The Grizzly "roup consists of the "Col
orado" and the "Colorado Extension" quartz
mineral claims, situated in the Sumpter Dis
trict of linker countv, Oregon, six miles north
west of the town of Sumpter, forming part of
the rich mineral zone wherein are located
producing mines of fabulous wealth, such as
the "North Pole," "Columbia," "Golconda,"
"bonanza" etc., etc. Development work on
l;or Prospectus and General Information address
the Grizzly group has disclosed a gold bear
ing ledge of remarkably high value and there
is every reason to expect the property will
become one of the greatest mines in Oregon.
A limited amount of Treasury Stock is
offered for sale at SIX CENTS per
share. Subscriptions for stock may be sent
to the First Bank of Sumpter, Sumpter, Ore.

Roy Miller has sold hall of block No.

on which the plant will be built. I'hls is
the second block from the river, on the
south side of (irauite, facing tliat stieel.
Work on the buildings will be commenced
at once, and will be finished In about
Ihittv dav. Hie institution will be in
operation lu less than two months.
I he machinery to be used is that now
In a plant at Astotii, which .Mr. Cannon
has recently come into possession of
tluoui;h some business transaction. He
.y it is all ol the best modem type, as
good as ne v and cost originally consider'
abl v over io.ooo. It w ill be shipped here
in a lew days.
It is scauelv uecessiry to point out the ,
I vast benelits which will accrue to Sump
ter from the establishment hereof such an
i institution. Its elfect will be to still
! more firmly li. this as the mining center
i ol eastern Oregon, because all the sur
j rounding miners will then come here to
i have their machine! y repaired, and no In
I considerate amount ol it mauulactured.
I Heretofore all of this work has passed
i through Sumpter and been taken to Maker
City, where a good plant Is in operation;
! or else sent to Portland. And such an
j establishment wll. be a liuaiicial sticces,
I too, lor there Is anv i)iiautitv of such
lw.uk done in the immediite iciuity ol
Union County Corptr Mines.
I I'he mines hi theciipperdisttlctol Union
county are making a splendid showing
, and gaining a reputation as the coming
copper lields of the west. A. I. Vaughn,
one ol the locators ol the now Unions
Vaughn mine in Union countv, said a tew
davs age: "Neer in the history ol min
ing in eastern Oregon has there been such
development in our copper belt, and so
manv good properties opened as are now
show u alorg Snake river. We are inter
ested in many properties lor miles up and
down the liver, lu tunnel No. i ol the
Iron Dyke, we uncovered the other day
copper pvrites which go 2't per cent lu
copper and show good values in gold.
The (Way liagle, another property on a
parallel ledge with the Iron Dyke was ex
tensively developed during the past
winter, and now shows tremendously
licit co jper pyrites and gold. We have
had many good offers lor this property,
but believe that it is good enough to keep.

Attempted Jail Break Foiled.
Officials connected with the sheriff's
ollice have discovered and are now pre
pared to thwart i plan for a general deliv
ery from the county jail In this city.
I'hursday afternoon surpicious action on
the part of certain inmates of the jail
aroused the attention of the deputies and
a strict watch was immediately placed on
all the prisoners, with the result that late
Iliursday evening one of the guards sta
tioned on the south side of the court house
discovered the prisoners actively engaged
in sawing the steel bars which protect the
corrodor windows. The deputy from his
post of observation, had only a narrow
crevice in tile wall to peep through and
could not make out distinctly the party
using the saw, and in anticipation of fur
ther work on the bars Ivlng attempted,
nothing lias been Intimated to the prison
ers tliat their little plan had been discov
ered. However, since the attempt was
brought to light, the Inmates have all
been kept In their cells, excepting during
meal time, at which time a strict watch is
kept on them. Singularly enough, im
mediately upnji the discovery by the dep
uty ol the attempt at delivery, the sawing
ceased. One ol the bars had been sawed
half lu twain, and the crevice Idled with
beeswax. It Is thought that the fact of
their being kept in the cells has aroused
their suspicions, as heretofore they have i
been granted much freedom. There are
six prisoners conltned in the comity jail.
All parties liolJing cliims against the
Sumpter Water company, proper, are re
quested to present them to the company's
oliice lor examination and audit. i
