General Warren Hit Nothing to Do With
General Warren and W. C. Calder
left for Portland Monday afternoon, on
. business connected with the Sumpter
Townsite company. The former will stop
off at Walla Walla for a few days before
proceeding to Portland. They will be ab
sent a week or more.
Just before taking the train General
v Warren made emphatic denial that he is
interested in the remotest degree In the
Mineral City townsite proposition, over in
Idaho. This statement was published in
the Portland Telegram, from its Baker
City correspondent, and is reproduced in
another column of Till: MlNKR today.
The General says lie has his hands full
here, also a "full hand" and is not look
ing for other propositions.
it is learned from other and reliable
sourccs.that. Mineral City is being pro
inoted by gentlemen who own the North
port smelter, wesiey warren, son in
the General, is ore buyer for tint Institu
tion, and more than likely is also in a
measure interested l:i this deal. This
would account for the mistake of getting
his name mixed up with his father's.
Only 1248 Voter Registered.
The registration of voters Is very slow.
The total number registered throughout
the county yesterday was 1,248, about
one-half of the number of the votes polled
in the county -at the -June election two
years ago. Of the total number regis
tered, 618 are in Baker City. The books
close on May is. All voters should keep
this in mind. If a failure to register oc
curs it is' a bar to voting in June or No
vember. Baker City Democrat.

E( S. McComa returned yesterday
irfornlnf from 'Ssnake river, where he and
UCapUU -Thman-wtnt- to-took af ttr
their dredging interests. He left Captain
Thompson at the Kankakee dredger,
where he will remain for a few days to
superintend the placing in position of the
dredger's stacker. The Golden Giant
dredger was put in operation last Monday
by Captain Crossman witli a full crew
for day work, and he has a crew under
training, and in the near future will be
operating night and day. Captain Cross
man says that the Golden Giant handled
3,600 cubic yards in 36 hours, and that
he could not obtain a color by pan
ning the dump. All the parties interested
in '(his enterprise are much encouraged lit
the belief ihat they have solved the prob
lem of handling Snake river gravel ut a
profit that will open a very extensive new
field of mining industry. Maker City

Rich Ore in the Canton.
Last Wednesday William Keese and
his associates In the Canton mine at
Alamo, when in about three hundrxd feet
on their tunnel and one hundred aira fifty
feet below the surface, struck a body of
ore that showed the gold sticking out all
over It in great big chunks, so the current
rumor in Granite has it. Whatever the
precise facts may be, it is certain that the
boys have made a very rich strike and in
consequence the Canton will soon take
rank as one more of the big mines of tire
Granitt district. Granite Routdcr.
