite
and the Annie E. Paint), and the crew
of the latter schooner, who had been left
at Clayoquot, after her 739 skins were
transferred to the Wlllapa. Captain Mc

the Viva 707, the Umbrlna 70S,' Triumph

average catch Is 5S9, which will no doubt
be Improved upon when the completed
totals are obtained.
Dovenhy Hall Arrive, Thirty-Seven
Days Front Shanghai.
Tho British ship Dovenby Hall, which has
quite a record for fast passages, arrived
In yesterday, after only a moderate run
of 37 days from Shanghai. The voyage
generally requires about 40 days, but the

she has been expected for the past week.
