King'il Hinds mining superiu
temleiit ol the Glenwood Mining
C , returned from the district
Tuesday. He brought with hi n
several very fine samples ol free
milling ore taken from the tuuucll
iow being driven on the Omega
clnlm. This vein was struck
several days ngo and has continu
ally broadened out until now, after
having run on it only about 30
feet it is fully 4 feet wide. Snpt.
Hinds has not made an assay of
the ore yet, but as it Is the siime
ore nnd from the same vein as that
taken out of the I.ost Mine claim
just ncross the canyon, nnd belong
lug to the Glenwood Co., it will
run about the same. The ore
taken from the Lost Mine claim
assays $80.00 work will continue
on the Glenwood property during
the winter nnd from the wiy ever
thing is showing up now the com
pany will unve a big showing by
next spring. They have an ex
cellent piece of property backed by
good substantial business men aud
men who understand mining in its
every department and they have
the ore in sight. The Glenwood
will be n hummer when they get
the machinery In.
Herbert Leigh, mining manager,
and one of the chief stockholders in
the North Fairvlew Mining Co.,
came in from the property last
Wednesday and went on to Eugene
for a few days business visit before
returning to the camp. In con
versation with Mr. Leigh, he
speaks enthusiastically of the con
dition of the district generally, and
predicts not only a splendid season
next year, but a great future for
the camp. Speaking of the North
Kairvicw, Mr. Leigh mentioned the
recent strike on the property In the
opening up of the lead on the Belle
of I'airview claim, which showi
from sixteen to forty feet in width
for a distance of 3000 feet. It has
proved to be a true fissure vein ol
oxidized quartz, carrying ten feet
of ore that will average about $7
per tou. One hundred thousand
tons of this character of ore is al
ready blocked out, aud can be
mined and milled for $1.50 per ton.
At a depth of twenty-three hun
dred feet below this blocking this
same great body of ore crops out,
and the present indications are that
there are something over 1,000,000
tons of free milling ore. The slope
of Fairvlew ridge where this vein
cuts through is at nu angle of
about 45 (legs., which will1 give a
vertical depth of about 1200 feet 011
the ore body, as well asnu outlet on
the west side of the mountain below
the snow Hue. The Noith Fair
view is favorably spoken of by many
men in the district aud Is one of
the largest groups in Hohemin, 14
full claims belonging to it, running
from tlie west slope of Fnlrview
Mountain to the Champion Uasiu
road, 11 distance of nearly two mi es.
This r.'ceut strike in the Uelle of
I'airview is 011 tlie same great vein
that shows the rich free milling
ore in tbeeast end of the" property.
The compatly has devoted its time
this season in blocking out these
rich ore bodies, nnd the policy of
the company will be to continue
tills work throughout the winter,
with the view of installing a re
duction plant at the earliest pos
sible moment in the spring.

It seems that Mb Kerr had just
returned home from his brother's

up stairs when the robber broke
into the house. As he came down

robbers and struck by another with

an unconscious condition and was
qilickl) relieved of his money As
soon ns he ret'siued consciousness
he went to the camp of A. B. Wood,
Chief KiiKineerofthe O. S K.,
and told his story. Mr. Wood
'vired to the marshal, hut as Mr.
Kerr was unable to give nny
d -scriptloit of his nstailnuts it is

the identity of the robbers.
Judging from Mr, Kerr's face he
must have received n severe blow.

The investor is willing to buy, and

investor learns all about the camp

no territory in the section worthy
of attention, according to the tale
told by Mr Knocker, except his
own. The (prospective investor
becomes a pessimist and leaves the
camp without investing. Mr.
Knocker has killed a sale, and put
a stop to the great industry of mine
making in this section, where, if he
had told the truth, he would have
succeeded in interesting capital aud
would no doubt in time have dis

Discussion of the needs and meth

Evening session was introduced by
music, scripture reading and prayer.
The recitation "He didn't Think,"
by Miss Beulah DeSpain, plainly
told why so many young men fall.
Rev. Boyles, pastor of the C. P.
Church, of Cottage Grove, gave a
stiring address upon a few phases
of the temperance problem. Men
tioned some pointed facts: the large
majority of women and girls at
religious and temperance services,
in sharp contrast with the great
excess of men and boys in prisons
aud reformatories. The inconsis
tency of temperance workers fight
ing the brewers and then helping
harvest hops to make beer. Tem
perance people should deal with the
enemy as do soldiers of war, "No
aid nor comfort to the enemy".
