THE JOURNAL'S WRITKUP.
The Oregon Mining Journal
which is now, always and forever
more, for Southern Oregon mines
has devoted considerable space of
late to the Bohemia district on ac
count of said Mining Journal's
representative having secured a few
subscriptions up here some few
weeks ago, and after enumerating
the several properties in a very
ordinary manner, gives the camp
this black eye:
"The principal drawback to this
section has been its heavy snows in
winter, which prevents packing in
or out from this district, thus de
terring many from operating in the
district in winter. They claim the
snow does not amount to much un
til January or February, but when
it comes, from ten to twenty feet of
snow lays on the mountain till May
or June, tbis year up to July.
Many parties spend the winter in
the mountains going all around on
snow shoes, but most of the
properties are closed down during
the winter months."
Now as a matter of fact the above
clipping- is decidedly far fetched,
and entirely uncalled for. The
Journal's, representative knows very
well that last winter, was an un
usually severe one throughout the
Northwest , its equal having never
been known in the history of the
camp and in all justice to the dis
trict and mining men who are cast
ing about for openings, it is no
criterion. Quite frequently from 8
to ro feet of snow, and sometimes,
upon the higher derations, 20 feet,
falls iu this district during January
and February, but with few ex
ceptions, active mining operations
are commenced in May, and the
Musick mine has twice in its his
tory, when poorly equipped as to
buildings, been able to run the year
around. Even the last winter
which is so emphatically alluded to
by the Journal's writer, active
operations were commenced in the
latter part of June, and as to the
snow laying on the- mountains,
"this year up to July," it is de
cidedly misleading, as only a very
sniall amount of snow could be seen
in July and that upon the highest
peaks, which are nearly always
spotted with snow. The assertion
was entirely uncalled for and leaves
an impression not deserved by the
camp, and certainly not appreci
ative. Brother Conklin is also some
thing of a health advisor. After
commenting upon the beauties of
nature as witnessed in Bohemia
district he winds up with this:
'Those who are looking for
health could not do better than
spend a few weeks in this very
healthy country with its nice cold
mountain water and bracing at
mosphere." Tin's little "effort" is deserving
of much praise, and undoubtedly is
of great interest to mining men,
who are always in delicate health
and whose entire energies are de
voted to seeking out bracing at
mosphere and secluded nooks for
invalids. Mr. Conklin could pei
haps make a handsome speck by
leasing a few acres of land in Bo
hemia and building storage depots
for invalid's chairs, vapor baths,
flannels and flesh brushes during
January, February, March, April,
May, June and July 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
7, when the district is snowed

Sued for Damages.
The Noonday Mining Company,
C. M. Collier, surveyor; G. G.
Warner and D. B. Murray will
this week sued in the Lane county
I circuit court for $5,050 each, or a
i total of $25,250 by Robert Martin,
Charles Beck, R. T. Martin, J. R
James and H. D. Tefft. The com-
plaintants are represented by At
torney A. C. Woodcock and At
torney J S. Medley, two
prominent attorneys of this
district. The following taken
from the Guard is the complaiut in
The complaints, each, in brief,
allege That Chas M Collier pro
cured the plaintiffs arrest on inform
ations signed and sworn to by
him charging them with hindering
him and by force preventing him
from surveying a claim in the Bo
hemia mining -district, by a duly
authorized officer of the U S court
and the plaintiffs were arraigned on
said charge at Eugene, before a U
S commissioner for the District of
Oregon; and that the other defend
ants herein and C M Collier con
triving and meliciously intending
to injure the plaintiff, conspired
and conferated together and ma
liciously and without probable
cause procured plaintiff to be ar
rested therefor. That on August
12, 1899, the plaintiffs were ex
amined before U S Commissioner J
J Walton, for the supposed crime,
who found them not guilty.
That for the purpose of defense
in this prosecution the plaintiffs
spent money in employing attor
neys in their defense, also were
compelled to lose time in leaving
their homes, and iu traveling to
Eugene and for payment for lodg
ings, etc, each of the plaintiffs were
damaged in the sum of $50.
That plaintiffs are otherwise in
jured and damaged on account of
their injured feelings, mental
sufferings, anguish and humiliation
in the further sum of $5,050 each,
or a total of $25,250.
