GREAT IS VICTOR JUNIOR.
Wm. II. Brevoort of New York and
Ebcii Smith of Los Angeles, two of
thu principle stockholders of the Vic
tor Junior mine, in the Grave, creek
district, who have Isien iiiHs'ctiiig
their property during the juist week,
make the announcement that they will
add liO stamM, a numlsr of new con
centrators, a cyanide plant, and u
quantity of other machinery to tlieir
big mine. This news is gladly hail
ed by Southern Oregon mining men,
as it is proof positive of the worth
of deep sinking and the working on a
big scale of Josephine quartz mines.
With theso additions the Victor
Junior will become tlio leading and
bcHt-cquipiaMl quartz mine in the
state west of the Cascades. It is un
derstood that before tlio new stain
are installed the mill will lie moved
further down the hill, to reduce the
amount of work required ill hoisting.
The Victor Junior Company have been
buying up adjoining claims until they
are now practically in khhcs1ou of
the whole Greenback mountain.

that certain nit-u, in tlieir ncsirc io
defeat J.O. Booth for county judge,
are resorting to the old effete jiolitical
methods of political slander, which
siuce the sudden taking off of our
president, Hon. William Mckinley,
liave been so repulsive to the Ameri
can people. There are some who no
not believe in recognizing g.xxl niBiiy
one until fliey are dead and bunco,
but this spirit has received a set-back.
If anything were needed to insure Mr.
Booth's election this slanderous false
hood supplies the deficiency; even
the republicans speak tlieir disapprov
al o' it. A few days ago a prominent
republican candidate said to me
have you heard the slanderous story
that has been raised against Mr.
Booth;" I answered thus: "No, I
have not." He then told me, and
added: "Of course it 1R a lie (i give
his exact words) and the fact that
is doing the most of tho talking
adds odium to it." If I rememlsr
correctly, when Mr. Booth ran for
state treasurer he carried this county
by about 850 majority, and he will 1'
elected this time by a good majority.

THAT COW ORDINANCE.
FMitor Courier: In the last issue of
the Observer we notice an article in
which it is stated that Jack Williams,
the republican candidate for county
judge, would lose some farmers' votes
because he had voted for an ordinance
to nrohibit stock from running at
large in the town of Grants Pass.
This is not a fair statement of the
matter. A short time ago Jack Wil
liams introduced an ordinance and
got it passed ill the city council rais
ing the fees for imiiomidiiig stock
from 50 cents to i5(), but, as this
was not deemed punishment euougl
for the farmer thut would allow his
cattle to stray off, and cross the
boundary lino of the citv, he further
provided that they should be fined
in a sum of not less than $3.50 nor
more than ?.o tor each otlcnse.
Now, it seems imjiossible for the
farmers to prevent tlieir stock from
occasionally getting inside the city
limits, mid as they lire not able to iiy
the alMive-mentioiied penalty that Jack
Williams would inflict on them, they
are connsdled to sell oh" their stock
and ipiit the business.
It is not only the fanners on Jones
creek that intend to vote for J. O.
Booth, but they will do so nearly un
auimously in every direction around
They have no use for a limn who
docs not follow the principle of "liv
and let live." The farmer should not
bo censured for looking out for his in
terosts, and protect himself from lie
ing cinched. They will vote for the
man who is known to lie their friend,
regardless of jiarty ties. Farmer.

The court house was well filled last
Thursday evening to hear James A.
Tate, secretary of the prohibition
national committee, w ho is stumping
the state for the prohibitionists ill
the present campaign. Mr. Tate is
an interesting and vigorous talker
and was applauded frequently during

voted the prohibition tiarty ticket

men has done the best they knew up to

At the close of his address Mr. Tate
organized a Prohibition Alliance with
J. M. Isliaiu as president and W. L.

HOUS AT LARGE.
4 In the last issue of ihu Observerl we
that the farmers have made a request
for the voters of Grouts Pass to re
frain from voting on the proposed hog
law, mid sjicnkiiig us a farmer, and u
I believe voicing the sentiments of the
majority of other farmers I will nj
that there are just two kinds of fann
ers who oppose tlio bog law: First,
those who own bogs nod expect said
hogs to farm tlieir neighbors fields
and gardens and tho other kind who
farm tlieir neighbors' hogs, that is, git
out and kill and skin them ou the
range and thereby get the principal
part of tlieir living.
In some counties of the state then
iH a bounty on coyote scHlps to protect
the poor sheep man whose sheep run
over the government bind ujkiu which
he iys no taxes. In Josephine
county wo can fence against coyote!
cheaper than wo can against hogs.
Tho extra cost of fencing to keep hop
out of cultivated land in Josephine
county is more than all the hogs in
the county are worth, and yet one
class of men are asked to bear all
this exiH iise, in tho interest of tlie
hog skinner and HOG who owns hop,
and practically nothing else, and
turns his hogs out to root or die but
with the certain knowledge that they
are going to root in his neighbors'
Held. The farmers are taxpayers, and
the taxpayers of Grants Pass are till
ed to refrain from voting on a ques
tion that will materially lighten hU
burden of expense, und in tlie same
column the farmers are asked to vote
a high school for Grants Pass, a thing
that will, iu fact, increase his tw
and will result iu good for Grants
Pass. The farmer docs not object to
paying extra tuxes to benefit our
county scat and I believe IW outol
every 100 will voto for the proposed
high school, but we certainly think
is to the interest of tho citizens of
Grunts Pass to stand iu with the til
payer instead of the hog rustler.
