A stranger, accustomed to tho nc
live scenes of a more tliiokly popula
ted region, on visiting Curry county,
is naturally impressed witli" the Won
flint its resources arc limited, its pop
illation pnrVo and poverty-Ktriekon,
' nml its prospect in the future any
thing but encouraging Such are tho
views which we hnvo heard expressed
in past years, mid only n somewhat
fnmiliur ncquninttmcc with its terri
tory and its cituens has hnd the e licet
to dispel this error, and enable us to
form n just and correct opinion on
the subject.
In the carlicryoarsof the history of
the county, mining formed the lead
ing prodvetive industry of its people,
hilcn few years Inter, stock raising
assumed n prominenco which it still
mnintains. There is no better sheep
anil entile range in the world than the
rolling prairie and grass covered hills
which are found on llogue river n em
its mouth, and also on Sixes nml Flor
a's creek. There are also some excel
lent stock farms south of Kllensburg
as far as Chctco. Many of tho "sheep
men" of that county have been pros
perous and are "well to do."
Some three years ago, the value of
the salmon fisheries of lloguc river
and Chctco became more apparent
than formerly, and K. D. Hume con
structed the large canning establish
ment at Ellensburg, where tho busi
ness of canning fish in all its details is
done to the greatest perfection and
with the most perfect machinery
known to the trade. Tho product of
this business as carried on in Curry
county aggregates a lnrgesum annual
ly, and, during the reason, furnishes
employment to a large number of
men. Mr. Hume has, at great ex
pense, secured lauds along both banks
of the river for some distance above
Ellenshurg, thereby protecting his
business from being at any time re
stricted or cut oir by riparian owners.

ties interested in fishing in that
stream, and the product of their fish
eries is put up for market in barrels.
Should tho market for these fish ap
preciate to the utandard of four years
ago, there would soon be a cannery
established there. 4

For nearly thirty years the mining
of gold has formed a leading branch
of industry in Curry county, and al
though the bench claims arc not as
productive as they were in ISoO, con
siderable quantities of gold dust arc
annually bartered for necessaries by!
the residents. Many of the old claims I Prescriptions
still pay tolerably well in the winter, j
but some arc worked out. The river
claims on the Sixes, that turned out !
a large amount of gold in earlier days, PllfigTMS fi'f1?-
era during the past year, though
outlay.

there is a probability of business being
revived in that district the coming
mi mm or.
There is a lead of gold-bearing sand
about six miles north of Port Orford
and several mile from the beach,
which was prospected tno six yearn
ago, and upon which mmhc mining
has been fcince carried on by C. Mad
den, Esq. The principal owners are
Madden and the Cox brothers ; the
the former, who owns a large tract of
mining ground, is taking out come
gold at the present time, and, with
means to open these claims proporly,
and work them on a large ?calo, wc do
not doubt tho property would prove
valuable.
LUMBER.
The business of manufacturing and
bhipping white cedar lumber from
Port Orford was inaugurated nearly
-twenty years ago, and for Rome years
was very profitable, but the decline in
the market for that timber and the
difficulty of f hipping regularly from
that porLjiaA had the effect to suspend
tho business. There is a mill of ca
pacity for 15 or 20 thousand feet per
day at Port Orford, owned by a com
pany known as the Port Orford Cedar
Company, who are also ownor of a
large tract of land containing cedar
timber, but tho company are bome
what involved and it is doubtful (un
less the harbor of refugo should be lo-
cated there) ..win ever oe resume,, njJ&T02& WOIE

lumber, tho logs for which they ex
pected to obtain from miles up the
Jtogue river. Tlio business failed on
account of tho iinpractibility of ob
taining logs. Ilumo now owns tho
mill, and it cuts only a little lumber
for his own use, and to supply tho lo
cal demand.
Ci:XERAI FARMING.
This branch of industry has been
carried on only to u very limited ex
tent in Currj county; but little grain
haa been raised, and wo believe there
is not a grist mill in the county
Somo few men arc turning their at
tention to variety farming with good
BUCCC68. Among these may bo men
tioned Hon. Harry Wake of Chctco,
and Judge Woodruff" of Uca acck.
