There was a scene on the streets Tues
day moraine, says the Garfield Enter'
prise, that rivaled Ben Hut's chariot
race. One six-horse team and one four
horse team loaded with grain were eom
ing up Main street, between Third and
Fourth .and a six-horse team with a trail
wagon, also loaded, was approaching
Main Btreet at right angles, by way of
Third street. All were hauling to the
same warehouse and there was a desire
on the part of each driver to get ahead
so that he would get unloaded without
waiting. They began to whip up and
came areund the corner at the postoffiee
on the run. At one time they were near
ly abreast and the street was full of hur
rying teams, wheat wagons, long hurt
ling whip lashes and the yells of the
drivers. It was an exciting moment and
ended by 'the trail wagon train getting
tb e coveted position ahead.

Mr. Frank Middleton recently in the
Santiam mines for tho Orcgonian gives
an excellent report of his trip there, pub
lished in the Sunday edition. With it is
a picture of Hank Smith and one of

report, leaving out his history of the
The lutelhgent development of the
mineral resources of lann county, now in
active progress, will havs a tendency to
me miuinic woriu au entirely new neiu
of operations. It will also be the means
of showing that this part of Oregon is
rich in mineral wealth and its mines,
worked on a proper basis, can be made
productive of ores sufficient to make t.h
investment of capital well secured. The
latest effort made to attract the atten
tion of foreign mine-investors to the wild
fields of Oregon is now bearing fruit, and
is fully attested by the work oi the Law
ler Gold Mines (limited), recently
formed English corporation, to operate
mining property in the old Santiam dis
trict. The proposition was presented to
the English investors by Mr. William B.
Lawler, on the former record of the
properties and the voluminous report of
Mr. W. H. Smith, a mining expert, for
many years superintendent of the
Belcher mine of Oomstock fame, and
later felling a similar position with the
Bullian-Beck Company, of Tintie district,
Utah. The report met with favor. Al
though at the time London in common
with other places was suffering on ac
count of the financial depression exist
ing in 1894, the showing made by Mr.
Lawler waa so favorable tfiat he found
London people ready to investigate gold
mine investments of merit, and en
countered little difficulty in eecuriag the
capital needed for developing and mak
ing the mines productive. A 40-stamp
mul will be erected, and in ODeration be

