No abatement in the richness of the
great gold fields in the Pine Creek distrlet.
The excitement still continues and more is
daily added ns new, and if possible, still
richer ledges are reported found. The pros
pects of the mines where shafts have Iwcn
sunk, increase In value, in all the ledges so
worked, It is expected that a quartz mill
will soon be in full operation. Capitalists
are arriving every day from all parts of the
United States, and are amazed at the rich
ness and extent of the ledges. The candid
opinion of all who have visited the mines,
is that it could scarcely be possible for rock
to bo richer than that of these ledges.
Several transfers of mines are reported.
Hc-ides the quartz ledges there is every in
dication that rich placer diggings will be
found, that will well pay the hardy miner
for his toil. The Pine and Kaglo Creek

A rtnln Statement of fact si
To tiik People ok Hdkuk and Union Corx-
There was organized in Paker City on
AuL'iist iWth an Immigration Society Its
object is to gather information of every
kind concering the resources of llaker mm
Union counties and cause the same to Do
published in the East. Arrailgments ui'l
also be made to have an exhibit of agricul
tural and mineral specimens lu soino of
the central points in tho older States. We
trust the people will take tho trouuic to
forward to the Secretary all matters of in
fnroxt. tnirctbnr with such sncciiliciis,
either agricultural or mineral, as may be
worthy of exhibition. Send your name
with each specimen.
It mav seem to some that such an or
ganization is unnecessary, in view ol the
fact that the. last l.euislaturo appropriated
$10,000 to aid a State Hoard of Immigration
in regard to the resoures of Oregon. In
paying this sum linker and Union counties
pay their full proportion, lis they are now
among tho lirst on the list of taxation.
Hut it isu fact that tho State Hoard is ex
tending its influence solely for the benefit
of Southern Oregon and Willamette Valley,
and !f we expect to derive advantage lroin
immigration we must rely upon our own
efforts. Wo do not wish tt dbtrnct from
the mreitsof those portions of our State
which seem to tho State Hoard to consti
tute Oitl'oii. His triii! that in the matter
of rain. fog. mud, rust, ague, nsthmii, con
sumption, catarrh, typhoid fever, inort
gages and bankrupt sales, the Willamette
Valley exceeds tins country; but for sub
limity of climate, richness, of soil, diversi
ties of hiduntries, froedom from, disease,
scarcity of mortgages, and general pros
perity of Unpeople, wo certainly can just
ly claim superiority.
Kotwitliotandlng the fact that the lead
ing papers of Portland will nay hut littlo
about it, and the State Hoard to an immi
grant never, our mineral resources are so
L'rent and tho amount of bullion taken
from our mines so regular mid valuable
