"Three barrels, each filled with gold
dust, have I got concealed at Silverton,"
quoth Frank Wilson, colored, to
Municipal Judge Cameron.
While appearing quite calm and sensi
ble in his demeanor, the police believe
the man is somewhat demented, judg
ing by his conversation. He was
arrested on the complaint of a couple of
women in the North End, who said that
he was following the.u , and is charged
with roaming the streets after hours.
"I'veitottobe in Salem Thursday,"
declared Wilson to the Judge, "fori
have an appointment with the Governor
on that date. I've advertised the ap
pointment in the Silvertou Appeal."
"What diil you want to do that for?"
"Why, don't you know that when a
person wants to meet the governor he
must advertise the meeting in order to
give the governor time to receive him?
1 have a mine in Josephine county, and
1 have studied minerals until I've coin-
piled a quantity of statistics. 1 wiah to
consult with the governor on the sub
ject. It will also be necessary for me
to appear before the house of parliament
on the same nutter, as I am a British
subject, having been born in Nova
When the officer ariested Wilson he
had to draw his club. The colored man
thereupon offered to do battle with the
policeman if the latter would put up
money on the flVht. This proposition
the guard:an of the peace declined,
gently but firmly, while he escorted
his prisoner to the station, and heard
Wilson iterate and reiterate that "there
never was a policeman that could get
'he best o( him in a fight." Telegram

on complaint of the citizens ot the
locality and was examined for insanity
before the county judge but was re
leased. He has quite a bright and
intelligent appearance, but grows some

Of Interest to Miner.
The following circular has been issue.
to the miners of Josephine county by
the raining and commercial club of
Grants Past, with the object of bring
ing our mineral resources more rapidly
to the front :
The Mining and Conime'cial Club of
Grunts Vms in addition to making arrange
menu for advertising' the mineral re
source!1!, also deMre to be of some material
assistance to the mine-owner, therefore the
Mining Committee, composed of Messrs.
J 1. Fry, 11. C. Perkins, P. 11. Harth,
W. T. Cope and G K. How land, has been
empowered to otler its services in certain
lines, which this letter is intended to make
plain to you.
If you own a quartz mine which ban a
tunnel in 100 feet, or a shaft down fifty
feet and are detdrous of placing the mine
on the market in order to further develop
it, there are two ways of doing so; namely,
sell an interest outriK.it, or else issue stock
and sell the stock on the stock board.
If you desire to sell stock, this Mining
Committee will furnish a written recom
mendation with an expert report, and this
will tend to strengthen the conudence of
mining investors in your mine.
The other proposition, which the Mining
Committee will attempt to handle, w ill be
where you have a promiMng, undeveloped
prospect, in quarts or placer, and want
some money to develop it, to an amount
not exceeding $KM), and you agree to give
a certain interest In the mine for the ex
penditure of a certain sum ot money, thia
committee will interest its friends to fur-nii-h
the money, and take a deed in escrow
to secure sm h advance. When the amount
has been expended, the deeds puss and the
work of the committee ceases.
The portion of the Constitution and Hy
Laws of the Mining and Commerciul Clult,
delining the duties of the Mining Com
mittee, reads as follows:
"lhe Mining Committee, consisting of
five members, xhail meet at the call of its
chairman at any time and place selected.
1 hree memters shall constitute a quorum
but nil the members shall be notified of
each meetingby the secretary.
"It shall be the duty of the Mining
Committee to pans upon the report of the
secretury regarding any mines, or other
enterprise, w hich may desire to Incorpor
ate and place stock on the market for sale.
This committee shall instruct the secretary
to visit such property desiring to incorpor
ate, or muy accompany the secretary, and
the expenses of such visit shall le paid by
the owner of the mine or property, but the
Club shull pay the per diem expense. The
secretary, or committee and secretary,
shall exumine the property and muke a
written report, covering the following
points: 1. Kind of property. 2. Locu
tion. 3. Owner's name and potttoitlce ad
dress. 4. Condition of title, A. A de
tails connected with property in order to
show prospect for t becoming a profitable
investment. 6. l'.ring sumples of pro
duct of property for plat ing on exhibition.
"The Mining Committee shull act on
said report, and by a majority vote decide
whether it would be advantageous to the
interests of Josephine county to recom
mend the listing of such property. If the
report is favorable then an expert shull be
engaged at the expense, and with the con
sent of the owner of the mine or property,
who si mil make a written report detailing
the best plan to develop the property and
probable cost of such development. The
two reports shull be sent to any mining
exchange desired by the owner, with a
recommendation of the committee that the
property be listed. All the proceedings of
the Mining Committee relative to testing
mines or other property shall be secret,
and not until the property is accepted by
the mining exchange w here sent shall said
committee make known its report. The
owner of the property is not bound in any
manner to secrecy,
"In case any person may have a quart,
plat er or other prospect wtiich they desire
developed, said committe may secure a full
report on same, with an estimate on the
amount of money, which Is required to
develop it, so that it muy show what Its
value muy be (but In no case shall such
development cost to exceed $louO.)
"such committee id mil then enter into a
contract, using one of its members as a
trustee, wherein, upon the expenditure of
said $MfOO, or less, secured from individuals
and not from the club, u certain interest in
such prospects shull le secured for said
"leeds to the property shall te placed in
escrow, und when suid $loon, or less, has
been expended by said committee on the
mine the deeds hull be delivered to the
parties in interest.
"The Mining Committee has authority
to have a prospectus of such property
printed and sent by the secretary to ea h
mcmlier of the Club, show ing ju-d w hat the
terms of the investment are and what an
intertfpt will rost.'

