The incident of the sinking of Eng
lish fishing vessels by the Russian
Baltio fleet in the North sea is by no
means closed. The report of the Rus
sian admiral has only served to com
plicate matters. He claims that the
fleet tired on torpedo beats advancing
to attack the Russian vessels. This
statement is very generally ridicnled
and the supposition is that the Km
elnn imagination was so invigorated
by tear that it was able to make
torpedo boats ont of any harmless
croft that might be In its course.
The Russian fleet has received ordnrs
to lemain at Vigo, Bpaiu, until after
the official investigation of the affair,
British war vessels are ready for
action iu case of possible necessity.

THE NEW CHANNEL MINES
Placer Enterprise Inauiur&tod
on Lower Roivit River.
It hns for some time been evident
that Grants Pass and Josephine county
need more advertising, but the funds
for this purpose have not been appar
ent. Tho Courier, however, has de
cided to co-operate with the Miners'
Association, the Board of Tiade and
the business nieu, in putting oat a
special Issue, devoted to advertising
the resources and advantages of
Grants Pass and Josephine connty.
The organizations will furnish the
copy for the descriptive articles and
the papor on which the issue Is to be
printed. The Courier will do the
rest and will put out as many copies
as the material furnished by the or
ganizations will make. It will be a
Thanksgiving issne of 12 pages, with
handsonio illustrated covers and the
dcscrlptivo articles will be Illustrated
with half tone outs.
One of the newer enterprises In the
Josephine county mining field is the
"New Channel" placer, operated by
H. F. Sclioenfcld and J. E. Verdln
The mine Is located on the south side
of Rogue river, just opposite the Win,
Crow ranch, some five miles above
Galice. It comprises 120 acres of
placer ground carrying good values.
The gold is coarse and heavy, ranging
from ti and IS piece s down to small
particles. The deposit is similar to
that of the famous Old Channel mine
or Royal group of Galioe. A 100 foot
dump Into Rogue river is one of the
ine mine is wen equipped with a
good hydranlio plant ol medium caiia
oity, with a No. 9 giant and 1000 teet
of lOlucli pipe. A ditch t'-i miles in
length has been completed, furlahirig
an abundant water supnlt. New
buildings, bunk houses, blacksmith
hop, etc., have been erected.
One of the most interesting features
is a 400 foot cable stretched across
Kogue river, fitted with cars for the
transportation of freight and passengers.

James J. Jeffries, the world famous
pugilist, was here on Monday with
the Davy Crockett company, whick
played at tho opera house on Monday
evening. The house was filled to
overflowing. Jofferles is not an actor
of as much ability on the stage as he
is in the prize ring, yet be perfotnis

hearted backwoodsman, very cred
itably. The play is perfectly olean
and free from any objectionable fea
tures and the show would be a pop.

which is given by the personality of
Jeffries, the central figure.
After the play, Jeffries boied three
short rounds with his sparring part
nnr, Joe Koui.edy. Kennedy is a big
fellow also with arms as big aa a
stove pipe. They gave an honest ex
hibition, giviug and taking some re
sounding thwacks that roused the en
thusiasm of the audience.

portions, strong and solid appearing
as a pillar of stone. He is quite good

He has the round head of the glad I a

the traditional "prize fighter's mug"
were happily disappointed.

The Courier staff is augmented thl
week by tho addition of Chas. Me
servo, lately of the Jacksonville Son
tinol, who will be with ns as reporter
and solicitor for the Conrtor. Mr.
Meservo's superior ability as a news
paper niau la well known throughou
Southern Oregon and aa a writer and
newsgatherer lie has very few equals
in the Southern Oregon field. The
Courier staff and force now comprises
the following persons In their rcspeo
tive capacities i A. E. Voorhies, pro
priotor and manager; Fred Meuscl
editor; Chas, Mesurve, reporter and
solicitor; II. V. Meade, foreman; Miss
Maude Ruber, machine operator ; Fred
Smith, prossman. The generous sop
port of the Courier by Grants Pass
and Josephine county, for which we
thank tho public, shows that the peo
pie appreciate the value of a paper
which is roliublo, fair, clean and
which gives the news.
The city council has lately been
severely criticised by a Grants Pass
paper for spending so much niouoy on
bridges and the idea was convoyed
that there had boon serious niisniau
agemuut in this regard. This li
not tho caso. Good, substantial work
hns been done, which is of course
more oxpoualve at the outset, but far
chenper in the end. The present
council, beginning tho year in the
period of high water whioh displaced
to many of tho "cheap" bridges of
tho past, has aimed at permanency
in its restoration of the structures.
As the principal trouble has bouu
from the cuttiug of tho banks of the
two creeks which run through town,
a troublo caused by tho peculiar
nature of tho gran I to soil, the council
has made use of cement and itone
abutments to remedy this evil The
M streot arch has cost more than a
wooueu nriiigo, out will outlast a
nuiulicr of such structures It is not
reasonable to suppose that tho council
would deliberately speud the public
money lu a foolish manner. They are
taxpayers and pay from their own
pockets iuto tho public fund. Mom
bors of tho city council serve Without
pay and it must ofteu appear to them
that they are eugaged iu a thankless
task. When they do good work let
them be commended for it.
REGISTRATION IS SMALL
Less Number Than L&st Year

