GRANTS PASS. JOSEPHINE COUNTY, OREGON, THURSDAY, APRII, ir, 1901.
Rogtie River valley is full of Oil.
Natural Gas, Artesian water and
other valuable minerals.
Nature's storehouse is bulging
out with wealth and only needs the
magic hand ot man to unlock and
reveal the hidden wealth stored up
for the use of the Twentieth Cen
Our aiid lands will produce won
ders 11 we once can procure Arte
sian water to supply abundance of
water with whicq to irrigate.
Oil and Natural Gas aie the
greatest economical fuel of this
generation. Shall we let it be dor
mant here in Rogue River valley,
while other sections of the country
are using nature's storehouses?
Oregon cannot be beaten any
where in the world, for natural Gas,
Oil or Artesian water. Rogue River
valley is truly the Italy of America.
Here we have the finest climate, the
best apples, the largest peaches
and the prettiest girls.
Shall the people of Grants Pass
forever continue to drink the slime
and slush and sewage that pours
into Rogue river while we can have
the best of Artesian mountain water
by the very simple process of dril
ling a few hundred feet?
What a beautiful city Grants
Pass would be if there were a stream
of ' pure Artesian water flowing
along each side of her streets.
It is thp intention of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oil & Mining Co. to
soon begin active operation of dril
ling a number ot v e'.ls to the depth
of 1000 feet to ascertain the pres
ence of Natural .Gas, Oil, Artesian
water and other valuable minerals.
They are now bonding land hi
and around Grants Pass. Within
the next six montli3 they will be
drilling on some of the property
they have bonded for that purpose.
They intend if it is possible, to
supply the city with plenty of pure
Artesian water before the coming
The Oregon Natural Gas. Oil
& Mining -Co requests nil farmers
and property holders to give them
the privilege of drilling one or more
wells on their property. They
wjll ' give a percentage of the
output of ihe wells to pa 1 ties
granting the privilege.
In order to get Ihe people of
Grants Pass and Josephine county
interested in Natural Gas, Oil, and
Artesian water they will give all of
them a chance to subscribe for a
few shares of the capital stock of
the company on very liberal terms.
Suppose you take a few shares of
the capital stock of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oil & Mining Co. of
the par. value of $1 per shnre.
Yon pay 10 per cent, down, 40 per
cent, when the machinery is set up
and is ready to begin operation and
the remaining 50 per eeut. when
they strike a flow oi natural gas,
oil or artesian watel or have drilled
to the depth of 1000 feet. If they
strike oil, natural gas or artesian
water you have the option of tak
ing ten times as many shares asyou
subscribe for. They will pay you
back all the money received from
you if they f lil to drill a well as
You are invited to thoroughly
investigate their proposition. You
have nothing to lose but every
thing to" gain. If you are a cap
italist it is a safe investment. If
you are a farmer or property holder
it will pay you to invest as it will
enhance the value of your place a
hundred fold more than you invest
if they should find cither oil, gas
or water near your property. If
you are a working man it will pay
you to take shares as this will open
up a vast and a new work for you.
. The merchants and business men
should invest in shares in order to
start this enterprise. Professional
men, in fact all classes of people,
should take a few shares in this
vast and new enterprise and it will
be a help to all iu Grants Pass and
Josephine county. If you cannot
tak; 100 shares you can tak" 50 or
ten shares. Remember every dollar
will be returned to you if the com
pany fails to drill a well as agreed
upon. The stocks are non-assessable
and fully paid up as they are
used. The by-laws of the com
pany do not allow a debt to ex
ceed 1 per cent of the capital.
Scott Griffin of Grants Pass, Ore-
gon, is a stockholder, a director
and the secretary of The Natural
Gas, Oil & Mining Co, who will
take leases on lands and subscrip
tion for stocks and will give any
information regarding the company.
The closer you investigate the
more you will help the company by
taking stock and leasing your prop
erty for the purpose of drilling one
or more wells thereupon as you
have nothing to lose but all togain.

The regular meeting of Ihe city coun
cil was heM on Thursday evening, the
mayor and all the council being present.
A petition sinned very generally by
the business men ot Front street was
presented, asking that the obnoxious
mud and tilth be removed from that
street. The justice of the petition was
recognised by the council unanimously
and all recognized that the street should
be cleaned. Street Commissioner Pat
rick expained that he had just put a
sharp knife on the grader (or the purpose
of grading Pine street. He was in
structed to clean up Front street as soon
as the condition of the ground would

An ordinance regulating city elections
was read the requisite number of times
and was passed. This ordinance is very
long, consuming 10 type-written sheets
and tsxed the councils' patience lo the
point of heroism, hut It was absolutely
necessary to get through with it In view
of the approching election. In accord

Pullman Ordinary Sleepers.
The tourist, travel between the F.ast
and the Pacific Coast has reached
enormous proportions in the last lew
years, ami calls (or a special class ol
equipment. To meet this demand the
Pullman Company has issued from its
shops what it technically calls the
"Pullman Ordinary Hleeer," These
cars appear similar to the regular
sleepers, being huilt on the same pUn,
but not fnniiehed with the same ele
gance. They are equipped with mat
tresses, blankets, sheets, pillows, pillow
cases, towels, combs, brushes, etc., re
quiring nothing of the kind to be lur
nished by the passenger. Each car has
a stove for making tea and colfee anil
Joir.g "light housokeeping" and each
section can be fi led with an adjustable
table, A uniformed porter accompanies
each car, his business being to make up
bertha, keep the car clean, and look
after the wants and comforts of the
passengers. In each of the trains which
are dispatched daily from Poriland by
he O. It A N. Co. is to b found one of
these "Pullman Ordinary Sleepers."
The car attached to the '' Chicago-Poru
land Special" goes through to Chicago
without change, and the one in the
"Atlantic Kipress" rum to Kansas City
without change. Passengers in this car
for Chicago change to a similar car at
Much of the Grst-clasB travel is being
carried in these cars, the rates being
lower, and the service nearly equal to
that in the palace sleepers.
