SUNNY SOUTHERN OREGON
Dakota Lady's Impression of
Grants Pass and Josephine.
Tlio following is nu extract from a
letter pnlilinht-d in tlio Kews&Tiiuoa,
.of Uraftou, X. Dak, by Mr. S. E.
Bates, now in onr city, who lias re
cently taken a homestead near Waldo.
In conclusion of the ettcr, Sirs."
Eateg guvs: "Aa soon as the roads
improve, it is my desiro to tako a
timber claim, for tlio more I see
of Ori son the more I want to possess
"My arriving lionr at Grouts Puss
was midnight, and as the cajiacity of
the livo hotels in the city is taxed to
the utmost, the hotel ruuners are not
very much in evideuco at tlio midnight
trains but I managed to find someone
to help my (laughter nud myself with
onr numerous grips, to a hotel. I
was car- sick and tired, and retired
with a poor opinion of the towu I had
uot yet seeu. Consequently tlio scene
presented to mo in the, morning was
1 pleasant surprise. There, nestled
among the hills w ith 8 snow capped
mountains- 111 the distance, at au alti
tude of a thousand feet, ou the north
bank of the linguo river, tlio sun of
want seemed like our Inildcst May
morning iu Dakota, was easting itR
gold .'ii beams over the-already green
lawns of Grants Pass an incorporated
city of about 3,000, and tho county
seat of Josephine conuty. Good, sub
stantial brick blocks wcro everywhere
visible, and I find all lines of profess
ional and coiniaerei il life represented,
while an exceptionally choico lino of
up-to-date, go'uls is displayed by tho
lu rch, in!s. Tho business men of the
city are progressive, energetio, pub
lic-spirited and nuited in all that
tends to tho development of the city;
an active Board of Trade is over ou
the alert for the interests of Grants
Pass. The moral tone of the city, I
shonld say is high, if the eight com
modious and beautiful churches are
any criterion. And it is uoticeablo
that what upK-ar to lie tlio represen
tative meu and women of the place
aro found actively interested In church
work. The public schools accommo-
lato 800 pupils mid an addition will
soon be under way of construction.
There aro kindergarten and primary
departments and grammar and high
school, the latter covering a course of
four years. Uud T the supervision
of a pi-iuci; al, l." teachers aro em
ployed. Grants IVs is the shipping point
for nearly lliu entire; business of the
county; and when it is remembered
that Josephine county boasts tho finest
tinnier, richest mines and some of tlio
best agricultural lands in Southern
Oregon, a realization of the extent of
this business will be better realized.
This business is increasing yearly as
the county continues to develop its
rich resources. Oregonians do not
build on the success or failuru of one
crop; are not at the mercy of the
elements. With timber, mining, graiu
and fruit raising to draw from, the
support of the county is always as
sured. Southern Oregon is. not. ux
pcrieiiVingn boom that will eventually
fall Hat; miles of heavy timber aro
here to speak for themselves aen s of
which, tlio choicest of white prno and
sugar pine, aro still uiiHiirveyed.
I'.ieii mines, that for the past 4."r years
tnd more have yielded paying returns
to 1 1 iti must siipcrlicial ininiuir, now,
through the agency of modern machin
ery and appliances, and capital, are
just beginning to be appreciated,
l or instance six years ago, the gold
output of Oregon amounted to Jl.tieO,
.'til, nearly one. half of which was
mined ill Southern Oregon, tho largest
fur '.'0 Years. Today, good authority
estimates the output as nearly live
tines that much, while rich new
striircs are constantly rejiorted, and
ledges kunwn to be valuable aro still
untouched. Copper mines of extra
ordinary richness have Im ii known to
ei:-t ill tin- southern iart of Josephine
county, which lack of capital has so
fir prevented being successfully
worked, but a rniiijiany with
requisite on ans are now prewiring to
As iu North Dakota nothing but

cause the soil lay waiting the sower
and that commodity commanded the
hiirlicst price, fo in plum cr days did
On goniuns turn to mining, and of the
most stii rfieial kind, as the source
easiest to realize relies, liut with
the advent of the railroad, the timls r
interests were devclojird and jieople
entered looking for permanent homes
that could bn quickly made without
much capital ciend'-d. The most in
ditferent methods of farming rewarded
the tiller with a comfortable suhit
eii -e and little more was atteuiited in
the majority of can. s. As the rich
resources and conditions liocame

ity of Southern Oregon to all kinds of
fruit raising, as wit as grains, en
crgetie eastern agriculurists are avail

