source that a national bank will

Grant county has long been in
need of. and there is now no
doubt of it becoming a reality'.
Orant countv is beconr'ng the
rendezvous of renegades from all j
parts of the country" where they
have been in the habit of punish
ing crime. It looks almost as
though we would be compelled to
organize a vigilance committee

uncertain results of the so-called
courts of justice.

One of the crying needs of
Grant county is capital to assist
in developing her quartz mining
interests. At this ollice can be
seen samples of ore mostly
croppings which will compare
favorably with surface rock from
any of the 1.000,000 mines on
the coast, but capital is not at
hand to develop them. The bus
iness men of Canyon City or the
vicinity in which the mines ex
ist, could well afford to pay $5
or even a larger sum per month,
to keep a man at work on these
prospects, for if a fortune is
struck tlie benefit does not fall
on the owner alone. We all
shall reap thc benefit, for would
not the money be spent here?
