Not the Bohemia of which W. D.
Howells writes in his "Coast of Bohe
mia," nor yet the native country of the
mongrel class known as Bohemians, who
are the mainstay of the iron and coal
barons of the East, but a rugged, rock-
clad and mountainous district, which
ill undoubtedly prove to le the future
store of wealth for the great state of
Geographically described, the Bohe
mia mining district lies in the Cascade
itngo of mountains, in the eastern part
Lane and Douglas counties, the
ounty line dividing the district almost
To reach the district the most conven
ient route at present is via Cottage
Grove, but before another year rolls by
there will undoubtedly be a more direct
route from Oakland. Over the Cottage
rove route the distance to the Cham
pion mine, theIeading mining property
of the district, is about 40 miles, of
which 30 may be made by wagon and
the balance by an excellent trail, which
as put through on a wagon-road grade
by Millard and Spurre of the Champion
mine. This road and trail go up what
is known as Rowe river, a branch of the
coast fork of the Willamette river. It
is a current saying that Rowe river takes
its name from the frequent rows which
occur among the inhabitants along its
The Oakland route goes in by way of
Elk Meadows, a small plateau 25 miles
east of Oakland. A good wagon road
goes within four miles of the meadows,
after which the traveler must take'to the
trail for 25 miles. However, it is prob
able that the Douglas county court
will appropriate a sufficient sum to open
up a wagon road to the heart of the dis
trict. Of the resources of the district it may
In; said that there are distinctively gold
mining, the formation of the surface of
the ground making it unfit for any other
use. It is a succession of deep canyons
and precipitous ridges, with here and
there a sharp peak rearing its rocky
point above the clouds at an elevation of
from S.000 to 9,000 feet, the whole com
position seamed with quartz ledges,
bearing a good percentage of that glit
tering Midas-metal which men seek at
the risk of their lives.
In the phraseology of the miner, it is
what is known as a "base camp"; i. e.,
the gold is so closely amalgamated with
other mineral that it cannot be separ
ated without the use of chemicals.
However, enough "free milling', ore
hows up to pay good dividends, besides
piling up concentrates. The other min
erals showing, having a commercial
value, are iron, lead, silver and copper,
with traces of some others not of enough
consequence to enumerate.
The ore found in these mines runs as
high in some rare instances as $500 per
ton, but the average milling value is
from $10 to $25 in free milling. When
it is considered that almost all leads
how quite thick, from two to sixteen
feet, the practical miner will see .that it
is a profitable showing.
The development of the country has
been slow, owing principallv to the
crookedness in the management of the
Annie mine, the oldest mining property
in the district Twice has the property
been in litigation, and has given Bohe
mia a black eye on both occasions
This is now settled, however, by the
sale, by the receiver, to a Chicago syn
dicate which will undoubtedly open up
the mine and operate it to its full capac
ity. This mine has a 5-stamp mill of
old style, which was formerly used on
the Knott mine, but was removed to the
nnie mine years ago. So far this has
made the best showing in free milling
ore. It is located on the southern slope
of Grouse mountain, a little to the east
of the center of the district.
By far the most important mining
property is the Champion, operated by
Millard it Spurree, who came from
Michigan some time ago and have spent
a large sum in developing tbe property
A tunnel nearly 300 feet in length has
leen run in the Champion property, and
some shorter cuts driven on the other
claims owned bv tiiis firm, of which
they have ten. They have put iu a ten
stamp mill of improved pattern, includ
ing a wire-cabled tramway a half mil
in lemitli. running from the dump at
the mouth of the tunnel, where they
have enough ore to keep the mill run
ning the most of the winter. This mill
will be in operation by the first of next
week. The leads here allow enough
free milling ore to iiy a good profit, but
will undoubtedlv run to base at a great
t Bohemia City, two miles west
the Champion, the Bohemia Mining it
Milling Co. have a five stamp mill which
has been in operation two years. Thi
was formerally controlled by Mr.Musick
who died recently in Salem. The mill
has paid for itself, paid operating ex
peuses, and for tbe development of tb
mine, besides a small dividend. J. W
Cook is president of the company, the
principal stockholder and is manager of
the mill. Ho has had a ton of ore and
a ton of concentrates shipped to 'Frisco,
where a thorough assay will be made.
If the returns warrant, a plant will be
put in for working base ore, "and possi
bly u largo mill. This company has
eight claims, all of which show rich ore,

Down in the western part of the dis
trict the Star mine has a five-stamp
mill, and Whipple it Hunt are putting
in a two-stamp.
Nearly everyone who has 11 location is
developing it, but an immense territory
lies unprospected, and such is the for
mation of the eountiy that new ledges

From present prospects, next season
will witness a boom in Bohemia such as
