This week's issue of the Courier
rerrcseutfl effort under uutisoally try
ing couditicus, which made It impos
sible to do ourselves justice. For
one thing, the source from which we
were to receive town aud county
write-up copy utterly failed us; we
were short handed and no extra help
could be procured, and to make the
work more embarrassing, we are in
convenienced by building operations
which are being pushed cn both sides
of us and over our hauls aud the
Courier office itself is all torn up,
preparatory to moving. To the above
circumstances are duo the iucom
pleteneEB of descriptive matter aud
tho latuuosd of this issue.
The gambling fraternity have re
ceived a crushing blow in Portland
throogli a decision by J edge M. A.
Ueorge in. nil injunction suit btonght
by tho gamblers to rrevmt Sheriff
Word, of Multnomah county from
closing pool rooms, in which the
Sheriff w as sustained. The pool sell
ers claimed Unit as they held n license
from the city of Portland, the state
authorities could not molest them
and they further claimed that pool
selling was not gambling. Judge
Ueorge ruled that pool selling was a
form of gambling aud Unit when any
thing is wagered on an event in
which there is an element of chance
that it is gambling, and Unit no
municipality hud the legal light to
license gambling. Tliis decision by
Judge Ueorge has caused consterna
tion among tho gamblers, for with a
sheriff who dares to do his duty aud
to enforce the state laws, they realize
that Purtluud cannot longer be a
"wido open" town aud that the soft
fingered gentry, who live off other
people's earnings and give no equiva
lent in return, other (bun wrecked
lives to the victims, must now move
to plaoes where tho town und county
officials are remiss in doing their
duty aud will for town revenue or
fur personal gaiu, allow gambling to
violate the stute laws.
Oregou's delegation are to get to
Washington in ample time for the
convening of congress, which takes
place on tho fir.-t Mcuuuy in Decem
ber. Senator Mitchell left Portland
last week and Senator Fultou de
parts frcm Astoria this week as does
Congressman Williums from his home
at Priueville. Congressman Her
mann, with Mrs. Hermann, will leave
Rosebuig curly next week for Wash
ington. Oregon has a delegation ol
workers in congress aud in influence
aud In importance of committee posi
tions rank with many cf tho great
states of the East. As to the relulive
standing of the delegations of the
Paciflo Coast stutes, it is conceded
even by residents of California aud
Washington, that tho Oregon delega
tion has more inllueuco aud accom
plishes more in matters of public
policy and fcr tho good of their state
than does either of the delegations
from California or Washington, each
of which in membership is larger
thau that of Oregon. As a sequence
Oregon fares extrimely well at the
hands of tho General government
and no state in tho union, in propor.
tiou to the import aud internal revenue
yielded, receives so large appropna
tions for river and harbor improve
incuts, public buildings and other
public needs, as does this statu.
Tho best advertising investment that
has yet been niudo by Grants Pats is
that of the mineral exhibit in this
city under the auspices of the Grants
Pass Miners Association. While it
has been but a short time since it was
opened, yet it is already attracting
attention in all the mining districts
of the couutry, aud its has been the
means of causing many mining men
to visit Grauts Pass uud to become in
terested in Southern Oregon, who
would otherwise have passed this dis
trict by, for niauy persons passing on
the railroad take a stop-over aud
spend the time between trains in
viewiug tho exhibit, and tho register
shows visitors from almost every miu
iug district in the United States,
British America aud Mexico. An
hour speut in the Association room
aives a mining man a better and more
full knowledge of tin' mineral re
sources of Southern Oregon than could
be gained by a mcutlis hard travel
over the hills of this section. W hile
the exhibit does not embrace samples
of all the minerals kuowu to exist
in Southern Oregcn, nor specimens
from all the ledges aud deposits now
opened, yet It is so complete as to en
list hearty words cf commeudatiou
from such miniug men aud experts as
Patrick Clark, J. C. Porter, Dr. J.
F. Keddy, of Sjwsane. These
gentlemen, while on a recent visit to
Grants Pass, visited the exhibit and
said it was the most complete they
had ever seen in a email tewn, aud
Mr. Clark was so interested iu the
ores that he visited it the second
time. As to the class of ores, Mr.
Clark stated that showiug was good
and that it indicated that Southern
Oregon was a rich and important
mineral district. Though all other
forms of advertising miy have tf
be dropped for the time being to meet
the expeusesof the mineral exhibit, that
should be kept cp as it will
bring more returns thau any other
meant of publicity tint Grants Par
could adopt to osh the mining in

