Copper buying almost doubled in
price in tbe last five years witb the
demand so great by reason of eleotrical
aod other requirements, that many of
the refineries are behind witb their
orders has given a big impetus to the
development of new copper districts.
Southern Oregon is feeling this boom
in copper and many prospectors are
locating and developing claims in
the Takilma and other districts of
the llinois Valley aud in the Apple
The greatest Vush is now to the
Blue Ledge district in the Upper
Annlegate alley, where over 600
claims have been taken and very ex
tensive development work is being
carried on by many of the claim hold
ers. This big rush to the Upper Ap
plegate is largely due to the certainty
that is felt that a big smelter will be
erected oo the famous Blue Ledge mine
now being developed by a New York
company, who are employing ISO men
and crowding work with tbe utmost
speed. A number of Spokane capit
alists are also doing extensive work
on promising copper claims in this
district. Tbe outlook for the Blue
Ledge district Is so good that miners
are going there in large numbers.
This district is reached by a daily
stage line operated from Jacksonville
by Geo. H. Lewis, tbe well known
liveryman of that place. His trafflo
has so increased that be has put on ad
ditional stages and as the local rail
road from Medford to Jacksonville
does not rnn a morning train, Mr.
Lewis has a stage leave Medford early
eaoh morning, to accommodate miners
comilog in on the S. P. trains, who
desire to go direct to the Blue Ledge
district or to Jacksonville. The trip
to Joes Bar, the distributing point for
tbe Blue Ledge distriot, is made in
Work Progressing on New School
The work of excavating for the
basement aud foundation for the new
Third Ward school building will be
completed this week and next week
brick -laying will be begun. The con
tractor, John Nalaskowski, has sublet
the contract for the brickwork to H.
J. Clark. Mr. Nalaskowski only
doing the carpenter work. Mr. Clark
is having a large amount of brick de
livered and Mouday he will put a
large force of bricklayers at work to
rush the job as the contract allows
but two months iu which to complete
The Courier is asked to make an
explanation on the part of the unsuc
cessful bidders on the new school
building. As published in the
papers last week the bids of Utly &
Harper, Hubbard, Dny & Fitzgerald
and Henry Suock were considerable
higher thun the bid of John Nalas
kowski, to whom was awarded the
v-ou tract. This big difference was
caused by the board changing the
plans of the building after the bids
had been received to not use steel eye-
beams over the windows and doors
but to use brick arches. Those eye-
beams would have cost (I'.'O. This
amount had it been deducted from the
amounts of the unsuccessful bidders
would have brought their bids down
close to that of Mr. Nalaskowski, but
not so low as to have giveu atiyoue
of them the contract.

Rev. J. B. Travis is now putting in
all his spare time in putting the yard
iu shape about his dwelling honse he
recently had built on North Seventh
street and which he moved into last
week. The house has eight rooms
and is the perfection of convenience.
Broad halls aud large airy rooms and
a generous porch are the attractive
features, while the room aud library
of Rev. Travis is all that a student
could ask. The building is warmed
by a furnace aud a commo lions base
ment affords ample storage space for
wood aud other purposes. The loca
tion selected by Rev. aud Mrs. Travis
for their new home is oue of the most
desirable in the city aud a fine view
is bad of the valley of Rogue river in
Rev. Travis has had several flatter
ing calls in the past year to other
cities but now that he is no longer
a tenant but is able to sit beneath his
own vine aud fig tree and as be is one
of the most popular ministers in Grants
Pass aud the Baptist church is so well
satisfied witb his pastoral work that
they raised his salary deepite bis
wishes, there is every certainty that
he aud bis equally popular wife will
be residents of this city for many
years to come.
