Editor Rogue Klver Courier:
Under the head of "Milling Matters"
we noticed in your Usue of the 11th
inst. the following item : Some talk
baa been occsHioned among local min
ing people by the faot tlit the Golden
Drift MiningCo. has posted notices
on Jts proporty, near this city to the
effst-t that it intends to condemn
prertv for right of way fur irriga
tion purposes proceeding under the
law of I 'JOS which gives suchan un
dertaking the right of eminent do
main." We are not informed as to where the
Courier gut this information it is
news to the writer and the aononce
nient is unauthorized by the Golden
Drift Mining Co. There are no such
notices pouted and never have been
upon this company's property. We do
keep the usual notices of water loca
tions posted at the dam aud have for
the past five years, bat at for con
demnation suits for irrigation enter
prises none are contemplated.
We are not in a position to begin and
carry forward an irrigation enterprise
at this time and if we were, it ap
pears to the writer that a country
through which an irrigation enter
prise must force its way by condem
nation suits would not offer any
guarantee that the land owner
would take the water after the Ditch
had been built.
The grape industry appears to be
engaging the attention of the Grants
Pass, people just now and with this a
sentiment is being worked up to the
effect that all grape lauds hold suffi
cient moisture for successful grape
culture without irrigation, and witb J
this industry covering one-third of
tne valley as some are now proclaim
ing that it will, there would not be
sufficient lands left to offer any in
ducements to capital for the Duilding
of long and expensive irrigating
ditches, or the expenditure of an
equally large amount of money in

There is only one way to cure deaf

remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous

this tube is inflamed you have a

and when It is entirely closed, deaf
