THE SILVER. CREEK BASIN.
Extensive Plcxcer - Area. Now
Being Opened (or Hydrau
A big placer project is now being
carried out on Silver creek on the
western edge ol the county. The en
prise is the opening of the big Silver
creek basin, which is supposed to be
immensely rich but which can not now
be worked on account ol the depth to
The Silver creek basin was lorrued by
an immense rock slide, as may be clear
ly seen by observation. A mountain
of rock ' towering hundreds of (eet
almost perpendicularly above the
stream has broken off and filled np the
canyon with immense rocks that the
stream was powerless to move and
ss a consequence, the stream was forced
over against the solid rock wall back ol
the slide, where it cut new bed in the
rock, preventing all possibility of its ever
washing out the slide unaided. The
Silver creek falls are formed where the
creek drops off its more recent rock bed
into the canyon of its former course.
The obstruction thus formed has
dammed the creek to such an extent
that miners have found it impracticable
to drain the bedrock within a distance
of two miles above the falls. Above
tiiis point the creek was very rich and
the profusion of big nuggets which it
produced in former days has made the
working of the basin always a live prob
lem . The basin is not level or flat; on
the contrary it has considerable grade
but the grade of the surface is less than
that of the bedrock and the depth of the
gravel at the lower end makes hydraulic
elevators and like appliances impracti
cable. Many methods of opening the
basin bave been discussed and many
plena suggested. Some have advocated
blowing out the bed of the stream witb
dynamite, others are of the opinion
that a good head of water brought in a
ditch and turned loose over the precipi
tous lower side of the rock wall would
cause the obstruction to break away.
One great objection urged to this latter
scheme is that it might fill up the
canyon below witb broken rock, thus
preventing the outlet. The most feasible
scheme, according to the best con'
elusions, is a tunnel and this enterprise
is being carried out at the present time.
The basin property together witb the
(alls and dump claim, comprises seven
claims or HO acres, luls body oi
ground is about two miles long and
varies from 100 feet to half a mile in
width. It has been found next to im
possible to prospect this ground to the
bedrock. The gravel beneath the sur
face is so loose that the water flows
freely through it and puts a damper on
sinking operations at a depth of a few
leet. The volume of water is so great
that it can not be handled in the shaft
by any appliance available. Ashley
and Metts put in a good pumping plant
at a narrow point in the canyon in Ibe
upper portion of. the basin, with water
power, machinery and flumes, but were
able to sink only about 30 feet, failing
to reach bedrock. The depth of the
gravel in the basin is not known and
its richness is judged only by the yield
of the gravel in the creek above.
At the present time, Metts and Leigh
are running a tunnel "under the falls"
for an outlet. To a beholder who comes
suddenly upon the scene the enterprise
is startling in the extreme.
Above the slide the creek starts on a
huge semicircle which ends at the falls.
The creek, at er a series of rspids and
cascades, takes a sheer drop of perhaps
100 feet, then slips and slides at an
angle down the bare smooth rock for 25
or 30 feet farther. In summer time.
when the wster is low, the falls are
delicately beautilul; in winter, when the
creek is a raging torrent, they are
sublime. The precipitous nature of the
country is something almost terrific.
To be at the foot of the falls is like being
in a well. On all sides save one, where
the canyon ol the creek below stretches
sway to the southwest, the walls rise
almost perpendicularly. It is here that
the tunnel site is situated and the course
of the tunnel is the disineter of the
semicircle described by the creek. The
month of the tunnel is perhaps 100 feet
to the westward of the falls and is 160
feet from the bottom of the canyon. It
was a difficult and dangerous feat to get
working foothold on the almost
perpendicular rock wall, but it was done
by rareful and level headed work. A
trail was built as fsr down as possible
from the point above, then when the
wall became too precipitous, ladder
was set into a niche or groove cut Into
the rock and the outer side of the groove

boarded np as a protection from rolling
or' sliding rocks. By this means it was
possible to reach the tunnel site, where
a platform was constructed on the side
of the cliff by means of posts let in
niches in the rock, and this structure,
roofed over, now serves as a blacksmith
shop. Looking. at it from below, the
the little building seems to be sticking
to the side of the wall like some monster
the tunnel is being bored through the
rim of solid rock between the new
canyon and the old, the latter of course,
being filled np with slide rock. The
solid rock is intensely hard, making
progress slow and difficult, but these
condition will prevail only until the
solid rock is passed. When the tunnel
breaks through into the slide rock of
the former canyon, the work will
progress much more rapidly. The
length of the tunnel will probably be
something more than 1000 feet, of which
over 100 feet is now completed. The
tunnel is about seven feet in height by
five in width and has a grade of about
10 inches to the rod in anticipation ol
its being used as a sluiceway. When
gravel is reached, if the channel is
"bottomed" an upraise will be made to
the surface. If it should happen that
the tunnel did not strike the cbanuel
low enough to drain it, Its Boor would
have to be cut down to the required
depth. The former channel of the creek
may be plainly seen where it emerges
Irom under the slide and this channel is
a guide to the operations.
Once opened, this will be one of the
most gigantic placer enterprises in
southern Oregon. The dump is infinite
and the ground almost everlasting.
The water privilege is ample and service
able for nearly the whole year and any
amount of pressure msy be secured.
The history of the creek leaves little
doubt as to the auriferous quality of the

Good Words for Oregon.
Dr. J. II. Kessler, who a few weeks
ago left Portland on an extended trip
South and East, writes that formerly
when he read of trips of travelers, how
they invariably praised the Web'oot
state after having gone beyond its
boundaries, he thought they were do
ing so only to get their names In print
or to say something nice about their
home, but he has now, through actual ex
perience, learned that Oregon is fully
what it is "cracked" up to be. Says he :
"Since leaving Portland, 1 have travel
ed through California, Colorado, Ari
zona, New Mexico, Kansas and Texas,
and must say to the Oregoniaus that
they do not know what a great state they
live io until they have seen other parts
of the country. If they could see parts
that I have seen on my present trip, they
would nevor again complain about the
rains and the weather.
"Leaving the, Navajo desert and roll
ing into the vast prairies of Arizona and
New Mexico, the traveler enters beauti
ful sections of country, but so dry, hot
and dusty that it is most unbearable,
especially so this year. Drought has
done great damage. Millions of acres
ol pasture lie burnod from the parching
sun, and the thought just struck me
what fertile lands these would be if the
rains of Oregon could but be duplicated
"The laboring men of the Northwest
csn also feel glad of their condition
when they get $2 a day. Here they are
paid $1 per day and $15 per month ou
the farms aud ranches. Cotton-picking
brings about the same remuneration as
hop-picking in Oregon. The cotton
crop appears to he very good this year,
and from what observations I have made
along the railroad, there is plenty of
money in circulation in the South this
season. Texas is raising rice on the
Lower Colorado lliver. and I am told
that some growers cleared as much as
$1000 an acre this year."
