THURSDAY. APRIL. 2, 190X
The Jackson county deleifation will,
it is sitid, support W. I. Vawtcr for
randidiicv bh rnnirrcHgnnill in the rnm
ing republican congresiiioiiiil coiivon-
Admiral Dewier nnido some com
iiuriHoua tmtwwn the Ann-rioim and
Giiriuiiu mivlcs which wero not relish
ed by the latter people. The German
print waxed qaite indiniuint over liift
ronutrki and it looked for awhile, us
though it iniK'it bo an nlTiilr for tin
department of Hluri) to settle. Oil In
vitation of the president, however,
the admiral called at tho White
Houm) and delivered himself of the
assurance that no nffniiHO wits in
tended. This is lield to bo suflleienl
salvo for the injured Teittniiic' pride
anil the curtain may be considered
dropped and the comedy over.
The project of a public library, for
which (lie mass meeting is to ho bold
on Friday evening, is one which
should command attention and di
serves the support of all citizens who
have at heart tho public welfare. The
project involves some exiienso and de
mands some generosity on the part of
those who will sen no direct benefit
resulting to themselves for those who
profit by tint library are, generally
speaking, not tho ones whose mouey
supjsirU it. There are few men,
liowevor, who will grudgo mi expeii
dituru when they can see no Individ
ual benefit reuniting for themselves.
A mini is indebted to society for all
the comforts which he may enjoy and
this fact should make him generous
toward his fellow mail in general.
In tho rush tor timber lands which
is now going on throughout Southern
Oregon, tho miners should watch the
lis'atious carefully and be ready with
their protests if timber locations are
made upon ground claimed by them.
A better way is for every miner who
owns a mining claim which might
possibly bo located ukiii as timber
land to semi in a plat of bis mining
bind to tho .land office, and a timlier
location on thai piece, of land will
not then Is) allowed, l.'verv miner
should know tho location of his
ground by notion, townshin and
range and should carefully watch the
timber locations. It would lie, a good
thing for the miners to select some
ono to keep ail eye on tho timlmr loca
tions and let each one furiilHli that
Hrson with a description of their ow n
Tho projii't of a wagon road from
i-S'iaim to tut Koubcii, which Is to be
laid before tho county court this
week, is one or great imiKirtanco to
tho county This road has I n talked
of before, but at no time has the time
for Hction In this matter been more
auspicious than at tho present.. The
miiio owners of Mt. Koubcii give the
assurance of completing tho road to
the m I nea if the county will build
it from Lcliiud to Reuben creek. Mt.
ReuU'ii is one of the most important
mining districts in the county and is
growing in imiNirtauee every day.
There will bo a mimlicr of big qnaru
mines in ochitltii there in t lie m ar
future mid this road is domi.ndcil both
for the convenience or the mine own
itkiiiuI the promotiou of development
and for the cniniuerclal and industrial
welfare of Josephine county.
The Hoard of Trade is making an
effort for thu collection of an exhibit
from Josephine county for the Oregon
bureau of Informal ion at 1 'oi l land.
It is the intent nm that all the pro
ducts and enterprises of the county
aliiill 1k represented and the i nhibit is
intended to include mineral, timlicr,
agricultural ami fruit products. The
most innsirtant juirt of the exhibit
will bo the minerals and it is to their
collection that the Hoard Is giving its
Iwrticuli.r attention. Nothing can be
done, however, without the co oicrii
tiou of the miners and mine owners.
A request lias been made to them
for specimens, hut thus far, few re
turns have been received. Some of
the-miiiers have" rescinded promptly!
and to such the movers in the enter
prise nil particularly guileful Others
have signified their Intention of giv
ing specimens as soon as they can
.cure them. Hut to the ureal major
ity of the mpiesti, no response has
been received. The bureau in IVrl

GALICE HYDRAULIC CO.
Opere-tiona Befun on Their Big
The Galice Hydraulic Mining Co.
... ... . :n ,...
are installing a saw nun n'
mouth of Galice creek, to cut lumber
for buildi-iK aud flumes. A number
of butm. and boarding houses will be
erected near the mouth of the creek
and this will Is- made the brndinart
ers of tho cump. A hotel for the ac
commodation of transient travel will
also be a feature of the new camp.
As soon as arrangements can be made,
tho crock bed will be ouciu d by a
fiume at the mouth of the creek and
the bedrock ol the channel will In
swept by the giants. The creek bed
of Gulico was worked many years ago
by means of pan, rockrr and sluice
and is known as ono of the richest
creeks iu Sou horn Oregon. KxiTi-
enccd miners judge the project of
sweeping out the creek bod as one
which should prove profitable iu a
large degree. The creek lias sullicicnt
fall to make the project feasible. He
sides the gold, certainly a con.-i.l -r-able
amount, which must have be. n
left in the enck after ls ing winked
by the old primitive methods, then
has Is en an accumulation of gold iu
tlie creek bed ever fince, or for n
period of more tlinii 40 years, throng!
breaking down of the higher channels',
by thu wash from tlie gulches and by
slides. The "tailings" from tin
workings of the immense chan
nels, notably those of tlie old Aukeuy
diigiiiKK. which were dumped into
Galice creek, yield good returns now
for piping, as they have beconu
docoiniKisod through years of exposuri
to thv elements.
Hesides tlie creek bed, the bars of
Galice without exception pay good ri
turns when worked vvith reasonahli
facilities and judgment, and some of
tin-in have proven remarkably rid
There are a number of low bars,
know n to be rich ground, whose work
ing has been diHteuIt heretofore ol
account of lack of dumping facilities.
After the creek bi d has been let down
to bedrock, the working of these bars
will he an easy matter. Ilesides the
ground which is in sight, there is
known to be considerable grave
covered up by slides and which will
be exposed by tlie operation of the
giants. The higher bars along tin
lower part of the creek's course an
rich iu gold, but their working has
heretofore been hamis-rcd by lack
water. Tlie company will extend
their diteli from upper Galice and
will bring their magnificent watt
right to bear on these gravel deposits.
The gold of Galice is on the coarse
order and is very heavy, making it
easy to save. It is of a high dcgrei
of purity and commands a high price
in tho markets. Tho management of
thu enterprise- is in the bauds of A.
11. Cousin, who has bad considerable
hydraulic exjicriouoii ou Gnlioe and is
one of the most enterprising and suc
cessful mining nu n in the state.

Petitions are out for the purpose of
invoking the referendum on the cor
poration tux law and the portage rail
way. The objection to the former is
its retarding elicit on mining de
velopment and this view of tlie oast
is well stated by W. C. Cowgill, city
editor of the Baker Citv Democrat in
recent interview published ill the
Orcgniiiaii. He savs :
You can say that the mining men
of eastern Oregon, as well as those of
southern Oregon, tire a unit in t heir
opposition to the bill passed by the
r nt legislature placing a special
tax and very heavy premium upon ail
corporations, and particiilarlv mining
uinp.iuics, for the very privilege of
having a name.
mining men do not believe
that Governor Chamberlain wasfullv
.ilviseil of the facts in the case, or be
would have vetoed this bill. I'nder
its provisions the prnsiicctor, the
pioneer, the discoverer, the small
mine owner, has no show w hatever
to develop his property or profit by bis
discovery. The extremely high tax
based on capital stock, is prohibitory.
