Another divideud, the aecoud in
1905, hits been declared by the Galice
Consolidated Mints Co. This piop
erty is making a remarkably good
showing, especially in consideration
of the extreme dryness of the winter.
The present energies of the company
are directed towards tho completion
of the biR Hume which will open the
bed of Ualice creek.
E. B. Brown last week discovered a
four feet vein of quarts on his home
stead some four miles north of town.
The rock carries gold but whether or
not ill paying quantities has not yet
been determined though tests to ap
proximate the values will be made.
The ledge lies in a belt of granite,
which has not hitherto been found
productive of gold bearing quartz.
J. J. Pollock of Winona, is operat
ing an nrrastro on a rich quartz vein
situated on the south side of Jump-off-Joo
crook. The oro yields good
returns in free gold, though a con
siderable portion of the values con
tained iu tho rock are in sulphurets
which the arraslru does not save.
The ledge is of small width at the
surface but seems to be widening
with depth and it is e.i(ctcd Unit
a good sized ore body will be un
covered. This ledge is in tho near
vicinity of tho Lucky Queen, the
Baby, and other good properties and
it location is very favorable for the
existeuce of a valuable property.
Copper Mine on Little Grayb&ck.
Some very handsome specimens of
copper ore were received ut the null
ing exhibit this week from tho Little
Gray back copper mines owned by W.
L. liabcock of Althouso anil located
on Grayback mountain near thu head
waters of Deer crock.
The oro carries copper nt the rate
of 174 Pr cl'Bt ""J lH'r t0"
gold. Tho ledgo shows a width of 15
feet and upwards. Thu property is
under development utid has the most
favorable indication, fur becoming a
valuable and productive luinn when
fully opened up and equipped.
Pump at Golden Drift a Success.
The Golden Drift Mining Co. com
leted the laying of their pipe Hue last
week and on Monday a trial run was
made with oue giant operated under
the force generated by tho big pump.
The test was very satisfactory and
the work of the pump was of a char
acter to indicate it has all the power
and capacity claimed for it by the
manufacturers. At the present place
of working the water is lifted about
150 feet above tho river and then has
a drop 'of about CO foot to the giants.
The lifting capacity of the pump gives
an abundant pressure.
Several days will be cousuniod iu
trial runs and iu testing and adjust
ing various portions of the niachiuery
before the mine will settle down to
steady operation. Four giants will be
used. The completion of this plant
marks the consummation of one of the
biggest placer enterprises ever at
tempted in Southern Oregon.
Closed Down for the Season.
The Bruntiier placer inino owned
by Mansfield Bros, of this city, is
shut down for this season, owing to
tho continued shortage of water.
This mine is located on the west side
of Applegato, threo miles above Ap
plegate postomco and water is had
from Keeler and Chapman creek, two
small streams that qnicMy ruu low so
soon as the rains cease. There was
water euough to enublo Mansfield
Bros, to get tho mino iu flue shape
for next season's work, when if ihcro
is the usual amount of rainfall they
can make a good cleanup as tho mine
is mostly worked and pays well.
K Mansfield has returned to Grants
Pass and resumed his work bench iu
C. St. Louis' jewelry shop. Mr.
Mansfield is one of tho most skilful
jewelers iu Grants Pass and in taking
his annual vacation instead of going
out camping during the summer season
and whilo his time away, fighting
niosquitos and otherwise killing time
iu a camp out in tho mountains, he
tubes iu tho winter and fattens on a
miner's diet and the rugged exercise
of handling a giant in a placer mine
His brother. T. II. Mansfield is a
miner by occupation and on the clos
ing of their placer mine went to work
ou quartz mining.
Machinery for Michigan Mining &
Milling Co. Arrives.
Tho first carload of machinery for
the new qaurtz mill that is being
erected by the Michigan Mining &
Milling Company at their mine ou
Applegato near Murphy, arrived in
this city Tuesday and was hauled out
to tho mine the same day by Ciipt.
J. M. Molutyre, the well known
freighter, with six of his six mole
teams, this number of teams being re
quired by tho bad condition of the
roads. Iu this shipment was an Sj
horsepower boiler, a 40 horsepower
eugiuo and a large hoisting engine
and drum. The machinery is all new
end of the best make. Two other cur-
loads of machinery are to bo received
iu a short time, ouo to bo of the
grinders for tho mill and the other of
the pumping plant.
The grinders are to be of tho In
ternational make and will have a
capacity of 50 tous of oro per day of
24 hours. These grinders cousist of a
jacket and couo fitting tho ouo around
the other and each revolving but in
opposite directions. Tho pump will
bo operated by a gasoline engine
stationed on tho bank of the Apple
gate river, from which water will he
taken, and which will be able to de
liver to the mill 170 gallons of water
por iniuute, through a 4-iuoh pipe of
lilXIO feet iu length. A largo reservoir
will bo erected in a ravine near thu
mill to hold a reserve supply of
water. It will only bo necessary to
operate tho pump during the dry
season fur during the w t season
sutliuieut water can he had from
thu adjacent ravines to supply thu re
quirements of tho mill.
Tho building and power plant is
being put iu to enable tho capacity of
tho mill to be doubled by the install
ing of a second set of rollers thus
making it possible to handle 1 00 tons
of oro por day. Tho ore from this
mine is easily milled and the develop
ment work done on the ledge shows
that there is a large quantity of It
und that it is of high grade.

