Saturday Edition
What U uppermost now In the
mirvde of baseball fans la the
question, "why not it pennant for
the Four-Team League T" And why
The four cltlej represented ta the
league could by popular subscription
' get a pennant, or get money enough
for one, In two hours and then
some If necessary. La Grande, El
gin, Enterprise and Joseph could se
cure a flag that would delight the
heart of every city patriot If bis
team won It, and a. flag that would
be worth the effort and worth pre
serving. It would lend all the more
enthusiasm, to the playing of the
national game In the two counties
here. It would give a regard, ' a
legitimate reward and greatly elim
inate any of the petty "side bet
ting" that is sometlmesi made over
a clean, national sport. And it
would advance the spirit of every
player In the ' league. This mat
ter Is a small one, so far aa expense
be concerned, and the whole cost
would be divided between the sub
scription of four cities, so that a
very little from each Individual res
ident of those cities would be ample
to defray tihe expense. Why not
do It now?

Lostine Wins Over
Joseph in Debate
This Givs the, Former the Charn-
plnahip of Wallowa
Lostine won the championship of
Wallo,wa county. In the last high
3chool debate at Joseph, last Tues
day night. Winning this- meet from
Joseph places' Lostine High ahead
to receive the applause of every"
other high school in the ' county,
though the latter met defeat. It
was an ably conducted debate
throughout, the argument presented
by the sister city Lostine being de
termined' stronger than that of her
competitors, and the little city's
high school team being the victors
easily. -
Jhe Debaters. .
The. victors who won for Lostine
the honors accorded were as fol
lows: Miss Grace McCubbin, Mr.
Frances Wier and Mr. Fred Reed.
The Joseph trio of debaters was
as follows: Miss Ora Cole, Mr.
Merrttt Cole and Miss Louise Doug
las. - ,
The1 question debated Tuesday
night was, "Resolved, That United
States . senators should be elected,
by . tie popular ,vote." s. Lostine . had
the affirmative.
The Judges. '
Although Superintendent of Schools
Conley demurred and , would have'
preferred not serving as a judge of
the concluding debate, the school
teachers represented Insisted that
he do eo, and he agreeably consent
ed. The other two judges were, Mr.
Bailey of Elgin and E. E. Bragg, J
superintendent of the Union, coun
ty schools.
Victors are' Happy.
Lostine was strongly represented
in theattendance at Joseph, and
both debaters and enthusiasts, on
passing through Enterprise Wednes
day morning took occasion to demon
strate that the "Lo3tine High" was
very much alive. The happy, laugh
ing young ladles amd gentlemen; left
the train here for a few minutes' to
give their class cries and to do some
timely boosting for Lostine schools
and1 for Lostine as a city. They
were applauded by the hearers, and
again boarded the traini home bound,
delighted with the entire Tip.

