Investments, which are attracting at

Mr. Ward has spent nearly a year
in the endeavor to float the Gold Hill
high-lire ditch company, in which he
is heavily interested, at Gold Hill,
in Southern Oregon, of which he says :
'Within the past two months,
money matters have shown a marked
improvement. For three months be
fore that time, finances were very
shaky, and it was difficult to secure
financial aid for any enterprise ; but
the recent advance In Wall street has
aided me in carrying out my project
to a successful termination.
"Tho amount of money involved in
the enterprise is close to 1 1.000,000,
and means much to Gold Hill and
Southern Oregon; both from a niinlug
aud agricultural standpoint The
ditching will be used to convey water
for placer mining as well as for irri

will bo nearly 100 miles long, and
will be used for placering a bed of

but ou account of the Inability to get

and very little development has been
'It is now the iuteutiou of the
company to begin active operations
and push this big enterprise to a suc

"I was more than pleased at the
change of sentiment that has taken
place in the central Btates relative to
mining investments, aud the good
fueling that exists; especially as re
gards Gold Hill and Southern Oregon.
The industry is now looked upon with
much favor, sluco many business men

Lively Interest In War,
Mr. John Develiu of Applegato was
in Jacksonville Wednesday, says the
Sentinel. Mr. Develiu takes lively
interest iu the Japanese-Hussinu war
for ho is au old uiau-of-wara man
himself, serving threo years aud three
mouths iu tho United States uuiy In
tho early 'GOs. Ho served for two
years Iu the American bast Indian
squadron and was a blue jacket on the
Sao Jacinto, a steam frigate of HI
guns and having a crew of 850 uien
and 40 mariues, and which was one
of the crack fltihting shliis of Uucle
Sam's navy. The squadron was au
dor the command of Commodore Arm
strong, who succeeded Commodore
Perry, the American ollloer who for
ced Japau to open her ports to foreign
trade aud thus paved the way for the
wonderful progress that that remark
able peoplo have made. Iu ISTiS Com
modore Armstrong called at Yokaho-
ma with his squadron having aboard
the Sun Jacinto Consul General Har
ris, the first representative of the
United States to the court of Japan,
and who was escorted toTckio by a
detachment ot marines aud blue
jackets. Mr. Develiu was not with
the urty that visited the Mikado's
capitol, but he saw much of the
Japanese aud he has great faith iu
their fighting qualities, and as sailors
he thinks that they will rank very
close to American or Iiritish tars. Of
the outcome of the present war Mr.
Develiu is of the opinion that the
Japs will be the victors.

Japanese Are Familiar With
the Country.
Iu its campaigns iu Korea and Mau-
ohuria, Japan will be fighting on its
old battle fields. Less than 10 yoars
ago a victorious Japanese army fought
its way northward np the Korean
peninsula aud then turned southward
to the capture of Port Arthur.
Iu the spring of 181M, Chiua, on the
invitation ot Korea, seut soldiers
there to suppress an insurrection.
Japan objocted and on July 25th hos
tilities began by the toriiedolug of a
transport carrying 1700 Chinese sol
diers off the Koreau coast Several
minor naval engagements followed
and August 1st war was formally de
clared. Meauwhilo both powers were
transporting troops to Korea. Japan
landed 80,000 men at Chemulpo and
10,000 at Fusan, at the extromo south
eastern point of the peninsula. Chiua
massed a force ou the northern bound
ary of Korea, at the mouth of the
Yaln river. This army then marched
100 miles south to Ping Yang. Iu
September 84,000 Chinese woro bo
sieged in that town by 40,000 Japa
nese. The place was carried by as
sault, the Cliinesa losing heavily.
A few days later a Chinese squadron
oonveylng transports to Northern
Korea, was discovered by a Japanese
fleet of about equal streutli under
Admiral Ito and was defeated after a
desperate fight in the famous battle of
Yaln river. Tho Chinese force con
sisted of two small battle ships and
six armoured cruisers, besides gunboats
and tordepdo craft. Admiral Ito had
no battlo ships, but ho had five
oruiBors, superior in power to the
Chinese vessels. The horror ot the
battlo exceeds that of any recent sea
fight The Chinese ships wore soou
disabled aud sot ou fire aud surgeons
hurried about tho decks killing the
wounded with prussio sold to save
thorn from burning alive. So eager
wero the men to bo put ont of misery
that they strotchod out their arms to
the hypodurniio needles and begged
for the injection. Five of tho Chluese
ships wore lost aud about 2000 men
wero killed. The Japanese lost 200
mon but no ships.
Aftor the capture of Ping Yang, the
Japanese pushed slowly northward
conveying their Mold guns with dilll-
oulty through the mountains. Tiny
reached tho Yalu river late in Octo
bor aud thou fought their way across
Manchuria. Meauwhilo the Mikado
had lauded 80,000 men near Port
Arthur, which was defended by a gar
risou of 20,000 Chinese. A part of
the Japanese Koreau force turned
south and helped iu tho capturo of
Port Arthur, which fell lute Iu
November. Thf rest of tho invading
army passed ou toward Niunhwang,
au Important trading city on the road
to Peklu, and ouly about 8M) miles
from tho capitol. Further to weaken
the Chinese defense, a third Japanese
force was transiiorted to Woi-hai-wei,
the naval station across the struits
from Port Arthur. This fell in Feb
ruary after a siegu and tho destruc
tion of four warships iu the harbor by
Japanese torpedo boats.
The next month China anted for
peace, liy the treaty of Shimoueseki,
tho Pekiu government guaranteed tho
dependence of Korea, cudi d lower
Manchuria to Japan aud agreed to
rny an indemnity of 120 million dot
lars. Had this treuty stood, the tires-
nt war might havo been averted.
On the pretext that Japanese occupa
tion of Manchuria vould menuuee
Korea and China, Russia insisted
that Japan cede hack the prnviuco and
accept an indemnity. Two yoars
later the Czar's forces occupied the
territory and took possession of Port
rthur. The resentment which this
action aroused iu Japan undoubtedly
helped to bring 011 hostilities this

them a pertinent illustration ol the ap

by parents as to the school lilo of thuir
children j too often allowing It to be
entirely secondary to soeliifand business
