CRATER LAKE VISITORS
- ARE GREATLY PLEASED
Grants Pass People Find They ere
Amply Repaid For Stren
Mr. and Mrs. Will Ireland and Mr.
and Mrs. Geo. R. Riddfo formed
party of pleasure seekers who went
over to see the sights around Crater
Lake and they returned borne, more
than pleased with their onting. Al-
though it was a rather tedious trip
and one requiring several days to
make, yet they felt amply repaid
for the undertaking and declare that
words fail them in attempting to de
scribe the magnificent scenery. The
fishing was superb and had they not
ran oat of ' hone feed jnst as they
entered the hooting grounds, they
would doubtless have brought home
with them many trophies of the chase.
As it was, they had all the enjoyment
it Is possible for mortals to have and
barring the breaking of a coupling of
their camp wagon as they were wend
ing their way homeward, there
was no accident to mar the pleasure
of the occasion.
Among the interesting sights
which they beheld was tbe "Big
Hole," located at the inmmit of
Flounce Rock Hill, some 900 feet in
depth, with perpendicular walls and
the excavation is made by a very
small stream, on top of the mountain.
Then cams the famous Rogue River
rapids, with a fall of 200 feet ia a
di'tance of 1000 feet, where the waters
come down with a mighty crash.
About 100 yards below comes the
Fall Creek, with a perpendicular fall
of 200 feet. One of the arreateat at
tractions was the natural bridge
formed by the disappearaoe of the
Rogue River Into the earth aod then
It comes ont again, something like 160
feet below, at almost right angles
with the course of the main stream.
Another fall in the Sooth Fork of
Rogue Rivnr, abont 60 feet, the water
enters into a very deep ravine and
the water in all these falls and
streams is as clegr as crystal and one
coold easily see the bottom of each
one with little effort.
Of coorse Crater Lake was tbe
attraction of all that was presented for
their consideration and they say it was
simply grand. Where the proposed
hotel is located the ground is 7200 feet
above sea level and the water is some
6300 feet at the same point. The water j
is as bine as any 1 digo ever seen ;
and so, when one sees pictures of the j
lake, in which the water is given an!
nnusual blue, it will be remembered
that it is very true to the oatural
conditions. The walla of the lake
rise almost perpendicular nearly all
the way around tbe large body of
water. The lake is stocked with
troat and each fifbernian is limited '
to a catch of five members of the
tinny tribe. A nice launch and set-.
eral row boats are doing service on '
the lake for the accommodation of the
many sightseers who are freqneutlog i
the place. The lake ia situated right
at the summit of the Caacadu mount-!
alns and one can there behold Mount
Shasta, ;Monnt Pitt, Mt. Scott, and ,
Mt. Theilaon, sometimes called "Cow
Horn Peak." Of coorse the scenery to
be had from this vantage gronnd ,
simply beggars description and is a
sight seldom equaled Bnd rarely ever j
surpassed fT its grandnre. i
The party had fine weather at firnt,
bnt lattr on they encountered a ver
itable blizzard with hail and snow ,
and a mighty wind. They found '
pretty "fine roads, ontil. they en
countered some of that "sticky" !
thoroughfare north of Medford, when
they had to get out and walk and
it is a standing joke as to how large
the ladies' feet appeared with'a lot
of the realty clinging thereto. As
they were leaving the wild country,
a s arch party was out bunting for a
N'ehrai"kau who had become lost in
the wilds. He had been gone some
three days with little prospect of his
ever being found. On the whole the
Grunts Panaites were highly pleased
with their Hplendid outing.
If you would avoid additional penal
ty pay your taxes now. "

NEW BOX FACTORY IS
DOING MUCH BUSINESS
This) New Industry Employing
Large Number of Men and
Proving to Be Flue Thing.
"It's payrolls that oonnt," might
well ne taken for a slogan by the
people of Grants Pass who are build
ing for the lotore growth and develop
ment of this entire region and already
the fruits of Una. agitatiou are becom
ing manifest and some good establish
ments, employing many , men are be
ing started in this oily.
One of the newest and best to be
launched is the Grants Pass Box Co.,
which is located just east of ths olty,
where SO acres of satiable grounds
have been secored in close proximity
to the railroad and easy of accesv to
the city. Here the Couriersoribe found
a scene of great activity and as he
passed through Jths large establish
ment and beheld how oomplete it was
in every detail and saw that neithei
money or fpaint had besn spared in
seeoriaa the very best and most op-to-date
eqaiptnent, be oonld not help
bot be impressed with the idea that
tbis is going to be one of the largest
and best institutions of Its kind that
is to be found in all this northwest.
Only three short months bave
elapsed 'since the first ground was
broken for the (factory and although
much of the expensive machinery has
not yet arrived from the eastern
factory, yet enough is here to enable
the -management to rush orders for
fruit boxes and folly two oars per day
of the shocks aod on of dressed lum
ber are hurried to the California
markets, where thers Is a Urge de
mand for it.
Tbe main office of this enterprising
conceru ia located at No. 1041 Moua
dack building, San Francisco, where
President V. W Warren and Secretary
M. L. Laudeo have offices. G. D.
Horner Is manager of the Grants Pass
factory and the newigatherer found
him head overbeels in work, bot jnst
the same, be found time to greet the
reporter in a cordial maoner and took
pains to explain abont tbe workings
of the big oonoern.
. Manager Horner stated that there
are at present 100 men employed in
the work and that folly that number
will be required right tlong, in order
to carry on ths work which has besn
outlined and for which preparations
have been made. Tbis is a no small
item in itself and it means much to
Grants Pass, for '.tke company operat
ing the big factory have no strings on
ons oent of ths big payroll, which
goes out in ths ordinary channels
of trade here in Grants Pass and this
fact is itoobtless greatly appreciated
by the local merchants and dealers.
When it is completed it will be one
of tbe finest box factories and planing
mills that is to be fonnd anywhere.
At present only the box department
Is in operation, bnt soon the machinery
for the planing mill will be here, as
it is now enroote from the eastern
factories. One of the indications
that the management proposes to ran
no risks whatever, is that electric
power is used to propel the ma
chinery, one 100 H. P. motor and one
75 H. P. motor being required to per
form the work. This means protection
from fire, as well as clean and sure
power. To make doubly anre of fire
protection a huge tank.holdingg 80,000
gallons of water will be placed on
top of the large fiO foot high storage
building and the plant throughout
will be equipped with automatio
sprinklers, which will give the very
best possible protection from tbe
dreaded flames. Then, too, the
foundatios of the bnildings and of tbe
shaftings are of concrete, which means
much for such a big bniiness.
The building proper is 90x225 feet
snd in it Is to be found lots of very
expensive, right up-to-date ma
chinery, some of which is not equaled
on the coast and the hum and buzz
of this machinery la so great that
one can hardly "hear himself think,"
as the small army of skilled workmen
are turning oot a large amount of
stuff ready for shipment. The big
storage room, 40x40 feet and ftO feet
high is now In course of construct
ion. Out through the yards are to lie
seen Immense piles of lomher, resdy
for use and placed in a convenient
manner for the workmen to get at it
Manager Horner informed the
Courier man that the orders for ma
terial bad been coming in very rapidly
and that they were aboot swamped
with soch orders. However, they
are running foil shifts and working
day and night in order to not disap
Mr. Hnrner assured the paper man
that the management was glad to
have any visitors who might be In
terested in that line of work and that
all sui h callers would find a hear'y
weclome to come , and Inspect the
Placer blanks at the Courier office.
