"Ding! ding! dingl"
It was the engineer's bell sounding
tho alarm in the hoisting room to
"down cago." We stopped aboard the
uarrow platform that hung by a leng
cable at the collar of the dark shaft.
Then one of the miners who accom
panies ns closed a little gate, and we
were penned in like cattle on a ferry.
Instantly the platform dropped
from nudcr us, and we two tender
feet grasped wildly about as for
something to clutch. The first thing
I fouud was my stomach. A rugged
minor gave a very loud aud most un
prntty laugh, as if amused at our dis
comfort. We had gone op aud down
on elevators before, and swift ouei at
that, but never before had we been
dropped from under our hats. Two
good breakfasts came very .nearly
being spoiled right there.
"Klickorl flickor! flicker I"
And every flicker was a statiou
lighted by elcctrio globes, and every
statiou was 100 feet none of your 13
foot stories iu a . skysotapi r. We
were going down into a ml 110," one of
the very biggest mines iu the state of
Down, down, dowu, we went, 100,
200, 300, 400, aud on to TOO aud finally
en me. to a stop with a Blow jerk, just
as a boat docs when run ngaiust a
mud bank. We were at the 800 foot
level. Here tho gatu was opened aud
wo ecrnpibled out of the cage, two at
1 ant very glad the trip wus over.
It was 7 o'clock in tho morning and
we had come dowu with the first of
tho day shift. The lower level is
manned first, then the otie aboie, and
so on till all are mi'iiued for the day
Through tho kindness of the shilt
Loss, a great big man, with lantern
jaws una steel gray eyes, we were
showr, through the mine. He gavo us
each a candlo and a miner's candle
stick, and led the way. We took a
candlestick, with its hook aud Bharp
beak, held it out before us and fol
lowed. The boss turned on us aud
That s not tho way to hold a
stick I That was tho way you car
ried one when you went upstairs
to bed several years ago, but it won't

your thumb through the loop, throw

We did as commanded and followed
dowu the black gloom of a tuuuel.
The first sensation that creeps
through the beiug of a tenderfoot,
aud stirs up the muddy depths of Ills
soul, ou his first visit into a mine, is
the foar that tho timbers above his
head may break and lot tho mountain
down on him. Thou, there are loug
stretches in the drifts whero there are
no timbers at a!( just harrows iu the
rock. The tenderfoot cannot holp
treading cautiously, afraid that if
lie lets his foot dowu too severely
something might bo jarred loose, and
down would come the mountain, and
out would go his light. By and by
he ventures the suggestion, meant
also as a question :
"Wouldn't it be awful if these Mm-
burs should break and the tunnel
"Naw", says tho boss, Willi tho
promptness of one who knows. "We'd
never feel fK. it would be just like
puttiu' your foot down on a spider."
On the floor of tho tunnel Is a small
stool track, like a tiny railroad, and
frequently a dnli roar, that increased
to a rumbling thunder, catiio from
ahead, aud wo stepped asidn to let an
ore car pass. The tracks wind and
curve about, with hero and there a
switch or a crossing, whero other tun
nels on tli" hiiuio level, cross und
lead to other parts bf tho mine.
Near one of the oro chutes, which
had "No. XIII, Level 8" tackod In
brass letters on tho spout, tho boss
mounted a ladder that led aloft into
tho gloom. We clambered after him
and came suddenly into a wide slope
whero many miners wero already at
work. Tho stupe set at nn angle of
about 45 degrees, representing tho dip
of the vein, and had a height, or
width between walls, of about five
"Pink I pink! pink!" sounded
tho regular blows of the jacks on the
drills. Aud away off from tho end of
the stipo came Uin wild clatter of nn
air drill, and others followed suit
from the drift below us.
All through the dark depths of the
stopo the caudles flicker like so nmny
stars, revealing by each tho swarthy
face and muscular form of a miner.
With his sleeve rolled back, and his
arm bare to tho elbow, he swings the
jack to and fro, striking tho drill
with unbroken regulnrily, und driv
ing it deeper and deeper into the
hard quartz. Near by, his caudle, in
its stick, clings by the hook to a jag
ged piece of lock.
The holes, an inch or more in
diameter, are driven into the tough
quarti to a depth of 13 or IS
inches. The giaut powder, at "shot
time" and at the close of ' the shift
does the rest.
Frequently the mucker comes with
a load or sharpened drills from the
blacksmith shop above, dropping
them with a ringing rattle at the
foot of the slope and gathering up a
load of dulled ones to return.
The ore here, as in nearly all Ore
gon mines, is removed by overhand
sloping, the miner working from be
low upward. As the stopes are work
ed out, they are timbered firmly, by
driving stalls eight or teu luetics in
diameter between tho walls. These
timbers are cnt the right size and
length before beiug brought down.
We finally found our way back to
the station level, aud in a momeut
the shaft cage dropped down through
"This is a dooble-compartinont
shaft," said the boss to us, with a
quizzical din lie, "and there is a lad
der running up you can climb if you
prefer. It's perfectly safe."
Climb 800 feet up a slippery ladder 1
Not (hat day I No, wo would go
up iu the hoist, even though we died
in tho attempt. We bung up our
candles aud stepped aboard, instlnu
tivuly caressing our waistbands. The
boss pave tho signal and up we shot.
Tho going up wns not as bad as the
going down, but wo wore almost

