Orcgonlan Dec. 3.
I. II. Bingham of this city, who
is interested extensively in the Bo
hemia quartz mines, has iust re
turned from there, after spending
several days among the camps. He
predicts lively times in that portion
of Lane county on the completion
of the railroad from Cottage Grove.
Right-of-way men are now within
six miles of Champion Basin, the
proposed terminus, he said, and as
soon as the various deals are closed
he expects grading to begin. Some
little delay is anticipated in getting
through a portion of the iorest re
serve, and an attempt is being
made to have three townships re
stored to the public domain on ac
count of their value in minerals.
The Musick, Star and Helena
mines, r.lr. liingnam says, are to
be tapped by a series of long tun
nels from the Basin. The one con
necting with the Helena is to be
2500 feet long and through this
ore is to be run for shipmept to the
proposed smelter at Portland. The
building of this 37 miles of railroad
from Cottage Grove to the mines
will therefore hasten the erection
of a smelter, as the ore from the
Helena mine is now hauled by
wagon to Cottage Grove and
shipped in carload lots to Omaha.
going through this city.
A large amount, of base ore that
cannot be treated by the stamps
exists in the Bohemia district, Mr.
Bingham says, and a smelter will
The proposed railroad from Cot
tage Grove will pass through a
well-settled country for the first
20 miles, and, after that, through
heavy timber, which will be thus
rendered available for market. A
light, uniform grade has been found
by the surveyors up Row River,
Frank Brass and Champion creeks.
A new telephone line is to be in
operation between Cottage Grove
and Champion Basin by December
The season has thus far been
very mild in that vicinity, no snow
having yet fallen near the mines,
and the stage road is in very fair
condition. Provisions for the win
ter have already been hauled into
camp, lhe 10-stamp mill on the
Helena mine will be worked day
and night, all through the year.
Chas. F. Charles, the W. F. &
Co's messenger who was the hero
of the Cottage Grove hold-up on
the S. P. Co's lines about one
month ago has been well rewarded
by the company for his devotion to
duty. Shortly after the hold-up
he was given a transfer he desired
to a run out of San Francisco aud
moved there with his family from
Portand. Last Thursday he was
called into the office of Wells-Far-
go & Co., in' San Francisco and J
J. Valentine presented Charles for
the company with a beautiful en
graved medal and a check for
$1000 as a testimonial of the cor
poration's appreciation for his brave
deed in protecting their property
from the assaults of the train rob
bers. In receiving the gift Charles,
in his own modest way said he did
nothing more than his duty when
he stood by the defense of the com
pany's treasure and refused to
comply with the demands of the
train robbers. Tidings.

POINTERS FOR THE PROSPECTOR.
Little Things That Every Seeker
for Mines Should Know.
The success of the prospectors
depend upon a close application to
his calling, economy in living, and
a careful study of the minerals and
the country formation. Science is
not essential to the successful pros
pector, but he ought to be able to
determine the nature of the more
common ores in order to work in
telligently. Those that should be
studied to some degree are gold,
silver, lead, iron and copper. Each
of these when scratched with a
knife or other instrument will ex
pose a streak of bright metal and
to determine the character of the
ore, if not the value, is of much
importance to the prospector. How
ever, many men, wholly uniformed
have met with success.
Geology is better learned in field
work than from books if the pros
pector is observing and analyzes
the different rocks which he may
discover. To do this a few chemi
cals or acids are needed, the use of
which he may learn in one day
with the aid of a proper instructor.
Every man knows granite, from
porphyry or lime from quartz. Feld
spar is nearly like quartz, and may
be determined from quartz by a
smooth surface when taken from a
vein. Talc is a soft, slippery rock,
something like mica, or more like
Calcite, subject to an acid test,
will dissolve or effervesce, and is
an element of lime.
Dolomite .or. carbonate of lime
and magnesia, resembles calcite.
It is a character of limestone.
Gypsum is a sulphate of lime
and is difficult to determine, from
its hardness. It may be scratched
by the finger nail, and it will not
Garnets are usually found near
copper; they are of a reddish color
and rather tend to be in cubes in
the rock. Ex.