Anions; the other improvement that
the Southern Pacific in niakinK for the
betterment cf railroad ecrrlco in
Southern Oregon is that of inntalliiiK
a complete Iuiir distance telephouo
system to conuect the vniioui stations
of it Oregon lines. The telephone
for the stations iu this vicinity have
arrived In Grants Pax and the crew
that is to iustall them are expected
here iu a few day to place them in
position. No delinito Information
has been received by Agent O. P.
Jester as to whether all stations or
siiliugs are to be supplied with tele
phone or whether only those stations
at which agent are stationed. But
it is the underHtiirdiiig among the
local railroad men that all stations anil
important sidings will he supplied
with telephones. Thu phones at those
places where there Is no agent, w ill
he placed in a locked box, as is done
by the inter nrlian electric line with
their telephones at tidings, the key
to whirh will he carried by train
men, track walkers and section fore
men. As to whether the telephouo
service will he carried on over the
telegraph wire of the Company or
whether a new wire will he strung,
is not known among the railroad
; men. As to whether both instru
ments can bo worked simultaneously
(in the same wire is a question on
I which the local electricians are not
agreed, but it is tho coiim'Iihu of
I opinion that separate w ires w ill be
This telephone service will he of
I great benefit to both th" railroad
l company and the public. As to when
delayed trains are duu can hi' known
at the small stations where there is
now no operator, the agent being
' some local merchant or other s roii
, who is unable to hanilln u telegraph
! instrument, hut could receive or
j send telephonic luessng's. The
!tediiusund exasperating uncertainty
of the wails at the little stations
would thus be done away w ith and
the waiting assenger would not he
compelled to walk the platform losiug
time that could otherwise be profit
ably spent. To the railroad men,
this telephone service would bo ol
great asMManco iu the handling of
trains and the reorting of damaged
track or wrecks. By the present tele
graph system a tiain is lost to the
dispatcher's office from the time it
leaves one telegraph station, until it
reaches tho next station, ami if it
fails to reach the next telegraph
Union ou time, the dispatcher ha to
await developments. On this di
vision the telegrapli tatiom are at
considerable distance from cadi other,
w nli from two to four aiuall slat ions
aud sidings between cadi. If au
engine break down or there is a
wreck, there i no way to call for
assistance except for a hrakeuiau to
walk to 'he nearest lelegiaph olti'e,
or as is frequently none, to the local
telephone office and send in his re.
port. Washouts, wr eked bridge aud
defective trackt could be more
promptly reported by track walkers
aud neetion foremen aud tiiauy delay
to train could be avoided it a tU
phono aorvice was in nsu. That a
telephouo system ha not been install
ed long aiuco by the Southern Pncillc
is not understood by the public, when
it would be of suuh advantage In
bringing a betterment to the Com
pany' trallio service, both in tho
handling of train with less delays
and less expense and in giving greater
satisfaction to the trawling public.

Itogue Hivor Valley I noted for
having more aong bird than any other
H'Ctlon of Oregon and their sweet
singing and cheery presence I one of
the pleasing attraction to all visitors
to this valley. Many of these birds
such a the robins, meadow lark and
linnet remain thu greater part of the
year, some even passing the entire
winter month here. A the farm,
orchards and town inrcease giving a
larger food supply, especially for the
fall, winter aud spring months, and
tho tree about the house and in the
orchards give more and safer places
for nesting, thu snug bird will un-
uuhtedly Increase iu number and in
variet). The mildness of the climate,
with the continuum and generous
fuod supply aud the freedom from
hail storm and torrential rains, that
iu the Kast often kill birds by the
hundreds, make Hoguo Hlver Vulley
an ideal home for birds.. Iu addition
to the native bird Homo of the song
birds i in irt oil by the Portland and
the California bird societies now
make their home here. Were the
birds not, killed by hundreds each
season by boys, cat aud wanton men,
the towns, tic his, roadsides and woods
of Hoguo Hiver Valley would bo made
to ring with tho cheery songs of these
little singers, whoso inly a-L' (1 for
recompense j a quiet nesting place
and a few seeds und insects.
The boy with the bean shooter is
the greatest enemy to the birds and
with that noiseless and deadly
win pon the hoys, especial'' those of
the towns, mako sad havoc iu killing
and maiming the 111 tlx feathered
songsters. A regular bird massacre
has .been carried oil for the past
month by boys of Grunt Pass uud i u
Saturday and Sunday, especially,
do.etis of these hoodlum are out
stealing thtough the thicket anil
timber iu the outskirts ol town
firing a pobble at every bird that
come within range ot their deadly
beanshooter. Boy with more pend
ing money at their command ate also
uut with their small rifle and air
gun and add their work In the
slaughter ol tho birds. The penalties
of boil) the law of Oregon aud the
ordinance of Grants Pas are very
stringent on bird killer and wero
these law fully enforced, many a boy
would find himself iu jail and a big
flue to pay, and thii is quite certain
to be their lato lor the slier iff, the
constable aud policemen are on tho
lookout and every boy caught by
them or reported to them, killing or
evep shooting at the bird, will be
landed In jail iu short order. It
also I against the law lor boy to
have a beanshooter aud every boy
found with one will be arrested.
lilnls are not the only thing that
suffer from the effect of the destruc
tive beau shooter, tor many a boy and
girl baa had au eye put out by a uiis
sle from these destruutlve weapons,
while the eye ol horse, cow, flog
and cat have buen eveu more tho
target for the beanshooter.
Window glass is also a favorite tar
