A Sensational Quartz Vein
'Struck in Jackson County.
$1600 .WITH MORTAR IN ONE DAY
Oa-Ledgre That Had Been. Bonded for
$000 Southern Orejjon Ledgres
Comint to the Front.
JACKSONVILLE, Or., July 18. Early
in the Spring H. B. Nye, a Montana man.
came to Southern Oregon to look over the
mines and determine for himself what, if
anything, there was hero in quartz
worthy of development. He spent several
months looking over the field, and study
ing formations, and In the meantime
tried to bond certain properties In suc
cessful operation, but failed. Finally he
discovered a ledge on Gall's Creek, which
had been located by another man, and on
which a shaft was sunk a few feet deep
to hold It. He bonded the ledge for 5600,
and commenced to work on it. After two
months' work in running a tunnel along
the course of the ledge, he was rewarded
last week by striking a pocket or pay
chute of remarkable richness. The ore
Is literally knitted together with gold, and
Mr. Nye, anxious to pay off the bond
and secure a deed to the property, occu
pied himself with a small hand mortar
for a day, and pounded out $1000. He
secured title to the property, and since
then has taken out $500). and has fully
$10,000 more In sight, with no knowledge,
of course, of what further development
If this strike had been made In the
dreary' and desolate regions of the Arctic,
the press of the country would have
taken it up and heralded it abroad in
flaming headlines, and thousands of men
would have rushed to the frigid zone at
the peril of their lives, assuming, appar
ently, that the greater the distance and
peril, the greater the possible reward.
Here rich discoveries are so common they
do not create mucn excitement.
Many persons interested in mines and
mining have been drawn here in the past
year, through the influence of local no
tices of the various mining enterprises
of the section, and particularly is this
the case with those looking after quartz
properties. It has taken a long time to
dispel v-ie impression, originated in an
early day, and persisted in for many
years, that this was wholly a pocket
country, with the pay all on the surface,
and no true-fissure veins carrying ore
of uniform value. The proof that the
district Is almost a network of true veins,
and many of them of great value, is now
so overwhelming It Is no longer disputed;
and this fact has Induced many quartz
men to come In here, and today there are
250 to 400 ledges undergoing development
work In the county, and probably 25
quartz mills in operation, with a score or
more of arrastras. And yet, so far as
the quartz interest is concerned, pros
pecting has hardly commenced.
That the various sections are capable
of intelligent segregation and classifica
tion there can be no question. For ex
ample, the formation of the Gallce Creek
section is largely slate, and the various
roagneslan compounds. The vein matter
Is mainly hard, splintery quartz, with talc
and calcspar. Pyrites of copper and
iron abound, and there Is more or less
sine blende, barite, lime carbonate, ar
senical iron and here anJ there galena.
The section lying north of Rogue River
and embracing Grave, Wolf, Coyote.
Louse and Jump-Off -Joe Creeks is main
ly metamorphic slate and quartzlte, with
much serpentine and fragmentary breccia.
The section as a whole, extending from
Rogue River to Cow Creek, might be ap
propriately characterized as serpentine,
variously tilted, and twisted, and mingled
and mixed with an Indefinable pudding
stone. The Elk Creek section Is pre-eminently
volcanic. Here the overlapping basaltic
lavas are everywhere present in various
states of decomposition and fineness, with
scoria, slag, vltrifactions, pumice, etc
There are also unmistakable evidences of
widespread glacial morine. The surface
rock Is a composite of basalt and basalt
and glacial deposit, forming a peculiarly
incongruous and Interesting breccia. If
such it may bo called, nowhere else met
with in the district in such sharp outline
and certitude as here. This section has
every characteristic of the Bohemia dis
trict. The same volcanic Indications are
present, the vein matter Is base and of
the same general character, the trend of
the ledges Is the same, and they are large,
like those of Bohemia, The ore is mainly
low grade, but rich stratas here and there
run inlc the thousands per ton. The
wr'ter believes this is destined to be tho
leading quartz section in Southern Ore
eon r but it will take time and capital to
Bohemia. It will bo remembered, was
discovered In 1S58, and while it was be
lieved by many to be a district worthy
of careful investigation, no showing was
made there of any particular consequence
until a few years since. It is believed
that in live years Southern Oregon will
have made such strides In the develop
ment of her quartz Industry that her po
sition in this respect will be second to no
other section in the state.