The city registration books were
closed on Tuesday evening. The
registration this year ia small, falling
below that of last year. One rca.on
of this Is that there was some con
fusion among some of the voters re
gardiug slate and city registration,
some who have registered at the
conrt house considering that sufficient
for all puriwses. Indifference and pro
crastination, however, are probably
the principal causes whereby the

The proclamation was issued from
the State Department Tuesday after
noon by Secretary Hay. It follows
By the president of the Unl
States A Proclamation:
It has pleased Almighty God
bring the American people in rafety
and honor through another year, a
in accordance with the loug nubmk
custom handed down to ns by
forefathe-s, the time has come when
special day shall be sot apart in which
to thank Him who holds all nations
in the hollow of His hand for tin
mercies thus vouchsafed to us. Di
log the century and a quarter f ou
National life we, as a people, ha
been blessed beyond all others.
for this we owe humble and heartfelt
thanks to the author of all blessings.
The year that has closed has been
one of peace within our own bord
as well as between ns aud nil other
nations. The harvests have beeu
abundant, and those who work
whether with baud or brain,
prospering greatly. Reward
waited upon honest effort. We ha
neon enabled to do our duty to ou
selves and to others. Never has there
beeu a time when religious and
charitable effort has been more ev
dent. Much has been given to ns and
much will be expected from us.
Wo speak of what has been done
this Nutiou iu uo spirit of boustfu
uoss or vanity, but with full aud
reverent realization that our strengt
is as nothing unless we are helped
from above. Hitherto we have been
given the heartiest strength to do the
tasks allotted to us as they severally
arose. We are thankful for all that
has beeu done for us in the past, an
we pray that in the futuro we may
strengthened iu the unending strnggli
todoonr duty fearlessly and honestly,
with charity and good will, with re
spect for onrselves aud with love to
ward our fellowmen.
lu this great Republic, the e ffort
to combine National strength with
personal freedom is being tried ou
scale more gigantic than ever before
in the world's history. Our success
will mean much not onlv for our
selves, but for the future of all mn
kind; aud every man or woman
our land should feel the grave
spousibility resting upon him or her,
for in the last analysis this success
must depend upon the high average
of our individual citizenship, nnnn
the way in which each of us does I
doty by himself and his neighbor.
Now, therefore, I, Theodoio Roose
volt, president of the United States,
do hereby appoint and set ana
lhursday, the 24th day of this No
vember, to be observed as a day of
festival and thanksgiving by all the
people of the United States at home
or abroad, aud do recommend that oo
that day they cease from their ord
naiy occuintions, aud gather in their
several places of worship or in the!
homes, devoutly to sive thanks
Almighty God for the benefits he has
conferred upon us as individuals aud
as a Nation, and to beseech him that
in the future His diviue favor may be
continued to ns.
In witness whereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused tlm seal of

Hallowe'en nn tho 30th and 31.-1 of
October, nod were at tin ir usual
Riimes. Let them enjoy themselves.
Peter Miller and family havo niovtd
to the hop ranch owned by John
Riuznu near Grants Pass, ihey were
tendered a surprise party on I he even
ing of October 2iltli.
LaBt week we imagined that the
Russo-Japanese were making a left
turn with their left wiug extending
to Kerby. People looked for cover
and when the fusi lade ceased, it was
discovered that the trouble was due
to drunks at the saloon. They shot the
g 'soliue lights ont, and had a rough
and tumble fight iu the dark. It is
said that this saloon is notorious for
selling liqnnr to drunks and having a
gambling table operating nt any hour.
We may wake up gome day to find a
member of somo family a corpse or
worse still, some bright oyed, promis
