The Coyote creek gravel-claims,
located partly in Jackson county, and
owned by H. Kelly & Co., have been
bargained for by a Portland company
at a cost of $30 000.
The Risinp- Star Companys claims
are situated on Wolf creek, about five
miles from Brimstone. The water
ditch, which is in coarse of construc
tion, will be eight or ten miles in
length. Their mine is known to- be
No definite action has yet been
taken by our base ball players in re
gard to the challenge sent them by the
club at Fort Klamath The chabces
are that it will not be accepted" as some
of the players object to travelling that
distance for the game.'-
Preparations are being made at the
mines of Bybee, Hawkett & Co. for
the commencement of work on their
new ditch. U.J.Howard went-down
last Monday to make the survey, af
ter which the d:ggiog of the ditch
will begin. It will be about three
miles in length and the water will be
taken from Limpy creek.
Piping continues at the mines owe
ed by Chinaman Lin, on Applegate,
and from present appearances they
can work for some time yet, and their
supply ot water may lest until the
Winter rains begin. They generally
clean up once a month at these mines,
and they have realized upwards of
$100 per day daring the season.
At the Sterling mines piping has
been suspended for the season and they
are now engaged in making a clean-up.
They have washed an immense amonnt
of gravel since commencing work, and
their returns, ol course, will be corres
pondingly large. It will take another
week for them to finish cleaning up.-
The Grave Creek Ditch, and Mining
Company, whose works aro in Jose
phine county, are prosecuting work
on their ditch, twelve hands now be
ing employed. This ditch is to be
twentyone miles in length, and will
convey water from Grave creek on the
rich gravel .bed's at Brimstone galoh,
abont four mites west of the stage
road. This is a stnpendous enterprise,
and when completed will doubtless
yield rich returns, to the projectors.
Another delay ot a few days occur
red at Klippel Hanna & Cos. mines last
week, caused by the breaking of the
ditoh flam?, but repairs have again
been made and piping goes steadily
on. They have everything in first
class working order now and will con
tinue work as long as the water last-.
A small clean np was made several
days ago, whioh proved more than
satisfactory to the owners of the mines,
and they now have no doubts as to the
paying qualities oi the ground worked.
John Cimborsky returned from
Beaver creek last Sunday, where be
has been engaged for some time past
in digging' a tunnel for the Elkhorn
mining company. The tunnel is now
in about a hundred feet, but while at
work one day last week, an immense
volume of water commenced coming
down from overhead at a point be
tween where Mr. Cimborsky was at
work and the opening of the tunnel,
placing htm in rather a perilous posi
tion. He succeeded in getting out
safely, however, but work will 'be
suspended for a time.
Articles incorporating the Apple
gate Grand Mining Company, cays the
Independent, has been filed with the
county clerk ot Donglas county. The
capital stock of the corporation is put
at 8500,000 all ot whioh has been sub
scribed. The gravel beds proposed to
be mined are located on Big Applet
gateoreek, Jackson connty, opposite
the Sterling and other mining claims,
and prospect richly in gold, There is
plenty ot witer to run three or four gi
ants the year around, and to work the
claim a ditch will be brought in from
Main Applegate. A surveyor will
start next week from that city to mark
the tine of the ditch, and work will be
commenced at an early day. Judge
Willis, Mr. Sol Abraham and another
gentleman are the directors of the new
corporation, and it ia our earnest hope
they may strike a ''big bonanza."
