GRANTS PASS. JOSEPHINE COtfNTY, OREGON, THURSDAY, APRIL ss, 1901.
Rogue 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 of man to unlock and
reveal the hidden wealth stored up
for the use of the Twentieth Cen
tury. Our arid lands will produce won
ders if we once can procure Arte
sian water to supply abundance of
water with which 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. R'gue 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 the intention of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oif & Mining Co. to
soon begin active operation of dril
ling a number ol v Is 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 in
and around Grants Pass. Within
the next six months 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 coining
The Oregon Natural Gas, Oil
& Mining Co requests 1 11 farmers
and property holders to give them
the privilege of drilling one or more
wells on their property. They
will give a percentage of the
output of ihe wells to pa 1 ties
granting the privilege.
In order to get the people of
Grants Pass and Josephine county
interested in Natural Gas, Oil, and
Artesian water they will give all of
them a chance to stiWrilie 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 share.
You 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 of natural gas,
oil or artesian watei 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 fail 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 ihan you inveM
if they should find either oil, gas
or water near yonr property. II j
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 slnres in thts
vast and new enterprise and it will
be a help to all in Grants Pass and
Josephine county. If you cannot
take too 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-
con, is a stockholder, a director
and the secretary of The Natural
Gas, Oil & Mining Co , who will
take leases on lands and subcrip
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 Grilling one
or more wells thereupon as you
have nothing to lose but all to gain

CITV COUNCIL MEETING.
Extended Session and Important
Business. Nine Ordinances
The regular session of the city coun
cil was held on Thursday evening, with
the mayor and all the council present
except N. E. Mclirew
A petit iou was presented from the
Pacific Pine Needle Co.. by D. A. Cords,
president, asking that the extension to
U. street adjacent to Ihe factory be
vacated in their favor. The street ex
tends immediately up to Ihe factory and
the company owns the land on both
sides. Some opposition was manifested
on the part of members of the council,
who considered that it might be de
suable at some future time to open the
street through this property and slso
that it was unwise to establish such
precedent in matters of this character.
On the- question being put, only four
members voted, resulting in a tie, the
mayor casting the deciding vote in favor
of vacatiug the street. Councilman
Felsch then asked that the roll be
called, which was refused on the ground
that the matter was decided. On this
decisiou being given, Fetsch arose and
walked out of the council rooms in some
A petition was preserited from J. W.

use of a portion of Sixth and II street!

might be necessary.
A communication from A. U Long of
Portland, regaiding chemical engines,
was read and tiled for future considera
tion. The health committee submitted a re
port recommending the extension of lat
erals to allow certain property holders
to connect with the sewer. The report
was accepted and the city attorney in
strutted to draw an ordinance therefor.
The street committee reorted the
sidewalk on Fast A street to be in a bad
condition und recommended that repairs

The ordinance regulating licenses,
which had been held over from Thurs
day's meeting was pnt upon its final
passage. It was moved to amend the
ordinance by striking out Ihe portion
relating tu the Sunday closing of billiard
balls and the ordinance was so amended
and passed. Hood toting "no" on both
the amendment and ordinance.
An ordinance to extend certain sewer
laterals and fixing the aireasinents on
ihe property atfecwd was read tbrt
limes and passed.
The saloon bond of Oo. E. Good was
presented and found correct. The first
motion to accept the bond and grant the
license failed, Hood Toting adversely.
The ordinance passed on Thursday eve
ning required a two thirds majority of
the council to grant a saloon license
which, In the present number ot the
council, requires six votes. Smith be
ing permanently absent and Rehkopf
not present, i here were only six mem
bers in ses.-ion so that Hood's position
was sufficient to kill all proceedings in
that line for the time. The ordinance
requiring two thirds majority was
voted for by some of the members under
the mistaken idea that it was required
by the charter, but on Investigation it
was found that a majority is all the
charter requires. In view of this fact, it
was moved to draft an ordinance amend
ing that portion of the former ordinance
that relates to the majority required.
This was done and the new ordinance
was drafted, read the requisite number
of times and wan passed. Hood's
acquiescence was necessary to the plac
ing of the ordinance on its final passage
in the same meeting that it was pre-
seledaud it w as given, with the explana
tion that his.' position was due to prin
ciple and to no personal feeling or desire
to hold up any proceedings of the coun
cil. The ordinance was passed and the
license granted, Hood voting "no" on
both measures. .
Upon tlie aesurance of the city at
torney that the work of compiling the
ordinance would be sufficiently ad
vanced for estimates on printing, he was
instructed to procure such estimates for
presentation at Ihe next regular meeting.

