MINING CONVENTION. !
Excunlont Will Ik Run From Baker City
to SumpUr Dally. 1
At the regular meeting of the board of
directors of the Chamber of Commerce 1
some Important steps were taken relating
to the pioposed mining convention. The
committee, Messrs. Imhaus, Carter and
Sage, presented a report outlining the
work and the best methods of procedure.
The repot t was approved and a letter was
forwarded to Industrial Agent Judson, of
the O. H. iV N., embodviug the main
teatures of the tepoit.
It lias been decided by the committee to
have tilieen speakers during the conven
tion. These will be brought Horn difler
ent p.itts of the Northwest, who will
speak on ditfeient subjects dining the con
vention, the pi iucipal topi, being that ot
mining, l:cursions will be given to j
Sumpter every day to the speakers, who 1
will be afforded every opportunity to in-'
vestigate the camp. . ,
It is estimated by the committee that
this feat 111 e of the convention would entail
.1 cost of Mooo, but it Is believed no trou
ble will be met witli in raising that
amount. The O. R. N. and Industrial
Agent Judson ate in heartv co-operation
with the movement and have offered
every assistance possible to make the
convention a success. Baker Democrat. '
Cam Furniture Company.
The Case l:urniture company is mov
ing into its new building, on Mill street,
between (.iranltr and North. No Institu
tion in Sumpter has grown more rapidly
than has this business. Six months since -It
had plenty of room In the little ij by i
100 foot store in the opera house block for
the small stock then carried. Business
has expanded and the necessity for carry
ing more goods increased; until for some
months past it has been used only as a
convenient place to show samples, the
stock being stored in vacant houses any
where storeroom could be secured. The
new building Is 25 by too feet in size, two
stories high. A gallery runs around
three sides of the first floor, and the entire
building will be occupied by thecompany's
more than Jio.ooo stock. The old
quarters will be occupied by a chophouse.
Rich Pocket in the Virtue.
A well founded rumor was in circula
tion this afternoon to the effect that a
very rich strike had been made in the
Virtue mine, which is located about eight
miles east of this city. The mine has not
been worked for some time. The strike
was made this morning, but the exact
nature of the ore is not known. It is
asserted, however, that It is very rich. It
was found In pocket form. This mine is
one of the oldest producers of the Eastern
Oregon district, and It Is well known to
all the mining world. Baker Republican.
Rich Strike Eight Mile From Sumpter.
C. W. Canfleld made a rich strike re
cently of free gold. He declines to give
Its location, more definite than that it Is
about eight miles from Sumpter. A
MlNUK man watched him pound the rock
and pan it out. There were hundreds of
very fine gold colors hi the pan, from a
piece of quart, the size of a man's double
fist. He looked at the result admiringly
and remarked: "No assay is needed for
for that kind of rock."
The Columbia beer, brewed in Sumpter,
Is today as good as any made.
