Until lately, the Idea prevailed that a

in a vein like a ledge, anil if the vein can

The old chestnut that the Southern
Pacific -company is surveying s new
route to avoid the I'ow creek canyon
waa re-sprung recently. Home one saw
a party of surveyors at work on Evans
creek and jumped at the foregoing con
clusion. This rumor lias been advanced
a number of times in past years but it is
utterly without foundation. The Cow
creek canyon ia a troublesome piece of
road, but the Canyon creek canyon
would bo atill worse. All the routes
were examined at the proper time, be
lore the road waa built. The railroad
company does not go building Mads
round through the woods and then
tearing them up again. They build it
where they want, it and let it stay
there. They do llieir preliminary work
before the road is built, not afterwards.
The strike still continues, thutigh both
sides earnestly desire peace If only it
would come in. the particular manner
lo satisfy the desiiua ol each. Klforis lo
reach an agreement have iltlierto fallen
flat. Some nulls are running with non
union men and it ia a peculiarity of this
strike that, thohgh it is stubborn, there
Is no violence or lawlessness as has keen
too often the case heretofore. Instead
of shooting non union men with gnus,
the.ltrikers use a camera instead. At
one Chicago factory, the pictures of the
lion union men are takeu every lime
thev enter or havu the works. These
pictures are to be circulated among the
dillereut unions and will give the men
au unenviable character among those
organisations. The public Is heartily
and completely faired of the strike and
ita patience I being sorely tried.
The watermelon crop of this year ia a
reminder of the foolishness of heralding
uncertain calamity, or in other words, ol
"iueallng before you're hurt." When
the severe liout last spring blackened
the vinea, it was advertised far and wide
that the Josephine county melons were
"all killed." Later it Was discovered
that there would be a few melons, mid

The) Scrlbner-Henderson Mine ex.
Wonder Operations at Oth
er Prominent Mines.
The present wonder among the varions
wonderful gold-producers of Southern
Oregon is the Scribner-Henderson mine,
of the Wolf Creek district, northeastern
Josephine County. This mine, whose
discovery and progress waa chronicled in
Tne Telegram, continues to shower its
fortunes upon Ihe lucky woodcutters w bo
abandoned their axes a few months ago
and stumbled serosa the bidden treasure
that lias made them independently rich.
II. C. Perkins, a mining man of Ibis city,
returned yesterday from a prospecting
trip through the Wolf Creek district, ind
reports that there is no cessation of the
mine In revealing its rich bunches of
Owing to the peculiar nature of the
Scribner-Henderson mine, the manner
of working it is likewise unique, 'lbere
is so much gold in the ledge snd it oc
curs so thickly distributed that no other
methods of extracting are pursued other
than panning. Tbs gold occurs in
bunches and seems lound at regular in
tervals slong the route of a stringer or
lead, that follows up Ihe mountain near
the surface. To wash the gold, the rain
era have brought a amall stream in wood
en conduits to the working grounds. In
numerous places the wooden conduits
widened cut into Isrger water toxes,
which give ample room for the several
miners to operate their pane.
Day after day Ihe miners have panned
and continue to pan the rich dirt, yield
ing from 25 ceots to $100 to the pan.
The miners say that many pans of dirt
have beea washed from which ihe nug
gets could be picked like potatoes Irnm a
hill. Shortly alter the discovery on pan
of dirt waa washed that contained 4 '
pounds of Ihe preciona yellow metal.
During Ihe few months that Ihe miners
have been working the claim an enor
mous sum of money has been removed,
just bow much would be bard to estimate;
but many thousand uollara of nuggets
from the mine have been brought lo
Uranta Pass and exchanged at the bank
ing bouses. A stewpan full of the yel
low grains brought in at one time was
weighed in the bankers' scales and $1120
given in exchange.
Besides free gold the pockets and
bunches contain a large amount of sul-
pburets which are very rich. Tnese
base formations are thrown aside in the
excitement and esgerness to get the
'pure stuff," but they will be treated
later on. There ia too much of the pure
article to bother at this time with the
Just wbal will develop from this won
derlul discovery ia a question for consid
erable discussion anions the Southern
Oregon miners. Many are of the opinion
that it will develop in time into an ex
tensive and very rich ledge. The mine
Ilea on a contact of porphyry and serpen'
tine. The gold is found in the porphyry,
the stringers all leading toward the con
tact. The bunches of yellow metal oc
cur every few incline along the stringers.
bxpeiieuced miners who have examined
the claim express the opinion that it w ill
develop into a mine of prominence. Aa
lo these things the owners say but little,
nor do they care, as they are too busy
piuxing up the gold on the aurface to
dig down in search of a ledge.
John K. Harvey, superintendent of
the noted A. A B. hydraulic mines of the
(Jalice mining district, reports that he
baa a crew of 40 men at work preparing
these extensive placer workings for next
sason'a run. The mines are being thor
oughly overhauled, new ditches and
flumes are being built and the old ones
repaired. In point nf output, tbc.ee
mines have always been the gigantic
placer proposition of Southern Oregon
but Ihe owners claim that with tlie ad
dition ol the new equipment uow being
installed and the amount of repairing
work being done, this monster hvdraulic
mine will produce twice as inucb this
winter aa it has ever dous belore.
In the Coyote Creek district, which ia
situated on the south side ol the divide,
Iving between Coyote and Wolf Creels,
are many prospectors, and several new
claims have been located and are beinu
worked, some of them making rich
showings. Among these are the Little
Jack and Anaconda claims, both of
which, give promise of developing into
good mines. Among the many proa
pectors working the district are several
miners from Alaska and British Colum
bia. Moat all of these men have located
claims and will develop the ledues for
belter or worse. While the Coyote and
Wolf Creek districts have been mined for
the past 40 years, they have Ireen run

