Beyond Eagle valley is Pine valley,
which la larger and equally as pro

of Pine valley in the Cornucopia moun

Oregon. Thousands of tons of ore are
now awaiting shipment to the smelters
to have the gold refined from the rock
with which It Is mixed. Many of the
rich mines of this section have 'not
been developed because of the lack , of
transportation facilities. With the com

era of development in the mines of east

in many of the mines In the Seven

Washington, . Sept.: t, There Is a
great deal of interest manifested here
among Republican politicians as to tha
character of speeches the president will
make on bis southern tour. He Is sched
uled to makg five talks, and It Is known
that ha put a great deal of hla tlma in

that the president seriously Intends to j
force his nomination on tha party.
There will be Sl delegates in tha next
Republican national convention, and IT
will be enough to nominate. The south
will furnish III of these delegates In
the shape of federal officeholders. The
delegates from tha terrltorlea, SI In

of them a Roosevelt man. With this
aggregation all the president will have

waa cold and calculating, and never
for a moment could, he get away from
the business that took him south.
Chanler . is a rood mixer. - He la aa
chivalrous aa a Bayard, and while he I
will keep hla eye open for anything- that
"la doing politically, he can be relied
upon to measure up to the requirements
demanded of a southern gentleman.
It is predicted here that when Gover
nor Chanler gets through - with tha
south he will have the - delegates of
every state that goes to - make up the
"Bona aoutn" witn mm.
The candidacy of Chanler haa given
the Democrats a waking up. It has
brousht all the flsrhtinr men in the nar-
ty to the front, and they now talk hope
fully of winning. - Of course the fact
that Chanler la a millionaire may . have
aomethlng to do with that. Politicians
are known to be much mora eager for
battle when they see the shadow of
the "long green" even In the distance.
Be this as it may. Chanler ia a, force in
the Democratlo party, and will continue
to grow rrom now on.

We Are Selling Stock in Producing Gold Mines pyp qqq
Not in prospects or "hopc-to-be's." But our mines are not producinr as they should. .We have owned
them but a tew months, and our predecessors worked with the pick, shovel and wheelbarrow. We must
get out of that old-fashioned, slothful rut. We have a mountain of rich ore, but the rock la worthless
to us unless we ret it out Then this rock is susceptible of treatment by the cyanide process cheaper
method by $8 to $12 per ton than by smelting.
WE MUST HAVE A CYANIDE PLANT, WE
MUST ENLARGE OUR STAMP MILL, AND
WE MUST BUILD AN AERIAL TRAMWAY
TO CONVEY OUR ORE TO THE STAMPS.
We are now selling shares of stock to raise money
to make these additions to our plant. When. this is
accomplished no more shares will be disposed of.
And in addition to our PRODUCING gold mines
WE HAVE ACQUIRED FOURTEEN "COPPER
CLAIMS. COVERING NEARLY THREE
MILES OF A COPPER LEDGE.
We . have consolidated these also with our gold
mines, and each share of stock covers both our gold
and copper holdings. These mines are located in
Siskiyou county, California,' just over the border
line of southern Oregon, and only 390 miles from
the city of Portland. The fare by rail is only $12.60.
and passengers leaving Portland at 7:45 p. m. will
reach their destination between 4 and 5 next after
noon WE BELIEVE OUR FIFTY-CENT SHARES
OF TODAY WILL SELL AT FIVE DOLLARS
- WITHIN A YEAR.
But within a few days our stock will be 75 cents
per share. It is worth more than that today. We
ought to sell at par now, but to quickly raise the
funds to make the improvements necessary to our
equipment we are willing to make the sacrifice. We
are willing that others should have a share in our
prosperity that the treasure we possess in northern
California should enrich and gladden others equally
with ourselves.
EVERY GREAT MINE IN AMERICA HAS
BEEN DEVELOPED BY A COMBINATION
OF INVESTORS.
In turn scores of these mines have made their
owners these small investors rich, large numbers,
of the millionaires of these days dating the begin
ning of their prosperity to the time they invested,
their meager savings in mining stocks.
GREAT WEALTH ACQUIRED FROM MINING
INVESTMENTS.
Here are 18 instances of the accumulation of mon
ster wealth through mining ventures. We could
name 18,000 similar instances and not exhaust the
list. The "millionaires of the mines" are found on
every hand. In fact, the gold mine, the silver mine '
and the copper mine is the short cut to opulence.
No man can ever acquire very much wealth on an
ordinary salary. We have shown in our advertise
ments that a man working at $10 per day, every
working day of the year, would earn less than $32,
000 in 10 years. ' t
