Wednesday, May 2. 1900. 10 THE SUMPTER MINER. county from time to time presents new and unfailing proof of its mineral wealth. Until very recently the prospector gave I no attention to any other mineral in this district except gold. The discovery made i by Mr. Strock Is another proof that there J are large copper deposits in this district, j which in time are likely to develop into i properties little thought of in the past. At the adjourned meeting of the clty Mr. Strock has money to develop the new council last evening the street lighting or-! "d a"d w"' ntnl? " NEWS NOTES FROM GRANITE. TEN STREET LIGHTS.

Rich Coprr Strike on Salmon Creek, What Is said to be one ot the most promising copper luuls yet discovered in eastern Oregon, was discoveted by J. S. Shock, an old prospector and mining mac. The lind was made Sunday on the west slope of Salmon cteek.near thr Tom Paine ( mine, about nine miles west of Raker City. The lode Is about 20 feet wide and cariles copper bearing jo per cent. It is' in a district that has heretofore been prac tically overlooked for that valuable miner al. Should the values stay at par throughout the limit of the lode, the find will prove to be of Immense value. Baker ' by fall. John Edgar and Mr. Ret.er's brothers, George and Will, are the other owners of the property. (Jem. There are several projects on foot for giving Granite and Sumpter better wagon ' road communication. One of these is to build a wagon road from the Ibex mine, near the summit of the Blue mountain range, into Granite, there being a fairly good wagon road from (lie Ibex east Into Sumpter already. The Ibex route, it is' believed, would be a good one the year round. The other proposition is to im prove the present wagon road between Granite and Sumpter. li. J. Godtrey, of , the Red Hoy mine, will endeavor to inter est the people of Sumpter In the import ance of improving this road and will doubt-, less succeed. Matetial Improvements in the road between Granite and the Red hoy mine have already been made. Gem. Don't forget to register.
