Cracker Creek parent ledge, along
which lie In a string such bonanzas
as the Golconda, Columbia, North

It was on the 200-foot lovel of the
Golconda that a $l,000-per-ton shoot
was found in 1899 which electrified
the camp and news of which spread
all over the mining world. It is be
lieved from what information is at
hand, that the strike yesterday on
the 200-foot level Is simply a con
tinuance of that shoot. It is be
lieved that the old shoot was ex
hausted above the 200-foot level by
the English regime, but that it was
not properly exploited below the
200-foot level. There is reason to
believe, If this hypothesis Is correct,
matlon of a $3,000,000 merger cor
poration. In 18D9 the Concord stock
was worth 10 cents per share, or a
total value for the mine of $100,000.
In 1902 its consolidation with the
Red Boy was affected on a basis of
$750,000 as the value of the Concord.
Tho above article Is from the
Baker City Herald, which places
little too high a valuation on the
stock, although the outlook would
justify a higher valuation than at
what the stock was offered for sale
up to this time. The stock can now
be purchased for 15 cents a share,
from James A Howard, secretary of
the company, Pendleton, Oregon.
