PORTLAND MONEY IN MINES
Residents of That Cllv Interested
" in Large Properties.
Despite the fact that Portland co
ple have been accused, of being luke
warm in the matter of encourage
ment and 'investment in mining prop
erties, it ia known that the uiouey
pat iutq ventures by them during the
past 25 yeara has amounted to hun
dreds o! thousands of dollars. Many
of them, too, have been caught in
wildcat ventures, and made to bo
lieve that a welldevi loped mine ex
isted, whereas there was ouly a pros
pect hole. Portland people have in
vested much capital in mining-stocks,
grab-staked hundreds of prospectors,
and some of the largest euterpriece iu
Southern Oregon were developed and
are owned and operated by residents
of this city. Portland capita! has
boeo taken in more tlinn once, and
money lias been risked in legitimate
mining enterprises, that brought in
no returns. Men cannot be expected
to invest their capital iu enterprises
nnlees there is a probability of get
ting some returns, b for mining matt
be conducted on a legitimate basis,
the same as iu auy other line,
Portland capitalists were among
the Brat to develop and put iu expen
sive equipments to Work the highland
gravel deposits iu Southern Oregon.
Up to loss than 30 years ago, all the
placer mining of Oregon was done
along the crook and river beds in a
more or less primitive way ground

sluicing or picking and shoveling in
to the sluice boxes. The deep 'gravel
beds high up on the ridges above the
beds of the streams had never been
touched. Au Euglish company, of
London, was the first to install a
plaiit for working the npland placers
in the Galice district in Josephiue
county. Before its long ditches were
completed and its powerful giants for
washing the gravel were in position,
Caption A. P. Aukeny, of Port laud,
had tho Blue. Gravel Company or
ganized an1 began operations on a
ridge across tin creek from the En
glish company. Associated with Cap-
taiu Aukeny were J. V. and Vinceut
Cook, M. S. Burrell, D. P. Thompson
and others. It was the beginning of
hydraulic placer mining in Southern
Oregou, and it cost niauy thousands of
dollars to dig the loug ditches and to
equip the ntiuf with pipe, giants,
bedrock flume, eto. There were no
roads Into the Galice Creek district iu
those days, and the supplies were all
taken in on pack animals. TI13 heavy
giants were transported to the mines
by being loaded on a lizard, a sort of
sled made from the forks ef an oak
tree. It was dragged along the
moautaiu trail with horses, where
au accidental slip wonld have pre
cipitated the load into the bottom of
the Rogue river canyon. The lumber
for thn flumes aud building purposes
was all whipsawed by hand a big
log-was lolled and propped np over
a pit, and 0110 man stood on the top
of the log holding one end of the saw,
and tho other was hold by another
workman who stood ou the ground
below. The log was lined and mark
ed, and had to be icut to scartch to
produce cven-Bized boards. Rose
burg was then the torniinus of the
railroad, where the passengers boardod
a six horse stage- coach and paid 16
cents per mile to ride to Grants Pass,
with tho privilege of walking over
the bad stretches of roads. Iu spite
of these difficulties, Captain Aukeuy
spent much of his time at the mine,
aud Vincent Cook often remained for
two or Hires months at a time. The
other interested parties made oc
casional visits to the srenn of opera
tions. These parties Inter sold the
Blue Gravel, and the Aukneys and
Cooks became owners of the famous
Sterling mine, near Jacksonville. Tbe
development of the Blue Gravel gave
hydraulic placer mining a start in
Sontheru Oregon and a number of
these upland placers are the. best pay
For several years past, L. A. Lewis,
of Allen & Lewis, has operated an
extensive placer mine ou Grave
Creek, iu Josephine county. It coat
thousands of dollars to dig miles of
ditches aud bring water on the gioond
and equip the mino. Where opera
tions were began ou the low gronud
there was no dump, but this difficulty
was obviated by building an expen
sive elevator that carried the water,
gravel and rock to an elevated dome-
way. Tho ground has been washed
away for a half mile further np the
creek, but the elevating apparatus
is not now needed.
A few miles further down Grave
Creek, John W. Lewis, a brother of
L. A., operates another extensive
placer proposition that cost a small
fortune to equip. Telegram.

OREGON MAN DIDN'T BITE
Look Out for European Schemer
You May Be the Next Victim.
