That the immediate future of the
Bohemia Mining District depends
jlargely upon the success of the
efforts now being put forth to get
a railroad into that vicinity is well
known to all who are familiar with
the situation. A vast amount of
money is being expended in de
veloping the property and mines
are being opened up that are
simply wonderful, in that they con
tain ledges equal in per cent value
and quantity to anything known in
the famous Cripple creek country
when the rush was made to that
camp; but under the conditions
now existing it is all but impossible
to bring to light the fabulous wealth 1

question and It IS COIlhdeiltly ex-
peuted that the department will act
in sufficient time to allow work to
begin at once. The Oregonian of
last Sunday commenting editorially
on the proposition to withdraw
from the timber reserve these four
townships says: .
"The move to elhsiuatc from the
infcycV to Mi
Cascade forest reserve four town
ships of the Bohemia Mining Dis-
trict is based on a desire to open
that section to industrial activity.
The petition for setting out those
townships recites that the district is
of vastly more importance for its
minerals than for its timber, that
the process of mining development
has proceeded so far as to leave no
possible doubt of the richness of the
ledges, and that the rules regulat
ing mining operations within forest
reserves do not permit sufficient
freedom of action to meet the ne
cessities of an active mining camp.
Transportation facilities are an im
perative necessity, and capital can
not be induced to build railroads
u,,uc' '" ' "Ffv
reserves. For these reasons it is
requested that this tract be set out
of the reserve in order that the
operation of the mines may proceed
Unimpeded. That is a well-known
mining district, and a considerable
degree of development has been
