THE SUMPTER MINER
Colonel Grayson Talks About
Meeting of American
Colonol John Temple Grayson, general
manager of the Alpine, accompanied by
his daughter, Miss Kvelyne, arrived
from Portland last week and spent sev
eral days at the procrty, returning
Monday. The sawmill recently inntall
d to cut lumber for the treating plant
soon to bo built, Colonel Grayson states
will be ready for operation in a few days.
The machinery for the stamp mill pur
chased of the Risdon company of San
Francisco is now enroute and its early
arrival is expected.
Colonel Grayson is a member of the
executive committee of the American
Mining Congress. 8neaking of the com
ing meeting at Dead wood and Lead,
South Dakota, and the importance of
the Sumpter district's being represent
ed, he said:
"This meeting will be of vast import
ance to the mining industry and should
call together a representative body of
mining men from till over the country.
There has been a feeling among active
mine operators for n long timo that this
Important industry has not received
proper recognition by the federal gov
ernment, and that legislation looking
toward bringing about a moro perfect
co-operation between the government
and the development of the mining in
terests of the the country should be en
acted. Attention will be called to this
feature at the Deadwood-Lead meeting,
which convenes on September 7. With
the end in view stated a strong legisla
tive committee has been uppointed, and
steps will be taken to bring the matter
before congress in the protrer form.
''By all means Sumpter should have a
representation at the meeting. I havo
authorized your mayor to appoint three
representative mining men to attend,
and for the generul good of the industry
in Eastern Oregon it is to be hoped that
the matter will receive due attention."
It is probablo that steps will be taken
at the meeting toward the recommenda
tion to congress for the creution of a fed
eral department of mining, with powers
co-extensive with the other executive
departments. In the event of such a
creation, Colonel Grayson is popularly
mentioned as a suitable candidate for
secretary of this department.
Whim to Be lattalled at One, Says
A. L. McEwen, superintendent of the
Forty-Nine Jimmie, in the Greenhorn
district, was in from the property yes
terday on his way to Uaker City. The
shaft, he states, is down thirty-five feet
on the ledge and he will sink ISO feet
and then start drifting. The vein is to
be thoroughly explored. Ttie Virginia,
Minnesota, people who recently took
over this property mean to carry on de
velopment operations as rapidly as pos
sible. Superintendent McEwen says that a
horse whim is to be installed ut once and
later, when conditions demand, a hoist
will be put in.
Think They Have Mother Lode.
Graves Brothers, owners of the Great
American claim, where the rich strike
was recently made, state that they have
cut out the gouge matter along the ledge
and squared up the workings for winter.
It is not probable they will resume work
again on the property this fall. They
believe they undoubtedly have the
mother lode of that section.
Midway Boiler Delivered After Being Fif
teen Day Enroute.
After a perilous journey of fifteen
days, the Midway boiler reached the
proerty Monday night, safe and sound,
has been set and will be ready for oper
atlon the last of the week. The entire
distance traversed was seven miles, the
rate of speed, therefore, being less than
half ii mile a day. This slow transporta
tion was due to the bad condition of tho
bridges, several of which were smashed
The attention of the county commit
sioners has been repeatedly called to the
Cracker Creek road and tho insecurity
of the bridges, and it is understood that
steps are to be taken at once toward
Timber and Homestead Filings.
Timber and homestead tilings, as well
as flnal proofs, can be made before
