Co. is making preparations to com

plant will be installed on the

the logs to the mill for a distance of
(ieo. W. I.loyd left for a ten days
business trip to San Francisco last
Friday. Mr. Lloyd's business is in
the interest ot the Crystal Consoli
dated, and when he returns he will
have closed a deal for the com
pany's 25-ton stnmp mill, which
will le Installed at the earliest pos
sible moment. With Mr. Lloyd
the Ciyslal is beyond the experi
mental stage, anil he feels that in
tliis piopcrty he has one of the best '
mines in the Pacific Northwest. 1
However. Mr. Lloyd is interested
in. other properties and just before
he left for San Francisco, In con
versation with a reporter, he said:
"I was particularly pleased with
our property known as the Bo
hernia Gold Mining Co., which
owns is claims in llohemia Dis
trict. The conipanv has expended
over fltH.ooo in the last year in the
development work of its properties.
The principal work has been done'
on the Gold Cross and Bohemia (
Girl claims. The drilt on the vein
of the Gold Cross has exposed an
ore body 535 feet in length. A
crosscut shows the width of the
vein to be 17 feet. 1 lie average
value of all the ore is 510 per ton.
Tests show that this ore will con
centrate eight to ten tons into one,
and the concentrates make fine
smelting ore, carrying gold, copper
"On the llohemia Girl a tunnel
is being run to tap the Gold Cross
vein which passes through the en
tire length of the Bohemia Girl
claim. This tunnel is over 300
feet in length. Quite a lot of ore
has licen found in the tunnel, but
the management believes that an
additional length of from 200 to
300 feet will have to be driven be
fore the Gold Cross vein is reached.
"The company during the vear
finished paying lor the Gold Cross
and the llohemia Girl claims, and
its officers feel sure that they have
a great mining property in the
"The other groups belonging to
the company show fine veins but
only the annual assessment work
has been done on them. This year
the company proposes to patent all
its properties, and next year it will
erect 11 large concentrating plant to
treat the ore of the Gold Cross
F. J. Hard, ot the Vesuvius, was
in tliis city the last of last week
and the first of this, in the interest
of his company, his principal busi
ness being the purchasing of sup
plies, and he was chuck full ot
business from morning until night.
These supplies run into thousands
of pounds and will be taken into
the district this week. In connec
tion with this he also received and
billed to the mine ooo ciiiids of
assay supplies, among which was a
Cary furnace anil n set or Ains
worth's best scales.
In conversation with Mr. Hard
that gentleman said to a Nugget
man. "The early spring has
hastened the commencement of
work on many properties in the dis
trict that heretofore have shown no
activity until much later in the
season. A large amount of money
' is already represented in ttic de
velopment work now going on,
iintl in fact there has probably
1 been more work accomplished this
spring tliau in nuy lull season lie
fore. The roads arc in splendid
condition either by way of Hard
scrabble or the Warehouse. The
new road up Champion basin gives
to that part of the district a long
needed inlet, and will be greatly,
appreciated by the property holders
in that section "
When the reporter asked of Mr.
Ilurd what he thought of the Ore
gon & Southeastern R'y,. he said:
"It makes rue smile all over when
I think of my first trip witli a pack
train into the district. I tell you
riding on a train halfway and the
other half on one of the fine stages
from the I-asliion stable beats the
old way of travel all to nieces.
"Though llohemia is moving
slowly, marked improvements can
be seen in all directions, and for my
part I would be willing to see a
regular boom 011, as would be the
case if llohemia was in any other
section of the world. There is
enough ore to be seen, the ledges
are so strong and every advantage
for economic mining nnd develop
ment so apparent, that if the people
of Oregon would place more stress
on mining than they do on agri
cultural and stock raising, the
demonstration of llohemia alone
would attract to the state the same
rush that has marked the growth of
the states that have pushed mining
to the front, as their most attrac
tive feature of production. It is
tlie precious metal that everybody
wants; that the crowds arc after
and the faintest news heads them
to the section of the latest strikes.
A few people want cattle and horses
a few people want hops a few
people want farms some want
salmon and some prune orchards
buj everybody wants gold."
Regarding his own interests in
Bohemia Mr. Hard said: "There
is not 'much going on around my
camp at the present time but work.
The Vesuvius is running a level
from the upraise blocking and pre
paring to stope, and will be able to
crowd the mill to its utmost ca
pacity as soon as I am able to get
the machinery installec. Ar the
Oregon Colorado we are pushing
ahead in the big tunnel, saving ore
every day. We ate also starting
work in the upper tunnel which
will enable us to work in the ore
on both ledges,
"Capital work wilt be pushed
rapidly on the Riverside from the
upper workings. There is every
evidence that this property will
show as much ore as the Vesuvius
or Oregon-Colorado before fall."
