KENNET SMELTER TO BUY

Will Pay Good Price for Siliceous

H. G. Moulton of the Rogue River
Engineering Company, returned Fri

Mr. Moulton stopped for seveial
days in the big copper district
about Kenuet. He states that the
new smelter being put in at Keunet
by the Mammoth Coppe- Company,
will soon be in full operation. There
are to be three furnaces each or a
capacity of 800 tons per day, giving
the smelter a capacity of 000 tons of
copper ore per day. One furnace was
blown in three weeks ago and the
other two will be blown in shortly.
Within the next 12 months two more
smelters will be in operation near
Kenuet and others are prospective with
a certainty of being built The Balak
lava Copper Company are erecting a
smelter, which they expect to blow-
In early in the spring, and the Trinity
Copper Company are soon to begin
work on a smelter, which they ex
poet to have completed by next fall.
The Keswick smelter, Mr. Moulton
states is being torn down and moved
o a new location on San Francisco
bay. This monitor was a success and
was paving big dividends, but en
countered too many injunctions to
permit of it being ran at Keswick.
When the Iron Mountain copper mines
were being develowd a large number
of farmers settled In the vicinity and
built up a profitable business lu rolling
produce to the miners and latterly to
the smelter men. When the smelter
began operations the fumes killed off
the timber and vegmation near it,
and the farmers fearing their crops

Mr. Moulton while at Kenuet made
arrangements to be the purchasing
agent for Hnuthcru Oregon to buy
siliceous gold ores for the Kennel
Hiuelter. Owing to the character of
the copper ore handled by the Koimet
smelter a large amount of silica is ro
il ui red as a flux. Much of the gold
bearing rock of this district is of a
highly tilicoous character and is the
best of a Auxins material for a cop
per smelter. As there is very little of
this rock in the Keunet district it
will have to be shipped in from other
planes. Hotitheru Oregon will be
the chief source of supply lor this
timing material for there are many
mines here near the railroad that
could ship large quantities. The
management of the Keunet smelter
claim that they will be able to pay
more for gold ore of the class that
tliey can use than can the Tacvma or
Selby smelters. If that is the case it
will be a big thing for the miners of

ROGUE RIVER VALLEY
HOP GROWERS UNION
Te Be Organized in Grants Pass
Every Grower Expected
A meeting of the hop growers of
Rogne River Valley will be held in
Grants Pass on Saturday, December
9, at the Courier office at 1 p. m.
There will be two matters up for con
sideration, one the organization of
a hop growers nnion and the other the
pooling of the crop for this year to
enable a better price to be realized
The meeting is called at the request
of all the leading growers of the
Valley and the assurance is given that
every hop grower in Rogue River
Valley will be present.
That the hop industry has come to
that condition that the old system
in which each grower was for himself
taking his chances with the market
and the dealers is no longer possible
and it Is up to the growers to unite for
oo-operatlon sua mutual benent. or
be forced by the trusts and combines
to grow hops for just the bare cost of
productloa and meager living for the
grower and his family. The hop.
men paid 26 per cent higher for their
burlap this season than last for no
Cause other than that the Count deal
ers had formed a combine. Sulphur
is in the bauds of a trust. Then to
make matters worse for the farmer,
who is the last one to evn think of
co-operatioD and nuioo, the hop deal
ers formed a combine and crushed the
market to starvaticn prices. After
holdiug the market down all Fall to
the bare cost of production with most
grevsome predicitious of continued
low priecs the buyers have got in
nearly half of the crop, which has
been sold by growers who were on
thevtrgb of financial rain. As whs
to be expected the market is now
stiffening and sales cau readily be
made at 10 to 12 cents. Wheu ail the
hops that can be had at that price
are secured then a further raise will
be made high enough to gut the bulk
of the hop crop, then prices will be
jumped high to the losj of the farmer
and the brewer.
Not a bale of Rogue River hops bus
been sold and it is expected that noun
will be sold until after the meeting
has been held and the matter fully cou
sidered. The plan of sale mottly
favored is to form a pool of all the
hops in the Valley and then invite
bids for the entire lot,. This is the
method of sale that is adopted by the
wool growers of Eastern Oregon nod
Washington and of the goat raisers of
the Willamette Valley for the sale of
their wool and mohair. The Hood
River fruit growers sold their eutire
ppln crop this fall in a pool. They
hud big bidders from New York ai
three from Europe and the entire crop
went to one firm at from t'J to 3. 10
per box as compared to tiO cents to
fl.35 that Josephine, county growers
get for their apples. The farmers of
the Paloore Valley, WhhIi., pool
their barley and a bidder for
brewery company took the lot at 8 pi
cent above the local trice. With the
Rogue River hops sold in one lot big
dealers could afford to bid up and
far better price could be had than to
peddle them out iu small lots.
As to the plan of union it is not
proposed to make an ironclad orgaul
ration cf it. The membership fee
will probably be about a dollar and
no rigorous rules for buying supplies
nor for selling the crop will
adopted, the system to be similar to
that of the fruit growers unions, that
have proven ho successful. The
union will buy burlap, sulphur
spraying material and other supplies
at wholci-ulc and tell to the member
ship at cost. And the securing and
distribution of pickers will be done
by the union, which will conduct au in
fer million bun an for g'owiis, pickers
and dryers. A strong feature cf the
union will be to keep the members
posted on the condition of the grow
ing hop crop cf the world, and of the
yield and market conditions as far as
Is possible to asccrtniu.
With a union orgitni.ed cu right
lines, aud having otlieers, and a board
of directors, who will be true to the
intercits of the members and not
dominated by the ulliionce cf any
dealer, it would do much to put the
hop industry of Kcguti River Valley
on a profitable financial basis mid be
the means of building up the industry
to one cf the most Important in
Southern Oregon. Hut if the pros'tit
haphazard system is coutined it will
bring financial ruin to a majority of
the groweis and pnctictilly end hop
raising in this Valley.

