ople who thought well of the
Id prospects there. Mr. Awbery
lys the rock is exactly like the
fh gold quartz on the California

jnvinced there was gold in it.
Since the gold was discovered it
fa been ascertained that there is a
fjUity of limestone in the buttcs
q is probable that steps will be
irfcfy to demonstrate its commcr
fl value. The building pceds of

here will warrant efforts to get a

ALL LIKKWTCir LAND.
Applicants Take Columbia Southern
Tract and Will Improve Them.
Last Saturday was Laud Agent
Cook's busy day down on the Col
umbia Southern sogrcgatiou. He
disposed of 1300 acres of land to
seven men from Portland, Knlamn
and Kelso, all of whom will start
The party was composed of J. W.
Wharton, treasurer of the Kellogg
Transportation Company, Portland;
R. II. ltaylcy and S. S. Strain, of
Kelso, Wash,, and C. Peterson,
John White, Jens Hassulbcrg ami
Peter McKinuon, of Kalama, Wash.
They drove in from Shauiko by
way of Hcislcr's, Trail crossing and
Tctherow's bridge. When they
left Webfoot it was wet, very wet,
but when they reached the Colum
bia Southern camp they piled urn
brcllas, gum coats ami goloshes in
a heap and went forth to enjoy the
clear, warm weather and examine
the country. It did not take them
long to make selections.
All these investors will clear and
improve their holdings this season
uud Messrs Peterson, White and
Ilassalberg will settle upon their
laud. The others will not occupy
their lauds until a little later. All
were greatly pleased with the out
look here and their representations
are likely to bring other land seek
ers this way.
I H. Dayton, J. C. Ilurstpool
and Karl Kastnian have taken 340
acres of the Columbia Southern
lauds and O. W. Fickel has the
contract for grubbing and clearing
them of sagebrush, ,
George Ur'ostcrhous has just got
three acres cleared on his home
stead on the west sltfe of the river

as much at home as if he had been
there always. The company's
stone vault is about half done and
work is progressing on the adjoin
ing office building.
Yesterday noon a peculiar break
occurred near, the foot of the flume,
where the canal descends over u
rim of lava just above the waste
way. A little water had been run
ning through the flume to test the
ditch. At noon everything was
safe but at 1 o'clock the bottom
had droptcd out of the ditch just
!c!ow the lava and there was 110
telling how far down it hod gone,
probably many feet. Of course
when the bottom dropjicd the banks
caved in, leaving a large and ugly
chasm which may require 11 short
section of flume to repair. The
damage is not great.