President Hawleys lecture was exem

significant statistics, and it was a grand
appeal for the construction of the canal
as a mighty factor in the industrial devel
opment of the Northwest. The engineer
ing difficulties were made plain by draw
ings and maps, and It was explained how
easily they could be overcome with the
Improved methods of constructing locks,
and the use of the channeling machine
in cutting through rock. It was made
very plain that the plan was feasible, and
not beset with serious difficulties. It was
shown that the largest sea-going vessels
could be taken through the canal in 24
hours, and that vessels loaded with wheat
from Portland or San Francisco could
make 10 trips yearly to Liverpool, where
as only four round trips In three years
are made around the Horn. The comple
tion of the canal would enable the Pa
cific Coast to get its wheat Into market
ahead of India or other countries. The
speaker estimated that the cost of con
struction would be about $100,000,000, and
that It would net 3 per cent on the Invest
ment from tolls within three years, as
4,000,000 tons of commerce would pass
through the canal every year. At pres

duty of citizenship in unmeasured terms.
He paid his respects to the Civil War and
the Spanish War veterans, and compli
mented them for their patriotism. He
also called attention to the Christian mis

extracts are taken from the address:
"Yes, there Is a threatening cloud In

by the most improved weapons of modern

CHICAGO, July 18,-The executive
beards of the Illinois Brick Company,
representing practically all the brick man

makers' Alliance have signed a three
years' agreement The agreement was a
compromise, as the terms give the manu
facturers the privilege of hiring whom
they please, while the sympathetic strike
question remains about as before. The
agreement goes Into effect on July 23. It
provides for the arbitration of all differ
ences by a board composed of three mem
bers of the alliance and three manufac
turers, the six to choose a seventh. It
also provides that in case of difference,
work will continue until the arbitration
board gives Its decision.
The wage scale is practically the same
as that in the agreement of 1899. Eight
hours constitute a day's work, as In the
old agreement. The signing of the agree

SCARCITY OF SAILORS..
Coost-Bonnd Ships Pay HIs;h Wages
Honolulu papers Just received report the
German ship Hera as sailing irom that
port for Portland. She has 1E00 tons of
cement on board, having discharged only
a portion of her Hamburg cargo at Hono
lulu. None of the importers of cement in
this city have received advices of the
vessel coming to Portland, and most of
them are of the opinion that the vessel
Ma headed for Puget Sound. The Hono
lulu Republican has the following notice
of tho Hera's departure:
"There is a scarcity of sailors along the
water front, and the men who are look
ing for Jobs are holding out for high
wages. Yesterday the German ship Hera
got away, after being delayed several
days trying to get a crew. A large crowd
of the men willing to ship were at the
Consul's office yesterday, but they all
held out for $25 for the run. The captain
objected to paying this, but finally found
he could not obtain men for less, and so
he came to terms. The vessel came here
from Hamburg with a load of cement.
Her sailors were engaged for the voyage
at the regular rates for deep-water ves
sels. When they arrived here and found
that coastwise seamen were getting from
$30 to $35, the men struck" when thoy were
asked to take the Hera to Portland at
the rate of wages for wjbich they were
employed on leaving Europe. The Hera
discharged part of her cargo hore and
will take the rest to Oregon. A few
months ago, when vessels were arriving
here almost dally from Newcastle, there
were plenty of sailors. Now there are hut
few, so to get crews captains must pay
wages far In advance of. any paid from
this port before."

cal School ship St. Mary's is undergoing
repairs here on account of terrible
weather experienced on the passage hith

Conn., June 15, with 100 cadets. When
three days out she encountered a cyclone,
which soon prevented headway, and on
Sunday night. June 17, it was necessary
to heave to, and so she remained three
days. Commander William II. Reeder
remained on deck throughout the storm,
and was thrown and his head cut and
back badly strained. The fourth day the
storm abated, when sail was set for the
Azores. A reckoning taken showed that
the ship had been blown 200 miles out of
her course, and that she was then oft
the coasjt of Virginia. The wind badly
strained all the rigging. The intention
was to make the Azores for repairs.
There was good weather until Just off
Fayal, when another storm set In, and
for two days the vessel labored in a
heavy sea, attempting to make shore.
Finding this was Inadvisable, a course
was laid for Lisbon. Off the coast of
Spain another storm was encountered
and again the St, Mary's hove to for a
day and a half. The St. Mary's finally
reached Lisbon. 10 days overdue. After
making repairs she will start for the
