P. aTRAJSTK & SON,
The first cost of a small smelting
plant would be very small com
pared to the great amount of bene
fit derived from a plant of that
kind, for a custom smelter would
give emplo3'ment directly and in
directly, to at least 100 men, for
there will be trails to build, roads
to make and coal to burn, pack
animals to feed, and many of the
prospectors can employ from one
to three men on their claims if
furnished a market for their pro
ducts. Even if there was no money only
expenses from their ore, for as it is
he can only dump his ore down the
mountain where it is gone forever.
There are today more fair average
values, being thrown away in Bo
hemia than is being milled in the
great Treadwell of Alaska, or at
Dead wood, Dakota. The average
in the year 1899, just closed, for
the ore milled at the Treadwell
mill was $1.68 per ton while that
of the Homestake ran below $3.
I have before me assay certifi
cates irom 14 ctinerent claims rep-
presenting all parts of Bohemia,
which show an average of $13.25.
j So anyone can plainly see we have
much higher value to select from
than many of the largest mining
fields in the world. Even the
great Transvall gold fields out
produced an average of $7.00 per
ton. But the secret of their suc
cess lies in the fact of their reduc
tion works being the most modern
scientific discoveries, operated by
men of brains and capital.
It has been proven by experience
in several instances that the free
milling plants now in our camp are
not a success only for a short time
as the ores run from free on the
surface to base below, thereby
causing the free milling plant to be
either hung up or enlarged for con
centrating, entailing a big expense.
Besides there is still the expense of
shipping concentrates to Tacoma,
causing an outlay of $22 per ton
before the owner gets auything.
If the money expended in mills
in Bohemia had been put in one
good custom smeltdr the camp
could today be supporting 500 men
on good pay, where, as it is, there
is not over 20 men employed, a
most disgraceful showing for such
a camp. A raining man from the
northern part of Idaho, who re
cently saw and passed his opinion
on a lot of ore the writer sent him,
said in his letter: "Your camp is
a veritable treasure house and if we
had even a small streak, of such ore
as the lead and copper samples you I mills are not quoted.
sent me we would spend thousands
of cjollars following it."
So our plan is for the business
men of Cottage Grove to take this
matter in hand and organize a com
pany for the purpose of erecting a
smelter of, say about 20 tons ca
pacity, in a central part of Bohemia
to do custom work exclusive. Elect '
a competent board of directors and
their officers from the business men
of Cottage Grove. The Union
Water Jacket Smelting Company
will furnish plans, also a competent
man to manage for a time till some
of their own men can take hold and
manage. The first cost is the most,
as after the plant begins operation
there will be a dividend declared
quarterly that will equal 7 per cent
quarterly where, as it is with min
ing, like many we have already in
camp, there can be no dividend
without some mode of reduction,
and the man who invests in shares
of that kind has no recourse only
to eventually lose in the end. Be
sides if people here wait for some
company to come in and build,
they will not only make out of the
ore handled but will buy from
wholesalers and perhaps run a com
pany s,tore and compel employers
to trade with the company, and
perhaps move most of the town site
to the mines. Such things have
been done, even in Oregon, as is
the case with Baker City and
Sumpter. The writer was at that
place when the people of Baker
C'tv were clamoring for a railroad
to Sumpter, but 'when they got it a
good sized town built up out there
and their business now goes to
Portland, where if the people of
Ba er w uld have imp-oved their'
opportunity and completed the
Guirean Reduction works at that
place for one-half the money ex
pended in finishing the Sumpter
Valley railroad, they would have
retained their immense wholesale
trade with the mines, besides fur
nishing a market for the yast
amount of concentrates produced
in that district, and given employ
ment to some 50 men in their own
While a few men in every camp
make fortunes there could be more
makejust as much if given an op
portunity. Take Lewiston, Idaho,
for example. There are 1 1 men iu
that city wjio are worth over $1,
000,006 each, who have made their
money from just such opportunities,
and Lewiston is very little larger
than Cottage Grove. Some say
they have much richer and better
mines closer home. But such is
not the case. The writer has been
at the famous Buffalo Hump and
saw what they are working and
making so much noise about and
finds it does not equal the oppor
tunities here at the gateway to Bo
Next week the writer will give a
list of some of the prospects in
camp that show a fine grade of ore
with the amount of feet of develop
ment work thereon. The properties
here to be given are only prospects
and not mines. The mines with
