Zinc Find Sells Black Eagle
Mine Quickly for $100,000
Albany— That the Black Eagle Min­
ing company, o f Gates, had teen sold
to L. S. Barnes, o f Salem, Or., for
$100,000, became known here this
week.
Mr. Barnes happened to pass the
Black Eagle mine while on his way
from an inspection o f the Gold Creek
mine in which the owners were at­
tempting to interest him. Passing the
ore dump he noticed some formations
which indicated to him that they had
teen formed by fumes from zinc de­
posits.
He inspected the mine and
found a vein o f this formation in the
side o f the tunnel.
A bill o f sale was made out before
the reason for Mr. Barnes’ desire to
purchase the mine became known.
Work has been started on new shafts.
L. S. Barnes, the purchaser, is the
president o f the Capital Journal Pub­
lishing company, o f Salem, and was
formerly in charge o f all the iron
mines held by the Harriman interests.
He is recognized as one o f the fore­
most mining men o f the country.
As a result o f the sale the stock­
holders in the Silver K in g Mining
company, the Gold Creek Mining com­
pany, the Crown Mining company and
the Ogle Mountain Mining company
are much excited, as all these mines
are in the same district and might be
affected i f a real strike has teen made.
Prospectors are also much excited and
are staking out claims close by.
10,000 Acres Embraced in
Warm Springs Irrigation District
BRIG. GEN. ALBERT L. MILLS.
Vale— Malheur county presents a re­
sumption o f prosperity and a move­
ment toward sane and united action
which speaks well for the coming
years.
On May 19 the Warm Springs irriga­
tion district was organized and the di­
rectors are hastening toward the pre­
sentation o f a proposition and tend
issue to the land owners at an early
date.
June 14 the unanimous vote creating
the community improvement irrigation
district, embracning 10,000 acres of
the best land and most improved
farms in W illow R iver valley, shows
further the awakening spirit o f prog­
ress and a desire fo r unity so necessary
fo r community success.
The creation o f this district on W il­
low R iver brings once more into the
lim elight the great and wonderful ca­
pacity o f the Brogan and Jamieson
country for production o f land products
of any kind under climatic conditions
which have carried destruction to the
greater portion o f Eastern Oregon and
Southern Idaho.
