The Oregon Securitif Co. in the
month of October and November,
they turned out 202 troy pounds of
gold, the fiiHt large shipment this
year. They have sjent many
thousands of dollars in develop
ment and coukt.uctiou work during
the year, and expect to continue to
turn out tue yellow metal each
month of tho wixiter.

The mill has run. a part of the
summer, but tho rntiiu part of tho

The No. Fairiew has had con

! Many of the mine hare had a
I good deal of work donn ou them
this summer, and many good
strikes have been made, that show
what tho camp will be able to do
when a smelter is near enough for
economical handling of the ores.
There have been several slight ac
cidents, one or two quite serious,
1 but no great ones, for whieh the
miners are all thankful.
Ore stealing has been unknown
in camp until this year, when three
men were arrested in the Securities
Co. Champion ruino, aud are now
uuder bonds for the spring term of
court .

A number of the mines are stat
ing that ther will be shipping ores
to outside smelters if no smelter is
erected close to Bohemia.
Several stamp mill will be run
ning turning out the precious metal.
Several concentrators will un
doubtedly be running, and many of
the tons of concentrates stored at
some of the mills will be whipped to
the smelters for treatment.
It is predicted, and that on good
authority, that before neit winter a
wmelter will be an addition to the
camps facilities, and that when that
comes tho camp will be "the camp"
of Oregon, if not of the West.
That next year will be a record
breaker, and that many new and
large improvements will be seen, is
a surety. Tie ore is there, we
know it, and we want the world to
know it, and see for themselves,
that they may be willing to assist
largely in getting it out.

Th CommerctnJ Club
At the Commercial Club meetiug
Monday night the club decided to
do nothing further towards secur
ing a piano for the present, as they
did not care to go in debt for it.
Mr. T. K. Campbell made one of
his speeches on his trip to the meet-,
ing of tho Willamette Valley De
velopment League at Woodburn,
and said that the absence of Cottage
Grove delegates was much noticed.
He says ho feels sure that the club
could obtain the March meeting
here, if it so desired, by a little
working, on the part cf of tho dele
gates to be sent to the Albany meet
ing, and he urged that only dele
gates be appointed, who could and
would go to the meeting. He said
he heard many things about the
valley that he nerer know before,
and that many able addresses were
made. A very able paper was read
on the extention of the Harriman
system in Oregon, showing much
better tho progress and work to be
built to complete their present
plans, than any published report
he had seen.
Quite a little discussion was en
tered Into about having the March
meeting. Some thought the June
meeting would be better, and it
was finally let lie on the table for a
