Tho great power plant of the Ore

into operation in the Champion Ba-
siu mining district, Tuesday night,
uud for the fiist time in the history
of this now famous miuiug camp,
the darkness of this rugged moun
tain fastness was dispelled by the
brilliant illumination of the electric
light. With this great plant once
iu successful operation, tbe wheels
of raiuing industry will begin to
whirl through this company’s large
and valuable group of mines; the 30-
stump mill will begin pulverizing the
rich ore, the Layner drills will go
down on the well defined ledges,
the electric car and aerial trams will
convey ore frem tbe tunnels to the
mill and old Bohemia will begin to
yield up her fabulous wealth, so
long sought, iu abundance. This
activity ou the part of the Oregon
Securities Company will inspire the
scores of other companies to hasten
the installation of power plants and
tbe operation of their rich mine
holdings and Bohemia will soon be
