ried Ten Stamps Running.
Colonel' J. H. Raley has returned
from Sumpter. where ho spent sever
al days Inspecting the Golconda mine
In which he, with other Pendleton
people, is heavily interested.
Speaking of the property after Kg
return, Mr. Raley said that the "mine
was looking as well or better t.'nan at
any time during its history. Every
drift, and level is showing ore and
the main workings have showings
which are constantly increasing.
The fabulous ore finds which made
the property famous under the regime
of the Englishes, have been many
times surpassed lately and the mine
now ranks as one of the best devel
oped, greatest showing and probably
one of the heaviest dividend payers
in the camp.
Ten stamps are running at the mill
and are handling good daily runs of
the fine ore of the mine. The other
ten will be put In commission before
long, but it is desired to have the
first 10 running perfectly and every
thing ready to go ahead without a
hitch before the remaining stamps
are set in operation.
While at the camp, the colonel, in
company with W. J. Scriber, of La
Grande, also a heavy stockholder,
visited some of the other properties,
and says they are all looking well.

is located on the reservation, about
four and one-half miles from Pendlo
ton, the flames springing up in the
grain at about 3 p. m., of Sunday, nnd
only being subdued aftor several
hours'-of hard work.
The blaze caught from sparks from
a combined thresher, which was be
ing used in the harvest field and be
fore being brought under control the
fire king had consumed about 15
acres of standing wheat and the cror
from some 15 acres which had been
harvested and sacked..
A large number of harvest hands
were in tho vicinity nnd did nil thoy
could to save tho grain, finally by
most strenuous efforts bringing the
flames under control. In order to do
this It was necessary to plough wide
furrows around tho Waxing grain and
thon fight to keep the flro from Jump

Tho entire crop of 30 ncres was to
tally destroyed, but was fully covered
by insurance. Tho harvester was
saved. This is tho first grain flro

The percentage of assets to liablll
ties Jn other words, the salvage on
the loss was 47.4 per cent this year
as againBt 49 per cent a year ago
and 45.7 per cent in 1900.
The decrease in failures for the six
