A. E. Frye came op from Mole
creek district last week where be baa
been for several weeks working on
a mine that he and Jacob Frye and
E. A. Rath are opening op on Rogue
river three mile below the mouth
of Mole creek. They have their
property sold to Philadelphia parties
aud Mr. Frye is spending the time
here with hi family until their re
tarn from the East, which will
be neit week, when he will accom
pany them to the mine and assist in
installing the bydraolio plant that
will be pot in.
This property consists of 330 acres
of travel land through which runs
three old channel of Rogue river.
The gravel deposit is from 20 to 40
feet deep and the thorough prospect'
ing that has been done bas proven it
all to be quite rich. The coudi
tioua are perfect for disposing of the
tailings for there is a dump of 40 feet
to Rogue river, which at this point
is narrow and has a current swift
enough to keep the damp clear.
The equipment ia to be two Na 4
giants, and eaoh will have bead of
310 feet to the pipe, which will give a
terrific pressure and be heavy enoogh
to make the gravel fly like chaff in a
Kansas tornado. The water for the
giant will be brought in 26-lnoh
teel pipe from Tom East creek, where
an ample supply, by the aid of
large reseivoir which will be pot in,
can be had for the foil 12 month of
the year. This pipe will be V4' miles
long. No flame or ditch conld be
osed as the country ia so rough as to
be too exDensve to put iu a flume
aud too rockv for a ditch. The
pipe line will be carried around
mouutain side aud over spars. Water
for bywash can be had from nearby
streams at small expense.
Messrs. Frye & Rath closed their
work at the mine the first of July.
Jacob Frye returned to his home at
Big Bend, eight miles below, while
Mr. Rnth and his wife remain at the
mine aud Mr Roth will won for
the new company. They erected
dwelling boose this spring 22x36 feet,
splitting the lumber oat of logs.
So soon as the new owners arrive
they will pat a force of men at
work to install the pipe line and get

district is becoming quite large and
to secure it the business men of
Glendale have joined with the miners
to build a wagon road from Ulendale
to Mole creek. The road is now
opened to a point beyond Mt. Ken-

at work on it and will complete the

The Mendeuhall mine is located 011
the west fork of Male creek 2
miles from Rogae river. The Com

from West Fork and will be put at

transportation it is probable that
only a three stamp mill will be pot

Thomas Billings and he expects to
hare the mill iu operation within the
next three months.

Henry E. Booth, the owner of a
large tract of land on Rogue river 12
miles below this city on which he 1
both froit raising and mining suo
oessfully, was iu Granta Pass Mon
day. Mr. Booth has 36 acres to
fruit trees, 17 acre of which aretoap
pie and the remainder is to peaches,
prunes, cherries, pears, almonds and
walnuts. Most of his apple trees are
too young to bear but such as are
old enongh have a good crop. He
bas a flue yield of peaches aud will
begin next week to pick bis Early

1600 boxes. His late peaches are all

fully 1800 boxes. Mr. Booth hi
few alnioud and flg trees that are
loaded, but he ha only a few tree of
each for home use. He has some 20
Euglish walnnts. The trees are but
eight yeaia old yet each is bearing a
number of nnts aud in a couple of
years more he expects that they will
yield a good supply of not. Mr.
Booth thinks that walnuta are more
profitable thau froit trees for they
are the most hardy, tltrilty tree he
has in his orchard and tbev require
no prnning, or thiuuing of nuts a
froit has to be thinred, aud there is
not a pest that bothers them so there
is no big expense of sprsyiug, and
they will grow on laud that is not

nuts is a simple matter a compared
to picking trait of there is 110 liabil
ity to bruising and there ia no

op the nnts after they have been
shaken to the ground aud sacking
them is the extent cf the work aud of

Mr. Booth is a strong advocate of
the formation for the proposed Jose
phine Coonty Froitrgowers Union,
and will Joiu it aud will induce his
neighbors to joiu at the meeting that
is to be held in Grants Pass on Satur
day, August 6. He is of the opinion
that the Uniou will be the meais of
making fruit growing oue of the big
industries of Josephine county, for it
will force the growers to grow and

Galioe Consolidated mines. At this
season of the year and a dry one at
that, placer mines a a role are not
very interesting and it is only those
most favorably situated that are doing
any work at all.
The party, composed of O. Wood-
worth, W. T. Wyokoff, Mrs. Wyckotf
and three sons, certainly had a good
time, saw some mining going on aud
participated in mining themselves
with good results as each had some

over the prospect for the future.
After spending a few days at the

ceeding interest to tliem. Mr,
Cousin brought them up as far as
Taylor creek in the Company's hack
and then by boat through Taylor
gorge which la a trip ouequaled in

It I in evidence already that in

be two and a half times greater than

The special election held Monday
to vote on the proposition for the city
of Grauts Pass to Issue 110.000 In
bond with which to raise funds to
put in sewers on Seoond street and
ou Seventh street, resulted iu a
victory for the sower supj.orter, the
vote standing 71 for aud 2U agaiust
the bonds. The light vote was 00
casioned largely by the little oppo
sltion there was to the sewers being
built,, aud the fact that the property
qualification restricted the vote and
then so many business men who are
voters were out of the city ou their
summer vacatiou.
Each sewer will bo about a milo Iu

to arrange for the hauling oat to hi
mine of a three-stamp mill and a
Peltou wheel, which are to arrive
tlii week from Sau Francisco.
Manager Fowler ha had IU men at
work for several month doing de
velopment work and iu preparing for
installing the mill aud power. A
ditch three-fourth of a milo long ha
been completed that will briug 250
iucha of water from East Boleu
creek aud deliver it to the whet I ou-

nish ample powei for a large mill aud
Boleu creek being fed from the
mountains the water supply will con

Lumber for the mill and for other
purposes was hauled from the saw
mills near Selma to Sucker creek aud
then pecked In over the trail. A uew
tunnel is belug put in that will
strike the vein on a lower level than
