SIMMONS MINE AT WALDO.
One of the Greatest Placers
Elevator tv Success.
The Simmons-Cameron mine of
Waldo Is running steadily undi r the
management of J. T. Logan. This
mine is one of the largest hydraulic
minis in Southern Oregon, audits
annual clenu-np runs into the tens of
thousands. It lias an inexhaustible
area of ground on which '.o oerate.
The water comes from the Illinois
river through a canal which itself car
ries water enough for a small river.
The Simmons mine is one of the
oldest hydraulic mines in Southern
Oregon and will be worked fur many
years to come.
One of the more recent features of
the miner's equipment is a hydraulic
cf valor which has been installed by
J. T. Logan. It operates very suc
cessfully ami greatly facilitates hand

TO IRRIGATE THE VALLEY.
Office Opened by Advance Irri
The Advance Electric Power Irri
gating & Mining Co., havo opened an
oflice in tho Brown building on Sixth
street, opposite tho court house. This
company is an auxiliary of tho Golden
Drift Mining Co. who are putting in
the largo dam on Roguo river about
three miles above town. C.G. Auient
is manager of the irrigation cuter
prise. He has had large experience in
irrigation matters in Colorado where
ho resided prior to coming hero to take
charge of this enterprise and his
knowledge of the subject is thoroughly
Tho project is to construct a ditch
which will cover tho valley lands
about and below Grants Pass and will
carry an abundance of water for irri
gation. By the iower furnished by
the dam, the water will thee be
pumped to tho necessary height,
Preliminary surveys havo been made
ou too promised ditch line to a elis
tanee of about nine miles below Grants
Pas Tho company is now ready to
make contracts for water and the
ditch will be built if the necessary
amount of water can be contracted.
To that end, the representatives of
the company are anxious to meet all
the farmers, gardeners and orchardists
of the valley. Work of construction
wilt bo commenced immediately if
the patronage will warrant it.
While the most of the land about
Grants Pass produces good crops with
out irrigation, and some of it is very
productive, yet the productiveness of
alltf it would bo immensely increased
by irrigation. Eveuou the most fertile
of our bottom lands, crops are cut
short by tho dryness of the late sum
mer. With irrigating facilities two
or three crops could bo raised in a sea
son nnd each would bo greater than
tho ono that is produced under the
present conditions. In addition to
this there are many acres of good laud
under the proposed ditch lino that is
too dry to produce good crops without
irrigation. On nearly all of our red
uplands, the moisture drains off
quirk ly in the spring and the hot sun
of summer dries them up before a crop
can get its growth. Ou these lands, a
little water lit tho proper timo would
work a marvelons change.
As an instance of tho value of irri
gation, one of tho orchardists below
town, whose land produces large
crops without being irrigated, experi
mented one year to seu w hat his land
would prod lieu when worked to some
where near its full capacity. Ho se
lected a small piece of ground about
ill by HO foot ill dimensions, watered
it from tho well, and fertilized it.
He raised three crops in tho season
and estimates the value of the produce
An irrigation system properly hand
led would work miracles in this valley
and would be an enormous boon to
the argienltnrai industry.
