'Believe ' the jfenthtfsiasts of Baker county and you . Will
find no" room left f or doutft that1; that tnetallic section of east-,
crn Oregon is alput to have a g:old-copper rush. The Morning
Democrat of Baker relates the discovery of a lede over IOC
feet wide which yields $54 to the jton of copperT, gold and silver.
Baker, ays . the Democrat, is destined to be the "Denver of
theFar Vest,, and - ,f U 'yt-. f
';ppW'deytments"on the Baker county copper belt
are "proving beyond any 'speculation that;. here exists one oi
the greatest' copper .deposits in the world.? From the grass
.roots o a depth. of several hundred feet there is a continuous
showing of high grade copper &n gold and silver contents the
likVof..1vhich is found nowhere else and in inexhaustible quan
tity, for ' the.length aiid breadth W the zone is almost beyond
: The above is from the Portland Journal. A gold-copper
rush has been rumored for. Baker countyand for Idaho, for
ome'!.time- ;, - j-- .
And it is no doubt coming, j .
' There is also a . goId-copperrsilver rush about due for
Marion county. ; ; j-';,' "!
- Ore riclier in gold; copper and silver than $54 a ton has
been found in the minesj on the Little North Fork of the
Santiam river aiindi near the niouth of Gold Creek, and such
ores exist there in great; quantities; literally mountains of
rich ores; underlying the summit hills of the Cascades,
v The average of the ore there has 4.28 per cent copper, and
in copper,"" gold and silver, -at. the present prices the average
values run better' than $ 15 a toit . ., .-i
: And there are cross cuts of this ore 54 feet wideand it
has been traced on the surface 9000 feet ? and there is already
2000 "feet of underground workings
So there is no question about the vast extent of these
larjon county ore bodies, running through into Linn and

When a Shard rock miner turns
moonshiner, he's" going to have
a pretty elaborate layout for. his
A pair of copper miners, tired
of layoffs and lower wages when
the price of. copper w got' down
around 12 cents, a pound, decided
to get more out of a sheet of cop
per, properly shaped, in a month
than they could get out of mining
it in a year.
Sheriff wi' T. "Skeets? Witt of
Greenlee county had been pretty
hard on the ' white male makers,
however, Nq ordinary still would
escape his eagle eye for a week.
So there was established down
on the bank of. the Gila river
about twenty miles below Clifton
in the most mountainous county
In Arizona, probably tbe most el
aborate moonshine 'outfit ever
constructed, one that did the
miner's previous occupation
First, they sank a shaft for 32
feet, 'down from a bluff, to a-.few
feet .above the river level j fifty
feet from its shore. Next tbey led
a tunnel out for twenty feet on
the 22 foot, level, big enough to
hold thirty men. ,-; -
Here tbey vet up their distilling
apparatus. The still held 80 gal
lons at one run. The cooling coil
was in. a barrel. A cistern, pump
brought water from the "river,
which seeped through into a pit
on the. 30-foot levels and it was
emptied - by ... a pipe - running
doned-ranch house nearby, r where
he accosted Ben Black; :
' "I've comft tor' that 'i " still.
Ben.-Want-ta' take mo over to It,
or hav I got. to get out'and hunt!

I've - got " some dynamite , and 1

Skeets tan shame &. bloodhound,
on tracking a man through. Aft
zona terain, where the i layman
would' see no indication whatever
of anyone's passing, so Ben gave
u P. ; ' . '
In the tanne! they found 40
gallons of moonshine, just run off,
and confiscated it. , .
"You'll, leave tbe boys their
tunnel, won't yon 1 sheriff" asked
black who had seen the two mint
er-moonshiners flee bver the
mountains pust as Skeet's'Stude

So he set fifty pounds of dy
namite at the s bottom ': of the
main shaft, carefully replaced! the
cover; aTid' touched : It off . ' Frag
ments of the mash' barrels sailed
half a mile out of the shaft as
though out of a gun, and the
tunnel is now a minature canyon.

The mouth of the tunnel , was
finished with cement, with a
board, trap door covered iwth soil
and scrub mesquite. Men could

occurs to this grand jury that . the
investment in this new institution
is an extravagant outlay on ' the
part of the state. Magnificent
buildings have been constructed
and are in the process of construc
tion. However, for the investment
so made by the state, facilities will
be available for the care of only
120 boys in that Institution,
whichc number is about one-half
of the whole number of boys npw

urge that the; proper authority
see to it that all of the boys com
mitted to the Oregon state train

place, either at the old institution
or at the new institution. th 'the
end that the expenses incident to
the conduct of the institution he

the expectation that the bodies of

Fire officials estimated the pro
perty damage at $200,000. '
The blast, which, came a little
more than an hour after the plant
opened, demolished one nnit of tbe
large plant in which 22 men were
working. Flom.es spread in hte
resinous premises and soon en
