Kraph headline, designates the Hners as
OI- course, "all signs fall in dry
weather," hut if the expected stampede to
the Sumpter district In the spring fails to
materialize, then the race can with some
degree of reason begin to figure on dodg
ing those most inevitable of all sure thing
games, death and taxes.
AND now the director of the mint steps
to the front with the explanation (hat the
cause of the present stringency In the
money market Is that people have been
"hoarding for speculative purposes"
which Is the prlr winning specimen of
idiocy which has yet been advanced by
IP Maker City wants this portion of the
present county of Maker to help pay for
that palatial court house which she builds
while Indulging In her favorite occupation
of pipe-dreaming, it would be wise to
have the vote on the bonding proposition
taken More the two or three thousand
newcomers to the Sumpter district be
come legal residents.
Tilt: Molse Statesman gives expression
to a grievance to which Sumpter people
.tie now vainly endeavoring to become ac
iiislomed, having given up all hope of
remedying the rotten evil. It says: "If
any one wishes to express anything to
Sumpter, Oregon, he would better pur
chase a ticket and convey the package
personally. The express service between
Moise and that place Is no more reliable
tli.111 the Hesse At Sttirges clock."
IT IS predicted by I Jr. Menjamin Is. An
drews, former president of Mrowu uni
versity, at present superintendent of Chi
cago public schools, that the surrender of
the Moers to England will inaugurate a
great International war. lie sivs the
United States can't keep out of it and
speculates on what side this country will
tight. So Ur as the International war Is
concerned, that Is not at all improbable,
but why tills government should be forced
into the free-for-all scrap, Is difficult to see.
If she is true to the traditions which have
made her great, she will remain strictly
neutral, and sell her food products to the
highest bidder for cash.
IT IS stated that the reason for the fail
ure of the (Kobe National bank, Boston,
was the result of the light made on the
Independent copper companies by J. D.
Rockefeller and his Amalgamated Cop
per company. Some months since this
truly good man acquired a taste for cop
per. Having a voracious appetite, he
couldn't I satisfied until he secured the
Huston and Montana mine for his trust.
The only way to acquire this was to
smash the Globe bank, a large stock
lioldcr. After little meditation and much
prayer, claiming Divine guidance the
while, he proceeded to put into execution
this inspired scheme and it uou out.
Then he celebrated the triumph of his
righteous cause by giving J 10,000 to a
nigger college in Tuskeegee, Alabama.
It is said that copper securities liave
shrunk f 50,000,000 since December 1,
and 197,000,000 in ten months, since
Rockefeller's covetous eye turned in that
THE MINER receives every day from
papers in different parts of the country re
quests for exchanges. Although THE
MINER has no Interest whatever in the
sections of country represented by many
of these publications, it would gladly
comply with their requests, In conformity
with a time honored custom of the craft,
were It possible to do so. But such is not
the case, our press capacity at present
being so limited that we are in reality not
able to supply the demand for paid copies.
This condition of affairs will be remedied,
however, at no distant day, when the
brethren of the press will be furnished
with a paper which a technical knowledge
enables them to appreciate even more
fully than does the general public, that Is
Itself not slow In recognizing the merits
of THE MINER.
A PRESS dispatch sent out from Port
land, under date of December 28, quotes
General Passenger Agent Hurlburt.of the
O. K. & N., as saying: "From informa
tion received it Is evident that In the min
ing centers of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming
and California, there is much talk about
the eastern Oregon mines, and particu
larly about Sumpter and adjacent districts.
Further reports received from the Colvllle
reservation and Rnsslaudand Sandon dis
tricts in British Columbia indicate from
these quarters toward eastern Oregon 11
large movement of prospectors, miners
and capitalists, and people directly inter
ested in the mining centers of the east are
also Interested and are arranging to send
out experienced mining men, with the view
of investing of large amounts In the new
gold fields. Everything indicates an ex
cessive passenger traffic the coining season."
