1'. K. Day, a
Hartford, Conn
ticor)italist, who has just returned
fifPliWP'IPP tlicHohcmin
mines, says tuai (lie iioucmia wis-
trict is one ot the most promising
mining sections of the united
States, not even excepting Colo
rado. Ho thinks the people of
Oregon do not bcuin to appreciate
the value of their mineral resources,
but that in n very short time the
richness of the mines will bedctn
onstrated. Mr. Day says he is not
n mining mau.but.hns learned some
thing of mincti through having
made .some unprofitable investments
n few vcars aco. He now owns
mining procrtv in Colorado and
Utah, and has uist invested some
money in the Hohcmin District.
When seen at the Portland Hotel
vcsterJav. Mr. Day said that the
great difficulty in the Hohcmin
mines has been the long-distance
haul of 36 miles by team, which is
the only means of getting the base
ores to the railroad. This distance
has already been reduced 10 miles
bv the construction of n railroad,
and by February 1 he thinks the
road will be completed nearly to
the mines. When mat is nccotU'
nlishcd. he thinks the cost of trans
nortinir the ore will be reduced to
one-fifth, nnd perhnps one-tenth of
what it is now, nnd the value ot tlic
mining property will be doubled.
Thnt the quantity of paying ore
is practically inexhaustible, he lias
no doubt, niter linving inspected
some of the mines now in operation.
"The surface of only a few claims
has scarcely been scratched, yet,
he said, "and some of the mines
are paying development work alone
Exhnustiblel Why, your grand
children will be receiving dividends
from the mining operations in Bo
hemin district."
Mr. Day left Inst evening for his
home in Hartford, greatly enthused
with the bright outlook for miuiug
in Oregon in the future.
Purchase Mining Claims.
The "Ibex" nmr'HutTalo" min
ing claims nt the foot of Hnrdscrnb
ble Ridge on the Sharp's Creek
trail into the Bohemia district were
purchased this week from their for
mer owner, W. w. rinwiey, oy u.
L. Johnson nnd Win. Wechter ol
Salem, who nlrendy have n group
of six or seven claims adjacent to
them In this sale is also included
the hotel and commodious barn sit
uated on the property nnd familiar
to everybody passing over tills
road, to or from thedistrict. These
gentlemen ore practical, experienced
mining men, hence know a good
thing when they see it nnd are not
slow to net.

Bhnson Drug Co.
by Dr. W. W. Jobnon of Oregon
City nnd l'rnnk Urn in August,
1858. JnmcH Johnson nnd George
Ramsey reached it In 1851 nnd free
lioiif. cold wns then found near head-
of the I waters of City Creek. The dis
covery Drought many prospectors
to the Calapooln mountains. John
mjii was a lioheinlau by birth and
from this fact was the district so
name4. Their finds were reported
to be marvels of richness. It is
supposed their first gold was lotind
upon the claim known as the
"Mystery" and now n portion of
the holdings of the Oregon Se
curities Company. Todny interest
regarding early knowledge of the
Ilohcniia district centers in the
goings of a Mr. Knott, who, in
1875, more than ten years after
gold was first discovered, trans
ported a five stamp mill over a road
made from Frank llrass creek up
onto the top of the divide, follow
ing the ridge for many miles and
luially, after n great many trials
and hardships, it was placed in po
Mtion on the Knott claim on
Grouse mountain. I he mill was
run nt intervals for two or three
years when interest, in the district
virtually dwindled nway. A re
vival began in 1890 when two pros
pectors. Joseph Kennedy nnd O. P
Adams, went to prospecting to find
the gold they had for years con
tended existed in those mountains.
