Bohemia is inagnificiently tim
bered and dozens of sparkling
streams traverse its many canyons
which can be at a mimimum ex-
pense harnessed for generating elec
trical power.
The past two years have witnessed
great changes for the betterment of
conditions in Bohemia. Splendid
mountaiu roads have been built and
others have been surveyed and will
be constructed next season.
The Oregon Securities company
has now a most substantial wagon
road the entire leDgth of Champion
canyon; the Crystal Consolidated
has n model road to its holdings and
Manager Hard has " broad high-!
way for four miles down City can
yon to the Oregon-Colorado holdings
and a splendid pack trail from there

roads aud stage routes leading into
the district have been put in good
trim-and affcrd comparative!' easy
access to the district, and the ore
gou and Southeastern railroad now
constructed and operated from Cot-
Smith, assisted by a strong lobby of
mining men, to amend the lull so as
its taxation provision.

Between FSOO and 1810 the
world's production of silver was
about -1 to 1 in value, as compared
with the production of gold. When
in 1819 the new California and a
few years later the Australian gold
fiuda were made, the annual output
of gold so increased that the yellow
metal output was soon more than 3
to 1 in value, compare 1 .vith silver
output, and during this great change
in relative production the commer
cial rates remained comparatively
stable, due to the fact that the mints
of th6 world took the precious metals
aud mule thorn iuto curreacy.
