We Imve decided to place upon tliu market 101,000 dmre of the treasury wools for the "ole purpose of preparing the "STOHM
KING" roup In oomlitioii for h mill in the early nprintf. VW will ipinte you "extracts from the reports written by the lcst mining
authorities in Oregon, which will show conclusively the woiiilerfnl rii-hn-s of the STOHM KING group of seven claims situated in the
Cable Cove Mining District of Knstern Oregon, operated hv t ! "KKiT MIXING COMPANY of Sumpter, Oregon
"In making my report I will commence with the Kureka and Honest Dollar claim. The ilevelopment on these con-ists of nil
ndit NMnety-seven feet in length ; showing two feet and ten inches of ore in the ton; and a little over three feet wide in the bottom.
With assays ranging from fit 08 to $70 er ton in gold. About four hundred feet In a southwe-t ilirection there i a shaft on the vein
ten feet deep, showing the vein to lie twelve inches wide in the bottom, from which I dug average -ample from which I secured from
U.7tl 'o HO in free milling ore.

"The character of these veins vary in width from Til II KK FBKT to TWKNTK TIIKKK FKKT as fouml in -the liottoiu of the
shaft on the Kureka ledge (See Note) 'Mineralogy', the pay tiartr. is characterized by arsenopyrite, and also by pyrite in minute
"The ore contains sulphrets bot!i in arsnopyrites an'd pyr'.te torm.
"Gold predominates in the FOIIKST properties, and is of altnot universal occurrence. The free milling gold being that part
amenable to plate amalgamation and will vary from 40 per cent to ft) kt cent per ton.
"I find some gray coper, aud considerable cuprite, or oxide. The eoper which this ore carries is valuable; and with depth
there io little doubt but these values will increase. In the many assays made the copper was found to run fiom ft to .'W per cent.

We will not bother you with theories, nor fanciful language to support our contention. Plain facts is what you want, ami plain
facts is what we will offer you, to induce you to become identified with us in the making of one of the finest properties ever offered to
the public. Organize a club, then send an expert to examine the "STOHM KING" MINKS, he will easily satisfy you of the richness,
of our property.
"Note" The increased depth of the shaft mentioned in Professor Kberman's report was done in the interval between his ex
amination (Bid that of Captain I'aul. It was only done to prove conclusively the permanency of our ledge-.
All the ledges can be easily worked by tunnels, thereby saving vast sums of money.

to the Maiden's Dream group of
claims, couslstiug of two quartz aud
lie says the story of the suit and
verdiot, as published iu The .Miner
yesterday, creates a false impression,
though iriHccurate iu only one point.
It was au error iu saying that the
placer claim reverts to the govern,
uieut, because the assessment work
had not beeu performed, ills client
holds it uuder locatiou made Decern.

work bad not been doue. This
ground, which includes the mouth of
tbe tuunel opening up the quartz
claim b. aud tbe buildings thereon
was awarded to A. J. Stluson.
Title to the quartz claims alto
rest largely ou the assessment work
Tbe verdict, be says, was a com
promise which does not satisfy either
himself or his client, and a motion
will be mado for a new trial. Jf this
Is denied, tbe case will be appealed
to tbe Superior court. Ills most im
portant witness could not attend the
trial at that time. Ho it seems that
the case is far from being disposed

Fortunes Made hi Miffing.
The uuparallelled prosperity of
the mining industry at tbe present
time has caused widespread public
attention. Fortunes are to be oh
tained by following mining aud by
Investing in mining stocks, and tbe
business men of today are realizing
ths fact and profiting by it as in no
other period of our history. There
is an element of hazard Iu every busi
ness, but not as great a risk iu mill
ing as baa lieen Imagined iu tbe past.
Mlulng baa beeu reduced to a busi
ness. Improved machinery, scientific
knowledge aud business management
place- mining ou as safe a plane of
operution as that of auy busiuess re
quiring all of these elements. Mil
lionaires and multi-millionaires are
made in tbe marvelous busiuess of
mining. Where a company exeraises
great care in the selection of its prop
erties, expends sufficient mouey in
telligently aud well, every stock
holder of that company will be bene
flted by rapid advancement of bis
stock and by rich returns from tbe
mines. National Banker.
.John IS. Cassiti, secretary and
treasurer of the Akron company, aud
W. II. Kisenhour, one of tbe heavy
.stockholders, returned from the prop
I erty today, where they have been
conducting Investigations with a view
I to installing a cyanide plant, aud
left for Spokane. They were acouin
I pauied by G. W. Boggs aud his sou
Kay, who were there to make tests of
the ore to the eud stated.
Before leaving Mr. Casslu stated
to a .Miner represeutative that, a cya
nide plaut had beeu definitely de
cided upon, and will be Installed
I just as soou as all the tests have been
completed. No conclusion will -be
reached concerning the style of plaut
uutil these are all In. Dr. Ileudryx
is testing some of the ore with his
agitator, but the results are not
known. The mill is now closed, aud
will nut resume uutil after a cyanide
process has beeu installed. This
mutter Is to decided as soou as possi
ble. Mr. Hoggs says that he regards
the Alamo as a first class oyauldiiig