Good Prospect of

County With Suffi
' cient WorK.
It id usual for a so-called "min
ing camp paper'.' torelate with bold,
black headlines and continuously
big ' putfs" about the mineral of its
locality. Such a paper, anywhere, of
the very nature of Its subject mat
ter, can tell the truth, the whole
truth, and then some. Sometimes It
tells the truth and then some, be
cuue one authority Is as good as
another, when It comes ' to seeing
jM feet through' rock Into the ground.
Such a paper can make the statement
plausible that a given ledge runs and
expands as It runs, 1000 feet down;
and It can not be proven, wrong. .
This paper is not a mining camp
taper, to begin with. It would not
consciously misrepresent a solitary
Jetall of Its county's mineral possi
bilities, if it were. When therefore,
'it seeks to give, as la this article,
an account of the mineral lying in
th nearby hills, it seeks to give noth-
in Due wnax is Known, to oe ooaerv,- a,
uuie, concrete mineral fact. It does
not seek to mislead a single eastern
aw, home -Investor, nor to predict
more for the mineral future than
.he present mlneial facts justify.
. tig In Developing. .
All mineral properties experience
a long dev loping period. All mineral
belts or localities have to go through
a generation! of prospecting, before
the development is sufficient to war
rant the Investment of big capital.
But all real mineral belts are devel
oped, sooner or later, simply because
an capital must have avenues for In
vestment, and because the world
must Jiave mineral., That is plain.
L Taking the Calumet and Hecla
mine, of Calumet, Mich., as an ex
ample, the prospector of that copper
dihlrict prospected and developed
prospects for years, before capital
co ld be Interestel. Capital laugh
at the , prospej ir for -about
rem ration. Capital tc :u the pros
pi.'.jr tha the !uter had no min
eral iherolul the prospector nursed
big conviction deep in his troubled
soul, and worked away. The deep
er into the ground he went the more
ev.'tlence he found) with which to con
vince . capital. Until flnallv. after
weary years had dragged, out
w r
Ihtir length, and the weary prospec
tor. naa dragged out the greater part
cf his iife, capital, was "shon."
Trday the Calumet mine Is about
a mile into the ground, with about
four or five miles of underground
workings. Native copper Is found fn
such boulders that It can not be
b!asted,' but is. cut out. And no ono
today denies that there Is copper In
that district.
Wallowa Hat Min-al.
; Wallowa county, and especially
the Joseph and Enterprise district,
has mineral. We kno.w that it has
good, mineral, and anybody can know
H, simply because good mineral is
taken out of the ground, and may be
eeu. One group, the Comet" hold
ings has some of the finest sam
ples of gold, silver and copper ore
to be found la eastern Oregon.
The contact lies between granite
and, lime. The samples assayed at
practically the surface, give $70 in
gold to the ton, S3 in silver and! $2
in copper. The silver occurs In many
Places la the ore In "ruby" and pre
ents a beautiful picture. The full
values! in, copper have not been, de
termined, In that the deeper tha con
tact runs the better the copper ap
pears to grow.
Ledga Nine Ff?t,
The ledge in the "Comet" runs
nine feed wide with an ore shoot
of 44 4nches. At the very surface,
Defore more than a "face" of the
ledge was exposed, the gold values
ran o?65 to the ton. The mineral-
ized zone of rock, so far as surface
indications show, .runs or appears to
run the practical length of the hill,
giving volume to what doubtless
will prove a producer with develop
ment. " .
All. that the mineral in the Enter
prise and Joseph district needs i
more prospecting. It matters noth
ing at all that more or less surface
scratching has beem carried on for
20 years or more. The district needs
that development work which practi
cally all mineral belta have""passed
through before a single producer
was. found. With such development
work done here; with prospectors
scouring the hills, sticking to one
ledge, boring forever down, upon it
and, following it into the ground
with a lew years of this sort of
work capital will get Interested if
anything Is found sufficient to in
terest It. Millions - of money are
waiting for good investments, min
eral and otherwise. What is up to
the prospector of Wallowa county
is, to "show" capital, that we have
the mineral.
- That the mineral is here this pa
per entertains no doubt at all.
But that the procspectors will de
velop It by hard sacrifice, continu
ous labor, and firm conviction that
time will call forth a producer here
this Is up to WaMowa county to

Alec. Donnolly, holding one of the
beat silver properties lr all the west,
will probably make a transfer of a
considerable share of the holdings
this week. Messrs. Maybray, Hosier
and Eves from the Coeur D'Alene
district are on the ground, and Don
nelly has called off all stock .sales.
This looks good to Enterprise. It
appears to mean, that the deal Is
practically sebtled, and that experi
enced men of sufficient capital will
take hold pf what is undoubtedly one
of the beat silver properties in all
the west.
According to report, the lelgo will
run nearly 100 feet wide with an ore
shoot varying from two to nine feet.
This ore ehoot, again according to
report, carries silver to the extent
of 1200 ounces to the ton, making
a value of $C0O to the ton, figuring
Jllver at 60 cents.
This deal merely shows what will
eventually be done In the Enter-
prlse-Jo3eph-LostIne mineral district.
While It takes time to develop m
eral, having the mineral Is the pri
mary essential, and Enterprise has
the mineral.