and a new era iu agriculture is ojk n
iug to this portion of Oregon. Apples,
piunis, pruie pears, js-uches ami an
endless v.iri-y i f grajs-s are success
fully rallied; apples and grajss -jscially
prolific and choice, Is-siib-s
all the small fruits. The fact that
Josephine county is so traversed by a
net work of nr.-ams tributary to the
I'.ogue rive', Appb gate, and Illinois
I river, invites the confidence of the
'agriculturist still further bTau of
t Ik- assurance of ready and jasy irriga
tion. As the mines are Iscoming
..roughly and more extensively do
Vr!i'd, and m ones opened, as
agriculture and fruit raising is ts-iom-iug
more ext. ndi d and varied and suc
cessful, as the vast tracts of timbrr In
Southern Oregon and across the Cali
fornia line aro being takeu every day
brings new parties iu search of timber
the necessity for more extensive
shipping facilities than the Southern
Pucilic affords becomes more impera
tive, and the survey made from Grants
Pass to Crescent City, California,
lust, year will result in the building
of tho desired railroad for which the
mining and timber interests of both
states cauuot afford to wait many
Fortunate is the person who, having
capital to invest, desires timber land,
or who is looking for a locution in
business, mokoB Southern Oregon
his objective point within the uext
few montliB; but if ho would have
the choicest timber, it mast bo within
the nest few weeks.
I would not represent Southern Ore
gon as quite a paradise, for, although
a health resort, ami during most of
the year, ideal, I obsorvo that doctors
and undertakers are uot without em
ployment at this particular point, and
should judge that there are tbreo or
four months out of the 12 that are not
ulwuys ideal. Still they compare
favorably with tho six or seven
mouths of snow and cold and storms
in other localities, oud the efforts to
maintain life, health and prosperity
need be far lesrf strenuous."
IT'S TOM EAST'S TUNNEL
Origin of Ancient Tunnel Found
M He.ll Mines
I11 an articlo iu last week's Courier
in regard to the Hall group of mines
on Grave creek, mention was made of
the finding of an ancient tunnel
with tho surface covered up nud tbe
existenco of the tunnel olmost entirely
coueealed. The! circumstance started
the memories of the old timers to work
and Henry Yokum recalls that this
tunnel was driven almost 60 years ago,
about tlio year of IMS, by an English
man named Tom East, who was among
the very first of tho miners and pros
pectors to operate on tho creek. The
position of thn timbers about the
mouth of the tunnel seems to indicate
that East had concealed tho work
Tho name of Tom East is perpetuat
ed in this county by a small tributary
of Grave creek which is named for
him, "Tom East creek." Though
rather iiisignilleent iu size, it is
famous for having two of the best
mines iu Southern Oregon, quartz and
placer, tho Greenback and tho Colum
bia, situated along its course.
A good many of the earlier settlers
in this county remember Tom East.
Ho died about tbreo years ago r.ear
the mouth of Hoguo river whero he
had lived for a good many years with
an Indian wife. East is credited w ith
having killed a number of Indians and
Chinamen during his stay in Southern
Oregon. S. Isham of this city pulled
him off a Chinaman whom ho was
trying to drown in a mudhole, some
time iu the 'CiO's, and saved the life
of tho Celestial. For this action, he
incurred Eust's life long enmity.
Tom East was one of the products of
an age which is past for Southern
Oreogu, and there aro few of his type
now living. He died in ixiverty and

Tho "Kcdliean" was the pnqicrty
of 1$. W. Kiggs, Wm. Flamiii and I'.eii

discovered by theni ulsiut two years
ago. It is located on Green moun
tain, which lies between Cow creek
and tho head of Grave creek, ami is
situated ou "Hog 'em" gulch, u small
triburary of Cow creek. The ore at
the surface wus worked, yielding excel,
lent returns. There is a tunnel tup
ping tin- ledge at a depth of about :Ai
feet and at that depth the ledge has a
width of nearly eight feet, currying
average values of t.'ll per ton. Some
of the ore taken from the ledge has
been remarkably rich. While at pres
ent the property is scarcely more than
a proHiet, it is one of very great

WELCOME BRAVE ADMIRAL
Grants Pass People Greet Hero of
Admiral Windcld S. Schley, tho
gallant here of Santiago, passed
through Grunts Pass Sunday evening.
I he opjsirt unity to greet so great a
man as the admiral wus not lost ou
tlio people of Grunts Puss and a large
crowd was assembled at the diqsit.
To the di.supimhitmciit of many the
train was scheduled for 7 o'clock, au
hour behind time. Thn crowd dis
peihcd iii view of the long wait and
when the whistle sounded alsmt li
minutes before 7, many of thei.i "had
to hurry," in order to see and hear
the gnat num. Tho bund was out in
force but hud little time for playing.
Admiral and Mrs. Schley wore, in
trodui ed to tlie assembled jsopln from
tin' rear end of the train by Mayor
I'ashor. The admiral made a brief
speech telling of his favorable impres
sion of Oregon aud of its Js-oplo.
He said that It was the first time lie
had ever Iseii in Oregon, but that
after Is ing lu re once, ho would sure
ly w ish to return. His remarks were
quite brief as he sensibly said just
enough and quit. Ho then leaned
over the railing of the rear platform
and shook bands with the ieople who
pressed up for that purpose.
The admiral beurs as close resem
blaucn to bis pictures as can be
imagined. He is about nu ilium
height aud rather slender. llu is
dignified without being arrogant and
bis manner is unassuming and m usi

not pulled up with bis greatness.

As I was riding on the train the
other day I noticed a very large ad
vertisement sign in a field faolng

largo letters advertising; a certain
brand of whiskey. It read: "
Whiskey, that's all."
I began to reflect upon the adver
tisement. It is evidently a very sad
misstatement, and I coiioluded it

Worklngmen and Saloons.
The labor unions aud the church
ought to unite for the destruction of
the un-Amerlcau liquor saloon. Tho
saloon is the spider, anil his web is
American life, aud the overwhelm
ing majority of the human flies
caught in that web are worklngineii.
Tho Christian church would kill the
spider, and destroy the web; it seeks
a hundred thousand young men who
every year are caught and engulfed in
tho loathsome net The labor unions
ought to help os. We are uot fighting
liberty, but we are warring against
license and lust and greed, and
battling to save mankind. I call for
alliance, otTenisve aud defensive ls9
twocn the churches and the labor
unions to overthrow aud banish the
liquor saloons. No other one thing
would help either the church or work
logmen half so much as that.
Supjiose every saloon were a work

laborer sjsiiids for beer and whiskey
were saved, aud paid ou a house and
lot for his home. Can anyone doubt
the laborers ol America would be far