Tbe Spanish prisoner, that ancient
brother to the gold brick aud Euro
pean relative of the American bunko
man, having grown a little stale on
the other side of the water has takru
to working ou the cupidity of people
on the ;Pacifio Slope. W. J. Wittier,
President aud Manager of the Peep
Gravol Mining Company of Waldo,
Ore., w'as selected as a possibly easy
victim, who was besides possessed of
sufficient money, to make him easy.
But Sir. Winter was not 10 easily
The usual programme was carried
out according to precedent of the
people on tho other side. The prison
er was dying iu a Spanish dungeon.
He had ftfil.OOO deposited iu a Lon
don bank, but the portmanteau iu
which the certificate of deposit was
hidden iu a secret pocket had been
seized by the Spanish authorities.
This money lie would bequeath to Mr.
Wimur along with his daughter if
only it could bi recovered. By the
next mail came a letter from a con
fident ml friend announcing the death
of the prisoner and inclosing his will
uuder which Mr. Wlmor was made
guardian of the derelict daughter aud
he was bequeathed 3U,000 if he
could got It.
The process of getting the mouey
was simple. All that was necessary
waa to prove tho will and get possess
ion of tho prisoner's effects, including
tho portmanteau. The confidential
friend knew where to find the. secret
pocket, and would take from it the
certificate of deposit lo be forwarded
But and hero crimes the snare it
was necessnry to send X:il to pay the
costs of conrt. Iu the following let
ter the dying prisoner wrote to Mr.
'Wimer, whom he claimed ai au un
expected relative, aud described tho
process by which he became, possessed
of the 30,000:
"Castle Fort of Valencia, September
1804. Mr. T. Wimcr-My dear
Relative: Having not the honor to
know yoa but for the references
which my dear wifo, Mary Wimer,
jour relative, gave me, who, mention
ing tho individuals of our family,
praised the honesty and good qualities
that distinguish you, I address my
self to you for the first time (and
perhaps the last oue, considering tho
grave state of my health), explaining
to you my sad posllio.i and requesting
your protection for my only daughter,
your niece, 15 yours old, whom I keep
as a pensioner iu the college of Santa
'As I am strictly watched by my
enemies, I hope you will reveal to
nobody the most Insignificant detail
of tliis letter. Ileing a secretary and
treasurer of Mr. Martinez Campos In
the late war of Cuba, and deserving
tho conditions of such an illustrious
gentleman, placing my capital In pub
lic funds transactions so that I might
make a brilliant position for my
daughter, whom I ever loved with
passion slnco when her mother died.
Now my fortune increased fast, and
I would have been happy had my
protector continued to tho end of the
campaign. No sooner was he replaced
b y Gem nil Weyler than my misfor
tune presented itself, as I could Lot
succeed in making him comply to
Spain, and, not being in my powtr to
seo Cuba ruled by an adversary
politic, I joined the rebellion iu be
half of the republic; but. as we were
victims of tlio greatest treason, I was
obliged to emigrate to Kuglish
ground, taking along with uin my
money, valued at 3,000. After
having resided tome time In Loudon
I received the sad news that my wife
had died, leaving my dear daughter
iu despair and without help in this
sad situation. I found myself in the
necessity of coining to Spain to help
my daughter and bring her In my
company to your country.
"Before starting, considering it Im
prudent to take along with mo this
respectahlo sum of money, I decided
to place it iu tho Lomloa bank against
a siiecial contract and only us a do
posit, as it apears in the security
document payahlii to the bearer that
the bank gave mo as a guarantee,
which document I hid ill Hie hollow
of my portmanteau."
After tho decease of the sopposit iou
prisoner, tho daughter wrote to Mr.
Wimer, enclosing her photograph and
consenting to come to his homo in
Oregon. Mr. Wimer, finding himself
heir to au unexpected daughter and a
fat soiu of money, enclosed the whole
correspondence to "The Kxaminer. "
Tho game is as old as the gold brli k,
but it still woiks among people whose
copidity is stronger th in their sense.
PLACEOF MINING ROMANCE
Denver Taper Speaks Well ol
Southern Oregon Writer.