our bodies dnring the swift aacout

Dr. Wrll. Flanagan of Grants Pass,
who camo to Portland Sunday to se
cure special treatment for his wife,
is well-known in tho milling indus
try in Josephine county. Recently
ho sent an agent to Sucker creek to
investigate the Briggs mine and ad
jacent territory. The mine has been
secured under a bond salo contract by
au Ashland man, formerly a miuer iu
Alaska. It is understood that the
consideration was $100,000, and that
ho paid tho Briggs family f 1 0,000
siot cash aud is to pay the balance of
the purchase price iu installments as
tho gold is taken out.
"From what my ogent reported,"
says Dr. Flanagan, "thero is nearly
fiO.OOO in sight lu the mine. The
new owner lias gone to work in a
rational way and is sloping and sink
ing a shaft. The amouut that the
Briggs laiuily took out of the mine
with jack knives and a pick before
they sold the property is variously
estimated at from I15.0U0 to 10,000.
Nobody but themselves and their
hanker know just bow much it was. "
Thete aru now about ,100 men pros
pecting iu the district aud other
strikes are expected. It is known
that Grayback mountain, ou winch
the Briggs mine is located, is heavily
miucralixcd, and for years a man
named King has been working a rich
quartz mine on the California side of
tho in untain, supposed to bo a
branch of the same rein.
"I am still inclined to bclicvu It is
a true vein," says Dr. Flanagan,
"aud if it proves to be such this dis
trict will become one of the big min
ing camps. "

To the Hnguo Itiver Courier,
tor 101110 time past I have seen
long articles iu our state and county
papers iu regard to the making of
good, permanent roads, all of which
is highly commnnduble and if
properly carried out on the lines
spoken of by those who have bad ex
perience in such work iu the older
fates, would In a few years give
Orcgoa highways to brag about, but
just so long as peoplo are permitted
to male irrigating ditches of our
county woods and build houses upon
what has boon county roads for the
past AO years, wo mav safely conclude
that Oregon will be out of tho race
for good roads to the end of the
Home few years ago, all the work
done in district A aud 7 was put iu
no the road hetwoen the Holland and
Gates ranches and extending north
westerly to the old Bone ranch. To
day you can scarco see whore the
roadbed was on the southern aud
worst part of where the road ought
to he. Why is this? Because the
waters of Sucker creek and Qualvania
gulch is conveyed lu ditches there
from to the several ranches oil the
route tu the Beach and Platter rauch,
where, finding nn outlet it accumu
lates and forms a large swamp, the
spur of the mountain breaks down to
the uortbw's', forming a big water
shed during the wluter season, makes
this section of the county road almost
impassable for several months out of
Ihe 12, and I woudor that our
citizens tlo not suffer with very
much more sickness than they do,
through living so near a swamp.
Now this could be easily remedied
by putting iu culverts under tho road
bed to carry tho surplus water
through to tho Platter ranch, where
it would find a natural outlet Into the
gulch proper, thence dowu to where
we see the smaller streams enter
Althouse and Sucker creeks below.

effort being made by the proper
officers to enforce this anti-gambling
