O.VLY PAPER IN GRANT C0UNJ.Y.
Official Paper For Grant County.
Canyon City, Saturday Aug. 30, 1S70.
S. H. Shepiieud, Editor.
On last Saturday morning, armed
with an extra roll of the News and a
free piss, we mounted one of the stage
wagons of ihe Dalles and Baker City
Stage Line and started for Baker City.
Nothing strange or startling happened
while we were on the road so we natu
ray got. a little uneasy for fear we
would not meet with items enough to
make our trip interesting, but with
such a companion as Dr. Horsley for a
seat partner we came to the conclusion
that we would not go to sleep. At
Robinspnville wo left part of our load,
its they were intending t goto Mr.
Carpenter's to see the sick folks, Miss
JSew and Mr. Bauffman. At Granite
we found everything very quiet and
bat few people in town. We nskrd
the reason and were told that the Mon
umental Mine was only siven 'miles
away, and that as the company were
pushing everything pertaining to the
mine to their utmost capacity, it took
all of the surplus men to fill the de
mand. Nest morning we took our
seat with Sam. Ross, whotakes the
waybill that Aaron Farnsworth leaves
at Granite, and are soon driven to
Sumter, were a ton o'clock dinner
awaits us at the hotel of T. M. Britten,
and a good one it is. Aftei our meal
we proceed on our journey and at Deer
Gn-ek we change our team again.
This is a station that Mr. Tom. Brittn
has just built and is in the right place.
A few hour's drive and we are at Au
burn, but the town is not as it "used
to was." It is now :m old delapidated
burg, inhabited mostly by Chinese.
Arriving at Baker City at about five
o'clock we bid farewell to the stage.
"We stopped at our brother ' J. M.'s
houce and found our father in pretiy
good health for a man of his ag .1.
M. and his family wern also enjoying
pretty god health. Monday morning
found us well and ready for business.
During the day we managed to note
down the following
