FIVE THOUSAND MINERS COMING
General Wtntn't Estimate of the Stampede
to Sumpter in the Spring.
General Charles S. Warren returned
several days since from a trip to Hutte,
Spokane and Husband. Ik- says that in
all of these places, where milling men do
largely congregate, Sumpter was an in
tercsting topic of conversation, and he
was besieged by enquirers who were
anxious to secure Information about the
TIioukIi the General doesn't say so
himself, the impression prevails among
those who know him best, that he sup
plied the long felt wants of these earnest
seekers after truth. Judging from Inter
views, republished in Till: MINI-K last
week and this, from Hutte and Hossland
papers, he did not attempt to hide Sump
ler's daling light under a bushel at any
stage of the game.
He estimates that live thousand miners
w ill come to this district in the spring, a
large proportion of whom will come Irom
Montana, Idaho, Washington and Itrllisli
Columbia. Me did not encourage any init
io start before spring.
General Warren says he now feels
conlideut that work on the proposed sys
tem of electric roads to the" surrounding
camps, will be started as soon as the snow
goes off. I he lirst one to be constructed
will be a Hue to the Cable Cove district.
He went to Maker City yesterday and
will return home today.
Every Lot Gmtalm III Price in Gold.
It is iulle possible that the time Is com
ing when the entire part of what is now
the business portion ol Sumpter will be
mined lor placer gold. It rests on a de
posit of autllerous gravelnvernglng proba
bly about eighty feet In depth, and the
dirt taken out In digging wells will show
colors to almost every pan. In iK)K Sam i
Campbell and the writer panned some of
the dump Iioin the old electric light plant
well which prospected good, one small
nugget going about live cents, with many
m.irse p.irtkles of smaller size. As high
as re.il estate values now aie,aud still lis
lug, It Is safe to say that there is enough
placer gold In every lot on this gravel bed
to p.iv lor the lot, II It could be touoml
ially mined. Cove Ledger.