When the literary history of
America is written a hundred years
hence, the commentator will point
with emphasis to the many
volumes upon his shelves that have
drawn their inspiratou from life and
events of the mining regions of the
West at a time when tho Rocky
Mountains represented the extreme
frontier of civilization. Those who
s-ek to get iu touch with tho manners
and feelings of the people who then
inhabited the wilds aud first brought
its commanding resources into the
commercial channels of the older
commonwealths will find themselves
directed to the worka of the imagina
tive wtiters who pictured the condi
tions existing during this important
period in the nation' progress. The
.hallowed memory of those who filled
this niche in the country's gallery of
lettered tuou will loud impetus to the
aspiratious of others who have found
new books to write aud new civiliza
tious to paint.
To be able to set forth iu romance
the regional story of men and women,
whether they be nature's rough pro
duct or the more polished social gums
of cultured surrouudings, one most
dwell amoug them aud drink of the
sumo dretms and emotions. They
must be portrayed at first hand. Bret
Harte, the laureate of mining camp
fiction and verso, taught school among
the subjects of his muse. Murk
Twain spent yeara in tho mlnlug re
gions, and it is said that the world
nearly lost him In the vicinity of
Virginia Cily, when ho barely es
caped becoming a millionaire aloug
with Fair, Mackay aud others.
Denuia II. Stovall, oue of The
Record's special correspondents, is
typical of that charmiug class of men
who sottlo down iu a province and
imbibe, the scutimcuta and interests of
its citizens in order to translate them
into language, for the entertainment
aud profit of others. The Record has
published mauy of his short stories
sent out from his literary soat in
Southern Oregou, and doubtless its
subscribers have fult the same enjoy,
uient in reading them that its editors
hare in setting them iu print. We
therefore take pleasure in calling at
tention to a new book from his pen,
which comes in the same delightful
strain as his "Talcs of Old; Tales of
Gold." Tho story Is entitled "Sus
anna of Korbyville," and deals with
imagined evonta iu the old mining
town of Kerbyvlllo, "fifty yeara ago
Kerbyvllle "at the foot of the pine-
clad hills, with its ono loug street,
and overlooking the winding river and
the valley of the Illinois." Sometime
within a year The Record has repro
duced a picture of the. old towu hall,
with Its weather boarding partly
gone, for the town, throgli practically
deserted, is still tliora as a reminder
of tho time, when Kerbyvllle "ex
changed more 'dust' than any other
mining camp north of Sail Francis
Mr. Stovall's story deals largely
with tho Indian war of IBM, whcrolu
we find the prospector wlht his bag of
nuggets, the district sheriff and the
proprietor of the inevitable gambling
house and saloon, aud there is a pretty
romaneo iu the foreground to give the
picture perspoctivo and propor dimen
The author has done a great deal
toward advancing thn mining Inter
ests of Southern Oregou by means of
his ever-ready account of the latest
"strike" aud "clean-up. " It will not
be surprising if ho does just as much
for tho social history of that wonder-
ful region, resourceful not ouly Iu

The Natural Influence of Ilia
Present day psychology aud medi
cine ara full of notices and treatises
upon the power of suggestion. Has
it never occurred to the observer that
this (lower of suggestion to the drink
er's appetite Is 0110 of the chief evils
of tho open saloon? Tho drinking
man says: "I cannot pass an open
saloon, as soou as I see it, I must go
A philosopher lias said: "We do
not so much iKisaess our ideas as they
possess ok" There li a large
measure of truth Iu this assertion.
A little child bumps its head.- Rut
Its mother says: "That did not
hurt," aud the baby refrains from
crying. Suggestion has, in mauy
raws, almost, if not qulto, a hypuotio
power. Burgeons tell a patient the
operation will not be painful, and he
endures It without au anaesthetic.
Wise physicians often cure disease by
uggestlou. Many a modern mlraolo
of healing is eiplalued by Its potency.
It is powerful to overcome cold, heat,
thirst all bodily affections.
Now, remembering the basic sus
ceptibility of human nature to sug
gestion, think of the power upon the
diseased nerves of the Inebriate of u
row of saloons on the street side by
which he passes. A confirmed tobac
co user, in many cases of temporary
deprivation of Ills narcotic, cannot
(lass aV'igar store how much greater
the temptation wheu every tiler of
the poor drunkard's being cries for
strong drink with the cry of the
vampire, "give, give."
We owe it, as lovers of our kind,
to banish saloons, so that our diseasid
brothers ma) be saved, if possible,
from the power of drink suggestion.