the foremost of which was the solemn
injunction that under no circum

"That reminds me. I went to see Bar

John went straight to his unt a, de
termined not to tell her of ihe futile
interview with Barrie and Its ending.
But Cupid ruled otherwise. He found
Marian Barrie in the house, and, real
izing how hopeless his love must be
now was hardly civil io ner. i.:U
aunt noticed it, and said:
"Why, John, Marian has been my only
comfort, except always you, ince this
happened, and you act as if you were
angry with her. O', what are they
going to do wifh me, John? What did
Mr. Barrie say?"
And John could keep in no longer. It
all came in a rush of passionate words
restrained only by Marian's presence.
As she listened the color left her face,
and a great tear lilled each eye. ana,

Ten minutes. later they sought Bar
bara Myle to ast-ure her that neither
'ogreed with father.
"Now, John," said Marian, "I believe
that vou and 1 can fathom this. Of i
course, the most natural theory is that
some enemy of Miss Myles has put 1his
book hire in this house. But there are ,
two facts against that. No one has
been in the house but old Job Doyle, nnd
Mise Mvles hasn't any enemies. But!
there was the book."
"Where w is it found ?" asked John.
"In the box under the seat here by the
fireplace." answered Barbara. now
could it have come there uule.- after I ;
had left here the morning I found it
was gone, some one hod come here and
placed it in the settle?" j
"Were there any signs of anyone's
coming in, Aunt Barbara? Tell us the
whole story again from the last time
you saw the book," soid John.
"When I came home to lunch the book
was there in its accustomed place. That
was. the last I sow of it. O, no. Job
Doyle had it that afternoon."
"Yes he told me so when I met him.
Did he put it back?"
"Why, John, you don't think? Of
course he put it back."
"Did you we it after you saw it in his
hands? Think hard, now."
The poor Tttle woman blushed and
looked uncomfortable and finally said:
"No. Mr. Doyle was waiting ojt-de for
me and it was storming tiercel.,. Sol
just put out the remaining lights and I
do believe I did not look to see if the

"Yes, yes," said John. "What then?"

John, you d in't think. Why, where are

John rushed out of the house, saying'
titnething as he went, about "that ab-'

He went to Job Doyle's house, Slid
the maid told him she expected her
nui-ster haek at any nioinfn'. So he
eoneluded to wait. Soon in e.ime .lob,
wearing a far-away look, ami greeted
John with a very formal "how do you
do, sir? What ran I do for you?"
"lell us what you stole the Walton
for," soid John.
"ti.ul bless my soul!" rjacukited Job.
"What do you mean, sir?"
"Xothiiijr but what I said," i'iid John,
