Vanc6uver, ' Wash., March 17. -The
.'business men of Vancouver have by
resolution passed by . the Business Men's
Protective association declared they are
, opposed to a political or other fight
agalnot the railroad.
T In 1902 the association not only passed
a resolution opposing a railway commis
sion being established in Washington,
but sent delegates' to Olympta to fight
, against the proposed enactment This
last move by the merchants will no
doubt make a considerable difference in
the political fight between the McBrlde
and railway, factions of the Republican

railroad spirit is not so prominent in
Clarke county as the McBrlde forces
believed. The resolution above referred
' to states emphatically that the associa
tion and merchants signing the same are
opposed to any fight against the rail
road. It Is believed by them that the
town and county have everything to lose
-and nothing to galn'by antagonizing the

rather than oppose them-. These sen

(Journal Bpectal Service.)
Salem, March 17. Speculation Is still
rife as to the outcome of the loss of
the original documents In, many Im
portant . ordinances passed in this city.
There are. two opinions which today are
being discussed one that new ordin
ances will have to be 'enacted, and the
other that under a section of the code.
No. 766, providing that acts may be
proved by a copy of ' an -authoritative
publication, the originals will not be
necessary.
It Is said that a printed volume of all
ordinances existent up to the year 1891
is in existence, and waa duly authorized.
The most serious feature of the case,
as affecting present matters. Is con
nected with the loss of the gambling or
dinance. It was rumored that the re
cent action of the city marshal. In clos
ing the games In the city, and In clos
ing the saloons on Sundays, would be
Ignored hereafter and that the old con
ditions would soon prevail.
However, thus far there is no sign
that the gambling element will under
take to reopen at oqce, though It Is
reported that these Interests will now
only await the work of attorneys en
gaged by the gamblers to examine into
the status of the case, when, If the
conditions prove as the gamesters be
lieve them to be, gambling In all forms
will be resumed.
The city authorities have very little
to say in the matter, as they are as yet
uncertain what their rights in the prem
ises are. Some of the best legal talent
in the city, on a hasty examination of
the case, have not given the official
very; much encouragement.
The question apparently hinges solely
on the value of the published book re
ferred to. Some attorneys hold that It
will prove worthless when brought to
a test, although it was compiled by the
then city attorney. The volume referred
to contains the gambling ordinance.
. Should the book record prove Inade
quate, gambling prosecutions can be car
ried on under the state law, hence those
who are most active In the closing of
gaming contend that the ordinances lost
are not absolutely necessary to the cru
sade. rreaaff Biff State Talr.
The state board of agriculture. In a'
special session in this city, received the
formal retirement of Presment Chandler
from membership and Hon. W. H. Down
ing, of Shaw, the Marlon county mem
ber of the board, was elected to succeed
him as president This was the only
change made In tire board, except that
Mr. W. F. Matlock of Pendleton took
the oath of office and assumed his seat
as a member of the board.
Later the members of the board went
to 'the fair grounds and made an In
spection of the bunulngs, and considered
the matter of needed Improvements in
the several structures and the different
departments. The outlook for the sue
cess of this year's fair, the members
etated. was far better than had been
anticipated, and the indications are that
the fair will be the best In the history
of trie state. Already great Interest is
manifested for this year's display, and
the exhibits from various parts of the
state promise to be more extensive and
varied than even those of last year.
Many inquiries are already at hand

Idlrwtnde Dismissed. -
The case against Jacob Idlewinde.
who was charged with assault and bat
tery by Clarence Ball Bell, was yester
day afternoon dismissed by the prosecut
ing attorney after he had consulted with
the witnesses summoned for the state.
It seems that the defendant had forbid
den the prosecuting witness coming to
the Idlewinde home to visit his daugh
ter, ana when Jie found the boy there
a few evenings ago, he ordered the un
welcome visitor off the premises, and
proceeded to enforce his commands by
using a chair upon the head of the luck
less swain. This was the assault com
plained of. and as it appeared to the
prosecuting officer that Idlewinde was
not altogether wrong in trying to expel
the unwelcome youth from the house. It
was thought best to drop the case.
Reuben Lee, an aged farmer, last
evening began suit against Jasper
Denny for the recovery of $161.00 and