ProbBkble Favorable Results of
Strike at the Mountain -Lion.
The Ashland correspondent of the
Oregonian writes as follows in Sunday's
issue concerning the more prominent
quarii properties of Williams creek and
tbe Applegate in this countiy, all ol
which are near Grants Pass which is
their railroad and supply point:
"The recent rich strike in the moun.
taiu Lion, in the Missouri, Flat district,
will favorably influence the develop
ment of other properties in the Williams
creek district. There bas been consider
able work done on tbe Mountain Lion.
There is an 800-foot tunnel and a 100
foot shaft. In the extension of the tun
nel to tap an ore shoot worked above
another ore body was encountered that
exhibits some rich ore. The rock shows
much free gold and the vein is said to be
about two feet wide. The old vein
which the tunnel was being driven to
tap averages from 18 inches to four and
one-half feet wide, and has furnished
ore giving assay values of $40 per ton.
The Exchequer, tbe ore from which is
much like that of the Mountain Llou in
apptarance, and in the same locality, is
12 miles south of Grants Pass. It is
uuder bond to Montana company from
Dr. Flanagan. It shows a large vein
formation, tbe average width between
walla being about lis feet, with about
two feet nf quarts nr ore, the remainder
being filling matter. It strikes north
west, and shows little dip. There is a
tunnel 150 feet long connecting with a
shaft at a depth of 60 feet. The work'
ings are therefore limited as vet but the
mine makes a good showing, yielding
ore that goes $50 per ton, and sometimes
it has run as high as I00 per ton.
The Golconda, near by, is owned by
the Golconda Mining Company, of
which A. 0. Taylor Is president. .This
is a promising property. There is
shaft down 100 feet, and drifting la be
ing done both ways. This vein Is also
nearly vertical and is two and one-half
feet to four feet wide. Tbe ore is of
good grade; the lowest assay obtained
being $1.50, and tbe highest $80 per ton.
gold. Many teats have been made and
the average value is about $20 per ton,
of which $10 is free gold, the remaining
values being in tbe sulphides. Thern is
an arrastre on the property and a five-
stamp mill will soon Deinstalled.
The Rising Star is an important and
valuable propery in the Williams creek
country. It is owned and operated by
the Champion Gold Mining Company.
The vein strikes northeast and south'
west and dipt 15 to 20 degrees. This is
a fissure vein in diorite, the walls being
mostly diorite, slate coming in occasion'
ally. The development consists of tun
nels and s halls first tunnel 100 feet,
second tunnel about the same, third
tunnel 125 feet, fourth tunnel about 300
feet, and the fifth tuntiel, which Is now
the main working tunnel, Is in about
450 feet. The Hfth tunnel is connected
with the third and second by upraises
The third tunnel taps the ledge at 200
feet depth and the fourth 100 feet lower.
The fifth tunnel runs Icto about 100 feet
of ore, Tlie last shoot is 000 fuel from
where it would Issue normally ou the
surface. From the fourth tunnel there
is a rhalt down about 1)5 feet. The
mine has a well-equipped mill. Ar
rangoments have been made (or the
addition o(;llve new stamps, making a
10atamp mill. Tbe mill is about a mile
from the mine. It is provided with two
union concentrators and one Dodd slime
table. The average value of the ore
milled is $20 per ton, of which one-hall
amalgamates. The mine, however.
yields some rich ore assaying $00 to $100
per ton, but the tree gold values do not
usually run high. Although these prop
ertiis aie being developed they together
with most of the others in the Williams
creek country, will receive something ol
a boom from the lich Mountain Lion

Sir Thomas I.ipton, K. C. T. ()., has
writton especially for The Saturday Rve
ning Post, of May 11, an article on "Tbe
Sports that Make the Man." He places
yachting high on the list, and gives
tome interesting aneclotes of his own
career as an amateur yachtsman.
Sir Thomas is hopeful, if not confident
of "lifting" the America's Cup next
autumn. He says, however, that if it
were a certainty he would not cross the
