Mr. P. A. Coale who has been
living here for several months
recently received letters from a
niece, Mrs. Una H. James of 840
Glen Ave, North Almeda Park,
Portland, whose husband has
charge of the dried and cured
meat department of the Union
Meat Co., Portland, and Mrs.
J:.mes' brother, James I. Hunt
er of South St. Joseph, Mo., sec
retary of the Missouri Live Stock
Commission Co. These are Mr.
Cole's only living relatives and
he had not known or heard from
them for over twenty years.
Mr. Coale is a man of wide ex
perience and well versed in min
ing and stock exchange and has
traversed considerable territory, '
having spent twenty years in
the gold fields of Alaska, during
which time he possessed thous
ands of dollars one day to per
haps lose it the next. He has
made and lost in the mines prob
ably $200,000. At one time in'
Wyoming he was an extensive
livestock 'holder, and in a few
days lost 2000 head of cattle.
With impared health Mr. Coale
arrived in Maupin and owing to
the envigorating climate, has re
cuperated. Mrs. James is expected to be
in Maupin in a short time for a
visit with her uncle and Mr.
Hunter will probably make a
trip west this summer and will
also visit Mr. Coale.

Oil A Certainty
The following letter of April
28 relative to the Beavii-May oil
well was received by J. F. Emer
son from W. O.Hastings, the oil
expert, who has been doing work
for the goverment.
This well is located three or
four miles from Dufur and from
reports by all the oil men who
have visited the property this
will undoubtedly develop into a
large flowing well in the very
very near future.
