Some weeks since L I, Slaveu
who has been familiar with the Ho
hernia Mining District for years
and has made several sales of prop
erties there went up for the purpose
of prosi)cctlng. While examining
some ground alKiit one and a half I
miles west of the Ridge hotel he !
dlscoveivd a ledge which when !
fully uncovered proved to be eight 1
feel iu width, 11 portion of which 1
was well oxidized, while the rest of j
the vein curried quite a percentage :
iu sulphides. Mr Slaveu brought
u sample to the city which certainly ;
shows well, lie left two men open
ing the ledge and went back 1
Wednesday with n supply of pro-1
visions and will continue work,
uH)ii the property iu order to1
ascertain the value of his find.

I. II. Bingham makes his first
Campaign speech. Only Can
didatcs for Representatives
A joint discussion between the
republican and democratic candi
dates for representatives to the leg
islature nominated by the republi
can and democratic parties was
held in the opera house iu this city
on Wednesday afternoon.
Hon Ivan McQueen was agreed
upon as chairman and A B Atkins
was chosen time keeper. Each
speaker was allowed 30 minutes to
tell why he should be chosen the
representative of the ixople. Hon
I N Kdwards opened the debate.
He said in part: There are 110 well
defined issues iu our campaign
am a republican anu will give my
reasons for being one. Any state
ment made is worth only what may
be behind it. I believe republican
ism is and has proven to be better
for thc country than the democratic
policy. Seven years ago the demo
crats under Cleveland had full
swing and that administration bad
a very injurious effect upon the
whole country. Every laboring
man is interested iu the affairs of
his cou try, it makes a difference
whether times are good or bad,
whether wages arejocentsor $1.50
per day. Under democratic rule
the cry is tariff for revenue only.
What would we think of a man
who failed to make provisions for
the future. It was estimated that
during Cleveland's term at least
1000,000 men were thrown out of
employment. Then there were ten
men for every job now there are
two jobs for every man. Mr Ed
wards took up the question of the
export trade showing the great in
crease since the republicans re
turned to power. $33.00 per sec
ond, said he, is on its way to the
United States, tint is what is mak
ing Uncle Sam rich. When time
was called Clark Edmundsou,
democratic candidate, took the
floor. He stated that in the begin
ning of the campaign it was agreed
the candidates would confine their
arguments to state and county is
sues, but my republican friends
wander away to national affairs
We have in this state serious issues
to discuss. Our laws should be so
Iramed that no one would be al
lowed to trespass upon another.
Equal rights and no special privi
leges to any.
Mr Edmuudson attacked Mr
Edwards upon his record in the
former legislature on his vote for
the log stream and forest fire bills,
also scored Senator Booth, was in
faror of a flat salary law also a
maximum freight law.
Following this speaker came I H
Bingham who thus far has not been,
owing to the serious illness of his
wife, able to take part m tne cam
paign. If there has been any
doubt in the minds of anyone as to
his fitness to represent the people
that doubt was certainly removed
by his speech upon this occasion.
Mr Bingham began by saying:
This is n new business to me and I
shall only attempt to make a plain
business talk, The principal thing
I want nt this time is to be elected
then I can follow that up with work
at the proper time. All the demo
crats have done or can do is to find
fault with the work accomplished
by 'the republicans. The vicious
loE bill and fire bill is n very seri
ous affair with them. The man
who can get his logs floated down
stream for 25 cents per 1000 feet
would be a lucky man. Mr Bing
ham took up the question of the
corporation tax law and explained
why mining corporations should
not be taxed, also advocated good
roads, would do all within his
power to bring about a maximum
freight law. He closed bis con
vincing speech with the advice to
vote the straight republican ticket
nnd be happy.
G W Griffin, republican candi
date for representative had given
Mr Bingham his time and had but.
a lew minutes to speak. He took
occasion to deny the statement that
Judge Ctirisman if elected would
lock up the rock crusher, that the
statement was malicious and false,
was just a plain business man, if
elected would do his whole duty by
J D Barnes, democratic iiuininee,
stated it was 'his first visit here.
He also complained that the repub
lican speakers would not confine
themselves to local issues but would
persist in bringing iu national af
fairs, dwelt nt considerable length
on the subject of good roads and
had planned a bill 011 the subject to
introduce if he should be elected.
Mr Edwards closed the debate
with a vigorous 15 minute speech
and ably answered the criticisms
and arguments made by the demo
cratic speakers, ,
