J. M. Meeker, representative of
the Mace Smelter company o f Den
ver, is now in Southwestern Oregon
making a survey o f the situation rel
ative to the establishment of a
smelter in this section to handle our
base ores. Mr. Meeker is no stranger
to southern Oregon, his father,
Charles Meeker, having been en
gaged in the construction o f the rail
road line through the Rogue valley
during the 80’s and resided in Jack-
son county where Mr. Meeker was
raised. During the past year has
made many trips to this district
gathering data on our miner-! re
sources, character o f our ores, cli
matic conditions, transportation, etc.,
and many samples of our ores have
been sent to him by the Bureau for
metallurgical examination. As a re
sult o f these investigations Mr.
Meeker returned here last week to
examine properties in the different
districts to determine the «tage o f
development, the extent of the ore
bodies, and whether sufficient ton
nage can be assured to warrant the
operation o f a smelter o f 1 GO-ton
capacity to start with; also to inter
view our mining men on the sub
ject. Should the result o f his pres
ent investigation be favorable and
his people determined to go ahead
with the propeet the Bureau is as
sured that ample finances will be
available to install and operate such
Inasmuch as Mr. Meeker will not
be able to visit every mine in South
western Oregon during his stay, the
