This makes five large saw mills in

out hundred of thousands of feet

large corps of men in converting the
raw material into marketable values
and great wealth.
The new railroad is slowly but
surely spanning the intervening
distance of (hirtyfivc miles between
Cottage Grove and the magnificent
mineral zone of Hohemia. Over
ten miles of this road art; now com
pleted and operated by two daily
trains to lied rock on the Row
river, carrying the bulk of freight
to the. mines and returning with
heavy laden .cars of logs for the
saw mills and hundreds of tons ol
high grade base ores to be for
warded to distant points lor smelt

are clearing the right of way for
the new road through the forest at
', the other end, while other lorces
are blasting out the stumps and
rock cuts and preparing the grade
for the laying of more track.

IKirts the completion of the drill
plant and the .s.nisfoctory working I
ol tlte same. ' Tlie recent outer 01
S.ooo pounds of giant powderhas
arrived at the mine and has been
securely stored for future use. The
new Lcyner drills are starting ofl
well and prove very successful un
der the management of Mr. CHfte;
of Denver. Drifting on tlte ledge
will lie prosecuted vigorously from
now forward. Everything in and
nbout this splendid property is now
tti the best or shape anil tlie tttturc
lias indeed a bright outlook.
One of the fine properties located
on the west side of the Ilohemia I
District and running from the Fair
view creek up the mountain towards
old Ilohemia and Fairview is the
Jtnlson Rock group of nine claims.
This group has three well defined
broad and highly mineralized ledges
running through its entire length,
the central lode being a' coutinun
lion of the famous Muslck lode.
Tunnels and surface openings have
been driven on each of the severgl
claims 'comprising this firottp with
most flattering results. Samples
of the ore taken from the various
workings of this group and sent to
the most reputable nssayers and
metalurglsts of Portland, San Fran
cisco and Salt Lake City give re
turns varying from $151 .60 to $188,
90 per ion. A long tunnel Is now
being started on the central lone a:
the lower end of the group and is
in over 100 feet now the face of.
the. drift being in solid quartz.
which will tap tlie ore Homes ai a
great verticle depth from the rich
surface croppings. As work goes
forward on tills group it will take
its place in the front rank along
with the many now famous prop
erties of Hohemia.
A letter from Secretary Jordan,
of the Crystal Consolidated Com
pany, who is now at the mine, gives
n most glowing account of the work
now being driven and the result
showing up. The main tunnel on
the Mountain I.iou claim is now in
oet 150 feet on the ledge and in
high grade quartz, the entire length
A crosscut has just been made
showing ten feet of solid ore with
values much increased as depth is
attained. A large force is con
stantly at work and the progress
being made and volume and values
of ore being encountered are very
satisfactory to the management.
New and commodious bunk aud
boarding houses have' been com
pleted for winter occupancy and all
is now in readiness for continuous
work.' Large beanis. for the new
mill are being gotten out and the
frame work will be in readiness by
the time the machinery shall have
arrived. The Crystal is surely
destined to be one o( the great
rolue&of Bohemia in the near future.
Renorts from the Sunrise groups
are verv flatterintr and work is
mil South I jixtcni a i
being energetically proseiu'ril.
The Hohemia Gold Mining Cora-,
pany, under the management of.
lieo. v. Lloyd, is doing extensive
.work 011 the Gold Cross and Ho
hemia Girl claims, with flattering
results. On the west slope of
Noonday ridge over 500 feet of
tunnel has been run ou the ledge
in continuous milling'orc from start
to finish. Ou the north side of the
ridge, a tunnel 100 feet long has
been driven, which gives the oper
ators a much greater depth than at
ths former workings.. Alnrce
bunk and cook liou.se has been
erected and every precaution is
being- made for continuous work
throughout the winter.
Prospectors are daily coming
into town with rich specimens
from new fields in every -ection ol
llxhlblt At liURenc.
The exhibit of ores from the Ho
hemin District at the Carnival
grounds at Eugene last month was
both extensive aim orustic. con
siderable attention was attracted by
the manner in which the large
amount of ore was arranged to
catch tlie eye of the mining man.
It could not have been better ar
ranged, and the committee in charge,
Mr. Mel Watuer and Mr. Herbert
Leigh, arc to be congratulated on
the excellent result of their labors.

Bohemia An Extensive District.
Richard White came down from
Bohemia Monday returning Wed
nesday. He reports everything
looking fine up there this fall and
says many interesting things' about
that great mining district. Mr.
White has a group of five claims on
FairvlewCr'eek about a mile north
of the Benson hotel in v hich he
has great hopes for the future.
According to his investigations and
those of others with whom we have
talked, the Bohemia Mining Dis
trict is much more extensive than
is supposed by those not familiar
with the district and we will not be
at all surprised if 'within a fev
short venra ierrit6rv. now con
sidered Cut of the district will be
