Messrs. Masterson and Sehr are now at their quarters, preparatory
to doing the assessment work on the Napanee group, the first of January.
It is the intention of the owners to do considerable development work
the coming year.
Papers throughout the Northwest are commenting favorably on Bo
hemia. The mail failed to reach Bohemia postoffice Monday night on ac
count of the recent rise in the various streams on the route.
Bohemia has outlived the day when mining operations stop and
the miners leave the diggings at the approach of winter. It matters
little now so far as the onward push of development work is concerned
whether it rains or shines. The hills are full ofmiuersandthe work goes
It is authentically reported that several gigantic tunnels will be
driven into several properties this coming year with the view of tapping
the ledges at a far greater depth than ever before. This is a move in
the right direction and should be persistently adhered to.
Spokane and British Columbia capitalists are now making prepa

the Northwest. B ohemia Nugget extends congratulations and wishes
Mr. Tozier and his new venture all success.
Mines and Metals says one of the first things Portland should get
on its "ground floor" is a good mining exhibit. Mines and metals is
perfectly correct in the assertion, and it should be composed of speci
mens from every camp in Oregon. Cottage Grove people should take
the thought home with them, and conclude that it would be a good
idea for this city to have a good mineral exhibit from Bohemia.
Oregon's mineral resources seem to be endless and to be branching
out in new directions all the time. Now comes a man from Walker who
has discovered an ochre mine from which he has dug all the colors of
the rainbow, and others. He has painted his barn with the product of
the mine, and finds that it wears better than white lead. The ochre has
been shown to Portland paint-dealers, who say that it is better than the
article which they now import. It is expected that the mine will soon
fee developed, and that it will produce enough ochre to pamt any town
