Alba, Or., Nov. 7. Camas Prairie
country is one of wonderful resources
remaining undeveloped. It lias many
resources, It is true, that are bringing
In rich "returns, but they are few com
pared with the undeveloped wealth of
the country.
Stockraiswg and dalrving are the
main industries at present, with the
lumber business coming to the front.
Lumbering, quarrying building
stone, and mining will probably be
r.dded to Eastern Oregon's great in
dustrial output in the course of only
a few years. There Is no question as
to the timber and building stone, and
prospects are good for both coal and
gold. Camas Prairie is surrounded
by a forest of yellow pine. Tamarack
and rod fir that only need transporta
tion to the outside world to make
them eagerly sought for. It is a. good
class of timber, too. Trees that make
a high grade of lumber rover thous
ands of acres in the mountains and
abound along the mountain streams,
making them easily "logged ' into the
valley below. In the neighborhood of
the Dixon ranch alone stand within
a radius of three miles of a given
point more than 50,0(10,000 feet of
choice timber ready for transporta
tion and the logger.
Excellent Quarries.
Along the banks of Owen Creek and
other streams are vast quarries of a
superior building stone' that would
rival much that is shipped for long
distances in the East. Like many
of the building stones of Eastern Or
egon, when first quarried it is soft
and can be cut like cheese, but when
exposed to the sun and weather, it
.hardens, becomes glazed and lasts
forever, having a beautiful dull light
brown color.
Coal Beds.
Coal has been discovered at the
head of Butter Creek, eight miles
from Alba that may prove the begin
ning of great coal discoveries in this
country. It is believed that the Bluo
Mountains are rich with this deposit
in many places and this section of
the country has hopes in this line.
The famous Morrow county diseov-
erles were mado Just 15 miles west
liom this point and it is believed that
the JJutter Creek discovery is a part
of this great vein. Developments so
far have found veins from a foot to
18 Inches in thickness, and though
but little' prospecting has been done.
It is expectpd to find larger forma
tions at a gre..ter depth. The qual
ity discovered burns well and al
though there Is enough wood in tills
section to supply the Northwest Pa
cific country for a siege, it is believ
ed that ere many years the people of
Camas Prairie will bo burning nativo

Railroad Needed.
"A railroad Is what we need," said
a prominent citizen. "We have been
expecting one for 20 years, and why
our resources do not attract the men
who build railroads is hard to tell,
but fc-e know that It will be only a
question of Ume until we get one.
"Coal and building stone do not
constitute the whole of our under
ground wealth. A large quantity of
quartz has been discovered at tho
head of Owen's Creek, and while it
ras not proved high grade ore, yet
o.ily surface specimens have been
assayed. In fact, there Is gold in
small quantities all over the basin
and wherever the mother lode lies
there must be quantities, and It Is

A few sawmills with small capacity
have been established in sections of
the timber belt, but the slow meth
ods of transportation retard the In

Hot Springs.
Adjacent to the basin are two won

Final Chapter In Deadly Feud
tween Bear and Wolves.
A -leadly feud had an ending in the
desert town of Randsburg. Cal.. re-1
cently. George Hurton, a San Diego
prospector was a witness of the final
act in tho tragedy. What the early
chapters of the desert drama were
"will never be known, for it is a story
not of man, but of beast. That tho
quarrel was a hitter one Is attested
by the fact that the participants in
it were so absorbed that they forgot
their fear of mail, their most formida
ble enemy, and brought their quarrel
to his very door.
Burton and the members of the
household where ho was staying, were
sitting on the veranda of the house
late one afternoon, when their atten
tion was nttracted to a column of dust
traveling across the lescrt, betokening
the movements of some animated ob
ject. They were soon able to deter
mine mat tne oust column was ap
proaching, and as it came nearer it
was seen that a number of animals
were swiftly approaching the village.
A little later it was seen that one of
these animals was a full-grown bear
and the others three of them were
engaged in worrying the larger ani
mal. The bear was headed straight
for tho town, and it was not long till
he was opposite the house.
Either because the bear had become
exhausted or that he discovered that 1
ho was entering the domain of his
enemy, man, ho wheeled upon his ad
versaries and showed fight.
The wolves showed a high degree
of cunning in the battle which fol
lowed. Separating, they began circ
ling around the bear, keeping suffi
ciently far apart so that ho would not
have more than one of them in front
of him at a time. Then, while ho was
endeavoring to face them all at once
those In tho rear would dart forward,
from time to time and sink their sharp
teeth into his tough hide. This would
cause the bear to wheel about, bring
ing another of his enemies upon his

was staying each had guns, but they
determined to let tho animals settle
tho battle for themselves. In the
course of the two hours that the bat
tle continued the contestants moved
several rods away from tho house.
but they were all the time In plain
view. At last the bear showed nlgns
of great fatigue and semed about to
weaken. Then all the wolves rushed
upon li f 111 at once, with the evident
determination to end the struggle
then and there. They reckoned too
soon upon the victor)', however, for
with a blow of his paw he laid one of
their number out stiff. Tho other two
fought shy for a time, but they had
too nearly conquered their formidable
foe and he finally rolled over com
