Vice President Sieg, of Killen
Warner Stewart Company
Charles II. .Sieg, of New York, vice
president of the Killen Warner Stewart
company, watt at thu Oregon Monarch a
fuw days ago and reports this property
looking exceptionally flue. Thu winze
being sunk on thu first vein encountered
in thu long crosscut is in ore thu full
width, which hat every indication of be-
inn high grade. This vein is over seven
feet witlu and thu values and width are
increasing with depth.
Thu crosscut is now in 1,-100 feet. In
driving this distance seven Reed veins
went cut. This crosscut is huing driven
for thu Golden Monarch lead of the Ited
Hoy, which will probably ho encounter
ed he fore long. It has already heoli car
ried further than was at first thought
necessary, as thu vein Ih dipping away
to the west. Whilo in this particular
thu management has had to expend
more work than was anticipated when
operations weru started, thu fact that
seven other good veins have leen en
countered more than pays for thu unex
pected length of thu crosscut. These
veins will he thoroughly opened ttpafter
thu main lead is cut. Thu crosscut gives
a depth of I MX) feet under thu apex of thu

over the showing the property is mak

E. & E. TO RESUME
Hoisting Plant Received and
Preliminary Work Begun.
It is understood that operations are to
In resumed at thu K. it K. in a short
time. A small hoisting plant has been
received and contracts, it is stated, let
for H.OOO cords of wood.
Sueriutitudunt Thomas took charge
of thu proNtrty somo time ago, and it
wasstatetl at thu time that preliminary
work toward gutting thu propurty in
shape foroperatiou was to begin. Slnco
then thu matters in litigation have beun
settled, thu fatuous old mine passing
hack to thu control of Jonathan Ilournu.
WORK AT BEAR GULCH.
Will Reach Ledge in About Two Weelr,
Il Is Thought.
At thu Hear Gulch property where
thu strike in limestone was made re
cently, the crosscut is now alxmt twenty
live feet distant from the ledgu. This
will give ii depth of about tlfty feet.
Mr. Camp thiiiKs hu will reach thu
vein In about two weeks. Thu run of
ore from the overllow gave satisfactory
results at thu Sumpter Sampling Works.

"Ah a matter of course, my first inter
est was to tnko in thu Cracker Eagle.
Thu development work in this meets my
approval. Generally shaking, the
Sumpter district presents grent Kpsibll
ities. With tho judicious expenditure
of capital, I am fully persuaded that the
natural conditions hero afford tho mak
ing of one of thu greatest mining dis
tricts in the country. It is all a matter
of capital and development. The mill