TO TEST PROHIBITION VOTE
Action Before Judie Hsnna In
The legality of the election in Jack
son county upon the question of
prohibition will be tested in the
courts. Saturday, while the official
canvass was being made, protests
wero filed against nine precincts in
the county by C. B. Watson and E.
J. S. McCallister, attorneys for the
anti-saloon people, alleging that the
election in these precincts was illegal,
iu that persons not living in these
precincts had voted therein upon the
prohibition question. The nine pre
cincts involved were North and South
Medford, Gold Hill, North and South
JacLsonville, Eagle Point, Apple
gate, Taleut aud Barrou.
The saloon forces by their attorneys
Wm. M. Colvig and W. L Vawter
iil.d a protest covering every pre
.inct iu tho county. The saloon peo
ple base their contention upon the
same grounds as do their opponents,
aud in addition will bring up the
poiut as to whether the local option
law, being a general law has repealed
or superceded the special law, enact
ed by the legislature in giving cities
jnil towns jurisdiction in theraatter of
grunting liqnot license.
The matter came up before Judge
llai.na on Wednesday and as taken
otidir advisement. Judge Hauua not
heiug fully satisfied that his court
had jurisdiction to grant the injunc

Thursday Judge Uanna decided that

What the Miners Are Doing.
Douglas Houghton, a mining man
from Redding, is in Grants Pass,
looking over the mineral resources of
this district, being attracted here by
the favorable reports of Southern
Oregon that aro now to be heard In
all the miuiug districts of the West.
C. E. Piatt, who with Albert
b'oepp is developing a group of five
claims whicli they have located on
Bolan creek, near where that stream
joins Sucker creek, was in Grants
Pass Monday. Mr. Piatt stated that
their ledge was showiug op well
aud they had every prospect of hav
ing a property that would yet be
valuables While here, Mr. Plttt
met W. E. Smith, a former neigh
bor of his in Eugene, who had come
in trv his luck this winter iu tiros-
peeling aud he accompanied Mr. Piatt
to Sucker creek district where he
will locate a claim.
W. P. Dobson, who with Nell Bar-
nett owus the Tobacco group of
claims in the Briggs district, is iu
Grauts Pass to speud a week. Messrs.
Dobson & Harnett have closed their
development work for this season, bat
early next spring will again goto
their claims and put iu several mouths
in opening up their ledges, which
show good vulnes and have every iu
dioaiion of proving profitable proper
ties. Mr. Dobson states there are
now more thau HO claims taken in the
Briggs distiict and that next summer
that district will be the scene of great
activity in nnniug operations.
W. I. Dowell, owner of the Sugar
Pine ledge on the right fork of Galioe
creek, is iu Grants Pass to remain a

has becu doing considerable develop

considerable value. Having other

Mr. S. Case, owner and manager of
the Oro Kino mine ou Jump-off-Joe,

Portland mining capitalist of Port
land, acquired the Oro Fino gronp of

systematic development aud helms

fall to install a cyanide sysetm and
expeuts to -have it completed ai.d
iu operation within the next two
months, when he will bo able to
handle M) tons of ore pel day. The
tanks aro of red cedar and of the most
substantial build. The ore will be
crushed by a Stur.lovaut roller ma
chine. This is a new ore crusher to
Southern Oregon mines aud is said to
be a decided improvement over bat
tery crushers now iu use, as It allows
no rock to pass through larger than
nun-fourth inch in diameter thus
giving a uniform size to the rock for
iho stamps. These crushers are dust
less, another good feature. A 40
horsepower boiler and engine fur
nishes power for the mill while a
small separator engine supplies
power for tho hoist and pumps. It
is probable that later water power
will bo utilized as ample water can
be had from Junip-o-ff-Joo. Mr. Case

of rook, selected from various sectiou
of the ledges, were brought in and
