would be no easy taik for the powers.

stand firm in the maintenance of th

A. Powell, a Portland engineer, re
turned Thursday Ironr Minidoka, Idaho,
where ho superintended the erection ol
a gold-saving dredge (or the Yale Dredge
Company. This company has been
dredging the bar ol Hnake river in the
neighborhood ol Minidoka for the past
Ave vears, and ha succeeded so well
that it decided to put in a larger p'ant In
addition to tho old one, ' which wa
worked on the suction principle, the
gold-bearing (and and gravel being
drawn up to a system ol sluire-boxes on
board the dredge,
Mr. Powell says th gold In the bar of
Snake river i very fine and light, and
is known a "flour gold" by miner. ' It
doe not link to the bed of the river, but
settles In the gravel within a few feet of
th surface, and o It extreme lightness
make it bard to aave. A system ol bur
laps connected with the sluices, how
ever, baa proven (uccessful, and ground
that pat ten cent to th cubic yard can
be profitably worked, no gold being left
la the tailings. The dredge he has Just
set up and built in Portland al a cost ol
$15,000, and it bucknta bring up grave
and gold from a depth of 30 feat below
lbs surface of the water. It capacity I
2000 yards per day, and a crew of 10
men keep It In constant operation.
The old suction dredge will also b
operated day and night, about .11) tr.ilo
below the new one, a a bar ha been
found wliere pay gravel exist near the
top. Dredging can be carried on
successfully lor nine month In a year,
he say, a the slaga ol water doe not
affect the working ol the machinery,
and Ihe depth ol the bucket can be
regu'atcd to suit (resbei or low-water
apell. The freeslng period liable to
occur In December, January and Fer
ruary would put a atop to th work (or a
few week at a lime.
The only other dredge at work on
Hnake River at present, be says, Is the
"Kanake," owned by th Uold field
of Oregon Company, torn diuUnca be
low, at what I known aa Hi Dig llend
ol the Hnake, oppotil Parmer station
on th Oregon Hhort Lin. He look
t lor an increase in the number ot the
plants, however, a there are, donbtles,
other bars on Bnaks River, between fta
headwater and Riparia, where good
prospects can be found.
The construction ol dredging plants
ha become quite an industry in Port
land, where a number have been built
within the past lew year. Borneo!
these have been sent to Southern Ore
gon jothor to Alaska, while the only
bucket dredge successfully worked on
the bar of Snake river have been built
in this city, .
A glance at the picture ol ooe ol theee
dredge will causa one lo think ol a
