The Ashland Tribune ill mi utteni)!
to defend Ashland's action in arrang
ing for a carnival company on the. wiuie
dales for which nun bad been ar
ranged, ha the understanding that
(iranta I'usa carnivul was not thought
of, or if it was, it was not known in
Ash hind at the limo the Woodmen (I
that town onion d into their agrocinoiii
with the carnival company. This
statement of the Tribune's is entirely
wrong. Tho iirrangemi nls for tin
Grams I'ass carniral had been entered
Into many weeks prior to tlnit time
and the matter had b t n well adver
tised and published in nearly, if no!
quit" all, of tho valley paisrs. The
Tribune disclaimed any malicious
' spirit ou Ashland's part, but, Judging
only by apicaraiiecs, tint people, not
only of Grunts Pass, bnt of Medford,
Jacksonville: and Gold Hill certuiniy
do credit Ashland with such mali
cious intuition and small spirit.
Ashland has certainly failed to
"avoid tiiu apisariinon of evil."
Some jstsoii or (srsoiis, with a
mendacious faculty which is appall
ing, spread tho rctKirt last week in
Gold Hill and Sams Valley thai
Grants Pass was full of smallsix and
that our carnival had been sist jxined.
Wo aro glad that tlio liar wa a fool
ish liar and pprung his reservoir of
falsehood in tluiu so that tho js'Ople
of those districts may bo apprised of
tho entire falsity of thu report in
plenty of time for them to attend the
carnival There is no mnallixix here,
nor has thero been a single raso for
two months past. It is common rumor
hero that a citizen of Ashland was in
Gold Kill recently with his mouth
foil of smallpox resrts about Grants
l'ass. It is hard to bellrvo that any
organization or resjjioiisiblu js.rsons
would for any reason stoop to such
fhods j it would seem morn likuly
to bo the work of some Individual of
nirrow Intellect, yet lifter Ashland's
contemptible action in the matter of
tho carnival, the town has made itself
liable to any suspicion in the matter of
narrow sollislnie.s and senseless
jealousy. It would be an Idiotic sup
jsisition that such methods will help
their carnival. The jsaipli. all over
the Uoguc river valley have observed
their action with manifest disapproval
and if it should be known that the
sinalltsix slory emamiti a from Ashhui,!
it would ls a lioomerang fatal to their
event anil the authors of the Table
would bo "hoist on their ow n petard"
with a vengeance, for Southern Oregon
lx-oplo will not supisnt any such
bureau of mendacity If they are aware

A VICIOUS STREET FIGHT
One Contestant May be Seriously
Several lights (sciirred in town
Saturday mid in one case Isith parties
may coiiid. r themselves fortunate if
the results are not serious. The fray
occurred b.lweeii " Hank" Williams
ami Itubc I'unkey. The trouble
started in the Corner saloon, where
I'.inkey bad been mixed up in a fight
earlier in the day. He had been
drinking considerably mid was cpiar
ri Isoine ami abusive under the i'l
llu. nee of the liipior. Williams aud
I'ank.y, it seems, had agreed to go
across the river and light it out.
I'anl.ey at this time was carrying u
good deal of liipior and was unsteady
on his feet. Several others wire with
the party, among them Pankev's
brother. They went down Si.xth
street iihoul three blocks when by
some word or action tho trouble was
p rocip it.it. d there. Williams struck
I'aukey, knocking him down, and
ki.k' d Ii i in in Ihe load, cutting and
hiiiising his scalp in a fearful manlier.
It is claimed that W illiams also was
Ml ruck from behind by one of I'ankcv s
adherents. Williams was arrested and
has been released on bail pending
his trial w hich w ill be held Thurs
day. At last accounts, Pankey was
making a good progress toward recov
ery and it is probable that his skull is
not fractured as was at lirst feared.

PROTECTION FOR MINES
Mining Interests Most Important,
Kditor Itogue River Courier: The ' Since the Soothern Pacific railroad
other day I received from the secre- f has been organizing exrorsioua to
tary of the Grants Pass Hoard of , Crater Lake, Oregon, the demand for
Trade, a circular to be signed by the ' a map of the region has greatly in
miners of Althouse, Josephine county, creased, and to meet this demand, the
protesting against the action of the
Deiartmcut at Washington, D. C.
making a F'. rest Reserve of any part
of Southern Oregon as put forth in
the Newspajs-rs. lint tho board of
trade seems to advocate the timber
interest and tho mill man's right over !
all others, forgetting that the many j
timber entries already mado and
which we see advertised in the
county jaitH-rs have len made by peo
ple brought here mostly from tho east
and that too, most likely by some one
or company of men who wish to play
the old hogging game, such as has
been done in so maiiT other states hr
oping up thousands of acres of tim
ber land for their own u e and bene
fit, the poor foolish locator receiving
from one to threo hundr-sl dollars for
what will return to the bis; investor
loo.ooo, but this is not tlio end of the
injury by any means. For the past 2.r
years I have told the Courier of the
riches which lay hidden iu the rocky
hills of Joseph iiu-. Supiwuo you
permit those timber locators to per
fect their titles on the thousands of
ai res of hind for its timber and stone.
what w ill become of your hundreds of
miners? Onco all the land is sold to
these timlier-iiionopolios they not only
gobble our timber but they would nlso
own all the mineral deposits in the
ouuly. The reserved country should
ha kept by the goiernmeiit for the
prospector and gold seeker. Everj
laynow, brings to light new evid, nee
of mineral wealth in the shape of
gold, copper or some other precious
metal to work which, the very tim
ber grow ing on the hills is, and will
be, needed, iu plenty. I say, and so
says every minor w ho knows anything
of under ground workings. Keep the
timber for the use of the mines for if
not needed today it will furely 1st
needed bye and bye, for without
timlsT, a miner cannot work.
Those risk ribbed mountains er-
teiKting from the Applegato to the
Coast range from east to west, will at
no distant day prove a, sourco of un
told wealth. They will furnish re
munerative labor for thoufanils of
hardy miners who w ith their families
w ill find snug little homes in the lit
tle glades and valleys which, wilh
tho assistance of the springs which
arc found in almost every vallev will
bo made to bloom and blossom like a
small Kden. Prospiwtor.

A MAP OF CRATER LAKE
Ela.bora.te Delineation of Ore-
gon's Wonderful Lake.
Crater Lake special map, prepared by
the Lnitcd States Geological Survey,
has been brought op to date and ex
tended as to represent the whole of
tho Crater Lake National Park, on
the scale of one mile to an inch. The
map is now ready for distribution.
The elevations and depressions are
shown by contours representing ver
tical intervals of 100 feet. To denote
the very steep inner slope of the great
depression containing tiic lake, the
contours are crowded close together;
to show the outer gentler slois;, they
are far ajmru
The soundings of the lake are
marked on the map, and its greatest
depth, nearly 20K) feet, makes it the
deepest fresh water lake iu the United
On the back of the map is a descrip
tion by Mr. J. S. Diiler of tho geo
logical features aud history of Mount
Mazama, including the eruptiou of
its lava flows and pumice, its glucia
tion, and its final eugalfnient, which
produced the great caldera, Ou the
bottom of which arose a small vol
canic one that uow loiuis Wizard
Island, in the lake. Three excellent
views aro given ; one, of tlio western
part of tho rim, from a photograph
by Mr. Burton L. Cniininghum, of
Ashland; another shows Mount Maza
ma restored; and the third is a view
of a model which makes the depres
sion containing the lake very -impress
ive. The price of the map is five cents.
A peculiar railroad accident occurred
