Fully Paid and Non-Assessable
THE COMPANY owns four claims, all adjoining, and a mill site,
being 6000 feet in length by 600 feet wide, and the mill site covers
five acres. The claims are known as Chance, American, Gold Hill
and Grand Prize, and the American mill site. These claims are lo
cated about live miles west from Sumpter, Baker County, Oregon, and are reached by a good wagon road and
are surrounded by developed properties, such as the famous Ibex, Maiden's Dream, Evening Star, and several
other promising mines. There is ample timber and water on the ground for all mining purposes.
DEVELOPMENT. Since March, 1900, the company has done over 500 feet of miscellaneous work,
to determine the best method of permanent mining and have reached a depth of over 160 feet, where values
have varied from ten to several hundred dollars per ton, with better than 15 AVERAGE VALUES.
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
II HI-.INGa foregone conclusion from (he development already made Hint the Umpqua group of mines, with proper opening,
cm lie made one of the dividend payers of Oregon, and that rich ore todies can he opened up with a reasnrable expenditure
of mniiev in a short spaic ol time, and the management heing exceeding anxious to push the development work, hy either
drilling r sinking from the end of cross-cut tunnel or hy running a crosscut It veer down nu the creek, (which will he shnit) then
diilt on vein and depth will he gained as work proceeds, and ore will he taken out at all times. In order to raise the money re
lulled fur immediate use, the company has decided to place lor sale
50,000 SHARES OF THE STOCK AT 3 CENTS PER SHARE
id miiIi persons as may It offeied an opportunity to purchase. 1 he light to withdraw the stock from sale without notice is how
evet reserved hv thec'ompanv.

Colorado Men Stampeding to Oregon.
A prominent mining man arrived from
' Colorado last week. In .1 conversation
, with a Republican man last evening he had
a great deal to say about this district, hut
I requested that his name he not men
I Honed. He has had years of experience
J in mining in Cripple Creek and other
prominent camps In Colorado and knows
. until h'irfntf riii U u li,t lii- s-ic It Hi. '
I ''" -
j said: "lii tliis district we come In contact
with lock that in some cases looks Iden
tically the same as some found in Cripple
Creek. I notice that Colorado mining
men are Hocking here like a band of sheep.
When we see Colorado mining men com-
I iug into a camp it is a good indication that
I there Is something in sight. I took a trip
to the Vlitue dlslrkt about two days ago
'and examined the oie very closely, and in
' mv estimation this camp has a gte.it tuture
' belore It. 1 here aie manv good mines in
i tills district that have large and well
1 equipped mills upon them and are paying
1 well, hut there are a great many more
i mines with In grade ore that, If properly
' w 01 ked, would leave a great mirgiu of
t proht. The necessity for treating this
I grade of ore in this vicinity is at the pres
i ent time pressing. The milling and gen
eral treatment ot ore does not present any
special dllficulilesand I see unreason why
the present number of paying mines could
not be doubled. You must, I suppose, ex
pect to see .1 great many failures among
them, but many of them will undoubtedly
become dividend paying properties. Re
