A rumor was current today that
a matter of 550,000 price Increase
lias prevented, temporarily nt leant,
the sale of the Lucky Hoy mine,
owned by L. Zimmerman and J. J.
Sharkey, of tills city. George W.
Lloyd, of the Crystal Consolidated,
had negotiated, it was said, for the
mine nt $100,010, but when he
came to close- the deal, Mr. .Ini
mnrman hail added another 550,000
to the price
Professor Webber mid Mr. Lloyd
went to tilt Lucky Hoy in January
mid innile complete inspection of
the property. A letter front I'ro
fessor Webber whs said to give de
tails of the filling through of the
deal, although negotiations are not
believed t be olf. Mr. Shatkcy
said today:
"I do not know anything about
It, and it is all Greek to me. There
Is 110 until in the repot t, as the
property is not on the m.iikct."
There aie a umber of mining
men in the city who know tlut Mr.
Lloyd and 1'iofessor Webber both
visited the mine and .secured con
sent to handle the same, and for
that purpose went Hist.

from Washington. I). C , where he
now is.
Mi. Zimmerman said:
"Tbe 1 e is not a particle of truth
III the rumor regat'diug the sale. I
have tepcatedly said the Lucky
Hoy was not for sale, and have
never olfcrcd it to any one. Mr
Lloyd held 011 option on 100,000
shares of the treasury stock, which
he bud the right to dispose of.
Some days ago Mr. Lloyd wired
me that Alusworth, of New York,
would pay $400,000 net for the
property, and 1 answered I would
not consider that at any time. He
again wited, asking what price I
would put 011 it, and I answered
tlut the property was not for sale,
but for him to confine himself to
the contract. Since that time I
have not heard from him.
''It would be very singular pro
cedure lor me to sell a properly lor
the amount stated when the water
power alone Is worth more than
that, to say nothing of the mine.
We have spent over $200,000 in im
provements, and have $160,000 in
the treasury. Our mill will pro
duce at least $30,000 monthly m
soon as started, which will be very
"I have never put n price on the
mine, and I would be foolish to sell
with such 1111 income in sight, as
we have the ore blocked out, mid

Mr. Lloyd is very anxious to handle
the property, but we will not sell it.

As wc arc going entirely out ol business, we arc closing out our entire line
of merchandise at less than regular cost, for we must get our money out of
them, and by buying now you can get good bargains.
We still have a good stock of Clothing and Underwear to pick from, and
at prices that will suit all. Come and examine them. A' ways willing to
show them if you buy or not.
We arc trvinv to close out as soon as posible therefore selling our entire
line much cheaper than could be bought in any of the larger cities, and just as
good goods as could be got of any merchant in the northwest.

1 Superintendent C. C. Mathews of
the Oregon Securities Company, nc
coinpauicd by Mrs. Mathews ami
their little daughter, arrived in the
city Tuesday morning from the
liust, via San Francisco.
Mr. Mathews reports a growing
interest throughout the Hast in
miuiug.affair.s, and that people arc
learning that Oregon is a mining
slite, as well as of other resources.
He thinks that during the summer
a large number of jicoplc will visit
this Western coast and see for them
selves the opportunities oflered.
, He also informed the Nugget that
1 the affairs ot the Oregon Securities
Company are in splendid shape.
lie reports having had the!
pleasure ol meeting with I'. J. Hard
I mid Geo. W. Lloyd in Ilostou and
says both arc working for the in
terests of tluir respective companies
as well as the whole district. j
Since his arrival, he has been
very busy conferring with his
assistants and arranging for more
active operations to be inaugnrnted
as fast as the weather anil other
conditions will permit.
The unparalleled prosperity of
the mining industry at the present
time has cntiHed widespread public
attention. Fortunes are to be ob
tained by following mining and by
investing in mining stocks, and the
business men of today arc realizing
this tact and profiting by it as in
no other period ol our history.
There is an clement of hazard in
every business, but not as great a
risk in mining as has been im
agined in the past. Mining has
been reduced to a business. Im
proved machinery, scientific knowl
edge and business management
places mining 011 as safe a plane of
operation as that of any business
requiring nil of these elements.
Millionaires and multi-millionaires
are made in the marvelous business
of mining. Where a company ex
ercises great care in the selection of
its pioperties, expends sufficient
money intelligently and well, every
stockeolder of that company will
be benefitted by rapid advancement
of his stock and by rich returns
from the mines. --National Hanker.

silver mines ol Mexico, in certain
parts of that country. The ore was
curried out of the mines on . the