The new mining camp of Quarts ville.in
the Santiam district, lies in a basin on
the west slope of the Cascade mountains,
20 miles southwest of Mount Jefferson.in
the northeast corner of Linn county.
The nearest railroad approach is Gates
station, on the Oregon Central & East
ern railroad, 40 miles from Albany. From
this point the old wagon road has been
reconstructed .andja mountain of 20 miles
brings one to Quartxville, which lies at
an elevation of 2S35 feet above the sea
level. The trip is best made on horse
back, and as a scenic route it has few
The future success ot the Santiam dis
trict depends entirely upon the extensive
prospecting work now in progress under
tne direction oi tne r.ngiish company, and
he outlook is most satisfactory. This
company now has about 60 men at work,
and will have more during the coming
winter and spring. It is well to say here
that the company is not in need of more
help. It will be folly for any one to go
there in the hope of finding e iiplovmenu
Such demand as exists for labor is fully
met by the employment of men already
promised a chance, or by miners known
to be competent. They can be sent for
Tne superintendent of the minine
work is "Hank" Smith, well known on
the Comstock,and one of the best miners
in the country. It was he who first in
spected the properties now being worked,
ana nis report was so convincing that the
English inventors readily embarked in
the new enterprise. When asked last
week, at the mine, what his opinion
was regaiding the property, he
frankly said : "If 1 did not think it a
good proposition, I would not stay here
a minute. When once opened, a-e will
have a world of fine ore that can be easily
worked. Thv assays show an averase
value of $25 per ton, which is a fair av
The greatest amount of work is now
being done on the Red Bull claim. Tun
nel o. I is now 130 feet (September 7),
and the face is broken no with iron-
tained rock, with favorable indications.
The ore vein will be cut at a distance of
50 feet further. This tunnel will be used
to receive all the ore from the upper
workings, through shaft connectioDsnd
it will be delivered direct to the mill.
"Tunnel o. 2 is 175 feet above No. 1.
and is in 231 feet. It passes through an
ore vein 40 feet wide, all good milling
ore. The face now is in hard, barren
matter, bat the vein will be found fur
ther on which we are now running for.
A lateral drift, runnirg southeast from
this tunnel along the vein, is in 36 feet
and shows remarkably well. The width
of the vein is not known, but, after run
ning 30 feet more, a crosscut will be
driven, and then the extent of the ore
body will be ascertained
"Tunnel No. 3 is 274 feet above No. 2,
and extends 313 feetll in ore, tbe width
of which cannot be determined until
cross drifts are run. This tunnel is con
nected by a shaft, sunk from tbe surface
167 feet above, and this also is on good
ore its entire distance. The drift is still
going ahead, gaining in depth as it goes
into the hill along the course of tbe ore
A series of tramways and trestle work,
extensive in character, are being built
in order to expedite the carrying of ore
to the mill, and, when in operation, the
delivery of ore from the various tunnels
will be in great part automatic.
Mr. William B. Lawler is tbe resident
director and general manager for tbe
company, and takes an active interest in
the development of the property. Mr.
H. G. Maud, recently from Colorado, a
man of fine attainments and a practical
knowledge of mining affairs, is secretary
at the works, and has general supervis
ion oi outside worx aunng tne construc
tion of the several buildings in course of
erection, and is assisted by Mr. Chas.
W. Moore, as clerk. There are no stores
nor saloons in the camp, and will not be
this winter. The company provides
board for all its employes, serving good
food and plenty of it.
it is likely that next season, U tne ex
pectations of the district are but halt
realised, there will be stores and prob
ably saloons, as these are features of a
mining camp that quickly follow in the
track of successful operations,

The rrain cron is entirely out of the
reach of damage from tbe rain, bnt
damage bas resulted to the bops. I'nder
tbe most favorable climatic circum
stances some bops yards would not have
oeen picaeu, due to inability to secure
cash lor the payment of pickers; second,
doe to tha expense of pickine and low
price of hops; third, the presence of lice
in the yards and consentient rxor aualitv
of the hnrwi. These draaWkn. in a
limited degree, where the enure bop area
is considered, have) been materially in
creased by the unfavorable weather con
ditions; hence tbe cause of the express
ion, aamage nas been done by the nuns.
The damage is not so much in the direct
as in the indirect war. The rains have
delayed, discouraged and prevented the
pickers from wot king. The direct dam
age to tbe hops must ret be done. If
the wea'her should become more favor
able, wbicb appears to be probable from
the middle of the present week, ami if
with tbe more favorable weather there
should be a cool, dry wind, there will lie
utile direct damage to the hops, tor they
will then dry out before the mould can
materially affect them.
Tbe rains have injured the prune crop
to a slight extent by causing the prune
to break open. This damage is not of
material extent, but that some loss will
be caused thereby is notnneetinntHl.
The shipment of peaches, apples, pear
and prunes by the car and train l.md
continues. The teason has been verv
favorable to fruit in eeneral. and as a
result much activity now prevails in
shipping and drying.

"That taste funny," he remarked to

this was his statement, according to tbe

when Mr. Peet walked in. I stood in
tbe reat end of tbe back room and there
was no one else present but Mr. Graham

back door, and at once told Mr. Giaham
tbat he was suffering with dysentery and
wanted a glass of brandy. Mr. Graham
asked bim if be wanted Jamaica ginger

than two minutes had elapsed since I

and said for me to hurry to tbe store
that Peet had swallowed a terrible dose
of aconite." How much did be get'
asked and Graham replied that he had
swallowed a whole ounce of it, "but I
didn't get so much,' he added. As he
ran down the street Graham began to
gag and attempted to vomit about the
time we passed the bank corner. Reach
ing tbe store Peet waa found standing at
the water bucket in tbe back room. He
was gagging and retching and shortly af

could give him. We were soon followed
into the store by Richard Graham, who
