wagon road into the mines. It will
require about 12 miles of road to reach
the mines from the terminus of the
present wagon road. A trail has been
built over a considerable part of the
road which would be of material bene
fit when building was commenced. It
is pmtmiiie that the olllce of the com
pany will lie moved to Eugene if a
reasonalilo amount of aid la extended
by our citizens. The company intend
to put lu a now mill next summer and
work the mine to tho full extent of Its
resources. A large amount of supplies

work Is now being prosecuted and will
be continued during the winter. It is
probuhle that the recent storm has left
several feet of snow on the mountains,
but this will uot Interfere with work.
