THE SUMPTER MINER.
Wednesday, April 4, 1900
New Coaches, Stock and Other
What has been so long known as the
McKwen Si Sloan stage lines, running in
every direction from Sumpter, has been
recently changed In name and manag
went, and In n few days at the fartherest
will be also changed In manner of service,
until old patrons will be able to draw con
trasts between the two concerns. This
statement Is not intended to cast reflec
tion on the former managment, as Tom
MJ:wen Is still the manager of the new
company. A carload of new stages to
take the place of the old ones, is now on
the way here, together with new stock to
Ko Into the harness, which will make the
luirden of stage travel much lighter, in
(act a pleasure trip, in comparison with
some of the experiences of the past.
The new company also announces that
n carload of freight wagons and other
equipment will arrive in a day or two,
with which to enlarge its facilities for
tnovlng freight, of which there Is and will
tie a large tonnage from this point.
The passenger trallic, however, will
probably receive the chief attention of the
company, and since It assumeJ charge of
affairs on March 24, lias so improved that
some days there is a scramble for room,
nnd at all times the stages go out loaded.
The old livery barn on Center street
,s fast being remodeled Into a business
Mock, hi which it is learned there will be
live store rooms on the ground floor and
forty rooms up stairs, to be used as a lodg
ing house. One of the stores below is
said to be engaged by a Portland man or
4irm for a dry goods house.
The company ollices will also be moved
from the present cramped quarters into
one of the new rooms, where better facil
ities will be afforded for the business.
Eventually it is the Intention to concen
trate all the departments controlled, the
stage barn, livery stable, blacksmith,
wagon and harness shops under one roof,
making the largest Institution of the kind
in the state. The new corporation, now
known as the Sumpter Transportation
company, is officered by W. H. Cade,
president; T. (. Harrison, vice-president
andtreasurer; N. C. Richards, secretary,
and Tom McHwcn, manager.
Hot WaUr Artesian Welti.
C. II. Haines has completed an artesian
well in the Moxee district, Yakima county,
Washington, for Raouf l.angevin, of the
French colony. The well is 770 feel deep
mid discharges three-fourths of a cubic
loot per second. It cost fiooo, but Is con
sidered cheap at that price, as it furnishes
a perpetual water supply for Irrigating the
entire farm of 100 acres. This makes
twenty-one wells in the Mo.vee basin
furnishing water for over 2000 acres. As
the water comes to the surface at a tern
Venture of 77 degrees, it Is valuable tor Ir
rigating in summer and heating barns and
dwelling houses In winter. The district
will be converted Into an early garden
-iikI truck farming area, and some of the
farmers propose adding poultry and pet
.-inimals to their profit-making industries.

tween Sumpter and Canyon City will be
improved. Vic Schilling received word
today that extensive plans are being
formed by the stage company for Increas
ing the business of that community.
