GRANTS PASS. JOSEPHINE COUNTY, OREGON, THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1901.
Rogue River valley is full of Oil,
Natural Gas, Artesian water and
other valuatile minerals.
Nature's storehouse is bulging
out with wealth and only needs the
magic hand oi man to unlock and
reveal the hidden wealth stored up
for the use of the Twentieth Cen
tury. Our arid lands will produce wpn
ders if we once can procure Arte
sian water to supply abundance of
water with which to irrigate.
Oil and Natural Gas ate 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
aud 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 th; intention of The Oregon
Natural Gas, OiKt Mining Co. to
soon begin active oneration of dril
ling a number ot Is to the depth
of 1000 feet to ascertain the pres
ence of Natural Gas, Oil, Artesian
water and oilier 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.
Thev intend if it is possible, to
supply the city with plenty of pure
Artesian water before the coming
The Oregon Natural Gis, Oil
& Mining Co requests .ill farmers
and property holders to give them
the privilege of drilling one or more
wells on their property. 1 hey

output of ihe wells to pa 1 ties
erantiu ' the privilege.
hi order to get the people ofj

cent, when the machinery is set up
and is ready to begin operation and
the remaining 50 per cent, when
they strike a flow ol natural gas,
oil or artesian watei or have drilled
to the depth of 1000 feet. If they

water you have tiie option of tak
ing ten times as many shares asyou

You are invited to thoroughly

up a vast and a new work for you.
The merchants and business men
should invest in shares in order to

vast and new enterprise and it will ;i
be a help to all in Grants Pass and i
Josephine county. If you cannot j
take 100 shares you can tak 50 or,
ten shares. Remember every dollar

puny fails to dri'.l a well as agreed ,
upon. The stocks are non-assess- j
able and fully paid up as they are'

TLe healthful progress of this city is
well evidenced by the quiet activity in
construction with which s nu in her of
creditab'e edifices ire being brought in
The Uranis l'asa Banking & Trust Co.
are t-reeting one of the most substantial
brick buildings in this portion o' the
state. The foundation if entirely of the
eolideat granite. The w hole interior ol
the foundation is solidly filled up with
river gravel and on this Ihe cement
floor will be laid. Not a timber of any
kind enters into the construction of the
floor or loniidatioii and the whole is
solid as Ihe everlasting hills.
Work is being rushed on TullN new
brick, on Sixth and II streets, which
will be occupied by the Josephine county
hank, aud the walls are well under war.
This is to be a two story brick, 50 x U0
feet in dimensions. Its situation is such
us to till out the solid business portion of
of Sixth street in a moat satisfactory
manner and it will add greatly in ap
pearance to that portion of the town.
The first story is divided into two rooms,
one of which will be occupied by the
bank and the other as a store building.
Quite a number of dwellings are in
course of construction and it is very
noticeable that ;hesev like nearly all

with a three loot vein ol quarts. The
miners of Mt. lieuben are developing
their ledges. All as far as developed
are giving good satisfaction, that is the
greater the depth, the richer and
stronger the ledge.
We hear soma flattering reports from
the quart! mines. Jo Ramsey sold his
quarts mine to Rube Jonei, who ran a
short tunnel to tap tho ledge at a greater
depth. He found s fine ledge, richer
than he was looking for. He is now
running a 100 foot tunnel to tap the ledge
lower down. The ledge is better and
stronger than it was nearer the surface.
That dispense with the theory that the
farther down you go the smaller becomes
the ledge. That idea originated with a
lot of men who came here to prospect.
They would dig a little on a ledge, then
go aw ay and say I tie country ih an

pearance. The Hay's Brigade aud the
Fire company participated in the parade
and the several organisation, headed
by the band, met at the A. O. U. W.
hall aud marched thence to the opera
house. The parade was ol quite im
posing length. Major Abe Axtell, as
.lrum major, headed the march, followed
by the band, who received many com
pliments for their exquisite mulcting
ol their beautiful selections. After the
band marched the veterans, with their
old army guns, under the command ol
John Patrick. The wide awake Hov'i
Brigade, under the conduct of Lieu
tenant K. II, Brown presented their
usual brisk and lively appearance and
the Fire company in their resplendent
red uniforms added much to the scenic
appearance ol the parade.
Before two-thirds ol the assembled
people reached the top of the opera
house stairs, the hall was reported lull
to overflowing. livery available chair
and seat was secured and standing
room was at premium.
Adjutant Aba Axtell read tho orders
lor Ihe U. A. R. Iroin headquarters
and Mrs. T. B. Cornell read the orders
for Ihe W. R. C. Then followed the
