of years the Oregon Packing Company
has occupied the three-stcfry structure
on the corner of Bast Seventh and Bel

about It years and has been operated
with more or less success until the pres
ent management came into possession.
The main building is G0k1W feet, and some
additions have been made to it, but for
several years It has been found too smalt
for Its purposes. Every year the output
has Increased and the storing capacity
has been taxed. The present building will

be several times more than tho present

"WEEK OF EXCITEMENT.
Several Rich Strikes Reported, and
Locators Are Active.
BAKER CITY, Feb. 17. The past week
has been full of excitement In mining
circles. New strikes In well-known prop
erties has been the order of the day.
The new strike In the Flag Staff mine,
in the Virtue district, seven miles from
Baker City, started the excitement, with
tho announcement of better than $100 ore
at the 300-foot level. News of this strike
spread during the night, and before morn
ing It la reported that no less than 40
men were driving stakes on the unclaimed
ground in that vicinity.
In both the Chlor.de and Red Jacket rich
ore wag found, the latter reporting one
exceptionally high assay, and an average
of more than $8 from numerous tests
across the face of the ledge.

MANY MINING CLAIMS FILED.
Prospectors Are Crowding: the Grant
County Hills in Spite of Cold.
CANYON CITY, Feb. 16.-Interest in
mining In Grant county is growing more
Intense from day to day. Prospectqrs are
crowding Into the hills, despite the cold
weather, and locations are being recorded
rapidly. There were 219 recorded in Janu
ary, and 83 for the first 10 days In Febru
ary. Active prospecting has been going
on all winter, and it has become the opin
ion of those who have studied tho matter
thoroughly that the great mineral zono
extends northwest and southeast through
Antelope, Canyon City and Vale. Along
this line and north and south of it is
expected to be the greatest mining activ
ity and the heaviest production of
precious metals the world has ever
Minerals In Morrow County.
HEPPNER, Feb. 17. Beginning 15 miles
fiouth from Heppner, th's county has 10
townships of well-timbered mountain
lands, which invite prospectors. Coal has
been found, but never systematically
searched for. Gold and silver have been
found In streaks, but generally pinched out
before any considerable bod'os were
reached. D. B. Stalter has Just returned
to Heppner after working for sev
eral months on prospects situated 20 miles
south of hero. He found considerable
float and seams of low-grade ore, carry
ing gold and silver, but they pinched out
before leading to permanent veins. The
southern part of Morrow county borders
the parts of Grant and Baker where sUch
mining developments are being carried out.

STUBBORN MIDNIGHT FIRE.
Blase In Union Block "Was Dlfllcnlt
A stubborn fire raged for one hour at
midnight last night In the second and
third stories of the Union block, at the
corner of First and Stark streets. The
blaze originated In the room of some young
men who lodge on the third floor, during
their absence. It Is said, and had gained
considerable headway before It was discov
ered. The alarm Was turned In at 11:25,
but by that time the flames had extended
through three rooms on that floor and
had burned through Into two apartments
on the eecond floor. It was a difficult
fire to fisht, ewins to the manner the

