In another column relative to stamps al

development Work now being done and
the nmakc a rough estlmnte of What Sump
ter Is destined to be.
HAVE you noticed that the Baker City
papers have changed their tune entirely
of late and are now singing Sumpter's
praises? Every few days, however, they"
build the railroad on to John Day valley
or elsewhere, and that Is the only re
minder of the policy pursued until re
cently. THOSE lloers know how to fight, and
they are doing It with the desperation and
lofty patriotism of men defending their
presides from an Invading foe. Hut the
result Is already written, their deleat Is
juevltable. They cannot withstand the
"march of progress and modern civiliza
tion" a phrase which, like charity, cov

amount of work to be done will be limited
njily by the supply of material, and labor.

partment admitting patent on groups of
lulning claims, on one of which sufliclent
work Hid been done to amount to $500 on
each, was superseded by a new ruling
December 17, 187, making It necessary
to have $$00 worth of work dune on each
cj.ilin, whether alone or a part of a group,
before patent would issue. Subsequently
this ruling was suspended until July 1,

fact that his whole training unfits him for
the Intricate, perplexing cares of state;
that he is too bluntly honest and straight
forward to contend successfully with the"
wiles and tricks of trained politicians. He,
can rest with luxurious ease upon the
plentitude of laurels won, which must be;
a.truly Intlclng future for, one of his char-'

In the attractive prime of life, with anj
ample fortune at her disposal, accustomed'
and wedded to Washington social life, an'
acknowledgd radiant ornament, wlthall,
in that generally reputed charmed circle,
a new and potent Influence Is introduced
into affairs political. If the nomination is'
offered Dewey, he madam must neces

sea captain shows any Inclination to with
hold from her the proud social triumphs'
which she can win as "the first lady of
the land," he will stir up. a domestic con

Using out" a partner In a. mining claim is
going tne rounds of the exchanges;
Where several co-owners abandon a claim,
and one of them desires to re-locate, he
must "advertise out" his partners. The
supreme court of Utah has rendered a de
cision In point, In which It holds that such
re-locations Inure to the benefit of all orig
inal joint locators, and that the re-locator
holds the title thus acquired In trust for
them. The court points out that the
proper course of procedure is for the one
re-locating to "advertise out" the 'others

statutes, In case he desires to become the

DEWEY the Great has announced that
he is engaged to the widow of the late
General Hazen. Just so sure as it Is that
the earth revolves around the sun, this
means much In the realm of American pol
itics. Dewey, himself, who knows that
he has already won deathless fame, and
tliat a term as president of the United
States would be more apt to detract from
than to add to his splendid renown, would
perhaps not care for the honors and re

the orders we have on file. To get

dry kiln. To get other stock we ship
from Bridal Veil, Baker City, McEwen,
