Will Not Have to Pay For
The Improvement of At
watcr Street is Decision
of Circuit Court.
Court Holds That Notice of
Intention to Improve the
Street Was Not Suffic
ient. In the case of Mae L. Walker vs.
the City of Bandon in which the plain
tiff asked for a permanent injunction
agninst tlic sale of her property on
Atwater street, for the street improv
mcnt, Judge John S. Coke, after hear
ing the evidence, granted the request
and the city is therefore compelled
to refrnin from further prococdurc
in the matter , unless the case is ap
pealed to the supremo court, which
will probably bo done.
In his conclusion on the case after
hearing the evidence and the argu
ment, Judge Coke finds the following:
First that tho notice given by the
City Recorder of tho City of Bandon
on March 4th, 1909, was insufficient
and unauthorized by tho commoncoun
cil and was without jurisdiction or
power to enact tho ordinance for the
improvement of said street, or to take
any proceedings therein as set forth
in the complaint subsequent to the
issuance of the said notice, nnd that
said notice was insufficient nnd void.
b 'Second "That tho assessment -attempted
to bo levied against said pro
perty and entered upon the lien hook
Third: That the temporary injune
of said city was void,
tion before granted should bo made
' Fourth; That neither party should
recover costs or disbursements herein.
Tho amount of the asscsment in
this case was $93.35 and wasassesscd
against lot 5, in block 8, Woodland
Addition to Bandon, Oregon and
fronting on Atwater street, now Sec
ond Street East.

proceeds will go towards obtaining
literature for tho advertising of liati-
don and vicinity.

of 1913. Total deposits on March 4
were $2,820,917, a increase of $320,

According to C. C. Colt, presibent
of the Union Meat Co., of Portland,
Oregon is becoming noted as a hop
nnd nheop raising state. Since 1912
no hogs have been shipped to the
Portland Stock Yards from other
RL-itos tho entire supply being drnwr
from Oregon. Tho absenco of corn,
which hns always been considered
indespensible to the finishig of good
pork, hns not troubled the Oregon
farmor, as a combination of alfalfa,
barley and other grains has been
found an excellent substitute
Farmer Smith, of the O. W. R. & N.
Rv. insists that within ten years Ore
gon will be one of tho greatest corn
producing states in tho Union and
that the state will then be n heavy ex
porter of hog products.
Ontario will hold a corn carnivnl
early next fall at which prizes will
bo awarded to tho farmers growing
tho best individual cars of corn and
also to those raising tho largest num-
Imr of bushels ncr acre. I ho car

the Ontario Commercial Club and
the Mainour County Grange. It is
oxpectpd that at least 200 farmers
will enter tho contest.

Report on the Likeliest
The mass meeting at the Commer
cial Club Hall last Friday night was
not aa well attended as it should have
been but there was considerable inter
est manifested by those present.
Tho discussions proved to be inter
esting, and many good points wero
brought out by tho speakers.
A number of references were made'
to tho present council, tho general
trend of which were that the present
council had dono and were dc'.ng
their best, that mistakes had been
made, but tho duties imposed up
on councilmen were difficult and mis
takes were easily made, but regard
less of this fact it was thought that
tho present council had dono much
good. Soma of the speakers, how
ever, voiced the opinion that the pres
ent council had forced things through
without due consideration of the
wishes of the electorate.
After considerable discussion it
was proposed by John Nielson that
a committee bo appointed .to canvass
thofaiAtation --nnd- interview men
whom tho committco considered
would make good councilmen and of
ficers. There were a number of ladies
present, and Mrs. J. L. Kronenberg

the meeting. Among tho men who
spoke were G. T. Treadgold, N. J.

eracy test bo dropped because of the
risk of President Wilson's veto, but
tho majority of tho committee did not
believe the President would carry his
opposition to thnt feature so far as
to veto the entire bill. Senators op
posed to tho test will fight it on he

Southwestern Oregon has long
been known for its widespread and
varied mining resources, nmonc
which gold, silver, copper, platinum
and coal arc the most important
They have been the subject of inves
tigation for a number of years by J.
S. Diller of the United Slates Geo
logical Survey, and tho results have
just been published in Bulletin 540.
Tho gold rush of '49 landed many o
prospector in Southwestern Oregon.
Placers were op"encd nnd placer" iriin-"
ing has ever since continued to be
a thriving branch of mineral indus
try. The gold produced in South
western Oregon before 1881 cannot
be very closely estimated, but it wut.
many millions of dollars, while from
1881 to 1912 inclusive the production
of gold has been $11,257,772. During
the ten years 1903 to 1912 inclusive
tho placer mines produced $2,014,715
and the lode mines $1,523,220. Be
sides the gold and a considerable
amount of copper tho production of
silver during the same period wbe
valued at $03,385, of platinum $15,
293, and of coal $2,002,122.
The gold of the bedrock series in
the Klamnth Mountains, which in
clude the Siskiyou and Salmon moun
tains, was deposited in viens and poc
kets in connection witli the upheav
al of the mountains at the close of
the Jurassic geologic period. Evei
since then the disintegration and ero
sion of these rocks has furnished the
gold for tho auriferous gravels.
The encircling beaches of tho an
cient "Siskiyou Island" which was
surrounded by the early Cretaseouf
sea, contain the oldest auriferou
gravels, now mined nt the Forty
nine nnd other mines, from Arbuckk
in California to Waldo in Oregon
Tho ocean waves aided by the land
streams, washed away tho mountaint
and by long, deep weathering of the
gold-veined rocks freed the gold for
concentration by stream action into
a series of auriferous gravels from
Gold Basin, 4,000 feet above the sea,
and tho much later and older "old-
channels, to thoso of tho present
stream bars.
