The coat of concentration de
pends very largely upon tho size of
mill and the fineness of crushing re
quired. For a r0-lon mill, coarse
crushing, the ore may bo concen
trated at about an aveage cost of J I
a ton; fine crushing, $l.5o A 100
ton mill, 7.r cents for coarse and fl
a ton for fine crushing.
About 75 men are employed at
the United Elkhora miuo, near Ha
lter City, and the concentrate pro
duction from the three Bryan mills
about 15 tons daily, all of which is

Ii. I. Field says that ho is breaking

are being extendod on the lOO-shaft
level rapidly as possible, and work
bas been resumed in tho big cross

With a steady output from tbe
Oregon Securities Company and a
number of other properties close to
the threshold of success Bohemia will
be rated among the proJucing dis
tricts of the state, more capital will
sotk investment there, more trans
poitation will be looked after and
iacilitias for the reduction of its ores
a ill closely follow.
It is strange but true and ex
tremely vivid to those that have
tried to accomplish somethiug, that
Bohemia with its sure promising
wealth has been long on its way.
There is nothing gained bv parad
ing hindrances and delays but all
could be hastened and better days
arc close ol baud, once 'going and
you can't stop it, nor will jou want
to etop it.
Mining builds up a state and
cities faster than any other industry,
makes more wealth and is the lar
gest consumer of supplies, takes ev
ery other industry along with it.
Bohemia with Cottage Grove as
the in-let city has more to attract a
rapid growth of mining people and
the necessary mining money than
any region of recent vears where the
crowds have rushed; with the dawn
of this an era of encouragement may
the best come to all.

By the lirst of the present month
tbe management of the Rogue River
Power, Mining & Smelting Com
pany expected to have tho machin
ery and furnace for the new plant,
which is erected at Savago Rapids,
near Grants Pass. It is tho hope
to blow the furnace in New Year's
day. and if there is no delay in the
delivery of tho parts local the man
agement believes that this end will
be accomplished without difficulty,
Tho electric machinery that was
recently delivered to the Champlin
dredge on Foots creek, near Gold
Hill, has already been placed and
consists of two 7o, two U5, two 20
10 horse power motors. Tho larger
motors are to actuate the digging
apparatus of tho big pump, while
the smaller ones will be used lor va
rious purposes around the plant.
Wiring connecting the dredge with
the main power line of the Condon
Water & Power Company's plant
has about been completed and the
dredge is expected to go into com
mission any day with new energy.
Capt. Mclntyre, who had charge
of transportation for the Takilma
Smelting Company, is taking his
teams, comprised of i2D mules, off
the road for the season. Early rains
make tho roads to Takilma quite
heavy and no effort will be made to
haul any considerable quantity un
til spring. Arraugeineuts were
completed by both the Taklima and
Waldo Smelting A Mining Com
panies for thorough exploration of
the copper group that is clustered
about the smelling plant during the
coming season and in the spring an
immense tonnage is expected to be
exposed for reduction.
The capacity of a revolving screen
will depend very largely upon how
the ore breaks. Ores which break
cubical, or nearly so, in shape, go
through a screen very fast, but ores
which break in specules or needle
shaped particles do not screen
nearly as fast as cubical breaking
ore. The following average may
meet the requirements of the engi
naer: Screen making twenty revo
lutions per minute, 30-mesh screen
and capacity 1,000 pounds per
twenty-four hours per square foot of
screen surface ; 20-mesh, capacity
1,2G0 pounds per square foot; 1G
mesh, 1,700 pounas; 12-mesh, 2,200
pounds; 8-mesh, 3000 pounds.

The hotel controversy is ended,
Mr. Graham has signed a bond to
