State Meeting Called for Same
Day as Mining Congress.
Max Shillock, secretary of the Port
land Board of Trade, is sending out let
ters to the press of the state asking that
as much publicity as possible be given to
the meeting called September 7 in that
city for the purpose of organizing a per
manent state mining men's association.
Whilo the object of this meeting is in
deed a worthy one, and much good will.
doubtless result from such an organiza
tion, the date selected was unfortunate,
inasmuch as it conflicts with the one
chosen for the meeting of the American
Mining Congress at Dead wood and Lead,
It has been suggested, and the sugges
tion seems eminently in place, that the
Oregon mining men instead of running
in opposition to the American Mining
Congress, get together and send a big
delegation to the national body, and
later hold a state meeting and organize
an auxiliary association. It is not too
late to change the date of the state
meeting and this would seem the proper
thing to do.
An exchange says that the citizens of
Olinghouse Canyon, in the state of Ne
vada, have been having great trouble
with their chicken?, which have been
dying Middenly in great numbers. An
examination of some of the. dead chick
ens develops the fact that they havo
been picking up gold nuggets to such an
extent that they overloaded their giz
zards and the weight of the gold broke
the chickens' backs.

A cam shaft wus broken at the mill re
cently, occaHiouing some delay. Mr.
Melklu states that he will have fifteen
of the twenty stumps running on his re
turn. The Black Kuglo has made an excep
tional milling record. The ore is mined
and milled at a total cost of sixty-eight
cents a ton. While it is a low grade
proposition, with large bodies in sight
from which the oro can be literally
quarried, some of the values run excep
tionally high, Superintendent Meikle
Owing to the immensity of the ore
and the cheapness with which it can be
worked, the company will probably

stamps in the near future.