building Is constructed, end but for the
efficient and Intelligent ork of the fire
department, the entire block would have
been gutted. As It was, all the fire was
not extinguished for nearly an hour.
It is thought the damage to the building
will be about JGOO or ?S00, and the loss on
furniture by fire, smoke and water will
exceed that sum. It is not known how
the blaze originated.
"THE ANONYMOUS ASS."
Excoriation of Persons Wbo Employ
"the Shield of Literary Rnscnllty."
PORTLAND, Feb. 16.-(To the Editor.)
That was a dirty piece of newspaper cor
respondence in your issue of the 13th,
under the caption of "Sources of Boer
Sympathy," and over the pseudonym of
"Common Sense." It was a filthy blotch
on on otherwise clean sheet one that has
steadfastly refused to follow the yellow
covers and mud-slingers Into the mire. I
am not saying that American Journalism
Is the creator or the fosterer of the
anonymous ass. He is of ancient lineage.
Small wonder he Is sore at the Germans.
That celebrated German philosopher, Ar
thur Schopenhauer, had already token
him to task. Schopenhauer calls an
onymity that shield of all literary rascal
ity, originally introduced under the pre
text of protecting the honest critic, but
experience has shown where there is one
case of this sort there are 100 where it
merely serves to take all responsibility
from the man who Cannot stand by what
hehrss said. Rousseau say3 ce y honorable
man ought to sign his articles, and that
no one is honorable wlio does not do so;
and both Goethe and Riemer have noth
ing but contempt for the Htccary poltroon
who has not the courage to reveal hl3
Your correspondent has linked the re
publican party with a sneer at the priest
hood of a certain religion. The principles
of thef republican party are Incorporated
intoits platforms, and It Is not respon
sible for the actions or utterances of the
individual of high or low degree. "When a
man starts out to trace fundamentals, and
by a natural gravitation wallows In the
stink of earth, alternating between stale
bear, rotten cheese, butcher shops and
dark-cellar spleen, ho is not one jot more
ulsgusted with the community In which
he lives than that community is with him,
and there is but one place that I know
of where he will not find the abusive
Dutch and quarrelsome Irish, and that
place is what cultured folk call hades,
and plain people call hell. The Irishmen
that he lauds Qre quite welcome to the
quality of admiration that they have at
tracted. The Germans that he vilifies
have nb apologies for such as he. They
have been among the foreleaders of Amer
ican civilization; It was their Frederick
who did not conceal his contempt for
George's treatment of the American colo
nists; It was their Frederick who refused
to allow the mercenary Hessians to cross
his territory and come to America to pil
lage the country, ravish women and carry
off young girls; Steuben, De Kalb and
SIgel gave us German honor and German
glory, and the impress that Germans have
left upon American civilization and Amer
ican patriotism is not to be approached
with, an inexperienced pen.
The bugaboo of Manila bay has been
overlooked. Dewey was there to smash
the Spaniard. The civilized world knew
of the American antipathy to foreign en
tanglements; the policy of tfiese states
was shaped by extraneous events; the
hindsight of the White House was clearer
than Its foresight; but when a policy was
defined or partly defined, the German em
peror, in the person of his ambassador at
Washington, assured the nation of Ger
many's friendship and Germany's neutral
ity. The German admiral was In Manila
bay. primarily for the same reason that
the English admiral was there, as well as
other admirals whose country had sub
jects cooped up in the Philippines, and if
there was any landgrabbing in sight to
pass the time away, all of them would
have been at It. The conduct of the Ger
mans, to say the least, was open and
above board, while the conduct of tho
English was and Is today Falstafflan. The
exigencies of diplomacy will explain a
good many things that are now obscure,
and. It is devoutly to be wished, will also
explain away the earmarks of unlon-Jack-assery
now discernible in Washington.
That an Irishman feeds fat on the an
cient grudge he bears England Is a favor
ite subject for the small-beer essayist.
It never occurs to the surface philosopher
that England's difficulty was at one time
America's opportunity, or that that word
opportunity Is big with history. In the
premises, the Irishman hates the devil's
trinity, to-wlt. Chamberlain. Milncr and
Rhodes, their privies and their red-handed
machinations, and his hate Includes their
predecessors In past generations. That
the Irishman hates the Englishman is not
true. If that were the case, he would
often be hating his associate and friend,
ono whose sympathies is shaped by the
congenital hand, and one who does not
Inject politics Into opinions nor call vile
names. That kind of dirty work Is the
business of the anonymous ass.
The Irishman sees In the relentless cru
elty at Cape Town in 1799 exactly what
was taking place at the same time in his
own native land; he sees In the tragedy
of Slachtersnek the same red hand that
hung his compatriots for the same cause:
he sees In the sufferings and death of
Pleter Maurlts Retlef and his comrades a
reflection of his own history and his own
travails; he sees in the sickness, poverty
and distress of the South African Dutch
In 1838 his own Sklbbereen; he -sees in the
arrogance and treachery of Frere. Loch
and Mllner what has marked his history
down the centuries; he sees in the plead
ings of Oom Paul with Chamberlain tho
same entreaty of the Dutch embassies to
Cromwell. "All, all. all. except the free
dom of my country"; he sees on the Tu
gela the spirit and the glory of Texel;
and he hears In the hymn of the Boer
the dying prayer of the elder Tromp, "O
Lord, be merciful to me and thy poor
people." How in the name of God can
his sympathies, be otherwise than what
Ramblers are ail-the-year-round wheels.

BRET HARTE'S ARRIVAL.
A Pistol Ball Nearly Spoiled His First
Drinlc in Gold Dlgglne.
"I entered the barroom. It was crowded
with miners and traders, and a few smart
ly dressed professional-looking men. Here
again my vanity led me Into extrava
gance. I could not bear to address the
Important, whlte-shlrt-sleeved and diamond-pinned
barkeeper as a mefe boyish

enough to demand a drink, and laid down,
alas! another quarter.
"I had asked my question, the bar
keeper had handed me the decanter, and
I had poured out the stuff with as much '

fortune, I may relate It here.
"The celling of the saloon was support

IS Inches square, standing in a line paral

two feet from it. The front of the bar
was crowded with customers, when sud
denly, to my astonishment, they one and
all put down their glasses and hurriedly
backed Into the spaces between the col
umns. At the same moment a shot was
fired from the street through the large
open doors that stood at right angles with
the front of the counter and the columns.
"The bullet raked and splintered the
moldings of the counter front, but with
no other damage. The shot was returned
from the upper end of the bar, and then,
for the first time, I became aware that

"The bystanders in range were fully
protected by the wooden columns; the
barkeeper had ducked below the counter
at the first shot. Six snots were ex-
changed by the duelists, but as far as I
could see nobody was hurt. A mirror was
smashed, and my glass had part of Its
rim carried cleanly away by the third
shot and Its contents spilled.
T had remained standing near the coun
