JACKSON VILLF. I
Saturday, ArousT 1, 1885.
it's business out-look
It has come to be almost the con
stant business of some of the less
favored towns of this section which
aspire to county seats and commercial
importance to represent that Jackson
rills and it's business as a commercial
center are declining.
In ordir to disabuse the minds of
such as have been misled by these
statements, which, thus far hare not
been noticed by our press or people,
and leave the public to judge for them
selves we will submit, in this article,
a candid and unvarnished statement
of our leading business interests and
our surroundings and show that the
prejudices thus Bought to be created
against us havv had but one purpose
and that purpose has been to build up,
by endeavoring to kick down and ack
nowledge superior. Those who have
been engaged in this small and dis
reputable business hare yet to learn
. that cities are neither built nor de
serted through petty prejudices; tut
built to facilitate trade and commerce
and deserted when they do not answer
these purposes. It will be shown that
at no time in the history of our town
have it's prospects been brighter than
at the present, Jacksonville was built
up by the discovery of gold on Jack
son creek in 1851-2. From that time
'til this it has been the acknowledged
center of business for the whole of
Southern Oregon; and we shall show
by its most favorable and happy sur
roundings that it is destined to remain
Mich, and to grow in influence and
importance in proportion as its na
tural resources and advantages exceed
and excel any other town or section.
It should not be forgotten that Jack
sonville is situated within six miles
of the center of the largest and richest
grain growing ' body of land in the
county; and by far the larger body of
this land lies between Jacksonville and
the center, so that the steam flouring
'ill located here, and the touly one in
the country, can be reached by an easy
haul of not over fire of six miles.
The steam mill at this place is there-
'fore the nearest raillmg point for the
wfiofe of (niB'fargpBMMWMLstcn-TS'
"7 conceded to lie the fiatwt, us it is the
largest, in the valley. This showing
ia certainty a good one and better
still because it is true, and because it
places us within as easy reach of any
and all agricultural advantages as
eould be enjoyed by any other place,
ven with like milling facilities, ex
eept the center of this district
which has at this time no mill
inc privileges. Jacksonville has an
xhaustless mine of wealth alone in
her surrounding foot hills, which, in.
time, and a very short time, will be
one of the greatest sources of revenue
in the valley. It has been been shown
by actual test that our rich and fertile
hills, extendinginto the valley areeBpec
ially adapted, in this locality, to the
successful culture of the various fruits:
while grapes grown upon these lands
produce in abundance and of the best
quality, ilie manufacture or wine
from grapes grown in the immediate
vicinity of Jacksonville is destined, in
the near future to be one of the mate
rial and most profitable industries of
the country. The completion of the
railroad through the 'valley has ren
dered it necessary to grow and manu
facture something that will bear
shipping. The constant drain oc
casioned by imports will compel a
change in farming and a change from
heavier to lighter and more valuable
freights. This drain must be met and
comptinsalea Ior by sucn roaucio n
-.-aufactures as can be shipped in
b call bulk and at a pro6t. Fruit and
wine, such as can be manufaetured
here, can be exported, at a good profit,
and from no point more largely or ex
peditiously than from this. In the
matter of wine, the most profitab'e of
ull the manufactures for shipping, and
which will shortly be made a apecialty
here, no poiut will pretend that it can
compete with Jacksonville, for the rea
son that the soil here produces a grape
far superior to any grown in the
Regarding our mineral resources,
which, as will be bhown are bv no
means small, we are so situated as to
have almost a complete monopoly of
the whole of the gofd product in
Southern Oregon. Not less than onu
hundred thousand dollars in dust flows
into the hands of our merchants and
business men annually from this source
, ilone. This is the largest source of
actual money revenue in the county
and more than doubly exceeds the net
profits of all the manufactures in this
district. It is not unreasonable to say,
with the preparations that are making
for an actual tet ol the quartz leads
lying about Jacksonville and known
to contain gold that onr yet undevelop
ed mineral resources will prove to be
of more" lastiog benefit to the town
and country than the placers have
been. It is well known that there are
10 or 15 gold bearing leJges within 5
or 6 miles of Jacksonville and should
they prove to contain gold in paying
quantities, as it is belived they will,
the future of Jacksonville is fixed be
yond any question. So firmly of the
opinion are our people that these
ledges will pay, they have sent for a
test mill called the "Dyer Cannon Ball
Quarts Mill" j.atented in 1882 and
which is said to be one of the best
ever invented. It is expected the
mill will be in operation in a short
time when the fact will be demonstrat
ed whether these ledges will pay or no.
But whether they pay or not the fact
cannot be disputed that the gold dust
annually coming into the hands of our
business men notwithstanding the
general business depression, will serve
to explain, in a great, measure their
present financial ease and indepen
dence as compared with the threaten
ing stringency that seems to exist else
where in the county. "We hope none
of our neighbors will take these facts
to heart but accept them gracefully as
any effort to rub them out will only
develop the proof.
President Cleveland's Proc
lamation. Immediately upon the announce
ment of the death of General Grant,
President Cleveland issued the fol
lowing address in memorj of the great
hero, warrior and statesman:
"The President of the United States
has just received the sad tidings of the
death of that illustrious citizen and
ex-President of the United States
General Ulysses S. Grant, at Mt. Mc
Gregor in the State of New York, to
which place he had lately been re
moved in endeavors to prolong his life.
In making this announcement to the
people of the United States, the Presi
dent is impressed with the magnitude
of the public loss of a great military
leader, who was in the hour of victory
magnanimous, amid disaster serene and
self sustained; who, in every station,
whether as a soldier or Chief-Magistrate,
twice called to power by his fellow-country
men, trod unswervingly
the pathway of duty, undeterred by
doubt, single-minded, and straight
fern ard. The entire country has wit
nessed with dvep emotion his prolong
ed and patient struggle with the pain
ful disease, and has watched by his
couch of suffering with tearful
sympathy. The destined end has
corre at last, and lifiTspiritTTas relUr;
ed to the Creator who sent it forth.
The great heart of the nation that fol
lowed him when alive, with love and
pride, bows now in sorrow above him
dead, tenderly mindful of his virtues,
of his great patriotic service, and of
the Moss occasioned by his death. In
testimony of the respect to the mem
ory of General Grant, it is ordered that
the Executive Mansion and the several
departments in Washington, be draped
in mourning for a period of thirty
days, and that all public business shall,
on the day of the funeral, be suspen
ded, and the Secretaries of War and
of the Navy will cause orders to be
issued for appropriate military and
naval honors to be rendered on that
In witness whereof, I hereunto have
set my hand and caused the seal of
the United States to be affixed.
Done in the city of Washington,
this twenty-third day of July A. -D.,
one thousand eight hundred and eigh
ty five, and independence of the Uni
ted States one hundred and tenth."
(Signed) Grover Cleveland.
