Golconda, at a cost of $150,000,
promises to revolutionize the entire
mining industry. It will be seen
at a glance that the Sumpter district
is to Oregon what Cripple Creek is
to Colorado. Placer mi:iing is also
extensively carried on. The cap
italist is more needful at present
than the merchant or laborer, in
order to fully develop the scores of
promising properties, build mills
and put thetu on a larger dividend
paying tiasis. A smelter proDosi-
ijtiou is receiving favorable consider-
jation with every prospect for its
establishment during the present
year of 1899. An average of 500,-
ojo pounds of concentrates and ore
are shipped to the smelters monthly.
Hon. Thos. II. Tongue arrived
from Washington Sunday noon.
In regard to Yaquina, he said to an
Oiegonian reporter: "Much de
pends on the report the board of
engineers make to the next con-
jgress. The act of 1896 authorized
j the secretary of war to let contracts
for the completion of these jetties,
placing the cost at $1,000,000, but
no appropriation was ever made to
meet the expense. The previous
secretary of war proceeded to adver
tise for bids, and the contract was
let to Christy, Lowe & Hay worth,
of Chicago, at $511,000. Before
this contract was signed, the chair
man of the river and harbor com
mittee requested the secretary of
war to wait until congress' had
acted on a bill repealing the act.
There is strong opposition to the
prosecution of the work, from
sources I have not been able to
discover, though I do not think it
comes from the transcontinental
railroads, as has been reported.
The impression that $1,000,000 had
actually been appropriated for Ya
quina bay is an erroneous one. All
