Mention was mtule in our'
columns Inst week or the nrrlvnl
from the cant of a party consistlne;
ot Georj-c W. I.luyil, A. II. ncKm,
S. H. l'oster mid I'riuik Slmouds,
from Mas4ncliUHetts and Khode j
Island, also of their departure the
following day for the Jlohcmin
Mlnlue District, whete they put in
a week making an Inspection of
properties uicre iiiciutiiiiK tne
Crystal Coiwolldutcil and the Ho
hernia, both of which Mr I.loyd in
intercstcil in ttitc extensively.
The party returned to this city on
Monday, rcmniniiiK here a short
time before leaving for their return
trip home.
, The visitors who accompanied
Mr. I.loycl were more than pleased
with the outlook and especially of
the property which they came to
especially Insiiect, that of the Ho
hernia Gold Mining Co. which fact
is best evidenced by their actions
immediately upon their arrival
from the district. They at once
proceeded to it telegraph office i
where Mr. Hston authorized his
broker iu Iloston to purchase too,
ooo shares of the stock oi this com
pany and Mr. Simonds authorized
the purchase of worth of ;
stock in the same company oy
those whom he represented.
The party left Tuesday on the
southbound train for home via
San I'rancisco, Salt I.aUc City,
Cripple Creek and Denver, which
plnccs they will visit a short time
on their return trip.
These gentlemen who accom
panied Mr. I.loyd on his trip
through Hohemia were surprised

The following short description
of the liohcmla Gold Mining Co's
property is from a recent dispatch
to the livening Telegram from this
place and indicates the condition of
things iu that camp and the pro
gross ol development on the prop
erty: "On the properties of the Ho
hemia Gold Mining Company ex
cellent work has been done, and on
the Gold Cross claim ore bodies
. lmvc been opened up which are the
largest ore bodies ever seen. At
present it has shown for a length of
500 feet in the tunnel, and the face
of the tunnel is iu good ore. There
is no reason to doubt but what the
oielxxly will "continue for a long
distance'. Mr, Higgins, the super-1
Intcndeut, has done his work in 0 1

the Hohemia Girl along the vein.
This tunnel will be about 800 feet
vertically below the Gold Cross
tunnel, and there is not any doubt
but what enough ore will be
opened up to last a lifetime. A
conservative estimate places the
amount of ore iu sight at not less
than 50,000 tons. The company
contemplates erecting next spring
n 106-tou plant on the Horse Heuv
eu creek, a short distance below
the Hohemia Girl tunnel, where
sufficient power can be obtained to
run the mill every day in the year."

work, as to ship ores to the smelters
at present is impracticable; but a
railroad is being surveyed from
Cottage Grove iu that district, and
when it is iu oK ration it will open
up one of the best mining districts
iu western Oregon. At present
considerable capital has been in

of the South 1'ork of the 1'nll river,

over 6000 mining location arc in
existence, upon which mining as
sessment work is being done. This
is known ns the Hohemia Mining
District. Considerable agitation is
being carried on to have. these
townships restored to the public
domain, principally from the fact
that the land is neatly all covered
by mineral locations. The same
district is very heavily timbered
with red fir.
In the southern end of the re
serve sheep are sometimes retained
on the range as late as October,
and iu such instances great damage
has been done. It is recommended
that for the better protection of the
grazing lauds, sheep should not be
oeruulteil to remain within the re

presence alter that Hate seriously

District, this morning received a
letter from the mines informing
him that during the last few dajs a

which shows remarkably well. It
shows what miners term nugget
