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 the mine teady for piping this win ter. The Mole criek d strict I con nected with the outside world by a trail to West Fork ou the Southern Pacific, a distauoe of 32 mile and to Gold Beach, on the ooast, 48 miles distaut A tri-weekly mail, by horse back, passe over this route, the postofflce for this district being Marial located at the month of Mole creek. All light freight Is packed iu from West Fork, but heavy freight is brought from Wedderburn at the month of Rogne river, up that stream by gasoline launches to the month of the Illiuoi nver. From there to Mule creek the river ia too swift and shoal In place for launches and the freight is brought op that IA mile section on small boats that are lowed over the rapids by men 00 the bank aud by others in the boat push ing with poles. The trade of this 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- ben aud Gleudale ha a force of men at work on it and will complete the toad to Dutch Henry's corrall, on Little Meadow. From that point the miners will extend it 00 to Mole creek, a distance of 24 mile, while it i 14 mile from Little Meadow to Glendale. The route from Little Meadow to Mole creek will be on the divide between Rogoe river aud west fork of Cow creek, and being through the open woods and no can- von or stream to cross will be easily opened and at small expense. la com pored witn otner ooutnern Oregon roads. The larger part of the expense for opining this road will be borne by Mendeuhall & Company, of Gold Hill, who are developing a quarts mine 00 Mole creek. The Mendeuhall mine is located 011 the west fork of Male creek 2 miles from Rogae river. The Com tnny has a force of men at work and have 300 feet of tunneling that ha opened op a foor foot vein of rich rock. The machinery for a sawmill ia now being taken by pack train from West Fork and will be put at the mine aud cpeiated by a turbine wheel with water from .Mule creek. A soon a lumber can be cot the boilding for a stamp mill will be erected. Owing to the difficulty of transportation it is probable that only a three stamp mill will be pot in now. The work ia io charge of Thomas Billings and he expects to hare the mill iu operation within the next three months. At Big Bend a company of Min neapolis aud BL Paol capitalist have bought 230 acre of rich placer ground and for some time past have bad from 10 to 15 men at work pre paring for the installation of a big bydraolio plant The water will be brought a distance of foor miles from Foster creek, two of which will he by flame and two br ditch. The stream will be 18 inches deep and foor feet w ide and the water will go to two No. 4 giant coder a bead of 300 feet. The piping will be brought op the river in launches aud row boats, but the supplies and light freight will be packed io from West Fork and Glen dale. A small sawmill is being ereoted to cot the lumber for the flume and for buildings. The old Mark placer, located at the month of Mole creek, and which baa been one of the big gold producer of Lowes- Rogoe river. Is now the property of H. J. Mattoon, former merchant of Riddle. This mine is equipped with two giants and get water from Mule creek by a ditch i mile long. Mr. Mattoon since be made his clean-op this spiing baa been at work blasting a race through the rimrook to give a dump In Rogue river from the old back ohannel that he will work this next season. Mr. Fry stated that there were many prospectors in tue mute creex district and some promising claims are being developed. He thinks it will become one of the biggest min ing district of Southern Oregon. This district will eventually become tributary to Grants Paa by the electric railroad that Is certain to be boilt down Rogoe river fro-n this city. With this railroad in operation large trade will oonie to Grants Pass from Mole creek, as well ai from Galice and Piokett creek dia tricts, through which the road woold FRUIT AND NUT TREES PROFITABLE INVESTMENT Henry Booth Make Money From His Orchard-Thinks Walnut Good Fruit Plant.

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 Ciawfords, of which lie will have 1600 boxes. His late peaches are all Salwavs aud of them he will have 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 good froit laud.

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 pack their froit iu flrstclaaa shape and will enable them to get a better price than they now receive throogb having a better quality of fioitand of belug able to market their fruit in car load lots in the big Eastern markets. Manager A. B. Cousin has been entertaining a party of Philadelphia and Trenton, N. J., people at the 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 gold to show that their initial ex perience in placer mining was profitable. Dr. Wyokoff ia vine-president of the Ualioe Consolidated Mine Company aud a large stock holder. He is well pleased with the advancement made in faollitlea for operating the property at Galioe, aud bith he aud Mr. Woodwoith were enthusiastic over the prospect for the future. After spending a few days at the nilue the return trip was oue of ex 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 grandeur in Southern Oreogn. The hack was sent over the hill aud picked op ths party at the upper end of the gorge. Crossing Rogne river at the ferry, the next point of interest visited was Hull Gate, where every one of the party took a trip iu a bas ket suspended from a cable 1A0 feet above the water, orosslng by meaus of a hand windlass attached to the boat. hell Gate is a narrow gorge about ix miles below Merlin aud is three Quarters of a mile long, the bloffs rising almost porpendioolar to height of six or seven huudred feet. After a good rest at Mr. Cousin's fioose in Merlin the party left for Portland aud they were loud in their praise of Son them Oregon mines. soenery aud hospitality.

It I in evidence already that in place of a doubling of the total assessed valuation the valuation will be two and a half times greater than that of the last few years aud that it will be a record breaker. The county court has promised that the tax levy will be reduced and that the taxpayer will not be touched to the extent which he feared at the beginning aud that the antes-incut will prove satisfactory in the end. The bcist results are not to be expected from the tirst year's assessment. The next meeting of the county equaliza tion board will be au interesting sesaiou. Ashlaud Record.

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- der a head of 22u feet. This will fur nish ample powei for a large mill aud Boleu creek being fed from the mountains the water supply will con tinue during the summer months. 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 the previoua development work and as there Is but 80 feet to complete the ore body will be resobed by the time the mill is completed. The mill will be located on the creek at tho foot oi the hill aud ore will be brought from the mine by tram car. The track will be about 1000 feet long and the cars will be operated hy gravity, the loaded cars raising the empty oars. The Gold Pick group of olaims cover a remarkable body of ore, both for size of deposit and high grade. The vein has been fonud to be folly 1100 feet wide, and just how long it is has uot beeu ascertained, but It ex tends for several miles acrosa the hills. Dodson Will Not Han..
