THE Grizzly group consists of the "Colorado" and the "Colorado Extension" quartz mineral claims, situated
in the Sumpter District of Baker county, Oregon, six miles northwest 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 the Grizzly group has disclosed a gold bear
ing ledge of remarkably high value, a force of men are now at work and there is every reason to expect the prop
erty will become one of the greatest mines in Oregon.

Work at the Oregon Wonder.
Iu company with Sig Diirkheimer the
Miner man islted the Oregon Wonder
i.imp last S111ul.1v, In approaching the
1. imp one wuulJ imagine trom the number
ol horses tied tn trees and the number of
people around the tents that a genuine old
fashioned Missouri camp meeting was in
progress. All that was lacking was Sam
Jones or some other noted evangelist. A
doieu or so people living iu that neighbor
hood had congregated there, besides hall
a doien or so people from town, who,
with the steady borders at the camp,
made a congregation of about twenty-live
people, and they all left saying that they
enjoyed themselves, and that Mr. Morey
knew how to entertain in the mountains.
Aside from preliminary surveying and
locating water rights, etc., nothing of
consequence has been done on the Ore
gnu Wonder. The men In charge say
that no tunnel work has been commenced
and might not be for some time. The
road to the camp is in good condition and
lumber and freight Is easily hauled. The
tents, cabin and cook house are put up in
MINING LAWS OF 1852.
Some Resolutions Adopted in Southern Ore
Con at That Time.
During the early mining days on the
I Pacific coast, there was no law governing
, the location and operation of mining
1 ground. 'I Ids was always regulated by
local rules agreed upon by the miners of
! each camp. The Eagle has been handed
a copy of the mining rules adopted by the :
miners of southern Oregon, which we
understand are similar to the rules that
governed mining iu Grant county in the
early 60s. Following is the cepy:
"Resolved, first, that so yards shall ,
constitute n claim in the bed of the creek, 1
extending to high water 011 each side.
"Resolved, second, that 40 feet shall
