BANNER COPPER STRIKE.
What is considered to be the richest
copper strike in the history of the Pa
cific Coast has been made in the npicr
Chetco district, in Southern Josephine
County, extending across the line in
to Del Norte County, California. A
largo quantity of ore from Hie strike
was brought into this city last week.
It is nearly all half ropia-r, and is un
doubtedly the richest coir quartz
ever uncovered in Oregon. Much of
the rock carries values of 30 to TO per
The ore was taken from the claims of
Colonel J. 8. Crawford, recently of
Denver, and associates. They have
uncovered a large ledgii that lias an
average width of 100 feet, and extends
for a long distance into both Oregon
and California. The big vein lies iu
contact of lime. It is in a heavilv
timbered mountain range, lying be
tween the south fork of the Chetco in
Oregon and the north branch of the
Smith River in California It is all
practically in Oregon, as it can only
lie reached from Josephine or Currv
County from the Grant's Pass-Crescent
City stage line. The big ledge out
crops at a score or more of different
points. These outcroja occur in large
crags and are themselves half copper
in many instances. Colonel Crawford
has a large crew of men at work run
ning tunnela and ainkiug prospect
shafts. From the men at work it has
been learned for a certainty that the
ledge is permanent. Colonel Crawford,
who is an old Colorado and Montana
miner, aaya that he baa never seen any
thing tliat would compare with it.
He ia firm in his opinion tliat it is
the making of tlie greatest copper
mine in America. He and his associ
ates are men of means and enterprise.
They are thoroughly developing their
claims and will rat them in sliape fur
work on an extensive scale.

CAUGHT BETWEEN CARS.
Archie Grieves, a bmkcmnn, was
the victim of a peculiar and nearly
fatal accident ou Friday at the gran
ite pit north of town. In order to
make a coupling, he gave the back-up
signal and failed to get out from be
tween the cars, Tho granite cars are
flat cars with projecting ends which
meet, so that the dirt may be scraped
off a whole train at once with a huge
scraper and cable, operated by the lo
comotive. Mr. G rieves seems to have
forgotten for the moment that be was
not coupling ordinary fiat cars and so
was canght between them. He was
released as soon as possible, but at
that time little hope was entertained
for his recovery. Ho was brought
to town and given medical attendance.
Several ribs were found to be broken
and iuterual injuries were of course
exix-eted. Mr. Grieves, however, sur
prised every one by making a rapid
improvement. On Sunday lie was re
moved to his home at Ashland and at
last accounts was doing well. It is
said that tho self-coupling npjiarntns
of the cars was so clogged with dirt
that it would not work, and so did not
allow the cars to come immediately
together. About a four-inch space
was left the young man, which is a
closer "squoezo" than tho most of
us con Id stand.