THERE were ructions in the eonnt-ing-houae
of Tatteraon A Dew

received a more or less well-dVaerved
"wiping," and there waa a general
feeling of worse to follow.
At last a small ufttoe boy entered
the clerk'a office and aiud ill a ahrill
"Mr. Rod bolt is to go to the gov
ernor at once."
There was a mischlevoua grin on the
young gentleman's face, aa if he knew
what waa coming, and1 moat of the
others, doilhted at their own escape,
chuckled, like many people do when
some one else is In trouble.
Joe Kedbolt turned Just a shade
paler when his name waa called out,

Young Mr. Dcwhurst, who had man
aged the business since the death of
his father, gave him a furtive look aa
he entered, and then turned hurriedly
to a bundle of correspondence by hia
side and selected a letter with an air
of malicious satisfaction. .
The two men formed an odd con
trast. They were of about the mine
age 28 or perhaps 30 but it re
quired no great insight to perceive

One could Imagine Hedliolt being
foolish, hut never cowanUy; one
could iiiiairinc Mr. Dewhurst being

The Interview was unusual; there
seemed to be something In the back
ground about which neither man
spoke. Mr. Dewhur.U w-aa clearly
muster of the situation, and resolved
to use his power; his managing clerk
looked self-reliant, but perfectly re
spectful and polite.
The hall wits opened by Mr. Dew
hurst unfolding a ciinttinkernus com
plaint from mi unimportant customer.
It was the merest tritle, and quite un
worthy of the occasion. Nevertheless,
Joe Ucdhnlt was by no means sur
prised at the tone adopted. For some
lime past the smallest opportunities
hud been seized for fault-finding, and
he knew by Instinct that the climax
had been reached.
"How do you account for this blun
der?" said Mr. Dewnurat auspi
ciously. His clerk gave a simple, straightfor
ward explanation, which, to a reason
nhle num. would huve ueen sufficient.
Hut Mr. Dcwhurst was not in a rea

"You never mnke a mistake?" 1
"Not very often." '
"Who Is to bhime, then?"
There was a moment's silence, and
the two men looked into one anothtr'a
"You are, sir," said ltedtmlt, re
spectfully. "I acted under your In

worthy little tyrant his opportunity.
"You are more than half imperti

"1 give you my word 1 didn't Intend
to lie so," said Hcdbolt, with perfect
"i'erhups not, but I'm tired of it.
You forget your proper (Misitlon, ami
have crossed my will in several ways."
Mr. Hcdbolt colored rather pain
fully, ami his principal continued,
witfi a Htn.le of spiteful triumph:
"You undcrntniid what 1 allude to?"
The clerk bowed slightly.
"Then I think you hail better look
atiout for another situation.

and drew a small silver bell nearer to
"Oh, don't be frightened-!" said Joe,
with a smile of astonishment. "I'm
not going to thrash you! It wouldn't

Mr. Dewhurst tried to sneer, but
only looked mightily relieved.
"I want to tell you what I think of

grin. "Seeing that you've had the

With a mighty effort of self
restraint Joe pulled him .elf together,
and, resisting the Impulse to knock
him down, swung out of the room.
He had lost everything the girl he
loved and the meniss of earning his
living. He waa alone In the world,
with no prospect but that of com
mencing life again in some counting
nouse, mid then smlilenly he re
membered. Only two nights before
he had attended drill at the hrmk)Uar-
ters of his volunteer corps. The men
hnd been asked which of them wished
to Join the (". I. V. for the front. He
thought of the glow that had burnt
through his veins, how lie had longed
to oner himself, and had only been
prevented by hi feeling of oblige
tion to hia old friend's business. Now
he waa free!
That settled It. Old Knglnnd was in
need ot help from men such aa he.
He was aa sound as s bell In wind
and limb; he had done hia turn St
volunteering ana could shoot more
than a little.
Within hair an hour hi name was
entered aa one of those who were
ready for aervlce at the front, and he
was ordered to go before the doctor.
That gentleimin laughed at him.
"If we get 1.4U0 men aa fit as you
are," he said, "we shall do well!"
Having successfully passed all the
tests, ami been duly enrolled aa one
of the city of London Imperial vol
unteer corps, he felt slightly easier
in hi mind.
At lat the final moment came. He
had attended the service at Ht. 1'nul
and sung the national nut hem until,
he waa hoarse. He hnd been shipped
on the back by hundreda of warm-.
hearted but heavy-burdened, citizen.
He had even fought hia way success-:
fully through s mob of enthusiastic,
patriota all the way from Hunhlll
How to Nine Kims, where he was one
of the first to arrive.
There stood the train waiting to
take them to Southampton. There,
too, stood the long suffering band, and
every minute groups of breathless,
excited men in khaki, who had also
fought their way through the crowd,
rushed onto the platform.
Of course It was all over. There
waa nothing to be done but get into
the train and say good-by to old I,oii-
don for months perhaps forever.
Once more s gloomy sense of loneli
ness came upon him. Everybody else
had s chum or s relative to aee him
