The bridge wliich was to be
built across Willow Creek at
tile northern boundary of towt.
Will be very much needed when
the high waters of the raih
eeason come, inp on ace was
to be built bv contract, hy Ed
fiaroin, and the Juraber Una
already been placed upon the
ground, but because Harbin
failed to build the bridge with
in specified tirne, his contract
lias been declared forfeited. It
is hoped, however, that, this will
not occasion any ertat deiay in
tlie construction of the bridge.
The ppunty commissioners "haw
voted-tkis improvement, and it
will PPt be a great yhile until
he nimerons settlers who live
jipon the ig plains and .adja
cent territory will require the
. pridge in order to get their Trad
jng point with comfort and safe
ty. Harbip wag delayed in
building the bridge because he
ias had so muck pther wotk ol
a similar kind to do in other
portions of the coynty, and his
failure to get around to it should
iot deprive tlie people of thib
"end of the county of a very
nuck needed improvement.

Work May Start at Kin Mine
- Jt is rumored here that the Oregon
ICing mine near Ash wood will be opened
up again within the next few weeks. The
King was shut down about a year ago,
since which time it has been flooded with
water. Several months ago it was pump
ed out in order that an inspection might
be made by experts for the Geiser-Hen-drix
people of Baker County, and it was
reported the mine was about to be sold.
After the workings were inspected, how
' ever, the mine was allowed to fill again,
and the sale was reported to he off. Re
-cently the arrival of several former em
ployes "of the company at ABhwood has
revived the story of a sale of the" mine,
and it is now stated that Uie inine will be
operated in a short time.
The King mine is the best known min
ity property in Crook county, and k is
said to be owe ol the biggest mining prop-
ertiae in the state. J t has beeu .developed
fa a depth of 00 feet, with drifts at each
