F. C. BRODIE,
THE SUMPTER MINER.
Portland Delegation Arrive on
a Special Train Saturday.
The special train on the Stimpter Valley
railway Saturday afternoon brought to
town several prominent gentlemen, among
whom were H. Campbell, general traffic
manager, W. II. Hurlburt, general pas-
.diner agent, and Victor A. Schilling,!
city passenger and ticket agent of the ,
Oregon Hallway V Navigation company,
W. I.. Holse, a prominent attorney and
president of the Portland Commercial
club, E. Cannon, president of the North
west Electric Engineering company, all of
Portland; Ex-Governor Mack, from Spo
kane, and W. I.. Vinson, the Sumpter
These prominent visitors were the
guests of the last named gentleman, who
never neglects an opportunity to turn a
trick In the interest of this camp. This
is the second visit Mr. Hurlburt has made
here within a month, lie Is evidently be
coming Interested in the proposition, but
in just what way he does not care to state.
It Is a matter of much speculation here as
tn whether he is acting In his capacity as
an O. It. A N. o Hi da I, or is merely ar
ranging to make a deal to his personal ad
vantage. Whichever It may be, It is sure
to redound to Sumpter's advantage. He
Is good people to have "on our side."
Mr. Schilling has for some time past
!reu opening up a mine near the (Jolconda
which bids lull to rival that famous prop
erty. The other members of the party were
here lr some specllic purpose, but their
policy Is evidently to 'Saw wood and say
nothing." Their visit here Is a sure sign
that Portland is becoming Interested in
the Sumpter district, and that means much
ot a gratilylng nature.
More Money for Developing Mines.
K. H. Bachelor, of Hay, Washington,
spent several days in Sumpter, leaving
lor home yesterday. He is interested in
several properties in this district with T.
C. Culbertson, whom he has known for
a long time. They have decided to prose
cute development work all winter on one
and perhaps more of their prospects, be
ginning at once. Mr. Hachelor will return t
to Sumpter In the spring and remain here
some time, looking after his mining inter
ests. Order Your Silverware Early.
F. C. Hrodle, the new jeweler, wishes
to announce to the people of Sumpter that
if there is anything in his line which he
does not have in stock, he will be pleased
to order it. He has the Gorham Solid
Silverware Manufacturing company's
catalogues from which to order. He will
receive orders as late as the twentieth
Instant, but prefers early orders, as late
orders must be made by wire.