placer miners, the ledges being over

The big Ruble hydraulic mines ol the
Coyote district, like moat all others of
the Southern Oregon placera, are under
going a thorough overhauling and receiv

the coming winter's run. These mines
cover a broad territory of auriferous
ground extending for two miles along
Coyote. The big featurea of the mines
are the it utile grizzley or hydraulic ele

the working grounds.

Where a lode location cf a milling

the end lines of the location, crussis

side lines become the end lim s, and the
extralateial right extends under and
beyond one of the enj hues, and the
side lines liecoine the l.nesof the vertical
end planes. If the claim has become
patented before the discovery of the
true apex line of the lode is made, the
title to Ihe surface Ins become veiled
and carries with it nil other lodes that
may apex within it. II the discovery is
made before patent issues, any veins
ta.it apex over 30J feet away would
seem to be subject to location. The
law limits the width of ground to 3IK)
feet on the Bides of the apex line of the
lode. The law will not, make valid

Copper on Grayback.
Itio recent copper strike made on
Little (ira hack cieek by Itahjock and
rutlerman, bids fair to prove itkelf
among the most Important yet made in
tins county. According lo rejiortB, Jthe
new discoveries consists of i parallel
ledges cutting diagonally through Little
Oray back, each ledge being from 1U0 to
3000 feet apart. Some of thise ledges
are of exceptional pioportions, being
several hundred feet in width with out
croppings appearing on both sides of the
mountain. From these various ledges
ore has been removed from the auriace
aud assayed ; the returns show a pret
ence of Irom 10 to 18 per cent copper,
which ia a most remarkable showing to
be lound at Ihe surface.
Strike at Copper Stain.
A new strike waa recently made t
Copper Slain. A drift was being
run in the mine and in the course ol
construction a qiurlx body appeared on
one sine ol it. (iold was found in the
rock on examination and a shot was put
in, uncovering a large ledge in which
the gold glitters visibly.

trip, though it isn't heivy. So far we
have had a delightful trip, and there has
been really no excuse for sea sickness.
We have been out six days and this is
my first attempt t starts letter. To
return to where 1 left off in mine of
uly 21st: If I've remarked that the
Lakes were beautiful and the illumina
lion at the "Pan" wonderful, I must
reach the r.enith and exclaim that
Niagara seen from all points is sublime.
After an 1'3 hour trolley rule Irom
Uutl'alo, along purt of the Niagara riier
e reached the city of Niagara, stop
ping at the Government Park. Here
were numerous carriages ready to con
vey us lo the Kalis at 5c each. Know
ing it to be only two minutes walk we
lecliued. Crossing tha Park we stood
by a railing right at the point where the
American Falls drop 10 feet. It was
glorious to be ao close to ihe waler and
we enjoyed II lo the full. We walked
slowly from point to point getting dif
ferent views and w hen we felt eaiiblied,
the question was what nexi? We
selected the Maid o' the Mist, walked
lown (?) stairs to the river, donned
rubber coals and head gear and ulf we
were into the mist of the American falls
along ,(ioat Island, into the in no a of
Horse Shoe Kails an I then to the d n k
on the Canadian side. It a ore,.t
From there we went in a cable car up an
incline of 4'i degiees to the tup u'. the
blitll. Ilcie is Victoria Park, through
which we had a delui.llul driva In il.-
tiorse siue rails. Over these full.
Hows the greit bu.k of the wat.r of
Niagara, and there is seen the majestic
power ol this wonder oi intuir- n.

Kogue Hiver Valley will soon have
several irrigation systems, according to
J. L. Howard, a civil engineer of Med
ford, who is in Tortland, says the Ore
gonian. He lias recently been making
estimates for the Fish Lake ditch, eight
miles of which lias been dug thia year.
This ditch draws its water from Little
Butte Creek, and its Btirveyed line is 42
miles long, from the headgates to a
point opposite Medford, which town
will probably be supplied with water by
"The people interested in the ditch,"
Mr. Howard said yesterday, "are San
Francisco capitalists, who own irrigat
ing canals in Central and Southern Cal
ifornia and therefore know what they
are about. They have obtained title to
1000 acres of level land under this ditch,
and besides cultivating this, they will
be able to sell water to farmers, fruit
growers and placer minors along the
route. At the sixteenth-mile stake the
company has a 100-foot fall, which can
be utilized for manufacturing purposes
and for forcing the water to an elevation
at Medford should that town decide to
deal with us."
Mr. Howard thinks the graders will
reach the sixteenth-mile stake thii fall.
"The ditch is 10 feet wide at bottom,"
he said, "15 feet on top. It will carry
four and a half feet depth of water,- or
about liOtlO miners' inches. JJew-style
grading machines and modern scraiers
are being used. The ditch will cost
mo per mile."
