Ag a guarantee of good faith tha ayn dlcate. baa deposited $25,000 in one of the local banking houses and will begin the immediate construction of the road as aoon as the people here subscribe the stipulated amount of capital stock. There la no doubt in the mind of any one who Is familiar with the conditions . that the road will be a paying proposi tion froia the very first The country through which this road will pass Is some of the most produc tive in eaatern Oregon. After travers ing Powder valley for a few miles from Baker City the road will go Into the hills, tapping lower Powder valley and copper and gold mines in the Sparta district. The road will afford an out let for the ores of tha rich copper mines that are now being developed In the rich mineral section east of Baker City. The road will then proceed eaat and will aecure a heavy tonnage from the hllla which in onvarnt with millions of feet of fine timber. It haa been lm-1 possible to place this timber upon the market because of the lack of transpor tation facilities, i The producta of Eagle valley will alao be placed upon tne market If thla road la built from Baker City. Thla valley is one of the most fertile and produc tive In Oregon. It la a veritable garden spot and produces fruits and vegetables in wonderful abundance. The surround ing hills are covered with cattle that could be fattened and shipped directly to the large markets. Bloa Mining District. Beyond Eagle valley is Pine valley, which la larger and equally as pro ductive aa Eagle valley. At the head of Pine valley in the Cornucopia moun tains are some of the richest mine in 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 ing of the new road there will be an era of development in the mines of east ern Oregon such as haa nsver been known before. Development work is now being done' in many of the mines In the Seven Devils country of Oregon in anticipation of the building of the road down Snake river. The' road which will run from j Baker City will pass through a richer mineral country than that reached by tne snake river road and will be the outlet for a much larger amount of ore.

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 on them at Oyster Bay thla summer. Whether the apeeches will be academic, crwhat might be oalled polltlcaX ia what a good many people with . Wall atreet oonnectlone would Ilka to know.

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 number, will be of the same etrlpe, I west oi tne Mississippi tnere win ia something like 1st delegates, every one of them a Roosevelt man. With this aggregation all the president will have to do is nress tne outton, ana tne con vention will do the rest. At this time it looks as If Taft waa aa good aa nom-1 mated. It la suspected that ona reason why the president la going to make theaa rive soeecnea is to nave, in soma zasn- lon, the way to this result The pro ceeding is a little nign nanaea, even for a Roosevelt, and needs a little soft ening. The Democrats In tha south are alive to what la going; on. and they intend to line uo this time behind a live candi date. It ia expected that when Presi dent Rooaeveit visits tne aoutn lieuten ant Governor Lewis Stuyveeant C hau ler of New York state will also be there.

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. ESTHER MITCHELL STILL B ASYLUM Woman Who Claimed to be Notor ious Holy Roller Proved to be Im poster. FAMILY FOOD.

SALESMEN WANTED IN ALL DEPARTMENTS BEN SELLING LEADING CLOTHIER SOTS) We bought two producing gold properties of SIX claims each and consolidated them into ON t DONT MISS THE, ELECTRIC COOKING DISPLAY 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.
