THE SUMPTER MINER.
NO OTHER CAMP LIKE IT
Colorado Miner Thinks This
District a World Beater.
J. A. Ryan, a Colorado mining man of
twenty-live years experience, has been in
this camp for the last three months, which
has given him a chance to thoroughly
study the opportunities presented for In
vestment. In a recent conversation Mr.
Ryan said that he had never seen or heard
of a district that has as many real good
offerings as tills, and that if it were in
Colorado instead of Oregon, there would
be one thousand dollars change hands for
properties where there is one dollar now.
Resides the Colorado country, Mr.
Ryan has operated n Utah, Montana,
Idaho, Washington, and British Colum
bia. In the latter place he opened up the
famous Payne property for S. S. Bailey,
and afterward the Kootenay and Colum
bia and Crown Point mines at Hossland.
He is particularly favorable to the Bon
anza camp, where he examined some of
the partially developed claims, like the
Kerns property, the Surprise, War Eagle
and others. In mentioning the War
Eagle he said:
"With the amount of worl done at the
rresent time, it has the finest showing
seen in the entire camp and that, judging
from surface indications, the lead must be
100 feet wide."
Mis idea was that tills property, with
Intelligent development, would doubtless
make one of the big mines of the camp,
as they are working in practically free
Oregon Mining Stock Exchange.
The Oregon Mining Stock Exchange,
Chamber of Commerce building, Port
land, will open for first call about June i,
unless detained by workmen in the ex
change. Lieutenant Governor Joseph
H. Hutchinson, of Idaho, has accepted an
invitation to open the exchange. Gov
ernor Hutchinson is manager of a large
company at Silver City, Idaho. "Joe,"
;is he is known In Colorado, before loca
ting in Idaho, became the favorite caller
on the Colorado exchanges, and recently
refused an offer of Sio.ooo a year to ie-
turn to Colorado and act as caller In the
Colorado Springs Stock association, pre
ferring to cast his lot in, as he expressed
it, tile possibilities ot the great Northwest.
Governor Geer will be invited to Intro-,
duce Governor Hutchinson. The opening
call will be preceded by a reception and
banquet at the Portland lo Governor '
Hutchinson and the visiting brokers.
Secretary Prank J. Hard is busy on ar
rangements, and detailed report will be
rurnished in a day or two. Telegram.

Blue Mountain Hot Springs.
M.inv people in eastern Oregon are not
aware that within ten miles of this town
is a public resort that has natural advan-1
tages second U none in the Pacific North
west. Messrs.Thompson & WII.ox, own
ers and proprietors, have a most valuable
property in possessing the Blue Mountain
hot springs, at head of John Day river.
They already have a commodious hotel,
which Is patronized winter and summer j
by persons from a distance, as well as by
residents of the surrounding country.
The water is of a tepid nature, and being
well mineralized has raremedicln.il virtues,
and is said to be very helpful to invalids
and luxurious to pleasure seekers. With
the growth of Prairie City and vicin
ity the owners of these springs fore-
' see the benefits they will derive and are i
I arranging to make more improvements
I for their patrons. Employes have been
1 engaged to begin work next week in con
structing a swimming bath, and William