Considerable mining activity is ex
pected In Canyonville this spring. Prof.
J. B. Ford is preparing to 'ship to a
smelter about 6,000 pounds of ore from
his tellurlde deposit on Canyon creek.
Definite announcements are- also ex
pected as to the operation of the Clark
and Rainbow mines - above Perdue.
Although the snow has fallen to a
greater depth In the Bohemia mining
district this winter than la usual, yet a
great amount of development and pre
paratory work for the coming season
has been accomplished, says the Cottage
Grove Nugget The result of persistent
and continuous work, as determined
upon by many in the district Instead
Of coming to the valley and await the
spring, will no doubt show great (changes

Mr. J. B. Eggen, superintendent of the
Sunrise Mining company's property, sit

taken from a ledge 10 feet In width and
some to feet in length. It Is a fine

says it will run about $100 in gold per
ton. Tne tunnel rrorn .which this ore
was taken has been driven over 200 feet
and ha. passed .. through . the oxidised
into the base ore. Work has been in
progress all winter on this group and
the results are highly satisfactory.
A rich strike was made in the High

Record. The ledge contains four feet
of aolld ore and about two feet of de

about, eight miles from Haines, In the
famous Rock creek mining district and
promises to be one of the leading mines
in this section. As soon as the weather
will' permit a large force of men will
go to work, and the manager will con
tinue to make very extensive devel
opment of this property. The other
mines n this district are reported to be
making a good showing, and the com
ing season promises to bring about a
great deal of development work, and
place the Rock creek mines among the
leading properties of Eastern Oregon.
Arrangements have been made for
financing the Platts group, located on the
North Pole divide, reports H T. Hen

mencing on the Log Cabin claim, a tun
nel will be driven on the vein for a dis
tance Of approximately 1,800 feet where
the management ssys a depth on the
vein of 1.200 feec will be had. This tun
nel Is already being driven by hand
work, and when the development plant
contemplated hat been Installed much
greater progress will be .possible. The
Platts group consists of six quarts
claims and two placers. It commences
at the summit of the North Pole divide
and extends down Into the Rock creek
basin, giving a most remarkable loca
tion for prosecution of economical devel
opment, as the lode strikes down the
mountain side. The quarts claims' are
the Kersarge, Log Cabin. Victor, Ida

big wagon loaded full of goods drawn
by four horses can drive through It
without touching sldea or top. As work
progresses on th Emma it la expected
that this season will see substantial If
not remarkable results.
Because of the great snows! ids that
took place on that property, the Bals-ley-Elkhorn
mine la said to be filling
with water. It appears that the track of
the slide was across the pipe lino be
tween the compressor plant and the mine
arid KnUl. The air pipe bad been laid
after winter set In, and was all on the
top of the ground, so that the mass of
snow and earth swept It down Into the
canyon for the width of the avalanche.
Late reports from the mine indicated
that it was fining with water, the crew
having been driven from the lower lev
els. Whether the management will b
able to get the pip line repaired In time
to put pumps at work again before
the mine entirely refills Is not known.
In the canyon where the slide struck It
la said that the anow Is between zoo ana
100 feet deep. At first those viewing It
said that It waa not more than fiO feet
but men who have passed over it state
without reserve that there is more than
200 feet of snow and lea stacked In the
canyon. With such enormous depth, and
considering the packed condition of the
mass, which is mingled with rock and
earth, there Is- little likelihood of It
melting this year. , ,
The Baker City Herald says 1100 ora ,

Mount Rastus camp. Last year phono

strikes were made. A thousand men

winter's sleep. Building Is progressing
almost feverishly. Prospectors and min

the stampede that la bound to 'result
this year. "I expect to sea 6,000 men in
Mt Rastus this year," said Mr. Murray.
