DEVELOPMENT IN MINING.
"I have always said, and I am now
stronger than ever. In the belief, that
Grants Pass -will some day be the
center of the greatest mining devel
opment in the United States,',' said
Thoa. S. Barley, receiver for the Al
meda Mining company, Wednesday.
Mr. Barley had. last returned from
lledford, where he had been on busi
ness before Judge Calkins relating
to the closing up of the receivership.
The Aimed has recently been , re
organized by the eastern stockhold
ers, and ample funds are being put
Into it to assure Its operation upon
an extensive scale. All the. claims
gainst it are being liquidated, and
,the receivership Is being closed up,
final hearing to be had on March 15.
Nat P. Ellis, representing the east
am stockholders, recently arrived
from Waverly. Iowa, and has since
been active In relieving the property
of Us burden of litigation. Mr. Bar
ley announces that Mr. Ellis la soon
to come to Grants Pass, when the
Almeda, freed from Its financial and
legal embarrassments, will ibe oper
ated upon a scale that its value will
Mr. Barley is especially optimistic,
not only for the future of the Al
meda, but also for the entire Grants
Pass district, as Is evidenced by his
prophecy that it was destined to lead
all the United States In mining in
the near future! While Mr. Burley
is retiring from the receivership of
the Almeda, he is not surrendering
his interests in Josephine county min
In view of the renewed Interest in
mining, and especially of the in
creased amounts of copper ore to be
taken from the ground here the pre
sent season, the Courier has arranged
to receive daily quotations upon cop
per in the markets. These quotations
are received by wire just after noon
each day, and will be found in the
market report published in the even
ing edition of the paper. The price
of this metal Is mounting upward
most rapidly, being now quoted at
28 cents per pound, more than
double the price of a couple years
ago. The average price of copper
during all of 1915 was 17.3 cents a
pound, according to a report of the
United States geological survey.
WELCOME THE ENDEAVORERS,
Friday the delegates from the
Christian Endeavor societies of the
state will gather in Grants Pass in
annual convention. The metropolis
of the Rogue welcomes this band of
the representative citizens of Ore
gon, and feels especially honored in
being permitted to act as host for
a body of people whose work Is the
noble work for humanity's better
ment. Every possible courtesy should
be extended these gueBts of the city,
and their visit should be made a
bright spot in their memory, as it
surely will be in the memory of
Grants Pass. The program for the
three-days session of the convention
is published elsewhere in the Courier