Since that time prospecting and de
vcloping of properties has been
going on steadily. To Messrs. J
W.Cook and A. E. Davis of I.os
Angeles. Col Q. K. llrady of San
I'roucisco and J. W. Mustek, r
prospector of many years" ex
pcriencc. In Arizona, .California and
Oregon, can much of the carly'de-
velopmcnt and knowledge of the
district be credited. It was in the
spring of 1802 they contracted for
in Snu Francisco and had shipped a
tslnnn null. A crcat many dit-
Acuities attended the shipment of
the boiler, engine and other in a
clunery of this plant in sections
ovtr the steep, rocky nnd nrduous
trail to the l.os Angeles nnd Dc
fiance claims, now known as the
Mtisick mine. In October of thnt
yenr the mill wns ready to start
and the stamps began to drop, and
it being tlic winter season, with a
scarcity ol supplies, onij n nine
days' run wns nnd; the clean up
amounted to S4.000 from selected
ore. As one reads the record of
events it seems that work of devel
opment and improvement for years
wns only desultory, for in 1893 the
mill wns run, oil and pu, the Tail
cleanup netted $11,000. In 1894
over $5,000 was spent in dead work
the mill run occasionally from May
till November mid tlic clean up
was $13,000. The result of the
clean up for 189s was $14,498
From May, 1896, until February
1897, 17,137.10. for tlic same
period of the year following the
clean up was $35,873.25. During
all this time much prospecting was
going on for miles around. The
Champion put in n 10-stninp mill in
1895 and the Noonday n 20-stamr
mill in 1896. After the Sharps
creek road was built in 1898 many
more active and enterprising men
entered the districts mid systematic
development went rapidly torward
The road before that time only
went as far ns Hnwleys, n distance
about half way from Cottage Grove
to tlic Mustek mine, in tuc sum
mer of 1898 the county contributed
$700, mid the Bohemia Gold Mine
and Mill Company (the Musick
mine) nnd the prospectors in gcu
crnl chipped in the remainder nnd
tlic road was built up falinrps creek
It then follows in a wonderful
winding way for five nnd n half
miles on the steep sides of Falrview
mountain right up the sharp point
of Bohemia peak nnd for the dis
tance mentioned the grade is a
strong ten per ceut per mile.
What does the writer tliink ot tlie
district in a general way? As n
representative of mining papers he
has during the last twelve yenrs
visited the leading camps ot liritlsli
Columbia, Idaho, Oregon, Call
fori) la, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah
and Colorado As regards Cripple
Creek, many characteristics nre
similar. Outside of that the Bo
hernia Wining District compares
principally with those of Kosslaud,
13, C, nnd the great San Juan of
Colorado. No one to his knowl
edge ever saw two districts entirely
similar, even if only ten miles
apart. Many n well qualified nnd
educated mining expert has visited
Hit: district mid who of nil of them
has mild n word derogatory? Pro
fessors representing tlic U. 3. geo
logical survey, milling engineers
and metallurgists have traversed
its Ateep mountain sides and pene
trated the excesses made by tunnels
nnd other underground workings
nnd all have declared that true
fissure ledges trend all through for
miles, principally in n direction
northwest mid southeast, dipping
south nnd southwest mid occasion
ally dipping rather to the north.
The future mining situation ol
the ilolicmin District may be indi
cated by what n prominent woman
once) remarked, "When electricity
is called to its nid. ns it is now;
carried across the Rockies from
llutte to Anaconda 5,000 volt
power, mining will become like
manufacturing;" and so when the
Oregon Securities Company installs
u mammoth electrical plant on
Champion creek, probably at the
Warehouse, power will be trans
mitted tool! available points in the
Ilolicmin district nnd mining then
will be ns easy as manufacturing.

Tlic Golden Rule.
C. I.. Johnson nnd Wm. Wechter,
secretary and vice-president of the
Golden Rule Mining and Milling
Co., were in from Bohemia Satur
day. They report the company's
property as showing up very well.
Their reticence leads us to to the
old ndagc "Still water runs deep
and you don't know what is at the
bottom." They have splendid
property, well located and adjoin
ing the North Fairview Co. We
trust to be able to give the public
something more definite in regard
to this company 111 the near future.
Tlic Great Wnlhl Mine.
The great Waihi gold on mine of
New Zealand now operates 330
stamps, the second largest stamp
equipment of the world, being ex
ceeded only by the Alaska-Tread-
well. The mine has been success
fully operated, on an annually in
creasing scale, for about 15 years
In 1901 290 stamps crushed 159,'
325 tons of ore which yielded $2,-
236,850. The total product to May
1002 was $10,662,350. The deepest
workings are but 643 feet nnd there
nrc immense bodies of pnyore.
The amount in 'sight was recently
estimated nt 628,595 tons. Divi
dends to date have amounted to $4,-
33i395- The company has a re
serve account of nearly $500,000.
