W. 11.. Dennis of the Hlackbutte
cinnabar mines came in on Mon
day, accompanied by Professor
Edward Lang, the noted landscape
artist, who has completed two
large views ,1x5 of that section.
They are done in India ink and nre
especially fine. One is done Irom
an eminence looking down on a
broad panorama that reaches to
the coast and covers in all other
directions n fifty mile circuit, and
showing the ranges of mountains,
peaks, valleys, water courses, in
habited sections and forest wilds.
The other is looking up from the
valley at the approaches to and the
property of the Hlackbutte Com
pany, showing the substantial
quarters, the smelter plant, the
tramway on which the ore is sent
down from the mine away up on
the mountain side, the tunnels
leading ihto tiic ore bodies and a
large stretch of country round
about. Mr. Dennis has taken
these fine launscapes to Portland
with him to have them suitably
framed and will then bring them
back to adorn the walls of the
company's office near the mine.
